It just doesnÂt make a whole lot of sense to me,ÂŽ Mark Fontaine, execu-tive director of the Florida Alcoholand Drug Abuse Association, said Wednesday.The state Department of Corrections announced the plan Tuesday evening, saying services had to be cut to shift money to the health care program, where there is a $55 million shortfall.Corrections Secretary Julie Jones said although lawmak-ers increased health-care funding for the prison system, the department does not have enough money to cover a new contract for medical, dental, mental-health and hospital services in the budget year that begins July 1. The current contract expires at the end of June.The agency projects it will need an additional $28 mil-lion in 2018-2019 to fund the new contract and will have to offset $26.8 million in rising costs for pharmaceuticals.ÂIn order to secure a health services contractor, fund the increased pharmaceutical budget and adjust for reduc-tions, weÂve unfortunately had to make some very difficult decisions. At the start of the next fiscal year, we will be reducing some of our current Cuts to prison drug programs draw criticismSee PRISON, A4Tyra L.

ÂAll our visitors contribute a great deal to our local economy. We want to always do our part to ensure they have easy access to worldÂs most beautiful beaches.ÂŽPanama City Beach has 54 public beach accesses, all of which were evaluated after the project was approved in 2016.During evaluation, 12 entrances were identified as being in poor condition and 28 were in fair condition, said Ponek. Entrances 55, 57 and 66, closest to State 79, were in the worst condition. Ponek said entrances 56 and 57, at the dog park and city pier, are the most commonly used.Some of the access points were last refurbished after Hurricane Opal in 1995.Some locations needed complete reconstruction, and others required minor repairs. Upgrades included new showers and signage.Most of the walkways and entrances are made of wood with nails, and yearly exposure to elements like sun and salt from the Gulf have weathered them, causing rusty nails and bowed wood.ÂWe began a systematic upgrade, identifying those in the worst condition and those that got the most traffic,ÂŽ Easing way to beach accessBrian Myers washes his feet at beach access 55 on Thursday at the City Pier.

** The News Herald | Friday, May 4, 2018 A3By Eric TuckerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald TrumpÂs explanation for why he fired FBI Director James Comey has shifted again.Rudy Giuliani, TrumpÂs new attorney, said in an interview on Fox News that Trump fired Comey last year because Comey would not state Âthat he wasnÂt a targetÂŽ of the special counselÂs Russia investigation.He said Trump felt that he was treated worse than Hillary Clinton, who was publicly cleared of criminal wrongdoing at an unusual FBI headquarters news conference in July 2016.ÂHe fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasnÂt a target of the investiga-tion,ÂŽ Giuliani said. ÂHeÂs entitled to that. Hillary Clinton got that. Actually, he couldnÂt get that.ÂŽComey told The Associ-ated Press in an interview this week that he saw tell-ing Trump privately Â„ at a January 2017 Trump Tower meeting Â„ that he wasnÂt under investigation as a way to lower the ÂtemperatureÂŽ of an oth-erwise tense encounter before the president took office.GiulianiÂs explanation foreshadows a likely defense to the May 2017 dismissal, but it was at least the third offered by Trump and his advisers.It also comes as the presidentÂs legal team is debating whether to allow Trump to be interviewed by special counsel Robert MuellerÂs team, which in addition to investigating potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign, is examining whether the presidentÂs firing of Comey and other actions constitute obstruction of justice.In announcing the firing, the White House initially cited the FBI directorÂs handling of the probe into ClintonÂs emails. Trump later told NBCÂs Lester Holt that he was thinking of Âthis Russia thingÂŽ when he made the move.On Fox News Wednesday night, Giuliani said Trump did the Lester Holt interview Âto explain to the American people the pres-ident was not the target of the investigation.ÂŽComey has acknowledged that he told Trump on multiple occasions that he was not personally under investigation. Yet when asked that same question by Congress at a public hearing last year, he declined to provide that same reassurance.When asked specifically at a March 20, 2017 House intelligence committee if Trump himself was under investigation, Comey replied: ÂIÂm not gonna answer that....We have briefed him in great detail on the subjects of the investigation and what weÂre doing, but IÂm not gonna answer about any-body in this forum.ÂŽIn the AP interview Tuesday, Comey acknowledged that it was possible he could have handled the January 2017 Trump Tower meeting differently.His general counsel had expressed concern about providing that reassurance to Trump, but Comey said he thought it was probably necessary as a way to preserve their relation-ship. During that same meeting, Comey alerted Trump to the existence of salacious allegations concerning Russia prostitutes contained in a dossier compiled by a former British spy that had been circulating around Washington.Comey said Trump strongly denied the allegations, but appeared to calm down after being told he wasnÂt under investigation. ÂIf I was still going to be in the position of having to brief him privately, had I not said that, what would have happened thereafter?ÂŽ Comey said in the interview. ÂThat is, what would have happened to the temperature of that meeting if I didnÂt have some way to take it down in the moment at Trump Tower?ÂŽGiuliani o ers new explanation of why Trump red ComeyBy Michael R. SisakThe Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Â„ Bill CosbyÂs wife called Thursday for a criminal investigation into the suburban Philadelphia prosecutor behind his sexual assault convic-tion, saying the case that could put the 80-yearold comedian in prison for the rest of his life was Âmob justice, not real justiceÂŽ and a Âtragedy.ÂŽCamille Cosby made her first comments on the verdict in a threepage statement sent to the media through a family spokesman, as institutions from Hollywood to Madison Avenue continued to wipe away the remnants of his legacy. He was expelled on Thursday from the motion picture academy and the Adver-tising Hall of Fame.Camille Cosby com-pared her husband of 54 years, convicted a week ago on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, to Emmett Till and other blacks mistreated by the justice system. ÂOnce again, an inno-cent person has been found guilty based on an unthinking, unquestion-ing, unconstitutional frenzy propagated by the media and allowed to play out in a supposed court of law,ÂŽ she said. ÂThis is mob justice, not real justice. This tragedy must be undone not just for Bill Cosby, but for the country.ÂŽCamille Cosby, 74, said chief accuser Andrea Constand was a liar whose testimony about being drugged and molested at CosbyÂs home in January 2004 was Âriddled with innumerable, dishonest contradictions.ÂŽShe echoed CosbyÂs lawyers, who contended that Constand framed him to score a big payday.Cosby is on house arrest while awaiting sentencing. His lawyers have vowed to appeal.Her statement did not address behavior Cosby has admitted to, such as philandering and contention that he was having a consensual affair with Constand.ConstandÂs lawyer bristled at the statement and asked, Âwhy would any reputable outlet publish that?ÂŽÂTwelve honorable jurors Â„ peers of Cosby Â„ have spoken,ÂŽ lawyer Dolores Troiani said. ÂThere is nothing else that needs to be said.ÂŽConstand said in a tweet last week that ÂTruth prevails.ÂŽ The jury said in a statement Monday that she was Âcredible and compelling.ÂŽProsecutors opposing a request for juror names from The Associated Press and other news media outlets urged a judge on Thursday to consider a Âcooling offÂŽ before theyÂre disclosed. They cited a 90-day wait in the case of Casey Anthony, the Florida mother acquitted in 2011 of charges she killed her young daughter.Camille Cosby stayed away from both of her husbandÂs trials, except for the defenseÂs closing arguments. She and Bill Cosby had five children Â„ two of whom have died Â„ and she served as his business manager.Before the jury came in last week to hear from CosbyÂs lawyers, she went to the defense table and put her arm around Cosby, who is legally blind. They embraced, smiled and chatted, and he gave her a peck on the cheek. When it was the pros-ecutionÂs turn to argue, she left the courtroom, and Constand entered.Constand sued Cosby in 2005 when prosecutors dropped a criminal investigation after four weeks. Cosby wound up settling for nearly $3.4 million after giving four days of depositions, including testimony about giving quaaludes to women before sex, that a juror said Monday was instrumental in his conviction.Camille Cosby com-pared the dozens of other women whoÂve accused her husband to a Âlynch mobÂŽ spurred on by the mediaÂs Âfrenzied, relentless demonizationÂŽ of the man who earned a reputation as AmericaÂs Dad playing Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the top-rated family sitcom ÂThe Cosby Show.ÂŽShe compared his treatment to Till, the black teenager who was kidnapped and murdered after witnesses said he whistled at a white woman in a Mississippi grocery store in 1955, and Darryl Hunt, a black man wrongly convicted of raping and killing a white woman in North Carolina in 1984. Con-stand is white.ÂSomeday the truth will prevail, it always does,ÂŽ Camille Cosby said.She said her husbandÂs prosecution was politically motivated, repeating his teamÂs contention that he had been a pawn in a heated race for district attorney.Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele attacked opponent Bruce Castor in campaign ads over his decision not to charge Cosby in 2005 and announced CosbyÂs arrest a month after win-ning the November 2015 election.She said Steele and his team were Âexploitive and corruptÂŽ and that their Âprimary purpose is to advance themselves professionally and eco-nomically at the expense of Mr. CosbyÂs life.ÂŽWife: Cosby convicted by Âmob justice, not real justiceÂBill Cosby, left, arrives with his wife, Camille, for his sexual assault trial, April 24 at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa.

** A4 Friday, May 4, 2018 | The News HeraldPonek said. ÂWe are replacing the weathered wood with a manufactured composite decking that wonÂt bow, warp or rot.ÂŽAbout $65,000 has been used for project materials. The Parks and Recreation Department has budgeted $100,000 for materials and another $100,000 for labor for the project. Renovations are halfway finished, but repairs and maintenance will continue, officials said. It could take up to five years to finish rebuilding some of the accesses, which might hit roadblocks if storms come their way, officials said.Mayor Mike Thomas said he hasnÂt received any complaints about the accesses, but people have inquired about the loca-tion of handicap accesses, of which the Beach has seven. Two points are located along South Thomas Drive, one close to Churchwell Drive, and one between the county and city piers, and three west of State 79. BEACHFrom Page A1contracts with community providers,ÂŽ Jones said in a statement.The reductions will be felt across the state, impacting some 33 community providers that offer substance-abuse services and other programs, ranging from life-skills development to job placement, designed to help prisoners suc-cessfully return to society once they have served sentences.ÂThey are reducing or eliminating contracts that they have with com-munity providers that are providing very valuable, evidence-based and effective programs in order to get to that goal,ÂŽ Fontaine said.The cuts include a 40 percent reduction in funding for substance-abuse and mental-health treatment for prisoners returning to their communities, representing a $9.1 million reduction. Another $1.6 million will be cut in transitional housing services.In the prisons, another $7.6 million in substance-abuse services will be eliminated, and the plan will shift prisoners receiving more intensive ÂtherapeuticÂŽ treatment to Âmore cost-effectiveÂŽ work-release programs, providing another $6 mil-lion in savings, according to the plan.Another $2.3 million will be cut from basiceducation re-entry centers, while smaller cuts include $500,000 used to fund chaplains and librarians.Fontaine said cuts in substance-abuse treatment are particularly troubling.ÂSeventy percent of the people in prison have a drug problem, and these are the few critical services we have provid-ing drug treatment and theyÂre talking about reducing those,ÂŽ he said.He also said effective drug treatment can help reduce the rate of prisoners returning to the system, reduce costs and protect communities.ÂWeÂve seen that over and over again. Research-based drug treatment makes a difference,ÂŽ Fon-taine said.In an interview Tues-day night with The News Service of Florida, Senate Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations Chairman Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, said the prison system funding crisis had Âbeen festering for yearsÂŽ and that lawmakers failed to adequately respond to the issue.Brandes said healthcare funding shortfalls have to be addressed, but he lamented the impact on the substance-abuse services.ÂYou canÂt have an opioid crisis and cut opioid funding,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou canÂt just let people out of prison without some type of transition back into society. These are the types of programs that the research shows provide the best outcomes.ÂŽFontaine, who said he is talking with lawmakers, legislative staff and Gov. Rick ScottÂs aides, suggested one way to address the crisis would be to shift some of the stateÂs reserve funds into the prison budget, although lawmakers have been reluctant to spend down reserves. ÂItÂs not like we have to take this (budget-cutting) action,ÂŽ he said. ÂThere are other actions that can be done. It just takes the political will to do it.ÂŽThe privatization of prison health care has been an ongoing problem for the state, with the Department of Corrections going through a series of companies in an attempt to provide the services. Jones is negoti-ating a new contract with Centurion of Florida LLC, which provides the current services for about 87,000 inmates. The new contract is expected to be a five-year, $2 billion agreement.

ÂThe money brought in through the bus advertisements can be used as a match for Federal Transportation Administration grant funds, which allows us to continue our focus on improving the system for our riders.ÂŽHobbs said there alreadyis interest from some businesses.ÂWeÂre very excited about this opportunity,ÂŽ said Cheryl Anderson, vice president of Sales and Marketing for FUEL. ÂWeÂre already working with some potential clients.ÂŽThe first on-bus ads should hit the streets this month, according to a news release. TROLLEYSFrom Page A1 By Nasser Karimi and Jon GambrellThe Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran Â„ IranÂs foreign minister took to YouTube on Thursday to criticize President Donald TrumpÂs threat to withdraw from the nuclear deal, saying Iran will not Ârenegotiate or add ontoÂŽ the atomic accord.Mohammad Javad ZarifÂs video, which was also posted to TrumpÂs favor-ite social media platform, Twitter, appeared to be taking his message to the masses after earlier speak-ing to news outlets across the United States to defend the deal.It comes as Trump has signaled he will withdraw from the agreement by May 12 if it is not renego-tiated and changed. Those changes have included proposals to limit IranÂs ballistic missile program, which Tehran says it has as a defensive deterrent.The five-minute video shows Zarif behind his desk, delivering his mes-sage on the deal. He offers background first about the deal before laying into Trump and criticizing Europe for offering Âthe United States more concessions from our pocket.ÂŽÂOn 11 occasions since, the U.N. nuclear watchdog has confirmed that Iran has implemented all of its obligations,ÂŽ Zarif, who studied in the U.S., says in American-accented Eng-lish. ÂIn contrast, the U.S. has consistently violated the agreement, especially by bullying others from doing business with Iran.ÂŽZarif adds: ÂLet me make it absolutely clear once and for all: We will neither outsource our security nor will we renegotiate or add onto a deal we have already implemented in good faith.ÂŽThere was no immediate response from Washington.The 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers saw Tehran limit its enrichment of uranium and number of spinning centrifuges, as well as hand over its stockpile of uranium and reconfigure a heavy-water reactor so it couldnÂt produce plutonium. In exchange, Iran regained access to the global banking system and could sell its oil again on the world market.IranÂs foreign minister: No renegotiating nuclear dealIranÂs Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is interviewed April 24 by The Associated Press, in New York. Zarif took to YouTube on Thursday to criticize President Donald TrumpÂs threat to withdraw from the nuclear deal, saying Iran will not Ârenegotiate or add ontoÂŽ the atomic accord.

** The News Herald | Friday, May 4, 2018 A5Dan LamotheThe Washington PostPresident Donald TrumpÂs top official in the Navy Department said Wednesday that an increase in non-fatal aviation mishaps is a Âleading indicatorÂŽ of the problems the military should examine, after a year in which scores of U.S. troops were killed at home and abroad in crashes.Navy Secretary Rich-ard Spencer spoke before reporters at the Pentagon alongside the top officers in the Navy and Marine Corps. Navy Adm. John Richardson and Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller both said most of the incidents were Âminor,ÂŽ but Neller described the Marine CorpsÂ recent overall track record in stark terms.ÂSo last year we had a horrible year. We had a horrible year,ÂŽ Neller said. ÂAnd my heart goes out to the families that lost a ... Marine, or in one case we had a sailor and 15 Marines on a C-130.ÂŽThe comments came after a five-year period in which at least 133 U.S. service members have been killed in crashes. An investigation by the Military Times newspa-per chain recently found that the number of inci-dents involving manned aircraft jumped almost 40 percent between 2013 and the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2017, with a 108 percent increase in accidents involving one kind of fighter jet, the F/A-18 Super Hornet.The scrutiny comes after nearly 17 years at war in Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, with an air campaign against the Islamic State group since 2014 taxing aircraft and maintenance crews.The military officials noted Wednesday that the overall increase in crashes can be attributed largely to a rise in so-called ÂClass C mishaps,ÂŽ which cause between $50,000 and $500,000 in damage to the aircraft but no deaths. More serious Class A mishaps result in fatalities or at least $2 million in damage, while Class B mishaps cause between $500,000 and $2 million in damage or lead to the hospitalization of three people or a debilitating injury for one.Richardson rejected any notion that the Navy is sending pilots into the air who are not ready to fly or have dangerous air-craft. But he and Neller acknowledged that after years of congressionally mandated budget cuts known as sequestration, pilots have less experi-ence than they once did. A pilot with several years experience in the military 20 years ago would have had probably 1,200 to 1,500 hours in a cockpit, but now gets closer to 800, Neller said.ÂWe didnÂt fund avia-tion readiness to the amount that we probably should have, because we ... were in this kind of financial fiscal reduction, OK? There were decisions that were made,ÂŽ Neller said. ÂSo, you know, weÂve got a backlog of maintenance. WeÂve got airplanes now coming out of depot.ÂŽTrump signed in March a $1.3 trillion budget deal, saying he had set aside veto threats because he thought it was important to get the military $700 billion in funding, $60 billion more than it saw in 2017.Spencer said that there is not enough data to directly connect the past funding cuts to the recent accidents, but that ÂadditiveÂŽ training hours will help.ÂThatÂs kind of a bril-liant flash of the obvious comment,ÂŽ Spencer said.

[TED SHAFFREY/AP] By Russ Bynum and Danica CotoThe Associated PressPORT WENT-WORTH, Ga. Â„ Military investigators began the arduous task Thursday of answering why a C-130 Hercules cargo plane being flown into retirement by an experienced crew plunged onto a Georgia highway. Families and friends of the nine airmen, mean-while, grieved and took note of the fact that Puerto RicoÂs planes are the oldest in the National Guard inventory.There were no survivors when the huge plane dropped from the sky moments after taking off from Savannah, Georgia, narrowly missing motorists and buildings as fiery wreck-age exploded over a wide area. Only the tail section was intact, sitting improbably in the middle of Georgia Highway 21.A military officer told reporters Thursday that investigators were on the scene, but he offered no preliminary findingsÂItÂs extremely impor-tant for us to understand what has happened,ÂŽ said Col. Pete Boone, vice commander of the 165th Airlift Wing of the Georgia Air National Guard. He said investi-gators would use Âevery resource at our disposal to properly identify a cause.ÂŽThe aging plane had rescued and resupplied American citizens after last yearÂs hurricanes as part of the U.S. terri-toryÂs fleet, which often struggles to remain mis-sion-ready amid long waits for spare parts, said Adjutant Gen. Isa-belo Rivera, commander of the Puerto Rico National Guard.The plane crashed after taking off from Savannah/ Hilton Head International Airport en route to Arizona, where it would have been retired from service. Boone said it had received Âroutine maintenanceÂŽ while in Savannah. He did not know if the crew made a distress call to air traffic controllers after takeoff.All nine airmen on board were confirmed dead, Boone said. The military made their names public Thursday afternoon.The pilot was identified as Maj. Jose Rafael Roman, from Manati on the islandÂs north coast. Manati Mayor Jose San-chez told The Associated Press that Roman had two sons and his wife is five months pregnant with a girl.ÂThe town is in mourning,ÂŽ Sanchez said.Carlos Narvaez, a newspaper sports editor who was RomanÂs close childhood friend, told the AP that Roman was nicknamed ÂRotorÂŽ because he loved all things with a motor that go fast.

** A6 Friday, May 4, 2018 | The News HeraldState agrees to 20 percent pay raise; walkout comes to endBy Anita Snow and Terry TangThe Associated PressPHOENIX Â„ The Arizona governor signed a plan Thursday to give striking teachers a 20 percent pay raise, ending their six-day walkout after a dramatic all-night legislative ses-sion and sending more than a million public school students back to the classroom.Gov. Doug DuceyÂs sig-nature awarded teachers a 9 percent raise in the fall and 5 percent in each of the next two years. Those increases are in addition to a 1 percent raise granted last year.Teachers did not get everything they wanted, but they won substantial gains from reluctant lawmakers.ÂThe educators have solved the education crisis! TheyÂve changed the course of ArizonaÂŽ Noah Karvelis of Arizona Educators United shouted to several thou-sand cheering teachers. ÂThe change happens with us!ÂŽThe Arizona walkout is part of a simmering national rebellion over low teacher pay. The movement started in West Virginia, where astrikeresulted in a raise, and spread to Okla-homa,Kentuckyand, most recently, Colorado.Hours after Ducey acted, strike organizers called for an end to the walkout. Most schools stayed closed Thurs-day, except for a handful that managed to reopen shortly after the pay raises passed. Some dis-tricts planned to reopen Friday, with others likely to resume classes next week.The Senate approved the raises just before dawn as hundreds of red-shirted teachers followed the proceedings from the lobby, many sitting on the cold stone floor.The night before, the teachers, who are among the lowest paid in the country, held a candlelight vigil in a courtyard outside the original neo-classical Capitol building. They stood together with their right hands over their hearts and sang ÂAmerica the Beautiful.ÂŽWrapped in blankets or sleeping bags, they napped on the ground or in folding metal chairs, occasionally using cellphones to monitor an online video stream of the legislative debate in the chambers.Ducey said the teach-ers had earned a raise and praised the legislation as Âa real winÂŽ for both teachers and students. The pay increases will cost about $300 million for the coming year alone. Some teachers returned to the Capitol on Thurs-day as lawmakers debated the rest of the stateÂs $10.4 billion budget plan. Among them was Wes Oswald, a third-grade teacher from Tucson who made the two-hour drive for a sixth day.Oswald said the budget still does not address serious issues such as the need for higher perpupil spending, raises for support staff and a smaller-student-tocounselor ratio.Teachers must still fight for those problems to be addressed, Oswald said, adding that Âthe worst thing would be for this movement to dissolve.ÂŽArizona Education Association President Joe Thomas said educa-tors should now focus on a campaign for a Novem-ber ballot measure that would seek more education funding from an income tax increase on the wealthiest taxpayers.ÂThe budget is a significant investment, but it falls far shortÂŽ of what the movement demanded, Thomas said.Helen Hoffman, a counselor at Phoenix Union High School, said she was ÂexcitedÂŽ about the end of the strike. ÂIÂm worried about my students. IÂm ready to go back,ÂŽ she said.Elizabeth Ruiz, an eighth-grade math teacher in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert, expects her school to reopen Friday.ÂItÂs middle-schoolers, so itÂs a tough age. But IÂm ready to see them,ÂŽ she said.Education cuts over the past decade have sliced deeply into ArizonaÂs public schools. Teachers wanted a return to pre-recession funding levels, regular raises, competi-tive pay for support staff and a pledge not to adopt any tax cuts until per-pupil funding reaches the national average.The new funding pack-age provides schools will a partial restoration of nearly $400 million in recession-era cuts, with a promise to restore the rest in five years. Other cuts remain in place.Minority Democrats mainly voted against the budget plan, drawing criticism from Republicans.ÂYou know, talk is pretty cheap Â„ itÂs your vote that counts,ÂŽ Republican Rep. Anthony Kern said. ÂIf Republicans voted with Democrats tonight, you would be walking away with zero.ÂŽDemocratic Rep. Reginald Bolding urged lawmakers not to congratulate themselves for easing the same crisis they created.ÂYou canÂt set a house on fire, call 911 and claim to be a hero. And thatÂs what this body has done,ÂŽ Bolding said.Arizona teachers strike victoryWith the Arizona Capitol in the background, thousands of teachers continue their protest Thursday in Phoenix. After an all night legislative budget session, the legislature passed the new education spending portion of the budget and Republican Gov. Doug Ducey signed that part of the budget. [ROSS D.

** The News Herald | Friday, May 4, 2018 A7 BUSINESSBy Tom KrisherThe Associated PressDETROIT Â„ Elon MuskÂs quirky behavior has long been chalked up to that of a misunderstood genius. But never have his actions caused so much angst on Wall Street.Investors have for years endured millions of dollars in short-term losses in hopes of a long-term payoff. They might have even been able to stomach the $8.3 million that Telsa Inc. burns through each day. But it was a confer-ence call Wednesday night that left many wondering how much more they can take.Just after the electric car and solar panel company announced a record first-quarter loss, the Tesla CEO cut off two analysts who sought some basic answers: details about the companyÂs cash needs and orders for its all-impor-tant Model 3 mass-market electric car.ÂThese questions are so dry. TheyÂre killing me,ÂŽ Musk said as he dismissed an RBC Capital Markets analyst in favor of a blog-ger who served up queries more to his liking. Musk called the analyst questions boring and Ânot cool.ÂŽShares fell quickly in after-hours trading, and analysts began writing that Musk shouldnÂt bite the hands that feed his companyÂs enormous cash needs because soon he may need more. By Thurs-day afternoon, Tesla stock had lost nearly 6 percent of its value. ÂWhile they may be dry in nature, we argue such questions are extremely important for a highly leveraged and cash-hun-gry company,ÂŽ Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas wrote in a note to investors.The conference call behavior was labeled bizarre by some investors. It also followed some recent wild tweets by Musk about building a cyborg dragon, how his eyebrows can grab things and an April 1 post in which he wrote, ÂDespite intense efforts to raise money, including a last-ditch mass sale of Easter Eggs, we are sad to report that Tesla has gone completely and totally bankrupt. So bankrupt, you canÂt believe it.ÂŽTo be sure, Musk has joked in the past and poked fun at critics. He often posts updates to his 21.5 million Twitter followers about his com-panies, retweets posts from happy customers and warns about artificial intelligence.A Tesla spokesman wouldnÂt comment on Musk. But the stock slide showed that Wall StreetÂs seemingly endless patience with Musk Â„ who is also a rocket scientist and tunnel company chief Â„ may be growing thin.Tesla has fallen far short of MuskÂs promises to ramp up Model 3 production, which the company has said is key to turning a profit. Tesla has more than 450,000 waiting orders, but it canÂt monetize them unless the cars can be assembled en masse. Without additional cash, some analysts have predicted that Musk faces a reckoning if he needs more money from investors to fund operations, capital spending and debt payments that are due early next year. Musk, who has tweeted about sleeping at the Tesla factory, said theyÂve overcome automation failures like a Âfluffer botÂŽ that couldnÂt install fluffy Fiberglas mats atop battery packs. The firstquarter loss hit nearly $710 million with a cash burn of $745 million. Free cash flow, which is cash generated minus capital spending, was a negative $1 billion.Peculiar MuskMARKET WATCHDow 23,930.15 5.17 Nasdaq 7,088.15 12.75 S&P 2,629.73 5.94 Russell 1,546.56 8.36 NYSE 12,392.50 25.56COMMODITIES REVIEWGold 1,310.70 8.10 Silver 16.362 .071 Platinum 904.00 10.20 Copper 3.0590 .0115 Oil 68.43 0.50Tesla CEOÂs idiosyncratic conduct causes angst on Wall StreetBy Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack email@example.comPANAMA CITY Â… Live roaches and unlicensed activity caused health officials to temporarily shutter a wing res-taurant and a liquid nitrogen ice cream business in Panama City Beach last month, according to official reports.In March, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations (DBPR) issued emergency clo-sures to Hooters, 12709 Front Beach Road, and DragonÂs Breath, listed only as operating at 600 Pier Park Drive. Sanitation and safety specialists reported finding conditions that could contribute directly to a food-borne illness or injury at the time of their inspection of Hooters, and DragonÂs Breath had not acquired the proper license to operate their business. Only Hooters has corrected the issue and was allowed to reopen the next day while DragonÂs Breath remains closed, DBPR reports indicated.DBPR specifies their inspec-tion reports are snapshots of a business at that time only. The closuresappear to bethe first of their kind for either business, and Hooters has an active state license and is open, according to DBPR reports.Inspectors reported arriving at Hooters in Panama City Beach on April 24 at about 4:15 p.m. to find evidence of live roaches in areas of the kitchen.ÂObserved four live roaches around the steam table,ÂŽ inspectors wrote. ÂObserved one live roach around raw chicken wings cooler on the cook line. Observed 35 live roaches underneath sauce table on the cook line.ÂŽHooters director of opera-tions Phillip Robinson said that the restaurant has regular visits from a pest control company. Despite the companyÂs efforts, some roaches got into a stainless steel piece of equipment they had been using as shelving in the kitchen. Robinson said thatÂWe took care of it, and itÂs out of the building,ÂŽ he said. ÂWeÂll be more diligent in pre-venting anything in the future.ÂŽIn more than 25 years at the Hooters location in Panama City Beach, Robinson said they have not been issued an emergency closure.Inspectors returned the fol-lowing morning at about 10:20 a.m. and found that the issue had been corrected. DBPR reports also indicate it was the first incident of its kind for the business.A week earlier, inspectors reported arriving April 17 at about 3:30 p.m. to DragonÂs Breath, a liquid nitrogen ice cream business, in Pier Park. Few details are available about the visit other than the condi-tion for closing the business was Âunlicensed activity,ÂŽ DBPR reported.Attempts to contact owners of the business Thursday were unsuccessful.A DBPR license number was not available for the business to determine how long Drag-onÂs Breath had been operating without proper licenses or if the incident was the first of its kind at that location. DBPR reports stated that a second location on DestinÂs Harbor Walk had also been operating without a proper license and was shuttered within an hour of the Pier Park locationÂs closure. Neither has been approved to reopen, reports indicated.Added to the restaurant closures issued by DBPR from earlier in 2018 in the central Pan-handle, AprilÂs closures bring the total to 12 so far this year.Health inspections lead to two closures Special to The News HeraldYour future employee is a young woman who graduated from Arnold High School and currently attends the Clemson LIFE Program.

If they intend to get here by driving, however, and donÂt have an electric vehicle, theyÂll need to budget a little more for gasoline compared to recent years. Crude oil prices are at their highest point since the end of 2014, and the average price of regular gasoline in the U.S. Â„ $2.81 as of Tuesday Â„ is nearly 50 cents higher than in May 2017. The American Automobile Association reports gasoline has reached $3 per gallon at 13 percent of U.S. stations, with the highest prices seen on the West Coast, in Alaska and Hawaii (not surprisingly) and in some Northeast states. PricesarenÂt quite that steep yetinBay County, wherea fewstations stillare selling regular unleaded for $2.67, according to GasBuddy, but they certainly are rising here, too. And analysts expect oil prices to continue climbing, so thereÂs going to be a certain level of ÂouchÂŽ here and elsewhere in the country. There are two culprits Â„ worldwide economic growth ramping up the demand for oil, and the impact of last yearÂs production cuts by OPEC finally registering. There also is some ill timing involved. These factors are kicking in at a time when gasoline prices normally increase in the U.S., thanks to more people hitting the roads for the aforementioned vacations. Crude oil and gasoline prices actually have been inching up for close to a year; the increases have just been so gradual they havenÂt gotten peopleÂs attention. ThatÂs changing as they see how much more itÂs costing to fill up their vehicles (especially the popular ones with large tanks). Analysts are offering reassurance. They expect gasoline prices to top out at $2.74 this summer and then decline. That price shouldnÂt deter most vacation decisions, so folks whose livelihood depends on tourism should be OK, nor should it impede overall economic growth. Still, people in non-urban areas that lack public transportation, where not driving isnÂt an option, always get kind of antsy when gasoline prices rise. They have visions of 2008, when crude oil was more than $130 a barrel and average gasoline prices topped out at $4.11 a gallon. Saying Âit could be worseÂŽ doesnÂt make those visions go away. WeÂd hope those memories would keep the need for fuel efficiency on peopleÂs minds, especially carmakers. It wouldÂve been easy to get used to low gasoline prices Â„ to think they had again become the permanent norm. It also wouldÂve been a mistake. Things happen. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Gadsden (Ala.) Times, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.Vacation time nears Â… and gas prices are risingWhy does American journalist Abby Martin do propaganda for socialist murderers? YouÂve heard about Russian propaganda. Martin once worked for RT, RussiaÂs state-run news network. Now sheÂs got a similar gig at teleSUR, an anticapitalist, pro-socialist news network funded by Latin American leftists. IÂd never heard of teleSUR before researching this weekÂs YouTube video. But teleSUR matters because its videos get millions of views. One teleSUR video lists countries where Âcapitalism failedÂŽ: Canada, Mexico, England, Peru, Panama, Switzerland, the United States ... Another says that ÂTrump is killing our brains with Nazi-era chemicals.ÂŽ Few viewers know teleSUR is funded by the tyrants who control Cuba and Venezuela. Venezuela, once rich, has been bankrupted by its socialist rulers. More than a million Venezuelans have fled to neighboring Colombia and Brazil. Those who donÂt flee go hungry. One study found Venezuelans have lost, on average, more than 20 pounds. Hundreds of children have died of starvation. One shows a picture of Warren BuffetÂs son while telling viewers, ÂPhilanthropy is a scam that allows the super rich to influence global affairs ... as if capitalism were the solution, not the cause of world problems.ÂŽ Excuse me? Capitalism is a solution. In the last few decades, capitalism has lifted billions of people out of miserable poverty. How can teleSUR put a positive spin on that? They hire Âuseful idiots,ÂŽ as Communists once called nave leftists who spread tyrantsÂ propaganda. Today, one person they pay is former Californian Abby Martin. Martin produced a teleSUR video that shows Venezuelan store shelves filled with goods. Martin narrates, ÂWe just went to about five different supermarkets and the shelves were fully stocked ... (W) hile it is true there are shortages, it seems like you are very able to find things for everyday life, no problem.ÂŽ I wanted to interview Martin, but she didnÂt respond to my interview requests. Back when Martin worked for RT, at least she criticized Russia for invading Ukraine. But she also used her RT airtime to praise tyrants like Hugo Chavez, the former socialist president of Venezuela. ÂIt is undeniable that under his leadership the poorest in the country were empowered,ÂŽ Martin said on RT. Empowered? By starving? Shortages? Rampant inflation? Government troops suppressing protesters? I wish Martin were as principled as her former RT colleague Liz Wahl. On RT, Wahl said: ÂI face many ethical and moral challenges ... I cannot be a part of a network funded by the Russian government.ÂŽ Then she quit, on-air. She got a job with a legitimate news network. But Martin stayed at RT for another year, and now she does government-funded propaganda for teleSUR. Her videos describe ÂU.S. death squadsÂŽ and claim NATO and the U.S. lead Âconstant wars of aggression.ÂŽ In the U.S., racism is Âentrenched ... political opposition quashedÂŽ while the U.S. Âempire ... runs on death and destruction and kills thousands of our brothers and sisters every day.ÂŽ Fergus Hodgson, who reports on Latin America, says teleSUR is winning hearts and minds. ÂEven well-meaning people here in the United States, I see them sharing teleSUR material all the time,ÂŽ he told me. ÂThey should know that this is a media outlet that is funded by ... dictatorial communist or tyrannical rulers. (If you) share the material, youÂre sharing the lies of these brutal people.ÂŽ John Stossel is host of ÂStosselÂŽ on the Fox Business Network, author of ÂNo They CanÂt!

The city is making changes to its comprehensive plan Â„ a state-mandated docu-ment every municipality has to create that outlines local policy. Some of the updates will be minor changes to wording, along with updates to the cityÂs coastal management plan and other issues.Tim Whaler, project man-ager for consulting firm 3TP Ventures, which specializes in assisting smaller municipalities with planning and economic development, spoke about the update during TuesdayÂs city council meeting. The city does have a coastal management plan, but because of state-mandated increases in coastal manage-ment, ParkerÂs updated plan will further address flood mitigation and resiliency planning.Parker has about 12 miles of shoreline along St. Andrew Bay.

[NEWS HERALD FILE PHOTO] By John Kennedy GateHouse Capital BureauTALLAHASSEE Â… Unwilling to turn school staff into gun-packing Âguardians,ÂŽ some officials across Florida are turning to a controversial alterna-tive to meet the demands of a state law approved after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.The Duval County School Board has became the second in two weeks to approve hiring and training dozens of new, modestly paid, armed Âsafety assistantsÂŽ to pro-tect classrooms.Polk County school officials endorsed hiring 90 Âsafety specialistsÂŽ a week earlier Â„ while a host of other counties are now considering the idea.Lawmakers passed a bill this year requiring armed defenders in every school.Districts were left with a range of options for meet-ing that requirement, from hiring uniformed law enforcement officers to training volunteer school personnel including some teachers as ÂguardiansÂŽ authorized to carry weap-ons on campus.But hiring officers is expensive and arming school employees is highly controversial.The safety specialists are something of a middle ground.The approach has its critics.ÂThe governor has stated that he believes sworn law enforcement should be the ones protecting our students,ÂŽ said McKinley Lewis, a spokesman for Governor Rick Scott.Many districts, though, are scrambling to find the millions of dollars needed to meet the new state requirement.

Bevy of drugs seized in raidPANAMA CITY A Sun Harbor resident has been arrested on charges that he was operat-ing a drug operation out of his apartment, according to official reports. Stuart Finlay McAuley, 23, appeared in court Thursday on several narcotics-related charges. The Panama City Police Department reported serving a warrant on his apartment at 5505 Sun Harbor Drive at about 3:30 p.m. to find narcotics, cash and a loaded pistol. Mcau-ley is now being held at the Bay County Jail, court records stated.PCPD reported that inside McAuleyÂs apartment they discovered Âeight large bagsÂŽ of mari-juana, a bag of cocaine, a bag of methamphetamine, a sliver of tinfoil containing Ânumerous hitsÂŽ of LSD and a jewelry bag of THC concentrate. In addition to the drugs, officers reported finding $7,800, though Mcauley said he was not employed. PCPD reported Mcauley also had a loaded Glock 27 hidden under a computer table within the apartment. He was also a convicted felon on probation until 2020, police reported. Hillsborough County extends waiting period to buy gunsTAMPA Â„ In a move prompted by the Parkland high school shooting, the waiting period to purchase a firearm in one Florida county is now five days.Hillsborough County Commissioners on Wednesday voted 5-2 to lengthen the so-called Âcooling off periodÂŽ from three days to five despite protests from local gun store owners and Second Amendment activists. Hillsborough County is on FloridaÂs west coast, and includes the city of Tampa.State law prohibits local governments from passing gun control measures, but the state Constitution, which mandates a threeday waiting period on handgun purchases, allows counties the flexibility to make it five days.Critics of the plan say thereÂs no evidence that extending Âcooling-offÂŽ periods works. Critics say the measure will drive customers to gun stores in neighboring counties that donÂt have the longer waiting period. The Associated Press Rabid raccoon found on beach PANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ A raccoon captured near Cabana Blvd, west of Alf Coleman Road, has tested positive for rabies. ItÂs Bay CountyÂs second laboratory confirmed rabid animal of 2018, according to the Flor-ida Department of Health.The Florida Department of Health in Bay County reminds people that Florida Law requires dogs and cats four months and older to be vaccinated for rabies by a licensed veterinarian. Dogs and cats are at risk for rabies should they fight with an infected animal or chew up a bat.Rabies is a fatal viral infection of the nervous system that is transmitted from animal to animal and animal to human by bite, scratch, or mucous mem-brane exposure to infected saliva. Humans should avoid physical contact with wild animals and stray or unvaccinated domestic animals.If bitten or scratched by an animal, wash the wound immediately with soap and water and seek medical treatment as needed, as well as reporting the injury to the Florida Department of Health in Bay County at (850) 872-4455. If the animal is stray or wild, call 911 or Bay County Animal Services at (850) 767-3333 and report the animalÂs location. In the City of Lynn Haven, call the Lynn Haven Police Department at (850) 265-1112.The Health Department offered the following tips:Â€Secure outside garbage in covered containers.Â€Do not leave pet food outside overnight.Â€If your dog or cat fights with a wild animal, contact the Florida Department of Health in Bay County. Â€Do not shoot suspected rabid animals in the head.Â€Wear rubber gloves and protective eyewear when dressing/butchering wild animals to avoid exposure to rabies and other diseases. Cook all meat thoroughly to 165 degrees.For further information on rabies, go to the Florida Department of Health website at http://www.doh.state.fl.us/environment/medicine/rabies/rabies-index.html or contact the Florida Depart-ment of Health in Bay County at 850-872-4720 or follow us on Twitter @FLHealthEmerald.St. Andrews seeks Âsaltiest dogÂ to be honorary mayorDogs greet each other during Mardi Gras in St. Andrews.

** B4 Friday, May 4, 2018 | The News Heraldleaders say the state did not provide enough new funding to cover the costs.Volusia County also is considering hiring lower-cost, safety specialists. Alachua, Marion and many other counties still are looking to place more law enforcement officers in schools, while the Sarasota County School District is moving forward with plans to form its own police force.Other counties talk of contracting with private security firms to enhance campus safety.Major costs are tied to every approach Â… money districts say may come from cuts to other programs, reserves, or even property-tax increases.ÂEverybody is trying to find some way to make this work and do it as cheaply as they can,ÂŽ said Andrea Messina, executive direc-tor of the Florida School Boards Association.But some worry about districts that opt not to rely on law enforcement on campuses.ÂWe understand the challenges districts face,ÂŽ said Angie Gallo of the Florida PTA. ÂBut weÂre extremely concerned about the quality of appli-cants we may get for these low-paid positions.ÂŽScott has set an added deadline, by demanding that districts say by July 1 whether they will partici-pate in the new guardian program, which was cre-ated by the Legislature in the month after 17 were killed at the Parkland high school.More than a dozen dis-tricts Â… representing the bulk of FloridaÂs 2.8 million students Â„ already have openly rejected the idea of arming school staff. Four counties, Bay, Hendry, Suwannee and Okeechobee, say they will look to having armed staff volunteers at schools.Districts leery of the guardian program face the question of how to pay for an alternative.With ScottÂs deadline and the August start of school edging closer, school leaders struggling for answers have come up with the new, lower-paid safety position.In Polk County, these specialists would be paid $30,000 for 10 months work, and two months off in summer. DuvalÂs safety assistant post pays $20,600 annually, or $12.50 an hour.ÂWould you put your life on the line for that?ÂŽ asked Escambia County SheriffÂs Commander Dale Tharp, spokesman for the Florida Association of School Resource Officers.Just as with the guardian program, the new hires will undergo extensive background screening and get between 144 hours and 160 hours of firearms training, defensive tactics and legal education.Both Duval and Polk are looking to use the safety officers at elementary schools, while maintaining school resource officers, typically sheriffÂs deputies, at middle schools and high schools.Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says of the newly created position, ÂItÂs not a bad gig.ÂŽÂWeÂre getting a lot of applicants,ÂŽ said Judd, whose ÂsentinelÂŽ program with armed instructors and administrators at Polk County colleges inspired the LegislatureÂs guard-ian approach.ÂIf they donÂt pass the screening or training, they wonÂt be safety spe-cialists,ÂŽ he added. ÂBut I think weÂre going to end up with well-trained guards at the right price.ÂŽThe Duval County School BoardÂs lone vote against the measure was Ashley Smith Juarez, who warned against the Ârisk of having an individual with four weeks of train-ing on a campus.ÂŽ Many counties, includ-ing Alachua and Marion, which was rocked by a high school shooting last month that left a student wounded, still are looking to staff schools with officers.

He now faces 24 counts of wire fraud and four counts of filing false income taxes over four years that severely under-reported his income.Hill also created invoices charging the hospital prices exceeding what was actually paid for the medical supplies he ordered from eBay and other vendors, accord-ing to the indictment filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida in Panama City.ÂSoutheastern was a sham business that pro-vided no medical supplies and existed only as a name associated with a bank account, a UPS mailbox and invoices (Hill) submitted to the hospital,ÂŽ U.S. Attorney Christo-pher Canova wrote in the indictment.The money scammed from the hospital was used to pay personal credit cards, fund a busi-ness owned by Hill and his wife, obtain cash and pay personal expenses like grocery bills and vacations.Hill resigned from the hospital in 2015 under murky circumstances; at the same time, law enforcement began their investigation into the medical supply fraud case.At one point after resigning from the hospi-tal, Hill operated a Krispy Krunchy Chicken near downtown Blountstown. The restaurant since has been closed.To conceal the scheme, Hill reportedly deposited the checks without endorsement. He used the address of the UPS Store on South Monroe Street in Tallahassee to further attempt to legitimize the business, according to the indictment.Between 2013 and 2015, investigators found Hill made 24 fraudulent wire deposits ranging from $3,600 to $23,000 into a bank account set up specifically for the fake medical supply company.When a hospital employee asked Hill for a phone number for South-eastern, he said heÂd lost his phone, and Âthe last time he had Âtalked withÂ representatives of Southeastern, they were Âtalking about going out of business.Â ÂŽThe indictment also alleges that from 2011 to 2014, Hill filed tax returns that falsely underreported his income. Each of the 24 wire fraud counts is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. The maximum potential penalty for each count of filing false tax returns is a maximum of three years in prison.Hill is scheduled for trial July 2, court records state.Calhoun Liberty Hos-pital did not respond to a request for comment.The hospitalwas the subject of national media attention in December 2015 after 57-year-old Barbara Dawson collapsed in the parking lot and died after being discharged. A wrongful death lawsuit brought against the hospital by DawsonÂs family was dismissed last year by U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle. In the wake of DawsonÂs death, however, the Florida Agency for HealthCare Adminis-tration fined the hospital $45,000 after it found 10 deficiencies related to the treatment of Dawson and another patient.

** The News Herald | Friday, May 4, 2018 B5Tom McLaughlin315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn email@example.comOKALOOSA COUNTY Â„ Tonisha Lache Crowell has been found guilty of first-degree premedi-tated murder in the death of her newborn baby and will spend the rest of her life in prison.A jury deliberated about four hours Wednesday before returning with its verdict. Circuit Judge John Brown passed sentence immediately after jurors were polled to confirm their unanimous decision.Crowell was charged with premeditated murder in late February 2014, soon after her newborn daughter, Ricki, was discovered inside a plastic bag, filled with household trash, that had been stashed in a ditch outside the Fort Walton Beach area home she shared with five others.Prosecuting attorney Angela Mason said Crowell had purposely hidden the fact she was pregnant. She argued that Crowell had not spoken of the pregnancy and gave birth alone in a downstairs bathroom because she was planning all along to dispose of the child.ÂShe had months to decide what to do with this baby,ÂŽ Mason said in her closing argument, citing evidence indicating Crowell learned in October 2013 of the impending birth. ÂShe never intended, when she delivered her, she never intended for this baby to live.ÂŽDefense attorney Donald Witmyer tried unsuccessfully to convince jurors that blood evidence found in the bathroom indicated the childÂs umbilical cord had ruptured during what had been an unexpected birth and that Ricki was dead at birth or shortly thereafter.Witmyer said Crowell had panicked after the birth, leading her to make terrifically bad decisions regarding the disposal of the body.ÂShe sat down to have a bowel movement and a baby came out. ThatÂs not normal, thatÂs not expected,ÂŽ Witmyer said in closing. ÂThat causes panic to the point of hyperventilating.ÂŽMason credited jurors for taking the time to weigh all the evidence introduced during the two-day trial. ÂThis was a very emo-tional case, as it is any time the death of a child is involved,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe are very grateful Âƒ to the jury that clearly studied the evidence and rendered a just verdict.ÂŽMason also thanked the Okaloosa County SheriffÂs Office investigators who worked for four years to obtain the verdict reached Wednesday.The emotion was evident as Crowell wept following the verdict and family members, including her children and Rickey Patterson, the father of the child victim, embraced one another with tears streaming down their faces.One of CrowellÂs child children, a daughter named Bella, was allowed into the area of the courtroom typically reserved for those directly involved in the case to say goodbye to her mother.Another Crowell child, a 9-year-old named Jalin who provided key prosecution testimony Tuesday, shied away from saying goodbye, hiding behind his father when the opportunity to do so was offered.Rickey Patterson, with his arm around Jalin as he left the Okaloosa County Courthouse Annex Extension, waved off a reporter seeking comment.ÂNot now,ÂŽ the still tearful Patterson said.Witmyer was able to secure one victory in his defense of Crowell by convincing the First Judicial CircuitÂs State AttorneyÂs Office to withdraw a motion filed in late 2016 to seek the death penalty.With the death pen-alty off the table, Brown was obligated, by state law, to sentence Crowell to life in prison without parole, the only penalty available to him on the first-degree murder charge. Crowell has 30 days to appeal the verdict. Wit-myer declined comment on the case.Okaloosa mother guilty in death of infantWill spend life in prison a er rst-degree murder convictionBy Jim Thompson315-4445 | @Jimtnwfdn firstname.lastname@example.orgEGLIN AFB Â„ Chemical compounds found in some of the groundwater at Eglin Air Force Base donÂt pose a threat to its drinking-water system, according to base officials.EglinÂs drinking water comes from wells across the base that are fed by groundwater. Monitoring of the active drinking water sources at Eglin does not show either of the two compounds, according to base spokesman Michael Spaits.A Department of Defense report released in March showed water from five of EglinÂs groundwater mon-itoring wells, all near a fire training area, contained two chemical compounds in concentrations far higher than the federal Environ-mental Protection AgencyÂs Lifetime Health Advisories. Lifetime Health Advisories are a measure of the concentration of chemicals in drinking water. Levels at or below the advisories are not expected to produce adverse health effects.The compounds found at Eglin, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluo-roctane sulfanimide (PFOS), are components of foam used to combat petroleum fires. They are not regu-lated under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.The EPAÂs Lifetime Health Advisories for PFOA and PFOS are 70 parts per trillion. Groundwater from the six wells at Eglin contained PFOS and PFOA in concentrations ranging from 4,300 parts per trillion to 280,000 parts per trillion, according to the DoD report.Last year, more than 4,200 samples of the drink-ing water at Eglin were analyzed by an independent laboratory, with no notices of chemical contamination, Spaits said.The reason for that, according to Spaits and Ralph Armstrong, EglinÂs restoration programs manager, is that the baseÂs water comes from the Floridan aquifer, a layer of permeable rock that traps and holds groundwater that is pumped to the surface.The Floridan aquifer is hundreds of feet below the surface, and is also under a thick layer of clay-type soil through which potential contaminants canÂt pass, Armstrong said.All of the five monitoring wells at which the two chemical compounds were discovered are near the installationÂs fire training pit, an area between its two runways used for training on aircraft fires. The pit includes an aircraft mock-up, and until 2016, training included the use of a filmforming foam containing PFOS and PFOA sprayed from fire trucks, said Spaits.In 2016, Spaits said, Eglin switched its fire trucks to a new foam that contains no PFOS and only trace amounts of PFOA. Fire suppression systems in EglinÂs hangars still use foam containing PFOA and PFOS, but will be switching to the new foam beginning in August, according to Spaits. The conversion will be completed in November, he said. The area around the fire-training pit has been a focus of attention for 50 years, according to Armstrong. Initially, there was concern about aircraft fuel leaching into the groundwater, he said.ÂThe groundwater flow is very slow and very flat,ÂŽ he said. During the 50 years it has been monitored, groundwater contamina-tion has spread somewhere between 100 yards and 200 yards from the pit area, according to Armstrong.The recent DoD report was filed in connection with the federal governmentÂs budget for the current fiscal year. Budget documents directed the DoD to provide the House Armed Services Committee with a briefing on its response to issues with the two chemical compounds. The committee asked for information on locations on or near military bases where PFOA and PFOS were detected at levels above EPAÂs health advisory, or where the com-pounds might have been released.The committee also asked for information on shortterm mitigation efforts, plans for long-term mediation of issues with PFOS and PFOA, and research on less environmentally harm-ful versions of firefighting foam.Groundwater monitor-ing is an ongoing activity at Eglin, particularly at sites where fuel has been spilled or where they may be other potential environmental hazards, according to Spaits. All of that work is done in conjunction with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, he added.ÂWeÂre sampling all the time somewhere,ÂŽ Spaits said.Spokesman: Eglin groundwater contamination no threat
** B6 Friday, May 4, 2018 | The News HeraldChristine SextonThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ Acu-puncturists and physical therapists are waging a war over needles.As a growing opioid epi-demic has made patients leery of continued use of the drugs, the Florida Board of Physical Therapy has proposed a rule that would authorize certain physical therapists to treat patients with a Âdry needlingÂŽ technique.But the move is opposed by the Florida State Orien-tal Medical Association, which, among others, recently requested that the board hold a public meeting on the proposed rule. The issue was on the agenda of a board meeting scheduled to start Thurs-day night in Lake Mary.ÂThis is a great opportunity to provide alternatives other than opioids,ÂŽ said Rob Stanborough, a St. Augustine physical therapist and owner of First Coast Rehabilitation, who defends allowing physical therapists to offer the treatment.Stanborough, who also teaches dry-needling techniques for the Myo-pain Seminars company, is the only physical therapist in the state who has been authorized by the Board of Physical Therapy to per-form the procedure.The board last year issued a declaratory statement saying that dry needling is within a physi-cal therapistÂs scope of practice and gave Stan-borough approval to begin using the technique on his patients.Dry needling is the name physical therapists use to describe a technique of inserting filiform needles into the skin at various Âtrigger points,ÂŽ which causes certain responses. Filiform needles, which are used for acupuncture, are solid. They cannot be used to inject substances or medicine, hence the word Âdry.ÂŽStanborough said he doesnÂt know how many patients he has used the treatment on in the nine months since getting board approval and said heÂs reluctant to estimate the numbers.ÂBut itÂs not like IÂm needling everybody who comes to the door,ÂŽ he said.While he acknowledges that there is a turf war between the professions, Stanborough said that doesnÂt have to be the case and said he has Âwonderful professional relationshipsÂŽ with acupuncturists who work in St. Augustine and Jacksonville.Stanborough said he uses the dry-needle tech-nique to treat patients for problems that can involve such things as an inability to perform activities of daily living, such as bathing and eating, or an inability to work. He said clients visit acupuncturists for treatment of diseases and that there isnÂt overlap.ÂEach profession has their own special skill set. We each have our own set of knowledge, but we each have our own set of limitations as well,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut itÂs all for the bet-terment for the patient.ÂŽBut acupuncturist David Bibbey views things somewhat differently. He sees about 200 patients a month at his Crystal River practice and said about 80 percent of them are there for pain control.Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine. Acu-puncturists insert filiform needles into the skin at certain trigger points to balance the flow of energy through pathways in your body. Licensed to practice acupuncture in Florida since 2011, Bibbey said dry needling is acupuncture and that thereÂs a reason the Legislature doesnÂt allow just any health-care professional to perform the procedure.ÂThey want to protect the public from the inher-ent risks of injury,ÂŽ said Bibbey, who also serves as treasurer of the Florida State Oriental Medical Association. The Board of Acupunc-ture also maintains that dry-needling proposal would improperly expand the scope of practice for physical therapists.The fight between acu-puncturists and physical therapists goes beyond FloridaÂs borders Â„ physi-cal therapists in more than 30 states practice dry nee-dling Â„ but it has been rejected in larger states such as California and New York.Florida law includes acupuncture in the practice of physical therapy. But the law makes clear that there can be no penetration of the skin and that therapists who want to practice acupuncture must comply with rules set by the Florida Board of Medicine.The Florida Board of Medicine, though, hasnÂt passed rules on the issue.Meanwhile, after giving Stanborough approval to practice, the Florida Board of Physical Therapy moved ahead with a pro-posed rule that could apply to all physical therapists.Board members agreed earlier this year on requirements that would allow physical therapists to perform dry-needle techniques so long as they had taken courses recog-nized by the Commission on Accreditation in Physi-cal Therapy Education, the American Physical Therapy Association, the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy or any branch of the United States Armed Forces.But the rule appears to run afoul of the law, said Marjorie Holladay, general counsel of the LegislatureÂs Joint Administrative Proce-dures Committee.She sent a letter to the Board of Physical Therapy noting the proposed dry-needling rule allows therapists to penetrate the skin, which exceeds statutory authority, she said.HolladayÂs letter also noted that the Board of Medicine had not set any criteria for the practice of acupuncture.But attorneys for the statewide physical therapy association argue that that Board of Physical Therapy, and not the Board of Medicine, should be charged with setting the standards for dry needling.Moreover, the attorneys said in correspondence sent to the Board of Physical Therapy that dry needling doesnÂt expand a physical therapistÂs scope of practice because thera-pists are authorized to use apparatuses and equipment on their patients, including needles.Tad Fisher, executive director of the Florida Physical Therapy Association, said the stateÂs health-care licensing boards generally have Âstayed within their own regulatory authorityÂŽ and that having the Board of Medicine develop rules for physical therapists who have an interest in acupuncture Âprobably raises questions.ÂŽWhat raises questions for Bibbey is why physical therapists donÂt want to take additional train-ing. For the last 30 years, he said, acupuncturists have made the case to the public that the treatment is safe and effective.ÂAnd we have done it over the objections of most Western medical providers,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd now we are finding they all want to perform acupuncture.ÂŽBibbey said there are six physicians in the state who Â„ in addition to maintaining a medical license from the Board of Medicine Â„ have taken required courses to be licensed by the Board of Acupuncture.But, he said, the physi-cal therapists who want to perform acupuncture Âwant to do it with little-to-no additional training and no real understanding of how or why it works.ÂŽTurf war brewing over needle treatmentsAcupuncturists fear losing business to physical therapists

She is out of jail on $1,000 bail, court records show.According to Volusia deputies, a witness, Betsy Grindle, called 911 to report that she saw Hopkins with a small dog on a leash, which she flung out into the ocean near Bethune Beach Park on Turtlemound Road in New Smyrna Beach.Grindle reported that Hopkins would pull the dog out of the water, wait a bit and then throw the animal back into the water, and Grindle felt Hopkins was trying to drown the dog, a report said.A deputy found Hop-kins at Kingfish Avenue. She had a small dog, weighing about three or four pounds. The animal was completely drenched, covered in sand, shaking heavily and appeared to be coughing, investigators said.Hopkins said she was having fun with the dog by tossing it into the water, saying the dog was not in any danger. She tried to show the deputy how she lifted the dog by the leash, and the deputy had to stop her, a report detailed.Deputies: Florida woman arrested for trying to drown dogBy Patricio G.

Mosley won the region and eventually advanced to the state championship game.ThatÂs the route that Arnold, which qualified for its first region tournament on Tuesday, must take after falling to 18-9, three of the losses to Mosley and this one the most lopsided. Mosley, 20-5, will host the Fort Walton Beach-West Florida loser from District 1 next Tuesday. Arnold will travel to face the winner.Justin Kelley set the tone with a three-run home run in the first inning, Brayden Gainey pitched five strong innings and Kelley closed with two shutout innings against the Marlins.It was relatively straightforward, Mosley knocking out freshman starter Blake Holman after four batters and reaching all of ArnoldÂs three ensuing relievers for at Mosley eases to district titleMosleyÂs Justin Kelley celebrates his three-run home run in the Â“ rst inning of the DolphinsÂ 8-1 win over Arnold on Thursday evening. [JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] See MOSLEY, C2The Associated PressTORONTO Â„ Watching LeBron James at shootaround, Kevin Love knew something special was in store.Maybe not the fadeaway jumpers James kept making, each seemingly with a higher degree of difficulty than the last, but he was sure there would be something.ÂThis morning you could just sense it,ÂŽ Love said. ÂHe knew what was at stake, he knew us getting another win here was going to be huge for us. He came out and he played that way from the jump. You could just sense that he was going to have a special night.ÂŽJames had 43 points and 14 assists, Love added 31 points and 11 rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Toronto Raptors 128-110 on Thursday to take a 2-0 lead in their sec-ond-round playoff series.James delivered the first 40-point, 14-assist game in NBA playoff history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.He added eight rebounds, narrowly missing his second straight tripledouble, and connected on 19 of 28 attempts in a performance so dominant that the beleaguered Rap-torsÂ city was being called ÂLeBrontoÂŽ by the time the night was over.ÂHe got it going and he was feeling it,ÂŽ Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.James, meanwhile, gave credit to Love, who shot 11 for 21 and missed matching his career playoff high by one point.ÂIt was great to see that performance out of him,ÂŽ James said. ÂHeÂs our All-Star power forward. ThatÂs a huge game for him.ÂŽJ.R. Smith scored 15 points, Jeff Green had 14 and George Hill 13 as the Cavaliers posted their eighth consecutive postseason victory over the Raptors and halted Toron-toÂs four-game winning streak in Game 2s. The Raptors entered 6-1 all-time when playing Game 2 at home.ÂLove got going on us and that was a difficult matchup for us,ÂŽ Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. ÂWe have some matchup issues all over the court.ÂŽDeMar DeRozan scored 24 points and Kyle Lowry had 21 for the Raptors. Toronto won a teamrecord 59 games and finished as the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference this season, but was easily shoved one step closer to a third straight postseason exit at the hands of James and the Cavs.Jonas Valanciunas had 16 points and 12 rebounds and Fred VanVleet scored James scores 43 as Cavs beat Raptors in Game 2Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James shoots over Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan during the second half of Game 2 of an NBA second-round playoff series Thursday in Toronto. [FRANK GUNN/THE CANADIAN PRESS VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] North Bay HavenÂs Destiny Sternberg (15) beats out a throw at Â“ rst base as EpiscopalÂs Brooke Begley leans down to try to catch the ball. [ PHOTOS BY PATTI BLAKE/THE NEWS HERALD] By Dustin Kent747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent email@example.comPANAMA CITY Â„ Last year, North Bay Haven had to watch its season come to an end at the hands of Trinity Christian Academy. Thanks to some clutch hit-ting by Destiny Sternberg and a dominant pitching performance by Katie Walters, the Buccaneers will get a chance for redemption against the Conquerors on Tuesday along with a berth at state.SternbergÂs two-out RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning gave NBH a 1-0 victory over Episcopal School of Jacksonville in the Region 1-4A semifinals Thursday night at Harders Park. The Buccaneers will again be at Harders Park on Tuesday to host Trinity Christian Acad-emy in the region finals.Walters was the hero for NBH on the mound, going all seven innings and limiting the Eagles to four hits and a walk while striking out 12. Maddie Latta was the hard-luck loser for Episcopal, allowing just the one run on seven hits with nine strikeouts in 6 Â‡ innings.She nearly sent the game into extra innings but couldnÂt get the final out in the bottom of the seventh, as the No. 9 hitter Sternberg ripped a pitch to right field that allowed pinch runner Alyssa Shores to score from second base. However, it was not a situation Sternberg said she was particularly con-fident going into. ÂIt was definitely shocking because I havenÂt been hit-ting the ball good lately,ÂŽ she said. ÂWhen I hit the ball, I was like, Âwhoa,Â and then SternbergÂs hit sends NBH to region nalsNorth Bay Haven right Â“ elder Catie Dillahey comes in to catch a Â” y ball. See NBH, C2 See NBA, C2
** C2 Friday, May 4, 2018 | The News Heraldleast one run.Terry Byers was by far the most effective of them, allowing only one run over three innings and strik-ing out six. The outcome had long been decided by then, however.At this time last season, Kelley was hitting about .450 with more than 30 runs batted in. ThursdayÂs 3 for 4 performance boosted his aver-age close to .400, but his three RBIs increased his total to only 12 on the year.At midseason, he was pressing somewhat when his production lagged. Not coincidentally MosleyÂs offense was slow to respond at times, and if not for Drew YeagerÂs breakout seas on at the plate the DolphinsÂ win total also might have flagged.ÂI wasnÂt doing what IÂm able to, and I listened to my coaches and got back in the (batting) cage and worked and worked,ÂŽ said Kelley, a Gulf Coast commitment who is a three-year starter.ÂI got a little bit higher in my stance. I felt like I was losing my legs and I got more torque in my swing. I really feel like all of the hard work paid off.ÂŽ Kelley also believes the Dol-phins are coming together for possibly another lengthy playoff run, which has become something of a tradition for the Lynn Haven school. Mosley had 11 hits on Thursday and five players contributed RBIs, Gainey supporting KelleyÂs three with a pair and Blake Vineyard, Seth Etienne and Mason Raines also plating baserunners.Gainey and Raines had two hits each, Mosley doing all of its damage in the first four innings.Arnold may have been look-ing toward next week while getting four pitchers some work. It is clear that Ryan Pettys, who won the MarlinsÂ district semifinal on Tuesday against Wakulla, will be their No. 1 starter going forward.Arnold did snap a streak of 14 scoreless innings against Mosley when it scored an unearned run in the top of the first, the Marlins the visiting team on their home field because of being the lower district seed.Dawson Redd opened the game with a hard line drive that left fielder Etienne tracked down and then dropped for an error. Redd stole second and scored on ByersÂ two-out single to center field.The Marlins didnÂt get another runner into scoring position until Clay Parker walked to lead off the fourth and Jerian Hardrick stroked a one-out single to move him to third.Gainey pitched out of that situation while improving to 8-0. Kelley quickly gave him a cushion after Jaden Rudd singled and Brett Roberson walked to open MosleyÂs first. ÂI feel like IÂm seeing it (ball) really well right now,ÂŽ Kelley said.The Dolphins scored three times against relievers Dominic Canfora and William Collins in the third to reinforce their dominance.Byers had two of ArnoldÂs three hits and the MarlinsÂ lone RBI.Arnold 100 000 0 Â„ 1 3 2 Mosley 403 100 x Â„ 8 11 1Holmes (L, 5-2), Canfora 1, Collins 3, Byers 4 and Hardrick; Gainey (W, 8-0), Kelley 6 and Lasecki.

MOSLEYFrom Page C1By Pat McCannThe News HeraldEBRO Â„ Stocky Hess said that Ebro patrons havenÂt been asking him whether or not SaturdayÂs 64th running of the Inaugural at Ebro Grey-hound Park will bethe last one held in Washington County.The move to ban greyhound racing has gained momentum in some quarters of the Florida Legislature in recent years. But that doesnÂt mean opening day at the track will not commence a 174-performance schedule for this season on Saturday.Hess, who grew up around greyhound racing in the pari-mutuel industry and is president of the Washington County Kennel Club, understands how some who embrace the attrac-tion are confused by a term such as decoupling or byvoter refer-endums that passed in regions of the state pertaining to slot machines and casino gambling.ÂIt will be business as usual here in case people were won-dering,ÂŽ Hess said Thursday about opening day on Saturday afternoon as well as the rest of the summer season.In recent years, EbroÂs opening for live racing has coincided with the running of the Kentucky Derby, making it one of, if not the most lucrative day of the meeting. Ebro will initiate its 2018 season with what has become a rare matinee performance on Saturday beginning at 1:30 p.m.The Inaugural, or first stakes race of the season is scheduled for about 3 p.m.Following SaturdayÂs matinee the track will host live racing on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings throughout May. The only other exceptions will be a mati-nee performance on May 19 to coincide with the running of the Preakness, the second race of the Triple Crown, and a Sunday night program on May 27.Hess said there will be four programs featuring Sunday night live racing, three of them extending summer holidays and the other on June 17.Otherwise, Hess said that longtime patrons might notice that not much has changed for this season. There will be eight kennels in the compound, HMS and Paul Guimond new to the facility.ÂWe will have the same stakes, the same number of performances,ÂŽ Hess said. ÂClosing night is Labor Day.ÂŽAs in recent years, evening programs will be divided into two eight-race performances for a total of 16 races each racing night.Ebro readies for 64th InauguralOpening day again will coincide with running of the Kentucky Derby The following is a list of area athletes playing college baseball and their statistics as of May 2, unless noted.

I was really nervous. My heart was racing and I had butterflies in my stomach.ÂŽHer co ach, Butch Bernard, was much less surprised that Sternberg came up with a big hit when her team needed it.ÂSheÂs been clutch here at the end of the season and she was clutch last year at the end of the season,ÂŽ he said. ÂShe hits the ball well and weÂve got her in a good spot so she can roll it over to the top (of the lineup). SheÂs not your typical No. 9 hitter. WeÂve just got her there. She did her job tonight.ÂŽSternberg finished 2 for 3, as did Lauren Freed and Catie Dillahey, who started the sev-enth inning rally with a one-out single down the left field line. After Latta struck out Ally Lanford, Bernard decided to send the pinch runner Shores to second on a steal and she beat the throw from Episcopal catcher Peyton Namyslowski to get into scoring position.ÂI was kind of hesitant about stealing Shores and putting her on second, but sheÂs one of our fastest and we got in scoring position,ÂŽ Bernard said. ÂThey had a timeout (after the steal)and I told her that I was the only one that would slow her down. If (the ball) was cracked, she was scoring unless I stopped her.ÂŽKaytlin Bishop also had a hit for the Bucs. Jaclyn Conner, Olivia Bogan, Blair Baldwin, and Namyslowski all had hits for the Episcopal. The EaglesÂ best chance to score came in the top of the second inning when they loaded the bases with one out on a pair of infield singles by Conner and Bogan and a catch-erÂs interference call on Lanford that sent Baldwin to first base.It appeared as though the Eagles would get on the board when Namyslowski lifted a high fly ball to left field that allowed Conner to tag from third base, but she was gunned down at home plate by a per-fect throw from Melanie Brock for the third out.Episcopal threatened again in the fifth inning with two runners on and no outs, but Walters struck out Kaya Olsze-wski, got Kami Eppley to hit into a force play at second, and struck out Carlie Dickson to end the threat. Walters retired the final nine batters she faced and struck out the side in the top of the seventh inning.The Bucs can now turn their attention to the region finals and the Conquerors, who dealt them a 7-0 defeat in last yearÂs region semifinals. The winner will advance to the state semi-finals in Vero Beach.ÂWeÂve got a chance to redeem ourselves,ÂŽ Bernard said. ÂIÂm not sure how good Trinity is. I know what their record is and I know theyÂve played some tough competition and gotten some losses because of that. Their pitcher we faced last year and graduated has moved on, so weÂll see. I know theyÂve still got a lot of studs in their lineup.ÂŽ EPISCOPAL 000 000 0 Â„ 0 4 0 NBH 000 000 1 Â„ 1 7 1Latta (L) and Namyslowski. Walters (W) and Lanford. LOB: Episcopal 5, NBH 4. E: Lanford.

Bozeman finished 19-7. TENNISPopova eliminated at stateALTAMONTE SPRINGS Â„ Arnold sophomore Alisa Popova had her run at the 2A state tennis tournament come to an end Thursday morning, as she fell to Melissa Sakar of American Heritage 6-0, 6-0 in the semifinals. Popova won her opening match Wednesday 6-0, 6-0 over Kirbea Harrell. NBHFrom Page C1 14 points, but the Raptors lost back-to-back home games for the first time all season.Toronto matched Hous-ton by going 34-7 at home in the regular season, and went 3-0 at home against Washington in round one. The Raptors had not lost consecutive home games since dropping Games 3 and 4 of the second round to Cleveland last May.The series shifts to Ohio for Game 3 on Saturday night. Toronto has gone 0-5 at Cleveland over the past two postsea-sons, losing by an average margin of 24.2 points per game.ÂSometimes when youÂre put in tough situations, thatÂs what brings the best out of you,ÂŽ DeRozan said. ÂThatÂs what point weÂre at now.ÂŽUnfortunately for the Raptors, James insisted the Cavs arenÂt satisfied with their 2-0 lead.ÂWe will not let our guards down,ÂŽ James promised.The Cavaliers, who tied a postseason low with three turnovers, are 21-3 at home against Eastern Conference opponents in the playoffs over the past four years.The Raptors, who let a 10-point lead slip away in a 113-112 overtime loss in Game 1, were up 54-45 midway through the second quarter but saw their lead dwindle to 63-61 at halftime.Cleveland took control as Smith scored six points in an 18-5 spurt to begin the third quarter. The Cavs outscored the Raptors 37-24 in the third to take an 11-point edge into the fourth, and Toronto didnÂt challenge again.ÂThatÂs kind of what won the game for us,ÂŽ Lue said of ClevelandÂs big third quarter. CELTICS 108, 76ERS 103: Rookie Jayson Tatum scored 21 points and hit a pair of free throws in the closing second, and the Boston Celtics rallied from a 22-point deÂ“ cit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-103 on Thursday night and take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semiÂ“ nals. Terry Rozier added 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Marcus Smart Â“ nished with 19 points and Â“ ve rebounds as the Celtics improved to 6-0 at TD Garden this postseason. They have never blown a 2-0 lead. Game 3 is Saturday in Philadelphia. NBAContinued from C1

Salvador Perez, Jorge Soler and Alex Gordon each went deep for the Royals, who have quietly gotten on track offensively after a miserable start. Nationals 3, Pirates 1: Trea Turner and Ryan Zimmerman homered in the sixth inning to complete a four-game sweep. Jeremy Hellickson and four relievers combined on a Â“ve-hitter for Washington, which has won a season-high Â“ve in a row. Braves 11, Mets 0: Julio Teheran took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning, and 20-year-old Ronald Acuna Jr. hit his second big league home run as Atlanta routed New York to complete a three-game sweep that vaulted the young Braves into the NL East lead. Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 2: Arizona reliever Jorge De La Rosa threw a pair of run-scoring wild pitches during an eighth-inning rally.

The book eventually evolved into SpaldingÂs OfÂ“cial Baseball Guide. 1869: The Cincinnati Red Stockings, the Â“rst all-professional team, played its Â“rst regular season game and beat the Great Westerns of Cincinnati 45-9. 1871: The Fort Wayne Kekiongas beat the Cleveland Forest Citys, 2-0, in the Â“rst game played in the National Association. In the 127 games during the 1871 season, there were a total of four shutouts. 1910: The Browns and Cardinals played home games in St. Louis, and President Taft, not wanting to offend either club, saw parts of each game at Robinson Field and SportsmanÂs Park. 1939: Boston rookie Ted Williams became the Â“rst player to hit a home run that cleared the right Â“eld seats at Briggs Stadium in Detroit. It was his Â“rst at-bat at Detroit. The Red Sox edged the Tigers 7-6. 1944: Blacks were allowed to buy grandstand seats for the Â“rst time in St. Louis history. St. Louis was the last of the major league clubs to integrate seating. Negroes had been restricted to the bleachers. 1963: Bob Shaw of the Braves set a major league record by committing Â“ve balks. In the third inning, Shaw walked Billy Williams and balked him home with three straight balks. Shaw lasted Â“ve innings before he was ejected for arguing.

Â„ Tyrrell Hatton did much better at Quail Hollow as a PGA Tour event than he did on the course that hosted the PGA Cham-pionship last summer.Hatton and Peter Mal-nati each had a 4-under 67 and shared the early lead Thursday in the opening round of the Wells Fargo Champi-onship. Rory McIlroy, a two-time winner of this event, was among those one shot behind.Even though a 67 was the low score after the opening round of the PGA Championship, McIlroy said it was clear the course is easier now. The greens arenÂt running as fast and missing the fairway was not as punishing. The leaderboard from the early starters looked nothing like that at the PGA Championship, either. Four of the top six players werenÂt even in the field last August.Hatton was there. He shot rounds of 77-72 to miss the cut. On Thurs-day, he holed out from just over 100 yards in the fairway for eagle on No. 8, and then finished with birdies on the final two holes Â„ two of the toughest at Quail Hollow Â„ for a 67.ÂI got into trouble a few times and I think that was key to my score today. I grinded really well,ÂŽ Hatton said.McIlroy also was at the PGA Championship, even if it didnÂt feel like the same Quail Hollow. He didnÂt break par until the final round (68) as he coped with back spasms toward the end of a tough year.He opened with three birdies in six holes, start-ing on the back nine, and he was mainly slowed by a poor chip that led to him missing an 8-foot par putt on the par-3 sixth hole. Even so, he birdied the three par 5s, and while he was on the wrong side of the ropes a few times, he had few complaints, especially after the way he was hitting the ball during his pro-am. A quick stop at the practice range solved that, and McIlroy was on his way.ÂHit the ball much better today, drove it much better and the course is a little easier than it was last August in the PGA,ÂŽ McIlroy said. ÂEven if you donÂt hit it quite so well, you can still get away with it most times.ÂŽTiger Woods, back at Quail Hollow for the first time in six years, played in the afternoon. He was 1 under at the turn. Also playing late was PGA champion Justin Thomas, with a chance to reach No. 1 in the world.McIlroy in the mix again at Quail Hollow
** C6 Friday, May 4, 2018 | The News HeraldARIES (March 21-April 19) Â„ It may be argued that there is no such thing as perfection in the world, and yet the peaceful feeling that comes over you this afternoon will Â“ t the description. No work required here, because perfection doesnÂt need perfecting. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ Getting someone to like you, buy from you or agree to your plan will be a bit like grabbing at space. So donÂt try for it. Instead, be a model of cool, as attractive as possible in every way. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ Everyone is defensive about something. Finding out what triggers you to act defensively is just the information you need to become mighty. So any challenge to your defenses is a valuable gift. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ When people talk about what theyÂre going to do, youÂll be supportive and encouraging, though part of you wonders if what youÂre hearing is really so. Time will tell. Meanwhile, for you itÂs better to be busy than wordy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Â„ People project their hopes and wishes on each other in the early stage of relationships. Later, with a more accurate picture of what the person is actually like, some of it wonÂt Â“ t. YouÂre Â“ ne with this. You live in reality. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Â„ ItÂs so simple. Rested people are better behaved! Getting more sleep is one of the most effective steps to becoming healthier Â„ plus itÂs free. It will require you to make a plan though. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Â„ YouÂre loveable and down deep you know it, but it sure feels nice to get some feedback to that effect to drive the point home. In fact, people who neglect the niceties run the risk of being replaced by more effusive company. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Â„ You need a teacher to learn. Even Âself-madeÂŽ people have teachers; maybe in the form of books or heroes they model. DonÂt be afraid to try out new teachers. Why take the Â“ rst inÂ” uence that comes along? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Â„ Before you go risking rejection, one thing that might be helpful to Â“ nd out would be what it typically takes to get to Âyes.ÂŽ While atypical things work all the time, youÂll do well to get a little more information on the matter. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Â„ You want to be where thereÂs laughter, color and interest Â„ maybe a little chaos, too. YouÂre due for the sort of fun that canÂt be had where there are a lot of rules to follow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ Paper theories are all well and good, but you canÂt tell how things will Â” y in the so-called real world until you do the experiment. This will take some daring and a bit of money, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Â„ Knowing how a thing is made will either inspire you to like it more or less. Are you ready to Â“ nd out which? This hazy moment of limited knowledge is like a bubble of possibility youÂre not too eager to burst.HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS DIVERSIONSÂTrivia FunÂŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

Check out the new, free JUSTJUMBLE app ÂŽ Â SUDOKUAnswer to yesterdayÂs sudokuDEAR ABBYRetired husbandÂs wardrobe is too casual for wifeÂs comfortDEAR ABBY: When I met my husband, he dressed impeccably Â„ suits, sharp sport coats, monogrammed shirts, freshly pressed dress slacks, top-of-the-line leather shoes. Even when we went out with friends for a casual night or a movie, he still dressed well in current, fashionable clothing. I fell in love with a man who dressed beautifully (my father was known for his attire as well, which is perhaps why I like the successful look). Now that heÂs retired, his jeans always look dingy (theyÂre not dirty; they just look like they are), his sneakers look worn, and he just doesnÂt care about his appearance like he once did. When we go out together, IÂm embarrassed. I love the man who used to care about his appearance, not this retired, sloppy-looking guy. If I complain, he tells me IÂm being ridiculous. Am I wrong to be embarrassed? Â„ LIKES THE OLD LOOKDEAR LIKES: I wish you had mentioned how long you and your husband have been married, because over the last 40 years styles have changed. People of both sexes dress much more casually. Your husband may have dressed more formally years ago because there was a dress code at work and it was expected with the crowd with whom you socialized or the places you went. At this point, he may feel that because heÂs retired he has earned the right to dress Âcomfortably.ÂŽ Yes, you are wrong to be embarrassed. What is important is how your husband feels about himself. How he presents himself is a reflection only on him Â„ not you. You might suggest a shopping trip so the two of you can update those jeans and sneakers, but if he wonÂt bite, you would be wise to let him off the hook.DEAR ABBY: My significant other and I have five children between us. He has a son and daughter from a previous marriage, I have a daughter from a previous relationship, and we have two daughters together. I love all our children equally, but my significant other complains nonstop about my daughter from the previous relationship. He nags about every little thing she does, which he never does with his own children. I have talked to him many times about the favoritism he shows toward his kids over my daughter. I understand sheÂs not perfect, but how can I get him to treat all of the children equally? Â„ EQUALLY CONFUSED IN TEXASDEAR EQUALLY CONFUSED: Children arenÂt stupid. In fact, they are very perceptive. IÂm sure your daughter recognizes that the man her mother lives with doesnÂt like her and treats her differently. If you canÂt get through to him that what heÂs doing is unfair and damaging to your child, and that he needs to tone it down, then explain to her the reason why itÂs happening. And if necessary, enlist the help of a licensed family therapist to change the dynamic.

E4 Friday, May 4, 2018 | UNDERCURRENTS Two of my favorite days of the year arrive this weekend: Star Wars Day on Friday, and Free Comic Book Day on Saturday. Fans will celebrate ÂMay the Fourth Be With YouÂŽ in St. Andrews with a lightsaber melee in Oaks by the Bay Park starting about 7:22 p.m. (sunset). Prior to that, members of the 501st Legion (a costume group that specializes in armored Star Wars characters such as stormtroopers and Mandalorian mercs) will hang outat Floriopolis, 1125 Beck Ave., from 5-7 p.m. Admission is free and the public is encouraged to suit up for the fun. As the merchants of St. Andrews explain it, ÂStar Wars Day is what you make it: come costumed, play the part, bring games and garb.ÂŽ Several of the merchants and restaurants in the area will have Star Wars-related specials throughout the day. The next morning, area comic book shops will mark Free Comic Book Day (or FCBD) with massive giveaways and sales. Since 2002, independent comic shops have marked the day with special titles produced just for the event. Many shops also hold sales, raffles and other giveaways as well. Panama City sports three comic book shops, and each of them will have special deals on Saturday:Arena Comics and Gaming, 1366 W. 15th St., will have most back issues for $1 each, and comics from the discount bins for 25 cents each, along witha discount table of trade paperbacks ($5 each or five for $20) and hardcovers ($10 each). ÂI do believe that it is still one of the best tools for helping to develop new readers,ÂŽ said Arena owner James Finlayson.ÂThe event brings them in the door, and then it is our job to turn them into readers that return.It helps bring a lot of attention to the hobby and the shops as well.ÂŽComic Emporium, 2403 N. U.S. 231, will have a sneak peek for current customers and open to the general public at 10 a.m. The shop is marking18 years in business and16 years hosting FCBD. Guests are limited to two FCBD special editions per customer, but there are plenty of other specials to enjoy: Standard back issues will be two for a dollar; 25-percent off premium back issues and graphic novels; 10-percent off everything else in the store. In addition,meet the Warhammer gang and sit in on one of the shopÂs many RPG groups including Pathfinder, Star Wars Legion,and Dungeons & Dragons. There will also be ademo of thenew augmented realitygame, ÂReign of Cthulhu,ÂŽ which allows players to battle each other using creatures from the works of H.P. Lovecraft. ÂWe look forward to this event every year,ÂŽ said owner Greg Ray. ÂItÂs a chance for us to show our appreciation to the fans and maybe make a few new ones. There will be sales on everything in the store including all of our games and back issues.ÂŽNew Force Comics, 2421 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., will open at 8 a.m. with photo opportunities with Spider-Man and a young Black Panther, as well as members of the 501st.In addition to the FCBD issues, trade paperbacks will be buy one/get one free, new comics will be half price, statues and toys will be marked down 10-25 percent, and Pop figures will be buy two/get one free. Owner Rick Whitelock called this his biggest sale ever. ÂI would think this could be the biggest FCBD ever,ÂŽWhitelock added. ÂThereÂs so much momentum with all the comic-based movies and TV shows. ThereÂs more quality than ever, and social media is a driving force. The amount of interest in the hobby has doubled since we opened, and not just in the same demographic. WeÂre seeing younger, more diverse and female readers. ItÂs a great time to be a fan of this medium.ÂŽGeek weekend promises fun times Tony SimmonsSpider-Man will pose for photos with customers at New Force Comics on Saturday as part of the Free Comic Book Day celebration.

E6 Friday, May 4, 2018 | GO & DOBy Tony Simmons747-5080 | @PCNHTonyS email@example.comPANAMA CITY Â„ Even a blind sailor can find a port, or so the organizers of this yearÂs third annual Blindfolded Regatta believe. The Panama City Lions Club will hold its yearly fundraising event at the St. Andrews Bay Yacht Club,218 Bunkers Cove Road in Panama City, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. The entry fee for a team of two Â„ one blindfolded rower and one sighted navigator Â„ is$20. Many businesses sponsor teams, and some will sponsor a boat to besailed bymembers of the Rutherford High School Leo Club, the youth branch of the Lions Club. Trophies will be awarded. ÂWhen you enter, youÂll be given a time for your boat race or heat,ÂŽ said Camilla Meyerson, spokeswoman for the Lions Club. ÂI think the interest and fun is building.ÂŽ In addition to the team races, which will be divided into six heats, the public is invited to purchase raffle tickets for a variety of fun prizes Â„ including Sailing School lessons given by Yacht Club Waterfront Director Nick Cumbie. Lunch and soft drinks will be available, and adult beverages will be for sale. Civic organizations and businesses are encouraged to rent 10-by-10-foot tent spaces for displays. All proceeds go to support the Lions Club sight conservation services benefiting the needy in Bay County. For details, contact Nicole at 850-215-1700 or visit Facebook.com/ PanamaCityLionsClub. ÂA number of local officials participated (in past years), including Bill Kinsaul, Mark Andersen, Jerry Register, Bill Husfelt, former congressional candidate Ken Sukhia, and others, as well as local businesses,ÂŽ said Lions Club President Albert J. Sauline III, a local attorney.ÂThe Rutherford High School Leo Club will be participating as well.All proceeds go toward helping those battling eyesight issues in Bay County, such as eye exams, glasses, certain surgical procedures, etc.ÂŽ The Lions Club doesnÂt only help locals with theirvision, Saulinepointed out in a News Herald interview last summer. ÂWe do stuff to help them with hearing aids. We just donated crutches and wheelchairs, and other things we do in the community with Guardian ad Litem. When we give someone eye glasses, the only that person who knows is the person wearing them. ItÂs not like eyeglasses have our name on them. People donÂt always see,ÂŽ Sauline said. ÂWhat makes it special to me is I had eyesight trouble Â„ a partially detached and torn retina in one eye and lattice degeneration in both eyes. Even though I can see Â‡, I have undergone surgeries. When you have a surgical procedure, you are given a numbing shot and for 12 hours I had the experience of being blind in one eye Â„ a very, very unique experience for anybody. ItÂs one thing to cover an eye; itÂs another to literally have your eye open and not be able to see.ÂŽ Rutherford is the only high school in Bay County with aLeo Club, according to members. The Leo Club helped out with the 2017 Blindfolded Regatta, as well as theannualFourth of July Gopher Turtle race. ÂAll of the children have been encouraged to attend to get summer service hours and to participate in a longstanding activity,ÂŽ Rutherford teacher Jennifer Alvis, the school-based sponsor of the Leo Club, told The News Herald in 2017. SUMMER SAILING Cumbie will lead a Summer Sailing Programstarting June 11. Designed toaccommodate all interests and skill levels, the camp is based on the U.S. Sailing curriculum. To sign up, or for more information, call 850-7692453 or email nick@stabyc. com. The program is open to the public, with no Yacht Club membership required. Session 1 will be June 11-14 and June 18-22 (for a total of nine days); Session 2 is June 25-29; Session 3 is July 9-20; and Session 4 is July 23-Aug. 3.

E10 Friday, May 4, 2018 | By JAN WADDY747-5072 | @PCNHJanWaddy firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ ThereÂs a taco party waiting for you. I was looking forward to the Grand LagoonÂs Tacos & Tequila Fest, but since weÂll have to wait till next spring, I decided to createmy own taco partyat area restaurants.Sometimes you even have to invite yourself to someone elseÂs taco party, as was the case when my husband recently ordered a Lobster Taco at Los Antojitos in St. Andrews. Other times,a love for tacosjust canÂt be contained, as in the case of Muy Wayne OÂs owners Wayne and Leesa Day, who became known as theÂtaco banditsÂŽwhen they delivered between nearly 100 of their breakfast tacos all over the beach before opening in 2013. Voting ended Sunday for the News HeraldÂs Best of Bay competition, which included a new category this year, tacos, suggested by Juan Taco owner Juan Martinez. Juan Taco, whichopened in November on the grounds of Laketown Wharf,made it into the top 5. The Top 5 alsoincluded Los Antojitos, DiegoÂs Burrito Factory, Finns Island Style Grub, and PepperÂs Mexican Grill & Cantina Â„ which has turned Cinco de Mayo into a weekend celebration. (The Top 5 for Mexican food also included Los Antojitos, DiegoÂs and PepperÂs, as well as MaddieÂs La Casita, and El Jalisco.)1. JUAN TACO, 9902 S. Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach: Chefs Juan Martinez and Jose Duarte hadme atÂhomemade tortillas.ÂŽ Everything is better built on freshwarm, softflour or corn tortillas. If youÂre thinking about just going for one taco, make it a Pork Belly with guajillo sauce, shredded cabbage, pickled onion and cilantro on a homemade flour tortilla Â„ but you wonÂt want to stop there. Sit down at the taqueria with a few friendsand make the rounds with Pollo (chicken), Carnitas (pork), Barbacoa (shredded beef), steak, Camaron (Shrimp), and Lengua (tongue) Â„ when they arenÂt sold out. Per customersÂ requests, Jose (a native of Hermosillo in northern Mexico) created a Veggie with zucchini squash, sweet potato, corn, black beans, chipotle cream, cotija cheese, and cilantro that was inspired by his momÂs recipe for Calabacitas. El Chingon (steak, shrimp and guacamole)also has been added to the menu. JoseÂs traditional barbacoa (like a flavorful pot roast) refers to the way the beef is seasoned and slow cooked, not the part of the cow. (If you want cabesa,see La Michoacana below.) Juan TacoÂs slowcooked carnitas are a mix of pulled (to order) and chunks of pork Â„ packing in more flavorfromthe fat and crust of the whole pork shoulder. They even make their own salsa rojo and salsa verde, as well as habanero sauce. And ifthey canÂt get it fresh,it will be marked off the chalkboard menu.2. LA MICHOACANA LATIN MARKET, 4003 W. 18th St., Panama City: A taco trio makes it easierto narrow down the choices of the authentic Mexican street tacos, but I could eat more than three of these at this hidden gem I discovered in 2015. My picks include Carnitas on a soft white corn tortilla with fresh cilantro, white onion and lime served with hot salsa and tomatillo sauce, spicy chorizo (Mexican sausage) and bistek (steak); donÂt forget the Mexican Coca-Cola. Other fillings include Pollo, Carne Asada, Al Pastor (seasoned pork), Lengua, Tripe, Cabesa (cow head) and Milenzea (breaded steak).3. DIEGOÂS BURRITO FACTORY, 15514 Front Beach Road and 6209 Sunset Drive, Panama City Beach: Omar Taleb, who owns both locations with brothers Ismael Barragan and Silvino Barragan,created his own taco party with Al Pastor, Carnitas Taco party: Hold on to top tacos FOOD & DRINKFIESTASSee the GO & DO: Calendar, starting on page E36, for this weekend's Cinco de Mayo Â“ estas at area restaurants. ItÂs easy to taste why the Pork Belly Taco is popular at Juan Taco. [JAN WADDY/NEWS HERALD FILE PHOTOS] A taco trio at La Michoacana Latin Market features Carnitas, Chorizo and Bistek. My customized Carnitas feature extra cilantro and pico de gallo at DiegoÂs Burrito Factory. Mexican street tacos at MaddieÂs La Casita include Carnitas. See TACO, 11
| Friday, May 4, 2018 E11and Shrimp taco. Customize your Mexican street tacos with fillings that also include Steak, Ground Beef, and ChickenÂ„ all served withonion, cilantro and fresh lime. I like to add a little more fresh cilantro and pico de gallo to the CarnitasÂ„ my go-to. With so many options, you can throw a different taco party every time at whatever location is most convenient.4. MADDIEÂS LA CASITA, 561 Harrison Ave., Panama City: Owner Maria Galvan, who took over in May 2017, carries on a family tradition at MaddieÂs. Her family had run La Fiesta on 15th Street for nearly 20 years. MaddieÂs La Casita serves authentic Mexican street tacos, such as my favorite Carnitas and Chorizo Street Tacos in homemade soft white corn tortillas with fresh cilantro, onion and lime. Mexican street tacos initially were served on a separate Mexican menu by request, but became so popular they are now a fixture on the regular menu. MariaÂs favorites are the Carne Asada and Tinga tacos, as well as the chipotle chicken. MaddieÂs will serve food and drink specials from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday for the Cinco de Mayo Celebracin.5. FINNS ISLAND STYLE GRUB, 7210 Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach; and Finns at Little Village, 2808 W. 12th St., Panama City: Thankfully, youÂre never too far from Finns Â„ whether hanging out at the beach or sitting on the deck beneath the strings of lights looking out over Lake Ware in St. Andrews. From Carne Asade to Killer Carnita and Fish Tacos, they fix them up right. The Fish Tacos (meaty grilled Mahi Mahi with cabbage, pico, cheese, cilantro, Valentina and white sauce) are so on point, owners Justin and Karen Buxton plan to keep their recipe the same when theTacos & Tequila Fest competition takes place. Other FinnsÂ taco options include Ahi Tuna, Shrimpy Taco, BeachÂn Yardbird and Veggie.6. LOS ANTOJITOS, 1236 Beck Ave., Panama City: The taco menu alone is cause for celebration at the landmark on Lake Ware (on the other side of the pond from Finns).Owners Matt and Mynta Harbison have proven bigger is better after relocating from U.S. 98, where theyran Los Antojitos for nearly 15 years, to thenew expansive location in November 2016. Not only are there traditional options, such as steak, and Gulf Coast favorites, like shrimp, but also lobster. Make your own surf and turf taco party platter with one Peruvian Steak Taco (marinated grilled steak with caramelized onion, aji verde aioli and Monterey Jack cheese) and one lobster, MyntaÂs favorite featuring tempura battered lobster lightly fried and topped with mango slaw and cilantro aioli. Or mix upyour seafood withone fish and one shrimp. (Or just skip the rice and beans all together and go full-on tacos.) The fish and shrimp both are lightly fried and topped with jalapeno coleslaw, Monterey Jack and pico de gallo. Side by side, they complement each other and offer different textures Â„ soft, flaky fishpaired withslightly crisp shrimp; why choose? The Grilled MahiTacos featured Mahi Mahi topped with lettuce, chipotle mayo and pico de gallo, while the Salmon Tacos are filled with blackened salmon, pickled red cabbage, radish, red onion, cilantro aioli and pico de gallo. You can even get any of the tacos on a lettuce wrap Â„ so if youÂre cutting carbs, thereÂs no need to cut out tacos.7. MUY WAYNE OÂS, 303 S. Arnold Road, Panama City Beach:Tex-Mex meets barbecue with thebrisket taco, the best of both worlds for this native Texan.Owners Wayne and Leesa Day, who relocated from Houston, Texas,serve a Carnevale Carnivore featuring juicy and flavorful smoked brisket, grilled onions andbell peppers and shredded cheese in agrande sized flour tortilla. The brisket slow cooks 12 to 16 hours. They also do a mean breakfast taco, a staple of my youth, as well as fish tacos, shrimp tacosand oyster tacos, a more recent addition.8. GARYÂS OYSTER SHACK, 1320 N. Tyndall Parkway, Panama City: Mahi Tacos feature grilled seasoned (or fried or blackened) Mahi Mahi in two grilled tortillas with Jalapeno Slaw and House Sauce Â„ a craveable combo, especially paired with a side such as cheese grits.9. RUNAWAY ISLAND, 14521 Front Beach Road, Panama City Beach: You canÂt go wrong from tacos on special with blackened fish, Baja with fried fish, Shrimpor Asian Tacos: Two flour tortillas filled with sashimi tuna, blackened and seared rare with crunchy Sriracha cole slaw and creamy wasabi lime cream Â„ paired with the view from the back deck overlooking the beach. Gouda grits are available as a side after 4 p.m. TACOFrom Page 10Finns Fish Tacos feature grilled Mahi Mahi.

E16 Friday, May 4, 2018 | MEET THE MIXOLOGISTKristy Lynne Smith747-5087 @PCNHKristyLynne firstname.lastname@example.orgName, Age: Danielle (Dani) Parham, 33Years bartending: 5 yearsBar location: Players Saloon, 4300 W. U.S.98, Panama CityDo you have another job or what was your last job? ÂIÂm actually in the police academy with Gulf Coast and I hope to investigate sex crimes.ÂŽFavorite Drink to make: ÂThere are so many I like to make, but probably Nuclear Iced Tea. ItÂs vodka, rum, gin, triple sec, Midori, sweetand sour mix, and soda water. The drink recipe calls for Sprite, but the drink is sweet enough by itself, so I use soda water instead.ÂŽWhatÂs the most sold drink in the bar? ÂHennessy or Remi and Redbull.ÂŽWhen someone says Âsurprise me,ÂŽ whatÂs your go-to drink? ÂUsually theyÂll say Âsomething fruityÂ so IÂll make them my drink, a Nuclear Iced Tea, or a Watermelon Popsicle. We also have something called the Players Punch that the ladies love.ÂŽHave you created your own concoction? ÂI did create something called ÂPassionate Sex.Â I was actually bartending at a strip club when I made it. ItÂs just made with different fruit flavored rums. Pineapple Parrot Bay Rum, Passion fruit Parrot Bay rum, peach schnapps, sweet and sour, splash of grenadine, Sprite. I also have my version of a Rum Punch that we can feature.ÂŽWhich cocktail do you dread making? ÂI hate blue curacao because it gets on everything and stains. I have to make a lot of those here.ÂŽWhen do you know when a customer has had too much? ÂI look for eye contact, if they are leaning heavily on the bar, slurred speech, and how well they can get their money out. I was typically get them water, ask them if they need some air, call security for a little assistance getting air. If that doesnÂt work, IÂll call a cab and get them home.ÂŽWhat do you think makes this bar special? ÂWhen I first came here... I had been bartending for a long time, but a club is a different atmosphere, however the employees make this place special. I was immediately welcomed. Lala and Trina opened up to me and theyÂve been really good to me. We have a good relationships here between day and night staff. We donÂt have the day versus night war like some bars have. We are a family and all families fight, but we work out our differences.ÂŽWhat activities do you enjoy outside the bar? ÂI like to be with my kids and husband. We donÂt have family here. I mean, I do have a step-sister who manages the SandBar, but other than that itÂs just us. I put a lot of work and effort into school. Education is very important to me and my children. As much as I love bartending, this is not what i want to do for the rest of my life.ÂŽWhat is your personal drink of choice? ÂMy version of a Rum Punch. IÂm very allergic to vodka, so I have to be very careful with what I drink. So when I make drinks for people using vodka, I canÂt taste them to make sure they are right. I just hope for the best.ÂŽDani tickles your sweet tooth at Players Â€Captain Morgan Watermelon Smash Â€Captain Morgan Spiced Rum Â€Sweet and sour mix Â€Cranberry juice Â€Top with Sprite HOW DOES IT TASTE? ÂThis is what a watermelon mixed drink should taste like. ItÂs crisp and light. ItÂs a great mixed drink.ÂŽ Â„ Kristy Lynne SmithDaniÂs Rum PunchDani Parham is one of the smiling faces behind the bar at Players on U.S. 98. [PHOTOS BY KRISTY LYNNE SMITH/THE NEWS HERALD]
| Friday, May 4, 2018 E17 I never sighted fish onthe flats, just cobia, until this past year. I didnÂt even know you could sight fish the flats until last year. We showed up to the first tournament last year, and about 20 boats had what looked to be custommade cobia towers off the bow. The towers struck my curiosity, so I asked. That is when I found out about sight fishing reds. What I didnÂt find out was the technique. After that tournament, I researched by reading, watching videos and talking to people. It looked simple: Set up a ladder of some sort, creep the flats, and cast at reds. Little did I know, that is not even close. I became confused and frustrated, and it looked a lot easier on the YouTube videos and articles I read. Since that first time trying, when we have fun weekends (not tournaments), I have tried sight fishing reds until now I can catch them 50 to 60 percentof the time. Sight fishing comes down to height, presentation, conditions and optics. The first time we tried it, we set up a 2-foot platform stool on the bow. We crept the flats looking for reds, and cast at the ones we saw. We didnÂt see very many (if any, they might have been mullet), and when we cast, they spooked. We spent the whole day moving around the flats, casting and catching nothing. I thought the 2-foot platform was good until I usedmy friendÂs 6-foot tower. Every foot higher allows 20 more feet of visibility. With a 6-foot tower, I can stay 120 feet offshore and still see to the water line with good conditions. You can still see from a 2-foot tower (I have a 3-foot tower on my boat), just not as far as a 6-foot tower. In the skinnies with clear water, the fish are very spooky and presentation is important. If it doesnÂt look natural or lands too close, they scare off. Throw past them, not on their head, and bring the bait at a 45 in front of their faces and wait for the thump. It is like a pinfish thump on steroids. Be prepared, sometimes that spooks them. Other times you throw about 10 feet from them, slightly move it until you get the fishesÂ attention, then let it sit. Fish will usually pick it up. The best piece of information I have ever been given or heard from other tournament anglers: ÂYou have to make it the fishÂs idea to eat your bait.ÂŽ Conditions are probably the second most important part of sight fishing. You want calm, clear, sunny days; obviously you donÂt want rainy, overcast or choppy. When you go sight fishing, the wind and your shadow are the biggest things to keep in mind. Youalways want your back to the wind. If you go against the wind and the mild chop, you will cause hull slap and vibrations. You will never get close enough to see the fish with slap and vibrations. Sometimes to have the wind to your back, you will cast a shadow. Be aware where your shadow is at all times, and avoid casting the shadow where youÂre looking if possible. The most important part of sight fishing is optics. You canÂt catch what you canÂt see. What you do see probably isnÂt what you think it is. I had worn Costas since 2010; everyone swore by them, so I wore them. When we started tournament fishing and sight fishing, I realized there must be better on the market. I researched and narrowed it down to Redtail Republic and another company that had similar products created in Idaho for skiing. If I was snow skiing, I would have bought them. I went with Redtail Republic, a made-in-theUSA sunglass company created by a fishing guide from Texas, with inputs from other guides. They are lightweight, eight-layer base glass lenses with sightline polarization. People donÂt believe the difference great glasses make until I let them try my amber base/ green lens Redtails. The last guy fishing with me offered to buy the ones off my face and I could have his Costas after he tried them and could see what I was seeing from the same elevation. Withn the clarity, eye protection and the way it cuts the glare off the water and allows me to find the right fish, I will probably never wear another brand. Remember, you get what you pay for. I reached out to RedtailRepublic.com, and they gave me a 20-percentdiscount code, liquiddreamfishingteam, to use withNews Herald readers.

"Being an official venue is really a matter of somebody that has something to bring in the mix. People have a chance to go from one venue to another; the best motorcycle events are events where you can ride. We have grown from a very small event to beyond regional now, on the cusp of a national event.ÂŽ One of the popular acts returning this year is Circus Una, an all-female highwire stunt act, which includes flying trapeze-style balancing acts with a motorcycle on the highwire.

E26 Friday, May 4, 2018 | News Herald Staff ReportPANAMA CITY Â„ An imaginative program awaits all who attend ÂHow Suite It IsÂŽ on Saturday at the Marina Civic Center, as the familyfocused finale of the Panama City Pops OrchestraÂs 22nd season takes patrons on a magical vacation from Norway to Never Never Land. The first half of the evening will be the dramatic and adventurous Peer Gynt Suite No. 2 by Edvard Grieg. Friend to Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, Grieg composed almost two dozen numbers for the authorÂs new fairy tale, premiered in 1876. Immediately beloved, the score was fashioned into two suites for orchestra. The second, lesser known suite will be performed, highlighting the loveable characterÂs wanderlust and eventual return home. Some 35 years after IbsenÂs success, Scottish novelist and playwright James M. Barrie composed one of the most beloved works about a mischievous boy who can fly. Peter Pan, a symbol of youthfulescapism, has been portrayed in countless dramatic and musical media. The orchestra will perform one of themost recent musical adaptations, the Northwest Florida BalletÂs original composition by Pops Conductor David Ott. ÂTo have a fairy tale thatÂs constantly spinning out varieties of ideas, to capture that in music, that became the real fun,ÂŽOtt said. ÂThe most exciting pieces of the 300-page, 80-minute score have now been edited to 30 minutes of extracts from the ballet score, taking the family flying through the adventures of Peter, Wendy and the Lost Boys.ÂŽ Also Saturday, the Pops will conduct two raffles. One is for the framed gicle ÂBig City MusicÂŽ by renowned artist Paul Brent, the featured work on this seasonÂs Panama City Pops Orchestra marketing materials. BrentÂs workis on display at thePanama City Center for the Arts until the final Popsconcert. The second is for a piece of custom designed jewelry created and donated by David Adamson Designer Jewelry. ÂEquilibriumÂŽ is a one-of-a-kind pendant composed of an 8.38 carat Green Chrome Tourmaline, an 11.4 millimeter Peacock colored Tahitian pearl, and 20 diamonds, set in 14k white and yellow gold.

| Friday, May 4, 2018 E27 JAM SESSIONBy Tony Simmons747-5080 | @PCNHTonyS firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ Ford Seeuws was a secondgrader at Covenant Christian School when he first picked up a violin. ÂMy teacher, Mrs. Kelly, brought in a set of instruments, and I remember the violin, picking that up, and thinking I was the man when I sawed on it and made some noise,ÂŽ he said after performing several pieces on the violin for the News Herald Jam Session on April 27. He got his own violin later that year, andwent to what was then Gulf Coast Community College to hear a symphonic performance. One of the violinists theretook him on as a private student despite his youth. ÂShe was really such a formative part of my life,ÂŽ Seeuws said of Arlene Conrad, who still plays as first violin in the Panama City Pops Orchestra. After many years abroad, Seeuws has joined the Pops and plays second fiddle to Conrad. ÂSheÂll still scold me for not practicing Â„ as she should. ... She took me under her wing. I fell in love with it. I remember whatever piece they played ringing in my ear that whole night.ÂŽ Seeuws has tried to incorporate his violin into whatever other project heÂs working on. He goes by ÂThe Surfing ViolinistÂŽ on his YouTube channel and Instagram. ÂIÂve learned a lot through the instrument,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt was a gimmick for my YouTube channel, but it opened opportunities. On my YouTube channel, I try to emphasize the cross-pollination between different pursuits.ÂŽ A Bay County native, Seeuws is husband to Melissa and father to Satya and Rohan. The family lived for several years in India, which resulted in a documentary film about their experience, ÂAmerican Indian.ÂŽ They started the adventure by learning Hindi, then Seeuws took a jobat a tourism/travel company to make short videosabout Indiandestinations. ÂI started vlogging (video blogging) in 2011 on the spur of the moment,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe were excited, moving over to India, and it was going to be a new adventure.ÂŽ The vlogs became a regularshow about the food, culture, music, film and the people they met. Two years into it, a local coffee shop in Delhi asked if he had a film to show, so he put together a 75-minute feature from his vlogs thatpremiered in Delhi. It also sold online. ÂReal life isnÂt always so clean and tidy. I was happy with the way we did it. It was not reality TV, it was relational media,ÂŽ he said. ÂFrom that, we ended up with a sizable Indian audience. They were refreshed by this no nonsense tone, so they took to it.ÂŽ Since returning to the states, Seeuws has been grieving this loss of India, and he started working on a new series of vlogs about mental health, ÂBuilding a Better Me.ÂŽ He hopes it will find an audience that will benefit from it. HeÂs also teaching violin to fifth-graders at University Academy in Panama City, givingprivate lessons, and playing with the Panama City Pops. Seeuws will be on stage at the Marina Civic Center with the Pops for ÂHow Suite It Is,ÂŽ the final show of the orchestraÂs season, starting at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. The show will include the dramatic and adventurous ÂPeer Gynt Suite No. 2ÂŽ by Edvard Grieg and the ÂPeter Pan SuiteÂŽ by Pops Conductor and Music Director David Ott. ÂItÂs been a blessing that even in Bay County weÂve always had access to some amount of music education and the arts and orchestras,ÂŽ he said, adding that heÂd always prefer playing to listening. ÂI havedifficulty going and watching live music, especially big musical acts, because nothing quite feels like actually performing it when you have the timpani rumbling in your diaphragm.ÂŽSeeuws nds outlets in lm, violinNEXT JAM SESSIONWho: Billy Rader, Panama City commissioner When: 3 p.m. Friday, May 4 Where: In the News Herald newsroom and live-streaming on Facebook.com/ PanamaCityNewsHerald Ford Seeuws of Panama City Beach performs on his violin at the News Herald Jam Session on April 27.

ÂMy husband and I used to do arts and crafts, and the Spring Festival of the Arts was always our favorite show,ÂŽ said Valerie Lynch-Beaudin, who organized the festival. ÂItÂs such a beautiful area under the oaks, never too hot.ÂŽ The St. Thomas Art in the Park festival will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 5 and 6, in McKenzie Park, 36 Oak Ave., Panama City. Enjoy live entertainment all day under the gazebo while browsing the tents featuring work by the finest artists and craftspeople in the Southeast. Admission is free for this family-orientedevent. Now retired, LynchBeaudin decided to tackle the annual festival when the Spring Festival of the Arts ended andit became apparent that no one else was interested in it. She approached her church group, the Episcopal Church Women at St. Thomas By the Bay in Panama City, to act as volunteers and sponsors. ÂThis is the perfect opportunity for us to do some outreach and promote the arts in downtown Panama City,ÂŽ Lynch-Beaudin said.

| Friday, May 4, 2018 E33Each week, locals Cole Schneider and Matt Greene share their different takes on new movies out in area theaters. For podcasts and more, visit MovietownMovieClub.com Matt: ÂAvengers: In nity WarÂ delivers thrills Pardon the clich, but ÂInfinity WarÂŽ is truly an emotional rollercoaster. Unlike previous entries in this long-running behemoth of super-people, this rideÂs ascents and dives come faster and furious-er than Vin Diesel driving a sports car through a skyscraper window. And (at the risk of really pushing the metaphor) this coasterÂs biggest drop comes seconds before you exit the ride, leaving audiences with a sense of ÂWhoaÂƒ,ÂŽ unlike most other comic book films. To clarify, this isnÂt the best MCU film. For one thing, better entries in the series say something outside of themselves. ÂIron ManÂŽ touches on the military-industrial complex. ÂSpider-ManÂŽ deals with modern-day class issues. All the Captain America entries wrestle brilliantly with government overreach. ÂInfinity WarÂŽ is (for better or worse) focused on plot and character. In spots, it lands its punches (ThorÂs arc, ThanosÂ brutality, anything Guardians); in others, it misses (initial attack on NYC, Visionand Scarlet Witch love story, anything Cap). ItÂs a gargantuan undertaking, and your investment in the story and forgiveness of its unwieldiness will only go as far as your predetermined commitment. If you havenÂt been keeping up with the franchise (which is essentially a bigbudget television show), this is not the episode to jump in on Â„ a10 years/18 films/50+ superheroes bottleneck whose ambition has only been matched by its success. By its very nature, thereÂs only so much you can do to keep this thing from flying off the rails. However, if youÂre already committed, then the endless barrage of humor and excitement, which crescendos into an unexpected emotional gut-punch, will make for a haunting and bold (though not quite fantastic) Marvel outing. Rating: out of Cole: ÂAvengers: In nity WarÂ skims surface ÂAvengers: Infinity WarÂŽ is finally here! The great villain Thanos has finally arrived! What will our cast of 30 superheroes do to stand up to him? Well, the movie opens with a scene that tramples on the entire message of ÂThor: RagnarokÂŽ and ends with an action that we know will be trampled on in an upcoming film. In other words, ÂInfinity WarÂŽ (and the MCU) is cheating us once again. Roger Ebert famously said that movies are like machines that generate empathy. What Marvel doesnÂt understand is the critical difference between empathy and sympathy. Without getting into what happens at the end of the film, letÂs examine the villain. Thanos is essentially the main character, as itÂs he who drives the story forward. I love how dangerous he is, but he simply doesnÂt make sense, psychologically. Thanos wants to kill half the universeÂs population for balance. ItÂs a dopey philosophy, but thatÂs okay. ItÂs not the philosophy, which is the problem, but the psychology. He tells us he loves his daughter, yet we donÂt understand why. Nothing about their expressed relationship makes that ring true dramatically. So when Thanos acts against her, we only understand that itÂs hard for him. We donÂt really understand why and we certainly donÂt feel the weight of his decision. ItÂs just one of many things in ÂInfinity WarÂŽ that will elicit sympathy without evoking empathy. ÂInfinity War,ÂŽ like most the other Marvel films, does an impeccable job of creating exciting, fun moments, which are all superficial and donÂt in any way help the story or its characters move. Marvel deserves real credit for that, but it rarely means anything more.Rating: out of ÂAvengers: In nity WarÂ surprises MOVIETOWN MOVIE CLUB Director: Joe Russo, Anthony Russo Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Josh Brolin Rated: PG-13 (intense sequences of sci-Â“ violence and action throughout, language and some crude references)ÂAvengers: In nity WarÂFrom left, Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Benedict Wong star in ÂAvengers: InÂ“ nity War.ÂŽ [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO]
