By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB P ANAMA CITY BEACH — The Beach is booming. Bed tax collections and sales tax revenues show visitors are returning to Panama City Beach in record numbers. But as the Beach recovers from the Great Recession and Deepwater Horizon oil spill, it’s not just visitors who are contributing to the economy. More full-time residents are moving their families over the Hathaway Bridge, eating at restaurants and shopping in stores. According to Census data, in Panama City Beach the number of people 18 to 64 years old in 2000 was 5,167. That number grew to 7,988 in 2010, for an increase of 2,821. That also means more children attend Beach schools, which has resulted in overcrowding at two elementary schools with no end in sight. Steve Moss, Bay District School Board chairman, said there now are plenty of affordable condominiums, apartments SEE CAMPUS CRUNCH | A4 WEST BAY COMING BACK TO LIFE A4 INSIDE March 1, 2015 By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman PANAMA CITY BEACH — The quiet months of winter are over. With the first influx of spring breakers descending on Bay County this weekend, it’s crunch time for the many hotels and resorts that cater to the college crowds — somewhat a necessary evil for the local economy. “As far as busy goes and revenue goes, Spring Break is definitely second to our summer season,” said Nikki Wilson, a property manager with Emerald Beach Properties, which manages about 30 units on Panama City Beach. “For March 7th through the 21st, we’re pretty much booked solid.” Based on Spring Break schedules for colleges and booking rates, hoteliers expect the first and fourth weeks of March to be “soft weeks.” Most of the traffic will be during the two middle weeks. “As a property manager, the owners expect to get revenue that month,” said Wilson, who added that the business provides a nice boost after the winter season. “We definitely need to get some sort of revenue on the books.” Boardwalk Beach Resort, a popular spot for spring breakers, also is expecting a busy season. Matt Culpepper, marketing and media specialist for the resort, said it is pacing about 15 percent ahead of last year for advanced bookings for March. “We are poised for another successful Spring Break season for both college students and families,” Culpepper said. “Not only are we seeing an increase in overall reservations, but we have also noticed that the booking window is expanding.” Culpepper agreed with Wilson on the two busiest weeks, and said the last week in March follows closely behind. For Boardwalk, higher reservation rates also extend into April this year, when many families vacation during breaks from elementary and secondary schools. “Where the Easter holiday falls is typically a strong indicator of Spring Break demand for both college and families, and it’s holding true again this year,” said Culpepper, who noted a much earlier Easter this year than in 2014. “Reservations for the first two PCB hotels brace for breakers ON THE WEB For a related photo gallery, visit SEE PCB HOTELS | A4 LOCAL Sword swallowers dazzle crowds at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not | B1 SPORTS Arnold’s offense stalls against quality pitching C1

NATION & WORLD B riefs Page A2 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 The Associated Press SAN DIEGO Authorities seize 15 tons of marijuana Federal authorities have seized more than 15 tons of marijuana in a near-record bust at a border crossing in Southern California. The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday that more than 1,200 packages of marijuana valued at almost $19 million were seized this week from a truck-trailer carrying mattresses and cushions at the Otay Mesa border crossing. Authorities arrested the truck’s 46-year-old driver and seized the vehicle late Thursday. The newspaper said the seizure was the second-largest in a single incident at a U.S. border crossing, trailing a more than 35,000-pound bust in 2013. FAIRBANKS, Alaska Blind dog rescued after being lost for 2 weeks A blind dog who wandered away from her Ester home during a cold snap has been reunited with her owner. The 11-year-old Labrador retriever named Madera ventured away from home on Feb. 6, when the temperature dipped below 40 degrees. Her owner Ed Davis said he didn’t expect to find her alive. Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported a man riding a bike accompanied by a bell-wearing dog located Madera in the woods last week, about a half-mile from the Davis’ home. Davis said his dog lost 14 pounds but is in good health. The man who rescued her, Constantine Khrulev, asked for the $100 reward money to go to the Fairbanks Animal Shelter Fund. Davis increased the donation to $250. Madera is completely blind because of an autoimmune disease. CANTON, Mass. Hockey players escape injury in rink roof collapse A youth hockey team escaped without injury when part of a snow-weighted roof collapsed at a skating rink on Saturday morning, officials said. Police in Canton said the rear portion of the roof at the Metropolis Skating Rink began to fail as a Norwood youth team was inside, but they were able to get out along with parents and rink workers. All are safe and accounted for. Norwood Nuggets coach Chris Sharkey told Boston’s WBZ-AM that some children were in the locker room and some were on the ice, “and then we heard a snap and knew something was wrong. “We started to get off the ice and started screaming for all the kids, and the second snap came,” Sharkey said. “Then it just turned into complete ‘get off the ice as quick as possible and get these kids out of the structure,’ ” he said. Canton Fire Chief Charlie Doody told the Patriot Ledger of Quincy a coach was propelled across the rink by air pressure from the collapse, which also damaged part of the building’s front facade. Doody said things could have been much worse if the collapse had happened a couple hours later. LOS ANGELES Dress resembling stolen Nyong’o gown found A white dress that strongly resembles the custom gown taken from Lupita Nyong’o’s hotel room earlier this week turned up Friday under a bathroom sink in the same hotel, a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s official said. The dress found at a West Hollywood hotel “greatly resembles” the pearl-adorned Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa dress the actress wore to Sunday’s Academy Awards, sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said. Detectives were trying to verify whether the recovered dress is the same one Nyong’o wore, she said. One of the actress’ representatives reported the dress was stolen from her room at the London Hotel late Wednesday. Authorities placed its value at $150,000, although experts said it could have fetched more on the black market. Women’s Wear Daily reported that the dress was made of 6,000 crystal pearls on silk lam and that its value was undetermined. WORSHIP IN THE SNOW BOSTON (AP) — Religious leaders in snowbound New England are beginning to ask themselves how on Earth their houses of worship will make ends meet after all these acts of God. Churches, synagogues and mosques report attendance is down at services, as poorly timed winter storms have hit on or close to days of worship. And getting the faithful to come out is challenging, with limited parking and treacherously icy sidewalks plaguing the region. For many places of worship, that has meant donations are drying up just as costs for snow removal, heating and maintenances are soaring. “You have this perfect storm of people not being able to go to worship and so not bringing in offerings, combined with much higher than usual costs,” said Cindy Kohlmann, who works with Presbyterian churches in Greater Boston and northern New England. She said the financial toll could force some of the almost 60 Presbyterian congregations in the region to close. The churches have collectively requested at least $300,000 from the national church’s disaster relief fund to help cover their bills. At the Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Boston, the Rev. Thomas Domurat said he will hold two collections at Sunday Masses in an effort to gather more donations for snow expenses. Mazen Duwaji, executive director at the Islamic Council of New England, said the mosque he attends in Sharon, Mass., is hoping to make up its shortfalls during its annual fundraiser in March. A number of religious leaders said donations are not down as drastically as they could be, given that attendance has dipped anywhere from 15 to 50 percent. Online donations increasingly are a reliable revenue source, helping many weather the lean attendance months. But as the winter weather wears on, expenses are piling up. At Epworth United Methodist Church in Worcester, the Rev. Patricia Miller Fernandes is waiting to see what the final bill will be after rooftop ice loosened bricks and mortar, sending building materials crashing to the ground and leaving a gaping hole in the roof. “We’re trying not to think about that until the reality comes in,” Miller Fernandes says of the repair costs. “You always go to the worst-case scenario and I’m not trying to go there. We’ll have to see what comes back from the insurance company.” Religious leaders say attendance declines aren’t just affecting the bottom line. Many community programs and activities are suffering, from cultural events and lectures to addiction support groups, financial literacy classes and free medical clinics. “People are hunkering down at night and they’re not coming back out,” said Alan Teperow, executive director of the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts and a member of Temple Emanuel in Newton, an affluent Boston suburb. “Once you’re home, it’s difficult to say you’ll go back out and face the frigid temperatures.” AP Top, Custodian George Blomquist clears snow from the sidewalk Feb. 16 in front of Our Lady of the Angels Church after a weekend snowstorm in Worcester, Mass.

Several students arrived wearing keffiyehs, the traditional Palestinian headscarves, while in the front row, a young man sat draped in the Israeli flag. As the meeting opened, a student government officer reviewed the rules of debate, warning physical confrontations would not be tolerated. “We want this to be safe for everyone,” she said. It was time for a ritual that has become increasingly commonplace on many American college campuses: a student government body, in this case at the University of California, Davis, would take up Israeli policy toward the Palestinians, and decide whether to demand their school divest from companies that work with the Jewish state. In the United States, Israel’s closest ally, the decadeold boycott-divestment-sanctions, or BDS, movement is making its strongest inroads by far on college campuses. No U.S. school has sold off stock and none is expected to do so anytime soon. Still, the current academic year is seeing an increasing number of divestment drives at colleges and universities, stretching from the University of California system to Northwestern University and beyond. Since January alone, student governments at four universities have taken divestment votes. While the campaigns unfold around resolutions largely proposed by chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine, outside groups have become increasingly involved — from American Muslims for Palestine and the Quakers’ American Friends Service Committee, on one side, to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, on the other. At some campuses, candidates for student government are being asked their views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The heated rhetoric has led to claims of anti-Semitism and of infringement on free speech. “I don’t think anyone is surprised when they hear a BDS movement is coming,” said Ira Stup, a 2009 Columbia University graduate and former director of J Street U, the college arm of the liberal pro-Israel lobby J Street, which opposes BDS. “It’s becoming a regular occurrence.” “It’s creating a debate. It’s creating a significant amount of conversation in the entire community and it’s set on the terms the activists want it to be set on,” said Rahim Kurwa, a doctoral candidate and member of Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of California, Los Angeles. The boycott-divestment-sanctions movement grew from a 2005 international call from Palestinian groups as an alternative to armed struggle over control of the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, which Israel captured in 1967 and Palestinians seek for an independent state. BDS advocates say the movement, based on the campaign against South African apartheid decades ago, is aimed at Israeli policy, not Jews, in response to two decades of failed peace talks and expanded Israeli settlement of the West Bank and east Jerusalem. But supporters of Israel say that boycotting the country is no way to make peace, especially since many BDS supporters do not differentiate between protesting Jewish settlements on occupied lands or Israel as a whole. WASHINGTON (AP) — For six years, President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have been on a collision course over how to halt Iran’s nuclear ambitions, a high-stakes endeavor both men see as a centerpiece of their legacies. The coming weeks will put the relationship between their countries, which otherwise remain stalwart allies, to one of its toughest tests. Netanyahu is bound for Washington for an address to Congress on Tuesday aimed squarely at derailing Obama’s cherished bid for a diplomatic deal with Teh ran. At the same time, Sec retary of State John Kerry and other international negotiators will be in Swit zerland for talks with the Iranians, trying for a frame work agreement before a late March deadline. In between are Israel’s elections March 17, which have heightened the politi cal overtones of Netanya hu’s visit to Washington. The prime minister is speaking to Congress at the request of Republicans. His visit was coordinated without the Obama admin istration’s knowledge, deep ening tensions between two leaders who have never shown much affection for each other. Jeremy Ben-Ami, presi dent of the liberal Jewish advocacy group J Street, said Netanyahu was “cross ing some lines that haven’t been crossed before and is putting Israel into the parti san crossfire in a way it has not been before.” But the largest proIsrael lobby in the U.S., the American Israel Pub lic Affairs Committee, has tried to play down the partisanship. “AIPAC welcomes the prime minister’s speech to Congress and we believe that this is a very impor tant address,” spokesman Marshall Wittmann said. “We have been actively encouraging senators and representatives to attend and we have received an overwhelmingly positive response from both sides of the aisle.” Almost a dozen Demo cratic lawmakers plan to sit out Netanyahu’s speech, calling it an affront to the president. Stopping Iran from building a nuclear bomb has become a defining challenge for both Obama and Netanyahu, yet one they have approached far differently. For Obama, getting Iran to verifiably prove it is not pursuing nuclear weapons would be a bright spot in a foreign policy arena in which numerous outcomes are uncertain and would validate his early political promise to negotiate with Iran without conditions. Netanyahu considers unacceptable any deal with Iran that doesn’t end its nuclear program entirely and opposes the diplomatic pursuit as one that mini mizes what he considers an existential threat to Israel. Tehran says its nuclear program is peaceful and exists only to produce energy for civilian use. Obama, Netanyahu on collision course 6 years in the making AP Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu walks past a window overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem during statements to the press on Monday.


Page A4 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 FROM THE FRONT By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB WEST BAY — To help relieve overcrowding on the Beach, Bay Dis trict School officials will reopen West Bay Ele mentary in August for the next school year. However, which stu dents will attend the school won’t be decided until after a series of meetings in the next few months. Superintendent Bill Husfelt said he will bring a proposal to the School Board this month about handling Beach school overcrowding. The district then will host public hearings to get comments from the public. Opening West Bay will buy the district a few years while officials work on a long-term overcrowding solution, School Board Chairman Steve Moss said. Build ing a new school is inevi table, he said. Husfelt also says a new elementary school might be needed. Last month, the side walks at West Bay were being pressure-washed in preparation for the school to reopen. “It’s in good condi tion,” School Board member Jerry Register said when the decision was made to reopen it. West Bay was built in 1950 to serve people in that area, former school secretary Betty Joyner said. It was closed in 2009 for financial reasons. Saying West Bay can be a “blank slate,” Moss has talked about working with curriculum officials to make it unlike any ele mentary in the county. For example, Moss said West Bay can have a STEM-based cur riculum to concentrate on science, technology, engineering and math. By making technol ogy a focal point, he said parents would want to send their children there. Maybe every stu dent at the school would have an iPad or laptop, Moss said. “That’s where the jobs are,” Moss said of STEM-related careers. CAMPUS CRUNCH from Page A1 Photos by P ATTI B LA K E | The News HeraldWest Bay Elementary closed in 2009, but will reopen next school year. Below, Bay District Schools worker Roger Pippin tears up concrete to fix a tripping hazard on Tuesday. West Bay coming back to life and single-family homes on the Beach. He said the board saw the growth, but enrollment accelerated faster than they expected. Moss drew a contrast with schools in Panama City, which he said have “plateaued.” School Board members recently con sidered solutions to growing enrollment, especially at Breakfast Point Academy and Patronis Elementary. As a short-term solution, they agreed to reopen West Bay, which was closed in 2009 because it had too few students. A long-term fix might be more compli cated. Four options are being considered: Build a new elementary school adja cent to Surfside that would hold 600 stu dents. Surfside would become a K-8 school with the 600-student elementary school. Build a middle school addition at Surfside. Breakfast Point would become a K-5 school. Build a K-5 school at a currently unde cided location. The new K-5 school would expand to a K-8 school at some point as needed. Redraw attendance zones county wide to shift Beach students to existing classroom space to the east. Lunch at 10:10 at Patronis Overcrowding is visible at Beach schools. At Patronis Elementary by 1:30 p.m. on a recent school day, cars already were lined up waiting for the 2 p.m. bell. Acting Principal Brooke Loyed said the growth puts a strain on school infrastruc ture and the playground, and has made the school traffic rough. To have time to serve all the students, lunch starts at 10:10 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. most days, Loyed said. There are nine kindergarten classes with 18 students each. When she started, Loyed said Patronis was pre-K to fifth grade. Now, pre-K has moved to Arnold High, which Loyed said has helped Patronis. She knows rezoning is an option, and wor ries what that could do to Patronis, which she considers a neighborhood school. “We like that tradition and sense of com munity,” Loyed said. Rezoning likely But rezoning is probable, Moss said. Issues in the Beach District 5 hit close to home for Moss. Not only is it his district as a School Board member, but he also has two children in school there. Moss said though people don’t like to hear the “r” word, it will come up. “Rezoning the Beach is going to be a foregone conclusion,” Moss said. It has been several years since the dis trict has gone through rezoning, Moss said. While many students and parents don’t like it, district must be efficient with space, he said. John Bozarth, Bay District Schools’ director of facilities, is a key figure in solving the problem. Spread out on his desk recently were several pages of slides from a presen tation about Beach school overcrowding. While there is classroom space in Pan ama City, the Beach has very little room for growth, Bozarth said. Overcrowding is con centrated in elementary schools, and those students eventually will move to middle schools and high schools. “It’s a trend that’s coming my way,” said Bozarth, who added that the growth can be traced back to 2009. He said rezoning is a logical option. Peo ple never want to go from west to east; par ents don’t like the drive time, he said. School expansion is on the horizon, and the lead time for that is three years, he said. The two concerns for Bozarth are to get something going and doing it in a costefficient way. A line of cars at Breakfast Point At Breakfast Point Academy, as at Patro nis, there was a line of cars at the school by 7:40 a.m. one recent day. A police officer directed traffic and the parking lot, with scant few spaces open, had signs saying not to park on the grass. Principal Keri Weatherly said the acad emy has been creative in handling enroll ment growth. Breakfast Point uses every room and resource available; there are 11 portable classrooms behind the gym. Although the school is large, it has a fam ily feel, she said. “We love our kids,” Weatherly said. Weatherly said she isn’t sure if there is a perfect solution to overcrowding. Regard less, for Weatherly the general theme comes back to the students and their families and the connection educators have with them. “We know our parents and kids,” Weath erly said. weeks of April, largely referred to as Family Spring Break, continue to outpace last year’s numbers.” However, other prop erties on the Beach won’t be breaking any records this season. At the Chateau Motel on Front Beach Road, bookings are down about 25 percent compared to last year. Manager Nick Armstrong chalks that up to negative public ity, decreased market ing efforts and stricter laws regarding alcohol consumption. The Bay County Tour ist Development Council (TDC) “increased its over all budget but reduced its Spring Break advertising budget by 100 percent, and absolutely no dollars were budgeted or spent to promote Spring Break or Panama City Beach as a destination,” Armstrong said. “This large budget advertising is crucial in competing with other Spring Break destinations such as Daytona (Beach), South Padre Island, Fort Lauderdale, Cancun, etc.” Also, Armstrong said the earlier bar closing times have created secu rity concerns among the motel staff. While the pre vious 4 a.m. closure time allowed for a gradual return for partying spring breakers, he expects a “mass exodus” to flood the motel lobby shortly after the bars close at 2 a.m. in Panama City Beach. “The Chateau has increased our security budget. However, it is definitely not ideal to do so when sales are down, but what choice do we have?” he said. “I believe there are things that can be changed or modified to increase the safety and appeal of Spring Break on Panama City Beach, but I do not feel as though we are heading in the right direction.” TDC director Dan Rowe said that while the agency opted not to market Spring Break to students this year, it is using resources to push a campaign to remind stu dents to “Spring Break responsibly.” Overall, he said he anticipates a busy spring season. March tradition ally is the third biggest month for room nights and visitor spending on the Beach, behind June and July. “March will be fairly strong and April will be fairly strong,” Rowe said. “With the weather up north right now, with the snow this week I think people will want to come down and have some fun in the sun.” PCB HOTELS from Page A1


NATIO N & WORLD Sunday, March 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A5 1134875 SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Jennifer Margu lis has her kids vaccinated and she gets shots herself. But she doesn’t like the idea of government telling parents they must get their children immunized. That’s why she spoke at a recent legis lative hearing to oppose an amendment to an Oregon bill that takes aim at the state’s highest-in-the-nation rate of non-medical vaccine exemptions. “I really feel this is an assault on parental freedom and medical choices. I am really strongly in favor of vaccines. I get into trouble among people in south ern Oregon for speaking out about why I chose to vaccinate my kids,” said Mar gulis, a parent from Ashland, a city in Oregon with a high vaccination exemp tion rate. If the bill passes, Oregon would join Mississippi and West Virginia as the only states allowing exemptions solely for medical reasons, and no longer for religious, philosophical or personal rea sons. Washington, California, and Ver mont are considering similar bills that remove either the personal, religious or philosophical exemptions. Last year, Oregon put into effect a law requiring parents with kindergart ners to consult with a health profes sional or watch a one-hour educational video before shots are waived. That bill was prompted by Oregon’s high rate of exemptions for kindergartners — about 7 percent. Nationwide, the median exemp tion rate was 1.8 percent for last year’s class, according to the Centers for Dis ease Control and Prevention. Exemption figures for this year have not been released. But some legislators say they are hearing of anti-vaccine par ents who go through the motions when they attend the consultations. “People can look at the video at school-based health centers and they’ll sit there and multitask,” like looking at their iPhones, said state Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, D-Portland. “Most of them go in saying pretty clearly, ‘Ok I’ll sit through this thing, but it’s not gonna change my mind.’ ” Oregon considers banning most vaccine exemptions MOSCOW (AP) — Maybe it was Islamic extremists who killed Boris Nemtsov. Or someone offended by his love life. Or agents of a Western power that will stop at noth ing to disfigure President Vladimir Putin’s image and drive him from power. Russian investigators, politicians and political commentators on state television on Saturday covered much ground in look ing for the reason Nemtsov was gunned down in the heart of Moscow, but they sidestepped one possibility — that he was murdered for his relentless opposition to Putin. Nemtsov, a 55-year-old former deputy prime minister and leading Russian liberal political figure for the past two decades, was gunned down shortly before midnight Friday as he walked across a bridge near the Kremlin with a female companion. The killing came just hours after a radio interview in which he called on Moscow residents to join an opposition rally today to protest Putin’s handling of the economic crisis and his “mad, aggressive and deadly policy of war against Ukraine.” After his death, organizers canceled the rally and instead called for a demonstration to mourn him today in central Moscow. The city gave quick approval, in contrast to its usual slow and grudging permission for opposition rallies. The mourning march could serve to gal vanize the beleaguered and marginalized opposition, or it could prove to be a brief catharsis after which emotions dissipate. Popular support for Putin has remained above 80 percent in recent months, despite the severe economic recession and soaring inflation. Russia’s leading investigative agency said it was looking into several possible motives for the killing. The first possibility, the Investigative Committee said, was that the murder was aimed at destabilizing the political situation in the country and Nemtsov was a “sacri ficial victim for those who do not shun any method for achieving their political goals.” This suggestion echoed comments by Putin’s spokesman and other Russian poli ticians that the attack was a “provocation” against the state. The term “sacrificial victim” also was the same one Putin used three years ago when he warned that his political opponents were planning to kill one of their own and then blame it on his government. Investigators: Nemtsov a possible ‘sacrificial victim’ AP A man reacts Saturday as he lays flowers at the place where Boris Nemtsov, a charismatic Russian opposition leader and sharp critic of President Vladimir Putin, was gunned down, at Red Square in Moscow, Russia.

Gi ve yo ur se lf a FI GH TI NG chanc e WASHINGTON (AP) — Cali fornia lawmakers and advocacy groups are ramping up efforts to win national monument designa tion for four scenic vistas in the state, from vast stretches of the Mojave Desert to redwood stands along the Pacific Coast Highway to canyons and mountains near the state’s famous wine country. The designation typically takes lands already owned by the gov ernment and walls them off from new mining, roads and power lines. Recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking and horse back riding are commonly allowed, though each national monument has its own dos and don’ts. Supporters of the proposed monuments in California are pursuing two paths. The first is through legislation. Many Repub licans are wary, though. So, sup porters are also placing greater emphasis on Plan B: Executive action from President Barack Obama. The narrowing window for that option is adding urgency to their efforts. Presidents have the authority to designate new national monu ments through the Antiquities Act, and Obama has approved 16 so far, including three more last week. California groups took notice. “We think that’s exciting, and we merit the same consideration in the near term,” said Bob Sch neider, senior policy director for Tuleyome, a conservation group that seeks to preserve 360,000 acres in northern California as a national monument. The group has worked with Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson, who has filed bills in three consecutive congressional sessions calling for what would be named the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument. In December, he brought in Interior Secretary Sally Jewell for a tour and to hear from local residents. “The majority party is not willing to participate in the debate,” Thompson said. “If the president is willing, I’m all for him protect ing the land through an executive order.” Many of the communities in Thompson’s district support his efforts. One local chamber of com merce projected that a national monument designation would generate an additional $50 million in economic activity in the subse quent five years though increased visitors. But another local cham ber has fretted that a national monument designation could impose additional requirements on already overburdened agencies with no guarantee of additional resources. Any national monuments legis lation moving through the House would likely have to go first through a subcommittee chaired by Repub lican U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock of California. He’s clearly skeptical. “The Republicans want to pre serve and enhance the public’s right to enjoy the public’s land. Democrats are seeking to further restrict public access,” McClintock said. “That’s the fundamental, core issue.” Like Thompson, Sen. Dianne Feinstein also is getting restless. She first proposed legislation in 2009 calling for two new national monuments in the Mojave and Sonoran deserts and reintroduced a version of the bill in early Feb ruary. Feinstein favors legislative action, but she said in an emailed statement that executive action may be necessary if the bill stalls. Feinstein, a Democrat, said she would prefer the legislative route because an executive order would simply create two new national monuments while her legislation includes more land for national parks, wilderness and off-highway recreation. Numerous compro mises crafted over the years would be lost. The Wildlands Conservancy helped the federal government acquire large segments of both pro posed monuments in Feinstein’s bill through donations of money and land. The group was delighted when Jewell visited the proposed Sand to Snow National Monument last year and a vehicle in her secu rity detail had to stop to let a big horn sheep cross the road.

(AP) — Investor Warren Buffett believes his company, Berk shire Hathaway, will con tinue to thrive for decades thanks to its vast and varied collection of “remarkable businesses” and invest ments, which will help it withstand challenges in any one sector. Buffett’s annual letter to shareholders was posted online Saturday. This year he reflected on 50 years of lead ing Berkshire and its future. Buffett reiterated that Berkshire’s huge size will keep it from achieving gains nearly as strong as in the past. And he defended Berkshire’s decentralized structure as the ideal way to combat bureaucracy and maximize gains. “I think Berkshire will outperform the average American company, but our advantage, if any, won’t be great,” Buffett said. But Berkshire’s financial strength that comes from owning more than 80 compa nies and holding large stakes in public companies will help the company endure what ever the world throws it. “I believe the chance of any event causing Berkshire to experience financial prob lems is essentially zero,” Buffett said. “We will always be prepared for the thou sand-year flood: in fact, if it occurs we will be selling life jackets to the unprepared.” The 84-year-old investor didn’t name his eventual suc cessor, but he did discuss the qualities that person will need. The comments this year will only add to specu lation about which Berkshire executives are on the short list to be the next CEO. “My successor will need one other particular strength: the ability to fight off the ABCs of business decay, which are arrogance, bureaucracy and complacency,” Buffett said. “When these corporate can cers metastasize, even the strongest of companies can falter.” Buffett’s letter is one of the best-read reports in the business world because of his track record and knack for explaining complicated issues. Berkshire said its fullyear profit grew 2 percent, to $19.87 billion, or $12,092 per Class A share. That’s up from $19.48 billion, or $11,850 per share. Buffett said BNSF railroad struggled with service prob lems last year as a strong grain harvest combined with the surge and crude oil ship ments clogged rail lines just as extreme cold weather took hold. BNSF still contributed nearly $3.9 billion to Berk shire’s earnings, up from the previous year’s $3.8 billion. Buffett said BNSF plans to spend $6 billion on upgrades to its rail network this year, but he apologized for the problems. Buffett recommended owning stocks as the key to building wealth over time, but investors must avoid the common mistakes of trad ing too often and paying high investment fees. Buffett reflects on his firm’s success and strength WARREN BUFFETT

The mass killings by Japanese forces, the loved ones lost and the desperation are etched in their minds, as is the elation when American forces finally rescued them in the closing months of World War II. The U.S. liberated the Philippine capital from the Japanese, but not before Manila was destroyed and more than 100,000 civilians killed. About 16,000 Japanese soldiers and 1,000 U.S. troops also died in the fighting from Feb. 3 to March 3, 1945. Manila was the secondmost devastated city in World War II after Warsaw, Poland, said historian Ricardo Jose of the University of the Philip pines. He called the city “one of the worst battlefields in the world.” When the Japanese invaded the Philippines, then an American colony, in 1941, Gen. Douglas MacAr thur, commander of the U.S. forces there, declared Manila an “open city” to spare it from destruction. But when the Americans returned, the Japanese decided to fight to the last man, from building to building, and burned entire city blocks. Civilians died from malnu trition and American shelling, but mostly, historians agree, at the hands of Japanese troops. Four survivors shared their stories with The Associ ated Press: Roderick Hall was 9 when the Japanese occupied Manila. The British boy and his family lived in a home in the Malate district, though his father was interned with thousands of foreigners at the University of Santo Tomas. In late January 1945, before American forces closed in on the capital, the Japanese barged into the family home, searched every room and found what the raiders claimed was an illegal radio transmitter. Hall, now a business investor, said it was just a short-wave radio the family listened to for news outside Manila. All members of the house hold — including Hall and his brother, his mother, his grandmother, an uncle, and aunt and the family’s helpers — were brought to Manila’s Masonic Temple. Hall, then 12, and his brother and the house help ers were later released. They were allowed to bring food to their mother and the oth ers for several days. Then the Japanese stopped the visits. About 200 people were massacred at the temple, but Hall learned only recently from a war document that his mother was listed among dozens executed at Fort San tiago, a centuries-old Spanish garrison used by occupation troops to torture and kill sus pected guerrillas. For a while, Hall had hoped that his mother some how escaped and was safe with the guerrillas. “About two years later, I was away in school. My father wrote and said, ‘I am going to marry again.’ And that’s when I started to cry and broke down and had to admit to myself that this hope that my mother was alive some where was no longer the case.” For someone who was 4 when the Japanese began bombing raids on Manila in December 1941, Juan “Johnny” Rocha remem bers a lot from the war. Per haps because, when those first bombs were falling, he was being rushed for an appendectomy — not in the operating room, but to the hospital basement, where it was safer. Rocha, who later would become the Philippine ambassador to Spain, once saw a man hanging dead from a telephone pole, with a sign that said he was a thief. He remembers his family using huge wads of devalued Japanese wartime currency to buy basic commodities, and privately singing “God Bless America,” and “I Love My Own, My Native Land” at home. “The most remarkable thing was whenever we passed in front of a Japa nese sentry we had to all bow, and if we didn’t bow, he would slap us or kick us or whatever,” he said. 70 years on, survivors keep memory of Battle of Manila alive AP photos Left: James Litton gestures Feb. 5 during an interview in Manila, Philippines.

Democrats lacked the votes Friday to force Repub licans to fund the depart ment for a year with no strings. Still, even some Republicans say party lead ers are on a perilous path with a very public ideological struggle only highlighting the GOP’s inability to pass contested legislation and possibly worsening its weak relationship with Hispanic voters. Worst of all, numerous lawmakers said, Republi can leaders have offered no plausible scenario for a suc cessful ending, so they sim ply are delaying an almost certain and embarrassing defeat. Conservatives defend their doggedness. They say they courageously are keeping promises to oppose President Barack Obama’s liberalization of deportation policies, which they con sider unconstitutional. Sev eral said their constituents support their stand, while others said the issue tran scends politics. As a deadline fast approached Friday night, the House agreed to extend the department’s funding for a week. But some in both parties said the Repub licans were losing political ground. “It’s bad policy and bad politics,” said Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, who once over saw his party’s House cam paigns. The short-term fix, he said, “doesn’t help the country, and it just shows that they’re incapable of governing” despite hold ing House and Senate majorities. As for an important vot ing group in presidential elections, Van Hollen said: “Any effort to earn the sup port of Hispanic voters has been torpedoed by these antics.” Some Republicans are nearly as pessimistic. “Bad tactics yield bad outcomes,” GOP Rep. Char lie Dent of Pennsylvania told reporters. Republican lead ers, he said, have engaged “in tactical malpractice, and at some point we’re going to vote on the negotiated Homeland Security appro priations bill,” a bipartisan plan that most Republicans oppose but cannot kill. Weeks ago, Republicans embarked on a strategy that targeted Obama’s executive order protecting millions of immigrants from deporta tion. They voted to cut off the department’s money flow after Feb. 27 unless the order was rescinded. But they never figured how to overcome Demo cratic delaying tactics in the Senate that, as many predicted, blocked the GOP plan. Stymied, Senate Republican leaders agreed to fund the department for the rest of the budget year, through September, and to deal separately with immigration. House Republicans rejected that approach. Shortly before Friday’s mid night deadline, the House extended funding for a week without resolving the larger dispute. “We all know how this is going to turn out,” said an exasperated Repub lican, Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho. “Politically, it’s devastating.” Democrats turned up the heat, saying short-term extensions will damage morale at the agency. Dems: GOP Homeland strategy a blunder OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Scott Walker may have won three elec tions in the past four years, but he’s still finding his way in presidential politics. The Wisconsin governor made a splash last month in first-to-vote Iowa, wowing Republicans and vault ing to the top of several still-way-tooearly polls. Then came “punts” on ques tions about evolution, President Barack Obama’s love of country and the president’s religion. This week Walker compared his political fight against union protesters to Ameri ca’s actual fight against Islamic State militants in the Middle East. “Take your worst day in any state capital around the country, and every day is like that on a presidential cam paign,” said Republican strategist Kevin Madden, a senior adviser on Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. “The media scrutiny is brutal, the parsing of every quote never ends and all of your opponents — whether they’re from the other party or even inside your own — has staff solely dedicated to ruining every one of your events or interviews,” Madden said. While Walker has yet to for mally announce a White House bid, other Republicans likely to run already view him as a threat in the unofficial race to emerge as the strongest alternative to former Flor ida Gov. Jeb Bush, the early favorite of the party’s estab lishment. Walker’s newly formed political action com mittee opened a national headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin, a few days ago, and several key aides are slated to move to town next week. Walker characterized this week’s episodes as media driven. “I’m not going to take that bait,” the 47-year-old Walker said Saturday about his recent media encounters, while speaking to the Club for Growth’s annual winter meeting in Florida. “I’m going to talk about things that everyday Ameri cans want to talk about.” Walker was extending his week end of presidential politicking to the influential anti-tax group meeting, where some of his 2016 competitors will also be. Walker’s candidacy will be predi cated in large part on his actions as Wisconsin’s governor: stripping the collective bargaining rights of state workers during his first term, winning a recall election and then re-election despite the determined efforts of organized labor and Demo crats to boot him from office. Wisconsin’s Walker adjusts to rigor of presidential politics SCOTT WALKER

20 15 76 915 42 Signs might be added to Bay Town Trolley buses By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn PANAMA CITY — Bay Town Trolley buses soon could be plastered with advertising to help fund the service. Companies will be asked to put forth proposals to advertise on the buses. City and county leaders on the Bay County Transportation Planning Organization agreed Wednesday that before the TPO puts out a request for proposals to advertising companies, a subcommittee of TPO members must hash out what type of advertising will be allowed and where it should be allowed on the buses. The TPO hopes advertising will generate much-needed revenue for a system that needs new routes and bus repairs. At its December meeting, the board requested that ideas be brought back this month for an interior and exterior advertising program. A draft proposal the TPO reviewed Wednesday called for the advertising contract to be for five years with five, one-year renewal options. Bay Town Trolley general manager Nancy Lohr recommended that type of agreement because advertising firms have up-front Looking to advertise By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman PANAMA CITY — Frank Bacen is remembered as a man who helped shape the local community. Bacen, who served as the head of the Bay County Chamber of Commerce for 25 years, passed away Feb. 20 at the age of 83. “All too often we forget those who have made such a valuable impact on our community and really paved the way for growth and development,” said chamber president Carol Roberts, who was hired by Bacen when she was 20 years old. “He created a lot of jobs and had a tremendous impact on the growth and development of our community.” A native of New Jersey, Bacen moved to the area after he served as the director of the Hollywood, Fla. Chamber of Commerce for 15 years. Before that, he served in the Army and was newspaper editor in Fort Riley, Kan. As an avid learner, Bacen was devoted to educating himself, the local business community and his family through frequent professional and educational conferences across the country, as well as through thoughtful conversation. Bacen retired in the mid-1990s, but his legacy with the chamber, which also served as an economic development agency at the time, will continue. A passionate writer, Bacen was the founder of Bay Biz magazine, a quarterly publication still printed today. His economic FRANK BACEN We would like to thank the sea screamer for going buy our place as the dolphins were jumping out of the water. My wife loved it. Onslaught of spring breakers. Ask business owners if they hate the onslaught of revenue spring breakers bring in? Onslaught away I’d say. Nice job, Bay County workers for buying Mr. Scott a truck. If only the human race in general was like that; being kind and helping others out. You don’t like spring breakers? Move to Nebraska. Not moving. I was here before MTV and all the problems since, and I want my town back. Cops will fail to enforce the new Spring Break laws, just like they failed to enforce the old laws. Azalea Trail. Doubt we’ll see any azaleas if these cold temps continue. May have to use daffodils or snowdrops to blaze the trail.

Great show, Heart, but someone has to start monitoring the drunks in the crowd at the Civic Center. Spring breakers are coming. Those lots with the mini motorcycles are filling up.

Newman was at Ripley’s Believe It or Not in Panama City Beach on Saturday for the eighth annual World Sword Swallowing Day. The event, according to Sword Swallowers Association International, is to raise awareness of the talent. “A performance is all about playing,” Newman said before his 2 p.m. show. The New Jersey native and resident of Philadelphia indeed played with the audience. Along with shoving a blade down his throat, Newman stuck a drill and nail in his nose (and licked both afterwards). He invited a woman to participate in what he called a test, which just involved repeating Newman’s actions of yelling and waving around a wooden plank. The 20 or so people gathered outside Ripley’s variously cheered, laughed and groaned during his performance. Newman said he’s been swallowing swords for 10 years. He’s been HARD TO SWALLOW Harley Newman says sword swallowing is all about nerve endings The trio shows off for the crowd as they finish their routine. HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Katye Kilbourne, Ridiculous and Harley Newman, from left, slide swords down their throats Saturday in front of Ripley’s Believe it or Not for World Sword Swallower’s Day. “ To me, having a sense of theater and storytelling is an essential vehicle to further a character.” Harley Newman A performance involves being even-minded and paying attention to what you’re doing.

He did help build the organization and build this community.” Bacen also will be remembered as a true friend and family man. He leaves behind a wife, three children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and many other relatives. “He was probably the kindest and most gentle person you could ever encounter,” Roberts said. “He was just an amazing family man he was a people person. He loved his job and loved his community.” TROLLEY from Page B1 costs they must shell out. But several TPO members said the five-year term seems too long and suggested three years instead. Some TPO members said they were opposed to alcohol or tobacco ads on the buses, but there were differing opinions about whether political advertising should be allowed. Board member John Reichard, a Panama City Beach city councilman, said he supports allowing political advertising. “I have never in five years of being in elected office understood the hesitation to accept advertising for a political client or candidate,” he said. “Chambers of commerce won’t do it. It’s just remarkable to me how some of my favorite people are poohpoohed and cannot accept political advertising, which is the core of the political system and the democratic system in our country.” But TPO member Mike Nichols said he was opposed to political ads on the buses. “We can’t advertise at City Hall, which is a government building,” he said. “I think these buses are also government properties, and we as a government body (would be) endorsing that candidate.” He also said some heated state or national campaigns could result in negative ads ending up on the buses. TPO member Bill Dozier questioned whether advertising wraps could block the view out of windows. Lohr said the wrap material used allows bus riders to see out the windows but the public can’t see in. She said law officers don’t like the wrap because there could be times when they want to see into a bus. “For example, say there was a terrorist on the bus and he’s standing there pointing a rifle at the bus driver. From the outside, you can’t see that,” she said. Nichols said he was concerned that ads on the back of the buses could distract a driver who might end up rear-ending the vehicle. But Reichard said the ads on the back buses can bring in the most revenue. “I think that’s going to be premium space,” he said. TPO Chairman Rodney Friend agreed. “I just spent a lot of time in Orlando, and Disney does a lot of things right, and (advertising is) all over the back (of buses),” Friend said. Nichols said if additional lights or stop signs in the windows are added to the back of the bus, he could support ads on the back. “Cause I agree, you’re sitting there, you’re waiting for the (bus) to go, and you are staring at (the ad) the whole time.”

Donna Lee Unger Smith June 14, 1957 – Feb. 24, 2015 DONNA LEE U NGER SMITH Lafayette Jett, 86, known to many as “JP,” of the Cove in Panama City, Fla., passed on to be with the lord, his son Michael, passed siblings Frank, Carlton, Betty Jean, Inez and many lost friends. He is survived by his loving wife, Betty Jett, who remained by his side for more than 64 years of marriage until his final moments on Feb. 25, 2015. He is also survived by two sons, David and Gregory Jett, and grandchildren Sevren, Leila, Austin and Alyssa Jett, all of whom are native Floridians. Lafayette Jett was born in Decatur, Ala., May 28, 1928, to Myrtle and Henry Jett. During his youth, the family relocated to Lake Helen, Fla., where he spent most of his young years. At the age of 15, Lafayette joined the Merchant Marines until his true age was discovered and he was forced to resign. Not long after his dismissal, his father signed permission for him to join the Army Air Corps where he first served with the Washington State Gliders and later was reassigned to the United States Air Force after its division. It was part of the larger United States Army and the immediate predecessor of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF), established on June 20, 1941. Lafayette served the United States Military with honor and distinction for more than 26 years, serving during World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam where he served two tours of duty. While stationed in Okinawa, Japan he achieved the level of third degree black belt in the art of “goju-ryu” Goju Karate and later opened his own dojo while stationed in Amarillo, Texas. While stationed both in Europe and the U.S., along with his wife Betty, he began teaching square dance, having a musical background he began calling the dances which led him to record many records at Rocking A Records in Amarillo, Texas. It was then when his record producer called him up as they were printing the label on the first record and told him that “Lafayette Jett” would not fit on the 45lp label and Lafayette replied “Well OK then, how about Just Plain Jett” and this is how he became JP. He retired at Eglin AFB in 1976 as a Master Sergeant with the United States Air Force. Lafayette first met his wife, Betty Ellen Merry, (originally from Duxbury, Mass.) in Sanford, Fla., in 1947 while she was visiting family during the summer and Lafayette was home on military leave from Bermuda where he was serving with the U.S. Army PT boat P-127. Betty was introduced to Lafayette by his cousin, whom she was dating at the time, but that didn’t stop Lafayette and he couldn’t resist asking her for a movie date at the drivein where she claims “We just cuddled.” Not much later, Betty enrolled in the art program at Stetson University in Deland, Fla., where Lafayette also relocated and attended school while on leave from the military. They were married July 2, 1950, in Duxbury, Mass. Lafayette’s military career led them all over the world where they made many lifelong friends that still visit and call to this day. Lafayette moved his family to the Cove while stationed at Tyndall AFB shortly before his deployment to Vietnam. After his retirement Lafayette served his community by volunteering for many years at PCMI “The Panama City Marine Institute” helping to give troubled teens a second chance on life. He was also instrumental in one of Bay County’s first organized reef projects in cooperation with a reef building team from Japan while at PCMI. Lafayette loved Panama City and its people and it was never a surprise to see him chatting it up with local fishermen or spending time, talking to and feeding the homeless in McKenzie Park even after he suffered a major stoke which left him paralyzed on his left side. His wife Betty still resides in the same home and is a full-time local artist. A celebration of life ceremony will be held on Sunday, March 15 from 1-4 p.m. at the Panama City Visual Arts Center at 19 E. 4th St., Panama City, FL 32401. In lieu of flowers or cards, Mrs. Jett is asking everyone to please make a modest contribution to the Visual Arts Center of Panama City. Make any checks payable to the VAC or Visual Arts Center.

LOCA L & STATE Page B4 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 The Associated Press MIAMI GARDENS Florida police chief fired for arrest in prostitution sting A South Florida police chief was released from jail Saturday after he was arrested in a prostitution sting. Stephen Johnson of the Miami Gardens Police posted bail and didn’t shy from reporters waiting for him outside the jail, blaming his arrest on the pressures of his job. “The stress overwhelmed me,” he said, “and I made a very bad decision.” Johnson, 53, had responded to an ad for escorts Friday on the website and arranged for a 30-minute liaison with two women at a Dania Beach hotel, according to an arrest report from the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Once he handed over $100, the report said, detectives posing as prostitutes arrested him. The arrest led to his immediate firing from a job he had held less than a year in Miami Gardens, a city of about 110,000 people roughly halfway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. The department released a statement saying, “We will not allow Mr. Johnson’s bad judgment to reflect negatively on the hardworking officers of the City of Miami Gardens and the residents they serve on a daily basis.” DAYTONA BEACH Convicted killer’s sentence extended for cold case killing A man already in prison for one murder is receiving a potentially small increase to his sentence for a Daytona Beach-area cold case killing. As part of a deal with Volusia County prosecutors, 43-year-old Robert Alford pleaded no contest Friday to second-degree murder. Authorities said 26-year-old Kimberly Palmer was found fatally beaten in her apartment in October 1989. Her case was reopened in 2013 following a tip, and authorities were able to link a semen sample found on the woman to Alford. Alford’s new 22-year sentence will run concurrently with the 65-year sentence he’s already serving for a killing a man in Fort Pierce three months after Palmer’s murder. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reports that the new sentence will be subject to gain time rules that were in place at the time of the crime, meaning he might be free by 2026. TAMPA 1 dead after fight at Tampa strip club spills outside A man is dead after an altercation with a bouncer outside a Tampa strip club. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said 22-year-old Angel Reyes was involved in a fight inside Thee Crazy Horse early Saturday that soon spilled outside. It was there that a bouncer apparently shot Reyes. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The bouncer has not yet been identified. KISSIMMEE Mom charged with neglect after Florida girls found out selling toys A Central Florida mother has been arrested after authorities said they found her two daughters going door to door trying to sell their toys. The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office said two girls, ages 7 and 9, were walking about half a mile from their home Thursday. The girls told deputies they were selling their toys “to help mommy stay in the house.” The deputies found the mother, April Emery, at home sleeping. When authorities awoke her, she allegedly said she was angry because the girls had forgotten to wake her up so she could take them to school. She was charged with child neglect without great bodily harm. The girls are staying with a family member while child welfare officials investigate.

He performed with a red bandana tied around his head. His shirt and pants were black and his blue eyes were wide and intense. He cracked jokes and portrayed himself as haphazard. For sword swallowing, you have to learn how to deal with nerve endings in the throat, Newman said, perhaps sarcastically. A performance involves being even-minded and paying attention to what you’re doing. If not, you could get hurt. “The art form is old,” he said. Newman said sword swallowing is as ancient as tribal theater, and that every continent had an equivalent stunt. He compared sword swallowing to the goal of ancient shamans performing superhuman feats to prove they could talk to the gods. A shaman had to prove he wasn’t bound by the rules of this world. Performances were both heroic and bizarre, Newman said. Although he said he has traveled all over the United States (and has been to 187 countries), he hasn’t toured much the past few years. During Saturday’s performance he seemed at ease, as if he had popped tennis balls out his mouth the entire week. As for his wrists chained around his head? Newman wrung them free. SWALLOW from Page B1 By JENNIFER RICH 628-9092 | @HCTA_JeniRich BONIFAY — A Chipley man was behind bars Saturday after he allegedly broke into a home on Neal Lane and shot one of the occupants, police say. A witness said Taj-Addaryll “Taj” Quentez Wright, 29, woke up several people in the home as he forced his way inside at 6 a.m., according to a news release from the Bonifay Police Department. Wright, who had a firearm, fired several shots at the victim before another occupant wrestled the gun away, police reported. The victim, who was not immediately identified, was taken to Doctors Memorial Hospital by Holmes County EMS and then transferred by helicopter to Bay Medical Center. The victim was listed in serious condition later Saturday. Wright left the home, but police seized the gun as evidence and obtained an arrest warrant for him. Chipley police arrested him later, according to Bonifay police. Wright was charged with attempted murder and armed burglary to an occupied dwelling. He was being held on $70,000 bond in Washington County Jail before he was to be transferred back to Holmes County, police reported. Anyone with information that might help the investigation is asked to call the Bonifay Police Department at 547-3661 or Crimestoppers of Holmes County at 1-866-8477.

Rick Scott and President Barack Obama. The state has known for about a year about the impending cut in funding to cover uninsured, low-income hospital patients, but Scott has included the money in his proposed 2015-16 budget, which takes effect July 1. The hospitals are using the issue to bolster arguments to expand Medicaid during the 60-day Legislative session that begins Tuesday. The fight is largely over the state’s refusal to expand its Medicaid program to cover about 1 million uninsured Floridians under the Affordable Care Act. Republican House Speaker Steve Crisafulli and other leaders have refused to consider the expansion, which the federal government would fully fund through 2016 and pay roughly 90 percent after that. They said they don’t want to expand an already broken system and also worry the federal government won’t follow through on its payment promise, leaving the state to foot the bill. As a possible compromise, a coalition of business leaders, health advocates, hospitals and some Republicans are supporting a plan that would accept Medicaid money and give it to consumers so they could purchase private insurance. Called “A Healthy Florida Works,” the plan would also require consumers to pay monthly premiums to encourage accountability. Hospitals said they need both the federal funds and Medicaid expansion because Medicaid covers less than half the cost of providing the care. “It is not a one or the other situation,” said Tony Carvalho, president of the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida, a coalition of 14 hospitals that treat the needy. Scott, a Republican who entered politics opposing the health care law, is also unlikely to lend support, saying only that he won’t stand in the way if the Legislature passes Medicaid expansion. Senate leaders said they are open to a dialogue on Medicaid and Sen. Aaron Bean’s committee will look at the “A Healthy Florida Works” plan during the first week of the session. “The Senate has certainly shown a willingness to look for free-market options on this,” said Senate President Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, but noted there’s been no discussion with the House. “It might just be a workshop discussion or it could turn into a committee bill.” Medicaid expansion supporters thought the loss of the low-income funds could provide the catalyst needed to convince Republican lawmakers to expand Medicaid rather than dipping into the stage budget. State health officials said they met with federal officials last week and are continuing conversations, but offered no other details, and it’s unclear whether the state has a contingency plan. But recently, there’s been growing speculation that the funds might continue in another form, making it tricky for lawmakers to budget. Scott spokeswoman Jackie Schutz said the administration would be “extremely disappointed” if no deal is reached with the Obama administration on funding. “Florida taxpayers fund our federal government and deserve to see a return on their investment — and we want to see it continue to provide health care for those who need it,” she said. The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said it would not extend the fund “in its current form beyond June,” but said in a statement it will work with the state on alternatives. Medicaid fight may cost Florida $1 billion federal grant “ Florida taxpayers fund our federal government and deserve to see a return on their investment — and we want to see it continue to provide health care for those who need it.” Jackie Schutz Gov.

WASHINGTON — Here’s how area members of Congress — Reps. Jeff Miller, R-Chumuckla, and Gwen Graham, D-Tallahassee, and Sens. Marco Rubio, R., and Bill Nelson, D. — voted on major issues in the week ending Feb. 27. HOUSE ONE-WEEK BUDGET FOR HOMELAND SECURIT Y : Voting 357 for and 60 against, the House on Feb. 27 passed a bipartisan bill (HR 33) to extend funding for the Department of Homeland Security by one week through March 6. The Senate already had passed the bill on a non-record vote. This vote was completed two hours and one minute before the department was set to partially shut down at midnight for lack of funding. It followed House defeat hours earlier of a Republican bill to fund DHS for three more weeks in order to give the party more time to continue challenging presidential actions on immigration. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Voting yes: Miller, Graham THREE-WEEK BUDGET FOR HOMELAND SECURITY: Voting 203 for and 224 against, the House on Feb. 27 defeated a Republican bill (HJ Res 35) that would extend stopgap funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) by three weeks through March 19. The bill clashed with a “clean” Senatepassed measure (below) that would fund the department through Sept. 30 without challenging President Obama’s immigration orders. In the absence of House-Senate agreement on new funding, the department was scheduled to partially shut down at midnight, or about seven hours after this vote was completed. DHS has an annual budget of nearly $40 billion and is comprised of 16 agencies and 231,000 employees. Its seven largest units in terms of staffing are, in order, Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Security Administration, the Coast Guard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Citizenship and Immigration Services and the Secret Service. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Voting yes: Miller, Graham HIGHER-EDUCATION SAVINGS PLANS: Voting 401 for and 20 against, the House on Feb. 25 passed a bill (HR 529) to expand the types of tax-free expenditures that can be made from earnings in so-called “Section 529” higher-education savings plans. The bill is projected to increase annual deficits by $51 million through fiscal 2025. Today, earnings in these plans can be used to pay for tuition, room and board. This bill adds computer and software purchases as qualified expenses. In addition, in cases where students withdraw from college, the bill allows tuition refunds to be added back to their education accounts. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate. Voting yes: Miller, Graham DISCLOSURE OF BROKERAGE FEES: By a vote of 176 for and 243 against, the House on Feb. 25 defeated a Democratic motion to HR 529 (above) that sought to require financial firms managing “Section 529” savings plans to disclose to customers the types and amounts of their brokerage fees and illustrate the cumulative cost of these fees over 10 and 20 years. A yes vote was to adopt the motion, which, had it prevailed, would have immediately amended the bill. Voting yes: Graham Voting no: Miller SENATE REGULAR BUDGET FOR HOMELAND SECURITY: Voting 68 for and 31 against, the Senate on Feb. 27 passed a bipartisan appropriations bill (HR 240) that would fund the Department of Homeland Security at an annual rate of $39.7 billion in the remaining seven months fiscal 2015. The bill would fully fund the 231,000-employee, 16-agency department and keep it from partially shutting down at the end of the day. This “clean” bill was free of provisions advocated by Republicans in both chambers to block President Obama’s executive orders on immigration (next issue). A yes vote was to pass a bill to fund homelandsecurity operations through Sept. 30. Voting yes: Nelson Voting no: Rubio DEFUNDING OF IMMIGRATION ORDERS: Voting 57 for and 42 against, the Senate on Feb. 27 failed to reach 60 votes needed to end Democratic blockage of a GOP-drafted bill (S 534) that would defund two executive orders by President Obama on immigration. Now temporarily in effect, those orders provide work authority and waivers from potential deportation to hundreds of thousands of young people known as “dreamers” as well as to four million-plus parents of U.S. citizens or legal residents born before Nov. 20, 2014. A yes vote was to advance the measure opposing presidential immigration orders. Voting yes: Rubio Voting no: Nelson Key votes ahead In the week of March 2, the Senate will conduct an override vote on President Obama’s veto of a Keystone XL Pipeline bill, and it could take up the nomination of Loretta Lynch as attorney general. The House schedule was to be announced. 1134781 Struggling with Pr escription Painkillers? Opiate Dependence? Ma rk F. Mo ra n, M.D . Ge or ge G. Tr ac y, M.D .

Ev en t Sp on so r: Wa lMa rt Sup erin te nd en t Sp on so r: He al th So ut h Bo wl -T oAc hi ev e TALLAHASSEE (AP) — As soon as he entered the screenedpool area at the Golden Eagle manse the morning of Feb. 22, 2014, Gerald Gardner knew something was wrong. First, the maintenance man saw Samira Frasch’s little white dog, Bella, running around the enclosure where it didn’t belong. The bichon frise normally stayed in the bathroom connected to the house, but the door was ajar. Then he saw the gem-studded black sandals in the water, one caught under a hose on the first step, another in the shallow end. And there she was — Dr. Adam Frasch’s exotic third wife, Samira, lying on her back submerged at the bottom of the deep end of the pool, motionless and naked, save for an open leopard-print robe still tied around her waist. Gardner ran to the front of the house at 8374 Inverness Drive and called 911 on his cell phone. “She’s dead,” the 41-year-old told dispatchers. “She’s completely gone.” Leon County deputy Richard Womble arrived shortly after the 11:02 a.m. call. As he led the deputy to the pool, Gardner said: “He killed her, he did it.” A year later, Frasch — once a jetsetting Thomasville podiatrist with a passion for gambling, fast cars and women — sits in a cell at the Leon County Jail. He awaits trial on a charge of killing his 38-year-old wife of five years, a Madagascar native with a thick French accent, ostentatious taste and a murky past. While Frasch, 47, was long considered the prime suspect — the couple’s volatile relationship was well-known to friends and welldocumented in court filings — it took prosecutors nearly nine months to bring the case before a grand jury, which in November indicted him for first-degree murder. Investigative reports, recently shared with Frasch’s defense team by the State Attorney’s Office and obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat under Florida’s open records law, provide insight into the tawdry case of infidelity and excess. The documents, which include dozens of witness interviews, the autopsy report and investigators’ findings, reveal previously undisclosed details about events surrounding the death of Samira, who was in the process of divorcing her husband. Ultimately, the reports indicate prosecutors may argue the discovery of a sex video of Frasch and one of his girlfriends led to a final fight between husband and wife. Frasch’s lead defense attorney, Clyde Taylor, says the prosecution’s case is based on circumstantial evidence, and the pretrial investigation reports are notable for the information they lack. The autopsy report says Samira died as the result of drowning and blunt head trauma — she had a large bruise on the right side of her forehead and a skull fracture — but it doesn’t pinpoint her exact time of death. Notes from one of the firefighters who pulled her from the 58-degree water said her fingertips didn’t look to have been submerged for long. Based on her appearance, first responders decided to begin CPR, which continued for 45 minutes to no avail. Frasch, who has steadfastly maintained his innocence, does not deny spending the previous night with Samira. The investigation shows he left the house more than two hours before her body was found. He was seen departing in the same clothes he wore the previous day. A neighbor on a walk reported seeing a woman who resembled Samira outside the house after Frasch was gone. “Lawyers say all the time that their client is not guilty,” said Taylor, who expects to go to trial this year, although a date has not been set. “(But) I’ve been practicing criminal defense law for over 35 years, and truly am looking forward to Dr. Frasch’s day in court.” Mysterious death reveals volatile relationship Samira died as the result of drowning and blunt head trauma — she had a large bruise on the right side of her forehead and a skull fracture — but it doesn’t pinpoint her exact time of death.

Ted Cruz of Texas told an influential anti-tax group Friday that he opposes Common Core education standards, a day after potential GOP presidential rival Jeb Bush endorsed the program. Cruz described Common Core as “national standards being dictated from Washington” during an appearance at the Club for Growth’s annual winter meeting. “There is no remedy when they are dictating what’s being taught to your kids,” said Cruz, a first-term senator weighing a 2016 presidential campaign. His comments stood in stark contrast to those from Bush, who told the same group that the education goals would help more students be prepared for college or better jobs. Common Core standards are a set of voluntary goals in math, reading and language arts created by a bipartisan group of governors and adopted by more than 40 states. They became a polarizing issue within Republican circles after the Obama administration endorsed them. Earlier Friday, Bush rejected the idea that Common Core standards were tantamount to a federal takeover of education. Speaking at a meeting of conservative activists in suburban Washington, the former Florida governor argued that Congress should pass legislation that states that “the federal government has no role in the creation of standards directly or indirectly.” Cruz and Bush were among six potential GOP presidential candidates speaking to the Club for Growth’s winter meeting, which concluded Saturday. The others were Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. SEN. TED CRUZ


By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 |@PCNHDustinKent m With the 11th Annual All-Star Basketball Classic set for Saturday, April 4, at Gulf Coast State College, the coaches and first four player picks for both the boys and girls East teams now are in place. Leading the girls East All-Stars will be Mosley head coach Jon Mason and Dolphins assistant coach Ray Frazier. Mason led the Dolphins to a 23-6 record this season and a 41-36 playoff victory over Rickards in the Region 1-5A quarterfinals. The All-Star Classic annually pro vides a showcase for the top senior high school basketball players from The News Herald’s readership area, or East teams, against the West which boasts the best seniors from The Daily News readership area that is based in Okaloosa County. Rutherford head coach Rhondie Ross and Malone head coach Ste ven Welch previously were named to guide the boys East team. A trio of Rutherford players, Josh Wade, Gabe Steele and Destin Dunton were joined by Malone standout Antwain Johnson as the first four boys selections. The girls game will be played starting at 11 a.m. followed by the boys game at 1 p.m. Both games will be played under college rules. A pair of Mosley seniors are among the first four selections for the girls team, with 5-foot-11 post players Hennessey Smith and McK enzie Perot joining the squad. Smith averaged nearly dou ble-double on the season with 11.1 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. A four-year varsity veteran, she added 2.6 blocks and 1.8 steals per game. Smith shot 46 per cent from the field and 38 percent from the 3-point line, and posted eight double-doubles during the season. Perot averaged 8.8 points and 7.1 rebounds during her senior year while overcoming a mid season injury. She added 1.3 steals per game, shot 43 percent from the field and posted four double-doubles. Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD S UND AY March 1, 2015 Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports Sometimes the CliffsNotes version makes the most sense. Not often, but it comes to mind today in reference to New York Yankees infielder Alex Rodriguez. Yankees want former slugger to go away. A-Rod back at spring training trying to collect on $61 million team still owes him. The circus is back in town. Alex Rodriguez, and the New York Yankees to some extent, are front and center about what is wrong with baseball. This is a sport still trying to figure out the proper use of instant replay and looking into speeding up the game to better promote its image. It’s coming off a sterling postseason where the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals produced memorable playoff runs, then a watchable World Series that went seven games. There is a lot that’s good about the game, including rising superstars such as Steve Trout and Clayton Kershaw, not to mention Andrew McCutchen and many others. The Chicago Cubs again appear to be a viable commodity, and 2015 could well become a platform for the Seattle Mariners, who have been building for this moment in the relative seclusion of the Upper Northwest. A-Rod and the New York Yankees are a link to the steroid-riddled past, and the infusion of long-term contracts that make a mockery of the money paid to many firstand second-year players. And once more, an emphatic restatement of the Me Generation. The Yankees would like Rodriguez to limp off into the sunset so they could recoup a large portion of his contract through insurance. Or perhaps they’re willing to let the great fabricator poison their clubhouse just so they can get some production for their money. How much production is doubtful. Rodriguez will be 40 in July. He is coming off surgery to both of his hips. He hasn’t faced major league pitching in 17 months. And if he does hit, don’t you know there will be a brand-new controversy over his ability to do so at his advancing age. Alex Rodriguez brings turmoil and inconsistency to any discussion. So how did he describe his first day back on the field? “It was like going to Disney World,” Rodriguez told a gaggle of reporters. Manager Joe Girardi might have labeled it otherwise, the Yankees’ skipper already growing tired of questions about the aging one-time superstar.

Gordon takes last spin in ATL H A MPTON, Ga. (AP) — Jeff Gordon admired his latest retirement gift — a miniature race car for his two young chil dren — and thanked the folks at Atlanta Motor Speedway for not going with the obvious choice. “I really appreciate it not being a rocking chair,” Gordon quipped. There is time for that. Gordon will relish one final spin today around the track that’s meant so much to his brilliant career. Atlanta was the place where Gordon, a few months shy of his 21st birth day, picked up his first NASCAR vic tory in what was then known as the Busch Grand National Series, beating some of the biggest names in the sport in 1992. “I wasn’t racing against any slouches that day,” Gor don recalled. “Mark Martin. Bill Elliott. Dale Earnhardt Sr. Those were the three guys I had to battle with to win that race.” Rick Hendrick was watch ing that day. Impressed with Gordon’s performance, he put the youngster in one of his Cup cars for the final race that sea son, once again at Atlanta. Everyone knows the rest of the story. Gordon took over a fulltime ride at Hendrick the fol lowing season, captured the first of four Cup titles in 1995, and is now at 92 career vic tories, third-most in the his tory of NASCAR’s top series — trailing only Richard Petty and David Pearson. “This place has done so much for me,” said Gordon, who is retiring at the end of the year. That first Cup race is espe cially poignant, even though Gordon finished far back in 31st place. In what would go down as a seminal changing of the guard, his debut came on the same day that Petty raced for the final time. “I’ll always remember that drivers’ meeting,” Gor don said. “The faces in there, beyond the drivers, was pretty impressive. I still have that money clip that Richard handed out that day to all the drivers with their starting position. I wasn’t that proud at the moment, because I started 21st. But I’ll remember that forever.” NAS C AR Sports Beat Pat McCann Executive Sports Editor SEE NASCAR | C2 SEE M c CANN | C2 SEE CL ASSIC | C2 By P A T McC ANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann P A N A M A CIT Y BE A CH — Coaches and teams might not have wanted the reminder that good pitching stops good hitting, but some of them got one regardless in the Florida-USA Softball Challenge at Frank Brown Park. Host Arnold was among them. Twenty-eight teams convened at Frank Brown Park for two days of softball that concluded Saturday afternoon. The initiative for the event was to supply games against competition not often found on the schools’ respective schedules, and early enough in the season for coaches to better evaluate their ballclub’s strengths and weaknesses. That often included facing a level of pitching uncommon to a school’s surrounding area. Arnold was blanked 4-0 by Tallahassee Leon early Saturday afternoon. Combined with the Marlins’ results from Friday night, an 11-1 run-rule defeat to Lincoln and 5-3 loss to Florida High, they scored only four runs in their opening three tournament games. That came after averaging 9 runs per game while compiling a 5-0 record prior to the weekend. “We faced a lot better pitching than we did early in the year,” Arnold coach Rick Green said. “And we changed up our lineup a bit, and that bit us in the back end” in the loss to the Lions. Arnold’s problem against Leon, 6-5, wasn’t creating scoring opportunities. The Marlins had two baserunners aboard in five of the seven innings against Lions’ right-hander Jensen Strickland. She limited them to four hits, and in only one of those innings did Arnold get a runner as far as third base.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 This is a golden opportunity where Rodriguez actually could make some new fans, although the possibility appears remote at best. He could say, with some credibility, that he respects the game too much just to hang around for a paycheck and make a mockery of the competitive process. And so could the Yankees decide to swallow a $61 million mistake in judgment when offering Rodriguez his latest contract extension. They could state with clarity that the product they put on the field is more sacrosanct than any front office blunder. Of course, neither of those will happen. And should Rodriguez still be able to hit a little, he’ll soon threaten the career home run total of Willie Mays. Rodriguez has 654. Mays hit 660. Won’t that be a pleasurable day if A-Rod posts 661.

He’d prefer to forget his final qualify ing run at Atlanta. Gordon was among 13 cars — four of them former champions — who never got on the track because their cars didn’t pass inspection. He called the situation “absolutely embar rassing,” even though he still made the race based on owner points from 2014. Joey Logano didn’t have any prob lems. He turned a blistering lap of more than 194 mph to take the pole, looking very much like a driver capable of fol lowing up on his season-opening victory in the Daytona 500. “Hopefully we can finish where we start,” said Logano, who settled for sec ond behind Kevin Harvick in Saturday’s Xfinity Series race, a possible preview of the duel to come in the big race of the weekend. “It’s been an amazing few weeks.” While Daytona is the biggest race of the year, Atlanta is viewed as the real opener, the first event under a new rules package that reduced horsepower and cut down on drag. Most intriguingly, drivers now have the option of control ling the track bar from inside the car, allowing them to adjust the rear balance during the race, altering the way their machine handles. The speeds were actually faster in qualifying than they were under the old rules package, but that was largely due to brisk temperatures expected throughout the weekend in Atlanta. The race was previously held on the swelter ing Labor Day weekend, before shifting to an early spot on the schedule this year. This track, one of the most historic on the Sprint Cup circuit, once hosted two races a year — including that sea son finale. But dwindling attendance cost Atlanta one of its races, and now it’s given up a prime spot on the sched ule. Over the winter, track officials took down the towering Elliott Grandstand in Turn 3, hoping to at least improve appearances with fewer empty seats. The drivers hope Atlanta keeps at least one race on the schedule. It’s one of the most challenging tracks in the series, notoriously tough on tires and providing all sorts of potential racing grooves, from the edge of the apron all the way up to the outside wall. “This is a racetrack that needs stay on our schedule,” said reigning Cup champion Harvick, who was the run ner-up at Daytona and will likely be one of Logano’s prime challengers again today. “It’s great place to race. It’s got to be a fun place to watch a race.” NASCAR from Page C1 M c CANN from Page C1 Representing Chipley is Amanda Paschal, who proved to be one of the top players in the state with a dominant senior season.

JOE — Georgia Lee went the distance in the 7-5 opening-game win giving up four hits and striking out four. Brooklyn Quinn was 3 for 3 with a home run and four RBIs. It was Quinn’s second homer of the season. The Tiger Sharks won Game 2 by 15-0 in four innings. Savannah Miles was the winning pitcher allow ing four hits and striking out four. Shannon Pridgen was 2 for 2 with two RBIs and Teiyahna Hutchinson was 2 for 2. Port St. Joe, 5-1, plays at Marianna on Monday evening. Chiles 4, Rutherford 1 Rutherford 16, Fort Walton Beach 1 PANAMA CITY BEACH — Rutherford finished the Florida-USA Softball Chal lenge with a 3-1 overall record, splitting its final two games. Curstin Taylor allowed only five hits and struck out seven in the loss to Chiles. Taylor Stalnaker had two singles and Abbie Barron had a single and RBI for the Rams. Barron pitched a two-hit ter in the rout of Fort Walton Beach, a game shortened to three innings. Taylor Todd had a single, grand-slam homer and six RBIs, Barron had a single, double and four RBIs, Savanna Boyette two singles and a triple and Stalnaker three singles. Rutherford, 7-3, hosts Arnold on Tuesday in a District 1-5A game. Baseball Holmes County 7 , John Paul II 2 TALLAHASSEE — Aus tin Medley was the winning pitcher with 10 strikeouts in six innings and was 3 for 4 with a run batted in at the plate. Chad Leavins was 3 for 4, Chase Forehand 1 for 3 with an RBI and Dalon Reynolds 1 for 3 with two RBIs. Holmes County, 6-1, will play at Blountstown 6 p.m. Tuesday. Late results Holmes County 3, Godby 1 TALLAHASSEE — Shane Sell ers pitched a five-hitter for the Blue Devils. Tice Kilgore was 2 for 3, Tristen Cooper 1 for 2 with two runs, Hunter Far rar 1 for 3 with an RBI and Chase Forehand 1 for 3 with an RBI. The Marlins eventually stranded nine, and Leon aided its cause by turning two double plays. “We had our opportunities,” Green said. “The problem is we don’t have the speed to play small ball. The girls that we had who could — Dana Edmundson and Sara Roberson — are playing at Chipola this year.” Arnold right-hander Emily Sowell gave her team a chance to win allowing eight hits and three earned runs while going the distance. Sowell struck out four and walked three. Leon produced a run in the bottom of the first on back-toback doubles by Strickland and Mallorie Muggridge. The Lions gave Strickland a cushion on Muggridge’s two-run single in the fifth inning and added their final run on a throwing error in the sixth. Arnold’s frustration might have been summed up by the first inning. Sarah Robertson drilled a lead-off double off the fence and with one out Summer Simmons walked. Clean-up batter Miranda Smith then lined out to first baseman Alexis Corder who doubled off Simmons. Patricia Butherus walked in the third, moved up on Nickole Page’s sacrifice and reached third when Robertson singled up the middle with one out. Robertson then stole second, but both runners stayed put as Strickland, who struck out seven and walked four, got the final two outs. Page doubled with two out in the fifth and Leon pitched around Robertson to walk her and put two runs on. Catcher Michaela Keel’s diving catch of Makena Holloway’s pop in front of the plate ended that threat. Budding rallies in the sixth and seventh, when Arnold put its first two batters aboard in both innings, also were unproductive. “Emily did a great job,” Green said. “And I thought our defense was good enough to win.” Strickland, however, was too much to overcome. Page and Robertson each had two of Arnold’s four hits. Muggridge was the lone Leon player with two hits, but seven Lion players combined for their team total of eight.

A RNOLD from Page C1 LOS ANGELES (AP) — A report commissioned by the developer of a downtown Los Angeles football stadium warns that a rival project nearby could be a potential terrorist target because of its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport. The report was released Friday at a time when sev eral potential stadium projects are competing to bring an NFL team to Southern California, two decades after the Rams and Raiders pulled out. The 14-page report was commissioned by Anschutz Entertainment Group, which wants to build a sta dium in downtown Los Angeles. A development venture linked to Rams owner Stan Kroenke has proposed a stadium in Inglewood, about 10 miles from downtown. The report by former Homeland Security Secre tary Tom Ridge finds that constructing an 80,000-seat stadium in Inglewood — as close as 2.5 miles from an airport runway — “materially increases the risk of a terrorist event.” Ridge concluded that in a world when terrorism is a recognized threat that “the peril of placing a National Football League stadium in the direct flight path of (the airport)” ... outweighs whatever benefits it would bring over its lifespan.

TALLAHASSEE (AP) — While the focus is often on what a team does in March, Louisville has a habit of closing strong in February. The Cardinals have won 16 of their last 19 February games, and No. 17 Louis ville turned in one of its best offensive and defensive performances this season in an 81-59 win over Florida State on Saturday. “It was a terrific win for us,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said. “This is prob ably the best team perfor mance of the season.” Wayne Blackshear scored 18 points, Montrezl Harrell added 16 points and Anton Gill made all five of his shots from the floor to finish with 14 to help Louis ville (23-6, 11-5 ACC) close February with its third straight win.

STAT SHEET Page C4 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 Tennis: Federer retains Dubai title DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Defending champion Roger Federer won his seventh Dubai Championships title and second of the year in defeating top-ranked Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-5 on Saturday. This marked the seventh consecutive year — 11th time in 13 years — that Federer or Djokovic won this title. The only other tournaments Federer won seven times are Wimbledon, and Halle, Germany, both on grass. “Ever since I won here the first time, I fell in love with the tournament,” Federer said. “The seventh is quite unbelievable. It sounds pretty crazy to me.” Federer, who has 84 career titles, won in Brisbane, Australia, in January. “He deserved it,” Djokovic said. “I expected that from him. “I knew he was going to chip and charge, come to the net, serve and volley.” Safarova beats Azarenka to win Qatar Open DOHA, Qatar — Fed Cup winner Lucie Safarova beat Victoria Azarenka in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3 to clinch the Qatar Open. It was her sixth career title and first since Qubec City in 2013 as well as her first at the Premier-level. The Czech snapped Azarenka’s 14-match winning streak in Doha and also foiled the Belarusian’s attempt to clinch a record third Qatar Open title. “It’s an amazing feeling. I’m really excited and. I’ve been working towards this for a long time. I’m happy at the way season has progressed,” said Safarova, who along with Bethanie Mattek-Sands had won their first grand slam doubles titles at the Australian Open last month. Contesting their first final of the season, Safarova broke Azarenka in the very first game and asserted her supremacy gradually. Though Azarenka broke back in the sixth game, Safarova returned the compliment again in the ninth and held her serve in the next to take the first set. The plot was no different in the second set in which Safarova broke Azarenka twice — in the third and the ninth games, firing seven aces in the match including three-in-a-row to seal the contest. Prep basketball: Gibbons tops Rickards LAKELAND — Maverick Rowan scored 26 points to lead Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons to a 74-58 win over Tallahassee Rickards in the Florida Class 5A boys basketball championship game Saturday.

SPORT S Sunday, March 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 Do you know we have a fish around here with three tails? If you believe its name it does. The fish is a saltwater variety that goes by the name tripletail. It can be found in hundreds of feet of water and also can be found in less than a foot of water. If you want to target this fish in a serious manner you should go to Apalachicola Bay and hire a guide. That’s not to say any fisherman couldn’t go in his or her boat and catch one. As a matter of fact, come summer and warmer water you could start looking for tripletail right here in St. Andrew Bay. I was about 10 when I saw my first tripletail. I was fishing with my grandfather off Phillips Inlet in about 60 feet of water when an old wooden fish box came floating by and out popped a tripletail of about seven or eight pounds. I thought it was a grouper. If you had never seen one or had never heard of one, a grouper would be as good a guess as you could come up with. Occasionally I will see a juvenile tripletail around docks in the bay, but if I seriously wanted to catch one I would stay in our bays. Apalachicola Bay has a bigger population of tripletail than any other body of water in this area. But don’t let that stop you from looking for them simply because you don’t have the time to drive 100 miles. Just start looking here in our bay and Choctawhatchee Bay. As a matter of fact, there is a fellow who lives in Freeport that goes by the name Mr. Tripletail simply because he used to catch so many. When I was doing a television show in the 1990s he called and invited me on a trip with him to go tripletail fishing in Choctawhatchee Bay. Why I never followed up on it I can’t remember, but it was one of the big mistakes I have made in my life. The world records for tripletail come in several categories. The IGFA lists tripletail in line class for men, women, small fry men and women and junior. For years the all-tackle record for tripletail was held by fishermen out of Apalachicola Bay — both men’s and women’s records. Today the record is 42 pounds and 5 ounces, and the fish was caught in Zululand, S.A. One of Panama City’s hard-hitting fishermen had a tripletail in the livewell that at that time was in contention for a line class record. He was fishing with one of his friends who suggested he hold up the fish for a picture. As he was wrestling the fish out of the livewell he dropped it on the deck and overboard it went, record and all. If you would like to catch a tripletail go down to the bait store and buy the largest live shrimp you can find. Finding a large live shrimp probably will be harder than finding a tripletail. I have caught them on pilchards and cutbait and dead shrimp, but large shrimp are the best. You don’t need a large hook; one that would handle a big trout will do. I would use at least a 30-pound leader, not because it will bite the line in two but because where you find tripletail you most likely will find it hanging around something with barnacles growing on it. Next you will need a cork to keep the shrimp close to the top. You don’t need a giant cork, just one that stops the shrimp from diving and swimming away from the buoy or piling you are casting around. If the water is clear enough you sometimes will see tripletail swim out away from a buoy or trash floating in the water. Target floating buoys or anything you see floating such as trees or plywood. In the Gulf, if you pass something like one of these objects stop and fish around it, even if you only have a pompano jig to throw. The best object I’ve seen that holds tripletails is crab pot buoys. They usually will be in about 4 feet of water, but that is plenty deep. Approach the crab pot from the upcurrent side so you can keep your bait positioned close to the crab pot buoy. If you approach from the downcurrent side of the buoy your bait will fly by the buoy and you may have to make several casts before the fish sees the shrimp. We all know what casting a shrimp multiple times will do to its life span. When you hook a tripletail most likely it will head back to whatever it was hanging around, so it is imperative to apply pressure and work it away from those barnacles before you lose leader fish and all. Most of the time the fish you hang will weigh less than 4 pounds, so a giant rod and reel is not necessary. Just remember tripletails have to be a minimum of 15 inches and the bag limit is 2 per person.

COLLEGE SOFTBALL/BASEBALL ROUNDUP The News Herald PANAMA CITY — Katie Beth Gordon got both pitching wins and Gulf Coast staged a memo rable comeback in the second game for a sweep of a junior col lege softball doubleheader Sat urday against Chattahoochee Valley at Joe Tom King Field. The Lady Commodores, 14-13, surpassed .500 for the first time this season. Taylor Campbell drilled a walkoff grand-slam home run in a 10-2 win in Game 1, and Gulf Coast rallied from a sevenrun deficit to win Game 2 10-8. Gordon went the distance in a six-inning opener. Keala Cordeiro had two runs batted in, Alaynah Weiss a solo homer and Camp bell’s second hit of the game brought on the mercy rule. Matters weren’t quite as simple in the nightcap. Chatta hoochee Valley went ahead early against starter Alison Mitts and reliever Ashton May. By the time Gordon entered Gulf Coast trailed 7-0. “Katie Beth pitched really well all day,” GC coach Beth Wade said. “We got down early in Game 2, but they were relent less. We kept chipping away and chipping away.” The Lady Commodores ral lied with three runs in the third inning, one in the fourth, four in the fifth, and after CVCC tied it 8-8 in the top of the sixth scored twice in the bottom half. Kelbi Davis’ second two-run homer of the game provided the difference in the sixth inning. Kinsley Faulkenberry was 3 for 4 with three RBIs and Amber Dozier 2 for 3 with two RBIs. “We just kind of got on a roll and kept having quality at-bats,” Wade said. “We were just seeing it well all day.” Gulf Coast plays a double header on Tuesday at WallaceDothan starting at 1 p.m. FSU 5, Boston College 0 TALLAHASSEE — Lacey Wal drop and Bailey Schinella com bined on a one-hitter as Florida State opened Atlantic Coast Con ference play with a shutout in the first game of a doubleheader.

BASEBALL Page C6 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 PORT CHARLOTTE (AP) — Evan Longoria trusts the Tampa Bay Rays to get it right, so he has no complaints about the club’s winter makeover. Not that the star third baseman was happy to see the franchise lose manager Joe Maddon and front office executive Andrew Friedman within a 10-day span of October, then watch their successors spend much of the next three months revamping the roster through a series of trades and free agent signings that have filled the clubhouse with new faces. “It’s just really about all the con fidence that I have in their ability to put together a good team and just see the bigger picture,” the three-time AL All-Star said. “Everybody who’s here is looking forward to a new year, just a fresh start and something that’s different,” Longoria added. “Sometimes things are needed and necessary to kind of keep you on track.” The Rays’ career leader in home runs and RBIs stressed that that’s no knock on Maddon, who guided the Rays to four playoffs berths over a sixyear span before finishing with Tampa Bay’s first losing record since 2007 last season. The most successful manager in team history opted out of the final year of his contract before signing with the Chicago Cubs. The Rays hired Kevin Cash, who has no previous managerial experience, to succeed the popular Maddon. “Obviously, he did so many great things for the franchise, and so many great things for me as a player,” Long oria said. “But I guess all good things come to an end at some point. I think we’re really looking forward to getting to know Kevin as a manager and as a guy.” Friedman, who put together the rosters Maddon thrived with, left for a similar position with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Matt Silverman, who joined a then-struggling Tampa Bay organi zation at the same time as Friedman , has taken over as president of baseball operations. Longoria said he believes in Silverman’s ability to keep the fran chise moving forward. Five starters from a year ago, including three-time All-Star Ben Zobrist and 2013 AL Rookie of the Year Wil Myers, were traded this offseason. Infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, outfield prospect Steven Souza, catcher Rene Rivera, designated hitter John Jaso and pitchers Kevin Jepsen, Ernesto Frieri and Burch Smith are among the new arrivals. “It goes back to the track record of those guys from the beginning,” Longoria said, alluding to the success of the front office since principal owner Stuart Sternberg took control of the team. “Pretty much all of the moves they’ve made have been great for our organization and worked out. I had to put my faith in that.” The face of the franchise thinks the Rays, who have one of the best pitching rotations in the AL, have a chance to be better than a lot of people suspect. And he’s ready to lead, vowing to “play better” after hitting .253 and lead ing Tampa Bay with 22 homers and 91 RBIs while playing in all 162 games for the first time last season. What he hopes will be a “bounceback” campaign actually began in November, when he traveled to Japan as part of a MLB all-star team and homered three times in seven games. “ That experience, and just being able to play a little bit more baseball at the end of the year, and just have some good moments over there, kind of sweetened the bitter taste that I had at the end of the year,” Longoria said. “It kind of made me more hungry to get back to work and get ready to come back and have a great year for us.” Cash looks at the numbers Longo ria posted last season and thinks it’s laughable anyone would suggest he’s needs to bounce back. “It cracks me up when people say rebound. There’s 90 percent in base ball that would give a left arm to have those numbers,” the manager said. “Evan, he makes us go. There’s no doubt about it. There’s no doubt he’s going to be good.” EVAN LONGORIA Longoria eyes ‘bounce-back’ year Seattle’s Ackley welcomed son early on way to spring training PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Dustin Ackley and his 7-months-pregnant wife were about an hour from stop No. 2 in their cross-country trek from Michigan to Arizona for the start of spring training when her water broke outside Oklahoma City. The Seattle Mariners’ left fielder also had two dogs in tow, so the couple acted quickly to figure out the best plan. It was approaching midnight on Feb. 18. Ultimately, Ackley dropped Justine at the hos pital and he stayed with their pups. When she called about 7 a.m. the next morning, he returned to the hospital with less than 15 minutes to spare. Parson Bennett, a remark ably healthy 5 pounds and 12 ounces, joined the world almost six weeks early — with a birthplace far from what they’d expected. Now out of the infants’ intensive care unit, Ackley hopes mom and baby will join him in Arizona over the coming days. “We were going to make about three stops on the way out and Oklahoma City was where we were stopping the second night,” Ackley recalled Saturday morning before a rain-altered day of baseball work. “She wasn’t due until the end of March. Definitely it was a pretty big surprise. We were planning on getting out here and hav ing to worry about him maybe coming when the season was getting ready to start, so that was what we were more wor ried about. We weren’t really thinking, ‘Oh, he’s going to come during this road trip.’ Pretty crazy trip, for sure.” Little Parson has been off oxygen for a few days and moved from an incubator into a more normal hospital bassinet. That gives Ackley some comfort given he had to leave his wife, who now has his mother with her for sup port, and first baby to join the Mariners on time. His son had improved enough that he felt he could go. They began their annual 2,000-mile, 30-hour trip in Lap eer, Michigan, outside Flint. They stopped in St. Louis the first night. From Oklahoma City, the original itinerary included a night in Albuquer que before pushing on to the Arizona desert. “It was definitely a sur prise,” Ackley said. His wife had been due in late March. At first, they weren’t sure if she was just experiencing a late-stage pregnancy symptom. They quickly switched hotels so Ackley (and the dogs) could be closer to where she was in the hospital. He had to leave the canines in the car when he went in the next morning for the birth. For the 27-year-old Ackley, seeing his son with tubes and needing assistance because of the premature birth was the hardest part. Now, he is counting the hours until Par son can be released and come join dad’s baseball life. Base ball at least provides a daily distraction. Pirates’ star McCutchen eyeing step forward BRADENTON (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates lost 95 games in 2005, the year they drafted out fielder Andrew McCutchen in the first round. Four years later, when McCutchen made his major league debut, they lost 99 games. McCutchen has seen the franchise at its worst. As he has matured into one of the top players in the National League, the Pirates also have been on the upswing. The Pirates got an NL wild-card berth in each of the past two sea sons. This year, McCutchen wants more. “We’re not here to try to win a wild-card game,” McCutchen said. “We’re here to win the division and keep going from there to win a championship.” Such a statement would have drawn laughter not too long ago. McCutchen said perceptions about the Pirates have changed. “People look at us a lot differently because they know we’re for real,” McCutchen said. “It would’ve been easy to say 2013 was a fluke and we just got lucky. But we showed up in ‘14 and were able to do the same thing. We know we’re for real. And other teams know they just can’t come in (thinking), ‘All right, we’re going to beat the Pirates.’ We’re not that team anymore.” The Pirates have a solid bull pen and a starting rotation topped by left-hander Francisco Liriano and right-hander Gerrit Cole. The infield includes veteran second baseman Neil Walker, who hit a career-best 23 homers, and third baseman Josh Harrison, who had a breakout season in 2014. “We have a really good team,” McCutchen said. “And I believe the outfield will be our anchor.” McCutchen is a three-time MVP finalist in center field. He’s flanked by Starling Marte in left and Greg ory Polanco in right. All three of them can hit for power and a high average, have above-average speed and are very good defenders. “Right now, we are the best out field (in the majors),” Marte said. “I think we have a chance to catch every ball that’s hit.” Marte, 23, was a Gold Glove finalist last year and has batted .282 over his first three seasons. Polanco, 22, was the Pirates’ top prospect last year and played in 89 games after being called up in mid-June. “It’s all about getting to know each other,” McCutchen said. “When Marte first got here, I’d yell, ‘I’ll get it,’ (on a fly ball) then look and he’d already be there. Now, when the ball’s hit, I know he can get it. Now, I just have to figure out Polanco.” McCutchen, 28, should have plenty of time ahead to work with Marte and Polanco. McCutchen is in the middle of a six-year, $51.5 million contract, which includes a club option for 2018. “Andrew’s been a critical part of the team,” Pirates chairman Bob Nutting said. “I love having him in a Pittsburgh Pirates uniform and I hope he (wears it) for a long, long time.” Nutting and his front office group have begun to consider whether they should offer McCutchen a con tract extension. McCutchen will make $10 million this season, and management must decide if they Pirates can afford to double his sal ary in a longer-term deal. “It’s a challenge we’re looking forward to,” Nutting said. As he works out during spring training, McCutchen is not focused on getting a longer contract. “Right now, I’m not too wor ried about it,” McCutchen said. “It’s nothing that I’m thinking about. If it happens, that would be great.” A NDR E W M c CUT C H E N “We weren’t really thinking, ‘Oh he’s going to come during this road trip.’ Pretty crazy trip, for sure.” DUSTIN ACKLEY Seattle Mariners GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Major League Baseball is considering playing future spring training games in Cuba. Baseball players’ asso ciation president Tony Clark said Saturday there have been “ongoing” discus sions about playing exhibi tion games in Cuba, which recently renewed diplomatic ties with the United States. Clark said there were con versations about Cuba host ing games this spring, but there wasn’t enough time to finalize details. Cuba and the U.S. have a long-time connection through baseball. Several Cuban-born players have become stars on MLB teams. Major league teams regularly held spring train ing camps in Cuba in the 1940s and ‘50s. The Cincin nati Reds had a Triple-A affiliate in Havana before Fidel Castro banned profes sional sports. The Baltimore Orioles played a two-game exhibi tion series against the Cuban national team in 1999. The first game in Havana was the first by a major league team in 40 years. White Sox pitching ace Chris Sale has foot fracture GLENDALE, Ariz. — Chi cago White Sox ace left-hander Chris Sale has a fracture in his right foot and may miss opening day. The team announced that he’s expected to be sidelined at least three weeks. Sale, who was injured in an accident at his home on Friday, had X-rays of his foot Saturday at a hos pital in Glendale. He’ll have more tests after the swelling goes down. The 25-year-old was 12-4 with 208 strikeouts and a 2.17 ERA last season, finishing third in the American League Cy Young Award voting.

It’s before 8 a.m. in the desert and the veteran shortstop becomes a bit poetic about it all, the cross-country move back to his home state of California, going from wearing bright red in Philadelphia to a more subdued Dodger blue. “Same face, new place,” Rollins quipped Friday morning with that warm, familiar grin. “Obviously, I’m very familiar with the uniform growing up in California, so it’s not foreign to me. The numbers are much smaller. Red is so vibrant and out there that you don’t have to look to see red. Blue is so subtle and softer on the eye that I don’t really see the colors. It goes back to being familiar with the uniform, seeing it so often.” The Dodgers dealt for Rollins in December and will be receiv ing $1 million from the Phillies to cover part of his $11 million salary this season. He’s only a couple of days into spring training work at Camelback Ranch, still becoming acquainted with teammates and coaches and routines. Future games in Cuba possible TAMPA RAYS ROUNDUP


SPORT S Sunday, March 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C7 Sunday, March 1, 2015 | Daily News | Page C5 SPORTS PALM BEACH GARDENS (AP) — Padraig Harrington is a 36-hole leader on the PGA Tour for the first time in nearly five years and he knows he has a long way to go. A vicious storm Saturday at the Honda Classic made his weekend even longer. Harrington made six birdies in the 12 holes he played Satur day morning in the rain-delayed tournament to complete a 4-under 66 and take a one-shot lead over Patrick Reed, with Ian Poulter and Brendan Steele another shot behind. The third round ended 51 minutes after it started because of a storm that packed 50 mph gusts and dumped about 5 inches of rain on PGA National. The storm was so severe that it created an air bubble on the 18th green the size of a sea turtle, caused the sides of bunkers to cave in and toppled an electronic scoreboard off a platform and down to the bottom of a lake. Only 24 players completed a hole before the storm arrived, causing the third delay of the week. The plan was to return at 10 a.m. today to resume the round, and continue with the same pairings to play as much as possible on today. The tournament now is to end on Monday. LPGA: Lewis leads in Thailand CHONBURI, Thailand — Ameri can Stacy Lewis had a 1-over 73 for a one-stroke lead over South Korea’s Amy Yang in the Honda LPGA Thailand. The third-ranked Lewis took a three-shot lead into the day after opening with rounds of 66 and 64 on Siam Country Club’s Pattaya Old Course. She had a 13-under 203 total. Yang birdied the final two holes for a 71. Germany’s Sandra Gal was third at 11 under after a 68. Ko breaks course record CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand — Top-ranked Lydia Ko broke the course-record with a career-best 11-under 61 to take the second-round lead in the New Zealand Women’s Open. The 17-year-old New Zea lander, coming off a victory last week in the Women’s Australian Open, broke the Clearwater record of 63 set last year by Mi Hyang Lee in her victory. Ko rebounded from an opening bogey with an eagle on the par-5 second and birdied Nos. 4-7, 9-13 and 18. Coatsee up 2 at Joburg Open JOHANNESBURG — South Afri ca’s Wallie Coetsee shot a 2-under 70 on Royal Johannesburg and Kensington’s East Course to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the Joburg Open. Coetsee had a 14-under 201 total. South African’s Tjaart Van der Walt and Jacques Blaauw, and Eng lishmen David Howell and Steve Webster were tied for second. Grand Theft Auto: ATL HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — The No. 44 race car returned to its NASCAR shop in North Carolina on Saturday after it was recov ered along a remote road in suburban Atlanta, appar ently abandoned by the thieves who stole it from a hotel parking lot. While the discovery didn’t occur in nearly enough time for driver Travis Kvapil and Team XTREME to compete in today’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, it was a huge boost for the smallbudget operation in its bid to make the next event at Las Vegas. “There was no damage whatsoever,” team owner John Cohen told The Asso ciated Press. “Nothing was taken off the car. Even the antennas that went to the radio were still in the seats.” Police in Gwinnett County northeast of Atlanta received a suspicious vehi cle call at approximately 2:30 a.m. Saturday, nearly 24 hours after the race car was stolen, said Jeffery Richter, the public infor mation officer. A motorist spotted the No. 44 machine along a darkened road and quickly realized it must be the stolen race car. Cohen was called to the scene, confirmed it was his $250,000 race car off the shoulder of the road, and called a tow truck to take it back to their shop in subur ban Charlotte. “It was backwoods,” Cohen said. “There were no lights around. (The thieves) made sure no one could see them while they were get ting rid of the car.” While the truck and trailer that were hauling the race car weren’t found at the scene, the truck was spotted a few hours later in Stockbridge, Georgia, not far from the hotel where the theft took place, said Mor row police Detective Sgt. Larry Oglesby, who led the investigation in the south Atlanta suburb. “The truck was on the side of the road,” Oglesby said. “A citizen driving by noticed it and said, ‘Hey, that looks like the truck on TV.’ ” He said the handle on the driver side door was busted, as well as the ignition switch. While no arrests had been made, Oglesby said his department had a “person of interest” and was con tinuing to pursue leads to determine just how many people were involved. He also identified a vehicle used by the thieves, which was spotted on a surveil lance video. There was still no sign of the trailer and its other contents, which included a spare engine valued at $100,000 and racing equip ment valued at $17,500. “We’ve got two out of three,” Oglesby said. “Now we’re looking for the trailer.” The car was found about 20 miles from the hotel south of Atlanta where it was stolen early Friday. Since the truck and trailer had no mark ings to indicate they were part of a race team, police speculated that thieves likely didn’t realize what they had stolen and might abandon the high-powered car. “Have you seen that show ‘48 Hours?’ ” Cohen said. “I figured if we didn’t have it back in 48 hours, we were not getting the car back. The first 24 hours is crucial. It was definitely right at 24 hours when we got the car back.” The team didn’t bring a backup car to Atlanta, so it had to withdraw from today’s Sprint Cup race after missing Friday qualify ing. Kvapil was set to drive. Since the No. 44 car wasn’t damaged, Cohen said it should be able to run at Las Vegas with Kvapil behind the wheel. The team also plans to send a backup car. SUNRISE (AP) — Jaromir Jagr made his Florida debut and Scottie Upshall scored the go-ahead goal with 5:58 left in the Panthers’ 5-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. Acquired from New Jersey on Thursday for two draft picks, the 43-year-old Jagr had three shots on goal in a little over 17 minutes of ice time to help the Panthers outshoot the Sabres 47-14. Brandon Pirri scored twice for the Panthers. Nick Bjugstad also scored, and Derek MacKenzie added an empty-net goal with 17 seconds left. Roberto Luongo stopped 11 shots. Brad Boyes had three assists, and Brian Campbell added two. Torrey Mitchell, Andrej Meszaros and Cody Hodgson scored Buffalo, and Michal Neuvirth made 42 saves. Mitchell tied it 3 for Buffalo when he poked the puck between Luongo’s pads with 7:06 left in the third. The Panthers answered on Upshall’s slap shot from the right circle. Bjugstad broke a 2-2 tie with 1:29 left in the second. Bjugstad got the puck in front of the crease and poked it in. He leads the team with 22 goals. Also, the Panthers acquired forward Dany Heatley and a third-round pick in this year from the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday in exchange for forward Tomas Fleischmann. Red Wings 4, Predators 3 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tomas Tatar broke a tie on a power play at 9:06 of the third period to help Detroit beat Nashville. Tatar carried the puck toward the Nashville net and fired a backhander that deflected off Predators defenseman Roman Josi’s stick and past goalie Pekka Rinne. Tatar leads the Red Wings with 25 goals. . Bruins 4, Coyotes 1 BOSTON — Milan Lucic, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand each had a goal and an assist, helping the Boston Bruins send the Arizona Coyotes to their ninth straight loss. Zdeno Chara added a power-play goal and an assist for the Bruins, who won for the third time in four games following a six-game losing streak (0-4-2). Tuukka Rask made 31 saves for Boston after missing Friday’s win in New Jersey because he was sick. Hurricanes 5, Islanders 3 UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Jay McClement scored twice and Cam Ward made 21 saves as the Carolina Hurricanes beat the New York Islanders for their third straight win. McClement tied it 1-1 late in the first period and then scored again midway through the second for his sixth goal. Justin Faulk, Brad Malone and Michal Jordan also netted second-period goals for Carolina, which beat the Islanders for the first time in four meet ing this season. Devils 2, Blue Jackets 0 COLUMBUS, Ohio — Andy Greene scored, Travis Zajac added an empty-net goal, and Cory Schneider made 33 saves for his fourth shutout of the season to lead the New Jersey Devils past the Columbus Blue Jackets. Playing their lone road game in a 10-game, 23-day stretch, the Devils won for the first time in four away games. They had lost their previous two games overall. Canadiens 4, Maple Leafs 0 MONTREAL — Manny Malhotra scored his first goal with the Canadiens, Carey Price made 30 saves for his sixth shutout of the season, and Montreal beat the Toronto Maple Leafs. David Desharnais had two goals, and Tomas Plekanec also scored for Montreal (41-16-5), which has won four in a row and 14 of 19. The Maple Leafs (25-32-5) had a two-game winning streak snapped. Price, the NHL leader in save percentage and goals-against average, earned his 31st career shutout. Xfininty: Harvick stays dominant HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — Kevin Harvick turned in another dominating perfor mance Saturday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, holding off Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano in the Xfinity Series race. Harvick has won the Atlanta race in NASCAR’s second-tier series three years in a row and four times overall. Logano has been the runner-up the last two years. No one else was even close on this day. “It seems like I finish second on this track all the time,” said Logano, who came up just short of a victory from the pole. “I’m going to keep running this Xfinity Series race until I win it.” Good luck beating Harvick, the defending Sprint Cup champion and a 45-time winner in the Xfinity cars. In Atlanta, he’s especially tough, having mastered the art of running strong at the bottom of a track that is infamously rough on tires. Crafton rolls in Truck Series Matt Crafton romped to an easy win in the NASCAR Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday. Crafton, the two-time defending series champion, took over the lead on lap 59 and pulled away from there, setting the pace on the final 72 trips around the 1.54-mile trioval to win by a commanding 8.752 seconds. He was out front for a total of 85 laps in the 130-lap event. Erik Jones led 37 laps but faded to seventh, the last truck on the lead lap. Crafton, who started 15th in his Toyota, picked up his sixth career win and first in Atlanta, his favorite track. The 39-year-old was com ing off an eighth-place finish in the season opener, where he also filled in for injured Kyle Busch in the Daytona 500. “I was really, really dis appointed with qualifying,” Crafton said. “But I knew once the green flag dropped and we ran three laps, these boys are in trouble.” TR A VIS KV A PI L Stolen car found, but Kvapil won’t race today G O L F SPRIN T CUP AP Pit crew members work to service Kevin Harvick’s car during the NASCAR Xfinity series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday.

PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Outdoors SUNDAY , March 1, 2015 Email outdoors news to More coverage online at LOOK INSIDE For Lifestyle content: Ask Amy, Scrapbook, Out & About and more D3-6 Section D (Tombo Martin is one of the stars of Buck Commander on Outdoor Channel, a former major league baseball pitcher, graduate of Bay High and resident of our area. If you have a question for Tombo send it to mmcazalas@pcnh. com) Q : What type of rifle is your favorite for hunting around here? Should I be more worried about knockdown or accuracy? How much difference do all the calibers make? I have a 30-30, a .243 and a 30-06. There is a lot of brush where we hunt and most shots are 180 yards or less. A : My all around favorite caliber rifle is the .300 short mag. This is a versatile caliber rifle that is good for just about any hunt, anywhere in the country ranging from our favorite target, the whitetail deer, to his much larger relative, the elk. Of the three weapons you’ve mentioned, I think the .30-06 is a well-rounded caliber for deer in this area. It has plenty of knock down power and if you have good optics, you can reach out and touch them well past 200 yards. I would not want to shoot a 30-30 up to 200 yards although with today’s technology in optics and barrel accuracy, it is certainly not impossible to take an animal at that distance. My first rifle ever (that my awesome wife bought for me) was a Remington .270, and even that caliber has effective knock down power in that range. More importantly, though, is that I think too many people get caught up in the caliber of a rifle and don’t concentrate as much on the quality of their scopes. Experienced hunters will tell you that your weapon is only as good as the optics that you use. Being a typical guy, I would love nothing more than to hunt with an RPG, but that’s no way to fill a freezer. Accuracy always trumps knockdown power. A deer can live through many misplaced shots, but practically any bullet placed in the pump house will do the trick. Contributed photo Top to bottom: A 30-06, .243 and 30-30 rifles are shown. The versatile .300 is a favorite rifle Tombo Martin Throwing Lead Throwin g lead By FRANK SARGEANT It’s probably safe to say that this winter-without-end will actually end this month, or that it in fact already has ended with the storms of the past week. While that will surely bring a sigh of relief to the beleaguered citizens of the Northeast, it brings a stir of excitement to Panhandle docks. Spring means cobia time, perhaps the most anticipated season of the North Florida angler’s year. Each year, cobia by the hundreds follow the migrating baitfish up from the southern Gulf of Mexico, taking a left turn somewhere off St. Marks around the first week of March. They flow past Bald Point, Dog Island, St. George, St. Vincent, Cape San Blas, and then begin the parade along the Panhandle beaches at about Mexico Beach. The spring movement is nearly always westward—the fish are headed towards their spawning areas around the Mississippi Delta. The fishery typically gets good around St. Patrick’s Day, and continues into the final week of April. There are cobia around offshore reefs and buoys throughout the summer, but the “run” where sight-fishing is the big attraction is primarily an early spring rite. The fish are typically found in pods of 2 to 4, but sometimes more, and these migrating fish tend to be the larger ones, 20 pounds and up. Cobia over 100 pounds have been caught along the Panhandle beaches, including Thomas Hardy’s 128-pound, 12-ounce monster caught April 19, 1995 near Pensacola Beach, the IGFA line class record for 16-poundtest line. A 126-6 fish was caught off Destin, also on April 19 but in the year 2000, by Cindy Knight, and that fish stands as the women’s 30-pound IGFA record. Most of the IGFA line class records that have come from the Panhandle have come in midto late April. How to find them Cobia show up from anywhere just outside the “Green Bar”, the first bar off the beach, to a mile or two out, as well as around all sorts of buoys, piers, artificial reefs and other structure that holds bait. In sight fishing for them, the trick is to position the spotter, usually the captain, as high as possible above the water. Looking down through glare-cutting polarized sunglasses, the skipper can see the fish cruising along just below the surface— perhaps to soak up the spring sun, cobia frequently cruise just inches under the water. On calm days, they sometimes make occasional vee wakes or dimple the surface, making it easier to spot them. They’re easiest to spot with the sun behind the spotter, thus cruising east to west in the morning gives the best view, but since the fish are moving east to west, it’s also a little more difficult to run up on them on this leg. In the afternoons, the best view is cruising west to east, and since the fish are coming to the boat on this leg, it can be an effective tactic. On the downside, the fish will have been beaten on all morning by the time that afternoon view rolls around—cobia gets lots of pressure when the run is on, and it’s a rare fish that has not had a bait or lure in front of him before mid-day. The more lures and live baits they see and turn down, the less likely they become to take anything. (They seem to forget the pressure somewhat overnight, however—the early bite is often good.) Pier Fishing Cobia are one of the few heavyweights that pier anglers have a good shot at—the longer piers jut right out into their migration path, and anglers who stay alert can often get a shot or two at them during a morning. Simply hanging a live pinfish out under a float or even anchored to bottom can sometimes draw a bite. Gearing Up Cobia can be heavyweights, so stout tackle is in order—typical king mackerel gear is a good choice. Medium-heavy spinning gear and an 8-foot medium heavy action rod is a good choice, allowing long casts to get a bait in front of the fish and plenty of power to get them to the boat. Most anglers use 40to 50-pound braid these days on this open-face gear, with a length of 60-pound-test COBIA TIME Sight-fishing for ling is a favorite pursuit of North Florida anglers P hotos contributed by FRANK SARGEANT Cobia are now tightly regulated, with only 1 per day over 33 inches to the fork permitted for recreational harvest.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to with “Hook & Harvest” in the subject line. Butch Newell shot this nice buck at the Brick Bat Hunting Club in northern Bay County Feb. 21 during an afternoon hunt. Brayden Harris, 10, the son of Michael Harris, shot this 150-pound 3-point on Feb 18. It was his third of the season, his proud father reports. Jessie Eldridge shot this hog Feb. 24 in Port St. Joe, ending a dry spell during what he described as a “tough” hunting season. He took it with a .45-caliber muzzle loader on an afternoon hunt. Kyle Pridgen, right, shot this 9-point, 18-inch inside spread on Jan. 24 in Calhoun County on a morning hunt while the buck chased a doe. He’s pictured here with best friend Clinton Kelly, left. Ashley Woodrick, 12, took this 8-point in Pike County, Ala., on Jan. 20 while filming for Cast & Call Outdoors. Christopher McClain, 8, shot this buck on a Camo Dreams. Inc., hunt Feb. 21 with his father Chris (left) and Buck Commander Tombo Martin (right.). COBIA from Page D1 clear mono or fluorocarbon leader between line and hook or lure. Live bait generally works better than artificials, particularly after the fish have been pressured for a few weeks. Live pinfish, blue crabs, finger mullet and threadfins are all effective. One of the lesser-used but highly effective offerings is a saltwater catfish—with the spines clipped off, of course. The cats last a long time on the hook, and cobia seem to have a particular affinity for them. In the Panhandle, live eels about 8 to 10 inches long are also a favorite and are stocked by several of the better baitshops along the beach. The eels are extremely hard to handle with a bare hand—it’s essential to bring a towel to grip them long enough to hook them up. Most anglers use J-hooks in sizes 5/0 to 7/0, or circle hooks in slightly larger sizes for cobia. The advantage of the circle hooks are two—they hold most baits better, and they require no hook set on the take—you simply take up slack and start reeling. The circles are also easier to remove from undersized fish—cobia under 33 inches to the fork must be released. Artificial lures of many types work, but a 3/4 to 1.5 ounce bucktail jig with a swim-shad type plastic tail is among the favorites. Plastic eels and long black plastic worms rigged on a bare jig head can also be effective, and they also attack large, noisy topwater lures on occasion. I’ve not personally tried them, but some of my charter-captain pals tell me that the Berkley GULP! scented crab fished on a jig can also lure cobia bites. Whipping a Cobia Cobia typically make a powerful run when hooked, and if they’re close to a buoy, marker or other obstruction they often run right to it. The trick of expert anglers when this happens is, rather than trying to prevent the fish from reaching the structure by locking down the drag, to open the bail and free-line, preventing a cutoff. The boat is then moved to follow the line and unwrap it from the cover, at which point the battle can continue. Some cobia come to the boat fairly easily after the first run, and it’s common for them to have company — hooked fish often have a companion, or two or three, with them, so having a second rig handy for a quick drop can often result in a double. Putting a cobia in the boat is often the easy part of the battle. More than any other species, the cobia reserves the biggest part of the fight for after it hits the deck. They go absolutely bonkers once out of the water, and a big one can bust up a boat pretty badly. Best bet is to gaff the ones you intend to kill and jerk them directly into a big fish box, slam down the lid and sit on it until the fish exhausts itself. Otherwise, you’ll regret it. The waiting game Cobia fishing, though dramatic, is probably not the best pursuit for tourist anglers or those casually interested in the sport, including kids. It tends to be much like tarpon fishing, hours of boredom punctuated by moments of panic—it can be a long time between sightings of fish, even longer between bites, and the casting chores usually have to be left to the experts in the tower. Cobia conservation The cobia fishery used to be a meat fishery, with most anglers chasing the fish primarily for the very tasty fillets. There was no bag limit until 1990, when it was set at 2 fish, and that was ratcheted down to 1 fish per person in 2001, but boat anglers are still allowed to take up to six fish per trip if they have six anglers aboard. The take appears to have depleted the population; there are fewer fish, and far fewer really large fish, than there were 20 years ago, something that is notably not the case in better-protected species like tarpon and snook: both of these fisheries have more and larger fish than they did two decades back in Florida waters. Unwanted fish should be released immediately — the species definitely needs a little help from its friends to get back to levels that provide top quality fishing in many places. Cobia on the table Cobia is good in all sorts of recipes, but my favorite is simply to steak the fish into cuts about 1 inch thick, slather on some mayo and cook it over a very hot grill, turning once as each side browns slightly. They’re also very good grilled with Teriyaki sauce, or baked under a sauce of crushed Italian-style tomatoes with a bit of Parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top. For complete regulations on the species, visit . P hotos contributed by FRANK SARGEANT Live eels, available at some beach marinas and baitshops in cobia season, are among the top live baits for cobia.

ADOPTABLE Pet


ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t worry so much about how long this good thing will last. You make it last longer when you honor it with your best efforts. Engaging with that good thing makes it even better. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be involved in a project that requires you to think artistically. The end product must tell a story. In this matter, accuracy is not as important as keeping people entertained. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Self-discipline seems like one of the hardest things to acquire these days, but when you do acquire it, your life will expand. You might say it’s the key to a new world. CANCER (June 22-July 22): Being outnumbered or unpopular may be part of the challenge, but it doesn’t change anything. Also, it doesn’t matter if the bad outweighs the good. You still have to take a stand for what’s good. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There’s something false about sentimentality, and yet there’s something true about it, too. You may sense the danger in wallowing in that syrupy feeling. If you indulge in it, make it brief. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Love is an expansive feeling. Love doesn’t try to control or own or micromanage. If you feel like someone is stifling you with their love, what they’re projecting isn’t really love at all. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): If a person can’t really help you, then pretending to help is actually harmful. What matters in relationships today is usefulness and beneficence, and that’s what you strive to offer. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Symbols matter. They are remind ers of who you are and what you’ve done. Do not, however, confuse the symbol with what it represents. Material representations are nothing without the life behind them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): The importance of listening to those around you cannot be overstressed. It’s in our very biological makeup: Two ears and one mouth suggests we should listen twice as much as we talk. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): When faced with discouragement, think of it as a test to tease out your bravery. You are not a slave to your thought processes. You can change the thoughts, and what comes of them will change, too. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): People around you today are extra-touchy, but it’s not your fault they are so easily offended. Choose your kidding-around material carefully unless you’re willing to deal with the fallout. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): When you grow older, the younger person is still inside. That’s why you’ll be able to relate so well to the younger people around you today. They don’t want your advice, but they need your influence nonetheless.

The yellow blooming vine you see now is called Carolina Yellow Jasmine (Gelsemium sempervirens). It is an excellent plant for covering arbors, pergolas and fences and has been planted throughout the south since colonial times. Several cultivars are available, but “Staright” is an excellent choice. “Pride of Augusta,” a double flowering form, received the 2008 Georgia Gold Medal for vines. Many of you will be purchasing azaleas at this time of the year. The average size is 2 feet-12 feet tall and wide depending on the variety. If you have azaleas in your yard they are easy to move at this time, even though they may be in bloom, because they have a fibrous root system. Plant flowers in masses of a single color. Annuals such as snapdragons, pansies and marigolds will brighten the landscape. It’s generally best to plant light-colored flowers against a dark house and darkcolored flowers against a light colored house. Remember masses of a single color will have more impact than a speckled mishmash of plants. For those of you who wouldn’t plant roses in your yard because you might have to spray them every week then consider the right selection. The best all-around roses for our area are groups called China, Tea (not be confused with hybrid tea) and Noisette. To improve your odds of success, select a rose from one of these groups. If a man speaks in the desert and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong? HOWARD C.

By Pam Amick Klawitter Send questions via email to askamy@ or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611. Amy Dickinson Ask Amy Aunt feels invisible with no acknowledgment DEAR AMY: In yesterday’s mail we received a birth announcement of a new greatnephew, addressed only to my husband. Christmas cards, wedding announcements, birth announcements, thank-you cards — anything coming from his sister and her children all are addressed only to him. The most mention I ever get is “and Family.” One wedding invitation actually came to “Uncle John and Family.” Our children are grown so presumably I’m the nameless “Family.” I buy the presents and sign the cards and checks. There’s no animosity between us. I’ve known the kids since birth and they are all nice people. But each omission makes me feel, well, a bit unwanted. I’m tempted to have only my husband sign the card that I bought before the announcement arrived. I want him to tell his sister that this makes me feel sad and left out. He doesn’t see it as an issue and thinks I should ignore it, but he also says that since it bothers me, I should tell her myself. What’s your take? The Invisible Aunt DEAR AUNT: Your husband could have easily dealt with this years ago, because this lack of acknowledgment affects your place in the family. I agree that it is rude and hurtful. You don’t say whether there are circumstances that might affect his sister and her family’s refusal to acknowledge you — perhaps your husband had a previous wife and your sister-in-law has a misguided notion that you are not “real” family. Regardless, because your husband is slinking away from this, I agree with him that you should express yourself now. After all, his sister is already negating you, so it’s not like she can rescind an acknowledgment she never makes. Simply say, “I have a nagging question I hope you can help answer. Why is it that you and the kids never include my name on any family invitations or announcements?” Listen to her explanation and respond, “I want you to know that it bothers me. I consider myself very much a part of the family. I do all of the card buying and gift giving for John and me. I love all of my nieces and nephews, and think it would be great if you could keep that in mind.” DEAR AMY: Several weeks ago I read a letter in your column from “Angry Sister” that broke my heart. This young woman has been adversely affected by her sister’s instability and her frequent and disruptive moves back to the family home. She asked if she is a terrible person. No! I grew up with a sibling who is mentally ill and is now considered disabled. With community support my sib lives in an apartment, with visits from our family members who help with housework. At times we have had a strained relationship, until a year ago when I attended a Family-to-Family 12week program provided by NAMI(National Alliance on Mental Illness). The volunteer facilitators have family members who also are ill, and the support was overwhelming. This led to my understanding, and brought both of us so much healing. There is no charge for this valuable program. You will do your readers a great service by providing this information: . Grateful DEAR GRATEFUL: The family support offered through NAMI is excellent — I should have recommended it. Thank you for following up. DEAR AMY: I was amazed by your response to “Disappointed and Confused,” the mother of two middleaged children who asked how much they were getting when she informed them of their inheritance from an uncle. She was appalled that they would not express appreciation first. I’ll bet 99.9 percent of people would first want to know how much they were getting. Otherwise, how would they know how appreciative to be? It makes a big difference whether the inheritance is $50 or $50,000. That’s what I expected to see in your answer and was surprised when I didn’t. Surprised DEAR SURPRISED: The idea is to be equally appreciative, whether the “windfall” is an old teapot or $36,000 (which is what these children received). Their mother was appalled that they didn’t express any appreciation “before the greed kicked in,” and I agreed with her reaction. Howard Gray Botanists Corner BOTANISTS Corner


By J OSHUA GILLIN A spat between parents and administrators over a Seminole County high school history lesson in Islam has simmered into a minor cause clbre for online critics. Ron Wagner of Longwood com plained to a local TV station that his 15-year-old son was required to recite an Islamic prayer as part of a world history class at Lyman High School. The students also had to make an Islamic prayer rug as a homework assignment, according to Wagner, who said lessons like that don’t belong in public schools. “There’s a difference between teaching of the significance or the impact of a religion and teaching the specific tenets of the religion,” Wag ner told WFTV on Feb 9. Blogs and right-leaning media seized on the report, decrying the lessons as attempts to indoctrinate students. One blog,, featured a post on Feb. 12 with the headline, “Students In Fla. High School Forced To Recite Islamic Prayer, Make Prayer Rugs.” We don’t mean to pick on this one site — because there are many, many other places that have reblogged the report — and the writer did update the story after we asked him some questions. But the headline encapsulated the alleged events that have outraged so many people. Were students forced to recite an Islamic prayer and make prayer rugs at Lyman High School? PolitiFact Florida did our own homework. Taking notes Wagner met with Seminole County Public Schools administra tors on Oct. 17, 2014, to discuss concerns about his son’s 10th grade world history class. Wagner alleged the class had been told to recite the first of the five pillars of Islam as printed in their textbook — “There is no god, but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God.” The prayer, known as the shahada, is an affirma tion of faith among Muslims. Wagner also complained about 100 pages missing from his son’s history book and assignments to make Islamic prayer rugs and watch videos about Muslims. He said the teacher had contacted his son directly about the assignments via text messages, without his parents’ knowledge. Wagner’s wife, Lisa Huston, told PolitiFact Florida she and her hus band believed the school district was favoring Islam, and that the missing pages were possibly removed delib erately. The textbook, published by Prentice Hall, has been singled out by some Florida and national groups for allegedly being pro-Islam, although it is approved by districts nationwide. T he Department of Homeland Security refuses to release a report on “right-wing” terrorism that somehow found its way into CNN’s hands last week during the farcical White House summit on Don’t Say Islamic Extremism. Your tax dollars are once again hard at work — defaming conservatives, deflecting from worldwide murderous jihad and denying the public access to information they funded. CNN splashed the big scoop on its website: “DHS intelligence report warns of domestic right-wing terror threat.” The fear-mongering piece featured a huge map of 24 alleged acts of “violence by sovereign citizen extremists since 2010.” CNN’s Evan Perez and Wes Bruer prominently quoted Mark Potok of the widely disgraced propaganda outfit the Southern Poverty Law Center. Potok claimed that “there are as many as 300,000 people involved in some way with sovereign citizen extremism.” This is the same SPLC that was forced to apologize to famed neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson just last week for categorizing him as an “extremist” because he supports the traditional definition of marriage. This is the same hate-instigating SPLC whose target map and list of social conservative groups were used by left-wing domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins to shoot up the Washington, D.C., office of the Family Research Council in 2012. This is the same SPLC whose explicit aim, according to Potok, is to “destroy” its political opponents and which admits it is “not really set up to cover the extreme left.” Harper’s Magazine’s Ken Silverstein called the SPLC and its work “essentially a fraud” that “shuts down debate, stifles free speech, and most of all, raises a pile of money, very little of which is used on behalf of poor people.” None of these facts was mentioned in CNN’s report promoting the threat of “right-wing” terrorism. So you can see why I was curious to know more about the “24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks” the cable network kept citing without specifics. I asked both CNN and DHS for a copy of the assessment. CNN’s Bruer brusquely told me on Twitter: “Not public doc. But not new that gov’t lists sov. citizens as terror threat.” Sure, it’s “not new.” But CNN’s report was new (and conveniently timed to coincide with the White House agenda of talking about every other kind of terrorism besides jihad). I wanted to read the new document, not just what CNN and the SPLC want the public to know and think about it. Liberal media outlets have a bad habit of purposely misclassifying terrorist incidents as “right-wing.” Last April, both CNN and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow joined with the SPLC to foment fear of conservative Americans by claiming that “right-wingers” have killed 34 people since 9/11 for “political reasons,” while jihadists have killed 21. But a closer look at the rigging of that phony factoid simply confirms the malevolent intention of so-called objective journalists and “hate watch” groups to marginalize conservative political speech and dissent. The CNN/MSNBC/SPLC smear job involved both the dishonest deflating of left-wing and jihadist incidents, and the dishonest inflating of “right-wing” incidents. First, carving out the 3,000-person death toll from the 9/11 jihadist attacks is a rather convenient way to rig the scales, isn’t it? So is omitting the 10-person death toll from the jihad-inspired Beltway sniper spree of 2002. The conservatives-are-worse-than-jihadists casualty data counted Holocaust Memorial Museum shooter James Von Brunn, who killed a heroic security guard, as a “right-winger.” But Von Brunn was neither “left” nor “right.” He was a rage-filled maniac and 9/11 truther who hated Fox News, the Weekly Standard and Rupert Murdoch. Also counted as “right-wing” in the CNN/MSNBC/ SPLC data: Andrew Joseph Stack. He’s the lunatic who flew a small plane into an Austin, Texas, office complex that contained an Internal Revenue Service office in 2010. Stack’s ranting suicide manifesto targeted George W. Bush, health care insurers, the pharmaceutical industry and the “capitalist creed.” Also listed as “right-wing:” Richard Andrew Poplawski. He was the disgruntled, unemployed loser who shot and killed three Pittsburgh police officers in a horrifying bloodbath in 2009. Left-wing publications asserted that the “heated, apocalyptic rhetoric of the anti-Obama forces,” along with Fox News and Glenn Beck, motivated Poplawski to slay the officers. But Poplawski was an unemployment dropout from the Marines who threw a food tray at a drill instructor, had beaten his girlfriend, and demonstrated violent, racist tendencies that had nothing to do with politics. Poplawski was outraged that his mother wanted to kick him out of the house. Joshua Cartwright, another serial woman abuser, also murdered two police officers in the aftermath of a domestic violence call. Left-wing operatives focused on a single remark from Cartwright’s victim about his views on President Obama to paint him as a “right-wing radical,” whitewashing his long history of violence against his partner and senseless paranoia. Were any of these falsely classified incidents included in the DHS assessment hyped by CNN and SPLC last week? We’ll never know. When I asked DHS public affairs officer S.Y. Lee for the document, he told me it’s “not for public release” because it’s “an FOUO document (for official use only). Same as many DHS products to law enforcement.” I asked whether CNN now qualifies as “law enforcement.” No response. Michelle Malkin Syndicated columnist It’s a hit job to blame righty Websites: High schoolers recited Islamic prayer PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Viewpoints SUND A Y March 1, 2015 Section E Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun SEE P OLITIF A CT | E2 I s Hillary Rodham Clinton a McDonald’s Big Mac or a Chipotle burrito bowl? A can of Bud or a bottle of Blue Moon? JCPenney or J. Crew?” That was the opening question of a front-page Washington Post story on Clinton’s effort to figure out her “brand.” To that end, she has recruited a team of corporate marketing specialists to “help imagine Hillary 5.0.” “It’s exactly the same as selling an iPhone or a soft drink or a cereal,” Peter Sealey, a longtime corporate marketing strate gist, told the Post. “She needs to use everything a brand has: a dominant color, a logo, a sym bol. ... The symbol of a Mercedes is a three-pointed star. The symbol of Coca-Cola is the contour bottle. The symbol of McDonald’s is the golden arches. What is Clinton’s symbol?” A columnist less charitable — and less constrained by the rules of a family newspaper — might be tempted to suggest some fitting sym bols for Bill Clinton. But for Hillary, that’s a tougher question. Which is why the Hillary Indus trial Complex is setting up a Manhat tan Project to answer the question, “Who should Hillary be this time?” They’ll have their work cut out for them. More than any other politi cian in American life today, Hillary Clinton is an ironic figure. When she does or says anything, friends and foes alike ask, “Why did she do that?” “What was she thinking?” No one takes Clinton at face value because it seems that, after decades of public life, even Clinton doesn’t really know who she is — or at least who she should be this time around. Her fear of giving the wrong impression — before she can figure out what the right impression would be — has understandably encour aged risk aversion. Even friendly reviewers proclaimed that her book “Hard Choices” read like it was writ ten by a subcommittee tasked with avoiding saying anything. Fortunately, that will all change soon, now that Clinton has enlisted the help of the Purpose Institute, whose co-founder Haley Rushing is known as the “chief purposeologist.” Really. Alas, Rushing is not working on the Clinton campaign, but the institute’s other co-founder, market ing guru Roy Spence, is on board. By all accounts, Spence is great at what he does. Why, he conceived the “Don’t Mess With Texas” anti-litter ing campaign. Risking the accusation of damn ing Clinton with faint praise, let me say Clinton isn’t litter. Nor is she a Big Mac or an iPhone. She’s a human being who has been on the public stage for nearly four decades. And yet, according to the New York Times, she has a team of 200 policy advisers trying to figure out how to “address the anger about income inequality without overly vili fying the wealthy.” Brain trusts are fine, but this isn’t merely that. Since her days trying to overhaul health care, Clin ton has been the kind of wonk who thinks you can solve every problem by consulting enough experts and compiling enough data. There are some tasks that lend themselves to such approaches, but electoral poli tics isn’t one of them. Her husband knew that. He may not be able to put the formula in a strategy memo, but Bill Clinton could riff off the cuff in a way that could thread such needles with ease. That natural talent didn’t become community property when Bill and Hillary got married; she doesn’t have the gift. And so she compensates by controlling the things that she can control: an ever-expanding retinue of consultants and advisers who tell her not to worry about the missing ingre dient. That’s what they’re there for. The hitch is that the desperate quest to find a brand is itself a kind of branding. Former Republican Florida Gov. Charlie Crist tried to rebrand himself as a liberal Democrat in his bid to get back his old job. He lost in large part because the only image that stuck was his craven political opportunism, not Charlie Crist 2.0. No doubt many voters — and pundits — will happily buy whatever they come up with for Clinton. But others will focus not on what’s new in Hillary 5.0, but what is a constant in all of the versions so far: a purpose defined by the pursuit of power.

Page E2 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 pc .f su .e du matt er s VIEWPOINTS District executive direc tor of secondary education Michael Blasewitz con ducted an investigation in October to determine if Wagner’s allegations were legitimate. Blasewitz con cluded the teacher hadn’t violated any rules. Blasewitz repeated to PolitiFact Florida that the state has included Islam in its world history guide lines, and that Judaism and Christianity both are taught during the sixth grade, which the Florida Department of Education confirmed. You can read the entire district investigation report, but here are the highlights. Text messages: Wag ner’s son had enrolled in Remind 101, in which students sign up for a third-party text messag ing service for teachers to contact pupils about home work or class events. Bla sewitz said parents were allowed to opt in. Missing textbook pages: The district found that 68 of the year-old textbooks lost pages from a bind ing error. Teachers had reported the problem, but Blasewitz said the school didn’t tell the district. Pearson, the publisher, replaced all the faulty cop ies, he said. (The missing chapters do include more information on Judaism and Christianity in the con text of earlier civilizations.) Videos: The students watched short videos, including a TED Talk about stereotypes featur ing an unidentified IranianAmerican comedian. While the video did not violate guidelines, the district said a more straightforward selection should be made in future classes. Prayer rugs: Students were told to create prayer rugs, but the lesson was an assignment about Islamic art and not worship. The students were told they could incorporate any reli gious icons they wanted, as long as they observed Islamic artistic values, including no depictions of people or animals. The district said the assign ment could be seen as controversial and recom mended that a different art assignment “would be more appropriate.” Prayer recitation: Bla sewitz interviewed 10 stu dents in the teacher’s two world history classes, and only one remembered the whole class being made to recite the prayer. Other students recalled following the book together in class, and the teacher gave extra credit to students who volunteered to read aloud. The teacher may have written the pillars of Islam on the board, they said, but did not make the students say any of them. Huston insisted to us that at least one other student in a different class period remembered an event similar to her son’s version of events, but Bla sewitz said no other com plaints had been filed. Our ruling’s headline read, “Students In Fla. High School Forced To Recite Islamic Prayer, Make Prayer Rugs.” This makes it sound as if stu dents were being indoctri nated into a religion, and that’s not the case. Instead, students were studying the religion of Islam as part of a world history class. According to a district investigation, pupils were assigned to make prayer rugs as an art assignment. The district recommended a different art assignment be made from now on. As for reciting the pil lars of Islam in class, only one student complained his class was made to read the shahada. The investi gation cited a notable lack of evidence that anyone was forced to recite a prayer. The statement con tains an element of truth but ignores critical facts that would give a different impression. We rate it Mostly False. POLITIFACT from Page E1 Alabama stands in the doorway blocking same-sex marriage Same-sex marriage is legal in 37 states now (and about 10 other states have become bi-curious), but apparently not in Alabama. After two federal court decisions gave gays sashay room to walk down the aisle, elected Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore did his best George Wallace “Jim Crow standing in the schoolhouse door” imitation. He instructed Alabama probate judges to stop issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Chief Justice Moore looks like the mayor in “Dirty Dancing.” He has one of those awful, old Southern man, helmet hair haircuts that makes a clear statement: “No gay guy has ever touched my hair.” It is an image Alabama and the South do not need. Yet, this is just Alabama flexing its states’ rights muscle trying to delay the inevitable. Gay marriage in Alabama will eventually be like gay marriage in almost any other state, except that somehow a hounds-tooth hat will be incorporated into the ceremony. It is the position of Chief Justice Moore that homosexuals can marry as long as they don’t try to marry each other. Liza Minnelli can’t marry them all. He seems like the type of guy who would continue to try to set up Jim Nabors on dates well after “Gomer Pyle” ended. This is a fight that Candidate Obama, who agreed with Chief Justice Roy Moore on this, will pursue. AG Eric Holder’s office has the South on his speed dial. I’m a live-and-let-live Libertarian. Do what you want as long as you don’t try to do it to me. If what you do does not hurt anyone, government has no business in policing it. Conservatives can’t be for minimal government, liberty and freedom except in these areas where we interpret the Bible to mean you can’t. Marriage is a religious ceremony; its origins are Biblical. I respect folks’ Christian views, but if government bans gay marriage, why can’t it ban your religion? Freedom cuts both ways. Less government is more. I tried to understand the thinking of those who oppose gay marriage. I talked to my Uncle Mac, who lives in Alabama. He’s not a religious man, so he didn’t get all Leviticus on me about it. He summed it up: “Ronnie, you let them gay birds get to marrying and it will only end up weakening the institution of marriage for us other Alabamians. That’s a problem for me, since my wife and I can hardly stand the sight of each other as it is.” He went on to say he’d like to see legislatures ban gay marriage in hopes it would lead them to what really needs to be done: banning all marriages. My Drunkle Mac once challenged a lesbian construction co-worker to a wrestling match. Mac still brags that it was a tie. When he sees those baby changing stations in men’s restrooms, he will bring us in there to show us, thinking someone made a mistake. Neither political side seems able to recognize the vast difference between governing and meddling. The GOP seems to think that, but for its vigilance, everyone in America might run off and get all gay married. Democrats do not care what the laws are as long as they are complex, costly, mandatory, and they can inflict them on the rest of us. With all of our festering problems, I do not know why the GOP has to waste its currency making life difficult for consenting adults. Maybe politicians just don’t understand, since such a small percentage of their sex is actually consensual. I am a big proponent of state’s rights, so I’m torn on this one. It will be fun to watch this one. Alabama’s next step would be to amend its state Constitution to declare heterosexuality as the state’s official sexuality (and maybe, while they’re at it, banning the broadcast of the Tony Awards in the state). It would give lawyers and me easy work for years. Arizona had its Alabama moment when the state tried to defy federal law by essentially saying restaurants had the right to deny service to gay men. It was their “Nice shoes, nice shirtno service” policy. It ends up hurting a state. Southern states are coming to terms with the reality that they must allow samesex marriage. North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina and apparently Texas have issued same-sex marriage licenses of late. Gay marriage has long been legal in Oklahoma. But to be fair, once it had a flamboyant Broadway musical named after it, the writing was on the wall for Oklahoma. Ron Hart is a syndicated op-ed humorist, author and TV/radio commentator.

Page E3 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 1, 2015 Viewpoints Our VIEW Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun M y oldest son is handsome, smart, and, in the words of my old boss Ann Richards, very nearly perfect. I love him boundlessly, so it hurts me to know that his homeland has been at war for every single day of his life except for a few months in 2001 when he couldn’t yet crawl. Now he’s shaving, and for the first time in his life he might get to witness a real discussion about going to war. For his sake, I hope Congress is capable of having an adult conversation about whether to authorize war against ISIS. We could get by with the war authorization passed in 2001 that grants broad powers to fight international terrorism, but boy howdy, this conversation is long overdue. For a president whom Republicans brand as an America-hating traitor, Obama has overseen drone strikes in Somalia, Nigeria, Yemen and Pakistan, war in Iraq, Syria and Libya, and counterterrorism operations across the globe. But because all of these are covered by the congressional war authorization needed to fight Al-Qaeda, we’ve been at war constantly without once talking about whether it’s a good idea. Well, we did once. Remember yellow cake? Aluminum tubes? Weapons of mass destruction? “We don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud”? The trumped-up pretext to invade Iraq was our nationalsecurity Watergate. We were misled into a war that ideologues prosecuted badly, running up a moral and financial debt that’s still on our books. The 2002 Iraq War authorization hangs over us; what, exactly, are we getting into with ISIS? That’s what Jeb Bush had to address when he recently gave his foreign policy speech in Chicago. His speech was remarkable not for his delivery or the content but for the unwanted subtext he has to answer: Would he lead us into war like his brother did? As much as he wanted to get away with “I won’t talk about the past,” Jeb had to talk about the elephant in the room. Jeb is a useful catalyst in the discussion about whether to authorize war against ISIS. The literal question is whether fighting a land war against ISIS is in our national interest. The unspoken question is the same one Jeb is facing: Is this going to be like the liquor store robbery against Iraq in the early ’90s that George Bush the elder fought (In & out, no one got hurt) or the disastrous one that George Bush the lesser started a decade later. To paraphrase Raymond Carver, this is what we talk about when we talk about war. As much as Jeb has to position himself as the anti-Obama, he largely agreed with the president’s stance on warfare, even using the same words on ISIS. Said Jeb in Chicago, “You’ve got to tighten the noose, and take them out.” Said Obama some months ago, we have to “to take out” Islamic State militants. The real challenge for Jeb is to create some daylight between him and his big brother, and listening to all the same advisers who created the pretext for invading Iraq isn’t helping. That’s why it was so important for Jeb to say, “I’m my own man” in his foreign policy speech in Chicago last week. He can’t disavow his brother — the Bushes prize loyalty — but he can’t get elected dogcatcher in this country if he owns his brother’s war record. Jeb damned his brother with faint praise when he called the troop surge a “heroic act of courage,” which sounded a little like congratulating the arsonist for putting out a fire he started. Left upraised and unmentioned were the decisions to invade in the first place and then expect flowers to be thrown in front of unarmored Humvees. It’s between those lines we are meant to read. The Bush family isn’t the only one facing these questions. I’ll be talking with my sons about why we go to war and teach them that in a democracy they will be expected to participate in these decisions soon. Who knows? Maybe some day soon, they’ll experience a whole day when their country is not at war. T he sentiment behind the Boll Weevil Monument was sound. The statue in Enterprise, Alabama, which depicts a woman holding up a black boll weevil, is the “world’s only monument to an agricultural pest,” according to the city’s website. The fine citizens of Enterprise dedicated the statue in 1919 years after the boll weevil destroyed their cotton and forced the farmers of that town to lean on peanuts and other crops. In 1917 the farmers there were growing rich off the largest peanut crop in the nation. Someone thought it was a great idea to thank the boll weevil. The inscription on the statue reads: “In profound appreciation of the boll weevil and what it has done as the herald of prosperity this monument was erected by the citizens of Enterprise, Coffee County, Alabama.” That story might make some of us with an agricultural bent feel a measure of pride until, of course, you consider that the people of Enterprise really do live and work next to a giant statue of a woman holding a boll weevil. It’s perhaps not quite as ridiculous as the Mothman statue in West Virginia, but it is still shockingly ridiculous. Although, to be fair, if a private citizen wanted to build a statue in honor of Bay County’s Skunk Ape, we might be the first to pony up a donation. But before we take that thought too far, let’s move on. A citizen’s advisory committee heard pitches Tuesday from organizations vying for a share of $6.3 million in RESTORE funds. The committee will discuss the projects March 10, rank them April 14 and the Bay County Commission will pick and choose the recipients in May. The wish list includes: $2 million to help pay for an expansion of existing athletic facilities on Panama City Beach; $234,600 to Florida State University Panama City to implement a environmental/economic and oceanographic study program; $750,000 to Gulf World Marine Institute to build a rescue center to expand response and rehabilitation capabilities and an expansion of the institute’s education and research programs; and $1 million to expand high-speed data infrastructure to Bay County. There were more — many more — 22 proposals in all. And, so far, the county is taking the right approach with its share of RESTORE funds. However, it is important to note this particular pot of money is just a drop in bucket compared to what could be coming to Bay County and in comparison to what else is going on. The BP oil spill settlement created two other levels of government restoration programs. One at the state level, The Gulf Consortium, and another at the federal level, the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force. Over the next decade and longer, both of those entities will be looking for projects that will hopefully restore the environment and the lives of people who were economically harmed by the spill. Also, Bay County may get tens of millions in funds to spend as it pleases before the final bell rings. However, as they move forward, county officials should consider how many of the proposed projects are urgent and how many of them can wait. Some of the ones the county might choose to fund could, perhaps, be funded through the state or federal levels. Being patient and keeping their powder dry today could pay big dividends tomorrow. Also, the long-term effects of the spill are not yet clear. If, in five or 10 years, the county discovers a new environmental problem, officials will find it hard to get funding if they already have blown their settlement money on other things. Ultimately, we think the county should use these once-in-a-generation funds on projects that rise to a oncein-a-generation level. The projects should be something so big and beneficial that residents will always be able to point to them as the good that came of the spill. Hopefully, that won’t be a monument to a boll weevil or expensive research into the whereabouts of the everelusive Skunk Ape. .COM Friends and family of 5-monthold Madison Champion are bettering The Panhandle by helping her and her family as she she fights a congenital heart defect.

Advertorial Special to the News Herald Renting is more expensive than buying and owning a home by 20 percent according to a recent study by J.P. Morgan. In 2006, owning was 76 percent more expensive than renting, and former homeowners flocked to rentals as they sold their homes or were foreclosed upon. Today, however, buyers are not rushing to purchase homes even with still-historically low interest rates. Rising rents are quickly outpacing income in many major cities according a New York University study commissioned by Capital One. The cost of rent isn’t sustainable for many renters but those same renters aren’t being driven to purchase a home, either. The reasons stem from the aftermath of the housing crash. Some buyers are wary of a future bubble and subsequent crash. Many are unsure of their ability to obtain financing after a short sale or foreclosure, and may even be too embarrassed to have their credit checked. Still others are in the process of rebuilding their credit due to a lengthy foreclosure process. Interest rates are still low. Loan programs with low down payments are available. FHA now offers three percent down payment programs. Many lenders are offering conventional loans with five percent down. For renters who worry about a down payment or closing costs, down payment assistance programs exist in every part of the country. Buying a home in today’s market is possible. When you’re ready to go from renter to homeowner, find your Realtor at Renting costs more than owning

FIND IT ALL IN THE PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD SINGER MAKES A BIG SOUND JUDGE SUCCESSFUL AFTER HUMBLE BEGINNING IN THIS WEEK’S PAPER FRIDAY FEST RETURNS SEASONAL SURVIVORS Locals work to ‘make it’ in the service industry PANAMA CITY BEACH — After enduring five years of seasonal layoffs from her waitressing job, single mom Sheila Fuith decided she’d had enough. “Every October it closed. Every March it started back,” Fuith said of the restaurant on Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach, one of many that shuts down during the slow tourist season. “It was hard. I didn’t want to be laid off. I’d work every day if I could.” Fuith relied on unemployment checks through the winter months. And when the restaurant was open, she grew weary from the latenight shifts that kept her away from her 12-yearold daughter, Emily. “That’s a hard job working nights, and sometimes I didn’t get home until midnight or 1 a.m.,” Fuith said. “I had Emily. I knew what I had to do, but yet I was working until midnight every night. I made sure I was always there for her homework and stuff like that, but as she got older it got harder because she needed me more.” That challenge is one many workers face in Panama City Beach’s seasonal economy. According to data from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the hospitality industry lost about 4,000 workers between July and December of last year. Yet the data also shows it is possible to work in hospitality yearround. Although the number of jobs shrank by about 25 percent between the seasons last year, the slowest of months still supported more than 10,000 jobs in the area.

They each get a plate of pancakes, a cup of juice, a smile from a server — and a conversation about Jesus. “The whole idea with the pancakes is to have conversations,” said Sarah Edwards, a site coordinator. “We ask folks where they are in their life. We find out a lot of people are searching. They know there’s more to life than what they do and what’s happening this week. ... There’s no strings attached.” “Sunday is the best day for shopping.
