Brig Gen. C. David Turner, who commands the Army Corps of Engi neers’ multistate region that encompasses the entire Apalachicola-Chatta hoochee-Flint (ACF) river basin, and his staff attended a March 12 breakfast in Apalachicola. After a brief welcome from Mayor Van Johnson, County Commissioner Smokey Parrish drove home the message that “you don’t improve Mother Nature, you work with Mother Nature.” Parrish said the county supports “limited dredging at chokepoints up and down the river,” but said more needs to be done to ensure the continued vitality of the river and bay. “It’s been a long time since we’ve got the flows we needed,” Parrish said. “There was a time when big barges would come by. You don’t see that anymore. “Commerce presents an economic boon to Apalachic ola, and to each and every community up and down the river.” He said adequate flows, responsive to the seasons, will ensure a healthy and productive estuary, but with out them, “you’re going to kill this bay.” “It’s a shame we’re By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh bkleine@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Pan ama City city commission ers on Tuesday will discuss a new location for a proposed natural gas station. The best of the seven options, according to city staff, is 600 27th St., at the cor ner of State 77 across from BB&T bank The property, almost an acre in size, is owned by Rowlett Bryant and includes a warehouse building. The asking price is $700,000, although the 2014 certified value is $396,714. Purchasing the property will not be the city’s only cost. The city will need to connect to the location by running a new line about 4 miles and looping it into the Baldwin Road line. The Tampa Electric Company, which operates natural gas lines in the city, has agreed to pay part of the cost of a new line, although the agenda item does not say how much. The city’s original plan, to put the station off Red wood Avenue near 11th Street, would have carried minimal cost, as the city already owns the property, A natural gas station had been proposed for this site on Redwood Avenue, which used to be a landfill, but a new plan to be considered Tuesday would locate the station at 600 27th St., not far from the intersection of State 77 and Avery Street, where Kohl’s is located.H EATHER L EIPHART The News Herald County’s insurance decision hikes price for consumers By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn jhenderson@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Even though he has health insurance, Lawrence Lassiter was billed $1,502 for his ambulance ride from the Beach to the hospital in Panama City when he suffered his second heart attack in April 2014. When he got the bill, he was shocked. “I thought I was going to have another heart attack,” said Lassiter, a disc jockey on the Beach. “I can’t afford to pay. I’m paying these pre miums every month hoping I have insurance when I need it, and then when I need it, it’s not there.” After another ambulance ride, Lassiter now owes about $3,000. After his latest ride to the hospital, he was informed by his health insur ance company, Florida Blue Cross Blue Shield, that none of the bill would be paid because Bay County has not entered into a contract with the insurance company to be an innetwork provider. Doing so would “ I thought I was going to have another heart attack.

TOKYO Burger King to sell ‘Flame Grilled’ fragrance for 1 day Burger King is putting its scent into a limited-edition fragrance. The chain said Friday the Whopper grilled beef burgerscented cologne will be sold only on April 1, and only in Japan. It’s not an April Fools’ Day joke, though the company chose the date deliberately. The limited “Flame Grilled” fragrance can be purchased at 5,000 yen (about $40), including the burger. There will be only 1,000 of them. PHOENIX Zoo discovers 2-year-old bear is female, not male The Phoenix Zoo is fessing up to what it calls an “embearassing” mistake. Zoo officials were planning to transfer Luka to the Nashville, Tenn., zoo when they recently discovered that the 2year-old Andean bear is a female, not a male as thought. According to the Phoenix Zoo, Andean bear cubs’ genitalia are highly undeveloped before age 2, making it very difficult to determine gender. The zoo said employees there also hadn’t handled the bear much because it was doing very well with its mother. COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho Woman kills hunter’s falcon — with a scarf An Idaho woman faces charges after authorities say she beat a hunter’s falcon to death with a beaded scarf after seeing the bird of prey take down a duck. Patti MacDonald, 60, of Hauser, was charged with a misdemeanor count of beating or harassing an animal. Authorities said MacDonald fractured the skull of the 8-yearold falcon named Hornet on Jan. 7. The duck also died and was being stored as evidence. BELLEVUE, Wash. Stolen vehicle driven to State Patrol office Washington State Troopers arrested a 36-year-old man who they said drove a stolen car into their parking lot at a district office. A driver recognized the stolen vehicle from a post on a motorist club Facebook post. Troopers said the witness captured video of Micah Hatcher behind the wheel of the car and used his cell phone to report it. The witness followed the car about 11.3 miles, and then into the State Patrol parking lot. Detectives said it was the easiest auto theft arrest they’d ever had. FARMINGTON, Utah Nude backyard sunbather agrees to wear swimsuit A 77-year-old Utah man charged with lewdness after sunbathing nude in his backyard agreed to a plea deal Tuesday that keeps his record clean as long as he wears a swimsuit. Myron Lee Kipp pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges in Farmington. But under the terms of the deal, the pleas won’t be recorded if Kipp stays covered over the next year. “He’ll still sunbathe, but he’ll wear his one-piece swimsuit,” said his lawyer, Bill Albright. Kipp has been taking in the sun in the buff for 30 years, often falling asleep in his backyard. Last year, police said children could see the nude Kipp from a church parking lot behind his house, which has a chain-link fence without privacy slats. CHARLOTTE, N.C. Police: Man can stand naked at his front door A Charlotte man who stands at his front door naked is upsetting his neighbors, but police say he is not doing anything illegal. People in the north Charlotte neighborhood called police Friday to lodge the latest of four complaints so far this year. Neighbors said the man stands naked at his door several times a week, and he has been doing it for years. They have taken pictures and video and hope the images will prompt the homeowners association to file some type of nuisance complaint. A spokeswoman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said though the man may be annoying the neighborhood, his actions don’t rise to the level of bringing charges because he’s on his own property. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — For weeks, Joey DiJulio, from the Seattle suburbs, found himself getting emails from people he didn’t know about a bachelor party and a groom he’s never met. He saw names of Philadelphia landmarks like Reading Terminal Market thrown around in the emails but couldn’t put his finger on where they were located — Philadelphia — until he searched the names online. It turns out DiJulio, 31, an information technology worker and a married father of one in Burien, Wash., had been mistaken for a friend of the groom with a similar last name. He sat as a “fly on the wall” for much of the email chain but broke the news after the groom’s brother wanted a headcount of people attending the party. But it didn’t end there. Groom Jeff Minetti, 34, figured why not still invite him? The Philadelphia real estate agent asked him to attend both the bachelor party March 28 and his wedding May 2 in New Jersey. “This is the city of brotherly love,” Minetti said, even telling DiJulio he could be his best man. “Any and all are welcome.” DiJulio went online to tell his story and raise money to cover his travel. In less than a week, he’s already hit his goal of a little more than $1,200 and is putting any more money raised toward Minetti’s honeymoon. Missing South Carolina cat found 2 years later in Southern California RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — A cat that vanished in South Carolina two years ago is going home after ending up almost 2,000 miles away in Southern California. Now, Kevin the orange tabby is leaving Palm Springs, Calif., after disappearing from Anderson, S.C., in 2013. John Welsh of Riverside County Animal Services sadi the cat turned up in early March inside a U-Haul trailer a woman had driven across the country. During a routine inspection, the inspector heard meowing. The driver says she didn’t know Kevin was inside. The dehydrated cat was taken to a shelter. His microchip helped track down owner Cheryl Walls, who joked that Kevin has seen more of the country than her. THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Ikea has a message for people wanting to converge on its stores for giant games of hide and seek: Go play someplace else. The phenomenon has taken off online in the Netherlands, where a whopping 19,000 people signed up to a Facebook group promoting a game at Ikea’s Amsterdam branch next month. Another 13,000 signed up for a game in the Ikea store in the city of Utrecht. “We have contacted these pages on social media and humbly asked them to have their hide and seek games somewhere else,” Ikea spokeswoman Martina Smedberg said. “In general we are happy that our customers are playful and want to have fun together with friends and family. But unfortunately, this hide and seek phenomenon has reached proportions where we can no longer guarantee the security of those who are playing or our customers and employees.” MADERA, Calif. (AP) — A man suspected of stealing a car spray-painted his face black in an attempt to evade police in Central California. Police say Jose Espinoza, 23, ran from them after being caught with a stolen car. Officers caught up to Espinoza and arrested him Saturday night with his face painted black. Police booked Espinoza into the Madera County Department of Corrections. MYRO N LEE KI PP NEWS OF THE WEIRD CAN YOU SEE ME NOW?

going to sit here and try to improve Mother Nature,” Parrish said. “Let’s not create another Everglades here. Now is the time to take the action to do something different.” Benjamin Chandler, executive director of Chattahoochee’s Main Street program, stressed that “we stand together with the city of Apalachicola.” “Our focus is first preservation and economic development,” he said. “We are tied to its history. We stand together as sister cities.” Shannon Hartsfield, who leads the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association, said it likely would be at least a year or two before the health of the estuary is restored. “Without these flows, we’re going to destroy our industry,” he said. “This is a dying way of life.” Steve Rash, owner of Water Street Seafood, said when he started in the 1980s, he recalled traveling to California and Denver, “where they were proud to be serving oysters from Apalachicola Bay.” Oyster processors from Franklin County shipped product across the country then, he said, “but unfortunately that’s not the case” today. “My company doesn’t buy Apalachicola oysters now,” he told the general. “There just isn’t enough to go around. We used to employ 50-60; it’s down to 20-30 now.” Rash said he’s seen declines in crab, fish and shrimp, and a boost in imports. “This bay is disappearing before our eyes right now,” he said. “We used to produce two truckloads of crabs a week to North Carolina. We don’t see any flounders anymore. The entire make-up of the bay is changing. The main problem is the lack of water.” He said though oysters nationwide are more popular now than ever, “we’ve basically fallen off the chart where we should be leading the industry. In the current environment, the price of oysters being so high, Apalachicola missed the boat; we’re out of the game. “This place should be booming, because of the potential this place has to produce seafood. Unfortunately the opposite is true.” Dan Tonsmeire, the Apalachicola Riverkeeper, shared numbers that indicated the ACF river flows support more than onethird of the eastern Gulf of Mexico, bolstering $5 billion in annual revenues and 55,000 jobs in west Florida alone. “We want to work with the Corps to raise your sights to see the whole system,” both for navigation and ecological needs, he said. Tonsmeire said the Riverkeeper has voiced support for limited dredging, but he warned of the potential negative effect the disposal of dredge spoils could have on the rivers’ sloughs. He said an upcoming geomorphic effluvial assessment could be a useful tool in determining how best to proceed with any dredging. George Floyd, with the Apalachicola Maritime Museum, addressed improving navigation and safety on the river, and he outlined a brief history of the river’s commercial history, from shipping cotton, timber and turpentine to harvesting sponges and seafood. “There have been many industries come and go,” he said. “We need to be thinking about the future, about new economic opportunities for Franklin County and others, where our needs come together for navigational maintenance.” Turner said having grown up in St. Louis, he learned all about the Mississippi River from his father and grandfather, so he understands the importance of river life. “Nine months ago, I was struggling to say the word ‘Apalachicola,’ ” he said. “I’ve become quite fluent. I’ve had a chance to hear a lot about so many different cultures. I’m enjoying the opportunity to learn about your city.” Le t us u se ou r qu ic k an d ea sy sc re en in g pr oc es ses to de te ct th e tr ue nat ur e of yo ur is sue s an d be gin to tr ea t th e ca us e an d no t th e sy mp to ms .

Th e of fe r in cl ud es : NATION & WORLD Monday, March 23, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A3 require the county to accept the insurance company’s reimbursement amount for ambulance service, which is less than what the county bills. Lassiter is not alone. Other Bay County residents who have received similar bills have vented their frustration to officials. Mark Bowen, the county’s chief of emergency services, said the type of insurance plan a person carries determines whether the county receives compensation for an ambulance bill as an outof-network provider. “Even our billing company sometimes doesn’t know what a person’s plan says,” he said. The county does accept payments for ambulance bills from insurance companies, but it has not entered into a contract to become an in-network provider with any insurance companies because the county would have to accept lower compensation for those customers whose plans pay for out-of-network coverage, Bowen said. “If we were to sign contracts, it would cost the Bay County taxpayers $250,000 per year just for Florida Blue,” he said. “That only affects about 60 percent of commercially insured Bay County citizens. When the other 40 percent are examined and contracts are contemplated with the remaining carriers such as AETNA, CIGNA, United, there would be an additional loss of between $65,000 and $85,000 per year. There is nowhere for this money to come from except local taxpayers.” But Lassiter looks at it differently. If the county accepted Florida Blue as an in-network provider, the insurance company would have paid out $994.95 on his $1,502.68 bill. Instead, it paid nothing. Lassiter said he could afford the $507 difference, and he feels the county is losing valuable income by not accepting the compensation for in-network providers. “Most people are probably like me,” he said. “If (the bill is) $500, I can try to pay that off and not mess up my credit. But for the ($1,502) that I can’t pay, let it go to collections.” He has decided to pay a minimum $25 a month on the bills to keep collectors off his back. “If they accepted insurance (as an in-network provider), they’d at least get that money from the insurance company, plus people would be more apt to pay,” Lassiter said. But Bowen said almost all 911 EMS providers in Florida do not sign contracts with commercial insurance companies to accept in-network compensation for ambulance service. Bowen said accepting insurance as an in-network provider for ambulance transports mainly would benefit the insurance company. “For a person who has met their deductible and has a typical 80/20 policy, any subsidy afforded to the insurance company and patient greatly benefits the insurance company while minimally helping most patients,” he said. He said the typical innetwork insurance contract forces the county to discount the transport rates by about 15 percent. “So if the patient is paying 20 percent of a charge, they would just get a 15 percent discount, while the insurance company would enjoy the same 15 percent applied to 80 percent of the net charges,” Bowen said. Special assessment would help Bowen said the county possibly could cut its bills and accept the insurance in-network compensation if the county had a special assessment to help pay for EMS service. Bowen said some commissioners are interested in the county accepting the in-network compensation, recognizing that some residents are surprised and displeased at getting ambulance bills of more than $1,300. Commissioners “would like, I think, to be in-network if we can afford it, so if we ever get to a point where we’ve got the funding to do that, then maybe we will,” he said. Another option is to charge county residents nothing for ambulance service if they pay a fee or tax for the service, and charge people from out of town the full bill, Bowen said. When Bay Medical Center operated the county’s ambulance service, the hospital accepted in-network insurance compensation for ambulance transports, Bowen said. He said the hospital was earning much of its money on the health care services it provided after getting the patient to the hospital, so the ambulance bill wasn’t a priority. The County Commission recently decided to get tougher with collections, voting to move delinquent accounts to a collector after 120 days instead of the current 180 days. Commissioner Mike Thomas said the county has balked at being too aggressive in collecting money from constituents who were forced to take emergency ambulance transports. “We all decided to be lax to start with on collections because you don’t want to make people mad because they are also your constituents,” Thomas said. “The fact is, if you turn these bulldog collectors over to them within 30 days, you may get more money, but some of those people haven’t healed yet. Some of those people have lost people.” Before the commission changed the policy, a firstparty collection agency known as Intermedix handled collections for the first 180 days after invoices for ambulance rides were sent out, which usually took a couple of months to end up in a person’s mailbox. After the company received no response from the customer, the company sent the bills to the delinquent accounts vendor, Credit Business Services Inc., which can put unpaid bills on a person’s credit report. Intermedix earns 4.5 percent of the unpaid bills it collects. CBS is paid 21 percent. County Commissioner George Gainer said the county has offered a quality ambulance service but has fallen short in collecting payment for that service. “There is no question at all that our staff and the staff we inherited is doing a great job in providing the services,” he said. Gainer said when patients are stabilized, staff should ask them or their family how they are going to pay. He said the hospitals can share the insurance information about the patients with county ambulance officials. “If you get a tooth filled, or you go down to the doctor, they’ll ask you to sign one form that says, ‘The patient is responsible for the services,’ ” he said. “And that’s pretty much the attitude we’ve got to take. I don’t think you would take a person who is bleeding to death or having a heart attack and try and get billing information right then, but as soon as they stabilize a person and get them to a hospital and emergency room, get their information.” But County Commission Chairman Guy Tunnell said “philosophically, I have a problem with our (paramedics) being bill collectors.” ‘CAN’T AFFORD’ from Page A1 WATER FLOW from Page A1 The county does accept payments for ambulance bills from insurance companies, but it has not entered into a contract to become an in-network provider with any insurance companies because the county would have to accept lower compensation for those customers whose plans pay for out-of-network coverage.

Myste rio us ori gins No one is sure how ice hockey started. Similar games have been played for hundreds of years. These include games played in fields or on the ice with sticks and balls. The first-known indoor hockey game in North America took place in Montreal, Canada, on March 3, 1875. Playi ng the game In ste ad of a bal l, ice ho cke y use s a puck , a fla t, hard rubbe r disk that slides on the ice .

The se lines and zones are import ant to how the spor t is play ed. Blue lines ind icate the offens ive and defen si ve zone s. The are a betwee n the blue lines is called the neutra l zone. The othe r lines on a hocke y rink are the center lin e, or red line, and the goal lines . The puck must enter the offens ive zone before the attac king team’s players. Otherwise, the team is said to be “offside,” and play is stopped. Once the puck is in the offensive zone, it must stay there. If it is hit out of the zone past the blue line, the attacking players must leave the zone before the puck can be played in again .

When a playe r is sent to the penal ty box, the team must play short handed , or witho ut one player. The other team is then on a power play — a one-player advantage. A hockey game begins in the rink’s center circle with the faceoff — a oneon-one competition to control the puck. Faceoffs occur anytime play is stopped, including for goals, penalties or when the puck is hit out of the rink. The Stanley Cup is awarded each year to the NHL champion.

Singapore founder Lee Kuan Yew dies at 91 SINGAPORE (AP) — Lee Kuan Yew, who founded modern Singapore and was both feared for his authoritarian tactics and admired for turning the city-state into one of the world’s richest nations, died Monday, the government said. He was 91. Lee was admitted to Singapore General Hospital on Feb. 5 for severe pneumonia and was later put on life support. The Prime Minister’s Office said Lee “passed away peacefully” at the hospital at 3:18 a.m. Monday. The country’s first and longest-serving prime minister, Lee guided Singapore through a traumatic split with Malaysia in 1965 and helped transform what was then a sleepy port city into a global trade and finance center. He stepped aside and handed over leadership of the ruling party, and the country, to a younger generation in 1990. Still, he remained an influential behindthe-scenes figure for many more years until his health deteriorated. “In the end, my greatest satisfaction in life comes from the fact that I have spent years gathering support, mustering the will to make this place meritocratic, corruption-free and equal for all races — and that it will endure beyond me, as it has,” Lee said in his 2013 book, “One Man’s View of the World.” LEE KUAN YEW FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The roar of mammoth Air Force bombers and tanker planes long has been silenced at the Grand Forks Air Force Base, but backers of the nation’s first unmanned aircraft business park say the drones are creating a buzz. Construction on the Grand Sky grounds likely won’t begin until May, but national and international companies are jockeying for position in the 1.2 million-square-foot park that sits near the former alert pad where bombers and tankers were poised for takeoff on a moment’s notice. North Dakota is one six sites around the country testing unmanned aircraft, for which some Americans have lingering concerns about privacy and safety. The new park’s tenants are likely to be researching and developing drones for a host of applications — farming, law enforcement, energy, infrastructure management, public safety, coastal security, military training, search and rescue and disaster response. Defense technology giant Northrop Grumman, based in Falls Church, Va., already has signed a letter of intent to anchor the park and more big names are likely to follow suit, Grand Sky Development President Tom Swoyer said. He added he met with representatives from two prospective companies last week, including a “household name in the unmanned system industry” that he would not identify. “Companies in the industry are starting to take notice,” Swoyer said. “We’re getting a lot of input.” One company looking to get into the ground floor of Grand Sky is Smart C2, a fledgling software business that picked North Dakota for its home base because of the state’s commitment to unmanned aircraft. Stuart Rudolph, company president and CEO, said the park will have all the key players in one space. “Grand Sky is going to be the melting pot,” Rudolph said. He noted other favorable factors, such as access to talent at the base, University of North Dakota aerospace school and a nearby technical school; government support; private equity financing and lots of airspace. The possibility of competitors locating under the same roof also is a good thing, Rudolph said. “This is too young of an industry to worry about your competition,” he said. “We’re investing in North Dakota because we think this is where the right people are going to come together to solve the problems of the United States.” Not everyone is as optimistic about the future of drones. An Associated Press poll conducted in December showed that 33 percent of Americans oppose using drones to monitor or spray crops, while another third support it. Only 27 percent favor using drones for aerial photography.

NEW YORK (AP) — An ultra-Orthodox Jewish community shattered by the deaths of seven siblings in a house fire carried out their funerals Sunday, a day after a hot plate left on for the Sabbath is believed to have sparked the fire that killed them. The tragedy had some neighborhood Jews reconsidering the practice of keeping hot plates on for the Sabbath, a common modern method of obeying tradition prohibiting use of fire on the holy day. The bodies of the children from the Sassoon family, ages 5 to 16, were being sent to Israel after the funeral for a prompt burial. Flames engulfed their two-story, brick-and-wood home in Brooklyn’s Midwood neighborhood early Saturday, likely after a hot plate left on a kitchen counter set off the fire that trapped the children and badly injured their mother and another sibling, investigators said. “They were so pure,” Gabriel Sassoon said of his children during a eulogy he delivered through sobs. “My wife, she came out fighting.” Both his surviving wife and a daughter — Gayle Sassoon and 14-year-old Siporah Sassoon — remained in critical condition on respirators. “My children were unbelievable. They were the best,” he said, calling them “angels.” The blaze killed three girls and four boys — all members of the neighborhood’s tight-knit community of ultraOrthodox Jews. Authorities identified the victims as girls Eliane, 16; Rivkah, 11; and Sara, 6; and boys David, 12; Yeshua, 10; Moshe, 8; and Yaakob, 5.

Page A6 | The News Herald | Monday, March 23, 2015 Viewpoints BILL D A Y | Cagle Cartoons I t has been an Iranian tradition since 1979 to end Friday prayers with chants of “Death to America!” In a purely rational world, that would be all one needed to know that Iran is not a reliable negotiating partner. Alas, we do not live in such a world. But there’s more evidence. Iran, according to our State Department, has been the chief exporter of terrorism for the last three decades. It has worked closely with alQaida, facilitating its attacks on America and our allies. Most of the Sept. 11 hijackers traveled through Iran with the help of the Iranian government. U.S. judges have ruled that Iran was an accomplice in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in East Africa and the Sept. 11 attacks. During the Iraq war, Iran was responsible for numerous American deaths. And it’s not like any of this is ancient history. Indeed, in 2012, the Treasury Department designated the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security as a major promoter of terrorism and violator of human rights. Right now, via its brutal proxies, Iran is manipulating events on the ground in four Arab capitals — Baghdad, Beirut, Damascus and Sanaa. Whatever success there has been against the Islamic State in Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit has been thanks to Iranian advisors operating in Iraq and the Shiite Muslim militias they control. On Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” retired Adm. Mike Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he fears Iran more than Islamic State. So, obviously, the greatest villain in the world today is ... Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. He led the effort to get 46 other senators to sign a letter to the Iranian government explaining that any deal with Iran would require congressional approval. The New York Daily News branded them all “TRAITORS” on its front page. Isn’t it amazing how even vaguely questioning the patriotism of liberals is an outrage beyond the borders of acceptable debate, but branding 47 GOP senators “traitors” is treated as at least forgivable bombast? Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton told the Washington Post they aren’t traitors, they’re merely “mutinous,” revealing Eaton’s shocking ignorance of our constitutional structure. Yes, Obama is the commander in chief of the armed forces, but he is not the commander in chief of the coequal legislative branch. Petitions are circling to have the senators carted off to jail under the Logan Act — which bars unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments — a ridiculously antiquated law that would never survive Supreme Court scrutiny today. Moreover, if the Logan Act were taken seriously, many of the lions of the Democratic Party, including Ted Kennedy, Patrick Leahy, Nancy Pelosi and Robert Byrd, would have ended their careers behind bars. Why, John Kerry could show Cotton around the federal penitentiary, given Kerry’s egregious meddling in Nicaragua during the Reagan administration. Now, I should say that I think the senators made a mistake. They should have written an open letter to President Obama. The Iranians would still have gotten the message, but the White House and the punditocracy would have found it more difficult to rationalize their insane hissy fit. And contrary to countless outlets reporting that the Republicans “sent” this letter to the ayatollahs, they didn’t send it anywhere. It was posted on Cotton’s website. The more important point here is that no one disagrees with the content of the letter because it is accurate. The White House had to admit that Cotton was right; the deal as it stands would be a “nonbinding” agreement. And, therefore, as the letter explains, “The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen.” (In fact, Obama did pretty much exactly that with an agreement struck between Israel and the United States about settlement growth in Palestinian territories.) This premature admission is politically inconvenient for the Obama administration because it wants to get the United Nations to approve the deal, making it a fait accompli. It hoped to get to that point without anyone noticing. The Cotton letter is not mutinous or traitorous or unconstitutional. It is inconvenient, and apparently being inconvenient in the age of Obama is all it takes to be called unpatriotic.

Box 1940, Panama City, F L 32402; or email to nhletters@pcnh.com 49 FORUM T his session, the Florida Legislature is making an unprecedented commitment to the stewardship of our natural resources by including the development of a broader water policy as a key priority in the shared House and Senate agenda. To the benefit of all Floridians, leaders starting with Gov. Rick Scott, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, House Speaker Steve Crisafulli and Senate President Andy Gardiner are working to solve Florida’s water challenges so that down the road, Florida’s fresh water supply remains clean, abundant and sustainable. Unfortunately, as the policy takes shape — especially in the Florida House, where it passed with bipartisan support — many in the environmental activist community as well as some newspaper editorial boards have attempted to undermine these efforts by spreading half-truths and in some cases, outright falsehoods. These attacks may make great headlines, but they don’t move the ball one iota as lawmakers seek to find common ground on the issue. Take for instance a recent newspaper editorial that inaccurately characterized the House’s water bill as a measure “masquerading as a sound policy for growth.” This sentiment completely ignores the current reality. Florida’s existing water policy doesn’t comprehensively address water resources and fails to consider the specific needs of different regions. Florida is projected to need an additional 1.3 billion gallons of water per day by 2030 to meet future demands. To help prevent this scenario, the House’s proposed water reform includes real solutions focused on growing Florida’s water supply. The House’s proposal has also been unfairly criticized for not addressing conservation. In reality, the bill provides the tools that will allow conservation to work without insisting on a onesize-fits-no-one approach. For example, in Central Florida, it requires the development of a joint regional water supply plan, which already has begun taking shape with the help of the region’s water management stakeholders. The water management districts have identified conservation goals for the plan and plan for some of the necessary long-term shortfalls to come from conservation. The plan also concluded, however, that much conservation had already been done in that region and that, therefore, opportunities for more conservation are limited. Florida already leads the country in its use of reclaimed water, an important form of conservation. Developing new supplies, rather than further conservation requirements, is therefore the logical approach. Opponents of the House water bill have tried to characterize the legislation as benefiting certain utilities when nothing could be further from the truth. There is nothing in the bill suggesting one local utility and its ratepayers will be responsible for paying the costs of developing water supplies of neighboring utilities. In fact, the Central Florida Water Initiative developed an extensive groundwater model to determine which utilities would need to develop alternative sources of supply. Furthermore, pitting “taxpayers” against “utilities” makes no sense. These utilities are local government entities whose rates are paid by the taxpayers. Unfortunately, some critics have attempted to unfairly paint the Florida House as a body indifferent to restoring Florida’s springs. But last year, it was the Florida House that initially proposed historic funding for springs restoration, ultimately leading to $30 million for the effort. The funding provided a substantial boost to efforts to preserve and protect some of Florida’s most precious water bodies. Finally, it’s simply dishonest to criticize the House water bill for something it isn’t. It’s a water policy bill, not a water spending bill. And like last year, the appropriate time to address springs restoration will be when the House and Senate propose a budget later during the Legislative Session. If you support cleaner water, a larger water supply, and more sensible water regulations, there’s a lot to like in the House water bill. But not if you choose to ignore the facts. People who care about making informed arguments can take heart: not everyone engaged in the water debate is slinging mud. Fortunately for all of us, leaders in Tallahassee are listening and carefully considering the facts. T OM F EE N E Y Feeney is the president and CEO of Associated Industries of Florida.

To respond, visit www.newsherald.com Jonah Goldberg Syndicated columnist Get INVOL VED! Math works for manatees T wo years ago, a record 830 manatees died in Florida, easily — and alarmingly — topping the previous high of 766 set in 2010. In February, the state set yet another manatee record — one that generates optimism about the creatures’ future. Officials announced Monday that 6,063 manatees were counted last month, almost 1,000 more than the previous high. The actual number of sea cows is somewhat larger, but experts can only count the ones they see. Warm weather on the counting days brought more manatees to the water’s surface, where they could be spotted and accounted for; colder periods send them into hiding. So some years with cooler temperatures will result in lower counts. Still, the high number is good news for an animal that is listed as endangered, and which during the winters of 2010-13 suffered terrible losses. During that time, Southwest Florida experienced the worst-ever recorded red tide that killed many manatees, and several others died mysteriously in the Indian River Lagoon. State and Central Florida governments have responded to the Indian River Lagoon crisis by crafting new environmental policies designed to reduce the amount of chemicals flushed into area waterways and springs through stormwater runoff. A healthier lagoon and springs can only help the manatee population. Last year, the state recorded only 371 manatee deaths. It’s impossible to determine how much of the improvement in the manatee population could be due to cyclical natural factors, but efforts to reduce man-made risks to the animals surely have contributed to their success. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering downlisting the manatee from endangered to threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. The latest population numbers might warrant the change in status — but not a relaxation in the vigilance to keep these gentle creatures safe and healthy.

Prosecutors formally charge Robert J. Bailey with rst-degree murder in the death of Panama City Beach Then ...... .... and now EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the first of several articles on the Cove section of Panama City. With its many towering moss-draped oaks and spacious older homes overlooking the bay, Massalina Bayou and Watson Bayou, the Cove section of Panama City remains one of the most beautiful locations in this area. Like many other places in Florida, the Cove has its pirate stories. They tell of freebooters using Smack Bayou as their hideout and then sailing across the bay. After climbing the 40foot embankments of the Cove, they stashed their loot and marked these spots in ways identifiable to them. In the 1840s and 1850s, the wooded Cove section became a favorite of men from Marianna and Jackson County who loved to hunt deer, bear, fox, turkeys and other game while their families stayed in their summer residences at Old Town. During the Civil War, the St. Andrew Bay area became known for its salt making and blockade running. At times, blockade runners sought protection in Watson Bayou at the eastern edge of the Cove. On Jan. 22, 1864, Union forces captured the 60-ton schooner William A. Kain, carrying 57 bales of cotton, 2,626 pounds of tobacco and $10,000 in Confederate bonds. The vessel had been painted dark gray to blend in with the surroundings and was awaiting a moonless night to secretly sail down the bay to the safety of the open Gulf. Just before being captured, those on board reportedly tossed the pot of gold they were carrying into the head of the bayou. Although searchers dove in this location for many years, no one ever reported finding this treasure. Refugee camp Rebel troops often spent long hours spying on the extensive government wharf on Redfish Point across from the Cove section where the “government camps” were located. They served as the holding places for many refugees who journeyed to the Gulf shore to be under the protection of the federal government. Some joined the Northern side. A lone burial took place on the western side of the entrance to Watson Bayou. The remains of a sailor who died at sea were carried ashore by shipmates for burial. For many years, the point’s tallest tree marked the unknown seaman’s grave. Other unidentified burials took place by the Indian mounds lining the shore near the present Cove Condominiums. According to historical accounts, Bunker’s Cove took its name from Jonathan Bunker, a marine merchant in Freeport with a fleet of vessels that sailed the Gulf. In the late 1800s, homesteading became popular. During the five years required before obtaining a homestead, those acquiring these properties cut all the good timber then let the land revert back to the government. They especially sought and cut down cedar trees, which were used to make pencils during that period. Few older cedars remained in the Cove after that date. Pears and berries When the Cincinnati Land Company attracted thousands to the bay, William Glover took up a homestead on the eastern side of Watson Bayou. Glover planted several acres of LeConte and Keifer pear trees and hundreds of berry bushes. He named the location “Old Orchard,” for Maine’s famous Orchard Beach Resort. The Glover place became a popular spot for picnics and oyster roasts. The site at the upper end of Watson Bayou became known as “Mount Shasta.” D.H. Thomas, a friend of Glover, homesteaded on the western side of Watson Bayou. Together, these two men organized the Bay Horticultural Society in 1887. They met in the Cove and had a large following for several years. A Capt. Furstlue was reported as owning an attractive home along the Cove’s waterfront. He ran a successful mercantile business and owned a sawmill on Callaway Bayou until he stood trial for murder and agreed to go back North, never to return to this area. Cove ghosts In the 1890s, after the Cincinnati Company failed, a few squatters lived in the Cove section. When they encountered trouble earning a living, they abandoned their places. These dilapidated old structures served as the source for stories about ghosts in the Cove. With the exception of homes along East Beach Drive and the bayous, the Cove for the most part remained undeveloped, much the same as the forest across the bay around Redfish Point. Boaters used the Cove’s wooded slopes to build campfires and fry the fish they caught in the bay. At night, those camping here frequently heard the screams of panthers on the prowl. During the day, black bears could sometimes be seen swimming the bay and lumbering along the beaches. Some of the men living in that section walked to work at the Harrison Mill, located on the shores of the present Johnson Bayou. Workmen hand dug this channel, which was similar to the one that now runs under Beach Drive. They used it to float logs into the holding pond on a good tide. Hunters and Cove residents found game plentiful and often shot their limit of ducks and wild turkeys from their own back porches and yards. Some youngsters amused themselves by diving down to explore the old barge, known as the Bunker. Old-timers who fished the relic said it dated back to the Civil War period. The barge lay offshore a short distance up the bay from what’s now the Panama City Marina to near the present St Andrews Bay Yacht Club. Next week: H.L.

However, the city abandoned that location after Glenwood residents expressed concerns about increased traffic near Oscar Patterson Elementary School in early January. Business owner James Walker has yet to open his natural gas pump at 1607 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. because he had not received a merchant license for the city. He said the pump already has passed inspec tions. He plans to speak at the meeting Tuesday, which starts at 8 a.m. at City Hall, 9 Harrison Ave. “I want to work with the city and the county. Please don’t tie my hands,” he said. “I’ve been held up in red tape for about a month.” City Chief License Inspector Al Hester said the city is considering a 10 percent tax it normally institutes on utilities. State stat ute 366.02 differentiates between utilities and natural gas sold for vehicles. “We’re not giving him the runaround,” Hester said. “This is new territory.” Walker previously said he wanted to build a natural gas station for the city.

Jeff Miller, R-Chumuckla, and Gwen Graham, D-Tallahassee, and Sens. Marco Rubio, R., and Bill Nelson, D. — voted on major issues in the week ending March 20. HOUSE EPA SCIENCE ADVISORY BOARD: Voting 236 for and 181 against, the House on March 17 passed a Republican bill (HR 1029) to reshape the Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board to make it more industry-friendly and less dependent on the views of academic scientists. The board’s mission is to provide independent evaluations of the scientific analyses upon which the EPA bases its regulations, with its 52 members chosen by the EPA administrator and serving without pay. This bill would reduce the number of academic seats on the board while expanding corporate membership; permit experts with financial ties to EPAregulated industries to serve if they disclose their conflictsof-interest; give state, local and tribal governments a guaranteed number of seats and add hurdles that would delay EPA’s rulemaking process. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate, where it may face a 60-vote hurdle. Voting yes: Jeff Miller Voting no: Gwen Graham ASSOCIATION WITH ENVIRONMENTAL CRIMES: Voting 179 for and 237 against, the House on March 17 defeated a Democratic bid to deny Science Advisory Board membership to scientists whose main source of research funding comes from individuals or corporations convicted of major environmental crimes. This motion to HR 1029 specified crimes such as the discharge of toxic materials into drinking water, “refusal to clean up Superfund waste sites or ... the release of air pollutants that endanger human health and safety.” A yes vote was to adopt the motion, which, had it prevailed, would have immediately amended the bill. Voting yes: Graham Voting no: Miller ‘SECRET SCIENCE’ AND THE ENVIRONMENT: Voting 241 for and 175 against, the House on March 18 passed a Republican bill (HR 1030) that would nullify specific rulemakings by the Environmental Protection Agency unless all data from underlying research — including confidential health information about participants — has been made public so that the studies could be independently replicated. Republicans said the bill would promote much-needed transparency at the EPA, while Democrats said it would roll back environmental protection because health studies depend on protecting the privacy rights of participants. Democrats said the bill’s targets include studies by the American Cancer Society and Harvard University that link air pollution to human health and underpin the EPA’s administration of the Clean Air Act. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate, where it may face a 60-vote hurdle. Voting yes: Miller Voting no: Graham PEER-REVIEWED ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE: Voting 184 for and 231 against, the House on March 18 defeated a Democratic amendment to HR 1030 that would continue peer review as the Environmental Protection Agency’s standard for validating the scientific studies upon which its regulations are based. By contrast, the underlying bill regards peer review as less important than transparency of data in evaluating environmental science. In the scientific community, peer review is a discipline in which new research is accepted as credible only after it has been evaluated and verified by experts in the same field. A yes vote was to adopt an amendment in behalf of peer review. Voting yes: Graham Voting no: Miller DISPUTE OVER UNION ELECTIONS: Voting 232 for and 186 against, the House on March 19 approved a Republican resolution (SJ Res 8) that would kill a new National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule compressing the time between the filing of a union-organizing petition and the vote on whether to unionize. Set to take effect April 14, the rule bars litigation intended mainly to delay elections and allows forms to be filed electronically with the NLRB during the election process instead of only by regular mail. In addition, the rule requires employers to provide organizers with workers’ email addresses and cell-phone numbers, going beyond the present requirement to provide only names and home addresses. A yes vote was to send the resolution to President Obama, who is expected to veto it. Voting yes: Miller Voting no: Graham SENATE SEX TRAFFICKING, ABORTION FUNDING: Voting 56 for and 42 against, the Senate on March 19 failed to reach 60 votes needed to end Democratic blockage of a bill (S 178) that would combat sex trafficking while putting limits on abortion funding for its victims. The bill would prohibit its proposed Domestic Trafficking Victims’ Fund from being used to pay for abortions except in extreme instances. Because the fund is to be privately financed by fines and penalties on convicted sex predators, the bill would expand the so-called “Hyde Amendment,” which bars the use of taxpayer (not private) funds to finance abortions except in cases of rape or incest or to save the life of the mother. While Republican supporters called the limits routine, Democratic foes saw them as especially harsh on teenage trafficking victims. The bill would also expand the Hyde Amendment by making it a permanent fixture of the proposed anti-trafficking law. Throughout its 39 years as a rare example of congressional consensus on abortion, the Hyde Amendment has been enacted year-to-year rather than made permanent. A yes vote was to advance the bill. Voting yes: Rubio Voting no: Nelson Cruz to launch 2016 presidential campaign today WASHINGTON (AP) — Texas Repub lican Sen. Ted Cruz will become the first major candidate for president when he launches his campaign today, kicking off what’s expected to be a rush over the next few weeks of more than a dozen White House hopefuls into the 2016 campaign. Cruz will formally get into the race dur ing a morning speech at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. It’s a fitting setting for Cruz, a 44-year-old tea party darling whose entry into the 2016 campaign drew cheers Sunday among fellow conservatives. “The official Republican pool of can didates will take a quantum leap forward with his announcement tomorrow,” said Amy Kremer, the former head of the Tea Party Express. Cruz’s announcement, she said, “will excite the base in a way we haven’t seen in years.” Though Cruz is the first Republican to declare his candidacy, he is all but certain to be followed by several big names in the GOP, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and two Senate colleagues, Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Florida’s Marco Rubio. “Cruz is going to make it tough for all of the candidates who are fighting to emerge as the champion of the anti-establishment wing of the party,” said GOP strategist Kevin Madden. “That is starting to look like quite a scrum where lots of candidates will be throwing some sharp elbows.” T ED C RU Z

The Parker City Council adopted the ordinance Tuesday, and the biggest change was to accessory dwelling units. New, free-standing accessory units are now prohibited within residential areas, although any existing structures are grand fathered in. City Clerk Nancy Row ell said the primary reason for this change was the possibility of resi dents renting out units originally intended for family members as a way to circumvent density require ments in the city’s zoning code. For instance, Planning Board Member Danny Oliver has an accessory dwelling unit he built for his son. Residents still will have the ability to add on to their house or make interior alterations, but the house will need to meet setback and other lot requirements, Rowell said. “Why do we care to regulate how big the house is?” Rowell said of the consideration. Councilman John Haney voted against the land development regu lation changes because he felt the change to accessory dwelling units infringed on the rights of property owners. Rowell said residents will be able to apply for a zoning change, but compatibility with surrounding uses will be considered. The council also matched the comprehensive plan and develop ment regulations with mixed-use and light commercial. Commercial was included in the definition of mixed use. Certain businesses that are loud or smelly are prohibited: automobile services, skating rinks, bowling alleys and manufactured home repair shops, for instance.

PAYING IT FORWARD By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — A group of local business owners paid it forward Fri day, surprising the operator of a St. Andrews art studio and gallery with a “cash mob.” Every month, a group known as the Loyal to Local Cash Mob surprises a different Bay County business by assembling a large group to make pur chases or donations. “It’s local people wanting to help out their community getting together and mobbing a local business,” said Kristi Kirkland, who launched the effort about two years ago. “They just need that little boost from the community. It’s just to remind people to get back to supporting local businesses.” Kirkland, the owner of Answer Mar keting in Panama City, came up with the idea after stumbling upon informa tion about a cash mob event in Illinois while doing research for a client. “At the time, flash mobs were the thing,” she said. “I thought it would be a really great way for us to get back in the community at some of these little, hole-in-the-wall businesses we some times forget about.” Mobbed businesses are chosen through a nomination process by the group, which puts an emphasis on businesses and organizations that give back to the community. Chosen businesses are kept a secret until the event takes place to be sure the cash mob comes as a surprise. Kirkland said the group chose Floriopolis on Friday based on its Local ‘cash mob’ supports small businesses in Panama City By AMANDA BANKS 522-5118 |@pcnhamanda abanks@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — An annual high school homage is coming up as a local organization prepares for its biggest fundraiser of the year. The Boys and Girls Club of Bay County, which provides after-school and summer care and enrichment programs for disadvantaged children, will pres ent its Sixth Annual Sec ond Chance Prom on April 4 at Boardwalk Beach Resort. “What it is is a do-over for adults. If you didn’t get to go to prom, if you didn’t like your prom, if you had so much fun at your prom that you want to do it again, we offer that chance,” said Kel lie Mitchum, executive assistant and development director for the Boys and Girls Club of Bay County. The event will feature dinner, dancing, games, a silent auction and live entertainment by Lucky Town, Mitchum said. A prom king and queen also will be named. Mitchum said there are several candidates from local businesses in the run ning. They are out fundraising for the clubs, and the pair that brings in the most money will take the crowns. According to Mitchum, the compe tition is close, with the candidates “neck-and-neck” for now. “This is where most of our funds come in from our community each year to allow us to keep the doors open for the kids,” Mitchum said. Individual tickets for the event are $70 each, and tables are $500 for eight seats or $275 for four seats. To purchase tickets or for more informa tion, contact the Boys and Girls Club of Bay County at 763-2076.

You’re never too late for prom Boys & Girls Club to hold ‘Second Chance’ April 4 Partly sunny. What’s up with that? We don’t want partly mister we want full on sun. We have license plates in your honor. Sunshine State. The folks in Panama City Beach should have the courage of Ft. Lauderdale in banning Spring Break. I vote for banning open alcohol containers on the beach, sleeping in cars on the beach and parking overnight on the beach...just do it. EMS is used a lot during spring break. That may be so, but isn’t that their job? Some talk like SB’s don’t deserve treatment! So spring break is banned, then what? Will no visitors be allowed to come here? Is that the plan? Stay stuck in the last century forever! Spring is here. I’m so excited I wet my plants. Businesses continue to move out of Panama City and their response is to propose more “restrictions” to impede businesses. “Raise Tax Revenues” to cover ambulance deficit? Bay County leaders must make better decisions. Privatize this service ASAP. I’m voting out county commissioners next time even if it’s a democrat. Making me pay full ride on ambulance when I have insurance! Burning your trash in PCB is illegal. Stop so we can breathe! Think about your neighbors. The church hymnal should be re-“choir”-ed reading. Go in & ask the Verizon Store how many phones are reported stolen each day, that’ll give you a minor crime report. The number is outrageous. It is a conflict of interest for beach business people to hold PCB city office. It’s like the fox guarding the hen house. Gulf Power. They may have the power but not over me. I have the power of my purse and they won’t get a penny until their power is rescinded. They’ve reopened the case on humpty dumpty.

Heather Parker, who operates Floriopolis, described Friday’s cash mob as “super.” “The more people that know about us the better,” she said. “It’s fantastic.” Floriopolis, which cel ebrated its one-year anni versary in January, is a nonprofit community art center and gallery, with works from more than 100 artists on display. The center also offers classes, workshops and other artrelated events throughout the week. “Every piece is made by a local artist,” Parker said. “We’re a nonprofit, so everything goes back into the center.” Cash mob participant Teresa Holley said the Loyal to Local group eas ily can relate because they are all small business own ers themselves. Holley, the owner of Tradebank in Panama City, said the mob often provides a big enough boost to help busi nesses get ahead. “Usually in one day, it can pay their rent for a whole month,” Holley said. “It’s all about paying it forward.” 6 a.m Noon 6 p.m Low Hazard Medium Hazard High Hazard Water closed to public Dangerous Marine Life High Low 72/54 75/57 76/52 73/55 73/56 75/51 72/53 73/51 71/52 60/42 75/51 73/51 78/54 77/56 80/59 79/55 78/55 75/57 74/59 77/62 79/60 71/50 Nice with partial sunshine A t-storm in spots in the afternoon Partly sunny A couple of t-storms; not as warm 75 67 73 69 57 Winds: E 6-12 mph Winds: SE 6-12 mph Winds: WSW 7-14 mph Winds: N 8-16 mph Winds: W 6-12 mph Blountstown 11.93 ft. 15 ft.

By unanimous vote at a spe cial meeting March 12, the board approved Superintendent Nina Marks’ recommendation to termi nate for cause David Meyer, who handled information technology (IT) for the district before being returned to the classroom two years ago. According to a March 4 petition for dismissal, Meyer, a teacher employed under a professional services contract often known as “tenure,” violated several rules of conduct relating to the Inter net, including “unauthorized sites, pornography, unauthorized equipment, refusing to follow directives, allowing unauthorized student access, and representing an unwarranted risk of viruses and disruption of the district’s network.” In a Feb. 23 letter, Marks cited sections of School Board policy relating to “conduct unbecoming of an employee,” which she said include “immorality, incompe tency, gross insubordination and other actions which substantially impair the effectiveness of the employee.” “It’s sad for someone who has served for so many years, and his family, for something like this to take place,” said School Board Member Teresa Ann Martin. “We have policies and we have pro cedures, and we have to act on them.” Marks initially made her recommendation at the March 5 regular meeting, but after a lengthy discussion among School Board Attorney Barbara Sanders, Marks’ attorney Bob Harris, and the attorney hired by the teach ers union to defend Meyer, Ron Stowers, it was agreed to wait a week to give Marks and Meyer an opportunity to conduct the predetermination hearing required under the collective bargaining agreement. Meyer then was sus pended with pay as he awaited the board’s decision. On the advice of his attorney, Meyer did not attend either of the two School Board meetings. Tony Gentile, a field staffer with the Florida Education Association, was the only person at the meet ing who spoke in Meyer’s defense, indicating from the audience he opposed termination. Stowers said the decision not to defend Meyer before the board was not an admission of guilt; law yers plan a vigorous defense when the time comes to conduct a full hearing and an airing of the facts surrounding the case. He said Meyer has left open the options of either going to the Division of Administrative Hear ings in Tallahassee, or to arbitra tion, and that a decision would be made soon. Meyer, a 24-year veteran teacher who now instructs three students as part of an alterna tive education program for those with discipline issues, has tried to adapt to a challenging situation, Stowers said. The attorney said Meyer brought in his personal computer because the school’s equipment was damaged. “Keyboards were broken, one laptop was hooked up to a microscope, and the other one was used because there was dam age to a computer,” Stowers said. “Instead of having it fixed, he tried to impress on students that they shouldn’t damage equipment.” Stowers said he has yet to see what movies or software are alleged to have been pirated. “There are some leaps made in there as to why things were on the computer,” he said. Stowers said it appears one of the students, outside of Meyer’s view, downloaded the graphic materials in rapid succession. The lawyer also defended Mey er’s having materials relating to hacking, because running the IT program had been his former job within the district. “That doesn’t mean just because you change jobs you lose interest in the things you’re inter ested in,” Stowers said. “People want to keep abreast of the stuff that’s out there.” DA VI D AD LERSTEIN | The Times Robert Harris, left, attorney for Superintendent Nina Marks, and Ron Stowers, attorney representing David Meyer, confer with School Board Attorney Barbara Sanders at a March 5 meeting in Franklin County. On the advice of his attorney, Meyer did not attend the board meeting.

Details of the charges against 62-year-old Jose Lan tigua are unclear. But Saturday’s arrest ends two years of speculation about whether the former furniture store owner had faked an illness in 2013 while vacationing in Venezuela, leaving his business millions of dollars in debt. His life insurance companies thought they were being swindled and launched an investigation saying the busi nessman was not dead after two lenders filed claims. The lawsuits by Hartford Life and Annuity Life Insur ance Co. also alleged a worker was bribed to falsify docu ments stating the businessman’s body was cremated. They also claim Lantigua fraudulently assigned benefits claims to a local creditor before he disappeared. Lantigua’s son accused the insurance company of falsifying its investigation into his father’s death, accusing the company of lying about the Venezuelan government revoking his father’s death certificate. The newspaper reported that the insurance company admitted a Venezuelan lawyer did alter documents to make it seem like the Venezuelan government nullified the death certificate. A judge ruled the papers were faked, but could not determine who faked them. Fast forward to Saturday when officials stopped a car Lantigua was driving in with his wife in Buncombe County, N.C. A Jacksonville prosecutor said Lantigua faces insur ance fraud charges in Florida involving policies worth $9 million from seven companies.

The Florida Legislature appears poised to pass a bill that would legalize 64-ounce refillable beer jugs or “growlers,” which are legal in every other state. Florida already allows quart and gal lon growlers, but the popular half-gallon became a pawn in a battle over the com plex laws regulating brewing and sale of beer. Politically powerful distributors of Anheuser-Busch, the makers of Budweiser, effectively blocked legislation legalizing growlers as they sought to preserve the legal structure on which their business is built. The result was a political headache for the majority Republicans in the Florida Legislature. They appeared to side against the small businesses and entrepreneurs they profess to love, and in favor of govern ment regulation. “People sense that the big guy is beating up on the little guy and it just feels wrong,” said state Rep. Dana Young, R-Tampa, a growler backer. “It’s been making the gov ernment look bad.” She blamed the history of beer industry regulation and “the dominance of the beer distributor lobby.” Grass-roots support and craft beer’s role as a tourism driver has changed the tide, Young said. “The outcry from the general public and the absurdity of the law is finally being heard.” Under Florida’s three-tiered regulation system, brewers must sell to distributors, who then sell to retailers. There was a decades-old exception that allowed brewers to sell beer at their breweries, an exemption intended to allow Tampa’s Busch Gardens amusement park to sell beer to visitors. Under a separate law enacted before craft breweries became popular in Florida, beer can only be sold in containers up to a quart or a gallon or more, which makes the half-gallon growler favored by beer enthu siasts illegal. “It’s four U.S. pints — that means I can have two and you can have two,” said Carol Dekkers — just right for an evening at home with a craft beer. Dekkers, a Zephyrhills software engineer, calls the ban on half-gallon growlers “short-sighted and arbitrary.” In last year’s legislative session, it appeared that the ban would finally be lifted, but beer distributors succeeded in adding conditions to legislation that craft brewers said would drive them out of business. For example, it would have forced all but the smallest breweries to sell their own bottles and cans of beers to distributors and then buy them back before they could sell them to brewery visitors. The bill died. This year’s bill by Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, is advancing with no such conditions. Eric Criss, a lobbyist who represents Miller/Coors distributors, said the regula tory structure isn’t simply for distributors’ protection, but is intended in part to pre vent large breweries from monopolizing the market. Legislature on verge of legalizing growlers L OCA L & S TATE Briefs Wire and staff reports PANAMA CITY Man arrested in robbery case Police have arrested a man they believe committed a string of robberies in Panama City and Lynn Haven. Panama City Police were tipped off that Rey Augosto-Zeno, who had been on the run since Friday, was hiding in a wooded area in the 3300 block of Frankford Avenue, officials reported in a Sunday morning news release. U.S. Marshals and PCPD officers assigned to the U.S. Marshals Regional Task Force entered the area and located AugostoZeno, who fled, according to the release. Officers apprehended Augosto-Zeno after a foot chase through the wooded area, and he was taken to the Panama City Police Department for questioning, police reported. The news release did not say when they apprehended him. Police said they believe Augosto-Zeno attempted to rob the VJ Mart, 2112 Frankford Ave., Thursday about 7:15 p.m. The suspect had just attempted to snatch money from a register once it was opened and then fled when the attempt was thwarted. Hours later, a man fitting the description of the other crimes walked into the Express Lane, 123 W. 23rd St., at about 12:50 a.m. Friday and asked the clerk to make change. When she opened the cash register, the man lunged forward and snatched an undisclosed amount of cash. He then fled on foot toward a bank parking lot next door. At about 3 a.m., the man again appeared in Lynn Haven at the Tom Thumb, 2301 State 390, where again he reached into the clerk’s register after asking for change, according to Lynn Haven Police chief David Messer. Thirty minutes later, a customer in line at the Redline, 3000 U.S. 98, reached over the counter and snatched an undisclosed amount of cash from the register. A witness told police the man fled the store and hopped in a black, two-door Nissan. After he was questioned, officials transported Augosto-Zeno to the Bay County Jail and turned him over to deputies on warrants for robbery. WEST BAY One injured in State 79 crash Michael Elton Barrow was driving southbound on State 79 north of State 388 when he went onto the road’s median and traveled about 1,100 feet before crossing into the northbound lanes and onto the east shoulder of the road, officials said. His vehicle, a 2012 Honda Accord, hit a culvert and a guy wire and continued traveling into the wood line, where the front of the vehicle hit a tree. The vehicle then overturned and came to rest facing south on the east shoulder of State 79, officials said. Barrow was taken to Bay Medical Center in critical condition, officials said. PALM BAY Mom charged with fatally stabbing kids skips court date A Central Florida woman charged with fatally stabbing her two children and seriously injuring her baby has waived her right to a court appearance. Instead of appearing before a judge Sunday, Jessica Lacey McCarty chose to remain in custody, where she is under a special medical watch.

Check out the new, free JUSTJUMBLE app MONDAY, MARCH 23, 2015 ARIES (March 21-April 19): When you can’t exactly choose what you want, you may as well want what you already have. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The fog may veil that beautiful view on the horizon, but when it lifts — and it always lifts — you’ll once again see the possibilities. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Getting to know a person will be as exciting as traveling to a new place. If you can get a peek into someone’s private environment, you’ll learn much more than you would from spending hours with this person in public. CANCER (June 22-July 22): Don’t quit too easily or too soon. Keep going. You don’t have to be brash or abrasive about it. In fact, you’re better off subtly, unobtrusively hanging in there. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can mend whatever cracks, but whether it’s a vase or a reputation, the damage will be visible. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The lessons of early life are the hardest to unlearn. Mostly, that’s a positive — you’ve learned key behaviors to survive and thrive. Still, there is some misinformation from your early days. Retrain! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Keep that pleasant demeanor. It might mean taking snacks so you don’t get hungry or arranging your own transportation, as no one likes to feel that they are trapped into leaving when the other person decides to. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Big problems can be broken down into smaller ones and then dealt with one at a time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It doesn’t matter how things were done before. The players are new; the situation is new; this is a new age. Brainstorm solutions to fit this fresh situation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The thing you thought you were doing just for the fun of it is now turning into a competition. Offer enough game to make it interesting for all, but not enough to turn this into something more serious than it should be. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The reason there are so many people in your network of friends, colleagues and customers is that you continue to be resourceful, sincere, friendly, low-key and all-around pleasant. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If you’re not amused, you’re not learning. Blame the environment, the instructor or anything but yourself. Workplace issues include sneaking, peeking, crushing DEAR AMY: I recently discovered, by accident, something very personal and private about my boss. While I understand this discovery reveals a personal lifestyle choice for him, I am grossed out and disgusted by his choices. I am also very angry with my boss for putting me in a position of stumbling across this information. It was available on a company computer that he was fully aware I had access to. The other side to this is that I have always respected and admired him and I realize that he is, in fact, not a different person — just my perception of him has changed. I guess I am looking for advice on how to handle my thoughts and actions toward him, now that I know what I know. WISH I DIDN’T KNOW DEAR WISH: I gather your boss was not online shopping the J.Crew spring line on the company computer, but in the absence of other details one can only imagine what you stumbled across. I’m going to assume that he is viewing something or engaging in an online activity that is highly inappropriate but not illegal (obviously, if so, you should contact the police). If he is viewing pornography on a company computer, he probably is violating company policy. Same with gambling, hooking up through Tinder or many other activities. Where I work, employees are periodically reminded that all computer use is subject to monitoring. You should email your boss, “I noticed you didn’t log out of your account yesterday.” You needn’t supply details. If this happens again, you should take this problem to your company’s HR department. DEAR AMY: About a month ago I developed a crush on a man. I consider him a friend, but I highly doubt the feeling is mutual. My point is, he is married and I do have boundaries. I have never flirted with him, because I know it’s not right or fair to him or his wife. But I really do like him. I’ve tried to get him off my mind and move on, but nothing seems to work. I would like to remain friends with him but I want to stop “crushing” on him. Is there a way to get over a crush without necessarily tuning him out or ignoring him? We work together, so the loss of communication wouldn’t be good. I have tried asking other people for help and they all called me a “husband-stealer.” Since I’m not trying to steal him away (because I care about his happiness), I would like not to get harsh judgment, just helpful advice. What should I do? CRUSHED CO-WORKER DEAR CRUSHED: The way out of this is to confine contact with your co-worker to business matters. You might be tempted to disclose your feelings to him or to others — but you must resist. You should also dig deep within yourself for whatever lesson you can glean from this episode, whether it is that you are lonely, needy or eminently deserving of love from the right person. You must give and receive love only when doing so doesn’t hurt others. That’s the ethical path, and you should gain strength from walking it. DEAR AMY: “Mourning Mom” had a baby and a husband who insisted he didn’t want another. Our son-inlaw had a crazy notion like this too. Our very wise daughter waited a bit and one day said, “I think Jack (our grandson) needs a sibling.” It opened up a new line of thinking, and we now have three grandchildren. HAPPY GRAN DEAR GRAN: I hope he’s happy, too.

Sirica read aloud a letter he’d received from James W. McCord Jr. which said there had been “political pressure” to “plead guilty and remain silent.” 1983 — President Ronald Reagan rst proposed developing technology to intercept incoming enemy missiles — an idea that came to be known as the Strategic Defense Initiative. Dr. Barney Clark, recipient of a Jarvik permanent articial heart, died at the University of Utah Medical Center after 112 days with the device.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: tinyurl.com/NHSports Twitter: @NH_Sports www.newsherald.com/sports MONDAY March 23, 2015 TALLAHASSEE (AP) — When the ball goes up in the Florida State and Florida Gulf Coast matchup both teams will be off and running. Both like to play up-tempo on offense and apply plenty of defensive pressure. They will square off tonight with a berth in the Sweet 16 awaiting the winner. The Seminoles (30-4) won an NCAA Tournament opening round game for the 12th straight time dating back to 1991 with a 91-49 blowout of Alabama State on Saturday. FGCU (31-2), seven seed, outlasted Oklahoma State 75-67 for its first women’s NCAA Division I tourney win. “We know what we’re going up against, we’ve seen them play,” FGCU junior guard Kaneisha Atwater said. “It’s time for business.” Both teams have topped the century mark in games this season. The secondseeded Seminoles are averaging 76 points a game and posted a seasonbest 110 in a Jan. 25 runaway over Wake Forest; FGCU, a No. 7 seed, averaged 72.6 points a game and scored 102 points on Nov. 23 against Ave Maria, a private Catholic university in Southwest Florida that plays in the NAIA. “We’ve got to come up with a game plan where we use our strengths,” Florida State coach Sue Semrau said of the showdown with FGCU. “Some varying styles and yet some similarities.” university in Southwest Florida that plays in the “We’ve got to come up with a game plan where we use our strengths,” Florida State coach Sue Semrau said of the showdown with FGCU. “Some varying styles and yet some similarities.” MEN’S COVERAGE, C2 • WOMEN’S COVERAGE, C3 FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — Brad Keselowski roared past Kurt Busch on the final lap and held off streaking Kevin Harvick to win at Fontana on Sunday, earning his first NASCAR victory of the season in a wild finish. Harvick fell just short of a three-race West Coast sweep, but finished second to extend his remarkable streak of top-two Sprint Cup finishes to eight races dating to last season. Richard Petty holds the NASCAR record with 11 straight in 1975. Keselowski led only one lap in his Team Penske Ford, but capitalized on two late restarts to a green-whitecheckered finish. “I knew (Harvick) and (Busch) had been the class of the weekend and deserved to win on speed,” Keselowski said after his 17th career Sprint Cup victory. “Maybe we kind of stole one today.” After getting four tires on the first late caution, Keselowski then slipped underneath Busch for the decisive pass, taking full advantage of the California speedway’s wide racing surface. He had never finished better than 18th on this track, which he called the best in NASCAR last week. “Feel like today is the day we break our (Fontana) curse,” Keselowski tweeted Sunday morning. Busch, who won the pole, finished third in his second race back from suspension, clipping the wall on his final lap in a desperate attempt to catch up. He hasn’t won since last March at Martinsville, but has two top-five finishes since his return from a three-race ban. Busch’s girlfriend accused him of domestic assault, but he wasn’t charged. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Travis Trice received a text message Sunday from Golden State Warriors forward and former Michigan State player Draymond Green that read: “Don’t let this be your last game.” The Spartans’ senior guard texted back, “It won’t.” Trice made sure of that Sunday, scoring 23 points and helping Michigan State knock second-seeded Virginia out of the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year, 60-54. The 6-foot, 175-pound Trice scored 13 of his team’s first 15 points on 5-of-5 shooting, including three 3-pointers, to help the Spartans build a 15-4 lead. Branden Dawson added 15 points and nine rebounds for the seventh-seeded Spartans, who advanced to the Sweet 16 for the seventh time in the last eight seasons under coach Tom Izzo. “Our thing was attack from the get go and get a lead,” said Trice, in his first full season as a starter after three years as a reserve. “It was his time to shine,” said Dawson, who started playing with Trice in AAU ball. With top seed Villanova having lost Saturday, it is the first time a No. 1 and 2 seed from the same region didn’t advance to the Sweet 16 since Kentucky and Gonzaga in 2004. The Cavaliers (30-4), the first Atlantic Coast Conference team to lose after a 9-0 start in the tournament, were led by Anthony Gill’s 11 points and Darion Atkins’ 10 points and 14 rebounds. Izzo made some defensive tweaks to his game plan after Michigan State’s first-round win over Georgia, and the Spartans (25-11) stole a page from last year’s regional semifinal win by limiting the Cavaliers to 29.8 percent shooting. Virginia finished 2 of 17 from 3-point range. Izzo said the Spartans “changed what we do” defensively in a day-and-a-half. Instead of having his guards jump to the ball and give help, Izzo relied more on his big men in the middle to stay disciplined — and not cheat or go for steals — and guard against Virginia’s flare screens.

BRITTANY BROWN FSU, Florida Gulf Coast should be up-tempo matchup TV FSU vs. FGCU, today at 5 p.m. on ESPNU Every takes Bay Hill title for second straight year ORLANDO (AP) — Matt Every won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the second straight year, making an 18-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole at Bay Hill to beat Henrik Stenson and earn another trip back to the Masters. Every rallied from a fourshot deficit last year for his first career victory. This one was even sweeter. He came from three shots behind Sunday with a 6-under 66, and he had to make the biggest putt of his career to get that handshake with the tournament host. “The one on 18, straight downhill,” Every said. “That’s what you want under pressure.” Stenson closed with a 70 and extended a curious streak on the PGA Tour. It was the ninth straight tournament in which a 54-hole leader failed to win, and the Swede let this one get away. He regained the lead with birdies on the 11th and 12th holes as Morgan Hoffmann began to fade, and Stenson had a one-shot lead with four holes to play. But he threeputted from 45 feet on the 15th, and three-putted again for par from 40 feet on the fringe at the par-5 16th. Needing a birdie to force a playoff, Stenson was wide left on a 20-foot putt at the 18th. Every finished at 19-under 269 and became the first player since Payne Stewart in 1987 to win at Bay Hill with all four rounds in the 60s. A year ago, Every missed a 4-foot par putt on the 18th hole and had to wait a nervous 10 minutes to see if anyone could catch him. This time, he had no room for error. With a confident swing that held up all week, he drilled his drive down the left side of the fairway and hit his approach above the hole to set up his birdie. He joined Tiger Woods and Loren Roberts as the only players to repeat at Arnie’s place. Woods won four in a row, and back-toback on two other occasions. Roberts, like Every, won his first two PGA Tour titles at Bay Hill. Matt Jones birdied three of his last four holes for a 68 to finish alone in third. Hoffmann had a 2-shot lead after a birdie on the eighth hole, but it was a struggle the rest of the way. Stenson caught him on the 11th, and Hoffmann made bogey on his next two holes to fall three shots behind.

(AP) — Jahlil Okafor scored 18 of his 26 points in a dominating first half and Duke beat San Diego State 68-49 on Sunday in the NCAA Tournament, sending the top-seeded Blue Devils back to the Sweet 16. Fellow freshman Justise Winslow added 13 points and 12 rebounds for Duke (31-4), which for the second straight tournament game ran out to a quick lead and stayed in control the rest of the way. Duke — holding a No. 1 seed for the 11th time in 18 seasons but its first since 2011 — advanced to face fifth-seeded Utah in Houston’s South Region semifinals. Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Dev ils are pushing for their 12th Final Four and completed their two-game stay in their home state with a pair of hot-shooting wins. Duke shot 55 percent against the eighth-seeded Aztecs (27-9), two days after shooting 63 percent against Robert Morris. Fittingly it was Okafor, the big man who has powered Duke’s offense all season, who led the way Sunday. The 6-foot-11 freshman showed a full range of elite moves in the open ing half. He scored with his back to the basket. He put the ball on the floor from about 10 feet and drove for scores. He ran the court for a dunk on a beautiful Cook-to-Jonesto-Okafor push downcourt. The Aztecs, despite having some size to wrestle with him, had no way to stop him. Meanwhile, Winslow put on his own show with five assists and one jaw-dropping block on JJ O’Brien at the rim. That set the ball loose in transition for Quinn Cook to bury a 3-pointer, then pretend to holster pistols as he turned to run back up the court — a sign that the Blue Devils were completely at ease and rolling with a confident strut. The Aztecs were trying to reach the Sweet 16 for the third time under coach Steve Fisher, but San Diego State — with a few players and coaches battling a stomach ail ment — got off to a bad start and struggled to get Duke to slow down early. TOURNAMENT GLANCE Duke overwhelms San Diego State OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — No wonder Kansas never wants anything to do with Wichita State. Behind another steady performance from Fred VanVleet and the hot shooting of Evan Wessel, the No. 7 seed Shockers rolled past the second-seeded Jayhawks 78-65 on Sunday, earning a trip to the Sweet 16 at the expense of the school that has caused them so much chagrin. Tekele Cotton led the way with 19 points for the Shockers (30-4). VanVleet finished with 17 and Wessel hit four 3-pointers and scored 12, sending the Missouri Valley champions to Cleveland for the Midwest Regional semifinal against thirdseeded Notre Dame. Devonte’ Graham and Perry Ellis had 17 points each, and Frank Mason added 16 for the Jayhawks (27-9), who blew an early eight-point lead and never really threatened in the second half. As the final seconds ticked away, VanVleet started riling up an already boisterous section of Shockers fans. And when the game ended, coach Gregg Marshall strode across the floor with a wry smile on his face, reaching out to shake hands with several of them. Wichita State has tried for years to schedule a game against the Jayhawks, but the Sunflower State’s dominant program has always refused. It took the will of the NCAA Tournament selection committee to finally bring them together for the first time since 1993. The buzz began building for the showdown on Selection Sunday, when the game fans have been pining for was still merely a possibility. But by the time the Jayhawks beat New Mexico State and the Shockers had survived Indiana, that buzz had grown to a deafening roar. With such pent-up emotion, the start was pre dictably sloppy. The Shockers, who had seven turnovers total against the Hoosiers, had that many in the first half. Kansas fouled so often that Wichita State spent more time in the bonus than getting there. It wasn’t even halftime yet when blood was first spilled. VanVleet was driving to the rim when his elbow caught Ellis’s nose, sending the Wichita native sprawling to the floor. Red droplets started sliding down his chin, and Ellis retreated to the locker room. When he returned, he had wads of cotton stuffed up his nostrils. The Jayhawks were leading 24-16 at that point, but the Shockers pounced on their opportunity with Ellis off the floor. They never allowed Kansas another field goal the final 6 minutes, going on a 13-2 closing kick that gave them a 29-26 lead at the break. Ultimately, the Shockers never trailed again. Led by the calm, cool play of VanVleet at the point, and with Wessel knocking down just about every 3-pointer he tried, the Shockers had an answer for every salvo from the Big 12 champs. After they had extended their lead to 54-40, and the Jayhawks scored five quick points to energize their fans, unheralded reserve Zach Brown got loose for an easy dunk. When the Jayhawks scored four quick points to trim their deficit to 63-55 with 6 minutes to go, Wichita State broke their full-court press and Darius Carter breezed in for layup. Kansas coach Bill Self had burned through all of his timeouts by then, trying in vain to turn the momentum. And as the final few minutes ticked off the clock, all those Shockers fans that had felt slighted by their Kansas counterparts for most of 8,110 days began to cheer. AP Wichita State’s Tekele Cotton shoots over Kansas’ Kelly Oubre Jr. AP Gonzaga players react after beating Iowa. SHOCKING No. 7 seed Wichita State rolls past No. 2 Kansas 78-65 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Jordan Wood ard had 16 points and a steal that set up Buddy Hield for a layup to give Oklahoma a lead it never relinquished, and the Soon ers quieted Dayton and its fans as they advanced with a 72-66 victory Sunday. Sooners coach Lon Kruger became the second coach to take four schools (Kan sas State, Florida and UNLV) to the round of 16. Third-seeded Oklahoma (24-10) will play Michigan State on Friday at the East Regional in Syracuse, New York. The Flyers (27-9), who started in the First Four at home, came up a victory short of their second straight trip to the Sweet 16 as an 11th seed. Hield scored 15 points, including a layup off a feed from Woodard at 5:56 that made it 57-56. Oklahoma rallied with its defense, holding Dayton scoreless for 9:04 and with out a basket for 10:32 in the second half. Scoochie Smith led Dayton with 16 points. Dayton fell behind by double digits early as the Sooners knocked down three straight 3s to start the game. Playing for the sixth time in 10 days, it was fair to wonder if the Flyers were finally running out of energy, even while getting a boost by another par tisan and passionate crowd at Nationwide Arena. The Flyers steadied themselves in the first half and they were the stronger team to start the second half. A 9-0 run, capped by a beat-the-shot-clock 3 by Darrell Davis at 13:40 put Dayton up 46-40 and got OU to call a timeout. It didn’t immediately help. Pierre knocked down another 3 and Dayton had its biggest lead, 49-40. Sooners quiet Flyers; move on Gonzaga headed back to Sweet 16 SEATTLE (AP) — Kyle Wiltjer and Kevin Pangos met at halfcourt for a hug and a high five. Gone are the questions about Gonzaga’s five-year run of failing to advance from the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs are back in the Sweet 16. Wiltjer scored 13 of his 24 points during Gonzaga’s flawless first half, Domantas Sabonis added 18 points and the secondseeded Bulldogs advanced to the round of 16 for the first time since 2009 with a 87-68 win over No. 7 seed Iowa in a South Region matchup on Sunday. After five straight departures on the first weekend, the Bulldogs (34-2) are back in the regional semifinals, thanks to an efficient offensive performance in the first 20 min utes that Iowa could never overcome. Wiltjer made his first six shots before finally missing a 3-point attempt midway through the second half. Sabonis added eight in the first half, including a thunder ing left-handed dunk that was followed by a scream that had KeyArena roaring just like Gonzaga’s home gym. Jared Uthoff led Iowa (22-12) with 20 and Aaron White added 19. Gonzaga will make just its third appear ance on the second weekend of the tourna ment since 2001. After looking less than impressive in an opening victory over 15th-seeded North Dakota State, the Bull dogs dominated Iowa from the start. OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Sam Dekker scored 17 points and led four Wisconsin players in double digits, and the No. 1-seeded Badgers are headed back to the Sweet 16 after defeating Oregon 72-65 in the NCAA Tournament on Sunday night. The Badgers (33-3) beat the Ducks (26-10) in the round of 32 for the second straight year and will go to Los Angeles to play fourth-seeded North Carolina in the Sweet 16 on Thursday. It’s the fourth time in five years the Badgers made the regional semifinals. Wisconsin played with the lead all game until Dwayne Benjamin tied it at 52 with a 3-pointer from in front of his bench with 5:27 left. The Badgers took the lead right back, though, with Dekker’s reverse layup and 3-pointer to make it 58-52. Joseph Young, who scored 27 points in a win over Oklahoma State on Friday, had 30 against the Badgers. Wisconsin got 16 points from Frank Kaminsky, 14 from Nigel Hayes and 12 from Bron son Koenig. Jalil Abdulu-Bassit had 12 points for the Ducks, who were trying to get to the Sweet 16 for the second time in three years. The size advantage that Wisconsin was sup posed to enjoy against Oregon wasn’t much of an advantage at all. Oregon outrebounded the Badgers 34-32, out scored them 30-24 in the lane and had four blocks to Wisconsin’s three. The Ducks came back from an 11-point deficit to hang around almost to the end. This game was much different than the one these two teams played a year ago. Wisconsin had to erase a double-digit lead in the second half to get past the Ducks. The Badgers never trailed this time. Kaminsky, who had 27 points and 12 rebounds in a win over Coastal Carolina on Friday, was quiet for long stretches Sunday. But he had more help around him than Young did. The 7-foot Kaminsky went right at the basket on the first possession of the game. But as the half went on, the Ducks, who have only one starter taller than 6-6, were able to neutralize Kaminsky and the 6-9 Dekker. Dekker’s 17 helps Wisconsin top Oregon

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Facing an Iowa team loaded with shoot ers, Miami had to let someone go. The Hurricanes decided on center Bethany Doolittle — and the 6-foot4 Iowa senior made them pay for it. Doolittle scored 22 points, Ally Disterhoft had 15 and third-seeded Iowa beat 11th-seeded Miami 88-70 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday, earning its first trip to the Sweet 16 since 1996. “That team is full of great play ers and she just had a great perfor mance,” Miami’s Adrienne Motley said of Doolittle. “She just had a great performance. She played like a Division I basketball player trying to get to the Sweet 16.” Doolittle shot 8-for-16, mostly turnaround jumpers, and grabbed 11 rebounds — none bigger than the one she collected after Iowa’s Samantha Logic missed a free throw with Miami trailing just 69-63. After a couple of passes, Doo little got free on the baseline and buried a jumper, starting a 15-3 run that all but wrapped up the victory for the Hawkeyes (26-7). “She hit a jumper right in our face,” Miami coach Katie Meier said. “That was a four-point swing in a six-point game, a huge turn around. From that point on we just kind of broke.” Meier said her team had to sacrifice something if it wanted to check Iowa’s always dangerous perimeter shooting, and the Hur ricanes did a decent job, limiting long-distance star Melissa Dixon and Logic, the point guard, to one basket each in the first half. But they ended up with no answer for Doolittle. “Doolittle was left on her own. That was a choice we had to make,” Meier said. “In the first half we overhelped and Doolittle was the recipient of that and she cleaned up on the back side. So half her points you can put on me and half we didn’t execute the game plan.” Iowa shot 75 percent in the sec ond half and 53 percent for the game to cap an 18-0 season at home. Jessica Thomas had 20 points for Miami (20-13), which lost six of its last eight games to close the season. Meier had Thomas, a soph omore, stay on the court to watch Iowa’s victory celebration, hoping to motivate her returning players for next season. “It hurt a little bit,” Thomas said. “Somebody had to lose today. Coming back next year, putting in the motivation, just putting more work in and be ready to be a Sweet 16 team as well.” The Hawkeyes had endured seven consecutive second-round exits since last reaching a regional semifinal 19 years ago. That included losses in each of the last two years in Iowa City. This was by far their best shot at the Sweet 16 under 15th-year coach Lisa Bluder, and Iowa made the most of it. The Hurricanes flummoxed the Hawkeyes at times with their athleticism and limited Iowa’s out side looks. But Logic shook off a cold start with a layup just before the half, and Whitney Jennings hit an awkward jumper that put Iowa ahead 38-31. The Hurricanes tried to get back into it behind Motley, who scored their first 12 points in the second half. But Dixon finally got going with a 3 and a layup to give Iowa a 60-50 lead.

(AP) — Dayton is still dancing. The seventh-seeded Fly ers advanced to the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history with a 99-94 upset of No. 2 seed Kentucky on Sunday. Ally Malott scored 28 points and Amber Deane added 23 to keep the school around after bowing out with first-round defeats in their five previous appearances. “It’s funny — you go to the NCAA Tournament six years in a row and you don’t get out of the first weekend (the first five times), and you start doubting yourself a little bit. What am I doing wrong and what can we do better?” Dayton coach Jim Jabir said. “Our team is very, very resilient. They really believed that we could win this game. We worked really hard to put them in a place where mentally that they believed they could. “I really think that was the difference. I really do. They never faltered. In the timeouts, we were down 10. They knew we were gonna win the game.” Kelley Austria made four free throws in the final 21 seconds and added 17 points for Dayton (27-6), which hit 11 3-pointers to help overcome 24 turnovers. Her 3-pointer with 1:09 left broke a 87-87 tie. “Every time we needed a big bucket, someone contrib uted and it wasn’t the same person every time,” Malott said. “We had contributions from everyone — everyone did their job.” The Flyers, who won their seventh straight game, will face the winner of Mon day’s game between Louis ville and South Florida in the Albany Regional semifinals. The Flyers, success in the tourney comes on the heels of the men’s team, who defeated Boise State and Providence this week. “Our campus is always crazy, regardless of what’s going on, so this just really adds to it,” Deane said. “(It’s) definitely exciting. Every one’s having fun (and) the weather’s getting warmer. If the men can pull out a win, and I definitely think they can, it should be great. I think it’s really, really cool for our university right now to represent Dayton.” Dayton upsets Kentucky COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Tiffany Mitchell and Alaina Coates each scored 14 points and No. 1 seed South Carolina built a big first-half lead and cruised to its third Sweet 16 in four years with a 97-68 NCAA Tournament victory over Syracuse on Sunday night. Aleighsa Welch added 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Gamecocks (32-2), who turned an anticipated tight rematch into a runaway by halftime. Welch had 11 points and Asia Dozier hit three of her four 3-point ers in the opening period for the Gamecocks, who used a 21-5 run to take control. Syracuse trailed by 28 at halftime and never got within 20 points. Alexis Peterson had 23 points to lead the Orange (22-10), who gave the Gamecocks one of their tough est games last November before losing 67-63 at the Junkanoo Jam. But in front of 10,485 fans at home, South Carolina had no prob lem moving on. South Carolina had six players score in double figures. Along with Mitchell, Coates and Welch, South eastern Conference freshman of the year A’ja Wilson scored 13, while Dozier and backup point guard Bianca Cuevas had 12 apiece. It was the most points the Orange had allowed since losing 101-64 at Notre Dame last year. Cornelia Fondren had 16 points, although Syracuse’s three-guard lineup of Peterson, Fondren and Brianna Butler was a combined 16 of 49 shooting. Syracuse had stifled South Car olina’s inside game last November, leading by double digits in the sec ond half before falling 67-63. The Orange couldn’t wait for the rematch since the NCAA pairings came out. Syracuse coach Quen tin Hillsman planned on packing the paint once again to thwart the Gamecocks tallest players. He said the Gamecocks had to take and make outside shots to get by his defense — and that’s what Dozier did. South Carolina’s junior hit three 3-pointers in the first five minutes — the Gamecocks had three in Fri day night’s opener against Savan nah State — to build a 14-7 lead and force Syracuse to play perimeter defense. DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Freshman Azura Stevens had 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Duke beat Mississippi State 64-56 on Sunday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Elizabeth Williams scored 12 points in her final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium and Rebecca Green well added 17 with three 3-pointers for fourth-seeded Duke (23-10). The Blue Devils shot 52 per cent, used a timely 26-5 run to build a 15-point lead and held on to earn a spot in the round of 16. They will play the Princeton-Maryland winner on Saturday in the Spokane Region semifinals. Victoria Vivians scored 15 points and Kendra Grant added 12 for the fifth-seeded Bulldogs (27-7). They clawed within 58-52 on Morgan Wil liam’s free throw with 1:21 left. But Dominique Dillingham was called for a blocking foul with 1:02 left, and coach Vic Schaefer received a technical foul for arguing the call. Greenwell then hit 3 of 4 free throws. Mississippi State never got closer than eight in the final minute. Ka’lia Johnson added 10 points for Duke, which had reached the tour nament’s second weekend in four straight years before DePaul came to Cameron last year and knocked the Blue Devils out in the second round. It looked like it might happen again when Martha Alwal put Mississippi State up 37-31 with a banked-in jumper with just under 16 minutes left. That’s when Duke took over. GONZAGA 76, OREGON STATE 64 CORVALLIS, Ore. — Emma Wol fram scored a career-high 17 points and 11th-seeded Gonzaga held off a furious late rally by Oregon State. Gonzaga (26-7) advances to the Sweet Sixteen, heading home to Spo kane to face the winner of today’s game in Knoxville between Tennes see (28-5) and Pittsburgh (20-11). The Bulldogs were also the No. 11 seed in 2011, and also playing in the Spokane Regional, when they made a stunning run to the regional finals before losing to top seed Stanford. Gonzaga also did the same thing as an 11 seed in 2012. The Beavers (27-5) have never made it to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament’s current format. In 1983, the Beavers beat UCLA to advance to the second round when the field was 32 teams. BAYLOR 73, ARKANSAS 44 WACO, Texas — Nina Davis scored 21 points, Niya Johnson had 12 assists to tie Baylor’s career record and the Lady Bears are headed to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the seventh year in a row after a win over Arkansas. The Lady Bears (32-3), the No. 2 seed in the Oklahoma City regional, took control with a 30-7 run to finish the first half — which ended with first-year Arkansas coach Jimmy Dykes getting a technical foul. Kristy Wallace added 13 points, while Alexis Prince had 11 and John son 10. Sune Agbuke, the lone Baylor senior, had 12 rebounds and a careerhigh eight blocks. LATE SATURDAY UC ONN 89, S T . FRANCIS, BROOKLYN 33 STORRS, Conn . — Morgan Tuck had 26 points and eight assists as No. 1 UConn began its drive toward a 10th national title and third in a row with an rout of St. Francis, Brooklyn. Tuck, who outscored the Terriers 20-14 by herself in the first half, made 12 of her 13 shots from the floor for the Huskies (33-1), who won their 32nd consecutive game. Breanna Stewart hit eight of her 10 shots, and finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

STAT SHEET Page C4 | The News Herald | Monday, March 23, 2015 Halep beats Jankovic for Indian Wells title INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Simona Halep beat Jelena Jankovic 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 to win the BNP Paribas Open on Sunday, giving the Romanian the biggest title of her career and a WTA Tour-leading third tournament victory of the year. Halep improved to 6-0 in three-set matches this year, smacking a crosscourt forehand winner off Jankovic’s weak volley return on match point. The world’s thirdranked player advanced to the final after Serena Williams withdrew before their semifinal because of a sprained right knee. Jankovic won her biggest career title at Indian Wells in 2010. This time, she committed 61 unforced errors and had nine double-faults, smiling wryly after her last one gave Halep match point. The 2 -hour match featured 18 service breaks. Djokovic beats Federer in 3 sets to win in men’s finale INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Move over Roger Federer, there is another guy with a share of your crown as king of the desert. Novak Djokovic defeated Federer 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-2 to win his fourth BNP Paribas Open on Sunday, tying him with Federer for the most titles in the desert after winning for the second straight year. “I am at the prime of my career,” Djokovic said. “I’m going to try to use every part of this fact to stay where I am and to fight for as many major titles as possible.” Djokovic, ranked No. 1 in the world, and No. 2 Federer met for the 38th time, second-most among rivalries in the Open era. Federer leads the series 20-18 and had won three of their last four meetings going into the final. But Federer made too many mistakes at crucial times, piling up 43 unforced errors to 35 for Djokovic. The Serb connected on 63 percent of his first serves, while Federer’s serve let him down. He double-faulted to trail 4-2 in the third as Djokovic won the last four games of the match. “I felt huge relief, to be honest,” Djokovic said. “I saw I’m not the only one that is double-faulting under pressure. I got myself in a position to break and then he handed me that break. I thought I deserved it in a way because I really fought hard for it.” Federer’s serve had carried him earlier in the tournament, when he faced just three break points in his first five matches and he saved two of those. “I was trying to really focus a lot on my serve because it was very important because he returns so well off the second serve,” Federer said. “He really plays everybody really tough when he returns off the second serve, and I think that’s what also was tough today against him.” Minnesota stifles Harvard for 3rd title in 4 years MINNEAPOLIS — Megan Wolfe scored early and Amanda Leveille made 19 saves, leading Minnesota to a 4-1 victory over Harvard on Sunday for the third women’s hockey championship in four seasons for the Gophers. Hannah Brandt, Megan Lorence and Rachel Bona had goals in the third period for Minnesota (34-3-4), which returned the trophy to the west after a one-year slip. Lightning beat Bruins 5-3, end 10-game skid TAMPA — J.T. Brown and Anton Stralman scored 15 seconds apart soon after Tampa Bay captain Steven Stamkos got into a fight, and the Lightning stopped a 10-game losing streak against the Boston Bruins with a 5-3 victory Sunday. Tampa Bay also got goals from Vladislav Namestnikov, Jason Garrison and Ondrej Palat. The Lightning’s last win over Boston was on Mar. 13, 2012, a 6-1 victory. Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and Daniel Paille scored for the Bruins, who are 0-3-2 over their last five games and hold a one-point lead over Ottawa for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

SPORT S Monday, March 23, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — Brian Vickers will be sidelined for at least three months while the NAS CAR driver is taking blood thin ners to treat clots in his lungs. Before Brett Moffitt drove his No. 55 Toyota in Sunday’s race at Fontana, Vickers said he still hopes to resume his racing career after his latest medical setback. “By no means have I given up,” Vickers said. “I don’t know what’s next. I know I’m going to be on blood thinners for the next three months, and after that, I’m going to do everything I can to get back in a race car.” Two days after blood clots were discovered in both of his lungs when Vickers alertly responded to pain by getting to a hospital, Vickers came to Auto Club Speedway to support his Michael Waltrip Racing team. Vickers is in only minimal pain, but can’t drive while tak ing blood thinners because his bleeding could be impossible to stop in a serious crash. He remains hopeful for good news during the summer, but Vickers also understands the reality of a racing team’s needs early in a NASCAR season. “I’ll just try to figure out what makes sense with my doctors — if I can come back off of them and go racing, if there is some kind of plan that works,” Vickers said. “If not, then that’s that. ... Am I worried? Of course. Have I given up hope? No.” The 31-year-old Vickers has endured three bouts of blood clots and open-heart surgery in the past five years, returning to racing each time. He missed 26 races during the 2010 sea son after getting painful clots in his lungs and legs, followed by surgery to fix a hole in his heart. Vickers then missed the final five races in 2013 while on blood thinners to treat a clot in his right leg. Last December, the threetime race winner had surgery on his heart again after his body began to reject the patch. He missed the first two races of this season while his sternum healed from surgery. He went to a hospital Friday after feeling pain in his chest following a cross-country flight — but only after pacing around his hotel room and trying to per suade himself that it hadn’t hap pened again. “I was still trying to convince myself it was something else,” Vickers said. “I did mostly listen to my own advice, which is, ‘Go to the doctor when you think some thing is wrong.’” Vickers noted a grim seren dipity in his latest setback: He is now taking the blood-thinning medication that is one of his major sponsors. Just two days earlier, Vickers appeared with Arnold Palmer and actor Kevin Nealon at a golf tournament in Florida to pro mote blood clot awareness. The trio unveiled a new series of tele vision commercials made by a pharmaceutical company. Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Fontana was even called the Drive4Clots.com 300. Vickers is in the final season of his contract with MWR, and he has been grateful for their unwavering support during his medical problems. Michael Wal trip has said the team hasn’t made a decision about its longterm future beyond Moffitt’s turn in the No. 55 car on Sunday. “They have a team to run, and I’m probably starting to wear out their patience,” Vickers said. “But I know that if at all possible, they’re going to stick behind me and they’ve proven that.” NASCAR’s Vickers out 3 months, but hopes to return BRIAN VICKERS AP Kurt Busch, front, pits with others during the first caution. CHICAGO (AP) — Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley highlight the U.S. team chosen by Jur gen Klinsmann on Sunday for exhibi tion matches against Denmark and Switzerland. Seattle’s Dempsey and the two Toronto stars are among six Major League Soccer players selected for the 23-man side. Goalkeeper Nick Rimando of Real Salt Lake joins defender Brek Shea of expansion Orlando City SC, midfielder Gyasi Zardes of the Los Angeles Galaxy. The rest of the roster is comprised mostly of players in Europe, such as Tottenham Hotspur’s DeAndre Yed lin, Hamburg’s Julian Green and AZ Alkmaar’s Aron Johannsson. The United States is set to face Denmark in Aarhus on March 25, and Switzerland in Zurich on March 31. The U.S. Under-23 and Under-20 teams were also announced by U.S. Soccer on Sunday. The U-23 team is preparing for Olympic qualifying ahead of the 2016 Rio Games, and the U-20 World Cup starts in May in New Zealand. “From a senior team perspective, it’s exciting to put players in differ ent areas and get a better picture of where they are right now,” Klinsmann said. “As we juggle the rosters for the different groups, we maybe even have players go between teams at a certain point.” Green, Yedlin, Brooks, and Rubio all are eligible to do so. AP Michigan State’s Travis Trice dunks against Virginia. AP Zach Johnson lines up a putt on the 17th green during the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. “We’re just not as talented as we’ve been so we are always cheat ing to find a way to get an edge,” Izzo said. “Coaches can tell you what to do, but when muscle mem ory tells you to do it another way ... your focus has to be incredible. And that was incredible focus if you asked me.” Last year, the Spartans upset the top-seeded Cavaliers in the regional semifinal by holding Vir ginia to 35.1 percent shooting. While Trice was beating them up and down the court and making 3s, the Cavaliers opened the game 2 of 10 from the field and could never get on track offensively. “They are so good defensively that any start like that is costly,” Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett said. The Cavaliers finished the first half shooting just 26.7 percent (8 of 30) from the field. Virginia cut the lead to two to start the second half behind two quick baskets by Justin Anderson. But the Spartans countered with a 12-2 run led by Dawson, who had seven points during the stretch, including a three-point play off a fastbreak dunk. Down six points, Atkins picked up his fourth foul with 8:36 left on what replays showed to be a clean block on Gavin Schilling and was forced to go to the bench, which served to be a momentum swing. Virginia would battle back to within five after Atkins returned to the game, but Trice knocked down a clutch 28-footer with 1 second left on the shot clock to put the Spartans up 52-44 with 3 minutes to play. “That was a dagger 3,” Bennett said. “It was an NBA 3. ... When you have a guy like Trice making those shots down the stretch that is what makes you advance in this tournament.” SP AR T ANS from Page C1 hit his tee shot out-of-bounds into a backyard on the 18th hole for a double bogey and a 71 to finish fourth. Rory McIlroy, in his final tourna ment before he goes for his third straight major and the career Grand Slam at the Masters, closed with a 70 and tied for 11th. The world’s No. 1 player had only one round in the 60s in his three events on the Florida swing. “The main goal was to come here and try to win,” said McIlroy, who played Bay Hill for the first time. “Couldn’t do that. At least I got a couple of things out of this week, which is good.” Zach Johnson holed a 5-iron from 207 yards on the par-5 16th for the second albatross in two days, after no one had made a 2 on a par 5 since Bay Hill began in 1979. Every left Bay Hill a year ago believing he could win the Masters on his first try. He missed the cut and had only one top 10 the rest of the year. But he changed coaches in the fall and began working with Sean Foley to tighten up areas in his game. Now he heads to Augusta with more confidence, and believes he has a swing that will get him in these positions more often. Marco Dawson wins Tucson Conquistadores Classic TUCSON, Ariz. — Marco Dawson won the Tucson Conquistadores Clas sic on Sunday for his first Champi ons Tour’s title, breaking a tie with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-4 16th hole and closing with two pars for a two-stroke victory.

ANNOUNCEMENT S “We just got hung out on the yellows at the end,” Busch said. “That last restart, I just didn’t get the job done. Brad outmuscled us on four tires.” Busch and Harvick dueled down the stretch in front of a sellout crowd, two teammates eager to capital ize on their superior Stew art-Haas Racing Chevrolets. They might have cruised to a 1-2 finish if not for another chapter in the thrilling races that have recently charac terized the well-aged asphalt at Fontana. “I hate that (Busch) wasn’t able to hold on for the win there,” Harvick said. “I would have loved to see those guys get their first win.” Busch was holding off Harvick until a caution for debris with five laps to go, forcing a green-whitecheckered finish. Busch and Harvick took tires and went right up the middle on the restart and got in front of three drivers who didn’t make pit stops. Busch reclaimed the lead, but Kyle Larson then clipped the wall and sent his entire back bumper flying airborne, forcing another caution. On the 202nd lap, Kesel owski slid down the low side and seized the lead from Busch. Although Greg Biffle crashed behind them, NAS CAR let the field keep rac ing, and Keselowski finished strong.

SPORT S Page C6 | The News Herald | Monday, March 23, 2015 Michael Sam among ‘vets’ eyes elusive NFL job TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The strain and sweat on their faces showed just how much one more chance in the NFL means to Michael Sam and 104 others. Except for pro days for college players entering the draft, March isn’t usually a time for running sprints and drills before scouts. Then again, these “veter ans” will take any opportu nity to prove their worth. “Whoever wants me,” Michael Sam said Sunday when asked about return ing to the field for the ini tial NFL veterans combine. The first openly gay player drafted didn’t make it with the Rams last year, cut at the end of training camp. He landed on the Cowboys’ practice squad for a few weeks, then was released. “If the Rams or Cowboys want me, I’m on the first flight out,” he said. Unlike many of the others on hand, including a variety of former first-round draft picks such as Brady Quinn, Felix Jones, Jamaal Ander son and Adam Carriker, Sam really has a blank NFL resume. But he’s certain he’ll get a shot at a roster spot — and not the “Dancing With The Stars” variety. “Absolutely, I think my chances are high,” the 25-yearold defensive end said. “As long as I have that will to play the game and I am healthy, you’ll continue to see me try ing to play in this league. I am very confident I will be playing football somewhere.” Sam didn’t rule out Can ada, either: “If that’s the opportunity, I’ll take it. I’m a fighter and I’m going to keep fighting.” Sam’s disclosure that he is gay brought a wave of atten tion to the NFL from those outside sports. The Rams were applauded for selecting him, albeit eight spots from the end of the proceedings. That he didn’t make the roster, the team said, was purely a football decision, and Sam was trying to break in on one of the league’s top pass-rushing units. Dallas signed him for the practice squad days later, but released him in October. Sam has been out of football since. What he wants is another look. “’’I’m young and I’m still good,” Sam said. “I don’t have any injuries. I’m going to play.” Harrison returns to Steelers PITTSBURGH — So much for retirement. Again. Five-time Pro Bowl linebacker James Harrison is returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 36-yearold Harrison signed a two-year deal with the team on Sunday following a productive 2014 in which he had 5 sacks after being lured out of a brief 18-day retirement. Harrison tweeted “I’m back” while posting a picture of him sign ing the deal to Twitter. The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year began a training program when the offseason began and was weighing another run in Pittsburgh or joining former Steel ers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau in Tennessee. The signing gives the Steelers needed depth at outside linebacker after Jason Worilds abruptly retired at 27 two weeks ago rather than try and land a massive payday. Harrison joins Jarvis Jones as the only players with more than nominal NFL experience at the position on the roster, though the team figures to grab at least one more edge pass rusher in the draft. AP LeBron James, left, celebrates with teammate J.R. Smith after hitting a shot in Sunday’s game. Detroit’s Martinez hitless; Braves win KISSIMMEE (AP) — Victor Martinez returned to the Tigers’ lineup Sunday but was hitless in the Detroit split squad’s 5-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves. The slugger, who underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee in February, went 0-3 with a strikeout in his Grapefruit League debut. “It feels great to get the first one out of the way,” Martinez said. Martinez said the injury caused him to flash back to 2012, when a torn ACL in the same knee forced him to miss the entire season. Braves starter Shelby Miller pitched five innings and allowed one run on four hits. Atlanta’s Pedro Ciriaco went had two hits, including a two-run double. BL UE J A Y S 3, R A Y S 0 DUNEDIN — Russell Martin homered for the first time this spring, Roberto Osuna tossed 3 2/3 scoreless innings and the Toronto Blue Jays blanked the Tampa Bay Rays in a game that took just 2 hours, 2 minutes. Martin’s sixth-inning drive off reliever Mike Montgomery landed far beyond the right-cen ter field wall. The three-time All-Star signed a five-year, $82 million deal with the Blue Jays last November after a two-year stint with Pittsburgh. Osuna, a surprise contender for a spot in Toronto’s rotation, allowed a double to Desmond Jennings to lead off the first and a single to Joey Butler in the second. The right-hander struck out two and walked one. Jose Bautista drove in Jose Reyes on a grounder in the first. TWINS 5, MARLINS 3 JUPITER — Danny Santana had four hits as the leadoff hitter, Phil Hughes struck out four and the Minnesota Twins beat the Miami Marlins. Giancarlo Stanton had a long double and Michael Morse a two-run single for Miami. Dee Gordon went 3 for 3 with a run and a stolen base for the Marlins. Hughes pitched 4 2/3 innings in his second strong start. Marlins starter Jarred Cosart gave up four unearned runs and six hits over four innings. C ARDINALS 8, ORIOLES 6 SARASOTA — John Lackey worked into the fifth inning in his second spring start, allowing four runs as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Baltimore Orioles. Adam Jones homered twice for Baltimore, driving in four runs and Manny Machado hit a solo home run. Jones hit a three-run homer in the fifth off Mitch Wilson. He also homered in the fourth off Lackey. The center fielder has three home runs this spring. Machado homered and doubled against Lackey. Bud Norris allowed three runs — one of them unearned in four innings. Matt Adams hit a long two-run home run to center field in the third. A STROS 14, PIRATES 2 KISSIMMEE — Chris Carter hit his second homer of the spring and started an eight-run fifth inning with a double as the Houston Astros roughed up Charlie Morton in a victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Carter went 3 for 3 and drove in two runs for Houston. Colby Rasmus also hit his second home run and scored three times. Jonathan Villar and Hank Conger drove in three runs each for the Astros. Right-hander Roberto Hernandez, bidding for a spot in the Astros’ starting rotation, gave up one run on three hits in four innings. Jordy Mercer homered for the Pirates, his second of the spring. RED S O X 7, PHILLIES 6 FORT M Y ERS — Boston left fielder Hanley Ramirez blasted a three-run homer as part of a five-RBI afternoon in a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Ramirez collected more RBI than in his first 10 spring training games combined. He entered the game hitting .208. Red Sox centerfielder Mookie Betts contin ued his hot spring with a double and inside-thepark homer, upping his average to .471. The inside-the-park home run came in the third inning, when Betts sent a drive to deep center over the head of Philadelphia center fielder Odubel Herrera, who bobbled the carom off the wall. METS 6, YANKEES 0 PORT ST. L UCIE — Yankees center fielder Jose Pirela was carted off the field after crashing into the wall on Juan Lagares’ inside-the-park home run, the first of three long balls off CC Sabathia, and the New York Mets beat their crosstown rivals behind a dominant effort from Matt Harvey. David Wright and Lcas Duda also connected off Sabathia, in his second start after having major knee surgery last year. Harvey allowed two hits over 5 2/3 innings in his fourth spring start after having Tommy John surgery. James ignites Cavs MI LW AUKEE (AP) — LeBron James scored 28 points and sparked a key second-half run with an emphatic dunk, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 108-90 victory over the Mil waukee Bucks on Sunday. J.R. Smith added 23 points for Cleveland, which has won three in a row. Smith made three straight 3s to close out the Cavs’ decisive run that turned a six-point deficit into a 93-78 lead with 6:19 left in the game. Milwaukee has dropped six in a row. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks. The lanky forward muscled his way to the bucket against James early in the game to help Milwaukee build an 11-point lead. James had his way late. His dunk off an offensive rebound got the Cavs going. He finished 10 of 17 from the field and grabbed 10 boards. Smith’s long-range shoot ing finished off Milwaukee. After hitting the last of his three straight 3s in front of the Milwaukee bench, Smith shook his head from side to side as he jogged back up the court. Smith finished 8 of 11 from the field, including 7 of 9 from 3-point range. Both teams got off to hot starts before slogging through a sloppy stretch of turnovers in the second quarter. Antetokounmpo, a sec ond-year player, looked fear less at times against James. The 6-foot-11 forward had 11 points and six rebounds in the first half to help Milwau kee carry a nine-point lead into the break. SPURS 114, HA WKS 95 AT L ANTA — Tiago Splitter scored a season-high 23 points, Kawhi Leonard added 20 points and the San Antonio Spurs won their third straight game with an easy victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Paul Millsap finished with 22 points and Dennis Schroder had 18 points for Eastern Conferenceleading Atlanta, which dropped its third in a row. Boris Diaw scored 15 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter, and Danny Green added 15 for San Antonio, which never trailed and took its biggest lead at 26 early in the third. The Spurs, playing their fourth straight game with key reserve Manu Ginobili nursing a sprained right ankle, contested nearly every Hawks shot and pass, but no Atlanta player looked more flustered than 12th-year guard Kyle Korver. Wearing protective gear on his face to cover up a broken nose, Korver returned after a threegame absence and committed five turnovers to match a season high. His errant pass to begin the third resulted in a steal and layup by Tim Duncan that made it 61-41. Duncan finished with 12 points. Marco Belinelli scored all 13 of his points in the second and hit all three of his 3-point attempts. San Antonio improved to 10-2 since snapping a four-game losing streak on March 4. THUNDER 93, HEAT 75 OK L AHOMA CIT Y — Rus sell Westbrook had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 17 assists for his 10th triple-double of the season, lead ing the Oklahoma City Thunder to a victory over the Miami Heat. Enes Kanter had 27 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma City, which has won three in a row. Rookie Mitch McGary scored 14 points, and Anthony Morrow had 12. Kanter was expected to miss his second straight game with an ankle injury. But he was cleared to play after morning shootaround, and then got off to a fast start with 15 points in the first quarter. Westbrook committed six turnovers, but also had four steals and blocked two shots. The 17 assists matched a career high for the dynamic guard, one of the leading contenders for the NBA MVP award. The Heat had five players score in double figures. Hassan Whiteside had 13 points, all in the first half, and Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers each scored 12. Miami had won three in a row. R APTORS 106, KNICKS 89 TORONTO — DeMar DeRo zan scored 23 points, Tyler Hans brough added a season-high 18 and the Toronto Raptors won for the third time in four games, beat ing the New York Knicks. Jonas Valanciunas had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Lou Williams scored 13 and Greivis Vasquez had 12. Lance Thomas scored 24 points and former Raptor Andrea Bargnani had 16 for the Knicks, who dropped their third straight and lost for the 10th time in 12 games. Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry, who dressed but did not play in Fri day’s loss at Chicago, was inactive because of a sore back suffered in a fall against Minnesota last Wednes day. Vasquez made his second straight start in Lowry’s place. CL IPPERS 107, P E L ICANS 100 L OS ANGE L ES — Blake Griffin scored 23 points, Chris Paul had 23 points and 11 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers put a crimp in the New Orleans Pelicans’ playoff hopes with a victory.
