The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecast calls for 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes. One to four hurricanes could be ÂmajorÂŽ with sustained winds of at least 111 mph.If that forecast holds, it would make for a near-normal or above-normal season. An aver-age hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.ÂThere are no strong climate signals saying itÂs going to be extremely active, like last year, or extremely weak,ÂŽ said Gerry Bell, the lead hurricane forecaster at NOAAÂs Climate Prediction Center.In the short term, the National Hurricane Center said Thursday a mass of low pressure in the western Caribbean was becoming better defined and likely would become a sub-tropical or tropical depression by late Saturday. The system currently off the southeastern Yucatan Peninsula was expected to move northward. Heavy rains were likely across western Cuba, much of NOAA sees 10-16 named storms[WEATHER CHANNEL] See NOAA, A3 By Eryn Dion747-5069 | @PCNHErynDion firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ Looking at the new requirementscoming down to school districts this year as part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act and the amount of funding coming from the state for those initiatives, the numbers, according to School Safety and Security Chief Mike Jones, just donÂt add up.Presenting a breakdown of whatÂs required under the act Â„including having a law enforcement officer at every school, creating risk assessments for every campus, establishing threat assessment teams, upgrading camera systems and security measures, and all the training that comes with itÂ„to the Bay District School Board during a series of workshops Thursday morning, Jones said school safety has become a Âwhole new ballgame.ÂŽÂThis just about turned the whole state upside down,ÂŽ Jones said. ÂEverything is huge in proportion.ÂŽKnowing this was likely on the horizon, Jones and the School Board began laying the foundation several years ago for many of the changes found in the bill. The district already has its own police force and last year hired four more officers to cover elementary schools, and the districtalready has an opera-tions center with cameras on schools and buses that can be accessed at any point. But even with that head start, Jones said the deadlines for many of the lawÂs requirements are ÂunreasonableÂŽ and for other districts left scrambling from square zero, it will be impossible.ÂI know people who are starting at zero and people are calling me every day,ÂŽ he said. ÂI tell them, ÂYou donÂt have time to do it before Aug. 1.Â ÂŽOn deck for the school district is hiring 19 police officers to cover elementary schools and Margaret K. Lewis School. But hiring School Resource Officers is a more involved process than hiring regular police officers, requiring additional forms, more thorough background checks, in-depth psycholog-ical evaluations and special training to Âchill them out,ÂŽ as Jones said, and get them to realize the job is less chasing bad guys and more develop-ing relationships with the parents and students.ÂWeÂre working with little babies,ÂŽ Jones said.The districtÂs middle and high schools already have school resource deputies Money, manpower pressure mounts under school bill See BILL, A3By John Henderson522-5108 | @PCNHjohn email@example.comPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ The soggy forecast for the coming Memorial Day weekend was causing some hotel cancellations by Thursday, but many visitors still are expected to stay here this weekend, hote-liers said.Julie Hilton said the familyÂs five hotelsÂ„ including the Holiday Inn Resort Â„are normally filled up on Memorial Day weekend, but because of cancellations, room reserva-tions are down about 20 percent cumulatively.ÂAll of our properties have been getting cancellations for several days,ÂŽ she said.

** The News Herald | Friday, May 25, 2018 A3from the Bay County Sher-iffÂs Office, but all schools need to complete a lengthy risk assessment and Jones, as the designated school safety specialist, will need to coordinate additional emergency drills at each campus and coordinate with local first respond-ers to have them tour each campus every three years.With all the new officers comes a need for new vehicles, with Jones saying he is bidding on vehicles all over the region and theyÂve received donated cars from Parker and Lynn Haven police. Additional camera systems and infrastructure comes with the need for a larger operations center, which will be housed in the old nursing building near the Haney Technical Center campus.While the law comes with additional money, Jones and Superintendent Bill Husfelt agreed it wonÂt be enough to cover everything, and the school safety budget likely willneed to be bumped up by another $400,000 to $500,000 this year in per-sonnel and operating costs. Jones also will be required to oversee security at the charter school campuses, which alsowill struggle to afford their new safety requirements.ÂI know this is a shock, but the money weÂre receiving is not enough to cover what weÂre required to do by law,ÂŽ Husfelt told board members.Board member Joe Wayne Walker asked about possibly of installing metal detectors in schools to cut down on potential threats. Jones said putting in metal detectors isnÂt feasible, as they would need about three or four metal detectors at each school to keep students moving, and at least one armed guard stationed at every metal detector to monitor and confiscate dangerous items. Many other dangerous items Â„ such as plastic brass knuckles, mace, andPVC pipe bombs Â„ also would slip through a metal detector unseen.ÂWe canÂt put metal detectors in,ÂŽ Jones said. ÂWe donÂt have the money or the manpower.ÂŽ BILLFrom Page A1week. But for the most part, weÂve got a lot of people arriving. WeÂre full at all of our properties.ÂŽHe said the weather in Florida during the summer months often can go from sunny to soggy quickly.ÂAnd weÂve got great attractions in the area, like Pier Park, where people can go out and eat if they want to. I think weÂre going to see a full, busy weekend,ÂŽ Wohlford said.Bay County Tourist Development Council marketing director Catie Feeney said although there is rain in the forecast for some of the weekend, theystill anticipate large crowds. ÂThere is a com-bination of both indoor and outdoor activities that our visitors and their families can enjoy during their time on the beach, and we are excited to host them for this upcoming long weekend,ÂŽ shesaid.She said there might be a little dip in visitation this weekend because of the weather compared to last Memorial Day weekend.ÂBut weÂre still on track for a record-breaking year like last year,ÂŽ she said.Feeney said the March bed-tax collections on hotel and short-term rental stays were up more than 25 percent from last year, and strong numbers are expected in April.Philip ÂGriffÂŽ Griffitts, whose family for years owned the Sugar Sands Inn and Suites and the La Quinta Inn and Suites until recently selling them, said he knows exactly what hoteliers are experiencing right now, and it isnÂt fun.ÂThe phones are ringing. People are asking: ÂWhat is going on? Should I come down? Should I cancel? Should I reschedule?Â ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs not just the Weather Channel, but all media outlets are showing a rainy weekend. For those people in the tourism industry, that hurts. This is the first official kickoffÂŽ to the summer season.He said asmall fraction of people are deciding Thurs-day whether to drive to PCB. ÂItÂs not the smartest thing to do without a res-ervation on Memorial Day weekend, but people do it every year. Those people probably will not come,ÂŽ he said.Panama City Beach Mayor Mike Thomas said he hasnÂt heard about any rash of hotel cancellations because of the weather forecast, and people should not let this weather forecast stop them from coming. ÂJust enjoy the sunshine when itÂs out,ÂŽ he said. ÂLook at rain like air conditioning and sunshine like itÂs time to get in the water."Christa Medlock, an owner of the Palmetto Inn & Suites, said they still are expecting a solid weekend.ÂSo far, so good,ÂŽ she said. ÂIÂm actually surprised. WeÂve gotten a few cancellations here and there, but just a few. We are hoping for the best. We had a really good March, but April was down quite a bit, so we really need May to kick off the summer.ÂŽShe said some guests like to sit on the balcony of the hotel when itÂs raining, but others want to get out to indoor attractions such as the movies, WonderWorks, RipleyÂs Believe It or Not, Dave and Busters and RockÂit Lanes.Wayne Andrus, the owner of RockÂit Lanes, said he expects brisk busi-ness at his bowling alley and amusement game business this weekend. He said the business also has had a major renovation, which should attract more people. ÂWe just finished a two-year, $3 million expansion inside RockÂit Lanes,ÂŽ he said. FORECASTFrom Page A1Florida and the northern Gulf Coast into early next week. In the United States, the downpours could dampen Memorial Day, the unofficial start of the tourist season.Florida Gov. Rick Scott has directed state authorities to prepare flood response resources to help residents in the event of torrential rains.Forecasters said they still expect this year to see the kind of atmospheric and oceanic conditions that have been producing stronger Atlantic hurri-cane seasons since 1995.If an El Nio develops later this summer, it could suppress storm develop-ment during the seasonÂs peak months from August through October. El Nio is the natural warming of parts of the Pacific Ocean that changes weather worldwide and tends to reduce hurricane activity in the Atlantic.Warm waters feed a hurricaneÂs strength, while strong wind shear can pull it apart. If El Nio does not develop and water temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea warm up, that could fuel more storm development, said Bell, who was speaking at NOAAÂs agencyÂs aircraft operations center in Lake-land. That facility is the base for NOAAÂs Âhurricane hunterÂŽ aircraft that fly into storms to collect data used in storm forecasts. The six-month Atlan-tic hurricane season officially starts June 1.

In the exchange, she says McGrory asked her what she wears when she writes.The screenshot doesnÂt show the names of the people texting and itÂs unclear when the texts were sent. In a memo sent to employees Wednesday, the GlobeÂs man-aging director and president said they began investigating the allegation as soon as they were made aware of it, the Boston Globe reported. Linda Henry and Vinay Mehra said theyÂre seeking more informa-tion about the texts and Âexpect to have a resolution on this matter soon.ÂŽNEW YORKFacebook to label election-related Âissue adsÂFacebook is expanding its advertising disclosure requirements to cover all U.S. ads on polarized issues such as gun control and abortion rights, even if they donÂt endorse a particular candidate.Ads coming from specific candidates have already included a disclosure label since October. Facebook has said it would require that of issue ads from outside parties, too. But it hasnÂt pro-vided details until Thursday.Issue ads played prominently in RussiaÂs efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections. Twitter and Google also have been working to prevent elections interference, including by labeling political ads as such.Facebook says that when users click on the label on such an ad, they will be taken to a page with more informa-tion, including who paid for it and how many people saw it.LONDONCouple convicted of killing nanny, burning her bodyA London couple delusion-ally obsessed with a former boy-band star were found guilty Thursday of murdering their French nanny and burning her body on a bonfire in their backyard.A jury at the Central Criminal Court convicted 35-year-old Sabrina Kouider and 40-year-old Ouissem Medouni after six days of deliberation.The French couple, who had a turbulent on-off relationship, denied killing Sophie Lionnet, though they admitted disposing of the body. Each defendant blamed the other for the death of the 21-year-old Frenchwoman.Prosecutors say the pair killed Lionnet after becoming obsessed with the belief she was in league with KouiderÂs ex-boyfriend Mark Walton, a founding member of Irish boy band Boyzone.BERLINIAEA: Iran complying with nuclear dealIran appears to be comply-ing with a 2015 deal with major powers that was meant to stop it from developing nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions, the United Nations nuclear watchdog said Thursday.The United States pulled out of the pact earlier this month, and wants to impose tough sanctions on Iran, while European powers and Tehran say they are committed to keep working together to save the deal.The International Atomic Energy Agency said in Vienna, in its first report since the U.S. withdrawal, that Iran contin-ues to stay below the maximum level to which it can enrich uranium and appears to be ful-filling other obligations.However, the agency criticizes in the report that Iran is slow when it comes to Âcomplementary accessÂŽ inspections, which are part of the deal.FAIRFIELD, CALIF.Lewd conduct claims added to tortured kids caseProsecutors have added four charges of lewd conduct against a father accused of torturing his children in a Northern California home where prosecutors say 10 chil-dren lived in filth and neglect.The charges against the 29-year-old man were filed Thursday as he and his 31-year-old wife appeared jointly in Solano County Superior Court.The father faces nine counts of felony child abuse, seven counts of felony torture and four counts of lewd conduct on a child under 14.The mother faces nine counts of felony child abuse and one count of child neglect involving all 10 children. Both have pleaded not guilty.Prosecutors say the children were punched, kicked, strangled, shot with a BB gun and subjected to waterboard-ing by their father, while their mother did nothing to stop it.

PHILLIP/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Mary Clare Jalonick and Eric TuckerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Republi-can and Democratic lawmakers on Thursday huddled in classi-fied briefings about the origins of the FBI investigation into RussiaÂs meddling in the 2016 presidential election, a highly unusual series of meetings prompted by partisan allegations that the bureau spied on the Trump campaign.The extraordinary closeddoor sessions were sought by President Donald TrumpÂs allies and arranged by the White House, as the president has ramped up efforts to sow suspicions about the legitimacy of the FBI investigation that spawned a special counsel probe. Republican lawmakers have suggested the secret information would confirm unproved allegations that the bureau acted improperly when it launched the investigation into ties between Russia and TrumpÂs campaign.Initially offered only to Republicans, the briefings were the latest piece of stagecraft meant to publicize and bolster such claims. But they also high-lighted the degree to which the president and his allies have used the levers of the federal government Â„ in this case, intelligence agencies Â„ to aide in TrumpÂs personal and politi-cal defense.Under direct pressure from the president, Justice Department officials agreed to grant RepublicansÂ request for the briefing, and only later opened a second briefing to a bipartisan group. The invite list evolved up until hours before the meeting Â„ a reflection of the partisan distrust and the political wran-gling. A White House lawyer, Emmet Flood, and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly showed up for both briefings, although the White House had earlier said it would keep a distance.The White House officials didnÂt attend the full briefings, the White House said Thurs-day in a statement, but instead delivered brief remarks communicating the ÂpresidentÂs desire for as much openness as possible under the lawÂŽ and relaying Âthe presidentÂs understanding of the need to protect human intelligence services and the importance of communication between the branches of government.ÂŽIt was unclear how much information was revealed to lawmakers. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who attended the first briefing, said he wouldnÂt dis-cuss what was said. The House Intelligence CommitteeÂs top Democrat, Adam Schiff, also would not comment.Trump has zeroed in on, and at times embellished, reports that a longtime U.S. government informant approached members of his campaign in a possible bid to glean intelligence on Russian efforts to sway the election. The presi-dent intensified his attacks this week, tweeting Thursday that it was ÂStarting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in U.S. history.ÂŽ Republicans already eager to discredit special counsel Robert MuellerÂs Russia investigation used TrumpÂs complaints of ÂspygateÂŽ to press for answers from the Justice Department, whose leaders have tried for months to balance demands from congressional overseers against their obligation to pro-tect an ongoing investigation into ties between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.The Justice Department on Sunday asked its inspector general to expand its ongoing investigation to look into whether there was any politically motivated surveil-lance of the campaign and later agreed to reveal classified infor-mation to key lawmakers. Though originally scheduled for just two Republican House members, Intelligence Com-mittee Chairman Devin Nunes and Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy, Democrats strongly objected that a GOP-only intelligence briefing was inappropriate. The Justice Department late Wednesday scheduled a second briefing for congressional lead-ers from both parties and the same intelligence officials.That meeting on Capitol Hill was expected to include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr was also invited, as was the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence panel, Sen. Mark Warner, and Schiff, who at the last minute joined the first meeting.Also attending both meetings were Kelly, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats.Ryan defended the plan to have two meetings, saying they were the Âsame briefing.ÂŽ He said he had advised the administration to include Democrats but downplayed TrumpÂs attacks, saying he doesnÂt worry that the criticism will do lasting damage.ÂWe have strong institutions in this country,ÂŽ Ryan said. ÂTheyÂre going to endure any kind of test.ÂŽ Dem, GOP leaders get probe brie ngsDeputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein leaves a classiÂ“ ed brieÂ“ ng about the federal investigation into President Donald TrumpÂs 2016 campaign Thursday on Capitol Hill in Washington.

** A6 Friday, May 25, 2018 | The News HeraldPresident cites Âtremendous anger and open hostilityÂ in recent statement by the NorthBy Catherine Lucey, Zeke Miller and Matthew LeeThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ In a dramatic diplomatic turn, President Donald Trump on Thursday called off next monthÂs summit with North KoreaÂs Kim Jong Un, calling the can-cellation a Âtremendous setbackÂŽ for peace and stressing that the US military was ready to respond to any Âfoolish or reckless actsÂŽ by the North.Trump first announced his decision in a letter to Kim released by the White House, in which he cited Âtremendous anger and open hostilityÂŽ in a recent statement by the North, adding that it was Âinappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.ÂŽSpeaking at the White House later, Trump said a Âmaximum pressure campaignÂŽ will continue against North Korea and that he was ÂwaitingÂŽ should Kim choose to engage in ÂconstructiveÂŽ actions.He added that it was Âpossible that the existing summit could take place or a summit at some later date.ÂŽThe abrupt cancellation of the June 12 meeting withdraws the U.S. for now from an unprecedented summit that offered the pros-pect of a historic nuclear peace treaty or an epic diplomatic failure. No sitting American president has ever met with a North Korea leader.In the North Korean statement that Trump cited, a top Foreign Min-istry official referred to Vice President Mike Pence as a Âpolitical dummyÂŽ for his comments on the North and said it was up to the U.S. whether they will Âmeet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown.ÂŽTrump said the world was losing a Âgreat opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth.ÂŽBut he left the door open to the chance that the summit could yet be rescheduled: ÂIf you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write.ÂŽThe question now is how the message will be received. The letter could possibly make the situa-tion worse in a culture where saving face can be pivotal. Kim has both international and internal respect to maintain, and could take offense at Trump making this move after he released American detainees and destroyed a nuclear site.The North Korean leader is positioned by the North Korean system as the pinnacle of his nation and the venerated heir to the House of Kim.One U.S. official said the decision to call off the summit was made Thursday morning in response to the statement disparaging Pence and threatening nuclear war. A White House official said it was incor-rect to focus solely on the ÂdummyÂŽ comment, saying that the nuclear threats meant that no summit could be successful under such circumstances. The offi-cials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, testifying on Capitol Hill, said North Korea had not responded to repeated requests from U.S. officials to discuss logistics for the summit. He told the Senate For-eign Relations Committee the lack of responses was an additional reason for TrumpÂs decision.

The market dropped after President Donald Trump said he canceled a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but recovered most of those losses.Crude oil futures and energy companies fell as investors reacted to reports that OPEC nations may start producing more oil. Banks fell as interest rates edged lower, and car companies including Fiat Chrysler and Toyota dropped as the Trump administration considered tariffs on imported cars and car parts, a move that was criticized by the gov-ernments of China, Japan and the European Union.The Dow Jones industrial average fell as much as 280 points in the morn-ing, more than 1 percent, after Trump said the June meeting with Kim was off. In a letter, Trump said he was canceling the summit because of Âtremendous anger and open hostilityÂŽ in a recent statement by a North Korean official. Technology companies, which have led the market in recent years, took some of the biggest losses and defense con-tractors climbed.The market gradually recovered those losses, and Trump later told reporters that the meeting could still happen in June or later on. Stocks finished only slightly lower than where they were before TrumpÂs ini-tial announcement.Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for the Independent Advisor Alli-ance, said investors were troubled at first by Trump and KimÂs statements about a possible nuclear war, but theyÂve gotten used to it, which means the market doesnÂt react as much to their statements.ÂThe first time the market hears these threats thereÂs a large reaction and after that thereÂs less reaction,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs just rhetoric right now and thereÂs no actual military conflict, (so) these moves are kind of short-lived.ÂŽThe S&P 500 index dropped 5.53 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,727.76.

Nixed summit rattles stocksThis Â“ le image made from video March 18 of a mounted camera provided by the Tempe Police Department shows an exterior view moments before an Uber SUV hit a woman in Tempe, Ariz. In a preliminary report on the crash released Thursday, federal investigators said the autonomous Uber SUV that struck and killed the woman spotted her about six seconds before hitting her but didnÂt stop automatically because emergency braking was disabled. [TEMPE POLICE DEPARTMENT VIA AP] By Tom KrisherThe Associated PressDETROIT Â„ The autonomous Uber SUV that struck and killed an Arizona pedes-trian in March spotted the woman about six seconds before hitting her, but did not stop because the system used to automatically apply brakes in potentially dangerous situations had been disabled, according to federal investigators.In a preliminary report on the crash, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday that emergency braking is not enabled while UberÂs cars are under com-puter control, Âto reduce the potential for erratic vehicle behavior.ÂŽInstead, Uber relies on a human backup driver to intervene. The system, how-ever, is not designed to alert the driver.The findings, which are not final, should be a warning to all companies testing autono-mous vehicles to check their systems to make sure they automatically stop when necessary in the environment where they are being tested, said Alain Kornhauser, faculty chairman of autonomous vehicle engineering at Princeton University.Uber, he said, likely deter-mined in testing that its system braked in situations it shouldnÂt have, possibly for overpasses, signs and trees. ÂIt got spoofed too often,ÂŽ Kornhauser said. ÂInstead of fixing the spoofing, they fixed the spoofing by turning it off.ÂŽIn the Tempe, Arizona, crash, the driver began steer-ing less than a second before impact but didnÂt brake until less than a second after impact, according to the NTSB, which has yet to deter-mine fault.A video of the crash showed the driver looking down just before the vehicle struck and killed 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg in what is believed to be the first death involving a self-driving test vehicle.Uber said in a company release that it has worked closely with the NTSB and is doing an internal review of its self-driving vehicle program. The company also has brought in former NTSB Chairman Christopher Hart as a safety advisor. ÂWe look forward to shar-ing more on the changes weÂll make in the coming weeks,ÂŽ the release said. The company declined further comment.The report comes a day after Uber pulled its selfdriving cars out of Arizona, eliminating the jobs of about 300 people who served as backup drivers and per-formed other jobs connected to the vehicles. Uber had suspended testing of its self-driving vehicles in Arizona, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto while regulators investigated the cause of the March 18 crash.Sensors on the fully auton-omous Volvo XC-90 SUV spotted Herzberg while the car was traveling 43 miles per hour and determined that braking was needed 1.3 seconds before impact, according to the report.A diagram in the NTSB report shows that the Uber system determined that the SUV needed to brake when it was at least 65.6 feet from Herzberg; it was traveling 39 mph at impact. Korn-hauser said that was enough distance for the SUV to stop, or slow considerably to mitigate damage from the crash.Herzberg was pushing a bicycle across a boulevard in the darkness when the crash occurred on a part of the road that had no cross-walk and was not lighted, the report said.

This veteran served so that all Americans can peacefully protest against U.S. govÂt abuses. NFL players wonÂt stop. They will stay in the locker room during the anthem. And weak team owners will do nothing. My Steelers ownership included. Very sad. How pathetic is it when a sports league commissioner must write a order for athletes to stand for our national anthem. And then for the sitting athletes to state they are not disrespecting the flag. Unreal. Netflix, have you lost your mind? No one wants to watch the Obamas on Netflix. It would be like watching a bad movie. Quit running teachers down. Other than your parent they were the most influential person in your life. You are what you are today because of a lot of teachers!

The USA should perform a leveraged buyout of all countries in the Western Hemisphere to better control immigration. Trump uses whatever phone suits him. At least Hillary made an effort at security. NFL players must stand for anthem! So they have no rights when it comes to free speech! NFL just another suckup to Trump. We as a country are going downhill fast! SQUALL LINE ANOTHER VIEWAfter yet another school shooting, Americans are once again seeking explanations Â„ while many ignore the most obvious one. Last week, a 17-year-old gunman killed 10 people and injured 13 others at Santa Fe High School in Texas. Texas state officials and others have placed blame on everything from bullying to violent video games to schools with too many entrances. Yet these factors exist in other countries, but they donÂt see anywhere near the same level of mass shootings and other gun violence as the United States. Our country has a gun homicide rate nearly six times as high as Canada, nearly 16 times the rate in Germany and higher than most of the rest of the developed world as well. A major difference between these countries and the United States is they have much stricter gun laws and thus far fewer guns in circulation. Thanks to our lax gun laws, there is now estimated to be about as many guns in the United States as there are people. With guns so widely available, it is no wonder they are so often used in homicides, suicides and accidental deaths. Adding to the problem is the failure of some gun owners to safely secure their weapons. A recent survey from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found just 46 percent of gun owners keep their firearms in a locked safe, cabinet or case or use other tools such as trigger locks to safely secure their weapons. The Santa Fe High School gunman reportedly used his fatherÂs guns in the shooting. Texas is one of 14 states, including Florida, that have safe-storage laws, but the Texas law only applies to children 16 and younger. The safe storage laws there and in other states also give gun owners wide latitude, and violators are rarely prosecuted. Both laws and educational efforts need to be used to get more gun owners to lock up their weapons, while smart gun technology must be further developed to prevent stolen guns from being used by criminals or others. National Rifle Association officials have pointed out that a handgun and shotgun were used in the Santa Fe High shooting, arguing this shows restrictions on military-style, semi-automatic rifles wonÂt stop such attacks. But the attack might have been ever deadlier with those weapons. And while universal backgrounds checks on all gun sales wouldnÂt have prevented the Santa Fe shooting, that doesnÂt make such a measure any less important to consider. Unless our country does more to safely secure the guns already in circulation, school shootings and other gun violence will continue to happen here at a rate far higher than in any other developed country. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Gainesville Sun, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.Do more to keep guns safely securedOn TV crime shows like ÂCSI,ÂŽ ÂNCISÂŽ and ÂLaw & Order,ÂŽ science gets the bad guys. In real life, ÂscienceÂŽ often ensnares the innocent. Former NYPD Detective Harry Houck gets annoyed when TV shows make forensic science look infallible. ÂYou watch a detective get down and look at a body (and say), ÂHeÂs been dead for three hours now... (H)e ate dinner four hours ago,Â ÂŽ scoffs Houck. ÂI canÂt do that.ÂŽ On TV, experts identify killers by their bite marks. In real life, experts claim they can do that. The TV show ÂCold Case FilesÂŽ covered the trial of Alfred Swinton. He was convicted of murder because a bite-mark expert said his teeth matched a bite on the victim. ÂA perfect match!ÂŽ said Dr. Gus Karazulas, the Âforensic odontologistÂŽ whose testimony clinched the conviction. Karazulas sounded impartial and objective. ÂA forensic scientist is not on the side of the prosecutor or defense,ÂŽ he said on ÂCold Case Files.ÂŽ ÂWe look at the evidence.ÂŽ But Swinton was innocent. Lawyer Chris Fabricant helped get him released from jail by doing a DNA test, a much more reliable, less subjective form of science. Fabricant scoffs at bitemark testimony: ÂThe doctor was just wrong. ItÂs an unreliable technique.ÂŽ The more room there is for an expert witnessÂs unique interpretation of the data, the more that can go wrong, Fabricant says. ÂBite mark is similar to you and I looking at a cloud. I say to you, ÂJohn, doesnÂt that cloud look like a rabbit?Â And you say, ÂYeah, Chris, I think that does look like a rabbit.Â ÂŽ That kind of junk science puts innocent people in jail. I told Fabricant that I assumed most people in jail are guilty. Also, many people say crime is down because aggressive law enforcement has locked so many people up. ÂIf you think that maybe even 1 percent of convicted defendants may be innocent,ÂŽ replied Fabricant, Âwe have 2.6 million people in prison today, (so) we are talking about tens of thousands of (innocent) people!ÂŽ Fabricant works with the Innocence Project, a group that works to get innocent people freed from prison. Through DNA evidence, the projectÂs lawyers have helped free 191 people. That confident bite-mark expert who got Swinton convicted now admits he was wrong. ÂBite mark evidence is junk science,ÂŽ he told us via email. He resigned from the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. But police still trust bite marks. ÂLetÂs say one tooth is missing in the frontÂŽ of a bite mark,Houck explains. ÂYouÂve got to go, well, our suspectÂs got one tooth missing in the front. ThatÂs pretty good!ÂŽ Houck says heÂd demand other evidence. But not all cops do Â„ especially when scientific ÂexpertsÂŽ say someoneÂs guilty. Bite marks are just one dubious method police and prosecutors use. FBI researchers claim fingerprints are right more than 99 percent of the time, but that still leaves plenty of wrongful convictions. After terrorists killed 193 people in Madrid, the FBI matched a fingerprint on a terroristÂs bag to a man in Oregon named Brandon Mayfield. They arrested him, but Mayfield was innocent. Weeks later, Spanish investigators compared the prints more carefully and found the real terrorist. Other techniques are even less accurate: carpet-fiber evidence, gun tracing, use of psychics, hair matching. Why do judges and lawyers accept such dubious evidence?

** The News Herald | Friday, May 25, 2018 A9By Yanan WangThe Associated PressBEIJING Â„ No explana-tion has yet been found for a U.S. government employeeÂs report of abnormal sensations of sound and pressure, China said Thursday, as the inci-dent in southern Guangzhou city recalled the experiences of illness-stricken American diplomats in Cuba.ÂChina is already conduct-ing a careful investigation, and we have already given the U.S. preliminary feedback,ÂŽ Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said during a regular news briefing.ÂAt this point, we have not yet found any reason or clue leading to the situation described by the U.S.,ÂŽ Lu said, adding that China adheres to the Vienna Con-vention on protecting foreign diplomats.U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday that when the U.S. informed China of the incident in Guangzhou, ÂThey said all the right things and have demonstrated their willingness to help us identify the vector which led to this medical incident.ÂŽThe State Department has dispatched a medical team to Guangzhou, where Âsubtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressureÂŽ were reported by an American government worker.The department said Thursday that it is aware of only one employee who has been affected and that there have been no reports of private U.S. citizens experi-encing the phenomena.Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the American employee had shown clinical findings similar to patients with mild traumatic brain injury, known commonly as a concussion.The worker, who has been sent to the U.S. for additional testing, experienced Âa vari-ety of symptomsÂŽ from late 2017 through April, Nauert said Wednesday.The Chinese state-owned Global Times newspaper said in an editorial Thursday that the investigation into the U.S. government employeeÂs con-dition should be Âobjective.ÂŽ The newspaper said it was ÂinappropriateÂŽ for the U.S. to connect the incident with what American diplomats underwent in Cuba.ÂIt is completely unthinkable for there to be medical attacks launched against foreigners, particularly diplomats, in China,ÂŽ the Global Times said.ÂA sonic attack especially requires exceptional imagina-tion,ÂŽ the commentary said, asking, ÂWhat sort of ÂprofitÂ would make it worthwhile for China to take such a risk?ÂŽOn Wednesday, Pompeo told the House Foreign Affairs Committee that the medical indications of the Guangzhou incident Âare very similar and entirely consistent with the medical indications of the Americans working in Havana.ÂŽChinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who met Wednesday with Pompeo in Washington and then addressed a joint news conference, said China hasnÂt found any organization or individual responsible for Âsuch a sonic influence.ÂŽÂWe donÂt want to see this individual case magnified, complicated or even politi-cized,ÂŽ Wang said.Pompeo commended Chi-naÂs response and said it has offered to assist the U.S. in investigating.Last October, the State Department ordered non-essential embassy personnel and the families of all staff to leave Havana after at least 24 Americans experienced a range of mysterious ailments, often after hearing an unusual sound.While the symptoms and sensations have varied from person to person, some have permanent hearing loss or concussions, while others have struggled with nausea, headaches, concentration and common word recall.China says no reason found for US sta erÂs sonic conditionBy Jim VertunoThe Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas Â„ Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is shifting the focus of his meetings on school safety and mass shootings this week to those who have been closest to the recent violence, including students, surviving victims and one person who grabbed a gun and fought back.Abbott, a staunch gunrights supporter, called the meetings to look for Âswift and meaningfulÂŽ ways to prevent future violence fol-lowing the shooting last week inside Santa Fe High School that killed 10 people. The final meeting, slated to start Thurs-day afternoon, will include more than 30 people who can provide personal accounts of last weekÂs attack in Santa Fe and last NovemberÂs massacre at a tiny church in rural Suther-land Springs, Texas. Much of the first two days of meetings focused on student mental health and ideas about ÂhardeningÂŽ school campuses, including beefing up security and possibly arming more teachers.Most of those scheduled to attend Thursday are students, families and staff from the shooting in Santa Fe, a city about 30 miles south of Houston. Also invited are two survivors of the church shooting that left more than two dozen people dead, the churchÂs pastor and neighbor Stephen Willeford, who lives across the street from the church and has been hailed as a hero for grabbing a rifle and shooting back at the attacker.One of the students set to attend has said the Santa Fe shooting should not lead to new gun restrictions in Texas, where more than 1.2 million people are licensed to carry handguns and openly carrying rifles in public is legal.ÂSomething needs to happen,ÂŽ 16-year-old Callie Wylie said Monday as she stood at a memorial for her classmates who were killed. ÂBut I donÂt think at this time people need to be pushing politics on us and telling us, ÂOh, this is gun control.ÂÂŽAbbott has signed bills in recent years that reduce the cost and training needed for a handgun license, and expanded where handguns can be legally carried. The governor said Wednesday he could support stronger requirements for reporting lost or stolen firearms and quicker reporting to law enforcement of court orders that deny people access to guns.Still, few people expect proposals for any major new restrictions to emerge from this weekÂs meetings. Rhonda Hart, a military vet-eran whose daughter Kimberly Vaughan was killed at Santa Fe, said Texas should make it much harder to buy and own guns. She is not among those meet-ing with the governor.ÂYou should have to wait a week, have counseling, and walk through lines of protesters who tell you youÂre a murdererÂŽ to buy a gun, Hart said Wednesday.TexasÂ reaction to the Santa Fe shooting so far has been in sharp contrast to the response after the Feb. 14 shooting rampage at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people. Three weeks after that massacre, Florida poli-ticians passed a gun-control package after a lobbying campaign led by student survivors of the attack.Abbott has said his meet-ings are to explore ideas that could be pursued in the law or by executive order, but has given not timeframe for acting on any proposals. The Legislature doesnÂt meet again until January 2019, and Abbott has so far ignored calls from a handful of lawmakers to call them into special session.Texas governor to meet with survivorsEd Scruggs, Board Vice-Chair of Texas Gun Sense Â… Advocacy group that promotes common sense, right, listens to Texas Gov.

[ERIC GAY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By David PorterThe Associated PressA school bus driver with a history of driverÂs license suspensions caused a fatal crash on a New Jersey highway last week by crossing three lanes of traffic in an apparent attempt to make an illegal U-turn, according to a criminal complaint released Thursday.Authorities charged Hudy Muldrow Sr., 77, with two counts of vehicular homicide in the deaths of 10-year-old student Miranda Vargas and 51-year-old teacher Jennifer Williamson. More than 40 others were injured, some seriously, in the May 17 crash between the bus and a dump truck.The bus was one of three carrying students and teach-ers from a middle school in Paramus on a field trip to a historic site in New Jersey, about 30 miles away.Muldrow missed a turn, then merged onto Interstate 80 in Mount Olive, according to an affidavit filed by New Jersey state police. He quickly crossed three lanes toward a break in the median reserved for emergency vehicles to attempt an illegal U-turn, the affidavit says.Muldrow Âdisregarded the marked No Turn signÂŽ and turned his bus Âto the left in an apparent attempt to gain access to an official-use only access point,ÂŽ according to the document.It adds that Muldrow turned his bus Âso that it was positioned in an almost-perpendicular direction in relation to the lanes of travelÂŽ on westbound I-80.The crash, about 45 miles west of New York City, sheared the bus from its wheelbase and crushed the front end of the dump truck. The bus wound up on top of the guardrail on the east-bound side of the highway.In an interview this week on CBS, MuldrowÂs son said his father denied making a U-turn.Muldrow had his license suspended 14 times between 1975 and 2017, mostly for administrative reasons, according to state motor vehicle records. The most recent license suspension was in December for failing to pay parking tickets. He also had eight speeding violations between 1975 and 2001.At the time of the crash, Muldrow had valid driving privileges, a valid commercial driverÂs license and a valid school bus endorse-ment, according to the Motor Vehicle Commission. He had earned his commercial driverÂs license in 2012 and his school bus endorsement in 2013. The bus endorse-ment requires drivers to pass a background check, road test and a written test.In the last 10 years, Muldrow has had three moving violations, for not wearing a seatbelt, careless driving and making an improper turn. None caused accidents or led to suspensions, according to Motor Vehicle Commission records.There were no drunkendriving infractions on MuldrowÂs record.

Most represent areas with Brightline stops now in place or planned.Also signing the letter were U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., and U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz. Shuster is the outgoing chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.The letter followed a letter May 16 to Chao from U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., seeking to have the bonds suspended before All Aboard Florida can put them on the market.ÂFailing to do so compromises the integrity of the entire (private activity bond) program, and we cannot Rail project creates division By Eryn Dion747-5069 | @PCNHErynDion firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ Parents, administrators and local leaders were treated to a chance to see ÂAnglers in actionÂŽ during Deer Point Elementary SchoolÂs first Leadership Day on Tuesday morning, showcasing their efforts in the Leader in Me program.Principal Rebecca Reeder took a back seat and handed over the reins to fourthgrader Zoe Walker, who acted as emcee of the event and even gave a speech on the ever-shifting paradigms of education and how to create better lead-ers. Reflecting on the event, Reeder said she Âteared up a little bitÂŽ watching her students take responsibility and show off the leadership skills theyÂve been building all year.ÂIt really isnÂt about getting the most perfect kid; itÂs really not,ÂŽ Reeder said. ÂItÂs about teaching them strategies and skills and how do you overcome that.ÂŽReeder was an administrator at Hutchison Beach Elementary School when they started the Leader in Me program, which is largely tailored around author Sean CoveyÂs ÂThe 7 Habits of Happy KidsÂŽ and instilling those habits in students at a young age. She took the pro-gram with her to Deer Point two years ago, bringing it not only to the students, but to the staff as well.ÂWe create an environ-ment where people want to work,ÂŽ Reeder said. ÂWork-ing around people who feel that way, it makes it more enjoyable and easier.ÂŽEvery class has its own mission statement, Reeder said, and every teacher has their own personal goal posted in their room. The students become the teach-erÂs accountability system, she explained, modeling goal setting and, most importantly, how to celebrate when they achieve their goal. The students see a differ-ence. Zoe said Leader in Me has changed how the students relate to each other by bringing them closer together, helping with behavioral issues and solv-ing problems.ÂThereÂs been no more drama,ÂŽ Zoe said. ÂItÂs really been an improvement.ÂŽAs demonstrated Tuesday, Zoe said the Leader in Me program has given her and her classmates the con-fidence to stand up in front of their parents and even School Board members and give a speech.ÂI think this has given me more confidence for when I grow up,ÂŽ she said. ÂI want to start a business, and without this it would be really hard for me to start a business because I wouldnÂt know what to say and speak about it.ÂŽDeer Point students show o leadership skillsDeer Point Elementary student Zoe Walker on Tuesday looks over her speech for Leader in Me.

During that hearing, the North Carolina congressman expressed his displeasure in the bond approval.Mast and Posey represent districts that cover the Treasure Coast, where opposition to the rail service has been the most pronounced. Treasure Coast officials contend the service, which bills itself as the nationÂs first privately funded ÂintercityÂŽ rail system will create unsafe conditions at rail crossings and shouldnÂt be eligible for federal assistance.In February, Martin County, Indian River County and Citizens Against Rail Expansion (CARE) filed a federal lawsuit in Washington, D.C., calling the U.S. Department of Trans-portation ÂcheerleadersÂŽ in approving the Brightline project and requesting that the bond allocation for the West Palm Beach-to-Orlando rails be thrown out for being approved Âin excess of statutory author-ity and otherwise contrary to law.ÂŽMast issued a statement Tuesday noting that efforts to revoke the bonds are growing.ÂBecause Brightline failed to qualify for public financ-ing under the statutory definition of high-speed rail, Brightline instead sought and secured the public financing for this expansion (ÂPrivate Activ-ity BondsÂ) by claiming that their passenger rail train is actually a Âhighway,Â ÂŽ MastÂs office said.During the April hearing, Grover Burthey, deputy assistant secretary for policy at the Department of Transportation, said Brightline, as a surface transportation project, qualified for the bonds under a federal designation of Âhighway.ÂŽBrightline received $600 million in private activity bonds for the first phase of the project. The service, which started running south to Miami this past weekend, pursued an additional $1.15 billion in financing to upgrade existing freight rails that run north into Brevard County and to hook west to Orlando. At the opening of the line to Miami on Friday, Brightline officials mentioned an early 2021 target for reaching Orlando.After the April hearing, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., asked Chao for ÂclarityÂŽ on Brightline meeting federal requirements to qualify for the bonds, which come from a $15 billion pool established by Congress in 2005 to help finance infrastructure projects.Also, state Sen. Debbie Mayfield, R-Rockledge, asked Gov. Rick Scott to place a 90-day hold on the Florida Development Finance CorporationÂs handling of the tax-exempt bonds. The corporation is a state development financing authority that serves as a conduit for funding such as private activity bonds.No action has been announced on the request.During this yearÂs state legislative session, Mayfield was among Treasure Coast lawmakers who for a second time were unable to pick up support from outside their region to impose state rules (SB 572 and HB 525) about passenger trains, particu-larly Brightline.However, the Treasure Coast lawmakers were able to get direction placed into the budget (HB 5001) for the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability to examine existing and planned passenger rail operations, including high-speed passenger rail. A report, with recommendations on how passenger rail could be safely improved is due Nov. 1. PROJECTFrom Page B1 problems with retention and recruitment, City Manager Mario Gisbert said.Panama City Beach Fire Chief Larry Couch said most firefight-ers coming out of training are taking jobs in southern parts of the state.ÂThere are so many incentives that Central and South Florida are putting out. ItÂs hard to recruit,ÂŽ he said.The fire and police jobs had the biggest issues out of the surveyed positions, said Michael Misrahi, a consultant with Ever-green Solutions. He said the city is not doing a bad job, and the study reflects data from the cur-rent job market. ÂPublic safety has moved more dramatically,ÂŽ Misrahi said. Currently, a firefighter train-eeÂs salary range is $11.75 to $18.80 an hour. A patrol officerÂs salary range is $17.35 to $28.63 an hour, according to job post-ings on the cityÂs website.The update was compared to 13 market peerssuch asCocoa Beach, Daytona Beach,Fort Walton Beach, Gulf Shores (Alabama), Panama City and other municipalities to see if Panama City BeachÂs salary structure was competitive with the market average. The analy-sis was not done at an individual employee level, but as an overall breakdown. Compensation was based on aspects such as the jobÂs demands, and apersonÂs prior experience.A sample of jobs, which included 40 job classifica-tions,were reviewed and chosen at random. Salary data was col-lected at three levels: market minimums, entry level salaries; market midpoints, a salary point that is satisfactory to a proficient employee; and market maximums, a level for employees with high levels of experience and qualifications.At the minimum level, Panama City Beach was 0.3 per-cent below the market average. At the midpoint level, the city was 0.7 percent below, and 1.1 percent below the maximum range. The city was above average in such positions as administrative aide, building inspector, city engineer, customer service representative I and other jobs.Evergreen was hired in 2017 to produce the compensation plan update. The current plan was established in 2015.Gisbert said employees should see a pay adjustment in their June 19 paychecks. RAISESFrom Page B1interest and interviewed him, police reported. Simoneaux allegedly told officers the victim had consented to sex.ÂHe further explained she was Âtipsy,Â and he had to take her hand to help her walk because she was unstable,ÂŽ officers wrote.Simoneaux allegedly then told officers he left the area before the victim exited the port-a-potty, police reported.Despite SimoneauxÂs allegedly claiming the victim consented, police reported that was inconsequential.ÂThe victim was intoxicated to the point she was unable to provide consent during the time of the incident,ÂŽ officers wrote.Both men were arrested and charged with sexual battery. They return to court June 18 for an arraignment. RAPEFrom Page B1

BETTY IRENE BRYAN SHIELDS1923 Â… 2018FRANCES MAE ROBINSON By Mike SchneiderThe Associated PressORLANDO Â„ When city manager Gary La Venia arrived in Fruitland Park five years ago, his commute was on a two-lane road bordered by open fields on either side. Nowadays, that same route has become a four-lane road surrounded by commercial construction in various stages of development.Fruitland Park last year grew by more than a third of its population, making it the fastest-growing city, town or village in Florida, according to fig-ures released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. The next fastest growing cities or towns in Florida were other small commu-nities, primarily in Central Florida: Davenport, Palm Shores, Groveland and Polk City.Growth in Fruitland Park was driven by the expansion of the enormous retirement com-munity, The Villages, into Fruitland Park. The city increased from more than 5,900 residents to more than 8,100 residents from 2016 to 2017. The Villages expanded by more than 2,200 homes in Fruitland Park, which before the expansion was a bedroom community for people who worked in The Villages and home to snowbirds and families with roots dating back to the areaÂs citrus-growing heydays. The city is located about 50 miles northwest of Orlando.ÂChange is in the area,ÂŽ La Venia said. ÂEconomic development brings in money but with economic development comes more responsibility.ÂŽ]That responsibility includes expanding city services. The cityÂs police force has gone from 14 to 19 officers. The public works department has grown from 7 to 11 employees. Fruitland Park recently contracted with another nearby city to take its solid waste in order to handle the grow-ing population.In the past two decades, The Villages has been an engine of population and economic growth in a part of central Florida that his-torically was home to more citrus trees than people. It has helped make Sumter County one of the nationÂs fastest growing counties and the new home to tens of thousands of retirees from all across the country.The Census figures show Sumter County remained FloridaÂs fastest-growing county since the last decennial census count in 2010, growing by almost a third to more than 125,000 residents. But last year, Walton County in the Panhandle, and Osceola County in metro Orlando were the stateÂs two fastest-growing counties, increasing by more than 4 percent from 2016 to 2017.The stateÂs most populous counties remain unchanged from the previous year: Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties .Fruitland Park, Jacksonville lead Florida in growthTodayÂWHY WE CALL FLORIDA HOMEÂŽ EXHIBIT: Regular hours through May 31 at the Panama City Publishing Co.

Jackson850-522-5121 | @TyraJackPCNH firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ Bay District Schools and the Downtown North Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) are part-nering to purchase Bayside Church for $750,000, offi-cials said at a School Board meeting Tuesday.ÂThis is a really good partnership,ÂŽ said Superintendent Bill Husfelt. ÂThis is a chance for us to work with them. We want that (fine arts facility) to be used when itÂs built. The partnership has a lot of strong possibilities here.ÂŽThe district will purchase Bayside Church, on 13th Street, to build a parking lot for Bay High School, Tommy Oliver Stadium and a fine arts center at Bay High School. Husfelt said the church has been looking to sell the property for several years and the deal between the church, district and city has been in the works for about two years.ÂItÂs a pretty good deal and a great partnership,ÂŽ Husfelt said.The School Board and Bayside Church signed an agreement in April, that hinged on the board receiv-ing the $675,000 from the CRA. That payment was approved during a meeting earlier this month. The dis-trictÂs share of $75,000 will come from LCI (local capital improvement) funds.The Barbara W. Nelson Fine Arts Center will be built along Harrison Avenue, and will be joined by a new STEM building and the newly finished Tommy Oliver Stadium. Husfelt said the cluster of projects will help tourism, possibly bringing in collegiate track meets to Tommy Oliver or perform-ing companies to the fine arts center, and the new buildings will help that end of Panama City improve its image.ÂWhen this is done on Harrison Avenue, itÂs going to be the crown jewel,ÂŽ Husfelt said of the fine arts center.Husfelt said attorneys will create a written agree-ment for joint use. While a date has not been set for demolition of the church,it is likely to occur within the next year.In other business, the district:Â€ Approved a resolution for a $5 million revenue note for school security measures and equipment, which allows the board to borrow that amount from Capital City Bank. The board hopes to pay the money back in monthly installments in five years or less through LCI fund-ing, Husfelt said.Â€ The board approved the transfer of Darnita Rivers to Breakfast Point Academy, as the assistant principal pending the release of school grades; Gordon Pongratz, as the assistant principal for Mosley High School; Lisa Jones, as the assistant principal of Bay High School; and Helen Mitchell, as the new assistant principal at New Horizons Learning Center.District moves forward with church purchaseBay District Schools and the Downtown North Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) are partnering to purchase Bayside Church for $750,000.

Hatcher allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersec-tion of Ontario and Martin roads, and the ATV was struck on the right side by a Dodge Avenger driven by William Glenn Haney, 18, of Marianna.The collision caused the ATV to overturn, coming to a rest on the east shoul-der of Martin Road before catching fire. After the collision, the Avenger hit a ditch. Haney and his pas-senger, Eva Rose Pullin, 15, also of Marianna, received minor injuries. No charges have been filed, as the investigation is continuing.PANAMA CITYBay congressman looks to fund F-22 upgradesPanama City Congress-man Neal Dunn is looking for Congress fund upgrades for the F-22 wing at Tyndall Air Force Base.Dunn, R-Panama City, included an amendment to Âmodernize the F-22 train-ing wingÂŽ to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019 passed by the House, according to a news release from his office.ÂDr. DunnÂs amend-ment accelerates upgrades of the F-22 training aircraft to combat-ready F-22s as a priority of Congress as it appropriates funding based on the NDAA. Moderniza-tion of the F-22 aircraft will allow airmen at Tyndall to train on the aircraft theyÂll actually fly in combat,ÂŽ the news release stated. ÂThis improves their military readiness, and will increase availability of combat-ready F-22 squadrons that can be called upon to sup-port national defense.ÂŽThe NDAA still has to go through the Senate and a presidential signature before itÂs official.ÂWe have the most highly trained and dedicated mili-tary in the world. But, if we are not giving them the resources to maintain their planes and train in the most realistic environments pos-sible, we are doing them a disservice,ÂŽ Dunn stated in the news release. ÂOver the last year we have begun to correct that problem by rebuilding our military and investing in our service members. Modernizing the training wing of F-22s at Tyndall is another step in that process and is essential to the safety and security of the airmen we ask to achieve air superiority over battlefields around the globe.ÂŽPANAMA CITYHit-and-run driver convicted in 2017 crashA driver in a hit-and-run crash that left a motorcyclist with a broken neck has been convicted by a jury, according to official reports.Kevin John Butler, 60, was found guilty after a one-day trial Tuesday of leaving the scene of a crash involving serious bodily injury and reckless driving causing serious bodily injury.The jury heard from the victim, Jacque Carte, Flor-ida Highway Patrol Trooper Ronald Ward, Bay County Deputy Alex Young, Dr. Cyril Desilva and U.S. Navy Master Chief Tyson Hoover about the Febru-ary 2017 crash. Most of the witnesses testified Butler had been highly intoxicated at the time of the crash. It took about 90 minutes for the jury to reach a guilty verdict on the two counts, yet they acquitted Butler of a DUI charge.Sentencing is scheduled for July 9 at 1:30 p.m.Butler had been driving a Jeep on Thomas Drive about 10:45 p.m. Feb. 3, 2017, before the crash. Carte was driving a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the oncoming lane when Butler crossed lanes and crashed head-on with the motorcycle. Carte suffered several injuries, including a broken neck. Butler fled, crossed back over the median and the westbound lanes, struck a mailbox and hit a covered carport multiple times attempting to free his vehi-cle from the damage.Hoover came out of his condominium and attempted to stop Butler but, after freeing his vehicle, Butler drove back across all four lanes of traf-fic and crashed in the south side shoulder of Thomas Drive. Hoover ran over to Carte and rendered aid and then went to the Jeep and prevented Butler from leaving the scene. AREA BRIEFSButler

Fortunately for the former Mosley Dolphin, Yeager was a quick study.Yeager was named the Southern Conference Fresh-man of the Year this week and also made the All-Con-ference Second Team. Going into ThursdayÂs conference tournament game against Western Carolina, Yeager was hitting .330 with six home runs, 41 RBI, 51 runs, and a .896 OPS. He also sports a .961 fielding position with just nine errors on the season from his shortstop position.ÂItÂs pretty awesome,ÂŽ Yeager said of getting named the leagueÂs best rookie. ÂItÂs really a cool thing. There are a bunch of good players in this league and some good fresh-men. ItÂs a good honor. I knew there was a chance I could win, but I knew there were two or three other freshmen doing really well. It was kind of exciting for me when I heard the news.ÂŽThe transition to college baseball wasnÂt so smooth at first for Yeager, who was just 6 for his first 35 at the plate through 11 games. Yeager broke out of the early slump with a threehit performance against Holy Cross and added a big series against Kansas State in which he went 6 for 11 with three doubles, five RBI and six runs.That was the moment, YeagerÂs stellar season on lineSee YEAGER, C2Mercer shortstop RJ Yeager stands in the batterÂs box during a game against Florida in Gainesville on April 24. [TIM CASEY/ CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] By Pat DooleyGainesville SunThe game was over. Twice. But when it was truly over, FloridaÂs Janell Wheaton was sprinting to first with her arms in the air after a game-winning walk.For a team that set a team record for walks in a season Thursday night, maybe that was appropriate.Florida scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh, two of them on bases-loaded walks, to beat Texas A&M, 5-4,at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.ÂJust make her bring the ball up to me,ÂŽ Wheaton said of her game-winning bases on balls. ÂWith Gator Nation being so loud, it was hard to hear. I just imagined how she felt. ÂIt was awesome just to win and have your teammates run-ning after you.ÂŽThe Gators were staring down the barrel of a tough loss heading into the inning when Amanda Lorenz, who had three hits in the game, drilled a solo homer to pull the Gators within one.ÂSheÂs the best player in America,ÂŽ said Florida coach Tim Walton. ÂShe has it.ÂŽAfter a two-out walk to Kayli Kvistad, Jordan Matthews hit a grounder up the middle to second baseman Kaitlyn Alerderink. She lost the handle on the ball and then shoveled a toss to shortstop Kristin Cuyos, whobobbled the ball to allow the runner to be safe.The next batter, Jaimie Hoover, grounded one right at Cuyos, who let the ball go under her glove. Two walks later, the second by reliever Payton McBride, Florida (54-8) had an improbable win.ÂWe gave ourselves every opportunity to beat Florida in a Super Region on the road,ÂŽ A&M coach Jo Evans said.

ÂGame 4, we werenÂt making shots but defensively we were really good. Same thing tonight.ÂŽDraymond Green made a 3-pointer with just over minute left to get Golden State within one. Harden, who was 0 for 11 on 3s, missed his last one with less than 30 seconds left, giving the Warriors the ball back.Stephen Curry missed a floater and Trevor Ariza grabbed the rebound and was fouled with 10 seconds left. But he made just one of two free throws to give the Warriors another chance.But Gordon came up with his steal when Green lost control in the lane and added two free throws with 2.4 seconds left to put it away.Klay Thompson shook off a knee injury that had his status for this game in question to score 23 points and Curry added 22. A bruised left knee kept Andre Iguodala out for the second straight game, and Kevon Looney started in his place.After losing Game 1 of the series, the Rockets made the best of home-court advantage this time, thrilling a sellout crowd that included Justin Timberlake, Houston Texans star J.J. Watt and rapper Travis Scott.ItÂs HoustonÂs second straight win in the series after snapping Golden StateÂs NBA playoff-record, 16-game home winning streak with a 95-92 victory on Tuesday night.Golden State led by one to start the fourth before Paul got going, scoring seven points to power a 10-5 run that gave the Rockets an 81-77 lead with about 9 minutes left.Thompson made a 3-pointer after that and then officials reviewed PaulÂs first basket of the quarter and ruled he got it off after the shot clock expired, leaving the Warriors ahead 80-79.The Rockets were clinging to a one-point lead with about seven minutes left when Durant fouled Gordon on a 3-point attempt, losing one of his shoes in the process.

** C2 Friday, May 25, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Errin Haines Whack and Jesse J. HollandThe Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Â„ Now that the NFL is drawing the line against players kneeling during the national anthem, athletes protesting police bru-tality and racial inequality may need to find a new playbook.The question is whether they intend to escalate their protests in some way.ÂThe owners can try to prevent kneeling, but they open another can of worms,ÂŽ said Randal Maurice Jelks, professor of African and African-American studies and history at the University of Kansas. ÂImagine if players decide as a team to not come out for the national anthem. Or if one-third of the team decides not to come out.ÂŽHoping to quell the furor started by quarterback Colin Kaepernick two years ago, the NFL announced Wednes-day that players can stay in the locker room during ÂThe Star-Spangled BannerÂŽ but must stand if they venture onto the field. Not doing so will result in a fine against the team.The decision was lauded by President Donald Trump, who suggested Thursday in a Fox interview that Âmaybe you shouldnÂt be in the coun-tryÂŽ if you donÂt stand for the anthem.While NFL players who have supported kneeling in the past have not revealed their plans for this season, it is unlikely the new policy brought an end to the controversy.ÂThere were a lot of players who thought they could work with the league,ÂŽ said Rashad Robinson, executive director of Color of Change, a social justice organization that mobi-lized members to boycott the NFL and its corporate sponsors last season. ÂPlayers will have to make a decision about whether they speak out. These owners are not just trying to keep the league without controversy Â„ theyÂve picked a side.ÂŽLike protesters before them in past social movements, the players face a familiar dilemma: What to do when their public platform is taken away?From the American Revolution through the civil rights era and, more recently, the Black Lives Matter movement, history has shown that when one avenue of protest is taken away, activists often move on to other Â„ sometimes more disruptive Â„ methods of protest.Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, who attended the University of Nevada with Kaepernick and was among the first NFL players to join in the national anthem protests two seasons ago, said players donÂt care about teams being fined. But as for what he intends to do this season, ÂI guess weÂll cross that road when it comes.ÂŽHe called the presidentÂs remarks ÂdisgustingÂŽ and said that while he doesnÂt like the leagueÂs new policy, he under-stands it.ÂWeÂve got freedom of speech, right? Freedom to protest? Just because somebody disagrees or has an issue with something thatÂs going on in this country, that doesnÂt mean that they should pack up and leave,ÂŽ Marshall said in response to TrumpÂs comments.Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate said he expects the team will discuss Âa solution to stand for justice in America.ÂŽÂWeÂve got time to kind of brainstorm some ideas on how we could stand for justice and what we can do,ÂŽ Tate said.NFLÂs policy could mean a new playbook on protestsBy Tim WithersThe Associated PressCLEVELAND Â„ Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue was answering a question about BostonÂs defense on LeBron James during a teleconference when he tripped the security system at his home. A piercing alarm sounded.ÂUh-oh,ÂŽ Lue said Thursday as he punched in a code to silence the screaming siren.While Lue and his home were clearly safe, and the light-hearted moment passed quickly, it was also symbolic of ClevelandÂs urgent situation.The Cavs are in a dangerous spot.Beaten for the third time in Boston in these home-sweet-home Eastern Conference finals, Cleveland will face its second elimination game of the postseason on Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena. Game 6 is for everything. Except, of course, if thereÂs a Game 7 on Sunday in Boston.Fueled by fueled-up Boston fans who must feel some sort of birthright to see their cher-ished team play in the Finals, the youthful Celtics again showed zero fear or hesita-tion on their parquet floor on Wednesday night during a 96-83 win in Game 5 that was never in any doubt.Despite sho oting only 36 percent, the Celtics improved to 10-0 at home in the playoffs as coach Brad Stevens changed his starting lineup, shortened his rotation to seven and released waves of defenders at James, who looked worn down as he attempts to advance to the NBA Finals for the eighth consecutive year.Lue noticed early in Game 5 that James was dragging, but heÂs confident the 33-year-old, who was chosen All-NBA first team for a record 12th time, will be ready to save his season and prolong what could be his final games with the Cavs.ÂI know heÂll be ready to play Game 6, so fatigue wonÂt be a problem and an issue,ÂŽ Lue said. ÂIÂm pretty sure a lot of guys are tired during this stretch of the year. If I had to pick one guy and choose one guy to prevail, it would be LeBron. I know heÂll be great come tomorrow.ÂŽStevens started center Aron Baynes for the first time in the series and the move helped slow James, who had been crushing the Celtics when guard Terry Rozier switched on him. Rozier fronted James and got help from Baynes, the 6-foot-10, 254-pound Australian who contributed seven rebounds, six points and attitude.ÂWeÂve got a lot of tough guys on our team,ÂŽ Stevens said. ÂBut I think they all will tell you Baynes is one of the toughest weÂve all been around.ÂŽNow Stevens needs his team to show that same tenacity on the road, where Boston is just 1-6.The Cavs, on the other hand, are counting on James to rebound.He pushed as hard as he could in Game 5, but for one of the only times in what has been a transcendent 13th post-season, he couldnÂt summon greatness.He didnÂt have his usual burst. He bent at the waist grabbing his shorts, his breathing labored. During timeouts, he wiped sweat and perhaps some frustration from his forehead.James is tired Â„ for good reason. His teammates are draining him.Once again, James, who will play in his 99th game this season Friday, didnÂt get nearly enough help from ClevelandÂs other starters and Lue didnÂt do him any favors, either.James had 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. Solid, but sub-par by his standards and he committed six turnovers and missed some makeable layups. James still managed to outscore the rest of ClevelandÂs starters Â„ Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, George Hill and J.R. Smith Â„ 26-24.Lue inexplicably left Kyle Korver off the floor for long stretches and following the game he curiously explained that StevensÂ rotation Âkind of threw us for a loop.ÂŽAsked Thursday if he wished he had done anything differ-ently, Lue bluntly said: ÂNo.ÂŽ Thankfully, heÂs got James, who has six 40-point games and two buzzer-beaters in these playoffs, to save the season.HeÂs done it once already this spring, playing through cramps and scoring 45 points in a Game 7 win over Indiana. But heÂs played nine games since, and gotten less and less rest as the playoffs have pro-gressed. His body has been forced to handle more than he imagined.James has been down 3-2 in the conference finals before. In 2012, he faced a Game 6 elimination in Boston and scored 45 points with 15 rebounds and five rebounds as Miami won. Now heÂs trying to keep this flawed Cavs team alive long enough for another trip to Boston.On Friday, James will take the floor with his future hang-ing in the air. His second stint with the Cavs could end this summer if he opts out of his $35.6 million contract for next season and leaves again as a free agent, a decision he can delay again with a win.But before he picks home or Philadelphia or Los Angeles or anywhere else, heÂs got at l east one more game in Cleveland. Game 6.ÂNo question in my mind that heÂll bounce back,ÂŽ Lue said.LeBron, Cavaliers facing win-or-else Game 6Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James watches from the scorerÂs table near the end of Game 5 Wednesday in Boston. The Celtics beat the Cavs 96-83 and lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of other area players now playing pro baseball is asked to call The News Herald at (850) 747-5065 or e-mailPRO BASEBALL PERISCOPEYeager said, in which he started to feel like he was capable of producing at a high level against college pitching.ÂI really started feeling good against Kansas State,ÂŽ he said. ÂI wasnÂt getting a lot of hits before then. I didnÂt have a lot fall-ing for me, but I just stayed positive and kept grinding it out. I knew things would turn around at some point.ÂI kept grinding in the cages every night and every day before the game. I felt like it was all about attitude and staying positive and sooner or later it would change. YouÂve just got to keep working and it ended up changing me for the better.ÂŽThe result was an impres-sive hot streak that stretched over a full month, as Yeager compiled a .448 average with three home runs and 31 RBI during a span of 24 games to raise his average more than 200 points. He also has had double-digit hit streaks of 12 and 11 games, while adding five three-hit outings as well.As confident as Yeager was coming into the season, he said that even he couldnÂt have forecast having such success in his first year in col-lege baseball.ÂItÂs definitely exceeded my expectations,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂve been playing for a long time now and it has definitely been one of the best times in my life. At the beginning, I hoped I would be at this point, but I just really wasnÂt sure. I wasnÂt sure what the season was going to bring. I always hoped it would be like this and IÂm happy it ended up working out.ÂŽYeager, who hit .400 with six home runs, 10 doubles and 27 RBI as a senior in 2017 for Mosley, said it took him a while to adjust to the velocity and variety of college pitchers.ÂThe pitching is definitely different than high school, which I knew coming in,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou definitely get more off speed than youÂve ever seen in your life. YouÂve just got to go up there to the plate thinking youÂre better than the pitcher, whoever it may be and just stay positive in whatever you do.ÂŽYeager finished 1 for 4 with a run scored in MercerÂs 15-0 win over Western Carolina on Thursday. While Yeager and his teammates certainly would like to extend the season into regional com-petition, a fifth-place finish in the Southern Conference standings means that in order to do so the Bearswill needto win the leaguetour-nament with two more victories toearn an auto-matic NCAA bid.ÂItÂs been a good year so far, but it would be awesome to cap off my freshman year with a conference champion-ship,ÂŽ Yeager said. ÂIt would be awesome (to play in the NCAA tournament). ItÂs always been a goal of mine, especially to win this thing and go to a regional. WeÂll do everything we can to come out with a win in this thing.ÂŽ YEAGERFrom Page C1

Â„ Alex Ovechkin is thrilled, though hardly satisfied.The Washington Capi-tals star is headed to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in his 13-year career, eager to put more distance between the Eastern Conference champions and a lingering perception of Ovechkin and the Caps as playoff underachievers.ÂFinally we get what we want, be in the Stanley Cup Final,ÂŽ the 32-year-old Russian star said. ÂThereÂs still a lot of hockey to play.ÂŽOvechkin scored just over a minute into WashingtonÂs 4-0 vic-tory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final Wednesday night.Braden Holtby stopped 29 shots to notch his second straight shutout. Andre Bura-kovsky scored two goals, and Nicklas Backstrom added an empty-netter to help the Capitals close it out.Now, theyÂve got to do it again against the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, who are Western Conference champions in their inau-gural season. ÂI feel very happy, but weÂre not finished yet,ÂŽ Ovechkin said. ÂWeÂve been waiting for this moment a long time.ÂŽThe Golden Knights breezed through the Western Conference, scoring 43 goals and allowing 27 while going 12-3 to eliminate the Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks and Winnipeg Jets during an improbable run to the Stanley Cup Final.Vegas went 2-0 against the Capitals in the regular season, winning 3-0 at home on Dec. 23 and 4-3 at Washington on Feb. 4.ÂItÂs a great story. TheyÂre a good hockey team, they have a lot of good players, players from other teams Â„ I know a lot of people say we didnÂt want those players, but we all did,ÂŽ Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.ÂThe rules were the rules. They did a great job, theyÂve been galva-nized as a group. ThereÂs nothing tighter than that first-year group because thereÂs no pre-conceived notion. LeadershipÂs not in place, nobody knows where to live, all those things are galvanizing.ÂŽThe Golden KnightsÂ top scorer during the playoffs has been former Lightning forward Jona-than Marchessault with 18 points (eight goals, 10 assists). Alex Tuch is second among league rookies with nine points (six goals, three assists).Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, whoÂs in the Stanley Cup Final for the third straight season and fifth time overall, has been a huge part of the teamÂs success, too, with a 1.68 goals-againstaverage and .947 save percentage.Fleury and teammate James Neal return to the Cup Final after facing each other in the championship round last year Â„ Fleury with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Neal with the Nashville Predators.ÂTheyÂre deep. TheyÂre probably the most veteran team still playing in the playoffs. But theyÂve done a fabulous job,ÂŽ Trotz said. ÂTheyÂre a fabulous story. ... ItÂs a great story, not only for our game, but for everybody.ÂŽOvechkin, Capitals not yet satis ed

** The News Herald | Friday, May 25, 2018 C7ARIES (March 21-April 19) Â„ ItÂs minor things that happen today Â„ subtle, even. Your interpretation of events will inÂ” uence your destiny (and mood!) more than the events themselves. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ Certain people have p roven to be so much trouble for you that you know to avoid them completely. As for the unknown trouble sources Â„ itÂs just a sense you get, and today an extremely accurate one. Heed your own warning. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ You have an excellent rapport with a lot of different kinds of people. But what you have with one person is much more. ItÂs a deep and lasting connection, made possible by your intimate understanding of this personÂs pain and joy. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ You may be in line for a certain product, but itÂs not the product youÂre after, not really. You want the experience Â„ the dance of this. You want the story this quest is sure to give you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Â„ You wonder if the right sort of partnership could lift your life to a new place. What would the relationship have to be? What would you ask of the other person? There may be a way to embody these things yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Â„ The saying goes: ÂYou get out what you put in.ÂŽ ThatÂs not entirely true. If you wanted the same thing you put in, youÂd just keep it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Â„ If a tourist came into your life right now, that person would see some parts of it as romantic, fascinating and fun and other parts as uncomfortable and in need of a lift. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Â„ Most people wait for holidays and breaks to spend time with the ones they love, but you donÂt have to. You can create the moments; steal them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Â„ Believing is a funny thing. You sometimes believe in things you know arenÂt real because itÂs more interesting that way, or because everyone is doing it, or because what the belief encompasses is more real than reality. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Â„ There are a number of things that are far more contagious than head colds: manners of thought, emotional expressions, luck, attitudes, sayings, skills, abilities, viewpoints... AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ You want clarity, productivity, high energy and success. Well, you want at least three of those things anyway, and thereÂs one youÂre not so sure of. If you can convince yourself, the impediments will fall away. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Â„ For a discipline to make a difference in your life it must be constant in nature. Repetition is the only way a practice can become engrained as second nature and adopted as character.HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS DIVERSIONSÂTrivia FunÂŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

Check out the new, free JUSTJUMBLE appÂŽ Â SUDOKUAnswer to yesterdayÂs sudokuDEAR ABBYLong hours, high debt doomed marriage man canÂt let go ofDEAR ABBY: I was divorced seven years ago. My ex-wife, ÂAnnie,ÂŽ and I were married almost seven years and had what I thought was a great relationship. Then we bit off more than we could chew financially. I began working long hours to get us out of the pit, which created distance between us until divorce became inevitable. We tried working things out five years ago. It failed. Since then, I have been in a handful of relationships that ultimately went down in flames. Three months ago, I rekindled one of those relationships, but it ended quickly because, in a moment of passion, I called her by AnnieÂs name. I contacted Annie and shared it with her hoping for something. A month later, I lost my mother to lymphoma and contacted Annie as a shoulder to lean on because I had no one else. I have started talking to someone new, and itÂs going well so far, but I find myself dreaming about Annie and longing for her and the good times. How do I get over her? I find myself looking at mutual friendsÂ Facebook pictures just to get a glimpse of her. Â„ TORN APART IN TEXASDEAR TORN: Stalking your ex-wife on Facebook isnÂt going to get you what you want. It wonÂt win her back or help you to get on with your life. What WILL help will be to start talking with a licensed mental health professional who can help you begin to reorient your thinking and start living in the present rather than the past. Please consider it, because your emotional dependence on your ex is neither helpful for you nor productive.DEAR ABBY: I have a pet peeve with my husbandÂs family and am wondering if I am wrong. My in-laws often pick up a toothpick and use it while we are still seated at the dinner table. This happens even in restaurants. When they dine in my home, they leave their used toothpicks lying around. ItÂs disgusting. My mother-in-law is now starting to floss her teeth in public. I believe these activities should be done in private. Is there any written protocol about the use of toothpicks? I know my mother-in-law reads your column, and IÂm hoping she wonÂt miss this. Â„ ÂPICKEDÂŽ OFFDEAR ÂPICKEDÂŽ: I agree that good manners dictate oral hygiene should be attended to away from the dinner table, and so does Emily Post. In Emily PostÂs ÂEtiquetteÂŽ (18th edition), she writes, ÂToothpicks should be used in private, not as you walk out of the restaurant or, worse still, at the table.ÂŽ The same is true of flossing, in order to avoid having oneÂs dental detritus land on the table or, worse, on a dinner companion.

E4 Friday, May 25, 2018 | UNDERCURRENTSPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ The cycles of life are strange and the paths between lives are connected in complicated ways. HereÂs one example. It was 10 years ago this week Â„ May 31, 2008 Â„ that I had the chance to meet a man who portrayed a childhood hero on a show that premiered in 1978. The place was what was then the Marriott resort (now the Sheraton Bay Point Resort). The event was a sci-fi convention called ÂWrath of Con.ÂŽ The man was Richard Hatch, who starred in lots of TV and movie roles over the years, but was best known as Capt. Apollo from ÂBattlestar Galactica.ÂŽ I was thinking about this day recently because of two related things that seem to have happened almost simultaneously: a writing project that fell my way, and an actingrole that my son, Nathan, landed. The project was an assignment to review HatchÂs series of novels based on ÂGalacticaÂŽ as part ofa pop culture book from Sequart, ÂSomewhere Beyond the Heavens.ÂŽ A tight deadline and my usual misgivings almost led to me passing on the opportunity, but then I thought of what Hatch said that day in an improv acting class that I attended with my son, Nathan. (See video of the class in the online version of this column at NewsHerald.com.) ÂThe secret ... is being willing to face the fear,ÂŽ Hatch said. ÂThat means all the things that normally scare you are the doorways to your greatest joy, fulfillment, happiness and success. Why is that? Because the very thing that leads you home to what you really want to do in life is the thing that brings up your greatest insecurity about not making it. About failing. About rejection. We have an unconscious way of avoiding fear. What youÂre actually avoiding is the path that will lead you to where you most want to be.ÂŽ So, like an actor would tell you about any good improv session, when faced with a question or a situation you say, ÂYes.ÂŽ Nathan was 19, nearly 20, a student actor and playwright when we met Hatch that day. He was in his element in that class, and after it ended I had the uniqueexperience of seeing Hatch counsel my son about his acting.He put ahand on NathanÂs shoulder and encouraged him to follow his dreams.Nathanwent on to earn a degree in Theatre Artsand is currently back on stage, playing the role of Jesus in Kaleidoscope TheatreÂs production of ÂEndDays.ÂŽ He told me how nervous he was on the day of the audition. But he faced that fear, let it energize him. Nathan and the rest of the cast wonÂt be performing on May 31, but they will be on June 1, 2, and 3. (Details on the show can be found in the Calendar on pages E31-38.) A postscript: I got the chance to thankHatchat Pensacon 2014 in Pensacola. He was seated at an autograph table, but all the fans were lined up to meet Walter Koenig instead. I overcame my nerves and walked up to say hello. I reminded him of hisimprov class in Panama City Beach andtold him how great it was to see him talk to my son and encourage him. ÂI figure you hear stories like this all the time,ÂŽ I said, Âbut I just wanted to tell you how much it meant to me, as a father and as a fan.ÂŽ Hecame around the table, offered his hand and shook mine. He beamed and grinned. ÂI canÂt tell you,ÂŽ he said, searching for words. ÂThat means so much to hear that. We really donÂt hear stories like that often enough. Tell him I said to keep going.ÂŽ Hatch died three years later, on Feb. 7, 2017, of pancreatic cancer, but his lessons continue to resonate, and his actions still have lasting effects. Peace.A reminder to face what frightens youRichard Hatch talks to a gathering at the Wrath of Con at the Bay Point Marriott in Panama City Beach in 2008.

E6 Friday, May 25, 2018 | By Tony Simmons747-5080 | @PCNH. email@example.comPANAMA CITY Â„ Memorial Day has historically marked the beginning of the summer tourist season along the Gulf coast. But here in tourist country, residents and visitors haven't forgotten the reason for the national holiday. Originally called "Decoration Day" and celebrated for the first time on May 30, 1868, the holiday was designated for decorating the graves of those who died during the U.S. Civil War. It didn't become commonly known as Memorial Day until after World War II. Federal law changed the name to Memorial Day in 1967, and moved the date to the last Monday of May in 1968 (taking effect in 1971), marking the dayto remember and celebrate fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen and corpsmen Â„ and the freedoms they protected with their service. Here are a few memorial events in this area: COUNTY CEREMONY Monday morning will find the Bay County Veterans Council and the Bay CountyCommission marking the day's solemn purpose at the annual Memorial Day observance at Kent Forest Lawn Cemetery,2403 Harrison Ave., Panama City.According to a release from the commission, the ceremony is "a tribute to the men and women who have served our great nation and have given their lives to protect the freedoms we enjoy." The event is open to the public and admission is free. The ceremony will begin at10 a.m. Monday, May 28,with Bill Gobat, a retired U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col.,serving as the Master of Ceremonies. Gobat will welcome the public and introduce Lt. John Gibson, the base chaplain at Naval Support Activity-Panama City, who will give the opening invocation. The Mosley High School Marine Corps JROTC will present the colors, and Gobat will lead the Pledge of Memorial Day honors fallen vets GO & DOVeteran Tom Dellatore salutes fallen servicemen with his family, Paula Silcox (right, back) and his grandchildren Lilly, Maiya, Rose and Madden during the Bay County Board of County Commissioners and the Bay County Veterans Council annual Memorial Day Observance at KentForest Lawn Cemetery in 2017.

A ceremonial Wreath Presentation by the Marine Corps League, Detachment 065, will be followed by aRoll Call and Honor Walk featuring representatives ofvarious veterans organizations. Dudinksy will then sing "God Bless America." After recognizingspecial guests Â„ including widows, mothers and parents of deceased veterans Â„Cmdr. Jay Sego ofNaval Support Activity-Panama City will present the guest address.Chaplain Gibson will offer the benediction. A 21-Gun Salute will be performed by the Gulf State Guards Inc., a Civil War re-enactment organization. Stewart Corbin, orchestra member of First Baptist Church of Panama City, will perform "Taps," and the325th Fighter Wing from Tyndall Air Force Base will execute a jet flyover. The event will close with remarks and dismissal by Gobat. "As Abraham Lincoln stated more than 100 years ago, it is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this," said Douglas W. Huggan,commanding officer of Naval Support Activity Panama City, who was the ceremony's guest speaker in 2017. "He went on to say, 'The world can never forget what they did.' It is for us, the living, to be dedicated to the unfinished work of these heroes." As reporter John Henderson related that day, Huggan also praised the community for its military support. "I also want to thank Bay County for being one of the country's most supportive communities, not only to the active-duty veterans but all these fallen heroes today," Huggan said. "What a great community to serve in. These heroes fought for values that they believed in Â„ freedom. We as beneficiaries of this hard fought freedom need to continue these values and thank these heroes for serving for us."

E10 Friday, May 25, 2018 | Get your hands on gyros, stromboliBy Jan Waddy747-5072 | @PCNHJanWaddy firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ New York Pizza & Grillmixes a slice of the big city witha taste of the Mediterranean Â„ along the Gulf Coast. Owners Jennifer Mutluturk, a Bay County native, and Alper Mutluturk, originally from Turkey,opened the Pier Park restaurant on June 2, 2017. New York Pizza & Grill specializes in housemade dough and freshly madesauces for pizza, garlic rolls,and strombolis, as well as salads, hoagies, gyros,and burgers Â„ even a Gyros Burger. "We prepare the sauce, the dough is made fresh daily, and everything is cut fresh Â„fresh vegetables," said Alper, who added, "Two chefs came here from Turkey and trained." But Mediterranean cuisine isn't a far stretch for chefs Bulent Uzen and Ufuk Kurt, as Turkey and Greece are only separated by the Aegean Sea Â„a bay of the Mediterranean Sea. While Alper didn't want to give away the recipe secrets, a yogurtbased marinade is used on the chicken for the popular Chicken Gyros. "Wemarinate and grill the chicken, a Turkish recipe," Alper said. "A lot of foreigners come here and say it reminds them of their country." Alper moved to the U.S. from Turkey in 1992 to help his uncle, who had openedthe Great American Steak in Dallas, Texas, five years earlier. "As soon as I got off the plane, the next day I was on the grill,"Alper said."I came to Panama City in 2001 and opened Great American Steak in the Panama City Mall and opened a second restaurant, Backyard Grill." WhileAlper no longer owns any businesses in the Panama City Mall, he got in the bungee business in the mall in 2006 and currently operates the bungee trampoline in front of New York Pizza & Grill in Pier Park. "We used the have the bumper boats and sno-cone kiosk," said Jennifer, who added they have been running amusement businesses in Pier Park about nine years. "Before Dave & Buster's, we had the zipline, etc., and we had to move the bungee." Alperlived in Brooklyn a short time before moving to Florida, and Jennifer admitted she is a"ahuge Yankee fan," so thenew restaurant nameat Pier Park was a perfect fit. But Jennifer was a restaurant customer at Great American Steak long before she dated her husband. "We met at the mall," said Jennifer, who added they will be celebrate 10years of marriage in June. The couple's restaurant is similar to Alper's former restaurant at the mall, but it includes pizza Â„ available by the slice (cheese or pepperoni) or whole (made to order). "We're in the tourist area, more convenient for pizza,"Alper said. "Whole pizzas come in 10-, 14or 16-inch. That way if we don't have it ready, the customercan go as small as 10-inch and it pretty much costs thesame as it would be if you boughtit by theslice." And a few other American foods have been added at customers' request Â„ chicken tenders and chicken wings. "Pizza is the most popular, then gyros and strombolis. Some customers come from town and drive from town just to eat gyros," said Alper, who slices the meat to order off thevertical rotisserie.

| Friday, May 25, 2018 E11recently enjoyed the Original Gyros at one of the outdoor tables. The meat Â„ a mixture of lamb and beef with spices Â„ was tender and deliciously satisfying, yet easy to handle in the warm pita bread with tomatoes, red onion and tzatziki sauce. The menu also includes Veggie Gyros and BBQ Gyros. ÂThe Gyros Burger we created with gyros meat on a burger bunwith two different kinds of sauces, Fiesty Feta and tzatziki. We slice meat off and fold it into the bun with lettuce,ÂŽ said Alper, who also tops itwith red onions and tomatoes. While thepronunciation of ÂgyrosÂŽ widely varies among customers, he said, ÂGyros just means to spin in the Greek language.ÂŽ I plan to try the Gyros Burger on my next trip, if I can resist another Stromboli Â„ Pepperoni, Chicken Parmesan, Supreme or Philly Steak. At AlperÂs suggestion, I recently went with the Chicken Parmesan. (Besides pizza,he also reallylikes the Super Steak Philly hoagie Âall the way.ÂŽ) ÂI like the strombolis; theyÂre really good,ÂŽ said Jennifer, who admitted it was her favorite. ÂEverybody goes crazy for our garlic knots.ÂŽ New York Pizza & GrillÂs Garlic Rolls are made from the housemade dough and rolled up in the shape of a roll, rather than a traditional knot. They are soft, not greasy, and served with a marinara sauce (which is different from the pizza sauce) for dipping. ÂAll the sauces are made fresh. Even the garlic sauce is homemade,ÂŽ Jennifer said. ÂWe cut up the parsley, mix it with oil and butter a touch of garlic cut up.ÂŽ Butthen the Stromboli arrived, the top glistening with the garlic sauce. Overwhelmed at its size, I attempted to tackle it with a fork and knife. ÂI just pick it up,ÂŽ admitted Jennifer, who has suggested to customers, ÂYou can share one and just get a salad, too.ÂŽ The housemade dough was filled with perfect proportions of marinara sauce, tender bites of chickenand tons of mozzarella. I surrendered half-way through (and was ready for a nap), but when my cravings kicked back in around dinner time, I wasnÂt shy about just grabbing it with my hands to finish it off. For dessert, thereÂs even Baklava, sweet enough to share, plus Kataifi and Flogeres. And being locally run, the Mutluturks can make their own hours. ÂIn the summertime, itÂs long hours. We get here at 8 in the morning and prep everything,ÂŽ Jennifer said. ÂWhenever traffic stops is when we close, sometimes itÂs 12 or 1 oÂclock in the morning. In the off-season, itÂs 8 or 9 oÂclock.ÂŽ PIZZAFrom Page 10 FOOD & DRINK Alper Mutluturk slices the gyro meat off to order at New York Pizza & Grill. Pepperoni (and NY cheese) pizza is always available by the slice, or go for a specialty or create-your-own pizza with the 10-inch, 14-inch and 16-inch options.

| Friday, May 25, 2018 E15PANAMA CITY Â„ It was the second Florida Pro.Jake Wright and IhadnÂt spent much time preparing with the Navarre tournament the weekend before. We pickedtwo spots we had seen schools the last time we were out and launched with a hope. We launched 29th from Bay Point Marina at 5:30a.m. and the race was on for spot No. 1. The issue with the race: My boat tops at 38 MPH and everyone elseÂs was between 40 and 85MPH. On the way to the first spot, we were passed bysix orseven boats, but didnÂt think anything about it until we arrived at spot one to find another tournament boat already posted up on it. We kept running and headed to spot number 2; spot number 2 had 2 schools of reds with anywhere from 15 to 30 reds on them. Wedropped the trolling motor and began creeping the shoreline, fan casting and looking for the schools. The water was low, no wind, slick calm, and the reds hadnÂt pushed in yet. We pushed the bank for about an hour and decided to move and come back once the water was moving. We jumped about a mile away and crept the shoreline. I hadnÂt been to this spot since March but had usually did well there. I threw a paddle tail and Jake threw a gold spoon. We were searching and looking, trying to find the reds. We worked in and out of cuts, and the shoreline and only sawthree small reds and caughtfive trout. About 9 a.m.,we decided to go back to spot 2 and locate the schools if possible. We pushed the shore and saw a wake heading toward us. We poled down, cast a head of them and waited to feel the thump of a big red. The wake went by the boat, and it was the school of big reds, but we never felt a thump. We watched them move through, looked up, and another tournament boatcame around the point heading toward us. Apparently, that boat was pushing the school and had them spooked, so the reds werenÂt eating and kept going. We decided to move a little farther down the shoreline to a point that holds and away from the area the other boat already pushed. We crept to and around the point and only saw trout. It was 10a.m., and we had caught zero reds, and the ones we had seen were spooky. Jake and I decided to run to a guaranteed spot to catch reds, just not always big reds. We got to the flat that always has reds on it, dropped the trolling motor and beganour search. We continued throwing the paddle tail and gold spoon while fan casting and looking for reds. Iwas anticipating the bite every cast, since this spot always produces for us. I felt a thump, set the hook, a bunch of head shakes, and landed a trout. Cast again, thump, head shakes, trout. This continuous pattern landed ussix or seven 16to 20-inch trout, but didnÂt help us for the tournament. Now itwas almost noon, no reds in the boat, with a weigh-in at 3 p.m.and we werenÂt finding the reds. We decided we needed either chop or murky/muddy water. We made a 2-mile run to a murky bayou. We pulled onto a short flat that drops off to 6 feet within 50 yards of shore and usually has reds running the dropoff. The second cast on the drop-off, I felt thump, head shakes, and it was coming in easy. Jake asked if it was a red; I told him no, feels likeanother trout. It got to the boat, turned, rolled, and started running drag; it was a red who hadnÂt realized he was hooked yet. Ilanded the red; he was 25 inches at 5.6 pounds, a good fish. Wejust needed one more before 3 p.m. We continued to work that flat, Jake hooked up, and a lady fish started jumping. The lady fish threw the bait, the bait hit the water, I see red and his drag started screaming. He asked what happened. I told him the ladyfish spit the bait and a red picked it up. He landed the red at 24.5 inches and 5.32 pounds. We pushed that flat some more, Jake caught a 3-pound red, and we saw a 6-pound red that spooked. It was 1:30 p.m., the wind was blowing 15to 20 MPH, and the bay was capping. We just went back to weigh-in with the slow bite and the turn of the conditions. I know statically from last year and this year, we should be top10 with those 11 pounds. We weighed in 10.92 pounds, which wasnÂt bad, but wasnÂt great. We came in seventhwith first place weighing 14.79 pounds from St. Joe. It wasn't enough to get us a check, but to place top 10 with the field we compete against and the conditions was outstanding.Florida Pro 2 presents challenges LIQUID DREAM FISHING TEAM A n t h o n y W a t s o n Anthony WatsonJake Wright, left, and A.J.

[ARTWORK BY NELE ZERNITE] | Friday, May 25, 2018 E25 THE ARTISTÂS TOUCH Exhibition is on display at Center for the ArtsBy Tony Simmons747-5080 | @PCNHTonyS firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ Nele Zernite, the Lithuanian artist whose work is currently on display at the Panama City Center for the Arts, is fascinated by the concept of alien vistas. ÂOther skies do not belong to anyone,ÂŽ she said. ÂThey can be seen without lifting your head to the heavens. As they are revealed, they draw you in. Your eyes hold long to the glow of infinity.ÂŽ ZerniteÂs exhibit, in the CenterÂs Higby Gallery, features her latest works, as well as work from previous yearscreated in different formats. Many of them share the same theme,the notion of the existence of an ethereal world. ÂIn my experiments with various graphic media, I am searching for a new means of expression,ÂŽ she explained. ÂThe closest of all graphic techniques to me is etching. Although it is one of the most laborintensive art techniques, it pulls in with its aesthetic charm. Much like a taste for fine wine, the appeal of the etching technique is acquired over the long run.ÂŽ Her idea generating process, what she refers to as Âthe resonance and the flow of creative revelation,ÂŽ she refers to as a sort oftransfusion: ÂI continue to delve into the parallels between the course of the creative process and the result of the work of the art itself. The flow of color onto the zinc plate and the transfer onto paper is naturally geared for experimentation andunpredictable discoveries as every transfer is unique.ÂŽ In her studio, Zernite is often surrounded by afield of zinc plates and platelets, which she equates witha Âprotective metal shield with stained symbols of time.ÂŽ Each plate preserves a moment of truth, she said. ÂEtching has its own rules, laws and quirks in its search for a path of selfexpression,ÂŽ she explained. ÂIt begins with the visualization of the idea and continues as it crosses the boundaries of the printing plane. This type of art has an invisible genesis that requires far-reaching contemplation before it comes into light.ÂŽ Zernite experimentswith many printing methods, developing apersonal technique she callsÂNeig,ÂŽ a combination of different graphic forms approached witha Âpurposeful element of randomnessÂŽ that allows her to improvise or Âflow fresh bloodÂŽinto new works whileretaining acreative continuity from work to work. The dominating image of her work in recent years is that of ahuman figure on a long stem, which she says symbolizes the Âvacillation filled human nature.ÂŽ ÂWho can hang on, maintaining peace of mind and a balanced soul, is not easy, but such an opportunity is given to each,ÂŽ she said. ÂVertical lines, which can remind of both fishing rods thrown into incomprehensible horizons, as well as of peculiar antennas, which form a link between Earth and Heaven, between the past and the future, between life and death, illusion and reality, attesting to the state of feelings before the ÂGreat One,Â the ÂUnknown One.ÂÂŽ Sitting in the corridor outside the gallery last week, Zernite said she likes to try to look at reality Âfrom outside.ÂŽ She mulls theideas over time, contemplating different approaches and images, before beginning work. ÂThis technique for me is very good,ÂŽ she said. ÂI like this moment when you stop it,ÂŽ essentially freezing a moment in time.

Each week, locals Cole Schneider and Matt Greene share their different takes on new movies out in area theaters. For podcasts and more, visit MovietownMovieClub.com Cole: ÂDeadpool 2Â builds character I was infamously underwhelmed by the first ÂDeadpool.ÂŽ The superhero movie was ripe for a beating and although Ryan Reynolds did everything he could as MarvelÂs Bugs Bunny character, I felt the film surrounding him failed at almost every turn. Enter ÂDeadpool 2,ÂŽ wherein our lead character and immoral compass (shockingly) finds out heÂs best used as MarvelÂs Christ rather than its Bugs Bunny. Where the first ÂDeadpoolÂŽ ignored all hints of the despair underneath the mask, ÂDeadpool 2ÂŽ constantly, tangibly keeps it close. The anguish that under-girds his character is present throughout most of the crass humor and blood-soaked violence and gives it a punch the first iteration never threw. Certainly, itÂs a marked improvement over its predecessor, although it still canÂt escape its own storytelling pitfalls. Its meta-elements detract as often as they relieve, which is a shame because thereÂs much less bro-edginess and more actual jokes (give all the Oscars to The Vanisher). The drama is caught in between wild satire and candid sincerity, either of which could work much better if they were to fully commit. Its script is also far too loose; but still, where the first ÂDeadpoolÂŽ had only an opening 20 minutes worth watching, ÂDeadpool 2ÂŽ finds a richness within its character that sustains for probably all but a total of 20 minutes dispersed throughout. The fight sequences are better, too. Granted ÂDeadpool 2ÂŽ has nothing more than generic action scenes shot with a baseline of professional understanding, but thatÂs still a huge step up from what might be the worst shot action sequence of this oversaturated superhero era. If you enjoyed ÂDeadpool,ÂŽ I canÂt imagine you disliking ÂDeadpool 2.ÂŽ Rating: out of Matt: ÂDeadpool 2Â regurgitates ÂDeadpool 2ÂŽ is basically what you expect. Gleefully bloody sci-fi action. Incessant jokes about other superhero franchises. ReynoldsÂ inspired turn as the ÂMerc with a Mouth.ÂŽ Hilarious credit scenes on both ends that nearly outshine everything else in the film. ItÂs not necessarily worse than the original film; in fact, in some ways it may be a bit better, funnier and weirder. However, the sheer lack of sufficient originality makes it taste more like a microwaved chimichanga than a fresh one. In this X-Men spinoff, wisecracking Wade Wilson befriends a young, troubled mutant who finds himself being hunted by time-traveling villain Cable. Anybody familiar with time-traveling fiction, or have taken a theoretical ethics course, wonÂt be terribly surprised by any of the later reveals or moral complexities. The filmÂs real strength is in itÂs less ÂimportantÂŽ features. Clearly working to connect it more directly with the larger X-Men universe, the side characters are given ample screen-time, including super-cool newcomer Domino, whose mutant-ability of Âjust being lucky,ÂŽ makes her the most powerful hero since Superman. Director David Leitch (ÂJohn WickÂŽ) uses his flair for shooting action to solid comedic effect, including a standout parachuting scene that had me in stitches. But, of course, the star is still Ryan ReynoldsÂ Deadpool, whose most interesting power is probably his unique ability to see himself as a fictional character in a movie, constantly winking while everyone around him works in expected sincerity. But like I said, none of this is new anymore. Where the first felt like a subversive spin on the superhero genre, this is more like an Austin Powers film: a pop-culture-citingmachine thatÂs pleasantly diverting, but nothing to rave about.
