  • Whether its the 1999 massacre at a Colorado high school, the 2007 murders on the Virginia Tech campus or the senseless 2016 shooting of partiers at the Pulse Night Club and all the horrific scenes in between we continue to add to the sad roll call of cities struck by…
  • Yes, some right-minded gun owners have saved lives, but the mass shootings outnumber those heroic instances.
  • Surveys consistently show that most Americans including gun owners and NRA members support limiting access to guns for people with mental illnesses and individuals who are on the federal no-fly or watch lists.
  • The League of Women Voters recently convened a panel to illuminate the issues and explain the work of its Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, formed after the Pulse shootings in 2016.
  • Groups like the coalition and Moms Demand Action have played defense in Tallahassee, fighting against laws that would allow for open carry around the state, and allow guns, with concealed and carry permits, on schools and college campuses.

  • The good news from Saturday is that the Lightning won, beating the Kings 4-3 at Amalie Arena.
  • Los Angeles dominated the third period, outshooting the Lightning 20-4, rallying from a three-goal deficit to make it one.
  • That’s the third time in the past two weeks the Lightning has faded in the third period, including almost blowing a large lead Feb. 4 in Vancouver.
  • What makes us a team that can learn is, we can make plays, but there’s a time when you stop making plays and lock a game down, coach Jon Cooper said.
  • The Lightning did find a way to win, and extend its lead in the Atlantic Division to five points over the Bruins, which lost Saturday.

  • The 6-foot junior from Latvia scored a career-high 41 points hitting eight of 13 3-pointers to lead the Bulls to a nationally televised 84-65 embarrassment of No. 13 Ohio State before an announced Sun Dome crowd of 2,852.
  • She drained the game’s first shot a 3-pointer and had 18 points after one quarter, by which time the Bulls had built a 31-13 lead.
  • Meantime, the Bulls mostly neutralized Buckeyes senior guard Kelsey Mitchell, the NCAA’s career leader in 3-pointers and Big Ten’s all-time scoring leader.
  • Guarded primarily by 5-foot-11 veteran Laura Ferreira, Mitchell finished with 19 points more than five below her season average and hit only two of eight 3-pointers.
  • We don’t win without (Ferreira), said Bulls senior Maria Jespersen, who notched her 13th double-double of the season (20 points, 14 rebounds).

  • We know this flu season is worse than normal, and when one fill-in nurse at University Hospitals said she was too sick to work two times over the course of a few days, it violated hospital policy.
  • That led to another sick day, opening her up to being fired because of UHs policy that temporary nurses called PRNs, like Theresa, may be dismissed after two non-approved absences over 60-days.
  • UH has a no-faultattendance policy, where the hospital says notes from a physician do not excuse an occurrence of absence.
  • The policy says only approved leaves of absence, workplace illnesses or injuries, scheduled paid time offlike vacation time or doctors appointmentsor jury duty or bereavement leave are considered excused.
  • That means even Theresas note from her own doctor saying she shouldnt interact with people who are already sick wasnt enough.
