Call 850-747-5050 By Eryn Dion 747-5069 | @PCNHErynDion Editors Note: This May, the News Herald will feature a story on mental health in the community every Sunday in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month. PANAMA CITY „ Ah, teenagers. Always such a joy. With a reputation for being moody and a little bit out of their minds, it can be hard for a parent to pick up on the signs that theres something more than just hormones at play with their middle schooler and that they might actually need help with their mental health. For Mental Health Awareness Month, The News Herald has been running a story every Sunday tackling different topics under the mental health umbrella. This week, we spoke to guidance counselors about the signs parents should look out for when it comes to their children and how to get help if they need it. Signs and symptomsEvery child, when they get to middle school, loses their mind a little bit, said Crystal Wicker, a guidance counselor at Mowat Middle School. Thats normal. But its when those changes in mood or behavior get to the extreme that parents need to worry, she said. A normal teenager may become withdrawn from their parents at that age, but if theyre overly withdrawn, that can be cause for concern. A shift in eating Keeping up with your teens mental health NATION & WORLD | A4ISRAEL AND UNITED ARAB EMIRATESO cially, their governments dont speak, but in reality, the governments have a common enemy in Iran About 45 percent of children scored below level considered to be ready for kindergartenBy Ryan McKinnon Nearly half of the children who attended a state-funded voluntary pre-kindergarten program last year were not ready for kindergarten this year, according to the preliminary results of a new test administered last fall. The test results are not yet official and are pending the approval of the State Board of Education on May 16. A summary of the results provided to the Herald-Tribune by the Office of Early Learning show that roughly 45 percent of VPK children scored below the threshold to be considered ready for school. Additionally, 42 percent of VPK providers would be put on probation this year for having fewer than 60 percent of their children pass, but the OEL is asking for a one-year grace period because the state is using a new test to determine readiness. This years low scores can be partially attributed to the new test, officials say. We expect performance to improve in future years,Ž OEL spokeswoman Elizabeth Moya Tests indicate voluntary pre-k kids unprepared News Herald Staff PANAMA CITY „ There's no doubt about it, our mom's help shape who we are. Some of their advice „ like make your bed everday „ we carry with us through our entire lives. Other times, it's about chances they let us take or the example they set.

The 87-year-old said long before her son became the long-time Bay County Sheriff and the head of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement he showed signs of being interested in that career path. In fact, when he was 4 or 5 years old Guy Tun-nell, who is now 66, used to enjoy washing the cars at the Bay County Sheriffs Department, where his grandmother worked as the first female deputy in Bay County and his great uncle was sheriff from 1925 to 1937, Libby Tunnell said. They would just treat him like a grown up,Ž she said. He thought he was grown up. He was only probably 4 or 5 then. They adopted him down there. Theyd let him wash cars, things like that, when he was a little-bitty boy. He enjoyed it.Ž It was during that same period, he used to run around the house with toy guns wearing his Davy Crockett frontiersman outfit with coon skin hat, which was all the rage at the time. Santa Claus brought him all this Davy Crockett stuff,Ž she said. That is the year his dad was overseas.Ž Libby Tunnell gave birth to Guy Tunnell at Tyndall Air Force base, where her husband was a navigator. She said her son had an independent spirit at a young age. Always has been that way. Just like me,Ž she said. I can remember one time my husband took him out to Tyndall and says to Guy, Now you stay in the car. He came back and Guy was gone. He found him at the air police office sitting on the desk. They were giving him ice cream. It scared my husband to death. Guy was 2 or 3. He decided he wanted to get out of that car.Ž She said that independent spirit has served her son well in law enforcement and politics. Tunnell is on his last term as Bay County Commissioner, recently announcing he is going to retire after a 35-year career in law enforcement as well as his time as a commissioner. He just got it in his blood I guess to be a politician or in law enforcement,Ž Libby said. She said she didnt feel nervous about her sons safety while he worked law enforcement, thinking he could take care of himself. Hes always been big,Ž she said. "I was used to men folks (in the family) being under fire.Ž The Tunnell family roots in Bay County run deep.Libby's father retired to Lynn Haven in 1920s from Illinois. For 19 years, Libby Tunnell has lived in a family home in Lynn Haven that was her grandparents homesince 1915. She was born in the house. During the last 4th of July parade in Lynn Haven, she was the grand marshal of the parade, the oldest Lynn Haven native in the parade. Her family, the Hobbs, came to Bay County in 1905 when Bay County didnt exist and it was known as Washington County. My father used to say he came down here and married a cracker and ended up with whole national biscuit company,Ž she said. Libby TunnellBy Eryn Dion 747-5069 | @PCNHErynDion PANAMA CITY „ A quick Google search of habits of successful peopleŽ will yield hundreds of books on the subject, and somewhere in those pages is this piece of advice „ make your bed every day. Decades ago, Ann Smith was giving out that advice for free. It was that attention to detail and responsibil-ity and follow-through,Ž said Jinks Middle School Principal Britt Smith, who was smack in the middle of the Smith brood at number five. And yes, he still makes his bed every day, though possibly not on his birthday. Growing up in the Smith house, with nine children and two parents, the only day you didnt have to wake up and make your bed was your birthday. His mother, Ann Smith, was a longtime support employee for Bay District Schools „ their Support Employee of the Year award is even named after her „ but while she was supporting students at school, she was also the main form of support at home, and Britt Smith credits her parenting for where he is today. She always provided good advice,Ž he said. Its one of the things I took advantage of, to stop and listen.Ž The Smith family home wasnt the biggest, but it was always bustling. Keeping nine children in line wasnt an easy feat, but the matriarch managed with little issue. You were busy, no doubt about that,Ž Ann Smith said. But also, this started in the 50s, and life was much easier in the 50s.Ž Britt Smith remembers each of his siblings having a job and responsibilities around the house, which really set high expectations and accountability. Education was also very important, and the edu-cator still remembers the day he dared bring home a DŽ grade, in 6th grade spelling. I remember, she told me that was the one class you should always make an A in because you know whats on the test,Ž he said. But she made a point every day when I came home that that homework was done and addressed. The lesson you end up walking away with is you have potential and its your responsibility to fulfill that potential.Ž That dedication to education clearly made an impression on the family, as the nine Smith children have about 14 degrees between them, and many have become educators locally, working at Mosley High School and Palm Bay Prep, as well as Jinks. Even though she had nine children, Ann Smith always made it a point to be involved in what her children were doing, whether that meant being a Cub Scout leader, cheerleading sponsor or just in the stands, she was there. It was important to me just to be sure they were involved,Ž Ann Smith said. It kept them moti-vated and moving in the right direction.Ž Even after everything hes accomplished in his own life, Britt Smith said it still means more to him when people recognize him as Ann Smiths son than by his own merits. I jokingly tell people, being a principal is just being a parent,Ž he said. When you look at the way that I run my school and I talk to kids, all Im doing is saying what she taught me. She cares,Ž he continued. She listens, she works to help them achieve their goals and she encourages them. That's what people need more of these days.Ž Ann Smith By John Henderson 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn | PANAMA CITY BEACH „ Jerrilyn Griffitts always saw her son Philip as a natural born leader. He was a born leader to me,Ž she said. He was in Little League. He played baseball and Little League football, and then in middle school, he was on the golf team and the swim team,Ž she said. And in high school, he was captain of the swim team, and then he was president of Key Club.Ž Leadership was even part of his name, as they gave him the name of his father, Philip Sr., who was the beachs mayor for nearly two decades. So it's seems natural to her thatPhilip, known by the nickname Griff,Ž today is a County Commissioner, former Tourist Development Council Chairman and member of the Bay County Planning Board. But as a child, she made sure he knew the value of work, having him work every job imaginable at the their family business the Sugar Sands Moteland La Quinta Inn & Suites. We lived in the motel for 10 years while he was growing up,Ž she said. We had a house there. He started at the bottom. He swept parking lots. He picked up cigarette butts. He knew I hated cigarette butts so hed try to find them. He just did it all. And when he was young, he would get involved in everything we did, and he loved being there. We met so many people that we still are friends with. Griff would play with their children.Ž Jerrilyn said her son always had a kind heart, asking that neighbor children whose parents were working could come over to their place and play until their par-ents came home. I think he has always been a giver,Ž she said. When her son graduated from Florida State University in 1994, he came back home and took over the job as manager of the Sugar Sands. Jerrilyn said Ed Hickey could not convince her son to become manager of his beach services business. Jerrilyn said even though her son loves to travel, he wants to work and live on Panama City Beach. It is such a beautiful city and weve got some of the best people in the world who live here, and I dont think Griff ever thought of leaving,Ž she said. When he graduated from Florida State he did not want to leave like a lot of children do. He just wanted to stay around family and be involved in the commu-nity, and he jumped in right after that and got very involved in every-thing in Bay County.Ž Hurricane Opal destroyed Sugar Sands in 1995, she said, adding that Griff threw himself into the process for getting the hotel rebuilt. When Opal hit I told him I was really glad that he was with us when that happened, because if you are going to have a business on the beach, you have to got be able to shake yourself up, and stand back up and deal with what has happened to you,Ž she said. "He was very, very instrumental in helping us get so we could build back.Ž Jerrilyn has another son, Matt, who five years ago opened Sugar Sands Insurance. He is doing quite well,Ž she said. God blessed me with two wonderful boys.Ž Jerrilyn Gri ttsBy Collin Breaux 747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB | LYNN HAVEN„ Motherhood meant everythingŽ to Geri Deal. I was a stay-at-home mom. I was always with my children,Ž said Deal. We were very close. My daughter and son and granddaughter, were very close. We did everything together and I was always there.Ž To this day,the80-year-oldlives right next to her daughter, Lynn Haven Mayor Margo Anderson, on Tennessee Avenue and regularly spends time with her son, local doctor Roy Deal, and grandaughter Hilary Keely, who is theGeneral Counsel for a Nemours Children's Health System careloca-tion in Jacksonville. All three of them are very brilliant people,Ž Deal said. My kids were always allowed to have all their friends at home. They grew up without getting in trouble.Ž The family moved around a lot, as Deal's latehusband Louie Deal worked for the Department of Defense for 35 years. They lived in Japan, and all over the United States during his career, but when he retired in 1980 Deal knew exactly where she wanted to go. Back home to Bay County. Deal emphasized how important education is when raising her kids, with Anderson obtaining a Masters degree in English. Public service runs in their blood since Deal ran for local office in the 1990s, though didnt win. Deal currently attends city commission meetings to support Anderson, who Deal said is a voice of the people. Im there for them,Ž Deal said. My kids have been my whole life.Ž Geri Deal Geri Deal, the mother of Lynn Haven Mayor Margo Anderson, at her home on Tuesday.

** A6 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News HeraldCountry looks to blow up nuke-site tunnels in less than two weeksBy Kim Tong-Hyung The Associated Press SEOUL, South Korea „ North Korea said Saturday that it will dismantle its nuclear test site in less than two weeks, in a dramatic event that would set up leader Kim Jong Uns summit with President Donald Trump next month. Trump welcomed the gracious gesture.Ž In a statement carried by state media, North Koreas Foreign Ministry said all of the tunnels at the countrys northeastern testing ground will be destroyed by explosion, and observation and research facilities and ground-based guard units will also be removed. Kim had already revealed plans to shut the test site by the end of May during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last month. Analysts say that while the closure of the site is impor-tant, it doesnt represent a material step toward full denuclearization. A ceremony for dismantling the nuclear test ground is now scheduled between May 23 and 25,Ž depending on weather, the Foreign Ministrys statement said, adding that journalists from the United States, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain will be invited to witness the dismantling. The ministry said the North will continue to promote close contacts and dialogue with the neighboring countries and the international society so as to safeguard peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and over the globe.Ž Trump, in a tweet Saturday, thanked North Korea for its plan to dismantle the nuclear test site, calling it a very smart and gracious gesture!Ž Following the MoonKim meeting, Moons office said Kim was willing to disclose the process to international experts, but the Norths statement Saturday didnt address allowing experts on the site. South Korea had no immediate response to the statement. The Norths announcement comes days after Washington announced that the historic summit between Kim and Trump will be held June 12 in Singapore. South Korea has said Kim has genuine interest in dealing away his nuclear weapons in return for economic benefits. However, there are lingering doubts about whether Kim would ever agree to fully relinquish the weapons he probably views as his only guarantee of survival. During their meeting at a border truce village, Moon and Kim vaguely promised to work toward the com-plete denuclearizationŽ of the Korean Peninsula, but made no references to verification or timetables. North Korea for decades has been pushing a concept of denuclearizationŽ that bears no resemblance to the American definition. The North has been vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its 28,500 troops from South Korea and the nuclear umbrella defend-ing South Korea and Japan. Trump welcomes North Korea planThe demolition of the 60-foot-tall cooling tower at its main reactor complex on June 27, 2008 in Yongbyon North Korea. North Koreas Foreign Ministry said Saturday it will hold a ceremonyŽ for the dismantling of its nuclear test site on May 23-25 in what would be a dramatic but symbolic event to set up the summit meeting between Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump scheduled for next month.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 A7habits and sleeping habits, too „ either too much or too little, can be a sign theres something deeper at work. Or if they suddenly cut themselves off from someone they used to trust and talk to, either their parents or a grandparent, family friend, coach, relative, warrants a check-in with them. Younger children are a bit more resilient when it comes to things bothering them, so a key sign to look for in them is energy level, if theyre not as playful or as interested in an activity as they used to be. Its a sign that theyre having trouble processing something thats made them uncomfortable, and should be looked into. But for todays middle schooler, Wicker said one of the first places a parent should check is social media. Every parent should know every social media account their child is on and truthfully, start there,Ž Wicker said. A lot of the information we get as counselors comes from a friend that a kid has sent social media stuff to.Ž Wicker said that not only should parents have the password for their middle schoolers social media accounts, they should have the whole account and be able to access it. She said a lot of times, when she talks to parents, they have no idea what social media sites their child is on, and thus have no idea whats going on with them. These days, with social media, kids play the game well but if you look at their social media youll see so much more,Ž she said. Tough conversationsOpening up a dialogue with a teenager, especially about something as sensitive as their mental health or their personal lives, can be difficult Wicker said, especially if parents dont exactly have an open line of communication with their child. The most important thing is to make sure they know theyre not in trouble, and that they have someone to talk to if they need it. Teenagers are often going to bite your head off anyways, even if theyre totally fine,Ž Wicker said. That person doesnt necessarily have to be a parent, she said, as long as its someone both the child and the parent trusts. It could be a guid-ance counselor that checks in with them to make sure theyre okay, a teacher, coach or, if the family goes to church, a youth pastor. If they wont talk to me, I just let them know that Im there,Ž she said. And Im someone they can trust.Ž One of the biggest roadblocks to open communication, Wicker said, is the teenagers fear that theyll get in trouble. Its a valid fear, she said, and for parents, the best thing they can do is not overreact and let them know that, no matter what, theyll still love their child. Sometimes, kids are going to tell you things that its important they tell you, but how you react exactly determines whether theyll continue to tell you,Ž Wicker said. As parents, its hard,Ž she continued. If kids are honest, theres no kid out there whos perfect. Every kid makes mistakes, period, end of sentence. How parents respond to that definitely affects what the kids next move it.Ž How to get help After having that tough conversation and determining that yes, their teenager needs help working through their problems, parents can sometimes feel helpless, Wicker said. They might not know where to start looking, and thats where the guidance staff at their school can help them. Schools can do referrals for counseling, she said, as they have contracts with local organizations like Florida Therapy Services and Life Management. Or, the parent can reach out directly to places like Childrens Home Society, Life Management, Anchorage Childrens Home with their family counseling services, or, if its really dire, Emerald Coast Behavioral Hospital. Theres also the staff at the school. And if something is happening at the school that is bothering their child, Wicker encouraged parents to reach out, either to the guidance staff or the administrators, to loop them in on whats going on. We definitely want parents to know theres lots of opportunity,Ž she said.

** A10 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Matt Sedensky The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO „ The unwanted were turned away from cafeteria tables. Fistfights broke out at karaoke. Dances became breeding grounds for gossip and cruelty. It became clear this place had a bullying problem on its hands. What many found surprising was that the perpetrators and victims alike were all senior citizens. Nursing homes, senior centers and housing complexes for the elderly have introduced programs, training and policies aimed at curbing spates of bullying, an issue once thought the exclusive domain of the young. Theres the clique system just like everywhere else,Ž said Betsy Gran, who until recently was assistant director at San Franciscos 30th Street Senior Center. Its like Mean Girls, but everyone is 80.Ž After the cafeteria exiles and karaoke brouhahas, the 30th Street Center teamed up with a local nonprofit, the Institute on Aging, to develop an anti-bullying program. All staff members received 18 hours of training that included lessons on what constitutes bullying, causes of the problem and how to manage such conflicts. Seniors were then invited to similar classes, held in English and Spanish, teaching them to alert staff or intervene themselves if they witness bullying. Signs and even place mats around the center now declare it a Bully Free Zone.Ž I think in the past I would have just stayed out of it,Ž said Mary Murphy, 86, a retired real estate agent who took the classes. Now I might be inclined to help.Ž Robin Bonifas, a social work professor at Arizona State University and author of the book Bullying Among Older Adults: How to Recognize and Address an Unseen Epidemic,Ž said existing studies suggest about 1 in 5 seniors encounters bullying. She sees it as an outgrowth of frustrations characteristic in communal settings, as well a reflection of issues unique to getting older. Many elderly see their independence and sense of control disappear and, for some, becoming a bully can feel like regaining some of that lost power. It makes them feel very out of control,Ž Bonifas said, and the way they sort of get on top of things and make their name in this new world is intimidating, picking on people, gossiping.Ž There is far less recognition of bullying as a problem among seniors compared with young people. Even among those who have been called bullies, many are unaware how problematic their behavior is until its labeled. Campaigns around the country have sought to spread the word, including a booklet circulated last year by the National Center for Assisted Living. In the life cycle, it doesnt go away,Ž said Katherine Arnold, a member of the city Human Rights Commission in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, which created a public service announcement on its community-access station that included a portrayal of a man who was excluded from a card game and became the subject of gossip by other seniors. Theres really not a lot of escape.Ž Most senior bullying isnt physical but rather involves name-calling, rumors and exclusion, said Pamela Countouris, a longtime schoolteacher who now runs a Pittsburghbased consultancy that offers training on bullying. Women constitute the bulk of the bullies Countouris encounters among seniors, a reflection of lifespan disparities and the gender makeup of those who live at or participate in programs at senior facilities. Countouris business began with a focus on school bullying but now centers exclusively on seniors. In the next month alone, she has more than a dozen training sessions planned.

[MARCIO JOSE SANCHEZ/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Alex Horton The Washington Post Two Russian longrange bombers were intercepted off the coast of Alaska by a pair of F-22 Raptor fighter jets on Friday, the military said. The Tu-95 bombers were flying in the Air Defense Identification Zone in the Bering Sea north of the Aleutian Islands, where they were visually identified and shadowed by the U.S. jets at 10 a.m., said Navy Capt. Scott Miller, a North American Aerospace Defense Command spokesman. The bombers did not enter North American sovereign airspace, he said in a statement. Miller declined to say how close the bombers came to U.S. land. Fox News reported they flew as close as 55 miles off Alaskas west coast. Fridays encounter was the first of its kind in just more than a year, Miller said. A similar incident occurred off Alaskan waters in April 2017 in what U.S. officials have described as routine if not tense encounters between adversarial aircraft where territorial lines meet. The identification zone extends about 200 miles off the Alaskan coast and is mostly international airspace, Miller said, though Russian military activity will often prompt an inkind response for U.S. warplanes. Intercepts in the zone occurred about 60 times from 2007 to 2017, The New York Times reported last year. Miller said the Russian bombers, decades-old aircraft classified by NATO as the Bear,Ž were flying in accordance with international norms. The aircraft are capable of carrying nuclear bombs, but it unclear what weapons they had on board, if any. A Russian Defense Ministry statement released Friday diverged from the U.S. military account. They said the bombers were escorted by fighter jets and a reconnaissance jet that also acts as an anti-submarine platform. Miller said that was not true. This was a safe intercept, which did not include a Russian recon plane, and no Russian fighters were present,Ž he told The Washington Post on Saturday. It was not clear if the Russian air operation was an opportunity for real-world training or if it was in response to U.S. and NATO military operations elsewhere. Last week, Russia scrambled jets four times in response to foreign reconnaissance flights near its border, the Russian news ser-vice Interfax reported. Aircraft intercepts, flybys and shadowings have escalated in recent years after Russian military activity and occupation in Crimea and parts of eastern Ukraine beginning in 2014. Earlier this month, a Russian Sukhoi Su-27 fighter jet flew within 20 feet of a U.S. P-8 surveillance aircraft over the Baltic Sea „ a minuscule distance considering the aircraft move at hundreds of miles an hour „ in an incident the U.S. military called safe but unprofessional. Fridays incident was relatively routine, but more aggressive maneuvers have worried defense officials and diplomats who said the encounters may eventually cause collisions or miscalculations that lead to a shoot-down. A report issued in 2014 by the European Leadership Network, a London-based think tank, documented almost 40 incidents that together add up to a highly disturbing picture of violations of national airspace, emergency scrambles, narrowly avoided midair collisions, close encounters at sea, simulated attack runs, and other dangerous actions happening on a regular basis over a very wide geographical area,Ž according to the report. The report was only compiled for 2014 and not for the subsequent years. US jets intercept pair of Russian bombers

** A12 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Jason Samenow The Washington Post What happened in the back yard of many Americans last month was not at all representative of the experience elsewhere in the world. While it was freezing cold and snow fell over much of the eastern United States, it was the third-warmest April on record for most of the rest of the planet. The map of temperature differences from normal in April tells the story. Shades of orange, signifying warmer-thannormal temperatures, cover almost the entire planet. Chilly shades of blue fill much of North America. Minneapolis, Chicago and Green Bay, Wis., all posted one of their top-five coldest Aprils on record. Many lakes in Minnesota did not see all of their ice melt until May's first week, the latest on record. Because of this tremen-dous cold in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, it was probably the coldest April for the Lower 48 since 1997. Across the pond, it was Europe's warmest April on record. Australia notched its second-warmest April on record. The Arctic and surrounding land areas were also substantially warmer than normal, according to the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts' Copernicus Climate Change Service that produced this global temperature analysis. Overall, the planet was close to 0.9 degrees (0.5 Celsius) warmer than the 1981-2010 average during the month. It was slightly cooler than April 2016 and 2017, the two warmest Aprils on record. While the April 2018 global temperature was a notch below the previous two years, the Copernicus service said that "it was in line with the upward trend of 0.18C [0.32 Fahrenheit] per decade seen in global temperature data from 1979 onwards." Two particularly notable extreme weather events occurred during the month: In mid-April, a rain gauge in Kauai, Hawaii, measured 49.69 inches of rain in 24 hours, which pending review is the heaviest 24-hour rainfall total on record in the United States. Nawabshah, Pakistan, reported a temperature of 122.4 degrees April 30, possibly the highest April temperature ever recorded on the planet. This heat also spread over northwest India, fueling a killer dust storm May 2 which left at least 125 dead. While the US shivered, the rest of the world simmered in planets third-hottest AprilThe European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts Copernicus Climate Change Service tracks surface air temperatures.

** A14 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News Heraldsaid in a statement, adding that the scores would set a baseline for expectations, help parents pick a provider and show the OEL which programs need help. Moya said the scores would be posted on the OEL webpage once the Board of Education approves the rules surrounding the scoring. Several early learning leaders said they knew the scores would be low this year, but they were not expecting a situation where 42 percent of the providers would face probation if it were not for the grace period. I was severely disappointed and unhappily shocked,Ž said Robin Thompson, director of early learning for Manatee School District. The Herald-Tribune requested a breakdown of the data by county and VPK provider, but a Department of Education spokeswoman said that information contained student data protected by federal privacy rules and was unwilling to provide anonymized data before the public release. Disappointing resultsChildren take the kindergarten readiness assessment during the first month of kindergarten. Their scores are linked to wherever they attended VPK, and to avoid probation, at least 60 percent of a VPK providersgraduating childrenmust score at least 500 on the 900point STAR Early Literacy Assessment, according to the proposed rules. This set of scores is based on children who attended VPK during the 2016-17 school year. The state didnt decide on STAR as the assessment tool until the summer of 2017, so the providers could not gear their instruction toward a specific test. Janet Kahn, executive director of the Early Learning Coalition of Sarasota, said she had anticipated roughly 30 percent of providers wouldnt make the cut, so to hear that it was more than 40 was disappointing. But, Kahn said providers should not be judged too harshly because the test is new, and they didnt know what test the state would use. Julissa Caballero,the director of Tiny Tots Uni-versity in Palmetto, said a new test shouldnt create a massive increase in the number of children failing. They always say dont teach to the test; teach to the standards,Ž Caballero said. Caballero hasnt seen the results yet for her students, but she is not optimistic. She said the test does not gauge how much a child learns during their year in VPK, and she is worried that the new test could make it appear as if she is not making significant progress with her students. Ill have a 4-year old in VPK who may speak Spanish only, so I have to bring them from speaking Spanish to speaking English, to learning how to cut with scissors and how to write with pencils,Ž Caballero said. Its not a fair test, because its not determining where a child began and where a child ended.Ž An OEL spokeswoman said the new assessment effectively measures childrens basic knowledge of letters, numbers, words and sounds. A typical question might ask a child to identify the person under a tree, and they will need to select from a handful of pictures which one matches the verbal description. The test takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete and is administered on a computer. Thompson said some of the computer skills required to take the test arent part of the states standards for VPK providers. If this test continues to be the choice of the state, I think we can do a little bit more to prepare our children,Ž Thompson said. We need to kind of replicate some of the things that are required that dont really assess their knowledge, it just assesses whether they can use a mouse or not.Ž The state has not released school readiness rates since 2014, when legislators voted to not release scores because of technological errors with implementing the previous assessment. OEL officials are expected to present their plan to the state Board of Education on Wednesday. Scrambling to be preparedAs researchers have increasingly pointed to the benefits of preschool, states have scrambled to put structures into place so children can be prepared to enter kindergarten. Floridas VPK program has the second-highest enrollment rate in the country, trailing only Washington D.C. when it comes to the percentage of 4-year-olds enrolled, according to the annual State of Preschool Report. However, Florida ranks in the bottom 10 nationally for funding the program. VPK providers receive just $4.51 per hour for three hours of daily care for children during the school year and $6.93 per hour during the summer, according to the OEL. In exchange for that funding, providers must prepare their students to take the assessment during the first month of kindergarten. Beth Duda, the executive director of the Suncoast Campaign for Grade Level Reading, said the readiness rates have long been a source of tension between the states VPK providers and the DOE. There has been a propensity for the early learning educators to say the K-12 system is expecting too much from our children,Ž Duda said. K-12 pushes back and says there is a place for play-based learning, but it has to be grounded in benchmark standards.Ž If the Board of Education approves the OELs proposed rules, the readiness rates for each provider will be publicly released. PRE-KFrom Page A1 By Regina Garcia Cano The Associated Press LAS VEGAS „ The black letters contrast sharply with the graduation caps red fabric. They spell: Vuela tan alto como puedas sin olvidar de donde vienes.Ž Fly as high as you can without forgetting where you come from.Ž Thats the message that Brenda Romero, who crossed the border from Mexico with her mother when she was 2, wants to spread as she graduates Saturday from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Her decorated mortarboard is part of an emerging trend in which students are pushing against the formality of graduation ceremonies and choosing to stand out in a sea of monochromatic caps and gowns by expressing joy, angst or, increasingly, political opinions. Photos shared on social media show mortarboards adorned with expressions of gratitude toward family members and hope for the future, with phrases like The best is yet to comeŽ and On to my new dream.Ž Plenty also highlight the cost of higher education. This hat was $95,990,Ž one cap reads. Another states: Game of Loans. Interest is coming.Ž And caps proclaiming that Nevertheless, she persistedŽ abound. The informal practice, which is not necessarily encouraged by institutions, has been around for years and is used by students to express their individuality. But over the past couple of years, it has taken a more political tone, said Sheila Bock, a folklorist and professor at UNLV. That desire of wanting to make aspects of ones self visible that are other-wise invisible has always been there,Ž said Bock, who is researching how and why students decorate their mortarboards. But within the last couple of years, those types of assertions „ particularly as they relate to citizenship, places of origin, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation „ have taken more significance as they move into this mode of public display.Ž Bock has been tracking what students put on their caps through social media posts, as well as by attending commencements, photographing mortarboards and interviewing dozens of students.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 A15By Elaine Ganley and Angela Charlton The Associated Press PARIS „ A knife-wielding assailant killed one person and injured four others in a lively neighborhood near Paris famed Opera Garnier before he was killed by police Saturday night. The Islamic State group claimed the attacker as one of its soldiers.Ž Counterterrorism authorities took charge of the investigation, and President Emmanuel Macron vowed that France would not bow to extremists despite being the target of multiple deadly attacks in recent years. Paris police officers evacuated people from some buildings in the Right Bank neighborhood after the attack, which happened on rue Monsigny at about 9 p.m. (1900 GMT.) Bar patrons and opera-goers described surprise and confusion in the immediate area. Beyond the police cordon, however, crowds still filled nearby cafes and the citys night life resumed its normal pace soon after the attack. Prosecutor Francois Molins said counterterrorism authorities are leading the investigation on potential charges of murder and attempted murder in connection with terrorist motives. At this stage, based on the one hand on the account of witnesses who said the attacker cried Allahu akbar (God is great in Arabic) while attacking passersby with a knife, and given the modus operandi, we have turned this over to the counterterrorist section of the Paris prosecutors office,Ž Molins told reporters from the scene. The Islamic State groups Aamaq news agency said in a statement early Sunday that the assailant carried out the attack in response to the groups calls for supporters to target members of the U.S.-led military coalition squeezing the extremists out of Iraq and Syria. The Aamaq statement did not provide evidence for its claim or details on the assailants identity. Frances military has been active in the coalition since 2014, and Islamic State adherents have killed more than 200 people in France in recent years, including the 130 who died in the coordinated November 2015 attacks in Paris. President Emmanuel Macron tweeted his praise for police who neutralized the terroristŽ and said France is once again paying the price of blood but will not cede an inch to enemies of freedom.Ž Paris police said the attacker in Saturdays stabbings was armed with a knife and targeted five people in the 2nd arrondissement, or district, killing one and seriously injuring two. The other two suffered less serious injuries. The attack occurred near many bars and theaters, as well as the opera. Frances BFM television interviewed an unnamed witness in a restaurant who said a young woman was at the entrance when a man arrived and attacked her with a knife.Ž A friend came to her aid and the attacker left, hitting on all the doors, all the shops,Ž the witness told BFM. He turned onto another street, and everyone scattered, the witness said. I was having a drink with friends and we heard a boom,Ž a witness named Gloria, who had been in a nearby bar, recounted on Saturday night. She said she went outside to see what happened and I saw a guy lying on the ground.ŽAnother witness described leaving the opera house and being told to go back inside because of the attack. Paris stabbings investigated as terror attack, claimed by ISA police of“ cer cordons off the area after a knife attack Saturday in central Paris. The Paris police said the attacker was subdued by of“ cers during the stabbing attack in the 2nd arrondissement or district of the French capital Saturday. [THIBAULT CAMUS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

The organization, Scholastic Books had been offering to outfit rooms as a reading oasisŽ „ with bookshelves, bean bag chairs, area rugs, CD players and, of course, about 450 books. Each room came with a $5,500 price tag, but Krebs thought if the Panama City Kiwanis could raise enough for two, they would at least be doing something to encourage reading in schools. I had heard all these stories about reading levels in Bay County and how many at-risk elementary schools there were,Ž Krebs said. But while they were raising the money to purchase their first set in 2016, something really fortuitous happened. Scholastic Books dropped the price of the reading oasisŽ to $2,700, and the Kiwanis found the reach of their money doubled. Eventually, they raised enough money to build four reading oasisŽ rooms and through a matching grant from the FL Kiwanis Foundation, received enough funds to outfit two more for a total of six. When looking for locations for the new reading rooms, Krebs turned to school grades, selecting the schools with the lowest grades and who needed the most help. We wanted to concentrate on Panama City itself just because of the need here,Ž Krebs said.

"With these electric carts it is instant torque. You step on the gas pedal and off you go. They are rated to go up to 45 miles per hour. Adult carts have paddle shifters. They have digital read outs on the steering real. They sound like Formula One race cars. They have their own sound generator and speaker, so its going to be crazy exciting and fun.Ž For safety reasons, people on the cars will be required to wear a harness as well as a helmet, Ramsden said. "We really strap you in the seat," he said. The track will be serpentine instead of an oval design. While the concept of electric go-karts may be new here, they can be found across the country. They have (electric carts) all over the country and they are very popular,Ž Ramsden said. There is so little to do in Panama City, especially indoors where you can escape the heat or escape the rain. Ive lived here for eight years. In the offseason, there is nothing to do for locals. This will not only serve the roughly 18 million visitors that the Emerald Coast gets every year, but it will also give the locals something to do in the offseason.Ž Ramsden said he is trying to cultivate a family friendly atmosphere. I want to be the Chick-Fil-A of go-kart tracks,Ž he said. I want everybody to be super nice and absolutely no profanity. I want it fun for families.Ž The go-kart track is opening in the same shopping plaza as NexGen, a virtual reality arcade that attracts lots of young people. Ramsden was attracted to the space because there is plenty of parking at the shopping plaza and itis only a few miles away from the new county Sports Park. He said the basic charge to use the track is $20 a race but there will be many other specials. You can do as many laps as you can get in 7 minutes, and then well do two races for $35, and three for $50," Ramsden said. "The grand opening weekend were going to do a buy-two-get-onefree race special to get people in door.Ž The track will be open year-round, Ramsden said. He said in the shoulder season the track will be offering specials for school children from Monday through Friday. "Well be offering to do corporate events and team building events, all kinds of bigger party type stuff," he said. Ramsden said they are planning to hire between 40 and 45 people. Im going to have two big screen TVs in there so people can play Mario Kart while they are waiting (to ride),Ž Ramsden said. Ramsden said his business is not part of a chain operation. If this one does as well as I hope it does, well probably go to the Pensacola market next," he said. Ramsden said he enjoys riding go-karts but doesnt enjoy the smell and ride of the gas-powered carts. The business will be offering three private party rooms that hold between 20 to 30 people. The other two will hold your standard 10 to 15 or so," he said. "Well be offering private rooms for birthday parties„ whatever kind of party that your mind can think of as long as its legal.Ž KARTSFrom Page B1 the Humane Society has received was in the wake of a recent tragedy. One of their employees, Todd ClintŽ Scheiderer, died in February after a car wreck while driving home from work. In the wake of the fatal crash, students from Bay Haven Charter Academy reached out to create an area on the Humane Societys property called Clints Corner,Ž where employees can take breaks from work. While he was alive, Scheiderer devoted endless hours, on and off the clock, to taking care of the animals, the shelter and staff. Leader said Scheiderer supported the shelter because it gives the community a place to surrender animals they can either no longer care for their pet„ for health or financial reasons„ or they are in a situation where they cannot keep their pet. Even when people in the military get orders to go overseas, they have a lengthy process to get their pet to go with them and they dont want to see it go to a kill shelter,Ž Leader said. They either have to go through that process, find someone to take their pet or bring them to us. And we have a lot of active military in our community.Ž Among the activities for Saturdays customer appreciation, visitors could participate in raffles, Chinese auctionsŽ or get free nail clipping for their pets. Leader said the Humane Society will also be hosting a free shot clinic on June 9. Pet owners can get the standard shots for their pets as well as a rabies vaccine, which generally isnt offered at other shot clinic events. HUMANE From Page B1 Scott, Patronis is raising money for his campaign account and the political committee Treasure Florida. In all, he brought in a total of $418,000 in April. Among the $216,046 the campaign and committee received from insurance agents and companies, Insurance Administrative Solutions of Clearwater, State Mutual Insurance of Rome, Ga., and Heri-tage Property & Casualty Insurance of Clearwater each gave $50,000, and FCCI Services of Sarasota put up $25,000. The Cabinet-level office, which has a variety of roles, is responsible for the licensing and oversight of insurance agents and agencies. Also last month, Patronis election effort received $25,000 from Lakeland-based Publix Super Markets, and $3,000 checks from Walt Disney Travel, Disney Vacation Development, Magic Kingdom, Inc., The Celebration Company and Disney Destinations. Patronis, a Panama City restaurateur and former state lawmaker, spent $78,429 in April through his campaign and the committee, with $57,128 going to consulting and advertising. Patronis started May with $2.8 million in the bank through the campaign account and committee. He also likely will not have to blow through money on a primary contest, as Sen. Tom Lee, a Thonotosassa Republican and former Senate president, announced in mid-April that he wouldnt run for the statewide seat. Meanwhile, Ring is raising money through a campaign account and the political committee Florida Action Fund. Ring added just over $100,000 last month, with $50,000 of that coming in a loan from the candidate. The Broward County Democrat has now put $150,000 of his own money into the contest. Rings campaign account pulled in $26,566 last month, while the political committee received $26,250. Contributions included $10,000 from Disney Worldwide Services and $2,500 from James Finch of Lynn Haven. Finch, the owner of Phoenix Construction, attracted attention this week from the gubernatorial campaign of Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who called out former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, also a Democrat running for governor, for receiving $100,000 from Finch, a developer of the Keystone XL pipeline. Ring, a former Yahoo executive who opened May with $466,566 in the two accounts, spent just over $31,000 last month. PATRONISFrom Page B1 Elementary and Lucille Moore Elementary. All the principals were enthusiastic about getting these,Ž Krebs said. Rolling up their sleeves, the Kiwanis Club members set to work, painting rooms in each school, building bookshelves and moving in books. They worked on the rooms through 2017 and on Tuesday, during the Bay District School Board meeting, they cut the ribbon to officially open all six rooms. All told, they raised $17,000, including over 2,700 books. But thats just phase one of Krebs plan. Now, hes focusing on getting together a group of between 10 and 30 members to go into the schools as volunteer mentors, possibly using the new reading oasis as a meeting space and a space where they can read to their mentees. Were trying to make it as easy as we can for kids to get books,Ž he said. Its surprising, how little some of them have.Ž OASISFrom Page B1 Even when people in the military get orders to go overseas, they have a lengthy process to get their pet to go with them and they dont want to see it go to a kill shelter.ŽBrenda Leader

** B4 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News HeraldMary Rosalie Cliatt, born on November 12, 1939, went home to be with her Heavenly Father on May 10, 2018. She will most be remembered for her sweet smile and her blessed gift of gab,Ž which gave her the ability to make friends any place and at any time. Rose is a cherished daughter, grandmother, great-grandmother, and dear friend to many; but being a mom to her sons is what brought her the most joy. The love and devotion that she poured into them continues to be felt generations later. Rose is preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Cliatt, and her parents, James Gifford and Mary Mooney, and grandson-in-law Drew MacLean. She is survived by her sons, William (Theresa) Husfelt, and Jim (Camilla) Husfelt, Chaplain Col. Michael (Michele) Husfelt, USAF and Steve Jones. She is also survived by her siblings Jim (Melissa) Gifford, Bill (Beverly) Mooney, Frank (Denise) Mooney, Jeff Mooney, Shirley Gifford, Valerie (Ronald) Spink, brother-in-law Tommy (Paulette) Husfelt and sister-in-law Ruby (Bob) Alcorn.

Carol graduated from Coral Gables High School in Coral Gables, Florida in 1954, attended Florida State University and ultimately received her Bachelors degree from the University of Central Florida in 1990. Carol grew up with a strong faith and a great sense of adventure. She traveled the world with her husband, Wes, exploring countries and cultures across the globe including Russia and China. Never afraid to try new things or meet new people, Carol was able to form instant connections with everyone she met. She had a strong interest in genealogy and was able to trace her family back to revolutionary times (and even beyond that to Mountain Ash in Wales). Carol was a member of the Mathatasian book club in Brevard, NC with whom she shared her love of literature and good times. As a resident of the College Walk retirement community, Carol embraced all that College Walk had to offer, from being a part of the Senior Games gold medal winning line dancing team to being the Mardi Gras queen.

Carol adored her husband, her girls and her grandchildren and always made an effort to be part of their lives.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 B5Lawyers say rule could cost hundreds of jobsBy Dara Kam The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE „ A new rule floated by Florida gambling regulators holds a price tag of $50 million a year and could cost hundreds of jobs, according to a lawyer representing several of the states cardroom operators. The regulation in question, proposed late last month by the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering, would make a number of changes and effectively do away with controversial designated playerŽ card games that have been lucrative for pari-mutuel facilities across the state. The games have played a central role in a legal dispute between the Seminole Tribe and the state, and the proposed rule followed a revamped agreement inked last month by Gov. Rick Scott and the tribe. That agreement is an outgrowth of a 2010 deal in which the tribe promised to pay the state at least $1 billion over five years in exchange for exclusive rights to offer bankedŽ card games, such as blackjack, at most of its Florida casinos. During the legal dispute, Seminole lawyers argued that the way designatedplayer games were played violated the tribes exclusive rights to offer banked games. A federal judge sided with the tribe in the dispute, which led to concerns that tribe payments to the state could end „ though the tribe did not stop making payments. The proposed regulation issued by the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering would require designated players to compete and compare their cards against each other to determine the winner(s) of each game.Ž It would effectively negate the designated-player games. The new language would ensure that players compete and compare their cards against each other to determine the winner(s) of each game,Ž which would end a current practice that allows gamblers to play against a designated player who acts as the house.Ž John Lockwood, a lawyer who represents numerous pari-mutuels, called the proposal a drastic changeŽ that would have a dramatic impact on gambling operators and workers at the facilities. Lockwood said the change could cost the industry $50 million a year and hundreds of jobs. The divisions draft rule would be completely detrimental to the entire cardroom industry in Florida,Ž Lockwood, told The News Service of Florida in an interview Monday. The revamped agreement announced between Scott and the tribe last month would guarantee until May 2019 the continued flow of Seminole casino cash to the state budget „ at least $300 million. Before the agreement was announced, legislative leaders had held behind-the-scenes talks about possibly calling a special session, ostensibly because of concerns that the Seminole money could dry up. Pointing in part to the agreement, legislative leaders said they would not hold a special session. But the agreement was also a way to head off attempts by lawmakers to expand gambling through steps such as allowing slot machines outside of Broward and Miami-Dade counties, something the Seminoles were trying to clip. Lawmakers had been eager to sidestep a proposed constitutional amendment that will appear on the November ballot and, if approved, will give voters the say-so over thorny gambling issues, now largely controlled by the Legislature. Key Republi-cans also wanted to ensure a continuation of at least $300 million the Seminoles now plunk into state coffers.Under the agreement, the tribe will continue making the payments through the 2019 legislative session. In exchange, the tribe will continue to have exclusive rights to offer games such as blackjack at its casinos and will continue to be the states only slot-machine operator outside of Miami-Dade and Broward. But the flow of the money relies, at least in part, on the decision by U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle, who sided with the tribe in the dispute with the state. The payments, under the agreement, rely on aggressive enforcement action against continued operation of banked card gamesŽ at pari-mutuel facilities, which have seen revenue from other activities „ such as dog racing „ decline in recent years. Gambling rules take aim at controversial card games

BLACKFORD By Jim Turner The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE „ Floridas hurricanebattered citrus growers, facing their lowest yield in eight decades, continue to see a drop in production with the seasons harvest nearly complete. But with federal disaster relief from Hurricane Irma on the horizon, the industry tried to keep a positive spin on the situation after the release Thursday of a new forecast by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. With everything Florida citrus growers have gone through this year, we consider todays forecast to be relatively stable and not unexpected,Ž Shannon Shepp, executive director of the Florida Department of Citrus, said in a prepared statement. This is an industry choosing to remain optimistic about the future. And part of that optimism comes from the support weve received from policy makers, industry and consumers.Ž The May forecast from the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed a 1 percent decrease from an April outlook in orange and grapefruit output. That means growers are on pace to fill 44.95 million 90-pound boxes of oranges, which is off 34.7 percent from the prior growing season and would be the lowest production of oranges in Florida since the 19421943 season. Mark Hudson, U.S. Department of Agriculture state statistician, said about 89 percent of the Valencia oranges remain on trees. Non-Valencia oranges have already been picked.Meanwhile, the amount of harvested grapefruit, which Hudson said is essentially completed for the season, stands at 3.95 million boxes, nearly half the prior seasons yield of 7.76 million boxes. Grapefruit farming is off 63.5 percent from two seasons ago and stands at a level that hasnt been seen in nearly a century. Growers in 1918-1919 filled 3.5 million boxes with grapefruit, a year later the number hit 5.9 million boxes. By the mid-1990s, the states citrus growers were filling more than 200 million boxes a year of oranges and 50 million boxes a year of grapefruit. Specialty fruits, including tangelos and tangerines, stand at 750,000 boxes for the current season. Citrus industry looks for silver lining in dismal season LOCAL & STATE

Jarmusz Gatehouse Media Florida DAYTONA BEACH „ Bethune-Cookman University released a new album May 3 „ its first in 20 years. The universitys HBCU Records, the only student-run record label at Americas more than 100 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, helped produce the album Hold Fast to Dreams.Ž Students from B-CUs Concert Chorale performed all 11 songs on the CD, which features chorale music, a cappella performances and some piano-accompanied songs. The project began as a way to give students firsthand experiences in recording an album, said Pamela Browne, executive director of B-CUs Mike Curb Music Business, Entertainment & Sports Institute. B-CU kicked off the albums release with a reception in its Wilson Rotunda. The last time B-CU released an album, some of its students werent even born, so the opportunity was a oncein-a-lifetime experience. When they first told us that we were going to be doing an album, it was exciting. As a music and recording technology major ƒ this was my dream come true,Ž senior Marcus Anderson said. Before, during and afterwards, it was just an overwhelming feeling of I cant wait until Im able to hear this album.Ž Besides lending their voices, students at HBCU Records helped produce the album. The studentrun record label, founded in 2016, lets students learn about different aspects in the music industry, including finding and developing artists, songwriting, recording, producing, booking, marketing and promotions, Browne said. As a first tenor section leader, Anderson was a feature soloist on the album. He also pulled double duty as an assistant engineer. I was really all over the place, running back and forth, helping out with the technical side, the singing side, the recording side and everything,Ž Anderson said. Junior Jerry Williams helped with recording setup on the album. The work involved many long days, but Williams said he thought the final product was phenomenal.Ž Before an album is ready for release, it has to be mixed and mastered. Mixing requires listening and sorting through the sometimes hundreds of takes of each song and then narrowing it down to the best versions. Once those versions are chosen, the album has to be mastered, which is where sound levels are fine-tuned to give the music a signature sound, Browne said. B-CU staff and veteran music producer Darryl Tookes put on the albums finishing touches. Tookes has been in the music business for 40 years and has cut albums for everyone from Aretha Franklin to Michael Jackson. But from the looks of it, the students impressed Tookes as much as the celebrities hes worked with. Before addressing a small crowd at the reception, Tookes paused, regarded students with a warm, extended gaze, and gestured for a round of applause. Its almost impossible to take your music from your soul and to develop it and to share it and to find ways to even market it,Ž Tookes said. My job will not be over with the project until the world hears it.Ž Students at Florida university release rst album in 20 years Concert Chorale Director Terrance Lane talks to people gathered at a reception for the Bethune-Cookman University Concert Chorales new CD, Hold Fast to Dreams,Ž May 3 in the Rotunda of their College of Liberal Arts in Daytona Beach, Fla. [JIM TILLER/GATEHOUSE MEDIA FLORIDA] By Jim Turner The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE „ With more than $300,000 in contributions in April, attorney-general candidate Ashley Moody wants everyone to know shes outpacing her Republican opponents in raising money for their August primary battle. Judge Ashley Moody continues to outraise and outperform her Republican primary opponents with each and every campaign finance reporting period,Ž Moody campaign manager Nick Catroppo said in a prepared statement Friday. The former Hillsborough County judge brought in about $325,000 in April for her campaign account and the political committee Friends of Ashley Moody, positioning her to begin May with $1.7 million on hand, according to newly posted numbers on the state Division of Elections website. That total remains behind the $2.09 million available to GOP primary opponent Frank White, a state House member from Pensacola who has put more than $1.5 million of his own money into the campaign. White received $161,747 in contributions in April for his campaign account and the political committee known as United Conservatives. That included $71,700 from auto dealers, $46,250 from developers and $14,100 from contributors tied to the energy industry. The auto money included $50,000 from Sansing Holdings, where White serves as general counsel and chief financial officer for the chain of Sandy Sansing auto dealerships. Whites also received $31,000 from D.A.B. Constructors of Inglis and $10,000 from Gulf Power, the largest electricity provider in Northwest Florida. Meanwhile, fellow Republican candidate Jay Fant, a state House member from Jackson-ville, posted $18,065 for the month through his campaign account and the political committee called Pledge This Day. Fant, whose contributions included a $9,000 check from Jacksonville investor Robert Cook and $4,500 from lawyers and law firms, ended April with $838,929 on hand. During the early stages of the campaign, Fant has aggressively targeted Moody, trying to portray her as a liberal and as having the backing of trial lawyers. But while Fant has put $750,000 of his own money into the race, Moody has drawn more contributions. Moodys April contributions included $107,077 from development, construction and real estate fields, $43,150 from the financialservices industry and $33,050 from lawyers. Another $50,000 came from political organizations, including $25,000 from the Treasure Coast Alliance, a political committee led by outgoing Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart. Moody also received $1,000 from Friends of Dana Young, the political committee of Sen. Dana Young, R-Tampa, and $10,000 from the Florida Prosperity Fund, which is tied to the business advocacy group Associated Industries of Florida. Moody, who has the backing of outgoing Attorney General Pam Bondi, also has continued to take advantage of in-kind support from the Republican Party of Florida. In April, Moody drew $104,729 in in-kind consulting, staffing and research from the state party, which has now provided her with $233,915 in in-kind assistance. On the Democratic side of the race for attorney general, state Rep. Sean Shaw of Tampa posted $131,551 in contributions in April to his campaign and the political committee Sean Shaw for Florida, of which $62,150 was from the legal field. Shaws political committee received $10,000 from TECO Energy, Inc., $10,000 from the Tampa-based law firm Swope, Rodante and $10,000 from the West Palm Beach-based firm Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath. Shaw started May with about $316,000 on hand in the two accounts. Ryan Torrens, an attorney from Hillsborough County who has been running on the Democratic side since May 2017, picked up $5,328 in April. Torrens, who had raised a total of $100,419, had burned through all but $4,343. Moody tops money chase in AG raceStaff report U.S. Rep.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 B9By Melissa Nelson Gabriel The Pensacola News Journal PENSACOLA „ A National Park Service team of historic preservation experts has turned its attention to Battery San Antonio at Pensacola Naval Air Station. The Maryland-based team transitioned to the project earlier this week after doing major repairs at Fort Pickens on Gulf Islands National Seashore. The more than 230-year-old, Spanish-built Battery San Antonio presents unique challenges for the preservationists because of its age. This is the oldest part of the fort system in this area. It is actually listed as a historic landmark, the highest rating there is,Ž said Eric Hutchinson, a masonry expert who will be working on the batterys walls for the next several weeks. The team is repairing cracks in the stucco walls, which form the forts perimeter. Preservationist Elizabeth Price carefully applied layers of stucco to a crack in a wall last month. She used a trowel to gently place the specially blended stucco in a long section of wall underneath a drain. Hutchinson said the areas underneath the drains frequently crack because of the water that runs down the wall. The team is adding metal extensions to the drains to help move the water away from the forts walls. The original drains would have been terracotta. Those drains cracked and broke over time and PVC pipe was placed inside the drains decades ago to help move water away from the fort. Metal drain extensions should solve the problem, Hutchinson said. Sometimes you have to resolve an issue using modern materials because it is the best solution and helps prevent further deterioration,Ž he said. The team plans to repair about 20 large cracks in the forts walls. Preservationist Curtis Ward worked inside the fort last month. Ward pressure washed mold and moss from the walls and applied a biological agent to help keep plants from growing into the walls. Ward, who did similar work at Fort Pickens, said Battery San Antonio actually appears to be in better shape, even though it was built about a half century earlier. The battery at Pensacola Naval Air Station appears to have been better maintained through the years, he said. This fort is interesting because it has that Spanish mission feel. Also, its older and was built by the Spanish. That history makes it interesting to me,Ž Ward said as he prepared to power wash a section of the interior wall. Hutchinson said he was surprised by some of the decorative flourishes that the Spanish added to the fort. There is ornate scroll work over some of the doors and parts of the upper stucco walls were scored to make them appear as if they were made of brick. Especially impressive „ the brick tunnels that connect sections of the old Spanish battery with Fort Barrancas. The vaulted tunnels are an amazing example of precision masonry,Ž he said. Hutchinson, Ward and the other preservationists are based at the National Park Services Historic Preservation Training Center in Frederick, Maryland. The team traverses the country to repair historically significant park service sites. According to information provided by the park service, Battery San Antonio dates to the British colonial era. Bernardo de Galvez stormed the British Royal Navy redoubt in 1781 and the Spanish began building Battery San Antonio at the site. Completed in 1797, it is the third oldest standing fortification in Florida and among the oldest in the United States. Experts repair parts of historic battery in Pensacola


** B10 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News Herald ON THE WATERBy Melissa Nelson Gabriel Pensacola News Journal PENSACOLA „ A Pensacola nonprofit hopes to make it easier for area divers to sell lionfish to out-of-state buyers. Members of the environmental group Coast Watch Alliance told Escambia Countys Marine Advisory Council last month that they are working with the Congressional Sportsmens Caucus to change some regulations governing the sale of invasive lionfish. This would make it easier for us to move lionfish up market. The demand is very high in places like Delaware,Ž said Brian Asher, director of the Pensacola-based alliance. Asher said he has spoken with politicians in Delaware about creating a reciprocal agreement between the two states that would allow divers who harvest lionfish in Florida to sell directly to restaurants and fish markets in Delaware. Because the colorful fish with a lion-like manes of feathery fins are a nonnative and invasive species, regulators should ease restrictions on spear fishermen working to remove them from the northern Gulf, Asher argues. The price per pound (of lionfish meat) is significantly higher on the East Coast,Ž said Asher, who said he can sell his catch for about $5.25 per pound in Pensacola and for up to $10 in other states. Even with the added cost of transportation, divers would still come out ahead by selling directly to out-of-state buyers, he said. Kali Spurgin, lionfish outreach coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said Florida divers who harvest lionfish are currently required to obtain a saltwater products license from the state. To sell their catch out-of-state, they must go through a dealer who has a Florida Seafood Wholesalers license. If someone in California wants to buy fish from Florida, the must first purchase a Florida (Seafood) Wholesalers license,Ž she said. By cutting out the wholesaler, divers would get a larger share of the profits and have more of an incentive to harvest as many of the invasive fish as possible, Asher said. But Spurgin said demand for the fish is less of an issue than the expensive and labor-intensive method of harvesting them. We get emails from different restaurants in California and New York and other random places asking where they can get lionfish. The reality is that we dont have enough divers bringing them out of the water. We have a lot of restaurants in Florida that cannot keep up with the demand,Ž she said. Many lionfish live in waters that are too deep for spear fishermen to access, said Spurgin, who added that a solution could eventually come from promising research involving traps or robots. Lionfish, which have 18 venomous spines along their backs and sides, are native to the waters of the Indo-Pacific region and began to flourish off Florida in the 1980s when aquarium collectors released some of the fish in the area. Each female lionfish spawns millions of eggs a year and the species has no known natural predators in the northern Gulf. Lionfish eat native fish including grouper and snapper. Coast Watch Alliance, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Gulf Coast Lionfish, Florida Sea Grant and numerous other organizations are working together to promote awareness about the lionfish issue through a Lionfish Removal and Awareness event at the Flora-Bama Yacht Club on Perdido Key on May 19-20. The festival and lionfish tournament will include demonstrations about how to avoid the venomous spines to fillet the fish and how to best prepare lionfish. Divers hope to remove thousands of pounds of lionfish during the event. Group seeks eased limits on selling lion sh out of stateBy Jenny Staletovich The Miami Herald LOOE KEY „ A mysterious disease hammering Floridas dwindling reefs was found for the first time this week in the Lower Keys, alarming scientists whove used epoxy adhesive bandages, amputated sick coral and even set up underwater fire breaksŽ in a four-year battle to contain the outbreak. Florida Keys Community College researchers working with state and federal investigators discovered the infected coral during a routine dive to collect samples, said Mote Marine Laboratory biologist Erinn Muller. The discovery off Looe Key, south of Big Pine in part of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, puts in jeopardy the southern end of the worlds third-largest barrier reef „ a scuba-diving destination renowned for its biological diversity. Its also more bad news for a reef that has lost half its coral over the last two centuries, already is suffering impacts from climate change and has emerged from a three-year bleaching event. It is just heartbreaking for us because its such an iconic reef,Ž Muller said. I cant sleep at night because I think about it and what else can we do.Ž The disease, which now stands as the longest and largest infection for coral anywhere, jumped a gap in the 360-mile long reef tract at the Seven Mile Bridge, a point scientists had hoped would provide a natural obstacle. It first appeared off Virginia Key in 2014 and began spreading north, south and west. But until November 2017, it appeared to stop at the east end of the famous Keys bridge, Muller said. Scientists believe the disease is likely caused by a bacterial infection carried by currents, but little else is known. The Florida Current, which flows around the Florida Straits north into the Gulf Stream, likely carried it to Martin County, with smaller eddies spreading it south and west, Muller said. When coral began falling sick near Virginia Key, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was in the midst of dredging Government Cut. Miami-Dade County also has a massive sewage outfall pipe nearby. Its not clear whether either triggered the disease, or contributed to the spread on already stressed coral that also endured back-to-back warm summers beginning in 2014. We have this one unique event and nobody was there figuring all these things out as it was happening,Ž she said. Well do our best to go back and recover information, but as of right now Im not convinced well ever know.Ž A large team of researchers led by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection with help from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, universities and nonprofits including Mote have set up a joint investigation. They have so far been unable to identify the bacteria causing the disease because theyve been unable to grow cultures. Coral, like people, collect countless bacteria „ some good and some bad. To identify the bad, researchers need to grow the suspected pathogens and apply it to healthy coral in a lab. Scientists also suspect currents are spreading the disease, but Muller said it has sometimes moved in unexpected ways. It definitely has hot places,Ž she said. You have certain reefs getting infected but then it seems to hop over a reef and show up in a different area than where we expect.Ž Theyre also working to identify vulnerable coral and find ways to treat or at least contain the damage. Brain and large boulder coral, the tracts biggest reef builders, appear to be more susceptible, but scientists arent sure why, Muller said. Theyve tried a number of ways in lab experiments to treat it „ cutting out sick coral, applying chlorinelaced epoxy as an adhesive bandage to create an antisep-tic barrier and carving out fire breaks around reefs. Theyre also experimenting with a paste laced with antibiotics, trying to find a balance that will treat the coral but not contaminate reefs that already struggle with antibiotics from sewage outfall. But coral continue to die at an alarming rate. Some species are becoming extinct within certain regions,Ž Muller said. Were having basically local extinctions.Ž Mystery disease spreads, threatens reefs in Florida KeysBy Joel Achenbach The Washington Post Professor Matthew Fisher went deep into the gloomy rain forest of French Guiana to catch poison dart frogs on behalf of science. It was slippery, soggy, vaguely reptilian work. Fisher, whose work uniform was a pair of shorts, discovered that the best way to capture a frog was by slithering. Youve got to pretend youre a snake,Ž explains the epidemiologist from Imperial College London. He would silently creep to within an arms length of his target and then lunge forward purposefully: Youve just got to clap both of your hands around it and hold on tight.Ž The frogs were critical elements of a 10-year global investigation by 38 research institutions of a pathogenic fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), that is decimating amphibian populations around the world. The fungus, called a chytrid, causes an often-fatal skin disease, chytridiomycosis. Fisher and his colleagues cultured samples of the fungus, ran genetic tests and sought to understand when and where the pathogen emerged and how it spread around the planet. Their results, published Thursday in the journal Science, indicate that the Bd fungus pandemic did not begin 23,000 years ago, as one earlier hypothesis suggested, but rather sometime in the 1900s. Global trade and the marketing of exotic pets likely propelled it. The genetic signals point to a common ancestor in East Asia, possibly on the Korean Peninsula. Fisher said the surge in activity in East Asia during World War II and the Korean War, and the increased movement of people and cargo, could have played a role in distributing fungusinfected frogs and toads to other parts of the world. When you globalize trade, you globalize unexpected secondary consequences of trade,Ž Fisher says. Karen Lips, a University of Maryland biologist who has documented declines in amphibian populations in Central America, said the report shows that the chytrid fungi are more widespread and diversified than previously known. Such fungi are an invasive species and have a devastating impact on biodiversity, yet they dont get the kind of attention given to more charismatic alien species such as Burmese pythons, brown tree snakes, Northern snakeheads, feral hogs and rabbits. Exotic pet trade linked to invasive fungus thats killing frogs globallyLion“ sh are invasive species, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has aggressively looked for ways to incentivize their catch and removal.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 B11By Ben Guarino The News Herald Marine scientists are bracing for the loss of the world-class research vessel Marcus G. Langseth. The National Science Foundation plans to sell the 235-foot ship in 2020, according to a Dear Col-leagueŽ letter published on the agencys website last month. Without a vessel to replace the Langseth, ocean seismologists fear their field will suffer. Were not trying to save the Langseth at all costs,Ž said James Austin, a geoscientist at the University of Texas, Austin. Were trying to save deep-ocean crustal imaging.Ž Deep-ocean crustal imaging is where the Langseth excels. It is no ordinary ship. Its sophisticated array of pneumatic guns generates a blast that bounces off the Earths crust and penetrates dozens of miles into the planet. Unspooled behind the ship, miles of cables strung with microphones capture the blasts reflection. This sonic bounce creates maps of midocean-ridge magma chambers and tectonic plate edges, features that are otherwise difficult, if not impossible, to survey. There really arent any comparable vessels that are available to academic scientists,Ž said geophysicist Douglas Wiens, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis and chair of the Iris Consortium, a network of 100-plus universities that collect seismological data. This ship has propelled huge scientific advancesŽ in marine seismology, he said. Marine imaging, for instance, helps scientists identify where underwater earthquakes could occur. Recent research conducted on the Langseth found a fault near the Alaskan coast similar to the fault responsible for the 2011 tsunami that devastated Japan and other areas across the Pacific. In 2004, the NSF purchased and transformedthe ship from a contractor for the drilling industry, which uses ships like the Langseth to locate oil and other natural resources. The academic community had grand ambitions for the ship, said Sean Higgins, director of marine operations at Columbia Universitys Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, which runs the Langseth on behalf of the NSF. The ship, which accommodates 55 or so people, can make observations as varied as the salt content in seawater and the detection of nearby marine mammals. Researchers do not fire the ships air guns when whales or dolphins are close, Austin said, to avoid harming the animals. The ship generates 3-D views into the Earths crust, peering deeper than the Langseths retired predecessor, the Maurice Ewing. The Langseth has buoyed the careers of scientists who never set foot aboard it. The marine science community shares sea-floor data collected by the Langseth, similar to the way astronomers over the world can access images from NASAs Hubble Space Telescope. But financial problems plagued the Langseth from the start. Its planned $4.4 million refit in Canada ran over budget by $600,000. An agreement between the NSF and the international Integrated Ocean Drilling Program to support the ship fell through during the 2008 recession, Higgins said, leaving the NSF holding the check. Rising fuel prices drove up the cost of research excursions. The ship remains docked more often than not. The Langseth sails only about 150 days a year. And an operational day at sea costs $70,000, give or take, Austin said. Despite the high price tag, the Langseth has traveled from the Arctic to the Pacific to the Atlantic over the past decade. It recently weathered 30-foot swells south of New Zealand. But a 200-page document may have sealed its fate. In 2015, the National Research Council published an influential report called Sea Change: 20152025,Ž a map of the next decade of marine science. This report was a game changer,Ž Higgins said. The council recommended the immediate lay-up of the R/V LangsethŽ to shift resources elsewhere. The NSF concluded that it could pay about $10 million of the Langseths $13 million annual operational costs. In the three years since the report, the NSF has held workshops and invited scientists to propose solutions for the $3 million divide. From these workshops, Scientists warn against losing a crucial research ship See SHIP, B13

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 B13By Ben Guarino The Washington Post The bigger a female fish grows, the more eggs she lays disproportionately so. Thats the conclusion driven home in a report published Thursday in the journal Science. Biologists at Monash University in Australia and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama gathered egg data from 342 fish species across the worlds oceans. At the extreme end, the vermilion snapper, Rhomboplites aurorubens, had a 400-fold difference in eggs between the littlest and biggest mama fish. A small female snapper lays around 4,000 eggs. A whopper of a vermilion snapper can deposit eggs by the million, study authors Diego Barneche and Dustin Marshall, colleagues at Monash University, told The Washington Post. This research wont come as a surprise to any field biologists who work with fish. Mark Wuenschel, who works at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Northeast Fisheries Science Center and was not a part of this study, said the size effect was so well known it has an acronym among research-ers: BOFFFF, for Big Old Fat Fecund Female Fish. But this work is valuable because a BOFFFFs importance is often tough to assess, Wuenschel said because these fish are fished out of the population. In 2017, another team of scientists showed that the fishing industry catches the oldest fish at rates higher than the rest of the population. You dont even need to be overfishing to get those big old fish to go down,Ž said Trevor Branch, a University of Washington professor and an author of the 2017 report, who was not involved with the new study. The authors of the new research say it contains an important message for the fishing industry. Most classic fisheries models dont account for the massively disproportionate contribution that larger fish make, yet these are the first individuals to disappear under even a moderate fishing pressure,Ž Barneche and Marshall wrote in a joint email. So, fisheries scientists, despite the best of intentions, have been using models that inadvertently recommend overharvesting.Ž Barneche, Marshall and their colleagues used the example of cod, a commercially important fish. Picture a large Atlantic codfish: Her scales glisten and her chin whiskers are long. Her 30-kilogram body (66 pounds) is swollen with eggs. Nearby is a school of her little sisters and cousins. They are pregnant, too. But they are smaller, just 2 kilograms each. When the big fish spawns, her eggs will outnumber the eggs deposited by 28 small fish, the authors of the new study calculated. Put another way, it takes more than 123 pounds of small cod to lay the same number of eggs spawned by one 66-pound fish. Its simple physics,Ž said the University of British Columbias Tony Pitcher, a fisheries scientist not involved with this study. The longer a fish is, the greater the volume of her ovaries (proportional to her length). Bigger ovaries mean more eggs. Thats been very well known for more than a century, Pitcher said. Less well known, he said, was the corresponding increase in egg quality. Older females do not simply lay more eggs. Their eggs are richer in fat and bigger in size. Based on the total energy contentŽ of fish eggs the number, volume and nutrients a 66-pound mother of cod is equal to even more fish. Not 28, but 37 little cod, per the new study. All else being equal, more and better eggs means more fish,Ž Marshall said. If an animals limb or organ grows out of proportion with the rest of its body, scientists call that allometry. These fish eggs are an extreme example, or hyperallometry.Ž Fish biologists have been advocating for this idea for a long time,Ž Barneche and Marshal said in their email, but our contribution was to show that hyperallometry is the rule, not the exception.Ž Wuenschel, who noted he is more involved with fish biology than managing fisheries, said maternal effects as described in the paper have generally been ignored in the past.Ž But, as data accumulates, fisheries managers take note. Many recreational species are managed with slot limits,Ž he said, meaning fish that are either too small or too large must be released. Some fisheries have started to use egg output as a metric instead of weight, Branch said, particularly on the U.S. West Coast. Because fish in marine-protected areas tend to let fish grow larger, the study authors said that regions of the sea inaccessible to fishing boats could be even more important than predicted. To Pitcher, the message to fishers was clear: Dont overfish large old females.Ž Were shing exactly the wrong sh, scientists warnA vermilion snapper has a 400-fold difference in eggs between the littlest and biggest mama “ sh. A small female snapper lays around 4,000 eggs. A whopper of a vermilion snapper can deposit eggs by the million.

But because the Langseths cruises often take it to areas rich in scientific interest and poor in natural resources, it would not be a good fit for industry demands. William Easterling, the NSFs geosciences assistant director, announced to the scientific community in an April 10 letter that the Langseth is no longer sustainable. The science agency will divest itself of the ship in mid-2020 and will no longer accept research proposals that involve the Langseth. Austin said he could not fathom why the NSF was unwilling to pay more than $10 million for seismic imaging but has pledged, to the International Ocean Discovery Program, six times as much money for deepsea scientific drilling. Without imaging, its really irresponsible to drill holes in the ocean,Ž he said, likening the scenario to turning on a Teslas autopilot while shutting off the cars radar and GPS. Normally, in cases like these, scientists would seek the support of the White Houses science adviser. Except the Trump administration has not yet filled this role. So expect more letters, Austin said. Were going to battle.Ž SHIPFrom Page B11

By Dustin Kent 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent PANAMA CITY BEACH „ On Christmas Eve 2017, while most people were at home celebrating the holiday with their families, Steve Jackson was in a hospital undergoing a surgery that resulted in seven screws and a plate being put in to repair a fractured collar bone suffered while biking. Just over four months later, he was back on his bike and back in the winners circle. Jackson, a 31-year-old engineer from Jupiter, took first place in Saturdays 36th IRONMAN 70.3 Gulf Coast Triathlon at Edgewater Beach Resort. He finished with a time of 4:03:46. Jackson said he was happy with his time, particularly given that it was his first race since the injury.

See IRONMAN, C6 By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press PONTE VEDRA BEACH „ Webb Simpson didnt back off at The Players Championship with another shot he wasnt planning to make, atonement on the island-green 17th and a 4-under 68 that stretched his lead to a record seven shots Saturday. He started out with an 8-foot birdie putt on the opening hole. His shot from the back bunker to a front pin on the par-5 11th raced across the green and into the cup for an unlikely eagle. And that island on the par-3 17th was no problem at all. A day after making double bogey to ruin his bid to break the course record, Simpson rapped in a 3-foot birdie putt. It added to a 19-under 197, tying the 54-hole record set by Greg Norman on a soft course in March. And the 32-year-old Simpson has history on his side. No one has ever lost a seven-shot lead in the final round in PGA Tour history.Tiger Woods had his best round on the Stadium Course, playing the final six holes in 1 over for a 65. Jordan Spieth made two bogeys in his round of 65 as both charged up the leaderboard in the morning with big crowds and loud cheers. That got them into the top 10, but they made up only three shots on Simpson. They still were 11 shots behind. Danny Lee was leading the B-Flight with a bogeyfree round, but only two birdies on the par 5s on the back nine. He shot a 70 and will be in the final group. Dustin Johnson at least improved his chances of staying for No. 1 with four birdies over his final 10 holes for a 69. He was in third place, nine shots behind and figured all he could do Sunday was go as low as he could and see where it led. Johnson is among six players to lose a six-shot lead in the final round, last fall in Shanghai. And with danger lurking at every corner on the Pete Dyedesigned Stadium Course, that would suggest that the crystal and largest paycheck in golf „ just shy of $2 million „ doesnt belong to Simpson just yet. He just hasnt shown any signs of cracking. His only two bogeys came on the toughest par-3 at Sawgrass (No. 8), and a three-putt from 40 feet on the 14th, the toughest hole in the third round. He finished the day with a par putt from 18 feet. A trio of PGA champions „ Jason Dufner (66), Jimmy Walker (70) and Jason Day (71) were at 9-under 207, along with Xander Schauffele (71). Lee was at 204, a score that would have led The Players in all but three of the years since it moved to May in 2007. Simpson stretches his Players lead to 7By Kyle Hightower The Associated Press BOSTON „ The jerseys and venues will be the same, but so much has changed since the last time Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics met in the Eastern Conference finals. Kyrie Irving was dealt to Boston in a blockbuster offseason deal for Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder. But following a roster upheaval in February the Cavs were left with only five players from last years team that rolled past the Celtics 4-1 to earn a place in the NBA Finals. Irving will watch this years rematch from the sideline after a pair of knee surgeries late in the regular season denied him an opportunity to play this postseason. It was the capstone of an injury-plagued year in Boston that also saw the seasons of Gordon Hayward and rookie Daniel Theis truncated. The one constant has been Clevelands LeBron James, who at age 33 has again found another gear in the playoffs despite the different pieces surrounding him. His 34.3 scoring average in these playoffs is his highest since the 2009 postseason. James can become the sixth player in league history to play in at least eight consecutive NBA Finals. The five others who have done so all played with the Celtics, led by Hall of Famer Bill Russells run of 10 straight appearances. James hasnt yet had a chance to reflect on his own run but says he isnt taking anything for granted at this point in his career. You dream about being able to play in big games in the NBA and even when I got to the NBA that was one of my only goals to be as great as I can be, to play in big games in the NBA and be remembered and I think Ive done that in my career,Ž he said. Just trying to add onto it while I can.Ž Cavaliers, Celtics ready for rematch at Eastern nalsCleveland Cavaliers LeBron James (23) drives against Boston Celtics Marcus Morris (13) during the third quarter on Feb. 11 in Boston.

** If you take Webb out of the equation, the golf course is playing about like it always does,Ž Johnson said. Hes the only one thats going really low.Ž For one morning, Woods created the biggest buzz of the week. He ran off four birdies in five holes at the start of his round, made the turn in 30 and then added a two-putt birdie at No. 11 and a pitch to 8 feet on the short 12th. He was in range of the course record that eluded Simpson on Saturday. Woods didnt do anything spectacularly wrong the rest of the way, he just didnt convert and dropped his lone shot on the 14th with a drive into thick rough that kept him from reaching the green. Eventually I was going to put all the pieces together and today, for the most part, I did that,Ž Woods said. It was his lowest round on the PGA Tour since a 65 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship at the end of the 2015 regular season. That was a month before he was sidelined with three more back surgeries. He played only one PGA Tour event since then until returning this year. Walking to the 10th tee, Spieth smiled and said it was good to see putts go in, and he was just getting warmed up. He birdied half of his holes „ six of them on the back nine, including the last three holes „ for 65. Woods and Spieth both made the cut on the number and will be paired in the final round Sunday. But this is Simpsons show until further notice. Normans record score of 264 is in play for the final round, and this could require a Sunday charge by someone and plenty of help from Simpson for the outcome to change. EUROPEAN TOUR: Mike Lorenzo-Vera of France hit a stunning 8-underpar 63 to take a two-shot lead into the “ nal round of the Sicilian Open. Lorenzo-Vera “ red an impressive 64 in high winds on Friday and he went one better, hitting eight birdies „ including three in a row „ to reach 15 under and put himself in pole position for a “ rst European Tour title. If I bring the good game, I can win for sure,Ž LorenzoVera said. If someone just doesnt go crazy and shoot 10 under ... if its good weather, Ill have a really good chance.Ž Countryman Julien Guerrier, who led overnight with Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark, signed for a 67 to slip two shots behind along with Joakim Lagergren of Sweden, who also carded a 63. Bjerregaard was one shot further back after starting his third round at Verdura Golf Club with a double bogey but “ ghting back to produce a 68. C2 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News HeraldWebb Simpson celebrates an eagle shot on the 11th hole during the third round of The Players Championship Saturday, in Ponte Vedra Beach. [JOHN RAOUX/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] The series starts Sunday in Boston. This is the eighth playoff matchup between the teams overall, with the Celtics leading 4-3. The Celtics are seeking their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2010, when they got past James and the Cavs in the East semifinals. Since Irvings injury, Celtics coach Brad Stevens has relied heavily on veteran Al Horford and a youthful corps that includes 24-year-olds Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart, 21-year-old Jaylen Brown and 20-year-old rookie Jayson Tatum. Horford is averaging career playoff-high 17 points per game, while carrying the leadership torch. Rozier has flourished in a starting role since Irving was sidelined in midMarch. Its carried over into the postseason where he is averaging 18.2 points per game. And Tatum is coming of a series against Philadelphia that saw him average 23.6 points per game „ the second-highest by a Celtics rookie in franchise history. I feel like we more together (than last year),Ž Rozier said. Obviously guys been going down all year and its like you never know whos going to down. But we found a way, we pulled together.Ž As for Roziers prediction for the series? Stay tuned,Ž he said. Some other things of note in the Eastern Conference finals: Buckeye roots Like James, Rozier first bounced a ball in Northeast Ohio. Rozier is from Shaker Heights, Ohio, a suburb on Clevelands east side. Hes been on James hoops radar since he was a high school freshman. And while Rozier has been a breakout star in these playoffs to NBA fans, James knew he would eventually shine. He was a confident kid then when I watched him at Shaker. And hes a confident player now, so Im not surprised,Ž James said. Hes gotten better and better. It was a steal when they drafted him out of Louisville, and hes just showcasing his abilities. ... So, everybody is going crazy over what hes doing but Im not. Hes a local guy.Ž (TD) Garden partyBoston has become a preferred spring destination for James. After a 2-9 start to his playoff career in New England, James has won his six straight postseason games on the road against the Celtics, a streak that began with his epic 45-point, 15-rebound performance in Game 6 for Miami in the 2012 con-ference finals. In those six wins, James averaged 34.3 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists. James has averaged 30.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.1 assists while going 8-9 on Boston parquets hardwood. Celtic pride Indiana pushed Cleveland to seven games in the opening round. The Pacers were physical, resilient and confident. The Cavs feel the young Celtics might be a greater challenge. Boston is better than Indiana,Ž Cavs forward Kyle Korver said. With as much respect as we have for Indiana, obviously, they took us to seven, I think defensively Boston is elite. Theyre really good. Theyre always in the right spot. They have a great game plan.Ž PLAYERSFrom Page C1 REMATCHFrom Page C1 The News Herald will publish announcements of area interest concerning meetings or events.

Led by Patrick Kane, the United States has impressed so far at the ice hockey world championship in Denmark. The U.S. opened with victory over Canada, the tournament favorite seeking a third title in four years and captained by NHL leading scorer Connor McDavid. Chasing its first medal at the tournament since bronze in 2015, the 5-4 win over Canada in a penalty shootout set the pace for the U.S. in Group B, followed by victories against host Denmark (4-0), Germany (3-0), Latvia (3-2 in OT) and South Korea (13-1). The decision to make Kane captain after a disappointing season with his Chicago Blackhawks has paid off. The 29-year-old star forward last played at the world championships in 2008 during his first season in the NHL and also the last time the Blackhawks missed the playoffs. In the meantime he won three Stanley Cup titles with the Blackhawks and was in the U.S. team at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics. Its a huge honor to represent the United States of America, the greatest country in the world,Ž Kane said. He has proved a leader on ice, scoring three goals and adding nine assists in the first five games at the championship. Kane was also key to other players being keen to join the team. His influence was as a magnet to attract players,Ž U.S. general manager Bill Zito said. The team includes game-breakers such as forwards Dylan Larkin of the Detroit Red Wings, Anders Lee of the New York Islanders, Chris Kreider of the New York Rangers and Johnny Gaudreau of the Calgary Flames. Cam Atkinson of the Columbus Blue Jackets has been the teams leading scorer at the championship with five goals. But theres also promising young talent, such as defenseman Quinn Hughes, a top 10 prospect in the 2018 NHL draft. Lot of good players, lot of young guys on this team, so its been a fun team to be around,Ž Kane said. Kanes Chicago teammate Alex DeBrincat, who is on the national team after scoring 28 goals in his rookie season with the Blackhawks, praised Kanes leadership qualities. He wants to be the best, hes always out there to be the best player on the ice,Ž DeBrincat said. For me, its taking that mentality and just using it. Everyone wants to be the best but some guys want that so much more and hes one of those guys.Ž Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy and Nashville Predators forward Nick Bonino have joined the team to strengthen the roster after the elimination from the NHL playoffs. With a quarterfinal spot all but ensured, the U.S. faces Norway on Sunday and Finland on Tuesday in their remaining Group B games. The most important game is the next one, so well look to continue improving as we get set for Norway,Ž head coach Jeff Blashill said.

Mark Scheifele gave Winnipeg a 4-1 lead midway through the second period with his 12th goal this postseason.Brayden McNabb scored midway through the first and William Karlsson late in the second period to pull Vegas within two, but the expansion team couldnt get closer.Winnipegs Connor Hellebuyck made 18 saves. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 22 shots for the Golden Knights.The Jets will host Game 2 on Monday night before the series shifts to Las Vegas.Winnipeg, which is making its deepest playoff run in franchise history, appeared to be in rhythm less than 48 hours after advancing past top-seeded Nashville.Vegas, meanwhile, seemed rusty after resting for nearly a week after eliminating San Jose in the second round.Or, maybe the Jets are just that good.Winnipegs fast, deep and talented team had 114 points this season, trailing only the Preda-tors league-high total by three points.The hard-charging, smooth-passing Jets put the Pacific Division champions on their heels right from the start and didnt relent.White-clad, towel-twirling raucous fans in the arena „ and packed on surrounding streets „ were fired up before the game started. And, they were given plenty of opportunities to cel-ebrate in the opening minutes.Byfugliens slap shot 1:05 into the game off a drop pass from Scheifele put Winnipeg up 1-0. That ignited the party-like atmosphere in a relatively cozy arena with just 16,345 seats and a low ceiling.Jets jump on Golden Knights early for winWinnipeg Jets Patrik Laine (29) celebrates his goal on Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (29) during the “ rst period of Game 1 of the Western Conference “ nal, Saturday in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

** C6 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News HeraldWell, I couldnt swim for about two months and I couldnt really run and I couldnt ride outside, so I just rode on my trainer (bike) inside for the winter,Ž he said. It was pretty mundane and boring, but I rode it as much as I could until my body could finally recover. Im very happy to get back here. I knew I had the capability in me (to win the race). I kind of rushed to get back as fast as possible. Ive got a couple of key races later in the year, but I wanted to do this race to test my fitness and see where I was and I was pretty happy with the result.Ž It was his second 70.3 title after winning in Raleigh, North Carolina last year. With the win he qualifies for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa, though he said he wont be attending, instead choosing to focus on the IRONMAN 140.6 World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. Jackson finished 11th in his age group at last years 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A Pittsburgh native, Jackson was a college swimmer at the University of Pittsburgh before taking up triathlon in 2011. The swimming component has been his strength as a competitor, though he feared after his wreck that it might end up being negated. I was really worried about my swim there for a while, that my strength would be taken away from me,Ž Jackson said. Fortunately, I had no problem with it and it doesnt bother me at all. Im fortunate. The doctor set me up well.Ž Florencia Morales was the first female finisher, as the 39-year-old Argentine completed her race in 4:39:46. Its her first 70.3 victory after finishing second in last years 70.3 Gulf Coast Triathlon, coming in 9:30 behind the American Rachel Olson. Im so happy,Ž Morales said. I wasnt expecting this at all. I was second at mile 11 (of the 13.1-mile run). After the second lap, someone yelled at me, two minutes behind. I never thought I would catch up, but I had to speed up just in case.Ž Morales, who is in just her third year of competing in triathlon, said she plans on going to South Africa for the 70.3 World Championship, as well as Kona for the 140.3 event. Im excited,Ž she said, but I know its going to be tough.Ž The top local finisher was Panama City Beach resident David Shearon, who took 44th overall and fourth in the 45-49 age group with a time of 4:39:06. In his 33rd year of competing in triathlons, the 48-year-old said he was proud of not only his race Saturday but of his ability to compete at high level for so many years. Ive worked really hard. Everybody that knows who I am knows this has been a lifetime of dedication for me,Ž he said. Ive done 33 years of triathlons, 185,000 miles of biking, and 50,000 miles of running. You dont know when its going to be your last one, but I had a great race today and Im grateful.Ž IRONMAN From Page C1 Runners make their way down Front Beach Road during the IRONMAN 70.3 on Saturday.

These are real-life impacts inspired by Florida invasive species. The Florida Panhandle is an attractive temperate escape from harsh winters for visitors and guests. The Panhandle is equally attractive to plants, insects, and animals from all over the world. You may ask, well, whats the problem? For most introduced species, there really is no problem. Many non-native plants can be used in landscapes and are not a threat to our natural areas. Many insects/animals that escape domestication are unable to reproduce and establish feral colonies successfully. However, some creatures thrive without the pressure of natural pests found in their native lands and this is when we have a problem. So, what makes something an invasive species rather than just a standard pest? To be classified as invasive,Ž the species must cause economic, ecological, or human harm. It may be regulated by agencies such as United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS). Allowed to reproduce unchecked, invasive species can reduce biodiversity by outcompeting or preying on native plant, animal, and insect species. In ecological systems, there is always a trickle-down effect that may not be obvious at first glance. One plant species is likely to support multiple arthropods, reptiles, birds, and mammals„ not to mention soil microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria that we tend to forget about because we dont see them. When you lose or reduce that plant, the impact goes beyond that one species and upsets the natural balance. Billions of dollars are spent trying to prevent introduction and manage invasive species in the U.S. every year.How can you help to reduce invasive species?€ Only buy plants and animals from licensed dealers; follow rules for transporting across state lines. € Do not transport firewood; buy at or close to campsite to avoid moving insects and disease. € Never release pets or plants into the wild.Ž If you have a pet you are no longer able to keep or products of science experiments, check with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission ( about pet amnesty programs. € Be a citizen scientist;be able to recognize invasive species and eliminate from your own property, engage and educate friends and family, report sightings through the Early Detection & Distribution Mapping System(https:// to learn more about invasive species?Upcoming events:Lion Tamer Dive Tournament: Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20; May 20 is Family Fun Day from 1-6 p.m. at Capt.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 D3PANAMA CITY „ The picture youre seeing of the palm was planted near the BX at Tyndall Air Force Baseseveral months ago. As you can see, the dead fronds are still on the palm. Theyve recently removed the wooden frame but have they been watering them on a regular basis? At the nursery, where they came from, they were probably watered at least twice a week. During the months of February through April, Tyndall received approximately 9.44 inches of rain. This is not enough for the palms to survive. Im hoping they can solve the problem because those palms are over30 years old. Plants, seeds, insects A booklet you might purchase at this time is called Floridas Best Native Landscape Plants,Ž available through the University of Florida at Gainesville. You may have to go online to find one. The following are four plants you may add to your garden at this time. Beautiful TrustŽ Korean bellflower (Campanula takesimana) has bloomsthat rise on tall stems. Its large leaves make the flowers more visible. Since the flowers are so dainty, group three or more plants together. Tower WhiteŽ columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris flore-pleno) are excellent plants for hummingbirds to enjoy the nectar. The blooms are white and will brighten up a shady area. Babywing White begonia (Begonia hybrid) is a great space-saver. Because the crisp white flowers have thick petals and a waxy texture, theyre great at reflecting light. These plants are excellent in combination of Red DragonŽ Caladium. For easy to grow cut flowers, you might add Sonata WhiteŽ Cosmos. Butterflies like to visit these 3-inch flowers. This is a good month to seed vegetables, fruits, and flowers that need warm soil to germinate. This includes beans, squash, alera, watermelons, cucumbers, southern peas, pumpkins, peanuts, and corn. Easy flowers to grow include globe amaranth, marigold, Indian blankets, cosmos, sunflowers, spider flowers, and zinnias. Insects to check on are aphids and cutworms. Aphids are commonly found on camellia, crepe myrtle, gardenia, hibiscus, palms, and roses. Cutworms make a meal of almost any plant. A good insecticide will control these two insects. Howard C. Gray is a horticulturalist and former agent with the University of Florida Extension Office.BOTANIST'S CORNERTime to plant seeds Howard GrayA palm is planted at Tyndall Air Force Base.

** D4 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Marc Strickland The Bay County Genealogical SocietyDNA is easy to spell. Understanding Deoxyribonucleic Acid can be intimidating. The newly formed Northwest Florida Genetic Genealogy Society (NFGGS) is planning to change all of that. NFGGS officially organized April 14 and meets on the third Saturday of the month from4-5:30 p.m. at the Niceville Family History Center, 1100 South Palm Boulevard in Niceville. The approach is not to simply understand DNA, but how to use it in the research of genetic genealogy. The approach our society is taking is to treat genealogy, and genetic genealogy like town bullies and confront them head-on and as a group of fed-up neighbors,Ž explained Marc Strickland, who chided, We are fed up and were not taking it anymore.Ž Bill Streitz, Mike Kleypas,and Strickland are the co-founders. All three were in a FamilySearch Family Tree genealogy class together and discovered they had a common interest in learning more about DNA and genetic genealogy. It did not take long for the three to realize they also had a common approach to learning more about it. If you cant explain it simply, dont explain it at all,Ž Kleypas said. We dont want people trying to impress us with their knowledge or ability to say big words. We simply want to learn what we need to know to do simple genetic genealogical research.Ž We welcome anyone who wants to come, contribute, and learn about DNA. We give people a survey to determine what they know and what they want to learn,Ž said Streitz, whoalso manages a local group of fly fishers, in addition to working his genealogy. The society is free. There are no dues. There are no formalities. The group meets in the Niceville Family History Center. The next meeting is scheduled for May 19 from 4-5:30 p.m. An agenda is an essential part of every meeting and the three co-founders will publish and email one for each meeting. Meetings follow the format of 30 minutes of society business and one hour of DNA education. If you are interested in participating, simply send an email to Marc Strickland at marcstrickland5@gmail. com, and he will put your name in the database. You can remove it at any time. The May 19 meeting will feature John Marshall, who will make a presentation on understanding DNA at a very basic level. The society is working to be a clearinghouse of basic DNAand genetic genealogy information. There is a growing database of books and websites teaching the basics. We really dont want any 10-pound brains to wow us with what they know. Ours is more at a grade-school level and were happy that way,Ž Strickland said. Many times, people discusstheir DNAtesting results and dont even understand what they are talking about. It is really frustrating. We want to change that.Ž The society exists to help others overcome the fear they have of being in a group and feeling uncomfortable about asking what they consider to be a stupid question.Ž There are big plans and they would love it if you would join them.Strickland is trying to contact any and all genealogy societies and historical organizations in the 16 counties making up Northwest Florida.

(On some of the stamps, the "Jenny" was printed upside-down, making them collector's items.) On this date: In 1568, forces loyal to Mary, Queen of Scots were defeated by troops under her half-brother and Regent of Scotland, the Earl of Moray, in the Battle of Langside, thwarting Mary's attempt to regain power almost a year after she was forced to abdicate. In 1607, English colonists arrived by ship at the site of what became the Jamestown settlement in Virginia (the colonists went ashore the next day).

DEAR ABBY: My fiance and I are looking forward to being married soon. The problem is, he wants a traditional wedding with bridesmaids and groomsmen, and I prefer a wedding at the courthouse. Im not good at planning parties, and we have almost no budget to work with. We will be paying for all of this out of pocket. We have a venue booked on a beach. However, the amount of planning thats going into this weeklong wedding/ family vacation „ with all invitees attending „ is becoming too much. My future mother-in-law doesnt care for me, and dealing with her is stressful. My fiance is not planning the wedding. I am, by default. I really dont want to do this, and we cant hire a wedding planner. Do you have any suggestions on how to compromise on this situation? „ WEDDED UN-BLISS IN TEXASDEAR WEDDED UN-BLISS: There are solid reasons it is recommended that engaged couples have premarital counseling to work out any disagreements before the vows are spoken. Im suggesting it for you. Your celebration should be kept low-key and inexpensive, and you do not have to explain or apologize to anyone for it. I would like to caution you, however, to think twice about going through with this marriage. From where I sit, you will have a built-in mother-inlaw problem because the woman doesnt like you, as well as an irresponsible husband who is unwilling to compromise. It doesnt take a crystal ball to predict that you will have some serious challenges to contend with.

Due to concerns rising out of the St. Andrews neighborhood, the Panama City Commission is considering a stricter noise ordinance. Dennis Bickham: "You have got to be kidding me. The owners of these businesses are creating noise that is, without question, disturbing their residential neighbors and you blame those that are being disturbed for not wanting to "“ x" the problem by changing their houses so as to insulate them from the oppressive noise levels. The businesses do not and should not have the right to disturb the nearby residents with excessive noise. The solution is simple cut the noise or move or close the businesses. The rights of the residents to peacefully exist in their homes take precedent over a commercial concern." We asked readers whether changes needed to be made after a spate of accidents during this year's Thunder Beach Spring Rally. Lori Defisher: "The majority of the accidents were caused by locals cause most of them don't pay attention, drunk or otherwise, so don't blame it on the bikers.

** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 E1 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Trumps favorable poll numbers went up last week. Contrary to what you hear from the mainstream media, his numbers are higher than Obamas were at the same point in his presidency. Trump has disrupted Washington, which is what he was sent there to do. Tax and regulation cuts have ignited the economy, unemployment is at a 17-year low, and the stock market is rolling. Trump may even bring peace to the Korean Peninsula. There is talk of a Nobel Peace Prize; I bet Trump would kill for a Peace Prize. Yet with all the revelations of Playboy Bunnies and porn stars in his past, his biggest challenge will be if he can make peace with Melania. In the tradition of the great peacemakers of our time, JFK (brokered the Soviet Unions removal of nukes from Cuba) and Bill Clinton (stopped ethnic cleansingŽ in Bosnia), now Trump fixes North Koreas nuclear buildup. I guess accomplished womanizers hate to see the earth blown to smithereens until they are done bedding as many women as they can. His personal attorney and fixer,Ž Michael Cohen, has been the one paying these women for their silence. $130,000 seems to be the number they arrived at for a onenighter with Trump. So he is also bringing highpaying jobs to women. Winning! Cohens payment was the first time a prostitute was paid money not to make a loud noise. If Michael Cohen made a $130K illegal payment in kindŽ to Trump, then how about formally prosecuting the media for their billions of dollars worth of in kind,Ž always favorable coverage for Democrats over the years? Absent any workable ideas of their own, the left and their puppets in the media continue trying to destroy Trump with his base, the religious middle-income working class. Its not working. Midwesterners and we Southerners seem unfazed by Trumps past. In fact, it was pretty much in his brochure when he was elected. We seem to be saying, Yeah, hes a cad, but hes our cad.Ž Secular coastal elitists who drive the liberal narrative do not understand middle America. We have a unique relationship with religion, and we dont like to be told what to do by command-and-control Democrats. God is my Co-pilotŽ stickers are on a lot of our cars. I am not a church every Sunday guy. But I do believe God is always with me, a position I maintain when I am pulled over alone in the carpool lanes in Atlanta.Just another week in the life of our very stable genius Tom Purcell Ron HartYouve lost your sense of humor, and you need to get it back!Ž Such was the admonishment my mother gave me many times over the years when one of lifes temporary failures gave me license to indulge in self-loathing. Life is full of difficulty,Ž shed say, and you can either find the humor in life or let its continuous challenges make you miserable and self-absorbed!Ž In my mothers world, nothing is worse than selfabsorption„ nothing is worse thanbeing trapped in the narrowness of your own point of view. During each of her corrective sessions,Ž shed have me laughing out loud before long. You see, laughing loudly at lifes foibles was the greatest gift she ever gave my five sisters and me. Most nights after dinner, when I was young, my sisters and I sat around the table, relating stories about what wed done that day or week and laugh deep into the evening. On her 80th birthday a year ago, each of her family members (including 17 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren) shared stories, on video, about how her nurturing, love and humor has touched us all„ a video presentation that was side-splitting funny. One of my moms funniest stories dates back to the 1980s. While other moms got real jobs in companies, my mom, much to my familys embarrassment, staged childrens birthday parties as Clown Clara. She wasnt embarrassed, though; she couldnt have cared less what other people thought. She loved nothing more than making children laugh, and children loved her Clown Clara character. Regrettably, a male thief dressed as a clown had been robbing area banks; the clown robber had been widely reported upon in the local media. One Saturday morning, the clown robber struck again and the cops were on high alert. Coincidentally, my mother, dressed as Clown Clara, was speeding to a gig that same morning (she still has a lead foot). A police officer spotted her and the chase was on. He barked at her to exit the station wagon, hands up, no funny business! It took some time to clear up the confusion„ at one point, the cop thought my mother was in cahoots with the guy whod hired her to stage his kids party. When the confusion was finally ironed out, my mom had but one response: a giant burst of laughter. My mother knew of laughters benefits long before scientific studies confirmed them. Laughter, reports Forbes, releases endorphins in the brain and induces euphoria. It activates the release of For Mothers Day, nd our lost sense of humorSee PURCELL, E2 See HART, E2Former President George W. Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, watch as the casket of former “ rst lady Barbara Bush is loaded into a hearse at St. Martins Episcopal church on April 21 in Houston. [EVAN VUCCI/AP FILE] The dangers of isolation loom,Ž former president George W. Bush saidin remarks Thursday night at the Atlantic Council. The price of greatness is responsibilities. One cannot rise to be in many ways the leading community in the civilized world without being involved in its problems, without being convulsed by its agonies and inspired by its causes. People in the United States cannot escape world responsibility.Ž In receiving the Atlantic Councils Distinguished International Leadership Award for his work tofight HIV/AIDS through the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) initiative in Africa, he explained, In 2003, we decided that the greatest, wealthiest nation ever had a moral responsibility to intervene. ... We recognized, too, that the United States had a national security imperative to act. Societies mired in disease breed hopelessness and despair, leaving those forgotten by wealthy nations susceptible to recruitment by radical extremists.Ž Notice what words did not appear in Bushs remarks: winning,Ž losing,Ž me,Ž ripped off.Ž Bush, like every other modern president save the current one, understood the aim to use Americas resource to make the world safer and freer, which in turn will accrue to our benefit. (PEPFAR, Bush explained, Its the best kind of diplomacy there is. Its soft power at its most beautiful.Ž) We cannot help but note his remarks came on the same day the administration lost its most senior official charged with addressing international pandemic diseases. The Post reports: The top White House official responsible for leading the U.S. response in the event of a deadly pandemic has left the administration, and the global health security team he oversaw has been disbanded under a reorganization by national security adviser John Bolton. The abrupt departure of Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer from the National Security Council means no senior administration official is now focused solely on global health security. ...Ž You see, for Trump foreign policy is about not being taken advantage of and about undoing multilateral strictures. Its about demanding, in often obnoxious language, our allies pay up. On Thursday, we also saw the Iranians embarrass the administration by releasing a letter in which Trump (incorrectly) claimed we had spent $7 trillion in the Middle East and demanded these countries do more in return. All presidents ask U.S. allies to step up, but none has done it as petulantly as Trump has. Trump operates on threats and bluster and is motivated by personal acclaim. No one has done as much. ...,Ž he says about things many presidents, in fact, have done just as well, if not better. No one expected... ,Ž he declares about things many of us expected. It wasnt too long ago that we had presidents who talked not about what the United States was entitled to, but who told their fellow citizens, as Bush did, of those to whom much is given, much is required.Ž We are not being bled dry by the rest of the world, as Trump would have us believe. Bush said, simply, I believe that spending less than two-tenths of 1 percent of our federal budget to save millions of lives is the moral, the practical [thing to do], and in the national security interests of the United States.Ž Bushs tone„ and I dont mean to damn with faint praise„ was so much more presidential than Trumps one has to remember that this is how presidents are supposed to sound, and generally did, until the American people elevated a crass grifter to the presidency.George W. Bush reminds us how decent leaders sound J e n n i f e r R u b i n Jennifer Rubin The price of greatness is responsibilities.

** E2 Sunday, May 13, 2018 | The News Herald VIEWPOINTS Three years ago, on the 50th anniversary of the march from Selma, Alabama,to Montgomery for voting rights, I sat in an Alabama church pew with then-Sen. Jeff Sessions. He wore the flushed, impatient face of someone who had to be there. Sessions sat on the other side of my husband, his colleague Sherrod Brown, in Brown Chapel AME Church, which was the starting point for the marches. We were part of a congressional sojourn led by civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis. Hawaiis Sen. Mazie Hirono had given leis to all of her colleagues in attendance. As the members of the Tabernacle of Praise Church choir belted out their joy, I took a picture of my happy husband. Only later did I noticeSessions cheeks matched the fuchsia of the flowers around his neck. I sat in that pew, in a service celebrating the fight for voting rights, and thought about how Coretta Scott King, the widow of Martin Luther King Jr., felt about Sessions. I knew only that she had written a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1986 that was widely credited with helping to block his nomination as a federal court judge. Strom Thurmond, the chairman of that committee, never entered it into the Congressional Record. We were able to read her letter for the first time last year, after The Washington Post published it. Allowing Sessions, with his history of reprehensive conduct,Ž to join the bench, she insisted, would irreparably damage the work ofŽ her husband. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters,Ž she wrote. Helps to explain that blush. Three decades later, Donald Trump nominated Sessions as U.S. attorney general, and the Republican Senate majority ushered him in. Sessions has wasted no time in proving he is indeed the racist Coretta Scott King once warned us about. Now hes using his federal power to target children of color. In two speeches this past week, Sessions bellowed his latest version of zero toleranceŽ for undocumented immigrants. The self-avowed Christian calls them illegals,Ž and we know why. If you can pretend theyre not human, you dont have to think about what your God knows youre doing to them. If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you as required by law,Ž Sessions said. If you dont like that, then dont smuggle children over our border.Ž Hes just confirming what we already knew. The New York Times Caitlin Dickerson reported last month that more than 700 children have been taken from adults claiming to be their parents since October, including more than 100 children under the age of 4.Ž Say that out loud: More than 100 children under the age of 4. Think of them as your own, if thats the only way you can imagine the anguish of those innocent babies. This trauma will affect them for the rest of their lives. Sessions likes to cast himself as a defender of the unborn. Like too many so-called pro-lifers, his concern for children ends with his desire to control a womans womb. Boy, do I know that type. In recent weeks, hundreds of preprinted pro-lifeŽ postcards have flooded our home mailbox. Occasionally, they include scrawled postscripts, such as this anonymous warning: God! is watching You „ You will Be JUDGED one Day?Ž Not one of these notes has mentioned those hundreds of children whove been separated from their parents. If you cherish children, how can you remain silent in the face of this assault on their lives? If youre a person of faith, do you think Gods not watching? Most of my hate mail about immigrants comes from men. I dont easily give up on people. So my hope is that many Republican women are sickened by this administrations willingness to punish innocent children. Where are you, my sisters? Where are you, mothers, aunts and grandmothers „ any woman who loves a child? Is there a limit to what you would do to save the life of a child you love? Why, then, would we ask any less of parents who are fleeing the most dangerous countries in the world to save the lives of their children? Yes, there are laws. And there are rules „ God, yes, more by the day. But if your childs life were at stake, is there any law you wouldnt break, any border you wouldnt cross, to keep your child safe? To keep your child alive? Every American who cherishes a child understands the same fierce force of that love. I know it, and you know it. Its time you let your members of Congress know it, too. You want to save the lives of children? Well, there they are, innocent and terrified, screaming for parents who tried to save them.

FRANKLIN/AP FILE] the neurotransmitter serotonin,Ž which provides a similar effect to antidepressants. It helps us form social bonds and strengthen our relationships. My mother also knows that not all laughter is created equal. Self-deprecating humor is the best kind. It uplifts us and brings us together. By poking fun at ourselves, we escape ourselves and focus more outwardly on others. However, she greatly dislikes sarcasm, mockery or ridicule„ humorŽ that is popular with many late-night comedians in our divided and polarized times. Such humorŽ does not uplift. It demonizes those with whom we disagree. It encourages us to harden our thinking. It increases polarization. It tears us apart. Regardless of ones politics or ideology, most of us agree on the issues of the day more than we disagree. Our differences have to do with approach, not necessarily the outcome. All of us want to eradicate poverty, educate our children and solve a zillion other problems. We need to re-engage in civil conversation to more effectively do that. One way to get started is to heed my mothers advice. Hey, America, weve lost our sense of humor and we need to get it back!Ž PURCELLFrom Page E1So if the lefts game plan is to getŽ Trump on his personal conduct, it aint working. Transformative leaders have always had messy personal lives. Apples Steve Jobs was a total ass, Winston Churchill a huge drinker and womanizer. Ditto for Ben Franklin and our other Founding Fathers. No great man was ever a good man. We look beyond that and often even enjoy hearing about their foibles. It makes us all feel better about ourselves when flaws in our leaders are laid bare. These 8and 12-year-old allegations of groping or sexual advances are seen by Americans for what they are: money grubbing by opportunistic women, spurred on by the media. Under what other circumstance would Stormy Daniels appear on Saturday Night Live,Ž or triple her appearance fees? The left is trying to promote a porno actress who slept with a much older and rich, married man, got money for it, and then violated a legal nondisclosure contract as some paragon of virtue. VirtueŽ in the porn business is keeping your clothes on for more than two minutes after the pizza delivery guy arrives at your house. The petty and bureaucratic deep stateŽ attempts to destroy Trump and his supporters reinforce why he was sent to Washington to change the place. They just make him stronger. America sees the situation for what it is: the mean and dirty politics the Democrats have always used. To demonstrate how partisan political leftists are, they are suddenly McCarthy-like anti-Russian. They see Russian collusion in everything. While their socialist views are mirrored in the Soviet Unions doctrines, they now are hawks on Russia. Politics makes strange bedfellows. I remember a time, not a decade ago, when Democrats had sex scandals and the GOP demonized Russia.

Now hes using his federal power to target children of color. In two speeches this past week, Sessions bellowed his latest version of zero toleranceŽ for undocumented immigrants. The selfavowed Christian calls them illegals,Ž and we know why. If you can pretend theyre not human, you dont have to think about what your God knows youre doing to them. No great man was ever a good man. We look beyond that and often even enjoy hearing about their foibles. It makes us all feel better about ourselves when aws in our leaders are laid bare.


** The News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 E3 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEWU.S. Rep. Dennis Ross last week made his first public appearance since announcing he was retiring from Congress. And the Lakeland Republicans comments reminded us a prickly issue remains unresolved. Speaking in Bartow, Ross said participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, ought to have an avenue to earn U.S. citizenship, according to We have to make sure those who came here of no accord of their own are treated fairly. Let them earn their way to citizenship. ... Thats not amnesty; it is earning their way,Ž he said. Ross indicated he was disappointedŽ such a view had garnered criticism from immigration hardliners in Congress. After all, those who follow Ross closely know hes no softy on dealing with illegal immigration. Ross has supported measures to crack down on sanctuary cities and also has favored constructing a wall along the Mexican border. DACA, crafted as protection against deportation by the Obama administration, covers roughly 800,000 people whose parents entered illegally and brought them to the United States as children. Last September the Trump administration announced the end of the program, giving Congress until early March to craft a legislative solution. As Congress dawdled, 15 states sued to prevent the administration from ending DACA. Last week, however, seven states sued the administration from the other side, for failing to end DACA, which they argue is unconstitutional. Ross is solidly in the mainstream on DACA. In fact, its one of the few things most Americans can agree on. A month ago a Quinnipiac University poll revealed 71 percent of Americans believe illegal immigration from Mexico is an important problem.Ž Yet 77 percent thought DACA enrollees should be allowed to remain in America and apply for citizenship. To that end, Ross is one of 59 sponsors „ 29 Republicans, 30 Democrats „ of the Uniting and Securing America Act. The measure „ in a trade for tougher border security „ would permit DACA participants who have been in the country at least four years to gain permanent legal status if they enroll in higher education, join the military or are gainfully employed, among other requirements. Once they achieve that, they could pursue citizenship just as immigrants who utilize existing legal channels. The bill offers a fair compromise, contains similar provisions as other DACA relief bills floating around Capitol Hill and has a solid base of bipartisan support in the House. Yet it hasnt moved an inch through the legislative mill since being introduced in January „ which suggests the competing lawsuits will force the Supreme Court, and not our lawmakers, to do the dirty work for DACA enrollees. Its perplexing why this cant get done, but the DACA stalemate demonstrates the political process is as broken as our immigration system. No wonder Dennis Ross wants out. A version of this editorial first appeared in The Ledger, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.OUR VIEWCongress should pass DACA compromiseBefore the massive growth of our welfare state, private charity was the sole option for an individual or family facing insurmountable financial difficulties or other challenges. How do we know that? There is no history of Americans dying on the streets because they could not find food or basic medical assistance. Respecting the biblical commandment to honor thy father and mother, children took care of their elderly or infirm parents. Family members and the local church also helped those who had fallen on hard times. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, charities started playing a major role. In 1887, religious leaders founded the Charity Organization Society, which became the first United Way organization. In 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America started helping at-risk youths reach their full potential. In 1913, the American Cancer Society, dedicated to curing and eliminating cancer, was formed. With their millions of dollars, industrial giants such as Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller created our nations first philanthropic organizations. Generosity has always been a part of the American genome. Alexis de Tocqueville, a French civil servant, made a nine-month visit to our country in 1831 and 1832, ostensibly to study our prisons. Instead, his visit resulted in his writing Democracy in America,Ž one of the most influential books about our nation. Tocqueville didnt use the term philanthropy,Ž but he wrote extensively about how Americans love to form all kinds of nongovernmental associations to help one another. These associations include professional, social, civic and other volunteer organizations seeking to serve the public good and improve the quality of human lives. The bottom line is we Americans are the most generous people in the world, according to the new Almanac of American Philanthropy „ something of which we should be proud. Before the welfare state, charity embodied both a sense of gratitude on the behalf of the recipient and magnanimity on the behalves of donors. There was a sense of civility by the recipients. They did not feel that they were owed, were entitled to or had a right to the largesse of the donor. Recipients probably felt that if they werent civil and didnt express their gratitude, more assistance wouldnt be forthcoming. In other words, they were reluctant to bite the hand that helped them. With churches and other private agencies helping, people were much likelier to help themselves and less likely to engage in self-destructive behavior. Part of the message of charitable groups was: Well help you if you help yourself.Ž Enter the federal government. Civility and gratitude toward ones benefactors are no longer required in the welfare state. In fact, one can be arrogant and hostile toward the donorsŽ (taxpayers), as well as the civil servants who dish out the benefits. The handouts that recipients get are no longer called charity; theyre called entitlements „ as if what is received were earned. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University and a columnist with Creators Syndicate.Before and after welfare handouts ONLY ONLINEWRITE TO US: Letters should not exceed 300 words and include the writers name, address and phone number for veri“ cation.

CLASSIFIEDSThe News Herald | Sunday, May 13, 2018 F F 7 7 636 W. 15th Street • Panama City, FL 32401 850.348.1038 I’m back in business at Bay Dodge! Call me. Victor Torres NF-1179098 D O D G E C H R Y S L E R DODGE CHRYSLER J E E P R A M H Y U N D A I JEEP RAM HYUNDAI M I T S U B I S H I L I N C O L N MITSUBISHI LINCOLN I have a problem with my 2002 Ford F-150 with a 5.4 liter engine. My problem is a miss re when the engine is rst started. I know it is cylinder number 4 miss ring and I have replaced all the coils and spark plugs. The fuel pressure is good according to my repair shop in St. Joe. They have pulled their hair out trying to stop this miss on this cylinder #4. It only misses for about 10 to 15 seconds then it smoothes out. Of course, the check engine light comes on and every time it is the same code. Miss re on cylinder #4 the code is P0304. Do you have any ideas on what will cause my engine to miss re on one cylinder when it rst starts up? If I shut the truck off and wait 10 minutes it will miss res. If I shut it off and immediately start it up it does not miss re. Let it sit for 10 minutes and the miss re comes back. I know the engine has good compression and the plugs and coils are new and they came from the local dealership. Hot or cold it does not matter it will miss for about 10 to 15 MISSING FORD ENGINE WHEN FIRST STARTS James Morrisjames@masterautotech.comTHE AUTOADVISORNF-1186498seconds and then it runs great. Damon Damon, I have seen this problem you are describing on GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engines all the time. The problem on a GDI engine is the injector sprays directly into the combustion chamber instead of the backside of the intake valve, like your engine is designed to do. I suspect the problem you have has to do with hard carbon deposits that are built up on the backside of the intake valve. These hard deposits on a GDI engine keep the valves from closing tight allowing this miss re problem to show up. What I suspect is wrong with your engine may be carbon deposits built up on the backside of your intake valve. These carbon deposits are absorbing your fuel from your fuel injector depriving the cylinder of fuel. This will let that number 4 cylinder run lean for the rst 10 to 15 seconds when you rst start up the engine after the engine has sat for a few minutes. My suggestion is to clean the backside of your intake valves with a spray can of Intake Valve CleanerŽ from CRC that you can purchase from your local NAPA auto parts store. Follow the instructions on the back of the can and see if this stops your miss re problem. I use this cleaner in just about every car I work on that has a drive ability problem. On GDI engines I use this cleaner every 10,000 miles. It is a cheap price to pay for a product that will give you better engine performance and improved fuel mileage if used as a prophylactic to keep this problem from developing. If we can help solve your problem, give us a call (850-763-0555). If we need to keep your truck overnight we will loan you a car to drive (at no charge) while we solve your missing Ford.
