Schools: We don’t condone walkouts

GWINNETT COUNTY GUBERNATORIAL FORUM
BY TREVOR MCNABOE email@example.com
Gwinnett County Public Schools is preparing for the highly publicized National School Walkout Day set to take place Wednesday in remembrance of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla. In a statement released by the county, officials said they do not condone students walking out during the school day. “We believe the student walkout, however well-intended, could negatively impact our ability to meet our primary responsibility,” the statement said. “Classroom learning will be affected if students miss instructional time, and the safety of students could be compromised if they leave class or campus without permission.” The county said the decision is not about the cause, but for what is best for students in maintaining a safe and orderly school environment. “Gwinnett County Public Schools See WALKOUTS, Page 5A
Shafer faces harassment accusation Lobbyist files suit vs. lt. governor candidate BY CURT YEOMANS firstname.lastname@example.org
Sen. David Shafer, R-Duluth, is fighting allegations that he sexually harassed a lobbyist for several years, calling the accusations false and vowing to fight the claims made against him. The lobbyist reportedly accused Shafer, who is the leading David Shafer Republican candidate in the lieutenant governor’s race, of harassing her as early as 2002, according to the FOX 5 Atlanta I-Team. The lobbyist reportedly filed a complaint with the Secretary of the Senate’s office Tuesday — the day after Shafer qualified as a candidate for lieutenant governor. Shafer said the accusation was politically motivated and called his accuser a “15-minute, attention-seeking wannabe” who was “trying to settle an old score.” “For the better part of 20 years, my family and I have devoted ourselves to serving the people of Georgia, but there is an ugly and revolting underbelly of

Transportation talk Congestion a key topic at GOP candidate discussion BY CURT YEOMANS
With about a half-dozen candidates seeking the Republican nomination for governor, it is perhaps no surprise that they had a variety of suggestions for dealing with transportation during a forum at Norcross High School on Saturday night. The transportation question came up early during the forum, which was hosted by the Gwinnett Republican Party. It’s not without reason that the issue quickly emerged. The county government has been looking at the issue for the past few years, and it is working on a transit develop-

Funding the future
Providence Christian STEM program named one of best in the nation
BY TREVOR MCNABOE trevor.mcnaboe @gwinnettdailypost.com
Providence Christian Academy’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics program in five years has gone from a startup to one of the nation’s elite. Recently, the Lilburnbased Christian school was announced as one of 134 schools across the nation, and the only private school in the state of Georgia, to be named a Distinguished School by Project Lead the Way. The inception of the program began five years ago with Randy Cailor suggesting they start teaching students about STEM. “We’ve loved the mission of this school and it was always about the idea of giving back to the next generation of students,” said Cailor. “I have always been around education, but I was an engineer.” Cailor, the father of two daughters who graduated from Providence, had more than 20 years of experience at a structural engineering firm. He toyed with the idea of teaching a business course or a few engineering classes, but he thought a full course program would be the best option. “I started researching what would be the best options as I was making the transition from the business world to teaching,” Cailor said. “I found Project Lead the Way and started taking part of the curriculum they were doing and tailoring it to what worked best for us here at Providence.” Since Providence is a private school and receives

no state funding, everything it needs for the STEM program has to come directly from parental and alumni donations. “Everything you see in this room has been donated one way or another — it’s been amazing,” Cailor said. “Everybody has bought into our vision and made this a program.” Students who are part of the STEM program take classes as an elective. The way Providence is structured requires students to take a religion class as one of their electives, limiting the amount of free electives students can choose. Despite that requirement, Cailor says about 30 percent of the school is involved in STEM courses. A typical pathway in the STEM program begins with
STEM I, known as Intro to Engineering Design. During the course, freshmen and sophomores get exposed to the basic design process that comes with engineering. STEM II: Principles of Engineering is the second foundational course for students in 10th and 11th grades. “Both these courses provide the basic learning that will set students up for more in-depth learning in the upper level courses,” Cailor said. “STEM II gives you a variety of topics like mechanisms, kinematics and statics.” The program diverges in the third course allowing students to get experience in construction, engineering and architecture or anatomy and human body systems.
Students who begin the program as freshmen are allowed to take a capstone course, which challenges students to take a real-world problem and come up with a solution. Seniors Morgen Feldhan and Robert Fain are in the middle of their capstone project. Feldhan, who plans to attend Georgia Tech, has been designing a scarf for people with asthma. “In the winter it’s hard to be in the cold, and exercising is especially difficult,” Feldhan said. “There wasn’t any solution out there that seemed appealing to people, so I decided to design something that could help.” The scarf also features a breathing mask embedded into the fabric, allowing the wearer to stay warm while

not impeding their breathing. Fain’s senior project involves helping medical companies track inventory on supplies they send to hospitals. “A lot of companies aren’t very organized and inventory isn’t kept up well,” Fain said. “I found in my research that anywhere from 4 to 6 percent of revenue is lost to preventable issues.” Fain said he created a barcode tracking system as well as an inventory spreadsheet that allows medical suppliers to see the amount of supplies they have for a certain order.
Feldhan said her interest in STEM began in middle school and is something that she is looking to make a career out of. Fain saw STEM as an opportunity to learn while being able to see tangible results. “I felt like I was doing something that was benefiting me and I could see an end to it,” Fain said. Both seniors will compete in the school’s STEM exposition on April 24 in front of dozens of judges. Support and activities like the exposition set Providence apart from other schools, Cailor said. “People have bought into this program,” he said. “We’ve had support both financially and from the administration, and now we’re starting to see the results.”

Qualifying shows promise of big election battle By Curt Yeomans
With candidate qualifying for this year’s election in the books, voters now have a clear picture of who their options are when they go to the polls for the May 22 primary election and the general election in November. A total of 26 seats will appear on primary ballots in Gwinnett in May. In the cases of some seats, only one party has a contested primary, but other seats will have contested primaries for both parties. The contests start at the top of state government, with an open governor’s seat that has attracted seven Republicans, two Democrats, a Libertarian and an independent candidate. Other high ranking seats, including lieutenant governor and secretary of state, feature open seats with several candidates. Local party leaders told the Daily Post this week that they are pleased with how qualifying was going. As Gwinnett Republican Party Chairman Mike Seigle discussed the Republican candidates for local offices Thursday, he highlighted some of the diversity in the party’s field of candidates for local offices. One claim that political observers and Democrats have made is that the growing diversity in Gwinnett would turn the county blue. It’s a contention Seigle disagrees with. Among the Republican candidates who have chosen to run for political offices this year are candidates who were born in the Congo, India and China, he said. “Our demise has been exaggerated a little bit,” Seigle said. “This is going to be a fun year.” But Gwinnett Democratic Party Chairman Gabe Okoye said Republicans should not get too confident about their chances in this year’s elections. “We’re ready to do battle,” Okoye said Thursday. Two wild-card races at the local level will be the open races for school board Districts 2 and 4. With no incumbents running, each seat attracted two Republicans and two Democrats who will face off in the May 22 primary election. In the District 2 race, Stephen Knudsen and Carol Cynthia Ranft will face off in the Republican primary while Wandy Taylor and Donald May face each other in the Democratic primary. In the District 4 race, Charles “Chuck” Studebaker and Randall Lee are running against each other in the Republican primary while Everton Blair and Mark Williams will face each other in the Democratic primary.
Candidates listed with the Secretary of State’s Office as having qualified to run for elected seats this week include: Governor Republicans: Casey Cagle, Hunter Hill, Brian Kemp, Clay Tippins, Michael Williams, Marc Alan Urbach, Eddie Hayes Democrats: Stacey Abrams, Stacey Evans Libertarians: Ted Metz Independents: Larry E. Odom Lieutenant Governor Republicans: David Shafer, Geoff Duncan, Rick Jeffares Democrats: Triana ArnoldJames, Sarah Riggs Amico Secretary of State Republicans: Buzz Brockway, Brad Raffensperger, David Belle Isle, Josh McKoon Democrats: John Barrow, Rakeim “RJ” Hadley, Dee Dawkins-Haigler Libertarians: Smythe Duval Attorney General Republicans: Chris Carr (I) Democrats: Charlie Bailey Commissioner of Agriculture Republicans: Gary Black Democrats: Fred Swann Commissioner of Insurance Republicans: Jay Florence, Jim Beck, Tracy Jordan Democrats: Cindy Zeldin, Janice Laws Libertarians: Donnie Foster Commissioner of Labor Republicans: Mark Butler Democrats: Fred Quinn, Richard Keatley State School Superintendent Republicans: John Barge, Richard Woods (I), Sonia Francis-Rolle Democrats: Sid Chapman, Otha E.

Meanwhile, Gwinnett County Commissioners Lynette Howard and John Heard, both Republicans, each have two Democrats lining up to face them. In commission District 2, Ben Ku and Desmond Nembhard will face each other in the Democratic primary for a chance to face Howard in the general election. In commission District 4, Democrats Marlene Fosque and Greg McKeithen will compete in the primary for a shot at facing Heard in November.

Solicitor General Rosanna Szabo, a Republican, will face Democratic challenger Brian Whiteside in November. In the state legislative races, open seats tended to attract the largest fields for the most part. The open House District 97 race in the Duluth and Suwanee area attracted eight candidates, including Republicans Bonnie Rich, Kipper Tabb, Louis Tseng, Judson McClure, Indran Krishnan and Scott Lecraw, as well as Democrats Aisha Yaqoob and Wayne Slear. After Tabb qualified Wednesday, the pastor said he would continue the “commitment to supporting stellar schools” by the seat’s current occupant, Rep.

protect our families from growing threats like the opioid and drug epidemics and support our law enforcement and first responders in their efforts to keep us safe,” Tabb said in a statement. “And I will fight hard to strengthen the family and preserve the conservative principles we hold dear.” The House District 102 race in the Lawrenceville and Suwanee area also attracted a large number of candidates — six in all, including Republicans Paula Hastings, Zach Procter and Kellie Pollard Austin, as well as Democrats Gregg Kennard and Tony Scalzitti.

includes former state Rep. Donna Sheldon, Patrick Batubenge and Pregnancy Resource Center Executive Director Robin Mauck. As she qualified Monday, Sheldon issued a formal announcement that she was running for the seat. She previously served in the state House of Representatives from 2003 until 2013. “During my time in the State House, I had a consistent and proven record of leading on the issues important to our community,” Sheldon said in a statement. “I’m ready to do the same again. With the issues we face in regards to education, public safety, health care, transportation and ensuring prosperity for all of our families, we simply cannot afford a radical or ineffective representative.” Meanwhile, Mauck posted on Facebook that
“God has directed my path somewhere I never dreamed it would go. This doesn’t change my current position but just adds on a new layer. Through God’s clear leading and full support of my Family, Board and Staff, I am happy to announce I have qualified to run for State House Representative, District 105.” McLeod was part of a group of Democratic women who went to the state Capitol Tuesday to qualify for legislative seats from Gwinnett. The other women were Beth Moore (House District 95), Jasmine Clark (House District 108), Shelly Hutchinson (House District 107), Andrea Polk (House District 104), Aisha Yaqoob (House District 97), Zahra Karinshak (Senate District 48) and Tamara Johnson Shealey (Senate District 40). “I am on the ballot and I shared today with seven other phenomenal women running for elected office,” McLeod said in an email to supporters afterwards. Some Democrats in the Gwinnett legislative delegation — Sen. Steve Henson and state Reps. Scott Holcomb, Karen Bennett and Brenda Lopez — are facing challengers from within their own parties. In all, 19 of the 25 seats that are at least partially in Gwinnett will be contested at some point this year. The only legislators from the Gwinnett delegation who won’t face opponents are state Reps. Darshun Kendrick, Pedro Marin, David Clark, Dewey McClain, Timothy Barr and Brett Harrell, who did not have opponents listed on the Secretary of State’s website. On the judicial front, three open seats, including two on the Gwinnett County Superior Court bench and one of the Gwinnett County State Court bench, drew a combined 10 candidates. Half of them — Veronica Cope, Jon Setzer, John R. Burdges, Jason Park and Tracey Mason — are seeking Superior Court Judge Tom Davis’ seat. All judicial races are nonpartisan so the winner of the May 22 election for each of those seats will win the office. Two candidates, Lance W. Tyler and Ronda Colvin Leary, are running to fill the State Court vacancy that was created by Judge Joseph C. Iannazzone’s decision to not run again. After he qualified, Tyler, who is an local attorney and former Gwinnett sheriff’s deputy, praised Iannazzone after he qualified to run for the seat. “Judge Iannazzone has worked hard for Gwinnett County and deserves our gratitude,” he said. “I’ll continue that service of hard work and will continue doing what is right in each case for every victim and every defendant.” Meanwhile, all three of Gwinnett’s members of the U.S. House, Reps. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., Rob Woodall and Jody Hice, R-Ga., will face re-election challenges from within their own parties as well as from the opposing party.

4A • Sunday, March 11, 2018 To Your Good Health
‘Perfect diet’ is elusive DEAR DR. ROACH: In a recent column, you recommended “a diet based mostly on plants and legumes, with nuts, some fruits, whole grains and almost no refined sugars and starches.” By “some fruits,” are you suggesting not eating certain fruits, or just a limited amount of fruit overall? I ask because my cardiologist has recommended an Atkins-type diet with a heavy emphasis on meat — with full fat — while limiting carbs and not eating fruit, because it turns to sugar, he claimed. I prefer a diet of fruit and vegetables, with a limited amount of meat and few carbs. I do love fish and shrimp. My wife can’t tolerate sugar, so I never have sugar or sweets of any kind. I never add sugar or sweeteners of any kind to any food or beverage. I’m 70 years old and have had a heart catheterization, which indicated clean, clear arteries. However, I have weight gain. I prefer a physically active lifestyle and canoe on lakes quite often three seasons of the year for several hours each time. Please clarify the “some fruits” term, and also what do you think about cutting out fruit entirely, as my cardiologist recommended? I’m concerned that that would lead to serious constipation, which I don’t experience when I have enough fruit in my diet. — G.H. ANSWER: There is no agreement on the “best” type of diet, and my use of “some fruits” reflected some current thinking that excess amounts of fruit may not be optimally healthy. Fruits indeed are high in sugar. Although not all fruits are the same, most have fiber, which slows down sugar absorption, while others can be absorbed more quickly. Most data show that the sugars found naturally in fruits have much less (if any) adverse effect on risk of heart disease, and in people with diabetes, two to four servings of fruit do not seem to adversely affect blood sugar. However, most people do not eat enough fruit, so I don’t want to advise against fruit eating: It’s fruit juices and sweetened fruit products that I recommend against consuming in other than modest amounts. Although there is good evidence that a high-protein, high-fat diet of the type you describe helps in short-term and medium-term weight loss, I do not recommend large amounts of the saturated fat found in most farmraised meat. Again, the data are controversial, with one recent review suggesting little or no harm from saturated fat, but the preponderance of the evidence still is concerning, and I think the diet you prefer, of vegetables, fish and fruit, is likely to be healthier in the long term.

•From Page 1A Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, Sen. Michael WIlliams, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, former state Sen. Hunter Hill, businessman Clay Tippins and former Norcross High School teacher Marc Alan Urbach. In addition to transportation, the candidates also weighed in on criminal justice, tax breaks for big corporations such as Amazon, off-shore drilling, due process and property rights. In Gwinnett, where traffic congestion is a major issue and a referendum on expanding transit may appear on the November ballot, the issue of how people get around could be a key issue, though. Tippins pointed to metro Atlanta’s lack of an outer loop highway, beyond Interstate 285, as one problem for the region. “We could do an outer bypass,” he said. “We could have trucking companies and logistics companies pay every time they drive down that road. They’d be happy to do that (because) they’d make more money not having to waste time sitting in traffic.” Meanwhile, Cagle highlighted the 10-year transportation strategic plan that is part of his platform. That includes the possibility of reversible lanes on the interstates. “I’m in Hall County, I go to Atlanta every morning,” Cagle said. “In that time period, there is the most amount of conges-

tion that exists, but when I look across the median, I see that there is a lot of capacity there. Any other state that has this kind of congestion would be using the reversible lane concept that allows movable barriers.” Urbach said he would launch an investigation into the Interstate 85 bridge collapse. He also said there needs to be a focus on moving all Georgians around, not just those who live in metro Atlanta. “We could do a highspeed bullet train from connecting the following cities of Macon, Columbus, Augusta back to Atlanta,” he said. The forum gave candidates the opportunity to highlight some of their proposals, such as Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s
plan for an illegal immigrant database, which he unveiled earlier in the week. “Talking to state law enforcement officials and prosecutors, this is something that had been a challenge for them,” Kemp said. “Not knowing who these people are, they commit a crime, get bailed out, go home, come back under another identity, but this database will allow us to work with the feds, with state leaders, with our partners at the local level, and give law enforcement the tools they need.” Williams said the state needs to do away with laws and restrictions that prohibit economic development, such as certificates of need for hospitals and a three-tier system that deals with alcohol in the state. “We need to eliminate
our state income tax so that we can create an environment here in Georgia where small businesses thrive,” Williams said. “That’s what’s going to make Georgia great for everyone.” The forum did have its share of fireworks and at times felt like a war of words between Cagle and Williams, two candidates from Gwinnett County’s backyard. Williams went after Cagle on who the lieutenant governor supported for president, his career in state government and the status of bills Williams has filed. “I’m tired of lying politicians and politicians who take credit for stuff they didn’t do,” Williams said. In response, Cagle said, “I don’t know if it’s really worth my time (to respond).”
Fair •From Page 1A Wozniak talked to Salmon about what the issues could mean, and what adjustments could be done to fix the problem. “It was good to see the video illustration of what the scan showed,” Salmon said. “It was great because literally where they pinpointed are kind of the places where I’ve needed some adjustments … I actually want to schedule an appointment to see their doctor.” Salmon was one of about 400 people who attended the first of four community health fairs that Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation, Live Healthy Gwinnett and the Daily Post are co-hosting around the county this year. About 60 vendors participated as well, talking with attendees about various health issues, including spinal cords, healthy eating, cardiovascular health, women’s health and issues facing senior citizens. Gwinnett County Department of Community Services Outreach Manager Lindsey Jorstad said organizers were pleased with the turnout for the inaugural health fair. There were people lined up at the door waiting to get in to the health fair when it opened Saturday morning,

she said. “I think the promotion of the event went very, very well,” Jorstad said. “The partnership between the Daily Post, Live Healthy Gwinnett and Parks and Rec, we’ve really use a lot of the outlets to get the word out and I think the attendance really showed that the Lawrenceville community really wants these resources.” Attendees had the option to visit vendors at their booths during the fair, or to mix in some brief programs on health issues as well. Some of the programs focused on healthy eating, keeping a person’s mind sharp, women’s health issues, knowing what to ask a doctor about and general health tips. A blood drive was also held in conjunction with
the health fair. “(The goal is) to get people to eat right, be healthy and continue to get checked by your healthcare providers,” Daily Post Director of Events Noreen Brantner said. Snellville resident Diana Carrier said the fair was a “great idea” after she visited a table for Saladmaster, a company whose products can be used to make different foods, including cakes, out of vegetables. Carrier said she attended the fair to get general information about health issues she should be on the lookout for, as well as what she can do to stay healthy. “I did get information on (Live Healthy Gwinnett) with all of the items and opportunities here,” she said. “I was excited to see that.”
Wozniak said there was a steady flow of attendees coming by to see her about getting a free spinal scan and that she was continually busy throughout the fair as a result. One of the things that Wozniak said she was impressed by was the diversity of who was attending the fair. “I expected more older people than younger but it was a decent mix age-wise, which is good,” she said. “We like a variety of people … I’m all about being proactive with your health. If you’re not investing in your health, it’s going to be getting away from you, so I think one of the coolest things was seeing people in their 20’s getting checked to make sure things were functioning well instead of waiting until things start falling apart. “This is a good place to do that.” The remaining Gwinnett Community Health Fairs will be held May 5 at the George Pierce Park Recreation Center in Suwanee, Aug. 18 at the Bogan Park Recreation Center in Buford and Nov. 10 at Lucky shoals Park Recreation Center in Norcross. Additional information about each health fair, including lists of vendors and schedules of programs, will be posted at www. scnievents.com/healthfairs.

The school district said it stands by its decision. “If a school or school district approves or condones a walkout by
students in the present situation, it must take the same position with any and all student groups that want to take similar action in the future, regardless of the cause being promoted,” GCPS said in a letter. “A public school that is selective in allowing certain walkouts but not others could face legal action for enforcing school rules inconsistently based on speech, message or cause, a potential First Amendment violation. If it sets aside enforcement of school rules for one group of students who participate in a walkout, the school creates a precedent that will dictate how other such activities must be handled.”
politics, and this deceitful allegation is an example of that,” he said in a statement sent to the Daily Post. “This false complaint is about politics, not the truth and that’s why it is no coincidence that it was filed the day after I qualified to run for lieutenant governor.” Officials at the Secretary of the Senate’s office said they could not confirm whether an allegation had been filed because Senate rules stipulate complaints are handled confidentially, but Shafer’s campaign acknowledged the complaint. The Senate’s process of dealing with complaints involves the Senate Ethics Committee holding a hearing to determine the truth of the allegations. The General Assembly’s sexual harassment policies were expanded last month to include interactions between legislators and lobbyists. Shafer said he would welcome any Senate ethics investigation that looked into the accusation and will cooperate fully with investigators. The TV station also reported the lobbyist accused Shafer of telling her in 2011 “you owe me” and “show me your boobs” after he helped her get a bill passed. Shafer is also accused in the complaint of asking the lobbyist who she was sleeping with, whether she had undergone breast augmentation surgery and telling her that he wanted to “spoon naked. I just want to see you naked,” according to FOX 5 Atlanta. The lobbyist’s attorney, Bruce Harvey, told FOX 5 Atlanta that the accusation focused on “the exchange, the potential exchange of political influence for sexual favors” and called the alleged actions “just pure political thuggery.” Harvey could not be immediately reached by the Daily Post for comment. The senator’s campaign released a barrage of statements in support of Shafer while simultaneously criticizing the lobbyist. Those statements include affidavits from Shafer’s longtime administrative assistant, Anna Boggs, his former chief of staff Jeremy Collins and Michael Shelnutt, whom the campaign identified as a former colleague of the lobbyist. Boggs said the lobbyist came by Shafer’s office in 2003 to set up a meeting with him, but that the senator had told her to not schedule any meeting between him and the lobbyist without arranging for a staff member to also be present. “Whenever (the lobbyist) would meet with Senator Shafer, I would attend the meeting,” Boggs said in her affidavit. “I do not specifically remember the subject matter of Senator Shafer’s meetings with (the lobbyist) other than they always related to pending legislation. Senator Shafer was always respectful and professional to (the lobbyist), as he was to every visitor. “The idea that Senator Shafer ‘harassed’ (the lobbyist) is ridiculous. For the entire time I worked for him, he sought to minimize his contact with her and avoid being alone with her.” Collins said in his affidavit that while he was Shafer’s chief of staff from 2013-15, he suggested the then-Senate President Pro Tempore have an open
door policy but to avoid meeting with the lobbyist because of a poor reputation among people in state government. The former chief of staff said he did not recall Shafer meeting with the lobbyist during his time working with the senator. Collins also said Shafer’s policy of having staff members present for meetings eventually extended beyond the lobbyist. “Sen. Shafer seldom met with anyone alone,” he said. “He almost always had a staff member with him, and that staff member was usually me.” Meanwhile, Shelnutt said he has known Shafer and the lobbyist since 1994, when they worked in Georgia politics. Shelnutt worked for the state GOP at the time, and Shafer was then-Republican gubernatorial candidate Guy Millner’s campaign manager. He said Shafer and the lobbyist were both single at the time and had dated each other. Shelnutt said he renewed his acquaintances with the lobbyist and Shafer 12 years later when he became a lobbyist himself. He said he remembered the lobbyist trying to set up meetings with Shafer years later when he was in the Senate. “I recall one incident when (the lobbyist) came to Shafer’s office and invited him to dinner, saying they had not had dinner in years and she wanted to have dinner with him,” Shelnutt said. “Shafer brushed off the invitation.” Boggs, Collins and Shelnutt each said in their respective affidavits that they believed the accusations against Shafer are false. Cynthia Garst, another colleague of Shafer and the lobbyist from the 1990s, said she was “shocked and disgusted” by the accusations and that she did not believe them. Garst said the lobbyist had a crush on Shafer in 1994. Like Shelnutt, Garst worked for the state GOP at the time. “I know that (the lobbyist) has been furious with David for years because she believes he is blocking one of her wine bills,” Garst said in an email to the Daily Post. “She has repeatedly brought it up to me. But she has never once mentioned that he had harassed her. “Of all the people in the state Capitol, David Shafer is literally the last person that I would suspect of harassment. He is a good man. This allegation would be comical if it were not so destructive and sad. It’s just not David — no way.” FOX 5 Atlanta reported that the lobbyist denied the allegations that she and Shafer dated in the 1990s. Meanwhile, one of the Democratic candidates for lieutenant governor, Sarah Riggs Amico, called for greater transparency in the way sexual harassment claims against public officials are handled. “If elected, I promise that I will take the issue of sexual harassment seriously,” Amico said in a statement. “Under my watch, I pledge to make all accusations and proceedings regarding sexual harassment fulsome and transparent. Georgians have a right to know that their government handles these accusations and settlements in a responsible manner.”

Fire department reminds people to check alarms By Isabel Hughes
With clocks springing forward an hour today, the Gwinnett County Fire Department has reminded residents to change the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. “A working smoke alarm is your first line of defense when it comes to surviving a home fire,” said Gwinnett Fire Capt. Tommy Rutledge, “and the more smoke alarms you have, the earlier you will know there is a fire.” According to Rutledge, homes should be equipped with working alarms on each level, in the hallway outside the sleeping area and in each of the bedrooms. “Never ignore the noise of the smoke alarm,” he said. “A constant loud beeping sound from the alarm is an indication of smoke or fire in the home. Follow your family’s home fire escape plan and get everyone outside safe and fast.” Rutledge said an intermittent chirp sound from the alarm is an indication that the battery is going dead and needs to be replaced. “Many people take the battery out of the smoke alarm and forget to replace it,” he said. “Doing so will leave your home and family unprotected from the hazards associated with a residential fire.” Though most traditional smoke alarms are battery-powered, many residents are turning to smart alarms, many of which are hardwired into the home. However, firefighters suggest installing smoke alarms that are hardwired with a battery backup, Rutledge said, and the alarm should also be interconnected so that when one smoke alarm sounds, they all sound. While newer smoke alarms may incorporate a long-life (10-year) battery, in either case, Rutledge said the idea is to have more than one working smoke alarm in the home. Be sure to test the alarm monthly and replace all smoke alarms after 10 years. In addition to having working smoke alarms, Rutledge stressed the importance of having a home fire escape plan. “Be sure to have two ways out and keep exit pathways clear,” he said. “Doors and windows should be secured from intrusion but should be easy to open from the inside. Provide a collapsible fire escape ladder to escape from the second floor if traditional exits are blocked.” Homeowners are also encouraged to keep a multi-purpose ABC dry-chemical portable fire extinguisher close at hand. “A portable fire extinguisher can be used to extinguish a small fire that’s contained to where it started,” Rutledge said. “They may also be used to douse flames in order to escape a fire in the home. Keep your home and family safe from fire by looking for and eliminating home fire hazards that could cause a fire to start or that may intensify the flames.” For more information on home fire safety or to schedule a fire safety presentation, locals can contact the Gwinnett Fire Community Risk Reduction Section at 678-518-4845 or email fireprograms@ gwinnettcounty.com.

Victims or potential victims are asked to hang up the phone immediately and call police at 770-513-5300, should they receive such a call. Law enforcement and utility companies will never ask for money by phone.

Police Department and many other law enforcement agencies have seen a rise in a particular type of scam where suspects contact victims by phone and claim they have an outstanding debt of some variety,” a Gwinnett County warning said. “(The suspects) threaten consequences if the debt is not paid. In addition to posing as the police department, the suspects claim they represent a power company or other utility, and service will be immediately terminated if payment isn’t received or (say they’re) the IRS and back taxes are owed.” Police said scammers often will use real employee’s names when calling their targeted victims. Once on the phone, scammers tell victims that there are either active warrants for their arrest or overdue fines they owe and in order to avoid jail, the victim must drive to a local grocery or convenience store, load money onto a prepaid credit card (or Green Dot card) and then give the access codes to the caller. To make the call seem more legitimate, scammers are now using a computer
Bearing in Canton, Ohio as an Industrial Nurse. She retired from this position in 1992. For a brief time, she took a break from nursing and sold real estate in Northern Ohio. But nursing and caring for others was her calling and she ultimately returned to her field. Following retirement, Marie, an avid gardener, spent her time gardening, writing poetry for friends and family, contributing to her garden club and spending time with friends and family on her pontoon boat enjoying the scenery and fishing on Leesville Lake, Leesville, Ohio. As a young woman Marie played the piano, organ and trumpet, sang on the radio with a local trio and in the choir at Grace Methodist Church in Zanesville, Ohio where she was an active member. She continued playing the piano and organ well into retirement. She was an independent spirit who spent her life in love with nature, music and literature and provided comfort and care for those around her in need. For a number of years, she was a simultaneous caregiver for her mother Mary and spouse Richard who were both seriously ill prior to their deaths in early 1980. In 2007, she relocated from Justus, Ohio to Lawrenceville, Georgia to be closer to family. In Georgia, she continued to spend her time gardening, reading and writing poetry and caring for her new
dog who she aptly named Peaches after The Peach State, her new home. She had a delightful sense of humor and quick wit that remained with her long after dementia compromised her memory. She touched many, many lives over the years and will be sorely missed. Marie leaves 3 daughters, Merry Lou Schlarb (her primary caregiver) of Lawrenceville, GA, Sally Sue Ames of Wilmington, NC and Beth Ann Davis of Buckeye, AZ, 7 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 4 great, great grandchildren. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date when all her family will be able to attend, however, Memorial Donations may be made in her name to the Alzheimer’s Association at (alz.org) or Alzheimer’s Foundation of America at (alzfdn.org).

Georgia climate isn’t friendliest for cherry trees
This map illustration shows where planned pedestrian bridge across the Chattahoochee River would be built at the Pleasant Hill Road/State Bridge Road crossing.

BOC approves agreement with Johns Creek for pedestrian bridge BY CURT YEOMANS
Gwinnett County commissioners approved an agreement with Johns Creek this past week to ensure the widening of Pleasant Hill Road won’t result in the loss of a pedestrian crossing over the Chattahoochee River. Gwinnett County and Johns Creek are each
working on widening the road, which is known as Pleasant Hill on the Gwinnett side of the river and State Bridge Road on the Fulton County side. As part of that project, Gwinnett officials reached an agreement with their counterparts in Johns Creek to address the parallel bridges where the road changes names. The two sides agreed to remove the sidewalks
on the bridges and Johns Creek will take the lead on designing and building a new pedestrian bridge so residents who live in either side of the river can walk across it. Gwinnett County will reimburse the city for up to $750,000, which is expected to be about 50 percent of the project cost, using 2017 SPLOST funds. “When combined with our upcoming widening
of Pleasant Hill, from Howell Ferry Road to the river, and Johns Creek’s planned widening from the river to State Route 141, the project will provide a major capacity improvement across the river into north Fulton,” Gwinnett County Director of Transportation Alan Chapman said. Johns Creek officials approved the agreement in late January.

that are 6 to 8 inches in the spring. In late winter, cut the old ferns back to the soil to encourage new growth. Q: I have a section of my bermudagrass lawn is thinning out and is not healthy. It gets shade from a couple of nearby trees. What can I do to improve the growth of the grass? — Doris, Peachtree Corners A: Doris, bermudagrass is a tough grass that can tolerate heat, drought conditions, compaction and other stresses. However, it deteriorates in the shade. Several kinds of lawn grasses can handle filtered shade but not deep shade, such as zoysiagrass, St. Augustinegrass and tall fescuegrass. A better option is to install shadeloving ground covers such as liriope, mondo grass, Japanese pachysandra, Asiatic and Confederate jasmine, or wintergreen euonymus. Once established, these plants require minimal maintenance and will thrive in shady conditions.

Gardening columnist Tim Daly answers questions from readers: QUESTION: I see many cherry trees blooming throughout our area. I have planted some in my home landscape, but over time they decline and die. Are cherry trees adapted to our area? How can I help ensure the ones I still have survive? — Florence, Snellville ANSWER: Florence, cherry trees may thrive in Washington, D.C., but they are not adapted to the climate of the metro Atlanta area. The heat and humidity of our summers are tough on the trees in addition to the heavy clay acidic soils. You should plant other flowering trees that are better suited to our climate such as crabapples, redbuds and fringe trees. For existing cherry trees in your yard, evenly broadcast some dolomitic limestone, which can be purchased at local garden centers, over the root zone to help raise the pH. During prolonged dry periods, apply water long enough for it to penetrate deeply into the tree’s root zone. Q: I am interested in planting asparagus plants in my vegetable garden. Is it true they last year after year? What needs to be done to ensure I have productive plants? — Gene, Dacula A: Gene, asparagus plants are one of the few perennial vegetable plants, meaning they will come back every year. Once established, they will provide tasty spears every spring. The plants require full sun and soil that is well drained with rich organic matter. When planting, purchase diseasefree crowns at local garden centers or through mailorder seed companies. In soil that has been prepared, plant them 6 to 8 inches deep 18 inches apart. Add fertilizer, such as 10-1010, in amounts based on soil tests at planting. Water thoroughly. Do not harvest the spears the first and second year to give the plant time to become established and vigorously growing. Afterward, harvest spears

etery in October 1961 in College Park. Since that time, he has owned, operated and sold more than 100 cemeteries. Memorial Park is a group of funeral homes he has owned since 1988. He has expanded to three locations — Memorial Park Main and Memorial Park South in Gainesville, and
the newly opened Memorial Park East in Braselton. “I started going up to this area and meeting people,” Frost said. “I had never experienced so many top-notch, down-to-earth people.” Because of the people and his wife’s desire to live in a gated community, the family moved to Chateau
Elan in Braselton to be near their business. A key reason Frost is donating money for the REACH scholarship is because he wants to give children the chance to use their education as a springboard to future endeavors. “I graduated 104 out of 108 students in my high school class,” Frost said. “I’m not smart, but I do have a lot of common sense. There are many kids that need help and that’s why I supported Gov. Deal’s REACH program.” Frost, a staunch supporter of Deal, said the REACH program was one of the best programs he has done during his two terms as Georgia’s governor. “All the students that live in Chateau Elan go to Mill Creek High School,” Frost said. “Colleen (Cox) is a better salesperson than I am and she’s sold me on Mill Creek. The principal and the football coach at that school have been impressive.” Frost said he will donate $5,000 each year for the next three years to be used as scholarships. Details on how the money will be divided into individual scholarships has not been determined. “It could be five $1,000 scholarship, two $2,500
scholarships or just one $5,000 scholarship,” Frost said. “I’m leaving that up to them.” Frost said with the success he projects to have at the new Braselton funeral home location, he plans on putting in his will to increase the amount of money he will give to $10,000 a year. “I’ve been very fortunate and God has blessed me by selling all these cemetery lots so I have been able to give back,” Frost said. “It’s important to me that Memorial Park has a positive impact on the communities it serves.” To qualify for the REACH scholarship students must be on free/reduced lunch, not have had more than two in-school suspensions during the two semesters or four quarters immediately preceding the spring term of the student’s seventh-grade year, and not have any crime and/or drug convictions. To receive the financial reward that comes with the REACH scholarship at the conclusion of their senior year, students sign a contract stating they will maintain a 2.5 grade point average, meet with their assigned mentor eight times a semester and an academic coach four times each semester.

Children with Down syndrome deserve life
WASHINGTON — When Karen Gaffney’s mother found out she would be born with Down syndrome, the doctor said Karen probably would not be able to tie her own shoes. Instead, as Karen explained in a moving and eloquent TEDx talk, she has become an accomplished open-water swimmer who has crossed the English Channel in a relay race and completed the swimming leg of the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon. Now she fears the result of a new race — the one to “find newer, faster ways” to screen for Down syndrome so that more children with the disability can be killed in the womb. Her fears are wellfounded. CBS News recently reported that Iceland was on the verge Marc of “eliminating” Down Thiessen syndrome. Unfortunately, there was no great medical breakthrough to report. Iceland, it turns out, is not eliminating Down syndrome; it is eliminating people with Down syndrome. The country’s abortion rate for Down syndrome babies is close to 100 percent — the highest in the world. Denmark is close behind at 98 percent. In the United States, it is 67 percent — and Karen fears the rates here will soon reach European levels. “Save our lives!” she pleads. Sadly, there will always be those who see people with Down syndrome as nothing more than a burden on society. Princeton University professor Robert George recently tweeted out a shocking video in which a bureaucrat from Dutch National Institute for Public Health shows a man with Down syndrome on a blackboard how “expensive” he is for society compared to “normal” people. “Do the Dutch, who suffered under — and in many cases heroically resisted — Hitler’s domination, forget that the ‘final solution’ began with the dehumanization and eugenic killing of the handicapped?” George asked. Today, more and more people with Down syndrome are speaking out and demanding recognition of their humanity. Recently, Frank Stephens appeared before the House Appropriations Committee, where he told members of Congress, “I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living.” Noting the abortion rates for Down syndrome babies in Europe, he declared, “I completely understand that the people pushing this particular ‘final solution’ are saying that people like me should not exist,” but pleaded, “Let’s be America, not Iceland or Denmark. … Let’s pursue inclusion, not termination.” The message of inclusion is slowly getting through. Last month, baby food maker Gerber named Lucas Warren — a boy with Down syndrome — its 2018 “Gerber Spokesbaby,” selecting him out of 140,000 entries for his “glowing and giggly smile.” Good for Gerber. His glowing smile should be no surprise. Rather than leading lives of suffering, a 2011 study by Harvard researchers found people with Down syndrome have unusually high rates of happiness. An amazing 99 percent said they are happy with their lives, 97 percent like who they are and 96 percent like how they look. “Overall, the overwhelming majority of people with Down syndrome surveyed indicate they live happy and fulfilling lives,” the researchers found. Far from being a burden on their families, a study from Boston Children’s Hospital found that children with Down syndrome bring enormous joy to their loved ones. Ninety-four percent of siblings expressed feelings of pride about their brother or sister with Down syndrome, and 88 percent said that they were better people because of them. Only 4 percent would trade their sibling in for another, and only 4 percent of parents regretted having their Down syndrome child. It turns out, the researchers concluded, that “the experience of Down syndrome is a positive one for most parents, siblings and people with Down syndrome themselves.” Lawmakers are taking notice. As The Washington Post reports this week, more states are passing laws prohibiting doctors from performing abortions because of a fetal Down syndrome diagnosis. Indiana, North Dakota, Louisiana and Ohio have passed such laws, with Ohio’s “Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act” scheduled take effect later this month. Utah is currently debating a similar law. The bill’s sponsor, Republican state Rep. Karianne Lisonbee, says it is “Utah’s message to the world is that we will not tolerate discrimination.” Naturally, pro-abortion absolutists are suing to block these laws (successfully in the case of Indiana). It is simply intolerable that so many joyous lives are being snuffed out. “All lives are a gift from God,” Gaffney says. “To me, that means that all lives matter, even if you will be born with an extra chromosome.” Follow Marc A. Thiessen on Twitter, @marcthiessen.
Country’s salvation is in our homes Now Israel is a bit of a different place. They call it the Holy Land, and as I wander along the Golan Heights and around the Sea of Galilee, along the West Bank and up to Jerusalem, I am reminded, this week, of those beautiful pictures from my children’s Bible and my Sunday school literature. I am so thankful I had a children’s Bible in my house when I was growing up in Porterdale. I am so thankful that my parents took me to Sunday school every week and didn’t let me “wait until I was old enough to decide for myself” if I wanted to go to church. They didn’t let me decide for myself if I wanted to play with matches or run out in traffic or wear pants in public. Why would they let me decide for myself if I wanted to learn about God? But we were talking about those Bible illustrations. I remember the one that showed Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane. I was there this week, sitting on a rock that has been in the same place for at least 2,000 years, under olive trees that witnessed that same scene. I remember a picture of Jesus seated on a mountain overlooking the Sea of Galilee, delivering the most

I’ve even been to Jericho and seen some 2,000-yearold sycamore trees, and I wondered if little Zacchaeus might have climbed up in one of them to catch a glimpse of Jesus of Nazareth as he walked by.

It’s the parents and grandparents who need to restore prayer to the homes of our nation that hold the key to the salvation of American society. Not the schools. Not the government. Just those of us who claim to be Christians. I was in Tel Megiddo last weekend and saw the stables where Solomon once kept 150 horses. Solomon, according to Scripture, was the wisest man to ever live. He once wrote, “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.” Our land could use a little healing. Our land could use a few more children being raised in the church and learning the stories of Jesus. Our nation could use a little more love. I don’t know a lot. I’m just an old linthead from Porterdale. But I know that. I know that for a solid gold fact. “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke.

3 young people show positives of justice system I try to live my life by two simple rules: One, never eat soup with a fork, and two, try not to disagree with the county sheriff. The first one will stain your tie something awful. The latter will likely get you in a heap of trouble if you roll through their county acting like you own the place. I am doing OK with the soup thing, but it looks like I am going to have a bit of a problem adhering to rule No. 2. Sheriff Howard Sills of Putnam County recently referred to Gov. Nathan Deal as Lucifer, as in the devil. The sheriff doesn’t like the governor’s efforts in criminal justice reform, telling his colleagues, “This governor has done more for those who perpetrate crime than Lucifer and his demons combined.” From where I sit, I think the governor has done — to trade on the Lucifer analogy — a helluva job. And I sit as a member of the board of the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice. Seated around me are a district attorney, several law enforcement officials, a retired prison warden, child advocates, three judges and some of the most dedicated employees on God’s Green Earth. All under the leadership of a commissioner, Avery D. Niles, who approaches his job with the zeal of an evangelist. The Department of Juve-
Dick Yarbrough nile Justice deals with young offenders up to the age of 21 charged with felonies or misdemeanors. The department holds these young people accountable for their actions but also works to turn their lives around by providing them a variety of support systems, including a chance to get quality education. We — meaning the department — have our own school, the Georgia Preparatory Academy, a fully accredited facility with its own faculty and its own Board of Education on which I proudly sit as a member. Last year, GPA enrolled more than 6,300 juvenile offenders, most of whom are two to three years behind their peers in academic achievement. A couple of days after Sheriff Sills launched his broadside, I sat in a board meeting and saw the positive side of criminal justice reform. Appearing before us were three young people who
have taken advantage of the second chance they have been given and, as sure as I am of anything, are going to become good productive citizens in our society, thanks to dedicated staff members working within an enlightened juvenile justice system focused on reclamation and rehabilitation. Camillia Thompson, an 11th-grader, and Keywanna Kaigler, a ninth-grader, attend the Bibb County Educational Transitional Center. The ETC, one of three in the state, serves students who have been released from juvenile facilities but are still under community supervision. They were chosen to be pages at the Capitol for a day by House Minority Leader Rep. Bob Trammell, D-Luthersville. It was the first time young people from the Georgia Juvenile Justice system or from any juvenile system in the nation had received such recognition. Kudos to Rep. Trammell. Camillia, who plans to become a nurse practitioner, called the experience an “eyeopener” and said, “We were welcomed with open arms by everyone we worked with that day. The experience made me feel valued and important.” Keywanna aspires to become a doctor. She told the board, “There was never a dull moment throughout the session. The whole experience was exceptional. It inspired me
to fight for the things I believe in and make positive changes in the world I live in.” Then came Armoni BoydStrozier, a 20-year-old from Fayetteville who is currently in his fifth semester at Fort Valley State, thanks to a program called eCore, which allows DJJ graduates to take online college-level courses accepted by all colleges in the University System of Georgia. He talked about his plans to major in business administration and complete his MBA and work in Artist Management. Do not bet against this young man. He is the real deal. Commissioner Avery says, “These three youths are a testament as to why we cannot give up on the youth in our system because when we set expectations, given the right tools and support many of our youth can and will rise to the occasion.” I respect Sheriff Sills’ right to object to Gov. Deal’s criminal justice reform efforts, but I must play the devil’s advocate here (that Lucifer thing again.) From where I sit and from what I saw last week, I am pleased to say that things are going exceedingly well in that area. Thank heaven.

Clay hopes to parlay pro day into NFL opportunity By David Friedlander david.friedlander @gwinnettdailypost.com
Not being fortunate enough to earn an invitation to the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, Georgia State’s B.J. Clay knew the school’s pro day wasn’t just his best chance to catch the eye of scouts in advance of next months draft, but his only chance. Based on his performance during his workout for a handful of scouts last Tuesday at the GSU Football Complex in Atlanta, including at least two from the Atlanta Falcons, the Dacula grad appears to have accomplished that mission. Clay turned in some impressive numbers, the most notable being times of 4.35 and 4.43 seconds in the 40-yard dash, and more than tripling his reps in the 225-pound bench press from previous scores, as well as recording a 33-inch vertical leap. Only time will tell if those performances, plus his own performances over four years in the Panthers’ program, will give Clay a chance to either be drafted some time in the seven rounds of this year’s NFL Draft from April 26-28 in Arlington, Texas, or to come to a team’s training camp as an undrafted free agent. However, the 5-foot-11 3/4, 179-pound cornerback is quite confident that he only helped his chances with his pro day showing. “Everything was all positive from everybody that was there,” said Clay, who recorded seven combined tackles, three pass defenses and three pass breakups in 12 games for GSU in his
senior season last fall. “It was a really cool experience. I just appreciated it for all the attention and everything. But yeah, it was definitely more positive than I expected. “Hopefully during the next two months, I can get some (more) workouts in and create a little bit more buzz. We’ll see what happens at the end of April.” Clay has put in a lot of work in his four years in GSU program, including tying for the team lead with three interceptions as a junior in 2016. However, he credits some extra work he’s put in since the end of the Panthers’ historic 2017 campaign, which included tying for the school record with seven wins and the program’s first bowl victory, as making a difference in last Tuesday’s pro day workout. That work has been with primarily with Central Gwinnett grad Manny Rodriguez and his staff at Ultimate 48 Fitness in Lawrenceville, whom Clay says has helped him channel a little extra focus into his training. “He’s been (training athletes) for a long time,” Clay said of Rodriguez. “He’s just taught me a lot about the importance of core (exercises) … and just paying attention to the little that will help you, of course, in the future. … He really knows what he’s talking about.” Rodriguez has a successful track record. He helped train another Dacula grad, fullback Alex Armah, who was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the sixth round of last year’s draft after a college career at West Georgia.
He eventually earned a spot on the roster, playing in nine games last season after being signed off the practice squad. He and his staff have noticed a lot of the same focus and work ethic in Clay and are very pleased with the progress he’s made in just two short months working with them. “I’m just proud of how he was so focused,” Rodriguez said. “I mean, he was one of those guys who nobody was really paying attention to as far as the scouts and the agents that I’ve talked to. Then on his pro day, I texted a Falcons scout and asked him, … ’How’s my guy doing?’ He said, ‘The dude blazed his 40.’ It was awesome to hear that. Getting B.J. to come back and explain that to all the guys that haven’t done all their combine was awesome, just because he kind of saw how hard work and dedication and the little specific stuff that we preach and the structure and all that carried on to performing well. “He just texted that he got invited to the Falcons’ local (pro) day (in early April). So (people) keep on talking about him. Last year, (Carolina) drafted Alex Armah out of Dacula High School. B.J. went to the same high school as Alex Armah, so hopefully that can carry on to this year.” Armah isn’t the only friend who is providing inspiration to Clay. Panther teammate and fellow cornerback, WinderBarrow grad Chandon Sullivan, participated in last week’s NFL combine and was present for GSU’s pro day, though he didn’t work out with Clay.

The Georgia State men’s basketball team can earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament with one more win on Sunday. The Panthers beat Georgia Southern 73-67 in the Sun Belt Conference tournament semifinals at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans and advanced to play the University of
Texas-Arlington in the championship game at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Buford native Isaiah Williams scored a teamhigh 21 points and Jordan Session had 16 points and nine rebounds. Jeff Thomas added 16 points for the Panthers. Georgia State out-scored Georgia Southern 46-31 in the first half, but the Eagles outscored the Pan-
thers 36-27 in the second half. The first 2:41 of the second half was scoreless and the Panthers led 57-44 with roughly 11 minutes remaining. Georgia Southern went on a 12-3 run to pull within five points with four minutes left, and Georgia Southern was within three points when Quan Jackson converted a 3-point play with 53 seconds left.
Collins Hill grad Devin Mitchell put the Panthers up two possessions with a late 3-pointer and Georgia Southern was forced to foul. Georgia State is 1-1 against Texas-Arlington this season. The teams last met on Feb. 24, when the Panthers lost 89-81. Georgia State won the first meeting on Jan. 25 at home 81-75.

Mustangs •From Page 1B book error, and Kyle Sturdivant hitting one of the two ensuing free throws to give Norcross a quick 1-0 lead. From that point, the two teams traded the lead 10 times, with neither team leading by more than five points, and saw five ties throughout the first half. The last two exchanges came when Issa Muhammad connected on a jumper from the baseline with 36 seconds left in the half to put the Blue Devils up, followed by a layup from Cory Hightower at the 24-second mark, to send the Mustangs into intermission with a scant 27-26 lead. The seesaw continued through the third quarter with five more lead changes and two more ties. However, the pace remained more to Meadowcreek’s liking, something Norcross learned from experience it would have to find a way to counter. “There was nothing easy,” Norcross coach Jesse McMillan said. “We had zero transition opportunities, and we were handcuffed at times with foul trouble. “We were 1-for-14 (shooting) on 3s and had two assists for the game. Everything was difficult. It felt like if the ball had bounced a little different here or there, we would’ve had the opportunity to do something.” Indeed, both teams struggled with foul trouble, with Kelly picking up his third foul with 7:11 left in the third quarter and Mustang teammate Kendrick

West dominates in final prep basketball showing By Christine Troyke christine.troyke@ gwinnettdailypost.com
ATLANTA — Wesleyan inbounded the ball with one second left in the first half. Senior Sutton West drained an open mid-range jumper and the Wolves streamed into the locker room with a 27-22 lead over Holy Innocents’ in Friday’s Class A Private state final. With a flick of her wrist, West changed the momentum of the game — for herself and her team. West and fellow senior Amaya Register dominated the second half and led Wesleyan to its 13th state title. They beat Holy Innocents’ 61-44 at Georgia Tech’s McCamish Pavilion, avenging three straight regular-season losses to their region rival. “It was a big momentum shift,” Register said. “Coming into the second half, we had a lot of energy from that shot. It really sparked us.” West finished with a team-high 17 points and played all but the final
minute of the game. She and Register were subbed out with the Wolves up by 21. That was when it all sunk in. “I actually wasn’t looking at the score a ton in the fourth quarter,” West said. “It makes me nervous, so I was just trying to keep playing our game and running fast breaks and getting open looks. “But it was just fun at that point (coming to the bench). We knew it was our last game and we knew we were going out on top. It was an awesome feeling. Losing to them three times before definitely makes this feel even better, but it’s already an amazing experience.” Before West knocked down the buzzer-beater at the end of the first half, she had just four points. But she was a changed player from that point. West opened the second half with a strong drive in the lane, drew a shooting foul and then went hard to the bucket again. It all added up to a 32-24 lead and Holy Innocents’ calling for a timeout with 4:54 left in
the third quarter. “The biggest turn in the game was Sutton attacking the basket,” Wesleyan head coach Jan Azar said. West continued to slice apart the Bears’ defense in the middle, leading Wesleyan to an insurmountable lead in the fourth quarter. West, a three-sport start, closed out her final high school basketball game by flying in for a rebound and putback in the final minutes. “She is a killer,” Azar said. “She’s a silent killer. She really came into her own this season.” Azar saw the possibility six years ago. “I told her in the sixth grade — and some people told me I was crazy because you should see her sixth-grade picture — that she could do this,” Azar said. “She believed me. “Sutton is a phenomenal athlete and she’s smart. Those two things together mean you can do just about anything. I can’t take credit for her brain or her athleticism. Hopefully I have some for teaching her how to play basketball, but she’s a phenomenal kid.”

Green picking up his fourth with 7:09 to play, while Blue Devils stars Sturdivant and Boston also raking up the fouls early and often in the second half. And with Norcross holding a 36-34 lead heading into the fourth quarter, Kelly said he and his Meadowcreek teammates knew it was now or never. “Last year we struggled with getting up on teams and not finishing,” the 6-foot-9 Duquesnebound senior said. “So this year, we made it a point to get up and finish the game strong, make our free throws at the end and execute our defense. (Saturday), we really pushed to get up in the fourth and make sure we keep that lead.” The Mustangs quickly evened the game at 36-all on Jamir Chaplin’s layup off a lob from Kelly with
7:27 to play, and then took a 38-36 lead when they cashed in a Norcross turnover with Nichols’ drive to the basket seven seconds later at the 7:20 mark. Complicating matters further for Norcross was Boston, who finished with 13 points, fouling out with 6:10 left. From there, Meadowcreek applied the defensive clamps, allowing Norcross just seven points in the final frame, with the Blue Devils not connecting on their first field goal of the quarter until a layup by reserve Caleb Murphy with 53 seconds remaining. By the time that happened, Hightower scored on a layup and Chaplin added a breakaway dunk to ignite a 9-1 run that extended the Mustangs’ lead to 47-37 following Chaplin hitting 1 of 2 from the line with 1:42

West said. “We did the little things right and we stayed in it. We didn’t let any run they had get us out of playing our game. We just stuck with it.” Sophomore Izzy Larsen drained a 3-pointer with a quick release to give Wesleyan an early fivepoint lead. Holy Innocents’ grabbed its first lead as the first quarter came to an end. Jada Farrell hit a 3 from the corner and followed it up with a drive in the lane. The Bears (29-2) got up 15-11 to start the second quarter before the momentum shifted. Larsen banked in a putback, Register scored on another offensive board and A.C. Carter went inside out on the baseline. The three straight buckets turned a three-point deficit into a three-point lead midway through the second quarter. Carter, who finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds, rattled in a 3 from the top of the arc for a 25-19 lead and then the seniors took over. “It was a little frustrating (in the first half) because I was trying to attack a little bit and the shots weren’t falling,” Register said. “We just needed to be patient, do what works well for us. And it starts on defense. When we got steals and turnovers from them, we turned it into points. That was a lot of fun.” West and Register dominated the second half. West finished with a team-high 17 points, eight rebounds and two blocks. Register added 12 points, dished out three assists and had two steals. Both played 31 of 32 minutes. A 27-22 halftime lead quickly ballooned to double digits on a smooth 3-pointer by Register, her first of the game, from up top. Freshman Paige Lyons followed that up with a backbreaking play. Lyons
the difference in this game.” The Wolves (27-4) graduated eight seniors from last year and slogged through the expected growing pains. Other than a loss to Class AAAAA state champion Buford, the only team to beat Wesleyan this season was Holy Innocents’ one of those losses was by 20 points and even many of the Wolves’ regular-season wins weren’t pretty. “I think we got better,” Azar said matter of factly. “You get used to having eight seniors and you depend on them a lot. So I’m just really proud of our kids for following through on the game plan and working hard to get better this season.” Wesleyan found its stride at just the right time. The Wolves lost to Holy Innocents’ in the region tournament final, but it was only by seven points and gave them confidence for the rematch to come. After a first-round bye, Wesleyan rolled through Eagle’s Landing Christian 71-25 and Calvary Day 60-20. Then came a semifinal clash with St. Francis, thought to be a serious title contender. The Wolves destroyed St. Francis 71-49 and punched their ticket to the championship game for the 15th straight year. Register and West felt the same shock at that margin of victory Friday. “Exactly,” West said excitedly. “When you look up and go, ‘When did that happen?’” The buzz from this heavyweight bout resulted in a stilted start, with turnovers and missed shots on both ends. “I wouldn’t say it was our best basketball (early), but we definitely came out ready to win,”
remaining. And down the stretch, Meadowcreek finally conquered a demon that had haunted it this entire season in close games — free-throw shooting. The Mustangs finished just 17 of 28 (60.7 percent) from the line on the night but hit 7 of 10 form the line in the final 1:22 to close out the game, and the championship. In addition to Nichols and Kelly, Chaplin reached double figures with 13 points, nine of which came in the fourth quarter, while the Mustangs also got six points, a game-high 11 rebounds and four assists from Hightower. Sturdivant led Norcross with 14 points to join Boston in double figures and pulled down seven rebounds, while Joseph Toppin chipped in seven points and eight boards for the Blue Devils.
stole the ball, sliced to the basket on a fast break and drew the foul. Her three-point play pushed Wesleyan’s lead to 39-26 with 3:14 left in the third quarter. Lyons was the fourth Wolf in double figures with 10 points. She also had three steals and six rebounds. “Our offense in the second half was beautiful,” Azar said. “Sutton took it to the basket. Amaya distributed the ball. Paige Lyons attacked the basket. A.C. (Carter) and Callie (Weaver) got in foul trouble, but didn’t foul out, which is huge. “Everybody did their part, but I’m just really proud of Amaya and Sutton for leading this team all season and not giving up.” Holy Innocents’ never got within striking distance again. The Wolves led by as much as 21. Both times it was courtesy of free throws by Lyons. The second time, with 1:05 left in the game, was when West and Register came out. Azar gave each one a big hug as they got to the bench and it was all smiles from there. “When she took us out, I looked up and we were up by 20,” Register said. “Even when we got to the locker room, shocking is not even the word. For us to play like that and beat them by almost 20 is just an amazing feeling. “We’ve gotten so much better. It was amazing, not only to play them in the state championship, but to beat them like that, it was a lot of fun.” Holy Innocents’ senior Kaila Hubbard scored a game-high 18 points, but only Farrell joined her in double digits with 13. Highly touted 6-foot-4 freshman Jillian Hollingshead pulled down 16 rebounds, but had just five points. The Bears shot 27.1 percent from the field in the game.

Stingrays shut out Gladiators, 5-0 From Staff Reports South Carolina’s wave of four goals in the third period Atlanta Gladiators blew open what was a close game for the first 40 minutes. Atlanta (28-31-1-2) fell 5-0 Saturday night behind the goals of four different Stingrays. Nick Roberto had two in the final period to lead the team win goals. South Carolina struck in the first six minutes of the game with a goal from Joe Devin, his 18th of the season. Shots on goal were even at 12-12 and there were no penalties in the first period. The score was still 1-0 after the second period, but Atlanta played at least one man down from the 9:04 mark in the second period to the 5:10 mark on two separate minor penalties. Once the Gladiators returned to full strength, Atlanta took the final five shots on goal, all stopped by South Carolina’s Parker
Milner. South Carolina iced the game in the third period with four more goals, and Atlanta managed just seven shots on target. The Gladiators were playing without dynamic rookie forward Tanner Pond, who was called up to AHL Providence on Friday, but did get defenseman Taylor Doherty back from the P-Bruins. Atlanta signed physical forward Brennan Saulnier ahead of Saturday’s game. Saulnier, 24, spent the past four years at the University of AlabamaHuntsville. In 30 games during his senior season, the Halifax, Nova Scotia, native posted career-highs in goals (eight) and penalty minutes (121). The 6-foot, 180-pound forward had 56 points and 351 penalty minutes during his four-year tenure with the Chargers. Atlanta returns to Infinite Energy Arena on Tuesday to host Idaho.

Bowman extactic to race on home track By Holly Cain NASCAR Wire Service

Step up in class was an eye-opener for Byron no doubt about it, it was a rough weekend, but we definitely learned a lot from it. “Just to make it 500 miles and to know what that’s going to be like and to know what I need to do to get to that point was the biggest thing for me. Once I kind of realized where we were as far as how our car handled and things like that, you just kind of reset your goals and just go from there to figure out what you can do to maximize the day.” The Las Vegas weekend started on a more optimistic note. Byron found speed late in Friday’s opening practice and posted the fifth fastest lap in qualifying trim at 190.282 mph. In time trials later that afternoon, he earned a seasonbest 17th starting position for the Pennzoil 400. Sunday’s race was another matter. Byron finished 27th, four laps down to race winner Harvick, who drove off into the desert sunset, leaving just eight other cars on the lead lap. To be fair, Byron isn’t the only Hendrick Motorsports driver who has struggled this season. The company is working hard to discover the subtleties of the new Camaro ZL1 race car while dealing with a new organizational model that has all four crew chiefs in the same building. Before the Daytona 500, Byron had never run a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, making his learning curve as steep as it can possibly be. Nevertheless, Byron’s own history offers bright promise. Typically, he starts slowly — and learns fast. Two races into his first full season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016, Byron was 25th in points. He went on to win seven times that
year and spent 13 consecutive races on top of the standings before a blown engine at Phoenix cost him a chance to compete for the championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway a week later. Last year, in his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut season, Byron didn’t win until the 14th race of this season. He went on to collect four victories, including a “revenge” win in the next-to-last race at Phoenix. Byron won the series title with a third-place finish at Homestead. The message is clear. When the switch goes on for Byron, the performance escalates meteorically. And it does so while Byron stays current with his online courses at Liberty. “I think that, once it clicks, it’s going to be the same as any other series,” Byron said. “When it clicks, and you know what you need in the car, and you know how to produce that result, it doesn’t matter whether there are 30 good cars or 20 good cars. I think that once it does click for us, and once we know and we show up each week, and we’re very close to how we need to be, it’s going to start to click and rack off those successful finishes. “But I would say there is a lot of stuff to work on. I mean, there’s the pit road stuff, the green-flag stops, the length of the races and then just learning Darrian and my guys to know what to do. I think we’re going to get there probably quicker than people expect, but there might be some rough patches here and there.” Then again, perhaps Byron is just getting the rough patches out of the way early, as he has done at every previous level of NASCAR racing.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — To call William Byron’s initiation into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series a baptism by fire wouldn’t be giving enough credit to the fire. To say the least, the 20-year-old Liberty University sophomore has had a rough debut in his first three races at NASCAR’s highest level, but not for a lack of grit or effort. Starting the seasonopening Daytona 500 in a backup car after an early crash in the first Can-Am Duel qualifying race three days earlier, Byron was part of a nine-car wreck on Lap 60 of the Great American Race. Despite a subsequent spin off Turn 4 on Lap 190, Byron soldiered on to a 23rd-place finish, four laps down to overtime winner Austin Dillon. A week later at Atlanta, Byron went a lap down to eventual race winner Kevin Harvick before a scheduled competition caution on Lap 30. Only Harvick’s largesse — slowing enough to let Byron pass him before the yellow flag waved — kept Byron on the lead lap. Byron and crew chief Darian Grubb improved the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet throughout the race, but Byron was no match for Harvick. No one else was either. Byron fought through the afternoon and was running at the finish, two laps down in 18th place. Last year’s NASCAR Xfinity Series champion had never worked harder for a mid-pack result. “Yeah, especially with what I fought in the beginning of the race,” Byron acknowledged last Friday before qualifying at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. “It was rough.

Drivers search for elusive victories at ISM Raceway By Holly Cain
NASCAR Wire Service
Avondale, Ariz. — This weekend’s arrival in his home state for today’s TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway in Phoenix, is a sentimental first for Hendrick Motorsports driver Alex Bowman. It isn’t his first start in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on the 1-mile oval and it’s not even his first drive in the iconic No. 88 Hendrick Chevrolet Camaro. But it is the first time Bowman, 25, has driven this car as his own, set to take the green flag in a competitive opportunity at his home track. “It’s always fun to come home,’’ the Tucson, Ariz. native said Friday morning before opening practice in Phoenix. “Don’t really get to spend a lot of time out here. It’s definitely an enjoyable trip. I really enjoy this racetrack too. Pretty successful here, wish we could close races a little better here. “We have run really well here in the Xfinity Series and in the Cup Series. Just never been able to close one off. Hopefully, that all changes this weekend.” Filling in for a theninjured Dale Earnhardt Jr. two seasons ago in the Phoenix fall race, Bowman scored his first ever Cup pole position and led an impressive 194 of the 324 laps on his way to a sixth-place finish — his first top-20 showing there. The pole position and the finish career bests too. It wasn’t just good for the heart, it was the ultimate chance to prove he could do big things with the right opportunity. And Hendrick Motorsports is the ultimate opportunity. After being named to take over the No. 88 when Earnhardt retired at the end of last season, Bowman’s career has taken a new avenue and the prospects are now in line with his expectation.

He won the pole and led 13 laps in the seasonopening Daytona 500, but was sidelined after being caught up in an accident. He has added finishes of 20th (Atlanta) and 16th (Las Vegas) since and is actually the highest ranked driver in the four-car Hendrick stable — 17th in the standings — coming to Phoenix. “Well, Daytona went well,’’ Bowman said. “We had a really fast racecar and contended all day and then got caught up in a wreck at the end. There is really nothing you can do there. But you know, other than that, we have not run how we expect and how we want to run. “It hasn’t been a great start for us. I think we unloaded at Atlanta and quickly realized that we have a lot of work to do. We’ve got the best guys in the business back at the shop working hard. We made progress last week. We were definitely better last week. We didn’t get the finish that we would have hoped for, but we are making progress. “To start the year, we are behind what we expected to be, but like I said before, there is such a depth of really smart people at Hendrick Motorsports that I’m confident that we will be contending for race wins soon.” Interestingly, Bowman doesn’t necessarily consider his home track
a particularly “best” shot for his first trip to Cup’s victory circle. His best NASCAR finish on it is a runner-up in a 2011 NASCAR K&N West Series race there when Bowman was only 18 years old. But the sixth place here two years ago gives him reason to smile. He remains optimistic about his chances this weekend. His last time behind the wheel of this car at Phoenix produced a career highlight reel. At last, he is in the ride of his life and there has never been a better time — or frankly, locale — to seize this opportunity. “Absolutely, we have a notebook of what I liked here and a really good one at that,’’ Bowman said of making his first “return” trip to a track driving a Hendrick car. “We were really fast here before,’’ he said. “I think it’s a positive. We’ve got some changes. The racecar has changed, we have the new car in the Camaro ZL1. “A lot has changed, but at the same time at least we have something to kind of look back on and look at what changes I liked and didn’t like throughout practice and where our car was strong and where we needed work. “I think it’s always good to have that notebook to lean on and especially here with as good of a notebook as we’ve had.”
Sherman meets with 49ers Field Level Media Richard Sherman spent his first day as a free agent with the San Francisco 49ers. Sherman, a three-time All-Pro cornerback with the Seattle Seahawks, was released Friday in a cap-related move and told ESPN he immediately received significant interest. His first stop is Santa Clara, Calif., and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Saturday that it could very well be his only visit with the expectation the 49ers are ready to write a check if Sherman’s surgically repaired Achilles passes inspection. Sherman turns 30 on March 30. In addition to the 49ers, Sherman said the Titans, Lions, Raiders, Texans, Buccaneers and Packers were interested in meeting with Sherman, who is acting as his own agent. Seattle plays the 49ers twice every season in the NFC West. The Seahawks saved $11 million against the 2018 salary cap by releasing Sherman. Seattle also traded defensive end Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles — the deal isn’t official until Wednesday, when the new league year begins — and are reportedly all ears if teams want to blow them away with a trade offer for safety Earl Thomas. San Francisco started
the offseason with a $137.5 million pact with impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo. The move, coupled with a six-game winning streak to end the season, has sparked significant interest from free agents, general manager John Lynch said at the NFL Scouting Combine. Sherman ended last season on injured reserve because of a ruptured right Achilles. He had surgery on his left Achilles to remove bone spurs in January. Sherman expects to be ready for the regular season but could be limited in August for training camp and parts of the preseason. The Stanford product is from Compton, Calif. Browns trade DT Shelton to Pats The Cleveland Browns made their fourth trade in 24 hours by sending defensive tackle Danny Shelton to the New England Patriots, according to multiple reports Saturday. The Patriots also acquired Cleveland’s fifthround pick in the 2018 NFL Draft in exchange for New England’s thirdround pick in 2019. The trade won’t be official until Wednesday when the new league year begins. The 6-foot-2, 335-pound Shelton was drafted 12th overall out of the University of Washington in the first round
in 2015 and played 46 games. He recorded 71 tackles and 1.5 sacks in three seasons. Shelton’s value to the Browns was diminished when Gregg Williams was brought in as defensive coordinator in 2017 and converted to a 4-3 alignment. The Patriots needed help up front after deciding not to pick up the option on defensive tackle Alan Branch. In addition, defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois said Friday that he expects to play elsewhere in 2018.

world&nation World U.K. holds an urgent meeting over Russian spy attack
Britain’s home secretary and government ministers held an emergency meeting Saturday as investigators probe the attempt to kill a former Russian double agent and his daughter using a rare nerve agent. Some 180 military personnel have been deployed to the normally quiet cathedral city of Salisbury in southern England to help police as they investigate several sites amid concerns over potential contamination. Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter, Yulia, 33, remain hospitalized in “very serious condition” after being poisoned this week in Salisbury, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said as she visited the city Friday. The father and daughter — believed by authorities to have been deliberately targeted — were found slumped on a bench near a shopping center on Sunday afternoon.
Will hitting China with tariffs hurt the solar power industry in India? India wants to become a solar powerhouse, generating enough energy for more than 16 million homes by 2022. The government has approved dozens of new solar plants, rooftop projects and lighting systems, and is offering financial incentives to companies that build them. And Prime Minister Narendra Modi will host the first gathering of the International Solar Alliance in New Delhi on today, with French President Emmanuel Macron in attendance. But the international summit comes as India’s plan to slap a 70 percent tariff on imported solar panels divides the country’s industry. Panel installers say the tariffs could kill any hope of hitting the 2022 target, while panel makers say they’re vital to prevent China from gaining too much influence.
Turkish court frees journalists on bail in trial of opposition paper Two Turkish journalists from the country’s opposition Cumhuriyet newspaper have been released on bail after spending more than a year in pretrial detention on terror-related charges. Editor-in-Chief Murat Sabuncu and investigative journalist Ahmet Sik were among more than a dozen journalists and staff from Cumhuriyet to be placed on trial accused of supporting terror organizations operating in Turkey. At a hearing Friday, a court in Silivri, outside Istanbul, ruled the two men should be released, but the charges against them still stand. — From wire reports
More snow headed for Northeast By Ray Sanchez and Faith Karimi CNN
Still digging out from a nor’easter that buried parts of northwestern Massachusetts with up to 2 feet of snow, a new storm could deliver more snow and strong winds to the East Coast early next week. Forecasters are tracking another coastal storm with the potential for snowfall in Virginia and West Virginia on today into Monday. Both the American and European computer models now point to the system moving farther out over the Atlantic, with little impact on the Northeast. But that forecast could change. No fierce storms are expected for Northeastern states late Friday or Saturday, CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward said. A few snow showers are expected for the interior portions of New York and New England. Areas closer to the coast that were hit the hardest with the last storm won’t see any snow this weekend, Ward said. The new coastal storm threat comes after the second nor’easter in a week left at least one person dead, while hundreds of thousands of homes on the East Coast remained without electricity. As of Saturday morning, 172,931 customers are without power from
nation Gunman and victims identified in standoff at veterans home
A gunman and three female hostages were found dead at a military veterans home in Northern California on Friday night, officials said, a grim end to a standoff that lasted nearly eight hours. Shortly before 6 p.m., officers stormed into the room where the gunman had held the hostages at the Veterans Home of California in Yountville, said Chris Childs with the California Highway Patrol. They found the gunman and the three hostages dead, he said. The coroner’s office identified the victims as Christine Loeber, 48; Jennifer Golick, 42; and Jennifer Gonzales, 29. “This is a tragic piece of news, one that we were really hoping we wouldn’t have to come before the public to give,” Childs said. Before officers entered the room, hostage negotiators spent hours trying to contact the gunman, who was a former client at The Pathway Home. Authorities identified him as Albert Wong, 36, of Sacramento.

Kentucky to Maine after the region’s second major storm whipped the area with heavy snow and stiff winds, downing power lines and leaving precarious road conditions. Boston recorded 6 inches of snow Thursday, while parts of northwestern Massachusetts saw up to 24 inches, the National Weather Service said. The storm was less severe than last weekend’s “bomb cyclone,” which left at least six people dead. The storm dumped heavy, wet snow at an intense rate in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and southern New England, especially west of Interstate 95, with
accumulations of 2 feet or more reported in some areas. Police attributed at least one death to the storm: Barbara Soleski, 88, died after a tree fell and struck her Wednesday evening in the village of Suffern in southern New York, police said. Another storm-related tragedy occurred Thursday morning when a woman who was shoveling snow in her driveway died after her husband accidentally backed over her with a vehicle, according to police in Pequannock Township, N.J. In Franklin Lakes, N.J., a man died in a vehicle that
police said was engulfed in flames while a live power line was on the roadway near it. It’s unclear if the death, which is under investigation, was directly caused by the storm. Winds and snow brought down plenty of power lines, piling on to the crippling outages remaining from last weekend. The storm packed gusts of 30 to 50 mph — a far cry from the 90 mph gusts recorded during the weekend storm — with damaging effects. Some communities outside Philadelphia, such as Rosemont and Wrightstown Township, recorded more
People Oprah: Parkland activists remind her of civil rights movement icons
Oprah Winfrey says she was inspired to help the survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting as they fight for stronger gun control because their dedication reminded her of the civil rights movement. “The fact that they were creating this national march to say, ‘enough’ … what it takes to risk that on a national level is what I responded to,” Winfrey said to CNN’s Van Jones on “The Van Jones Show,” which airs at 8 p.m. tonight on CNN. Winfrey announced last month she was donating $500,000 to the March for Our Lives, March 24 demonstration in Washington planned by survivors of last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people dead. Winfrey told Jones that it was the Parkland activists’ strength and confidence in taking their cause public that reminded her of those who fought against racial injustice in the 1950s and ’60s. The teenagers’ bravery, she said, resonated with her, given some of the sacrifices her family made during the civil rights era. “My grandfather took in people from the Freedom Riders in Mississippi and risked his whole family and home. Because if people found out that he was keeping the Freedom Riders in his house? You know, he would have been gone,” she told Jones.

Hours after the Facebook deal was announced, Twitter announced its own plans for a three-year with Major League Soccer to stream two dozen live matches as well as highlights. The dueling announcements highlight the emerging arms race in the tech industry to lure users with live streaming sports events. Tech companies are willing to spend tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars on this effort.
The NFL partnered with Twitter to stream 10 Thursday Night Football games in 2016 for a reported $10 million. The next year, the NFL struck a similar $50 million streaming deal with Amazon. Facebook previously bid $600 million for the global TV and digital rights to stream cricket games from India’s Premier League for five years. But it was beat out by Star India, owned by 21st Century Fox.

Camp Caglewood helps those with disabilities have adventures By Isabel Hughes email@example.com
aul Freeman glared playfully at Justin Luke, eyeing his orange shirt. “Justin is a Tennessee fan and I am a fan of whoever is playing against Tennessee,” Freeman said. “He wears orange all the time just to mess with me.” Sitting in a corner nook in Lawrenceville’s Boulder Creek Coffee, Justin and his parents, Charles and Linda Luke, laughed at the age-old rivalry. Growing up together at Cannon United Methodist Church, Freeman and Justin, who are both in their 30s, have known each other since they were boys. Though their paths
diverged for a number of years, for the last 15 years, the two have been reunited — as friends, adventurers and teachers to one another. Justin, who has special needs, is a participant at Freeman’s Camp Caglewood, which the Brookwood High School graduate and his wife, Jessica, founded in 2001. The program, which recently celebrated its 15th anniversary, is designed for people with developmental disabilities and offers various adventures each year, which have included trips to SeaWorld, Georgia’s Rock City, the Bahamas and dozens of other locations.

Four adventures for this year were recently announced — a Stone Mountain Park trip in September, a Dollywood trip in July, a Gwinnett Stripers game in June and a Twin Cedar Riding Center excursion in April — which are targeted for campers age 12 to 60. While the trips are designed for children and adults with special needs, they are also very intentionally aimed at providing a respite for
Trips the parents and caregivers of the children and adults with disabilities. “For the campers, we want it to be something that is an experience that they wouldn’t normally be able to do but allow them to realize that they can do it and expand their independence,” Freeman said. “But also, there’s a lot of added stress on the families that have children or spouses or anybody that has a special need or a medical need or a
disability of any kind. Families end in divorce five times as much and there’s an immense guilt, at times, that’s undue, but as parents, if you need that time and your other children need that time and there aren’t good choices, you have a tough choice to make.” As children with special needs get older, too, there are less and less options for them, Linda Luke said. “For (Justin’s) age, it’s hard to find things,” she
said. “Once they get out of high school, it’s more difficult. We look forward to the trips — I let Justin check the schedule and he picks whichever ones he wants and then (my husband and I) figure, ‘OK, there’s one weekend we have for us.’ Those weekends, we try to do something ourselves. But it’s also a respite (for Justin) from us as much as it is a respite for us.” That respite is necessary for all parties, Charles Luke said. “It helps with Justin’s independence and his mindset and it’s helpful for ours,” he said. “There are some strong numbers for couples with children with disabilities — we were told four out of five (marriages) end in divorce, and that was 30-plus years ago. I don’t know what it is now, but that has always resonated

with me.” Freeman said Camp Caglewood is different from many other respite programs for exactly that reason. “When parents put their children in a respite care program that is not excellent, they feel like they failed, which can cause (more problems),” he said. “Our program is ten times better than anything that anybody
else is doing because we’re providing education, we’re providing an unbelievable experience — mainstream children and adults often don’t even get these experiences — and so a program like ours removes that (guilt) barrier. People can not only feel OK with the respite part, but feel good about providing their loved one with an experience that is amazing.” Smiling, Justin nodded, adding that SeaWorld was one of his most memorable trips. “We enjoy our time but I also can’t wait to hear what kind of time they had,” Linda said. “They come with all kinds of artwork and stories….” “And secrets about Paul,” Charles said. Once again laughing, Freeman looked fondly at the Lukes. “Justin is literally one of the greatest people I know,” he said, “even though he likes Tennessee; that’s his only fault. Justin and the other campers — and I’m going to get choked up — they are my best friends, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I have a few good friends, but with this group, we share, we laugh and we poke fun. But that’s what it is — it’s the sense of family.” For more information about Camp Caglewood, visit caglewood. org/15for15.

Brookwood students work with GGC athletics Members of Brookwood High School’s intro to sports and entertainment marketing class got a chance to apply some skills they learned in the classroom to a real life project with local educational institute Georgia Gwinnett College. “I knew that once the students knew the basic principles of marketing, a great way to apply the skills would be through a real world experience,” Brookwood teacher Brett Huckle said. “I reached out to a few places, but I didn’t know if they would respond back out to us.” In the fall, GGC assistant athletic director Ned Colgrove contacted Huckle to discuss how they could work together to put together something that would help the students. What initially began as a visit from Colgrove to speak to Huckle’s students transformed into a project that would benefit both parties. “I didn’t know what I was going to get out of the relationship and he didn’t

Trevor McNaboe know either,” Huckle said. “Talking back and forth, we decided to have our class create a marketing plan for the college’s spring sports.” All three of Huckle’s classes were tasked with creating a marketing plan that would increase both awareness on the school’s digital platform and attendance of GGC’s baseball and softball teams. To help the group of 90 students making up the three classes, Colgrove spoke to the different groups and gave information on the founding of the GGC athletic department and details they could use to enhance their marketing plan.
local Gwinnett recreation and youth athletic programs by planning special youth nights for games. Huckle said some ideas the group presented are already being enacted by the athletic department. “What excited the students most about this was that if their plan was good enough, they could actually see the results of their work,” Huckle said. “Just them knowing they could be driving along and see some of their work on a Georgia Gwinnett College’s assistant athletic director Ned billboard along (Ga.

The enduring trouble with men and their machines It’s been a few years since I shared the story of Tink and the riding mower, but I’ll remind you what happened, so I can segue into another story of a man and a riding mower. We were newly married when Tink came home from an errand and found me cutting grass with a Bush Hogbrand, zero turn mower. I’ve been cutting grass since I was 11 when Daddy proudly brought home a fancy blue Sears Roebuck riding mower that even had headlights and lasted 20 years. Instantly, Tink wanted to
Ronda Rich take up cutting grass. I don’t know that he had ever cut grass with a riding mower. He came from Los Angeles where he hired someone. I was skeptical about it because, as you probably know, the zero turns (the
mowers with handles, not steering wheel) take a little getting used to. He persisted, so I showed him how. “Go over to the side and practice on level ground,” I said. “And whatever you do, don’t try that embankment. It has to be done with a weed eater. It’s very dangerous.” I started back into the house when I had a sudden, sinking feeling. I turned to look at him and wanted to stop him but, not wanting to damage his ego, I swallowed the words. Then, I prayed that God Almighty would keep him safe. I went down
into the front pasture to spray thistle, the bane of my existence. The mower had not been running 15 minutes since I’d left Tink that I heard a thunderous commotion and saw Mississippi the cat running for his life. Then, silence. No running mower. He wasn’t hurt, but he had learned a powerful lesson. As soon as I was out of sight, he went for the embankment, lost control, went flying down the hill, jumped the rock wall (breaking off a piece) and flipped the mower. My prayer, I am sure, had saved him. He always says that he was so scared of me that, with a rush of adrenaline, he lifted the huge mower and righted it before I got there. Kabe Cain, who sells us all our outdoor equipment, always stresses safety. When he delivered a new tractor, he said, “Miss Ronda, always wear your seat belt. If you do and the tractor turns over,
you’ll get bumped up, but you won’t get killed.” Before I ever turn the key on the tractor, I have my seat belt on. It’s the first thing I do. When Rodney, my beloved brother-in-law, came to teach me how to Bush Hog the pasture with the tractor, he took off without his seat belt. I gave him a big lecture on that, which he ignored. I kept having a premonition about the Bush Hog mower turning over with someone on it. Maybe me. So we bought a commercial mower with a roll bar and seat belt. Again, Kabe said, “Always wear your seat belt.” And I do. The original mower, the one Tink wrecked, we took down to Mama’s house where a friend was staying for a while. His duty was to cut the grass. Mama’s yard is level, so I felt that was safe, but still I cautioned, “Don’t use the mower to cut that
little embankment near the road. Use the Weed Eater.” I think I said this three to five times. I don’t know what it is about men, machines and me. No one listens. Sure enough, our friend turned over the mower and got trapped. He was banged up and had a broken finger but, by God’s grace, not seriously injured. “Did you tell him, ‘I told you so?’” Rodney asked. I shook my head. “No.” Rodney smiled broadly, thinking wrongly that I had learned better. “That’s good,” he said with nodding approval. I smiled back ever-sosweetly. “But I’m going to,” I winked, “just as soon his finger heals.” Ronda Rich is the bestselling author of “There’s A Better Day A-Comin’.” Visit www.rondarich.com to sign up for her free weekly newsletter.

How does a company go bankrupt? Slowly at first, then really, really fast. It’s exactly the same way individuals go broke — gradually, then really quickly. Unfortunately, people often miss the early warning signs. In my experience, it’s often because they’re focused on lots of numbers, instead of just a few. Here are two examples: Example No. 1 — Dashboard inertia I was working with a client who was trying to dramatically increase new business. Current sales were up, but their sales dashboard, the system they used to measure sales activity, was starting to show a few pockets of yellow. For those unfamiliar with a dashboard, green means the numbers are all OK, yellow means danger zone, red means things are about to go off the rails. This client’s dashboard tracked 20 different activities. The ones measuring prospecting were starting to go yellow. But the sales team didn’t seem concerned. They kept talking about all the deals they had in the pipeline. Every day they were getting little pings of yellow on their dashboard, but they pretty much ignored them. It’s not uncommon for employees to ignore company-created measuring systems. The more complex the system, the more likely people are to ignore it. I knew it was time for a yellow pad exercise. I had the VP of sales ask each

bestbets SUNDAY 10:01 p.m. on ABC Deception Magic is very much on the menu in this new drama series, as Jack Cutmore-Scott (“Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life”) plays a superstar illusionist who has a major fall from grace. He then uses his skills to help FBI agents (Amaury Nolasco, Laila Robins) capture particularly evasive criminals. Vinnie Jones and Lenora Crichlow also star in the show, created by Chris Fedak (“Chuck”) and also including Greg Berlanti and Martin Gero
(“Blindspot”) among its executive producers.
facility — and also for many people in the surrounding community. Developed by producer Jason Katims (“Parenthood,” “Friday Night Lights”), the show also features Auli’i Cravalho (“Moana”), Rosie Perez and Marley Shelton in its “Pilot.”
MONDAY 8 p.m. on FOX Lucifer Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and company get to experience what it’s like to be at the center of superstardom in the new episode “Let Pinhead Sing!”. Protecting a hugely popular, threatened music star means dealing with all sorts of personalities — and obsessive fans, one or more of whom could prove lethal. Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) attempts to bring Linda and Maze (Rachael Harris, Lesley-Anne Brandt) back together. Jacqueline Obradors continues her guest role. DB Woodside also stars. 9 p.m. on CW iZombie Liv (Rose McIver) has love on the brain — in an extremely literal way — in the new episode “Brainless in Seattle, Part 1,” as her probe of a very romantic person’s murder makes her prone to meddle in others’ relationships, to Clive’s (Malcolm Goodwin) particular discomfort. Liv and Major (Robert Buckley)
WEDNESDAY Tom Ellis continue to try to resolve their shared troubles. Blaine (David Anders) gets an offer. Rahul Kohli, Aly Michalka and Robert Knepper also star.
TUESDAY 10:01 p.m. on NBC Rise Comparisons to “Glee” are inevitable, but it should be noted that this grittier drama is based on a true story. Josh Radnor (“How I Met Your Mother”) has the central role as a teacher who becomes the supervisor of his school’s theater department in the series’ premiere, portending big changes for the
8 p.m. on NBC The Blacklist As her sessions with her therapist (guest star Martha Plimpton) continue, Liz (Megan Boone) delves back into her earlier days as a profiler in the new episode “The Capricorn Killer.” An FBI case that went cold haunts her anew as fresh information surfaces. Red (James Spader) tackles his pursuit of Ian Garvey (guest star Jonny Coyne) from a different angle. The Task Force zeroes in on those responsible for Tom’s death. Harry Lennix also stars.
THURSDAY 10 p.m. on ABC How to Get Away With Murder The title of the show’s fourthseason finale is “Nobody Else
Is Dying,” but don’t bet on that being the fact — especially since a death and the resulting arrest fuel the story, written by series creator Pete Nowalk. The shocks and surprises don’t end there for Annalise (Viola Davis) and her proteges, either. Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Karla Souza, Liza Weil and Charlie Weber also star.
FRIDAY 8 p.m. on CW Dynasty Fallon’s (Elizabeth Gillies) painful discovery that Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) proposed to her for reasons of revenge, not romance, is compounded by her realization that she’s stuck in this phony engagement until she can figure out how to protect her family from becoming victims of the Carrington-Colby feud in the new episode “Our Turn Now.” Meanwhile, Sam (Rafael de la Fuente) mounts a double-pronged crusade to win Steven’s (James Mackay) love and become a U.S. citizen. Nathalie Kelley also stars.
Saturday Night Live It’s always a special occasion whenever a former regular on this show returns to it as a host, and “SNL” alum Bill Hader fills that role for the second time with this new episode. He has a new project to promote: “Barry,” an upcoming HBO comedy series on which he fills many of the key jobs — including playing the title character. The band Arcade Fire is in the musical-guest slot for the fourth time

your community: city by city
City by City is a weekly look at the happenings in the places you call home more from gwinnett
AUBURN Library to host Easter egg hunt The Auburn Public Library will host an Eggcellent Egg Hunt at 2 p.m. March 31 for children up to 10 years old. The event will take place at the library, located at 24 5th St. in Auburn. Those who attend can participate in the egg hunt, make crafts and play games. Children must be accompanied by a caregiver. The city of Auburn and the Whistlestop Shops are sponsoring the event in conjunction with the library. BARROW COUNTY Winder seeking input on redevelopment The city of Winder will host a public forum for residents to provide feedback on a redevelopment proposal that would turn a section of North Jackson Street into a gathering space. The public is invited to give input at the meeting at 6:30 p.m. March 20 at the Winder Community Center, 113 E. Athens St. The redevelopment proposal involves closing North Jackson Street between Midland Avenue and East Candler Street to traffic and turning it into a pedestrian gathering area, according to a public notice.

PEACHTREE CORNERS City receives award for budget preparation The Government Finance Officers Association recently announced that the city of Peachtree Corners has been honored with the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award in recognition of outstanding budget preparation. The award represents a significant achievement by the city’s Finance Department and its finance director and reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff in meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting, according to a news release. “This award is significant because it marks the first time we have submitted our budget materials to GFOA for consideration,” City Manager Brian Johnson said. “This award also illustrates the city’s commitment to communications in the budgeting process. We are dedicated to fiscal responsibility at every level and this award proves our commitment.” To receive the budget award, the city had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well a city’s budget serves as a policy document; a financial plan; an operations guide; and as a communications device. Budget documents must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and in the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award. “We are delighted to receive this important award, which validates Peachtree Corners’ commitment to responsible and successful budgeting,” Finance Director Brandon Branham said. “We strive for excellence in all financial matters and appreciate this national recognition for our ongoing efforts.” SNELLVILLE Civic Dinners bring together residents, politicians for talk There has been a group of residents and politicos meeting in Snellville City Hall peri-
odically for discussion about issues facing the region. The dinners, an initiative of the Atlanta Regional Commission, have brought policy discussion off the floors of Congress, the statehouse and council chambers and into a casual environment where talk is less formal — though it is summarized and sent to the ARC for review and to use to refine future plans. It’s the type of environment where you’ll find congressmen passing the salt to a probation clerk. Free from the confines of bureaucracy, the group tackles issues of the day, such as the recent discussion of transportation in metro Atlanta. If you’d like to be a part of future Civic Dinners, email City Councilman Dave Emanuel at demanuel@ snellville.org. SUGAR HILL Brenau University loans exhibit to Sugar Hill Post-War Modernists are coming to the Sugar Hill Gallery, thanks to a loan from the Brenau University Permanent Art Collection.

The exhibit will open with a reception on March 29 and run through May 11. The Sugar Hill Gallery is located at 5089 W. Broad St. SUWANEE Young Musicians in the Park to debut in Town Center Young Musicians in the Park, an event created by local high school students and members of the Tri-M Music Honor Society, will debut at 5 p.m. March 24 in Suwanee Town Center Park, 330 Town Center Ave. The event will showcase the talents of high school musicians. Proceeds will go to the Give a Note Foundation, created to strengthen music education opportunities for students across the country. The foundation works to secure resources to support programs and initiatives that provide music education opportunities to all children.

Libraries hosting Centerville, Sugar Hill history programs BY CURT YEOMANS
Ever wanted to know why the Centerville area was once known as Sneezer, or how Sugar Hill got its name? Gwinnett County libraries will host programs on the histories of the Centerville and Sugar Hill communities this week, offering residents a chance to maybe get
answers to the name questions. Both history programs are free for Gwinnett County residents, or anyone else who loves history, to attend. The programs are being held this year to celebrate Gwinnett County’s bicentennial, which has been turned into a yearlong celebration with events centered around historical themes being held each week. The program on Cen-
terville history — yes, it really was once called Sneezer — will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Centerville library branch. Meanwhile, the program on
Sugar Hill history will take place Wednesday at the Buford library branch. During the Centerville program, attendees will get to walk through an exhibit of the community’s early landmarks, buildings and residents. Afterward, former Loganville Mayor Dan Curry and historian Terry Freeman will lead a talk about the history of the community, which is located near Snellville, and discuss its
growth over the years. While Centerville remained an unincorporated community, Sugar Hill took a different approach and became an incorporated city in 1939. City Councilman Brandon Hembree will lead the program on the city’s history, focusing on its history and development, at the Buford library branch. Although it was not incorporated as a city until the later years of the
Didn’t get your dream school? Take heart For many high school seniors and their families, fall is easily the most stressful time of year, as already-overworked students struggle frantically to complete their college applications while parents nag them — I mean encourage them — along. But February is the second-most stressful time, as all anxiously await the verdicts. This drama can become especially poignant in affluent areas like Gwinnett County, home to herds of high achievers and even higher expectations. Too many young people seem convinced that, if they don’t get into their “dream school,” life is basically over. Unfortunately, too many of their parents evidently believe this, too, which doesn’t exactly help reduce the stress. Yet the very nature of “dream schools,” the colleges lots of kids want to attend, is that they’re elite. Not everyone can get in. Actually, most people can’t get in. That’s what
Rob Jenkins makes them elite. That’s why they’re a dream school, with the emphasis on “dream.” Hence, every year around this time, after acceptance letters hit suburban mailboxes, thousands of bright, capable young people must deal with the pain of rejection. Many feel adrift, as if their lives have become pointless, because everyone knows they’ll never be successful without that degree from Elite U. Right? Wrong. In 35 years of professional life, as a professor, administrator and consultant, I have never observed that to be true. Perhaps there are advantages to attending a
college in the very top tier — such as rooming with a senator’s daughter — but beyond that, the differences between, say, the second tier and the fourth tier simply aren’t that significant. Sure, UGA and Georgia Tech are great schools. So is Georgia State. But you know what? There’s not a thing wrong with Kennesaw State. Or West Georgia. Or Georgia Southern. Or a host of other state schools (read “in-state tuition”) that offer students a quality educational experience and the opportunity to pursue their dreams. The most successful person I know, a highranking muckety-muck with one of the world’s most admired corporations, got his degree from Kennesaw State. Now he makes so much money he can almost afford to live in Cupertino, Calif. Of course, if you didn’t get into the school you want this first go-round, you can always put in a year or two at a place like
Great Depression, Sugar Hill had existed as a community long before that. U.S. Census Bureau records make references to there being a community named Sugar Hill as early as the 1870 census. The Centerville library branch is located at 3025 Bethany Church Road in Snellville. The Buford library branch is located at 2100 Buford Highway in Buford.
PET OF THE WEEK
Georgia Gwinnett College or one of the GSU-Perimeter campuses. Work hard, make good grades, then try again. The chances are pretty good you’ll be able to transfer. Ultimately, though, your success in life will have less to do with the college you attend than with two other factors: what you major in (preferably not something with the word “studies” in it) and how well you do, grade-wise. So no, your life isn’t over just because Elite U said no thanks. You’re 18. Your life is just beginning. What you do with it from this point on is entirely up to you. Rob Jenkins is a local freelance writer and college professor. He is the author of four books, including “Welcome to My Classroom” and “Family Man: The Art of Surviving Domestic Tranquility,” available at Books for Less in Buford and on Amazon. The views expressed here are his own. Email Rob at email@example.com.
Each week the Gwinnett Daily Post will feature an animal available for adoption at the Georgia SPCA, which is located at 1175 Buford Highway, Suite 109, Suwanee, GA 30024. The hours of operation are Mondays through Fridays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays 1 to 4 p.m. You can see the rest of the adoptable cats and dogs at www. georgiaspca.org. This delightful 2-year-old is named Rosie. She’s a real sweetheart and loves to be petted from head to toe. Rosie is a gentle soul and will be a warm cuddle buddy for a lucky family. She loves napping in the windows on the cat tree in our free roam room. Rosie has been fully vetted — spayed, disease tested, dewomed and microchipped — and she would love to go home with you today. She also comes with 30 days of Pet Emergency insurance. If you are interested in seeing any of the pets up for adoption, visit the GA SPCA, located at 1175 Buford Highway, Suite 109, in Suwanee, or call at 678-7652726.
