After his Sunday shift, he’ll wake up at 3 a.m. to make a six-hour drive to Baton Rouge, La. “If you like pine trees, you’re in heaven,” Jackson said of the drive. Along with his work in the Bay County Sheriff’s Office Reserve, he attends law school at Louisiana State University. Classes are from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday and 1:50 to 6 p.m. Tuesday. “That’s just lectures,” Jackson said. “When I’m not working at the Sheriff’s Office, I’m doing law school.” Jackson drives back from ASK AMY D6 SCRAPBOOK E4 CLASSIFIED F2-8 CROSSWORD D6 DEATHS B3 LIFESTYLE D1-6 LOTTERY A2 REAL ESTATE F1 NATION & WORLD A2-8 OUT & ABOUT D5 SPORTS C1-6 VIEWPOINTS E1-3 What’s INSIDE JAMES ANDERSON, AGE 3 First Presbyterian Pre-School Young ARTIST Call 850-747-5050 Want to SUBSCRIBE?

By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman PANAMA CITY — A hefty tourism economy weighed down Bay County in a recent study that ranked Florida communities based on workforce education and skills. Conducted by the University of West Florida’s Haas Center for Business Research & Economic Development, the study rated communities using a “Jobs Skills Index” compiled from employment and wage data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, as well as cost of living and overall attractiveness of an area. The study showed the Panama City-Lynn Haven-Panama City Beach metropolitan area had a harder time attracting and retaining skilled workers. It ranked 15th out of the 22 metros analyzed by economists, and was lower than the state and national averages. “Areas with lots of retirees and lots of tourists tended to score low,” said Haas Center Director Rick Harper. “Areas with a lot of business and education tended to score high.” The Tallahassee metro area ranked highest on the list, largely because of its high rate of state employees and number of major colleges and universities. Other Northwest Florida areas such as Crestview-Fort Walton Beach-Destin fared better than Panama City, ranking ninth, while the Pensacola-Ferry PassBrent metro area was in the middle of the pack at 11th. Although the data analyzed was from 2009 through 2011, Harper said he believes the numbers still hold true. While the federal data is highly reliable, it does come out with a lag. “Economic structure of an area doesn’t change very rapidly,” he said. “You’re not going to see Panama City go from a tourist hot spot to a manufacturing hub overnight.” As communities across the state compete to attract high-wage, highskilled jobs, Harper said the analysis provides an important snapshot of how certain areas measure up and what can be done to improve. “To me, as a policy analyst, the most important thing is to make sure kids going into elementary school that they come to kindergarten ready to learn,” Harper said. “Early childhood education, and I think scholars agree, is very important.

Page A2 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 8, 2015 FROM THE FRONT Baton Rouge and works Thursday through Sunday in Callaway. He hopes his hectic schedule will be worth it when he’s eventually accepted into a federal law enforcement agency. He’s gunning for the FBI but doesn’t want to set his expectations too high. Jackson was sworn in almost three years ago and already has earned a master’s degree in criminology with a shorter drive to Tallahassee. The Panama City native intended to follow in the family business, and started pre-med at the University of Florida. He went through a slew of majors and eventually ended up at Florida International University in Miami before he chose criminal jus tice. He already had made it out of the police academy. For now, though, Jackson’s plans for a family are on hold as he chases his career goals. He’s set to get his law degree in August. Jackson is one of many people going back to school while working in career jobs. All of them are concerned with advancement, but all have individual motivations: righting a wrong, pursu ing a career change or working for his or her family. In 2011, about 8.8 million people over the age of 25 attended college, about 40 percent of the total number of stu dents in degree-granting schools, according to National Center for Edu cation Statistics. Of those, 3.7 million were people age 35 or older. BACK TO THE BOOKS from Page A1 HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Deputy Barrett Jackson plans to finish his law degree this year while working full time at the Bay County Sheriff’s Office. Lisa Womack’s fianc, David, will complain sometimes that all she does is bury her face in textbooks. She happens to get home from work first, and they each fend for themselves at dinnertime. She has given him the concession that she will not take classes when they are married this summer. Womack is studying for a master’s in educa tion administration. Her free time is consumed with research papers and collaborative projects with her online classmates at University of West Florida. She aspires to be a principal or assistant principal mainly so she can be responsible for curriculum decisions. Curriculum is a constant part of Womack’s working responsibilities as one of Bay District Schools’ literacy coaches. Her home base is Waller Elementary, but she travels to elementary schools around the county. Much of Womack’s coaching is for teachers to help them with new standards, model les son plans and instruction on how to work with specific students. She works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. most days, with meetings and other work coming before and after school. Womack started her master’s courses in August — about the same time she shifted from middle school to elementary school lit eracy. Much of her teaching career, nine of 12 years, was as a sixth-grade teacher. Now, much of her focus is on kindergarten through second-graders. One of the biggest changes is catering les sons with fidgeting 6-year-olds in mind. “It’s been quite a shift,” she said. However, the change in environment is good if Womack wants to be an administrator. “Classroom teachers, we get in our own little world,” she said. “We don’t see what the district is trying to accomplish.” — BEN KLEINE Chevina Jackson has to put herself in the victim’s position. She needs to understand they often are angry, hurt, confused and shocked all at the same time. As the Bay County Sheriff’s Office’s vic tim advocate, some times she relays good news — money in our budget from the attorney general is going to pay for hospital expenses. Sometimes it’s bad news — don’t be dis heartened that the suspect is walking out of jail on bail. “It can be very emotional; any time there is a death, any time there are kids,” she said. “You try to compartmentalize.” Jackson usually is pretty tired after a full day’s work, sometimes more than eight hours. Still, she pushes through that to complete her bachelor’s degree in law enforcement intelligence. Some nights she has classes at Florida State University Panama City, where she is scheduled to gradu ate in May. Jackson also raises her 12year-old daughter by herself. “My daughter’s probably the weight that she is because I can’t cook all the time,” Jackson said of her slender daughter. The social calendar is packed. Last weekend, the younger Jackson had a middle school dance Friday and then woke up early for a karate tournament the next day. Her daughter is part of Jack son’s motivation to move up the career ladder, but she already has made significant strides. For 15 years, Jackson did air brushing and made gift baskets in Moreno Valley, Calif. She ended up moving to Panama City in 2006 after her husband was diag nosed with cancer because his family is from Bay County. She got a job at BCSO as a commu nications officer before he died in 2007. Jackson was content work ing as a dispatcher when Lt. Andy Thomas recommended she become a victim advocate. She originally turned it down because at the time it seemed like a daunting change. “When you’re asked to step up, you don’t turn it down,” she said. “He saw something in me that I could do this.” Jackson is a non-sworn sher iff’s employee, but her classes deal with crime scene investiga tion, obtaining search warrants and interviewing witnesses. “I want to be more diverse,” she said. — BEN KLEINE HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Lisa Womack is completing her master’s degree while working as a literacy coach at Waller Elementary School.

Page A6 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 8, 2015 outcomes from your schools.” The UWF team also weighed Florida against other states and found it also lags in attracting and retaining skilled workers. The Sunshine State ranked 39th out of 50. Becca Hardin, president of the Bay County Economic Development Alliance, said workforce is critical in attracting new business to a community. “From a fundamental standpoint, we’re never going to be at the table to negotiate a deal unless we can prove to a client that we have the work force to meet their needs,” Hardin said. “It’s very critical to what we do.” Although community lead ers have long pegged the area as lacking a skilled workforce, Hardin, who took over the organization last fall, said the issue is not as severe as she expected. “That’s something this community has placed an emphasis on,” she said, citing initiatives recently launched by education and workforce officials to bridge the gap.

There are a lot of assets in this com munity that set us apart from the competition. Those are some the things we’re trying to highlight.” Despite Bay County’s low ranking on the Job Skills Index, Larry Bur ton, franchise owner at Panama City employment agency Snelling Staffing Services, said he has seen the economy level out in recent years. “Five years ago, every thing was just temporary employees,” Burton said. “In the last two years we’ve done an awful lot more in our headhunting and recruiting side . to go out and find exceptional talent.” As one of the area’s only full-service employ ment agencies, Snel ling Staffing Services is responsible for recruiting for many of the area’s highskilled technical positions. During the last five years, Burton said Snelling has seen a greater demand for high-wage positions, and has not had a problem with finding local talent. He cited the two military bases as huge assets to the workforce. “We’ve had no trouble filling the highly technical or college degree jobs that come in,” Burton said. “Probably 98 percent of all our jobs are going to be filled locally.” When Panama City employees step into J. Wynn’s office, they’re often angry. As the benefits administrator for the city, Wynn is in charge of all medi cal insurance questions. She wants to go to bat for the employees who feel spurned, but she also navigates peo ple through a maze of co-pays, out-ofpocket maxes and ACA regulations. “In every discussion, I’m the mid dle person,” Wynn said. “I fight for what’s right.” She knows to not take it person ally when employees unleash a rant. Often it’s not even directed at her, but still it provides a foundation for fatigue. “The job is mentally exhausting,” Wynn said. Regardless of fatigue, one day a week Wynn will go from City Hall to Troy University’s local campus for a class needed to complete her master’s in psychology. Even those days, Wynn will get home and take care of her two children — 8-year-old Michael and 16-year-old Erykah. Erykah is mostly indepen dent these days, but J. Wynn’s normal routine with Michael is to have him sit at the kitchen counter to do home work while she prepares dinner. After everything is settled she attacks her school work, an everynight routine. She almost always falls asleep with her laptop or textbook on top of her. She is willing to sacrifice sleep in order to be there for her children as much as possible. She is determined to go to all of Michael’s sporting events. Erykah is a budding manga artist, participat ing in competitions and having her Japanese-inspired art displayed in the Visual Arts Center. Wynn takes her daughter to all those events. J. Wynn’s husband, Omega, is dis trict manager for Starbucks, an area encompassing Bay County and Tal lahassee. When he is home he helps out as much as possible, but he travels often. Her goal is to become a human resources director. “You get to see the whole picture,” J. Wynn said. When they were younger, she took a back seat to her husband’s career. Her bachelor’s degree is in business administration and she previously worked as a hospital statistician and an office manager for a real estate agent in Atlanta and Tallahassee.

During the day she is the nurse for Hyperbaric Medical Oxygen Therapy in Destin. Hyperbaric therapy, which simulates the pressurized air inside a subma rine at set depths, can treat con ditions that vary from diabetes to bed sores and brain trauma. Leles’ job is to stay with patients and adjust depths if there are complications. Leles already has a master’s in business administration. She previously worked for Gulf Coast State College and was the finan cial aid director for Florida Keys Community College. She was out of the workforce for 10 years at the behest of her exhusband. After she got a divorce, she realized no one wanted to hire a woman in her 50s. With classes through Gulf Coast Community College, she got her certification as a registered nurse. “I would hear about it all the time on the news how there were all these jobs in the health-care field,” she said. Leles currently is taking online classes with Gulf Coast to com plete her bachelor’s in nursing. The end goal is to be a nurse prac titioner at a clinic. — BEN KLEINE Diane Hagler: studying business administration Diane Hagler is on a furious charge to complete her master’s degree — having just completed her bachelor’s in business administration — to make up for lost time. Hagler married at 17 and started having children at 20. She said that was the expectation of her growing up in Ozark, Ala. She was married seven years before she got a divorce. “That just wasn’t me,” she said. She has worked for the city of Panama City for 15 years, moving back to where her husband once was stationed in the Navy. She worked in payroll most of that time but recently was promoted to a risk management position. “I’ve had people tell me, ‘I liked you better in payroll,’ ” Hagler said. “As long as it’s not personal, there won’t be a conflict.” Hagler said she would be happy to live the rest of her life in Panama City, but wants to be a human resources director. For now, she wants to keep advancing so she can spoil her two grandchildren who live in town. “I have more flexibility now to do things with my grandchildren than I did with my children,” she said. — BEN KLEINE BACK TO THE BOOKS Jean Marie Leles: studying nursing AP President Barack Obama, right, first lady Michelle Obama, Malia and Sasha as well as members of Congress and civil rights leaders make a symbolic walk Saturday across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala. SELMA, Ala. (AP) — In four minutes, President Barack Obama gave his daughters a living history lesson on the civil rights movement. Obama paid tribute Saturday to civil rights legends sung and unsung by leading a symbolic march across an Alabama bridge where throngs who protested their lack of voting rights 50 years ago were beaten by police on what is known as “Bloody Sunday.” Clasping hands with “one of my heroes,” Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Amelia Boynton, who was badly beaten on Bloody Sun day, Obama led several dozen peo ple across the infamous Edmund Pettus Bridge in his shirtsleeves underneath Alabama’s bright sun. Malia and Sasha, his teenage daughters, marched along with first lady Michelle Obama, her mother, Marian Robinson, and former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura. Lewis, an original Bloody Sun day participant whose head was cracked open by police as he led a group across the bridge, held court when Saturday’s group stopped after about four minutes, just after passing beneath the bridge awning bearing the name of Pettus, a brigadier general in the Confederate army. “I want to say what an extraor dinary honor this has been, espe cially to have Sasha and Malia,” Obama said of his 13-year-old and 16-year-old. Obama had said he was taking his daughters to Selma to “remind them of their own obligations.” “There are going to be marches for them to march, and struggles for them to fight. And if we’ve done our job, then that next generation is going to be picking up the torch, as well,” Obama said at a Black History Month observance at the White House last month.

By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB PANAMA CITY — Gulf Coast State College will offer an associate of science degree in entertainment technology by the fall semester. “It’s expanding on the music production program,” associate music professor Rusty Garner said. Garner said students who enroll in the program can get training in theater stage technology, which includes stage lighting, stage design and audio recording. The technology program prepares students to work as technicians in the music and entertainment industry. There also is supplemental training for those currently employed in those industries or who have been in the past. The entertainment technology degree broadens the college’s existing audio program for students who want to get an entrylevel position in theater or entertainment, Garner said. Students must have broader skills than what were required 20 or 30 years ago, and can get these skills from the program, he said. Running a soundboard isn’t enough anymore, said Garner, who added that those working in theater entertainment now must know how to set up a stage and do lighting design. Training in shooting and editing video also might be needed, he said. “The lines between the music industry and film are disappearing,” he said. Gulf Coast President John Holdnak said the faculty always is looking to adjust programs for the benefit of students, and that the performing arts division is looking to ensure they get a good job with their degrees. “It’s pretty exciting,” Holdnak said. Brian Baillif, who is Gulf Coast’s theater technical director and designer for set and lighting, said the entertainment technology degree is interdisciplinary. One-third of the program will be traditional theater aspects such as special effects and carpentry. Another third will focus on audio recording and handling microphone sounds. The final third will cover digital media, such as setting up and operating a camera. The digital media portion also will focus on editing and recording video. The way the theater industry is trending, Baillif said venues want technicians to handle all aspects of a performance. “The degree itself will take all those elements and merge them together,” he said. By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh PANAMA CITY — St. Andrew Bay Land Co. has submitted the final plat for the first phase of the SweetBay Development, and construction should soon follow at the site near University Academy Charter School. The preliminary plan for phase 1A was approved by the Panama City Planning Board in February 2014. The planning staff report states the final plat is consistent with the preliminary plan, including lot size and fire department and utility access. The plat includes 32 residential lots around Lisenby Avenue. The Planning Board will meet at 4 p.m. Monday at City Hall to review the final plat document and make a recommendation to the City Commission . GAC Construction has been working on the property since spring 2014. Developer Jacob Fish said model homes would be ready by the end of January. However, the final plat is the precursor to nine model homes being built. St. Andrew is soliciting public responses through its mailing list. One hundred more lots are planned for the rest of phase 1. “We’re definitely very excited,” St. Andrew Marketing Director Holly Pituch said. “We’re looking forward to get it going.” The SweetBay project covers more than 700 acres and is divided into seven phases over at least 15 years. Fish has said the speed of the subsequent phases will be determined by how well the lots sell. The charter school was completed in August. Also included in the project is 700,000 square feet of commercial and 3,200 single and multi-family units. St. Andrew is the local arm of HomeFed/Leucadia, which bought the property for $56.5 million in 2007. The site also features five miles of waterfront, and plans call for 100 acres of green space.

By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB PANAMA CITY BEACH — Dozens of dogs were on hand Saturday for the first DogFest at Frank Brown Park. They walked, barked and sniffed as their owners led them by leashes in the warm weather. There were games and donation booths along with a dog walk around the park’s pond. “It’s kind of like a walkathon,” event chairwoman Stephanie Cantrell said of the dog walk. DogFest raised money and awareness for Canine Companions for Independence, a nonprofit group that provides assistance dogs to disabled adults, children and veterans. Currently, there are no CCI dogs in the Panama City area. Cantrell also is the district representative of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs Florida. DogFest is organization’s twoyear state project, she said. DogFest’s local goal was to raise was $30,000. It had raised $27,587 by Saturday afternoon. Speakers at the event attested to the value of assistance dogs. Joyce Hoye came from Santa Rosa Beach to speak about how her dog, Bindi, has improved the life of her son, Jason Arnold, who has Down syndrome. “Jason has a forever friend,” Hoye said. She said she found out about CCI’s website and put in an application for an assistance dog for Jason. Bindi had had some training, Hoye said, and more training followed with Jason. The application process took two months before Jason received Bindi in November 2012. Jason is more independent and confident now, and has improved his speaking skills with his dog’s help. Tyndall Air Force Base resident Frank Manning attended DogFest after seeing an announcement on his Tyndall email. “I wanted to do something with my dog,” he said. In Manning’s case, it was his 1-year-old Dachshund, whose previous owner was deployed to Afghanistan. They both enjoyed the event. “They always have a good day,” Manning said of dogs.

Ron was born July 29, 1949, to Stephen and Martha Bigus of Lyndwood, Pa. He is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Susan; oldest son, Mark Bigus; twin siblings, Jason Bigus and Josette Jackson; and youngest daughter, Stefany Crocker. Ron is also survived by siblings, Barbara Cobb, George Bigus, Joseph Bigus; and grandchildren, Victoria Collum, Jude Gadney, Noah Gadney, Gabrielle Jackson and Cole Mason Bigus. He was a graduating member of the Hanover Township High School class of ’67 and a US Navy Veteran. While in the Navy, Ron studied electronics, which led him to a career in software and computer programming. Ron was largely self-taught in his career and he often told his children that if he didn’t know how to do something, he could always read about it and figure it out. And he could. Ron and Susan raised their family in Pennsylvania, where he was a wonderful little league coach and supporter of his children’s endeavors. Ron and Susan later moved to Florida to begin the next phase of their lives together. For Ron, this meant yearround golf and grilling, drinking his morning coffee while overlooking the golf course and the opportunity to see his wife perform vocally at local music venues. Ron also very much enjoyed professional sports and was a devoted fan of the New York Giants football team and New York Yankees baseball. Ron was an adoring husband who loved to spend time with his wife, and was always on hand to let her know when the apple pies should be brought out of the oven or to taste test the chocolate chip cookies. He was quick to joke with his family and friends and never met a pun he didn’t like. Ron also loved to take photographs and home movies of family get-togethers and treasured any time spent with his grandchildren, who will miss him dearly. Ron was an avid supporter of local charities. He was a sponsor of the annual Jeff Berberich Memorial Golf Invitational and for the past decade he organized and ran the annual putting contest to benefit Advocates for Children Inc. A memorial gathering will be held on Sunday, March 8, 2015, from 2-4 p.m. at Southerland Family Funeral Home in Panama City, Fla., for all who wish to attend. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Ron Bigus’ name to Advocates for Children Inc. PO Box 1521, Panama City, FL 32402.

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 March 6. HOUSE REGULAR BUDGET FOR HOMELAND SECURITY: Voting 257 for and 167 against, the House on March 3 passed a bill (HR 240) to fund the Department of Homeland Security at an annual rate of $39.7 billion for the remaining seven months of fiscal 2015 and avert a partial shutdown of the 231,000-employee, 16-agency department that was set to occur three days later. This bill was free of Republican objections to presidential immigration orders that had delayed its approval for several weeks. A yes vote was to send the bill to President Obama, who signed it into law. Voting yes: Gwen Graham Voting no: Jeff Miller RAIL-PASSENGER BUDGET: Voting 316 for and 101 against, the House on March 4 passed a bill (HR 749) that would authorize $7.2 billion through fiscal 2020 for rail-passenger service between U.S. cities, consisting of $5.3 billion for Amtrak operations and capital improvements, $1.2 billion for grants to state-operated passenger lines and $625 million for Amtrak debt service. The bill establishes Amtrak’s profitable Northeast Corridor service between Washington and Boston as a separate financial entity so that its surpluses could no longer be used to subsidize money-losing routes in other regions. The bill gives states greater say in the operation of Amtrak routes within their borders. In addition, the bill would allow short-cut environmental reviews of rail-passenger construction projects; launch a study into the possible restoration of passenger service between New Orleans, La., and Orlando, Fla.; permit passengers to travel with dog and cat pets and require American-made iron and steel to be used for capital improvements. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate, where it stands a chance of passage. Voting yes: Graham Voting no: Miller REMOVAL OF RAIL-PASSENGER SUBSIDIES: Voting 147 for and 272 against, the House on March 4 refused to strip HR 749 (above) of its subsidies of rail-passenger service, effectively killing the more than 15 money-losing Amtrak routes operating outside of the Northeast Corridor. Voting yes: Miller Voting no: Graham BOOST IN AMTRAK SECURITY: Voting 184 for and 232 against, the House on March 4 defeated a Democratic motion to increase the budget for Amtrak’s police force in HR 749 (above) by $150 million annually and require the force to give hiring preference to veterans. 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 NEW RULE FOR UNION ELECTIONS: Voting 53 for and 46 against, the Senate on March 4 approved a resolution (SJ Res 8) that would kill a new National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule compressing the time between the filing of a union-organizing petition and the vote on whether to unionize. Set to take effect April 14, the rule bars litigation intended mainly to delay elections and allows forms to be filed electronically with the NLRB during the election process instead of only by regular mail. In addition, the rule requires employers to provide organizers with workers’ email addresses and cell-phone numbers, going beyond the present requirement that they provide only names and home addresses. Established in 1934, the NLRB is charged with overseeing collective bargaining and protecting the workplace rights of both labor and management. A yes vote was to send the resolution to the House. If it passes there, it would require President Obama’s signature to take effect. Voting yes: Rubio Voting no: Nelson VETO OF KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE BILL: Voting 62 for and 37 against, the Senate on March 4 failed to reach a two-thirds majority needed to override President Obama’s veto of a bill (S 1) to require federal approval of a Keystone XL Pipeline section from the Canadian border to Steele City, Neb. This would be the final link in a nearly 4,000-mile Keystone XL network for shipping tar-sands crude from Hardisty, Alberta, to refineries in Texas and the Midwest and ports on the Texas Gulf Coast. TransCanada Corp. is the pipeline owner. A yes vote was to override the presidential veto. Voting yes: Rubio Voting no: Nelson Key Votes Ahead In the week of March 9, the Senate will debate a bill giving Congress more power to shape agreements negotiated by the administration over Iran’s nuclear program. The House will be in recess all week.

Tyndall Parkway Panama City, Fla. 850-785-1316 OBITUARIES from Page B3 Area & State BRIEF S From staff and wire reports LYNN HAVEN City could shave $40,000 off engineering costs due to new utilities bid The city has received a bid from Panhandle Engineering that should save it more than $40,000. The Florida Department of Transportation is requiring Lynn Haven to pay engineering costs related to relocating and adjusting water and sewer utilities for the widening of State 390 from two to six lanes. FDOT had estimated it would cost about $140,000 as a part of its engineering contract before the city’s meeting on Feb. 24. Panhandle Engineering, the city’s engineering firm, has proposed to do the same scope of engineering work for $99,975. At its meeting at 4 p.m. Tuesday, the City Commission also will consider applying for a grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for $95,000 for Porter Park, with a matching cost of $25,000. Planned renovations include boat ramps, docks, restrooms, a sea wall and parking lot. The Porter Park project also is in the running for $450,000 in RESTORE funding. Even if approved, those funds might not be available until 2016. PANAMA CITY Structure fire slows traffic A structure fire at 3903 W. 22nd Court on Saturday afternoon caused traffic delays in the neighborhood. Traffic was shut down between Grant and Drummond avenues while firefighters battled the blaze, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office said. The fire was reported about 4:20 p.m. Traffic was back to normal about an hour later. It was unclear Saturday evening if the fire had caused any significant damage or if anyone had been hurt. ST. PETERSBURG Coast Guard saves 12 people in rough water during regatta The Coast Guard pulled 12 people from rough water before organizers called off the Water Tribe Everglades Challenge small-craft regatta on Saturday.

The event was called off at a check point at the Cape Haze Marina in Englewood after numerous boats capsized. The Coast Guard said late Saturday that all participants had made it safely out of the water.

LOCA L & STATE Sunday, March 8, 2015 | The News Herald | Page B7 MIAMI (AP) — Developers are proposing to build the nation’s biggest shopping mall in northwestern MiamiDade County. The Miami Herald reported on Saturday that Canadian company Triple Five wants to develop the mega mall. Triple 5 opened the Mall of America, currently the nation’s largest shopping mall, in Minnesota in 1992. The company says the new mall, named American Dream Miami, will be even larger. The $4 billion entertainment and shopping complex will include an artificial ski slope, a lake with submarine rides, Legoland park, water park, sea lion show, indoor gardens and miniature golf course, among other attractions. “It is our intent that this project — American Dream Miami — will exceed our other world famous projects in all respects,” Triple Five said in a statement. The 200-acre development is expected to bring 25,000 jobs to the region. The proposed development still needs various approvals from local officials. Miami-Dade Mayor Carolos Gimenez told the newspaper that the development could provide a major economic boost for the region. “It takes a lot of logistics to keep a thing like that going. All the food, and the mechanical equipment, air-conditioning — there’s going to be a huge spin-off,” he said.

Supporters, including the National Rifle Association, say permit holders shouldn’t be forced to abandon their weapons simply because they walk onto a campus. They point out that permit holders must be at least 21, pass a background check and take a safety class or have served honorably in the military. State Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, the bill’s sponsor, said an armed student or employee may have been able to stop former FSU student Myron May’s Nov. 20 shooting spree before police arrived and killed him just outside the library. “Why are we stripping people’s inherent right to self-defense just because they’re on a college campus?” he said. “Why can they not carry on campus when they can carry at a shopping plaza, a restaurant, a mall, a park?” Opponents include Florida State University President John Thrasher, formerly a powerful legislator, along with the other 11 public university presidents, the campus police chiefs and the system’s Board of Governors. House Speaker Steve Crisafulli, R-Meritt Island, has expressed reservations about the bill (HB 4005). “I have my concerns about maybe a 21-year-old having a few drinks and carrying a gun,” he said. Eight other states allow concealed carry permit holders to bring their weapons to campus and 23 states leave it up to the school. Law student Harrison DuBosar, government affairs adviser for FSU’s student government, said polling shows a large majority of students opposed to campus carry. The student Senate unanimously passed a resolution against it, and students will lobby on FSU Day in the Legislature March 17, he said. At the University of South Florida, the College Republicans favor it, but most faculty and students oppose it, student body President Jean Cocco said. “We need to look at practicality, especially in residence halls,” he said. “College kids like to party.” But Marion Hammer, a former NRA national president and head of its Florida chapter, said opponents’ arguments are “emotional hysterics not based on fact.” “All the data from other states shows that guns on campus are not a problem when they’re carried by licensed adults” with concealed carry permits, “the safest group of gun owners, even safer than law enforcement.” The proposal has passed criminal justice committees in both the House and Senate, with the majority Republicans unanimously in favor and Democrats all opposed. The proposal next goes to higher education committees. Senate chairwoman Kelli Stargel said she favors the bill, and Steube said House chairwoman Elizabeth Porter has told him she’ll grant it a hearing. Still, Crisafulli said he’s unsure whether it will pass. “Do I give it a great chance of passing this year knowing that there’s strong emotions on all sides? I don’t know,” he said. If the bill fails, it will go against a long-standing trend, University of Central Florida political scientist Aubrey Jewett said. The NRA “is rarely beaten in this state when they take a strong position,” he said. In the 2014 Florida election, it spent nearly $2 million, much of it in independent expenditures, including opposing Democratic nominee Charlie Crist for governor. He lost. In 2008, Jewett noted, the Legislature overrode objections of the state’s most powerful business interests, including Walt Disney World, the state Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Retail Federation, to pass an NRA-backed law preventing employers from banning guns in cars in their parking lots. Gun control advocates could benefit because it’s a nonelection year, Jewett said. Legislators “are aware that the public pays more attention when they’re about to come up for election.” Hammer said that won’t make a difference. “We keep records.” Some Florida collegians could carry guns under proposal “ Why are we stripping people’s inherent right to self-defense just because they’re on a college campus? Why can they not carry on campus when they can carry at a shopping plaza, a restaurant, a mall, a park?” — State Rep. Greg Steube “ We need to look at practicality, especially in residence halls. College kids like to party.” Jean Cocco Student body president at the University of South Florida Nation’s largest mall planned for Miami PENSACOLA (AP) — Two Panhandle sheriff’s deputies have been arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a minor. The Pensacola News Journal reported the men faces charges of sexual assault and battery and have been jailed without bond. The Escambia county Sheriff’s office said the deputies have been placed on administrative leave and an investigation is ongoing. Sheriff David Morgan has declined to discuss the arrests pending a planned news conference on Monday. Authorities have also issued warrants for sexual battery and child neglect for a Okaloosa County couple linked to the investigation. 2 Panhandle sheriff’s deputies charged with sexual assault

The Tampa Tribune reported that attendance has climbed since the aquarium opened back in 1995. Attendance topped 750,000 for the first time in 2014. In its early years, the aquarium’s success was uncertain. The city had to make an unexpected $2.5 million payment on finishing touches before the aquarium opened and the aquarium lost $300,000 its first year. “We are doing very well,” said aquarium CEO Thom Stork. “We’ve had record attendance and revenues and that’s been a trend for the past few years.” Thom said attendance has increased each of the past five years. Admission tickets make up 75 percent of the annual $17 million budget. Donations, grants and a city subsidy make up the rest. The city still pays $6.7 million a year on construction debt for the project. But Tampa leaders say the aquarium has been a good thing for the city and has helped to jumpstart other developments in the downtown district. Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn said the aquarium fits with the redevelopment of the Channelside district downtown and “offers a uniqueness to downtown that most downtowns don’t have.” Florida Aquarium marks 20th anniversary Visitors from Ohio calling themselves the “The Infamous Ohio State Conch Marching Band,” compete in the group division of the 53rd Conch Shell Blowing Contest on Saturday in Key West.

Military, local teams admitted free to All-Star Classic Edwards looks to grab first Vegas win for GibbsL A S VEG A S (AP) — Two races into his new job, Carl Edwards is quickly finding his footing at Joe Gibbs Racing. He left Roush Fenway Racing, where he spent the first 11 years of his career, to drive a new fourth car this season at Gibbs. The move reunited him former Roush teammate Matt Kenseth, who has helped in Edwards’ transition to a new organization. “I thought it would be harder to find my place, but it’s really simple,” Edwards said. “Everybody is extremely open in the debriefs. It’s pretty amaz ing. I’ve already learned a ton about the guys’ differ ent driving styles. There’s a lot of information sharing between the drivers.” Edwards is teamed with Kenseth, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch, who was injured on the season-open ing weekend and is out indefinitely. But Busch’s replacement is former Roush driver David Ragan, who gives Edwards a famil iar face to work with. Now Edwards hopes to find success at JGR, per haps beginning today at Las Vegas Motor Speed way, where he’s a two-time winner. He has talked with new crew chief Darian Grubb about the importance of getting a win early in the season to lock down a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, some thing Edwards did last year when he won in March at Bristol. “If we can win anytime, at the point at which we feel like we’re locked in to the Chase, it definitely allows you to take gambles,” Edwards said. “It’s more fun to race that way, too, so this format allows guys that have wins to do that. Darian and I talked about it early, before the year even started. “Whatever we can do to get wins early so that we can go out there and be aggres sive, get those bonus points and really just have more fun racing, that’s what we want to do.” Edwards, who will start 14th today, would like to mimic the success Kenseth had two years ago when he moved to JGR. Kenseth picked up his first victory for Gibbs at Las Vegas, and went on to win seven more races and finish second in the championship standings. Kentucky’s Trey Lyles, bottom, looks for an opening as Florida’s Dorian FinneySmith (10) defends during the first half.A P By P A T McC ANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann P ANA M A CIT Y — It was the body language. Two weeks ago, Gulf Coast’s Christian Williams walked to the plate like a man heading for a root canal instead of his next at-bat. A few tentative swings ensued. Thank you for participating, pick up your 0 for 3 at the door. The transformation during the past 10 games was readily apparent on Saturday during the Commodores’ 17-3 seveninning win against Lewis & Clark at Bill Frazier Field. Not only was Williams walked four times by the Trailblaz ers, most likely a sign of respect from his long home run over the scoreboard on Friday, he blasted his second homer of the season when he did get a pitch to hit. Williams narrowly missed another when his drive was hauled in near the fence by center fielder Ethan Ruff. Williams and Gulf Coast, now 16-8 after a fifth straight win, LEXI N GTO N , Ky. (AP) — Trey Lyles scored 14 points, Karl-Anthony Towns added 13 with nine rebounds and No. 1 Ken tucky pulled away from Florida 67-50 on Saturday to complete the storied program’s first unbeaten regular season. A blue-clad sellout crowd cheered loudly as the final seconds wound down on the eight-time NCAA cham pions’ milestone achievement. Play ers soon donned blue T-shirts with “31-0” in white and the phrase “not done yet.” Towns, who missed last month’s matchup in Gainesville with strep throat, was essential in getting the Wildcats going toward history with 10 first-half points. He also grabbed six rebounds that were critical in helping Ken tucky (31-0, 18-0 Southeastern Conference) slowly pull away. Kasey Hill scored 15 points and Dorian Finney-Smith had 12 for Florida (15-16, 8-10), which couldn’t keep up with the Wildcats’ depth in the final 10 minutes. The Gators were outscored 46-13 in bench points alone and shot just 43 percent. Aaron Harrison added nine points while Willie Cauley-Stein and Andrew Harri son each had eight for Kentucky, which shot 47 percent and outrebounded the Gators 31-26.

It seems that more people are taking up turkey hunting every year. If you want try something you don’t know how to do, it’s best to look for someone who is good at it and emulate them. The first two turkeys I ever killed were by pure accident. I was deer hunting and the dogs ran them out in front of me and the rest was history. I’m sure I broke some law, but I was young and it was a long time ago so I don’t think any judge would put me on the chain gang today. When I did start seriously turkey hunting a few years ago, on my first try I had a gobbler fly down and almost land in my lap. I was thinking that there isn’t so much to this turkey hunting, so I figured I would make it a little more challenging. If it was as easy as my first hunt every time I went, pretty soon it would become boring. So I decided to take a friend under my wing (no pun intended) and invited Stan along to teach him a thing or two. As it turned out, Stan had taken up turkey hunting years earlier and I didn’t think it would be hard to kill a limit of turkeys with two sharp shooters along. That is where my turkey education really began. I couldn’t have experienced a bigger sack of bad luck. After hearing about all the birds Stan had killed over the years, I was sure we would probably wipe out all the turkeys in Washington County. We hunted what could be called a targetrich environment. Believe me when I tell you I never went to this property without hearing at least nine separate gobblers before 8 a.m. If you never have never hunted the bird, to do it correctly you get in the woods while it is still dark. Then you get to hear the woods waking up in the morning. The first thing you hear are owls. One will hoot and another will answer. This goes on until way past daylight. Next the redbirds start hammering away. When the sun comes up and an owl hoots, if it is near a roosting gobbler it will make the old male turkey gobble. Stan and I set out on our first hunt one warm spring morning and split up. Remember that was very dark, and the last thing you want to worry about is snakes. But that was all that was on my mind since I couldn’t see where my feet were going. I found a nice soft grassy place to sit down. You need to be comfortable because once you get settled you can’t move a muscle. Turkeys can see better than anything in the world. If you were over in Destin and a turkey was in Wewa I’m convinced it could see you. I proceeded to sit down and as I placed my right hand on the ground I placed it on a snake — a big fat one. I came up dropping shells, my hat and my gun. As I’m trying to get away from this snake, I stepped on another really big one. I had never had all this excitement before I brought along Stan; the black cat. On another hunt Stan brought along a tom turkey decoy that he assured me would draw a turkey from miles away. I was going to try and video the hunt for a television show, so I decide to sit separate from Stan and went over to some burned-out weeds and saplings to make a blind no turkey could ever make me out if he walked five feet away. Remember that it was dark as a dungeon and again I’m getting comfortable. As things were quieting down I felt something crawling up both my legs and arm. The next thing I know it felt like the world was on fire. I was sitting right on top of a fire ant bed. After doing a little dance and coming out of my clothes I looked over to see if Stan had witnessed this little episode. It was dark, so I could only wish he hadn’t. It was sort of cool, but as the sun came up it started to warm and so did I. About this time a bunch of coyotes came by chasing who knows what, and they sort of disappeared off toward a creek. I was thinking to myself there’s not a snowball’s chance of ever seeing a turkey with all these wild animals barking and singing not a quarter-mile away. So I let the warm sun do its stuff and put me to sleep. An anesthesiologist at the hospital couldn’t have done a better job. When I woke up, not 15 yards away stood a hen turkey. She had walked not five yards from me going over to the tom decoy. Stan said later he thought I was one of the best he had ever seen at holding still for a wild turkey to come so close and not see me. I got the camera ready because I was sure a tom was close at hand, but none showed. The hen then started acting funny and ran off. It wasn’t long before I saw something brown crawling on its belly toward the tom decoy. It was a coyote and a large one. I’m thinking we’re going to see a show when the coyote jumps on Stan’s new decoy that he had just purchased not a week ago, and that I’m going to get it all on video. They don’t call coyotes wily for nothing. That old dog turned his head and looked me straight in the eye, then looked at Stan and decided there was some other place he would rather be. The two of us were the world’s greatest when it came to calling up a flock of toms and hens. They would come easing our way and again I would only bring the camera to try and get something for television. Every time we thought we were going to strike they would hang up about 50 yards away and come no closer. Those birds would prance and fight and gaggle it seemed forever. I knew they couldn’t see us, but it was possible they smelled us. Probably not, but it didn’t matter what the problem was, they knew where the line in the sand was and would not cross it. I don’t think I’ll be doing much turkey hunting this year, but I’m sure Stan will be throwing fear into the hearts of turkeys from Washington County to Ocala. I don’t know what he’ll do without me along to help him. Kill one probably.

ANNOUNCEMENTS Cauley-Stein had seven rebounds, while Towns had six of the Wildcats’ eight blocks. For 30 minutes this game resembled last month’s battle in Gainesville, when the Gators gave the Wildcats one of their biggest challenges this before Ken tucky eventually took control in the second half. Kentucky was in charge for the most part this time but finally found continu ity after Devin Booker’s 3-pointer with 10:16 left made it 47-41. Kentucky’s 20-9 run after that sealed its accomplishment. The Wildcats entered with momentum from Tues day’s late escape at Georgia, perhaps the second-toughest gut check they have faced this season. That was a good thing, because the Wildcats needed that resolve against a Florida squad trying to avoid being a footnote in Kentucky’s historic quest. Florida trailed just 30-27 at halftime but led several times thanks to aggressive play on both ends. The Gators scored 10 points off seven Wildcats turnovers, outscored the Wildcats 11-2 on the break and forced the action inside, leading to an 18-16 advantage in the paint. Michael Frazier II’s return from a seven-game absence because of an ankle injury meanwhile contrib uted to Florida’s perimeter game that was effective in offsetting Kentucky’s other strengths. His 3-pointer early in the first half pro vided a 19-17 lead as well as an option the Wildcats had to account for. Kentucky eventually clamped down inside defen sively and asserted itself on the other end for several key baskets and a lot of free throws. The Wildcats made 12 of 16 from the line to pull away and take their place in program history. SO LONG, SENIORS Kentucky seniors Tod Lanter, Brian Long and Sam Malone entered the game with 12 points and 12 rebounds in 49 games com bined, yet still were honored as Wildcats heroes in a pre game ceremony. Long and Malone were part of the 2012 title team and last year’s run ner-up squad that included Lanter, a Lexington native who transferred from junior college. Coach John Calipari even started them to the sur prise of many, though not for long as Cauley-Stein, Aaron Harrison and Lyles replaced the trio of walk-ons 90 sec onds in. They re-entered in the final minute. BASKETBALL from Page C1 LAS VEGAS (AP) — Austin Dillon appeared headed to an easy victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway until four fresh tires helped Ryan Blaney chase him down. Blaney charged to Dillon’s back bum per and stalked him around the track for the final four laps Saturday, but a bobble ruined his momentum and allowed Dillon to wrap up the Xfinity Series win. Dillon led 183 of the 200 laps, but Blaney made it hard for him to close out the rout. “When you have something as good as this, you just don’t want to mess it up,” Dillon said. “It was a heck of a last two laps. I was just trying not to overdrive and trying not to make mistakes.” It was the third win of Dillon’s career, but first since 2012, when he ran full-time in NASCAR’s second tier series. Now in the Sprint Cup Series, Dillon runs only select races for Richard Chil dress Racing in the Xfinity Series.

SPORT S Sunday, March 8, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 ANDREW WARDLOW | The News Herald Mosley’s Holly Scott won the No. 1 girls singles title and teamed with Emily Whitlock to claim the No. 1 doubles crown on Saturday in the county tennis tournament. have been fattening up this week on northern schools just beginning their season. The all-state designated hitter as a freshman, though, has been hitting everybody recently. Saturday’s effort raised his batting average to .296. While not exorbitant, in mid-Feb ruary Williams wasn’t hitting his weight. He wasn’t hitting Marie Osmond’s weight. “Coach (Jerico) Weitzel has been working with me on keeping my weight back,” said Williams, a third baseman from Vero Beach. “My hips were sliding out.” That, and after gaining attention from many four-year programs during the fall, Williams was pressing. Starting to think about putting up big numbers in his final junior college season. “At first I was,” he admitted. “I put way too much pres sure on myself. I needed to just forget about that.” Williams’ fifth-inning shot was one of three two-run hom ers by the Commodores as they amassed 16 hits. Not to be overshadowed, Ryan Gvillo accounted for all three Lewis & Clark runs with a pair of homers off Gulf Coast winning pitcher Adam Bleday (5-1). The Commodores broke open the game with five runs in the third inning, Nelson’s two-run blast, his third, the big hit as Gulf Coast sent 11 batters to the plate. Nelson drove in three runs and is tied with Williams with 20, four behind team leader Trevor Davis. Gulf Coast sent 14 batters to the plate in the fifth when Williams finally got a pitch to hit. “After three walks I did” think the Trailblazers were pitching around him. “He (reliever Nick Parrino) got ahead of me with a change-up, then threw me the same pitch. I stayed back and drove it.” Bleday went five innings in an up-and-down perfor mance. He struck out four, had two wild pitches and yielded two runs on Gvillo’s initial homer — all in the first inning. Jake Thomas and Deviner McCray finished on the mound for Gulf Coast, Gvillo the only Trailblazer with two hits. The Commodores had many contributors on offense. Isaac Dillard was 3 for 3 with a two-run homer, Nelson 2 for 4 with a two-run homer, Dondrayas Harris had two doubles and an RBI, Davis and Wes Roberson each had two hits and Woody Edwards and C.J. Butts each had two RBIs. Williams nearly capped his performance with another home run in the sixth. “I got under it a little bit and hit it to the deepest part of the ballpark,” he said. Gulf Coast is off today, and hosts Kankakee 3 p.m. Mon day. Lewis & Clark fell to 0-2 on the season.

Junior Danny Young worked 3.1 scoreless innings to earn the save as the Gators notched their third win in a row. The Gators and Black Bears will complete the series today at noon CDT with sophomore Dane Dunning (3-0, 1.12) facing junior Jake Marks (0-2, 10.95) in a matchup of right-handers. Maine is 4-11. Softball FSU 2, Hofstra 1 BOCA RATON — No. 11 Florida State posted a comefrom-behind win over Hofstra in the FAU Parents’ Weekend Tournament. The Seminoles 16-5, trailed 1-0 entering the sixth inning, but scored one run each in the sixth and sev enth to post their seventh straight victory. Back-to-back singles by Bailey Schinella and Victoria East tied the game in the sixth. Florida State loaded the bases with one out in the seventh and Jessica Warren’s RBI single ended the game and dropped Hofstra to 7-7. Winning pitcher Jessica Burroughs pitched a four-hitter with 11 strikeouts. Florida State played later Saturday night against Florida Atlantic and closes the tournament against Coastal Caro lina this morning. DORAL (AP) — J.B. Holmes and Dustin Johnson each made a hole-in-one on the par-3 fourth hole in a span of 20 minutes. Holmes was in a league of his own in the final hour Saturday at the Cadillac Championship. His advantage down to one shot, Holmes answered by running off four straight birdies in the rain to expand his lead to the largest it has been all week. He closed with a bogey for a 2-under 70, leaving him five shots ahead of Johnson and Masters champion Bubba Watson. On a day of two aces, five other eagles on par 4s and even a scuba driver retrieving the 3-iron that Rory McIlroy heaved into the lake the day before, Holmes took some of the drama out of Doral with his late surge. Johnson, who made his ace with a 7-iron from 207 yards, converted a birdie on the par-4 16th to get within one shot. Holmes appeared to be struggling, with two bogeys on par 5s and only the hole-in-one keeping him in front. But the big hitter from Kentucky poured in a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 14, and he was on his way. Holmes went at the flag on the par-3 15th and made a 12-foot birdie putt. From the back bunker on the reachable 16th, he blasted out to tap-in range for another birdie. And as the rain came down harder, he got even better. He drilled a 333-yard drive down the middle of the 17th fairway and holed another 12-foot birdie putt. He ended with a bogey from the palm trees and fell back to 11-under 205. Even so, he looked to be a tough guy for Johnson (69), Watson (70) or anyone else to chase down. HSBC WOMEN’S CHAMPIONS SINGAPORE — South Korea’s Inbee Park shot a 4-under 68 to take a two-stroke lead over top-ranked Lydia Ko and Stacy Lewis in the HSBC Women’s Champions. The second-ranked Park had a bogey-free round to reach 13-under 203 on Sentosa’s Serapong Course. Ko and Lewis shot 67. The 17-year-old Ko is coming off victo ries in the Women’s Australian Open and New Zealand Women’s Open. The thirdranked Lewis won the 2013 tournament. Anna Nordqvist (68), Suzann Pet tersen (68) and Azahara Munoz (70) were 9 under. PUERTO RICO OPEN RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico — Scott Brown birdied the final two holes for a 5-under 67 and a share of the lead with Chris Smith in the PGA Tour’s wind-swept Puerto Rico Open. Brown, the 2013 win ner, matched Smith at 6-under 2010 at Trump International-Puerto Rico. Smith had a 68. Jon Curran and Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo were a stroke back. Cur ran had a 70, and Grillo shot 72. TALLAHASSEE — Arnold produced three region champions and qualified seven wrestlers for this week’s state tournament in the Region 1-1A meet that concluded on Saturday at Godby High School. The Marlins, who finished second as a team to Wakulla, were the lone area school to advance athletes to the state meet in Class 1A or 2A. “That’s the most we’ve ever had at Arnold,” coach Jeff Skipper said of the seven state qualifiers. “When the state extended the season almost three or four weeks it really wore on our kids. But the kids we’ve got are great kids. To get this many in an extended season is an amazing thing, I think.” Richie McClanahan, 126 pounds; Brock Carlan, 132; and Paul Pat terson, 138; each produced a region title as Arnold continued its sea son-long dominance in the lower weight classes. The Marlins didn’t fare poorly in the upper weights, either. Also advancing to state, which begins Friday in Kissimmee, were Brian Girard, Michael Harris, Randy Koscak and Michael Mosley. McClanhan, who placed second at state last year, improved to 52-3 for the season when he pinned Nick Toney of Bishop Kenney in the 126pound championship. Carlan, 54-5, followed with a pin against Max Owen of Wakulla in the 132-pound finals. Patterson then won the 138-pound crown with a 4-0 decision against Hunter Royce of Wakulla to boost his record to 49-4. Girard, 40-13, was fourth at 170 pounds, falling 11-4 to Nathan Cle land of Bishop Snyder in the thirdplace match. Harris, 45-9, was pinned by Tyler Foster of Suwannee in the 182-pound final and placed second. Koscak, 39-9, was third at 195, defeating Nicholas Cleland of Bishop Snyder 6-4 in his last match and Mosley, 42-13, was pinned by David Trigg of University Christian to place fourth at 220.

PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD SUNDAY , March 8, 2015 More coverage online at LOOK INSIDE For Lifestyle content: Ask Amy, Scrapbook, Out & About and more D3-6, E4 Section D Paws & Claws By TONY SIMMONS 747-5080 | @PCTonyS PANAMA CITY BEACH — It’s the time of the season for sea turtles to dig nests and lay eggs, which means it’s time for humans to be careful of their steps, their lights and what they leave behind when on the beaches. In a notice released Monday, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) asked people not to get too close, shine lights on, or take flash photos of nesting sea turtles. “It can be thrilling to watch a sea turtle crawl onto the beach at night and dig a large hole in the sand to lay dozens of eggs,” the notice said. “Just remember that ‘Do not disturb’ is the best behavior to follow when observing a nesting sea turtle.” Spring is the beginning of sea turtle nesting season in Florida, which continues through the end of October. In that period, thousands of sea turtles will come ashore on Atlantic and Gulf coast beaches to lay eggs in holes they burrow above the high tide line. Sea turtles have had a difficult winter, thanks to record-setting low temps in parts of the U.S. coastal waters. Gulf World Marine Park in Panama City Beach released a total of 20 sea turtles on Wednesday at St. George Island Park and Cape Palms Park at Cape San Blas. These turtles were from two separate winter events during which critically low temperatures caused the turtles to be “cold stunned.” One mass cold stun event in New England injured Kemp’s Ridley turtles, and the second took place in the St Joe Bay area, according to information from Gulf World. On Feb. 20, Gulf World received 12 cold stunned turtles for rehabilitation from St. Joe Bay, increasing the total number of animals in its rehab program to more than 25. This included the Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles Gulf World received from New England at the end of 2014. “Due to the hard work and dedication of volunteers, animal care staff and veterinarians, these sea turtles have been successfully rehabilitated and have been medically cleared to be released into the Gulf of Mexico,” the park statement said. Some of them may even wind up back on local beaches as nesting season gets under way. Florida hosts one of the largest loggerhead nesting aggregations in the world, according to the FWC, and this becomes an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to play important roles in conserving these long-lived reptiles. People can help by taking turtle-friendly precautions on the beach. “Take care when you’re on a Florida beach at night, and do not disturb the nesting sea turtles,” said Dr. Robbin Trindell, who leads the FWC’s sea turtle management program and was quoted in the news release. “People can help save threatened and endangered sea turtles by giving them enough space and privacy to safely and successfully lay their eggs. It’s as simple as keeping your distance and avoiding shining lights or taking flash photos of the nesting sea turtles.” Loggerheads, leatherbacks and green turtles are the primary species that nest in the Sunshine State. Loggerheads had a good nesting year in 2014, the FWC said, with 86,870 nests recorded statewide. “Conservation actions of Floridians and visitors to the state may have contributed to the general upward trend in sea turtle nest numbers in recent years. That’s wonderful news for the sea turtles,” said Trindell. “However, these species still face significant threats during their long-distance oceanic migrations. Whatever we can do to help our sea turtles will make a difference.” Here are ways you can help to protect nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings: • Remain at a distance from nesting sea turtles and hatchlings. • Remove chairs, canopies, boats and other items from the beach at night, because they block the movement of turtles and hatchings. • Turn off or shield lights along the beach to prevent hatchlings from getting confused and going toward lights on land instead of the salt water, where they belong. • Use red LED flashlights on the beach at night, adjust cell phone screens to dark mode and don’t take flash photos. • Fill in holes that people dug in the sand during the day, so nesting sea turtles and hatchlings don’t fall in and get stuck there at night. • Correctly dispose of fishing line, so it won’t entangle sea turtles and other animals. (Plastic rings from six-packs also pose a threat.) • Remember it is illegal to harm, harass or take sea turtles, their eggs and hatchlings, including getting too close to a nesting female. • Report sick, injured, entangled or dead sea turtles to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline, 1-888-404-3922 (FWCC). NESTING SEASON: ANOTHER WAY TO HELP: Support Florida’s sea turtles by purchasing the “Helping Sea Turtles Survive” license tag at Tag funds go toward sea turtle research, rescue and conservation efforts. People also can donate $5 and receive an FWC sea turtle decal. For decals or to learn more about sea turtles, go to online.

Baby loggerhead sea turtles burst forth from nest No. 5 and head toward the sea after dark. Five of the turtles left the nest earlier in the day, and 64 out of 70 eggs total hatched.

If so, and you’d like to see it in The News Herald, email a picture of your pet along with its name, age and owner’s name to and we’ll run it in our next Paws & Claws section. SUBMIT YOUR PET’S PHOTO C ELEBRATE Your Pets Joy Noble has a new baby: Blue, a 10-week-old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. “He loves to fetch, chew (everything), sleep under the bed, and basically just be ADORABLE!” she reports adding he has already learned some basic commands and shown a love of the water. Brittany Cole wants folks to know that Boomer is a rescued lab who is enjoying life with his new little sister. “He is her protector!” she said. Michelle Weis reports that her French Bulldog, Toad, just had his 6th birthday. “His favorite things include treats naps, and cuddling on the bed with momma when daddy leaves for work!” she said. Nancy Hallman has Dixie Grace, her grand-dog, shown here at 6 weeks old on her first trip to Shell Island. Dixie Grace turned 9 this month and still loves the island and chasing balls. Laura Green is proud to announce that Jazzy Fay turns 9 and still loves to stick her head out the window and retrieve railroad ties from the water. Donna Rankin says Sir Skipper Skywalker Rankin, 5, carries on just fine despite developing cataracts in both eyes and glaucoma in one, and he’s like a child to her. “He does not play fetch real well, but he does win at tug of war,” she said. “He is wearing the E. color because of allergies and chewing his backside.” She also reports Sir Skipper is “a BIG Caz fan and Tombo Martin.” Crystal McCauley reports that she’s drawing (also known as not paying attention to Chewy), he “slowly eases his way onto my lap – positioning himself between me and whatever I’m doing – and then looks back at me like this.” We agree that’s a tough look to ignore. Carla Appleman Thacker brings us Jojo, the guinea pig. Vikki Bruce owns Lu Lu and Huey, the “World’s Greatest Cats!” Kay Churchwell said Gracie recently turned 5 and is a rescue dog – deaf and severely injured when adopted. She’s been with Kay for three years now. “As of this year she is an only pet and demands attention,” Churchwell said. “She has no idea how loud she is, but my entire neighborhood knows.” Donna Hairston got Zoey and Gracie from The Lucky Puppy Rescue, but says, “They actually rescued me.” Cornel Brock shows us Casey the wonder dog and her cat Gracie. He describes it as a “complicated relationship.” Blake Martin said his AKC registered Boxer, 4, is very playful and “does a 360” when her owners arrive home. He’s had her, and her mother, their whole lives. Nicole Mincey says the message from Chaos is: “Smoking makes you look silly.” Melissa Rogers Hagan said Munchkin is a rescue cat who has elevated herself to “Hagan Beauty Editor and Chief Inspector” at the young age of 1.

He is a really calm cat, but when people come into his view, he loves to put on a show in the hope of getting their attention. He is happiest when he is being petted or brushed. Troy is a 2-year-old shorthaired domestic cat. His adoption fee is $25, and includes all vaccinations, neuter surgery and a microchip. You can visit Troy at the Bay County Animal Shelter, 6401 Bay Line Drive, Panama City. Details: 850-767-3333. Adoptable PETS Winnie is a perfect pug. He’s a sweet, playful, and well-mannered gentleman about 5years old. Life took a turn that I wasn’t expecting, and I ended up at Alaqua. I am one of 500 dogs/year that are diagnosed with a condition called diabetes. This is an easily treatable disease, but it is especially challenging to manage in a shelter environment. To adopt Winnie or any of our animals at Alaqua, fill out an adoption form at: www.alaquaanimalrefuge. org/ApplyforAdoption or call 850-880-6399. Just a reminder about N, P, K, (Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium) and how each affects plant growth. Nitrogen is part of the structure of protoplasm, chlorophyll and various plant foods. Dwarf Gardenia’s in the Publix shopping center show a deficiency of nitrogen. Indicated by yellowing at the tip of each leaf. Phosphorus is essential to cell division and aids root development, hastens maturity, stiffens tissues and stimulates flower and seed production. Potassium (in the form of potash) is necessary for the development of the roots. This is a good time to cut back your crepe myrtles. This will cause them to have larger blooms in the summer. Remember, these flowers form clusters of round green seed pods. Promptly remove these clusters before the pods turn brown by cutting just below them on a branch. The crepe myrtle will respond by sending out a new crop of flowers for late summer and fall. Many of you should consider lighting your outdoor space. Lights add beauty since flowers, trees, and shrubs can be colorful and attractive after dark. You can increase the family fun with lighting for sports, games and barbeques. Don’t plant grass where grass won’t grow. You can save yourself a lot of trouble by remembering three little words, grass needs sun. It doesn’t in most cases, look good in shade, no matter what. We have many choices that stay green all year and need little care. My two favorites are Ivy and Asiatic Jasmine. You might consider small application of fertilizer three to four weeks apart beginning in mid March will encourage flower production for next year. Choose azaleas while they are in bloom: consider planting the Encore series which is now for azaleas that grow in full fun and bloom year round. Over six varieties are available, but I’m going to list just two, Autumn Coral (pink) and Autumn Angel (white). HOWARD C. GRAY BOTANISTS Corner HOWARD GRAY Irish census fragments revive search By CLAUDIA STEINDL Bay County Genealogical Society If asked to pick one lesson from my years of tracing family histories; one tool that led to more successes; one tip I would pass on to other genealogists, it would be this: Return – Re-examine – Review – Retrace – Recount – Research – Repeat Quite often a crucial piece of information is not found the first time we search a source. Discounting a source as a “dead-end” is risky, as more information is continually discovered, and included in record collections. What was simply not there five or 10 years ago, or even last spring, might suddenly become a part of those records today. There is a fine line between efficiency, and diligently keeping our research efforts alive. My personal example: To trace Irish ancestry, it is imperative to know the townland where the ancestor originated. I only knew my great-great grandfather, John Philip Duke, came from Ireland. Even his approximate date of arrival merely led to his name on a passenger list. There the trail stopped; years of searching failed to reveal his heritage, as I had no clue to his family’s townland. Many Irish records exist; however, virtually all are arranged by county, then townland, and often parish. An excellent place to learn about available Irish resources can be found at . This free site lists many available genealogical records, and their content. These sources include the well-known Griffith’s Valuation, and Tithe Applotment Books. Census records also were kept beginning in 1821; however only the 1901 and 1911 survived. Fire and an explosion, plus an unfortunate decision to destroy records to create storage space, eliminated those early records as sources. Since my ancestor was in America by 1846, he would not have appeared in the 1900s census records, even if I knew his townland or searched them all. For decades we felt it was a hopeless quest. Even a search of the abundant church records, requires knowledge of the county and townland. Fragments of the 1821 through 1851 census records, salvaged after the 1922 explosion at the public records office in Dublin, recently were discovered. Our family member opted to search the meager few counties available for 1821. To his surprise, Duke families were located in several County Cavan townlands. Searching each of these locations, he was fortunate to find Philip Duke, his wife, Rose, and four children, residing in the townland of Corranery, Parish of Larah. My two-times Great Grandfather, John Philip, was not listed, as he was not born until 1825; however the names and ages of his siblings who likewise ended up in America, confirmed this was indeed the correct family. My three-times Great Grandparents, Philip and Rose, have names at last. Philip’s occupation, farmer and shoe maker, further validated this was the correct family, as my immigrant ancestor was a boot maker who operated his own boot shop in Independence, Mo. Without that return visit to the Irish census records, with retracing and reviewing, the newly added fragments might never have been searched. W ithout that return visit to the Irish census records, with retracing and reviewing, the newly added fragments might never have been searched.

The high poverty rate makes the job very challenging and stressful. We are all working long hours. This year I am dealing with a colleague in her early 40s, single, who readily admits her life outside of work is dull. She has half the number of students I do. For Christmas she gave all her students a small gift bag with treats. She has nicknames for all of them. She has driven them to practice when they missed the bus. She feeds them breakfast and gives them snacks for having a good day in class. When speaking with a parent, it is always positive — even if the student is failing multiple classes or has disruptive behavior. The students love her and call her “Mom.” Students have asked why I don’t buy or give them things. These are 14-yearolds. Even though I recognize their developmental stage, it is difficult now to enjoy my work when I am always being compared to “Mom.” How should I deal with this? Stressed Teacher DEAR STRESSED: “Mom” is either one of those rare and wonderful teachers who come along once in a generation, or she has a boundary issue (probably a bit of both). Encouraging students to address you as “Mom” and driving kids to practice, for instance, show questionable judgment. Regardless of this teacher’s qualities — or how she is perceived by students — you need to dig down and show the maturity they lack. Maybe there are techniques “Mom” employs that would work for your classes. Maybe not. Are you doing your best? If so, then remember that, and be proud. All you need ever say to your students is, “I’m doing my very best. And that’s what I expect of you too.” DEAR AMY: I couldn’t disagree more with the advice you gave “M,” the 18-year-old college freshman who slept with someone other than her boyfriend while she was away at college. 1. M never stated that she and her boyfriend had made a commitment to be in an exclusive relationship. Why is this automatically assumed? 2. M was not “cheating.” She was following her natural instincts and doing what firstyear college-age people (men and women) should be doing. 3. We are capable of loving more than one person if we can overcome the jealousies and the possessiveness that we have become conditioned to accept as justified normal responses. Men and women need to be more honest with each other. 4. You should have told M to tell her boyfriend that he too should see other women and that their loving relationship should continue. 5. You owe her an apology. You essentially called her a cheater and a flunky. You were way too harsh and misguided. B DEAR B: If “M” and her boyfriend of two years didn’t have an assumption of exclusivity, then her choice to have sex with someone else while at college would not have brought about the inevitable hurt, anguish and breakup that followed. I disagree with your assertion of what men and women in their first year of university “should” be doing. The period of late adolescence is definitely an appropriate time to experiment with sex and relationships, but part of the process is learning that there are natural consequences — relational and personal — to this experimentation. We human beings are definitely capable of loving more than one person, but it seems to go more smoothly if we don’t love more than one person at a time. As I reflected in my answer to “M,” she is immature, and this painful episode should be an important part of her learning. I hope the lesson also accompanied an apology to the boyfriend who feels betrayed. DEAR AMY: The letter about the preschool-age “Dueling Daughters” could have been written about me and my friend. We moms hit it off instantly but our kids just didn’t take to one another. Finally we just accepted that they were never going to be special friends, but our “mom” friendship continues to this day. Still Friends DEAR FRIENDS: Sometimes the wisest course is to give up on trying to push the kids into a friendship.

Amy Dickinson Ask Amy Your HOROSCOP E : Holiday Mathis SUNDAY, MARCH 8, 2015 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Sometimes it’s fun, but more often, making yourself remarkable takes arduous effort. Because you’re willing to go through the difficulty of mastering your talent, you’ll take the praise and awards in stride, too. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have limits just like everyone else, but your limitations are not where you think they are. In fact, the boundaries are so movable, you shouldn’t even think about them. Instead, follow your curious mind. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You want truth. You want it more than money or even love. It’s not an everyday quest. There are times when too much truth can be a burden. But it’s perfect for now, and you’ll get what you seek. CANCER (June 22-July 22): There is no reason to feel lost in the big world or afloat in the vast universe. Because the only thing you can experience right now is you, assume you’re at the center of it all, and turn it into a place that reflects you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll find the outside world to be neither inherently helpful nor hurtful, and neither is it beautiful or ugly. Rather, it’s a neutral place awaiting your take on it. Once you decide what you want to see, you’ll see it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re a kind of oneman band now, using technology to do many things at the same time. Does it have to be this way? It’s certainly less complicated than it would be otherwise. At least you don’t have to report to anyone else. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’re curious about what you can become through thinking and action. Answer: anything you want to be, but not everything you want to be. You’ll focus on one thing and deliver. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You will air grievances and let them go. That doesn’t mean you’ll go back to the way things were before the problem came up. Relationships will heal, but the healing will change them, too. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): The natural world is a living mystery, full of clues. You’ll read the signs in nature and feel a great sense of connection when you figure out where those signs are pointing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you had a personal sound effect today, it would be the sound of tumultuous applause, because so much of what you do will be met with enthusiastic approval. Your status is on the rise. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): There is not another church or creed on Earth that could inform you as well as your own intuition. It may be telling you to “do nothing at all,” and if so, that is as valid an instruction as any. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The ocean tide may be mighty, but it’s a kind of drone really, obeying the gravitational pull of the moon. You and the moon have something in common now. You’re both more powerful than you realize. CHANGE YO UR CLOCKS Time of Day 763-1701


The problem with modernday politics, aside from everything, is that it lacks consistent excitement. Sure, there are moments when debate over a major bill gets attention, but our interest fades once the bill passes, and we drift back to more intriguing things, like reality television shows about dumb people. Last week, however, lawmakers in the GOPcontrolled Congress took a step that could turn American politics into must-see TV: They serialized democracy. At issue was a bill to continue funding the Department of Homeland Security, the folks responsible for protecting our borders and keeping the country safe from terrorism. Most would agree it’s important to have that part of the government functioning, largely so it can do its “keeping the country safe from terrorism” thing. After the requisite amount of harrumphing and whatnot, lawmakers could have just funded the department and moved on to other matters, allowing us to get bored and shift our attention to the myriad Kardashians we have to keep up with. Instead, a wily group of Republicans decided the homeland security funding bill would be a great thing to use as leverage against President Barack Obama’s recent executive action on immigration, which is supposed to shield from deportation about 5 million immigrants who live in the U.S. illegally. The GOP lawmakers said they would only fund the Department of Homeland Security if the bill also rolled back Obama’s executive action, which they say is illegal and tyrannical and really hurt their feelings. The problem is, Democrats won’t vote for a DHS funding bill that overrides the president’s immigration action, and even if they did, Obama would veto the whole thing. Also, the president’s attempt at immigration reform was recently suspended by a federal judge. But legal limbo and the Sisyphean nature of legislatively doing away with Obama’s executive action would not deter these Republicans. They stuck to their guns, shot down shortterm funding measures and — as the clock ticked to the deadline — finally agreed PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Viewpoints SUNDAY March 8, 2015 Section E A great week for regulators T he rule of law is in grave danger, as federal regulators use ever thinner legal pretexts to enable vast public policy changes without votes by our elected representatives. In a span of just seven days from Feb. 26 to March 4, the FCC declared the Internet a public utility, Congress acceded to DHS implementing executive amnesty, the president used a veto threat to protect the NLRB’s ambush elections rule and the Supreme Court’s four liberals showed they are not just willing but enthusiastic to allow the IRS to ignore the plain language of Obamacare. A great week for regulators, but a terrible week for everyone else. The FCC order regulating the Internet was written by political operatives in the White House, is over 300 pages long and — even though it was approved on a party-line 3-to-2 vote on Feb. 26 —still has not been released to the public. The man who reportedly convinced President Obama to demand the FCC, which is supposed to be an independent agency, to adopt his plan was Tumblr CEO David Karp, who when asked the most rudimentary question about the economics of the order replied, “Ummm, uhhhh, I confess. Not my area of expertise.” Now, the same radical pressure groups that have long pushed for such regulations, funded by $196 million from George Soros and the Ford Foundation, are launching a major effort to scare Congress — the legitimate legislative branch of the federal government — into sitting on their hands and not acting on the issue. The union agenda was emphatically rejected when the card check bill, a union wish list that included ending private ballot protections for organizing elections crashed and burned in Obama’s first term. Undeterred, the president stacked the NLRB with union lawyers via “recess appointments” made when the Senate was not in recess. When the Supreme Court struck down the illegal appointments in an emphatic 9-to-0 decision, Harry Reid threatened to use the nuclear option to break Senate rules to stack the board again. (Reid later went beyond threats and actually executed the nuclear option to allow Obama to stack the DC Circuit court that reviews agency actions, enabling further abuses of agency power.) The union lawyers at the NLRB recently adopted an ambush elections rule that allows union organizers to demand surprise elections at a strategic moment of their choosing, before employees have an opportunity to consider the arguments against joining a union. The Senate voted to overturn the rule this week, but President Obama promised to use his veto to keep the rule in effect even though it is opposed by Congress. Worst of all, the Supreme Court appears to be seriously entertaining allowing an IRS rule that magically transfigures, created by the federal secretary of Health and Human Services, into “an exchange established by the state.” That little IRS magic spends billions of taxpayer dollars on subsidies and triggers employer mandate penalties, causing jobs to be destroyed and shifts cut in states that lawfully opted out. The rule is absurd on its face. But it may be upheld and if it is, we will officially be in an era in which agencies like the IRS can do the opposite of what the laws actually say. This is all in just one week. (I haven’t even mentioned that the EPA remains as committed as ever to coercing states into adopting cap-and-trade energy taxes that were rejected by Congress.) The shifting of ever more power into the presidency and his regulatory apparatus is a long running problem, but it has accelerated dramatically in the current administration. President Obama is now even reportedly exploring the possibly of usurping Congress’s most fundamental power by directly ordering tax hikes. We are, if the American people don’t wake up and demand better, on the brink of losing our constitutional form of government forever in favor of a soft tyranny of federal regulators constrained only by elite opinion and quadrennial presidential elections. Rick Scott: Average Floridian pays $1,800 in state taxes, lowest in country Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun Rex Huppke Syndicated columnist By STEVE CONTORNO Gov. Rick Scott rattled off a laundry list of first-term accomplishments during his State of the State speech March 3. Chief among them were his efforts to cut taxes in the Sunshine State the past four years. “We are home to over 250 languages. We are at a 43year-low in our crime rate. We are absolutely the best melting pot in the world. Housing prices are up. And taxes are down,” Scott said. “We have cut taxes more than 40 times in the last four years. We have no personal income tax, and the average person only pays about $1,800 in state taxes — which is the lowest of all 50 states.” As we said in another fact-check, the bit about cutting taxes more than 40 times rates Half True. Here, we decided to look at Scott’s claim that the average person pays $1,800 a year in state taxes, the lowest of all 50 states. We crunched the numbers ourselves and compared that to multiple other tax watchdogs that use U.S. Census data to calculate taxes collected per capita. According to the Florida Department of Revenue, the state collected about $33.6 billion in taxes in fiscal year 2014. In 2013, Florida’s population, according to the U.S. Census, was about 19.6 million. Do the math, and that’s $1,711 taxes collected per capita. Scott’s office pointed us to the Federation of Tax Administrators, a nonpartisan group that serves the principal tax collection agencies in all 50 states. A 2013 analysis based on data from the U.S. Census, which surveys every state government each year to ask how much they collected in taxes, found the taxes Florida collected per capita were $1,769. That number was also cited by the Kaiser Family Foundation, another nonpartisan organization. Both those figures are close to the number Scott cited. But there’s a notable Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee communications director Matt Thornton told Politico, “If this is a harbinger of things to come, the American public is in for a very long, painful and unproductive Congress.” That’s one way to look at things. The other is that America is in for a long, gloriously dramatic and delightfully farcical new season of “Congress.” THIS WEEK ON ‘CONGRESS’ Congressional dysfunction, the serialized tragicomedy SEE SC O TT | E2 SEE HUPPKE | E2 “ The average person only pays about $1,800 in state taxes — which is the lowest of all 50 states.” Gov.

to give the Department of Homeland Security a week’s worth of additional money. Several Republicans criticized their own party for being unable to reach agreement on a longterm bill that would keep the DHS running. And Democrats, naturally, had a field day. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee communications director Matt Thornton told Politico, “If this is a harbinger of things to come, the American public is in for a very long, painful and unproductive Congress.” That’s one way to look at things. The other is that America is in for a long, gloriously dramatic and delightfully farcical new season of “Congress.” With a one-week funding extension, Republicans gave us not just a dramatic cliffhanger — What happens when the homeland you love is no longer protected? — but the promise of another week of political intrigue. Will Obama cave to the GOP’s pressure, take back his executive action and finally admit he’s a Kenyan-born radical transported through time to bring American society to its knees? Will House Speaker John Boehner rise from his office tanning bed, march to the congressional clubhouse where ultraconservative lawmakers make forts out of stacks of money and shout, “SERIOUSLY, GUYS?!?” This is not a failure to govern on the part of Republicans. It’s an ingenious way to methodically push the political narrative forward and keep Americans enthralled. Perhaps the wildly popular public radio podcast “Serial” — which drew millions of online listeners by using an episodic format — gave lawmakers this idea. Wherever the concept came from, it’s gold. Following the Republicans’ “short-term decisions equal long-term drama” lead, Democrats should now restrict their legislative actions to a maximum of seven days. For example, rather than flatly vetoing the GOP’s Keystone XL pipeline bill, Obama should have issued a special oneweek veto. That would have given us days of delicious bickering between legislators, oil companies and environmentalists. Why watch “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when you could see “The Real Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statements for the Keystone XL Pipeline Project of the State Department”? Here’s the bottom line: Episodic politics would put plenty of butts on sofas and finally get Americans tuning in to what their government is doing or, in most cases, not doing. What’s to lose? If the whole process is going to be ridiculous, it might as well be ridiculously good TV. Rex Huppke is a columnist for the Chicago Tribune and a noted hypocrisy enthusiast.

But in yet another ethical misstep, the Clinton political machine is having to answer for taking $1.6 billion into its foundation; much came from foreign governments like Saudi Arabia and the UAE, as well as from a long list of corporations and politically motivated individuals seeking favor from America’s most powerful and pliable political family. Of the seven top donors of $25 million or more, four were foreign. In essence, the Clinton foundation has become a Super PAC to advance her brand and political ambitions and to finance the couple’s lifestyle. It is a semilegal way to shake down folks for money. One L.A. writer has noted that only a fraction of the funds collected have gone to true charities. The foundation has spent over $ 50 million in “travel” for the Clintons — over $12 million in 2011 alone. Taxpayers pay for their Secret Service protection, so you can imagine what our portion costs. As only Democrats can do with a straight face, the Clintons burn massive amounts of fuel in big private jets to go and lecture us on carbon emissions. And who approved Bill’s bigbucks speeches? Hillary’s State Department. Hmm. I guess the way they keep the spark in their relationship as they age is trying new and exciting things. Most foundations are based on the altruism of self-made entrepreneurs and are designed to give back efficiently. If Hillary gave lots of money to a cause close to her heart, like buying pantsuits for starving third-world girls, we would understand. Every foundation’s goals align with the founder. The Tiger Woods Foundation has done remarkable work for a cause close to his heart: teaching young boys how to delete their texts on their cell phones so Mommy doesn’t see them. Maybe Bill and Tiger could work together to raise money for loose women they have adversely affected. Donations could go to their favorite charity (not a stripper named Charity). I’d suggest Tiger and Slick Willie name their joint philanthropic effort “The Boys Will Be Boys Club.” The Clinton foundation is nothing more than a political operation disguised as charity. It is why Obama had his IRS, via Lois Lerner, target opposition Tea Party groups. They realize the power of political operations masquerading as foundations. You can do what you want with the money you collect, donors get a tax deduction, you are not subject to onerous election laws and you get to point to your “great work” while touting yourself as a selfless philanthropist. Republican presidential contenders like Jeb Bush, Rand Paul and Scott Walker get none of these benefits, creating a huge edge for their opponents. Imagine the advantage of $1.6 billion flowing unfettered through your grifting hands if you are, essentially, a politician. Foundations like the Clintons’ are just an extension of what powerdependent Democrats are good at: semi-extorting others for money under the pretense of doing some good. But both parties know it is for political cover, access and to advance personal ambition. Foundations can enhance a reputation. You can see why the Hilton Family Foundation gave a grant to Paris Hilton to change her name to “Days Inn.” Hillary was awarded the Helen Keller Humanitarian Award for her work — presumably for turning a blind eye to both Benghazi and to Bill’s shenanigans. She does well managing Obama’s missteps with Israel while advancing her own agenda. In every meeting with Israelis leaders, she reminded them that three of Bill’s last four girlfriends were Jewish. Democrats will find it hard to play the “Republican War on Women” ruse, given Bill Clinton’s history with blaming the women who accused him of sexual advances. And a Hillary who paid her female staff 38 percent less than the male staffers, and who gladly takes money from Arab governments without ever confronting them on the treatment of women in their countries, has no credibility on the issue. In many Arab countries, the American movie “Thelma and Louise” is only 15 minutes long because all the scenes showing women driving must be edited out. The Clinton foundation, like French, Italian and Clinton marriages, works better for them if you don’t ask too many questions.

To arrive at the per capita figure, you’re including millions of people, namely children, who either pay no taxes or some nominal amount (the sales tax on a toy purchased with allowance money, for example). With this caveat in mind, looking at taxes collected per capita is still a useful tool for comparing tax burdens across state lines. It’s not a perfect comparison — some states may have larger proportions of their residents who pay taxes — but it is used by several national tax policy groups. The most recent estimates say Florida’s state tax burden is among the lowest in the country. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Federation of Tax Administrators, at $1,769, Florida’s tax burden in 2013 was the lowest in the country, beating out Georgia ($1,781), New Hampshire ($1,791), South Dakota ($1,815) and South Carolina ($1,827). At $7,325 per person, North Dakota’s state tax burden is the highest. Our own calculation, achieved by comparing the U.S. Census 2013 Annual Survey of State Government Tax Collections to 2013 population data, put Florida third, behind New Hampshire and Georgia. The Tax Policy Center, a joint venture from the Brookings Institution and Urban Institute, ranked Florida fourth in its most recent analysis from 2012. Lastly, if you think per capita is a silly way of comparing tax liabilities, know that Florida has a low tax burden by another measure: percent of total income paid to taxes. According to the Federation of Tax Administrators, 4.4 percent of all income earned by Floridians goes to state taxes. That percentage is the thirdlowest in the country behind New Hampshire (3.7 percent) and South Dakota (4.1 percent). Our ruling Scott said, “The average person only pays about $1,800 in state taxes — which is the lowest of all 50 states.” That’s not exactly what the average person pays in taxes; it’s actually the state taxes collected per capita, which factors in children and other residents who pay little to nothing in taxes. That’s not necessarily the impression you would get from Scott’s statement. Still, according to two credible analyses, that number was the lowest in the country in 2013, the last year of available data. Other breakdowns put Florida among four states with the lowest tax burden per capita. We rate Scott’s statement Mostly True.

Page E3 | The News Herald | Sunday, March 8, 2015 ST E V E SACK | The Minneapolis Star Tribune Viewpoints Once bitten, twice shy A lthough it took 30 years, the hysteria created by Jaws (both the blockbuster film directed by Steven Spielberg and the successful book by Peter Benchley) may have finally subsided. Many of us remember the alleged summer of the shark (a hysterical bit of nonsense perpetrated on the public in 2001 to get ratings up at the 24-hour news networks) fewer of us were around for the first iteration in 1975. When Jaws came out it lived up to its word and many people (irrationally) decided that they would never go into the water again. According to the Internet Movie Database there were numerous “shark” incidents across the country. “In one, a beach in Southern California was cleared by lifeguards due to sharks in the water, which turned out to be dolphins,” the website reports. In another “an immature pygmy sperm whale that beached itself was beaten to death by bystanders who mistook it for a shark.” However, the reaction of the public and the media to the capture, tag and release of a great white shark in the Gulf of Mexico off Panama City Beach last week has mostly been positive. Most of the commenters on Facebook were far more concerned about the wellbeing of the shark than they were about what kind of danger it and its brethren could pose to swimmers. There are, of course, dangers associated with swimming in the ocean. Most of them are pests, like jellyfish rather than the life threatening kind. However, sharks, especially great white sharks, offer virtually no threat to local swimmers. We are far more likely to kill them than they are to kill us. “You have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than being attacked by a shark,” NOAA Fisheries Research Biologist John Carlson told The News Herald’s Ben Kleine. Here’s how National Geographic puts it: “Of the 100-plus annual shark attacks worldwide, fully one-third to one-half are attributable to great whites. However, most of these are not fatal, and new research finds that great whites, who are naturally curious, are “sample biting” then releasing their victims rather than preying on humans. It’s not a terribly comforting distinction, but it does indicate that humans are not actually on the great white’s menu.” As movie buffs probably already know there are several famous stories about Spielberg’s shark movie. The director named the shark, “Bruce,” after his lawyer. The mechanical shark worked great in a tank but malfunctioned multiple times in the salt water where filming took place. That led Spielberg to change his plan which probably made for a better and more successful movie. The shark itself is hardly ever seen and that gives the film a feeling most of us would associate with Alfred Hitchcock’s work. Of course, the shark in Jaws really is not a shark at all but a fictional and nearly unkillable movie monster that has more in common with Freddy Krueger than he does to any real creature. “Knowing what I know now, I could never write that book today,” Benchley said years later, according to his obituary. “Sharks don’t target human beings, and they certainly don’t hold grudges.” Hopefully, after all this time, we’ve stopped holding a grudge against the great white.

L ook out — the Supreme Court’s black-robed gang of far-right ideologues is rampaging again! The fiveman clan is firing potshots at Obamacare — and their political recklessness endangers justice, the court’s own integrity and the health of millions of innocent bystanders. In an attempt to override the law, these socalled “justices” have jumped on a wagonload of legalistic BS named King v. Burwell. But that case is a very rickety legal vehicle. It sprang from a frivolous lawsuit concocted in 2010 by a right-wing front group funded by such selfserving oligarchs as the Koch brothers, Big Oil, Big Tobacco and Big Pharma. The chairman of the front group was neither delicate nor discrete in describing the purpose of the lawsuit as a raw political assault on Obamacare: “This bastard has to be killed as a matter of political hygiene,” he howled at the time. “I do not care how this is done, whether it’s dismembered, whether we drive a stake through its heart ... I don’t care who does it, whether it’s some court some place or the United States Congress.” So much for the intellectual depth of the King case, which was fabricated on a twisted interpretation of only four words in the 906-page health care law. The plaintiffs claim that the law prohibits insurance subsidies to the millions of low and middleincome Americans living in the 36 states that did not set up a state exchange — thus making health care unaffordable to millions of hard-working Americans and small business who are purchasing insurance on the federal exchange, essentially nullifying the heart of Obamacare. Both the district and appeals courts rejected that perverse ideological Tommyrot, and even the nation’s largest health care provider called the claim “absurd.” Nonetheless, the gang of supremes grabbed the case as a chance to wreak their own brand of ideological havoc on a law they personally dislike. By taking over this case, these Republican judges have openly become partisans, thrusting the Supreme Court itself into the forefront of the GOP’s war against Obamacare — and against Obama himself. While we know an antigovernment group funded by plutocratic corporate powers is behind the lawsuit intended to terminate Obamacare, who are the four people who are out front as the actual plaintiffs in the case? The Competitive Enterprise Institute is the corporate front, but it had no standing to sue, so it had to find some actual people who would claim they’ve been harmed by the health care law. Thus, David King, a 64-year-old Vietnam vet, was recruited to be the lead plaintiff in King v. Burwell, which is now in the Supreme Court’s hands. He and three co-plaintiffs were chosen to put sympathetic human faces on what essentially is a right-wing political ploy. But who are they? An investigative article in Mother Jones magazine by Stephanie Mencimer reveals that King’s modest income as a selfemployed limo driver exempts him from Obamacare’s insurance mandate — so he’s done no harm by the law and therefore has no standing to sue. Moreover, as a veteran, he’s entitled to VA care and, in a few months, to Medicare, making him double-covered by public health programs. Mr. King’s main reason for being on CEI’s lawsuit appears to be that he loathes Obama, referring to him as “a joke” and “the idiot in the White House.” None of the three other recruits seem to have been harmed by Obamacare, either. “I don’t know how I got on this case,” says Brenda Levy, adding that, “I don’t like the idea of throwing people off their health insurance.” Then there’s Rose Luck, whose low income also exempts her from the law’s mandates. But she, too, fiercely loathes Obama. She posted on her Facebook page that she “wouldn’t admit he was our president,” calling him “The anti-Christ” who only won the Oval Office because “he got his Muslim people to vote for him.” This lawsuit was a fraud from the get-go — and if five supremes use it to take away the health coverage of some 10 million Americans, they’ll also be exposed as rank political hatchetmen masquerading as “justices.” Jim Hightower Syndicated columnist By taking over this case, these Republican judges have openly become partisans, thrusting the Supreme Court itself into the forefront of the GOP’s war against Obamacare — and against Obama himself.

Sales of single-family homes in January increased 21.4 percent compared to last year. Median prices held steady with only a 0.6 percent decrease. Last year, the median price was $169,000 for single-family homes, while this January, the price was $168,000. Inventory increased in January by 5.2 percent. The months supply of homes — the rate at which the current inventory could sell — dropped 8.8 percent to the lowest supply since before 2011. In January, that rate was 7.2 months. A healthy real estate market typically has an inventory of six to eight months. Townhouse and condo sales fared well in January as well, with a 15.7 percent increase in closed sales. Median prices dropped year over year by 12.2 percent. In 2014, the median price was $145,000, and in January 2015, it fell to $127,250. Unlike in single-family homes, while the inventory increased 9.5 percent for townhomes and condos, the months supply also increased. With a 15.1 percent increase, the January supply is still within a healthy range at 8.1 months.

FIND IT ALL IN THE PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD PICKLEBALL: GAME WITH ODD NAME GROWS IN POPULARITY SANDRA PIERCE LEADS YOUTH SERVICES FOR THE BAY COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY IN THIS WEEK’S PAPER COMEDY SHOW Growth brings influx of young students to Beach school PANAMA CITY BEACH — The Beach is booming. Bed tax collections and sales tax revenue 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 Beach economy. More full-time residents are moving their families over the Hathway Bridge, eating at restaurants and shopping in stores. And they’re going to Beach schools. That has resulted in overcrowding at two Beach elementary schools, with no end to the trend in sight. Steve Moss, Bay District School Board chairman, said there are now plenty of affordable condos, apartments and single-family homes on the Beach. According to Census data, in Panama City Beach the count for people ages 18 to 64 years old in 2010 was 7,988 individuals. In 2000 the count was 5,167 individuals. That was an additional 2,821 people in that decade. Moss said the board saw the growth, but enrollment accelerated faster than they thought it would. Moss drew a contrast with schools in Panama City, which he said have “plateaued.” Mainland schools such as Cedar Grove Elementary and Jinks Middle are not at a risk for tipping over the enrollment limit set by the School Board, according to 20142015 school enrollment data.
