But in the four days after accepting inmate Darren Glover into the ICU on July 13, 2015, they diverged from that protocol out of fear they wouldnt reach him in time if he flat-lined. After his release less than a week later, his eyes still swol-len shut from being severely beaten bycorrection officers at Apalachee Correctional Institute, he was moved to a solitary concrete box at Florida State Prison „ where conditions are considered to be worse than those for death row inmates „for maximum managementŽ as part of his punishment based on the reports the officers wrote after the beating. More than 100 summer days passed before Glover was transferred to a lower level of confine-ment „ though still in closed management „ where he remained until this January, when a jury found that the guard charged in the beating falsified his report.In that time, a technicality caused his interracial marriage, which had led to the beating, to become official. However, Darren and Jenni-fer Glover had to wait more than two years before they could have their first kiss as husband and wife.Thats a long time to be in confinement for some-thing you didnt do,Ž Jennifer Glover said. We had to talk through glass.

Michael Baxter, 49, of the Apalachee Correctional Institution in Sneads, was convicted of filing false reports in the case and faces up to 10 years in federal prison but acquitted of a charge of using excessive force. He did not respond to a request for comment.The case is one in a string of regional inmate beatings by officers to go before U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle for sentencing, but Baxter is the highest ranking officer in recent cases to be crimi-nally indicted and convicted. With Baxters sentencing set for this Thursday, Jenni-fer Glover has called for the judge to at least hand a term of imprisonment reflective of the time her husband was held in confinement for Baxters false reports: 30 months. I dont think he should do a day less,Ž she said. € € €A $40 crack deal landed Darren Glover in prison in 2007. It was his second nar-cotics-related conviction, and he also had a firearm. As a convicted felon, he was sen-tenced to 15 years in prison.He and Jennifer, who had known each other since high school and were dating at the time of his arrest, decided to get married while Darren was incarcerated for practical reasons: a wife can get more access to an inmate than a girlfriend. But she didnt real-ize the degree of pushback the couple would receive for being different races. It was a common theme,Ž Jennifer Glover said of the culture of racism she saw, noting that she didnt think it would eventually lead to physical violence. And the day before the wedding, we were warned. One officer told us a lot of people dont want to see us married. I wouldve backed down if I knew (Darren) would be in danger.ŽA day before the beating, the couple was shooting wed-ding photos in the visitation yard. Jennifer Glover said she had been flirtatiously trying to get Darren to smile for the camera when she overheard an officer say, I dont want to see that (expletive).Ž An officer also issued Darren a complaint for his shoes being loose during the photo shoot.The couple brushed it off, but the next morning, July 13, 2015 „ moments before the Glovers were scheduled to get married „ Baxter called Darren Glover to his office to discuss the loose shoes. There, Baxter head-butted Darren Glover, and then officers held him down while Baxter repeatedly kicked him in the face, according to gov-ernment witnesses.Despite the bride-to-be waiting in the lobby at the time, officers did not tell Jen-nifer Glover about the events, saying only that the wedding would not take place. As her fiance was taken to ICU, Jennifer Glover was also not made aware of the critical nature of his injuries until a couple of inmates called her late the following day. She couldnt reach Darren, but hospital staff relayed his condition.The nurse cried when she was telling me about his inju-ries,Ž Jennifer Glover said.In maximum management after leaving ICU, Darren Glover couldnt see for nine days. He lost 40 pounds in the 101 total days of isolation. Jennifer Glover made a plea for mercy to the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC), which eventually worked, but it would be just the first in a string of battles to have the wrongs of the beating righted.Ultimately, Baxter was convicted in January of this year for falsifying reports that led to Darren Glovers confinement. A jury found that he did not use excessive force, though. Shortly after the verdict, FDOC began the process of reversing some of the damage.In an almost unprecedented move, FDOC reversed Baxters battery on an officer reports and restored Darren Glovers gain time of a year and a half that had been taken away as a result of the allegations.Jennifer Glover said she repeatedly told Darren that if the officers tried to provoke him, do not resist, and she would get justice for him. When he was finally able to talk on the phone, Darren told her he kept repeating that to himself during the beating.The only thing he said was that he didnt do anything,Ž Jennifer Glover said. He just fell to the ground and put his arms by his sides.ŽJennifer Glover said her husband still has scars and vision problems from the beating, but the damage lin-gers below the surface as well. She said Darrens spirit was changed by not defending himself during the beating, and he still has flashbacks. The trauma also has had an impact on their relationship.Im scared to hold his hand or show him any affection, because I dont want the offi-cers to do anything,Ž Jennifer Glover said. The last time I kissed him, he got beat.Ž € € €The beating isnt the first of its kind for correction officers at nearby prisons. U.S. District Attorney for the Northern District of Florida Christopher Canova, whose office has been prosecuting the cases, declined to com-ment on the topic.However, Mike Stone, chair of the Bay County American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), said inmate beatings perpe-trated by officers violates two Constitutional Amendments „ the Eighth, which protects people from enduring cruel and unusual punishment, and the Fifth, which guard against the deprivation of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness without due process.When an officer beats an inmate, he deprives him of due process,Ž Stone said.Stone said a prison sen-tence is meant to be a debt for a prisoner to pay before being released. The act of beating an inmate sends the message that prisoners have no human value, and they carry that with them once they are released. Stone advised policy makers should look at the European penal system, where he said shorter sentences and less harsh conditions foster a safer environment for guards and prisoners alike.Stone, a local defense attorney, said his clients families often agree their loved one should pay for their crime. But there is a danger factor, which often pushes them toward fighting charges and chancing a lengthier sentence.No one wants a prison sentence to become a death sentence,Ž he added.FDOC officials said they have taken steps toward preventing officer-perpe-trated beatings and have had no significant cases in recent history. Some of those steps have been to add more cam-eras in areas of the prisons and added more Office of Inspector Generals (OIG) to investigate reports from inmates and staff.These indictments do not in any way represent the thousands of FDC officers who work bravely and diligently to ensure the safety of the individuals in our cus-tody,Ž wrote Michelle Glady, FDOC director of communi-cations. The Department has zero tolerance for officer misconduct, and we respond rapidly whenever these cases do occur. Any officer found to be engaging in unauthorized use of force is immediately investigated by the Depart-ments Office of the Inspector General and is subject to dis-missal and criminal charges.Ž€ € €While FDOC is said to be attempting to correct the faults in Floridas penal system,local recent history has not cast a favorable light on the agency.In December, Gulf Cor-rectional Institute Sgt. Willie L. Walker was sentenced to spend 21 months in federal prison followed by a year of supervised release and ordered to forfeit his retirement benefits from his time as an officer. He faced 10 years after being convicted of attacking inmate William Hernandez in March 2015 and leaving him with severe injuries, including a fractured nose and head wound that required several staples.Walker, without cause, sprayed Hernandez with pepper spray, or O.C. spray, and began to punch and kick him, according to court records.Walker also hit Hernan-dez in the head with the O.C. spray can, causing further injury,Ž officials reported. After Hernandez fell to the floor, Walker continued to punch and kick Hernandez.ŽIn an attempt to establish that he had acted in selfdefense, Walker planted a homemade weapon or shank.Ž Walker also falsified reports, which has been a recurring theme among officer attacks on inmates. Walker was the first in several recent cases, though, to receive prison time.In August 2015, a group of officers dubbed The Chi-pley FiveŽ conspired to attack inmate Jeremiah Tatum. All five of the former prison guards „ William Finch, James Perkins, Robert Miller, Christopher Christmas and Dalton Riley „ were fired from the Northwest Florida Reception Center in Wash-ington County and sentenced to either probation or house arrest. Capt. James Kirkland, who orchestrated the attack as a form of retaliation, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound before he could be prosecuted.At the sentencing, Hinkle said in court that had Kirkland been alive and convicted, the punishment would have been much more severe for him as the supervisor and orchestra-tor of the attack.Tatum also sustained seri-ous injuries, including several broken teeth, and sued the surviving officers and the FDOC, but the case was dis-missed in early October after an undisclosed out-of-court settlement. € € €Darren Glovers case is not the first time Baxter has been the subject of federal court hearings in connection with inmate abuse allegations.Baxter was dismissed in September after about 30 years of service with FDOC, at one point reaching the promi-nent rank of colonel. In that time, Baxter was the subject of numerous complaints from inmates accusing him of using excessive force as he rose in rank. In many cases, the inmates claims were found by inspectors to be unsubstanti-ated or investigative leads ran dry, FDOC records stated.On a couple of occasions, however, the outcome was not favorable to Baxter, including a case that occurred when he was a colonel.In 2013, Baxter and a group of officers were sued in federal court for abuse by then-inmate Dwight Porter, who also is a black man. He alleged the group of officers at Graceville Correctional Institute threatened to bust his head to the white meat and kick him asleepŽ if he refused to work because of a preexisting shoulder injury or gave them any more trouble, the complaint stated.After slipping in the prison kitchen and going to the infir-mary in 2008, Porter said the officers made good on the threat inside a supervisors office, beating him and alleg-edly spitting in his face while calling him racial slurs. Porter specifically named Baxter among the officers as rough-ingŽ him up and twisting his injured arm.They all said that if (Porter) tells this to anybody, he would die,Ž the complaint states. And he would still be work-ing in the kitchen.ŽBaxter and some of the offi-cers, including the assistant warden, settled the lawsuit outside of court as the trial date approached. Porter asked for $500,000 in damages, but the amount was not disclosed in court records.Some time afterward, Baxter was demoted to major.€ € €With Baxter scheduled to face a judge Thursday, Baxters attorneys have called for a new trial because the jury found him guilty of one charge but not guilty of a second. In the response from U.S. Attorneys Office, pros-ecutors argued against the request and indicated the offi-cers who testified on Baxters behalf during his trial could face perjury charges.Jennifer Glover said the perjury charges should go all the way up to the ACI Warden Tony Barfields office, too, because he signed off on the falsified reports. She called on FDOC to at least repri-mand the warden but seemed to believe that would never happen.All this happened under his watch, and he is still making decisionsŽ Jennifer Glover said. That doesnt show to me that this is an agency trying to clean up its act.ŽJennifer Glover said with her husbands gain time restored after the jurys ver-dict, she is looking forward to him getting out in July 2019. She said the two plan on start-ing a family and running their own business. But after the experience of being targets of racial violence, they will be doing it someplace other than the South.I just want to get as far away as possible,Ž she said.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 A3By R.j. RicoThe Associated PressATLANTA „ The nations chief doctor wants more Americans to start carrying the over-dose antidote naloxone to help combat the nations opioid crisis and save lives.Speaking at the National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit in Atlanta on Thursday morning, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams issued his offices first national public health advisory in 13 years.Adams said he hopes those who are at risk „ as well as their friends and family members „ will keep the antidote on hand and learn how to use it. You dont have to be a policeman or a firefighter or a paramedic to save a life,Ž said Adams, who pointed out that more than half of opioid overdose deaths in the U.S. occur at home.According to federal data, more than 42,000 Americans suffered fatal opioid overdoses in 2016, more than double the number who died in 2010.Naloxone can restore a persons breathing after it is injected or sprayed in the nostrils, quickly bringing overdose victims back from near-death.The drug, which is often referred to by the brand name Narcan, is available without a prescription in most states and is regularly used by first responders across the country. Another product, Evzio, is available with a prescription and delivers naloxone via a hand-held auto-injector.Adams said 95 percent of all insured Americans are covered to purchase naloxone. First responders and community organizations can purchase Narcan nasal spray, one of the most widely available products, at group discounts of $37.50 per dose, drug-maker Adapt Pharma said in a news release.Generic, injectable versions of naloxone are cheaper.For those who are uninsured, Narcan can cost around $80 per dose but the antidote is often available at little or no cost through local public health programs, Adams said. The surgeon general also wants more federal funds dedicated to increasing naloxone access on local levels. Costs should not and, in the near future, will not be a barrier to accessing naloxone for anyone in America,Ž Adams said.As of July 2017, all 50 states have passed laws improving naloxone access, according to The Network for Public Health Law, a nonprofit that helps government agencies.Maines Republican Gov. Paul LePage has been one of the most outspoken opponents of the push, arguing that naloxone doesnt treat addiction and merely discourages people from seeking treatment by essentially offering a safety net if they do overdose.Proponents, however, argue that greater access to naloxone doesnt draw people to illegal drug use or foster an addiction.A box of Narcan spray is displayed after a news conference in Cincinnati. U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said he wants more Americans to start carrying Narcan. [JOHN MINCHILLO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Carry opioid antidote, surgeon general urges

Johnson, Americas first black billionaire, said during a CNBC appearance Friday that black Americans should be encouraged by the growing economy under President Donald Trump. Some-thing is going right,Ž said Johnson, owner and chairman of Bethesda, Maryland-based asset management firm RLJ Companies.He cited the December jobs report showing that unemployment among black workers was at its lowest since the Labor Department began tracking the data in 1972.Black unemployment did fall to 6.8 percent in December, before rising and dipping again to 6.9 percent in March, accord-ing to the latest jobs numbers released Friday. But black unemployment remains almost double the white unemployment rate of 3.6 percent, even though the gap has nar-rowed somewhat.Johnson, during his appearance on Squawk BoxŽ on Friday morning before the March jobs report was released, was optimistic about how black Americans will con-tinue to fare economically.You have to take encouragement from whats happening in the labor force and the job market,Ž he said. When you look at African-American unemployment, in over 50 years since the Bureau of Labor Statistics has been keeping the numbers, youve never had two things: African-American unemployment this low and the spread between unemployment among whites and African-Americans narrowing.That absolutely means the jobs market is solicit-ing employees who have been out of the labor force, some of it just based on discrimination, some of it based on changes in education, access and technology changes,Ž he continued. And so when you look at that, you have to say something is going right.ŽJohnson praised the current U.S. business environment, if you take into account the Trump tax cut,Ž he said. I believe the economy is on a strong growth path.ŽThe December tax cuts were the largest onetime reduction in the corporate tax rate in U.S. history. The GOP bill, sold on the promise that it would drive up wages and increase job growth, also lowered taxes for the vast majority of Americans, as well as small-business owners.While Trump often claims credit for the lower black unemployment rate „ touting it in his State of the Union address in January and even tweeting a CNBC story about Johnsons comments Friday „ the brightening economic outlook preceded his presidency. The black unemployment rate had steadily declined during Barack Obamas two terms, from almost 17 percent in 2010, after the recession, down to 7.8 percent by the time Trump entered office in January 2017.Most of the program-matic work was set into motion before the last administration was leaving,Ž said Hilary Shelton, director of the NAACPs Washington bureau.Some economists criticized Johnsons rosy assessment of the economic picture for black Americans.A 6.9 percent unemployment is perhaps in a historical sense something to be happy about, but if the white unemployment rate were at 6.9 percent, we would consider this catastrophic and be very alarmed,Ž said Darrick Hamilton, an economics and urban policy professor at The New School.Hamilton noted that the structural nature of work has changed drastically since the government began tracking employment statistics, with very different implications today in regard to job security, wages and retirement benefits.Work is more precari-ous today than it was in the past, and in particular, black individuals are more likely to be in precarious employment scenarios with jobs that face greater wage and work-hour volatility,Ž Hamilton said. Bob Johnsons in the billionaires club with Donald Trump, so its not surprising that they align in their vision on labor.ŽAmericas rst black billionaire applauds Trump economyTrump

** A10 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News HeraldBush, Obama also sent National Guard to Mexico border while pushing for overhauls to immigration policyBy Nomaan MerchantThe Associated PressHOUSTON „ Since he launched his run for presi-dent, Donald Trump has said things about immi-grants and the U.S.-Mexico border that no other U.S. president has. But now hes reached directly into his predecessors playbook by sending in the National Guard.When former presi-dents George W. Bush and Barack Obama deployed the Guard to the border in 2006 and 2010, they were pushing Congress to pass wide-ranging overhauls of immigration policy. Both overhauls failed. A 2011 government review esti-mated the Bush and Obama deployments cost at least $1.3 billion.Trump is also trying to reshape immigration law. But Congress so far has funded a fraction of the border wall he promised during his campaign, so the president said this week he wants 2,000 to 4,000 Guard troops on the frontier until the wall goes up. Trump called the deploy-ments crucial to helping the U.S. Border Patrol, which after a drop-off last year has returned to apprehending about as many people as it typically does.In a tweet Saturday, Trump said: We are seal-ing up our Southern Border. The people of our great country want Safety and Security.Texas and Arizona officials said the first 400 soldiers will be in place within days, and Defense Secretary James Mattis said the Pentagon would foot the bill for the full 4,000, if needed, through September.Heres a closer look at the recent history of National Guard deployments, what the presidents who ordered them said at the time and what the state of the border was then versus now: Operation Jump Start, june 2006-july 2008WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID: For decades, the United States has not been in complete control of its borders,Ž Bush said. As a result, many who want to work in our economy have been able to sneak across our border, and millions have stayed.ŽIn announcing the operation, Bush called on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.Ž Using rhetoric very different than Trumps, Bush called immigrants without legal status a part of American life.ŽThese are real problems. Yet we must remember that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are decent people who work hard, sup-port their families, practice their faith, and lead respon-sible lives,Ž he said.HOW MANY TROOPS: Up to 6,000 Guard members in the first year, reduced to 3,000 in the second year.WHERE: About 2,400 were sent to Arizona in the first year, according to a 2008 review the Guard published about the operation. Another 1,500 were sent to Texas that year, 1,200 to California, and 900 to New Mexico. The Guard members came from all over the United States.WHY: Bush said he was trying to buy time to bolster Border Patrol staffing, which eventually grew by about one-third. He said the troops would assist Border Patrol by operating surveillance systems, analyzing intelli-gence, installing fences and vehicle barriers, building patrol roads, and provid-ing training.Ž He said Guard members would not assume law enforcement responsi-bilities and that the U.S. is not going to militarize the southern border.ŽWHAT THE GUARD DID : While Guard mem-bers could not make arrests on their own, according to government figures for the two-year operation, Guard members helped in almost 12 percent of migrant apprehensions and 9 percent of border marijuana seizures.COST: $1.2 billion, according to the U.S. Gov-ernment Accountability Office.PROBLEMS: In a 2009 article for Joint Force Quarterly, Maj. David M. Church, an Army National Guard commander during Operation Jump Start, said the operations sudden formationŽ gave the National Guard and U.S. Customs and Border Protection little time for preparation, acquaintance, and coordination.Ž The two agencies struggled to communicate and share information without prior coordination and a solid unity of effort between them,Ž though those issues eased over time. Operation Phalanx, July 2010-Sept. 2011WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID: Were not going to solve the problem just solely as a consequence of sending National Guard troops down there,Ž Obama said. Were going to solve this problem because we have created an orderly, fair, humane immigration framework in which people are able to immigrate to this country in a legal fashion; employers are held accountable for hiring legally present workers.ŽTrump uses predecessors playbookIn this Jan. 19, 2007, photo, Staff Sgt.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 A11By Marilynn MarchioneThe Associated PressThere may be a critical window for overweight kids to get to a healthy level. Those who shed their extra pounds by age 13 had the same risk of developing diabetes in adulthood as others who had never weighed too much, a large study of Danish men found.Diabetes can develop when the body cant properly use insulin to turn food into energy. Being overweight at any age raises the chances of the most common form, Type 2. But its not known whether or how much that risk is reduced if people lose weight, and when.This study seems to suggest that overweight in adolescence is particularly harmfulŽ and that reversing it by then can do a lot of good, said Dr. Stephen Daniels, pediatrics chief at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.He had no role in the study, which was led by researchers at the University of Copenhagen, sponsored by the European Union, and published Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine.It involved 62,565 men in Denmark, where mandatory school and military service exams enabled tracking their health for decades. Heights and weights were measured when they were 7, 13, and between 17 and 26.National health records were used to see how many developed diabetes in adulthood.Men who were overweight at age 7 but werent by age 13 had similar odds of diabetes later in life as men whod never been overweight.Those who were over-weight only at 13, or only at 7 and 13, had a lower risk than those who stayed overweight throughout young adult-hood but a higher risk than men whod never been overweight.Why might the teen years matter so much?At adolescence you become more insulin resistant, just sort of a natural part of puberty,Ž Daniels explained.The muscles and organs dont use insulin as well after then, so it takes more to get the same job done, he said.The study had many limitations „ it was only in men, and there was no information on what they weighed in adult-hood, when the diabetes developed.It was a different time and place „ decades ago in Denmark, only 5 percent to 8 percent of these men had been overweight as children or teens. Today in the United States, about 35 percent of kids are, and more than 23 percent are worldwide.Tips for curtailing diabetes in kids This April 3 photo shows a closeup of a beam scale in New York.

** A12 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News Heraldout in recent months to hundreds of children in a dozen classrooms across New York and New Jersey.The classes are free, folded into kids daily schedules and taught in the classrooms where the fifthand sixth-graders typically learn about the scientific method and the food chain. Gaia Ber-nstein, director of Seton Hall Laws Institute for Privacy Protection, which designed the program, said each class includes about a half-dozen lessons taught to the kids over several weeks, as well as a separate set of lectures for parents con-cerned about how their children are disappearing into their screens.ŽProfessors designed the program „ funded by a $1.7 million grant awarded by a federal judge as part of a class-action consumerprotection settlement over junk faxes „ to teach students about privacy, reputation, online adver-tising and overuse at the age when their research found that many Ameri-can kids get their first cellphone, about 10 years old, though some in their classes were given phones years earlier.The Seton Hall instruc-tors speak of the classes in the same ways others might talk about sex edu-cation: hugely important, underappreciated and, well, a bit awkward to teach. But they said they had no interest in teaching kids digital abstinence or instructing parents how to be the computer police. The Internet, they conceded, is a fact of life, and the kids always find ways around their parents bar-riers, anyway. In designing the classes, Bernstein said she was surprised at how little attention most schools paid to the digital worlds its students were immersed in every day „ and, as a parent, she often wished she had done things differ-ently with her 15-year-old son. She could find few other classes that included both the kids and parents in broader conversations about tech dependence and digital tracking. Other programs, she said, seemed unrealistic or out of date, aimed at choosing good passwords or avoiding bad chat rooms but silent on the daily questions of attention and privacy.Everybody seems to focus on things that are unlikely „ a stranger online taking your child away,Ž Bernstein said, adding, There are things that happen every day that parents arent taught about „ children posting things on Instagram or a group text that could have an effect on their social lives, their college admis-sions, their futures.ŽThat privacy debate was rekindled recently by news that the personal information of as many as 87 million Facebook users, mostly in the United States, had been gathered by the political data firm Cambridge Analytica „ a sign, Bernstein said, that these were issues affect-ing lots of adults, too.Everybodys so appalled about how that information got out,Ž she said. But the problem is how the information gets in, the fact that we cant resist putting our information in, because the platforms are so addictive.ŽThe tech giants have shown a growing interest in catering to a younger clientele. Facebook recently released an app, Messenger Kids, aimed at children as young as 6. Apple in March unveiled family-focused suggestions on how its devices could help people become better parents and intro-duced classroom-friendly iPads at a high school on Chicagos North Side.But even supporters of those companies are sounding the alarm about the potential for childhood havoc. Two major Wall Street investors „ the Jana Partners hedge fund and CalSTRS, the California teachers pension fund „ urged Apple in January to study the health effects of its products on young minds and make it easier for parents to limit iPad and iPhone use. That month, Apple chief executive Tim Cook told an audience at a British college that he would not allow his young nephew on social networks. Often, the kids-only online playgrounds advertised by the services as cures for parental anxi-ety carry subtle risks of their own. YouTube Kids, with its 11 million active viewers every week, was found by the website Busi-ness Insider to have steered young audiences to conspiracy theories and lewd videos, probably because the video giants recommendation algorithms have trouble understanding context and filtering out junk. Netflix, which offers an exhaustive stream of shows for kids, tested in March „ and, after backlash, quickly killed „ a video-game-like rewards system that would give special patchesŽ to kids on a streaming binge.Parents and schools, meanwhile, have often struggled to keep up. The ideas for protecting kids „ screen-time limits, content ratings and campaigns such as Wait Until 8th, which urges parents to delay giving their kids smartphones until eighth grade „ have been mostly scattershot, untested and devised on the fly. Jamie Winterton, a cybersecurity expert at Arizona State University, said she tells her teenage kids to go on the Internet only with an online secret identity, like a spy.ŽBut there is a growing push among teachers and education advocates to focus school resources on combating the dangers of the Web. The advocacy group Common Sense Media in February said it would expand a digital citizenshipŽ curriculum now offered free at tens of thousands of nationwide public schools touching on topics of self-image, relationships, information literacy and mental well-being. Lesson plans for the program, which one executive called drivers ed for the Internet,Ž range from kindergarten (Going Places Safely,Ž Screen Out the MeanŽ) to high school (Taking Perspectives on Cyberbullying,Ž Oops! I Broadcast It on the Internet.ŽCyberbullying, in particular, has gained recent attention in the White House after first lady Melania Trump met in March with representatives from Facebook, Google and Twitter for a summit on the need for kindness online.ŽThe Seton Hall pro-grams elementary classes serve as a childrens guide to some of the Webs biggest pitfalls and thorniest debates. For a lesson on privacy, the kids are taught that sharing personal information online is like walking around with a sign on their back telling everyone about how they embarrassed themselves at summer camp „ as well as their phone number, their best friends names and their bad grade in math.Kids are taught how websites track them (digi-tal footprintsŽ), what kinds of content they should be careful sharing (bad-hair days,Ž potty trainingŽ) and how long their selfies last (forever, basically). They are taught about location-based, contextual and behaviorally targeted ads, and why, when it comes to personal data, theyre sometimes not the customer but the product. Advertisers want to make us believe that their prod-ucts are good so that we purchase them,Ž a slide from that lesson says.The students parents are offered separate com-panion classes in which, Bernstein said, many have agonized over how to set reasonable rules for their kids with technologies they barely understand. The classes focus largely on how parents should deal with kids overuse and, in a world where much of their homework and friendships play out online, what normal use even looks like. What really bothers parents is how they are losing their children,Ž Bernstein said, and how family life is changing.ŽA big part of those adult lectures, she added, is teaching the parents that how they use their phones matters, too. The kids, theyve found, have often ended up taking after the grown-ups: When the par-ents are constantly buried in their phones, the kids end up buried as well.During Bromfields lesson in Newark one morning in March, the young students were given gift of timeŽ cards, which they were told to label with the person in their life whom they were craving more time with, undistracted by the Web. Nearly every student labeled it with the name of a brother, sister or parent; one boy said he would give his to his dad, who is on his phone 24/7, even when were in the car.ŽBromfield said she was surprised how wise the kids in her digital-privacy classes were to the dark side of the Internet. During lessons, she said, kids had warned her to watch out for scammers, not trust search results and be careful around companies selling her personal data.Some students said they have self-imposed limits on their screen time and talked about how they clear their minds after so much time online. One 10-year-old student said in Bromfields class that she uses the Moment app to track and limit her Snapchat and YouTube use.These kids are much more savvy than we had anticipated,Ž said Najarian Peters, an assistant professor at the Seton Hall institute. Theyre also very observant about how technology affects the people around them „ how their parents or siblings or friends can often be more engaged in their devices than they would like.Ž INTERNETFrom Page A1Yolanda Brom“ eld teaches a “ fth-grade class about digital privacy and online-of” ine balance last month in Newark, part of a program devised by professors at Seton Hall University Law School.

Specif-ically, 384 of them in 12 days?Try outer space.Houston-based Orion Span hopes to launch the first luxury hotel in spaceŽ „ the 35-by-14 foot Aurora Sta-tion „ by late 2021 and bring guests on board the following year. The hotel will accommo-date up to four travelers and two crew members at a time, racing them around the planet at high speeds for 12 days, the company said in a news release.Adventurers pay $9.5 mil-lion per person „ or about $791,666 a night „ and their $80,000 deposit can already be reserved online, com-pany officials said. But dont fear: The deposit is fully refundable.We want to get people into space because its the final frontier for our civiliza-tion,Ž Orion Spans founder and chief executive, Frank Bunger, told Bloomberg.Bunger said that one reason Orion Span can aim for a price of less than $10 million per person is because of the declining price of launches.Everybodys forecasting that [launch prices are] going to fall,Ž he told Bloomberg. Almost every week theres another rocket launch company thats starting up with a new way to get to orbit cheaper, faster, better.ŽOrion Spans announcement of a luxury hotel in space comes amid a revival of the commercial space industry. The launch of Elon Musks Falcon Heavy from the Kennedy Space Center in February, for example, was the latest in a series of milestones that have renewed companies interest in space. The launch raised the question of whether SpaceX and other private enterprises could maintain their momen-tum and fulfill the promise of returning humans to space. That likelihood could increase as the Trump administration looks to restructure the role of NASA, allowing private enterprise and international partners to work closely with the space agency.Orion Spans proposed hotel offers plenty of attractions: zero gravity flying throughout the station, views of patrons home towns from space, the ability to take part in research experiments such as growing food while in orbit, and live-streams with friends and family at home through high-speed Internet.Since commercial spaceflight has yet to launch humans into space, Aurora Station visitors will have three months of training, which would begin with online courses to better understand basic space-flight, orbital mechanics, and pressurized environments in space,Ž officials told Bloom-berg. The guests will also have contingency training at the companys headquarters in Houston.Orion Span has ... taken what was historically a 24-month training regimen to prepare travelers to visit a space station and streamlined it to three months, at a frac-tion of the cost,Ž company officials said. Our goal is to make space accessible to all, by continuing to drive greater value at lower cost.ŽBunger, a former software engineer, told Bloomberg that the experience wont be for everyone. The Aurora Station will mainly cater to those who are passionate about space and astronomical study.Were not selling a hey-lets-go-to-the-beach equivalent in space,Ž Bunger said. Were selling the expe-rience of being an astronaut. You reckon that there are people who are willing to pay to have that experience.ŽSpace hotel hopes to welcome guests by 2022


** A14 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Matthew PerroneThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ A slim majority of Americans see prescription drug addiction as a disease that requires medical treatment, but most would not welcome those suffering from the problem into their neigh-borhoods, workplaces or families.New survey results reveal Americans complex view of addic-tion as the deadliest drug epidemic in U.S. history ripples through communities nationwide. More than 1 in 10 Americans say they have had a relative or close friend die from an opioid overdose, according a recent survey by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.Opioids are an addictive class of drugs that includes both prescription medicines like Vicodin and OxyContin and illicit drugs like heroin and fentanyl. Overdose deaths linked to the drugs have quadrupled since 2000, reaching an all-time high of 42,000 in 2016.The wave of addiction has dragged down the national life expectancy, strained local budgets and challenged officials at every level of government. A study by the Kaiser Family Foundation released Thursday found large employers spent a record $2.6 billion to treat opioid addiction and overdoses in 2016, an eightfold increase since 2004. Most medical authori-ties view drug addiction as a disease. The National Institute on Drug Abuse describes it as a longterm, treatable brain disease. Although 53 percent of Americans view addic-tion as a medical problem, they remain wary of the afflicted. Fewer than 1 in 5 Americans are willing to closely associate with someone suffering from drug addiction as a friend, co-worker or neighbor.Emily Fleischer, a 36-year-old librarian, says she has seen the effects of the opioid epidemic in her home state of Indiana, includ-ing a massive one-year increase in children forced into the foster care system due to drug misuse at home. She understands people wanting to keep their distance from those who misuse drugs, given their association with high-risk behaviors.I can see why people wouldnt want that to be up close and personal, even if they do feel it is a disease and not the persons fault,Ž Fleischer said.Medical experts say overcoming the stigma of addiction is an essen-tial part of expanding treatment.About 2.1 million Americans are addicted to opioids but only about 1 in 5 received specialized treatment, according to the latest federal figures.When something is stigmatized nobody wants to bring it up, so therefore people who need the help are less willing to come forward,Ž said Dr. Corey Waller, an addiction specialist in New Jersey.Many of those polled see drug misuse as a moral failing and favor stiffer penalties.Forty-four percent of those surveyed say opioid addiction indicates a lack of willpower or disci-pline, and a third say it is a character flaw. Fifty-five percent favor a crackdownŽ on those who misuse drugs.Those figures worry Baltimore Health Commissioner Leana Wen, who says its counterproductive to blame people for their medical conditions.If somebody is afflicted with heart disease or cancer then everybody brings that person or their family a casserole, but if someone is afflicted with addiction then they dont have the same community sup-port,Ž Wen said.Hurdles to treatment include gaps in health care coverage and social stigma against some forms of therapy, includ-ing methadone.A majority of those surveyed dont think their local community is doing enough to address the problem. Two-thirds said decision-makers should make treatment programs more affordable and accessible.Ramiro Juarez, 48, said he tried quitting heroin more than a dozen times before a doctor recommended the addiction drug Vivitrol, a monthly injection to control opioid addiction.I was trying methadone clinics, I would check myself into the hospital, I would try detox,Ž said Juarez, a Chicago security guard.The federal govern-ment is set to spend $4.6 billion on the opioid recovery effort signed by the president last month, about three times more than the government is currently spending on the epidemic. The funding will primarily go to state and local governments to fund treatment, preven-tion and law enforcement efforts. But critics contend the sum isnt nearly enough to fund the kind of national response needed.Despite government efforts, more Americans are seeing the problem hit close to home. Forty-three percent of Americans say the use of prescription pain drugs is a serious problem in their community, up from 33 percent two years ago. About 37 percent of survey respondents see heroin as a serious concern locally, up from 32 percent in 2016.The AP-NORC poll of 1,054 adults was conducted March 14-19 using a sample drawn from NORCs probability-based AmeriSpeak Panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. Respondents were first selected randomly using address-based sam-pling methods, and later interviewed online or by phone.Most see drug addiction as diseaseA photo of Spenser Flowers as homecoming king at Hampton Township High School in 2014 is surrounded by other photos from his life in a collage at his parents home in Hampton Township, Pa.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 A15By Dave CollinsThe Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. „ As dogs and other ani-mals are increasingly used in courts to comfort and calm prosecution witnesses, a few voices are calling for keeping the practice on a short leash, saying they could bias juries.The use of dogs in courts has spread quickly across the U.S. with a growing number of laws and rulings in its favor „ and, outside the legal world, a significant increase in the use of emotional support animals by the public.There are now more than 155 courthouse facility dogsŽ working in 35 states, compared with 41 dogs in 19 states five years ago, according to the Courthouse Dogs Foundation in Bellevue, Washington. And thats not counting an untold number of emotional support dogsŽ that have been allowed case by case in many states. Many wit-nesses have been child sexual assault victims. There has been a divide among judges, however, with some not allowing dogs because of potential bias against defendants. And many defense lawyers dont like the practice.Having dogs and other emotional support animals in the witness box can illegitimately boost witness credibility and prejudice juries against defendants, Denver defense lawyer Christopher Decker argues. He has unsuccessfully fought the use of dogs in criminal trials several times.I think it distracts the jurors from what their job is, which is to determine the truthfulness of the testimony,Ž Decker said. It tends to imply or infer that there has been some victimization. It tends to engender sympathy. Its highly prejudicial.ŽFacility dogs are trained to provide companionship without disruption in courthouses, prosecu-tors offices and other legal settings. They work at courthouses all day, then go home with their handlers. Emotional support and therapyŽ dogs are pets that can be registered with organizations and may or may not have been specially trained.Proponents say dogs help reduce the anxiety of traumatized victims, especially children, so they can overcome the stress of telling their sto-ries in a deposition room or courtroom.We need to address how traumatizing it is for children to go through this process,Ž said Ellen ONeill-Stephens, a former prosecutor who founded the Courthouse Dogs Foundation. The whole point for me is I want to make it easier for people to engage in this process without suffering additional emotional trauma.ŽAt least eight states have laws allowing the use of dogs to comfort children and other vul-nerable witnesses. Similar proposed laws are pend-ing in at least another four states, while court rulings in a handful of states have set precedents allowing the use of support dogs.Ivy Jacobsen, of Lake Stevens, Washington, said three facility dogs helped her get through the three trials it took before her father was convicted of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager. After two hung juries, he was convicted at the third trial and sentenced to 16 years in prison in 2013.The judge in Jacobsens case did not allow a dog to accompany her on the witness stand during the trials because of objections by the defense. The animals helped her outside the courtroom, she said, during private questioning by defense lawyers, counseling sessions and in courtroom hallways after proceedings.It made it easier to talk knowing he was there,Ž said Jacobsen, now 23 and a police officer, referring to one of the dogs that helped her during a tense deposition. I felt like he was in a way whispering toward me that every-thing was going to be OK. I was 16 or 17 at this time having to talk about very explicit, very uncomfort-able things that I was not willing to say out loud.ŽIts not clear how, or whether, the dogs are affecting juries and ver-dicts because of a lack of research.Studies by research-ers at Wofford College in South Carolina involving mock jurors reviewing real cases have shown dogs have no effect on verdicts or witness cred-ibility. The findings surprised the research-ers, and theyre trying to determine why there is no effect.Comfort pets a court dilemma Ivy Jacobsen, of Lake Stevens, Wash., sits with a facility or comfort dog. She said three facility dogs helped her get through the three trials required before her father was convicted of sexually assaulting her as a teenager. [COURTESY OF IVY JACOBSEN]

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 A17By Patrick WhittleThe Associated PressPORTLAND, Maine „ The harvest of soft-shell clams is dwindling along the coast of New England, where the shellfish are embedded in the culture as much as the tidal muck.Soft-shell clams, also called steamersŽ or longnecks,Ž are one of the northeastern U.S.s most beloved seafood items, delighting shoreside diners in fried clam rolls, clam strips and clam chowders. But the nationwide harvest fell to a little less than 2.8 million pounds (1.2 million kilograms) of meat in 2016, the lowest total since 2000, and there are new signs of decline in Maine.The Pine Tree State produces more of the clams than any other, and state regulators there say clam harvesters collected a little more than 1.4 million pounds (0.64 million kilograms) of the shellfish last year. Thats the lowest total since 1930, and less than half a typical haul in the earlyand mid-1980s.The clam fishery is coping with a declining number of fishermen, a warming ocean, harmful algal blooms in the marine environment and growing populations of predator species, said regulators and scientists who study the fishery. It leaves clammers like Chad Coffin, of Freeport, Maine, concerned the harvest will decline to the point it will be difficult to make a living.It has been a gradual decline, and its getting to the point where theres a tremendous amount of acreage thats not pro-ducing anymore,Ž Coffin said. It should drop significantly more over the next two years.ŽThe clams are still read-ily available to consumers, but the number of harvesters digging for them has slipped to about 1,600 in Maine. It was more than 2,000 as recently as 2015. The clams are also harvested in smaller numbers in Massachusetts, New York and Maryland, and the haul has been more steady in those states in recent years, helping keep prices about the same.The value of Maines clams dipped by nearly $4 million last year, in part due to supply from areas outside the state, the state Department of Marine Resources an nounced in March. Department public health bureau director Kohl Kanwit attributed Maines dimin-ished harvest to clamming closures necessitated by algal blooms that render the shellfish unsafe to eat.Growing numbers of crabs, fish and worms that eat the clams are another problem, said Brian Beal, a professor of marine ecology at the Univer-sity of Maine at Machias. The growth of predators could be tied to rising ocean temperatures in the Gulf of Maine, which is a trend that figures to continue, Beal said.Harvest of clams continues to dwindle in New EnglandIn this June 28 photo, local softshell clams are displayed at a Portland, Maine, “ sh market.

Government St., when it expires in December 2018 because of problems with the building. The court indi-cated if that happened, the Panama City division would be dissolved, which would force locals to travel to either Pensacola or Tallahassee and potentially cost the region 27 direct jobs and 100 indirect ones.The loss initially was pre-sented as a done deal, but for the past year, officials with the Chamber, Bay County, Panama City and the region's federal representation have been lobbying to keep the courthouse in Panama City. Keeping it is a complicated puzzle with a lot of pieces, according tolocal attorney and co-chairman of the the Chamber task force Doug Smith, but in the past few months, two key pieces have fallen into place.First, the task force successfully lobbied for a full-time magistrate position, as a lack of both a full-time judgeand magistrate within the Panama City division was a significant hurdle. Applica-tions for the position were due March 2.Judges remain a shortage throughout the Northwest Region, with only two of four approved spots filled.Second, through the efforts of former Congressman Steve Southerland, who the task force hired as a lobbyist for County working to keep federal courthouse By Collin Breaux747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB CollinB@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY BEACH„ Army veteran Anthony Verra struggled to find his new place in the world after losing his legs to an IED explosion in Afghanistan in 2010.For a long time after the improvised explosive device detonated, the former staff sergeant moved around in a wheelchair, was reserved around other people and didnt do well in big crowds.

One of the two faultytowersis north of U.S. Highway 98 off Bishop Tolbert Road. The other ison Win-dancer Lane.Due to the city replac-ing a water tower, we have had to relocate some of our equipment in Santa Rosa Beach,Ž Montalvo said. We are working to put a temporary cell site nearby to provide additional ser-vice until the relocation work is completed.ŽJane Beal, who lives on Masters Court off Dune Allen Loop, said she has not had cell service since March 21.I have called them from my land line every day and I have gone to the AT&T store, and they keep moving the date back for when we will have service again, and that is unfortunate,Ž she said. We all have been without service for more than three weeks now, and I have made multiple complaints. I am fortunate that I have a land line, but we all depend on our cellphone.I see my neighbors out in their yards holding their phones up in the air trying to get a signal,Ž Beal added. People can ask for a refund, but thats not the point. We went out to eat at Gulf Place the other night and the waiters said that after they get to work, they have no service. This is unacceptable.ŽDebra Cannon, who lives at Gulf Place,switched to AT&T about a month ago. The first week was just OK,Ž she said. But the last three weeks I have had nothing but dropped calls, static and basically no ser-vice at all. My only contact has been a reply that the issues should be corrected by April 5.ŽHowever, Montalvo said servicenot expected to be restored until April 16. An adjustment will be made to customers bills, she said. Brian Wood, who works in Blue Mountain Beach, offered a suggestion.Both my wife and I have AT&T service, which pretty much ceases to work during spring break and the summer when there are a lot of people in town,Ž he said. My cell doesnt work in the gallery, but if I step outside, it works better. They definitely should upgrade their service.ŽAndre Werneck, manager of theAT&T store in Santa Rosa Beach, said fourAT&T towers are being worked on and most of the customers who have called or come in to complain live in the area of Walton County Road 393 and Thompson Road. We dont know what is wrong, but we have turned their LTE data and voice usage off, and that seems to help,Ž Werneck said.AT&T: South Walton cell service back to normal by April 16By Jeff OstrowskiThe Palm Beach PostFloridas most ambitious seller of medical marijuana says the state is unfairly cramping its expansion plans by allow-ing it to open only 25 pot shops statewide.In a suit filed this week in Leon County against the Florida Department of Health, Trulieve said it should be allowed to open a total of 52 retail locations throughout the state.The current arbitrary caps are not just an after-the-fact restriction that was added after we were awarded a license, but they limit our ability to provide safe medical marijuana efficiently to our customers throughout Florida,Ž Trulieve Chief Executive Kim Rivers said Tuesday in a statement. The restrictions force us to use extremely expensive long-distance delivery and build dispensaries on a model based on geographic distribution, not where patients live. This not only restricts access to patients in need but forces higher prices.ŽIn its suit, Tallahasseebased Trulieve says it applied for 27 locations before Florida enacted a law limiting cannabis providers to 25 retail locations statewide.Florida voters in 2016 overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana. The state previously had legal-ized cannabidiol, a form of cannabis used to treat seizures that doesnt make users high, and Trulieve already had been producing and selling cannabis under that regulatory system. Trulieve is one of seven can-nabis growers licensed to sell medical marijuana to Florida patients, and it operates 14 marijuana dispensaries from Miami to Pensacola. Trulieves closest rivals are Knox Medi-cal and Surterra Therapeutics, which run six pot shops each. Trulieves eagerness to open locations is driven in part by strong interest in medical mari-juana among Florida patients. More than 93,000 people had been approved to buy medical marijuana as of Friday, according to the Department of Health.Theres also the matter of building an extensive business in an untested market. In a 2016 interview, Rivers was cagey about how much Trulieve had invested in start-up costs. The company was required to post a $5 million bond to win its state license, and setting up a statewide operation with 30 employees required a significantŽ investment, she said. Trulieve operates an 80,000-square-foot grow house in the Florida Panhandle town of Quincy.Trulieve has signed a lease for space near Woolbright Road and Interstate 95 in Boynton Beach, but that location isnt mentioned in its suit.This case challenges the statutory limitations on the number of dispensing facilities that each Medical Marijuana Treatment Center may operate,Ž the Florida Department of Health said in a statement. We do not yet know how this case will impact our ability to implement that component of the law.ŽTrulieve sues state, aims to open more pot shopsFlorida law limits cannabis providers to 25 retail locations statewide.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage has endorsed the plan, but Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has hesitated to take a public position on it.The rest of the governors are strongly opposed,Ž Zinke said, promising to consider the desire of coastal states when deciding on the drilling plan.Zinke also took note of the growing number of states that are employing state-level laws to thwart the possibility of drilling off their coasts by banning infrastruc-ture that would support drilling in state waters.If local communities dont want it in state waters, the states have a lot of leverage,Ž Zinke said.He said oil and gas production seems to be moving to waters off Latin America where regulations are less strin-gent, and added that oil and gas drilling is more environmentally risky than renewable energy such as wind projects, which he said have the greatest growth potential of all the options in Americas energy menu.Yet Zinke would not commit to giving any state an exemption from the program, and specifically noted that Florida has not been exempted. In January, he said Florida is differentŽ and indicated the state would not be part of the drilling plan.Interior secretary: Opposition to o shore drill planUnited States Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Friday there is a lot of oppositionŽ on the east and west coasts to President Trumps offshore oil and gas drilling plan, but he would not say if he will exempt any state from it.

** B6 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News Herald News Herald Staff ReportPANAMA CITY BEACH „ A family beach vacation almost became a tragedy for a Michigan family Thursday, but thanks to a Bay County Sheriffs Office deputy, the story had a happy ending.BCSO deputies responded Thursday to a drowning call at a Panama City Beach condo, ultimately saving the life of a 6-year-old boy from Michigan.When Deputy Mike Clancy arrived at the regency Towers Condominium about 5 p.m., a bystander had pulled the boy, Jaxon, from the pool. He was unresponsive, and his lips, and skin around his lips, had turned purple.Clancy determined Jaxon had a pulse but was not breathing. He administered two rescue breaths and noticed it appeared the child had a foreign object blocking his airway, so he cleared Jaxons airway with a finger sweep, at which time he began to cough.Jaxon then was taken to a local hospital for addi-tional care and has made a full recovery.Subsequent investiga-tion revealed he had been racing against his brother when he became tired and couldnt swim anymore. Because so many people were in the pool, his brother did not notice when he went under.BCSO deputy saves drowning boy, 6BCSO Deputy Mike Clancy holds up Jaxon, 6, who he resuscitated Thursday after the boy became fatigued while swimming and almost drowned.

** B12 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News Herald BRADENTONHigh school student, admins at odds over lack of braA high-school student who didnt wear a bra one day this week said she was humiliated when school administrators told her to cover her nipples because they were distracting her classmates.The Bradenton Herald reported Friday that 17-year-old Lizzy Martinez decided not to wear a bra under her gray long-sleeve shirt on Monday, and school officials felt she had became a target of other stu-dents stares.Martinez said School Dean Violeta Velazquez called her into the office and said there was a distraction that needed to be addressed. She told me that I needed to put a shirt on under my long-sleeve shirt to try to tighten my breasts „ to constrict them,Ž Martinez said. And then she asked me to move around.ŽApparently the second shirt was not enough, Martinez said, because she was then sent to the nurses office. The nurse handed Martinez four bandages, two to cover each nipple, leaving her in tears. On Thursday afternoon, the school district acknowledged that Braden River school officials could have handled the situa-tion better, but the district said it was only trying to enforce the districts dress code.This matter was brought to the attention of the Superintendents Office for review,Ž the districts general counsel, Mitchell Teitelbaum, said in a prepared statement. It is undisputed that this matter should have been handled dif-ferently at the school level and corrective measures have been taken to prevent a reoccurrence in the way these matters will be addressed in the future.ŽTeitelbaum went on to say Martinez violated the dress code by dressing in a way that distracted other students, and that school officials were only trying to help her fix the violation.You are expected to dress appropriately for school and for the business of learning with proper attention given to per-sonal cleanliness, grooming and neatness,Ž the districts Code of Student Conduct states. The dress code does not spe-cifically address or require bras.PORT ORANGEAuthorities reopen stretch of Interstate 95 after wild“ resThe Florida Highway Patrol on Saturday reopened a major Florida highway after it was closed overnight because of wildfires.

The audit was first reported by Politico Florida.Florida Education Commis-sioner Pam Stewart defended the agency and said auditors had a misunderstandingŽ of the departments process.

And now its us that has to get back into the game.ŽThe Republican Party of Florida has 56 paid employees scattered across the state. But Democrats are using the phrase blue waveŽ to symbolize efforts to capture the governors mansion and Republican seats in Congress and the state Legislature.Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham said in a news release this week that women standing up to gun violence and as part of the #MeToo movement are the driving force behind the 2018 blue wave.ŽMeanwhile, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, a Democrat also running for gover-nor, was slated to attend a blue waveŽ dinner Sat-urday night in Plant City.The 2018 elections will ratchet up Monday, when Gov. Rick Scott is expected to formally announce that he is challenging Nelson for the U.S. Senate seat. Nelson is the only state-wide elected Democrat in Florida, and the outcome of his battle with Scott could help determine which party wins control of the Senate in November.A driving force behind Democratic optimism in this years races has been the policies and personal-ity of Trump.But Trumps actions „ rather than his words and tweets „ are also why Republicans contend they can hold on to the Florida governors office, the three state Cabinet seats, maintain majorities in the Legislature and congres-sional delegation and capture Nelsons seat.You cant argue with results,Ž said Kathleen King, a member of the Republican National Committee. Thanks to a tax cut signed into law ƒ more than 470 compa-nies have announced pay raises, bonuses, utility rate cuts, 401(k) (invest-ment plan) hikes or other expanded benefits.ŽFeaman said, Pay little attention to what the man (Trump) says „ but watch very carefully what the man does.Ž GOPFrom Page B1this project, continued funding for Panama City division was secured in the federal appropria-tions bill.Of pieces to the puz-zles weve been talking about it, funding is a big piece,Ž Smith said. Funding, check.

After searching the vehicle, officers seized 14 ounces of marijuana „ $6,000 worth „ and a loaded 9mm handgun, according to an LHPD report.Passenger Sydney Ana Parrott, 18, admitted to owning the marijuana and firearm, LHPD reported. She also told police the pair was in town for Spring Break.Ali was issued a citation for unlawful speeding and criminally charged with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, a misdemeanor. Parrott was charged with felony posses-sion of more than 20 grams of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.Both Ali and Parrott were taken to the Bay County Jail to await first appearance.TALLAHASSEEP.C. farmer drops lawsuit over medical marijuana licenseAfter Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill last week that resolved the case, a Panama City farmer has dropped a constitutional challenge to a 2017 law that included crite-ria for awarding a potentially lucrative medical-marijuana license to a black farmer.Attorneys for Columbus Smith filed a notice Tuesday in Leon County Circuit Court that they were dismissing the lawsuit.The 2017 law required one medical-marijuana license to go to a black farmer who had been part of settled lawsuits, known as PigfordŽ cases, about discrimination against black farmers by the federal government. The measure also required the black farmer who received a license to be a member of the Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Associa-tion-Florida Chapter.Smith met the qualification of being part of the Pigford litigation, but he was not allowed to join the black farmers association, effectively preventing him from receiving a license. The Florida Constitution bars specialŽ laws, in part, that relate to grant of privilege to a private corporation.ŽThe lawsuit alleged the narrow criteria for awarding a marijuana license to a black farmer violated that part of the Constitution. Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson in January granted a temporary injunc-tion requested by Smith. But lawmakers during this years legislative session approved a bill (HB 6049) that removed the requirement that farmers be members of the association to qualify for a marijuana license. Scott signed the bill Friday.HOLMES COUNTYHolmes County boy arrested after school bomb threatAn 11-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with making a bomb threat at Bethlehem School. The Holmes County Sher-iffs Office responded to the school Friday, along with bomb detection dogs from the Bay County Sheriffs Office and Dothan (Ala.)

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 B19Terry SpencerThe Associated PressPLANTATION „ A student gravely wounded while saving his classmates lives by blocking a door during the Florida school massacre said Friday that the county sheriff and school super-intendent failed the victims by not arresting the shooter before the attack and by allowing him to attend the school.An attorney for 15-year-old Anthony Borges read a statement from him during a news conference criticizing Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and Superin-tendent Robert Runcie for the Feb. 14 mass shoot-ing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that killed 14 students and three staff members.Borges was shot five times, suffering wounds to the lungs, abdomen and legs. He was released from a Fort Lauderdale hospital Wednesday morning, the last of the 17 wounded to go home.Borges, too weak to talk, sat silently in a wheelchair with his right leg propped up. His statement specifically attacked the Promise program, a school district and sheriff office initiative that allows students who commit minor crimes on campus to avoid arrest if they complete rehabilitation. Runcie has said shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz, a former Stoneman Doug-las student, was never in the program, but Borges and his attorney, Alex Arreaza, said school and sheriffs officials knew Cruz was dangerous.Deputies received at least a dozen calls about Cruz, 19, over the years and he spent two years in a school for children with emotional and disciplin-ary problems before being allowed to transfer to Stoneman Douglas. Last year, records show, he was forced to leave after incidents „ other students said he abused an ex-girlfriend and fought her new boyfriend. Weeks before the shoot-ing, both the FBI and the sheriffs office received calls saying Cruz could become a school shooter but took no action.Runcie and Israel failed us students, teachers and parents alike on so many levels,Ž Arreaza read for Borges, who sat next to his father, Roger. I want all of us to move forward to end the environment that allowed people like Nikolas Cruz to fall through the cracks. You knew he was a prob-lem years ago and you did nothing. He should have never been in school with us.Ž Arreaza said the family supports the efforts by Stoneman Douglas stu-dents David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez and others to end gun violence but might not always agree with their methods. Borges is a U.S. citizen born to Venezuelan immigrants.Arreaza said although Borges father, a maintenance worker, appreciates that people consider his son a hero for protecting classmates, he believes such talk detracts from the serious message that action must be taken to stop school shootings.He doesnt want there to be anymore bubblegum hero stuff,Ž Arreaza said.Anthony Borges visited Stoneman Douglas for the first time since the shoot-ing Thursday but said in his statement that he is scared to return, fearing there could be more violence.More than $830,000 has been raised for him in online donations, but Arreaza said his medi-cal bills likely will exceed $1.5 million. The family plans to file a lawsuit soon against Cruz, the estate of his late mother and a family that housed him before the shooting. Under state law, the family cant sue the school district and sheriffs office until a six-month waiting period expires in August.The sheriffs office and school district did not return after-hours calls and emails Friday seek-ing comment.Shot Parkland student blames sheri superintendentAnthony Borges, 15, who was shot multiple times on Feb. 14 in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, sits next to his father, Roger Borges, left, during a news conference Friday.

Thanks to some hot-shooting from Holmes Countys Laura Jones and a couple of late buckets by Mosleys JaTayvia Holley, thats exactly what the East All-Stars did.Jones, who was named the East Most Valuable Player, scored 23 points and Holley added 21 to lift the East to a 100-94 victory to snap a two-game losing skid to the West All-Stars in the 14th edition of the Classic. Port St. Joes Teiyahna Hutchinson added 20 points for East, with North Bay Havens Josselin Geer also scoring 13.Fort Walton Beachs P-Nut Payton led all scorers with 27 points and was named the MVP for the West team.

The East used a 14-2 run to start the second quarter to seize early control of the game, with a driving bank shot by Holley followed by 3-pointers from Hutchinson, Ponce de Leons Devyn Butorac, and Poplar Springs Robin Tate making it 34-20 with 6:40 on the clock.But the West answered Jones, Holley spearhead East All-Stars victoryBy Dustin Kent747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent dkent@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ Through nearly 35 minutes of Saturdays All-Star Basketball Classic, the West boys AllStars looked poised to make it two straight wins for the first time in the 14-year his-tory of the series. In the final five minutes, however, the East All-Stars turned up the pressure and the wheels for the West quickly fell off the wagon.The East outscored the West 24-6 over the final 5:12 of action to rally for a 99-96 victory. Its the seventh win in the last eight years for the East All-Stars, who saw a six-game winning streak snapped last year when the West took a 104-93 victory.Rutherfords Lorenzo Fer-rell scored 19 points and grabbed the East All-Stars Most Valuable Player award, while Blountstowns KK Godwin added 17 points. Rutherfords Trevon Sims added 15 points, and Mosleys Stacy Burse had 14. Choc-tawhatchees Aron Scott led all scorers with 30 points and earned the West All-Stars MVP. His teammate Mar-quis Jackson added 22 points, while Nicevilles Juanyeh Thomas had 12, and Choc-taws Stacey Jones scored 11. The game was nip and tuck through much of the first half before a 15-2 run allowed the West to take control, with Scott contributing 13 of the 15 points. Scott started the run with a two-handed tip dunk, then added a 3-pointer, and a transition dunk plus the foul for a three-point play. He later caught a lob pass from Jackson for another dunk and nailed another three to make it 38-27.The East answered with a pair of baskets by Blount-stowns Jamal Howard and a Frantic nish gives East boys 9996 win Holmes Countys Laura Jones (11) scored 23 points to lead the East All-Stars to a 100-94 victory in Saturdays All-Star Basketball Classic.

A tip-in by Rutherfords Eddie Dubose and a reverse layup by Burse to start the second half cut the West deficit to six, but a three from Jones, a tip dunk by Scott, and a pull-up jumper by Nicevilles Trey GreenHarris quickly put the West back up double figures at 56-45.Scott continued to have his way with the East defense, hitting a short jumper, a hook shot in the lane, and then finishing a three-point play in the paint to make it 63-51. A corner three from Fort Walton Beachs Nikko Bryant moments later put the West up 15 with 13:55 to play.The West lead remained at 15 after a driving basket by Jackson made it 90-75 with 5:30 to play, but the Easts depth advantage … 12 players to just eight for the West … and the full-court defensive pressure that exploited it, quickly started to turn the tide toward the East. Burse started the decisive run with a basket, followed by a transition dunk by Ferrell, and a bucket by Antonio Bellamy follow-ing a West turnover to cut the deficit to nine.A driving basket by Godwin was followed by four straight points from Ferrell, the first two on a lob pass from a baseline out of bounds play and the second two on a pair of free throws, made it a five-point game with 3:08 to go. The East press forced another turnover that resulted in a layup by Sims to make it 92-89 moments later.Trailing 94-90, the East got another steal that led to a short bank shot by Ferrell, and a steal and layup in the back-court by Godwin tied the game 94-94 with 1:04 on the clock. After a missed 3-pointer by Jones, Burse hit a pair of free throws to give the East the lead before a spin-ning jumper by Scott tied it back up with 35 seconds remaining.Sims split a pair of free throws with 31.5 seconds on the clock to put the East up 97-96, and Godwin came up with yet another steal on the Wests next possession and passed ahead to Ferrell for a breakaway dunk with 11 seconds to play. The West turned the ball over yet again on the last possession and was unable to get a shot up.Godwin and Ferrell combined for 29 points in the second half, with Godwin scoring 15 and Ferrell 14.

BOYSFrom Page C1right back with a 16-3 run to pull to within a point. Payton started the run with a basket and a three-point play by Tassin, a two-point jumper by Aaliyah Dav-enport, and a layup by Payton trimmed the deficit to five. Kori Jones stopped the spurt with a 3-pointer from the right wing, but a flip shot in the lane by Gen-esis Long, a 3-pointer by Tassin, and a free throw by Payton made it 37-36 with 1:41 to half.Hutchinson finished the quarter strong with a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws to give the East a 42-38 edge at the break. The East started lighting it up from 3-point range again when the second half began, with a triple from Laura Jones sandwiched between a pair of Holley threes making it 53-40. After an offensive rebound and putback by Geer, Bozemans Shelby Suggs hit another 3-pointer for the East and followed with a short jumper to make it 60-45 with 6:13 left in the third.A transition basket by Hutchinson on a feed from Laura Jones gave the East its biggest lead of the day at 68-52 with 3:03 to play, but the West again fought back with a 13-2 run to get back to within five. Payton started the spurt with a 3-pointer and Tassin followed with back to back threes of her own. The East pushed the lead back to nine when Holley finished the third with a driving floater and then drove into the lane and dished off to Geer for two.Another three from Laura Jones to start the fourth quarter made it 77-65, but the West countered with a 10-2 run featuring six straight points by Payton, the last on a short jumper, to get back to within four. A basket by South Wal-tons Allee Coble and a 3-pointer from Bakers Kashira Casey brought the West even at 89-89 with 3:37 remaining.With the game tied 91-91, Holley put the East up for good with a steal and layup with 2:15 to play, and then hit a free throw and a driving basket with 57 seconds remaining to make it 96-91. After a defensive stop, Hutchinson hit a pair of free throws to essentially ice the game at 98-91 with 38.3 sec-onds on the clock.

He was the pole sitter and led 132 of 200 laps on an unseasonably chilly Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. You never want to be the person who breaks the streak of wins, especially when a cars been so fast,Ž Blaney said. There was that reminder in the back of my head to try to get this one.ŽEspecially from the drivers that won the previous two before the Xfinity Series had a two-week break. Joey Logano won in the No. 22 car at California, a week after Brad Keselowski went to Victory Lane in Phoenix.ORLANDO, FLA.Spurrier hired as Alliance leagues “ rst head coachSteve Spurrier plans to be back on the sideline if a proposed new profes-sional league gets off the ground.The Orlando Alliance announced Saturday that it has hired Spurrier as its first head coach. Spurrier will coach in the planned Alliance of American Football.The Alliance is the cre-ation of Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian and longtime TV and film producer Charlie Ebersol. The league plans to have eight teams and will play a 12-week season Feb. 9, 2019, and will be broadcast on CBS.Orlando is the first planned team site, and Spurrier is the first coach.The 72-year-old Spurrier says hes fired up and ready to go.ŽOrlando has never had much success with startup football leagues.WASHINGTONMontero on paternity leave; LHP Romero DFAThe Washington Nationals have put catcher Miguel Montero on the paternity list and designated left-handed reliever Enny Romero for assignment.Montero has been starting while Matt Wieters is on the disabled list. So thirdstringer Pedro Severino moved into the lineup against the New York Mets on Saturday, while Jhonatan Solanos contract was selected from Triple-A Syracuse so he can serve as the backup catcher.In another move, the Nationals recalled util-ity player Matt Reynolds from Syracuse, giving them an additional player on the bench.Romero appeared in two games this season for the Nationals, allowing three runs over two innings for a 13.50 ERA. In 55 appear-ances for Washington since the beginning of 2017, he was 2-4 with two saves and a 3.90 ERA. The Associated Press By Michael MarotThe Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS „ Basketball Hall of Famers George Gervin and George McGinnis see a lot of their old league in todays NBA.Their former team-mates notice it, too.Five decades ago, they were the guys running the floor, embracing the 3-pointers and wel-coming underclassmen. They understood the entertainment value of high-scoring games, dunk contests and half-time shows. They valued rivalries, camaraderie and the sense everyone in the sport was work-ing toward a single goal.Today the business model first adopted by the American Basketball Association has largely become the standard operating procedure for the worlds biggest basketball league.When the merger happened, we knew the NBA was going to have a strong foundation,Ž Gervin said Saturday in Indianapolis. People talk about how Magic (Johnson) and (Larry) Bird saved the NBA. I think its ludicrous because we gave the NBA an infusion of excitement that made the league fun again.ŽJust about any player in town for the leagues 50-year reunion knows the truth.Aside from the leagues trademark red, white and blue basketball that served as a center piece for the dinner, just about every-thing else the league innovated with has eventually made its way to its rival league.Some of it was borne out of necessity.Most ABA teams lacked the size or the star power of the more established NBA, so they relied on tempo, showmanship and pizazz to attract fans. Gervin earned the nick-name IcemanŽ in San Antonio. Julius Erving became better known as Dr. J.ŽPlayoff series got nick-names, too, and there were times the backstories seemed as every bit as wild as the social culture of the 1960s and 1970s.The league had to have an identity,Ž Gervin said. You call it wild. I call it fun.Ž The biggest secret was that amid all the fanfare, there was some darn good basketball being played.Numerous former ABA stars including Erving, Rick Barry, Moses Malone have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. So has Spencer Haywood, one of the sports most important pioneers.Haywood became the first underclassmen to declare he was leaving school after his sophomore season at the University of Detroit and was shunned by the NBA, prompting a Supreme Court case Haywood would eventually win in 1971.Former ABA players see similarities in todays pro game Kurt Busch reaches into his car in the garage area during a practice session for a NASCAR Cup series auto race, Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas. [LARRY PAPKE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Stephen HawkinsThe Associated PressFORT WORTH, Texas „ Kurt Busch is on the pole, Clint Bowyer is coming off his first victory in six years and Kevin Harvick has won half of the races so far on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule.Aric Almirola, the newcomer to the team, has been steady, too, finishing 14th or better in every race.With Stewart-Haas Racing already off to a sensational start this season, the decade-old team will now have the top three starters in a race for the first time Sunday. Busch, Harvick and Bowyer qualified their Fords 1-2-3 at Texas Motor Speedway, while Almirola was 12th at the 1-mile track.We unloaded off the truck here and went right back to the top of the board. That is pretty cool,Ž said Bowyer, whose victory at Martinsville before the Easter break ended his 190-race winless streak.It is crazy how you can get your cars with a good balance on them and really roll them through the corners good,Ž he said. It seems if they are fast at one track they are going to be fast at the next.Ž All four Stewart-Haas cars are in the top 11 in season points through the first six races. Harvick is seventh, followed by Bowyer at eighth, Busch 10th and Almirola 11th.Hendrick Motorsports also has all four of its drivers in the top 20. But Alex Bowman, Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott and William Byron are all below the Stewart-Haas drivers in the standings.Busch is the first three-time Cup pole sitter in Texas, where he and Harvick will make their track-record 31st starts. TMS, which opened in 1997, is hosting its 35th race. Both have one win there.When asked why Stewart-Haas is having so much success this season, Busch was admittedly biased in his assessment. Tony Gibson, his former crew chief includ-ing for the 2017 Daytona 500 win, is now off the road in what the driver calls a perfect roleŽ for Gibson, who is involved in building the cars for all four teams.If you go ask him now, he will say it is all about the people and process around him,Ž Busch said. But he has found some good people, rearranged them into differ-ent positions and I think that our team is doing a really good job of creating continuity between the four cars.ŽHarvick won at Texas last November, and this season has won the only two races on 1-mile tracks at Atlanta and Las Vegas, during his three-race winning streak.This is only Stewart-Haas Racings second season with Ford, after the team switched from Chevrolet.When you see what Stewart-Haas Racing has done with Ford, we still havent reached the potential of where we can be,Ž Harvick said. We have, in my opinion, the most stable team in the garage. When you have the most stable team in the garage from a financial standpoint and manufacturer standpoint, that attracts good people. ... We are the drivers lucky enough to be in a position of where Stewart-Haas racing is right now. We have a very solid foundation.ŽThree-time Cup champion Tony Stewart was still driving with Joe Gibbs Racing in 2008 when he announced he would join forces with Cup owner Gene Haas to form Stewart-Haas Racing. The team made its debut in 2009 and is in its 10th season, marking 1,000 starts in the top series when all four drivers take the green flag in Texas. Bowyer describes the team as feeling like family and at ease. He believes Stewart-Haas is even more stable now than it was when he joined last year.Everybody had the confidence in a champion going over there,Ž Bowyer said, when asked if that stability was a credit to Stewart. You cant leave out the boss, Gene Haas. Everybody knows that he steps up whenever needed. The conversation with Gene is: When are you going to win? How are going to win? What do you need to win more? Its never anything about anything other than that.ŽSensational start for Stewart-HaasClint Bowyer smiles as he walks away smiling after talking with Kevin Harvick, in car, in the garage area before practice for a NASCAR Cup series auto race Friday in Fort Wort. [LARRY PAPKE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]Kevin Harvick walks through the garage area as members of his team make adjustments to his car after a practice session, Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas. Through six races, Harvick currently stands in seventh place in season points. He won at Texas last November. [TONY GUTIERREZ/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 C5By David LeeThe Augusta Chronicle A soggy Saturday failed to bog down the Patrick Reed machine.On a day full of off and on rain showers, Reeds game was much more consistent. Another day of attacking Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tourna-ment field has him in the final Sunday pairing.Reed carded 5-under-par 67 in the third round to maintain his lead at 14-under entering the final day of the Masters. A day after shooting 66 with three spurts of three consecu-tive birdies, the 27-year-old Augusta State product, who played Augusta National with his teammates during his All-American college days, produced two eagles and four birdies to sit three strokes ahead of Rory McIlroy.Any time you can come out and have the lead going into Sunday youre always going to be excited, but play-ing with Rory and being side by side is going to be fun,Ž Reed said.Another day in the 60s means Reed is one round away from all four rounds under 70, something thats never been done in the Masters. He entered this years tournament without a score under 70 in 12 Masters rounds.After a bogey on 3, Reed bounced back with a birdie on 5 on a 19-foot putt. A birdie on 8 sparked a threehole stretch of birdies that included a 25-foot putt on 9.A bogey on 12 was backed by an eagle on 13 when he drained a 14-foot putt, and he did the same on 15, this time from off the green with a chip from the front right side.The conditions, which produced softened greens compared to the first two days, caused Reed to have to adjust, especially on his putts. He had three more putts compared to Friday but hit two more greens and remained consistent throughout his game.The impact of Reeds round rippled down the leaderboard, as low rounds took on a sense of desperation to keep up. That included McIlroy, who shot 65 to finish 11-under and join Reed in the final pairing.McIlroy went bogey free with five birdies and an eagle. A combination of clutch iron play and long putts, capped by a dramatic 17-foot birdie putt on 18 that drew a fist pump, kept McIlroy just behind Reed and well within striking distance. Going for the career Grand Slam, the 28-year-old McIl-roy nearly holed out on the par-3 sixth before holing a 32-yard pitch for eagle on 8. He drained long birdie putts on 3, 4 and 15 before doing the same on 18 to end his round with momentum.I have the chance to win another major, so Im excited,Ž McIlroy said. You cant ask for much more. Ive been waiting for this chance, to be honest.ŽRickie Fowler and Jon Rahm matched McIlroy for low round of the day at 65, yet Fowler is in third at 9-under, five shots back of Reed, and Rahm is in fourth at 8-under, six strokes back.Steady Reed maintains the lead at MastersPatrick Reed celebrates an eagle on the 15th hole during the third round of the Masters Tournament on Saturday at Augusta National Golf Club, in Augusta, Ga. [NIGEL COOK/THE AUGUSTA CHRONICLE] By Stephen WhynoThe Associated PressBeing healthy in the play-offs is taking priority over seeding, with a few teams sitting their top players Sat-urday in the final game of the regular season.MVP front-runner Taylor Hall will sit out the New Jersey Devils regular-season finale after the team clinched a playoff spot but can still move up the standings.New Jersey is resting Hall, fellow forwards Kyle Palm-ieri and Travis Zajac, and defenseman Sami Vatanen in Game 82 at Washington, and it isnt alone in taking precautions. The Columbus Blue Jackets wont play stars Artemi Panarin, Seth Jones, Zach Werenski and two-time Vezina Trophywinning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky in their final regular-season game at Nashville.Columbus coach John Tortorella told reporters he was absolutely notŽ trying to avoid facing the twotime defending Stanley Cup-champion Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. New Jersey coach John Hynes similarly answered that giving Hall a break is more important after a grueling push to clinch the franchises first playoff berth since 2012.Were not looking to get in the playoffs and just be a Cinderella story,Ž Hynes said before his Devils faced the Metropolitan Division-champion Capitals on Saturday night. Were looking to get in the playoffs and win, and (Hall is) a big part of that.ŽHall, who is one goal short of reaching 40 for the first time in his career, said hes cool with the decision to rest instead of taking a chance on the eve of the playoffs.Its a good time to get some rest and recuperate a little bit,Ž said Hall, who has 93 points in 76 games and is expected to be a finalist for the Hart Trophy. Weve played a lot of hockey lately, and a lot of the stuff in the standings is out of our hands other than our game.ŽNo Eastern Conference first-round matchups have been determined going into the final weekend of the season. The only series thats set is the Winnipeg Jets facing the Minnesota Wild out West as the secondand third-place teams in the Central Division.There are still numerous combinations of matchups among the seven teams in the East that have clinched, with the Philadelphia Flyers and Florida Panthers still in the running for the final spot. Matchups can make a big difference in how the playoffs go, but players and coaches are careful not to look like theyre favoring one opponent over another.I learned a long time ago that you dont wish for certain opponents,Ž Devils defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. It can backfire very quickly.ŽThe Tampa Bay Light-ning certainly arent playing that game. With a chance to clinch first place in the Atlantic Division and avoid facing the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round, the Lightning are expected to start backup Louis Domingue in net at Carolina instead of Andrei Vasilevskiy, who leads the NHL in wins.Devils, Blue Jackets sit top players for rest in Game 82Toronto goaltender Frederik Andersen, left, blocks a shot by New Jersey left wing Taylor Hall during the second period of Thursdays game in Newark, N.J. [JULIO CORTEZ/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Robbie AndreuGainesville SunDuring the uncertainty of his suspension and his season away from the game, Florida running back Jordan Scarlett seriously considered moving on and entering the NFL draft this spring.But something inside told him he needed to stay.His urge to return and atone for his wrong overwhelmed any thoughts he had about professional football.Hed let his teammates down once. He wasnt going to do it again.I just felt like I had a lot of unfinished business here, and I owe my team a lot from last year, so I decided to come back, give them everything Ive got,Ž Scarlett said after Fri-days practice. I said it would be better if I go finish school, graduate and get to have one more season with my guys.Theyll get 110 percent out of me. And go Gators because Ill be fighting to the end.ŽHad last season played out like Scarlett had planned, maybe he would be getting himself ready for the draft right now.Heading into last seasons opener, the consensus was that Scarlett likely was on the brink of having a breakout season after establishing himself as the starter in the second half of the 2016 season.But that season never happened.Early in the week of the Michigan game, the stunning news broke that Scarlett and wide receiver Rick Wells had been suspended indefinitely for possible credit card fraud, joining seven other teammates who had been suspended ear-lier in the summer for the same reason.The Scarlett news hit hard, especially with the timing of it.Yeah, it shocked me,Ž he said. But things happen.ŽIt not only shocked his team-mates, it also seemed to deflate them.I let them down,Ž Scarlett said. Going into that Michigan week I got pulled out and I know it shocked a lot of the guys because we had a lot in the game plan that revolved around me. I feel like, yeah, I have a lot to prove to those guys. Im going to help them out this year.ŽOne of the most difficult aspects of Scarletts suspension was that he had no idea how long it would last, or if it would even ever end.So, he kept working out, kept waiting, kept spending his Saturdays in front of the television watching his teammates struggle through a 4-7 season that would lead to the dismissal of Jim McElwain and the coaching staff.I wasnt sure if I was going to come back any week, so I was working out constantly, stay-ing on top of things, on top of my workouts,Ž he said. I was prepared just for the whole season. I worked out every day and sometimes twice a day because I didnt have much to do. I was staying prepared if I got that call to come back.Ž The waiting and uncertainty never ended last fall. Week after week, it was more of the same for Scarlett. Even after Scarlett and six of the others received pre-trial intervention in late October that would see the charges against them dropped if they met the requirements of the intervention, the indefinite suspension continued.Scarlett and three others„ Wells, linebacker Ventrell Miller and lineback James Houston„ did not learn until late January that they had been cleared by the university and new coach Dan Mullen to return to the team.It was very difficult, a tough time for me consider-ing how much I care about and love football,Ž Scarlett said. It was a time for me to sit back and reflect on life. It was a big learning lesson, also.I just learned that I cant take the game for granted. I realized in that whole time I was obviously taking it for granted when I made that mistake. I will never do it again.In the beginning it was really stressful because I really wasnt sure what was going to happen and how the consequences were going to play out. Thankfully, God blessed me and has me standing here today.ŽHeading into last season, Scarlett set a personal a goal of rushing for 1,000 yards. Hell have the same goal this season, but it might be tougher to attain because hes been out of the game for a season and the UF backfield appears deeper and more talented than when he left.That is a goal for me, but Im also trying to do whatever it takes to get my team to advance to the SEC Championship and hopefully national champion-ship,Ž he said.This spring Scarlett is com-peting for the starting role with Lamical Perine, Adarius Lemons and true freshmen Dameon Pierce and Iverson Clement.Scarlett said hes not sure what the playing rotation at running back will be in the fall.We have a lot of guys who can run the ball well that are physically capable of making guys miss,Ž he said. Weve got Malik Davis coming back, so its going to be a great season. I dont know these coaches too well. I dont know how they do their game prep and how they do their reps. But Ive bought into the system and Im willing to do whatever the coaches want.ŽScarlett is happy to be back, and grateful hes been given a second chance.Un nished businessUF running back Scarlett seeks redemptionUniversity of Florida running back Jordan Scarlett (25) breaks a tackle at practice in March.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 C7wouldnt be as big as the girls, but yesterday it was bigger than one of the girls crowds,Ž Green said Saturday as the boys state championships was winding down.We did have one thing different with an injury that required medical assistance and with a doctor and three trainers here I thought we handled that.ŽGreen said that Arnold parked about 300 cars on Friday, which meant a $3,000 benefit to the schools general fund for athletics. Another 200 cars was expected on Saturday, for a surplus of $5,000 for the weekend, not counting revenue from concession minus other operational expenditures.Arnold has a two-year contract with the Florida High School Athletics Association to stage the weightlifting finals at a site not accustomed to drawing high schools from around the state to compete.Green didnt discount that the FHSAA might want to come back to the Panhandle after that commitment expires.I think they enjoyed bringing it up here,Ž Green said. Enjoyed our facilities, and the fact we had 50 volunteers helping us put it together.ŽFive state records were equaled or surpassed during the competitions, that began with the 1A finals on Friday.It concluded with Port Charlotte heavyweight Devin Leacock setting new standards for the clean and jerk at 410 pounds and total weight at 880, destroying the latter mark by 60 pounds.One of the records tied eearlier was by New Smyrna senior Josh Hib-bard at 139 poundsin the bench press.Hibbard fashioned a two-week-old tattoo that read I will never accept defeatŽ high on his left arm.The senior said he is shipping out with the U.S. Army in July, thus the tattoo.Its the soldiers creed, and the helmet represents a warrior,Ž Hibbard said.I want another challenge, and the military will give me that challenge.ŽHe didnt have to worry about that on Saturday as he not only won his second state title, he tied the state record established in 2003 at 325 pounds in the bench press.It was easy to balance which achievement had the biggest impact on him. Hibbard was a state champion at 129 last year and placed a close second at 119 as a sophomore.The state record,Ž Hibbard said emphati-cally. It was my goal last year and I unofficially tied it at region.I wound up smoking 325, but that still was a good way to end.ŽIt also was a good way to finish two successful days of competition at Arnold High School. 119 „ Not available. 129 „ 1.

MEETFrom Page C1 The Associated PressLOS ANGELES „ After four games with their defense leading the way, the Denver Nuggets turned to their offense Saturday and regained control of their playoff destiny. The Nuggets made 10 of their first 12 shots and they ran off to a 134-115 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.They will reach the post-season if they win their last two games.At this time of the year, its all about finding a way to get wins,Ž Nuggets coach Mike Malone said. Were playing Get-It-Done basketball. Were getting it done. Going into tonight, wed been playing good defense. We controlled the game, won all four quarters, another big step in the right direction.ŽWill Barton scored 31 points and Nikola Jokic added 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists as the Nuggets posted their fifth straight win to pull into a tie with the Minnesota Timberwolves for eighth place in the Western Conference with two games to play. Both teams are 45-35.The Nuggets finish the regular season at home against Portland on Monday night.I think overall „ offensively, defensively, controlling our turnovers, I think were playing over-all our best basketball,Ž Paul Millsap said. Not our best offense weve played all year, not necessarily our best defense, but to be a good team you have to have balance.ŽIt all sets up for the Nuggets season-ending game against the Timber-wolves in Minneapolis on Wednesday night. Minnesota, which holds the tiebreaker over the Nuggets, hosts Memphis on Monday night.Our guys have really taken that to heart,Ž Malone said. Theres a belief in that locker room, a lot of positivity. I think were all in, 100 percent, believing in each other.ŽMeanwhile, the injuryriddled Clippers were eliminated from the play-off race. The Clippers suffered their fourth loss in five games, falling to 42-38, 2 games out of eighth place with two to play. The elimination ends a run of six consecutive postseason appearances for the Clippers, who pre-viously missed the playoffs in 2010-11.I dont think I have been more proud of a group, maybe ever, than I have been of this group,Ž said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who has been forced by injuries to field 35 starting lineups. We have asked a lot of guys to do a lot of stuff they should not have had to do and yet they did it.Ž BUCKS 115, KNICKS 102: Eric Bledsoe had 22 points and 10 assists, and the Milwaukee Bucks moved into a tie for sixth place in the Eastern Conference with a 115-102 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday night. Khris Middleton also scored 22 points for the Bucks, who joined Miami with a 43-37 record. The Heat were blown out by the Knicks at Madison Square Garden a night earlier but the Bucks avoided the same fate despite playing without All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo because of a sore right ankle. Jabari Parker made his second start of the season in Antetokounmpos place and “ nished with 16 points and 12 rebounds. John Henson had 15 points and 12 boards for the Bucks, who hoped to get point guard Malcolm Brogdon back but will have to wait a little longer.Nuggets eliminate Clippers from contention with routBy Beth HarrisThe Associated PressARCADIA, Calif. „ Justify vaulted into the role of probable Kentucky Derby favorite with a three-length victory over Bolt dOro in the $1 million Santa Anita Derby on Saturday.Trained by Bob Baffert and winner of his three career starts by a combined 19 lengths, Justify had to finish first or second to earn enough qualifying points to run in the Derby on May 5. It wasnt a problem.Justify led all the way under Mike Smith to claim the 100 points toward qualifying for the 20-horse Run for the Roses, and stands eighth on the Derby leaderboard. The colt ran 1 ‡ miles in 1:49.72 and paid $3.80, $2.20 and $2.10 as the 3-5 favorite in the field of seven.What youre seeing right now is really just raw talent,Ž Smith said. Hes got so much room to grow and to even get better. If he moves for-ward off this race, which he should, then its even kind of scary to talk about.ŽBaffert earned his record eighth Santa Anita Derby victory. It was Justifys first stakes race.Bolt dOro returned $2.20 and $2.10, while Core Beliefs was another 6 lengths back in third and paid $4 to show.Bolt dOro and Javier Castellano chased Justify into the stretch turn. Castellano moved his colt down toward the rail and they ranged up on Justifys flank, but never seriously threatened. Justify continued to pull away approach-ing the finish line.He felt good, and did everything the right way,Ž Castellano said. Unfortunately, we were running against the best horse in the country.ŽJustify never raced as a 2-year-old and didnt make his debut until Feb. 18 at Santa Anita. He won by 9 lengths and followed up that dominant showing with a 6-length victory on March 1.Baffert has com-pared Justify to his 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, citing the colts impos-ing physical presence and his big stride. Justify is just a natu-ral and hes just learning how to run,Ž Baffert said. Hes quick and hes light on his feet.ŽBolt dOro already was assured of a spot in the Kentucky Derby starting gate and stands fifth on the leader-board with 104 points. He won the San Felipe by disqualification on March 10 and won 3 of 4 starts as a 2-year-old last year.Justify captures Santa Anita Derby for Ba ertJustify, ridden by Mike Smith, crosses the “ nish line to win the Santa Anita Derby on Saturday at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif.

** C8 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News Herald A LOOK AT GOLFS PREMIER EVENT € ROUND 3 RECAPPowered by THE MASTERS MASTERS NOTES Fleetwood binge gets him in top 10On a day of low scores and astounding shot-making Sat-urday at Augusta National Golf Club, Englands Tommy Fleetwood got the party started.The Englishman reeled off five consecutive birdies on the back nine of his third round, vaulting into the top 10 of the 82nd Masters Tournament with a 6-under-par 66.Today, it was just about doing the best I could,Ž he said. First weekend Ive ever played at Augusta, I wasnt thinking about the lead. Clearly I got a lot closer and it was nice to play those last few holes with adrenaline.ŽFleetwood was at 2 under for his day entering the 12th hole, where a 25-footer kick-started the day. He reached both back-nine par 5s in two shots and two-putted, then hit irons to 2 and 7 feet on Nos. 14 and 16.Around that corner, when you get to 14, 15, 16, the atmosphere is always very good there and the noise is up,Ž he said, and it was nice to be getting something going around there.Ž Just hanging onTony Finaus memorable Masters will continue Sunday after he recovered from a slow start in Round 3.The Masters rookie, now famous for his celebration and injury during the Par 3 Contest, made four consecu-tive bogeys on the front nine to slide out of title contention, but found his groove on the back nine. He made seven pars and two birdies to close in 34 for a 1-over 73 and 1-under 215 total. Hes tied for 15th. Early stumblesFan favorites Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson hoped to create some magic from the early pairings Saturday. Both were deflated by the time they reached the third tee.Woods bogeyed both the first and second holes. Mick-elson had it worse, hooking his first tee shot into the trees, whiffing on his second shot and taking a triple bogey on No. 1.Both recovered „ Woods shot even-par 72, Mickelson had 73 „ but theyll remain recipients of polite applause at the end of the day Sunday. Mickelson tees off at 10:20 a.m. with Chez Reavie; Woods is paired with Rafa Cabrera Bello at 11:10 a.m. Numbers to KnowThe total prize money for this years tournament is $11 million. The winner takes home the green jacket, all the hardware and a check for $1.98 million.Players that finish in the top 12 (and ties) at this years Masters automatically qualify for the 2019 tournament.Sundays weather for the final groups is expected to be dry, with temperatures in the high 50s to low 60s and calm winds. GateHouse Media Aces high on No. 16 at AugustaThe list The Masters is well-known for its Sunday drama, and the CBS announcers are usually up to the task as they call the action. Here are some of the best-known calls in the “ nal round, in chronological order: Jim McKay, 1960: Defending champion Art Wall Jr. joins the broadcaster beside the 18th green as Arnold Palmer hits his approach to four feet. When Palmer makes the winning putt, McKay excitedly announces, Arnold Palmer is the Masters champion of 1960!Ž Ben Wright and Henry Longhurst, 1975: With Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Johnny Miller battling for the green jacket, Wright and Longhurst produce a legendary exchange. Weiskopf birdies the 15th, and Wright says, That is evil music ringing in Nicklaus ears.Ž But when Nicklaus responds with a 40-foot birdie putt at the 16th, Longhurst says, That has to be the greatest putt I ever saw in my life. And now Weiskopf will have to take it as he dished it out before.Ž Verne Lundquist, 1986: When 46-year-old Jack Nicklaus gets into contention with an eagle at the 15th and birdie at the 16th, he comes to the 17th hole tied for the lead. He hits his approach to 11 feet, and studies the putt with his caddie-son Jackie. As the putt curls toward the hole, Lundquist starts out with, Maybe,Ž and when it drops he lets out a spirited Yes sir!Ž Jim Nantz, 1997: When Tiger Woods sinks a short putt on the 18th hole to shatter Masters records for youngest winner, lowest 72-hole total and margin of victory, Nantz caps it with, A win for the ages.Ž Verne Lundquist, 2005: Tiger Woods and Chris DiMarco are battling it out, and Woods hits his tee shot on the 16th over the green. Hes facing an impossible chip, but he shows off his imagination with a shot up the slope that slowly trickles toward the cup, hangs on the lip and then falls for an improbable birdie. Lundquists call is legendary: Oh, wow! In your life, have you seen anything like that?ŽShot of the day Patrons try to stay dry during Saturdays play at the Masters in Augusta, Ga. [TODD BENNETT/ THE AUGUSTA CHRONICLE] By Brian MullSavannah Morning NewsDuring the first Augusta National Invitation Tournament in March 1934, Canadian amateur C. Ross Somerville took a mighty swing with a mashie niblick and whacked his ball 145 yards onto what is now the 16th green at Augusta National Golf Club. The ball rolled into the cup, giving Somerville an eternal home in the record book as the first player to make a hole-in-one in the Masters.It was also a harbinger of shots to come.The 16th at Augusta National is an iconic par-3. Jack Nicklaus made a 40-footer to outduel Johnny Miller and Tom Weiskopf there in 1975 and birdied the hole again 11 years later en route to his sixth green jacket. In 2005, Tiger Woods hit a pitch shot from a pre-carious spot behind the green Sunday, and everyone watched his ball hover, hover, hover on the lip before it finally tumbled in.In recent years though, the 16th has earned a reputation as the hole-in-one haven at Augusta National. This is the 82nd edition of the Masters. There have been 28 aces in tournament history, and 19 occurred at No. 16. Through the years, the run of aces has ebbed and flowed and the club of choice has run the gamut. Clive Clark needed a 2-iron from 190 yards out in 1968.Then it was 24 years before Corey Pavin ended the drought at No. 16, using an 8-iron from 140 yards. The ace train started rolling for certain in 2004 when Padraig Harrington and Kirk Triplett found the cup in consecutive groups on a Sunday afternoon.Since 2010, however, theres been an ace parade unlike any other on No. 16, the shots often dropping late on Sunday as sunlight filters through the trees into the amphitheater surrounding the green. Its felt, at times, like the hole is a magnet and the ball is steel, drawn to the traditional hole location in the back left portion of the green.There have been eight aces in the span and four in the past two years, including a 7-iron from 180 yards by Matt Kuchar last year.Why have we seen umpteen aces? What has created the atmosphere for an abundance of magical moments around the 16th green ?They know exactly where to put (the hole) for some excitement,Ž said Adam Scott, who used a 7-iron from from 202 yards to ace the 16th in 2012. You can work off that slope and in quite a big area and its a funnel pin. If they put it right there, it all kind of feeds towards it. And, guys are good, they hit the right line and right number.ŽDavis Love III was the U.S. Ryder Cup captain in 2016 and paired with Webb Simpson in the final round. Simpson had the honor when the group reached the 16th hole. On the tee, he and caddie Paul Tesori had a lengthy debate about club selection. Tesori wanted his man to hit 7-iron, Simpson insisted on 8, which he used and his ball came to rest 35 feet short of the back left flag. Love made an ace with a 7-iron from 181 yards out. The golfers celebrated on the tee, of course, and then Love play-fully chided Simpson about his club selection, saying: I had my 7-iron pointed at you the whole time.ŽTrevor Immelman jumps for joy after sinking a hole-in-one on No. 16 during the “ nal round of the 2005 Masters. [ANDREW DAVIS TUCKER/THE AUGUSTA CHRONICLE] Rory McIlroy Hole #6(PAR 3, 180 YARDS) Rory McIlroy nearly joined the short list of aces on No. 6 in Saturdays third round. He hit his 9-iron tee shot on the downhill hole just over the ” agstick, leaving it two feet away for an easy birdie. It was part of a 5-under front nine that led to 65 for the day. He will be paired Sunday with 54-hole leader Patrick Reed in the “ nal twosome. To get myself into the “ nal group, you know, and have a chance to win another major, Im excited,Ž McIlroy said. You couldnt ask for much more out of today.Ž Leader cardsPar out 454 343 454-36 Patrick Reed 455 333 443-34 Rory McIlroy 453 242 434-31 Rickie Fowler 434 332 444-31 Jon Rahm 344 343 434-32 Henrik Stenson 464 343 344-35 Par in 443 545 344-36-72„216 Patrick Reed 344 343 444-33-67„202 Rory McIlroy 443 544 343-34-65„205 Rickie Fowler 443 544 334-34-65„207 Jon Rahm 343 545 234-33-65„208 Henrik Stenson 443 544 344-35-70„209How the holes played EASIEST OF THE DAYHole 15(PAR 5, 530 YARDS) Round 3 Average score: 4.434 Eagles .............2 Birdies ...........27 Pars ................23 Bogeys ............1 Doubles...........0 HARDEST OF THE DAYHole 1(PAR 4, 445 YARDS) Round 3 Average score: 4.302 Eagles .............0 Birdies ............2 Pars ................36 Bogeys ...........13 Doubles...........1 Wild Card: Phil Mickelson Lefty needed a solid start on moving day if he hoped to get back in contention at the Masters.

By Frank SargeantSpecial to The News HeraldThe action off the beach is the primary news for fisher-men across the Panhandle this month as the vast bait schools show up in their spring migration northward from South Florida, and with them the pelagic near-shore camp followers, cobia, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel along with lots of jacks, bonito and other hungry mouths.The cobia action contin-ues to May, while the kings and Spanish will be here until late October. Here's a look at where and how to catch them: CobiaMost cobia fishing in Panhandle waters is sightfishing. The cobia migrate at the surface in pods oftwo to six, and anglers in tower boats spot them, get ahead of them and let them swim into casting range. It's somewhat akin to the tarpon fishing that comes later in the spring, and the excitement of presenting a bait in front of a visible fish draws anglers from all over the Southeast to get in on the action.The fish are usually migrating from east to west, and the best bite is typically in the morning. Boats work westward slowly anywhere from 100 yards to a quarter-mile off the beach, keeping the sun at the anglers' backs so that they can see into the water. The best cobia boats have towers, with the elevated positions making it easier to see into the water.Cobia readily grab live pinfish, finger mullet, menhaden, blue crabs and particularly, live eels. The Savage Real Eel, a 12-inch black plastic imitation, also works very well. The baits or lures are typically cast on heavy spinning gear, 8-foot medium-heavy rods with size 5000 reels, loaded with 40-pound-test braid or heavier, with the bait or lure fished on a couple feet of 40-pound-test mono tied in with a uni-knot. Hook size is matched to the baits, from ‡ to ‡ typically. The fish get progressively spookier as he season goes on, so it's often necessary to run in a wide arc around the fish, shut off the motor and let them swim into range rather than motoring right up to them for a cast.Some anglers are also bor-rowing a trick from tarpon anglers farther south, running their boats on electric trolling motors ahead of the cobia and simply letting the baits back far enough to get right in the face of the fish „ no splashy cast and the bait stays just in front of them until they take.Cobia these days average between 15 and 30 pounds, with a few larger to 60 pounds caught every year. The days of 100-pounders seem to be over, at least until current reduced harvest limits can have an impact „ few survive long enough to reach giant size these days. The Gulf limit is now one per day or two per boat, whichever is less, April angling action in the PanhandleCobia are a favorite target along Gulf beaches in April, with pods of the “ sh migrating just outside the green bar throughout the month. [CAPT. TROY FRADY/CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] By L. Scott Jackson Special to The News HeraldWith each paddle stroke, I entered an inviting world of shimmering clear waters framed by grey limestone walls covered in whispering ferns and lush spring vegetation. Who knew there were this many shades of green? My mind imagines Spanish explorers had these same inspirational thoughts as they fought through Floridas initial "thick-skin" of sawgrass, palmettos, and briars to find rivers and creeks fed by enticing spring runs. It's easy to see why early explorers believed an eternal "Fountain of Youth" was just out of sight, forever around the next bend. My recent spring exploration was tempered. I knew I wouldnt find the "Fountain of Youth" but exploring our local springs off Econfina Creek can be magical. If you were fortunate enough to grow up in Florida, springs are part of your life, maybe even your DNA. These cool waters are certainly a calming place of rejuvenating recreation. There are many ways to enjoy springs including guided tours, cave dives, paddle trips, or just a leisurely float on an inner tube. Our springs are the windows that open into our ground-water and specifically the Floridan Aquifer. Water cycles into the aquifer through rainfall and infiltration. Water leaves through discharge sites like springs and seepage slopes. How long the water resides in the ground depends on the system and location but can be several decades or even centuries.

Freshwater enters and exits in routine patterns while the heavier saltwater stays on the bottom remaining permanently in place. Our landscaping and farming practices have the potential to negatively impact groundwater resources including treasured springs. Visit http://FloridaYards. org to learn more how you can protect our aquatic gems. Another step in protection of the springs isnt a hard assignment„ visit and enjoy them! The Northwest Florida Water Management District (NFWMD) is responsible for managing our vital freshwater resources. They balance water use with protection strategies that will insure water resources for generations to come. "Water use" isnt just defined as consumption for drinking or irrigation but also for recreational activities and access. One of the best ways to access area springs is to visit one of the water management district parks or launch areas for paddling or tubing. Start your exploration at https://www.nwfwater. com/Lands/Recreation/ Area/Econfina-Creek. Several local outfitters and guided tours of northwest Florida springs are also available. These vendors are easily located with a quick web search. Always be prepared for the unexpected when paddling. Swift waters combined with downed trees or large limbs can cause issues for even the best paddlers. Lifejackets or Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) are also required by law to be on watercraft and, of course, work best when worn! Be safe and learn more at http://myfwc. com/boating/safetyeducation/equipment/ vessels-under-16-feet/ Plan your springs visit today and you can recapture some of the memorable days of your youth even if the illusive fountain remains just out of reach.

JACKSONFrom Page D1 with minimum length to the fork 33 inches. King MackerelKingfish populations have increased dramatically over the last 30 years, after reaching a low point in the 1980s due to extensive large-scale commercial harvest. They arrive in Panhandle waters in schools of thou-sands in April, and remain here until late October when water temperature drops below 68 degrees.Kings show up any-where from a few hundred yards off the beach to 50 miles offshore, but they're much more a coastal spe-cies than the blue-water pelagics like wahoo and dolphin. In fact, some of the largest caught each year are found just outside the jetties of the major Panhandle passes, where they feed along the "color change" as black water out of the bays flows into the blue-green water of the Gulf.In fact, slow trolling a 12to 14-inch live mullet or ladyfish along this break line is one of the favorite tactics of tournament anglers looking for 50-pounders. The big girls definitely patrol these areas, though they're usually few and far between. Anglers specifi-cally chasing these giants usually rely on 30to 40-pound test gear, con-ventional or spin, though a few tournament special-ists go as light as 15 on the theory that the spindly gear is more likely to fool a big fish than the heavier and more visible lines and leaders. Of course, han-dling a fish that can smoke off over a hundred yards of line in seconds on light tackle takes some doing.Large baits are typically rigged with a single hook in the nose, and one or two size 6 extrastrong "stinger" trebles just under the skin along the back. Leaders and stinger wiring are typi-cally number 6 dark wire.Giant kings also show up with some frequency over offshore wrecks and reefs at depths of 100 feet and more. Freelining blue runners or live mullet can sometimes turn up these fish, if the amberjacks don't get to them first.For smaller but more dependable action on school kings of 7 to 15 pounds, it's simply a matter of getting out the inlet at dawn and looking for diving birds. Kings usually feed on top for a time at dawn, and the leaping bait draws the well-known "white tornado" of diving sea birds to the feast.When the fish are on top, they can be caught on practically anything, but a half-ounce white bucktail with a mullet or bonito strip is one of the best offerings. Large topwater lures cranked very fast can also bring some amazing strikes, as do large spoons. Whatever the lure, it has to be moving about as fast as you can crank to draw a strike from kings.Trolling jigs and spoons around the schools also does well, particularly once the sun is up, when most experts put the lures on number 2 planers to get them down a bit, and tow at about 6 mph, twice walking speed.Kings respond well to chum, so anchoring in areas with good current flow, particularly uptide from a wreck or reef, and putting over chum bags with chopped menhaden or shrimp can bring them to the boat. Drift a live sardine, cigar minnow or menhaden back into the slick and hang on „ strikes are usually prompt. These smaller baits can be fished nose hooked on a single size ‡ hook. Again, about 12 inches of number 6 wire to a swivel is essential to prevent cutoffs on the sharp teeth of the macks. Spanish Mackerel Spanish are the smaller cousins of king mackerel, and usually arrive a bit sooner as the waters warm. They tend to hang more inshore than the kings, and schools of them sometimes run into the harbors and large bays to remain for weeks at a time, so long as there's plenty of bait around to feed them. Destin Harbor is a favorite fishing area, especially when wind makes going outside the inlet a challenge.Spanish average from a couple pounds up to 5 or 6 pounds, and like kings they like their food moving fast „ trolling at 6 knots pulling a size 1 or size 0 Clark spoon or sim-ilar with a bit of weight to keep it down a couple feet is often all it takes to get them. For larger Spanish, trolling a 1-ounce chrome Rat-L-Trap, a lipless vibrating lure, is a good way to go. Spoons and Rat-L-Traps cast into surfacing schools also do plenty of business, though it's tough to keep up with the movement of the fish most days.They also readily take live baits including sardines and small cigar minnows as well as live shrimp fished on size 1 to ‡ hooks. Like kings, they readily come to chum. Set up around the jetties or just outside the inlets to lure them in.Also like kings, Spanish have razor-edged teeth, but they do tend to be a bit leader shy at times, particularly in clear water. They bite a lot better on leader of 25-pound-test fluoro or Mason's hard mono than they do on wire, and though some nip off the lures, most do not. Many anglers feel the extra bites with fluoro or hard mono are worth the occasional cutoff. Standard inshore tackle is adequate to catch them „ a medium 7 footspin-ning rod, 3000-sized reel with 15-pound-test braid does the job. Pier ActionAll three of these spring species can readily be caught by the exception-ally-productive beach piers found from Panama City Beach to Pensacola Beach. Obviously, you have to be there when the fish pass within range, but pier regulars catch an amazing number of kings and Spanish, as well as their share of cobia when the run is on.Standard tactic is to get there when at first light, go about of the way out and sabiki up some live baits, whatever happens to bite, and then stow them in an aerated bucket and head for the end of the pier. For kings and Span-ish, the baits are rigged on ‡ to ‡ hooks and cast, unweighted, as far as the angler can heave them with an 8-foot or longer medium-heavy spinning rig and 40-pound-test braid. Whenever a king or Spanish passes within range „ and this happens with frequency when the fish are in „ there's usu-ally a hook-up.Pier kings typically go 7 to 10 pounds, but now and then a "smoker" latches on and the fun begins as the angler passes his/her rod over and under all the other rods bristling from the rail.For cobia, specialists tend to stay on the east side of the piers, watching for migrating fish. They usually travel from east to west „ tossing a live bait or a plastic eel in front of them often results in a hookup. Fish of 20 to 30 pounds are common.Anglers can rent all the necessary gear and get current fishing reports from the Half-Hitch Tackle shops found at or near most of the piers.

The Loquat tree (Eriobotrya japonica) is covered in edible fruit. The flavor is sweet, sometimes slightly tangy, but always mild and pleasant. The Loquat tree grows to about 20 feet and has fragrant little-inch flowers in the fall. This tree may be used as a freestanding specimen for fruit; as an informal shrubbery border, and as a shade tree around your patio or terrace. It also is tolerant of many soil types and is moderately tolerant of salt. Alot of this information may be found in Floridas Best Fruiting PlantsŽ by Charles Boning. Also, one of my professors at Florida, with another horticulturist, published the following book, Florida Landscape Plants,Ž and this tree is found on page 176. Some varieties available are: (1) WolfeŽ which bears large fruit, (2) TanakaŽ is a late season fruit, (3) Golden NuggetŽ is also a late season cultivar. Other varieties are: Premier, Oliver, Christmas, Champagne, Advance, Bradenton, and Vista White. Tending the lawn This is a great time to fertilize your lawn. Apply the fertilizer at its recommended rate. Dont use weed and feed now. It works better in a month or two when weeds are actively growing. University of Florida press had a book titled The Florida Lawn Handbook,Ž edited by Laurie Trenholm and Bryan Unruh. They recommend the following mowing heights: (1) Bahia Grass (3-4 inches) (2) Bermuda Grass (0.5-1.5 inches) (3) Carpet (1.5-2 inches) (4) Centipede (1.5-2 inches) (5) Seashore paspalum (1.5-2 inches) (6) St. Augustine (2.5-4 inches), and (7) Zoysia Grass (1-2 inches). Grass clippings may be left on the lawn if you mow at the proper height and frequently. Clippings may be left if you follow these recommendations. Many of you could plant hollies that offer food and nesting sites for catbirds, cedar waxwings, rufous-sided towhees and woodpeckers. Howard C.

** D4 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Judy Bennett Bay County Genealogical SocietyYears ago, finding my mothers birth certificate was a surprise, since the state of Florida did not require birth records until January 1917, and my mother was born before that„ 1903. As I looked more closely, I was even more surprised to see the date it was issued was September 1941. I found out that this is called a "delayed birth certificate." So, what was this type of birth record and how did it come about? Most of us living today were most likely born in a hospital, where birth information was taken and given to the appropriate government agency. In Florida, it was the county health departmentthat sent it to the State Board of Health. It was automatic for those babies born in a hospital. But why for those born earlier and at home? Back in the 1930s and 1940s, the federal government encouraged people to register a delayed birth certificate, if they didn't already have one. These records were kept by the county, not the state, and may have been kept in a special book for delayed and corrected birth records. Most certificates for women were given in their maiden name but might be in their married name. If you are searching for a birth certificate for your ancestor, check both the state where they were born and the state they resided during the 30s and 40s. Check census records for residence. To find if those older folks got a delayed birth certificate, it is suggested that you Google "delayed birth certificates" along with the state. Then check with the state as to how to search for and obtain a delayed certificate. Some of you probably know or have guessed that the 'why' of delayed birth records was the Social Security Act, passed in 1936. A person needed a delayed birth certificate to prove eligibility for a Social Security pension. To obtain a delayed birth certificate, an individual had to submit multiple sources of information to prove their birth date. These might have included a family Bible with births, church christening or baptism record, or a written affidavit by someone present at the birth. On my mother's certificate of birth, my grandmother made an affidavit stating that she was the mother of Cornelia Connor Bartleson, and that her father, John Frank Bartleson Sr., and the physician in attendance at the birth were no longer living. The certificate also includes information about Cornelia's parents at the time of her birth, including their birth date/ place and occupation. For genealogists, this record is not a primary source, since it wasn't recorded at the time of birth. But, even as a secondary source, it still might give you information. Information for this article was from Ancestry's Redbook, Dollarhide's Genealogy Rule No. 8 and Gen Weekly, the latter two on the internet.TRACING PASTSDiscovering a delayed birth certi cateComing upWhat: 'But What Does It Say? Translating Our Family History' with speaker Fred Borg discussing free online translation programs and how to “ nd professional translator; sponsored by the Bay County Genealogical Society When: 1 p.m. Saturday, April 21 Where: Bay County Public Library, 898 W. 11th St., Panama City Admission: Free; open to the public; handouts included Details: www.northwest” bcgs/index.html By Juliann TalkingtonSpecial to The News HeraldRegardless of whether you believe taxes are crucial and helpful or unnecessary and unfair, it is important that your kids understand the concept of taxation, how tax money is collected and used, and what they can do to influence tax policy. Here are a few kidfriendly facts you can share with your children. There are a lot of taxes in the U.S.: Individuals are taxed on property, purchases, income, wages, facilities use (tolls), and dying (death tax). Companies pay duties, tariffs, fees, registrations, and employment taxes. They pass these extra costs onto consumers as higher prices, which means individuals ultimately pay for business taxes. U.S. taxpayers have little say on how tax money is spent: Once the taxes are collected by a taxing agency, taxpayers have little control on how the money is allocated. As a result, it is critical that voters consider all tax referenda carefully. If a taxpayer does not like a tax he/she can circulate a petition to have the tax recalled, run for office, and/or work to get different politicians elected. Taxes increase the power of the government: Tax revenues give government entities control over large budgets, which can create problems with corruption as companies and individuals lobby to obtain projects bid by the government. Taxes fund a wide variety of programs: Taxes are used to pay for everything from roads and bridges to special projects like studying methane emission from dairy cows. Private sector worker taxes pay for government jobs: When someone works for a public school, a public college or university, the TSA, the military, a company who executes government contracts, an organization that receives government grants etc. his/her salary is paid by people working in the private sector. Even though government employees pay "taxes," these "taxes" just reduce the cost of that worker, since the taxes go back into the pool of money used to pay government salaries. As a result, it is impossible for the government to operate without loans or tax contributions from private sector workers. Tax marketing is often different from tax implementation: Taxpayers are often more willing to approve taxes for education, so government agencies will sometimes market a tax as a way to improve schools without restricting the money to schooling. Once your kids have an understanding of taxation, they can make sound economic decisions for themselves and help their communities make wise choices about taxes and community services.

Highlight in History: On April 8, 1974 Hank Aaron of the Atlanta B raves hit his 715th career home run in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, breaking Babe Ruths record. On this date: In 1820 the Venus de Milo statue was discovered by a farmer on the Greek island of Milos. In 1864 the United States Senate passed, 38-6, the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolishing slavery. (The House of Representatives passed it in January 1865; the amendment was rati“ ed and adopted in December 1865.) In 1913 the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, providing for popular election of U.S. senators (as opposed to appointment by state legislatures), was rati“ ed. In 1935 President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Emergency Relief Appropriations Act, which provided money for programs such as the Works Progress Administration. In 1946 the League of Nations assembled in Geneva for its “ nal session. In 1952 President Harry S. Truman seized the American steel industry to avert a nationwide strike. (The Supreme Court later ruled that Truman had overstepped his authority, opening the way for a seven-week strike by steelworkers.) In 1973 artist Pablo Picasso died in Mougins, France, at age 91. In 1988 TV evangelist Jimmy Swaggart resigned from the Assemblies of God after he was defrocked for rejecting an order from the churchs national leaders to stop preaching for a year amid reports he had consorted with a prostitute. In 1993 singer Marian Anderson died in Portland, Oregon, at age 96. In 1994 Kurt Cobain, singer and guitarist for the grunge band Nirvana, was found dead in Seattle from an apparently self-in” icted gunshot wound; he was 27. In 2003 kidnapper-rapist John Jamelske, who had imprisoned “ ve women and girls, one after another, as sex slaves inside a makeshift dungeon in his DeWitt, New York, home, was arrested. (Jamelske, who pleaded guilty to “ ve counts of “ rst-degree kidnapping, is serving an 18 years-to-life sentence in a maximum security prison.) In a recent letter to the editor, Wayne Harris, of Crestview wrote in his support for opening us the Eastern Gulf to drilling. "America is blessed with abundant energy resources that have made us the worlds leading energy producer. We produce so much because the world relies on oil and natural gas." Patricia Maureen: "I nominate this letter for the Scott Pruitt Oil and Gas Award." Richard Weber: "Even the threat from an oil spill destroyed our economy. Why would anyone want to take the risk of doing that again? One problem many people have is understanding the consequences of their wishes. Some just have $$ on their minds." Bay County will have to install a new underwater water main below the Hathaway Bridge to serve the eastern part of Panama City Beach, at a cost that could exceed $7 million. Dick Weeber: "No problems. They should be able to get a local contractor to low bid this project and then run up the cost with change orders to 8-12 million due to unforeseen problems." In a recent letter to the editor, Steve Hough, of Southport, wrote in about adopting open primaries in Florida. "Florida is only one of nine states with closed primaries, while nonaffiliated voters represent 27 percent of our electorate. As ourŽ primaries are publicly funded, and 84 four percent of races are unopposed or decided in a primary, change is long overdue." Richard Winger: "The proposal Steve Hough favors is not an "open primary". An open primary has been de“ ned in US Supreme Court decisions and political science textbooks as a system in which any voter can choose any party's primary ballot, but each party has its own nominees and its own primary ballot. But Hough wants a system in which the November ballot is con“ ned to only two candidates, which is not the same thing and which severely restricts voter choice in November. California and Washington state are the only states with that system, and they have reduced voter turnout." Comedian Shecky Greene is 92. Author and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Seymour Hersh is 81. Former U.N. SecretaryGeneral Kofi Annan is 80. Basketball Hall of Famer John Havlicek is 78.

I'm a high school teacher who works about 60 hours a week during the school year between teaching, grading, attending meetings, completing paperwork, tutoring before and after school, and planning lessons. My second-oldest sister wants to plan an elaborate road trip this summer that involves renting an RV and driving cross-country with our nieces to visit Disneyland. She feels that since I have the summer off, I should be more than happy to go on this trek. I love my students and nieces, but by the time summer rolls around, the last thing I want to do is spend a week or more in a camper with kids. I told her I have some summer training to go to, which is true, hoping she would drop the subject. She hasn't. I don't want my sister's or my nieces' feelings to be hurt, but I flat-out don't want to do this. What can I tell them? „ SWEATING IT OUT IN THE SOUTHDEAR SWEATING IT OUT: Forgive me if this is blasphemy, but Disneyland isn't everyone's cup of tea. That's why it's time to tell your sisters the truth. You deserve a child-free summer break if you want one, and that fact should not be regarded as a personal insult to anyone. DEAR ABBY: After I retired, I wrote a book. I sent a copy to old friends at no charge.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 E1 VIEWPOINTS The lousy Republicans are supposed to decrease federal spending and get our deficit under control, not blow the budget even more!Ž Ah, yes, you speak of the massive $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill President Trump just signed into law. Members of Congress were givenonly24 hours to read the 2,232-page monstrosity, which nobody did before voting for it.Ž What the heck is an omnibus bill, anyhow?Ž It combines 13 separate appropriation bills, which Congress otherwise must pass and the president must sign, into a single bill that funds all government departments and activities.Ž I thought it is Congress job to fund each appropriation bill separately in a sane, transparent and timely manner„ so that we taxpayers can see what our tax dollars are paying for.Ž So naive! Too many politicians prefer an omnibus approach because it allows them to sneak in lots of goodies in the dark of night. Such bills are then rammed through the approval process before any meaningful review or debate can take place.Ž The dirty rotten sons of a gun! We already have $21 trillion in debt„ thats more than 100 percent of GDP„ and $1 trillion deficits as far as the eye can see. Republicans failed us!Ž Theres no doubt about that. However, theres one silver lining: The Trump administration doubled funding for research into nuclear fusion.Ž What the heck is nuclear fusion?Ž According to Fast Company, it uses hydrogen atoms, an incredibly abundant fuel, to provide clean, almost limitless power, while avoiding the hazardous waste problem and catastrophic risk of current nuclear power.Ž Can you explain that in English?Ž Nuclear fusion can cleanly produce virtually unlimited amounts of incredibly low-cost electric power. It would end the worlds dependence on carbon-emitting fossil fuels, greatly impacting climate-change debates. It would slash manufacturing costs and unleash economic miracles.Ž Cool beans.Ž Despite all the negative news in the world„ despite our countrys reckless spending„ science and technology are in the midst of a powerful new industrial revolution.Ž What is its name?Ž It is called Industry 4.0 or the fourth industrial revolution, whereby interconnections among machines, systems, assets and people are enabling massive insights and improvements in efficiency and performance across all human processes.ŽNuclear fusion is federal bloats silver lining Tom PurcellSee PURCELL, E2AUGUSTA, Ga. „ Tiger Woods, who become his own cautionary tale, makes his biggest pitch for a redemptive comeback this week. And what better place to stage his comeback than The Masters tournament? It has been a tough decade for Tiger so far. You will remember that his wife, Elin, wanted to divorce him, citing irreconcilable waitresses. But she dropped the plan when she read her pre-nup; she just wanted Tiger to get his philandering under control and abide by the rules of golf, including the 14-club hostess limit. Then they settled, finally divorcing with one of the few nondisclosure agreements that worked. Then Tiger hurt his back (I think by picking up too many pancake waitresses). He went to sex rehab, drug rehab and drunk camp. Hes been to Betty Ford so many times the cafeteria named a sandwich after him. When Tiger staged his first comeback, he played terribly. He seemed unable to drive a golf ball or a car. Harrison Ford hit more fairways with his plane than Tiger did during that year. Why would Tiger not want to return to playing on the PGA Tour? Its a great life: You make the money of a Republican, have as much sex as a Democrat, and fly around in a $60 million private Gulfstream jets like our FBI director. He got his DUI while he was on pain meds. The charge was dismissed because he said he was just swerving to miss a tree. It turned out the treeŽ was the air freshener hanging on his rear-view mirror, but it held up in Florida. Will he ever command the moral high ground it takes to hawk Buicks or AT&T? Most of his sponsors dropped him. The one that stayed with him the longest during that time was Lasik Eye Clinics „ until ugly pancake waitress mistresses started to show up. Im always shocked gullible consumers think Tiger would ever drive a Buick or risk missing a booty call due to spotty AT&T cell coverage. It is always dangerous to put yourself out there as a role model. Charles Barkley, whom I really like, probably said it best in his own Nike commercial: Im not your role model.Ž With all the sexual harassment and non-consensual affairs by celebs, we are starting to look back on Tigers dalliances as a kinder, gentler time. Stars often have no real friends who will risk that friendship to tell them when they are off track, and Tiger was one of them. And that is the problem with big celebs. It happened to Elvis. When he started gaining weight and doing karate kicks on stage in that white jump suit and cape, a true friend would have arranged an intervention on The King right then.Tiger inding his way out of the woods Ron HartMany older Americans take several kinds of vitamins, despite a lack of evidence that they prevent disease. [DREAMSTIME VIA MCT] By Liz SzaboKaiser Health NewsWhen she was a young physician, Dr. Martha Gulati noticed many of her mentors were prescribing vitamin E and folic acid to patients. Preliminary studies in the early 1990s had linked both supplements to a lower risk of heart disease. She urged her father to pop the pills as well: Dad, you should be on these vitamins, because every cardiologist is taking them or putting their patients onŽ them, recalled Gulati, now chief of cardiology for the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix. But just a few years later, she found herself reversing course, after rigorous clinical trials found neither vitamin E nor folic acid supplements did anything to protect the heart. Even worse, studies linked high-dose vitamin E to a higher risk of heart failure, prostate cancer and death from any cause.  You might want to stop taking these, Gulati told her father. More than half of Americans take vitamin supplements, including 68 percent of those age 65 and older, according to a 2013 Gallup poll. Among older adults, 29 percent take four or more supplements of any kind, according to a Journal of Nutrition study published in 2017. Often, preliminary studies fuel irrational exuberance about a promising dietary supplement, leading millions of people to buy in to the trend. Many never stop. They continue even though more rigorous studies „ which can take many years to complete „ almost never find that vitamins prevent disease, and in some cases cause harm. The enthusiasm does tend to outpace the evidence,Ž said Dr. JoAnn Manson, chief of preventive medicine at Bostons Brigham and Womens Hospital. Theres no conclusive evidence dietary supplements prevent chronic disease in the average American, Manson said. And while a handful of vitamin and mineral studies have had positive results, those findings havent been strong enough to recommend supplements to the general U.S. public, she said. The National Institutes of Health has spent more than $2.4 billion since 1999 studying vitamins and minerals. Yet for all the research weve done, we dont have much to show for it,Ž said Dr. Barnett Kramer, director of cancer prevention at the National Cancer Institute. A big part of the problem, Kramer said, could be that much nutrition research has been based on faulty assumptions, including the notion that people need more vitamins and minerals than a typical diet provides; that megadoses are always safe; and that scientists can boil down the benefits of vegetables like broccoli into a daily pill. Vitamin-rich foods can cure diseases related to vitamin deficiency. Oranges and limes were famously shown to prevent scurvy in vitamin-deprived 18th-century sailors. And research has long shown that populations that eat a lot of fruits and vegetables tend to be healthier than others. But when researchers tried to deliver the key ingredients of a healthy diet in a capsule, Kramer said, those efforts nearly always failed. Its possible the chemicals in the fruits and vegetables on your plate work together in ways that scientists dont fully understand „ and which cant be replicated in a tablet, said Marjorie McCullough, strategic director of nutritional epidemiology for the American Cancer Society. More important, perhaps, is that most Americans get plenty of the essentials, anyway. Although the Western diet has a lot of problems „ too much sodium, sugar, saturated fat and calories, in general „ its not short on vitamins, said Alice Lichtenstein, a professor Older Americans hooked despite scar ce evidence they workVitamins: Money wasted?See HART, E2 See SZABO, E2


** E2 Sunday, April 8, 2018 | The News Herald VIEWPOINTS Americas white working class has never had a champion more eloquent than the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I dont mean to suggest that this was his mission, but it was the inevitable outcome of his generosity of spirit. King was the central force of the civil rights movement for black Americans, and as long as there are white Americans who think the color of ones skin determines the boundaries of ones community, none of us white people can lay claim to any part of King. Fortunately, he didnt draw those kinds of lines when it came to his advocacy for fellow Americans. His fight for workers rights and economic justice was a crusade for every man and woman of any color who punched a time clock for a living. Yet so few of the people I come from, the white working class, have been willing to see the ally we had in King. On March 18, 1968, less than a month before an assassins bullet ended his life, King stood before a packed house of striking black sanitation workers and their supporters in Memphis, Tennessee, and trumpeted the inherent grace in manual labor. His exact wording „ all labor has dignityŽ „ shook the rafters of Mason Temple of the Church of God in Christ and is well-known to this day. It is also the title of Michael K. Honeys book of Kings speeches on labor rights and economic justice, which is how I happened to read his entire speech from that day. In four short words void of race or gender, King lifted up all workers in this rebuke to those who would measure a persons worth by the status of his or her profession. To fully appreciate the impact of those four words, it helps to know the sentence that came before it. One day,Ž he said, our society will come to respect the sanitation worker if it is to survive, for the person who picks up our garbage, in the final analysis, is as significant as the physician, for if he doesnt do this job, diseases are rampant. All labor has dignity.Ž How glorious, likening sanitation workers to doctors. King had long talked about his dream of a land where men will not take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few,Ž but by 1968, he was lifting the lives of workers everywhere and assuring the world of their worthiness. In a few words,Ž Honey writes, King added union rights for the working poor to his campaign on behalf of the unemployed in both the cities and the newly mechanized cotton country. Memphis thus became the first real front of struggle in the Poor Peoples Campaign.Ž Theres another reason white working-class families were beneficiaries of Kings bravery. Many Americans came to oppose the Vietnam War, but no one jarred our countrys collective conscience like King when he came out against it. And no one had more reason to be grateful for his courage than communities of working-class parents of sons with draft cards and no college deferments up their sleeves. The new HBO documentary King in the WildernessŽ lays bare how Kings condemnation of the war turned many, including some friends and supporters, against him. This compounded a sense of isolation in the final months of his life. What would have happened, I wonder, if more white working-class families had followed King into the streets against that war? Where would we be as a nation if families like mine had embraced Martin Luther King Jr. as our hero, too, while he was still alive? Well never know, but imagining it can still bring me to my knees. Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with Creators Syndicate.MLK and 50 years of working-class what-ifs Connie Schultz How does this relate to nuclear fusion?Ž Because it is allowing technology innovation to happen at a much faster pace. The New York Post explains that until very recently, with the creation of powerful new superconductors, nuclear fusion has been an extremely expensive laboratory experiment that requires more energy inputs than it outputs.Ž English, please.Ž The nuclear fusionreaction process is hotter than the center of the sun„ so hot it will melt any power plant that would attempt to contain it. The solution is to use powerful magnets to create a field to hold the fusion reaction in place without it touching anything solid. But until recently, it took more energy to power the magnets than was produced by the fusion-reaction process.Ž The new superconductors solve that?Ž Yes, the new superconductors can produce powerful magnets that are smaller and require less energy. That means, reports the Post, that for the first time, their system produces more energy than it consumes. The MIT/Commonwealth Fusion Systems team leading the research says it could be commercially viable in only 15 years. And, boy, will that change the world!Ž OK, so theres one silver lining in the massive spending bill. I just hope that nuclear fusion produces massive wealth, because were going to need every penny to pay off our rapidly growing debt!Ž Tom Purcell is a columnist with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Cagle Cartoons. PURCELLFrom Page E1In addition to the quantity, the quality of women Tiger trafficked in should have been cause for alarm. Most of the ones I saw looked a little like truck stop strippers and a whole lot like Dog the Bounty Hunter. I bet a few of them were lying. When asked who was sexually inappropriate with them, they named either Tiger or whoever was willing to settle. When back surgery sidelined him from having sex, he got a consolatory call from Bill Clinton just to remind him that hed be missed and that chasing women is a sport bigger than any one player. To his credit, Tiger handled it all with class. He didnt go crying to Oprah or Dr. Phil. He never dated a Kardashian. He admitted his mistakes, and this time he seemed sincere. There are no winners when our sports heroes whimper. I cannot imagine Babe Ruth, Wilt Chamberlain or Mickey Mantle doing interviews in a Dr. Phil-style, group therapy mea culpa,Ž like Tiger has been advised to do. And, of course, Donald Trump never culpas.Ž Unless someone is physically hurt, when women who had consensual sex come out of the woodwork later for money or notoriety these famous men need to adopt the Trump Doctrine: Wait one news cycle and do something else imprudent to make them forget it. Ron Hart, a libertarian syndicated oped humorist, award-winning author and TV/radio commentator, can be reached at, or visit HARTFrom Page E1at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. And although there are more than 90,000 dietary supplements from which to choose, federal health agencies and advisers still recommend that Americans meet their nutritional needs with food, especially fruits and vegetables. Also, American food is highly fortified „ with vitamin D in milk, iodine in salt, B vitamins in flour, even calcium in some brands of orange juice. Without even realizing it, someone who eats a typical lunch or breakfast is essentially eating a multivitamin,Ž said journalist Catherine Price, author of Vitamania: How Vitamins Revolutionized the Way We Think About Food.Ž That can make studying vitamins even more complicated, Price said. Researchers may have trouble finding a true control group, with no exposure to supplemental vitamins. If everyone in a study is consuming fortified food, vitamins may appear less effective. The body naturally regulates the levels of many nutrients, such as vitamin C and many B vitamins, Kramer said, by excreting what it doesnt need in urine. He added: Its hard to avoid getting the full range of vitamins.Ž Not all experts agree. Dr. Walter Willett, a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, says its reasonable to take a daily multivitamin for insurance.Ž Willett said clinical trials underestimate supplements true benefits because they arent long enough, often lasting five to 10 years. It could take decades to notice a lower rate of cancer or heart disease in vitamin takers, he said. For Charlsa Bentley, 67, keeping up with the latest nutrition research can be frustrating. She stopped taking calcium, for example, after studies found it doesnt protect against bone fractures. Additional studies suggest calcium supplements increase the risk of kidney stones and heart disease. I faithfully chewed those calcium supplements, and then a study said they didnt do any good at all,Ž said Bentley, from Austin, Texas. Its hard to know whats effective and whats not.Ž Bentley still takes five supplements a day: a multivitamin to prevent dry eyes, magnesium to prevent cramps while exercising, red yeast rice to prevent diabetes, coenzyme Q10 for overall health and vitamin D based on her doctors recommendation. Like many people who take dietary supplements, Bentley also exercises regularly „ playing tennis three to four times a week „ and watches what she eats. People who take vitamins tend to be healthier, wealthier and better educated than those who dont, Kramer said. They are probably less likely to succumb to heart disease or cancer, whether they take supplements or not. That can skew research results, making vitamin pills seem more effective than they really are. Preliminary findings also canlead researchers to the wrong conclusions. For example, scientists have long observed that people with high levels of an amino acid called homocysteine are more likely to have heart attacks. Because folic acid can lower homocysteine levels, researchers once hoped folic acid supplements would prevent heart attacks and strokes. In a series of clinical trials, folic acid pills lowered homocysteine levels but had no overall benefit for heart disease, Lichtenstein said. Studies of fish oil also may have led researchers astray. When studies of large populations showed that people who eat lots of seafood had fewer heart attacks, many assumed the benefits came from the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, Lichtenstein said. Rigorous studies have failed to show fish oil supplements prevent heart attacks. A clinical trial of fish oil pills and vitamin D, whose results are expected to be released within the year, may provide clearer questions about whether they prevent disease. But its possible the benefits of sardines and salmon have nothing to do with fish oil, Lichtenstein said. People who have fish for dinner may be healthier due to what they dont eat, such as meatloaf and cheeseburgers. Eating fish is probably a good thing, but we havent been able to show that taking fish oil (supplements) does anything for you,Ž said Dr. Steven Nissen, chairman of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Taking megadoses of vitamins and minerals, using amounts that people could never consume through food alone, could be even more problematic. Theres something appealing about taking a natural product, even if youre taking it in a way that is totally unnatural,Ž Price said. Early studies, for example, suggested beta carotene, a substance found in carrots, might help prevent cancer. In the tiny amounts provided by fruits and vegetables, beta carotene and similar substances appear to protect the body from a process called oxidation, which damages healthy cells, said Dr. Edgar Miller, a professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Experts were shocked when two large, welldesigned studies in the 1990s found beta carotene pills actually increased lung cancer rates. Likewise, a clinical trial published in 2011 found that vitamin E, also an antioxidant, increased the risk of prostate cancer in men by 17 percent. Such studies reminded researchers that oxidation isnt all bad; it helps kill bacteria and malignant cells, wiping them out before they can grow into tumors, Miller said. Vitamins are not inert,Ž said Dr. Eric Klein, a prostate cancer expert at the Cleveland Clinic who led the vitamin E study. They are biologically active agents. We have to think of them in the same way as drugs. If you take too high a dose of them, they cause side effects.Ž Kaiser Health News (KHN) is a national health policy news service distributed by the Washington Post News Service & Syndicate.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 8, 2018 E3 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEWChildren behind bars exist in a Neverland where their views and emotions regarding the outside world remain stuck in the adolescent perspective that got them incarcerated, making it almost impossible to adjust to life once released. How can it be otherwise when their every move and thought is controlled within this countrys juvenile jails by the adults who watch over them? They become institutionalized,Ž unable to accomplish tasks on their own. Add that to the fact that too little attention is given to individualizing a childs treatment to deal with the trauma, poverty and neglect that might have contributed to their original crime. It is a toxic mix. For example, Cristian Fernandez, convicted at age 12 of murdering his 2-year-old half-brother in 2011, only received individualized trauma-focused treatment when the system was pressured to provide it. Why wasnt such therapy routine? Particularly for someone like Fernandez, who was himself the victim of both sexual and physical abuse? Then theres always the possibility the juvenile detention facilities will inflict their own lasting psychological damage on children. After combing through 10 years of Florida Department of Juvenile Justice incident reports, the Miami Herald concluded these juvenile facilities were often inhumane places where staff encouraged juvenile offenders to fight and abuse others, sometimes to the point of death. The problem becomes even more dramatic when children are direct filedŽ into adult court with the expectation that, if convicted, theyll do their time in adult prisons. In Florida, adult prisons are less prepared to deal with young offenders than the states juvenile justice system. According to a Southern Poverty Law Center report, the educational services they provide to children held in adult jails are in most cases seriously deficient. For some children, the services are virtually nonexistent. Adult jails are simply not intended or equipped to house children.Ž Although its bad for boys, its even worse for girls who have fewer services. As an example, Taylor Lawrance of Winter Haven was 15 when she and four other teens committed a home invasion where they stole electronics and clothes. One of the teens was armed, so armed robbery was added to Lawrances conviction. Lawrance, who in middle school was directed toward the International Baccalaureate program, was direct filed in Polk County and received 10 years in adult prison. She is currently behind bars at the Lowell Correctional Institution. Although Taylor, now 18, did earn a GED in prison, there have been few other programs available to her. The way Florida deals with its young offenders must be examined and reworked. It needs to be aimed at giving young offenders actual opportunities to turn their lives around and become productive citizens. They need individualized therapy and quality educational programs. They need life skills and a chance to become accustomed to realworld situations before they return to the community. And Florida must look at the system of direct filing children with the goal of decreasing the number of kids headed for adult prison. Prison is no place for children. This editorial first appeared in the Florida Times-Union.OUR VIEWPrison is no place for childrenI dont mind saying that this column represents a grossly understated review of Discrimination and Disparities,Ž just published by my longtime friend and colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell. In less than 200 pages, Sowell lays waste to myth after myth, not only in the United States but around the globe. One of those myths is that but for the fact of discrimination, wed all be proportionately represented in socio-economic characteristics, such as career, income, education and incarceration. The fact of business is that there is no evidence anywhere on earth, at any time in human history, that demonstrates that. Sowell shows socioeconomic outcomes differ vastly among individuals, groups and nations in ways that cannot be explained by any one factor, whether its genetics, discrimination or some kind of exploitation. A study of National Merit Scholarship finalists shows firstborns are finalists more often than their multiple siblings combined. Data from the U.S., Germany and Britain show that the average IQ of firstborns is higher than the average IQ of their later siblings. Such outcomes challenge those who believe heredity or ones environment is the dominant factor in ones academic performance. Moreover, the finding shows that if there is not equality among people born to the same parents and living under the same roof, why should equality of outcomes be expected under other conditions? In Chapter 2, Sowell provides evidence that people wont take racial discrimination at any cost. The higher its cost, the less it will be tolerated, and vice versa. One example is segregated seating on municipal transit in the South. Many companies were privately owned, and their decision-makers understood they could lose profits by offending their black customers by establishing segregated seating. Transportation companies fought against laws mandating racially segregated seating, both politically and in the courts, but lost. Companies even chose to ignore the law. Faced with heavy fines, though, they began to comply with the law. The point is that the difference between the white transportation owners and the white politicians and segregationists was the transportation company owners had to bear the cost of alienating black riders, and the politicians and segregationists didnt. Sowell broadens his analysis to show regulated companies and organizations „ such as public utilities and nonprofit entities, including colleges and government agencies „ will be at the forefront when its politically popular to discriminate against blacks but also will be at the forefront when its politically popular to discriminate in favor of blacks. Why? Because in either case, they dont bear the burden of forgone profits. In Sowells chapter titled The World of Numbers,Ž he points out what Im going to call out-and-out dishonesty. In 2000, a U.S. Commission on Civil Rights study pointed out that 44.6 percent of black applicants were turned down for mortgages, while only 22.3 percent of whites were turned down. These and similar statistics led to charges of lending industry discrimination and demands that government do something about it. While the loan rejection rate for whites was 22.3 percent, that for Asians and native Hawaiians was only 12.4 percent. Those statistics didnt see the light of day. Why? They didnt fit the racial discrimination narrative. It would have been difficult for the race hustlers to convince the nation that lending institutions were discriminating against not only black applicants but white applicants, as well, in favor of Asian and native Hawaiian applicants.

The idea for the Cyber-Seniors project was inspired by a program launched by two high school sisters, ages 16 and 18, in 2009. The project involved teaming a youth with a Senior and familiarizing them with various aspects of the internet, e.g., Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Skype, and Twitter. Held during Spring Break, Glenwood Seniors on the MoveŽ were teamed with youth from the After School Assistance Program. Seniors participating in the project included Lucille Green, Lecie Flowers, Jonnie Dixon, John Herring, Frances Herring, Nell Brown, Juliaette Smith, Elaine Grif“ n and James Hayden. On the next project day scheduled this summer, Seniors will show youth what they have learned over the last two to three months of practicing with computers.

It has spark and it has fuel pressure. It has no codes in it and we dont have a scanner to see the data from the computer. The timing has not slipped and the exhaust is not stopped up. The only thing I noticed is my spark plugs will foul out with gas... Any ideas on how to diagnose this problem? Paul Paul, nding a shop with a scanner that can read the data that the computer uses would be the best thing. But since this is not available we will have to do pinpoint tests. The tools you will need will be a digital volt meter and the wiring diagram from the computer to the engine power train components. From here you can Pin-outŽ all the input components CRANKS OVER BUT WONT START 93 LEXUS James Morrisjames@masterautotech.comTHE AUTOADVISOR Tech tip: To have your older car repaired in a timely manner, make sure the shop you choose has the correct equipment to diagnose and repair your car. Older cars take equipment that is now considered obsolete. Most shops have discontinued this equipment in order to purchase the newer equipment to work on todays cars and trucks. If your car is older than 1996 then the shop you choose MUST have the scanners along with a computer database to the speci c vehicle to work on your older model vehicle correctly.NF-1179443to verify why the crank no start problem is. You have veri ed the correct fuel pressure and that the timing is mechanically correct along with proper spark. You stated it smells like it is getting too much gas by fouling your spark plugs. Here is what I would do rst, Find the wiring diagram that goes to your car from the cars computer. Then locate the Engine coolant sensor, air charge sensor and Throttle positioning sensor in the diagram. Do these following tests below rst. 1. Look at the engine coolant temp sensor and the air temperature sensor and make sure they are reading about the same resistance value. Temp sensors wrongly reading too cold or too hot can ood an engine. 2. Look at the TPS sensor to insure it is not reading WOT (wide open throttle) this will shut off the ow of fuel to the injectors. 3. Verify that the injectors are not stuck open when you turn the key on. The computer gives a ground to the injectors to come on and off. Make sure that all injectors are working as they should. This is about all the advice I can give that may help you, if youre stuck and want it repaired, please call my shop 850-763-0555 and have my service advisor have your customers car towed in. To diagnose a crank, no start problem on older cars and trucks the labor starts out at 2 hours minimum and we go from there.
