It is just one of the death pen-alty aggravatorŽ categories that prosecutors are listing in their case against a man charged with strangling Bernadine Montgomery in her home in June 2016.Whether David Mariotti, 35, is found guilty of first-degree murder in the trial that begins today is up to the jury. But there is no doubt that the crime itself „ including the use of her stolen cards and car, stashing her body on a couch for days and finally dumping her body in the woods „ was heinous, and worse. Another statutory aggravator listed by prosecutors is that at 84, she was especially vulnerable.For anyone who has elderly loved ones living alone, the crime was a nightmare in the flesh. The fact that it happened in the quiet, established, tree-lined Palmora Park neighborhood in Leesburg, made it even more disturbing.These factors, and a surprising twist in the case, have defense and prosecuting attorneys wor-ried about pretrial publicity.Were going to have individual voir dire,Ž Executive Assistant Public Defender John Spivey said, referring to the questioning of prospective jurors. Were going to use two courtrooms.Ž About 50 people will be in one courtroom while one potential juror will be one-on-one with attorneys in the other to see if they know anything about Mariotti on trial todayMariotti See MARIOTTI, A9By Hope YenThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin is making it clear he was fired from his job amid conflicting claims from the White House.White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters on Sunday told The Associated Press that Shulkin had resignedŽ from his job when President Donald Trump abruptly announced via Twitter last Wednes-day that he was nominating White House doctor Ronny Jackson to replace him.But in television interviews, Shulkin said he had not submitted a resignation letter, or planned to, and was only told of Trumps decision shortly before the Twitter announcement.

The Associated PressDUNDEE, MISS.By Nicholas RiccardiThe Associated PressIt may be a while before President Donald Trump gets another chance at cre-ating a new, merit-basedŽ immigration system, a key-stone of his four-part plan that Congress rejected last month. In the meantime, his administration is busy making it harder, not easier, for skilled migrants to come work in the United States.The State Department has ended an Obama-era program to grant visas to foreign entrepreneurs who want to start companies in the United States. It is more aggressively scrutinizing visas to skilled workers from other countries. And it is contem-plating ending a provision that allows spouses of those skilled workers to be employed in the U.S.The administration and its backers contend its trying to fix flaws in the existing, employer-centric skilled immigration system while advocating for a com-plete overhaul of Americas immigration system.The stuff that theyre actually doing is not so much restricting skilled immigration as enforcing the law,Ž said Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports reduc-ing immigration. Theyre rolling back some of the extralegal measures that other administrations have taken.ŽA primary avenue for skilled immigrants to enter the United States is the H1B visa for specialty workers, which is heavily used by the technology industry. About 85,000 visas are issued annually in a lottery system. Some critics argue they are a way for companies to avoid hiring U.S. citizens; Trump him-self has said H1B recipients shouldnt even be consid-ered skilled.In 2016, two technology workers sued Disney, alleging 250 U.S. employees were laid off and many were forced to train replacements who were hired on H1B visas. A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit, saying Disney was following existing immigration laws.The Trump administration has increased its scrutiny of H1B applications, requiring renewals be submitted in person and asking for additional proof the workers are needed and are being paid top tier.This increase reflects our commitment to pro-tecting the integrity of the immigration system,Ž said Joanne Fereirra, a spokes-woman for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. She added that 92.5 percent of the visas are still approved, only two percentage points lower than under the Obama administration in 2016.Still, businesses have noticed a change.Weve got employees that are going through the process, who have gone through such a level of scrutiny and interrogatory that is unprecedented,Ž said Dean Garfield, president of the Information Technology Industry Council, which advocates for H1B visas and has had one of its own workers have to move back overseas because of delays in approving the requisite visa.The extra time with H1B visas is only part of the administrations changes to skilled, work-based immigration.Last year, Trump signed an executive order that directed all government agencies to rigorously enforce and administer the laws governing entry into the United States of work-ers from abroadŽ to ensure the maximum number of U.S. citizens have jobs. The order also called for shifting H1Bs from lower-paid workers to higher-paid ones who truly have skills that cant be obtained from the native workforce.The administration also stopped an Obama admin-istration program that was about to start last year to provide visas to let international entrepreneurs who start companies in the United States live in the country for renewable, 30-month stints.In December, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released its new regulatory agenda which included further, unspeci-fied changes to the H1B program. The administration also indicated it will roll back the STEM OPT program expanded by Pres-ident Barack Obama that lets international science and technology students work legally in the U.S. for up to three years.Meanwhile, the State Department said last week it is seeking to further enhance vetting of potential immigrants and visitors by requiring all U.S. visa appli-cants to submit their social media usernames, previous email addresses and phone numbers „ information that was previously sought only from applicants iden-tified for extra scrutiny. The department estimates 710,000 immigrant visa applicants and 14 million non-immigrant visa applicants will be affected annually.Trump making it harder for migrants in USIn this Feb. 20 photo, Akash Negi poses for a picture near his of“ ce in New York.

Bill Galvano, who will take over as Senate president in Novem-ber, said Thursday evening that leaders in the two cham-bers are exploring options to seal a new deal with the tribe, possibly before the next fiscal year begins July 1.Galvano, a Bradenton Republican who has taken the lead on negotiations with the tribe for the past several years, said he and incoming House Speaker Jose Oliva are continuing to explore possibilities to resolveŽ a number of issues surrounding the complicated gambling issues.The legislative negotiators are trying to strike a deal, called a compact,Ž to replace a 2010 agreement between the state and the tribe.One of the critical provisions of the 2010 deal, giving the tribe exclusiv-ityŽ over banked card games, such as blackjack, expired in 2015. That spawned a pro-tracted legal battle and futile attempts by lawmakers to reach a new agreement.The tribe pays the state more than $300 million a year for the exclusive rights to the card games and to oper-ate slot machines outside of Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

The group uses animals „ mostly dogs „ to help people in nursing homes, schools, veterans groups and others to form that dog-human bond.The group has been vis-iting area libraries since 2008 and brings therapy dogs „ usually two at a time „ to the Tryon Branch Library on the third Saturday of each month, and at the Southwest Branch Library on the fourth Saturday of each month. Times are 10 a.m. to noon. All dogs are with their owners/handlers and are on a leash.

A jury deadlocked last June at the former TV stars first trial after Cos-bys lawyers managed to sow enough doubt in the minds of a few jurors. That was before the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct started top-pling famous men in rapid succession, among them Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Kevin Spacey and Sen. Al Franken.Veteran lawyers and jury consultants say #MeToo will make the process of picking 12 jurors more complex and raise the stakes even higher.The defense is likely to use attitudes toward the movement to weed out jurors.There may be a juror who says, I dont have an opinion about Cosby, but the #MeToo is very important to me,Ž said Melissa M. Gomez, a jury expert and author of the book Jury Trials Outside In.Ž That person is still very dangerous to the defense.ŽCosby, 80, is charged with drugging and molest-ing Andrea Constand, a former Temple University athletics administrator, at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.Last year, after more than 52 hours of jury delib-erations over six days, the judge declared a mistrial. One juror said the panel was split 10-2 in favor of conviction, while another said the group of seven men and five women was more evenly divided.A juror who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity said he was suspicious of Constands story, questioning why she waited to tell authorities about the alleged assault and suggesting the clothing she wore to Cosbys house had influenced his view of their encounter.The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.phone earlier that day about VA improvements, with no mention of his job status, and was scheduled to meet with the president the next morning.I came to run the Department of Veterans Affairs because Im committed to veterans,Ž Shulkin said. And I would not resign, because Im committed to making sure this job was seen through to the very end.ŽThe semantics could be relevant to Trumps ability to name an acting VA secretary to temporarily fill Shulkins place. Last week, Trump named Defense Department official Robert Wilkie to the acting posi-tion, bypassing Shulkins deputy secretary, Tom Bowman. Bowman has come under criticism for being too moderate to push Trumps agenda.Under federal law, a president has wide authority to temporarily fill a federal agency job if someone dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office.Ž There is no mention of a president having that authority if the person is fired. Still, its unclear if courts would seek to draw a legal distinction between a firing and a forced resignation, if that is indeed what happened to Shulkin.The day after announc-ing that he was replacing Shulkin, Trump told a rally in Richfield, Ohio, that he had been dissatisfied with efforts to improve VA. Shulkin had enjoyed Trumps support for much of his first year in the administration, but that eroded in February after a bruising ethics scandal and political infighting at VA.A VA spokesman did not have immediate com-ment Sunday. Wilkie, now listed on the VA website as acting secretary, took over Shulkins duties last week.The back and forth over the circumstances behind Shulkins departure „ and what it could mean for Wilkies status „ comes as the nomination of Jackson is drawing concern among lawmakers and veterans groups. They worry the Navy rear admiral and lifelong physician lacks the experience to manage an enormous agency para-lyzed over Trumps push to expand private care.Trumps new Cabinet nominees also are beginning to pile up in the Senate, likely leading to weeks of confirmation battles and other delays in the run-up to congres-sional midterm elections in November. That could mean an extended reign for an acting VA secretary.On Sunday, Shulkin, who had previously recommended Jackson to be VA undersecretary of health, repeatedly demurred when asked to fully endorse Jackson for the job of VA secretary. He noted the complexity of running the governments second largest department.This is a very tough job,Ž Shulkin said. Im not sure that anybody realizes how complex this is... I think he is going to need to have a good team around him, like everybody will, to be successful.Ž DailyCommercial.com | Monday, April 2, 2018 A9the case. The court sent out a letter to prospec-tive jurors warning them not to listen, watch or read any news accounts about the case. If they pass that test, they will begin the lengthy process to see how they feel about the death penalty. People who are biased in either category will be excluded for cause. Then, the process begins to pick 12 jurors and a handful of alternates, with each side limited to the number of strikesŽ they utilize.The selection process could take three days, Spivey said. The twist in the case that has generated a lot of news coverage in the Daily Com-mercial was Circuit Judge Don Briggs suppression of a portion of Mariottis confession.Spivey successfully argued that detectives were misstating the law, including the penalties. ƒthere are people who, like go to jail for manslaugh-ter, they get five years, you know,Ž Detective James Dunagan said, misrepresenting the importance of intent.Hey, if they offered me five years for killing some-body, Id take it, too,Ž Spivey said. In fact, people can be charged with felony murder, even if they are not the one who pulled the trig-ger, if someone dies during the commission of a felony.The judge ruled that jurors can still hear about Mariotti being in the house when she was killed, and in helping hide her body. That help allegedly came from his companion, Tracie Jo Naffziger. She will testify against Mariotti.Both sides have lined up insect experts to estimate the time of death, based on evidence found on the couch. If it goes to the penalty phase, both sides will present mental health experts.New laws require juries to be unanimous in their death penalty recommendations, which makes it harder for prosecutors to get a death sentence.Assistant State Attorney Rich Buxman, who will be handling the case for the state, declined to comment for this story.

A10 Monday, April 2, 2018 | DailyCommercial.comBy Errin Haines WhackThe Associated PressATLANTA „ Tyrone Brooks was 22 years old and 400 miles away, seeking clues to an unsolved lynching as old as he was, when he got the news that Martin Luther King Jr. was dead. Stunned, Brooks dropped everything and drove to Memphis, crying all the way.The next day, Kings closest confidant, the Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, told Brooks: Tighten your belts and dry your tears. If you love Martin Luther King as you say you do, help me carry on his work.ŽThe members of Kings tight circle barely paused to grieve. They plunged into carrying out his unfinished work, and turned it into a lifelong vow.Some went into politics. A few continued to serve the organization that King led or started their own. Others returned to the pulpit, preaching a gospel of racial liberation.And the King legacy continues, evident today in a new generation pro-testing many of the same issues King confronted : inequality, police brutal-ity and poverty.Legally, segregation was outlawed, but we still face a danger in public space,Ž said Bree Newsome, who climbed a pole to snatch down the Confederate flag at the South Carolina state-house in 2015. In that way, I absolutely feel that what were doing is continuing in the legacy of Martin Luther King.ŽEven so, the problems persist. A poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found only 1 in 10 African Americans think the United States has achieved all or most of the goals of the civil rights movement. Among whites, only 35 percent believe those goals have been at least mostly achieved.A lot of people across the country see injustice or inequality as unfortunate, almost like a car accident, instead of unjust and something they have to do some-thing about,Ž said Rashad Robinson, 39, who uses Kings example as a guide in his work as executive director of the online civil rights group Color of Change. People talk a lot about empathy, but King was really building power. Power is the ability to change the rules, and Dr. King was all about changing the rules.ŽJesse Jackson parlayed his service at Kings side into a blend of grassroots activism and elective politics.Through aggressive voter registration, Jack-son assembled a base of support patterned after the beloved communityŽ King envisioned for America and ran for president twice in the 1980s. His candidacy is widely considered to have laid the foundation for the election of the first black president, Barack Obama, in 2008.We were determined to keep moving, in his name,Ž Jackson said.After the assassination, Brooks helped lead the Mule Train „ a caravan of mule-drawn wagons that symbolized poverty „ out of the Deep South to Washington for the Poor Peoples Campaign, Kings last big protest, in the summer of 1968. He followed up his career in Kings Southern Christian Leadership Conference with nearly four decades as a Georgia legislator, pushing legislation that would eventually remove the Confederate symbol from the state flag.Now 72, Brooks does advocacy work around the same 1946 quadruple lynching he was pursuing 50 years ago. No one was ever arrested or charged in the case.Some of us are so committed to making sure the dream never dies, we committed to this struggle for life,Ž Brooks said.Though only 13 when King was killed, the Rev. Al Sharpton was already an SCLC activist. He said his dramatic approach, aimed at seiz-ing media attention and the national spotlight, came from Kings playbook.King knew how to deal with movement theater and we had to recreate that,Ž said Sharpton, 63. When people say, All they want is publicity, thats exactly what we want. Thats what King wanted. Because if you cant make something a public issue, no one will seek to solve it.ŽThat strategy has largely been the focus of the Rev. William Barber, who began the Moral Mondays movement in North Carolina in 2013 to push back against rollbacks on edu-cation, health care and voting.Its time to change the moral narrative,Ž said Barber, 54, who will lead a revival of the Poor Peoples Campaign this spring to attract new attention to poverty.Brittany Packnett, 33, who became an activist after Michael Brown was killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, said her activism is fueled by Kings willingness to sacrifice himself for a freedom he may never see.ŽIf Dr. King hadnt done this for us, we wouldnt be here,Ž Pack-nett said. As persistent as injustice is, so will we be.ŽCommitment to Kings un nished work remainsIn this May 2, 1969, photo, Rev.

Two weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to give my comments on school security in Lake County. I advocated Mr. Bill Mathias's proposal to arm select school staff who are willing to take on this responsibility and go through the necessary training to defend the children in our school system.To see my full argument and call for effective security in schools, you can find it on the Lake County School Board YouTube channel by clicking on the March 12 School Board meeting video. Today, I write this to reiterate my call for a more properly defended school system to protect students as they learn and grow.As a student of Lake County schools for almost my entire academic career, I believe it is imperative that the superintendent, school board members and members of the community support this proposal, as it is a necessary precaution to defend your children and their teachers as these kids prepare to lead America in its future. This measure, backed by our elected Sheriff Peyton Grinnell, will allow a better defense system to deter or prevent mass killers from taking aim on the people of our community in what is supposed to be a safe environment. As the world changes and violence seems to be more prevalent, we the people must recognize that we live in a new reality where evil is striking in new forms. Evil is taking aim on children and their educators where law enforcement takes too long to effectively respond. For the time it takes for multiple lives to be lost, we students and our educators are on our own. Anonymous, trained and determined staff will be what stands in the way of potential mass murder and your sons and daughters, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers. These teachers, prior military or law-enforcement personnel, would have the ability to engage deadly threats imposed on them and their students with equal force. Through 132-hour courses involving firearms training and handling, lessons in defensive tactics and active-shooter scenarios and education pertaining to lawful engagement, school staff would be equipped with what they need to thwart attempted massacres of children. Had the educators and coaches at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who died defending their kids been armed and trained for these incidents, the severity would have been drastically minimized. We need to understand that evil is alive. School shootings will happen again. Some parents will face the unimaginable nightmarecome-true that their sons and daughters won't be coming home one day because they were gunned down by psychopathic killers with no regard for the value of life as those at Parkland did. It's time we do something. We have teachers and staff that take pride in us students and without a doubt would stand in front of your children if an armed murderer came through their classroom door. Let's give those teachers the training and a better chance to do so if the time comes at a Lake County school so they can stop the threat and stop the death. These school staff members will be the line of defense that your children could one day rely on. Arming specific school staff is the fastest measure we can instill in our school systems. There are teachers who are up for the task and responsibility to be selfreliant and be that barrier between murderers and your children. It's time the school system provides a path for school staff to become the safeguard for children that past victims lacked. School shootings are going to happen again. People's lives are going to be unfairly cut short because of deranged, hateful people's desire to take them. School Board members, we are relying on you to make the right decision and go forward with this proposal. Let's make our schools the exemption to the list of vulnerable targets for slaughter. Let's take action so the future of America in this community can be a part of it. Don't let Lake County schools be the next mass shooter's option. Make the Lake County School District safe. Keep our teachers safe. Keep your children safe. Thank you. Ian Long is a senior at Tavares High School.

But for his efforts to reform a vast bureaucracy and to better serve Americas 20 million veterans, Shulkin will be sorely missed. He may have himself to blame for a host of alleged ethical violations, although Shulkin contends he has been falsely accused by Washington partisans and veterans groups opposed to his reform efforts. Whats clear is that many of those efforts have been sensible and courageous. The next VA leader „ Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, the White House physician, has been tabbed „ should push ahead on the same track. Shulkin supported a plan approved by Congress to privatize VA services, but was wary of moving too abruptly or drastically. So the department focused on cities where VA hospitals are overcrowded and in rural areas where they are hard to reach. His efforts enabled many veterans to get care more quickly, and set up a controlled study to inform a broader push. Unfortunately, his pragmatism conflicted with a blind faith in privatization held by rivals in Donald Trumps administration. This was not the only initiative Jackson, if confirmed, would do well to continue. Shulkin carried on with earlier reforms to the departments disability payment system, which has trapped many veterans in dependency, discouraging them from rejoining the workforce. He stepped up measures to improve employee accountability, and to prevent deserving veterans from being denied urgent care. He reinvigorated the VAs stalled effort to bring its record-keeping into the digital age and make its online system compatible with that of the Defense Department. And he proceeded carefully with the effort to shift care for homeless veterans „ some 40,000 people „ to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which may be better suited to the task. The VA still needs to do a better job of vetting veterans who apply for care and disability payments. Consider that more than one-third of living veterans who served since the Sept. 11 attacks have sought some form of remuneration, compared with just 21 percent of those who served during the Vietnam War. Its one reason the departments budget has ballooned to $200 billion. This responsibility now falls to Jackson. Shulkin, the only holdover from the Barack Obama administration in the Trump cabinet, persevered through a challenging if short term as VA secretary, attacked by foes from both political parties. Americans should thank him for his service, and hope Jackson will understand and further his priorities. From Tribune News ServiceANOTHER OPINIONAmerican veterans deserve reforms, not politicsANOTHER OPINIONStudent supports arming select Lake schools sta A lot of people have short memories when it comes to politics. Politicians often exploit this fact, but sometimes it works against them. Thats what happened to Mitt Romney this week. As part of his campaign for the Senate, he told a Republican group in Provo, Utah, that he was more of a hawk on immigration than even the president.Ž As McKay Coppins notes in The Atlantic, the remark came as a rude shock to people who dislike President Donald Trump in important part because he wants tougher laws on immigration and who had thought well of Romney because he refused to endorse Trump in 2016. Utah Republicans have a reputation for being softer on the issue than Trump, adding to the surprise. It turned out, though, that Romney is still the same man who, during his presidential run in 2012, said that illegal immigrants should be encouraged to go home (self-deportŽ) rather than get legal status. Romneys views were also misunderstood. Some observers took a subsequent statement from the campaign as a retreat from the Provo remarks, but it turned out that he has in fact been taking a consistent position. (Coppins explains the misunderstanding well.) Untangle the news accounts, and what Romney is saying is that he does not think illegal immigrants, even those who came here as minors, should have been granted legal status. This is the point which he says puts him to the right of Trump: The president says they should have that status, indeed that they should have citizenship. Since President Barack Obama gave them legal status, however, Romney believes that they should be allowed to stay. Unlike Trump, Romney draws the line at citizenship. He does not think DACA recipients should receive it unless they serve in the military, get a college degree, or otherwise (as he put it in Provo) do more.Ž As tough as Romneys stance may seem, the Utah Republican Partys platform goes further in one respect than he favors. It calls for no longer granting citizenship to the children born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants. Most legal experts believe that would require a constitutional amendment. Romney says that rather than change the Constitution, we should deter illegal immigrants from coming here in the first place. As that platform suggests, the reputation of Utah Republicans as relatively soft on immigration may be misplaced. If Romney wins his election, as everyone expects, the states senior senator will be Mike Lee, who voted against offering illegal immigrants legal status in 2013. Romneys views seem to be considered ones. As a moderate restrictionist on immigration, I largely agree with them. I think he was wrong, though, to oppose granting legal status to people who came here illegally as minors, and is wrong to oppose granting them citizenship now.If someone is here illegally, but knows no other home than this country and came here through no fault of his own, then we should neither kick them out nor prevent them from becoming full participants in our society. We should not give them a second-class legal status as an incentive for them to serve in uniform or go to college. (And come to think of it, the equation of those two things, a feature of several immigration proposals over the years, is rather obnoxious.)Flip-flopping is part of Romneys reputation, too, and he is probably not inclined to strengthen it by adjusting his position on this part of the immigration debate. Even so, I wish he would reconsider. Ramesh Ponnuru is a Bloomberg View columnist.ANOTHER OPINIONMitt Romney out-Trumps Trump on immigration

The team also said Sunday that preliminary tests showed McCaw has no structural damage or prob-lems with his nervous system after the freak injury.Golden State announced that X-rays, a CT scan and an MRI were all clear.Ž McCaw was able to leave UC Davis Medical Center. He is scheduled to be re-examined by a specialist on Thursday and his injury „ aside from anything related to the impact of the fall „ will be listed as a bruised lumbar spine.LAS VEGASVegas retires jersey 58 to honor shooting victimsOn the night the Vegas Golden Knights clinched the NHLs Pacific Division title, the expansion team retired the No. 58 jersey and raised a banner with the names of the 58 killed in the Oct. 1 concert shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.In a pregame ceremony Saturday night, the black-and-gold VEGAS STRONGŽ banner was lifted to the rafters at T-Mobile Arena following a video tribute.Several Knights players called the ceremony emo-tional, powerful and beautiful. Vegas forward Alex Tuch says he believes the team drew inspiration from the ceremony as they went on to beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2.Hundreds of others were injured when a lone gunman carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.COLUMBUS, OHIOSmith thrilled to be part of Hall of Fame classKatie Smith has been running around the wom-ens Final Four all weekend, serving as the unofficial hostess of the sports biggest event.There were awards to hand out, courts to dedicate and parties to attend. So the best womens basketball player from Ohio in history decided to skip going to San Anto-nio, where the mens Final Four is being held, to be announced as part of the 2018 Basketball Hall of Fame class.I have a lot of stuff here; thats why I felt I would like to be in Columbus,Ž Smith told The Associated Press. Its the first time were hosting and Im super invested in things. The city is putting on a good show. It feels like the perfect match to celebrate here with those that were with me from the beginning. They didnt fight me much about staying.ŽSmith is one of the most decorated players in all of womens basketball. She retired following the 2013 season as the top scorer in womens professional basketball history with 7,885 points, and she ranked second in the WNBA with 6,452 points at that point.

basically had the same putt and theres no way he was going to miss it after watching my ball. I gave Ian the perfect read (for him) to make his putt. I knew he was going to make it.ŽIn the sudden-death playoff on the 18th, one of the more daunting finish-ing holes off the tee with water down the left side and a bunker to the right, Hossler found the bunker for the second time. He hit into a greenside bunker, and his third shot caught way too much ball and went over the green and into the water.Poulter was safely on the green as Hossler took his penalty drop, chipped onto the green and took two putts for a triple bogey.They finished at 19-under 269.Poulter won for the third time on the PGA Tour, and his first in America since the Match Play in 2010 at Arizona. This was his first stroke-play victory in America, and the timing could not have been better.When he reached the quarterfinals of the Dell Technologies Match Play last weekend in Austin, he was told that it was enough to get him into the top 50 in the world ranking by the end of the weekend, the cutoff for qualifying for the Masters.It turned out he needed to win his quarterfinal match, and Poulter was informed of the mistake before he teed off. Kevin Kisner beat him, 8 and 6.Poulter was so disappointed that he contemplated not even going to Houston, and when he opened with a 73 in a first round of low scoring, he packed his bags and prepared to go home to Florida the next day. Instead, he bounced back with a 64, and shot 65-67 on the weekend.Last week was painful,Ž he said. To come here this week, I was tired. I was frustrated on Thursday. ... I was patient. I waited my time. And this is amazing.ŽIt was his first victory since the HSBC Champions, a World Golf Championship event at Mission Hills in China in 2012. That was a month after Poulter led Europe to a stunning turnaround in the Ryder Cup by making five straight birdies to win a fourballs match and give Europe momentum to overcome a four-point deficit.Along with going to the Masters, Poulter cracks the top 30 in the world and now is in good shape to be eligible for the rest of the majors. He also has a two-year exemption, critical because he nearly lost his card a year ago until he was spared by a clerical error by the tour. DailyCommercial.com | Monday, April 2, 2018 B5Ian Poulter hits his third shot on the 13th hole during the third round of the Houston Open Saturday in Humble, Texas. [ERIC CHRISTIAN SMITH/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] POULTERContinued from B1because of NCAA sanctions in the wake of an embarrassing sex scandal. It was the first time a Division I mens basketball program was stripped of a national championship.Going into his 1,260th game as a head coach, Beilein doesnt anticipate that winning a title, or not, will change how he sees his career.You hang in there and you just do your absolute best every single day. And someday youre going to say, I gave it everything I had, and if Im falling into my grave, thats OK too,Ž Beilein said. But you just do everything you can to be the best coach, the best mentor, the best teacher, the best husband, the grandfather, father every day, and you go do it again. And thats all I want to be.ŽMichigan is in its seventh national title game. The Wolverines have won only one, beating Seton Hall in overtime in 1989. Since his first coaching job as an assistant coach at Division III Rochester in 1984, Wright has been crossing paths with Beilein, who at the time was at LeMoyne College, also in New York. Wright said Beilein had an advan-tage in recruiting back then because he could offer scholarships while Wright could not.Youd be on a guy and youd just hope you wouldnt see John in the gym. And like, in April, hed pop in and hed see you,Ž Wright said. Youd say, Are you going to take him, John? He goes, Yeah, Im sorry but were going to take him.ŽThey coached against each other in the Big East, after Wright got to Villanova and when West Virginia was still in that league.These Wolverines with 6-foot-11 Moe Wagner are similar to some of Beileins teams at West Virginia, like the ones that made back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances more than a decade ago with big man Kevin Pittsnogle.They remind me of Johns West Virginia teams. Wagner kind of reminds me of a modern-day Pittsnogle, thinned down, eating healthier, a little more skilled,Ž Wright said.After Michigan wrapped up the first national semifinal game Saturday by finally putting away Loyola, the favorite underdogs with Sister Jean on their side, Beilein didnt get a chance to tune into the Villanova game until after halftime.By then, the Wildcats had already matched the Final Four single-game record with 13 of their 3s. They had a double-digit lead throughout after jumping ahead 14-4 in the first 4 minutes and added 10 more points before Kansas scored again.Im sure glad I didnt get to see it,Ž Beilein said. It was an offensive clinic against a very good defensive team.ŽOn Monday night, it will be up to Beileins very good defense to try to prevent another one. NCAAContinued from B1 toward the NCAA Tournament title game on Monday night.Theres a process of going through the season that you have to experi-ence one, two, three times before you can really have this type of success under this pressure in March,Ž Michigan coach John Beilein said.The Final Four this year has come down to just that.All four teams had talented freshman, though none of the one-and-done variety. Loyola-Chicagos Cameron Krutwig was the Final Fours leading true freshman scorer at 10.3 points per game. The last two teams have counted on freshman to help them reach the title game.Wildcats big man Omari Spellman is a freshman, but had a redshirt year to learn coach Jay Wrights system and transform his body. Collin Gillespie has appeared in 31 games, but averages only 4.3 minutes.The Wolverines have two key players who are freshmen in Jordan Poole and Isaiah Livers. Poole hit the buzzer-beater against Houston to send Michigan into the Sweet 16 and was the vocal leader in the locker room when the Wolverines trailed Loyola-Chicago at halftime in the national semifinals. Livers has started 21 games this season, rotating with Duncan Robinson at forward. One-and-done they are not.These title contenders are here because they have veteran leaders, savvy players who know the games nuances and can handle the brightest spotlights without peek-ing around the corner to a professional career.We recruit guys that just want to be in college,Ž Wright said. We want them to enjoy the college experience and then we hope that after one year of enjoying the college expe-rience they have a really difficult decision to make that the NBA wants you but you really enjoy college. Rather than come to college saying I want to get out as soon as I can.ŽVillanova is led by Asso-ciated Press national player of the year Jalen Brunson, a heady, always-in-con-trol junior who fills up the box score. The rest of the leadership trust includes juniors Mikal Bridges, Eric Booth and Eric Paschall, and scrappy sophomore Donte DiVincenzo. VILLANOVAContinued from B1in the lane to tie it.The title came 17 years to the day after Notre Dame's only other cham-pionship in 2001 on Easter."It's Easter Sunday, and all the Catholics were praying for us," said coach Muffet McGraw, who was wearing floral shoes in honor of the holiday.When the final buzzer sounded, a wild celebration started with the Irish faithful who were part of the sellout crowd. McGraw's team had fallen short four times in seven years in the title game, losing in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015. Many of the Notre Dame alums who were on teams that had fallen just short of winning a title were there to enjoy it, including Natalie Achonwa, Natalie Novosel and Becca BruszewkiThis version of McGraw's squad refused to lose, and the run was even more improbable because the Irish lost four players over the season to ACL injuries.Tied as the clock ran down, Mississippi State star Teaira McCowan missed a layup with 27.8 seconds left, and both teams turned the ball over. McCowan then fouled out of the game stopping an Irish fast break and set up the final 3 seconds.After Ogunbowale's clutch shot, the officials huddled and put onetenth of a second on the clock. A couple of Mis-sissippi State players had already headed for the locker room, while Notre Dame players celebrated.The court was cleared, and Mississippi State tossed a futile inbounds pass into the lane as the buzzer sounded.For the fourth straight NCAA game, the Irish found themselves trail-ing at the half. They were down 40-25 early in the third quarter before finally getting on track offensively. The Irish closed the period with a 16-1 run to tie the game at 41 heading to the final quarter.The Irish (35-3) were buoyed by severe foul trouble by Mississippi State that saw all five of its starters with three fouls in the third quarter.

DEAR ABBY: My elderly father remarried after my mother died two years ago. He married an acquaintance who is 30 years younger at the courthouse with no friends or family in attendance. He told this woman beforehand that there was a large widow's pension he'd paid into for decades that he wanted to give to her by marrying her. She claimed to be in an "unhappy" marriage at the time, and promptly got a divorce. Well, she and her now-ex have "suddenly started getting along just great," so she decided to continue to live with her ex after her marriage to Dad. Despite agreeing to these terms and because the woman teased him before their marriage, Dad is angry that she still won't have sex with him. Also upsetting is that when they are out socially, his new wife still introduces her ex as her "husband" and Dad as their "friend." Now we learn, despite assurances during discussions with an attorney prior to the marriage that she would never exercise her rights as a spouse to any other funds or property, she's asking my dad for a monthly allowance so she can retire, since she has no savings. Abby, do we have any recourse in this situation? Do you think we are right to call my father's marriage fraudulent, and would we be considered accomplices by not reporting it to any authorities before his death? -STEPDAUGHTER IN REVOLT DEAR STEPDAUGHTER: You are correct that the "marriage" was fraudulent, and you certainly do have recourse. Your father's lawyer should be consulted immediately to discuss an annulment of this bogus arrangement. Because your father's judgment is so poor, go with him to ensure that no details are left out. Frankly, I think the woman may be guilty of elder abuse, and your father may need a conservator.DEAR ABBY: I'm in seventh grade. Until recently, I was my usual happy, bubbly self. I saw school as a place to make friends and have more freedom than I did in elementary school. I was always happy and social and made friends easily. As the months have passed, it seems like, as I look around, everything annoys me. I can't explain why but I have stopped talking to all of my friends for long periods of time. All these terrible emotions build up. I am angry, sad, frustrated. Now everything that has built up inside me comes out at the worst times. I cry a lot and I feel no one understands why. This may seem like a normal middle-school breakdown that goes away over days, but it's not. People see me crying and think, "Oh no, she's crying for no reason again" or "Why is she crying? What is wrong?" but the thing is I don't know what's wrong with me. At odd moments when I'm alone with my thoughts, these feelings come back, stronger and stronger each time. I can't stop them. Why am I like this? -ALMOST-TEEN IN TURMOIL DEAR ALMOST-TEEN: That's a very good question, and one you should ask your parents, because they know you better than I do. The lows you are experiencing may result from the fact that you are maturing and the hormones in your body are changing. However, because you are concerned enough about what's going on to write to me, you may need to be examined by a physician. If you need help beyond that, the doctor can recommend a referral. I'm glad you wrote. It shows you are an intelligent young lady who recognizes she has a problem and wants to deal with it.

You could be overly serious at times. You might opt to head in your own direction. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You might need to rethink a recent episode involving an important relationship or interaction. A partner seems to be much more serious than you realize. Make an adjustment, if needed. A friend could come up with an inspired idea. Try it; it could work. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Honor a need to do something very different. Someone you care about either professionally or personally has been on your case. Do your best to compensate, but expect to try a new approach or play the waiting game. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Give way to another type of thinking. Understand that others might feel more restricted than you do, which prevents them from nding a viable solution. Consider the possibilities. Be positive when dealing with a challenging child or friend. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Keep your eye on investments involving real estate. Use care with your nances in general. How you deal with others could change, as you might need them to work with you. Together, you are even more powerful. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You might be inspired by a conversation with an intensely emotional friend. Sometimes you get so frustrated by what you hear that you want to pull back. Right now, your frustration lies in trying to help this person settle in. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Be aware of the costs of continuing as you have been. You are a sign that loves the good life. Overindulging seems to come naturally. You will need to muster up as much restraint as possible. Your word choice will be particularly important. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You have experienced an easing up of spending. More funds seem available, which only adds to your security. Use this period to work through a hassle that has gone on too long. Do not hesitate to put terms on a difcult and/or changing situation. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) Be aware of what is happening with a close loved one who is choosing to stay mum. Initiate a long-overdue conversation with this person. How you approach a personal matter could change as the result of a recent discovery. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) News comes to you through a conversation that could encourage you to head in a certain direction. Use your sixth sense to determine which way would be best to go. Sometimes you need to make yourself a higher priority. Today is a good example. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) A higher-up demands a lot of attention and wants to proceed in a certain manner. The smart move is to go along with this persons ideas. If they work, great; if not, your input will be appreciated. Letting someone have some space can be powerful. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You know what is needed, but you might not know the best way to proceed. Others could test your patience. Allow your creativity to soar. Youll nd answers, even if a group of friends seems a bit somber and uncreative. DailyCommercial.com | Monday, April 2, 2018 B7 TODAY IS MONDAY, APRIL 2, the 92nd day of 2018. There are 273 days left in the year. TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY: On April 2, 1968, "2001: A Space Odyssey," the groundbreaking science-ction lm epic produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood, had its world premiere in Washington, D.C. ON THIS DATE: In 1792 Congress passed the Coinage Act, which authorized establishment of the U.S. Mint. In 1932 aviator Charles A. Lindbergh and John F. Condon went to a cemetery in The Bronx, New York, where Condon turned over $50,000 to a man in exchange for Lindbergh's kidnapped son. (The child, who was not returned, was found dead the following month.) In 1956 the soap operas "As the World Turns" and "The Edge of Night" premiered on CBS-TV. In 1986 four American passengers, including an 8-month-old girl, her mother and grandmother, were killed when a terrorist bomb exploded aboard a TWA jetliner en route from Rome to Athens, Greece. In 1992 mob boss John Gotti was convicted in New York of murder and racketeering; he was later sentenced to life, and died in prison.
