Email photos to yourpix@pcnh.com. In the wake of this weeks deadly school shooting in South Florida, local residents and leaders Friday offered widely split opinions on the best path forward „ from arming more teachers and officers to banning semiautomatic weapons. Carey Scott: Senator Gainer, Representative Dunn and Superintendent Husfelt are all dedicated and empathetic public servants. They clearly have a grasp of, and a deep concern for, the dangers now present that represent developments in our society that defy understanding. I will leave the debate points to them and those with opposing views. However, although mentioned, almost in passing, is the issue of mental health and prevalence of now chronic disorders that play a huge role in many of these violent and deadly incidents. Perhaps a closer look at psychoactive psychiatric drugs, now widely dispensed and aggressively marketed, may prove both enlightening and helpful. I have not conducted any vigorous review of the literature but I would suspect that there is a direct relationship between these powerful neuro-chemical agents and what is now sadly common in our schools. Someone earlier commented, using the word oligarchy. Again, I cannot offer a quanti“ ed, well researched and explored thesis of this relationship but simple observation and the last several decades of diagnostic history strongly suggest this can be ignored only at our collective peril. My thoughts and prayers go out to all victims and families touched by these incredibly horrible tragedies. The pharmaceutical industry bears a public duty to actively participate in, and contribute to, the process of “ nding contributing causes and potential solutions. I am not offering commentary regarding the NRA but I can tell you that Big PharmasŽ lobbying efforts are deeper and further reaching than any other industry I have seen. My point is that we should exhaust every avenue of inquiry. Godspeed to all who work for the public good, your service is incredibly valuable and appreciated.ŽREADER FEEDBACKToday is Wednesday, March 7 the 66th day of 2018. There are 299 days left in the year.Highlight in HistoryOn March 7, 1965 a march by civil rights demonstrators was violently broken up at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, by state troopers and a sheriffs posse in what came to be known as Bloody Sunday.ŽOn this dateIn 1530 Pope Clement VII threatened to excommunicate Englands King Henry VIII if he went through with plans to marry Anne Boleyn, who became Henrys second wife after Catherine of Aragon.

Her daughter Abigail was killed. Blumenstein, who is pregnant, was walking with friend Lauren Lew, who had 1-year-old Joshua in a stroller. He died and Lew was also injured. A 46-year-old man was also struck by the car and was expected to sur-vive. He and the two women were hospitalized.JERUSALEMEinstein note fetches $6,100 at Jerusalem auctionFor Albert Einstein, it turns out the law of attraction was relative.A handwritten note by the Nobel-winning scientist, written to a young woman who apparently caught his eye during a trip to Italy, was sold at auction in Jerusalem on Tuesday.Winners Auctions and Exhibitions said Einstein was visiting his sister in Florence in October 1921 and learned that a young chemis-try student named Elisabetta Piccini lived in the apartment upstairs. It said the 42-year-old Einstein was interested in meeting the 22-year-old woman, who was the daugh-ter of a famous chemist, but she was too shy and turned him down.PARISFrance wants a stop to sexist stereotypes in advertisingLeading French advertisers and the countrys broadcast watchdog launched a nationwide plan Tuesday to fight sexist stereotypes in ads France is seeing an upsurge in such moves in favor of womens rights, notably in the wake of sexual abuse revela-tions in Hollywood that raised awareness of sexual violence and harassment around the world. Some, however, worry that things are going too far. The head of Frances advertising regulator sought to allay those fears.Nudity can be acceptableŽ in advertising for bathtubs and body creams, for example „ but not to sell a car,Ž Stephane Martin told The Associated Press.LOS ANGELESCalif. parents who housed kids in desert shack released A Southern California couple who pleaded not guilty to child abuse after authorities found them housing their three children in a makeshift shack was freed from jail Tuesday.Daniel Panico, 73, and Mona Kirk, 51, were released after their attorneys argued they arent a flight risk and couldnt afford their $300,000 bail.Kirks attorney, Elizabeth Crabtree, said she and Panicos attorney will argue next week that the couple deserves to be reunited with their children. Eventually theyll argue for the charges to be dropped.I dont think theres anything at this point that substantiates abuse,Ž Crabtree said, adding that the couple should never have been arrested.BERLINTurkey asks Germany to change travel adviceTurkeys foreign minister is urging Germany to reconsider its travel advice for his country, which has seen a slump in German tourists in recent years.

[PRADEEP PATHIRAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Lindsey TannerThe Associated PressCHICAGO „ A yearlong study offers rigorous new evidence against using pre-scription opioids for chronic pain.In patients with stubborn back aches or hip or knee arthritis, opioids worked no better than over-the-counter drugs or other nonopioids at reducing problems with walking or sleeping. And they provided slightly less pain relief,Opioids tested included generic Vicodin, oxycodone or fentanyl patches although few patients needed the most potent opioids. Nonopioids included generic Tylenol, ibuprofen and prescription pills for nerve or muscle pain. The study randomly assigned patients to take opioids or other painkillers. Thats the gold standard design for research.If they dont work better than less risky drugs, theres no reason to use opioids given their really nasty side effects „ death and addiction,Ž said lead author Dr. Erin Krebs, a physician and researcher with the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Health Care System.The results likely will sur-prise many people because opioids have this reputation as being really powerful pain-killers, and that is not what we found,Ž Krebs said.The results echo less rigorous studies and bolster guidelines against routine use of opioids for chronic pain.The study was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.About 42,000 drug over-dose deaths in the U.S. in 2016 involved opioids, including prescription painkillers, heroin and fentanyl. Many people get hooked while taking opioids prescribed for injuries or other short-term pain and move on to cheaper, more accessible illicit drugs like heroin.A report released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found emergency rooms saw a big jump in over-doses from opioids last year. Opioid overdoses increased 30 percent late last summer, compared to the same three-month period in 2016. The biggest jumps were in the Midwest and in cities, but increases occurred nationwide. The report did not break down overdoses by type of opioid.U.S. government guide-lines in 2016 said opioids are not the preferred treatment for chronic pain, and they recommend non-drug treat-ment or nonopioid painkillers instead. Opioids should only be used if other methods dont work for chronic pain, the guidelines recommend. Pre-scribing rates have declined slightly in recent years although they are still much higher than two decades ago.Krebs said the strongest evidence from other studies shows that physical therapy, exercise or reha-bilitation therapy works best for chronic pain. And she said noted that there are a variety of nonopioid drugs to try if one type doesnt work.The study involved 234 patients from Minneapolisarea VA clinics who were assigned to use generic versions of opioids or nono-pioids for a year. Follow-up ended in 2016.This is a very important study,Ž said Dr. David Reuben, geriatrics chief at UCLAs medical school. It will likely change the approach to managing long-term back, hip and knee pain.ŽHe noted one limitation „ most study participants were men, but Krebs said the results in women studied were similar.The studys opioid patients started on relatively low daily doses of morphine, oxyco-done or generic Vicodin. They switched to higher doses if needed or to long-acting opioids or fentanyl patches. The nonopioid group started on acetaminophen, ibuprofen or similar anti-inflammatory drugs. They also could switch to higher doses or prescription nonopioid pain pills. Few in either group used the strongest medicines.Patients reported changes in function or pain on questionnaires. Function scores improved in each group by about two points on an 11-point scale, where higher scores meant worse function. Both groups started out with average pain and function scores of about 5.5 points.Pain intensity dropped about two points in the nono-pioid group and slightly less in the opioid patients.Other research has shown that over-the-counter med-icines can also work as well as opioids at treating shortterm pain, including from broken bones, kidney stones or dental work.Prescription opioids fail chronic pain testA pharmacy technician sorts hydrocodone and acetaminophen tablets, also known as Vicodin, at the Oklahoma Hospital Discount Pharmacy in Edmond, Okla. Opioids including Vicodin and fentanyl patches worked no better than Tylenol and other over-the-counter pills at relieving chronic back pain and hip and knee arthritis in a year-long study of mostly men at Minneapolis VA clinics.

The countys 5 percent bed taxes, paid by people staying in hotels, gener-ates about $18 millionto $20 million a year, and it has been continuing to increase as more hotels are builtand more events are held on the Beach.The annual payment on the sports park loan will beabout $3.1 million, which officials estimate to be less than 20 percent of what the bed tax willgenerate.That is more than enough to pay the debt serviceŽ on the bond, said County Finance Director Ashley Stukey.The resolution the commission approved pledges bed tax revenues as the funding source for the bond payment.This resolution states that if the (bed) tax were to go away, the county is not obligated to pay the debt,Ž Stukey said.But Bay County Clerk Bill Kinsaul said if there were a default on the bonds „which he could not envision happen-ing „ it potentially could hurt the countys credit rating.Ultimately, if something happened, the TDC is the county,Ž Kin-saultold commissioners. I dont think the county could completely divest itself from it if something were to occur.ŽKinsaul said after the meeting thatthree-fifthsof the bed taxes arent pledged to projects, so there should be plenty of bed tax money to pay off the bonds.Thats why we are getting this interest rate in this environment. We have a great rating, a great revenue stream,Ž he said.On Tuesday, the com-mission also voted to:€ Give County Manager Bob Majka high grades in his performance review,offering him an open-end contract that increases his annual salary from $148,961,not includingbenefits, to $170,000 a year. The contract calls for Majkato receiveannual raises based on the average of what county employees receive, and he can make no more than $200,000 a year unless the contractwere modified. Commission Chairman Bill Dozier, who negotiated the new contract, researched comparably populated counties and Panhandle counties for insight into salaries earned by their administrators, and found that the county managers in Charlotte, Hernando and Indian River counties, each with populations very close to Bays 181,635, earn between $173,000 and $180,000.€ HireMarshall Broth-ers Construction to build a temporary alternative drinking water line to the main water line that is under the concrete of the Hathaway Bridge.

School Safety and Security Chief Mike Jones said the district had just started using the app Monday and only two schools were getting set up to use it, one of those being Cherry Street.Jones, who received the alert on his phone during an interview with The News Herald, immediately called officials at the school who said they had accidentally triggered the alert thinking the app was in test mode.We thought it was in test mode,Ž Principal Blythe Carpenter said to Jones over the phone. No alert, no alert.ŽJones then had to get on the phone with Panama City police, Panama City Beach police and his own officers to let them know about the false alarm and to stand down, while his dispatchers called Spring-field and Parker police, and the Bay County Sheriffs Office.When contacted, Panama City police said the alert caused a mas-siveŽ response on their end. About eight minutes after the alert went out, 37 law enforcement officers in the area had acknowledged the alert and were ready to or were actively responding.The app is one of the new initiatives adopted by the school district to bolster safety. Jones said he knows about other apps and programs, but School Guard is the first one the district gave a serious look. Superintendent Bill Husfelt estimated the cost would be about $57,000 for a three-year contract.Its not cheap,Ž said Jones. But whats the price you put on safety? Im glad we got it, thats for sure,Ž he continued. Had that been the real McCoy, everyone was coming.ŽThe app, also called Hero911, has certain safeguards built in meant to prevent accidental triggering. At a recent school safety workshop, Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said there is a multistep process to trigger an alert, and only certain per-sonnel will be authorized to use it. The alert also has to come from within the geographic radius of the school, meaning a curious child at home or a stray touch cannot activate the response.There also is a banner which displays at the top of the app when it is in test mode.According to its website, school districts in more than 20 states are using School Guard and the Hero911 app.On its social media accounts, Bay District Schools let parents know what had happened: Cherry Street Elementary School was testing our new School Guard app this morning but the testing window was closed and a real alarm went out. The good news is the app works for sure and generates an amazing response from law enforcement.

** A8 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Robert Burns and Hyung-Jin KimThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump greeted North Koreas reported willingness to negotiate away its atomic weapons with both hope and skepticism Tuesday, insisting a potential dip-lomatic breakthrough be tested against the Norths long history of decep-tion and threats to target U.S. cities with nuclear missiles.I really believe they are sincere,Ž Trump said at a White House news conference, sounding more optimistic than his intelligence chief, Dan Coats, who told a Senate hearing he has very, very low c onfidenceŽ that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un intends to give up his nuclear arms.Maybe this is a breakthrough. I seriously doubt it,Ž Coats said.A senior South Korean presidential adviser said Tuesday that Kim expressed a willingness to discuss nuclear disarmament and halt nuclear and missile tests during future talks with the United States. The North didnt confirm those con-cessions, which would amount to a dramatic about-face for a nation that has frequently vowed to preserve its nuclear arsenal at any cost.Chung Eui-yong, the South Korean official who spoke after participating in talks with Kim in Pyongyang, also said the North Korean dictator had agreed to meet with South Koreas president at a border village in late April.Trump, who last fall told Secretary of State Rex Tillerson he was wasting his timeŽ trying to talk with the North, tweeted Tuesday that possible progressŽ had been made in North Koreas capital and that all sides were making serious efforts. He added: May be false hope, but the U.S. is ready to go hard in either direction!ŽLater, in an Oval Office photo session with Swed-ish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, Trump said the North Koreans seem to be acting positively,Ž but that the prospects will be clearer when diplomacy moves to the next stage.We have come cer-tainly a long way, at least rhetorically, with North Korea,Ž Trump said. Of the possibility for peace-fully resolving the nations deep differences, he said: Itd be a great thing for the world, would be a great for North Korea, it would be a great thing for the peninsula. But well see what happens.ŽIn Chungs account, Kim indicated he would not need to keep nuclear weapons if military threats against North Korea were removed and his nation received a cred-ible security guarantee.

[ANDREW HARNIK/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Trump welcomes Norths nuclear concessions with hope, skepticism By John RabyThe Associated PressCHARLESTON, W.Va. „ West Virginias strik-ing teachers cheered, sang and wept joyfully Tuesday as lawmakers acted to end a nine-day classroom walk-out, ceding them 5 percent pay hikes that are also being extended to all state workers.A huge crowd of teachers packing the Capitol jumped up and down, chanted We love our kids!Ž and sang John Denvers Take Me Home, Country Roads.Ž The settlement came on the ninth day of a crippling strike that had idled hundreds of thousands of students, forced parents to scramble for child care and cast a spotlight on govern-ment dysfunction in one of the poorest states in the nation.State schools Superintendent Steve Paine said in a statement he was pleased that our students, teachers and ser-vice personnel will return to schoolŽ on Wednesday.We know that the end is in sight,Ž said Dale Lee, president of the West Virginia Education Association. We know that theyre going to be relieved to do what they love best, and thats taking care of the kids and educating the kids of West Virginia.ŽThe West Virginia teachers, some of the low-est-paid in the country, had gone without a salary increase for four years. They appeared to have strong public backing throughout their walkout.We overcame, we overcame!Ž exclaimed one teacher, Danielle Harris, calling it a victory for students as well. It shows them how democ-racy is supposed to work, that you dont just bow down and lay down for anybody. They got the best lesson that they could ever have even though they were out of school.ŽTuesday marked the ninth day of canceled classes for the school systems 277,000 students and 35,000 employees.Teachers walked off the job Feb. 22, balking at an initial bill signed by Gov. Jim Justice to bump up their pay 2 percent in the first year as they also complained about rising health insurance costs.Justice responded last week with an offer to raise teacher pay 5 percent „ a proposal the state House approved swiftly but that senators werent so eager to sign off on. Instead the Senate countered with an offer of 4 percent on Satur-day, prompting leaders of all three unions represent-ing the states teachers to announce the walkout was being extended.After a six-member conference committee agreed Tuesday to the new proposal, the House of Delegates subsequently passed 5 percent raises for teachers, school service personnel and state troop-ers on a 99-0 vote. The Senate followed, voting 34-0. W.Va. teachers cheer pay hike deal to end walkoutTeachers and school personnel celebrate Tuesday at the capitol in Charleston, W.Va., after the state Senate app roved a bill to increase state employee pay by 5 percent.

I thought Id have some fun; The dealer hit sixteen with a five... Just enough to make twenty one.Ž BlackjackŽ as performed by Ray Charles Astute retiree investors might want to reconsider the time-honored, classic ‡ portfolio investment strategy. Since 2000, bonds have been anticorrelated with stocks, meaning that bonds went up when stocks went down. Investors owned bonds for income and also because they hedged a stock-laden portfolio. But now, bond yields appear to be moving higher and the anti-correlation relationship has been skewed. In fact, bonds might be becoming noncorrelated (meaning theyve lost any relationship with stock movements) and in many cases have become positively correlated with stocks. This means that stocks and bonds can go up and down together. Thats not a problem when stock prices are rising, but should markets take a downturn, stocks and bonds that are positively correlated can fall simultaneously. In this environment, bonds no longer might serve as a hedge against portfolio loss. If you were completely invested in stocks from late 2007 to early 2009, you lost more than half your money (the S&P 500 lost more than 56 percent peak-to-trough), so holding bonds (which gained value over that time frame) would have mitigated losses. In a 60 percent S&P 500 index/40 percent aggregate bond index portfolio, an investor would have lost onethird instead of more than one-half of his assets from October 2007 until the end of the downturn in March 2009. However painful, losing a third beats losing more than half, so bonds served as an effective portfolio hedge at the height of the Great Recession. Bonds still can be a serviceable portfolio component, especially if investors own individual bonds and keep the duration on them extremely short. Buying the best quality, high-yield corporate bonds available, ones that mature within two to three years, allows you to enjoy some yield while maintaining maximum portfolio flexibility. Investors might consider buying the shortterm bonds of companies whose stocks they might own in a risk-on environment and where the investor is first in line to get paid on the maturity ladder. Its unlikely there will be major credit losses with a diversified basket of highly rated high-yield bonds in the next two to 24 months. If an investor is getting more than 4 percent on average on these bonds, hes probably doing well. If he steps up the yield to the 5-6 percent range for that under-24 month maturity range, hes likely taking a large degree of credit risk and the risk-adjusted marginal return might be unwise. Preferred stocks also are one of the few places to get significant, predictable yield in todays market. Some can generate enough meaningful income to balance the interest rate risk that an investor might be assuming. Margaret R.

News Herald staff reportIN BRIEFA welder fabricates a steel structure at an iron works facility Monday in Ottawa, Ontario. [SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS VIA AP] By Paul WisemanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration has chosen an odd time to offer special protection to the U.S. steel industry.As President Donald Trump prepares to impose a 25 percent tax on imported steel, Americas steelmakers are actually faring pretty well: The U.S. steel industry last year earned more than $2.8 billion, up from $714 million in 2016 and a loss in 2015, according to the Commerce Department. And the industry added more than 8,000 jobs between January 2017 and January 2018.Even before Trump men-tioned the tariff last Thursday, the price of the benchmark U.S.-made hot-rolled steel had reached the highest level since May 2011, according to S&P Global Platts. The price surged even higher on the tariff news.We finished 2017 in a good position. We look forward to 2018,Ž U.S. Steel CEO David Burritt told industry analysts Feb. 1, according to a transcript at the website Seeking Alpha. He continued: Were seeing increased demand from our customers and have rescheduled some projects to ensure that we can make enough steel to support our customers needs.ŽStill, the steel companies complain theyre victims of unfair foreign competition.The industry isnt doing as bad as their press releases say it is,Ž says steel analyst Charles Bradford, president of Bradford Research. Any time world economic growth is over 3 percent, the steel industry usually does OK.Ž The International Monetary Fund says the global economy grew 3.7 percent last year and expects it to grow 3.9 percent in 2018. The U.S. economy grew 2.3 percent last year, an improve-ment on 1.5 percent growth in 2016. Also raising demand for steel: Florida and Texas are rebuilding after last years ruinous hurricanes.Ned Hill, a professor at Ohio State Universitys John Glenn College of Public Affairs who studies economic develop-ment, says that after decades of cost-cutting and restructuring, American steel is a vastly improved industry. It seems to me that theyve established a competitive equilibrium.ŽIn the 1980s, American steelmakers needed 10.1 man-hours to produce a ton of steel; now they need 1.5 man-hours, says Joe Innace of S&P Global Platts. Most American steel is now made at super-efficient mini mills, which use electric arc furnaces to turn scrap metal into steel. (Traditional integrated steel mills make steel from scratch, feeding iron ore and coking coal into blast fur-naces.) Some mini-mills need just 0.5 man-hours to produce a ton of steel, Innace says.Increased productivity means todays steel mills dont need as many workers. Steel industry employment peaked at 650,000 in 1953. By the start of this year, U.S. steelmakers employed just 143,000.The industry definitely faces long-term problems. Massive overproduction by China has flooded world mar-kets with steel and kept world prices lower than they would have been. Some countries subsidize their steel producers and allow them to sell steel at unfairly low prices.But the United States has already aggressively defended U.S. steel producers. As of mid-2017, the government was imposing 149 different restrictions on steel imports. Steel of a dealAs Trump weighs tari US steelmakers enjoy rising pro t

A “ re has been lit and all the noise from NRA and NRA-loving GOP will do nothing to stem their determination. Both of our major political parties need younger leadership. Maybe they would be able to work together for the public good, unlike today. Trump wants a trade war with our allies. Thats a “ ght the rest of the world will win against the USA.SQUALL LINE ANOTHER VIEWThere is a specter haunting the news business: the digital ad duopoly of Facebook and Google. Together, those two mega corporations alone control nearly three-quarters of all digital advertising spending in the United States. And the trends are only getting worse: 83 percent of digital ad revenue growth is now going to the two behemoths. The rest of the Internet is increasingly getting crumbs, in other words. Thats been a huge problem for newspaper readers. Heres why: Print newspaper circulation has fallen in recent years, as people have increasingly gone online to get their news. In tandem, print advertising revenue has fallen „ classified ads, in particular. The idea back in more optimistic times was that newspapers could make up their losses on the print side by selling online advertising. But that has proved a challenge „ with Facebook and Google utterly dominating that business, in part by repackaging and monetizing our work. As a result, newsrooms have shrunk and with them the ability to dig out news. And thats a big problem for those of us who care about building and maintaining an informed, educated citizenry. Reporting is an arduous undertaking, whether it takes place in the mountains of Afghanistan, or behind a desk, spending hours going through obscure public records. But, finally, we are happy to note some encouraging news: Congressman David Cicilline of Rhode Island is planning to introduce a bill in Congress that, in the words of the News Media Alliance (a trade group representing almost 2,000 news organizations) would amend anti-trust laws to incorporate a safe harbor, allowing news publishers to negotiate with the big tech platforms, and therefore flowing needed ad dollars back to the deserving parties, the news publishers.Ž Mr. Cicilline is the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee. His support matters. (And, he could be in line to chair the panel if the Democrats were to win the House of Representatives this fall.) The congressmans idea makes strong sense. In reality, newspapers are seldom directly competing against one another these days. Newspapers should be able to band together and negotiate better deals with the tech giants. At a minimum, they must be able to earn a percentage of the ad dollars their reporting helps to generate. Facebook and Google cannot feast on the entirety of the fruits of the news industrys labor. To maintain our democratic, rule-based system of government, there simply must be a robust and independent press. Otherwise our system of government cannot function. Imagine a world where politicians could commit corruption with impunity; where literally made up fake newsŽ replaced actual information; where we would have no idea what our elected officials were doing in our name and with our tax dollars. Thats the dystopian future we might face. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Providence (R.I.) Journal, a News Herald sister paper with Gatehouse MediaStanding up for traditional news mediaThe United States under President Trump has been retreating from leadership roles in Asia and Europe. Closer to home, his hot rhetoric about trade with Mexico and Canada is propelling our neighbors to start pulling away. Two truths here: One is that the benefits of the North American Free Trade Agreement(NAFTA)„ a threecountry deal „ have flowed in all directions. The other is that Mexico doesnt need us as much as it did. And the same may be said of Canada. We will not be pushed into accepting any old deal,Ž Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said r ecently, and no deal might very well be better for Canada than a bad deal.Ž That the U.S. hasnt ditched NAFTA as candidate Trump threatened is the smallest of concessions. Simply calling trade deals a rape of our countryŽ is enough to get the chess pieces moving, and not to Americas advantage. Mexico and Canada have been looking elsewhere for economic relationships, and theyre finding them. Both have signed on to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the huge trade pact that Trump pulled the U.S. out of. Though Trump says hes trying to protect us against China, he failed to recognize that TPP was created to help us compete against China, which is not a member. Canada is now in talks to join the Pacific Alliance „ a trade bloc including Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. The United States remains a mere observer. The world economy has changed since the 1990s, and no amount of presidential bluster changes the reality that America has less leverage than it used to. Mexico and Canada dont have to swallow the unreasonable demands „ some say poison pillsŽ „ that the Trump administration has introduced into the NAFTA talks. They are overplaying their hand,Ž former Mexican trade negotiator Antonio Ortiz-Mena said. Mexico does have other options. They may not be ideal, but theyre options that werent available 25 years ago.Ž Most traditional economists dont obsess over trade deficits, but people who do should know this: The United States ran a $12.5 billion trade surplus with Canada in goods and services in 2016. Mexico is the secondlargest foreign market for U.S. goods. (Canada is the first.) It is the largest market for U.S. corn. But Trumps continual bashing of NAFTA has forced Mexicans to play defense. Knowing the game could end in higher tariffs for U.S. farm products, they are engaging with more reliable suppliers. Thus, Mexico last year imported 10 times more corn from Brazil than the year before. Its expected to buy still more Brazilian corn in 2018. Clearly, damage already hasbeen done to U.S. interests. Even if this or a future administration turns friendlier toward trade, new supply networks will have been established, and American producers will have to win back the business. Canadaalso has been looking elsewhere. It completed a Canada-European Union trade deal over a year ago. Canadian farmers see Americas retreat from TPP as an advantage and are expanding exports to Asia. And if NAFTA fell apart, the winner would not be the U.S ., Mexico or Canada. It would be China. Russia, meanwhile, would quietly smile at the further erosion of U.S. influence „ and in Americans own backyard, too.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, March 7, 2018 A13By David CraryThe Associated PressThanks to the vast reach of social media and the prevalence of sexual misconduct in virtually every society, the #MeToo movement has proven itself a genuinely global phenomenon. Yet its impact varies widely from country to country, from potentially momen-tous to inconsequential.No other nation has experienced anything close to the developments in the United States, the movements birthplace, where scores of promi-nent men „ among them politicians, media stars and movie moguls „ have lost jobs and reputations after facing sexual mis-conduct allegations.As the global womens movement prepares for International Womens Day on Thursday, its clear the record elsewhere is mixed.In Western Europe, some VIPs have been discredited and some new anti-harassment laws are in the works. Worldwide, the fallout includes backlashes against women who speak out, divisions within feminist ranks and minimal repercussions for accused harassers. And in many countries, the U.S. included, the movement has consisted primarily of well-educated profes-sionals, largely leaving out working-class and poor women. Some skeptics have coined the hashtag #WeFew. In some countries where the movement hasnt caught fire, analysts have suggested that resistance to American cultural trends is among the factors.I wish it hadnt started in the U.S.,Ž said Anne Marie Goetz, a professor of global affairs at New York University and a former United Nations adviser on womens issues.The fastest way to dis-credit any womens rights struggle is to say it comes from somewhere else,Ž Goetz said. Thats been a longstanding putdown of feminist movements all around the world.ŽIn China, discussion of #MeToo has sometimes been censored on social media and branded as a destabilizing foreign movement. To thwart the censors, social media users have made creative use of hashtags such as #Rice-Bunny „ a phrase which in China is pronounced me too.ŽThe hashtags, and womens accounts of harassment, proliferated in January after Luo Xixi, an academic now based in the U.S., accused a renowned Beijing-based professor of sexual misconduct when she was a graduate student. Other women lodged similar allegations, and the professor was fired. But questions linger as to whether a feminist move-ment can gain greater clout in the face of government resistance.In India, sexual miscon-duct allegations against more than 60 academics sparked divisions among feminists. A crowdsourced list of alleged harassers was posted on Facebook by a U.S.-based law student, with contributions from students in India. But the list contained few details about the allegations or accusers, and was criticized by some women as unfair.India passed a law in 2013 to combat workplace sexual harassment, but gender-equality activist Sudarshana Kundu said many women remain hesi-tant to speak up.There is culture of silencing that is prevalent,Ž she said by email. Organi-zations are worried about their credibility and coun-sel their women employees to not report instances and instead seek conciliation.Ž #MeToo nds mixed reception outside USA woman talks during a debate as part of a demonstration to support the wave of testimonies denouncing cases of sexual harassment across the country under the #MeToo movement, Oct. 29 in Lyon, France.

Prosecutors opened their case Tuesday by telling jurors that on March 7, 2014, Moran shot 50-year-old Melissa Moran in the head at their Southport home and then attempted to cover up the slay-ing. However, Philip Morans defense attorney said that the state of Morans home and his actions actually show a man suffering from mental illness.Moran faces life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder with a firearm.Jurors saw pictures Tuesday of Melissa Moran propped against the back door of their home with blood smeared on the doors white paint. A golden retriever, her favorite pet, lay stabbed to death beside her. Melissa Moran died from what prose-cutor Bob Sombathy described as a devastating gunshot woundŽ to the right side of her forehead.The barrel of this rifle was no more than one to two feet away from her face,Ž Sombathy told the jury. ƒ There were other wounds, and they were wounds all up and down her thigh and legs. ƒ She was dead when those wounds occurred and they were consistentwith being dragged around on the floor.ŽAs Sombathy walked the jury backward along a blood trail from Melissa Morans body to the couples bedroom, he pointed out live ammo. In mounds of trash, Sombathy highlighted blood-soaked rags and a pair of blood-stained sneakers thrown in the trash to further his case that Philip Moran tried to hide evidence of the crime.It wasnt a good job, but it definitely was an effort to cover up the crime scene,Ž Sombathy said.However, defense attorney Lisa Anderson told jurors that the prosecution would leave an incomplete picture.

It began as a way to honor the fishing community that founded Panama City, but over time the projectgrew to be a plan for a U.S. Coast Guard-approved nautical aid.Based on studies commis-sioned by the nonprofit, at least 50,000 people would have come to the lighthouse each year.Sabiston said she believes the numberof visitors likely would have been higher as otherFlorida lighthouses draw more than 200,0000 visitors annually andtheirdesigns called for it to be fully handicap accessible, which would have further added to the appeal. She also felt it would have helped capture some of the traffic from transient boat-ers, who typically visit other marinas.Since the project started, she said, she has occasion-ally received calls from travel agents asking if the light-house had been built.It would have opened up a whole new avenue of potential tourists and lured them downtown,Ž she said.

He harbored the grudge to the point wherehe put her initials into his feasibility studies he submitted to the city on Feb. 15, labeling her as someone he did not want to work with.Sabiston also said she did not feel comfortableŽ working with him in her letter to the city announcing the Lighthouse groups intent to dissolve on Feb. 13.While the city has since terminated its agreement with Sonnenblick, Sabis-ton said she does not regret the decision.The process takes so long,Ž she said, noting the lighthouse had been part of previously proposed marina plans as well.Group members are going through their database to make sure they have the right addresses for peoplebefore mailing out checks.Its very painful,Ž she said. A lot of people were looking to us.ŽIf there is another organization interested in picking up the project, Sabiston said she would be willing to share information.

He had arrived on the scene after a deputy discovered Melissa Morans body on the back porch and heard a man walking around inside the home and shouting. Once Philip Moran was out of the house, McKeithen said Moran began making strange statements and was screaming in excrutiating painŽ that he couldnt walk.Ive seen people under the influence of drugs.

Among the ramblings, Moran allegedly told officers I cant believe I shot my wife,Ž officials said.Bonnie Miller, Melissa Morans cousin, told jurors that she had known the couple most of her life and they never argued in front of her. She said she would regularly run errands for them because of their reclusive nature. The Morans were messy people, Miller said, and her cousin called her about once or twice a week for at least four years before the killing to clean their house.I knew it needed it,Ž Miller told the jury. That house always needed cleaning.Ž TRIALFrom Page B1 By Jennie McKeon315-4434 | @jenniemnwfdn jmckeon@nwfdailynews.comDESTIN „ DJ Cotrell and friends were planning to spend their Saturday trolling for fish.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, March 7, 2018 B3 The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Nursing homes will be required to have generators and 72-hour fuel supplies onsite by July 1, under a rule issued by Gov. Rick Scotts administration and approved Monday by the Legislature.The House unanimously approved a measure (HB 7099) that ratified the rule, and the Senate followed suit later in the day.The chambers still differ, though, on whether to impose similar backup power mandates on assisted living facilities, which were included in a dif-ferent rule. Ratifying the pair of rules has been a top priority for Scotts administration during the 2018 legislative session.Our position has not changed „ assisted living facil-ities need to be included,Ž said Lauren Schenone, a spokeswoman for the governor, adding that we are continuing to work with the Florida Legislature to make sure this gets done.ŽThe rule requires nursing homes to have backup power capability and adequate fuel supplies to maintain safety sys-tems and equipment needed to maintain indoor air temperatures for 96 hours after a loss of electricity. According to the state, the rule will increase costs by more than $121 million in the next five years.The Agency for Health Care Administration issued the rule after earlier imposing emer-gency rules that drew concerns from health-care facilities. The rules followed the deaths of residents of The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Broward County after Hurri-cane Irma. The storm knocked out the nursing homes air-conditioning system, which led to sweltering conditions.The emergency rules were challenged by a trio of longterm care associations and were subsequently invalidated by a state administrative law judge. The state appealed the deci-sion and continued to enforce the emergency rules, and Schenone said, hundredsŽ of nursing homes and ALFs are complying.The permanent rule ratified Monday came after negotiations between the Scott administration and long-term care facilities. The permanent rule does not require generators to be installed, which opens the possibility of por-table units.Steve Bahmer, president and CEO of the industry group LeadingAge Florida, said the nursing-home rule puts in place what his association and others had worked on with the Scott administration and Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Justin Senior since Hurricane Irma. Bahmer, whose association successfully challenged the emergency rules, said he was pleased with the legislative ratification.It achieves the goal we have pursued since last fall „ help-ing to ensure that seniors are safe during and after an emer-gency, while providing the flexibility that is necessary for it to be effective in a state as large as Florida,Ž Bahmer wrote in an email.Bahmer, whose association also represents assisted living facilities, said he hopes the House has a change of heart about ratifying the ALF rule.House Health & Human Services Chairman Travis Cummings, R-Fleming Island, repeatedly has said he has con-cerns with ratifying the ALF rule because of the costs and said his concerns were shared by others.Ž The backup generator man-date is expected to increase regulatory costs for about 3,000 assisted living facilities by about $243 million during the next five years.To abate the Houses concerns with the regulatory increases for ALFs, the Senate during budget negotiations suggested creating a program that would allow facilities to get upward of $1,000 from the state to help offset the costs.With the annual legislative session scheduled to end Friday, long-term care provid-ers remained hopeful Monday that the House will agree to ratify the ALF rule.LeadingAge Floridas Bahmer said the ALF rule offers clarity for providers, which is important in terms of helping ensure that the rule can be consistently imple-mented across the state.ŽHouse, Senate sign o on nursing home generators

** B6 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Christine SextonThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Firefighters, police officers and EMTs who cannot work because of job-related post-traumatic stress disorder could qualify for expanded benefits under a bill heading to Gov. Rick Scott.The House unanimously approved the measure (SB 376) Monday, two days after the Senate passed it. Scott is expected to sign the bill, spearheaded by Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, and Rep. Matt Willhite, D-Wellington. Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis of Panama City also was a strong proponent of the bill.Matt Puckett, execu-tive director of the Florida Police Benevolent Asso-ciation, said the changes in the bill can go a long way toward helping first responders and predicted that it would save lives.In Florida, injured workers are prevented from receiving workers compensation insurance benefits„ either medical benefits or lost wages„ for mental or nervous injuries not accompanied by physical injuries.The law was changed in 2007, though, to allow first responders to obtain medical benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder without having accompa-nying physical injuries. However, they still are precluded from obtaining lost wages for post-trau-matic stress disorder.The bill would change that if police officers, firefighters, emergency-medical technicians and paramedics meet certain criteria.First responders who have witnessed the death of a minor or witnessed a death that involved grievous bodily harm of a nature that shocks the conscienceŽ could file workers compensation claims for lost wages. The first responders would be required to show by clear and convincing evidence that the events were the source of the PTSD.The bill also would require cities, counties and other entities that employ first responders to provide educational training related to mental health awareness, prevention, mitigation and treatment.PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events. Symptoms generally begin within the first three months after the trauma, although there can be delays of months or even years before the criteria for the diagnosis are met, according to a staff analysis of the bill.Before the House voted to pass the bill Monday, Rep. Erin Grall shared a suicide letter written by an Indian River County fire-rescue chief and posted on Facebook.Twenty-seven years of deaths and babies dying in your hands is a memory that you will never get rid of. It haunted me daily until now. My love to my crews be safe take care. I love you all,Ž Grall read through tears, noting that the chief was her husbands cousin and brother-like figure.Until something like this happens so close, you dont realize the defi-ciencies in the system,Ž Grall said, discussing how first responders can be impaired by the work they do.Puckett said the bill takes a giant stepŽ in helping first responders address PTSD associated with their jobs.Puckett hopes the training and education will make family members and co-workers more aware about the warning signs of PTSD and can encourage treatment to prevent the disorder from rising to the level that it prevents first responders from being able to work.Are we identifying folks with this? Are family members, co-workers able to identify that this person is exhibiting these PTSD signs, and are we setting it up to where people are actually will-ing to admit it?Ž Puckett said. Maybe with this legislation people will start seeking treatment sooner.Ž A 2015 survey of 4,000 first responders found that 6.6 percent had attempted suicide, which is more than 10 times the rate in the general population.Patronis, who supported the bill through the process, issued a statement saying he was proud that Florida changed the law.First responders show up for us every day, without hesitation or questioning our politics, and today Florida showed up for them,Ž said Patronis, whose job includes serving as state fire marshal.Patronis also took a shot at the Florida League of Cities in the statement, saying to those who refused to support this measure from the begin-ning: we got this done without you.ŽThe Florida League of Cities initially opposed the legislation, contend-ing it was too broadly written and could increase insurance costs for cities that employ police and firefighters. The League of Cities, however, dropped its opposition to the bill, pointing last week to an amendment that eased its concerns.PTSD bene ts bill going to ScottPatronis By Christine SextonThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ The legal dramas that have swirled around Floridas trauma system in recent years would be settled under a bill that revamps rules and regulations and recognizes trauma centers at some HCA Healthcare facilities across the state.The Senate on Tuesday voted unanimously to pass the bill (HB 1165), one day after the House voted 110-0 to approve it. Rep. Jay Trumbull, R-Panama City, was one of the spon-sors of the bill.The bill now heads to Gov. Rick Scott, who is expected to sign it into law. Senate Health Policy Chairwoman Dana Young, a Tampa Republican who started meeting with various hospital represen-tatives last summer on the trauma issue, said the bill ends years of legal wran-gling and adds provisions aimed at preventing the litigation from occurring again.Young told The News Service of Florida there were hours and hours of meetingsŽ with representatives of various hospitals, including Jackson Memorial in Miami-Dade County, HCA and safety netŽ facilities.I asked them,Ž Young said, recalling the meet-ings, how much do they really want to get this done?ŽThe Legislature for the past several years has grappled with the trauma system and whether to continue with current regulations or to allow a more competitive environment that would increase the number of trauma facilities in the state.The debate has come after HCA moved to open several trauma centers, which drew legal challenges from hospitals that have long operated trauma facilities.Under current law and regulations, Florida has a statewide cap of 44 trauma centers, with facilities allocated to 19 trauma service areas.Ž It also includes different classifications of trauma centers based, in part, on levels of care they provide.Supporters of the longstanding limits on trauma centers have con-tended that the facilities are expensive to operate and require highly trained doctors and staff members. But HCA and its backers say opening more trauma centers help improve access to care for severely injured patients.The bill would change the number of traumaservice areas from 19 to 18 and make clear that no service area could have more than a total of five Level I, Level II, Level II/pediatric, and standalone pediatric trauma centers. A trauma service area could not have more than one stand-alone pediatric trauma center.The bill would require the Florida Department of Health by Oct. 1 to establish an 11-member Florida Trauma System Advisory Council. The group would be required to meet no later than Jan. 5 and quarterly thereafter.Moreover, the bill would put into statutes a new need formulaŽ for the approval of trauma centers. Under the new formula, it will be difficult to produce new trauma centers any time soon, said Mark Delegal, general counsel for the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida, which includes public, teaching and childrens hospitals. Delegal said the bill will ensure a quality trauma system for the foreseeable future and bring to an end years of litigation.Importantly, the bill recreates a trauma advi-sory council with leading experts to maintain and improve trauma care in Florida,Ž he said. The bill grandfathersŽ in three HCA trauma centers: Kendall Regional Medical Centers Level I trauma center, which allows it to operate a pediatric trauma center; Orange Park Medical Centers Level II trauma center; and Aventura Hospital & Medical Centers level II trauma center.A fourth HCA facility, Northside Hospital in St. Petersburg, would be prevented from moving ahead with a trauma center.The agreement also allows Jackson South in Miami to open a trauma center.Bill could end trauma system battlesBay Medical Center Sacred Heart runs a Level III Trauma Center, one of 44 trauma centers in Florida.

Some adversity is to be expected over the course of a season, such as injuries and heartbreaking losses, or even suspensions in some cases. Others, such as having your second-leading scorer get shot during the middle of your conference season, are a bit more difficult to take in stride.Such has been the case for No. 2 Gulf Coast, which had to play the last five games of the regular season without sophomore guard Kionna Jeter, who was the victim of a shooting while at home in Spartanburg, S.C., visiting family on Feb. 3. Jeter was hit with two shots and suffered a broken shoulder, though her life was never in jeopardy and she is expected to make a full recovery. That recovery is expected to take approximately three months, according to Jeter, which means her season is over, and if the Lady Commodores are going to make a run at a third straight national title, theyll have to do it without the services of a player who was averaging 19.8 points per game this season, including 20.1 in Panhandle Confer-ence play.The prospect of replacing such a productive player seems more challenging on paper than it has appeared to be in reality for the Lady Commodores, who have gone 5-0 without Jeter with an average margin of victory of 19 points per game.

Tigers coach Brent Zessin thought that his ballclub might make a run when Denzel Washington scored with 6:45 remaining in the fourth quarter to get Blount-stown within 50-46.But a team that had fed off its defensive intensity all season was unable to get enough key stops down the stretch and the Wildcats prevailed.That was pretty much it; they had two great play-ers and they got the shots,Ž Zessin said. Our team played great, but those guys are pretty good.ŽWilson was 10-14 from Blountstown falls shortWildwoods Darion Wilson goes up for a shot over Blountstowns Jamal Howard and Kevon Godwin during the FHSAA 1A Boys State Basketball Championship game.

** C2 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Jenna FryerThe Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Kevin Harvick once lay in wait for Greg Biffle on the pit road wall at Bristol Motor Speedway. Harvick was angry „ he always seemed to be angry in the early days of his NASCAR career „ and he was going to make sure Biffle knew it the moment the race was over. How did Harvick send his message? He literally hurdled over Biffles car into a scrum and lunged at Biffles throat. The Biffle incident back in 2002 would most certainly be on Harvicks highlight reel. In his first two years in Cup, Harvick became the first driver to be parkedŽ by NASCAR for aggressive driving and he once tried to fight Ricky Rudd, usually considered a losing proposition. Harvicks nickname has always been HappyŽ and he was anything but in those early days. He said after the 2002 parking „ for intentionally wrecking Coy Gibbs in a Truck Series race at Martinsville and generally being a thorn in NASCARs side „ that it was the wakeup call the 25-year-old needed. I havent been racing since I was 5 years old and made it this far in my career to throw it all away now,Ž Harvick said then. Having to miss the race in Martinsville definitely got my attention.Ž OK, so it hasnt been exactly smooth sailing since that wakeup call. But here Harvick is now, 100 NASCAR national wins later, and one of the most consistent drivers of his era. Harvick doesnt have the statistics to show just how exceptional a race car driver he is in part because he came along at the same time as another Californian. Jimmie Johnson, with a laid-back Southern California persona, debuted a year after Harvick and has collected seven championships along the way. Harvick has so far managed just one championship. But hes a two-time Daytona 500 winner, a two-time Coca-Cola 600 winner, a Southern 500 winner and a Brickyard 400 winner. Thats a Hall of Fame career right there, and one many might not have seen coming when he was thrust into a miserable situation at what should have been the best time of his life. Harvick was on schedule to drive a Cup car for Richard Childress in 2002 but when Dale Earnhardt was killed on the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500, that plan was scrapped. Harvick got Earnhardts ride the next week, went forward with his scheduled Las Vegas wedding the week after that and won his first Cup race the week after that. It was a whirlwind three weeks for the 24-year-old from Bakersfield, California, and when he had to time to take a breath, there was a lot going on.Harvick takes a bumpy road to 100 victoriesKevin Harvick hoists the trophy with his team after winning a NASCAR Cup series auto race Sunday in Las Vegas. [ISAAC BREKKEN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressPALM HARBOR, Fla.Whatever was said between Jack Nicklaus and USGA chief executive Mike Davis didnt show up in the annual report on driving distance. Nicklaus has said for nearly half his life that the ball goes too far, an opinion based more on the 415 golf courses his company has designed than the record 18 major championships he won. He believes the culprit is the ball, not the clubs used to hit it or the players swinging them. Two weeks ago, Nicklaus sounded an alarm that change might be on the way. I had dinner with Mike Davis, and Mike said, Were getting there. Were going to get there,Ž Nicklaus said at the Honda Classic. Nicklaus said he figured that would mean another 10 years of research, but that Davis told him the USGA was getting closer to agreements with the R&A to do something and be able to help.Ž After two weeks of anticipation, the governing bodies delivered data that showed an average gain of 3 yards across seven tours worldwide in 2017, enough of a spike in one year for them to describe it as unusual and concerning,Ž and one that requires closer inspection. More research. The PGA Tour, the only tour with laser technology to measure every shot, had an increase of 1.9 yards. Throw out the eight different courses used in 2017 „ expansive Erin Hills instead of Oakmont, Quail Hollow instead of soggy Baltusrol „ and the increase was a half-yard. What does it all mean? That nothing has changed when it comes to advancements in golf, and the resistance primarily from architectural circles. Its a conflict nearly as old as the Royal & Ancient game. The debate over golf balls in particular surfaced in the mid-1850s when Allan Robertson was making the featherie and had a falling out with his apprentice, Old Tom Morris, when he switched over to the gutta percha. Tiger Woods used a replica of the gutta percha during a practice round at St. Andrews before the 2000 British Open. He drove his Nike golf ball to the edge of the ninth green. He hit driver and a 5-iron just over the green with the guttie. One more anecdote from St. Andrews: The R&A was so concerned about how far players were hitting the modern golf ball that it lengthened the Old Course, along with adding pot bunkers, to protect against low scores. That was the Haskell golf ball, which replaced the gutta percha. The year was 1905. Its not like were making the game too easy,Ž said Dustin Johnson, described by his peers as an athletic freak. Because Ive never felt the game was easy.ŽThe driving distance report that didnt go very farPhil Mickelson tees off on the 2nd hole during the “ nal round of the Mexico Championship on Sunday at Chapultepec Golf Club in Mexico City.

[PHOTO BY ERNST PETERS/THE LEDGER] The News Herald | Wednesday, March 7, 2018 C3 FINALFrom Page C1 five contests, only a 69-65 road victory over Chipola in a meaningless regular season finale was decided by fewer than 16 points. Its an impressive response to a pretty big bit of adver-sity for Gulf Coast, though for coach Roonie Scovel, it fits with how her players have handled other set-backs this season.Its kind of amazing,Ž she said. We didnt have (freshman post player) Astou (Gaye) to start the season, we lost Shayla (Bennett) for four weeks with the surgery, and then of course we lose Kionna at conference time. Weve had some nagging things, but I guess todays kids are just resilient. They just move on to the next game and play. Im real impressed that they didnt fold and didnt lose their confidence. It was the next woman up and some of those next women played very well during that stretch.ŽThe woman who stepped up the most in the immediate aftermath of losing Jeter was 5-foot-6 sophomore guard Janesha Green, who scored 24, 11, and 19 points in the ensuing three games after scoring just 16 points total in her previous seven Panhandle Conference outings. Green is averaging 12.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game while shooting 55.8 percent from the field and a whopping 68.8 percent from the 3-point line in the five games since Jeter went out.Green wasnt exactly the most likely candidate to take on a bigger scoring burden after posting just 2 points per game as a freshman, but she said she believed she was capable of producing at a higher level in a way she didnt last season.(Jeter) was a big scorer for us, and coach Scovel was just like, somebody has got to step up, so I stepped up and tried to take that spot,Ž she said. It feels pretty good. Its just confidence, basically. My confidence wasnt that good last year.ŽGulf Coast also got big performances from 5-10 French freshman Din Dian, who scored 14 points and hit 4 of 5 threes in a win over Tallahassee and added a season-high 21 points on 4 of 6 from the 3-point line in a vic-tory over Pensacola State. Dian, who had previously scored just two points in limited action in six conference games, averaged 8.4 points on 55.6 percent shooting from the field and 52.9 percent from the 3-point line in her last five outings.The elevated play of her compatriot, Gaye, has also been a big factor for the Lady Commodores. The 6-2 post player struggled to get going this season as she recovered from an off-season injury, but over the past seven games she has shown flashes of the talent that made her a coveted international recruit, averaging 11.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 53.7 percent from the field and 56.3 percent from the 3-point line.Freshman post player Alexus Dye also had a strong finish to the con-ference season, averaging 10 points on 62.8 percent shooting from the field in her final six league games.Weve just had differ-ent people step up,Ž Scovel said. Jhileiya Dunlap has come on and had some big games. Alexus had a great game. Weve just had different people step up and do some things for us. (Green and Dian) have had some good games. Its been a little inconsistent, but when weve needed it from them, weve got it. I hope that will continue as we move forward and we can get something from them when we need it.Ž While Bennett has con-tinued her consistent ways with 20.8 points per game over the past five, the 6-2 Dunlap, who will accompany Bennett to the University of North Carolina next season, has picked up her offense dramatically. After aver-aging just 8.4 points through her first seven Panhandle games, she is putting in 17.4 points per game in her last five out-ings on 55.9 percent from the field, while adding 8.8 rebounds, two assists, and three blocked shots per game as the anchor of the GC defense.Dunlap said it took her a couple of days just to process the news of Jeter being shot, but it was shortly after that when she and her teammates took it upon themselves to make sure everyone knew that the Lady Commo-dores werent going away.When everybody started hearing that (Jeter) was out, thats when everybody thought, oh, Gulf Coast is going down and not going anywhere this year,Ž she said. But we switched it around. When we lost her, we knew we would have to work 10 times harder.ŽThe results have been both impressive and unexpected, as the Lady Commodores nearly dou-bled their scoring margin since losing their second-best scorer. Scovel attributed it to a faster pace and a ratcheted up defense that has limited opponents to just 34 per-cent shooting over the past five games.We just emphasized that we have to keep doing the things that we do,Ž she said. I think our transition is a little better. Janesha is probably the quickest player on our team and shes strong, so our running game got a little more consistent. Defensively, I think our kids realized that when you lose 20 points, your defense is going to have to win you some ballgames if you cant make up for those lost points. But I think it has been a little bit of both. I think weve made up for the lost points, but I also think that we turned up the defense a little bit.ŽGulf Coast will try to harness the momentum it finished the regular season with and take it to Ocala for the FCSAA Region VIII Tournament on March 8-10 in search of a third consecutive state title. The Lady Commodores will almost certainly get a trip to Lubbock, Tex., regardless of how well they do in Ocala for the NJCAA Tournament and a chance for another national championship as well.However difficult the challenges that await them in the postseason, Bennett said she believes the way her team has handled the loss of one of its best players proves its tough enough to handle anything else thrown its way.I think it really shows how dedicated we are to each other and to the game,Ž she said. We dont let one bad thing bring us down as a team. We keep pushing, no matter what happens. A lot of adversity happens throughout a season, but you just have to keep play-ing through it all.Ž THRIVINGFrom Page C1his three-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts against nationally-ranked Wallace-Dothan.

RAINOUTFrom Page C1 By Stephen WhynoThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Kirk Cousins time with the Wash-ington Redskins is about to end after they chose not to use the franchise tag on the quarter-back as expected.The Redskins have agreed to acquire Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs, effec-tively pushing Cousins into free agency following a tumul-tuous six years with the club the drafted him. Cousins will be the top free agent available when the league year opens in mid-March and should have no shortage of suitors. Next week is now officially the first time since 2007 that Ill be choosing where to play football,Ž Cousins posted on Twitter. Im open to suggestions.ŽThe 29-year-old Cousins is coming off his third consecutive 4,000-yard passing season. In his time as a full-time NFL starter, he has completed 67 percent of his passes for 81 touchdowns, 36 interceptions and a 97.5 QB rating.Despite previously saying Washington could win with Cousins, coach Jay Gruden said at the scouting combine that its time for us to move onŽ and find some continuity at the position.The Redskins now seemingly have that in Smith, who will join the Redskins once the trade becomes official March 14 and has agreed to a four-year extension with $71 million guaranteed.Cousins could easily command more than that on the open market with the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals and Cleve-land Browns among the teams interested in upgrading at quarterback.After becoming the first QB in NFL history to play two consecutive seasons on the franchise tag „ making almost $44 million in the pro-cess „ Cousins is looking for long-term stability in the wake of almost-weekly questions about his future in Washing-ton persisted over the past few years. Agent Mike McCartney declined to comment on the plans of the Cousins camp in an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday.This is perhaps the first time in Cousins football career that he has been No. 1 on any list. He did not have any scholarship offers as a high school senior, was not considered a top prospect after four years at Michigan State and got picked in the fourth round in 2012 by the Redskins „ the same draft they traded up to make Robert Griffin III the No. 2 pick.Only 39-year-old Drew Brees, whos expected to resign with the New Orleans Saints, threw for more yards last season than Cousins, who is the best option available in a crop that includes Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Josh McCown. Though during the 2017 season it was reported that Cousins could set a record for QB contracts, its unclear how close he might come to the $135 million, five-year deal with $92 million guaranteed that Matthew Stafford signed with the Detroit Lions.NOTE: The Redskins re-signed safety Deshazor Everett to a multiyear deal and waived running backs Dare Ogun-bowale and Kenny Hilliard and tackle Kevin Bowen.No franchise tag for Cousins, now set to hit free agencyWashington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins scrambles during a game against the Denver Broncos on Dec. 24 in Landover, Md.

I told coach that at the beginning of the year. Thats a great feeling to have to know that I set that goal and got it. Im just going to try and come out there and play defense like that every night.ŽThe 6-foot senior from Memphis averaged 11 points per game and an SEC-best 6.1 assists per game. Hes also second in the SEC in steals at 1.9 pg. He broke UFs all-time assist record during Saturdays 80-67 win over Kentucky and is at 551 career assists and counting. No other Gator earned postseason honors. Tennessee coach Rick Barnes earned SEC coach of the year, while Tennessee sophomore forward Grant Williams was named SEC player of the year. Votes were cast by all 14 league coaches.Im a little surprised,Ž Chiozza said. We definitely got some guys on here that deserve to get some awards at the end of the year. If I could choose, I would pick all our guys. Thats why they dont let me choose the teams.ŽIn the AP (media) All-SEC selections, Chiozza was named to the second team, with Barnes coach of the year and Georgia forward Yante Maten asplayer of the year. Chiozza also was named to the USBWAs All-District IV team, which is composed of the top 10 players from Flor-ida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi.Third-seed Florida will open the SEC Tournament on Friday night in St. Louis (9:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network) against either 6 seed Arkansas, 11 seed South Carolina or 14 seed Ole Miss.Redshirt freshman forward Dontay Bassett was checked by doctors on Monday and is making progress, but has yet to be cleared from concussion protocol since suffering a a head injuryFeb. 27 at Alabama. Bassett is questionable for UFs SEC Tournament opening game.Heres complete list of the 2018 SEC Mens Basketball coaches post-season awards:First Team All-SEC Jaylen Barford, Arkansas Chris Chiozza, Florida Yante Maten, Georgia Kevin Knox, Kentucky Kassius Robertson, Missouri Chris Silva, South Carolina Grant Williams, Tennessee Tyler Davis, Texas A&M Second Team All-SEC Collin Sexton, Alabama Daryl Macon, Arkansas Bryce Brown, Auburn Jared Harper, Auburn Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kentucky Quinndary Weatherspoon, Miss.

DEAR ABBY: Years ago, my husband and I hosted a St. Patricks Day party in our apartment for friends. There was a lot of drinking going on. I had to be at work early the next morning, so I went to bed while the party went on. I awoke a short while later to one of the men attempting to rape me. He stopped and attempted an apology by saying, But you are just so pretty.Ž My husband and I graduated from high school with this person, and he is/was part of the same circle of friends. I have not told many people, but the few who do know have maintained a friendship with him, including my husband. Because of the #MeToo campaign, all the emotions have come to a head for me now. I think about this assault daily. The worst thing for me is that even though he knows about it, my husband has chosen to remain friends with him for 35 years. How can I get past this? „ CANT FORGET IN VIRGINIA DEAR CANT FORGET: I can only imagine how traumatic the assault was, and for that you have my sympathy. That your husband would be so forgiving is, frankly, shocking. It may take the help of a licensed mental health professional to put this behind you, if thats possible. I sincerely hope you will reach out to a therapist who treats posttraumatic stress as well as victims of sexual assault .DEAR ABBY: Im a 55-year-old gay man with a problem. My 22-year-old son doesnt know Im gay. It was after my divorce that I started seeing men again. I married my life partner of 13 years last year. My husband thinks I should sit my son down and tell him. I want to tell my son and be honest with him about my relationship with my husband, but my son is very religious and Im afraid this will drive a wedge between us. Plus, Im afraid of what ideas my ex would fill his head with about me. Please advise. „ CONFUSED IN THE SOUTH DEAR CONFUSED: You say your son is 22 and you have been with your now-husband for 13 years. Havent you had regular visitation with your son all this time? Doesnt he like your husband? If the answers to those questions are yes, then what makes you think he isnt already aware of your sexual orientation? On the other hand, if the answers to my questions are no, then I doubt that telling your son will drive him any further away from you than he already is. Jeanne Phillips

Mayo suggests keeping track of meals at least three days a week. „ Brandpoint Making dumplings is all about technique As a youngster, when I saw my mother cooking a big, fat hen, I knew we would have something really special for dinner. The cooked chicken often went into her great chicken salad or in her chicken and dressing. Nothing was wasted. The broth was used either for the cornbread dressing or for making dumplings. Sometimes, she cooked her homemade egg noodles in the broth. As was true with most of Mothers specialties, she didnt have a recipe for her dumplings, yet they always turned out the same. I watched as she made the dough, rolled it thin and cut it into strips that were dropped into boiling broth. It looked so easy, but I soon learned there is a technique for making good dumplings. My first mistake when trying to make dumplings was to use a regular biscuit dough. I failed to realize that dumpling dough must be firmer than that used for biscuits or it will fall apart when it hits the hot broth. There are other steps to remember when making dumplings. The broth must be at a rolling boil before dropping the strips of dough into the pot. After using all the dough, the temperature should be reduced and the pan covered until the dumplings have firmed up. After finally learning to make dumplings similar to my mothers, I decided to change the recipe slightly by adding a can of cream of chicken with herbs soup „ a simple addition that adds great flavor. Chicken Herb Dumplings€ 3 cans (14 ounces each) chicken broth € 1 can cream of chicken with herbs soup € 1 cup self-rising ” our € 3 tablespoons shortening € 1/3 cup buttermilk € teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper € 3 tablespoons butter or margarine € cup milk € 1 to 2 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken Combine broth and soup in large soup pot. Heat to a rolling boil. While broth is heating, make the dumplings. In a food processor, combine ” our, shortening and buttermilk. Process until a dough forms. Remove onto a well-” oured surface. Knead more ” our into dough until you get a stiff dough. Roll the dough thin. Cut into strips about 1 inches wide. Cut or tear strips into several pieces and drop into boiling broth. Stir and reduce heat to low. Cover pot and cook about 6 minutes. Remove lid and let mixture continue to bubble. Add black pepper, butter, milk and chicken. Cook until slightly thickened. It will thicken more as it cools.Prudence Hilburn of Piedmont, Alabama, has won more than 30 national cooking awards and written several cookbooks. Write to her at prudencehilburn@aol.com. Prudence Hilburn By Ari LeVauxMore Content NowAs another year begins, and another crop of seed catalogs arrives in the mail, my thoughts turn to summers garden. And usually, at about that time, I remember the words of the outdoorsy writer Tim Cahill: I am a man who sits around at home reading wilderness survival books the way some people peruse seed catalogs or accounts of classic chess games,Ž Cahill wrote, in the introduction to a book of adventure stories called Jaguars Ripped my Flesh.Ž Successful gardeners must hold within them the best characteristics of both chess master and woodsman, combining the patience of the former and the endurance of the latter, with a survivalists intimate knowledge of the landscape and a strategy thats gazing many moves ahead. But while gardening could be about survival like the other pursuits Cahill mentions, thats not really why we do it. We do it for the full-contact grappling contest with nature, the bees and the rain and the weeds and the dirt. We do it because it feels like the thing to do. Am I right? And we do it because the garden also offers us specific things for specific individuals. For me, the garden is a place for whimsy, creativity and relaxation. Its more about fun than production. Whatever your goals may be, its important to be clear about your expectations. Especially now, when you have a bunch of seed catalogs spread before you. If youre anything like me, seed catalogs make your credit card itch. So before you go crazy, make a plan. I like to simplify things by skipping any plants that need to be started inside. Im done with using a sunny windowsill to start my tomatoes. Unless you have a real grow space and the proper gear, starting seeds indoors is a losing proposition. Your tomato seedlings will probably be an embarrassment compared to the greenhousegrown beauties you could have purchased at the farmers market. The only thing I grow in large enough quantities to store is garlic. The rest of the garden, I plant to eat. And to frolic among. Berries and peas for the kids, bitter greens and basil for the adults. All these can be ordered from a seed catalog and planted directly, without having to be grown inside. Climbing plants like beans, planted next to a fence or sunflowers, are a no-brainer to me. I will leave you with a recipe for PastaPestoPrego, a recipe that I developed in college. Its a glimpse at what you can make if you plan ahead, and get on the yearlong cycle that this recipe demands. If you want to get on the cycle, the only immediate job is to order basil seeds, because basil is so damn expensive and easy to grow you really should. Order a big bag and plant them everywhere, as soon as the threat of frost has passed. With your garden-fresh basil and tomatoes, make PastaPestoPrego all summer long. In fall, buy bulk quantities of tomato and basil and make a winter stash of tomato sauce and pesto.FLASH IN THE PANGarden freshWhat to plant now for a year of PastaPestoPregoPastaPestoPrego is a glimpse at what you can make if you plan ahead in your garden, and get on the yearlong cycle that this recipe demands. [ARI LEVAUX] PastaPestoPrego€ Big pot of boiling water € Pasta noodles € Half an onion, minced € Two garlic cloves, pressed, grated or minced € Pesto (basil, garlic, hard cheese, olive oil, nuts; all pulverized) € Red sauce (tomatoes, onions, wine, oregano. You know, red sauce) € Cheese, such as Parmesan or Romano € Ground meat (optional) Before you even take off your backpack, get the pasta water going. Quickly chop half an onion and put it in a pan with olive oil and oregano on medium. Add meat if using. Cook until delicious. Season as necessary. Add noodles to boiling water. Take off backpack. Add red sauce to pan when the meat and onions are ready. When noodles are done to your liking, drain them and toss with olive oil and minced garlic. This, right here, is the most important trick you need to know about pasta: The garlic will cook in the hot oiled noodles and the house will smell amazing. Then stir in the cheese and pesto. Finally, toss in the red sauce. Add more grated cheese, if necessary, and proceed to eat until it hurts.

** D2 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | The News Herald WEATHERBy Becky KrystalThe Washington PostLearn to roast a whole chicken, and youll eat well for life. And, hey, if youre anything like Prince Harry, it might help you get engaged, too! There are plenty of reasons you should add a roast chicken to your cooking repertoire. It can be an impressive centerpiece for dinner, and you can use the meat to make so many other dishes, whether its enchiladas, chicken salad or pot pies. Plus, the bones are ideal for broth, and if your chicken comes with a giblet packet of the liver, gizzard and such, make stock or gravy. Just as important: Roasting a chicken is not that hard. You can scour the internet or cookbooks and find way too many complicated or intimidating strategies. Brining. Flipping. Stove top and then oven. Spatchcocking. I didnt want any of it. I wanted to roast a chicken, simply.Roasting a chicken is as easy as putting a baking sheet in ovenOne-Pan Roast Chicken and PotatoesAdapted from How to Roast Everything,Ž by Americas Test Kitchen (Penguin Random House, 2018). Ingredients € One whole 3 -to-4-pound chicken, giblet packet removed if included € 1 tablespoon vegetable oil € Kosher salt € Freshly ground black pepper € 1 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and cut into -inch slices € Extra-virgin olive oil Steps: Place a durable baking sheet on the middle oven rack; preheat to 450 degrees. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Rub the entire surface with the vegetable oil and season the skin generously with salt and pepper. Tie the legs together and tuck the wingtips (the segment from the last joint to the tip) behind the back. (This keeps those parts from cooking too fast and drying out.) Toss the potatoes with just enough olive oil to lightly coat them; this will help keep them from sticking to the pan. Transfer the chicken, breast side up, to the center of the preheated baking sheet in the oven. Scatter the potatoes around, but not under, the chicken. Alternatively, if you dont feel comfortable reaching into the oven with the rack pulled out, remove the heated baking sheet from the oven to add the chicken and potatoes before proceeding with roasting. Roast the chicken and potatoes for 25 to 35 minutes, until the breast registers 120 degrees on an instant-read thermometer (temperature taken away from the bone) and the thighs 135 degrees. Turn off the oven; let the chicken and potatoes rest there for 25 to 35 minutes, until the breast registers 160 degrees and thighs 175 degrees. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board to rest for 20 minutes; this is an key step that allows the juices to be reabsorbed into the meat. By Becky KrystalThe Washington PostAlmost any onion will make you cry once you slice it open. So does it really matter which one you grab at the grocery store? You probably think Im going to tell you, Yes, absolutely, and if you choose the wrong one, your recipe will be ruined!Ž Thats only sort of true. Theyre more interchangeable than you might think, at least in a good number of situations. Lets focus on the supermarket staples of yellow, white and red. Sweet onions „ Vidalia, Walla Walla, etc. „ are great, but theyre much more perishable and less widely available during a short season. And pearl onions, shallots, scallions and leeks are distinctive enough from their globular cousins to not create substitution confusion. The big three have a lot in common. They: € Sport the characteristic papery skin that litters the bottom of every single one of your reusable shopping bags. € Contain sulfur-based compounds that, when exposed to air, will at least make your eyes water if not downright weep. € Store well, for at least a few weeks, and up to a month or two, when kept in a cool, dark place with good air circulation. Not the refrigerator. (Im guilty.) € Follow the same flavor progression of pungent when raw to progressively sweeter as they cook. For the vast majority of us, the biggest difference may be their color. If you closed your eyes and tasted samples of each, would you be able to tell them apart? I dont think I could. Still, if youre going to choose one type of onion to always have on hand, youre best going with the yellow onion. According to the National Onion Association (yes, this is a thing! and their Twitter handle is @ Onionista), the yellow onion accounts for about 87 percent of the countrys crop, with red a distant second at 8 percent and white a measly 5 percent. Its acceptable raw, ranging from mild to pungent depending on age, and gets mellower as it cooks. Yellow is the ideal variety for caramelizing. When you are sauteing onions to build flavor as a base for your dish (soup, tomato sauce, you name it), the yellow onion is your friend. That being said, white onions are a totally acceptable substitute for yellow, especially if youre cooking them. Based on conventional wisdom, white onions are milder and crisper than yellow, which is why you might want to use them thinly sliced in a salad, chopped in pico de gallo or in other raw preparations. The biggest drawback of white onions is not their flavor, but rather that they dont last as long in storage. Red onions are particularly good raw in many of the same places as their white cousins. Red onions work well in salads and guacamole, or on a juicy burger, in part because of their vivid color. One of my favorite ways to use red onions is pickling them including red wine vinegar in the brining liquid only enhances the visual pop. I would not, however, recommend adding them to your frittata, as I once did. The onions natural chemicals didnt get along too well with my eggs, which emerged from the oven an unappetizing blue-green-gray color. So many good meals start with an onion. Even more would be improved by adding one. And now the next time you shed tears, it wont be because you didnt know which color to choose.How to know which onion to use in your recipeGreat recipes start with an onion.
