Woman convicted of DUI manslaughter By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @ P C N Hzack PA N AMA CITY — Jurors found a woman guilty of DUI manslaughter Tuesday, although she claimed to have been drugged by a stranger before driving. Lee Creary, 51, was found guilty as charged in connection with the May 22, 2014, death of 17-year-old Mark Garrard Robertson. Robertson, of Louisiana, was struck and killed about midnight by a 1991 Chevrolet Suburban while he was walking on a sidewalk along South Thomas Drive. Creary’s defense in the trial was that she was “involuntarily intoxicated” at the time of the crash. However, Circuit Judge James Fensom told jurors to disregard that testimony when he issued their instructions. Jurors spent less than 40 minutes deliberating before they reached the guilty verdict. Creary said as she drove from a bar after not drinking alcohol, a strange feeling suddenly rushed over her. “I heard static, then it just panned down to black, and it was silent ” Creary told jurors. “Then I saw a bright light, then darkness.” Creary said she did not remember the next five hours, during which she fought with emergency crews and police. Defense attorney Walter Smith claimed Creary had been drugged with “pow-cohol,” a dehydrated form of grain alcohol. P risons facing more oversight after scandals TALLAHA SSEE (AP) — Saying they no longer trust Florida’s prison system, some legislators are pushing ahead with a sweeping proposal that would strip Gov. Rick Scott of complete control of the system while creating an independent commission that could investigate future allegations of corruption or problems. The Florida Senate appears ready to approve the far-reaching bill, but so far Republicans in control of the House appear reluctant to go that far in shaking up the agency that has come under fire for suspicious inmate deaths and poor conditions. Sen. Greg Evers, a North Florida Republican who personally visited prisons and brought in employees to testify to legislators about corruption problems in the Department of Corrections, told his fellow senators Tuesday that creating an independent commission is the “heart” of a bill that could be approved as soon as next week. Sen. Rob Bradley, a former assistant prosecutor and main proponent of creating the commission, said a long line of scandals and the arrival and departure of several agency heads had made past promises of reform “ring a bit hollow.” City weighs preference for local contractors By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh PA N AMA CITY — Local preference appears to be an easy political decision. “I’m still an advocate of buying local,” Panama City Commissioner Kenneth Brown said while agreeing with four of five commission ers at Tuesday’s Panama City Commission meeting. However, Commissioner John Kady said a local pref erence ordinance, which the commission was just starting to consider, might have the unintended consequence of costing the city more money. With outside companies afraid to rack up expenses just to get outbid, it would be easier for local companies to raise costs, Kady said. “Even with price match, it discourages outside companies from bidding,” Kady said. “Our main duty is to get the best value for the citizens of Panama City.” SEE CIT Y | A8 SEE PRIS ONS | A3 SEE DUI MANSLAUGHTER | A8 LEE CRE A R Y faces up to 15 years in prison

Page A2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, March 25, 2015 VA relaxing 40-mile rule for private health care WASHINGTON (AP) — Responding to pressure from Congress and veterans groups, the Department of Veterans Affairs is relaxing a rule that makes it difficult for some veterans in rural areas to prove they live at least 40 miles from a VA health site. The change comes amid complaints from lawmakers and advocates who say the VA’s policy has prevented thousands of veterans from taking advantage of a new law intended to allow veterans in remote areas to gain access to federally paid medical care from local doctors. The VA said it now will measure the 40-mile trip by driving miles as calculated by Google maps or other sites, rather than as the crow flies, as currently interpreted. The rule change is expected to double the number of eligible veterans. “We’ve determined that changing the distance calculation will help ensure more veterans have access to care when and where they want it,” Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald said. The change will be unveiled Tuesday at a hearing before the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. The committee’s chairman, Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and other lawmakers have criticized the VA for what they call an overly strict interpretation of a landmark law adopted last year to overhaul the VA and make it easier for vets to get private care paid for by the government. The law was passed in response to a scandal over long wait times for vets seeking health care and falsified records covering up the delays. Isakson and Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, the top Democrat on the veterans’ panel, welcomed the rule change. “Veterans deserve the highest-quality health care and should not be denied this right simply because of where they live,” Isakson and Blumenthal said in a joint statement Tuesday. “We are pleased that Secretary McDonald is responding directly to concerns voiced by the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and other members of Congress to ensure those reforms are working for all veterans.” The Associated Press WASHINGTON White House: U.S. to slow troop withdrawal from Afghanistan President Barack Obama announced Tuesday that the U.S. will slow its military withdrawal from Afghanistan, maintaining 9,800 troops in the country through the end of 2015 instead of cutting the number by about half as originally planned. “Afghanistan remains a very dangerous place,” Obama said in explaining his decision at a press conference after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s first visit to the White House since his election six months ago. Obama said the size of the U.S. troop presence for 2016 will be decided later this year. Ghani had asked Obama to slow the withdrawal because Afghan security forces are bracing for a tough spring fighting season and also are contending with Islamic State fighters looking to recruit on their soil. The original plan was to cut the U.S. force to 5,500 by the end of this year. Ghani was trying to make the case that he is a reliable partner worthy of American support, despite his fractured government and a litany of problems still rampant in Afghanistan’s military — illiteracy, drug abuse and desertions, to name a few. Ghani arrived at midmorning at the White House, where a U.S. military honor guard lined the driveway. HARRISBURG, Pa. Officer charged with killing unarmed driver lying facedown A Pennsylvania police officer was charged Tuesday with criminal homicide after investigators concluded she shot an unarmed motorist in the back as he lay facedown after a traffic stop over an expired inspection sticker. Authorities accused Hummelstown police Officer Lisa J. Mearkle of shooting 59-year-old David Kassick twice Feb. 2 without legal justification. She was released on $250,000 bail, her lawyer said. Authorities said Mearkle had attempted to pull over Kassick for expired inspection and emissions stickers before he sped away. She caught up to Kassick near his sister’s home where he had been living for a short time. He got out and ran before Mearkle incapacitated him with a stun gun, held in her left hand. Kassick was on the ground when she shot him twice in the back with the gun in her right hand, police said. Mearkle, 36, told investigators she fired because Kassick would not show her his hands and she thought he was reaching into his jacket for a gun. The offense of criminal homicide encompasses a range of charges, from misdemeanor involuntary manslaughter to felony first-degree murder. Prosecutors often narrow the charge later in the process, about the time when defendants are formally arraigned. EU R OPE I N SH OCK Plane crash kills 150 people in French Alps SEYNE-LES-ALPES, France (AP) — A Germanwings jet carrying 150 people from Barcelona to Duesseldorf slammed into a remote section of the French Alps on Tuesday, sounding like an avalanche as it scattered pulverized debris across a rocky mountain and down its steep ravines. All aboard were assumed killed. The pilots sent out no distress call and had lost radio contact with their control center, France’s aviation authority said, deepening the mystery over the A320’s mid-flight crash after a surprise 8-minute descent. “The site is a picture of horror. The grief of the families and friends is immeasurable. We must now stand together. We are united in our great grief,” German Foreign Minister FrankWalter Steinmeier said after being flown over the crash scene and briefed by French authorities. The crash left officials and families across Europe reeling in shock. Sobbing, grieving relatives at both airports were led away by airport workers and crisis counselors. One German town was rent with sorrow after losing 16 high school students coming back from an exchange program in Spain. “This is pretty much the worst thing you can imagine,” a visibly rattled Haltern Mayor Bodo Klimpel said at a hastily called press conference. As helicopters were deployed to reach the crash site, German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged reporters not to speculate on the cause. “We still don’t know much beyond the bare information on the flight, and there should be no speculation on the cause of the crash,” she said in Berlin. “All that will be investigated thoroughly.” Lufthansa Vice President Heike Birlenbach told reporters in Barcelona that for now “we say it is an accident.” In Washington, the White House said American officials were in contact with their French, Spanish and German counterparts. “There is no indication of a nexus to terrorism at this time,” said U.S. National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan. Photos of the crash site showed scattered white flecks across a stony mountain and several larger airplane body sections with windows. French officials said a helicopter crew that landed briefly in the area saw no signs of life. “Everything is pulverized. The largest pieces of debris are the size of a small car. No one can access the site from the ground,” Gilbert Sauvan, president of the general council, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, told reporters. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said a black box had been located at the crash site and “will be immediately investigated.” He did not say whether it was a data recorder or a cockpit voice recorder. Germanwings is a low-cost carrier owned by Lufthansa, Germany’s biggest airline, and serves mostly European destinations. Tuesday’s crash was its first involving passenger deaths since it began operating in 2002. The Germanwings logo, normally maroon and yellow, was blacked out on its Twitter feed. Germanwings said Flight 9525 carried 144 passengers, including two babies, and six crew members. Officials believe 67 Germans were on board, including the 16 high school students from Haltern and two opera singers.

Yet each side is bragging about far more than that. For Boehner, R-Ohio, the package announced Tuesday lets him claim a rare if modest bipartisan pact to strengthen the finances of the costly Medicare health care program for seniors. Attempts by Boehner and President Barack Obama to strike dramatic, moneysaving compromises overhauling Medicare and the nation’s other growing benefit programs have foundered in recent years, including during their 2011 “grand bargain” talks. “We have no intentions of passing any kind of a short-term doc fix,” Boehner told reporters, using Washington’s nickname for the Medicare doctors’ measure in a warning to the Senate, where the measure’s fate is uncertain. “We’ve got a good product, we’re going to pass it here on Thursday and I hope the Senate will move as quickly as possible.” The plan’s fate is less certain in the Senate. Pelosi, D-Calif., was focused more on the extra money the plan contains for health care programs for children and low-income people. “In this environment I think we made great progress,” said Pelosi, referring to two years of additional money for the Children’s Health Insurance Program and the nation’s community health centers, which serve poor families, at a time when Republicans run Congress. The measure also would make permanent programs helping low-income seniors pay Medicare deductibles and poor families retain Medicaid as they get jobs. Pelosi also had to defend the package against Democratic critics, mainly in the Senate, who complained that it doesn’t do enough for children and women and would engrave abortion restrictions into permanent law. The measure subjects community health centers to abortion curbs that Congress has enacted annually since 1979 — called the Hyde amendment — language Pelosi said is routine and will expire after two years. “I said to my colleagues this morning, I would leave Congress before I’d vote for codification of the Hyde language,” said the 27-year congressional veteran, an abortion-rights leader whose compromise with Boehner is being heavily criticized by normally staunch allies. Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, said the bill “advances a bad policy that harms women and families.” Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards said it would “permanently block some women from getting the health care their doctors say they need.” Yet the politics of the abortion issue was especially muddled. The House Pro-Choice Caucus, which co-chairwoman Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., said had 170 members, issued a statement backing the measure, saying it “does not further restrict women’s access to abortion.” House GOP and Democratic leaders both said they expected strong support from rank-and-file lawmakers, and House passage seemed likely. Powerful lobbying groups have focused their efforts on the Senate, where the American Medical Association has backed the pact while AARP, the senior’s lobby, so far has called it “not a balanced deal for older Americans.” Its prospects there are more questionable. But a strong House vote could put extra pressure on the Senate to approve the measure. REP. JOHN BOEHNE R U.S. House speaker REP. N ANCY PELOSI U.S. House minority leader PRISONS from Page A1 Florida’s prison system is one of the nation’s largest and houses 100,000 inmates. But increases in the use of force against inmates, as well as allegations about cover-ups of questionable inmate deaths have tarnished the agency. Randall Jordan-Aparo, for example, died at the Franklin Correctional Institution in 2010. He reportedly was gassed while in a confinement cell. Darren Rainey, a mentally ill prisoner, died at Dade Correctional in 2012 after being punished with a shower so hot that his skin separated from his body. Scott brought in a new department secretary, Julie Jones, to take over late last year. Jones has told legislators that millions in taxpayer dollars are needed to boost staffing and repair prisons. But Jones also pushed for a new confidentiality policy for internal investigators responsible for rooting out corruption. The Senate bill (SB 7020) would remove the governor’s sole power to appoint the department secretary and instead have the agency chief report to Scott and the three other elected officials who make up the state Cabinet. The new, nine-member commission would be allowed to conduct investigations, including being able to take sworn testimony and subpoena witnesses.

Page A6 | The News Herald | Wednesday, March 25, 2015 Viewpoints South Florida’s Amendment 1 fight T he first shots of the war over Amendment 1 have been fired, but if you didn’t hear anything, that might be because the battle is taking place in South Florida and is mostly concerned with the Everglades. Florida’s House passed water policy legislation earlier this month. The Senate is now working on its own version of the legislation, and while the two versions were — as of this writing — quite different, we can expect the Republicancontrolled government will work out a compromise eventually. It’s not surprising (though perhaps a little disappointing) that Tallahassee’s focus is on the Everglades. That is a multiyear, billion-dollar fracas between entrenched business interests and environmentalists over the fate of South Florida’s drinking water and the largest wetland ecosystem in North America. An argument like that inevitably will suck all the air out of the room. However, while South Florida is rightly concerned about that issue, Northwest Florida has ongoing environmental issues that must be addressed, including beach renourishment, the fate of Apalachicola Bay, a second source of drinking water in Bay County and the flow of freshwater from Atlanta to Florida. And, while the water policy law is certainly not the last or only place to address these issues, it does seem to show where the real concerns of Florida’s Legislature reside. That seems to us to be a bad sign, especially given how much money for environmental projects is now at stake thanks to the passage of Amendment 1. Florida’s voters approved changing the state’s constitution in November and forcing the Legislature to commit about $648 million on environmental projects in fiscal 2015-16. After 20 years, the annual sum could be $1.26 billion. Most of the fighting on that will be done during the annual budget process and will center on how much land should be purchased with these funds. As we said when we argued against Amendment 1 last year, Florida’s government owns enough land — somewhere close to 30 percent of all the land in the state is owned by the state. Also, we believe the Legislature’s fiscal hands should not be tied in this manner. By forcing them to commit a certain amount of money each year to environmental projects, we also are forcing them to ignore other worthy issues that might have been resolved or at least improved with taxpayer funds. For instance, last year, this state’s leaders worked hard on changes to Florida’s Department of Children and Families and included $18 million for the state to hire and train 270 additional employees who would reduce caseloads. In robust budget years, these kinds of decisions are easy, but when things get tight, lawmakers will be forced to decide what program is vital this year and what can wait. Now, in at least one spending category, they no longer have the option to wait. Thankfully, while environmentalists are urging the state to buy even more land, the language of the amendment gives the Legislature enough leeway to do other important things for the environment besides real estate deals. Those include restoring, improving and managing wetlands and forests, and protecting our streams, shores, beaches and drinking water sources. Though some claim that’s a bait and switch, we don’t believe the voters honestly expected the Legislature to buy land with every cent of the money that comes in. Instead, what they expected was the government would use the money for projects and (some) land acquisitions that would have a positive impact on the environment. Presuming our reasoning and what appears to be the plain language of the law pass muster in the statehouse and the courthouse, then the next step will be to ensure North Florida isn’t forgotten when the projects are approved in Tallahassee. So, if you care about Apalachicola oysters, white sandy beaches and drinking water, now might be a good time to contact your representatives. If you wait until the battle over the Everglades is over, it might be too late. J ulian Castro is a smiling bundle of energy whose past includes being mayor of San Antonio and whose future may include a spot on a national Democratic ticket — say, as a nicely balanced running mate for a presidential nominee who is a white female from New York. Right now, though, he is secretary of Housing and Urban Development, or what he calls “the Department of Opportunity.” As that label suggests, Castro is a staunch believer in the value of government involvement in the housing market. He came to Chicago recently to tout the many ways in which Washington can allegedly be a positive force on behalf of affordable housing and thriving communities. Among Castro’s priorities is the “affordable housing crisis.” He laments that 7.7 million low-income Americans who get no government help either spend more than half their income on rent or occupy substandard housing. One of his curatives is a federal program that “allows public housing agencies to leverage public and private debt and equity in order to reinvest in the public housing stock.” Maybe that will do some good. But when it comes to fostering a larger supply of less expensive housing, as Ronald Reagan would have put it, government is not the solution. Government is the problem. This is especially true at the local level. One reason red states attract so many migrants from blue states is that they have an abundant supply of relatively inexpensive residential buildings. You can get a lot more house for your money in Houston or Phoenix than in San Francisco or Boston. A big reason is that it’s a lot easier to construct homes and subdivisions in states that engage in less regulation of development — which, being less enamored of regulation, tend to vote Republican. This pattern is not a matter of speculation. Economist Jed Kolko sorted dozens of cities by how they voted for president in 2012 and found that “none of the 10 reddest markets had a median asking price per square foot above $130 in Sept. 2014. But nine of the bluest markets did.” The peculiarity is not hard to explain. Residents of liberal places, almost by definition, are more inclined to support tight curbs on development. Last year, San Franciscans approved a ballot measure requiring voter approval of any new building on a 7-mile stretch of waterfront if it exceeds current (and generally low) height limits — which is a perfect way to block an expansion of residential housing in a large chunk of the city. They confirmed the observation of Matt Yglesias, who wrote in Slate in 2013 that because the city lacks vacant land, “you either build up or you just don’t build. And the preference, apparently, is to not build.” That’s why San Francisco has the highest housing costs in America. New York is almost as bad, and for similar reasons. But they are hardly unique. Research by economists Edward Glaeser of Harvard and Joseph Gyourko of the University of Pennsylvania indicated that “homes are expensive in highcost areas primarily because of government regulation” that imposes “artificial limits on construction.” Not that big cities teeming with Democrats are the only sinners. In many suburbs in red states, Gyourko told me, zoning rules make it easy to build singlefamily detached houses on small lots. What’s not easy is to put up townhouses and apartment buildings — whose construction costs, on a per-dwelling basis, are much lower. Blocking high-density units serves, deliberately or not, to keep out lower-income people by making these areas unaffordable. The feds also are partly to blame. The biggest federal housing “program” is the tax deductibility of mortgage interest, which effectively has the perverse effect of pushing up home prices in the places that are most expensive already. Ending that subsidy would lower real estate costs in affluent cities, to the advantage of those who have been squeezed out. The chronic shortage of inexpensive housing is taken by Castro and other liberals to mean that government bodies have to do more. It’s really a blaring signal for them to get out of the way.

Box 1940, Panama City, FL 32402; or email to 49 FORUM E arlier this week, the Florida Senate Criminal Justice Committee voted 5-0 to pass Senate Bill 664, a bill that would require, in capital-case penaltyphase proceedings, that a jury vote unanimously, rather than by a simple majority, to recommend sentences of death. Sen. Thad Altman, R-Viera, filed this bill, as he has done during the past several legislative sessions. This is the first time the bill received a vote. Altman’s effort responds to State v. Steele, a state Supreme Court opinion that urges the Legislature to revisit the deathpenalty statute to address a significant anomaly in the law. The state Supreme Court noted that Florida is an outlier — the only state to allow penalty-phase juries both to recommend death sentences and to find the presence of aggravating circumstances surrounding a capital crime (a legal threshold for imposing death sentences) by a simple majority, e.g. 7-5. Florida law requires juries to vote unanimously to convict a defendant at trial; and while judges are the final sentencing authorities, they must place great weight upon juries’ penalty-phase sentencing recommendations (either death or life in prison without the possibility of parole). Some detractors say if Florida law had required unanimous recommendations when serial killers like Ted Bundy and Aileen Wuornos were sentenced, they would have avoided death sentences because the juries in their cases recommended death by less than unanimous votes. Not necessarily. Research by Scott Sundby from the University of Miami School of Law indicates that when unanimity is required, more rigorous analysis results and the nature of jury deliberations changes — conceivably achieving unanimity, especially when nine or more jurors favor a sentence of death (the situation involving Bundy and Wuornos). The backdrop is compelling. More death sentences reportedly were imposed in Florida recently than in any other state; more executions have been carried out during the administration of Gov. Rick Scott than during the administrations of any of his contemporaries within a comparable time frame; and according to the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, D.C., more exonerations have occurred in Florida than in any other state since 1973. The Senate’s Bill Analysis and Fiscal Impact Statement notes that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to review Hurst v. Florida last week, a capital case in which the jury recommended a sentence of death by a vote of 7-5. The court will consider “whether Florida’s death sentencing scheme violates the Sixth or Eighth Amendments in light of that court’s decision in Ring v. Arizona, 536 U.S. 584 (2002).” The Ring decision required that juries, not judges alone, must make the crucial factual determinations that would subject a convicted murderer to the death penalty. The Florida Supreme Court has not applied Ring to Florida’s nonunanimous jury recommendations. Interestingly, during its midyear meeting in Houston last month, the American Bar Association passed a resolution urging all states to require unanimity in this context. If the Legislature ultimately passes — and Scott signs — Altman’s bill, Florida would more favorably align with virtually every other capital-punishment state in the U.S. All require some form of unanimity. It also would avoid the costs to taxpayers associated with convening a special legislative session, if required, to remedy any related defect the U.S. Supreme Court might find in Florida’s capital-case sentencing scheme. Beyond the unanimous jury legislation, The Florida Bar Board of Governors recently renewed its support for a comprehensive review of Florida’s entire deathpenalty process by all branches of government. In 2006, the ABA Florida Death Penalty Assessment Team issued a report identifying serious concerns regarding the fairness, accuracy and impartiality of Florida’s deathpenalty process. It didn’t take a position on capital punishment; nor, for various reasons, did it address method of execution. Irrespective of whether one supports or opposes capital punishment, a comprehensive review by state officials arguably is long overdue.

A pizza kitchen on wheels, the Love Kitchen travels to locations across the U.S. and Canada to provide food to the hungry and homeless as well as disaster survivors. The effort is funded by donations from local Little Caesars franchise owners and company regional offices, with an estimated 50,000 volunteers supporting the program over the years. “The Love Kitchen was created to provide quality meals for people who need them,” said Little Caesars franchisee Joe Giamportone. “As a member of the area business community, it’s important for us to support people when they need it and help make the community stronger.

It is tripling the size of its social media team to 60 and could add more. That’s just a tiny percentage of the thousands of customer service people it has. But answering people faster on Twitter and Facebook is part of an overall push to improve customer service. The country’s biggest cable provider is promoting its customer service efforts as regulators weigh whether to allow Comcast to buy the No. 2 cable company, Time Warner Cable, in a $45 billion deal that would create an Internet and cable giant. The combined company would serve almost 30 percent of cable TV subscribers and more than half of high-speed Internet subscribers. That’s raised an outcry from consumer advocates who say the combined company would have too much control over the country’s Internet access. And the company’s reputation for treating customers badly — calling them names, making it difficult to cancel service, requiring multiple visits, calls and emails to fix problems, tacking on fees, passing customers from call center employee to employee — hasn’t helped it sell the deal to the public. Comcast’s spending on customer service has increased in the past few years, rising about 5 percent in both 2013 and 2014, to $2.21 billion last year. Comcast Corp., which is based in Philadelphia, announced its social media push on Monday. It aims to answer complaints on Facebook, Twitter and possibly other forums in 30 minutes. It now often takes far longer than that — more than a week for many recent answers to customer complaints with its @ComcastCares service account. DirecTV, a satellite TV competitor, and other big cable companies Charter and Time Warner Cable have recent replies on Twitter that come within a day or just hours of a complaint. Calling Saul, Census forms and Alan Jackson “the people go ‘round but they seldom think ‘bout the little man that built this town Before the big money shut ‘em down.” — “Little Man” as performed by Alan Jackson Are you watching Bob Odenkirk in “Better Call Saul”? Maybe you remember Saul from “Breaking Bad.” Saul is Jimmy McGill, a ham and eggs lawyer attempting to grind out a living in Albuquerque, N.M. McGill’s office (and domicile) is a tiny, one-room cubbyhole adjoining a nail parlor. Desperate for business, McGill attempts to improve his community profile by staging a rescue operation on a billboard platform. While shooting a television commercial, McGill “saves” a laborer from falling a hundred feet to certain death, and the entire episode is recorded on video and becomes frontpage news. When he returns to his office, McGill has seven messages from potential new clients who were impressed by his bravery. McGill also serves as an emcee for bingo games in a retirement community to bolster his elder care practice. No firm, legal or otherwise, can demonstrate its professional skills and grow its clientele until it gets traffic in the door. All types of businesses battle competitors and struggle for survival daily in a heated horse race that, except for marketing campaigns, remains largely hidden from the general public. And most fail. A recent Forbes article authored by Eric Wagner states that “eight out of ten entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months.” In some industries, the failure rate is even higher. Wagner cites a host of reasons. Many businesses run out of cash. Some fall out of touch with their customers. Others fail to develop proper business models. But frequently businesses are simply squeezed out of the marketplace. For every college-aged wonder who develops a new app or establishes a successful tech company, there are thousands of small start-ups that fail. Neighbors and friends lose their discretionary income and sometimes their life savings attempting to breathe life into a commercial enterprise. Whenever we can lift the burden of undue taxation or time-consuming paperwork off the back of the American businessman, we should do it. The tangible property tax requires a business to pay taxes annually on equipment and furniture that may have been purchased years ago. And it sometimes can take a week to complete a required Census Bureau form. What struggling entrepreneur has time for that? Small business has been the backbone of America for so long that we assume it will always withstand the competition from larger companies. Unfortunately, it isn’t so. Minus his nefarious activities, we all sympathize with Saul. He’s the epitome of the small businessman working without a net in a world controlled by large corporations. Margaret R.

McDowell Arbor Outlook SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google has hired Morgan Stanley’s chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, as its CFO, at a time when Silicon Valley is under fire for hiring and promoting too few women. The Internet search leader’s CFO of the past seven years, Patrick Pichette, announced earlier this month that he was retiring so he could travel around the world with his wife. Porat, 58, will become Google’s highestranking female executive when she starts her new job on May 26. Google and other Silicon Valley heavyweights, including Apple and Facebook, are trying to add more women to their payrolls. The push began during the past 10 months after the companies released data revealing that women only filled 15 to 20 percent of the tech jobs, which tend to pay the most. The terms of Porat’s contract at Google weren’t immediately disclosed. She received compensation valued at $10.1 million from Morgan Stanley in 2013. Pichette received compensation valued at $5.2 million in the same year. Google’s shares rose $12.25 to $577.62 in Tuesday’s afternoon trading. The stock has been lagging for the past 15 months, partly because of investors’ frustration with Google’s history of spending heavily on far-flung projects, such as driverless cars and Internet-connected glasses, that might take years to pay off.

The recalled items include vegetable lasagna, tofu vegetable lasagna, garden vegetable lasagna, tofu scramble, enchilada verde meal, spinach pizza, brown rice and vegetables owl, stuffed pasta shells bowl, gluten-free tofu scramble and the breakfast wrap. Rochester-based Wegmans Food Markets is recalling about 12,540 packages of Wegmans organic spinach because of possible contamination with listeria. The 12-ounce product was sold in the frozen food department of the company’s 85 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts between Jan. 27 and March 21. This product is supplied to Wegmans by Twin City Foods in Stanwood, Wash. On Monday, Carmel Food Group issued a voluntary recall of certain Rising Moon Organics frozen ravioli items over the same concern. Tuesday, Blue Bell expanded the recall of some ice cream products to include 3-ounce cups of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream that have tab lids because of possible exposure to the listeria bacteria.


“She was involuntarily intoxicated to the point that she was legally insane,” Smith said. An official toxicology report listed Crea ry’s blood-alcohol content at 0.258, based on a blood sample taken about an hour after the crash. A second sample taken about three hours after the crash was 0.189 percent. The legal limit in Florida is 0.08 percent. However, Fensom ruled “involuntary intoxication” was not a defense in the case. Prosecutor Bob Sombathy presented jurors with a different cause for Creary’s lack of memory. “There was no evidence somebody spiked her drink with some mystery powder,” Sombathy said. “There was another substance.” During the trial, several EMS and police testified to smelling alcohol on Creary following the wreck. One blood test was returned with positive results indicating she also had used methamphetamine within 24 hours of the wreck. The night he was killed, Robertson was returning to his room at the Boardwalk Beach Resort at 9450 S. Thomas Drive. The honors student graduated from high school days earlier and had traveled to Florida on a senior trip. He was drinking a milkshake when Creary’s eastbound SUV veered onto the sidewalk and hit him near Alvin’s Island Department Store. The Suburban continued on until it hit a palm tree. Creary, who had left Pineapple Willy’s at 9875 S. Thomas Drive, struck a curb, a road sign and a light post before she hit Robertson and dragged him beneath the Suburban. He became dislodged from the undercarriage only when Creary struck another curb before she crashed into the palm tree. Witnesses told jurors the SUV seemed to be going about 50 mph in a 35 mph zone. Creary suffered a broken arm and a head wound in the crash. When she arrived at a hospital, she was cursing, spitting and swinging punches at medical staff. Many of them testified against her. Robertson’s family declined to comment after the verdict. “All they want is justice,” Sombathy said. Robertson “was a bright kid, he’d just graduated high school and had plans to go to LSU,” Sombathy said. “Instead, his family had to come from Louisiana to identify his body.” Creary’s sentencing is scheduled for May 11. She faces up to 15 years in prison.

Local contractors such as Matt Marshall and James Finch, who is a member of the Bay County Contractors Association, supported the ordinance, saying that it creates a fair playing field. Surrounding areas such as Gulf County have local preference at 7 percent of the low bid, Marshall said. Finch added that con tractors from Alabama have the advantage of a lower sales tax to save on materials. The 5 percent figure matches Bay County’s local preference ordinance, although the county ordinance also includes goods and services and the Panama City Commission wants to limit it just to construction contracts. City Manager Jeff Brown said the law would not apply to engineering, architecture or other consulting services. Florida’s Consultants’ Competitive Nego tiation Act “prohibits cities from considering price for engineering and architecture,” Brown said. “It’s strictly by qualifications.” Part of Kady’s argument is that local preference is a moot point for Panama City. Brown said 70 to 80 percent of the city’s construction projects now go to local companies. “This is a feel-good political thing that has no effect on businesses except to raise prices,” Kady said. The commission asked city attorney Nevin Zimmerman to answer whether the city can have a preference for “local” contractors outside of the city limits and then bring the ordinance back for a first reading April 14. Other business In other business Tuesday, the commission: Tabled decisions on a natural gas station and land development regulations. Brown said the city will consider other locations for the natural gas station, and there are a few tweaks for the regulations. Had a first reading of an ordinance to allow dogs for outdoor dining. Downtown restaurants such as Trigo Deli and Millies Caf would be allowed to have dogs in out door eating areas as long as they meet state law: have hand sanitizer at each table and keep an outdoor kit to clean dog waste. Approved the final plat for phase 1A for the SweetBay development on the old airport property. Will proceed with an ordinance to end the property tax exemption for the Boyd Brothers property. Ended the six-month trial period for Brown and installed him as the permanent city manager. Brown’s annual salary of $132,600 will not change.

The places I’ve called home had few (or no) Indian restaurants. Coupled with a feeling that actually making Indian food was beyond me, that particular cuisine has been lost to me. Not anymore! The folks at Kitchen Curry Master were kind enough to send us one of their kits to review. This weekend, I managed to: A) Not burn down my kitchen (I came close after I forgot a pot drizzled with oil on the stove top). B) Cook three yummy dishes using the kit. The Gear The Kitchen Curry Master kit comes with spices, a spice box and a cookbook. The spice collection comes with 3 ounces each of garam masala, chili powder, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, and ground cumin and coriander. It also contains 5 ounces each of Fenugreek seeds, mustard seeds and a set of mixed spices that include cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, peppercorns and green cardamom. All of the spices smelled fresh. To me, the spice collection alone seems like a good deal. Spices tend to be pricy, and the collection includes specialty spices that may be hard to find. The round, brushed steel spice box comes with eight internal spice pots to hold the spices. My only problem with the box is that the individual spice pots don’t have their own tops — only the box itself does. As long as you make sure the box stays horizontal, the loose spices shouldn’t spill. The recipes The kit comes with a beautiful cookbook with more than 25 recipes. I liked that each of the main recipes had suggestions for side items. Each spice is described in detail in the book, and there’s a handy fold-out spice guide in the back.

The Spicy Rice was — as its name implies — a bit spicy, but not as much as some of our other dishes. Chicken CurryPrep time: 25 minutes. Cook time: 1 hour Things you need: 2 lbs boneless chicken breast 2 medium onions 2 tablespoons tomato paste 4 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons fresh chopped ginger 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup water 1 cups of crushed canned tomatoes 1 handful fresh cilantro 1 tablespoon fresh garlic From the spice box: 6 cloves 6 cardamoms 2 star anise 2 cinnamon sticks 3 tablespoons ground cumin & coriander 1 teaspoon garam masala teaspoon turmeric powder 1 teaspoon chili powder* *Note: if you prefer a hotter spice level increase the amount of chili powder by teaspoon increments to suit your taste. Be cautious! Essential preparation: Dice the chicken into approximately 1 inch pieces Peel and dice the onions into inch squares Peel and chop the ginger as finely as possible Peel and chop the garlic as finely as possible Lightly chop the cilantro Prepare everything else from the Things You Need section so that all ingredients are at hand and you are ready to cook Cooking Guide: Heat the oil in the pan so it’s hot, then add the cloves, cardamom, star anise and cinnamon sticks. Let it sizzle for 1 minute. Add the onions and stir occasionally on a medium heat for 20 minutes or until the onions turn brown. Add the tomato paste, ginger, garlic, crushed canned tomatoes, salt, water, garam masala, turmeric powder, chili powder and ground cumin & coriander. Stir it and let it simmer for 10 minutes on a low heat with the lid on. Check and stir frequently. Add the chicken, stir it and then cook for another 30 minutes on a low heat with the lid on. Take off the heat and stir in the chopped cilantro. Serve. Suggested serving accompaniments include rice, quinoa or cous cous and non gluten free options such as naan or pita bread.

Page B2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, March 25, 2015 them, however. The photos in the fold-out guide were a different shade then the actual spices. Not good when several of the spices look a bit alike. I made spicy rice, broccoli and onion curry and chicken curry. The directions were fairly easy, but — and I can not stress this enough — read ahead AND prepare your spices before starting to cook. Identifying and measuring out a number of spices (five spices for the rice, four for the broccoli and onion, and eight for the chicken curry) takes time. I ended up reading ahead and combining my spices with the ingredients needed in each step. Also, most of the recipes take time to prep and cook: 25 minutes of prep for the broccoli followed by 35 minutes of cooking. The chicken curry took 25 minutes of prep and an hour to cook. The spicy rice recipe threw me off in particular, because I missed that the rice itself had to be cooked ahead of time, bumping the 10 minute listed prep time up by 20 minutes. The results Everything was delicious and tasted authentic. I will definitely be using my Kitchen Curry Master in the future — but most likely for special occasions. After a long workday, I want something simple and quick. The amount of prep work, including corralling the spices, may be a bit much to take on otherwise. If you want to add Indian cuisine onto your menu, however, the kit is a great way to get started. With some prep work, the recipes are fairly easy to follow and the results are wonderful. The Chicken Curry was time consuming, but it was my favorite dish in the end.

Think small, top chefs say. As in ancho vies and sardines. That’s the message from 20 of the world’s leading chefs, who gathered in northeastern Spain recently to draw attention to what they hope is a simple solution to the threat facing many of the larger fish species that overfishing has pushed to near collapse. Their take: If more people ate more little fish — anchovies, sardines, her ring and mackerel, for example — both human diets and seafood populations would improve. Ferran Adria, of Spain’s now closed elBulli restaurant, joined with Grant Achatz of Chicago’s Alinea, Massimo Bottura of Italy’s Osteria Francescana and more than a dozen other chefs for a sum mit with the U.S.-based ocean con servation group Oceana to discuss leveraging their star power to get these fish not just onto their own menus — which only a lucky few will ever eat from — but into res taurants and homes worldwide. “It’s the right moment and the right ingredient,” said Gaston Acurio, the co-owner and chef of Peru’s famed Astrid y Gaston res taurant. “One of the best markets in the world is health and wellness, and anchovies and small fish are health and this is wellness that is good for society.” Driving the chefs’ involvement is the campaign by Oceana aimed at convincing consumers to embrace eating more small oily fish. Known as “forage fish,” they’re part of the food chain that feeds larger fish, such as tuna or swordfish, both of which are threatened. The smaller fish are abundant enough to feed both the larger predators as well as plenty of people, says Oceana chief scientist Michael Hirshfield. But though anchovies, sar dines and similar small fish are treated as delicacies in much of the Mediterranean, in the rest of the world they often end up as feed for farmed salmon, chicken and pigs. “They feed 3 pounds of fish to make 1 pound of salmon. That’s not a great way to feed a planet,” said Andy Sharpless, Oceana’s CEO and author of “The Perfect Protein.” “We can feed tens of mil lions more people if we simply eat anchovies and other forage fish directly rather than in form of a farmed salmon or other animals raised on fish meal and fish oil.” Their point isn’t to criticize the farmed seafood industry, the chefs said. Rather, they want to lead by example. They agreed to serve small oily fish at their restaurants as much as they as they can, to train younger chefs that the fish are as good for the planet as for the plate, and to develop recipes that make it easy for the average con sumer to prepare them at home. “We need to take advantage of species that there are in great abundance,” Acurio said. “We as chefs with the magic and the pas sion and the talent we have can provoke and convince people to consume them and influence the market. As chefs we can create a consciousness to inspire many other cooks.” “ It’s the right moment and the right ingredient. One of the best markets in the world is health and wellness, and anchovies and small fish are health and this is wellness that is good for society.” Gaston Acurio, co-owner and chef, Astrid y Gaston restaurant in Peru “ They feed 3 pounds of fish to make 1 pound of salmon. That’s not a great way to feed a planet.

Officers arrived at the Oasis Lounge at 1103 W. 15th St. about 9:50 p.m. Sunday to find 52-year-old Dave MacAdams seated on a bar stool and bleeding profusely from a gash over his right eye and a busted lip and ear, police reported. When asked what happened, MacAdams told officers, “Some one beat the (expletive) out of me,” according to PCPD reports. Police were called to the bar for a report of 41-yearold bartender Eric Johnson “having to take down a belligerent customer,” police reported. Johnson told officers MacAdams had his shirt off and refused to put it back on. Johnson said MacAdams took a swing at him, and he swung back and knocked MacAdams into a pool table, police reported. “The pool table did all that to him,” Johnson told police. Several co-workers in the bar corroborated Johnson’s story, police said, but none would provide a sworn statement. MacAdams told police the bar tender was the aggressor. One wit ness also told police the events did not happen as Johnson described, and he signed a statement for authorities. MacAdams was taken to a local hospital to be treated. Police had not filed charges as of Tuesday, but an investigation was ongoing. Where Paradise lay AND WHAT LIES AHEAD A ND RE W W A R DLOW | The News Herald The Inn Paradise at 15727 Front Beach Road is demolished in Panama City Beach on Monday. A high-rise condo could replace it. Developers plan high-rise in place of demolished Inn Paradise hotel By JOHN H E ND ER SON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn PANAMA CITY B E ACH — A 37-year-old, two-story condo minium complex on Front Beach Road that city officials repeatedly have complained about not being up to code has been demolished. The new owners of the property that was the Inn Par adise hotel have not applied to build another structure at 15727 Front Beach Road. Brad Berman, the managing member of the Atlanta-based Scenic Highway Partners that recently bought the property, said they haven’t solidified their plans. However, he said they most likely will develop a high-rise con dominium similar in size to the 22-story Aqua Resort directly to the east. “As far as how high the building Survey: Many facing homelessness for first time News Herald staff report PANAMA CITY — More than 40 per cent of homeless adults in Panama City were facing homelessness for the first time, according to a 2014 survey. Nationally, the rate was slightly lower. According to the Association of Gospel Rescue Mission’s survey of 104 home less people assisted by the Panama City Rescue Mission — 63 men and 41 women — about 43 percent reported to be home less for the first time. The survey also showed 18 percent of those surveyed were chronically homeless (homeless three or more times before), 50 percent were between ages 46 and 65, 12 percent were reported to be women with children and 13 percent were vet erans — down 1 percent from the previ ous year. Thurman Chambers, executive director of the Panama City Rescue Mission, viewed the results with mixed emotions. “While we are encouraged that the percentage of homeless veterans has decreased in our area and nationwide, this survey speaks to the local needs of the hurting, homeless and hungry individuals and the work that the Rescue Mission — along with the rest of the community — has ahead of it,” he said.

HOMELESSNESS from Page B3 Legislature rolls out proposed tax cuts TALLAHASSEE (AP) — With a budget stalemate still possible, the Republican-controlled Florida House on Tuesday rolled out a hefty package of tax cuts and tax breaks that it wants to push through during this year’s session. House leaders are pitching almost $700 mil lion in tax cuts, including a substantial cut in the taxes charged on cellphones and cable television, a threeday back to school sales tax holiday, and exempt ing college textbooks from sales taxes. “We want to send that money back to the kitchen tables all across this great state, because the decisions made at the kitchen table about how to spend money are always better than the decisions made by politicians far away,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Fort Walton Beach Repub lican and main sponsor of the tax package. The House package includes more than a dozen tax breaks, ranging from sparing school booster groups from paying taxes for concessions to creating a sales tax holiday for small businesses in late November. It also includes tax breaks being sought by some of the state’s business interest groups, including a slight reduc tion in the tax now charged on commercial leases. The biggest part of the $690 million package is a reduction in the taxes now charged on cell phones and cable television. The proposed cut would save the aver age Floridian about $40 a year and would divert almost $500 mil lion out of the state’s main budget account. A cut in the tax known officially as the “communication services tax” is one of this year’s top priori ties for Gov. Rick Scott. Scott himself rolled out a $673 million tax cut package, but House leaders aren’t embracing all of the changes he is seeking. Scott wanted another small cut in the state’s corporate income tax — which was once a key part of his “7-7-7” plan to turn around the state’s economy — but House lead ers did not include it in their pack age. Gaetz said House members decided instead to offer tax breaks in targeted business areas. While the House rolled out its tax package with fanfare, Senate Republicans have remained rel atively mum on what taxes they would support cutting this year. Senate President Andy Gar diner said his chamber wants to resolve other budget items before deciding on a tax cut package. Senate Republicans worry that Florida will lose more than $1 bil lion in federal aid now being used to help hospitals treat the poor and uninsured. The Senate has crafted a replacement program but the House has not included the extra money in its budget proposal. Right now, the House and Senate proposed budgets differ by more than $4 billion in spending. “I don’t think we’re anywhere near even talking about what the number is,” Gardiner said Tues day. “There’s still a lot of things that have to be resolved before you can get to that point.” REP. MATT GAETZ RFort Walton Beach According to an arrest affidavit, the girl contacted the three boys via text message to ask that they pick her up and take her to their condo, according to the affidavit. The girl and the three boys engaged in sex acts in a bedroom, the affidavit states. After conferring with the State Attorney’s Office, the girl was charged with lewd and lascivious conduct, police said. Capt. Robert Clarkson said the State Attorney’s Office presented the girl’s arrest as one legal option in the incident. “At the persistence of the victim’s parents and rec ommendation of the State Attorney’s Office, there was probable cause to charge all persons involved in this incident,” police said in a news release. Clarkson said the girl’s parents asked officers not to arrest her. Coleman was booked into the Bay County Jail, and Moore and Winston were turned over to the state Depart ment of Juvenile Justice. The girl was released to her parents. TEENS from Page B3 would be and how many units would be built, it is probably too early to say,” he said. Scenic Highway Partners closed on the property six weeks ago. It involved three real estate transactions totaling more than $3.7 million, Berman said. The company has developed proj ects such as Grand Dunes in the Des tin area. “It was a very odd transaction,” Berman said. “We had 42 separate closings with the condo owners, and then a separate closing with the land owner and then a closing with the sublease owners.” The new condominium might not be built until 2018 because of the time it takes to get necessary approvals, Berman said. With the city’s approval, the prop erty owner could build a new 250-foot building like Aqua next door, Panama City Beach Planning Director Mel Leonard said. “They could (go that high) if they got incentives, but they have to go before the Planning Board and (City) Council to do that,” Leonard said. He said he’s not aware of the prop erty owner having nearby property for parking, so the first few floors of the building likely would have to accom modate that. Leonard said the Inn Paradise building was in terrible shape. “It was one of the worst buildings that was open on the beach,” he said. Leonard said it was difficult to get the former property owner to comply with city codes. “It was like pulling teeth to get them to get (the repair work) all done,” Leonard said. “They did get it done. It was just enough to be skirting by for a while.” Kenneth Thorndyke, the building official for Panama City Beach, said he is pleased the old building was torn down. “It wasn’t that it was ready to col lapse, but there were just issues that had to be corrected,” he said. “We had them repair the (concrete) spall ing. The whole electric service was repaired several years ago. Recently, they just put a brand new roof sys tem on that, with trusses and a metal roof.” Since 2008, the property owner had been doing work to bring the building up to code. Thorndyke said there were times when officials felt the build ing might have posed a threat to its occupants. “Over the course of time there was some stucco (deterioration) and actually spalling of the concrete. It was kind of coming down around the owners,” Thorndyke said. “We went out there to do an inspection one time and there was a guy sitting in a plastic chair having a cigarette and a beer, and there was a big old chunk of concrete (hanging down). I told him it was going to fall someday. He’s like, ‘I’m just renting it.’ He wasn’t too worried.” PARADISE from Page B3 House panel approves school choice bill The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — A wide-ranging bill that would allow parents more freedom to choose where their children go to school was overwhelmingly approved Tuesday by a House panel, even as some critics and educators worried the legislation is moving too quickly. The measure (HB 1145) —sponsored by Rep. Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor —was approved by the House K-12 Subcommittee in an 11-2 vote, with two Democrats joining the panel’s nine Republicans in voting for the bill. It would allow parents to transfer their students to any school in the state that had not reached 90 percent of its capacity, regardless of county lines. It also would require districts to set up a process for parents to request that their children be removed from teachers’ classes. Supporters have touted the legislation as the logical extension of the state’s school-choice reform movement, while opponents have raised questions about whether the process could be orderly. Even speakers who were not overtly opposed to the bill raised questions about whether the legislation is too ambitious. Vern Pickup-Crawford, a lobbyist for Palm Beach County schools, said the July 1 effective date of the legis lation could force school districts to adjust quickly to the new landscape. “To try to have this implemented this next school year is something resembling organized chaos,” he said. The issue is compounded, critics say, by the lack of hard information on how many parents might take advantage of the chance to place their children in virtu ally any nearby school. “The problem to me is, we really have no idea whether this is going to be a few students, a lot of students or a flood of students,” said Rep. Joe Geller of Aventura, the panel’s top Democrat and one of the two votes against the bill. Geller also raised questions about a provision that would have the state funding for each child “follow” that student if a transfer is made. He suggested that provision could harm districts with smaller budgets. “They’re having a hard time keeping up as it is,” Geller said. “And I understand when we say it’s per pupil, but the fact is, there is some economy of scale there and when you start to lose that funding, I think it drags down the entire district.” That drew a response from Rep. Manny Diaz Jr., R-Hialeah. “There should be no hesitation in allowing a student who has not been provided the right opportunity in what ever arbitrary, designated county they live in to be able to cross that line and get a better opportunity,” he said. “I will tell you that if that school district and that school that that student is supposed to be zoned for is doing their job and providing them the best opportunity, the parent’s not going to be looking for another one.”




LOCA L & STATE Page B6 | The News Herald | Wednesday, March 25, 2015 The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — After a debate that conjured memories of Hurricane Katrina, the Florida Senate on Tuesday overwhelm ingly passed a bill that could lead to more people carrying concealed weap ons when fleeing natural disasters. The bill (SB 290), spon sored by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, would allow people to carry guns without concealedweapons licenses for 48 hours during mandatory emergency evacuations. The bill would only apply to people who legally own guns. Brandes said people ordinarily can face thirddegree felony charges for carrying concealed weap ons without licenses. He said the bill would allow people to take fire arms, along with other valuables, when they are forced to leave home because of hurricanes or other disasters. “This is about this incredibly rare instance, this incredibly tailored instance, where people are fleeing for their lives,” he said. But some Democratic lawmakers blasted the proposal, saying it would introduce more guns into the chaos and emotions of a mandatory evacuation. Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, said supporters had not pre sented any evidence of why the bill is needed. “I need to know why we need to change the law,” Sachs said. Senators voted 29-10 to approve the bill, which has the backing of the influential National Rifle Association. The House version (HB 493), filed by Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R-Fort Myers, has moved through committees and is ready to go to the full House. A similar bill died last year in the Senate, amid concerns by the Florida Sheriffs Association and some Republican and Democratic senators. But Brandes made changes that addressed the concerns, such as add ing the 48-hour time period for carrying weapons. The 48 hours could be extended by the governor. The specter of Hurri cane Katrina, the storm that devastated the New Orleans area in 2005, was raised by senators on both sides of the debate Tuesday. Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, pointed to Katrina and its cha otic aftermath in arguing against the bill. “In Katrina, we saw people living in close quar ters with their families,” she said. “So why in the world would we want to increase anxiety by having a lot of guns next to children and families?” But bill supporter Joseph Abruzzo, D-Boyn ton Beach, emphasized that the bill only applies to lawful gun owners and that weapons would have to remain concealed. “At the end of the day, in Katrina there (was) loot ing beyond explanation,” said Abruzzo, one of four Democrats who backed the bill. “Almost any house that was able to get ransacked was. And to say people have to leave guns in their home under those condi tions is not safe.” Pl um De li gh tf ul To da y’ s Tr ea su re s, To mo rr ow ’s He ir lo om s 20 % OF F se le ct in -s to ck So rr el li je we lr y FR EE My st er y Sw ee t Bo x wi th So rr el li pu rc ha se of $1 00 + M G L O , S an d th e So rr el li Gi rl s! 14 50 Je nk s Av e, Pa na ma Ci ty , FL | 85 0. 76 9. 69 79 M S 10 :3 0 6 cl os ed S Pl ac e yo ur vo te fo r the So rr el li Sp ri ng 20 16 co lo rs !

We will consider anything that is doable and desirable and manageable and is open and transparent.” SEN. CHARLIE DEAN R-Inverness The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — The House’s business-friendly approach to protecting Lake Okeechobee has been added to the Senate’s plan for new water policies for the state. The Senate Environmental Preservation and Con servation Committee on Tuesday unanimously approved changes to its version of the water policy bill (SB 918), which is deemed stronger by environmentalists for the state’s natural springs. The Senate proposal, which also seeks to develop a statewide trail system and increase public access to con servation lands for recreation, is more project-focused than the House plan, which was approved in a 106-9 vote on the third day of the legislative session. The water-policy proposals, while backed by many leg islators, are considered separate from a voter-approved requirement to increase spending on water and land projects in the Senate and House budgets. Committee Chairman Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican who is sponsoring the water-policy bill, said his proposal is still a work in progress. “There is no perfection in this bill or anybody else’s bill,” Dean said. “We will consider anything that is doable and desirable and manageable and is open and transparent.” Senate President Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, issued a release Tuesday saying the amended bill reflects the “commitment that the House and Senate would work together to develop a statewide water and natural resources policy for Florida.”

BARLOW 315-4438 | @KariBnwfdn A Destin-based charity is nearing its goal of raising $11,000 for the families of the 11 servicemen killed in the Black Hawk helicopter crash March 10. As of Tuesday, the Affordable Home Insurance Char ities Foundation had raised more than $8,900 through its page. “There’s been a tremen dous outpouring from the local community,” said Dennis Gagnon, president of the foun dation. “It’s always refreshing to know the community cares so much.” In addition to the online donations, the charity has received several checks in the mail. The total puts the charity close to its goal of raising at least $1,000 for the family of each of the four Marines and seven Louisiana National Guardsmen who died. “We felt it was only appropriate to respond to this tragedy which happened in our local community,” said Gagnon, who added that any shortage will be made up by him or the foundation. The charity plans to leave up the page for another couple weeks. “Then we’ll start the process of dispersing the money to each family,” he said.

Medical marijuana bill moves forward The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — Facing another legal challenge to the state’s attempt to craft a framework for a medicalmarijuana industry, a Senate com mittee moved forward Tuesday with a measure that would jump-start the process after hearing from dozens of speakers who objected that the pro posal does not go far enough. Senate Regulated Industries Chair man Rob Bradley, who was instru mental in passing a law last year that legalized non-euphoric cannabis for patients with cancer or chronic muscle spasms, is pushing a new plan that would expand the types of patients who would be eligible for the treatment. The plan also includes specifics about how the Florida Department of Health would choose nurseries that can grow, process and distribute the substance. Under the current law, health offi cials were supposed to begin selecting by Jan. 1 five nurseries to operate as vertically-integrated “dispensing organizations.” Those nurseries would have to meet qualifications, such as being in business for at least 30 years and processing a minimum of 400,000 plants. But a judge tossed the depart ment’s first attempt at regulations last year, siding with a handful of nurseries and other businesses that objected, among other things, to the use of a lot tery to select the licensees because a lottery wasn’t included in the law. Health officials earlier this month took a second stab at the regulations after a rare and exhaustive “negoti ated rule-making” workshop. But a lawyer representing a 4-year-old girl with inoperable brain cancer filed a legal challenge to the revised proposal two weeks ago, creating more delays in getting the law implemented. A judge has set an April 14 hearing in the case. Last year’s law was “a promise to families across Florida that had chil dren suffering from as many as 100 seizures a week that we would give them the relief they were asking for,” Bradley, R-Fleming Island, said. “A year has passed and unfortunately we have yet to be able to fulfill this prom ise that we made to those families, even though we wrote a law that said a system would be in place to deliver the substance by Jan. 1. The purpose of this bill is simple. To deliver on the promise we made last year.” The Department of Health “was given an impossible task,” Bradley said he concluded. Bradley’s new proposal, approved by the Regulated Industries Commit tee in an 11-1 vote Tuesday, would expand the number of licensees to 20 nurseries and broaden the types of eligible patients to include those with multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, HIV and AIDS and a handful of other ailments. His plan (SB 7066) also would lower a bond required for the applicants from the current $5 million to $1 mil lion, set the initial application fee at $50,000 and the biennial licensure fee at $125,000. But to the consternation of a stand ing-room only crowd who nearly all complained that Bradley’s proposal won’t help them or their children, his current plan does not increase the levels of euphoria-inducing tetrahy drocannabinol, or THC, now limited to .08 percent, or change the amount of cannabadiol, or CBD, now required to make up at least 10 percent of the product. Moriah Barnhart, whose lawyer filed the challenge to the low-THC pot rule on behalf of her 4-year-old daughter Dahlia, pleaded with the committee to consider expanding the THC levels to benefit children like her daughter, who suffers from inoperable brain cancer and uses a high-THC treatment. Barnhart said she filed the chal lenge to speed up the process of imple menting the law and does not oppose Bradley’s measure but wants more. “We are desperate. We are des perate to get their medicine here in this state and not have to fear being arrested for saving their lives,” Barn hart said. Former medical-marijuana user Dani Hall told the committee she had been addicted to opiates for years after repeated back surgeries until she began to the pot treatment. “Medical marijuana saved my life. Literally,” Hall said. Senate Regulated Industries Chairman Rob Bradley, who was instrumental in passing a law last year that legalized noneuphoric cannabis for patients with cancer or chronic muscle spasms, is pushing a new plan that would expand the types of patients who would be eligible for the treatment.

TALLAHASSEE Gambling workshop scheduled Thursday A House panel has scheduled a four-hour workshop next week to delve into major issues in Florida’s gambling industry, including the future of a deal with the Seminole Tribe. The Regulatory Affairs Committee will host the workshop Thursday. House Majority Leader Dana Young, R-Tampa, early this month released a wide-ranging gambling proposal that included changes such as allowing two Las Vegas-style casinos in South Florida. His proposal has not moved forward in the Legislature. Meanwhile, lawmakers are faced with the expiration in July of part of a lucrative gambling deal, known as a compact, with the Seminole Tribe. The deal, in part, allows the tribe to offer games such as blackjack at its casinos in return for payments to the state. But it remains unclear whether lawmakers and the tribe will reach agreement on renewing that portion of the compact. DO YO UR FEET HURT? PA INFUL HEELS? BURNING OR NUMB FEET?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You don’t know what people are going to want to talk about, so there’s really no way to prepare for any given conversation. The best you can do is follow your interests and learn all you can about them so you’ll have that to offer. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Eternity may stretch out behind you and before you, but where you’re standing now is also part of it. Use this slice of eternity. CANCER (June 22-July 22): You like the thrill of the chase, but right now you’re so busy that catching, maintaining and find ing a place for what you’ve caught may be more trouble than it’s worth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll enjoy the tangible rewards of your work and appreci ate even more the intangible boost of con fidence and vitality you receive just from being around certain people you’ve met through your job. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): At heart, you’re a minimalist who really cares about the environment. There’s nothing that you really need now, so if you’re going to steal, you’ll steal time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Some claim “high-maintenance” like it’s a compliment, but needing a lot of attention and care from others to operate well in the world isn’t your style.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Maybe you don’t exactly long to see your name in lights on a marquis, but there’s a version of this publicity and acclaim that would thrill you.

Thought for today “Scratch a pessimist, and you nd often a defender of privilege.” Lord Beveridge British economist (1879-1963) A Different Deal Every Day $15 $30 50% Granddaughter is racially bullied by classmates DEAR AMY: My wife and I live in a predominantly Caucasian town. I am Caucasian, and my wife is Asian. We are raising our 11-year-old Asian granddaughter. She is a wonderful child. For some time she has been the victim of racial abuse from some kids, and one boy in particular. This boy has called her slurs in front of her classmates. I have been to the school principal about this, and the boy has been reprimanded. His parents have been notified, and he has even been given a two-day suspension. The problem is that he just keeps it up. School officials have told us they have done everything within their power to stop this but can do no more. Is this behavior illegal? FRUSTRATED GRAMPA DEAR GRAMPA: I don’t often suggest this, but I think you should call a lawyer. The school has a duty to provide a safe environment for your granddaughter. If this bullying is continuing, then I don’t believe the school has done everything in its power to make it stop. It has acknowledged that it happened by suspending the boy. This also presents a learning opportunity for both children. A counselor should work with the offender to educate him about the impact of his actions. In addition to being told that his actions are wrong and unacceptable, he should understand why. He should acknowledge his actions and apologize to your granddaughter, ideally in front of the class. You should support your granddaughter’s efforts to stand up for herself, but mentor her also to feel compassion and sorrow for a boy who is so ignorant and cruel. DEAR AMY: We are a group of six women who have been friends (co-workers first) for more than 20 years. Some are married, some with grandchildren, and all are retired/semi-retired. For the last few years, one member of our group has become nearly impossible to reach via phone (no computer/email/cell), and when any of us leaves a voice mail, our calls are seldom returned, with either no reason or some vague or lame excuse (if any) as to why. She claims her friends are very important, but we are finding that hard to believe. She makes plans with us for lunch, dinner, plays, etc., but often does not show up or calls to say she won’t be joining us. UPSET FRIENDS DEAR UPSET: Your friend’s behavior is erratic, and I wonder if she is dealing with some health (or other) problems that she is shielding from you. She could be suffering from depression (or another health problem); she could be an alcoholic, have financial troubles, family worries or be in an abusive relationship. She might also have an unresolved personal issue with one or more in your group. Rather than doubt your longtime friend’s sincerity or chastise her for her rudeness and unreliability, you should approach her in an attitude of concern. Her connection to your group might be an important lifeline for her. DEAR AMY: “Mom Who Cares” wrote about her depressed teenage daughter. I could have written that letter myself a few short years ago when our daughter was in high school. Turns out, our daughter is gay but did not know how to tell us. She was afraid we wouldn’t love her anymore. She was certain she would lose all her friends. She was suffering with worry and was very depressed. ANOTHER MOM WHO CARES DEAR MOM: Your response may help other families recognize their own situation. Thank you.

Here are a few of the area authors making the most of it: ‘Confessions of an Assassin’ PORT ST. JOE — Author Linda Heavner Gerald’s new novel, “Confessions of an Assassin,” published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at or by visiting or “Confessions” is the story of Catherine Carnegie — a woman born in a prestigious family who could have been easily accepted into any university, but she had different dreams. After reading Margaret Mitchell’s masterpiece, she dreamed of exploring the South, finally realizing her dream in Eufaula, Ala. Carnegie’s beautiful home and art gallery gave her pride, but she also had a secret affair with Washington’s best. But when she stepped back from her reckless choices, a secret government agency gave her an assignment so sordid that her previous life beckoned. Gerald, born in North Carolina, received her nursing degree in Concord. When her son left for college, she got hooked on traveling. Gerald also gains inspiration from her experiences as a mother and a nurse. ‘Bad Memories’ PANAMA CITY — Doug Sandler’s first novel, “Bad Memories,” is a murder mystery and psychological thriller, focusing on John Miller, a doctor at Allendale Asylum. It is available through . “Who is murdering who in Millersburg?” the book jacket asks. Miller is sure he didn’t kill three people with the wrong dose of medication, but he’s still haunted by their screams. The truth unfolds amid a tangled web of love, betrayal, double-cross and manipulation, Sandler said. Originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., Sandler is a graduate of Gulf Coast State College and a student at Florida State University Panama City. He describes himself as a “mental health and disability activist and freelance journalist.” Learn more about him at Facebook. com/DouglasBrianSandlerAuthor . “When I write my books, I keep it simple,” Sandler said in a post to his site, explaining why he chose to self-publish. “I want my readers to get into the book by using their imagination, which is more rich than I can write.” (Note: The books appear to have been published without editing for style, format, grammar, punctuation or content. This announcement of release does not constitute a review.) ‘Hammer of Justice’ APALACHICOLA — John Barry Kelly’s debut novel, “Hammer of Justice” from Red Engine Press, has a plot with an intriguing premise and many twists and turns. However, it misrepresents the area in which it is supposed to take place, namely, Apalachicola and surrounding locations. Deeply flawed attorney Jack Riley, flees Washington, D.C., after the tragic death of his family and returns home to Apalach to practice law. He encounters a young single mother, Laura, who asks him to sue her employer, who is also her father, because he has forced her to end a racially mixed relationship and terminate her pregnancy with her missing boyfriend, Virgil. If you are looking for a courtroom drama full of intrigue and strategy, this could be the book for you. But if you are looking for a regional novel set in Apalachicola, look elsewhere. Although Kelly makes passing references to Panama City and oysters, the author appears to have scant local knowledge. “Hammer of Justice” is available at Downtown Books in Apalachicola. Lois Swoboda of The Apalachicola Times and Tony Simmons of The News Herald contributed to this report.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — In the 2008 national championship, with Kansas trailing Memphis by three and 10.8 seconds left in the game, coach Bill Self called for his team to run a play called “Chop.” The play, designed to pro vide multiple scoring options in moments of desperation, began with Sherron Collins dribbling up the court. Veering to his right, Collins handed off to Mario Chalmers at the top of the key, and Chalmers took the first of his options: He shot the 3-pointer. It splashed through the net to force overtime. Kansas went on to win the title, and that perfectly executed play became known as “Mario’s Miracle.” And if anybody thinks calling it a miracle is hyperbole, well, chances are they haven’t been watching as teams flounder through the final minutes in this year’s NCAA Tournament. Turnovers, missed shots, poor coaching and worse exe cution. Just call it organized chaos, late-game blunders that have nevertheless produced some memorable finishes. “First of all, the reason you struggle in games is because the other team’s pretty dog gone good,” explained North Carolina coach Roy Williams, whose team survived two close games to reach the Sweet 16. “The other thing is the atten tion, the pressure — they’re still 18-, 19-, 20-year-old kids. I mean, they’re not going to get it right.” Indeed, many of today’s brightest stars are freshmen and sophomore, players unaccustomed to the game’s biggest stage.

Miami reaches NIT semifinal RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Sheldon McClellan gave Miami its first lead of the game with just over a minute left and the Hurricanes rallied from 18 points down to beat Richmond 63-61 on Tuesday to advance to the NIT semifinals. Miami (24-12) heads to New York’s Madison Square Garden to face the win ner of the Louisiana Tech-Temple game on March 31. McClellan scored seven straight points, including a game-tying 3-pointer with 2:04 left and his go-ahead short jumper with 1:01 remaining. Davon Reed added a pair of free throws to give the Hurricanes a 61-55 lead with 26 seconds left. “We’ve been in this situation so many times this year,” said Miami coach Jim Larranaga, who is very familiar with the Spiders from his time as coach of their Colonial Athletic Association rival George Mason. “Our second game was at Florida and we were down 15 in the second half and we came back and won.” Miami trailed 30-18 at halftime against the Spiders. “I told my team at halftime we just needed to play harder and faster and attack more than we did in the first half,” Larranaga said. “We did not get a single free throw in the first half. In the second half, it was still much the same for about the first 10 minutes, and then finally we started to attack more.” The Spiders led most of the game and used a pair of 3-pointers to spread out their lead to 36-18 early in the sec ond half. But a streak of Richmond fouls and mostly accurate free throw shooting allowed the Hurricanes to slowly close the gap as Richmond’s offense sputtered in the face of a withering Miami press.

Of the 13 replay altera tions proposed, including extending the number of coaches’ challenges and letting them challenge all officiating calls, the only one passed will allow game offi cials to use replay for clock issues at the end of a half, game or overtime if more than 1 second remains. Washington’s suggestion to use replay to review per sonal fouls was withdrawn. Kansas City withdrew a pro posal to allow replay officials to review all potential scores or turnovers. For example, a pass ruled incomplete in the end zone could be reviewed by the replay official without a coach’s challenge. Cur rently, the play would be reviewed only if it was ruled a touchdown. Proposals defeated were: lincreasing coaches’ challenges by one to three; replay reviews of any personal fouls; reviews of any penalty resulting in a first down, with no challenge necessary; replays on fouls against a defenseless receiver being enforced when a reversal results in an incomplete pass; reviewing fouls against a defenseless receiver, with an unsuccessful challenge not costing a timeout; reviewing whether time expired on the play clock before the ball is snapped; using stadium-pro duced video for a replay review. Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was disappointed the Patriots’ proposal that virtually any thing be challengeable was not passed. “We sort of have an ency clopedic notebook of what you can challenge,” Lurie said. “I prefer challenge anything. It didn’t pass and I hope someday it will.” The owners approved a proposal for stopping play when a medical adviser believes a player is unstable and should be taken off the field.

By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent PANAMA CITY — It’s much too early in the season for Gulf Coast to go into a panic, though at 0-4 in the Panhandle Conference, there’s ample reason for concern. The Lady Commodores were unable to break through with their first league win Tuesday night at home, dropping both ends of a double header to Chipola, falling in the first 3-1 and the second 10-7. With 12 conference games still left to be played, there is plenty of time for Gulf Coast (22-19 overall, 0-4 in conference) to get back into contention, with coach Beth Wade saying that the solution is fairly simple. “We’ve just got to play the game how we know to play it,” she said. “We’ve got to play hard and play focused for seven innings. Just play the game and stop giving games away. We’re not playing up to our ability, but it’s fixable things. If we play to our ability, then I think we can play with anybody.” Chipola (31-8, 5-1) strengthened its position atop the Panhandle standings with the sweep, getting a dominant pitching performance in the first game from Jessica Elliott, who came on in relief in the second to shut down a late Gulf Coast rally. Elliott was nearly unhittable in the opening game, striking out 12 batters and not allowing the Lady Commodores their first base hit until an infield single by Taylor Campbell in the bot tom of the seventh. That hit allowed Kinsley Faulkenberry to score from third after reaching base earlier on a hit by pitch for Gulf Coast’s only run of the game. The Lady Commodores had a chance to extend the game with two runners on and one out, but Elliott shut the door by striking out Kelbi Davis looking and Alison Mitts swinging to end the game. Elliott improved to 14-4 on the season and kept her season earned run average at a min iscule 0.73. “She’s pretty much been shutting everyone down this season,” Wade said of the Chipola sophomore right-hander. “We couldn’t make any adjustments against her.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, March 25, 2015 The Associated Press Look out Dortmund, Fir ing Line may be running head to head with you again on Derby Day. The 3-year-old colt who twice lost by a head to toprated Dortmund in Califor nia, soared to No. 4 in the AP’s latest Run to the Roses’ Top 10 Kentucky Derby rank ings after a record-setting romp in New Mexico. While the Land of Enchantment isn’t the typical path to the Ken tucky Derby, Firing Line’s 14 1/4-length victory in Sunday’s Sunland Derby is still impressive. He ran 1 1/8 miles in a track record 1:47.39. Plus, he’s ridden by three-time Kentucky Derby winner Gary Stevens. The Hall of Fame jockey says he’s in a great spot: “He did it all very professionally. Real easy. He can do well at the next level.” And there’s this: In 2009, Mine That Bird ran fourth in the Sunland Derby before pulling a huge upset in the Kentucky Derby at 50-1 odds. Firing Line earned 50 Derby qualifying points for the win, and now ranks sixth with 58 points. The Derby field is limited to 20 starters based on points awarded for designated races. Also, Dubai Sky earned 50 points with a win in the Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park last weekend, and was a late nomination for the Triple Crown races at a cost of $6,000. The race for points really heats up Saturday with the Florida Derby, Louisiana Derby and the UAE Derby. The point totals double to 100 for a win, 40 for sec ond, 20 for third and 10 for fourth. Upstart and Itsaknockout top the field for the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park, where Upstart finished nearly 3 lengths ahead of Itsaknockout in the Foun tain of Youth but was DQ’d to second for interference. Upstart is No. 5 this week; Itsaknockout is eighth. International Star gets his chance for a New Orleans prep sweep in the Louisiana Derby after wins in the Lecomte and Risen Star. In Dubai, the field for the UAE Derby has three horses nominated for Triple Crown races — Mubtaahij, Maftool and My Johnny Be Good. NEW YORK (AP) — Pitchers will have to beat the clock at Triple-A and Double-A this season. In an effort to speed games, Minor League Baseball’s governing body said Tuesday a ball will be called in the count starting May 1 when a pitcher fails to start his windup or reach the set position within 20 seconds after having possession of the ball on the mound. The clock will be reset when with runners on base a pitcher feints a pick off or steps off the rubber, or after any action that allows a hitter to leave the batter’s box. Depending on the situation, the hitter must be in the batter’s box or within the dirt circle surrounding the plate when the count down begins. “It definitely is a little weird, espe cially for guys who take more time,” said New York Mets left-hander Jack Leathersich, who split last sea son between Double-A and Triple-A. “Everybody pitches differently. There’s no right way to do it. I think it’s good for the game to speed it up a little bit.” The speed-up rules are more radi cal than those instituted in the major leagues for 2015, where union approval was needed. Minor league violators in April will be subject to warnings only, the same as in the major leagues. Both the major leagues and minors will have clocks timing pitching changes and between-inning breaks: 2 minutes, 25 seconds for most games and 2:45 for big league games on national television. In the high minors, a ball would be called if a pitcher doesn’t start his windup or come to a set during the last 20 seconds. Clocks are being installed at 60 ballparks at the minors’ top two levels, paid for by Major League Base ball Advanced Media, the interactive branch of MLB. Each stadium will have two clocks behind home plate and one in the outfield. LAS VEGAS (AP) — The first ticket has yet to be sold, but the richest fight in boxing history is getting richer by the day. New esti mates show Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s payoff for fighting Manny Pacquiao could easily be $180 million, up from earlier predictions of $120 million. Pacquiao gets the short end of the purse, but even that is expected to be well over $100 million by the time everything is tallied up. The money is staggering, though not exactly unexpected. Five years of waiting seem to have only piqued the public’s demand. “For whatever it’s worth, the buildup over these years has cer tainly enhanced the fight,” pro moter Bob Arum. “Everybody knows about it now, even people who don’t follow boxing. Plus we have a good economy, unlike in 2009 when people were out of work and didn’t have the money to spend.” Fans will certainly have to pay a price to see the May 2 welter weight title bout, especially those lucky enough to score a ticket inside the MGM Grand arena itself. Ticket prices there range from $1,500 in the upper deck to $7,500 at ringside — and only a small percentage of the tickets will actually be put on public sale. Arum said Tuesday the gate at the MGM alone will be more than $72 million, obliterating the previous live gate record of $20 million in Nevada set by Mayweather’s 2013 fight with Canelo Alvarez. Though the MGM will provide some tickets for its biggest gamblers, Arum said even the celebrities who can normally get free tickets to sit ringside will have to pay full fare for the fight — if they can get their hands on tickets at all. Promoters announced a deal Tuesday with Sky Sports to tele vise the fight on pay-per-view in England and parts of Europe, part of another $35 million expected to come in from foreign rights. Add in another $10 million in spon sorships — Tecate beer will be the main sponsor — and the fight will gross more than $100 million before a single home in North America buys the pay-per-view. Less certain is how many peo ple will spend what is expected to be $100 or so for the pay-per-view in the U.S., but that could easily break records, too. Mayweather’s 2007 fight with Oscar De La Hoya currently tops the charts with 2.44 million buys, but many think Mayweather-Pacquiao could do more than 3 million homes despite softness in the pay-per-view market in the last few years. “That’s the one element that’s a mystery,” Arum told The Associ ated Press. “It seems like it will break the record, but who really knows? Anyone who predicts the total pay-per-view is whistling in the dark.” Rich get richer: Mayweather, Pacquiao purses soar Firing Line movin’ up in AP’s Derby Top 10 RUN TO THE ROSES 1.

TOP 10 Beat the clock: Pitchers put on timers in high minors KISSIMMEE (AP) — Nick Marka kis made his debut in the outfield for the Atlanta Braves and said he felt ready for opening day after playing six innings Tuesday in a 6-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Markakis signed a four-year, $44 million contract with the Braves in the offseason and had surgery Dec. 17 to repair a herniated disk. He saw his first game action Monday, going 2 for 3 as the designated hitter. He went hitless in three at-bats. “I had a good feeling out there,” Markakis said. “I need to make some more throws, but my swing is feel ing good. Right now, it’s all about my timing.” Markakis won a Gold Glove last year in Baltimore and is going to replace Gold Glover Jason Heyward in right field for Atlanta. Markakis had a down year at the plate, batting .276 with 14 homers and 50 RBI. “I feel better than I thought I would today,” Markakis said. “I just need more plate appearances.” Markakis said he would be play ing in minor league games just to get some extra at-bats. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said the minor league games might be even more important than the regular Grapefruit League games for now. He said that, with the relaxed rules in minor league spring training games, Markakis could lead off in almost every inning and take a break. “He should get about 35 at-bats before opening day, but I have no doubt he will be ready,” Gonzalez said. “With the minor league games, he’ll get plenty of at-bats.” Twins 6, Blue Jays 5 FORT MYERS — Torii Hunter hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer off Chad Jenkins in the seventh inning, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays. It was the first homer this spring for the 39-year-old Hunter, who signed a one-year, $10.5 million, one-year deal to return to the Twins, a team he left after the 2007 season. Hunter had just two extra-base hits, a pair of doubles, through his first 25 at-bats before connecting on an 82 mph break ing ball. Before the game, the Twins announced a $20 million, four-year contract with second baseman Brian Dozier, who homered on the first pitch he saw. Astros 4, Mets 3 PORT ST. LUCIE — David Wright hit his third home run of spring training, a two-run drive in the New York Mets’ loss to the Houston Astros. Wright, limited to eight home runs last year by a lingering shoulder injury, has three home runs and nine RBIs in his past seven games. Mets starter Dillon Gee allowed four hits in four scoreless innings and struck out one. Houston’s Collin McHugh gave up three runs — two earned — two hits in five innings with seven strikeouts. Jake Marisnick was 2 for 2 with a solo homer and Luis Val buena was 2 for 2 with a double and a RBI for the Astros. Orioles 9, Pirates 2 BRADENTON — Andrew McCutchen was hitless in two at-bats in his return to the Pirates’ lineup, and Steve Pearce homered against his former team to lead the Baltimore Orioles over Pittsburgh. McCutchen, the 2013 NL MVP, was out 10 days with lower body soreness. He has a .143 batting average in six spring training games. Orioles starter Ubaldo Jiminez had his best outing of spring, strik ing out three and allowing four hits in five scoreless innings. The Orioles scored five runs in the fourth inning off reliever Jared Hughes. Marlins 9, Red Sox 4 JUPITER — Allen Craig bolstered his bid for more playing time in Bos ton’s crowded outfield, hitting a threerun double in helping the Red Sox build a lead the Miami Marlins would overcome with an eight-run eighth inning for a victory. Jordany Valdespin hit a two-run triple and Jeff Baker doubled in two in the Marlins’ big inning. Miami man aged only one hit until the eighth. Playing in the spring training park he once called home with the St. Louis Cardinals, Craig’s double off Tom Koe hler capped a four-run third inning for the Red Sox. Rays to retire Zimmer’s No. 66 ST. PETERSBURG — The Tampa Bay Rays will honor former longtime senior adviser Don Zimmer by retir ing uniform No. 66 before their April 6 season opener against Baltimore. Zimmer spent 11 years with the Rays, from 2004-14. It was his longest stint in his 66 years with 14 major league teams as a player, coach, man ager or adviser. AP Members of the Minnesota Twins are led in a cheer by Torii Hunter, center, without ball cap. Braves ready for opening day MLB ROUNDUP NFL from Page C1 line of scrimmage when the opponent is punting; eliminat ing all peel-back blocks and chop blocks by running backs outside the tackle box; and extending defenseless player protection during an interception return. Tabled was a move to place cameras on all boundary lines (sidelines, goal lines and end lines) while the league further researches such a project. Lurie, like several owners this week, threw his support behind the NFL returning to Los Angeles. That’s become a much more feasible possibility with a stadium planned by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, and with the Chargers and Raiders also in the process of putting together another construction plan for elsewhere in the area. Asked if the league having one or more teams in Los Angeles again is inevitable, he enthusiastically replied, “I sure hope so.” “I think there is a real chance we’ll get one of these sta diums done,” added Lurie. “Two teams to start off, I assume one from the AFC and one from the NFC. It makes no sense for the NFL not to be there.” But the NFL has not been in the nation’s second-largest market since the Rams and Raiders left in 1995. The race now seems to be on, with many owners eager to return to L.A. And to bring back more than one team, offsetting the enormous costs of the new stadium that could approach $2 billion. “I think to support the financial commitment of doing the kind of stadium that’s necessary in L.A., you’ll need the resources of two teams,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said. More discussions of Los Angeles will be held, and with the next set of league meetings set for San Francisco in May, the topic will remain a hot one.


SPORT S Wednesday, March 25, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 game we were able to barrel the ball up some more, but we left a lot of runners on base and didn’t make the most of all our chances.” Katie Beth Gordon was good for Gulf Coast in defeat, going all seven and allow ing just one earned run on seven hits, a walk, a hit bat ter, and two strikeouts. Madison Ragan started and got the win in the sec ond game for Chipola, going six innings and giving up four earned runs on nine hits and three strikeouts. Mitts took the loss for Gulf Coast, allowing two earned runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings. The Lady Indians broke through with three runs in the first inning, capitalizing on an early Gulf Coast error with an RBI single by Savan nah Ryken and consecutive double steals resulting in runs. A solo home run by Courtney Davis and an RBI single by Shelby Clark made it 5-0 in the fourth, with the Lady Commodores getting a run back on an RBI single by Amber Dozier in the fifth and another on an RBI triple by Kelbi Davis in the sixth. Chipola answered with five in the top of the seventh, including a two-run home run by Ragan and a two-RBI double by Courtney Davis to make it 10-2. The Lady Commodores came back in their last atbat by putting their first six batters on base result ing on four runs thanks to a two-run inside-the-park home run by Kayla Fields and a two-RBI single by Campbell. An RBI double by Laree Van Orden off of reliever Ilona Andringa made it 10-7 and brought Chipola coach Belinda Hendrix out to the pitching circle to make a change and bring her ace back out to finish. Elliott wasted little time putting an end to the Gulf Coast rally, striking out Jade Sankey on three pitches and Dozier on four to pick up the save. Lead-off hitter Ciara Jones set the tone the Chipola offense all night, finishing the two games 4 for 5 with an RBI and three runs, while the No. 2 hitter Clark had three hits and four RBI. Courtney Davis finished 4 for 7 with a home run, a double, three RBI, and two runs. Campbell was 3 for 7 with three RBI on the day for GC, with Kelbi Davis going 3 for 4 with a triple, a double, an RBI, and a run in the second game. Fields and Dozier also had two hits, an RBI, and a run each.

MEN’S SWEET 16 CAPSULES: EAST/SOUTH REGIONALS NCAA from Page C1 coaches have argued, is also one of the big reasons that that scoring continued its downward trend this season. Another reason for the late-game flubs: Lowand mid-majors are often try ing to upset a heavyweight, and the talent gap becomes more pronounced when the game is on the line. That appeared to be the case last Thursday, when UC-Irvine had Louisville on the ropes. The Anteaters were inbounding the ball near midcourt, trailing 57-55 with about 6 seconds left. Alex Young was promptly stripped by the Cardinals’ Terry Rozier, a turnover 40 feet from the hoop that prevented the Big West champs from even attempting a tying shot. “We had a quick play lined up and unfortunately I lost the ball,” Young said. “We couldn’t get a time out, and it just happens. It’s basketball.” Speaking of timeouts, Northeastern burned through its allotment in the second half against Notre Dame, leaving coach Bill Coen unable to set up a final play with the Hus kies trailing by two in the closing seconds. Instead of getting a tying shot off, Quincy Ford coughed up the ball, and the Fighting Irish added a couple of free throws to seal the victory. Asked about his time out dilemma, Coen replied: “I wish we’d had one left.” Irvine and Northeast ern weren’t the only teams that failed to get shots off with the game on the line, either. The same thing happened to Valparaiso, whose coach Bryce Drew knocked down that infa mous 3-pointer that sent the Crusaders past Ole Miss in 1998. Valpo was trailing Maryland 65-62 with time running out on Friday, and Keith Carter got stuck in the corner in front of his own bench. He never even got a 3-pointer off. “I’ll take the blame from that,” Drew said afterward. “I thought Maryland did a really good job. We tried to do something a little differ ent off one of the plays we usually run.” When the Jayhawks flawlessly ran “Chop” in the 2008 title game, they had practiced that exact play hundreds of times. And the person who took the 3-pointer? Chalmers, a seasoned junior. “There is a lot of pres sure,” acknowledged Wil liams, who whose Tar Heels survived a tense finish against Harvard in their NCAA opener. “You’ve got to find some kids that can block all that out, and especially if they’re really, really talented, you’ve got a better chance.” North Carolina took a 67-65 lead on the Crimson on a run-out with 23.8 sec onds left. But rather than go to the basket for a layup or to draw a foul, Harvard’s Wesley Saunders let loose a tightly guard 3-pointer with almost no time left that bounced off the back of the rim. The Tar Heels advanced. The Crimson headed home. “We certainly have situations that we go over when we’re down one pos session and things that we’re looking for,” Harvard coach Tommy Amaker said. “Wesley is our play maker. ... If he was going to get a three, get a drive, get a two, we were going to live with his decision there.” Just like many other teams that now have to live with their last-second slipups.

Congress on Tuesday awarded its highest civilian honor to golfing great Jack Nicklaus, who accepted the medal with a few tears, humility and humor. In a ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda, the House and Senate leadership bestowed the award on Nicklaus, winner of 18 major championships, including six Masters titles, five PGA championships and four U.S. Opens. “Few transcend their sport to achieve that kind of moment, or this kind of honor,” said House Speaker John Boehner, an avid golfer who grew emotional at times during the ceremony. “With Arnie (Palmer), it was how he brought an audience to the game — an army. With Jack, it’s how he gave the game a gold standard — a ladder to climb.” The 75-year-old Nicklaus, dubbed the Golden Bear, recalled the hard work of his parents, praised his family and paid tribute to his wife, Barbara. He recalled that when his son Jack was six, he was asked what his father did for a living. The younger Nicklaus said, “Nothing, he just plays golf.” An emotional Nicklaus told his family that his whole life he wanted to make them proud of him, and “hopefully I have.” The speakers, from congressional leaders to Nicklaus’ son, recalled the drama of the golfer’s 1986 win at the Masters. They praised Nicklaus’ charitable work, including the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, which recently pledged $60 million to the Miami Children’s Health System. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Nicklaus had a brush with polio as a teenager. McConnell said that as a fellow survivor of polio he appreciated Nicklaus’ perseverance. NHL: Quick, Kings top Rangers again NEW YORK — Marian Gaborik snapped a secondperiod tie, and Jonathan Quick shook off an openingminute goal to lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night in a rematch of last year’s Stanley Cup Final. The Kings, fighting for a chance to defend their title, have won the first two games of a five-game trip on successive nights. Robyn Regehr scored a rare goal in the first period, and Jeff Carter and Jake Muzzin extended the lead in the third. Anze Kopitar had two assists. Quick made 34 saves. Lightning 4, Panthers 3 TAMPA — Ryan Callahan and Nikita Kucherov scored in the third period, leading the Tampa Bay Lightning to a victory over the Florida Panthers. Kucherov tied it at 3 with a wraparound for his 27th goal at 1:30. Callahan skated from behind the net and snapped a shot past Pan thers goalie Roberto Luongo from the left circle with 2:28 left on the clock. Brenden Morrow and Tyler Johnson also scored for Tampa Bay, which has won four in a row and eight of 10. Wild 2, Islanders 1, SO UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Zach Parise scored the tying goal mid way through the third period, then added another in the shootout to help the Minnesota Wild beat the New York Islanders for their 10th straight road win.
