The port jobs on average pay $48,892 annually.Triumph funds headed to portPort Panama City is seen Sept. 29, 2016.

** confidence in the possi-bility of tornadoes across northern Alabama had increased.It appears increas-ingly probable the risk for several tornadic super-cells will traverse across northern portions of Ala-bama late this afternoon and through the early evening,Ž the Storm Pre-diction Center said in an update on the situation.An enhanced risk of severe storms covers several large cities across the South, including Nashville and Chatta-nooga in Tennessee; and Birmingham, Huntsville and Tuscaloosa in Ala-bama, forecasters said.In Alabama, any strong tornadoes, golf ball to tennis ball-sized hail and 70-mph winds were most likely in the northern half of Alabama, including all of metro Birmingham. Hail of that size can do serious damage to buildings and cars, Weber said.This is one of those days you want to put the car in the garage if you can,Ž Weber said. The News Herald | Tuesday, March 20, 2018 A3 STORMSContinued from A1Port Director Wayne Stubbs said Monday the Triumph funding would help prevent the port from having to borrow more money for the expansion.This additional help from the Triumph board is very timely, and what it will do for us is allow us to avoid taking on too much debt,Ž Stubbs said. For a port authority our size, if we can avoid having too much debt, then we can continue moving forward and investing in a timely way in improvements.ŽLisa Walters, the chairwoman of the port board, said the project fits in perfectly with the mission outlined in the Triumph legisla-tion, which is to invest in public infrastructure that has a direct eco-nomic benefit to the local economy.ŽShe said the expansion, although it is in Panama City, will have a regional beneficial eco-nomic impact.Rick Harper, a former University of West Florida economics pro-fessor who was hired by Triumph to analyze the applications, told the board on Friday the cost per job of the port project is higher than other state projects. These jobs are highly coveted by states and they do command a higher than average premium for the agencies which are funding them,Ž Harper said.Port infrastructure is expensive, Harper said Monday.In some ways it is a very, very good project because it serves a broad number of poten-tial businesses,Ž he said. It opens up the local economy for additional sorts of businesses, the ones that rely on ocean shipping.ŽAll of the Triumph board members lauded the port application Friday.Ronald Reagan had a great saying when he talked about America being the shining city upon the hill,Ž said Triumph board member Allan Bense. It is a great saying. I can tell you the Port of Panama City is a shining city upon a hill.ŽThe port asked for the $10 million in Triumph funds for the first phase development of the East Terminal. The state has committed $16 million toward the $56 million project. The port has borrowed $12 million for the purchase of the site and committed another $8.7 million from cash reserves.The completion of a new 260,000-squarefoot forest products warehouse, the reinforcement of the bulkhead, the chan-nel deepening and other improvements will require another $15 million, the ports pre-application stated.Bay District Schools has submitted three formal applications to Triumph for workforce programs, including the STEM Workforce Train-ing Center and expansion of its Manufacturing Academy and Haney Industrial Pipefitter program.Harper said Monday the applications are incomplete and need to estimate how many stu-dents would be attending those classes.It helps me get economic contribution of the project,Ž Harper said.Bense said Monday that applicants from many counties are asking for workforce training funds, and a consolidated approach might be in order.I think we need to have an expert in that world come in to look at this from a holistic per-spective,Ž he said. PORTFrom Page A1I didnt know it,Ž she recalled. But I went home and learned it real quick.ŽTwenty years later, clutching a brick and coming to terms with all the memories and emotions suddenly welling to the surface, Palfrey stood by and watched as the building was gutted. A mound of twisted desk chairs,where students once sat for class but now too broken even for donation, stood in the entrance of the gaping maw cut into the buildings wall, ready to be loaded up for disposal.Theres just a lot of memories,Ž Palfrey said. A lot of good memories that happened here, good times in the cafeteria. A lot of memories of people. Remembering the kids that were there. The teachers that are gone. Its sad.ŽPalfrey remembered wrestling matches and the cooks making special fried green tomatoes for the teachers. She remembers the gorgeousŽ terrazzo floors being buffed and waxed before the start of every school year, and watching one class make beautifulŽ prom decora-tions, crafting chandeliers out of the pages of old books.Lavoy Anderson, president of Anderson & Associates, which is acting as contractor for the demolition of the caf-eteria building and the nearby Building 10, said he understands the intense connection many people have to the Bay High campus, as the oldest con-tinuously accredited high school in the state.It was the original school,Ž he said. It came before Rutherford or anywhere else.ŽMuch of the steel from the building will be reused, Anderson said, and the kitchen equipment went to AMIKids Panama City Marine Institute. Anything else usable either went to other local schools or Habitat for Humanity for donation. Theyre even keeping some of the bricks, Anderson said, giving some to local dignitaries and selling some as part of a fundraiser.Originally, the building was scheduled to come down during Spring Break, but Anderson said some delays mean the project wont finish by the time students return next week. Theyll be working all day during vacation, he said, and when school resumes they will switch to an after-school and weekends-only schedule.In the cafeterias place will rise a two-story STEM building, something district officials say is sorely needed if the area is to meet the demands of the current job market. The building started as a half-cent sales tax project, but officials hope Triumph Gulf Coast funding will double the size of the project.In Building 10s place, a new Fine Arts Center will be built, mirroring the new center just finished at Mosley High School.As bittersweet as watching the demolition was, Palfrey said that as a school, they are absolutelyŽ looking forward to the new additions, and the chance to make new memories.Its just part of life,Ž she said. Theres seasons of life and theres seasons to a building. This is its final season.Ž BAY HIGHFrom Page A1A construction worker uses heavy equipment to demolish a brick wall of the Bay High cafeteria.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, March 20, 2018 A5Democrats reject immigration deal as budget deadline nearsBy Andrew TaylorThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Cap-itol Hill Democrats have rejected a White House bid to extend protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants in exchange for $25 billion in funding for President Donald Trumps long-sought border wall as Washington talks on a $1.3 trillion catchall spending bill hit a critical stage on Monday.Disputes remain over immigration enforcement and a smaller infusion of wall funding, as well as a major rail project that pits Trump against his most powerful Democratic adversary, Senate Minor-ity Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.Mondays developments were described by congres-sional aides in both parties who spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks remain secretive.All sides pressed toward an agreement by Monday night, though aides said it appeared more likely that the measure would be unveiled Tuesday for a House vote Thursday. House and Senate action is needed by midnight Friday to avert another govern-ment shutdown.The bipartisan measure is loaded with political and policy victories for both parties. Republicans and Trump are winning a long-sought budget increase for the Pentagon, while Dem-ocrats obtain funding for infrastructure, the opioid crisis and a wide swath of domestic programs.The bill would implement last months budget agreement, providing 10 percent increases for the Pentagon and domestic agencies. Coupled with last years tax cuts, it heralds the return of trillion-dollar budget deficits as soon as the budget year starting in October.While most of the fund-ing issues in the enormous measure have been sorted out, fights involving a number of policy ridersŽ „ so named because they catch a ride on a difficult-to-stop spending bill „ continued into the weekend.As is typical, many or most of the policy riders were melting away. For instance, an effort to add a plan to revive federal subsidies to stabilize the individual health insurance market and help the poor cover out-of-pocket costs under President Barack Obamas health law appeared to be fail-ing. A complicated dispute involving abortion was at fault.President Donald Trump told two Republican senators on Saturday that he supports adding proposals to a huge spending bill that would provide billions in fed-eral subsidies to insurers to help curb health care premium increases.Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Susan Collins of Maine spoke to Trump for an hour on Sat-urday in a call initiated by the two lawmakers, the sources said.Alexander and Collins are among Republicans backing proposals to revive payments to insurers that Trump halted last fall that reimburse the carriers for reducing out-of-pocket costs for many low-earning customers. Those reductions are required by the Obama health law, and insurers have made up for the lost federal payments by boosting premiums.Stuck againBy Mary Clare Jalonick, Zeke Miller and Chad DayThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ More Republicans are telling President Donald Trump in ever blunter terms to lay off his esca-lating criticism of special counsel Robert Mueller and the Russia probe. But party leaders are taking no action to pro-tect Mueller, embracing a familiar strategy with the president „ simply waiting out the storm.Trump blistered Muel-ler and his investigation all weekend on Twitter and started in again on Monday, questioning the probes legitimacy with language no recent presi-dent has used for a federal inquiry. A total WITCH HUNT with massive con-flicts of interest!Ž Trump tweeted.Mueller is leading a criminal probe into whether Trumps 2016 presidential campaign had ties to Russia and whether there has been obstruction of justice since then.Trump was told to cut it out on Sunday by such notable Republicans as Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Then on Monday he was told that firing Mueller would be the stupidest thing the president could doŽ by Orrin Hatch, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee.But Hatch, on CNN, also said he didnt see any need for legislation to protect Mueller. And that sentiment was widely echoed by GOP leaders.In recent months, bills to protect the special counsel have stalled, and Republi-can leaders have stuck to muted statements endors-ing Mueller or denying he is in trouble. So far, that tactic has worked for them as Trump has lambasted the Russia investigation on Twitter but allowed Mueller to continue his work.Democrats say legisla-tion is needed.Immediately,Ž said Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. And Ari-zona Republican Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic, said, If you dont pick this fight, then we might as well not be here.ŽBut GOP leaders saw no reason to leap to stop a firing they dont think is in sight.I dont think thats going to happen so I just think its not necessary, and obviously legislation requires a presidential signature,Ž said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate. I dont see the necessity of picking that fight right now.ŽRepublicans defend Mueller, take no action Special counsel Robert Mueller departs the Capitol on June 21 after a closed-door meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee about Russian meddling in the election and possible connection to the Trump campaign in Washington. [J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE/ ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] The Associated PressMANCHESTER, N.H. „ Unveiling a longawaited plan to combat the national scourge of opioid drug addiction, President Donald Trump called Monday for stiffer penalties for drug traffick-ers, including embracing a tactic employed by some of the global strongmen he admires: the death penalty.Toughness is the thing that they most fear,Ž Trump said.The president traveled to New Hampshire, a state ravaged by opioids and which is also an early marker for the re-election campaign he has already announced. The presi-dent called for broadening awareness about drug addiction while expanding access to proven treatment and recovery efforts, but the backbone of his plan is to toughen the punishment for those caught trafficking highly addictive drugs.This isnt about nice anymore,Ž Trump said. This is about winning a very, very tough problem and if we dont get very tough on these dealers its not going to happen folks. ... I want to win this battle.ŽThe president formalized what he had long mused about publicly and privately: that if a person in the U.S. can get the death penalty or life in prison for shooting one person, a similar punish-ment should be given to a drug dealer who poten-tially kills thousands.Trump has long spoken approvingly about coun-tries like Singapore that have fewer issues with drug addiction because they harshly punish their dealers. During a trip to Asia last fall, he did not publicly rebuke Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, who authorized extrajudicial killings of his nations drug dealers.Outside a local firehouse that Trump visited before the speech, someone compared the leaders with a sign that said: Donald J. Duterte.ŽDrug traffickers kill so many thousands of our citizens every year,Ž Trump said. Thats why my Department of Justice will be seeking so many tougher penalties than weve ever had and well be focusing on the penalties that I talked about previously for big pushers, the ones that are killing so many people, and that penalty is going to be the death penalty.ŽHe added: Other countries dont play games. ... But the ultimate penalty has to be the death penalty.ŽThe Justice Department said the federal death pen-alty is available for limited drug-related offenses, including violations of the drug kingpinŽ provisions in federal law.It is not clear if the death penalty, even for traffick-ers whose product causes multiple deaths, would be constitutional. Doug Berman, a law professor at Ohio State University, predicted the issue would be litigated all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.John Blume, a profes-sor and director of Cornell Law Schools death penalty program, said the Federal Drug Kingpin Act has yielded few kingpinsŽ or major dealers, mostly ensnaring midto low-level minorities involved in the drug trade.Trump calls for death penalty to get tough on drug pushers The U.S. Capitol is shown in the early morning Dec. 22 in Washington.

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: LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ANOTHER VIEW Tim Thompson | Publisher Will Glover | Managing Editor Mike Cazalas | Editor PANAMA CITY VIEWPOINTSDid the Russian government attempt to murder a former spy and his daughter in London? It sure looks that way, and world leaders, including U.S. President Donald Trump, are right to speak out. This tale begins with Sergei Skripal, an officer for Russias Main Intelligence Directorate in the 1990s. Unbeknownst to the Russians, he was also a double agent who worked for the UKs Secret Intelligence Service, or MI6, for about a decade (1995-2004). Russia eventually discovered Mr. Skripals double life and arrested him in Moscow in 2004. He was convicted of high treason in 2006 and received a 13-year jail sentence. Mr. Skripal caught a break when he was included in a massive prisoner/spy exchange between Russia and the United States. This afforded him the opportunity to settle in the UK in 2010 in the city of Salisbury, and hes reportedly become a British citizen. Yulia, his daughter, still lives in Moscow. On March 3, she decided to travel to Londons Heathrow Airport to visit her father. This tale then suddenly took a near-fatal twist. Mr. Skripal and his daughter were both found unconscious in Salisbury on a park bench. Ms. Skripals eyes were reportedly wide open, she was foaming from the mouth and looked as white as a ghost. They were taken to a hospital, where doctors determined they had been poisoned with a nerve agent. British Prime Minister Theresa May told the House of Commons last week the Skripals were poisoned with a militarygrade nerve agent of a type developed by RussiaŽ known as Novichok. Because of Russias long-standing record of state sponsored assassinations,Ž she believes its highly likely that Russia was responsible for the act.Ž Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, went even further. At a Security Council meeting, she said, If we dont take immediate concrete measures to address this now, Salisbury will not be the last place we see chemical weapons used. They could be used here in New York, or in cities of any country that sits on this council. This is a defining moment.Ž She called for immediate concrete measuresŽ by the council to hold Russia accountable.Ž President Trump said it certainly looks like the Russians were behind it, something that should never ever happen and were taking it very seriously.Ž Russia is losing economic power as American technology undermines its dominance in energy, which may explain its increasing desperation to flex its muscles. A united front of international condemnation, combined with economic sanctions that would punish the inner circle of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, might send a message that killing people in other countries with deadly agents is unacceptable. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Providence Journal, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.Toxic attacks by Putins RussiaIf you care about whats left of the Everglades, heres what passes for a victory these days: The state is moving ahead with plans for a reservoir and a cleansing marsh to handle some of the fertilizertainted, algae-spawning deluge that gets dumped from Lake Okeechobee to both coasts every rainy season. In theory the collected water will be scrubbed and sent south to nourish parched stretches of the Everglades, and ultimately, imperiled Florida Bay. Take a moment to celebrate, but dont go wild. At 10,500 acres, the reservoir will be relatively small and so deep (23 feet) that some scientists dont think it can do the job. The design was chosen over better options by the board of the South Florida Water Management District, which under Gov. Rick Scott functions as a policy arm of Big Sugar. As one example, TCPalm reporters exposed how the water district in 2015 allowed a U.S. Sugar lobbyist named Irene Quincey to editŽ and weaken planned regulations on harmful phosphorous pouring out of Lake O. Among her contributions to the final draft was deleting the word enforceableŽ from three key passages. So its no shock the water district bowed to the corporate cane growers this year, too. The original reservoir proposal by Sen. Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican whose tourism-dependent district gets slimed hard by the green algae blooms, called for a 60,000-acre project. That would have been big and shallow enough to deal with much of the fouled lake discharges. However, sugar producers didnt want a larger reservoir because they opposed taking any cane acreage out of production, even if the state paid them for it. Some of Big Sugars subsidized crop grows on land owned by Florida and leased back to the growers. Yet neither lawmakers nor district officials pushed to end those leases so the tracts could be used for Glades restoration. The Everglades Foundation and some other groups that had blasted the smallreservoir concept backed off after the state Department of Environment Protection (DEP) promised strict terms for maintaining safe water quality. If that sounds encouraging, dont forget were talking about another agency castrated by Scott and the Republican leadership in Tallahassee. The priority of the DEPs shriveled staff is fast-tracking development permits, not cracking down on polluters. But lets say a small reservoir that catches and reroutes Lake Okeechobees marathon toilet flushes is better than nothing. The project still must be approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, an often sluggish partner, and also by Congress, which is supposed to fund half of the estimated $1.4 billion tab. If all that goes smoothly, the most optimistic prediction for finishing the reservoir and its 6,500-acre treatment marsh is in eight years. Thats a long wait, and its not as if engineers must invent a daring new concept in drainage. Reservoirs were a crucial feature of the landmark Everglades restoration plan approved by Congress (and well-celebrated) back in 2000. Actual progress has occurred. Elevating segments of the Tamiami Trail to free southward water flow was something few of us thought wed see in our lifetimes. Farther north, new filtering marshes are cleaning some fertilizer from farm runoff. All this happened because smart scientists and dogged bureaucrats overcame maddening hurdles. Some of these folks are still around, working behind the scenes with barebones government budgets. Unfortunately, for those whose lives and businesses are upended by seasonal discharges from Lake O, eight years could be a crushing eternity.Nobody ever said saving the Everglades would be easy Carl Hiaasen Can we get Friday Fest back, please? Definition of incompetence: It took government employees eight days to look at ID cards and discover the names of people killed in the bridge collapse. There is no such thing as clean coal. If it were put through an industrial-size washing machine with Tide and it came out as white as snow, then and only then could you call it clean coal. For Gods sake! How hard is it to say PLEASE and THANK YOU? It is not a foreign language you have to learn. Have some blasted manners! The NRA is about responsible gun ownership. SQUALL LINESay no to Section 4012 of HR 2825 On March 9, the Secretary of State Of New Mexico, Maggie Toulouse Oliver, along with18 other secretaries of state,forwarded a signed letter to the Honorable Mitch McConnell, Senate majority leader, and the honorable Chuck Schumer, Senate minority leader, expressing their concerns regarding unprecedented and shocking language currently included in Section 4012 of HR 2825, the reauthorization of the federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Section 4012 allows Secret Service personnel unlimited access to polling places pursuant to the presidents direction. This is an alarming proposal which raises the possibility that armed federal agents will be patrolling neighborhood precincts and vote centers.Ž Secretary Of State Oliver cites Title 18 of the U.S. code as part of her argument against the Senate passing the proposed amendments to Section 4012, Secret Service Protection at Polling. Title 18 U.S. Code Statute 592 states that whosoever being an officer of the Army or Navy, or other person in the civil, military or naval service of the United States, orders, brings, keeps or has under his authority or control any troops or armed men at any place where a general or special election is held, unless such force be necessary to repel armed enemies of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both; and be disqualified from holding any office of honor, profit or trust under the United States. It has been suggested that Section 592 of Title 18, United States Code, be amended by adding at the end the following: This section shall not present any officer or agent of the United States Secret Service from providing armed protective services authorized under Section 3056 or pursuant to a presidential memorandum at any place where a general or special election is held.Ž These secretaries of state across the country agreeŽ that there is no discernible need for federal Secret Service agents to intrude, at the discretion of the president, who may also be a candidate in that election, into the thousands of citadels where democracy is enshrined.Ž The president shouldnt have any legislated advantage, written or implied at our voting places. We should speak out against President Trumps attempt at giving himself additional powers over our time honored voting privileges by amending Section 592 of Title 18, United States Code. Contact your congressional representatives and let them know Section 4012 of HR 2825 should be rejected.Pelvo White Jr., Marianna

The social media companys stock fell following reports that a data mining firm working for the Trump campaign improperly obtained data on 50 mil-lion Facebook users. The drop in Facebook stock came after the New York Times and the Guardian reported that the firm, Cambridge Analytica, was able to tap the profiles of more than 50 million Facebook users without their permission. Legislators in the U.S. and Europe criticized Facebook and said they want more information about what happened. Investors wondered if companies like Facebook and Alphabet will face tighter regulation as a result.Daniel Ives, chief strategy officer and head of technology research for GBH Insights, said Facebook is in a crisis, and it will have to work hard to reassure users, investors and governments.This is a defining moment for them,Ž he said. It either becomes a blip on the radar and it helps the platform mature... or it becomes the start of something broader.ŽElsewhere, the British pound rose and European stocks slumped after Britain and the European Union said they are getting closer to a deal that will complete Britains departure from the EU in March 2019.The S&P 500 index sank 39.09 points, or 1.4 percent, to 2,712.92.

In a separate move, the administration also slapped sanctions on four current and former senior Venezuelan offi-cials accused of corruption and mismanagement.In an executive order that took effect immediately upon its issuance, President Donald Trump declared illegal all U.S. transactions related to Venezuelan digital currencies, coins or tokens. The prohibition applies to all people and companies subject to U.S. jurisdiction. The move follows the introduction last month of a Venezuelan cryptocurrency known as the petro,Ž for which the government says it has received investment com-mitments of $5 billion.In the executive order, Trump said it was an attempt to circumvent U.S. sanctionsŽ imposed for democratic backsliding.The Treasury had said in January that the petro appeared to be an exten-sion of credit to Venezuela and warned that transac-tions in it may violate U.S. sanctions.In February, cashstrapped Venezuela became the first country to launch its own version of bitcoin, the petro, in a move that President Nico-las Maduro celebrated as putting his country on the worlds technological forefront.The petro is backed by Venezuelas crude oil reserves, the largest in the world, yet it has arrived on the market as the socialist country sinks deeper into an economic crisis marked by soaring inflation and food shortages that put residents in lines for hours to buy common products.Maduro had announced late last year that he was creat-ing the digital currency to outmaneuver U.S. sanctions preventing Venezuela from issu-ing new debt.Bitcoin and other digital tokens are already widely used in Venezuela as a hedge against hyperinflation and an easy-to-use mechanism for paying for everything from doctor visits to honeymoons in a country where obtaining hard currency requires transactions in the illegal black market.The government has promised that Venezuelans will be able to use the $60 coins to pay taxes and for public services. But with the Venezuelan minimum wage hovering around $3 a month, its unlikely citizens will buy in large amounts.In its own statement on Monday, Treasury said it was hitting the four current and former Venezuelan officials with sanctions that freeze any assets they may have in U.S. jurisdictions and bar Americans from doing business with them.The four include Americo Alex Mata, a director of Venezuelas National Bank of Hous-ing and Habitat and coordinator of Maduros 2013 campaign, Willian Antonio Contreras, the head of the body that oversees price controls in the country, Nelson Reinaldo Lepaje, the head of the Office of the National Treasury, and Carlos Alberto Rotondaro, the former president of the Board of Directors of the Venezuelan Institute of Social Security.Trump bans use of Venezuelan cryptocurrencyIN BRIEFHARRISBURG, PA.Gov. to put $35M toward broadband expansionDemocratic Gov.

That young man didnt deserve to die or get robbed. Those was never my inten-sions (sic).ŽJones asks for mercy several times in the two-page, hand-written letter, saying that, if given the opportunity, he would like to enroll in college or join the military to make a difference in society, possibly by helping establish programs for youth offenders to lead them on a road to success instead, as myself, to regretfullness felt from the heart.ŽIn sworn testimony given to the State Attorneys Office as part of the case, Jones said he, his two co-defendants Demarcus Giddens and Gertavious Canada, and several others made the four-hour drive to Panama City Beach from Auburn, Ala., last August with no particular plan in mind or any hotel room booked. After spending some time at the beach, Jones said the group met a group of Arnold High School students at the Taco Bell on the intersection of U.S. 98 and Thomas Drive. Jones said he asked the group if he could buy some marijuana, and one of them made a call. As the group walked across Wildwood Road to the nearby CVS, Jones said Giddens hatched the plan to rob the students.According to that testimony, Jones was around the side of the CVS scaling upŽ or weighing some marijuana when he heard a scuffle and saw Giddens confront Price „ who had arrived at the CVS moments before „ with a firearm, putting the gun to his chest and pulling the trigger. At the sound of the gunshot, Jones said he panicked and punched the male who delivered the marijuana, stealing his watch and his phone before fleeing with Giddens.Jones also said in his testi-mony that he knew Giddens had the firearm, believed to be a Draco AK-47 pistol, in his backpack during the trip.Jones has a sentencing hearing set for April 2. All three men will be in court for pretrial on May 7.Man involved in fatal shooting admits to huge mistakeMARIANNAVictim in Jackson County wreck dies A Chipley woman involved in a wreck in Marianna on Thursday has died from her injuries, according to the Florida High-way Patrol. Accord-ing to FHP reports, Rachel Walls, 25, was trav-eling north on Pennsylva-nia Avenue in Marianna and attempting to turn left into the Marianna Fire Depart-ment when Madison Chafin, 20, of Cottondale, also trav-eling north on Pennsylvania Avenue, failed to stop or slow down and struck Walls vehicle from behind, sending her vehicle into the path of a truck traveling south on Pennsylvania Avenue driven by John McCoy, 73, of Marianna.The right rear of Walls vehicle collided with the front left side of McCoys truck, sending both vehicles sprawl-ing across the roadway. Walls was transported to Jackson Hospital, where she died from her injuries on Saturday. McCoy was taken to Jackson Hospital with minor injuries, while Chafin was uninjured.FHP reported charges are pending.CHIPLEYChipley man gets 40 years in stabbing deathEight months after he was charged with fatally stabbing Wendell Holmes at an assisted living facility, Chris-topher Kelly on Monday was sentenced to 40 years in prison.The Washington County Sheriffs Office reported Kelly, 34, had been held without bond since his arrest on a charge of second-degree murder.The sheriffs office said in a news release that deputies responded to a 911 call on June 24 at Tropical Paradise Assisted Living Facility and was told one client had physically attacked another client and was bleeding.ŽArriving deputies quickly were approached by a man with blood on his hands and clothing,Ž who immediately told deputies, I killed him,Ž according to the news release. That man, deputies said, was Kelley.The release said Kelley apparently believed Holmes had stolen money from him and confronted him about it.PARKERParker City Council meets todayThe Parker City Council will hold its regular meeting starting at 5:30 p.m. today at City Hall, 1001 W.

NOEL GRAY PHILLIPS JR.Old drama means new windowA deputy responding to a disturbance is told by the complainant that the suspect showed up at her residence in an attempt to start a fight with her husband ... (but) her husband did not go outside and that the two just yelled at each other through the front door.ŽThe wife says her hus-band told the man he just needed to leave,Ž but as he was walking away, their kitchen window broke.Ž The wife says the man got into a vehicle and left with another woman.The wife advised she went outside to see what broke the window and observed her sons Red Huffy tricycle lying up against the apartment wall. She stated that she was approached by her neighbor who stated that she saw the suspect throw the tricycle against the wall but did not see that it broke the window.ŽThe neighbor told the deputy she could hear yelling, which caused her to look up, and she then saw a white male walking away from the apartments, pick up the Red tricycle and throw it at the apartment wall. She stated that the tricycle only hit the stucco wall and was not near the kitchen window. I had her show me where on the apartment wall the tri-cycle hit and it was about two feet to the left of the window and about six inches below the height of the window.ŽThe deputy reported it didnt appear there was criminal intent to break the window, but they still couldnt figure out why it would break, but the wife then remembered that the window already was cracked before the inci-dent began.The deputy then spoke to the husband, as to why (the other man) showed up to try and fight him. He would only state that it was over old drama.Ž Methy businessA deputy on patrol last week spotted a man and a woman sitting in a vehicle behind a closed business.I exited my marked patrol car and observed the white female passenger lift the front of her pants and place a clear baggie with an unknown substance down the front of her pants,Ž the deputy wrote. I asked the female to exit the car and asked her what she put in her pants. The female denied putting anything down her pants. Eventually the female admitted to placing a baggie of methamphetamine down her pants. The female pulled out a clear baggie of methamphetamine.Ž The case is turned over to investigations.

There will be elms and live oaks. Weve already started planting those.ŽThere also will be weeping willows for the pond and larger 30-foot trees coming, Anderson said. The miniature azaleas have been put up since azaleas planted by local civic clubs were taken out by a previous city government admin-istration. Sheffield Park also has new pathways accessible for people with disabilities.The amphitheater „ which was moved from the center of the park to the back corner near Pennsylvania Avenue and got a new roof ear-lier this year „ will open April 6 for a concert to kick off the citys Spring Concert Series. The city is keeping a tight lip on who the musical act will be since its a surprise.This green space is going to be great for our Spring Concert Series,Ž Anderson said Monday. It has a sprinkler system. Its golf course-quality grass. Its very soft, so the children can get out here and play volleyball or dodgeball or football. ... Just two days ago it was sand. Youll be able to bring your lawn chairs and spread your blankets on this.ŽThe area in front of City Hall also has been turned into a green space, with ongoing dis-cussions about how the city ultimately wants it to look. The restrooms will be upgraded so they look newŽ and modern,Ž Anderson said.Anderson said she has had a lot of positive feedback. Numerous people on Facebook complimented the changes, including Danielle Mulick, who said the park looks absolutely gorgeousŽ and she cannot wait to take my family and enjoy this beautiful park and space.ŽAnderson said Sheffield Park is pretty much operational right now.Ž The April 6 concert is free and starts at 5:30 p.m.The renovations are part of development in Lynn Haven, including the Rails to Trails project which will turn old rail-road tracks into walking and biking paths and a splash pad coming to Kinsaul Park. PARKFrom Page B1the Bahamas for the competition and was leading the pack before Mondays races began. I was able to be consistent more than anything else. It was just light and the start lines were crowded, difficult to get off.ŽThirty-five sailors, ranging from 40 to 87 years old, were on the water Monday jockeying for best start position based on wind, current and maneuverability, as in some ways the race begins even before the buzzer soundswith captains positioning their vessels. False starts were called on two races as almost half the boats were blown over the start line before the race began, and at one point the line needed to be reset to remain perpen-dicular to the wind.Weather and wind are part of the sport. On Sunday, light winds created a challenge for competitors looking to build speed. On Monday, fog delayed the start, then a lack of wind, then a rainstorm and by the time racing could start in the afternoon, winds had picked up to between 10 and 15 knots.The first buoy almost always is directly into the wind, and you cant sail straight into the wind. You have to sail at about a 45 degree angle and zigzag to get there,Ž said Gail Turluck, who had traveled from Mich-igan. But the wind isnt exactly perfect either, so you try to guess which way it will shift or time it.Ž The one thing you can count on, she said, is that it never will be the same.For most, it was the first time they had sailed in St. Andrew Bay. Mar-tinborough called it a nice spot.ŽThe St. Andrews Bay Yacht Club has hosted several other similar competitions in the past, but this is the first time the Sunfish division, which moves around every year, has come to Panama City. Starting Thursday, the Sunfish Class Associations National Championship at Midwinters will start. Competitors will be looking to secure one of the three qualifying slots for the 2019 Pan Ameri-can Games in Lima, Peru, an event similar to the Olympics.All the racing will take place on the bay and is visible from places with an open view of the bay such as the Panama City Marina and Beach Drive.

** B4 Tuesday, March 20, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Zac Anderson Gatehouse Media FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ The National Rifle Association is lambasting Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran, a potential GOP candidate for governor, for supporting legislation that includes gun control measures.Marion Hammer, the NRAs Florida lobbyist and past president of the gun rights group, sent out an email blast to NRA members Monday that accuses Corcoran of treacheryŽ for backing a bill that raises the age for purchasing long guns in Florida to 21, institutes a three-day waiting period for purchasing such guns and bans so-called bump stocksŽ that simulate fully automatic fire.Hammers email states that Corcoran added insult to injuryŽ during an interview last week. During the interview, Corcoran said the gun legislation is a major vic-tory for gun rights supporters because it also includes a pro-vision that creates a pathway for school districts to arm certain employees, including some teachers.Corcoran said the bill ends the insanity of gun free zones on our school campuses.ŽCorcoran tried to justify his treachery by ignoring the damaging gun control he supported and then claimed the effort to arm school employees makes it one of the greatest Second Amend-ment victories weve ever had because it ends gun free zones on school campuses, Ž Hammer wrote, adding: That is complete nonsense.ŽIf Corcoran runs for gover-nor he first must face off in a primary with Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, both of whom have said they do not support the legislation lawmakers passed in response to the shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last month. The NRA is influential with many GOP primary voters.NRA accuses Corcoran of treachery for supporting gun billBy Jim SaundersThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Saying it is critical to stop the addiction in the beginning,Ž Gov. Rick Scott on Monday signed a high-profile bill designed to prevent patients from getting hooked on powerful opioids.Flanked by House leaders and law-enforcement officers at the Manatee County Sher-iffs Office, Scott approved the measure as the state continues grappling with drug overdoses that have surged in recent years. The bill is designed, at least in part, to prevent patients from getting addicted to prescription painkillers and then turning to street drugs such as heroin and fentanyl. Ive met a lot of families all across the state who are deal-ing with drug abuse,Ž said Scott, who declared a public-health emergency last year because of the opioid issue. I have a family member thats dealt with both alcoholism and drug abuse, and I can tell you its very difficult for a family.ŽLawmakers unanimously passed the bill (HB 21) on March 9, the final full day of the annual legislative session. Perhaps the highest-profile part of the bill would place limits on prescriptions that doctors can write for treatment of acute pain. Doctors in many cases would be limited to writing prescriptions for three-day supplies, though they could prescribe up to seven-day supplies of controlled substances if medically necessary.Ž Cancer patients, people who are terminally ill, palliative care patients and those who suffer from major trauma would be exempt from the limits.Some physicians objected during the legislative session to such limits. But House Speaker Richard Corcoran, a Land O Lakes Republican who took part in Mondays bill-signing event, defended the approach.It (the bill) also says no longer will we prescribe just blanketly 30-day prescriptions. Now well say its a three-day prescription, and then you have to come back and warrant (it),Ž Corcoran said. Is that an inconvenience? Yes. Is an inconvenience worth saving 50,000 lives nation-wide? Absolutely.ŽAnother high-profile part of the bill will require physicians or their staff members to check with a statewide database before prescribing or dispensing controlled sub-stances. In the past, Florida has not required physicians to use the database, known as the prescription drug monitoring program. The goal of the database is to prevent addicts from visiting multiple doctors or pharmacies to get supplies of drugs.Opioids have caused thousands of deaths in Florida in recent years. In 2016, for example, fentanyl caused 1,390 deaths, heroin caused 952 deaths, oxycodone caused 723 deaths, and hydrocodone caused 245 deaths, according to a House staff analysis.House Commerce Chairman Jim Boyd, a Bradenton Repub-lican who sponsored the bill, described it as another step to curbing this epidemic.ŽI grew passionate about this a couple of years ago because I just saw what it was doing,Ž Boyd said during the billsigning event at the sheriffs office. Theres not a person in this room who doesnt have a family member or a friend of a family that hasnt been affected by this epidemic.ŽScott signs bill targeting opioid addictionOxycodone-acetaminophen pills are pictured. Abuse of painkillers, heroin, fentanyl and other opioids across the country has resulted in tens of thousands of children being taken from their homes and placed in the foster care system.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, March 20, 2018 B5Destin candidates quick to remove campaign signsBy Jim Thompson315-4445 | @Jimtnwfdn jthompson @nwfdailynews.comDESTIN „ Well within a single day after the March 13 city election in Destin, the vast majority of the hundreds of campaign signs placed by the two mayoral candidates and the five candidates vying for three open council seats had been removed from the citys roadsides and neighborhoods.A city ordinance gives candidates 21 days from election day to get their signs down. But candidates, whether by force of tradition or a desire to keep streets as attractive as possible to tourists, routinely have taken far less time to remove them.Its really not a problem here in the city, and we dont expect it to become one,Ž said Doug Rainer, the Destin governments public information manager.This year, victorious mayoral candidate Gary Jarvis, a local restaurateur and charter boat captain, took a novel approach to ensuring that his signs came down quickly.On Facebook, Jarvis announced a contest in which he awarded 1 point for every yard-size sign collected, 5 points for retrieving his 3-by4-foot signs, and 10 points to anyone taking down one of his large 4-by-8-foot signs. The person collecting the most points would get a dinner for two with him and his wife at Brotulas, a Destin restaurant operated by his son.Everybody thought it was a great idea,Ž he said. And as things turned out, two winners had been determined by the end of election night.One of Jarvis own deckhands, A.J. Nemiac, teamed up with local charter captain Scott Burke to collect most of Jarvis campaign signs. Late on election night, Jarvis returned home from a victory party to find his driveway filled with signs, including at least one of his large 4-by-8 signs.Itll be a nice evening,Ž Jarvis said of the upcom-ing dinner.Jarvis is recycling his signs, a strong hint of plans „ or lack thereof „ for his political future.I have no plans to go through this again,Ž he laughed.Incumbent Mayor Scott Fischer, who lost his bid for re-election, was up with some supporters at 8 a.m. on the day after the election to get his signs collected. Based on some interest in his signs by people who wanted to re-use them for various purposes, including their own upcoming campaigns, Fischer left his signs on a Mountain Drive lot and gave people a deadline to come and pick them up.It was the first time hed had anything like that happen, Fischer said.This was all new,Ž he said.Another Destin candidate, victorious city council contender Skip Overdier, got the earliest start in taking down his campaign signs, even before voters headed to the polls last Tuesday. I started Monday,Ž he said. Overdier spent part of the day before the elec-tion taking down signs on the outskirts of the city.Overdier had only about 70 signs spread across Destin.I hate them,Ž he said. I think money could be better spent.ŽPrebble Ramswell, another victorious Destin council candidate, also got an early start with her team in getting her cam-paign signs collected.We started taking them down election night,Ž she said. Within a matter of hours, most of Ramswells signs were gone.The city looks great!Ž Ramswell said Thursday.But Ramswell, like a couple of other Destin candidates, had some pre-election helpŽ in getting rid of the signs.A lot of them disappeared during this campaign,Ž she said. Ramswell placed 300 signs across Destin, and estimated that by elec-tion day, half of them had disappeared. Like Jarvis, Ramswells plans to recycle her signs „ unlike her previous campaign, when she put them in storage „ hints at her political future.Last time, I kept everything,Ž she said. This time, I kept a few as souveniers.ŽThe other victorious city council candidate, Rodney Braden, worked through Friday to get his signs collected and put into storage. Braden had put out 200 yard signs, in addition to eight 4-by-8-foot signs.Teresa Hebert, who came up short in the at-large Destin council balloting, wasted little time in retrieving her 100 or so signs from Destin roadsides. With the elec-tion over, and spring vacationers descending on the town, theres no reason not to get the signs down quickly, she said.Its out of respect to our citizens,Ž Hebert said.Elsewhere in the area, campaign signs also rou-tinely come down soon after election day. In Valparaiso, which also held municipal elections last Tuesday, candidates are required to post a $100 deposit before placing signs. After the election, candidates have a week to collect their signs. If they dont, they forfeit their deposit, City Manager Carl Scott said.Most of our signs are already up and gone,Ž Scott said Friday.Tradition against trashiness By Wendy Victora 315-4478 | @Wendyvnwfdn wvictora@nwfdailynews.comJAY „ A 13-year-old boy faces an attempted premeditated murder charge, as well as arson and burglary charges.Ethan Marsh-Hual was taken to a Florida Department of Juvenile Justice facility following his arrest Sunday by the Santa Rosa Sheriffs Office.According to his report, the seventh-grade boy intentionally set one fire in another familys garage and three other fires on their fence, an electrical box and a screen door. The boys parents told investigators he had told them what he did.Four victims were home at the time of the fire, but were not injured. A child in the house woke up her father, who used a fire extinguisher and then a garden house to put out the garage fire.The boys parents allowed him to be inter-viewed by authorities on video camera. During the interview, Marsh-Hual told them that he and a boy who lived in the house he had attempted to burn had been friends but had gotten in a fight. The fight involved one of the boys vomiting on the other boys mailbox and apparently both boys talking and laughing about the other boy at school, the report said.The boys had hung out the day of the fire, playing video games and riding bikes. Marsh-Hual said he could tell the other boy was getting upset toward the end of the day because his face was getting red. He said he knew a fight was going to pop up.ŽHe said he went home at 7 p.m. for dinner, but set his alarm for midnight. After his alarm went off, he went back to the other boys house and started four fires, includ-ing one in the garage that he fueled by putting a propane tank on it, as well as some lawn chairs.After he was done, he said he took off running and then made his way back to his own home, where he washed his hands and face before going to bed.The investigator asked him if he cared that other people in the house could have died. His answer was redacted from the report.13-year-old faces attempted murder charges Destin Councilman Rodney Braden collects his campaign signs from a lot in Destin. Braden said he will be saving the signs for possible future campaigns. A city ordinance gives candidates 21 days after election day to remove their signs, but candidates traditionally have collected their signs far more quickly. [NICK TOMECEK/DAILY NEWS]

Forrest came off the bench in both games in Nashville but is second on the team in min-utes played in the tournament with 58.The nephew of former Flor-ida State football star Amp Lee and the cousin of two FSU tennis players, Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, For-rest is averaging 12.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.0 blocked shots per game and delivered clutch plays down the stretch in FSUs 67-54 victory over Missouri and the 75-70 upset victory over region top seed Xavier.His contributions have been sorely needed with a groin injury that has limited Terance Mann, the Seminoles leading scorer and rebounder entering the game, to only 40 minutes. And Forrest has filled Manns role as a versa-tile backcourt player who has made contributions to every category on the stat sheet.Forrest had 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and four steals against Xavier; and 10 points, six rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocked shots against Missouri. He also has had only three turnovers and has made 10 of 15 free throws.Chipleys Forrest the glue for FSU in Sweet 16 runFlorida States Trent Forrest goes up for a dunk against Missouri in their “ rst round game in the NCAA Tournament on Friday in Nashville, Tenn.

[JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] Leaders Gulf Coast and Chipola meet this a ernoonBy Pat McCannThe News HeraldPANAMA CITY „ Not even Mondays downpour could put a damper on this Gulf Coast vs. Chipola softball matchup in the Panhandle Conference.The nationally ranked teams, and lone remain-ing conference unbeatens, were scheduled to play Monday afternoon at Joe Tom King Field. The show-down, instead, was postponed to 4 p.m. today at the Lady Commodores new venue that opened earlier this month.The Lady Indians of Chi-pola come in nationally No. 1 ranked and 32-0, 4-0 in the PC. Gulf Coast is No. 4, and in addition to also being 4-0 has a longer win streak at 33 games, the Lady Commodores 33-1 overall.They kept their streak intact with an improbable doubleheader sweep of Northwest Florida State on Saturday in Niceville. The improbable part was linked to a six-run rally in the top of the seventh inning of the opener.The Lady Commodores trailed 7-2 after four innings, and were behind 7-4 entering the seventh. They still trailed 7-6 when down to their last out.Jamilah Johnson responded with a baseloaded triple to give Gulf Coast the lead, and Hayden Lindsay doubled her in to cap a six-run uprising and 10-7 win.The Lady Commodores carried over that momen-tum with six runs in the first inning of the second game and won 9-4.It was quite the game ƒ obviously they just didnt quit,Ž Gulf Coast coach Beth Wade said of the first-game comeback. Theyre down, but never out of it. They just keep fighting, fighting, fighting.In the second game they came out hot, had a couple hits, a double off the wall, then Alexa Shiver had a three-run homer. Hayden Lindsay also had a homer in the second game.ŽWhereas Amie Hutchison and Kaylee Raines had been doing a lot of the damage offensively this season, Wades summation alluded to another of the strengths she has pointed to this spring. Its seemingly a different player stepping forward every week, as underscored by a .379 team batting average and 1.90 ERA.K-Dub (third baseman Kristina Warford) had a big doubleheader (five hits, three runs batted in) and has only made a couple errors on the year,Ž Wade said.Rain delays PC softball showdownSee FSU, C3 See SOFTBALL, C3 See TOURNEY, C3

They also held the Seminoles to 3 of 25 on 3-pointers and 33.8 percent from the field.Buffalo (29-5) wont have far to go for the regional semifinal as it will face defending cham-pion and second-seeded South Carolina on Saturday in Albany, New York.It is the first time in eight games that Florida State (26-7) has dropped an NCAA Tourna-ment contest when it has been the host.Buffalo seized control late in the first half. The game was tied at 28 with 2:05 remaining when the Bulls closed the half with a 10-2 run, including eight straight points by Dillard, to take a 39-30 lead at halftime.The Bulls would extend the lead to 14 with a 7-2 run to start the third quarter.

She shut them down in the seventh inning of Game 1 and threw three good innings in Game 2.ŽWhich brings Gulf Coast to top-ranked Chipola, whose statistical dominance this season brings to mind UConn in womens basketball, or perhaps closer to home, the Gulf Coast program reined by Roonie Scovel.The Lady Indians swept Pensacola 8-0, 9-0 on Satur-day and yielded only one hit in 11 innings. Both games were halted by the run rule, the opener after five innings and the nightcap after six.The shutouts were the 17th and 18th on the season as Chi-pola lowered its team ERA to 0.46. Both Krystal Goodman and Morgan Goree are 13-0 in the circle, Goodman with 122 strikeouts in 88 innings. Goree averages one per inning.The Lady Indians also run at will with 198 stolen bases thus far. Thats an average of six per game, and 80 more than speedy Gulf Coast in two fewer games.Chipola hits .364 as a team with much more weighty power numbers than Gulf Coast. Most impressive, how-ever, are the shutouts and the fact Chipola had six in succes-sion at one stage and currently has three straight. No team has scored more than three runs on the Lady Indians all season, and opponents have reached that total just three times.Obviously there could be a danger of both teams wanting to go all-in with the largest share of the conference sched-ule yet to play.I keep telling them that there are 20 conference games and none counts more than the others,Ž Wade said. You cant put too much importance on one game.Its hard to tell that to an 18-year-old kid, but you try to get them to look at the big picture. Itll probably be the team that controls their emo-tions the best; handles pressure the best. It (doubleheader) is important, yes, but its not the be-all, end-all.Ž SOFTBALLFrom Page C1Forrest doesnt make most of his hay from the outside. Hes adept at slashing to the basket and drawing fouls and leaves the 3-point shooting to other players, attempting only 13 this season.Forrest said it begins with defense. Hamilton has praised Forrest for being among the most savvy defen-sive players among his deep group of guards and he played a key role in limiting Xaviers Trevon Blueitt, who had 29 points in last years 91-66 NCAA tournament rout of FSU, to only eight points on 2 of 8 shooting.We just kind of credited the defense, really, being able to get stops and being able to get out,Ž he said. I feel like that just transitioned right into our offense being able to get stops.ŽHamilton said Forrests main contribution goes beyond statistics.Theres no question that Trent does a very good job of distributing the ball and making good decisions,Ž he said. Trent does a great job defensively, does a great job seeing the whole floor. He makes a tremendous differ-ence when hes on the floor.ŽForrest made some of his biggest plays at the most important times last week.After Missouri cut a 22-point halftime deficit to 50-44 with 9:53 left in the game, Forrest assisted on P.J. Savoys 3-point shot. A few minutes later, he grabbed a defensive rebound, raced down the court and grabbed an offensive rebound off a miss by Mfiondu Kabengele, and was fouled, making both shots to give FSU a 65-44 lead.Xavier held a 66-57 lead with 5:37 left but the Seminoles went on an 18-4 run to close the game. During one sequence, Forrest made a layup with 5:04 left to cut the lead to 66-61, then made a steal and went coast-tocoast for another layup. He was fouled and completed the 3-point play to make it 66-64 with 4:21 left.Then, with 1:12 remaining, Forrest made the assist on another 3-point by Savoy that put FSU ahead for good, 71-70.Forrest began getting more playing time in February and made key contributions in one of the most significant regular-season victories for FSU, 80-76 at Louisville. He had 10 points, nine rebounds and five assists.Forrest continued his knack for producing in FSUs biggest games as he had 16 points and four assists in an 81-79 over-time victory over Clemson. He scored six points in over-time, including the basket that put the Noles ahead for good, and then scored twice to put FSU ahead by three in the closing minute.He had 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in a loss to N.C. State, then scored a career-high 21 points, with 10 rebounds and five assists in a must-win situation against Boston Col-lege to close out the regular season.In his last 11 games, Forrest is averaging 10.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.9 steals, only 1.7 turnovers and is shooting .545 from the floor.

[JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] The Associated PressDUKE 66, GEORGIA 40: Leaonna Odom scored 16 points and “ fth seed Dukes defense was dominant, holding fourth seed Georgia to two second-quarter points in a womens NCAA Tournament second-round win. Lexie Brown and Erin Mathias each had 14 points for Duke (24-8), which will play UConn in the Albany Regional on Saturday. Georgia (26-7) made only 1 of 19 shots in the second period. The Lady Bulldogs set season lows for fewest points in a period and game and lowest “ eld-goal percentage (24.0) in a game. The Lady Bulldogs missed their “ rst 13 3-pointers before Simone Costa sank a 3 midway through the “ nal period. UCONN 71 QUINNIPIAC 46: Napheesa Collier scored 23 points and top-seeded UConn beat in-state neighbor Quinnipiac to advance to a 25th straight Sweet 16. Azura Stevens added 14 points and Kia Nurse chipped in with 13 for the Huskies (34-0), who found themselves in a much slower-paced game than their 140-52 “ rst-round rout of Saint Francis (Pa.). But Connecticut was not threatened in this one either. They opened with a 9-2 run and never trailed. Jen Fay had 12 points to lead the ninth-seeded Bobcats (28-6), who saw their school-record 23-game winning streak snapped. CENTRAL MICHIGAN 95, OHIO STATE 78: Presley Hudson scored 28 points and No. 11 seed Central Michigan stunned No. 3 Ohio State to earn the schools “ rst ever trip to the Sweet 16. Cassie Breen threw the ball high in the air as the clock wound down and the joyous Central Michigan players jumped, screamed and hugged as they celebrated the biggest win in school history. The Chippewas had won their “ rst tournament game ever in Saturdays “ rst-round upset of No. 6 Louisiana State. With the upset of Ohio State, they advance to face No. 2 Oregon in Spokane, Washington, on Saturday. Central Michigan (30-4) out-rebounded and out-hustled Ohio State, played taut defense, hit a seasonhigh 14 3-pointers and kept the Buckeyes at bay late in the game. MISSISSIPPI STATE 71, OKLAHOMA STATE 56: Victoria Vivians scored 23 points, Teaira McCowan added 21 points and 18 rebounds and Mississippi State earned a hard-fought win over Oklahoma State in the second round of the womens NCAA Tournament. Top-seeded Mississippi State (34-1) also got 17 points from Morgan William, who hit several crucial baskets throughout the game. McCowan scored 17 of her 21 points in the second half and shot 8 of 12 from the “ eld. Oklahoma State (21-11) was hurt when starting guard Loryn Goodwin picked up her fourth foul with 4:39 remaining in the third quarter. She stayed in the game, but her defensive presence was limited and that was around the time that Mississippi State went on a 10-2 lead to open up a 51-43 advantage. William made a jumper a few seconds before the third-quarter buzzer to give the Bulldogs their biggest lead in the game at 55-45 and they slowly pulled away. STANFORD 90, FLORIDA GULF COAST 70: Alanna Smith scored 28 points with four 3-pointers, Brittany McPhee added 17 points and nine rebounds and No. 4 seed Stanford is headed back to the Lexington Regional for a third straight March after beating scrappy 12th-seeded Florida Gulf Coast. Freshman Kiana Williams shined on the big stage for the second time in three days with 12 points and six assists for the Cardinal (2410), on to the Sweet 16 for the 11th straight season. Florida Gulf Coast (31-5) set the single-season 3-point record with 431, breaking Sacramento States mark of 424 from 201415, but didnt have the depth or talent to keep up against a taller Stanford team that made it hard for the Eagles to do their signature move: drive and dish. Stanford will take on No. 1 Louisville „ the “ rst matchup between the power programs „ on Friday in the regional semi“ nals. Playing previously in Lexington, the Cardinal lost to Washington in the 2016 Elite Eight then advanced to the Final Four from that regional last season.WOMENS NCAA ROUNDUP

** The News Herald | Tuesday, March 20, 2018 C5 SPORTS TICKER AUSTIN, TEXASSpieth, Reed drawn same group at Match PlayJordan Spieth and Pat-rick Reed go from being teammates to opponents in match play.Spieth and Reed have a 7-2-2 record as partners in two Ryder Cups and last years Presidents Cup. They were drawn in the same four-man group for the Dell Tech-nologies Match Play, which starts Wednesday at Austin Country Club. Spieth knows the course well from his days playing for the Texas Longhorns.The format at this World Golf Champion-ship is round-robin play through Friday, with the winners of each 16 groups advancing to a weekend of single elimination.Dustin Johnson is the No. 1 seed. Also in his group is Kevin Kisner, one of his best friends from junior golf in South Carolina. The Associated PressThe Associated PressCLEVELAND „ Cav-aliers coach Tyronn Lue is taking a leave of absence from the team to address health issues that have included chest pains and loss of sleep.Lue said Monday in statement that tests have offered no conclusion about what the issue is and offered no timetable for his return. The coach said he feels he needs to step away and focus on trying to establish a stronger and healthier foundationŽ from which to coach the rest of the season.While I have tried to work through it, the last thing I want is for it to affect the team. I am going to use this time to focus on a prescribed routine and medication, which has previously been difficult to start in the midst of a season,Ž Lue said. My goal is to come out of it a stronger and healthier version of myself so I can continue to lead this team to the championship we are all working towards.ŽAssociate head coach Larry Drew will run the team in Lues absence starting with Mondays home game against Milwaukee. Drew said he received a text mes-sage from Lue at 1:30 a.m. saying, Its your show.ŽLeBron James said he was informed of Lues decision at morning shootaround, saying it was probably well overdue.ŽI knew he was strug-gling, but he was never not himself. He was just dealing with it the best way he could,Ž James said. Once he leaves the gym and goes home, theres things we dont know, but he was the same every single day even though he was going through what he was going through.Ž A stress-filled season for the Cavs has taken a toll on the 40-year-old Lue, who led them to the 2016 NBA champi-onship after taking over for David Blatt midway through that season. They are 40-29, third in the Eastern Conference, and have endured roster shake-ups, injuries and other distractions as they try to return to the NBA Finals.Now they will play without their coach.We all want great players, we all want the best teams, but with that comes a lot of pressure as well. And what Ty Lue has had to go through this year with that team, with the trades and the injuries and the pressure, its unrelenting,Ž Denver coach Michael Malone said. So I hope that he gets healthy and is able to get back in time for the playoffs and help that team win as many games as possible.ŽLue spent the second half of Clevelands victory in Chicago on Saturday in the locker room because of an illness.Lue taking leave from Cavs due to health issuesVillanova head coach Jay Wright, left, talks with Eric Paschall during the second half of Saturdays second-round tournament game against Alabama in Pittsburgh. Villanova won 81-58. [KEITH SRAKOCIC/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] NCAA Sweet 16 has unexpected eld a er favorites oustedBy Aaron BeardThe Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. „ After little went according to plan in the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament, the bracket has a wildly different look for the Sweet 16 than many expected.Out: Two 1-seeds (Vir-ginia and Xavier) and a pair of 2-seeds (North Carolina and Cincinnati).In: Two No. 11 seeds (Syracuse and Loyola-Chicago).There are only seven of the top 16 seeds still alive for the regional roundsThe Cavaliers historic loss to 16-seed UMBC took out the top overall seed and thrust Villanova into the role of favorite, while preseason No. 1 Duke was dominant in its two tour-nament wins.Despite all the bracket turmoil, the power conferences managed to get 12 teams into the Sweet 16, with four coming from both the Atlantic Coast Confer-ence and the Big 12.Heres a look at the updated Final Four paths for the top remaining seeds:EastThis is the region that came closest to following the script.Four of the top five seeds survived: No. 1 Villanova, No. 2 Purdue, No. 3 Texas Tech and No. 5 West Virginia. And the Wildcats (32-4) will have the shortest travel (about 315 miles) by heading to Boston as they pursue a second national title in three seasons.My good vibes are coming from how this teams playing, how unselfishly they play,Ž Vil-lanova coach Jay Wright said after Saturdays win against Alabama .Honestly, we dont care where we play. Boston is a great town, old Big East town like Pittsburgh. We stir up old Big East feelings. We like that.ŽVillanova meets the Mountaineers (26-10) in one semifinal Friday, while the Boilermakers (30-6) face the Red Raiders (26-9) in the other.One storyline to watch: the status of 7-foot-2 Purdue center Isaac Haas, who broke his elbow in the first-round win against Cal State Fullerton. Haas warmed up before Sundays win against Butler but an official said shortly before tipoff that the big mans brace hadnt been approved for competition. MidwestConsider this one an ACC Invitational.Three of the four teams to advance to Omaha, Nebraska, are from the ACC: No. 2 Duke, No. 5 Clemson and No. 11 Syracuse. Theyll join top-seeded Kansas with regional semifinals set for Friday. The Jayhawks (29-7) are trying to return to the Final Four for the first time since 2012 after two straight regional-final losses. Theyll face the Tigers (25-9), who are in their first NCAA Tournament since 2011 and their first Sweet 16 since 1997.The Blue Devils (28-7) meet the Orange (23-13), who took out third-seeded Michigan State on Sunday.Duke and Syracuse met in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Feb. 24, with the Blue Devils holding the Orange to 32 percent shooting in a 60-44 win The rematch will mark the second NCAA Tournament matchup between Hall of Famers Mike Krzyzewski and Jim Boeheim, with Coach Ks Blue Devils win-ning one in the Sweet 16 in 1998. WestThings were set to go to form Sunday, only to see top-seeded Xavier and No. 2 North Carolina lose. Now Big Ten champion Michigan headlines the quartet in Los Angeles.The third-seeded Wol-verines (30-7) „ who beat Houston on a last-second 3-pointer „ will meet seventh-seeded Texas A&M (22-12) after the Aggies blew out the reign-ing champion Tar Heels in their home state. Fourth-seeded Gonzaga (32-4) will face ninth-seeded Florida State (22-11) after the Seminoles upset of the Musketeers .I think what you see happening in college basketball, its almost like a revolution,Ž FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. And what happens is you start categorizing people by the reputation that their players get going into college.But in reality, kids are playing basketball all over the country and teams are getting better.Ž SouthThis is where there was the most March Madness.None of the top-four seeds advanced, the first time in tournament history that has happened in a region. So the games in Atlanta will now be headlined by 5-seed Kentucky (26-10).The Wildcats (26-10) followed their run to the Southeastern Conference Tournament title by surviving an upset bid from Davidson then beating Buffalo „ which had upset fourth-seeded Arizona Theyll face another set of Wildcats on Thursday in ninth-seeded Kansas State (24-11), which ended UMBCs historic weekend in Charlotte.The other game features 7-seed Nevada (29-7), which tied the tour-naments second-biggest comeback by rallying from 22 down to beat No. 2 seed Cincinnati. The Wolf Pack faces No. 11 seed LoyolaChicago (30-5), which advanced against No. 6 seed Miami and No. 3 seed Tennessee on final-sec-onds shots.We told the guys before, look at today alone: Michi-gan State, North Carolina, basically at home losing today,Ž Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said.Its what makes March Madness special and it kills the coaches because its so hard and you think you have a great team. Match-ups are important. Making the plays, having the right mojo at the right time.ŽMarch MadnessSyracuse guard Tyus Battle (25) heads to the other end after a 3-point basket during the closing minutes of Sundays second-round tournament game against Michigan State in Detroit.

Facility Location: The applicant operates the existing Panama City Facility, which is located in Bay County at 2 South Everitt Avenue in Panama City, Florida. Project: The applicant applied on January 10, 2018 to the Department for a renewed Title V air operation permit. The renewal permit renews Title V Air Operation Permit No. 0050001022-AV, and incorporates the terms and conditions of air construction permit No. 0050001-029-AC, which is being processed concurrently with the renewal permit.
