[PATTI BLAKE/THE NEWS HERALD] By Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.comYOUNGSTOWN „ As Tommy Loftin waded through thick brush in northern Bay County, acid ate at his boot metal and a dense fog dulled the beam of his flashlight. His calls to any survivors were muffled by his gas mask.Moments later, the thendeputy with the Bay County Sheriffs Office closed in on the cries for help and shouted for them to come toward his voice, possibly his light if they caught a glimpse of it through the stagnant, green cloud all around. Loftin then encoun-tered six teenagers, crying and struggling for breath as he told them to lock hands, and hed get them out of this jam.After the convoy trudged through a chlorine death cloud the early morning of Feb. 26, 1978, however, three of the six teens fell dead.Almost 40 years later, Loftin broke his silence in an interview with The News Herald. He said he still thinks about the infamous Youngstown Train Disaster of 1978Ž often, but he is mostly thankful to have helped the ones who survived.I was just glad to save the lives I did,Ž Loftin said. The lord blessed me with my life and blessed them with their lives.ŽLoftin was the first emer-gency responder on scene of the infamous disaster. It was one of the most significant tragedies in Bay County history, taking the lives of eight people, cost-ingan untold amount of money and manpowerto clean up, sending 118 people to the hos-pital and displacing about 2,500 Youngstown residents for days. But what was the cause of such a destructive wreck?According to Doug Davis, retired vice president of the Bay Line and a derailment inspec-tor, it was sabotage perpetrated as a means of entertainment.Cloud of deathFormer sheriffs deputy Tommy Loftin was featured in Star Magazine shortly after the Youngstown Train Disaster of 1978.

The review also found that the appraisals and information ordered by the city made it clear there could be serious „ and expensive „ problems with the building, yet there isno documentationthatindepth inspections were conducted during the 77-day due-diligence period and reports allegedlyprepared by the consultant hired by the city cannot be located by either party.Public reaction to the escalating cost has been strong, with many questioning the wisdom and timing of the purchase and how so much could change without the public knowing.ANALYSISCity Hall costs questionedMissing paperwork, misplaced appraisals, miscommunication preceded the purchase of Trustmark Breakdown of City Halls pricePurchase of property: $5,500,000 DAG Architects: $629,823 ZHA Consultants: $76,440 Guranteed Maximum Price of construction: $8,428,789 (Note: within the GMP is $545,957 for contractor overhead/fee to GAC) Roof replacement: $350,000 Furniture, “ xtures and equipment: $650,000 Envelope consultant: $35,000 Contigency: $508,502 Total: $16,178,554 See CITY HALL, A4

They wanted to see a good old train wreck and didnt think anyone would get hurt.ŽThat was not the outcome, though, as Davis and Loftin saw with their own eyes. To commemorate its 40th anniversary, both men gave their first-hand accounts of what happened before, during and after the deadly derailment of the 142-car Bay Line train „ officially known as the Extra 510 South of the Atlanta & St. Andrews Bay Railway. €€€ Loftin had been on patrol the night of the crash, looking over businesses for possible bur-glars. He recalled the fog being so thick that his hood ornament was barely visible from the driver seat. Loftin said it was about 1:30 a.m. when he saw something suspicious, a flicker-ing outside a convenience store then called the Linger Longer Store.ŽI knew this building had already been checked, so right away I thought it was being broken into,Ž Loftin said.As Loftin pulled up, he saw five people staggering, falling and laboring for breath in the parking lot. A railroad worker named Virgil Holman lurched forth from the fog to tell Loftin there had been a train derailment and a deadly plume of chlorine gas was settling on the area.Radioing in for back-up, Loftin asked for a massive law enforcement response. He called for an evacuation of anyone within a two-mile radius as he posted his car in the middle of U.S. 231 with the lights flashing to stop anyone from driving into the gas. Through the fog, Loftin could already hear the cries for help.My supervisor told me he used to work at a chemical plant and told me this is a bad, bad gas „ itll kill you if you get in it,Ž Loftin said. I said, I know but I got people hollering and I got to try to help them if I can.ŽLoftin first tried to seek out the desperate cries with a wet rag to cover his mouth. His attempt was thwarted after taking only a few steps toward the green cloud.It just knocked me back,Ž Loftin said. That was some strong stuff.ŽA nearby fire department brought World War I-style gas masks a short time later that Loftin described as looking like a can of beansŽ on the end of a tube. Loftin and Holman then ventured into the gas in search of survivors. As they walked, the two came across choked out vehicles and a dead man in the median of U.S. 231.It appeared this person had thrown up his pure lungs,Ž Loftin said.The two men carried the body out of the gas, and Loftin returned alone in search of sur-vivors. Deep into the woods, he found the six teenagers, complaining about difficulty breathing and how their eyes and faces were burning.I had a heck of a time getting them out,Ž Loftin said. That mess we was in, it was terrible. I finally got them back out to the Linger Longer, and thats where three of them died.ŽLoftin had found the teens about 200 feet into the woods west of U.S. 231, near a track switch that sat in one of the only areas out of sight of the passing traffic of the busy highway. As Loftin made a third trip into the noxious fumes to search for the trains engineer, who had also been a close friend of his, Davis and several other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies began arriving. €€€Davis described the location of the rail switch as ideal for subterfuge. He arrived to find several choked-out vehicles in the area of U.S. 231 that morn-ing and, equipped with a Scott oxygen tank, Davis ventured into the dense green fog. Closer to the wreckage, he came across some of the bodies of some vic-tims, their footprints where theyd tried to flee the death cloud leading to their final rest-ing places.With the deaths of the three teens Loftin led out of the gas, the body count came out to eight. The fallout, however, could have been much worse, Davis said.Its the luck of the draw it wasnt more people,Ž he said. If the wind had been blowing south, a heck of a lot more people wouldve been killed.ŽDavis had been tasked to venture into the deadly fumes to draw sketches of the wreck-age, document the chemicals crews would be dealing with and determine what kind of patch would be needed to seal the seeping chlorine tanker.It wasnt a hole,Ž Davis said. It was a lightning bolt, cut clear down the side.ŽIn his career, Davis had been trained extensively on how to investigate train derailments. As he looked over the evidence at the scene, it became apparent that the rail switch hidden from sight of U.S. 231 had been tam-pered with and shifted about 4 inches.That 4-inch difference had launched the locomotive about 50 feet from the track and caused the following 142 train cars to topple in its wake. In the locomotives lead wheel, the track left a deep gash in its steel.To Davis, that was the smok-ing gun that showed sabotage had caused the crash. He made a mold of the wheel, which he sometimes carries around with him to this day.Solving a derailment is like solving a forest fire,Ž Davis said. You have to walk it back-ward to tell the exact cause. It took me three hours to eliminate other causes. Everybody thought I was crazy.ŽDespite numerous law enforcement agencies „ including the FBI „ concluding the wreck was due to sabotage, no charges were ever filed. That was likely because the prime suspect had been found dead near the scene, Davis said.The same switch two years earlier had been tampered with causing another train derailment. Right beside the switch, investigators discovered motorcycle tracks from where a dirt bike stopped, was laid on its side and then drove back to a house in downtown Youngstown. One of the homes occupants was the young man later found dead at the second derailment.In Davis mind, the fact that the prime suspect in the first derailment had been found killed by chlorine gas at the site of the second derailment and that another derailment attempt never took place were more than coincidence. €€€As Davis looked over the site of one of the most tragic incidents in Bay County history recently with The News Herald, he said it had been about 11 years since hed last visited. The brush was just as overgrown as it was that morning, Davis said, but the switch had been moved elsewhere. What remains the same, though, are the chemicals traveling daily down the tracks toward the port and the potential dangers for disaster.A determined person could sabotage a railroad very easily,Ž he said. Its a scary thought. Youd think it would be harder.ŽLoftin had last spoken with a news outlet almost 40 years ago about his experience. He told The News Herald he never found his friend who had been the trains engineer that morn-ing. Loftin later learned he had hidden in a hole, which created an oxygen pocket for him to safely breathe inside, as the toxic cloud loomed overhead. As the sun rose the morning of Feb. 26, 1978, Loftin was eventually ordered to go to the hospital to have a doctor look at him.Some officials there asked what kind of gas mask did I have during the night,Ž Loftin said. I told him or her it was one of those gas masks that had a canister that looked like a can of beans or something.ŽAfter telling hospital staff that hed made multiple trips into the chlorine cloud for hours at a time, they looked at him with shock and said that type of tank is only supposed to last for about 30 minutes.All I could say was that I had someone with me thats stronger than a gas mask,Ž Loftin responded. Acid that spilled from other cars of the train had eaten the metal in his boots, a necklace he wore and the nickel in his revolver. The Bay Line railroad was kind enough to replace the pistol and his boots, Loftin said, but he never got another necklace.Despite all the chemicals in the air and on the ground as he sought survivors, Loftin said he hasnt suffered any medical issues in the years since. He went on to become a Bay County commissioner in 1984 and received several letters and flowers for his bravery while in the hospital immediately after the crash. One that stood out the most to Loftin was from an unidenti-fied female officer listening to the scanner traffic at the time from Tyndall Air Force Base. When I heard you tell your supervisor over my scanner that you could hear people hol-lering for help and you had to try to help them, I knew right then Officer Loftin you were a special person,Ž the letter read.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 A31952: The Sears Roebuck building opens at 509 Harrison Ave. and later becomes Bay Bank and then Trustmark Bank. 1968: Panama City Hall is built overlooking St. Andrew Bay. July 2015: HomeFed, a development company being considered to redo the Panama City Marina, pressures the Panama City Commission to commit to moving City Hall off the marina property. The city voids its agreement with HomeFed. September 2015: Consultant ZHA submits a needs assessment to the city saying City Hall should move off the marina to make way for other developments. It lists “ ve other reasons for the move: the need for a newer building, city government consolidation, growth and ” exibility, a safer location during a hurricane and energy saving. October 2015: Looking for a new space, the city has an appraiser, Walter Abbott, conduct a review of a 2011 appraisal Trustmark Bank had done of 509 Harrison Ave. The original appraisal by Randy Chandler valued the building at $6.4 million, but Abbotts review said $4 million to $4.5 million was a more realistic number with three years on the market and that the building is functionally obsolete.Ž The bank is not listed for sale. November 2015: The city has a different appraiser, Michael Carroll, determine an as-is value of the building. The appraisal comes in at $2.7 million and notes leaking windows. January 2016: The city has Abbott do another appraisal, this time estimating a one-year marketing time, and he determines the value is $3 million to $3.3 million. The document to the city says $60 to $65 a square foot would probably (be) more in line, less the renovation and build out costs.Ž February 2016: ZHA is hired to do an assessment and schematic estimate of the Trustmark Bank property for $14,800. The work is to include an assessment of the structure and primary systems including identifying required code upgrades, a proposed layout, an estimate of renovation costs and a presentation to commissioners. May 2016: ZHA delivers its work to the city, including possible layouts (one of which shows the Commission Chambers as an addition) and three spreadsheets outlining the potential costs. There is one $4 million option for if the city moved in and did minimal work, including leaving systems as is, and then there were two more sheets „ later referred to as the gut and total gut option „ that pegged the price at $10.5 million or $13 million. The primary difference between the latter two costs was that one included the fees for the architectural engineer, general contractor and contingency and one did not. The scope of work was nearly identical. May 2016: The city signs an exclusive negotiating agreement with developer Bob Sonnenblick to redevelop the downtown marina. June 2016: The city announces to the public its intent to buy the Trustmark building for $5.5 million. Former City Manager Jeff Brown says the project will be a gut job. August 2016: The city votes to buy the Trustmark building. During the discussion, former Commissioner John Kady makes a point of saying potential marina developer Sonnenblick should have to sign the contract to work with the city before the city actually buys the building. Brown assures him that will happen and the city is not jumping the gun.Ž The city has 77 days to do due diligence, including any tests, analyses and surveys and investigations .... necessary to determine the buyers satisfaction (with) the propertys engineering, architectural and environmental properties.Ž November 2016: The city closes on the Trustmark building for $5.5 million. It has not been able to produce any documentation of a due-diligence survey. The commission and City Manager Jeff Brown start saying the expected renovation will cost about $4 million. They anticipate being in by May 2018. November 2016: Two days later, debate breaks out among commissioners about the chambers. There are columns in the room where the chambers would go in the move-in option. While the gut option schematics provided by ZHA show the chamber as an addition and ZHA President Rick Mellon said commissioners were informed in advance, some say they did not know before buying the building. It starts a months-long debate. January 2017: The commission considers buying the building next door to the former bank for $2.99 million in order to have a chamber. They ultimately decide not to buy the building and hold off on making a decision about the chambers. May 2017: The city extends its exclusive negotiating agreement with Bob Sonnenblick, as the project has grown in scope and they need more time to put the studies and other paperwork together before signing a deal. June 2017: The city is presented with different options by ZHA for how to manage the construction work. They decided to go with a Guaranteed Maximum Price „ assuring the city would not pay any more than the number they set „ and work with an architect and engineer, project manager and construction manager. June 2017: The city commits to being out of the current city hall in time for it to be temporarily be used as a juvenile courthouse facility as part of an effort to keep the federal courthouse in Panama City. July 2017: The city hires DAG Architects to work on the project. October 2017: Despite a recommendation from staff to hire a Pensacola company, the commission decided to hire locally based GAC as the construction manager for the renovations. City Manager Jeff Brown said while the other company did slightly better in the interview, he knew GAC could do the job as well. November 2017: The city authorizes up to $437,428 for GAC to start doing demolition work. February 2018: The city approves a Guaranteed Maximum price of $8.4 million, and says the total project will cost just over $16 million. They say the work will take eight months. Several members of the commission say they have sticker shock, but say at least they are closer to the $10.5 million estimate ZHA gave versus the $13 million one. They seem unaware of the similarities in the two estimates at the time. They also approve change orders for more money for the ZHA and DAG contracts to account for the lengthened timeline of the project. Staff say they are exploring co-useŽ of the current building with the Juvenile Court if necessary to keep the federal courthouse in Panama City.CITY HALL TIMELINE


** A4 Sunday, February 25, 2018 | The News HeraldI think the citizens have been misled,Ž Panama City resident Mike Hays said. This has gotten way out of hand.ŽFor Mayor Greg Brudnicki, it has become a source of ongoing frustration. At times, he said the angst surrounding the deal is led by people who "are just trying to hurt the city" for their own reasons. He also has said former City Manager Jeff Brown should have done a better job but ulti-mately says that as mayor, he accepts responsibility for the public's perception of what has happened and any mis-takes that were made.Brudnicki, when asked if he felt Brown was passing on information he was receiving from consultants and others, replied, Is he still there?Ž Brown resigned Jan. 25 after it was publicized he had applied, and was turned down, for a job in south Florida closer to his family.The mayor immediately followed by saying, Im not blaming anyone else; blame me. Ill take blame.ŽBut he then added, We should have had a better city manager. Theres no doubt about it,Ž then Maybe this is why he was looking for another job.Ž The issueThethree most recent appraisals in hand estimated the value of the building at 509 Harrison Ave. at $2.7 million, $3.3 million and $4 million to $4.5 million respectively, compared to a $6.4 million appraisal Trustmark Bank had ordered in 2011. The apprais-als thecity had doneincluded warnings about leaking windows and the difficulties of turning the basement into usable office space, in one case labeling the building func-tionally obsolete.Ž With these notices, the city was given 77 days to conduct due diligence on the property „ including any tests, analyses and surveys and investigations .... necessary to determine the buyers sat-isfaction (with) the propertys engineering, architectural and environmental properties" „ but did not conduct any with its own or outside inspectors, relying instead on a report by consulting firm ZHA based on a walk-through that since has been lost by both ZHA and the city.In a previous ZHA study before closing, the firm con-cluded that to move in without making major changes would cost the city about $4 million, but once they started breaking down walls and making major renovations it would cost in the ballpark of $9.7 to $10.5 million. Brown was even quoted in The News Herald before the purchase saying it would be a "gut job."The probability of the pos-sibility (of it being a gut job) in my mind was very small,Ž Brudnicki said in an interview with The News Herald's edi-torial board. Yes those were there, but from what I saw, people were operating in that building."At first, Brudnicki said he didnt remember Brown ever calling the building a gut job despite the quote appearing in The News Herald on two occasions. In a later interview, he said he did remember but thought Brown was wrong at the time, saying, "I said, 'Jeff, we have no intention of gut-ting it; why would we?'ŽAt other times, Brudnicki said he did not know if due diligence was performed beyond ZHA's walk-through, was not aware of how many appraisals the city had com-missioned or the problems noted in them, and repeatedly said the timing of thepur-chase was in no way tied to the redevelopment of the marina, despite that being one of the reasons cited during previous commission meetings for the need to move quickly on the Trustmark building.Since closing, the city repeatedly told taxpayers the cost of renovations would be about $4 million, and when the cost of the General Maxi-mum Price came in at $8.4 million Feb. 12 „ not includ-ing another $350,000 for the roof „ Brudnicki and others on the commission claimed sticker shock.ŽAt the meeting, Commis-sioner Billy Rader said he had sticker shock, but also said, we knew that $3 million, I think we all knew it wasnt going to hold water.ŽAnd Commissioner Kenneth Brown, an electrician by trade, said while he knew the city would need to drill some holes, knock some walls downŽ to find out the extent of work needed, he also knew this (price increase) was going to happen,Ž saying sometimes it is more expensive to reno-vate than to build new.In the end, every commissioner agreed to the increase in renovation costs, essentially saying it was the only real option because they now own the building. And Brud-nicki, as well as the other commissioner involved in the purchase,remains steadfast that the $5.5 million paid for the building was the best price the city could get, and he has no regrets. The historyThe current city hall, con-structed in 1968, was nearing the end of its useful life, according to a ZHA study. It was too small for the number of people employed by the city, forcing them to buy or rent office space in other locations. In one case, the accounting department was moved out because of asbes-tos in the building, according to Brudnicki.Equally pressing, the loca-tion, overlooking St. Andrew Bay, was prime real estate, which has becoming a sticking point in a deal the city had been negotiating with HomeFed-Leucadia for the marina redevelopment. HomeFed wanted the space for their project, and the city didnt commit to moving fast enough.With this in mind, Brown ordered a needs assessment for city hall from ZHA in 2015, which ultimately emphasized the importance of staying downtown to revi-talize it. Behind the scenes, Brown asked an appraiser to reviewthe 2011 $6.4 million appraisal of theTrustmark building.The first review came back at $4 million to $4.5 million, with a three-year marketing time. The second appraisal the city ordered valued the building at $2.7 million with a one-year marketing time, and a third estimated it at $3 million to $3.3 million with a one-year marketing time.At the time, the city also was negotiating with Sonnenblick Development „ with whom they are still in negotiations „ and looking for a new city hall.In negotiations, Brudnicki, Commissioner Mike Nichols and former Commissioner John Kady all said the $2.7 mil-lion appraisal was thrown out as a low ball. None of the three, at least initially, remembered the $3 million to $3.3 million appraisal when asked about it by The News Herald, raising questions about whether it was passed on to them. They all remembered the recent $4 million to $4.5 million and the 6-year-old $6.4 million appraisal the bank provided, saying they met in the middle of those two.The final $3.3 million appraisal was discovered and delivered to The News Herald on Thursday.Brudnicki said the city tried to negotiate for $4 million but the bank wouldnt go lower than $5.5 million; the deal closed in November 2016.He said he never felt like he was getting a bad price though. Kady said he thought it was a fair price, even with the much lower appraisals he said he wasn't given.And Nichols, who said, I always feel like I pay too much,Ž emphasized the importance of in downtown, something every commis-sioner involved in this project has repeatedly said.Sometimes a building is so unique, how can you put a price on it?Ž he asked.Real Estate Agent Dwight Hicks, looking at the sales price of other downtown properties, said $5.5 million was a fair price. The going rate per square foot the past two years is $63.80. The Trustmark sale, including the land, works out to $87 per square foot, using the 63,000 square foot total listed on the property appraisers web-site. If the three acres of land, worth about $1.5 million in Hicks' estimate, is removed, the costs drops to $63.80 per square foot, just under the average.Sometimes,Ž Hicks added, you pay a little more to get the better properties.Ž Consultants and due diligenceHowever, with the dramatic jump in renovations costs, the question has arisen whether the city, before buying, should've taken more seriously the questions raised in the appraisals and studies to see if building a new city hall might be a better „ and cheaper „ option, or at the least used as a negotiating tool on the $5.5 million price tag.During the due diligence period, the city had ZHA do cost estimates and had permission for ZHA „ or actual inspectors „ to comb through the building looking for defects, much like a prospec-tive home buyer is required to do by banks.No inspectors were brought in, and Interim City Manager Jared Jones said we trusted (ZHA) to do the due dili-gence,Ž saying the city did not have the expertise on staff.We took their recom-mendations, and we ran with them,Ž Jones said.However, that paperwork is now missing. ZHA President Rick Mellon said he believes ZHA did a report, but cant find it on the companys serv-ers. He attributed that to the project lead at the time, Jen-nifer Wolgamott, leaving the company. He said it might be on her personal com-puter,though when contacted by the city, she could not pro-vide the documents. The city also could not find its copy. A ZHA representative did a site investigation that David Scruggs, a senior project man-ager, described in a memo as "somewhat limited" to "what could be seenŽ but that did access the boiler room, elec-trical room and mechanical room for visual inspections for the assessment previously ordered. They also identified leaks in the roof, but they were presented by ZHA as not being a problem because of a transferable warranty.With this, ZHA put together schematics and sent the city spreadsheets „ referred to at the most recent meeting and in the ZHAs most recent memo to the city as the gut option, move-in option and total gut option „ for reno-vation costs.The three spreadsheets „ obtained this week by The News Herald „ priced the work at $4 million for a move in option, $10.5 million for the gut and $13 million for total gut.However, the scope of work outlined in the $10.5 million option and $13 million is nearly identical. The key difference is that the $10.5 million option did not include unavoidable fees such as architectural engineer-ing work and hiring a general contractor, and the more expensive option did. No one could offer an explanation for why the mandatory costs were included in the "total gut" option but not the "gut" option.At the Feb. 12 meeting, two commissioners said they were happy to have come in under the total gutŽ option and being closer to the gutŽ option, apparently not realizing they were essentially covering a very similar scope of work.When asked, Mellon said he was not familiar enough with the spreadsheet to explain why they were so similar in scope of work yet had differ-ent totals.The schematics provided before closing also show the council chambers as an addition, as a result of loadbearing columns in the wall that would be in the publics line of sight. Despite that, the debate about the chambers being an issue started two days after the building was purchased, when commissioners said they had not been told about the columns.And some of the line items in the ZHA options closely reflect some of the "sur-prises" the city is now actually paying. Electrical work, which the city has listed as one of the most expensive surprises, for example, is set at $1,243,500 in the GMP and was estimated at about $1,199,000 by ZHA under new electrical ser-vices and lighting and branch wiring. Given this, Mellon believes the work his company did for the city might have been been misconstrued.We told them to move in and use the systems already there it would cost about $4 million,Ž he said. But once the city opted to start replacing systems and moving walls, which he said was a good decision, the cost was going to go up. And in the Feb. 8 memo sent by Scruggs to the city, he said the move in option did not allow for the adaptation of the city depart-ments configurationŽ among other requests.Once you start biting the apple, where do you stop? We stopped right about where we said we would,Ž Mellon said. I dont know if he (Brown) was able to convey the risk (to commissioners).ŽHe also said he was not con-fident all the information ZHA was providing to Brown was being passed on.Reached for an interview, Brown said this issue is not why he was looking for another job, noting when he left, the GMP was still set at $5.7 million. He also said while he originally thought the building would be a gut job, as the conversation fur-thered with ZHA, he believed the work was lessening.Looking at the layouts, we didnt have to do as much as we thought,Ž Brown said.With all that, the city still will not have a meeting room and instead plans hold the commission meetings at the county facility 1.7 miles away, which is estimated to bring a savings of at least $1 million. Which all boils down to the question of: Was this know-able or avoidable?Some of it, the city, engineers and contractors say, wasnt foreseeable without tearing down walls. Other problems discovered, however, do seem to have been predicted in the gut cost estimate.As for the leaky roof not being a problem because of a warranty, the city is now bud-geting $350,000 because the warranty isn't being honored, according to documents. Moving forwardAt this point, Jones said stopping the work to rebid it „ as some have suggested „ would be unnecessary, as well as a waste of time and more money, a sentiment with which the mayor agreed.Its not as good a deal as we wanted it to be, but its a good deal and it makes a statement,Ž he said. We are committing to downtown.ŽEstimates ZHA provided the city in February 2017 put the price of building a new City Hall at $18 million, breaking down into $13 million for construction and $5 million for the land. At the meeting last week, new con-struction cost estimates were put forward putting the price of new construction at $18 to $22 million.The mayor and commissioners believe putting $16 million into the property, when all is said and done, should inspire further improvement in downtown by others.When this thing is done, when it is all over with, you are going to have a building that is way better than anything that we have had downtown," Kenneth Brown said. "Now what downtown is going to have to do is come up to the caliber.ŽCommissioner Jenna Hali-gas, who was not in office when the building was purchased, said she didnt think the city had done a very good job of communicating to the public the potential price of the project. She also said shes not sure the city needs this many consultants in the future.But, she said, the work needs to continue. It would be so much easier to appease people and just spend that $4 million and thats it, but its just so right,Ž she said at the commission meeting when the price was approved. I think everyone needs to knows well take the heat for it now, but down the road this is the best way to be a steward of this building, is to do right by it.Ž CITY HALLFrom Page A1 Construction is visible in an open room at the future Panama City City Hall building.

** A6 Sunday, February 25, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Allen G. BreedThe Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. „ Well-wishers lined freeway overpasses and small-town streets to honor the late Rev. Billy Graham as his motor-cade crossed his beloved home state of North Carolina for four hours on Saturday from his mountain chapel to namesake library in the states largest city.Adults and children stood behind wooden barricades and yellow tape, police officers saluted, and admirers captured the moment on cellphones along the route. Fire trucks parked on overpasses along Interstate 40.Pallbearers, followed by family members, carried the coffin into the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, which will serve as a backdrop for the evangelists funeral.Franklin Graham said he was fulfilling a promise to take his fathers body to Charlotte. He said was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love we are seeing as we travel.ŽThe motorcade for Americas Pastor,Ž which began at the training center operated by Grahams evangelistic association in Asheville, was a chance for residents in some of the evangelists favorite places to pay tribute. Graham often shopped or caught trains in Black Mountain. He made his home in the nearby community of Montreat.He has never really reveled in all of the celebrity. Its come with the territory,Ž said Joe Tyson, a family friend who runs a furniture store in Black Mountain, where he watched the procession. But theyve managed to live a very normal life for such famous people. And I think hed be very proud that his neighbors turned out and quietly celebrated his reward and his passage into heaven.ŽGraham, who died Wednes-day at his home in North Carolinas mountains at age 99, reached hundreds of millions of listeners around the world with his rallies and his pioneering use of television.A viewing will be held at the Billy Graham Library in Char-lotte on Monday and Tuesday. Graham will also lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday and Thursday, the first time a private citizen has been accorded such recogni-tion since civil rights hero Rosa Parks in 2005.The procession was part of more than a week of mourning that culminates with his burial Friday.A man played bagpipes at a highway rest area near Marion, where an overpass was draped with flags from about 15 nations. In Black Mountain, a group sang Amazing Grace.ŽMotorists lined sidewalks and medians as the motorcade rolled through Charlotte and neared the Graham library, which was closed as mourners laid flowers and awaited arrival of the evangelists casket. He was so bold, he so boldly confessed the word of God,Ž said Madeline Reid. And I believe because of his service to humanity, that hes truly gonna be great in the kingdom of heaven.ŽRuby Sparks, 85, attended a Graham youth ministry meet-ing in 1951, when she was a college student in Greensboro, North Carolina, and met him in 1970.He was such a wonderful man of God, and a messenger of God,Ž she said.Asked if there would ever be another force like his, she replied: I doubt it. Perhaps, in my next, in another lifetime. Not in my lifetime.ŽLeighton Ford, the evangelists brother-in-law, said he was thankful for the show of support and also a little sad.I think hed say, Its not about me. Its about the Lord,Ž Ford said. I remember at his last stadium meeting here in Charlotte, the mayor of Char-lotte told us he was writing out the platform of Billy, and everybody was cheering, and Billy said, Wait a minute. Its not about us. Its about Him.ŽGraham will be laid to rest at the foot of a cross-shaped walkway at the library in Charlotte, buried in a simple prison-made plywood coffin next to his wife, Ruth, who died in 2007. His coffin was built by inmates at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana, who typically construct caskets for fellow prisoners who cannot afford one.The funeral will be held in a tent in the main parking lot of Grahams library in tribute to the 1949 Los Angeles tent revivals that propelled him to international fame, family spokesman Mark DeMoss said. About 2,000 people are expected at the private, invitation-only funeral.Admirers line streets as Grahams body arrivesPeople line the street as the hearse carrying the body of Rev.

** A10 Sunday, February 25, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Dakin CampbellBloombergCitigroup Inc., one of the world's largest credit-card issuers, said it will refund $335 million to U.S. customers whose annual percentage rate should have been lower. The lender determined that a method it was using to calculate APRs didn't properly reflect the full benefit customers should have received for good behavior, such as paying on time, the New Yorkbased bank said Friday in a securities filing that disclosed the issue and the total cost. It's currently review-ing accounts and plans to have refund checks in the mail by the second half of the year.The Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act of 2009 requires lenders to peri-odically review accounts whose APR had been raised to see if subsequent good behavior makes them eligible for a rate reduction. From 2011 to 2017, the bank delivered $3 billion in savings through such reviews. That was about 90 percent of what customers should have received.Citi has semi-annually reviewed U.S. credit-card accounts that experienced an interest-rate increase to identify those eligible for a rate reduction,Ž spokeswoman Liz Fogarty said in a statement. A periodic internal review identified potential flaws in the methodology used to re-evaluate interest rates on some credit-card accounts.ŽThe issue is a setback for Chief Executive Officer Mike Corbat, who has tied some of bank's future growth to expanding its credit-card operation. In 2015, the bank was ordered to pay $700 mil-lion to customers and fined $70 million over illegal practices related to its marketing of card add-on products. In the latest case, Citi-group will issue refunds, or in some instances reduce an account balance, for 1.75 million affected accounts, the bank said. That works out to an average of about $190 an account, including inter-est owed. More than half of those affected should have gotten bigger rate cuts, while the rest were entitled to a reduction but didn't get one.Citigroup managed a total of 250 million accounts across its branded and retailpartner cards during the period in question, and currently has about 120 million accounts. The company will find customers who no longer have an account with the bank and make sure they receive their refund.The lender discovered the flaws on its own and self-reported it to regulators, according to the filing. It didn't find any evi-dence of misconduct.

** A12 Sunday, February 25, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Nacha CattanBloombergFew people are cheering the prospect of several more months of NAFTA talks. Mexicos ruling party may be among that small group.The country is cranking into campaign mode at the same time as it prepares to host the latest round of trade wrangling next week. That means Mexi-can negotiators have a kind of dual mandate. They have to pursue the best outcome for the nation, while keeping one eye out for their bosses in the governing PRI, which is seeking to hang on to the presidency in Julys election.And analysts say the par-tys interests wont be best served by a NAFTA deal before the vote. Renegoti-ation was a U.S. idea in the first place, and President Donald Trump has framed the process as a zero-sum game. Anything hes OK with is likely to be presented as a defeat for the others.For that reason, the best thing for the PRI is not to sign anything now,Ž said Jorge Chabat, a politi-cal scientist at the Center for Economic Research and Teaching, or CIDE, in Mexico City. If the deal is seen by the public as a con-cession, it could cost the party.ŽPRI candidate Jose Anto-nio Meade is running a distant third in most opin-ion polls. Still, the party has ruled Mexico for about 90 of the past 100 years. It has deep pockets, and a finan-cial grip on the media. So Meade, who was finance minister until recently, cant be ruled out.But a collapse in NAFTA talks before the election would deal a further blow to his prospects, according to Chabat and other analysts. If Trump follows through on his threats to pull out, it would likely plunge Mexican markets into turmoil. The governing partys claim to preside over economic stability „ one of the few PRI campaign themes that has traction „ would take a hit.Stretching the talks beyond the election would diminish the risk of paying the costs for a failure in negotiations,Ž said Javier Martin Reyes, another ana-lyst at the CIDE.The Meade campaign said in response to questions that it backs the NAFTA negotiating team and hopes for a satisfactory conclusion thats beneficial for the interests of Mexico and its citizens, regardless of the timing and political process.ŽTo be sure, Mexicos influence over the t alks is limited. Its the smallest of the three NAFTA econ-omies. But with plenty of sticking points from car-parts to food, negoti-ations could require more time anyway.In a recent interview, Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo hinted as much. And he raised another calendar issue that makes the second half of 2018 problematic too.Guajardo said that negotiators on all sides agree that reaching a good deal is more important than the timing „ and that elections shouldnt be allowed to get in the way. He also said that the goal is to get something done within this Mexican administration.ŽMexico braces for elections amid ongoing NAFTA talksJose Antonio Meade, Institutional Revolutionary Party presidential candidate (center), attends a meeting with the partys Red Youth For Mexico on Feb. 9 in Mexico City.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 A13By Dan LamotheThe Washington PostWhen Robert Swan Mueller III deployed to Vietnam as a Marine infan-try platoon commander in 1968, he surely knew it would be difficult. Muellers regiment, the 4th Marines, had faced bloody jungle warfare for months, and Mueller joined them in a hellscape at the tail end of what military historians say was the services defin-ing year in the war due to the size and scope of their operations.Mueller ultimately earned two awards for valor, suffered a gunshot wound to his leg while responding to the ambush of fellow Marines and was reassigned after his injuries to serve as an aide-de-camp to the commander of the 3rd Marine Division, then-Maj. Gen. William K. Jones. In that role, he excelled using a diplomatic and congenial mannerŽ that significantly contributed to the rapportŽ that Jones had with local Vietnamese officials and military officers, according to one account of Muellers actions. These are among the details of Muellers military service outlined in documents released to The Washington Post by the National Archives. They were requested in the pro-cess of reporting a new story that details the rise of both Mueller, a former FBI direc-tor, and President Donald Trump from similar wealthy circumstances to where they are now, as Mueller investigates potential links between Trumps 2016 president campaign and the Russian government.Muellers active-duty military service, often men-tioned glancingly in profiles about him, began in August 1967, when he began train-ing at the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School at Quantico, Virginia. Marine Corps documents show him in their system dating back to August 1966, when he joined as an enlisted pri-vate, rather than an officer, just weeks after graduating from Princeton University. Mueller also attended the Armys Ranger School, a highly-regarded course for combat leadership, and its Airborne School. The assignments are unusual for Marines, and typically set aside for just a handful of the best each year. In combat, Mueller was a member of K Company, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, an infantry unit assigned along dangerous Mutters Ridge, a section of Quang Tri prov-ince, that overlooked the Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone that separated North Vietnam and South Viet-nam. Mueller was decorated for two battles outlined in media accounts, including The Post Friday.In the first, he led Marines through an eight-hour battle near Mutters Ridge in which his men faced fire from small arms and automatic weapons, as well as a grenade launcher. Mueller, then a second lieutenant, moved among Marine positions in the battle, directing counter-fire and setting up a defensive perimeter super-vising the evacuation of wounded Marines, includ-ing one who died.For his actions, Mueller would receive the Bronze Star with VŽ device and a citation.Four months later, Muel-ler was shot in the thigh responding to the ambush of some of the Marines under his command.He received the Navy Commendation Medal with V.ŽDespite his wounds, Mueller did not return to the United States. He healed nearby, and then became an aide to a senior officer, Jones, who was a towering figure in the Marines. Jones had earned a Silver Star and Navy Cross for valor as a battalion commander during the World War II battles of Tarawa and Saipan, respectively, and went on to become a regimental commander in the Korean War before Vietnam. Jones regarded Mueller well, said retired Marine Gen. James L. Jones, who was William Joness nephew. The younger Jones did not know Mueller during Vietnam, but learned about Muellers past service to the elder Jones in former presi-dent Barack Obamas White House, where Mueller was the FBI director and the younger Jones was his first national security adviser.He was always well pre-pared,Ž the retired general said of their shared time in the White House. Hed done his research, hed done his homework, and he presented his viewpoints in very clear, unambiguous terms. It was very easy to see where he came from.ŽAfter Mueller returned from Vietnam, he served briefly in a headquarters unit at Henderson Hall, a Marine Corps installa-tion near the Pentagon. He left active-duty service in August 1970. His last rank was captain.Muellers military career brief but remarkable


** A14 Sunday, February 25, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Jeff Horwitz and Juan ZamoranoThe Associated PressPANAMA CITY „ One of President Donald Trumps family busi-nesses is battling an effort to physically evict its team of executives from a luxury hotel in Panama where they manage opera-tions, and police have been called to keep the peace, The Associated Press has learned. Witnesses told the AP they saw Trumps executives carrying files to a room for shredding.Representatives of the hotel owners association formally sought to fire Trumps management team Thursday by hand-delivering termination notices to them at the Trump International Hotel and Tower, accord-ing to a Panamanian legal complaint filed by Orestes Fintiklis, who controls 202 of the propertys 369 hotel units. Trumps managers retreated behind the glass walls of an office where they were seen carrying files to an area where the sounds of a shredding machine could be heard, according to two witnesses aligned with the owners. The legal complaint also accused Trumps team of improperly destroying documents.The witnesses spoke on condition of anonymity over concerns they would be drawn into an expensive and protracted legal fight.Elsewhere in the build-ing, the hotel owners team and its allies were barred by Trump Hotel staff from entering the room containing the buildings closed-circuit TV system as well as key computer servers for the hotel and apartments that share the property. In response, they shut off power to the room „ temporarily bringing down phone lines and internet connections within the building.According to the legal complaint, Trumps chief of security and six security guards pushed and shouted atŽ Fintiklis when he came to deliver the termination notices. The complaint said the hotel employees then called the police.A new confrontation appeared likely to arise during the weekend, as Trumps security staff set up early Saturday in the hotel lobby, witnesses said. But by Saturday afternoon the lobby was again quiet.Representatives of the Trump Organization declined to comment, but have previously called attempts to fire their man-agement company illegal and said no change in the buildings control would be appropriate without a decision from arbitrators or a judge.Fintiklis did not respond to messages left by text or email.On Friday night, lawyers, notaries and rival security personnel gath-ered at the hotel in Panama City while talks were underway to prevent the conflict from deteriorat-ing further.The showdown is the newest low in a monthslong fight over control of the property. Last August, Fintiklis Miami-based Ithaca Capital Partners bought the 202 units in a fire sale from the propertys struggling developer. As part of the deal, Trump Hotels sought and received some assurances that Ithaca would not seek to act against its interests as hotel manager.Trump o cials ght eviction from hotelA woman walks past the main entrance to the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower on Friday in Panama City.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 A15By Dmytro VlasovThe Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine „ A new indictment against former Donald Trump cam-paign chief Paul Manafort focused a spotlight Saturday on uncovering the former European leaders who prosecutors contend were secretly paid by Manafort to lobby on behalf of Ukraine.The U.S. indictment handed up Friday by a grand jury doesnt name the European politicians, although it notes they worked in coordination with Manafort, his deputy Rick Gates and two Wash-ington lobbying firms „ the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs „ to lobby U.S. officials and lawmakers.At least four leaders „ former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi, former Austrian Chan-cellor Alfred Gusenbauer, former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski and former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko „ were named last year in public filings by the two lobbying firms. The firms said the poli-ticians were involved in U.S. speaking events and meetings with U.S. lawmakers and others to promote Manaforts client at the time, Ukraines pro-Moscow president, Viktor Yanukovych.The filings did not disclose any payments to the former officials, and its unclear if they are the same politicians referenced in the U.S. indictment. U.S. law requires people who are lobbying U.S. offi-cials on behalf of foreign governments or political parties to register, and a Justice Department database doesnt show that those former European officials did. But its unclear from the U.S. indictment how much the former European poli-ticians knew about their funding or if they could be covered by some legal exemption.The lobbying by the European political figures, identified in the indictment as the Hapsburg Group,Ž allegedly took place in 2012-13, when Ukraine was moving toward closer inte-gration with the European Union. But the indictment doesnt formally charge any of the leaders or refer to them as co-conspirators of Manafort and Gates.None of the four politicians responded to requests for comment Sat-urday from The Associated Press but three of them were quoted as denying the reports.Gusenbauer told the Austrian national news agency APA that he never acted on Yanukovychs behalf.I never undertook activities for Mr. YanukovychŽ or his party, the news agency quoted Gusenbauer as saying. He said his interests in 2012 and 2013 were in bringing the nation of Ukraine closer to Europe.In public events in Paris, Brussels and Berlin, I advocated for the European Union concluding an association agreement with Ukraine,Ž he said.The press office for Prodi, the former Italian premier and European Commission president, denied that he was ever involved or paid by a secret lobbying group.Prodi never took part in any kind of secret activity, let alone in secret lobby-ing groups, nor has he ever received compensation for this kind of activity,Ž said the statement, carried by the Italian news agency ANSA.The statement said Prodi has long worked so that Ukraines growing nearer to Europe can become concreteŽ and added that his activity was public and thus easily traceable.ŽKwasniewski was quoted as saying he had no financial or political agree-ments with Manafort and was not familiar with the term Hapsburg Group.ŽThe leading Polish news outlet Onet quoted him as saying that he knows Manafort, having met him in 2012 when he and Pat-rick Cox, a former European Parliament president from Ireland, led a mission to Ukraine to try to persuade Yanukovych to release his rival, former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, from prison.We met several times, with the hope that Manafort would help convince YanukovychŽ to release Tymoshenko, Kwasniewski was quoted as saying. I have not seen him since November 2013, when Yanukovych refused to sign the association agreement with the EU.ŽNo money came into play. I did not have any financial or political agree-ments with him. This is some kind of misunder-standing,Ž he said.He said there were many debates and conferences on Ukraine in 2012 and 2013, and he took part in them, sometimes with Prodi, sometimes with Gusenbauer.ŽOf course, we took fees. Maybe Manafort paid for them through his companies? But these were public, open debates,Ž Kwasniewski was quoted as saying.A Ukrainian lawmaker, meanwhile, told the AP on Saturday that a former Austrian chancelloar was among the European poli-ticians secretly paid to lobby for Ukraine.Serhiy Leshchenko, who says he helped uncover off-the books payments from Yanukovych to Manafort, said he saw the information about a former Austrian chancellor in a ledger of payments to Manafort.Search launched for Europeans paid to lobby Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is accused of unregistered lobbying and conspiring to launder millions of dollars earned while working on behalf of a pro-Russian Ukrainian political party.

[ANTONIO CALANNI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Labor market improving in Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, but economies are still in tattersBy Tim CraigThe Washington PostNEW YORK … Hurricane…induced economic turmoil in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands is not likely to be as severe or long…lasting as the financial damage New Orleans suffered after Hurricane Katrina, even though tens of thousands of residents have fled the islands, creat-ing uncertainty about their financial future, economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York said Thursday.With the economies of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands in tatters even before the September storms, William Dudley, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, said local recovery efforts have been severely hamperedŽ by their governments inability to access additional debt. But about five months after Hurricane Irma skirted the Virgin Islands and Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, Dudley said there are signs that the local labor market is stabilizing.As repair and rebuilding efforts get underway in both Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, jobs are being created in sectors such as construction,Ž Dudley said. These job gains are expected to continue for some time to come.ŽSince September, Puerto Rico has lost 4.2 percent of its jobs while employment in the Virgin Islands has dipped 9.4 percent, according to data presented by Jason Bram, a Federal Reserve Bank research economist.Hurricane recovery remains hampered

The grounds for Dinkins competency evalu-ation are not clear, but Circuit Judge Brantley Clark Jr. has agreed to allow an expert to evaluate Dinkins before proceeding with court hear-ings. The evaluation is set for March 23.Dinkins attorney, Paul Komarek, in the motion filed Dec. 12 wrote that based on information obtained during the course of representation of (Dinkins), counsel has reason to believe that the defendant may be incom-petent to proceed in this cause.ŽThe observations that led to that belief, however, are unclear.Both inmates had received disciplinary sanctions and were being housed in a seg-regation unit, BCSO reported. They had been in separate dormitories before being involved in fights with other inmates.On the night of the attack, a detention officer entered the segregation area for a scheduled security check and found Dinkins was bang-ing on the cell door to get his attention, screaming, You have to get me out of here,Ž BCSO reported. The offi-cers reported that when they entered the cell, they discov-ered Whitsett lying on the top bunk bleeding heavily from injuries to his head.BCSO reported Dinkins had wrapped two plastic meal trays in a bed sheet and attacked Whitsett with it. Dinkins reportedly told offi-cers he believed Whitsett was the man responsible for kill-ing a friend of his.Dinkins stated Whitsett did not take any actions or say anything to him prior to striking Whitsett,Ž officers wrote. Dinkins was unsure of the amount of times he did strike Whitsett but stated after he did this he sat down on his bunk and cried.ŽAfter doctors determined he had been left brain dead, they removed him from life support Oct. 12.Whitsetts charges from a sexual battery and lewd and lascivious case were headed toward a resolution. He had been deemed mentally incompetent by the court on Oct. 2 due to intellectual disability or autismŽ and was headed to a state mental facil-ity for the mentally disabled.Dinkins had been in jail since August when he allegedly was caught on sur-veillance video breaking into the Dollar General, 559 Har-rison Ave. He has pleaded not guilty in both cases. MURDERFrom Page B1wizards and Hogwarts students as part of the fundraiser. They were also able to get their faces painted, buy wizard wands, learn about robotics and sample magical fare.Niki Kelly, executive director of Girls Inc., said despite the scientific works of NASA and the Harry Potter series' basis in fantasy being opposite, the two actually worked well together. She said one of the things they have in common is accessibility."So many people are fans of Harry Potter," Kelly said. "All walks of life, young or old, have Harry Potter fans. And it is easy for the girls to participate."Many of the 20 girls who will attend the camp were helping in various capacities of the fun-draiser „ making popcorn in Honeydukes Snack StoreŽ or serving butter beer in the Leaky Cauldron PubŽ or teaching people how to cast spells with wizard wands. Arissa and Isa-bella, both going on the trip, said they know science and fantasy didn't mix, but they were inter-ested in experiencing some of some of the parts of space travel that seem magical here on Earth."We're going to get to go into 5G," Isabella said. "It's pretty close to no gravity."Arissa said she was most excited about getting to learn more about NASA at space camp. When asked what she wanted to learn more about, she responded, "All of it."Throughout the year, the girls have been studying NASA-based curriculum, Kelly said, which essentially consists of every aspect of STEM educa-tion. She said Girls Inc. has had a NASA curriculum off and on for the past 40 years, but recent students are likely the ones to have a practical use for the infor-mation in a career."They absolutely love learning about space," Kelly said. "They eat it up because it's now part of their daily lives."Kelly recalled hearing about people going into space as a child, but the idea of her being able to go just seemed to be a dream. Now, there's a very real possibility for kids to be part of a Mars exploration or fly outside the Earth's atmosphere in their lives. If they aren't interested in space travel, though, the foun-dational education of science, technology, engineering and math will have been forged.The funds donated will pay for 20 girls to travel to Huntsville, Ala., for a three-day space camp. Kelly expected to have about half of the $6,000 needed for the trip at the end of the fundraiser. The rest of the donations have come from yard sales or sponsors.Kelly said even though the space camp trip is in March, anyone who wants to sponsor a girl can still do so. If interested, call Girls Inc. at 850-769-6703. SPACEFrom Page B1What it does is open up a new pot of money, so that is the important part,Ž said Hector Solis, a Beach councilman and a member of the Bay Transportation Planning Organization. Solis has been pushing for the designation and said he was elated at the SIS desig-nation, saying it could bring in funds sooner to widen Back Beach Road.You can get projects quicker when you are an SIS than you can through the regular long-term transportation plans. It is not a magic bullet yet, but at least weve got another pot to go after.ŽThe SIS designation also could speed up funding for widening or improving the highway through Panama City.After completing a Project Development and Environ-ment study on Back Beach Road, from Mandy Lane to Thomas Drive, the Florida Department of Transporta-tion already had determined widening the highway is needed. But so far, no fund-ing has been designated in the state's five-year-work program to fund the work.And with a new sports park, school and expanding Breakfast Point community being developed along Back Beach Road, city officials expect the traffic to go from bad to worse unless the road is widened.The portion of U.S. 98 running through Walton County already is designated SIS. Solis said with traffic counts higher on Back Beach Road than U.S. 98 in Walton County, it was illogical to leave the Bay County portion out.The expansion (of 98) that is happening in Walton County now is through SIS funds,Ž Solis said. My argument was, 'How are you saying Walton County is a strategic corridor without the full connection all the way through Bay County?'"FDOT ultimately agreed. In a letter to the Bay TOP, Tim Smith, FDOT intermo-dal systems development administrator, wrote that the county's request had been approved. The SIS designation now extends from Interstate 110 east to U.S. 231, adding portions of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Bay counties.This excludes the segment of U.S. 98 in Walton County, which is already on the SIS," Smith wrote.

** B4 Sunday, February 25, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Lisa Marie PaneThe Associated PressThe idea of arming teachers to take out a shooter is alarming some law enforcement experts, who say it takes more than just being a good shot at a gun range.They say it would require specialized and repeated training to teach educators the proper tactics and enable them to conquer their fear and remain calm and clear-thinking in a fast-moving, life-or-death situation. Simply putting a gun on the premises and hoping someone's going to do the right thing with it is baseless,Ž said Chris Groll-nek, a former law enforcement officer who specializes in secu-rity issues, especially active shooter situations. All you're doing is signing people up for PTSD.ŽThe idea of arming teachers isn't new. Some schools around the country already allow edu-cators to bring guns onto school grounds.But the notion is gaining momentum after the shooting rampage at a high school in Parkland last week that left 17 students and adults dead. It turned out the only armed offi-cer on duty at the school stayed outside rather than go in to con-front the gunman.President Donald Trump suggested even paying bonuses to teachers willing to be trained to carry firearms at schools.Still, law enforcement experts note that police are trained for months in the acad-emy and then are put through drills during their careers on such things as making split-second decisions in a crisis and dealing with the mentally ill.Experts who have spent careers on SWAT teams or other specialized units say it isn't something that comes naturally. It can take not just training but real-life experience in pressure-cooker situations before the instruction takes hold and they're able to respond effectively.What an individual officer or a team of officers will do in an active shooter incident calls on every aspect of their overall training and policing. And that's one of the reasons why you'd be hard-pressed to find someone in policing who thinks it's a good idea to arm teachers,Ž said Rick Myers, executive director of the Major Cities Chiefs Association.Teachers' training and expertise has nothing to do with police tactics „ shootdon't-shoot decision making, the psychological trauma that accompanies violence, all the things that are built into what police officers deal with on a daily basis.ŽAround the country, in places like Ohio and Texas, some schools post warnings that staffers are armed, while others keep potential attackers guessing.Chris Cerino, a former law enforcement officer, now offers training to educators through his Cerino Consulting and Training Group. The program has taught 1,300 educators over five years. They spend 28 hours learning not just how to fire a gun but such things as ambush tactics, responding under stress, and treating wounds.Students on occasion have left the class within the first few hours after realizing they're not cut out for it.Cerino said teachers realize that the usual tactics taught in school „ lockdowns and throwing books and other objects at a gunman „ are simply not going to stop a determined killer with a gun. And all that's going to do is delay in the inevitable.ŽChristopher Albrecht, a fourth-grade teacher from Brockport, New York, and the state's 2018 teacher of the year, said there is already high anxi-ety in schools with lockdown drills and fears of shooters. He said he is not convinced arming educators is the solution. I can't imagine if I had a gun that was visible on me what that would do to anxiety levels. If anything right now, I'm trying to lower anxiety levels in my classroom. I think that would just raise them,Ž he said.Mo Canady, executive direc-tor of the National Association of School Resource Officers, urged every school to first get an armed officer posted before it considers arming teachers. Those officers are highly trained, he said. Also, he said, arming teachers could make it difficult for police rushing to the scene of a shooting to tell who the bad guy is.We see one person or six people with weapons drawn in plainclothes „ that could go bad in a hurry,Ž Canady said.The tactics for dealing with active shooters changed after the Columbine High School attack in 1999 in which two students killed 13 people. At the time, it was general practice for law enforcement to wait for a team of officers to assemble before going in to confront a gunman.Since then, officers have been trained to go in immediately „ even if it's a lone officer without backup.Why the school resource officer stayed outside rather than try to stop the Parkland shooter hasn't been disclosed. But one possible factor, law enforcement experts said, is the limited daily experience those officers have with high-pressure situations.Is it then unreasonable to expect educators to perform any differently?Just being a gun enthusiast doesn't mean you're going to perform well under stress,Ž said John Bostain, a former police officer in Virginia who now travels the country training law enforcement. You can't just tell people what it's going to feel like. You have to experience it.ŽPolice experts urge intensive training if teachers armedThis August 2016 photo shows a sign outside a school in Claude, Texas, where some teachers carry weapons.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 B5 News Herald staff reportBAY COUNTY „ Amid high tensions after the Parkland shooting, dozens of students have been arrested over school threats of varying degrees of sincerity and practicality.In Bay, Walton and Oka-loosa counties, eight students were arrested last week. Here is a quick breakdown of the cases, according to county sheriff's office reports.€ BCSO on Tuesday arrested a 17-year-old Rosenwald High School student after classmates said he frequently makes statements threaten-ing to shoot up the school and had drawn a detailed blueprint of the school with notes on where he would put bombs in certain classrooms and shoot the students inside others. The student admitted to making the comments but said it was "no big deal." A search at his residence resulted in no fire-arms or explosive materials. He was charged with making a false report concerning use of a firearm in a violent manner, a second-degree felony.€ Also Tuesday, OCSO arrested a 13-year-old Pryor Middle School student after he reportedly sent a Snapchat post that said I want to shoot a school.Ž The image 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, did not have any specific school in mind and did not mean anything by it, and he took the image of the weapon from Google images. He was charged with making a threat to kill or do bodily harm.€ BCSO on Wednesday arrested a 14-year-old Bay High School student after classmates reported him making threats that he intended to shoot other students. The teen admitted to saying he was going to shoot up the school, using his hand to symbolize a gun and "shooting" at students and using his finger as a "knife" to indicate he would slash student's throats. The student said thought it was funny and was only joking. A search of his residence also resulted in no access to firearms. He also was charged with making a false report concerning use of a firearm in a violent manner.€ Also Wednesday, BCSO arrested a 13-year-old Jinks Middle School student. Witnesses said the teen was making comments that he would shoot up the school and pointing his fingers like a gun, shootingŽ at other stu-dents. He reportedly said he would pull an alarm to get all the students outside and then would shoot them.Ž The teen admitted to making the statements but said he only meant that if a shooter were to be at his school this is how and who they would shoot.Ž He was charged with making a false report concerning the use of a firearm in a concern-ing manner.€ A DeFuniak Springs school was put on temporary restric-tion Thursday after a student attending the In10sityŽ Magnet School at the Wise Center found a composition notebook in a classroom with a note reading "Mr. Cotton you need to go get your AK-47 and I will get my AR-15 and we can kill everyone at school.Ž After a search of the campus, during which no weapons were found, a 17-year-old student admitted to writing the note and was arrested on a felony charge of issuing a threat to kill.€ Also Thursday, a 12-year-old online student in Crestview was arrested and charged with sending a threat to kill or injure another student who lives in Hillsborough County. A post in an online school portal called Florida Cyber Charter Acad-emy showed a collection of guns and ammunition was sent to a 13-year-old boy with the caption Many guns to die from,Ž according to the sheriffs office. Another post said, So you want to die?Ž The boy admitted sending the messages but said he was just trying to be funnyŽ and was trying to stick up for a girl who was being bullied in his class by the boy who received the threats. The boy said he got the image of the firearms from Google. He also admitted sending the message to two other students in his online classroom. He was charged with one felony count of making a written/sent threat to kill or do bodily injury.€ BCSO on Friday arrested a Freeport student at Deane Bozeman School for a track meet after students reported a photo depicting a firearm that he had posted on Snapchat. The 16-year-old admitted to putting the picture and message on Snapchat but said he did not intend to hurt anyone and that the firearm in the picture was just a BB gun. The teen did, however, have a large hunting knife and a gold switchblade in a backpack on the school bus. He was charged with two felony counts of possessing a weapon on school property.€ Later Friday, BCSO arrested a 16-year-old student who reportedly told classmates at Arnold High School he was going to "shoot up the school" beginning with his teacher first, then moving on to the students.He report-edly said he wanted to use C-4 on certain pillars in the school to collapse the buildings, and then shoot the students, and wanted to start by shooting his teacher in the arms and legs. The teen told investiga-tors he had made his plans of destruction "mentally," as he has a "high IQ" and is good at strategy, reportedly showing no remorse and saying "I enjoy bringing pain and seeing other people suffer." A search war-rant at his residence revealed several firearms, which were seized. He was charged making a false report con-cerning the use of a firearm in a violent manner.School threat arrests pour in statewide; 8 in region last weekthe gun debate.Our kids have started a revolution,Ž Stoneman Doug-las teacher Diane Wolk Rogers said during a CNN-sponsored forum Wednesday.In the aftermath of the violence that claimed 17 lives, students have piled into buses and crashed a meeting of law-makers in Tallahassee. They've relentlessly badgered Florida Sen. Marco Rubio about his support from the National Rifle Association. They've rejected President Trump's condolences, calling for action over words.To many advocates for gun control, the moment feels more profound than any since the aftermath of the 2012 shoot-ing at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., where 20 first-graders and six adults were fatally shot, spurring the most serious congressional gun debate in years.The mantra just became if we couldn't do it after Newtown, if we couldn't do it after however many 6-year-olds were killed, it's never going to happen,Ž said Dave Cullen, the author of Columbine,Ž which chronicles the 1999 shooting at the Colorado high school of the same name.Then this happened,Ž Cullen said, and everything changed.ŽParkland is a well-to-do suburb, with a median household income more than twice the national average. Stone-man Douglas is a top-tier public school under the state rating system, where most students take advanced-placement classes and the curriculum includes yoga and culinary arts.Charles Zelden, a professor of history and political science at Nova Southeastern University in nearby Fort Lauderdale, said the students speaking out in the shooting's aftermath come from a tradition of being heard and are angry enough right now that they won't stand for not being heard.ŽThey're used to the idea that they're going to make a differ-ence, that people are going to listen to them,Ž Zelden said.Cullen wonders whether the Parkland attack indicates that it's not the number of deaths or level of outrage that a shooting evokes, but whether it's the right group of people with the right standing and the right set of abilities that picks up the ball and runs with it.ŽHe's been awed that the tragedy produced not just one well-spoken young student activist, but a deep bench of them.Emma Gonzalez stirred a huge crowd with shouts of Shame on you!Ž directed at lawmakers. David Hogg has emerged as a media star, giving poised interview after interview. Sarah Chadwick, whose angry tweet to Trump went viral, stirred those gath-ered in the state Capitol rotunda with what she promised was a revolution on behalf of fallen friends.Never again should a child be afraid to go to school,Ž she said. Never again should stu-dents have to protest for their lives.ŽAndy Pelosi, a co-chairman of the Florida Coalition to Pre-vent Gun Violence, has spent the past two decades fighting for gun control and watching in despair as a stream of tragedies seemed to bring little meaning-ful change. He, likewise, was struck by students' collective response.I'd like to think this is different,Ž Pelosi said, noting that the students' impassioned actions are helping galvanize a movement, even if they face formidable odds.And if you look at our history, the main social move-ments in our country have been fueled by students,Ž Pelosi said.In matching a $500,000 donation by George and Amal Clooney to the students' planned marches against gun violence, Oprah Winfrey compared the teens to the Freedom Riders of the 1960s, who rode buses into southern states in protest of racial segregation „ and others shared that sentiment.Jacob Udo-Udo Jacob, a professor at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania who studies social media-fueled activism, said the students have a chance to stir something equally profound. Jacob cited Rosa Parks' arrest in the fight for civil rights and street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi's self-immolation in Tunisia, which led to the Arab Spring.Any movement, historically, it's down to narratives, how the movement is framed,Ž Jacob said.The teens don't agree on all issues, but most want AR-15s banned and the age for buying rifles in Florida raised to 21, as it is for handguns. Many want all semi-automatic rifles banned. Uniformly, they want stronger background checks so people like the 19-year-old shooter, who was known to be mentally unstable and violent, cannot buy guns.Their message seems to already be having at least some effect, with Trump, Rubio and Gov. Rick Scott all taking some steps toward greater gun regulation. Rubio said his visit to Stoneman Douglas is what prompted him to change his stance on large-capacity magazines.Alongside the reasons for hope, though, have been signs of the tough road ahead.Some conservatives have portrayed the teens as pawns being exploited to take away constitutional rights, with the NRA insisting liberals want to ban all guns. Far-right voices have even sought to advance the lie that some of the students are crisis actors,Ž essentially paid puppets helping advance an anti-gun agenda.Everything they're doing is right out of the Democrat Par-ty's various playbooks,Ž Rush Limbaugh said of the students on his show Monday.

Both Delta and United said Saturday they will no longer offer discounted fares to NRA members to attend their annual meetings, and both have asked the gun rights group to remove any refer-ences to their companies from the NRA website.A growing number of large companies have announced they are cutting or reducing ties with the NRA. Rental car company Hertz no longer will offer a discount program to NRA members and First National Bank of Omaha said it will not renew a co-branded credit card it has with the NRA.The moves have come as petitions circulated online targeting companies offering discounts to NRA members on its website. #BoycottNRA was trending on Twitter.The State of Florida was also facing a potential boycott and backlash as well. One teen survivor of the Florida school shooting suggested on Twitter Saturday morning that tourists stay away from the state during spring break; he got immediate response on social media.Let's make a deal,Ž David Hogg, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student who has been a major player in the #neveragain movement, tweeted. DO NOT come to Florida for spring break unless gun legislation is passed.ŽWendy Glaab, 60, of Fonthill, Ontario, Canada, was among the first to respond. I like many Canadians travel to Florida from time to time to escape our winter.

Well, defense also gets you a ticket to Lakeland for this years Class 1A girls basket-ball state semifinals.Panhandle schools Paxton (23-6) and Port St. Joe (27-2) meet 9 a.m. CST on Monday in the RP Funding Center in Lakeland for the right to advance to the 1A state cham-pionship game early Tuesday afternoon.The other side of the bracket is Lafayette (21-7) vs. Wildwood (23-6).Unlike the boys tourna-ment, where Port St. Joe has an impressive pedigree in the sport, the Tiger Sharks girls cant compare to the legacy that Paxton has forged in the sport.The Bobcats have won five state championships, the most recent in 2014, and eliminated a one-loss team in Holmes County to return to the state semifinals. In doing so, they have allowed opponents an average of just 35.6 points per game.Port St. Joe, which has won 16 consecutive games since a one-point loss to a Georgia school, takes that to an alto-gether microscopic level. Only five schools have sur-passed 40 points against the Tiger Sharks, and just one, Niceville in a 52-42 season-opening defeat, reached 50.That equates to a defensive average of 24.5 points allowed, which nearly is matched (20.0) by Port St. Joes average steals per game.The Tiger Sharks are seeking their first state cham-pionship, however, and in only their second appearance PSJ eyes rst state titlePort St. Joes Teiyahna Hutchinson goes to the basket during the district tournament at Bozeman earlier this month. The Tiger Sharks meet Paxton on Monday morning in only their second state tournament appearance. [JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] The News HeraldMARIANNA „ The No. 2 Gulf Coast womens basketball team closed out its regular season Saturday night with a 69-65 road vic-tory over Chipola, while the Commodore men finished up falling to the Indians 80-69.The Lady Commodores, who clinched the outright Panhandle Conference championship a week earlier with a win over Pensacola State, completed an 11-1 league season and are now 23-2 overall. Chipola ended its season 14-13 and 3-9 in conference play. Gulf Coast will next compete in the Region VIII tournament starting March 8 in Ocala.Shayla Bennett led the Lady Commodores on Saturday with 29 points, five rebounds, and four assists and hit 19 of 25 from the free throw line. Alexus Dye added 14 points and eight rebounds, while Astou Gaye had eight points and seven rebounds. Jhileiya Dunlap only scored six points but contributed 16 rebounds and four blocked shots.Courtajia Sanders led the Lady Indians with 21 points, followed by Valerie Nesbitt with 18 points and five assists, with Tyra Johnson scoring 11, and Lyric Turner adding eight points and seven rebounds.Gulf Coast jumped out to a 15-4 lead to start the game, but Chipola charged back with a 15-3 run to take a one-point lead after one quarter. The Lady Commodores led 37-36 at halftime and the Lady Indians went up 51-48 at the end of the third quarter. The Chipola lead was six after a three-point play by Sanders to start the fourth quarter and 58-54 Lady Indians after a driving basket by Sanders.Bennett answered with a three-point play of her own and two free throws to put Gulf Coast up 59-58 with six minutes to play. Two more free throws by Bennett gave the Lady Commodores a 66-64 edge with 43 seconds on the clock, and the sophomore guard split a pair of foul shots with 22.5 seconds left to leave her team up three.She then made a big mis-take by fouling Johnson on a 3-pointer with 9.9 seconds remaining, but Johnson could only make one out of the three shots at the line. A bizarre sequence followed when Gulf Coast attempted to inbound the ball from half court to Shay Collins, who caught the ball in the front court and had her momen-tum carry her into the back court for a violation.However, a pair of Chipola players left the bench and went on to the court to celebrate the play and a technical foul was called. Bennett then made two free throws to give Gulf Coast the final margin.The Indians led from start to finish in the mens game, building a lead as big of 15 points in the first half and taking a 40-33 lead into the break. Gulf Coast got to within four at 54-50 with 11:15 to play, but Chipola gradually pushed the lead back out to 72-62 with 3:41 remaining and kept the Commodores at bay from then on.Will Robinson led Gulf Coast with 26 points and Lady Commodores edge Chipola, GC men fall See BASKETBALL, C2 See PSJ, C2 See NASCAR, C2

Having to come from behind is harder to do than protect the position you already gained.ŽThe 2017 race was expected to be the farewell for the old surface. Instead, the persistent lobbying effort by drivers helped convince NASCAR and Atlanta Motor Speedway officials to wait at least one more year.No decision yet,Ž AMS president Ed Clark said. Were going to get through the weekend and then look at it again.ŽClark said input from drivers on the decision is welcome but not all-important.The track was repaved for the last time in 1997. An announcement from AMS last year said the decision to delay install-ing a new surface was made after an in-depth review and exhaustive consultations with NASCAR, Goodyear, race teams and drivers.ŽThe threat of rain on Sunday led NASCAR on Saturday to move up the scheduled start by one hour, to 1:06 p.m. ET. According to weather. com, there is an 80 percent chance of rain on Sunday. There is a 100 percent chance of rain on Monday, causing additional complications for NASCAR crews who move equipment to Las Vegas for next weeks event. The tracks perfor-mance on a wet day could influence the decision to repave the surface before the 2019 race.I would say there is not a driver in the garage that wants to pave this track or wants this track to get repaved,Ž Truex said. Unfortunately, we are going to find out on Sunday. I think the weather and the circum-stances we will have to deal with this weekend are going to be what makes that decision for us.ŽDillon aims to become the first driver since Matt Kenseth in 2009 to win the seasons first two races.Rookie Darrell BubbaŽ Wallace Jr., who finished second last week will become the first black driver at an Atlanta Cup race since Bill Lester finished 38th in 2006. Truex will start 35th after his car didnt pass inspection before Fri-days qualifying. Truexs car chief Blake Harris was suspended for the weekend.

Alec Aleywine pitched five strong innings, had three hits and knocked in five runs as the Com-modores dominated Andrew College 17-2 to win the second game of the twinbill.The opener was almost the direct opposite as the Commodores, 10-7, were held to three hits during a 6-2 loss. Colby Mullins of Blountstown, Brady Jones and Andrew Wing-ate silenced Gulf Coasts offense and the Fighting Tigers snapped a 2-2 tie with three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to take control.Will Barry had four hits for Andrew and Dahlton Cash drove in two runs. Ben Rowdon had an RBI for Gulf Coast.The Commodores erupted for 13 runs in the second game before Andrew could respond. Aleywine went five innings and struck out eight and Peyton Knight relieved and fanned three.Brett Wisely added four RBIs, Malik Spratling had three hits and three RBIs and JT Duncan had three hits for the Commodores.Gulf Coast plays a single game on Tuesday at Wallace Dothan.Gulf Coast splits pair The Associated PressPITTSBURGH „ Vir-ginias players waited until after their win over Pittsburgh to celebrate their outright regularseason Atlantic Coast Conference title.They probably could have started at halftime.The top-ranked Cava-liers allowed just seven points in the first half, took a 30-7 lead into the break and cruised to their 15th victory in 16 conference games, 66-37 over the hapless Panthers. We got off to a good start and we tried to not let up in any way,Ž Virginia coach Tony Bennett said.Virginia (26-2, 14-1 ACC) had already clinched at least a share of first place with a home win over Georgia Tech on Wednesday, but they were eager to clinch an outright title.It was something that we knew about coming into this game, so it was exciting,Ž forward Isaiah Wilkins said. It is a good feeling, but there is still a lot of basketball to be played.ŽNo. 1 Virginia routs Pitt, claims ACC title

Though theyre both on snow, skiing and snowboarding are simply not supposed to mix. Though she could have been expected to win at one, nobody was sup-posed to do what she did. The Czech speed racer did what was considered impossible a mere week ago. She nabbed the second half of an unheard-of Olympic double by winning gold in snowboardings parallel giant slalom Saturday, only seven days after doing the same in skiings Alpine super-G. Both these sports have well-known stars that have shined brightly over the two weeks of action on the slopes in South Korea: Chloe Kim, Mikaela Shif-frin and Lindsey Vonn are just a few. None have changed the conversation about what the Olympics can be in quite the manner as this soft-spoken 22-year-old from Prague, who insisted on wearing her goggles to the winners news conference, just as she did after her skiing win. Do whatever you want,Ž Ledecka said, when asked what the takeaway should be from her Olympic journey. If you want to choose just one, choose one. I wanted to choose both, and a lot of people were telling me that its not possible to get on the top in both. And, I mean, obviously, this. It is not easy.ŽShe made it look easy on the last day of competition at the action park in an event that is usually considered an afterthought on the snowboarding program „ but not this time. This was no miracle on snow, a la her .01second victory in the super-G that left her wondering if there had been some kind of mis-take. Ledecka came into that event having started in only 19 World Cup skiing races in her entire career.Two gold medals for Czech racer Ledecka


** The Associated PressPITTSBURGH „ Vir-ginias players waited until after their win over Pittsburgh to celebrate their outright regular-season Atlantic Coast Conference title.They probably could have started at halftime.The top-ranked Cavaliers allowed just seven points in the first half, took a 30-7 lead into the break and cruised to their 15th victory in 16 conference games, 66-37 over the hapless Panthers.We got off to a good start and we tried to not let up in any way,Ž Virginia coach Tony Bennett said.Virginia (26-2, 14-1 ACC) had already clinched at least a share of first place with a home win over Georgia Tech on Wednes-day, but they were eager to clinch an outright title. CREIGHTON 89, No. 3 VILLANOVA 83, OT: Marcus Foster scored 28 points, Davion Mintz gave Creighton the lead for good early in overtime, and the Bluejays defeated the highest-ranked opponent in program history with an 89-83 upset of No. 3 Villanova on Saturday.

Neither team shot well from the ” oor with Tennessee shooting 39 percent and Ole Miss shooting 34 percent. No. 21 WEST VIRGINIA 85, IOWA STATE 70: Jevon Carter scored 24 points and made some history as West Virginia pulled away to beat Iowa State.

The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 C5No. 1 Virginia routs Pitt, claims outright ACC title By John MarshallThe Associated PressThe first blow to college basketball came in September, when a federal investigation revealed hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and kick-backs being funneled to influence recruits.The games went on under the dark cloud hang-ing over the sport, the season playing out while everyone wondered when the other sneaker would drop.It did on Friday, when a Yahoo Sports report revealed documents from the federal inquiry show-ing more than two dozen players and their relatives received a wide range of impermissible benefits, from meals to five-figure payments.This second black eye comes 16 days before the field of 68 is selected for the sports marquee event, the NCAA Tournament.These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America,Ž NCAA President Mark Emmert said. Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports. They are an affront to all those who play by the rules.ŽNow that the second blow has been struck, two questions arise: What can the NCAA do about it? Do fans even care?In September, the Justice Department arrested 10 people, including assistant coaches from Arizona, Southern Califor-nia, Auburn and Oklahoma State. The federal investigation alleged bribes and kickbacks were used to influence star players choice of schools, shoe sponsors, agents, tailors. Payments of up to $150,000, supplied by Adidas, were promised to at least three top high school recruits to attend two schools sponsored by the shoe company, accord-ing to federal prosecutors.The documents obtained by Yahoo include bank records and expense reports from former NBA agent Andy Miller and his agency, ASM Sports. Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Kentucky and Michigan State are among the schools involved.The documents, obtained in discovery phase of the investigation, also link current players including Michigan States Miles Bridges, Dukes Wendell Carter and Alabamas Collin Sexton to potential benefits that would be violations of NCAA rules.The NCAA was obvi-ously outraged, but is in a difficult spot. The docu-ments have not been made public and the organization cant exactly take action against schools or players based upon a report by a news agency. Should the information be made public before or during the NCAA Tour-nament, the NCAA would be faced with potentially having to declare some of the nations top players ineligible and impose sanctions on many of the games most recognizable programs. The NCAA Tournament has generated $19.6 billion in TV money over the past 22 years and a tarnished product could hurt the bottom line.Long term, it could force the NCAA to take a much harder look at its amateurism rules. The organization has had many discussions about this, but the magnitude of the latest allegations could spin the conversation forward much quicker.This problem can be solved if players are compensated,Ž said Don Jackson, an Alabama attorney who has worked on numerous college eligi-bility cases. The NCAA is not capable of adequately policing tens of thousands of athletes around the country.ŽThe report has already sent ripples across the sport.San Diego State provi-sionally suspended senior forward Malik Pope, the teams leading scorer and rebounder, while its compliance department investigates whether he received a $1,400 loan from an agent.Texas is withholding junior guard Eric Davis Jr. from competition until further notice after he allegedly received, accord-ing to the documents, a $1,500 loan from ASM Sports associate Christian Dawkins.On Saturday, Kentucky announced its internal review found no eligibility issues or rules violations with current players such as freshman forward Kevin Knox, who was mentioned in the report. Fans may not care.Back-room payments have been college bas-ketballs dirty little secret for years and many fans assume most top-name players are being paid to play.College hoops darkened again by new allegationsBank records and other expense reports that are part of a federal probe into college basketball show Tim Quarterman, now playing for the Agua Caliente Clippers of the NBA G League, received at least $16,000 while a junior at LSU, according to a Yahoo Sports report. [JOHN BAZEMORE/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] Virginias Jack Salt, left, blocks a shot by Pittsburghs Monty Boykins during Saturdays game in Pittsburgh. [KEITH SRAKOCIC/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] The Associated PressPALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. „ Luke List can understand why he might be overlooked in the Honda Classic, even with a shot at his first PGA Tour victory.He felt that Saturday while taking the lead.List and Jamie Lovemark were trading birdies and keeping clean cards on the front nine at PGA National before an audience of no more than a few dozen people. Everyone else was busy watching Tiger Woods try to stay close enough to contention.I know Ill be an under-dog going against Justin Thomas and guys like that, which is fine,Ž List said. Its kind of nice having Tiger in the field now because he takes all the attention off everybody else, so you can just kind of go out and do your own thing.ŽHis thing was strong enough at PGA National. List finished with a pair of birdies around his lone bogey for a 4-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Thomas and Webb Simpson. List was at 7-under 203.Woods made bogeys on the notorious par 3s on the back nine, and fin-ished with a birdie for a 69. It was the first time he broke 70 on the PGA Tour in the 12 rounds since he first stepped away with a series of back surgeries after the 2015 Wyndham Championship. And while only 10 play-ers were ahead of him, Woods still was seven shots behind.Ive got a shot going into tomorrow,Ž Woods said.Thomas was never far away from the lead, and the final hour changed everything. The PGA champion had three bird-ies over his last five holes for a 65 to match the low round of the toughest tournament this year on the PGA Tour.Particularly impres-sive was that two of those birdies were on the par-3 15th and par-3 17th, the secondand third-tough-est holes at PGA National on Saturday. He essentially hit the same shot, a cut 6-iron into the wind to right pins and made 15-footers.In between those par 3s was a tough par save when he hit out of a fairway bunker, into the wind and over the water to the back right green. He played a lofted pitch to 7 feet and holed it for par, a big improvement from the previous day when he four-putted the 16th for a double bogey.I felt like if I parred those holes in, I would have a great chance,Ž Thomas said. But making those birdies, it will definitely give me a better chance.ŽSimpson, the former U.S. Open champion who has not won in more than four years, played bogey-free for a 66, a card kept clean by a remarkable bunker save with an awk-ward stance behind the 15th green.List has the lead, though it probably wont feel like one with six players sepa-rated by only three shots.

Niskanen beat Russian rival Alexander Bolshunov with a strong sprint in the 50-kilometer mass start to give Finland its “ rst gold of the games. The “ rst, but not the last,Ž Niskanen said. Tomorrow is a new day. I (was) wanting to win my gold medal (over) this distance and it had been long years.Ž Niskanen won the marathon event in 2 hours, 8 minutes, 22.1 seconds „ more than 18 seconds ahead of Bolshunov. MEDAL HEADS Norway leads the medals table with 13 gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze, breaking the record of 37 overall set at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics by the Americans. Its just a really cool feeling to feel that the whole team succeeded today,Ž Nina Haver-Loeseth said after Norway edged France for the bronze. I think that Norwegian Alpine skiers had a very successful Olympics. Weve been at the medal plaza, cheering our teammates on and I was like, We are not leaving here without a medal. So it means a lot.Ž MASS-START SPEEDSKATING In the last speedskating event at the Gangneung Oval, Lee Seunghoon delivered the Olympic host nations “ rst gold medal. Lee won the inaugural mens mass start Saturday, highlighting a strong showing for the South Korean team on the “ nal night of speedskating competition. Its the “ rst competition and at home,Ž Lee said after crying on the medal stand. Its been a long-time dream for me and unbelievable.Ž Kim Bo-reum added a silver for South Korea in the womens race. Kim was involved in a national scandal when she and another skater left their team pursuit teammate well behind in a quali“ er earlier this week. I have nothing else to say other than I am so sorry,Ž Kim said. On Saturday, Kim nearly matched the “ nishing kick of Nana Takagi, who earned her second gold medal of the games. She was also part of the Japanese team that won gold in the pursuit. HOCKEY The Canadians hugged each other and happily celebrated an Olympic hockey medal that isnt the color they prefer. At a tournament where the NHL stars stayed away, the Canadians who played at the Pyeongchang Games were just ecstatic not to be going home empty-handed. Andrew Ebbett, Chris Kelly and Derek Roy each scored in the “ rst period, and Canada took the bronze medal by beating the Czech Republic 6-4 Saturday. This was the third bronze for Canada to go along with nine gold medals for the country that created hockey and won the last two mens Olympic titles. This latest medal boosts Canadas medal haul to 29. OH, CANADA South Korean police say theyve detained a Canadian ski cross competitor, his wife and a coach for allegedly taking a car during the Pyeongchang Olympics. Police on Saturday said the three allegedly got into a car in front of a bar and d rove it near the Pyeongchang athletes village before they were detained by police on patrol. Police say all three were intoxicated when they were stopped.The Associated Press SATURDAYS SPOTLIGHT MEDAL COUNTThrough Feb. 24 Country G S B T Norway 13 14 11 38 Canada 11 8 10 29 Germany 13 8 7 28 United States 9 8 6 23 Netherlands 8 6 6 20 OA Russia 1 6 9 16 South Korea 5 6 4 15 Switzerland 5 6 4 15 France 5 4 6 15 Austria 5 3 6 14 Japan 4 5 4 13 Sweden 6 6 0 12 Italy 3 2 5 10 China 1 6 2 9 Czech Republic 2 2 3 7 Britain 1 0 4 5 Finland 1 0 4 5 Belarus 2 1 0 3 Slovakia 1 2 0 3 Australia 0 2 1 3 Poland 1 0 1 2 Slovenia 0 1 1 2 New Zealand 0 0 2 2 Spain 0 0 2 2 Hungary 1 0 0 1 Ukraine 1 0 0 1 Belgium 0 1 0 1 Kazakhstan 0 0 1 1 Latvia 0 0 1 1 Liechtenstein 0 0 1 1GAMES FACESRescued from Korean War by US ship, now Olympic volunteers Their nicknames, bestowed upon them long ago: Kimchi 1Ž and Kimchi 5,Ž babies born aboard a ship that was helping them ” ee a war and a regime that, thanks to their rescuers, theyd never have to face. Sohn Yang Young says he owes his life to the U.S. military. So does his friend Lee Gyeong Pil. They were among “ ve babies born on an American ship that ferried 14,000 Korean refugees, including their parents, from North Korea in one of the worlds largest humanitarian evacuation operations ever. U.S. sailors from a ship called the SS Meredith Victory named the babies Kimchi 1 through Kimchi 5, nicknames that have become a symbol of the South Korean-U.S military alliance. They are 67 now, all of them, and the whereabouts of three are not known. But the “ nal two „ Sohn is Kimchi 1 and Lee Kimchi 5 „ are making their way around the Pyeongchang Olympics, promoting peace and reminding younger generations of South Koreans of their Korean War history. On Friday, they were in Gangne ungs curling center, where South Koreas womens squad made a storybook run to the “ nals. The two men were volunteering for the Olympics with their wives, checking spectators tickets and guiding them to the right gates. Im the fruits of the South KoreaU.S. alliance,Ž Sohn said. The U.S. military is the savior of our lives and they saved my parents and other refuges. I always feel grateful to the U.S. military.Ž Both Sohn and Lee say they feel comfortable being called Kimchi „ happy, even. During a joint interview, they often called each other by those monikers and said they were Kimchi brothers.Ž Lees business card, in fact, shows Kimchi 5Ž written alongside his name both in Korean and English. I didnt become Kimchi 1 because I wanted it. It was like my destiny,Ž said Sohn, who runs a steel products trading company. Their parents were among tens of thousands of civilians who gathered at North Koreas northeastern Hungnam port in December 1950, hoping to board one of about 190 U.S. vessels originally mobilized to evacuate U.S. troops retreating from advancing Chinese and North Korean troops. THE COVERAGEHighlights from media coverage of the Pyeongchang Olympics: LEFT UNSAID: NBC aired a touching tribute to the late American bobsledder Steve Holcomb, and the impact he had on his sports tight-knit community. The failure to mention how an Olympic athlete died at only 37 years old (he was found last May in Lake Placid, N.Y., with alcohol and sleeping pills in his system) was a distraction, however. Lester Holt did reveal that in a Nightly NewsŽ feature on Holcomb earlier Friday, but you cant assume audience overlap. Similarly, the coverage of American speedskater Shani Davis seventh-place “ nish in his quest to win a third gold medal was oddly muted. Why wasnt he a factor in the race? Was it simply because Davis, at 35, is on an athletic decline? Davis, who had expressed displeasure when he wasnt selected as the American teams ” agbearer for the opening ceremony, has not made things any easier by not talking to the media. Still, its hard not to contrast the attention his effort received compared to Shaun White, another American athlete who came to the Pyeongchang Games looking for a third gold medal. TALKING MIKAELA: Mike Tiricos interview with Mikaela Shiffrin was strong, as the American skier talked about coming to terms with expectations and results in Pyeongchang. It was a welcome chance to stretch out for Tirico, who hasnt had an opportunity to do much beyond guiding viewers from event to event. RATINGS: An estimated 17.3 million people watched the Olympics on NBC, NBCSN or streaming services on Thursday night, down 13 percent from the 20.3 million who watched the corresponding night in Sochi four years ago. The NBC-only audience of 15.2 million was down 25 percent, the Nielsen company said. The conclusion of the womens “ gure skating competition is usually one of a Winter Olympics big events, and this year featured a tense duel between Russian teammates Alina Zagitova and Evgenia Medvedeva. But a poor showing by the U.S. skaters eliminated a rooting interest for much of NBCs audience. 1968: Tennis great Serena Williams narrates a 90-minute documentary, 1968,Ž which focuses on the turbulent year and the Olympics in Mexico City. The clenched-“ st gesture by American track athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos on a medal stand was a memorable event during those games. NBC will air the documentary at 4:10 p.m. on Sunday. It will also air on NBCSN as part of a three-hour documentary block starting at 11:30 a.m. and be streamed on NBCs Olympic web site.The Associated Press By Jimmy GolenThe Associated PressGANGNEUNG, South Korea „ John Shusters last throw in the eighth end of the Olympic curling final clacked off one Swedish stone and knocked it into another, sending them both skittering out of scoring range.Five yellow-handled Ameri-can rocks were left behind.The score, known as a five-ender, is so rare it has only been topped once before in the history of the mens or womens Olympic final. And it effectively clinched gold for Shusters erstwhile rejects,Ž who ral-lied from the brink of pool play elimination to claim only the second curling medal ever for the United States.Its hard to rationalize want-ing to do it,Ž vice-skip Tyler George said after the Ameri-cans beat favored Sweden 10-7 in nine ends in the gold medal match on Saturday. But then days like this happen.Ž With the King of Sweden and Ivanka Trump looking on „ and bolstered by social media mes-sages from actor Mr. T., NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers and speedskater Dan Jansen „ Shuster skipped the Americans from a 2-4 record at the start of pool play to five wins in a row, starting with a victory over three-time defending Olympic champion Canada. No U.S. curling team, men or women, had ever beaten Canada at the Winter Games. Shusters team did it again in the semifinals.That set up a gold medal match with Sweden, the world championship runner-up and top winner in pool play, includ-ing a 10-4 victory over the Americans on Feb. 16.After three back-and-forth ends in the final, the Swedes squandered a point in the fourth despite having the last-rock advantage known as the hammer. (The call was too close to be made with the naked eye; an umpire measured it with a gadget that goes to the millimeter.)From there, Sweden was playing catch-up.Tied 5-5 in the eighth, but with the Americans controlling the hammer, Sweden skip Niklas Edin failed on a double-takeout, clearing away just one of the two stones he was aiming for. That left Shuster with a relatively mundane shot for an almost unprecedented score. (Canadas six-ender in the 2006 mens final was the only other score of more than four in an Olympic gold medal match).During the entire end we could kind of feel it building. Their margin for error got really small,Ž Shuster said in the news conference with team-mates team Tyler George, Matt Hamilton, John Landsteiner and alternate Joe Polo. I cant tell you how un-nervous I was sit-ting in the hack to throw it. Just let it go.ŽThe Americans played defense in the ninth end to avoid giving up a big score. Sweden scored two, but with the hammer going to the United States for the 10th, a victory was out of reach. On his second-to-last stone, Edin made a spin-o-rama out of the starting block, bringing laughter from the crowd. Then he shook hands to concede the match.When I missed (in the eighth), we knew for sure he was going to make that double, and we knew we were going to lose,Ž said Edin, who said he threw in the spin to lighten the mood so that perhaps he could get a silver medal without throwing it into the sea.ŽI dont know if I would use the word fun in that situation,Ž Edin said. Instead of just shaking hands, it was one of those moves that youre trying to give the crowd, all the disap-pointment we felt, give them a little something back.ŽWith Trump clapping along, the American fans in the crowd chanted U-S-A!ŽSwitzerland, which beat Canada in the third-place game on Friday, joined the finalists on the podium to receive its bronze medals. Sweden got silver.But when the Americans looked at the medals draped around their necks, there was a problem: They had been given the ones engraved for the womens winners. The correct medals were quickly swapped out.Shuster brushed it off: A gold medal in curling is a gold medal in curling.ŽSouth Korea will play Sweden in the womens final on Sunday. Japan beat Britain 5-3 in the womens bronze medal match on Saturday.A four-time Olympian who won bronze in 2006 with Polo „ the United States only other curling medal „ Shuster left that team after Turin to form his own foursome and skipped them back to the Winter Games in Vancouver.But he performed so badly he was benched, and then finished ninth of 10 teams in Sochi. After failing to make the national training program the next year, Shuster teamed up with two of the others who were cut (and George, who hadnt even tried out) and called themselves Team Reject.ŽThey beat all of the teams chosen instead of them.From the day the 2014 Olympics came to an end, every single day was with this journey in mind,Ž said Shuster, adding that he was inspired by Jansens ability to bounce back from six years of tragedy and Olympic failure to win his final speedskating race.Time and time again, he got back up and he wrote his story, and hes an Olympic champion,Ž Shuster said. Im so proud that I was able to do something similar.ŽUS men win curling gold, beat SwedenUnited Statess skip John Shuster reacts during the mens “ nal curling match against Sweden at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 C7 SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFDUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATESNo comeback for Kasatkina as Svitolina wins againTop-seeded Elina Svi-tolina retained her Dubai Championships title on Saturday with a 6-4, 6-0 win over unseeded Daria Kasatkina, who was finally unable to make a comeback. It was the 11th singles title for the 23-year-old Svitolina, who had won a tour-high five titles in 2017, and added Brisbane to that list earlier this year. The fourth-ranked Ukrainian improved to 14-2 for the year.Svitolina became the third player in the history of the tournament to successfully defend her title after Justine Henin (2003 and 2004) and Venus Williams (2009 and 2010).Svitolina had won both previous matchups with Kasatkina who was aiming for her second career singles title.MINNEAPOLISTimberwolves Butler has meniscal injury to kneeMinnesota All-Star Jimmy Butler has a meniscal injury to his right knee that the Tim-berwolves are optimistic will not sideline him rest of the season as they try to end the NBAs longest playoff drought.The team stopped short of calling the injury a tear, and coach Tom Thibodeau said he didnt want to speculate on timing. Still, the news Saturday couldve been worse for the orga-nization, which feared a season-ending torn liga-ment after Butler had to be helped off the floor Friday night in a loss at Houston.Nemanja Bjelica started in Butlers place on Saturday night against the Chicago Bulls.Butler was hurt in the third quarter of Minnesotas 120-102 loss and had the MRI on Saturday at Mayo Clinic. In his first season with the Timberwolves, Butler has helped lead the team to the thick of the West-ern Conference race, averaging 22.2 points. They entered Saturdays game against Chicago, Butlers old team, in fourth place and in posi-tion to end their 13-year playoff absence.EDMONTON, ALBERTAOilers trade defenseman Davidson to IslandersThe Oilers traded defenseman Brandon Davidson to the New York Islanders for a 2019 third-round draft pick Saturday.Davidson, 26, has three goals and two assists in 36 games with Edmonton and the Montreal Canadiens this season.Davidson, a 2010 sixth-round draft pick by Edmonton, was waived by Montreal in December before being claimed by the Oilers.Davidson has appeared in 137 regular-season NHL games, with eight goals and 12 assists with 59 penalty minutes. He has also played in three playoff games. The Associated Press By Kristie RiekenThe Associated PressWEST PALM BEACH, Fla. „ Brad Peacock went into spring training last year with the Hous-ton Astros worried he wouldnt make the team. After the best season of his career, the righthanders spot with the club is now secure. Even so, hes maintained the same mindset he had when his career was on the line. I still want to keep that edge on me,Ž he said.Out of options after four unimpressive seasons in Houston, things didnt look good for Peacock this time a year ago. But his solid spring, coupled with some inju-ries, gave him one more chance to prove himself with the Astros. He more than took advantage of the situation, winning 13 games after getting just 11 wins combined in his first five major league seasons. His 3.00 ERA and 161 strikeouts were also the best of his career, and he appeared in a career-high 34 games. Peacock opened the season as a reliever, but took a spot in the rota-tion when injuries began to pile up in May. He won eight games from June 4-Aug. 4 to steady Hous-tons pitching staff until everyone got healthy. He started one game in the postseason and came out of the bullpen for six more. He pitched in four games of the World Series and finished with a 2.45 ERA and eight strikeouts to help the Astros beat the Dodgers for their first title. Peacock credits his success last year to changing almost every-thing after hed struggled to be consistent for years. Now that hes found suc-cess, hes staying with the same approach both physically and mentally. I want to still try and impress everybody, the coaches and everybody,Ž he said. I dont want to ever get too comfortable in his game because it will humble you pretty quick.ŽManager A.J. Hinch isnt surprised to hear how Peacock is treating this spring.I think once youve experienced maybe a broken career path or youre not really sure where you fit on a team ... you dont ever forget that as a player,Ž Hinch said. I think the mindset of just continuing to show up for spring, having to prove yourself is a very good one. Hes never been someone to take something for granted. So I wouldnt expect that to happen now.ŽPeacock has bounced between the bullpen and the rotation for his entire career and could be in the same role this season. With an overabundance of starters, Peacock will likely open the season as a reliever, but could be the first option if Hous-ton needs a spot starter. Peacock eager to build on breakout season By Dave CampbellThe Associated PressFORT MYERS, Fla. „ Nearly two full weeks into spring training, dozens of accomplished free agents around the major leagues are still unsigned.Theres a new rule limiting visits to the mound, too, creating at least some early confusion about how to keep track.So while their collective bargaining agreement runs through four more seasons, players have been expressing more frustration with owners lately than usual during an off-season marked by increased tension between the sides.The goal of collective bargaining is not labor peace. Its a fair and equitable deal. Fifteen months in, were seeing things that weve never seen before, and that raises concerns,Ž union leader Tony Clark said. Well have to figure out in the near term and in the longer term how those concerns can be addressed, because invariably if they are affecting the industry adversely, everybody should have that concern.ŽClark began his annual tour of camps on Saturday with Boston. Clark said after the meeting in the Red Sox club-house that the unions special training camp for free agents in Bradenton will stay open indefinitely. About one-third of the 166 players who exercised free agency rights last November have not reached a contract agreement, including stars like starting pitcher Jake Arrieta and third baseman Mike Moustakas.Signings have begun to pick up over the past week, though. Clark acknowledged not every player will find a team.Wed love everybody to be signed,Ž he said. But the truth is at the end of every offseason, in every year you go back to as far back as I can recall, there are always guys who are at home at the end of the offseason. The key is going to be at the end of this one, seeing where we are and perhaps if theres an explanation as to why, and then determine based on that explanation, assuming there is one or there isnt one, try to appreciate what the next steps might look like.ŽMajor League Baseball, in a statement earlier this month, attributed the amount of unsigned players to a misread of the marketplace and denied any deliberate attempt at field-ing noncompetitive clubs.In baseball, it has always been true that clubs go through cyclical, multiyear strategies directed at winning,Ž the MLB statement read.Clark didnt directly answer a question about whether charges of collusion are founded. He said everythings worthy of more discussionŽ on the subject of a potential tanking tax or a payroll floor for a future collective bargaining agreement. Clark cited the amount of teams with payrolls nowhere near the competitive balance tax threshold of $197 million as a reason for the unions dissatisfaction with the winter.If teams arent competing, despite the fact that founda-tion for the system is such that every team is supposed to, thats a problem,Ž Clark said. And if its happening to the extreme that were seeing now and thats the new norm, thats a problem.ŽFor the moment, the biggest challenge for managers, coaches and players will be sorting out the pace-of-play rule that generally limits mound visits without a pitching change to six per nine-inning game.Were working on it, but its a lot more complicated than people think,Ž Red Sox man-ager Alex Cora said.For example: The third base-man might come to the mound to settle a pitcher or talk to him about strategy for defending a bunt. That would count as one visit, according to the new rule. Cora said hes told his infield-ers to stay away and avoid the potential problem.Visits to the mound have increased in recent years in part because teams are trying to defend sign stealing in an era with more high-definition cameras at the ballparks. The runner on second base used to be the chief vehicle for such subterfuge.No matter how much you try to anticipate how its going to affect the game, it doesnt always end up the way you had anticipated,Ž Clark said, adding: Guys have a lot of concerns, but we are hopeful that at some level, the changes and the result of those changes on the games themselves can be mitigated so were not talking about pace of game as much as everyones talking about the fantastic players on the field.ŽSaid Clark: You w ont find any player in any clubhouse that has an interest in play-ing 3or four-hour games. They want to play the type of games that fans enjoy seeing. They want to play the type of games that fans are crisp and excitable.ŽClark: Players concerned about unsigned free agentsTony Clark, executive director of the Major League Players Association, answers questions at a Feb. 2017 news conference in Phoenix. [MORRY GASH/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora, seen here in the dugout during a spring training game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday in Fort Myers, Fla., said the biggest challenge managers and players still have to sort out is the new pace-of-play rule limiting mound visits to six per game.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 D3PANAMA CITY Loropetalum chinenseare in bloom at Arby's on Martin Luther King Boulevard. The Loropetalum are planted at least 4 feetapart, which I'd recommend for the home owner. I believe the variety is Purple Diamond. Plant in full sun or partial shade. The height is 4-6 feetand 4-5 feetwide. How not to plant them may be seen at the roundabout at 19th Street and State Avenue, where some are planted 1 footapart. The following are some other varieties for your consideration: (1) Purple Pixie, 1-2 feettall and 4-5 feetwide (2) Purple Daydream, 2-3 feettall and 3-4 feetwide, and (3) Red Diamond, 4-6 feethigh and 4-5 feetwide. Loropetalum is sometimes called Chinese Fringe Bush. You need to apply fertilizer in March, June, and September to encourage growth. For a backdrop, you might plant Pittosporum, Ligustrum, or Viburnum. What I like about this plant is within a year it grows on its own. Wait until the plant is through blooming before pruning. Last year, I observed several maintenance groups pruning them while they were still in bloom. If you've pruned your azaleas properly, you should be seeing only the blooms. If a lot of leaves are showing, you didn't prune it properly during the summer months. You can prune new growth as late as the end of August.While at the nurserylast week, I saw two shrubs you might want to add to your yard: (1) Flirt Nandina, which is a dwarf form growing 1-2 feettall and (2) Blush Pink (Nandina domestica), which has blush-colored young foliage and deep green mature foliage. I forgot to mention last week that Heavenly Bamboo is (Nandina domestica) and a dwarf form is called Harbour Dwarf. While leaving the golf course last Friday, I saw several gardenias covered with sooty mold fungus. Many insects such as aphids, whiteflies, and mealybugs secrete a material called Honeydew. This black fungus feeds on this material. Spray regularly with an insecticide to prevent this fungus. For those with citrus, you may do the following: (1) Prune all suckers from base (2) Remove old fruit and spray with copper sulfate to control black spots on your foliage. Howard C.

Highlight in History: On Feb. 25, 1793 President George Washington held the “ rst Cabinet meeting on record at his Mount Vernon home; attending were Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton, Secretary of War Henry Knox and Attorney General Edmund Randolph. On this date: In 1507 Englands Queen Elizabeth I was excommunicated by Pope Pius V, who accused the monarch of heresy. In 1836 inventor Samuel Colt patented his revolver. In 1905 the Upton Sinclair novel The JungleŽ was “ rst published in serial form by the Appeal to Reason newspaper. In 1913 the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving Congress the power to levy and collect income taxes, was declared in effect. In 1922 French serial killer Henri Landru, convicted of murdering 10 women and the son of one of them, was executed in Versailles. In 1964 Eastern Airlines Flight 304, a DC-8, crashed shortly after taking off from New Orleans International Airport, killing all 58 on board. Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) became world heavyweight boxing champion as he defeated Sonny Liston in Miami Beach. In 1986 President Ferdinand Marcos ” ed the Philippines after 20 years of rule in the wake of a tainted election; Corazon Aquino assumed the presidency. In 1991 during the Persian Gulf War, 28 Americans were killed when an Iraqi Scud missile hit a U.S. barracks in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. In 1994 American-born Jewish settler Baruch Goldstein opened “ re with an automatic ri” e inside the Tomb of the Patriarchs in the West Bank, killing 29 Muslims before he was beaten to death by worshipers. In 2008 a 2006 Associated Press photograph of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama wearing traditional local garb during a visit to Kenya began circulating online; the Obama campaign accused Hillary Clintons campaign of being responsible, a charge rejected by Clinton of“ cials. A Panama City doctors medical license is on the line after the state health department alleges she illegally prescribed marijuana to a former patient. Dr. Raquel Skidmore, however, insists she gave nothing more than a recommendation, and stands behind the health benefits of the drug. Richard Weber: "Conservatives are so incredibly paranoid about cannabis. They have been lied to for years without proof, now with the wave of legalization crossing the Country they feel challenged. Of course that describes anything that conservatives think might signal change. I wonder if the FDOH even knows that Florida only allows low THC (TetraHydroCannabinol) to be dispensed from authorized dispensaries. (Low THC cannabis doesn't get the user high)! The alkaloid CBD (CannaBiDiol), which is in higher concentration in legal FL cannabis, “ ghts the symptoms of cancer like lack of appetite and pain. Of course the illegal variety of marijuana commonly available on many street corners in Bay County is high in THC. Many people who would derive physical relief with cannabis are forced by Florida's Government to pursue the illegal means of getting it! In other words, the State is forcing people to become criminals! Somehow that would seem to be un-Constitutional!" Marilyn Guthrie Smith: "This is ridiculous. Everyone knows this is just the prosecution and sheriffs of“ ce ” exing their dictatorial muscles. I “ nd it interesting, as well as mystifying, that Bay County does as it pleases when it comes to state law. Most people do not know that the (illegally) annexed railroad track on north 231 allow the Panama City Police Department to ticket, arrest, and collect for tickets issued OUTSIDE of the PCPDs jurisdiction in cont ravention of state law which prohibits this annexation. There has never been a signed agreement between the city and county, but that makes no difference inasmuch as it is violation of the laws of Florida." DEAR ABBY: I am a 70-yearold male former teacher and social worker. I stopped dating 30 years ago because the only women I had loved had all dumped me. I felt I was only a temporary convenience to them. Since then, I havent been romantically involved with anyone so I would not be dumped again. However, I am lonely for female companionship and afraid Ill die without ever having had another girlfriend. Im not attracted to women my age, and I dont see younger women being attracted to an overweight old guy who isnt even scraping by on Social Security. Dating services dont screen their members. Is there a solution for this problem? „ HOPELESS IN MISSOURIDEAR HOPELESS: Im sorry women in your age range dont qualify, because it would be easier for you if they did.

However, if that doesnt open some doors and some hearts, because youre looking for unconditional love, consider adopting a puppy. DEAR ABBY: I am currently in a relationship thats great except for one thing. She knows what buttonsŽ to push to make me angry, and shell continue to push them. No matter what I do, shes in my face. It just seems she wants to argue until I reach the point of exploding.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 E1 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW We live in a country where liberals are constantly working to get rid of things that were once sacred to America. Theyve taken God out of our public schools. Theyve politicized and disrespected our national anthem. Now, exploiting a tragic school shooting in Florida, theyre aiming to get rid of our guns. Liberals think turning America into a gunfree zone will make our schools safe and stop sick young men from going on bloody killing sprees like the one in Parkland. The clamor for stricter gun control by the mainstream media and leading Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer is as simplistic as it was predictable. But its not the guns, stupids. Its not what a disturbed 19yearold boy has in his hands that makes him kill. Its what he does not have in his heart „ love. I dont want to sound like a bleeding heart who thinks the Parkland shooter is a victim of society or is not totally responsible for his horrible crime. But I havent seen any evidence yet that he had anyone who loved him or truly cared about him after his adoptive mother died last year. Like other mass shooters, he was an outcast, a clearly troubled, angry and strange kid with serious behavioral and emotional issues. He had been kicked out of high school and never got the mental health help everyone who knew him knew he badly needed. Adults failed him. But so did his peers. I wonder how many of the 3,000 kids in his school embraced him or consoled him after he lost his mother. How many of his welltodo suburban classmates from good families „ or his teachers „ showed him they really cared about his loss or tried to help him get through it? Not many, I bet. High school can be a nasty social and psychological experience, even for the most popular kids. Kids who are different, shy, poor, not-so-bright, adopted or simply deemed to be not coolŽ enough by More love, not gun control Michael ReaganSee REAGAN, E2Here is what has happened so far in Special Counsel Muellers collusion probe and how government has spent our $20 million. As the FBI was ignoring specific and spot-on citizens tips that could have stopped the Florida school shooting, it continued to chase around political campaign volunteers for not filling out their paperwork just right. In short, President Trump is now being chased down for obstructing the investigation of a crime that never occurred. Punishment for Trump could range from one to five years in prison to being forced to get an ageappropriate haircut. The whole thing is as confusing as a Trump family Mothers Day at Mar-a-Lago, so let me sum it up. Special Counsel Bob Mueller probes mandate was supposed to be the Trump campaigns collusion with Russia. VP Pence has distanced himself from it because he doesnt believe in man dates. Since there was never any evidence of Trump colluding with Russia to begin with, Muellers year-long investigation is morphing into anything he can find. Leaks said that Donald Trump Jr. met alone with a Russian lawyer before the election. The media was giddy for a week until they found out that nothing happened and that11 people were in that meeting room. Now they are looking into getting Donald Jr. for fire code violations. This whole time the Russians are laughing at us, because all they wanted to do is sow discord.Ž We really took the bait. Like bin Laden did to us with 9/11, we react by spending money and giving up freedoms to Homeland Security and the TSA; we spend trillions of dollars on wars of choice. We shouldnt flinch Thirteen Russians with fake Facebook accounts? Thats it? The Russkis equally supported Trump and Bernie Sanders/Hillary. There was no clear favorite in this de minimus bot campaign. Only $3,000 were spent in swing states, mostly after the election. Obamas State Department spent $300K in Israel trying to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama hated Yahus. All this is a stupid waste of money and an 13 Russians indicted; Boris and Natasha next Ron Hart By Joe ScarboroughSpecial to the Washington PostIt is hard to overstate Billy Grahams impact on American culture and the spread of Christianity across the globe. Graham, who died Wednesday at 99, preached the gospel of Christ to more souls than any other person since Jesus of Nazareth himself walked the Earth. Hundreds of millions listened to his sermons on the radio, or on television, or by streaming into coliseums, football stadiums and country churches. Whichever it was, they heard the Southern Baptist preacher deliver a simple message of faith, redemption and forgiveness. Despite his meteoric rise, despite the fact Time magazine considered him one of the most important people of the 20th century, and Gallup placed him on its most admiredŽ list 61 times, Graham remained a humble man. He considered himself more country preacher than groundbreaking theologian, always. That was one reason his message resonated with families like my own trying to cope with the vertiginous changes that shook the postwar world. Images of Vietnam, assassinations, riots and campus protests raced across evening newscasts, along with stories of sexual revolution and drug epidemics. Grahams broadcasts were an oasis of stability in a world gone mad. Whether it was connecting with my family in the Deep South or reaching the newly converted in subSaharan Africa, Graham took his crusades wherever people had ears to hear. More than a few Cold War hawks complained when that mission carried him to the Soviet Union seeking spiritual detente with communist leaders. But Graham ignored his critics. He believed the unbelievers of Moscow needed the gospel just as much as any Baptist in Miami or Meridian. Likewise, Grahams ministry reached beyond the masses to some of the most prominent leaders of his time. Queen Elizabeth surprised courtwatchers when she became enamored with Grahams preaching. His 1954-1955 crusadesŽ drew an audience of millions across Britain„ and earned him an audience with the queen that started a friendship that lasted throughout their lives. In 1995, Graham led Easter services at the royal familys private chapel. Elizabeth would bestow an honorary knighthood upon him in 2001. Better known was Grahams closeness with American presidents. He became friends with Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and many who followed. Jimmy Carter met him in the 1950s while working with Grahams organization to promote integration in Georgia. Johnson spent hours with Graham fretting about his personal salvation. George W. Bush credited the evangelical giant for his own conversion. Graham counseled these flawed men regardless of the policies they pursued or the parties they led. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham explained to me Wednesday how a few minutes in Grahams company revealed why the powerful sought his guidance. He had a remarkably reassuring pastoral presence,Ž Meacham said. Two minutes after meeting him, I realized why presidents in the maelstrom of power would want him around.Ž Still, there was a cost in this for Graham. Like many close to Nixon, his reputation was damaged after Watergate. When the Nixon tapes were released, Graham was shocked by the presidents crude language and obvious guilt. Many Americans were stunned to hear Graham express anti-Semitic sentiments. Though he apologized, the episode remains the darkest blot on his legacy. But Graham was also a positive voice for civil rights, promoting integration and personally removing racial barriers erected by event organizers. He used his influence to encourage Eisenhower to send troops to Little Rock so black students could peacefully enter segregated schools. Later, Graham would be attacked by fundamentalists for the respect he showed other faiths. In its obituary, Politico noted author Bruce Bawers observation that fundamentalists despise Graham as a sellout for affirming the value of the Catholic and Jewish faith.Ž That reaction is emblematic of a lack of grace in todays evangelical church. Grahams death leaves a void in a movement already shaken by the moral decline of its most prominent leaders. One can only hope the great preachers passing will cause some in that community of faith to reexamine their priorities. Taking a closer look at Billy Grahams example would be a good place to start.Todays evangelicals cou ld learn from Billy GrahamSee HART, E2This whole time the Russians are laughing at us, because all they wanted to do is sow discord.Ž We really took the bait.

** E2 Sunday, February 25, 2018 | The News Herald VIEWPOINTS unnecessary national embarrassment. It will backfire on Democrats. They want the verdict now, the trial later. Trump was sent to Washington to be indelicate. He harvested voters frustrations about Washington pettiness like this. His supporters like his firing of entrenched government dolts. He also goes against the PC nothingness diplomacy of his predecessors. We like that, too. He is the wrecking ball we sent there. Wrecking balls have balls and they wreck things. The media and the deep stateŽ did not elect Trump; we did. He was sent there to drain the swamp. Democrats breathless barrage of baseless accusations paints Trump as a Russian James Bond-type villain, Gold Hair.Ž They want all Republicans who have ordered a vodkabased drink in the last year to be investigated. Anyone who has ordered a Moscow Mule should be hauled before Bernie Sanders (who honeymooned in Russia) and asked to explain himself. It feels like the McCarthyism they purport to abhor. Trump was right about Comey. Saying the government spied on Trump Tower evoked cackles from the media, but he was spot-on. Trump called Comey a showboatŽ and a nut job,Ž and that is proving to be correct as well. Comey is proving to be a drama queen, which may not be fair since it sounds like they are describing FBI great J. Edgar Hoover. Like the Whitewater investigation of Bill Clinton, the only punch Mueller lands on Trump will probably be a blue dressŽ indictment. Rob Porter, Trumps Staff Secretary, had to resign over old spousal abuse allegations that the FBI should have uncovered in his background check. And The Donald faced anger from Melania as details surfaced over Trumps purported affair with porn star Stormy Daniels. Taking down famous men by women who all-of-a-sudden remember everything has become a fashionable trend. After the Stormy Daniels news broke, the press made a lot of gossip about Melania not attending the economic summit in Davos, Switzerland „a bold stand, since we all know how much Melania enjoys herself at economic summits in Europe. In short, the Mueller investigation has produced information we already knew: The Russians like to monkey with other countries elections. The media now feigns outrage! They do not like that Russians use their position in the media to misinform, propagandize and only give the side of a story that fits their narrative. Thats the mainstream medias role. Ron Hart, a libertarian syndicated oped humorist, award-winning author and TV/radio commentator, can be reached at Ron@, or visit HARTFrom Page E1 At 8:18 p.m. on May 4, 1970, just hours after Ohio National Guardsmen killed four students and wounded nine others during an antiwar rally at Kent State University, R.J. Casey of Pittsburgh sent this telegram to the mayor of Kent: As (the) father of a Kent State student as a graduate of Kent State University and as an American I demand immediate action against the Hitler youth who are trying to destroy our universities and plunge America into anarchy.Ž The next day, at 8:40 a.m., Mr. and Mrs. David DeClue of St. Louis sent this telegram to the mayor: Horrah for the National Guard. Nothing else worked; this might.Ž That same day, the mayor received this handwritten letter from Mrs. Frank M. John Bellaire of Texas: Thank God that someone is thinking about and doing something to bring (the) United States back to a decent place to live, even one little place like Kent. Maybe the rest of the university towns will also get some guts and help.Ž These and dozens more letters like them are part of the universitys Kent State ShootingsŽ digital archive. Reading themin the wake of the shootings that killed 14 students and three staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland is a potent reminder of what too often happens in this country when generations collide. Theres always been a certain percentage of Americans who dont age well. Their regrets for their own wasted youth or their misspent lives harden them and make them all-too-eager to see the next generation fail. The only thing thats changed for people like that is the forum for their rage. Students in Parkland and around the country are now demanding gun legislation reform, publicly and with an emerging eloquence that renders many of us tearful witnesses. They are planning the March for Our LivesŽ on March 24 in Washington, and the national momentum for this is growing. Students across the country are planning their own walkouts to protest this shameful inaction of Americas adults to protect our children. In response to their blooming activism, too many supposed adults „ fueled by right-wing media and pundits „ are mocking these young people. Particularly egregious are claims that these outspoken teenage survivors of the most recent massacre are FBI plants and Democratic pawns or, worse, crisis actorsŽ who flit from tragedy to tragedy to fire up opposition to guns. These attempts to rob these children of their authority are as baseless as they are despicable. This may explain why Donald Trump Jr. likedŽ two tweets attacking one of the most outspoken survivors, 17-year-old David Hogg. Its easy to see why the most hateful among us are targeting this young man. He is articulate and photogenic „ and he knows his mind. And so there he was, with CNNs Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night, defending himself against these false accusations. Im not a crisis actor,Ž he said. Im someone who had to witness this and live through this, and I continue to be having to do that.Ž Think about this. A week ago, this teenager was huddled in a dark closet with his classmates as a former student walked through the halls with an AR-15 and killed 17 people and injured more than a dozen others. Less than a week had passed, and he was on national television insisting that he was nobodys pawn. Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with Creators Syndicate.And the children shall lead you Connie Schultz Students in Parkland and around the country are now demanding gun legislation reform, publicly and with an emerging eloquence that renders many of us tearful witnesses. They are planning the March for Our LivesŽ on March 24 in Washington, and the national momentum for this is growing. Students across the country are planning their own walkouts to protest this shameful inaction of Americas adults to protect our children. In response to their blooming activism, too many supposed adults „ fueled by right-wing media and pundits „ are mocking these young people. the jocks, cheerleaders and leaders of the other cliques have it extra tough. Too often they are bullied, shunned, teased and „ in very rare cases „ transformed into angry kill-ers. When I went to school in the 1950s and the other kids found out I was adopted, I was teased un-mercifully. Being teased about being adopted, about being illegitimate, about being discarded by my real parents, hurt me. It also made me a very angry kid. But it never made me want to slaughter my classmates with the rifle my father gave me and taught me how to shoot when I was 10. Times and America have changed and theres no going back to the 1950s. But school kids today can be just as cruel to each other inside their intense and closed social bubble. I think the problem is actually worse now because we have a whole generation of kids whove grown up not hearing things like The Rev. Billy Grahams powerful message of love. The great evangelist and global crusader for Christ, who died this week, always ended his ser-mons with You dont have to listen to me today. But just remember one thing „ God loves you.Ž Too many kids today are growing up not knowing they are loved by God or anyone else. Their public schools dont teach such things to them because they dont want to offend anyone with God talk. Our schools teach to the test, not to the soul. Getting rid of guns, or controlling their ownership as strictly as they do in Australia, wont stop the next mass killing by a troubled school boy. More love might.

** The News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 E3 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEWOne way or another, Florida is going to spend money on opioid addiction. The state can devote money to prevention, treatment and education. Or it can keep paying the increasing costs of foster care, prison cells and expensive treatment for babies born addicted to drugs. Neither figure counts the cost of unemployment, domestic violence and other crimes committed as a direct result of opioid addiction. Nor does it include lost lives. In Florida, deaths from fentanyl, an ultra-potent prescription opioid that has become popular with addicts, have nearly doubled in the past year. With just a handful of days left in the 2017 session, Florida lawmakers appear to be considering Gov. Rick Scotts proposal to target $53 million in spending to fight opioid abuse, a number that even Scott supporters like Attorney General Pam Bondi seem to regard as inadequate „ telling GateHouse News Services John Kennedy that the sum is nothing,Ž given the number of lives that have been lost. Scott also ispushing legislation that would make it considerably harder to get prescription painkillers with high potential for abuse, including limits on how much medication doctors can prescribe at a time. Many patients would be limited to a three-day supply of the most potent painkillers, though patients with acute pain (as defined by the Legislature) would be able to get a seven-day supply. Bills with these limitations, and tougher regulations meant to discourage so-called pill mills,Ž are moving in the House and Senate. Lawmakers should tread lightly; its easy to see how these restrictions could make life very difficult „ and agonizing „ for patients who suffer from legitimate, intractable pain. At the least, the Legislature should extend the allowed prescription to cover the amount of medication needed for patients recovering from common operations. According to Florida surgeons, a 10to 14-day supply of pain medication makes more sense for someone who, for example, has undergone hip replacement. Beyond the pending legislation and the relatively modest investment in fighting opioid addiction are bigger questions. The biggest: Why has it taken Florida so long to respond to current addiction trends? This isnt the first time state leaders have dragged their feet. Floridas reluctance to address the pain clinics that popped up across the state in the mid-2000s led to the first wave of the prescription-drug addiction crisis; the state finally acted to shut down the worst offenders with tools such as a prescription drug database. But Scott pushed back against the database and eliminated the states office of drug control. As a result, Florida was ill-prepared to confront the wave of more potent painkillers and increasing numbers of prescription-drug associated deaths. That should change. Once this session is over, the states policy leaders should launch an intensive study of the current opioid crisis, looking at what other states are doing to successfully stem the tide of arrests, overdose deaths and births of addicted babies and creating a plan that adopts the most successful strategies. Once that plan is in place, it should be clear how additional state funding can be put to the best use „ recognizing that money spent on prevention and treatment will almost certainly result in Florida spending less to repair the wreckage opioid addiction leaves in its wake. This editorial first appeared in the Daytona Beach NewsJournal, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse MediaOUR VIEWFlorida lags in opioid ghtA recent article in The Guardian dons the foreboding title Robots will destroy our jobs „ and were not ready for it.Ž The article claims: For every job created by robotic automation, several more will be eliminated entirely. ... This disruption will have a devastating impact on our workforce.Ž According to an article in MIT Technology Review, business researchers Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee believe rapid technological change has been destroying jobs faster than it is creating them, contributing to the stagnation of median income and the growth of inequality in the United States. If technology is destroying jobs faster than its creating them, it is the first time in human history that its done so. Actually, the number of jobs is unlimited, for the simple reason that human wants are unlimited „ or they dont frequently reveal their bounds. People always want more of something that will create a job for someone. To suggest that there are a finite number of jobs commits an error known as the lump of labor fallacy.Ž That fallacy suggests that when automation or technology eliminates a job, theres nothing that people want that would create employment for the person displaced by the automation. In other words, all human wants have been satisfied. Lets look at a few examples. In 1790, farmers were 90 percent of the U.S. labor force. By 1900, only about 41 percent of our workers were employed in agriculture. Today less than 3 percent of Americans are employed in agriculture. And its a good thing. If 90 percent or 41 percent of our labor force were still employed in agriculture, where in the world would we find the workforce to produce all those goods and services that werent around in 1790 or 1900, such as cars, aircraft, TVs, computers, aircraft carriers, etc.? Indeed, if technology had not destroyed all of those agricultural jobs, we would be a much, much poorer nation. What about the claim that our manufacturing jobs are going to China „ a claim thats fueling the Trump administration to impose trade barriers? It is true that between 2001 and 2013, 3.2 million jobs were outsourced to China. However, in the same time frame, China lost about 4.5 million manufacturing jobs, compared with the loss of 3.1 million in the U.S. Job loss is the trend among the top 10 manufacturing countries (the U.S., Japan, Germany, China, Britain, France, Italy, South Korea, Canada and Mexico), which produce 75 percent of the worlds manufacturing output. Only Italy has managed not to lose factory jobs since 2000. Nonetheless, the U.S. remains a major force in global manufacturing. Because of automation, the U.S. worker is now three times as productive as in 1980 and twice as productive as in 2000. Its productivity gains, rather than outsourcing and imports, that explain most of our manufacturing job loss. Economist Joseph Schumpeter described the process of technological change. He called it creative destruction.Ž Technology and innovation destroy some jobs while creating many others. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. labor force in 1950 was 62 million. By 2000, it was 79 million, and its projected to reach 192 million by 2050. Though the creative destructionŽ process works hardships on some people who lose their jobs and are forced to take lowerpaying jobs, any attempt to impede the process would make all of us worse off. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University and a columnist with Creators Syndicate.Will automation kill our jobs?

CLASSIFIEDSThe News Herald | Sunday, February 25, 2018 F F 9 9 NF-1180157 Well my 2005 Nissan Sentra has a brand new battery, but the car will still not crank over. The cars interior lights come on and the radio plays and everything seems to work. When you turn the key to the crank position, it makes a click and then another click, but does not crank! The car does not even try to crank, so we have tried to jump the car, and when jumped, it barely cranks. Once the car is turned off and tried to be restarted the car tries to start, but it then does the clicking thingŽ Thanks for your time Paul Paul, It sounds as if you have a starter or electrical problem! (If the engine is mechanically sound) The click you are hearing tells me that the starter is getting voltage. How much voltage is the question? A voltage drop needs to be performed on the starting circuit. In order to do this, you need a digital multi meter (DMM). If you are losing more than .5 volt this could cause the same symptoms you are describing! If you want to do this test yourself it is not hard to test for a voltage drop. Here is the test procedure below. 1) Place your DMM on 20 volt scale. 2) Place one DMM lead on the positive post of the battery. 3) Place the other DMM lead on the positive post of the starter. 4) Try to crank your car. If it your DMM reads voltage over .5 volt then you need to clean ALL connections to and from the battery and starter, then retest. You need to test the negative side of the electrical system as well. It is the same process as I described above, you just put your DMM leads on the engine block (as close to the starter as you can) and the negative post of the battery. Crank your car and read your voltage drop on your DMM. Or if you suspect the starter is faulty, you could try to try cranking your car and have someone GENTLY tap on the starter with a SMALL hammer. (Dont BEAT on it or you will do irreparable damage) If it starts better, the starter is going to be more than likely faulty. Of course, I would still check for excessiveŽ voltage drop just to make sure that low voltage didnt burn up your starter. James, I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette that I had to remove the wiper motor and linkage to replace the alternator. When I put it back together the wipers dont work right. First, they hit as they were going up. I can adjust them to work some, but they wont go full range of motion and they dont park in the full down position. Did I do something wrong reinstalling them? Thanks for your help, J.R. Dear J.R. Without looking at it I can only guess that you did not install the linkage correctly when you put it back together. (I know this sounds too obvious!) So I may suggest that you nd another Silhouette and look at the linkage. I suspect you may have put things on backwardsŽ. It is an easy mistake to make. Please nd another van and look at how the linkage is installed before you do anything else. Now you understand why the shops have to charge so much to do this job! This is not a fun job on the 3.4 liter engines.
