A federal grand jury returned an indictment Wednesday alleging the Department of Corrections (DOC) officers conspired last August to violate the civil rights of an inmate at the NWFRC. Named in the indictment are William F. Finch, 35, of Wausau; Dalton E. Riley, 24, of Bethlehem; James F. Perkins, 39, of Graceville; Robert L. Miller, 48, of Lynn Haven; and Christopher B. Christmas, 32, of Chipley. The men already face state charges of malicious felony battery on an inmate. Excluded from the indictment is former Capt. James Kirkland, who was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after state charges of malicious felony battery on an inmate were brought against the officers. The arrests stemmed from an Aug. 5 incident involving 31-year-old inmate Jeremiah L. Tatum. Kirkland, the superior officer, had been arrested earlier on additional charges of official misconduct after he allegedly orchestrated the incident and then pressured subordinate officers to sign fictitious reports. Rep. Graham’s first bill would help veterans By JOHN HENDERS ON 522-5108 | @PC N Hjohn PANAMA CI T Y — U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham announced her first piece of legislation Wednesday, calling for hiring and training more recovery coordinators to help the most seriously injured and ill post-9/11 veterans. Graham, standing with North Florida veterans at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City where some of the new hires could train for the program, announced her plans to file HR 914, known as the VETS Act, an acronym for Veterans, Education and Training Act. “When I thought about what type of first bill I wanted to offer, I could think of no better opportunity than to recognize the men and women that have served our country so admirably,” said Graham, D-Tallahassee. The bill calls for expanding an existing recovery coordinator program, which has 17 coordinators nationwide who work for the Department of RE P. GWE N G R A H AM Court upholds ban on openly carrying guns By JIM S A UNDERS T he N ews Service of Florida T ALLA H A SS EE — In what judges described as a first-of-its-kind case, an appeals court Wednesday upheld a Florida law that prevents people from openly carrying firearms, finding the restriction does not violate constitutional rights to bear arms. The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 4th District Court of Appeal stemmed from the 2012 arrest in Fort Pierce of Dale Norman, who was openly carrying a gun in a holster. A jury found Norman guilty of a second-degree misdemeanor charge, leading to the appeal on constitutional grounds. The appeals court said the state law does not “destroy the core right of self-defense enshrined in the Second Amendment” and in part of the Florida Constitution that guarantees the right to keep and bear arms. Also, it pointed to the ability of people to get concealed-weapons permits. “Florida’s requirements to obtain a permit for concealed carry are not so burdensome, or so onerous, as to make the ability to obtain a permit illusory,” said the 27-page ruling, written by Judge Mark Klingensmith and joined by judges Melanie May and Cory Ciklin. “Nor can it be said that these requirements, unlike those found in other (state) jurisdictions, make the right to carry a weapon in public a virtual nullity.” The ruling described the case as presenting a question of “first impression” about whether the Second Amendment forbids the state from banning the open carrying of firearms while allowing people to carry concealed weapons under a permitting system. In legal terms, a question of “first impression” indicates a first-of-its-kind decision. By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh PANAMA CI T Y — Medical tourism is enough of a trend in Florida that state lawmakers will consider a bill to have the Division of Tourism and Marketing promote it. Bay County is not yet a hot spot for medical tourism, but there is at least one exception. Gulf Coast Facial Plastics has been a proponent of medical tourism for 20 years. It has had patients come from Norway, China, Egypt, Bulgaria, Italy and England. About 20 percent of group’s business comes from outside the state. “We’re out there because Florida is an international state,” Dr. Daniel Daube said. Gulf Coast has its own condo for out-of-town patients to use. Daube said part of the appeal of his Panama City office is anonymity. He has done work for people in show business, driven by a thriving market of tabloids that specialize in plastic surgery speculation. Daube said HDTV — with its revealing, high-resolution picture — is his hero with the amount of business it has brought. However, clients from Birmingham, Ala., and Atlanta also use Gulf Coast’s back door. Daube and Drs. James Beggs, Brian Gibson, Vicki Nowak and Stephen J. Toner are the staff at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center. Daube only does facial work such as cheek and lip implants, laser resurfacing, face-lifts, nose reconstruction and injectibles such as Botox and the cutting-edge product Restylane Silk that can make lips fuller and repair lines around the mouth. Daube’s procedures vary from 15 minutes for injectibles to an entire day for multiple procedures. Many times clients will be back on a plane the same day, he said. S tay out of the sun If prospective patients think they can have surgery and lounge on the beach, they’re mistaken.

Meteor going 45,000 mph lights up sky A meteor moving at 45,000 mph lit up the sky over western Pennsylvania. NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office said the space rock measuring 2 feet in diameter and weighing about 500 pounds entered Earth’s atmosphere above the Pittsburgh suburbs about 4:50 a.m. Tuesday. It could be seen in Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio. NASA said cameras detected the rock at an altitude of 60 miles above Beaver Falls, northwest of Pittsburgh. The agency said it flared brighter than a full moon as it descended to an altitude of 13 miles above Kittanning, northeast of Pittsburgh. The agency said the meteor likely came from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. NASA said meteorite fragments could be scattered on the ground east of Kittanning. MAPUTO, Mozambique Man netted in poisoned beer deaths A man suspected of poisoning the traditional beer that killed more than 70 people has been arrested, Mozambican police said Wednesday. Graciano Antonio was arrested while trying to flee, provincial police spokesman Luis Nudia said. He has been taken to the capital of the northeast Tete province, where he will be charged by the attorney general’s office. “Now the attorney general’s office is investigating the man and which substance he used to poison the people and to know the real motives,” Nudia said. Almost 200 people were hospitalized after drinking traditional beer at a funeral in the region last month, health authorities said. Pombe beer is made from millet or corn flour and brewed for about two days. The beer was believed to be poisoned with crocodile bile, a body fluid produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder, health authorities said, but experts have cast doubt on whether bile is poisonous. PHOENIX Man buys watch for $6, sells for $35,000 A watch collector spotted a rare Swiss timepiece in a Phoenix secondhand store, bought it on sale for $5.99 and then sold it for $35,000. Zach Norris said he perused a Goodwill store’s watch section when he went shopping for a golf cart there in January. Norris said he was excited when he recognized the 1959 Jaeger-LeCoultre diving watch. Paul White, vice president of Scottsdale-based Oliver Smith Jeweler, a dealer for the brand, said a watchmaker authenticated Norris’ discovery. Norris shared his good fortune on a website for watch collectors, and another enthusiast bought it. He said the proceeds will help pay for his wedding. Goodwill spokeswoman Summer Dunham said Norris’ find shows there are deals to be had at the thrift stores. MADRID Codex thief gets 10-year sentence A Spanish court has sentenced a former electrician for Spain’s famed Santiago de Compostela cathedral to 10 years in prison after convicting him of stealing a priceless 12th-century Codex Calixtinus, considered the first guide for Christians making the pilgrimage to venerate St. James. In a ruling Wednesday, the court in A Coruna city convicted Jose Manuel Fernandez Castineiras of theft and money laundering. Authorities found the richly decorated Codex, which went missing in 2011, in his garage. During the January trial, Castineiras, who is in his 60s, insisted he could not remember confessing to the theft. Authorities who searched his home in 2012 also found other valuable religious works and recovered more than $1.1 million. Tens of thousands of people make the pilgrimage to Santiago each year. Obama says U . S . at war with terrorists, not Islam WASHINGTON (AP) — Muslims in the U.S. and around the world have a responsibility to fight a misconception that such terrorist groups as the Islamic State speak for them, President Barack Obama said Wednesday in his most direct remarks yet about any link between Islam and terrorism. For weeks, the White House has sidestepped the question of whether deadly terror attacks in Paris and other Western cities amount to “Islamic extremism,” wary of offending a major world religion or lending credibility to the “war on terror” that Obama’s predecessor waged. But as he hosted a White House summit on countering violent extremism, the president said some in Muslim communities have bought into the notion that Islam is incompatible with tolerance and modern life. “We are not at war with Islam,” Obama said. “We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.” While putting the blame on IS and similar groups — Obama said the militants masquerade as religious leaders but really are terrorists — the president also appealed directly to prominent Muslims to do more to distance themselves from brutal ideologies. He said all have a duty to “speak up very clearly” in opposition to violence against innocent people. “Just as leaders like myself reject the notion that terrorists like ISIL genuinely represent Islam, Muslim leaders need to do more to discredit the notion that our nations are determined to suppress Islam,” Obama said. Issuing such a direct challenge to Muslims marked a clear departure from the restrained, cautious language Obama and his aides have used to describe the situation in the past. In the days after last month’s shootings at a satirical French newspaper that had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad, Obama avoided calling the attack an example of “Islamic extremism,” and instead opted for the more generic “violent extremism.” Recently, the White House also struggled to explain whether the U.S. believes the Afghan Taliban to be a terrorist organization. The refusal to directly assess any Islamic role in the terrifying scenes playing out in Europe, the Mideast and Africa has drawn criticism from those who say Obama has prioritized political correctness over a frank acknowledgement of reality. National security hawks, in particular, argued that Obama’s counterterrorism strategy could not be successful if the president was unable or unwilling to confront the true nature of the threat. White House aides said they were avoiding associating the attacks with Islam for the sake of “accuracy” and to avoid lending credence to the terrorists’ own justification for violence — a strict interpretation of Islam. Frustrated by what they deemed a manufactured controversy, Obama aides have argued that a focus on terminology has distracted from more fruitful conversations about what actually can be done to stop extremist ideologies from spreading. “ We are at war with people who have perverted Islam. Just as leaders like myself reject the notion that terrorists like ISIL genuinely represent Islam, Muslim leaders need to do more to discredit the notion that our nations are determined to suppress Islam.” — President Barack Obama U.S.-led coalition meets in Saudi Arabia RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Military chiefs from 26 nations involved in the U.S.-led coalition battling the Islamic State group began a two-day meeting in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, the Saudi Press Agency reported. SPA said the meeting was aimed at giving military leaders an opportunity to exchange views about the fight against the extremist group, which controls large parts of Iraq and Syria. The head of the U.S. military’s Central Command, Gen. Lloyd Austin, was taking part in the meeting and earlier met with Interior Minister and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef in the Saudi capital of Riyadh. The Arab countries of Jordan, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have taken part in coalition air raids on the IS group. Qatar and Kuwait have provided bases for coalition partners. Other nations taking part include Canada, France, Germany, the U.K., Australia and the Netherlands. The SPA said the military chiefs also would discuss the civil war in Syria, where more than 220,000 people have been killed during the past four years. It is the fifth meeting of its kind for the coalition, with previous meetings taking place in Jordan, France, Germany and the U.S. TUESDAY’S LATE NUMBERS Fantasy 5 . ........... . 1-4-8-33-36

The U.S. Court of Military Commission Review struck down the March 2007 conviction of David Hicks in a unanimous ruling that reverses what had been one of the government’s few successes in prosecuting prisoners at Guantanamo. Attorney Wells Dixon said he immediately called Hicks’ attorney in Australia, where it was the middle of the night, to pass on the news. “David is aware of the decision and he is thrilled,” Dixon said. “He is free to live his life without this conviction hanging over his head.” Hicks, 39, pleaded guilty to providing material support to terrorism. It was a plea bargain in which all but nine months of his seven-year sentence was suspended and he was allowed to return home by the end of that year. In 2014, an appeals court ruled that material support was not a legally viable war crime for the special wartime court at Guantanamo known as a military commission. Prosecutors argued his conviction should still stand because he agreed not to appeal as part of the plea deal, an argument rejected by the U.S. Court of Military Commission Review. The government has not said whether it will attempt an appeal and a Pentagon spokesman had no comment Wednesday. For Hicks, the decision is the end of an odyssey that began when he traveled to Pakistan in 2000, joined the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba and took part in an attack on Indian forces. He later traveled to Afghanistan and attended a training camp run by al-Qaida. His only real fighting experience was helping to guard a Taliban tank near the Kandahar airport. Couple accused of letting baby starve to death GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon couple involved in online pornography was arraigned Wednesday on murder by abuse charges alleging they let their baby starve to death. Stephen Michael Williams Jr., 26, and Amanda Marie Hancock, 21, of the small timber town of Glendale, are accused of causing the death of their 7-week-old son through neglect and maltreatment. The two were ordered held without bail when they appeared in Douglas County Circuit Court in Roseburg, Deputy District Attorney Shannon Sullivan said. No pleas were entered. Judge Stephen Tiktin authorized a court-appointed attorney, but the public defender’s office has not named the attorney yet, Sullivan added. The charging document says the couple showed extreme indifference to human life in causing Data Toria Hancock’s death by failing to provide him adequate food and medical care. Douglas County sheriff’s deputies said an ambulance was called to the couple’s home Jan. 22 for a report of a baby who had stopped breathing. Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. The couple was arrested Tuesday after an autopsy by the state medical examiner’s office showed the infant died of starvation. A grand jury will hear the charges next week. Lawsuit says UPS cost New York millions in cigarette tax revenue ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — UPS deprived New York of millions of dollars in revenue by shipping almost 700,000 cartons of untaxed cigarettes from Indian reservations to smokers statewide despite an earlier agreement to stop, according to a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and New York City Corporation Counsel Zachary Carter are seeking $180 million from Atlanta-based UPS, saying the cheap cigarettes increased smoking by New Yorkers while also costing $29.7 million in lost excise tax revenue from the state. UPS denied it knowingly shipped cigarettes, saying it agreed in 2005 to stop delivering cigarettes to consumers nationwide in a policy that exceeded requirements of federal and state law. The civil suit filed in Manhattan claims UPS shipped unstamped cigarettes to and from “numerous” contraband cigarette enterprises on Indian reservations in New York from 2010 to 2014, naming eight smoke shops or distributors. It seeks an injunction to halt the shipping along with damages and penalties for contraband cigarette trafficking and additional damages for enterprise corruption. “UPS has deliberately turned a blind eye to the fact that millions of dollars’ worth of untaxed cigarettes are shipped each year through its facilities,” Carter said. Schneiderman said in order to limit smoking, “the No. 1 preventable public health crisis today,” officials have to stop the flow of illegal low-cost cigarettes. The suit cites federal reports showing smoking kills more than 400,000 people in the U.S. annually and that a 10 percent price increase cuts adult smoking by 3 to 5 percent and youth smoking by 6 or 7 percent. The state excise tax on cigarettes rose in 2010 from $2.75 to $4.35 for a pack containing 20. The city tax is $1.50 per pack. That’s $58.50 for a 10-pack carton. The 2005 UPS agreement with New York’s attorney general required the company to take steps to ensure its drivers and other employees look for indications a package might contain cigarettes, keep a database of cigarette shippers and end relationships with those that tried to unlawfully use UPS to ship them. Murderer who dismembered lover ends appeal of life term TORONTO (AP) — A Canadian man dropped his appeal Wednesday of a life sentence for killing and dismembering his Chinese lover and mailing his body parts to schools and political parties. Luka Rocco Magnotta’s lawyer called the prosecution’s case overwhelmingly strong and said Magnotta didn’t want to go through it again. “Facing 12 jurors again, facing the reporters, facing the same evidence over, having his whole life put out, it’s not a pleasant experience,” attorney Luc Leclair told reporters in Montreal. Magnotta, 32, was sentenced in December to life in prison for the slaying and dismemberment of Jun Lin, a 33-year-old Chinese engineering student who had been living in Canada since 2011. The gruesome case gained international notoriety in May 2012 after a package containing a severed foot was found at the headquarters of Canada’s ruling Conservative Party. That same day, a hand was discovered at a postal facility, in a package addressed to the Liberal Party of Canada. Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase at a garbage dump outside Magnotta’s apartment building in Montreal. About a week later, the missing foot and hand were found mailed to two schools in Vancouver. Magnotta eventually was arrested in Berlin after an international manhunt. He admitted to killing and dismembering Lin but was seeking to be found not criminally responsible by way of mental disorder. Magnotta formally withdrew his appeal Wednesday as he appeared before the Quebec Court of Appeal by video from jail. Daniel Urbas, a lawyer for Lin’s father, Diran, said the family was relieved there won’t be an appeal. Urbas said the father wants to meet with Magnotta and hear him apologize: “He wants to hear some kind of remorse from the killer of his son and he would like to learn more about what happened that night.” AP Luka Rocco Magnotta is taken by police from a Canadian military plane to a waiting van in Mirabel, Quebec, on June 18, 2012.

Page A4 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 19, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD Obama chooses Clancy to lead Secret Service WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Wednesday chose the former Secret Service special agent he installed temporarily in the wake of security breaches to become the agency’s next director, brush ing aside an independent panel’s conclusion that the job should go to an outsider. Joseph Clancy will fill the position after four months as acting director. Clancy is a 27-year veteran of the agency and previously was the head of the service’s presidential protective division. He was hurriedly appointed on an interim basis last year after then-Director Julia Pierson was forced out. A panel responsible for reviewing the Secret Service and making recommendations for improvements had concluded earlier this year that the agency was too “insular” and “starving for leadership,” recommending the hiring of an outsider as the next director. “The next director will have to make difficult choices, identifying clear priorities for the organization and holding management accountable for any failure to achieve those priorities,” the group wrote after interviewing 50 Secret Service employees. “Only a director from outside the (Secret) Service, removed from organizational traditions and personal relationships, will be able to do the honest top-to-bottom reassessment this will require.” On Sept. 19, a fence-jumper carrying a knife was able to run deep into the executive mansion, prompting the agency to put a second layer of fencing around the presidential complex. Obama initially told aides he was satisfied with the changes, but then wanted new leadership after he learned he rode an elevator with a security contractor the Secret Service didn’t know was armed. Four of the agency’s highestranking officials were reassigned recently in response to a series of embarrassing problems inside the Secret Service. Earlier this month, the agency’s No. 2, Alvin “A.T.” Smith also was ousted and was transferred to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Both agencies are part of the Homeland Security Department. ICE Director Sarah Saldana told her staff that Smith would be a “senior adviser” for cybercrime. AP Three students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology take a selfie Wednesday after jokingly using mountaineering gear to make their way up a massive snow pile on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Mass. The mountain of excess snow has been dubbed “The Alps of MIT” and is being used for climbing, sledding and posing. BOSTON (AP) — Thrill-seekers jumping out windows into snowbanks and posting videos of their feats online. Snowmobilers racing through normally busy Boston streets with snowboarders in tow. And college students skiing and sledding down a colossal snow pile dubbed “Mount MIT.” New England’s winter blast is serious business, but there’s been no shortage of horseplay. “I’ve been in the house an awful lot and I’ve been getting stir-crazy, so I don’t blame people for doing stupid stuff,” said John Goodman, a Cambridge resident marveling at “Mount MIT” on Wednesday. “Everything has become an obstacle. So rather than let it continue to be an obstacle, let it become something entertaining.” Police in Boston — a city with a heavy concentration of college students — said they have not had to deal with any reports of snow-related mischief, but department spokesman Michael McCarthy urged people not to do foolish things. “Common sense would hopefully dictate a lot of what people are doing out there,” he said. “Obviously if you are sledding down mountains of snow into a lane of traffic, that’s not the best thing to be doing.” A look at some of the ways Bostonarea residents are making the most of the surreal winter landscape created by an unprecedented 8 feet of snow over the past three weeks: SNOW JUMPERS Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has been appealing to residents to stop jumping out windows into the snow, which is piled 10 feet high or more in places. “It’s a foolish thing to do, and you could kill yourself,” Walsh said this week. SNOWBOARDS, SNOWMOBILES Snowmobilers were spotted near the Boston University campus during last weekend’s storm, which dumped more than a foot of new powder. At least one snowmobiler in a video posted online had a snowboarder in tow. Boston police reminded the public that snowmobiles and other off-road vehicles are prohibited on city streets. THE ALPS OF MIT Tucked between dormitory buildings near the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus is a towering pile of snow, perhaps three stories high, dubbed “The Alps of MIT” or “Mount Cambridge.” Located in a parking lot used as a dumping ground for snow, the mountain has quickly become a popular spot for skiing, sledding and other winter pastimes. The university has put up a chain-link fence and posted “No Trespassing” signs, but that hasn’t discouraged visitors. On Wednesday, gawkers took selfies at the base of the mountain, while three MIT students in mountaineering gear scaled the snowy peaks, giggling all the way up. ICE BAR Boston residents Christopher Haynes and Kristy Nardone carved a cozy little bar out of the 9-foot mound of snow in front of their house. The Texas natives, who posted pictures of the bar on Facebook, said they held a gathering with neighbors over the weekend, serving up Moscow Mules of vodka, ginger beer and lime juice. With the snow not melting anytime soon, Haynes hopes to add seating. “We’ve been shoveling and shoveling, so it was nice to at least have some fun with it,” he said. FOR RENT: IGLOO On the website AirBnb , a few enterprising Boston-area residents have been offering up cool lodgings for rent: backyard igloos. Conrad Williams, of Stoneham, said he originally built the 7-by-4-foot snow cave for his three young children to play in. Now he is advertising a $10-a-night stay in the “snow fort/igloo,” which comes with a ventilation chimney, candlelight and wireless Internet access. “I’m thinking about putting a bed pad in there, like an inflatable type for camping,” Williams said. Sleeping bags are not included. Snowbound New Englanders taken to a few shenanigans J OS EPH C LAN C Y

Greece’s creditors have said the country has until Friday to request an extension to the 240 billion euro bailout that has kept Greece afloat since 2010 and whose main component expires on Feb. 28. But the new government in Athens, elected last month on a promise to renegotiate the bail out’s harsh spending cuts, has been adamant it cannot seek to extend a program it believes is wrong. Instead, Athens says it is preparing a request to extend its loan agreement, but not the austerity budget measures that accompanied the bailout. The divide has threatened to scuttle negotiations and increased the risk of Greece having to leave the eurozone, raising concern among European governments and global markets. “I want to believe that (the negotiations) will end well tomor row, the day after tomorrow,” Varoufakis said as he left Par liament Wednesday night. “We are on a good path. The negotia tions are showing all the signs of convergence.” However, he said, “until we reach a result, nobody can be certain.” Varoufakis said the exten sion request “will be written in a way that covers both the Greek side and the president of the Eurogroup,” referring to Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijssel bloem, who heads the meetings of eurozone finance ministers. Germany, the main European creditor, expressed deep skepti cism when Athens initially said it would ask for a loan agreement extension Tuesday night. The European Commission said it would like to see what the pro posal entailed before offering support. The United States has urged Athens and European lenders to swiftly resolve their differences. Both sides agree Greece needs external support to keep it afloat and buy time for more thorough talks. But Athens rejects the eurozone’s request that it continue the budget aus terity cuts. Amid the high tensions, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew spoke on the telephone with Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis. He “noted that failure to reach an agreement would lead to immediate hardship in Greece, that the uncertainty is not good for Europe, and that time is of the essence,” according to a Treasury Department statement. AP Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, second left, leaves the Presidential Palace after his meeting Wednesday with Greek President Karolos Papoulias in Athens. Greece: Loan extension request satisfying for Europe, Greece NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. stock market edged mostly lower on Wednesday, easing back from its latest all-time highs. The markets barely budged fol lowing the midafternoon release of minutes from the Federal Reserve’s January meeting. The transcript showed that policymakers were less likely to raise interest rates in June than investors previously thought. The decline follows two straight days of record closing highs for the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. “The market had really gath ered steam around a June tightening date, the minutes seem to have walked that back a bit,” said David Lafferty, chief market strategist at Natixis Global Asset Management. The Dow Jones industrial aver age slipped 17.73 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 18,029.85. The S&P 500 eased 0.7 point, or 0.03 percent, to 2,099.68. The index closed at an all-time high of 2,100.34 on Tuesday. The Nasdaq composite rose 7.10 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,906.36. Major stock indexes opened lower early Wednesday. Energy stocks declined as the price of oil fell amid speculation that a recent rally in crude was excessive. The price of benchmark U.S. crude, which had been rising last week, fell $1.39 to $52.14 a barrel Wednesday. The price of oil has jumped 16 per cent since bottoming out at the end of January after a seven-month slump. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils used by many U.S. refineries, fell $2 to $60.53 a barrel. Investors hammered Fossil Group’s shares after the retailer issued a disappointing fourth-quar ter earnings report and outlook. The stock fell the most among companies in the S&P 500, shedding $15.63, or 15.7 percent, to $83.69. Stocks continued to drift lower ahead of the release of the meetings from the Fed’s January meeting. But the declines eased after 2 p.m. Eastern time, when the min utes appeared to ease any concerns that the central bank would raise rates anytime soon. The minutes revealed that officials were concerned about the impact on financial markets of dropping the word “patient” from their communications, when describing how long they were willing to wait before raising rates. Stock market ends mostly lower TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — An explosion devastated a section of a major refinery on Wednesday morning, raining down ash in the area and, experts said, likely help ing to increase California gas prices, which have been creeping up in recent weeks. A huge smokestack flare — in which workers were burning off flammable product after the explo sion — could be seen for miles around. Four contractors suffered minor injuries as workers fled the site of the blast, according to Exxon Mobil Corp., which owns the refinery. The facility, a structure several stories tall, was shattered. Crews poured water onto the structure afterward, and a fire spokesman said at midday the situation was controlled. The blast happened in a recently installed processing facility, and the material involved was gaso line, Fire Department spokesman Steve Deuel said. The facility’s flare system was triggered to burn off fuel that could add to the fire, Deuel said. Residents within a mile or two reported feeling a sharp jolt that they initially thought was an earthquake. Electrical contractor Cory Mil sap-Harris, 21, was in a switch house next door to the blast site keeping an eye on three colleagues working 8 feet underground in a manhole. “Everything was going smooth. Next thing I hear sounded like heavy metal next door. There was a loud bang,” he said. “You could feel the building shake a little.” The blast reverberated in his ears despite the several layers of hearing protection he routinely wears, Milsap-Harris said. He rushed his co-workers outside, where people were running away from flames and black smoke. Brittney Davis, whose office is about a block from the refinery, said the blast sounded and felt like some thing had rammed her building. “The whole building shook. We couldn’t figure out what it was, but we stepped outside the door and the flames were shooting up from the refinery,” Davis said. “I could feel the heat from the flame.” The refinery about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles cov ers 750 acres, employs more than a thousand people, and processes an average of 155,000 barrels of crude oil per day and produces 1.8 billion gallons of gasoline per year, accord ing to Exxon Mobil.

NEW YORK (AP) — Sam sung is buying mobile-pay ment startup LoopPay as the Korean phone maker steps up to challenge Apple and its payment system on iPhones. The deal strengthens spec ulation that Samsung Elec tronics Co. plans to include mobile-payment technology in its next major phone, which is expected to be announced March 1 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Launched a year ago, LoopPay works by reproduc ing the signals from a credit card’s magnetic swipe as users tap a LoopPay device next to a retailer’s card reader. That means Loop Pay should work with most retailers’ existing payment terminals. Most other mobile-pay ment systems, including Apple Inc.’s Apple Pay, require newer terminals with wireless chips called nearfield communication, or NFC. That limits the number of retailers that can accept such payments. But LoopPay has had trou ble with some older readers; restaurants and bars often couldn’t process LoopPay transactions due to a variety of hardware and software issues. It also doesn’t work with transit fares, parking meters and other machines that require the customer to fully insert a card, like a bank ATM. Plus, it’s not clear what will happen when merchants hit an October deadline for accepting cards with stron ger security known as EMV, as LoopPay offers only the basic magnetic signals. NFC and Apple Pay equipment is newer and enabled for EMV. LoopPay is more of a retrofit — for a system being phased out. Samsung buying mobile-pay company in bid to challenge Apple

Beth Piccolo chose to spend her life serving others. First, she served her country as a Marine from 1985 to 2008. Now, she serves her community as a Marine Corps Junior ROTC teacher at Mosley High School. On Tuesday night, she was named Bay District Schools’ Teacher of the Year. Piccolo’s accomplishments include increasing annual scholarship funds for the Junior ROTC program by 40 percent in the last four years and organizing more than 60 community outreach events each year. But those just scratch the surface. Piccolo is clearly viewed with admiration and respect by her students, peers and the Marine Corps Junior ROTC program itself. The program’s regional director called her loyal, dedicated and an “intelligent individual of utmost integrity.” Her principal, Sandy Harrison, noted that Piccolo is giving her students more than just her expertise and drill instructions, she is also clearly giving them a helping hand as they reach adulthood. Female cadets who didn’t have a dress for the prom or the Marine Corps ball got a dress, Harrison noted. And in that same vein, one of the Teacher of the Year judges shared with The News Herald’s Editorial Board that Piccolo is showing her students how the discipline and lessons that are part of the Marine Corps have very real applications in civilian life. In other words, she isn’t trying to make them all fit inside the same program, but rather guiding them to their best selves and their own individual places in society. The News Herald is an annual sponsor of the Teacher of the Year program. We want to congratulate and salute Piccolo for her hard work and dedication and congratulate the other finalists, Jeff Skipper of J.R. Arnold High, Catherine Rutland of Rutherford High School, Kristen Samples of Merritt Brown Middle School and Jenny Cimato of Deer Point Elementary School. Most great teachers will never receive the gratitude that they deserve or really be paid for the sacrifices they make. Thankfully, they keep on going, helping kids and changing lives every single day the bell rings.N ATE B EELER | The Columbus Dispatch Shame of the past Our V IEW H ow many remember the prosaic phrase taught in typing 101: “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country”? Well, as if we had entered the twilight zone, this fanciful phrase became real. If the deceptive Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreements bypass Congress as anticipated on the “Fast Track” protocol (adopted for more mutually approved legislation), many bad things will follow. “Fast Track” actually prevents debate or amendments, which in doing so, contradicts the Constitution! Hopefully, in some future more enlightened time, this fact could serve to nullify a corporate coup d’etat, should it be judged by a more sympathetic Supreme Court. I heartily admire The News Herald opinion page for printing Jim Hightower’s expose of the insane capitulation of our national sovereignty (as presided over by current and two past presidents). Sadly, giant media outlets have imposed a nationwide blackout on their corporate take over. Under this cloud of darkness, even Adam Smith (godfather of capitalism) would throw up his hands in despair. In the infancy of the Industrial Revolution, Smith believed that greed could be harnessed for the common good. Perhaps it still can be but with better safeguards. Now is truly the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country! Public information however can be viewed at and . Under leaked scenarios, the “TPP” will ultimately condemn American citizens to the degrading existence borne under feudalism in the middle Ages. J A M ES R. B EE M AN Lynn Haven Free speech threat It’s disturbing to continually hear about American Christians being persecuted and/or fired from their jobs because of their biblical belief in marriage between a man and a women and what the Bible says about homosexuality. One of the recent victims of this persecution/discrimination is the Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran. Chief Cochran had over 30 years of distinguished public service as a firefighter, was selected as Atlanta’s Fire Chief in 2008, was the U.S. Fire Administrator in Washington D.C. 2009-2010 and returned as Atlanta’s Fire Chief in May 2010. His crime? A year ago, he wrote a book for a men’s Bible study at his church. On one page, he discussed sexual immorality, including homosexuality. The mayor and a gay man on the city council called it discriminatory. Cochran was suspended for one month without pay, ordered to undergo sensitivity training and then fired this January. He was clearly eliminated from his job because of his views alone! Chief Cochran said it’s a warning to every American that freedom of speech and freedom of religion are hanging by a thread, which will snap if we don’t fight to preserve these cherished protections. It’s shocking and alarming that employees can be removed from public service, government jobs or any job for their personally held biblical views. So now in America we have to surrender our First Amendment rights and leave our faith at home or at the church? Now the views expressed in our writings have to conform to government policies? This persecution of Christians in America should concern anyone who values freedom of expression regardless of their views. We need to stand up to the Atlanta mayor and others like him who want to censor our religious expression from the public arena. This is government intimidation and control with the intent to silence any opposition to their viewpoint. We must support the free exercise of religion, the right to free speech, free association and the right to participate in commerce! Mayor Reed should reinstate Chief Cochran and compensate him for the month he was wrongly suspended. He should assure Americans that he will stop trampling on our freedom of speech and our biblical views. Stand with Chief Cochran and sign the Family Research Council petition at .

Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun T oday’s liberals are not racists, but they often behave that way. They would benefit immensely from considering some of the arguments in awardwinning scholar Dr. Shelby Steele’s forthcoming book, “Shame: How America’s Past Sins Have Polarized Our Country.” Steele, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, explains that in matters of race, there is an ideological vision that completely ignores truth — a vision he calls “poetic truth.” In literature, poetic license takes liberties with grammatical rules, as well as realities, in order to create a more beautiful or powerful effect than would be otherwise possible. Liberals have a poetic commitment to black victimization as the explanation for the many problems affecting a large segment of the black community. The truth that blacks have now achieved a level of freedom comparable to that of others has to be seen as a lie. People who accept the truth about that freedom are seen as aligning themselves with America’s terrible history of racism. Accepting that racism is still the greatest barrier to black achievement is the only way liberals can prove themselves innocent of racism. Thus, “modern liberalism is grounded in a paradox: it tries to be ‘progressive’ and forward looking by fixing its gaze backward. It insists that America’s shameful past is the best explanation of its current social problems. It looks at the present, but it sees only the past.” Liberals believe black people’s fate is determined by the beneficence of white people and government programs. Steele points out that despite the handicaps of past racism and segregation, our fate was left in our own hands. In the face of more government opposition than assistance, black Americans created the most articulate and effective movement for human freedom that the world has ever seen — the civil rights movement. This was done without any government grants and in a society that ran the gamut from a cool indifference toward blacks to murderous terrorism. Though not politically correct to acknowledge, there are cultural patterns within the black community that keep blacks from achieving true parity with whites. Sociologist Daniel Patrick Moynihan identified these patterns in his 1965 report, titled “The Negro Family: The Case for National Action.” Moynihan, who later became a Democratic senator, was condemned as a racist by much of America’s academic establishment for “blaming the victim.” Worse than that, Moynihan’s experience became an object lesson for other social scientists that any research that implies black responsibility for black problems is forbidden. Moynihan’s conclusions were no less than prophetic. Steele says family breakdown is the single worst problem black America faces. It spawned countless other problems in black America, including gang violence, drug abuse, low academic achievement, high dropout and unemployment rates, and high crime and incarceration rates. Liberalism is a moral manipulation that exaggerates inequity and unfairness in American life in order to justify overreaching public policies and programs. Liberalism undermines the spirit of self-help and individual responsibility. For liberals in academia, the fact that black college students earn lower grades and have a higher dropout rate than any group besides reservation Indians means that blacks remain stymied and victimized by white racism. Thus, their push for affirmative action and other race-based programs is to assuage their guilt and shame for America’s past by having people around with black skin color. The heck with the human being inside that skin. Shelby Steele argues that the civil rights movement’s goal was a free society — one not necessarily free of all bigotry but free of illegal discrimination. After that, we minorities should be simply left alone, as opposed to being smothered by the paternalism, inspired by white guilt, that has emerged since the 1960s. On that note, I just cannot resist the temptation to refer readers to my Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon (http://tinyurl. com/opd8vgd), which grants Americans of European ancestry amnesty and pardon for their own grievances and those of their forebears against my people so that they stop feeling guilty and stop acting like fools in their relationship with Americans of African ancestry. Walter Williams Syndicated columnist W e are saddened to note the passing of Dr. Hulon Crayton but find it a joy to write about a life well lived. Crayton described his work as a rheumatologist as a “calling.” Depending on your religious and regional background, the phrase may not connect, but it means, essentially, that Crayton believed a higher power meant for him to spend his days healing others. And it was clear, from his patients, that Crayton was a remarkable physician. And if that had been the sum of his life, that might have been enough, but Crayton also gave his time, energy and money to civic, health, arts and medical organizations. As The News Herald’s Valerie Garman reported, Crayton’s work will continue through the Crayton Foundation, an organization founded alongside his wife, Dinah, to provide college scholarships to minority students. Crayton came to Bay County from Racine, Wis., according to his website. “I just started driving south, stopping at hardware stores along the way, and when I came to a store that didn’t sell snow shovels, I knew I was home.” After finding his home, Crayton spent the rest of his life improving his community and the lives around him.

NATIO N & WORLD Thursday, February 19, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A7 Ukrainian railway hub falls to rebels ARTEMIVSK, Ukraine (AP) — Government soldiers pulled out of a ferociously contested railway hub in eastern Ukraine Wednesday, ending a siege so intense the retreating troops said they couldn’t get water or food amid relentless shelling by Russianbacked separatists. At least six soldiers were killed in the withdrawal and more than 100 wounded. President Petro Poroshenko sought to portray the fall of Debaltseve in a positive light, saying the pullback was carried out “in a planned and organized manner,” despite assertions by exhausted and dirt-caked soldiers, some of whom made their way out on foot, that their forces suffered heavy losses. No matter the circumstances, the retreat appeared to be an acceptance by the Ukrainian leader of a humiliating defeat in exchange for a chance at pushing a shaky truce agreement forward and securing the pullback of heavy weapons. The loss of Debaltseve was a serious setback for the army. The town is a strategic railroad junction that lies on the most direct route between the separatist east’s two major cities, Donetsk and Luhansk. By taking control of it, rebels gain significant transportation connections to boost their regions’ capacity to function as a unified entity. Its strategic importance kept the battle raging even after a cease-fire between Ukrainian forces and the Russia-backed rebels went into effect Sunday and appeared to be mostly holding elsewhere after fighting that has killed more than 5,600 people since April. Relinquishing the town could remove the major impediment to a lasting cease-fire and begin the next step that was agreed to in a peace deal last week — the pullback of heavy weapons by both sides to create a buffer zone at least 30 miles wide. But the images of traumatized soldiers and their stories of deprivation will be another wound to a national psyche already bruised by Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula last March and the vicious fighting in the east, where Ukrainian forces suffered heavy losses at the hands of rebels. Semyon Semenchenko, a battalion commander and a member of parliament, accused the military command of betraying the country’s interests in Debaltseve. “We had enough forces and means,” he said in a Facebook post. “The problem is the command and coordination. They are as bad as can be.” dining business local dining local dining local business local business raci ng business raci ng business scene local scene local comm muni raci ng muni raci ng comm muni comm local football local News in-depth reporting business food News food News in-depth reporting food in-depth reporting business food business local dining local dining local dining food high school food in-depth reporting food in-depth reporting high school in-depth reporting food in-depth reporting business food business high school business food business local business local business sports News sports News dining sports dining food sports food News food News sports News food News food high school food sports food high school food raci ng business raci ng business scene News scene News in-depth reporting scene in-depth reporting News in-depth reporting News scene News in-depth reporting News food scene food News food News scene News food News in-depth reporting food in-depth reporting scene in-depth reporting food in-depth reporting News in-depth reporting News food News in-depth reporting News scene News in-depth reporting News food News in-depth reporting News local scene local comm muni raci ng muni raci ng comm muni comm football News football News local football local puzzles dining puzzles dining local puzzles local dining local dining puzzles dining local dining sports puzzles sports dining sports dining puzzles dining sports dining football puzzles football local football local puzzles local football local No body deliv ers like we do. coupo ns business coupo ns business local coupo ns local business local business coupo ns business local business sports coupo ns sports we feed back value your Dear News Herald Reader , As your pr emier local media co mpany , our miss ion is to pr ovide you with not only a gr eat pr oduct but al s o wit h service that consiste ntly meets or exce eds your expectations.

(AP) — Kate Brown was sworn in Wednesday as Oregon’s governor following an influence-peddling scandal that prompted the resignation of fellow Democrat John Kit zhaber, who had been the state’s longest-serving chief executive before his swift fall from grace. Brown assumed Oregon’s highest office during a ceremony at the state Capitol. Brown, for merly the secretary of state, becomes the first openly bisex ual governor in the nation. In a speech to the Legislature after her swearing-in, Brown praised Kitzhaber for his contri butions but also said “we must restore the public’s trust.” “There is a great deal of work ahead of us, and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to it,” she said. Meanwhile, Kitzhaber, in one of his final acts as gover nor, commuted the prison sen tence of a young inmate who’s serving a 12-year sentence for attempted murder and other charges. The commutation docu ment, obtained by The Associ ated Press, doesn’t reveal why Kitzhaber decided to release Sang Dao more than three years early. However, last sum mer his fiancee, Cylvia Hayes, who’s at the center of the eth ics scandal that prompted Kit zhaber to step down, spoke at a correctional facility where the 25-year-old Dao received a college degree as part of a rehabilitation program. Hayes faces allegations that she used her relationship to enrich herself. Kitzhaber has denied wrongdoing and has consis tently maintained that he and Hayes worked hard to avoid conflicts between her public and private roles. Unlike most states, Oregon has no lieutenant governor. Under the state constitution, the secretary of state takes over if a governor steps down or dies. KATE BR O W N New governor of Oregon Jury deliberates death for murderer with bodies in yard WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — A jury began deliberat ing on Wednesday whether to send a man to death row for the 2002 strangulation deaths of a pharmacist and his girlfriend, whose bodies were found in his yard. The jury weighed the brutal nature of the crimes against a defense request to show mercy to Hugo Selenski, who was convicted last week on two counts of first-degree murder in the killings of Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett during a robbery at the pharmacist’s home. Prosecutors asked the jury for a death sentence, saying Selenski, 41, and a co-conspirator brutally beat Kerkowski to compel him to reveal the location of tens of thousands of dollars he kept in his house and then used plastic flex ties to strangle him and Fassett. The pharmacist had pleaded guilty to running an illegal prescription drug ring and was about to be sentenced when he and Fassett were reported missing in 2002. Authorities found their decomposing bodies about a year later, along with at least three other sets of human remains, on Selenski’s property near Wilkes-Barre. Prosecutors argued Kerkowski was tortured, one of the aggravating circumstances they urged jurors to consider in deciding Selenski’s fate.

Churches offer drive-by ashes; not everyone appears happy UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Too busy to stop in for an Ash Wednesday service? Some churches are offering drive-by ashes. Clergy at Advent Evan gelical Lutheran Church in Upper Arlington, Ohio, applied ash to the foreheads of anyone who stopped in the parking lot of the church for two hours Wednesday. It’s the first time the church offered the driveby service, said the Rev. Aaron Layne. The congre gation supported it, he said, although some comments on Facebook criticized him for cheapening the observance that marks the beginning of Lent for Christians. Layne reasoned that it could be a first step back for some people who haven’t been to church in years. Other churches also have taken more informal approaches to Ash Wednes day. The “Ashes to Go” movement began in 2007 with ashes given to some 100 passers-by outside a cof feehouse in Missouri, the Rev. Teresa K.M. Danieley of St. John’s Episcopal Church in St. Louis wrote on the “Ashes to Go” website. The practice since has spread, and the website lists quick ash distribu tion services in more than 30 states and in several countries. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Ashtabula, Ohio, offered ashes at a downtown park Wednesday, accord ing to The Star-Beacon in Ashtabula. Like Advent Evan gelical Lutheran Church, the service would be a first for the northeast Ohio church. Both churches also had traditional evening services with ash distribution.


NEW YO RK, NEW YO RK — If life isn’ t hard enough, no w you ha ve to wo rry about making it to the bathroom in time.

Tr ace y Seipel, a longtime clinician who is one of the wo rld’ s leading ex perts in natural urological health care. “The y don’ t ev en tell their spouse or fa milies about it. It af fects their li ve s in ev ery wa y, inuencing where the y go, and ev en what the y will wear in case the y ha ve an accident. ” “Black is the color of choice, ” says Dr . Seipel, “as it can hide ev idence of public accidents. ” A 100% natural, drug-free solution de ve loped by Dr . Seipel is no w av ailable in a remarkable, fa st-acting natural formula called Bladder Control. This sophisticated herbal compound has been sho wn in clinical studies to impro ve bladder control with reductions in bladder frequenc y, nocturia (ha ving to urinate at night), ur genc y, and bladder discomfort, sometimes in as little as tw o weeks. No More Run ning to the To ilet Since its introduction in Australia, more than 25,000 people ha ve su cc es sfully used the Bladder Control formula. Dr . Seipel’ s formula has made a belie ve r out of 45-year -old, mother of three, Brandy W. , from Brisbane, Australia. “I had a high bladder frequenc y as a child, ” says Brandy , “b ut my frequenc y really wo rsened after the birth of my rst child. ” A friend who wa s aw are of Brandy’ s condition told her about Dr . Seipel’ s formula. “A fter tw o weeks, I had already noticed changes, ” smiles Brandy . ** “I wa s nding that although I felt I needed to urinate, I wa sn’ t desperate to run to the toilet. No w, when I get up in the morning, ” she adds, “I’m able to mak e the cof fee and ev en ha ve a cup before needing to go, which is a great impro ve ment!” How Does It Wo rk? “Bladder Control helps aging bladders feel and function years younger by re vitalizing bladder tone and function, and by helping impro ve kidne y health, ” says Dr . Seipel. “Bladder Control promotes normal urinary frequenc y, an d reduces ur genc y, no cturia and those embarrassing, aw ay-from-home bladder accidents, ” adds Dr . Seipel. “The compound in vigorates the tone of the bladder wa ll, restoring a health y le ve l of rmness by enhancing the bladder’ s muscular elasticity . This reduces the frequent ur ge to urinate, ” ex plains Dr . Seipel. Positiv e Clinical Tr ials This natural, drug-free Bladder Control formula has performed well in clinical studies. In one early controlled, randomized trial, participants sa w results in as little as tw o weeks. But the best wa s yet to come. Tw o weeks later , participants shock ed study observ ers by reporting an astounding 88% impro ve ment in their quality of life. Thirty days later , ev ery study participant, 100% of them, reported that their quality of life had impro ve d mark edly . Results lik e these are not surprising to Dr . Seipel who single-handedly pioneered the bladder care cate gory in the early 2000’ s, recei ving an aw ard from the prestigious US Nutrition Business Jo urnal for her wo rk. Her patent-pending formula consisting of select, syner gistically paired botanicals lik e Cr ate va nurvala , Equisetum arvense and Linder a agg re gata , wa s 15 years in the making. Dr . Seipel searched for an ef fecti ve , alternati ve treatment to prescription drugs. “Those medications can cause memory loss and ha ve a distressing drying ef fect on the body , causing blurred vision, constipation, dry mouth, nausea, and other side ef fects, ” says Dr . Seipel. Adios to Adult Dia pers “Ov eracti ve bl ad der syndrome and/or urinary incontinence are widespread problems, ” says Dr . Seipel. Man y of these indi viduals wear adult diapers.

Glenda wo re adult diapers ev ery day to guard ag ainst accidents. “My bladder capacity wa s good bu t the leakage and accidents wo uld occur a fe w times a day without wa rning. So, I wo re them ev ery day ,” confesses Glenda. Since Glenda disco ve red Dr .

Hard to Te ll Man y men confuse the sym ptoms of ove racti ve bl ad de r sy nd ro me wit h prostate wo es. Dr . Seipel ex plains, “Prostate enlar gement restricts urine o w. The bladder compensates for this by trying harder and harder to push the urine out. ” “This causes structural changes to the bladder ,” adds Dr . Seipel, “Causing bladder wa lls to thick en and lose elasticity .” As bladder pressure increases, so does instances of urinary frequenc y and ur genc y.

Page A8 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 19, 2015 FROM THE FRONT Video from the prison shows Tatum being slammed face-first to the concrete floor by Finch and Riley while Tatum’s hands were restrained behind his back and his ankles restrained. The three other officers then jumped on Tatum and pinned him to the ground, according to arrest records. Each subordinate officer told investigators the attack was designed by their supervisor. Kirkland told them he wanted Tatum taken to the ground during an escort, and that he would prompt the attack by yelling that Tatum spit on him, according to investigation reports. But the five subordinate officers told investigators none of Tatum’s actions justified the use of force. In the federal indictment, prosecutors charged the officers with physically assaulting Tatum without justification and causing him bodily injury. To cover up the officers’ actions, the indictment further alleges, Finch was the sole officer to falsify reports of the incident by stating the assault was in response to the inmate spitting on Kirkland. The case is being investigated by the FBI and the Florida Department of CorrectionsOffice of the Inspector General. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Gayle E. Littleton. The officers’ arraignment is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Feb. 26 before Magistrate Judge Larry A. Bodiford in Panama City. GRAHAM from Page A1 Veterans Affairs. Her bill would add 45 more coordinators to the program. She said funding for the positions would come from cutting waste in military spending. Graham said since 9/11, almost 3 million new veterans have been added to the country. The legislation, co-sponsored by Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., has been endorsed by the Wounded Warrior Project. The program assists the most seriously injured and ill veterans in their transition from active duty to veteran status. That transition can be especially difficult for injured veterans, Graham said. VA recovery coordinators help veterans cut through bureaucratic red tape. “This individual helps that veteran with a whole host of issues as they return home,” she said. “It is health care. It is education. It is training. It is housing. Whatever that man or woman needs in terms of assistance, their recovery coordinator is there to help.” The bill calls for requiring the VA to work with an existing nursing school to create a curriculum to train veteran recovery coordinators. It also requires the secretaries of Defense and Veterans Affairs to better coordinate the recovery program. Under the legislation, the VA would work with colleges that have existing nursing programs, such as GCSC and Chipola College, to create a curriculum specifically designed to train recovery coordinators. Linda Cope, the founder and president of Warrior Beach Retreat in Panama City Beach, praised the bill. “We’ll have more people reaching out to (veterans) to give them the help that they need, and so many of them need somebody to help walk them through the process,” she said. Gulf County Veterans’ Service Officer Joe Paul also praised the bill, saying the veterans’ recovery program is a key VA program. “We’ve got to take a stand to make the veterans number one, employable; number two, be able to live with their disability,” he said. “This looks like it will address that by increasing the number of recovery coordinators.” Desert Storm veteran Matt Duncan said he would be pleased with expansion of the program. “I have too many friends who have waited too long to see the right people, with post-traumatic stress disorder or physical problems,” he said. GCSC President John Holdnak said the program could create opportunities for students. “This is a great opportunity for us to help give back,” he said. “Nothing would please me more than for the first person that most veterans deal with when they come back home — the first person they talk to to help them out — is one of our community college graduates.” CARRYING GUNS from Page A1 Norman’s attorneys last year filed a lengthy brief arguing the ban on openly carrying weapons violated the federal and state constitutions and was overly broad. The brief said Norman, then 24, was arrested Feb. 19, 2012, after a concerned citizen spotted him with a gun on his hip and called police. Norman had been issued a concealed-weapons permit days before. In its ruling, the appeals court emphasized the role of the Florida Constitution, which it said, “unlike the U.S. Constitution, explicitly states that the manner in which guns are borne can be regulated.” NIP, TUCK VACATION from Page A1 Esther Lee of Birmingham has received multiple procedures from Daube. When she received laser resurfacing, she described the pain in subsequent days as comparable to sticking her face in the stream of a billowing flamethrower. Daube advises all of his patients to stay out of the sun, as a general rule. “I was totally taken by shock,” Lee said of her treatment. But that does not mean a patient’s family cannot take in the attractions in Bay County as the patient is recovering. Lee believes one of the top reasons for medical tourism is cost. Procedures are cheaper in Panama City than in Birmingham, cheaper in Birmingham than Atlanta and cheaper in Atlanta than New York. Daube said extensive work can cost between $20,000 and $30,000. “That’s less than remodeling a house,” he said. Daube said he believes medical tourists come to Florida because of strong facilities and talented doctors and surgeons. That’s the main reason Lee has had her surgeries in Panama City. She worked with cosmetic surgeons for 26 years, including Daube, and she did not hesitate to say Daube was the best she had seen. “I have total confidence in him,” she said. “I’ve sent people, my family and friends in my circle.” Other medical practices have not invested as heavily in medical tourism. Angie Tatum with Phillip T. Nunnery plastic surgery said their office markets in Alabama and Georgia, but not any farther than that. Bay Medical Center Sacred Hearth Health System public information officer Tammy Newton said none of the hospital’s cosmetic and plastic surgeons on staff market to a national audience. Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center Public Information Officer Mike Ralston said he is not aware of any other doctors at his hospital who participate in medical tourism. A bill (SB 86) filed by Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, would require Enterprise Florida to collaborate with the Department of Tourism and Marketing to include in its four-year plan a discussion of the promotion of medical tourism and to require a specific amount of money to be appropriated to the Florida Tourism Industry Marketing Corporation for a medical tourism marketing plan.

Members of the House Business & Professions Subcommittee voted 9-4 to advance the measure (HB 107), which would remove an 80-year-old state law that requires liquor stores to be stand-alone facilities. The bill has drawn opposition from independent liquor stores, some county sheriffs and Lakelandbased Publix. Meanwhile, support for the measure has come from retailers including WalMart and Target. Publix lobbyist Teye Reeves said the company’s business model has been to separate its liquor stores from the main grocery operations. “At the end of the day, Wal-Mart has a very specific business model and Publix does not have the same business model, and we’re concerned that it will put us at a competitive disadvantage,” Reeves said. But retailers that support the change say their customers are looking for increased convenience. “A change to Florida’s outdated separation law would remove impediments, expand consumer choice and level the playing field for all grocery retailers across the state, all while ensuring safeguards and security remain in place,” Wal-Mart spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg wrote in an email after the meeting. Target lobbyist Jason Unger told the committee the company also is looking at its business model, which includes smaller “express” Bill would allow groceries to sell the hard stuff Publix, Wal-Mart at odds over liquor REP.

For the seventh year, the Panama City Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) hosted its Sports and Events Workshop at the Frank Brown Park gym. It brought together about 30 event-rights holders from across the country, who are responsible for hosting hundreds of sporting and special events in Panama City Beach every year. “There’s $50 million worth of economic impact under this roof today,” said Richard Sanders, vice president of sports and special events for the CVB. “Sports is in a good place. Ever since we started the program ... we have continued to increase participation 10 to 15 percent.” As the number of sports tournaments and special events in Panama City Beach continues to grow — about 150 are lined up this year — the CVB, which takes direction from the Bay County Tourist Development Council, is focused on developing additional venues to host those events. “Our long-term vision is more rectangular fields, more baseball and softball fields, and even as far as a 100,000-squarefoot-plus indoor special events center,” Sanders said.

Devonteal Bernard McFann, 21, appeared in court Wednesday on charges of robbery with a firearm punishable by life, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm while committing a felony. McFann was arrested in November in connection with a string of robberies dating back to 2010, according to Parker Police Department reports. Police specifically highlighted a 2011 armed robbery of the Smile Line Store at 5633 E. U.S. 98. Police released video from the store at the time McFann initially was arrested. One of the store’s videos from June 2011 shows two masked men — one wearing a werewolf mask and another with a shirt wrapped around his head — robbing the store at gunpoint. Parker police reported the men took $741 from the clerk. Although both men’s faces were concealed, police said several witnesses came forward to name McFann as the man who brandished a .357 Magnum revolver at the clerk, according to police reports. Investigators also said the firearm allegedly used in the robberies was recovered. Although McFann no longer is a juvenile as he was at the time of the alleged robbery, authorities filed documents last week to move the charges to adult court. McFann now faces charges of robbery with a firearm punishable by life, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm while committing a felony. According to court documents, McFann decided to represent himself and requested to be released on the pretrial release program. A ruling on his motion has not been made.

In a report delivered to Gov. Rick Scott, Stewart recommended the state get rid of a language-arts test students take in 11th grade. An exam in the 10th grade is used to determine whether students have met the state’s graduation requirement in language arts, and many educators say the later test is unnecessary. Stewart recommended Scott issue an executive order to suspend the test in the current school year, with lawmakers later approving legislation to permanently scrap the assessment. Scott said Wednesday he would do so. The report also recommended making optional a college readiness test that some students are required to take and eliminating final exams in courses that have state-mandated tests at the end of the year. Stewart also urged local school districts to do what they can to lower the amount of time students spend on tests. “I am recommending that we eliminate as much testing as we can,” Stewart told reporters after brief remarks before the Senate Education Pre-K-12 Committee. Scott has pushed for reining in the number of tests and asked Stewart for the review. “It’s important to measure students’ progress and achievements, but we must not lose sight of our goal to provide every student with the very best education,” Scott said in a statement accompanying the report. “As I have traveled the state, I have heard from parents and teachers that there are too many tests, and I agree.” Stewart’s report also called for local districts not to “test students for the sole purpose of evaluating teachers” —just four years after the Legislature passed a controversial law more closely tying teacher pay to student performance on standardized tests. “Students already take tests to determine whether they know their subject matter and districts should use information from these tests to help gauge teacher performance,” the report says. But Senate Education Pre-K-12 Chairman John Legg, R-Lutz, would Education commissioner calls for reining in tests SEE TESTS | B2

The proposal, sponsored by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, also would make other changes in Florida’s alcohol laws. For example, it would allow beer tasting rooms at craft breweries and end the state’s prohibi tion on brewers being able to fill 64-ounce “growlers” for off-site consumption as they can with other size containers. But most of Wednesday’s discussion focused on ending the regulation that requires stand-alone liquor stores. Opponents claim the measure could put small inde pendent liquor stores out of business and would make alcohol more accessible to minors. “When a minor walks into a liquor store, they stand out like a sore thumb,” said Charles Bailes, chief execu tive officer of ABC Fine Wine & Spirits. “The barrier is necessary to keep alcohol out of the hands of teens, not because they purchase it but because they steal it.” Steube said the measure is an effort to reduce regula tions, and he disagreed with the contentions that elimi nating the barrier would harm small businesses or make it easier for minors to get their hands on liquor. “If you look at the facts and the data and the research, guess where kids get their alcohol from? Friends and families,” Steube said. While voting for the overall bill, Rep. Heather Fitzen hagen, R-Fort Myers, said lawmakers need to balance free-market principles with public safety. “This is not the Berlin Wall; this wall does not need to come down,” Fitzenhagen said. “It’s much safer for our kids to have a separate entrance when they are contemplating risky behavior. And as the mother of two teenagers, I know they do.” Steube’s measure still must go through the Govern ment Operations Appropriations Subcommittee and the Regulatory Affairs Committee before it can reach the House floor. The annual legislative session starts March 3. LIQUOR from Page B1 Panama City Beach “sports village,” a three-phase project that also was sub mitted to the Bay County RESTORE Act Advisory Committee in the hopes of garnering a portion of the $6.3 mil lion available for environmental and economic restoration projects. The projects represent three of 22 still in the running to receive funding from the county, a decision that will be made later this year. “The ball is rolling on this stuff now,” Sanders said of the project, which pri oritizes the development of eight rect angular athletic fields to host sporting events such as soccer and lacrosse. “We’re in the process of making some of this become reality.” Sanders said the additional fields could bolster visitation during the spring, fall and winter, when many of those sports are in season. “Over 50 percent of our economic impact is during the prime time of the year,” he said. “I really feel like what we do with fast-pitch softball and base ball we could do with soccer.” The destination’s biggest tourna ment sport, girl’s fast-pitch softball, brings in more than 500 teams per year, accounting for about 30,000 room nights. John Cain, owner and founder of the United States Fastpitch Associa tion (USFA), said those numbers could be bigger with additional fields in the area. Additional fields also would help keep more teams on the beach. Cur rently, Cain said USFA holds tourna ment games at a few over-the-bridge locations to fill the void. “We could bring twice as many teams in if we had more fields,” Cain said. “With another four fields, we could do 40,000” room nights. Despite the limitations, Cain said USFA plans to keep coming back to Panama City Beach. “It’s the location,” Cain said. “Just like buying real estate, the first three things are location, location, location.” WORKSHOP from Page B1ANDREW WA RDLOW | The News Herald People attend a sports workshop Wednesday at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach. not commit Wednesday to getting rid of the 11th-grade test in language arts. “It’s one of the items on the table,” Legg said. “We are reviewing that. ... It’s one of those options that we are seriously looking at.” People who addressed the committee Wednesday largely agreed with Stew art’s recommendation on the 11th-grade test, even as they pressed for more steps to cut back on exams. “But trust me, there are opportunities to look at the portfolio of assess ments in the state of Flor ida and identify other areas and examples of duplica tion that has put us in this position of over-testing,” said Miami-Dade County Superintendent Alberto Carvalho. Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, questioned why stu dents who do well on tests in upper-level courses then have to sit for state exams that are expected to be less rigorous. “These students who have already taken and passed Advanced Place ment and International Baccalaureate tests are bored out of their gourds when we then ask them to take another test on the same material,” said Gaetz, a former Okaloosa County schools superintendent. Education groups largely agree that the state should hold off on assigning school grades and making deci sions about whether stu dents should be promoted from the third grade or allowed to graduate based on new tests the state is introducing this year. Lawmakers already have ensured that schools won’t face consequences from this year’s results under the state account ability system. But sup porters of pushing back some of the other ways the results are used say that’s not enough. “The letter grades are so important in terms of perception of a school,” Sen. Bill Montford, a Tal lahassee Democrat who doubles as chief executive officer of the Florida Asso ciation of District School Superintendents, said after the meeting.

The Senate Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcom mittee unanimously approved the measure (SB 320) by Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, with amendments aimed at boosting adoptions still further. The bill would provide a one-time cash payment of $5,000 per child to state employees who adopt children from the foster-care system and $10,000 per child for those who adopt children who also have special needs. After the amendments, the bill includes what Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, called the “Why Wait Amendment,” making eligibility retroactive to Jan. 1. “So if someone’s on the fence about adopting a child, why wait? Do it now,” said Bean, who proposed the amend ment. “We’re going to unite some more families.” Gaetz also proposed an amend ment that would bar the Department of Children and Families and the priva tized community-based care agencies from “showing prejudice if a fostercare parent wishes to home-school a child placed within their home by the child-welfare system.” “There was literally a rule that the department had that said that if you were a home-schooling family, you couldn’t be a foster-care family and in the pipeline for adoption,” Gaetz said. “When we pushed on the department, they said they had no evidence to sup port that rule, and they were going to repeal or change the rule. We want to make sure it’s changed in statute as well.” “What kind of accountability do we have when it comes to home-school ing, checking on the children?” asked Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale. Gaetz, a former school superinten dent, said school districts have a pro cess for making sure an approved plan for home-schooling a child is being carried out. He also pointed to last year’s budget allocation for almost 200 more child-protective investigators in the state child-welfare system. “We have the eyes and we have the ears,” Gaetz said. “No one has any evi dence whatsoever that there has been any problem associated with homeschooling children in the foster care system or in adoptive families.” That amendment passed as well. A third change would require a follow-up visit by child-welfare officials one year after an adoption is final ized. As written, it would charge the Department of Children and Families or the community-based care agen cies with conducting the visits. But Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Holly wood, said the bill ought to clarify which agency is accountable. “That’s something that could easily slip through the cracks,” Sobel said. “I think we need to decide” whether it’s the department or the communitybased care agencies. “My preference is, since the (community-based care agencies) are getting extra money to do this, they should be doing the follow-up.” Gaetz agreed, promising to further amend the bill to that effect. He also noted that families who adopt children often face challenges as a result. “Sadly, we have some circum stances where some children are actually brought back,” he said. “What we’re trying to do here is to have a contact point to say somebody has to stay in touch with these families — not to intrude on their lives, but to offer any kind of support or help that they might need.” The bill, at least in part, would recreate a popular adoption program that began in 2000 but was repealed in 2010 because of declining state rev enues during the recession. Senators look for more ways to boost adoption ““So if someone’s on the fence about adopting a child, why wait? Do it now.”SEN.

O.C. Pride III is charged with six counts of felony child neglect without great bodily harm after the house on Oak Street caught fire about 3:15 a.m. with the children inside. The children, between the ages of 1 and 8, escaped when the 8-year-old woke up, smelled smoke and rousted the other chil dren, according to Pride’s arrest report. After returning home, the parents of the children “either would not or could not provide any information” about who was supposed to be taking care of the children, the report said. Pride, who was the primary resident of the home near the intersec tion of Beal Parkway and Mary Esther Cut-Off, even tually admitted that he had been taking care of the chil dren. He said he had left them alone to pick up his girlfriend at Club Mansion on Perry Avenue in Fort Walton Beach, according to the report. It is not clear whether Pride is the father of any of the children. Akivia Coward, who now is 9 years old, and her 7-year-old brother Aaron later were honored with Citizens Life Saving Awards from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and a Citizens Medal of Honor from Ocean City-Wright Fire Control District for saving the other children. They each grabbed two of the younger children and fled the burning house. After the ceremony Dec. 10, Aaron said he still struggles with fear after the blaze. “Sometimes, I stay up all night because I’m afraid our house will catch fire,” he said. A jury trial for Pride is scheduled for March 23. Six children had been left home alone when a fire broke out O.C. PRIDE III By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian CRESTVIEW — An asphalt mix first used at Bob Sikes Airport is now not only a national standard, military run way authorities also might soon specify it. Crestview mix — officially known as Federal Aviation Administration specifi cation P601 — is stronger than standard asphalt and is substantially impervious to deterioration by leaking jet fuel. Following the FAA’s July 2014 addi tion of the mix to its list of design speci fications, the Air Force, Navy and Army are following suit. “The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have recently put it on their agenda for consideration as a new military specification,” said AVCON Engineers and Planners regional manager Lee Lewis. The mix, laid at Bob Sikes Airport in October 2011, took some jump ing through bureaucratic hoops for approval, Lewis said. While it impressed officials at the now-defunct Florida Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development and the Department of Transportation, nei ther agency was willing to approve its use. But when AVCON consultant and nationally recognized airports paving expert Bob Boyer declared the new specification exceeded county and state project specs, approval was swift. “The DOT said it would make a great demonstration project for the Aviation Office,” Lewis said. “Dr. Boyer stood up, put his hands on the table and said, ‘Gentlemen, this is not a demonstration; this is the future of airport paving.’” Three components make up asphalt: asphalt binder, the black gooey stuff; air; and aggregate, “the rocks.” Crestview mix — known as CM in the industry — adds a polymer that created stronger asphalt less prone to breaking down in hot weather or when doused with jet fuel. “The more polymer you add, the bet ter the asphalt performs, but the more you add, the harder it is to compact it, to roll it out,” Lewis said. Boyer solved that problem. “He reduced size of aggregate and reduced air voids in the mix,” Lewis said. After CM proved its mettle at Bob Sikes Airport, it was soon laid at airports in Panama City and West Jacksonville, Lewis said. Authorities at the Miami and Lex ington, Kentucky, international airports have contacted AVCON to discuss using Crestview mix on their respective runways. The Alabama Department of Trans portation is not only interested in using CM at its airports, but on highways as well, Lewis said. On Tuesday, Lewis flew to Denver to present the new specifications at the American Association of Airports Executives’ Airport Planning, Design and Construction Symposium. “It was an inevitable development,” Lewis said. “It was coming, but we just happened to be in the right place at the right time.” AVCON | Special to the News Bulletin An AVCON Engineers and Planners construction crew lays the new Crestview mix asphalt for the first time at Crestview Bob Sikes Airport. The mix is now a national industry standard. Crestview-developed asphalt mix becomes airport standard

Gi ve yo ur se lf a FI GH TI NG chanc e CHICAGO (AP) — Former Flor ida Gov. Jeb Bush said Wednesday “there were mistakes made in Iraq” during his brother’s administration, offering the critique during a wideranging speech on foreign policy that comes as part of his run-up to a likely presidential campaign. Speaking to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Bush said during a question-and-answer session after his speech that intelligence about Saddam Hussein’s possession of weapons of mass destruction was not accurate, and the U.S. initially failed to create an environment of security in the country after remov ing the Iraqi leader from power. But Bush praised former Presi dent George W. Bush’s decision to “surge” troops into Iraq in 2007, which added about 20,000 troops to the American forces in the country in an effort to improve security. He called it “one of the most historic acts of courage politically” of any president. The surge was “hugely success ful,” Bush said, and it created a “a fragile but more stable situation” in Iraq that President Barack Obama could have built on during his term in office. Bush offered harsh words for Obama’s foreign policy during the speech, calling his administration “inconsistent and indecisive” and one that has led the U.S. to lose “the trust and the confidence of our friends.” “The great irony of the Obama presidency is this: Someone who came to office promising greater engagement with the world has left America less influential in the world,” Bush said. Bush acknowledged during the speech that his views about Ameri ca’s place in the world often will be compared with those of his brother and father, former President George H.W. Bush, adding he is “lucky” to have had family members who have “shaped America’s foreign policy from the Oval Office.” “But I am my own man — and my views are shaped by my own thinking and own experiences,” he said. “Each president learns from those who came before — their principles, their adjustments.” The older Bush brother finished his second term in 2009 amid an unpopular war in Iraq, an economy in freefall and with a majority of Americans disapproving of his job performance. Among donors, Jeb Bush has noted a strong family and religious bond with his older brother, but also has said they are not clones and have differences common among siblings. Ahead of the speech, Bush aides also released what they called a preliminary group of experts who will provide him with foreign pol icy advice. They included familiar names, such as James Baker III and George Shultz, both secretar ies of State under President Ronald Reagan; former Homeland Security secretaries Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, and former Deputy Secre tary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz., all three of whom served under George W. Bush. The list also included some lesser-known names, such as Meghan O’Sullivan, a former national security adviser to George W. Bush, who now teaches at Har vard and is seen as key to Jeb Bush’s idea of lessening U.S. depen dence on Middle East energy. Bush aides also confirmed late Tuesday that former Minnesota Rep. Vin Weber, a senior policy aide to 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, was advising Bush. Jeb Bush: Mistakes made in Iraq on his brother’s watch TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A Florida man who admitted he produced and sold potentially deadly toxins and aided a Lon don woman who was plotting to kill her mother was sen tenced Wednesday to more than nine years in prison. Jesse William Korff was sentenced in federal court in New Jersey after pleading guilty last year to producing and smuggling the toxins ricin and abrin and to conspiring to kill a person in a foreign country. The U.S. attorney’s office said Korff, 20, of LaBelle, used an underground Inter net marketplace called Black Market Reloaded to sell the toxins to buyers in India and Europe. One of the shipments allegedly went to the London woman who said she wanted to kill her mother. Korff was arrested in Jan uary 2014 after he set up a transaction with undercover agents at a rest stop outside Fort Myers. According to an affidavit filed in the case, in one email exchange, Korff told the agent: “I guarantee it will work ... if you drop the abrin in someone’s drink Wednesday he will be dead Friday and there is no way to trace it after 24 hours of ingestion.” Korff told the agent in an online conversation that he concealed the toxins in vials in carved-out and re-melted candles. Abrin is found in the seeds of the tropical rosary pea plant and is similar to ricin, a poison that comes from castor beans. Abrin is used in medi cal research because of its potential to kill cancer cells, but it also is a deadly poison for which there is no antidote, according to the website of the Centers for Disease Con trol and Prevention.

HOSPIT ALIT Y SPONSOR MEDIA SPONSORS LOCA L & STATE Page B6 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 19, 2015 FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — Florida has eclipsed California to become the state with the highest number of consum ers buying health coverage through new insurance markets under the Affordable Care Act, according to federal statistics released Wednesday. Florida’s approximately 1.6 million enrollees include both first-time enrollees and some of the almost 1 million Florid ians who enrolled last year. California led the country last year with 1.2 million con sumers, but lagged behind this year with a total of 1.4 million — 300,000 fewer than the state’s goal. The state has struggled to target hard-to reach populations including Latinos. Florida’s enrollment win comes despite significant Republican opposition in the state and a much smaller population than California, which has embraced the law, spent millions on outreach efforts, and established its own state exchange. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 3.8 million of Florida’s 19.5 million res idents were without health insurance, making it the third-highest in the nation at 19.5 percent. By comparison, 6.5 million of California’s almost 38 million residents were without health insurance, about 17 percent. Florida’s high numbers show the pent-up demand for insurance. Florida’s 20 percent of uninsured residents ranks it behind only Texas and Nevada. Texas had a rate of 22.1 percent and Nevada’s was 20.7 percent. California came in ninth, according to figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau last fall. Still no Medicaid expansion Florida’s Republican lawmakers have strongly opposed Medicaid expansion, which would provide coverage to an esti mated 1 million additional low-income Floridians. In contrast, an additional 3 million Californians gained coverage due to Medicaid expansion. Last month, Indiana became the 28th state to agree to expand Medicaid, and the latest state with a Republican governor to do so. At least 9.7 million people have gained coverage through the law’s Medic aid expansion, which targets low-income adults with no children living at home. Florida hospitals, health advocates and a growing part of the business com munity have made numerous efforts to pressure key Republicans to expand the program during the legislative session which begins next month, but it again seems like a non-starter. House Speaker Steve Crisafulli says there are no plans to consider Medicaid expansion during the upcoming session. And it is unlikely sup porters will get help from Gov. Rick Scott, who entered politics running ads against the health law. He said it’s not one of his priorities, but won’t stand in the way if the Legislature makes a move. National pattern Florida overtaking California fits into a broader national pattern. In 2015, the enrollment growth was driven by the fed eral, according to the mar ket research firm Avalere Health. Enrollment increased by 58 percent in the 37 states served by the federal mar ket, compared to a 9 percent increase among state-operated exchanges such as California’s. “It’s not surprising that some states are catching up,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access Cali fornia, a consumer coalition. “We had a good first year, but other states are catch ing up.” Nationally, about 11.4 million signed up before the second enrollment period, which ended Sunday. They did so with relative ease compared to the first year’s rollout, which was plagued by techno logical difficulties. The total number puts the Obama administration ahead of its nationwide target of 9.1 million people enrolled and paying premiums in 2015. But some experts say it still is too modest. Nonpartisan congressional analysts have estimated 12 million people will sign up in the new insurance markets. “We often say that this is really a five-year implementation. It takes time to implement something that is compli cated and has a lot of moving pieces,” said Kevin Counihan, chief executive officer of The nonpartisan Congressional Bud get Office estimates that this year there will be 19 million fewer uninsured Ameri cans than if the law had never passed. Florida ranks highest in health care enrollment The Associated Press LANTANA Vanilla Ice charged with burglary Vanilla Ice has been charged with breaking into and stealing from an abandoned home that is in foreclosure. Police in the Palm Beach County town of Lantana say the recording artist and home-improvement-show host had been renovating a home next to the victim’s house. They said in a news release that some of the items were found at his property. Vanilla Ice, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, rose to fame following the 1990 release of the hit song “Ice Ice Baby.” In recent years, he has hosted “The Vanilla Ice Project” on DIY Network. The 47-year-old Van Winkle was charged Wednesday with burglary of residence and grand theft and taken into custody. FORT LAUDERDALE Woman pleads guilty in wrong-way fatality A South Florida woman pleaded guilty to two counts of DUI manslaughter in a wrong-way crash on the Sawgrass Expressway that killed two 21-year-old friends. Kayla Mendoza apologized Wednesday to the families of the two victims, saying she’s heartbroken that she’s broken their hearts. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Mendoza will be sentenced April 24. Authorities said Mendoza was 20 years old and driving without a valid driver’s license when she ran head-on into another car. Marisa Catronio died at the scene of the November 2013 crash. Kaitlyn Ferrante died four days later. Mendoza told the families she’s sorry she caused “all of this over a stupid mistake.” Before the crash, Mendoza allegedly tweeted out “2 drunk 2 care” and made references to marijuana and bongs. WEST PALM BEACH Man accused of biting deputy An HIV-infected man is accused of biting a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy. The Palm Beach Post reported 25-year-old Jeffrey Switzer began arguing with the staff at the Coach House Restaurant and Bar in Wellington early Monday. When deputies ordered him to leave, Switzer became violent. An arrest report said deputies used a stun gun but weren’t able to bring Switzer under control. He became engaged in a “violent struggle” with them, spitting at the deputies before biting one of them. The injured deputy required five stitches to close the wound on his right forearm. The deputy, who wasn’t identified in the arrest report, said Switzer “spit out” a large chunk of skin during the attack. BOCA RATON Man accused of harassing coeds A 21-year-old man is accused of harassing coeds inside a Lynn University dormitory. Boca Raton police said Joseph Rutkowski was arrested last week on charges of burglary with assault and battery. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Rutkowski followed three women to their dorm on Thursday and went inside as they used their ID cards to enter. Police said he followed them to their room. When the women slammed the door, he went to a different room. A woman inside thought he was a friend of her roommate. When Rutkowski tried to kiss her, she screamed and ran. He then went to another room and hugged another student. Someone called 911 and he was arrested. He remained in jail Wednesday with no bond. DAYTONA BEACH Cop accused of groping suspect A Daytona Beach police officer is accused of groping a handcuffed woman. Police Chief Mike Chitwood said 22-year-old Larry Jones was arrested Tuesday and is on administrative leave without pay pending an internal affairs investigation. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Jones was hired in March and still is in his probationary period. He is charged with misdemeanor battery and two felonies — false imprisonment and public servant falsifying an official record. Chitwood said he is “disappointed and disgusted” over the incident. The arrest warrant states that Jones touched the woman in a sexual manner against her will after her Feb. 10 arrest. She was arrested after calling to confess to an earlier hit-and-run.

And in beginning, it seems like it’s heading there. But soon, thanks to the genuine heart in its (true) story and a pitch-perfect, beautifully lived-in performance by Kevin Costner, it likely will win you over. So go ahead, surrender. Cry a little. This is one feel-good movie that won’t make you feel bad about feeling good. The story begins in August 1987 in Boise, Idaho, when a high school football coach named Jim White — that name will end up being very convenient to the story — gets fired from his job after throwing a shoe in the direction of a snotty kid who’s talking back to him, accidentally bloodying him. Jim, who has a history of anger issues, packs up the family and moves to McFarland, Calif., for a job at the only school that will hire him. Arriving in McFarland, a farming town where the population is predominantly Mexican-American, White’s daughter looks nervously out the car window and asks: “Are we in Mexico?” At a taqueria, White tries to order a burger, but can’t get one. When the family encounters a group of young men cruising in their cars, he immediately thinks they’re dangerous. These moments lay it on a little thick, but soon, director Niki Caro (“Whale Rider”) hits a more comfortable stride depicting a prickly entry for the White family (the always lovely Maria Bello plays the sadly underdeveloped character of Jim’s wife) into McFarland life. At the new school, White is made assistant coach of the football team, working for an ornery boss who can’t win a game and sees nothing of sending a kid with a concussion back onto the field. Soon they argue, and White’s off the team. But he has a different idea. These boys, who spend all their non-school hours picking in the fields for their parents, might not be able to play football, but they sure can run. And run, and run. White — the kids call him “Blanco” — figures they could make a great cross-country team. And he goes for it — not that it’s smooth. “Nobody wins around here, White,” he’s told. The principal is skeptical. The best runner in the bunch, Thomas (a truly excellent Carlos Pratts), is a troubled teen who’s reluctant, at best. Families are resistant. Obstacles keep appearing. But White persists. If you don’t know what ends up happening, after some early disappointments, you haven’t seen too many sports underdog movies. The added layer in this film is the huge learning curve that White and his family face in McFarland. To get the support of the local families to keep their sons on the team, he must eat with them, reason with them, bond with them. He even goes picking in the fields with them one day, almost breaking his back, to the amusement of his athletes. As we mentioned, all of this could easily have veered into obvious formula, where you shed a few tears at climactic moments and then feel a bit silly for it. But the authentic feel we get from so many of the actors — a number are from McFarland, and had never acted professionally — helps keep the movie grounded, and so does Costner. At 60 (but looking a lot younger), the actor is so comfortable in this sort of role, he could probably do it in his sleep, but he lends a lovely low-key yet totally committed presence to the film. It’s hard to imagine anyone else doing the role better. The most satisfying moment in the film is at the end, when we learn what happened to White and his team in later years. This may be where you’ll need the Kleenex. Again, don’t feel bad about it. It’s a nice story, and nicely told. Costner pitch-perfect in moving ‘McFarland’ AP | Disney Kevin Costner, left, and Carlos Pratts appear in a scene from “McFarland, USA.” “McFarland, USA,” a Walt Disney Studios release, is rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America “for thematic material, some violence and language.” Running time: 128 minutes.

Gulf Coast appears to have the lone formula to beat one of the nation’s most talented teams. The Commodores earned a huge league victory Wednes day night, notching their second straight win over the Raiders, 81-77, at Billy Harrison Field House. With the win, Gulf Coast (19-9 overall, 6-5 in the Panhandle Con ference) can clinch a berth in the state tournament in Ocala with a road victory Saturday night against Pensacola State.

By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann PANAMA CITY — For a team that is attempting to recover from injury and ill ness, Wednesday afternoon offered Gulf Coast just about everything except comfortable weather. The Lady Commodores encountered win less L.B. Wallace for their home-opening soft ball doubleheader at Joe Tom King Field, and while the 8-2 and 6-2 triumphs were far from walkovers, they helped ease some growing pains this early season. Gulf Coast reached .500 for the second time this season at 10-10, and has won seven of its last 10 after a 3-7 start. It also welcomed back starting shortstop Amber Dozier from mononucleosis, got a pair of complete-game performances in the pitch ing circle and accomplished all of the above without having to get on a bus. Katie Beth Gordon scattered seven hits to improve to 5-5 with the Game 1 victory. Fresh man Alison Mitts followed with a 12-strikeout performance in the second game, also reach ing 5-5. The Lady Commodores made only one error in each game and showed they were adept at both small ball and letting their bigger bats in their lineup speak accordingly. Of the latter, Bozeman graduate Kinsley Faulkenberry hit the ball hard in all seven trips to the plate and registered four hits and four runs batted in. One of the three times she was retired came on a bases-loaded fly ball that Wallace left fielder Chena Segree pulled back in the park in the nightcap, robbing her of a grand-slam home run. Freshman Keala (Kay-ala) Cordeiro of Hun tington, Calif., came in boasting a .508 batting average and didn’t disappoint. Cordeiro was 4 for 7, all of her hits doubles while scoring twice and adding an RBI. They had plenty of help from their team mates as Gulf Coast accumulated 20 hits in 12 innings and never trailed on the day after scoring two runs in the bottom of the first inning of both games. Every starter supplied a hit, run or RBI in the first game, with the exception of speedy leadoff batter Kayla Fields who contributed two sacrifice bunts. The Lady Commodores opened a 4-0 lead in the second inning against losing pitcher Gulf Coast reached .500 for the second time this season at 10-10, and has won seven of its last 10 after a 3-7 start. SEE C OLLEGE | C5 By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent PANAMA CITY — Gulf Coast didn’t have to win in Wednes day night’s home finale against Northwest Florida State, and that’s a good thing. But because of a 64-61 loss to the No. 5 Lady Raiders at Billy Harrison Field House, the Lady Commodores’ margin for error in the race to the state tournament in Ocala officially is gone. Simone Westbrook scored 16 of her game-high 20 points in the second half to lead NWFS (24-2 overall, 9-2 in the Panhandle Conference) to the victory. The outcome also kept alive the Lady Raiders’ hopes of a Panhandle Conference title. For the Lady Commodores (17-9, 4-7), the loss means that a win Saturday at Pensacola State is a must if they want to continue playing. Gulf Coast could’ve moved one step closer to clinching third place and a state tourna ment berth outright with a win Wednesday, but now will need to win Saturday to tie Tallahassee (5-7) and force a one-game play off Tuesday.

Patrick goes to backup DAYT O NA BEACH (AP) — Here are some things to know about what’s going on at Daytona International Speedway, where drivers are preparing for Sunday’s sea son-opening Daytona 500: EAR L Y W RECK: Danica Patrick and Denny Hamlin wrecked during Daytona 500 practice Wednesday. Patrick’s No. 10 Chevro let sustained enough dam age that she was forced to switch to a backup car and will have to start at the back of the field in the sec ond of two qualifying races today. Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota was repairable. Patrick and Hamlin started the pileup by mak ing contact coming out of the second turn. Casey Mears, Michael Annett and Jeb Bur ton also were involved. Patrick called it “the nature of pack racing” while Hamlin said “you always have to give a little bit extra room in practice.” But neither driver took full blame, with Hamlin calling it a “miscalculation one way or another on one of our parts.” Patrick, who started on the pole for the Daytona 500 two years ago, said she’s dis appointed to go to a backup car. “I know that it was a good car and it’s never a good thing to crash,” she said. “Some times there’s not much you can do about it. I could have collected more people and it wouldn’t have been anything that they were a part of. But that’s just group racing at Daytona. That’s the gamble that we all face.” P OW ERBA LL P L AYER: Dale Earnhardt Jr. could hit the jackpot twice this week.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 19, 2015 Many years ago in Opp, Ala., they had what was called a Rattlesnake Rodeo. No, they didn’t ride the rattlesnakes. It seems that everything from fishing tournaments to events involving snakes was called a rodeo, for lack of a better term. In high school I had a jeep with no doors or top that I would drive and I decided to transport another fellow and we would hunt rattlesnakes. Monroe was my sidekick and had never seen a rattlesnake in his life, so he didn’t know what we actually were trying to do. The Rattlesnake Rodeo in Opp was offering a reward for the biggest snake brought in, and we decided we were going to win it. The only catch was the snake had to be brought in alive. In Coffee County, the terrain is hilly and sandy and overgrown with pine trees. It’s the perfect spot for a gopher tortoise. There are two kinds of turtles. One kind is a real turtle that lives in water and the gopher tortoise lives in the sandy, hilly dry parts of the country. I’m not too sure where the water variety of turtles goes when it gets real cold since both of these animals are reptiles. But the gopher will dig himself a long hole in the ground and this is home during the winter months. He will crawl into his burrow when winter arrives and return to the surface when the weather is warm enough. What the tortoise doesn’t realize is that he is not just building himself a winter home, but also a winter home for other creatures that can’t stand the cold. That includes just about any snake that happens along and finds this ready made wintering condo. It is well known among bird hunters that diamond back rattlesnakes will winter in these gopher holes. If the hunter sees the hole before his bird dog approaches it he will run the dog away from it for fear a rattler is laying on the outside sunning and could strike and bite his dog. Plenty of times while bird hunting I have seen snakes, not just rattlers, outside a gopher hole sunning on a winter day. Even if the temperature is freezing down on the ground, out of the wind it is warm enough for a reptile to be comfortable. If you are ever bitten by a rattler, you or someone in your family better have about $20,000 stuck under the mattress, and that also goes if your dog is bitten. Either way, it is a costly little exercise to be bitten by a poisonous snake. One cold sunny day Monroe and I were on the hunt for the biggest rattlesnake in the Opp Rodeo when we topped a terrace in and old cotton field that hadn’t been plowed in a year or two. Monroe spied a giant gopher hole. If a snake or other animal has been using a gopher hole, coming and going out of the hole the entrance will be clean of brush and other stuff that usually blows into it during the winter. If it is clean of spider webs and the ground looks like it has been swept by a broom, that tells me something is using the hole to get out of the cold. Since I never have seen a gopher come and go I surmise the creature keeping this entrance clean is a snake. I drove over to this particular gopher hole and the entrance was as clean as your kitchen floor. Back in the 1960s, the way we caught a rattlesnake was to pour a teaspoon of gasoline into a garden hose and then blow the gas into the hole, thus running the snake out. What we didn’t know was as we were running the snake out we were also killing every gopher that was wintering in the hole. Not a good way to rid the countryside of rattlesnakes. This way of getting a rattlesnake to come to the surface has since been halted in Florida and I hope it has been halted in Alabama. Florida has taken a hard stance when it comes to protecting gophers and it should. At any rate, we piled out of the jeep dragging garden hoses, cans of gasoline and of course my pistol, just in case if Monroe was bitten I could make it easier on him than him just dying of snake bite. A gopher hole doesn’t just go straight down, it will twist and turn and go up and down before the gopher feels like it can be comfortable during the winter and not drown if a big rain comes along. To get the garden hose to the bottom or end of the hole you have to twist and push and pull it until you are satisfied you can’t go any farther. Then you put the end of the hose to your ear and listen for the snake to rattle. I must admit all I ever heard was the hiss of the gopher when I woke it up from a winter nap. Now try to picture this scene. Here’s Monroe and myself on our knees, him pouring gas into the hose and me blowing on the end of the hose trying to get the fumes far enough into the hole to run the snake out. Nothing happened. No hissing of the gopher, no rattling of the snake, just silence. We were so close to the entrance we could see down into the hole when suddenly Monroe fell back and knocked me over. I didn’t have a clue what was going on until he pointed to the top of the gopher hole and there not three feet away was one of the biggest rattlesnakes I had ever seen coiled up in the striking position while trying his best to get back down into the hole. I’m not sure how many times I went snake hunting after that, but I can assure you Monroe Jackson never got back in that jeep if I had gasoline or water hoses in it. We both figured there were better ways to spent our time on winter days than peering down gopher holes.

SPORTS Briefs More early exits in Dubai Tennis DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Second-seeded Petra Kvitova and fourth-seeded Ana Ivanovic followed defending champion Venus Williams to an early exit at the Dubai Tennis Championships on Wednesday. In all, five of the top eight seeded players failed to reach today’s quarterfinals: Kvitova, Ivanovic, No. 5 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 7 Angelique Kerber and No. 8 Williams. By contrast, top-seeded Simona Halep and thirdseeded Caroline Wozniacki scored straight set victories to advance. Kvitova, the reigning Wimbledon champion, went down 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 to 13th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro, while Ivanovic fell to 17th-seeded Karolina Pliskova 6-2, 4-6, 6-4. Suarez Navarro pulled out of the Antwerp final this past Sunday with a neck injury, but appears in fine form this week. Williams, with three career titles in Dubai, lost 6-4, 6-2 to 11th-seeded Lucie Safarova. The eighth-seeded Williams looked listless in the humid 93 degree F (34 C) temperatures. “I think she played awesome,” Williams said. “There were a couple of games there that I didn’t even get my racket on the ball. What can I say to that?” Williams offered Safarova six opportunities to break serve and the Czech player took advantage four times, twice in each set. NHL: Red Wings top Blackhawks CHICAGO — Tomas Tartar scored in regulation and in the shootout, leading Jimmy Howard and the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. Gustav Nyquist also scored in the tiebreaker for Detroit, which won for just the third time in 11 shootouts this season. Darren Helm had a goal and an assist, and Howard made 32 saves through overtime. Senators 4, Canadiens 2 OTTAWA, Ontario — Andrew Hammond made 42 saves in his first NHL start and led Ottawa over Montreal. Milan Michalek, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Mark Stone and Kyle Turris, scored for the Senators (23-23-10). Defenseman Erik Karlsson had two assists for the fourth straight game. Hammond stopped the first 26 shots he faced. Area EVENTS College baseball: Shelton State at Gulf Coast, 5 p.m. Boys weightlifting: Mosley at Rutherford 3:30 p.m. Bay meet.

Gordon retired seven straight dur ing one stretch and breezed into the fourth inning with a 5-0 lead. Wallace then posted its biggest threat when Segree and Jamaica Williams singled with nobody out and Jecca Carden followed with an RBI double. Gordon looked as though she would pitch out of further trouble by notching a pair of strikeouts with run ners on second and third. But she hit Tara Rogers with a pitch to load the bases and then mishandled Caitlin Jones’ roller to the mound. Her teammates picked her up when Faulkenberry lashed a two-run single in the fifth and Sankey was hit by another pitch to force in a run in the sixth. Fields and Faulkenberry gave Mitts an early cushion when Fields scored on the front end of a double steal in the bottom of the first inning in Game 2 and Faulkenberry cruised home on a wild pitch by losing pitcher Tara Trant. The Saints, 0-6, tied it with two runs in the top of the second, how ever, when Mitts struggled with her control. She hit Carden with a pitch and walked Rogers to put two run ners on with one out. Trant then laced a single up the middle, and when Fields threw to the plate Trant continued toward second. The only problem was that Rogers occupied that base. The Lady Com modores suffered one of their few lapses when temporary confusion in the infield enabled Trant to slide back safely into first. Mitts walked Jones to force in a run and Hannah Fountain tied it 2-2 with a sacrifice fly to Fields in center. That was about it for the Saints as Mitts found a groove starting with the third inning to finish with a four-hitter. She walked Segree to open the third and Williams immediately singled, but catcher Taylor Campbell erased Williams trying to steal to quell that threat. Mitts struck out two batters in each of the last four innings, the only hiccup singles by Fountain and Seg ree in the fifth. Campbell’s two-run double in the bottom of the fifth gave Mitts a four-run cushion. Dozier was 3 for 6 in her first action of the season and played flawlessly in the field. Campbell added three RBIs to her team-leading total. Segree, Williams and Carden each had two hits for LB Wallace in the opener and Segree had two of the four hits that Mitts allowed. The Lady Commodores, who have defeated the Saints four times this season, will attempt to get past the .500 plateau for the first time this sea son when they participate in the Sun Chief Classic at Faulkner State on Friday and Saturday in Gulf Shores, Ala. They don’t return home until Feb. 28. Baseball time change Due to a forecast for colder weather, the game time of today’s Gulf Coast vs. Shelton State baseball game at Bill Frazier Field has been moved up to 3 p.m. Jacksonville 5, FSU 3 JACKS ON VI LLE — A ninth-inning rally by FSU fell short as Nathan Disch struck out Josh Delph with the tying run at second base. Trailing 3-0 heading into the ninth, the Seminoles (3-1) pushed a run across when Danny De La Calle smashed a bases-loaded RBI single over the outstretched glove of left fielder Austin Hays. With baserunners unsure if Hays would come up with the catch, they advanced just one base resulting in a rundown with De La Calle being thrown out at first. The Seminoles had just four hits, two in the ninth, as the outcome snapped Florida State’s nine-game win streak in the series and marked Jacksonville’s first win over FSU since April 14, 2010. Florida 13, USF 3 TAMPA — Brett Morales pitched six perfect innings and Florida backed him with 14 hits as the Gators improved to 4-0. Florida took the lead in the first inning on a two-run double by cleanup hitter Harrison Bader. The Gators added another run in the second on an RBI single by Buddy Reed. Meanwhile Morales faced only 18 batters through six innings and struck out seven. JJ Schwarz’s two-run homer extended Florida’s lead to 5-0 and the Gators poured it on in the later innings. Schwarz was 3 for 5 with five runs batted in. Reed was 3 for 6, Bader 2 for 3 with three RBIs and Richie Martin knocked in two runs. USF is 2-2. Gulf Coast second baseman Kinsley Faulkenberry settles under a pop fly on Wednesday. Faulkenberry had four hits and four runs batted in on the day. hoping to win the $500 million jackpot. “Amy got mad at me,” Earn hardt said. “She’s like, ‘What the hell are you buying a Powerball ticket for? You don’t need to be winning it.’ And I promised her right then I would split half with a charity. So she made me feel pretty bad.” Why does a guy who can have just about anything he wants buy a lottery ticket? “I don’t know. Everybody else was buying them, and I want to play,” he said. “I want to have fun. ... We’ve got a group text with all the guys that work on the farm. We text pictures back and forth of our Powerball tickets to each other. So we have a little fun with that.” Earnhardt doesn’t pick his own numbers. He goes with the “quickpick.” “Just give me the ticket,” he said. “We were talking out of the elevator and there was this little kiosk of all kinds of different stuff and somebody was buying one when we walked by and I said, ‘Hey, I’m going to get me one. I don’t even know what I’m doing. Just give me the ticket.’ “When the numbers came, they popped up on my phone and that was pretty convenient. But we didn’t win. Actually, I won 12 bucks. I hit the Powerball number. So that gives you something like 12 bucks.” Instead of reinvesting in another lottery ticket, he pocketed the cash. Asked what his Powerball number would be if he picked it himself Wednesday — the 14th anniversary of his father’s death at Daytona International Speed way — Earnhardt’s answer was spot on. “One number? Three. Three today. Why not?” he said, refer ring to the famed No. 3 his father drove. CHAS E EL IGIBI L ITY: NASCAR has updated eligibility for drivers to qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Driv ers must start all races to be eli gible for the 10-race Chase. Under the previous rule, drivers needed just to attempt to qualify for every race. A driver does not lose Chase eligibility for attempting to qualify for a race and failing to make the field. NASCAR could offer waivers in certain circumstances like it did last season for Tony Stewart and this season for Brian Vickers. He will miss the Daytona 500 and next week’s race in Atlanta following heart surgery. HIST OR IC STA R T ER : NASCAR named series official Kim Lopez as the chief starter for Sunday’s Daytona 500. Lopez will become the first woman and first Hispanic to flag the race. Lopez is in her 11th season with NASCAR and has flagged races for the past seven years in the Xfinity Series and Truck Series. She also flagged two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races last season. The chief starter displays the eight flags that tell the drivers to start, slow down, move over or stop. Lopez also will wave the checkered flag when the winner crosses the finish line. Lopez says: “You have little girls who can now look up and say, ‘I can do this someday, I can be this someday.’ ” QUA L IFYI N G CHA N G E S: Just days after Daytona 500 pole qualifying turned into a debacle, NASCAR has tweaked qualifying procedures for its lower series at Daytona International Speedway. The Xfinity and Camping World Truck fields will be divided into four groups instead of two for the first round and it will last 2 minutes instead of 5. That should force cars to leave pit road instead of playing cat-and-mouse games with competitors. NASCAR also will stage cars on pit road in a single file before the clock starts. When the cars pull out of line, they must leave pit road. On Sunday, the Daytona 500 qualifying session was done in knockout rounds for the first time in 57 years. Drivers jockeyed for position on pit road, leading to a traffic jam. CHI E F STA R T ER : NASCAR named series official Kim Lopez as the chief starter for Sunday’s Daytona 500.

(AP) — The San Francisco Giants roll in even years, winning the World Series in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Enough of that pattern, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “We want to have a lot of fun in an odd year,” he said while San Francisco pitchers and catchers reported for spring training on Wednesday. Pitchers and catchers also reported to the Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians and Philadelphia Phillies. The rest of the major league teams will get going over the next few days, half of them in Arizona, half in Florida. As usual, pitching should be San Francisco’s strength. Bochy said he’s pretty set on the five-man rotation that will open the season. He didn’t name them. But by eliminating the non-starters he did mention, the five would be ace Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Tim Hudson, Jake Peavy and Tim Lincecum. “We haven’t put the order down exactly but we’ve got a pretty good idea of what it’s going to be,” Bochy said. He said Ryan Vogelsong and Yusmeiro Petit would be long-relievers and spot starters. Vogelsong re-signed with San Francisco, a one-year, $4 million deal, knowing the crowded starter situation he was rejoining. “We talked a little bit about the situation and he under stands it,” Bochy said. “You can’t have enough depth in the rotation. I’m glad that Ryan decided to come back with us and I think it’s going to be a workable situation. They can help each other out, maybe give a guy a start off.” Lincecum said he has rediscovered the mechanics that once made him among the best in the game. “My body just started to kind of click and grasp onto the things I used to do naturally,” he said. He isn’t taking the starting role for granted. “I feel I have to re-earn my spot in the rotation,” he said. “I didn’t really finish off the year very well last year at all. That kind of left a drive in me. I want to get that back and discover what went wrong.” Cain seems to be fully recovered from last year’s surger ies on his right elbow and right ankle. “Matt looks great, feels great,” Bochy said. “I mean, really has got a great look about him. I think he’s excited that he’s healthy again and he’ll be back on the mound. He’s a big part of the staff. We need him. We need Matt to be who he is and stay healthy this year.” Of the projected starting five, only the 39-year-old Hud son won’t be ready right off this spring. He is still recovering from surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. “I’m probably a couple of weeks behind where I nor mally am,” Hudson said. “I had my surgery on the second of January so I wasn’t able to start throwing until the latter part of January. So just from a throwing standpoint I have a little ways to go before I’m ready to get in some games. My mindset is just to be ready for the real games when the season starts, whether that means me pitching in one game or four games this spring.” The team lost two starters from last year’s champion ship squad. Third baseman Pablo Sandoval signed a fiveyear, $95 million free agent contract with Boston. Mike Morse signed a two-year, $16 million deal with Miami. But those who are returning are a strong bunch, their manager said. “With this team, I think it’s fair to say we’re pretty well set,” Bochy said. “...We’re in a good place. We’d like to have a lot of fun in an odd year. We’d like to change that up, so we’ll see if we can do that. I love the fact that we’ve had the continuity here with this staff. We have depth in the rotation. This is a team with a lot of character.” Sitting in the Scottsdale Stadium dugout, the manager reflected only briefly on last year’s triumph. “We had a great year last year,” he said. “I hope they took time to enjoy it and savor all of that, but it’s time to go to work.” At the Phillies camp in Clearwater, manager Ryne Sand berg said Ryan Howard would be the team’s first baseman, despite the team’s rebuilding efforts and attempts to trade the declining veteran. Howard is due a minimum of $60 million over the next two years. “Right now he’s here to prepare for the season as one of the guys,” Sandberg said. “If he gets to where he’s hitting 30-35 home runs, which is good home runs for this day and age of baseball, he can help us win games this year. To see him in the spring and see him prepare and have him get ready, he’s here. Right now, unless he gets unseated he’s the first baseman.” Giants want to win in ‘odd year’


SPORT S Page C6 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 19, 2015 Duke tops UNC in OT; Gators, Seminoles win DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Quinn Cook scored 22 points and No. 4 Duke beat No. 15 North Carolina 92-90 in overtime on Wednesday night. In a thriller befitting college basketball’s fiercest rivalry, the Blue Devils (23-3, 10-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) let an early 13-point lead slip away and trailed by 10 with less than 4 minutes left in regulation before rallying. They sent it into OT and won their ninth in 12 in the series. Tyus Jones had 22 points, Jus tise Winslow added 16 points and Jahlil Okafor had 12 points and 13 rebounds for Duke. Kennedy Meeks and Brice Johnson each scored 18 points to lead North Carolina (18-8, 8-5). Nate Britt pulled the Tar Heels within two with one free throw with 3.5 seconds left. He missed the second, Mar cus Paige raced in and got his hands on the rebound — but Winslow grabbed it as the buzzer sounded. Florida 50, Vanderbilt 47 GAINSVILLE — After starter Devin Robinson finished the first half with just two points and only 6 minutes on the court, UF coach Billy Donovan had a talk with the freshman. “He was tough on me,” Robinson said. “He said a couple words that probably hurt my feelings, but I didn’t put my head down. I just went out there and took it as a challenge.” Robinson responded to that chal lenge by slamming a two-handed dunk off a feed from Kasey Hill with 2.1 seconds remaining to give Florida a win over Vanderbilt. Robinson finished the game with 12 points to go along with six rebounds. “It was a good feed,” Robinson said. “He penetrated, got the big men in the air and I was just in the right spot at the right time.” After Florida (13-13, 6-7 SEC) took a 19-12 lead with 8:37 left in the first half, Vanderbilt (14-12, 4-9) went on a 13-0 run to take a 25-19 advantage into halftime, with freshman Riley LaChance scoring six points off 2-of-2 shooting from beyond the arc. The Gators missed all 10 of their shots during that span. “Even when we’re getting fairly decent looks, we’re not making shots,” Donovan said. FSU 69, Boston College 60 TALLAHASSEE — Devon Bookert scored 18 points, making 6 of 7 shots from the floor, as Florida State defeated Boston College. Olivier Hanlan scored 32 points on 12 of 22 shooting for the Eagles, who lost their seventh-straight game. Phil Cofer and Xavier Rathan-Mayes added 13 points each for Florida State (15-12, 7-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), which has gone 6-3 in its last nine games. The Seminoles made just eight shots in the first half but finished 21 of 44 (47.7 percent) from the floor. Aaron Brown scored 15 points for Boston College (9-16, 1-12), which shot 23 of 50 (46 percent) from the floor. Rathan-Mayes put Florida State ahead for good, 49-48, with a layup with 9:29 to go. The Eagles opened up a 32-27 half time lead but went just 9 of 22 (40 per cent) from the floor in the second half as they played just two days after a doubleovertime loss at home to Miami. Hanlan shot 10 of 15 and had 23 points in the first half. But Florida State made some defensive adjustments in the second half, and Hanlan made just 2 of 7 field goals. No. 5 Wisconsin 55, Penn State 47 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Sam Decker scored 22 points and Frank Kaminsky added 16 as No. 5 Wiscon sin overcame a late Penn State surge to defeat the Nittany Lions. No. 11 Northern Iowa 59, Loyola 39 CHICAGO — Seth Tuttle and Nate Buss each scored 10 points as Northern Iowa won its 14th straight. The Panthers (25-2, 14-1 Missouri Valley Conference) never trailed and moved within one win of matching the 2009-10 team’s school record streak. Syracuse 69, No. 12 Louisville 59 SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Rakeem Christmas rebounded from his worst game of the season, scoring 29 points and blocking four shots. It was the first game between the teams as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Syracuse (17-9, 8-5 ACC) was coming off an 80-72 home loss to fourth-ranked Duke in which Christmas was outplayed by freshman Jahlil Okafor. Louisville (20-6, 8-5) was out to bounce back from Saturday’s home loss to North Carolina State, but was without senior guard Chris Jones, who was suspended for violating team rules and did not make the trip. Freshman Quentin Snider made his first start in place of Jones, the team’s assist leader (3.7 per game) and third-leading scorer (13.6 points). No. 18 Arkansas 84, Missouri 69 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Michael Qualls had 21 points and No. 18 Arkansas beat Missouri for its fifth straight victory and eighth in nine games. Miami 76, Virginia Tech 52 CORAL GABLES — Sheldon McClellan scored 21 points, Tonye Jekiri finished with 15 points and 15 rebounds and Miami shook off a slow start to eas ily beat Virginia Tech. Angel Rodriguez added 11 points for the Hurricanes (17-9, 7-6 ACC), who used a 17-4 run to open up what was a three-point game at halftime and kept steadily adding to the lead. Adam Smith scored 15 for Virginia Tech (10-16, 2-11), which made its first three shots — then missed 23 of its next 30. Devin Wilson and Justin Bibbs each finished with 11 for the Hokies. PATTI BLA K E | The News Herald Gulf Coast’s Rochelle Vasquez, right, and Alliyah Smith struggle for control in the Lady Commodores’ 64-61 defeat on Wednesday. W OMEN from Page C1 wanted, but they’re still in contention and that’s all any team at this point in the season can ask for, Gulf Coast coach Roonie Scovel said. “It would’ve been nice,” Scovel said of having a chance to clinch Saturday. “But it’s not over for us. We’ve still got a chance to go win Saturday and force a tiebreaker and then go try to win that one and get to the state tournament.” The Lady Commodores had a chance to force a different scenario, but missed multiple chances to take the lead or tie in the final minute. A steal and layup by Chelsey Gibson brought GC to within one at 62-61 with 1:46 to play, but the Lady Commodores came up empty on their next two possessions. Gibson missed a contested shot inside on Gulf Coast’s first opportunity to take the lead. Following a turnover moments later, Bri Williams’ pass ahead to a streak ing Tianah Alvarado was too strong and the ball went out of bounds with 36 seconds left. Scovel chose to play for a defensive stop instead of foul, and the Lady Raid ers capitalized with a basket inside by Tyshara Fleming with 5.8 seconds to play. The Lady Commodores rushed back upcourt and got a clean look from the 3-point line by Gibson, but the shot rimmed off as time expired. Gibson was one of three Gulf Coast players in addition to Alvarado and Rochelle Vasquez to score 13 points. Kristina King led the Lady Commodores with 14. Fleming added 13 points for the Lady Raiders, but it was reigning Panhandle Conference Player of the Year Westbrook who seized control down the stretch. After a basket by Joanne Booker trimmed what was a nine-point NWFS lead to three at 49-46, Westbrook answered with a driving bucket for a three-point play to double the margin. After two more free throws, West brook hit a 3-pointer with 4:18 to play to put the Lady Raiders up 60-52. Alvarado answered for Gulf Coast with a 3 to cut the deficit to five. Alvarado later scored in transition to trim the margin to 60-58, but Westbrook responded with a bucket off glass in the paint to put NWFS up four with 2:21 left. The Lady Commodores couldn’t exe cute well enough in the final 2 minutes to complete the comeback, but Scovel said it was the mistakes throughout the game that resulted in the loss. “I don’t think Northwest Florida State won this one as much as Gulf Coast lost it,” Scovel said. “There were so many lit tle things we didn’t do well, starting with free throws. We also had some turnovers late in the game that were crucial. It was just some bad shooting, bad passing, bad coaching, and bad decisions. “It’s tough because that’s two games we’ve had against them here where we probably should’ve won, but we didn’t get it done.” The free-throw line differential proved to be essential for the Lady Raiders in the win as they converted 18-of-26 while Gulf Coast made just 4-11. The Lady Raiders will finish their regular season Saturday at Chipola in a game that will determine the top seed from the Panhandle Conference at the state tournament in Ocala.

Taylor was the winning pitcher tossing a four-hitter with five strikeouts. Abbie Barron had three singles for the Rams, 3-1, who regis tered 14 hits. Karisa Pledger and Taylor Stalnaker each added two hits. Rutherford’s scheduled District 1-5A game vs. Mos ley on Tuesday was post poned by inclement weather. No makeup date has yet been announced.

Taylor, Rams turn back Seahawks PREP MEN from Page C1 to lead the Commodores, with Quavius Copeland add ing 16, Cobe Goosby 15 and Jonathan Wade and DeMa rio Beck 14 each. Jalen Jackson had 24 points to lead the Raid ers, who fell to 25-2 overall and 9-2 in the conference. The win snapped a twogame skid for the Commo dores, who had followed a four-game winning streak with a pair of disappointing losses to Chipola and Talla hassee to fall out of second place. Gulf Coast got back in the win column Wednesday with the kind of effort its coach has been calling for. “I think we just played for 40 minutes,” Commodores coach Jay Powell said. “We stayed calm against their pressure and did a good job of just trying to continue to play our game. We wouldn’t have lost two in a row if we would’ve just been strong and confident and played the way we should play. “We had to come out tonight and play well and play together and the men did that for us.” NWFS had already clinched the conference championship, but the game held far greater import for the Commodores, who with a loss would’ve had to win Saturday just to force a one-game playoff with Pensacola. Saturday’s showdown with the Pirates now sets up as a winner-take-all for a trip to Ocala. “Pensacola has had a good season and we’ve had a good season. It just comes down to who wants it more,” Powell said. “We’ve got to figure out a way to play good team ball and figure out how to win it.” Wednesday’s victory certainly didn’t come easy for the Commodores, who held on to a tenuous lead for the final 15:23 of the game in the face of fero cious defensive pressure from the Raiders. Beck’s offensive rebound and putback early in the second half gave Gulf Coast the lead for good at 46-45. A corner 3-pointer by Beck, a putback by Wade, and two free throws by Beck gave the Commodores an eight-point edge with 12:32 remaining. The Raiders got back to within three at 57-54 follow ing a pair of free throws by Brandon Austin and a bas ket by Jackson. The Commodores answered with a pull-up jumper by Copeland and a driving basket by Goosby to go up seven. Northwest Florida twice cut the lead to four at 62-58 and 68-64, but the Com modores pushed it back to eight thanks to four straight points from Waters. His bucket off of an inbounds play under the basket made it 72-64 with 3:14 left. An offensive rebound and putback by Andrew Rogers on a missed free throw cut the lead to four with 1:13 to play, and Xavier Moon missed a chance to cut it to one with a missed 3-pointer moments later. After Goosby split a pair of free throws with 35.5 sec onds left, Moon scored to cut it to three at 78-75, and the Commodores turned it over and fouled on the ensu ing inbound to put Treshaad Williams on the line. Williams made both free throws to make it a one-point game with 20.6 seconds left, but Goosby answered with two free throws to put the Commodores back up by three. The Raiders had two chances to tie on their next possession, with Moon miss ing a 3 from the left wing and missing again from the left corner after an offensive rebound. The Commodores came out with the ball after a scrum under the basket and Goosby made a free throw with 0.7 seconds to play to seal the win. Gulf Coast trailed by three after a back and forth first half. The Commodores led 9-4 after a 3-pointer by Wade before the Raiders came back with an 18-5 run to go up 22-14 following con secutive buckets by Benji Bell. The lead was 10 following a pull-up jumper by Austin and a free throw by Bell with 7:27 to half, but Wade sparked a 14-3 run to put the Commodores back on top. A dunk by Davaris McGowens started the run, with Wade scoring six straight points starting with a pair of strong drives to the hoop. A 3 by Copeland got the Commodores back to within a point, with an offensive rebound and strong put back by Beck for a threepoint play giving Gulf Coast a 30-29 lead with 3:49 to halftime. Austin put the Raiders back in front at the break thanks to a pretty lefthanded scoop shot in the lane and a 3-pointer that gave NWFS a 41-38 halftime lead. The Raiders will close out their regular season Saturday at home against Chipola.

DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Twins come up with solution that doubles the trouble DEAR AMY: I am a father of 17year-old twin daughters graduating soon from high school. I divorced seven years ago. My ex-wife remarried immediately; I have not. My daughters live primarily with their mother and stepfather in a home in the country. My relationships with my wonderful daughters could not be better. My daughters’ relationships with their mother and her husband are poor. My daughters’ stepfather is manipulative and controlling. Their mother enables and joins in this behavior. Things were OK until I was finally forced to stand up to her husband 18 months ago on behalf of my daughters when their mother would not. Today my ex-wife and her husband dislike me intensely. My ex-wife anticipates hosting a graduation party at their house to which I will not be invited. This does not sit well with my daughters. One daughter wants to say that if I am not invited, the girls and I will rent a facility, throw a party, and that neither my ex-wife nor her husband will be invited (I wouldn’t care if they were invited or not). What should my daughters do, and how can I help them? ALL ABOUT THE KIDS DEAR ALL ABOUT: You sound like a laid-back but very proactive and protective father. Good for you! Though I think you should be proud of your kids for advocating for you, I don’t think they should be encouraged to throw a competing graduation party that is basically the mirror image of the party being hosted at home — complete with the exclusion of parents. You should convey that, though you would like to be included in this party, you can’t control their mother and stepfather. The parents can plan whatever party they want; the girls can then decide whether to attend. I believe that if you do choose to host a graduation party, you should not hold it the same day. Also let the daughters know that you don’t exclude family members and that their mother and stepfather would be invited. DEAR AMY: I recently left a difficult living situation, sharing a house with two roommates. About two months before I moved out, one of my roommates asked if I would like a lamp that her friend was giving away. She had eyes on another lamp this friend was getting rid of and offered to bring both home, giving one to me. I loved the lamp and thanked her profusely. Shortly thereafter I moved out, taking my things (including the lamp) with me. Said roommate contacted me a month later. She said she never intended to give me the lamp and that she would like to have it back. I am not sure how our understanding of the situation came to be so different, and I am struggling to find a moral high road. BETWEEN A LAMP AND A HARD PLACE DEAR BETWEEN: Before bringing morality into it, ask her a question: “Don’t you remember giving it to me? You brought the two lamps home and gave one to me, right?” If your former roommate disputes this, you will have to decide whether the lamp is worth the price of the relationship — and possibly a visit to Judge Judy’s courtroom. Ex-roomie has waited too long to demand it; I say keep the lamp, ditch the person. DEAR AMY: “Peter” wanted other people not to eat greasy fast food in his presence in public places. Many years ago I worked at a fitness club in sales. The sales force inhabited a very small office with a part-time marketing designer who hated the smell of hot food. The sales force often worked 12to 14-hour shifts. Our supervisor insisted that we not bring our hot food to our desks — our only opportunity to eat — because of the part-timer’s “sensitivity.” I was appalled.

Each number can appear only once in each row, level ranges from Bronze (easiest) to Silver to Gold (hardest). 2015 Janric Enterprises Dist. by JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row, level ranges from Bronze (easiest) to Silver to Gold (hardest). 2015 Janric Enterprises Dist. by Creators ARIES (March 21-April 19): When you fight with yourself, fight fair! Only one of you will be left standing. The good news is that this transformation probably won’t be painful, just awkward. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your eyes are open to a clearer, faster, more direct way to happiness. Tonight, those close to you will benefit from your crazy generosity. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): For your life to be happy, it must be full. And for your life to be full, it must be happy. Therefore, the most important move is the one you believe will bring the most happiness. CANCER (June 22-July 22): In Internetspeak, NSFW translates to “not safe for work.” You may feel that your entire mood is NSFW , as you would like to tell a lot of people how you really feel. However, your self-control will be rewarded. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When people make you mad, and they will, try to stay calm. It’s fine for you to be angry, but you’ll lose your power and status if you show it too much. One strategy? Walk away. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Attractive solutions abound. Sometimes things look good because they are good. Just because something has a pretty sheen to it doesn’t mean you should be suspicious. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Explore your talents. This is best done by trying new things without a worry or care about who is watching or what they’ll think. You’ll make friends along the way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Today’s activities will not be what you would normally consider cause for celebration. Celebrate them anyway. Someone new will want to join in with all the fun you’re having. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): All it takes is one sound decision to usher more love and money into your life. It’s not a hard one to make, but it does require the tenacity to see it through. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have a weird way of working through things, and you should trust that however different it may be from the way others do it, it’s still a good way for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You deal with life according to how you feel at the moment, and there will be several moments today that are highly charged. Emotional distancing may be in order. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The new people coming into your life have no idea who you are, so feel free to playfully create an accurate picture for them. You’ll do quite a lot in the name of fun!

There are 315 days left in the year. This is the Lunar New Year of the Goat. Highlight in history On Feb. 19, 1945, Operation Detachment began during World War II as some 30,000 U.S. Marines began landing on Iwo Jima, where they commenced a successful month-long battle to seize control of the island from Japanese forces. On this date 1473 — Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus was born in Torun, Poland. 1915 — During World War I, British and French warships launched their initial attack on Ottoman forces in the Dardanelles, a strait in northwestern Turkey. (The Gallipoli Campaign that followed proved disastrous for the Allies.) 1942 — President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, clearing the way for the U.S. military to relocate and intern Japanese-Americans during World War II. 1959 — An agreement was signed by Britain, Turkey and Greece granting Cyprus its independence. 1963 — “The Feminine Mystique” by Betty Friedan was first published by W.W. Norton & Co. 1976 — Calling the issuing of Executive Order 9066 “a sad day in American history,” President Gerald R. Ford issued a proclamation confirming that the order had been terminated with the formal cessation of hostilities of World War II. Thought for today “Look at everything as though you were seeing it for the first time or the last time.
