• Over the past year, as the Tampa Bay Times and Sarasota Herald-Tribune investigated injuries at six of the state's primary mental institutions, officials repeatedly denied reporters information. In some cases, they used their power to classify fatalities as natural or accidental even though employee mistakes or neglect contributed to the deaths. In others, they cited a law that experts say was designed to crack down on abusers, but now protects them. Read Part 2 of the Times/Herald investigation, Shrouded in secrecy, today online and in print editions.

• Jeb Bush will be at the Tampa Garden Club this morning for a campaign rally at 10 a.m., followed by stops in Orlando and Jacksonville later in the day. Follow Times reporter Steve Contorno on Twitter at @scontorno for coverage of the Tampa rally and Times/Herald reporter Kristen M. Clark at @ByKristenMClark for news from the Orlando stop.

• President Barack Obama today visits Newark, N.J., to mark the release of thousands of federal prisoners who are benefiting from a reduction in drug sentences.
