The agreement also requires the company to provide at least 50 new full-time jobs for at least five years from the date of their creation Â„ by Dec. 31, 2023. The average annual wage must be at least $37,500 plus benefits for each year during the agreement.Air Temp of America Inc. was formed asa U.S.subsid-iary of Air Temp of Mexico, located in Merida, Yucatn.

[STEVE PETYERAK/THE WEATHER CHANNEL] By Eryn Dion747-5069 | @PCNHErynDion email@example.comPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ If the low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico currently drenching Central Florida had defied the odds and orga-nized into a tropical system, it would have been number 95 in the long line of storms Jim Cantore has covered.Instead, the front weakened and became more disorganized overnight. Chances of subtropical development dropped, first to 30 percent, then down to 20 percent, then further. Wrapping up a live shot near the City Pier on Tuesday morning talking about the weather system, Cantore, of The Weather Channel fame, and his team decided to call this one and head home.ÂSometimes you win some; sometimes you lose some,ÂŽ he said in an interview while traveling to the airport.The Florida trip was a long one for Cantore and his team. They spent Monday in Fort Lauderdale; then delayed flights and missed connections in their jump over to Panama City Beach stretched the day into 18 hours, all for a storm that was rapidly weakening.ItÂs a hallmark of hurri-cane season, which officially starts June 1, and itÂs part of who Cantore is Â„ the guy in the storm, in the live shot in the heart of the action, wind whipping, barely hanging onto his mic. If thereÂs a hurricane, or a blizzard, or a flood, or a tornado, heÂs there.Still, as hurricane season Cantore lms in PCBLow pressure system in Gulf weakens, but hurricane season on horizonSee CANTORE, A3By Collin Breaux747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB CollinB@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY Â„ Florida State University Panama City has added to its public safety and security offerings with a new masterÂs degree program in law enforcement intelligence.College faculty, adminis-trators and law enforcement officials announced the new program at the campus Tuesday.ÂThe students that we are attracting are mainly military students who are entering into the workforce outside the military and students currently in law enforcement who are going to enhance their career,ÂŽ said public safety and security instruc-tor Banyon Pelham. About 20 students already have applied for the program, which will be offered online only and starts this fall. Also this fall, the campus will begin a new undergraduate mechanical engineering program and a graduate-level systems engineering program, both announced in January.The new law enforcement intelligence program will Âprovide students with advanced skills in evaluating intelligence functions through online coursework in criminal justice, economics, political science and military science,ÂŽ according to a press release from the college. It also will include a semester-long research project to give students hands-on manage-ment experience.Coursework will focus on all intelligence aspects including Âmanagement, analysis and dissemination,ÂŽ Pelham said, giving students FSUPC adds masterÂs in law enforcement intelligenceSee FSU, A3

There are 229 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On May 16, 1868, at the U.S. Senate impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson, 35 out of 54 senators voted to Â“ nd Johnson guilty of "high crimes and misdemeanors" over his attempted dismissal of Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict; the trial ended 10 days later after two other articles of impeachment went down to defeat as well. On this date: In 1532 Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro and a small band of soldiers landed on the northwestern coast of Peru. I n 1703 (Old Style calendar), the Russian city of Saint Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great. In 1770 Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was 15. In 1920 Joan of Arc was canonized by Pope Benedict XV. In 1939 the federal government began its Â“ rst food stamp program in Rochester, New York. In 1946 the Irving Berlin musical "Annie Get Your Gun," starring Ethel Merman as Annie Oakley, opened on Broadway. In 1948 CBS News correspondent George Polk, who had been covering the Greek civil war between communist and nationalist forces, was found slain in Salonika Harbor. In 1953 Associated Press correspondent William N. Oatis was released by communist authorities in Czechoslovakia, where he had been imprisoned for two years after being forced to confess to espionage while working as the AP's Prague bureau chief. In 1966 China launched the Cultural Revolution, a radical as well as deadly reform movement aimed at purging the country of "counter-revolutionaries." In 1975, Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the Â“ rst woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 A3a complete tool kit for crime-solving.FSU Panama City already offers undergraduate programs in crime scene investigation, law enforce-ment intelligence and law enforcement operations, along with certificates in underwater crime scene investigation and law enforcement intelligence.ÂThis program will be an asset to students locally and throughout the nation,ÂŽ Dean Randy Hanna, who was not at TuesdayÂs announcement, stated in the news release. ÂOur bachelorÂs program in public safety and security has grown recently to add new specialties and draw students from around the country. Expanding to the masterÂs degree level, we can provide students with the research and management skills necessary to excel in their fields.ÂŽDuring TuesdayÂs announcement, Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said local law enforce-ment is fortunate to have a partnership with FSU Panama City, which he said he will encourage BCSO personnel to take.ÂIt seems to improve the professionalism of law enforcement, and we have deputies that take advan-tage of the programs out here,ÂŽ Ford said. ÂThe sheriffÂs office recently hired, probably two years ago, a graduate of the bachelorÂs program here whoÂs now enrolled in the law enforcement intelligence masterÂs program, and she is working in our criminal investigations division.ÂŽFaculty members involved with the program Â„ which school officials took about two years to develop Â„ have profes-sional experience with law enforcement intelligence.

FSUFrom Page A1Florida State University Panama City public safety and security instructor Banyon Pelham speaks Tuesday during an announcement for the schoolÂs new law enforcement intelligence masterÂs degree program. [COLLIN BREAUX/THE NEWS HERALD] in. So we had to wait for them to announceÂŽ for grant approval, County Manager Bob Majka said Tuesday.The county also is proposing to give the company a property tax break.ÂWith the tax abatement process, there is an annual audit that is done by the property appraiser every year, and the property appraiser makes a report to the county commission that says, ÂThese jobs were created and they were in place,Â ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd if that is the case, they get their abatement for the year.ÂŽThe grant agreement is modeled after one previously entered into with GKN Aerospace, whose was the first county incentive grant doled out by Bay County.The agreement also requires Air Temp of America to invest or compel a third party to invest $3 million on equipment, construction of new capital facili-ties or improvements to existing capital facilities before April 1, 2023.The company, which was founded in 1982, produces automotive parts including con-densers, radiators, heat exchangers, evaporators and other components. Air Temp is a ÂTier 1ÂŽ supplier to Volkswagen, Nissan, Ford, Peugeot and other original man-ufacturing companies and has been named as the Volkswagen supplier of the year five times.ÂWe have been working this project for almost two years now with your support,ÂŽ EDA President Becca Hardin told the commission Tuesday, adding the company already ships parts to the Port of Panama City. ÂThey are going to continue to grow their services with the port, and they are going to continue to grow in our community.ÂŽThe commission on Tuesday also approved adding five citizens to a new advisory committee that will rank applications for county funds submitted by outside agencies. Selected for the new committee were Judy Roulhac, Brandon Aldridge, Joseph Ash-brook, John Robbins and Jeff DiBenedictis. Commissioners recently have expressed concerns about the growing number of requests for county tax dollars from nonprofits and outside agencies, such as those running medical clinics and sub-stance abuse facilities. The commission also recently adopted a policy in which agencies that want county funds have to comply with extensive county rules and guidelines Â„ including providing an audit. AIR TEMPFrom Page A1begins to kick in, ÂexcitedÂŽ isnÂt the word Cantore would use. His relationship with severe weather Â„ particularly hurricanes, floods and tornadoes Â„is complicated. ItÂs hard to reconcile the thrill and adrenaline of standing out in a storm, wind and rain lashing, the pure energy and force of nature put on full display, with the fear, misery and pain left in the aftermath. He prefers blizzards, he said, because typically people donÂt die.ÂIn terms of the jack I get standing out in the stuff, sure, it still gives me a little jolt,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂve definitely seen enough destruction for a lifetime; thatÂs for sure.ÂŽWith as many storms as he has covered and personally experienced, Cantore still can pick out the moments that have stayed with him Â„ like when he was in Fort Walton Beach covering Hurricane Ivan, and the whole building he was in started shaking and swaying.And then there was Hurricane Katrina. Cantore still remembers waking up, checking the radar and seeing the ÂCat. 5 monsterÂŽ the storm had morphed into as it hit the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.ÂI almost puked,ÂŽ he recalled. ÂI thought, ÂPeople are going to die.Â ÂŽArmed with that knowl-edge, Cantore traveled to the Gulf, where the weather was clear, the sand was white and people were on vacation. One of his biggest chal-lenges, he said, is finding the right way to set the tone for whatÂs about to happen and convey the seriousness of it. He still remembers seeing the 30-foot storm surge, entire buildings in the street. Last year, he was in Texas during Hurricane Harvey. During Irma, he was in Fort Myers, where, despite the damage and power outages left behind in South and Central Flor-ida, he believes the state got off lucky.ÂPeople donÂt realize just how lucky,ÂŽ he said. ÂPretty much the entire west coast of Florida, even Atlanta, really dodged a bullet there.ÂŽBut even with all the devastation and the days itÂs hard to get up in the morning, Cantore hasnÂt considered hanging up his rain jacket and calling it quits, instead continuing to Âsuck it upÂŽ and head out into the storm to take a beating.ÂI have a sense of duty,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou canÂt just quit.ÂŽWhile the coast was spared this weekÂs low pressure system, thereÂs always a possi bility he will be back. The next big storm could hit any-where, he said. ThereÂs always a chance. CANTOREFrom Page A1

** A6 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Lisa Mascaro and Deb RiechmannThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald TrumpÂs CIA nominee appeared to be on a path toward confirmation as she picked up support from key Democrats Tuesday and toughened her public stance against harsh interrogation.ÂWith the benefit of hindsight and my expe-rience as a senior agency leader, the enhanced interrogation program is not one the CIA should have undertaken,ÂŽ Gina Haspel said in written answers to more than 60 questions released by the Senate intelligence committee.Haspel, who was involved in supervising a secret CIA detention site in Thailand, wrote that she had learned Âhard lessons since 9/11.ÂŽ In comments aimed at clarifying her position on now-banned torture techniques, Haspel said that she would Ârefuse to undertake any proposed activity that is contrary to my moral and ethical values.ÂŽÂI do not support use of enhanced interrogation techniques for any purpose,ÂŽ Haspel wrote.The Senate intelligence committee is expected to vote Wednesday to recommend that the full Senate confirm her.Confirmation by the full Senate appeared likely as five Democrats Â„ Mark Warner of Virginia, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelley of Indiana, Bill Nelson of Florida and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota Â„ announced their support. The only Senate Republicans who are not expected to vote for her are KentuckyÂs Rand Paul and ArizonaÂs John McCain, who is bat-tling cancer.In announcing his sup-port Tuesday, Warner, the top Democrat on the intelligence commit-tee, said Haspel has been Âprofessional and forth-rightÂŽ with the panel. ÂMost importantly, I believe she is someone who can and will stand up to the president if ordered to do something illegal or immoral Â„ like a return to torture,ÂŽ Warner said.Haspel testified at a Senate hearing that torture does not work as an interrogation technique and that, as director, her strong Âmoral compassÂŽ would ensure she did not carry out any administra-tive directive she found objectionable. Her writ-ten answers to questions went further to underscore her opposition to any attempt to reinstate harsh interrogation of suspects.McCain, who was beaten as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War, has urged colleagues to reject the nominee over her past role in CIA interrogations. After the hearing, McCain issued a statement calling Haspel a patriot for her three decades of service to the CIA. Still, McCain said her role Âin overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing. Her refusal to acknowl-edge tortureÂs immorality is disqualifying.ÂŽIn announcing her sup-port, Heitkamp said it was not an easy decision.ÂMs. HaspelÂs involve-ment in torture is deeply troubling, as my friend and colleague, John McCain, so eloquently reminded us,ÂŽ Heitkamp said. ÂHowever, Ms. Haspel explained to me that the agency should not have employed such tactics in the past and has assured me that it will not do so in the future.ÂŽHaspelÂs nominee has sparked a fresh debate over brutal interrogation practices.Trump himself has said the country should con-sider resuming the use of harsh interrogation tech-niques. And former Vice President Dick Cheney, who was integral to the post-Sept. 11, 2001, strategy, said last week if it were up to him, ÂIÂd do it again.ÂŽCIA nominee toughens interrogation stanceIn this May 9 photo, CIA nominee Gina Haspel testiÂ“ es during a conÂ“ rmation hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Capitol Hill in Washington. [PABLO MARTINEZ MONSIVAIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Jonathan J. Cooper and Janie HarThe Associated PressFAIRFIELD, Calif. Â„ A Northern California woman denied that she or her husband abused their 10 children after authorities said the kids suffered puncture wounds, burns, bruising and injuries con-sistent with being shot with a pellet gun.The children, ages 4 months to 12 years, were removed from their home March 31 after Ina Rogers contacted authorities to report that her oldest child was missing, police said Monday.Officers went to the home in Fairfield 46 miles (74 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco and found filthy conditions, Lt. Greg Hurlbut said.ÂOfficers located unsafe and unsanitary living con-ditions including garbage and spoiled food on the floor, animal and human feces and a large amount of debris making areas of the house unpassable,ÂŽ he said.Authorities said some of the injuries to the children appeared to have been caused by someone shoot-ing a pellet gun.The father, 29-yearold Jonathan Allen, was arrested Friday after the children were interviewed. He has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of torture and nine counts of felony child abuse and was being held on $5.2 million bail.The children did not require medical attention when they were removed. Stories about the alleged abuse came out gradually over the past six weeks and eight of the children told professionals about incidents dating back several years, authorities said.Sharon Henry, chief deputy district attorney for Solano County, said she was ÂhorrifiedÂŽ by the the childrenÂs statements and that torture was carried out in the house Âfor sadistic purposes.ÂŽ She declined to elaborate.ÂIt literally breaks your heart, and youÂre outraged by how a parent or anyone could commit those acts,ÂŽ Henry said.Rogers, 30, was arrested on suspicion of neglect last month and released after posting $10,000 bail.She denied Monday her husband had abused the children.ÂThereÂs no broken bones, there is no major scars, nothing,ÂŽ Rogers told reporters in front of her house. ÂMy kids get bumped and bruised and scratched because theyÂre kids but thatÂs it.ÂŽRogers gave journalists a tour of the house, a four-bedroom home with scuffed walls and animal feces in the bathroom.Rogers said the chil-dren slept in one bedroom because they were close and that cots were stored in a bedroom closet. The homeÂs other rooms were used as a master bedroom, playroom and meditation room.On the day the children were removed, the house was messy because she had just torn it apart look-ing for her missing son, who was angry because his parents had taken away his tablet computer, Rogers said. Rogers said she feels the family is being judged for having so many children and choosing to home-school them.She and her husband both came from broken homes and they wanted a large family, Rogers said.Child protection officials made one prior visit to the home several years ago, Rogers said. She did not say why.Rogers said she works the graveyard shift as an EKG technician at a heart monitoring company and her husband is a tattoo artist.Aleida Quartman, 23, who described herself as RogersÂ co-worker, said the mother spoiled her children.10 kids taken from home; mom and dad deny tortureThe home of Ina Rogers and her husband, Jonathan Allen, is seen Monday in FairÂ“ eld, Calif.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 A7By Josh LedermanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ The United States escalated its financial pressure on Iran Tuesday by slapping terror sanctions on the head of its central bank and barring anyone around the world from doing business with him, underscoring President Donald TrumpÂs hard line after his withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear accord upset European allies.Valiollah Seif, the governor of the Iranian central bank, was named a Âspecially designated global terroristÂŽ along with another senior official, Ali Tarzali, who works in the central bankÂs international division. The Treasury Department accused the men of secretly funneling millions of dollars through an Iraqi bank to help Hezbollah, the mili-tant network that the U.S. considers a terrorist group.Although the sanctions do not technically extend to the central bank itself, they could significantly increase IranÂs isolation from the global financial system. Seif, whose role is equivalent to the Fed-eral Reserve chairman in the U.S., oversees major financial decisions in Iran. Any transactions that involve his signature could potentially run afoul of the sanctions, creating a strong deterrent to foreign governments or businesses considering transactions involving IranÂs central bank.ÂThe United States will not permit IranÂs increasingly brazen abuse of the interna-tional financial system,ÂŽ Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said. ÂThe global community must remain vigilant against IranÂs deceptive efforts to provide financial support to its terrorist proxies.ÂŽThe moves come as TrumpÂs administration, after deeming the 2015 nuclear deal insufficiently tough on Iran, seeks to construct a global coalition to place enough pressure on Tehran that it comes back to the negotiating table to strike a Âbetter deal.ÂŽ The sanctions targeting IranÂs central bank executives are some of the first actions by TrumpÂs administration since pulling out of the deal to start ramping up that economic pressure.Head of Iran bank hit with terror sanctionsIn this 2017 photo, IranÂs Central Bank Governor, Valiollah Seif, left, sits in an open session of parliament, in Tehran, Iran.

[ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Jill Colvin and Darlene SupervilleThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump paid emotional tribute Tuesday to fallen law enforcement officers and the loved ones who carry on without them, saying those who wore the uniform Âwere among the bravest Americans to ever live.ÂŽÂThey made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could live in safety and in peace,ÂŽ Trump said.Trump, who likes to project an image of strength and has been criticized for failing to bring the nation together at times of tragedy, made a rare showing of public empathy as he shared the stories of some of the fam-ilies gathered in the crowd.Near the end of his speech, he invited onstage the elderly mother and other loved ones of a slain police officer from his native New York City. Officer Miosotis Familia, a mother of three, was killed in July 2017 after being shot in the head by a man who fired into a parked police vehicle in the Bronx. The gunman was later fatally shot by police.ÂIÂd like to have this family,ÂŽ he said, as he urged them to join him.Trump joked that he had promised not to reveal the age of FamiliaÂs mother, Adrianna Valoy, but that she climbed the stairs better than he did. Trump turns 72 next month.ÂSo I promised that I wouldnÂt tell you that sheÂs 90 years old, but, you know what, she is really something, right?ÂŽ he told the audience. ÂYou look like 55 maybe, 55. Boy, IÂll tell you what. You got up those stairs better than I did.ÂŽAfter inviting FamiliaÂs police partner to say a few words, Trump told her children how proud their mother was of them.ÂSheÂs looking down, and sheÂs so proud of you. SheÂs so proud of you. And you are great,ÂŽ Trump said. ÂYour momÂs legacy will never, ever die. You have good genes. Right? Good genes. The best genes IÂve ever seen.ÂŽThe president, who made law and order a cen-terpiece of his presidential campaign, also used the yearly tribute at an outdoor memorial near the Capitol to press Congress to prioritize border secu-rity. He said that includes ending policies that allow individuals he described as Âviolent criminalsÂŽ back onto the streets.Trump issued the plea after speaking about Border Patrol agent Rogelio Martinez, who died last year from injuries suffered while he and his partner were responding to reports of unknown activity near a border town southeast of El Paso, Texas.Trump said governmentÂs first duty is to protect its people and that the Department of Homeland Security, which includes the Border Patrol agency, is Âon the front lines of this incredible, heroic fight.ÂŽÂThat is why we are calling on Congress to secure our borders, support our border agents, stop sanctuary cities and shut down policies that release violent criminals back into our communities,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe donÂt want it any longer. WeÂve had it. Enough is enough.ÂŽTrump pays tribute to fallen o cersPresident Donald Trump points to the sky Tuesday as he talks to the family of slain New York Police Detective Miosotis Familia during the 37th annual National Peace OfÂ“ cers Memorial Service on Capitol Hill in Washington.

** A8 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Thomas BeaumontThe Associated PressTuesdayÂs primary elec-tions will begin to settle swing state Pennsylva-niaÂs chaotic congressional landscape after a court fight ended with redrawn districts just three months ago.Pennsylvania primary voters will also decide the fate of President Donald TrumpÂs pick for U.S. Senate. Idaho voters are set to pick their Republi-can gubernatorial nominee, while heavily Republican Nebraska and Democratic-leaning Oregon are also holding primaries Tuesday.A look at some of the key races: Pennsylvania scrambleRepublicans outnumber Democrats in PennsylvaniaÂs House delegation, though a new congressio-nal map is making the state a focal point of DemocratsÂ effort to reclaim House control in November.Eighty-four candidates are running in 18 House districts in light of new court-ordered redrawn congressional district maps in February. ThatÂs more than any time since 1984, when Pennsylvania had 23 seats in the House.Five of PennsylvaniaÂs 13 GOP House members have quit or are not run-ning again, helping create seven House vacancies, the most in Pennsylvania since 1976.Moderate Charlie Dent is abandoning PennsylvaniaÂs new 7th District, where Hillary Clinton received more votes than Trump, who carried Penn-sylvania. Six Democrats are running in this district, which reunified Demo-cratic-leaning cities in the east and cut out some of Republican-leaning cen-tral Pennsylvania.Ten Democrats are running in suburban PhiladelphiaÂs 5th District, where Rep. Patrick Meehan resigned last month amid allegations he sexually harassed a former employee and where Clin-ton also beat Trump. Barletta, TrumpÂs pick for senateRep. Lou Barletta is hoping TrumpÂs recent run of successful election suggestions continues in the Pennsylvania Repub-lican Senate primary.Barletta is heavily favored over state Rep. Jim Christiana to become the Republican challenger for Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, who is seeking a third term in November.Barletta was a Trump supporter before the 2016 presidential nomination was settled. The loyalty won Barletta TrumpÂs early support in the Senate race, as well as recorded telephone calls last week-end featuring the president backing Barletta Âfully, strongly and proudly.ÂŽLast week, Trump urged GOP Senate primary voters to support Rep. Jim Renacci in the Ohio Senate and oppose former coal company executive Don Blankenship in West Virginia. Renacci won and Blankenship lost.Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia are all seen as key to the 2018 Senate election landscape as states where Trump won in 2016 and Democratic senators are seeking re-election this year. First for Nebraska democratsDemocrats seldom have the luxury of choice in Nebraska, where Repub-licans have dominated for 80 years. But, for the first time, Omaha-area Demo-crats have options for the stateÂs lone urban House district.TuesdayÂs Democratic primary in NebraskaÂs 2nd Congressional District, dominated by Omaha and its suburbs, features moderate former Rep. Brad Ashford fighting for his old seat and Kara Eastman, a childrenÂs nonprofit administrator, running to AshfordÂs left.Ashford, a former Republican, served one term in Congress as a Democrat before Repub-lican Don Bacon beat him for re-election in 2016. Ashford, 69, has the endorsement of the Democratic establishment, including the Democratic Congressio-nal Campaign Committee, and is portraying himself as the one who can win in a swing-voting district in November.Voters cast ballots in 4 statesBy Lisa Mascaro and Anne FlahertyThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump appeared to be in a good mood Tuesday when he met privately with Senate Republicans, buoyed by primary election results and talks with North Korea, and bypassing any serious discussion of high-profile trouble spots in the administration.Senators did not ask about a White House aideÂs crass remark of ailing GOP Sen. John McCain. They did not bring up special counsel Robert MuellerÂs probe into Russian election interference.Instead, Trump joked and dropped one-liners during lunch, poking fun at senators of both parties in a wide-ranging 45-minute talk about the GOP tax cuts, the Iran nuclear deal and his upbeat assessment of the midterm election. He told them he so enjoyed West Virginia, where Republicans escaped an embarrassing primary setback last week, that he might move there after his time in the White House. He took a couple of questions.But the SenateÂs top Republican, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, told reporters afterward that the White House official who disparaged McCain Âshould apolo-gize and should apologize publicly.ÂŽTrumpÂs Capitol Hill lunch Tuesday with Senate Republicans comes as the White House and its GOP allies are trying to coalesce around a political message ahead of the midterm elections.But much like when Trump was headed to the GOP Senate lunch to talk policy in October 2017, the White House agenda was eclipsed by another story.During a closed-door meeting last week, White House communi-cations aide Kelly Sadler dismissed McCainÂs opposition to CIA nominee Gina Haspel by saying of the Arizona Republican: ÂHeÂs dying anyway.ÂŽ The 81-year-old McCain was diagnosed in July with glioblastoma, an aggres-sive form of brain cancer.Sadler has apologized to the McCain family privately, but McCainÂs daughter has asked for a public apology. Several GOP senators have also said the administration should apologize. But the White House, which has appeared more focused on the leak of the McCain comment instead of its substance, has said it has dealt with the matter internally Â„ but has refused to say how.Senators did not press the issue. ÂThatÂs not what we do in these meet-ings,ÂŽ Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told reporters. ÂNo one would have ever brought up something like that.ÂŽIt was familiar terrain. Last fall, Trump was feuding with Corker when he arrived for lunch having tweeted that the powerful chairman of the Foreign Relations panel couldnÂt get elected dog catcher. Corker has decided not to seek re-election.Senators appear to have long given up on trying to change Trump and are increasingly relying on the president to help pro-tect the GOPÂs slim 51-49 majority in the Senate this fall.GOP senators lunch with Trump, donÂt bring up McCain remarkPresident Donald Trump walks with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., left, to a closed-door meeting with Senate Republicans on Tuesday at the Capitol in Washington.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 A9 BUSINESSThe Associated PressLosses in technology and health care companies helped pull U.S. stocks lower Tuesday, snapping an eight-day winning streak by the Dow Jones industrial average. The broad sell-off fol-lowed a slide in bond prices, which sent the 10-year Treasury yield to its highest level in almost seven years. That paves the way for higher borrowing costs on mortgages and other loans. The prospect of higher mortgage interest rates weighed on homebuilders, while the rise in bond yields sent shares in high-dividend paying stocks lower.ÂWeÂre of the view that weÂre not in a high-rate environment, weÂre in a less-low rate environment,ÂŽ said Erik Davidson, chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Private Bank. ÂSo weÂre not too concerned at these levels, but thatÂs definitely driving the market today.ÂŽThe S&P 500 index fell 18.68 points, or 0.7 percent, to 2,711.45.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks finished flat at 1,600.34.The market slide comes in the midst of a strong May for stocks.

Sanden International (USA) of Wylie, Texas, warns it will have to lay off 39 of its 431 workers if 25 percent tariffs take effect on the components it uses to make car air-conditioning compressors. SABIC, a petrochemical manufacturer, wants some building materials struck from the tariff list.As the U.S. government began three days of hear-ings on the tariffs Tuesday, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He traveled to Washington to seek a resolution to the trade dispute. A similar high-level U.S. delegation made a trip to Beijing ear-lier this month and returned empty-handed.Trump had raised hopes for the latest talks by striking a surprisingly con-ciliatory tone toward China, which he has long accused of predatory business practices that robbed American jobs and swelled WashingtonÂs trade deficit with Beijing. Trump offered a lifeline to ZTE, a Chinese telecom company that is fighting for survival after being hit with sanctions this month by the U.S. Commerce DepartmentTrump tweeted Sunday that he was working with President Xi Jinping to put ZTE Âback in business, fastÂŽ and save tens of thousands of Chinese jobs Â„ a stance that drew an immediate outcry from many Repub-licans and Democrats alike.Trump had campaigned for the presidency on a vow to strike a much tougher trade stance than his recent predecessors, who, he argued, had agreed to deals that gave an unfair advantage to AmericaÂs competitors. The presi-dent has pointed to the U.S. trade deficit ($566 billion last year) as a sign of economic weakness caused by disastrous agreements and abusive behavior by China and other countries.He has proposed tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese imports to punish Beijing for forcing American compa-nies to hand over technology in exchange for access to ChinaÂs vast market. China fired back by targeting $50 billion in American prod-ucts, including soybeans and small aircraft, for potential retaliatory tariffs. Trump then ordered the U.S. trade representative to look for an additional $100 billion in Chinese goods to tax.Looking for reliefMARKET WATCHDow 24,706.41 193.00 Nasdaq 7.351.63 59.69 S&P 2,711.34 18.68 Russell 1,600.34 Unchgd.

Facebook said automated tools detected 86 percent to 99.5 percent of the violations in those categories.For hate speech, FacebookÂs human reviewers and computer algorithms identified just 38 percent of the violations. The rest came after Facebook users flagged the offending content for review.TuesdayÂs report was FacebookÂs first breakdown of how much material it removes for violating its policies. The statistics cover a relatively short period, from October 2017 through March of this year, and donÂt disclose how long, on average, it takes Facebook to remove material violat-ing its standards. The report also doesnÂt cover how much inappropriate content Face-book missed.Facebook acknowledges itÂs better at policing nudity than hate speech ÂThereÂs no free ride in this carnival world.ÂŽÂCarnival WorldÂŽ as performed by Jimmy BuffettRemember when we used to be concerned about the national debt? Back then folks were only arguing about singledigit trillions. The current amount? You donÂt want to know. OK. ItÂs more than $21 trillion. And counting. ItÂs scary. If you donÂt believe me, go to usdebtclock.org and watch how fast we add $100,000 to the national debt. It happens in less time than itÂs taken you to read this far. Seriously. Some economists say that this level of debt, fueled by annual large deficits, isnÂt all bad. A government with a fiat currency (one where it can always print money and inject it into the economy) does not necessarily need to balance its annual budget in the way you and I do in our personal households. For us to have money, we must generate it through jobs, investments or the sale of businesses or real estate. The government can just crank up the printer. So granted, comparing congressional spending to our household spending is like comparing apples to oranges. The reason a stable country like the United States can borrow money so easily is because, in some form or other, we can always repay what we owe. If we really wanted to, we could simply print enough money to pay off all our debt tomorrow. But we choose to carry the debt instead, because printing that much money would devalue our currency significantly and likely leading to hyperinflation. So until the United States simply canÂt pay off its debt without having to run our money printing machines overtime, we should be able to borrow money at relatively low rates for the foreseeable future. But there certainly must reach a point where a countryÂs debt starts to look suspect, right? Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff, national debt experts, cite 90 percent debt-to-GDP as the level at which debt starts to erode growth. WeÂve recently passed that mark. Even so, some are not overly concerned about the national debt. At every new trillion dollar mark people were lamenting the end of the republic under the crushing debt load. Japan is the most indebted developed economy in the world, yet borrows at rates lower than we do. We doubled the debt during the Great Recession while attempting to revive the economy. During that crisis, practical choices regarding adding to the debt were few and far between. Interest payments, though, are a concern. In 10 years, interest on the national debt is expected to reach almost a trillion dollars annually. That would make it almost 15 percent of the federal budget. Anyone who has ever paid off a large credit card debt will tell you, thatÂs an untenable situation. Margaret R.

And a few minor hiccups notwithstanding, the stock market continues to tick up, enriching those who have the money to invest. Meanwhile, new home sales surged across the country in March, finishing off a strong first quarter of the year with what appears to be an increasing buyer demand. According to a report a few weeks ago in The Wall Street Journal, sales of new single-family homes increased 4 percent in March compared with the previous month and 8.8 percent compared with March 2017. Indeed, most key economic indicators were up in March, according to the Department of Commerce. The economy appears to be rolling along. So why doesnÂt it feel like it to the average American? If you read past the headlines and dig a little deeper, the answer isnÂt hard to figure out. The rich are getting much richer, the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is getting squeezed. One of the reasons new home sales are increasing Âis that millennials are reaching the point in their lives when theyÂre beginning to get married, start a family and are looking to buy a home,ÂŽ Mark Vitner, senior economist at Wells Fargo, told The Wall Street Journal. But most of those same millennials attempting to follow their parentsÂ path to Âthe American DreamÂŽ are doing so saddled with crippling debt from student loans. In a study last year of its top 300 public and private national universities, U.S. News & World Report found that, over the past 20 years, average tuition and fees have jumped 157 percent at private universities, 194 percent at public universities and, hereÂs the real whopper, 237 percent for in-state students at public universities. Meanwhile, anyone who has been forced into unemployment knows the chances of maintaining their lifestyle after being laid off are next to nil. The average worker has seen wages stay stagnant or fall over the past decade. People might be better able to find a job, but theyÂre likely looking at some hard lifestyle choices in the process. At the same time, the costs of basic necessities, such as transportation and food, have increased significantly. It is depressing. New data released by Blue Cross Blue Shield show diagnoses of major depression have risen sharply. The report, released Thursday, finds more than 9 million commercially insured people in the U.S. suffer from major, or clinical, depression, an increase of 33 percent since 2013. WeÂre in a strange point in history. The disruption brought on by rapid technological advancements, social media and unadulterated greed on Wall Street is unprecedented. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.Why doesnÂt it feel like economy is improving?In the world of government policy, two chief dangers always loom. The first is people with bad intentions using every available means to achieve their malignant goals. The second, more common but no less destructive, is people with the purest of hearts and the most boneheaded of methods. For an example of the latter, look west, where the California Energy Commission just decreed that starting in 2020, new homes must be equipped with solar panels. Commissioner Andrew McAllister boasted the rule Âwill propel the state even further down the road to a low emissions future.ÂŽ He has the right idea. With environmental vandals in charge of the federal government, the stateÂs leaders are justifiably motivated to do what they can to combat climate change. ÂWe donÂt want to do nothing and just sit there and let the climate get worse,ÂŽ Gov. Jerry Brown said last year. California is at particular risk from global warming, which will inundate low-lying areas of its 840-mile coastline with rising salt water while fostering more droughts and wildfires inland. Its utilities are already on track to get half their energy from solar and other renewable sources as soon as 2020. The state also is fighting the Environmental Protection AgencyÂs plan to gut controls on vehicle tailpipe emissions. The energy commission says the solar panels and other requirements will cut a typical new homeÂs energy consumption by 53 percent Â„ Âequivalent to taking 115,000 fossil fuel cars off the road.ÂŽ But there are three major flaws in this approach. The first is that itÂs a highly inefficient way to expand solar energy. University of California-Berkeley economist Severin Borenstein told the commission he and the vast majority of energy economists Âbelieve that residential rooftop solar is a much more expensive way to move toward renewable energy than larger solar and wind installations.ÂŽ No kidding. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory figures that on a kilowatt-hour basis, electricity from home solar panels costs 2times more than electricity from large solar facilities operated by utilities. Another drawback is that it will aggravate the stateÂs most notorious problem Â„ astronomical housing costs. The median home price is now $524,000, in large part because of regulations that make every attempt to put up new housing only slightly less challenging than the Normandy invasion. California has fewer residential units per person than 48 other states. ItÂs a major reason more people are leaving the state than coming. The new mandate will be another burden on new home construction and purchase because it is expected to add $10,000 or more to the cost. Not a big bump, percentage-wise, but enough to make a difference Â„ particularly at the lower end of the market, where the people least able to cope are found. And the claim that the solar gear will more than pay for itself over the life of a mortgage will be cold comfort to those who canÂt qualify for the mortgage. ItÂs another bundle of straw on a camel that already is staggering under its load. The state government might as well ask developers and contractors, ÂWhat part of Âget lostÂ do you not understand?ÂŽ Environmentalists in California and beyond have good cause to fear and resist the powerful enemies now in charge of federal policy, but they should also guard against the folly of their friends. Steve Chapman is a member of the Chicago Tribune editorial board and a columnist with Creators Syndicate.CaliforniaÂs boneheaded solar remedy for climate change S t e p h e n C h a p m a n Stephen Chapman Who failed who at Patterson? Great article on Patterson Sunday, May 6. it proved the School Board did not do their job. All through the article it told how great the School Board is till it came to hope denied. It went on to say ÂnoÂŽ is not an option. But when it came to the one option that could have help Patterson, they were told Âno.ÂŽ Who said the grant had to come from HB7000? The School Board could have paid for it. Anytime any school does not achieve a ÂC,ÂŽ the School Board has failed and it is time to replace them. The School Board wants us to believe the students failed or the teachers failed anybody but them.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 A11By Hillel ItalieThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ Tom Wolfe, the white-suited wizard of ÂNew JournalismÂŽ who exuberantly chronicled American culture from the Merry Pranksters through the space race before turning his satiric wit to such novels as ÂThe Bonfire of the VanitiesÂŽ and ÂA Man in Full,ÂŽ has died. He was 88.WolfeÂs literary agent, Lynn Nesbit, told The Associated Press that he died of an infection Monday in a New York City hospital. Further details were not immedi-ately available.An acolyte of French novelist Emile Zola and other authors of ÂrealisticÂŽ fiction, the stylishly-attired Wolfe was an American maverick who insisted that the only way to tell a great story was to go out and report it. Along with Gay Talese, Truman Capote and Nora Ephron, he helped demonstrate that journalism could offer the kinds of literary pleasure found in books.His hyperbolic, stylized writing work was a gleeful fusillade of exclamation points, italics and improb-able words. An ingenious phrase maker, he helped brand such expressions as Âradical chicÂŽ for rich liberalsÂ fascination with revolutionaries; and the ÂMeÂŽ generation, defin-ing the self-absorbed baby boomers of the 1970s.ÂHe was an incredible writer,ÂŽ Talese told the AP on Tuesday. ÂAnd you couldnÂt imitate him. When people tried it was a disaster. They should have gotten a job at a butcherÂs shop.ÂŽWolfe was both a liter-ary upstart, sneering at the perceived stuffiness of the publishing establishment, and an old-school gentle-man who went to the best schools and encouraged Michael Lewis and other younger writers. When attending promotional luncheons with fellow authors, he would make a point of reading their latest work.ÂWhat I hope people know about him is that he was a sweet and generous man,ÂŽ Lewis, known for such books as ÂMoney-ballÂŽ and ÂThe Big Short,ÂŽ told the AP in an email Tuesday. ÂNot just a great writer but a great soul. He didnÂt just help me to become a writer. He did it with pleasure.ÂŽWolfe scorned the reluctance of American writers to confront social issues and warned that self-absorption and mas-terÂs programs would kill the novel. ÂSo the doors close and the walls go up!ÂŽ he wrote in his 1989 liter-ary manifesto, ÂStalking the Billion-Footed Beast.ÂŽ He was astonished that no author of his generation had written a sweeping, 19th century style novel about contemporary New York City, and ended up writing one himself, ÂThe Bonfire of the Vanities.ÂŽHis work broke count-less rules but was grounded in old-school journalism, in an obsessive attention to detail that began with his first reporting job and endured for decades.ÂNothing fuels the imagination more than real facts do,ÂŽ Wolfe told the AP in 1999. ÂAs the saying goes, ÂYou canÂt make this stuff up.ÂÂŽWolfeÂs interests were vast, but his narratives had a common theme. Whether sending up the New York art world or hanging out with acid heads, Wolfe inevitably presented man as a status-seeking animal, concerned above all about the opinion of oneÂs peers. Wolfe him-self dressed for company Â„ his trademark a pale three-piece suit, impossibly high shirt collar, two-tone shoes and a silk tie. And he acknowledged that he cared Â„ very much Â„ about his reputation.ÂMy contention is that status is on everybodyÂs mind all of the time, whether theyÂre conscious of it or not,ÂŽ Wolfe, who lived in a 12-room apartment on ManhattanÂs Upper East Side, told the AP in 2012.In 1978, Wolfe married Sheila Berger, art direc-tor of HarperÂs magazine. They had two children, Alexandra and Tommy.He enjoyed the highest commercial and critical rewards. His liter-ary honors included the American Book Award (now called the National Book Award) for ÂThe Right StuffÂŽ and a nomination for the National Book Critics Circle prize for ÂThe Bonfire of the Vanities,ÂŽ one of the top 10 selling books of the 1980s. Its 1998 followup, ÂA Man in Full,ÂŽ was another best-seller and a National Book Award nominee. Wolfe satirized college misbehavior in ÂI Am Charlotte SimmonsÂŽ and was still at it in his 80s with ÂBack to Blood,ÂŽ a sprawling, multicultural story of sex and honor set in Miami.A panel of judges organized in 1999 by the Modern Library, a Random House imprint, picked ÂThe Right StuffÂŽ as No. 52 on its list of the centuryÂs 100 best English-language works of nonfiction. Another panel of experts, listing the best journalism of the century, cited Wolfe three times on its list of 100, for ÂThe Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,ÂŽ ÂÂThe Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Stream-line BabyÂŽ and ÂThe Right Stuff.ÂŽWolfe, the grandson of a Confederate rifleman, began his journalism career as a reporter at the Springfield (Massachusetts) Union in 1957. But it wasnÂt until the mid1960s, while a magazine writer for New York and Esquire, that his work made him a national trendsetter. As Wolfe helped define it, the Ânew journalismÂŽ combined the emotional impact of a novel, the analysis of the best essays, and the factual foundation of hard report-ing. He mingled it all in an over-the-top style that made life itself seem like one spectacular headline.ÂShe is gorgeous in the most outrageous way,ÂŽ he wrote in a typical piece, describing actress-social-ite Baby Jane Holzer.ÂHer hair rises up from her head in a huge hairy corona, a huge tan mane around a narrow face and two eyes opened Â„ swock! Â„ like umbrellas, with all that hair flowing down over a coat made of ... zebra! Those motherless stripes!ÂŽWolfe traveled during the Â60s with Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters for his book on the psychedelic culture, ÂThe Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.ÂŽ One of his bestknown magazine pieces, ÂRadical Chic: That Party at LennyÂs,ÂŽ took a pointed look at fund-raising for the Black Panther Party by Leonard Bernstein and other wealthy whites. And no one more memorably captured the beauty-and-the-beast divide between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones: ÂThe Beatles want to hold your hand,ÂŽ he wrote, Âbut the Rolling Stones want to burn down your town!ÂŽWolfe had many detrac-tors Â„ including fellow writers Norman Mailer and John Updike and the critic James Wood, who panned WolfeÂs Âbig sub-jects, big people, and yards of flapping exaggeration. No one of average size emerges from his shop; in fact, no real human variety can be found in his fiction, because everyone has the same enormous excitability.ÂŽBut his fans included millions of book-buyers, literary critics and fellow authors.ÂHe knows everything,ÂŽ novelist Kurt Vonnegut once wrote of Wolfe. Â... I wish he had headed the Warren Commission. We might then have caught a glimpse of our nation.ÂŽThomas Kennerly Wolfe Jr. was born in Richmond, Virginia. As a child, he did rewrites of the Authurian legends and penned biographies of his heroes. He became co-editor of his high school newspaper before moving on to Washington and Lee University, where he graduated with honors and was remembered by fellow student, the novelist Tom Robbins, as holding the very highest status: the big man on campus.Wolfe had an unsuccessful pitching tryout with the New York Giants before heading to Yale University, from which he earned a Ph.D. in American studies. His career didnÂt immediately take off; Wolfe once took The Associated Press writing test and Âdismally failed,ÂŽ he later recounted, noting that he was faulted for embellishing the test material, a primal sin at the AP.But in 1957, he joined the Springfield paper and instantly fell in love with journalism. Two years later he jumped to The Washington Post, where he won Washington Newspaper Guild awards in 1960 for his coverage of U.S.-Cuban affairs and a satiric account of that yearÂs Senate civil rights filibuster.New York was his dream and by 1962 he was working at the now defunct New York Herald-Tribune, with colleagues including Jimmy Breslin and Charles Portis, who later wrote the novel ÂTrue Grit.ÂŽ The next year, Wolfe was assigned to cover a ÂHot Rod & Custom CarÂŽ show. He completed a story, the kind Âany of the somnambulis-tic totem newspapers in America would have come up with.ÂŽBut he knew there was a much richer, and longer story to tell, one about a thriving subculture that captured the post-World War II economic boom and the new freedom to Âbuild monumentsÂŽ to oneÂs own style. No newspaper could contain what Wolfe had in mind, so he turned to Esquire magazine, wrote up 49 pages and helped give birth to a new kind of reporter.ÂFor the who-whatwhere-when-why of traditional journalism, he has substituted what he calls Âthe wowie!ÂÂŽ accord-ing to a 1965 Newsweek story.That same year, his first book appeared: ÂThe Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Stream-line Baby,ÂŽ a collection of 23 Wolfe articles that included the title piece, his seminal work on custom cars. In 1968, another collection Â„ ÂThe Pump-House GangÂŽ Â„ appeared, as did his book on the Pranksters.Wolfe, pioneering ÂNew Journalist,Â dead at age 88President George W.

** A12 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Darlene SupervilleThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ President Donald Trump visited his wife, Melania, in the hospital Tuesday as she continues to recover after a kidney procedure.Trump said earlier Tuesday that the first lady is Âdoing really wellÂŽ and that he expected her back at the White House before the end of the week. He arrived by helicopter at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington on Tuesday afternoon and stayed for about 90 min-utes before returning to the White House. He also vis-ited Monday after doctors performed the Âemboliza-tionÂŽ procedure.ÂMelania is doing really well. SheÂs watching us right now,ÂŽ Trump said Tuesday as he spoke at an annual tribute to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.ÂAnd I want to thank the incredible doctors. ... They did a fantastic job,ÂŽ Trump added.At the Capitol later, where he joined Republican senators at their weekly lunch, Trump reiterated that his wife is Âreally doing well.ÂŽTrump had tweeted earlier Tuesday that his wife Âwill be leaving hos-pital in 2 or 3 days.ÂŽ Her spokeswoman had said in a statement Monday that the first lady was likely to remain hospitalized for Âthe duration of the week.ÂŽThe White House said the procedure was ÂsuccessfulÂŽ but withheld details of the first ladyÂs condition, citing her privacy.Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Mrs. TrumpÂs condition said the most likely explanation for the embolization procedure is a type of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma.TheyÂre not common but tend to occur in middle-aged women and can cause problematic bleeding if they become large enough, said Dr. Keith Kowalczyk of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Mrs. Trump is 48.The Âtreatment of choiceÂŽ is to cut off the blood supply to shrink the growth, said Dr. Lambros Stamatakis of MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Doctors do that with an embolization Â„ snaking a catheter into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it.Trump pays return visit to hospitalized rst ladyPresident Donald Trump walks to his motorcade vehicle as he arrives on Marine One at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday in Bethesda, Md. [CAROLYN KASTER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Michael BalsamoThe Associated PressLOS ANGELES Â„ Stormy Daniels has raised nearly a half-mil-lion dollars to fund her lawsuit against President Donald Trump, relying on contributions from a crowdfunding site. Her lawyer has repeatedly pointed to the public site as evidence that he and his client arenÂt bankrolled by TrumpÂs political foes.But the truth is, no one knows precisely who is funding the effort.The more than 14,000 donations have been made mostly anonymously in amounts ranging from $10 to $5,000. Through Monday, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, raised more than $490,000 on CrowdJustice.com, a crowdfunding site dedi-cated to helping people raise money for legal fees. A bout $100,000 arrived in the last week after Avenatti released documents about pay-ments TrumpÂs personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, received from private companies seeking information about the presidentÂs beliefs on various issues.The target for dona-tions is $850,000, which Avenatti called a Ârealis-tic and reasonable target based on what we know right now.ÂŽJessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School, said itÂs unusual but Ânot totally unheard ofÂŽ for a lawyer to seek online donations to cover legal costs. ÂIt does bring up some ethical concerns in terms of who is actually giving this money and whether they will try to exert influence,ÂŽ said Levin-son, who also is president of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission. Crowdjustice.com donors can choose whether to share their names with the person seeking funds. The site displays donations with either a first name or as anonymous donor. Kathleen Clark, a pro-fessor of ethics law at Washington University, echoed LevinsonÂs concern.The anonymous dona-tions can be Âfodder for public debate on who is actually backing this lawsuit,ÂŽ Clark said.ÂOf course when the third party is actually 14,000 different people it seems actually less of a danger than it would be in an ordinary case where a single third party would be paying,ÂŽ she said.Levinson said as long as Avenatti doesnÂt change his legal strategy because of the payments, there isnÂt an inherent ethical issue.ÂPeople can have par-tisan affiliations and I donÂt think anyone thought Michael Avenatti was a Trump supporter,ÂŽ Levinson said.Avenatti has bristled at claims from some Trump supporters that his pay for work on the case comes from an organized effort to oust Trump.ÂWe have no ethical concerns whatsoever,ÂŽ Avenatti told The Associated Press. ÂI find this fascination with who is paying my clientÂs legal bills to have passed the line of absurdity at this point. We have been very, very clear when answering these questions. Who is paying Mr. TrumpÂs and Mr. CohenÂs legal bills? Do we know?ÂŽDanielsÂ crowdfunding raises transparency questionsIn this April 16 photo, adult Â“ lm actress Stormy Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, talk to reporters outside federal court in New York City.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 A13By Barbara RodriguezThe Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Â„ Abortion-rights groups said Tuesday that they had filed a lawsuit challenging the nationÂs most restrictive abortion law, an Iowa provision that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, around the sixth week of pregnancy.Almost immediately, the stateÂs attorney gen-eral said he would not defend the law. Democrat Tom Miller said he based his decision on a belief that the measure Âwould undermine rights and protections for women.ÂŽThe lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America seeks an injunc-tion that would put the lawÂs July 1 implementa-tion on hold during the lawsuit, a legal process that could take years. An Iowa City clinic is also a plaintiff.ÂWeÂve moved quickly to challenge this cruel and reckless law because it cannot be allowed to take effect,ÂŽ Rita Bettis, legal director for the ACLU of Iowa, told a news conference.The lawsuit names Gov. Kim Reynolds and the Iowa Board of Medi-cine as defendants, Bettis said.Reynolds, who signed IowaÂs ban earlier this month, said at a public event in Davenport that she felt Âvery confident in moving forward with it.ÂŽRepublicans want any legal challenge to reach the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes of overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.The law is the latest to test the legality of abortion restrictions. GOP lawmakers in Mississippi earlier this year passed a 15-week abortion ban. It was signed by MississippiÂs Republican governor and quickly put on hold after a court challenge.The law is evidence of the stateÂs conservative shift after the 2016 election, when Republicans gained control of the Legislature and the governorÂs office for the first time in nearly 20 years. Last year, they approved a 20-week abortion ban and required women to wait three days before they could have an abortion. The waiting provision is on hold because of a separate lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.Iowa Republicans last year also gave up millions in federal dollars to create a state-funded family planning program that prohibits participation from abor-tion providers such as Planned Parenthood.NationÂs most restrictive abortion law challengedPlanned Parenthood of the Heartland President and CEO Suzanna de Baca speaks during a news conference Tuesday in Des Moines, Iowa. Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union said Tuesday that they had Â“ led a lawsuit challenging the nationÂs most restrictive abortion law, an Iowa provision that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, around the sixth week of pregnancy. [CHARLIE NEIBERGALL/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Mike CorderThe Associated PressAMSTERDAM Â„ Researchers using digital technology deciphered the writing on two pages of Anne FrankÂs diary that she had covered over with brown mask-ing paper, discovering four naughty jokes and a candid explanation of sex, contraception and prostitution.ÂAnyone who reads the passages that have now been discovered will be unable to suppress a smile,ÂŽ said Frank van Vree, director of the Netherlands Insti-tute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies. ÂThe ÂdirtyÂ jokes are classics among growing children. They make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all also an ordinary girl.ÂŽAnne, age 13 at the time, wrote the two pages on Sept. 28, 1942, less than three months after she, her family and another Jewish family went into hiding from the Nazis in a secret annex behind a canal-side house in Amsterdam.Later on, possibly fearing prying eyes or no longer liking what she had written, she covered them over with brown paper, and their content remained a tantalizing mystery for decades.It turns out the pages contained four jokes about sex that Anne herself described as ÂdirtyÂŽ and an explanation of womenÂs sexual development, sex, contraception and prostitution.ÂThey bring us even closer to the girl and the writer Anne Frank,ÂŽ Ronald Leopold, execu-tive director of the Anne Frank House museum, said Tuesday.Experts on AnneÂs multimillion-selling diary said the newly discovered text, when studied together with the rest of her journal, reveals more about her development as a writer than it does about her interest in sex.Anne wrote candidly in other parts of her diary about her burgeoning sexuality, her anatomy and her impending period. Those passages were censored by her father before the diary was first published in 1947 but became available in more recent unabridged editions.Leopold said the newly deciphered material provides an early exam-ple of how Anne Âcreates a fictional situation that makes it easier for her to address the sensitive topics that she writes about.ÂŽ In her diary, for example, she addressed entries to a fictional friend named Kitty.The institutions involved in the latest research said that because of copyright issues, it is unclear whether the passages will be incorporated into new editions.Dutch researchers uncover dirty jokes in Anne FrankÂs diary

It will be joined soon by another on the west side, part of continuing upgrades to the drawbridge.The six-light signal is replacing the bridgeÂs old two-light signals, which Panama City public informa-tion officer Caitlin Lawrence called Âancient.ÂŽÂThe original system became a public safety issue as the ongoing maintenance on the gate arms and lights continued to increase over time, so it was decided to upgrade the whole system,ÂŽ Lawrence wrote in an email to The News Herald. ÂThe city had two choices for warning flashers: a three-light system (red, green and amber) or the six-light system being installed now. The cost dif-ference was $750.ÂŽThe Florida Department of Transportation does not require a six-light system, but B&B Roadway, which isworking with the city on the bridge project,recom-mended the signal for added safety based on accidents that had occurred on other lift bridges.ÂSafety is always a main $10,000 lights next step in Tarpon Dock Bridge upgradesA new six-light trafÂ“ c signal has been erected as part of the upgrades to the Tarpon Dock Bridge in downtown Panama City.

ÂNot all of those are municipalities, or cities or counties. There are hos-pitals now getting into the litigation, other providers, charity care, that sort of thing, that are also becom-ing plaintiffs.ÂŽJudge Dan Aaron Polster of the Northern District of Ohio has been assigned the task of resolving the lawsuits brought by cities, counties and Native Ameri-can tribes against central figures in the national opioid crisis, including makers of the prescription painkillers, companies that distribute them and phar-macy chains that sell them.Higby said the judge Âis quite activeÂŽ and ÂengagedÂŽ in the case.ÂHe has a conscience,ÂŽ Higby said. ÂI can tell you heÂs made comments in hearings that the national media has picked up on including telling lawyers, ÂLadies and gentlemen, we have over 100 people a day dying from this epidemic.

** B4 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ A driver accused of being distracted when he swerved off the road and fatally struck a pedestrian has been denied a request for a lower bond in order to allow him more time to ÂstudyÂŽ his case.Dijivis Temes Paul, 23, appeared in court Thursday during a motion hearing for a bond reduction he filed himself. He has been in jail since Sept. 28 after a hitand-run crash that left a pedestrian, 35-year-old Trinidi L. Coalson of West Point, Georgia, with fatal injuries. Paul was charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a crash involving death and since has been held on a combined bond of $75,000, court records show.PaulÂs motion hearing Thursday centered on a request for a bond reduc-tion after he filed a motion to replace his public defender with a lawyer with Âadequate time, staff and resourcesÂŽ to pursue his case. ÂMy family is not finan-cially stable to pay the posted amount, and if I was to be released I would be able to return to work and also have better resources to be able to study for my case,ÂŽ Paul wrote. ÂI also havenÂt been in any trouble since 2009 and I recently completed felony probation.ÂŽCircuit Judge Michael Overstreet dismissed the request, however, saying Paul would have to go through his defense attorney for a bond reduction.The crash happened about 6:30 a.m. Sept. 28 in the 900 block of East Avenue in Panama City. The Panama City Police Department reported Coalson was walking on the shoulder of East Avenue when a car driving the opposite direction hit her.According to PCPD reports, Paul was the driver and was Âdistracted by something within the vehicleÂŽ at the time of the crash. PCPD Chief Scott Ervin said witnesses did not clarify the type of distraction, but officers reported it was sustained for some time.ÂThe distraction was such it caused (Paul) to drive several feet in the bicycle lane where a white female pedestrian was walking,ÂŽ officers wrote. Paul Âstruck the pedestrian with the vehicle he was in physical control of causing her death as a result.ÂŽPaul allegedly fled the scene but was followed by witnesses. About 10 blocks away, he was pulled over by police and taken into custody. Coalson was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead from her injuries.Paul has been tentatively scheduled for a jury trial June 18.Judge denies lower bond in vehicular homicideDefendant: Public defender lacks Âadequate time, resourcesÂ Paul By John KennedyGatehouse MediaTALLAHASSEE Â„ A U.S. Supreme Court ruling Monday that overturns a federal law banning most sports betting throws another wild card into the complicated world of Florida gambling.But with voters getting a chance in November to approve a constitutional amendment making any expansion of gambling subject to voter-approval means sports betting might not come to Florida anytime soon.ÂBut IÂm sure with this ruling, it will create some interest among the parimutuels, the (Seminole) Tribe and independent interests,ÂŽ said Sen. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, the incoming Senate president who has been point-man for his chamber on a host of gambling issues.The high court ruling, in a New Jersey case, is expected to spawn sports betting in a number of states looking to legalize and tax more gambling, at tracks, major hotels and other venues.In Florida, jai-alai fron-tons, horse tracks and dog tracks have been pressing state lawmakers for years to allow more slot machines at their facilities. Now, sports betting could become another piece of the negotiations, which always play out against the backdrop of the stateÂs gambling compact with the Seminole Tribe.ÂThis has big implications for Florida,ÂŽ said Nick Iarossi, whose lobbying clients include Jacksonville Greyhound Racing, Melbourne Grey-hound Park and Ocala BreedersÂ Sales Inc.ÂThis is one more reason for the state to do something long-lasting to improve the gaming industry, among myriad reasons already out there,ÂŽ he added.At the Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club, officials said MondayÂs ruling is pivotal.ÂItÂs probably the best possible scenario for states that want to engage in sports wagering,ÂŽ said Fred Guzman, president and general manager of both the Daytona Beach and Orange City racing and card clubs.ÂI think this goes a long way (toward) bringing an illegal activity into the light,ÂŽ he added.The Seminole Tribe pays the state $300 million a year for operating casinos on its seven reservations. If sports betting was approved, the deal with the tribe would have to be reworked, even as fed-eral law also would allow the tribe to offer sports betting.Galvano said there is no interest among lawmakers to do anything with sports betting before the November elections. John Sowinski, president of No Casinos Inc., the antigambling organization, said that makes sense, adding that voters should decide the matter.ÂAnything that makes this big a change to the landscape of gambling should be done by the voters,ÂŽ said Sowinski, who spearheaded the proposed November constitutional amendment, which needs to win approval from at least 60 percent of voters to become law.The wording of the Âvoter control of gamblingÂŽ Amendment 3 is focused mostly on casino gambling, but lawmakers, and lobbyists on both sides of the issue acknowledged sports bet-ting would be included in that term.While polls have shown the amendment polling at or above 70 percent sup-port among voters, some analysts said Monday that sports betting is generally less opposed. Opponents of the amendment said it would be wise to warn voters that it could slow the introduction of sports betting in Florida.ÂSports betting is a tourist amenity,ÂŽ said Marc Dunbar, a Tallahassee gambling lawyer and lobbyist. ÂFlorida will be left behind while other states have it.ÂŽ Daytona Beach NewsJournal staff writer T.S.

** B8 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Rachel SiegelThe Washington PostIssuing its largest fine to date, the Federal Com-munications Commission issued a $120 million fine on a massive robocall spoofing operation it deemed a threat to public safety.The FCC announced Thursday morning that it would leverage the fine against Adrian Abramov-ich, a Miami man who the commission said made almost 100 million spoofed robocalls over a three-month period at the end of 2016. The FCC argued that AbramovichÂs operation made the phony calls to trick consumers into answering and listening to his advertising messages. The fine was based on 80,000 spoofed calls the commission had verified.ÂWe take spoofing seriously at the FCC, and we will continue to do everything we can to confront the scourge of spoofed robocalls,ÂŽ FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a video message after the announcement.In a statement, Pai said Abramovich did not dis-pute that he placed more than 96 million robocalls, or that the robocalls were made without the recipi-entsÂ consent. Pai added that Abramovich did not dispute that inaccurate caller ID information appeared with each robo-call, making it look like the call was from a local number, a practice known as Âneighbor spoofing.ÂŽPai added that while Abramovich has said he had Âno intent ... to defraud, cause harm or wrongfully obtain anything of value,ÂŽ the commission was not convinced.ÂFriendly visitors donÂt wear disguises to mask who they are,ÂŽ Pai wrote.A complaint filed by the FCC against Abramovich in June 2017 alleged he had broken the Truth in Caller ID Act Â„ which prohibits callers from falsifying caller ID infor-mation to disguise their identity with intent to harm or defraud Â„ in perpetrating Âone of the largest (and most dangerous) illegal robocalling campaigns that the commission has ever investigated.ÂŽThe complaint said AbramovichÂs robocall scheme Âbombarded American consumers and repeatedly disrupted a critical telecommunications service used by hospitals and emergency medical pro-viders.ÂŽ Consumers also were subjected to fake robocalls offering ÂdiscountedÂŽ travel services by real companies includ-ing Expedia, Marriott, Hilton and TripAdvisor.The FCC found that consumers were led to believe the calls were from well-known travel and hospitality companies and were prompted to ÂPress 1ÂŽ to learn more about ÂexclusiveÂŽ vaca-tion offers. Those who did were then transferred to foreign call centers where operators attempted to sell them vacation pack-ages Â„ often involving timeshares Â„ in places that had no relation to the actual travel or hospitality company.Abramovich attempted to fight the fine when he appeared before senators last month and said he was Ânot the kingpin that is alleged,ÂŽ according to Newsweek. Abramovich asked the FCC to reduce the fine, saying it was dispropor-tionately aggressive given that most calls were not answered or were quickly ended by consumers, according to Bloomberg.ÂClearly regulation needs to address the car-riers and providers and require the major carriers to detect robocalls activity,ÂŽ Abramovich said in testimony submitted to the Senate Commerce Committee. He also has told the com-mittee his role in the scam had been Âsignificantly overstatedÂŽ by the FCC, according to Newsweek.The FCC was unmoved. Last year, commissioner Mignon Clyburn said it would be Âone of the biggest understatements I have made in yearsÂŽ to say AmbramovichÂs case was extremely troubling. Clyburn wrote that the activities had adverse financial consequences on consumers, hurt the reputations of American businesses and posed a threat to public safety.For Pai, the $120 million fine Âsends a loud and clear message.ÂŽÂThis FCC is an active cop on the beat,ÂŽ he said, Âand will throw the book at anyone who violates our spoofing and robocall rules and harms consumers.ÂŽFlorida man behind 100 million robocalls gets record $120M neBy Jim SaundersNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEEÂ„ In the latest twist in months of legal battling after Hurricane Irma, a beleaguered Broward County nursing home has accused the Florida Department of Health of not properly complying with a judgeÂs order to turn over public records.Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis is scheduled Monday to hold a hearing on argu-ments by attorneys for The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills that the department should be held in contempt in the records dispute, according to an online docket and court records.The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills has faced months of scrutiny and a state move to revoke its license after residents died following Hurricane Irma. The Sept. 10 storm knocked out the nursing homeÂs air-conditioning system, creating sweltering conditions that led to the evacuation of residents Sept. 13. Authorities have attrib-uted 12 deaths to the problems at the nurs-ing home.The nursing home and the state have been locked in a legal battle about the license revo-cation and other issues, and The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills filed a public-records lawsuit Jan. 31, alleging the department improperly refused to provide copies of death certificates for people across the state from Sept. 9-16Â„ a week-long period that included Hurricane Irma and its immediate aftermath.Court documents have not spelled out why the nursing home wants the death cer-tificates, but Lewis last month said the death certificates are public records and should be provided by the state.ÂThe records requested by petitioner (the nursing home) are subject to FloridaÂs Public Record Act Âƒ and there is no applicable statutory exemption to permit their withhold-ing from release,ÂŽ Lewis wrote.But in a document filed last week, attorneys for The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills alleged the Department of Health (DOH)had not properly complied with LewisÂ order. ÂDespite a final judg-ment ordering DOH to comply with Hollywood HillsÂ public records request, DOH is delaying, attempting to charge illegal fees and otherwise intentionally refusing to comply with this courtÂs mandate,ÂŽ the document said. ÂAs such, this court should find DOH in contempt and order the records be produced immediately.ÂŽIn part, the nursing home objected to a May 7 invoice from the department for $5,928, including $5,907 for Âreview & redactionÂŽ of the records. The nursing home contends there is not a need to review and redact information from the death certificates, a process the invoice indicates would require 492.25 hours.The court docket Tuesday morning did not include a response from the department, but in objecting to the original public-records request, the department contended the large request fell under part of state law dealing with Âvital records or data.ÂŽ It said the nursing homeÂs request didnÂt meet legal stan-dards for releasing such information.ÂWhereas anyone may request and receive a redacted death certificate (under part of state law), only cer-tain people and entities may receive the type of general data that would allow research to be conducted,ÂŽ the department argued in a March motion to dis-miss the case. ÂSuch data Âƒ is far more broad than simply one or two specifically requested death certificates. The only possible purpose for this subsection (of law) is to regulate who may obtain large swaths of data derived from death certificates and other such records.ÂŽ The motion said the nursing home is Ânot the type of entity which may receive this data.ÂŽNursing home records dispute ratchets upMessages are left on the sidewalk of the Rehabilitation Center of Hollywood Hills nursing home a day after eight people died in 2017.

** who never missed a name, even if they hadnÂt seen each other in decades.Stories about passing the old, leather-style football helmets between teammates during the games, stealing their rivalÂs mascot and, of course, the best spot for the customary post-game fight in the parking lot echoed through the new stadium as people wandered through. Juniors from Bay, Rutherford and Mosley high schools were on hand to answer questions about the sta-diumÂs technical details, and the new scoreboard, purchased through a donation from the Chap-man Foundation, was running on all cylinders to show its capabilities as a fundraising driver for booster clubs and schools.In his invocation, Dr. Steven Kyle called the stadium a representation of Âharmony and unity in this community.ÂŽ In her closing remarks, School Board Chairwoman Ginger Littleton called it a place to create new memories.ÂIt belongs to all of us,ÂŽ Littleton said.Built on its ashes, the old Tommy Oliver Stadium made its debut to the county on Sept. 15, 1954, and actually was the second field named after Tommy Oliver. Known in his time as ÂMr. Everything,ÂŽ Oliver was a Bay High School alum and star football player who played professionally for several years before returning to the school as a teacher and coach. But then came World War II, and Oliver was drafted and eventually sent into the heart of the Pacific Theater where he died in 1945 in Okinawa.Superintendent Bill Husfelt said officials had Oliver in mind when designing the stadium, saying they Âtried to put some dignity into this place.ÂŽ The brick columns on the interior of the stadium will be used by the various schools for dedications and memori-als to famous players or records, a Hall of Cham-pions. The first one already is up Â„ a plaque commemorating the players and coaches of Rosenwald High School for their Âdedication and commitmentÂŽ during the years of segregation.Next week, Rutherford High School will be able to christen the new stadium with its first offi-cial event Â„ graduation.Near the end of the opening event, School Board member and customary football announcer Steve Moss slid into the press box and took the PA controls for a test drive, his voice echo-ing like thunder through the neighborhood. ÂWelcome everyone to Tommy Oliver Stadium.ÂŽ STADIUMFrom Page B1 The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 B9ÂEverybody is saying it was premature to talk about settlement, and that is why the judge declared there was going to be a litigation track and a settlement track. Both of those are movingÂŽ for-ward, Higby said.He said the court has picked five or six ÂbellwetherÂŽ cases to move forward, with Broward County being the Florida case.ÂThose cases have been set for trial next March,ÂŽ he said. ÂAll of the activity of the law-yers, including our team, are going to be focused on these bellwether cases. Bay CountyÂs case is going to largely be on standby during that time frame.ÂŽIn a positive development in the case for the plaintiffs, the judge has ordered the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to turn over confidential records that have tracked the exact number of opioids delivered to every city and county in the country, Higby said.ÂThe DEA and all the corporate defendants have been fighting to keep it secret for months, maybe even a year,ÂŽ Higby said.With 121.2 prescriptions issues per 100 people in 2016, Bay County has the second highest per capita rate of opioid prescrip-tions in the state, led only by neighboring Washing-ton County.County leaders said the high number of prescrip-tions has resulted in the county shelling out funds for incarcerating people, medical treatment, law enforcement and other associated costs. OPIOIDFrom Page B1times of Spring Break, that was one of my biggest concerns... the number of illegal guns that were seized on the streets in the 2014-2015 time frame, (which) topped 100.ÂŽBeach ordinance arrests also went down this year, he said.ÂWe did have a sand patrol detail we had out on the beach to enforce those ordinances,ÂŽ he said.Capt. David Baldwin, who runs west district patrol on the Beach, said with the additional per-sonnel funded from state grants and Tourist Devel-opment money, Âthis was a very manageable year.ÂŽÂAnd I hope that continues,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe had more families on the Beach that we made con-tact with with our sand patrol every day than in years past. As far as oper-ational planning, the sand patrol was outstanding. The night shift was good. We didnÂt have to use all the resources that we ini-tially planned for.ÂŽ BREAKFrom Page B1concern, so the choice was to err on the side of caution and public safety and choose the six-light system,ÂŽ Lawrence wrote.The two traffic signals together will cost $9,880, with the overall bridge project costing $68,380. New gate arms wereinstalled earlier this year, and electrical and mechanical upgrades are set for this summer.

The stateÂs lawsuit was filed in Pasco County Circuit Court the same day attorneys general in Nevada, Texas, North Carolina, North Dakota and Tennessee also sued in their state courts.Officials charge that the drug companies violated consumer protection laws by falsely downplaying the risk of addiction while promoting the benefit of opioid use. ÂWe are in the midst of a national opioid crisis,ÂŽ Bondi said during a news conference at a Tampa drug treatment center. ÂI think youÂd have to be living under a rock not to know that now.ÂŽThe state has been pon-dering legal action for months, even as several Florida cities and counties have sued and were rolled into a massive lawsuit against the industry now underway in federal court in Cleveland, Ohio.Opioid use reportedly claims 175 lives nationally each day, with Florida officials saying the state has 15 deaths daily stem-ming from addiction. Florida medical examiners reported 5,725 opioid-related deaths in 2016, a 35 percent spike from a year earlier.Florida has been part of federal settlement negotiations underway with OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma LP and other companies named in TuesdayÂs lawsuit. But the state lawsuit opens another avenue of attack on the multibillion dollar industry.Pasco CountyÂ„ where the lawsuit was filedÂ„ joined neighboring Pinellas County in 2016 in having the stateÂs high-est number of oxycodone deaths, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.Last year, there was an overdose in Pasco County every three days.Along with Purdue Pharma, other manufacturers named include Endo Pharmaceuticals, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Cephalon and Allergan.Opioid distributors sued by Florida are Amerisource Bergen Drug Corp., Cardinal Health, McKesson Corp. and Mallinckrodt LLC. ÂWe canÂt put a monetary value on loss of life,ÂŽ Bondi said.Instead, the lawsuits filed by Florida and other governments are aimed at forcing companies to reimburse the costs for treating opioid problems, including emergency room expenses and eco-nomic losses.For states and other governments, a settlement could result in billion-dollar payments. Many experts have likened the legal onslaught on drug companies to the tobacco lawsuits filed by states in the mid-1990s.Under late Gov. Lawton Chiles, Florida agreed to a more than $11 billion settlement with tobacco companies in 1997Â„ a deal that continues to bring more than $400 million into the state trea-sury each year.Florida sues drug industry for addiction crisisLawsuits aims to force companies to reimburse costs for treating opioid problemsAttorney General Pam Bondi announces in Tampa on Tuesday that her ofÂ“ ce has Â“ led a lawsuit against Â“ ve large drug manufacturers and distributers of opioids.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 B11 Special to The News HeraldPANAMA CITY Â„ Jeff and Carolyn Bottorf suffered a tragic family accident when their 3-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, drowned in their backyard pool May 24, 2007.That tragedy led them to establish the Elizabeth Bottorf Memorial Foundation with one goal in mind: To promote water safety and provide swim lessons so no one else would have to endure the anguish of losing a child to a drowning accident. That was more than 10 years ago. After raising tens of thousands of dollars through the foundation and help-ing hundreds of children learn to swim, Jeff and Carolyn realize there still is more work to be done, and that is why their charity of choice is at the Boys & Girls Club of Bay County.ÂWe know that when we give the club the foun-dationÂs money, they will teach the kids the impor-tance of water safety and teach them how to swim,ÂŽ said Carolyn Bottorf.Last year at the Boys & Girls Club almost 400children learned how to swim. Hank Hill, chief executive officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs, said Bay County has one of the highest drowning rates in Florida, and it is aboutthree times the national drowning rate.ÂThe Boys & Girls Clubs uses the funds raised through the Eliza-beth Bottorf Memorial Foundation to award scholarships to kids who couldnÂt afford to pay full price for them,ÂŽ Hill said. ÂWe ensure that no kid is turned away because of their inability to pay. We make sure that the lack of money is not a barrier to receiving life-saving swim lessons.ÂŽ Every year, to raise the funds needed for these live-saving swim lessons, the foundation holds a red fish tournament in November. The date for this yearÂs event is Nov. 3 at the St. Andrews Pier area off Beck Avenue.Sunjammers on Beck Avenue hosts the event, in which anglers from all over compete for prizes, cash and bragging rights.ÂMany of our friends and family get involved to help us raise money because they know it is an investment into our kids and our community,ÂŽ said Jeff Bottorf. ÂA couple of months head-ing into the event we will start selling raffle tickets for prizes. The day of the event, we will sell lunch plates and celebrate.ÂEvery angler that weighs in a fish receives a prize.ÂŽTo learn more about how you can get involved as sponsors, donors or fishing tournament participants, visit Elizab-ethMemorialFoundation.org or find the foundation on facebook.com/The-Elizabeth-Bottorf-Memorial-Foundation. If you are interested in swim lessons, visit bgcbayfl.org or call 850-624-9573 for more information.With the proceeds from The 10th Annual Elizabeth Bottorf Memorial Redfish Tournament, the Bottorfs award $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Bay County for its swim lesson program, bringing the total to date to more than $35,000, with about 1,000 children receiving the lessons.Elizabeth Bottorf Memorial Foundation saves livesThe Bottorfs award $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Bay County for its swim lesson program.

[BOYS & GIRLS CLUB/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS HERALD] By Heather Osbourne315-4440 | @heatheronwfdn firstname.lastname@example.orgFORT WALTON BEACH Â„ As a young boy in the 1960s, Jay Odom loved visiting Fort Walton Square, where he and his sister would stand amazed by the newly installed automatic doors at Del-champs Grocery.Fort Walton Square once was the lone shop-ping center in Fort Walton Beach, according to Odom. At that time, it was home to a Sears, Book Nook and a beauty salon.ÂI remember me and my sister standing out there at Delchamps and we would open and close the door the whole time my mom was in there shopping,ÂŽ Odom said. ÂSears had a candy store inside and we would get chocolate-covered peanuts.ÂŽOdom remembered Fort Walton Square as a place where families could enjoy coming together, shopping and being pampered.Never did Odom fathom that the little boy once obsessed with automatic doors would grow up owner of the shopping center, which he eventually renamed Uptown Station.When Odom purchased the property in the early 1990s, the shopping center no longer was a beautiful square buzzing with shoppers.Sears, one of the squareÂs anchor stores, had moved to the new Santa Rosa Mall in Mary Esther in 1976.The once booming Fort Walton Square fell to a shambles.ÂIt was a ghetto,ÂŽ Odom said. ÂIt was ugly. All of the landscaping was dead. I saw potential to redo and rehab it. It ended up being a 15-year project.ÂŽIn that time Odom constructed new build-ings, changed the landscaping and added a park and playground to Uptown Station. He brought in new tenants such as Buffalo Wild Wings, Ross Dress for Less, Pet Supermarket and Party City, which are still there today.He also developed properties near Uptown Station, including ZaxbyÂs and Uptown Corners across Eglin Parkway.ÂRoss is really what made the corner,ÂŽ Odom said. ÂIt was doing exceptionally well. It was 97 or 98 percent full in the middle of a recession.ÂŽThe Great Recession in the late 2000s forced Odom to part ways with Uptown Station and sell it to new owners. After swapping hands a few times, the shopping center was sold to its current owners in 2013.Allen Gordon, the current director of asset management for Uptown Station, said the shopping center has continued its upward climb and is now at 100 percent capacity.ÂUptown Station is a place where you can go, drop off your kids at the playground and go run in and get what you need,ÂŽ Gordon said. ÂI think that appeals to a lot of people. You can go and eat, do some shopping. ItÂs convenient.ÂŽUptown Station now is home to more than 60 national and specialty stores such as Tuesday Morning, Leitz Music, Winn-Dixie Marketplace and Work-out Anytime Fitness, according to its website.There also are more than 10 eateries, including Thaiger Thai, McAlisterÂs Deli, Five Guys Burger & Fries and MaryÂs Kitchen.Gordon said with Uptown StationÂs loca-tion so close to the beach, the open concept appeals to customers. The addition of Ulta Beauty Supply and Five Below, which are under construction, will offer shoppers even more diversity, he said.Karen Bell of Fort Walton Beach is just one of those shoppers pleased with what Uptown Station has become during the past decade, and is also excited for whatÂs to come.Bell, who was eating lunch in her car last week, said she wasnÂt visiting the center to shop, but just to eat her lunch and listen to the laughter of children on the playground, which contains a splash pad.Uptown Station has risen from its troubled past

JOE Â„ Port St. Joe provided testimony Tuesday night in advance of next weekÂs state final four in Fort Myers.The Region 2-1A champs are no ordinary 16-12 squad.For the second time in the past two weeks the Tiger Sharks applied a run-rule loss to former state No. 1 Bozeman (25-4), winning 10-0 before a huge home crowd at Centen-nial Field.Elijah Hester throttled the Bucks over five innings, allow-ing four hits while striking out two and, most importantly, not walking a batter.Meanwhile, the Tiger Sharks took advantage of every opening offered, putting up crooked numbers in three of the four innings they came to bat.ÂOver the past couple of weeks we have been swinging the bat good,ÂŽ said Port St. Joe first-year coach Ashley Summerlin. ÂGuys have been stepping up in the big moments.ÂThey have really bought into the process weÂve been asking them to go through, hitting the ball up the middle when it is there, taking the big swings when we need to.ÂŽPort St. Joe knocked down the door early.In the bottom of the first inning, with starter Cade Parker unable to locate the strike zone, the Tiger Sharks loaded the bases with no outs via two walks and an error.Caleb Butts was hit by a pitch to push across the first run, Jaden Grantland hit a fielderÂs choice grounder to plate another and John Austin Gee singled another run home to make it 3-0.ÂWe dug an early hole we couldnÂt get out of,ÂŽ Bozeman coach Jeff Patton said. ÂWe had a good plan coming in, we just didnÂt execute.ÂIt has been no fun (losing two run-rule postseason games to Port St. Joe). But that is baseball. We played better tonight than we did in the district title game, but they beat us in every way.ÂŽThe Tiger Sharks stretched the lead to 7-0 in the bottom of the third. Camron Harmon ended the top half by firing a perfect strike after scoop-ing up a single to right to nail Parker, trying to score from second, at the plate. The home half started with Butts reaching on an error after striking out. Bryce Reg-ister singled to center and Grantland put down a bunt to advance both runners.Gee walked and Brandon Brant drove in a run with a fielderÂs choice grounder.Harmon followed with a long triple to left-center to drive in two and Kelvin Grif-fin dribbled a single through the left side of the infield for another run.Bozeman went in order in the fourth and Port St. Joe added three more runs in the bottom of the inning, all with two outs.Register singled to right-center and Grantland singled to center before Gee plated Register with a single to left.Brant drove in two with a double to right-center, the last of Port St. JoeÂs 10 hits.It was left to Hester to put the Bucks down in order in the fifth, invoking the run rule and ignit-ing a boisterous celebration for a team that at midseason was under.500 and on a six-game losing streak.ÂI never would have thought of us being able to do this back in January,ÂŽ Summerlin said, noting that he was the third coach for the Tiger Sharks since last season ended.ÂWhat these guys have been through and to be able to come together and do this, it is amazing.ÂŽTiger Sharks humble Bucks again, 100 By Pat McCannThe News HeraldPENSACOLA Â„ Mosley followed the template that has been successful all season, no more so than during the playoffs while downing host West Florida 8-1 on Tuesday in a Region 1-6A semifinal baseball game.The victory enabled the Dolphins, 22-5, to advance to the region championship game. They will host the Clay-Ponte Vedra survivor, that game in extra innings later Tuesday, at 7 p.m. May 22 with another trip to the state semifinals in Fort Myers at stake.Brayden Gainey pitched five innings while allowing four hits and a run in improv-ing to 9-0. Justin Kelley came on to close out the Jaguars, who finished 18-10.Mosley took a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the third inning and scored twice more to double their lead in the fifth.West Florida avoided the shutout with a run in the bottom of the fifth, but Mosley was able to clinch the win with four runs in the top of the sixth as Kelley produced a three-run home run, his third of the season and second in the last three games.Kelley has gone 6 for 10 with seven runs batted in during that stretch.ÂHeÂs really been swing-ing the bat out of the 3 hole,ÂŽ Mosley coach Jon Hudson said. ÂBut we felt like the dif-ference in the game was our defense.ÂŽEspecially in the fourth inning when the Jaguars loaded the bases with no outs.ÂA kid hit a chopper and BR (first baseman Brett Rob-erson) made a great play with a flip to the plate and then we turned a 4-6-3 double play.ÂŽOtherwise, Mosley made three errors, but obviously was able to minimize the damage.

** C2 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Tim BoothThe Associated PressSEATTLE Â„ Seattle Mariners All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano was suspended 80 games for vio-lating baseballÂs joint drug agreement.The league announced CanoÂs suspension Tuesday, a stunning development for the stalwart in the middle of the MarinersÂ lineup and a club expected to contend for a postseason spot in the Ameri-can League. Cano tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic. In a statement released through the playersÂ association, Cano said, ÂThis substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment.ÂŽ He said he didnÂt realize it was banned.Cano is the most prominent player to be busted since Melky Cabrera was suspended in 2012 while lead-ing the National League in hitting. There have been 36 players suspended this year under the minor league drug program and six in addition to Cano under the big league program: Houston pitcher Dean Deetz, Washington catcher Raudy Read, Pittsburgh pitcher Nik Turley, Kansas City outfielder Jorge Bonifacio, Toronto pitcher Thomas Pannone and Minne-sota shortstop Jorge Polanco.If no games are postponed, Cano would be eligible to return Aug. 14 at Oakland.ÂFor more than fifteen years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life. I would never do anything to cheat the rules of the game that I love, and after undergoing dozens of drug tests over more than a decade, I have never tested positive for a performance enhancing substance for the simple reason that I have never taken one,ÂŽ Cano said in the state-ment issued by the playersÂ association. ÂToday I decided to accept MLBÂs suspension. This was the most difficult decision I have ever made in my life, but ultimately the right decision given that I do not dispute that I was given this substance. I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization.ÂŽFurosemide, sold under the name Lasix, can be pur-chased without a prescription and is used to treat high blood pressure and fluid buildup. It is on the World Anti-Doping AgencyÂs list of banned substances.CanoÂs positive resulted from an offseason test, a person familiar with the pro-cess said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement specifies such details remain confidential.Because the substance involved was a diuretic, the next step was for Thomas Martin, the independent program administrator hired by the MLB and the playersÂ association, to determine whether the use of Furosemide was an attempt to Âto substitute, dilute, mask or adulterate a specimen or in any other manner alter a test,ÂŽ according to the joint drug program.After Martin made that determination, the union filed a grievance last month. The case was scheduled to be heard starting Tuesday in Seattle before arbitrator Mark Irvings, but the union informed MLB last Friday that Cano wanted to drop the grievance and reach a settle-ment, the person said. MLB Senior Vice President Patrick Houlihan and union deputy general counsel Matt Nussbaum then worked to reach the agreement to accept the discipline. ItÂs the first major strike in a career that has Hall of Fame potential. Cano was trending toward becoming one of the few current players with a chance to reach 3,000 hits in his career and has been a con-summate defensive standout. Cano is an eight-time AllStar but now must deal with the stigma of a suspension.ÂRobinson made a mistake. He has explained to us what happened, accepted the pun-ishment and has apologized to the fans, the organization and his teammates. We will sup-port Robinson as he works through this challenge,ÂŽ the Mariners said in a statement.The suspension comes on the heels of Cano suffering the first significant injury of his tenure in Seattle. Cano landed on the disabled list Monday after breaking a bone in his right hand after getting hit by a pitch during SundayÂs game in Detroit. He was scheduled to meet with a hand specialist in Phila-delphia early Tuesday. Since 2007, Cano has played at least 150 games each season.Cano can serve his suspen-sion while on the disabled list but is now ineligible for the postseason should the Mari-ners get there and end the longest playoff drought in the four major professional sports. If there are no games post-poned, the Mariners have 11 off days during the time of the ban, so Cano would lose 91-186ths of his $24 million salary, which comes to $11,741,936.This season, Cano was hitting .287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs in 39 games. HeÂs appeared healthier and quicker than the past few seasons when heÂs played through leg injuries that at times limited his range.Cano suspended 80 games for drug violationIn this Sept. 24 photo, Seattle MarinersÂ Robinson Cano watches from the dugout during a baseball game against the Cleveland Indians in Seattle. [ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Steve ReedThe Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Â„ The Carolina Panthers are being sold for an NFL-record $2.2 billion.Hedge fund manager David Tepper has agreed to buy the Panthers from team founder Jerry Richardson, two people familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The people spoke to The Asso-ciated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not yet announced the sale.The purchase is subject to a vote at the NFL owners meet-ing next week in Atlanta.Richardson announced in December he was selling the team amid an NFL investigation into sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace. That decision came after a report by Sports Illustrated detailing RichardsonÂs alleged misconduct.The leagueÂs investigation into the allegations is still ongoing.The price tag is the most ever paid for an NFL franchise, eclipsing the $1.4 billion the Pegula family paid to purchase the Buffalo Bills in 2014.Ben Navarro, the founder and CEO of Sherman Finan-cial Group, was considered TepperÂs biggest competitor in the bid to purchase the Panthers. He conceded Tues-day that heÂd lost the bid.ÂMy family and I are grateful to have had the opportunity to be included as a potential buyer of one of the premier assets in all of the Carolinas Â„ the Panthers football team,ÂŽ Navarro said in an email to The Associated Press. ÂIt would have been a privilege to become the stewards of this iconic franchise to ensure its home remains in the Carolinas where it belongs, to estab-lish a new era of leadership and excellence on and off the field, and to leverage the teamÂs NFL platform to further our quest to help all children gain access to a great education.ÂŽTepperÂs plans on whether the team will remain in Char-lotte for the long-term future remain unclear.The Panthers are tied to their downtown stadium through the 2018 season because of an agreement with the city. After that a new owner is free to extend the lease to the stadium, build a new stadium or possibly move the team.Moving the Panthers out of Charlotte would seem to a longshot.Sources: Tepper to sign Panthers dealIn this May 10, 2016, photo, billionaire hedge fund manager David Tepper, addresses a gathering during a grand opening of rock star and philanthropist Jon Bon JoviÂs Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation Soul Kitchen and B.E.A.T.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 C3By Wayne ParryThe Associated PressATLANTIC CITY, N.J. Â„ Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has cleared the way for states to legalize sports bet-ting, the race is on to see who will referee the multibillion-dollar business of gambling on pro and college games.The NFL, NBA and others want Congress to set uniform, nationwide rules on sports gambling for all states, saying the integrity of athletics is at stake. And an influential Republican on Capitol Hill, Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, quickly announced plans to push for such legislation.But states are already moving quickly to enact their own laws, with some legislators wanting fans to be able to place wagers by the time football season starts this fall. And there are serious doubts Congress wants to get involved.ÂSports are played on a national and sometimes inter-national stage, crossing state borders and involving residents of numerous municipalities,ÂŽ said Rummy Pandit, a gam-bling analyst with New JerseyÂs Stockton University. ÂFrom that standpoint, federal regu-lation of sports betting makes sense. But the federal government has not historically been involved in the day-to-day regulation and oversight of gaming.ÂŽFor years the major sports leagues argued that gambling on games would lead to match-fixing and point-shaving. Now that they lost the court battle with MondayÂs landmark ruling, many suspect that they are now pushing for federal legislation not for high-minded reasons, but because they see it as the easiest way to get a cut of the proceeds.Negotiating a piece of the action with Congress would be more efficient than trying to work out deals one by one with dozens of states.If it passed a nationwide bill, Congress could require casinos, tracks or state governments to share some of their revenue with the sports leagues Â„ or pay them what the leagues like to call Âinteg-rity fees,ÂŽ designed to cover the costs of policing betting.The leagues have been making headway in negotia-tions on integrity fees with individual states, including Kansas, Connecticut, Indiana and New York, said Daniel Wallach, a sports law expert from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The leagues also have come down on their fee demands in several states, lowering them from 1 percent to 0.25 percent, he said.Wallach said the leagues, in seeking to be paid for sports betting, might also be able to make a compelling court case that they have intellectual property rights in the data that is used in wagering.On the other side of the negotiating table, the gam-bling industry might want to work out a grand compromise on giving a cut to the sports leagues, rather than Âbattle it out, state to state to state, winning some, losing some,ÂŽ Wallach said.But state opposition remains strong. Within hours after the ruling, New Jersey lawmakers introduced a new bill to regulate sports betting that would drop the integrity fee that was in an earlier version.In West Virginia, Republi-can Gov. Jim Justice allowed a sports betting bill to become law without his signature and later announced he had reached a deal for casinos to pay a fee to pro sports leagues. But casino operators denied there was a deal. On Monday, the high court struck down a federal law that limited sports betting to four states that met a 1991 deadline to legalize it: Nevada, Delaware, Montana and Oregon. It came on a court challenge from New Jersey. As a result of the ruling, states are now free to adopt laws regulating sports betting.Who will referee the billion-dollar sports betting industry?By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressCHICAGO Â„ Phoenix general manager Ryan McDonough was on stage moments after the NBA draft lottery ended, talking about the future of the Suns and mentioning how they had the best odds of picking No. 1 overall.And then he stopped to correct himself.ÂWe have No. 1,ÂŽ McDonough said. ÂIÂve got to adjust to that.ÂŽItÂs an adjustment that he and the Suns will happily be making.The worst team in the league this season will pick first in the NBA draft on June 21, after the Suns won the draft lottery on Tuesday night. ItÂs the first time the Suns will have the chance to make the first overall selection.ÂItÂs great for our franchise,ÂŽ said McDonough, whose club went 21-61 this season and missed the play-offs for an eighth consecutive year. ÂItÂs something that you say coming into it, you donÂt have any control over it so youÂre not going to get nervous. And I was here dying. I could barely breathe. I needed an oxygen tank.ÂŽ The Suns have three great candidates for No. 1, all with ties to either Arizona or new Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov. Arizona freshman center Deandre Ayton is widely expected to be a strong candidate to go No. 1 overall, and he was at the lottery to watch the Suns win the pick. So was DukeÂs Marvin Bagley III, an Arizona native.And Kokoskov is particu-larly familiar with SloveniaÂs Luka Doncic, who will be coming to the NBA from Real Madrid. Kokoskov coached Slovenia Â„ and Doncic Â„ to the gold medal at the European championships last summer.ÂWe have a small target grouping in mind, but weÂre not going to rule anything out at this point,ÂŽ McDonough said. ÂI think weÂll have a great choice, no matter who we select.ÂŽThe Suns were big winners.So were Sacramento and Atlanta.Sacramento will pick No. 2 and Atlanta got the No. 3 pick Â„ both of them moving up and bucking some odds to get there. The top three spots were determined by the lot-tery, and then spots 4-14 fell in line of reverse order of record.Sacramento had a 18.3 percent chance entering the lottery of moving into the top three, while AtlantaÂs move-up was really just a slightly bigger upset than a coin-flip Â„ the Hawks came into the night with a 42.3 percent chance of getting picks 1, 2 or 3.ÂNo big deal. ItÂs a deep draft,ÂŽ Kings vice president and general manager Vlade Divac said. ÂWeÂre going to do our job and obviously, IÂm glad that we played the last two years to develop guys and try to win games. You cannot develop guys if you donÂt teach them how to win.ÂŽSuns win NBA draft lottery, right to pick No. 1 next monthJosh Jackson, left, representing the Phoenix Suns, Jami Gertz, center, representing the Atlanta Hawks, and DeÂAaron Fox, representing the Sacramento Kings, wait for the announcement of the top three picks in the 2018 NBA during the NBA draft lottery Tuesday in Chicago. [CHARLES REX ARBOGAST/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressBrad StevensÂ first opportunity to become an NBA head coach was presented to him by Boston. Same goes for Tyronn Lue, with Cleveland. Same goes for Steve Kerr, with Golden State.Hiring rookies worked out just fine for those clubs.Phoenix and Atlanta are now hoping to reap the same benefits as the Celtics, Cava-liers and Warriors. The Suns introduced Igor Kokoskov on Monday, the same day that the Hawks welcomed fellow first-time head coach Lloyd Pierce to their franchise. And those moves followed Charlotte last week hiring James Borrego, whose only head-coaching experience was a 30-game interim stint. There are plenty of estab-lished head coaches who donÂt have jobs right now. But even with the market flooded with experienced coaches, the Suns, Hawks and Hornets went down roads less-traveled Â„ and thereÂs still potential for more first-timers in the NBA head-coaching fraternity by the time next season opens.ÂRookie coach, interna-tional coach, foreign coach,ÂŽ said Kokoskov, the first European-born coach to lead an NBA team. ÂIt really takes courage. It puts not pressure (on me) but expectations to prove that they were right.ÂŽSan Antonio assistant Becky Hammon has been on Milwau-keeÂs radar, as the Bucks look for their next full-time coach. And whenever she gets hired Â„ many around the league believe itÂs a question of when, not if, Hammon gets her chance Â„ sheÂll be a first-timer in a whole new category, as the first woman to coach an NBA team. Boston assistant Jay Larranaga was in the mix for the Charlotte job and will surely get more offers before long. Jerry Stackhouse, who has proven his mettle as the coach of TorontoÂs G League club, is now a name that gets attached to just about every opening in the NBA as he waits for his first call to coach in the league where he starred as a player.There doesnÂt seem to inter-est in big names from the college ranks Â„ like John Cali-pari or Tom Izzo. Experience still means plenty in the NBA, but timing and fit both seem far more important right now.ÂI love challenges,ÂŽ said Pierce, a longtime NBA assis-tant, most recently with Philadelphia. ÂI think this is going to be a fun challenge. ItÂs not about the difficulty of the challenge, itÂs about the excitement of it and IÂm look-ing forward to the excitement of being here.ÂŽMore rookie coaches getting a shot By Stephen WhynoThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Victor Hedman scored his first goal of the playoffs and added two assists, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 36 saves to help the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Washington Capitals 4-2 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final Tuesday night and cut their series deficit to 2-1.Hedman had the primary assist on power-play goals by Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov and was a key part of three big penalty kills that gave Tampa Bay some much-needed momentum. Determined to create the kind of shift he thought could turn the East final around after back-to-back home losses, the Norris Trophy finalist as the NHLÂs top defenseman was one of the most dominant players on the ice and extended his point streak to eight gamesCriticized for his play in the first two games against Washington, Vasilevskiy was on top of his game as the Capitals put 38 shots on net. Vasilevskiy made seven saves on the penalty kill alone to save a beleaguered unit that came in ranked 13th out of 16 playoff teams.The Lightning would still like to cut down on the qual-ity chances Vasilevskiy has to stop in Game 4 on Thursday and beyond, like the one Brett Connolly scored on after a turnover by Ondrej Palat. They also surrendered a 6-on-5 goal to Evgeny Kuznetsov with 3:02 left that made things interesting in the final minutes.But the offensive depth that helped them get through the first two rounds in five games apiece returned with Hedman and Brayden Point scoring just Tampa BayÂs second and third even-strength goals in the series. Hedman now has a goal and 10 assists during his point streak.Tampa Bay got two injury scares in the third period when Stamkos hobbled off after taking a slap shot from teammate Braydon Coburn in the right knee and Tyler Johnson was cross-checked by Michal Kempny. Stamkos and Johnson each returned minutes later to a game that included nastiness after whistles throughout.Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby allowed four goals on 23 shots, though powerplay one-timers by Stamkos and Kucherov were almost impossible to stop. The Light-ning extended their streak of consecutive games with a power-play goal to seven and have 11 total in that time.Lightning beat Caps to cut East de cit to 21Washington Capitals right wing T.J. Oshie (77) passes the puck past Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman (77), from Sweden, during the second period of Game 3 of the NHL Eastern Conference Â“ nals playoff series, Tuesday in Washington.

The investigation of Cornet came to light in January.She has been ranked as high as No. 11, in 2009, and is currently No. 32.Cornet has won five WTA titles.GREEN BAY, WIS.Packers sign Â“ rst-round draft pick AlexanderThe Green Bay Packers have signed first-round draft pick Jaire Alexander, a cor-nerback from Louisville.Packers general man-ager Brian Gutekunst announced the deal Tuesday.The Packers selected Alexander last month with the 18th overall pick. Alexander had a team-high five inter-ceptions as a sophomore in 2016 before a knee injury limited him to six games last season. He also was a kick returner at Louisville. Green Bay is hoping the additions of Alexan-der and second-round pick Josh Jackson of Iowa can boost a secondary that has been hit hard by injuries. The Packers allowed 30 touchdown passes last season, tied for the second-highest total of any team.BERLINRussia relents on visa for German journalistRussia has granted entry to the World Cup for a German journalist who exposed systematic doping in Russian athletics, reversing a decision last week that angered German officials.However, Hajo Seppelt will face ques-tioning if he goes to the tournament, Russian law enforcement said on Tuesday.German public broadcaster ARD said SeppeltÂs visa to report on the World Cup was declared invalid last week on the grounds that he was on a list of people who are Âpersona non grata.ÂŽ Officials including For-eign Minister Heiko Maas publicly pressed Russia to reconsider.On Tuesday, Maas tweeted: ÂRussian side has just informed us that @hajoseppelt can enter the country at least for the World Cup. Still pushing for free reporting.ÂŽThe tournament is played June 14-July 15. The Associated Press

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 C7ARIES (March 21-April 19) Â„ The shortcut will be obvious Â„ someone will point to it with a shiny sign. The long and viable path wonÂt be obvious, but if youÂre internally quiet, then youÂll probably sense it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ In your mind, itÂs not enough for you to just show up. You want to show up and know that they feel you there. You want to show up in such a way as to make sure that people will miss you when you donÂt. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ EfÂ“ ciency is partly about good planning and mostly about dealing well with people. When people feel part of the team, theyÂll place a high priority on what needs to be accomplished for the win. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ You have someone powerful on your side, rooting for you to do whatever it takes for maximum vitality Â„ and that someone is you. All success will spring from taking excellent care of yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Â„ Should you knock yourself out to try and win over the very skeptical powers that be, or should you run the other direction from whatÂs clearly a no-win situation? Choose the action that will make you feel the best about yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Â„ The magic and momentum will begin when your goals match up nicely with the goals of another. If this isnÂt happening, itÂs not you; itÂs the situation. Keep moving and looking for a match. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Â„ Your sensitivity to diet is turned up today, and youÂll be more affected than usual by the foods you eat. Make a plan and stick to it no matter what. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Â„ Being able to control your state of mind will be huge. To determine the state that would be most suited to the job and then have the self-mastery to move your head there... well, that pretty much guarantees success today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Â„ The least powerful people are the ones who believe they are small. TheyÂll show this by being nasty to underlings. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Â„ The situation youÂre in today is not a zero-sum game. People need what youÂre offering just as much as they need what others are offering. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ There will be those who look at everything as a ÂyouÂŽ problem or a ÂmeÂŽ problem. Those are the hardest ones to deal with. If you can create a team mentality, then everything will turn into Âwe,ÂŽ and youÂll all get a lot accomplished. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Â„ People donÂt want to be told what to do. They donÂt even want to be told what other people did to create success. People just want acknowledgement today. ThatÂs all.

I'm now starting over from scratch to collect special recipes I can pass down to my children. Most of my family members have died, so they can no longer be a resource for the traditional dishes I grew up with. I saw a post online a while back about a cookbooklet set you were offering. Is it still available, and how much does it cost? It would mean a lot to me to be able to share some of your favorite recipes with my kids and younger relatives. Â„ LORIE IN ENCINO, CALIF.DEAR LORIE: Having been a compulsive recipe collector for many years, I can imagine how frustrating it was to discover your recipes were gone. I hope my recipe booklets will start you on your way to rebuilding your collection. Many readers have written to tell me that my recipes are great for entertaining and actually save calories when they are divided among a greater number of guests. The Raw Apple Cake serves 16. (Remember, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away.") Think of the fiber! The Pecan Pie has taken blue ribbons in county fairs. Others were featured on the covers of women's magazines. My cookbooklet set contains more than 100 tasty recipes for soups, salads, appetizers, main courses and desserts that can be used when friends and family get together to celebrate holidays and special occasions. Once you start reviewing "Cookbooklet II," you will see that a sweet tooth runs in my family. The cookbooklets are sold as a set and can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby Â„ Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. I hope you will enjoy all the recipes because dinner guests, family members Â„ as well as other readers Â„ have raved about them. They have even been used as the basis for Dear Abby-themed dinner parties. (The place cards were decorated with hearts and flowers, and the centerpiece was a "bouquet" of envelopes addressed to me.) Included in this collection are tips on entertaining for those who are inexperienced or nervous about it. Remember, although what you put on the table is important, it's who you put in the chairs that makes a great party.

** The News Herald | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 D1 FOODI am not sure about the origin of pecan pie, but as I understand, it made its appearance in the 1930s when the makers of corn syrup were needing to promote their product. As much as I enjoy experimenting with recipes, pecan pie is one recipe that I could not see any need to change. Then a lady who was taking a cooking class that I was teaching asked if I had a recipe for Fried Pecan Pies. I told her I had never heard of a fried pecan pie but would see if I could come up with a recipe for one. After studying this recipe, I decided that the only way to make the filling firm enough to stay in the fried pie crust was to cook the filling on top of the stove and allow it to cool completely before using it. It worked great and is perfect for a dessert on the go. Fried Pecan PiesÂ€ 1 c. Â“ rmly packed light brown sugar Â€ 1 Tbsp. Â” our Â€ 3 lightly beaten eggs Â€ 1 c. light corn syrup Â€ 4 Tbsp. butter Â€ 1 c. chopped toasted pecans Â€ 2 c self-rising Â” our Â€ cup oil Â€ c. milk Â€ Oil for frying In heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar and Â” our, Mix well. Add eggs, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, stirring continuously, until mixture has thickened. This probably will take about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the toasted pecans. Refrigerate until cool. This can be made ahead and used as needed. Combine self-rising Â” our, oil and milk in food processor. Process until mixture forms a ball. Turn out onto Â” oured surface and knead until slightly Â“ rmer than biscuit dough. Divide into 6 portions. Roll each portion to a ball about 2 inches in diameter. Using a Â” oured rolling pin, roll each ball to a circle about 5 to 6 inches in diameter. Dough should be thin. Place about cup of Â“ lling in center of each circle. Fold to form a half-moon shape. Press edges with a fork to seal well. Gently push fork into top and bottom of each pie 3 or 4 times. This will prevent the crust from being doughy on the inside. Pour oil into electric skillet to a depth of about inch. Heat to 375 degrees. Place the pies, 2 or 3 at a time, into hot oil and fry until golden brown, turning as needed. Drain well on paper towels. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Makes 6 pies.Write to Prudence Hilburn at prudencehilburn@ aol.com or visit www. prudencehilburn.com. PARTY PLANNINGCALCULATE SERVINGSIf you are having a party, do you know how much to serve per guest? The following estimates come from the Taste of Home website. Appetizers: Each guest can be expected to have six appetizers, so a party with ve guests would need 30 appetizers. Entrees: For poultry, sh or meat, plan on 6 ounces per guest. Dessert: O er one slice per guest for cakes, tarts and pastries, 4 ounces per guest for creamy desserts and 5 ounces per guest for ice cream. SUPERFOODSHEALTH BOOSTERSNutritionist Steven Macari shared the following superfoods with HarperÂs Bazaar. Â€ Artichokes are good for the liver and gallbladder, and boost glutathione, a potent antioxidant. Â€ Beets are good for the liver and contain betaine, which can aid in reducing in ammation. Â€ Bone broth and collagen powder contain protein and the amino acid glycine, which helps with detoxi cation. APPETIZER IDEASTUFFED PEPPADEW PEPPERSPeppadew peppers Â„ a cross between a pepper and a tomato Â„ come cored, so for a spring appetizer, you just ll them and add a garnish, says The Nest. Examples of llings include white bean salad, hummus, goat or feta cheese, garlic and herb cream cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with a basil leaf, chives or parsley. Â„ Brandpoint IN THE KITCHENSliced or fried, pecan pie is a true delight FOODBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowThe hamburger is one of AmericaÂs favorite dishes and famous culinary exports. This simple meal illustrates sophisticated gastronomic principles, and thanks to its culinary stature, as well as some other unique attributes, the hamburger is also in a position to teach us something else: how to shrink the carbon footprint of our meals. Beef is increasingly regarded as the most environmentally destructive form of human protein, thanks to the greenhouse gases released by cattle and the production of their food. Some grazing advocates have argued that properly managed cattle can be carbon-neutral, and the newly released results of a fiveyear study Â„ a collaboration between the University of Michigan and the Union of Concerned Scientists Â„ support that notion. Only about 1 percent of American beef is currently grass-fed, and itÂs an open question as to whether beef eaters will stomach this change. They would have to agree to eat grass-fed beef, which is often leaner and tougher than its feedlot-finished counterpart. And they would also have to accept eating less, because healthy grazing practices would only produce about half the beef per acre compared to current practices. The price, meanwhile, would likely rise. Hamburger nullifies these concerns, as well as the one nobody is talking about: Americans would need to accept buying their meat frozen, not fresh. Fresh is not best for meat The idea that fresh meat is somehow superior to meat thatÂs spent months in the freezer is a notion as deeply rooted as it is unsupported. Unless that attitude changes, grass-fed beef will never be more than a niche product. HereÂs why. Feedlot beef can be supplied year-round, on demand. Whenever meat is required to fulfill an order, fat cows are shipped to slaughter, and meat is available, even in the dead of winter. But a grass-fed beef supplier is at a serious disadvantage trying to compete. The rancherÂs cattle are standing around eating hay all winter, while those feedlot cows are eating corn and soy. The grass-fed animals weigh less than they did the previous summer, because hay is not as nutritious as green grass. Thanks to their fat reserves from the previous summer, grass-fed animals make it through the winter fine, but as those reserves are drained, the meat loses quality. Grass-fed beef is of the highest quality when slaughtered in summer, at peak fattiness. That is when the producer has the most meat per animal to sell, and the consumer gets the richest meat. Hamburger offers a solution to this and every other obstacle to grass-fed beef. Unlike more prestigious cuts, burger can be thawed very quickly: Just drop a frozen pack in a bowl of room temperature water. As a hunter, I do this regularly with my deer and elk burger, and itÂs some of the finest eating there is, year-round. So itÂs perplexing to see WendyÂs making such a big deal of its Â100% fresh, never frozenÂŽ burger promise. The only advantage of raw meat is the convenience. You can take it home and cook it. But in terms of quality or safety, raw meat might as well be called rotting meat, because this is what happens is soon as meat is no longer attached to a living animal. Unless itÂs frozen or otherwise preserved. The perfect mouthful Served on a bun with trimmings, the burger succ eeds and satisfies thanks to the sophisticated convergence of flavors that are presented to the mouth in just the right proportions. The meat itself tastes good, but the nibble of onion is necessary as well, as are the munch of pickle, crunch of lettuce and juicy gush of ripe tomato. The hamburger is a laboratory for exploring how different tastes can come together in your mouth to provide pleasure. Alas, if there is a downside to the classic presentation of the hamburger, itÂs that once the first bite is taken, the magnificent structure of the hamburger sandwich begins to break down. With each subsequent violation it appears less attractive. Meanwhile, it becomes more difficult to maintain the desired proportions of meat and trimmings in each bite. I prefer to serve my burgers deconstructed. That way I can arrange each bite properly, without struggle to remain in control of an unstable sandwich. The bites can be delivered by spoon, fingertips, on a toasted sesame seed bun or in lettuce leaves. The burger meat itself, I mix with salt and garlic powder and a little bit of olive oil before cooking. Chopped parsley or other herbs are a great addition to ground grass-fed meat as well. When itÂs time to eat, I begin with a bite-sized piece of meat and use a dab of mayo to stick a piece of onion to it. Then I eat it, and while IÂm chewing IÂll adjust the mouthful by taking nibbles of pickle, tomato, roasted green chile and whatever else I think will help.

** D2 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | The News Herald By Becky KrystalThe Washington PostSeveral kitchen tools can blend or puree. The jar blender and food processor are the big guys who hog the spotlight. The handheld immersion blender is the smallerbut-still-plenty-powerful dark horse for MVP. When youÂre trying to decide which is best for you, Mary Rodgers, director of marketing and communications for Cuisinart, recommends that you think about what youÂre going to be making. Each appliance performs similar tasks. An immersion blender Â„ also known as a stick or hand blender Â„ can blend, puree and emulsify, she says. A standard jar blender can also handle rougher tasks such as crushing ice, but it requires more liquid to achieve smooth results. Food processors operate at lower speeds than both those types of blenders, she explains, which gives you greater control and lets you chop rather than puree, if you want, not to mention shred and slice with the proper attachments. So what can you make with an immersion blender? Soups. Gravy. Smoothies. Mayonnaise. Guacamole. Vinaigrette. Pancake batter. Sauces. Frothed milk. Whipped cream. Baby food. Salsa. In other words, this versatile little appliance can do a lot. HereÂs why you might want to have one in your kitchen, along with tips for making the most of it. ItÂs not a huge commitment. The most basic models, which offer one or two speeds, go for around $30. And they donÂt take up a lot of storage room either, especially when the motor body is disconnected from the blending shaft. If you havenÂt been able to take the leap to a jar blender or food processor, think about starting with an immersion blender. Some hand blenders move even more into the territory of other tools, offering interchangeable blades or attachments such as whisks and choppers. It can be more efficient than other blending appliances. Some of my favorite soup recipes call for pureeing by transferring the mixture to a jar blender or food processor. This was always an annoying multistep process, usually involving batches and the whole problem of getting the contents of a Dutch oven into my blender by ladle and measuring cup. More things to clean, more fussing. With an immersion blender, you can do everything right in the pot and not worry about putting hot soup in a jar blender, which can blow the top off and make a huge mess, not to mention burn you.Why buying an immersion blender is a smooth moveBy Joe YonanThe Washington PostYou can stuff all manner of ingredients into a taco. Read enough modern cookbooks, in fact, and youÂll see far too many taco recipes that involve multiple sub-recipes for sauces, pickles and fillings. But the more often you make tacos the more you realize: They donÂt need all that. Pick the right combination Â„ which can be just two elements, besides the corn tortillas Â„ and theyÂre plenty satisfying. By the time youÂre ready to assemble the tacos, youÂre also ready for a nap. I think itÂs particularly common with vegetarian or vegan tacos. Perhaps in an attempt to prove that plant-based dishes can be as complex as those with animal products, authors can go a little overboard. IÂve done it myself. ItÂs a stripped-down, even sophisticated way to approach what I consider an elemental dish. ThatÂs what I appreciate about Danielle and Laura KosannÂs taco recipes in ÂGreat TastesÂŽ (Clarkson Potter, 2018). As co-creators of the online magazine the New Potato, the sisters display an appealingly breezy approach to cooking and entertaining, and they devote a short chapter to tacos Â„ because what could be breezier? Their Eggplant Tacos With Pico de Gallo are almost self-explanatory: You broil (or grill) heavily seasoned eggplant slices, chop them up and serve them on warmed corn tortillas along with a simple pico de gallo. The salsa has built-in crunch and spice, while the alreadymeaty eggplant becomes even more so with the addition of coriander and cumin. I wouldnÂt object if you added pumpkin seeds or scallions, queso fresco or feta. None of that would be wrong, but these are already right.A taco recipe that proves: Less is moreEggplant Tacos With Pico de Gallo. [DEB LINDSEY FOR THE WASHINGTON POST] FOOD4 servings (makes 8 tacos) Ingredients For the pico de gallo Â€ 1 pound plum tomatoes Â€ cup Â“ nely diced white onion Â€ 1 large jalapeo pepper, seeded and Â“ nely chopped Â€ 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges for serving Â€ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed For the tacos Â€ 8 corn tortillas Â€ 2 pounds eggplant (preferably small), cut lengthwise into inch slices Â€ cup extra-virgin olive oil Â€ teaspoon kosher salt Â€ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Â€ 2 teaspoons ground coriander Â€ 1 teaspoon ground cumin Steps For the pico de gallo: Hull the tomatoes, then cut them in quarters from top to bottom. Use your Â“ ngers to scoop out and discard the seeds. Finely chop the remaining solids, placing them in a medium bowl as you work. Add the onion, jalapeo, lime juice and salt; toss to combine. Taste, and add more salt, as needed. For the tacos: Position a rack 6 inches from the broiler element; preheat to broil. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and have nearby a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap around the tortillas. Heat as many tortillas will Â“ t in the skillet without overlapping for about 30 seconds on each side, just until theyÂre starting to lightly spot and perhaps puff, and immediately transfer them to the foil as they are heated, keeping them wrapped while you warm up the rest. Keep them tightly wrapped until youÂre ready to serve the tacos. Arrange the eggplant slices on two rimmed baking sheets, in a single layer. Brush with half the oil, then season with half the salt, pepper, coriander and cumin, rubbing in those spices. Turn over the slices and repeat the brushing and seasoning. Transfer one baking sheet to the oven; broil the eggplant until deeply browned, 3 to 4 minutes, then Â” ip the slices and broil until browned on the second sides. Repeat with the second batch. Transfer the eggplant slices to a cutting board, then cut the slices crosswise into strips. When ready to serve the tacos, divide the eggplant among the tortillas, and pass the pico de gallo and lime wedges.Eggplant tacos with pico de galloBy Ellie Krieger The Washington PostVisiting the yogurt case is like a taking trip around the world these days: Greek, French, Australian and Icelandic styles, and more. If you are lucky, next to those you will find labneh, the Middle Eastern yogurt so thick and spreadable it is referred to as a cheese. It has a rich texture and a refreshingly tangy flavor Â„ something like a light sour cream Â„ and I am officially enamored of it. I eat it by the spoonful on its own or with fruit, use it as a base for dips and dollop it into soups and sauces. Because labneh is so thick, it is especially well-suited for smearing on bread, as it is in these toasts. How I love labneh, the Middle Eastern schmearSpring Toasts With Labneh. [DEB LINDSEY FOR THE WASHINGTON POST] 4 servings main-course or 8 snack servings Here, the rich and spreadable Middle Eastern yogurt is smeared luxuriously on slices of whole-grain bread and topped with bright spring produce and sunÂ” ower seeds. If you canÂt Â“ nd labneh, the Icelandic yogurt known as skyr will work instead. From nutritionist and cookbook author Ellie Krieger. Ingredients Â€ 8 slices crusty, textured whole-grain bread, such as from a ÂhealthÂŽ loaf ( -inch thick slices, about 1 ounces each) Â€ cup labneh (regular or lowfat; see headnote) Â€ 4 medium radishes, thinly sliced Â€ 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil Â€ 2 tablespoons broccoli sprouts or other type of sprouts Â€ 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves Â€ 1 tablespoon unsalted sunÂ” ower seeds, toasted (see NOTE) Â€ Coarse sea salt Â€ Freshly ground black pepper Steps Toast the bread. Spread about 1 tablespoons of the labneh over each slice, then top with the radishes, sprinkle with the oil, and top with the sprouts, mint and sunÂ” ower seeds. Season lightly with salt and pepper, then serve right away. NOTE: Toast the sunÂ” ower seeds in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat for several minutes, until fragrant and slightly darkened, shaking the pan occasionally to avoid scorching. Cool before using.Spring toasts With LabnehBy Caitlin DeweyThe Washington PostFoodmakers will soon be required to disclose when their products contain genetically modified ingredients Â„ but those labels may not be as obvious, or as comprehensive, as consumers expected. Food products may be exempted from labeling if they are made with some refined GM sugars and oils, or if a product contains GM ingredients in amounts that fall beneath a predetermined threshold, according to a proposed rule released by the Agriculture Department on May 3. The proposed rule also instructs foodmakers to use the term ÂbioengineeredÂŽ to label GM foods instead of Âgenetically modified,ÂŽ a more recognizable phrase. The proposed rule, which will now undergo a public comment period and could be finalized as early as this summer, represents a major milestone in the complicated, years-long process to regulate the labeling of GM foods. Congress passed a mandatorylabeling law in 2016, but implementation has been delayed by questions about which foods should be covered and what types of labels foodmakers should use. Food and consumer groups said they were happy to see the rules move forward, though some expressed concern about provisions they say could leave many products excluded and many shoppers confused. ÂWe think, at the most fundamental level, consumers expect the mandatory GM labeling standard to apply to all GM foods,ÂŽ said Colin OÂNeil, the legislative director for the Environmental Working Group. The proposed rule provides the best glimpse so far into what mandatory GM labels will look like Â„ while still leaving some questions open. Food companies will have three options for disclosing GM ingredients, the USDA said: A one-sentence label declaration, such as Âcontains a bioengineered food ingredientÂŽ; a standardized icon, like that used in the National Organic Program; or a QR code or other digital marker that directs shoppers to a website for more information. In a statement, the Grocery Manufacturers Association praised the flexible standard, pointing out that it has already put QR codes on 25,000 products. ÂWe welcome the release of the proposed rule ... and will be working with our member companies to review and develop comments on the draft rule and the USDA questions,ÂŽ the association said in a statement. ÂOur comments to USDA will reflect the ongoing commitment of our member companies to providing consumers with the transparency they need to make informed product choices.ÂŽMandatory GMO labels are coming to your food
