Andrew Wardlow | The News Herald By Lloyd Dunkelberger The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE„ Florida lawmakers ended their 2018 session Sunday by passing an $88.7 billion budget, while Gov. Rick Scott signed legislation that provides record funding for Bright Futures college scholar-ships and continues expanding voucher-like programs for chil-dren to attend private schools.In a 95-12 vote, the House approved the 2018-2019 budget (HB 5001), which takes effect on July 1. The Senate then approved the budget in a 31-5 vote, with opposition in both chambers coming from Democrats.The votes concluded an annual session that ran two days into overtime after lawmakers failed to agree on a budget in time to observe a constitutionally required 72-hour cooling-offŽ period before an expected Friday vote on the budget.Republican leaders touted increases money for the education system. Funding in the kindergarten-through-high-school system increased by $101.50 per student, while performance funding for state universities was increased by $20 million.House passes $88.7B budget By John Henderson 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn jhenderson@pcnh.comBAY COUNTY „ Bay County wants to lower the fee for ambulance rides for residents now that the county has committed to subsidizing the service on an annual basis.Even with the highest ambulance fees in the state, the county has run the service at a more than $1.6 million deficit since it took it over in 2013, figures from the Clerk of Courts office show.Officials have now accepted the fact that an annual sub-sidy will be needed to balance the ambulance budget asthe deficit continues to grow each year.This past fiscal year the countysubsidized the ser-vice for $2.2 million out of the county budget, butas was the case this year, the countywill not be raising property taxes in the future to cover the equipment and personnel for the service in the coming years, County Manager Bob Majka said.Instead, the ambulance service subsidy will come from the portion of the county budget generated from fees for services, sales taxes and other sources paid by every-one, not just property owners, Majka said.We cut the millage rate a quarter of a mill (this past year) and implemented an (ambulance) subsidy,Ž Majka said.A County Commission discussion on lowering the fees for ambulance rides will County looks to lower cost of ambulancesService will be subsidized with general fund money WEDNESDAYPlenty of sun 60 / 41TUESDAYSunny 63 / 39TODAYSunny; cooler 62 / 40 By Jill ColvinThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Presi-dent Donald Trumps plan to combat school shootings will include helping states pay for firearms training for teachers and a call to improve the background check system.But Trumps plan will not include a push to increase the minimum age for purchasing assault weapons or an embrace of more comprehensive background checks, as Trump has at times advocated.Instead, a new federal com-mission on school safety will examine the age issue, as well as a long list of others topics, as part of a longer-term look at school safety and violence.In a call with reporters Sunday evening, adminis-tration officials described the plan as a fulfillment of Trumps call for action in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 students and staff dead. Today we are announcing meaningful actions, steps that can be taken right away to help protect students,Ž said Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who will chair the commission.DeVos said that far too Trump wants gun training for teachersIn this Feb. 14 photo, students hold their hands in the air as they are evacuated by police from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., after a shooter opened “ re on the campus.

It also marks Scotts break with the National Rifle Association, and the groups powerful lobbyist called the bill a display of bullying and coercionŽ that would violate Second Amendment rights and punish law-abiding citizens.

** The News Herald | Monday, March 12, 2018 A3This is an outstanding year for education,Ž Scott said in a bill-signing ceremony with House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land OLakes, and Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart.Scott signed a highereducation bill (SB 4) that will permanently expand Bright Futures merit-based scholarships for university and state college students.The bill, a top priority of Negron, will cover 100 per-cent of tuition and fees for some 48,155 students who qualify as Bright Futures academic scholarsŽ next school year and provide $300 for the fall and spring semesters for textbooks.The legislation expands state aid to cover 75 percent of tuition and fees, representing $159 out of the average $211 per credit-hour cost, for 46,521 students who qualify as Bright Futures medallion scholars.ŽThe expansion will result in a $520 million Bright Futures program in the new academic year, eclipsing the previous high of $429 mil-lion set in 2008-2009.The budget continues expansion of the states main need-based aid program, Florida Student Assistance Grants, to sup-port an estimated 236,724 students, who will receive average awards of $1,155.Negron said the new law restores the promiseŽ of Bright Futures scholarships and was major part of his two-year quest as Senate president to raise the national profile of Floridas university system.Through this legislation, the Legislature and Gov. Scott are telling Flor-ida students and families that they can count on the Bright Futures scholarship as they plan their invest-ment in an education at one of our excellent colleges or universities,Ž Negron said.Scott also signed a farranging education bill (HB 7055), supported by Corcoran, that will expand the use of voucher-like scholarships to send more public-school students to private schools.While Republican leaders touted that bill, it drew opposition from Democrats. Caroline Rowland, a spokeswoman for the Florida Democratic Party, issued a statement Sunday blasting Scott for signing HB 7055.Just like hes done for years, Rick Scott is drain-ing funding from our public schools in order to give his political donors and cronies another taxpayer funded handout „its just the latest demonstration that Scott puts his own self-serving politics over Floridas schools, teachers and stu-dents,Ž Rowland said.One program in the bill will let students who face bullying or harassment in public schools transfer to private schools. The hope scholarshipsŽ will be funded by motorists who voluntarily agree to contribute the sales taxes they would normally pay on vehicle transactions to the scholarships. It is expected to generate $41.5 million for the scholarships in the next year.The legislation also allows businesses that pay a state tax on commercial leases to voluntarily shift those funds to Gardiner scholarships, which pay for services and private-school scholarships for disabled students. The new budget boosts the Gardiner schol-arships by $25 million to $128 million.The law builds on Corco-rans two-year effort as House speaker to expand school choice programs, with a particular focus on helping students in low-performing schools.The legislation is coupled with a budget that provides another $140 million to the schools of hopeŽ program, which is aimed at providing more services to persistentlyŽ low-performing schools and allowing more charter schools to serve students in those areas.Corcoran said the goal is to give all children of all districts, all neighborhoods, a real chance at a world-class education.ŽThe new law also contains a controversial provision that could force teachers unions to disband if their membership falls below 50 percent of the employees they represent in the contract-negotiating process. If decertified, the unions would be forced to reorga-nize and seek a new vote to represent the teachers.Nobody should be forced to be led when a majority of the people you are leading dont want to be there,Ž Corcoran said. The rare Sunday conclu-sion to the annual legislative session also marked Scotts last regular session as governor.He won support for a constitutional amendment that, if approved by voters in November, will require two-thirds votes by the Legislature to raise taxes or fees in the future.Lawmakers also backed a $53 million initiative to deal with the states opioid crisis, which was another Scott priority.Scott said he is pleased by pay raises in the state budget for law enforcement officers, including the Florida Highway Patrol, and workers at the Department of Juvenile Justice. And he cited the Legisla-tures support for requiring nursing homes and assisted living facilities to have gen-erators to provide power to facilities in the aftermath of major storms.But Scott, as well as Negron and Corcoran, said the 2018 session may be best remembered for the response following the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.The shooting, which killed 17 people, led to a $400 million school-safety initiative and legislation imposing new restrictions on gun purchases.Probably the most important thing we did this year is we listened to the families of Parkland. In very short period of time, we came together and passed historic legislation to make our schools safer,Ž Scott said. This is my last regu-lar legislative session and I couldnt be more proud of this session than all eight sessions Ive been a part of.Ž BUDGETFrom Page A1 come up in late April or early May, Majka said. The fees can exceed $1,200 a ride, and more than $1,400 for an advanced life support ride. Many people dont pay ambulance bills at that price, and collections may increase if the fees were lowered, Majka said.Were looking at ways to provide residents a little bit of relief on those rates since we are now subsidizing the EMS system with money from the general fund,Ž Majka said. Were not going to be raising taxes to offset this subsidy, and have no plans of doing so in the future.ŽMajka said he did not yet have the proposed fees for the ambulance service.On Oct. 1, 2013, the county absorbed the entire EMS staff „ 88 positions „ previously employed by Bay Medical Center Sacred Heart Heath System, which had operated the service.Despite public assurances that taking over the countys ambulance service wouldnt require subsidies, taxpayers are now on the hook to help pay for its operation.According to Clerk of Court figures, the service ran at a deficit of $116,781 when expenseswere compared to expenditures in 2013, a deficit of $217,709 in 2014, a surplus of $324,931 in 2015, adeficit $551,501 in 2016 and a deficit of $1.04 million in 2017.The county had taken out a $2.5 million line of credit to cover vehicles and equipment and operating expenses. But those funds have been spent and the county still is paying off the debt.Before the Bay County Commissions vote in 2013 to take over the service, theconsulting firm Fitch and Associates incorrectly told the commission that the ambulance serviceshould make $600,000 to $1.2 mil-lion annually.In our opinion the county generated system should break even or better,Ž the report to Bay Countysaid. Consultantsinvolved in the study there could not be reached for comment.But Clerk Bill Kinsaulpre-dicted the futurein a letter to the commission at the time, saying the service would require an annual subsidy, which has come to fruition. He wrote to com-missioners that there is a very high probability Bay County would experience a negative financial impact with the transition of EMS to Bay County.ŽI did a survey of every clerks office in state anyone who had a county-run ambulance system to see if any broke even. Every one without exception didnt break even and had to subsidize it,Ž Kinsaul said.Kinsaul said he wasnt taking a position on whether the county should run the service but just wanted commissioners to have accurate financial facts. Now that the county is running the ambulance service, it needs to be run well, Kinsaul said.One of the main(problems) with EMS is you have a huge amount of writeoffs,Ž Kinsaul said.The new ambulances purchased this year were needed to comply with ambulance safety standards, said Mark Bowen, Bay Countys Chief of Emergency Services.We realized as far as industry standards go, we needed more ambulances on road,Ž he said.He said these nine ambulances the county purchased are the first new ones the EMS service has had.All of the ambulances we received from Bay Medical were very old,Ž Bowen said. Most were approaching end-of-life. The ones we got from Sarasota County were end-of-life. They had surplused them.Ž COSTFrom Page A1

[MICHEL SPINGLER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Denise LavoieThe Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. „ As schools around the country brace for student walkouts following the deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida, princi-pals and superintendents are scrambling to perform a deli-cate balancing act: How to let thousands of students exercise their First Amendment rights while not disrupting school and not pulling administrators into the raging debate over gun control.Some have taken a hard line, promising to suspend students who walk out, while others are using a softer approach, working with students to set up places on campus where they can remember the victims of the Florida shooting and express their views about school safety and gun control.Since the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, dem-onstrations have sprung up on school campuses around the country. But the first largescale, coordinated national demonstration is planned for Wednesday when organizers of the Womens March have called for a 17-minute walk-out, one minute for each of the 17 students and staff members killed in Florida.National demonstrations are also planned for March 24, with a march on Washington, D.C.; and on April 20, the 19th anniversary of the Colum-bine High School massacre in Colorado.No matter how schools decide to deal with the dem-onstrations, students have been reassured by Harvard, Yale, MIT, the University of Connecticut, UCLA and dozens of other colleges and universities that their participation wont affect their chances of getting admitted.But for middle-school and high-school administrators, figuring out how to allow the demonstrations during school hours has proven challenging. In some cases, it hasnt gone smoothly.In Needville, Texas, near Houston, Superintendent Curtis Rhodes was castigated on social media after he warned that students who leave class would be suspended for three days, even if they get parental permission.SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON YOU,Ž wrote one woman.In Garretson, South Dakota, administrators canceled a student walkout planned for April 20 after a Facebook posting about the plan drew more than 300 negative com-ments from adults.And in Arizona, dozens of students at Ingleside Middle School, near Phoenix, were given one-day suspensions after they left campus on Feb. 27.Layla Defibaugh, an eighth-grade student at Ingleside, said she wanted to partici-pate in the walkout, but didnt because of the threatened suspensions. She does plan to join the Wednesday walkout, even it means getting suspended.Its important for me to speak my mind on this topic,Ž she said. At the end of the day, they shouldnt be able to punish us for exercising our First Amendment rights.ŽAASA, The School Superintendents Association, has fielded dozens of calls and emails from school administrators asking for advice, while the American Civil Liberties Union has received hundreds of inquiries from students about what their rights are and if they can be disciplined for participating in the protests.The answer depends on each schools code of con-duct and disciplinary policies.

** The News Herald | Monday, March 12, 2018 A5By Robert BurnsThe Associated PressMUSCAT, Oman „ U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Sunday warned the Syrian government not to use chemical weapons in its civil war and said the Trump administration has made it clear that it would be very unwiseŽ to use gas in attacks.Mattis told reporters traveling with him to the Mideast that he was dis-turbed by reports of civilian casualties from bombings by Syrian President Bashar Assads forces.Right now were get-ting reports „ I dont have evidence that I can show you „ but Im aware of the reports of chlorine gas use,Ž he said before arriv-ing Sunday in Oman.The U.S. responded militarily last year to reported Syrian govern-ment use of sarin gas, and Mattis was asked whether the administration is now considering retaliating for chlorine gas use.Im not going to strictly define it. We have made it very clear that it would be very unwise to use gasŽ as a weapon, Mattis said.He said the latest reports of Syrian government forces killing civilians in eastern Ghouta show that troops are at best indiscriminatelyŽ attacking and at worst targeting hospitals. I dont know which it is, whether theyre incom-petent or whether theyre committing illegal acts or both.ŽIn Washington, CIA director Mike Pompeo noted that President Donald Trump has said he will not tolerate chemical weapons attacks, but has not yet made a decision about the latest reports.Mattis: Syria very unwise to use chemical weaponsU.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, right, shakes hands with Omani Brigadier Saleh bin Ahmed al-Hinai, Head of the Oman Military Protocols and Public Relations, Sunday at Seeb Air Base, northwest of Muscat, Oman.[OMAN NEWS AGENCY VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] With re-election as president seemingly assured, In uence on global stage is as strong as everBy Angela Charlton and Naira DavlashyanThe Associated PressMOSCOW „ Vladimir Putin and his Russia look more invincible today than at any other time in his 18 years in power.Since Putin last faced an election in 2012, Russians have invaded Ukraine, annexed Crimea, blanket-bombed Syria, been accused of meddling in the U.S. presidential election and claimed to have a scary new nuclear arsenal.No one listened to us. You listen to us now,Ž he said earlier this month, boasting about those weapons.Putin will overwhelm-ingly win re-election as president on March 18, again. So why bother holding a vote at all?He disdains democracy as messy and dangerous „ yet he craves the legitimacy conferred by an election. He needs tangible evidence that Russians need him and his great-power vision more than they worry about the freedoms he has muffled, the endemic corruption he has failed to eradicate, the sanctions he invited by his actions in Crimea and Ukraine.Any autocrat wants love,Ž said analyst Andrei Kolesnikov of the Carnegie Moscow Center, and Putin gets that love from high support in elections.ŽExpected to win as much as 80 percent of the vote, Putin will further cement his authority over Russia, a czar-like figure with a democratic veneer.During his 14 years as president and four years as prime minister, Putin has transformed Russias global image, consolidated power over its politics and economy and imprisoned opponents. He has offered asylum to Edward Snowden, quieted extremism in long-restive Chechnya, hosted phenomenally expensive Olympic Games and won the right to stage this years World Cup.Now 65-years-old, hes not planning to leave any-time soon.For 19-year-old art history student Maria Pogodina, Putin is all of my conscious life, and so its clear I have a lot to say thank you for.ŽYet Pogodina worries about some of his policies as she prepares to vote and hopes to see a gradual transformation. I am not talking about revolution, no way,Ž the teenager said, summing up the stance of many Russians of all ages. I hope and believe it wont happen and that we can avoid civil conflict.ŽThe election will confirm Putins argument that to improve life in Russia, the country needs continuity more than it needs drastic change, independent media, political opposition, environmental activism or rights for homosexu-als and other minorities.Putins Russia: A resurgent powerIn this May 7, 2004 photo, Russian President Vladimir Putin walks through St. Georges Hall to take part in an inauguration ceremony in Moscow.

And he has called for a full audit and review of the FBI tip line.In the weeks since the massacre, Trump has held listening sessions with lawmakers, survivors of recent school shootings and the families of victims.

Letters may be edited for clarity and brevity. Guest columns of up to 600 words may be submitted as well. Write: Letters to the editor, The News Herald, 501 W. 11th St., Panama City, FL 32401 Email: LETTER TO THE EDITOR SQUALL LINE Tim Thompson | Publisher Will Glover | Managing Editor Mike Cazalas | Editor PANAMA CITY VIEWPOINTSKudos to Gov. Rick Scott, who on Friday signed a gun control and school safety bill that before the Parkland massacre would never have passed the Legislature „ or even been debated. Senate Bill 7026, dubbed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, is a testament to the aphorism politics is the art of the possible.Ž It doesnt give gun control proponents what they wanted most „ a ban on the sale of AR-15s and similarly styled rifles. It went too far in the eyes of some gun-rights advocates: Powerful lobbyist Marion Hammer earlier this week emailed NRA members urging them to contact their legislators to vote against SB 7026. She said that senators were being bullied into voting for gratuitous gun control measures.Ž An assault weaponŽ ban was politically impossible to achieve. Yet, there was bipartisan support to adopt several sensible measures in response to the shooting deaths of 14 South Florida high school students and three staff members three weeks ago. The guardian program, which would allow some teachers and school personnel to be armed if both the local school district and local sheriffs department agree,is the bills most controversial element. Many teachers, parents, and law enforcement officials oppose it, fearing putting guns in schools decreases safety. That compelled most Democratic lawmakers to vote against the entire bill. However, the program is not mandatory „ school districts have the option of not participating. That nod to home rule on firearms is a shift in a Legislature that has explicitly prohibited city and county governments from setting their own regulations on guns that deviate from state statutes „ to the point that local officials were threatened with removal from office if they failed to comply. It will be interesting to see how many districts participate in the guardian program „ and if the $67 million appropriated for it winds up being largely unused. No panacea exists for mass shootings. Those horrific crimes are complex and unique acts not easily understood by law enforcement or social scientists. For instance, the higher age restriction wouldve applied to the 19-yearold Parkland shooter, but not to the Pulse, Las Vegas or Virginia Tech mass murderers. The Sandy Hook shooter was a 20-year-old who obtained his weapons from his mother, whom he killed. The Columbine shooters were two teens who illegally obtained their guns via an older straw buyer. A GVRO might have stopped the Parkland and Virginia Tech shooters, but not others. AR-15s were not used in the Columbine and Virginia Tech massacres. Nevertheless, SB 7026 represents progress in addressing a disturbing social phenomenon „ seven of the 10 worst mass shootings in U.S. history have occurred since 2007, three of those since 2017. Florida has set an example that Congress and other states should follow: Doing what is feasible is better than doing nothing. This editorial first appeared in the Daytona News Journal, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media. Progress on gun violencePlanned Parenthood deserves funding As a medical doctor, I would expect that Rep. Neal Dunn would take a stand for preventive medicine, that he would vote to protect lives, that women's lives are worth protecting, that he would support programs that provide life saving measures for women such as breast cancer screening and cervical cancer screening and pregnancy support and birth control. So please tell me where Dr. Dunn stands on funding Planned Parenthood, an organization that is by law forbidden to use federal funds for abortions, but uses federal funds to provide health care to women who otherwise are left out of the health care system.Sharon Wichmann, TallahasseeRe trumps affairs: New film Chappaquiddick reminds that democrats' patron saint, Ted Kennedy had affair resulting in a girls death.

I hope the voters do their research and really look at the motives of the candidates. Excusing Donald Trumps behavior by saying it isnt as bad as someone elses behavior is like dismissing cancer because it isnt as bad as bad as someone elses cancer. ANOTHER VIEWLanguage matters. For example, the way our society's leaders choose to comment on the health of America's economy can either make clear to us commoners what's going on „ or obfuscate, hide and even lie about the reality we face. Consider that the most common measurement that the media, politicians and corporations use to tell us whether our economy is zooming or sputtering is Wall Street's index of stock prices. The media literally spews out some number every hour indicating that the Dow Jones Average of stock prices is up, down or sluggish „ as though everyone is waiting breathlessly for that news. But wait „ nearly all stock is owned by the richest 10 percent of Americans, so the Dow Jones Average says nothing about the economic condition of the 90 percent majority of Americans. For us „ and for the true economic health of America as a whole „ we need to know the Doug Jones Average. In plain language: How're Doug and Delores Jones doing? As we've seen for years now, stock prices keep rising to record highs, while wages and living standards of the middle class and poor majority have been held down by the same corporate and political "leaders" telling us to keep our eye on the Dow. Indeed, they also play a dirty language trick on us when they issue the monthly report on the health of America's job market. Currently, they say, with the unemployment rate down to four percent, the job market is booming! But wait again „ that only reflects the number of jobs, not their dollar value in terms of wages and benefits. Having lots of people doing poorly paid work is not a healthy job economy. Notice that they don't measure the stock market by the number of stocks out there, but by their value. And they should measure your job market the same way in order to get an honest picture of how Doug and Delores are doing. Remember last year when Donald Trump and his echo chamber of congressional Trumpeteers bragged that their yuuuuuge tax cut for corporations would spark an equally huge corporate spending spree on new American factories, millions of jobs, and higher wages for working stiffs? Well, corporations have been banking billions of bucks from this massive Republican giveaway of our public funds „ and just as they promised, we're now seeing corporate chieftains spending wildly! But unproductively on buybacks. These giants literally are spending their newfound billions to buy up their own shares of stock. Why? By reducing the total number of shares on the market, the value of each remaining share increases, for those lucky shareholders get a bigger piece of the company's profit pie. Yes, less magically means more! But it's not magic, it's manipulation. And the top executives doing the manipulating are primary beneficiaries, since most of them are paid in shares of their own corporation's stock. The executives of Lowe's, for example, say they'll spend $5 billion of its taxpayer bonanza on buybacks, Google chieftains will spend $8.6 billion, PepsiCo is in for $15 billion, Cisco for $25 billion and Apple for $30 billion. If Trump and the GOP Congress had really intended for their billion-dollar giveaway of the people's tax revenue to be spent for the benefit of all, they would've required the corporate recipients of such massive tax breaks to plow the bulk of the money into our nation's grassroots economy.

The Marvel and Disney phenomenon crossed the $1 billion mark world-wide this weekend and became the 7th highest grossing domestic release with $562 million. Not accounting for inflation, its now passed The Dark Knight.ŽWith a marketplace still dominated by Black Panther,Ž Disney faced some stiff competition from its own studio in launching Ava DuVernays adaption of A Wrinkle in Time,Ž which opened in second place with $33.3 million from 3,980 locations. The PG-rated film, which cost around $103 million to produce and stars Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon, received mixed reviews from critics (its currently at a rottenŽ 44 percent on RottenToma-toes) and audiences who gave it a B CinemaScore. But the Black PantherŽ effect is the x-factor here. For Disney, its a win all around.ŽWhen you think about having two films at the top of the box office, its definitely a win all around,Ž says Disneys worldwide theatrical distribution president Dave Hollis. Were feeling good about this start ... Were feeling good about what, for us, is a little family compe-tition between now and (the Easter holiday).ŽBlack Panther, tops A Wrinkle in Time By Vanessa GeraThe Associated PressWARSAW, Poland „ A new Polish law banning almost all trade on Sundays has taken effect, with large supermarkets and most other retailers closed for the first time since liberal shopping laws were intro-duced in the 1990s after communisms collapse.The change is stirring up a range of emotions in a country where many feel workers are exploited under the liberal regulations of the past years and want them to have a day of rest. But many Poles also experience con-sumer freedom as one of the most tangible benefits of the free market era and resent the new limit.In Hungary, another excommunist country, a ban on Sunday trade imposed in 2015 was so unpopular that authorities repealed it the next year. Elsewhere in Europe, however, including Germany and Austria, people have long been accustomed to the day of commercial rest and appreciate the push it gives them to escape the compulsion to shop for quality time with family and friends instead.The law was proposed by a leading trade union, Solidar-ity, which says employees deserve Sundays off. It found the support of the conserva-tive and pro-Catholic ruling party, Law and Justice, whose lawmakers passed the legislation. The influential Catholic church, to which more than 90 percent of Poles belong, has welcomed the change.Among the Poles who see it as a good step toward returning a frazzled and overworked society to a more a more traditional life-style is 76-year-old Barbara Olszewska, who did some last-minute shopping Sat-urday evening in Warsaw.She recalled growing up in the Polish countryside with a mother who was a full-time homemaker and a father who never worked on Sundays.A family should be together on Sundays,Ž Olszewska said after buying some food at a local Biedronka, a large discount supermarket chain.Olszewska said that before she retired she served cold cuts in a grocery store, and was grateful she never had to work Sundays.The new law at first bans trade two Sundays per month, but steps it up to three Sundays in 2019 and finally all Sundays in 2020, except for seven exceptions before the Easter and Christ-mas holidays.Pro-business opposition parties view the change as an attack on commercial freedom and warn that it will lead to a loss of jobs, and in particular hurt students who only have time to work on the weekends. Even the All-Poland Alliance of Trade Unions opposes it, arguing that it will just push employees to work longer hours Fridays and Saturdays and that the work will be harder because there will be more customers.Poles are among the hardest-working citizens in the European Union and some complain that Sun-days are sometimes the only days they have free time to shop. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, only the Greeks put in longer working hours than Poles in the 28-member European Union. The aver-age Polish employee worked 1,928 hours in 2016, accord-ing to OECD statistics.Another last-minute shopper on Saturday evening, Daniel Wycech, 26, saw more drawbacks than benefits.Its not really a problem to do more shopping a day ahead of time, but if something breaks in my kitchen or bathroom on a Sunday, there will be no way to go to the store and fix it,Ž said Wycech, an accountant loaded down with bottled water, bananas and other groceries.I am angry because this law wasnt prepared properly. It would have been much better to force store employers to make two Sun-days per month free for each worker,Ž Wycech added.Most stores shut in Poland as Sunday trade ban beginsINSIDER Q&ABetting on funds that thrive as rates riseHow wary are investors about rising interest rates? Just look at February.Markets got rattled by signs that inflation might be increasing, raising the possibility that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates at a faster pace. Such a move, investors fear, would put a brake on the economy and potentially hurt corporate profits. Investors seeking to hedge against higher interest rates and increased volatility have other options besides traditional retail banks. Financial services companies, like State Street and BlackRock, which issue exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, tend to also do well when rates rise, says Michael Venuto, chief investment officer of Toroso Asset Management.He says Torosos ETF Industry Exposure & Financial Services exchange-traded fund, or ETF, is a good play for investors when interest rates and market volatil-ity rise. Q: What goes into selecting the compa-nies in the fund?A: The ETF was designed to mirror the growth of the ETF indus-try. Its focused on all the companies that are aligned with this move toward low-cost, transparent tax-efficient investing. So the major players include Black-Rock, WisdomTree, State Street, Charles Schwab. But it also includes things like the exchanges and the liquidity providers. Right now ETFs are 18 percent of the mutual fund world. Thats the trend were trying to capture, but you do get tangential benefits, like rising rates exposure and volatility exposure.Q: How do these financial services com-panies benefit from higher interest rates?A: Companies like a Charles Schwab benefit massively through money market holdings, the cash that people hold. Additionally, when you have rising rates you have money moving. Most of the money when it moves now doesnt go from one stock to another or one mutual fund to another. Its usually going from those instruments to ETFs, because thats just the flow of money today. State Street, our biggest position, is the main cus-todian for most of these money markets, ETFs and things along those lines. So rising rates can be a huge benefit to companies like Schwab and State Street.By Yanan WangThe Associated PressBEIJING „ China said Sunday that it would not initiate a trade war with the United States, but vowed to defend its national interests in the face of growing Ameri-can protectionism.There are no winners in a trade war, and it would bring disaster to our two coun-tries as well as the rest of the world,Ž Minister of Commerce Zhong Shan said at a briefing on the sidelines of Chinas annual parliamen-tary session.China does not wish to fight a trade war, nor will China initiate a trade war, but we can handle any chal-lenge and will resolutely defend the interests of our country and our people,Ž he said.It was Beijings latest statement on problems in Sino-U.S. economic trade and cooperation,Ž alluding to President Donald Trumps plan to impose heavy tariffs on imported steel and alumi-num. Trump said Thursday that he was slapping tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum, temporarily exempting big steel producers Canada and Mexico.Chinese leaders have threatened in the past to retaliate against raised trade barriers, but have yet to take direct action following Trumps announcement.Citing Chinese research-ers, Zhong said the U.S. has been overstating its trade deficit with China by about 20 percent every year. He gave no details on how this figure was reached, but the U.S. and Chinese governments generally report widely differing trade figures because Beijing counts only the first port to which goods go instead of their final destination.The U.S. reported a $375 billion deficit with China last year, so a 20 percent reduc-tion would still be among the largest trade gaps that it has with any country.Zhong blamed the trade imbalance in part on controls over U.S. high-tech exports to China, repeating a Chi-nese claim that Washington could narrow its trade defi-cit if it allowed Beijing to buy more dual useŽ technology such as supercomputers and advanced materials with military applications.China vows to defend trade interests BUSINESS WHAT TO WATCH FOR THURSDAY€ Freddie Mac, the mortgage company, releases weekly mortgage rates, 10 a.m. THE WEEK ON WALL STREETBox o ce glanceEstimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. 1.ŽBlack Panther,Ž $41.1 million ($100 million international). 2.ŽA Wrinkle in Time,Ž $33.3 million ($6.3 million international). 3.ŽThe Strangers: Prey At Night,Ž $10.5 million ($140,000 international). 4.ŽRed Sparrow,Ž $8.2 million ($15.7 million international). 5.ŽGame Night,Ž $7.9 million ($5.4 million international). 6.ŽPeter Rabbit,Ž $6.8 million ($4.8 million international). 7.ŽDeath Wish,Ž $6.6 million ($3 million international). 8.ŽThe Hurricane Heist,Ž $3.2 million ($1.9 million international). 9.ŽAnnihilation,Ž $3.2 million. 10.ŽJumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,Ž $2.8 million.

JOE „ The Florida Department of Environmental Protec-tion (DEP) and the Trust for Public Land closed on 6.6 acres of land last week to expand Salinas Park in South Gulf County.The land was pur-chased from the Patronis Family Trust, and will be part of the DEPs Florida Coastal Access program, the $3.2 million project funded through National Damage Resource Assessment (NRDA) dollars.We are thrilled to be part of conserving this pristine tract of land for the public benefit,Ž said Johnny T. Patronis. Our family has lived in this area for generations and were glad this property will be enjoyed by gen-erations to come.ŽAs unveiled late last year, the preliminary plan for the land, 1,000 feet of which fronts St. Joseph Bay, includes construction of a 1,200-foot boardwalk that will be10-feet wide, ADA compliant and elevated to 15-feet above grade, snaking through the property.A 15-foot high viewing platform, flanked by a pair of 12-foot high platforms, would be constructed on the boardwalk, providing what one DEP manager said would be spectac-ular views of the bay.ŽThree trailheads would provide direct access to the boardwalk from the existing Loggerhead Run Bike Trail along State 30E with amenities such as water and misting stations, bike racks and a bike repair area.The bayside playground would be upgraded and a nature path connecting bayand gulf-side sections of the park.Education kiosks will provide information on natural and cultural resources on the property.This additional prop-erty has been fallow for decades and offers a beautiful mix of mature palms, magnolias and oaks within which the elevated boardwalk will provide unparalleled views of both the Bay and Gulf,Ž said Doug Hattaway, senior project manager for The Trust for Public Land. Were grateful for the vision and partnership of DEP and Gulf County leaders and citizen advocates, without whom this inspirational community park could not be created.ŽAnd as a result of public feedback, two pickleball courts will be constructed as a final amenity.The expansion and construction of the park and amenities is acquired via The Trust for Public Land, an orga-nization which works as a liaison between private and public interests to purchase and preserve sensitive or valuable lands.The California based non-profit, having facil-itated the purchase, will design, permit and con-struct the project under the guidance of a committee of public federal and state stakeholders, such as the DEP.Once completed the park addition will be deeded over to the county, which will also receive 10 years of fund-ing for maintenance and upkeep.The Phase V Early Restoration NRDA funding is the final $40 million from the original $163 million BP oil spilldownpayment for early restoration.The project was one of several whittled from an original pool of 30 park proposals spanning the eight-county area most impacted by the Deep-water Horizon spill.Other park projects are in various stages of design and construc-tion in Franklin, Bay and Escambia counties.Land for Salinas Park expansion purchasedThe elevated boardwalk will enhance views from the park of St. Joseph Bay.[SPECIAL TO THE STAR] By Susannah Bryan Sun SentinelFORT LAUDERDALE „ Researchers are on a critical mission in the heart of Broward County „ bashing in the brains of iguanas in an attempt to eliminate the reptiles that have overtaken South Florida.A 15-member team from the University of Florida is using a tool called a captive bolt gun that sends a bolt into the brain, similar to what is used in the live-stock industry. Theyre also smashing the creatures heads against solid objects, including a truck and boat theyre using to track them down.Most of what were doing is blunt force trauma,Ž said Jenny Ketterlin, a wildlife biologist and research coordinator with UF. Hitting their head very hard against a solid object.ŽDestroying their brains quickly is the most humane way to kill them, she said. Decapitating the animals without anesthesia would kill them but not be con-sidered humane.Their work is part of a $63,000 research project, contracted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, designed to find the best way to remove iguanas and then offer tips to homeowners on how to purge the pests from their yards.Iguanas are an invasive species in Florida and can be a nuisance to homeowners or impact native wildlife,Ž said Carli Segelson, a wildlife agency spokeswoman. Iguanas can feed on native plants and wildlife and dig into areas that may cause erosion.ŽTo combat iguana problem, researchers bash in reptiles heads


** B4 Monday, March 12, 2018 | The News Heraldexpected the competition to be more like a beauty pageant. What she found, and what Director and Chairman of the Azalea Trail Bobbie Massey always says, is that it is so much more.Im really excited to represent the Garden Club with grace and be an inspiration for little girls, especially little girls of color,Ž Banton said.Though a wall of showers was expected to arrive in the area by late afternoon, the elaborate Scarlett OHara-inspiredŽ gowns and hats worn by the con-testants were spared. Panama City Mayor Greg Brudnicki, whose grand-daughter Stella was on the pageants Kids Court, said he asked for an extra reprieve from the rain that morning in church, and while the sun ducked in and out of the clouds, a drop of rain never fell.After the crowning of the queen, the top 10 contestants went on to adorn lawns all along Beach Drive and the Cove neighborhood. Pastor John Friedman, who gave the invocation at the ceremony, said the long-standing pageant helps introduce Panama City to springtime, and that the beautiful dresses and bright colors of the contestants should inspire residents to clean up, fix up and paint up.ŽThis is the classy side of Spring Break,Ž Brud-nicki said.More than a beauty pageant, contestants are judged on their poise, manners and eloquence, along with their GPA. Last week during the preliminaries at the Martin Theater, the 24 contestants were narrowed down to the top 10 finalists, then down to the top five, who faced a one-on-one interview with the judges before a winner was selected. The winners receive a scholarship, funded by calendar sales.Banton inherited her crown from last years winner, Mia Cornelius. Justine Sowell was named Miss Congeniality, while Allison Whitcomb was named runner-up, Elena Harbison second runner-up, Isabella Pacer third runner-up and Reanna Thompson fourth runner-up. QUEENFrom Page B1of methods including a boat, a plane, drones and acoustic monitoring devices.Typically, Blacktip sharks spend summers off Georgia and North Carolina, Kajiura said. Thats where they mate and give birth in bays and estuaries.Then, as the water starts to cool down, (below 71 degrees) these sharks start to move south,Ž he said. But with water temperatures in the Atlantic getting pro-gressively warmer, were seeing fewer and fewer sharks.ŽHistorically large groups of sharks have traveled as far south as Broward County. In prior years, researchers reported as many as 15,000 sharks could be seen in the clear water off the coast of South Florida.Last year, we saw a dramatic decline in the number of blacktip sharks that migrated south,Ž he said. In fact, it was so low that we estimated the population to be about one-third of what we have seen in previous years.ŽAlthough he hasnt surveyed the shark populations off the Central Florida coast, he surmises with fewer of the top level predators in South Florida, more and more of them are lingering in Central Florida.Central Florida is already known for having a high number of shark bites, with Volusia County known as the shark bite capital of the world. And as blacktips are one of the two leading suspects for bites, an increased number of sharks could mean an increased number of bites, Kajiura said.Shark bites in Volusia County have historicallypeaked in the spring and fall, when sharks are migrating north and south.An increase in shark bites was seen in 2016, with 15 bites reported, but that was well below the record of 24 bites in 2008. Only nine bites were reported in 2017. The University of Flor-idas International Shark Attack File, which inves-tigates bite reports, has said several factors can influence the number of bites, including weather, the local economy and the number of swimmers in the water.The two species most often blamed for bitesin Central Floridaare black-tips and spinners. Both are smaller species.

The trip took five days in the Model A.We could only go 35 miles per hour the whole way,Ž he said.The friends spent three days in town. The best job he could find was washing dishes at a local restaurant, so they chose to move on. But before leav-ing, Nickerson decided he wanted to take something to help him remember his visit. Short of funds for a souvenir, he hit upon another idea.We drove down route one and there were these wooden Daytona Beach signs nailed to the trees,Ž Nickerson said pointing to the faded and chipped wooden sign on the table in front of him. I just grabbed it off a tree.There were plenty of them along,Ž Nickerson added with a chuckle. I didnt steal it, I borrowed it!ŽThe sign followed Nickerson to Orlando and St. Petersburg during that trip. In 1939, when Nickerson enlisted in the Air Force, the sign had a home on a family barn in Maine.I was in the Air Force for twenty years,Ž Nick-erson said proudly. I retired right before the Vietnam War, and I only went overseas once for a year and a half in India.ŽDuring his time in the Air Force,Nickerson trav-eled to Virginia, Florida, Georgia and New Hamp-shire. When he retired, he made his permanent home in Turner, Maine. I had the sign hanging up in my barn, but when I got my house I decided to move it there,ŽNickerson said. Good thing I did because that barn burned down and the sign would have burned with it.ŽNickerson built a life for himself in Turner. The sign hung in his home where he raised two daughters and a son.I owned my own grocery store with my wife,ŽNickerson said. It was named Nicker-sons Country Store, and I owned it for 25 years.ŽAfter 81 years, Nickerson decided to return the Daytona Beach sign, delivering it this past week to the home of Joanne Zayszly, who taught elementary school in Maine with Nickersons daughter JoAnn for 47 years.When we told Roy that we were moving to Daytona, he said he had a sign that would work perfect for our condo,Ž Zayszly said. I think its just wonderful that we get to have the sign.ŽPointing to the wall above the kitchens entryway, she added, Its gonna go right there.ŽTo Nickerson, the sign is a memory of a simpler time.There was no spring break back then. No hotels. And the Boardwalk (built in 1938), I dont even remember it being there,ŽNickerson said. It (the sign) is the only souvenir that I brought back from that trip, and the best part is I didnt get caught!Ž1937 Daytona Beach road marker sign returnedRoy Nickerson, 97, holding a sign he took off a tree on his “ rst visit to Daytona Beach in 1937 when he was 17. He returned it this week, saying with a smile, We looked it up, the statue of limitations is up.Ž [NEWS-JOURNAL/NIKKI ROSS]

But the Legislaturetook action on a range of other issues as well.Heres an overview of what happened during the 60-day legislative session. Guns For the first time since Republicans took control two decades ago, the Legislature passed significant gun control measures that raise the age limit from 18 to 21 to purchase long guns, institute a three-day waiting period on gun purchases and ban bump stockŽ devices that allow weapons to simulate fully automatic fire. The same bill included a provision allowing school dis-tricts to adopt programs arming trained school personnel, including some teachers. School safety Lawmakers set aside $400 million to increase school safety measures after a shooter killed 17 people at Marjory Stone-man Douglas High School last month, including an additional $69 million for mental health programs in school and $98 million to harden schools and upgrade other secu-rity measures. Vouchers and teachers unionsTeachers unions were on the defensive this year, with GOP lawmak-ers approving a bill that will require the unions to petition for recertifica-tion if their membership drops below 50 percent of those eligible to par-ticipate. The Legislature also approved two new de facto voucher programs, one paying for students who are bullied to attend private schools and the other paying for private tutoring for struggling readers. Public schools received a fund-ing increase in next years state budget of $101 per pupil. EnvironmentBetween 1990 and 2008 the Florida Legislature set aside $275 million annually on average to buy conservation land through Florida Forever. The Legislature dramatically reduced conservation funding during the Great Recession, but this year lawmakers set aside $101 million for Florida For-ever, the most funding in a decade. Environmen-talists also celebrated the defeat of legislation that would have abolished city and county tree protections, while expressing concerns about a bill heading to Gov. Rick Scotts deskthat allows the state to take over wetland permitting from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. TaxesThe Legislature continued to cut taxes this year, approvinga $168 million package of tax and fee reductions.Andlaw-makers passedanother tax bill that could have big consequences in the future. It will place a con-stitutional amendment on the ballot in Novem-ber that „ if approved by voters „ would require a two-thirds vote of both chambers of the Legisla-ture to raise taxes or fees.Race relationsAfter a year in which there were debates across Florida and the nation about Confeder-ate memorials and other racially charged issues, the Legislature passed a pair of bills that, combined, are a significant victory for those who believe state leaders have not done enough to recognize the oppres-sion African-Americans endured. One bill creates a slavery memorial on the grounds of the state Capitol. The other replaces the statue of a Confederate general in the U.S. Capitol with a statue of civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune. No texting while driving billBack in 2013, after five years of effort, the Flor-ida Legislature approved a bill banning texting while driving. But the legislation only made it a secondary offense, meaning a driver could only be penalized for texting after being pulled over for some other issue. An effort to increase pen-alties for texting while driving and make it a primary offense seemed to be gaining traction this year. It passed the House but stalled in the Senate after lawmakers raised concerns about privacy and racial profiling. College scholarships increasedIncreasing the Bright Futures scholarships that help Florida students pay for tuition at state universities was the centerpiece of a higher education bill that cleared the Legisla-ture this year. The $122 millionboost in scholarship moneyshould ease the student loan debt for future Florida college students. Lawmakersincreased higher education funding in other areas too, con-tinuing a multiyear effort toenhance the university system.Guns dominated, but other big bills passed the Legislature this year too

They drank some beer. Jenny and Ginger were sober, but Penny also drank some hard liquor and got very drunk. I found out about it the following Monday after Penny texted my daughter and Ginger to tell them how upset and disappointed her parents were and that they were demanding letters of apology from all three girls. I thought it was over the top, but realized Jenny was in the wrong. That same day Jenny wrote them an email with a heartfelt apology for disrespecting everyone by drinking in their house, for drinking their beer without permission and for allowing their daughter to get drunk (not being a true friend and trying harder to stop her). Now, the fifth day after the email was confirmed received, my daughter is disappointed that it was never acknowledged. Pennys parents have been known to be dramatic in past dealings with other students and parents. Will you advise me on what I should do? I feel I should let it go and let Jenny figure out how she should choose her friends. She has ditched a friend who wasnt a good influence on her without us forcing her to. „ JENNYS MOM IN CANADADEAR MOM: There is plenty of blame to go around.

While I cant blame them for being upset after coming home and finding their daughter smashed and the other two tiddly,Ž they were wrong to expect Jenny and Ginger to have prevented their daughter from misbehaving. I do not agree that asking for a written apology was over the top. And under the circumstances, I dont think your daughters letter needed acknowledgment.

It was the closest Woods has come to winning in nearly five years.Casey, who started the final round five shots behind, ran off three straight birdies early on the back nine at Innisbrook to take the lead, and he closed with four par saves to post at 10-under 274.No one caught him, giving him his second PGA Tour title and his first since the Hous-ton Open in 2009.Patrick Reed was tied for the lead and appeared headed for a playoff at worst until his approach to the 18th came back down the slope, and his 45-foot birdie putt was so weak that it rolled all the way back to his feet.

College basketball is in trouble.The brackets came out Sunday, replete with the usual fanfare that accompanies Americas biggest office pool. Villanova, Kansas and Xavier joined Virginia as No. 1 seeds, but they, along with the other 64 contenders, will play against the backdrop of an investigation-rid-dled season in which bribes and payoffs made bigger headlines than 3s and layups.The tournament begins Tuesday with opening-round games featuring a matchup of bubble teams UCLA and St. Bonaventure, then kicks into full swing Thursday and Friday at eight sites around the country.The Final Four is March 31 and April 2 in San Antonio. Shortly after that, a commission led by former Secre-tary of State Condoleezza Rice is expected to deliver recommendations from an investigation triggered by an FBI probe that led to charges last fall against assis-tant coaches, agents, employees of apparel companies and others.No fewer than a dozen teams in the tournament have been named either in the FBI investigation or in media reports that allege coaches and others have directed payments and improper benefits to recruits and play-ers „ thus, breaking rules that go to the core of the amateur-sports code that defines both the NCAA and the student-athletesŽ who make this billion-dollar business run. Top of the bracket: A look at the No. 1 seedsEAST: VILLANOVA (30-4) Tournament history: 58-36, 5 Final Fours and 2 National Championships in 37 appearances. The skinny: The Wildcats, who won the 2016 national championship, rank in the Top 5 nationally in scoring, scoring margin (plus-16.2), assist-to-turnover ratio, “ eld-goal percentage and 3-point “ eld goals per game (11.4). Villanova has won three of the last four Big East Tournament titles. MIDWEST: KANSAS (27-7) Tournament history: 103-45, 14 Final Fours and 3 National Championships in 46 appearances. The skinny: The Jayhawks are making their 29th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance „ the longest streak in the history of the tournament. Senior guards Devonte Graham and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk have combined to make 199 of 458 (43.4 percent) from beyond the arc. WEST: XAVIER (28-5) Tournament history: 27-27 in 27 appearances. The skinny: Third-ranked Xavier looks to regroup after its overtime loss to Providence in the Big East Tournament semi“ nal. The Friars rallied from a 17-point second-half de“ cit for one of the best comebacks in Big East Tournament history. Prior to the tournament semi“ nal, the Musketeers had won 14 of their last 15 games. SOUTH: VIRGINIA (31-2) Tournament history: 29-21, 2 Final Fours in 21 appearances. The skinny: Virginia, which started the season unranked and picked to “ nish sixth in the ACC, set a school record for victories, won the conference tournament for the second time in “ ve seasons under coach Tony Bennett and put together one of the most dominant seasons in the storied history of ACC basketball with no sure-“ re NBA lottery picks. Best of the rest: Other teams to watchEAST: PURDUE (28-6) Early season losses to then unranked Tennessee and Western Kentucky in the Battle 4 Atlantis kept Purdue under the radar for a long time, but Matt Painters Boilermakers are a dangerous team that sat atop the Big Ten much of the year. MIDWEST: DUKE (26-7) With four freshmen starters, the Blue Devils might have the youngest „ yet most talented „ team in the country. And Coach K always has Duke ready to play, no matter the matchup. WEST: NORTH CAROLINA (25-10) The Tar Heels played about as well as any team has this season against the best defensive team in the country (Virginia, in the ACC title game), shooting 40 percent and committing only nine turnovers. SOUTH: CINCINNATI (30-4) All of Cincinnatis four losses this season have come against NCAA Tournament teams. The Bearcats rank No. 1 nationally in scoring margin (18.3) and No. 2 in scoring defense (57.3) behind the stellar play of forward Gary Clark. Virginia forward Isaiah Wilkins[ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] See NCAA, C2 See CASEY, C3By Kurt VoigtThe Associated PressST. LOUIS „ John Cali-pari kept telling anyone who would listen that this group of Kentucky freshmen just needed a little more time than most to figure things out.That faith was shaken when the Wildcats lost four straight games last month. But they delivered on their coachs optimism on Sunday.Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 29 points, and Ken-tucky beat No. 13 Tennessee 77-72 for its fourth straight Southeastern Conference Tournament championship.Its the 31st title in tournament history for the Wildcats, whose No. 4 seed in the event was the lowest in Caliparis nine seasons at the school. The Wildcats (24-10) were one defeat away last month from what would have been the longest losing streak in the Calipari era, but they have won seven of eight since „ including their first in three tries this season against the No. 2 seed Volunteers.All in all, its a Kentucky group that appears primed for next weeks NCAA Tournament.Kentucky tops Vols at SEC tourney See KENTUCKY, C3

Arizona, a No. 4 seed in the South, has been roiled by a report that wiretaps caught coach Sean Miller discussing a $100,000 payment to freshman Deandre Ayton. Miller has strongly denied the accusation, though the story line figures to follow the Wildcats through what could be a long run in the tournament.The chairman of the NCAA selection committee, Bruce Rasumussen, has said the investigations played no part of the bracket-filling process.And yet, its hard to imag-ine there werent some sighs of relief in the NCAA offices when some bubble teams names were left out of the field. For instance, Louisville has lost its coach (Rick Pitino), athletic direc-tor (Tom Jurich) and latest national title (2013) in the culmination of scandals that have slammed that program for the better part of this decade.Given the widespread nature of this corruption, theres at least a chance that whoever cuts down the nets in San Antonio could even-tually suffer the same fate as the Cardinals .More certain is that once this party is over, change of some sort will be coming.I dont think its just going to be a little blip on the radar,Ž said John Tauer, the championship-winning coach at Division III St. Thomas in Minnesota, who doubles as a social psy-chology professor. I think this runs deep enough and involves enough people in programs that somethings got to change.ŽFor now, though, hoops „ and there was plenty to discuss after the Big Reveal:The region to watch is the Midwest, which is top heavy with Kansas, Duke and Mich-igan State, who were ranked in the top 4 in the AP preseason poll. It also features arguably the nations most electric player in Trae Young, who led Oklahoma in as a No. 10 seed despite going 2-8 down the stretch. Questioned by Charles Barkley during the selection show about the Sooners, Rasmussen said: Games in November and December count the same as games in February and March.Ž NCAAFrom Page C1


** The News Herald | Monday, March 12, 2018 C3Woods and his massive following went dormant after an opening birdie to briefly share the lead. He went 15 holes with-out a birdie until he brought Innisbrook to life with a birdie putt from just inside 45 feet that died into the cup at the par-3 17th, leaving him one shot behind with one hole to play.Woods played conservatively with an iron off the 442-yard, uphill closing hole on the Copperhead course. From 185 yards, his approach came up some 40 feet short, and his birdie putt to force a playoff was 2 feet short.He closed with a 70 „ the first time since The Barclays in 2013 that he posted all four rounds under par on the PGA Tour „ and tied for second. That was his best finish since he tied for second at that Bar-clays tournament, right about the time his back started to give out. Casey had gone 132 starts on the PGA Tour since winning in Houston, though he had won five times worldwide, including the European Tours flagship event at the BMW PGA Cham-pionship. He had seven top 5s in the FedEx Cup playoffs over the last three years.A month ago, I wasnt sure wed be in the tournament,Ž Calipari said. And then I had to ask ... Does everybody get to go to the SEC tournament? I wasnt even sure wed get here. But I come back to this: We needed to lose those games. We needed to lose four in a row.ŽDespite racing to a 17-point lead in the first half Sunday, the Wildcats seemingly annual SEC Tournament coronation was delayed by a Tennessee team trying to win its first title in almost 40 years.But Gilgeous-Alexander capped his tournament Most Valuable Player per-formance by hitting the clinching free throws with 2.4 seconds remaining, sending the overwhelmingly Kentucky crowd of 18,974 into a wild celebra-tion. The freshman guard finished 10 of 16 from the field with seven rebounds and a pair of steals.Kevin Knox had 18 points for the Wildcats, and Quade Green finished with 10.Shai has the ball in his hands a lot during the game, and hes really grown over the year and be able to get his points and get other people involved,Ž Knox said. I think right now hes playing his best basketball because hes one of our leaders.ŽAdmiral Schofield had 22 points and 10 rebounds for Tennessee (25-8), which was attempting to win its first tournament championship since 1979. Grant Williams added 15 points, while Jordan Bone scored 12 and Lamonte Turner had 10. Cold-shooting VolsA night after hitting 11 of their first 12 shots and 76 percent (19 of 25) in the first half of a semifinal win over Arkansas the Volunteers didnt fare nearly as well early on Sunday. They made only five of their first 25 shots and fell behind 33-16 midway through the first half. Schofield, however, responded by scoring Tennessees final 13 points of the half, cap-ping a 15-3 run that pulled the Volunteers within 36-31 at halftime.We started the game and dug ourselves a hole and, obviously, they were making some shots,Ž Ten-nessee coach Rick Barnes said. We werent playing the way we were capable of; we just werent locked in.Ž Big pictureKentucky: The championship game appearance was the fifth straight for the Wildcats and their eighth in nine seasons under Calipari. Kentucky is 22-3 in the SEC Tourna-ment under Calipari.Tennessee: The Volunteers were picked to finish 13th in the SEC during the preseason, but they finished as the co-regular-season cham-pions with No. 16 Auburn. Regardless of Sundays result, Tennessee already had a spot in next weeks NCAA Tournament. The trip will make Tennessee the fourth school Barnes has taken to the tourna-ment, joining Providence, Clemson and Texas. Up nextBoth teams wait on their NCAA Tournament opponents. CASEYFrom Page C1 KENTUCKYFrom Page C1 Paul Casey hoists the trophy after winning the Valspar Championship on Sunday in Palm Harbor, Fla. [MIKE CARLSON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] The Associated PressThe free agent ace and the Philadelphia Phillies have reached agreement on a three-year contract, two people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Sunday because the deal, reportedly worth $75 million, is pending a physical. Arrieta is joining the Phillies just 2 weeks before opening day.The 32-year-old Arrieta was among several top free agents who didn't get a contract for six or seven seasons in a changing market. The Phillies, who have plenty of money to spend, waited until the price was right for them. Arrieta won the 2015 NL Cy Young Award with the Chicago Cubs and helped them win the World Series the next season. The right-hander was 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA last year. ASTROS 5, METS 2Jacob deGrom made his spring debut for New York, pitching 2 ‡ innings and allowing two hits and a walk.

Both home runs came against Miami prospect Sandy Alcantara, who pitched the last four innings in relief.Jordan Montgomery got the start for the Yankees, pitching 2 ‡ innings and allowing four runs on five hits and two walks. Brian Anderson hit a three-run homer for the Marlins and Cameron Maybin added a two-run shot.

Brent Seabrook added a goal from the right circle on a screened shot with 1:05 remaining „ and 11 seconds after the second portion of Charas penalty had lapsed „ as the Black-hawks ended Bostons six-game winning streak and their own two-game slide.Artem Anisimov scored Chicagos first power-play goal as the Blackhawks went 2 for 5 with the man advantage on Sunday. In a 7-4 loss at Boston on Saturday, the Bruins scored four times in six chances.Nice to have that opportunity with 3 minutes left,Ž said Kane, whose goal was his 25th. I thought the power play moved it around pretty good tonight. We had some chances, had some good looks.ŽAnisimovs goal was his 20th as he reached that mark for the third straight season since the Black-hawks acquired him from Columbus. He provided a screen on Kanes goal as Chicago had men in front of Boston back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin on all three scores.Its something were always talking about,Ž Kane said. The first goal, Artie got the tip on it. On my goal, he took away the goalies eyes. All I had to do was pick a corner.ŽAnton Forsberg made 31 saves, and Jonathan Toews had three assists.Chara scored his sev-enth goal, tying the game 1-1 midway through the third period. Khudobin stopped 36 shots.Chara said his penalty was an accident.I was trying to play the puck,Ž he said. I was just trying to get to that puck before their player did. Its very unfortunate when something like this happens.ŽThe Bruins played without leading scorer Brad Marchand, whos out day to day with an upper-body injury.Marchand, who has a team-high 29 goals and 69 points „ five goals and six assists in his last five games „ was hurt when he collided with Blackhawks forward Anthony Duclair in the first period of Saturdays contest between the teams in Boston.Kanes power play goal lifts Blackhawks over Bruins, 31


** The News Herald | Monday, March 12, 2018 C5 SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFOMAHA, NEB. Buffetts “ rm offers big prizes for NCAA bracketsBerkshire Hathaway employees will have a chance to win as much as $2 million a year for life in their office pool for the NCAA mens basket-ball tournament. But the contest is only open to the roughly 375,000 employees of Warren Buffetts Omaha, Nebraska-based conglomerate.To win $1 million a year for life, employees have to guess the Sweet 16 of the NCAA mens basketball tournament correctly.Buffett says that hell double the prize to $2 million a year for life if either Nebraska or Creighton win the entire tournament.But upsets are common, so the big prizes may be safe.Berkshire also offers a $100,000 prize for the bracket that remains perfect the longest.If more than one person ties in the contest the prize will be split.ANCHORAGE, ALASKAAlaska musher continues to lead IditarodAlaska musher Nic Petit continues to lead the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.He was the first musher to leave the checkpoint in Kaltag early Sunday morning.Petit is a native of France now living in a ski resort town just south of Anchorage. Petit had about a 90-minute lead on the second and third place mushers, Norwegian Joar Ulsom and defending champion Mitch Seavey.Other mushers who have left Kaltag for the 85-mile trip to the next checkpoint in Unalak-leet include Richie Diehl, Peter Kaiser and Ray Redington Jr.The winner of the nearly thousand-mile race is expected early this week in Nome.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.Giants release veteran CB Rodgers-CromartieThe New York Giants cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday. Rodgers-Cromartie and the team failed to rework his contract, which called for him to make $6.5 million in salary and a cap hit of $8.5 million. The 2017 season was a difficult one for the 10-year pro who didnt have an interception and was suspended for one game by then-coach Ben McAdoo for leaving practice without permission.But RodgersCromartie expressed his regret about leaving the franchise in a tweet Sunday.Once a Giant always a Giant right. Thanks for everything, Ima miss my dogs but yall knw me, SEE BALL, GET BALL!!!Ž Janoris Jenkins remains the only proven corner-back on the Giants, with troubled Eli Apple still on the roster and poten-tially slated to replace Rodgers-Cromartie in the lineup. The Associated Press By Jenna FryerThe Associated PressST. PETERSBURG, Fla. „ Sebastien Bourdais wept as he crossed the finish line Sunday for his second consecutive vic-tory at St. Petersburg. The win was a milestone for him in his recovery from serious injuries suffered in a crash at Indianap-olis Motor Speedway.Across the paddock, Robert Wickens fumed at the disastrous turn of events that had cost him a victory in his Indy-Car debut. He dominated the season-opening event and had the win in his grip until contact with Alexander Rossi on a restart took him out of contention.It would have been a fairy tale to finish that well, but sometimes its just not meant to be,Ž Wickens said.Wickens led a race-high 69 of the 110 laps.Even Bourdais, overcome with emotion after winning again on his hometown track, understood that the race had been Wickens to win.I was really happy for Robert and Im heartbroken for him,Ž Bourdais said.Wickens was a star in touring cars in Germany but defected to IndyCar this year at the coaxing of good friend James Hinchcliffe. Although he was one of seven rookies in the 24-car field Sunday, he is 28 and a proven winner.He is part of an all-Canadian lineup at Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, and he and Hinchcliffe were strong the entire weekend. Wickens was only the third driver since 1993 to win the pole for his IndyCar debut „ Nigel Mansell did it in 93 in Surfers Paradise and Bourdais at St. Pete in 2003 „ and the victory would have been a firm announcement of his arrival in the American open-wheel series.Instead, two late cautions gave Rossi a chance to take it away.On a restart with two laps remaining, Rossi tried to dive inside of Wickens entering the first turn. The two cars made contact and Wickens spun off course.I didnt get the best restart in the world,Ž he said. I defended it a little bit, I told myself that if Alex wants to go there, go for it, but hes not going to make the corner. I gave him space on the inside and I guess he just couldnt keep it and slid into me. Its a shame.ŽRossi was not penalized for the contact and finished third.He defended the position, which he has the right to do, but in doing so, in moving the reaction, he put me into the marbles pretty late into the corner,Ž Rossi said. I feel bad because I feel like I could have won and he could have gotten second.They made it very clear in the drivers meeting that the rule on blocking was you cant move in reaction. If he defended the inside ... and then I continued to go to the inside down the white line, then yeah, thats my decision and thats putting my car in danger. But theres no reason why I cant pop and stay next to him. I dont have to be all four wheels in the part of the track that nobody goes on.ŽThe American, who recently appeared on the reality TV show The Amazing Race,Ž said he not spoken to Wickens but imagined that Wickens was upset with him.Wickens said he wanted to speak to series officials because he said the pace car procedure differed on the final restart from the previous one, and he didnt feel he was in control of the field.Bourdais, meanwhile, slid by both cars from third for the victory.We didnt have the fastest car today, but we had consis-tency to get podium,Ž Bourdais said.He acknowledged that his tears came at the realization of how far hes come since May, when he suffered several frac-tures to his pelvis and a fracture to his right hip when he crashed during qualifying for the India-napolis 500.This one is emotional because we had to overcome a few bumps and a ball of fire and a few broken bones to come back to this victory circle,Ž said Bourdais, who completed his rehabilitation months ahead of schedule and was able to return to the IndyCar at the end of last season although doctors had said hed be out until 2018.Bourdais said he never con-sidered not returning to racing.When I got the verdict of what was broken, it was never a question in my mind if I was going to continue,Ž he said. I guess Im glad I did continue.ŽIt was the 37th career victory for the Frenchman, who ranks sixth on IndyCars all-time list. Bourdais trails Al Unser by two wins for fifth on the list.It was the sixth victory for Dale Coyne Racing, the first since Bourdais won at St. Petersburg last year. The team this year has been bolstered by the owner-ship group of Jimmy Vasser and James Sullivan, which reunited Bourdais with his former bosses.Wickens finished a heart-breaking 18th.The race debuted IndyCars sleek new race car that is designed to improve competition, level the playing field and cut costs. Sunday saw a race-record 366 on-track passes, breaking the mark of 323 set in 2008.

Federer saved a set point in the second-set tiebreaker and advanced to face Filip Krajinovic on Monday.Taro Daniel, a 190th-ranked qualifier, upset five-time Indian Wells champion Novak Djokovic 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-1.Djokovic was makings his first appearance since being stunned by Hyeon Chung at the Australian Open. Djokovic sprinted out to a 5-2 lead against the 25-yardold from Japan, but his mistakes began to add up and he finished with 58 unforced errors.It was the earliest loss for Djokovic at Indian Wells since a first-round exit in 2006.Gael Monfils upset No. 15 seed and 2012 runner-up John Isner 6-7 (5), 7-6 (3), 7-5.On the women's side, Ameri-can Amanda Anisimova took down two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 6-2, 6-4 in a match lasting just over an hour to become the first 16-year-old to move into the fourth round at Indian Wells since Viktoriya Kutuzova in 2005.Federer opens BNP Paribas Open with two-day match win Sebastien Bourdais, right, celebrates Sunday after winning the IndyCar Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in St. Petersburg, Fla.
