He showed that time and time again,Ž Commissioner Mike Nichols said. I hope we do not move forward with Bob Sonnenblick on anything inside of Panama City.ŽWhat started as a jubilant announcement of a partnership with Sonnenblick in May 2016 and an excited nod of approval for his first designs in August 2016 had been showing signs of deterioration for the past year.

Frankie Sewell: At what age do your constitutional rights start?Ž Derick Sebring: If they do this then you shouldnt be allowed to move out on your own, join the military, vote or do any other adult activities until youre 21.Ž Crystal Grey-Hewett: You guys really should read for content. In almost every version of this kind of bill, they write in a military exemption.Ž Bobbie Cayce: Its just common sense to raise the age to 21. The human brain isnt fully developed until 21-25. Fathers can still buy ri” es for their sons to teach target practice and to eventually hunt together. I realize this is an old fashioned idea but, I am old.Ž Jason Smith: Im as conservative as they come and I have no issue with raising the buying Jessica Diliberto: This proposed bill just seems like a waste of time & non sense. First off I dont get raising the age limit, just look at areas like Chicago, they have some of the toughest gun. Laws on the U.S yet more gun violence than anywhere else. Do you think that 10 & 12 year gang Kids care about age restriction laws, they are not saying dang I need to wait until Im old enough to legally purchase a gun so I can go out and commit illegal acts. I dont see the point in any waiting period, (other than for a legit background check for felons that type of thing) a 3 day waiting period is not going to stop someone from committing a crime.

[CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] Today is Wednesday, Feb. 28 the 59th day of 2018. There are 306 days left in the year. The Jewish holiday Purim begins at sunset. Highlight in History: On Feb. 28, 1993 a gun battle erupted at a religious compound near Waco, Texas, when Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents tried to arrest Branch Davidian leader David Koresh on weapons charges; four agents and six Davidians were killed as a 51-day standoff began. On this date: In 1784 John Wesley, co-founder of Methodism, chartered the “ rst Methodist Church in the United States in Leesburg, Virginia. In 1844 a 12-inch gun aboard the USS Princeton exploded as the ship was sailing on the Potomac River, killing Secretary of State Abel P. Upshur, Navy Secretary Thomas W. Gilmer and several others. In 1861 the Territory of Colorado was organized. In 1917 the United States obtained a diplomatic communication sent by German Foreign Minister Arthur Zimmermann to a German of“ cial in Mexico proposing a German alliance with Mexico and Japan should the U.S. enter World War I. (Outrage over the telegram helped propel America into the con” ict.) In 1942 the heavy cruiser USS Houston and the Australian light cruiser HMAS Perth were attacked by Japanese forces during the World War II Battle of Sunda Strait; both were sunk shortly after midnight on March 1 with a total loss of more than 1,000 men. In 1953 scientists James D. Watson and Francis H.C. Crick announced they had discovered the double-helix structure of DNA. In 1958 a school bus clipped a truck near Prestonburg, Kentucky, and plunged down an embankment into the Big Sandy River; 22 children managed to escape, but 26 other children and the bus driver drowned.

He was shot dead while walking on a bridge near the Kremlin three years ago.The move to rename the street started in the U.S. Congress at the urging of Sen.

The move builds on the citys previous bans of plastic bags and Styrofoam, and is part of an overall strategy to eliminate all single-use plastic items in Malibu, which has 21 miles of picturesque coast and is known as a haven for celebrities.Its the right thing to do,Ž City Councilwoman Laura Rosenthal said Tuesday. If people could see all the plastics that we find on a daily basis, I think everyone would be sup-portive of this ban.ŽMOGADISHU, SOMALIAUS says two extremists killed in latest Somalia airstrikeThe U.S. military says it has killed two extremists and wounded another in an airstrike against al-Shabab fighters in Somalia.A statement from U.S. Africa Command on Tuesday said the airstrike was carried out Monday near Jilib in Middle Juba region.The U.S. has carried out a growing number of drone strikes in the Horn of Africa nation in coordination with Somalias government.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, February 28, 2018 A5agreement (ENA).It also fueled loud pushback from the public, creating the catalyst to start com-munity groups Save Our Panama City Marina and Panama City Growing Strong, both focused on the citys development.There was a lot of frustration,Ž Nichols said. A lot of people got angry over this issue and probably rightly so.ŽThe commission repeatedly told the public its concerns all would be addressed in the marina feasibility studies, which were meant to be third-party studies addressing the financial feasibility of each component of the project, in addition to answering questions about traffic, utilities, the viability of retail and more.Instead, Sonnenblick delivered a few pages of information that City Attorney Nevin Zim-merman said could have been given to the city nine months ago,Ž a bitter disappointment to officials who have been defending the importance of the studies for months.To say that I am dis-appointed would be a gross understatement about the contents the city received that mas-querades as a feasibility study,Ž Brudnicki said as part of a statement he read during the meet-ing. We allotted more than ample time for the developer to provide the city with feasibility studies and this process was crystal clear in the ENA.ŽReached by phone, Sonnenblick felt differently, maintaining that what he turned in was adequate under the ENA. The city, he said, had an unreasonable expectation.Do I look stupid? Why would someone pay for something when they could say no?Ž he said. They are just looking for someone to pay for their feasibility studies.ŽHe pointed to the citys negotiations with HomeFed-Leucadia „ the previous potential marina developer „ falling apart in July 2015, and accused the city of making the same mistake twice, saying no one in the worldŽ is going to work with the city under these terms.I think its an unbelievable missed opportunity. The project I put forth had tremen-dous potential,Ž he said. Maybe the commissioners want ƒ to keep Harrison a sleepy little street thats largely unsuccessful.ŽThe commission, however, already has started talking „ ten-tatively „ about how to move forward.Since the concept of the city redeveloping the marina was first pro-posed in 2014, the city has spent $565,547 on lawyers and consultants. Of that, $238,554 was spent since Sonnenblick came on board. None of that money went to the developer.But city officials said the money and time hasnt been wasted, as they now have a better understanding of what people want from the project, have gained national exposure and have a better idea of what costs might look like.Commissioners did not formally vote on how to move forward but did offer some thoughts. Commissioners Jenna Haligas, Billy Rader, Kenneth Brown and Nichols said the city doesnt need to worry about finding a developer tomorrowŽ as Nichols put it, but should focus on fixing up the marina.We are going to do what we need to do,Ž Brown said, noting he saw this coming.Interim City Manager Jared Jones, backed by Brudnicki, recommended the city work with consultant Owen Beitsch to do its own feasibility studies for about $75,000 to study the Marina Civic Center, hotel, restau-rants, marina and retail space.The decision to termi-nate the agreement was met with applause by the audience, and sev-eral speakers, including representatives from PC Growing Strong and Save Our Panama City Marina, voiced their support for the decision.working in mine warfare. I ran the mine warfare department for about 12 years and then Ive been the deputy technical director for the last five.ŽAs deputy technical director, Tubridy helps make decisions on investments and how to spend money, moving personnel around and applying engineering judgment so NSWC PCD, a tenant unit at Naval Support Activity Panama City, is running on all cylindersŽ and making the right decisions.ŽTubridy also assists NSWC PCD Technical Director Edwin Stewart. As for mine warfare, on which hes focused much of his career, Tubridy said it is importantŽ to the Navys mission. During his career mine warfare has transitioned to using unmanned, autonomous systems, a difference from the initial strategy of sending people into a mine field to clear the area.You dont want to put men and women at risk,Ž Tubridy said.Tubridy plans to retire at the end of March but will stay in the area since he likes Bay County. Tubridy is from Cocoa Beach in central Florida and moved here in 1982 right out of college.Ž He said theres no greater cause than defending the nation.I thought this would be a great place to work for five years,Ž Tubridy said. And its been 36. ...

** A6 Wednesday, February 28, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Michael KunzelmanThe Associated PressThe Anti-Defamation League is reporting a 57 percent increase in antiSemitic incidents in the U.S. last year, the highest tally that the Jewish civil rights group has counted in more than two decades, according to data it released Tuesday.The New York City-based organization found 1,986 anti-Semitic incidents last year, up from 1,267 in 2016. Thats the highest total since 1994 and the largest singleyear increase since the group began collecting this data in 1979.The ADL said the sharp rise includes 952 vandal-ism incidents, an increase of 86 percent from 2016. The group also counted 1,015 incidents of harass-ment, a 41 percent increase from 2016.ADL national director and CEO Jonathan Green-blatt said the alarmingŽ increase appears to be fueled by emboldened far-right extremists as well as the divisive state of our national discourse.ŽLess civility has led to more intolerance,Ž he told The Associated Press.Greenblatt also acknowledged that heightened awareness of the problem likely led to increased reporting of anti-Semitic incidents.Anti-Semitic incidents at schools and on college campuses nearly doubled for the second year in a row, with 457 such incidents reported in non-Jewish schools last year, the ADL report says.We should see this as an alarm, a very loud alarm that should get the attention of all of us,Ž Greenblatt said.The ADL and other groups have reported a surge in the number of incidents in which farright extremist groups have posted racist and anti-Semitic fliers on college campuses. ADL spokesman Todd Gutnick said the reports tally only counts incidents in which fliers had explicitly anti-Semitic messages.The ADL also counted 19 anti-Semitic physical assaults last year, a 47 per-cent decrease from 2016.The harassment inci-dents included 169 bomb threats against Jewish institutions, nearly all of them by two men. The ADL report said more than 150 bomb threats against Jewish community centers and day schools last year were allegedly made by an 18-year-old Israeli-American Jewish hacker, who was arrested in Israel last March. Sepa-rately, a former journalist from St. Louis pleaded guilty to making a string of fake bomb threats to Jewish organizations last year in the name of his ex-girlfriend in an effort to disrupt her life.In a note about its methodology, the group said, ADL is careful to not conflate general criticism of Israel or anti-Israel activism with anti-Semitism. However, Israel-related harassment of groups or individuals may be included when the harassment incorporates traditional anti-Jewish references, accusations and conspiracy theories. Also included are cases of picketing of Jewish religious or cultural insti-tutions for purported support for Israel.ŽThere were six incidents in which Jewish institutions were victims of vandalism and harass-ment for their purported support of Israel, Gutnick said.Report: Anti-Semitic incidents soar by 57 percent in 2017Headstones toppled and damaged by vandals lie on the ground Feb. 27, 2017, at Mount Carmel Cemetery in Philadelphia. [ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Lisa Mascaro and Matthew DalyThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ After a 10-day break, members of Congress are returning to work under hefty pressure to respond to the outcry over gun violence. But no plan appears ready to take off despite a long list of proposals, including many from President Donald Trump.Republican leaders have kept quiet for days as Trump tossed out ideas, including raising the minimum age to purchase assault-style weapons and arming teachers, though on Saturday the president tweeted that the latter was Up to states.ŽTheir silence has left little indication whether they are ready to rally their ranks behind any one of the presidents ideas, dust off another proposal or do nothing. The most likely legisla-tive option is bolstering the federal background check system for gun purchases, but its bogged down after being linked with a less popu-lar measure to expand gun rights.The halting start reflects firm GOP opposition to any bill that would curb access to guns and risk antag-onizing gun advocates in their party. Before the Feb. 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people, Repub-licans had no intention of reviving the polariz-ing and politically risky gun debate during an already difficult election year that could endanger their con-gressional majority.Theres no magic bill thats going to stop the next thing from happening when so many laws are already on the books that werent being enforced, that were broken,Ž said Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the third-rank-ing House GOP leader, when asked about solutions. The break-downs that happen, this is what drives people nuts,Ž said Scalise, who suffered life-threatening injuries when a gunman opened fire on lawmakers baseball team practice last year. Trump has set high expectations for action.I think were going to have a great bill put for-ward very soon having to do with background checks, having to do with getting rid of cer-tain things and keeping other things, and per-haps well do something on age,Ž Trump said in a Fox News Channel interview Saturday night. He added: We are drawing up strong legislation right now having to do with back-ground checks, mental illness. I think you will have tremendous support. Its time. Its time.ŽCongress returns amid pressure to act on gun violence

** A8 Wednesday, February 28, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Frank Jordans and David RisingThe Associated PressBERLIN „ Handing environmentalists a land-mark victory, a German court ruled Tuesday that cities can ban diesel cars and trucks to combat air pollution, a decision with far-reaching and costly implications in the coun-try where the diesel engine was invented in the 1890s.The ruling by the Fed-eral Administrative Court stirred fears from motor-ists, auto dealers and other businesses worried about the financial impact. And Chancellor Angela Merkels government scrambled to reassure drivers it would seek to prevent such drastic mea-sures by pushing other ways to reduce urban pollution.Diesel automobiles are a popular alternative to gasoline-powered ones in Germany, with about 9 million diesel cars and several million trucks, buses and other vehicles affected by the ruling.Overall, 1 in 3 passenger cars in Germany, home to such automakers as Daimler, Volkswagen and BMW, are dieselpowered, though the cleanest, most modern models would probably still be allowed even if cities decided on a ban.Its a great day for clean air in Germany,Ž said Juergen Resch, head of the group Environmental Action Germany, which had sued dozens of German cities for failing to meet legally binding emis-sions limits.While diesel cars produce less carbon diox-ide and tend to get better mileage than gas-powered vehicles, they emit higher levels of nitrogen oxides, or NOx, contributing to respiratory illnesses and 6,000 deaths annually, according to government figures.Two German states had appealed lower court decisions that suggested bans on particularly dirty diesel cars would be effective. Germanys highest administrative court rejected that appeal Tuesday, effectively instructing two cities at the center of the case „ Stuttgart and Duesseldorf „ to consider bans as part of their clean air plans.What comes next is an open question.Its not clear whether cities will actually move to ban diesels. And if they do so, it remains to be seen whether automakers will be forced to upgrade exhaust and software systems or buy back vehicles; if the government will offer consumers incentives; or if owners will be left on their own, forced to bear the costs.The Leipzig-based administrative court said cities wont be required to compensate drivers for being unable to use their diesel cars.Speaking on behalf of automakers, Matthias Wissmann, president of the German Association of the Automotive Industry, stressed that the government could ease the uncertainty by not leaving it to cities to decide on a case-by-case basis.We hope it comes to sensible national regula-tions,Ž he said.Cheers, protests as German court lets cities ban diesel carsAn environment activist stands in front of the Federal Administrative Court prior to a trial Tuesday in Leipzig, Germany.

It follows years of negotiations between Boeing and the U.S. Air Force „ and Trumps per-sonal intervention since his election.In December 2016, Trump tweeted that costs for the program were out of control, more than $4 billion,Ž he added. Cancel order!Ž The Associated PressBy Dee-Ann DurbinThe Associated PressDETROIT „ Ford Motor Co. is making Miami-Dade County its new test bed for self-driving vehicles.The automaker and its partners „ Dominos Pizza, ride-hailing company Lyft and delivery company Postmates „ are starting pilot programs to see how consumers react to autonomous and semi-auton-omous vehicles. Self-driving startup and Ford partner Argo AI already has a fleet of cars in the area making the highly detailed maps that are necessary for self-driving. Ford also will establish its first-ever autonomous vehicle terminal in Miami, where it will learn how to service and deploy its test fleet.Its all part of Fords effort to find viable business models for fully autonomous vehicles and get them on the road by 2021.This is, I think, the future of any automotive company or mobility company. If a major-ity of the worlds population is going to be living in cities, we need to understand how to move those people around,Ž said John Kwant, Fords vice president of city solutions, who inked the deal with Miami-Dade.Ford isnt the first automaker to run test fleets of autonomous vehicles. General Motors Co. will start testing autonomous vehicles in New York City this year, while Nissan Motor Co. is launching an autonomous taxi service in Yokohama, Japan, next week. Technology companies like Waymo, a division of Google, also are testing self-driving vehicles on public roads in Phoenix, San Francisco and Singapore, among other cities.But the partnership with a specific metropolitan is less common. Both sides envision a deep relationship where Ford can help Miami-Dade solve specific issues, like how to most efficiently move people from its suburbs to its downtown monorail, and Miami-Dade can offer solutions like dedicated lanes for automated vehicles or infrastructure projects like advanced traffic lights that can send signals to connected cars.We want to be on the fore-front of this because we want to give our people choices,Ž said Carlos Gimenez, the mayor of Miami-Dade County, which is home to 34 cities and 2.7 million people.Sherif Marakby, Fords vice president of autonomous vehicles and electrification, said the company also intends to work closely with local businesses. The company wants to learn, for example, how a florist might use an autonomous delivery vehicle.Autonomous vehicle technology is interesting, but its a whole lot more interesting with a viable business model,Ž he said.The city of Miami is the fifth-most congested in the U.S., according to a recent traffic study by the consult-ing firm Inrix. After more than a century of selling people vehicles, Kwant says Ford now wants to figure out ways to move people more efficiently in order to cut down on that time in traffic.Sam Abuelsamid, a senior research analyst with the consulting firm Navigant Research, says Ford and others must figure out how to make money on self-driving cars.If this does take off, if people do adopt automated vehicles and use them for ride-hailing, thats going to result in a decline in retail vehicle sales,Ž Abuelsamid said. They need to figure out, if were going to have a decline in the number of vehicles we sell to consumers, how do we keep our business stable?ŽKwant says the testing will also help Ford determine what its future self-driving vehicles need to look like and how they must perform.If you dont have steering wheels, how do you begin to use that package space? How do you begin to look differ-ent in terms of carrying more people?Ž he said.Ford wont say how many vehicles it will have on the road in Miami-Dade, but says it will be Fords largest test bed for autonomous vehicles by the end of this year.All of the vehicles will have backup safety drivers.

And on the flip side, personal savings as a portion of disposable income now is at its lowest level in 12 years. Some of this is certainly understandable. People feel they can breatheŽ again in terms of personal spending and borrowing. The economy is improving, unemployment is down, and folks feel comfortable with their financial circumstances. Traditionally, Americans also feel more inclined to borrow when markets are on an uptick, as they were in 2017. People look at their balance sheet and see their assets climbing in value and say, Hey, Im worth more now. I can afford to borrow more, spend more and save less.Ž The net worth of American households rose by $41 trillion in the third quarter of 2017 alone. This wealth effectŽ affects consumer behavior. In late 2017, repayment schedules on new car loans reveal a fascinating story. Americans purchasing new autos signed on for an average repayment period of 69 months, or just under six years. The Wall Street Journal notes that in the fourth quarter (of 2017), consumer debt, excluding mortgages and other home loans, rose 5.5 percent from a year earlier to $3.82 trillion.Ž Thats the largest increase since 1999, the first year that statistic was recorded. Meanwhile, Americans are saving less money than at any time since the end of 2007. Savings rates also remained low during the housing boom in the two previous years, 2005 and 2006. Many Americans borrowed heavily as interest rates remained relatively low these last few years. We purchased homes, plowed money into business opportunities, and increased our discretionary spending. But volatility in markets, dormant for almost 18 months, reared its head again in February. In addition, the Federal Reserve seems committed to raising interest rates. This combination, intertwined with other global forces, could portend an economic slowdown. When a downturn occurs, and everyone retrenches simultaneously, that sixyear car loan might not feel so comfortable. Its certainly advisable to invest in valuable opportunities and fun to spend freely during healthy economic years, but its equally important to save money to see us through periods of economic slowdowns. Consuming and saving simultaneously might seem like an oxymoron, but truthfully, the two activities are not mutually exclusive. Spending and borrowing is fine, but its equally important to prepare for periods when economic expansion is not occurring. Folks eschewed personal savings while enjoying rising asset values twice in the last 20 years: just before the dot. com bubble in the late 90s and again before the Great Recession nine years ago.

In the 50s and 60s we carried our ri” es and shotguns to school (Bay High) in gun racks in our pickup trucks with no problems of shootings or violence. What has changed in our society? Liberalism?SQUALL LINE ANOTHER VIEW Tim Thompson | Publisher Will Glover | Managing Editor Mike Cazalas | Editor PANAMA CITY VIEWPOINTSGov. Rick Scott made the right decision to order a Florida Department of Law Enforcement inquiry into how authorities handled Nikolas Cruz, the suspect in the Valentines Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Several unsettling issues about that have arisen within the past few days, particularly the actions of the Broward County Sheriffs Office. Those developments have called into question the leadership of Sheriff Scott Israel „ who, like countless others reeling from the emotional toll of this latest slaughter, has scolded the National Rifle Association, and by extension its supporters and millions of law-abiding members, and called for stricter gun control measures. As Gov. Scott seems to sense, before we blindly follow the myopic path of the growing and increasingly voluble chorus demanding policies that would curtail Floridians constitutional rights, we must have answers as to what, if anything, could have prevented the killings as they were happening or earlier. Take just a sample of what has been revealed, either by the media, the Sheriffs Office itself, or a letter sent to Scott on Sunday from House Speaker Richard Corcoran „ and signed by 73 other GOP lawmakers„ that called for Israels suspension. We know Broward deputies received at least 23 calls about Cruz or his family, going back to at least Israels first week on the job in 2013. At least two of those, in February 2016 and November 2017, indicated Cruz was planning to shoot up the school and referred to social media posts of him brandishing weapons. The FBI similarly received at least two tips, including one Jan. 5 from a woman who was a family friend and who said Cruz was into ISISŽ and predicted he was going to explode.Ž We must know why nothing was done, as Corcorans letter asserts, to prevent this shooting. Then, we learned that the first deputy at the scene, Scot Peterson, the school resource officer, failed to enter the building for at least four minutes while Cruz blasted away. He subsequently resigned. On Monday, according to news reports, Petersons lawyer maintained he followed protocols and failed to enter the school because he believed the shots were coming from outside of it. But officers from the nearby Coral Springs Police Department, which also responded to the shooting, have told the media that possibly three other armed deputies declined to enter the building. We must know how this accusation came about and who is telling the truth. We also have discovered that the Sheriffs Office active shooterŽ policy grants deputies discretion in those situations to enter a building and engage the culprit. That policy appeared to be revised by Sheriff Israel or his staff in March 2016, but its unclear if that specific language was the subject of the change. Questioned about the policy, one of Israels senior leaders acknowledged the choice to engage Cruz was Petersons, and that he should have elected to go into the school. We must have better clarification about the rules of engagement and the communications between Peterson and any other deputies at the scene and their supervisors. Israel has said he welcomes the FDLE probe and will cooperate fully with it. Good. He has cast blame in so many different directions,the survivors, their families, the community and the people of Florida deserve a full accounting from investigators. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Ledger, a News Herald sister paper with Gatehouse MediaGive us the full storyUnion falters when open discussion is strangled Well, the right-wing conspiracy is at it again. Once more they have sent one of their deranged, young radicals into a public school to spread their agenda. Its no secret to anyone that these traitors have always despised the notion of publicly funded education for all citizens, and they have long resented having their children brainwashedŽ into understanding the scientific method, of being able to read and comprehend the written language themselves, and most importantly allowing those children to go to school with their precious angels. It is only thanks to the resilience of a free people that it has taken them this long to bring it down. Sowing the seeds of institutional disfunction didnt work. Starving the school system certainly hurt but didnt stop the resilience of the spirit of illumination. Even with the ability to control the hiring culture, the light of knowledge, first rediscovered some 700 years ago, burns here in the U.S. But now it seems, after years of violence, of degenerative social manipulation, they may be at a watershed moment. For those who wont be able to flee what will remain of the public school system will be nothing more than a training camp for an institutionalized life (military or prison, probably both). Ugly thing to say, isnt it? I would say, by and large, its an exaggeration. But how much is true? How much are alternative factsŽ? Its frustrating when other people put words in your mouth, or ascribe intentions that are not yours. Its insulting when they call into question your sincerity or your underlying loyalties. It is impossible to have a Union when all public discourse is reduced to propaganda and accusations of conspiratorial intent. Just be honest „with yourself if no one else. The only moral high ground is an island of wet tissue paper, and the only way to solve that is to quit playing in the toilet.Oak Bryan, Panama City Trying to point out the mistakes, transgressions and failures of the Trump administration is like trying to load frogs into a wheelbarrow. For every one you get, a dozen get away. The latest example comes courtesy of Scott Pruitt, head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt has gotten some attention for his efforts to roll back measures aimed at curbing carbon emissions and slowing climate change. There have been stories about his obsession with secrecy, which led to the installation of a $25,000 soundproof booth in his office. But nothing has gotten more criticism than his habit of flying first class despite the burden on taxpayers. The reaction probably comes as a surprise to Pruitt, who may wonder why burning through $1,641 for a flight from Washington to New York evokes universal horror when slowroasting the planet doesnt. Even his complacency about global warming, though, has gotten more attention than his subversion of the central mission of the EPA: protecting human health and conserving the natural environment by attacking air and water pollution. When Republican President Richard Nixon established the EPA in 1970, he recognized this concern as one transcending party and ideology. We can no longer afford to consider air and water common property, free to be abused by anyone without regard to the consequences,Ž he said. Instead, we should begin now to treat them as scarce resources, which we are no more free to contaminate than we are free to throw garbage into our neighbors yard.Ž Lets leave aside for the time being the matter of rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the unwelcome effects they could have. Judged solely by what he has done with regard to old-fashioned pollution, putting Pruitt in charge of the EPA is the equivalent of letting Nick Saban call the plays for Auburn. Under Pruitt, the agencys funds would be cut by $2.5 billion, or 23 percent „ a contrast from the roughly $300 billion in new spending in other areas that Congress and the president recently approved. Given the president is content to allow the budget deficit to rise to $1 trillion, its hard to argue the federal government cant afford to adequately fund the EPA. Pruitt and Trump just dont want to. Their goal is to weaken and constrain the agency. Pruitts agenda goes beyond merely making it hard for his people to do ordinary enforcement of the laws. He also wants to take away the authority that lets them identify and ameliorate environmental harms. Pruitt wants to repeal the Clean Power Plan „ an Obama administration program that would improve air quality enough to save an estimated 3,000 lives each year. He wants to abandon the previous interpretation of the Clean Water Act, allowing more toxic waste in streams and wetlands. He is expected to try to roll back standards for ozone, a component of smog, which aggravates asthma and damages lungs. Nothing else Pruitt is doing compares to the malignant effects of his permissiveness about pollution. Many Americans may not worry about climate change or preserving wild areas. But they should care about the consequences of dirtier air and water, as summarized by Christine Todd Whitman, head of the EPA under George W. Bush: People will get sick and die.Ž You could be one of them.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, February 28, 2018 A13By Marilynn MarchioneThe Associated PressNew research calls into question whats in those IV bags that nearly every hospitalized patient gets. Using a different intravenous fluid instead of the usual saline greatly reduced the risk of death or kidney damage, two large studies found.The difference could mean 50,000 to 70,000 fewer deaths and 100,000 fewer cases of kidney fail-ure each year in the U.S., researchers estimate. Some doctors are hoping the results will persuade more hospitals to switch.Weve been sounding the alarm for 20 yearsŽ about possible harms from saline, said Dr. John Kellum, a critical care specialist at the University of Pittsburgh. Its purely inertiaŽ that prevents a change, he said.Kellum had no role in the studies, which were discussed Tuesday at a critical care conference in San Antonio and published by the New England Journal of Medicine. Federal grants helped pay for the work. IVs are one of the most common things in health care. They are used to prevent dehydration, maintain blood pressure or give patients medi-cines or nutrients if they cant eat.Saline „ salt dissolved in water „ has been the most widely used fluid in the U.S. for more than a century even as evidence has emerged that it can harm kidneys, especially when used a lot.Other IV solutions called balanced fluids include saline but also contain potassium and other things that make them more like plasma, the clear part of blood. Theyre widely used in Europe and Australia.The studies involved 28,000 patients at Vanderbilt University who were given IVs of saline or a balanced fluid. For every 100 people on balanced fluids, there was one fewer death or severe kidney problem.Since there are about 30 million people hospitalized in the U.S. alone each year, there are tens or hundreds of thousands of patients who would be spared death or severe kidney problems by using balanced fluids instead of saline,Ž said one study leader, Vanderbilts Dr. Matthew Semler.After seeing the results two months ago, Vander-bilt hospital officials decided to primarily use balanced fluids. The Uni-versity of Pittsburgh also has largely switched to them, Kellum said.The fluids cost about the same „ a dollar or two per IV „ and many suppliers make both types, so switching should not be hard or expensive, doctors said.IV fluids have been in the news since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico last fall, shutting down electricity to three plants owned by Baxter International, one of the biggest makers of these fluids.

Ford said Reyes was immediately terminated after BCSO learned of his actions, and criminal charges were brought against him in a timely manner. He accepted the verdict, though.I understand the jurys decision in that the women were in our care and custody,Ž Ford wrote. This will never be tolerated at the Bay County Jail, and strict procedures are in place to prevent it from occurring again.ŽFord expressed disap-pointment that Reyes actions violated the trust instilled in the rest of the men and women of the Bay County Jail. The $500,000 to be paid to the two victims comes from BCSOs insurance policy with the Florida Sheriffs Risk Management Fund.The verdict brings a close to one of two simi-lar lawsuits. A complaint against BCSO filed in February 2017 by former inmate Tammy Melton still is pending in the 14th Judicial Circuit Court.Both of the lawsuits lay out similar allegations. Each woman was arrested between April 2013 and July 2013 and housed in the Bay County Jail, where Reyes worked as a detention officer.The women all were assigned to work in the laundry area of the jail, which was under video surveillance and monitored by jail staff. Despite not being assigned to oversee laundry operations, Reyes began visiting in August 2013 and commanding the female inmates to accompany him to a supply closet, court records state.While escorting the women, Reyes had to go through several locked and secured doors mon-itored by jail staff and video cameras. The rou-tine became so frequent that staff began referring to the chosen inmates as Reyes girls,Ž according to the lawsuit.In the supply closet, Reyes would force the women into non-consensual sexual acts. Some of the women reported suffering mental and emotional harm as a result, while one woman reported Reyes gave her a sexu-ally transmitted disease.Reyes was arrested in November 2013 in the case and pleaded no con-test in January 2015 to a charge of sexual miscon-duct between detention staff and inmates. He was sentenced to five years of probation.The charges against Reyes were momentarily upgraded by the State Attorneys Office (SAO) to sexual battery in the course of the case. An SAO investigative report indicated at least one victim felt forced to have sex with Reyes because he was in a position of authority over her. How-ever, the allegations fell short of claiming Reyes used physical force in the act and eventually were reverted to the original charges.A federal trial in the case began Friday. On Monday night, the jurors found for the plaintiffs. INMATESContinued from A1

** The News Herald | Wednesday, February 28, 2018 B3By John Kennedyjkennedy @gatehousemedia.comTALLAHASSEE„ After days of gun control demonstrations drew thousands of shout-ing, chanting protesters to the Florida Capitol, parents and neighbors of students and teachers slain in Parkland tearfully made their case Tuesday before a state House committee.The Appropriations Committee had already defeated the prime demand from many critics„ a ban on assault-style weapons„ when Max Schachter went to the microphone and pleaded with lawmakers to make schools safe.Schachters 14-yearold son, Alex, was among the 17 people killed on Valentines Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by a gunman firing an AR-15 military-style weapon.The FBI, the Broward Sheriffs Office, the school resource offi-cers, you legislators, you all failed me and my little boy,Ž Schachter said, through tears.The raw emotions from the shooting two weeks ago were still evi-dent in the testimony of many who spoke before a House panel voted 23-6 to approve a package of gun limits, school safety measures and mental health care changes, similar to one also advancing in the Senate.Gov. Rick Scott also backs most of the approaches, with a final vote possible in the Leg-islature by as early as Friday.The bills increase the age for buying a gun to 21 and require a three-day waiting period for all gun purchases, a provision which currently only applies to handgun buys. The proposal bans the sale of bump stocks, attachments that enable a semi-automatic rifle to fire faster, and the House would make possession of a bump stock a felony beginning Oct. 1. The House and Senate also are trying to settle differences over procedures for expanding the states Baker Act to allow law enforcement to remove weapons for at least 72 hours from someone considered mentally unstable.But the effort by both sides to establish a school marshal program,Ž allowing specially trained teach-ers to volunteer to carry weapons has emerged as a flash point between the Legislatures ruling Republicans and Demo-crats, joined by teachers union allies.Linda Beigel-Schulman, whose son, Scott, a geography teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, was killed trying to protect students, said having instructors carrying weapons in class is wrong.My Scott became a teacher to teach,Ž she told the House committee. He did not to become a law enforce-ment officer.ŽBut House Rules Chair Jose Oliva, R-Miami, a lead negotiator with the Senate on the Legislatures response to Parkland, said that while county Sheriffs Offices would be required to establish marshal pro-grams, it would be up to school superintendents and teachers to choose to participate.Its the final line of defense, when every-thing else we should have put in place as a society has failed, as it did in this case,Ž Oliva said. Those coaches, those teachers who threw themselves in the line of fire, if they could have had a way to defend themselves and the students, I think they wouldve wanted that.ŽAlthough Oliva insisted that arming teachers was not a stopgapŽ effort, he acknowledged that its going to take a long time to train and deploy the build-up of school resource officers sought by Scott and Republican leaders.Lawmakers again reject ban on assault-style weaponsTALLAHASSEESenate pitches health care alternative for vetsA state Senate proposal would authorize Florida to begin negotiations with the federal government to see if the state could offer managed health-care programs to veterans and their families as an alterna-tive to the health system provided by the federal Veterans Administration. The Senate could vote on the proposal (SB 440) as soon as today.Sponsor Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, agreed Tues-day to add an amendment to make clear the proposal is not designed to expand Medicaid for veterans in Florida. Instead, he said the proposal would authorize discussions with the federal govern-ment to discuss opening access to the Medicaid managed-care infra-structure of health plans and physicians.The bill would autho-rize the state Department of Veterans Affairs, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Department of Children and Families to jointly negotiate with federal agencies to seek approval for a waiver, a state-plan amendment, or other approval for federal funding for the Florida Veterans CareŽ program.The federal Veterans Administration system serves more than 1.5 mil-lion Floridians, which is the third highest population of veterans in the country. More than half of the states veterans are age 65 and older, accord-ing to a staff analysis of the bill. Garcia made a plea to members of the Florida House of Representatives and House Speaker Richard Corcoran to not stand in the wayŽ of negotiations.Our veterans deserve better,Ž Garcia said. Enough with using our veterans as political pawns. The time is now to ensure that we take care of our veterans.ŽHouse committees have not heard the House version of the bill (HB 403).LYNN HAVENPCB man arrested on charges after wreckA Panama City Beach man was arrested Monday after running a red light, crash-ing into another vehicle and fleeing the scene, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.According to FHP, James Coburn, 31, was driving his Toyota Tacoma pickup truck northbound at the intersection of U.S. 231 and County 389 about noon Monday when he ran a red light and struck a Honda Pilot SUV driven by Roy Bell of San Diego, Califor-nia. Bell and his passenger, Sandra Lamping of Roeslle, Illinois, received minor injuries in the crash.After the wreck, Coburn fled and was followed by witnesses into the nearby Hammocks neighborhood, where he stopped the vehicle in the street and attempted to push it into a driveway. Unable to do so, he grabbed a case of beer out of the truck and left on foot, walking toward Mosley High School, officials reported. There, deputies made contact with Coburn and determined he had been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.Coburn was charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, failure to obey a traffic control device and failure to render aid.PANAMA CITYHannah Avenue to close temporarily at U.S. 98Access to Hannah Avenue north of the U.S. 98 intersection in Bay County will close beginning Thursday for pipe-laying operations associated with the 23rd Street flyover project.The closure will last about eight to 10 weeks, with drivers instead using Brown Avenue via 19th Street to access Hannah Avenue.

The shop has many certifications, including Scuba Schools International, National Association of Under-water Instructors (NAUI) and more. The owners plan to primarily teach under NAUI, though they do have the ability to offer other certifica-tions, Jason Barrow said.Combined, the staff has more than 100 years of experience, and oper-ates like a family.We have the friend-liest staff on the beach,Ž Jason Barrow said. While the crew shared a few laughs recently, Ashley Barrow pulled out pictures of her family participating in swimming and boating activities. She said water activities have been a huge part of her family.In fact, Ashley and Jason Barrow met while working at Island Time Sailing Cruises. She was working as a cruise director and he was the captain.I saw what an incredible father he was to his little girl (Sydney), and he had her at work,Ž Ashley Barrow said. She knew how to snorkel and swim.ŽThe couple have raised their daughters Sydney, 15, and Savannah, 5, around the water, and they spend a lot of time at the shop with the crew.Theyre both snorkel masters,Ž she said.Diving is more than a sport to the Barrows.Diving is a lifestyle,Ž Jason Barrow said. Your vacations revolve around it.ŽThe shop and some of its activities also were somewhat of a lifestyle for Gomez. He said he will miss the personal interactions he had with customers and some who later became his friends.McLendon shared his sentiment.Im a real people person, and I really enjoyed friendships with the groups,Ž he said. Im not going to give it up completely.

Seabrooks made his tank shooter game four-player „ though the logistics of four players on the same keyboard is a little confusing „ and Jessie Burton altered the controls to make move-ment more fluid. More than learning the hard skills of video game design, Davis said his class helps his students, who generally tend to be middle-of-the-pack per-formers, find something they can excel at and find reward in.A lot of times, nobody pats them on the back,Ž Davis said. Theyre not the most gifted kids in the school, but they are gifted in a completely different way than other kids are.ŽSeabrooks, a softspoken young man most of the time, absolutely flourishes when talking about scripts and game engines. He will go into every minute detail about the fan Pokemon game hes coding, which looks exactly like the original Nintendo version with some modifications, and how he wants to have his own YouTube channel to show off his creations.When you create the game yourself, you feel so proud of it,Ž he said.And Burton, who wants to be a mechanic by trade, said he feels more confident in his abilities after learning how to program and alter games. Plus, he alwayscan pick up and create video games on the side.Many other students, when faced with the difficulties that come along with coding and programing, give up and move on, but Davis said his students not only puzzle it out, giving them valuable real-world skills and grit, but usually turn right around and help their fellow classmates.We teach programming and game design, but what were really teaching is problem-solving,Ž Davis said. GAMESFrom Page B1NH: How many people work in the police department? How big is the force? Roberts: We have 19 full-time sworn (officers). That includes me, all our patrol officers, our crime scene investigators. We have five civilian staff and a handful of reserve officers.NH: How would you describe your 20 years here? Roberts: Its been a fun ride. Ive never had a bad day at work. Ive learned a lot. I remember when I first decided to come to Springfield, I was advised to go find this one little old lady. I was told she made a fresh apple pie daily. I found her and talked to her. I guess you could say we were doing community policing before community policing was ever really a thing.NH: Have there been any major changes from assistant chief to now, or is it a smooth transition? Roberts: Its been a smooth transition. It appears that the staff all supports me. I dont have any conflict with any of the staff. We have a great staff. I cant say enough about the staff. Theyre excellent to work with.NH: What attracted you to law enforcement as a career? Roberts: I was probably about 15 years old when a neighbor I was friends with, on Friday night he had to get cleaned up to go to his junior deputy meeting.

ROBERTSFrom Page B1South Florida, how any person could think that it is OK to make that kind of threat, I dont know.If they want atten-tion, theyre going to get it,Ž he continued.Mowat Middle School student Raven Ward, 14, was charged Tuesday with making a false report concerning plant-ing a bomb after she reportedly was heard making comments about blowing up the school. BCSO reported Ward had spent the morning in in-school suspension when she said she would look up how to blow up the school and kill the in-school suspension teacher first.ŽAt North Bay Haven, Jackson Savell, also 14, was charged with making a false report concerning use of a firearm in a violent manner when he reportedly commented to a group of students that he was going to come shoot the school up.Ž That comment was reported to a parent, who contacted the school administration and school resource deputy, and Savell was arrested.Bay District isnt the only school district seeing an uptick in these types of threats and arrests. A 12-year-old Wewahitchka Elemen-tary School student was arrested last week and charged with threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction „ a first-degree felony „ when he allegedly said he would blow upŽ the school. And a 12-year-old Crest-view online student was arrested last week for sending threats to kill or injure after he allegedly sent a student in Hills-borough County photos of guns and ammunition and asked, So you want to die?ŽWhen interviewed by law enforcement, many of the students have claimed they were just joking, but Ford said he cant afford not to treat every threat like its seri-ous. With the number of tips called in about Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz that were not investigated, Ford said his department doesnt have a choice, adding that right now, arrest is their best tool to stop the threat and determine its validity.We dont have a choice,Ž he said. We dont know which one of them could be the next school shooter.ŽThat near-constant threat that any one of these students could pos-sibly carry out an attack has started to take its toll on Fords team. They investigate every threat like its a murder,Ž he said, with three or four investigators on board interviewing witnesses and the student and searching their home for firearms or the means to carry out an attack. School officials are on edge, he said, and the sheriffs office has been running at a very high operational paceŽ since the first arrest on Feb. 20 of a Rosenwald stu-dent. They dont want to be the ones who brushed off a threat as a joke, only to have the student come back and carry out an attack.How do we differen-tiate between one that was just getting atten-tion and one that has the capability of following it out?Ž Ford asked. We cant be wrong one single time.ŽThe students arrested face serious charges „ firstand seconddegree felonies „ as well as likely expulsions from school and having their names out in the media, which can negatively affect their lives. Husfelt said the district offers counseling and referrals to social services the students who have been arrested, but ulti-mately, the safety of all the other students in the school comes first.All of our concerns about keeping our stu-dents safe trumps all our worries about the one student,Ž he said.

Ponte Vedra packs a bit more offensive punch than the Crusaders, averaging 51.8 points per game compared to 44.4, but is not quite as stingy defensively in allowing 40.4 points per contest compared to 34.8 for Bishop Kenny.

Entering the bottom of the ninth he had allowed only two hits, both to Rutherford graduate Ryan Leno, while cruising through eight innings.Parker Stephens opened Dothans ninth with a double, however, and Mitch McLendon reached on Gulf Coasts only error to put runners on the corners with nobody out.Although McLendon also advanced into scoring position, Kilcrease retired Nick Lewis and Oraj Anu and made Tanner Frabott his 12th s trikeout victim to end the game.The Commodores had 10 hits against the Gover-nors, 9-6. Jared Shemper went six innings and took the loss. Mosley graduate Nicky Agosto finished and pitched out of a bases loaded, one-out situation in the seventh.Gulf Coast did push across two unearned runs against Agosto in the top of the ninth.Jacquez Koonce had three hits and Brett Wisely two for the Commodores. Jeff Omohundro knocked in two runs as Gulf Coast took a 2-0 lead in the second and Cory Heffron added an RBI.

[SCOTT WHEELER/THE LEDGER] the fourth quarter.Quinn was given the unenviable task of defending Niblack, with the 6-foot-1 West Virginia signee proving too difficult to contain on the interior, hitting 9 of her 16 shots from the field and converting 10 of 13 at the free throw line."Once she got down there and got that ball, I knew from watching film that she was going to be hard to stop," Port St. Joe coach Kenny Parker said of Niblack. "She can shoot it and she can dribble, but she likes to stay around the paint and she got us in some foul trouble. When Brooklynn fouled out, that hurt us bad."It was a 47-43 Wildwood lead when Niblack made a basket plus the fifth foul on Quinn, con-verting the three-point play to put the Wildcats up by seven with 2:27 remaining in the game. The Tiger Sharks got it back down to five at 50-45 on a basket by Hutchinson moments later, but Port St. Joe was held scoreless for the final two minutes of play. Port St. Joe was 0 of 5 from the field during that span, including 0 of 4 from the 3-point line. The Tiger Sharks had three chances to cut the deficit to two points with a three, but missed each time."We had chances, but we didnt capital-ize," Parker said. "Thats what got us. We missed a layup, missed a couple of threes. I feel like if we score just one of those baskets when it was a five-point difference (it couldve been a different result)."The Tiger Sharks had the edge in the early going, taking a 19-12 lead after one quarter and building a 10-point margin on a 3-pointer by Hutchinson early in the second quarter. Wild-wood outscored PSJ 14-0 for the remainder of the first half, however, with Niblack scoring eight points during that stretch and Bogle adding back to back steals and layups to put the Wildcats up 26-22 at the break.A 9-1 run in the third quarter allowed the Wildcats to build a double-digit lead of their own, with Niblack dish-ing to BraNiyah Dixon for a bucket to make it 35-25 with 3:02 on the clock. Niblack added a basket of her own in the waning seconds of the third to put Wildwood up 41-30. Hutchinson tried to rally her team in the fourth, making a 3-pointer and a two-point basket to cut the deficit to 45-38. A 3-pointer by Quinn and a free throw by Hutchin-son drew the Tiger Sharks to within four with 2:40 to play before Niblacks three-point play dis-qualified Quinn from the game.Despite the disappoint-ment of the loss, Parker said he was extremely proud of the season put together by the Port St. Joe squad led by seniors Hutchinson, Quinn, ShaMario Cole, and Aliyah Johnson."It was a great season," he said. "It started in the summer time. Every goal we set for ourselves, we met; we just didnt win it all. But we had great chemistry. When youve got four seniors and a junior out of 13 girls and the rest are middle school, that took a lot for my seniors to bring those girls along and believe in them."

I thought our ath-leticism and speed could hurt (Bishop Kenny) a little bit and hopefully we can do the same against (Ponte Vedra)."The Sharks are led by sophomore guard Chan-ning Chappell, who is scoring a team-best 15.4 points per game and has made 72 3-pointers this season. Senior point guard Tess Tib-bits is also averaging 8.5 points and 4.1 assists per game, while 6-foot-1 junior post player Jackie Wagner is putting in 7.2 points and six rebounds per contest. Ponte Vedra is slightly bigger than Bishop Kenny, with junior Leah McCarthy giving the Sharks two players at 6-foot or better, but Mason said he believes 5-10 junior Ladaiizha Taylor can present prob-lems for Ponte Vedra as well."They do have some good size," he said, "but I think (Taylors) athleti-cism will bother them a little bit. I think as long as we stay disciplined that we have a chance to win the game."Taylor is averaging 12.9 points and 7.3 rebounds this season while making 49 percent of her shots from the field. JaTayvia Holley has been the top scorer for Mosley this season at 18.2 points per game to go with 4.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game, and leads the Dolphins with 62 made 3-pointers. Sophomore point guard JaMya Broglen is putting in 7.3 points per game along with team highs in assists (3.7) and steals (4.2) per contest.Mosleys guards were able to disrupt Bishop Kennys rhythm with their defensive pressure while attacking the paint off the dribble with suc-cess at the other end of the court. Mason said that the game plan for Ponte Vedra is pretty much the same."Absolutely," he said, "the plan will be very similar. Were going to try to speed the ball up and push it, make them play fast, which I really didnt see them do on film. Were going to try to take some of those things away from them that they do well. Well speed it up and do what we do best."The Dolphins have made it to the state semifinals for the first time in program history despite having just one senior and with four of their top seven rotation players either freshmen or sophomores. Despite that youth, Mason said he isnt that concerned about his players being affected by the big stage of playing at The Lake-land Center."I think theyll be fine," he said. "I dont think theres a moment that has been too big for this team. Since the summer, weve been playing in big games against tough teams with last-second shots and theyve never shied away from that. The Choctaw, Rickards, and Bishop Kenny games, those experiences just build us. I dont think the moment will be too big for them."With everyone but Holley back for the Dol-phins next season, this could be just the beginning of a sustained run of competing for state titles for Mosley. However, Mason said that setting the stage for a future Dolphins team to win a championship isnt enough for any of his players."At this point, were not settling," he said. "Were going down here and were not just happy to make it to Lakeland. The end goal is to win a state title and well put our best foot forward. I couldnt be happier for the girls and I know theyre excited, but I have to believe they wont be satisfied until they win it." DOLPHINSFrom Page C1 Erica Ramsey had two hits, reached four times and scored four runs for the Tiger Sharks. Shell likely move to third base when last years catcher Brooklyn Quinn returns from Lakeland, where she was playing for Port St. Joe in the Class 1A girls basketball state tournament this week."Weve got a young team," Port St. Joe coach Jim Belin stated the obvi-ous. "Were just trying to keep moving forward."The Tiger Sharks had 10 hits off Wollenzien, a 14-year-old transfer from Wisconsin who also fit nicely into the evenings youth move-ment theme. Wollenzien fanned seven and walked only two. The major set-back was a defense that made 11 errors behind her on mostly routine plays."Weve got four girls starting who have never played competitive softball at any level," Rutherford coach David Barron said. "Thats what happens when you have no feeder program."For many of them this is their first experience and its coming on the varsity."Pharielle Koonce stroked an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning that scored Joydon Westinghouse to get the Rams within 3-1.Koonce added a tworun double in the sixth that plated Westing-house, who had walked, and Wollenzien, who reached on an infield single.That also enabled the Rams to avoid the 10-run mercy rule as they ral-lied within 11-3 after six innings and Tia Sharpe scored an unearned run in the seventh for the final.Zinker added two hits and an RBI for the Tiger Sharks, Carley Fortner knocked in two runs and Abby Todd, the other eighth-grader in the lineup, had two hits and scored a run.

PUSKAR/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By David AdlersteinThe Apalachicola TimesEASTPOINT „ The Chipley Tigers got past the Franklin County Seahawks Tuesday night to earn a berth in the Class 1A boys basket-ball semifinals in Lakeland.But it wasnt without a fight in a 57-50 decision.After opening the game with a pair of 3-pointers, Chipley led by just 20-18 at the half, and by 33-29 after three quarters.It wasnt until the Tigers reeled off four unanswered baskets, two off steals by junior guard Kelvin Dean, that they could gain separation and finally ensure a Region 2-1A championship."Two turnovers at the top of the key; they took the ball right out of our hands," first-year Franklin County coach Nathan West said. "We had only 11 turnovers, but we just had too many at the wrong time „ that hurt us there."Franklin County finished 13-17 after upsetting Baker in the semifinals to earn the right to host Chipley. The Tigers, 19-10, had fallen by 25 points to Baker in the District 3-1A final. "We didnt take care of the ball down the stretch," West said. "If we did that right there, it would be a different ballgame."With five minutes left to play, the Seahawks started fouling and the Tigers sank only 9-21 free throws down the stretch. That gave the Seahawks an outside chance and with 19 seconds left Seahawks junior guard Daijon Penamon, who led all scorers with 22 points, nailed a 3-pointer to cut the margin to 52-49."We missed a lot of free throws tonight but we made up for them at the defensive end," said Tigers coach Mike Gates, who went with a pesky man-to-man that kept the Seahawks off-balance most of the game."We played hard defense. They got after it," Gates said.Senior point guard P.J. Spencer, who led the Tigers with 21 points, sank a pair of free throws with 15 seconds left.Senior forward Dominic Bouton, who added 14 points, added two free throws and senior center Brian Williams made one of two to clinch the outcome.As a team, however, Chipley only was 14-28 at the free-throw line.The Seahawks were 9-13 and pulled down 26 rebounds. Only four, however, came on their offensive board."They probably had 11 or 12, thats not good there," West said. "They got a lot of second-chance opportunities that hurt us down the stretch."Thats just an effort thing. They just outworked us, out-efforted us on the glass." Blountstown 61, Bethlehem 57BONIFAY „ The Tigers punched their ticket to Lake-land thanks to 31 points from senior guard KK Godwin, who outdueled Wildcats junior guard Jordan Sumner, who led Bethlehem with 26 points.Blountstown (22-3) willtake on Chipley on Monday in the 1A state semi-finals. Bethlehems season ended22-8.Godwin scored 21 of his 31 points in the first half to give the Tigers a 33-26 lead at the break. The Tigers had a five-point lead at the end of the third quarter and never let the Wildcats get closer than three points in the fourth quarter.Jamal Howard added 11 points for Blountstown, followed by Denzel Washington with 10 and Treven Smith with seven. Kobe Hendrix added 11 points for Bethlehem.Chipley, Blountstown earn state bidsBy Kevin BrockwayGainesville SunTUSCALOOSA, Ala. „ This was the kind of effort Florida coach Mike White wanted to see heading into March.Bodies flying around on defense. Ball movement on offense. Not settling for 3-point shots.OK, so maybe rebound-ing wasnt so great Tuesday, but in all other phases, Flor-ida was dominant in a 73-52 win over Alabama at Coleman Coliseum. The Gators (19-11, 10-7 SEC) won their second straight and secured a winning record in league play, which should lock up an NCAA Tournament at-large berth.Florida also avenged a 68-50 home loss to Alabama on Feb. 3.We kind of got embar-rassed last time,Ž said Florida junior guard Jalen Hudson, who led three UF scorers in double figures with 27 points. Nobody liked that feeling, especially at home. We definitely owed them one.ŽIt showed on the defensive end of the floor. The Gators held Alabama to 18 first-half points, a season low for points allowed in the first half, and built a 37-18 halftime lead.Gators roll over Tide

ArmasThe Associated PressMADISON, Wis. „ What an odd year in the Big Ten.Michigan State looks Final Four-worthy but faces off-court questions. Wisconsin looks better of late but still faces a losing record.And Nebraska „ Nebraska! „ is up.Its time to take this Midwest hoops show back on the road again.The Big Ten Tourna-ment begins Wednesday, one week earlier than usual at a rather unusual venue: Madison Square Garden in New York. While well outside of the leagues predominantlyMidwest footprint, the Garden cant be beat as one of the traditional hubs of college basketball. No better place for a potential NCAA bubble team like Nebraska to make a stand. The Cornhuskers had a school-record 13 conference wins to bust its reputation as a lower-division dweller.Personally I think so,Ž guard Anton Gill said when asked after a 76-64 win Sunday over Penn State if Nebraska had done enough to make the NCAAs. But were not going down to New York just to play around. We want to win that, too. We feel like we have the best team in the Big Ten.ŽThat title actually belongs to Michigan State.Coach Tom Izzos team won the conference crown outright and the top seed in the Big Ten tourney by grinding out a 68-63 win at Wisconsin in a matchup of the last two team conference teams to make the Final Four (2015).Each school has had had challenging seasons for different reasons.The young Badgers endured growing pains and an uncharacteristic losing season. But there are signs that the inexperienced players surrounding Ethan Happ are finally getting it after winning four of five games before ending the regular season with a close loss to Michigan State. In the locker room, guard Brad Davison had a message for his fellow Badgers after the fresh-man scored a career-high 30 points.I just told them, Id rather beat the next week anyway,Ž Davison said, referring to the Big Ten tourney. Its not college football. Its college bas-ketball, where the regular season is kind of washed away.ŽMichigan States most pressing issues have come off the court. Questions have swirled over how the school handled alle-gations against disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar, leading to broader questions about how Izzo and other coaches at the school have dealt with various allegations against players.Following a Yahoo Sports report last week, Michigan State said its compliance office discov-ered that Bridges family had dinner with an agent last winter without his knowledge, committing an NCAA violation.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, February 28, 2018 C5 SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFPITTSBURGHPenguins sign Hornqvist to 5-year extensionThe Pittsburgh Penguins werent about to let Patric Hornqvist get away.The two-time defending Stanley Cup champions signed the 31-year-old forward to a five-year extension Tuesday that runs through the 2022-23 season. The deal has an average annual value of $5.3 million.He was set to become a free agent this summer but didnt hesitate on an extension once he was approached by general manager Jim Rutherford, who rarely makes such a move in the middle of the year.Hornqvist has been a vital part of Pittsburghs title runs. He scored the series-clinching goal in Game 6 of the 2017 Stan-ley Cup finals against Nashville.Hornqvist said hes glad the process is over so he can focus on hockey.NEW YORK NASL cancels season after losing court rulingThe North American Soccer League canceled its 2018 season after a federal court appeals court denied its attempt to maintain second-tier status.The NASL held second-tier status in the U.S. Soccer Federation from 2011 through last year. It filed an antitrust suit against USSF in September after its status was not renewed and asked for an injunction to preserve it. A District Court denied the injunction in November, a decision upheld Friday by a unanimous threejudge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.NASL Interim Commissioner Rishi Sehgal says in a statement Tuesday playing the 2018 season is no longer a possibilityŽ but it will press ahead with the antitrust suit and hopes to resume play in 2019.PHILADELPHIAEagles Donnie Jones announces retirementEagles punter Donnie Jones has retired after 14 seasons in the NFL.Jones made the announcement on Tuesday.Jones played for Seattle, Miami, St. Louis and Houston before joining Philadelphia in 2013. He set the record for most regular-season games played by an Eagles punter (80). He finishes his career with the third-longest con-secutive-games-played streak (208) behind only Texans punter Shane Lechler (254) and Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (235).Although I am retiring, I will always be an Eagle and will forever have a special place in my heart for the city of Philadel-phia,Ž Jones said.It is a great honor to be a part of the first Super Bowl championship team in Eagles history and there is no better way to finish my career.Ž The Associated Press By Samuel Petrequin and Rob HarrisThe Associated PressPARIS „ The Brazilian national team doctor has flown to Paris to assess Neymars injury, but Paris Saint-Germain will have the final say on how to treat the fractured foot and ankle sprain.PSG coach Unai Emery denied reports Neymar will require surgery, saying the Brazil forward needs rest and could still recover in time to face Real Madrid in the Champions League next week.Neymar is not going to be operated on, this information is false,Ž Emery said.The Brazilian soccer federations technical coordinator Edu Gaspar said it would respectŽ the view of the PSG medical staff, despite the national team doctor flying to Paris.Neymar is under the care of Paris Saint-Ger-main,Ž Edu said after a World Cup meeting in the Russian resort of Sochi. Until Paris Saint-Germain decides on his future in terms of training or so on we will continue to wait. A doctor from Brazil has gone to accompany him and monitor the news from Paris Saint-Germain.ŽThe injury comes with less than four months until Bra zil opens its World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17.We cannot think about the World Cup yet,Ž Edu said.PSG broke soccers transfer record last year by paying Barcelona 222 million euros ($260 mil-lion) to buy Neymar.Neymar was hurt on Sunday as the French league leader beat Mar-seille 3-0. After tests revealed he has a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot along with an ankle injury, reports suggested Neymar opted for surgery and he would be sidelined for up to two months.Metatarsal injuries are common in soccer and can sometimes lead to a lengthy absence from the pitch. After speak-ing with the club doctor, Emery said Neymar has a small crack in the fifth metatarsal.ŽWell see how things evolve in the coming days before making a decision with him,Ž he said.Emery did not say how long Neymar will be sidelined but insisted there is a small option he can be ready for the matchŽ against Madrid. PSG trails 3-1 from the first leg of the last-16 matchup in the premier European competition that Neymar was signed to win for the French capital club.Emery said he did not feel he made a mistake by letting Neymar play against Marseille despite the crucial Champions League match looming.PSG denies Neymar requires surgery By Ronald BlumThe Associated PressBRADENTON, Fla. „ Tyler Clippard wore a black jersey with a white players union logo and pitched hitless ball for two innings against ama-teurs in the green shirts of the East Japan Railway Company.He had the poorest per-sonal results of his nine major league seasons, yet ended the year with a celebration in the clubhouse of the World Series champion Houston Astros. This is not how the 33-yearold right-hander envisioned spring training.We know that my year last year was a bad year, but at the end of the day how bad was it? And it wasnt as bad as some that got significant contracts,Ž he said Tuesday after appear-ing in the first of two exhibition games for free agents scheduled for this week at the IMG Academy.Thirty-eight players have attended the camp since workouts started Feb. 14. They wonder why they are on the outside while several teams have jettisoned veter-ans to fill a higher percentage of their roster spots with lower-salaried youth.The players association filed a grievance Friday against the Miami Marlins, Oakland Athletics, Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays, accusing the teams of failing to appropriately spend revenue-sharing money.Isnt the goal to win the World Series every year? I think every team should want to win the World Series every year,Ž 35-year-old left-hander Tom Gorzelanny said. Youre not trying to go out there and say Id rather save money than win games.ŽTwo players agreed to minor league deals after attending camp: righthander Carlos Torres with Cleveland and left-hander Tommy Layne with Boston. First baseman Mike Napoli had been on the roster for the exhibition, but left for Ari-zona and a physical needed to finalize a minor league con-tract with the Indians. Second baseman Neil Walker arrived this week.This camp is similar to the one run by the union at Homestead, Florida, follow-ing the end of the 1994-95 strike. Dave Gallagher attended then as a player and signed with Philadelphia. Now he is a coach under man-ager Bo Porter.They start to lose hope,Ž he said. And its a little bit humiliating.ŽThe starting lineup included center fielder Ale-jandro De Aza, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, designated hitter Juan Francisco, first baseman Tyler Moore, right fielder Luke Scott, third base-man Chris Johnson, shortstop Omar Infante, left fielder Nolan Reimold and second baseman Tyler Ladendorf. The free agents won 2-0 in five innings, allowing just one hit. Several scouts looked on from the small stands, which had three rows of blue seats and nine rows of metal bleachers.Its not like anybody here that Ive talked to is here waiting for a 10-year deal or a five-year deal. These are guys just waiting to get a job,Ž said the 32-year-old Saltalamac-chia, who went 1 for 25 for Toronto last season.Ive called six or seven teams myself. My agents called teams and weve told them, hey, Ill go to TripleA. Ill go to Double-A. I just want to play. Let me be an insurance policy.ŽTop free agents have skipped the camp to continue working out on their own, a group that includes pitchers Jake Arrieta, Alex Cobb, Tommy Lynn and Greg Hol-land, and third baseman Mike Moustakas.Its been absolutely remarkable to me some of the articles that I have seen suggesting that veteran lead-ership and a veteran presence is overvalued and doesnt have what it used to have,Ž said union head Tony Clark, a former All-Star first base-man. Thats disheartening, to believe that that is the philosophy of some of those making personnel decisions.ŽGorzelanny is trying to prove hes healthy after hurt-ing his pitching shoulder in spring training last year and spending the season in the New York Mets minor league system. Clippard has turned down minor league offers, saying he considers himself a big leaguer and deserves a spot on a 40-man roster. Walker remains confident, coming off a decent season when he hit .265 with 14 homers and 49 RBIs for the Mets and Milwaukee.Certainly going into this offseason I didnt envision myself at this time of the year not having a team to play for,Ž he said. Ive always played at a high level, so Ive kind of just assumed that at least by late January, early February that I would be having serious discussions with somebody, and that hasnt happened yet.ŽClark said only Boston and Washington project to be over the luxury-tax threshold level this year.Baseballs labor contract set restraints on signing bonuses for draft picks starting in 2012 and for international ama-teurs beginning last summer. The changes last summer, which included steeper pen-alties for teams exceeding the luxury tax threshold by more than $40 million, coincided with more teams deciding to rebuild their rosters with youth.Free agents play against amateurs in exhibitionTony Clark, left, head of the Major League Baseball Players Association, shakes hands with free agent player Chris Colabello before an exhibition game against JR East, a Japanese amateur team, Tuesday in Bradenton, Fla.

** DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, Al,Ž and I have been together for two years off and on. We dated casually for six months before we decided to be exclusive. Unbeknownst to him, I was also sleeping with someone else, Brandon.Ž Al and I had a fight and broke up for a few months, and during that time I slept with another good friend of mine, Marc.Ž When Marc and I decided it wasnt serious and moved on, Al and I got back together. I didnt feel obligated to tell Al about it at the time, since technicallyŽ I did nothing wrong. But as we became more and more serious, it occurred to me that it was a lie of omission, since we interact with both men on a social level. I told Al, and he isnt handling it well, so now Im at a loss about what to do. Honesty and time are key, I know, but he is distancing himself from me. Do I let him go? „ WRONG IN THE EASTDEAR WRONG: Not all relationships last forever. Its possible that this one has run its course. If you and Al had agreed you would both be abstinent after the separation, he has reason to be upset. If you had promised each other there would be an accounting of who each of you had been with and you didnt live up to it, I can see why he would be distancing. However, if an understanding wasnt in place, then you were free to be with others and you did nothing wrong. If Al no longer wants to be with you „ for whatever reason „ you have no choice but to let him go. DEAR ABBY: Is it wrong to paint my 2 -year-old boys fingernails when he begs me to? Im a stay-at-home mom and very close with my son. When I paint my nails (I paint them pink), my son sees me and insists I paint his toes and fingers just like Mommy.Ž I see it as all in fun, but my mother-in-law makes snide comments that boys shouldnt have their nails painted. My husband has also said I should stop. „ PRETTY IN PINKDEAR PRETTY: Your motherin-law appears to think that polishing your sons nails will makeŽ him effeminate. Its no more valid than her not doing it has madeŽ your husband masculine. Ignore the snide remarks.DEAR ABBYO -and-on relationship may be o again after confession The News Herald | Wednesday, February 28, 2018 C7ARIES (March 21-April 19) „ You wont be able to put your “ nger on exactly whats changed. Youre you, only happier. With a cursory look at the situation, it will be hard to say why. But closer examination just might reveal the culprit: love. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) „ The joke suggests we are all equal, but some are more equal than others. While you dont believe youre superior or special, youll get so much validation from the outside world today that it will be challenging to remain humble. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) „ Should you do it? Someone in the media is doing it. A friend is doing it, and its working great for that person. But is it right for you? The question is, is it affordable for you? This one is really only worthy of a small risk. CANCER (June 22-July 22) „ Revel in your amateur status in some regard today. Amateurs are not bound by the rules of taste or commerce that experts are held to. They can express more freely their unique take on the subject. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) „ When you listen to a band, you may be actually hearing “ ve to 60 different instruments playing parts, but what you experience is a song. Dont get too caught up in the elements today. None of them are all of you. Youre all of them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) „ Youll “ nd yourself in a position to defend, confront or dance around an issue. Consider employing the enormously useful power of misdirection, as a distraction will do wonders for the situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) „ Theyll tell you they need it sooner, that you should move faster, that its not quite enough. Before you move to appease them, consider whether or not these are truly reasonable requests. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) „ Language will be the difference. It will make something happen instead of nothing. It will be the reason A happens instead of B. Put some thought, planning and intention behind your choice of words. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) „ Since you cant very well surprise someone by giving them what they were expecting, youll think broader and more creatively before making your move. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) „ The yogic Triangle Pose, or Trikonasana, requires open eyes. Today will require similar balancing tactics. Find a point of focus in your sky-high dreams while grounding yourself. Reach up and down at the same time. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) „ The power move will be to recognize where youre not as strong, and where there might be gaps in your resources or knowledge, and then plan a way to solve for those gaps. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) „ Youve been surprised before by your friends uncharacteristic behavior, only now its not surprising because it has indeed become a part of the character you now understand your friend to possess.HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS DIVERSIONSTrivia FunŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, February 28, 2018 D1 FOOD EASY RECIPEMASON JAR SALADPopsugar.com recently shared the four steps to a perfect Mason jar salad: 1. Add the dressing. Start with 3 to 4 tablespoons of salad dressing for a quart jar, or 2 tablespoons for a pint jar. 2. Add the base layer. This should include ingredients that dont soak up dressing, like carrots, cherry tomatoes, sugar snap peas or chickpeas. 3. Continue layering. Pack the layers as tightly as possible. 4. Top with greens and cheese. The greens create a moisture barrier to keep the salad from getting soggy. Add cheese and/or nuts last. HEALTHY EATINGSNACKING FOR YOUR HEART Be careful of what you snack on between meals. High-fat and high-sugar snacks are popular, but ultimately unhealthy. Opt for fresh instead of processed, and choose fresh fruits and vegetables for your snacks between meals. TIP OF THE WEEKKIDS AND HEALTHY EATINGTo raise a child with a healthy attitude about food and body image, here are some tips from The Gentle Eating BookŽ by Sarah Ockwell-Smith: € Trust children to eat instinctively. € Set a good example. Dont diet in front of your kids. € Dont reward kids for eating anything. „ Brandpoint Not everyone is willing to fork over an entire paycheck for the health halo of food trends such as matcha lattes, sprouted almonds or cold-pressed green juice. And they dont necessarily have to. The belief in the health power of expensive foods „ or that healthy foods need to cost more „ is misguided, according to Rebecca Reczek, a food psychologist and marketing researcher. Reczek and her colleagues regularly survey how people often make decisions based on assumptions about the way the world works „ that greenŽ products are less effective, for example, or that unhealthy foods taste better. I want to know: What are the barriers that stop people from making healthy choices?Ž Reczek said. Across five related studies, the researchers found that people generally are very likely to think that healthy foods are more expensive, and vice versa. In one experiment, participants assigned a higher price to granola bites with a health rating of Athan bites they were told graded a C-. Conversely, researchers found that subjects rated an expensive breakfast cracker as healthier than an identical cracker with a lower price. In other experiments, participants, when told to pick the healthiest lunch options, chose the most expensive chicken wrap, and, when told that a product with the slogan Healthiest Protein Bar on the PlanetŽ cost just 99 cents, spent significantly more time reading reviews of the product. Such mental prejudice „ which Reczek dubs the Health = ExpensiveŽ intuition „ matters during grocery shopping, for which consumers depend on habit and gut reactions, not detailed, critical analysis of ingredients and value. Certainly, Reczek said, gluten-free breads and pastries tend to cost more, as do certain types of organic produce. But turmeric, kale and chia seeds are examples of relatively inexpensive ingredients that have had their moments in the spotlight within the wellness community. The only caveat, she said, is that cheap, nutritious foods „ such as bulk beans, whole grains, frozen veggies, potatoes and fresh produce „ might require extra cooking time.

Those who took the risk were bootleggers who stored whiskey in the cave during prohibition. Nearly 100 years later, my Everyday California kayak group stared at the enormous swells thrashing angrily against rock walls at the entrance, while swirling rips threatened the lives of anyone who dared venture inside. It was obvious we were not welcome in this cave, so we kayaked away, alongside sea lions. My kayak bobbed under the suns warm rays as I stared mesmerized toward the pristine shore and reminisced on my experience in La Jolla. On Friday evening, I arrived in time for dinner at Whisknladle, one of a plethora of casual, yet upscale dining options in an area known for its local catch and social vibe. A glass of Chablis paired well with an amuse bouche of Gruyre gougres and Pink Lady apple salad with walnuts, while my main course of scallops with sweet-glazed cubes of pork belly implied Id landed in foodie heaven. However, La Jolla presented much more than local, fresh catch: a feeling of living the good life. As a guest of the Balineseinspired Pantai Inn, a mere 20 minutes from San Diego, a Mercedes SUV was available on-call to deliver me in front of my second-floor bungalow. Inside, a full kitchen, living room with a view of La Jolla Cove, and a bedroom with a four-poster bed garlanded in white fish netting added to the centering energy flow. By morning, after a short stop in the courtyard for a buffet breakfast with an ocean view, I jogged across the street to walk the cove where sea lions and seals sunbathed on rocks below. Natures eye candy lured me to continue my exploration with a walk across town, past bustling downtown shops, art galleries, La Jolla murals and Spanish architecture, to lunch at Galaxy Taco. Surrounded by walls of Mexican-inspired graffiti, I sat inside to sip a margarita and munch housemade blue chips dipped in award-worthy guacamole made with a kick of Serrano pepper. I ate so much guacamole I could barely finish two of the best tacos Id ever tasted: one crispy fish taco and a carnitas. My final night concluded with an all-star dining experience at Georges at the Cove, where I highly recommend a starter bowl of tender octopus mixed with bits of Andouille sausage for added spice, and an entre of local, fresh yellowtail.
