By Martha BellisleThe Associated PressSEATTLE „ Recent mass shootings have spurred Congress to try to improve the nations gun background check system that has failed on numerous occasions to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous people.The problem with the legislation, experts say, is that it only works if federal agencies, the military, states, courts and local law enforcement do a better job of sharing information with the background check system „ and they have a poor track record in doing so. Some of the nations most horrific mass shootings have revealed major holes in the database reporting system, including massacres at Virginia Tech in 2007 and at a Texas church last year.Despite the failures, many states still arent meeting key benchmarks with their back-ground check reporting that enable them to receive federal grants similar to whats being proposed in the current legislation.Its a completely hap-hazard system „ sometimes it works; sometimes it doesnt,Ž said Georgetown University law professor Larry Gostin. When youre talking about school childrens lives, rolling the dice isnt good enough.ŽIn theory, the FBIs background check database, tapped by gun dealers during a sale, should have a definitive list of people who Background check system riddled with aws By Katie Landeck 522-5114 | @PCNHKatieL klandeck@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ Claiming the threat to the Panama City crayfish has been grossly overstated,Ž Congressman Neal Dunn has added his voice to those opposing listing the crustacean under the Endan-gered Species Act.In a letter to Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke on March 1, Dunn asked him to prevent the crayfish „ which is found only in Bay County „ from being listed. He questioned the supporting science used by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.Working under threat of further litigation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) hastily proposed a rule that erroneously used survey data on the presence of cray-fish at a particular location as a substitute for scientific assessment of population size,Ž wrote Dunn in a letter to Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke.The debate over the Panama City Crayfishs status as a protected species was reig-nited earlier in January, when FWS filed paperwork to list the crustacean as threatened under the Endangered Spe-cies Act.The public comment period ended on March 5, during which time FWS received 50 comments. (See page E1 for a guest opinion piece regarding the crayfish authored by Mary Sittman).Four comments, submitted primarily by wildlife defense groups, were in favor of listing the species.

Watching right along with the rest of America, and the world, were students, suddenly expected to reconcile what they were seeing with the school they go to every day „ the place that for many of them is the only safe refuge in their lives.Before Valentines Day, most students would have assumed the fire alarm meant, at best, a drill or malfunction and at worst, a small fire somewhere on campus.After Valentines Day, when a faulty smoke detector triggered the alarm, Balkom said some of his high school students were so afraid they wouldnt leave the building.That broke my heart,Ž he said.In the days and weeks since the shooting, theres been a marked shift in lan-guage. Schools are less likely to be referred to as places of education, but are instead soft targets,Ž places that need harden-ingŽ not of lesson plans or curriculums, but of secu-rity. Bay District Schools is poised to hire 15 to 20, not teachers, but law enforce-ment officers to guard elementary schools, and spend $4 million on fenc-ing, camera systems and construction to create secure entrances at over a dozen schools in the next year. All of that, of course, costs money „ money that School Board Chair Ginger Littleton said could, ultimately, have gone to much-needed teacher raises.But at this point, she added, most people are going to think twice about teaching in what is so obviously a soft target as a school.ŽSchool Safety and Security Chief Mike Jones said he has been fielding calls since the shooting from vendors offering heavy-duty fencing, state-of-the-art cameras, special lighting, metal detectors, specialty locks that can only be opened by law enforcement, even drones to monitor campus.By the end of the year, he said, there will be between 1,500 to 1,600 cameras at schools and on buses watching campuses and students, along with an armed guard at every elementary and middle school and two at every high school. Fencing will be shored up. Gates will be locked. Doors secured.At a recent School Board workshop, board member Joe Wayne Walker refer-enced keeping the fox out of the hen houseŽ as their approach „ doing everything possible to deter or keep someone out, and, if they get in, limiting where they can go and who they can hurt. Because, Little-ton said, the school is at an extreme disadvantageŽ if the fox gets in. Cruz fired his high-powered rifle more than 150 times in the six minutes he was in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.Even with an armed guard, or armed personnel in the school, School Board Attorney Franklin Harri-son estimated the response time to an active shooter to be about three minutes. In three minutes, he said, an AR-15 or similar firearm can let off 270 rounds.Ive spoken to my go-to people in law enforcement about whats the answer,Ž said Littleton. And they say turn the schools into prisons. Thats the only answer. I dont like it, but thats the answer I got from law enforcement.ŽMembers of the Bay Dis-trict School Board, along with Superintendent Hus-felt, share a unique thread with school shooting vic-tims „ they are one of the few, if not the only, school boards who have ever been involved in a shooting. On Dec. 14, 2010, Clay Duke, upset his wife had been fired by the district and her unemployment had run out, walked into a School Board meeting with a 9mm Smith & Wesson 469 semi-automatic pistol saying he was going to die that day, but some of them would die too. He fired point-blank at Husfelt, then other board members as they dove under the table, exchanged fire with Jones and eventually put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger. Neither Husfelt, nor the board members were injured, but the event shaped, at least in part, the boards view on school safety.You cannot be staring death in the face at that particular location we come to every two weeks, often more than that, and not be acutely aware that it did happen here, so it can happen anywhere,Ž Little-ton said.According to Jones, the district has been ahead of the curve in many respects when it comes to safety and security at the schools. Theres an armed School Resource Deputy at every middle and high school, and last year they hired four School District Police Officers to cover five elementary schools each. Thirteen years ago, Jones said there were only 50 cameras in the whole district, and now they have over a thousand. The schools and district offices are connected by a net-work of about 900 radios, and they had been in the process of constructing secure entryways at each of the schools, at a rate of about four a year.The Parkland shooting, he said, has accelerated many efforts that are already in place, though the initiatives come with a steep cost. Theres the $4 million for secure entryways, $250,000 to hire extra officers, $57,000 for the School Guard active shooter alert app „ which last week was accidentally triggered and sent 37 officers with lights and sirens to Cherry Street Elementary School „ along with talk of $750,000 for additional mental health services in the schools. Much of it, Husfelt believes, will be reimbursed by the state, and its included in the school safety bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott on Friday, but he doesnt want to wait until the bill goes into effect and has pushed for the board to move forward as quickly as possible.Though publicly board members and district officials agree the upgrades are likely necessary, they are not overly enthusiastic about the cost, or the direction. It goes back to turning the schools into prisons, and Littleton believes that the schools, as the recipients of most of societys problems, should not shoulder the burden alone.The question is, can we afford to do it?Ž asked Lit-tleton. Or can we afford not to do it? All it takes is some squirrely person with a big fat gun. And if we didnt do it, wed never be able to live with ourselves.The taxpayers are going to take it in the gut,Ž she continued. And someone needs to pay for it.ŽAnd theres also the emotional toll of having to confront the possibility of Bay District students being involved in a school shooting. The L.A. Times published a map, last updated after the Parkland shooting, that found a firearm had been fired on a school campus about once a week since the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, including an incident in 2016 at Oscar Patterson Elementary School, when a part-time corrections officer there for a job interview acciden-tally shot himself n the leg while replacing rounds in his revolver.I never sleep,Ž Jones said. I lay in bed at night thinking about how Im going to prevent a Park-land from happening here. What can I do next and where am I going to get the money to do it?ŽIts emotional,Ž Balkom said. Its something that I never really thought that I would have to sit down with kids and reassure them that, you dont have to be afraid here at school. Its a sacred place. This is your safe zone.ŽHusfelt fears its not only adults who will be impacted by the changes.I think the psychosis of turning schools into a prison-like atmosphere will do more damage,Ž he said.Happening concurrently with discussion around security measures is the debate over whether to arm teachers or school personnel to better respond to an active shooter situation. The school safety bill signed by Gov. Scotts contains funding for a guardianŽ program, where certain school employees could volunteer to be armed if they have gone through the proper training.Its a future that has Jones, and many others, concerned.For Jones, the reasons largely tie back to the School Board shooting in 2010, when he stuck his head into the boardroom and saw Duke had taken members hostage with a handgun. More people in that room with more guns, he said, would have brought more variables into a situation where a snap decision could mean life and death. If a teacher he didnt recognize had stood up and started shooting at Duke, Jones said he probably would have shot at them too. If a school board member, coming down from adren-aline after the shootout, was armed, its possible they might have fired on the first law enforcement officers on scene, who all arrived in plainclothes. Or, perhaps, the officers might have fired a school board member, believing them to be the enemy.In an actual school, Jones said, the variables continue „ what if a teacher abandons their class to go after the shooter? What if they accidentally hit a student trying to escape? What if the shooter has an AR-15 and all the teacher has is a pistol?I worry about these things,Ž he said. I know its better than nothing. You can fire that thing and maybe it will run him off. Or maybe it will draw the fire to you.Theres too many variables. I just see sce-narios I dont want to see.ŽThen theres the secrecy of it. Anyone armed, Jones believes, would become a high priority target for a potential shooter, and the identity of those in the guardian program would have to be top secret, like the Air Marshals.Ž Jones said he could pos-sibly support retired law enforcement or members of the military carrying firearms in schools, but bringing them into the equation „ and finding the money to pay them „ is another set of variables. Husfelt has said he would only support employees from law enforcement or military backgrounds to be armed, adding that there are maybe 15Ž people in the entire district who would qualify.Littleton, though, said the prospect makes her head spin.I cannot buy a physics teacher or a chemistry teacher because I cant pay them enough,Ž she said. And yet, the legisla-ture can find money now, because were in a bind, to arm teachers in schools. Theres money for that.Where was it written that someone who signed on to be a teacher, which is a noble calling, should also sign on to be watching his or her back every minute in case theres a shooting?ŽDistrict employees, on the other hand, at least the ones who responded to a district-wide survey on the subject, said they sup-ported having the district adopting the guardian pro-gram and having trained, armed volunteers, in a 60-40 split.Whats clear is that, with the bill signed into law, there are many complex and difficult conversations ahead for school board members, district officials and school employees.For Balkom, the prospect of being put on the front line of an active shooter situation, of turning teachers into, essentially, first respond-ers, is a complicated one. Carrying a weapon is not something that had ever occurred to him when he got into the education field, and hes worried it would change the dynamic with his students, that they would see him, not as a principal, but as someone possibly carrying a gun.I dont know, it saddens me to think that our soci-ety has gotten to a point where a school principal has to carry a weapon,Ž Balkom said. But if thats what it takes to keep our kids safe, thats what Im going to do.Ž SAFETYFrom Page A1Bay Building Industry Associations.The rest were express-ing dissatisfaction with the Endangered Species Act as a whole, Obama Era government employ-ees, climate change and the listing of other species.U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson Ken Warren said that they take all comments very seriously and will evaluate and address them before making our final determination.ŽA final determination, he said, is anticipated by the end of the calendar year.Even if the listing is approved, Dunns office said he will continue to fight to defundŽ the listing.Warren said FWS has worked with Dunns office as well as other interested parties to answer their questions.We remain willing to discuss this listing pro-cess,Ž he said.Warren also defended the work done by FWS.The Service uses the best available science to inform our federal rulemaking process which included both species surveys and hab-itat assessments for the Panama City crayfish,Ž he said. This work was completed in partner-ship with local groups in the community, along public right-of-ways or with the permission of landowners."From 1986 to 2000, the species was believed to be extinct.Not long after its rediscovery, conversations started about listing the species, which has a natural range of only about 50 square miles that FWS says is threatened by development.The crayfish is already listed as a species of concern and protected accordingly by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The Associated Press NATION & WORLD DATELINESBy Paul WisemanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Things had been going along so nicely.Over the past year, the major regions of the world finally shed the scars of a global financial crisis and grew in unison for the first time in a decade. Worldwide growth is expected to hit 3.9 percent this year „ the best pace since 2011 „ and the International Monetary Fund says most countries are sharing in the prosperity.But President Donald Trumps announcement Thursday that the United States would impose heavy tariffs on imported steel and aluminum „ with some countries potentially exempted „ suddenly raised a fear that few had anticipated: That U.S. tar-iffs could trigger a chain of tit-for-tat retaliation by Americas trading partners that could erupt into a full-blown trade war and possibly threaten the global economy.Given how far many countries have come since the painful years of debt crises and a crushing recession, the threat posed by the tariffs struck many as an ill-considered risk.Tariffs threaten to strangle the global golden goose,Ž said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics. The global economy is on the same page for the first time in over a decade. This threatens to derail it.ŽIt remains far from clear how, exactly, the Trump administrations tariffs will be applied, which countries will be subject to them or how economically damaging the retaliation from the affected nations might prove. The presi-dent announced 25 percent tariffs on foreign steel and 10 percent tariffs on foreign aluminum. But he gave Canada and Mexico a reprieve: He exempted them from the tax temporarily „ provided that they agree to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement to Trumps liking.The president has also invited other countries to try to negotiate their way out of the tariffs, though his administration has yet to explain how the appeals process will work. The lack of details about when or how individual countries could apply for waivers has only compounded the uncertainty surrounding the economic impact of the tariffs.On Saturday, Trump tweeted anew his posi-tion that the U.S. has been abused economically by the EU: The European Union, wonderful countries who treat the U.S. very badly on trade, are complaining about the tariffs on Steel & Aluminum. If they drop their horrific barriers & tariffs on U.S. products going in, we will likewise drop ours. Big Deficit. If not, we Tax Cars etc. FAIR!ŽEuropean nations, though, are already threat-ening to retaliate with tariffs of their own against such iconic American products as motorcycles, blue jeans and bourbon, among others.Across the world, China, the worlds second-largest economy after the United States, is also sending ominous signals. Beijing said it was ready to coun-terpunch if the U.S. tariffs hurt Chinese companies, though in a statement Friday it made no specific retaliation threat.Chinas Commerce Ministry criticized Trump for acting unilaterally rather than working through the World Trade Organization. In a statement, Wang Hejun, a ministry official, warned that the tariffs will surely have a serious impact on the normal international order.ŽAny trade war would upset an international economic order that has achieved stability and rela-tive health. From Brussels to Beijing to Buenos Aires, pockets of the world had long suffered from the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis but have been recovering steadily. Europe and Japan, both laggards for years, are at last showing steady growth.Developing countries, too, have mostly recovered from a 2014-2015 crash in commodities prices. And the United States is enjoying a job market boom, fueled in part by the stronger global economy, rising business and consumer confidence and the sweeping tax cuts that Trump pushed through Congress.Globally, stock markets have also posted strong gains over the past year. And inflation has remained in check.But economists at Barclays Bank warn that this Goldilocks scenario „ solid, steady economic expansion, but not so fast as to ignite inflation „ could reverse in the aftermath of Trumps tariff announcement. The tariffs themselves arent the main problem. S&P Global Ratings notes that the United States last year imported $29 billion worth of steel and $17 billion of aluminum „ a trifle given that U.S. goods imports totaled $2.4 trillion last year.Rather, the worry is that a widening trade war with layers of retaliatory tariffs would depress global trade, which grew 4.2 percent last year, the most since 2011, on the fuel of the global economy.The United States has much to lose from any dete-rioration in the economic environment. The nations unemployment rate has remained for months at a 17-year low 4.1 percent. And employers in February added a robust 313,000 jobs „ the most in any month in a year and a half.The tariffs, economists at Northern Trust say, mark a break from the market-friendly actions taken by President Donald Trump in his first year in office.Ž Trump has cut taxes and reduced some regulations on businesses „ policies that tend to boost company profits and bolster business confidence.Tariffs dont work that way. They will benefit steel and aluminum producers by raising metals prices. But they will hurt the far more numerous companies and consumers that buy steel and aluminum. The Trade Partnership, a con-sulting firm, estimates that the tariffs would increase employment in the U.S. steel and aluminum sector by about 33,000 jobs but cost 179,000 jobs in the rest of the economy.Tari s could have global impactEuropean Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmstroem speaks during a media conference Wednesday at EU headquarters in Brussels. The European Union will set out its strategy Wednesday on how to counter potential U.S. punitive tariffs on steel and aluminum. [VIRGINIA MAYO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

To me it absolutely makes no difference because they do not represent the government,Ž Putin answered, according to the Russian-language interview transcript posted Saturday by the Kremlin.Putin said Russia has neither the tools nor the will to meddle in elections. He repeatedly complained during the interview that Washington has brushed off Russian initiatives to work together on cyber-security issues.Putin on alleged US election interference: I dont careBy Gregory KatzThe Associated PressLONDON „ Britain offers wealthy Russians many attractions: the great city of London, the bucolic countryside, exclusive schools, and a global financial hub. But for some former spies and other foes of President Vladimir Putin, it has become lethal.The latest victims near deaths door are 66-year-old Sergei Skripal „ a former colonel in Russias military intelligence service, then a turncoat helping British agents who was convicted in Russia before being freed in a spy swap„ and his 33-yearold daughter, Yulia. Both were found comatose on a public bench Sunday in the medieval English city of Salisbury.British officials say they were exposed to a rare nerve agent of unde-termined origin. Their prognosis is unclear; offi-cials have not said if they have suffered irreversible damage.Some lawmakers and a former top law enforcement official say the nerve agent attack fits a pattern of suspicious deaths in the U.K. and in the United States. They are calling for a highlevel police investigation into whether Britain has become a killing ground for the state-sanctioned elimination of enemies of the Russian government.The deaths that have caused qualms include a man who was impaled through the chest by the spikes of an iron fence; a former Putin aide found dead in a Washington hotel room with blunt force injuries; and an ex-spy poisoned by radioactive tea.British officials have not openly blamed the Russian government for the brazen assault of the Skripals, but it is raising hard questions on how to deal with Russian aggres-sion „ even as officials in the U.S. are trying to determine how to respond to Russian interference in U.S. elections.Several politicians, analysts and intelligence agencies believe the case of Skripal, who moved to Britain after he was freed in a 2010 spy swap, may prove to be the work of the Russian government, Russian organized crime groups, or a fluid alliance of the two.Poisoning is latest in string of suspicious cases

That changed quickly to frustration, befuddlement and serious concern.This will wreak havoc on the states,Ž said Pankaj Bhanot, who serves as director of Hawaiis Department of Human Services and is in charge of administering the states Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, to roughly 165,000 residents scattered across a series of islands.SNAP administrators across the country shared Bhanots reservations about Americas Harvest Box,Ž pitched by USDA officials as a way to cut costs and improve effi-ciency. Administrators say their programs already are efficient, allowing recipients to purchase whatever foods they want directly from retailers, which ben-efits families, retailers and local economies.The proposal is part of an effort to reduce the cost of the SNAP program by roughly $213 billion over a 10-year period.Brandon Lipps, administrator of the Food and Nutrition Service at USDA, said the idea was partially inspired by rapidly changing models for how people get their gro-ceries. The USDA last year launched a pilot program that allows SNAP recipients to order provisions online using their EBT, or Electronic Benefit Transfer, cards, which function like debit cards but can only be used to purchase groceries.Debate stirs over Americas Harvest Box, bene t planBy Keith RidlerThe Associated PressBOISE, Idaho „ Federal scientists are trying to decide if its time to let the big dogs out.Nearly 120 dogs from three large breeds perfected over centuries in Europe and Asia to be gentle around sheep and children but vicious when confronting wolves recently underwent a study to see how theyd react to their old nemesis on a new continent.The dogs were gathered as puppies in Portugal, Bulgaria and Turkey and sent to the American West, where they spent four years guarding sheep.When we were first looking at doing this, a lot of people wanted to know: What dog do I use in dealing with wolves and grizzly bears?Ž said Julie Young, a Utah-based research biologist with the U.S. Agriculture Depart-ments National Wildlife Research Center.The department looked to areas where dog breeds developed to guard sheep against wolves and brown bears. Then scientists supplied Cao de Gado Transmontanos, a large though lean and agile dog developed in a mountain-ous region of Portugal; Karakachans, developed by nomadic sheepherd-ers in a mountainous area of Bulgaria; and Kangals, another powerful breed with an instinct for guard-ing, this one originating in Turkey.Dogs from all three breeds can weigh up to 140 pounds (64 kilo-grams), about the size of a wolf. The dogs were sent to guard 65 herds in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon.Scientists are still analyzing information from notes, remote cameras and GPS collars, Young said, with four or five scientific papers expected in the next year. But overall, she said, the dogs did well keeping away wolves and better than traditional guard dogs at deterring coyotes.Imported dogs deployed as part of US wolf-sheep study

** A12 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Marilynn MarchioneThe Associated PressORLANDO „ A newer cholesterol drug, used with older statin medicines, modestly lowered heart risks and deaths in a big study of heart attack sur-vivors that might persuade insurers to cover the pricey treatment more often.Results on the drug, Praluent (PRALL-yooent), were announced Saturday at an American College of Cardiology conference in Florida. Its the first time a cholesterol-lowering drug has reduced deaths since statins such as Lipitor and Crestor came out decades ago.Its the ultimate out-come; its what matters to patients,Ž said study leader Dr. Philippe Gabriel Steg of Hospital Bichat in Paris.But the benefit was small „ 167 people would need to use Praluent for nearly three years to prevent a single death.Thats a high costŽ that may still hinder its use, said one independent expert, Dr. Amit Khera, a preventive cardiologist at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and a spokesman for the American Heart Association.The drugs makers, Sanofi and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, sponsored the study and said they would work with insurers on pricing to get the medicine to those who need it the most. About the study Doctors focus on lower-ing LDL, or bad cholesterol, to prevent heart problems. Statins are the main med-icines for this, but some people cant tolerate or get enough help from them.Praluent and a similar drug, Amgens Repatha, work in a different way and lower cholesterol much more. Patients give themselves shots of the medicine once or twice a month. The drugs have been sold since 2015 but cost more than $14,000 a year, and insurers have balked at paying without proof that they reduce health problems, not just the cholesterol number.Last year, a study showed Repatha cut heart problems but did not improve survival. The new study tested the rival drug, Praluent, for a longer time and in patients at higher risk „ nearly 19,000 people who in the previous year had a heart attack or chest pain serious enough to put them in the hospital.All had LDL over 70 despite maximum statin use. Half were given Pral-uent and the rest, dummy shots. Praluent was started at a lower dose and increased if LDL did not drop below 50. After nearly three years, 9.5 percent of those on Praluent and 11.1 percent of those on dummy medicine had suffered a heart attack, stroke, heart-related death or serious chest pain; 3.5 percent on Praluent and 4.1 percent on dummy medi-cine died.That worked out to a 15 percent lower risk with Praluent. Benefits were greater for those whose LDL was 100 or more at the start of the study. The drug had no major safety issues.What doctors sayWe need to reset our expectationsŽ and realize that benefits for any new drug are going to be fairly small when added to already good treatments such as statins, said Dr. Jeffrey Kuvin, conference leader and cardiology chief at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. The new drugs clearly help people at high risk and are not aimed at people at low risk, such as those who have high cholesterol but have never had a heart attack, he said.Study: Cholesterol drug lowers the risk of deathThis undated product image provided by Sano“ shows Praluent 75 mg, a drug sold by Sano“ and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

Giving consumers a share of drug company rebates for their prescriptions. Wider access to websites that reliably compare cost and quality of medical tests.The Trump administra-tion is taking a pragmatic new tack on health care, with officials promising consumer friendly changes and savings in areas from computerized medical records to prescription drugs. New Health and Human Ser-vices Secretary Alex Azar has been rolling out the agenda, saying it has the full backing of President Donald Trump.They are taking a page out of smart policymaking 101 and hitting on themes that everybody cares about,Ž said Kavita Patel, a health policy expert at the Brookings Institution and a veteran of the Obama administra-tion. But there is not a lot of detail on how theyre going to do it.ŽThe first year of the Trump administration was marked by Republicans unsuccessful struggle to repeal the Affordable Care Act. With Azar installed as Trumps second health secretary, the adminis-tration is shifting to issues of broader concern for people with Medicare and employer-provided cov-erage. Many of the ideas have bipartisan support and can be advanced without legislation from Congress.A look at new priori-ties outlined by Azar and Seema Verma, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services: Computerized recordsMost hospitals and doctors now have electronic records, but the systems dont necessarily talk to each other and patients find that their medical information remains hard to access.The administration wants to write new stan-dards nudging industry to get the systems communicating. That would allow patients to easily transfer records from one provider to another.Were not interested in micromanaging how this process happens,Ž Azar said. Patients ought to have control of their records in a useful format, period.ŽMedicare is working with software developers on apps that can provide beneficiaries with access to their claims data, which offer important medical details but not a complete picture.Dan Mendelson, CEO of the consulting firm Avalere Health, says the goal is within reach, perhaps over a threeyear period. A lot of the groundwork has been laid by previous administrations, starting with Republican George W. Bush and advancing under Democrat Barack Obama.They are definitely taking a new tack on health care,Ž Mendelson said of the Trump administration. Drug costsAs a candidate, Trump called for Medicare to negotiate drug prices and for allowing U.S. patients to import lower-cost pre-scriptions from overseas.

He was identified as Albert Wong, 36, a former Army rifleman who served a year in Afghanistan in 2011-2012.Investigators were still trying to determine when and why Wong killed two executives and a psycholo-gist at The Pathway Home, a nonprofit post-traumatic stress disorder program at the Veterans Home of Cal-ifornia-Yountville in the Napa Valley wine country region.It was far too early to say if they were chosen at randomŽ because investigators had not yet determined a motive, California Highway Patrol Assistant Chief Chris Childs said.Gov. Jerry Brown ordered flags flown at half-staff at the Capitol in memory of the victims. They were identified as The Pathway Home Executive Director Chris-tine Loeber, 48; Clinical Director Jennifer Golick, 42; and Jennifer Gonzales, 29, a clinical psychologist with the San Francisco Department of Veterans Affairs Healthcare System who was seven months pregnant.The three women that were lost yesterday dedi-cated their lives to helping our veterans. They lived their lives selflessly to serve others,Ž Yountville Mayor John Dunbar, who is also a board member of The Pathway Home, said Sat-urday. We also lost one of our heroes who clearly had demons that resulted in the terrible tragedy that we all experienced here.ŽLoeber, who had taken over The Pathway Home 18 months ago, was known by all as dedicated and caring.She would sleep in her office more often than not because she had to be there to fill a shift, thats the kind of personal dedication she showed all of us,Ž Dunbar said.Family friend Tom Turner said Loeber would be helping others understand and deal with the tragedy if she were still alive.Shed have a better per-spective than I would,Ž he said. And she wouldnt be as angry I am.ŽMarjorie Morrison, the founder of a nonprofit organization known as PsychArmor, recalled Gonzales as brilliantŽ talent who did amazing work with veterans with PTSD.This was like her work and her passion,Ž she said. Mother-to-be Gonzales was supposed to travel to Washington, D.C. this weekend to celebrate her wedding anniversary, family friend Vasiti Ritova said.Golicks father-in-law, Mike Golick, said in an interview she had recently expelled Wong from the program.The Pathway Home is located on the sprawling campus of the veterans centers, the largest veterans home in the nation, which cares for about 1,000 elderly and disabled vets.Wong went to the campus about 53 miles north of San Francisco on Friday morning, slipping into a going-away party for some employees of The Pathway Home.Larry Kamer told The Associated Press that his wife, Devereaux Smith, called him to say that the gunman had entered the room quietly, letting some people leave while taking others hostage.Golick called her hus-band, Mark, to say that she had been taken hostage by the former soldier, her father-in-law said.Mark Golick didnt hear from her again.A Napa Valley sheriffs deputy exchanged gunshots with the hostage-taker at about 10:30 a.m. but after that nothing was heard from Wong or his hostages despite daylong efforts to contact him, authorities said.Sandra Woodford, an Army veteran who was working across the street at the crafts center, saw the exchange of gunfire from her vantage about 150 feet away.Army vet gunned down devoted womenThree ladies dedicated their lives to assisting traumatized veterans, now dead a er tragic California shooting

** A14 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Dan LamotheThe Washington PostAs the White House pre-pares for what could be the first meeting between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader, the U.S. and South Korean militaries will carry out exercises that Pyongyang has long called provocative but now appears to accept.South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-yong announced Thursday at the White House that in addition to President Donald Trump agreeing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May, Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from additional nuclear or missile tests and understands that the rou-tine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue.ŽThe latter acknowledg-ment marked a significant shift for the Kim regime. Each spring, the United States and South Korea launch military exercises known as Foal Eagle and Key Resolve, and the Kim regime has typically reacted angrily. The exercises there are seen as preparation for an attack on Pyongyang, while the South Koreans and Ameri-cans characterize them as defensive in nature.Last year, North Korea fired four ballistic missiles toward Japan in what was widely seen as a response to the exercises. The North Korean military already had warned that if a single shell fell in waters near the Korean Peninsula, it would immediately launch mer-cilessŽ counteractions.The exercises are believed to include rehearsals of what is known as OPLAN 5015, in which U.S. and South Korean forces would carry out decapitationŽ strikes aimed at killing Kim and other senior members of his regime. North Korean hackers stole a trove of classified data in 2016, including information about the strikes, a South Korean lawmaker announced last year.Foal Eagle began last year on March 3, with about 3,600 U.S. troops deploying to South Korea to join others among the 28,500 U.S. forces based there to participate in the exercises, according to U.S. Pacific Command. The exercises included the new F-35B Joint Strike Fighter among a fleet of aircraft, the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson and other Navy ships, and ground forces.The exercise this year is expected to begin at the end of the month a delay that South Korea requested to work around the now-concluded Winter Olympics and the Winter Paralympics, which began Friday. The operation includes live exercises and a variety of war games involving com-puter simulations.The exercises are book-ended by another set of computer-simulated exercises late each summer known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian. Those exercises focus on defending South Korea from attack.Military exercises are on, despite planned meeting with KimBy Sadie GurmanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration said Saturday it has taken the first step in the regula-tory process to ban bump stocks, likely setting the stage for long legal battles with gun manufacturers while the trigger devices remain on the market.The move was expected after President Donald Trump ordered the Justice Department to work toward a ban following the shooting deaths of 17 people at a Florida high school in February. Bump stocks, which enable guns to fire like auto-matic weapons, were not used in that attack „ they were used in last years Las Vegas massacre „ but have since become a focal point in the gun control debate.The Justice Departments regulation would classify the hardware as a machine gun banned under federal law. That would reverse a 2010 decision by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that found bump stocks did not amount to machine guns and could not be regulated unless Congress amended existing firearms law or passed a new one.A reversal of the depart-ments earlier evaluation could be seen as an admis-sion that it was legally flawed, which manufacturers could seize on in court. Even as the Trump administration moves toward banning the devices, some ATF officials believe it lacks the authority to do so.But any congressional effort to create new gun control laws would need support from the pro-gun Republican majority. A bid to ban the accessory fizzled last year, even as lawmakers expressed openness to the idea after nearly 60 people were gunned down in Las Vegas.Some states have sought their own restric-tions in light of the inaction. A ban on bump stocks was part of a farreaching school safety bill signed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Repub-lican, on Friday that was immediately met with a lawsuit by the National Rifle Association. The powerful group has said it supports ATF regulations on the accessory but opposes any legislation that would do that same. The NRA did not immediately return calls for comment Saturday.Calls mounted for a bump stock ban after the Las Vegas shooting, and the Justice Department said in December it would again review whether they can be prohibited under federal law. Trump told officials to expedite the review, which yielded more than 100,000 com-ments from the public and the firearms industry. Many of the comments came from gun owners angry over any attempt to regulate the accessory, a move they view as a slippery slope toward out-lawing guns altogether.The proposal still needs the approval of the Office of Management and Budget.Justice proposes banning rapidre bump stocks

** The News Herald | Sunday, March 11, 2018 A15By Robert BurnsThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The U.S. is bolstering its military presence in Afghanistan, more than 16 years after the war started. Is anyone paying attention?Consider this: At a Senate hearing this past week on top U.S. security threats, the word AfghanistanŽ was spoken exactly four times, each during introductory remarks. In the ensuing two hours of questions for intelligence agency witnesses, no senator asked about Afghanistan, suggesting little interest in a war with nearly 15,000 U.S. troops supporting combat against the Taliban.Its not as if the wars end is in sight.Just last month the bulk of an Army training brigade of about 800 sol-diers arrived to improve the advising of Afghan forces. Since January, attack planes and other aircraft have been added to U.S. forces in Afghanistan.But its not clear that the war, which began in October 2001, is going as well as the U.S. had hoped seven months after President Donald Trump announced a new, more aggressive strategy. The picture may be clearer once the traditionally most intensive fighting season begins in April or May. Over the winter, American and Afghan warplanes have focused on attacking illicit drug facilities that are a source of Taliban revenue.One of Washingtons closest watchers of the Afghanistan conflict, Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, wrote last month that the administration has made major improve-ments in military tactics and plans for developing Afghan forces but has done nothing to deal with civil and political stability.Ž That challenge is expected to come into clearer focus with the approach of parliamentary elections planned for July.The administration not only faces a deteriorating security situation, it has no clear political, governance, or economic strategy to produce Afghan stabil-ity,Ž Cordesman said. In his view, the U.S. military has been assigned a mission impossibleŽ in Afghanistan.Amid little scrutiny, US military ramps upBy Allison KleinThe Washington PostA Girl Scout troop in Colorado studied the effects of smoking and wanted to do something about secondhand smoke. So the teens approached their troop leader and told her they wanted to write a law and propose it to the Aurora City Council to limit smoking, spe-cifically banning lighting up in cars when kids are present.It was out of the blue,Ž said troop leader Kristen Batcho, who works in finance and does not have any political or legislative experience. I said, Weve never done this before. But she quickly decided: Why not?And thus begins the story of how the Aurora City Council outlawed adults smoking in cars with minors. The law took effect last week, with vio-lators facing mandatory community service.Im not a sentimental guy, but it gave me a real renewed faith in the youth of our country,Ž said Aurora City Council member Charles Rich-ardson, who met with the five-girl troop every few weeks for about a year and helped them write the law. The girls, who are 13 and 14, got some help from the council members legal team, too.The vote was a nailbiter, with Mayor Steve Hogan casting the decid-ing vote in favor of the bill, which passed 6-5 last month.When the mayor cast his vote, my daughter started crying,Ž Batcho said. There was this sense of relief. Their hearts could stop pound-ing out of their chests.Ž The bill was controversial in the city of 360,000 people. Some thought it was too much government reach, that smoking in cars should not be policed. Others thought it targeted minorities and the poor, as people in those communi-ties tend to smoke more than other populations.But in the end, the Girl Scouts prevailed.Richardson said he has a personal connection to the idea behind the bill, as his wife has asthma and grew up with people who smoked while she was in the car. I believed in it from outset,Ž Richard-son said.Colorado Girl Scout troop helps craft citys antismoking law

The military field meets consist of low crawling, a grenade toss with water balloons and relay races.Students also compete in color guard exhibition, armed and unarmed.In the end, the event is a culmination of all the skills offered in the ROTC programs of the respective schools. He said the skills and relationships forged in the programs can last a lifetime.Life is competition,Ž Byrd said. Its healthy to have that competition.

** B4 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Garey Fineout and Kelli Kennedy The Associated PressTALLAHASSEE „ The political and legal fallout from Florida Gov. Rick Scotts decision to sign a sweeping gun bill into law following a school massa-cre was nearly immediate as the National Rifle Asso-ciation filed a lawsuit to stop it and political candidates in both parties criticized it.Republican U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, whos running for Florida governor as a cham-pion of gun rights, went on Fox News late Friday night to criticize the law, which raises the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21; extends a three-day waiting period for handgun purchases to include long guns; and bans bump stocks, which allow guns to mimic fully automatic fire.I think when you start getting into some of the blanket restrictions on peoples Second Amendment rights, I think that that is constitutionally vulnerable. ... I mean think about it, you have an enu-merated right in the Bill of Rights, theres really no precedent to just do a blan-ket ban on certain adults,Ž DeSantis said on the show.Grieving families and student survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where a shooter killed 17 people last month, worked feverishly in recent weeks to lobby a gun-friendly, Republican-run state gov-ernment. The new law fell short of achieving a ban on assault-style weapons, but it creates a so-called guardian program enabling some teachers and other school employees to carry guns.Five legislators seek-ing statewide office voted against it, as did the chair-man of the Republican Party of Florida. GOP Attorney General Pam Bondi praised it, but other statewide candidates in the Legislature voted against it. Commissioner of Agri-culture Adam Putnam has expressed his displeasure with the age limits.Scott, whos expected to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson this year, has said the legislation shows Florida can move quickly and get things done,Ž unlike the federal government. Scott has already blasted Nelson for failing to act on guns while hes been in Congress.Democrats, meanwhile, were quick to fault Scott and legislators for failing to include a ban on some types of semi-automatic rifles such as the one used in the Parkland shootings.Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum said that Floridas elected offi-cials simply have not done enough to stop our gun violence epidemic, and that remains true even with the Governors sig-nature today.Ž Miami Beach Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine said in a statement the law falls short of the public demands set by the major-ity of Floridians and the student survivorsŽ of the shooting. We need to ban assault weapons, pass uni-versal background checks, and we certainly dont need more guns in our schools.ŽSeparately, the Trump administration on Saturday said it has taken the first step in the regula-tory process to ban bump stocks.The NRA contends the new law is unconstitu-tional because it raises the minimum age to buy rifles and puts a blanket ban on the fundamental rights of some law-abiding Florida citizens.The deranged mur-derer in Parkland, Florida, gave repeated warning signs that were ignored by federal and state officials. If we want to prevent future atrocities, we must look for solutions that keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves or others, while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans,Ž said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action.Floridas new gun law beset by critics across partisan linesParent Andrew Pollack, center left, and his son Hunter Pollack speak to the media outside the governors of“ ce after the governor signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Act at the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee, Fla., Friday, March 9, 2018.

** The News Herald | Sunday, March 11, 2018 B5By Christine SextonThe News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE „ Nurs-ing homes and assisted living facilities will be required to have generators and 72 hours of fuel after the Legislature agreed to ratify a pair of pro-posed rules sought by Gov. Rick Scott.Despite concerns about a potential $243 million impact over the next five years, House members Friday voted 108-1 to pass a bill (SB 7028) that will require assisted living facili-ties to have generators.The House and Senate had earlier approved a similar rule for nursing homes. Scott issued a statement thanking legislative leaders Friday for ratifying the rules.This means Floridas elderly and vulnerable residents will be safer during natural disasters, and I will never stop fighting to keep them safe,Ž the governor said in a statement.The new rules replace a pair of emergency rules that the governor issued in September following the deaths of resi-dents of The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Broward County. Hurricane Irma knocked out the nursing homes air-conditioning system, which led to swelter-ing conditions.The emergency rules sparked legal challenges from some industry groups concerned about the potential costs of generators and the quick timeframes sought by the Scott administration. The state appealed the deci-sion and continued to enforce the emergency rules.The permanent rules ratified this week came after negotiations between the Scott administration and long-term care facilities. But House leaders had remained concerned about the costs for assisted living facilities, which range dramatically in size. Fridays House vote on the assisted-living facility rule was a surprise turnaround and came after aggressive lobbying from the Scott administration, including Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Justin Senior.The issue of nursing homes and assisted living facilities having backup power on site was a top priority of Scott during this years legislative session. But the House never intro-duced a bill to ratify the ALF generator rule.House leaders, however, agreed Friday to take it up and pass it. Rep. James Grant, R-Tampa, was the lone no vote. The Senate voted unan-imously Monday to approve the bill, which means the measure is now ready to go to Scott for his signature.Gail Matillo, president of the Florida Senior Living Association, said her members are glad to have permanent rules in place.We'll work closely with our members to make sure they can comply in the best way possible," she said.Florida Health Care Asso-ciation lobbyist Bob Asztalos also said the rules lay out what is expected of long-term care providers going into the hurricane season.We appreciate that the governor worked with us developing (the rules) and are pleased that now there is certainty in how we take care of our residents for disaster purposes,Ž he said.Lawmakers sign o on generator requirementsBy Elizabeth Djinis elizabeth.djinis@heraldtribune.comSouth Florida beachgoers have something to worry about right: red tide is on the rise along their beaches just as temperatures have momentarily dropped. Panhandle beaches are showing no signs of the red time organism, nor any indication that there will be any.For South Florida, however, swimmers are being told to be wary. According to data reported by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-mission, concentrations of Karenia brevis, the red tide organism, were found in low to medium amounts around Sarasota County beaches and low amounts in Manatee County beaches. Dead fish along the beach were also reported at four Sarasota County beaches: Casperson Beach, Lido Beach, Mana-sota Beach and Venice Beach, spanning a wide geographical area. Respiratory irritation was also noted in five local beaches: Lido, Manasota, Nokomis, Venice and Venice North Jetty.Mote Marine Laboratory maintains an online Beach Conditions Reporting System, which is updated twice a day with observational reports from local beaches. As of Friday morning, there was slight respiratory irritation reported at Manasota, Venice, Venice North Jetty and Nokomis.High concentrations of red tide were also reported over the holidays in late Decem-ber and early January. At that time, Mote's environmental health staff scientist Tracy Fanara said it was part of the "natural bloom cycle" and that the "one week of high counts" was not an indication of future red tide blooms.A map provided by FWC shows that the highest con-centrations of red tide around the state are off Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee counties. Medium concentrations of Karenia brevis have been present in Sarasota County since at least last week, according to the FWC's site.Red tide on the rise in South FloridaDead “ sh dot the shoreline on Lido Beach on Monday, Sept. 26, 2016.

** B6 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Lindsey BeverThe Washington PostSue Spector was kayaking with her husband down the pristine Braden River in west-ern Florida when she spotted an otter. Spector, 77, from Sarasota, turned around in her boat early Sunday morning and, catching a glimpse of the small river dweller, thought to herself, Oh, this is a cute otter,Ž she told the Tampa Bay Times.The animal, usually known for its curiosity and playful demeanor, leaped onto the kayak and lunged at Spector.Then we had this little tug of war,Ž she told the Tampa Bay Times. I tried to get him off of my kayak and I screamed extremely loud so I could try and scare him off but that didnt work. It took some time, but I fought with him, my husband jumped in and other people came by to help.ŽThe kayak rolled.The couple were thrown into the water half-swimming, half-flailing their paddles to try to fend off the animal.I took my paddle and I tried to get him off of me and he wouldnt let go and I kept screaming, I kept beating him with a paddle,Ž Spector told Fox affiliate WTVT. When youre [in the middle of] it you dont have a lot of thought except you hope you survive.ŽSpector and her husband climbed on their guides kayak and began paddling as fast as we could,Ž she told the Times. The otter followed us but didnt attack again.ŽThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a statement earlier this week that the agencys law enforcement officers were searching for an aggressive otterŽ after four kayakers were injured in separate attacks Saturday and Sunday on the Braden River in Manatee County. The FWC warned that those who are bitten or scratched by wild animals should seek medical attention because they can carry rabies, a potentially deadly virus that attacks the central nervous system.Spector could not immedi-ately be reached for comment.Nicole Duplaix, who chairs the International Union for Conservation of Natures Otter Specialist Group, said otters are known for being friendly animals but, like most other creatures, keep their distance from humans.She said that otter attacks involving humans are extremely rareŽ but that when they do occur, there is usually a reason.An unprovoked attack is very un-otter-like, unless theres a cause you cant see,Ž Duplaix, who teaches conser-vation biology at Oregon State University, said Thursday in a phone interview with The Washington Post. She said that in instances in which otters have attacked, people had gotten too close to mothers with cubs or to their dens.There are 13 species of otters around the world, according to the Integrated Taxonomic Information System. In the United States, there are sea otters and the North American river otter, or Canadian otters.River otters, which weigh between 10 and 33 pounds, have long slender bodies, short legs and webbed toes, according to a fact sheet from the Smithsonian Institutions National Zoo and Conserva-tion Biology Institute.The creatures, which often share aquatic habitats with beavers, enjoy unpolluted water with a minimal human disturbance,Ž according to the National Zoo:A North American river otters home range can be as large as 30 square miles (78 square kilometers), but a typical territory is 3 to 15 square miles (4.8 to 24 square kilometers). That home range shrinks drastically during breeding and rearing season.Cute otter leaps onto kayak, lunges at Florida womans face

** B10 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Martha BellisleThe Associated PressSEATTLE „ When someone buys a weapon from a gun dealer in the U.S., they are subjected to a background check to see if they have a criminal record, mental illness or other issues that prevent them from owning weaponsIts a process that has received attention follow-ing recent mass killings and as Congress pushes to improve the background check system.Here is an explanation about the process: How do background checks work?In most cases, the first step in buying a firearm is to fill out a form that asks a list of questions to find out if the buyer can legally have a gun.The person must check a box to reveal whether he or she has been convicted of a felony, is a fugitive from justice, has been dishonorably discharged from the armed forces, is a subject of a domestic violence restraining order, has been found by a court to have a mental illness, among other things.If the person answers, yesŽ to any of the questions, they are blocked from buying the gun. If they answer no,Ž the next step is for the dealer to run the buyers name through the FBIs National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, to see if any records show the buyer was not telling the truth.The FBI boasts on its website that it takes about eight minutes to process a background check over the phone. If a gun dealer uses an online check, it takes less than two minutes. Are there gaps in the system?Critics point out that the background check system is riddled with issues that let problematic buyers slip through the cracks.For example, if nothing comes up on the background check search, the buyer walks out the door with the firearm. If some-thing turns up but the records cant immediately be found, the FBI then has three days to identify the problem. If they fail to meet that deadline, the dealer must release the gun to the buyer.Thats what happened with Dylann Roof, the man who fatally shot nine people at a South Carolina church in 2015. The FBI failed to confirm a pending drug charge against Roof within the three-day waiting period, and he was able to take the gun home.Some people have pro-posed extending the denial period to two weeks to give law enforcement more time to conduct a thorough investigation.In most cases, if gun buyers take the weapon home, but records later shows theyre prohibited from having one, federal agents have to go take the firearm back. How many background checks are run?A 2016 report by the Justice Departments Inspector General said the FBI processed 51 million NICS transactions between 2008 and 2014, and only 556,496 were denied, about 1 percent.States handled 68 million NICS transactions during that same period. The Inspector Generals report didnt say how many of the state cases were denied.The FBI reports that since NICS started in 1998, there have been 1.5 million deni-als, with the majority being because the person had been convicted of crimes.More than 25 million background checks were run through NICS in 2017, according to the Department of Justice. Searches have steadily increased since the 8.5 million hits in 2000. Kentucky leads the country in requests, with more than 400,000 in January 2018. How do mental health records get reported?Submitting mental health records to the system is one of the more complicated and fractured pieces of the reporting puzzle. Not all agencies understand what must be sent, so many records are missing.After the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007, in which a shooter with an extensive mental illness record was able to purchase guns, the Government Accountability Office conducted a study to find out how states handled mental health reporting.The study found that 12 states had increased their reporting between 2004 and 2011, but technology, legal and other challengesŽ kept some states from sharing mental health records. Some states were reporting criminal records related to drug use, but in 2012, the Department of Justice showed that 30 states were failing to make non-criminal records available.The National Shooting Sports Foundation, based in Newtown, Connecticut, has a program that tracks legislation and rates states based on reporting. Penn-sylvania ranks the highest, with 831,886 mental health records submitted as of Dec. 31, 2016. Wyoming is at the bottom, with only seven records sent to NICS, the group said. Whose job is it?In most states, gun deal-ers contact the FBI directly for background checks. In others, they contact the state.Making it even more complicated, some states serve as the point of contact for handguns but not rifles and shotgun pur-chases, which are screened by the FBI.A look at gun background checks

Lauren Book, pointed at comments by a male colleague the final week of session to show that a sexist attitude con-tinues in the Capitol.Despite Senate President Joe Negron and House Speaker Richard Corcorans vows to tackle the issue, lawmakers wrapped up non-budget business without an agreement on legislation to prevent and punish harassment.It makes me very angry,Ž said Republican Rep. Jennifer Sullivan, who sponsored the House bill. It makes me angry not just because of me, but because of the women who have shared their stories. The womens voices who have been silenced ... by them not finishing this, theyre basically just silencing them yet again by saying were going to maintain the status quo.ŽThe House passed a bill March 1 that included anti-sexual harassment language as part of a broader ethics bill. But the Senate didnt take up that bill, and Books sexual harassment bill was blocked by a conservative senator who refused to hear it in a committee he chaired. On the final day to take up non-budget issues, the Senate revived the bill and passed a scaled down version of Books legislation. The House sent it back to the Senate with changes.Sullivan and Demo-cratic Rep. Kristin Jacobs raced back and forth between the House and Senate chambers working with Book to try to salvage the legislation. Sullivan said a deal was reached, only to then watch the bill die in the Senate.It sends a message that they dont care,Ž Sullivan said. Sexual misconduct has long been a problem in the Capitol, an issue punctu-ated by three high-profile resignations leading up to the session.Despite promises, Florida wont pass sexual harassment billBy Maddie Rowley315-4353 | @maddiedestinlog | mrowley@thedestinlog.comDESTIN „ The diesel fuel pooled against the sides of the dock. Its reddish pink hue almost made it look like someone had spilled a huge raspberry smoothie.But when boat Capt. Kevin Moak got to Destin Harbor on Tues-day morning, he saw the diesel puddle and knew there wasnt much time.The fuel was in a hold-ing ditch behind Harbor Docks restaurant, where stormwater from U.S. 98drains into the harbor through a series of pipes.An approaching storm would push water from thedrainage pipes, over-flow the diesel-filled ditch and send the fuel into the harbor.Moak made phone calls, guessing there was 25 to 30 gallons of fuel threatening to spill out into thewater.I called the city first but never heard back from them, so I called the Coast Guard. The pollution response team is located in Panama City, so they had to drive all the way up from there,Ž Moak said.In the meantime, Moak drove to Ace Hardware and picked up a few oil pads, but there werent enough to do much.Coast Guard Marine Safety Technician 3rd Class Dillon Lyons responded to the scene with his crew as the storm rolled in.My first thoughts upon arriving on scene were to quickly assess the discharge, identify a source and determine a responsible party,Ž Lyons said.It began to pour a few minutes after the Coast Guard crew arrived. The water rushed out of the storm drain and overflowed the ditch that held the diesel fuel. The fuel mixed with the stormwater and spread out into the harbor.It was too late.Ž Moak said. There was nothing anyone could have done at that point.ŽThe diesel fuel spread over the harbor and createda slick, rainbow sheen across the water.Authorities dont know yet how the spill willaffect the environment.Diesel, being lighter than water, will float on the surface until it is weathered or mixed,Ž Lyons said. This nega-tively affects birds or other animals that may come to the surface of the water looking for food.ŽThe cause of thespill is unknown, butLyons said spills often stem from human error or mechan-ical malfunctions.Diesel spill fouls Destin Harbor

On the westernmost edge of the Deltona Plaza, between a diner and a real estate office is the new home of Surterra Wellness.Painted in warm grays, the office has an open kitchen with an island countertop and large, comfortable chairs. It easily could be the waiting room for a spa. The merchandise, purposefully displayed in the window, is hardly a tip-off to whats inside.The medical marijuana dispensary is one of 28 now operating under Floridas legalized system to provide access to the drug. Surterra Wellness, which will open in Deltona later this month, is the second dis-pensary in Volusia County. Trulieve, which has the most retail dispensaries in the state, opened in Edgewater in June.Its only the tip of the spear. Although slow at first, Floridas expanded system for legalized can-nabis is taking shape after voters overwhelmingly supported a constitutional amendment in November 2016. The states 13 licensed marijuana treatment providers can open up to 25 retail locations each and many of them have barely started.Florida has 83,000 registered patients today. Once the number hits 100,000, the state is expected to license another four providers. That would be more than 400 retail dispensaries scattered across the state. The ramp up is happening, industry insiders say, and medical marijuana „ in case there was any doubt „ is coming to a neighbor-hood near you.Its still in the learning phase. I expect the demand to go way up,Ž said Pete Sessa, founder of the Florida Cannabis Coali-tion, which helps medical marijuana entrepreneurs operate in the state. The challenge is going to be for the dispensaries to be able to meet that demand.ŽEarly projections sug-gest there is a market of at least 500,000 Floridians who could benefit from medical marijuana. The chief task for providers will be figuring out where those customers are. The largest metropolitan areas „ South Florida, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Orlando „ are easy targets. Patients already are willing to travel to far away counties if necessary, but many say the market could benefit from some competition to bring down the price.Surterra, like some other companies, has plotted out the goal of opening a loca-tion in every metro area in the state,Ž said Wesley Reynolds, the companys Florida president.Were looking for places that will be conve-nient for the patients that will need our medicine,Ž Reynolds said. Were looking for places with high concentrations of folks that are looking for medical marijuana solu-tions and places where we can be close to the doctors who are treating those patients.ŽDispensaries are the backbone but hardly make up the entire industry. They rely on doctors who have not fully embraced the idea and risks associ-ated with using marijuana as medicine. And increas-ingly the middlemen who help patients apply for a card if finding a doctors office is too difficult.There are about 1,000 doctors licensed to recommend marijuana for medicinal use. However, Sessa of the Florida Cannabis Coalition said the organization has found through phone surveys that only a fraction are actually seeing patients.There arent many. Its just a matter of being able to find them,Ž Sessa said. I had to build a whole website ... because you cant use the registry because you have 1,000 people on there and about 80 percent of them arent recommending.ŽTo fill the void, youll find places like the storefront on South Spring Garden Avenue in DeLand. The sign reads Certified Marijuana DoctorsŽ next to the picture of a cannabis leaf. But its not a doctors office in a tradi-tional sense.Physicians currently rotate from other locations in Tampa and Longwood, said David Winterose, a marketing manager for the business.In this office, because were so new and were still building the clientele, we dont have the doctor here full-time with us because we just dont have enough people,Ž Winterose said. In some offices we do.ŽSome physicians have seen legalization as an opportunity worthy of more than fleeting attention. As a full-time radiation oncologist, Dr. Johnny Bernard Jr.started recommending marijuana for patients in June. Hes now booked until April and has a roster of about 500 patients, he said.I see so many people out here who could be off these prescription medica-tions that cause a lot of side effects for them and some-times they dont work,Ž Bernard said. Theyre still taking it because their doctors said to take them.ŽUnlike many doctors, Bernard opened a separate practice for medical marijuana with offices in Daytona Beach and Palm Coast where he worked nights and weekends. In May, Bernard, who runs the medical marijuana practice with his wife, said he plans to start working with those patients full time.Green rush with Deltona dispensary, medical pot coming to main streetJohn Preptit will manage Surterra Wellness medical marijuana dispensary in Deltona.

Senate leaders agreed to the data collection proposal, which had cleared the House last month.Its important at all times to be evaluating our criminal justice system to make sure that there arent biases and prejudices and other things that we dont want to happen in our criminal justice system,Ž Negron said Friday. And the best way to determine that is to get actual information and data and research to make sure that were treating everyone fairly regardless of their racial background, theyre edu-cation, income.ŽThe legislation now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for approval.Under the proposal, various records stored by court clerks, state attorneys, public defenders, jail operators and law enforcement will be cen-tralized and the results will be published through a new database updated weekly.The data enhancements come on the heels of more than years of reporting by the Herald-Tribune on racial disparities in crimi-nal sentencing.Those investigations … Bias on the benchŽ and One War. Two RacesŽ … found when a black and white defendant commit the same crime under similar circumstances, Florida courts sentence the black offender to far longer in lockup on aver-age. The disparities are exacerbated in the war on drugs.The newspapers reporting also showed the states current criminal justice data collection is flawed, fractured and rife with errors.Here lies the importance of the fourth estate,Ž Larry Eger, public defender for Sarasotas 12th Circuit, said previ-ously. Its fallen on deaf ears for so long ƒ and now you see the impact.ŽUnder the new requirement, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will begin publishing data from every step … arrest and bail proceedings to sentencing … on its website and update those results weekly. It would also include basic information on offenders, like age and race.The idea is to allow the public to track a defendants experience in the system start to finish and compare it with others. The website would launch in 2019.Well get some really good information to be able to tell whether we have issues and be able to address those issues,Ž Negron said.The measure also calls for the state to digitize the criminal punishment codes sentencing scoresheets. The form is used by the courts to ensure consistency in sentencing, with a point-scoring system that calculates recommended sentences based on the severity of the crime, the defendants prior record and a host of other factors. As a pilot, Floridas 6th Circuit Court of Pinellas and Pasco counties will work with a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organiza-tion to help compile and report the data.Lawmakers and justice system experts have praised the new legislation as a way to improve the publics access to the criminal justice system „ ultimately bolstering consistency and fairness. They say the first step toward reforming the system is identifying failures through accurate data. House Speaker Richard Corcoran, a Republican from Land OLakes, called the bipartisan measure a game-changer.ŽA similar data bill inspired by the Herald-Tribune failed to advance through either the House or Senate in 2017.This legislation would make Florida a model for effective, data-driven criminal justice and create the gold standard for the rest of the country,Ž said Rep.

Moments later, Woods raised the putter in his left hand as another birdie putt dropped for a share of the lead at the Valspar Championship.Corey Conners heard the whole round and it made him smile.Never mind that Con-ners had six birdies in his round of 3-under 68 for a one-shot lead Saturday as he tries for his first PGA Tour victory. Even the players trying to beat Woods got swept up in the emotions of seeing him closer than ever to having a chance to win again.I can confirm hes back. The roars are back,Ž said Brandt Sne-deker, who was along for the ride with Woods and matched his 67. Its fun to hear the crowd going crazy again and realize how excited we are in having him back out here and play the way he is. Hes playing great.ŽConners, the Canadian rookie in only his 17th start on the PGA Tour as a pro, saved par from the bunker on the par-3 17th and kept his cool when his ball moved slightly on the 18th green „ no longer a penalty in those circumstances „ before he tapped in for par. He was at 9-under 204 and will play with Justin Rose (66), who joined Woods and Snedeker at one shot behind. For the second straight day, Woods and his thousands upon thousands of fans will be ahead of him.So he at least knows what to expect.I kind of knew what was going on without even having to see it,Ž Conners said. But it will be cool. Its fun seeing him out there today, and Im sure hell be battling hard tomorrow. But hopefully, I can play my game and have a good day.ŽConners smiled when he heard the cheer for Woods when he chipped in at No. 9.For so many years, such a roar caused far more consternation than cele-bration among the rest of the field. Conners grew up idolizing Woods for his 14 majors and 79 victories on the PGA Tour, and it was hard not to get caught up in so much hysteria.Conners still settled himself with a wedge he nearly holed on No. 9 for a birdie of his own.Woods looked as though he might seize control after his birdie on No. 10 to reach 8 under, tied for the lead.He hit wedge into 7 feet below the hole on the par-5 11th, and another roar erupted. Woods missed.Approaching the 12th, where four small grandstands covered by tents and a large grandstand to the right of the green were filled with fans who were looking for reasons to let loose. Anything on the green would have suf-ficed, and Woods played it beyond the pin and used the slope to get the ball rolling back to 8 feet.At this point, the gallery was so delirious they couldnt sync up their chants. Some were yelling, Tiger! Tiger!Ž Others were yelling, U-S-A!Ž Most were just screaming. And then Woods missed again.

** The News Herald | Sunday, March 11, 2018 C3 By Kevin BrockwayStaff writerST. LOUIS„ Another season. Another early exit for Florida in the SEC Tournament.For the second straight year, the No. 23 Gators were unable to take advantage of a double bye in the event. Behind 27 points from senior guard Jaylen Barford, six-seed Arkansas knocked off the third-seeded Gators 80-72 on Friday at the Scot-trade Center.Florida hasnt reached the semifinals of the SEC Tournament since 2014, the year the Gators last won the event. Playing on a six-day layoff, Florida looked rusty at times and reverted to taking questionable shots and enduring defensive lapses.Sometimes it can be a good thing, sometimes it can be a bad thing,Ž Florida senior point guard Chris Chiozza said. I guess it was a bad thing for us. We had a good flow going, we were really getting after it on the defensive end. The time off, we thought itwould be better, more fresher getting a couple of guys back that had bumps and bruises. It was the opposite. We came out low on energy.ŽNow, the Gators will await Selection Sunday to find out their seed and NCAA Tournament destination. At 20-12, Florida could drop to a 6 or 7 seed due to the early exit. But UFs 10 Quadrant 1 wins will weigh heavily in the discussion as to where UF is seeded. The loss snapped UFs three-game win streak and an eight-game win streak against the Razorbacks that dated back to 2013.We were coming off the best stretch of perfor-mances that we put together all year and tonight we took a step backward,Ž Florida coach Mike White said. Weve got to find a way to get home and regroup and find our mojo, get back to where we were playing our last three games.ŽAfter a layup by Florida freshman guard Mike Okauru cut Arkansas lead to 50-48 with 10:00 left, the Razorbacks took control of the game with a 12-0 run. Barford scored six points during the run, including a 3-pointer that put the Razorbacks up 62-48 with 5:04 left.Redshirt sophomore forward Keith Stone led three UF scorers in double figures with 22 points. Chi-ozza added 16 points andsix assists, becoming the 54th player in UF history to reach 1,000 career points. But guards Jalen Hudson and Egor Koulechov struggled, going a combined 4 of 20 from the floor.Florida got off to a hot start, making four of its first seven shots from the field andthree of its firstfive 3-point attempts. Backto-back 3-pointers from Chiozza and Koulechov and a driving layup from Stone gave Florida an early 18-10 lead.But Arkansas charged back, cutting UFs lead to 21-20 on a 3-pointer by Barford that clanged off both the backboard and rim before falling through the basket.From there, Florida regrouped, going back up 29-23 on a 3-pointer by Okauru with 4:54 left in the first half. It would be UFs last basket of the first half. Florida missed its final attempts from the field and were whistled for two shot clock violations in some ugly halfcourt sets. Overall, Florida had three shot-clock violations in the first half.Arkansas took advantage, closing the half on an 8-0 run to take a 30-29 lead into halftime.

[JEFF ROBERSON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Arkansas bounces No. 23 Florida from SEC tourneyWe were coming o the best stretch of performances that we put together all year and tonight we took a step backward. Weve got to nd a way to get home and regroup and nd our mojo, get back to where we were playing our last three games.ŽFlorida coach Mike White The Associated PressMIAMI „ James Johnson scored 20 points, Wayne Ellington added 17 and the Miami Heat ran away in the third quarter to beat the Washington Wizards 129-102 on Saturday night.Tyler Johnson, Josh Rich-ardson, Rodney McGruder and Kelly Olynyk all scored 13 for the Heat, who never trailed and outscored Washington 43-28 in the third. That was Miamis highest-scoring quarter in a regular-season contest since Oct. 30, 2013 „ 394 games ago.Dwyane Wade got the 8,000th field goal of his career in the first half, but left less than a minute into the fourth quar-ter with what was diagnosed as a mild left hamstring strain. The Heat have a six-hour flight to Portland on Sunday, in advance of a game there Monday.Jodie Meeks scored 23 for the Wizards, whose five-game winning streak was snapped. Bradley Beal scored 14 for Wash-ington, which was outscored 76-42 in the paint „ even on a night where Heat center Hassan Whiteside couldnt play because of hip pain and his replacement, Bam Adebayo, was limited with foul trouble.Washington was within 46-44 with 3:51 left in the second quarter, and from there it was all Heat. Over the next 16 minutes, Miami outscored the Wizards 71-35. It was Miamis 11th consecu-tive game scoring at least 100 points, tying the third-longest such streak in team history.Miami (36-31) carved out a split of the four-game season series with Washington, plus got within two games of the Wizards (38-29) in the Eastern Conference playoff race. A loss on Saturday and the Heat chances of catching the Wizards would have taken a serious hit „ since they would have been four games down and with no hope of winning a tiebreaker.HORNETS 122, SUNS 115: Dwight Howard had 30 points and 12 rebounds, Nic Batum ” irted with a triple-double as Charlotte held on to beat Phoenix 122-115. Batum added 29 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists and Marvin Williams chipped in with 16 points as the Hornets wrapped up a three-game homestand. It was Howards second straight 30-point game for the Hornets and it marked his 18th game with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds, eighthmost in the NBA. Daniels had 17 points and Bender had 16 for the Suns (19-49), who have lost 11 of their last 12.Balanced Heat torch Wizards at home The Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. „ Devonte Graham ripped off the shooting sleeve he was wearing and tossed it into the crowd, then took the two-time Big 12 defensive player of the year baseline for a pullup jumper. Talk about unflappable. Unstoppable, too.The leagues player of the year finished with 18 points and 13 assists, most of them during the decisive second half, and Graham led ninthranked Kansas to an 81-70 victory over Jevon Carter and No. 18 West Virginia in the Big 12 Tournament championship game Saturday night.Malik Newman added 20 points on his way to tournament MVP, and freshman Silvio De Sousa had 16 points on 8-for-8 shooting in place of injured big man Udoka Azubuike, lifting the Jayhawks (27-7) to their 11th tournament title and a likely No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.It was the second time in three years theyve beaten West Virginia (24-10) for the championship.We just locked on and starting plays and kept competing, and it was just fun. It was fun to be out there,Ž Graham said with a smile. It helped that we were able to make shots.ŽModest understatement there. The Jayhawks shot 72 percent from the field in the second half, and 56 percent for the game, while going 15 of 27 from beyond the 3-point arc.They have a lot of guys who can make shots,Ž West Vir-ginia coach Bob Huggins said. Lets be honest, all of those guys out there, if theyre not McDonalds All-Americans its because theyre from another country. They have good players and their guy can coach, you know?ŽDaxter Miles Jr. hit five 3s and had 25 points to lead West Virginia, which has lost the last three Big 12 title games. Sagaba Konate added 18 points while Carter, the best defender in the league, finished with 17 points and nine assists.West Virginia still has not won a postseason league tournament since the Big East in 2010.They just did a real good job of knocking down shots,Ž Carter said. Seemed like every shot they put up, it went in. When we went cold, they kept hitting.ŽNo. 2 VILLANOVA 76, PROVIDENCE 66, OT: Mikal Bridges scored 25 points and hit two 3-pointers in overtime to lift No. 2 Villanova to a 76-66 win over Providence in the Big East Tournament championship game Saturday night. The Wildcats (30-4) won their second straight Big East Tournament and third in four years (losing in the 2016 “ nal). They put the bow on a fantastic season that should have them earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Villanova had rolled to a pair of dominant victories in the tourney and held off a pesky Providence team that played its third straight overtime game. No. 8 CINCINNATI 70, MEMPHIS 60: Jarron Cumberland scored 18 points and Gary Clark had 17 points and 12 rebounds to help Cincinnati rally from a 13-point halftime de“ cit against Memphis, a day after the Bearcats overcame a six-point secondhalf de“ cit to beat SMU in the quarter“ nals. Kyle Washington added 11 for the Bearcats, who advanced to play the winner of the Houston-Wichita State game later Saturday. Jamal Johnson led Memphis with 17 points, but he didnt score in the second half, when the Tigers wilted under intense defensive pressure from Cincinnati. No. 21 HOUSTON 77, No. 11 WICHITA STATE 74: Rob Gray had a key steal and scored 33 points, including two free throws with 5 seconds remaining, as No. 21 Houston held off Wichita State 77-74 in an American Athletic Conference Tournament semi“ nal on Saturday. Corey Davis Jr. scored 19 points for the Cougars (26-6), who advanced to play No. 8 Cincinnati in the championship game. Landry Shamet led Wichita State (25-7) with 19 points while Shaquille Morris had 12, including 10 in the “ nal seven minutes to keep the game close.Kansas rolls past West Virginia for Big 12 tourney title

** The News Herald | Sunday, March 11, 2018 C5By Beth HarrisThe Associated PressARCADIA, Calif. „ olt dOro won the $400,000 San Felipe Stakes after even-money favorite McKinzie was disqualified for interference in heavy drizzle at Santa Anita on Saturday.Bolt dOro and McKinzie hooked up through the stretch, with McKinzie poking his head in front at the wire.But a stewards inquiry was posted immediately. Bolt dOros jockey, Javier Castel-lano, lodged an objection, too.Video replays showed McK-inzie, on the inside under Mike Smith, bumping Bold dOro on the outside into the stretch and then lugging in in deep stretch.McKinzie keep coming out, keep coming out. He bump it, bump it, bump it. A light bump, but still he intimidated my horse,Ž said Castellano, who was on Bolt dOro in a race for the first time.The three stewards were unanimous in their ruling on the DQ and placed McKinzie second.I am shocked, after the way he hit us in the top of the stretch,Ž said Bob Baffert, who trains McKinzie. Javier, he should have been a lawyer. I dont know what theyre look-ing at, but apparently he talked them into it. Thats why they should never talk to the jockey and just watch it themselves.ŽDarrel McHargue, chief steward of the California Horse Racing Board, said video of the first bump at the top of the stretch was inconclusive as to which horse initiated the contact. He said the second bump inside the sixteenth pole was clear and showed McKinzie drifting out under Smiths left-handed whip and shifting Bolt dOro out of his path, which cost him a better placement. Smith disagreed.I was just trying to ride my own race and he was on top of me,Ž the Hall of Fame jockey said. At the quarter pole, after the quarter pole and through the lane he hit me and turned me out. I mean, hes got the whole racetrack and hes on top of me on the fence. I didnt feel that I did anything.ŽBaffert and McKinzies connections were already in the winners circle when they had to wait out the inquiry that lasted at least 10 minutes. When McKinzie was DQd, they cleared out and Bolt dOros own er-trainer Mick Ruis and his group moved in to begin a soggy celebration.I wasnt even thinking about the inquiry the whole time,Ž Ruis said. I was just so proud of Bolt, and if he got moved up, he did. This wasnt the race we were really point-ing for. We want to go to the Santa Anita Derby, but get-ting moved up is awesome.ŽBolt dOro earned 50 points in the system used by Churchill Downs to determine the 20-horse field for the Kentucky Derby. That moves the colt to the top of the standings with a total of 64 points. McKinzie earned 20 points and is sixth with 40 points.The winner ran 1 ‡ miles in 1:42.71.Sent off at 6-5 odds, Bolt dOro paid $4.40, $2.60 and $2.20. The colts only loss came in the Breeders Cup Juvenile last year at Del Mar.McKinzie returned $2.40 and $2.10 in his first loss, while Kanthaka was another 6 lengths back in third and paid $2.60 to show.Peace was fourth, followed by Ayacara, Aquila and Lombo.Bolt dOro and McKinzie were expected to renew their budding rivalry in the Santa Anita Derby on April 7.Bolt dOro wins San Felipe after McKinzie disquali edThe Associated PressSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. „ With two weeks left of spring training, the Arizona Diamondbacks are grappling with a pair of sig-nificant unresolved issues.One, who is the closer? Two, how to sort out the crowd at middle infield?There still is plenty of time to work things out, manager Torey Lovullo said.I feel like its still a little bit too early,Ž he said, but everybody is paying a lot of attention to some very key spots and you hit on a couple of them.ŽThe closer competition a three-way competition with Archie Bradley, Brad Boxberger and Yoshihisa Hirano. Bradley, the bearded fan favorite, was one of the games best setup men last season with a 1.73 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 73 innings pitched. Boxberger had an AL-leading 41 saves in 2015 but battled injuries the past two seasons. Hirano arrived from Japan a 33-year-old seasoned closer.Bradley insists he doesnt want the job.Really not at all, and not in a bad way. Im not scared of it,Ž he said. I just want to win. I found so much fun and success in my role last year that it kind of taught me whatever the situation is, lets just roll with it. I dont need the title save to feel accomplished. I just want to win ballgames.ŽBut, of course, Bradley will willingly accept the job.The role is kind of up in the air,Ž he said. Theres a lot that has to play out on both sides. Guys have to stay healthy, guys have to continue to throw the ball well and hopefully that last week well be able to kind of slide stuff in place and really set up how were going to pitch for the season.ŽBradley threw two shut-out innings and got the win Friday against the Royals. The team has indicated a desire to have him throw more than one inning.Lovullo likes the open competition.I think its that type of competitive atmosphere that were watching these guys operate in every single day and theyve been suc-cessful,Ž Lovullo said. Theyre all throwing the ball well. Were doing our jobs offensively and defen-sively. That creates some tough conversations for the staff to have.ŽA vacancy opened at second base, and backup at third, when Arizona sent Brandon Drury to the New York Yankees in a threetame trade that brought outfielder Steven Souza Jr. from Tampa.Daniel Descalso played second frequently, especially late last season, and can play any other spot, too. Chris Owings, like Descalso, is being counted on as a do-everything util-ity infield player. So that could mean regular stints at second base for Ketel Marte to allow slick-fielding Nick Ahmed to play shortstop. You see C.O (Owings) and myself bounce around a little bit,Ž Descalso said. Ketels playing some second. Obviously, Nick is as good a shortstop as there is in the big leagues. So its probably nice for the man-ager to be able to plug guys in different spots.ŽMarte had a strong season filling in for the injured Ahmed and Owings at shortstop last season and said he has no problem moving to second. He was at shortstop on Saturday but said he had started three other games at second.Shortstop, Marte said, is the hardest position on the field. If you can play shortstop, youre going to be good anywhere.ŽOn Friday, Lovullo had Descalso in place of Jake Lamb at third, Ahmed at shortstop and Owings at second.The crowd up the middle is a plus, not a minus, Lovullo said. I feel like we have a very, very deep team that is show-ing up every single day,Ž the manager said. Were going to have some tough decisions to make down the road. We know that.ŽD-backs face decisions at closer, middle in eldOn the day the Kansas City Royals welcomed back Mike Moustakas, they found out Jorge Bonifacio will miss half the season.Bonifacio was suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball on Saturday after testing positive for a perfor-mance-enhancing substance.The outfielder was banned after a positive test for Bold-enone. The ban will begin on opening day."It really kind of made me sick to my stomach,Ž Royals manager Ned Yost said. The 24-year-old Bonifacio made his major league debut last season, hitting .255 with 17 home runs and 40 RBIs in 113 games.Bonifacios suspension cleared a roster spot for Moustakas, who re-signed with the Royals this week after becoming a free agent last fall.Moustakas set a Royals record with 38 home runs last season, then rejected a $17.4 million offer from the team. But the third baseman never received the multiyear, mega-million dollar contract he and his agent Scott Boras anticipated.The Royals signed Mousta-kas to a one-year $6.5 million contract with a mutual option for 2019. He can make another $2.2 million in incen-tives this year based on plate appearances. ASTROS 2, NATIONALS 2, 9 INNINGSHouston starter Dallas Keuchel allowed one hit in 3 ‡ innings, striking out five. Jose Altuve went 0 for 3 but stole his first base. Washing-ton managed only two hits „ singles by Bryce Harper and Ryan Raburn „ until the ninth.

** C6 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News Herald SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFSAN DIEGOEnberg remembered for long career, catchphraseScreenwriter Bobby Herbeck was watching the Golf Channel recently when some highlights from some late 1990s broadcasts came on, including a few punctuated by the trademark catchphrase of his pal Dick Enberg „ Oh, my!ŽHes not gone. Hes still here,Ž Herbeck told the crowd at a celebration of life service Saturday for Enberg, who died of a heart attack on Dec. 21 at 82. Thats the beauty of this. Olympics, baseball, Super Bowls, you name it, he did it.ŽEnberg was fondly remembered by former broadcasting partners, athletes and friends on a drizzly morning at Petco Park, the downtown home of the San Diego Padres. Enberg spent the last seven years of his long, decorated career as the TV voice of the Padres from 2010-16.He was a true sports icon,Ž Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler said from the stage near second base. My view of Dick was he was truly a man for all seasons, figuratively and literally. He did all sports. Dick was known as a world-class sports broadcaster. He was in a class by him-self. I followed him all the time. I didnt care what he was doing.ŽDENVEREx-Colorado gov., Boston activist back Olympic voteThe former Colorado governor behind Denvers historic snubbing of the Olympics and the man who spearheaded the effort to stop Boston from hosting the Olym-pics think Colorado voters should be able to weigh in on whether Denver should host the Winter Games. Speaking at a commu-nity forum on Denvers consideration of a possi-ble 2030 bid on Saturday, former Gov. Dick Lamm said democracies make up their minds by voting and said lawmakers should put a referendum on the ballot this fall.Lets vote,Ž Lamm, part of a newly formed Olympic opposition group, told the crowd of about 200.No Boston Olympics co-chair Chris Dempsey also said Colorado voters should have a referendum, adding the International Olympic Committee hates them.ŽCOLUMBIA, MO.Missouri player arrested on suspicion of DWIMissouri forward Jordan Barnett has been arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.The Missouri University Police Department says Barnett was arrested early Saturday. The report indicated Barnett failed to drive within a single lane.School spokesman Patrick Crawford says the athletic department is aware of the arrest but has made no comment.Missouri (20-12) is expected to be selected for the NCAA Tournament on Sunday. The Associated PressBy Pat Eaton-RobbThe Associated PressThe combination was too much for UConn: an NCAA investigation and a second straight losing season.All of which left coach Kevin Ollie out of a job. He was fired Saturday four years after leading the Huskies to the NCAA title.The university said in a statement it has initiated disciplinary proceduresŽ and is dismissing him for just cause.Ž The school says it would have no further com-ment until its disciplinary process and the NCAA inquiry are complete. The scope of the investigation is not clear. Our goal, above all, is to ensure we have a program that UConn Nation can be proud of, including our students, alumni, fans and all our committed supporters,Ž said Susan Herbst, the university president.Athletic director David Benedict said it was unfortunate that this decision became necessary.Ž He added that the team must be held to the highest standardsŽ and a search for a new coach begins immediately.Ollie was in the second year of a five-year deal valued at $17.9 million that was signed amid reports he was a candidate for several NBA jobs. He is not owed the remainder of his contract if fired for just cause, which includes serious NCAA violations. Ollie spent six seasons at UConn and was an assistant under Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun on the 2011 NCAA title team. The team went 14-18 this season, including 7-11 in the American Athletic Conference. Ollies career record at UConn is 127-79.He played point guard for Calhoun from 1991-95 and played 13 seasons in the NBA before joining the UConn staff in 2010. He was his former coachs hand-picked successor. Ollie guided the team to a 20-win season in his first year as coach, even though the program had been declared academically ineligible for postseason play. UConn was a seventh seed in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. It made an improbable six-game run, culminating with a 60-54 in over Kentucky in the national championship game. The Huskies went 20-15 the following season, losing in the NIT and bounced back with a 25-11 season in 2015-16, losing in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

[MORRY GASH/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] A er Olympic win, Chloe Kim puts fame, fun in perspectiveBy Eddie PellsThe Associated PressVAIL, Colo. „ In between the dozens of media appearances that have suddenly become her new day job, Chloe Kim slipped away from the lunch table, disappeared into the restroom, pulled the gold medal out of her bag ... and just sat there and stared at it.My parents were like, Why did it take you so long?Ž Kim said. I said, Just looking at it. I was thinking about what this means to me and letting it sink in.ŽThree weeks since the 17-year-old transformed her-self from a mere snowboarding sensation into a full-fledged celebrity, Kim concedes she never realized what a big deal her victory would be.Shes just as in touch with the idea that shes not really sure what to make of it yet, either.I dont think youre supposed to know how to feel,Ž she said in the lead-up to the Burton U.S. Open, where, on Saturday, shell go for one of the most prestigious halfpipe titles this side of the Olympics. Its something Id been work-ing on for so long that when it happened, it was, What do I do now? What am I supposed to do with my life now?ŽIn that respect, shes not unlike the 100-or-so champions who emerge from the Winter Olympics every four years „ niche-sports stars who suddenly find themselves with mainstream cred.But Kims backstory „ her folks were born and raised in South Korea, which just happened to be hosting the Olympics „ to say nothing of her once-in-a-generation talent and her made-for-Ins-tagram personality transcends beyond that of the typical gold medalist.Its why, since her goldmedal run in Pyeongchang, she has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated, been on set with Jimmy Fallon and James Corden, and had her face splashed on the front of a Corn Flakes box. Its why, within the last six days, shes received a shout-out from Frances McDormand during the best actress acceptance speech at the Oscars, and also had a Barbie doll fashioned after her as part of a line of Inspiring WomenŽ that also includes Amelia Earhart.Really rad,Ž Kim said, before revealing this awkward truth about herself and Barbie dolls. I personally didnt play with dolls much. I was more into doll animals. I had a giant (stuffed) horse in my room. But I always walked by them in the store and thought they were super cool.ŽWith that disarming blend of authenticity and charm, its no wonder the sponsors are as drawn to her as her fans.Since she left South Korea, Kims following on Instagram „ and, yes, she keeps track „ has doubled once again, to 753,000 and counting. Mean-while, going out on the street, or going out to eat, has become more of a challenge.I can still go to a restaurant, you just turn a lot more heads,Ž Kim says. But I hate it when people watch me eat. I literally eat like a lizard.ŽKim got into snowboarding because she loved snowboard-ing. Becoming famous was not part of that plan, and she says theres a downside to it, as well.Over the past month, she has been hounded by paparazzi: TMZ was outside my hotel. I wasnt expecting it at all,Ž she said. And she has seen the less-than-inspiring messages from people who question her American-ness because of her Asian heritage.It hurt to hear that,Ž she said. At the same time, it feels good to represent Asian Americans who deal with that and its good to see the true fans who defend me and say, She won a medal for America. Would you rather she did it for Korea?ŽIn the lead-up to the Olympics, Kim came off, at least publicly, as much more scripted than she is now „ not all that unexpected given her age and the journey she was embarking on. Something changed, beginning with her engaging, hilarious news con-ference after the gold medal, in which she called out her dad for his seeming lack of emotion after her win: My dad didnt cry, which I dont get at all. Im like, What are you doing?Ž she said. She claims to have done 600 interviews and become so deft at the craft that I can definitely have a 17-year-old answer, and I can have a 35-year-old answer.ŽOne of the 35-year-old answersŽ had to do with the unexpected ups and downs of becoming more famous than she ever imagined.It had to do with the first time she ever saw an avocado.I didnt want to eat it, but I ate it and it was amazing,Ž she said. Thats kind of how I felt with fame. Some of it does kind of suck. One person screams your name, people come running at you and you cant go where you want. But at the same time, you get to make those people happy, listen to their stories. I think thats important. You meet really rad people who love what you do and have the same passion as you.ŽLetting it sink inConnecticut head coach Kevin Ollie was “ red Saturday. He was in the second year of a “ ve-year deal. Ollie was the handpicked successor to Jim Calhoun. [JESSICA HILL/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO]

** The News Herald | Sunday, March 11, 2018 C7 The News HeraldPENSACOLA „ Two days after being upstaged by Pensacolas bullpen in a loss at Bill Frazier Field, Peyton Knight and Gulf Coast held sway on the road for a 5-4 win in 10 innings on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader.It didnt take long for Alec Aleywine to pick up on that theme, at the plate and on the mound, as the Commodores prevailed 3-0 in the second game to end their initial four-game series of the Panhandle Conference season with three wins.That left them tied with Chipola at 3-1 in the conference. Northwest Florida is 0-0, not starting conference play until this week and Tallahassee and Pensacola are tied for fourth at 1-3. Tallahassee and Chipola split a dou-bleheader on Saturday.Gulf Coast pushed across a run in the 10th on two hits and a Pensacola error to finally prevail in the opener. The Commo-dores, 15-9, led 4-3 until the Pirates scored a run off starter Brett Wisely in the bottom of the sixth inning. That brought on Knight in the seventh and he held Pensacola score-less to force extra innings.The Pirates, 13-14, went to Aaron Ginn to start the eighth. Ginn pitched three scoreless innings to close out Wednesdays 9-7 win in Panama City in which he dominated the Com-modores lineup.This time he worked out of a bases loaded, two-out situation in the eighth by retiring Josh Nowak. Gulf Coast got Wisely as far as second with two outs in the ninth, and again Ginn prevailed by getting Malik Spratling to end the inning.But Knight was just as resilient. The Pirates loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the ninth. Knight got a force out at the plate with Griffin Rivers batting, and retired Wilfredo Alvarez to douse the threat.Ben Rowdon had his third hit of the game in the ninth to go with two runs batted in. Jacquez Koonce had two hits and two RBIs and Corey Heffron two hits. Jake Rulli had two hits for Pensacola.Most importantly for Gulf Coast, Knight threw four shutout innings and struck out four while allowing only two hits. Jeff Omohundro also had a hit and RBI for the Commodores.Aleywine started the second game for Gulf Coast against Alex Tyson for the Pirates.Koonce and Wisely opened Gulf Coasts first inning with singles. One out later that brought up Aleywine, who had stranded seven baserunners on Wednesday in his worst offensive game of the season. This time he responded with a three-run home run for an early lead.The sophomore lefthander also went the distance on the mound, tossing a four-hit shut-out with eight strikeouts. It remained 3-0 through five innings as Tyson settled down despite allowing 10 hits. The Pirates didnt get a hit of Aleywine until Malique Foreman singled to lead off their fifth. Aleywine had first and third with one out but avoided trouble.Alvarez, Nemith and Foreman all singled with two outs in the sixth to load the bases, and again Aleywine prevailed with the tying run on base. He pitched a routine seventh to nail down the sweep.Spratling had four hits for Gulf Coast, Koonce three and Wisely two as Tyson gutted out six innings while allowing 11 hits. Foreman led the Pirates with two hits, Louis Davenport coming on to pitch the seventh.Gulf Coast resumes con-ference play when it hosts Tallahassee 5 p.m. Tuesday in the opener of another four-game series.SOFTBALLGC still hotNICEVILLE „ Gulf Coast won its 24th and 25th consecutive games on Friday in the Jimmie Stewart Memorial Tour-nament being hosted by Northwest Florida State.The Lady Commodores, 25-1, defeated Lurleen Wallace 10-2 and edged Wabash Valley 4-3. They continued tournament play with two more games on Saturday against Wallace Dothan and Louisiana State University-Eunice.Gulf Coast has a grand opening for the new Joe Tom King Field on Monday in a doubleheader against Carl Sandberg starting at 5 p.m. The Lady Commodores opened play there recently winning four games in a round-robin tournament, and also swept Lake Michigan 2-1, 14-1 on Tuesday.Commodores sweep, tie for rst in PCBy John NicholsonThe Associated PressAVONDALE, Ariz. „ Kevin Harvick left every-one else behind the last two weeks in Atlanta and Las Vegas. He figures to be even harder to beat Sunday at ISM Raceway, the mile oval in the foothills out-side Phoenix where he has a record eight victories.Trying to become the first driver to win three straight NASCAR Cup races since Joey Logano in 2015, Harvick topped the speed charts for both practice sessions Saturday. Fittingly, the 2014 season champions No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford has a Jimmy Johns Freaky Fast!Ž paint scheme.When things are going good, you need to hammer it home,Ž Harvick said. Lets just keep pushing things forward and try not to stumble along the way and screw up whats going on. To me, it feels a lot like 2014, except now youve got a team with five years of experience, and thats pretty scary.Ž Yes, it is.In Atlanta, we kind of chalked it up to Kevin being probably the best driver at Atlanta and we just thought it was Atlanta and he is typically fast there,Ž said Logano, the 2016 Phoenix fall winner. Vegas was one of those things where we all thought, Wow, maybe it wasnt just Atlanta. Phoenix has always been a good track for him as well. It takes a few weeks to realize where you stand. I think we are in good shape so far, but I do think that he is a solid step in front of everybody right now.ŽHarvicks victory Sunday in Las Vegas was marred by penalties in part fueled by social media photos of his buckled rear windshield. NASCAR said inspectors at its research and development center in North Carolina found the Ford violated a rule requiring rear window support braces holding the glass rigid and another requiring the right rocker panel extension to be aluminum.On Wednesday, Harvick was penalized the seven playoff points he earned for winning the race and the first two stages. He was docked 20 regular points and the team lost 20 owners points. Crew chief Rodney Childers was fined $50,000, and car chief Robert Smith suspended two races.I cant wait to win another race and jump up and down in victory lane on the back of my car,Ž Har-vick said Friday.Defending series cham-pion Martin Truex Jr. will start from the pole in the No. 78 Toyota. Hendrick Motorsports has the next three spots, with Kyle Larson second, Chase Elliott third and Tucson driver Alex Bowman fourth. Logano will start fifth, and Harvick 10th. Social media helpMatt DiBenedetto added Zynga Poker as the primary sponsor of Go Fas Racings No. 32 Ford for the weekend through a social media posting „ and Denny Hamlins retweet. We hate doing this, but we are UNSPONSORED as of right now for @ ISMRaceway this weekend!Ž DiBenedetto posted along with a video. If you or anyone you know has the ability to help us connect with a business interested in coming on board this weekend please contact the @GoFasRacing32 page ASAP!Enlisted Nine Fight Company and Pit Stops for Hope also signed on.The power of social media can be crazy, and sure enough, it actually blew our minds,Ž DiBene-detto said. Getting the support of Denny Hamlin starting the wave of tre-mendous support and that led into it just spreading like wildfire.ŽHarvick looks to keep on rollingKevin Harvick picked up his second consecutive victory last week in Las Vegas. He will try to make it three in a row Sunday at ISM Raceway in Phoenix. [ISAAC BREKKEN/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] "I thought our defensive performance was pretty special," Gulf Coast coach Roonie Scovel said. "Thats a team that can really score and shoot it, so to hold them in the 50s is a tremendous defensive effort. We didnt shoot it well in the first half tonight, but we made some plays and grinded it out. We pushed it in the second half and got in transition and made some nice plays and hit some nice shots. The whole tournament I thought our ladies were on a mission and we accomplished the mission."It was the third straight lopsided victory in Ocala for the Lady Commodores, who won their opener by 43 points over Broward and Fridays semifinal by 18 over Florida SouthWestern. It didnt seem as though it would come quite so easy for Gulf Coast in the opening few minutes of action Saturday, as the Titans came out on fire with a 10-0 run featuring a pair of 3-pointers by Batz and Victoria Morales to answer an opening basket by Dunlap. However, Gulf Coast immediately put to rest any notion of a brew-ing upset with a 16-0 run to seize control of the game.Dunlap started the run with a basket inside followed by a three-point play on a spinning bank shot in the paint, with a 3-pointer by Dian and an offensive rebound and putback by Astou Gaye putting GC back on top 12-10 with 3:42 left in the first quarter. Another basket inside by Gaye and a pair of driving hoops by Bennett gave the Lady Commodores an 18-10 edge.Meanwhile, Eastern Florida went ice cold from the field and was held scoreless of the final seven minutes of the opening quarter. The Titans finally got back into something of an offensive rhythm early in the second quar-ter, getting a 3-pointer by Batz and a bucket in the paint by Fegue to cut the GC lead to 20-17.The Lady Commodores responded with a 10-3 spurt featuring a 3-pointer from Bennett and a three-point play by Green on a fastbreak layup to push the margin back to 10. The lead was 36-24 at the halftime break, and Gulf Coast gradually built on the lead in the third quarter, getting a short jumper from Dunlap and a 3-pointer from Dian to go up 43-26 with 7:58 on the clock. Another triple from Dian gave Gulf Coast a 53-35 edge, and the Lady Commodores maintained a 16-point margin going into the fourth.A 3-pointer from Keshawn Johnson, a basket inside by Alexus Dye, and a spinning bank shot by Dunlap comprised a 7-0 Gulf Coast run to start the final quarter and increased the lead to 65-42. The Titans couldnt get closer than 20 points for the remaining eight minutes of action.Batz came into Saturday as perhaps the hottest shooter in the tournament after scoring 59 total points on 13 of 23 from the 3-point line in the first two games. She added four more threes Saturday to tie the tournament record, but it was Bennett who was the tournaments best overall player as she continued one of the better sophomore campaigns a Gulf Coast player has had in recent memory.For the tournament, Bennett made 25 of 54 shots from the field, 10 of 21 from the 3-point line, and 20 of 24 from the free throw line to average 26.7 points along with 5.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists. Fellow sophomore Dunlap also had a terrific tourna-ment with three-game averages of 16 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.7 blocks."Shayla has kind of been doing this all year. She didnt just show up in this tournament and start playing like this," Scovel said. "She actually averaged more points in the conference schedule than she did preconference, which is a huge statement when you talk about the Panhandle Conference. She has just gotten better and better and she came down here in the state tournament and scored a lot of points and did a lot of great things for our team."It wasnt just scoring points and making plays on the court. She has been an emotional leader. Both she and Jhileiya did a great job leading the team, and Janesha Green as well. We have a young team, but those sophomores all stepped up and did a great job as leaders."The Lady Commodores will travel to Lubbock, Texas, for the national tournament March 19-24 where they will be seeking their third consecutive national championship. Given its recent form „ 11 straight wins by an aver-age margin of almost 20 points per game „ Gulf Coast has to go in as one of the favorites if not the favorite to do just that.Scovel might not be ready to call her team the favorite, but she said the Lady Commodores recent run of play is reminiscent of great Gulf Coast teams of the past."I would say, for both ends of the floor, this tournament was really special," she said. "We played really good defense. I think since the last round of Panhandle Conference play weve started to really grow and look more like a Gulf Coast team than at any other time of the year. Were really pushing the ball up the floor and playing really good defense and making people uncomfortable."I would say weve got a little momentum, but were getting ready to go to a tournament with a lot of nice teams who are also having great years. But were really excited to be one of the teams going, so well take this time off to get ourselves ready to go see what we can do in Lubbock."EASTERN FLORIDA STATE (57)Worley 2 0-0 6, Lewis 3 5-7 11, Odia 0 0-2 0, Batz 4 0-0 12, Grier 0 0-0 0, Morales 2 0-0 5, Anderson 0 0-0 0, Bady 3 4-6 10, Fegue 5 3-4 13.

INSIDEPets of the Week D3 You Can Help D3 Tracing Pasts D4 Community Connections D4 Society D5 Whats Happening D6 By Frank SargeantSpecial to The News HeraldWith temperatures in the 60s by day and 50s by night, the first part of March should provide ideal fishing conditions for many coastal species across the Panhandle „ and after St. Patrick's Day, the arrival of the migratory species will really pump up the volume for anglers. Cobia actionMarch is the classic month for arrival of cobia in the Panhandle, and with the water temperature off the beaches already in the low 70s, they should be right on schedule this year.The brown torpedoes typically travel anywhere from just outside the second bar to a mile offshore, usu-ally moving east to west in spring. They often swim just below the surface, making them exciting sight-fishing targets.Cobia are sometimes called "crab eaters," and they of course readily grab a small blue crab. But the best bait is often a live eel about 10 to 12 inches long; they're often available at area bait shops during the cobia season in March and March shing action picks up across PanhandlePANAMA CITYLike most professionals today, its not uncommon that I find myself overscheduled, overcommitted, and distracted on a daily basis. I can pass by a construction site for weeks and never notice a new building going up. I also miss some beautiful transitions in my garden and the natural areas that surround me. Recently, my boss recognized our staff was struggling with these tendencies and scheduled a "Resiliency and Mindfulness Training." We grumbled and groaned about another block of time taken away from our busy week, but attendance was mandatory. Nothing like "forced bonding" to enhance morale and productivity, right? Actually, yes! After being instructed to turn off all electronics and being positioned so that it was obvious if you were trying to complete other tasks, I sat listening to the speaker and something clicked. I glanced out the window, saw wisteria and red maples blooming, trees trying to leaf out, and I was reminded why I went into the field of Horticulture and how much I used to enjoy watching the seasons change. When I was an undergrad at Auburn, one of my professors, Dr. Joe Eakes, taught Woody Shrubs and Vines. A recurring EXTENSION CONNECTIONWhats blooming?

The LiveTarget Mullet and Pinfish, both soft plastics, also do well. They're available at Half-Hitch tackle stores, the Bass Pro Shop in Destin and other outlets.The most common tactic for boaters is to get out on the water at daybreak and motor slowly off the beach east to west. This puts the sun at the back of the captain, who usually operates from an elevated command post that allows him to see into the water. When a cobia is spotted, the boat is run in a wide arc around the fish and then allowed to drift as the target swims into cast-ing range.In the afternoons, the boats usually ease along from west to east, again putting the sun behind the anglers for best visibility.Cobia can get huge; the state record „over 130 pounds „ was caught off Destin. Though these giants are rarely seen these days due to fishing pressure, the fish grow fast, and cobia over 40 pounds are not uncommon. For that reason, stout gear is the ticket „ an 8-foot medium-heavy spinning rod will provide lots of distance when paired with a 4000-sized spinning reel and 40to 50-pound-test braid. Most anglers add a couple feet of 50-poundtest mono to stiffen the presentation and prevent the flexible braid from folding back on itself as the bait swims. It's tied in with a double Uni-knot rather than a swivel for ease of casting.The boat limit on cobia in the Gulf has been reduced to two, total, this year in an effort to help the populations rebound after a slump in recent years. Minimum size is 33 inches to the fork, bag limit one per angler. Kings, SpanishRight after the cobia arrive, or sometimes con-currently, Spanish and king mackerel start to show up in area waters. While the cobia tend to travel in pairs or schools ofthree to five, the mack-erels often come in schools of hundreds „ or thousands! And since that's a lot of mouths to feed, they don't show up until the migrating bait schools arrive „ they follow the bait all the way from the Keys as spring progresses up the peninsula. There are usually bluefish mixed in with them early, but the blues thin out as the water warms.For Spanish and blues, a Clark Spoon with red bead head in size 0 or size 1 pretty much tells the tale. Put several of these out a couple feet behind a 1-ounce bead chain sinker and troll at a fast walk and you usually don't need anything else. The fish show up around the inlets first, then move into the larger bays and out along the beaches. Number 1 or 2 wire prevents cutoffs. Anglers who specialize in catching larger Spanish often get them with king mackerel live bait tactics, which we'll see below.School kings can be caught on an upsized ver-sion of the Clark, a size 4, with enough weight to put it down a few feet at 6 knots. Some hook it up behind a number 1 or 2 planer, especially after the morning bite at the surface. A 2-ounce hair jig with a long strip of bonito or mullet belly also does the job for schoolies „ it can be cast into breaking fish, or trolled rapidly. Or, for some real excitement, try tossing a big topwater chugger into breaking fish and working it hard. With luck, you'll see a big king skyrocket higher than your head with the lure in its jaws!Anglers who are after kings over 20 pounds, usually tournament fish-ermen, rely on live bait slow-trolled around inlets, nearshore buoys and other gathering points. Cigar minnows, menhaden, ladyfish and mullet all are good kingfish fodder, with baits 8 to 12 inches long preferred by most. Most fish them on "stinger" rigs, with a single ‡ or larger hook in the lips, a second 3X strong size 4 or 6 treble hooked just under the skin in the back to prevent cutoffs. The hooks are attached with Number 6 wire, and a foot or so of number 6 is also used to create a leader to a swivel.These baits are trolled at 2 to 3 knots along the color breaks at the inlets, shoals and over offshore ledges where jumbo kings often roam. At the piersMarch and April can bring some of the best pier fishing action of the year during a warm spring, with cobia, kings and Spanish all within reach early, and maybe a few tarpon around late if there's some 80-degree weather.Most pier pro's rely on live bait, which can be sabiki-rigged off the piers. The live baits are immedi-ately hooked up on larger rigs and put back over the rail, with best action usu-ally at the far end of the span.When cobia are on the move, the elevated position of the piers gives anglers a great location for spotting the fish and get-ting a bait in front of them. It's a bit more problematic when it comes to landing them, however „ stout 7 to 8 foot spinners, 5000series reels and 60 to 80 pound test braid gives a good shot at handling even the larger fish. A pier net or bridge gaff will also come in handy; someone on the piers usually has one handy and will be happy to help.Spanish and small kings, also readily caught on live bait captured with sabiki's, can be derricked up with the heavy gear without netting, but larger kings will require net or gaff, or walking them all the way back to the beach.The Half-Hitch Piers and tackle shops across the Panhandle provide all the gear you need for this action, and keep their finger on the pulse of the fishery. They know what's biting when and how to catch 'em. Check for the latest at www.halfhitch.com. Sheepshead actionSheepshead spawn in March and April, and it's an opportunity to collect a cooler full of these very tasty fish. While most sheepshead caught the rest of the year will be only a pound or two, those caught during the spawn are sometimes 5 pounds and up, and they have some beautiful fillets on them when they get to this size and larger.The fish spawn on hard structure, typically rock-piles, ledges and artificial reefs in 15 to as much as 100 feet of water. Some also show up to pick at the barnacles on area piers, docks and bridge pilings. They can be seen from the surface in many areas.Fiddler crabs are a can't miss bait, but for those who don't want to go bait-wrangling, freshcut shrimp usually does the job. A size ‡ to ‡ hook and a chunk of shrimp tail about an inch long is right for fish to 3 or 4 pounds „ larger ones can gulp down a whole shrimp tail. They usually bite on bottom, so the bait is weighted. Some anglers do well with a bare jig head with a cut shrimp tail on the hook „ ounce for inshore and bays, heavier for deeper water or more current.The length limit is 12 inches, but that's really too small to get much meat. Those 14 inches and up produce a lot more. The bag limit is a generous 15 per person per day. Sheepshead eat mostly shellfish, shrimp and crabs, and this gives their meat a light, flaky texture that's delicious any way you want to cook it. The big issue with them is their abundance of needle-like spines „ they can be like trying to clean a pincushion.One easy solution is to use kitchen shears to nip all the spines off before starting to fillet. This takes the pain out of the job. Like most fish, they're best if filleted, then skinned. The delicate flavor is great baked; just spray with olive oil, add fresh lemon slices and bake until a fork readily penetrates.

Pre Pi Day PANAMA CITY„ Gulf Coast State Colleges Mathematics Division is hosting Pre Pi Dayat 12:30p.m.Tuesday in the Student Union breezeway to raise funds for GCSCs Commodores Care initiative.Last year, the math instructors sacrificed a few of their own to get "pi"ed, and this year they're expanding the event by including instructors from other divisions. Students, faculty and staff are cast-ing votes for their favorite professors by purchasing $1 Pi tickets in their "honor." Those with the most votes will be pied in the face. In addition, the Student Government Association will be giving out free slices of pie to students.The community is also invited to participate. Donations can be made by contacting Scott Spencer in the Mathematics Divi-sion at 850-769-1551 ext. 3229. Tickets will also be sold in the Commodore Caf during lunch Monday, and there will be a ticket booth in the Student Union breezeway on Tuesday from 10:30 a.m.to 12:30 p.m.For more information, contact Connie Campbell at 850-769-1551 ext. 2812 or ccampbel2@gulfcoast.edu.

[CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] assignment for this course was to keep a Bloom CalendarŽ during the semester. I would walk around campus once a week and fill out my calendar entry which included date, average temperature, scientific name, common name, bloom stage (starting, full, or fading), and flower color. Professor Eakes returned our work and by the end of the semester we had accumulated three months of flower-ing information. This was a peaceful, simple activity that helped to reinforce the identification features we read in our textbooks. I kept up the habit at the conclusion of classes, adding to my notes of when plants were leafing out, fall color, berries and other winter interest characteristics. After college, I wrote a monthly newsletter for the nursery I worked at in Atlanta and included a Whats BloomingŽ section so my customers would know what plants were looking good throughout the year. However, life got busy after moving to Florida to take this position and I gave up this practice. For me, I think its time for me to bring back the bloom calendar and the personal peace and satisfaction it provides. Id encourage you to do something similar that causes you to slow down and pay attention to your surroundings. Maybe you like birds and would enjoy participating in a citizen scientist bird count, or you want to use the bloom calendar concept, note insects you see, or take a weekly walk on the beach to see what type of shells you find. Whatever helps you slow down and be more observant and appreciative of the inspiration that surrounds us at home in Bay County. If youd like to learn more about local plants, insects, and birds check out the upcoming class Birds, Bugs, & Berries on March 29 at Gulf Coast State College. The class is free, but space is limited, so please register by visiting https://birdsbugsberries.eventbrite.com.

** D4 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Patrick Brennan Special to The News HeraldPANAMA CITY Genealogy is a hyper-specific technique to look into the past. History is very broad. Genealogy is concerned with one family, one loosened thread. History, on the other hand, ismade up oflarge tapestries, many, many threads woven together into patterns and images that provide the viewer a bigger picture. For many Americans, their thread takes them into the rich, Celtic tapestry that is Irish history. The Irish diaspora has four distinct phases, four big pictures. Into which of these is your familys story woven? The first is the Flight of the Wild Geese,Ža phase of departure that involved a small, but very visible portion of the Irish Catholic population. It followed the Battle of the Boyne in 1691. Irish chieftains deposed by King William of England took aristocratic residence in Catholic courts across Europe. For example, the second governor of Spanish New Orleans (1769-1770) was Alejandro OReilly. Spanish? Yes. Irish? Look at that name! The second important wave was an emigration of expectationemigration of persons of means. They either came of the own accord or came as indentured servants. Some Irish immigrants rose to great prominence like Patrick Henry and Andrew Jackson while others found indentured servitude a living hell, a form of abject slavery. As the 19th century slowly unfolded, Irish immigration to America became increasingly characterized by Catholicism and the Gaelic/Irish language. The Great Hunger of 1845-1848, wherein a million died and another million emigrated to escape certain death, is central to understanding this phase. America responded to this wave of Catholic, Irish-speaking immigration with energetic racism and intolerance. Samuel Morse, famous for his telegraphic code, published a book explaining that Catholics were terrible candidates for citizenship because they took all their orders from the Pope himself. This was the era of Irish Need Not Apply.Ž When the American Civil War broke out, Irish men proved themselves to be ardent supporters of both sides. By wars end, tens of thousands of Irish Americans were buried in battlefields across their newly adopted homeland in blue and in grey. They paid a steep price to become part of the American tapestry. By the 1920s, the very large numbers of Irish emigration out of Ireland began to wane. But it did not stop. This modern era is the fourth phase of the Irish diaspora. And it continues today. My father grew up in a rural, remote part of Ireland known as Donegal. As a boy, he watched planes fly overhead and dreamed of himself soaring among the clouds. After finishing school, dad eventually found himself following in the footsteps of millions of Irish who preceded him to America. He joined the United States Air Force (USAF), married a Dungloe lass, and they had four children. We were stationed in northern Quebec when he died in a plane crash in March 1975. Captain Cornelius Joseph Brennan, USAF, is buried in Arlington National cemetery. Our family story is not part of a big picture like the Wild Geese, or the potato famine. It is a smaller story similar to those of many other immigrants who come to America from all over the world. This is a place to take flight and reach for dreams. Genealogy is a way for us to know our story, to know where it is we come from and how we got here. Erin go bragh. Patrick Brennan teaches history at Gulf Coast State College and has a Ph.D. in history from the University of Missouri. This spring he will graduate from college again.

DEAR ABBY: My 92-year-old mother lives alone, still drives and manages by herself with a feral cat she took in. Shes dealing with heart failure, but doing well on her meds. I am 70, an only child, married, retired and live six hours away. We go to see her four times a year and stay for a week in our RV. We talk on the phone once a week and email a couple times in between phone calls. Mom says shes staying in her house as long as she is able. She has nice neighbors who will do anything for her, plus a lawn/snow service. We have told her shes welcome to come live with us, but she loves her independence and has the cat to take care of. She goes to her church group, senior citizens group and gets her nails done every three weeks. Shes busier than I am socially. But I feel consumed by guilt that shes so far away and afraid that each visit may be our last. My husband says he isnt moving, and he has his own activities and health issues. He doesnt want to stay with Mom more than a week because we end up watching QVC with her all afternoon. When we left last week, she said, My friends told me I hardly ever see you, and I hope you can come more often.Ž I dont know what to do. Am I doing enough? We pay her taxes and phone/ cable/internet and any big bills (car repairs). But Im not there to drop in the way most of her friends children do, who never moved away after high school. „ GUILTRIDDEN IN MARYLANDDEAR GUILT-RIDDEN: You are doing as much as you can for your mother. Her friends should not judge because their family situations are not the same as yours. You stated that you email her in between phone calls. Ask your mother if she would be open to video chatting (Skype, FaceTime, etc.) in between those phone calls. That way you could see each others faces, and it might help her feel less distant from you.

** The News Herald | Sunday, March 11, 2018 E1 VIEWPOINTS GUEST COLUMNIST Im already dreading it. Today at 2 a.m., daylight saving time (DST), the practice of moving our clocks forward one hour in the spring and backward one hour in the fall, commenced. When I waketoday at my regular time„ which will depend on the pub I was drowning my DST sorrows at the night before„ I will be short by one hour. I will be in a stupor, for the most part, until November, when I must set my clocks back one hour„ at which time I officially will resume my perpetual confusion about what the heck time it is. Today half the clocks in my house„ those that have been off by an hour since November„ will display the correct time. The other half, which have displayed the correct time since November, will be wrong. Thus, when I have business meetings or social engagements to attend, Ill be one hour late or one hour early, but hardly ever on time. Daylight saving time was first implemented in Thunder Bay, Canada, in 1908. The goal was to squeeze an extra hour of daylight out of a typical day. The United States adopted the concept in 1918, but, reports TimeandDate. com, without uniform rules across all states, it resulted in widespread chaos in commerce and transportation. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 addressed that challenge by synchronizing the switch dates across the country. In an effort to save energy following the 1973 oil embargo, Congress changed DST dates again„ then changed them again in 1976. From 1987 to 2006, the country observed yet another set of DST dates„ which changed one more time in 2007, to our current March-and-November cycle. Millions of Americans have been befuddled ever since. I think a grand conspiracy is under way in which clearheaded morning peopleŽ are attempting to use DST to swindle us night-time peopleŽ and swipe our girlfriends while we are in a continuous state of fogginess. I also think Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts are in collusion to fatten profits. Starbucks coffee has always been ridiculously expensive, but et tu, Dunkin? I got a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee recently that was just shy of Starbucks exorbitant icedcoffee cost. I suspect price-fixing. I suspect federal officials are being bribed to keep adjusting DST rules so that we are forever groggy and grumpy, conditions that allow Big Coffee to fleece us. Where is Special Counsel Robert Mueller when you need him? In any event, an endless DST debate continues. Proponents of DST say it Never time for daylight saving Tom PurcellSee PURCELL, E2With the help of a sensationalizing press and of the entertainment business, which makes the pernicious and violent video games and movies that I think play the biggest role in mass shootings, liberals predictably seized upon the Parkland shooting rampage to call for more gun control. There are two hypocrisies here: First, Democrats, Hollywood, government officials and the mainstream press are all protected by gun-toting security. They are safe precisely because their guards have guns „ which ghettos, farms and trailer parks do not. The mayor of Nashville has a personal security guard; she even found extra government work for him on the side. Second, if more laws and gun control really worked, all mass shootings could just be outlawed. The FBI didnt follow up on tips. And the deranged shooter, Cruz, was visited by police 39 times, once after he put a gun to someones head. If you cannot enforce laws you have, why do you want to layer more laws on the current ones? Oh yeah „ and the cowardly sheriffs deputy at the school resigned, presumably to join the French Army. Senate Minority Leader Up-Chuck Schumer aligns himself with other famous world leaders who forced gun control: Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Fidel Castro, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Kim Jung-Il, Moammar Gadhafi and Hugo Chavez. When you are told by politicians that you do not need the Second Amendment, thats when you need it most. John Adams said, Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion for the defense of country, overthrow of tyranny or private defense.Ž With Obama weaponizing agencies like the IRS and FBI against citizens, we might have needed guns sooner. We live in an increasingly divided country. Half of us want to be protected by Trump and the other half wants to be protected from him „ although, surprisingly, Trump is open to gun law changes. Mass shootings play to Trumps themes. As Ann Coulter has observed, firstand second-generation immigrants have committed a large and notable number of all mass shootings since 2000. Thats Trumps sweet spot. If done with reason and not emotion, I could see streamlining the many gun laws we have that are not enforced now and replacing them with better ones. Sadly, facts seldom matter in politics. Youd think we are a gun-murder based economy. Not so. According to Dr. Alan Bates, Murder rates nationwide have dropped 52 percent over 20 years ƒ violent crime by 49 percent to a 41-year low (FBI stats), synchronous with 41 states adopting right to carry laws.ŽSelf-control before gun controlThey Panama City cray“ sh is the subject of a debate over whether to classify the species as threatened. [U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE] By Mary SittmanGuest ColumnistThe Florida Fishand Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) previously attempted to list the Panama City crayfish as threatened. After those efforts failed, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now has its own proposed rule to list the species as threatened. For all the reasons many opposed the actions of the FWC, many have submitted comments in opposition to the proposed U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service action. These regulations, if enacted, will impose serious restrictions on the use of land within the designated zone and may affect the future quality of life in Bay County. The plan designates an area consisting of approximately 56 square miles within Bay County „ encompassing the cities of Panama City, Lynn Haven, Parker, Springfield and Callaway „ as protected crayfish habitat. Using the soils preferred by the crayfish, more than 70 percent of the land in this zone will be designated crayfish habitat. Before any development or alterations to any property lying within this zone, a property owner will be required to obtain a takeŽ permit. It is urgently important that all potentially affected landowners within the designated zone be aware of the requirements of the proposal and the potential loss of the use or value of their property. The data used to indicate the need to list this species is spurious at best. Throughout the draft management plan, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service indicates that estimates of abundance are lacking.Ž The report further indicates they really dont know very much about the crayfish or its biological lifestyle. The scientists involved in the study of the crayfish do not yet know what human activities could cause harm to the crayfish: Specific data demonstrating cause and effect for current and perceived threats are lacking in many cases.Ž The truth of the matter is that the crayfish is a highly adaptable creature that has responded to the loss of its natural habitat by taking up residence in human altered landscape. The crayfish has moved from small wet depressions in pine forests to the swales, ditches and power line easements throughout its range. The management plan suggests jurisdiction could be extended to the remaining 30 percent of the lands that do not contain the preferred hydric soils, because there is evidence that juvenile crayfish are transported overland by sheetflowŽ rains. Clearly any alteration in the upland landscape (driveway, building) could create an impediment to this sheetflowŽ and therefore create an impediment to crayfish survival. As a matter of fact, the plan calls for regulating and controlling off-road vehicle use on lands that aren't habitat lands based on the premise that those vehicles can cause ruts that might alter hydrology. Because most local land development regulations require an environmental analysis to determine the presence or absence of regulated species on lands proposed for development, all property with soils suitable for crayfish habitat (70 percent) will be required to prove the absence of crayfish. In order to defend their rights to develop something as simple as a swimming pool, property owners could be required to hire biologists to survey their property. Because a definitive determination cannot be made unless three samples have been performed over three seasons (two wet and one dry), a lengthy drought could cause a landowner to have to wait five to six years before confirming that no crayfish existed on their property.Proposed crayish listing makes no sense Ron HartSee HART, E2 See SITTMAN, E2

** E2 Sunday, March 11, 2018 | The News Herald VIEWPOINTS Most of the threats cited in the plan are merely speculative. The most frequently cited cause is loss of habitat.Ž The species was first identified in 1942. At that time, the population of Bay County was 20,686. The estimated population of Bay County in 2017 was 183,974, a 900 percent increase, and yet the species continues to be present in all surveyed sites. Also, because the crayfish has been found in mosquito breeding zones (ditches and swales), it is likely that any spraying for mosquitoes could be suspended throughout the region to avoid chemical drift into protected habitat. No longer will residents of this region be assured of protection from West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases. The health of the crayfish will, by law, come ahead of the health of Bay County residents The proposal acknowledges mitigation and minimization activities may increase costs to permit applicants. No economic analysis of the plan was performed, as the assumption was made that applicants for permits would be subject to wetland regulation-related costs and the costs associated with a crayfish take permit would not add much to that burden. Nevertheless, many of the soils listed are present in non-wetland areas. The plan further seeks to extend its regulatory reach across non-jurisdictional property. Florida law specifically requires a management plan to address anticipated economic impacts of implementing or not implementing the recommended action. The plan currently proposed does not adequately address the economic danger to this community. A recent Panama City sewer line project incurred a $100,000 cost increase to protect alleged crayfish habitat. Despite Florida Administrative Code requirements that the agency assess anticipated social impacts of implementation, the plan states the regulatory agencies have not obtained sufficient public input to assess the social impacts of the listing. Katherine Phillips, a field supervisor for USFWS in Panama City, has said the threatened status might not be needed if the county, state or federal government purchases some wetlands to allow the crustaceans population levels to come back. Fish and wildlife officials said the wetlands acreage to bring the species off the threatened list would need to be in the 2,150-acre range. The species could exist on wetlands with recreational uses such as walking paths, and the wetlands would have other ecological benefits. Besides potential limits to land use, the listing of the Panama City crayfish could subject the average fisherman innocently collecting bait to criminal fines for the unwitting takingŽ of the crayfish. I am not aware of any method to positively identify the species without a postmortem examination. It would be nearly impossible to educate all Bay County residents on the correct method for distinguishing good bait from threatenedŽ bait. Even the simplest of normal human activities could become the subject of criminal indictments if the citizens are not willing to accede to the proposed extortion by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The author is a resident of Panama City. SITTMANFrom Page E1gives us more daylight in spring and summer, which gets us out of the house and makes us happier. Opponents say it makes spring and summer mornings darker, which makes us less productive at work most of the year. They also say it causes us to consume more energy. Im unable to participate in the conversation, however, because I havent finished my first pot of coffee. As I see it, if DST is going to keep us forever disoriented, why adjust our clocks forward and backward by only one hour? Why not move them forward to 2030 so I can begin collecting Social Security „ or backward to 1984, when I had a 29-inch waist and was still able to date really goodlooking ladies? Whatever the case, my mother is especially worried about my difficulty adjusting to DST changes. She jokes that Ill be late for my own funeral. Or an hour early. Tom Purcell is a columnist with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Cagle Cartoons. PURCELLFrom Page E1In every one of my columns about guns, I have said that we need a balanced study on guns„ and not from the hysterical hyenas on opposing sides. We shouldnt use polls just from the NRA or Chuck Schumers Upper Eastside condo board. With the results, and after the emotion of a school shooting has faded and reason can prevail, perhaps we can dispel myths and reduce some of the bureaucracy surrounding gun ownership. Only 323 deaths a year are caused by assault weapons. In one recent year, 496 Americans were killed with hammers, 650 with knives, and 12,000 people died because of drunk drivers. Millions of Americans are dying from obesity-related causes; perhaps a one-week waiting period to buy a Twinkie is next? Or confiscation of all forks? Delta Air Lines cowarded and said it was no longer going to award members of the NRA discounts on flights. It was later determined that 13 folks took those discounts last year. Bold move, Delta. Then Dicks Sporting Goods said it will stop selling certain assault rifles,Ž and celebs predictably applauded. Rosie ODonnell, Ellen DeGeneres and k.d. lang, who had never much been into Dicks their whole lives, suddenly were. Of course, George Clooney, protected in his jets by armed security guards, gave money for an anti-gun march. George is at that awkward career stage, too old for leading man roles but too young for Life Alert or a Jitterbug phone, so he opines on politics for attention. Manly stars of the 60s were different than the knee-jerk liberal actors of today. The great Dean Martin summed up the gun debate best when he was charged by a district attorney with two felony counts of carrying a loaded .38 handgun. The media threw him into the debate by asking as he was leaving the jail, Mr. Martin, do you think everyone should have a gun?Ž He said, No, preferably just me.Ž Ron Hart, a libertarian syndicated oped humorist, award-winning author and TV/radio commentator, can be reached at Ron@ RonaldHart.com, or visit www.RonaldHart.com.

** The News Herald | Sunday, March 11, 2018 E3 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEWThe slow but steady privatization of Floridas public schools continuedlast week with the Legislatures approval of an omnibus education bill that funnels millions more tax dollars to private schools while public schools struggle to pay for everything from teachers to textbooks to technology. Moreover, the sweeping bill, the No. 1 priority of House Speaker Richard Corcoran this legislative session, targets teachers unions through arequirement that says local unions that do not have at least 50 percent of its districts teachers as members could lose their certification and, in turn, their right to bargain on behalf of teachers and other school employees. Its simple union busting. Yes, Corcoran is on a one-man mission to destroy public schools as we know them. State Sen. Dennis Baxley acknowledged as much when he was quoted by the Tampa Bay Times: This is the future. Were empowering personalizationŽ of education. The bill in question is House Bill 7055. It creates a new voucher program, known as the Hope Scholarship, that would provide state money to students who claim they are being bullied in public schools so they can attend the private school of their choice. Price tag: $41 million. Problem is, the bill does not require any proof of the bullying, just the students and parents say-so. Moreover, it does nothing to address the alleged bullies. Finally, it does nothing to mitigate ongoing bullying in the public schools in general. The bill also allows businesses to direct the sales tax they pay on their rent away from the states general fund and into an account for another voucher program, the Gardiner Scholarships, which are for students with mental or physical disabilities to attend private school. The amount allowed under the bill, $57.5 million. The House passed a major tax package that gives a sense of how remarkably generous our lawmakers are to private schools and how uncaring they are about the public schools. The total amount of just sales tax revenues slated to be set aside for voucher programs next year is $154 million. Again, that is just sales tax dollars. Since 2010 the number of students receiving private school vouchers has ballooned from 35,000 to 106,000. And the voucher program that started in 2001 under former Gov. Jeb Bush with $50 million doled out $698 million this year. In the coming school year, the state could spend $873 million. If lawmakers like Corcoran are allowed to continue stealing from public needs to pad private bottom lines, public education as we know it in Florida will be changed forever „ and not likely for the better. And, lest we forget, the private schools benefiting from this public giveaway are not required to meet the same performance standards as public schools. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Ocala StarBanner, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse MediaOUR VIEWPrivatization of public educationWhat a glorious thing, watching West Virginia teachers, most of them women, shut down the states public schools for nearly two weeks to force their elected officials to give them the 5 percent raise they surely deserve. On the brink of victory, the crowd of teachers gathered in the West Virginia Capitol started singing the state anthem. Seeing so many people, of such a mix of ages and colors, swaying together as they belted out John Denvers 1971 hit Take Me Home, Country RoadsŽ can make you believe we really are making progress in this country. In addition to the teachers, many of the unsung heroes in this nine-day strike were the people most immediately affected by it: parents. Students, of course, were missing classroom time, but working parents, particularly those with younger children, had to scramble to cobble together child care. Still, neither state nor national media coverage offered up much in the way of complaining by parents. Even parents of high school seniors, with so much to do in so little time, seemed mostly to take it in stride. Why is that? As I quickly learned, talk to a hundred parents and youll hear a hundred stories „ but a theme of support threads through them. Lisa Weihman, a mother of two high-schoolers in Morgantown, echoed the opinions of so many. I havent met a single parent, even on community boards, who isnt mostly supporting the teachers,Ž Weihman, an associate professor of English at West Virginia University,told me in a phone interview Tuesday. Everyone knows a teacher, and most of us know a teacher who is working a second or third job, which is most of them.Ž Many of her former students are teachers, too. I think we all know they deserve better. And better pay keeps better teachers in the state.Ž The National Education Association ranks the average salaries for teachers for all 50 states and Washington, D.C. In 2016, West Virginia ranked 48th „ at $45,622 „ which was 0.4 percent less than it was in 2015. The only states that rank lower are Oklahoma, South Dakota and Mississippi. Teachers in West Virginia dont have to travel far to find better pay. Of its neighboring states, Pennsylvania ranked 10th; Ohio, 21st; Kentucky, 26th; and Virginia, 30th. Weihman said the teachers are a politically diverse group, which helped their cause. You couldnt demonize them as liberals versus right-wingers, Republicans versus Democrats. The attitude was, No, this is about our kids.Ž Some Republican leaders threatened to cut Medicaid to pay for the teachers raises. Thats what an attempt to demonize teachers looks like. If Weihmans response is an indication, the takeaway by the constituents of West Virginia is much different. Weve always been told (the teachers) have so little power, that they were more an association than a union,Ž she said. That they could act like a real union and be a real union is inspiring. This is how collective bargaining works.Ž Theres a lesson there for workers everywhere in America, and its the same one kids like me learned growing up in union households. As I watched West Virginia behold the power of its teachers and the communities that supported them, I heard the voice of my father: For people like us, our strength is in our numbers, and our power comes from standing together.

I have had a lot of parts changed and still it will run one day, and the next day it will only crank and crank and not start. I know I have fuel pressure and I know that I have spark when it runs. When it wont run I dont have spark. I have had the distributor changed, the ignition module, the coil, plug wires and plugs. The only thing that I can see that is not normal is the plugs are gas fouled and wet when it wont start. Any ideas what this problem may be? Mark A. Mark, fuel fouled spark plugs on this engine can be because the injectors are ring when the car cranks and wont start. Another more common area of fuel fouling on this older model truck is the fuel pressure regulator. To see if the fuel pressure regulator is faulty you only have to remove the vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator. If gas pours out of the vacuum line, you have found out why you are fouling out your spark plugs with gas. Replace the fuel pressure regulator. Now to the no spark problemŽ. The most common problems on this model are the coil and ignition module fail. But when they fail it wont start, no matter what you do. I suspect the battery voltage going to the ignition module is not correct or the ground to the module is faulty. To verify that you have a good ground and good power, rig up a test light using an old headlight from the salvage yard. Once you know the headlight is capable of working, place one of the headlight leads on the green/ red wire that goes to the ignition module in the distributor. Take the other wire and go to the black bottom wire of the ignition module. Turn your key to on, the headlight should be very bright. If it is, I suspect a faulty distributor pickup or faulty ignition module. If the headlight does not light up bright then remove the test light wire going to the ground wire and place on a good known ground (battery) if it lights up nice and bright, you have a faulty ground that needs to corrected. (it is the one that comes right off the negative side of the battery cable). Check the red green wire if you still dont get the headlight to work for battery voltage. ONE DAY IT RUNS, THE NEXT DAY IT DOESNT! James Morrisjames@masterautotech.comTHE AUTOADVISOR Hope this gives you enough information to gure this problem out.
