Wood guilty of killing retired game warden By CAROL KENT WYATT 703-9487 | @WCN_CarolWyatt BONIFAY — It took a jury just 56 minutes Thursday to find Zachary Taylor Wood guilty of murder in the killing of James William Shores last year. The six-man, six-woman jury found Wood guilty of first-degree murder, burglary while armed and robbery while armed. Wood was one of two defendants charged with Shores’ brutal killing at his family’s old homestead at 2842 Johnson Road near his home on Dauphin Road last April. A Washington County grand jury indicted Wood and Dillon Scott Rafsky in June. Washington County sheriff’s deputies discovered the 66-year-old Shores’ body while performing a welfare check at his property early on April 20. Deputies had received information from the Alabama Bureau of Investigation that a vehicle connected to the April 19 shooting of an Alabama state trooper was registered to Shores. The trooper in that case, Marcel Phillips, was treated and released from a hospital in Dothan for injuries he suffered in a gunfight after he stopped the vehicle for speeding. Investigators testified that Shores, a retired game warden, was found facedown with a gunshot wound to the head. His hands were bound behind him with a chain and his feet were tied together with a shirt. ZACHARY T. W OOD Husfelt: Tell lawmakers if you don’t like testing By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @CollinBreaux PANAMA CITY — On the heels of Gov. Rick Scott’s executive order to cancel 11th grade exams in English language arts, Bay District Schools Superintendent Bill Husfelt and educational staff issued a reminder Thursday that the larger issue is far from settled. “No test has ever made a student better,” Husfelt said at a press conference. Husfelt said he was concerned people would think the perceived problem of overtesting and teacher evaluations would be fixed with Scott’s order. He urged parents to talk to legislators if they believe testing and teacher evaluations must be changed. School testing begins next week and will continue until the end of the school year. Writing tests will be first, with reading and math to start in April. Different tests are taken for varying grades on different days, although sometimes they overlap. The amount of testing has come under criticism from parents and educators locally and across the state. During a January meeting of the local legislative delegation, several teachers and school administrators voiced their concerns about what they said was excessive testing. Husfelt said he is afraid of the stress on computers, worrying about an “Obamacare meltdown” when computers were turned on for testing. He also said every student learns differently, so tests don’t always accurately reflect achievement. “We want to be fairly accounted for,” Husfelt said. Camilla Hudson, Bay District Schools’ coordinator of assessment and accountability, said she also is a little concerned about the infrastructure in place for computerbased testing. Still, she added, “I feel we’re ready.” Setting It STRAIGHT A story on page A1 Sunday headlined “As seasons change jobs in flux” contained incomplete information about a crime incident. Sheila Fuith, who works at By the Sea Resorts in Panama City Beach, was working as a front desk clerk at a different resort when she was robbed at gunpoint.

Game with odd name growing in popularity By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn | T he sounds of balls being whacked, people yelling and sneakers squeaking on the wooden gym floor at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach can be heard from the outside. Inside, more than 50 people, mostly snowbirds but some locals, are enjoying a game of pickleball, one of the fastest-growing sports in the country. Invented in the mid-1960s as a children’s backyard pastime, it has become popular among adults in the past few years. So many people have taken up the sport at Frank Brown Park that players worry that they are running out of space. “There have been normally 70 to 80 people” each session, said Carl Gendece, a seasonal resident from St. Louis who used to teach tennis and now gives pickleball lessons at the park. “We’re almost to the point where we don’t really have enough room.” The game combines elements of tennis, table tennis and badminton. But Gendece said it isn’t difficult to learn. What is pickleball? Pickleball is a sport in which two, three or four players use paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a ball over a net. The ball is similar to a whife ball, only bigger. Pickleball is similar to other racquet sports. It has the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modications. The size of the court is 20-by-44 feet for both doubles and singles. The net is 36 inches high on the ends and 34 inches in the middle. The court is striped like a tennis court with no alleys. But the outer courts, and not the inner courts, are divided in half by service lines. The inner courts are non-volley zones and extend 7 feet from the net on either side. Serves in pickleball must be made from below the waist. Players rst must hit the ball twice off the ground and then can charge toward the net, but only up to the blue line 7 feet from the net. “From this line to the net is ‘the kitchen,’ whereas in tennis you can volley the ball anywhere you want to volley it,” said pickleball acionado Carl Gendece. “You can take it out of the air anywhere. In this game, it forces you to stay behind that line.” The rst team to 11 points wins. Top , Pickleball is a hot game at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach. Left , players wait for their games to start. P hotos by A NDREW W ARDLOW The News Herald SEE PICKLEB ALL | A9 SEE TES TING | A3 75 cents COM .

Page A2 | The News Herald | Friday, February 27, 2015 The Associated Press PHOENIX Police: Woman wearing headphones hurt by train Phoenix police said an inattentive woman wearing headphones and eating taquitos survived being run over by a train locomotive after ignoring its horn as well as bells and flashing lights at crossing signals. Sgt. Trent Crump said the woman was struck Thursday as she walked on railroad tracks near an intersection of three major streets. He said the woman was struck by the first of two engines and fell between the rails but escaped being hit by the wheels. Crump said the woman was seriously injured and taken to a hospital, where methamphetamine was found in her possession. Her identity was not released. Crump said that the engine’s horn and the crossing signals were tested and working properly and that the woman’s “inattention” apparently caused the crash. JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. Missouri auditor died of self-inflicted gunshot A staff member said Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich, a Republican candidate for governor, died of self-inflicted gunshot wound. A Thursday statement from Schweich’s spokesman confirmed that the 54-year-old had died. A staff member in the auditor’s office said Schweich had shot himself. The staff member spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly about the cause of death. Schweich had earlier been taken to the hospital after what his spokesman described as a “medical situation” at his home in the St. Louis suburb of Clayton. Schweich had served as state auditor since January 2011 and won re-election to a second, four-year term in November. He announced last month that he was seeking the GOP nomination for governor in 2016. SALEM, Ore. Ex-governor’s fiance sues to block email release Former Gov. John Kitzhaber’s fiance, Cylvia Hayes, has launched a legal fight to keep her private emails out of the public eye. Hayes filed a lawsuit against The Oregonian on Thursday asking a judge to rule that she is not required to turn over her emails to the newspaper. Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum found earlier this month that emails on Hayes’ private accounts that concern state business must be provided to The Oregonian under the state’s public records law. Hayes is at the center of an ethics scandal that led to Kitzhaber’s resignation last week. Her lawyer said in the lawsuit that releasing the emails would violate her privacy and her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The Associated Press BERLIN Life sentence for German nurse who killed patients A German court sentenced a male nurse to life in prison on Thursday for killing patients with overdoses of heart medication that he confessed to administering because he enjoyed trying to revive them. The Oldenburg regional court found the 38-year-old guilty of charges including two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder and another of serious bodily harm, court spokesman Daniel Moennich said. Prosecutors had accused the man, identified only as Niels H. in line with German privacy rules, of three murders and two attempted murders during his time working at a clinic in the town of Delmenhorst. “The court concluded that the accused used the heart medication to bring about a life-threatening situation in five cases, so as to make himself appear particularly competent when he revived them,” Moennich said. The defendant said during the trial that he intentionally brought about cardiac crises in some 90 patients because he enjoyed the feeling of being able to resuscitate them. He said 30 patients died, and expressed remorse for his actions. The court found he bore a “particular severity of guilt.” That means he won’t immediately have a chance of having his life sentence commuted to probation after 15 years, as is normal in Germany. Niels H. was previously sentenced to 7 years in prison for attempted murder in 2008. LA PAZ, Bolivia New Yorkers return stolen church paintings to Bolivia The discovery that two paintings held by a New York couple had been stolen from a Bolivian church in 2002 has ignited a search for 10 other colonial-era paintings that were taken in the theft, one the largest such crimes in the country’s history. The two paintings, “Escape to Egypt” and “Virgin of Candelaria,” were found in the collection of Richard and Roberta Huber, who contacted Bolivian officials after learning from a New York museum that the two large works had been reported stolen. The paintings, each about 6 feet high and more than 300 years old, were among 12 ecclesiastical artworks stolen in June 2002 from the San Martin church in the southern city of Potosi. Wilma Blazz, a city prosecutor in Potosi, said Thursday authorities would reopen their search for the items and would seek help from Brazil. The Hubers had purchased the paintings legally from an art gallery in Sao Paulo and restored them, Jessica Jordan, Bolivia’s consul general in New York, told the Cadena A television station in La Paz. The couple has agreed to return them, she said. AP Assyrians citizens hold placards during a sit-in Thursday for abducted Christians in Syria and Iraq, at a church in Sabtiyesh area east Beirut, Lebanon. Islamic State militants snatched more hostages from homes in northeastern Syria over the past three days, bringing the total number of Christians abducted to more than 220 in one of the largest hostage-takings by the extremist group, activists said Thursday. Arabic on the placard, right, reads, “you can burn the churches but you cannot burn our faiths, and in this faith we will rebuild the churches.” Abductions continue BEIRUT (AP) — Islamic State militants seized more Christians from their homes in northeastern Syria in the past three days, bringing the number abducted by the extrem ist group to more than 220, activists said Thursday. At the same time, the extremists also released a video showing the continued destruction of the heritage of the lands under their control. It depicted men using sledge hammers to smash ancient Mesopotamian statues and other artifacts in Iraq’s northern city of Mosul. The video, coinciding with mounting fears over the fate of the captive Christian Assyrians in Syria, sent a fresh wave of dread across the region, particularly among minorities who feel targeted by the group. “Daesh is wiping Assyrian heritage in Mosul, and at the same time wiping them geo graphically from the face of the Earth,” said Osama Edward, director of the Assyrian Net work for Human Rights in Syria. He referred to the Islamic State by its Arabic acronym. About 200 Assyrians and other Christians gathered in a church east of Beirut in solidar ity with the victims in Syria and Iraq. Some cried openly. One man held a banner that read: “We will not surrender, we will not be broken.” A few young men said they were preparing to go to Syria to fight and help their brethren defend their homes against the Islamic State group. The destruction of artifacts in the Mosul museum is part of a campaign by IS extrem ists who have destroyed a number of shrines — including Muslim holy sites — to elimi nate what they view as heresy. They also are believed to have sold ancient artifacts on the black market in order to finance their bloody campaign in the region. In the video released Thursday, militants used sledgehammers and drills to smash and destroy several large statues, which are then shown chipped and in pieces. The fiveminute video also shows a black-clad man at an archaeological site in Mosul, drilling through and destroying a winged-bull — an Assyrian protective deity — that dates to the 7th century B.C. The video was posted on social media accounts affiliated with the Islamic State group. Although it could not be independently verified by The Associated Press, it appeared to be authentic, based on knowledge of the Mosul Museum. A professor at the Archaeology College in Mosul confirmed to the AP that the two sites depicted in the video are the city museum and a location known as Nirgal Gate, one of several gates to the capital of the Assyrian Empire, Ninevah. “I’m totally shocked,” Amir al-Jumaili said by phone from outside of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city. “It’s a catastrophe. With the destruction of these artifacts, we can no longer be proud of Mosul’s civilization.” Islamic militants take more Christians from their homes, while destroying artifacts in Mosul ‘Jihadi John’ raised in UK, studied computers, reports say LONDON (AP) — The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked, knife-wielding mili tant in videos showing Western hostages being beheaded by the Islamic State group. A grow ing body of evidence suggests he is a Londonraised university graduate, described by one man who knew him as kind, gentle and humble. The Washington Post and the BBC on Thursday identied the British-accented mili tant from the chilling videos as Mohammed Emwazi, a man in his mid-20s who was born in Kuwait and raised in a modest, mixed-income area of West London. The Center for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence at King’s College Lon don, which closely tracks ghters in Syria, said it believed the identication was correct. Asim Qureshi of CAGE, a London-based advocacy group which works with Muslims in conict with British intelligence services, said he saw strong similarities between the man in the video and Emwazi, whom he knew from 2009 to 2012. But he said “I can’t be 100 percent certain.” “The guy’s got a hood on his head. It’s very, very difcult,” Qureshi said.

The jury also heard that the suspects poured a gaso line additive on Shores’ back and tried to light him on fire. Wood testified that he was afraid not to do as Raf sky said. He said Rafsky had beaten him a month earlier, shot him in the thigh the day before Shores’ killing and later tried to shoot him after exchanging gunfire with Phillips. Wood testified they had been riding dirt roads in a Jeep stolen from Rafsky’s then-girlfriend in Enterprise, Ala., when they became stuck on Shores’ property early the day of the killing. “(We were) riding down the dirt road and passed a house,” Wood said. “(Rafsky) put the Jeep in reverse and backed it up to an abandoned house, saying it was OK, that we were supposed to be there.” Wood said he and Rafsky entered the home and plun dered it. Shores showed up after they were back outside trying to free the Jeep. “(Shores) told us we needed to get off the property and that he would call the sheriff to pull us out. I said that would be wonderful. I was happy when Mr. Shores showed up.” Wood testified. Wood added that Shores drove behind the house and Rafsky followed him, where he began striking Shores in the head with a garden hoe. Wood testified he helped tie Shores’ feet with a shirt, but that was his only role in the crime. He also claimed he purposely left his wallet at the scene and swiped Shores’ debit card multiple times after the killing in hopes he and Rafsky would be tracked down. Walter Smith, Wood’s attorney, argued that his client was afraid of the codefendant, with whom Wood previously had a romantic relationship. He said Rafsky had “nothing to lose.” “(Wood) certainly felt like (Rafsky) was capable of killing him,” Smith told the jury. “Sometimes you can be made to do things you usually wouldn’t do because you’re afraid ” Smith noted that that Raf sky’s — not Wood’s — DNA was found on the murder weapon. However, Assistant State Attorney Larry Basford pointed to surveillance foot age from a Wal-Mart store that showed Wood using Shores’ debit card shortly after the murder. “When (Wood) was in Wal-Mart, he was happy-golucky, having no reservations about spending a dead man’s money,” Basford told the jury in his closing arguments. “Actions speak louder than words he wouldn’t hesi tate to do anything to help his best friend. He chose to help Dillon Rafsky.” Basford noted incon sistencies between Wood’s testimony and his recorded interview with investigators, which was played for the court. In that interview, Wood stated he “may have” hit Shores to “show (Rafsky) he wouldn’t snitch.” Wood testified at his trial that he never struck the victim. “This man was not truth ful with officers, and he was not truthful with us when he was testifying,” Basford said. After the verdict, Shores’ family said they were satisfied. “I feel like justice was served,” said Josiah Shores, James Shores’ son. “He got what he deserved and we are happy with the verdict.” A penalty phase hearing begins today to determine whether Wood will face the death penalty. Jurors will recommend either death or life in prison to Circuit Judge Christopher Patterson. Rafsky is scheduled to go to trial in May. 1129056 Struggling with Pr escription Painkillers?

Rick Scott’s executive order to reduce testing in Florida. TESTING from Page A1 Hudson said she thought it would be great if the current regimen of tests could be replaced by every high school student taking the ACT or SAT. Still, Hudson and Husfelt said it was a big relief that testing in 11th grade has been eliminated. “We want to thank” Gov. Rick Scott, Husfelt said. Mowat Middle School teacher Diane Wishart, who is also is president of the Association of Bay County Educators, said there is not enough time for students to get through the computer labs for testing. Wishart said the $94 million the state put into testing could go to classrooms and lessen the student-teacher ratio. Wishart also said she would like to go back to paper-based tests. Current tests can have multiple right answers, with students not receiving partial credit on them if they don’t select all the right answers, Wishart said. Students who don’t test well can hurt teachers because test results are tied to teacher evaluations, she added. Wishart also said students likely can do better on the tests than legislators. “I would like for those people in Tallahassee to take these tests,” she said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Inter net activists declared victory over the nation’s big cable companies Thursday, after the Federal Com munications Commission voted to impose the toughest rules yet on broadband service to prevent companies like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T from creating paid fast lanes and slowing or blocking web traffic. The 3-2 vote ushered in a new era of government oversight for an industry that has seen relatively little. It represents the biggest regulatory shake-up to telecom munications providers in almost two decades. The new rules require that any company providing a broadband connection to your home or phone must act in the “public interest” and refrain from using “unjust or unreasonable” business practices. The goal is to prevent providers from striking deals with content providers like Google, Netflix or Twitter to move their data faster. “Today is a red-letter day for Internet freedom,” said FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, whose remarks at Thursday’s meeting frequently prompted applause by Internet activists in the audience. President Barack Obama, who had come out in favor of net neutrality in the fall, portrayed the decision as a victory for democracy in the digital age. In an online letter, he thanked the millions who wrote to the FCC and spoke out on social media in sup port of the change. “Today’s FCC decision will protect innovation and create a level playing field for the next gen eration of entrepreneurs — and it wouldn’t have happened without Americans like you,” he wrote. Verizon saw it differently, using the Twitter hashtag #Throwback Thursday to draw attention to the FCC’s reliance on 1934 legislation to regulate the Internet. Like wise, AT&T suggested the FCC had damaged its reputation as an independent federal regulator by embracing such a liberal policy. “Does anyone really think Wash ington needs yet another partisan fight? Particularly a fight around the Internet, one of the great est engines of economic growth, investment and innovation in his tory?” said Jim Cicconi, AT&T’s senior executive vice president for external and legislative affairs. Net neutrality is the idea that websites or videos load at about the same speed. That means you won’t be more inclined to watch a particular show on Amazon Prime instead of on Netflix because Ama zon has struck a deal with your service provider to load its data faster.

Vilsack told members of Congress on Wednesday that consumers could just use their phones to scan special bar codes or other symbols on food packages in the grocery store. All sorts of information could pop up, such as whether the food’s ingredients include genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. “Industry could solve that issue in a heartbeat,” Vilsack said during a House hearing on agriculture spending. The Food and Drug Administration handles most food-package labeling, so Vilsack’s idea isn’t an official proposal. But the Agriculture secretary suggested it could head off the debate between the food industry and those who have pushed for package labels that identify GMOs. He has mentioned the idea for bar codes before, but he said it could have new life as Congress becomes more involved in the issue. A Republican House bill would block state efforts to require GMO package labels, legislation that was introduced just as Vermont became the first state to require the labeling in 2014. That law will go into effect next year if it survives a legal challenge from the food industry. Labeling advocates aren’t signing on to Vilsack’s idea. Scott Faber, head of the national Just Label It campaign, said most consumers don’t have the know-how to use their phones to scan a bar code or socalled QR code, a commonly used scannable image. “Consumers shouldn’t have to have a hightech smartphone and a 10-gigabyte data plan to know what’s in their food,” Faber said. In response to those concerns, Vilsack has said in the past that there could also be in-store scanners, like those that check prices now. Vilsack said some food companies have been receptive to the idea, though he didn’t name any. There’s some indication that food companies are mulling something similar. A spokesman for the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents the food industry, said the group is “actively discussing ways to further provide consumers with this important information.” Jeff Beckman, a spokesman for The Hershey Co., said the company is working on new ways it can make ingredient and nutrition information “more readily accessible through new technologies.” A spokeswoman for Nestle said that company is also part of a larger food industry discussion on the topic. Phones could scan food Vandalism in Arizona shows the Internet’s vulnerability FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Com puters, cellphones and landlines in Arizona were knocked out of service for hours, ATMs stopped working, 911 systems were disrupted and businesses were unable to pro cess credit card transactions — all because vandals sliced through a fiber-optic Internet cable buried in the rocky desert. The Internet outage did more than underscore just how depen dent modern society has become on high technology. It raised ques tions about the vulnerability of the nation’s Internet infrastructure. Alex Juarez, a spokesman for Internet service provider Centu ryLink, said the problem was first reported around noon Wednesday, with customer complaints pouring in from an area extending from the northern edges of Phoenix to cit ies like Flagstaff, Prescott, Page and Sedona. Service began coming back within a few hours and was reported fully restored by about 3 a.m. Thursday. CenturyLink blamed vandalism, and police are investigating. The severed CenturyLink-owned cable — actually, a set of cables bun dled together in a black conduit a few inches in diameter — was buried several feet under the rocky soil in a dry wash, about a quarter-mile from the nearest houses. Investigators believe the van dals were looking for copper wire — which can fetch high prices as scrap — but didn’t find any after cutting all the way through the cable, probably with power tools, Phoenix police spokesman Officer James Holmes said. “Your average house saw and wire cutters wouldn’t do it,” Holmes said. He said the damage was esti mated at $6,000. As the outage spread, Centu ryLink technicians began the long, tedious process of inspecting the line mile by mile. They eventually located the cut in the cable and spliced it back together. CenturyLink gave no estimate of how many people were affected, but the outage was far-reaching because other cellphone, TV and Internet providers use the cable, too, under leasing arrangements with the company. Such networks often have built-in redundancies that allow data to be rerouted if a cable is cut or dam aged. But there was no such backup in this case. Mark Goldstein, secretary for the Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council, said the prob lem is that large swaths of the out age area are a mishmash of federal lands under the control of different agencies. “You can’t just like go through the mountains and bury fiber. Part of the problems have to do with land ownership in Arizona. So much land is Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service or tribal,” Goldstein said. Joseph Hobbs, who does contract work in telecommunications in the Phoenix area and is on the board of the Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council, said that creating backup systems and elec tronic monitoring to instantly detect breaches in the fiber-optic cables could be costly but could prevent widespread outages and shorten to less than a second the time it takes to restore service. The cable that was severed isn’t hard to spot because the trenching machines used to bury it leave a scar on the landscape, he said. “ You can’t just like go through the mountains and bury fiber. Part of the problems have to do with land ownership in Arizona. So much land is Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service or tribal.” Mark Goldstein Secretary for the Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market largely shrugged off the Federal Communications Commission’s vote to impose tougher rules on broadband providers like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T to prevent them from creating paid fast lanes for the Internet and slowing or blocking web trafc. Market response to the new regulations was muted, however, probably because the adoption of the new rules had been expected. And the FCC’s decision is expected to trigger industry lawsuits that could take several years to resolve before changes take effect. Comcast Corp. shares dipped 47 cents to close at $59.15. Time Warner Cable Inc. shares fell $2.22 to end at $155.95. Verizon Communications Inc. shares rose 17 cents to $49.37. AT&T Inc. shares closed up 29 cents to $34.50.

Page A8 | The News Herald | Friday, February 27, 2015 Viewpoints Campus gun bill gets an F I t is significant that the people in authority who are most responsible for keeping college campuses safe, and who know the most about potential dangers students face, are overwhelmingly opposed to the guns-on-campus bill some Florida lawmakers are pushing toward passage. The bill (SB 176) would allow individuals with concealed-firearm licenses to carry guns at state colleges and universities, overturning a longtime ban on concealed weapons on campus. The Senate Criminal Justice Committee approved the bill last week on a 3-2 vote. The vote, according to the News Service of Florida, came “despite opposition by the university system’s Board of Governors, university police chiefs and the 12 public universities.” So the people most knowledgeable about the likely effects of guns on campus don’t want guns on campus. Why, then, do some legislators? For Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, sponsor of the bill, the big selling point is the idea that gun-toting people on a college campus could step in and stop violence. Sometimes that works. Usually it doesn’t. Last year, a crazed couple in Las Vegas ambushed and killed two police officers who were having lunch. An armed civilian named Joseph Wilcox confronted the assailants. He was shot dead. Mr. Wilcox’s death “should give pause to any who insist that having more armed citizens is the best defense against a would-be killer,” syndicated columnist Kathleen Parker observed. “Even if one person were to stop a killer in his tracks, it is not logical to extrapolate the occasional success story as proof of the argument.” That might have been what Marjorie Sanfilippo, a psychology professor, had in mind last week when she referred to “mere speculation and ignorance of statistical probability” underlying the arm-the-students argument. “Proponents will tell you that allowing conceal-carry will protect female students from sexual assault,” she added. “I will point out the obvious: You’ll be arming the assailants, too.” One can support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms while opposing legislation that needlessly exposes young people to firearm dangers. BILL D A Y | Cagle Cartoons A s things now stand, the U.S. Department of Agriculture oversees steaks, chicken thighs and eggs out of their shells. The Food and Drug Administration keeps an eye on salmon, apples and eggs in their shells. Fifteen government entities now supervise food safety, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (seafood). President Obama wants to consolidate all these food monitoring functions in a yet-to-be-created Food Safety Administration. Makes sense. It’s not unusual to find inspectors from several agencies trooping through the same processing plants and other facilities. Some duplicate what others are doing — or don’t do what they think others are doing — or do what the person who came through the week before could have done. Streamlining food safety also could save the taxpayers and consumers some money. This could be done with no loss — and perhaps some improvement — in this country’s admirable food safety record. But that may not stop food alarmists from sowing panic. There’s a business in spreading fear about what we eat, often promoting myths of danger — much as the anti-vaccination movement has done. And there are government employees who see their jobs as threatened. Of Obama’s proposal, a USDA inspector and the head of a government meat inspectors union complained, “This would drag us down to (the FDA’s) minuscule standards.” What a good opportunity to revisit the nonexistent mad cow crisis of 10 years ago. Mad cow disease affects the animal’s brain and spinal cord. Americans don’t generally eat those parts, which is one reason the few who died from the infected cows were mostly Europeans. The other reason is that almost no American cow had the disease. At the time of maximum hysteria, only one cow, in Washington state, was found to be infected — and it had come from Canada. Nonetheless, columnist Paul Krugman spoke of a “declining credibility of U.S. food regulation” and asked, “How did America find itself back in The Jungle?” That was a reference to Upton Sinclair’s 1906 expos of Chicago meat processors. Eric Schlosser, author of “Fast Food Nation,” wrote that mad cow disease “confronts the United States with perhaps its most serious and complex food-safety threat.” Actually, no one — not one person — had ever contracted the human variant of mad cow disease by eating from an American cow before then (or has since). But in a 2004 op-ed for The New York Times, Schlosser jumped all over the USDA secretary’s spokeswoman for issuing a press release titled “Mad Cow Disease Not a Problem in the U.S.” This was not about reality, not any more than are the reports of vaccines causing profound mental disorders in children. If one dislikes the aesthetics of industrialized food production, if one objects to mistreatment of many farm animals, if one does not care to eat meat — we hear you. But keep the arguments honest. They are rarely about food safety. For the record, fruits and vegetables typically account for twice as many cases of food poisoning in this country as does meat, according to the CDC. In recent years, though 29 percent of the foodborne illnesses leading to death have come from eating meat, 23 percent have been tied to produce. Americans aren’t great at assessing risks. Social media magnify the significance of anecdotes, and many stories, even untrue ones, go viral because they are colorful. Any plans to change the system for keeping food safe will bring out a variety of economic interests. Bear in mind that some of the economic interests have nothing to do with food production. New food agency? Hold the hysteria Our V IEW A quote directly from the Feb. 13 News Herald’s article concerning Erik Cobb’s suspension: Cobb explained he entered his classroom to find his students engaged in all manner of inappropriate behaviors. A student was dragging another out of a chair by the neck and others were throwing plastic bottles, according to Cobb. Three girls were sitting at their table with their cellphones out, putting make-up on. ‘Needless to say, I was not impressed,’ Cobb said. Earlier in the article the offending letter was posted in a response to students putting gum under the tables. A student using the same language to the teacher would likely get a far greater punishment than four days’ suspension without pay. When I was a classroom high school teacher I didn’t allow my students to chew gum in class and yes, of course they did anyway and when caught, they scraped the bottoms of tables. Rarely did they get caught more than once. My students weren’t allowed to use their cellphones in my classroom because they knew I would take them up, and if my students were in the classroom, so was I. It’s a novel concept in education called being in control. My question to those who support Mr. Cobb and to Mr. Cobb himself is: Do classroom management skills ring a bell? I was and still am all for expanding a student’s intellectual horizon and I gave my students a lot of leeway to accommodate their specific learning modalities, but in every class and with every student, I was the teacher and they were the learner. These were appropriate roles for each of us. This is not Mr. Cobb’s first or even second situation where he has been reprimanded for either offensive or inappropriate comments to his students. I don’t understand why he is still in a classroom, or as it sounds by his own admission, a horror story. At the very least a part of his punishment should have been the completion of the Fred Jones Tools for Teaching, program especially the part called, Positive Classroom Discipline. Needless to say, I too am not impressed. C H RIS C A LO HAN Lynn Haven First Amendment control For all you gun control advocates out there, let’s do a little ‘what if’ scenario. Now, the Second Amendment states that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Now Congress has found ways to apply all kinds of rules to the Second Amendment and say they aren’t infringing on our right to bear arms what so ever, even though in some cities they have outright banned the ownership of firearms. (Chicago, Washington D.C., New York City.) But remember that does not infringe on the people’s right to bear arms. Let’s attack their First Amendment rights the same way. If you have been convicted of a felony, you lose your First Amendment rights. If you are accused of domestic violence, you lose your First Amendment rights. If you want to write a letter to your local newspaper or elected official, you must get a permit and go through a training class on the use of proper letter writing techniques and the dangers of stabbing someone with a pen or pencil or hurting someone’s feeling with your words. You cannot protest without a permit. This permit once applied for and after you submit your finger prints and are subjected to a background check and pay anywhere from $100-200 you will receive your permit within four to six weeks which will be good for six years. All pens and pencils must be approved by the government agency BoPPC. (Bureau of Pens and Pencils). You say, but these are guaranteed to me under the First Amendment. I know that this sounds ridiculous, but, how long would it take before the gun control advocates would start yelling, you can’t take away my First Amendment rights? About 30 seconds. But yet they will stand right there and try to take away everyone’s Second Amendment rights and think nothing about it. Kinda hypocrital isn’t it?

FROM THE FRONT Friday, February 27, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A9 PICKLEBALL from Page A1 “If you have just a little bit of hand-eye coordination, you can do it,” he said. Gendece said he plays often because he enjoys the exercise and competition. “It was a lot kinder way to transition from tennis to a different sport,” he said. He said pickleball is a great alternative for someone who is getting older and might be struggling to play tennis on a larger court. “A lot of the baby boomers and that group have played tennis and just have found that physically it’s a much harder game to continue to play,” Gendece said. He said pickleball also is less expensive than indoor tennis. “If you are playing tennis indoors, you are playing at expensive clubs,” he said. “With this, you can play at recreation centers. They charge us $3 a person to play.” The game is addictive, said Linda Przytarski of Grand Rapids, Mich. “It’s good exercise, but it’s like you are not exercising,” she said. “Every person I know who has started playing pickleball loves it. For us to get exercise is how you get longevity for life.” Pat Guest, a snowbird from Canada, said people who have played racquet sports pick up pickleball quickly, but it doesn’t take long for those who haven’t to catch on. “It’s phenomenal,” she said. “It’s supposed to be the fastest-growing sport in North America.” The game has many similarities to tennis, but the court is smaller, which makes it easier for seniors, Guest said. “So more people can play it as you get older. You don’t run as much,” she said. Pat Gibson, another snowbird from Canada, said she’s been playing a couple years. She did not play tennis previously. “The most difficult part of this is returning a good serve,” she said. “Some people can just whiz it and it just barely goes over the net with good spin on it, which makes it go a different way than you think.” Gibson said the sport is popular in Canada because it can be played indoors in the winter. Barb Laramie, a Canadian snowbird who helped get the game going at Frank Brown Park a few years ago, said there were only a few players initially. “I put an ad on their bulletin board here at Frank Brown Park with my phone number,” she said. “I got a few calls. People started coming out, showing people how to play. They started coming out with their paddles. The other day we had about 70 people show up. It’s really catching on. It’s caught on more this year. It’s a sport that has taken off. Once you start to play it, you’re hooked.” Jim Ponek, the director of Parks and Recreation for Panama City Beach, said the number of pickleball players has been growing so much that they made it into two sessions a day three days a week. “The group got bigger this year,” he said. Cheryl Joyner, recreation administration supervisor for the Beach, said the Boys and Girls Club uses the basketball court after the pickleball games. During the summer months, the club will need the court all day, but Parks and Recreation might offer pickleball at night. Joyner said Panama City Beach is not the only place where pickleball is gaining popularly. “We hear that down south at The Villages, the retirement community, they’ve got about 100 courts,” she said. “And they want more. It will be interesting for us to see what happens after the winter residents go. I think we’re getting some locals (playing), so maybe it will continue.” Left , pickleball is played in the gym at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach. Below , Barb Laramie plays pickleball.

Just look at it strutting its stuff. Wanted to get to the other side just to show off. Most roads in Panama City are terrible! Is there a paving plan or not? Get these sorry roads repaired before any marina. I thought I saw a spring breaker drinking a coffee. I saw a couple today, yeah spring breakers, as they are here early. Their grandparents most have taught them about the early bird specials. Ready or not, here they come. I am so looking forward to squalling about sunburn. Arrested for failure to register as a criminal. Now, isn’t that just like a criminal?! Sports Village sounds perfect. They were a big deal in the ’80s. Drill baby, drill. Next we’ll see spill baby spill. That’s OK, of course. Who cares about fish, birds, impact on the environment? Oil crazy. We sit on black gold and beg for high paying jobs. How myopic. To the individual who ran over my mailbox last night: I’m in a wheelchair and don’t have money to fix it. Now what do I do? Panama City Beach is nonstop fun. Trust me. Anyone who thinks Spring Break was mild in during the 1950s is probably new to our area. They certainly weren’t there. I’ve noticed that a lot of people have let their blinker fluid get low. Can’t tell which direction they are heading! Going out in that cold downpour last night made me mighty grateful for our warm, dry home to return to. It’s a safe bet the money wasted by the TDC for a “sports village” will be for tourists, not for citizens. Another waste of our tax money. By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack PANAMA CITY — The five state correctional officers who were arrested in connection with an orchestrated prison beating have pleaded not guilty in federal court. However, prosecutors have said the attack on Jeremiah L. Tatum, 31, was a planned act of jailhouse retaliation. Former Florida Department of Corrections (DOC) officers William Finch, James Perkins, Robert Miller, Christopher Christmas and Dalton Riley appeared Thursday in the U.S. District Court. They have been indicted on charges of violating Tatum’s civil rights, including the right not to endure cruel and unusual punishment, at the Northwest Florida Reception Center (NWFRC) in Washington County on Aug. 5. Each of the two counts carry a 10year prison sentence. A trial date has been set for April. According to the indictment filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the attack allegedly was orchestrated by former Capt. James Kirkland as retaliation against Tatum, who was severely injured. Kirkland was found dead in December from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Unruly inmates at the NWFRC usually are subdued in their cells with intermittent treatments of pepper spray, according to court documents. Days before the beating, Tatum had been deemed unruly Ex-guards plead not guilty to beating DALTON RILEY CHRISTOPHER CHRISTMAS ROBERT MILLER JAMES PERKINS WILLIAM FINCH SEE EX-GUARDS | B2 By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn PANAMA CITY BEACH — The city would be able to put the costs of cleaning up nuisance properties along Front Beach Road on owners’ property tax bills under a series of resolutions being considered. The City Council approved one of them, a resolution to allow the city to use the uniform method to collect nuisance abatement non-ad valorem assessments, on Thursday. Two more resolutions must be approved to establish the resolution program, Assistant City Attorney Amy Myers said. She said the resolution would allow the city over the summer, if need be, to levy the assessment on property tax bills for nuisance abatement expenditures the city has paid for this year. One of those bills is the $115,000 or so the city shelled out to demolish the aged Beach Club Motel. The city could levy the new assessment to recoup those costs and attorneys’ fees if the property owner doesn’t pay the bill. Over the summer, the city covered the costs of demolishing the motel, which has been closed and fenced off for at least four years. Without the assessment process, the city had the option of putting a lien on the property to collect for demolition costs, which could involve a lengthy foreclosure process. Myers said when the council had the discussion about implementing the assessments last year, it decided only to allow them in the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) corridor. Mayor Gayle Oberst said the city only included the CRA in the assessment collection zone because that’s where the major nuisance violations occur. “Our thinking was that in the subdivisions it’s like lawn mowing, and those kind of things” that are a nuisance, “and it’s too small to put on the tax bill,” Gisbert said. Councilman Keith Curry asked legal staff whether the city should be concerned about being accused of going after one property owner by passing an assessment law. “What we are going to use this for obviously is Beach Club Motel. Have we painted ourselves into a corner here where they can scream foul that we just did this to go after them specifically?” he said. Myers said she doesn’t think the property owner would have a case. “It will be applicable to any property that the city has performed nuisance abatement activities,” she said. The assessment method would make collecting the money simpler and easier, city attorneys said. Refinancing Also Thursday, the council approved refinancing bonds to pay for improvements to the Front Beach Road project that would save PCB looks to put property cleanup costs on tax bills “Our thinking was that in the subdivisions it’s like lawn mowing, and those kind of things” that are a nuisance, “and it’s too small to put on the tax bill.” — Mario Gisbert city manager SEE PROPERTY CLEANUP | B2 By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack PANAMA CITY — Authorities have released the testimony of an attorney who was ordered to testify against his own client during a murder trial. Darryl Mack, 22, pleaded no contest last week in exchange for 20 years in prison after he learned his initial attorney in the case would testify against him. At a hearing in December, Mack objected to the disclosure of his attorney-client privileged conversations. However, Circuit Court Judge James Fensom ruled those statements could be used against him at trial. Prosecutor Bob Sombathy said situations in which an attorney would be ordered to testify against a client are extremely rare, but only as rare as a client telling his lawyer about plans to commit a homicide. “The last thing a lawyer wants to do is testify against his client,” Sombathy said. “But it is not reasonable to ask your lawyer to be your conspirator.” Timothy Hilley, Mack’s initial attorney, testified in a closed courtroom that Mack had threatened the life of a witness to the July shooting death of 24-year-old Tavish Greene, who was a murder witness himself. Hilley said at the end of a jailhouse interview about the knowledge of the witness, Mack allegedly asked what Lawyer’s testimony released after client’s plea DARRYL MACK SEE TESTIMONY | B2 HEALTH EXPO ON THE WEB For a related photo gallery, visit .

Page B2 | The News Herald | Friday, February 27, 2015 WEATHER and Kirkland tried to use pepper spray on him. Tatum blocked those efforts and the pepper spray got on Kirkland, investigators reported. Kirkland was in charge on the night of the beating. Finch was listed as the assis tant officer in charge. Moments before the inci dent, Kirkland taunted Tatum in his cell to elicit “disruptive behaviors,” which worked, accord ing to court documents. Finch and Kirkland applied two rounds of pepper spray on Tatum in his cell, and Kirkland called in the five-man extradition team to escort him to a decon tamination shower, prosecutors allege. As the officers equipped themselves for the extradition, Kirkland allegedly told them he would say that Tatum spit on him to prompt the beating “to teach him a lesson,” accord ing to court records. Video from the prison showed Tatum’s hands and ankles were restrained when he was being slammed face first to the concrete floor by Finch and Riley. The three other officers then jumped on Tatum and pinned him to the ground, according to arrest records. Finch and Kirkland then allegedly falsified reports from Riley to say that Tatum had spit on Kirkland, although each of the subordinate officers later told inves tigators that Kirkland planned the attack. EX-GUARDS from Page B1 the city $4.2 million in interest costs during the next 16 years, city finan cial adviser Jay Glover said. Glover recommended the coun cil approve refinancing with Regions Bank and accept the 2.7 percent loan. The vote was 4-1, with Councilman Keith Curry dissenting. The refinancing will cut about $275,000 from the city’s annual pay ment of about $3.8 million, Glover said. That savings on interest will give the city more money to speed up the beautification and road improvements on Front Beach Road, city officials said. In particular, the money could help quicken Phase 2 of the project from South Thomas Drive to Richard Jackson Boulevard. The council would not be locked into the loan with Regions until a final loan agreement is approved at a later date. Curry said after the meeting that he supports refinancing but he wanted more research done before commit ting to Regions Bank. “I believe it was fast-track just for one bank, and our due diligence hasn’t been done,” he said. “We just had a couple of weeks from when it was presented.” In other action Thursday, the council: Approved and forwarded into its budget $150,000 from the Tourist Development Council for additional security during Spring Break. Agreed to apply for a $1 million grant under the state’s Transporta tion Regional Management program to improve Front Beach Road from Rich ard Jackson Boulevard to Hutchinson Boulevard. Voted to amend the Land Devel opment Code to streamline the pro cess for businesses to designate outdoor eating areas. The change would allow staff to give approval instead of having businesses go through a conditional use permit process. Planning Director Mel Leonard said some restaurants had balked at creat ing the outdoor eating areas because of the time and expense. PROPERTY CLEANUP from Page B1 would happen if the witness was unavailable for the trial. “Mack was on his way to leave, and he walked over to door and he said, ‘Could those statements be used if he was murdered,’ ” Hilley testified. “I said, ‘No, it would be hear say,’ ” he said of Mack’s right to face his accuser at trial. Mack then responded, “How much time do I have?” Hilley said. “And I didn’t catch it at first, but then he asked again, ‘How long before trial?’ ” Hilley said Mack left the room after he told him the trial could begin as soon as June. Hilley then reported the incident to the State Attor ney’s Office because Greene had been a witness to a murder himself. Mack was arrested with Tyricka Woullard, 20, last July. They had fled to Covington, Ga., as police discovered Greene’s body in the trunk of a 2004 Chevy Malibu behind an abandoned home on East Eighth Court on July 24. Police said Greene’s was killed after a robbery involving Mack, Woullard and Dontavis Thomas. Thomas, 22, pleaded no con test to being an accessory to Greene’s murder and agreed to five years of probation for his testimony. Thomas had particularly damaging testimony against Mack. Although Mack did not hame Thomas, Sombathy said the threat was directed him. “This isn’t a random theo retical discussion. This was specifically following up the statements of Thomas,” Som bathy said. “We’re talking about a specific person who provides damaging testimony against Mack. He mentions murder and asks how much time he has.” Hilley was removed from the case and Albert Sauline III replaced him as Mack’s attor ney. Sauline argued that it was too generalized of a statement and that Mack never mentioned Thomas by name. “There was never any plot discussed to have any witness in this case murdered,” Sauline said. “It was simply a question of ‘what if.’ No name was ever said.” However, Fensom sided with the prosecution and ordered Hilley to testify against Mack at trial. The decision was revealed moments before Mack accepted the plea deal. Woullard’s case is pend ing. She recently has been ordered to undergo compe tency evaluations before her case proceeds.

This year, the terms of the debate have changed. Even as former Gov. Jeb Bush bases a potential presidential candi dacy on his work ushering in more accountability for Florida schools, Republicans in the Legislature are looking to roll back the testing regime that Bush helped promote during and after his time in office. Speaking in February at a summit hosted by the Foundation for Florida’s Future —an organization founded by Bush —Gov. Rick Scott referred to the complaints of parents, teach ers and students about the number of exams administered in public schools. “They think we should do more learning and do less testing, and I agree with them,” he said. Fueling the turnaround, say long time critics of the state’s testing sys tem, is a parental uprising that has spread through social media and has amplified the complaints of groups like the Florida Education Association, the state’s largest teachers union. “Opt out” groups have begun sprouting, advocating a form of civil disobedi ence against the statewide tests. “The difference between now and before?” FEA President Andy Ford said. “Parents are now frustrated with the system.” “I think it’s really a bottom-up, bub bling-up type of issue,” said House Minority Leader Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach. “ ... All politics is local and I think they’ve done a very good job of grabbing the attention of Republican leadership.” How Florida got into its current sit uation is, depending on the source of information, either the fault of Repub lican lawmakers and governors or the responsibility of overzealous local school districts. As they attempt to revise their position on testing, figures in the GOP have generally cast local districts as a key part of the problem. “From the time I came into this job, as I met and did roundtables with teachers, here’s what I heard a lot: I heard, ‘Oh the state requires this, the state requires this,’ “ Scott told report ers recently. “And I always made sure I took somebody from the Department of Education with me, because, often that was not accurate. Some things are required at the district level.” In his remarks to the foundation summit in February, Bush took a simi lar tack in both defending the testing regime while calling for lawmakers to consider changes. Testing debate shifts for Republicans

Conservancy aims to purge problem plant By AMANDA BANKS 522-5118 | @pcnhamanda PANAMA CITY — The Bay County Conservancy will host its second annual Air Potato Roundup and Trash Bash on Saturday. The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon at Audubon Nature Preserve behind Panama City Orthopedics at 408 W. 19th St. It is held in conjunction with National Invasive Species Awareness Week. “We try to make it fun,” said Teresa Nooney, the conservan cy’s executive assistant. Nooney said the group will offer prizes for the biggest potato, strangest-looking and more. The air potato is a non-native, invasive vine that is spreading through Florida and destroying native habitat, officials said. The rapid-growing vine produces aerial tubers that fall to the ground in the late fall and winter and produce new vines that sprout in the spring. The plant is cultivated for food in West Africa, but the form invading Florida is not edible, officials said. Each vine can produce up to 200 potatoes. “They’re poisonous, so we have no use for them,” Nooney said. “We encourage people not to plant them.” Nooney said part of the problem is that with its heartshaped leaves, people often think the vine is pretty and want to plant it. “We just want to make people aware this is a problem,” Nooney said. Officials with the conservancy said prevention as a “key step” to manage the air potato population. Each potato can sprout to form new plants; removal of potatoes helps eradicate small populations. Volunteers are welcome at Saturday’s roundup. No experience is necessary. Gardening gloves and rubber boots are recommended. Buckets to gather potatoes and trash bags to collect litter on the site will be provided. For more information, contact Nooney at 850-814-4755 or conservancy president Candis Harbison at 850-872-8260. M Y FWC. C O M The air potato was introduced to Florida in 1905.

Gambling. Pot. Alcohol wars. Many of this legislative session’s thorniest issues —and more —rest in the hands of Sen. Rob Bradley, a laid-back junior legislator and chairman of a committee dubbed by Senate President Andy Gardiner as the “Thunderdome.” Bradley, 44, chuckles when asked about the Regulated Industries Committee’s moniker, a reference to the on-screen arena for post-apocalyptic steel-cage brawls. “There are a lot of strong personalities on the committee. And it’s kind of a bareknuckles political discussion about a lot of issues with a lot of people involved in the issues that have been in this process for a long time,” the Fleming Island Republican said in a recent interview. It’s no accident that Gardiner tapped Bradley to oversee some of the most complex and contentious subjects facing the Legislature during the session that kicks off Tuesday. Bradley, a lawyer who specializes in advising local governments, has earned a reputation in two short years in the Legislature for his political and policy acumen, and his willingness to tackle tricky items many wish would just go away. “He’s one of the most capable legislators I’ve ever seen. It’s kind of scary sometimes,” said lobbyist Travis Blanton, who is close to Bradley. “You have some people who come in who are uber-smart. They don’t understand the political dynamics of how to do stuff. Then you have some that are really good at the politics. He’s got a perfect mix of both.” Bradley’s talents as a mediator will be put to the test as he tries to reach consensus in a high-stakes gambling debate starring outof-state operators, the Seminole Tribe and Florida pari-mutuels. Also, he will oversee a throw-down over beer and booze and a reexamination of the non-euphoric cannabis bill approved by lawmakers last year but yet to be implemented. “I just have a tremendous amount of confidence in Sen. Bradley,” Gardiner, ROrlando, told The News Service of Florida. “There really isn’t much that I wouldn’t give to Rob and not have complete confidence that he’s going to figure it out. I think that’s a universal sentiment of Rob. He’s a good negotiator. He’s fair. And in Thunderdome, you’ve got to be fair. I think he’s going to do pretty well with it.” Elected in 2012, Bradley already has racked up a boatload of “legislator of the year” awards from organizations including the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida Clerks and Comptrollers Association and the Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association, as well as other top recognitions from the Florida League of Cities and the Florida Association of Counties and others. Behind Bradley’s boyish charm and dimpled smile lies a no-nonsense negotiator who cut his teeth as a prosecutor before going into private practice, where he specializes in brokering complicated disputes involving local governments. “He has an unbelievable demeanor and is one of the fairest and most considerate people, whether you agree or disagree. We should clone him,” said Tallahassee lobbyist Gary Rutledge, whose clients include a variety of gambling operators and other regulated businesses under the auspice of Bradley’s committee. Right out of the gate in his first session in 2013, Bradley was named chairman of the Senate Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, in charge of billions of dollars in spending for prisons and courts. Bradley has also played a major role during the past two years in crafting a pension reform plan that would have changed how cities can spend insurance premium tax money that funds police and firefighter pensions. The legislation failed, but Bradley has taken up the pension reform mantle again this year. Sen. Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican who recently succeeded Bradley as chairman of the Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, has made Bradley the lead in trying to resolve a longrunning and vitriolic dispute between the state and counties over how to share juvenile-detention costs. “Whenever I see a problem that needs to be addressed or an issue that needs to be resolved, I gravitate to it. I enjoy tackling complex problems where there are many competing interests and trying to find solutions that everyone can live with,” Bradley said. Last year, Bradley was instrumental in drafting and pushing through a measure that legalized marijuana that is low in euphoriainducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD, for patients who suffer from severe spasms or cancer. His committee is poised to take on the issue again to consider modifications to the low-THC cannabis law. He has been openly critical of a measure proposed by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, that would open the door for “traditional” medical marijuana. Of the myriad items on his plate this year, Bradley cites the pot issue as the one that resonates the most for him. “I’ve found the whole discussion about where we go as a state on cannabis issues to be very interesting. I feel so strongly that other states have botched it that I really think it’s important that Florida gets it right. We’re now the third largest state in the union. We owe it not just to the people of the state of Florida but to the rest of the country to show that you can do this right. I just don’t want to see us repeat the mistakes that I’ve seen in Colorado and some other places,” he said. Away from the Capitol, Bradley says he likes to chill out with a slice from Decent Pizza, a popular locals’ spot not far from downtown, with friends and colleagues. His roommate, Rep. Travis Cummings, also is his best friend. The two men are the fathers of three children each and both hail from Clay County, where they sat on the county commission, although not at the same time. Cummings credits Bradley, who was appointed to the commission by former Gov. Charlie Crist, for schooling him after Cummings was elected to the Orange Park Town Council while Bradley was the town’s general counsel. SEN. ROB BRADLEY

Last year the Legislature passed a wide-ranging law intended to fix as many of those problems as possible. The measure came after a public outcry over a series of deaths of children who were already known to the state Department of Children and Families when they died. Lawmakers approved funding for 191 new child-protective investigators and tightened transparency requirements for the department. Now, with the law in effect, rapid-response teams conduct immediate investigations of certain children’s deaths, and DCF has posted six years’ worth of child-fatality data on its website. But the state continues to be rocked by incidents such as the death of 5-year-old Phoebe Jonchuck, dropped from a bridge into Tampa Bay in January, or the murders last fall of six children by their grandfather in Gilchrist County. Now, policymakers agree, it’s time to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the new law, and go from there. “We are on the right track,” said Sen. Eleanor Sobel, chairwoman of the Senate Children, Families and Elder Affairs Committee. “We need to continue keeping a close watch to make sure that no child dies who could have been saved.” Rep. Gayle Harrell, who chairs the House Children, Families and Seniors Subcommittee, said her panel would propose “not quite a glitch bill, but there will be some missing pieces that we left out last year.” “Last session was a great first bite of the apple, because it really focused on the front end of the system,” said Department of Children and Families Secretary Mike Carroll. “This year, I think you’ll see the Legislature focus on the back end.” Additionally, under the new law, the child-welfare system has new resources coming into play. For instance, the law created the Florida Institute for Child Welfare, to conduct policy research. It also created the Critical Incident Rapid Response Team, which investigated the killings in Tampa and Gilchrist County —and, in the Tampa case, released a damning report. As a result, Harrell’s committee has reviewed the team’s report on Phoebe Jonchuck’s death. “As we all know from reading that report, substance abuse, mental health and domestic violence were key drivers of what happened there,” she said. Harrell’s panel will hold a three-hour hearing on mentalhealth and substance-abuse issues next Wednesday. And Senate President Andy Gardiner has asked Sen. Rene Garcia, chairman of the chamber’s budget committee for health and human services, to conduct a review of programs that provide behavioral health care. At the same time, lawmakers are watching as the changes they made to the child-welfare system last year are still being put in place. For instance, Carroll said, while the Legislature had funded 191 new child-protective investigators, only about 90 percent of those positions are filled. That’s due to rapid turnover among frontline staff —still a problem for policymakers. And because of the law, Carroll said, more children are being removed from their homes, particularly in some areas where the removal rates have spiked. “That’s caused a strain on our ability to provide case-management services and make sure that we are really in these homes, supervising, and connecting these families to the necessary services,” Carroll said. As a result, lawmakers also will consider putting more money into the so-called “back end” of the child-welfare system —the privatized community-based care agencies, which provide adoption, foster care and case-management services. Currently, the case managers average 20 cases, according to Kurt Kelly, chief executive officer of the Florida Coalition for Children, which represents the communitybased care agencies. They’d like to hire enough new case managers to get the average caseload down to 13. Kelly said he was encouraged by improving relations between the Department of Children and Families and the communitybased care agencies, which worked together to develop a legislative budget request that includes $15.7 million for case managers and $4.5 million for training. Additionally, both Harrell and Sobel said they’ll continue to scrutinize the role of the Child Abuse Death Review Committee, which reviews child deaths that are reported to the state abuse hotline. But the biggest change wrought by the new law, Carroll said, is its tighter focus on child safety. “This should all be about what’s in the best interests of the child, and not what’s best for the parent or anyone else,” he said. “Now that’s a cultural shift for us, so it’s an ongoing process.”

M Court: Florida must prove hit-and-run drivers knew about crash TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Drivers in Florida can’t be prosecuted for leaving the scene of an accident unless there is proof they knew they were in a crash. The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously agreed with a lower court’s decision to throw out the conviction of a South Florida man charged after he hit a skateboarder while driving in the rain. Zachariah Dorsett was driving his truck down Florida’s famed A1A highway in Boca Raton when he struck a 15-year-old skateboarder who had fallen into the crosswalk. Dorsett maintained that he did not know he had hit Nicholas Savinon when he was pulled over by police about 3 miles from the accident. There was no evidence of damage to the truck, braking or any skid marks in the 2007 accident. Dorsett, who was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs, said he had his radio, windshield wipers and air conditioning on at the time. Savinon was dragged almost 90 feet under his truck. One witness testified seeing the truck back tire go up and down over Savinon, while another saw the skateboard get spit out from underneath the truck and split in two. A jury convicted Dorsett of leaving the scene of a crash that caused an injury. He was sentenced to two years in prison. An appeals court in 2013, however, overturned the decision and ordered a new trial because jurors were never asked to decide whether they thought Dorsett knew he had been involved in an accident. The state Supreme Court in its ruling sided with the appeals court. In the decision, Justice Charles Canady wrote that felony convictions require proof that someone “willfully” broke the law and knew what they were doing. “The state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the driver had actual knowledge of the crash, an essential element of the crime of leaving the scene of a crash,” Canady wrote. Michael Savinon, the father of Nicholas Savinon, said the decision means that other hit-and-run driv ers in the state may be able to get away with the crime in the future. “This allows everyone to flee the scene and use that as an excuse and say, ‘Wow, I didn’t know I was in a crash,’” Savinon said. Nicholas Savinon, who is now 22, had a traumatic brain injury as a result of the accident and spent weeks in a coma. His mother, Lydia Savinon, said he still lives at home with his parents and just recently began working at a Publix grocery store. She said she remains convinced that Dorsett did know that he hit her son. “In my opinion, there’s no way he couldn’t have known,” Savinon said. The ruling by the court means the case could wind its way back to prosecutors in Palm Beach County. An assistant state attorney said Thursday that until the case is officially remanded back to them they cannot decide whether they will push for a new trial. Study: parasite infecting Florida snails poses health danger GAINESVILLE (AP) — A rare parasite found in snails and rats that can cause serious health problems in humans and animals is more pervasive in South Florida than previously thought, a new study has found. University of Florida scientists say the nightmarishly named “rat lungworm” has been found in multiple species of snails in the Miami area, including the invasive giant African snail. The scientists, who published their results in the “Journal of Parasitology,” made the discovery while investigating the death of an orangutan that died after eating snails and falling ill. It was the second primate to die from ingesting infected snails in Florida since 2004. The Angiostrongylus cantonensis parasite already is a public health issue in Hawaii and throughout Asia, and it’s been found previously in Louisiana and Florida. But until now was not considered common in the continental U.S. Becoming infected with the lungworm is as bad as it sounds: once consumed, the parasites eat their way to the central nervous system, where they eventually die. While in rare cases the infection can be fatal, the worms often cause severe headaches, and sometimes even paralysis in people. In Hawaii, the infected snails have caused dozens of people to fall ill, mostly from accidentally ingesting tiny snails on salad greens or other produce that had not been properly washed. Figuring out how pervasive the worm is in Florida was important because of the human health hazards. Still, humans who don’t eat snails are safe. “Humans can’t become infected with this parasite unless they eat an undercooked or raw snail,” said Heather Walden, the study’s lead author and a professor of parasitology at University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. The rat lungworm was first reported in humans in Taiwan in 1945, according to the report, and about 3,000 cases have since been reported worldwide, mostly in China, Thailand and the Pacific Islands. In the continental U.S. there has been only one confirmed case of infection from the parasite in the 1990s, when a boy was sickened in Louisiana after eating raw snails. The parasite flourishes because of the symbiotic relationship between snails and rats — rats eat the infected snails, and the snails in turn feed on the rat feces. Since rats and snails are easily transported on ships, the parasite has had ample opportunity to move.


LOCA L & STATE Friday, February 27, 2015 | The News Herald | Page B7 TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Attorneys for former Florida House Speaker Ray Sansom argued Thursday that taxpayers should pay his legal fees of almost $1 million from corruption charges dating back to 2009. The Destin Republican’s lawyers argued that because the charges stemmed from his work as a legislator and were dismissed, Samson is entitled to have the public pay his fees. They are seeking $817,518 plus interest, $970,187 in all, for some 2,700 hours of legal work and costs. Sansom was accused of scheming with wealthy co-defendant and political supporter, Ray Odom, and former president of the Northwest Florida State College Bob Richburg to add $6 million to the state budget for an airplane hangar at the Destin airport to benefit Odom. The defendants maintained the building was actually an emergency operations facility and training center for the school. Only $309,000 of the money was spent. Richburg accepted a deal to pay a third of that amount and testify against the other two. But the case collapsed when a judge ruled Richburg couldn’t testify as a co-conspirator. Lawyers from the state Attorney General’s Office argued that Sansom tacitly agreed for Odom to pay $206,000 in restitution for both men in return for a dismissal of the charges, meaning they weren’t truly exonerated. Stephen Dobson, a white collar crime specialist who represented Sansom in the 2011 trial, is now suing for the fees along with Sansom. “I had an agreement with his lawyer ... that the case would not go forward any further and I would be getting a check for the restitution,” Leon County State Attorney Willie Meggs said of Sansom. But Dobson testified Sansom rejected the only proposal he received from Meggs — that Sansom agree to the restitution and agree not to seek public payment of his legal fees. The trial amounted to “a successful defense that entitles payment” of the fees under the law, contended Stephen Turner, representing Odom and Sansom in the fee case.

PANAMA CITY Scott honors 132 veterans Gov. Rick Scott awarded 132 Florida veterans with the Governor’s Veterans Service Award for their service to Florida and the nation. “As a Navy veteran myself, I was honored to recognize 132 Florida veterans today for their courage and commitment to our nation,” Scott said. “Florida is home to the third largest population of veterans in the nation, and as our veteran population grows we must continue to support them and their families.” The ceremony was held at the Panama City National Guard Armory. During the ceremony, Scott highlighted the service of Florida veteran Master Sgt. John Milam. Milam is a 21-year Air Force veteran who trained in Weapons Mechanics at Samson Air Force Base in New York and Lawry Air Force Base in Colorado. He served in Japan, Korea, Germany and Vietnam. Milam now lives at the Clifford C. Sims home, one of Florida’s six state veteran’s nursing homes. The Governor’s Veterans Service Award honors Floridians who have served in the U.S. military. The front of the medal depicts the Great Seal of the state of Florida. The back of the medal displays the five seals representing the five branches of U.S. military with an inscription that reads “Honoring Those Who Served.” LARGO Dad incompetent to stand trial A man accused of throwing his 5-year-old daughter over a Tampa bridge is being sent to a prison mental facility until he is capable of understanding the first-degree murder charges he is facing. Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge Chris Helinger ruled Thursday that John Jonchuck is incompetent to stand trial. He was arrested Jan. 8 after authorities said he dropped daughter Phoebe Jonchuck more than 60 feet off a bridge approaching the Sunshine Skyway during what appeared to be a psychotic breakdown. Prosecutors said two experts who have evaluated Jonchuck believe he can become mentally competent with proper treatment in six to nine months. PENSACOLA Beaches turn to mile markers Emergency responders said new mile marker signs on some Panhandle beaches could help save lives. Long stretches of sparsely developed beach from the Alabama line east through Santa Rosa County create problems for emergency crews because there are few distinguishing landmarks. The public safety director for the Santa Rosa Island Authority said the new mile marker signs will improve the response time of emergency crews. The project is being done in cooperation with the authority, Escambia and Santa Rosa counties and Gulf Islands National Seashore. The large mile maker signs are being posted on 10-foot poles so they will be visible from the beach and the road.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports In a tip of the hat to Xavier Rathan-Mayes’ big game, here’s a look at some other memorable scoring outbursts: WILT’S 100 The points had better come in bunches to hit 100 in a game. And that’s exactly what Wilt Chamberlain did in March 1962. During a scoring performance that still stands as the NBA’s best, Chamberlain followed a 28-point third quarter by scoring 31 in the fourth on 12-for-21 shooting along with going 7-for-10 at the line, according to STATS. He played all 48 minutes in the 169-147 win against New York. BRYANT’S 81 Kobe Bryant came the closest to Wilt’s 100 in January 2006 with 81 points. The Los Angeles Lakers star scored 55 points after halftime, racking up 27 points on 11-for-15 shooting in the third quarter and 28 more in the fourth. Bryant finished 28-for-46 from the field, 7-for-13 from 3-point range and 18-for-20 at the foul line. PISTOL PETE No one in college basketball ever scored like “Pistol” Pete Maravich. The LSU guard still holds the NCAA’s career record with 3,667 points and 44.2-point career average. In a career filled with 50and 60-point games, Maravich’s best output came in February 1970 at Alabama, where he went FRIDAY February 27, 2015 Xavier’s zone The Associated Press Now Florida State guard Xavier RathanMayes’ name can be etched into sports lore alongside the likes of Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant and “Pistol” Pete Maravich. They’re on a short list of players to get into such an offensive “zone” that their performances led to memorable scoring outbursts. Rathan-Mayes, a little-known fresh man guard from Canada, erupted for 30 points in the final 4:38 in Wednes day’s failed comeback at Miami. “It was a crazy feeling just to be locked into a zone like that,” Rathan-Mayes said Thursday. “I was telling my dad earlier that I’d never been in a zone like that.” He went 8-for-10 from the field, 6-for-8 from 3-point range and 8-for-9 at the foul line during his flurry, all while checking in and out of the game late due to foul trouble. He almost single-handedly erased an 18-point deficit before FSU lost 81-77. Rathan-Mayes, who came in averaging 13.6 points, finished with 35 points to tie his own program freshman record set in last month’s loss at North Carolina. He also passed Bob Sura for FSU’s single-season freshman scoring record during the game.

If new athletic director Jeff Johnson has his way, the Indians will have a new one in pretty soon. The school announced Monday that coach Patrick Blake was step ping down after three seasons at the helm. Blake won 26 games in each of his first two seasons at Chipola and made the quarterfinals of the national tournament in his second year.

Johnson, who is also the school’s baseball coach, was named the ath letic director in January and said Thursday he is determined to find the right man to right the Indians’ ship. “Me being a new athletic direc tor, I’m very competitive,” he said. “I understand you’re going to have some years where you’re not as good as other years, but we expect our programs to be very competi tive. I would like to win the Pan handle Conference every year, but we want to be competitive year in and year out and put out a group on the floor that’s a classy group. “I don’t know where (the search) is going to take us, but we’re trying to get the best fit for Chipola.

The Sprint Cup drivers returned to the track Thurs day at Atlanta Motor Speed way, getting an extra day to test out the new rules pack age that will be in effect for the first time. “This really feels like the start of the season,” said Kyle Larson, who ranked second behind Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Jamie McMurray during the first practice session on a cool, windy day at the 1.54-mile trioval. The Daytona 500 is in a class of its own, the big gest event of the year com ing right at the start of the schedule. The race Sunday will be more in line with the bulk of the grueling schedule, which will lead to a champion finally being crowned in November. Also, since the races at Daytona and Talladega are run with a special restric tor-plate package that was largely unchanged from 2014, this will be the first event with the new rules. The horsepower has been reduced significantly, going from 840 to 725, and the rear spoiler was shortened from 8 to 6 inches. Most intrigu ingly, drivers now have the option of controlling the track bar from inside the car, allowing them to adjust the rear balance during the race, altering the way their machine handles. “It’s nice to put a little bit more in the drivers’ hands,” Larson said.

Godby (32-0) trailed 17-5 after the first period and 30-20 at half time but used a 13-1 run to pull ahead in the third period of a tightly contested game.

A relentless wind with gusts that approached 35 mph provided a rude wel come to just about every one Thursday at the Honda Classic except for Jim Her man, who somehow made it around PGA National without a bogey for a 5-under 65 and a one-shot lead. McIlroy managed to sal vage a tough day by holing a 30-foot birdie putt and twoputting for birdie on the 18th hole for a 3-over 73. It was his highest open ing-round score to par since a 3-over 74 at The Barclays seven months ago. And he didn’t seem too bothered. The world’s No. 1 player was competing for the first time since he won in Dubai a month ago. And he wasn’t alone. He played with Dustin Johnson, who birdied his last two holes for a 77, and Phoenix Open winner Brooks Koepka, who shot a 78. “The conditions were obviously very tricky from the start,” McIlroy said. “From the first hole, it was always going to be a day like that. I feel like I salvaged something out of the round the last couple holes, but it was just a day to keep try ing, not to give up and know that anything around level, 1-, 2-over par still isn’t out of it.” Only 19 players managed to break par. Only three holes — both par 5s and the downwind ninth — played under par. Seventeen players had a front-nine score of 40 or higher. Herman didn’t mind the wind, though he moved to south Florida more than a decade ago and was sur prised earlier in the week when there was hardly any wind at all. Even with a 65, it still wasn’t easy. He twice saved par from the fairway and rolled in a 35-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole. “I don’t mind it blow ing,” Herman said. “I feel like I can control the golf ball pretty well with my iron game. So yeah, it was OK that the wind was blowing.” Brendan Steele pitched in from about 35 yards to save bogey on the 14th hole, a key moment in his round of 66. Martin Flores, Kapalua winner Patrick Reed and Padraig Harrington were at 67. U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer was among those at 68. LPGA THAILAND CHONBURI, Thailand — Taiwan’s Yani Tseng shot a 6-under 66 in the LPGA Thailand for a share of the first-round lead with American rivals Stacy Lewis and Brittany Lang. Tseng, the 2011 and 2012 win ner, had seven birdies and a bogey on Siam Country Club’s Pattaya Old Course. She won the last of her 15 LPGA Tour titles in 2012. Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn was a stroke back along with Thai amateur Budsabakorn Sukapan, Suzann Pettersen, Mirim Lee, Lizette Salas and Amy Yang. Defending champion Anna Nor dqvist had a 72, and Michelle Wie shot 73. JOBURG OPEN JOHANNESBURG — South Africa’s Nic Henning shot a course-record 9-under 62 on Royal Johannesburg and Kensing ton’s West Course to take the firstround lead in the Joburg Open. Henning had an eagle and seven birdies. South Africa’s Tjaart Van der Walt and Titch Moore and Bel gium’s Thomas Pieters shot 63, also on the West Course. They will play the more diffi cult East Course today. The final two rounds also will be played on the East Course.

SPORT S Friday, February 27, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 for 69 points — 47 after halftime — on 26-for-57 shooting along with going 17-for-21 on free throws in the 106-104 loss. MILLER TIME Hard to believe, but May marks 20 years since Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller singlehandedly pulled off a shocking comeback. With his team trailing by six in Game 1 of the NBA’s Eastern Confer ence semifinals, Miller scored eight points in the final 18.7 seconds to beat the New York Knicks 107-105 in Madison Square Garden. After hitting a 3 over John Starks, Miller stole the ensuing inbounds pass, took a quick dribble to step behind the arc and buried another 3 to tie it with 13.2 seconds left. Then after Starks missed two free throws, Miller was fouled on a rebound and hit two free throws for the lead with 7.5 seconds left. The always-talkative Miller walked off the MSG court in defiant celebration yelling “Choke artists!” and sealing the moment in NBA playoff lore. SLEEPY’S MARK It isn’t Bryant or Michael Jordan who own the NBA playoff record for scoring in a half and a quarter. It’s Eric “Sleepy” Floyd. In the 1987 playoffs, Floyd set records with 29 points and 12 field goals in a quarter, as well as 39 points in a half for Golden State in a Western Conference semifinals win against the Lakers. In the years since, there have been players to flirt with those marks — Detroit’s Isiah Thomas scored a Finals-record 25 points in a quarter in 1988 on an injured ankle — but Floyd still holds the mark. SCORING SPREES from Page C1 GC trio named to women’s all-Panhandle Conference first team The News Herald PANAMA CITY — Three Gulf Coast players have been named to the 2015 Women’s Basketball Coaches’ All Panhandle Confer ence First Team. Sophomore forward Chelsey Gibson, freshman center Kris tina King, and sophomore guard Tianah Alvarado were all picked for the first team, while King was named the conference’s Fresh man of the Year. The 6-foot-3 King had a tre mendous first season with the Lady Commodores, averaging 15.3 points and 12.2 rebounds per game to go with 1.6 steals and 1.5 blocks per game. Gibson led the Lady Com modores offensively with 19.4 points per game and added 8.9 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game, with the 6-foot forward topping 20 points 15 times this season, including a career-high 40 points against Miami-Dade on Nov. 22. Alvarado averages 13.6 points and 1.7 steals per game and leads the team with 59 made 3-pointers. Only Chipola and Tallahassee had the same number of first team selections with three each, with Northwest Florida State getting two on the first team and three on the second team. Chipola’s Evelyn Akhator was named the Player of the Year for an outstanding sophomore cam paign in which she led the nation in rebounding (16.5 per game) and was fifth nationally in scoring (22.3). She was also 10th in the country with 3.1 blocks per game and 12th with 3.4 steals per game. Lady Indians coach Greg Franklin was named the Coach of the Year for leading Chipola to the Panhandle Conference title with a league record of 11-1. worries about making an adjustment inadvertently. Or, even worse, having it get stuck during a change, going to one extreme or the other. “This is an opportunity to screw ourselves up more than it helps us,” said Edwards, getting ready for his sec ond race with the new No. 19 team at Joe Gibbs Racing. “I will probably not mess with mine too much.” McMurray posted the fastest speed during the opening practice, turning a lap of 191.549 mph. Larson was next at 190.195, followed by defending Cup champion Kevin Har vick at 189.850. Speeds dropped off in the second session, led by Jeff Gordon’s lap of 188.424. Edwards was further back but there’s no track he enjoys more than Atlanta, the site of his first career vic tory. He couldn’t help but notice a photo in the media center of him beating Jimmie Johnson by just a few feet in that 2005 race. “The picture is kind of hidden behind the coffee machine and the doughnuts,” he quipped, “but that was a turning point in my life.” Echoing Larson’s comments, Edwards said this feels like another season opener. Restrictor-plate racing is basically pushing the pedal to the floor for 500 miles and hoping you avoid the inevitable wrecks that occur when the field is bunched together for long periods of time. The drivers will have more of a say in who pulls into Victory Lane in Atlanta. “It’s a fast track with a lot of character,” Edwards said. “I could race here every week and be happy.” To make it safer, track officials announced plans to extend the SAFER foam barrier by 130 feet at the exit of pit road near Turn 1, in addition to installing a tire barrier along the inside wall of Turn 4. The move follows a hard crash at Daytona that left Kyle Busch with a broken right leg and left foot. During the Xfinity Series race, he slammed into a concrete wall that was unprotected by a SAFER barrier, forcing him to miss the biggest event of the year and putting him out of action indefinitely. Matt Crafton, a regular in the Truck series, took over the No. 18 car in the Daytona 500. David Ragan has been tapped to fill in for Busch at Atlanta and the next several weeks. Ragan was given permission by his regular team, Front Row Motorsports, to take over Busch’s seat at Joe Gibbs Racing. Joe Nemechek was hired to replace Ragan in the No. 34 machine at Atlanta, which has 48 entries. Five drivers will be sent home after qualifying, putting the pressure on low-budget teams to make the 43-car field or possibly run out of money to carry on to future events. Uncertain of a full-season ride at Front Row because of sponsorship issues, Ragan jumped at the chance to race for one of the sport’s top teams, even if it’s just a tempo rary move while Busch recovers. “I’m going to work hard to be a better driver and a great teammate the next several weeks,” Ragan said. “I’m only going to be better when I get back in the 34 car later in the season.” SPRINT CUP from Page C1 been a good deal of interest shown in the position and he hopes to start interviewing candidates in the next two weeks and have the position filled within three weeks. “We want to get this thing done as quickly as possible and be as thorough as we can before we make a decision,” he said. “The big key is getting the right person for Chipola, a person that fits our community and college and what we’re trying to get done here.” Chipola isn’t the only Panhan dle Conference school looking for a new men’s basketball coach, as Tallahassee is also searching for a replacement for the retiring Eddie Barnes. With two openings in one year in arguably the best and most competi tive juco basketball conference in the country, there is sure to be a great deal of interest from coaches around the nation. Those who have already made inquiries about Chipola, accord ing to Johnson, include former Division I head coaches, current juco head coaches, and assistats at the Division-I and juco levels. Johnson did say that he was look ing for someone with more college experience, which would be a depar ture from the last three men’s bas ketball coaching searches when the Indians promoted young assistants to the head job. It worked brilliantly with Heiar, who now works as an assistant at Wichita State along with Jans, but Chipola hasn’t been able to sustain consistent success since Heiar left in 2009 with the hires of Blake and his predecessor Jake Headrick. “There are a lot of reasons why it happened that way for a few years,” Johnson said. “A lot of that was predi cated a little bit on budgetary issues and the money you wanted to pay, as well as feeling comfortable with what you’re doing, having those guys on the staff already and not necessarily wanting to go through a search and everything that goes into that. “We decided that we wanted to get someone this time with a little more college experience. If we get a guy who has been a head coach before, then that’s not a bad thing because he’s dealt with all the paperwork and all the issues with kids that can hap pen during the year and knows how to deal with those things. But there are also guys who are assistant coaches who prove they can handle it like Greg Heiar did. There’s really no right or wrong answer.” Chipola’s longest-tenured assistant coach is Brendan Foley, who has been with the school for three years. Johnson said that Foley, who is recruiting for the school and over seeing the current players’ academic responsibilities, would be considered in the search.

DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Cohabiting might not fit into boyfriend’s values DEAR AMY: I am in a new relationship. We are very much in love and have similar values and relationship goals. I am 35 and have been living on my own for over 10 years. My boyfriend is 30 and has never lived on his own. He is Chinese-American and has said he still lives at home for cultural reasons. We have made the decision to move in together, but now we have run into problems. He is having a harder time adjusting to this change than I expected. I was practically thrown out the door as a young adult, encouraged strongly to build a life on my own. Therefore I lack the empathy needed to understand his point of view. He isn’t moving across the country (like I did) — he’s moving only 10 miles away! I’m hurt and think he no longer is excited about taking this step. I feel rejected and sad on the nights he chooses to sleep back at his home. What can we do to get through this? LON ELY A T HO ME DEAR L ON ELY: One very obvious answer is not to live together unless and until you get married. His core family values are actually quite different from yours, in that he was raised by people who belong to a culture where families often cohabit up to (and sometimes after) marriage. His parents might feel that his first priority and loyalty always must be to them — his partner will come second. This puts him in quite a bind. You are assuming that he must adjust to the typically independent American family structure, but have you done anything to adjust to his? Is he homesick for his parents, or is he facing emotionally charged pressure from them to be home (or a combination of both)? Have you gotten to know his folks, just 10 miles away? Have you invited them to your home for dinner, and have you spent time in their home? For your relationship to have longterm success, you both must develop empathy and acceptance. DEAR AMY: I was once in the situation of the “Weary Wife,” who could not persuade her husband to stop smoking cigars. In my case, I was furious because my husband would not wear a bike helmet, despite all the news articles about cyclists being killed when not wearing helmets. I actually took the same route Weary was considering to solve the problem. I sat him down at a calm time and told him our marriage was for better or worse, but NOT if the “worse” was caused by a serious accident in which he was not wearing a helmet. I said I would divorce him, leave him to be cared for in a nice nursing home, and would be happy to visit him with my new husband. He figured out that this was really important to me, stomped around and didn’t ride his bike for a year. But when he went back to riding, he was wearing a helmet. Twelve years ago someone stepped in front of him when he was on a bike path and he swerved and crashed headfirst into a tree. The helmet split in half, but he was fine. Control? Probably yes, but it did save his life and certainly made me happy. JUST A TH OUG H T DEAR T H OUG H T : You are brilliant. And a life saver. DEAR AMY: My heart went out to “Only Daughter,” who was struggling to love her elderly mother. My mother had Alzheimer’s. We were fortunate to find a book on difficulties of caregiving: “Love Never Sleeps: Living at Home with Alzheimer’s,” by Mary Summer Rain (2002, Hampton Roads). One exceptional piece of advice kept us going. To paraphrase what became our mantra: “I can promise to keep you safe, but I can’t promise to make you happy.” Of all the advice we got, this was the best. OLDE ST D A UG H T ER DEAR DA UG H T ER: Outstanding wisdom.

T A U R US (April 20-May 20): When people fold their arms in front of their chest, it means they feel defensive. It’s a mild barrier, and when you see it, you’ll work a little harder to get someone to open up. G EMI N I (May 21-June 21): There’s only one like you; therefore, you needn’t worry about saying something that’s never been said before. Even if you repeat someone else’s message, you’ll personalize it. CA N CER (June 22-July 22): If you spend time following and studying your idols, it feels like you are loafing. Don’t worry, this is how you get inspired. LE O (July 23-Aug. 22): The sun is in the process of setting just after it reaches its highest point in the sky. But those pretty colors splashed across the horizon only last a few minutes. It will be lucky, inspiring and love-attracting to watch the sunset. VIR GO (Aug. 23S ept. 22): Before you get discouraged, there are resources right under your nose that you haven’t tapped yet. Think about who you know and who they know. LIBRA ( S ept. 23O ct. 23): You are so connected to a certain someone that you understand what each other needs without a verbal exchange. When you do talk, you can say everything without saying much. S C O RPI O ( O ct. 24N ov. 21): Truth be told, you don’t always play to win. Sometimes it’s more polite, fair or kind to let someone else win. You’ll assess today’s opponent with an open heart. S A G I TT ARI US ( N ov. 22-Dec. 21): If you interact with someone while he or she is in a bad mood, this person will associate you with this negative state of mind in the future. That’s why, when you see a dark cloud, you should turn the other way. CAPRIC O R N (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Before you take advice, check credentials. Is your adviser using the same strategy and winning? You could waste a lot of time following the wrong person, so be careful! AQ U ARI US (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your affable personality will attract many, and you don’t have an unlimited amount of time for socializing. But you don’t have to be friends with everyone to be friendly. PI S CE S (Feb. 19-March 20): Just as reading happens in a different part of the brain than TV watching, each event of the day touches your mind differently, thus shaping your creativity in a unique way.

Highlight in history On Feb. 27, 1933, Germany’s parliament building, the Reichstag, was gutted by fire. Chancellor Adolf Hitler, blaming the Communists, used the fire to justify suspending civil liberties. On this date 1801 – The District of Columbia was placed under the jurisdiction of Congress. 1911 – Inventor Charles F. Kettering demonstrated his electric automobile starter in Detroit by starting a Cadillac’s motor with just the press of a switch, instead of hand-cranking. 1922 – The Supreme Court, in Leser v. Garnett, unanimously upheld the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which guaranteed the right of women to vote. 1951 – The 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, limiting a president to two terms of office, was ratified. 1960 – The U.S. Olympic hockey team defeated the Soviets, 3-2, at the Winter Games in Squaw Valley, California. 1982 – Wayne Williams was found guilty of murdering two of the 28 young blacks whose bodies were found in the Atlanta area over a 22-month period. 1991 – During Operation Desert Storm, President George H.W. Bush declared that “Kuwait is liberated, Iraq’s army is defeated.” 2010 – In Chile, an 8.8 magnitude earthquake and tsunami killed 524 people, and left 200,000 homeless. Thought for today “He that respects himself is safe from others. He wears a coat of mail that none can pierce.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (born this date 1807, died 1882) Y our HOROS C OPE: Holiday Mathis Page C6 | The News Herald | Friday, February 27, 2015 A Different Deal Every Day $15 $30 50% Send questions via email to askamy@ or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N.

Call Todd 252-3234 MLB’s oldest player can’t relate to today’s youth SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — When Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins was drafted in 1991, Col orado Gold Glove third baseman Nolan Arenado was two months old. Right-hander Eddie Butler was also still in diapers. “It’s crazy,” Butler said. “The guy’s got a career that’s lasted my life span.” Now 42 and the oldest player in the majors, Hawkins is preparing for his final season before retire ment. He’s seen a lot, playing for 10 of 30 teams in the big leagues. He’s gone from starter to reliever. His debut came a year after the 1994 strike, and he’s lasted through the steroids era to today’s game filled with millennials. “I think we’re into the genera tion where everybody gets a tro phy. And those guys are getting to the big leagues now,” Hawkins said. “I know I’m going to take some heat about it, but I’m telling you what I know.” Hawkins may have trouble relating to today’s youth, but he can still get them out. The righthander remains a lean, fit 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds. Hawkins, who announced in December that this would be his final season, saved 23 games a year ago and became the 16th pitcher in major league history to reach 1,000 appearances. “That was a big goal of mine,” Hawkins said. “Just looking at the guys that are on that list. I’ve never made an All-Star team. I’ve played in one World Series. There are a lot of things I haven’t done in the game. And that’s one of the things I have.” Hawkins was the third-oldest player in baseball a year ago. But then Jason Giambi (44) announced his retirement, while Raul Ibanez (42) is also no longer in the game. Hawkins, who has 124 career saves, thinks simplicity is the key to his longevity. “I have nice, easy mechanics,” Hawkins said. “I’m not a drop, drive and a screamer. I don’t have body parts going everywhere. My mechanics aren’t violent.” Save for shoulder surgery in 2010, Hawkins has stayed healthy since making his major league debut with Minnesota in 1995. It must be because he’s a workout freak, right? “I didn’t start working out until 2000,” Hawkins said. “Before then all I did was play basketball in the offseason. I was under the impres sion that if you were in basketball shape, you were in everythingelse shape.” Even his good diet was a rela tively recent conversion. “I started eating healthy prob ably about ’06,maybe?” Hawkins said “I was just looking at all the fast foods and started doing research on what causes heart attacks. And just looking around. There’s a lot of overweight people in the world.” Hawkins notices the aches and pains take longer to go away these days. That and the pulls of family are the reasons he’ll step away after 2015. But his arm remains strong. He still throws in the mid-90s, and Rockies manager Walt Weiss plans to make only minimal adjustments to his role as closer. Hawkins needs 36 appear ances to move into the top-10 in MLB history. “There will be days when I’ll just say, ‘You’re not pitching today,’ And we’ll designate somebody else to finish the game,” Weiss said. “There will be days like that. But he’s still in tremendous shape. His arm still rebounds very well. So I think he’ll be able to go to the post quite a bit.” ROCKIES PITCHE R LA TR OY H AWKINS not going to let that hap pen to him, probably never again.” The Cardinals twice tagged Kershaw in the 2013 NL Championship Series, then did it again in last year’s NL Division Series. “If somebody had told me that anybody would beat Clayton twice in one series, I would have said ‘No way,’ ” Koufax said. “I prob ably would have cursed and then said No way.’ But, you know, it happens.” Kershaw is 1-5 with a 5.12 ERA in the post season. Koufax was 4-3 despite a sparkling 0.95 ERA, and twice was the World Series MVP for the Dodgers. Kershaw, who has often been compared to Koufax, hinted early in camp that he is more motivated than ever to get beyond his postsea son futility. In accepting the NL MVP at the baseball writers’ din ner in New York on Jan. 24, he concluded by thanking the Cardinals for reminding him “you’re never as good as you think are.” Koufax applauded him for that line. But he also expects the 26-year-old Ker shaw to approach the 2015 season the same way he’s always done. “I think he always has that fire burning,” said Kou fax, who plans to be in camp until their exhibition games begin Wednesday against the White Sox. “He’s a great competi tor. Will there be any extra? I hope not. Extra might destroy him,” he said. KERSHAW from Page C1 BASEBALL BRIEFS AP source: K -Rod, Brewers agree to deal PHOENIX — Francisco Rodriguez will be jogging out of the bullpen again for the Milwaukee Brewers. The closer and the Brewers agreed Thursday to a $13 million, two-year contract, a deal subject to the successful completion of a physical. The 33-year-old Rodriguez revived his career last season, when he converted 44 of 49 save chances. Rodriguez went 5-5 with a 3.04 ERA, with 73 strikeouts and 14 home runs allowed in 68 innings. Nats’ W erth still rehabbing from surgery VIERA — The Washington Nationals’ Jayson Werth is back on the field, just not 100 percent yet. Werth participated in outfield drills Thursday during the Nationals’ first full-squad workout Thursday. But the left fielder was generally limited as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. Still, the fact Werth was with his teammates instead of hanging out with the trainers spoke volumes for manager Matt Williams. Marlins’ Stanton faces live pitches JUPITER — Giancarlo Stanton saw his first live pitches since his beaning back in September. The Miami Marlins will have to wait at least one more day to watch Stanton take his first swing. While other members of his hitting group swung freely Thursday during the Miami’s first live batting practice sessions of the spring, Stanton — wearing a traditional-style batting helmet — tracked all 10 pitches he saw, five from Henderson Alvarez and five from Brad Hand, into the catcher’s mitt. He never considered swinging, not even at strikes. Stanton said he didn’t experience any anxiety stepping into the box for the first time since a Mike Fiers fastball broke his orbital bone and damaged five teeth on Sept. 12, prematurely ending the young slugger’s season. Blue Jays sign LHP Johan Santana DUNEDIN — The Toronto Blue Jays have signed two-time Cy Young winner Johan Santana to a minor league contract, hoping the former ace can make it back to the majors. The Blue Jays announced the deal Thursday and invited him to big league spring training. Santana turns 36 in March. He last pitched in the majors in 2012 with the New York Mets and has undergone two operations on his left shoulder in recent years. The four-time All-Star won AL Cy Young Awards with Minnesota in 2004 and 2006. He pitched the only no-hitter in Mets’ history and is 139-78 lifetime with a 3.20 ERA.

4 • The ENTERTAINER PEOPLE Friday, February 27, 2015 In 2007, I traded in 22 years of life as a proud Kansan for a newspaper job in Florida. My family was shocked; my friends were stoked. That rst summer, I went to the beach at every opportunity, picked up at least a thousand seashells and ate all the seafood I could. I posed with the giant whales and sharks in front of Jaws and Moby Dick’s beach stores. I snorkeled. I discovered my favorite bars. I threw Cheetos in the air for sea gulls (“Look! They’re catching it!). I took pictures of pelicans. My new friends shook their heads and said, “Tourist.” I don’t know when I crossed the line and became a bona de local (perhaps when I of cially broke down and once said “ xin’ to”?), but since that time, I’ve developed the nely tuned tourist radar all locals have. I can spot one from a mile away. * The lily white college boy asleep in the sun with no sunscreen or umbrella in sight. * The woman at the oyster bar who wants her wine served in a real glass, not a plastic mug. * The car with the Ontario plates crossing three lanes at once at the foot of the Hathaway. * The three girls on the one rental scooter. * That idiot throwing Cheetos at the sea gulls. They’re good for a laugh, but they’re also good for the county. According to Tourism Development Council gures, visitor spending topped $1.1 billion, an average of $3.1 million per day. Of those visitors, 84 percent said they planned to return within a year. And really, they’re pretty fun. They laugh. They party. They limbo. (Remarkably well. I saw a girl at La Vela last spring break who must be a magician’s assistant in real life.) I’ve seen them create passable dorm rooms out of sand, complete with tables and bench seating. But as luck would have it, you can have their spirit and actually live here! Bearing a “LOCAL” stamp on your hand means more than “I live here.” It means “I paid less to get into this club than you did.” It means “You took Thomas Drive here? Tourist!” It means you have a secret parking spot within feet of the beach that’s never taken. It also means you’re mentioned in a Kenny Chesney song. And a Luke Bryan song. (The 850 also made it into Ludacris’ infamous “Area Codes” song, but perhaps we won’t go there.) I think the secret to living in a tourist town is to wear both hats: Get a job, do your job, then spend the rest of your time enjoying what Bay County has to offer. For me, eight years later, some things have changed. Friends have come and gone. Stores have opened and closed. I got married and had a beach bunny baby. But some things are the same. I eat all the seafood I can and take pictures of every bird or sh I come across. I scuba dive. And I pick up shells at the beach. Every time. “Look, honey! This one’s the most perfect spiral!” My husband shakes his head and says, “Tourist.” Living like a tourist, permanently My friend and partner in crime Carey and I sport our “LOCAL” stamps at Spinnaker. Cheap admission? Yes, please! “Look, you guys!

PEOPLE We had dinner there recently and I fought my usual mental battle that starts something like this: “I’m NOT having the stuffed grouper again, I get that every time. I’m going to try the steak.” And it ends something like this, “I guess I’ll have the stuffed grouper.” This time, I vocalized my quandary and our waitress offered that there was a special, a new item. Special and new are magic words for the consumer, you know, so I had to hear it. She mentioned something about shrimp and said they were served in seasoned grits. When she got to the fourth type of cheese in the grits, I’d heard enough: “I’ll take it!” Best shrimp dish I’ve had in many years. We had visits from Theo, Jimmy and Nick Patronis during the meal, all politely inquiring if the food was good and if my credit card had been reinstated. The place was packed, And then Theo , God bless him, heard me asking why there wasn’t chocolate cheesecake on the menu — and about a week later he called to say he had a surprise for me if I could stop by. He presented me with a chocolate cheesecake! • • • While we’re talking about food, there was harrowing news on breakfast front early last week: Charlie Coram’s Place on 23rd Street was closing until 6 a.m. today. What? I need at least one Heavenly Hash a week and I had breakfast there Saturday and would be out of town this Saturday. I might have to go 10 days without it? Charlie said they’re moving the cook line out and doing some “extensive” repair work, but expected to be back open sometime today. My belly hopes so. Leave it to Capt. Anderson’s to mess up my routine BAY WATCH MIKE CAZALAS Editor SEE BAY WATCH | 7


Friday, February 27, 2015 The ENTERTAINER • 7 • • • A little common sense will go a long way as it goes to the everyone enjoying Panama City’s new dog park on Balboa Avenue, just north of the waking track. My English cocker Buddy loves to go there and run for up to an hour, alert only to the possibility that a bird might fall out of the sky and he could bring it to me. We go a couple of times a week and it’s an absolute blast ... except for when “that guy” shows up. You don’t have to have met him to know “that guy.” He’s the one with the aggressive dog that ends up tangling with other dogs every single time until he apologizes and nally leaves, usually after others have removed their dogs. Folks, if your dogs can’t play nice, don’t bring them to the doggie park. • • • Saw a sign that I really liked and that really struck a nerve with me the other day on my way to work. Right there on Mulberry Avenue was a highly visible sign in someone’s yard saying, “ Drive like your kids live here .” I’ve driven up and down that road 5 times a week for some 30 years and while cognizant of it being residential, had been guilty of being in a hurry on the way to some breaking news assignment or another. But that sign caught my attention and has stuck with me. We should all drive through any neighborhood as if our kids lived there, because I know I drive awfully slow through my own neighborhood. I’ve got to ask where they got that sign. • • • I was socializing recently with a group of folks, including a gaggle of ladies who had spent a few hours at Club La Vela on Thomas Drive. During ensuing conversations, one of the ladies – I’d never met her – struck up a conversation after we were introduced. “Caz,” she said. “You look just like my third husband!” “Good grief,” I said, “how many times have you been married?” “Twice,” she said.

Toss the fingerling potatoes with oil, sea salt and black pepper. Place mix on baking sheet. Roast pota toes until they are slightly tender, approximately 25 minutes; reserve. Heat a large Dutch oven or stock pot over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook it until the fat is ren dered and the bacon is browned, about 6 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and sweat by cooking until they are tender but not brown, about 4 minutes. Add the potatoes, corn and clams. Season the mix a little more with leftover smoked salt and pepper. Pour in wine and cover the pot to steam the clams; this usually takes about 8-10 minutes. Once the clams have completely opened up, use a slotted spoon to transfer them with bacon and vegetables to a large serving bowl, leaving the liquid in the pot. Stir in cream and butter into the pot and simmer over medium heat until the liquid becomes thickened, 6 to 7 minutes. Spoon the sauce over clams, bacon, and vegetables, and garnish with green onion.

Friday, February 27, 2015 12 • The ENTERTAINER FOOD & DRINK PANAMA CITY BEACH — If you have not been to Jazmine Thai this season, you are missing out on the cure for bored tastebuds. Owner and Executive Chef Sam Junlakan has been shaking things up from the kitchen to the iPad menu — all for the better. “My mom is from Thailand. Thai food comes natural for me. We try to stay true and authentic, as close to Thailand as possible,” said Junlakan, a Panama City native. “But I am also trying to bring something different. I have stuff you don’t usually see in a Thai restaurant — fusion cuisine and sushi.” After recently relocating from Michigan, he and his wife are now raising their two daughters, ages 7 and 8, and 4-year-old son in Panama City Beach. Junlakan’s varied experience and classic culinary training comes through in the menu at Jazmine, which also is the name of his oldest daughter. A graduate of Rutherford High School, Junlakan served in the U.S. Navy for four years. Since then, his training has including sushi classes in Bethesda, Md., and classic French training at Johnson & Wales in Charlotte, N.C., and he has two other restaurants in North Carolina and Michigan. The dishes that remain on Jazmine’s menu from the previous owners, “good family friends,” have been updated since Junlakan took over in November. “The food was magnicent,” said Sue Huml, who has become a regular at Jazmine with her husband, Vince. The Humls trade winters at their house in Chicago for stays in their Bay Point condo. Jazmine satises their cravings for the cuisine of Thailand, where they have traveled on several occasions. “The heat level we can reduce. We use fresh ingredients and make everything in-house,” said Junlakan, who showed off pictures of his new dishes on the iPad menu. “The (printed) menu is just the word. Whatever you see on the picture (on the screen), it is going to come out looking exactly the same.” Junlakan has Type 1 diabetes, so one of his goals was to make sure he could eat everything on his menu. He also uses a lot of organic produce from local farmers in Blountstown and Wewahitchka. “I already know the dishes I am serving the customers are healthy. A lot of the dishes are gluten-free. Our sauces are made with fresh fruits. All of the oil is 100-percent extra virgin olive oil. I don’t add any granulated sugar. I use palm sugar — fresh and natural, and it is better than processed,” he added. I ordered an unsweet tea to drink, but for those who request sweet, he suggests a green tea option with half the calories. Junlakan rst served me one of his new signature appetizers, Citrus Tuna. “It is a crudo-style tuna or a raw sh and no rice dish,” he explained. “Even customers who have never had raw like this.” I am a sushi and sashimi lover, but I had never had avors quite like this. The pan-seared blue n tuna, seasoned with seven spices, was served with peeled orange slices and sliced avocado on a bed of sauce sprinkled with microgreens. “You have to use tuna, orange and avocado in the same bite,” he said. “For the orange citrus oil, reduce down grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango and strawberries, lime juice, olive oil and palm sugar. All sauces are made freshly in-house.” The dish was very good, a bold spicy citrus mix, one of Junlakan’s favorite avor combinations. Surprisingly, I didn’t need any soy sauce. “I’m trying to get a lot of customers away from soy,” he admitted. “When you don’t have all of that salt, you can taste the sh.” One of the most popular sushi rolls is the Aqua Yaki, lightly breaded with Panko and fried, then topped with spicy tuna and served with a spicy aioli sauce. The Lotus Salmon appetizer — Panko breaded lotus root wheels with fresh red plum and mango purees topped with seared salmon and poached lobster, a mixed berry reduction (raspberry, blueberries, blackberries and cranberries with orange liqueur) and a white ginger garlic sauce — was a beautiful surprise for my senses. “The vegetable tastes like a potato. I import lotus straight from Thailand, a 35-pound case. I peel them up, thin slice and vacuum seal them, then freeze,” he explained. “I serve this to customers and they love it.” The rst bite is like a sweet dessert, but it ends on a buttery note. The thick Lotus chip is substantial but tastes like a potato; dip it in the sauces. Junlakan takes the same JAN WADDY | Crme Brulee is topped with freshly made whipped cream and berries.

I make the broth and strain out all the extra.” The spicy mix was lled with tomatoes, onion and straw mushrooms for a comforting, savory, hearty and refreshing blend all in one. “Thai food is meant to be shared,” Junlakan said, but I had trouble parting with the Three Musketeers — softshell crab, meaty sea scallops and “whole prawns” in a slightly smoky and spicy trio sauce of tamarind, g reduction and garlic, served with a side of fresh steamed broccoli. “We use steamer to steam, don’t add any salt or pepper. I believe steamed vegetables should be left alone,” he said. One of the best selling entrees is the Chicken Basil Wok with fresh Thai pepper, tender chicken and basil, lled with avor and texture from baby corn, green beans, carrots and bamboo, but not too spicy. I didn’t need the rice. The fruit sauces used in some of the appetizers also are used in the desserts. “All desserts are made inhouse,” Junlakan said. “I sell close to 100 crme brulees a week.” Color from the moist red velvet cake came from fresh berry puree, while the crme brulee is topped with berries and freshly made whipped cream.

What’s the most sold drink in the bar? A frozen Jack and Coke, it’s really, really good When someone says “surprise me,” what’s your go-to drink? I have this drink that I found online a long time ago, it’s kind of like a Long Island but way fruitier. It gets five different liquors (vodka, gin, triple sec, tequila, Malibu) and orange juice, pineapple juice, cranberry and a little bit of Sprite. It’s a really good, strong drink but the fruitiness kind of hides it. H ave you created your own con coction? It’s called a Wrecking Ball and it’s made with Jack Daniels Honey, Grand Marnier, Fireball and a little bit of Coke. Which cocktail do you dread making? A Mojito. You have to muddle it and all that stuff. Any bartender hates mak ing Mojitos, but I love bar tending so it doesn’t really matter. What is the strangest thing a customer has ever told you? I’ve had some weird ones. It’s a tough one to think about When do you know when a customer has had too much?

Friday, February 27, 2015 18 • The ENTERTAINER PANAMA CITY — When Dutch Sanger left the Downtown Improvement Board to start his own event planning business, he didn’t give up on the monthly street festival idea he rst brought to downtown in 2004. Friday Fest lls downtown streets with thousands of visitors on the rst Friday of each month from March to November. The event won 53 awards from the Florida Festival and Events Association over the years. It returns in full force on March 6. (More on that later.) In the meantime, Sanger Events and Promotions is debuting a new street party at Panama City Mall’s parking lot beginning tonight. “The Fest” will take place on the fourth Friday of each month through November. Like Friday Fest, the new event promises unique retail/ craft booths, food vendors, classic car and motorcycle displays, children’s activities and family-friendly live bands. And also like Friday Fest, a portion of the vendor fees will be donated to a different local non-pro t organization each month. “We want to give exposure to some of the lesser known non-pro ts that help our community by giving them high visibility at the event and a donation afterwards,” said Sanger, adding that he was excited to see how the community receives The Fest. “With plenty of seating, great Panama City Mall restaurants and other food all in one location, plus two stages will be set up at each end of the venue,” Sanger said, “The Fest will get the community ready for the arrival of spring.” Retail booths open at 5:30 p.m. and the music (tonight’s bands are Reasonable Doubt and The Jake Garrett Band) starts at 6 p.m. Mall merchants are expected to run special promotions to coincide with the event. “We are a community center that focuses on familyoriented, funlled activities, and The Fest ts right in with the type of events that we continue to add to the shopping center,” said Kim Wise, the mall’s marketing/ specialty leasing manager, quoted in a news release. Tonight’s event will also feature a pre-festival “tailgate party” by Hess Entertainment from 4-6 p.m., with food and drinks to prepare you for attending the night’s performance of Heart. The legendary band will be in concert at the Marina Civic Center tonight beginning at 8 p.m. (For concert details, visit “We look for Bay County to really rally behind this community-oriented event,” Sanger said in promotional materials. “It’s a free, fun thing for the whole family to do on a Friday night. You can have dinner together at any number of restaurants or food booths, dance the evening away, and shop for that perfect unique gift, new out t or piece of jewelry, all at the same time.” Meanwhile, DIB Mainstreet Coordinator Valerie Woods assures us that Friday Fest will have all your favorites, as well as something new. The band lineup includes Mulberry Republic at the Sixth Street stage, the Krooked Kilts (a Celtic rock band) at the Fifth Street stage (from 7-9 p.m.), Panama Blues Revue at the Fourth Street stage, and KD in front of Trigo. “Everything else will basically be the same as last year — lots of food and retail vendors, classic and show cars, and a children’s activity section with bounce houses,” she said. “We will also have a demonstration from the Wild West Explorer Post 343. They will be setup in the Visual Arts Center parking lot and will perform when Panama Blues Revue goes on break.” If you count the return of the Entertainer, then that’s three times the reason to TGIF.

Panama City Beach has more than 27 miles of sugar-white sand along the Gulf of Mexico, but for the next four-plus weeks, it will be wall-to-wall people — all of them looking to have a good time. Luckily for them, there’s plenty happening. “I’m anticipating 2015 to be a great year ... not just for Spring Break, but into the summer,” Bikini Beach Motel owner John Geesling told The News Herald recently. “We’re ahead for the year over the last couple of years. It’s really looking good.” The Beach Bash Music Fest at Sharky’s Beach Club runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, sponsored in part by Joose Margarita. It includes featured performers for ticketed events on what they assure us is “the largest stage on the beach.” Many resorts offer specials and entertainment for registered guests only. Holiday Inn, for instance, will have a poolside Luau each Saturday for guests only, with free leis and grass skirts, a DJ, and food and drink specials Two free concerts open to the general public already have been announced, featuring a country music star who has become a Spring Break mainstay over the past six years. However, Luke Bryan has stated that this year’s concerts will be his last as part of Spring Break. “We are excited to announce that The King of Spring Break himself, Mr. Luke Bryan, will be returning for two, free all-ages shows on March 11 and 12,” Spinnaker Beach Club announced on its Facebook page. “This will be his seventh and nal Spring Break appearance, coordinated with the release of his last Spring Break album, ‘Checkin’ Out,’ which debuts on March 10.” Bryan announced the concerts personally on YouTube in January. They will take place at 4 p.m. March 11 and 12 at Spinnaker. (Read more about his concerts in next Friday’s Beach Insider pages.) Plenty of other artists are scheduled to perform during the height of Spring Break. Club La Vela, alone, has more than a dozen events planned, which it is promoting as “one of the biggest lineups” in its history. The La Vela schedule includes: Bone Thugs & Harmony, Feb. 28; Far East Movement, March 3; GrandTheft & Slander, March 8; Woka Floka, March 9; Cash Cash, March 10; Borgore, March 12; Pegboard Nerds, March 13; Vicetone & Caked Up, March 15; Li’l Jon, March 16; T-Pain, March 17; Chainsmokers, March 19; Borgeous, March 20; Scooter & Lavelle, March 22; Juicy J, March 24; Shaggy, March 26; and Rae Sremmurd, March 31. (See the calendar of events on Page 28-29 for details, times and tickets, or visit If you’d rather someone else handle the driving, the Spring Break Party Bus VIP Club Crawl (tickets available at will head out at 7 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday. Over the next seven hours, ticketholders will party at ve hotspots — Hofbru Beer Garden, the Tiki Bar at Sandpiper, Sharky’s, Runaway Island, and Harpoon Harry’s. Cost of the ticket covers the ride, all cover charges, a party guide, a free drink at each location, a souvenir T-shirt and wristband. This ride is guaranteed to sell out, and advanced tickets are strongly suggested. SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY Panama City Beach and unincorporated parts of the county have established new ordinances designed to reduce alcohol consumption and related problems. All alcohol sales end at 2 a.m. in the Panama City Beach city limits and Bay County jurisdiction throughout the month of March. You also must have valid ID on your person to consume alcohol on the beach. (In addition, though this doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with drinking, beachgoers should know that metal shovels are not permitted on the beach, and any holes dug in the sand should not be deeper than two feet.) “All of the new rules have done nothing to deter these spring breakers,” Gheesling said. “They’re nice kids; they’re just down here to have fun.” The beach vendors prepared for the massive in ux of customers with a Spring Break Hospitality Workshop on Feb. 24, gathering business representatives, community leaders and law enforcement to promote best practices for alcohol sales, to raise staff awareness of potential issues, and to advise the local hospitality industry on recent changes to laws. “In preparation for Spring Break, we are pleased to work closely with our local hospitality community and raise awareness of recent local ordinance changes that will cultivate a more safe and enjoyable environment for our businesses and spring breakers alike,” said Panama City Beach Mayor Gayle Oberst, quoted in a news release. The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association provided the training for vendors to learn about alcohol laws, how to avoid serving underage patrons, and preventing over-serving of patrons. The goal is to reduce underage alcohol sales and DUIs by increasing knowledge and professionalism among those selling and serving alcohol. “As Florida’s premier provider of responsible alcohol vendor training, we are passionate about server and seller alcohol education,” said FRLA Vice President of Education and Training Geoff Luebkemann. “We are thrilled to partner with Panama City Beach government and business leaders to actively support a safe and memorable Spring Break season. SAFE BREAK Here are some things every beachgoer needs to know, as well as tips that are especially relevant to Spring Breakers: • Know who and where your friends are. That is, travel with your entourage. Keep tabs on your friends, whether you’re in a club, walking the beach, or playing in the surf. • Sunscreen is also your friend. It may not be hot out, but if there’s sun shining, then you need to use sunscreen. Even on overcast days, it’s possible to get a severe, painful sunburn. • Keep hydrated. Drink plenty of water, and recognize the fact that alcohol consumption contributes to dehydration. • Pay attention to the beach ag system. Those colorful ags you see at public access areas are there to warn you of surf conditions. A purple ag means there is dangerous sealife present (such as jelly sh). Yellow means to use caution as the surf is rough. Red means dangerous surf conditions exist and you should stay out of the water. Two red ags mean beaches are closed: Don’t swim, don’t even wade, because a dangerous current (undertow or riptide) could drag you out into the deeps and drown you. • When it comes to partying, don’t lose your head. If you’re of legal age, and you decide to drink, then do so responsibly. Do not drink and drive, or drink and swim. Keep your ID with you. Don’t drink something offered to you by a stranger, and keep an eye on whatever you are drinking so no one has a chance to slip something bad into it. Stay off balconies if you’ve been drinking. Don’t walk along the strip if you’ve been drinking, as you could get hit by a car. • Clean up after yourself. If you’re on the beach, that means putting your empties and other trash into the garbage cans. Surf, sun, suds, sand and ... so forth ON THE WEB •Social Bay: Keep up with the latest happenings on Spring Break at •Visit and for Spring Break photo galleries and videos.

Pa na ma Cit y 76 972 83 Op en ARTS & ACTS By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 PANAMA CITY BEACH — Ripley’s Believe It or Not! highlights the deadly, ancient art of sword swallowing with free performances Saturday at its Oddituriums worldwide during the eighth annual World Sword Swallower’s Day. Harley Newman, 63, will join three other sword swallowers in the parking lot (or the lobby if it rains) at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium, 9907 Front Beach Road, for the 2 p.m. show. The of cial swallow will be at 2:28:15 to coincide with the date. “It’s fun to look at people’s faces. People think they’re having fun looking at me but they have no idea how much fun I am having looking at them,” said Newman, a member of Sword Swallowers Association International ( SSAI is led by prominent sword swallower and event founder Dan Meyer, whose feats have been chronicled by Ripley’s. Newman has made a career out of testing boundaries. “I come from a long line of teachers, preachers and social workers,” said Newman, who initially went to college to become a doctor before being enticed by clowns at Ringling Bros. Carnival in Beloit, Wis., in the fall of 1970. “I saw a clown do amazing things and thought I could do that.” Later, he began helping out with circus sideshows. “I started sword swallowing nine or 10 years ago, but I’ve been doing stunts a long time – since 1972 ... large beds of nails, walking barefoot on swords, rolling around on broken glass,” Newman said. “I love them. They’re fun. I could teach you in about 30 seconds, but it’s going against all that we have been taught in society; it’s sharp and dangerous.” He found his rst sword in an antique shop for $15 after making sure it had no sharp points. “I knew all the techniques, knew sword swallowers and knew that picking it up was seriously demanding. I didn’t like it; it’s not my favorite thing to do,” Newman admitted. Swallowers use mind-overmatter techniques to control the body and repress natural re exes to insert solid steel blades from 15 to 25 inches down the esophagus and into the stomach. “The sword I am swallowing will be 22 inches long, distance to the bottom of my stomach,” said Newman, who explained that does not include the handle. “I can comfortably do 23 inches of blade.” He admits he likes to have an empty stomach when he swallows swords – or locks. “I have several things I swallow and one sword and I always let people pull it out,” he said. “I won’t just be sword swallowing — that’s for sure.” Saturday’s show is free, but guests can get $4 off rst-class passes or $2 off Ripley’s admission day of event. “I am so out of touch it’s ridiculous,” admitted Newman, who has buried himself in old manuscripts the past couple of years researching the ancient art of sword swallowing. “But put me on stage and I know what I’m doing.” Sword Swallowers return to Ripley’s Harley Newman, 63, will be one of four sword swallowers performing Saturday at Ripley’s in Panama City Beach as part of World Sword Swallower’s Day. — Contributed photo NIGHTLIFE


Friday, February 27, 2015 24 • The ENTERTAINER By TONY SIMMONS 747-5080 | @PCTonyS PANAMA CITY — Strands of Christmas lights crossed overhead in the open warehouse space where members of My Fever met to rehearse downtown. The ringing guitars and vocals at once plaintive and hopeful echoed from another time, but took on a fresh sound under the band’s direction. The unsigned alt-rock band includes Weston Hine (vocals/guitar), his brother Garrett Hine (drums/vocals), Blake Tallent (guitar/vocals), and Casey Morgan (bass/ vocals). They formed My Fever in Panama City over the past year, and are planning to move to Atlanta this spring, after their initial CD is released. They described themselves as “brothers and best friends” who love writing and playing music together. “Wes and I knew each other through the scene,” Blake said. “My desire to play music came from seeing these guys playing (under the name LilyWhite, and with other members involved). That was a pivotal show for me.” Blake interned with Wes during his time as a music leader at Northstar Church in Panama City, but when Wes decided not to chase the dream of forming a touring band, Blake chose to go off to school in Australia. Then, Garrett and Wes traveled to Atlanta to see Kings of Leon in concert. “I had an awakening moment,” Wes said. “We had grown up playing in bands, and though I toyed with the idea, I thought I’d go into church ministries as a vocation.” But Garrett said the Atlanta show got Wes “red up.” They sat down to talk again about forming a band, and Wes decided that — “if Garrett was in” — they could do this. “I was ticked off when I got the text they were forming a band,” Blake said. “I moved half-way across the world, and now you want to be serious?” Blake left Australia and returned to the states. A delayed connecting ight caused him to rent a car and drive from Nashville to Panama City, where he went directly into a rehearsal with the rest of the guys. They have written 22 original songs since then, and recorded their best seven at WarHorse Studios in Miramar Beach with producer Jeremy Grifth. The EP will be called “See the Light,” and the band currently has a Kickstarter campaign under way to help fund the production — which includes a planned release on vinyl. “We tracked live, rather than layering multiple tracks,” Garrett said. “We did overdubs of guitars and backing vocals, but we nished in a week and two days.” Song writing is collaborative for My Fever. Wes said someone might come to rehearsal with an idea or an idea might arise out of a jam session. Garrett said they’ll settle on a riff or chord structure. Blake said they’ll then try to identify the emotional core of the song. “The best ones — the rare ones — write themselves,” Wes said. “As a writer, you have to detach yourself from the lyrics. If you get too literal, you run into problems.” A rock band rst and foremost, the group tries for a timeless sound that is “old and new at the same time,” Wes said. They want to tell stories in their songs, touch emotional chords, and connect with people on a creative level. He mentioned Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan as examples. The group credits Crooke Stewart at the Ghetto Palace in Springeld and Beth Davis at The Little Village in St. Andrews for giving them venues to jam and get their names out to the public. They’ve also played Friday Fest in downtown Panama City last summer, at Mosey’s downtown, at Back Stage Pass in September and Floriopolis in January — all of which were important steps along their journey. “We’re believers in faith and fate,” Wes said. “For us, this is what we want to pursue.” Patches Pub & Grill 4723 Thomas Drive Past the Curve toward St. Andrews Park 850.233.8879 1134647 DIAMOND CROWN CIGAR LOUNGE 850-249-6282 17329 PCB PKWY , PA NAMA CITY BEACH, FL 32431 PCB CIGARS WE CARR Y AR TURO FUENTE, DIAMOND CROWN , PA DRON , GOD OF FIRE, OPUS X LOSTCITY , ACID , CAMACHO , PERDOMO , ROCKY PA TEL, AV O, LA AURORA, TA TU AJE, OLIV A, VIAJE, ASHT ON , MY FA THER, LIGA PRIV ADA, ALEC BRADLEY , KRIST OFF EPC , ZINO AND MUCH MUCH MORE CER TIFIED OPUS X CIGAR DEALER WWW .PCBCIGARS.COM 999 SQ FT .

A sculptor and potter, she works in terra cotta, making tiles, plates and gures. She also teaches drawing at Gulf Coast State College and the Visual Arts Center of Northwest Florida. “I really like the tactility of making things,” she said during a conversation at the Floriopolis gallery in St. Andrews. “I don’t think I could sit in an of ce all day long and be happy.” This year’s artist-inresidence at GCSC, Meghan grew up in Boston, the youngest of six children. “My parents always had art around us,” she said, adding that her father worked for the city Arts Council. “We had these handmade plates, and we would ght over who got which one, because siblings ght about everything.” Her older sister attended a free after-school arts program while in high school, and when Meghan was old enough, she joined the program because “I wanted to be like her.” She spent the four years of high school receiving six hours of art classes each week. Meghan attended the Massachusetts College of Art, which was across an alley from her high school. It was affordable, and she could live at home. In her freshman year, she took a pottery class that changed her life. “It was the most challenging class I had taken up to then, and I was compelled by it,” she said, and by graduation, she was creating ceramic gures. She took a job working 40 hours a week throwing plates, bowls and cups, then got a residency just outside the city, teaching and doing gurative sculptures. She applied to the University of Florida and was accepted as a post-baccalaureate student. “It was my rst time away from Boston,” she said. “It was very hot, and the rst time a lizard came into my house I freaked out. But I really liked living in Florida.” Meghan eventually got into grad school in Nebraska, earned her master’s degree, and joined the AmeriCorps to pay off some of her massive student debt. In that capacity, she worked with elementary schools in blighted neighborhoods, building community gardens with children and organizing big awareness campaigns and events. She also did creative projects and volunteered as a bike mechanic at a co-op. Finally, she was offered a job with the city. “But I knew if I stayed there another year, I would end up living in Lincoln, Neb., for my entire life,” she said. “I really missed ceramics, and I was teaching but I wasn’t teaching art.” That’s when she learned about GCSC’s Artist in Residence program. She arrived in Panama City in time for the 2014 spring semester, and was invited to remain through the 2015 school year. She was already familiar with Tammy Marinuzzi and Pavel G. Amromin, assistant professors in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Department, who were also in Gainesville when Meghan was a student there. “We shared a car ride once,” she said. “I knew how they drove, but I didn’t know them that well. But I’m a gurative artist, they’re gurative artists, so we kind of feed off of each other.” A solo show of her work will open at GCSC Feb. 27 and be on display through March. Meghan’s artwork is shaped by her personal experiences, according to a statement on her website (MeghanSullivanCeramics. com) — speci cally, being part of a large family and growing up in an urban environment. She calls herself “a storyteller,” for whom the journey is as important as the destination. “While my background has in uenced the tone and content, it is not straightforward autobiography,” she said. “One speci c instance in a larger experience is used and extrapolated from in order to create the nal composition. ... While the conclusion may not be clear, the meaning of my work is found in the pondering of it.” Breathing life into feats of clay MEGHAN SULLIVAN Medium: Terra cotta Show: Feb. 27-March 2015 at the Amelia Center Gallery, Gulf Coast State College, Panama City Details: MeghanSullivanCeramics. com or MeghanSullivan touch ARTIST’S TONY SIMMONS |

Friday, February 27, 2015 32 • The ENTERTAINER Cole: ‘DUFF’ imitates better icks The new high school comedy “The DUFF” has some elements working in its favor. It has some fun comic set pieces, and a great lead in Mae Whitman (as Bianca), but it also has some lazy writing, incredibly thin characters, a faux-style that never seems fresh and a confused message. The story follows Bianca, a zombie movie fan who wears plaid (that’s really all we know about her) and has two cooler friends. She soon learns from her neighbor, the school’s football star, that she is their DUFF — designated ugly fat friend. She goes on to help him with chemistry in exchange for his help to make her more “dateable.” At times it has some genuine high school comedy, but it never peaks. It’s like Kevin Smith directed a Disney Channel movie. It’s edgy but in a mannered sort of way that reeks of middle-aged execs making character decisions for teenagers. A big problem with the lm is that Whitman simply isn’t fat or ugly in any way, and even her two-dimensional character is way cooler than the character we’re led to believe she is. There’s no way this girl only has two friends. The guy is worse. His arc takes him from jerk of legendary proportions to something else, I guess. I don’t want to ruin the predictable turn of events. “The DUFF” is about the silliness of labels and clichs, but it carefully follows every clich in order to label itself label-free. The irony is that “The DUFF” is itself an ugly imitation of better movies that kids will pass right through on their way to its better-looking friends, an ethic better applied to lms than people.

Friday, February 27, 2015 The ENTERTAINER • 33 The soundtrack should be fun for kids. It’s a fun, eclectic assembly of songs ranging from Fall Out Boy to Daft Punk to Joan Jett. Rating: 1 out of 5 stars. Longtime Panama City resident Cole Schneider, born in Long Beach, Calif., always has preferred popcorn and a movie to a long walk on the beach. Matt: ‘DUFF’ overreaches with clichs There’s nothing worse than a near-miss. Unfortunately, that describes “The DUFF.” Next to its genuine cuteness and willingness to try faux-new stuff, it never quite nails its tone. Its unfocused perspective is amateurish. Consistently over-reaching in multiple areas (bullying, cliques, friendship, dating, divorce) the negatives ultimately overshadow the decent if familiar teen-based humor. Mae Whitman plays the titular DUFF, a scholastically-inclined horror-lm fan learning to deal with the idea that she may be the ugly one in her group of friends. From there, the rules by which the movie and characters live are juvenile and dumb. The dialogue, which boasts decent “Gilmore Girls”-esque cutesiness, often feels less like real people talking and more like out-oftouch adults trying desperately to understand youth culture. Whitman, however, mostly comes out unscathed. She’s cute, and smartly funny as the awkward focus of this even more awkward lm. Surrounding her, though, are a bevy of Old Navy mannequins trying to pass as recognizable and funny teenagers. With zero complexity and even less charisma, these “mactors” bring the lm to a halt. More egregious is the confused ethics. Bullying, a recent hot-button social topic, is the focus here, but the handling of it is lazy and ill-advised. The moral could potentially cause as much bullying as it prevents. Of course this could be overlooked if the lm was just funnier or more unique. As is, “The DUFF” is a movie with a lot of potential but never breaks any new ground. In the shadow of “Mean Girls,” “Clueless,” “Easy A,” and “21 Jump Street,” it’s sadly a bad rip-off of much better teen lms. Rating: 2 out of 5 stars. Panama City Beach musician Matt Greene, who has a bachelor’s in philosophy from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, always has enjoyed viewing, debating and critiquing all forms and aspects of lm, from foreign lms to slapstick comedies.
