Joe,
 
If this is a SMF, you can't use the W14x61, it doesn't meet b/t ratio for seismic (53/SqRt Fy), you need to go to a W14x68 miniumum.  I would lean towards the W14x48, since you may require doubler plates in your column.

Thanks you confirmed what I thought. Would you use a W14x48 or W14x61 ?
