But for some of them, it has been an exercise in confusion and frustration.Others, meanwhile, are hesitant to apply, knowing they will have to pay back the unem-ployment benefits when they finally return to work.The U.S. Labor Department on Thursday reported that the number of furloughed federal employees seeking unemployment benefits has jumped, from fewer than a thou-sand per week before the shutdown to more than 10,000 during the week that ended Jan. 5.Need a handFederal workers hurt by shutdown apply for unemploymentBy Genevieve Smith@PCNHGenevieve firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ On Thursday morning, represen-tatives from the school district traversed the county to surprise the five finalists for Bay District SchoolsÂ Teacher of the Year competition.Superintendent Bill Hus-felt, Assistant Superintendent Denise Kelley and Director of Communications Sharon Michalik led a convoy of vehi-cles on a giant loop around the county, visiting teachers from Cherry Street Elementary in the Cove to West Bay Elementary by the new airport, with a smat-tering of schools in between.Susan Brooks, who teaches art at Cherry Street Elementary, was the first teacher surprised by the fleet.ÂIÂm in shock,ÂŽ she said as Husfelt gave her a hug.Brooks already has had quite a school year.

** The News Herald | Friday, January 18, 2019 A3The nearly 4-week-old stalemate over President Donald TrumpÂs demand for funding for a border wall affects about 800,000 employees. When it started, roughly 420,000 were told to work without being paid, and 380,000 others were sent home with no pay. Some of those numbers have shifted in the past week as agencies such as the IRS have called tens of thousands back to work.Trump signed legislation Wednesday to guarantee employees will be given back pay once the shutdown ends. But that also means those who obtain unemploy-ment benefits to get by in the meantime will have to repay the money.The Labor Department has said that federal employees who arenÂt working during the shutdown can collect unemployment, while those who are on the job without pay cannot.But the rules are being applied unevenly. California, for example, is encouraging everyone affected by the shutdown to apply for unemploy-ment, even those still on the job.The rules made no sense to Charisma Banks, whose husband is deployed on a ship with the Coast Guard. The Chesapeake, Virginia, mother of a 9-yearold boy called the state unemployment office to ask whether her husband could qualify for benefits. She was told no.ÂTheyÂre like, ÂHereÂs where it gets sticky: Even though heÂs not getting a paycheck, heÂs still employed,ÂÂŽ she said.Banks, 34, has signed her son up for free lunch at school and applied for a grant from the Ameri-can Legion. ÂI donÂt even know how to go to food banks, but I had to learn this week,ÂŽ she said.Panama City, then lease it as the new federal courthouse. However, the juvenile courthouse was heavily damaged by the hurricane, prompt-ing the county to apply for an extension with the U.S. General Ser-vices Administration.ÂThe shutdown is delaying that process Âƒ the GSA workers arenÂt working because of the shutdown,ÂŽ Majka said.The shutdown has been underway for weeks as Democrats battle with President Donald Trump over budgeting $5 billion to help build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.Majka said the county was working in good faith on the project with the expectation that GSA would approve the lease agreement extension for the building.Originally set to open in October, the project needed an initial extension after the building sustained heavy hurricane damage, most notably the roof. Majka said crews made tempo-rary repairs to the roof soon after the storm, but more extensive, perma-nent repairs are needed.ÂThe contract will be awarded at the next county commission meeting for the permanent repairs,ÂŽ Majka said.Much of the county money spent on the proj-ect will be reimbursed through the lease agree-ment with the federal government, Majka said. Still, the extension likely will help the county save money on the project, he said.ÂThereÂs a lot of demand for contractors and supplies right now because of the hur-ricane,ÂŽ Majka said, referring to high costs for construction materi-als. ÂThe further we get away from the date of landfall, pricing becomes more favorable Âƒ we will not be paying top dollar.ÂŽMeanwhile, plans still are underway to build a new juvenile courthouse on the county court-house campus.Majka said the Bay County Courts and Clerk Facilities Committee still was hashing out the conceptual engi-neering plans for the new juvenile courthouse. He noted that the delay on the federal courthouse will work in the juvenile courthouse projectÂs favor.Previously, the plan was to house juvenile court in the old Panama City City Hall for more than a year while the new building was constructed.ÂNow because of the extension with the federal courthouse, that displacement time frame will be greatly abbreviated,ÂŽ Majka said. ÂBy the time the federal courthouse is done, the juvenile courthouse will be pretty close to being built.ÂŽ PROJECTFrom Page A1Superintendent Bill Husfelt and West Bay Elementary Principal Deniece Moss, right, stand with Â“ fth-grade math and science teacher Ashley Champagne as she reacts to Â“ nding out that she is a Teacher of the Year Â“ nalist.

Who could top that?ÂŽ Husfelt said with a laugh. ÂThatÂs never been said before.ÂŽPeltonen said having the opportunity to rep-resent teachers who have worked harder this year than they ever have in their lives was an honor.West BayÂs Ashley Champagne, who teaches fifth-grade math and sci-ence, was the districtÂs third stop. Champagne, who has gained a repu-tation for hosting lessons with different themes to increase classroom engagement, was dressed in a chef uniform when the group interrupted her ÂTop ChefÂŽ lesson on subtraction, fractions and mixed numbers.ÂOh my goodness, what an honor,ÂŽ she said. ÂThere are a lot of really amazing teachers in Bay County.ÂŽChampagne said she was proud to represent West Bay and honored and thankful that her peers helped her get to this next step.Hutchison Beach Elementary fifth-grade teacher Erica Marino was the next teacher to be surprised.Although Marino said she didnÂt expect to get in the top five, upon seeing the group enter her class-room midmorning, she knew what was going on.ÂItÂs exciting. I was nervous,ÂŽ she said. ÂThere were a lot of people who came in the room.ÂŽThe final teacher to be visited by the dis-trict was Kelley Hodges, who teaches science at SweetBayÂs University Academy.ÂI am overwhelmed and very excited. I donÂt know how to process everything that just happened,ÂŽ said Hodges.Hodges said she was Âdeeply honoredÂŽ to represent University Academy.Each finalist received a box of chocolate treats, a bouquet of flowers and a $25 Visa gift card.While many events scheduled before Hurri-cane Michael have faded into the background, theTeacher of the Year competition has become all the more important to the district.Albeit on a very condensed time frame, the district has worked hard to continue the program.According to Michalik, as soon as email became accessible following the hurricane, she was communicating with the directors of the state competition for an extension.ÂWe abbreviated what we asked the teachers to submit to us knowing that many are challenged just to make it through the day,ÂŽ she said. Â(The state) was gracious to allow us to extend just as far as we could.ÂŽThe finalist for Teacher of the Year will be announced at the Teacher of the Year and Support Employee of the Year Awards Ceremony on Feb. 23, which will be held in the Gretchen Nelson Scott Fine Arts Center at Mosley High School.

According to a criminal complaint, Patterson told investigators that he broke into the house in the middle of the night, gunned down JaymeÂs parents and made off with the teen, hiding her in a remote cabin for nearly three months. Jayme escaped Jan. 10, and deputies arrested Patterson minutes later.BIRMINGHAM, ALA.Testimony: Man shot by Ala. police held gun over victimA man killed by police who mistook him for a suspect in an Alabama shopping mall on Thanksgiving night was stand-ing over a shooting victim with a gun drawn moments before he was fatally wounded, testimony showed Thursday.Details of the video surrounding the police shooting of Emantic ÂEJÂŽ Bradford Jr., 21, came out during a hearing for Erron Brown, 20, who is charged with attempted murder in the gunfire that preceded the killing.

On his previous visits he held talks with the Taliban in their Middle East-ern headquarters in Qatar, but a Taliban official said Khalilzad canceled meetings originally scheduled for Jan. 9-10 with its leadership. No explanation was given, he said on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.CAIROThousands protest against al-BashirÂs rule across SudanThousands of demonstrators took to the streets Thursday in cities across Sudan, including the capital, where activists said two people were killed in clashes between police and protesters attempting to reach the presidential palace to demand longtime ruler Omar al-Bashir step down. The protests, called for by professional and opposition groups, are part of a wave of unrest over a failing economy that has transformed into demands for the resignation of the autocratic al-Bashir, an Islamist who has run the country for nearly 30 years but brought little improvement to his people. The protests first erupted on Dec. 19.BEIJINGChina hits back at criticism of its detention of CanadiansChina on Thursday rejected an accusation by CanadaÂs foreign minister that its detentions of Canadians pose a threat to all countries.ÂI think your foreign minister may be in a hurry, and canÂt help speaking without thinking,ÂŽ foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in response to a question from a Canadian journalist on what threat China poses to Canada.

[AP]investigators believe previous reports might have underestimated the scope of migrant family separationsBy Colleen Long and Ricardo Alonso-ZaldivarThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Thousands more migrant children may have been split from their families than the Trump administration previously reported, in part because offi-cials were stepping up family separations long before the border policy that prompted international outrage last spring, a government watch-dog said Thursday.ItÂs unclear just how many family separations occurred at the U.S.-Mexico border; immi-gration officials are allowed under longstanding policy to separate families under cer-tain circumstances. Health and Human Services, the agency tasked with caring for migrant children, did not adequately track them until after a judge ruled that children must be reunited with their families, according to the report by the agencyÂs inspector general.Ann Maxwell, assistant inspector general for evaluations, said the number of children removed from their parents was certainly larger than the 2,737 listed by the government in court documents. Those documents chronicled separations that took place as parents were criminally prosecuted for illegally entering the country under President Donald TrumpÂs Âzero toleranceÂŽ policy.ÂItÂs certainly more,ÂŽ Max-well said. ÂBut precisely how much more is unknown.ÂŽMaxwell said investigators didnÂt have specific numbers, but that Health and Human Services staff had estimated the tally to be in the thousands.Lee Gelernt, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney who sued on behalf of a mother separated from her son, said the separation policy Âwas a cruel disaster from the start. This report reaffirms that the government never had a clear picture of how many children it ripped from their parents.ÂŽMost of the tens of thousands of children who come into government custody cross the border alone. But the report found that in late 2016, 0.3 percent of children turned over to Health and Human Ser-vices had crossed with a parent and were separated. By the summer of 2017, that percent-age had grown to 3.6 percent, officials said. The watchdog did not give exact numbers, but the total number of migrant children who passed through the agencyÂs care during the 2017 budget year was 40,810. The separated children had already been released to sponsors, who are generally parents or other close relatives.The inspector general did not say why the children had been separated before the zero-tolerance policy. Immigration officials are allowed to take a child from a parent in certain cases Â„ serious crimi-nal charges against a parent, concerns over the health and welfare of a child or medical concerns. That policy has long been in place.Katie Waldman, a spokes-woman for Homeland Security, said the report reinforced what officials have long said. ÂFor more than a decade it was and continues to be standard for apprehended minors to be separated when the adult is not the parent or legal guard-ian, the childÂs safety is at riskÂŽ or thereÂs a record of a Âserious criminal activity by the adult,ÂŽ she said.In some cases, however, Homeland Security officials said a parent had a criminal history but did not offer details on the crimes, the watchdog reported.The number of families coming across the border has grown even as overall illegal border crossings have decreased dramatically compared with historic trends. Over the past three months, families made up the majority of Border Patrol arrests.The Administration for Chil-dren and Families, the division under Health and Human Ser-vices that manages the care of unaccompanied minors, said it generally agreed with the findings and noted the report did not find that the agency lost track of children under its care. It also noted new poli-cies were in place to help track newly separated children. And the court never instructed offi-cials to determine the number of children separated before the June 26 ruling.Last spring, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said anyone caught crossing the border illegally would be crimi-nally prosecuted. Families were brought into custody by U.S. Border patrol officials, then their parents taken to criminal court. If the parents were gone longer than 72 hours Â„ the length of time Border Patrol is allowed to hold children Â„ the children were transferred to the custody of Health and Human Services.The practice prompted an outcry, with church groups and lawmakers calling the separations inhumane. Trump ordered an end to the separa-tions on June 20. At the time, a federal judge who was already hearing the case of a mother separated from her son ruled that children must be reunited with their parents. Since the court order, 118 children have been separated.Many more children likely separatedIn this Dec. 13 photo, teen migrants walk in line inside the Tornillo detention camp in Tornillo, Texas.

** The News Herald | Friday, January 18, 2019 A5By Deb Riechmann and Lolita C. BaldorThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Declaring that space is the new warfighting domain, President Donald Trump on Thursday vowed the U.S. will develop an unrivaled missile defense system to protect against advanced hypersonic and cruise missile threats from competitors and adversaries.Trump said in a Pentagon speech that the U.S. will do what it takes Âto ensure that we can detect and destroy any missile launched against the United States anywhere, any time, any place.ÂŽTrump did not mention Russia, China or North Korea in his roughly 20-minute speech. But the PentagonÂs new strat-egy makes clear that its plan for a more aggressive space-based missile defense system is aimed at protecting against existing threats from North Korea and Iran and countering advanced weapon systems being developed by Russia and China.The new review is the first since 2010, and it con-cludes that to adequately protect America, the Pen-tagon must expand defense technologies in space and use those systems to more quickly detect, track and ultimately defeat incom-ing missiles.Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan, who also spoke, said competitors such as Russia and China are aggressively pursuing new missiles that are harder to see, harder to track and harder to defeat.Specifically, the U.S. is looking at putting a layer of sensors in space to more quickly detect enemy missiles when they are launched, according to a senior administration official, who briefed reporters Wednesday. The U.S. sees space as a critical area for advanced, nextgeneration capabilities to stay ahead of the threats, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose details of the review before it was released.The administration also plans to study the idea of basing interceptors in space, so the U.S. can strike incoming enemy missiles during the first minutes of flight when the booster engines are still burning.Recognizing the potential concerns surrounding any perceived weaponiza-tion of space, the strategy pushes for studies. No testing is mandated, and no final decisions have been made.Congress, which ordered this review, already has directed the Pentagon to push harder on this Âboost-phaseÂŽ approach, but officials want to study the feasibility of the idea and explore ways it could be done.The new strategy is aimed at better defending the U.S. against potential adversaries, such as Russia and China, who have been developing and fielding a much more expansive range of advanced offensive missiles that could threaten America and its allies. The threat is not only coming from traditional cruise and ballistic missiles, but also from hypersonic weapons.For example, Russian President Vladimir Putin unveiled new strategic weapons he claims canÂt be intercepted.

** The News Herald | Friday, January 18, 2019 A7 BUSINESS By Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ U.S. stocks climbed Thurs-day after the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. officials could reduce the new tariffs on Chinese imports as part of trade negotiations between the two countries. It was the latest in a series of poten-tially conflicting updates on the trade dispute.Citing sources close to the discussions, the Journal said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and other offi-cials are willing to lift some or all of the import taxes the U.S. announced last year. TheyÂre aiming to convince Chinese leaders to make deeper reforms. However, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer report-edly doesnÂt support the idea, and the proposals havenÂt been presented to President Donald Trump.Stocks wobbled earlier following reports late Wednesday that the U.S. might bring criminal charges against Chinese technology giant Huawei over allegations it stole trade secrets. However, ChinaÂs government said the top trade envoys from both countries will meet in Washington at the end of this month, a possible sign of progress in negotiations.Technology, industrial and health care companies made some of the largest gains, and makers of chemicals and other basic materials jumped.After three months of big swings that were linked to trade talk devel-opments, investors have adjusted to the uncertainty, said Gina Martin Adams, the chief equity strategist for Bloomberg Intelligence. She said investors want hard data and clear answers about what international trade will look like. ÂThese issues between Huawei and trade have been a constant source of volatility and uncertainty that is weighing on sentiment,ÂŽ she said. ÂAny permanence on the issue is going to be deemed an improvement.ÂŽThe S&P 500 index rose 19.86 points, or 0.8 percent, to 2,635.96.

The Associated PressIn this Jan. 10 photo, Will Kohler, an IRS tax examiner, holds a protest sign as union members and other federal employees rally to call for an end to the partial government shutdown outside the IRS site in Covington, Ky. [JOHN MINCHILLO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Michelle SmithThe Associated PressPROVIDENCE, R.I. Â„ Thousands of federal employees and their families are applying for unemployment and food stamps to get by as the longest government shutdown in U.S. history drags on with no end in sight. But for some of them, it has been an exercise in confusion and frustration.Others, meanwhile, are hesitant to apply, knowing they will have to pay back the unemployment benefits when they finally return to work.The U.S. Labor Department on Thursday reported that the number of furloughed federal employees seeking unemployment benefits has jumped, from fewer than a thousand per week before the shutdown to more than 10,000 during the week that ended Jan. 5.The nearly 4-week-old stalemate over President Donald TrumpÂs demand for funding for a border wall affects about 800,000 employees. When it started, roughly 420,000 were told to work without being paid, and 380,000 others were sent home with no pay. Some of those numbers have shifted in the past week as agencies such as the IRS have called tens of thousands back to work.Trump signed legislation Wednesday to guarantee employees will be given back pay once the shutdown ends. But that also means those who obtain unemployment bene-fits to get by in the meantime will have to repay the money.The Labor Department has said that federal employees who arenÂt working during the shutdown can collect unemployment, while those who are on the job without pay cannot.But the rules are being applied unevenly. California, for example, is encouraging everyone affected by the shutdown to apply for unem-ployment, even those still on the job.The rules made no sense to Charisma Banks, whose hus-band is deployed on a ship with the Coast Guard. The Chesapeake, Virginia, mother of a 9-year-old boy called the state unemployment office to ask whether her husband could qualify for benefits. She was told no.ÂTheyÂre like, ÂHereÂs where it gets sticky: Even though heÂs not getting a paycheck, heÂs still employed,ÂÂŽ she said.Banks, 34, has signed her son up for free lunch at school and applied for a grant from the American Legion. ÂI donÂt even know how to go to food banks, but I had to learn this week,ÂŽ she said.Will Kohler, a furloughed, $38,000-a-year IRS tax examiner in Covington, Kentucky, applied for unem-ployment but ran into another kind of complication: His application is in limbo because the Treasury Department office that needs to verify his claim is closed as a result of the shutdown.Kohler said many coworkers are in the same predicament. Not a single one has been approved for unem-ployment, he said. He said workers like him are stuck in a difficult position, in part because they are restricted by government ethics rules from getting many kinds of outside work.ÂWhen it gets to a point where government employees have to go to a food bank, this is not the America that I grew up in,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs mind-boggling. It really is.ÂŽMick Devine, the New England vice president for the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, said some of his unionÂs members have been hesitant to apply for unemployment because they will just have to give it back.Kathy Catanzaro, an administrator at Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, said she is seeing the same thing: ÂPeople are a little bit apprehensive about filing because they know theyÂll have to pay it back once theyÂre paid and get back to work.ÂŽAn untold number of work-ers are also tapping other public assistance programs such as food stamps.In Corpus Christi, Texas, Haley Hernandez, a stay-at-home mother of four and wife of an active-duty member of the Coast Guard, said she has applied for free lunches for her children, and she is await-ing an electronic food stamps card in the mail. She wonders how they will pay their $1,400 mortgage.ÂThis is a first for us,ÂŽ Her-nandez said. ÂHonestly, itÂs pretty shameful, I feel, that any government employee would have to ask for food stamps or any kind of assistance like that. You would think that they would take better care of their service members.ÂŽNeed a handFederal workers hurt by shutdown apply for unemployment
** A8 Friday, January 18, 2019 | The News HeraldNew prison chief o ers optimismGovernment shutdown not a ÂcrisisÂ ANOTHER VIEW Florida is a state that values efficiency and performance, so itÂs been an outrage that our elected leaders have allowed the stateÂs prison system to take a back seat to those in Georgia and Texas. In those similarly conservative Southern states, prison reforms have protected public safety and saved money. In contrast, Florida has been mired in an archaic system that keeps people in prison, scrimps on rehabilitation and does nothing as offenders keep returning. ItÂs just dumb. Smart justice programs target prisoners who arenÂt threats to society, and gives them the tools to become productive citizens. ItÂs promising news, then, that Gov. Ron DeSantis has appointed Mark Inch, the former head of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, to lead the Florida Department of Corrections. Inch has built a career specializing in prison management, and has received a lifetime achievement award from the American Correctional Association. If Inch is as smart as his resume implies, he will immediately meet with experts at Florida State UniversityÂs Project on Accountable Justice and FSUÂs Institute for Justice, Research and Development. The Project on Accountable Justice has been promoting the use of smart justice techniques for years. The Institute for Justice, Research and Development in FSUÂs College of Social Work is in the midst of an impressive study that is examining best practices for transitioning prisoners to productive lives. A November report outlined the basics. A random controlled trial is recruiting 2,200 prisoners in one of 50 state prisons in Florida, Kentucky, Texas and Pennsylvania. Some of the participants will be enrolled in the Five-Key Model for Reentry, a special program designed to give them a hand up to productive lives. Others in the control group will simply be followed, but they will receive the standard services The five keys to a successful transition are job services, coping strategies, positive social engagement, positive relationships and healthy thinking patterns. The central tenet of the program is to link ex-offenders with jobs. But the challenges ex-offenders face can also be rudimentary in nature. For example, one reentry program participant Â„ released after 28 years in prison Â„ didnÂt know how to pump gas, drive or buy groceries; he needed help with experiencing panic attacks in public. A snapshot of the ex-offenders includes these statistics: Â€ More than 96 percent of them have experienced a traumatic event. Â€ Almost 60 percent have had a family member or friend murdered. ÂI think most of my participants are struggling with trauma,ÂŽ said one therapist. The challenge for Inch is to persuade the Florida Legislature to improve rehabilitation initiatives, to provide sufficient funding and training for prison guards and avoid more devastating setbacks like the one that occurred last year when the corrections department slashed substance abuse services, transitional housing and reentry programs because of a $28 million deficit. That was a classic example of dumb justice. ItÂs now time for Florida to try the smart kind. Adapted from a Florida Times-Union editorialOUR VIEWThis government shutdown is now longer than any in history. The media keep using the word Âcrisis.ÂŽ ÂShutdown sows chaos, confusion and anxiety!ÂŽ says The Washington Post. ÂPain spreads widely.ÂŽ The New York Times headlined, itÂs all Âjust too much!ÂŽ But wait. Looking around America, I see people going about their business Â„ families eating in restaurants, employees going to work, children playing in playgrounds, etc. I have to ask: WhereÂs the crisis? Pundits talk as if government is the most important part of America, but it isnÂt. We need some government, limited government. But most of life, the best of life, goes on without government, many of the best parts in spite of government. Of course, the shutdown is a big deal to the 800,000 people who arenÂt being paid. But they will get paid. Government workers always do Â„ after shutdowns. Given a chance, private citizens often step in to do things government says only government can do. The Washington Post ran a front-page headline about farmers Âreeling... because they arenÂt receiving government support checks.ÂŽ But why do farmers even get Âsupport checksÂŽ? One justification is Âsaving family farms.ÂŽ But the money goes to big farms. Government doesnÂt need to Âguarantee the food supply,ÂŽ another justification for subsidies. Most fruit and vegetable farmers get no subsidies, yet there are no shortages of peaches, plums, green beans, etc. Subsidies are a scam created by politicians who get money from wheat, cotton, corn and soybean agribusinesses. Those farmers should suck it up and live without subsidies, too. During shutdowns, government tells Ânonessential workersÂŽ not to come to work. But if theyÂre nonessential, then why do we pay 400,000 of them? Why do we still pay 100,000 American soldiers in Germany, Japan, Italy and England? DidnÂt we win those wars? We could take a chainsaw to so much of government. The New York Times shrieks, ÂShutdown Curtails FDA Food Inspections!ÂŽ Only if you read on do you learn that meat and poultry inspection is done by the Department of Agriculture. TheyÂre still working. And the FDA is restarting some inspections as well. More important, meat is usually safe not because of government Â„ but because of competition. Food sellers worry about their reputations. They know theyÂll get bad publicity if they poison people (think Chipotle), so they take many more safety measures than government requires. One meat producer told me they employ 2,000 more safety inspectors than the law demands. Lazy reporters cover politicians. Interviewees are usually in one place Â„ often Washington, D.C. Interviewing politicians is easier than covering people pursuing their own interests all over America. But those are the people who make America work. Even security work is done better by the private sector. At San FranciscoÂs airport, security lines move faster. Passengers told me, ÂThe screeners are nicer!ÂŽ The TSA even acknowledged that those screeners are better at finding contraband. ThatÂs because San Francisco (Kansas City, Seattle and a dozen smaller airports) privatized the screening process. Private companies are responsible for security. Private contractors are better because they must compete. Perform badly, and they get fired. But government never fires itself. Government workers shout, ÂWe are essential!ÂŽ But I say: ÂGive me a break. Most of you are not.ÂŽ John Stossel is a syndicated columnist for Creators Syndicate and author of ÂNo They CanÂt! Why Government Fails Â„ But Individuals Succeed.ÂŽ By Christine FlowersI might buy a gun. IÂd need a permit. And lessons on how to shoot, a place to keep it safe, and a way to overcome the fear that IÂd shoot myself. IÂm not a natural gun owner. IÂm more likely to be holding a knitting needle than a Glock but recent events have made me rethink my natural aversion to weapons, an aversion that has nothing to do with philosophical opposition. IÂm the one they picked last for all the intramural sports in grade school because I have the precision vision of Mr. Magoo and could trip over a non-existent wire. But itÂs time to take my life into my own hands, forget about all of the anti-gun rhetoric that I hear bandied about by those who exploit tragedy for their own political purposes, and make 2019 the year that I stop expecting others to look out for me. It seems that weÂve become a society where criminals and alleged criminals are given an outsized amount of sympathy. Even President Trump just touted his criminal justice reform package. While I donÂt think the solution is an old-style Dodge City shootout, itÂs dawned on me that I might need something more than my persuasive personality as protection. Then, the other day, a fellow who called me a fascist posted something on my Facebook page that transcends First Amendment protections. It never used to bother me that the swampy comments sections of this and other websites are filled with toxicity. The great Chuck Stone, legendary columnist for the Daily News in its halcyon years used to run a regular section called ÂAnd the Angels Sing,ÂŽ in which he reprinted some of the letters he would get. Fortunately for Chuck, he operated at a time when you had to identify yourself with a signature and contact information. But the person who posted on my Facebook page shared a photo of a young boy standing over a priest heÂd just shot through the forehead. He also made some comments that I found personally threatening, and I called the police. It was the first time IÂd ever done that. The following day, I heard helicopters overhead and looked out the window to find Broad Street filled with police. I later learned, a murder suspect from Delaware was on the lam just a block or so from my office. ÂArmed and dangerousÂŽ was the description on some news sites. As I write this, he hasnÂt been apprehended. Many years ago, my auntÂs ex husband came to our house looking for her. When my mother told him she wasnÂt there, he put a gun to her forehead. By the grace of God and superhuman calm, she talked him down. I used to believe that kind of courage was all IÂd need. Not anymore.

** The News Herald | Friday, January 18, 2019 A9By Cesar GarciaThe Associated PressBOGOTA, Colombia Â„ At least nine people were killed and dozens more injured in a car bombing at a heavily guarded police academy in ColombiaÂs capital on Thurs-day, recalling the high-profile attacks seen during the blood-iest chapters of the countryÂs drug-fueled guerrilla conflict.The scene outside the General Santander police academy in southern Bogota was chaotic in the immediate aftermath of the midmorning attack, the biggest against a police or military facility in the capital in years.Videos circulating on social media show panicked police officers carrying injured col-leagues on stretchers along a road strewn with debris and body parts. In the distance, the skeletal steel remains of the truck used in the attack can be seen still burning while approaching ambulances blare.President Ivan Duque rushed back to the capital with his top military advisers from a visit to a western state to oversee the police investigation.Chief Prosecutor Nestor Martinez said a man named Jose Aldemar Rojas driving a 1993 Nissan pick-up loaded with 175 pounds of pentolite carried out the attack. He said the car had its last offi-cial mechanical revision some six months ago in the eastern state of Arauca, along the border with Venezuela.ÂThis is an attack not only against the young, the security forces or the police. ItÂs an attack against society,ÂŽ Duque said in a brief statement after surveying the blast scene. ÂThis demented terrorist act will not go unpunished.ÂŽThe police said at least nine people were killed, while BogotaÂs health department said another 54 were injured. Among the dead were a Pan-amanian and an Ecuadorian national.Rafael Trujillo said he was delivering a care package to his son Gerson, who entered the school just two days ago, when he was stopped in his tracks by the blast that destroyed windows in apart-ment buildings as far as four blocks away.ÂIÂm sad and very wor-ried because I donÂt have any information about my son,ÂŽ said Trujillo, standing out-side the facility, where police officers had set up a taped perimeter as forensic special-ists surveyed the blast site.Authorities were at a loss to explain how the vehicle slipped through a gate permanently protected by explosive-sniffing dogs, heavily-armed guards and security cameras. But there were unconfirmed reports based on leaked recordings of phone conversations of officers on the scene that the driver rammed past the checkpoint as if carrying out a suicide attack Â„ something unprecedented in decades of political violence in Colombia.Health authorities in Bogota appealed for residents to donate blood at one of four collection points in the capi-tal to help treat those injured, the majority of whom were rushed to a police hospital.For decades, residents of Bogota lived in fear of being caught in a bombing by leftist rebels or Pablo EscobarÂs Medellin drug cartel. But as ColombiaÂs conflict has wound down, security has improved and residents have lowered their guard.While authorities had yet to suggest who was behind the attack, and no armed group claimed responsibility, attention was focused on left-ist rebels from the National Liberation Army, which has been stepping up attacks on police targets in Colombia amid a standoff with the con-servative Duque over how to re-start stalled peace talks.9 dead in car bombing at Colombia police academyEmergency personnel respond to the scene of a deadly car bombing at a police academy Thursday in Bogota, Colombia. [THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Matthew Lee and Deb RiechmannThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ High-level talks aimed at finalizing a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are planned for this week in Washington, U.S. officials said Thursday.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to meet former North Korean spy chief Kim Yong Chol at a Washington hotel on Friday. The meeting will likely be followed by a Kim visit to the White House, where he could meet with Trump, according to two officials, who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.Neither the U.S. nor North Korea has announced any meetings, although Kim Yong Chol arrived earlier Thursday in Bei-jing, where he was booked on a flight to the U.S., South KoreaÂs Yonhap News Agency reported. A motorcade that included the North Korean ambassadorÂs car and a Chinese car with a sign reading Âstate guestÂŽ could be seen departing from a VIP area at the airport.Trump has spoken several times of having a second summit with Kim early this year and has exchanged multiple letters with the North Korean despite little tangible progress on a vague denuclearization agreement reached at their first meeting in Singapore last June. Since then, several private ana-lysts have published reports detailing continuing North Korean development of nuclear and missile technology.At a conference of U.S. diplomats at the State Department on Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence acknowledged the lack of progress. He called the Trump-Kim dialogue ÂpromisingÂŽ but stressed that Âwe still await concrete steps by North Korea to dis-mantle the nuclear weapons that threaten our people and our allies in the region.ÂŽA planned meeting between Pompeo and Kim Yong Chol in New York last November was called off abruptly. U.S. officials said at the time that North Korea had canceled the session.A White House official, while not confirming plans for FridayÂs meeting, said Âa lot of positive thingsÂŽ are happening related to North KoreaÂs denuclearization. The official said Trump and Kim Jong Un had established a Âgood relationshipÂŽ and that U.S.-North Korea con-versations were continuing.The official, who also spoke on condition of ano-nymity, said the two sides were Âworking to make progressÂŽ on the denuclearization goal and that Trump Âlooks forward to meeting Chairman Kim again at their second summit at a place and time yet to be determined.ÂŽUS, NKorea to hold talks on 2nd Trump-Kim summitChol

ÂWeÂve only had three city halls.ÂŽThe renovated building Â„ formerly the Trustmark bank Â„ is set to open to the public at 10 a.m. Feb. 4. The 60,000-square-foot facility will allow all the departments to be consolidated under one roof to create Âone-stop shoppingÂŽ for Panama City residents.The path has not been smooth. First, there were issues with the space that had been set aside for a meeting room having columns that would obscure the view of attendees, causing the commission to decide to not build a meeting room and instead meet at the countyÂs chambers. Then, there was an issue with the price when it came in at a little more than $16 million, more than double what the commission had been expecting, and it was revealed there was missing and incomplete paperwork. The city is considering legal action against its consul-tants, ZHA, as a result. And then, there was Hurricane Michael.Before the storm, Jones said the city had planned to open the new city hall on Dec. 15.ÂThe building did take some damage,ÂŽ Jones said. ÂThe HVAC unit tumbled off its mount ... which caused some localized flooding on the top floor.ÂŽThere also was some water damage in the basement. The good news, Jones said, is that the builderÂs risk insur-ance will cover the costs of those damages so it will not affect the cityÂs bottom line.ÂWeÂve been on a really long road, and this is a great step into the cityÂs future,ÂŽ Jones said. ÂThis is a build-ing everyone can be proud of.ÂŽ With the larger footprint, the city will house more than 100 people in the build-ing, compared to 44 people at the previous city hall. There also will be space for the cityÂs FEMA consultants to set up an office to, hope-fully, quicken the recovery process. Jones said having more people in one place will encourage teamwork.The city is currently operating from A.D.

ÂYou have a lot of people from out of town.ÂŽIn addition to long wait times, some contractors might perform work that homeowners or business owners consider inade-quate. Koehnemann said the first questions a cus-tomer should ask is how many ongoing projects a contractor has and if the contractor is licensed in Florida.ÂThe quality standards have diminished,ÂŽ said Koehnemann. ÂWhen someone is rebuilding a house, they may just betrying to do it quickly. TheyÂre interested in making a quick buck.ÂŽDespite the challenges, there also might be a silver lining with contractors coming into Bay County, according to Roberts.ÂIt is easy to be under the impression that con-tractors coming from outside of Bay County to do work in our communities is a bad thing. It is not,ÂŽ Roberts said. ÂWhile we are encouraging individuals to do business with local companies, think about this. Those contractors that are coming in are going to be here for a while. A lot of them are relocating to our community and opening up storefronts, buying homes and becoming tax-paying citizens.ÂŽCompanies coming into Bay County also are hiring local residents to complete projects, and legitimate companies should be embraced, said Roberts.ÂIn addition, more contractors in our area equals more money for the economy. Those out-side vendors are staying in hotels, buying grocer-ies, going to restaurants and spending money on entertainment, all of which is taxable,ÂŽ said Roberts. ÂThat money is then going back into our economy through the bed tax, sales tax and infrastructure surtaxes, all of which go to fund improvement projects to literally help build a better Bay.ÂŽ REBUILDINGFrom Page B1ÂYou say to yourself: ÂWhat can I do to help?Â ÂŽ Sejour said as workers wearing badges and TSA jackets lined up behind him to choose between the evening offerings of fish or pork.

Other airport workers donated food, baby supplies and toiletries Tuesday and Wednesday.At Tampa International Airport, officials partnered with two charities to open a food bank so federal workers not getting paid can get food and toiletries.ÂGot some diapers for the baby,ÂŽ Randall Baker, a TSA member for almost nine years, told Tampa television station WTSP.

** B4 Friday, January 18, 2019 | The News HeraldBy Tim CroftPort St. Joe Star | 850-227-7827 @PSJ_Star | email@example.comPORT ST. JOE Â„ The board of Triumph Gulf Coast Inc. heard a presentation this week concerning the impacts on property values and tax rolls in just one county hit hard by Hurricane Michael. It was sobering news.Gulf County Property Appraiser Mitch Burke provided the information his employees have gleaned so far in their work to craft a property roll, with a long way to go before the tentative roll is certified in July.ÂWe still have a great deal of work to do,ÂŽ Burke said. ÂWe are very early in our appraisal.ÂŽBut if the numbers in July look anything like the numbers Burke presented Monday, local governments will be in for serious sticker-shock come budget time this summer.As just one example, at the high end of BurkeÂs current calculations, the County Commission would see a decrease in revenue of almost $4 mil-lion next year, based on current millage rates.Triumph staff members are reviewing a pre-application from three Gulf County taxing authorities, the County Commission, Gulf Dis-trict Schools and the city of Port St. Joe, seeking more than $21 million in grant funding to abate a loss of tax revenue during the next three years.At least one other county is seeking tax abatement grant dollars from Triumph because of the storm.After the hurricane, the Triumph board communicated with all eight counties to which it is disbursing BP fine dollars that if they wished to change or eliminate submitted projects, the board was keen to work with them.ÂWe are very sensitive to the devastation and costs from the storm,ÂŽ said Don Gaetz, Triumph board chairman. ÂThis is a monumental challenge for leadership.ÂŽBurke said his office and staff must look at each of Gulf CountyÂs 19,000 parcels and has received some help from the office of the St. JohnÂs County Property Appraiser and his staff.As of this week, BurkeÂs office had completed assessment of 32 percent of the countyÂs parcels.His job is complicated, Burke noted, by the lack of sales since Hurricane Michael, with just 77 sales since the storm compared to some 800 for the year.Assessing comparable recent sales, indicating market conditions, is a significant component of the work the property appraiser must do each year.ÂThe lack of sales since the storm will make it dif-ficult,ÂŽ Burke said.In addition, because of the extent of beach erosion his staff has found along the cape and peninsula, which accounts for some 40 percent of the countyÂs tax base, many land values in coastal areas will have to be looked at again, Burke said. He expressed a concern that in many cases, a home has been structurally compromised, a factor the property appraiser might not become aware of until the home does not survive the next storm.Burke provided broad strokes for the current numbers.The countyÂs property value last year was $1.739 billion, $918 million of that value found in land.BurkeÂs office currently is estimating a loss of 10 percent to 15 percent, or $91 million to $137.8 mil-lion, in land values.Another $602 million in value was derived last year from primary struc-tures and Burke currently is estimating a drop of 30 percent to 40 percent in that component, equal to $180 million to $240 million.In the area of so-called extras, accessory buildings, pole barns, etc., Burke said the estimated decrease in value would be 50 percent to 60 percent.The drop in the value of personal property was estimated at 10 percent to 20 percent.And in classified agricultural lands, Burke noted a recent report from a Florida Senate committee detailing the devastation to the timber industry from Michael.The statewide loss in commodities, forestry, cattle, peanuts, is estimated at $1.475 billion, Burke said, citing the report and noted that in the case of forestry, the impact will be felt for at least four years as forests must be replanted and grow.In the county, the decrease in value of agri-culture lands currently is estimated at 50 percent, Burke said. ÂWe will probably see a reduction in (agriculture) for at least the next few years,ÂŽ Burke said.In all, county property values currently are esti-mated to fall by 30 percent to 40 percent, $347 mil-lion to $521 million, Burke said.ÂYour task is monumental,ÂŽ said Triumph board member Jason Shoaf. ÂI will be very anxious to learn the final numbers in July.ÂŽGulf County property values could drop 40 percentWAKULLASunken mastodon being excavated at Wakulla Springs For about a week, scien-tists with Aucilla Research Institute have been under-taking an excavation of mammoth proportions at Wakulla Springs State Park.Well, more accurately, mastodon proportions.Mastodon bones were first discovered in Wakulla Springs in 1850 and scien-tists have been researching them for more than 150 years. Many of them are concentrated in an area called the Bone Cave. This most recent excavation site is just beyond the boundary of the swimming area at the state park.According to news reports and researchers with Aucilla, the water clarity at Wakulla has been an issue when it comes to excavating the bones of the giant, elephant-like ancient. Scientists said there possibly might be a second mastodon near the excavation site, or evidence of human interaction with the ancient creatures.The scientists plan to wrap up the excavation by Jan. 20, according to social media posts.PANAMA CITYTrees being given away in Marianna, Panama CityPanhandle residents can get free trees at events intended to replace trees lost in Hurricane Michael, according to a post on the Florida Forest ServiceÂs Facebook page.Tree distribution and planting events will happen at 9 a.m. Friday at the Chipola College Student Center, 3094 Indian Circle, Marianna, and at Florida State University-Panama City, 4750 Collegiate Drive, at 1 p.m.TALLAHASSEEVehicle decals sought for organ donorsFlorida organ donors could get free decals for their cars, minivans or trucks under a bill filed Wednesday for consideration during the 2019 legislative session.Rep.

** The News Herald | Friday, January 18, 2019 B5By Mike Schneider The Associated PressLAKE BUENA VISTA Â„ With excitement building over a new ÂStar WarsÂŽ land opening this year at Disney World, itÂs easy to forget a slew of new entertainment shows also are debuting in the biggest year for the theme park resort in two decades.If the famous Disney Imagineers provide the ÂwowÂŽ factor with their fantastical feats of engineering on rides and attractions, itÂs the entertainment division that provides Disney WorldÂs heart.Disney World recently invited The Associated Press for an exclusive, behind-thescenes look at how it puts the shows together. The AP saw dancers rehearsing in a studio, rows of seamstresses stitching together costumes, a warehouse full of parade floats and a room where virtual reality technology is used to help build a new animatronic show.The results of those labors take stage today when Disney World unveils a new Magic Kingdom parade, a Hollywood Studios street showing off the characters from ÂThe IncrediblesÂŽ franchise, a Caribbean-style street band in Animal Kingdom and the start of an arts festival at EPCOT. In a few months, the resort opens a new animatronics show based on the ÂCarsÂŽ character Light-ning McQueen.HereÂs a look at the behind-the-scenes people who produce the pixie dust. Many of them started out as performers and have been at Disney World for decades. The bossBettina Buckley oversees the entertainment divisionÂs 6,700 workers in 100 different disciplines responsible for more than 200,000 performances a year at the resort.Putting a show based on a character under the Disney corporate umbrella in Disney World extends the life of that franchise, ultimately making it more valuable to the company. When deciding on which character or property to use for a show, she pays attention to what visitors say in surveys and letters.She also considers the available space and how the show would affect the brand.ÂIf a character resonates, we stop and say, ÂHey, maybe we should do something,Â ÂŽ said Buckley, vice presi-dent of live entertainment at the resort. The dreamersOnce a character or intellectual property is picked, creative development director Reed Jones, show writer Allison Hirsch and a team consisting of a puppeteer, a juggler, a musical theater pro, an improv artist, technicians and musicians meet for weekly brainstorming sessions to figure out how to bring the story into the three-dimensional world through writing, costumes, music and lighting. No idea is off the table.ÂItÂs a one-hour variety show. We kind of canÂt let people see it because itÂs really wacky and funny,ÂŽ Jones said. The realistJoseph Greggory ÂGGÂŽ Cook makes sure the ideas that Âthe dreamersÂŽ come up with can actually work. ÂI am the rubber that meets the road,ÂŽ said Cook, manager of theat-rical design and technical production. He is helped by a dark-ened Âpre-visualizationÂŽ room where two large screens and a virtual real-ity headset help him see what shows will look like in a 3D model, and how they will be maintained, before they are built.ÂItÂs the hub of the wagon wheel, if you will. We previsualize our entire show, soup to nuts,ÂŽ Cook said. ÂIt allows us the opportunity not to have to build a real-world model.ÂŽA peek at how Disney resort shows are madeActors with giant puppets perform the show ÂFinding Nemo-The MusicalÂŽ at Walt Disney World.

** B6 Friday, January 18, 2019 | The News HeraldBy Christine SextonThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ Doctors often ask patients to fill out medi-cal histories.But before being licensed in Florida, doc-tors have to divulge their own medical histories to the state, including disclosing whether they have been treated for mental-health or substance-abuse disorders in the past five years.That could change soon.A committee of the Florida Board of Medicine gave preliminary approval last month to eliminate the questions about past treatment of mental health and substance abuse. Instead, applicants would be asked whether they currently have any condition that impairs them from safely practicing and whether they currently are using drugs or intoxicating chemicals.Stephanie Haridopolos, a Melbourne primary-care physician who recently stepped down from the Board of Medicine, said the revised questions would allow physicians to seek necessary treatment without Âworrying about whatÂs going to happen to their licenseÂŽ while enabling the state to Âensure the health, safety and welfare of the people.ÂŽHaridopolos, whose husband is former Senate President Mike Haridopolos, chaired the panel that gave initial approval to the change.But the move still requires full board approval and faces oppo-sition from some board members who fear it might be a mistake.ÂThe change in the health history questions Âƒ concerns me. And con-cerns me greatly,ÂŽ Board of Medicine member Magdalena Averhoff said.The proposal comes two years after the American Medical Association House of Delegates encouraged state medical boards to make the change amid increased understanding about physician suicide.According to a 2015 study published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, between 300 and 400 physicians commit suicide each year. The suicide rate among men who are physicians is 1.41 times higher than for the general population of men, the study found.The risk is even higher for female physicians Â„ 2.27 times greater than for the general population of women.Students enrolled in Florida medical schools also are struggling with health and wellness, according to a 2014 state report. Conducted jointly by the Florida Medical Association and the Council of Florida Medi-cal School Deans, the survey of 862 students showed that 10 percent endorsed thoughts of committing suicide in medical school or of believing they would be better off dead.Other findings in the 2014 Florida report: 63 percent of those surveyed said their phys-ical health had worsened since beginning medical school, and 60.6 percent reported their psycholog-ical health had worsened.The survey also showed that 70.1 of respondents indicated feeling they would benefit from psy-chological resources, but 60.2 percent admitted they never had utilized any services. John P. Fogarty, chair-man of the Council of Florida Medical School Deans, said 10 medical schools across the state have taken steps to help students navigate what can be a stressful time.But the efforts, he said, could be hampered if the state doesnÂt change the medical history background.ÂIf that stigma is something that is going to follow them through-out their career, then the larger question is, are they going to actually seek help when they are going to need help?ÂŽ said Fogarty, who is dean of the Florida State Univer-sity College of Medicine.The medical history questions are asked during the initial application for licensure, whether the applicant is a new physician or a physician from another state who is seek-ing Florida licensure.The state received 4,928 initial first-time applications from people wanting to be licensed as medical doctors in fiscal year 2017-2018, the latest available data. It approved 3,928 licenses.Change seeks to remove ÂstigmaÂ for doctorsBy David AdlersteinThe Apalachicola Times dadlerstein@starfl. com | 850-653-8894APALACHICOLA Â„ Get ready for a big weekend in Apalachicola, as the ninth annual Oyster Cook-Off ener-gizes the downtown.The event, which begins today and continues all day Saturday, raises money to benefit the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Depart-ment. ItÂs held every year on the Friday and Satur-day before Martin Luther King Jr. Day in downtown Apalachicola at Riverfront Park.All proceeds go directly toward paying for the new fire truck the department was able to purchase a few years ago because of this sole fundraising event.Organizer Marisa Getter, who helps coor-dinate a group of energetic volunteers, said about 30 artists showed up at the paint-out at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and the Arts (HCA) last week to create works of art that will be auctioned as part of a silent auction.A preview of the auction begins at 6 p.m. today at the HCA, where viewers can take an item home by paying a set price.ÂOr you can bid on it and hope itÂs still there Saturday evening,ÂŽ said Getter. Bidding closes at 4 p.m. Saturday. In addition to the art, there are various other items, including a barbecue pit and hand-made apron.The event, of course, features oysters galore, either grilled, raw, fried or stewed, as well as peel-and-eat shrimp and fried shrimp, hot dogs and hamburgers offered by the fire department, local beer from Oyster City Brewing Company, live music by the John Sutton Band, childrenÂs activities under the direction of Jennifer Sheffield, performances by dancers from Pam Nobles Studios, dancing firefighters, and a 5K run, under the direction of Shelley Shepard, begin-ning at 8 a.m. Saturday at Riverfront Park.You also can enter your best recipe and be a contestant in the oyster cook-off. The top three winners receive trophies and bragging rights.Judging the contest will be John Solomon, Donna Duncan and Samantha Gilbert from the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce, which is appropriate because the chamber team has dominated the contest in recent years, including taking home the top prize last year. Getter said six contes-tants have signed up so far, but she expects more to come forward by the start of the completion Saturday morning. Each team cooks with local oysters provided by the cook-off. Much of what the crowd will be enjoy-ing is imported from other parts of the Gulf because of the scarcity of oysters in Apalachicola Bay.Well-mannered pets are welcomed on a leash.For more info or to sign up, visit www.oystercoo-koff.com/cook-off.Donations and volun-teers help make the event a success.

Only then can you Â“ gure out the best way to serve and support. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ YouÂre in no mood to be told what to do, however wellmeaning the other person may be. Even if they are just trying to protect you, show you love or share a skill, theyÂd better have total respect and manners or it wonÂt go well. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ Your pet project is like a friend. You love to spend time with it, speak up for it, go through the ups and downs with it, and do what it takes to loyally see it through. ItÂs not just business or recreation. ItÂs a representation of you. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ You have no problem delivering on your promises to others. When it comes to fulÂ“ lling your own orders, youÂre not as vigilant. Make your wishes for yourself a top priority. Let your actions reÂ” ect this. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Â„ YouÂve had enough experience with certain types of social situations to know what youÂre likely to enjoy. You need a little enjoyment now so you may as well steer clear of anything thatÂs not that. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Â„ Subtle, discomforting forces at play make you feel as though youÂre sitting too close to the air conditioning vent Â„ a cool wind, and too direct. YouÂll feel better after you pick up and move somewhere warmer and quieter. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Â„ When you feel the sandwich needs a dill pickle, a sweet pickle wonÂt do. Sure, they are both pickles, but the Â” avor proÂ“ le is entirely different. Bottom line: You want what you want. Apply it across the board. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Â„ The fact that humankind needs entertainment and beauty in order to thrive is nothing new. Even the cave dwellers painted pictures and played instruments. Let yourself relax and have fun. ItÂs part of what makes you human. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Â„ ThereÂs a certain urgency to matters, as youÂre starting to realize that if the job is done right and quickly you just might pull off the feat youÂve been working on for weeks. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Â„ The feeling behind a deal matters. People spend money emotionally. They react to the situation, go with what feels easy given the circumstance, taking on a Âwhen in RomeÂŽ sort of attitude. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ In police work, resisting arrest is a serious crime. ThereÂs an authoritative voice in your head thatÂs a little like an ofÂ“ cer upholding your own personal laws.

[MARK SCHIEFELBEIN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Dustin Kent firstname.lastname@example.orgPANAMA CITY Â„ For many young teams, one of the biggest struggles is figuring out a way to win close games and handle pressure moments with players who have little to no experience in such situations.YouÂd be hard pressed to explain that to Rutherford, a team with no seniors in its rotation and five who are freshmen or sophomores, after taking yet another close district victory on Thursday night at Gulf Coast.ÂI donÂt know how we pull these games out,ÂŽ Rams coach Rhondie Ross said after his teamÂs 60-58 triumph over Arnold, RutherfordÂs fourth win of three or fewer points against District 1-6A foes. ÂIÂm kind of at a loss for words.ÂŽRutherford improved to 10-7 overall and 4-0 in league play, while Arnold fell to 7-10 and 1-3 in district. ItÂs the second straight narrow victory in the series in the last month for the Rams, who also beat the Marlins 56-55 in Panama City Beach on Dec. 18.Jermaine Daniels led Ruth-erford with 15 points and made a pair of clutch free throws with 13.1 seconds to play to put the Rams ahead for good. Justin Martin scored 16 points to lead the Marlins in his first game against his former team after transferring to Arnold earlier this season.It appeared as though Martin would get the best of his old teammates when he hit a tough jumper in the lane and drew a foul with 28.7 seconds on the clock, converting the free throw for a three-point play to put Arnold up 58-57.Daniels attacked the basket on the ensuing Rutherford possession and appeared to have his shot cleanly blocked up top, but officials ruled he was fouled below with the body and was sent to the line for the go-ahead foul shots.Martin missed a contested jumper on ArnoldÂs next possession and Daniels split a pair of free throws with 3.9 seconds remaining. Zack SinclairÂs desperation heave from half court was well off as time expired.It was an impressive finish by the Rams, who rallied from eight points down late in the third quarter to notch their eighth win in their last 10 outings.ÂTheyÂve got a heck of a ball club over there,ÂŽ Ross said of the Marlins. ÂTheyÂve got a lot of talent and itÂs hard to key on one person. IÂm proud of my kids. They couldÂve easily laid down when they went up eight. I think we grew up a little tonight.

ÂI canÂt believe that my four years is coming so close to and end. Wow, IÂm about to tear up, but IÂm really ready for the playoffs I think weÂre going to go really far.ÂŽIn ThursdayÂs regularseason finale, Flammia set up her teamÂs first two goals. The Mosley team captain and Southern Mississippi signee then scored another for good measure in a 4-0 victory over Arnold (8-4-2) at Bozeman.Flammia felt anything but confident when she stepped up for her penalty kick in the 70th minute. She wasnÂt even supposed to take the shot for Mosley (10-1-1) initially, but junior Mary Beth Whitlock volunteered her.ÂI just get in my head on PKs,ÂŽ Flammia said. ÂI hit the crossbar on one and then I just kept hitting them. For like years and years I would just hit the crossbar.ÂŽShe did it again this time, but the ball bounced in any-ways. It was the second time one of her shots bounced off the goal on Thursday, although she didnÂt have quite the same turn of luck when her free kick hit the right post in the 16th minute.Luckily for Flammia, the ball bounced in the direction of teammate Emily Duncan who sent the ball right back for the score.Those two also hooked up for the DolphinsÂ first goal in the 10th minute when Flam-mia headed for the goal after sucessfully battling three defenders for possesion of the Flammia leads Dolphins to victorySee RAMS, C2 See TENNIS, C2 See DOLPHINS, C2

[MICHAEL CONROY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] six-time Australian titlist Roger Federer or American Taylor Fritz, who were playing on Rod Laver Arena around the same time.While rain prevented early play on outside courts at Melbourne Park, three matches went ahead on the show courts. At one stage, Greek fans had to split their time between the adjoining Rod Laver and Margaret Court Arenas.There was no split loyalties on Rod Laver, where local favorite Ash Barty became the first player through to the fourth round a 7-5, 6-1 win over Maria Sakkari.It was first time a Greek man and woman have advanced to the third round at the same Grand Slam tournament since 1936.Barty continued the so-called ÂBarty PartyÂŽ by ending SakkariÂs run, and will play either former champion Maria Sharapova or defending champion Caroline Wozniacki in the next round.In the only other completed match by early afternoon, former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych beat No. 18-seeded Diego Schwartzman 5-7, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4. Berdych will meet either 2009 champion Rafael Nadal or local favorite Alex de Minaur in the next round.ball. She then sent a pass to Duncan and watched as her teammate found the back of the net.ÂI saw Emily making the run through and there was only one defender,ÂŽ Flammia said. ÂSo I knew if I chipped her then Emily would be through on goal and EmilyÂs fast so sheÂll always get there.ÂŽ Whitlock was reponsi-ble for the final goal of the game in the 74th minute. It was the DolphinsÂ 10th shot on goal while Arnold finished with only three.With the game over, Mosley coach Marek Betkowski recognized the best and worst part of his year is quickly closing in on him. ItÂs almost time to say goodbye to all six of his seniors including Flammia, who he said he first coached when she was9 or 10 years old. ÂItÂs so special, but itÂs going to be very painful at the end to let her go,ÂŽ Betkowski said. Mosley now awaits the start of postseason play next week where Flam-mia hopes to, at the very least, avoid being eliminated by Gulf Breeze as has happened throughout her varsity career.Arnold, meanwhile still has games against Maclay and Gulf Breeze in the next two days before the Marlins finish up the regular season.Both Arnold and Mosley coaches said they expect to meet one more time in the postseason. That will be the last time Arnold coach Danny Griffin will have to worry about all the headaches Flammia has caused him over the years, but even heÂs not quite ready to say goodbye.ÂThe last time we got beat was because she took a crackhead shot that IÂd love watch again,ÂŽ Griffin said of Flammia. ÂIt was beautiful. I donÂt mind watching a beauti-ful game. SheÂs a great, IÂll probably go watch her play when she plays for Southern Miss. Nah, IÂm not glad sheÂs leaving.ÂŽ DOLPHINSFrom Page C1games to go. It has been a bit of a bumpy ride for Arnold as coach Bobby Britton has tried to incor-porate a pair of midseason transfers in Martin and Jeremiah Hudson into his team, but Britton said the Marlins still have time to get the kinks worked out.ÂWeÂve just got to keep getting better. YouÂve got to play your best basket-ball in February and weÂre not in February yet,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs just learning new rotations, learning who gets the ball late in games; we just had some miscues tonight and Rutherford capitalized.ÂŽArnold led 30-29 at halftime and started the third quarter on a 7-0 run featuring a pair of jumpers by Sinclair and a driving layup by Andrew Cetrone.Rutherford started cut-ting into the lead with five straight points to close the third quarter, get-ting a three from Antonio Morgan and a driving bucket by Brian Edwards to make it a three-point game at 46-43.A 3-pointer from Malik Stovall and a fastbreak basket by Lavar Hills on a feed from Daniels following an Arnold turnover gave Rutherford its first lead of the second half at 54-53 with 3:25 remaining.

** The News Herald | Friday, January 18, 2019 C3By Barry WilnerThe Associated PressNOT THEM AGAIN!Sorry America Â„ at least outside of New England Â„ but the team you love to hate is headed back to the Super Bowl.Sure, there are negatives to point out with these Patriots. They havenÂt looked much more than mediocre on the road. Their defense is vulnerable, especially against dynamic passers, and Kansas City certainly has one of those in Patrick Mahomes.New EnglandÂs coaching staff tends to take away an opponentÂs biggest threat. Who is that with the Chiefs, though? Mahomes has Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins as dangerous targets. He has a running game that hasnÂt really missed Kareem Hunt since he was released.Oh yeah, Tom Brady also is 41. At times, heÂs looked it this season.And there are so many posi-tives to list, especially when the Patriots (12-5) get this far. Such as being to eight Super Bowls with Brady at quarterback, winning five. Such as their superb demolition of the Chargers, an opponent many thought was the most balanced team in the post-season; though the ChargersÂ defense looked from the outset as if it wanted no part of frigid Foxborough. Oh yeah, Brady is 41. HeÂs seen pretty much everything, and will particularly like the looks of the spotty pass coverage Kansas City (13-4) provides.The entire environment seems to work for New England. ÂYeah, I think this team thrives on it,ÂŽ receiver Phillip Dorsett says. ÂObviously, thereÂs no elephant in the room, weÂre 3-5 on the road and everybody is going to criticize us for that. WeÂve got our backs against the wall and weÂve just got to go out there and play our best game. ThatÂs the only thing that really matters.ÂŽIt also matters that Chiefs coach Andy Reid rarely outsmarts the Patriots. Indeed, ReidÂs only Super Bowl trip was spoiled by New Eng-land when it beat ReidÂs Eagles for the 2004 title. Reid is 2-6 vs. the Patriots, and lost 43-40 on Oct. 14 at Gillette Stadium.The Chiefs are 3-point favorites, which accounts for the home-field edge. Except in the upcoming arctic conditions, and with the pedigree of the Patriots, this is a matchup Kansas City wonÂt win.UPSET SPECIAL: PATRIOTS, 27-23 Los Angeles Rams (plus 3) at New Orleans SaintsA 45-35 shootout vic-tory for Drew Brees and the Saints on Nov. 4 came in the Superdome. These two have a return matchup Sunday to get to the Super Bowl, and with all their firepower, this one could come down to one factor: experience.That edge clearly falls to the hosts. New Orleans (14-3) has been a postsea-son regular since coach Sean Payton and Brees hooked up in 2006. This is the SaintsÂ third NFC championship appearance Â„ a loss at Chi-cago in January 2007, an overtime win over Minnesota at home three years later. The Saints won the Super Bowl that season, as well.Los Angeles (14-3) had the only unanimous member of the All-Pro team, defensive tackle Aaron Donald. And the Saints lost key DT Sheldon Rankins to a torn Achilles tendon last week-end. Still, this side of the ball looks like a wash.The site of this game is more critical than in the AFC. The way the Superdome rocks can be disruptive to opponents, and uplifting to the homies. Just look at the SaintsÂ win against defend-ing champion Philadelphia last Sunday.So give us BreesÂ calmness and creativity over Jared GoffÂs relative newness.BEST BET: SAINTS, 34-26 Chiefs aim to break 49-year Super Bowl drought on SundayBy Dave SkrettaThe Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Â„ The even-keeled executive with the crisp suit and winning smile stood inside the mostly empty Kansas City Chiefs locker room, his team having just won a home playoff game for the first time in 25 years.He talked about how much it meant to their long-suffering fans. Spoke glowingly about coach Andy Reid, and his young superstar quarterback, Patrick Mahomes. He praised the rest of a team that captured its third straight AFC West title before knocking off the Colts in the playoffs. It wasnÂt until Clark Hunt was asked about winning the AFC title game that he became emotional.You see, the Chiefs were founded by his father, the late Lamar Hunt, who along with seven others in what would be called ÂThe Fool-ish ClubÂŽ founded the AFL.The personable Texas businessmanÂs importance to establishing the modern NFL was honored in 1984, when the league renamed the silver trophy awarded to the winner of the AFC champi-onship game the Lamar Hunt Trophy.So itÂs easy to understand why his son, now the teamÂs chairman and the most visible face of the ownership family, would have tears in the cor-ners of his eyes at the thought of holding it for the first time with a win over the New Eng-land Patriots on Sunday night.ÂItÂs been a long time coming,ÂŽ Clark Hunt said. ÂSince Andy came here weÂve had a lot of shots, but we finally have a chance to win the AFC championship, and to do it at home is so special for us.ÂŽThe Chiefs have never played an AFC title game at Arrowhead Stadium. They won at Buffalo to reach the first Super Bowl, and in Oak-land on their way to their lone Super Bowl triumph in 1970.They lost their only other appearance in Buffalo in January 1994.Indeed, the opportunity to return to the NFLÂs biggest stage for the first time in 49 years has been a long time coming. The Chiefs lost eight consecutive postseason games during one maddening stretch, and squandered the No. 1 seed along the way. They had great individual players Â„ Tony Gonzalez, Priest Holmes, Joe Montana Â„ yet never managed to hoist the AFC championship trophy.Former coach Dick Vermeil, who took the Eagles to the Super Bowl and won it with the Rams, said this week that Âmy biggest regretÂŽ was fail-ing to deliver it during his five seasons in Kansas City.ÂIt would be great. I mean, when your name is on it, thatÂs a pretty big thing,ÂŽ said cur-rent Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who still remembers meeting Lamar Hunt during an owner-ship meeting years ago.Hunt died in December 2006 at the age of 74.ÂTo have the opportunity to work with his kids and Clark in particular, I understand the importance of that,ÂŽ Reid said. ÂNot that he has to tell me. He doesnÂt have to say anything.ÂŽIn fact, the Chiefs make sure everybody knows the importance.ÂOne of the awesome things we do with our player development team is that they take us through the whole history,ÂŽ Mahomes said. ÂWe come over to the museum that we have in the stadium and they take us through how he made the AFL, pretty much from scratch, and had this vision for what is now the AFC and combined it with the NFL and made this beautiful league.ÂIt truly is special for some-one like that who has created your franchise,ÂŽ Mahomes added. ÂYou want to do what-ever you can to bring honor to him and that family.ÂŽ The Patriots are no strang-ers to hoisting the Lamar Hunt Trophy, of course. They are playing for it for the eighth consecutive season, and the coach-quarterback combination of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have succeeded in hoisting it eight times since their first real season together in 2001.But despite a perennial jug-gernaut standing in the way, there is a profound sense of confidence that surrounds the Chiefs these days, an unabashed optimism that can be felt all around town.Fountains are colored red Â„ at least, those that havenÂt frozen Â„ and Chiefs banners hang off many of the cityÂs iconic buildings.Will the long wait end? SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFCORAL SPRINGS, FLA.Panthers star nearing a return after broken ankleThe Florida Panthers desperately need a boost, and Vincent Trocheck has pronounced himself ready to provide one.Barely eight weeks removed from surgery to repair the right ankle that he fractured by crashing into the boards during a game at Ottawa, Trocheck took part in a full practice Thursday for the first time since the injury happened. HeÂs been back on the ice for the last couple weeks, limited to either working out either on his own or with a small group.ÂIÂve been pushing to play for the last couple weeks,ÂŽ Trocheck said. ÂSo I donÂt think itÂs up to me at this point. ItÂs just a matter of whenever they give me the go-ahead. When I get back out there, itÂll be 100 percent me. Whenever they give me the go, IÂll be ready.ÂŽHeÂll likely miss only three more games before returning. The Panthers play Friday against Toronto, Saturday against Nashville and Monday against San Jose.LIMA, PERUAl-Attiyah wins third Dakar Rally crownNasser Al-Attiyah won his third Dakar Rally crown while Toby Price won his second motorbike title in a race which featured one last twist on Thursday.Price came to the 10th and last stage after racing almost 5,200 kilometers with only one minuteÂs lead over Pablo Quintanilla. Then just 10 kilometers into the dune-heavy, 112-kilometer course from Pisco to Lima, Quintanilla fell off his bike and injured his foot. The chances of winning a first Dakar evaporated instantly, but the Chilean got back on his Husqvarna to try and save a podium place. He lost 19 minutes, though, and dropped to fourth overall.CORTINA DÂAMPEZZO, ITALYLedecka chooses Alpine over snowboard worldsAfter months of agonizing over a decision she would have preferred not to have to make, skier-snowboarder Ester Ledecka has finally chosen to compete in the Alpine skiing world championships next month instead of the snowboard worlds.The Czech athlete who won golds in skiing and snowboarding at the Pyeongchang Olympics last year had to make the choice since the parallel giant slalom at the freestyle ski and snowboard world championships in Utah is scheduled for Feb. 4 Â„ the same day that downhill training opens at the skiing worlds in Are, Sweden, and a day before the super-G race there.ÂI go skiing,ÂŽ Ledecka said on Thursday follow-ing a World Cup downhill training session.ÂI would like to go (to) both but I had to make a choice and I made it and IÂm looking forward to it.... The way I have the schedule right now it makes more sense for me.ÂThe decision had to be made and this is the life.ÂŽ The Associated Press Picks: Like it or not, Pats going back to Super Bowl Kansas City coach Andy Reid speaks during a news conference Wednesday in Kansas City, Mo.

SHARON J. MITCHELL, et al., Defendants. ORDER This cause is before the court on Â“PlaintiffÂ’s Motion for Service by Publication and Incorporated Memorandum of Law.Â” (ECF No. 26). This interpleader action involves competing claims for life insurance benefits arising from the death of Floyd L. Mitchell. (ECF No. 1). Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Â§ 1655, when personal service is Â“not practicable,Â” a court may order the Defendant to appear or plead in the action, and this order may be published rather than personally served. Section 1655 also permits an action to proceed after service by publication even when a defendant fails to respond. This procedure may be employed in interpleader actions. See United States v. Estate of Swan, 441 F.2d 1082, 1085 (5th Cir. 1971) (Â“Where, as here, the property is located within the district in which the District Court sits, the action may also fall within that class of actions defined by Section 1655. We believe that Congress did not intend to exclude from coverage under Section 1655 actions such as this one, in which the stake consists of the assets of an estate on deposit in a bank pursuant to court order, the claims are numerous, and service by publication constitutes a reasonable mode of conveying notice to an absent party.Â”). Plaintiff has demonstrated that reasonable efforts were undertaken to serve Defendant Shelley Mitchell (Â“Shelley MitchellÂ”) personally. (ECF Nos. 23-26). Specifically, Plaintiff retained two different process servers, attempted to serve Shelley Mitchell at seven different addresses, and attempted to locate her through her siblings, Defendants Shawn Mitchell and Shannon Faasen. (ECF No. 25). Upon review of the motion and the Â“Affidavit of Diligent Search and InquiryÂ” (ECF No. 25), it is apparent that the current residence of Shelley Mitchell is unknown and all attempts to locate her have failed. (ECF Nos. 23-26). Plaintiff has adequately demonstrated that personal service has not been effective, further efforts at personal service are not practicable and likely would be futile, and the procedure for service by publication set forth in section 1655 is a reasonable course of action in an attempt to serve Shelley Mitchell. Accordingly, it is ORDERED : 1. Â“PlaintiffÂ’s Motion for Service by Publication and Incorporated Memorandum of Law,Â” (ECF No. 26), is GRANTED 2. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Â§ 1655, Shelley Mitchell is ORDERED to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint, (ECF No. 1), no later than March 13, 2019. Failure to respond by this deadline likely will negatively impact any interest that Shelley Mitchell has in the funds at issue in this action and may result in the issuance of a default. 3.Having concluded that personal service of this Order is not practicable, Plaintiff is ORDERED to PUBLISH a copy of this Order (except for paragraph 4 of this Order), in newspapers of general circulation within Panama City, Florida, and Panama City Beach, Florida, at least once per week for six consecutive weeks, beginning no later than the week of January 8, 2019. 5. The deadline for serving the missing Defendant, Shelley Mitchell, is EXTENDED to February 20, 2019 SO ORDERED this 27th day of December 2018. /s/ Michael P. Frank Michael J.

E4 Friday, January 18, 2019 | UNDERCURRENTSBy Tony Simmons firstname.lastname@example.org @PCNHTonySPANAMA CITY Â„ Matty Jankowski opened a one-man show at the Center for the Arts in 2011 (then called the Visual Arts Center) that represented so much of his thought on art Â„ what defined art, and thus, what defined him as an artist. The show was calledÂConceptual/Intervention.ÂŽIts juxtaposition of image, text and found objectschallenged expectations and created a cumulative effect in viewers. It was much the same for those who spent any time with the artist. ÂThe time that IÂve spent on this big blue marble has been experiencing a lot of different things from a point of view of color, shape, form, texture Â„ in a very private way for most of my life, sometimes taking chances and presenting them,ÂŽ he said. ÂIt just confirms the fact that what IÂm doing is important, is necessary Â„ and it is art.ÂŽ My friend Matty is gone now. He died Jan. 12 at the age of 70 at the Covenant Inpatient Hospice Center of Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, after a few years of declining health. He was preceded in death by his parents, Matthew and Lenora Jankowski, and survivedby his sister, LeeAnn Catalano of New Jersey; his two sons, Jason Scully of Kentucky and Adam Scully of New York. Matty was born in Brooklyn, New York, on Nov. 22, 1948. He grew up in a rough neighborhood, and at a young age began supplying fake tattoo art and T-shirt designs for a neighborhood gang called the Crosses. ÂAt 6 or 7, I was doing little diddles of nuns as hotdog figures with their habits blowing in the wind,ÂŽ he said. ÂI was educated by nuns and beaten by nuns, so it was natural.ÂŽ He honorably served his country in the U.S. Air Force, but he never quite took to it: ÂI wanted to do aerial photography, and thatÂs what they promised me,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut once they had me, they wanted me to be a weatherman. I got asked to leave.ÂŽ Mattyenjoyed figurative art, but it was seeing the screen prints by Andy Warhol that excited him enough to want to pursue art.He took a job as a welderÂs helper in a factory, and started welding small pieces of impressionistic sculpture.He decided one day to look up Warhol; the manÂs number was in the phone book. ÂSo much of my life has been like that,ÂŽ Matty said. ÂI say it, and it becomes so.ÂŽ He relocated to Panama City in the early 2000s, bringing truckloads of ÂstuffÂŽ with him from a shop he ran in Brooklyn, where he was known for tattoo art and Âhappenings.ÂŽ He continued collecting and creating, including folk art and found objects placed in new context. Some of his work won ribbons and cashawards in local shows and county fairs, which was personally validating. In2004, Matty was inThe Requiem for Matty: An artist of concept and interventionMatty Jankowski leads a tour of his ÂArchiveÂŽ in 2015.

| Friday, January 18, 2019 E5News HeraldÂs Community Spotlight. His favorite movie was ÂSpellbound.ÂŽ He liked ÂAntiques Roadshow.ÂŽ His favorite musician wasClaude Debussy. And he said moving to Panama City finally allowed him the time and flexibility to create the art he envisioned: ÂLiving in New York City, youÂre constantly dragged through life at 110 mph. Here, youÂre able to establish a more creative flow.ÂŽ That same year, he described his piece ÂVeVe PortalÂŽ for the Panama City Artists show at the VAC (featuringa voodoo symbol crafted on canvas)as Âa tribute to Martha Stewart,ÂŽexplainingthat he used her paint products to make it. In 2005, Mary Ola Miller hosted a retrospective of his collection at the Gallery of Art. ÂA study of people in galleries showed that itÂs just a matter of seconds that people look at a piece of art before they move on,ÂŽ he said. ÂI like doing stuff with text so they have to digest it, take time with it, figure out what it means. ... I love making people work to understand what it means.ÂŽ I first met Matty in 2007 at The Gallery Above. In 2008, he hosted an open mic night there, shared some text art pieces,and asked the audience to write down things they ÂhateÂŽ on index cards. One of the things I wrote was ÂI hate funerals.ÂŽ We were then scattered to the perimeter of the gallery to read out loud the things weÂd written. Matty encouraged us to trade cards. A few abandoned their ÂhatesÂŽ when they left, and I thought how great it would be if only they were actually so easy to leave behind.Matty said later the space we shared and the small gatheringcontributed to a sense of belonging: ÂBeing as intimate as it was made it a special thing that it might not have been if there had been more people. It was a good moment to share creatively.ÂŽ That autumn, he staged ÂShooting Andy Warhol,ÂŽ which focused onthree young womenwith guns andPolaroid cameras posing with his winning artwork,a portrait of Warhol printed on a discarded muffler mounted on a bedpost. Matty took photos of them taking photos of each other, and I took photos and video of the event. The next year, he did an installation on the subject of ÂNothing,ÂŽ which he said was ÂsomethingÂŽ heÂd played with for a long time.ÂWhen they asked me what I was gonna do for the installation, I said, ÂNothing.Â I had just done ÂNothingÂ about a month or so ago out at Pier Park for the street painting. People worked for hours and days doing their paintings of Renaissance masters and great new artwork, and I wound up doing Â0+0=0,Â which is nothing.ÂŽHe shrugged.ÂSome mathematicians argue that.ÂŽ Many years before, heÂd tattooed that formula on a manÂs arm with an empty ink gun. Once the design healed, it disappeared completely. In September 2009, MattyÂs entry for the Holocaust exhibit at the Bay County Public Librarywas a book,ÂAtrocities at Camp Mauthausen,ÂŽ which he wrote afterdiscovering a personal account of World War II history in his fatherÂs war memorabilia. His dadwas an infantryman stationed in Austria and Germany, and theÂbook would still be in storage if I had not been inspired to publish and distributeÂŽ it, he said. For the last several years, Matty has lived in a building off Seventh Street that he dubbed theMatthew L. Jakowski Archive, surrounded byhis collectedart and artifacts. In a video interview there, Matty waxed poetic about his life: ÂAccording to science, thereÂs no reason the human body should die once it begins to live. So, I donÂt know. I donÂt know. IÂve got some questions to ask, myself.ÂŽ In2016,we sorted through boxes ofrecords and paperbacks at the Archive, andI bought an old Fu Manchu novel from him. ÂItÂs all a mountain of wonder here,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs a personal statement of my identity, what I liked and what I collected, as well as my own artwork, my own generation of understanding art and artifacts going back to 1960. It begins then and it ends every day here as I unpack another box.ÂŽ Hisone-man show at the Center for the Arts included things like Mardi Gras beads circling a gilded cage, juxtaposed with a panoramic series of photos of a post-Katrina New Orleans neighborhood wall painted by graffiti artists. Viewers were invited to add their own notes.On another wall was a benchpulled up to a table; viewers were encouraged to write messages or scribble on the table. ÂItÂs really important that we can take everyday objects that are going unnoticed totally and create a new way to present them Â„ that theyÂre now looked at in a different vein,ÂŽ he said. ÂMaybe itÂs that kind of Zen thing, you know: It is if I say it is.ÂŽ Conceptual art isnÂt about forms or materials, Matty said. ItÂs about ideas and meanings, and it demands an active response from the viewer. ItÂs like the definition of sound: unless thereÂs a receiver, thereÂs only silence. The world will be quieter now.

E6 Friday, January 18, 2019 | Season continues Saturday with sold-out showBy Tony Simmons email@example.com @PCNHTonySLYNN HAVEN Â„ Like other local performance groups, the Panama City Pops Orchestra had to find a new stage after Hurricane Michael damaged its regular venue Â„ though in keeping with the nautical theme of its next performance, it wasnÂt a case of just accepting any port in a storm. The Gretchen Nelson Scott Fine Arts Center at Mosley High School is smaller in audience capacity than the Marina Civic Center downtown Â„ 582 at the former, versus the Civic CenterÂs 2,500. But thePops was glad to have the opportunity to make its temporary home there, nonetheless. ÂWe are so fortunate to have access to this brand new stage in this state-ofthe art venue,ÂŽ said Pops Board President Connie Gittard of the year-old facility. ÂThe administration and staff at Mosley have been most accommodating and generous, and have made the transition effortless. We are most grateful that Pops music will be available in the coming months.ÂŽ Because of the smaller venue, SaturdayÂs performance sold out earlier this week. Previously purchased season tickets will be honored and will be mailed to all 2018-2019 season subscribers prior to the Jan. 19 concert. ÂOur membership is approximately 500, so that leaves less than 100 (general admission tickets) to sell to the general public,ÂŽ Gittard noted. Sell-outs are also anticipated for the remainder of the season. To purchase tickets for the upcoming shows, visit PanamaCityPops.org or call 850785-POPS (7677). General admission tickets are $25. Pre-season enthusiasm was high following asuccessful fundraising dinner theater show sponsored by Pineapple WillyÂs and The Wicked Wheel in late September, Gittard said. Eight additional dates featuring a combination of Pops concerts and special events were planned for the 20182019 calendar, but three of those were cancelled as a result of Hurricane Michael. The season resumed with two free holiday concerts Â„ NovemberÂs ÂBeach Home for the HolidaysÂŽ concert at Aaron Bessant Park with Lorrie Morgan, hosted by Visit Panama City Beach, andDecemberÂs ÂHoliday by the BayÂŽ sponsored by Bay Automotive. SaturdayÂs show,ÂCruising the Med,ÂŽ was described as amelodious tour of the Mediterranean with the music of some of ItalyÂs and SpainÂs most beloved composers. Traditionally a combination of familiar, light classical works and popular arrangements, this eveningÂs fare will feature RossiniÂs ÂOverture to La Gazza LadraÂŽ (The Thieving Magpie); de FallaÂs infectious ÂThree-Cornered HatÂŽ; LecuonaÂs immortal ÂMalagueaÂŽ; and many other works to transport the audience on a southern European holiday. ÂWe have pledged ourselves to be the ray ofpromise for a community ravaged by fate,ÂŽ said POPS Conductor and Music Director David Ott. ÂHopes for a spectacular season have never been higher. Pops concerts will be dynamic, beautiful and, most importantly, healing.ÂŽ The season will continue with ÂHeroes & Super HeroesÂŽ onMarch 9,paying tribute to the champions of our day with some of classical musicÂs most memorable heroes, as well as modern mediaÂs scores and soundtracks. On April 27,ÂMyths and MusesÂŽ will examine who inspired the composers of classical music. Hear the works of Debussy and Rimsky-Korsakov as the Pops will alsowelcome acclaimed guest clarinetist, Richie Hawley, performing MozartÂs ÂClarinet Concerto in A Major.ÂŽ One aspect of a Pops evening that wonÂt continue in the new venue is the ÂMoments with the MaestroÂŽ segment of each event. Because ofspace limitations, the pre-concert lecture series will not take place for the remainder of the season. Itis expected to resume with the 2019-2020 season, which isplanned to return to the Marina Civic Center. The Gretchen Nelson Scott Fine Arts Center is located at 501 Mosley Drive, Lynn Haven. Free parking is behind the venue, just off Minnesota Avenue. Concerts start promptly at 7:30 p.m.Pops cruises into 2019 at new venueThe Panama City Pops Orchestra will resume its interrupted season Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Gretchen Nelson Scott Fine Arts Center at Mosley High School.

ÂThe snowbird club is pretty strong, and itÂs exciting to get to be with them.ÂŽ The Rader family owned and operated the The Ocean Opry Â„ a 1,000-seat venue Â„ from August 1978 till June 2005,regularly hosting big names in country music like Mel Tillis and Johnny Cash,and performingtheir own country and comedy variety show. By the time they sold the Ocean Opry, three generations of Raders had performed on the stage. ÂFor 27 years, we were open at the Opry, so we have many supporters Â„ a lot from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois,ÂŽ Rader told the News Herald in 2017. ÂBack in the early days of the Opry, snowbirds would come for six months. Now they tend to wait till after Christmas.ÂŽ For more on Rader and his music, including video of Moonshine in action, visit his website, DennisRaderMusic.com.

ÂWe like to talk and get to know people,ÂŽ said Holly DuBose, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Dennis.ÂThatÂsone of the reasons we wanted to openthe shop, toget to know the community.ÂŽ The couple signed the lease Oct. 1, then Hurricane Michael hit Oct. 10. But aftergiving away holiday treatsduring Light Up St. Andrews, the restaurant is now officially open for business from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. ÂThey live in St. Andrews and, in fact, are old customers from when we had the shop Â„ super nice people and very excited,ÂŽ said Robbie Fehrenbach, who once owned the shop with Ellen Mapelsden. On Nov. 29, Mapelsden had posted on Facebook: ÂThey have a holiday village in the window and warm decorations, and for the first time in a long time I felt back at home.ÂŽ The Christmas decorations now have been swapped for ValentineÂs decor Â„ but all of the warmth remains. Holly even has plans to open for a Âsweetheart dinnerÂŽ Feb. 14. Book readings with local authors also are in the works. ÂFloriopolis has an area on the wall so everything up here is for sale. I want to help the community,ÂŽ Holly said. ÂI love these birdhouses; IÂve given them to all my family in Tennessee.ÂŽ TheDuBoses worked for the U.S. Navy, which initially brought them to the area. ButSt. Andrewsis home, where Holly and Dennisare members of St. Andrew Baptist Church, and welcomed a son in August. EvenHollyÂs mom, Sharon Johnson,was visiting this week, as she prepares to make the move from Tennessee. ÂReally, my vision when I bought the place was for people to eat here and feel homey,ÂŽ said Holly, who grew up on a farm. ÂI love to cook, and I know Southern cooking. I cooked for the Navy for six years.ÂŽ A full breakfast menu is served till 10:30 a.m., followed by lunch. ÂThe first day, we didnÂt sell one hamburger or one set of pancakes; everybody wanted omelets and Benedicts and sandwiches,ÂŽ Holly said. While the menu does feature traditional breakfasts, omelets and benedicts, a few have a Southern twist. The ÂSt. Andrews CrackerÂŽ Eggs Benedict features pulled pork, greens and hollandaise ona grilled corn muffin with two poached eggs, while the Meatloaf Eggs Benedict features bacon wrapped meatloaf, tomato and hollandaise on toasted sourdough with poached eggs. Behind the counter were loaves of sourdough, potato bread, whole wheat and panettone with nuts and dried fruit Â„ all prepared by Chef Chris Cherrington, who is known for making fresh crepes on site at The Market at St. Andrews for his Crepe and Cream business. ÂWe are making our own cinnamon raisin bread also served with honey butter,ÂŽ Holly added. ÂWaterÂs Edge is the coffee we went with, a local roaster, and you can come by here and buy a bag if you want.ÂŽ I sat on a bar stool and sipped on my latte Â„ with sugar-free hazelnut and almond milk Â„ tempted by the chocolate and blueberry muffins on the counter.

ÂOur sandwiches people are really loving,ÂŽ Holly said. ÂYesterday, we sold out of meatloaf and the homemade tomato basil.ÂŽ WednesdayÂs soup was a beef vegetable,HollyÂs motherÂs recipe, and the blue plate featured pulled pork. ÂWe also have Portside Chicken on the menu,ÂŽ said Holly, who pointed to the chalkboard fixture. Chicken Salad, whichhas been popular since Holly first became a customer after moving to the area more than 15years ago, remains on the menu. The menu is a ÂcollaborationÂŽ between Holly and Chris. ÂI told him what I wanted, but heÂs behind all the bread,ÂŽ she said. ÂThe Beck Street Salad Â„ thatÂs a Christmas salad like when grandma goes to church for something special,a broccoli salad with cauliflower, red pepper, green peppers, raisins and a sweet sauce. A lot of my stuff comes from church cookbooks.ÂŽ Beck Street Salad is just one of the sides, ranging from baked mac and cheese to potato salad, cole slaw and fresh vegetables. ÂItÂs all homemade and we make it small batches,ÂŽ Holly added. Build Your Own Sandwich (grilled or cold) or go for a Specialty Â„ Grilled Smoked Gouda Pimento Cheese, Reuben, Rachel, Club or Cheeseburger. ÂShe mentioned they had grilled pimento cheese on the menu before and I just like that smokiness,ÂŽ Chris said. I decided to build my own grilled sandwich with oven roasted turkeyandmelted Swiss on whole grain wheat bread with a side salad served with a Vidalia onion dressing. The warm bread definitely brought everything together, even as it came apart, and for a moment all conversation ceased while I found comfort in my sandwich, surroundings and beefy vegetable soup. ÂThis is really going to be nice Â„not typical, not corporate or fast food Â„but homemade and laid back,ÂŽ said server Karen Friend. ÂPeople are absolutely going to fall in love.ÂŽ Friend, originally from Rhode Island,moved to the area from West Palm Beach in February 2018, Âbecause I was sick of hurricanes.ÂŽ Hurricane Michael was her ninth hurricane and seventh in Florida in 15 years. ÂThings will get fixed, and it will be better,ÂŽ said Friend, whoserved up plenty ofhope and compassion, adding, ÂIÂve never seen anything like this.ÂŽ Server and barista Teresa Rein, whowas training behind the coffee bar Wednesday, also plans to stay in St. Andrews after her house is repaired.

But thanks to a partnership with the Majestic Beach Resort in Panama City Beach, the MartinÂs annual ÂPresentsÂŽ series featuring national and international acts will still take place this year.The series starts in the MajesticÂs ballroom on Friday, Jan. 18, with The Kingston Trio presenting its ÂKeep the Music PlayingÂŽ tour. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. ÂAfter I got over the shock and depression of the storm, I began to really focus on the future of the Martin,ÂŽ said Barbara McMinis, the theaterÂs director.ÂWe had already begun selling tickets in August, and it was looking like a great upcoming season. Because we only seat 470, we began looking around Panama City Beach at some of the big resorts. We were incredibly lucky that the Majestic was open for all of our dates, including our ValentineÂs Day special event and The Mersey Beatles.We have set it up as close to the floor plan of the Martin as we could and have brought in The Martin moves to the Majestic BEACH INSIDERThe Kingston Trio presents its ÂKeep the Music PlayingÂ tour on Friday, Jan. 18, at the Majestic Beach Resort, part of the Martin TheatreÂs ongoing ÂPresentsÂ series.

The album remained on the chart for four years andwascertified gold on Jan. 19, 1961 Â„ 58 years ago this week. Fans of the legendary folk trio canrediscover their timeless musicmarking the groupÂs anniversary byperforming many of their best-loved songs. All three current members Â„ Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Bob Haworth Â„ have intrinsic links to and experience with the original group: Marvin is the adopted son of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor; Gorelangton, a close friend since boyhood, is one of the few musicians outside the original trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Haworthperformed with the original Trio for periods between 1985-1999 when Reynolds was unable to tour.

| Friday, January 18, 2019 E19 THE ARTISTÂS TOUCHBy Tony Simmonstsimmons@pcnh.com @PCNHTonySPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ Artist Lisa Dubreuil climbed into a hydraulic lift and rose 20 feet inside the atrium of a new home under construction in Bid-A-Wee recently, equipped with a bucket of coral, a special adhesive and a vision of mermaids wrapped in coral. She has been adding sashes, tiaras and other decorative pieces to four 5-foot-tall wooden mermaids on the wall for her friend and neighbor Mary Ellen Rice. The mermaids were salvaged from a tavern in south Florida and provided to the Rice project by Design Salvage of Panama City, like much of the houseÂs details.Tongueand-groove boards used in the entry hall and upstairs room came from a tiny beach house that once occupied this lot. The wooden panels leading up the stairs are layered with salvaged picture frames. And the master bedroom features Italian marble flooringsaved from another buildingÂs demolition. ÂI feel our project is very unique because much of the house are refurbished items,ÂŽ Rice said as workersbuzzed about the place and her husband, Don, supervised. ÂThey have come out of massive mansions in south Florida.ÂŽ Like her friend, Dubreuil values salvaging and repurposing objects for her art. She has created a piece using an antique metal ceiling tile for a base that will adorn the entry hall of the house, and another piece featuring a chambered nautilus was mounted on glass. Rice said she and Dubreuil became friends because, soon after moving to the area, Rice was impressed by a garden party she saw going on anddecided she needed to know the hostess. ÂI told her we could either be friends or I was going to stalk her,ÂŽ Rice laughed. Dubreuil said she was up on the lift because her friend asked her to take a look around the house and do something to spruce up her new mermaids. ÂThey needed something a little bit more pizazzy, so I suggested to Mary Ellen that we should put some coral on,ÂŽ Dubreuil said. ÂJust to bring out a little bit more of the Florida home. I think theyÂve turned out great.ÂŽ About 20 different species of coral go into a large installation like this one, she said, with names like birdÂs nest, stag horn, catÂs paw and more. The coral comes from an importer in South Florida, who gets it from the South Pacific where shipping channels are being dredged. The species are not considered to be endangered and must be approved for import byfive different customs groups, Dubreuil said. ÂI actually go there (to the warehouse) and pick out what I want, because at this point in time I know what pieces work for my artwork,ÂŽ Dubreuil said. ÂIÂm digging through bins of coral so thereÂs no waste. ... My hands are in it from the beginning to the end.ÂŽ Large, heavy pieces arenÂt appropriate for her designs, she added. Dubreuil began working with coral and making art several years ago, after a successful career owning and running retail stores. She doesnÂt advertise her work, and she has no online presence. She does take her art to festivals and exhibitions, and word somehow spreads among those who might need her services. ÂIt is extremely interesting seeing her work,ÂŽ Rice said. ÂThe artist searches for the appropriate piece that fits.She will hold the one piece of coral for 15 minutes till it dries.ÂŽ Rice noted that the work isnÂt easy on Dubreuil, whose hands are often scraped raw while sorting the shells. ÂItÂs a labor of love,ÂŽ Dubreuil said, sort of waving offRiceÂs mention of her pain or exertion. ÂI lovewhat I do.ÂŽCoral artist gives mermaids ÂpizazzÂArtist Lisa Dubreuil attaches coral to a set of wooden mermaids on the upper wall of a house under construction in Panama City Beach.

| Friday, January 18, 2019 E21 LIQUID DREAM FISHING TEAMThis upcoming tournament season is going to be a lot different from the pasttwo years for us, because ofthe hurricane. The last two years, we averaged six toeight redfish tournaments out of Panama City, but not anymore. As of right now, weÂre going to havethree tournaments out of Panama City, and I am working with the Power Pole Pro series to get them to come to Panama City in April. Besides the travel and money it saves for us, it will bring 60 to 100 teams to Panama City for roughly a week. That is 120 to 200 people spending money herefor food, lodging, gas, tackle, etc. Â„and thatÂs not including family members who will show up to support. It will also be nationally televised, since itÂs a national tournament and a qualifier for the Redfish World Series. Jake and I agree we need to be on the water as much as possible learning the changes to the environment and bottom from the hurricane, so we can compete here in April. The struggle is, my house was a complete loss and IÂm in the middle of house and land demolition, on top of all the paperwork and headaches that come with it. We found a couple hours to sneak away this past Sunday to take a breather from the world, do the thing we love to together, and to explore some areas and techniques. Since we were taking JakeÂs boat and his house is in the Pretty Bayou community, we used the Pretty Bayou ramp and fished North/West Bay. Those of you who regularly read my articles or follow my Instagram and Facebook, you have learned our strongest areas are not North Bay or West Bay. North Bay I have found to be very hit or miss for reds; either they are big, small, or nothing. West Bay you can pick a big one here or there but normally all cookie cutter 3and 4-pound reds. ThatÂs why Jake and I spend most of our time at Shell Island, Crooked Island or East Bay, not to mention I grew up on East Bay. So, if we want to qualify for the Redfish World Series and compete with the best in the nation on national TV, we have roughly two months to get our ducks in a row and to make sure we are at our best. That is in between fishing the other series in the Panhandle and Louisiana. We launched at Pretty Bayou Ramp and chose to run across the bay and fish around Duck Pond and try to learn that area, so we have choices come tournament time. The last time we fished Duck Pond a couple of weeks ago, we caught legal trout and rat reds. When we arrived, Ithrew a stick bait and Jake was throwing a paddle tail. Jake deployed the trolling motor, hit the forward button Â„and nothing. I checked the wiring at the motor and the controller while Jake checked battery connections and the battery switch. All were hooked up correctly and on; in fact the battery switch was never turned off from last time and the batteries ran down. So plan B: We find the current, wind and drift fish. There was no wind and it was a strong incoming tide. We noticed birds diving at the flat between Duck Pond and the point into West Bay. We moved to the flat with the birds and let the current carry us down the flat while fan casting. Jake cast into some mullet and his rod bowed; he landed a lower slot. Jake cast over there again and got another lower slot. Apparently, the reds wanted a paddle tail, but I was too stubborn to change. Jake threw out the other side of the boat to deeper water, and hooked up with a middle slot red. We spent a total of two hours out that afternoon fishing. Jake caught four or five reds on that paddle tail, and I watched, bringing home the skunk using a stick bait. We didnÂt spend a lot of time and had some technical difficulties, but still the same result as always. Either big, small or nothing. As Jake and I always say when referring to the North Bay system: North Bay Â„ No Way. Anthony ÂAJÂŽ Watson shares his fishing adventures each week in the Entertainer.Fish in North Bay? No way.

E24 Friday, January 18, 2019 | MOVIETOWN MOVIE CLUBEach week, locals Cole Schneider and Matt Greene share their different takes on new movies out in area theaters. For podcasts and more, visit MovietownMovieClub.com Matt: ÂThe UpsideÂ strikes balance ÂThe UpsideÂŽ is an apt title; for every negative Âdownside,ÂŽ there is also a positive ÂupsideÂŽ to counter it. For every lame joke, thereÂs one that hits. For every forced emotion, thereÂs genuine pathos around the corner. For each subpar performance, thereÂs a Nicole Kidman or Bryan Cranston to carry the scene. And for all the saccharine levels of corn, thereÂs an effective hit of sweetness stirred by the chemistry between characters. ItÂs a substantially passable little film that just barely works in each way that it needs to. Based on the true unusual pairing of a released convict (Kevin Hart) hired to care for a rich quadriplegic (Cranston), itÂs what we expect from adult-centric comedy-dramas, minus the use of cheap and ineffective montages that are such a crutch for most meet-cute friendship films. Instead, it takes time to slow down in multiple moments to let the characters and scenes really breathe. Cranston is expectedly good, but Hart surprises in a more subdued role than we normally see from him while still getting his moments to blow-up, recalling Seth RogenÂs turn in 50/50. When itÂs funny, itÂs very funny (the catheter scene is a standout), while the Âovercoming limitationsÂŽ message and performances lead to a true affection for this odd couple. The platitudes are lame and aplenty. The characters make unnatural leaps to fulfill what the script needs at each moment. The director employs suspect film tropes to no purpose (why do filmmakers insist framing their movies with a late-story scene at the beginning of their movie?). Still, genuine feel-good, crowd-pleaser movies are rare these days, so what the heck. Gimme the downsides if they accompany comedy and heart this satisfying.Rating: out of Cole: ÂUpsideÂÂ„ 2019can only get better HollywoodÂs latest twohour cliche, ÂThe Upside,ÂŽ follows a struggling black parolee who gets a job taking care of a rich white quadriplegic and then Â„ youÂll never guess it Â„ an unlikely friendship starts to blossom between the pair. Barf. ÂThe UpsideÂŽ is the first movie I saw in 2019 and itÂs very unlikely IÂll see anything as mawkish the rest of the year. It canÂt be overstated just how dumb this story is inherently, but whatÂs really bone-headed is how eagerly it doubles down on its stupidity in every scene and for every character. Here is a movie that is so vapid it canÂt even exist as a marginally offensive commentary on class, much less as an eye-rolling take on race. ÂThe UpsideÂŽ is so stereotypical in its Ârich white guys and poor black guys can be great friendsÂŽ credo that itÂs mysteriously able to sidestep what should be reasonable charges of classism and racism. That this isnÂt more offensive is a testament to its sheer unremarkability. IÂll say this on behalf on ÂThe UpsideÂŽ though: While the talented trio of Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, and Nicole Kidman are helpless to elevate their characters, Hart comes the closest to transcending his written role. HeÂs funny and vulnerable throughout, but itÂs all such a futile attempt. ÂThe UpsideÂŽ is lazy and maudlin, which is the worst kind of Hollywood mediocrity. WeÂre entering the dead time of the year in between the big Christmas releases and the upcoming summer fare, but weÂre not wrong to demand better than ÂThe Upside.ÂŽRating: out of ÂThe UpsideÂ lls downtime between blockbusters Kevin Hart, left, and Bryan Cranston star in ÂThe Upside.ÂŽ [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO]

Friday, January 18, 2019 | The News Herald | Page 7 Help Your Student Succeed in School: Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early Regular school attendance is a big issue in schools across the nation. Through a variety of studies and research, it had been made clear that good attendance is essential to academic success. Far too many students are at risk academically because they are chronically absent. Chronic absence is described as missing 10 percent of the school year, which is about 18 days. The result is the same whether the absences are excused or unexcused gaps in achievement. If this continues, the gaps begin to compound. In Bay County, more than 300,000 days of instruction are lost each school year due to student absences. We have pledged to raise awareness about the value of regular school attendance and focus on reducing chronic absenteeism beginning this year and continuing into the future. Please join us in an initiative to encourage good attendance and advance student success by reducing chronic absences. Attendance matters!Did you know? graders dropping out and eventually, employees who have poor attendance at work. What are Bay District Schools educators and staff are doing to improve absenteeism? parents about the importance of regular attendance. issues and work with families to make improvements. What can parents do to support the initiative? attendance and grades. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about schooland about themselves. We urge parents to start building a healthy attendance habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and eventually, on the job. Bay District Schools does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability or marital status in its educational programs, services or activities, or in its hiring or employment practices. e district also provides equal access to its facilities to the Boy Scouts and other patriotic youth groups, as required by the Boys Scout of America Equal Access Act.
