Stephen Trusty, 33, was sentenced to serve 25 years for the murder of 34-year-old Leonard Price. That will be followed by 26 years for threatening witnesses to the slaying. Trusty was charged with murder after police found Price shot to death early May 28 on a lawn between Roosevelt and Carver drives in Panama City. Trusty later was found guilty of second-degree murder and tampering with witnesses. Prosecutors presented a video of Price leaving the area of Trustyâ€™s room at the USA Inn at 710 E. 15th St., with the bicycle about midnight. About 40 minutes later, police were called to a shooting and found Price dead from five gunshot wounds, two of them in the back. South W alton eyes incorporation of 16 communities By TOM McL A UGHLIN 315-4435 | @ T omMnwfdn email@example.com S A NT A ROS A BE A CH â€” Imagine a city stretching across South Walton County, encompassing everything east of Destin and west of Bay County and consolidating 16 communities into one municipality. It could be San Grayton Dune Color Mountain. Or Rosemary Sea Water Grove Crest. As absurd as the possible names might sound, so too â€” to some people â€” must be the thought that the many enclaves that give South Walton its unique character would willingly be clumped together as a single city. ST EPHEN T RU STY Lucky resident saves 8 animals from inferno By Z A CK McDONALD 747-5071 | @ P C N Hzack firstname.lastname@example.org HIL A ND P A RK â€” Residents of a home that was engulfed in flames Friday afternoon narrowly escaped with the life of their blind dog. No injuries were reported in the house fire at 2139 E. Baldwin Road, officials said. Mark Robertson, a resident of the home, cradled a whimpering, shaggy dog with burns on its feet about 1 p.m. across the street as the fire raged. Moments earlier, he had frantically rushed to get four dogs, two parakeets and two cats out of the house before the flames grew to the towering inferno the home eventually would become. Robertson said he noticed something smoking in the home only about 30 minutes earlier, but couldnâ€™t find a fire extinguisher. Suddenly, the entire house was filled with blinding smoke. NARROW ESCAPE HE A THER LEIPH A RT | The News Herald A house at 2139 E. Baldwin Road was destroyed by fire Friday. Firefighters from Lynn Haven, Springfield and Bay County battled the fire for hours.

The ongoing saga of Sprout Pharmaceuticalâ€™s female libido drug illustrates the complicated politics and unresolved science surrounding womenâ€™s sexuality. For decades, drugmakers have tried unsuccessfully to develop a female equivalent to Viagra, the blockbuster drug that treats menâ€™s erectile dysfunction drug by increasing blood ow. But disorders of womenâ€™s sexual desire have proven resistant to drugs that act on blood ow, hormones and other simple biological functions. Supporters of Sproutâ€™s drug say womenâ€™s sexual disorders have been overlooked for too long by regulators at the Food and Drug Administration. But critics argue womenâ€™s sexuality is too complex to be addressed by a single pill. Sproutâ€™s drug ibanserin is the rst attempt to increase libido by acting on brain chemicals linked to appetite and mood. But the Food and Drug Administration already has twice rejected the drug because of lackluster effectiveness and side effects including fatigue, dizziness and nausea. In an effort to break the regulatory logjam, groups sponsored by Sprout and other drugmakers have begun publicizing the lack of a â€œfemale Viagraâ€ as a womenâ€™s rights issue. â€œWomen deserve equal treatment when it comes to sex,â€ states an online petition to the FDA organized by Even the Score. BY THE NUMBERS 120,000 People ages 10-19 who died of AIDS-related illnesses in 2013. Global health organizations said that AIDS is now the leading cause of death for adolescents in Africa, and the second leading cause of death among adolescents globally, behind road accidents and injury. 101 Cases of mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer, found among a group of miners employed in Minnesotaâ€™s iron mining industry between 1930 and 1982. The stateâ€™s Department of Health and the University of Minnesota have been tracking 69,000 taconite workers to assess the risk from exposure to tiny mineral particles. 480,000 U.S. deaths attributed to smoking each year. But a new report ties breast cancer, prostate cancer and even routine infections to smoking, adding 60,000 to 120,000 more deaths each year to that number. 2.5 M I LL ION Americans who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome. The Institute of Medicine renamed the illness Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease, or SEID, in an attempt to show itâ€™s a real and debilitating disease. â€œThis is not a gment of their imagination,â€ said Dr. Ellen Wright Clayton of Vanderbilt Universityâ€™s Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society, who chaired the IOM panel. â€œThese patients have real symptoms. They deserve real care.â€ 800,000 Strokes in the U.S. each year caused by a blood clot lodged in the brain. New stents similar to the ones used to open clogged heart arteries also can be used to clear a blood clot in the brain, greatly lowering the risk a patient will end up disabled. Two brands are sold in the U.S. â€” Trevo, made by Stryker Corp. of Kalamazoo, Mich., and Solitaire, made by Covidien, now part of Minneapolis-based Medtronic Inc. Stroke experts say more studies were needed to conrm the stentsâ€™ success. Some people who got them had dramatic results. Don Sadoway, 64, a chemistry professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was having a holiday lunch on Dec. 23, 2012, at a Boston restaurant when he suddenly found he couldnâ€™t lift his wine glass for a toast. His wife was perplexed. â€œI said something unintelligible to her, and all of a sudden my right side collapsed,â€ he said. Doctors at Massachusetts General gave him tPA, but it didnâ€™t work, so they tried a Solitaire stent. â€œTwo hours later, I was sitting up, talking to my kids,â€ said Sadoway, who is ne now except for small problems with memory and ne motor skills. Nation & World Page A2 | The News Herald | Saturday, February 21, 2015 FOCUS HEALTH WASHINGTON (AP) â€” It took 16 years of twists and turns. Over and over, Dr. Nancy Sullivan thought she was close to an Ebola vaccine, only to see the next experi ment fail. â€œA case of resuscitation more than once,â€ is how the National Institutes of Health researcher describes the journey. But it is those failures that Sullivan credits for finally lead ing her to a vaccine promising enough to test in parts of West Africa ravaged by Ebola. Last week, volunteers in Liberiaâ€™s capital began rolling up their sleeves for the first large-scale testing of two potential Ebola vaccines, the one Sullivan developed at NIH and a simi lar one created by Canadaâ€™s government. Sullivan just hopes it was in time to prove whether the shots really work. Ebola has claimed almost 9,000 lives in West Africa over the past year, although new infections have dropped dra matically in recent months. Itâ€™s too soon to declare vic tory: Last week, new cases inched up for the first time this year, and health officials fear a resurgence if they donâ€™t completely stamp out the disease before the upcoming rainy season. Waning cases make it more difficult to tell if a vaccine is protective, but the shots will be tested in multiple places and ways â€œhoping that one of those will give us real data,â€ said Dr. Bruce Aylward of the World Health Organization. WHO approves first quick test for Ebola BER L IN (AP) â€” The World Health Organization has approved a quick test for Ebola that will dramatically cut the time it takes to determine with reasonable accuracy whether someone is infected with the deadly virus. The Geneva-based U.N. agency says the ReEBOV Anti gen Rapid Test Kit, made by the U.S. company Corgenix, meets sufficient quality, safety and performance require ments. WHO said the new test can provide results within 15 minutes by detecting an Ebola protein. In trials it correctly identified 92 percent of the patients with Ebola and 85 percent of those not infected. Until now, Ebola tests have been mainly conducted in laboratories. These genebased tests are more accurate but can take between 12 and 24 hours. Researchers test device to help deaf children detect sounds WASHINGTON (AP) â€” At age 3, Angelica Lopez is help ing to break a sound barrier for deaf children. Born without working audi tory nerves, she can detect sounds for the first time â€” and start to mimic them â€” after undergoing brain surgery to implant a device that bypasses missing wiring in her inner ears. Angelica is one of a small number of U.S. children who are testing whatâ€™s called an auditory brainstem implant, or ABI. The device goes beyond cochlear implants that have brought hearing to many deaf children but that donâ€™t work for tots who lack their hearing nerve. When the ABI is first turned on, â€œshe isnâ€™t going to be hear ing like a 3-year-old. Sheâ€™ll be hearing like a newborn,â€ audi ologist Laurie Eisenberg of the University of Southern Califor nia tells parents. The children donâ€™t magi cally understand and use those sounds. Angelica cried when her ABI first was switched on, scared by the sounds. But five months later, her mother says the youngster uses sign lan guage to identify some sounds â€” that was a cough, thatâ€™s a dog barking. And sheâ€™s begin ning to babble like hearing babies do, as therapists work to teach her oral speech. â€œItâ€™s just so awesome to hear her little voice,â€ said Julie Lopez of Big Spring, Texas, who enrolled her daughter in the study at USC, where research ers say sheâ€™s progressing well. Many children born deaf benefit from cochlear implants, electrodes that send impulses to the auditory nerve, where theyâ€™re relayed to the brain and recognized as sound. But the small fraction born without a working hearing nerve canâ€™t make that brain connection. The ABI attempts to fill that gap by delivering electri cal stimulation directly to the neurons on the brainstem the nerve normally would have targeted. The person wears a microphone on the ear to detect sound, and a processer changes it to electrical signals. Those are beamed to a stimula tor under the skin, which sends the signals snaking through a wire to electrodes surgically placed on the brainstem. The Food and Drug Admin istration approved the device in 2000 specifically for adults and teenagers. About a decade ago, an Italian surgeon started try ing the ABI in deaf children. Now, spurred by some suc cesses abroad, the first U.S. studies in young children are underway at a handful of hospitals. The studies are small, each enrolling 10 to 20 children. Ages vary; the Los Angeles study will implant starting at age 2, while some others try earlier. Children then receive intensive therapy, to learn to hear. DON SA D OWAY â€œThere are 24 approved medical treatments for male sexual dysfunction and not one single treatment yet approved for the most common form of female sexual dysfunction.â€ Congressional letter to the FDA THE SOUND BARRIER Ebola vaccines being tested in West Africa â€œYou need a failure to know what immune responses arenâ€™t helpful, as difficult as they were at the time.â€ Dr. Nancy Sullivan on 16 years of trying to create an Ebola vaccine AP Angelica Lopez, 3, the recipient of an auditory brainstem implant, smiles as her mother, Julie Lopez, punches a paper heart while spelling aloud the sound of â€œpunch.â€ FRID AYâ€™S NUMBERS Cash 3 (afternoon) ........... 1-1-5 Cash 3 (evening) ............ . 7-6-7 Play 4 (afternoon) . ........ . 8-9-4-7 Play 4 (evening) .......... . 0-3-6-1 Fantasy 5 . ............ . unavailable Lucky Money . ..... . 9-18-44-45 (14) Mega Millions .. 2-6-8-52-66 (13) x3 Florida LOTTERY

And it is possible there will be a move at some point to establish a Walton County city, or two, south of Choctawhatchee Bay. â€œWe need it to be a city. Yeah, your taxes go up, but there would be protections, and voting, a little more say in the decision process,â€ said Mary Sykes, a newly minted Realtor and employee of Pizza By the Sea in Seagrove Beach. â€œThis area is growing so fast we need a little more control.â€ Not a new sentiment The idea of incorporating is not entirely new for South Walton. Lynn Tipton, the League of Cities representative who will present the nuts and bolts of the issue to interested parties Thursday, recalls making a similar presentation about a decade ago. â€œI hadnâ€™t heard from anybody since until about a week ago,â€ she said. The push to consider incorporation is being spearheaded, again, by the South Walton Community Council, whose leaders say at this point they just want to look at the options. â€œThereâ€™s been lots of discussion about how you do it and why,â€ said SWCC Vice President Blaine Dargavell. â€œWe want people to have accurate information about incorporation so we can all understand the process and better understand the pros and cons.â€ The last time the topic of incorporation came up, the powerful Walton County Taxpayers Association opposed the idea. This time around members have taken a wait-and-see approach. â€œIncorporation would certainly have costs as well as benefits,â€ WCTA President Don Riley said. â€œThe cost/benefit ratio after all aspects have been carefully explored would, in my mind, be the ultimate deciding factor.â€ Hampton Inn jitters The county Planning Commissionâ€™s vote Jan. 14 to recommend approval for a Hampton Inn in Seagrove Beach helped spark the latest incorporation discussion. â€œIncorporation was not even on my radar screen until a few months ago,â€ said Susan Lucas of Santa Rosa Beach. â€œThe Hampton Inn led us to understand the challenges this community faces as change comes.â€ Meg Nelson, who helped organize the last discussion on incorporation, said there are plenty of issues other than the Hampton Inn that South Walton residents ought to consider when they decide whether they want to take the lead in determining the areaâ€™s future. She cited traffic, parking shortages, beach erosion and development around South Waltonâ€™s unique coastal dune lakes as other issues. â€œSouth Walton really feels thereâ€™s a lack of county vision,â€ she said. City, town or village There are 411 cities, towns or villages â€” the state gives each moniker equal recognition â€” in Florida. The village of Estero, in Lee County, stands only a March 17 vote away from becoming the newest. Tipton said cities have been formed over the years for any number of reasons. As an example, she offered Weeki Wachee, the â€œonly city of mermaids,â€ which with five residents is the stateâ€™s smallest. Its handful of Hernando County residents incorporated, in part, so that operators of a mermaid-themed park could control the speed limit on the only road in and out. â€œI tell applicants â€˜when youâ€™re looking at this, youâ€™re comparing apples and oranges if youâ€™re lucky,â€™ â€ Tipton said. â€œBut most of the time itâ€™s fruit salad.â€ If the South Walton incorporation movement advances past the study phase, its leaders must conduct a thorough feasibility study and establish municipal boundaries. There are guidelines for that, too, Tipton said. A new Florida city must be â€œreasonably compact and contiguous,â€ she said. â€œYou canâ€™t create holes in the middle of the donut. It canâ€™t be polka dottedâ€ Tipton said. â€œYou canâ€™t hopscotch six miles and pick back up with it.â€ The biggest challenge would-be city fathers might face is trying to convince residents of 16 established communities to pull together to incorporate. The â€œspecial nature of the communityâ€ of South Walton might also work in favor of the SWCC, said the groupâ€™s president, Kelley Mossburg, a resident of Watersound. A visionaryâ€™s vision Robert Davis founded Seaside, the most famous of 12 communities on 30A, in 1981. Thirty four years later, he envisions a future South Walton divided into two incorporated areas. One would encompass the 12 30A communities and other areas to the west, probably including Sandestin. â€œI think itâ€™s inevitable that eventually we will have a municipality down here,â€ he said. Davis said he anticipates it likely will take a long time for incorporation to happen because he expects staunch resistance to the idea of Walton Countyâ€™s wealthiest areas governing themselves. â€œThe county will be less than thrilled with giving up their cash cow,â€ he said. Davis said he sees a â€œreal logicâ€ in calling a new South Walton city, town or village Seaside, because of the international brand the community has established. However, he conceded that a â€œCity of 30Aâ€ would â€œbring its own brand.â€ NARROW ESCAPE from Page A1 â€œI went to get the animals out, and the smoke was too thick to see,â€ he said. â€œBy the time I got them all out, our oldest dog, who canâ€™t see, had wandered back into the house.â€ Robertson said he ran back in as the flames began to spread through the house. He found the dog and carried it to safety. â€œI just canâ€™t believe how fast it went,â€ he said. Firefighters from Lynn Haven, Springfield and Bay County used ladder hoses and ground attacks to bring the fire under control shortly after 2 p.m. However, the house was a complete loss, officials said. Neighbors called the almost 50-year-old home at the corner of Bookins and Baldwin roads â€œthe Bookinsâ€™ home.â€ Robertson said the house, built solely from pine wood, was owned by his wife. He also said he had previously tinkered with the wiring and believed the fire was caused by an electrical issue. The fire closed a long stretch of Baldwin Road from about 12:30 p.m. through the afternoon. Fire marshals still were investigating the cause of the blaze as of Friday evening. Bay County firefighters also worked three other house fires earlier in the week that damaged the buildings. At 1 a.m. Friday firefighters were called to 6201 W. State 388. At noon Thursday, crews responded to 9602 Indian Bluff Resort Lane. At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, crews fought a house fire at 8711 Laird St. KILLER from Page A1 Trusty left his clothes and medication in the room at the USA Inn and headed toward Tampa as he became the main suspect in the investigation. But at trial, he denied confronting Price over a â€œneighborhood bikeâ€ and killing him. â€œI have no reason to kill nobody,â€ Trusty told jurors. However, two witnesses testified that they saw Trusty shoot Price after a brief skirmish over the bicycle. Tanya Baker and Sawson Owens said they saw Trusty and Price fight before Trusty began to pistolwhip him, causing the firearm to discharge accidentally. Trusty then stood over Price and emptied the .38-caliber revolver into him. Baker and Owens said Trusty got on the bicycle and rode off after the shooting. The bike was found at Trustyâ€™s motherâ€™s home. After he was caught, Trusty threatened Owens and his family if he testified in the case. Trusty still faces charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm. State records show Trusty has a criminal record dating back to his sentence in January 1997 for battery on a detention facility staff member. Trusty also did time for robbery and cocaine-related crimes. He was released from prison in August 2010. He could face more prison time if convicted of the firearm possession charge. Meetings to discuss the incorporation with a representative from the Florida League of Cities have been scheduled for 4 and 7 p.m. Thursday at the Seaside Repertory Theater. WANT TO GO?

Do you think I should stop making contributions to my 401(k) account for a year in order to save up an emergency fund? Beth Dear Beth, Yes, I do. But it shouldnâ€™t take you a year to set aside an emergency fund if youâ€™re debt-free and making decent money at your job. Just make it part of your monthly budget plan, grit your teeth and do it! I recommend that people put off or stop investing until they are debt-free, except for their home, and have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses in place. In some cases, depending on how much debt they have, it could take three or four years to do all this. I know it seems like a long time, but itâ€™s really not in the grand scheme of things. Hereâ€™s the way I look at it. If you have no emergency fund, but youâ€™re contributing to your 401(k), thereâ€™s a good chance youâ€™ll end up cashing out your 401(k) if a large, unexpected expense comes along. When you cash out a 401(k) early, you get hit with a penalty plus your tax rate. Thatâ€™s not a good plan! Thatâ€™s just one of the reasons I tell people to have an emergency fund in place before they start investing! Dave A waste of money? Dear Dave, I have a question about home warranties. Are they a waste of money if you already have a fully-funded emergency fund, with six months of expenses or more set aside? Andy Dear Andy, In my opinion, theyâ€™re a waste of money even if you donâ€™t have that much set aside for emergencies. I recommend an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses to cover the unexpected things that life will throw at you. This amount of cash, sitting in a good money market account with check writing privileges, will give you easy access in the event of a financial emergency. I donâ€™t do extended warranties of any kind, Andy. Theyâ€™re not a good deal. Youâ€™re better off to self-insure against things breaking down, and put what would have been profit and marketing dollars for the extended warranty company in your own pocket!

Now closed for renovations, the resort is receiving a â€œtop to bottomâ€ makeover of its 200 room hotel, spa and conference center. According to Bay County property records, the parcel at 4114 Jan Cooley Drive was purchased by CAI Investments Series 15 for $14 million last spring. The hotel now is being managed by Fairfax, Va.-based Crescent Hotels & Resorts, and officials also announced new management for the golf club earlier this week. KemperSports, an Illinoisbased golf course management company, was chosen to take over operations of the resortâ€™s two championship golf courses, which will remain fully operational during the renovation process. â€œWhile the resort is currently undergoing an extensive renovation, we felt that this was the opportune time to partner with a top management company for the long-term health of our two treasured golf courses,â€ said owner representative Chris Beavor. Kemper Sports manages hundreds of properties, which include golf courses, recreational facilities and lodging and conference centers, across the U.S. Bay Point is home to two 18-hole courses. The Meadows Course was designed in 1973 and remained the only course on the 1,100-acre property until 2005 when the Nicklaus Course was constructed. Designed by Bruce Devlin and Robert von Hagge, it is the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Design in the region, featuring an abundance of water, marsh and sand. â€œBay Point Resort is one of the premier properties in the Southeast,â€ said company CEO Steve Skinner. â€œWe look forward to working with the ownership through the renovation process and re-establishing Bay Point as a must play.â€ Jody Graham, regional operat ing executive for KemperSports, said the company is eager to add Bay Pointâ€™s greens to its lineup of courses. Following the hotel renovations, work will begin on the roughly 130 golf villas on the property as well as the clubhouse. â€œThe new owners are looking to make great improvements,â€ Graham said. â€œEverything is getting a complete face-lift. Itâ€™s going to be spectacular when theyâ€™re done.â€ With more than 100 properties in its repertoire, Graham said KemperSports hopes to use its extensive reach in the golf community to attract new customers from such major U.S. markets as Atlanta. â€œWeâ€™re hoping to host a lot of local events to get Bay Point back to what it was,â€ he said.

When beverage giants Coca-Cola and PepsiCo turned in their quarterly results last week, both blamed the dollar for cutting into their profits. Nasdaq nearing all-time record NEW YORK (AP) â€” The Nasdaq composite rose for an eighth straight day Friday, pushing the index closer to its all-time closing high. The index climbed with the overall stock market after Greece and its creditors in the eurozone reached an agreement on the countryâ€™s request to extend its bailout. The news was seen as positive by investors because it reduces the risk of Greece leaving the euro, a move that has the potential to send shockwaves throughout global financial markets. After gaining almost 7 percent in February, the Nasdaq is now less than 2 percent from its record close of 5,048.62, a benchmark set during the frenzy of the dot-com era in March 2000. On Friday, the Nasdaq added 31.27 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,955.97. Its eight-day win streak matches its longest stretch of gains since February 2014. The technology-heavy index, which tracks the 2,500-plus stocks that are listed on the Nasdaq stock market, has advanced 4.6 percent this year, and is up 16 percent in the last year. Almost half the companies in the index are technology stocks, and the Nasdaq is outperforming both the Dow Jones industrial average and the Standard & Poorâ€™s 500 index this year, as the technology sector is coming back in favor. The S&P 500 is up 2.5 percent since the start of 2015, and has risen 15 percent the past year. NEW YORK (AP) â€” The biggest obstacle for Coca-Cola and Pepsi these days isnâ€™t tied to taste tests, the declining popularity of sugary drinks or even their century-long rivalry. Itâ€™s the surging U.S. dollar. The two soda giants rely on overseas customers for roughly half of their revenue. When they turned in their quarterly results last week, both reported a drop in sales. The strong dollar made all the difference: strip it out and shrinking sales suddenly rise. The dollar has been a source of constant complaint this earnings season. Global corporations from Avon Products to Yum Brands have said their quarterly results would have been much better if it hadnâ€™t been for the rising dollar. For some, the currencyâ€™s strength has meant the difference between a profit and a loss. â€œIt has really hit earnings,â€ said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank. Over the past year, the dollar has climbed 18 percent against major currencies. The surging dollar and plunging oil prices are the main reasons analysts keep cutting their forecasts for corporate profits even though economists expect the U.S. economy to pick up speed Back in October, analysts estimated that companies in the Standard & Poorâ€™s 500 index would post profit growth of 11 percent for the final three months of 2014. That forecast now looks overly optimistic. With only a handful of companies left to report, corporate profits are on track to rise more than 7 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. Forecasts for this year have taken a bigger hit. In December, for example, analysts projected profits would rise 9 percent in the first quarter. Today, they expect them to shrink more than 2 percent over that same period. A strong U.S. dollar might seem like a badge of honor, a reflection of U.S. economic power in the global economy, but for much of Corporate America, itâ€™s bad for business. Almost half of all revenue for companies in the S&P 500 comes from outside the United States, mainly Europe and Asia. So when the dollar rises against the euro, it hurts in two ways: Prices of American-made goods become more expensive to customers in Europe, and goods that move off foreign shelves translate into fewer dollars, showing up as lower revenues and earnings on quarterly financial reports. Take Avon Products, a company that depends on customers in Latin America for almost half of its sales. Last week, the cosmetics company reported its revenue fell 12 percent and adjusted earnings sank 41 percent. Erase the dollarâ€™s move against foreign currencies and the picture looks different. Revenue would have climbed 5 percent, and adjusted earnings would have soared 29 percent. Surging buck smacks U.S. earnings
FROM THE LEFT FROM THE RIGHT By JASON S TANFORD What would it look like if politics stopped at the waterâ€™s edge? It wouldnâ€™t look like the mess John Boehner created by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a session of Congress on March 3. By allowing Netanyahu to stage what is effectively a campaign event in the U.S. Capitol, congressional Republicans not only have damaged our relations with Israel but threatened our diplomatic negotiations with Iran. Even for Boehner, who gets a gold star when he doesnâ€™t let the government shut down, this is a big screw-up. Itâ€™s one thing to turn an attack on the U.S. into a partisan drinking word â€” BENGHAZI!! â€” but we can all agree Israel is an important ally, and Iran should never have a nuclear bomb. By trying to one-up Obama, Boehner exposed how much heâ€™s willing to put political gamesmanship ahead of adult statesmanship. With about two weeks before Netanyahuâ€™s speech, itâ€™s getting tense: Joe Biden made up an excuse about a prearranged trip to a country to be named later so it doesnâ€™t look like heâ€™s taking sides in Israelâ€™s upcoming elections. Haaretz, the leading English-language source for news about Israel, wrote that the Boehner-Netanyahu power play is â€œsabotaging Israelâ€™s most precious asset,â€ that is, close relations with the United States. The U.S. ambassador has warned Israeli officials that, â€œUltimately, this will have a priceâ€ if Netanyahu uses the U.S. Capitol as a stage to criticize ongoing U.S.-led diplomatic negotiations. And though everyone would like this to be about a big partisan slap fight in D.C., the real threat isnâ€™t to our relationship with Israel. This is election-year posturing by Netanyahu. He needs votes, and then heâ€™ll need foreign aid. Heâ€™ll get over it. The real problem is that by allowing himself to be used as a pawn by Obamaâ€™s political enemies, Netanyahu is helping Iran. â€œUnknowingly, Netanyahu has become the Iraniansâ€™ secret weapon. If he didnâ€™t exist, the Iranians would have to invent him. Destroying the strategic alliance with America would be a real existential threat to Israel, but so far, heâ€™s much closer to leaving scorched earth in Washington than he is to stopping Iranâ€™s centrifuges. In this situation, Iranian leaders donâ€™t have to do a thing but sit in front of the television, eat popcorn and laugh,â€ Barak Ravid in Haaretz recently wrote. Oh yeah. Iran. March is not just when Israelis go to the polls but the next deadline in the diplomatic efforts to keep Iran from building a nuclear bomb. Right now, the U.S. is leading six countries in seeking a negotiated settlement with Iran that would prevent them from becoming a member of the nuclear club. This effort, which began under George W. Bush, has kept Iranâ€™s nuclear program frozen in place for years. These countries â€” Russia, China, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and the U.S. â€” are using a combination of sanctions, inspections, monitoring and the ever-present threat of having drones move into the neighborhood to pressure Iran into giving up their capacity to enrich uranium. There are signs we could be getting close to a deal. But thatâ€™s not good enough for those who would oppose breathing if Obama called for clean air. To be fair, conservatives think the only way to make their way in the world is first threatening and then using force. Itâ€™s the whole â€œpeace through strengthâ€ thing they go on about. Or they just want to forget the whole peace thing and go ahead and bomb Iran. What they havenâ€™t said is how this ends if we do it their way. We canâ€™t bomb them into forgetting how to build a nuclear bomb. Should we disengage from diplomacy and just glare at them? Do we go to war and then, what, endlessly prop up a moderate government? The only way to keep Iran from getting the bomb is to negotiate it away. Thatâ€™s a goal we should all be able to get behind, but by infecting diplomacy with partisanship, congressional Republicans are giving Iranians an excuse to walk away from the table which is exactly why politics should stop at the waterâ€™s edge. United we stand, divided we grandstand. Boehner and Netanyahu are helping Iran By MICHELLE MALKIN At the White House Summit on Extremism That Shall Remain Unspecified Because Violent Followers Belonging To Unnamed Extremist Movement Might Take Extreme Offense And Act Extremely, the feds are touting a groundbreaking new strategy to fight terrorists. Just kidding. Itâ€™s actually the same old futile strategy that big-government liberals use to cure everything: moâ€™ money, moâ€™ money, moâ€™ money. Instead of killing jihadists, keeping them off our soil, locking up their poisonous spiritual agitators and shutting off their terror-funding pipelines, President Obama called on America and the world to â€œinvestâ€ in unnamed immigrant â€œcommunitiesâ€ vulnerable to unnamed extremism. Some of the most generous welfare states on the planet have suffered horrific jihad attacks this year. Liberal Denmarkâ€™s soft-on-jihad rehab program has been a disaster. But that hasnâ€™t stopped State Department spokes-babbler Marie Harf from mewling incessantly about â€œcombating povertyâ€ to combat ISIS. Screw that. Muslim jihadists chopped off the heads of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya this weekend. Muslim jihadists launched deadly shooting sprees in Copenhagen at a cartoonists free-speech event and a synagogue. Muslim jihadists murdered Jews at a kosher deli in Paris and slaughtered the staff of Charlie Hebdo over their drawings. Muslim jihadists caged and burned alive Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh. Muslim jihadists threw gays off of buildings in Iraq. Muslim jihadists beheaded journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, humanitarian workers Alan Henning and Peter Kassig, and Japanese nationals Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto Jogo. Muslim jihadists have kidnapped and slaughtered thousands of innocent men, women and children in Nigeria. The solution, the Obama administration says, is a super-sized community organizing campaign. Itâ€™s Jobs for Jihad Delinquents! Politically correct public officials from L.A., Boston and Minnesota are holding seminars on their â€œoutreachâ€ efforts to disaffected yoots as shining counterterrorism models. In Minneapolis, where al-Shabaab recruiters have metastasized, the U.S. attorney has bought into Muslim grievance-mongersâ€™ complaints that â€œimmigrant youngsters remain marginalized, without access to adequate education, employment and other opportunities.â€ What a bloody crock. States like Minnesota and Maine have bent over backward to resettle thousands upon thousands of Somali refugees â€” putting their demands over the safety and well-being of native-born citizens and taxpayers struggling to make ends meet. The persistent leftwing myth of the poor, oppressed jihadist is absolute madness. How many times do we have to remind the clueless kumbaya crowd that al-Qaida mastermind Ayman al-Zawahiri had a medical degree, as did Hamas bigwig Abdel al-Rantisi and the seven upper-crust doctors who helped plan the 2007 London/Glasgow bombings? Or that al-Qaida scientist Aafia Siddiqui studied microbiology at MIT and did graduate work in neurology at Brandeis. Terror architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed earned a mechanical engineering degree at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. 9/11 lead hijacker Mohamed Atta majored in urban planning at a German technical university. The â€œroot causeâ€ of their evildoing is not a lack of employment, education, community centers, iftar dinners at the White House or publicly funded â€œopportunities.â€ They donâ€™t want jobs. They want blood. Revenge. Islamist dominance. Extermination of Jews, gays, Coptic Christians, Christian aid workers, cartoonists, journalists, apostates and infidels of all shapes and sizes. The M****m j*******s are not victims of Islamophobic intolerance and Western callousness. We are the victims of our own leadersâ€™ bleeding-heart overindulgence and reckless refusal to deal with reality.

HealthCare.govâ€™s new woes: Wrong tax info sent out WASHINGTON (AP) â€” In a new setback for the health care law and the people itâ€™s supposed to help, the government said Friday it made a tax-reporting error thatâ€™s fouling up the filings of almost a million Americans. After a successful sign-up season, the latest goof could signal new problems with the complex links between President Barack Obamaâ€™s health care overhaul and the nationâ€™s income tax system. Officials said the government sent the wrong tax information to about 800,000 HealthCare.gov customers, and they are asking those affected to delay filing their 2014 returns. The issue involves a new government form called a 1095-A, which is like a W-2 form for health care for people who got subsidized private coverage under Obamaâ€™s law. People can find out whether they are affected by logging in to their accounts at HealthCare.gov , where they should find a message indicating whether they were affected or not. They also can check by phoning the federal customer service center at 800-318-2596. HealthCare.gov said in a blog post that the mistake happened when information on this yearâ€™s premiums was substituted for what should been 2014 numbers. The website had a technology meltdown when it was launched in 2013, but seemed to have overcome its problems this enrollment season. â€œItâ€™s just another black mark on the administrationâ€™s handling of the health care act,â€ said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington. â€œThey were hoping for a clean season.â€ â€œFor many of these impacted taxpayers, the tax refund could be the single largest financial payout of the year,â€ said Mark Ciaramitaro, H&R Blockâ€™s vice president for health care. Many people due a refund file well before the April 15 deadline. â€œThey are being told to wait,â€ he added, â€œfurther delaying access to their tax refund.â€ On another matter, the administration also announced a special sign-up extension for uninsured people who would face the health care lawâ€™s tax penalties for the first time this year. Several million households could benefit from that grace period, which had been sought by Democratic lawmakers. Uninsured people who go to file their taxes and learn they are facing a penalty will have between March 15 and April 30 to sign up through HealthCare.gov . Otherwise, they would not have had an opportunity until the fall. Records fall, ferries freeze amid arctic cold in eastern U.S. The Associated Press Arctic air plunged the eastern half of the United States into a deep freeze â€” as far south as Alabama and Georgia â€” and broke records Friday. The cold snap followed snow and ice storms earlier in the week, and weather forecasters warned more sleet and freezing rain are possible in the coming days. Hereâ€™s a look at the latest weather and the effect it is having around the country: Siberian Express? â€œPolar vortexâ€ is so last year. Some forecasters are calling the record-setting bout of icy air the â€œSiberian Expressâ€ because winds coming from Russia are traveling over the Arctic Circle and pushing into Canada and the United States. Despite being the buzz word of winter 2014, the polar vortex is a term that has been used for decades in meteorology. It is a pocket of very cold air that typically swirls around the North Pole. Last year was displaced by a high pressure system that traveled far north into the Pacific Ocean, sending the center of the vortex into southern Canada. Ferries frozen out A Boston-bound com muter ferry carrying more than 100 passengers had trouble steering in the ice and had to be towed to port. The ferry Massachusetts departed Hingham about 8:30 a.m. Friday right behind an ice breaker, said Alison Nolan, an official with Boston Harbor Cruises. After the ferry went off course, the ice breaker towed it to Boston. The Massachusetts arrived about 10 a.m., about 45 minutes later than normal. No one was hurt and the boat was not damaged. Ferry service was canceled elsewhere in the Northeast. The Cape MayLewes Ferry, which connects Delaware and New Jersey, halted operations because of ice and wind. Ferries on New Yorkâ€™s East River also were canceled. Record-breaking cold Bitter cold temperatures have shattered decades-old records from Cincinnati to Washington to New York. The National Weather Service said the low Friday got down to 6 degrees at Reagan National Airport, just across the Potomac River from Washington. At Baltimoreâ€™s airport, the temperature dipped to a record low 2 degrees. In western Pennsylvania, temperatures dipped to minus 18 in New Castle, minus 15 in Butler and 6 below zero in Pittsburgh â€” all records. Records also were set at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey (1 degree); Trenton, N.J. (zero degrees); New Yorkâ€™s Central Park (2 degrees); and Cincinnati (12 degrees below zero). â€˜Frozenâ€™ Niagara Falls drawing tourists NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) â€” An icy Niagara Falls drew a small but hardy stream of tourists Friday intent on witnessing the extraordinary crystalline spectacle, if only long enough to click some photos. Weeks of sustained cold had visitors marveling from behind scarves and viewfinders at the waterfallsâ€™ glacial buildup and mist-encased trees and lampposts that looked as though they had been sculpted from snow. â€œI come here every winter but this is the most magnificent,â€ said Heather Ferrara of nearby Tonawanda, who, with her husband, Joe, braved a morning temperature of minus 7 that felt even colder near the roiling shore. At Prospect Point, the brink of the American Falls faded in and out of a fog as if the falls were exhaling. â€œThe mist is more ice pellets,â€ said Tony Lombardi of Mylan, Ohio, who shed his gloves to take photos while his wife, Amy, warmed up in their van. The Mylan, Ohio, couple decided to celebrate their 22nd anniversary at Niagara Falls after seeing the display on television. Itâ€™s a must-see, Lombardi said, squinting against the stinging spray, â€œin short bursts, for sure.â€ Although sections of the three waterfalls that make up the natural attraction appear to have frozen in place, the Niagara River continues to flow over the precipice to the Arcticlike buildup below. The scene has become a tourist magnet for the second straight year after several relatively mild winters. â€œIt takes on a whole different atmosphere,â€ said Heather MaitlandSchmidt of North Tonawanda, who aimed a camera at an ice-encrusted bridge that would have fit in Disneyâ€™s â€œFrozenâ€ movie. â€œItâ€™s a winter wonderland.â€ Forecasters say there will be plenty of time to witness the sight, with nothing resembling a warmup on the horizon. â€œIf you can, you have to see this,â€ Joe Ferrara said as he and his wife headed back to their car. â€œBut dress warm!â€ Heather Ferrara warned. The couple wasnâ€™t done with nature yet. They were headed to Letchworth State Park, about 80 miles away in Castile, to take in a 50-foot high â€œice volcanoâ€ that has formed around a geyser. Multiple suicide blasts in Libya kill at least 45 TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) â€” Multiple suicide car bomb ings struck an eastern Libyan town, killing at least 45 people on Friday not far from a main base of the Islamic State groupâ€™s Libyan offshoot. The group claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it came in retaliation for recent Egyp tian airstrikes that avenged the beheading of 21 Christian hostages by Libyan Islamic State militants. The massive bombings rocked the town of Qubba, which is under control of the countryâ€™s internationally recognized government and about 19 miles from Darna â€” a stronghold of Libyaâ€™s Islamic State branch. In a statement posted on social networking sites, the group said two of the â€œCaliphateâ€™s knightsâ€ carried out the bombings, targeting what they described as a Libyan army operations room. The deadliest bombing was carried by an attacker who rammed an explosivespacked ambulance into a gas station where motorists were lined up, army spokesman Mohammed Hegazi said. â€œImagine a car packed with a large amount of explosives striking a gas station; the explosion was huge and many of the injured are in very bad shape while the victimsâ€™ bodies were torn into pieces,â€ Hegazi said. Two other bombers detonated vehicles next to the house of the parliament speaker and the nearby security headquarters in Qubba. â€œThey wanted to hit two birds with one stone,â€ Hegazi said. He said the death toll was expected to rise. Two security officials said at least 45 people were killed. Government Spokesman Mohammed Bazaza put the death toll at 42. The Islamic State group, however, claimed there were only two suicide bomb ings; pictures posted by the group showed two masked suicide bombers dressed in black before the attacks. The discrepancy in the number of bombings could not be immediately reconciled. The elected Libyan government and parliament announced a seven-day mourning period.

Scout was certified as a â€œscent-specific search dogâ€ Wednesday during the Bay County Sheriffâ€™s Office K-9 search and rescue seminar week. The seminar takes place at BCSOâ€™s Wilderness Camp once a year, with about 25 dogs this year attempting to gain the designation. Now, one of Bay Countyâ€™s nine certified search and rescue dogs, Scout and her handler can be called on to lend a snout whenever some one is reported as a missing person in the county. The designation for such a young pup and handler is rare because most dogs take between eight months and two years to complete the training certification, S ATURDAY February 21, 2015 Prison chief seeks to revamp health care Scoutâ€™s honor The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE â€” Flor ida Department of Cor rections Secretary Julie Jones announced Friday she intends to rebid contracts worth about $1.4 billion with private companies to provide health-care services to the stateâ€™s 100,000 inmates. Jonesâ€™ announcement came amid increased scru tiny of Floridaâ€™s prison sys tem, the third-largest in the country, after reports of guards abusing inmates, a rising number of unex plained inmate deaths and lawsuits from investigators who claim they were retali ated against after exposing wrongdoing. Lawmakers have recently focused on prob lems with medical services provided to inmates by Wexford Health Sources and Corizon Health. The for-profit companies took over prison health care almost two years ago after a drawn-out court battle over outsourcing ordered by the Legislature in 2011.

L ast call on P.C. alcohol vote T uesday By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh email@example.com PANAMA CITY â€” Panama City commissioners on Tuesday will consider the second and final read ing of an ordinance that would end the sale of alcohol at 4 a.m. daily year-round. At its last meeting, the commis sion voted 3-2 to deny an ordinance that would, during March, adjust that time to 2 a.m., matching Bay County and Panama City Beach ordinances. But Commissioners Mike Nich ols, John Kady and Kenneth Brown said Panama City would not have a problem with spring breakers driv ing drunk to continue drinking on the other side of the bridge, saying the breakers were more likely to go back to their hotels or take a safe mode of transportation. None of those three com missioners are changing their positions. â€œMy view is the same â€” people are going to do what theyâ€™re going to do. If theyâ€™re going to do that we can make it safe,â€ Brown said, and then gave examples of cabs and shuttles.â€ Iâ€™m trying to bring more funds to Panama City.â€ â€œPanama City doesnâ€™t have a problem,â€ Nichols said. â€œA lot of them are going to walk back to their condominiums. Theyâ€™re going to hang out with people on the beach.â€ Mayor Greg Brudnicki and Commissioner Billy Rader also are not changing their votes, cit ing the plan from Sheriff Frank McKeithen. â€œI donâ€™t want something terrible to happen, a kid out at 3 a.m. some where in the city limits,â€ Rader said. â€œGod forbid something bad would happen.â€ â€œI feel we could do that for one month,â€ Brudnicki said of the 2 a.m. alcohol shut off time. â€œI would rather do that than create entrap ment, than have people sitting in the No Name parking lot.â€ City Attorney Nevin Zimmer man recommended that the city approve the 4 a.m. time to clear up ambiguity within the cityâ€™s code and break the â€œdaisy chainâ€ link ing the city to other government ordinances. Zimmerman said the city is not liable for any injuries incurred by potential drunken driving because the 4 a.m. time would be a planning level decision. Nichols offered that if a prob lem arises during Spring Break, he would be one of the first to call for a special meeting to stop alcohol sales at 2 a.m. â€œIf it becomes a major problem,â€ Nichols said. â€œI donâ€™t see it.â€ SEE SC OUT | B2 Groups like Boston and others played good music, but itâ€™s no excuse for P.C. to just stay with old groups and country music.

Page B2 | The News Herald | Saturday, February 21, 2015 WEATHER over as head of the department last month. Under the current agreements, Wexford is being paid $48 million a year until Dec. 20, 2017, to provide health services to about 15,000 inmates at nine prisons in South Florida. Corizon, which provides health care to more than 74,000 inmates in North and Central Florida as well as part of South Florida, receives $229 million per year. The Corizon contract was set to expire on June 30, 2018. Rebidding the contracts is expected to drive up costs because the department will want more services. â€œWe are anticipating a cost increase. But weâ€™re also adding electronic health records, liqui dated damages and other enhance ments to the contract that will help us in the delivery of health care services,â€ department spokesman McKinley Lewis said. Evers sees problems during tour Senate Criminal Justice Chair man Greg Evers ordered Jones to redo the current contracts after he visited several prisons in his Panhandle district and found they were understaffed by doctors and nurses, a common complaint in other states where Tennesseebased Corizon does business. Staffing was one of a variety of issues Jones outlined in a news release Friday announcing her intention to open a contracting process known as an invitation to negotiate â€œprior to the beginning of 2016.â€ Jones is seeking â€œenhanced elementsâ€ to the current con tracts that will include â€œthe ability to ensure that appropriate staffing is provided by our contractors that enables a proper mix of admin istrative and institutional-level direct care, the presence of medi cal staff who possess the proper skills and qualifications to provide quality care to our inmate popu lation and clinical oversight and supervision.â€ Jones wants the contractors to perform internal audits of staffing levels, which also will be monitored by the state Correctional Medical Authority and the departmentâ€™s health-services staff. She also intends to demand higher penalties for the companies if they fail to meet minimum staff ing or standard-of-care levels. In addition, the secretary is asking companies to use electronic health records â€œto sup port decision making and improve provision of comprehensive medi cal, dental and mental health ser vices while ensuring continuity of care,â€ she said. Last year, 346 of the stateâ€™s 100,000-plus inmates died behind bars. More than half of those deaths â€”176 â€”were initially unclassified, meaning state inves tigators had no immediate expla nation for the causes of death. According to the Department of Corrections website, 146 inmates died due to heart attacks, cancer, gastrointestinal diseases or other medical problems. â€œI am confident in the ability of this department to meet the health care needs of our inmate popula tion through a partnership with private health care providers. Through this procurement process, the department will take steps toward being better able to ensure that the health care ser vices required to be delivered to our inmate population are done so in a professional, expeditious and quality fashion,â€ Jones said in the news release. Evers was cautiously optimistic about Jonesâ€™ announcement. â€œIn the past year since the Flor ida correctional health care has become fully privatized, inmatesâ€™ deaths have increased a stagger ing 10 percent. Iâ€™m encouraged to see that FDOC is responding to this health care crisis in our health care system. Itâ€™s been a terrible deal for the Florida taxpayers. Floridians deserve better,â€ Evers, R-Baker, said. â€œIt is my hope and expectation that this time FDOC will rebid these contracts in an open and transparent process that includes proper accountability and oversight. We will be watching this process very closely to make sure that FDOC is not giving us whipped cream and telling us itâ€™s ice cream.â€ Both companies have pledged to continue to provide services throughout the rebidding process. â€œWe are pleased to see Secre tary Jones doing exactly what she promised to do when she took over leadership of the Department of Corrections â€”making whatever changes are necessary to ensure the best outcomes for the state, its taxpayers, and its inmate population. â€œThis new procurement pro cess will allow additional flex ibility and increased cooperation between the state of Florida and its partners, and we believe we are well-positioned to continue as the stateâ€™s principal correctional health provider,â€ Corizon Health Chief Executive Officer Woodrow Myers Jr., said in a statement issued Friday. Corizon, which employs 1,700 workers in Florida, also is â€œproud of the improvements weâ€™ve made in recent months, for instance enhancing reporting healthcare metrics and adding more staff at no additional cost to the state,â€ Myers wrote. Wexford President Dan Conn said in a statement that his Pitts burgh-based company is commit ted to working with Jones. â€œWe are confident Wexford Health has been meeting the many requirements of our con tract with the State of Florida and know the overwhelming majority of concerns expressed by the sec retary and legislators donâ€™t apply to the inmates under our care in Florida,â€ Conn wrote. â€œThe opportunity to rebid the contract will give us a chance to take Florida prison health care to the next level and implement additional cost-saving clinical pro grams not possible under the cur rent contract, such as discounted drug pricing programs and elec tronic health records. Wexford Health looks forward to continuing our partnership with the Depart ment of Corrections now and into the future.â€ Court battle over health care The rebidding of the contracts is the latest turn in Floridaâ€™s decades-long struggle with inmate health care. In the mid 1970s, lawyers launched a nearly 20-year court battle, known as Costello v. Wain wright, over prisonersâ€™ health care, resulting in the appointment of a special master and nearly a decade of federal-court oversight of health services in the Depart ment of Corrections. The Correctional Medical Authority was created in 1986 as part of the settlement in the Costello case. The stateâ€™s prison health system stayed under fed eral oversight until 1993, when a judge decided that the federal gov ernment could relinquish its role as long as Florida remained com mitted to using monitors, like the authority, to ensure that prisonersâ€™ rights were not being violated. In the midst of deciding to privatize prison health care in 2011, lawmakers effectively shut tered the authority by eliminating its $717,000 budget. That same year, Gov. Rick Scott vetoed a measure that would have eliminated the agency, calling it a â€œvaluable layer of oversight.â€ The next year, House and Sen ate leaders allocated $580,000 to revive the agency, shrunk from 12 workers to six with an oversight board of seven governor-appointed members. Critics of the revived authority say the agency no longer has the power it held when U.S. District Judge Susan Black agreed to end federal oversight. Disappointment in the current health-care contracts began not long after the privatization was fully implemented in late 2013. Less than four months before Scott, who pushed for the priva tization, was re-elected last year, former Corrections Secretary Michael Crews quietly agreed to pay Wexford and Corizon another $3.2 million to stay on the job for another year. Two months after he inked the contract amendments, Crews threatened to stop payments to Corizon, saying the company failed to follow through after audits revealed shortcomings in multiple areas, including medical care, nursing and staffing. The threat of another Costellolike class action lawsuit and fed eral oversight is an additional incentive for lawmakers to try to rectify prison health-care issues, which one lawyer who represented the inmates said are worse now than when the case was settled. â€œOnce those bids come in, if the private health care providers canâ€™t do it at a cost we can afford, then it may be cheaper because of the inadequate health care the inmates are receiving. The state may have to look at taking it back over,â€ Evers said.

He was away on duty as a member of a National Guard when he arrived home on weekend leave to find the mixed-breed Scout waiting on him. His mom saw an ad for puppies in a local publication. â€œThey say you donâ€™t choose puppies, they choose you,â€ he said. Agosto had been inter ested in being a K-9 handler in the military for some time, and Scout turned out to be a natural scent tracker. â€œItâ€™s all a game to them,â€ Agosto said. â€œShe had the tracking instincts and really wanted to play.â€ During the seminar, the K-9s vying for certification encountered three different scenarios. The one in which Scout excelled was â€œscentspecificâ€ tracking. Since each person has their own distinct scent, the dogs are presented with an article of clothing or even a footprint on the ground. The dog is then tasked with tracking that scent to the personâ€™s location. The second is a general â€œarea searchâ€ where the dogs are trained to find a general scent of humans on the wind and set out to make a more direct find. The third is where dogs are trained to specifically detect the scent of human remains. All of the handlers and trainers volunteer their time, and, for a chance to become certified, they also pay between $300 and $350. Frye said some of the han dlers are compelled by expe riencing the loss of a loved one themselves, and others have a natural desire to bring answers to those with a miss ing loved one. â€œWe do it because it needs to be done,â€ Frye said. â€œWe canâ€™t stand the thought of someone remaining missing.â€ S C OUT from Page B1 Senate Criminal Justice Chairman Greg Evers ordered Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie Jones to redo the current contracts after he visited several prisons in his Panhandle district and found they were understaffed by doctors and nurses, a common complaint in other states where Tennessee-based Corizon does business.

Itâ€™s here â€” amid mobile homes, cow pastures and cotton fields near the Alabama-Florida line â€” that a small, Alabama-based Indian tribe wants to expand its gambling operations into the Sun shine State. Rebuffed so far by Gov. Rick Scott, the Poarch Creek Band of Indians is suggesting it might adopt a hardball negotiating stance: Let us offer gambling in a few Florida locations, or we could consider growing and selling mar ijuana on our property. The prospect of selling pot is just one â€œwhat ifâ€ scenario that tribal leaders say is possible. But what the Poarch want now is for Scott and the Republicancontrolled Legislature to take them seriously and approve a compact with the tribe that would allow a casino. â€œWe are entitled to negotiate a compact with the state,â€ said Stephanie Bryan, chairwoman of the Poarch tribal council. â€œWe have 642 tribal members living throughout the state of Florida. We are asking Gov. Scott to acknowledge we are a federally recognized tribe.â€ The tribe stakes its claim to negotiate a far-reaching gambling deal on a 1-acre tract of land it owns in Escambia County. Itâ€™s just a few miles from a casino oper ated by the tribe near the state line in Atmore, Ala. Tribal officials contend that the land has been in tribal ownership long enough to trigger rights guaranteed by federal law. Rejecting a deal with the tribe could spark a lawsuit. It also could prompt the tribe to consider its options, such as whether to sell marijuana on its Florida property. The U.S. Department of Justice in December said tribes could grow and sell marijuana on their lands, as long as they follow the same federal conditions laid out for states that have legalized the drug. So far, many tribes say theyâ€™re inclined to avoid marijuana sales, amid concerns over alcoholism, poverty, crime and joblessness on tribal lands. Bryan stressed that any deci sion of that magnitude would need tribal council approval. She said what the tribe wants is a â€œseat at the tableâ€ as the debate over gambling continues. â€œWe consider ourselves good neighbors, good natives,â€ Bryan said. Recently the tribe started building a warehouse on the land, but so far the actions have garnered a shrug from the Scott administration. Although the governorâ€™s office met twice with tribal officials last year, a spokesman for Scott said recently the governor will not negotiate with the tribe.

Certainly whatever hap pened started elsewhere,â€ Brown said. It stands to reason who ever did leave the body on the side of the road was traveling away from Crestview toward Nicev ille or Fort Walton Beach, Brown said. Passers-by discovered the body of Williams, who had just graduated from Crestview High School, shortly after 7:30 a.m. If the length of time Williamsâ€™ body lay where it was found has been determined, that informa tion has not yet been made public. â€œThat morning it was foggy, foggy, foggy,â€ Brown said. â€œThe body wasnâ€™t found until the fog broke.â€ Evidence collected at the scene has been sent to the FDLE laboratory for processing, Brown said, but thereâ€™s no way to know when it will be returned. â€œFDLE works at their own pace,â€ he said. â€œTheyâ€™ve told us theyâ€™ve given us a rush on it.â€ In the meantime, Brown said investigators continue to receive and follow up on leads. He said he believes about 100 people have been interviewed in the case thus far. â€œWe encourage the pub lic to come forward and give us information that could point us in the right direction,â€ Brown said. â€œIâ€™m confident someone out there knows exactly what happened.â€ Team catches 700-pound shark The Daily News It took 60 people to drag Joey Polkâ€™s latest catch from the end of the Navarre Beach Fishing Pier to the shore. But Thursdayâ€™s 700-pound mako shark wasnâ€™t even Polkâ€™s biggest catch of the past year. That honor would go to the 805-pound mako he and other members of Team True Blue landed last April. Polk, who lives in Milton, and other team members â€” cousins Ear nie Polk and Kenny Peterson â€” love catching big sharks. And while theyâ€™ll tell you a little bit about how itâ€™s done, donâ€™t expect any big secrets to be revealed. â€œThereâ€™s absolutely a secret to catching this monster fish, and thatâ€™s just one Iâ€™ll never tell,â€ Polk said. â€œOur team has just come together and perfected what we do,â€ he added. â€œWeâ€™ve researched our beach. We know our sharks. Weâ€™ve charted our waters.â€ They tag and release almost all the sharks they catch for a research lab based at Florida Atlantic Univer sity in Boca Raton. Thursdayâ€™s shark was different. His kids wanted shark for dinner. And scientists wanted a closer look at a large mako caught so close to shore. â€œThis is a big stepping stone for them,â€ Polk said. The shark was winched onto a flatbed tow truck on the beach, driven to Milton and stored in a large â€œfish coffin,â€ a cooler bag packed with ice. Scientists drove 10 hours over night to harvest the sharkâ€™s back bone, the contents of its stomach and some of its organs. The animal, which measured 10 feet, 9 inches, was a female. She wasnâ€™t pregnant and recently had some small fish for dinner. â€œIt was just a real fat fish,â€ Polk said. After scientists left Friday after noon, Team True Blue went to work on the rest of the animal. â€œWe just got started and weâ€™ve got more meat than we know where to put it,â€ said Polk, laughing. Investigators have determined 18-year-old Mark Anthony Williamsâ€™ body had been dumped where it was found Jan. 21 near the wood line off the southbound lanes of State Road 85 near Duke Field. Passers-by discovered the body shortly after 7:30 a.m. Special to the News Herald Crowds gathered Thursday night to watch Team True Blue haul in a 700-pound mako shark off Navarre Beach. WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Demo cratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Friday denied that she considered offering her support for a Florida medical marijuana ballot initia tive in exchange for a prominent donor stopping his public criti cism of her. â€œItâ€™s outrageous to suggest that I would ever cut a deal,â€ the Florida congresswoman said in an interview with The Associated Press. Wasserman Schultz said she had hoped to discuss ways of improving the language of a future ballot initiative but never sought to muzzle Florida attorney John Morgan, who spent nearly $5 million to champion the issue. â€œItâ€™s unfortunate that Johnâ€™s passion gets the best of him some times, letâ€™s put it that way. But just because of his tendency to do that, that doesnâ€™t mean I would be moti vated to change my position to get him to stop,â€ she said. Asked about the criticism, she said, â€œIâ€™m not going to stoop to that level.â€ Politico reported this week on emails and text messages released by Morgan, a top fund raiser for President Barack Obama, appearing to show Was serman Schultzâ€™s staff suggesting she would alter her position on the issue if Morgan would retract his criticism. It was the latest rift in a longrunning squabble between the powerful congresswoman and party chair and a top fundraiser for Democratic presidential candi dates. Morgan has said he plans to support Hillary Rodham Clintonâ€™s presidential campaign. Morgan bankrolled the initia tive in part because of the suffer ing of his quadriplegic brother and said he felt betrayed by the con gresswoman when she announced her opposition. Nearly 58 percent of the elec torate supported the amendment last year, but it fell short of a threefifths majority needed to pass a constitutional amendment in Florida. Supporters hope to pass legislation in the state but may push for a similar ballot measure in 2016. Morgan said in an interview that Wasserman Schultzâ€™s opposi tion puts her on the wrong side of the issue. â€œI actually feel sorry for her. Youâ€™re watching some body freefall without a parachute in front of the whole world,â€ he said in a phone interview from Hawaii. Rep. Wasserman Shultz denies making deal with do nor
LOCA L & STATE Saturday, February 21, 2015 | The News Herald | Page B5 Staff and wire reports PANAMA CITY BEACH BCSO searches for burglary suspect A man suspected of an early February burglary now is being sought in connection with several more burglaries and peeping into the home of one victim, the Bay County Sheriffâ€™s Office announced Friday.

TYNDALL AFB Controlled burn to take place today The 325th Civil Engineer Squadron Natural Resources Flight is scheduled to conduct a controlled burn on Tyndall Air Force Base between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. today.

ORLANDO Whale dies at Sea World A beluga whale has died at SeaWorld Orlando after being treated for an infection associated with a fractured jaw. Sea World officials said Friday that the beluga whale Nanuq died Thursday. The cause of death wonâ€™t be known until a post-mortem examination, but the beluga whale had been under treatment for an infection. Nanuqâ€™s jaw was fractured during an encounter with two other whales that were part of a compatible social group. Nanuq was estimated to be 31 or 32 years old and was on loan to SeaWorld from the Vancouver Aquarium. COCONUT CREEK Police dog fired after biting 2 people A police dog is being kicked off the force after biting a doughnut shop worker and an officer in separate incidents. Officials said 4-yearold Renzo had been with the Coconut Creek Police Department for more than a year. The Belgian Malinois bit an officer in November while tracking a suspect. Last week, he burst out of a patrol car and bit a Dunkinâ€™ Donuts worker in the calf. Renzo and Officer Carl DiBlasi went to the doughnut shop Feb. 11 to meet a police sergeant. The sergeant approached the patrol car and began to pet Renzo. The dog lunged at her and DiBlasi.

Gi ve yo ur se lf a FI GH TI NG chanc e only a third-grade education, Smiley graduated with hon ors from Port St. Joe High School. He earned a bach elorâ€™s degree in account ing and government from Florida State University, a masterâ€™s in business admin istration from the University of West Florida and a juris doctorate from Florida State University College of Law. He also became a certified public accountant. â€œIâ€™m a big believer in (that) it doesnâ€™t make a dif ference where you come from, you have the opportu nity to be the highest,â€ said Smiley, admitting that oppo sition may arise. â€œYou have to work hard.â€ Working in the arena Smiley handles 200 to 300 cases per month as a fel ony and criminal judge in the 14th Judicial Circuit, which covers Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson and Wash ington counties. He always is mindful that a personâ€™s life is in his lawguided hand. â€œIn each case, thereâ€™s a human being, a person,â€ Smiley said. â€œI think itâ€™s very important for everyone to feel like the process is fair. And thatâ€™s what I try to do.â€ When asked if the recent shootings of unarmed black males caused him to reevaluate his position as an African-American judge, Smiley replied that his job is to ensure the process of jus tice is fair and that he does not hesitate to apply the law. Each citizen has a respon sibility to be held accountable for the decisions he or she makes, he said. â€œWhatever your job is, do it the best that you can do it, do it in an honorable way,â€ Smiley said later in the interview, unrelated to the shootings. â€œItâ€™s not unusual for young people to be presented with a choice â€” youâ€™re going to choose path A or path B,â€ he said. All choices have conse quences, and the bad choice isolates the individual. When you make the right choices and follow the tenets of goal-setting, working hard, believing in yourself, he said, someone will help you obtain the resources you need to help meet your goal. â€œThere may be disap pointments and failures and people that tell you you canâ€™t do it,â€ he added. However, â€œYour environment is a cir cumstance and you donâ€™t have to allow your circum stance be the determinant of where you go in life. Thatâ€™s the beauty about it.â€ â€˜This is homeâ€™ The best part of being a judge is helping others, according to Smiley. And there is no place he would rather serve than in the 14th Judicial Circuit. â€œThis is home for me,â€ Smiley said. â€œI think I was duty-bound to remain in this area to make an impact.â€ In addition to the decades of service in the area as an attorney, public defender, professor and judge, Smiley has earned several special community-based honors and awards, including Bay County Educators Outstand ing Leadership Award, Advi sory Committee for Urban Revitalization Equityâ€™s Dis tinguished Government Ser vice Award and Omega Psi Phi fraternity Citizen of the Year Award. He also has received a number of other special honors, including the Legal Services of North Florida Crump-Park Thurgood Mar shall Award. â€œI like being in the arena of justice to ensure the process is fair,â€ Smiley concluded. â€œAt the end of the day, I hope we (judges) accomplish that task.â€ JUDGE from Page B1 S TATE & L OCA L Briefs

Accept and believe the information. You can do this without passing judgment, which makes you a superior human, by the way. CANCER (June 22-July 22): First, write down a few of your intentions. Then start talking about the dreams you want to come true. Giving voice to them will make them more real to you and everyone around you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When you are around a certain person, you feel like life is happening just for you. Thatâ€™s a pretty special feeling, not to be taken lightly. Your connection with this person may be casual, but that doesnâ€™t make it unimportant. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Blinders will be useful. This is not for an external environment. Right now you need to slap on some internal blinders to block out the self-invented notions that do not benefit you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Hereâ€™s what makes you an indisputable winner whom other people want on their team: Youâ€™ll take in the situation and then promptly decide you can make it better. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Hereâ€™s the way you really feel: With so many who have come and gone from this planet, itâ€™s a gift just to be alive. Your moments will be wonderful because this knowledge is at the heart of them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Feeling lost is not your favorite thing, but itâ€™s a necessary part of being an adventurer. If you always knew where you were and where you were headed, you wouldnâ€™t be you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Professional organizers suggest using a uniform type of container for your belongings. It keeps things easier to stack, categorize and deal with. Youâ€™ll execute a metaphorical version of this concept today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The thing youâ€™ll do today is both difficult and necessary. There is never going to be a better time for it, either, so just bite the bullet and get it done. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): To be funny is a talent few are born with, but luckily itâ€™s possible to cultivate it. You will! The people you spend time with today will help you to find your funny. DEAR AMY: I recently invited an acquaintance, â€œAl,â€ to a TV sports viewing party. He invited his friend â€œEdâ€ to join us. Al and Ed have known each other their entire lives, but I had never met Ed before. They are both 70 years old. After the game ended, we three were talking when Ed suddenly said to me, â€œSo, what are we going to do now, make love?â€ Then, a few minutes later he said, â€œWhen Iâ€™m driving my car, you can pay off a bet.â€ I had not made any sports bets with him. He was alluding to a sexual act. Al did not hear the crass questions. I ignored Edâ€™s offensive behavior. Both Al and I are decent, kind and considerate people. I was dressed conservatively in sports attire. We were kind and welcoming to Ed. All of my friends are well-mannered and courteous. Edâ€™s offensive remarks were negative and insulting. He did not drink alcohol and no drugs were present, so what gives? I told Al about this and he did not know why Ed acted offensively. What could I have said to Ed to fend off both remarks? Also I do not trust Ed, and he knows where I live. What can I do proactively to protect myself? PROPER AND PUZZLED GAL DEAR PROPER: There are any number of ways to respond to a rude remark in the moment, but I think the best is â€œJeopardyâ€ style â€” pose your response as a question. You say, â€œExcuse me? What did you just say to me?â€ After you call the offender out in this way, he will either moonwalk his remark back or double down and make things worse. Either way, you can say, â€œI donâ€™t like it. Not at all.â€ Then you stand up and leave his presence. Not giving the person further access to you prevents him from offending again. Some brain disorders do cause inappropriate outbursts â€” could â€œEdâ€ be suffering from the beginning stages of dementia? However, it is not your job to diagnose or excuse this other personâ€™s behavior. I donâ€™t think you need to â€œproactivelyâ€ protect yourself. If he shows up at your house or tries to contact you, you donâ€™t communicate with him. If you feel threatened, call the police. Obviously, inviting him to next yearâ€™s Super Bowl party is out of the question. DEAR AMY: You are ridiculous in your response to â€œRelate or Wait?â€ Kids donâ€™t need to know the details of their parentsâ€™ previous marriages/sex buddies/one-night stands, etc. Why tell kids youâ€™ve been married before? If there are no other children, then NO NO NO. What is to be gained by telling? Who are these stupid people who want to tell? DISGUSTED DEAR DISGUSTED: Someone to whom you were once married is vastly different from â€œsex buddies/ one-night stands, etc.â€ One reason to disclose a previous marriage to children is because a marriage â€” even if brief â€” is an important part of a parentâ€™s life, pre-children. Another reason is that a previous marriage is a historical fact of which there are not only memories but also legal records. When a child learns about a previous marriage from someone other than the parent, he or she can find this lie of omission very hurtful and confusing. Why not disclose it?

Contact us Roy Houpt Religion Editor 747-5067 firstname.lastname@example.org Faith Page B8 | The News Herald | Saturday, February 21, 2015 Hastings College seeks return of 1921 Bible HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) â€” Hastings College officials are asking for the return of a 1921 Bible valued at $6,000 that went missing from the campus libraryâ€™s collection. The Grand Island Independent reports an anonymous donor is offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the two-volume Jewish Bible. Matt Fong, the collegeâ€™s chief of staff, says no questions will be asked of the person returning the book, which was donated to the college in 2007. The book was discovered missing about six months ago, when the donor asked to see it. Fong says officials have searched places the book might be, such as with members of the college religion department. He says itâ€™s likely the book was stolen. German archdiocese has $3.8 billion fortune BERLIN â€” The Roman Catholic archdiocese of Cologne published financial accounts Wednesday, showing for the first time the full extent of its worldly wealth. The archdiocese has long been considered Germanyâ€™s richest, but exact figures werenâ€™t known because the church never published its accounts. Documents posted on its website show Cologne had assets of 3.35 billion euros ($3.82 billion) at the end of 2013. Some 2.4 billion euros were invested in stocks, funds and company holdings. A further 646 million euros were held in tangible assets, mostly property. Pope walks in Ash Wednesday procession ROME â€” Pope Francis walked in a solemn Ash Wednesday procession between churches on Romeâ€™s ancient Aventine Hill, calling on people to humbly remember their human limits as faithful began their annual penitential Lenten period. Francis, carrying his pastoral staff, chanted prayers along with other participants during the few minutesâ€™ walk down the street. He wore a purple cloak, in keeping with the somber Lenten mood as Catholics spiritually prepare for Easter, which falls on April 5 this year. The pope lowered his head so a prelate could dab ashes on his head during the ceremony inside St. Sabinaâ€™s Basilica, a church which dates to the early 5th century. The ashes symbolize mortality. Then Francis, along with other churchmen, sprinkled ashes on the foreheads of other faithful.

Clergy at Advent Evangelical 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. Itâ€™s the first time the church offered the drive-by service, said the Rev. Aaron Layne. The congregation supported it, he told The Columbus Dispatch, 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 havenâ€™t been to church in years. Other churches also have taken more informal approaches to Ash Wednesday. The â€œAshes to Goâ€ movement began in 2007 with ashes given to some 100 passers-by outside a coffeehouse in Missouri, the Rev. Teresa K.M. Danieley of St. Johnâ€™s Episcopal Church in St. Louis wrote on the â€œAshes to Goâ€ website. The practice has since spread, and the website lists quick ash distribution services in more than 30 states and in several countries. T H E REV. A AR ON LA YNE A P photos Pastor Grant Eckhart places ashes on Marilyn Elliottâ€™s forehead (left) during the drive-up Ash Wednesday at Advent Evangelical Lutheran Church in Upper Arlington, Ohio.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD SATURDAY , February 21, 2015 Section C Facebook: tinyurl.com/NHSports Twitter: @NH_Sports www.newsherald.com/sports Malone advances to state semifinals By DUS TIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent firstname.lastname@example.org M A LONE â€” Malone ver sus Chipley was the state championship matchup many Panhandle basketball fans dreamed of a year ago. Unfortunately, Chipley lost in the semifinals and the dream matchup never materi alized. It wonâ€™t be for the state championship, but the Tigers versus Tigers game that many wanted will finally take place Tuesday in Lakeland. After Chipley took care of business with a 60-43 road win over West Gadsden, Malone held up its end of the bargain with a 67-65 victory over Paxton in the Region 1-1A finals Friday night. Antwain Johnson scored 25 points to lead Malone, with Chancellor Lockett adding 20 points and two clutch free throws to help the Tigers withstand a furious late rally by the Bobcats. Just three weeks ago, Malone was reeling from five straight losses. Now the Tigers are just two wins away from claiming their second straight state championship and the 15th in school history. â€œI havenâ€™t even been able to process it yet,â€ Tigers coach Steven Welch said. â€œLast year, we were kind of the dark horse. This year, weâ€™re definitely sort of a Cin derella team, especially with how we were playing late in the season. Iâ€™m just proud of the guys for sticking together and getting better to be able to get to this point.â€ Things nearly fell apart at the end for the Tigers, who led by nine points with 3:28 to play before the Bobcats made a big run spurred on by their fullcourt press and five missed free throws by Malone. Paxton got to within two after a wild sequence in which Zac Varnum split a pair of free throws, then scored with a foul after an offensive rebound on the miss of the second attempt. Varnum then missed the bonuses, but the ball went out of bounds off of Malone. That gave the Bobcats possession down 65-63 with 16.6 seconds left and a chance to tie or take the lead. Paxton turned the ball over when Asa Fayne was called for violation while try ing to get the ball down low to Varnum. A foul with 9.3 seconds left sent Lockett to the foul line for two critical free throws and the junior nailed both of them to make it a two-possession game. An offensive rebound and putback by Devin Huckaba with just over a second left got it back to two, but the clock expired with Paxton out of timeouts to set off a familiar celebration for the Malone fans. North Bay Haven gets first victory of season By P AT McC ANN 747-5068 | email@example.com P A N A M A CI TY â€” Chalk one up for youth over experience. North Bay Haven not only got its first victory of the season, 6-3 over host Bay on Friday night, but it was the schoolâ€™s first softball win as a member of the Florida High School Athletics Association. And it came with a 15-player roster that nearly has half of its members in the sevenththrough ninth-grade classes. Two of the seventh-graders, Destiny Sternberg and Lauren Freed, each had two hits and a run batted in as the Buccaneers made four first-inning runs stand up against the Tornadoes. Bay, which was edged 3-2 by Mosley on Thursday, lost its fourth straight and is 2-4. North Bay Haven is 1-8. â€œWeâ€™ve played some tough teams, which has helped, and tonight I thought they listened,â€ said NBH coach Butch Bernard. â€œWeâ€™ve worked hard, practiced six days a week and had four games last week and four this week which I also think helped.â€ Bernard said junior Morgan Beecher pitched all four games this week, and she went the distance against Bay, allowing eight hits. She struck out four and walked two. Beecher was helped by slickfielding sophomore shortstop Madison Hamilton, who made two outstanding stops to throw out Bay hitters and also started two double plays.

Wesley Roberson leaps over the runner as rst baseman Trevor Davis (15) looks on. â€˜ATRO C IOUSâ€™ NASCAR issues indefinite suspension to Kurt Busch DAYT ON A BE A CH (AP) â€” NASCAR sus pended Kurt Busch indefinitely Friday after a judge said the former champion almost surely choked and beat a former girlfriend last fall and there was a â€œsubstantial likelihoodâ€ of more domestic violence from him in the future. In a stunning move two days before the sea son-opening Daytona 500, NASCAR said Busch would not be allowed to participate in any series activities until further notice given the â€œserious nature of the findings and conclusionsâ€ made by a Delaware judge involving the driver known as â€œThe Outlaw.â€ â€œKurt Busch and his Stewart-Haas Racing team are fully aware of our position and why this decision was made,â€ NASCAR said in a state ment. â€œWe will continue to respect the process and timetable of the authorities involved.â€ Busch attorney Rusty Hardin said the driver will appeal, and NASCAR said it will be expedited. â€œWe assure everyone, including NASCAR, that this action against Mr. Busch will turn out to be a travesty of justice, apparent to all, as this story continues to unfold,â€ Hardin said in a statement. â€œIt is important for everyone to remember that the Commissionerâ€™s report has to do with a civil, family law matter and no criminal charges have been filed against Mr. Busch. â€œWe ask everyoneâ€™s patience as this case continues in the court of law and are confident that when the truth is known Mr. Busch will be fully vindicated and back in the driverâ€™s seat.â€ Busch becomes the first driver suspended by NASCAR for domestic violence. Chairman Brian France had maintained the series would let the process play out before ruling on Buschâ€™s eligibility â€” and the series came down hard in finding that he committed actions detrimen tal to stock car racing and broke the seriesâ€™ behavioral rules. By P AT McC ANN 747-5068 | firstname.lastname@example.org P A N A M A CI TY â€” Midway through Gulf Coastâ€™s 6-4 loss to Shel ton State on Friday morning, the game had the feel of an ugly loss for whichever ballclub came out on the short end. It wasnâ€™t because both teams were throwing the ball around on defense at Bill Frazier Field. More that the Buccaneers were doing so from the mound. Six walks and three hit batters gave the Commodores ample oppor tunities to blow open the game. When they did not, Daniel Garnerâ€™s threerun home run gave the Bucs the lead during a four-run rally in the sixth inning. Closer Tanner Cunningham firmly shifted the agony of defeat to the Commodores with two scoreless innings and Gulf Coast fell to 8-6 over all. Shelton State is 2-6. The Commodores stranded 12 baserunners through five innings, at least two every inning, and 13 over all. They managed only five hits, one of them when the Bucsâ€™ pitcher was late covering first base. In addition, twice Shelton State infielders were unable to corral pop flies in foul territory that gave Gulf Coast batters extra swings, and the Bucs had Woody Edwards picked off first base but he eluded the tag at second following a rundown. Little seemed to work offensively for Gulf Coast, turning what appeared to be a sure victory into a loss, and again depriving sophomore righthander West Covington, a 10-game winner in 2014, his first triumph this season. â€œAtrocious,â€ Gulf Coast coach Mike Kandler said of many of his teamâ€™s atbats with runners in scoring position. â€œYou would think that at some point they would be embarrassed. â€œItâ€™s unacceptable. They gave us our runs. We couldnâ€™t get any by ourselves.â€ Shelton State didnâ€™t have that problem in the sixth inning. Coving ton had pitched three consecutive 1-2-3 innings entering the sixth, then quickly departed after Michael Pow ell and Josh Winingham opened with singles. Freshman left-hander Austin Goff relieved. Goff had not allowed an earned run in five previous appear ances, but after Kevin Usselman bunted both runners into scoring position, Garner drilled a three-run shot to left field. Dylan Ingram and Blake Smith followed with singles to finish Goffâ€™s stint. Deviner McCray came on and allowed Davis Coxâ€™s RBI single before registering two strikeouts as the Bucs batted around.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Saturday, February 21, 2015 Ebro: Gulfstream to host Fountain of Youth Stakes The News Herald EBRO â€” The road to the Kentucky Derby continues today with the Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream, simulcast at Ebro Greyhound Park. Post time in the 1 and 1-16 mile Derby prep race is 4:30 p.m. CST. Upstart and Frosted are drawing favored status in a field of eight. Upstart is 8-to-5 on the morning line and Frosted 5-2 for the Grade II race. Upstart and Frosted squared off previously in the Grade II Holy Bull Stakes in late January. Frosted entered as the favorite, but Upstart dominated in a 5-length win from Post 8. Frosted was second and Blue grass Singer, 8-1 for the Foun tain of Youth, was third. Should Upstart produce a similar performance today he may establish himself as the new favorite to win the Derby. Dortmund presently has that status, but Upstart definitely is coming on. The Road to the Ken tucky Derby qualifying system, which includes 34 races, awards 85 points for the Fountain of Youth Stakes. The Top 20 Road to the Ken tucky Derby point earners will be eligible for a Kentucky Derby post. Upstart and Frosted are currently fourth and 16th, respectively, in the latest points standings. Bluegrass Singer will have a new rider for the Fountain of Youth as Paco Lopez will replace Javier Castellano, who was aboard for the last two races. Lopez will be the fourth jockey in nine starts to ride Bluegrass Singer, follow ing Orlando Bocachica, Hall of Famer Edgar Prado and Castellano. Upstart schooled in the pad dock and walking ring Thurs day. He was vanned from Palm Meadows Training Center in Palm Beach County before visiting Gulfstreamâ€™s saddling area and walking ring prior to the first race. Trainer Rick Violette expressed pleasure in Upstartâ€™s readiness for the major prep for the upcoming $1 million Florida Derby on March 28 and the Tri ple Crown. â€œHeâ€™s doing so good,â€ Vio lette said. â€œTrainers are always tempted to tinker, and there isnâ€™t much to tinker with.â€ Greyhounds: The first round of the Derby Lane Sprint Clas sic will be held this evening. In the fourth race, Stylistic has made eight trifectas in nine starts including six straight. In the sixth, Just A Dream is five for five in the trifecta, but rated only a second favorite to PJ Fresno on the morning line. Fresno has won two straight. Penrose Lobo has won five of seven entering the eighth race, and goes against Bally Boy Labron coming off an impressive triumph. The 10th should be hotly contested head lined by Husker Magic, who has four wins and two seconds in six starts. JW Kapuna Magic has six wins in 12 starts and Cheap Thrill appears back in form from his last three outs. At Sarasota, Ben Creed has the 1 hole for the matinee sev enth and has made four straight quinielas. Kingfish made Grade A after four consecutive wins and could rate better than his sixth-place finish in his A debut on Tuesday. Flyin Branjelina brings a string of six straight trifectas into the 14th race, and goes against Kristina Kenney, who won on Monday to return to Grade A. The News Herald PENSACOLA â€” The phrase â€œmust-winâ€ is thrown around casually, and often inaccurately in sports conver sation. But it couldnâ€™t be more apt for both Gulf Coast bas ketball teams in their regularseason finales tonight. The Commodoresâ€™ men and women each need to beat Pensacola State to keep their seasons alive. The men can clinch a state tournament berth with a victory, and the women need a win to force a one-game playoff. The womenâ€™s game will tip off at 5:30 p.m. followed by the men at 7:30. For the Gulf Coast men (19-9 overall, 6-5 in the Pan handle Conference), the game is a winner-take-all for the state tournament in Ocala. The Commodores and the Pirates (17-11, 6-5) are dead locked in the standings for the second postseason spot. Gulf Coast moved into a tie for second with an 81-77 home win over Northwest Florida State on Wednesday after Pensacola lost its previous conference game to the Raid ers 93-84 Feb. 14 in Niceville. The Commodores and Pirates have split their first two meetings this season, with Pensacola winning 69-61 at home Jan. 17 and Gulf Coast taking the rematch 64-58 Jan. 31 in Panama City. Gulf Coast is led offen sively by Anton Waters at 11.5 points per game, followed by Jonathan Wade at 11.3, and Quavius Copeland at 10.4. Rozelle Nix leads the Pirates with 11.4 points per game, with Kevin Baker adding 10.2, and Johnell Ginnie 9.8. The Lady Commodores (17-9, 4-7) simply need to beat the last-place Lady Pirates (8-19, 0-11), who are still searching for their first confer ence win. That would produce a tie for third with Tallahassee in Panhandle standings. Three womenâ€™s teams from the conference earn state berths compared to two for the men. Should Gulf Coast win, it would force a one-game playoff with TCC to be played Tuesday evening at Chipola to determine the third tour nament berth. Frontrunners Chipola and Northwest Flor ida State have locked up the other two. The Lady Commodores had a chance to create a winand-get-in scenario like the men had they won Wednes day against NWFS, but the Lady Raiders held off a late Gulf Coast surge to win 64-61 and sweep the season series. Gulf Coast will try to com plete its own season sweep of the Lady Pirates, who it has beaten by scores of 69-40 and 76-49 in the first two meetings. Sophomore forward Chelsey Gibson is aver aging 27.5 points and 12 rebounds in the two games against Pensacola and is leading GC for the season at 19 points per game to go with 8.8 rebounds. Kristina King is averaging 15.7 points and a team-high 12.3 rebounds per game for the Lady Commodores, while Tianah Alvarado is scoring 14 points per game. Alaysia Mitchell is lead ing the Lady Pirates with a 14.3 scoring average. â€˜Must winâ€™ for GC teams in final games They had six of their 11 hits during the uprising and Cunningham allowed only a walk to pinch-hitter Jon Bennett during his two innings. Shelton State 6-foot-8, 270-pound starting pitcher Chase Johnson-Mul lins had a polar-opposite outing. John son-Mullins walked three, hit Christian Williams with a pitch and wild-pitched a run across â€” all in the first inning. The Commodoresâ€™ lone hit was a drib bler to the right side by Dondrayas Harris that went for an RBI single when Johnson-Mullins was late cover ing first. The Bucs tied it 2-2 in the top of the second with Cox and Price Visintainer each stroking RBI singles. Two more walks, another hit batter and a throw ing error gave Gulf Coast a 3-2 edge in the bottom of the inning. When Johnson-Mullins walked Harris to open the third, Smith relieved for Shelton State. Another walk and a wild pitch led to Wesley Robersonâ€™s run-scoring sacrifice fly that made it 4-2. Trevor Davis singled and Nick Nelson doubled leading off the Gulf Coast fourth, but Cameron Ragsdale grounded into a 6-4-3 double play with the bases loaded to end the threat. Edwards notched his second single of the game and Max Bartlett was hit by a pitch with two outs in the fifth. Both runners moved into scoring posi tion on a wild pitch, but Davis popped up to second baseman Visintainer to keep the score at 4-2. â€œRight now weâ€™re not doing any thing consistently,â€ Kandler said. â€œFor the 14-game mark weâ€™ve not been a very good team.â€ Edwards was the lone Commodore with two hits, and also walked twice and stole two bases. Powell, Garner and Cox each had two hits for the Bucs. Shelton State 020 004 0 â€” 6 11 1 Gulf Coast 211 000 0 â€” 4 5 1 Johnson-Mullins, Smith (W) 3, Cunningham (S) 6 and Gar ner.

Wesley Roberson had a single, double and RBI for the Commodores. â€œAustin Howze was the story,â€ Kandler said. â€œHe pitched extremely well.â€ Gulf Coast will play Shelton State today at 10 a.m. and Wallace at 3 p.m. Florida State 7, Georgia 5 ATHENS, Ga. â€” Florida State scored three times in the seventh inning after Georgia had gone ahead with four in the bottom of the sixth. John Sansone had a double, homer and four RBIs to key the Seminoles, 4-1. Quincy Nieporte had a hit and two runs batted in and Danny De La Calle two hits and an RBI. Taylor Folsom recorded the final out of the sixth inning to get the win for FSU and Drew Carlton and Billy Strode combined for three scoreless innings in relief. Zack Bowers homered and Stephen Wrenn and Jared Walsh each knocked in two runs for Georgia, 3-1. Florida 4, Miami 3 GAINESVILLE â€” Buddy Reedâ€™s third hit of the game scored Josh Tobias with the game-win ning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning for Florida. Miami scored three times in the top of the sixth inning to take a 3-1 lead, but the Gators ral lied with two runs in the bottom half of the inning. Tobias opened the Florida ninth being hit by a pitch and was sacrificed to second by Ryan Larson. Reedâ€™s single to center field ended the game. Softball GC drops pair GULF SHORES, Ala. â€” Gulf Coast dropped a pair of games in the Sun Chief Clas sic hosted by Faulkner State. The Lady Commodores sagged to 10-12 with a 5-3 loss to LSU-Eunice and 10-2 loss to Wallace-Hanceville. They are scheduled to play three games today starting with Faulkner State at 11:15 a.m. Florida 11, Liberty 0 GAINESVILLE â€” Lauren Haeger pitched a five-inning one-hitter to extend her season string of scoreless inning to 28 in her sixth victory. Haeger also slugged one of four homers for the Gators, 12-0. Taylor Fuller had a grand-slam homer in a six-run third. Kayli Kvistad added a two-run shot later in the inning. Kvistad had four RBIs in the game. BASEB ALL from Page C1 The Bucs scored four times in the first inning, then went quietly when Jelly Mathes entered the circle for the Tornadoes in the second inning. Bay rallied with single runs in the first, second and third to get within 43. NBH answered when Freedâ€™s single plated Sternberg in the fourth, and tacked on another run in the seventh when Hamilton came around from second base on Kaitlyn Burkeâ€™s bunt single. The Tornadoes scored in the first on Mariah Deatonâ€™s RBI double, made it 4-2 in the second when Mathes knocked in Hannah Dunnigan, and inched within a run when Taylor Beasonâ€™s single scored Deaton. Hamilton started double plays in the fourth and sixth to stymie potential Tornadoesâ€™ rallies, and Bay couldnâ€™t produce in the fifth despite Jada Kennedy and Deaton reaching with nobody out.

2077822 Gun Show February 23rd & 24th Ft. Wa lton Beach Fairgr ounds FREE PA RKING Concealed We apons Class Sat/Sun 11 am or 2pm Floridagunshows.com Sat 9-5 Sun 10-4 Fe br uar y 21 ST & 22 ND Ft. Wa lton Beach Fa irgr ounds NEW YORK (AP) â€” Major League Baseball is making some changes designed to speed games but wonâ€™t implement more radical proposals this year. The league and the playersâ€™ union announced an agreement Friday to enforce the rule requiring a hitter to keep at least one foot in the batterâ€™s box in most cases. MLB also will post stadium clocks tim ing pitching changes and between-inning breaks. MLB did not institute many of the ideas experi mented with during the Ari zona Fall League, such as a 20-second clock between pitches, a limitation of pitcherâ€™s mound confer ences involving catchers and managers, and no-pitch intentional walks. The pitch clock will be used in the minor leagues at Double-A and Triple-A. Penalties for violating the new rules start May 1 and will involve only fines, and MLB said it is likely to announce only fines involving repeat flagrant violators. In the AFL, strikes and balls were called as penalties. â€œI think itâ€™s something thatâ€™s going to take some time,â€ San Diego Padres catcher Derek Norris said. â€œYouâ€™ve got guys playing for seven, eight years that have always stepped out of the box and taken a practice swing.â€ MLB cannot make uni lateral changes to playing rules without the unionâ€™s consent unless it gives one year prior notice, so an agreement was necessary for any 2015 alterations. The World Umpires Association also approved. â€œThe players believe that enforcing the rules that currently exist regard ing between-inning breaks and plate appearances is the best way to address the issue of pace of play,â€ union head Tony Clark said in a statement. â€œWeâ€™re confi dent that todayâ€™s announce ments will have a positive impact on the pace of the game without jeopardiz ing the integrity of the competition.â€ The average time of nineinning games was a record 3 hours, 2 minutes last year, up from 2:33 in 1981. â€œThese changes repre sent a step forward in our efforts to streamline the pace of play,â€ said Rob Man fred, who took over from Bud Selig as commissioner last month. â€œThe most fun damental starting point for improving the pace of the average game involves get ting into and out of breaks seamlessly.â€ The rule requiring hit ters keep a foot in the box contains many exceptions, including swinging at a pitch, getting forced out by a pitch, calling time, faking a bunt and wild pitches and passed balls. The clocks will be installed on or near outfield scoreboards and on facades behind home plate, near most press boxes. Inning breaks will be counted down from 2:25 for locally televised games and 2:45 for nationally televised games. Pitchers must throw their last warmup pitches before 30 seconds remaining, with exceptions if the pitcher or catcher is on base when the previous half-inning ends. MLB will make a dona tion to the unionâ€™s charitable foundation based on compli ance with the new rules. The sides also announced changes for the second season of expanded video review by umpires. Managers no longer will have to leave their dugouts to call for replays, unless the play in question ends an inning and the defen sive team must be kept on the field. In addition, plays involving whether a runner left a base early or touched a base on a tag-up play will be subject to video review for the first time. Managers also will retain the challenge for every overturned call, not just the first, and managers will have two challenges dur ing tiebreaker and postsea son games and the All-Star Game. A manager will be required to use a challenge to review violations of the home-plate collision rule, but the crew chief may call for a review from the sev enth inning on if a manager is out of challenges. MLB makes small pace-of-game changes BOSTON RED S OX DESIGNATED HITTE R D AVID OR TIZ JOSE FE R NANDEZ JUPITER (AP) â€” The reluctant veteran and eager ace both reported to Miami Marlins camp Friday, and come July they might be in the rotation together, dis proving doubters. Dan Haren weighed retirement after being traded but decided to join his new team. Jose Fer nandez came to camp to continue his recovery from elbow surgery last May, and heâ€™s on schedule to return around midseason. Their arrivals created a little extra buzz for a team that, for a change, finds itself in conversations about October in February. â€œI love it,â€ Fernandez said. â€œI think we have a playoff team. Iâ€™m going to enjoy my teammates being in first place by the All-Star Game.â€ Thatâ€™s when Fernan dez hopes to be back in the rotation. The Marlins resume play after the AllStar break July 17, and Fernandez said his doctor has tentatively targeted that date for a return. He said he is throwing every day from a distance of 150 feet, began to toss breaking balls this week and has had no setbacks in his rehabilitation. He expects to begin throw ing off a mound in early March. â€œSo far there hasnâ€™t been any discomfort,â€ he said. â€œIâ€™m feeling great.â€ Fernandez was the NL Rookie of the Year in 2013. He has a 16-8 career record with a 2.25 ERA in 36 starts, and heâ€™s still only 22. But the lengthy rehabilitation has tested his patience and tempered his hubris. â€œI want to pitch tomor row. Are you kidding me? Thatâ€™s just who I am,â€ he said. â€œBut youâ€™ve got to be smart. Itâ€™s not, â€˜Iâ€™m 22. I can do whatever I want. My arm is made of steel. I throw 100 mph.â€™ Those times already happened a little bit. â€œYouâ€™ve got to take care of your arm, because itâ€™s not only about you. Itâ€™s about your teammates. Theyâ€™re counting on me.â€ Fernandez looks forward to return Pitcher joins newcomer Haren in spring training â€œI love it. I think we have a playoff team. Iâ€™m going to enjoy my teammates being in first place by the All-Star Game.â€ JOSE FERNANDEZ Miami Marlins pitcher Harvey could throw 200 innings this year PORT ST. LUCIE (AP) â€” While the New York Mets plan to closely monitor Matt Harveyâ€™s innings, general manager Sandy Alderson says his ace right-hander could throw 200 â€” including the postseason â€” in his first year back from elbow surgery. Harvey hasnâ€™t pitched in a game since Aug. 24, 2013, and had elbow ligamentreplacement surgery that Oct. 22. Speaking a day before the Metsâ€™ first workout of his fifth spring training as their GM, Alderson didnâ€™t want to be more specific about Harveyâ€™s contem plated workload. â€œIf I give you a number, weâ€™re going to hear about that for the next 10 months,â€ Alderson said Friday. â€œThe number might change. We might take a look at Matt and say, â€˜Wow, let him go.â€™ But we might have to dial it back a little bit. â€œI think whatâ€™s more important is how this thing is managed over the course of the season, but I donâ€™t think itâ€™s going to require that much management. Weâ€™re not looking for him to pitch 215-20-25 innings. On the other hand, weâ€™re expecting him to have a solid season.â€ The 25-year-old was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA two years ago, when he struck out 191 in 178 1/3 innings and started for the NL in the All-Star Game at Citi Field. Alderson said in developing a plan for Harvey, the Mets researched how other teams handled pitchers coming back from elbow surgery. Washington cut short Stephen Strasburg after 159 1/3 innings in 2012, his first full season in the majors after his elbow surgery. Alderson said the Mets will not do that with Harvey. â€œItâ€™s not that we have an innings limit,â€ Alderson said. â€œWe have a target number in mind that will inform us as we manage from day to day, from start to start. Itâ€™s not an evolving strategy, but I think itâ€™s sort of a loose understand ing of where we want to be at the end of the season.â€ Alderson said the team will take advantage of off days and spot starts to give Harvey extra rest throughout the season, but is mindful not to disrupt other pitchers in the rotation. The Mets start spring training with six potential starters, a group that also includes Zack Wheeler, NL Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom, Jonathon Niese, Bar tolo Colon and Dillon Gee. Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz are top prospects. Alderson does not anticipate any trades before open ing day. â€œThere arenâ€™t that many spring training deals,â€ Alderson said. â€œIt does happen. Someone may get hurt. Someone may have a need. But I donâ€™t plan on making a deal in spring training. What we have in camp is prob ably what weâ€™re going to have, and we have to make decisions accordingly.â€ MATT H A R VEY Mets pitcher MIAMI MARLINS BASEBALL Saturday, February 21, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 The finish wasnâ€™t as clean as the Tigers wouldâ€™ve wanted, but Welch said heâ€™ll put his grievances aside for at least one night. â€œWe didnâ€™t make our free throws late and that really hurt us,â€ Welch said. â€œWe also didnâ€™t handle the ball very well against their pressure. There are a bunch of things I want to complain about, but at this time of the year all you want is to get the win and move on. We won and now we have a chance to live on to the next day.â€ The Tigers led 22-16 with just under three minutes left in the second quarter after backto-back 3-pointers by Johnson. Paxton closed the half with an 8-3 run capped by a basket by Varnum to cut the margin to 25-24 at the break. Johnson came out cooking in the third quarter by knock ing in his first three jumpers, the last a 3-pointer to make it 32-30 Tigers. Locket came alive from the perimeter by making three 3-pointers and scoring 11 points in the quarter to give Malone a 49-40 lead going into the fourth quarter. The junior guard said that Welch implored him and his teammates to come out with more aggression to start the second half. â€œCoach said we needed to go out and start playing to win instead of playing not to lose,â€ Lockett said. â€œI just had to go out there and do my job, do whatever it takes to help my team win.â€ Also coming up big for the Tigers was senior Jarmel Dil lard, who scored a season-high 18 points, grabbed six rebounds, and drew raves from Maloneâ€™s coach and top player. â€œHe was so huge for us,â€ Welch said. â€œFor a guy like him to come in and go get buckets and boards like that was huge. Itâ€™s what a senior should do. He wasnâ€™t ready for it to end.â€ Johnson said he told Dil lard before the game that the Tigers were going to need more from him if they were going to advance. â€œI had a talk with Jarmel and told him that to keep the season alive he was going to have to step up,â€ Johnson said. â€œAny great team is going to have to be led by the seniors and he went out there and played like he was capable.â€ Malone overcame a huge effort from Paxtonâ€™s sopho more center Varnum, who finished with 31 points and 17 rebounds. Grant Stewart and Des mond Moore added 13 points, with Moore finishing with 11 rebounds as well. â€œPaxton deserves a lot of credit. Theyâ€™ve got a heck of a team,â€ Welch said. â€œI just canâ€™t say enough about our guysâ€™ abil ity to fight through adversity and hang in there and get it done.â€ Malone now gets a Chipley team led by junior superstar Trent Forrest. Chipley was the popular pick to win the 1A state championship at the start of the season. Johnson said heâ€™s looking forward to the opportunity to compete against Forrest and the Tigers after missing out on the opportunity a year ago. â€œWe wanted a chance to play them last year,â€ Johnson said. â€œPeople said that Trent being out is the only reason they didnâ€™t win. But we want to go down there and prove them wrong.â€ Malone (21-8) will face Chipley (26-3) in the state semi finals Tuesday, with the winner to play for the state champi onship Wednesday against the winner of Hawthorne vs. Crescent City.

Sure, heâ€™s a two-time U.S. Open champion, and the Northern Trust Open drew some comparisons to golfâ€™s toughest test with its firm, fast conditions. For now, Goosen was just thrilled to be in the lead going into the weekend at any tournament. Goosen rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt on his final hole for a 1-under 70 and his first 36-hole lead in more than four years. He was one shot ahead of Ryan Moore (68), Graham DeLaet (67) and Justin Thomas, the 21-yearold rookie who already has been in the weekend hunt twice this year. Thomas made three crucial par saves on his final nine holes for a 69. Reddick wins Truck Series season opener DAYTONA BEACH â€” Tyler Reddick won the season-opening Truck Series race Friday night at Daytona International Speedway. Reddick held the lead down the stretch in the 100-lap race, giving team owner Brad Keselowski a win. It nearly was a 1-2 finish for Brad Keselowski Racing. â€œIt feels amazing,â€ Reddick said. â€œWe got here in victory lane at Daytona. Itâ€™s unbelievable.â€ Blood clots could derail Heatâ€™s Bosh NEW YORK â€” All-Star forward Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat underwent more tests in a South Florida hospital on Friday, amid concerns that blood clots have worked their way from his legs to his lungs to create a condition that could be season-ending or worse. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said the team is still waiting for a full diagnosis and expected prognosis, insisting that it is too soon to draw any conclusions.

The Hurricanes (17-9, 7-6) are battling to improve their NCAA tournament chances. They can help themselves today against the Cardinals (20-6, 8-5). Miami routed Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium but also lost to the likes of Eastern Kentucky and Georgia Tech. The Cardinals are coming off a loss at Syracuse and chasing one of the ACC tournamentâ€™s top four seeds that comes with a double-round bye. The Cardinals will have senior guard Chris Jones, who missed the Syracuse loss due to an indefinite suspension that has since been lifted. LOOKING AHEAD : Another team in that NCAA chase, North Carolina State, finds itself in similar position to Miami as it visits rival North Caro lina on Tuesday. Last weekendâ€™s road upset of Louis ville was a big boost for the Wolfpack. After hosting Virginia Tech today , North Carolina State goes for its first win in Chapel Hill since 2003. PLAYER TO WATCH : With Justin Ander son out for Virginia, Malcolm Brogdon is carry ing a heavier load for the No. 2 Cavaliers. The redshirt junior all-ACC performer has averaged 14.7 points in the three games since Anderson suffered a finger injury that will keep him out sev eral weeks, including 18 points in Mondayâ€™s win against Pittsburgh. Virginia hosts Florida State on Sunday. â€œHe is steady, he is tough, and he is often guarding the best perimeter player,â€ Vir ginia coach Tony Bennett said. â€œIn all ways, he is an ambassador for this university and this program.â€ INSIDE THE NUMBERS : There have been three league games in which a team blew a double-figure halftime lead and lost. Notre Dame trailed by 18 in the first half and 42-30 at half before winning at N.C. State, Louisville was down 36-25 at half and trailed by 18 after halftime before beating beat UNC in overtime and Florida State rallied from 16 down in the first half and 36-25 at half to beat Miami. ON THE WOMENâ€™S SIDE: Two years in, and No. 4 Notre Dame has lost just once against ACC opponents. The Fighting Irish completed a 19-game perfect run through the league regular season and tournament last year, and improved to 11-1 in Year 2 after Mondayâ€™s win against No. 10 Duke. Led by Jewell Loyd and fresh man Brianna Turner, the Fighting Irish traveled to Georgia Tech on Thursday night and host No. 8 Louisville on Monday. GAME OF THE WEEK : Florida at LSU today. The Gators have had a rough season, espe cially by their lofty standards, but the programâ€™s 6-7 SEC record (13-13 overall) is a little deceiv ing. Floridaâ€™s last five losses in league play have all been close, including three by just one point. LSU (18-8, 7-6) has lots of talent â€” especially in the frontcourt with Jarell Martin and Jordan Mickey â€” but hasnâ€™t been able to string together victories. If the Tigers donâ€™t win today, their NCAA tourna ment hopes will take another major hit. LOOKING AHEAD: Georgia (16-9, 7-6) once looked like one of the SECâ€™s best teams, but has had a brutal stretch thatâ€™s included backto-back home losses to Auburn and South Caro lina. Now the Bulldogsâ€™ prospects for an NCAA tournament bid donâ€™t look certain at all. Two road contests against Alabama and Mississippi will be very important this week. PLAYER TO WATCH : Texas A&M guard Danuel House scored 20 points Tuesday in a 68-62 victory over LSU. The 6-foot-7 junior is averaging 17 points per game over his last four contests. During that four-game stretch, House has shot 11 of 22 from 3-point range. NUMBERS GAME : No. 1 Kentuckyâ€™s 26-0 record marks the best start in school history â€” the Wildcats finished 25-0 in 1953-54 â€” but itâ€™s the third time a team coached by John Calipari has been 26-0. Calipari got there with Massachusetts in 1995-96 and Memphis in 2007-08. Both those teams reached the Final Four, but neither won a national title. ... Vanderbiltâ€™s 50-47 loss at Flor ida on Wednesday dropped the Commodoresâ€™ record to 0-6 in games decided by three points or less. Vanderbilt did beat Yale in overtime 79-74, but that game ended with a five-point margin. ON THE WOMENâ€™S SIDE : No. 6 Tennes see lost its leading scorer and rebounder this week when senior center Isabelle Harrison tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee. Har rison was averaging 12.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game. â€œWeâ€™re definitely just trying to play our best for her and get to Tampa (the home of the Final Four) for her,â€ Tennessee forward Cierra Burdick said. â€œThatâ€™s been our goal since Day One, but now we have even more motivation, with her going out. Thatâ€™s what she wants us to do.â€ ACC THIS WEEK SEC THIS WEEK LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) â€” The top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats know each one of their last five Southeastern Conference oppo nents wants to be the team that knocks them off. To prevent their first loss, as good as the Wildcats have been, theyâ€™ll need to be better â€” par ticularly when it comes to finish ing off foes. Though Kentucky (26-0, 13-0 SEC) has successfully absorbed everyoneâ€™s best shot, coach John Calipari wants his team to be the aggressors working up to delivering the knockout punch. First up down the stretch run is Auburn (12-14, 4-9) tonight. The Wildcats will be looking to build off their effort in Tuesdayâ€™s 66-48 victory at Tennessee. Calipari was pleased with how Kentucky regrouped after some early struggles. â€œTheyâ€™re getting better,â€ Calipari said of his team on Fri day. â€œThey were talking about it themselves. They brought it up last game. ... â€˜Weâ€™re up 12 (points), letâ€™s go. Letâ€™s get this to where itâ€™s supposed to be,â€™ and they kept playing and they did some good stuff. â€œWeâ€™ve still got a ways to go, though.â€ At first glance the schedule appears to favor Kentucky with Auburn the first of three consecu tive Saturday home games. On the other hand, the Wildcats will be hosting No. 18 Arkansas â€” which has beaten them three straight times â€” and Florida, which dropped a hard-fought 68-61 game to Kentucky two weeks ago. In between are road contests at Mississippi State on Wednes day and a March 3 return date at Georgia, which battled the heavily favored Wildcats before falling 69-58 earlier this month. Such gut checks keep the Wild cats from looking past Auburn, despite the fact that the Tigers have lost three of four. The Tigers, struggling to reach .500, will be motivated as anyone to put an end to Ken tuckyâ€™s pursuit of perfection. â€œThey play really hard,â€ Calipari said of Auburn under first-year coach Bruce Pearl. â€œOffensively, theyâ€™re playing pretty loose, driving the ball. Defensively, theyâ€™re just digging in and scrambling. Theyâ€™re not going to let us just throw it to the post.â€ To counter the expected challenge, Calipari and his assistants have been working individually with the Wildcats to make sure they exploit their size advantages within the two-pla toon concept. He has also made it clear that while close victories speak volumes about the Wild catsâ€™ poise, itâ€™s time they start putting teams away. Calipariâ€™s message appears to be getting through. The Wildcats shellacked South Carolina by 34 points at home last weekend and pulled away at Tennessee en route to the best start in the program history. But players say they are not focused on making history, just improving on its last game. The Associated Press Big Ten teams have been beating up on each other all con ference season, leaving more than half of them dancing on the NCAA tournament bubble. No. 5 Wisconsin is a lock to get into the bracket. The Bad gers reached the Final Four last season and look as if theyâ€™re geared for another deep March run. Up to eight other teams could join the Badgers. Maryland (22-5) appears to be in good shape barring a lateseason meltdown. Purdue (18-9) filled a big hole in its resume by beating Indiana in Bloomington on Thursday night. The 67-63 victory not only gave the Boilermakers a sea son sweep over the Hoosiers, it was their first road win over an NCAA tournament-caliber team this season. Purdue still has three games left against teams on the NCAA bubble: Ohio State, Michigan State and Illinois. Michigan State (18-8) has some ugly losses on its resume, including Nebraska and Texas Southern, but has won five of its past six games to make a strong case to be included. The Spar tans have Illinois, Wisconsin, Purdue and Indiana left, so they still have some work to do. Ohio State (19-7) doesnâ€™t really have any glaring losses on its resume, though a strong final push would certainly make the Buckeyes feel safer. Indiana (18-8) does have an ugly loss, to Eastern Washing ton, and has lost five of its past eight games. A loss to either Rutgers or Northwestern would hurt the Hoosiers, while beating Iowa and Michigan State would certainly be a boost. ON THE RISE SMU. The Mustangs (22-5) put themselves close to lock position with their 67-58 win over Temple on Thursday. Unless SMU loses out and drops the first game of the American Athletic Confer ence tournament, there should be no angst as there was last year, when the Mustangs came up just short of the 68-team field. Dayton . The Flyers (20-5) are in good shape after a three-game winning streak moved them into a three-way tie for the Atlantic 10 lead. Dayton canâ€™t afford losing to Duquesne or George Mason and has an opportunity to gain momentum if it can knock off VCU and Rhode Island, the two other teams tied for the conference lead. Mississippi : The Rebels (18-8) have played themselves to the inside of the bubble by winning seven of their last eight games, including a big one over rival Mississippi State on Thurs day. Still some work to do, but Ole Miss certainly looks better than it did after opening SEC play 2-3. FADING HOPES Clemson . The Tigers (15-11) have some losses that will be tough to over look, including Winthrop at home, Gardner-Webb and Rutgers. Losing to Georgia Tech on Monday wonâ€™t help Clemsonâ€™s cause, but the Tigers still have a shot at adding resume-building wins with Duke, N.C. State, Notre Dame and the ACC tournament still ahead. Kansas State . The Wildcats have some impressive victories in hand, including Baylor, Oklahoma State and a sweep over Oklahoma. The problem is there are too many losses; Kansas State dropped to 13-13 after a resumehurting loss to TCU on Wednesday, its sixth in seven games. Big Tenâ€™s tournament bubble fluctuating AP Karl-Anthony Towns and the Kentucky Wildcats face Auburn today. Auburn next up for UK SPORTS Saturday, February 21, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 LAS VEGAS (AP) â€” The Fight is finally on. Floyd Mayweather Jr. will meet Manny Pacquiao on May 2 in a welterweight showdown that will be boxingâ€™s richest fight ever. Mayweather himself announced the bout Friday after months of negotia tions, posting a picture of the signed contract online. â€œI promised the fans we would get this done and we did,â€ May weather said. The long anticipated bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas will almost surely break every finan cial record, and make both boxers richer than ever. Mayweather could earn $120 million or more, while Pacquiaoâ€™s split of the purse will likely be around $80 million. The fight, which matches box ingâ€™s two biggest attractions of recent years, has been in the mak ing for five years. It finally came together in recent months with both fighters putting aside past differ ences over various issues â€” includ ing drug testing and television rights â€” to reach agreement. Pacquiao was sleeping in the Philippines when the fight was announced, but his camp issued a statement saying the fans deserve the long awaited fight. â€œIt is an honor to be part of this historic event,â€ Pacquiao said. â€œI dedi cate this fight to all the fans who willed this fight to happen and, as always, to bring glory to the Philippines and my fellow Filipinos around the world.â€ While the fight rivals the 2002 heavyweight title bout between Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson for interest, it comes more than five years after the first real effort to put the fighters together in their prime. Most boxing observers believe both have lost some of their skills, though Mayweather remains a mas ter defensive fighter and Pacquiao showed in his last fight against Chris Algieri that he still has tremendous quickness in his hands. Still, Pacquiao is 36 and has been through many wars in the ring. And while Mayweather has been largely untouched in his career, he turns 38 on Tuesday. â€œI am the best ever, TBE, and this fight will be another opportunity to showcase my skills and do what I do best, which is win,â€ Mayweather said in his announcement. â€œManny is going to try to do what 47 before him failed to do, but he wonâ€™t be suc cessful. He will be No. 48.â€ Oddsmakers believe Mayweather will do just that, making him a 2 1/2-1 favorite in the scheduled 12-round bout. The fight is expected to do record business in Nevadaâ€™s legal sports books, with tens of millions wagered on the outcome. It will also do record business at the box office â€” with the MGM expected to be scaled far higher than the $20 million live gate for Mayweatherâ€™s 2013 fight with Canelo Alvarez. The pay-per-view revenue also is expected to be a record, though television executives said Fri day they had yet to actually fix a price for people to buy the fight at home. The fight will be televised as a joint venture between competing networks Showtime and HBO, which will share announcers with Jim Lampley and Al Bernstein report edly handling the task at ringside. Pacquiao began pushing hard for the fight after beating Algieri in November in Macau, and nego tiations picked up last month when the two fighters met by chance at a Miami Heat game. Itâ€™s on: Mayweather, Pacquiao to fight May 2
SPORT S Page C6 | The News Herald | Saturday, February 21, 2015 Saturday, February 21, 2015 | Daily News | Page B5 S p orts AP Alabamaâ€™s Bobby Wyatt practices his putting on the practice green under supervision of coach Jay Seawell at the NCAA national championship in Hutchinson, Kan., last season. NFL COMBINE The Associated Press Florida wonâ€™t be penal ized for former assistant football coach Joker Phillips having impermissible con tact with a recruit. The NCAA released its ruling Friday, saying the Gators handled the situa tion appropriately by tak ing corrective action and self-imposing penalties. A Division I Committee on Infractions panel assigned no additional penalties or measures. Florida suspended Phillips immediately last year and later parted ways with the former Kentucky head coach. Phillips is now working in the NFL as receivers coach for the Cleveland Browns. Without naming Phillips, the NCAA said the assistant coach had an impermissible off-campus recruiting con tact with the prospect. The contact occurred on the campus of the prospectâ€™s high school during January of the prospectâ€™s junior year. Florida did not mention Phillips by name, either, but heâ€™s the only coach who resigned last June. â€œThe University of Flor ida Athletic Association takes pride in the culture of compliance it has built over the years,â€ Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said in a statement. â€œIntegrity is one of the core values of our organiza tion â€” we act in a fair, ethi cal and honest manner and we strive to do things the right way every day. â€œThat is why we took quick and decisive action after we learned of a recruiting con tact rule violation involving one of our assistant football coaches in January 2014. â€œWe stopped recruiting the involved student-athlete, we removed the assistant coach from all recruiting activities and later secured his resignation. â€œWe thank the NCAA Committee on Infrac tions for their thoughtful deliberation. â€œWe look forward to putting this issue behind us and we will continue to operate with the high est level of integrity and compliance.â€ TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) â€” Golf is Jay Seawellâ€™s busi ness and just happens to be one of Nick Sabanâ€™s offseason pleasures. Itâ€™s high on Sabanâ€™s list of favorite escapes from the coaching grind. So itâ€™s no surprise that the two Alabama coaches â€” Saban, the gridiron leader and Seawell, the Crimson Tideâ€™s menâ€™s golf coach â€” have built a strong and mutually beneficial friendship. Seawell has given Saban tips on his golf swing â€” and shared one timely anecdote last season. Saban can offer Seawell counsel on the poten tially suffocating pressures of being a two-time defending national champion. Heâ€™s been there, done that. â€œWeâ€™re golf and I donâ€™t have the demands that he has, but there still is the pressures of it and the demands, and the extra stuff that goes with winning, which are good,â€ said Seawell, whose team has won the past two NCAA titles. â€œTheyâ€™re not bad but they do wear on you mentally, and the expectations do. After you build it, sometimes what you build can eat you, if youâ€™re not careful. â€œThatâ€™s what we kind of talk about.â€ During the offsea son, Saban sometimes heads from his office to the golf teamâ€™s practice facility to hit a few balls with Seawell and his players. Saban said heâ€™s one of the few people around he can talk with about â€œsome of the issues and problems that you have, just trying to be a good coach for your players.â€ Seawell even gave a fitting message last fall after popping into Sabanâ€™s fairway-sized office. He told of having his players watch â€œSecretariatâ€ after losing the NCAA championship match in 2012 and shared with Saban the line: â€œLet them run.â€ Saban imparted the mes sage to his own players, and mentioned it at a news confer ence as well. â€œI just thought our team was playing tight all the time and maybe worried about expecta tions and all that stuff early in the season,â€ said Saban, who won back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012. â€œWe lost to Ole Miss and played a hard game at Arkansas, and itâ€™s the first time I saw them show emotions. I just thought that was pretty fit ting what he said about just, â€˜Let them run.â€™ â€œThe horse ran a good race and we played a pretty good game after that so...â€ Alabama went from surviv ing 14-13 at Arkansas, which hadnâ€™t won a Southeastern Conference game, to obliterat ing No. 21 Texas A&M 59-0 and scoring 35 points in the second quarter alone. â€œI was really worried because heck, a golf coach is now getting talked about before the game,â€ Seawell said. â€œWhen they won 59-0, I felt like I was OK.â€ The two have actually only played a couple of rounds of golf together, but one was especially memorable for both. They were guests of Shoal Creek President Mike Thompson at Augusta National last spring. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â€” Jameis Winston responded to all the lingering questions with some bold answers. According to Winston, the character concerns that dogged him at Florida State are history. The comparisons to Johnny Man ziel are irrelevant. The supposed throwing shoulder injury is a nonissue. And anyone who thinks the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner canâ€™t be successful in the NFL is sorely mistaken. Now the leagueâ€™s decisionmakers must determine whether they believe the charismatic Flor ida State quarterback can pull it off. â€œWhat I do tell them is, â€˜I have to earn your trust,â€™ â€ Winston said. â€œI canâ€™t talk about situations or anything like that in the past but what I can do is prove to them and let you watch me grow into being the face of your franchise.â€ His arrival had been one of the most anticipated events all week in Indianapolis, especially after the scheduled Thursday appearance was pushed to Friday because of a longer-than-expected medical exam. Winston made sure it was worth the wait. After strutting to the podium, he flashed his big smile and started by acknowledging heâ€™d made mistakes and intended to clean things up. Winston talked about visiting children in Tallahassee, and the influence of his 7-year-old brother, calling them his inspiration to escape the tinge of trouble. He explained how he planned to win Super Bowls like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, downplaying the battle with 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota to go No. 1 in Aprilâ€™s draft. The biggest surprise came less than two hours after ESPN reported that doctors at the com bine were conducting additional tests on Winstonâ€™s throwing shoulder. The Associated Press Theyâ€™re off, and running on the road to the Kentucky Derby. The prep race season is in full swing with hundreds of 3-year-olds competing for one of 20 coveted spots in the starting gate at Churchill Downs on May 2. With just over 10 weeks to go before Derby Day, The Associated Press begins its weekly Run to the Roses list of Top 10 contenders, featuring a pair of colts each from the powerful stables of Bob Baffert and Todd Pletcher. Baffertâ€™s Dortmund gets the nod at No. 1. The chestnut colt is 4-for-4 after a gutsy victory in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita on Feb. 7. The threetime Derby winning trainer also has the No. 3 pick in American Pharoah, the 2-yearold male champion prepping for his next start, likely the Rebel at Oaklawn Park on March 14. Pletcher checks in at No. 4 with Breed ersâ€™ Cup Juvenile runner-up Carpe Diem and No. 6 with Withers winner Far From Over. Pletcher leads all trainers with 34 Triple Crown nominations. Breedersâ€™ Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red is No. 2, but an abscess in his right front foot could affect his Derby status. Baffert last won the Derby in 2002 with War Emblem, and heâ€™s 0-for-12 since. Just getting a horse to the race is an accom plishment. He often says itâ€™s not safe â€œuntil you put the saddle on them.â€ The Derby field is based on a points sys tem of 35 selected races. The field is limited to 20 starters. This weekendâ€™s preps are todayâ€™s Foun tain of Youth at Gulfstream Park and the Risen Star at the Fair Grounds, along with Sundayâ€™s Southwest at Oaklawn Park. Holy Bull winner Upstart â€” No. 5 on the list â€” is set for the Fountain of Youth. Among his challengers are Frosted, Gor geous Bird and Itsaknockout. Imperia, International Star and War Story are among 10 entered for the Risen Star. Hereâ€™s our top five: 1.

An article in Mother Jones magazine calls into question Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s accounts of his experiences as a CBS News correspondent covering the 1982 Falklands War between Great Britain and Argentina. The article, titled â€œBill Oâ€™Reilly Has His Own Brian Williams Problem,â€ attempts to paint Oâ€™Reilly with the same brush as the NBC News anchor who last week was suspended for six months for misrepresenting his experiences covering the Iraq War and is being investigated for questions that have arisen about other stories. â€œItâ€™s purely a political play to divert attention from the Williams situation,â€ Oâ€™Reilly said Thursday, adding that Mother Jones â€œtrumped up something from 33 years ago.â€ Oâ€™Reilly was a CBS News correspondent in 1981-82. The Mother Jones article focuses on Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s use of the word â€œwar zone,â€ citing his 2001 book, â€œThe No Spin Zone: Confrontations With the Powerful and Famous in America,â€ in which he wrote, â€œIâ€™ve reported on the ground in active war zones from El Salvador to the Falklands.â€ It also points to his Fox News show, â€œThe Oâ€™Reilly Factor,â€ when on a 2013 broadcast Oâ€™Reilly recalled rescuing his photographer â€œin a war zone in Argentina, in the Falkland Islands, where my photographer got run down and then hit his head and was bleeding from the ear on the concrete.â€ That took place in Buenos Aires during a violent demonstration following the 10-week Falklands War that killed more than 900 people.
