[MARK WALLHEISER/AP] Students, parents a ected by Florida school shooting ask president to take stand against gun violenceBy Catherine Lucey and Matthew DalyThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Spill-ing out wrenching tales of lost lives and stolen safety, students with quavering voices and parents shaking with anger appealed to President Donald Trump on Wednesday to set politics aside and protect American school children from the scourge of gun violence. Trump listened intently as raw emotions reverberated at the White House.Faced with the personal anguish wrought by the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead, Trump pledged action, saying: We dont want others to go through the kind of pain youve been through.ŽTrump hears emotional pleasSee REFORM, A4 See TRUMP, A4 INSIDE | B12 Bay students charged with school threats in 2 daysBy Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ It was a battle of drawn blood.In the second trial day Wednesday for 22-yearold Cody Austin Shirah, attorneys on both sides called blood alcohol content experts to further their cases. Shirah has been in custody since September 2016 in connection with a crash at the intersection of John Pitts Road and Pinetree Road that killed four Ohio softball play-ers visiting Bay County for a tournament. Prosecutors have tried to show that Shirah was intoxicated at the time of the crash, while the defense has argued he was not driving and that the methods used to determine his blood alco-hol content were flawed.Shirahs fate will be in the hands of a Bay County jury today after both sides deliver their closing arguments.Prosecutor Larry Basford, before resting his case Wednesday, showed the jury autopsy pictures of the four victims „ Anthony Gouge, 30, Eric Young, 25, William Gouge II, 29, and Josh Martin, 33, all of Ohio. Shirah was visibly upset, sniffling and clutching a tissue, while viewing the pictures. The family and friends of the victims, who filled the wooden pews of the court-room, averted their eyes and wept.Dr. Jay Radtke, 14th Judicial Circuit medical examiner, told the jury multiple blunt force traumasŽ caused each of the mens deaths, either through injuries to their brains or internal organs. As he described how one victim had some organs in his lower body crammed into his chest cavity, the audiences sobbing increased with someone exhaling and muttering JesusŽ under their breath.In the course of the days testimony, Basford first called an expert witness to testify to the amount of alco-hol in Shirahs system after the crash.Validity of blood draws in questionProsecution rests in Shirahs quadruple fatal DUI manslaughter caseSee SHIRAH, A5

** A2 Thursday, February 22, 2018 | The News HeraldThe Bay County Sheriffs Office has arrested a 17-year-old Rosenwald High School student after a teacher reported overhearing a conversation detailing his stated intentions to conduct a shooting at the school. Richard Hill: Ok so Bay County Sherrif arrests 17 yrs old for making threats but Broward County Sherrif does not and now we have one of the worse shootings in History due to what?

** The News Herald | Thursday, February 22, 2018 A3By Ian DeitchThe Associated PressJERUSALEM „ Now that one of Benjamin Netanyahus closest confidants has turned state witness, according to Israeli media reports Wednesday, it may mark a turning point for the beleaguered prime minister facing a slew of corruption allegations that could topple him from power.The testimony by Shlomo Filber, a long-time Netan-yahu aide, is the latest in a dizzying series of develop-ments and scandals that have engulfed the prime minister, his family and his inner circle.Police would not confirm whether Filber would tes-tify against Netanyahu, but all the major Israeli media outlets said a deal to do so had been reached.Aluf Benn, editor-inchief of the Haaretz daily, wrote Wednesday that these are the final days of Benjamin Netanyahus ruleŽ and that Netan-yahus leadership has been dealt a harsh blow, appar-ently a mortal one.ŽFilber, the former direc-tor of the Communications Ministry under Netanyahu, is under arrest on suspicion of promoting regulation worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Israels Bezeq telecom company. In return, Bezeqs popular news site, Walla, allegedly provided favorable coverage of Netanyahu and his family. The reports came shortly after another bombshell allegation that a different Netanyahu confidant attempted to bribe a judge in exchange for dropping a corruption case against Netanyahus wife. Nir Hefetz, a longtime media adviser to Netanyahu and his family, remains in custody. The prime minister, who held the communications portfolio until last year, has not yet been named a suspect, though he may soon be questioned. Netanyahu has denied all the charges.Netanyahu aide turns state witness in corruption case

** A4 Thursday, February 22, 2018 | The News HeraldHe was faced with grieving families looking for answers. Few had concrete sugges-tions, but a few spoke in favor of raising age limits for buying assault weapons.Parkland student Samuel Zeif said hes heard of 15-year-olds buying rifles. Cary Gruber, father of a Parkland student, implored Trump: Its not left and right,Ž adding: if you cant buy a beer, shouldnt be able to buy a gun.ŽAndrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the shooting, noted previous school massacres and raged over his loss, saying the moment wasnt about gun laws but about fixing the schools.It should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it and Im pissed. Because my daughter, Im not going to see again,Ž said Pollack. King David Cemetery, that is where I go to see my kid now. Trump solicited suggestions from the group. He promised to be very strong on background checks,Ž adding that were going to do plenty of other things.Ž He also indicated interest in the idea of concealed weapons for trained teachers, saying it was something his administration would be look-ing at it very strongly.ŽA strong supporter of gun rights, Trump has nonetheless indicated in recent days that he is willing to consider ideas not in keeping with National Rifle Association orthodoxy, including age restrictions for buying assault-type weapons. Still, gun owners are a key part of his base of supporters.Over 40 people assembled in the State Dining Room. Among the group were six students from Parkland, including the student body president, along with their parents. Also present were Darrell and Sandra Scott, whose daughter was killed in the Columbine, Colorado, shooting, and Nicole Hockley and Mark Barden, who lost children in Sandy Hook, Con-necticut. Students and parents from the Washington area also were present.The student body president at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Julia Cordover, tearfully told Trump that she was lucky enough to come home from school.ŽShe added: I am confident you will do the right thing.ŽNot all the students impacted by the shooting came to the White House.David Hogg, who has been one of the students actively calling for gun control was invited but declined, said his mother Rebecca Boldrick.His point was (Trump needs) to come to Parkland, were not going there,Ž she said.Television personality Geraldo Rivera had dinner with Trump at his private Palm Beach club over the weekend and described Trump as deeply affectedŽ by his visit Friday with Parkland survivors. In an email, Rivera said he and Trump discussed the idea of raising the minimum age to purchase assault-type weapons.Trump suggested strongly that he was going to act to strengthen background checks,Ž Rivera said.Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said they will introduce a bill to raise the minimum age required to purchase rifles from gun deal-ers, including assault weapons such as the AR-15.A kid too young buy a hand-gun should be too young to buy an #AR15,Ž Flake said on Twitter. The bill he and Feinstein support would raise the minimum purchase age for non-military buyers from 18 to 21, the same age required to purchase a handgun.The NRA did not respond to a request for comment. Trump embraced gun rights on his campaign, though he supported some gun control before he became a candidate, backing an assault weapons ban and a longer waiting period to purchase a gun in a 2000 book.Throughout the day Wednesday, television news showed footage of student sur-vivors of the violence marching on the Florida state Capitol, calling for tougher laws. The protests came closer to Trump, too, with hundreds of students from suburban Maryland attending a rally at the Capitol and then marching to the White House.Daniel Gelillo, a senior at Richard Montgomery High who helped organize the pro-test, said students were hoping to pressure lawmakers to act. He said that up till now nothing has quite fazed them.ŽOn Tuesday, Trump directed the Justice Department to move to ban devices like the rapidfire bump stocks used in last years Las Vegas massacre. The White House has also said Trump was looking at a bill that would strengthen federal gun background checks.But those moves have drawn criticism as being inadequate, with Democrats questioning whether the Justice Department even has authority to regulate bump stocks and argu-ing that the background check legislation would not go far enough.Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Com-mittee, said the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lacks authority under current law to ban bump stocks.If ATF tries to ban these devices after admitting repeat-edly that it lacks the authority to do so, that process could be tied up in court for years, and that would mean bump stocks would continue to be sold,Ž said Feinstein, of California, calling legislation the only answer.The Justice Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment about how it might implement Trumps order or how an ongo-ing bump stock review would be affected. ATF reviewed the devices and approved them in 2010, finding they did not amount to machine guns that are regulated under the National Firearms Act that dates to the 1930s.because we know what we went through and we know this needs to be changed.ŽGov. Rick Scott was attending a funeral Wednes-day for one of the 17 victims of the shooting, which authorities said occurred after Nikolas Cruz, 19, legally obtained an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and mowed down students, teachers and coaches in a span of three minutes.Scott, though, met later with a group of the students in a closed session. He plans to issue a list of proposals Friday that are expected to focus mostly on increas-ing state funding for mental health and school security, while adding some restrictions on gun access for the mentally ill or those under age 21.The Legislature is sched-uled to adjourn March 9.Students who met Wednesday with House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land OLakes, repeatedly pushed him to explain why a ban on high-powered weapons was not part of a series of changes lawmakers are considering.Julie Bishop, 18, a senior at the school who, with about 100 other students, trav-eled by bus 450 miles to the Capitol, pointedly asked Corcoran why he was ignor-ing calls for a ban.I dont think there is bipartisan support for it,Ž said Corcoran, who derided the Democrats move as a stunt.ŽCorcoran told Bishop and the others that such cities as Chicago and Washington, D.C., which have strict gun controls, also have some of the nations highest murder rates.We are looking at it,Ž Corcoran said, echoing Scotts description that everything is on the table.ŽBut we want to make sure whatever we do works,Ž Corcoran concluded.Many of the students speaking at an event in the Rotunda between the House and Senate chambers said they were disappointed by the response from Republican leaders. Lorenzo Prado, an 11th-grader, told of hiding at the school for hours while the shooting took place, and later being handcuffed by SWAT team members after being wrongfully identified as the shooter.The law has failed us. What we must do now is enact change because that is what we do when something fails,Ž said Prado, fighting back tears as he recalled feel-ing guilty about friends and teachers killed, and even for failing to text his mother to assure her that he was safely hiding. Prado said that after mass killings at Colorados Col-umbine High School, Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, and Orlandos Pulse nightclub, people have lost confidence in their government.ŽWe are told nothing can be done. We are told that time and again ... but never again should a tragedy like this happen in this country,Ž Prado said.Another student, Ryan Deitsch, said, Ive been walking into office after office after office and Ive only spoken to three repre-sentatives, and two already agree with me. I want to see those people who have spoken out against this, and shot down that bill.ŽOutside the Capitol, a loud noontime rally echoed many of the same demands.Brandon Wolf, 28, a survivor of the 2016 shooting at Pulse, in which a gunman killed 49 people, incited the crowd by reciting a grim litany of the mass murders of recent years and the policy response which followed.What did they do?Ž Wolf said, directed at elected officials.Nothing,Ž the crowd roared back.The Florida League of Women Voters, Equality Florida, Florida PTA and the Broward County teach-ers union were among the organizers. The protests „ and the students presence „ dominated the day at the Capitol.In the Senate, a moment of silence and a slideshow with pictures of those killed opened its floor session. The Senate also postponed action on a pair of bills that would have expanded access to guns in Florida, as students looked on from the gallery.While the Legislature remains unwilling to ban assault-style weapons, Republican lawmakers are considering a series of other gun-control measures, including raising the age limit for purchasing the type of weapon used in the Broward County shooting.Another proposal could add AR-15s and similar high-powered guns to the three-day waiting period which currently applies only to handguns.Florida is among 25 states that get an FŽ rating from the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, a major gun-control group. And last weeks attack seems to have heightened a divide long in Florida.Polls show gun control is much more popular in the states more Democraticleaning southern half. The legislation banning assault weapons was filed months ago by two Orlando Demo-crats, Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith and Sen. Linda Stew-art, but failed even to get a hearing in Tallahassee, where Republicans set the agenda.In meeting with stu-dents, Corcoran, the House speaker, touted increased mental health spending and a boost in money to have sheriffs deputies stationed at schools, proposals likely to be included in the package lawmakers embrace. Tighter security at schools also looks likely, with ID badges and single entry-points being talked of, along with having specially trained school staff or former security personnel authorized to carry con-cealed weapons at schools.Students, though, repeat-edly tried to direct Corcoran back onto the topic of gun access „ and why there are no dramatic changes being considered. One student asked what they should do if lawmakers again fail them.Rep. Jeanette Nunez, R-Miami, one of Corcorans top deputies who accompanied him at the meeting, tried to reassure the students.I cant say it enough,Ž Nunez said. We will not fail you.Ž REFORMFrom Page A1 DATELINESBERLINSpace probe prepares to sniff Martian atmosphereA European space probe has swung into position around Mars in preparation to analyze its atmosphere for possible signs of life.The European Space Agency said Wednesday its Trace Gas Orbiter successfully performed a delicate maneuver known as aero-braking that involved dipping into the red planets upper atmosphere to slow the probe.The agency says the orbiter will start looking for trace gases such as methane, which can result from biological or geological activity, in April. It will also search for ice that could help future Mars landings.A NASA-made radio on board will also help relay sig-nals from U.S. rovers on the surface back to Earth.HARARE, ZIMBABWEZimbabwes Mugabe marks 94th birthday in near solitudeZimbabwes former leader Robert Mugabe was celebrat-ing his first birthday since his resignation in near soli-tude on Wednesday, far from the lavish affair of years gone by.The government that removed him with military assistance in November declared Feb. 21, Mugabes birthday, a national holiday.But there were no signs of past celebrations, no giant cakes or thousands of supporters wearing clothing with Mugabes image, no live state television broadcasts.The 94-year-old, once a fiery and tireless speaker, has been quiet since he resigned in the face of impeachment efforts by the ruling party.NEW YORKIts OK to use nasal spray ” u vaccine again, US panel says Its OK for doctors to start using a kid-friendly nasal spray flu vaccine again, a fed-eral panel said Wednesday.Two years ago, the advisory group pulled its recommenda-tion for FluMist vaccine after research found it wasnt work-ing against swine flu, the kind of flu that was making most people sick then. But the Advisory Commit-tee of Immunization Practices voted 12-2 Wednesday to rec-ommend the nasal spray as an option for next winters flu season. An official from AstraZeneca, the company that makes FluMist, said the problem with the vaccine has been identified and corrected. But panel members noted theres still not good proof that FluMist works well against the swine flu bug.BELGRADE, SERBIARussia criticizes pressure to turn away from Moscow Russias foreign minister on Wednesday criticized Western policies toward his country, blasting the European Union for failing to maintain good relations with Moscow despite the divisions over Ukraine and many other issues.Sergey Lavrov said during a visit to Slovenia that being a member of NATO or the EU does not mean it is necessary to avoid contacts with states that are not included in those international organizations,Ž like Russia.

Billy Graham, dubbed Americas PastorŽ and the Protestant Pope,Ž died Wednesday at his North Carolina home at age 99 after achieving a level of influence and reach no other evangelist is likely ever to match.More than anyone else, the magnetic, Hollywood-handsome Graham built evangelicalism into a force that rivaled liberal Protestantism and Roman Catholicism in the United States.He transformed the tent revival into an event that filled football arenas, and reached the masses by making pioneering use of TV in prosperous postwar America. By his final crusade in 2005, he had preached in person to more than 210 million people worldwide.All told, he was the most widely heard Christian evangelist in modern history.Graham is a major his-torical figure, not merely to American evangelicals, but to American Christianity in general,Ž said Bill Leonard, a professor at Wake Forest University Divinity School in North Carolina. Graham was the closest thing to a national Protestant chaplain that the U.S. has ever had.ŽA tall figure with swept-back hair, blue eyes and a strong jaw, Graham was a commanding presence in the pulpit with a powerful baritone voice. His catchphrase: The Bible says...ŽDespite his international renown, he would be the first to say his message was not complex or unique. But he won over audiences with his friendliness, humility and unyielding religious conviction.He had an especially strong influence on the religion and spirituality of American presidents, starting with Dwight Eisen-hower, whom he urged to run for office and baptized at the White House. George W. Bush credited Graham with helping him transform himself from carousing, hard-drinking oilman to born-again Christian family man.William Franklin Graham Jr. wasnt always so skilled. After World War II, as an evangelist in the U.S. and Europe with Youth for Christ, he was dubbed the Preaching WindmillŽ for his arm-swinging and rapid-fire speech.His first meeting with a U.S. president, Harry Truman, was a disaster. Wearing a pastel suit and loud tie that he would later say made him look like a vaudeville performer, the preacher, unfamiliar with protocol, told reporters what he had discussed with Truman, then posed for photos.But those were early stumbles on his path to fame and influence.His first White House visit with Lyndon Johnson, scheduled to last only min-utes, stretched to several hours. He urged Gerald Ford to pardon Richard Nixon and supported Jimmy Carter on the SALT disarmament treaty. He stayed at the White House with George H.W. Bush on the eve of the first Persian Gulf War.His presidential ties proved problematic when his close friend Nixon resigned in the Watergate scandal in 1974, leaving Graham devastated, embarrassed and baffled.Later, tapes released in 2002 caught the preacher telling Nixon that Jews dont know how I really feel about what theyre doing to this country.ŽAmericas Pastor diesEvangelist Billy Graham begins his sermon at Atlanta in 1994. Graham, who transformed American religious life through his preaching and activism, becoming a counselor to presidents and the most widely heard Christian evangelist in history, has died. He was 99. [JOHN BAZEMORE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] Carol Seagle, a toxicology analyst with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), told jurors a blood sample taken about 3 hours and 45 minutes after the crash, when authorities obtained a warrant to draw Shirahs blood, was at about 0.078 percent blood alcohol content. The legal limit is 0.08. She also gave testimony that the content likely would have been between 0.09 percent and 0.14 percent at the time crash.Several hearings leading up to the trial dealt with the use of retrograde extrapolationŽ of the blood samples to determine Shi-rahs intoxication at the time of the crash. Defense attorney Carin Bennett called her own indepen-dent forensic toxicologist, Barry Funk, to counter FDLEs findings.Funk told the jury he wouldnt trust the findings of the retrograde extrapolationŽ because too many factors were not taken into account, including med-ical history, injuries and medicine ingested.All things have to be taken into consideration with retrograde extrapo-lation,Ž Funk said. You cant count them out as factors. It makes a dif-ference to conclude what alcohol content wouldve been at the time of the incident.ŽBasford, however, used Funks own calculation sheet to demonstrate for the jury that Shirah had about seven drinks in his system at the time of crash. By the end of his testimony, Funk agreed with Basford that the blood drawn at the hospital an hour after the crash amounted to 0.125 percent alcohol content.The crash happened about 12:30 a.m. after witnesses reported being sideswiped on U.S. 231 by a black F-150 that then sped away onto Pinetree Road. The witness, Wil-liam Futch, testified that he followed the truck as it approached the intersec-tion with John Pitts Road, where it plowed into the side of a van with enough force to eject one of the vans passengers into a nearby ditch.Beer cans were scattered around the area where the truck containing Shirah and his girlfriend, Kristun Nichole Tullier, had overturned. Tullier also was taken to a hospital, where doctors noted she smelled of alcohol and had a seat belt injury to her right arm. Her blood draw indicated she had a blood alcohol content of 0.145 percent, doctors told the jury.Two of the five softball players in the van „ Anthony Gouge and Young „ died immediately. William Gouge and Martin later died at a local hospital. The vans driver, Craig A. Jackson, 31, of London, Ohio, later was released after treat-ment for critical injuries.The team had just left a game at H.G. Harders Park as part of the World Sports League World Softball Championships, and the five teammates were headed to their hotel room.Shirah previously turned down a plea agreement of 40 years in prison. Its unclear whether he will testify. His trial is expected to conclude today after the defense rests and both sides give closing arguments.

** A6 Thursday, February 22, 2018 | The News HeraldWRITE TO US: Letters should not exceed 300 words and include the writers name, address and phone number for veri“ cation. Letters may be edited for clarity and brevity. Guest columns of up to 600 words may be submitted as well. Write: Letters to the editor, The News Herald, 501 W. 11th St., Panama City, FL 32401 Email: pcnhletters@pcnh.com After watching the Sunday morning talk shows its painfully obvious to me that the tragedy in Parkland was quickly co-opted by agendaimpaired politicians. Remember never let a good crisis go to wasteŽ? This is going to produce the same results as previous campus shootings; people will quickly divide into two camps, will again start calling the other side names and the fundraising letters with specious arguments and tortured definitions will hit the mail. The double tragedy is not a single solution I heard suggested by the talking heads on Sunday would solve this problem and most would face enormous hurdles both in Congress and the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, the next deranged or just plain evil loser is huddled somewhere plotting how he can get a larger body count. I say if you have a shark problem, you can either eliminate every shark in the ocean or you can just install a shark net. What if therewere something we could do here in Bay County that in about four weeks would inoculate our schools from ever suffering such a tragedy? Rather than tilting at windmills,Ž we could take concrete and immediate steps to make it at least as hard to get a weapon into our schools as it is to get one into the Panama City airport. We could do this without any federal guidance, assistance or interference. All it would take is three simple actions by the Bay District School Board: 1. Ensure access-control fences exist around all Bay District Schools; if not, immediately let emergency contracts to install them. 2. Create robust access control point(s) at these fences to screen entry onto school grounds. Move armed resource officers to those access points to search everyone trying to gain entry for weapons. Lock the gates once classes start andthen move those resource officers back into the hallways. 3. During the school day anyone needing access to school grounds would have to be met by, searched by and escorted in by a resource officer. I note in the Sunday Viewpoints section that Bay District Superintendent Husfelt pointed out that we pay 100 percentof the cost of resource deputy funding and that were doing the best we can with what weve been given.Ž To that I say please point to any item in your annual budget that the people who elected you believe is more important than preventing the murder of a dozen or more of our students. To help during the transition a group of background-checked, physically fit, civilian volunteers to assist the resource officers could be quickly formed, I volunteer.Jim Robicheaux Panama CityLETTER TO THE EDITORIf spreading rumors is your point, why dont you come right out and say it? Some squallers apparently believe they have a monopoly on thought in this country. They dont and we do still have freedom of speech. So proud of Parkland HS students. Idea that violence in videos and movies cause gun shootings is ludicrous. Children in Australia, Europe, Asia watch same items too, but they dont have mass shootings. The Back Beach bypass road is a good idea, but we need a freeway-style road, not a parkway. As a school employee, I saw teachers afraid to stop fist fights! Yes, lawsuits follow them around like shadows!SQUALL LINE ANOTHER VIEWWhen a regional task force was charged with recommending a plan for relieving traffic on Interstate 75, state officials encouraged it to look at building a new cross-state highway that would provide a connector between Tampa and Jacksonville and pass through Alachua and Marion counties. Using what it called guiding principlesŽ „ conservation, countryside, communities and corridors „ the 21-member task force recommended against building a new highway through the region, and instead urged the state to expand I-75, as well as U.S. 301 and 41, and implement safety steps such as truck-only and express lanes. It took two years of meetings and public hearings for the task force to reach that conclusion and issue its report to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Gov. Rick Scott in early 2017. Then came Hurricane Irma, which led to the biggest evacuation in Florida history and caused massive traffic tie-ups along I-75. A state House of Representatives task force that met in the hurricanes wake urged extending the Suncoast Parkway from Hernando County to the Georgia line, and FDOT is once again resurrecting the idea of a new highway from Citrus County through Alachua and Marion counties to Jacksonville. The day will come when population growth, continued tourism expansion and increasing freight movement will demand new highways hereabouts. But it is those circumstances, not a single seminal event like the Irma evacuation, that should drive any decision to build a major highway through what is largely rural, agricultural regions of North Florida. Building such a road would not only be costly and impact sensitive wetlands and waterways like the Withlacoochee River and Rainbow Springs and tens of thousands of acres of current farmlands and open greenspace, but it would undoubtedly change the character of entire communities. The task forces recommendation to enhance existing roads is a serious and substantive start that deserves a chance. U.S. 301 from Marion County to Jacksonville is far from capacity, and U.S. 41 from Citrus County to Lake City is also under-utilized. Enhancements to I-75, statistically one of the states most dangerous highways, are also prudent moves that can be achieved more economically and more quickly than a massive highway project. FDOT has been up front about its vision that a new road is inevitable in the distantŽ future. As Floridas population grows, we have no doubt such a highway will be needed. But the fact that all 21 members of the task force voted unanimously against building a new highway now indicates the citizenry wants to preserve as much of our existing lifestyle and quality of life as possible for a long as possible. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Ocala StarBanner, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse MediaOUR VIEWNew highway not yet neededWidespread displeasure with Donald Trump and his party bodes well for Democrats in November. They have a good chance of retaking the House and a decent one of winning a Senate majority. But to get there, they must be smart. And being smart includes attracting Republicans repelled by Trump. Theres not going to be a third party anytime soon, as much as many centrists crave one. But Democrats can serve as a haven for independents and appalled Republicans wanting options other than the moral wreckage thats become the GOP. At least in 2018. For patriotic conservatives (and others), defending American institutions and norms now takes precedence over winning on this or that policy initiative. This is a time of crisis. In a stroke of good luck or hard work, Democrats have enlisted six former federal prosecutors, candidates schooled in the rule of law, to run for House seats. The crude populism practiced by Trump is all over the ideological map, though in his case, its mainly words. Trump hollers sweet nothings to the working class while in practice shoveling the nations wealth to the wealthiest few. The working peoples losses will continue to mount, starting with the health care security that Trump promised to preserve but is now helping kill. This was bait and switch, big-time. Tax cuts and spending that explode deficits are not conservative, and real conservatives know it. Trump worlds piggish conduct, meanwhile, repels traditionalists. The resistance from right-of-what-used-to-becenter makes never-Trump Republicans the most interesting and principled voices in todays politics. In any case, they should be mindful that the BernieHillary divide was largely manufactured. Candidate Bernie Sanders certainly sounded more radical than Hillary Clinton, but on the issues, they werent far apart at all. Trump does seem to be retaining high approval among party members in general, but there are fewer behind them. Republican-leaning independents are up for grabs. Many who used to call themselves Republican leaners have dropped the RepublicanŽ altogether and now simply identify as independents. Some Democratic politicians err in thinking that moving decisively left to win over the so-called base is the way to go. Its not. Democrats are better off appealing to growing masses of independent-minded voters „ certainly if they want the party to win outside its regional strongholds. In any case, they should be mindful that the BernieHillary divide was largely manufactured. Candidate Bernie Sanders certainly sounded more radical than Hillary Clinton, but on the issues, they werent far apart at all. Its hard to imagine any lefty not understanding the necessity of defeating Trump, but undoubtedly some were sucked into the con. (Or they werent worried about their health care.) Voters of all persuasions can agree on the evils of rampant corruption, chaotic foreign policy, environmental degradation and cultural debasement. But Democrats have to develop a coherent stance on immigration that says, Our determination to protect the dreamers does not mean we dont want immigration laws enforced going forward.Ž Sanders, by the way, is quite moderate on this issue, understanding that lower-skilled American workers need protection from unfair competition. The country desperately needs a massive rejection of what Trump and his Republican enablers have wrought. Whether voting for Democrats in November is a one-time deal for disaffected Republicans remains to be seen. But they should do it for all of us, and Democrats must help them.

To register, call 850-474-2528 or visit www.sbdc.uwf.edu News Herald staff reportJeff WilsonBloombergFor the first time in 35 years, soybeans are poised to steal the crown of U.S. crop king from corn.American farmers are set to increase their soy plantings to a record 90.69 million acres, according to the average esti-mate in a Bloomberg survey of 21 trading firms and analysts. Corn sowings are forecast to drop to 90.12 million. The last time soy surpassed corn was 1983, when government payments were based on idling acres.If it feels like we've been here before, you'd be right. This time last year analysts were expecting the great soy-bean steal to happen because the crop was already offering better premiums. And while growers did sow more of the oilseed than ever before, the plantings came in just shy of matching corn as temperate weather favored the grain.So what's different this year? Drought.About 16 percent of the corn belt is already experiencing drought conditions, with more dry weather forecast into the start of the growing season. Soybeans, wheat and cotton are all more drought-tolerant than corn.Prices are also still favoring soybeans, with futures for this year's crop trading about 2.5 times higher than corn con-tracts. This is the fifth straight year that the oilseed is offering better returns.After years of depressed crop prices, those premiums are more important than ever „ just ask Julie Burgod. The 52-year-old farms 4,500 acres and raises calves near Ipswich, South Dakota, with her husband and son. They already plan to slash corn acres in half to make way for soybeans, because the grain "doesn't pay the bills." Burgod also owns a crop insurance agency and said many of her clients are echoing the sentiment."Soybeans are king, and corn is queen," Burgod said. "We also are skittish about the dry soils coming into 2018."The U.S. Department of Agriculture will release its first planting estimates for the season at its annual out-look conference that begins Thursday in Arlington, Virginia.Dry weather is most acute in the northern Great Plains. In North Dakota, drought conditions cover 65 percent of the state, compared with zero last year, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.The arid soils are limiting planting options, according to Jim Diepolder, a farmer and seed and farm-chemical dealer near Willow City, North Dakota. The conditions reduce the chances of corn crops generating the yields needed for farmers to break even. Barley is also less attractive after a string of bumper crops boosted inventories, prompting beer companies to cut supply contracts.Soybeans could dethrone corn as top U.S. crop Soybeans are harvested with a combine harvester in Princeton, Ill. [DANIEL ACKRE/BLOOMBERG] By Christopher RugaberAP Economics WriterWASHINGTON „ U.S. sales of existing homes fell in January from a year earlier by the most in more than three years. Would-be buyers were stymied by rising prices and a shortage of homes for sale.The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday that sales dropped 3.2 percent from December to January, the second straight monthly decline, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.38 million. That was the slowest sales pace since September.Compared with 12 months earlier, sales dropped 4.8 percent „ the steepest year-over-year decline since August 2014.A lack of available homes is holding back sales, even as Realtors report that more people are visiting open houses and demand is strong. The total supply of homes for sale dipped to 1.52 million, the fewest for any January since records began in 1999.The low inventory levels are a legacy of a decade of boom and bust in U.S. housing. Many investors bought homes at low prices during the housing bust and are now renting them out rather than selling.And the Realtors' group said many homeowners are reluctant to sell at a time of rising mortgage rates because they would have to pay a higher rate on a new house, a phenomenon known as "rate lock."The average 30-year fixed mortgage rate reached 4.38 percent last week, the highest in almost four years. While that is still a historically low rate, for many homeowners it is much higher than their cur-rent mortgage rate.January's sales stem from contracts that were signed in November or December, so they don't reflect the sharp jump in mortgage rates since the begin-ning of the year. The average 30-year fixed was just below 4 percent in early January.US home sales fall by most in 3 yearsAkwasi Frimpong, of Ghana, starts his practice run during the mens skeleton training at the 2018 Winter Olympics on Feb. 14 in Pyeongchang, South Korea. [WONG MAYE-E/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Anick JesdanunThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ When it comes to the Olympics, too much choice can paralyze you with indecision. With five television channels, online streaming, virtual reality and Snapchat, where do you even start?Catch curling on the USA Network, and you might miss that superb „ or disastrous „ figure skating routine that will be talked about on social media and in the office. Tune into a stream of figure skating, and you might miss that medal-winning run down the slopes.With an event as sprawling as the Olympics, sometimes the straight-up linear TV broadcast is best, even if youre watching that online. Experts make the choices for you; all you have to do is lean back on your couch.Thats not to say alternatives to the main NBC broadcast are pointless. Die-hard fans of biathlon can choose that and nothing else. Snapchat users who might have skipped the Olympics entirely might at least catch the few minutes of live video offered there each day.NBCs websites and apps let you catch up on what you missed „ though with more than 175 hours of programming on the main channel alone, catching up might have to wait until after the games end.Among the online standouts:€ THE GOLD: Online streaming brings equality.NBC focuses heavily on Americans and a handful of medal contenders from other countries in popular sports. To see otherwiseobscure athletes, youll have to catch one of the online streams. Every event is being shownin its entiretyonline, complete with graphics, slow-motion replays and commentary from the International Olympic Committees Olympic Broadcasting Ser-vices. It feels like a broadcast „justnot an American-cen-tric one.€ THE SILVER: Virtual reality offers alternative perspectives.The 30 events in VR work better as a behind-thescenes companion than as a replacement for television. For instance, after an athlete starts sliding down the skeleton track, you see crews with brooms fixing the ice for the next competitor. With figure skating, you can linger at the kiss and cryŽ area as competitors wait for their scores; television typically cuts to replays.€ THE BRONZE: Apps let you personalize.If you enjoy watching skiers and snowboarders fall „ justadmitit, you do „ Comcasts Xfinity Stream app can give you clip after clip oftumbles and face plants. Likewise, you can get clips of just upsets or thrilling finishes. Comcast also organizes video by sport and selected athletes. Hulus live-TV service lets you pick your favorite sports, although its offerings arent as extensive as Comcasts. For everyone else, NBCs app gives you plenty of ways to drill down. You can also cus-tomize phone notifications by sport or selected athletes.How, then, is broadcast better?For one thing, watching online takes work. With luge and skeleton, for instance, it takes five hours to watch all four runs down the track „ longer if you add training runs. Theres no easy way to jump straight to an athlete who isnt prominent, such as the lone competitor from the tropical country of Ghana. The ability to jump to any athlete is limited to figure skating and some alpine skiing events.As for VR, you might feel as though youre in an Olym-pic arena or on a mountain, but only television can offer close-ups with its zoom cameras. Less is moreWhy the Olympics broadcast beats the online experience

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday also arrested a 13-year-old Pryor Middle School student in a third incident there.In all three cases, the students had made threats to carry out violence against other students or teachers. Police did not find concrete plans or weapons during any of the investigations, but Bay District Schools Chief Safety and Security Officer Mike Jones on Wednesday stressed that the district takes all threats from stu-dents, children and even from outside the school, seriously and investigates them thor-oughly.

We had better keep up with it,Ž said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross Jr., a member of the newly revived space council. Thanks to impressive eventsŽ like SpaceXs test flight of its new Falcon Heavy rocket earlier this month, which hoisted the Tesla sports car and its mannequin driver, the United States is the leader in space once again,Ž Ross said.Not only did the rocket send Elon Musks Roadster roaring toward Mars „ Musk runs SpaceX as well as the electric car company „ two of its first-stage boosters landed back at Cape Canaveral for further recycling.Very impressive, indeed,Ž Pence, the councils chairman, told the crowd of more than 300 at Kennedy Space Center.SpaceXs launch came up repeatedly during the two-hour session held in the building once used to prep pieces of the International Space Station. Besides the lucrative busi-ness of launching satellites, many of the nations aerospace companies are looking to capitalize with their own orbiting labs and tourist stops, asteroid mining camps, lunar bases and more.Astronauts, aerospace leaders and NASA officials joined members of Congress and President Donald Trumps Cabinet for this second meeting of the council. Two moonwalkers were on hand: Apollo 11s Buzz Aldrin and Apollo 17s Harrison Schmitt.The Trump administration is pushing to get Americans back to the moon, a half-century after NASAs Apollo heydays. The new budget proposal unveiled by the White House last week emphasizes lunar exploration, while urging NASA to turn the International Space Station over to private businesses in 2025.Pence wants US businesses trailblazing into space

** B4 Thursday, February 22, 2018 | The News Heraldleading to a few close calls when the girls tried to grab their jackets before school.Later Wednesday, at Tommy Smith Elementary School, Figueroa and his wife Adlin, along with their youngest daughter Jahzara, found themselves crouching behind a bookcase. Their three older daughters had been taken out of class and told they had a den-tist appointment, and all three were very confused as to why they were being led to the library.That is, until Figueroa popped up from behind the bookcase. Then there were tears, lots of them.I was like, Oh my gosh, I cant believe he came! Ž said 9-year-old Alanis. I cant believe he lied to me!ŽFigueroa spent the last year in South Korea, deploying in February 2017 and coming home only briefly in August. His first deployment was almost a decade ago, when he spent six months in Iraq and six months in South Korea. While deployment can be difficult for the military parent, he said its hardest on the spouse left behind, who has to fill the roles of both parents.For me, it was easy. Wake up, go to the gym, do my things,Ž he said. But she (Adlin) had to do everything. I couldnt do this without her. Shes got my back. Shes always there to support us.ŽWhile he had been looking forward to the reunion for six months, Figueroa said he was more nervous than everŽ to rejoin his family Wednesday. That was OK, though, because Alanis had a whole itin-erary picked out for them.I want to go everywhere with him,Ž she said. I just want to explore with him where I went with my mom. I want to go with him to the zoo. Just, I want to go everywhere with him.ŽBut first, they all had to make a real trip to the dentist. DADFrom Page B1to shoot up the school so often over the past year, it had become commonplace. They also said Burke had drawn a detailed blueprint of the school with notes on it that revealed his intention to put bombs in certain classrooms and shoot the students inside others.Investigators learned that Burke was known on campus to point his fingers like a gun, aim at others, make shooting noises, and then say Head shot.Ž According to students, Burke prom-ised his friends If I do it, I wouldn't do it to you.ŽBCSO reported Burke initially denied having any plans or making any statements with regard to conducting a shooting at the school. However, Burke did state he had been watching the media coverage of the shoot-ing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, and believed 'it was no big deal,'Ž BCSO wrote. He also reportedly admitted to making jokes about shooting other stu-dents at Rosenwald and to making the statement Keep talking, I'll bring something to the school and show you whats up,Ž in the context of a shooting at school.Investigators reported Burke also admitted to making drawings but said they were based on the video game Grand Theft Auto.ŽA consent search at Burke's residence resulted in no firearms or explosive materials.We appreciate the fact this teacher came forward to report what he overheard,Ž Sheriff Tommy Ford said. As well as the willingness of these stu-dents to speak out about their concerns. This kind of partnership allows us to effectively work to prevent a similar tragedy in our community.ŽOn Wednesday, BCSO investigated a similar incident at Bay High School. Student Dalton Capps, 14, was arrested after another student reported him making threats that he intended to shoot other students, accord-ing to a BCSO report. The other student reportedly told the school resource deputy she was concerned about Capps and some statements he had made that he planned to come to the school and shoot other students. Capps also drew his finger across his throat indicating he was going to cut the throats of other students or shoot them, the student said.BCSO reported Capps admitted to saying he was going to shoot up the school, using his hand to symbolize a gun and shootingŽ at students and using his finger as a knifeŽ to indicate he would slash student's throats. Capps stated he felt it was funny and was only joking. A consent search of his residence resulted in no access to firearms, BCSO reported. Both Burke and Capps were charged with making a false report concerning use of a fire-arm in a violent manner, a second-degree felony.Okaloosa police on Tuesday night charged the 13-year-old Pryor student with making a threat to kill or do bodily harm after he reportedly sent a social media post that said I want to shoot a school.ŽThe image sent through Snapchat consisted of a photo of an M4 assault rifle with the words, I would kill people, I wanna shoot a school and round 2 of Florida,Ž OCSO reported.The boy said he was playing a joke, he did not have any specific school in mind and did not mean anything by it, hisarrest report said. The suspect said he took the image of the weapon from Google images.The Snapchat post reportedly was sent as a group post, but one of the receivers reported it.Jones commended stu-dents and the teacher for following the see some-thing, say somethingŽ protocol. He said that for the most part, it's the students who help law enforcement the most when it comes to track-ing down threats.It takes courage to put your friendship on the line for the safety of their classmates,Ž Jones said. I applaud them.Ž ARRESTSFrom Page B1 Miguel Figueroa surprises his children at Tommy Smith Elementary School by returning home early from Korea on Wednesday.

[JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD]Participants gained advice about officials use of cooperative programs, dynamic segmentation, custom targeted emails and other marketing strategies to promote Panama City Beach. They also got to mingle and meet with area sports and events sponsors and producers.This event is also ben-eficial for event planners to collaborate with each other, gaining tools and resources to better strengthen their future events,Ž Feeney said.Sports and events are now a part of Panama City Beachs DNA, said Richard Sanders, Visit PCBs vice president of sports market-ing and special events.The city already hosts myriad volleyball, softball, golf and other tourna-ments, bringing in visitors outside the beach tourism sector. The sports park is expected to further elevate the citys sport tourism appeal.The workshop also intro-duced new social media strategies. Jody Farrar of Chute, a visual marketing platform that helps brands develop marketing solutions, reviewed social media platforms that are key in marketing to certain audiences.Facebook, Instagram and YouTube are at the very top because they are very visual,Ž Farrar said.Katja Chatfield seemed to soak up what officials had to offer. The Beachside Resort general manager attended the seminar to get a better idea of what events would be coming to the area, as she prepares the resort for visitors.After Farrars presentation, Chatfield said she was thinking more about her teams marketing plans.We have a pretty aggressive marketing team,Ž she said. I never checked out YouTube. We can probably put up a fun video about the hotel. Mar-keting is changing quickly.

** B6 Thursday, February 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Tom McLaughlin315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn tmclaughlin@nwfdailynews.comNICEVILLE „ Amidwifes license to practice has been suspended after the death of a newborn in her care.Cynthia Denbow, an advanced registered nurse practitioner employed by Gentle Birth Options, has been restricted from delivering or assisting in the delivery of infants and faces a formal disciplineŽ proceeding to determine the fate of her license, a state document shows.The document, an order of emergency restriction of licenseŽ dated Feb. 16 from the Florida Department of Health, states Denbow failed to take proper action after learning a child whose birth she was overseeing had breeched in the womb, then lied to cover up her mistakes, the report said.The child, a boy identified only as F.R., did not have a heartbeat when he was born. An autopsy showed the deceleration of the infants heart beat and the breech birth were responsible for his death.Ms. Denbows failure to meet the minimum standard of care directly contributed to F.R.s tragic death,Ž the report said.After the death, a neurologist told the childs mother she was familiar with Ms. Denbow and over the course of three years has seen patients brought to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center after Ms. Denbow attempted to perform dangerous and high risk deliveries at the birthing center resulting in fetal morbidity,Ž the report said.Reached by phone at Gentle Birth Options, 296 Bayshore Drive in Niceville, Denbow acknowledged she is abiding by the Florida Department of Heath restrictions placed upon her.Of course I cant talk about an open investigation,Ž said Denbow, who referred questions to Jack-sonville attorney Christine Whitney. Whitney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.Department of Health spokesman Brad Dalton said Denbow is entitled to continue to work as an ARNP as long as she adheres to the restrictions of the order filed against her. He said there have been no previous public complaints filed against Denbow, and no past dis-ciplinary action appears on her license.The report filed by the Department of Health states that the infant's mother, identified as Patient A.R.Ž began labor on the morning of Dec. 7, 2017,and informed Denbowjust before 4 p.m. that the labor was progressing.Almost three hours later,Ž the report notes, Denbow responded to notify the prospective mother to check in. No fur-ther instruction was given. The mother-to-be and her husband arrived at Gentle Birth Options at 10:37 p.m. Denbow did not perform an examination at that time.Patient A.R. ... observed that Ms. Denbow appeared distracted and disinterested in assisting (her) in the delivery process,Ž the report said.It was almost midnight before Denbow performed a vaginal examination and noted that the baby was in a breech position, the report said.The minimum standard of care requires a midwife to immediately transfer a patient in breech position to a higher level of care,Ž the report said. It adds that Denbow encouraged (the patient) to continue the delivery at the birthing center.ŽDenbow also continued to encourage the patient to push with contractions,Ž the report said.The decision was finally made about 12:30 a.m. to take the mother in labor to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Denbow was unable to answer a physi-cians basic questions about the stage of the mothers labor, the report said.It also says Denbow lied about whether she had advised the mother to push with contractions, attempted to write addendumsŽ into Patient A.Rs medical records and suggested follow-ing the childs death that he might have died from complications of sickle cell anemia.The report cites as failures of proper nursing protocol Denbows failure to perform a vaginal exami-nation in a timely fashion, failure to immediately refer the motherto the hospital when she learned the child was in breech position and instructing the mother to continue pushing with contractions even though she knew the baby was in breech position.It states she demonstrated unprofessional conduct by inaccurately recording details of the birth.Ms. Denbows continued unrestricted practice as a nurse constitutes an immediate, serious danger to the health safety or welfare of the citizens of the state of Florida,Ž the report concludes.Niceville midwife disciplined following death of infant PANAMA CITYPanama City native earns Blue Angels crestA Bay County native recently earned a Blue Angels crest.Derrious Austin, from Panama City, was pre-sented the crest by Cmdr.

** The News Herald | Thursday, February 22, 2018 B7By Katie PohlmanGatehouse Media FloridaOCALA „ Trays of lettuce, broccoli, spinach, rosemary and three types of mint seedlings float in an orange kiddie pool filled with water and dotted with pink, blue and green cartoon mermaids behind Francis Marion Military Academy.A few feet away, pairs of students in matching black shirts and tan cargo pants dump blocks of coco fiber into round blue storage tubs. As water is added to the tubs, stu-dents massage the blocks, made from coconut husks, until they resemble fluffy, dark-brown soil. This pro-cess is called rehydration, which prepares the fiber to be placed into a VertiGro hydroponic growing system that promises greater yields in less time with fewer resources.Tim Carpenter said he developed and patented VertiGro in 1994 after he realized he could not make money using old hydroponic methods. Now, the system of stackable pots is used in schools, prisons, small farms, gardens and Caribbean islands.Each tower consists of a base pot with four rotating pots stacked above, allowing users to grow 20 plants per tower. Systems can consist of one tower for the hobbyist, 44 towers for the military academy, or even a 5-acre greenhouse in Puerto Rico.The whole thing was to save space and energy,Ž said Carpenter, who was named the Florida Associa-tion of County Agriculture Agents Marion County outstanding agriculturist in 2017.The military academys system is split in half: one side for harvesting and the other for planting. A stu-dent walks around holding a tray of broccoli seedlings with one hand while he uses the other to push a hole in the fiber with his finger. He then drops the seedling in and moves on.Students work in the garden at the academy as part of biology class with Thomas Allison. They decide what to plant and how much to plant. The students are in charge of estimating the cost of materials and potential yield.According to Carpenter, Allison got grants for all the greenhouse and VertiGro systems at Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks and just recently got a new position at Francis Marion Military Academy.ŽWhen Allison first intro-duced the idea of a VertiGro garden to the military academy, others thought the students wouldnt like it. But they love it.Allison said the students will sometimes pull a tomato or pepper off the plants and eat it.Id rather see that than (students) walking around with bags of chips,Ž he said.Other students will take parts of the harvest home to their families. Teachers do the same.Harvesting from the towers is as easy as snip, turn and repeat.Carpenter said he can harvest 100 pounds of tomatoes „ most as big as baseballs „ from one tower. He harvests so much he gives them away to whomever stops by his operation in Summerfield.David Holmes, Marion County director for the University of Floridas extension office, said VertiGro is important in figuring out how to feed a growing global population.The good lands are being taken for development,Ž he said. We have to figure out how to feed more people with less land input.ŽGrowth industryTim Carpenter, owner of VertiGro in south Marion County, patented the system that grows plants in vertical towers. [DOUG ENGLE/GATEHOUSE MEDIA FLORIDA] Florida man uses own hydroponic system to teach gardeningBy Wendy Victora315-4478 |@WendyV wvictora@nwfdailynews.comFlorida has garnered another No. 1 ranking in an online list, this one less than flattering.WalletHub designated Florida as the most sinful state in the nation in a recently released survey.The Sunshine State narrowly edged out California for the top spot. It measured categories including anger and hatred, jealousy, excesses and vices, greed, lust, vanity and laziness, according to the website.Florida was ranked No. 1 in jealousy, No. 4 rank in vanity, No. 7 in laziness and No. 8 in lust.The study used data ranging from crime rates and health data to Google searches and other mea-sures of how Floridians spend their free time.For example, to measure anger and hatred, the survey studied violent crime, bullying, hate crimes, sex offenders, number of mistreated children, hostile Internet comments and the number of mass shootings, as well as other factors.Jealousy was rated using data about thefts per capita and identity theft.Under the excesses and vice category, obe-sity, smoking rates, drug overdose deaths and alcohol use were studied, as well as the number of fast-food restaurants per capita.Greed took into account the number of casinos and percentage of the population with gambling disorders.Lust included data about the teen birth rate, the number of times Flo-ridians used Google to search for XXX enter-tainment and the average time spent on adult enter-tainment sites.Vanity measured the number of beauty salons per capita, Google searches for plastic surgery and the amount of money per household spent on personal care products and services.Laziness included data about the number of adults not exercising, average weekly hours worked, volunteer rate, daily time spent watching TV, high school graduation rates and the share of youth not attending school.The least sinful states in the country were Maine, North Dakota and Vermont, which is in the No. 50 spot.The full survey can be found at wallethub.com.Florida tops most sinful states listUnder the excesses and vice category, obesity, smoking rates, drug overdose deaths and alcohol use were studied as well as the number of fast-food restaurants per capita.

** By Steve MegargeeAP Sports WriterKNOXVILLE, Tenn. „ Grant Williams bounced back from one of his worst performances of the season to score 23 points and No. 19 Tennessee beat Florida 62-57 on Wednesday night to hand the Gators their third con-secutive loss.Williams had a seasonlow five points Saturday in a 73-62 loss at Georgia. The Tennessee scoring leader responded Wednesday by shooting 8 of 13 from the floor and 7 of 8 from the foul line.Florida trailed nearly the whole way, but threatened in the final minute.Chris Chiozza made a basket to cut Tennessees lead to 60-57 with 24.5 sec-onds left, and he got fouled by Williams in the process. But Chiozza missed the ensuing free throw and couldnt get Florida any closer.Jordan Bowden made a pair of clinching free throws with 14 seconds left.Admiral Schofield had 16 points and eight rebounds for Tennessee (20-7, 10-5 Southeastern Conference).

While Rutherford fans have grown accustomed to win streaks and 20-win seasons under coach Rhondie Ross leader-ship, the coach said this group has surpassed almost all of his preseason expectations.Absolutely,Ž he said Tuesday. Im not going to lie to you. I did not expect us to have a 16-game winning streak. Did I expect us to be in the position were in right now in terms of hosting the first of the playoffs?

Harper also had six assists.Okeke, who figures to be a key figure on replacing McLemore, scored 13 points in the second half and finished with a career-high.

** C2 Thursday, February 22, 2018 | The News HeraldThe Associated PressTALL AHASSEE „ Florida State pitcher Tyler Holton will miss the remainder of the season due to an elbow injury.The junior left-hander will undergo Tommy John Surgery on Thursday. He felt muscle tightness during the Seminoles Feb. 16 opener against Xavier and left during the fifth inning. He allowed just one hit in 4 ‡ innings.Holton was a first-team All-America selection last season. He posted a 10-3 record and 144 strikeouts as the Seminoles advanced to the College World Series.Florida State (4-0) is ranked third going into a three-game weekend series against Troy. Coach Mike Martin is 28 wins away from passing Audie Garrido (1,975 victories) to become college baseballs winningest manager.Florida States top pitcher to miss season Auburn took command with a 1 7-2 run after having its lead cut to one early in the second half.Sexton made 8 of 12 shots for the Tide, but other top scorers struggled.John Petty, who had eight 3-pointers and 27 points in the Tides January win, missed his first eight attempts and fin-ished with three points.Donta Hall came in hot but had just seven points and five rebounds. BIG PICTURE Alabama: Had won five straight games over ranked teams and could have made a big statement for the NCAA Tournament. Came into the game giving up a league-best 65.6 points in SEC games.Auburn: Moved a step closer to clinching its third SEC title and first since 1999. Game had to be a con-fidence builder for players like Malik Dunbar and fresh-men Okeke and Michell. AUBURNFrom Page C1Yes, I thought we could win the district. But as far as winning 16 games in a row and all that, no, I did not expect this.ŽThe Rams have outscored their opponents by 19.1 points per game during the streak, though they have also been tested with hard-fought wins over 8A foes Leon and Niceville, had a pair of tough district battles with Mosley, as well as home victories over play-offs squads Marianna and Chotawhatchee, the latter of which went to three overtimes.Ross said he hopes that those battles have helped prepare for the postseason a team that has just three players who actually played in last years region quarterfinal loss to Rickards.I think us playing a bunch of close games down the stretch helped us,Ž he said. Playing teams like Marianna and Choctaw, just being in all those close games. Mosley was a close game also. I think experience is a factor for the guys, just getting enough games under their belt so that they start playing off of instinct instead of overthinking. You hope with experience that theyll be better in those situations.ŽRutherford will get a Godby squad that was knocked off 63-53 in the District 2 championship game by rival Rickards and is just 3-6 in the last nine games. That doesnt mean the Cougars pose no threat to the Rams, with Ross saying that their quickness and aggres-siveness, led by 5-foot-8 junior point guard Tava-ris King, are reminiscent of great Godby teams of the past.Theyre not as big as they have been in the last few years,Ž he said, but its a typical Godby team in that they com-pete extremely hard, they test your toughness, and theyre going to be relent-less in coming at you.ŽThe lightning-quick King is the catalyst for the Cougars attack and Ross said the Rams will have to work hard to contain his dribble penetration.Hes a very explosive scorer that puts a lot of pressure on you,Ž he said. He can hit jump shots, but he lives in the paint. He can get you in foul trouble and make plays for other people, but he can score. Weve got to contain (King) as much as we can. We want him to see a lot of Rutherford jerseys when he has the ball.ŽRoss said the biggest keys for his team will be limiting turnovers against the aggressive Godby defensive pressure and limiting the Cougars second-chance opportunities with defensive rebounding. Beyond Xs and Os, the coach said he is confident his players will be ready to play with the energy and aggressiveness necessary to win and advance in the playoffs.I expect my kids to compete at a high level,Ž he said. They know the stakes are high and its win or go home. If were fortunate to win, well get to host another game at home. We had a good day of practice (Mo nday), so hopefully the next two days of preparation will be good and well be ready to go on Thursday.ŽWith a win, Rutherford would advance to the region semifinals Tuesday against the winner of tonights quarterfinal matchup between Bay and Rickards. Bay opens at RickardsThe Tornadoes (6-18) will head to Tallahassee for their Region 1-6A opener against the Dis-trict 2 champion Raiders (19-7), who earned home court for the quarterfinal matchup with a 63-53 victory over Godby in their league champion-ship game.Rickards comes in riding an eight-game winning streak and looking to make it to the region semifinal round for the sixth consecutive season. Bay last made the playoffs in 2016 when it fell to Godby 75-37 in the region quarterfinals. Area schedule.

Florida hosts No. 12 Auburn, visits Alabama and hosts Kentucky in its final three regular-season games.The offensive struggles that have hindered Florida lately carried over. Florida had more turnovers (eight) than baskets (seven) during a first half in which it shot 26.9 percent over-all and 1 of 10 from 3-point range.Tennessee closed the first half on an 11-1 run to go into the locker room with a 27-18 advantage.The Vols extended the lead to 10 early in the second half, but Florida crept back into the game while Williams was on the bench with three fouls.Florida was trailing by just one point when it had two chances midway through the second half to regain the lead, but Deaundrae Ballard missed a 3-pointer on one posses-sion and Dontay Bassett missed a baseline jumper the net time the Gators had the ball.Tennessee then created some distance by going on a 7-0 run that included a Jordan B owden dunk and five points from Schofield.

** The News Herald | Thursday, February 22, 2018 C3 WINTER OLYMPICS A ROUNDUP OF WEDNESDAYS HIGHLIGHTS /// LOOKING AHEAD TO THURSDAY What to watch for todaySNOWBOARDING Womens big air “nal. It could be a U.S. sweep, as rookies Hailey Langland and Julia Marino and Sochi slopestyle gold medalist Jamie Anderson made the X Games podium between the last two years. FIGURE SKATING Womens free skate. The gold medal should come down to Russian training partners Yevgenia Medvedeva and Alina Zagitova. ALPINE SKIING Super combined. Likely will be last race for Mikaela Shiffrin at these Games and for Vonns Olympic career. Both are podium threats. Shiffrin won her only combined start last season. ROUNDUPSPEEDSKATING Mia Manganello crossed the “nish line, glanced at the videoboard and let out a yell. She then grabbed hands with American teammates Heather Bergsma and Brittany Bowe, and the trio thrust their arms in the air. The Americans had reason to celebrate Wednesday. They “nally won a long-track speedskating medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics, ending a U.S. drought for the women dating to the 2002 Salt Lake City Games. The trio earned bronze in the womens team pursuit, beating Canada by 0.45 seconds with a time of 2 minutes, 59.27 seconds. They surged to the lead before slowing near the end as the fast early pace took its toll. HOCKEY Canada advanced to the semi“nals of the Winter Olympics with a gritty 1-0 win over Finland but lost starting goaltender Ben Scrivens to an undisclosed upper-body injury. Maxim Noreaus goal 55 seconds into the third period was enough for Canada to reach Fridays semi“nal against Germany, which shocked top-seeded Sweden in overtime. Scrivens started the game, but gave way to Kevin Poulin at 4:17 of the second period after a crushing Eric ODell check sent Finnish player ”ying into the Canadian goaltender. Scrivens brie”y remained in the game, but came out at the next stoppage. CURLING A Russian curler who failed a drug test at the Pyeongchang Olympics will have his case heard Thursday. The Court of Arbitration for Sports anti-doping division says it will hear the case of mixed doubles bronze medalist Alexander Krushelnitsky at 2 p.m. local time. Krushelnitskys case has taken on extra importance since the International Olympic Committee is due to decide on whether to formally reinstate Russia for Sundays closing ceremony following a suspension for a doping scheme at Sochi. That decision would allow athletes to march under the Russian, rather than the Olympic, ”ag.The Associated Press WEDNESDAYS SPOTLIGHT MEDAL COUNTThrough Feb. 21 Country G S B T Norway 13 11 9 33 Germany 12 7 5 24 Canada 9 5 7 21 Netherlands 6 6 4 16 United States 6 4 6 16 France 5 4 5 14 OA Russia 0 4 9 13 Japan 3 5 3 11 Austria 4 2 4 10 South Korea 4 3 2 9 Italy 3 2 4 9 Sweden 4 4 0 8 Switzerland 2 5 1 8 China 0 5 2 7 Czech Republic 1 2 3 6 Britain 1 0 3 4 Finland 0 0 4 4 Slovakia 1 2 0 3 Australia 0 2 1 3 Belarus 1 1 0 2 Poland 1 0 1 2 Spain 0 0 2 2 Ukraine 1 0 0 1 Slovenia 0 1 0 1 Kazakhstan 0 0 1 1 Latvia 0 0 1 1 Liechtenstein 0 0 1 1GAMES FACESStop treating extreme sport athletes as second-class Olympians If youre addicted to sports misery, you cant just look at the United States modest Winter Olympics medal haul thus far. No, thats not depressing enough. To crank up the anguish to its max, you must turn haughty, create an antiquated tier system to rank the importance of each sport and then surmise that the Americans are even further off relevances radar. The arrogant conclusion: If you think its bad that the U.S. might “nish out of the top “ve in the medal standings despite having the largest team in Winter Olympics history, its worse when you consider it has been buoyed by kiddie-table sports such as snowboarding and freestyle skiing. And that would be a dismissive and primitive way of thinking. These Olympics shouldnt mystify American traditionalists. If anything, it should force them to accept change, embrace the evolving interests of young athletes and show gratitude that the extreme sportsŽ have kept our national ego out of intensive care. The supposed daredevil sports have accounted for seven of the countrys 14 medals. Snowboarders have captured four of the six golds. Mikaela Shiffrin was celebrated for her giant slalom gold, but the Alpine skier share the title of most impressive winning performance with shredders Chloe Kim, Red Gerard and Shaun White. And then theres Jamie Anderson, who won her second straight snowboarding slopestyle gold medal despite winds that could have ”own her back home.The Washington Post Jamanka wins Olympic g old for Germany, denying Meyers TaylorBy Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressPYEONGCHANG, South Korea „ Up in the starting area on a frigid night in the mountains, only three womens bobsled pilots remained. One was the two-time defending Olympic gold med-alist. Another was the reigning world champion. And the third was someone without a single victory of any international significance on her resume. Guess who prevailed? Womens bobsledding has a new star, and a surprise Olym-pic champion. Germanys Mariama Jamanka „ winless in 23 career top-tier starts in her sport coming into the Pyeongchang Games „ put together four nearly flawless runs on her way to winning gold at the Alpensia Sliding Center on Wednesday night, holding off Elana Meyers Taylor of the U.S. and Kaillie Humphries of Canada on her way to the medal podiums top step.I still cant believe it, that we won,Ž Jamanka said. Im absolutely over the moon.ŽJamanka and brakeman Lisa Buckwitz finished their four runs in 3 minutes, 22.45 seconds. Meyers Taylor and Lauren Gibbs of the U.S. were second in 3:22.52, the 0.07second margin the closest b etween first and second in any Olympic womens bobsled race.We made Mariama come get it,Ž said Meyers Taylor, who drove to the world title last year. And she did.ŽHumphries „ the gold medalist in 2010 and 2014 „ teamed with Phylicia George to get third in 3:22.89. As it was for Meyers Taylor, it was the third Olympic medal for Humphries.And also like Meyers Taylor, Humphries saluted the new champ afterward.She did the business,Ž Humphries said. She did it yesterday. She did it here today. She had stiff competi-tion with me and Elana, and it really shows the kind of athlete she is and the mental fortitude that she has.ŽJamanka showed absolute nerves of steel in the ultimate moment to win the 18th Olympic gold medal in German bobsled history, the second by a woman.And theres no question who the best team at the slid-ing track has been in these Pyeongchang Games. With eight of the nine events now complete in bobsled, skeleton and luge, Germany has won five golds and will be a favorite to grab yet another in the four-man event that ends on the final day of the games Sunday.Stephanie Schneider of Ger-many was fourth, and Jamie Greubel Poser of the U.S. „ the bronze medalist behind Humphries and Meyers Taylor four years ago „ took fifth.Were very proud of what we did,Ž said Aja Evans, Greu-bel Posers brakeman in both Sochi and Pyeongchang. Its still tough. Its going to be tough for a while. But we laid it all on the line, so theres zero regrets.ŽNigeria, with pilot Seun Adigun and brakewomen Akuoma Omeoga and Ngozi Onwumere „ Omeoga was ill and couldnt race Wednesday, so she was subbed out „ fin-ished last in the 20-sled field, nearly four seconds behind 19th-place Jamaica. The Nigerians were the first sled from an African nation to compete in womens bobsled at the Olympics. Their pres-ence only added to a sport that has seen no shortage of diver-sity; four of the six women who won medals Wednesday night are women of color.All we have to give is every-thing weve got,Ž Adigun said.Meyers Taylor and Jamanka were the last two sleds down the track, and the only two real remaining contenders for gold by that point.Meyers Taylor finished in 50.73 seconds, jumped out of her sled, threw her arms in the air and celebrated with Gibbs. And then everyone turned their attention to the top of the track, to see if Jamanka could pull off the win.

[PHOTOS BY MICHAEL SOHN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Driver Elana Meyers Taylor and Lauren Gibbs of the United States take a curve in their third heat on Wednesday. THE COVERAGEHighlights from media coverage of the Pyeongchang Olympics: THE LINDSEY VONN SHOW: NBC identi“ ed Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White as its two stars of the Olympics going in, and with Whites games over, was intent upon riding with Vonn to the bottom of the mountain. The focus bordered on the excessive, with the pre-race catalogue of her injuries, the l-o-n-g lingering camera shot as she waited for the starting gate to open and the two separate post-race interviews by Heather Cox. In the second interview, Cox followed NBCs cringeworthy, get em to cry playbook by asking about a dead relative. In this case, it paid off because Cox stuck with her and, her emotions unleashed, Vonn talked movingly about her career and likely last hurrah at the Olympics. LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE: It was plain how determined NBC was to not repeat the embarrassment of the super-G competition when announcer Dan Hicks pronounced the race over before it was. And the network nearly succeeded. The downhill had roughly the same structure, with the last dozen or so racers having very little chance to win. This time NBC stuck with coverage nearly to the end, through racers that showed you why they had very little chance to win, forcing Hicks and partner Bode Miller to “ ll space through skiings version of basketballs garbage time. Then, with nine racers left to go, a graphic ” ashed on the screen with the top three “ nishers and the stillpremature label of “ nal results.Ž MILLER TIME: Millers had a rough Olympics, but hes capable of insights you can only get from a recent, serious competitor. To an outsider, snow is snow. But Miller spotted a rough patch that caused one competitor to wipe out and spoke of the impact of different consistencies of snow. He also took the bold stance of suggesting the key factor in gold medal winner So“ a Goggias victory was her chosen starting time, “ fth among all the skiers. Were still hoping to learn what he means by the observation that a skier is taking an aggressive line. MILLER TIME, PART TWO: Is this Millers “ rst and last Olympics with NBC? He sounded wistful hearing the story of Goggia working as a television commentator when she missed the Sochi Olympics due to an injury and when asked how she liked it, replied, I like being a competitor a lot more.Ž Responded Miller: I can agree with that.Ž SECOND CHOICE: NBC is getting the hang of using its NBCSN cable network as a complement to network coverage. On Tuesday, for example, the cable network gave extensive coverage of “ gure skating, allowing NBC the ” exibility to stay longer on the downhill race and show more of the breadth of Olympic competition. It still needs to better communicate the choices that viewers have.The Associated Press

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) „ The phrase of the day is, Thats not how I remember it!Ž Even while uttering this, the memories will rearrange themselves, having gained greater context and meaning in light of current events. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) „ Youll be presented with ideas that are such a bad “ t for you its almost comical „ but dont laugh. Listen. The perspective youll gain will be invaluable. CANCER (June 22-July 22) „ In seeking partnership, pay keen attention to how you feel around other people. This is far more important than what others can do for you on paper. The best partner will make you feel lively and motivated. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) „ You can avoid future awkwardness by playing against the tendency to make endings so de“ nitive. Keep it open. Try, see you around,Ž until next time,Ž or enjoy!Ž instead of goodbye.Ž VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) „ Life is your art form. The artists journey includes playing around with new and different materials to keep things fresh. Youll “ nd something that is so you,Ž but only if you step out of your current comfort zone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) „ Opportunity isnt something to wait for „ its something to make. The ingredients are simple: communication in numbers. Write the letter and make the pitch, and then get it to as many people as possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) „ A crowd cant love you like an individual can, and an individual cant love you like a c rowd can. You need both kinds of love in your life. They ful“ ll different needs in your psyche, so dont settle for just one kind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) „ You dont have to be prepared for everything, only the next thing. Over-preparing is like over-packing „ heavy, hard to move and harder to organize. Love where youre at. Keep it lean and mean. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) „ Youre not lacking in faith, but you should be a little careful about where you put it today. Dont put your faith in one plan, institution or person unless that person is you or someone you love dearly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) „ What conspires between you and the competition will not dissuade you, but will instead strengthen your convictions and your fearlessness. You may change your approach, but youll continue the journey. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) „ Embrace your constraints; they make you more creative.

Hoyt and Jeff Knurek Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words. SEMYS SUDEO CLHINF DEBOYM 2018 Tribune Content Agency, LLC All Rights Reserved. Check out the new, free JUSTJUMBLE app SUDOKUAnswer to yesterdays sudokuDEAR ABBYDEAR ABBY: My psychiatrists office called and left a very sensitive voicemail about my bulimia on a message machine shared with other individuals. Our voicemails are sent transcribed to everyones email accounts. Since my complaint (which was an argument during which the nurse who left the private information hung up on me), human resources and the office manager have contacted me to try to alleviate the tension, but I have received no apology from anyone for violating HIPAA or embarrassing me. Should I throw in the towel and find a new doctor or revoke my contact information from their files? „ PERSONAL TO PUBLICDEAR PERSONAL: If you provided a shared phone number as your point of contact, you should not have blamed the person who left the message for using it. I see no reason to change doctors, but you should definitely alter your client information so this doesnt happen in the future. That said, does your psychiatrist know one of his/her employees hung up on you? If not, the doctor should be informed, and you should be offered an apology.DEAR ABBY: As guardians of our 5-year-old grandson, we have been given all rights, no terms. He has a father who is on again, off againŽ and makes zero financial contribution. I want to cut him off because consistency and effort are important to me, and he shows none. My husband says the boy is young and I should give his father some time because contact once every other month is better than none at all.Should I allow this inconsistency and instability to continue? „ PARENTS AGAIN IN CALIFORNIADEAR PARENTS AGAIN: I think your husband is right. While the fathers presence may be sporadic, at least your grandson knows that he is cared about. As he grows older, he may or may not start asking why his dad isnt around more. Deal with it then. The boys stability is coming from the home you and your husband are providing for him, and that should be your focus.DEAR ABBY: Im close to my brother and his wife. My friend DottyŽ „ who is estranged from her husband „ thinks my brother is hot, so when she sees him (without his wife) she greets him with a quick kiss on the lips. I have told her I dont think my sister-in-law would like it if she saw her do that. Since then, Dotty has asked him to do repair work at her house (without pay) and he agreed because he is kindhearted. I told her subtly that I didnt think that was a good idea. Is her behavior toward married men normal? „ TOO FRIENDLY IN HAWAIIDEAR TOO FRIENDLY: It is, for a woman who is friendly, outgoing and on the prowl. You may be dropping hints about what Dotty is doing to the wrong person. The next time you talk to your brother, tell HIM what you think about your friends behavior, and ask him what he thinks his wife would think about it.
