Rick Scott recently signed House Bill 7087, which will allow local governments to expand the use of tourist development tax revenue to include lagoon and estuary renourishment and tourism-related public facilities. The bill defines public facilities as major capital improvements that are expected to stay up for five or more years, includ-ing transportation, sanitary sewer, drainage, pedestrian facilities and more.But Dan Rowe, executive director of the Tourist Development Council, said despite the expanded use, the bill wont much affect opera-tions in Panama City Beach. He said local officials already have funded beach nourishment projects, public safety efforts and other purposes outlined in the law.The TDC has been able to legally expend dollars for beach renourishment, beach maintenance, landscaping and public safetyŽ already, he said. With those expendi-tures, we reach the threshold that can be spent for public infrastructure projects that maintains the requirement 40 percent that has to be spent on marketing.ŽI dont think we will be negatively affected,Ž he said. Its important for the tourist development tax (dol-lars) to go toward why it was enacted, which is to support the Bay County economy.ŽThe Bay County Chamber of Commerce, however, sees HB 7087 as an issue.We adamantly opposed any other uses outside of the approved usage by voters, when bed taxes were passed,Ž said Carol Roberts, Chamber president. She said Bay County has found other means to support its infrastructure, such as the half-cent sales tax approved by voters in November 2016.In 2016, our community stepped up to pass an infrastructure surtax, where people are paying for that,Ž TDC: Tourism law wont hurt BayRowe: Bay TDC already helped fund infrastructure projects Jess Kiefer, operation manager at ZooWorld, tackled a man trespassing at the zoo Tuesday morning and detained him using a hold she uses to wrestle alligators. The man reportedly had broken in and stolen alcohol from an apartment on the grounds. [JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] By Eryn Dion747-5069 | @PCNHErynDion edion@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY BEACH „ When ZooWorld Operation Manager Jess Kiefer spotted an unknown man wandering around the grounds before the zoo opened Tuesday, her first thought was about the safety of the animals.She didnt know how long he had been on the property, she recalled, what he had brought with him or if he had possibly gotten to an animal. One thing she did know, however, was that he wasnt going to get away.I always wondered, if I found someone who had broken in, what I would do with my fight or flight „ whether I would fight or fly away,Ž said Kiefer, who lives on the ZooWorld property. I always thought I would fly, but I saw him and I just went after him and grabbed him.ŽA highly trained alligator handler, according to ZooWorld Director Kayte Hogan, Kiefer took the man„ later identified as 19-year-old Jonah Abraham „ down to the ground and put him in an alligator hold,Ž putting all her weight on his neck and back to keep his head down and squeezing him with her legs to keep him from squirm-ing away.That was the first, and only, move I could think of,Ž Kiefer said.While she had Abraham on the ground, Kiefer took out her phone and called 911, turning on the speaker and setting it on the ground so she could talk to dispatchers. She said she had to tell Abraham to be quiet a few times because he was yelling so loudly the dispatchers couldnt hear her. When he heard deputies were on their way, Abraham tried to bolt away from her, ZooWorld employee puts trespasser in alligator holdWisconsin man charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling Abraham By Katie Landeck522-5114 | @PCNHKatieL klandeck@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ The Cabana Motel is one step closer to becoming a func-tional building again, with plans moving forward to turn it into a retail space with a rooftop bar.Last week, Panama City issued a development order for phase one of renovations, which will allow the property owner to make renovations to the inte-rior of the building on both floors. The plans call for small retail spaces as well as storage space on the first and second floors.The changes will make all the difference in the worldŽ for the St. Andrews community, said real estate agent Dwight Hicks, who is managing the project.You go down to South Florida and youll see a bunch of these 50s hotels, and they look great,Ž Hicks said. Thats what we are basing our thought on.ŽThe contractors for the project should start pouring concrete within the next six weeks, Hicks said. The pool already has been removed.Run-down and with numerous code enforce-ment violations during the years, the Cabana Motel has earned the reputation of the eyesoreŽ of St. Andrews.But Hicks „ acting on behalf of 1212 Beck Avenue LLC, of which Georgiabased developer George Kingston is a managing agent „ said the remodel will turn the waterfront property into something spectacular.ŽHicks said the people he is working for want to see Panama City blossom,Ž and this is the first step.If the project is successful, Hicks said in seven or eight years, the property could be redeveloped a second time into something bigger. Kingston purchased the property in December 2016 for $575,000. Because the building is in a flood zone, special atten-tion will be paid to the materials and construction techniques that can be used on the first floor, according to Panama City Director of Planning Mike Lane.Development order issued for CabanaThis rendering shows the planned remodel of the former Cabana Motel on Beck Avenue. The property would offer retail space on both ” oors, plus a rooftop bar. [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] Construction expected to start within 6 weeksSee LAW, A6 See ZOOWORLD, A6


** A2 Thursday, March 22, 2018 | The News Herald Authorities have arrested a Bay County couple after a babysitter reported that two children appeared to have been badly beaten, according to official reports. Amy Lynn Witte: This hurts my heart and sickens my stomach so much. I am not able to have children and people like this make me want to grab them up and never let them go from a hug. Poor babies.Ž Wanda Solomon: Thanks to the Angel who stepped up and said not on my watch.Ž To many folks turn a blind eye. May God bless her and then let him deal with the parents, ,,grrrrr.Ž Mary Sylvestro Clemons: What is wrong with these women who let boyfriends beat on their kids, hey there is no guy or anything he has worth that.Ž Gun owners have filed a second lawsuit against the state over gun-related provisions in a new school-safety law, this time alleging a ban on bump stocksŽ is an unconstitutional taking of property. Angie Howell Caughlin: There is literally no restriction on guns that some people will agree to. Its disgusting. No one outside of the military should have an automatic weapon. If you need an automatic, you are probably the one in the wrong. The Principal author of the second amendment (Madison) literally banned guns on the campus of university of VA. He would have found the selling of bumpstocks to civilians absurd. If our gun laws keep being ruled by the extreme with zero compromise on sensible restrictions, we are going to end up with that amendment repealed. Wake up.Ž Steve Reid: Bump stocks were created based on a method that didnt require any store bought item that wasnt already available, Your Belt loop,Your hand and the never ending ability of the human race to adapt to anything it wants.ŽREADER FEEDBACKToday is Thursday, March 22 the 81st day of 2018.

** The News Herald | Thursday, March 22, 2018 A3By Jim Vertuno and Will WeissertThe Associated PressPFLUGERVILLE, Texas „ As a SWAT team closed in, the suspected bomber whose deadly explosives terrorized Austin for three weeks used one of his devices to blow himself up. But police warned that he could have planted more bombs before his death, and they cautioned the city to stay on guard.Mark Anthony Conditt, an unemployed college dropout, had been tracked down using store surveillance video, cellphone signals and witness accounts of a strangelooking customer making purchases in a disguise that included a blonde wig and gloves. His motive remained a mystery.Police finally found the 23-year-old early Wednes-day at a hotel in a suburb north of Austin known as the scene for filming portions of Friday Night Lights.Ž Officers prepared to move in for an arrest. When the suspects sport utility vehicle began to drive away, they followed.Conditt ran into a ditch on the side of the road, and SWAT officers approached. Thats when he detonated a bomb inside the vehicle, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said.Authorities did not immediately say whether Conditt acted alone in the five bombings in the Texas capital and suburban San Antonio that killed two people and wounded four others.Investigators released few details about Conditt, except his age and that he was white. Neighbors say he was home schooled. He later attended Austin Com-munity College from 2010 to 2012, according to a col-lege spokeswoman, but he did not graduate.In posts dated from 2012, a blogger who identified himself as Mark Conditt of suburban Pflugerville wrote that gay marriage should be illegal. He also called for the elimination of sex offender registrations and argued in favor of the death penalty. He listed his interests as cycling, tennis and listening to music.Of gay marriage, Conditt wrote: Homosexuality is not natural. Just look at the male and female bodies. They are obviously designed to couple.ŽJay Schulze, who lives in Pflugerville, said he was jogging Tuesday night when he was stopped by police and asked about the bombings. He said police flew drones over Conditts home for about six hours between Tuesday eve-ning and early Wednesday morning.Schulze described the home as a weird house with a lot of people coming and goingŽ and a bit rundown.A neighbor who watched Conditt grow up said he always seemed smart and polite. Jeff Reeb said he has lived next to Conditts par-ents for about 17 years and described them as good neighbors. Conditt had visited his parents regu-larly, he said.Suspected Austin bomber blows himself upOf“ cials investigate near a vehicle, center, where a suspect in the deadly bombings that terrorized Austin blew himself up as authorities closed in on him Wednesday in Round Rock, Texas. [JAY JANNER/AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Andrew TaylorThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Despite second thoughts, President Donald Trump swung behind a $1.3 trillion government spending bill Wednesday that would give him a partial victory on funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., rushed to the White House amid wor-ries that Trump was talking about withdrawing his sup-port for the measure, said a person familiar with White House communications with congressional leaders. However, after a faceto-face meeting, Trump confirmed his support.The president and the leaders discussed their support for the bill, which includes more funds to rebuild the military,Ž said White House Press Secre-tary Sarah Sanders, adding that it would fund Trump priorities such as wall con-struction, add money to combat the opioid crisis and provide new infrastructure spending.Earlier, a meeting of top congressional leaders pro-duced tentative accords on two tax provisions and a decision to strengthen the criminal background check system for gun pur-chases. Ryan said an official agreement on the sweeping measure would likely come very soon.ŽGOP aides said that Trump would win $1.6 bil-lion for his promised wall and physical barriers along the border, which would include both new construction and the repair of existing segments. But he would be denied a more recent, far larger $25 bil-lion request for multi-year funding for the wall project. Democrats said just $641 million would go to new segments of fencing and walls that double as levees.Negotiators planned to unveil the massive government-wide spending bill later in the day in hopes of passing it before a Friday midnight deadline to avoid a government shutdown.To the dismay of many Democr ats, the measure wont renew protections for young DreamerŽ immigrants facing possible deportation. It also wont provide subsidies to insurers who cut costs for low-earning customers. And it wont have federal payments to insurance carriers to help them afford to cover their costliest clients.The top four leaders of both House and Senate met Wednesday and emerged saying they basically had a deal. Were in a good place,Ž Ryan said.The bill would give Trump a huge budget increase for the military, while Democrats would cement wins on infrastructure and other domestic programs that they failed to get under President Barack Obama. The bill would fund a 2.4 percent pay raise for mili-tary personnel touted by Republicans.Battles over budget pri-orities in the huge bill were all settled, while a handful of non-budget issues remained, including a GOP effort to fix a poorly drafted section of the recent tax cut law that is harming Mid-western grain companies.At Wednesdays meeting, GOP aides said, top leaders including Ryan agreed to fix this so-called grain glitch „ while adding a tax-credit provision sought by Democrats to boost low-income hous-ing units.They also said the agree-ment would add Fix NICSŽ legislation designed to beef up compliance with gun background check reporting requirements.Another fight would remove an earmark protecting money for a rail tunnel under the Hudson River thats a top priority of Trumps most powerful Democratic rival, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York. The project would remain eligible for funding, however, and a Schumer aide said it was likely to win well more than half of the $900 million sought for this year under rules govern-ing various Department of Transportation accounts.The measure on the table would provide major funding increases for the Pentagon „ $80 billion over current limits „ bringing the military budget to $700 billion and giving GOP defense hawks a long-sought victory.We made a promise to the country that we would rebuild our military. Aging equipment, personnel shortages, training lapses, maintenance lapses „ all of this has cost us,Ž said Ryan. With this weeks critical funding bill we will begin to reverse that damage.ŽDomestic accounts would get a generous 10 percent increase on average as well, awarding Democrats the sort of spending increases they sought but never secured during the Obama administration.Both parties touted $4.6 billion in total funding to fight the nations opioid addiction epidemic, a $3 billion increase. More than $2 billion would go to strengthen school safety through grants for training, security measures and treatment for the mentally ill. Medical research at the National Institutes of Health, a longstanding bipartisan priority, would receive a record $3 billion increase to $37 billion.Trump swings behind massive spending billSpeaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., meets with reporters Tuesday following a closed-door Republican strategy session on Capitol Hill in Washington.

** A6 Thursday, March 22, 2018 | The News Heraldshe said, adding if other counties are having issues funding infrastructure, they might need to step upŽ like Bay County did.HB 7087 derived from similar bills like Senate Bill 658, sponsored by Jeff Brandes, and House Bill 585, sponsored by Rep. Randy Fine. SB 658 died in Appropriations, and HB 585 died in Com-munity Affairs.Under the new law, officials can use bed tax revenue for public facilities if the county has gathered at least $10 million in bed taxes from the prior year, which Bay County far exceeds, and if county officials approve the use for planned facili-ties by at least two-thirds of its members. No more than 70 percent of the proposed public facility could be funded by the tourist development tax, and a study would have to be performed „ at the expense of the tourist development council „ that details the positive impact the facility will have on the countys tourism.At least 40 percent of all bed tax revenue still must be used to promote and advertise tourism, according to the new law. The requirements are in place to preserve the current commitment to marketing and advertising, said Jay Ferrin, legislative aide to Sen. Jeff Brandes.This bill allows local governments to have the option to use those funds more freely, as long as they have put a significant amount toward marketing and the purpose is related to tourism,Ž Ferrin said.He said many officials see the law as a way to help municipalities fund local projects.In many areas, we have counties with tens of millions of dollars in bed tax that are unable to use it for local projects that the community desperately needs, like sewage systems and lagoon improvements. In my district, the city of St. Pete Beach cannot add an extra hotel room because the sewage system is at capacity,Ž he said. LAWFrom Page A1so Kiefer switched up her grip, putting him in an MMA-styleŽ choke-hold, according to police reports, and keeping him on the ground until depu-ties arrived.I was a big wrestling fan when I was younger,Ž Kiefer remarked.Hogan arrived at the zoo about five minutes after the deputies, who were waiting outside to tell her Kiefer had subdued the suspect all by herself.The deputies were like, I didnt even have to help, Ž she said. Even the deputies were impressed.ŽAccording to Bay County Sheriffs Office reports, Abraham, who is from Eau Claire, Wiscon-sin, scaled the ZooWorld fence about 7 a.m. and broke into an apartment on the property where an employee usually stays, stealing two bottles of alcohol. In speaking with deputies, Abraham reportedly said he had been looking for a vapeŽ his friend had dropped during their visit. Depu-ties noted a very strong odorŽ of alcohol coming from Abraham and that he seemed intoxicated.Hogan said the incident is the first of its kind at ZooWorld. All of their dangerous animals are put into their bedroomsŽ at night, she said, and are kept behind at least three layers of security so no one can get to or let them out. The property also is fully encasedŽ in a 10-foot security fence, but theres only so much you can do to fight stu-pidity,Ž Hogan said.Kiefer said what happened didnt really hit her until after everything settled down, and Hogan said the zoo is trying to come to terms with the incident, which she said was a little amusing but also terrifying.Abraham has been charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and held on a $10,000 bond. ZOOWORLDFrom Page A1 Dan Rowe, executive director of the Bay County Tourist Development Council, said a new law on tourist tax usage wont much affect the county, as the TDC already has funded beach nourishment projects, public safety efforts and other purposes outlined in the law. [NEWS HERALD FILE PHOTO] By Heather YakinGatehouse Media New YorkGOSHEN, N.Y. „ Minutes after an Orange County jury convicted Gregory Cardona of crim-inally negligent homicide and reckless driving in the crash death of girlfriend Ashley Martinez, months of tensions and resentment between the two families exploded into shouts and name-calling.The fracas started Wednesday morning just after deputies led Cardona out of court to the inmate holding area, when Assistant District Attorney Matthew Healy stepped toward the rail to speak to Martinezs family, which filled one side of the gallery.From the crowd across the courtroom, Cardonas stepfather muttered an insult at Healy, which set off a woman in Martinezs family.We lost Ashley!Ž she shouted, adding an insult. Shes dead! Shes dead!Ž the woman wailed.Several court officers stationed in the courtroom for the verdict quickly stepped between the families, keeping them separated despite attempts by a few people to get at the other side.An Orange County Court jury found Cardona, 28, guilty of criminally negligent homicide, a felony, and reckless driving, a misdemeanor, in the Aug. 30, 2016, crash that killed 25-year-old Martinez. The jury acquitted Cardona on the top count, second-degree vehicular manslaughter, and a mis-demeanor count of driving while ability impaired by drugs, a decision that seemed to stun both fami-lies. The verdict suggests that jurors did not find proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Cardona was impaired by marijuana. Healy and Senior Assis-tant District Attorney Lorri Goldberg argued at trial that Cardona was high and driving recklessly at the time of the crash.Families argue in NY court after man found guiltyGregory Cardona reacts as an Orange County Court jury acquits him of second-degree vehicular manslaughter, then “ nds him guilty of criminally negligent homicide and reckless driving. The jury also acquitted him of driving while ability impaired by drugs. [HEATHER YAKIN/GATEHOUSE MEDIA NEW YORK]

News Herald staff report Fed raises key rate and foresees two more hikes this yearBy Martin CrutsingerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Federal Reserve raised its key interest rate Wednesday in a vote of confidence in the U.S. economys durability while signaling that it plans to continue a gradual approach to rate hikes for 2018 under its new chairman, Jerome Powell.The Fed said it expects to raise rates twice more this year. And it increased its estimate for rate hikes in 2019 from two to three, reflecting more optimistic expectations for growth and low unemployment.In a statement after its latest policy meeting, the Fed said it boosted its key short-term rate by a modest quarter-point to a still-low range of 1.5 percent to 1.75 percent. It also said it will keep shrinking its bond portfolio. The two moves mean that many consum-ers and businesses will face higher loan rates over time.Taken together, the Feds actions and forecasts sug-gest a belief that the economy remains sturdy even nearly nine years after the Great Recession ended.The Feds latest rate hike marks its sixth since it began tightening credit in Decem-ber 2015, after having kept its benchmark rate at a record low near zero for seven years to help nurture the economys recovery from the recession. Wednesdays action was approved 8-0, with the Fed avoiding any dissents at the first meeting Powell has pre-sided over as chairman since succeeding Janet Yellen last month.Bond yields rose and stocks held on to most of their gains after the Feds announcement, which was widely expected. But by the time stock trading had ended, the Dow Jones industrial average was down modestly, and the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, a benchmark for mort-gages and other loans, was up only slightly.Economists said its decision to raise rates despite some recent sluggish data in areas like consumer spending showed that the Powell-led Fed has faith in the economys resilience.The Fed has more confidence in the economys underlying momentum and appears to be more determined to normalize interest rates,Ž said Mark Vitner, senior economist at Wells Fargo.Vitner predicted that the central bank will end up raising rates four times this year despite its forecast for three.Some investors had specu-lated that Powell might move to impose his mark on the Fed by signaling a faster pace of rate hikes for 2018. But the Feds new economic fore-casts, which include a median projection for the path of future increases, made no change to its December pro-jection for three hikes this year.If the Fed does stick with its forecast for three rate increases this year and three in 2019, its key policy rate would stand at 3.4 percent after five years of credit tightening. Wednesdays forecast put the Fed longterm rate „ the point at which its policies are neither boosting the economy nor holding it back „ at 2.9 percent. At a news conference after the meeting, Powell said the Fed hasnt lowered its forecasts for growth because of the Trump administrations decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. But he said the Feds regional bank presidents have heard concerns from businesses about the consequences of the tariffs.Trade policy has become a concern going forward for that group,Ž the chairman said, referring to business leaders.But among the Fed officials who met in Washington this week, Powell said, theres no thought that changes in trade policy should have any effect on the current outlook.ŽPowells first news confer-ence ended 15 minutes earlier than the roughly hour-long sessions Yellen typically held, primarily because he kept his answers shorter. Powell said he might choose to hold a news conference after each of the Feds eight meetings each year, up from four now, but that he hadnt yet decided.Wednesdays statement showed only minor changes from the text the Fed had issued in January after Yellens final meeting. The statement described economic activity as rising at a moderate rate,Ž a slight downgrade from January, when the Fed described the economy as rising at a solid rate.ŽThe statement did not mention the extra govern-ment stimulus that has been added since the Feds most recent economic forecast in the form of a $1.5 trillion tax cut and a budget agreement that will add $300 billion in government spending over two years.By Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ After a jittery afternoon of trading, major U.S. stock indexes fell Wednesday while smaller companies fared better. The Federal Reserve raised interest rates, as investors expected, and said it could raise rates at a quicker pace next year.Stocks traded higher early in the day and jumped after the Fed announced its decision. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 250 points, but gave it all up as new Fed Chairman Jerome Powell addressed reporters. At the end of trading it wobbled and ended lower. The dollar weakened and bond yields turned lower. Yields had risen earlier in the afternoon.The Fed said the U.S. economy and the job market continued to improve over the last two months. It still expects to raise interest rates three times this year, and said it might raise rates three more times next year instead of two.Brent Schutte, the chief investment strategist for Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management, said Powell is trying to tell Wall Street what the Feds plans are without worry-ing investors too much. He said stocks dropped after Powell said rates might rise higher than the Fed expects.The market will have to get to know Jerome Powell a little bit and will have to test his credibility as Fed chairman,Ž he said. I would imagine the bar is higher for him in the shorter term because he is not a trained economist,Ž unlike Janet Yellen and other predecessors.Energy companies led the way as oil prices jumped for the second day in a row. Homebuild-ers advanced following a report that sales of previously occupied homes increased in February. Cereal and packaged foods companies slumped after General Mills reported rising expenses and cut its annual profit forecast and airlines skidded after Southwest said its revenue is suffering as it cuts fares to compete with other companies.The S&P 500 index slid 5.01 points, or 0.2 per-cent, to 2,711.93. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 44.96 points, or 0.2 percent, to 24,682.31. The Nasdaq composite fell 19.02 points, or 0.3 percent, to 7,345.29. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies gained 8.90 points, or 0.6 per-cent, to 1,579.30.Bond prices edged lower. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note declined to 2.88 percent from 2.90 percent Tuesday. It had risen as high as 2.93 per-cent as investors expected quicker gains in interest rates.David Kelly, the chief global strategist for JPM-organ Asset Management, said stocks usually do well when rates are rising, but only up to a point.Stocks wobble after interest rate hike Vote of con denceFederal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell speaks following a meeting Wednesday in Washington.

[CAROLYN KASTER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Tom MurphyThe Associated PressMedical bills can push patients over the financial cliff, but a new study says this may not happen as often as previous research suggests.Hospitalizations cause only about 4 percent of per-sonal bankruptcies among non-elderly U.S. adults, according to an analysis published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine.This contrasts with pre-vious research by former Harvard professor and current U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and others that pointed to medical reasons as the trigger for more than 60 percent of U.S. bankruptcies.In the new study, researchers tracked the credit reports of more than a half million adults under 65 in California who had a hospitalization between 2003 and 2007 that wasnt tied to childbirth. They found that hospitalizations clearly forced some patients into bankruptcy in the years following their stay, said study co-author Matthew Notowidigdo, a Northwestern University economist.It just may not happen as frequently as the other research indicates.What causes bankruptcies is still somewhat unknown, but it appears that medical expenses are responsible for a much smaller share of them than previously thought,Ž said co-author Raymond Klu-ender of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.Researchers also esti-mated that hospitalizations were responsible for only about 6 percent of bankruptcies among uninsured patients. They noted that hospitalization rates are lower in that patient group compared to the overall non-elderly population.The new analysis included a broader range of people than earlier research, which focused on those who already had filed for bankruptcy protection.Such a narrow focus makes it impossible to infer the role of medical expenses in causing bankruptcyŽ without information on those who had big medical bills and didnt sink financially, the authors of Wednesdays report noted.Their study also had limitations: It focused only on adult patients from one state who were hospitalized.Kluender said hospital stays often are the first event that triggers a chain of struggles with medical expenses and medical debt.ŽThe research looked at hospitalizations that occurred several years before the federal Affordable Care Act expanded insurance coverage to millions of Americans.Study: Medical bankruptcies may not be as common as thought

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: NRA is not untouchable The NRA has so many people going up against them they must be stunned. For years they thought they ruled America. Now they are finding out, thank God, that they dont. Trump the whirling dervish who has been on all sides of every issue and has no clue what he really stands foris one of their biggest fans. We know he speaks out both sides of his mouth. One day accusing those in the meeting of being scared of or beholden to the NRA, then and after a fireside chat in the White House with his $30 million benefactors, namely the NRA, he falls back in line with his lord and masters! The NRA has finally met its match. The brave young people from Parkland have far more guts and not afraid to stand up to them have created a movement that is only getting stronger. God bless those smart young people for doing what the weakkneed politicians who much prefer that perfect A+ rating and the continuation of donations from the NRA are too afraid to do. Millions stand with the Parkland Strong and the other voices that have joined in their cause for putting lives before guns.Carol Philp, Panama CityLETTER TO THE EDITORI have seen drivers of golf carts on Front Beach Road that were younger than 16. Commonwealth Fund has rated the U.S. health care system as the worst among the 11 developed nations, worst performing, and spends the most money and rates poor in the equality of coverage. Nothing to be proud about. Self-driving cars are ridiculous! Already one death due to one. How stupid are these people who thought that was a good idea in the first place? Has the world gone mad? Our friends and allies may be few and far between in the era of Trump. They know him to be inept, impulsive and unstable. It is those in Congress and elsewhere who refuse to see that, which makes them complicit enablers! Re: Ronald Wolff Letter to Editor: America DOES NOT have one of the best health care systems in the world. Thank you, Ron Wolff. If you stood up for Christianity in most of the Middle East, you would not be alive. Cruise ship port here would be great! Tourists would love PCB and spend money here. A lot of locals cruise! Save us the long drive to other ports! My God! Where will it all end? Armed teachers! Now some suggesting armed federal agents at voting booths. We as a country appear to have lost our mind! I want harsher penalties for deaths by drunk drivers. Dear Mr. President, Its what you learn after you know it all that really counts. Hillary is blaming all you white women for her loss. Mueller is a Republican and Im Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Bravo for the gun-carrying school official who stopped the shooter. FakebookŽ now hated by liberals. PCB is richer in so many ways after ending Spring Break debauchery.SQUALL LINE ANOTHER VIEWLast week, Ohio experienced a local version of the misinformed nonsense that is poisoning so much of the civic conversation in America these days when the internet lit up with the newsŽ that a student had been suspended for not joining in an antigun walkout protest „ another case of liberal public schools indoctrinating their students and punishing conservative dissenters, the instant storyline went. It wasnt true, but that didnt keep the boys father from getting death threats from one side and attaboys and offers of attorney help from the other. And, while the school district and the boys family have debunked the rumor, the misplaced outrage about it no doubt still iscirculating online and will do so indefinitely. The irony is that, as the family tells it, Jacob Shoemaker didnt want any part in the raging controversy over gun control, which is white-hot in many high schools following the Feb. 14 killings of 14 students and three coaches at a high school in Parkland. When he heard about plans for the walkout, he didnt want to join, nor did he want to go to a study hall where school officials wanted all nonprotesters to go. Either choice, he felt, would be making a political statement he didnt want to make. He wanted to stay in his classroom, which is what he did, and he was suspended for not following administrators instructions, which were to either join the protest or go to a study hall. Jacobs punishment became public after he shared a photo of his suspension notice with a friend, who did the 21st-century-teen thing to do and shared it online, heedless of the fact that it showed Jacobs dads name and phone number. The texts and calls to Scott Shoemakers phone began early, along with angry messages to the Ohio school district. There are a number of lessons to be learned here. One is the districts response to the protest „ upending classes and insisting that nonprotesting students gather in study halls „ was a bit heavy-handed. Administrators not otherwise occupied could have watched over the walkouts while teachers remained with any kids who stayed in the classrooms. Another is one that every social-media user should know, but so many dont: Carelessly exposing anyones contact information can have very serious consequences. Scott Shoemaker said he may have to change his phone number. The most important lessons are that outrageous things read on social media have to be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism, and sharing things you dont know to be true could very well be fueling the rancor that seems to be such a permanent part of public life these days. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.Dont share without thinkingThe poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in the English countryside has roused Britons to two truths: Vladimir Putin regards their country as an easy mark, but its also an extremely pleasant place for his oligarchs to live. Americans, take note. Finally, finally, theres talk of hitting back at Putin where his filthy-rich cronies hurt „ their mansions, Bentleys and other baubles of the posh life in Britain. A study released by Deutsche Bank in 2015 says Russians were a major source of the $129 billion that had made its way into Britain through secret offshore dealings the previous nine years. So many Kremlin insiders have made opulent nests in the environs of No. 10 Downing St. that an anti-Putin activist runs what he calls a klepto tourŽ of London. As one example, Putin sidekick Roman Abramovich owns a $163 million house right across from Kensington Palace. The Russian loot, much of it stolen under Putins wink, flows into Britain greased by laws only pretending to monitor its source. The story repeated itself in Manhattan, where money of murky provenance has spiked the prices of palatal properties. There is nothing illegal about foreigners buying U.S. property. People from all over do so, seeing choice real estate in New York, Miami and other elite cities as safe places to stash their money. But the phenomenon has fostered an elaborate web of intermediaries tasked with cleaning up ill-gotten gains and moving them into respectable real estate. That often involves using shell companies to hide the buyers identities. The Treasury Department has begun tightening the rules governing such ownership. Its Financial Crimes Enforcement Network now requires U.S. title insurance companies to name the people behind all-cash offers for high-end homes in several geographical zones: New York City, Miami to Palm Beach, the Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego areas, and the county that includes San Antonio, Bexar County. Three months before Donald Trump announced his run for the presidency, the Treasurys financial crimes unit slapped a $10 million penalty against the Trump Taj Mahal casino resort in Atlantic City for willful and repeated violations of the Bank Secrecy ActŽ „ that is, money laundering. Trump-branded condos in Sunny Isles Beach, outside Miami, have so many Russian owners that locals call them Little Russia.Ž A proposal to seize Russian-owned apartments would obviously not sit well with the president. That could explain his feeble responses to Russian attacks against the West. Trump hesitated before joining the European Union in supporting Britains response to the poison outrage. That led Russian state television to announce, Trump is ours.Ž His recent call for sanctions against Russians suspected of meddling in U.S. elections and other cyberattacks largely named the same entities Mueller already hasindicted. This tepid reaction followed shocking revelations that Russian hackers have invaded our water and electric systems, nuclear power plants included. Trump is obviously steering clear of sharp-toothed sanctions, such as freezing the U.S. assets of Putins oligarchs. Others should pursue the idea. Follow the money, they say. And in the case of Putin allies living large on American soil, take it. Froma Harrop is a member of the Providence Journal editorial board and a columnist with Creators Syndicate.

** The News Herald | Thursday, March 22, 2018 A9By Haruna Umar and Krista LarsonThe Associated PressDAPCHI, Nigeria „ Boko Haram Islamic extremists brought back nearly all of the 110 girls they had kidnapped from a boarding school last month, drop-ping them off in the middle of the night Wednesday with a warning: Dont ever put your daughters in school again.ŽSeveral of the girls inter-viewed by The Associated Press said they had been traveling for days before the convoy of vehicles arrived in the center of the town of Dapchi around 2 a.m. Residents who had fled upon hearing that Boko Haram was headed their way watched from hiding as dozens of girls descended from the vehi-cles apparently unharmed.We were freed because we are Muslim girls and they didnt want us to suffer. That is why they released us,Ž said Khadija Grema, one of the freed girls who said a Christian classmate remained captive.The extraordinary devel-opment brought elation to most of the families, but more heartache for the relatives of the six girls still unaccounted for. The sister of one girl fainted Wednes-day upon hearing that she was not among those freed.One 14-year-old released by the fighters told reporters that five girls had died. She did not provide other details and it was not immediately possible to independently verify her claim.The abductions in Dapchi have evoked pain-ful memories of the tragedy in Chibok, where 276 girls were kidnapped from their boarding school. Nearly four years later, about 100 of them have never returned home. Many had been forced to marry their captors and had children fathered by them.The Nigerian govern-ment denied that it had paid a ransom or made a prisoner swap in exchange for the girls freedom. The girls were released through back-channel efforts and with the help of some friends of the country, and it was unconditional,Ž Information Minister Lai Mohammed told journal-ists in the capital, Abuja.No money changed hands. They only had one condition „ that they will return them to where they took them. So in the early hours of today, they did return the girls and most of them went to their par-ents,Ž he said.The girls were meeting with counselors at a nearby hospital, and will be quarantined and be counseled before they go back to their schools,Ž he added. Nigerias government later said they were being taken to the capital on a military plane.The fighters had rolled into Dapchi in nine vehicles and the girls were left in the center of town. As terrified residents emerged from their homes, the extremists issued an ominous warning, resident Baana Musa told the AP.We did it out of pity. And dont ever put your daughters in school again,Ž the residents said the extremists told them. Boko Haram means Western education is forbiddenŽ in the Hausa language.Nigerias government said 104 of the 110 school-girls had been confirmed freed.Boko Haram returns taken Nigerian girlsAishat Alhaji, second right, one of the kidnapped girls from the Government Girls Science and Technical College Dapchi who was freed, is photographed Wednesday after her release, in Dapchi, Nigeria.

However, residential-sized propane tanks are accepted. Ogborn said there is no limit on the tonnage a person brings to the landfill or number of trips as long as they are disposing of their household waste.Basically you can bring anything but explosives and ammo,Ž he said.Ogborn said people even have dumped house trailers at the landfill on previous Amnesty Days.Anything you have ever bought, sold or created sooner or later comes to the landfill,Ž he said.People also are encouraged to bring unused household chemi-cals to the landfill, as they have the potential to end up in the drinking water supply if they are poured down the drain. People need to transport the items to the landfill, but once there, there will be employees there to help people unload items, Ogborn said.This event is open to Bay County residents only. Proof of residency is required, such as a drivers license, power bill and voter registration card. Tipping fees will not be waived for com-mercial customers. All loads that arrive in commercial vehicles or trailers will be assumed to be commercial in origin and are subject to tipping fees.Waste Amnesty Days are Friday, SaturdayBay County wants your derelict boats, tires, trashPeople dump furniture at the Steel“ eld Land“ ll during a previous Waste Amnesty Day.

The girls spent eight weeks learning such entrepreneurial skills as budgeting, planning, cus-tomer service and more before opening up stands Wednesday in Panama City and Panama City Beach.Today is a culmination of their hard work,Ž said Niki Kelly, Girls Inc. executive director. If they plan properly, they can be successful.ŽAll morning, the girls painted signs, prepped beverages and more to get ready to sell lemonade.Kelly said she not only wanted the youth to gain entrepreneurial experi-ence through the lemonade stand, but she wanted them to have fun. Fourth-grader Lakya Eaton did just that, saying she enjoyed the experience because she gets to sell lemonade and play. There was plenty more fun to be had between sales, as the girls played with bubbles and laughed outside their Panama City location.The stand was a way for the girls to share their business knowledge with the community, said Amanda Alexander, teen coordinator.Its beneficial to them in so many ways they dont see right now,Ž she said. In the future, theyll recall this when theyre businesswomen or buying a home or a car.ŽThe lemonade also stood as a sign of community service. Kelly said all proceeds from the sales will go toward Heartland Rescue Ranch. As if that wasnt enough, she said, first responders were given free cups of lemonade.So often our girls see them in a negative situation,Ž Kelly said, with many youths interac-tions with first responders coming only during emer-gencies or tragedies. We want to give them the chance to have a positive interaction. We want to say thank you with free lemonade.ŽSupporting first responders was particularly meaningful for sixth-grader Amaya Kotarba, who wants to be a police officer. She said the lemonade operation helped her learn how to save money and spend it, which will help her in her future law enforcement career.Its fun because people come and buy lemonade,Ž Amaya said. You get money and have fun outside, even though its cold.ŽThe biggest part of the journey toward setting up the stand has been in establishing recipes, Kelly said.I think the Beach has the best lemonade,Ž she said. They have Meyer lemons. If you dont have a good product, business wont do well.Ž The battle of lemonade standsŽ didnt seem to be too competitive, though, as the girls continued to pour small and large cups of the tangy beverage that con-tained fresh strawberries.Alexander said she loves that the girls have the chance to learn, grow and build through opportunities offered like the lemonade stand.It overlaps into their schoolwork, while they measure, mix and count. I enjoy doing these pro-grams,Ž she said. LEMONADEFrom Page B1Lakya Eaton, 11, Paris Eaton, 12, and Amaya Kutarba, 12, sell lemonade at Girls Inc. in Panama City on Wednesday.

** B4 Thursday, March 22, 2018 | The News Herald News Herald staff reportFOUNTAIN „ A Bay County man is behind bars after two juveniles told authorities he sexually abused them, according to arrest reports.Philip David Mullins, 43, appeared in court Tuesday in connection with the case. The Bay County Sheriffs Office arrested Mullins after he allegedly made comments about the sexual relationships to two other people.Mr. Mullins had con-versations with two other adults in which he told them about being sexually active with two juveniles,Ž BCSO spokeswoman Ruth Corley said Wednesday. They brought the infor-mation to us.ŽAn investigation by BCSO identified the vic-tims as a boy and a girl, both between the ages of 12 and 18, in separate cases. When interviewed by deputies, the girl said Mul-lins had abused her several times without her consent, BCSO reported. She described multiple incidents of Mullins touching her beneath her clothing and digitally penetrating her. She also reported Mullins at least once tried to get her to use metham-phetamine with him.She said he also tried on numerous occa-sionsŽ to coerce her into engaging in sexual activity with him and his son, BCSO reported.The male victim told deputies his abuse by Mul-lins began in 2016 when the two lived in Arkansas. The boy disclosed three sepa-rate incidents in which the defendant performed oral sex on him against his will,Ž BCSO reportedHe also described an incident in which he and Mullins were drinking alcohol and playing beer pong.Ž The boy said he became intoxicated and woke up naked with Mul-lins sexually abusing him.When he was interviewed Monday, Mullins reportedly told deputies If I did it, I do not recall doing it.ŽMullins was arrested and charged with two counts of sexual battery on a victim between the ages of 12 and 18 and lewd and lascivious molestation against the girl.BCSO: Accused child molester told other adults of abuse Mullins PANAMA CITYPCPD: Man tortured, sexually assaulted disabled womanA paraplegic woman reportedly was burned with a meth pipe, beaten and sexually assaulted by a man she was living with, who deprived her of her wheelchair so she could not escape, according to the Panama City Police Department.Larry Pierce, 46, is facing charges of aggravated abuse of a disabled adult, false imprison-ment, two counts of sexual battery and domestic battery by strangulation after he was arrested Tuesday.According to a police report, Pierce and the woman had been living together for about a year, and had been staying at the Marie Motel on Magnolia Avenue. Between March 17 and March 20, the report states that Pierce began beating the woman with his fists, strangling and torturingŽ her by burning her legs with a meth pipe, leaving burns and bruises all over her body. The abuse culminated in sexual bat-tery on the victim by Pierce, PCPD reported. During the incidents, the report states the woman was deprived of her wheelchair, leaving her unable to resist or leave.Because parts of the police report are redacted, the relationship between Pierce and the woman is unclear.After his first appearance Wednesday, Pierce was held on a combined $125,000 bond.PANAMA CITYPCPD: Woman sought for passing counterfeit billsThe Panama City Police Department needs the pub-lics help finding a woman suspected of passing coun-terfeit $100 bills.The woman last was seen visiting Family Dollar stores at 297 W. 15 St. and 1907 W. 15th St. about 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Seen in video surveillance footage, the woman is white with brown hair and was wearing a gold dress and light-colored cross body purse with sun-glasses on her head.Anyone with information is asked to call PCPD at 850-872-3100 or report tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 850-785-TIPS.PANAMA CITYBCSO: Mom charged with DUI had child in carA local woman has been charged with child neglect after reportedly driving her car while intoxicated with her five-month-old child in the back seat. Erin Elizabeth Murray, 36, was arrested early Tues-day and charged with driving under the influence and child neglect.According to Bay County Sheriffs Office reports, a deputy stopped Murrays vehicle after she failed to stop at the intersection of East Avenue and 15th Street at 3:04 a.m. When the deputy made contact with Murray, he reported that he smelled alcohol on her breath, and also noticed a child in a car seat.Responding deputies wrote that Murray had a very difficult timeŽ completing the field sobriety exercises, and she was placed under arrest.On the way to the Bay County Jail, Murray report-edly told deputies she had a few drinks because she had been having relationship problems, and she knew she was intoxicated but took the baby for a ride anyway because it had been crying.

He told investigators he ran over and saw the boat, which was stopped by a heavy garden hose that ran the length of the dock and got hung up on the center console. The witness said he jumped on board, trimmed the motor and backed it up to help get McKenzie and the woman off the boat. He said the vessels navigational lights were not turned on.Other witnesses told investigators thatMcKenzie and the womanappeared to be injured; the woman was in and out of consciousnessŽ and appeared to be bleeding. EMS and firefighters arrivedand began treating the woman, but McKenzie was being loud, disruptive, and hindering the emergency responders who were treating the female who was injured,Ž the report said.I moved McKenzie to the other side of the drivewayŽ to allow EMS workers to help the woman, an FWC investigator wrote in his report. McKenzies statements, actions and emotions were very sporadic while he was sitting down. He kept asking about the female, he would start crying, and he would ask for someone to hold his hand.ŽThe woman was taken to Twin Cities Hospital. McKenzie then began to complain of chest pain and also was taken to the hospital. He continued to be belligerent at the hospital and cursed the staff, the report said.McKenzie would refuse to answer questions unless he was told how the female was doing, basically holding the emergency room staff hostage to do their job,Ž the FWC report said. When a nurse came, he asked her again how she was, (and) she advised him she could not tell him anything. He told her, You can get the (expletive) out of here. ŽMan sentenced for cr ashing boat through dock McKenzie

The first practice also was at a quicker pace, with five-minute instruction periods instead of the 10-minute periods that were common under Jimbo Fisher.Taggart wants to see the Seminoles play fast and not worry about making mistakes.It is going to be a fast practice. Well get in and out. Well do a lot of coaching in the film room,Ž said Taggart, who was named coach on Dec. 5, less than a week after Fisher resigned to go to Texas A&M.Many of the changes are staples of Taggarts previous stops at Western Kentucky, South Florida and Oregon. The changes have received rave reviews from the players.Fun bunch: Taggarts rst FSU practice sets di erent toneFlorida State running backs coach Dont Pimpleton directs Cam Akers during the teams “ rst “ rst spring football practice Wednesday in Tallahassee. [JOE REEDY/AP] By Dustin Kent747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent dkent@pcnh.comLUBBOCK, Tex. „ In a single elimination tournament, an uglyŽ win is just as useful as a prettyŽ win … though the former can cause a bit more stress on coaches and players than the latter.UglyŽ may not be the most appropriate descriptor of the Gulf Coast womens basketball teams 54-45 win over San Jacinto-North (Tex.) in Tuesdays second round of the NJCAA Division I Womens Basketball National Championship, but the Lady Commodores definitely had to work harder and longer to secure that victory than any of its three triumphs at the Region VIII tournament in Ocala.San Jacinto led by four points late in the third quarter and took an early 40-39 lead in the fourth before a 13-0 Gulf Coast run turned the tide of the game in the Lady Commodores favor for good. Gulf Coast coach Roonie Scovel, who is seeking her sixth national championship at the school, said its not that unusual for her team to face an early scare at the national tournament even in years when the Lady Commodores have gone on to win the title.In many years past the hardest game weve had at the national tournament was the first game,Ž she said. Youre playing your first game out there and a lot of times like (against San Jacinto) youre playing a team that has already played a game. We have a lot of new players on this team and only one who started (in the national tour-nament) last year and they were all nervous. I think the whole group that got on this bus was nervous about that game. I dont think any of us handled it well and that falls on me as the coach, so Ill take the blame for it.ŽScovel is correct that the Lady Commodores have had close shaves early in national tournaments past and one only need look back two years prior to find an example. In the 2016 tourna-ment, Gulf Coast led by just two points with 90 seconds to play against a nine-loss Georgia Highlands team in its first game before holding on for a 71-64 win. The Lady Commodores then went on to win their next three contests by margins of 21, 29, and 16 points en route to the national title.Lady Commodores shake o nervesTeam gets set for Seward By Robbie AndreuStaff writerOnly three practices into the spring, its far too early to declare a leader in the quar-terback competition. But its apparently easy to spot the one who is the most comfort-able at the moment.That would be Feleipe Franks, last years starter.I think just his comfort being on the field,Ž Florida coach Dan Mullen said Wednesday. You look at him. Kyle (Trask) has a good understanding of the game as well. But you can see with Feleipe his experience, having been out there and playing and being in the huddle and being in there with pass rush-ers and having played a little bit more college football. You can see that with him in his comfort out there on the field.ŽOverall, the quarterbacks seem to be off to a solid if not spectacular start this spring. Theyre learning a new offense and going through the installation process, so there is a learning curve for everybody.Mullen says hes got some talent to work with.I like the work ethic they have,Ž he said. They have some arm talent. Watching those guys throw the ball, they definitely have some arm talent and ability to make a lot of different throws, which is fun to coach. You can put some more things in. You can do things, you can do it around their ability to throw the ball.Accuracy, though, is the most important thing. I'd rather take a very, very accu-rate quarterback over a guy that throws it 70-80 yards and just explaining that to them and understanding that.ŽMullen and the offensive coaches will continue to install more of the offense as the spring progresses. They havent put in a whole lot yet, but what they have has been handled well by the quarter-backs, Mullen said.I've been pleased with how they've picked things up within the offense,Ž Mullen said. It's going to take a lot of reps before they get com-fortable. But I haven't seen the confused looks out of any of them yet.

** C2 Thursday, March 22, 2018 | The News Herald The News HeraldPENSACOLA „ Win-ning streaks and national rankings aside, one key change in the Panhandle Conference softball race this spring is in how many teams qualify for the upcoming state tournament.In past seasons, it has been as many as four. This year, that has been reduced to the champion and runner-up for all conferences in the state.With the new format supplying a backdrop, Gulf Coast and Pensacola squared off on Wednesday with the possibility of breaking their tie for second place behind undefeated and No. 1 Chipola.The Lady Commodores started out doing so with relish, taking a 14-6 win after five inningsin the first game. The Lady Pirates, however, staged a late rally in the second game to escape with a 4-2 victory and a dou-bleheader split.That left Gulf Coast 5-3 and 34-4 overall, and still tied with Pensacola, which is 5-3 and 20-15.The Lady Commodores wasted little time putting Tuesday behind them, having been swept by Chipola in Marianna. Gulf Coast stroked four consecutive hits in a five-run second inning to back winning pitcher Chandler Sparkman.Kaylee Raines had three straight runscoring singles, Payton Burton continued her hot hitting with two dou-bles, the first producing an RBI and Alexa Shiver doubled home two runs in the big second inning.The Lady Commodores also rediscovered their identity with four stolen bases and Spark-man was dominant after her worst performance of the season on Tuesday.Lia Johnsons double in the third inning was Pensacolas only hit off Sparkman. Otherwise she registered nine consecutive outs by strikeout, getting the side in the second, third and fourth innings. Sparkman added a triple a three-run home run at the plate, punctuating a six-run fifth inning in which the Lady Pirates committed three infield errors and a passed ball, and hit a batter.Amie Hutchison, who had a single and double at the plate, relieved Sparkman in the fifth. Gulf Coast returned the favor in the field with three errors combining with three Lady Pirates singles and a batter reaching first on a wild-pitch third strike for six Pensacola runs.Kristina Manthei came on in relief to finally end the game, and started the nightcap in the circle for Gulf Coast.Manthei didnt allow a hit for three innings, then was relieved by Alex Watson after Madison Marshall singled Alexis Guzman walked in the fourth.Watson pitched out of that situation, but Pensacola starter Shelby Griffin settled down after allowing two hits and two runs in Gulf Coasts first inning. Raines struck again with another RBI single.But this time the Lady Pirates persevered. Kayla Liebmans sacrifice fly in the fifth inning narrowed Gulf Coasts lead to 2-1, and three hits combined with two key Gulf Coast errors and enabled Pen-sacola to pull ahead with three runs in the sixth.The clutch hit was a two-run single by pinch hitter Jensen Strick-land after Sparkman had relieved Watson with one out in the sixth.Gulf Coast takes a much-needed break until returning to action in a conference doubleheader on Tuesday at Tallahassee.Pensacola rallies for softball split with Gulf Coast Defensive tackle Marvin Wilson said last year was more like a job than having fun. A lot of that was because of the Seminoles going 7-6 and Fishers messy exit.Fisher had hoped to finish last season as Florida States coach but resigned Dec. 1 amid anger from the administration and parents when he wasnt forthcoming about pur-suing the Texas A&M opening. Fisher now refers to the school he led to the 2013 national championship as the other placeŽ while Florida State President John Thrasher has said in a couple speeches to groups that he no longer holds his wallet when walking by the football offices.But theres nothing but positive vibes at Taggarts practices „ so far.It doesnt feel like a job anymore. It feels like something we love,Ž Wilson said. You loved football in high school, now you love it again in college.ŽTaggart was quick to note that having fun will not get in the way of fundamentals and technique. But when a player does something noteworthy, like Cyrus Fagan did when he inter-cepted a pass, it should be celebrated by the team.I dont believe in doing anything and not having fun.,Ž he said. Im big on quotes, as you know. Ralph Emer-son said, Nothing great happens without enthu-siasm. I believe in that and want our guys to be that way daily.ŽOn the field, Taggart and his assistants „ which includes only one holdover from the previous staff „ are using the 16 practices between now and the April 14 spring game to get a better gauge on their personnel. Taggart has told his players that the depth chart throughout the spring will be fluid and that those who grasp the system the quickest will rise to the top.Most of the focus will be at quarterback. Deondre Francois, who suffered a knee injury in last seasons opener against Alabama, will be limited to non-con-tract drills as sophomore James Blackman and redshirt freshman Brady Hockman take the snaps.Blackman, who threw for 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season, said he has been watching Oregons games from last season to get a better grasp of the system.The play calls that they give us, were get-ting them down pretty well,Ž he said. Weve been working them out in 7-on-7 by ourselves.ŽHockman said the play calls are a lot simpler and that the offense is more toned down but its effective.ŽBesides vying for spots on the depth chart, numbers one through nine on the roster also are up for grabs. Akers, who wore No. 4 last season, was wearing No. 23 on Wednesday.Even though Akers rushed for 1,025 yards and seven touchdowns last season, Taggart said the players have to earn their numbers back, which Akers said he liked.I know when I was growing up the single digits went to the dudes. Thats kind of how we want it,Ž Taggart said. Not everyone can be a single digit. Getting it is being one of the best.Ž TAGGARTFrom Page C1Tuesdays game was decided well before the final 90 seconds thanks to the big Gulf Coast run and some stifling defense that limited San Jacinto to one made field goal over the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter. That defensive energy was needed on a night when the Lady Commodores struggled to find any offensive rhythm and shot just 37 percent from the field and 3 of 20 from the 3-point line.That was absolutely the difference,Ž Scovel said of the fourth quarter defense. We finally played aggres-sive defense and denied passing lanes, contested shots, and communicated. That was the difference in the game.ŽGulf Coast (27-2) will likely need more consistent execution at both ends of the court in todays quarterfinal game against Seward County (Kan.) (31-3) at 3 p.m. CDT. The Saints advanced Tuesday with an 88-81 win over South Georgia Tech thanks to a 9-0 run in the final two minutes of the game. Seward County made 17 of 34 from the 3-point line, with top scorer Mollie Mounsey making 6 of 11 en route to a game-high 24 points.Mounsey is shooting 44 percent from the 3-point line for the season and the Saints shoot 36 percent from deep as a team on 31 attempts per game.Theyre a tremendous 3-point shooting team,Ž Scovel said. Theyre high energy, play a great trapping zone, and they shoot the ball really well. Weve got to really guard and contest shots. We cant let them control the tempo and get us standing around watch-ing. We have to pursue and contest defensively to win.ŽThe two teams faced off last season in the quarterfinals and Gulf Coast came away with an 83-72 win. The Saints have averaged 28 wins per season over the past five years under coach Toby Wynn, and theyre 63-6 over the past two seasons.They have a nice team and theyve always had a great program and a great coach,Ž Scovel said. Theyre very fun-damentally sound, pass the ball extremely well, move it well, execute on offense, get great looks, and take great shots. Theyre very well coached and very well disciplined. Im not even sure if we play our normal game that it will be good enough. We may have to play a little better than normal to win.Ž Scovel didnt go so far as to predict a Gulf Coast victory, but she did feel comfortable saying that the Lady Commodores team that takes the floor today would look differ-ent than the one that did so Tuesday. We had a great prac-tice (Wednesday) that was high energy,Ž she said. We went over the things we need to do to play better and beat Seward. Hopefully, well be in a better mindset and not be nervous or scared or whatever the case was. I think well play better. I cant tell you well win, but I think well play better.ŽThe winner will play again Friday in the semifinals at 7 p.m. The championship game is Saturday at 7 p.m. COMMODORESFrom Page C1We've got another installation tomorrow. Eventually what you want to see is when it catches up to them and they eventually give you the deer-in-the-headlight look where kind of, 'OK, my brain is now like maxed with all the stuff you're throwing at me.' "So far, it appears true freshman quarterback Emory Jones is keeping up with the more experienced quarterbacks. Hes the one true dualthreat QB in the group, and obviously the most comfortable when the situation calls for him to run the ball.Jones also showed some arm strength and accuracy in last Saturdays open practice.Hes a high school kid coming in cool and collected a little bit, not panicking,Ž co-offensive coordinator John Hevesy said. You see him in there trying to make his reads, trying to do things. Everything is a little slower than it is for the two older guys that have been around for at least college football. But to me, just impressed with how hes handled his mannerisms in the huddle. On the line of scrimmage, hes done a very good job.ŽPerhaps the forgotten player in the quarterback race is Kyle Trask, who emerged as a contender for the starting role last spring, but injured his knee early in the 2017 season and wasnt heard from again.The redshirt sophomore is back, zipping the ball around the practice field. Hes also shown he can make some things happen with his legs.Hes got a live arm,Ž Mullen said. Throws the ball really well. Hes got a lot of talent. Watching him, I think hes bought in to what we want to do.I tell (the quarterbacks) that running aspect, I just want you to be a willing runner. If the defense gives you the opportunity to run, go run and go do it. Hes shown a decent bit of athleticism to be able to run the ball as well.Ž LEARNINGFrom Page C1 The Associated PressPITTSBURGH „ Sidney Crosby ignited a rally with a highlight-reel goal and became the third active player with 700 career assists in the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.Crosby picked up his 24th goal of the season when he knocked a pass from Jake Guentzel out of the air, deflected it toward the front of his stick and smacked it by Carey Price to tie it at 3 late in the second period. Derick Brassard put the Penguins in front to stay, beating Price early in the third period as Pittsburgh avoided dropping both games of a back-to-back against also-rans Montreal and the New York Islanders. Guentzel had a goal and two assists. His 21st goal of the season came off an assist from Crosby, the 700th of Crosbys career. Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist also scored for the Penguins, who drew within two points of idle first-place Washington in the Metropolitan Division. Casey DeSmith finished with 27 saves.Jonathan Drouin, Nikita Scherbak and Jacob de la Rose scored for the Cana-diens, who have dropped nine of their last 10 games. Price made 34 stops in his first start in a month due to a concussion.COYOTES 4, SABRES 1: Clayton Keller had two assists to break the Arizona record for points by a rookie in the Coyotes victory over Buffalo in a matchup of the NHLs two worst teams.

** The News Herald | Thursday, March 22, 2018 C3 SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFLOUISVILLE, KY.Louisville hoops parts ways with coach PadgettLouisville didnt take long to make its first offseason move, parting ways with interim mens basketball coach David Padgett less than 24 hours after the Cardi-nals season ended.The former Cardinals player was brought in to bring calm amid turmoil and upheaval after the school placed coach Rick Pitino on unpaid administrative leave following its acknowledgement that it was being investigated in a federal corruption probe of college basketball.Padgett did his job. He went 22-14 after being elevated from second-year Louisville assistant last fall.It was just a learning experience,Ž Padgett said Wednesday at a news conference on campus. I didnt give myself expectations, I didnt give my team expectations. But having never done something before, youre always going to say, how am I going to do, doing it for the first time. All things considered, I think it went really, really well.ŽThe AD didnt elaborate on candidates to replace Padgett, but later said that Louisville would seek a top-level coach.NEW YORKLieberman to coach team in BIG3 leagueHall of Famer Nancy Lieberman will coach a team in the BIG3 this season.Lieberman, a former basketball star who has coached in the NBA, WNBA and NBA Develop-ment League, will lead the Power team, the league announced Wednesday. She replaces Clyde Drex-ler, who recently accepted a job as commissioner of the 3-on-3 league of former NBA players.Lieberman was a three-time All-American at Old Dominion and two-time U.S. Olympian. She was a head coach in the WNBA and the Dallas Mavericks minor league affiliate, plus an assistant for the Sacramento Kings.CHARLOTTE, N.C.NBC lands Indy 500, promises IndyCar boostThe Indianapolis 500, an American staple on ABC for 53 years, will have a new television home next season.In fact, the entire Indy-Car package is moving to NBC in 2019 in what could turn out to be an exceptional deal for the series because of promised increased exposure across multiple platforms.Thats secondary, though, to another network ending ABCs stranglehold on the The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.Ž The Indy 500 on ABC is the second-longest partnership in television and sports events behind only the Masters, which has been on CBS since 1956. Its a jewel ABC did not particularly want to give up, and IndyCar wasnt unhappy with the networks production of its most important asset. The Associated Press By Joedy McCrearyThe Associated PressDURHAM, N.C. „ Duke and Kentucky are viewed as the masters of the one-and-done era, winning championships with extraordinarily young rosters.Both programs have a chance to do it again.After several potential one-and-done phenoms were bounced from the NCAA Tournament in the opening weekend, the Blue Devils and Wild-cats are the teams still playing that have rosters stacked with high-profile freshmen.Duke, the No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region, starts four freshmen „ led by Wooden Award finalist Marvin Bagley III „ while Kentucky, the Souths No. 5 seed, features Kevin Knox as its centerpiece.The Wildcats (26-10), arguably the biggest ben-eficiary of a run of upsets in the South, play ninthseeded Kansas State on Thursday night in Atlanta. The following night, Duke (28-7) faces a rematch with 11th-seeded Syracuse in a Midwest semifinal in Omaha, Nebraska.Hall of Fame Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said his freshmen are not afraid of the moment. Its how much preparation do they have for the moment?Were trying to condense about four years into eight months,Ž he said. I dont know how its going to turn out. You just kind of live it.ŽAmong the star freshmen who didnt make it to the tournaments second weekend were Arizonas Deandre Ayton, Oklahomas Trae Young, Missouris Michael Porter Jr., Michigan States Jaren Jackson, Alabamas Collin Sexton and Texas Mohamed Bamba. Young and Bamba have already declared for the draft.Both the Blue Devils and Wildcats have previously had predominantly young teams cut down the nets at past Final Fours. Kentucky won a national title in 2012 behind top-two draft picks Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, while Dukes most recent national title came in 2015 behind three one-anddone freshmen „ Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow and Tyus Jones.Duke, Kentucky lean on freshmen in NCAAs In this March 23, 1963 photo, Loyola coach George Ireland, right, bends over to issue orders to his team during the title game in Louisville, Ky. [ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTOS] Loyolas run shines light on barrier-breaking 1963 national title teamBy Andrew SeligmanThe Associated PressCHICAGO „ Under the bright lights of the popping flashbulbs, Jerry Harkness grasped the magnitude of the moment.There he was on that day in March 1963, a black player from Loyola of Chicago shak-ing hands with a white player from Mississippi State, Joe Dan Gold, at center court. They were about to tip off in a regional semifinal in East Lansing, Michigan, that would come to be known as the Game of Change.Boy, the flashbulbs. I couldnt believe,Ž Harkness recalled this week. I just couldnt understand.... I was shocked. I looked him in his eyes. He didnt smile; I tried to smile at him. I could tell he was there, he was happy to play us and he was happy to be there. He had on his game face. I was shocked with the bulbs and I went back to the huddle in kind of a daze, a little. I thought, boy, this is more than a game. This is history.ŽLoyola is back in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1985 thanks to two last-second shots and two prayers answered for Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the 98-year-old team chaplain who has become a celebrity during this captivating run that continues with a game against Nevada on Thursday night in Atlanta.Its also shining a light on the team that blasted through racial barriers 55 years ago. With four black starters, Loyola won what remains the only NCAA Division I championship by an Illinois school. And for the players who were there, the current run is bringing back all sorts of memories.From the taunts in Houston to the death threats mailed to their dorm, from the biggest blowout in NCAA Tournament history to the Game of Change and beating Cincinnati in overtime to win it all, it was unforgettable. Three years later, Texas Western with five black starters beat Adolph Rupps all-white Kentucky team for the cham-pionship. But the Ramblers ad started paving that glory road, whether they realized it at the time or not.Was it impactful? Yes, it was very impactful,Ž said Ron Miller, a guard from the Bronx. My opinion was we did not realize what we were going through, nor did we fully appreciate it at the time. I think it came later. I know for me personally, it came later.ŽThey saw the obstacles in front of them, heard the insults thrown their way.Miller remembers coming off the bench the previous season because coach George Ireland was following the unwritten rule that teams could play one black player on the road, two at home and three if they were way behind. A loss in the NIT and pressure to win switched his thinking.Hed have played four green guys if they would help the team,Ž said John Egan, the point guard and lone white starter on the championship team. I believe that.ŽThe crowd in Houston late in the season was particularly brutal, hurling insults and throwing water and ice and even pennies at the players.That was the only time I was truly fearful of what might happen,Ž said center Les Hunter, who was from Nashville.The death threats, Harkness remembers, came after Loyola opened the NCAA tourney by beating Tennessee Tech by 69. The game played a few miles from campus at Northwestern remains the biggest rout in tournament history.It put the Ramblers in the regional semis against Missis-sippi State and that led to some ugly letters from Ku Klux Klan members, calling them names and saying they had no right to play, arriving at the dorm on Sheridan Road. The fact that the writers knew where the team lived was unnerv-ing to Harkness. He got two of those letters, some were sent to other teammates. Ireland wound up taking them, dis-missing the threats as junk.I was all right about it after we got over that,Ž Harkness said. I dont know why. In a couple days, we were on our way to Michigan so I felt all right at that time.ŽWhile the Ramblers dealt with threats, their opponent had to figure out a way to get to the game.Mississippi States coach and school president wanted the team to play in the tournament despite an informal rule barring the states schools from playing against racially integrated teams. The Maroons, as they were known at the time, came up with a plan to slip away and fly to the game in Michigan, avoiding an expected court order.The game itself had no such off-court drama. Loyola won by 10 and beat Illinois and Duke before dethroning twotime champion Cincinnati. The final „ featuring a combined seven black starters „ saw the Ramblers rally from 15 down in the second half to win 60-58 in overtime on Vic Rouses tip-in.So much went on back then,Ž said Harkness, who later became friends with Gold.More than a gameLoyolas Vic Rouse, left, puts in a basket in the closing seconds of the 60-58 overtime win over Cincinnati on March 23, 1963, Louisville, Ky.

** C4 Thursday, March 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Brian MahoneyThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ As Monty McCutchen visits NBA teams on behalf of referees, hes hearing plenty of what he calls constructive criticism, delivered in a professional way.Thats exactly what were hoping to attain on the floor, is that no one is asking every-one to agree, no one is asking for there not to be construc-tive criticism,Ž McCutchen said. What we are trying to achieve is the sense of how to disagree respectively, how to disagree with an empathy and understanding.ŽMcCutchen left his job on the floor during this season to become the leagues vice president and head of referee development and training. With some high tensions with both players and coaches, he and head of referee operations Michelle Johnson have been conducting respect-for-the-game sessions with each team in hopes of creating a stronger working relationship.He believes the meetings are going well, that players are seeing the commitment of the officials to have better communication.Though some players have complained that referees wont engage in discussions with them on the court, McCutchen doesnt believe relations have worsened this season, echoing comments made by Commissioner Adam Silver at the All-Star break. Yet it seems otherwise sometimes, with coaches Doc Rivers, Stan Van Gundy and Alvin Gentry all fined by the league over the last week for criticizing officials.Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, whose team was visited by McCutchen before playing the Knicks last week, said the respected referee can make things better, calling him a great ambassador and teacher.You could argue he was the top official in the game, but the job that he has taken on is a very important one because now he has a chance to impact so many other officials,Ž Carlisle said. And the other reason that he is a great person for this position is hes a great communicator. Always has been. He can carry the message to officials, he can help convey the message to players and coaches of the importance of constructive communication, how to dif-fuse the emotion in difficult situations.ŽRepresentatives of players and officials met during the All-Star break and McCutchen has taken the lead from there for the officiating side. Like with any relation-ship that has struggled, he said repairs start with better communication.He praised veteran players who have spoken up in the sessions on behalf of their clubs, and believes the discussions will pay off, even if it isnt easy to see that right away.What I am sure of is that we are willing to do our work,Ž McCutchen said. We are willing to re-examine how we can better the game that we serve, and from that perspective that the players commentary has received a reasonable ear from us. We hear you and well work on it.Ž Game of the weekIt could be the Warriors against the road warriors on Sunday.Utah has won 11 straight road games, its longest streak since the 1994-95 season. The Jazz begin a three-game trip Thursday in Dallas.

He missed one with 3.9 seconds left, giving Toronto a final shot, but DeMar DeRozans 3-pointer „ con-tested by James „ was wide left. DeRozan and Toronto coaches complained the All-Star was fouled to no avail.Love, playing his second game after missing 21 games with a broken left hand, fin-ished with 23 points and 12 rebounds and George Hill had 22 on 10-of-11 shooting for the Cavs, who were blown out by 34 points against Toronto in January.CLIPPERS 127, BUCKS 120: DeAndre Jordan had 25 points and 22 rebounds to lead Los Angeles past Milwaukee. Austin Rivers added 22 points and Lou Williams scored 19 for Los Angeles, which bounced back after a de” ating loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night. The Bucks lost All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo to a right ankle sprain late in the “ rst half. Antetokounmpo appeared to get hurt when he tripped over teammate Shabazz Muhammad under Milwaukees basket. HEAT 119, KNICKS 98: Kelly Olynyk scored 22 points and handed out a career-high 10 assists, Tyler Johnson added 22 points and the Miami Heat had little trouble on the way to beating the New York Knicks 119-98 on Wednesday night. Wayne Ellington scored 16, Justise Winslow added 15, Goran Dragic had 14 and Josh Richardson “ nished with 12 for the Heat, who remained seventh in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Olynyks previous high for assists was eight, done twice. PELICANS 96, PACERS 92: Anthony Davis capped a 28-point, 13-rebound, “ ve-block performance with a 15-foot baseline fade, a gritty put-back and two free throws in the “ nal minute, and New Orleans outlasted Indiana. ETwaun Moore scored 23 points for New Orleans, which had to overcome a scrappy defensive effort by Indiana to win its third straight. NUGGETS 135, BULLS 102: Nikola Jokic had 21 points, seven rebounds and “ ve assists on Serbian Heritage Night,Ž and the Denver Nuggets routed the Chicago Bulls 135-102 on Wednesday night. Denver shot 61.4 percent (51 for 83) from the “ eld and had seven players score in double “ gures. Paul Millsap had 22 points and eight rebounds in 27 minutes, and Wilson Chandler made “ ve of the Nuggets 20 3-pointers on his way to 19 points. HORNETS 111, NETS 105: Dwight Howard had 32 points and 30 rebounds, becoming the “ rst player with a 30-30 game against the Nets since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1978. Kemba Walker scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter for the Hornets, who trailed by as many 23 points in the second half but won in front of an announced crowd of 10,231 at Barclay Center while a heavy snowfall outside blanketed the New York City area. 76ERS 119, GRIZZLIES 105: Robert Covington, J.J. Redick and Dario Saric each had 15 points to pace all “ ve Philadelphia starters in double-“ gures, and the 76ers continued their push for home-court advantage in the playoffs with a 119-105 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.LeBron carries Cavaliers past RaptorsBy Stephen WhynoThe Associated PressThe bruises on Travis Konecnys legs are marks of Metropolitan Division hockey. In the third period of a crucial late-season divisional game, the undersized Philadelphia Flyers forward got in the way of not one but two slap shots from Washington Capitals defensemen. The two points from the victory made it all feel better.Its that time of year when those shots are crucial to make sure theyre not getting to your goaltender,Ž Konecny said. I have a feeling thats the way the body is going to feel from here on out.ŽKonecnys not the only one feeling it down the stretch in a division where the top five teams are separated by just nine points with two and a half weeks remaining in the season „ and they could all make the playoffs.Washington, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Columbus and New Jersey play six more games against each other down the stretch, too. A postseason with Metropolitan firstand second-round series is sure to bring knock-down, drag-out showdowns with not much separating these teams.It kind of depends on the timing of when you play each other,Ž Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald said. Obviously you want to finish strong and have a good finish to the season.ŽWith the Florida Panthers 11-2-1 in their past 14 games, all the contending Metro teams save for the Capitals and Penguins cant even feel safe. Its why Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux said, Right now were just trying to get into the playoffs.ŽThat kind of desperation has paid off for the streaking Blue Jackets, who have won nine in a row to solidify themselves. Five of those victories have come against teams currently in play-off position.Its great preparation,Ž Columbus general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. Every games like a playoff game for us.ŽTeams can lose three of seven playoff games and stay alive. That might not be the case the rest of the regular season for the Blue Jackets, Devils and Flyers, and its no sure bet the Capitals win the division for the third consecutive year.Beating the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night as the Penguins fell flat in a loss to the New York Islanders could wind up making a big difference.These are big points now,Ž Capitals defenseman John Carl-son said. Everyone can see how tight the race is and everybody kind of jockeying for position. Youve got to collect them when you can.A far cry from winning the Metro by seven points last year and by 16 in 2015-16, the Capitals are playing meaningful games in March and April, something that could help them in the playoffs after three con-secutive second-round exits.I hope so,Ž fourth-year coach Barry Trotz said. Its going to help not only us, its going to help Philly, its going to help all the teams who are in that when you have to play at that level.Ž Jones-ingColumbus is a serious play-off threat in large part because of Seth Jones development into a do-it-all No. 1 defense-man at age 23. Jones leads the Blue Jackets in ice time at 24:47 per night and is second on the team with 35 assists and 49 points.Hes elite among the NHL defensemen the way he can join the rush, the way he can skate the puck out of the zone,Ž said Kekalainen, who acquired Jones from Nashville for Ryan Johansen two years ago. I think his transition games gotten quicker. I think hes assumed a lot more power-play responsibility this year.Ž Donato timeWhen Ryan Donato was leading the United States in goals and points at the Olympics, dad, former NHL forward and Harvard coach Ted didnt want to say when the 21-year-old forward would make the jump to the NHL. Turns out it was as soon as Harvards season ended as the Bruins signed Donato on Sunday, plugged him in on the second line Monday and watched him record his first goal and assist.Metro Division madness helpful to playo teamsBy Doug FergusonThe Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas „ Rory McIlroy put together another flawless back nine, running off five straight birdies.This time, it wasnt enough.Former U.S. Amateur champion Peter Uihlein built a 5-up lead against McIlroy and held off his late charge with enough key shots of his own in a 2-and-1 victory, one of several surprises Wednes-day in the opening session of the Dell Technologies Match Play.Defending champion Dustin Johnson hit two shots out-of-bounds on the same hole, another tee shot in the hazard and couldnt make the putts that he couldnt afford to miss on the back nine. He wound up losing on the 17th hole to Bernd Wiesberger. Justin Thomas also got a scare, mainly because his opponent had to putt with a sand wedge over the last 12 holes.McIlroy was coming off a victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational just three days ago, when he birdied five of his last six holes to win by three shots.I felt it was going to go two different ways,Ž Uihlein said. When a guy comes off a win, next week out theyre either a little flat or still as hot as can be and theyre just going to blitz it.ŽMcIlroy, Johnson, Mickelson lose openers in Match Play
