LozanoThe Associated PressHOUSTON Â„ Barbara Bush was remembered as the Âfirst lady of the Greatest GenerationÂŽ during a funeral Saturday attended by four former U.S. presidents and hundreds of other people who filled a Houston church with laughter as much as tears, with many recalling her quick wit and devotion to family.Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush joked that his mother called her style of raising him and his siblings ÂÂa benevolent dictatorshipÂ Â„ but honestly, it wasnÂt always benevolent.ÂŽ She was widely admired for her plainspoken style during her husband George H.W. BushÂs presidency and was known as ÂThe EnforcerÂŽ in her high-powered family.Jeb Bush said he could feel her presence Saturday inside the nationÂs largest Episco-pal church and that she would likely have given him advice: ÂJeb, keep it short. DonÂt drag this out,ÂŽ he said to chuckles. He met her expectations with a speech lasting about seven minutes.He choked up at one point while addressing the roughly 1,500 people seated inside St. MartinÂs Episcopal Church, where his parents regularly worshipped, when saying his mother Â„ known for her self-deprecating remarks about her wrinkles and white-gray hair Â„ was ÂbeautifulÂŽ until the very end.His father, a prolific writer of love letters to his wife, laughed when his son read a letter from their wedding anniversary in 1994. It began: ÂWill you marry me? Oops! I forgot we did that, 49 years ago.ÂŽ But when his son continued reading, about how his father grew happier each year spent with his wife, his father closed his eyes and cried.

Â„ Elmore Bolling defied the odds against black men and built several successful businesses during the harsh era of Jim Crow segregation in the South. He had more money than a lot of whites, which his descen-dants believe was all it took to get him lynched in 1947.He was shot to death by a white neighbor, according to news accounts at the time, and the shooter was never prosecuted.But BollingÂs name is now listed among thousands on a new memorial for victims of hate-inspired lynchings that terrorized generations of U.S. blacks. Daughter Josephine Bolling McCall is anxious to see the monument, located about 20 miles from where her father was killed in rural Lowndes County.The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, opening Thursday, is a project of the nonprofit Equal Justice Initia-tive, a legal advocacy group in Montgomery. The organization says the combined museum and memorial will be the nationÂs first site to document racial inequality in America from slavery through Jim Crow to the issues of today.ÂIn the American South, we donÂt talk about slavery. We donÂt have monuments and memorials that confront the legacy of lynching. We havenÂt really confronted the difficulties of segregation. And because of that, I think we are still burdened by that history,ÂŽ said EJI executive director Bryan Stevenson.The site includes a memorial to the victims of 4,400 Âterror lynchingsÂŽ of black people in 800 U.S. counties from 1877 through 1950. All but about 300 were in the South, and prosecutions were rare in any of the cases. Stevenson said they emphasized the lynching era because he believes itÂs an aspect of the nationÂs racial history thatÂs discussed the least.ÂMost people In this country canÂt name a single AfricanAmerican who was lynched between 1877 and 1950 even though thousands of African Americans were subjected to this violence,ÂŽ Stevenson said.The organization said a common theme ran through the slayings, which it differen-tiates from extrajudicial killings in places that simply lacked courts: A desire to impose fear on minorities and main-tain strict white control. Some lynchings drew huge crowds and were even photographed, yet authorities routinely ruled they were committed by Âper-sons unknown.ÂŽMcCall, 75, said her fatherÂs killing still hangs over her family. The memorial could help heal individual families and the nation by acknowledg-ing the painful legacy of racial murders, she said.ÂItÂs important that the people to whom the injustices have been given are actually being recognized and at least some measure Â„ some measure Â„ of relief is sought through discussion,ÂŽ said McCall.Combined, the memorial and an accompanying museum a few miles away at the Equal Justice Initiative headquarters tell a story spanning slavery, racial segregation, violence and todayÂs era of swollen prison populations. With nearly 7 mil-lion people behind bars or on parole or probation nationwide a disproportionate number of them minorities the NAACP says blacks are incarcerated at a rate five times that of whites.E.M. Beck, who studied lynching for 30 years and has written books on the subject, said the memorial might actu-ally understate the scope of lynching even though it lists thousands of victims.ÂI think itÂs an underesti-mate because the number and amount of violence in early Reconstruction in the 1870s will probably never be known. There was just an incredible amount of violence taking place during that period of time,ÂŽ said Beck, sociology professor emeritus at the University of Georgia.The memorialÂs design evokes the image of a racist hanging, featuring scores of dark metal columns suspended in the air from above. The rectangular structures, some of which lie flat on the ground and resemble graves, include the names of counties where lynchings occurred, plus dates and the names of the vic-tims. The goal is for individual counties to claim the columns on the ground and erect their own memorials.Not all lynchings were by hanging. The Equal Justice Initiative says it scoured old newspapers, archives and court documents to find the stories of victims who were gunned down, drowned, beaten and burned alive. The monument is a memorial to all of them, with room for names to be added as additional victims are identified.The monumentÂs April 26 opening will be marked by a two-day summit focusing on racial and social justice, to be followed by an April 27 concert featuring top acts including Common, Usher, the Dave Matthews Band and The Roots.McCall plans to view the memorial with her five living siblings. She says they suffered more than she did, since she was only 5 when their father was slain.A newspaper account from the time said the 39-year-old Bolling, who owned a store and trucking company and farmed, was shot seven times on a road near his store by a white man, Clarke Luckie, who claimed Bolling had insulted his wife during a phone call.McCall, who researched the slaying extensively for a book about her father, said itÂs more likely that Luckie, a stockyard employee, resented her father, who had thousands of dollars in the bank, three tractor-trailer rigs and employed about 40 people.ÂHe was jealous and he filled him with bullets,ÂŽ she said.New memorial o ers chance to remember, healIn this April 18 photo, Josephine Bolling McCall poses with a photo of her father, lynching victim Elmore Bolling, at her home in Montgomery, Ala. [JAY REEVES/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Sarah Rankin The Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. Â„ Ryan Kelly won a Pulitzer Prize this week for his photo of a car plow-ing into protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia an image he snapped on the final day of his newspaper job before leaving to work at a brewery.The photographer has joined a growing list of journalists who have won the profession's high-est honor on their way out the door of a once-thriving news-paper industry now destabilized and seriously weakened by the internet. Kelly, 31, said he was burned out and looking for a better quality of life."Bad hours, bad pay, high stress, low job security ... it all just sort of built to me being ready to move on," said Kelly, who now works as digital and social media coordinator at Ardent Craft Ales in Richmond.Like Kelly, other Pulitzer winners said deteriorating con-ditions in the industry drove them out.Digital titans Facebook and Google have captured the majority of advertising that once supported local journalism, Craigslist has wreaked havoc on classifieds and free news outlets have proliferated online. Circulation has declined, and newspapers have slashed jobs and reduced benefits.Rob Kuznia, a reporter for the Daily Breeze of Torrance, Cali-fornia, made headlines in 2015 for having left the paper by the time he won a Pulitzer for an investigation into widespread corruption in a school district.Since then, the reporter who won with him, Rebecca Kimitch, also has departed for a public relations job. "I was done. I just didn't have the fight in me anymore," said Kimitch, who had been a jour-nalist for about 15 years.Working at a local newspaper meant being asked to do more with less, she said. But it also meant having less support, as the number of editors and copy edi-tors who examine stories closely for style, grammar, clarity and fairness have diminished. She found herself constantly wracked with anxiety about possible errors in her stories."You're just on your own. That level of stress is really overwhelming, and it just takes a toll," she said.According to an analysis from the federal Bureau of Labor Sta-tistics, the number of people employed in the newspaper publishing industry fell almost 60 percent between June 1990 and March 2016. At the same time, the number of people employed in internet publish-ing and broadcasting rose from about 30,000 to nearly 198,000. Laurie Garrett, a former Newsday reporter who won a Pulitzer for her reporting from what was then Zaire on an Ebola outbreak and has been honored with other top industry awards, echoed Kimitch's concerns about the dwindling ranks in newsrooms."What we've lost through years and years of budget cuts and corporate takeovers and stock market dividend-seeking and so on by the news industry ... we've lost that bench," she said.Garrett said that when journalism was at its peak in the 1980s and '90s, she thinks the industry was able to hold leaders accountable. Now, some of that has fallen to activist groups like Black Lives Matter or other citizen organizations, and the media has missed important stories, she said."You hear the outcry all the time: Where's the media and why weren't they there?" she said.Among the corporate takeovers in the past 10 years was the buyout of MediaNews Group, one of the country's largest newspaper chains that included the flagship Denver Post. A New York hedge fund, Alden Global Capital, acquired the company now operating as Digital First Media, and critics say it has gutted newsrooms while draining off profits.Pulitzer honoree latest ex-journalist to winIn this Aug. 12, 2017, photo by Ryan Kelly of The Daily Progress, people Â” y into the air as a car drives into a group of protesters demonstrating against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

** A4 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldSpring Break, and controversy surrounding it has slowly diminished.In the wake of Spring Break's tipping point, Beach residents voted in Mike Thomas as mayor by a landslide, welcoming his family-friendly, anti-Spring Break platform. During last week's city council election, voters again emphasized their approval of the new Spring Break when they favored Â„ by a slim margin Â„ anti-Spring Break candidate Geoff McConnell over the new laws' outspoken critic Burnie Thompson. And though the March econ-omy has yet to recover to the levels it reached before Spring Break laws were passed, it has crept back up every year. Bed tax numbers, charged to renters, tanked after the new laws were put in place, dropping from $2.1 million in 2015 to $1.28 million in 2016. The next year, they edged up again to $1.43 million.Bed tax numbers are not yet available for March 2018, but Tourism Development Council Executive Director Dan Rowe, who has been in his position for 10 years, said the preliminary numbers look good.ÂWe think this March weÂve seen another strong increase in lodging revenues,ÂŽ he said last week. ÂWe anticipate weÂll have a double-digit increase this year over last year.ÂŽThe city's sales tax dollars Â„ a separate but equally important measure of the city's economic health Â„ followed a similar pattern. In 2015, the figure was $970,846. That number sank to $787,360 in 2016 but already was back up to $906,345 in 2017.Rowe added that year-round tourism continues to rise, which to him indicates Panama City Beach no longer needs Spring Break.ÂWeÂve seen an increase in [the number of] people that were here throughout the month of March,ÂŽ Rowe said. "The good news is there were no major incidents that we experienced in previous years.ÂŽOverwhelmingly, officials and even some businesses reported they saw the promised fami-lies start to arrive this year. But some businesses, such as the superclubs that relied on Spring Breakers, still are struggling to cope.To mark the fourth Spring Break since everything changed, here is a review of what four prominent voices said before the laws were passed and what they say now, as well as the sto-ries of two Panama City Beach businesses. Mike Thomas, mayor and business ownerWhat he said in 2015: A Bay County commissioner when Spring Break laws were passed, Thomas said the Beach and county had no choice but to pass strict laws, as the negative publicity surrounding Spring Break had the potential to hurt the area's image, which could hurt property values. ÂThe factor behind (passing) the laws was trying to make our community a more family friendly Beach year round,ÂŽ Thomas told The News Herald in 2015. Thomas saw Spring Break, and the crime that went with it, as a liability for the community and at times said he thought the Beach "could have gone further" with the laws. ÂI think weÂve taken advantage of family tourism for many, many years, and I think we stand a chance of running that away if donÂt take complete control of this right now,ÂŽ he said at the time. What he says now: As mayor, Thomas is a Â“ rm believer the Spring Break laws are working, and is even considering extending the beach alcohol ban into April, as some colleges don't go on Spring Break until then. ÂBecause we have less trouble, weÂre getting some nice young folk who didnÂt want to be involved in the trouble," he said last week. "Snowbirds are staying longer, and families are coming.ÂŽ He added there is always work to be done, when it comes to bettering Panama City BeachÂs reputation. Sparky Sparkman, owner of SpinnakerWhat he said in 2015: As one of the business owners who stood to lose the most from the Spring Break laws, Sparkman was a loud critic in 2015, saying the conversation had Âprogressed past thoughtful consideration, transcended Âknee-jerk,Â and has entered the ridiculous realm.ÂŽ He argued in a Letter to the Editor that Spring Break helped the area become prosperous and grow, though he agreed changes needed to be made to clean up the area. In other statements, he repeatedly expressed fears the laws would close his club, and at one point joined with other business owners to Â“ le a lawsuit against the laws that was ultimately unsuccessful. What he says now: After the Spring Break laws passed, Spinnaker's business took a sharp dive, as Sparkman had predicted, and recovery has not come quicly. Sparkman said the club and restaurant's March 2018 numbers were more than 75 percent less than in March 2015. "Our hiring has also been impacted, but certainly not proportionally," he said. "In order to adequately prepare for even greatly diluted (business), March demands we still must hire in excess of 60 percent of the former level of hiring from 2015 and prior, making the impact of signiÂ“ cantly reduced revenue even more severe. For Spinnaker, we have no currently available operational means to overcome the Â“ nancial impact of the lost March business." Spinnaker has tried to expand into other parts of the year and other avenues, but Sparkman said food sales simply "have not taken up the slack.ÂŽ He described his emotions to the third-year anniversary of the passage of the laws as Âresignation.ÂŽ ÂIt is what it is,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs not going to change. ThatÂs my feeling. They think Spring Break will come back. I think some of it will creep back. But as long as weÂre going to tell college kids they canÂt do what they come here to do, which is to drink on the sand, they are going to choose another destination.ÂŽ Hector Solis, Panama City Beach councilmanWhat he said in 2015: Not yet on the council in 2015, Solis started his campaign against Spring Break as a citizen, a leader with the homeowners group Citizens for a New Panama City Beach who felt Spring Break had become uncontrollable. ÂYou cannot control 80,000 to 100,000 drinking, rowdy kids,ÂŽ he told the city council at the meeting to ban drinking on the beach. ÂWe donÂt have any way to enforce anything. Whether itÂs personal consumption or coolers on the beach.ÂŽ Solis said he had to cut his rates on condos he rents out because clientele didn't care for the raucous atmosphere. ÂWhatÂs happening is there are a select few groups of people who are making this money,ÂŽ he said. What he says now: Solis, who continues to call Spring Break a loser for the community, believes the beach is becoming a familyfriendly destination. ÂWhat we did worked,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe need to stay strong in what weÂre doing. Businesses are getting overwhelmingly better with family business.ÂŽ Solis said he understands some businesses have not recuperated since the Spring Break rules, but loosening the rules would be a mistake. ÂWe must continue the alcohol ban because as soon as we let our guard down, it can go back to where it was.ÂŽ Jack Bishop, owner of Harpoon HarryÂs and Capt. JackÂs Family Bu etWhat he said in 2015: Bishop didnÂt think the Spring Break laws would devastate his businesses, as they arenÂt targeted at the Spring Break demographic, but he was braced for a decline. ÂIn the month of March (the restaurants) dramatically do better than February or April or May,ÂŽ he told the News Herald just before the laws passed. ÂYou just take (spring breakers) out of our market completely, and I think it will mean about a 30 percent drop (in business) immediately (next) March, and as time goes on, weÂll overcome that.ÂŽ But Bishop said the economy would survive. "The economy is not going to go broke, and neither is the city of Panama City Beach,ÂŽ he said. Spring Break Âis no longer as key as it was 20 years ago, or even 10 years ago, because there is much more to our resort than there was at that time. But it is going to make a difference in a certain segment of our customer base.ÂŽ He was, however, one of the business owners who signed on to the lawsuit. What he says now: Bishop said three years in, business owners seem to be accepting the Spring Break laws and Âmaking do.ÂŽ This season, he said, his restaurants had strong numbers for March Â„ and even brought in some Spring Breakers Â„ which he attributed to the early Easter holiday. ÂI think that this March was unique because Easter was April 1,ÂŽ he said. ÂIf you go back to 2016 when Easter was in March, itÂs the same kind of trend. We deÂ“ nitely have families and kids out of school in March when Easter is early.ÂŽ But he said when Easter is late, as will be the case next year when it falls April 21, itÂs going to be a much different story, and he expects March numbers to be signiÂ“ cantly down. He added the Spring Breakers who were here this year didnÂt just rent hotels, but condos and rental homes. ÂThey rented all over the place because there werenÂt as many rules,ÂŽ he said. ÂThey couldnÂt drink on the beach, so that means they had to do their partying wherever they were staying. And itÂs hard to do that in say the Holiday Inn Select. They were still here though.ÂŽ Electroluxe Tattoo Co.The 2015 laws hurt Steve Thomas, the owner of Electroluxe Tattoo Co. He said his business plunged so much after the Spring Break laws were passed that he moved from a beach location to 1523 Lisenby Ave., a smaller shop in town with cheaper rent. He said the laws not only reduced the number of out-oftown customers but decreased the income for locals who came into his shop to get tattoos. ÂA majority of Electroluxe's clientele are locals, but when locals on the beach have no disposable income it has forced us to move the business to a place with more Â“ nancial consistency,ÂŽ he said. Thomas also ran for a Bay County Commission seat in 2016, stating in a News Herald Q&A, "If elected I want to strengthen small business, promote good and vibrant tourism, and push for government transparency and accountability. I would push to be a more business friendly community and elected ofÂ“ cials be more accountable for their decisions that affect locals and local businesses." He did not win the seat, nor has he seen his business resurge. Thomas said each year after the laws were passed, Electroluxe saw a steady drop in revenue by 30 percent to 35 percent a year. ÂThree months into 2018, itÂs been closer to an 80 percent drop in revenue,ÂŽ he said. Thomas said many people would like the March drinking ban to be rescinded. ÂI think everyone hates it but is afraid that if they undo it, it will bring back that craziness,ÂŽ he said. Just Jump TrampolineA new business to Panama City Beach, Just Jump Trampoline Park opened its doors in March with the promise of family fun, making it exactly the kind of business ofÂ“ cials had been hoping to attract. Josh Culbertson, a manager at the business, said the business has been swamped with families, and there are times it's so busy, people have to wait to get in to comply with Â“ re safety laws. ÂIt was received really well,ÂŽ he said. ÂThere were a handful of those days (during March) we were completely full for the whole day.ÂŽ SPRING BREAKFrom Page A1 Thomas Sparkman Solis Bishop Thomas April 16, the period law enforce-ment considers the Spring Break season. Many of the crime figures held steady from previous years, but both agencies saw fewer violent crimes and con-siderably fewer firearms on the streets.Both PCBPD Chief Drew Whitman and Sheriff Tommy Ford said their officers saw more families and experienced a calmer atmosphere on the beach during this year's March alcohol ban. But as the calendar flipped to April and the alcohol ban lifted, a more substantial surge of visitors descended on the Beach than officers expected.Whitman said his officers were hearing explicitly from students Â„ particularly those from a Louisiana college Â„ that they had petitioned to have their Spring Break moved to April to avoid the alcohol ban.ÂA lot of schools are pushing their breaks back,ÂŽ Whitman said. ÂWe were prepared for a large first week of April. We knew it was coming. It was just a shock.ÂŽWhitman said the students didnÂt cause a significant surge in crime or exhaust PCBPDÂs available resources. He will be bringing the observation before the Beach Council, though, at a future hearing for their consideration, Whitman said.Mayor Mike Thomas has already said he is leaning toward extending the ban.ÂWe didnÂt have rules in effect, and people came down and misbehaved a little,ÂŽ he said. Â[The former Spring Break] crept back in since a lot of places like Atlanta donÂt have Spring Break until around early April or Easter.ÂŽFord said he heard about schools shifting their breaks but did not have first-hand evidence of that. He said he was pleased with this yearÂs Spring Break, though, and simply described it as Âmanageable.ÂŽÂBefore, it was dangerous,ÂŽ Ford said. ÂBut the steps we took to curb those dangerous aspects of Spring Break have been successful.ÂŽ Guns, violent crimesWhile Spring Break 2017 was mired by gunplayÂ„ with weekly shootings, resulting in two deaths and more than a dozen arrestsÂ„ only one armed robbery stood out this year. Six Birmingham, Ala., males were arrested April 2 after a woman was held up at gunpoint near a motel in Panama City Beach for her purse. Each was charged with varying degrees of culpa-bility in the armed robbery, and the case is still pending.Overall, the number of guns recovered by law enforcement during Spring Break has fluctuated since a steep drop immediately after the alcohol ban, which was written into law in 2016. In the last year of unfettered alcohol consumption on the beach, officers confis-cated 93 firearms. In 2016, that number steeply dropped to 20, and then in 2017 the two agen-cies combined took 46 guns off the streets. This year, officers saw another drop as PCBPD and BCSO collected a combined 26 firearms, according to agency stats.Ford said the results are indic-ative of the Beach Âreclaiming its reputation.ÂŽÂThe reputation we developed threatened visitation every other month of the year,ÂŽ he said. ÂThe decisions weÂve made have helped reclaim our reputation.ÂŽ According to figures released by PCBPD and BCSO, arrests for violent crimes mostly held steady this year compared to Spring Break 2017 despite the lack of gunplay. Whitman said crime is generally random and can spike because of economic influences or weather, which essentially influence the number of people traveling to the Beach. But the trend since adopting alcohol ban has been a decrease and stabilization of major crimes.Many aspects of crime remained the same compared to figures from last year, includ-ing drug arrests, which dropped sharply immediately after the implementation of the alcohol ban. Officers arrested a combined total of 507 people from drug-related offenses in 2015 and since have seen that number cut almost in half each year.Total arrests have seen a simi-lar trend between the agencies. In the days before the beach alcohol ban, arrests totaled 2,423 in 2015. This year that number was at 1,200 total arrests, only slightly varied from the previous two years. Alcohol arrestsOne significant shift from 2017 to 2018 was that arrests over alcohol on the beach sand saw a sharp uptick for PCBPD. Across the county, arrests for alcohol possession and consumption decreased Â„ from 176 in March 2017 to 157 in 2018. However, PCBPD reported taking on the lionÂs share this year with 127 arrests compared to BCSOÂs 30 arrests.Whitman attributed the sharp distinction in the num-bers to the lack of violent crimes freeing up officers to patrol more for minor infractions.ÂWe were able to be more proactive,ÂŽ Whitman said. ÂMajor crimes take up more time. And when you prevent the big things, the little things go up.ÂŽFord had a similar take on the numbers. He said because there were fewer violent crimes on the beach, his offi-cers spent less time providing aid in the high-volume areas of PCBPDÂs jurisdiction.ÂGround zero for Spring Break is mostly within the BeachÂs city limits,ÂŽ Ford said. ÂNow things are starting to normalize, we are still working with them, but we focused more on the countyÂs jurisdiction.ÂŽBoth PCBPD and BCSO are already digesting the crime figures and analyzing trend from this year in preparation for next yearÂs Spring Break. Seeing what he interprets as stabilization, Ford said the message going forward is to Âstay the courseÂŽ in order to not reverse the groundwork laid by the Spring Break laws.ÂWhat weÂre doing has been effective,ÂŽ he added. ÂThis could easily go back the other way if we are not vigilant.ÂŽ BANFrom Page A1

** A6 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldDecision to suspend nuclear, ICBM testing opens door to further discussions at summitBy Kim Tong-Hyung and Eric TalmadgeThe Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea Â„ North Korea announced that it will suspend nuclear tests and intercontinental ballis-tic missile launches ahead of its summits with Seoul and Washington, but stopped short of suggesting it has any intention of giving up its hard-won nuclear arsenal. The announcement, which sets the table for further negotiations when the summits begin, was made by leader Kim Jong Un at a meet-ing of the North Korean ruling partyÂs Central Committee on Friday. It was reported by the NorthÂs state-run media early Saturday.Kim justified the suspen-sion to his party by saying the situation around North Korea has been rapidly changing Âin favor of the Korean revolutionÂŽ since he announced last year that his country had completed its nuclear forces.He said North Korea has reached the level where it no longer needs underground testing or test-launching of ICBMs, and added that it would close its nuclear test-ing facility at Punggye-ri, which was already believed to have been rendered unusable due to tunnel collapses after the NorthÂs test of its most powerful bomb to date last year.The announcement is KimÂs opening gambit to set the tone for summit talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, set for next Friday, and U.S. President Donald Trump, expected in late May or early June.Trump almost immedi-ately responded with a tweet, saying, ÂThis is very good news for North Korea and the WorldÂŽ and Âbig progress!ÂŽ He added that heÂs looking forward to his summit with Kim.South KoreaÂs presidential office also welcomed North KoreaÂs announcement as Âmeaningful progressÂŽ toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Presidential official Yoon Young-chan said in a statement that the NorthÂs decision brightens the pros-pects for successful talks between Seoul, Pyongyang and Washington.Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe offered a more guarded reaction.ÂWhat is crucial here... is how this development is going to lead to the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of nuclear arms, weapons of mass destruction and missiles,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd I will keep a close eye on that.ÂŽPyongyang residents, who have been largely kept in the dark about KimÂs plans to meet Trump, gathered at subway stations, where newspapers are posted for the public, or around large screens in city plazas to see the reports.One resident, 34-year-old Son Kum Chol, said he read the news in the ruling partyÂs newspaper. North Koreans are extremely cautious when speaking to the media, but Son told The Associated Press that the news made him feel the Âfuture road will be brighter and prosperous.ÂŽSome analysts believe Kim feels he is entering the summit negotiations from a position of strength and is hoping to achieve tacit recognition that his country is now a nuclear power. They believe he wants to engage in talks and make some conces-sions around the edges that would convince Washington and other countries to ease sanctions on his struggling economy.In his speech at the party meeting, Kim praised his nuclear policy as Âa miracu-lous victoryÂŽ achieved in just five years. A resolution passed after his speech also stressed that the country had successfully achieved its goals of obtaining a viable nuclear force and suggested it intends to keep that force.Using the acronym for North KoreaÂs official name, it said the North would Ânever use nuclear weapons nor transfer nuclear weapons or nuclear technology under any circumstances unless there are nuclear threats and nuclear provocation against the DPRK.ÂŽÂThis was a smart move by Kim,ÂŽ Vipin Narang, an associate political science professor and nuclear proliferation expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said in an email. ÂAlthough it largely formal-izes previous pledges on the moratoria from last Novem-ber and March, it still leaves a lot of wiggle room for cir-cumventing the pledges in the future, and nothing in there is irreversible. And nothing in there mentions denucleariza-tion, of any variety.ÂŽNarang noted that North Korea has already conducted as many nuclear tests as Paki-stan and India Â„ six Â„ and may indeed not need to con-duct any more underground testing.Tossing out another nugget that could be used at the summits, Kim stressed at the party meeting his desire to shift the national focus to improving the countryÂs economy, which has been hit hard by international sanctions and the Âmaximum pressureÂŽ strategy pushed by Trump.The announcement ends what had been an ominous silence from Pyongyang regarding the stunning diplomatic moves Kim has been making since the begin-ning of this year, including his summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping last month.It also gives the best idea yet of what Kim intends to bring with him in his summits with Moon and Trump.Seoul says Kim has expressed genuine interest in dealing away his nuclear weapons. But North Korea for decades has been pushing a concept of ÂdenuclearizationÂŽ that bears no resemblance to the American definition, vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its troops from the peninsula.Some important items were also left off the NorthÂs resolution Â„ such as midrange missile or space rocket launches Â„ suggest-ing either that the North isnÂt willing to go that far or that it wants to wait and see how much it can gain by further concessions once actual talks begin.NKorea setting stage for talksNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un speaks Friday during a meeting of the Central Committee of the WorkersÂ Party of Korea, in Pyongyang, North Korea.

** A10 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Fares Akram and Karin LaubThe Associated PressJEBALIYA REFUGEE CAMP, Gaza Strip Â„ IsraelÂs defense minister said Saturday that Hamas leaders are the Âonly culpritsÂŽ in continued bloodshed on the Gaza border, as the European Union and a top United Nations official made new demands to investigate shootings of unarmed Palestinians by Israeli sol-diers, including the killing of a 14-year-old boy.Avigdor LiebermanÂs comments on Twitter came a day after four Palestinians, including the teen, were shot and killed by Israeli army fire from across the border fence, according to Gaza health officials.More than 150 Palestinians were wounded Friday, in the fourth round of weekly Hamas-led mass protests in the border area.The teen, Mohammed Ayyoub, was about 150 yards from the fence when he was hit, Gaza photographer Abed Alhakeem Abu Rish told The Associated Press. He said that the boy was about to take cover when he was shot and fell to the ground, collapsing head first. The Israeli military says it is investigating the incident. The latest deaths brought to 32 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops in pro-tests since late March. More than 1,600 have been wounded by live rounds in the past three weeks, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.The rising Palestinian casu-alty toll signaled that IsraelÂs military is sticking to its open-fire rules despite inter-national criticism of the use of lethal force against unarmed protesters.Israel has said it is defending its sovereign border, includ-ing Israeli communities on the other side. It has alleged that Hamas uses the protests as cover for attacks and for damaging the border fence.Late Saturday, the military released photos and videos depicting what it has said it is trying to counter. In one image, young boys, under the cover of smoke, are seen charging the fence and uprooting part of it to allow for an infiltration.The military said it had dis-tributed leaflets warning the residents of Gaza to stay away from the fence but alleged that Âthe terror organizations in the Gaza Strip continue to exploit civilians, including many youth and children, while putting them in unnecessary danger.ÂŽRights groups have said IsraelÂs open-fire orders are unlawful because they effec-tively allow soldiers to open fire on unarmed demonstrators.The marches are part of what organizers have billed as an escalating showdown with Israel, to culminate in a mass march on May 15.The top Hamas leader, Ismail Haniyeh, said Friday that people should get ready for large crowds spilling across the border that day.ÂOur people will outnum-ber the occupation and force it from our land,ÂŽ he said, referring to Israel.The latest killings sparked new demands by a senior U.N. official and by the E.U. for an investigation.Nikolay Mladenov, a top U.N. envoy in the region, said on Twitter that it is Âoutra-geous to shoot at children.ÂŽThe European Union urged the Israeli military to Ârefrain from using lethal force against unarmed protesters.ÂŽMohammed AyyoubÂs father, Ibrahim, said Saturday that his son was killed in cold blood.ÂMohammed did not deserve to be executed,ÂŽ the 42-year-old said as mourners streamed to the familyÂs shack in the Jebaliya refugee camp. ÂHe was not holding a stone or a gun ... Mohammed was not running toward the fence.ÂŽIsraelÂs Lieberman blames Hamas over Gaza deathsResidents arrive Saturday morning at the house of Mohammed Ayyoub, 14, who was killed during a protest along GazaÂs border with Israel, east of Jebaliya Gaza Strip. [ADEL HANA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Jill LawlessThe Associated PressLONDON Â„ Prince Charles has spent a lifetime waiting to be king. On Friday the 69-yearold heir to the British throne got another position to wait for Â„ he was approved as the next head of the Commonwealth made up of the U.K. and the countries that once were its colonies. Commonwealth leaders meeting in London confirmed that the next chief of the 53-nation group "shall be His Royal Highness Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales." That won't happen until he suc-ceeds his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, as monarch when she dies.British Prime Minister Theresa May said the decision was unanimous, although it had not been a foregone conclusion.Elizabeth, who turns 92 on Saturday, has led the Commonwealth since she became queen in 1952. However, the position is not hereditary, and some people have suggested a non-royal leader would give the group of nations a more modern profile.But any opposition was squelched by an intervention from the queen, who told the gathered leaders in person Thursday it was her "sincere wish" that Charles would one day carry on her Com-monwealth work.The position is largely symbolic, but the queen's commitment has been a major force behind the survival of the Commonwealth. She has visited almost every member country, often multiple times, over her 66-year reign.Charles is almost as well-traveled as his mother, and is a longtime champion of environmen-tal causes, a priority for the Commonwealth. Its mem-bers include small island nations in the Caribbean and Pacific that are among the countries most vulner-able to rising seas, fiercer storms and other effects of global climate change.Leaders at the meeting signed a "blue charter" to protect the world's oceans and committed to stronger cybersecurity and freer trade.Britain's May described Charles as "a proud supporter of the Com-monwealth" and said "it is fitting that one day he will continue the work of his mother."However, Philip Murphy, director of the University of London's Institute of Commonwealth Studies, said Charles' political passions could hold peril for the Commonwealth."We know the queen is very proper and discreet and doesn't push her own political ideas, but that's not true with Prince Charles," Murphy said. "And there is a danger that he might use that greater leeway to promote controversial ideas of his own, and that could be damaging."Charles set to succeed queen as Commonwealth head

Granddaughters offered readings, some of their voices shaky with emotion, while their eight grandsons were pallbearers.The Bush family was seated in front of the church. Nearby, two other former presidents Â„ Bill Clinton and Barack Obama Â„ along with their wives and current first lady Melania Trump were seated in the same pew.A eulogy was also given by Barbara BushÂs longtime friend, Susan Baker, wife of former Secretary of State James A. Baker III. She said Bush Â„ the wife of the nationÂs 41st president and mother of the 43rd Â„ was Âthe secret sauce of this extraordinary family.ÂŽAs the funeral ended, George H.W. Bush was pushed in his wheelchair by another son, former President George W. Bush, as they followed the casket out of the churchÂs cavern-ous sanctuary, which had been adorned with sprays of yellow garden roses, yellow snap dragons and antique hydrangeas.They stopped along the way to shake hands as mourners sang ÂJoyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee,ÂŽ which Barbara Bush had requested as the final song. She died on Tuesday with her husband by her side, at their home in Houston. She was 92. Barbara Bush was buried Saturday afternoon at her husbandÂs presidential library at Texas A&M University in College Station, about 100 miles (161 kilometers) northwest of Houston. The burial site is in a gated plot surrounded by trees and near a creek where the coupleÂs 3-year-old daughter Robin is buried. She died of leuke-mia in 1953.ÂIt was a very brief but poignant and beautiful ending to a very moving and incredible day. It would have been exactly what Barbara Bush wanted,ÂŽ family spokesman Jim McGrath said.Hundreds of people lined both sides of the street near the campus as the funeral procession passed on a gray, cloudy day. Flags were flown at half-staff.Other guests at the invitation-only funeral included former Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, and professional golfer Phil Mickelson, along with Karl Rove and other former White House staff members.Melania Trump said in a statement it was an honor to give her respects to a ÂfearlessÂŽ first lady, adding: ÂToday the world paid tribute to a woman of indisputable character and grace.ÂŽ President Donald Trump didnÂt attend to avoid security disruptions, according to the White House, but he released a statement saying his thoughts were with the family. Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosal-ynn, also didnÂt attend because he was traveling overseas and she was recovering from surgery, according to the Carter Center.On Friday, more than 6,200 people visited the Houston church during a public viewing. Many of the women wore the former first ladyÂs favorite color, blue, and her trademark pearl necklaces.George H.W.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 A13 The Associated PressDETROIT Â„ General Motors has replaced the head of its Cadillac luxury brand, which has strug-gled for years to compete against German and Japanese luxury automakers in the U.S.The company says Steve Carlisle will replace Johan de Nysschen, who is leaving to pursue other opportunities.Carlisle had been managing director of GM's Canadian operations.De Nysschen was hired away from Nissan's Infiniti luxury brand with much promise and named president of Cadillac in August of 2014. A few months later he moved the brand's head-quarters from Detroit to New York in an effort to give Cadillac more sophistication.But the move didn't help with buyers. Although sales grew globally, they fell during his tenure in the U.S., GM's most lucrative market. Sales declined 8 percent last year and dropped another 4.6 percent through March.Jessica Caldwell, senior analyst for the Edmunds.com car buying website, said de Nysschen bet heavily on the German luxury model of rolling out cars at a time when the market was shifting dramatically toward SUVs. (Edmunds regularly provides content, including auto-motive tips and reviews, for distribution by The Associated Press.)In media interviews, de Nysschen talked about the shift coming, but Caldwell said the brand didn't move quickly enough to capitalize on it. Currently Cadillac has only two SUVs on sale, the full-size Escalade and the midsize XT5, with the compact XT4 coming in the fall."When you think about a market that's over half SUVs and you have two, it's not a good place to be," Caldwell said. "That was a pretty big miss from a financial standpoint."According to GM, Car-lisle led a resurgence of GM brands in Canada, where last year it was the top-seller of vehicles to individual retail buyers.He'll report to GM President Dan Ammann, who said in a statement that the luxury carbuying world is changing rapidly. "It is paramount that we capi-talize immediately on the opportunities that arise from this rate of change," Ammann said. "This move will further accelerate our efforts in that regard."GM replaces Cadillac president "It is paramount that we capitalize immediately on the opportunities that arise from this rate of change.

** A14 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Philip IssaThe Associated PressBEIRUT Â„ Chemical weapons inspectors col-lected samples from SyriaÂs Douma on Saturday, two weeks after a suspected gas attack there followed by retaliatory strikes by West-ern powers on the Syrian governmentÂs chemical facilities.The site visit, confirmed by the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, would allow the agency to proceed with an independent investigation to determine what chemicals, if any, were used in the April 7 attack that medi-cal workers said killed more than 40 people.Douma was the final target of the governmentÂs sweeping campaign to seize back control of the eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damas-cus from rebels after seven years of revolt. Militants gave up the town days after the alleged attack.The U.S., France, and Britain blamed the President Bashar AssadÂs government for the attack, and struck suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities one week later.The Syrian government and its ally Russia denied responsibility for the attack.OPCW inspectors arrived in Damascus just hours before the April 15 strikes but were delayed from visiting the site until Saturday, leading Western officials and Syrian activists to accuse Russia and the Syrian government of stag-ing a cover-up.ÂI wonÂt find any hope in my heart until the Assad regime is held accountable and eradicated from government in Syria,ÂŽ said Bilal Abou Salah, a Douma media activist who left the town after the government takeover. He said he feared Russian and Syrian govern-ment personnel destroyed potential evidence in the two weeks since the alleged attack.The OPCW said in a statement that it visited Âone of the sitesÂŽ in Douma to collect samples for anal-ysis at agency-designated laboratories, adding it would Âconsider future steps including another possible visit to Douma.ÂŽIt said the mission will draft a report based on the findings, Âas well other information and materials collected by the team.ÂŽThe OPCW mission is not mandated to apportion to blame for the attack. A U.N. security team had scouted Douma on Tuesday to see if it was safe for weap-ons inspectors to visit. The team came under small arms and explosives fire, leading the agency to delay its mission.Journalists visiting Douma the previous day, escorted by government minders, experienced no security issues.Russian ministry spokes-woman Maria Zakharova said the delays to the OPCW team were Âunacceptable,ÂŽ in a statement Saturday.Douma is just minutes away from Damascus, where the OPCW team is based.Images emerging from Douma in the hours after the attack showed lifeless bodies collapsed in crowded rooms, some with foam around their noses and mouths.Abou Salah entered one of the buildings affected by the alleged gas attack the following day and took footage of a yellow cylinder with a gas valve on the top floor. He said it had crashed through the roof and showed a gash in the ceiling where it purportedly came through.His assertions could not be independently verified. But the cylinder looked like others identified by the international NGO Human Rights Watch at other locations of chlorine gas attacks attributed to the government in 2016.Raed Saleh, the head of the Syrian Civil Defense search-and-rescue group, also known as the White Helmets, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his organization had shared the coordinates of the graves of April 7 victims with the OPCW, so that inspectors could take biological samples.Civil Defense workers evacuated Douma after the attack, fearing persecution by the security services of the government. The government says the group is a terrorist organization. The group, which operates in opposition areas only, maintains a strong position against Assad.Thousands of people Â„ rebels and civilians Â„ left Douma on buses to north Syria in the days after the attack, believing they could not live under government authority after it retook the town. North Syria is divided between opposition, Turkish, and al-Qaida control.The evacuations were the latest in a string of popula-tion transfers around the Syrian capital that have dis-placed more than 60,000 people as the government reconsolidates control after seven years of civil war. U.N. officials and human rights groups say the evacu-ations amount to a forced population displacement that may be a war crime.On Saturday, rebels began evacuating three towns in the eastern Qalamoun region in the Damascus countryside, state TV reported.State-run Al-Ikhbariya TV said 35 buses left the towns of Ruhaiba, Jayroud, and al-Nasriya carrying hundreds of rebels and their families to opposition terri-tory in north Syria.The station said there could be 3,200 rebels leaving three towns on Saturday. It said the evac-uations would continue for three days.Syrian government forces will take over the towns once the departures are complete.Inspectors collect samples from siteThis photo released Saturday by the Syrian ofÂ“ cial news agency SANA, shows Syrian government forces overseeing the evacuation by bus of rebels and their family from the towns of Ruhaiba in the eastern Qalamoun region in the Damascus countryside, Syria. Syrian state media says sev eral buses have left the towns of Ruhaiba, Jayroud and al-Nasriya carrying hundreds of rebels and their families to opposition territory in north Syria.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 A15By Amber PhillipsThe Washington PostItÂs not just because itÂs 4 / 20 Â„ though that contrib-uted to at least one major senatorÂs announcement that heÂs come around to the idea of decriminalizing marijuana.Marijuana legalization advocates say theyÂve had the best week in Washing-ton since, well, ever. And itÂs thanks to politicians on both sides, including the president, suddenly embracing efforts to help even more states legalize marijuana.ÂI think we reached critical mass among the population years ago,ÂŽ said Don Murphy, the director of conservative outreach for Marijuana Policy Project, Âbut I think we are finally reaching critical mass on Capitol Hill now.ÂŽ Consider:Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., announced Friday that heÂs decided to support decriminalizing marijuana at the federal level and will advocate for bills to help marijuana businesses (no pun intended) grow. Schumer cited an Âevolved thinking both personally and by the nationÂŽ for his switch. As The PostÂs David Weigel writes: ÂItÂs the first time that a leader of either party in Congress has endorsed a rollback of one of the countryÂs oldest drug laws.ÂŽLast Friday, President Donald Trump promised a top Senate Republican from Colorado that heÂll protect states that have legalized marijuana. ThatÂs in stark contrast to what TrumpÂs attorney general did earlier this year by rolling back Obama-era protections allowing states to create their own marijuana laws without fear of prosecution from the federal government. (The federal government says marijuana is illegal.) TrumpÂs position on reconciling the different laws was vague before this.This week, the House of Representatives held one of its first hearings ever on legislation to roll back medi-cal marijuana regulations.And last week, former Republican House Speaker John Boehner pulled a stun-ning 180 from his days in Congress and announced that heÂd joined a board of directors for a cannabis company. Boehner had once said he was Âunalterably opposedÂŽ to decriminalizing marijuana because it would lead to more people abusing it, alcohol and other drugs.Legalization advocates say thereÂs no one thing that happened recently to spark these politicians to suddenly switch from their long-entrenched views. But there is plenty of evidence of states and public opinion moving, rather rapidly, in favor of marijuana legalization, and perhaps the politicians in Washington are finally taking notice.All but two states have laws on the books at least recognizing the value of medical marijuana. Medical marijuana is legal in 29 states. Recreational marijuana is legal in nine states and the District of Columbia, and advocates are optimistic that that number could double by the 2020 presidential election.An October Gallup poll found record-high support for legalizing mar-ijuana, including among Republicans (51 percent). Seventy-two percent of Democrats supported it and 64 percent of all Americans.In Michigan, Republican lawmakers are considering legalizing recreational mari-juana rather than letting an initiative thatÂs gaining steam make the ballot this fall. GOP lawmakers fear the ballot measure would boost Democratic turnout in November, reports the Detroit News. That would make Michigan only the second state to legalize marijuana by the legislature, after Vermont did so earlier this year. That bill was signed by a Republican governor, Phil Scott.In fall, voters in Okla-homa and Utah will consider marijuana measures. In 2016, voters in Arkansas, North Dakota and Florida overwhelmingly approved medical marijuana legal-ization. Those are all states Trump won.ItÂs probably less of a surprise that Democratic gubernatorial and attorney general candidates are practically tripping over themselves to support marijuana legalization, said Karen OÂKeefe with Mari-juana Policy Project.In SchumerÂs home state of New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, is facing a primary challenger, Cynthia Nixon, who has made marijuana legaliza-tion a central feature of her campaign. Cuomo initiated a statewide study this year on what legalizing mari-juana would mean for New York.WhatÂs up with politicians suddenly embracing pot?

ÂThe adrenaline took over.ÂŽ Sitting on the his live well, he propped both legs against the side of the boat and heaved the monstrous fish from the Choc-tawhatchee River.

Only 75,208 of the registered patients have been issued ID cards allowing them to purchase the marijuana treatment, and nearly 3,000 more applications for the cards are being processed.According to the update, 1,314 doctors have qualified to order marijuana treatment for patients.Florida voters broadly legalized medical marijuana in a constitutional amendment nearly two years ago, but state regulators are fighting a series of legal and administrative challenges about the laws and rules related to the burgeoning industry.Tampa strip-club owner Joe Redner recently won a court victory after Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Giev-ers signed off on allowing the 77-year-old cancer survivor to grow his own marijuana. RednerÂs doctors testified that juicing marijuana whole plants was the best source of treatment to keep his cancer in remission. The state is appealing the decision.In a separate case initiated by Orlando lawyer John Morgan, who largely bankrolled the constitutional amendment, patients are challenging a state law ban-ning smokable marijuana. The patients argue that their doctors have ordered the smokable treatment.Florida surpasses 100,000 medical marijuana patientsA MedMan employee holds a sample of a propagated strain of marijuana in the propagation lab at the MedMen facility in Reno, Nev. [ANDY BARRON/AP] By Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack email@example.comPANAMA CITY Â„ As much as it was about the past in Panama City, the inaugural Historic Downtown Block Party was also about the future.The daylong event of the streets of downtown Panama City presented visitors with chances to view classic cars on display, listen to live music and sample the fare of several local vendors. It also coincided with an Earth Day celebration at neighboring McKenzie Park, presenting visitors with an education about sustainability and environmental awareness.Several tents from local con-servancy or political groups filled the park as dozens of people meandered under the shade of the oak trees. Of those groups, the Florida Trail Asso-ciation joined with the Bay County Historical Society to present visitors with a historic walking tour of downtown Panama City.Bob Daffin, president of the historical society, said preserving the environment and preserving history are more intertwined than most realize.ÂIf we donÂt preserve our history, we canÂt know how to prepare the future,ÂŽ Daffin said. ÂOur goal is to preserve history so that future genera-tions can appreciate its beauty much like how we want to preserve our environment for future generations.ÂŽAs the tour wound through the block party, Daffin provided hikers with the history of downtown Panama City and told them that FloridaÂs settlers had to be much more in tune with the environment than modern Floridians.ÂPioneers had to learn how to survive dealing with the environment,ÂŽ he said. ÂThe environment was a huge issue. And original pioneers knew more about how to survive it than most people do today.ÂŽThere are still people who brave the elements of Florida, of course. Steve Womack, a volunteer with the Florida Trail Association, said many people donÂt connect hiking with environmentalism. But one of the main goals of trail association members is to pre-serve the beauty of the 1,300 miles of the Florida Trail for future generations to enjoy.ÂItÂs all intertwined,ÂŽ Womack said. ÂWe all have the common interest of a love for the outdoors.ÂŽNone of that would be possible without Âkeystone species,ÂŽ like bees. Buddy Rich, owner of BuddyÂs Bee Farm in Altha, had a booth sta-tioned at McKenzie Park with a display to educate people that the entire ecosystem hinges on bees. ÂIf we lost all the bees, within five years, the world would be dead,ÂŽ Rich said. ÂAbout 60 percent of what ends up on your plate is due to a bee.ÂŽRich said while bees are now considered livestock, man still threatens their existence with chemicals in pesticides or carbon monoxide. He said it is still possible to preserve the bee community, though, by individuals cutting down on pesticide use. Both events were free to the public. The block party, a new take on what was once First Friday, will happen monthly on the third Saturday of the month through November. The theme of the first event was ÂLive United,ÂŽ and future themes will include military appreciation, a barbecue com-petition and a fall carnival.Downtown events showcase P.C.Âs past and presentEarth Day, inaugural Block Party coincide on HarrisonA volunteer at the Kritter Inc.

** B4 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Dara Kam and Jim Saunders The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ As legislative leaders hold behind-the-scenes talks about revamping the gambling industry, Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday announced a deal that will lead to the Seminole Tribe continuing to pay more than $300 million a year in casino money to the state.The tribe would continue making the payments, which are rooted in a 2010 gambling agreement, through the 2019 legislative session. In exchange, the tribe would continue to have exclusive rights to offer games such as blackjack at its casinos and would continue to be the stateÂs only slot-machine operator outside of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.ÂToday, I am proud to announce that the state of Florida has reached an agreement with the Semi-nole Tribe which ensures the tribeÂs current commitment remains intact,ÂŽ Scott, who will leave office in January after eight years, said in a prepared statement. ÂSince I took office, the Seminole compact (the 2010 agreement) has generated more than $1.75 billion which has helped our state make historic investments in things like FloridaÂs education and environment.ÂŽWednesdayÂs announcement did little to scuttle negotiations between House and Senate leaders as they try to craft a sweeping gambling bill before the November election, when voters will decide whether to approve a constitutional amendment that would make it harder to expand gambling. The proposed amendment, if approved, would give voters control of future gambling expansions, something now largely controlled by the Legislature.Rep. Jose Oliva and Sen. Bill Galvano, who will take over as House speaker and Senate president after the fall elections, have been in talks for weeks Â„ without the Seminoles at the table Â„ about a possible special session on the gambling issue.The two leaders are report-edly close to agreement but have not closed out a deal that likely would encompass slot machines, controversial Âdesignated playerÂŽ card games and myriad other gambling-related issues. Efforts by lawmakers to reach agreement on major gambling issues have repeatedly failed over the years.ÂIt's a positive development but does not rule out a special. There are still many questions regarding the statewide framework of gaming,ÂŽ Oliva, R-Miami Lakes, said in a text message, referring to the agreement that Scott announced Wednesday with the tribe.The ongoing discussions between the Republican leg-islative leaders are Âmore of a conversation than a nego-tiation,ÂŽ according to Oliva.The agreement announced Wednesday would guarantee until May 2019 the continued flow of Seminole cash to the state budget Â„ ostensibly one of the reasons legislative lead-ers have been floating the idea of holding a special session. But the agreement also could be part of an effort to head off attempts by lawmakers to expand gambling through steps such as allow-ing slot machines outside of Broward and Miami-Dade.ÂIt certainly is a positive step. However, we are con-tinuing discussions regarding special session,ÂŽ Galvano, a Bradenton Republican who has been instrumental in negotiating agreements with the Seminoles over the past several years.The announcement from ScottÂs office came after a series of developments that began with the 2015 expiration of one of the crit-ical provisions of the 2010 compact. That provision gave the tribe exclusivity in being able to offer banked card games, such as blackjack.While the tribe continued making payments to the state after the provi-sion expired, the money was put in jeopardy because of a dispute about lucrative designated-player games at state-regulated pari-mutuel facilities.A federal judge sided with the tribe in a dispute over whether designatedplayer games breached the SeminolesÂ exclusivity over offering banked card games. The tribe agreed to continue making payments to the state, and gambling regulators promised to Âaggressively enforceÂŽ the manner in which cardrooms conduct the designated player games.But a temporary deal between the state and the Seminoles, in which the tribe agreed to continue making the payments, expired late in March, sparking the push for a new round of negotiations.The Seminoles have never threatened to stop making payments to the state, although their Tallahassee lawyer, Barry Richard, has repeatedly said that is some-thing they could do, given the federal judgeÂs ruling.The new agreement "was intended as a level of comfort to anybody in the Legisla-ture or the governor's office or anywhere else that had any concerns that the tribe was intending to end the payments, which we never intended to do," Richard told The News Service of Florida on Wednesday evening.ÂSo we gave people com-fort," he said.Scott, Seminoles reach deal on gambling moneyIn exchange for payments to the state, the Seminole Tribe will continue to have exclusive rights to offer games such as blackjack at its casinos and will continue to be the stateÂs only slot-machine operator outside of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

** B8 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldTALLAHASSEE Â„ Reject-ing arguments of school boards across the state, a Leon County circuit judge this week formally rejected a challenge to a controversial 2017 law that included a series of moves to boost char-ter schools. Circuit Judge John Cooper, who had earlier indicated he would turn down the challenge, issued an 18-page ruling Tuesday siding with the Florida Department of Education and the State Board of Education, the defendants in the case. The lawsuit centered on a measure, commonly known as HB 7069, that was a priority of House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land OÂ Lakes, and became one of most-controversial issues of the 2017 legislative session. Debate about the measure highlighted continuing tensions between local school districts and the state about oversight and expansion of charter schools, which are public schools but are often run by private operators. The mammoth law included changes such as requiring county school boards to share local propertytax revenues with charter schools for building-related expenses. It also set the stage for adding new charter schools Â„ dubbed Âschools of hopeÂŽ Â„ that would serve students whose traditional public schools have been considered low-performing. Among other issues, the law called for school districts to provide federal Title I fundingÂ„ whaich is designed to help schools that serve large numbers of low-income students Â„ to charter schools. School boards in Alachua, Bay, Broward, Clay, Duval, Hamilton, Lee, Orange Pinel-las, Polk, St. Lucie, Volusia and Wakulla counties filed the lawsuit last year arguing, at least in part, that HB 7069 infringed on their constitutional authority to operate public schools within their districts. The Collier County School Board also intervened in the case. Cooper held a hearing April 4 and, according to Tampa Bay Times and Orlando Sen-tinel reports, said he would rule in favor of the state. He then issued the 19-page final order and judg-ment this week rejecting the arguments raised by the school boards. For example, Cooper dis-missed an argument that the law required school boards to share local property-tax rev-enues with charter schools in an arbitrary way. ÂHB 7069Âs enrollment-based formula for charter-school capital-outlay funding accounts for the fact that schools with more students need more classrooms, and charter schools are required to spend capital-outlay funding for substantially the same purposes as school districts,ÂŽ Cooper wrote. ÂThe local boards have not shown that the capital-millage (property tax) provisions are constitutionally different from the numerous other, presumptively constitutional requirements governing the use of local tax dollars in Flor-idaÂs public schoolsÂ„ which have included charter schools for more than 20 years.ÂŽ As another example, Cooper rejected arguments that school districts have a right to decide how to allocate Title I money. ÂHB 7069Âs effort to direct more Title I funding toward individual schools is also rationally related to legitimate concerns about ensuring that Title I funds benefit schools with the highest proportion of economically disadvantaged students,ÂŽ the judge wrote.Judge rejects challenge to controversial school law

** B10 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldDarlena Cunha, Mark BermanThe Washington PostBELL Â„ Investigators contin-ued to seek a motive behind the killing of two Florida sheriff's deputies gunned down while eating inside a restaurant the previous day, even as the sher-iff's office said no answers would fully explain the shocking attack. The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office, in a statement released about 24 hours after the shoot-ing, said "there will never be a reason for what he did to Ser-geant Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey. Nor will it ever satisfy their families. They sat down to eat, and were here to serve." The slain deputies Â„ 29-year-old Ramirez and 25-year-old Lindsey, both of whom were in uniform and on dutyÂ„ were eating at the Ace China restau-rant in Trenton, Florida, when the gunman went in and opened fire, the sheriff's office said. A day earlier, authorities had said the attacker fired from outside the restaurant. Police have iden-tified the shooter as John Hubert Highnote, 59, of Bell, Florida, and they said Friday he had shot and killed himself in his car parked outside the restaurant. "Our deputies were ambushed," the sheriff's office said in its statement. "They were unable to return fire." The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigat-ing the shooting. A spokesperson for the agency declined Friday to say what could have motivated the attack, citing the ongoing investigation into what happened in Gilchrist County, a small Northern Florida commu-nity 40 miles west of Gainesville. The sheriff's office said it did not have additional information about Highnote, saying only, "He's a coward, period." In Bell, the rural community where Highnote had lived, residents with homes not far from his said they had not encountered him, though they described that as common in an area where people live far from each other and are not typically close with their neighbors. Highnote's home in Bell was a small, one-story structure with a no trespass-ing sign out front, plywood on the windows and shell casings in the front yard. "Most of us people have lived here for years and years and never even heard of [Highnote]," said Becky Barnette, who lives not far from Highnote's home. "We mostly all just stay to ourselves." Bill Crace, a mechanic who has spent 27 years repairing engines in Bell, echoed Barnette. "I never saw him," said Crace, whose business flies American and Confederate flags outside. "I never even heard of him until yesterday. . I do know a lot of people. But I never knew him." In Akins BBQ, a restaurant on Bell's Main Street, waitress Jamie Mallman said the slain deputies had frequently come in to eat. "It's tragic when it happens to your own," said Mallman, a lifelong Bell resident. "There's no rhyme or reason to this crime." Public records showed that Highnote had lived or associated with addresses across Florida, including in Daytona Beach, Melbourne, Clearwater and St. Petersburg. During that time, he had a handful of encounters with police, mostly involving traffic infractions. There were other encounters with the courts and law enforcement, including a 1978 charge in Pinellas County for carrying a concealed firearm. He entered a not guilty plea, court records show, and the case was dismissed in 1980. Sheri 's o ce: ÂThere will never be a reasonÂ Kristine PhillipsThe Washington PostThe young man in a white jail jumpsuit, handcuffed and shackled, looked past the throng of reporters pointing microphones toward his face, barely opening his mouth as he answered questions."I shot through the door," he said, looking at a female reporter who asked about his connection to the student who had been shot."I didn't kill anyone," he told a man with a video camera."I didn't kill anyone," he said again, this time, to the female reporter.Sky Bouche was being taken to jail that Friday eve-ning, hours after authorities said he drove to a high school in Ocala carrying a shotgun hidden in a guitar case. The 19-year-old, a former student of the school, went to the bathroom, where he put on a tactical vest and gloves. He then shot one round from his sawed-off shotgun through a classroom door, injuring one student, inves-tigators said.The shooting happened at about 8:30 a.m. Friday, on the 19th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado. It also came just months after a gruesome shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, reignited a nationwide debate over guns and created some of the loudest voices calling for gun control: the students themselves.Students at Forest High School, like many others across the country, had planned a walkout Friday morning to protest gun vio-lence, in observance of the Columbine anniversary. Instead, they experienced their own traumatic event.As he made his way toward the police car flanked by five uniformed officers, Bouche told reporters he's "sorry" to the wounded student."It doesn't make it better, anyway," he said.Bouche is facing several charges, including terror-ism, aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of a firearm on school property, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

** B14 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Steve PattersonGatehouse Media FloridaJACKSONVILLE, Fla. Â„ Attorneys and firefighters have negotiated a $4.9 million settlement to a lawsuit by the federal government that said JacksonvilleÂs promotion tests unfairly put black firefighters at a disadvantage.The agreement includes a requirement to have new promotion tests to select engineers in the fire departmentÂs combat, rescue and pre-vention divisions and the creation of up to 40 new positions.The agreement could be presented to City Council members when they meet Tuesday but still needs a court review.Opponents of the agreement can file paper-work seeking a Âfairness hearingÂŽ before the set-tlement is finalized.ThereÂs no admission of wrongdoing in the settlement, which could conclude a six-year law-suit that has tied up the city and the Jacksonville Association of Firefighters, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the NAACP, the Jacksonville Brotherhood of Firefighters and a series of individual firefighters.The city reported reaching a tentative settlement in January 2017. It had taken until now to work through many details about a promotion system that affects the careers, pay and pride of more than 1,000 firefighters, a group that carries significant political influence.ÂWe were ready to settle when we felt like it was a fair settlement,ÂŽ said Randy Wyse, the fire union president. ÂWeÂve been working on this for many years.ÂŽThe U.S. Justice Department argued at least 59 black firefighters were prevented from being promoted to ranks ranging from engineer to district chief because of tests the city used between 2004 and 2011.That wasnÂt intentional, DoJ lawyers said, but argued the cityÂs system of pass-fail scoring and rank order for promotions created obstacles that werenÂt necessary for the fire departmentÂs good operation.The agreement requires steps to revisit that system.Wyse said the union will schedule meetings in the next couple of weeks to explain the settlement terms to firefighters in detail but that the agreement thatÂs been negotiated matches standards he heard from his members.ÂThe test will remain totally objective. There will be predetermined answers, and you will get your score before you leave the test,ÂŽ Wyse said.He said some members may still be unhappy with the agreement but are free to argue their concerns at the fairness hearings.Some ugly statistics about promotions had worked against the city.U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan ruled in 2015 that the federal government had made a prima facie case for discrimination by showing that promotion rates from the disputed tests ranged from 0 to 25 percent for African-Americans com-pared to 14 to 71 percent for whites.The city had still denied discrimination, but if the case had gone to trial, city lawyers would have had to show Âa legitimate, non-discriminatory business objectiveÂŽ for using a test system whose results were so disparate.$4.9M settlement drafted for suit over Fla. cityÂs re promotionsThe federal government had said promotion tests for Jacksonville, Fla., Â“ reÂ“ ghters, photographed last year during a memorial march downtown, put black applicants at an unfair disadvantage because of the way tests were designed. A $4.9 million settlement to the 2012 lawsuit is being prepared for review by the City Council. [GATEHOUSE MEDIA FLORIDA]

** B16 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News Herald Special to The News HeraldTALLAHASSEE Â„ The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) on Friday issued a statement confirming Sunrun Inc. can offer residential solar equipment leases in Florida.Sunrun, based in California, does not serve Bay County but does offer rentals elsewhere in Florida. After reviewing SunrunÂs draft lease agreement, com-missioners determined the company's 20-year solar equipment lease is not a retail sale of electricity.PSC rules long have allowed the leasing of renewable energy equipment, but the lease terms cannot be structured to, in effect, sell electricity to the customer. Commissioners originally considered SunrunÂs petition at the March 1 Commission Conference, but requested to evaluate its lease agreement before making a decision. Sunrun filed its draft lease on March 20.Commissioners agreed last week that SunrunÂs lease conforms to its peti-tion by offering customers fixed payments indepen-dent of electric production. As a result, Sunrun will be allowed to lease rooftop solar equipment to home-owners without being considered a public utility under the commissionÂs jurisdiction. Homeowners can lease equipment to generate electricity for personal use and also ben-efit from interconnection and net metering with their local utility.ÂResidential equipment leasing makes solar more attractive for some customers, and todayÂs decision confirms that FloridaÂs ratepayers have that option,ÂŽ PSC Chair-man Art Graham said.To learn more about solar energy locally, the Bay County League of Women Voters and the Solar United Neighbors of Florida will host an informational meet-ing Monday on solar co-ops.PSC OKs companyÂs solar equipment leasesThe Bay County League of Women Voters and the Solar United Neighbors of Florida will host an informational meeting Monday on solar co-ops.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 B17By Aaron Jacobs@cnb_ajacobs email@example.comCRESTVIEW Â„ James Lewis was due for a midlife crisis.The former Crestview resident who now lives near Tal-lahassee was approaching 50 and starting to think about things to check off his bucket list.ÂI started warning my family that one of the things I had always wanted to do was run into the woods with virtually nothing, maybe just a knife, and be like Rambo,ÂŽ Lewis said. ÂIt was going to be my planned mid-life crisis. IÂm too busy to have a mid-life crisis, so IÂd have to plan it out.ÂŽ It was around that time Lewis became aware of a new show on The Discovery Channel called "Naked and Afraid." The show takes a man and a woman, drops them into a harsh environment without clothing and challenges them to survive for 21 days. It was the perfect opportunity.ÂAs soon as I saw it, I was like, ÂGosh, they have been watching my dreams.Â That is the challenge IÂve been wanting to do for 30-plus years.ÂŽLewis began training for the show shortly after that. He hiked a total of more than 500 miles barefoot through gravel, dirt and hot asphalt to prepare his feet for what they would endure. He practiced starting friction fires Â„ more than 600 by his count Â„ using hand drills and bow drills.ÂI was just bound and deter-mined I was going to go.ÂŽIn 2017 when Hurricane Hermine was barreling toward Tallahassee and his office shut down, he jumped at the opportunity to put his survival skills into practice.ÂI immediately stripped down to my shorts, ran into the woods, and I acted as if I was on the show. I spent the next four days building a shelter and look-ing for food. I own 20 acres in a rural area, so a lot of the time I literally did strip down and re-enact the show.ÂI can tell you what: When youÂre laying in a shelter and the wind is blowing at 80 miles an hour and trees are crashing down around you, and youÂre cold and laying in the mud Â„ wow, that was challenging.ÂŽ Local rootsLewis came to Crestview in 1978 when his father was stationed at Eglin Air Force Base. He spent his middle and high school years there and received a scholarship from the Crestview News Bulletin in 1985.ÂComing up from a farming community and a farming family, money to go to college was not readily available," Leiws said. "So when the scholarship was awarded to me, it was just that little help, that little spark to get me started on a college career.ÂŽLewis spent a year at Okaloosa-Walton Community College, now Northwest Florida State College, before he went to Auburn University to study architecture. It was not an easy move.ÂI didnÂt have money when I went up there, did not have a place to live," he said. "I just drove the truck over to a spot in the woods and set up camp. For the first couple weeks of school, I was actually living out of the woods.ÂŽIt was during that time that Lewis learned some of the survival skills that he would put to use years later when training for "Naked and Afraid."ÂIn the evenings, I was running down to the creek, no fishing pole, just cut a spear and chased fish down and speared them," he said. "Growing up on a farm and learning to make things work turned out to be valuable my first few weeks at Auburn.ÂŽEventually, he was taken in by a fraternity that found out about his unusual living arrangements. He eventually found work and his own place and graduated in 1991 with degrees in architecture and building sciences. He joined an architectural firm in Tallahassee, where he was worked ever since. Confronting nature au naturaleLewis made the cut for "Naked and Afraid," and will appear in a two-hour episode airing at 9 p.m. today on The Discovery Channel.Lewis was dropped into a rain forest in Nicaragua. The Cen-tral American country is dotted with lakes and volcanoes, and also is home to a variety of potentially dangerous wildlife.ÂThere was more than one occasion where predators were so close you could reach out and touch them. ThatÂs when reality hits home,ÂŽ Lewis said.Participants on the show have the option to ÂtapÂŽ if they can no longer handle the stresses of the environment and wish to end the challenge prematurely.ÂWhen things are so close that you can reach out and touch them, it really gets to your psyche," Lewis said. "Emotionally, that alone can make you tap. ThereÂs nothing you can do.ÂŽBut fear is only half of the showÂs premise. Being naked presents its own set of challenges.ÂBeing stripped of clothes, itÂs amazing how much it exposes you, and I donÂt mean just your skin," Lewis said. "It exposes who you are as a person. It removes the clothes. It removes the status. It removes the money. YouÂre going into nature and nature doesnÂt care what your back-ground is. ItÂs going to treat you exactly the same, and if youÂre not prepared itÂs going to beat you up.ÂŽ Then thereÂs the initial awk-wardness of being naked in front of a complete stranger, not to mention the camera crew and viewers all over the world.ÂYou gotta get over it and move on,ÂŽ Lewis said. ÂNot to say that IÂm comfortable and used to being naked. IÂm not. IÂve never been naked outside the house.ÂŽÂAn adventure of a lifetimeÂFormer Crestview resident James Lewis strips down for tonight's 'Naked and Afraid'Former Crestview resident James Lewis Â“ nds logs for a shelter in ÂNaked and Afraid.ÂŽ [DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS/CONTRIBUTED PHOTO]
** B18 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Champe BartonThe Gainesville SunGAINESVILLE Â„ On Labor Day weekend in 1983, Howard Appledorf's neighbor noticed the celebrity professor's back door was broken in, and it looked as though the house had been burgled.Appledorf, who had been honored by the University of Florida as Teacher of the Year in 1974 and Distinguished Lecturer in 1978, was best known as the "junkfood professor" for his defense of the nutri-tional value of fast food.Gainesville police responded to the neighbor's call. What officers found reads more like a scene from the 1980 horror film The Shining than a robbery report.They found Appledorf dead on his couch, bound and asphyxiated with his shirt off, a cigarette butt snuffed out in his stomach. Across his living room walls, the words "MURDER" and "REDRUM" had been scrawled in red. Beside the body, the murderers had laid out a dining set, apparently having eaten Subway while they watched Appledorf die.News of the death rippled through Gainesville, and then the country, morphing as quickly as it traveled: Appledorf had been asphyxiated with junk food, reporters wrote, a gruesome homage to his nickname. The murderers had written their messages in peanut butter; no Â„ ketchup; no Â„ red ink. They had killed him with a frying pan while listening to Soft Cell's 1981 hit, "Tainted Love."Every version extended the allure until the killers gave themselves up in bizarre fashion after leav-ing a sloppy trail Â„ driving Appledorf's car and using his credit card. Who were these psychopaths?Gainesville soon found out, and the answers would shock the city's 1980s con-science. This was seven years before the deaths of five students at the hands of Danny Rolling would snuff out any remaining civic naivet.Gary Bown, Paul Everson, and Shane Kennedy were a trio of gay prostitutes from San Francisco. They had traveled to Gainesville on Appledorf's invitation, staying with him at his lakefront home for two nights before their arrest for forging his signa-ture on a $900 check.While in jail, the three requested Appledorf pay their bond, threatening to contact a local reporter and out him to the community if he didn't. Kennedy was only 15 years old, after all; would Appledorf's life ever return to normal if community members knew he was gay and that he had slept with a child?Appledorf dropped the charges. As a part of the agreement, the three were to leave Gainesville perma-nently. Instead, upon their release Â„ while Appledorf boarded a plane headed for a conference in New York Â„ they walked six miles to Appledorf's home.Two days later, after Appledorf's return, officers would find his body."It was quite a shock to everybody and it was right at the start of the semester," recalls UF Emer-itus Professor and friend of Appledorf's, Robert Bates. "After his death ... (the class he taught) came almost to a screeching halt."According to Bates, Appledorf had grown the UF course, Man's Food, from a "sleepy little thing of 15 students" to a wait-list-only auditorium lecture with over 100. It was a tes-tament to his enthusiasm as a teacher, said Bates, that enrollment dipped so considerably the year of his death. "Without Howie, there was just no draw," he said.The department would eventually recover, and Man's Food today brings in hundreds of students each year. Its appeal began with Appledorf.In the months that followed Appledorf's death, Bown and Everson received life sentences for murder. But Kennedy, because he had left the house during the murder to vomit, was only sentenced to four years for grand theft. After serving his time, he returned to Manhattan, where he com-mitted a series of strange offenses, ranging from trashing a Blockbuster video display to biting a chunk out of a security guard's leg. Eventually, after multiple arrests for stalking fashion designer Todd Oldham (sending the designer condoms, erotic art, and leaves, loitering outside his studio, etc.) Kennedy was committed to a Manhattan mental hospital.35 years after murder, Appledorf lives on in class

According to the arrest affidavit Faircloth submitted that day, Diaz Jr. intentionally closed the gate on his hand Âin order to place a padlock on the gate.ÂŽ Saying that inhibited DCFÂs investigation, he entered the yard andarrested Diaz Jr. on a charge of resisting arrest without violence.The cellphone video then shows Diaz back-ing toward his front door with his pit bull in front of him. In his submitted affidavit, Faircloth claimed that in order to keep the dog from lung-ing at and attacking him, he was ÂforcedÂŽ to pepper spray it.Diaz then barricaded himself inside the house. DCF asked if Faircloth could enter the home, and he said he could not without a warrant or a well-founded fear for the childrenÂs safety, accord-ing to the report.As Diaz Jr. was taken to the Bay County Jail, his father filed a com-plaint with BCSO alleging Faircloth had trespassed, unlawfully arrested his son and subjected his dog to inhumane abuse. After hearing from other officers on the scene that Faircloth had not actually been struck by the gate, BCSO forwarded the case to internal affairs.As the investigation unfolded, internal affairs officers likewisefound that the gate did not strike Faircloth and that he did not havegrounds to enter the yard.In a February interview with Faircloth, investiga-tors questioned his story. He maintained that the gate striking him was grounds for the arrest.ÂJust when it initially closed, the, thereÂs a little metal fragments,ÂŽ Faircloth told investiga-tors. ÂÂƒ I guess that just scraped my hand, you know, and I felt it and, like I say, I didnÂt wanna make a big huge deal out of it but, you know, I went ahead and told her to place him in custody.ÂŽFaircloth also told investigators that he proceeded onto the prop-erty and sprayed the dog because he ÂdidnÂt wanna get bit.ÂŽÂThe dog was very agitated, barkinÂ Âƒ he wouldÂve bit one of us if we got any closer to him,ÂŽ Faircloth said.Investigators concluded Faircloth did not have probable cause to arrest the teen and had to trespass on the property to pepper spray the dog, which the video shows barking but restrained. Additionally Faircloth knew the arrest affidavits contained inaccurate information and did nothing to correct them, investigators found.At the conclusion of the internal investiga-tion, the State AttorneyÂs Office dropped the charge against Diaz Jr. and expunged the arrest from his record. Fair-cloth resigned in the days before BCSO sent a letter to the father, informing him of the disposition.Diaz Sr. has not been charged with any child neglect or abuse offenses.Ford said Faircloth made the wrong decision in a tense situation. How-ever, he said, filing false reports will not be toler-ated at BCSO.ÂOne of our founding values is our integrity,ÂŽ Ford said. ÂItÂs our bedrock. When it is com-promised, it undermines the trust instilled in us by the public. And that cannot be tolerated.ÂŽ CORPORALFrom Page B1time, the catfish will not be an official Florida state record, as record fish must be caught on rod and reel.But, if it had been reeled in, it would have smashed the current record: a 69.5-pound blue also caught in the Choctawhatchee. Big shWhile a fish like SingletaryÂs has never been documented in Florida, Paxton and Matt Davis, who runs the Facebook page North Florida Cat-fishing, have long suspected the deep pots of the Choctawhatchee, as well as the Apalachicola river and maybe even the Chatta-hoochee, hid a monster.It was only a matter of time. Blue catfish arenÂt native here, but worked their way from their native range of the Mississippi River to Florida, where they were first documented in the 1960s. In other places, blue catfish as large as 143 pounds have been documented, so both Davis and Paxton theorized it was just a matter of time until one in Florida grew to be that large.ÂThatÂs a good river. ThereÂs plenty of big cat,ÂŽ Davis said.The blue catfish ÂflourishÂŽ in the big rivers of Northwest Florida, Paxton said, but are rarely caught in other parts of the state. They are one of four large species Â„ also including alligator gar, Gulf sturgeon and flathead catfish (also non-native, but unlike the blue cats considered Âdetri-mentalÂŽ) Â„ found in Florida rivers. Both the alligator gar and Gulf sturgeon are protected, but itÂs open season on the catfish, which Davis, who leads guided trips, sees as an up-and-coming industry.ÂItÂs going to be as big as bass fishing,ÂŽ he said. The blue cats Âhit like a freight train. The rod will bend over, and you reel hard.ÂŽAnglers Davis is friends with have been working toward this moment Â„ a catfish over 100 pounds being caught in FloridaÂ„ for a while, deciding among themselves to release their largest catches in the hopes of creating a strong fishery.ÂTheyÂre like freshwater sharks lurking out there,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd we can have lot bigger here in Florida.ÂŽThe one Singletary caught confirmed that for him.ÂOh yeah, I was very impressed,ÂŽ he said.

ÂI couldnÂt put one bigger than that in the boat.ÂŽAfter the fish was weighed and the photos were taken, he brought it back to his house and set about the process of filleting it. Some went to his neigh-bor. Another share went to a group that holds a weekly fish fry, and the rest will be feasted on during a party this weekend, he said.ÂAll of it will be enjoyed,ÂŽ he said.In the meantime, heÂs back to his fishing routine, going whenever he wants to.

Of the twelve, five had connections to the local community, but commissioners said that was not a criteria of their search, but a reflection of the depth of talent in the area.The three selected by two or more commissioners Â„ interim city manager Jared Jones; Jonathan Hayes, former chief of staff for Congressman Steve Southerland; and McQueen Â„ all had local ties.But of those three, McQueen emerged as a clear standout and inspired Commissioner Mike Nichols to suggest forgoing the standard route of having public interviews with multiple candidates Â„ which is not required Â„ and to instead start the inter-viewing process only with McQueen.ÂI saw the leader I wanted,ÂŽ Nichols said. ÂWhy waste their time going through the process when at the end of the day I know I want McQueen?ÂŽHaligas agreed.ÂWe could have had a long drawn out process to make everybody happy, but the consensus was we were all blown away with McQueen,ÂŽ Haligas said. ÂWe would have just been wasting time.ÂŽIn his tenure in the United States Army, McQueen served as the deputy command-ing general of the United States Army in Europe, putting him in a place of senior executive leadership over 35,000 soldiers across 51 countries as well as working with foreign dig-nitaries, according to his resume. Before that, his assign-ments included oversight of infrastructure devel-opment in Iraq as well as economic development assignments and human relations.He currently is the commanding general of the 108th Training Command, with 7,200 employees across 44 states. He also is the chief financial officer for the First Baptist Church in Panama City.According to his application, he hopes to Âprovide visionary leadership setting the conditions for safe and secure business friendly environment fostering measured growth and increase property values, and level-set the infrastructure and vital services.ÂŽHaligas, Nichols and Brudnicki all said talking to McQueen would impress anyone, Âunless they have blind-ers on.ÂŽÂI had concerns,ÂŽ Haligas said.

** B22 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Seth BorensteinThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Cities and nations are looking at banning plastic straws and stirrers in hopes of addressing the worldÂs plastic pollution problem. The problem is so large, though, that scientists say thatÂs not nearly enough.Australian scientists Denise Hardesty and Chris Wilcox estimate, using trash collected on U.S. coastlines during cleanups over five years, that there are nearly 7.5 million plas-tic straws lying around AmericaÂs shorelines. They figure that means 437 million to 8.3 billion plastic straws are on the entire worldÂs coastlines.But that huge number suddenly seems small when you look at all the plastic trash bobbing around oceans. University of Georgia environmental engineering professor Jenna Jambeck calculates that nearly 9 million tons (8 million metric tons) end up in the worldÂs oceans and coastlines each year, as of 2010, according to her 2015 study in the journal Sci-ence .ThatÂs just in and near oceans. Each year more than 35 million tons (31.9 million metric tons) of plastic pollution are produced around Earth and about a quarter of that ends up around the water.ÂFor every pound of tuna weÂre taking out of the ocean, weÂre putting two pounds of plastic in the ocean,ÂŽ says ocean scientist Sherry Lippiatt, California regional coordinator for National Oceanic and Atmospheric AdministrationÂs marine debris program.Seabirds can ingest as much as 8 percent of their body weight in plas-tic, which for humans Âis equivalent to the average woman having the weight of two babies in her stomach,ÂŽ says Hardesty of AustraliaÂs Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation.Organizers of Earth Day, which is Sunday, have pro-claimed ending plastics pollution this yearÂs theme. And following in the foot-steps of several U.S. cities such as Seattle and Miami Beach, British Prime Min-ister Theresa May in April called on the nations of the British commonwealth to consider banning plastic straws, coffee stirrers and plastic swabs with cotton on the end.McDonaldÂs will test paper straws in some U.K. locations next month and keep all straws behind the counter, so customers have to ask for them. ÂTogether with our customers we can do our bit for the environment and use fewer straws,ÂŽ says Paul Pomroy, who runs the fast-food companyÂs U.K. business.The issue of straws and marine animals got more heated after a 2015 viral video showing rescuers removing a straw from a sea turtleÂs nose in graphic and bloody detail.But a ban may be a bit of a straw man in the dis-cussions about plastics pollution. Straws make up about 4 percent of the plastic trash by piece, but far less by weight.Straws on average weigh so little Â„ about one sixty-seventh of an ounce or .42 grams Â„ that all those billions of straws add up to only about 2,000 tons of the nearly 9 million tons of plastic waste that yearly hits the waters.ÂBans can play a role,ÂŽ says oceanographer Kara Lavendar Law, a coauthor with Jambeck of the 2015 Science study. ÂWe are not going to solve the problem by banning straws.ÂŽScientists say that unless you are disabled or a small child, plastic straws are generally unnecessary and a ban is start and good symbol. These items that people use for a few minutes but Âare sticking round for our lifetime and longer,ÂŽ Lippiatt says.Marcus Eriksen, an environmental scientist who co-founded the advocacy group 5 Gyres, says working on bans of straws and plastic bags would bring noticeable change. He calls plastic bags, cups and straws that break down in smaller but still harmful pieces the Âsmog of microplastics.ÂŽÂOur cities are horizon-tal smokestacks pumping out this smog into the seas,ÂŽ Eriksen says. ÂOne goal for advocacy organizations is to make that single-use culture taboo, the same way smoking in public is taboo.ÂŽScience Says: Amount of plastic pollution is hugeJenna Jambeck, an environment engineering professor at the University of Georgia, holds a plastic baggie with trash collected from a clean up at Panama Beach, Fla., at the 2015 American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in San Jose, Calif. [SETH BORENSTEIN/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] NORTH CAROLINAWarm ocean waters bring bull sharks to Outer BanksDrawn by a tempera-ture rise in coastal waters, a result of climate change, bull sharks that prefer warmth and water with lower salinity levels have taken to mating in the sound near Carolina's popular Outer Banks beach haven, and juvenile sharks are showing up where they have rarely been seen before, a new study says.Humans shouldn't be alarmed, a researcher said. The nurseries are established in remote areas such as Long Shoal River and Rose Bay, far from the beach action in Kitty Hawk and Cape Hatteras. Besides, the babies don't bite. Researcher Charles Bangley said adult bull sharks, so named because of their stocky, barrelchested build, swim along the Atlantic coast and have been spotted in the sound by fishermen for decades. But juveniles were uncommon, even in gill net surveys undertaken by scientists between 2001 and 2011.But in 2011, there was "a slightly higher number of bull sharks ... and a spike the year after," said Bangley, a marine scientist at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Maryland who was the study's lead author. The number kept rising up to 2016, establishing a pattern. "We kind of have a before and after in our data set." The study was published Monday in the journal Scientific Reports.A bull shark nursery in the Outer Banks raises eyebrows because Florida is the Atlantic's haven for bull shark nurseries. The barrier islands near Cape Canaveral are where most are born. There are also several nurseries between the Florida Keys and the Everglades and Tampa Bay. South Carolina has a massive shark nursery, but it does not have bull sharks.POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J.Governor signs drill ban to thwart Trump planOn the anniversary of the largest marine oil spill in the petroleum industry, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill Friday prohibiting oil and natural gas drilling in state waters, as well as preventing infra-structure like pipelines that could support drill-ing in more distant federal waters.It is one of numerous coastal states using state-level laws to try to thwart President Donald Trump's proposal to allow drilling in federal waters more than 3 miles offshore along most of America's coastline. States including New Jersey, New York, California, South Carolina and Rhode Island have introduced similar bills, Washington state is considering one, and Maryland introduced a bill imposing liability on anyone who causes a spill.MARINE BRIEFSA bull shark is released into the Florida waters.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 B23By Chris MooneyThe Washington PostTwo years after an undersea heat wave scalded large sections of the Great Barrier Reef, scientists have found that because so many corals died, much of the reef has likely been altered "forever.""What we just experienced is one hell of a natural selection event," said Terry Hughes, direc-tor of the Australian Research Council Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University in Queensland.In a notably blunt study in the journal Nature Â„ laden with words like "unprecedented," "radical" and "catastrophic" Â„ Hughes and 15 colleagues report that in 2016 alone, about 30 percent of the Great Barrier Reef's corals were lost, with the most severe damage in the isolated northern sector. (In 2017, another ocean heat wave claimed another roughly 20 percent of corals, Hughes said.)Many corals died faster than expected and at a lower level of sus-tained heat than had been predicted to be deadly. The researchers add that because losses in certain spe-cies were much greater than in others, the entire ecological iden-tity of much of the reef system has likely changed. In particular, elabo-rate branching corals that provide key fish habitat are being replaced by bulky, less intricate "dome-shaped" corals, Hughes said.And because it takes about 10 years for even the fastest growing corals to recover, the study warns that there is probably no reversing the sweeping change to the most damaged sectors of the world's largest barrier reef. Not before yet another bleaching event occurs.That certainly doesn't mean the end of the reef as a whole. The south, in particular, escaped much of the bleaching in 2016 and 2017. But it does mean that much of the reef will probably shift into a new ecological state with a less diverse, but more resilient, set of corals."The 2016 marine heatwave has triggered the initial phase of that transition on the northern, most-pristine region of the Great Barrier Reef, changing it forever," reads the study, written by scien-tists from numerous Australian institutions.Warming has ÂforeverÂ changed Great Barrier ReefPauline Hanson listens to marine scientist Alison Jones, left, as she displays a piece of coral on the Great Barrier Reef off Great Keppel Island, Queensland, Australia.

Griffin, whose most recent assistant position was at Arnold, has been working the hallways at Bozeman as well as scouting the Bucks other athletic teams to find more athletes with which to build a program.

Pensacola is just 28-22, but is still playing.ÂPensacola played well; for us it was too little too late,ÂŽ Gulf Coast coach Beth Wade said.The Lady Pirates bunched four of their eight hits in the second inning, and the last one by Soren-son was a grand-slam home run to left-center field.ÂYou just canÂt turn it on at the end of games and expect to win, and Pen-sacola played well,ÂŽ Wade said.That was more appropri-ate than writing an epitaph steeped in Victorian literature. The Lady Pirates built a 4-0 lead and fought off repeated attempts by the Lady Commodores to overcome the deficit.Pensacola again took advantage of some faulty Gulf Coast baserunning to turn two double plays. It also used a great catch by left fielder Lia Johnson to deny a run and probably deprive speedy Jamilah Johnson of a triple in the second inning.The Lady Pirates then ended the game with a diving catch by second baseman Shelby Thorns-berry that punctuated their effort that produced three consecutive wins here over two days.Pensacola won all five games it played at Joe Tom King Field this spring, and claimed victory in five of the seven games it played against Gulf Coast. So much for the disparity in won-loss records.Starting pitcher Amie Hutchison and mostly reliever Chandler Sparkman combined to keep Pensacola scoreless after the second inning, and Gulf Coast chipped away at the deficit.The Lady Commodores scored twice in the fourth against Pensacola starter Jensen Strickland. Hutchison singled, Kristina Warford reached on an error and Payton Burton sacrificed them into scor-ing position.Amanda Dermody dropped a run-scoring single into left field, and after Carson Hussey popped out Jamilah John-sonÂs infield single made it 4-2.Kaeleen Koehler relieved for the Lady Pirates in the fifth inning and held Gulf Coast scoreless until the seventh. With two outs, Kaylee Raines reached on an error by Thornsberry and Sparkman drilled a long RBI single that plated courtesy runner Sam Sisco.ThornsberryÂs diving catch thwarted Hutchison and ended the Lady CommodoresÂ season. Had they rallied to win, they immediately would have played a third and deciding game to determine which ballclub advanced to Longwood.SorensenÂs homer was her fifth of the season and came on a 3-2 fastball after Hutchison had missed the zone with a pair of change-ups. Alexis Guzman was the only Pensacola player with two hits, five of their eight hits not leaving the infield.Jamilah Johnson, Spark-man and Dermody each had two of Gulf CoastÂs nine hits.

ÂItÂs difficult not having (the players) in the spring, but you have to prepare for it,ÂŽ Griffin said. ÂWith the offense IÂm installing itÂs all brand new anyway. WeÂre not going to get in-depth, but want to get the basic stuff in and the language down.ÂŽGriffin will revamp the BucksÂ run-first approach to more of a spread attack, based on personnel adjust-ments. He said he wants a 50-50 balance on runs to pass plays.He expects to have 30-35 players in tow when prac-tice opens. Bozeman will host Rutherford and North Bay Haven for its jamboree. The following night on May 18, Mosley, Bay and Arnold will square off. RutherfordRutherford was 3-6 in Loren TillmanÂs first season. Two things that have increased since Till-manÂs arrival are optimism for the future and program numbers.ÂWeÂll dress probably about 50 in the spring; weÂve got some kids with academic issues that wonÂt dress,ÂŽ Tillman said. ÂAnd weÂll probably have 20-plus coming over from Everitt for a couple weeks so weÂll have about 70 out there.ÂŽTillman said the middle school players wonÂt prac-tice directly with the high school athletes, but will become assimilated into the program. He said about 45 players are returning from 2017, but that doesnÂt mean there arenÂt positions to restock.One of them is quar-terback, where KD Heard was most of RutherfordÂs offense last season.ÂYeah, thatÂs one thing weÂve got to do, but weÂve also got to replace a lot on the offensive line and our linebackers,ÂŽ Tillman said.Where the Rams will be vastly improved from last spring is the speed with which they will practice.ÂI think itÂs going to be leaps and bounds,ÂŽ Tillman said. ÂWeÂll probably not even look like the same program.ÂŽTexas transfer Reggie Tubbs will be a senior in the fall and has some experience at being a var-sity quarterback, Tillman said. The Rams also will give rising senior Nathan Rennie, currently play-ing baseball, a look, even if it isnÂt until 7-on-7 competitions during the summer. Another rising senior, Donovan Smith, was a slot receiver last fall but will take some reps at quarterback.And Tillman isnÂt dismissing two athletic sophomores, Dillyn Richardson and Janathan Proctor, whoÂll probably be playing somewhere if not behind center.ÂLast year I talked to coaches constantly telling them that weÂre pouring concrete for the founda-tion, just so we can put up the walls and put the roof on later,ÂŽ Tillman said.ÂTheyÂre (players) going to be able to handle more complex things. We donÂt need to continue to do stuff the same way cause theyÂll be ready for more.ÂŽ GRIFFINFrom Page C1

Gets the ball out quickly and decisively. Weaknesses: Undersized. Elusiveness and mobility that was a plus in college might not translate to the NFL.

Gone by: Pick No. 5 or 6.Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama >>> 6-1, 201 Strengths: Versatility, intelligence, instincts, leadership and smooth athleticism. Weaknesses: The nits to pick: He is not an explosive hitter and maybe he could use a few extra pounds. Gone by: Only the NFLÂs love affair with quarterbacks keeps him around past top Â“ve.

City FC at PortlandON THE AIR By Mike CorderThe Associated PressAMSTERDAM Â„ Amnesty International gave former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick its Ambassador of Conscience Award on Saturday for his kneeling protest of racial injustice that launched a sports movement and might have cost him his job.Onetime San Francisco 49ers teammate Eric Reid presented Kaepernick with the award during a ceremony in Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands.In his acceptance speech, the awardwinner described police killings of African Amer-icans and Latinos in the United States as lawful lynchings.ÂRacialized oppres-sion and dehumanization is woven into the very fabric of our nation Â„ the effects of which can be seen in the lawful lynch-ing of black and brown people by the police, and the mass incarceration of black and brown lives in the prison industrial complex,ÂŽ Kaepernick said.Kaepernick first took a knee during the pre-game playing of the American national anthem when he was with the 49ers in 2016 to protest police brutality.ÂHow can you stand for the national anthem of a nation that preaches and propagates, Âfreedom and justice for all,Â that is so unjust to so many of the people living there?ÂŽ he said at SaturdayÂs award ceremony.Other players joined his protest in the 2016 season, drawing the ire of President Donald Trump, who called for team owners to fire such players.In response to the player demonstrations, the NFL agreed to commit $90 million over the next seven years to social justice causes in a plan.Kaepernick wasnÂt signed for the 2017 season following his release in San Francisco.Reid, a safety who is now a free agent, continued KaepernickÂs protests by kneeling during the anthem last season. Reid has said he will take a different approach in 2018. Kaepernick paid trib-ute to his friend for his own role in the protest movement.ÂEric introducing me for this prestigious award brings me great joy,ÂŽ Kaepernick said. ÂBut I am also pained by the fact that his taking a knee, and demonstrating courage to protect the rights of black and brown people in Amer-ica, has also led to his ostracization from the NFL when he is widely recognized as one of the best competitors in the game and in the prime of his career.ÂŽAccepting award, Kaepernick decries Âlawful lynchingÂ
** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 C5 SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFOAKLAND, CALIF.Curry cleared for modiÂ“ ed practice after knee injuryGolden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been cleared to take part in modified practices but will be out at least one more week with a left knee injury.The Warriors said Curry was examined by the teamÂs medical staff Friday and is making progress in recovering from the grade 2 left MCL sprain that has sidelined him since March 23.Curry will be allowed to take part in modified practices beginning Sat-urday and increase his on-court rehabilitation. He will be re-evaluated again in one week. The Warriors lead San Antonio 3-0 in their first-round series. If they advance on Sunday, the second round could start as early as April 28.DALLASEx-playerÂs 1952 Mantle card sells for $2.88MA Mickey Mantle base-ball card from 1952 was sold at auction for $2.88 million, falling just short of setting a record.The card, sold by former NFL lineman Evan Mathis through Heritage Auctions, earned the second-highest figure for a card at an auction, trailing only the $3.12 million paid for a 1909 Honus Wagner card two years ago.Issued as part of its first full set of baseball cards by Topps, the Mantle card is one of six versions to have been rated a Mint 9 by PSA, one of the leading sports memorabilia authentica-tors, with three others having earned a Mint 10 rating.Mathis decided to sell the card, which was estimated to be valued at $3.5 million by Heritage, to free up money so he could move his wife and daughters to Tennessee to be closer to where he grew up in Alabama.MONACONadal wants extra practice after reaching Â“ nalRafael NadalÂs priority after reaching his 12th Monte Carlo Masters final was to whip out his phone and frantically text coach Carlos Moya.Despite a comfortable 6-4, 6-1 win against No. 5-ranked Grigor Dimitrov, he had a pressing concern given how quickly he was texting.What frantic emergency could command such attention?ÂI was texting Carlos to tell him that we need to book a court quick,ÂŽ Nadal said. ÂI wanted to hit some forehands win-ners that I think I need for tomorrow.ÂŽSo the top-ranked Nadal, a 10-time French Open champion with 75 career titles, hurried to another clay court just for forehand practice ahead of Sun-dayÂs final against Kei Nishikori, an oppo-nent he has beaten nine times out of 11.While it may seem absurd, it is a reminder of the relentless perfec-tionist Nadal is even on his best surface. The Associated Press By John CoonThe Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY Â„ When Derrick Favors can find ways to impose his will, good things happen for the Utah Jazz.Favors has been quietly, albeit effectively, getting it done against the Oklahoma City Thunder, playing in the shadows of Utah rookie of the year candidate Donovan Mitchell and Jazz center Rudy Gobert.But a healthy Favors is making an impact.The Jazz have returned to Utah with the series tied 1-1, thanks in no small part to Favors. He tallied career playoff highs of 20 points and 16 rebounds in UtahÂs 102-95 road win on Wednesday.Jazz coach Quin Snyder will start Favors at power forward along-side Gobert beginning with Game 3 on Saturday. But he will also utilize him as a backup center to spell Gobert. Favors has done his part to make playing alongside Gobert work by extending his shooting range to improve offensive spacing. He has also made himself an effective roller.ÂHeÂs always been a good pick-and-roll player, regardless of Âposition,ÂÂŽ Snyder said. ÂWeÂve never really thought of him as one position or the other. WeÂve thought of him as a basketball player and tried to have him understand his strengths and then play to his strengths.ÂŽIndeed. In the first two playoff games against the Thunder, Favors is averaging 13.5 points on 52 percent shooting and 10.5 rebounds.It is exactly the type of impact Favors envisioned making when fighting to reclaim his body from knee and back injuries that afflicted him for the better part of two seasons.ÂIÂm back to being 100 percent,ÂŽ Favors said. ÂBack healthy. Back moving the way I know I can move and playing the way I know I can play. ItÂs a big advantage for us.ÂŽThereÂs no question having Favors at full strength has improved UtahÂs ability to counter a Thunder team featuring the potent trio of Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. The veteran forward/ center offers versatility on both ends of the court honed through playing multiple positions as cir-cumstances dictate.Crashing the boards definitely tops the list when checking off FavorsÂ strengths. He ranks second on the Jazz roster in rebounding behind Gobert with 7.2 rebounds per game.When Favors is active on the glass, it can change the direction of a game for Utah. In Game 2 against Oklahoma City, he grabbed eight offensive rebounds through the first 2 quarters. By contrast, the Thunder totaled six offensive boards as a team in the same stretch.JazzÂs Favors Â100 percentÂ back San Jose SharksÂ Marcus Sorensen is defended by Detroit Red WingsÂ Trevor Daley during the second period of a March 12 hockey game in San Jose, Calif. Eric Fehr and Sorensen spent most of the season toiling in the AHL, just waiting for their chance. That opportunity has arrived in the playoffs for San Jose. [MARCIO JOSE SANCHEZ/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO]By Josh DubowThe Associated PressSAN JOSE, Calif. Â„ Eric Fehr and Marcus Sorensen spent most of the season toil-ing in the AHL, just waiting for their chance.That opportunity has arrived in the playoffs for San Jose and those two fourth-line forwards are a major reason why the Sharks swept Anaheim to advance to a second-round series against Vegas.Fehr scored one goal while anchoring the fourth line and Sorensen had three as San JoseÂs bottom group of forwards that also includes Melker Karlsson matched the scoring output of the entire Anaheim team in the series.ÂItÂs awesome to see,ÂŽ top-line forward Evander Kane said. ÂIt really gives a big spark to our group when you see those guys go out there and play in the offensive zone, create scoring chances and score goals. That really adds to our group. It takes pressure off us as top play-ers to know all four lines can score.ÂŽThe deadline addition of Kane provided the Sharks a major spark down the stretch but a lower-profile deal a week earlier for Fehr was also key to San JoseÂs success.Fehr stepped right in as San JoseÂs fourth-line center, giving coach Peter DeBoer the confidence to roll four lines and keep his top players fresh. It was a surprising development since FehrÂs career looked to be nearing its end after 12 seasons when he cleared waivers for Toronto back in November and got loaned to AnaheimÂs AHL affiliate in San Diego.He remained there hoping to return to the playoffs where he helped Pittsburgh win the Stanley Cup against the Sharks two years ago. His opportunity came when the Sharks dealt a 2020 seventh-round pick for him.ÂThatÂs what kept me play-ing, the chance to come in here and play some playoff hockey,ÂŽ he said. ÂThatÂs the best time of the year. This is what you play for.ÂŽWhile Fehr is on the back end of his career, Sorensen should be ascending. He was expected to make the team out of training camp after playing well in the postseason last year against Edmonton.But Sorensen was beaten out by Barclay Goodrow and spent most of the season in the minors or as a healthy scratch before playing the final five games of the regular season after Goodrow broke a finger.Sorensen showed enough there for DeBoer to have confi-dence to use him in the playoffs and the move paid off with him scoring goals in the final three games of the sweep.ÂI think heÂs a player who enjoys playing at this time of the year,ÂŽ teammate Logan Couture said. ÂHe plays a hard game but this is probably the best hockey IÂve seen him play, at least the NHL level because heÂs making a dif-ference every shift.ÂŽThe Sharks arenÂt alone in getting key contributions from fourth liners, whether itÂs two goals from ColoradoÂs Gabriel Bourque, a key empty-net goal from Nash-villeÂs Ryan Hartman, strong overall play from Washington fourth-line center Jay Beagle, or BostonÂs Sean Kuraly chip-ping in with a goal and two assists.After missing the opener with an upper-body injury, Beagle scored a goal in Game 2 against Columbus and has won 71 percent of his faceoffs in his three games in the series after Washington lost nine of 10 defensive-zone draws late in a Game 1 loss.ÂEspecially this time of year, Beags is an all-in guy, a true pro, a buy that will give up his body to make a difference,ÂŽ coach Barry Trotz said. ÂFor me, itÂs a mentality. ThereÂs other guys that can probably kill (penalties) as well as Jay, but he pulls people in the fight. And when it comes to the penalty kill unit, he has a lot of pride, and heÂll pull the other guys in.ÂŽThe Wild got no goals or assists from some of their most skilled forwards, Jason Zucker, Nino Niederreiter and Charlie Coyle, one reason they lost to Winnipeg in five games.. But their fourth line was a valuable asset, provid-ing more than just a couple of token checks before retreat-ing to the bench. Daniel Winnik (one assist), Joel Eriksson Ek (one assist) and Marcus Foligno (one goal) gave the Wild plenty of pro-ductive shifts against the Jets.ÂItÂs a really tough job for a big man to sit on the bench and come out with a lot of energy,ÂŽ coach Bruce Boudreau said. ÂEvery big guy that IÂve had has always said, ÂIÂve got to get into it. IÂve got to get into it. I canÂt sit.ÂŽÂSharksÂ fourth liners help team advanceSan Jose Sharks center Eric Fehr is congratulated by teammates after scoring a goal against the Anaheim Ducks during the second period of Game 3 of a Â“ rst-round playoff series, Monday in San Jose, Calif.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 C7 The Associated PressSAN ANTONIO Â„ Zach Johnson birdied the par-5 18th Saturday at the Valero Texas Open for a share of the third-round lead with Andrew Landry, a stroke ahead of record-setting Trey Mullinax.Johnson shot a 4-under 68, holing a 10-footer on 18 to match Landry at 13-under 203 at TPC San AntonioÂs AT&T Oaks. Landry birdied the 16th and 17th in a 67.Johnson won the event in 2008 and 2009, the last two times it was played at LaCantera. The 42-year-old Iowan is trying to win for the first time since the 2015 British Open.ÂIÂve got 18 holes to get to that point,ÂŽ John-son said. ÂIÂve got to do exactly what I did on the back side and that was give myself opportunities on every hole. IÂm putting great, IÂm seeing the lines well, my caddieÂs reading the greens well, so itÂs just a matter of committing and executing down the stretch.ÂŽThe 30-year-old Landry is winless on the tour.ÂIÂm a good putter and I just need to give myself a lot of oppor-tunities tomorrow like I did today,ÂŽ Landry said. ÂIÂll be looking forward to tomorrow.ÂŽMullinax had a course-record 62. He played the back nine in 7-under 29, going 6 under on the last five with eagles on the par-5 14th and 18th and birdies on 16 and 17. He also birdied Nos. 10 and 12 and bogeyed 11.ÂItÂs probably one of the best rounds IÂve ever had,ÂŽ Mullinax said. ÂTo go out there and shoot 62 on a hard golf course is really good.ÂŽJohnson played the front nine in even par with two birdies and two bogeys. He birdied Nos. 11, 14, 15 and 18 on the back nine.ÂDifferent wind today early on, misjudged some numbers, misjudged some wind, made some bad swings, all of the above,ÂŽ Johnson said. ÂBut truth-fully, my short game was actually pretty good, my putting was great. I missed some putts, but I hit some really good ones, hit some lines and I gave myself opportuni-ties especially on the back side.ÂŽLandry had a bogey-free round.ÂI just did everything really good,ÂŽ Landry said. ÂI was staying patient and just trying to make a bunch of pars. This golf course can come up and bite you in a heartbeat.ÂŽRyan Moore was two strokes back at 11 under after a 70. Sean OÂHair had a 65 to join 2015 champion Jimmy Walker (67), Chris Kirk (68) and 2013 winner Martin Laird (69) at 9 under.ÂI just feel like IÂm getting closer and closer to playing better and better golf, more solid golf, putting rounds together,ÂŽ Walker said. ÂIÂm excited for the opportunity tomorrow.ÂŽMullinax has made 42 of 44 putts from inside 10 feet this week.ÂThey just kind of remind me of greens from home,ÂŽ Mullinax said. ÂMy caddie, David (Flynn), has been read-ing them really well. We trusted each other on our reads and IÂve been hitting good putts. Been working hard on putting on the weeks off that IÂve had so itÂs good to see some results.ÂŽThe 25-year-old former Alabama player chipped in for the eagle on 14 and the birdie on the par-3 16th.ÂIt was just a little bit down the hill,ÂŽ he said about the 16th. ÂAll you had to do was just land it just past that little light grass spot. My caddie told me just read it like a putt, so I tried to just read it like a putt and it went in.ÂŽOn 18, he hit a 3-iron from 255 yards to 15 feet to set up his eagle putt. He broke the course record of 63 set by Matt Every in 201 and matched by Laird in 2013. The tournament record is 60 at LaCantera, by Bart Bryant in 2004 and Johnson in 2009.EUROPEAN TOUR: A birdie on the last hole gave Alvaro Quiros a one-shot lead to take into the Â“ nal round of the Trophee Hassan II. QuirosÂ birdie four on No. 18 allowed the Spanish golfer to sign for a level-par 72 to stay at 7-under par overall and clear of four players queued up in second place. South African pair Erik van Rooyen and Christiaan Bezuidenhout, FranceÂs Alexander Levy, and FinlandÂs Mikko Ilonen were just a shot behind on 6 under heading into the last day at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat. Quiros is a seven-time winner on the European Tour but went six years without a victory until last year and his triumph at the Rocco Forte Open in Italy. PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS: Defending champions Vijay Singh and Carlos Franco took the thirdround lead in the windy Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf. Singh and Franco shot a 7-under 47 in wind gusting to 20 mph on the Top of the Rock par-3 course to get to 19-under 145, a stroke ahead of the teams of David TomsSteve Flesch and Paul Broadhurst-Kirk Triplett. Toms and Flesch also shot 47, and Broadhurst and Triplett had a 33 on the 13-hole Mountain Top par-3 course. The teams will Â“ nish play Sunday at Top of the Rock, again playing the front nine in alternate shot and the back nine in better ball. Singh and Franco are trying to become the Â“ rst to successfully defend a title since Jim Colbert and Andy North in 2001. Singh won the Toshiba Classic in March for his Â“ rst individual senior title.Johnson, Landry share Texas Open advantageZach Johnson tees off on the seventh hole during the third round Saturday at the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio, Texas. [MICHAEL THOMAS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] then never let anyone contend when the race went back to green for the final time on lap 400.The end was a bitter pill for Truex, who ran up front all night. He and Busch were dueling after a restart with 23 laps to go, and after Busch pulled away, Truex seemed to be closing ground until a spin by David Ragan brought out the yellow.All the front-runners pitted, and while TruexÂs team struggled mightily in the No. 1 pit stall, Truex could only watch as contender after contender beat him off pit road. He lost at least seven spots by the time NASCAR had sorted out the next resstart starting order.It marked the 75th time he has raced on a short track in NASCARÂs premier series, and perhaps the best chance heÂs had in those 17 chance to come away with a victory, but instead he dropped to 0-for-75 on short tracks for his career. NASCARContinued from C1 The Associated PressMIAMI Â„ Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid certainly arenÂt acting like playoff first-timers, and JJ Redick provided the veteran leadership that Philadelphia so desperately needed.The 76ers might very well be the NBAÂs team of the future.And that future might be starting sooner than many envisioned.Simmons was the first rookie to since Magic Johnson in 1980 to have a playoff triple-double, Redick led Philadelphia with 24 points and the 76ers moved one win from the second round by topping the Miami Heat 106-102 on Saturday to take a 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series.ÂIÂm shocked that we won this game,ÂŽ 76ers coach Brett Brown said. ÂWe really didnÂt have a right to win the game.ÂŽ Goran Dragic scored 20, James Johnson had 15 and Hassan Whiteside finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds for Miami, which now needs to pull off some history. The Heat have erased a 3-1 deficit only once, in 1997 against New York.ÂWe all feel that weÂre this close,ÂŽ said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, holding his thumb and index finger maybe a millimeter apart. ÂThatÂs what makes this game tough. They made bigger plays than us in the fourth quarter.ÂŽ PELICANS 131, TRAIL BLAZERS 123: Anthony Davis scored 33 of his franchise playoff-record 47 points in the second half, and New Orleans completed a Â“ rst-round playoff sweep of Portland with a victory. Jrue Holiday capped his 41-point performance with an 18-foot pull-up jumper that gave the Pelicans a six-point lead with 40 seconds left. Rajon Rondo added 16 assists, and Davis also had 11 rebounds and three blocks for New Orleans, which is moving on to the second round of the playoffs for only the second time since the NBA returned to the city 16 seasons ago. C.J. McCollum scored 38 for the Trail Blazers, which responded to a blowout loss in Game 3 by keeping Game 4 close until the Â“ nal minute. Al-Farouq Aminu scored 27, Damian Lillard added 18 points and Jusuf Nurkic had 18 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out. TIMBERWOLVES 121, ROCKETS 105: Jimmy Butler hit four 3-pointers among his 28 points and Karl-Anthony Towns snapped back from a bad start to the series with 18 points and 16 rebounds, leading Minnesota past Houston in Game 3 for their Â“ rst postseason victory in 14 years. Jeff Teague scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins pitched in 20 points with another four 3-pointers, helping the Timberwolves match the Â“ re-away Rockets from behind the arc and cruise down the stretch behind a 50 percent shooting performance. Derrick Rose added 17 points off the bench for the Wolves, who will try to even the series with a win in Game 4 on Monday night. James Harden led the way with 29 points, but Chris Paul fouled out with 17 points and the Rockets went just 15 for 41 from 3-point range.76ers take control, top Heat for 31 series leadThe Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. Â„ The Tampa Bay Lightning understand what it takes to be successful in the Stanley Cup playoffs.ÂYou need your best players to be the best players, and they rose to the occasion,ÂŽ coach Jon Cooper said Saturday after the top seed in the Eastern Conference beat the New Jersey Devils 3-1, ending their first-round series in five games.ÂPeople are going to look at this series and say: ÂOh, 4-1. Tampa took it to them.Â Anybody that was actually watching these games knew clearly thatÂs not what happened in this series,ÂŽ Cooper added. ÂIt was fought from the drop of the puck to the end. We just happened to get big goals at the right time.ÂŽNikita Kucherov scored his 27th career postseason goal and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 26 shots for the Lightning, who advanced to a secondround matchup against either the Boston Bruins or Toronto Maple Leafs.Kucherov, the NHLÂs third-leading scorer during the regular season with 100 points, had five goals and five assists in the five games, setting a franchise for points in a playoff series. He also tied Vincent Lecavalier for second-place on the clubÂs all-time postsea-son scoring list.ÂI thought he elevated (his play) throughout the series, no ques-tion,ÂŽ Cooper said of the 24-year-old, two-time All-Star, who has 27 goals and 25 assists in 50 career playoff games.CAPITALS 4, BLUE JACKETS 3, OT: Nicklas Backstrom scored his second goal of the game 11:53 into overtime to give Washington a victory over Columbus and a 3-2 lead in the Â“ rst-round playoff series. Braden Holtby made 16 of his 39 saves in the third period to help Washington get to overtime. Four of Â“ ve games between the teams have gone past regulation making fatigue a factor for Game 6 Monday night in Columbus. Evgeny Kuznetsov and T.J. Oshie scored along with Backstrom in regulation for the Capitals, who became the Â“ rst home team this series to win a home game. Holtby has been in net for WashingtonÂs three consecutive victories after replacing Philipp Grubauer in Game 2, stopping 102 of 108 shots to turn the tide. Fellow Vezina Trophywinning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky allowed a soft goal to Kuznetsov as one of his four on 29 shots in the loss. Matt Calvert scored shorthanded and on a breakaway and Oliver Bjorkstrand had a deÂ” ection goal for Columbus.Lightning beat Devils, end seriesNew Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider stretches out to stop a shot by Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos during the second period of Game 5 of an NHL Â“ rst-round playoff series Saturday in Tampa, Fla.

Each Sunday in this space, weÂll write about one of the topics important to our areaÂs core. Email story ideas to Jan Waddy at firstname.lastname@example.org. INSIDEYou Can Help D3 BotanistÂs Corner D3 Pets of the Week D4 Community Connections D4 Society D5 WhatÂs Happening D6 Sunday Crossword D6 TODAYThe 12th annual Cajun Fest wraps up from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today at Schooners in Panama City Beach with live music, a craw sh boil and kidsÂ activities on the beach. COMING UPThe Panama City Beach Kids Fishing Rodeo for ages 16 and younger is from 9 a.m. to noonSaturday atthe Youth Fishing Pond at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach. Free; lunch provided. Details,850-233-5045 Special to The News HeraldPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ Gulf Power and other utility companies across the country celebrated National Lineworker Appreciation Day on April 18, but itÂs also the families who love and support the linemen that make it possible to keep the power flowing every day.Mike Wilkes, a lineman for Gulf Power in Panama City Beach,had just one promise to fulfill after spending 60 days in Puerto Rico Â„ not miss his daughterÂs birthday. Wilkeshelped restore power and rebuild the countryÂs electrical infrastructure after back-to-back hurricanes left most of the island in the dark.ÂWe talked about it as a family and decided it was the right thing to do to go and help get the lights back on for everybody on the island,ÂŽ said Wilkes, who has been working the lines for nearly 19 years at home and around the country. ÂMy daughter AvaÂs only request was that I make it home for her birthday.ÂŽKeeping thelights on for millions of Americans is a physically demanding and sometimes dangerous jobs. They could risk electrocution handling thousands of volts of electricity, or they could fall from utility poles while they inspect and repair power lines daily. TheyÂre the first responders who are called out during and after storms, working to restore power in harsh conditions. There is not a time when lineworkers are not on call.The hours are long, and they often have to spend time away from their families for weeks, missing important milestones and holidays in order to help restore power in other parts of the country. ItÂs that loving and supportive family back home that helps them safely concentrate on keeping the power flowing to customersÂ homes and businesses each day.Mike WilkesÂ wife, April, and their two daughters, Olivia and Ava, have been his biggest supporters since he became a lineworker in 1999. The couple, who will celebrate 18 years of marriage this year, depend on each other knowing the job requires a certain amount of sacrifice for both. ÂShe really is my rock and without her I couldnÂt do this job,ÂŽ Mike said during a recent interview surrounded by his family. ÂItÂs their love and support that keeps me going.ÂŽApril knows all about the dangers of the job, a job so hazardous that it is considered the 10th most dangerous and deadly job in the U.S. ItÂs something thatÂs on her mind when-ever her husband leaves the house, but something she has to hide for the sake of her children.ÂWhen I worry about his safety, I know that they all watch out for each other and know they all truly treat each other as brothers and family,ÂŽ April said.She also knows how ÂsafetyÂŽ driven Gulf Power is and the protocols they follow are for a good reason, a reason that brings her hus-band home safely.ÂBeing a linemanÂs wife is hard at times, but I know he loves his job, especially when he and the other line-men are responsible for getting the lights back on after a storm or in the middle of the night when there is an auto accident and a pole goes down,ÂŽ April said. ÂI do worry about him, but IÂve learned to compartmentalize my fears, so I donÂt worry the girls, and I know how important it is to him to be sure others are safe and have power to operate air conditioning, heat, and oxygen machines. Those are the life and death things he thinks about when trouble calls come in anytime of the day and night.ÂŽApril knew what is was like having a family member as a lineworker even before she married Mike. Her grandfather worked for a utility company in Maine, and her aunt and uncle also worked as lineworkers for a New England communica-tions company. Even though she heard many of the horror stories from her relatives, it was April, ironically,who gave Mike the nudge to go from an electricianto a lineworker.ÂI helped him navigate the application process, but it was Mike that passed all of the tests and interviews and truly found who he was working for Gulf Power Â„ a lineman,ÂŽ she said.Mike and many of the other 184 line workers at Gulf Power are deployed for storm duty to places not only in Northwest Flor-ida and around the state, butalso Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Texas and New York. Gulf Power crews have been deployed more than 40 times since 2008 to help other utility companies get the lights back on after major storms. ÂI realize when he is away how lucky I am,ÂŽ she said. ÂI do get lonely when he is gone, but it is something you learn to live with. I definitely stay busy and try to keep a normal routine for the girls which helps make the time go by faster.ÂŽBut this couple knows whatÂs in store career-wise for Mike Â„ 20 more years of Life on the lineFor Gulf Power lineworkers, itÂs a family a airMike Wilkes, lineworker with Gulf Power, credits his family Â„ his wife, April, and daughters, Olivia and Ava Â„ for helping him safely concentrate on keeping the power Â” owing to customersÂ homes and businesses each and every day.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 D3PANAMA CITY Â„Two palms presently found in localsnurseries are Pygmy Date Palm (Phoenix roebelenii) and Queen Palm (Syagrus romanzoffiana), which are considered not hardy forthe area. In the bulletin "Palms for North Florida ENH1094," published by the UF/ IFAS Extension, more than 20 palms are recommended forthis area. If you decide to use the two above in your landscaping, they will need protection from the cold. The plant you see against the dark fence is Mock Orange (Philadelphus coronarius), sometimes called English Dogwood. This plant is native to southern Europe. It grows 10 to 12 feettall and wide with clusters of fragrant, 1-inch flowers. I have one in my yard and I cut it back to about 6 feet each winter because the flowers appear on new growth. Listed are shrubs that bloom in the summer. (1) Hydrangea paniculata "Grandiflora," which is a tough leggy plant that will thrive in most shady areas and hasbloom heads that turn pink as the plant matures; (2) Oakleaf Hydrangea (H. quercifolia) is my favorite because of the beautiful blooms that appear in late summer; (3) Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus) with fragrant flowers of blue or white; and (4) Harlequin Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii)inmany forms with variegated foliage. This is a good time to plant flowering trees for your yard. Southern Magnolia (M. grandiflora) grows in full sun or partial shade. The negative of this plant is at this time of year the tree pushes off last year's leaves as new ones appear; it can be a messy tree. Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida) flowers in early April. Fringe Tree (chionanthus virginicus) has clouds of fleecy white, softly fragrant flowers. Also, many varieties of Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) are available in our nurseries with colors ranging from white, pink, dark purple, bright purple, yellow-orange, red, and reddish yellow. A plant I just read about in our local nursery is Crape Jasmine (Tabernaemontana divaricata), which is a fast growing shrub that grows3 to 4 feethigh and wide and hasa beautiful white bloom.

Congress authorized creation of the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry, also known as the "Rough Riders." On this date: In 1864, Congress authorized the use of the phrase "In God We Trust" on U.S. coins. In 1889, the Oklahoma Land Rush began at noon as thousands of homesteaders staked claims. In 1938, 45 workers were killed in a coal mine explosion at Keen Mountain in Buchanan County, Virginia.

In 1954, the publicly televised sessions of the Senate ArmyMcCarthy hearings began. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson opened the New York World's Fair. In 1970, millions of Americans concerned about the environment observed the Â“ rst "Earth Day."

ÂAndrewÂŽ and I have been dating for almost a year, still learning about each other and building a foundation for our relationship. My family recently told some other family members that I am Âtoo prettyÂŽ to be dating Andrew and I Âcan do much better.ÂŽ My younger sister even said Andrew isnÂt good-looking enough and I need to find someone who matches my beauty as well as my heart. Shocked, I told her Andrew has been wonderful to me and my kids, and his looks donÂt bother me. My last boyfriend was very good-looking but turned out to be a horrible person. He assaulted me, dumped me on the side of a highway and stole my car. Fortunately, a passerby stopped and helped me. After getting a restraining order and going to court, I decided my next boyfriend would be a good-hearted man with character regardless of his looks. Should I confront my family about their comments? Â„ GENUINELY HAPPYDEAR GENUINELY HAPPY: Mark Twain once said, ÂIt takes your enemy and your friend, working together, to hurt you to the heart: the one to slander you and the other to get the news to you.ÂŽ I think it applies here. Do not ÂconfrontÂŽ your family. Just tell them you feel that their comments are shallow and hurtful, and reflect more on them than on your boyfriend.DEAR ABBY: IÂm a 13-yearold girl. My friend ÂBaileyÂŽ and I both like the same boy but didnÂt want him to come between us. We made a pact that we wouldnÂt ask him out. Bailey can be selfish, and I know sheÂd say yes if he asked her. When I told her my friendship with her meant more to me than the boy, she laughed and said that meant sheÂd get him. IÂm not sure what to do. I have liked him longer than she has, and I think he likes me back. He knows me much better at least. If he asks me, should I say yes and risk my friend getting hurt, even though I know sheÂd say yes in my place? Â„ A READER IN MISSOURIDEAR READER: When you told Bailey your friendship with her meant more than the boy, her response showed that your friendship is less important to her than he is, and the pact means nothing to her. If the boy likes you, he will probably ask you out to do something. If he does Â„ and your parents agree Â„ you should accept. I say this because I donÂt think Bailey is a true friend at all.DEAR ABBY: If someone organizes a trip for a nonprofit organization and charges a fee, and later finds out that, due to certain circumstances, the trip didnÂt cost as much, should the money be refunded to the people who took the trip or be given to the organization? Â„ JUST ASKING IN NEW JERSEYDEAR JUST: Because the trip was under the auspices of the organization, return the money to the organization and let them decide whether it should be refunded to the individuals. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby. com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.DEAR ABBYFamily judges pretty womanÂs boyfriend on his looks alone Jeanne PhillipsA legal fight over what should happen to records the FBI seized from President Donald TrumpÂs personal attorney took a surprise twist Monday when the lawyer, Michael Cohen, was forced to reveal in court that he had also secretly done legal work for Fox News host Sean Hannity. Richard Weber: "The string of conservative Republicans needing lawyers is getting longer and longer. Wasn't it nice when all we had was all that Obama corruption? Oh, that right, there wasn't any corruption. He is a digniÂ“ ed man that was a digniÂ“ ed President! This Country has certainly been sunk to a low by a ersatz President that all should be ashamed of!" DICK'S Sporting Goods said Tuesday that it is in the process of destroying all the firearms it pulled from its shelves, rather than trying to return them to their manufacturers. Katie Anderson Newberry: "ShouldnÂt they be turned in. WhoÂs to say they will actually destroy them vs keep them for themselves. There has to be a process for this." Sherry Nash DeLano: "What a waste." LaWanda Tucker: "Awesome!!! :) My deepest gratitude for this act!!" An at-times heated race for Panama City BeachÂs Ward 3 council seat between two political newcomers Â„ who were separated by only 7 votes when early and absentee ballots were counted Â„ ended with Geoff McConnell pulling away to a 163vote win when TuesdayÂs tally was complete. Mike Hatch: "The people of PCB have lost again you will never know what is behind the scenes now, good luck all!!" Christin Terry: "Bay County you have the government you deserve."

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 E1 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Noah SmithIf only Nixon could go to China, as the saying goes, then maybe only Republicans can legalize weed. Marijuana has now been legalized for medical use in many states Â„ only Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota still prohibit use in any form. Nine states allow recreational marijuana use, and 13 others have decriminalized recreational use to some extent. Meanwhile, public support for legalizing the drug continues to grow and is now firmly in majority territory. Unsurprisingly, weed has become big business Â„ sales in Colorado alone now top $1 billion a year. A study by data analytics firm New Frontier Data recently estimated that if marijuana legalization went national, it could generate more than $10 billion of tax revenue a year. ThereÂs just one problem: Cannabis is still illegal under federal law. During the administration of President Barack Obama, an uneasy dtente existed in which the federal government agreed not to prosecute marijuana production, sale and use in states where it was legal. That effectively left things up to the states but left open the possibility that the federal government might reverse itself and crack down. This year, the crackdown came. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he was rescinding the Obama-era policy of tolerance and that marijuana users and growers in every state in the union now had to fear arrest and prosecution by the feds. But Sessions may find himself increasingly isolated, even within his own party. ItÂs not just that public opinion has shifted. Unlike in past federal crackdowns, cannabis is now an incumbent industry that fills state coffers and can lobby legislators. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., had threatened to block Justice Department nominees unless Sessions backed off. President Donald Trump appeared to concede, assuring the senator there would be no punishment for Colorado. Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate is pushing through a bill to legalize hemp, a non-intoxicating variant of marijuana. This is good news. Business and monetary interests may succeed where civil liberties arguments failed, bringing an end to the U.S.Âs marijuana prohibitionÂ„and not a moment too soon. For decades, marijuana opponents argued it functioned as a gateway drug Â„ that users eventually would get bored and be tempted to move onto stronger substances. This argument persisted for a long time since itÂs hard to verify or disprove without actually getting people to regularly use marijuana, something no university ethics board would approve. ItÂs up to GOP to legalize marijuanaÂThe louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.ÂŽÂ„ Ralph Waldo Emerson about a dinner guestIn preparation for James ComeyÂs opening act with his buddy George Stephanopoulos, I watched the movie ÂChappaquiddickÂŽ on a rainy Sunday afternoon. This new movie about an old subject reminds us that when rising Democrat party star and Chappaquiddick Swim Champion of 1968, Ted Kennedy, left a mistress to drown and ran away, the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, a DA, and law enforcement were involved in the crime and the cover-up. If you think for one second that higher-ups at the FBI and politically ambitious U.S. Attorneys would not lie, cheat, or conceal in order to help a political candidate, read history. We have grown an alphabet soup of powerful agencies like the FBI, DHS, NSA, DOJ, IRS, etc. They can bully us because we invest them with immense powers to arrest and to ruin lives Â„ with scant accountability. We allow them to operate in clubby secrecy because they tell us we have to. Why? With that lack of accountability, the FBI has a budget of $8.4 billion and convicts about 10,000 Americans a year. So, we pay $840,000 per conviction just for the FBI, which does not count the cost to prosecute and incarcerate. Why? Bureaucracies grow by making whatever they do (war: The Pentagon; drug wars: the DEA; the War on Poverty, etc.) worse, not better. You do not grow a bureaucracy by solving your agencyÂs problems. The FBI apparently has had so much time and money on its hands the last few years that, having run out of people to arrest, they had time to dabble inDrama queen spins his case in Comey v. Comb-over Ron HartElevate Bay volunteer Katie Frewin helps Tyra McCloud with a math problem at Patterson Elementary. The school soon will learn i ts fate. [PATTI BLAKE/NEWS HERALD FILE PHOTO] There is no one, besides perhaps Oscar Patterson Principal Danita Rivers, who wants Patterson to get a ÂCÂŽ this year more than I do. The district has literally left no stone unturned in our quest to support the students, faculty and staff at Patterson in their efforts to meet the stateÂs arbitrary deadline and goal and we are ALL pulling for Patterson. Unfortunately, my pleas for an additional year fell on deaf ears when I appeared before the State Board of Education, and now weÂre in the very place none of us wanted to be. On Tuesday, the School Board must make a decision about what we will do IF Patterson doesnÂt secure a ÂCÂŽ when school grades are calculated and released by the state in July. We have only three choices, and none of them are appealing: 1. Close the school, transfer the students to a higher performing school(s) and monitor the students for a three-year period. 2. Close the school and reopen the school as one or more charter schools, with a governing board that has a demonstrated record of effectiveness. (No charter schools in BDS qualify due to a lack of experience with this population.) 3. Contract with an outside entity (external operator) that has a demonstrated record of effectiveness to operate the school. The estimated initial FIRST YEAR cost for the external operator is $677,500 to $822,500 in addition to costs for transportation, food, operations, facilities, and salaries for administrative, instructional and support staff. We have had meetings and workshops to look at our options and weÂve researched the law, talked with experts and tried to find other avenues. WeÂve even been to court twice; there simply arenÂt any other options. So, given the extreme costs associated with the external operator (and the fact there are no guarantees their strategies will be any more successful than ours) I just canÂt see that as a viable option. Option two doesnÂt work because there are no charter schools in Bay County with a record of Âturnaround effectivenessÂŽ that qualify. However, if Oscar Patterson does not make a ÂCÂŽ or higher and the board closes the school, the community will have the opportunity to seek out charter options. While most of the local charter schools are exemplary, it must be noted, again, that none of them meet the criteria right now to take over Patterson because they donÂt have experience with a school comprised of students from a low socio-economic demographic. If the school were closed, however, local charter options could be explored, per statute. I am left with option oneÂ„ a heart-breaking and unpleasant option, but one that at least opens the door for Oscar Patterson to reopen as a school.

** E2 Sunday, April 22, 2018 | The News Herald VIEWPOINTS the law allows a charter to come in and reopen the school as a charter. If a charter option is identified, all aspects of board policy (including timelines for the charter school application), must be followed. If a charter were approved, I would recommend waiving the rent for the facility for at least two school years. Additionally, if the charter secured a school grade of ÂCÂŽ or higher, I would recommend we surplus the facility to them with a long-term, no cost lease. Aside from school safety, there is probably not another decision that has weighed on my heart as heavily as this one. As the superintendent of schools, I am the champion of public education in our community and I know that education is the way out of poverty. Education has the power to change lives. The team at Oscar Patterson has worked tirelessly and with endless passion to help their students overcome some serious and horrifying life circumstances and our work will not end regardless of the schoolÂs grade or status. The children at Oscar Patterson, and at all of our Title Ischools, belong to our whole community, and we must take care of them the best way possible. Unfortunately, absent a school grade of a ÂC,ÂŽ the only option the state has really left us with is to close the sc hool so we can open the door to new opportunities for these children. I must take a moment, in closing, to commend the faculty, staff and volunteers at Patterson for the gargantuan task they have undertaken and the passion and professionalism with which they have gracefully set about accomplishing it. These men and women care deeply for our children and they do not set aside those concerns at the end of the school day Â„ they take them home and they weigh heavily on their hearts and in their minds. There is incredible progress being made in the classrooms at Patterson, growth is occurring and lifechanging relationships are being forged. IÂm pulling for Patterson to get this ÂCÂŽ and IÂm eternally grateful for each and every person who has Âboots on the groundÂŽ at this school every day to help them achieve their goal. Bill Husfelt is superintendent of Bay District Schools. HUSFELTFrom Page E1politics. Some up-andcomer in the FBI has advanced a theory that they can indict Trump on a little-known provision in Article 865-C of the Affordable Sorghum Act of 1897. Rumors abound that the guy might be the next Democrat nominee for FBI director. This brings us to the poster boy for bad cops, the sanctimonious James Comey, who is out pimping his book. Its contents have been a closely guarded secret, unlike our nationÂs classified emails and the leaked secrets of the FBI. Spoiler alert: heÂs the hero in his own book. Comey craves attention. There has not been a drama queen heading the FBI since J. Edgar Hoover. And at6 feet,8 inches, just imagine how tall Comey would be in heels. Comey and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe led a culture of corruption; they leaked FBI information that helped them and then lied about it. But when someone at the FBI misleads under oath, they call it Âbeing less than forthcomingÂŽ and ÂmisspeakingÂŽ and Âlacking candor.ÂŽ When we or political enemies do it, they perp-walk them like Gen. Flynn and ruin their lives. To this crowd of vengeful fired FBI officials, ethics and duty are like a streetwalker reporting a customer to the cops for rape only when the johnÂs check bounced. Comey wrote the exoneration of Hillary before the investigation was completed into her destroying 33,000 emails which were under subpoena, bleach-bit washing her PC, and taking a hammer to her cellphones. But he ignored the Clinton FoundationÂs Uranium One scandal, where the Clintons made money by selling 20 percentof our uranium reserves to Russia. Hillary said six other department heads had to sign off on the deal, but no one believes that Â„ the Clintons would have to split their graft booty seven ways. Where has all this weaponization of the FBI led us? Well, it just got TrumpÂs attorney arrested for paying off aprostitute and ended the attorney-client privilege. Lawyers really have had a monopoly of screwing people out of money for years, until they met their match with porn star strippers. We should have learned from the FBI and the Special CounselÂs TMZlike witch hunt that Deep State partisans lied about a DNC/Clinton-bought and paid for Steele dossier in order to obtain a FISA Court warrant used to spy on political opponents. But what have we found out with our $20 million instead? It turns out that Trump likes goodlooking, busty blondes. And that an attorney for Stormy Daniels said, ÂShe can describe the presidentÂs genitalia in great detail.ÂŽ Now we donÂt have Michael Cohen around to give her hush money when we really need it!

HARTFrom Page E1Even if you happen to find a correlation between marijuana use and the abuse of drugs such as heroin and methamphetamine, that doesnÂt tell you much; it could easily just be that the people most likely to go on to hard drugs tend to start with cheaper, more plentiful ones like marijuana or alcohol. But the legalization of marijuana presents a natural experiment that allows us to test the gateway-drug argument. If anything, it looks like the opposite is true. In states that legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes, opioid prescriptions fell substantially. Opioid overdoses fell, too. In Colorado, marijuana legalization was followed by a drop in teen abuse of heroin. Opiate overdoses, which had been climbing steadily in Colorado, suddenly began to fall after cannabis became legal. Instead of a gateway drug, marijuana looks like itÂs a substitute for more addictive, more toxic substances. At a time when the U.S. is suffering a devastating epidemic of opioid and heroin abuse, marijuanaÂs use as a substitute for these harder drugs is much needed. Another fear was legal marijuana would lead to an increase in criminality, but a team of economists found liberalization of state marijuana laws led to no increase in youth criminal behavior. A second paper, by economists James Conklin, Moussa Diop and Herman Li, used a very interesting method to evaluate one aspect of legal weedÂs impact Â„ they looked at house prices. When recreational cannabis was legalized, many medical marijuana dispensaries converted to retail marijuana stores. Conklin et al. found that near these stores, housing prices almost immediately rose by about 8 percent relative to houses in other areas. If legal marijuana brought crime and bad behavior, we would have expected to see a drop in housing prices close to where the drug is sold. ThatÂs exactly what does happen with prostitution Â„ a brothel in the Netherlands lowers the surrounding home values, presumably by making an area dangerous and disreputable. Because marijuana does the opposite suggests it probably has an enduring future as a respectable, wealth-creating business activity. So Republicans are doing the right thing by moving to strengthen protections for legal marijuana. Sessions remains a regrettable holdout, but hopefully President Donald Trump will accede to the tide of history and rein in his regressive attorney general. Repealing the federal law against marijuana use, and leaving legalization entirely up to the states, is the logical next step. Noah Smith is a Bloomberg View columnist.

** The News Herald | Sunday, April 22, 2018 E3 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEWSometimes it seems FloridaÂs prison system is driven by a relentless desire to find new ways to degrade and dehumanize the inmates behind bars. So it should come as no surprise the people who visit inmates are being subjected to degrading treatment, too. Now inmates arenÂt the only ones who must be stripsearched prior to visitation; it seems their visitors also must undergo strip searches when anything Â„ even a bra clasp Â„ sets off a wand detector. The reason for these strip searches, at least according to Florida Department of Corrections officials, is that contraband like cellphones, cigarettes, drugs and weapons has been finding its way into prisons more regularly. Hence, the strip searches, which seem to be a logical idea if they can stem the proliferation of contraband. While these searches are distressing for the people who must undergo them, what is even more alarming is an ongoing push by the Department of Corrections to limit visitations by family members and loved ones. Months ago the department announced it would be cutting back on weekend visits at its facilities. The idea was to limit inmate visits to every other weekend. After family members rightly expressed their outrage, the Department of Corrections said it was dropping its intention to immediately enact the change Â„ pending a public hearing. But it hasnÂt appeared to back away one bit from eventually authorizing the Âevery other weekendÂŽ plan. This idea is ludicrous Â„ and it is dangerous. Study after study shows visitation by family members improves inmatesÂ behavior while behind bars. It reduces depression among inmates, particularly female and adolescent prisoners. And it may even increase the chances of released prisoners making successful transitions to life in the community. In fact, a 2015 report by the Prison Policy Initiative says the positive results of visitation are so numerous it recommended prison systems across the country enact policies that actively encourage visitation. Former warden Ron McAndrew, who now acts as an expert witness in prison cases, says visitation is crucial. ÂVisitation is everything,ÂŽ McAndrew says. ÂYou take inmates who are doing life; they have absolutely nothing in their lives except maybe a visitor. You better believe me, they try to maintain the status quo so as not to screw up that weekend visit. It means everything to them.ÂŽ It is obvious that if Florida is serious about reducing inprison violence and cutting repeat offenders, it should be encouraging visitations Â„ not discouraging them. But according to the Department of Corrections, the increase in contraband and visitor searches has stretched the prison staff so thin it is no longer practical to oversee visitations every weekend. It is true the department has been seriously understaffed for years Â„ but one major reason is because the wages for correctional officers are far too low. The department has even established a $1,000 hiring bonus for new employees, but that has done little to improve the numbers. Florida also hasnÂt done nearly enough to implement smart justice policies that would reduce the prison population, which in turn would help improve the ratio of inmates to officers. Yes, it can be done Â„ and easily so. Georgia and Texas are among the states that have adopted forward-thinking prison reform legislation that works to protect public safety while also reducing the high cost of maintaining prisons. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Florida TimesUnion, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.OUR VIEWDonÂt cut visits to prisonersWhen World War II ended, Washington, D.C.Âs population was about 900,000; today itÂs about 700,000. In 1950, BaltimoreÂs population was almost 950,000; today itÂs around 614,000. DetroitÂs 1950 population was close to 1.85 million; today itÂs down to 673,000. During the 1960s and Â70s, academic liberals, civil rights advocates and others blamed the exodus on racism Â„ Âwhite flightÂŽ to the suburbs. However, since the Â70s, blacks have been fleeing some cities at higher rates than whites. It turns out that blacks, like whites, want better and safer schools for their kids and donÂt like to be mugged or have their property vandalized. Just like white people, if they have the means, black people canÂt wait for moving companies to move them out. At the heart of big-city exoduses is a process I call accumulative decay. When schools are rotten and unsafe, neighborhoods become run-down and unsafe, and city services decline, the first people to leave are those who care the most about good schools and neighborhood amenities and have the resources to move. As a result, cities lose their best and ablest people first. Those who leave the city for greener pastures tend to be replaced by people who donÂt care so much about schools and neighborhood amenities or people who do care but donÂt have the means to move anywhere else. Because the ÂbestÂŽ people Â„ those who put more into the cityÂs coffer than they take out in services Â„ leave, politicians must raise taxes and/or permit city services to deteriorate. This sets up the conditions for the next round of people who can do better to leave. Businesses Â„ which depend on these people, either as employees or as customers Â„ also begin to leave. The typical political response to a declining tax base is to raise taxes even more and hence create incentives for more businesses and residents to leave. Of course, thereÂs also mayoral begging for federal and state bailouts. Once started, there is little to stop the cityÂs downward spiral. Intelligent mayors could prevent, halt and perhaps reverse their city decline by paying more attention to efficiency than equity. That might be politically difficult. Regardless of any other goal, mayors must recognize their first order of business is to retain what economists call net positive fiscal residue. ThatÂs a fancy term for keeping those people in the city who put more into the cityÂs coffers, in the form of taxes, than they take out in services. To do that might require discrimination in the provision of city services Â„ e.g., providing better street lighting, greater safety, nicer libraries, better schools and other amenities in more affluent neighborhoods. As one example, many middle-class families leave cities because of poor school quality. Mayors and others who care about the viability of a city should support school vouchers. That way, parents who stay Â„ and put a high premium on the education of their children Â„ wouldnÂt be faced with paying twice in order for their kids to get a good education, through property taxes and private school tuition. Some might protest that city service discrimination is unfair. I might agree, but itÂs even more unfair for cities, once the magnets of opportunities for lowincome people, to become economic wastelands. Walter E.

SCRAPBOOK AARP Bay County Chapter 1315Florida Wing of Civil Air Patrol Training Miracle Strip Junior WomanÂs ClubOptimist Club of the BeachesPanama City Pops OrchestraUnited Way of Northwest FloridaThe AARP Bay County Chapter 1315 visited the Bay Center Nursing Home on March 29 for their Easter Celebration. The chapter donated Easter baskets with plastic eggs Â“ lled with sugar-free candies, and everyone enjoyed ice cream and singing Easter songs. Recently, 14 Civil Air Patrol Senior Members from Northwest Florida completed the basic Training Leaders of Cadets course designed to equip them with youth mentoring skills, policy knowledge, and practical tools for implementing the Cadet Program. The instructors, under the leadership of Lt. Col. Ryan Livergood, were Capt. Kevin Finster of the Eglin Composite Squadron, Maj. Nancy Ethridge of the Tallahassee Composite Squadron and Capt. Kathleen Crockett of the Maryland CAP Wing. The Cadet Program serves the needs of all CAP Cadets. It is designed to provide young members ages 12-20 training in followership, leadership, aerospace education, communication and emergency services. They receive training in these areas at their weekly squadron meetings as well as participating in local and wing level activities which occur throughout the year. If you are interested in learning more, contact Lt. Col. Ryan Livergood at 314520-0971 or Maj. Staten Corbett at 850-867-4414. The Miracle Strip Junior WomanÂs Club assembled 125 Easter baskets and toiletry-Â“ lled purses for their annual Easter Project. The baskets and purses were delivered to the Salvation Army Domestic Violence Program, Bethel Village, Anchorage ChildrenÂs Home and the Gulf Coast Advocacy Center. United Way of Northwest Florida hosted an annual Meeting & Awards Breakfast to celebrate its 2017 campaign on March 27 in the Holley Academic Center at Florida State University Panama City. Awards were given for Top 10 Community Workplace Campaigns, Top Three Corporate Percent Increases, Top Three Corporate Campaign Increases, Top Five Agency Workplace Campaigns, and Top Five Agency Campaign Increases. Members of The Panama City Pops Orchestra accept a donation from The St. Joe Community Foundation in support of two Pops concerts. From left are Tammala Spencer, David Ott, Janet Piepul and Connie Gittard. The Â“ nal concert of the 2017-18 Pops season will be at 7:30 p.m. May 5 at the Marina Civic Center in Panama City. Deena Pate received the Optimist Plaque at a recent breakfast meeting at MikeÂs Diner. Pictured with Pate are Bernie Schmertmann, left, and Phil Chester, president of the Optimist Club of the Beaches. The club started the childhood cancer program in 2013-14, Â“ nding its Â“ rst child in July 2014 when Pate, secretary at Surfside Middle School, came forward with a child Â„ Rachel Â„ who had leukemia. With permission from RachelÂs family, the Optimist Club got involved, and Rachel became a poster child. They lost Rachel 14 months later, but she remains a poster child with prayers and all 10 cancer children.

Please apply in person: 636 W. 15th Street Panama City, FL 32401Ask for Darryl Colona 832-2370 or Greg Chavers 785-1591 Dear Auto Advisor, My 2005 Ford Sport Trac with a 4.0-liter engine @ 112,000 miles has developed a noise from the rear timing chain area on the passenger side of the engine. This is cylinders 1,2,3. I also have a check engine light for mis res on those cylinders (although the engine still seems to run well). My question is, ÂIs this engine worth the expense to repair, or should I buy another engine?ÂŽ I have been told the engine will need to be removed to repair it.A.B Panama City Beach The best advice I can give you is, it is a lot cheaper to have this common engine problem repaired verses buying another engine or truck. You are talking about 20 plus hours of repair time plus parts, to solve this problem. A Âgood usedÂŽ 4.0-liter engine may develop this same problem in a few months after you install TIMING CHAIN WOES ON 4.0 LITER FORD James Morrisjames@masterautotech.comTHE AUTOADVISORNF-1179445it in your truck. And a new engine without labor or extras will cost about twice what repairing your engine will cost. You told me the engine does not seem to run bad, this tells me the valves have not been bent. If your engine has not been using oil, and no other problems other than the timing chain noise and check engine light, then repairing this engine would be a step in the right direction.I would make sure that the shop you choose has the special tools needed to do this job. The timing components on this engine are NOT lined up with keyways like most engines. Instead these timing gears are locked in place when all of the other timing parts such as the camshaft and crankshaft are ÂTimedÂŽ in the correct position. This repair is a labor-intensive job that can be avoided if proper maintenance is performed on a regular basis using FULL SYNTHETIC oil verses SYNTHETIC BLEND oil in which the manufacture calls for. The timing component on the passenger side of this 4.0 Liter engine is one of the last parts to get oil from the oil pump when the engine is rst started up. Consumers using regular petroleum oil or a synthetic blend oils do not have the Âclinging abilityÂŽ that full synthetic oil has when an engine is shut off and sits overnight.If you use these type oils, when you start your truck after sitting overnight, most of the lubrication has fallen off the chain and it is a ÂdryÂŽ start for a few milliseconds until the oil reaches that right rear timing chain and tensioner. After hundreds of ÂdryÂŽ starts, this problem with your timing chain may develop. The manufacture says in the ownerÂs manual that synthetic blend oil is mandatory for this engine to keep the factory warranty. Synthetic blend oil will get it through manufacture warranty, and not much farther than that from what I have seen over the years. From my experience true 100% Full Synthetic oil will keep this problem from happening, long past you wearing out your driverÂs seat.
