ÂItÂs not going to eradicate it, but itÂll keep it from spreading further Âƒ and it allows other plants to compete with it.ÂŽOn Wednesday, represen-tatives from the University of Florida were in Panama City distributing paper coffee mugs serving as makeshift homes for colonies of Lilioceris cheni Â„ better known as the air potato leaf beetle Â„ to homeowners looking for a little extra oomph in their fight against the air potato vine.With a name like Âair potato,ÂŽ the invasive vine might not sound like much of a problem, but it can grow up to eight inches a day and 70 feet long in its quest for sunlight and other resources, choking out other native or desirable species.ÂTheyÂre taking over more of the natural vegetation, like the azaleas,ÂŽ said homeowner Greg Presser, who has noticed the vine in his neighborhood in the Cove. ÂIt just shades out the other vegetation.ÂŽ Bower said sheÂs even seen the plant, which is native to the tropics in Asia, take over cypress domes.ÂAs high as you could see, it was air potato,ÂŽ she said.There is a lot of uncertainty about how air potato plant might have gotten to Florida Â„ theories include slave ships, as an ornamental plant and as a medicinal plant Â„ but what is known is that itÂs a pest.Scientists recognized it as a problem plant starting in the 1970s, and by the 1990s it was considered one of the Âmost Battle by beetleAn air potato leaf beetle walks over leaves on an air potato vine.

He was arrested in May 2016 after neighborsin the afflu-ent neighborhood ofDelwood Pointsaw a naked and distraught 16-year-old boy fleeing PaceÂs house, claim-ing to have been drugged and raped.

** The News Herald | Thursday, June 7, 2018 A3invasiveÂŽ plants in Flor-ida. ItÂs currently found in nearly every county in the state, as well as in Georgia, Alabama, Mis-sissippi and Texas.For decades, there wasnÂt a good way to con-trol the vine besides frost, but after 10 years in test-ing, scientists unveiled the air potato leaf beetle as a classical biocontrol in 2012.The tiny red winged beetle Â„ only about the size of a pinky finger nail Â„ spend their whole lives gnawing little holes into the vine's broad, heartshaped leaves. By the time they are done, the leaves resemble a worn out doily, and then shrivel up and die.In addition to eating the leaves, the beetles lay their eggs on the plant Â„ up to 2,000 eggs during their life cycle Â„ and will occasionally eat the tubers.Over 600,000 of the beetles have been released in Florida, according to Bowers. A study found the beetle has resulted in a 39 percent decrease in vine density and a 60 percent decrease in bulbil production.ÂIn places where we have released the beetles, where they have been real successful, and it allows other plants to compete with it because otherwise nothing can compete with this,ÂŽ she said, holding up a particularly large leaf. ÂYou put the beetles out, and next spring you see, ÂOh look, these other plants are coming back in.Â It gives them a chance.ÂŽAt the invasive species workshop at the UF IFAS Extension offices, Bowers gave out a Âfew hundredÂŽ beetles as part of the dayÂs festivities to pre-registered property owners struggling with air potato.However, people with concerns about air potato vines can still have free beetles shipped to their home. Those interested should email christopher.kerr@freshfromflorida. com. BEETLEFrom Page A1leave.Walking from the courthouse, the victim in the case, who is now 18, said he was disap-pointed by the outcome. He declined to comment further but will again testify when the case goes back before a dif-ferent jury.The teen and Pace both testified in the trial and gave starkly different accounts of what happened May 20, 2016, including how DNA from the teen ended up on PaceÂs genitals.Pace told the jury Wednesday heÂd been taking measurements of the teen inside his Delwood Point home to be sent off to a Tallahassee modeling agency. At one point, the teen jumped on the bed and began tying ligatures around his own ankles, Pace said, requesting to be completely restrained.ÂHe asked me to tie up his hands, and I said thatÂs too much for me Â„ IÂll tie up one hand in a slipknot, but IÂm not tying up your your other hand,ÂŽ Pace told the jury. ÂI said, 'I want you to get up and get free anytime you want, but thatÂs the most IÂll do.'ÂŽPace claimed no sexual contact occurred afterward and that instead, a trip to the bathroom a short time later was how DNA matching the teen was found on his genitals after his arrest.During his testimony, though, the teen refuted PaceÂs story and said he never jumped on the bed, asked to be tied up or consented to sexual contact with Pace.A day earlier, he instead told jurors that he had been the one to return from the bathroom to find Pace waiting with a drink in hand.ÂAbout 15 minutes later, I started feeling really light-headed,ÂŽ the 18-year-old told the jury Tuesday. ÂIt was a fainting feeling, like I was feeling depressed. It was weird.ÂŽIn the prosecution's closing arguments, Jen-nifer Hawkins told jurors that not only did the DNA evidence recovered from Pace point to his guilt, but so did the accounts of two wit-nesses who saw the teen fleeing PaceÂs home that night.The victim Âleaves all his clothing in the house and flees into the street looking for any help ... desperate to be hidden from that man in an absolute state of terror,ÂŽ Hawkins told the jury, pointing to Pace. ÂAnd someone else saw him seconds after all this happened.ÂŽWhen the teen later was taken to the hospital, a toxicology report revealed a blood-alcohol content of 0.233 percent and the presence of benzodiazepine and cannabinoids.During the trial Hawkins laid out the theory that Pace lured the 16-year-old through social media with the promise of a modeling career. Pace then arranged a meeting over lunch with the teen before returning to his house in an affluent neighborhood to take measurements for pre-sumptive modeling gigs. But once there, Hawkins said, Pace instead gave the juvenile a laced drink and took advantage of him.ÂAfter that drink, he was done,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs just flashes.ÂŽ Defense attorney Stan Peacock, however, pre-sented an alternate story line that the juvenile had approached Pace for modeling opportunities after knowing him for years. HeÂd at times done yard work for Pace at another of his proper-ties, Peacock said.Peacock told the jury that, as a 16-year-old, the juvenile was able to legally consent to sex. He also honed in on physical examination of the teen in an attempt to show no sexual contact occurred. And Peacock used a statement the teen made to law enforcement to accuse him of doing anything to become a model with an underlying motive of becoming rich.ÂHe was in it to make money,ÂŽ Peacock told jurors. ÂHeÂs able to tell the various kinds of modeling he was willing to do ... if he could just get a foot in the door from his photographer buddy Andy.ÂŽHawkins countered that the teen had been looking to succeed as a model with a promise of a career from a man he considered a friend.ÂThere is no question this 16-year-old wanted a job and that he would make money,ÂŽ Hawkins said. ÂHe went over there with hopes he would get found, make money and be able to get away.ÂŽThe jury, ultimately, could not definitively pick a side. MISTRIALFrom Page A1outbreak are trying school for the first time Â„ in very limited capacities Â„ while others have died or are struggling to survive, hindered by health and developmental problems.Dr. Epitacio Rolim of the Getulio Vargas Hospital in Recife, where many children with Zika-related birth defects are treated, said there are still myriad unknowns.ÂHow much they will learn or live, unfortunately, is a huge question mark,ÂŽ said Rolim, who during a recent afternoon spent hours injecting babies with Botox to ease muscle spasms.Beyond developmental delays, around 40 percent of the children with microcephaly treated at the hospital started show-ing new physical problems by the time they reached their first birthdays, includ-ing dislocated hips, which needed to be repaired surgically. ÂI only know of four who are walking,ÂŽ said Rolim.Zika began spreading in Latin AmericaÂs largest nation in April 2015 and exploded in 2016, with more than 260,000 cases of virus that year, according to the Health Ministry. In 2015, there were 960 confirmed cases of microcephaly and just over 1,800 the next year, the majority in the northeast. Then, thanks to what scientists call Âherd immunityÂŽ in hard-hit areas and public awareness campaigns, the number of cases of Zika and microcephaly plummeted. In 2017, there were fewer than 18,000 Zika cases and fewer than 300 children born with microcephaly. So far this year, Brazil has seen about 2,200 cases of Zika and 20 cases of microcephaly and other developmental abnormalities.For doctors, researchers and therapists, the Brazilian toddlers born with microcephaly a few years ago represent by far the largest pool in the world for them to observe and learn from.Seeing the children in school helps provide a window into the challenges children with microcephaly may face as they grow, but the institutions receiving them are often ill-equipped to meet their needs.Vaneide Campos, the principal where Joaquim attends school in Frei Miguelinho, a city of 13,000 in the Brazilian drylands, said she had to rejigger an already-tight budget to get a second special needs teacher.Joaquim has shown modest development. He can hold a pen and scribble on paper. He hears classmates recite letters of the alphabet, though he canÂt speak. He has also been included in school plays, all more than many other chil-dren with microcephaly.ÂWe have had more goodwill than training here,ÂŽ Campos said. ÂWe were not ready, but we knew we needed to offer a chance.ÂŽSchools and daycares at the Zika epicenter face similar issues, with teachers and principals learning as they go. Jose Wesley Campos, who will be 3 years old in September, attends school in the city of Bonito, in the state of Pernambuco, two days a week. He and three other children with disabilities are in a room with 14 normally develop-ing toddlers.ÂHe was our first case with microcephaly. It was scary, and we didnÂt know what to do,ÂŽ said deputy principal Viviane Simon, who has worked at the school for 20 years. ÂBut now we learn more from him than he learns from us.ÂŽIn this May 3 photo, mothers with their children, who were born with the Zika-caused microcephaly birth defect, sit in a waiting room at the Getulio Vargas Hospital, in Recife, Brazil.

** A4 Thursday, June 7, 2018 | The News Herald By Larry NeumeisterThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ Civil rights lawyers sued the U.S. Commerce Department on Wednesday to try to stop plans to add a citi-zenship question to the 2020 census, calling it an unconstitutional attempt to discriminate against immigrants.The Manhattan federal court lawsuit on behalf of immigrantsÂ rights groups blames racial animus for the recent announcement that the census will include a citizenship question for the first time since 1950.The lawsuit, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and others, claims the question intentionally discriminates against immi-grants and will increase fear in their communities. It alleges census participation will be depressed, diluting the economic and political power of residents in places like New York City; Prince GeorgesÂ County, Maryland; Houston; San Antonio, Texas; and the Flor-ida counties of Miami-Dade, Broward and Orange.The lawsuit predicts the citizenship question will result in at least two states losing a congressional seat. It alleges that the question was added unconstitutionally with discriminatory intent to diminish the political power and influence of Latinos, Asian-Americans, Arab-Americans and immigrant communities of color generally.U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced the plan in March, saying the question was needed in part to help the government enforce the Voting Rights Act, a 1965 law meant to protect politi-cal representation of minority groups. The Commerce Department is responsible for the census.The plan has resulted in several lawsuits, including one in California, the nationÂs most populous state with the highest concentration of foreign-born residents, and another in New York brought by 17 Democratic attorneys general, the District of Columbia, six cities and the bipartisan U.S. Conference of Mayors.The decennial census is required by the Constitution and used to determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives, as well as how federal money is distributed to local communities.The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Donna Lieberman, head of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said in a release that President Donald TrumpÂs administration was Âshame-lessly weaponizing the census to wage its war on communi-ties of color, immigrants and the poor.ÂŽShe added: ÂNew Yorkers refuse to be undercounted, discriminated against or driven into the shadows.ÂŽSteven Choi, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition, said the citizenship question Âis toxic to New YorkÂs four mil-lion immigrants and all New Yorkers, who stand to lose millions of dollars in federal aid and representation in Congress.ÂŽPlaintiffs in the lawsuit include the coalition, the American-Arab AntiDiscrimination Committee and other groups. Besides the Commerce Department and Ross, the Bureau of the Census and its director, Ron Jarmin, were also named as defendants.ACLU sues over plans for citizenship question on 2020 censusBy Mark Stevenson and Sonia Perez D.The Associated PressSAN MIGUEL LOS LOTES, Guatemala Â„ Emergency crews cautiously resumed search-and-rescue operations Wednesday in towns and villages devastated by the eruption of GuatemalaÂs Volcano of Fire, but time was quickly running out to find survivors of a disas-ter that killed more than 75 people with another nearly 200 still missing. Thousands of people dis-placed by the eruption have sought refuge in shelters, many of them of with dead or missing loved ones and facing an uncertain future, unable to return to homes destroyed by the volcano.Firefighters said the chance of finding anyone alive amid the still-steaming terrain was practically nonexistent 72 hours after the volcanic explosion on Sunday. The thick gray ash covering the stricken region was hardened by rainfall, making it even more difficult to dig through the mud, rocks and debris that reached to the rooftops of homes.ÂNobody is going to be able to get them out or say how many are buried here,ÂŽ said Efrain Suarez, standing amid the smoking holes dotting what used to be the village of San Miguel Los Lotes on the flanks of the mountain.ÂThe bodies are already charred,ÂŽ the 59-year-old truck driver said. ÂAnd if heavy machinery comes in they will be torn apart.ÂŽOnce a verdant collection of canyons, hillsides and farms, the terrain was now a barren moonscape. Rescuers poked metal rods into the ground, sending clouds of smoke pouring into the air in a sign of the super-hot temperatures still remaining below the surface, which firefight-ers said reached as high as 750 to 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit (400 and 700 degrees Celsius) in some places.At a shelter in the Murray D. Lincoln school in the city of Escuintla, about 10 miles from the volcanoÂs peak, Alfonso Castillo said he and his extended family of 30 had lived on a shared plot in Los Lotes where each family had its own home.Everyone was accustomed to the volcano, one of Central AmericaÂs most active, rumbling and spewing smoke, the 33-year-old farm worker said, so at first nothing seemed abnormal on Sunday. But then a huge cloud of ash came pouring out.ÂIn a matter of three or four minutes the village disappeared,ÂŽ Castillo said, smothered in what he described as a ÂseaÂŽ of muck that came crashing into homes, inundating people, pets and wildlife.The family holed up in a house that heated up Âlike a boilerÂŽ inside, then made their way onto the roof and then to the upper story of another, concrete home. After a cellphone call to CastilloÂs brother, rescuers arrived and brought the family to safety.But the life they knew was gone.ÂNobody wants to go back there. My children say they would rather be in the streets. ... There are many people who are helping us, but we have absolutely nothing. We could not get anything out,ÂŽ Castillo said. ÂFor us, there is no tomorrow.ÂŽStill, there were glimmers of a return to some semblance of normality as Guatemalans across the country donated supplies and local volunteers reached out to those in need.In an open-air patio at the shelter, people displaced by the volcano sat on plastic chairs as student hair stylists gave them free haircuts.Naomi Diaz of the Ciraiz Beauty Academy said they were moved to help because they saw people who had lost everything.

[OLIVER DE ROS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Tami AbdollahThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Lawyers representing nearly 200 Democrats in Congress plan to argue in federal court Thurs-day that President Donald Trump is violating the Con-stitution by accepting foreign state favors without first seek-ing congressional approval.The case argues that the president has received foreign government favors, such as Chinese government trademarks for his companies, payments for hotel room stays and event space rentals by representatives of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, and proceeds from Chinese or Emirati-linked government purchases of office space in Trump Tower.Ethics experts say the con-stitutional emoluments clause was created by the Founding Fathers to ensure that government officials act with the interests of the American public in mind instead of their own pocketbooks. Since then, it has been applied to the lowest of government of officials up to the president without a court challenge.ÂThis argument on Thurs-day will essentially put to the test the proposition that no one is above the law, not even the president,ÂŽ said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat who is leading the effort. ÂHeÂs thumbed his nose at the plain text and in doing so heÂs thumbed his nose at the American people.ÂŽUnlike prior presidents, Trump chose not to divest from his assets and he remains the owner of the Trump Orga-nization, a sprawling business empire with 550 entities in more than 20 countries that include branded hotels, golf courses, licensing deals and other interests. His Wash-ington, D.C., hotel just steps from the White House has become a magnet for for-eign governments, including groups tied to Kuwait, Bahrain, Turkey, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.The District of Columbia case is one of three that argues the president is violating the emoluments clause, which bans accepting benefits from foreign governments unless a majority of both houses of Congress consent.But ThursdayÂs case is dif-ferent in that the plaintiffs in the suit Â„ members of Con-gress Â„ are mentioned in the clause itself, and they believe that Congress not only has a right but is required, as part of their jobs, to weigh in on potential emoluments such as a $6.5 million condo purchase by the Qatari government or a Chinese-government owned companyÂs investment in a project that will include a Trump-branded hotel and golf course in Indonesia.ÂThese members of Congress are injured every time the president accepts a foreign government benefit, whether that benefit is a trademark from China or proceeds from a government buying space in a Trump property,ÂŽ said Brianne Gorod, the nonprofit Constitutional Accountabil-ity CenterÂs chief counsel who will argue the plaintiffsÂ case Thursday.Separate emoluments cases in Maryland and New York are based on a claim of com-petitive standing, arguing that the presidentÂs businesses are being used by lobbyists, gov-ernment officials and political groups to curry favor with Trump, and thus have an unfair advantage over other businesses. The New York case was dismissed and is being appealed. Justice Department lawyers have argued that such business activity, including hotel room stays, isnÂt an emolument.ThursdayÂs arguments before U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan will be solely focused on whether the lawmakers have standing to sue the president by showing theyÂve suffered harm from the alleged violation of the clause.In papers supporting the plaintiffsÂ suit, nearly two dozen former national security officials, including Madeleine Albright and Chuck Hagel, said that Âallowing private business deals with foreign governments to go undisclosed, unapproved, and unmonitored creates sub-stantial danger that national security or foreign policy deci-sions (could) be motivated by something other than the pub-licÂs interest.ÂŽThe Justice Department, which has filed for dismissal of the case, declined to com-ment. Its lawyers argued in court papers that the 198 Democrats suing the presi-dent are not being injured by him at all but by their col-leagues in Congress, who have refused to take up the emolu-ments issue.The Trump Organization did not respond to a request for comment.ÂThe enforcement of the emoluments clause is the only way we can preserve our abil-ity to do our job,ÂŽ Blumenthal said. ÂIf Congress does not have standing, no one does.ÂŽDems take Trump to courtIn this April 3, 2017, photo, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington.

** The News Herald | Thursday, June 7, 2018 A5By Josh Lederman and Matthew LeeThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ After striking an elusive nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration found itself in a quandary in early 2016: Iran had been promised access to its long-frozen overseas reserves, including $5.7 billion stuck in an Omani bank.To spend it, Iran wanted to convert the money into U.S. dollars and then euros, but top U.S. officials had repeatedly promised Congress that Iran would never gain access to AmericaÂs finan-cial system.Those assurances not-withstanding, the Obama administration secretly issued a license to let Iran sidestep U.S. sanctions for the brief moment required to convert the funds through an Ameri-can bank, an investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday showed. The plan failed when two U.S. banks refused to participate.Yet two years later, the revelation is re-igniting the bitter debate over the nuclear deal and whether former President Barack Obama was too eager to grant concessions to Tehran.ÂThe Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran,ÂŽ said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who chairs the Senate panel that conducted the investigation.And Republican Rep. Ed Royce, the House Foreign Affairs Committee chair-man, accused Obama of trying to Âhide a secret push to give the ayatollah access to the U.S. dollar.ÂŽNot so, former Obama administration officials said, arguing the decision to grant the license adhered to the spirt of the deal, which included allowing Iran to regain access to foreign reserves that had been off-limits because of U.S. sanctions. They said the public assur-ances that Iran would be kept out were intended to dispel incorrect reports about nonexistent proposals that would have gone much farther by let-ting Iran actually buy or sell things in dollars.The former Obama officials disputed that the momentary access to U.S. banks to convert funds through the dollar consti-tuted Âaccess to the U.S. financial system.ÂŽ WhatÂs more, they dismissed the report as another example of a faulty approach to Iran policy by Republicans and by President Donald Trump, who last month withdrew the U.S. from the landmark 2015 nuclear accord.ÂThey continue to malign the deal in an effort to justify President TrumpÂs unjustifiable decision,ÂŽ said Ned Price, who was ObamaÂs White House National Security Council spokes-man, referring to GOP lawmakers.Still, the report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benefits with-out playing into the hands of the dealÂs opponents. Amid a tense political cli-mate, Iran hawks in the U.S., Israel and elsewhere argued that the United States was giving far too much to Tehran and that the windfall would be used to fund extremism and other troubling Iranian activity.The Treasury Department license, issued in February 2016 and never disclosed, would have allowed Iran to convert $5.7 billion it held at OmanÂs Bank of Muscat from Omani rials into euros by exchanging them first into dollars. If the Omani bank had allowed the exchange without such a license, it would have violated sanctions that bar Iran from trans-actions that touch the U.S. financial system.The situation resulted from the fact that Iran had stored billions in Omani rials, a currency thatÂs notoriously hard to convert. The U.S. dollar is the worldÂs dominant currency, so allowing it to be used as a conversion instrument for Iranian assets was the easiest and most efficient way to speed up IranÂs access to its own funds.ÂYikes,ÂŽ one former Treasury official told colleagues in an email, as described by the report. ÂIt looks like we commit-ted to a whole lot beyond just allowing the immobi-lized funds to settle out.ÂŽThe Obama administration approached two U.S. banks to facilitate the conversion, the report said, but both refused, citing the reputational risk of doing business with or for Iran.Issuing the license was not illegal. Still, it went above and beyond what the Obama administration was required to do under the terms of the nuclear agreement, in which the U.S. and world powers gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nuclear program.The license issued to Bank Muscat stood in stark contrast to repeated public statements from the Obama White House, the Treasury and the State Department, all of which denied that the administration was con-templating allowing Iran access to the U.S. finan-cial system.Secret permit let Iran convert fundsIn this April 16 photo, Sen.

But demographics, technology and societal changes are threatening to create shortages Â„ not in, say, food products or consumer goods, but in people willing, able and trained to perform vital jobs that often save or shape lives. The challenges and consequences of an impending nursing shortage are being experienced nationwide, but particularly in Florida, which has one of the oldest per-capita populations in the United States. Fortunately, private-sector groups such as the Suncoast Nursing Action Coalition, and public institutions, including the State College of Florida and the University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee, are working feverishly to get ahead of the curve. SNAC has hired a ÂnavigatorÂŽ who is committed to helping nurses and would-be nurses advance their education and training efficiently and based on their needs; this kind of assistance is vital, especially for prospective students who are already busy and working. One of SNACÂs priorities is to increase the number of nurses with advanced degrees, based on evidence that the additional learning translates into better care. To that end, the coalition has offered scholarships, and SCF and USF have worked to streamline the pursuit of bachelorÂs degrees. These are admirable efforts, but insufficient statewide. FloridaÂs funding of community colleges and local universities, in particular, must be enhanced and the processes for training and educating health care practitioners re-examined. And, yes, at some point, Florida and other states should re-examine the practicality of expecting students in high-demand jobs to assume large loans and other debts in order to prepare for the stateÂs future. (By the way, these professionals pay taxes on good incomes.) The same can be said of other professions and jobs where shortages loom: physicians and physician assistants; teachers; law enforcement officers. It is crucial for private investors to leverage existing assets. Already, donors are supporting the Florida State University College of Medicine in Sarasota. Having a training ground in our region increases the likelihood that graduates will remain here and practice medicine. But more private and public support is warranted locally and throughout the state. Due to a convergence of factors Â„ including the retirement of Baby Boomers, a devaluing of the teaching profession and pay Â„ a shortage of motivated, high-quality teachers is already impacting schools. Cognizant of this crisis, the Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation has launched an initiative to ask and answer this question: Why is it so difficult for public schools to retain good teachers? In its first phase, the foundation received 789 survey responses from teachers in the Sarasota County School District. More work will come after the replies are analyzed. Whether the shortage involves teachers or nurses, or plumbers, for that matter, it is vital to seek advice from the practitioners Â„ before coming to Âsolutions.ÂŽ (A version of this editorial originally appeared in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune) Nursing gap demands state wide responseCan school shootings be prevented? There is no one size fits all solution to the problem of mass shootings, especially school shootings. Surely rational gun safety laws and improved and expanded mental health support in schools should be considered. This last event in Texas might have been prevented if the boyÂs father had secured his firearms better; but I well understand how the man would have thought he could trust the boy. Most of the situations have featured troubled youth who might have been diverted with adequate counseling. Some would have been prevented by closing loopholes on background checks. Some would have been prevented or at least delayed if there had been an age 21 requirement to buy a firearm. Others could have been prevented or at least slowed the shooter down if semiautomatic assault weapons and bump stocks had been outlawed. We need to talk to each other and listen to each other. I cannot understand anyoneÂs need for assault weapons or huge caches of weapons and ammunition. Actually, our economy is held hostage by the wealthy and powerful, aided and abetted by government; but guns will not get our economic power back, (if we ever had any). Wresting power from the super-rich needs to be done, but not by guns. I understand wanting a small number of guns for hunting or selfdefense, but huge caches and assault type weapons make no sense. I donÂt think they would succeed in defending ourselves from our own government, nor that that is needed. No cache of assault weapons and ammunition for a Âregulated militiaÂŽ can defeat the US military. Laws allowing civilians to legally purchase military grade weapons are outrageous and disgraceful. The men and women in government who refuse to enforce sensible gun safety regulations are morally bankrupt. Weapons that are specifically designed to kill massive numbers of people with brutal speed should be contained to the battlefield. The fact that they have made it into the classroom is a national disgrace. LetÂs talk these things over with one another. LetÂs consider way more money for schools and school counselors and rational gun safety laws.Harriett Myers, Panama CityPresident Trump's sound and fury on immigration has delivered close to nothing. Trump never lets up, thundering against "illegal aliens" as a criminal class while pushing his enforcers to treat the impoverished ones without mercy. But actually, illegal immigration is again rising Â„ and significantly. Here's the naked truth: Trump tries to look tough by brutalizing Central Americans without papers but avoids disturbing the companies that hire them. Every semi-informed American knows that the vast majority of undocumented immigrants come for jobs. And there's a proven system in place that greatly weakens the job magnet. It's called E-Verify, basically a database that lets employers easily check whether a prospective new hire may legally work in this country. Candidate Trump supported requiring use of E-Verify nationwide. President Trump put money for E-Verify in his budget but doesn't talk about it at all. There are three possible reasons: One, solving the problem of illegal immigration would deprive him of a potent issue. Two, it would greatly inconvenience many of his business supporters, who want the cheap labor. Three, it would shine bright lights on the reality that our economy needs more foreign-born labor, not just the tech-savvy but also lowskilled people eager to work. Eight states already require their employers to use E-Verify. Arizona started in 2008. Since then, the number of undocumented workers in the state is 33 percent lower than what was projected without the law, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. The other E-Verify states are Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah. Some of the governors complain that their companies are losing business to competitors in states that avail themselves of the lower-cost illegal labor. Florida Gov. Rick Scott says that's why he backed off his campaign promise to institute E-Verify statewide. You'd think that all these politicians would therefore back making use of E-Verify a national mandate. But you'd be wrong. As Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina explained, Republicans aren't calling for it because of the low unemployment rate. Let's digest that. If there is a shortage of labor but you want the labor to be legal, why not mandate E-Verify but bring in more immigrants through normal channels? The answer is that what many really want is more cheap illegal labor. A sensible approach would have the U.S. establish a panel of labor experts to continually monitor the economy's needs. The job would include keeping an eye on wages to ensure that employers provide decent pay. The panel would then recommend the number and skills of immigrants to be admitted. There would still be special programs for agriculture and other industries that need temporary help. E-Verify would move most immigration enforcement from the border to the employment office. Marry E-Verify to a realistic immigration program and the obscene show of separating children from their parents would close. There could be an orderly process for assessing asylum claims. More poor foreigners could enter via the front door. And law enforcement could concentrate on dangerous criminals. Lastly, add in comprehensive reform. That would mean legalizing the status of most undocumented immigrants who've set roots here while requiring all employers to use E-Verify going forward. Administration officials insist on doing the enforcement part only. But without E-Verify, they're not doing enforcement. They're only roughing up brown people for the cameras.

ÂIt is a measured and proportionate response to the unilateral and illegal decision taken by the United States.ÂŽSefcovic said that formali-ties in finalizing the list should be completed this month.

[FILE PHOTO] By Philip MarceloThe Associated PressBOSTON Â„ In this old cityÂs booming Seaport District, General Electric is building its new world headquarters, Amazon is bringing in thousands of new workers, and ReebokÂs red delta symbol sits atop the new office it opened last year. Three tech companies are testing self-driving cars and res-taurants and apartments have gone up virtually overnight.But after bad flooding this past winter, some wonder whether it was a bright idea to invest so much in a man-made peninsula that sits barely above sea level.ÂThat was the first winter where we really saw waves splashing onto the boardwalk and water in the streets,ÂŽ said Greg Hoffmeister, who watched the brief deluge from the third-floor Seaport office of his real estate firm. ÂYou start to think: Is that what weÂre in for, as sea levels rise?ÂŽAs they gear up to host the International Mayors Climate Summit on Thursday, municipal offi-cials insist theyÂre making the proper preparations in a city that was less than 500 acres when the Puritans settled it in 1630 but now includes more than 5,000 acres of man-made landfill Â„ one-sixth of its entire area.ÂWe know the water is going to be coming in through South Boston, pretty much from every direction, by 2070,ÂŽ said Richard McGuinness, a city planning deputy, referring to the neighbor-hood that includes the Seaport.A 2016 city report projected Boston could see 8 inches (20 centimeters) of sea level rise by 2030, with the Seaport District the most vulnerable area. By 2070, seas could rise 36 inches higher than in 2000 levels, affecting some 90,000 residents and 12,000 buildings and potentially causing eco-nomic losses of more than $14 billion, the report said.While some new Seaport developers are building with climate change in mind, many office towers and high-rise condos erected earlier simply didnÂt Â„ even after 2012Âs Superstorm Sandy slammed New York and showed what a bad storm could do on the East Coast. And environmental activ-ists and some researchers complain the city isnÂt moving quickly or aggres-sively enough to change development patterns.Boston officials say theyÂre looking at ways to revise the cityÂs zoning code, moving ahead on relatively inexpensive neighborhood-wide improvements, and assessing the need for the kinds of massive public works projects that Euro-pean cities built long ago Â„ such as a barrier across Boston Harbor that could cost $12 billion and take 30 years to build.The Boston Planning and Development Agency also revamped in October the Âclimate-ready check-listÂŽ developers have been required to submit since 2007 detailing strategies theyÂre incorporating into their designs to mitigate climate change impacts.But the requirement is still Âlargely proceduralÂŽ since the city doesnÂt require developers to follow through, com-plained Bradley Campbell, president of the Conservation Law Foundation, an environmental advo-cacy group.Boston officials counter that any design changes still need city approval and note that many newer Seaport developers are already preparing for the worst.General Electric, which moved its corporate offices from Connecticut to temporary digs in BostonÂs Seaport in 2016, says the first floor of the new global headquarters itÂs building will be elevated nearly 5 feet, or enough to protect it from the higher sea levels pro-jected by 2070. Electrical systems are also being placed on the second floor, and emergency generators will be on the roof of the 12-story building.The developers of Seaport Square, a 20-block complex of apartments, office buildings, and stores where Amazon has recently committed to leasing space for 2,000 workers, says its buildings stayed dry this winter, thanks to similar design features.ÂWe believe in science,ÂŽ said Yanni Tsipis, a senior vice president at WS Development.

ÂIf I donÂt have a vested interest in our school system, I donÂt know who does.ÂŽMoss has officially launched his re-election bid for his Dis-trict 5 seat on the Bay District School Board, representing Panama City Beach. So far, heÂs raised $500 in donations.Being the only school board member with children in the Bay District Schools system, Moss said, has given him a unique and vital perspec-tive on the board. And being a financial planner by trade and serving on the budget subcommittee, many of the financial-type decisions have been deferred to him.ÂI try really to do my homework and make good decisions,ÂŽ Moss said. ÂCould we always do a better job? Yes, but a lot of times, it comes down to priorities.ÂŽFor Moss, the biggest pri-ority looking back and ahead, is school safety. The Bay Dis-trict School Board shooting occurred on what was only MossÂs second board meeting ever, and it prompted him to push for an initiative in 2013 that expanded the School Resource Deputy program, which put a sheriffÂs deputy at every middle and high school in the district.ÂMaybe we were naive to think that something like that couldn't happen in Bay County, but it did, at our school board meeting,ÂŽ Moss said. ÂThat has been one of the things IÂve been trying to advocate for.ÂŽThat advocating would continue should Moss secure another term, as the district looks to expand its police force into the elementary schools and undertake costly, but necessary, according to Moss, security upgrades.When it came time to file again for re-election, Moss said he looked at other posi-tions and where he might be a good fit, whether at the county or state level.

His mother was a longtime para-professional with the school district, and Grady himself was named Mr. Bay High in 1994, with his sister taking the honor of Homecoming Queen two years later.ItÂs those roots and that pride in Bay High School that Grady says he brings both to the classroom, where he teaches math to seniors, and the court, where he coaches basketball. And itÂs why he was awarded this yearÂs Henshaw-Whitley Teacher Excellence Award, given to Bay High teachers who make major contributions to their studentsÂ lives.ÂSometimes when youÂre a coach, when you do other things, sometimes people overlook the pride you take in your teaching and your class-room abilities,ÂŽ Grady said.

They credit the increase largely to the Tourist Devel-opment CouncilÂs strategies."The TDC is constantly strategizing different ways to bring visitors to the destina-tion," said Catie Feeney, TDC public relations manager. "Panama City Beach is a pre-mier destination for spring travel, and providing multiple events for visitors to enjoy is crucial."That year, those events included the Seabreeze Jazz Festival, the inaugural Sand-Jam and an April 1 Easter holiday.April 2018 figures were at $1.02 million, up from 2017Âs $975,190. The March figures showed a jump as well, with 2018 numbers at $1.07 million compared to the $853,070 collected in 2017. All figures were based on a 3 percent bed tax rate, instead of the current 5 percent rate, which the TDC does to accurately compare prices before and after 2009 when the rate changed.The tax is a 5 percent bed tax gathered from a taxing juris-diction within Bay County on short-term rental prop-erties. Tax dollars go toward Strong spring in PCBBY THE NUMBERSAll numbers were based on a 3 percent bed tax rate, which was the tax rate until mid 2009. The current rate is at 5 percent, so 3 percent showings are used to fairly compare the years.

Peters and Bob Rackleff are campaigning for the Democratic primary elec-tion, which will be held Aug. 28. The winner then will face Dunn in the general election Nov. 6.ÂIÂm a big proponent of the $15-an-hour minimum wage, and thatÂs for full-time employees," Peters said. "For part-time employees, I believe it ought to be $16.50 to stop this game that employ-ers play where they hire seven part-time workers instead of three full-time folks to avoid paying benefits.ÂI believe that itÂs very important that we provide health care for everybody, regardless of means or socio-economic background.

He wrote that he was standing knee-deep in the Gulf of Mexico at a sand bar Friday when he was swept out to sea in a rip current.He said he was rescued by two good Samaritans, who pulled him to the beach right as a lifeguard arrived.According to the post, the man said the lifeguard told him six people had drowned in the previous two days. The man who almost drowned lauded the men who saved him, calling them Âheroes,ÂŽ and warned people about the dangers of swimming in the Gulf.The post had been shared more than 33,000 times as of Tuesday afternoon.But David Vaughan, Walton CountyÂs beach safety director, said Tuesday morn-ing that while he appreciated the post spreading the mes-sage about the dangers of rip currents and the importance of swimming safely, the part about six people drowning was Âabsolutely false.ÂŽÂWe pulled a ton of people out of the water,ÂŽ Vaughan said. ÂWe had a very, very busy week. But six people did not die in Walton County.ÂŽAccording to Vaughan, lifeguards oversaw 232,607 visitors on guarded beaches between May 27 and June 3. Of those, 3 days were double red flag days, mean-ing the water was closed to swimmers. The remaining days were single red flag days.During that time, Vaughan said lifeguards made 226 public assists, which is when guards have to go in the water to help people get out, and 22 full-blown water rescues. He said there were no fatalities.However, a 28-year-old man did die after he was pulled from the water near the 700 block of Scenic Gulf Drive in Miramar Beach on May 25. Vaughan said it was the first swimming fatality of the season in Walton County, and that the man was swimming in the eve-ning after lifeguards had left the beach.He said he did not know the victimÂs name or where he was from. In Bay County, a 61-year-old Georgia man died May 30 after going snorkeling in the Gulf of Mexico while first responders spent much of the day trying to keep beach-goers out of dangerous rip currents in the wake of Sub-tropical Storm Alberto. On May 25, a 31-year-old male was pulled from the Gulf by several bystanders behind Tropic Winds Resort. And on May 19, a 5-year-old boy from Dothan, Ala., died after being pulled from the Gulf of Mexico behind Sterling Breeze condominiums.Vaughan said he has fielded calls from national media outlets since the Facebook post about the supposed six fatalities went viral.ÂThe bottom line is that it was a very, very challenging week, and our lifeguards did an amazing job of keeping the word out and keeping people safe,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe appreci-ate the overall message of what this post is trying to convey.ÂŽWalton o cial refutes Facebook post claiming 6 drowningsBy Seth BorensteinThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Tropical cyclones around the world are moving slightly slower over land and water, dumping more rain as they stall, just as Hurricane Harvey did last year, a new study found.This isnÂt about how pow-erful a stormÂs winds are, just how fast it chugs along. Storms in the last few years Â„ before 2017Âs Harvey Â„ were moving about 10 percent slower globally than in the late 1940s and 1950s, accord-ing to a study published in Nature Wednesday. Storms worldwide in 2016 moved about 1.25 mph slower than 60 some years ago.In the Atlantic Ocean basin, the slowdown was not dramatic, just 6 percent. But when Atlantic storms hit land Â„ like Harvey Â„ the study said the slowdown is a significant 20 percent. Atlan-tic storms that make landfall moved 2.9 mph slower than 60 some years ago, it said.ÂThe slower a storm goes, the more rain itÂs going to dump in any particular area,ÂŽ said study author James Kossin, a government climate scientist. ÂHurricane Harvey last year was a great example of what a slow storm can do.ÂŽHarvey, which killed at least 68 people, dropped a record 60 inches of rain in parts of southeastern Texas, according to the National Hurricane Center. Kossin started his research before the 2017 season, stop-ping his analysis at 2016. Adding last yearÂs storms would have made the slowdown a bit more prominent, he said.Unhurried hurricanes also mean strong winds blowing more often over the same place and possibly more storm surge, Kossin said.The trend has all the signs of human-caused climate change, Kossin said. But the study did not look at causes by using computer models to simulate the Earth with and without warming. It is based solely on past observations, he said.Another study that came out recently, using computer models, concluded future storm movements will slow because of climate change.Climate change is tinkering with and slowing down atmospheric circulation pat-terns Â„ the wind currents that move weather along, Kossin said.Outside scientists were skeptical. ThatÂs mostly because data before the 1970s is not reliable so it is hard to make such conclusions, said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy.Kossin acknowledged problems with pre-1970s data but said most of it deals with how strong storms are. Older data on location, and thus movement, are more reliable, Kossin said.ÂKossin is right that a 10 percent change in tropical cyclone motion would be an important change due to its effect on accumulated precipitation,ÂŽ Texas state climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon said in an email. ÂI just need more convinc-ing that there actually has been a 10 percent motion change.ÂŽStudy says tropical cyclones slowingA Facebook post went viral after it shared false information about drownings in South Walton County.

He filed his paperwork to run Friday, but didnÂt immediately make a public announcement about the run.ItÂs not the first politi-cal run for Palm Beach real estate tycoon, who lost a U.S. Senate primary eight years ago despite spending $30 million of his own money.Greene ran for Senate in 2010 and lost by a landslide to then-U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek despite far outspending the congressman. His campaign was dogged by distractions, including reports that former boxer and convicted rapist Mike Tyson was the best man at his wedding, and Hol-lywood Madam Heidi Fleiss was his house guest for a year. There were also news reports about parties on his yacht, which once made a stop in Cuba while the U.S. had a travel ban to the island.After he lost, he sued whatÂs now the Tampa Bay Times, accusing the newspaper of libel during its coverage of the campaign. The newspaper settled the lawsuit in 2016.Forbes magazine lists Greene as being worth $3.8 billion, with 3,500 apartments in Los Angeles, 2,500 units in Florida, three buildings in Manhattan and five homes.Greene didnÂt immedi-ately return a voicemail seeking comment on his campaign.Two years ago, Greene opened a private school in Palm Beach serving pre-school through grade 6. It has an enrollment of 85 and is expanding to grades 7 and 8 this year.Greene wonÂt be the only candidate spending millions of their own money on the race. Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine has already spent about $8 million, and Orlando businessman Chris King has spent about $2.3 million on the race.Other Democrats run-ning are former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.Republicans running include Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis.Republican Gov.

** B4 Thursday, June 7, 2018 | The News HeraldHe is accused of beating his wife, son with a metal mallet By Annie Blanks 315-4450 | @DestinLogAnnie email@example.com NICEVILLE Â„ Judson Wood, the man charged with attempted homi-cide in the metal mallet beatings of his wife and adult disabled son in February, has been declared incom-petent to stand trial and has been sent to Florida State Hospital in Chat-tahoochee for treatment.Additionally, authorities might upgrade one of his charges to second-degree murder, pending the autopsy results of his wife, 68-year-old Sharron Wood, who passed away in April.Judson was arrested on Feb. 6 after authorities say he tried to kill his wife and 49-year-old disabled son, David, with a metal mallet while they slept in their beds at their home at 1911 Benton Ave. in Niceville. Sharron and David were taken to hospitals with critical injuries, and Sharron had to undergo extensive facial reconstruction. Both were eventually transferred to a rehabilitation facility, according to the Okaloosa County SheriffÂs Office.According to her obitu-ary, Sharron died on April 20.ÂSharron was instrumental in the lives of many,ÂŽ her obituary read. ÂSharron retired from the Okaloosa County School District after 15 years as a child care director at Plew Elementary School. Taking care of children was her passion; however, her number one priority was her son, David. She enjoyed entertaining family and friends. Her smile and caring heart will be missed.ÂŽBill Bishop, chief assis-tant state attorney in Okaloosa County, said it was unclear if Sharron died due to the injuries she suffered in the alleged attack or because of previ-ous health issues.Her body was sent to the Medical ExaminerÂs Office for an autopsy. If the autopsy shows that Sharron died from the alleged attack, authorities could upgrade one of JudsonÂs charges from attempted murder to second-degree murder, Bishop said. He would still face attempted pre-meditated murder for the alleged attack on his son. But itÂs unlikely Judson will face a jury anytime soon. On May 18 he was declared incompetent to stand trial and was ordered to be trans-ferred from the Okaloosa County Jail to Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee, where he will undergo treatment for undisclosed medical and/or psychiatric issues, according to Bishop.ÂI canÂt get into any details as far as specific mental or physical problems,ÂŽ Bishop said. ÂBut by law, there are some issues which would have made it difficult for (Judson) to assist in his own defense, and based upon those findings, the court made that determination (of incompetency).ÂŽA competency evaluation addresses several aspects of the defendantÂs ability to understand the legal process, including his appreciation of charges and possible penalties, ability to relate to his attorney, abi lity to Âmanifest appropriate courtroom behaviorÂŽ and motivation to help himself in the legal process.Insanity is a determina-tion that a person suffers from a mental illness, and because of that mental illness they donÂt realize what they did was wrong.Bishop said incompe-tency relates to a personÂs ability to stand trial, while insanity would go toward whether or not somebody can be found guilty or not guilty by reason of insanity. Judson will be re-eval-uated every six months, and if at any point he is determined to have regained his competency, Bishop said his office will move forward to pros-ecute him.According to his arrest report, Judson told inves-tigators shortly after the alleged attack that DavidÂs round-the-clock care had Âbecome too muchÂŽ for him, and his own health was deteriorating as well. Neighbors told the Daily News that David suffered from cerebral palsy, and they believed SharronÂs health had also taken a turn for the worse. Judson Wood declared incompetent Judson Wood lived with his wife Sharron and adult son David at this home at 1911 Benton Ave. in Niceville Authorities say Judson beat his wife and son with a metal mallet Feb. 6.

In Decem-ber 2015, Walton County sheriff's deputies responded to a call at the Raceway station in Mossy Head regarding an unresponsive 9-week-old boy, according to a press release from the Sheriff's Office. The infant was taken to a hospital in Pensacola, where he was later pronounced dead.The investigation turned criminal after an autopsy report showed the child had suffered significant injuries.Harold Clifford Bielec Jr. was charged with the death of his son in June 2016 and was later indicted on first-degree murder charges, the press release said. A jury found Bielec guilty of second-degree murder April 12.The State Attorney's Office and Sheriff's Office had sought a maxi-mum sentence of life in prison.After he is released from prison, Bielec must serve 15 years of probation with special conditions.Mossy Head man gets 25 years for sonÂs deathBielec TALLAHASSEENew advertisement: Florida Gov. Scott is the one helping Puerto RicoA new campaign ad for Florida Gov. Rick Scott says he is the "one public official" who has helped Puerto Rico.The Scott campaign announced Wednesday that it has begun running an online ad that sharply criticizes U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and defends Scott's efforts to help Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria. Scott is challenging the Demo-cratic incumbent this fall.The ad began running less than a week after the Republican governor's most recent trip to the U.S. territory. During a press conference, Scott said he didn't know what the federal government could have done differently after last year's devastating storm.Campaign spokesman Ryan Patmintra said the ad is not suggesting that the administration of President Donald Trump did not help those harmed by the storm.PARKLANDStoneman Douglas to get second principal to help massacre recoveryIn the wake of a school shooting that killed 17, a Florida high school will now have two principals.The principal from another high school in the district will join Marjory Stoneman Douglas High's Principal Ty Thompson this fall. Thompson and Teresa Hall will serve as co-principals balancing recovery efforts with day-to-day operations.The Broward Principals and Assistants Association says Thompson will oversee the recovery efforts to make sure the 3,200 students and their teachers are get-ting the help they need. He asked the district to appoint a co-principal to help with the job's other duties.Hall has been the princi-pal at West Broward High, a 2,300-student school.If the school board approves Hall on Tuesday, the Sun Sentinel reports she'll start at the Parkland school on July 1.

Rick Scott and the tourism-marketing agency Visit Florida said Tuesday.The increase this year was buoyed by 29.1 million domes-tic visitors, 8.5 percent more than during the first quarter of 2017. The number of Cana-dian visitors was up 2.5 percent during the quarter, though overseas visitors were down 0.7 percent, according to compari-sons posted on the Visit Florida website.Ken Lawson, CEO of Visit Florida, said in a recent interview that tourism funds 1.4 million jobs in the state.ÂIt makes sure those people can feed their families and pay their mortgages,ÂŽ he said. ÂTourism is the No. 1 economic driver in Florida.ÂŽScott, who is running for U.S. Senate this year, has made a high-profile priority of increas-ing tourism numbers and has pushed the Legislature to set aside money for Visit FloridaÂs marketing efforts. Lawmakers approved $76 million for the current year and the same amount for the fiscal year that starts July 1.Florida drew an estimated 116.5 million visitors in 2017, despite grappling with issues such as damage from Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys and other areas, according to state numbers. That was up from a previous high of 112.4 million in 2016. If last year is an indica-tion, the first-quarter total of 33.2 million visitors Â„ a period that included the northern cold-weather months of January and February Â„ will be a high-water mark in 2018. Last year, Florida drew 30.9 million visitors in the first quarter, with the nexthighest total of 29.36 million in the second quarter, Visit Florida numbers show. The third quar-ter, which included steamy parts of the summer and Hurricane Irma, was the lowest at 27.7 million.The 2017 numbers also showed that an estimated 9.6 percent of domestic outof-state visitors came from Georgia, while 8.5 percent came from New York, 5.5 percent came from Texas, 5.3 percent came from Ohio and 5.3 percent came from Pennsylvania. Domestic travel was largely concentrated from states in the eastern half of the country. Canada was the top source of international visitors in 2017, followed by the United Kingdom, Brazil, Argentina and Columbia, according to the Visit Florida website. Canada, however, was the only one of those countries that provided an increase in Florida visitors in 2017. The News Service of Florida contributed to this story.

Every day, heÂs on time, and he said heÂs made it a point to shuck the traditional coach uniform of tennis shoes and shorts, instead opting for professional, business attire. He sings Bay HighÂs alma mater with his students, and chides them for leaving trash around campus.ÂThey donÂt understand that this is sometimes bigger than them,ÂŽ Grady said. ÂWe try to make everything about the individual, but sometimes it is about the community, about the school. I try to do two things: make sure theyÂre getting what they need and get individual attention, but also understand that the world is bigger than each individual.ÂŽGrowing up around educators, Grady himself Âjust fell intoÂŽ teaching. In the pre-med program at the University of Florida with a degree in chemistry and good MCAT scores, when Grady came home, heÂd substitute teach to earn extra money. Burned out on college, he wanted a year off before tack-ling medical school, and at the behest of his parents, he got a full-time teaching job.Eighteen years later, he still hasnÂt looked back at medical school.ÂI was always a natural teacher, I always had a knack,ÂŽ Grady said. ÂI think it takes a natural gift. I know a lot of smart people, but most of the super smart people I know do not have an ability to teach. They canÂt explain things to other people.ÂŽGrady especially takes the mantle of teaching seniors seriously, counseling them on their future goals and plans before they head off to college and into adult life. ItÂs his goal, he said, to help them reach their goals.ÂHonestly I embrace that,ÂŽ he said. ÂI like being able to catapult them into their own choices and their own goals.ÂŽ GRADYFrom Page B1Walden performs on the third day of SandJam in late April.

But itÂs those who know how to tune in to the messages and tones they donÂt like who will become smarter. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ For business to run smoothly, communication will be essential. Over-communicate. Communicate redundantly! Whether hearing or telling a story, it will be better to err on the side of repetition. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ As for the conversation youÂve been putting off, this is the time to have it. Those who need to hear you will be all ears. Your words, planned and unplanned, will eloquently tumble out. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ Creation and destruction are part of the same cycle, though they run on different timetables. What takes years to build can be dest royed in a blink. So while destruction is necessary to creation, often the smallest amount will do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Â„ You may feel that you still have something to p rove to yourself, or something you can do to become worthy of your own acceptance. So what would it take for you to become your own best friend and supporter across the board? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Â„ If you feel that your peers are providing undue pressure, consider that you may be inadvertently giving them reason to believe youÂre on the brink of agreeing with them. Walk away. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Â„ In the name of smooth business, it wouldnÂt hurt to spend a few minutes ÂcatastrophizingÂŽ Â„ that is to say, coming up with a handful of worst-case scenarios and what youÂd do in each case. With preparation comes conÂ“ dence. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Â„ YouÂre perfectly capable of rational thought and communication. However, as you wisely lead with your emotional intelligence, logic gives way to something that, on the surface at least, makes less sense: the poetry of the heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Â„ You canÂt afford to let the vagaries of communication distract from, diffuse or cover up the truth. You can get to the bottom of it with direct questions, as long as you make people feel that itÂs safe to be honest. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Â„ YouÂll be a teacher today, so you may as well be an excellent one. Excellent teachers communicate clearly to impart information and skills in a structure that best facilitates student comprehension and absorption. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ YouÂve learned this lesson before, but it bears repeating now: If you think someone canÂt fail and you treat him or her accordingly, the relationship is doomed. Instead, see the Â” awed humanity and give your love anyway. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Â„ It will be particularly difÂ“ cult to see people for who they are because you canÂt help but be blinded by the possibilities you notice about what they might be able to do for you.

Alex Ovechkin is one win away from carving his name into history at the peak of his incredible hockey career.With a 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final and a city thousands of miles away thirsting for its first championship in a generation, the Vegas stakes are awfully high for the Caps in Game 5.Ovi still wants his teammates thinking about the Golden Knights, not that silver trophy.ÂTo be honest, I think most of us have never been in this position,ÂŽ said Ovechkin, who could become the first Russian captain to raise the Cup. ÂFor me personally, I donÂt try to think about it too much whatÂs going on and just try focusing on different things.

[CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] Landsharks hit high water markWith his 33rd birthday looming in the fall, Ovechkin understands the opportunity before him and the magnitude of the situation for everyone who has ever worn the CapitalsÂ jersey.ItÂs enough to tighten anybodyÂs grip on the stick, but the Caps didnÂt appear overly tight during their workout or in the dressing room afterward.ÂItÂs a great time,ÂŽ Ovechkin said Wednesday. ÂProbably the best time in my life, hockeywise. We just enjoy it together, this moment. ItÂs fun.ÂŽEven with a command-ing series lead, the Caps all spoke of the importance of consistency and seizing the moment after their light workout. Washington has a shock-ingly lengthy franchise history of playoff collapses, but these Caps promptly won all three potential closeout games in their first three playoff series this spring.ÂMaybe because weÂve talked about it so much,ÂŽ Caps defenseman John Carlson said. ÂGuys are sick of hearing about it from the meetings. Sick of not getting it done. They all kind of blend together, but I think we have come out with great efforts every closing-out game, and weÂre going to need a big one. This is a good team at home. ItÂs going to take a really good effort to get it done.ÂŽThe Caps donÂt have the luxury of thinking about the minor disappoint-ment of not being at home to secure WashingtonÂs first championship in a major pro sport since the RedskinsÂ Super Bowl vic-tory in January 1992. Back home in D.C., fans will be cheering on their team at Capital One Arena in a watch party that sold out in about 20 minutes.ÂI think the history of the organization is definitely an important thing, but weÂre focused on this group,ÂŽ WashingtonÂs Tom Wilson said. ÂWeÂre focused on this year, and obviously once all is said and done or whatever happens, you can look back on it. We want to do it for the city. We want to do it for ourselves.ÂŽSo far in this series, the Caps have done just about everything well. Washington has scored 16 goals in four games against the reeling Golden Knights, whose charmed expansion season has run short of magic in three consecutive losses.While the Caps focused on changing nothing from their last three efforts, the Golden Knights also donÂt believe they need a wholesale change. Coach Gerard GallantÂs team is banking on the resilience of a group that hasnÂt lost four consecu-tive games at any point in their utterly charmed inaugural season.ÂItÂs not the first adversity weÂve faced this year,ÂŽ forward Jona-than Marchessault said. ÂYouÂd rather have the odds in your favor, but IÂm thinking about (Game 5). If you start thinking that we have to win three games, sometimes it gets demoralizing. WeÂre just focused on the next one. ... TheyÂre in a better sit-uation than us, thatÂs for sure. Stuff weÂve done this year has never been done, so I think thatÂs what weÂre thinking about.ÂŽÂHeÂs a tough horse,ÂŽ the trainer said. ÂFor about four seconds, you can love on him, but thatÂs it.ÂŽJustify will step onto Belmont ParkÂs deep, sandy surface for the first time on Thursday. Baffert had yet to decide exactly what the colt will do the next two days, although it wonÂt be any-thing of consequence; his major training has been completed.Justify won the Derby and Preakness on sloppy tracks.BaffertÂs 13-yearold son, Bode, already texted his race-day fore-cast to his father, who read it out loud off his phone. Bode wants to be a meteorologist.ÂTell dad that we are having half an inch of rain on Belmont day. Cold front pushing through Elmont day of race. Showers and thun-derstorms likely, with isolated downpours at times,ÂŽ Baffert said, chuckling. ÂThatÂs my weatherman. HeÂs always right.ÂŽTruth be told, Baffert prefers a dry, fast track. Some of JustifyÂs rivals have already tested the track after arriving earlier in the week.Hofburg, the early 9-2 second choice, galloped on Wednesday and visited the paddock where he will be saddled on race day. Bravazo, the Preak-ness runner-up, also galloped. Justify and Bravazo are the only horses that will compete in the Derby, Preakness and Belmont. JustifyÂs half-length victory in the Preakness allowed Baffert to tie D. Wayne Lukas with his 14th victory in a Triple Crown race, the most by any trainer.Now, Bravazo and Lukas will try to upend history.ÂI think itÂll get down to which horses have the pedigree and the stamina to finish,ÂŽ Lukas said.That wonÂt be known until Saturday because none of the horses has ever run 1 miles in a race, and likely wonÂt be asked to again in their careers.ÂWeÂve seen so many good horses come in here and get beat,ÂŽ Baffert said. ÂIs he good enough? HeÂs good enough, but he needs to run his race. HeÂs going to be a target now and you donÂt know whatÂs going to happen.ÂŽ NHLFrom Page C1 JUSTIFYFrom Page C1 The Associated PressPITTSBURGH Â„ Ryan ShazierÂs routine hasnÂt changed much, even after a life-altering spinal injury put his football career in jeopardy.The Pittsburgh Steel-ers linebacker still arrives at the team facility around 7 a.m. He still watches copious amounts of film. He still works out regularly, often with his teammates alongside. And he still believes one day he will run out of the Heinz Field tunnel in full uniform despite the many obstacles he understands are in his path.ÂMy dream is to come back and play football again,ÂŽ Shazier said on Wednesday in his first wide-ranging public remarks since undergoing spine stabilization sur-gery last December. ÂIÂm working my tail off every single day; have (playing again) in the back of my mind every single time I go to rehab.ÂŽShazier walked into the media room with help of a cane and spent 20 minutes outlining his journey since he lowered his head to hit Bengals wide receiver Josh Malone in the first quarter on Dec. 4. He called the moment after impact when he grabbed the small of his back while his legs lay motionless Âa little scary,ÂŽ but was quick to thank emergency responders in Cincinnati for their delicate work on the field in the immediate aftermath.He underwent spine stabilization surgery on Dec. 6 and has spent the intervening months remaining adamant he would play again while being a fixture at the teamÂs practice facility, where he has become a de facto coach. ItÂs a role heÂs embracing, but one heÂs not quite ready to accept on a full-time basis. ÂJust because I got hurt doesnÂt mean IÂm going to stop loving the game of football,ÂŽ said Shazier, who added that despite the injury heÂs going to give it Âeverything I haveÂŽ in an effort to return to play.Details of the exact nature of ShazierÂs injury and his long-term prognosis remain sparse. He declined to get into specifics about whether playing again is even med-ically feasible, saying his medical team has told him to focus on making incre-mental improvements.ÂHonestly right now, IÂm not a doctor,ÂŽ Shazier said. ÂEvery day I take it one day at a time. The fur-ther we get along in rehab, the better they can give me answers.ÂŽShazier has made remarkable progress in the last six months. He spent several weeks in the hospital following surgery, though he took time out to attend several Steelers home games near the end of the 2017 season. He regularly posts updates through his social media accounts and provided an indelible moment during the NFL draft in April when he walked on stage in Dallas to announce PittsburghÂs first-round selection. By Pete IacobelliThe Associated PressDARLINGTON, S.C. Â„ Matt KensethÂs goals are all short-term these days. The 2003 NASCAR champion who rejoined owner Jack Roush at Roush Fenway Racing two months ago understands heÂs not yet a threat to win in the No. 6 Ford. And with a part-time schedule, Kenseth is not worried about points or the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs. ÂItÂs a lot different than anything I ever done before,ÂŽ Kenseth said Wednesday at Darlington Raceway, where he took part in a tire test. ÂItÂs stepping into some-thing thatÂs somewhat of a project.ÂŽ And one that KensethÂs not sure heÂs yet helped improve. He was 36th in his return with Roush Fenway at Kansas last month due to an accident. Kenseth took the pole for the All-Star race at Charlotte and finished 14th in the race, then 17th a week later in the Coca-Cola 600. Kenseth felt the team had improved a week ago with a 13th at Pocono and is looking for better things this weekend at Michigan. Kenseth had 39 wins in 21 years of racing, most of those as Roush driver. Their biggest moments came in the 2003 cham-pionship season when the ultra-consistent Kenseth had a win and 25 top 10s to capture the title. After the 2012 season, Kenseth jumped to Joe Gibbs Racing where he finished second in the championship chase in 2013. He lost his ride at JGR after this past season and could not find a fulltime seat for 2018. Instead of fretting about lost opportunities or lobbying for a spot, Kenseth stayed content and com-fortable on the sidelines with his family. His 25-year-old son Ross races stock cars, and Matt and wife Katie have four daughters rang-ing from 8-year-old Kaylin to five-month old Mallory.But amid the family time, a call came from his old boss, Roush. Kenseth thought about the offer and, because of his respect for Roush, decided to return and help improve the onetime powerhouse No. 6 ride made famous by Hall of Famer Mark Martin. Trevor Bayne was in the No. 6 at the start of the season.Kenseth said his role is to help get his car and the No. 17 team of Ricky Stenhouse Jr. running alongside NASCARÂs best. ÂThereÂs a lot of great things there and they have a lot of good momentum,ÂŽ Kenseth said of the Roush Fenway teams. ÂBut we still know thereÂs a lot of work to do to get both cars up there contending week in and week out.ÂŽ ThatÂs part of the reason Kenseth and the team came to Darlington for the tire test. Kenseth won the Southern 500 here in 2013 and has 12 top-10 finishes in 24 starts, so heÂs adept at navigating the track. The extra laps, though, give him an extra chance to bond with the No. 6 crew during the tire tests. ÂThatÂs an important thing,ÂŽ he said. Kenseth has enjoyed his changed role in NASCAR and hopes he can improve Roush FenwayÂs fortunes for this season and beyond Â„ but not necessarily with him in the car long-term. The 46-year-old driver sees this season as a week-to-week proposition without an eye on staking himself to a full-time job because of satisfactory performance. Many of his contemporaries like Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards and Tony Stew-art have wrapped up their racing careers and Kenseth said he enjoyed his free time around his family. But heÂs grateful, he said, to do his part to help Roush, who gave Kenseth his big boost in NASCAR Kenseth OK with role at Roush FenwayPittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier watches practice Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

** The News Herald | Thursday, June 7, 2018 C3By Mark LongAP Sports WriterGAINESVILLE Â„ Jonah GirandÂs path to the NCAA baseball tournament had more movement than a knuckle ball.The 23-year-old Florida catcher started at nearby Santa Fe College, left after one season, returned home and took a job in retail. He was away from baseball for a year before ending up at another junior college near Orlando.He started playing again, got his associates degree and reached out to Florida coach Kevin OÂSullivan last spring. His timing was impecca-ble. The Gators were losing starting catcher Mike Rivera and backup Mark Kolozsvary, and in need of some depth."I just thought he maybe could be a good bullpen catcher," OÂSullivan recalled. Girand turned out to be a lot more. The junior stepped in for injured captain JJ Schwarz (hand) last week, homered three times in four games and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Gainesville Regional. He also caught two first-round draft picks, right-handers Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar."ItÂs been crazy, having been out a year to playing in the regionals with the Florida Gators," Girand said. "It has been an amaz-ing opportunity." ItÂs not over, either.Girand likely will be behind the plate again this weekend when overall No. 1 seed and defending national champion Florida (45-18) hosts Auburn (42-21) in one of eight best-of-three super regionals. The winner advances to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.For Girand, getting to Omaha would be another trip on his unpredictable journey."ItÂs amazing these stories that happen," OÂSullivan said. "You sit up here and heÂs Regional MVP and he wasnÂt recruited by anybody."Girand began his college career at Santa Fe in 2015. After failing to hit his weight in 19 games, the 6-foot2, 200-pounder returned home to the Orlando area and got a job. It didnÂt take long for him to realize he would rather deal with curveballs than customers.He revved up his workouts, put out some feelers and traded in his name tag for a jersey number. He landed at Seminole State College in nearby Sanford. "It sits in the back of your mind as to whether or not youÂre going to get back to it," Girand said.Playing big-time college baseball was still GirandÂs goal, even after hitting .256 in 39 games with the Raiders in 2017.So he contacted OÂSullivan, who had seen Girand play in high school and in summer leagues. Girand figured it was a long shot, but OÂSullivan needed help."ItÂs kind of a weird story," OÂSullivan said. "I remember him being a big, strong kid."Girand flashed potential during fall practice, but was buried on the depth chart behind Schwarz and highly touted freshmen Cal Green-field and Brady Smith. It stayed that way through much of the season, with Schwarz starting 45 games behind the plate. Greenfield started eight, and Smith five. Girand spent his time in the bullpen.He got his chance after Schwarz took a ball off his right hand in the final regular-season series at Mississippi State last month. Schwarz broke a bone in his hand and would miss several weeks, at the very least. In the Southeastern Conference Tournament, OÂSullivan made a gut decision to start Girand over Greenfield and Smith. Girand doubled in his first at-bat as a starter."It just looked right," OÂSullivan said. "ItÂs hard for freshmen to play this time of year. ThereÂs just a lot that goes into it. You just make a decision. You have a hunch, and (Jonah) makes you look good. I donÂt know any other way to explain it."Girand made OÂSullivan look great in the regional.Girand homered in each of FloridaÂs first two games, the second one a solo shot that turned out to be the winning run against Jacksonville. He was at his best with the teamÂs season on the line. Trailing 2-1 against Florida Atlantic in a win-or-go-home finale, Girand delivered a towering, two-run shot to left that put the Gators ahead for good. "ItÂs awesome. Jonah has worked so hard this whole season, even in the fall," teammate and SEC player of the year Jonathan India said. "I think he was our best hitter in the fall. He works at it, works at his craft and now itÂs paying off for him. Now he has his chance to play and heÂs showing why he should play. IÂm happy for him."

[CYNDI CHAMBERS/THE GAINESVILLE SUN VIA AP] By Joe ReedyAssociated PressStetsonÂs recent claim to fame in baseball has been a two-time American League Cy Young winner and 2014 National League Rookie of the Year. But this yearÂs team is trying to change that.The Hatters are in the NCAA TournamentÂs Super Regional for the first time. The national No. 11 seed (48-11) will travel to sixth-seeded North Carolina (41-18) for the best-of-three series, which begins Friday, with a spot in the College World Series on the line."The buzz the past couple weeks around the program has been electric," said coach Steve Trimper, in his second season. "This has been a great opportunity to go out there and prove we belong with some of the nationÂs top programs."The smallest school remaining in the field is also the one with the most momentum. Stetson, which has 3,089 students and is located in central Florida, has the nationÂs longest current winning streak at 18 games. Stetson was 25-27 last season, but Tremper said there was a feeling things could turn around quickly. Brooks Wilson decided to come back for his senior season instead of going to Texas, which took him in the 22nd round of the MLB draft.Wilson, a starting pitcher his first three seasons, said he came back because he wanted to complete his degree in business administration, but also because he saw the pieces of a strong team coming back.The move paid off for both. Wilson switched to the closerÂs role and became the teamÂs designated hitter. That has made him one of the nationÂs top two-way players as he led the nation in saves with 20 and was the Atlantic SunÂs Player of the Year, batting .307 with 33 runs batted in. On Tuesday, he was drafted by the Braves in the seventh round."If Brooks did not come back, you and I wouldnÂt be talking today," Trimper said. "He is a great leader and that has carried through to the rest of the team."For a program that counts Indians ace Corey Kluber and the MetsÂ Jacob deGrom as alumni, it is fitting the Hatters have a strong pitching staff. Three of their starters have more than 100 strikeouts for the second straight season, the first time that has happened since Rice did it in 2002-03.Leading the way is Logan Gilbert, who on Monday became the highest-drafted player in program history when he went ninth overall to Seattle. The right-hander (11-1, 2.52 ERA) leads the nation with 169 strikeouts.Kluber said he watched last SaturdayÂs 10-3 win over Oklahoma State because he had heard a lot about Gilbert. There are similarities: They both have great fastballs and an equally dominant second pitch in their slider. Over the past two seasons Gilbert has put up Kluberesque numbers, going 21-1 with a 2.30 ERA and 264 strikeouts.Gilbert said despite the increasing attention around the program, his teammates have been taking everything in stride."We are pretty loose, which is good to see. You would kind of expect it to be the opposite with more expectations, but weÂve been pretty laid back," he said. Junior Jack Perkins, taken in the 11th round by the Phil-lies, is more of a workhorse right-hander who uses his offspeed pitches to keep hitters guessing. The junior is tied with Gilbert for the team lead in wins, going 11-2 with a 2.34 ERA.Left-hander Mitchell Senger, who could get the call if it goes to a third game Sunday, also has a lively fastball and likes to work quickly. The offense has also started to come around. They are batting .277 during the winning streak, 22 points higher than their season average. The middle of the order Â„ center fielder Jacob Koos, Wilson, first baseman Eric Foggo, shortstop Jorge Arenas and third baseman Jonathan Meola Â„ combined to go 25 for 73 with 16 RBIs in regional play."I think we have been more aggressive early in finding the right pitches and that has made everyone more comfortable in their approach at the plate," Wilson said.Stetson is hoping this yearÂs run can spur success in future years, and that his program can be on the same level as Coastal Caro-lina, which won the College World Series two years ago, and Cal State Fullerton."We definitely have seen an uptick in recruiting," Trimper said. "We have good facilities, a great loca-tion and a tough schedule. I feel like this can keep us in the national forefront."Kluber said his only regret is that he wishes this run could have happened while he was there. "But itÂs fun to watch," he added. "I think itÂs an excit-ing time for the program."Stetson well-armed in rst NCAA Super Regional appearanceIn this June 1, 2018, Â“ le photo, Stetson players take the Â“ eld during the NCAA college baseball tournament regional game against Hartford, in DeLand. [STEPHEN M. DOWELL/ORLANDO SENTINEL VIA AP] The Associated PressMEMPHIS, Tenn. Â„ Count Phil Mickelson among those happy to see the St. Jude Classic shift to a World Golf Champion-ship even as he uses the TPC Southwind one final time as a tuneup for the U.S. Open. ÂI really, really enjoy this golf course,ÂŽ Mickelson said Wednesday. ÂI think itÂs the most underrated on tour. IÂm really excited that we are coming back here for a World Golf Championship to end our season-long race next year. ItÂs quickly become one of my favorite events.ÂŽMickelson has tied for second twice and tied for third, all since 2013. He wouldnÂt mind doing more than just playing well at the PGA TourÂs last stop before the U.S. Open next week at Shinnecock Hills.ÂI very much would like to win,ÂŽ Mickelson said. ÂWinning earlier this year meant a lot to me, and IÂd love to add a couple more this year and this is an ideal spot to do it. ItÂs a course that IÂve played well in the past, that rewards good ball-striking, good putting. I know IÂll be in it on Sunday. I just hope I shoot low enough on Sunday.ÂŽMickelson has plenty of company. Dustin Johnson, a winner here in 2012, is here working his way back to the top-ranked golfer in the world after slipping to No. 2. That still makes Johnson the highest-ranked player in this event since Rory McIlroy came in at No. 2 in 2012, and heÂs among six of the worldÂs top 28 ranked players here this week.Quality wonÂt be a prob-lem next year. ThatÂs when this event sponsored by FedEx replaces the WGCBridgestone Invitational and becomes the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Johnson said he likes how he is hitting the ball. The 2016 U.S. Open champ will be heading to Shinnecock Hills on Sunday night after this 72-hole event starts Thursday. ÂI always tend to play well on very challenging courses,ÂŽ said Johnson, whose lone win this year came in January at the Tournament of Champions. ÂI like it. It makes you think, and itÂs fun. You got to really focus on every shot, so itÂs something that I enjoy.ÂŽSt. Jude Classic takes nal turn as PGA tuneup for US OpenBy Howard FendrichThe Associated PressPARIS Â„ Garbine MuguruzaÂs big strokes overwhelmed Maria Sharapova right from the start. Their French Open quarterfinal Wednesday was no contest at all, a 6-2, 6-1 one-way journey.Simona Halep went from out-of-sorts to on-target against Angelique Kerber, scrambling to every ball and staying the course to erase an early deficit. Halep pointed her right index finger at her temple when she eventually completed a 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-2 comeback to reach the semifinals, too.ÂI never gave up. So I think thatÂs why I won today,ÂŽ Halep said. ÂMy head won it.ÂŽWhen the top-seeded Halep and No. 3 Muguruza meet Thursday, their con-trasting styles will match up with plenty at stake.

Track: Michigan International Speedway (oval, 2 miles). Race distance: 400 miles, 200 laps. Last year: Kyle Larson won his second race of 2017. Last race: Defending champion Martin Truex Jr. picked up his second victory of the season. Fast facts: Truex let it be known that heÂs not ready to cede his title to Kyle Busch or Kevin Harvick just yet. TruexÂs win at Pocono pushed him into fourth place (Joey Logano is third), and he also has 13 playoff points. ... Larson has posted six top-10s in his last seven races. ... Last weekend was the Â“ rst time all season that Jimmie Johnson led laps. It took 14 races for Johnson to take Â“ rst at any point in an event, the longest streak to start a season in his career. ...

Last race: Kyle Busch won his Â“ rst series event off 2018 at Pocono. Fast facts: Elliott SadlerÂs habit of racking up the points without actually winning the race has continued in 2018. He hasnÂt taken a checkered Â” ag yet, but Sadler has registered top-10 Â“ nishes in all 12 races for a 62-point lead. ... Cole Custer of Stewart-Haas Racing seems to be taking notice of SadlerÂs efÂ“ ciency. Custer also hasnÂt won in 2018, but heÂs second in points after Â“ nishing Â“ fth in Pocono. ...

No area players were selected on either of the opening days.Following the 2017 draft in which 10 play-ers from Chipola College were taken, much less players from other Panhandle Conference teams and area high schools, it wasnÂt until pitcher Jake Kinney was selected from Tallahassee Community College in the 33rd round that a mini run of area talent occurred.A 6-foot-7 righthander, Kinney was 4-0 with a 2.04 ERA last season. He struck out 65 in only 39.2 innings. Kinney was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies.Outfielder Edmond Americaan of two-time defending national champion Chipola went to the Chicago Cubs in the 35th round with the 1,058th pick. Americaan hit .413 with 8 home runs, 48 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. However, he was drafted a few rounds later than he was chosen in 2017.Then it was Pensacola State pitcher Chad Bryant, in the 36th round to the Oakland Athletics. Bryant was chosen with the 1,073rd selection.MLB DRAFTPanhandle players mostly ignored BUFFALO, N.Y.Incognito back home after gym outburstRichie Incognito tells The Associated Press heÂs back home training in Arizona and feeling great, two weeks after the former Buffalo Bills offensive line-man spent three days in a mental hospital following an alleged outburst at a south Florida gym.Without discussing the outburst, Incognito wrote in a text to The AP on Wednesday that he is still pursuing continuing his NFL career for a 12th season. He focused a majority of his message thanking friends and fans for their support, and spe-cifically singled out former teammate, center Eric Wood. Incognito referred to Wood as a pillar of the community and added: ÂWhen I would have a dark day, he was a bright shin-ing light that helped me through. I owe him a lot.ÂŽIncognito also thanked the Bills and team owners Terry and Kim Pegula for providing him an opportu-nity to resurrect his career. The Bills signed Incognito in January 2015 after he spent 18 months out of football following his role in the Miami DolphinsÂ bullying scandal.ANN ARBOR, MICH.Beilein decides to remain as Michigan head coachJohn Beilein is staying at Michigan after exploring the possibility of coaching the Detroit Pistons.ÂI love the University of Michigan and I am excited about coaching our MenÂs Basketball Team next season and in the years to come!ÂŽ Beilein tweeted Wednesday. ÂLetÂs go hang some more banners at ÂTHE GREATEST UNIVERSITY IN THE WORLD.ÂŽ Beilein interviewed with the Pistons a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press last week on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.The 65-year-old Beilein has coached at Michigan for 11 seasons with a 248-143 record.
