Citing the Iran nuclear deal and other issues, Trump said he and Tillerson were not really thinking the same.ŽWe disagreed on things,Ž Trump told reporters at the White House „ a diplomatic take on a fractious relation-ship that included reports that Tillerson had privately called the president a moron.ŽAppearing in the State Department briefing room for likely the last time, Tillersons voice quavered as he described successes of his roughly one-year tenure: an economic pressure campaign on North Korea and a new Afghanistan plan.I will now return to private life, private citizen, a proud American, proud of the opportunity Ive had to serve my country.Ž He did not mention Trump „ other than to say that hed spoken by phone to the pres-ident Tuesday while Trump was on Air Force One.He said he would delegate all authority to Deputy Sec-retary John Sullivan, who will serve as acting secretary until Pompeo is confirmed.Trump ousts Tillerson for PompeoSecretary of State Rex Tillerson steps away from the podium after speaking at a news conference Tuesday at the State Department in Washington.

[ALESSANDRA TARANTINO/ ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE] NATION & WORLDBy Julie Watson and Jill ColvinThe Associated PressSAN DIEGO „ President Donald Trump on Tuesday eagerly inspected eight towering prototypes for his long-sought wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and accused California of putting the entire nation at riskŽ by refusing to take tough action against illegal immigration.Trump, making his first trip to California as president, said he preferred a fully concrete wall because it was the hardest to climb, but he noted that it needed to be see-through. He said the first thing he noticed on the drive to the border was the patched-up holes in part of the existing fence. We have a lousy wall over here now, but at least it stops 90, 95 percent,Ž Trump said. When we put up the real wall, were going to stop 99 percent. Maybe more than that.ŽTrumps visit was greeted with peaceful protests by demonstrators both for and against his planned wall. The trip came amid an escalating battle between his administration and the liberal state, which has refused to help fed-eral agents detain immigrants in the U.S. illegally.The president renewed his criticism of Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, saying Tuesday that he was presiding over sky-high tax rates and that the states sanctuary policies put the entire nation at risk.ŽTheyre the best friend of the criminal,Ž Trump said. Thats what exactly is hap-pening. The criminals take refuge in these sanctuary cities and its very dangerous for our police and enforce-ment folks.ŽThe Justice Department last week sued to block a trio of California laws designed to protect people living in the U.S. illegally. Brown accused U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions of going to warŽ with California to appease Trump.After leaving the border, Trump basked in the cheers of U.S. Marines in Miramar, pointing to his work to build up the nations mili-tary. He also suggested there may someday be a space forceŽ fighting alongside the nations military branches.Referencing his 2016 campaign showdown against Hillary Clinton „ who received 4 million more votes than Trump in Califor-nia „ the president vowed that very soon were going to MarsŽ and the nation would not be seeking to explore the red planet had his opponent won.Trump was later attending a high-dollar fundraiser in Los Angeles, where hell stay overnight.Demonstrations were held at the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego, the nations busiest border crossing, where protesters chanted, No ban! No wall!Ž as honking cars and buses cheered them on. Protests were also held on the Mexican side, in Tijuana.At San Ysidro, Jose Gonzalez, 21, stopped to snap a photo of the protesters hold-ing signs, including one that read: Wall off Putin!Ž in ref-erence to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has a seemingly close relationship with Trump.I dont think its really fair how he has the choice to separate us,Ž said Gonza-lez, a dual citizen who lives in Tijuana and crosses the border daily to work at a San Diego ramen restaurant. Army veteran Mark Prieto, 48, shook his head as he walked by the protest.People are so narrowminded,Ž the Riverside firefighter said as the crowd chanted. Finally we have someone who is putting America first.ŽHis wife, Corina Prieto, a nurse who has extended family in Mexico, agreed. Both voted for Trump.I think he is doing a lot of good, like protecting our Border Patrol,Ž she said.Trump was to be briefed on lessons learned from the construction of the prototypes built in San Diego last fall. He was also to meet with border agents and officers to ask what they need, Homeland Security spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said.San Diegos Republican mayor criticized Trumps planned short visit, saying the president wont get a full picture of the city. Kevin Faulconer said a popular cross-border airport termi-nal connecting San Diego and Tijuana shows that building bridges has worked wonders.ŽFaulconer, writing in The San Diego Union-Tribune, also said San Diego police work to protect everyone regardless of immigration status, an apparent dig at Trumps push to target illegal immigration.Trump tweeted about Cali-fornias immigration policies as he flew to the state aboard Air Force One.Californias sanctuary policies are illegal and uncon-stitutional and put the safety and security of our entire nation at risk. Thousands of dangerous & violent criminal aliens are released as a result of sanctuary policies, set free to prey on innocent Americans. THIS MUST STOP!Ž he wrote.Trump views designs for border wall, bashes Calif.President Donald Trump holds a photo of the border area as he reviews border wall prototypes Tuesday in San Diego.

** A6 Wednesday, March 14, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Jay Reeves and Dan AndersonThe Associated PressLOXLEY, Ala. „ Lulled asleep by the humming of their Texas-bound char-ter bus following a trip to Disney World, members of a high school band were jarred awake before dawn Tuesday when the rig ran off a highway and plunged into a deep ravine.One person died, driver Harry Caligone, and about three dozen others were hurt, six seriously, authorities and the bus company said. Interstate 10 was blocked for hours where the accident occurred between Mobile, Alabama, and Pensacola, Florida.The cause of the crash wasnt immediately known, but survivors from Channelview High School in metro Houston described being asleep one moment and tumbling through the air the next.Student DeWayne Benson, 15, told KTRK-TV by telephone he awoke to hear the band director repeatedly say HarryŽ before the bus hit a series of bumps followed by one huge bump.ŽSome students were stuck under seats, some were on top of other stu-dents and theres a lot of panic to get people out,Ž said Benson, who was taken to a hospital but wasnt injured.Students used cellphones as lights to get out and grabbed blankets to help people outside, he said. Temperatures were in the 40s at the time of the wreck, which hap-pened around 5:30 a.m.First responders used ropes to rappel down the more than 50-foot ravine in the middle of I-10 and then had to cut some of the victims from the wreckage, said Baldwin County Sheriff Huey Hoss Mack.The Channelview Inde-pendent School District said 40 students and six adults from the school were on board. Medical officials said at least 37 people, most of them teenagers, were treated at hospitals or other facilities in Pensacola and southwest Alabama for injuries that ranged from minor to very serious.The sheriff said it wasnt immediately clear what caused the bus to enter the grassy median, which abruptly ends at a steep embankment where the interstate passes over Cowpen Creek. First Class Tours Inc., the bus operator, identified Cali-gone as a longtime driver with the company.Channelview Highs graduates include University of Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, who tweeted: Wow, praying for everyone involved! #PrayforChan-nelview.ŽJosh Torres said his 17-year-old sister, Bianca Torres, was sitting at the rear of the bus when the impact of the wreck tossed her forward sev-eral rows. She had pain in her legs and bruising but was otherwise unscathed and taken to a hospital for evaluation, he said.All that she remembers is that she felt a bump, then a crash and then the bus flipping onto its side,Ž Torres said.The interstate was closed down in both directions as the injured were flown to hospitals including emergency rooms in Mobile and Pensacola, Florida, plus a free-standing emergency room in rural Baldwin County, said Chris Elliott, a Baldwin County commissioner.Everybody is being transferred to a hospital to at least be checked out,Ž said Elliott.Torres said his brother, also a member of the Channelview band, was on another bus not involved in the accident. That bus stopped after realizing what hap-pened, but did not allow the students to get off, and eventually contin-ued on to Channelview, a Houston suburb of about 38,000. It arrived at the high school there Tuesday afternoon with a police escort. The bus drove past a throng of reporters and into a part of the campus out of public view.Driver killed, students hurt in Disney trip bus plungeA charter bus sits in a ravine after a deadly crash on Tuesday in Loxley, Ala.

** A8 Wednesday, March 14, 2018 | The News Herald By Mary Clare JalonickThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump on Tuesday praised a draft Republican report from the House intelligence committee that says there was no collusion or coordination between his campaign and Russia, thanking the panel for their conclusion.After a yearlong investigation into Russian meddling, Texas Rep. Mike Conaway announced Monday that the committee has finished interviewing witnesses and that Republicans have already completed a draft report saying there is no evi-dence of collusion. They are expected to share the document with Democrats for the first time on Tuesday.Conaway is the Repub-lican leading the House probe, one of several investigations on Rus-sian meddling in the 2016 elections.The finding enraged Democrats who say Republicans are protecting the president by cutting the probe short. But it thrilled Trump, who told reporters Tues-day morning that the White House is very, very happyŽ with the GOP conclusions.It was a powerful decision that left no doubt and I want to thank the House intelligence committee,Ž Trump said.Conaway previewed some of the reports findings on Monday, but said the public will not see the full document until Democrats have reviewed it and the intelligence community has decided what information can become public, a process that could take weeks. Democrats are expected to issue a separate report with far different conclusions.We found no evidence of collusion,Ž Conaway told reporters, suggesting that those who believe there was collusion are reading too many spy novels. We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings. But only Tom Clancy or Vince Flynn or someone else like that could take this series of inadvertent contacts with each other, or meetings or whatever, and weave that into sort of a fiction page-turner, spy thriller.ŽIn addition to the statement on coordination with Russians, the draft challenges an assessment made after the 2016 election that Russian meddling was an effort to help Trump. The January 2017 assessment revealed that the FBI, CIA and NSA had concluded that the Russian government, at the direction of President Vladimir Putin, waged a covert influence campaign to interfere in the election with the goal of hurting Democrat Hillary Clintons candidacy and helping Trumps campaign.House Intelligence Committee officials said they spent hundreds of hours reviewing raw source material used by the intelligence services in the assessment and that it did not meet the appropriate standards to make the claim about helping Trump. The offi-cials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the intelligence material.Conaway said there will be a second report just dealing with the intelligence assessment and its credibility.The Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a statement soon after the GOP announcement, saying it stood by the intelligence communitys findings. DNI spokesman Brian Hale said the office will review the findings of the committees report.According to Conaway, the report will agree with the intelligence assessment on most other details, including that Russians did meddle in the election. It will detail Russian cyberattacks on U.S. institutions during the election and the use of social media to sow discord. It will also show a pattern of Russian attacks on European allies „ information that could be redacted in the final report. It will blame officials in former Presi-dent Barack Obamas administration for a lacklusterŽ response and look at leaks from the intelligence community to the media.Trump praises House GOP report of no collusion on RussiaBy Gregory Katz and Nataliya VasilyevaThe Associated PressLONDON „ Russia on Tuesday dismissed accu-sations of any involvement in the poisoning of an ex-spy and his daughter as nonsense,Ž saying it will only cooperate with a British investigation if it receives samples of the nerve agent believed to have been used.Police, meanwhile, said the investigation of who poisoned Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, will last many weeks and that they are not ready to identify any persons of interest in the inquiry. The father and daughter remain in critical condi-tion in a Salisbury hospital.British Prime Minister Theresa May said Russias involvement is highly likely,Ž and she gave the country a deadline of midnight Tuesday to explain its actions in the case. She is reviewing a range of economic and diplomatic measures in retaliation for the assault with what she identified as the military-grade nerve agent Novichok.U.S. and European offi-cials were quick to offer words of support for Brit-ain, which will need the backing of its allies if any new sanctions are to have any impact.Her Downing Street office said she discussed the Salisbury incident with U.S. President Donald Trump, and that the U.S. was with the U.K. all the wayŽ in agreeing that Russia must provide unambiguous answers as to how this nerve agent came to be used.ŽThey also agreed on the need for consequencesŽ for those who use heinous weapons in flagrant violation of international norms,Ž the White House said.Earlier, Trump had said: It sounds to me that they believe it was Russia and I would certainly take that finding as fact.ŽRussian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told reporters in Moscow that his countrys requests to see samples of the nerve agent have been turned down. He insisted that Russia is not to blameŽ for the poisoning. We have already made a statement to say this is nonsense,Ž he said. We have nothing to do with this.ŽThe Russian Embassy in London tweeted that it will not respond to the ultima-tum without the samples.Russian officials and media have responded with a variety of accusations against Britain in recent days, including suggestions that it was seeking to influence Sundays election, which President Vladimir Putin is expected to win easily.James Nixey, head of the Russia program at the Chatham House think-tank, said Mays response must be more than symbolic.Russia calls poisoning accusations nonsenseRussian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov gestures during a meeting with South Korean head of National Security Chung Eui-yong at the Russian foreign ministry Tuesday in Moscow.

When it comes to roads, Director of Public Works Neil Fravel said he anticipates the study is going to recommend increasing the citys paving budget. Otherwise, he told the commission, the overall state of the citys road system will continue to deteriorate, as the repairs being made wont be able to keep up with the overall decline. We dont spend enough on our streets,Ž Fravel said.When he started working at the city in 1998, the city budgeted $500,000 annually on roads, the same amount they do today. But in the last 20 years, the price of asphalt has risen from $40 a ton to anywhere from $85 to $100,Ž forcing the list of streets being paved to become shorter and shorter.The half-cent tax sale money approved in 2016, he said, will help during its 10-year tenure, as will some new efforts such as a pavement rejuvenation project, but in the long term, Fravels opinion is the city will need to allocate more funding. Fravel said this years paving list, covering portions of nine streets, will begin today and is expected to be completed in about three weeks. C.W. Roberts has been hired for the work. ROADSFrom Page A1PC PAVING LISTThe following roads in Panama City are set to be repaved this year, with work starting today: € Lombardy Avenue from 19th to 20th streets € Camelot Circle from Harrison Avenue to the dead end € Hillview Circle from Woodmere Drive to the dead end € 13th Street from Chestnut to Wilmont avenues € Fairmont Drive from Cascade to Jenks avenues € Drake Avenue from 12th to 14th streets € North Palo Alto Avenue from U.S. Business 98 to Sixth Street € College Avenue from U.S. Business 98 to Sixth Street € East Eighth Street from Massalina Drive to Hamilton Avenue Tillerson will remain sec-retary in name until March 31, when he formally resigns his commission.In an illustration of the gulf that has long separated Tillerson and Trump, the White House and the State Department vigorously disagreed about whether Tillerson had even been informed of his firing in advance.Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein and other State Department officials said Tuesday morning that Tillerson hadnt learned he was dismissed until he saw Trumps early-morning tweet, and hadnt discussed it directly with Trump. Goldstein said the former Exxon Mobil CEO was unaware of the reasonŽ he was fired and had had every intention of staying.ŽThen Goldstein, hours after making those com-ments, was fired, too.Im a big boy,Ž Goldstein told reporters later. Describing Tillersons mood, Goldstein said: Hes accepting.ŽMultiple White House officials said that Tillerson had been informed of the decision Friday, while he was in Ethiopia. One official said chief of staff John Kelly had called Til-lerson on Friday and again on Saturday to warn him that Trump was about to take imminent action if he did not resign and that a replacement had already been identified. Tillerson canceled his entire schedule that Saturday in Ethiopia, with the State Department telling report-ers he was sick.When Tillerson didnt step aside, Trump fired him, that official said.All of the officials demanded anonymity because they werent autho-rized to speak publicly. I think Rex will be much happier now,Ž Trump said before flying to California.Trumps change puts Pompeo, an ardent foe of the Iran nuclear deal, in charge of U.S. diplomacy as the president decides whether to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement. Trump faces another deadline in May to decide whether to remain in the Obama-era nuclear agreement that he campaigned aggressively against.Tillerson has pushed Trump to remain in the agreement and had been pursuing a delicate strategy with European allies and others to try to improve or augment it to Trumps liking. The president men-tioned differences over how to handle the Iran agree-ment, so we were not really thinking the same.ŽThe reshuffle also comes amid a dramatic diplomatic opening with North Korea, with Trump set to hold a historic meeting with leader Kim Jong Un in May. Pressuring North Korea with sanctions and other isolation measures had been a top Tillerson priority, and he had been one of the administra-tions more vocal advocates for holding talks in some form with the North. When Trump ultimately accepted Kims invitation for a meeting, Tillerson was in Ethiopia, though he said he spoke with Trump at 2:30 a.m., shortly before it was announced.Tillersons departure adds to a period of intense turnover within Trumps administration that has alarmed those both in and out of the White House. Top economic adviser Gary Cohn announced his resignation last week, not long after communications director Hope Hicks and staff secretary Rob Porter both departed near the start of Trumps second year in office.Speculation that Tillerson would be fired grew last fall with the reports of his moronŽ insult, which the secretary state never personally denied.The president said he was nominating the CIAs deputy director, Gina Haspel, to take over for Pompeo at the intelligence agency. If confirmed, Haspel would be the CIAs first female directorPompeo, a former Republican congressman from Kansas, has been one of Trumps most loyal Cabinet members and quickly formed a close bond with the president, coming personally to the White House most days to deliver the Presidents Daily Briefing. Known for his blunt-talking style, Pompeo has already been confirmed by the Senate for his current role at the CIA, making it likely that he will be confirmed for the State Department role.He will do a fantastic job!Ž Trump tweeted.But several Democrats quickly raised concerns about both Pompeo and Haspel, suggesting their confirmation hearings could be contentious. Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, a Senate Intelligence Com-mittee, accused Pompeo of being insufficiently tough on Russia and said hed demonstrated a casual relationship to truth and principle.ŽPompeo said he was deeply gratefulŽ to be nominated and looked for-ward to guiding the worlds finest diplomatic corpsŽ if confirmed. TILLERSONFrom Page A1 Brad Hedgecock brought his two boys out to the event, who were enjoy-ing the bounce house, free food and catching footballs. Its the third year Hedgecock has taken them out.They just like coming out here,Ž he said.The block party is the only event offered by the Chamber that is open to the entire community. We have sponsors pick up the tab,Ž Roberts said. Were not spending our members money.ŽThis was the fourth year the bed races were part of the event. During the race, member businesses raced twin-sized beds down Fifth Street from the Chamber office a block down to Beach Drive and back. Teams consist of one member riding on the bed while four others push or carry it down the road.Teams from Beach Art Group, Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center, Lynn Haven, Port Panama City, Gulf World Marine Park, Ink Trax and Bay Medical Sacred Heart participated, with Ink Trax and Bay Medical the primary sponsors.The event also had a charitable element. Shoes and packages of underwear and socks were collected to benefit local students, pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, through the Junior League of Panama Citys Child Service Center. In appreciation for the dona-tions, Ink Trax gave away free T-shirts.Roberts said the event also helps promote the Chamber and its mission.Were a community development organiza-tion,Ž she said. We ensure that we have a healthy community in order to do business in, whether its via saving our federal courthouse to supporting a surtax. Now we are paving roads like crazy.Ž The Chamber is not just a networking organization for local businesses, Rob-erts said.We give (members) that opportunity to network with one another to sell their products and services. But then on the business side of things, were working to make sure they have a healthy environment to do business in,Ž she said. A healthy community means healthy businesses.ŽWaste Pro had one of the food stands at the event, offering free sausage, pep-pers and onions.Its free food,Ž said Lee J. Kinner, the public relations manager for Waste Pro, a solid waste com-pany. The Chamber does so much for everybody in the community. Its just a small way we could give back. If it wasnt for the Chamber, where would we be?ŽPeople got to sample a wide range of food. Hancock Bank was serving hamburgers and hot dogs, while Jimmy Johns, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Edgewater Beach Resort, Cicis, Popeyes and Smoky Barrel BBQ served up their specialties.The chambers board of directors served as butlers at the event, walking around serving people food.Doug Moore, chairman of the Chamber board, said the event continues to become more popular.Weve gotten a lot more bed racers to partic-ipate every year, and the crowds have continually picked up,Ž he said.

News Herald staff report EDITORS NOTE: The News Herald publishes restaurant closures, health and safety violations on a monthly basisBy Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.comLYNN HAVEN„ Sewage backing up through the floor drains and ill-kept fries led inspectors in February to temporarily halt operations for a Lynn Haven restaurant, according to health inspec-tion reports.It was the only restaurant reported to have been issued an emergency closure in the past month.In February, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations (DBPR) issued an emergency closure for Popeyes Chicken, 1501 Ohio Ave. Sanitation and safety specialists reported finding conditions that could contribute directly to a food-borne illness or injury at the time of their inspection. Popeyes workers, however, corrected the issues in a matter of minutes and was allowed to reopen, state inspectors reported.DBPR specifies the inspec-tions are snapshots of a business at that time only. Popeyes has an active state license and currently is open.On Feb. 12, inspectors reported arriving to the Lynn Haven Popeyes at 12:48 p.m. to find sewage and wastewa-ter backing up through floor drains in the back of the res-taurant. The drains were located under a triple sink near the ice machine, DBPR reported.This area is in the back area of restaurant near mop sink and ice machine,Ž inspectors reported.Officials also reported the fries were being kept at 106 degrees, which is less than the recommended 135 degrees or above. A vacuum breaker also wasmissing at the mop sink faucet, officials reported.Owners of Popeyes did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Employees, who declined to be identified, said they had been in the process of fixing the issues when inspectors arrived, and that was the reason for the brevity of the closure.At 1:01 p.m. the same day, Popeyes was allowed to reopen and conduct business.That was the first emergency closure issued to the business since it opened, DBPR records indicated.The closure added to Janu-arys four restaurant closures in the central Panhandle, whichbrings the total to five in 2018.RESTAURANT CLOSURESFast-food eatery temporarily closedIf you can dream it, you can do it.Ž „ Walt Disney May 6, 1954, dawned cool and breezy at Oxfords Iffley Road Sports Ground, less than ideal conditions for a runner to attempt a world record. But a local medical student knew that two other international athletes were capable of covering a mile in less than four minutes, and soon might, and he wanted the record held by his native England. His accomplishment was stunning, almost like Chuck Yeager shattering the sound barrier, or Neal Armstrongs moon walk. Many experts thought, that like the sound barrier, the four-minute mile was a mark that couldnt be broken by a human being. But the barrier was simply psychological. In the 64 years since young Roger Bannister ran the first sub-four-minute mile, his record has been bettered thousands of times. The current mark is 17 seconds faster than Bannisters. My husband loves track and field, and I will occasionally watch a televised event with him and marvel at the power and grace of my fellow humans. The son of a college friend competed in the Olympic trials in the 400-meter run a while back, and watching him compete was especially exciting. That Bannister, who died recently of Parkinsons disease at 88, became a respected neurological consultant and admired and eventually knighted citizen of Great Britain, adds luster to his accomplishment. Finance imposes psychological barriers as well. The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit 1,000 in 1972. The average investor could not have predicted a DJIA ticking along at 25,000. I stumbled across an article recently about the important psychological barrier that existed when the DJIA was at 10,000. This occurred in March 1999, 19 years ago. The advent of the IRA in 1974, which allowed Americans to shelter income annually in a tax-deferred investment account, was a Roger Bannister moment. Who could have envisioned that our investments could grow untaxed for decades? Another barrier was broken when 401(k) plans were introduced four years later, permitting employees to avoid immediate taxation on a portion of their income. Roth IRAs, profit sharing plans, defined benefit plans and other individual and corporate investment vehicles all represent watershed thinking on the part of economists. Business innovation also is commensurate with benchmark achievements. If youre reading this on a personal computer or iPhone, you are utilizing technology that once was considered impossible and impractical, like the fourminute mile. Who could have conceived 30 years ago that a small Seattle coffee company eventually would own 27,000 stores worldwide? Investors, entrepreneurs and start-up founders in our ever-evolving economy are dreaming, like Roger Bannister, of breaking barriers that the current business climate assures them cannot be bettered.

But the Experience of the FutureŽ has employees han-dling more tasks „ in many cases, they say, without pay raises or adequate staffing. So Dickerson, 23, handed over his spatula for the last time. They added a lot of com-plicated things,Ž Dickerson said. It makes it harder for the workers.ŽMany fast-food employees hop from job to job. But with unemployment so low, turn-over is becoming a problem. Workers are walking rather than dealing with new tech-nologies and menu options. The result: Customers will wait longer. Drive-through times at McDonalds slowed to 239 seconds last year „ more than 30 seconds slower than in 2016, according to QSR magazine. Its also pokier than Burger King, Wendys and Taco Bell.Turnover at U.S. fast-food restaurants jumped to 150 percent, meaning a store employing 20 workers would go through 30 in one year. That figure is the highest since industry tracker People Report began collecting data in 1995.Quick-service restau-rants are having a little more trouble with job openings and finding workers,Ž said Michael Harms, executive director of operations at People Report. Its the pace of work, the pace of technology and the lower wage rate.ŽMcDonalds and its franchisees havent seen an increase in crew turnover during the past year, nor is there a correlation between the new initiatives and turn-over, spokeswoman Terri Hickey wrote in an emailed statement.Together with our owner-operators, we are investing in all necessary training to ensure successful implementation of any changes in our restaurants,Ž she wrote. Just as Experience of the Future modernizes the restaurant experience for our customers, there is also a focus on improving the work experience for restaurant employees.ŽMcDonalds CEO Steve Easterbrook has been push-ing initiatives that have helped turn around comparable sales, which rose 3.6 percent last year in the U.S. But theyve also made it tougher to retain restaurant employees in an already tight labor market.The ball is really in the court of the workers,Ž Harms said. Not the employers.ŽLast year, McDonalds said, it employed 235,000 people, including corporate and restaurant workers. Each of those people generated $97,000 in revenue, compared to about $65,000 the year before.

Their child is receiving a freeŽ education at the expense of Bay County property taxpayers, yet it is too much to ask of a student to recite the Pledge of Allegiance? What am I missing? Below are quotes from the current Bay District Schools Parent Resource Guide: The Pledge of Allegiance is defined: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. The Pledge of Allegiance shall be rendered by students standing with the right hand over the heart. The Pledge of Allegiance shall be recited at the beginning of the day in each public elementary, middle and high school in the state.Ž Each student shall be informed by a written notice published in the student handbook or a similar publication pursuant to s. 1006.07(2) that the student has the right not to participate in reciting the pledge.

If you would like your student to be exempt, please contact your childs school directly. The school will advise you how to proceed with your written request.Ž Maybe the parents that object to the Pledge of Allegiance should instead consider giving thanks to the school for providing a freeŽ education to their child at the expense of the thousands of property taxpayers in Bay County. Or maybe the taxpaying citizens of Bay County should revisit this policy and do away with this exemption? I guess asking people to be patriotic and show respect to our flag is too much to ask of some of our Bay County residents?Steve Geczy Panama CityLETTERS TO THE EDITORSo far, it looks like the Spring Break ordinances are working as designed. How wonderful it is to enjoy the beach without all the debauchery. Lets keep it that way. What a disgrace that the GOP House Intel Committee issues a partisan report saying all our 16 intel agencies are incorrect that Russia colluded and affected the results that made liar Trump POTUS? Ive seen Burnie Thompsons behavior in PCB Council meetings. His actions are outrageous and like a child wanting attention. The election for PCB City Council is critical to keeping the Spring Break ordinances in place. Keep that in mind when you place your vote. Seriously, News Herald: your readers are over 50 percentpro-Trump but your printed Squalls are 90 percentantiTrump. Its losing you readers. Conservative gun ownership should be age 16. Liberals age 80.SQUALL LINE ANOTHER VIEWFlorida leaders finally took some action on guns. While the specifics can be nitpicked, the principle is important. Americans by large majorities favor smart, effective controls on guns to make sure dangerous people „ felons, mentally ill, domestic abusers „ are restricted from having them. This requires giving up the extremes „ those who oppose all restrictions on guns and those who simply want to ban them all. Other nations do not have the Second Amendment. The Supreme Court has ruled there is an individual right to own guns while specifying the right is not unrestricted. Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill with some important elements: € People under 21 could not legally buy a gun. Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland shooter, could not buy a handgun, but he was able to legally buy an AR-15. € Funding for school security will be improved along with more school resource officers. € There is more funding for mental health. There will be more restrictions on keeping guns out of the mentally unstable. Gun violence restraining orders have worked well in California. Police will be authorized to remove guns from people considered a risk. € There will be a three-day waiting period or completion of a background check, whichever is longer. Exceptions would involve the military, police officers and those with hunting licenses or concealed carry licenses. € Bump stocks „ attachments that turn semi-automatics into virtual automatics „ will be banned. That was used by the Las Vegas shooter to spray bullets at crowds. The bill was remarkable given that Florida, as Washington Post columnist Amber Phillips wrote, has some of the loosest gun laws in the nation, according to a ranking by the Giffords Law Center.Ž One controversial aspect of the bill would give school districts the option of arming certain school personnel. It has been wrongly described as simply arming teachers.Ž Actually, exclusive classroom teachers would be exempted. Others carrying guns would have to undergo 132 hours of training, pass a background check and take diversity training. But is that enough? The idea of training non-police personnel for combat situations should raise concerns. Imagine confronting a homicidal maniac „ someone who is prepared to die while killing as many people as possible. This requires something akin to SWAT training. Its a lot more complicated than having a good guy with a gun.Ž Thats why it makes more sense to fund full-time police officers with the proper training to act effectively in active shooter situations. The bill does not ban high-capacity magazines, but it is hard to find a justification for them. At the very least, there ought to be restrictions placed on the ownership of militarystyle weapons. And the background check system needs to be strengthened. Cruz had a history of unstable behavior along with threatening messages. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Florida Times-Union, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse MediaGiving up the extremes on gunsIts not Richard Nixons opening to China. Its not Neville Chamberlains journey to Munich. But President Donald Trumps announcement that hes willing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is one of those decisions that could produce important results, good or bad. The administration portrays this as a triumph for Trumps tough approach, which allegedly has forced the enemy to the negotiating table. But one-on-one negotiations are something North Korea has offered before. Barack Obama declined an invitation. George W. Bush rejected the idea even though the Pyongyang regime, then under Kim Jong Il, said it was ready to discuss giving up its nuclear arsenal. The U.S. has always seen this gambit as an attempt by the North to gain equal status with the worlds pre-eminent superpower and to separate us from our allies in the region. Kim Jong Il, said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in 2006, preferred bargaining solely with Washington because he didnt want to face the pressure of other states that have leverage.Ž Trump essentially has taken the offer that Bush and Rice thought was too accommodating. Bill Clinton tried direct bilateral talks, which yielded an agreement for North Korea to give up its nuclear facilities and the possibility of developing nuclear weapons. That accord, however, eventually collapsed. South Korea and Japan have to worry that, not being at the table, they will be on the menu. Trump, after all, has shown little interest in upholding alliances, and he fulminates about spending so much to defend other countries. Its not hard to imagine his making concessions that would leave South Korea and Japan vulnerable. The concerns are magnified by the shortage of expertise on the U.S. side. Trump has yet to even nominate an ambassador to South Korea, and the State Departments special envoy for North Korea just retired. Our diplomats also have very little time to prepare for a meeting whose consequences could be enormous. It would be a great understatement to say Trump has no demonstrated grasp of the complex issues involved in trying to forge a deal with North Korea. Before going to China, Nixon was a serious student of foreign policy, and he entrusted the groundwork to his formidable national security adviser, Henry Kissinger. Trumps short attention span, impulsive nature and taste for self-promotion are grounds to wonder whether he can handle these talks without losing his shirt or starting a war. Kim, meanwhile, gains just from sitting down with the most powerful person on the planet. All he had to do in return was to say he would stop testing nuclear weapons and missiles and consider full denuclearization. Had Obama agreed to such a session on these lax terms, he would have been vilified as an appeaser. Maybe Kim can be coaxed or coerced into giving up his entire nuclear arsenal „ which the Trump administration repeatedly has said is the only outcome it will accept.

This year it will be almost impossible to do that anyway.The chief of the Bali office of Indonesias Ministry of Communi-cations, Nyoman Sujaya, said Tuesday that all phone companies have agreed to shut down the mobile internet for 24 hours during Nyepi,Ž a day marking New Year on the predominantly Hindu island.That means smartphones wont connect to the internet, shutting off access to social media sites such as Face-book and Instagram and instant messaging apps.Lets rest a day, free from the internet to feel the calm of the mind,Ž said Gusti Ngurah Sudiana, head of the Indonesian Hinduism Society. Many Hindu people are addicted to gadgets,Ž he said. I hope during Nyepi they can be introspective.ŽOn the day meant for reflection, Balinese stay home and stop using electricity. The airport and shops close and guests at resorts are asked to keep noise to a minimum. Beaches and streets on the usually bustling island are deserted except for patrols to make sure silence is observed.Balis religious and civilian leaders, including police and military chiefs, made the request to the central govern-ment earlier this month.It will be the first time the Internet is shut down for Nyepi, which this year begins early Saturday. The same request was made to the government last year but was not implemented.Bali to shush social media for Day of Silence

Rick Scott signed a bill allow-ing certain trained school personnel „ though not full-time classroom teachers „ to carry a firearm in school, sev-eral residents and members of the public spoke out against the program, saying they hope the school district opts not to move forward with it.Dont let the NRA (National Rifle Association) dictate school board policy,Ž said Laura Bjorklund, who said the Florida Legislature traded off the lives of our childrenŽ when they failed to pass a ban on assault-style weapons. Putting guns in the class-room or in the schools just doesnt make any sense,Ž she said.Hiba Rahim, coordinator for CAIR-Florida's (Council on American-Islamic Relations) Northwest Region said there already exists fear between some populations and law enforcement, and she did not want to see that same fear between students and teachers or school staff.We dont want to reach a point where we have to remind people that teachers are our friend,Ž Rahim said.An informal survey sent to Bay District employees two weeks ago showed about a 60-40 split among those who responded favoring Speakers: Keep guns out of classroomsCollege students from Albany State University and high school students from Grif“ n, Ga., play volleyball near M.B.

In addition to an opportunity to argue for funding, the mar-athon meetings give other departments a chance to weigh in.On day one, representatives from human resources, pur-chasing, utilities, community development, the Community Redevelopment Agency and the police department all presented.

The Lynn Haven Police Department arrested her after hospital staff and child care investigators reported concerns that a 2-year-old boy had been subjected to physi-cal abuse. Jones has been charged with child neglect with great bodily harm and was conditionally released in the case, court records stated.LHPD reported the child has a history of injuries that he could not have inflicted upon himself. A child dependency case had been opened in February, and Jones has been court ordered to not have contact with the child without oversight. In the most recent incident, the boy sustained a fractured skull and brain bleeding, officials reported.Officers reported that after the boy was brought to the hospital, they interviewed Jones about how the injuries occurred.Jocelyn stated that while she was making lunch for (the child), he was running down the hall and ran into a wall,Ž officers wrote. After run-ning into the wall, (the child) bounced to another wall and slid to the floor.ŽWoman arrested for boys skull fractureLHPD: Childs injuries considered life-threatening Jones See GOALS, B2See FRACTURE, B6 See GUNS, B6

WILCOX more positions last year, Police Chief Scott Ervin said the goal for fiscal year 2019 will be rebuilding the department, which includes restoring the traffic unit and a community policing unit that hasnt been in effect since 2008. The department also is working with schools, both public and private, to address safety concerns.2. A fats, oil and grease ordinance: Greasy food is proving to be as bad for the citys sewer system as it is for your arteries. Showing pictures of pipes clogged with grease, Utilities Direc-tor Chris Lightfoot asked the commissioners to con-sider passing an ordinance to help control what he says is a growing problem. The code would be based on existing ones in Escam-bia County and Tampa, and would charge commercial businesses that clog pipes by improperly disposing of waste a sizable fee.3. A healthier workforce: Noting that the citys expenditure on health care benefits has been climbing, Human Resource Director Cheryl Furr approached the commission with a plan to make the work-force healthier and save the taxpayers money. Visits to the emergency room have been higher than necessary, driving up costs, she said, pointing to instances when workers went for strep throat or sinus infec-tions. She wants to educate staff about other possibili-ties „ such as urgent care clinics or the ability to call a helpline to speak to a doctor and get a prescription „ to enable them to find more appropriate, cost-effective help. She also talked about bringing primary and preventative care directly to the workers, saying only about 25 percent of city employees receive an annual physical.4. New ASAP building: A long-term goal of the Community Development Department to build a new building for the After School Assistance Program (ASAP) is coming closer to fruition. Director Michael Johnson said they have raised $370,000 toward the proj-ect, which is expected to cost $429,304. The project will be funded entirely by grants and donations, and community development staff have been working toward this goal for almost 10 years. Currently, because of the size of the building, ASAP can help only 25 children. The new building would allow the program to expand to 100 children.5. Streets getting a makeover: The Community Redevelopment Agency is continuing to focus on beautifying neighborhoods. Interim City Manager Jared Jones, who also is overseeing the CRAs, said depending on feedback, fiscal year 2019 could be the year the Harrison Avenue Streetscape gets done. In Downtown North, one of the primary goals will be improving Washington, Roosevelt and Carver drives, where the city purchased the former shotgun houses, to make way for new development. In St. Andrews, he said, they want to finish the 12th Street streetscape project and are looking for other opportunities. The Millville CRA will be focus-ing its attention on Watson Bayou Park.

** B6 Wednesday, March 14, 2018 | The News HeraldOfficials determined the severity of the injury could not have been sus-tained the way Jones described. Much more force would have been required to cause the injury, officials reported, and it was on the back of childs head and could not have been caused by him running into a wall.While reviewing Jones history, officers found that in March 2016, the child had suffered an injury to his abdomen, which caused bruising. Only 3 weeks old at the time, officers found that the child could not haveinflicted that injuryupon himself either. Jones could not explain the cause of that injury, officers reported. Months later, the child also had been treated for being extremely underweight and mal-nourishedŽ because Jones allegedly was not feeding him properly, LHPD reported.At that time, Jocelyn was unable to describe how the child was fed or what the child was fed,Ž officers wrote. These two past incidents demonstrate neglect based on repeated conduct.ŽOfficers said they charged Jones with child neglect with great bodily harm because the current injuries are con-sidered life-threatening, with a high incidence of morbidity and mortality. She is scheduled to appear again in court May 8. FRACTUREFrom Page B1 legislation to potentially arm certain school personnel. While Super-intendent Bill Husfelt said he was not surprised by those results, he was surprised that about 40 percent of respondents would be interested in taking the training to be armed. Husfelt previ-ously has said fewer than 15 employees in the district would be qualified to be armed if the board decides to create the program.Theres no way 40 percent of our employees would be armed,Ž Husfelt said.Though the law went into effect at Gov. Scotts signing, the funding will not be available until July. Husfelt said he has been meeting with area mental health providers to figure out how to boost mental health care availability in schools with the esti-mated $750,000 that will be coming to the district for those services through the bill.Also brought up by speakers was the possibility of a cellphone ban in schools, both for students safety „ as cellphones can be used to detonate devices „ and mental well-being, with cyberbullying through social media being prevalent. Husfelt said students are allowed to have their phones with them in school per Flor-ida State Statute 1006.07. Each district can create their own police and the districts policy is, essen-tially, to allow teachers final say on whether they are allowed to be used in classrooms, as some teachers have students use their phones in class for educational purposes. However, the phones cannot at any time disrupt the learning environment, be used to record images or audio or be used to harass another student or infringe on their rights. Enforcing that policy has become time consuming, but Husfelt said in the current climate, parents want to be able to reach their children instantly in case of an emergency.Theres not a parent, I dont think, in the state of Florida that would say they dont want their child to have a cellphone with them because of what weve gone through in the last month,Ž he said.School Board Chairwoman Ginger Littleton proposed that the district poll teachers as to whether they have been using cellphones as a learning tool and whether they benefit the educational environment and perhaps take a deeper look at the boards policy based on those results.Also announced during the School Board meeting:€ Demolition of the old cafeteria at Bay High School will take place during Spring Break next week. A new STEM building will be built in its place. The board voted to spend $531,202 on that project to move it along.€ This week, the Professional Services Committee will meet to create the short list of construction managers for the STEM building project and the new elementary school in Panama City Beach. Those firms on the short list will be interviewed after the district returns from Spring Break. GUNSFrom Page B1 By Collin BinkleyThe Associated PressFrom Maine to Hawaii, thousands of students planned to stage walkouts today to protest gun violence, one month after the deadly shooting inside a high school in Parkland.Organizers said almost 3,000 walkouts are set in the biggest demonstration yet of the student activism that has emerged after the massacre of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.Students from the ele-mentary to college level are taking up the call in a vari-ety of ways. Some planned roadside rallies to honor shooting victims and protest violence. Others were to hold demonstrations in school gyms or on football fields. In Massachusetts and Ohio, students said they will head to the state-house to lobby for new gun regulations.The coordinated walkout was organized by Empower, the youth wing of the Womens March, which brought thousands to Washington, D.C., last year. The group urged students to leave class at 10 a.m. local time for 17 minutes „ one minute for each victim in the Florida shooting.Although the group wanted students to shape protests on their own, it also offered them a list of demands for lawmakers, including a ban on assault weapons and mandatory background checks for all gun sales.Our elected officials must do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to this violence,Ž the group said on its website.Its one of several protests planned for coming weeks. The March for Our Lives rally for school safety is expected to draw hundreds of thousands to the nations capital on March 24, its organizers said. And another round of school walkouts is planned for April 20, the 19th-year anniversary of the Colum-bine High School shooting in Colorado.The planned protests have drawn mixed reactions from school administrators. While some applaud students for taking a stand, others threatened discipline. Bay District School officials said they had not heard of students planning to walk out but would not object if students chose to do so. Deane Bozeman students will have a school-wide discussion today on their reactions and hopes for security after the Park-land shooting.But districts in Sayreville, New Jersey, and Marylands Harford County drew criti-cism this week when they said students could face punishment for leaving class. In a letter threatening disciplinary action, a Georgia school system cited concerns about confrontations between students over gun rights.If some students wish to use the time to protest guns in schools, others may feel strongly otherwise, and confrontations could ensue,Ž Whitfield County Schools Superintendent Judy Gilreath wrote to parents and students.Other schools sought a middle ground, offering teach-insŽ or group discussions on gun violence. Some worked with students to arrange protests in safe locations on campus. Officials at Boston Public Schools said they arranged a day of observance today with a variety of activities to provide healthy and safe opportunities for students to express their views, feelings and concerns.Ž Students who dont want to participate could bring a note from a parent to opt out.Student walkouts planned across US todaySomerville High School students sit on the sidewalk on Highland Avenue during a Feb. 28 student walkout at the school in Somerville, Mass.

The NCAA Tournament begins and this is their time. By Barry WilnerThe Associated PressAdrian Petersons short stint in Arizona is over. Jordy Nelson long and productive stay in Green Bay has ended, too.Meanwhile, Drew Brees is staying put in the Big Easy, Case Keenum is headed to the Rocky Mountains, and Kirk Cousins will make his first visit as a free agent to Minnesota. The Vikings long have been considered a natu-ral landing spot for one of the most valuable quarterbacks available.One day before the leagues new year begins, veteran running back Peterson was released by the Cardinals on Tuesday, and receiver Nelson „ Aaron Rodgers favorite target „ was let go by the Packers.Seven-time All-Pro run-ning back Peterson began last season with New Orleans but, after barely playing there, was dealt to the Cardinals. Peter-son rushed for 134 yards in a win over Tampa Bay and 159 in a win over San Francisco. In six games, he gained 448 yards on 129 carries for Arizona before being sidelined with a neck injury.Peterson, who turns 33 next week, ranks 12th in the NFL in career rushing with 12,276 yards.Nelson had 550 receptions and 69 touchdown catches in 10 seasons in Green Bay. But his production declined last season with Rodgers sidelined much of the year by a collarbone injury. He missed the 2015 season with a major knee injury, and then was the 2016 Comeback Player of the Year.We cannot thank Jordy enough for all that he has given the Green Bay Packers and our community for the Peterson, Nelson cut; Bree s staysNew Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees reacts with fans after an NFL game against the San Diego Chargers on Oct. 2, 2016, in San Diego. [ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By John ZenorAP Sports WriterAUBURN, Ala. „ Bruce Pearl opened this college bas-ketball season with a renewed confidence that he insists didnt falter even after his top assistant coach was indicted as part of a federal investiga-tion that cost two of Auburns best players their eligibility.Even with his success on the court, his job security remains an open question.He has led the 19th-ranked Tigers to their first Southeastern Conference regular season title since 1999 and ended a 15-year NCAA Tour-nament drought despite the troubling backdrop.But even with his outsized personality, the coach who had almost annual forays to the NCAA Tournament started to waver about this time last year on whether he was the person to get the Tigers to that coveted destination.I thought that this team was hard-working enough, talented enough, experienced enough and by golly they did it,Ž Pearl said.And the 2,000-mile journey that No. 4 seed Auburn (25-7) will make to play Col-lege of Charleston (26-7) Friday night in the Midwest Region in San Diego seems fitting considering the odys-sey Pearl and this team have been through.While it is Auburns second-highest NCAA seed behind the top-seeded 1999 team that reached the Sweet Sixteen, a cloud of uncertainty still hovers over Pearl and the Auburn program. Its lingered since the arrest of Chuck Person, a former Tigers star and NBA player who was charged in the widespread federal probeinto college basketball corruption. Person alleg-edly accepted bribes to steer players to a financial advisor once they turned pro and fun-neled money to the families of Austin Wiley and Danjel Purifoy. Neither played this season.Two support staffers were also placed on leave.No. 19 Auburns Pearl back in tourney despite uncertain fateBy Pat McCannThe News HeraldPANAMA CITY „ Gulf Coast was coming off one of its best weekends of this baseball season when it held Pensacola to four runs over 17 innings of a doubleheader sweep.The Commodores, who last week at this time were patching together a pitch-ing rotation, had a chance to take the early lead in the Pan-handle Conference by beating visiting Tallahassee on Tues-day while co-leader Chipola was idle.Such are the contrasts and unseen parallels of a conference race that is sure to provide them at almost every turn of every week.The totals on Tuesday evening read Gulf Coast 5, Tallahassee 1 at Bill Frazier Field. If youre looking for trends this early, do some research into Floridas mens basketball travails and count the times that the Gators appeared primed to make a run this winter.Perhaps the best advice to conference baseball fans is: A) relax. B) better weather is coming. C) enjoy the ride. Dont try and read too much into any one-game wonders, but enjoy games like Tuesday immensely when your team prevails and appears to be in command.For Gulf Coast, 16-9, 4-1, that meant Trever Kilcrease pitching into the ninth inning while striking out nine and allowing just four hits. Peyton Knight come out of the bullpen when Kilcrease drained his tank when his pitch count hit 125, and unlike his last relief appearance here was in charge while striking out TCCs final two batters.Stevie Moffatt and Alec Aleywine added solo home runs, Jacquez Koonce bounced a two-run single up the middle to break a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning and the victory was accomplished without too much exertion.Kilcrease said a lack of commitment from the stands and emotion on the diamond was noticeable, but he was too busy raising his record to 5-1 while dropping the Eagles to 17-11, 1-4. Pensacola beat Northwest Florida State 5-3 in the other conference game on Tuesday.I hit my spots, except I left one up in the fourth and I was feeling good,Ž Kilcrease said after increasing his inning count above 50 for the season.Coach made a good callŽ on pulling him after two walks with one out in the top of the ninth. Its more important to get a Dub. Otherwise I always want to go nine.ŽMoffatts solo shot came in the bottom of the third and was the first of his two hits off Tallahassee starter and loser Derick Garcia. The Eagles scored their run in the fourth when Cole Vann led off with a single, stole second and came around as Tucker Rayburn and Logan Lacey bounced out on the infield.Gulf Coast made one error behind Kilcrease, but the infield also recorded nine groundball outs.The teams meet back at Commodores edge into rstGulf Coast catcher Josh Nowak makes an acrobatic catch of a foul ball to end Tallahassees sixth inning.

APPearl has yet to submit to a formal interview with a law firm conduct-ing an internal review of his program. That will presumably come after the season. At that time, President Steven Leath and new athletic director Allen Greene could pos-sibly determine his fate.Leath issued a statement to the AP, calling it an incredible season for Auburn basketball,Ž but declining to discuss a timetable.Athletics director Allen Greene and I are working through the NCAA process, and its not appropriate that we comment further at this time on that process,Ž Leath said.Pearl has been down this road before.The coachs history with the NCAA could make his Auburn situation even more pre-carious. He was also at the center of recruiting issue in the late 1980s, when he said then-Illinois assistant Jimmy Collins offered Deon Thomas money and a car.Pearl, an Iowa assistant at the time, secretly taped a conversation he had with Thomas and handed it over to the NCAA. Col-lins was cleared of the charges and said years later he received an apol-ogy from Pearl .Auburn hired Pearl four years ago when he still had several months left under the show-cause penalty from his time at Tennessee.Pearl was cited for unethical conduct for lying to NCAA investigators in June 2010 about improperly hosting recruits at his home, resulting in a three-year show-cause penalty.Hoping for a happier ending this time, Pearl maintains that he prac-ticed what hes constantly preached this season to his team: Focus only on what you can control.I try not to worry about that stuff,Ž Pearl said. My focus was this team, these players, this university. And the other stuff is a process that you have to go through. Its no fun, but its something that happens and you go through it. Im confident that when we get to the other side, were going to be OK. PEARLFrom Page C1

** The News Herald | Wednesday, March 14, 2018 C3past 10 years,Ž general manager Brian Gutekunst said. He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly con-tributed to our success.ŽBrees has agreed to a two-year, $50 million extension with New Orleans, with $27 million guaranteed the first year, two people familiar with the contract told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the agreement has not been announced.Brees is 39 and wants to finish his career in New Orleans, where he has played since 2006, won a Super Bowl and led what has been one of the most productive offenses in the NFL since he and coach Sean Payton arrived.Ill be here as long as theyll have me,Ž Brees said after last season ended.In 2017, Brees completed an NFL-record 72 percent of his passes for 4,334 yards and 23 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He ranked fourth in the NFL in yards passing and the Saints ranked second in the NFL in total offense.Keenum, a backup when the season began, guided Minnesota to the NFC North title and then into the conference championship game. Hell cash in with the Broncos.The 30-year-old Keenum is considered the second-best QB available in free agency after Cousins. He went 11-3 with 3,547 yards passing, 22 touch-downs and seven interceptions. His last-second throw to Stefon Diggs stunned the Saints 29-24 in the playoffs.Denver chose to bypass incumbents Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch and go for Keenum, who cant sign until Wednesday.Six years ago, GM John Elway landed Peyton Manning, the biggest free-agent prize in NFL history, following his release by the Colts and a series of neck fusion surgeries. Manning guided the Broncos to two Super Bowls and won the 2015 NFL championship. Now, Elway hopes another free agent will replicate Manning.Cousins will visit with the Vikings on Wednesday, agent Mike McCartney said. ESPN reported that Cousins will sign with the Vikings, but McCart-ney said no decision has been made yet by his client.The Jets and Cardinals also made sense as fits for the 29-year-old who played consecutive seasons for Wash-ington on franchise tags. New York, however, re-signed last years starter, veteran Josh McCown, and Arizona made a deal with Minnesotas Sam Bradford. In other moves:€ Super Bowl champion Phil-adelphia lost two tight ends, cutting veteran Brent Celek, then saw Trey Burton agree to a four-year, $32 million contract with Chicago. Five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and linebacker Corey Nelson have agreed to one-year contracts with the Eagles. The Bears also will be signing Jacksonville receiver Allen Rob-inson on Wednesday and kicker Cody Parkey.€ Tennessee agreed with New England cornerback and one-time Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler on a five-year deal worth more than $60 million. Agent Derek Simpson told The Asso-ciated Press that Butler will sign the deal including $30 million guaranteed once free agency begins.Butler spent the past four seasons with the New England Patriots and has eight career interceptions. He was benched for the Super Bowl in February.€ Buffalo bolstered its interior defensive line, agreeing to a deal with Carolina tackle Star Lotulelei and re-signing Kyle Williams, who contemplated retirement.€ Kansas City will add wide receiver Sammy Watkins and middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens, filling two glaring needs.The 24-year-old Watkins intends to sign a $48 million, three-year contract with $30 million in guarantees, while the 25-year-old Hitchens agreed to a five-year deal, two people familiar with their decisions told the AP. The Chiefs have needed to pair a playmaking wideout with Tyreek Hill. Watkins, the 2014 fourth over-all pick of the Bills, spent last season with the Rams, where he caught 39 passes for 593 yards and eight touchdowns. NFLContinued from C1Frazier Field 5 p.m. Thursday in the second game of the series. Gulf Coast has won three straight Panhandle games.To get off to a good start (each four-game series) is huge,Ž Gulf Coast coach Mike Kandler said. The first game is very very big.Plus its big confidence-wise.ŽBen Rowdon also had two hits for the Commodores, and Malik Spratling took advantage of his infield single, an errant pickoff attempt and wild pitch to manufacture a run in the eighth.

The redshirt freshman guard was the engine that drove the Highlanders, scoring 12 points to go with career highs in rebounds with 11 and assists with seven as Radford beat LIU Brooklyn 71-61 on Tuesday night to get its first-ever NCAA Tourna-ment win.Its just big to be able to come back home and perform in front of my family and friends that havent been able to see me play,Ž Jones said. And its just been a good feeling.ŽRadford didnt play its prettiest game, but the team from rural southwest Virginia will celebrate briefly before heading to Pittsburgh to play No. 1 seed Villanova on Thursday.

Now he wants to discover what it feels like to win on college basketballs biggest stage.Daum, one of the nations most prolific scorers, heads a list of several notable play-ers from one-bid leagues relishing their chance at the spotlight this week. South Dakota State (28-6) is the No. 12 seed in the West Region and faces Ohio State (24-8) on Thursday in Boise, Idaho.Being able to say I won a game in March Madness would be something Ive dreamed about ever since I was a little kid,Ž Daum said. It would be a blessing to be able to do this.ŽDaums had a couple of shots before. He scored 16 points in a 79-74 NCAA Tournament loss to Maryland two years ago and had 17 points last season when South Dakota State fell 66-46 in the opening round to Gonzaga .Those games provided a rare national showcase for Daum, one of the nations top players from outside the major conferences.After redshirting his first year at South Dakota State, Daum has developed into a two-time Summit League player of the year. The 6-foot-9 junior is one of five finalists for the Karl Malone Award given annu-ally to the nations top power forward.Daum ranks sixth among all Division I players in scoring (23.8) and 14th in rebounding (10.4) this season.

They were coming off a 99-97 victory at Boston on Sunday night.Joel Embiid had 29 points and 12 rebounds and Ben Simmons fin-ished with 10 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for the 76ers (36-30), who had won 13 straight home games.The Pacers and upstart 76ers could meet in the first round of the playoffs „ and the game had some intensity reminiscent of a postseason matchup. Indiana entered third in the Eastern Conference, two games in front of sixth-place Philadelphia. The 76ers are aiming for their first postseason berth since 2012.The Pacers looked ready to close it out when they had the ball with a three-point lead in the final seconds, but Oladipo committed an offensive foul in Indi-anas backcourt to give Philadelphia the ball. Embiid then had a tying 3-point attempt go off the front of the rim.The Pacers led throughout the second half, but they had a hard time separating themselves from Phila-delphia. A key sequence came with just under four minutes left when Trevor Booker blocked Embiids short jumper and Oladipo drained a 3-pointer from the right wing to make it 97-89 with 3:18 remaining.Oladipo, who was averaging 23.8 points coming into the night, finished 11 points on 4-for-21 shooting, including 1 for 4 from 3-point range.The Pacers lost Domantas Sabonis with just under two minutes left in the third quarter when Embiid tumbled into him while trying to grab a rebound. Sabonis limped to the locker room with the help of two teammates. Following a Pacers timeout, Embiid appeared to have words with Indiana coach Nate McMillan.Embiid then picked up a technical with 44.2 seconds left in the period for shoving Lance Stephenson in the back after Stephen-son converted a layup.Earlier, Stephenson took exception to a hard foul by Simmons with 7:53 left in the second quarter, angrily get-ting up and pointing at Simmons.TIMBERWOLVES 116, WIZARDS 111: Karl-Anthony Towns recovered from a shot to the mouth that left him down on the court and “ nished with a season-high 37 points and 10 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a victory over the Washington Wizards. Towns shot 13 for 17, including making all three of his 3-point attempts, and showed no ill effects after getting knocked in the face with about a minute left in the “ rst half. Entering the fourth quarter in this defense-optional contest, the Wizards were ahead 90-82. The hosts stretched that to a game-high edge of 10 points, at 95-85 with 10 minutes left. But a 20-3 run capped by an inside basket from Andrew Wiggins off Towns assist put Minnesota up 105-98 with less than 5 minutes to go.

Some said theyd framed and hung it in the bathroom their guests used. (Problem solved!) I hear from many readers asking me to re-run articles that hold meaning for them. Some say the articles have been saved until they are yellowed with age and falling apart. Eventually, it was suggested they be put together in a booklet. Since so many readers kept the items to re-read, the booklet is titled Keepers.Ž It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby, Keepers Booklet, P.O.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, March 14, 2018 D1By Ari LeVauxMore Content NowAround half-past eight, in Naalehu, Hawaii, I walked into Shaka, the southernmost bar and restaurant in the United States. When I asked for food, the goateed man behind the bar apologized for the fact that the kitchen was closed. What about poke?Ž I asked. That simple question broke the tension between my hunger and his schedule. With an air of relief, he waved me toward Americas southernmost refrigerated Coca-Cola case, which contained several packages of poke (poe-kay), the Hawaiian version of sushi. It consists of cubes of raw fish, most often ahi tuna, tossed in flavorings. Conspicuously absent is any acid like lime juice, which would cook the poke into ceviche. Without such acid, poke is officially raw. In addition to ahi, other Hawaiian fish like ono and mahi mahi can be made into poke. More recently other fish like salmon or yellowtail have been discovered to make great poke, along with octopus, shrimp and other shellfish, both fresh and frozen. Hundreds of restaurants on the mainland have figured out as much in recent years, with the number of poke outlets more than quintupling. There are more than 600 poke-eries nationwide, in almost all 50 states. Until I opened Americas southernmost vintage refrigerated beverage display case, the best poke Id had on island was from ChoiceMart, a grocery store in Captain Cook that receives an early-morning delivery from the venerable Suisan Fish Market, a 110-year-old establishment with its own fleet of boats and a Japanese approach to handling raw fish. Suisans CEO was even interned during the war, after Pearl Harbor when things got real complicated for Hawaiians of Japanese decent. Today Suisans poke is in demand island-wide, a but a batch made in the early morning, even if from the freshest of fish, will be rough around the edges by afternoon. Once the fish is cut crosswise, the expiration clock starts ticking. In fact, Hawaiian poke is regularly made with ahi that isnt fresh, carefully identified as previously frozenŽ in stores. To those of us who dont live in Hawaii, this is your cue that its possible to make poke at home that a Hawaiian would eat. How to eat it Poke was originally a verb that means to cut or slice crosswise into piecesŽ in native Hawaiian. To this day, when ahi is sliced properly the grain is visible. Along with the cubes of fresh ahi, the original poke included salt, seaweed and kukui nuts, aka candlenut, named after the fact that lamp oil can be extracted from them. Over the centuries, other ingredients were incorporated into the palate of poke seasonings: first onions, then tomatoes, and so on. The poke recipe that has taken much of the world by storm in recent years is ahi tuna prepared shoyu-style, aka soy sauce, sesame oil, scallion, ginger, sesame seeds, chili peppers, salt, pepper and sometimes kukui. But any type of fish that can be served raw can be served poke-style, including yellowtail, marlin and salmon. The number of recipes that have been invented boggle the mind and tease the belly, and include the likes of spicy mayo poke, creamy wasabi with pistachios, and kim chi poke made with crab, octopus, shrimp and fish. Hawaiian-style, which includes limu seaweed, salt and ground kukui nut, is popular as well. You can even get smoked, grass-fed Hawaiian beef. Make it your own Americas southernmost poke appeared to be a simple version, little more than ahi tuna with green onions and Maui sweet onions. I asked the man, Do you have anything with which to serve the poke? Even a little ƒ Ž Rice?Ž we both asked, at the same time. Sure,Ž he said, reaching for my poke. A few minutes later he placed a to-go box on the bar, along with a caddy stocked with bottles of soy and Tabasco sauce, and slender yellow packets of Best Foods mayo. Inside the box: two scoops of rice, my poke and a plastic dish of Japanese furikake seasonings, which include small pieces of nori, sesame seeds, salt and particles of dried fish. Together with the Tabasco and mayo from the caddy, I was able to massage the poke and furikake into a spicy ahi place with a decidedly Japanese feel. I brought home a second order and ate the poke on salad greens instead of rice. Im comforted to know that when I head north to my perch on the frozen mainland, Ill be able to find frozen ahi, and make a decent version of ahi poke. A reader wants to find a truly gourmet meatloaf that guests will rave about.Ž Meatloaf just doesnt seem to fall into the gourmet category, but if you know of one that does, please let us know. The following meatloaf is country music star Miranda Lamberts alltime favorite. She recalls her mother, Bev, pulling a stool up to the kitchen counter when Miranda was a small child and making this tasty delight. It also was the favorite birthday dishŽ for her and her brother when they were small. That says a lot, because most youngsters dont seem to like meatloaf. To add an adult touch to this simple meatloaf, how about some Bourbon Mushrooms? I thought about adding some of the mushrooms to the meatloaf, but I changed my mind because some people might not like them. Having them plated around the meatloaf would be best for those who might want just a taste of the mushrooms. By the way, these mushrooms would be a good side dish for almost any kind of meat. I didnt find gourmet meatloaf on my treasure hunt, but I did find many special gemsŽ like the following recipes in the interesting cookbook written by Kelly Alexander, Southern Living ...

** D2 Wednesday, March 14, 2018 | The News Herald By Becky KrystalThe Washington PostThere are plenty of tools in your kitchen that are best treated with some TLC. Knives? Keep em sharp. Nonstick pans? Dont scratch the coating. Glass dishes? No going from hot to cold unless you want to break them. Thankfully, theres at least one item that can take a beating and still keep on going: The durable, reliable sheet pan. This workhorse can survive plenty of abuse, whether its going under a super-hot broiler, being dropped on the floor or living under a stack of other heavy equipment. Its also incredibly versatile and cleans like a dream even after you make a mess of it. Add an inexpensive rimmed 18-by-13-inch halfsheet pan or two (we and others swear by the Nordic Ware Natural Aluminum Commercial Bakers Half Sheet) to your arsenal, and youll never run out of ways to use them. For one particular member of our team, the quarter-sheet pan may be the most versatile of all. Dinner time € Sheet-pan suppers are all the rage these days. The pan conducts heat well with enough real estate for a full meal of meat and vegetables that cooks relatively quickly. € Even if youre not doing a whole supper, sheet pans are ideal for roasting vegetables, especially when you want them to bake and crisp more than steam. € Flipped over, a sheet pan can be used to bake pizza if you dont have a pizza stone or baking steel. Right side up, it makes a killer thickcrust Sicilian pizza. Baking € Youve heard of sheet cakes, right? Theyre great for feeding a crowd. You can also experiment with using sheet pans to make a layer cake, because you can cut one big cake into several pieces to stack rather than trying to slice taller cakes horizontally. Also: Slab pies. € Speaking of pie, baking your pie on a parchmentlined sheet pan will help you achieve a crisped crust and prevent bubbling fruit juices from burning on your oven floor. € Cookies have plenty of room to breathe on a sheet pan, and even with proper spacing, you can still fit a lot on one. Stack two pans together and youve got an insulated setup to keep the bottoms of cookies from over-browning. And unlike so-called cookie sheets that only sport a rim on one edge, you dont have to worry about your goodies sliding off a rimmed sheet pan. A multiuse tool € Combined with a metal wire rack, you can create a setup that allows for air circulation underneath whatever youre cooking, meaning fat can drip away from meat (crunchy bacon!) and breaded foods (onion rings, for example) dont get soggy. The panrack duo also makes a great station for coating cakes in sprinkles or covering other sweets in melted chocolate or ganache, because the extras go through the rack and are contained in the pan.Sheet pan is kitchens most versatile itemBy Ellie KriegerThe Washington PostThis comforting meal of beef and sauteed mushrooms mingling in a velvety, sour creamenriched sauce has the same basic ingredients of a classic stroganoff, but they are re-proportioned so the dish is much better for you, with a balanced richness that satisfies in a lighter way. Here, compared with the traditional recipe, the ratio of beef to mushrooms is flipped. So while there is tender steak in every bite, meaty mushrooms are more of a major player. Regular sour cream „ not reducedor low-fat „ with its uncompromised, cultured, spoon-coating silkiness, gives the sauce its distinctive essence. But this recipe calls for about half of what many recipes call for and does the trick without adding heaviness. Using olive oil instead of butter also helps keep the dish in the healthful zone. Spiked with a tangy hint of mustard, sprinkled with fresh parsley and served over egg noodles (look for whole-grain), its an Old World dinner with a new outlook. You would never know this strogano had a makeoverMushroom and Beef Stroganoff. [PHOTO BY GORAN KOSANOVIC FOR THE WASHINGTON POST] Mushroom and Beef Strogano 4 servings We found No Yolks brand whole-grain egg noodles online via Amazon.com. From nutritionist and cookbook author Ellie Krieger. Ingredients € 12 ounces boneless sirloin steak, trimmed and thinly sliced across the grain € teaspoon kosher salt € teaspoon freshly ground black pepper € 3 tablespoons olive oil € 1 or 2 large shallots, chopped (about cup) € Two 10-ounce packages white button mushrooms, cleaned, stemmed, and sliced (about 6 cups) € 1 clove garlic, minced € 1 tablespoon ” our € 1 cups low-sodium beef broth € 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard € cup sour cream € 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley € Cooked whole-grain egg noodles, for serving (see headnote) Steps Season the meat with teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the beef and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until seared but still pink inside. Transfer the meat with its juices to a plate. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet (medium heat). Add the shallot and cook for about a minute, stirring, until softened. Add the mushrooms, and then the garlic, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms have released their water and it has evaporated. Sprinkle the mushrooms with the ” our and stir until well combined. Add the beef broth and, stirring, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low; add the remaining teaspoon salt and teaspoon pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the mixture thickens and reduces slightly, then stir in the mustard until well incorporated. Add the sour cream, stirring until well blended.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, March 14, 2018 D3By Becky KrystalThe Washington PostWhen I was in physical therapy a few years ago for a small knife injury to my index finger, I was seated next to a very nice gentleman (in front of a TV showing the Food Network, naturally). He laughed when I told him why I was there. He showed me his hand, which had a massive scar between his thumb and index finger. It had been patched up as best could be done, but it still looked gruesome. He had sliced straight through the skin „ and artery, muscle and even down to the bone, if I am remembering correctly „ while trying to remove an avocado pit with a knife. Hes not alone. Traumatic injuries caused by people attempting to slice and pit Instagrams favorite fruit are becoming so common that doctors have dubbed the malady avocado hand.Ž I dont want this to happen to you. Halving The safest, most comfortable way I have found to slice an avocado in half is to put it on its side on a cutting board. Hold the avocado in place with one hand on top and start slicing into the fruit with a chefs knife, with the blade positioned parallel to the board. Youll be cutting along the axis that runs from the fruits top to bottom. Now begin rotating the avocado so the knife starts cutting all the way around the pit. You really dont need to be moving the knife much at all. Your hand moving the avocado is doing all the work for you and, more importantly, not moving ever-closer to the edge of the knife. In short order, you will have made a complete circle around the avocado. Put down the knife and simply twist apart the halves. Pitting Now to the pit. I would like to once and for all quash the myth that the best way to remove the pit of an avocado is with a knife. Its nice that the New York Times recommended against digging it out with the tip of the knife, but I dont understand why it says the rightŽ way is by gently striking the pit with a knife to embed its long edge into the stone.Ž No. No. No! Sure, this looks cool, but in my experience, its totally unnecessary. Why risk a glancing blow where the knife slips and goes into your hand? Why make this more complicated than it needs to be? Grab a spoon. Scoop out the pit. Done. Slicing and peeling At this point, you can do something fun with your avocado halves „ bake eggs in them, for example „ or simply use the spoon to scoop out the flesh. You can use a knife to score the flesh, too, for easy removal, but theres no need to run the risk that the blade will slice through the avocado skin and then into your skin. Simply use the back of the knife blade rather than the sharpened side. Or be even safer and whip out a good old butter knife. If you dont care about keeping the avocado half intact or are looking to achieve some nice wedges, we like the method espoused by chef, cookbook author and TV host Sara Moulton. Proceed with the same horizontal cut as described above. Then, with the knife perpendicular to the board, cut the top side of the avocado from stem to bottom. Flip the avocado over, and repeat on the other side. You end up with four sections; the pit is attached to one, and you can easily pluck it out with your fingers. The sections also make it easy to peel the skin and keep them whole. Just run a spoon between flesh and skin. If your avocado is really ripe, you might even be able to get away with peeling the skin off with your fingers.How to slice up an avocado without ending up in the ER
