Overstreets order stated that Wilsons defense team, Lisa Anderson and James Dowgul, attempted to circumvent the courts authority over the case and concluded that in doing so, they violated Floridas crimi-nal procedures.Accordingly, defense counsel shall be required to show cause as to why sanc-tions should not be imposed,Ž Overstreet wrote in the order.Overstreet denies subpoenas Greg Wilsons attorneys could face penalties, charges Wilson Hess Ford Andres Pinera tosses a piece of metal from what was once the home where he lived with his father, Jose Lima.

When she was 12 and living with her mom in Telogia, their home had burned to the ground, changing the cir-cumstances of her life for years to come.I know how this feels like,Ž she said, I know exactly how they feel.ŽAs the two women sorted their contributions into the cor-rect stacks at the fire house, now over half filled with everything from diapers to toothbrushes to fidget spinners, Sellers had to ask, Do you guys have an overabundance of stuff?ŽThats without her having seen the cafeteria at the former Carrabelle High School at the other end of the county, which also is almost filled, along with two other classrooms.Right now, were focusing on things you would need to establish your house, pots and pans and utilitarian furni-ture, table and chairs to eat at,Ž said Joe Taylor, director of the Franklins Promise Coalition, the long-term recovery organi-zation designated by the county emergency management office.He said once permanent housing is secured, people will need such large, durable goods as washers and dryers, micro-waves and other appliances, as well as beds and mattresses.All that burned up,Ž he said. We had one company out of Tallahassee donate all new linens and pillows for 40 households.ŽClothing is pretty well stocked now at the Eastpoint United Methodist Church, but there remains a need for some targeted items, as the full-scale clean-up begins Monday.Leather work gloves, dust masks, first aid kits, men's work socks and work boots, and heavy duty garbage bags are all in demand.Washing powder has been a big thing,Ž Taylor said. Every-thing smells like smoke.ŽOver the weekend, the American Red Cross shut down its outreach at the Eastpoint Church of God, having shel-tered about 50 evacuated people the night of the fires, when no one knew for sure whether their home had been spared.After that, they gave out $95 vouchers for emergency needs, but had plenty of vacancies at the shelter, with displaced people mostly taken in by nearby relatives and friends.You go out to Ridge and Wil-derness roads right now youll see people living on their home sites where theres no longer a home. Thats how strong they are,Ž said Sheriff A.J. Smith. They are not going to leave. You try to get them to go to a shelter and they wont go.Thats the kind of fortitude and the kind of determination and the kind of 'get er done' attitude they have,Ž he said.The sheriffs GoFundMe account, which is raising money entirely for future housing needs, had raised more than $95,000 as of Saturday night.Everybodys doing everything they can,Ž Smith said. Were getting outreach from other counties, other states.ŽFunds also have been flowing in directly to the county, with Billy Collins, community rela-tions manager for Duke Energy, presenting a check for $25,000 from the company on Friday.Duke crews had restored power to all the area properties by Monday evening, with the exception of those places where it would be pointless until the land is cleared of scorched debris beginning Monday morning. The county plans to use its road crews to assist in debris removal and land clearing, but property owners must first file releasefrom-liability paperwork with the county, which normally doesnt allow its crews to do work on private property.For short-term housing, the First Baptist Church of St. George Islands Christian Retreat Center has made seven of its cabins available for hous-ing next week. The Florida Division of Emergency Man-agement said it is coordinating with private sector partners including Airbnb to identify possible housing for affected families.Chase Landry, star of the TV show "Swamp People" and close friends with the Ward family, which owns 13 Mile Seafood in Apalachicola, served up a crawfish boil Friday night at the First Baptist Church for the fire victims. The Salvation Army brought in a a food trailer, and has been cooking hot meals that Jennifer Daniels, emergency managements special needs coordinator, has been delivering three times daily to a loop she drives on Ridge and Wilderness roads, Buck Street and Bear Creek Road, where the fire raged from about 4 p.m. late into the night. Along that route are portable toilets that Mize Plumbing Services in Port St. Joe brought in and installed, at no cost. The Salvation Army brought in a truck for showers, but they werent used very much at all. People instead went to where they felt more at home, the First Baptist Church. That church, which long has handled the food pantry needs in East-point on Saturdays, is now open every day.Some of the churches have done their own programs,Ž Taylor said. One church that has reached out is Tallahassees Bethel Missionary Church, which is pastored by the Rev. R.B. Holmes Jr., who also owns WOCY radio in Eastpoint.That church and radio station, in partnership with Tallahassee Memorial Health-Care and Prime Meridian Bank in Tallahassee, on Thursday launched the Love 36 campaign, through which Holmes is appealing for other faithbased groups, businesses and individuals to adopt one of the 36 families who lost their homes for the next 36 months. With the presentation of a check for $1,000, Bethel Missionary made tangible its commitment to follow the family of Joe and Becky Banks for the next 36 months, to see them through to a new place to live.We know that the government is going to do things,Ž Holmes said. The faith com-munity must do our part.ŽThe pastor said the church had learned that the Banks son Bill was instrumental in offering help the night of the fire.He rides a bicycle, but he was out working, while his own beloved family was losing their home,Ž said Holmes. They all said this young man is a hero, and we said This is a family we want to adopt.This is my new family, and this Love 36 will walk them for 36 months,Ž he said. Were going to make sure theyll be whole.ŽGov. Rick Scott, who has visited the fire victims, has not issued an emergency declaration, but has said he will consider that option in the future.In general, executive orders are issued by the governor in anticipation of an emergency or disaster where the recovery could exceed the states ability to respond, or where an extraordinary amount of coor-dination is needed between various government agen-cies,Ž his office wrote in a press release.One solid chunk of financial help for those affected, most of whom lack homeowners or renters insurance, has come from the Florida Department of Financial Services. Chief Financial Officer and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis has deployed insurance experts to assist with navigat-ing the insurance claims-filing process, as well as adjusters to assist residents with filing a partial settlement claim for up to $5,000 per household for emergency living expenses, such as temporary housing, clothing, food or pet care.Residents have been asked to bring proof of residency, which can be done by showing a utility bill sent in their name to the property. But Duke officials have been limited in establishing resi-dency for others who may have been living in campers on a property, which zoning laws do not allow, or in a building that did not have electrical service billed to it. As of Friday, Prop-erty Appraiser Rhonda Skipper has estimated real estate losses were about $800,000, with another $900,000 in losses of personal property, such as cars, trucks, boats and motorcycles.The promise of future funds is also being offered in the form of a sales pitch from a bevy of law firms that were down in the county as early as Thursday morning to see who they could attract as clients.Some people, like Glenn Woodall, signed right up, while others, like neighbor Bill Hatte-way, held their horses."We ain't signing nothin' till we're good and ready," said Jimmy Boone Sr., as he stood next to the ruins of his home and vehicles, all destroyed in the blaze. DONATIONSFrom Page A1The Gulf County units would remain on the front lines for almost four hours, until roughly 2:30 a.m. ET, Ford said.They were just glad to see us,Ž he added, referring to the firefighters first on the scene. They had been fighting that fire for five hours.ŽAnd to say fighting would be an apt description. Ford had never seen anything like it and said it was not an easy scene to absorb. The fire, whipped by blustery winds, rav-aged a community, consuming, in total or in portion, 40 homes, countless cars and boats, and leaving nearly 140 homeless, complete devastation.Ž The fire consumed about 820 acres in mere hours Sunday evening.Eddie Fields, who works with the Christian Community Development Fund, is a resident of Eastpoint and said the fire could have easily spread to his subdivision; according to the Florida Forest Service a mitigation road provided a fire-break.In all, 136 were directly impacted and possibly left homeless. Many escaped, literally, with only the clothes on their backs.The property damage is esti-mated to exceed $800,000.It was more like a movie, a war zone,Ž Ford said. Some of those people got out of there with just the clothes are their back.It was very hard to take. We just tried to help those people the best we could.ŽThe larger community was doing that come daybreak.Coordinated byGulf County Emergency Managementand the Port St. Joe Ministerial Asso-ciation, lists of immediate needs, from water to diapers, was out by late morning. Marshall Nelson, county director of emergency management, said one trailer full of goods was taken over Monday, including emergency meals.We have had an amazing response,Ž Nelson said.Collections continued to pour in from across the region, so many that the county has requested a pause to re-evaluate what is needed.Businesses and civic organi-zations also joined the effort by Monday afternoon and there were a host of local initiatives to aid the drive to assist."We appreciate the people of Gulf County for their generosity," said Ben Guthrie of Gulf County Emergency Management.

** A4 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Brian WitteThe Associated PressANNAPOLIS, Md. „ The historic state capital of Annapolis is draped in grief from a shooting attack on the local newspaper, which killed journalists who chronicled soccer games, art exhibits and the fabric of small-city life.A sign outside The Annapo-lis Bookstore, a block from the Maryland State House, starkly expresses the depth of sorrow many are feeling in this quaint waterside capital of about 40,000 near the Chesapeake Bay. There are no words,Ž it says.With its weekly sailboat races and picturesque downtown, residents were settling into summers languid rhythms when the shooting shattered the usual tranquil-ity. In a quiet town where the incoming class of the U.S. Naval Academy just arrived this week and residents take pride in a rich colonial legacy, the shooting at The Capital that claimed five lives opens a new chapter in its long history.It feels so personal,Ž said Mary Adams, who owns The Annapolis Bookstore and knew two of the victims. It has shifted our community, and maybe its made us more attuned to the fact that we are all in this together.ŽAdams knew Wendi Winters, the papers special projects editor. They met years ago at a Harry Potter night at another bookstore in town. She also knew assistant managing editor Rob Hiaasen, also among the dead. The others killed in Thursdays rampage were editorial page editor Gerald Fischman, reporter John McNamara and sales assistant Rebecca Smith.Im just so sad that this happened to ... the people and their families,Ž Adams said. Theyre all good people just trying to support a local newspaper, and now everyone is wondering how could this have happened.ŽJarrod W. Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder. Authori-ties say he had a longtime grudge against the paper, suing it in 2012 for an article it ran about him pleading guilty to harassing a woman. A judge later threw it out as groundless. In past years, Ramos repeatedly targeted staffers with angry, profanity-laced tweets. Designed more for an age of horses and buggies than SUVs, Annapolis has a baroque street plan of downtown traffic cir-cles and diagonal streets that can make it feel distant from modern times. For some, that sense of withdrawal made Thursdays tragedy all the more shocking.Lisa Quina, owner of an interior design studio called Barefoot Dwelling, recently moved from Baltimore „ a city struggling for years to lower a high homicide rate „ in search of a smaller, safer community.One of the considerations for choosing Annapolis was its close-knit nature. I guess its a wakeup call in any community,Ž Quina said. Despite how quaint or how historic, how uncomplicated some of our day-to-day chal-lenges are, we are vulnerable to the worst possible scenario.Ž Caitlin Walls, who works as an assistant interior designer at the shop, said Annapolis has always felt to her like a safe place to be. Its sad its such a growing reality in places that you thought were the safer places,Ž Walls said of the shooting.And for some raised in Annapolis, like New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, the tragedy hits hard even after theyve gone elsewhere. Born in Tennessee, Belichick gradu-ated from Annapolis High in 1970 and has strong ties from when his father was an assis-tant coach at Navy.For my entire life, The Capital has been my hometown newspaper. My family and I have enjoyed special relationships with many great people who have worked for the newspaper,Ž Belichick said. My heart goes out to the victims, their families and the entire Annapolis community.ŽSteve Samaras, who owns Zacharys Jewelers on Main Street near the City Dock, said he attended a vigil Friday night with his 12-year-old niece. He said she already was grappling with consequences of gun vio-lence, because a friend of hers who had moved to Florida had attended Marjory Stone Douglas High School in Park-land, where 17 people died in a shooting in February.She said Uncle Steven, Im scared. What do you tell a 12-year-old kid? What do you tell any child,Ž he said.More than 1,000 people streamed through Annapolis on Friday evening to remem-ber the victims.Samaras has experienced the resilient side of Annapolis first hand. In 2005, the build-ing that housed his business was destroyed by a fire, and he had to relocate. Seven days later, he said, the community made sure he was open at his present location.So, the resilience, the determination that they showed me, thats what were going to see happen here,Ž he said.Small capital draped in grief Mourners stand in silence during a vigil Friday in response to a shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Md. Prosecutors say 38-year-old Jarrod W. Ramos opened “ re Thursday in the newsroom. [PATRICK SEMANSKY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Steve PeoplesThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ For evangelical Christian leaders like Jerry Falwell Jr., this is their political holy grail.Like many religious conservatives in a position to know, the Liberty University president with close ties to the White House suspects that the Supreme Court vacancy President Donald Trump fills in the coming months will ultimately lead to the rever-sal of the landmark abortiona case Roe v. Wade. But instead of celebrating publicly, some evangelical leaders are down-playing their fortune on an issue that has defined their movement for decades.What people dont understand is that if you overturn Roe v. Wade, all that does is give the states the right to decide whether abortion is legal or illegal,Ž Falwell told The Associ-ated Press in an interview. My guess is that thered probably be less than 20 states that would make abortion illegal if given that right.ŽFalwell added: In the 70s, I dont know how many states had abortion illegal before Roe v. Wade, but it wont be near as many this time.ŽThe sentiment, echoed by evangelical leaders across the country this past week, underscores the delicate poli-tics that surround a moment many religious conservatives have longed for. With the retirement of swing vote Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Trump and his Republican allies in the Senate plan to install a conservative justice who could re-define the law of the land on some of the nations most explosive policy debates „ none bigger than abortion.And while these are the very best of times for the religious right, social conservatives risk a powerful backlash from their opponents if they cheer too loudly. Womens groups have already raised the alarm for their constituents, partic-ularly suburban women, who are poised to play an outsized role in the fight for the House majority this November.Two-thirds of Americans do not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, accord-ing to a poll released Friday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. Among women of reproductive age, three out of four want the high court ruling left alone. The poll was conducted before Kennedys retirement was announced.The left is going to try very hard to say this is all about overturning Roe,Ž said John-nie Moore, a Southern Baptist minister who was a co-chair-man of the Trump campaigns evangelical advisory board. The more significant shift on the high court, he said, would likely be the help given to conserva-tives in their fight for what they call religious freedom.Tony Perkins, who leads the socially conservative Family Research Council, said abortion was simply a factorŽ in evangelicals excitement over a more conservative Supreme Court. He suggested that public opinion was already shifting against abortion rights, although thats not true of the Roe v. Wade ruling, which has become slightly more popular over time.Perkins agreed with Moore that the broader push for reli-gious freedom was a bigger conservative focus.Many evangelicals, for exam-ple, have lashed out against Obama-era laws that required churches and other religious institutions to provide their employees with womens reproductive services, includ-ing access to abortion and birth control. Others have rallied behind private business owners who faced legal repercussions after denying services to gay people.Yet sweeping restrictions to abortion rights are certainly on the table, Moore noted.There is a high level of confidence within the com-munity that overturning Roe is actually, finally possible,Ž Moore said. He added: Evan-gelicals have never been more confident in the future of America than they are now. Its just a fact.ŽIn Alabama, Tom Parker, a Republican associate justice on the state Supreme Court who is campaigning to become the states chief justice, explicitly raised the potential of sending cases to Washington that would lead to the overturning of key rulings, including Roe v. Wade.President Trump is just one appointment away from giving us a conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court,Ž Parker said in an interview on the radio program Wallbuilders Live. And they are going to need cases that they can use to reverse those horrible deci-sions of the liberal majority in the past that have undermined the Constitution and really just abused our own personal rights.ŽDespite Trumps struggles with Christian values in his personal life at times, skeptical evangelical Christians lined up behind him in the 2016 election, and they remain one of his most loyal constituencies.The presidents standing with white evangelical Christians hit an all-time high in April when 75 percent of evangelicals held a favorable view of Trump, according to a poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute.The unlikely marriage between the thrice-married president and Christian con-servatives has always been focused on Trumps ability to re-shape the nations judicial branch.On the day she endorsed candidate Trump in March 2016, the late iconic antiabortion activist Phyllis Schlafly first asked him privately whether he would appoint more judges like the conservative Antonin Scalia, recalled Schlaflys successor Ed Martin, who was in the room at the time. Trump promised he would.The president followed through with the appointment of Neil Gorsuch less than a month after his inauguration, delighting religious conservatives nationwide. And the Trump White House, while disorganized in other areas, made its relation-ship with the religious right a priority.The first private White House meeting between evangelical leaders and senior Trump officials came in the days after the Gorsuch nomi-nation, said Moore, who was in attendance. He said the White House has hosted roughly two dozen similar meetings since then in the Eisenhower Execu-tive Office Building adjacent to the White House.A senior administration official such as Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump or Kellyanne Conway „ if not Trump him-self „ has always been present, Moore added. Each meeting featured a detailed briefing on the administrations push to fill judicial openings.The courts have been at the very center of the rela-tionship,Ž Moore said.And now, as the focus shifts toward the presidents next Supreme Court nomination, evangelical leaders who once held their noses and voted for Trump have little doubt he will pick someone who shares their conservative views on abortion, same-sex marriage and other social issues.Falwell insisted only that Trump make his next selection from the list of prospective nominees he released before his election. All are believed to oppose the Roe v. Wade ruling.Any deviation from the list, Falwell said, would be a betrayal.Ž He noted, however, that hes in weekly contact with the White House and has supreme confidence that the president will deliver.This is a vindication for the 80 percent of evangelicals who supported Trump. Many of them voted on this issue alone,Ž Falwell said. Todays a day that we as evangelicals, and really all average Ameri-cans, can say we told you so.ŽPotential reversal is downplayedPresident Donald Trump (right) gives a thumbs up as Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr. (left) watches during commencement ceremonies May 13, 2017, at the school in Lynchburg, Va.

** A6 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldWilsons attorneys now will have to appear in front of Overstreet on July 10 to explain why they should not be penalized. The penalties could range from a warning to the attorneys being held in criminal contempt of court.Wilson, 46, is facing a felony count of introduc-tion of contraband into the Bay County Jail and a misdemeanor count of perjury. Hes accused of helping two inmates pass notes in October and then lying to investigators in a cover-up attempt. Last week, he filed a notice that he would be issuing subpoenas to Hess, Ford and 1st Circuit State Attorney Bill Eddins.In response, prosecu-tor Jack Campbell „ who took over the case after Hess recused himself „ filed a motion to quash the subpoenas, saying Floridas constitutional officers generally are exempt from testifying in cases like this.In the rare case in which the defense believes it has a basis for taking the prosecutors deposition, the defense must first exhaust less intrusive discovery methods, and then makea showing of necessity and materiality, and that the interests of justice require this extraordinary step,Ž Campbell wrote. There is no legitimate purpose to these depositions and the Defense has not even attempted to raise one with the Court. As such, they should be stricken.ŽAfter looking over the subpoenas and the argument against them, Overstreet wrote that Wilsons attorneys did not seek leave of the courtŽ nor arrange an agreement among all parties for taking deposi-tions of the constitutional officers. Both of those violated criminal procedures, Overstreet wrote.Wilson was the sec-ond-in-command at the 14th Judicial Circuit State Attorneys Officer for seven years under Hess. As the primary elections approached in August 2016, Wilson abruptly resigned, saying Hess did not fulfill an agreement to bow out at the end of his second term and hand the office off to Wilson. He then challenged his former boss to be top prosecutor over Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson and Washington counties.At the time, Hess described the election as the most personal of his three contentious elections.Wilson lost his bid for the office, garnering 42 percent of the vote to Hess 52 percent. However, he vowed to make another run for state attorney in 2020 and turned to private practice in the meantime.Months later, though, Wilson became the subject of a BCSO inves-tigation at the Bay County Jail. Authorities captured video of what they believe was Wilson helping two inmates „ sisters Clista Robbins and Christy White „ pass notes, or kites,Ž while meeting with him at separate times within an attorney interview room. When asked, Wilson categorically denied the allegations as abso-lutely falseŽ while under oath. The only thing passed was verbally from one sister to me to relay to the other sister about the parents. Family stuff,Ž Wilson told investiga-tors. Ž... What I found out the next visit was Christy had a kite that Clista left in, under around the chair somewhere and Christy got it. Thats what I know.ŽWilson was charged after the denial with perjury and introduction of contraband into the jail.Hess recused himself shortly afterward because of his ties to Wilson and Campbell stepped in to lead the prosecution. Since then, Campbell called on Overstreet to recuse himself from the case out of concerns of ties between his office and Wilsons campaign for state attorney.Despite those concerns, Overstreet declined the recusal request, saying the issues raised by the state were legally insufficient and had been addressed in previous court decisions.

But it wont be the last. California law-makers approved a plan two years ago to increase the states $10 minimum to $15 by 2022. A much smaller San Francisco Bay Area city, Emeryville, also will increase its minimum wage for smaller employ-ers to $15 on Sunday.

** A12 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Erin B. LoganThe Washington PostNot Stolen. Conquered,Ž a flier found in a music building at San Diego State University read. Your professor is scared of this book,Ž read a sticker outside a build-ing at New Yorks Baruch College, referring to a work by white national-ist Jared Taylor.White supremacist propaganda on college campuses is on the rise, according to a report by the Anti-Defamation League. The nonprofit found 292 occurrences on campuses located in the District of Columbia and 47 states, a 77 percent increase compared with the 2016-2017 school year. The ADL relied on news reports, community complaints and extremist sources to complete the report, according to Oren Segal, director of the groups Center on Extremism.The propaganda typically appeared on stickers, posters, banners and fliers, and it varied from veiled white supremacist lan-guage to explicitly racist images and words that attack minority groups, including Jews, Blacks, Muslims, non-white immigrants, and the LGBTQ community,Ž the report said.College campuses and their communities should be places for learning, growing and the future, not close-minded racism and hate-filled rhetoric from the past,Ž the ADLs national director, Jonathan Greenblatt, said in a statement. Were concerned to see that white supremacists are accelerating their efforts to target schools with propaganda in hopes of recruiting young people to support their bigoted worldview.ŽThe report highlighted Identity Evropa, an orga-nization founded in 2016 that recruits college-aged people though banners, stickers and online propaganda.The group was respon-sible for 48 percent of reported incidents in the past two years, the report found. In January, members posted fliers over histor-ically significant African American images outside the black studies depart-ment at the University of South Carolina at Columbia, the report said.The ADL is clearly reporting in error or negligence, as the blanket allegations reflect neither Identity Evropa nor any statement from a current representative,Ž spokesman Sam Harrington said in an email. Harrington noted the group is seeking a better future for European AmericansŽ and does not advocate for supremacy, violence or illegal activity.ŽThe ADL, and organizations like it, are attempting to stifle free debate and will continue to lose trust with the thinking public,Ž he added.The nonprofit describes Identity Evropa as a white supremacist group that avoids recognizable lan-guage and imagery on its symbols in an attempt to enter mainstream conservatism. Members were present at this years Conservative Political Action Conference and last years Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. The night before the protest turned deadly, participants chanted their popular mantra, you will not replace us.Ž The chant, Harrington said, references people who believe there is something to be gained from demographically replacing European Americans through immigration [to the United States] and globalization.ŽThe report also notes the violent clash between supporters and oppo-nents of white nationalist Richard Spencer after his speech at Michigan State University and Nazi chants during a violent protest after conservative commen-tator Charlie Kirk made a speech at Colorado State University.A January ADL report found that white suprem-acists murders more than doubled in 2017 compared with last year, far surpassing murders committed by domestic Islamic extremists and making 2017 the fifth deadliest year on record for extremist violence since 1970.ŽReport: White supremacist rhetoric inundating colleges

** A14 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Robert BurnsThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administrations request for the Pentagon to house migrants detained at the U.S. southern border and even help prosecute them is prompting concern about strains to the military. Some call it an inappropriate mission.We shouldnt be militarizing border enforcement,Ž Rep. Ro Khanna, a California Dem-ocrat, said in an interview.Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who has made it his top priority to improve the militarys fitness for combat, argues that the Pentagon is nonetheless obliged to provide help with border enforcement.In recent days Mattis has accepted requests by the departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services to provide temporary housing on Air Force and Army bases for potentially tens of thou-sands of detained migrant families and unaccompa-nied children. This is in line with historical precedents for military assistance, Mattis argued.We have housed refu-gees, we have housed people thrown out of their homes by earthquakes and hurricanes; we do whatever is in the best interest of the country,Ž he recently told reporters. But he also has insisted that decisions about immigra-tion policy and its security implications are not his to make. Im not going to chime in from the out-side,Ž he said.The Pentagon says it received a Department of Homeland Security request to house up to 12,000 detained migrant family members, starting with shelters for 2,000 people to be available within 45 days. The initial shelters are likely to be at Fort Bliss in Texas, but subsequent tent cities could be at two other bases in border states.The Pentagon has indi-cated Mattis will accept these requests, but no steps have been taken yet to move migrants onto the bases. Mattis has emphasized that members of the mil-itary will not be directly involved in detaining or securing migrants. By law, the military is barred from performing domestic law enforcement functions such as arresting people cross-ing the border, but it has sometimes provided sup-port for border security, including monitoring surveillance imagery and repairing border fences.Nonetheless, Mattis has been the target of pointed objections from senators critical of the Pentagon taking on a bigger role, including lending 21 mili-tary lawyers to the Justice Department to help pros-ecute immigration cases at the border.Clearly, the military needs more, not fewer, lawyers available for its critical military justice practice,Ž Sens. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, Kirsten Gilli-brand, D-NY, and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., wrote in a letter to Mattis last week. They pointed out the Pen-tagon already had said that military lawyers are too busy to expand the services of special victims counsel.Instead, we have now learned the services will be diverting these valuable resources to support a non-military mission,Ž the senators wrote, adding that they are deeply troubledŽ by what they consider a misuse of mili-tary personnel.The Pentagon has agreed to set up tents -which it euphemistically calls semi-separate, softsided camp facilitiesŽ -at Fort Bliss, if needed, for detained migrant fami-lies starting this summer. It has also agreed to make housing available at Good-fellow Air Force Base in Texas for up to 20,000 unaccompanied minors detained for illegally crossing the southern border.These shelter opera-tions, which could last for months, are to be run by DHS or HHS or their con-tractors, not the Pentagon, but defense officials say it is possible that the Penta-gon will end up erecting the shelters.This is not unprecedented. The Pentagon temporarily housed several thousand unaccompanied detained minors in 2014 at military bases. This years problem has drawn wider attention and sharper criticism in part because of the administrations now-suspended practice of separating children from parents who are detained for illegally crossing the border.We certainly should not be using our nations vital military bases for non-defense purposes,Ž Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, an Illinois Democrat, said earlier this month in arguing that Congress should block funding for migrant detention facili-ties on military bases.Even some Republicans who support Trumps crackdown on illegal immigration are unenthusiastic.I am not convinced at this point that housing them in our military installations is the best short-term answer, espe-cially if it harms regular base operations, crowds our service members, and distracts from the mission of defense,Ž Rep. Jodey Arrington, a Texas Repub-lican, said in a statement. His district includes Dyess Air Force Base, which is among bases under consideration for sheltering unaccompanied detained minors.Concern over using military to help border enforcementIn this April 26 photo, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis listens to a question during a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Trump administrations request for the Pentagon to house migrants detained at the U.S. southern border and even provide lawyers to prosecute them is drawing congressional criticism that it puts undue strain on the military.

Tracy Hart, alleging a myriad of offenses ranging from gender and racial discrimination to theft of taxpayer dollars.Don Hall presented copiously documented complaint forms via email Monday to Fort Walton Beach City Manager Michael Beedie and each member of the City Council. Beedie said the city is taking Halls allegations seriously and has launched an internal investigation to determine their validity.Theres a lot of stuff. Were still in the reviewing stage, trying to get our ducks in a row,Ž Beedie said. Right now were set-ting our course of action, deciding when well be interviewing employees, things like that.Ž Two of Halls complaints allege that Ryan and Hart placed the public in danger by mishandling arrests.In one 2016 case cited by Hall, James Copeland, who the Police Department had known since 2012 to be infected with HIV, transmitted the disease to a woman and her unborn child. No immediate action was taken though, accord-ing to the complaint.Given the seriousness of the allegation of a criminal suspect knowingly infecting unsuspecting victims with a lethal virus, one would automatically assume such an obvious threat to public safety would take precedence and be pursued immediately,Ž Hall said in his complaint. Unfortunately, and for unknown reasons, this investigation was lazily disregarded and was not pursued.ŽHall states in his com-plaint the Police Department waited 14 months before arresting Copeland on charges of having sex while infected with HIV. Court records indicate Copeland was arrested in late January of this year on the transmis-sion of HIV charge. A second court record shows Copeland was charged in early May for infecting another woman, a 17-year-old, in early 2017.He is scheduled for trial on both counts in August.Another complaint by Hall states that Ryan and Hart ordered a man who had attempted to pull a gun on police officers be left unsu-pervised at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center, where he had been taken for treatment of injuries suffered in a violent struggle. The complaint identifies the man as Kyle Kriech.Kriech essentially escaped from the hospital, as he was not secured and was in essence free to leave, due to being left unattended and unsecure by Fort Walton Beach Police Department officers at the aforementioned direction of Captain Hart and/or Chief Ryan,Ž the complaint states.Kriech later turned him-self in, Halls complaint said. He is scheduled for trial July 18 in Mental Health Court and faces charges of battery on an officer, carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest with violence. Another complaint alleges Ryan paid thousands of dollars to hire a testing company to gauge suitability for promotion of the Police Departments sergeants to the rank of lieutenant.FWB police o cer les complaints against bossesMr. Gene Robert Richardson, 76, a native of Panama City, passed away Thursday, June 28, 2018.

** B4 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Joe ReedyThe Associated PressTALLAHASSEE „Most new laws approved during Florida's recent legislative session take effect Sunday with the start of the state's fiscal year.The new statutes have an effect on Floridians of all ages, from bullying in schools to providing fur-ther protections against seniors.Here are some highlights of these 105 new laws:2018-19 budget: Almost $90 billion worth of spending that includes money for schools, universities and colleges, health care programs, the state's prison system, and roads takes effect.Opioids: Physicians will be limited to prescribing a three-day supply for acute pain, unless strict conditions are met for a seven-day supply. Physicians and pharmacists will also be required to consult the state's data-base to review a patient's history. Health care professionals also will need to take some courses on responsibly prescribing opioids.Criminal records: A person may request the removal of their arrest booking photo from a website or anywhere else where it can be publicly accessible. The request must be sent via registered mail and include proof of identification. This was approved during the 2017 session.School vouchers: The nation's first private school voucher program for bullied students takes effect. It allows students who are victims of bullying or other violence to transfer to a different public school or receive a private school voucher through the Hope Scholarship program. The vouchers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.Marriage: Anyone younger than 17 will not be allowed to marry. Anyone marrying a 17-year-old must be no more than two years older, while minors will need parental consent. The old law allowed 16and 17-year-olds to marry with the consent of both sets of parents. There was no minimum age if a judge approved and a pregnancy was involved.Sunshine Protection Act: Florida endorsed a plan to remain on Daylight Saving Time year 'round, but it needs Congress to amend existing federal law to allow the change. While the rest of the Eastern United States would set their clocks back in the fall, Florida wouldn't, leaving it with more sunshine in the eve-ning during the winter.Financial protections: An injunction is being created for protection against exploitation of vulnerable adults. It was created mainly to prevent seniors from being financially exploited but also covers their guardian or anyone acting on behalf of them with their permission.Veterans benefits: The state will expand the reduction or waiving of professional licensing fees for military members, veterans, and their spouses. It also provides some regulatory waivers for certain military-related professional licensees.Foreign business: State agencies and local governments will be pro-hibited from entering into contract with companies that boycott Israel. State agencies are also banned from investing with those doing business with the government of Venezuela.Incarcerated parents: The Department of Chil-dren and Families will be required to involve the incarcerated parent of a child who receives child welfare services in their case planning and progress.State symbols: The Loggerhead Turtle permanently becomes the official state saltwater reptile and the Florida Cracker Horse (Marshtackie) the official state horse. Florida Cracker Cattle has also been designated as the official state heri-tage cattle breed.Statuary Hall: The state's request to replace the statue of Confederate Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith with civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune in Washington, D.C., becomes official.New Florida laws: Marriage age, opioids, criminal recordsOxycodone-acetaminophen pills are pictured. Effective today, physicians face more stringent requirements when prescribing opioids. [PATRICK SISON/AP]

** B8 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News Herald By Tony Judnich315-4438 | @Tonyjnwfdn tjudnich@nwfdailynews.comDESTIN„ A lifeguard began patrolling popular Norriego Point on Friday, and city officials have ordered safety markers for the new swimming areas on the points East Pass side, according to City Manager Carisse LeJeune.At its meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, the Destin City Council is scheduled to receive updates on those and other Norriego Point activities.The new swimming areas, or embayments, were built during the recently-completed first phase of the more than $12 million Norriego Point stabilization and recreation project.The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's project man-ager for the overall project recently said the state was officially opening the point to the public and that it will remain open until the projects on-land publicaccess amenities begin being built this winter, LeJeune noted in a recent memo to the council.Besides the new swimming areas, the projects first phase included the addition of about 5 acres of sand dredged from East Pass to the 7.6-acre point.In addition, sheet piling, rock breakwaters and rock shoreline stabilization structures were installed, and more than 1,000 feet of shoreline were restored.Plans call for various types of vegetation to be planted on the dunes in late summer. Facilities such as a dune crossover, restrooms, showers, picnic shelters, a boardwalk and new parking spots will be added in the winter.The entire project, which is being paid for with settlement money from the 2010 BP oil spill, could be completed next spring.According to LeJeune, city and Destin Fire Control District officials had previously understood that Norriego Point would not be open to the public until both the stabilization and recreation phases of con-struction were completed.But many people have been visiting anyway, regardless of any official authorization.While taking note of that reality, the Okaloosa County Tourist Development Council last week approved bed tax funds for two additional lifeguards in Destin through Labor Day.Besides now having at least one lifeguard at Nor-riego Point, city staff has ordered about $3,000 worth of swimming buoys, ropes, anchors and signs for the new swimming areas.The ropes and buoys will be installed at the outer edge of each new embayment to help define the swimming areas and protect swimmers. Signs outlining safety protocols and park rules also will be posted, LeJeune said.All items have been ordered and are expected to arrive any day now,Ž city spokesman Doug Rainer said Friday. They will be installed as soon as they arrive.ŽBesides receiving those updates, the council on Monday plans to consider placing No boat parkingŽ signs at and near the new tip of Norriego Point.The stabilization project is complete and the shoreline no longer extends into the (Destin Harbor entrance) channel,Ž city Public Services Director David Campbell said in a recent city memo. The mouth of the harbor now contains rock stabilization and a 100foot retaining wall with a concrete cap extending along the shoreline into the harbor. This area is not appropriate for boat park-ing and should be posted accordingly.ŽDestin, Okaloosa focus on safety at Norriego PointDestin Beach Safety lifeguard Ross Spock pulls his ATV up near one of the swimming areas on Norriego Point on Friday. Ross was working the “ rst shift for the new lifeguard location. [MICHAEL SNYDER/DAILY NEWS]

** B10 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Lindsey BeverThe Washington PostAlmost three dozen children and three adults at a summer camp in central Flor-ida were rushed to hospitals recently after they mysteriously became ill, authorities said.Highlands County Public Safety Director Marc Bashoor said that 33 children and three parent chaperons at 4-H Camp Cloverleaf in Lake Placid became nauseated and started vomiting June 21. Some of them, Bashoor said, also experienced head-aches and fevers.One child who had been vomiting passed out, which prompted a 911 call, he said, and then "like dominoes, kids started throwing up."Officials with the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, which oversees the state's 4-H, said in state-ment Friday that the sickened campers and chaperones were transported to two hospitals for treatment. Although it's unclear what caused the illness, the institute said that the county health department has determined that the lake is "clean" and that the foods were free from contamination.Bashoor had said it could have been caused by norovirus or an amoeba in the water, but health offi-cials have not determined the source.Beverly James, a spokeswoman for the university's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, said the children, ages 8 to 13, and the adults have been released from the hospital. The children had been attending a week-long summer camp along with 87 other children, all of whom returned home Friday morning as scheduled.James said in the state-ment that cleaning crews will completely sanitize the camp before more children arrive Monday.Authorities said June 21 on Twitter that Highlands County Fire and Rescue responded to a "mass casualty incident" at the camp, where 17 children were being evaluated.But the number continued to rise „ to 26, then 30, then 33, plus the three adults.After the incident, Heather Kent, interim associate 4-H program leader in the state, said the campers and their families "have been our No. 1 priority.""It's not unusual for a couple of kids to get sick, especially if they're not used to being in the outdoors. But it's typically not 25 percent of the camp," she said, noting that 120 children attended the camp.33 children fall ill at summer camp Its not unusual for a couple of kids to get sick, especially if they're not used to being in the outdoors.

** B14 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldSix decades a er being told her mother was dead, she found her „ 80 minutes away and 100 years oldBy Meagan FlynnThe Washington PostJoanne Loewenstern didnt want to believe her mother was dead. But it was what she had always been told.She was 16 when she found out she was adopted. Her real mother died after giving birth to her in a Bronx hospital in 1938, she was told, but I had a feeling she was alive somehow,Ž Loew-enstern told The Washington Post. I just felt that I didnt believe it for some reason.ŽThe only thing she knew about her mother was her name: Lillian Feinsilver. She knew where she was born Bel-levue Hospital in the Bronx, in 1938 and that she was adopted two months later by two loving foster parents. And for most of her life that was as far as she thought the story would go.It had always been a good life, she said. She married in 1959 and moved from the Bronx to Far Rockaway, where she and her husband bought a home of their own. She raised four boys while her husband worked at auto dealerships and in manufacturing, taking extra jobs working Bingo night Mon-days and Wednesdays and at a funeral home on Saturdays, where his job was to watch and pray over dead bodies through the night.But still, all those years Loewenstern didnt believe her mother was dead. She wanted to find out what happened to her, she told her husband, but like her parents, he wondered why she needed to. Look what you have now, he would say.Eventually, after a failed attempt with a private detective, Loewenstern gave up.I said you know what, Im done,Ž Loewenstern said Thursday from her home in Boca Raton, Florida, where she moved in 1992. Sure I cried, because you know, I felt like I didnt belong in anyones circle, and that was it.ŽBut that was all before the time of DNA websites such as Ances-try.com, which in recent years have revolutionized genealogy, making even the most complex family trees and searches for dis-tant family members accessible to anyone with $99.Shelley Loewenstern, mar-ried to Loewensterns son Elliot, was the first to suggest that she should submit her DNA to the website. What was there to lose, Loewenstern thought. She was 79 by then, and she had been spending her evenings watching the TLC show Long Lost Family,Ž about adopted children or other disconnected family members reuniting with loved ones, often after spending their whole lives wondering and searching, just as Loewenstern had. Maybe she could get just as lucky as the people on TLC, she thought. I wanted to find out who she was before I went,Ž she said.On May 13, Shelley got an email, sent to her through Ancestry.com. It was from a man named Sam Ciminieri. He had found a match, he said.Do you know Lillian Fein-silver?Ž Shelley asked him. Yes, he said. She was his mother, and she was alive.Remarkably, she was living just 80 minutes away from Loewenstern in an assisted living facility in Port St. Lucie, Florida.As it turns out,Ž Elliot Loew-enstern told The Washington Post, we have a whole nother family we never would have discovered.ŽLillian Ciminieri was by then 100 years old. She used a wheel-chair and had dementia, but Sam Ciminieris ex-wife, who continued caring for her, told the Loewenstern family that over the years there was one thing Lillian never stopped saying. She kept saying she lost her daughter, she lost her daughter,Ž Shelley said.The story Shelley said she learned from Ciminieris exwife was startling. Lillian had given birth as a single unwed mother, and it appeared the baby had been taken from her without her knowledge, the family said.When Lillian was a younger woman, she used to regularly take the train from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to visit her niece and her granddaughter, prizing the visits with the young girls because, she would say, I lost my daughter. And then it hit Shelley: Both of them went through life think-ing the other had died,Ž she said.The newfound family mem-bers decided to act quickly. Both of their mothers were getting old, and so within a matter of weeks they organized a gather-ing at the assisted living facility where Lillian Ciminieri lived.On June 24, Loewenstern, Shelley and Elliot and one of their four sons took a seat in the nursing homes common area as Sam Cimineri wheeled his mother up to the table. Everyone mumbled awkward hellos, and although Loewenstern had waited 79 years for this day it all seemed a bit anticlimactic at first. Nobody could quite find the words.Ma, give her a hug!Ž Elliot yelled.I dont know if she recog-nizes me,Ž Loewenstern said.Her mother didnt say anything, and so after another few silent moments Loewenstern turned to her and made the introduction: Hi,Ž she said. Im Joanne. Do you know who I am? Do you recognize my picture from any place?Ž More silence.I was adopted in 1938 . after my birth mother, they told me, passed away,Ž she said. I dont know how true that is.Ž Nothing.Ask her if she gave birth at Bellevue,Ž Loewenstern said. To me.ŽStill nothing and so Loewenstern started to cry but it was just then that Lillian started to perk up. Shelley, in a burst of excitement, had her kids on FaceTime, on multiple cellphones. Its your great-grandson, she said, showing one of the phones to Lillian. These are your great grandchildren.Lillian smiled and then she finally spoke into the phone: How are you?Ž she asked. And after a while, Joanne Loewenstern told The Post, her 100-year-old mother started to understand.She said, finally, This is my daughter.ŽFor the first time, Joanne Loewenstern spent the after-noon coloring with her mother, a favorite activity for both of them that they never quite got too old to do. For the first time they took a picture together and for the first time Loewenstern told her she loved her.This had gone on for so many years,Ž Loewenstern said. I felt like I came this far, and I looked at her and I was very, very happy.ŽShe came back Wednes-day, she said, and that time her mother seemed to really know it was her, and there was no need for more questions.I had a feeling she was alive somehowJoanne Loewenstern (left) and her mother, 100-year-old Lillian Ciminieri, get the chance to color together for the “ rst time.

** B16 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Terry SpencerThe Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) „ Students and teachers who survived a Florida high school massacre told investigators how they watched classmates die, had bullets whiz past them and huddled in fear until they were rescued by police, in some of the most dramatic records released so far from the mass shooting.Prosecutors released the statements Friday from the Feb. 14 shooting Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where a gunman killed 17 people. The redacted statements are the latest evi-dence released under Florida law that makes it a public record when it is turned over to defense attorneys.Students and teachers described classmates being shot and dying in front of them, and bullets shattering glass, destroying comput-ers and slamming into walls. They talked of hiding in terror until they were rescued and then walking over dead bodies as police evacu-ated them from the building. Others described watching in puzzlement as the 19-yearold suspect Nickolas Cruz walked past among evacuat-ing students, knowing he had been kicked out of Stoneman Douglas a year earlier, and troubling and racist encoun-ters they'd had with him before the shooting.These are some of their sto-ries. Some student names in the report are redacted and others are not, but The Asso-ciated Press is not naming any students as they are juveniles.The shooter, using a high-powered AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, started firing in a first-floor hallway of the Stoneman Douglas freshman building near where a ninth-grade girl was sitting in class writing an essay on her laptop.A member of the school's Junior Reserve Officer Train-ing Corps, she heard two loud bangs but thought they were Valentine's Day balloons popping. She and her teacher exchanged a reassuring look but about 10 seconds later a bullet game through the door and shattered her computer screen. Another bullet grazed her arm and another went through her shirt."That's when everyone starting freaking out and the teacher started screaming, saying to take cover," the girl said. She said everyone tried to hide behind the teacher's desk but there wasn't enough room.She said she ran back to her desk, grabbed her phone and called 911. She said a girl who was standing got hit in the chest and slid down the wall. She said a boy shot in the chest clung to a desk hyperventilating but soon went limp. Another boy was shot in the head, but he never lost consciousness „ she used part of her JROTC shirt to apply pressure to his wound.Police soon arrived in the room and as she and her classmates were escorted out, leaving behind the boy, the girl and another girl who had died. She saw five or six more bodies in the hall.An algebra teacher on the second floor said she was walking toward a sneezing student when she recog-nized gunshots in the hall and immediately called a "Code Red" „ an active shooter alert „ in her class. She said had placed tape on her class-room's floor marking off the section that couldn't be seen from the window in the door and the students knew to dash to that part.She heard more and more gunshots and gathered her students close to her, playing with girls' hair and telling the students she could hear help coming to try to calm them. The fire alarm then went off, but she wasn't about to evacuate her room. That saved her students because she thinks she saw the shooter go past the window. Many who died were on the third floor and were in the hallway evacuating when the gunman came up the stairwell and mowed them down.She said one "very strong young man" placed him-self against the wall and was going to be the class's "hero," charging the gunman if he got into the room. But when the door opened it was police officers, who led them out.One student who knew Cruz said she was stand-ing on the athletic field after being evacuated when she saw him in the crowd. She said that struck her as strange because he had been kicked out of Stoneman Douglas a year earlier. "I didn't know what he was doing there," she said.Another said he spoke briefly to Cruz at the nearby Walmart where evacuated students were taken."I said like I thought you got expelled last year. And he's like no the school took me back in," he said, adding that he believed him."He was pretty scared. He was like all terrified." Later, he lost sight of Cruz and didn't see him again.The boy said also said he had known Cruz during his sophomore year, and that Cruz often would talk about violence and bring knives and bullets to school. He also brought dead animals in bags. "He used to show everyone, 'Oh, look I'm so proud of the killing."He also said Cruz made racist remarks about Jews and blacks, and drew Nazi symbols. He said he agreed with Hitler that "all Jews were dead and stuff."Cruz's attorneys have said he would plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence without parole. Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty.

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 1, 2018 B17 By Anne GeggisSun SentinelDEERFIELD BEACH „ Buddy Sparrow is trying to save the turtles „ and he's using about 32,000 paper straws to do it.Sparrow said he got tired of picking up plastic straws on the sand in Deer-field Beach, knowing their deadly effect on sea life.So he spent more than $1,000 and a couple hundred hours buying all that paper product, printing up fliers and meeting with people about the need to stop using plastic."People think I'm insane for sure," joked Sparrow, 56, a closet organizer who sometimes sings in local venues. "I start to wonder sometimes myself." For the last two months, Sparrow and two recruits have visited 50 bars, restaurants and hotels that serve cold drinks in Deer-field, mostly east of Federal Highway. Sparrow asks them to display a sign that says "straws available upon request." They estimate about 35 have said they would.Sparrow is also providing them with a start-up pack of biodegradable paper straws that he's hoping they will order for them-selves once they run out of the free set.Each restaurant that commits to this "Strawless Summer" gets a pack of 400 straws each from Sparrow.Sparrow said some restaurants have committed to the idea. And others, like The Sticky Bun in The Cove shopping center, have stopped using plastic straws entirely."If we can do something, even if it's small, it makes us feel better," said Pauline Hrabovsky, who's been serving up sticky buns in Deerfield for three years.Like millions of others, Sparrow and Hrabsovsky have seen video of a turtle getting a straw pulled out of its nose. They've heard reports of a plastic mass twice the size of Texas that's sitting in the ocean.Not every customer likes the idea of no straws. "One lady said that if her lips touch a cold glass, her lips will crack," Hrabsovsky said.Restaurant manager Jenni Amirto is undeterred."As soon as I say, 'It's to save the sea turtles and the sea animals,' they love it," she said.David Anderson, sea turtle conservation coordinator at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton, said that plastics are the biggest threat to hatchlings. Straws usually don't impale noses like the one in the video, but they break up into tiny bits that hatchlings eat."They are out there as hatchlings getting sick, weak and washing back in," he said. "The ones that sur-vive we see passing plastic through their system."The paper straws that Sparrow has ordered can sit in liquid for hours before beginning to degrade, he said. One plastic straw ordered in bulk quantities costs a fraction of a cent, whereas Sparrow's order was more like 2 cents each.Sparrow insists the extra cost is worth it. He's been heartbroken at the sight of litter carpeting the beach after public events such as last year's Fourth of July celebration, he said."I love the beach „ I've been coming since 1991," he said. "It's where I went to pray when I needed heal-ing from (thyroid) cancer. There, I started thinking, 'What if I die?' I thought, let me do some things that are going to leave this planet a little better place than when I came."Man buys 32,000 paper straws on campaign to save turtlesBuddy Sparrow with the Deer“ eld Beach Island Groups delivers paper straws to the Sticky Bun in Deer“ eld Beach. The restaurant never uses plastic straws or polystyrene take-out materials. They are participating in a city-wide Strawless SummerŽ effort. [MIKE STOCKER/ SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL]

They added flower beds outside and dug out grass and weeds from around the building to plant bushes leading up to the entrance, adding warmth to the nonprofits newest addition.Patrick said the CAC trauma therapy services moved to the new location, 303 Magnolia Ave., about a month ago. He said the CAC is still operating out of its 11th Street location, but the trauma ther-apy services needed to expand.The supplies and labor for the project were made pos-sible by Lawnscapes, Thrivent Financial, Lowe's of Panama City Beach, Lisenby Nursery and donation fromindividuals.Since the Gulf Coast Childrens Advocacy Center opened in March 2000, more than 15,000 children have been provided the comfort and care needed in time of crisis through community donations. Patrick said that boils down to several hundred local children each year „ each a victim of sexual or physical abuse or witnesses to homicides „ that require evi-dence-based trauma therapy. The goal is to provide them with coping mechanisms so they can go out and be a survivor,Ž he said.Anyone who would like to make donation or get involved with CAC can visit www.gulfcoastcac.org or call 850-872-7760.

They also advise throwing away old tires, cans and pots. CoverŽ comes into play when people cover their skin with clothing and repellent. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, paramenthane-diol, and IR3535 are effective, according to the health department, though repellents should be used based on their labels. Not all repellents are suit-able for children, for example.Those who work in areas where the pests might lurk are encouraged to wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. Doors and windows should be covered with screens to block out mosquitoes.Drain and cover is easy to remember,Ž Kretzer said. We have a lot of rain in the summer, and you can forget to dump water and check for it. Make sure you take precautions." VIRUSFrom Page B1Circuit Judge Brantley Clark Jr. has yet to weigh in on the motion, but the charges against Brinegar, including attempted seconddegree murder with a firearm, are proceeding through the court as he remains in custody, court records indicated.According to documents filed on his behalf, Brinegars attorney, Katelyn Crosson, had been attempting to get sworn accounts by the reported victims two chil-dren from the late September 2017 shooting on Linger Longer Road in Fountain. After serving the parents, Crosson reportedly receiving an email from the chil-dren's mother stating she would not make her children available for questioning.This email is to inform you that I feel it is not in the best interest of my two children to be deposed or to participate in any court event, or to relive in any way the circumstances that brought about this need for depositions and court proceed-ings in the caseƒ,Ž the email stated. This is due to their young ages and the intensity of all the above listings. I am sure you understand.ŽDespite receiving depositions from the parents, though, Cros-son requested they be punished accordinglyŽ for refusing to give the childrens accounts.ƒ The above named witnesses were not excused from attending said deposition and did not appear as required by subpoena,Ž Crosson wrote, requesting an explanation for why they should not be held in indirect contempt.Prosecutors recently upgraded Brinegars charge of aggravated assault in connection with the shooting to attempted second-degree murder with a firearm. He has denied the charges.According to Bay County Sheriffs Office reports, Brinegars neighbor called deputies about 7 p.m. Sept. 30 saying multiple shots had been fired at his home. The man told officers he, his wife and their three chil-dren had to take cover to avoid being shot. BCSO reported find-ing bullet holes in the neighbors vehicle, a pole barn, metal roof-ing over the garage, a tree next to the house and a motorcycle. The neighbors said they were out behind their home target shooting when their neighbor, Brinegar, began shooting back at them. When officers approached Brinegar, he was visibly intoxi-cated as he stepped out of his house to greet them and fell over in his front yard, BCSO reported.Mr. Brinegar openly yelled, He started shooting his guns first and also killed my dog, Žofficers wrote. When asked if Mr. Brinegar had shot a firearm towards his neighbors residence, he stated, Hell yes I did, I shot my .38. ŽBCSO detained Brinegar and obtained a warrant for his home, officers reported. Inside, they reported finding a loaded 9mm pistol on a bar stool next to sev-eral bottles of whiskey and pipes allegedly used to smoke mari-juana. Loose ammo was littered throughout the living room, and deputies also reported finding numerous spent casings in Brin-egars driveway. SHOOTINGFrom Page B1

Because of the large size of the fish, the shape of it looked different.It doesnt look like the same animal,Ž McInnish said.The deckhands took the fish up to the wheelhouse to Capt. Nick Price.I had to make some calls because I didnt know what we had,Ž Price said.Even late Friday afternoon, there were still questions as to what kind of fish they had. Some thought it was a white grunt, others a margate grunt.But after Jim Roberson, the International Game and Fish Association representative for this area, took a look at a few photos of the fish, he said he was 99 percentŽ sure it was a tomtate grunt, noting the red mouth.The All-Tackle world record for a tomtate is 1 pound, 4 ounces. On Friday, when the Swoop got back to Harbor-Walk Marina, they weighed and measured the fish and filled out the paperwork for a possible world record.The next step, according to Roberson, is for him to actually see the fish firsthand to verify the species and then check off on the paperwork and make sure it is signed by the weighmaster.I have the chance to fish all over,Ž McInnish said, noting he has been fortunate enough to fish the Pacific, Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico near the Keys, but never out of Destin.McInnish and his family were just traveling through Destin on their way back from a trip to Disney World to celebrate his daughters 18th birthday.It was nice to get the oppor-tunity. We didnt plan it, but it was neat,Ž McInnish said. They were great guys on the Swoop, cant say enough about them.ŽPrice was just as surprised by the catch.Wed never seen anything like that,Ž Price said. Weve caught some cool stuff like African pompano, but nothing like that. You just never know what youre going to catch out here.ŽFish caught in Fla. may be a world record for speciesThomas McInnish, of Missouri, shows off his 8 pound, 5 ounce “ sh caught Friday aboard the party boat Swoop in Destin, Fla.

The quick-footed French teenager scored two goals in a five-minute span of the second half to help his team rally for a 4-3 victory over Argentina. Saturdays victory gave France a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals.Messi, who turned 31 during his fourth and possibly final World Cup, set up a pair of goals but again failed to score in a knockout match at the biggest event in soccer. Mbappe got his two in his first attempt.Of course, as Ive already and always said, in the World Cup you have all the top level players so it is an opportunity to show what you can do and what your abilities are,Ž said Mbappe, who now has three goals in Russia. There is no better place than a World Cup.ŽMbappe was a constant threat to Argentinas creak-ing defense with his speed and skill and was at the heart of Frances often-breath-taking display, particularly in the middle of the second half.He became the second teenager to score multiple goals in a knockout match at the World Cup. Pele was the other, doing it twice at 17 at the 1958 World Cup.It is flattering to be the second one after Pele but Argentinas Nicolas Taglia“ co tries to block the kick by Frances Kylian Mbappe. [RICARDO MAZALAN/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Actions speak so much louder than words, or what they may have read or what they may have heard. Its about your actions. Whatever is in the past is in the past. I look forward to gaining everyones trust.Ž Those were the words that Jameis Winston spoke at his introductory news conference while asking to be judged moving forward when the Tampa Bay Bucs made him the No. 1 selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. Im taking him at his word. It continues to be about his actions, which if you want to believe him are more playful than harmful. Im not a believer. Ive havent been for some time, and dont expect to become one anytime soon. Jameis Winston is far from the thug that some people want to paint him as. Delinquent fits him better in one estimation. That doesnt mean he is risk-free or innocent. Because Winstons unlawful actions speak so much louder than his words. That is why the NFL recently suspended the Bucs starting quarterback for three games over what transpired between Winston and a female Uber driver during an episode in March, 2016 in Scottsdale, Arizona. When news of the NFL investigation broke, Winston was reported to have said, The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver. I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her.Ž He continued to play the plausible deniability card at every turn. But heres a lightning bolt, Jameis. The NFL believed your accuser; not you. This no longer is Florida State, where an athletic department much less an entire university was too caught up in chasing national championships to discipline you accordingly following a number of disgusting incidents. Youre in the Adult Section now. Staying in character, or in your case the absence thereof, could soon cost you more than three games at the start of next season. Neither might the Buccaneers brass want you to be the continued face of their franchise, no matter Winstons actions speak much louderBy Pat McCannThe News HeraldPANAMA CITY BEACH „ Chase Seiffert was finetuning his game last week while looking to extend his momentum on the PGA Tour in the upcoming A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier.

** worked extensively on his iron play during the off week following the Travel-ers. His final-round 64 was responsible for his Top 10 finish giving him a spot this week at the famed resort in the Allegheny Mountains. Not to mention an $189,000 paycheck.I hit a lot more golf balls,Ž Seiffert said. My irons were pretty good in spots, but overall Im not as sharp as I need to be. Its just that my putter was so good last week.ŽSeiffert said that he spent added time trying to perfect a knock-down shot when between clubs. He said that was the reason he pulled irons left, both off the tee on the par-3 16th hole of his final round, and the ensu-ing approach on No. 17. The latter led to his lone bogey of the weekend.Seiffert left Saturday morning for The Greenbrier, a luxury resort. He said that players received a discount enabling him tostay on premises (cheaper rooms otherwise $465 nightly) during the tournament. Hewants to get acclimated to eleva-tion, but most importantly is eager to spend as much time as possible on the golf course.It will be nice to have time to prepare,Ž Seiffert said. I plan on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and might even practice a bit, maybe play nine holes on Wednesday.ŽSeiffert already has spent ample time online studying the golf course, which looks to be more wide open off the tee than the TPC River Highlands at the Travelers.Seiffert said he hit his driver only five to seven times per round off the tee, depending on the wind and weather conditions. He hit it only five times on Sunday.It looks like its going to be a lot of drivers,Ž said Seiffert, who is able to overpower some holes with his length.Old White makes up for an absence of hazards by being well bunkered and offers a number of undulat-ing greens, not unlike River Highlands, Seiffert said.While also a par-70 layout,at 7.292 yards it is more than 400 yards longer than River Highlands. I like to hit a lot of driv-ers, and like courses that allow you to do that,Ž Sei-ffert said. Theres some room off the tee.ŽSeiffert gained some short-term notoriety from his Top 10 finish that included on-site interviews in Connecticut as well as a midweek show on PGA Tour Radio with his former college coach.Even more importantly, he was notified that his lofty finish earned him 75 Fed Ex Cup points. While qualifying for that PGA Tour bonanza is not yet a viable goal, Seiffert always is on the lookout for gaining PGA playing status.If I can crack the Top 200 I could get in the Web.com playoffs and use that to earn my PGA card,Ž Seiffert said.If that doesnt work out, and he doesnt play well at The Greenbrier, Sei-ffert knows that he might have to return to Monday qualifying for upcoming events.If I have to continue that I will, but I want to stay on the PGA Tour train,Ž Seiffert said. Im excited, and Ive had a good week of practice.Ž C2 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldChase Seiffert has made the cut in the past four PGA Tour events he has participated in. [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO.] SEIFFERTFrom Page C1how much work you do in the community or how many times you smile for the camera. Because you still dont get it, and you likely never will until it is too late and your incredible talent has faded from view. That much was revealed in your latest mea culpa, which sounded all too familiar. First and foremost, I would like to say Im sorry to the Uber driver for the position I put you in. It is uncharacteristic of me and I genuinely apologize,Ž Winston wrote. Ive got a better idea, Jameis. Why dont you apologize for groping her and then repeatedly lying about it? Yours is a junior high school attempt of contrition, and with your past not remotely believable. The NFL considered your conduct to be sexual assault, not merely an Uber driver put in an awkward situation.Ž The remainder of Winstons so-called apology reeks of his arrogance and selfish objective. Hes concerned about his brand and reverts to pandering to the convenient. There absolutely is no mention of taking any steps to change his behavior. I know I have to hold myself to a higher standard on and off the field and that I have a responsibility to my family, community, and teammates to live above the platform with which God has blessed me,Ž Winston wrote. I apologize to my teammates, the Buccaneers organization and fans for letting them down and for not being able to be out there for the first three games of the season.Ž This is a recording. And then this much to leverage part of the blame on the NFL. Although I am disappointed in the NFLs decision, I understand the NFLs process, and I embrace this as an opportunity to take advantage of the resources available to help me achieve the goals that I have for myself.Ž Someone pass the spit bucket, I think Im going to fill it to the top. Jameis Winston is to sincerity what the 1919 Black Sox were to sportsmanship. Near the end of his apologyŽ he then blames alcohol for his lack of maturity, and says that he has eliminated it from his life. Oh, I get it now. It never really was your fault. It was the booze! This is a guy who has never been convinced he has done anything wrong. After all, hes Jameis Winston. Others always have stepped in to run interference for him. Why should this be any different than sexual assault allegations at FSU in 2013 that resulted in a civil suit settlement, or shoplifting incidents, or standing atop a chair in the student cafeteria and shouting disparaging sexual remarks about a female? And those are the past incidents that weve been made aware of. Tampa Bay opens the season against the Saints, Eagles and Steelers, so even with Winston behind center the chances were that the Bucs will start 0-3, or probably 1-2 at best. In that sense, his absence isnt that much of a loss. But how much of a liability is his presence? Winston is due a guaranteed-for-injuryonly $21 million in 2019 before his contract expires in the spring of 2020. How would you like to be ownership, which has made a multimillion dollar investment in a man-child who has provided evidence that he hasnt jettisoned his infantile behavior? How would you like to be a general manager or head coach of the Bucs whose continued employment is indelibly linked to Winstons continued maturation and refinement as an NFL starting quarterback? At least those are much better options than being connected to Winstons growth as a man. Need proof? Actions speak so much louder than words. Trust me, Jameis. MCCANNFrom Page C1 lets put things in context. Pele is another cate gory,Ž Mbappe said. But its good to be among the players to score in knockout matches.ŽWith the score 2-2, Mbappe got his first goal with a cool finish from a tight angle in the 64th minute, his low shot going under Argentina goalkeeper Franco Armani. Four minutes later, he slotted past Armani again after he was put through on goal by a deft pass from Oliver Giroud.Mbappe also helped France to its first goal. Fol-lowing a sustained period of early pressure, he won a penalty after a 40-meter burst of speed that ended with him being brought down by Marcos Rojo. Antoine Griezmann then scored from the spot in the 13th minute, sending Armani the wrong way.Our team is much younger, but we are there. We answered the call,Ž France coach Didier Deschamps said. It was not easy because we were leading and then there was an equalizer. Then they led 2-1, but we kept fight-ing. There is an excellent mentality in this group and we did everything to go further. We couldnt miss it and we did win it.Ž Mbappe was born a few months after France won the 1998 World Cup at home, its only title at the tournament. Deschamps was the captain of that team and Zinedine Zidane scored two goals in the final.People remember more the World Cup vic-tory than the year I was born,Ž Mbappe said. It is normal (because) it was the time we were World Cup winners, so that is obviously what they remember.ŽFrance, which has reached the quarterfinals at consecutive World Cups for the first time, will next face either Portugal or Uruguay on Friday in Nizhny Novgorod. Blaise Matuidi will miss the match after receiving a second yellow card of the tournament.SOCCERThe Associated PressSOCHI, Russia „ Edinson Cavani upstaged Cristiano Ronaldo, first with his head and then with his right foot, and sent Uruguay to the World Cup quarterfinals.Cavani scored twice and Ronaldo none Saturday to give Uruguay a 2-1 victory over Portugal.On the same day Lionel Messi was sent home in Argentinas loss, the other GOATŽ at this tourna-ment was also eliminated. It was two weeks ago that Ronaldo scored a hat trick in the same stadium against Spain, stroking his chin after the first goal to imply he was the greatest of all time.ŽThere was no goal from Ronaldo this time. Everywhere he went, the Portugal great was hounded by two or three Uruguayan defenders.It was Cavani who instead took the spotlight. He combined with Luis Suarez to compete a series of precision passes to give Uruguay the early advantage with a header in the seventh minute. And after Portugal equalized on Pepes header in the 55th minute, it was Cavani again finishing a perfect Uruguay counter in the 62nd with a shot from just inside the penalty area that caught Portugal goal-keeper Rui Patricio slightly out of position and curled inside the far post.Uruguay ousts PortugalCavani scores twice in 2-1 victoryPortugals William, right, and Portugals Bernardo Silva, left, challenge for the ball Uruguays Edinson Cavani, center.

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 1, 2018 C3By Tom WithersThe Associated PressCLEVELAND „ LeBron James flew back to Los Angeles from a family vacation in the Caribbean. He could be there longer than usual.Hours before NBA free agency opened with the three-time champion as its most coveted prize, James returned Saturday to Southern Califor-nia, where he has two homes and a film production company. The Lakers are hoping they can persuade him to sign with them and return them to glory.Los Angeles is among the teams in the mix to land James after his agent told the Cleve-land Cavaliers on Friday that he will not exercise his $35.6 mil-lion contract option for next season. At 12:01 a.m. Sunday, James will be an unrestricted free agent, and agent Rich Paul is expected to contact several teams with the Lakers and Cavs atop his list.By declining his option, James positioned himself to be able to choose where hell play next, and Cleveland, just up the road from his home near Akron, remains a strong possibility. But there are at least three other teams „ and maybe an outsider or two „ with legitimate shots at landing James, who made it clear following this years NBA Finals that hes still driven to win championships.While every team dreams of being ruled by King James, only a few have a legit chance of signing him.Here are the cases „ for and against „ the leading contenders: CLEVELAND WHY: Home; money.James came back four years ago to a heros welcome, some-thing that seemed unimaginable when he left in disgrace four years earlier for Miami. But he vowed to do everything he could to deliver a title to cham-pionship-starved Cleveland. He delivered in 2016, erasing past sins and raising James to a worshipped level few athletes in any sport have experienced. His family is comfortable here and its where he has complete control.The Cavs can also offer him the most lucrative package, a five-year, $209 million contract.WHY NOT: Flawed roster; blemished relationship with owner Dan Gilbert.Last summers stunning trade of guard Kyrie Irving left the Cavs without a quality running mate for James, who was forced to carry a heavier offensive load throughout the regular season and playoffs. Cleveland has deep salary-cap issues „ partially caused by James failure to commit long-term „ and the Cavs currently lack enough talent to unseat the champion Golden State Warriors.Gilbert and James mended some fences for his return in 2014, but they remain distant other than a shared commitment to winning. Gilbert has gone above and beyond finan-cial barriers to appease James, but the well could be running dry. LOS ANGELES LAKERSWHY: Salary-cap space; business interests; iconic franchise. With some savvy moves, the Lakers are poised to potentially add two superstars „ James and Paul George and maybe Kawhi Leonard „ to a team featuring up-and-coming talents like Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball, who is report-edly dealing with a knee injury. WHY NOT: Youth; the Western Conference.Theres little doubt James has some quality years ahead of him. But does he have enough time to let a group of unproven players with no postseason experience develop into a title contender? And if he jumps conferences for the first time in his career, the path to the Finals is far more treacherous. PHILADELPHIAWHY: Rising team; staying in the East.In Sixers guard Ben Simmons, James sees a younger version of himself and hed relish the chance to play alongside the 21-year-old while mentoring him. The Sixers also have center Joel Embiid, 24, projected to become the games next dominant big men. Phila-delphia would instantly vault from conference contender to favorite with James, who could make a strong run at his ninth straight Finals in Year One.WHY NOT: Too young; front-office dysfunction.Much like the Lakers, the Sixers lack postseason experience and James would be surrounded by players who have barely tasted the postseason. LeBron returns to LA to plot next move as free agency nearsThe Associated PressJOLIET, Ill. „ Martin Truex Jr. just celebrated his 38th birthday. He has won two of his last three races. He is spending this weekend at one of his favorite tracks.So yes, life is quite good at the moment.Truex appears to be pick-ing up some momentum as he tries to become the first repeat NASCAR Cup Series champion since Jimmie Johnson won five in a row from 2006 to 2010. He goes for his third consecu-tive victory at Chicagoland Speedway this Sunday.This track has always been really good for me. Obviously, the last two years, its been really good,Ž said Truex, who turned 38 on Friday. I had to overcome a lot of issues here both years it seems like to be able to get the win. Thats kind of neat looking back on our two races here, what we had to overcome to win. This year is going to be different, I think.ŽTruex had to deal with a completely unraveled tire on his way to the Chicago-land victory in 2016. He had an early pit-road penalty last year, but he led for 75 laps and finished more than 7 seconds ahead of secondplace Chase Elliott.Truex and the rest of the Cup Series face a different challenge on this visit to the bumpy 1.5-mile oval. Chicagoland was being staged in September as NASCARs playoff opener, but it has a mid-summer date this season and the forecast calls for temperatures in the 90s.Truex was 12th in qualifying on Saturday, turning a lap in 174.656 mph.Grips been tough to find this weekend for a lot of guys,Ž he said. New tires as well, so I mean theres a lot of new things going on. Its definitely going to be tougher, I would imagine that the grooves going to be probably on average a little bit higher than when we run here in the fall. I think more guys are going to get the top working. Its definitely going to be differ-ent, but how much its hard to say right now.Ž Truex is coming off a win last weekend at Sonoma, outdueling Kevin Harvick on the road course for his third victory of the season in his Furniture Row Racing Toyota. He also won at Pocono on June 3, holding off a hard-charging Kyle Larson.Martin Truex Jr. trying for 3rd straight win at ChicagolandThe Associated PressPOTOMAC, Md. „ The cheers were so loud for Tiger Woods that no one could hear the starter announce the name of Joel Dahmen when it was his turn to hit.And then it got even row-dier Saturday at the Quicken Loans National with each putt Woods made „ 12 feet for par, four in a row for birdie, a 25-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole to head to the back nine just two shots out of the lead.Abraham Ancer heard it all in the group ahead, and it carried him into a share of the 54-hole lead. Woods couldnt keep up.Ancer had the lowest round of his PGA Tour career, an 8-under 62 on the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, and wound up atop the lead-erboard with Francesco Molinari (65).The crowds were absolutely amazing. Every hole was packed,Ž Ancer said. I just drew on that. I just heard all the roars. He was making a lot of putts on the front nine. The roars were crazy. I just wanted to be one step ahead of him. So it worked out.ŽIt worked out even better than that.Ancer, a 27-year-old Mexi-can, had never been among the top 10 going into the final round in his previous two starts. Now hes one round away from his first PGA Tour victory, which is a lot longer than it looks. Molinari, a two-time Ryder Cup player with a World Golf Championship among his credentials, overcame a few putts he missed from short range to close with two birdies to join Ancer at 13-under 197.Ryan Armour (68) and Zac Blair (66) were two shots behind.Woods lost all momentum on the back nine by missing two birdie chances inside 10 feet, taking a bogey on a short par 4 and then driving just through the green on the reachable 14th to 18 feet, chipping strong to 8 feet and missing another birdie chance.He had to settle for a 68 and was six shots behind, making this the seventh straight tour-nament he has been at least five shots behind going into the final round.It sure didnt sound that way, and for most of the round, it didnt look that way.It was frustrating because I played better than what my score indicates,Ž Woods said I thought that 10 under would have been a good score for me to end up at for the day, and I could have easily gotten that today on the back nine.ŽThe nine players ahead of him have combined for just five (official) PGA Tour victo-ries. That includes Molinari, a five-time winner in Europe who is No. 17 in the world. He won the HSBC Champions in Shanghai in 2010, before the PGA Tour recognized it as an official victory.The Italian is playing at the National and plans to be at the John Deere Classic in two weeks, even though the European Tour is in the meat of its summer schedule with national opens in France, Ire-land and Scotland leading up to the British Open. Molinaro is currently among qualifiers for the Ryder Cup team, but his FedEx Cup standing is at No. 123. Hes making the most of his first trip to the TPC Potomac. Even though he missed a few short putts on the front nine, he closed with a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th and hit wedge into 5 feet for birdie at the 18th.Its where I want to be,Ž Molinari said, referring more to his position on the leader-board than in heat approaching 100 degrees. I would have been happy with even 11 or 12 under. The main thing today was to stay close to the leader, so Ive done a very good job of that. Tomorrow I just need to go out and do my best, hit as many good shots as possible and see if that would be enough.ŽAncer was tied for the lead after the opening round at the Memorial, which is the only other time he has been atop the leaderboard after any round on the PGA Tour. Conditions have been changing since the opening round with so much sun, no rain and fairways that are getting faster. That was more bothersome to Ancer than the heat. I grew up in Mexico, in the north part of Mexico where its very hot,Ž he said. Didnt bother me. I would rather play in this than cold weather.ŽThe course certainly has everyones attention.Woods found that out the hard way with three shots from the rough that sailed some 30 yards over the green, leading to bogeys.You have to hit it good. Theres no way around it,Ž Ancer said.Armour shared the 36-hole lead with Beau Hossler and Brian Gay, who both failed to break par. Hossler shot a 71 and was five shots behind, while Gay had a 72. Rickie Fowler, the only player from the top 10 in the world at the TPC Potomac, had a 69 and was eight shots behind.U.S. SENIOR OPEN: Jerry Kelly squandered the lead, then regained it, and will head into the “ nal day of the U.S. Senior Open with a one-shot advantage over David Toms. Kelly shot 1-over 71 at The Broadmoor to “ nish at 4 under. He threeputted from inside of 2 feet on the 12th hole for a double bogey that brie” y cost him the lead. Toms shot a bogey-free 66. Tim Petrovic had a 71. He brie” y led after making birdie on No. 14, but bogeyed three his last four holes to “ nish two out of the lead, tied with Kirk Triplett (68). Another shot back are Brandt Jobe (66), Paul Goydos (70) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (73), whose only birdie of the day came on a chip-in from the side of the 15th green. LPGA TOUR: So Yeon Ryu broke away on the closing holes at Kemper Lakes to take a three-stroke lead in the KPMG Womens PGA Championship. The 28-year-old South Korean star birdied the 14th and 15th holes to jump ahead of Canadian Brooke Henderson and “ nished with a birdie on 18. She shot a 5-under 67 on another scorching afternoon to get to 11-under 205 and move a step closer to her third major victory. Henderson, the 2016 winner, was second. She bogeyed Nos. 14 and 16 in a 70. South Koreans Sung Hyun Park was 7 under after a 71, and American Angel Yin had a 68 to get to 6 under. Ryu won the 2011 U.S. Womens Open and 2017 ANA Inspiration for her major victories. She won the Meijer LPGA Classic two weeks ago in Michigan for her sixth LPGA Tour victory.Ancer, Molinari share advantage at NationalTiger Woods, center, tees off on the 17th tee during the third round of the Quicken Loans National golf tournament, Saturday in Potomac, Md.

Tavares could only get an eight-year deal by re-signing with the Islanders, but would have to do so before midnight when that advantage expires.If the Tavares sweepstakes drag on into Sunday, it would seem to favor San Jose and Toronto, either of which could sign the 27-yearold to a seven-year deal worth $70 million or more. He met this week with the Sharks, Maple Leafs, Islanders, Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning, and his decision could drastically affect the plans of those teams and others.I think other teams have admitted, we would have to make moves (to clear salary-cap space),Ž Bruins general manager Don Sweeny told report-ers in Boston on Friday. Pretty confident wed be able to do that.ŽAs hockey waited for the Tavares watch to end, several teams made moves Saturday ahead of the frenzy.The Sharks agreed to terms on a $64 million, eight-year extension with forward Logan Couture, according to a person familiar with the deal who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasnt been announced. It cant become official until after noon Sunday because it doesnt begin until the 2019-20 season „ the same as long-term deals the Los Angeles Kings have with Drew Doughty and Arizona Coyotes have with Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Niklas Hjalmarsson.Detroit got its own defenseman under contract for the next two seasons by agreeing to deal with Mike Green that pays him $5.375 million annually. Signing Green could be just the start of the action for the Red Wings, who have been linked to unrestricted free agent goaltender Jonathan Bernier and winger Thomas Vanek.New Jersey also shored up its goaltending situa-tion by re-signing Eddie Lack to a $650,000, one-year deal. The Devils also have Cory Schneider and Keith Kinkaid, who split time last season and in the playoffs.A person with direct knowledge of discussions said the Buffalo Sabres are expected to sign goalie Carter Hutton, who had been the St. Louis Blues backup to Jake Allen. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because agreements cannot be announced until the signing period begins.Hutton and others seem to already be ticketed for certain places, but many big-name play-ers are still up for grabs.NHL awaits John Tavares decision on eve of free agencyNew York Islanders center John Tavares skates against the New Jersey Devils during the “ rst period of a March 31 game, in Newark, N.J.

Luck-ily for parents, plenty of teenagers today have access to different types of training to prepare for the job.One option for babysitters-in-training is through a live course, such as the one Paula Davis, Ed.D, teaches for the UF/IFAS Extension in Bay County.We offer them through the (UF) extension and 4-H two to three times a year,Ž said Davis, who is with 4-H Youth Development. We recommend for ages 11 and up, but if you know youve got a young one thats going to be home alone, Id rather them come and at least have information.ŽThe hands-on classes provide a plethora of infor-mation for sitters, from basic first-aid skills to finding age-appropriate activities.Safety, how to make a boo-boo bunny, food safety, how to prepare meals in a microwave, responsibilities of child care and what it takes to be a responsible sitter, identifying hazards that are in the home,Ž are just some of the topics covered by the class, according to Davis. Then we talk about basic food and nutri-tion and how to prepare some fun snacks that are fairly nutritious as well.ŽDavis believes the most important quality to consider when hiring a bab-ysitter is whether they enjoy spending time with children and caring for others.I think, honestly, its important that if a teen is a sitter, its because they enjoy children,Ž she said. If they dont enjoy the job, they wont enjoy your children and your children wont enjoy them.ŽLocal babysitter Sydney Syfrett, 14, agrees with the sentiment.Babysitting: Get back to basicsBabysitting training courses bene“ t everyone involved.

** D4 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News HeraldMost of us have pleasant memories of school, so we want our kids to have fond remembrances of their formative years as well. With so much time dedicated to learning, it is easy to worry about everything from teachers and food to the types of parties and social events that are offered at school. Most of the time, we develop expectations based on experiences we had at school decades ago. To keep from becoming obsessed, it is helpful to think back on what school was like for our parents and grandparents. In the 1930s and 1940s, schools and classes were smaller. It was not uncommon for students to have the same teacher for many years, there was more interaction between older and younger students, and many kids had family responsibilities that consumed most after school hours. Although some social interaction occurred at school, the bulk of the socialization happened during neighborhood games and gatherings, church socials, and other community events. In the 1960s and 1970s, kids had less family responsibilities and schools grew. Title 9 expanded the sports offerings for girls and on campus after school activities became popular. In the 1980s and 1990s, technology advanced rapidly. Schools became even larger and more diverse. Families with two working parents became common and on campus after school activities proliferated. Today, education is experiencing many technology related changes. Students can attend class online real time and can easily tap into learning resources on the Internet. It is nearly impossible to socially categorize a student by the type of schooling he/she received. Someone who attends class online real time could be hyper social if he/she is active in outside activities. And it is possible for a student who attends a large traditional school to be antisocial. Given the amount the world has changed recently, we probably need to worry less about the social environment at school and more about the quality of the instruction. Then we can focus on what really helps with social development„ the hours after school. Specifically, we can concentrate on finding activities where a child can interact with people of different ages, learn how to negotiate on his/her own, explore uncommon things, and learn how to deal with setbacks. Most importantly, we need to get past our own experiences and allow our kids to encounter what is available today. If we do, our kids may have even fonder memories of their school years than we do.

CELEBRATE COMMUNITYCapitol Police arrested nearly 600 people Thursday after hundreds of loudly chanting women demonstrated inside a Senate office building against President Donald Trumps treatment of migrant families. Blake Rosemann: "Arrested for peacefully protesting. That sounds like the country our founding fathers left in search of freedom." Kelley Burnham Brown: "Who said it wasnt peaceful? Right to assembly is covered by the First Amendment. These charges will likely be dropped later." Kelly Duncan: "Trespassing? To demand their employees hear them out? In a building owned by the taxoayers? Kelly Duncan Kelley Burnham Brown, the sad thing is that we'll be spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for the court proceedings. This administration is sucking the treasury dry." Cynthia Ramer: "So sad. Unlawful demonstration. These women will do anything to get attention and disobeying the law is one. They have no respect for the laws of our land. Just doing what the democrats tell them to do." Mandy Holliger: "So much hate from you people. Have you forgotten about our constitutional right of Freedom of Assembly? I think everyone in this nation needs to reread the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, then start respecting those rights for everyone!!" Matthew Bonnin: "God bless the Patriots protesting Trump, god bless the progressives ready to actually lead, instead of electing an idiot complainer in chief." Carol Farriba: "These idiots should be mandated to attend classes on American History, American Government, Civis and the Constitution. Only after successful completion of said courses and show their ability to comprehend shall they be released back into society." Blake Rosemann: "We liberals are not the monsters you make us out to be. We love America. We love American citizens.

There are 183 days left in the year. This is Canada Day.Today's Highlight in History:On July 1, 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain as the British North America Act took effect.On this date:In 1535, Sir Thomas More went on trial in England, charged with high treason for rejecting the Oath of Supremacy. (More was convicted, and executed.) In 1916, during World War I, France and Britain launched the Somme Offensive against the German army; the 4 -month battle resulted in heavy casualties and produced no clear winner. Dwight D. Eisenhower married Mary ("Mamie") Geneva Doud in Denver. In 1946, the United States exploded a 20-kiloton atomic bomb near Bikini Atoll in the Paci“ c. In 1957, the International Geophysical Year, an 18-month global scienti“ c study, began. In 1961, Diana, the princess of Wales, was born in Sandringham, England. (She died in a 1997 car crash in Paris at age 36.) In 1980, "O Canada" was proclaimed the national anthem of Canada. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan nominated federal appeals court judge Robert H. Bork to the Supreme Court, setting off a tempestuous con“ rmation process that ended with Bork's rejection by the Senate. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush nominated federal appeals court judge Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, beginning an ultimately successful con“ rmation process marked by allegations of sexual harassment. The Warsaw Pact formally disbanded. In 1997, Hong Kong reverted to Chinese rule after 156 years as a British colony. Actor Robert Mitchum died in Santa Barbara, California, at age 79. In 2002, the world's “ rst permanent war crimes tribunal, the International Criminal Court, came into existence. A Russian passenger jet collided with a cargo plane over southern Germany, killing all 69 people, including 45 schoolchildren, on the Russian plane and the cargo jet pilots. DEAR ABBY: My husband has become very overweight, which has caused his sex drive „ as well as his health „ to suffer. I worry about him constantly, and I miss the intimacy we used to have. He is aware of how I feel and started trying to eat healthier. He also tries to exercise at least a little bit every day. The problem is he constantly falls off the wagon. Sometimes he says hes too tired to exercise, or he reverts back to his old habits and ends up eating fast food. He always tries again the next day, but he wont make much progress at the rate hes going. I dont want to nag him to death, but I do want him around for a long time. What can I say that will make him take this more seriously? „ ALL ABOUT HEALTH IN ALABAMADEAR ALL ABOUT HEALTH: Tell your husband how much you love him, and that youre afraid until death do us partŽ will happen prematurely if he continues killing himself with his fork and his sedentary ways. You might also recite the names of the various diseases that accompany obesity in most people. But if your husbands doctor hasnt been able to get the message through to him, there isnt much more you can do besides love him for the wonderful husband he is and keep your fingers crossed. I say this because the only person who can makeŽ your husband commit to a diet and exercise program is himself, with the recognition that changing his unhealthy patterns probably wont be easy and WILL take time.DEAR ABBY: Recently, my wife took two of our granddaughters (ages 9 and 15) and a friend (age 15) to the movies. As usual, the next day I found trash had been left in the car, which triggered the following text exchange. I sent both granddaughters a picture of a garbage can and my car and asked: Please advise which one is used to throw away trash? If you need help, ask your mom. Im not accusing anyone of anything. Also, if one of your friends was to throw trash on your Poppys car floor, what should you do? Would you ask them to pick it up „ yes or no?Ž The only response I received was from their mom, who said, Amber (granddaughter) did not leave trash in your car!Ž Things have gone downhill from there. I replied that I expected an answer to my questions, and that I hadnt accused anybody of anything. You would think I had shot someone! Many tears have been shed, and my wife has threatened to divorce me for standing my ground. We have agreed to have you settle this. What say you? „ TALKING TRASH IN SOUTH CAROLINADEAR TALKING TRASH: You are the injured party. You did nothing wrong. You are owed an apology from all concerned „ the kid who left the trash in your car, and your wife and daughter for overreacting.

Being able to organize it will be crucial to the plays of the day. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) „ This is brain science. When people have to work for something, they work for it harder and derive more pleasure from the experience. Don't make it too easy for people you love. Devotion grows with effort. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) „ Think about investment. If you want to know what's inside, you have to walk through the door. It's a risk.

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 1, 2018 E1 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW My column a fortnight ago, titled Diversity and Inclusion Harm,Ž focused on the dumbing down of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)curricula to achieve a more pleasing mixture of participants in terms of race and sex. Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, wrote about this in her article titled: How Identity Politics Is Harming the Sciences.Ž Mac Donald quoted a UCLA scientist who said, All across the country the big question now in STEM is: how can we promote more women and minorities by changing (i.e., lowering) the requirements we had previously set for graduate level study?Ž The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health are two federal agencies that fund university research, are consumed by diversity and inclusion ideology, and have the power to yank funds from a college if it has not supported a sufficient number of underrepresented minorities.Ž In recent years, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also has become consumed by diversity and inclusion. Prior to becoming so, the FAA worked with about 36 colleges to create the Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative. The colleges offered twoand four-year non-engineering aviation degrees requiring basic courses in air traffic control and aviation administration. Graduates of these programs became qualified candidates for training as air traffic control specialists. The FAA gave hiring preferences to veterans, those with AT-CTI program degrees, references from administrators and high test scores. In 2013, President Obama-appointed FAA Administrator Michael Huerta deemed these hiring standards had not produced a pleasing mix of air traffic controllers when it came to race and sex. He announced plans to transform the (FAA) into a more diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects, understands and relates to the diverse customersŽ it serves. The FAA discarded its longtime use of the difficult cognitive assessment test and implemented instead a new, unmonitored take-home personality test „ a biographical questionnaire. Among the questions asked are: The number of high school sports I participated in was...Ž How would you describe your ideal job?Ž What has been the major cause of your failures?Ž More classmates would remember me as humble or dominant?Ž In other words, the FAA opened air traffic control training to off-the-street hiresŽ „ any Englishspeaking citizen with a high school diploma. All air traffic control applicants are required to complete the biographical questionnaire. Those who passŽ Diversity shouldnt be used to discriminateThe latest in the lefts shrill attempt to undermine Trump is showing pictures of Obama-era detention centers with kids in chainlinked areas. Then they wax sanctimonious about how it is so cruel and that Trump is evil. They feel that acting with fake outrage gives them virtue. The media, which is the Democrat Party now, has tried this tactic for two years to undermine Trump. But he stands up to withering, misplaced blame and lies, and he just grows stronger. The jackals in the media, "deep state" and academia have become unhinged. Dems in N.Y. most recently went after the Trump Foundation, saying it is so bad it is almost as corrupt as the Clinton Foundation. Now this fake "Auschwitz-like" detention of illegal-immigrant kids has made them act all hot and bothered. But its not working. If the left is going to get their jaws around Trump, they are going to need a bigger porn starlet. Strengthening the border, post-Obama "Deporter in Chief," has not been easy. Trump wants the wall he promised us, and Dems go out of their way to deny him everything. Trump says in speeches, "The Great Wall of China worked!" Which is true; you hardly see a Mexican in China. So without "the Wall," he has done everything legally (all of which Clinton/ Bush/Obama did) to deter illegals at our border. Few of these kids come in with their parents; most are taken on the treacherous trip across Mexico by coyotes. The kids are used as shields to protect traffickers; most are not related, as they often claim. Putting kids in a very nice government facility with A/C, cartoons on TV, good food, health care, hygiene classes and education is somehow Auschwitz? My dad was a Marine; when he saw the facility on TV he said his barracks were not nearly as nice. Hell, Chicago housing projects are not that nice. I bet if we make these kids from war-torn areas go to Chicago, they would prefer to go back home for safety. In reality, illegals are costly to taxpayers. Schools, welfare, hospitals, crime, etc., end up costing us. Currently, DHS and FBI estimate 32 percent of U.S. prisoners are "known or suspected" aliens. Each one costs us about $40,000 a year to imprison and countless more to arrest and prosecute. We need an immigration policy that works. I am pro-immigration „ legal immigration. The left conflates any desire to control immigration with hatred of foreigners „ one of the many false premises that fuel their rhetoric. If you think unchecked immigration will not change a country, ask our Native Americans. My ancestors did not come here from England in 1752 just to see this country overrun by foreigners! They came here legally, seeking a better life than they had in Europe and to get away from having to watch soccer.Medias fake outrage over immigration policy Walter Williams Ron HartBy Doug SmithGuest columnistYoure just a kid,Ž George Mulligan said when, in response to his question, I had told him I was only 54. I felt anything but a kid at that time. I felt broken and needing to mend physically. I had just undergone arthroscopic ankle surgery to try to get back into the gameŽ of running, which I had enjoyed since I was 16. George opened up his backyard pool to me and became my coach, my sensei, my encourager, my advocate and my swimming pool provider. He gets credit for me not going crazy during the long six months or so when running was not an option. So how does it come about when people are so sad for a good man who lived such a good life for 86 years, and now he is suddenly gone? It was the vitality of George that has left those who love him in disbelief. This was a man who was not particularly tall, but he was a giant in the local athletic scene. His wrestling history was well known (father of wrestling in Bay County), but he was also a legend in the local running community, turning 21-minute 5Ks well into his 60s. Running turned to walking in his 70s, but the passion for swimming, biking and running lived on. The 100 or so age-group winner running trophies remain in his house, along with the collage of his four childrens and their four spouses FSU diplomas. The pool in Georges backyard was huge, about 20 feet by 48 feet long. George called it his creek.Ž Growing up in New Jersey, George loved the water and wanted to live by a creek. It is surrounded by small statues (Buddha and the Virgin Mary), covered areas with a decided Eastern feel, and a storage building for his bicycle and garden tools. There is a decided peace in the pool area, perhaps what the Chinese call feng shui. His family was everything to him. Unlike some of Georges older friends, George was surrounded by family, with three of his four children within a stones throw of his house, and the other (with horses not allowed in Georges neighborhood) also nearby. He talked to me about the gourmet meals on wheelsŽ that his family took to him regularly during the week. He spoke sadly of those he knew who were older and had little family available or willing to look after them, or to even care about them. George worried that young people today are in too much of a rush. We would talk about how when George was a young college student at Rutgers, many of his friends were in a great rush to secure that big job and then punch the clockŽ for the rest of their lives. George was not in a rush to get that one big job, and he had what one might call wanderlust for travel and adventure. Later in life when he settled down with the great love of his life (the famous late artist of Bay County, Barbara Laird Welch Mulligan) and their four children, George continued to love traveling, camping and seeking adventures with his family. We would talk about how crazy it was that children now are seemingly supposed to know what their chosen profession will be by the fifth grade. We both thought that was crazy. We also thought that it was fine for college graduates to take a little time to figure out what they wanted to do with their lives before actually settling on any one thing. George was a student of human potential, particularly when it came to athletics. He would talk about how the great athletes could maintain calm even during the greatest moments of athletic stress. He was a great teacher of the relationship of thought to physical performance. Stay calm. I knew that George and Barbara had traveled to China, and I asked him, What is tai chi?Ž He said tostand with your weight over one leg, and then shift your weight over the other leg, and then back and forth. That is the essence of tai chi „balance and the shifting of the body weight. One billion Chinese must know something. All of the local running community admired Georges commitment to exercise, and he regularly walked (at least three days a week) in the walking park behind the Garden Club with his longtime friends and former students at Bay High, Belle and Lila. We would sometimes be out running and see George walking home from the walking park, and he always would be walking on the curb. Why? He was working on balance, something all of us should work on as we defy time and aging. He was an avid cyclist. He passed away sitting on a bench at the walking park on a recent sunny Monday morning after his walk. But I had seen him riding his bike on Beach Drive just on that previous Thursday. I was told by family that he had biked 20 miles that Saturday. A couple weeks ago when the NBA season was wrapping up (he liked the Warriors), he was telling me all about how that Draymond Green liked to start trouble on the court, so George demonstrated on me the Draymond bump your chest against the other guys chest as you walked by the other guy move. I was just glad he didnt bump me any harder, or I think I would have ended up back in the pool. But that was George, a vital, strong and athletic person (age, 86, being just a number). I can still swim in Georges pool, but half the reason I went is now gone. When I go through the backyard gate to go swimming now, I still look right across the pool, his creek, under his little shelter area where he would sit and read The News Herald daily, cover to cover, but he is not there. I look into the screened porch, where he used to sit in the cooler winter months, but he is not there. However, when I go for a run or bike, and I see the couple walking along enjoying the outdoors, the young lady running, the guy cycling, or the kid on the skateboard, I see George because that was what he was all about, living an active and vital life. He wrote poetry, including one called Tin Cup SailorsŽ regarding Navy guys in World War II. He was a voracious reader, and he would lend me recommended books. He was a global citizen of the world, a person who could build anything and fix anything, a throwback, a Renaissance man, a man of letters, a family man, and, most of all, a man of activity. We all will miss him so, but lets remember, honor, and follow his example by leading a life of doing good, and doing it actively.The wisdom of living the George lifeSee WILLIAMS, E2 See HART, E2

** E2 Sunday, July 1, 2018 | The News Herald VIEWPOINTSBefore I sat down to write this column about what it means to be civil in todays political climate, I took my dog for a walk through our neighborhood. We live in the largest development built in the city of Cleveland since World War II. Its diverse, racially and economically, and home to many LGBTQ families, too. On most days, you cant walk half a block without talking to a neighbor. This morning, that neighbor was Kenn Johnson, who shared a recent story about what its like to be a 56-year-old black man shopping in a drugstore in todays America. Johnson has his masters in psychology and has spent much of his career supervising those who work with people with disabilities. More recently, he started his own consulting business, and hes also a political organizer. He uses a skin product that is available, in our neighborhood, at only two drugstores of the same chain. At one of those stores, he was scanning the shelves in the cosmetics aisle when a voice on the loudspeaker announced, Customer needs assistance in the cosmetics aisle.Ž He looked around. Nobody but me in the aisle,Ž he said. I didnt ask for help.Ž The store didnt have what he was looking for, so he drove to the other one. Again, he was the only person in the aisle. Again, after a few minutes, he heard over the loudspeaker, Customer needs assistance in the cosmetics aisle.Ž It was code,Ž he said. I was a black man shopping.Ž And for that, a security guard was alerted. Kenn told the story in the calmest of voices, but what he said next made me rethink my opinion of what happened to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders at a restaurant called The Red Hen. You can tell me you understand how I feel,Ž Kenn said, but until youre there with me and you are treated like me, you really arent walking in my shoes.Ž So much already has been said about what happened to Sanders after she and her party of eight walked into that little restaurant in Lexington, Virginia. As always, the facts matter. Several Red Hen employees are gay, which is one of many groups targeted by the Trump administration. They were uncomfortable to see the presidents chief propagandist in their midst, so they called the owner, Stephanie Wilkinson, who drove in from home. Tell me what you want me to do,Ž she said to her staff. They wanted Sanders to leave. Wilkinson did not attempt to publicly embarrass Sanders. She asked her to step out on the patio, where she explained why she wanted her to leave. Im not a huge fan of confrontation,Ž Wilkinson told The Washington Post. I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.Ž The reason Wilkinson was interviewed by the Post „ and why millions of Americans know about what happened at her restaurant „ is that Sanders used her government Twitter account, which has more than 3 million followers, to try to ruin The Red Hen, which seats 26 people. Sarah Sanders is a bully. Any discussion about her that raises the issue of civility is nothing but an intellectual exercise by people who arent worried enough about the harm her boss, the bully in chief, is inflicting on this country. Trump attacked The Red Hen on Twitter, too. Of course he did. Civility requires mutual respect. The Red Hen employees apparently understood this. If someone spends her days making clear her disregard for you and her willingness to harm you by parroting her bosss bigotry, no one should expect you to act as if it doesnt matter when shes not talking into a microphone. Anyone who argues otherwise is most likely not feeling the tremor of finding himself or herself in the crosshairs of this administration. Lucky you. If you, like me, are white and straight and were born an American citizen, it may be hard to understand why someone who isnt white or straight or wasnt born a U.S. citizen might not feel like being friendly to one of the architects of his or her demise. Thats our problem, this lack of empathy, and it sure is a small one compared with the terror seizing entire groups of people who arent like us. Except they are. Theyre just like us, in so many ways. Most caring people understand this, but insisting that good manners are the only route to the high road is to confuse civility with surrender. Compassion is doing whatever is necessary to heighten awareness. Its not always comfortable, and sometimes it can feel downright rude. Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with Creators Syndicate.Lets not confuse civility with surrender Connie Schultz Europe is a disaster because of immigration issues. London had so much immigrant crime (odd given Englands strict gun control laws) that Mayor Saddiq Khan had to outlaw knives. There is an object lesson for America: If you dont regulate your borders, you will eventually have to regulate your cutlery. Chain migration should end. Its a system where only the children of parents and grandparents who are already here are admitted, no matter how bad they are. Government adopted the policy from Piedmont Driving Club. It always ends an argument and creeps me out when Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and Attorney General Jeff Sessions start using the Bible to make their immigration political points. Maybe they feel the presence of Jesus all around them. If so, they must be in a Home Depot parking lot. It is important that we maintain fair trading arrangements with Mexico. It produces oil, tequila, Corona beer, Spring Break venues and a lot of weed. Mexico is also the top producer of Arizonans. Liberals in California do not have to worry too much about poor migrant workers invading L.A. They have a built-in wall that keeps them out: $4,500-a-month rent for two-bedroom apartments. The truth is border protection is a complex matter, full of government confusion that only the coyotes understand how to manipulate. They show up and get arrested. Deportation hearings can take years, so they just disappear into America and dont show up. It is so confusing when they do show up. Two illegal Mexican men appeared for a deportation hearing in a Los Angeles court and the judge instinctively married them.

HARTFrom Page E1are deemed eligible. The questionnaire gives more points to an applicant who answers that he has not been employed in the previous three years than it does to an applicant who answers that he has been a pilot or is a veteran with an air traffic control-related military background. Michael Pearson, an air traffic controller for 27 years who is suing the FAA, said, A group within the FAA, including the human resources function within the FAA „ the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees „ determined that the workforce was too white.Ž In an act of cowardice, a Republican-controlled Congress during President Obamas second term cut a deal allowing the FAA to hire half of new controllers based on race. Led by its president, William Perry Pendley, the Mountain States Legal Foundation has brought a discrimination suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of Andrew J. Brigida against U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao „ although, when this suit began, Anthony Foxx was the secretary of transportation. (When Chao became the secretary, she was automatically substituted as the defendant.) All Americans should hope the Mountain States Legal Foundation suit is successful in preventing the FAA from using race and sex as criteria for hiring. Passengers lives, regardless of sex and race, depend upon there being proficient air traffic controllers. Walter E.

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 1, 2018 E3 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEWThe Supreme Court ended its current term Wednesday by standing up for free speech and individual liberty in the face of coercion. In a 5-4 ruling, the justices held that states cant force government workers who choose not to join a labor organization to pay union dues. Shortly after the decision was released, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, paving the way for President Donald Trump to make his second appointment to the court. Lets hope his short list is confined to accomplished jurists inclined to embrace the constitutional principles of the Founders. The labor ruling was widely expected and overturns a 1977 decision which acknowledged that forcing nonmembers to pay for union political activity violated the Constitution but signed off on mandatory employee contributions „ so-called agency feesŽ „ to pay for collective bargaining. The finding was supposed to facilitate labor peaceŽ and to address free riders,Ž the derogatory term for workers who decline to join a labor group yet are covered by union-negotiated contracts. But Mark Janus, an Illinois state employee, sued to stop the practice, arguing the precedent created a distinction without a difference. Public-sector collective bargaining, he asserted, is inherently political, touching on policy issues such as the size of government and its fiscal trajectory. Mr. Janus maintained he did not support the policies espoused by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, so he should not be required to finance any of its activities, even collective bargaining. A majority of the court agreed „ and made it clear workers have a First Amendment right to withhold contributions to organizations with which they disagree. Neither an agency fee nor any other payment to the union may be deducted from a nonmembers wages,Ž Justice Samuel Alito wrote, nor may any other attempt be made to collect such a payment, unless the employee affirmatively consents to pay.Ž The decision is long overdue and a victory for freedom. The government has no business compelling workers, in any capacity, to help bankroll groups they dont support. To argue otherwise is to undermine the concepts of free speech and free association. The solution to free ridersŽ is to rescind the union monopoly on bargaining power. Union leaders and their allies have long feared Wednesdays ruling. For decades, they have been free to raise millions of dollars on the backs of nonmembers to help finance a massive war chest used to agitate for various progressive political endeavors or to support Democratic candidates. The Janus decision threatens to slow the cash flow. To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors,Ž wrote Thomas Jefferson, is sinful and tyrannical.Ž Jefferson was addressing religious freedom when he wrote that, but its just as applicable to state-mandated contributions to specific causes. If compulsion is all that can sustain Big Labors political machine, it deserves its fate.OUR VIEWSupreme Court deals public-sector unions a major blowThe Pew Research Center quiz was harder than I expected.Ž Ah, yes, you speak of the recently released survey in which Pew quizzed 5,035 adult Americans to determine their ability to distinguish between factual information and opinion statements in the news. Thats right. The Pew website lets anyone take a quiz featuring 10 statements, five that are true-or-false factual statements and five that are opinion statements. Pew told me to ignore whether or not a statement is accurate and also to ignore whether or not I agree with it. I follow the news and figured Id ace the quiz, but I didnt.Ž Lets take a look at the quiz. Pews first statement says, Abortion should be legal in most cases.Ž Did you classify that as a fact or an opinion? I classified it as an opinion and got it right. This is a contentious issue, but the statement is still an opinion.Ž Pews second statement said, Immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally have some rights under the Constitution. How did you classify that one?Ž Its factual. Look, its true that undocumented immigrants dont have the full rights of a U.S. citizen, but, according to the ACLU, our Constitution does afford them some rights, such as freedom of speech, religion, privacy and others. I struggled with Pews next statement, however.Ž That Democracy is the greatest form of government?Ž Yes. I classified it as a fact, because I strongly believe that democracy „ in our case a representative republic „ is the greatest, but the statement is, in truth, an opinion.Ž Its not always easy to separate ones strong beliefs and opinions from facts. Pew found each participant was more likely to classify both factual and opinion statements as factual when the statements validated his or her personal politics or beliefs. Thats probably why Pew chose 10 statements that may get people fired up, depending on their political points of view. Such as this one thats still driving conspiracy nuts crazy: President Barack Obama was born in the United States.Ž I correctly classified that as a fact. Which others did you get right?Ž Its a fact that Health care costs per person in the U.S. are the highest in the developed world, that Spending on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid make up the largest portion of the U.S. federal budget, and that ISIS lost a significant portion of its territory in Iraq and Syria in 2017.Ž Which opinions did you classify correctly?Ž Its an opinion, not a fact, that Immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally are a very big problem for the country today, and that A $15 federal minimum wage is essential to the health of the U.S. economy.  That leaves us with one more statement: Government is almost always wasteful and inefficient.  Even though I know that statement is an opinion, I couldnt resist classifying it as a fact!Ž You did better than most. Pew reports that only 26 percent of the adults surveyed correctly identified all five factual statements as factual, and just 35 percent identified all five opinion statements as opinion.Ž Thats worrisome.Ž To be sure. Our republic depends on a well-informed populace to remain strong. If the majority of our people cant differentiate between fact and opinion „ or fact and fiction, for that matter „ they can be easily misled. That doesnt bode well for our future.Ž Tom Purcell is a columnist with the Pittsburgh TribuneReview and Cagle Cartoons.Confusing facts and opinions ONLY ONLINEWRITE TO US: Letters should not exceed 300 words and include the writers name, address and phone number for veri“ cation.

CLASSIFIEDSSunday, July 1, 2018 | The News Herald | Page F7 OIL LEAK, THAT KEEPS ON LEAKINGƒ. James Morrisjames@masterautotech.comTHE AUTOADVISORNF-1183401 Find us, like us, ask us car questions on Facebook @ James Auto Center of Panama City. We are now taking calls Monday Friday; 6 to 6:30 am, 850-763-0555. You can watch my show on Fox 28 WPGX Monday through Friday from 6:00 to 6:30 am. I need some help on nding an oil leak in my 2003 Chevy 5.3-liter Silverado 172,000 miles. The engine oil leak appears to be coming from the rear crankshaft seal area of the engine. I pulled the transmission and replaced the rear crankshaft seal. After putting it back together (no easy job) I still have the same oil leak. I have had it to a shop since then and they say it appears to be a rear seal leak and not the oil pan or oil sending unit. This leak is a pretty good size leak and makes a mess in my driveway. Any suggestions on where to look or what might be leaking oil between my engine and transmission? David D.David, you said you changed the rear seal and it still leaks oil. You said on inspection the oil sending unit in the back of the engine is not leaking oil. These areas of the engine and the rear cam sensor are about the only items in the back of your engine that leak oil regularly. The cam sensor OŽ ring has been known to leak, making a hard diagnosis more dif cult. Here is my advice: go to NAPA Auto Parts and purchase (2) one once bottles of engine oil dye. If you dont have a black light and yellow glasses, now is the time to purchase them to solve this elusive oil leak. Wash your engine off from underneath with Purple PowerŽ bio-degradable soap and rinse off with a garden hose. Pour the engine oil dye into the engine and drive about 5 miles to give the oil a chance to leak out with the dye. (Dont drive too far, or you may have a bigger area covered with dye than you need) Take your black light and yellow glasses and start a methodical inspection of the outside of the engine. The oil dye will glow a shiny red trail when illuminated by a black light. Look closely to see if the oil dye is inside the transmission bell housing or running down the outside of the transmission. If the inspection reveals engine oil dye inside of the transmission bell housing, the transmission must be re-removed to pinpoint where the oil leak is coming from. (I know this is not an easy task) Once you remove the transmission, wash the engine oil dye and oil off and start the engine with the transmission removed. It will be loud and smelly from the rich exhaust, but you should be able to see what is leaking. Is it the crankshaft rear main seal? The cam sensor? Rear seal housing plate? Since the transmission is removed diagnosis should be a lot less troublesome. One area that I have seen leak on this engine that I failed to mention above, is the ex plate fastening bolts. If you see oil slinging from the rear seal when the engine is running, pay close attention to the ex plate bolts when you remove them. If fresh oil is behind these bolts, then the crankshaft has a casting aw that is allowing oil to migrate through to the ex plate threads. If so, use plumbers pipe thread sealer on your bolts and torque to speci cations. Restart your truck and verify the oil leak has stopped before you re-install your transmission.

4 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition By Marsha Maxwell More Content NowI ts easy to see how pets can teach children responsibility. A child as young as 3 can be responsible for giving pets water, and older children can take on tasks like walking the dog. Accomplishing tasks appropriate to their age, when taking care of the pet with their parents, makes a child feel more competent, according to child development experts Nienke Endenburg and Ben Baarda. In addition to increasing selfecacy, having pets can develop a childs relationship skills, especially empathy, e Washington Post reported. e reason is obvious: Caring for a pet draws a selfabsorbed child away from himself or herself. Hearing a kitten yowl when it wants to eat or seeing a dog run to the door when it wants to go outside get kids to think, What are their needs, and what can I do to help? according to the Post. Pets can also reduce stress, the Post reported. Researchers at the National Childhood Grief Institute studied children playing with therapy dogs. When the children petted the dogs, they visibly relaxed, and their blood pressure dropped. Interestingly, the dogs blood pressure was also reduced during these interactions. Babies who interact with pets, especially dogs, are exposed to benecial bacteria that reduce the chance of developing allergies, the Dallas Morning News reported. Researchers from the University of California San Francisco tested the gut bacteria of babies with and without dogs at home. For infants without pets, the guts bacterial ora (growth) was linked to allergic disease development at age 2, which diered when compared to the gut ora of infants with canine friends, according to Dr. Susan Lynch. Children with autism benet from interactions with pets, according to a study by researchers from the University of Missouri. e study focused on communication, cooperation, responsibility, empathy, engagement, self-control and assertion for children ages 8-18 with autism. Researchers concluded that the social skills of children with autism particularly in the area of assertion increased over time when there was a companion animal present, while problem behaviors decreased, according to a report by the Mohave Valley Daily News.How your children can benet from owning a petA dog, cat, guinea pig or iguana can be a childs best friend in ways you might not expect. Research shows how pets can benet a childs physical and emotional well-being

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 5 By Melissa Erickson, More Content NowYour kids are pushing for a family pet, but can you aord it? e joys of owning a cat or dog are innite, said Ed Sayres, former president of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. In order to provide a loving and safe home for our pets, however, we must ensure that our budgets can accommodate their needs. Pets can be unexpectedly expensive, said Natasha Ratli, spokeswoman for Rover.com, a Seattle-based pet-sitting website. Some of the costs that families should be aware of in the rst year of dog ownership include: One-time expenses for vaccinations, spaying and neutering, and purchasing a crate or bed. On average this comes to around $800. Monthly expenses for food, toys, poop bags and ea and tick medication. is adds up to about $75 per month, or $900 for the year. Annual expenses for routine exams, training, pet-sitting or emergency vet bills. Could range from $100 to $1,000 per year. Unexpected veterinary bills are the most surprising and most costly variables in dog ownership. While preventative care can go a long way, youll want to be prepared for any veterinary emergencies, like if your dog were to accidentally eat something he shouldnt, which they are known to do. Consider pet insurance, which will make unforeseeable expenses easier on your wallet, Ratli said. Certain dog and cat breeds have specic medical issues they are more genetically prone to, so before you adopt your breed of choice, do your research or check in with your local veterinarian.Budgeting for a pet

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 7 I f youre ying with your pet its best to plan in advance to be sure the furry members of your family are safe and comfortable. e rst question should be, does your pet really need to make the trip? For pets, ying can be stressful and result in injuries or even death. e Department of Transportation reported 29 dogs, cats and other animals died on commercial ights in the rst 10 months of 2016. Not all pets are suited for air travel. ings to consider include your pets temperament, any physical impairments, or if your pet suers from an illness, said Kim Salerno, president and founder, TripsWith-Pets.com. Before you begin your trip, be sure that your pet is up for the journey. is means a visit to the vet for a medical checkup and to ensure that your pet is up-to-date with all necessary vaccinations. Be sure to tell your vet about your plans to travel by air. Your vet can recommend to you whether your pet is suitable for this method of travel, Salerno said.Check your airlineBefore making the decision to y with your pet, an owner must look into airline policy to determine how the pet will be ying. ose airlines that allow pets to y in-cabin will only allow pets small enough to t in an airline-approved carrier which will t under the seat in front of you. If your pet is larger, some airlines allow pets to travel below-cabin, said Salerno, who does not recommend ying a pet below cabin unless absolutely necessary. If you have a choice to y your pet in-cabin or below-cabin, always choose in-cabin, Salerno said. Checking your pet as cargo is a bit more complicated than taking him in the cabin\ with you. It also carries some additional risk, as loss and injury are possible in your absence. However, 2 million pets take to the skies each year, and the vast majority arrive at their destinations safe and sound. Visit tripswithpets.com/airlinepetpolicies to see reviews of the major airlines policies.Other factorsPlanning ahead is crucial because the number of pets allowed on ights is limited. Making a reservation for your pet as early as possible will ensure your pet will have a spot and will allow you time to acclimate your pet to his/her pet travel carrier. It is not dicult to book a ight for your pet. However, it must be done by phone, Salerno said. e average price of a pet ticket ranges between $95 and $125 depending on the airline. Usually it costs about $100 one-way, Salerno said. You know your pet best, so the nal decision is yours keeping the best interest of your pet in mind, said Salerno.

8 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium EditionPacking essentialsSalerno advises: Health certicate: During your pre-trip vet appointment, ask your vet to issue a health certicate for your pet. is typically needs to be dated within 10 days of departure. Carry this with you while traveling with your pet, as it may be required at dierent points throughout your travel. Airline-approved pet carrier: Hard-sided and so-sided carriers are available. So-sided carriers are more suitable for carry-on and tend to t better under the seat. Follow the manufacturers recommendations as far as the appropriate size carrier for your pet. e proper size carrier should allow your pet to be able to lie down comfortably, stand up and turn around. Inspect for proper ventilation and comfort. Travel label: Ax a travel label to the carrier with your name, the name of your nal destination or contact person, home and nal destination addresses, as well as your home, cell and nal destination phone numbers. Proper collar and ID: Fit your pet with a collar that cant get caught in carrier doors. Ax two pieces of identication on the collar a permanent ID with your name and home address and telephone number and a temporary travel ID with the address and telephone number where you or a contact person can be reached. Feeding: Do not feed your pet for four to six hours before air travel. Small amounts of water can be given before the trip. If possible, secure a collapsible travel bowl to the inside of the carrier and place a few ice cubes in it. Photo: Bring along a current photo of your pet. is will make it easier for others to help you nd your pet should your pet get separated from you. Leash: Carry a leash with you so that you may walk your pet before check-in and aer arrival. Do not place the leash inside the carrier or attach it to the outside of the kennel. Salernos tips for a smooth and successful trip: Non-peak ights: Consider booking a non-peak ight, which typically means fewer passengers and more cabin room. is will help ease potential stress for your pet. Direct ights: Use direct ights. Changing planes may cause undue stress on your pet, particularly if layover time is not adequate for a pet walk and bathroom break. Flights and extreme temperatures: If traveling during the summer or winter months, choose ights that will accommodate the temperature extremes, particularly if your pet is traveling below the cabin. Same ight and notify airline sta: Always travel on the same ight as your pet. Ask the airline if you can watch your pet being loaded and unloaded below the cabin. In addition, when you board the plane, notify a ight attendant that your pet is traveling with you as special precautions may be taken. Breed considerations: Do not ship pug-nosed dogs or cats such as Pekingese, Chow Chows and Persians in the cargo hold. ese breeds have short nasal passages that leave them vulnerable to oxygen deprivation and heat stroke in poorly ventilated and cooled areas. Be early: Have everything packed early and leave early to allow plenty of time to deal with normal air travel as well as your pets needs. Keep yourself calm before the ight as pets sense your stress and anxiety. Carrier familiarization: Give your pet at least a month before your ight to become familiar with the travel carrier. is will minimize his or her stress during travel. In addition, include a favorite toy or item with your scent in the carrier with your pet for comfort. Trim nails: Make sure that your pets nails have been clipped to protect against their hooking in the carriers door, holes and other crevices. No tranquilizers: Do not give your pet tranquilizers unless your veterinarian prescribes them. Make sure your veterinarian understands that the prescription is for air travel. Upon arrival: When you arrive at your destination, open the carrier as soon as you are in a safe place and examine your pet. If anything seems wrong, take your pet to a veterinarian immediately. Get the results of the examination in writing, including the date and time.

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 9 By Melissa Erickson, More Content Now C ommon household products, foods and plants can be dangerous or even deadly to pets. e No. 1 source of pet suocation may be a surprise: chip bags. Bonnie Harlan, founder of Prevent Pet Suocation, learned the hard way. In 2011, her 4-year-old rescue dog Blue raided the trash, got a Cheetos bag stuck on his head and suocated. She came home and found her dog laying motionless in a corner. It was a drastic death. I had no idea that this seemingly innocuous 9-ounce chip bag could be so deadly, Harlan said. She founded Prevent Pet Suocation to educate the public on the suocation hazards of chip bags and similar food packaging. is tragedy is far more common than pet owners realize, said Lindsey Wolko, founder, Center for Pet Safety. At least two to three pets are lost each week in the United States to snack bag suocation, and these are just the ones that get reported, Harlan said. Many people whose dogs have suocated in these types of bags were only gone from the house for 20 to 30 minutes, she said. Many people mistakenly believe that a dog or cat can simply remove a chip bag from his head with his front paws or tear through it with his claws. is is simply not the case, Harlan said. We all know that pets are foodmotivated, so the smell of crumbs or salty residue at the bottom of food packaging will attract your pet and in some cases be too tempting to resist, Wolko said. Pets focus on the food, then get their head stuck inside of the bag or container, and the packaging seals around their airway. Suocation occurs within minutes. e outcome is devastating for the pet owner because it is 100 percent preventable. Harlan came up with a easy solution: Cut o the top and bottom of the food bag before disposing it. is applies to chip, cereal, popcorn and cracker packaging, which all could be hazardous to your pet. Even pet food bags can pose a suocation risk. Never leave them out where a pet can get a hold of them, Harlan said. Other tips to keep your pet safe: Store chips, snacks and pet food in resealable plastic containers. Serve chips and snacks in bowls or containers instead of bags. Keep trash can lids tightly fastened, locked or behind a cabinet. Keep kitchen pantry door closed. Learn CPR for pets. Do not allow your pets to roam freely in the house while you are away. Alert friends and family about the suocation dangers of bags. Educate children, petsitters and babysitters about pet suocation prevention. Be vigilant during family and holiday gatherings.

10 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium EditionBy More Content NowA pproximately 48 million Americans face food insecurity every day, according to Feeding America, a non-prot organization and network of more than 200 food banks. at means they, and their pets, face uncertain access to a sucient amount of aordable, healthy food. People who face food insecurity should not have to sacrice the unconditional love and companionship pets bring to their lives, says Joann Fuller, U.S. Shelter Engagement Manager for Hills Pet Nutrition. Most food pantries also accept pet food donations. So when you drop o a bag of dog or cat food, youre helping a family in need take care of their best friend. Here are six simple ways you can help families in need care for their pets: *Have you ever bought a bag or case of pet food your pet wouldnt eat? Consider donating it to your local food pantry. Many pantries provide volunteers with printed paper bags to use in gathering food donations. Ask your local food pantry for some donation bags and drop them o at homes in your neighborhood. Include a note asking for pet food donations and let your neighbors know when youll be back to pick up the lled bags and deliver them to the food pantry. Contact your local homeless shelter to nd out what they need to help care for the pets of the homeless people in your community. Donating extra blankets and pet sweaters could help keep those pets warm throughout the winter. Shelters for victims of domestic violence may need help with temporary housing for pets of families in transition. Contact your local shelter to see if they have a fostering program that needs volunteers.Seniors who no longer drive may have trouble accessing regular veterinary care for their pets. Check with your local senior center or countys department of senior services to see if you can volunteer to drive seniors and their pets to veterinary appointments.Contact your veterinary clinic or others in your area to see if they have programs in place to provide free or reduced-cost medical care to pets in need. You may be able to donate cash or supplies, or simply volunteer your time.When families are struggling with food insecurity, homelessness, nancial hardship or transition, they need the unconditional love of their pets more than ever, Fuller says. By helping provide for pets, youre also doing something good for the humans who love them and thats something you can feel good about all year long. Ways to help pets and their families in need

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 11 I ts not dicult to spot Bobos red service dog vest. Bobo serves as Danielle Dani Kneislys seizure assistance dog, and the two are constantly by each others sides. However, it is important to look beyond the vest and fully understand the help he brings to 20-year-old Kneisly, her family and those around her. Kneisly has a condition called isolated pachygyria, a neurological brain disorder, which causes recurrent seizures. At worst, Kneisly has experienced up to 40 seizures in a month, 18-20 a day, causing constant worrying for her family. In the hopes of gaining some peace of mind, Kneislys mother, Kim Bish, began researching seizure assistance dogs from 4 Paws for Ability and soon realized it would be the perfect t for her daughter. Seizure assistance dogs are specically trained for those living with epilepsy or seizure disorders and can help alert to its handlers seizures. Bobo was matched with Kneisly over four years ago. Bish recalls the instant bond formed between the two when they attended training at the 4 Paws for Ability facility prior to bringing Bobo home for the rst time. He would immediately lay right beside Dani in her bed, and I just knew that he was going to t in ne. Bobo is trained to alert to Kneislys seizures and can even prealert to her seizures. Aside from barking to let those around Kneisly know shes having a seizure, he will sit or lay on her to prevent her from standing up and hurting herself. Bobo has provided greater independence for Kneisly and her family. Before, it was dicult for Bish to sleep through the night for fear of her daughter experiencing a seizure while she slept, a common occurrence for those with seizure disorders. Now with the help of Bobo, Bish has peace of mind knowing that Bobo will bark and wake her up if Kneisly is experiencing a seizure.

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 13 Raising your own ock of backyard chickens provides a reliable source of wholesome eggs, and chicken droppings provide excellent fertilizer for the garden, Steele says. From the coop to the garden to the kitchen, its a fun and rewarding way for families to spend time together, and raising poultry teaches about a sustainable lifestyle. Spring is the perfect time to start a backyard ock, Steele says. Here are some tips to get you started: Before buying chicks, prepare. eyre babies and will need special care, including a brooder guard to help keep them warm. is can be as simple as a cardboard box or circular cardboard fence. Add a heat source, such as a 250-watt infrared bulb placed 18 inches above the ground. Disinfect the area with chlorine or ammonia and spread a few inches of wood shavings on the ground. e day before bringing chicks home, turn on the lamp to ensure the litter is thoroughly warm. Poultry require clean, fresh water at every age. A 1-gallon chick waterer refreshed regularly will provide plenty of hydration for a small ock. Keep the lamp on 24 hours a day during the rst week the chicks are in their new home, and then gradually reduce the amount of light to 12 to 13 hours per day. Pay attention to how the chicks behave. If they crowd into the corners of the brooding area, away from the lamp, they may be feeling too warm. If they chirp a lot and huddle under the lamp in a pile, they may be feeling cold. At 6 weeks old, chicks should be ready to move into their chicken coop. You can purchase a wide selection of chicken coops and hutches, or nd detailed instructions for building coops online. Chicks require dierent kinds of feed than adult birds. Until theyre about 8 weeks old, chicks should eat a special chick starter feed with more of the protein that young birds need. Feed them following the bag directions, but only buy a months supply at a time to ensure the minerals and vitamins stay fresh. Between eight and 18 weeks, your ock should be eating grower feed. A grower formulation helps a young hen develop into a reliable egg layer. At 18 weeks, your ock can transition to adult feed. To encourage egg production, a feed with 16 to 20 percent protein is recommended. Layer feed contains calcium so eggshells stay hard. In about 24 weeks, your ock will be established, and your family can begin enjoying fresh, wholesome eggs every day. As well, home gardeners will enjoy the natural pest control and outstanding fertilizer chickens naturally provide. Truly, for Americans looking to live more sustainably and embrace the backyard-to-table movement at home, backyard poultry is the next big thing in food.

He starts drooling when he knows well be leaving, and if we actually leave, he will tear up his crate to get out and start tearing up the house. Is there any way he could ever get over this condition without some sort of medication? Answer: Because its common for us to want a quick x, pharmaceutical answers are sometimes the rst thing we think of. Could some sort of tranquilizer work in your situation? Quite possibly yes, in a way, but if it were my dog, I would probably resolve to do the footwork to remediate his problem. is takes longer, but when its xed, its xed. And your dog doesnt have to spend the rest of his life periodically doped up. Because its normal for us to make a big fuss over our dog when we leave and return, amending our behavior during arrival and departure is the rst piece in the formula to help Max get over his problem. In your case, I would totally ignore your dog for 30 minutes before you leave and for 30 minutes aer you arrive home. No eye contact, no words, no anything. is makes your comings and goings more balanced and doglike. e second thing to do would be to analyze all the things you normally do before you leave the house. Like put on makeup, or go to the bathroom, change clothes, etc. Of course the last thing you do is probably get your purse and your car keys. So I want you to periodically go through all the motions of leaving, doing all those things. en, dont leave. All About DogsQuestions and answers about a variety of dog ownership issues 16 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition By Kathryn Sucich, More Content Now O nce upon a time, it seemed that dogs and cats were the only pets around the house. But these days, people are increasingly adding exotic pets, such as iguanas, chinchillas and ferrets, to their families. Dr. Tom Edling, director of veterinary medicine at Petco Animal Supplies, says that while most of these pets can be great family companions, they do have dierent temperaments and qualities that you need to be aware of before you buy.IguanasWhile iguanas seem cute when young, Edling warns they can quickly grow to an unmanageable size. When full-grown at age 5 or 6, iguanas are typically about 6 feet long. ey need either a full-room cage or an outdoor cage and require a hot, humid habitat. SnakesSnakes work well with families that are not home a lot and dont want constant interaction with their pet, Edling says.

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 21 Undoubtedly Maxs anxiety starts well before you leave the house. Your departure routine is his cue to start freaking out about your impending exit. Sometimes youll leave aer doing those things, but sometimes you wont. Ultimately this desensitizes him to the idea of you leaving, because sometimes youll go through all the motions of leaving, then sit down and turn on the TV instead. Its also a good idea to work on the stay cue in the way I described last month. Stick with doing it in the house for now, gradually increasing his time 1 minute a day, and work up to being in another room, and over a period of time, at the other end of your house. Teaching your dog to stay builds his maturity and condence. e nal and most time consuming part of this work is to leave the house for progressively longer and longer periods of time until Max no longer sweats the idea of you leaving, because remember, in a well balanced pack, its completely normal for the leader to leave and then return. Start with 1 minute. So go through your routine, get in the car, drive around the block or down the street, and time it so youre walking back through the door in exactly 60 seconds. No arrival greeting and ignore him for 30 minutes. Stay with 1 minute at least 5 times over the course of 3 or 4 days. Aer that, increase his time every 2 days, no more than 4 minutes. When you nally get to about 90 minutes, you may be out of the woods. lf you follow this method along with the fake departure routine and consistent, progressive stay training, over time, Max should pull out of his irrational fear of his leader being gone.For greeting unfamiliar dogs, know the right approachQuestion: What is the best way to greet a dog? Answer: ere are many of us who just love dogs and we want to meet and pet them all! But according to federal statistics, about 4.5 million dog bites happen each year year in the U.S., so having a method to read a dogs body language, and knowing how to approach and greet him, is a good thing to know. If a dog has a human with him, ask the dog owner rst if its OK to say hello. I know that seems like common sense, but youd be surprised. Also, some people say the position of the tail matters. Upright and wagging stiy? is is not good. at particular tail carriage will likely be accompanied by a closed mouth, sti upright posture and forward ears. is is a dominant body language, and hes not happy to see you, so take a raincheck on that dog.

Chinchillasese rodents can be great for families who want a happy, interactive pet, Edling says. ey live to 10 to 15 years, so dont buy them thinking theyll be a short-term pet. Chinchillas do require a lot of space to exercise, so youll need to buy a multi-level cage. FerretsFerrets can be very playful pets, but Edling says theyre not trainable and can nip, so kids need to be supervised during playtime. Ferrets also sleep about 20 hours a day, so they wont play for long periods of time.TipsMake sure your kids understand they can mishandle and hurt their pets. For playtime, have your child sit on the ground with the pet in a box. And always make sure your pets feet are well-supported so it feels secure. Also, clean all cages once a week.

What things can I do to develop her into a well-mannered companion? Answer: Creating a well-behaved, balanced, cooperative dog who complies with the simple things you ask and is comfortable in any setting starts with giving her as many dierent social scenarios as you can in the rst year. is, along with basic obedience, is one key to creating a balanced pack. A dog can achieve a cognitive vocabulary equivalent to a 3 year old, so its important to discipline yourself at this stage of her development. Do not use any superuous words when you communicate with her, except when oering verbal praise. (When were praising, its more about the tone and positive energy of it, so the words can change a little from time to time.) e point is to gure out what words (cues) or group of words you want to use for the scenarios youll share on a regular basis. ese will include being brushed, having her teeth and nails examined, being bathed, going outside, coming indoors, getting into the crate, going to the bathroom, getting a drink of water, eating, meeting a dog or a person, disregarding a dog or a person, getting into or out of a car, going upstairs or downstairs and going to bed. Not to mention the ve basics of come, sit, down, stay and heel. But if you use unnecessary words, ones that you probably wont use in this situation next time, then youre spinning your wheels in terms of teaching language to your dog. Use the same words for the same things, every time. For the rst several months, every single life situation the two of you encounter together is a training opportunity. When Fluy starts to connect words with activities, then youll be getting some real traction in terms of eective communication. Because of the way our hearts are wired, its natural for us to think the most important thing our dog needs is love and aection. But sometimes the human loving heart can get in the way of being an eective leader. And while I do think loving our dogs the way we do is really important, and its an amazing and beautiful thing, I think its probably more important to us than our dog. And technically, what our dog needs more than anything else, is leadership and exercise. ese are equally important. Leash work is vital to your 18 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 23 endeavor to be Fluys leader. She must learn how to walk on a slack leash in an orderly fashion. In her head, whoever leads on the leash, is the leader, and this is the most basic of the basics and the cornerstone to your leadership. Show me a dog who walks casually on a slack leash with their human, and Ill show you a well-balanced, symbiotic relationship every time. But before you tear o on your own, consult a book or a pro about how to go about it. e worst thing you could do would be to create a bad leash experience for your puppy. You want her to love her leash, not hate it, and there are a thousand books out there, not to mention the Internet. Short, upbeat, enthusiastic lessons are always the best, and positive reinforcement (via love and aection) is how you dial in behaviors. Being the leader has much to do with reinforcing rules and boundaries, but more important, you should be the most interesting, exciting thing in your dogs world. Dont start with a retractable leash Question: I like the idea of a retractable leash, but my dog is all over the place when I use it. Am I using the right type of leash? Answer: Retractable leashes are pretty popular nowadays, but there are some caveats to using one, and lm denitely not in favor of a retractable leash for a pups rst foray into leash training. Once your dog knows how to heel (walk at your side), will stop, start and turns with you in a coordinated fashion, then perhaps you can go to a retractable leash. But you still would have to know how to use one, and theres a denite learning curve. Retractables are a great way to get line burn on your hands from grabbing it in a panic or for getting wrong-sided around a bush or a pole. And theyre easy to drop. One method to get a pup accustomed to a leash is to let her drag a short one around for a while. at wont work with a retractable. Aer your pup has dragged a short leash around for a bit, switch to a standard 6-foot nylon leash for walking. ese are the ticket for learning. On the business end of a standard leash, l prefer the sliding button type clasp, which is a spring-loaded, thumb-operated button that slides a moveable post back and forth to open and close the clasp. Because puppies want to put their mouth on everything, the same will hold true for his leash. e solution is simple. Just snatch it out of her mouth, saying No! Aer a few times, shell get the idea. When we rst teach her to walk on the leash, we really dont want to create what I call a bad leash experience, because ultimately she should love the leash. She just needs to learn to do it in an orderly way. To keep from traumatizing your puppy on her new leash, keep things casual. In other words, theres no need to haul her around and be jerking on her. You dont want her to think I hate my leash. e only rules at rst are: 1) We have to keep moving, and 2), you cant get ahead of me. If she wants to zigzag back and forth initially, thats ne; just keep the back and forth movement behind you. So before she gets ahead of you, draw the leash behind you to bring her back to your side. For now, shes learning the rst concepts of traveling with the pack. Once she keeps up well, has made friends with not trying to get ahead of you, and only stops to sni when you give her permission, then you can insist she heel on one side. Baby steps, right?

I know you do not recommend prong collars or shock collars, so whats the best way to proceed? Answer: Almost always, the best collar to use for leash training is a lightweight slip collar. I also like to use a standard 6-foot leash. e chain version of a correction or slip collar is commonly called a choke chain, but if youre choking your dog with it, youre not using it correctly. Additionally, the bottom of your dogs neck is the very strongest part, but the very top of his neck is very tender. Even if hes a Great Dane. is is why you see leads adjusted up very high in dog shows.

He starts drooling when he knows well be leaving, and if we actually leave, he will tear up his crate to get out and start tearing up the house. Is there any way he could ever get over this condition without some sort of medication? Answer: Because its common for us to want a quick x, pharmaceutical answers are sometimes the rst thing we think of. Could some sort of tranquilizer work in your situation? Quite possibly yes, in a way, but if it were my dog, I would probably resolve to do the footwork to remediate his problem. is takes longer, but when its xed, its xed. And your dog doesnt have to spend the rest of his life periodically doped up. Because its normal for us to make a big fuss over our dog when we leave and return, amending our behavior during arrival and departure is the rst piece in the formula to help Max get over his problem. In your case, I would totally ignore your dog for 30 minutes before you leave and for 30 minutes aer you arrive home. No eye contact, no words, no anything. is makes your comings and goings more balanced and doglike. e second thing to do would be to analyze all the things you normally do before you leave the house. Like put on makeup, or go to the bathroom, change clothes, etc. Of course the last thing you do is probably get your purse and your car keys. So I want you to periodically go through all the motions of leaving, doing all those things. en, dont leave. All About DogsQuestions and answers about a variety of dog ownership issues

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 25 For overweight dogs, time for new routineQuestion: How can I tell if my dog is overweight, and is it really important? Answer: We know going into a relationship with a dog that invariably somewhere down the road, well get our hearts ripped out. We simply almost always outlive our dog, as theyre relatively short-lived animals. So in my world, I always want to do everything I can to postpone that pain. Statistics show that almost half the dogs in the U.S. are overweight. at number is around 45 percent, with obesity being the No. 1 nutrition-related problem in dogs. Its not unheard of for a dog to have some type of metabolic or thyroid problem, but the main cause of canine obesity, of course, is overfeeding. My theory on this syndrome, perpetrated by us, is that we tend to indulge our doggie by being nice. at indulgence makes us feel better, but a lifetime of treats and between-meal snacks shortens Maxs life. And overweight dogs are prone to a ton of medical problems such as heart disease, cancer and canine diabetes. Not to mention, an obese pooch will suer from constant fatigue and inevitably have joint problems. To tell if Max is overweight, see if you can feel his ribs. If you cannot, he is overweight, period. A normalsize dog will have an obvious waistline too, so when you look at him from above, youll see an indentation at his hips as opposed to a straight line. A plump dogs tummy will sag and there will be a straight line underneath when you look at him from the side, instead of getting narrower with a tuck toward his rear. An overweight dogs back will seem broad and at as well. Your vet can help you evaluate Maxs weight and give you an idea of how much he needs to lose. He can also tell you about how much he should be eating. e overall aim, of course, will be to reduce his caloric intake. Increasing his exercise will be necessary as well (sort of the same plan as for us humans.) Youll need to amend Maxs treat protocol if you are serious about this. Dont let this hurt your heart. is isnt mean. Youre doing this so your loving companion will live longer. A typical dog biscuit is like a candy bar for Max. Wheat, corn and soy is not good for him in any form to begin with. But dog treats are big ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 21 Undoubtedly Maxs anxiety starts well before you leave the house. Your departure routine is his cue to start freaking out about your impending exit. Sometimes youll leave aer doing those things, but sometimes you wont. Ultimately this desensitizes him to the idea of you leaving, because sometimes youll go through all the motions of leaving, then sit down and turn on the TV instead. Its also a good idea to work on the stay cue in the way I described last month. Stick with doing it in the house for now, gradually increasing his time 1 minute a day, and work up to being in another room, and over a period of time, at the other end of your house. Teaching your dog to stay builds his maturity and condence. e nal and most time consuming part of this work is to leave the house for progressively longer and longer periods of time until Max no longer sweats the idea of you leaving, because remember, in a well balanced pack, its completely normal for the leader to leave and then return. Start with 1 minute. So go through your routine, get in the car, drive around the block or down the street, and time it so youre walking back through the door in exactly 60 seconds. No arrival greeting and ignore him for 30 minutes. Stay with 1 minute at least 5 times over the course of 3 or 4 days. Aer that, increase his time every 2 days, no more than 4 minutes. When you nally get to about 90 minutes, you may be out of the woods. lf you follow this method along with the fake departure routine and consistent, progressive stay training, over time, Max should pull out of his irrational fear of his leader being gone.For greeting unfamiliar dogs, know the right approachQuestion: What is the best way to greet a dog? Answer: ere are many of us who just love dogs and we want to meet and pet them all! But according to federal statistics, about 4.5 million dog bites happen each year year in the U.S., so having a method to read a dogs body language, and knowing how to approach and greet him, is a good thing to know. If a dog has a human with him, ask the dog owner rst if its OK to say hello. I know that seems like common sense, but youd be surprised. Also, some people say the position of the tail matters. Upright and wagging stiy? is is not good. at particular tail carriage will likely be accompanied by a closed mouth, sti upright posture and forward ears. is is a dominant body language, and hes not happy to see you, so take a raincheck on that dog. A fearful dog may have a lowered tail, lowered ears and possibly a furrowed brow, along with a

He might not like some of those things, but some of them he will love. eyre low cal and a lot more natural for your domestic wolf than a Milkbone. You can help him cope with an overall calorie reduction by feeding him smaller portions more frequently through the day, too. If youre not walking your dog you need to start. If hes a working or herding breed, its safe to say hell need at least two thirty-minute walks a day. Maybe more. Little dog srequire less exercise in most cases, but you still have to get out there and walk. If you do currently walk your dog, just bump up the time a little bit. Naturally, heat precautions are important now, so walking early or late is best, but start adding some time to your walk, and keep your pace brisk instead of leisurely. Keep pushing the length a little more every few days. Dont allow Max to dally and dont stop for sning any more frequently than every ve or six minutes at the most. Exercise is the priority, not sning. If you help your dog lose some weight, youll both feel better, and he most certainly will live longer.For a jumper, timings everythingQuestion: We have an 8-monthold Lab who will not stop jumping on us and everybody else, too. Weve tried everything to no avail. How can we x this annoying problem? Answer: When a dog jumps on you, hes excited. Its basically just a rude hello. But another dog who considers himself of higher rank would quickly ward o being jumped on, and since we always want to communicate the proper message about whos who in the pack, this is the main reason, as a leader, your rule here must be: You cant put your paws on me. is applies even if your dog is a little guy. Its the principle of the thing (and he gets it). In the absence of appropriate boundaries, your dog gets the wrong message about your respective positions in the pack. Max will learn not to jump on others by rst learning not to jump on you, and when it comes to thwarting a jumper, timing is everything. You must anticipate his jump. For a big, super unruly dog, you may have to quickly bring your knee up into his chest as he tries to jump on you. is has to happen really fast, however, and he should have no idea what happened. You must be more persistent than the dog and essentially outlast him. Its a battle of wills, but its just business. Once he gives up on the jumping idea (and he will), praise him. Teach him that he wont get petted unless all fours are on the ground, and be consistent with petting him only during those intervals. To keep him from jumping on people, use a leash and good timing. Let him sni the person on a slack leash, and praise him for that. But as soon as you see those paws come o the ground, correct with a tug and a no! en go slack again. Give him the option to choose, as opposed to just holding 22 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition tightly closed mouth. Fear-biting is common. If a dog isnt interested, leave him be. A loosely wagging tail midline or lower, an open mouth and relaxed ears are almost always a good sign. Be patient. Keep your breathing easy and relaxed and dont bend over the dog. Standing over a dog is a dominant posture. Squat sideways to him and with a minimum of chatter, allow him to come to you. Simply extend the back of your wrist to him to invite him to sni without making eye contact. is body language says, l am no threat. Dont inadvertently show your teeth, as in a smile. A smile to us means friendly, but in his language, it says back o. Aer he snis a little, you can slowly move your hand under his chin (not on top of his head). is way he can see where your hand is going. Pet him gently on the chest or on the side of the face. Until you can tell he enjoys being petted, dont pet his back. When you do ultimately talk to him, speak in a monotone, friendly voice, at a lower register. ese common sense precautions can keep you or one of your kids from becoming a statistic.Choice of words matters, especially with pupsQuestion: My 3-month-old puppy has had all her shots and Im starting to bring her places with me. What things can I do to develop her into a well-mannered companion? Answer: Creating a well-behaved, balanced, cooperative dog who complies with the simple things you ask and is comfortable in any setting starts with giving her as many dierent social scenarios as you can in the rst year. is, along with basic obedience, is one key to creating a balanced pack. A dog can achieve a cognitive vocabulary equivalent to a 3 year old, so its important to discipline yourself at this stage of her development. Do not use any superuous words when you communicate with her, except when oering verbal praise. (When were praising, its more about the tone and positive energy of it, so the words can change a little from time to time.) e point is to gure out what words (cues) or group of words you want to use for the scenarios youll share on a regular basis. ese will include being brushed, having her teeth and nails examined, being bathed, going outside, coming indoors, getting into the crate, going to the bathroom, getting a drink of water, eating, meeting a dog or a person, disregarding a dog or a person, getting into or out of a car, going upstairs or downstairs and going to bed. Not to mention the ve basics of come, sit, down, stay and heel. But if you use unnecessary words, ones that you probably wont use in this situation next time, then youre spinning your wheels in terms of teaching language to your dog. Use the same words for the same things, every time. For the rst several months, every single life situation the two of you encounter together is a training opportunity. When Fluy starts to connect words with activities, then youll be getting some real traction in terms of eective communication. Because of the way our hearts are wired, its natural for us to think the most important thing our dog needs is love and aection. But sometimes the human loving heart can get in the way of being an eective leader. And while I do think loving our dogs the way we do is really important, and its an amazing and beautiful thing, I think its probably more important to us than our dog. And technically, what our dog needs more than anything else, is leadership and exercise. ese are equally important. Leash work is vital to your

Youll be back and forth between praising and correcting, but hell get it if youre consistent. is training takes time and patient, resolute persistence, but if you make this rule non-negotiable, Max will change. How to stop a countertop snacker Question: I have a male Lab who will be 2 in a couple of months, and is still somewhat unruly. For one thing, Rocko steals food o the countertops. What can I do about this, and will this ever end? Answer: Your dog sounds like a pretty typical Labrador Retriever. Even though Labs are one of the most beloved breeds in America, anyone familiar with these wonderful dogs, knows it can take them quite some time to mature. Some can take up to three years to be mature and more focused. So yes, hell grow out of this phase, but in the meantime, youll have to weather the storm, providing balanced leadership in the form of consistent rules and boundaries. Anything around your food is a no-no for your dog, and I dont mean your dog cant sometimes eat a little people food. But he should only eat it out of his own dish. We should never set a precedent of allowing our dog to snack from us when were prepping or eating food. Your wolf understands on a primal level: When the leaders eat, the subordinates stay away from the food. Not following this protocol gives him the wrong idea about where he falls in the pack hierarchy. Because counter surng is related to food, you have to win this battle. If you can keep Rocko away from the kitchen area completely, thats one way to deter him, but it would be OK to allow him in the kitchen if you feel like it, as long as you provide vigilant supervision. eoretically, aer a while, he simply learns the rule because you get good at timely enforcement of a counter boundary. If you cant cordon o your kitchen, youll have to teach him one way or another counter surng wont be fun, either because he gets a loud NO! and an unceremonious push, or something else, and these corrections must happen within 3 seconds. You can try stretching a length of tinfoil along each of your counters, and when he puts his paws up there because it has a funny texture and makes an odd sound, it may act as a deterrent. You can also put mouse traps underneath the tinfoil at 10 inch ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 23 endeavor to be Fluys leader. She must learn how to walk on a slack leash in an orderly fashion. In her head, whoever leads on the leash, is the leader, and this is the most basic of the basics and the cornerstone to your leadership. Show me a dog who walks casually on a slack leash with their human, and Ill show you a well-balanced, symbiotic relationship every time. But before you tear o on your own, consult a book or a pro about how to go about it. e worst thing you could do would be to create a bad leash experience for your puppy. You want her to love her leash, not hate it, and there are a thousand books out there, not to mention the Internet. Short, upbeat, enthusiastic lessons are always the best, and positive reinforcement (via love and aection) is how you dial in behaviors. Being the leader has much to do with reinforcing rules and boundaries, but more important, you should be the most interesting, exciting thing in your dogs world. Dont start with a retractable leash Question: I like the idea of a retractable leash, but my dog is all over the place when I use it. Am I using the right type of leash? Answer: Retractable leashes are pretty popular nowadays, but there are some caveats to using one, and lm denitely not in favor of a retractable leash for a pups rst foray into leash training. Once your dog knows how to heel (walk at your side), will stop, start and turns with you in a coordinated fashion, then perhaps you can go to a retractable leash. But you still would have to know how to use one, and theres a denite learning curve. Retractables are a great way to get line burn on your hands from grabbing it in a panic or for getting wrong-sided around a bush or a pole. And theyre easy to drop. One method to get a pup accustomed to a leash is to let her drag a short one around for a while. at wont work with a retractable. Aer your pup has dragged a short leash around for a bit, switch to a standard 6-foot nylon leash for walking. ese are the ticket for learning. On the business end of a standard leash, l prefer the sliding button type clasp, which is a spring-loaded, thumb-operated button that slides a moveable post back and forth to open and close the clasp. Because puppies want to put their mouth on everything, the same will hold true for his leash. e solution is simple. Just snatch it out of her mouth, saying No! Aer a few times, shell get the idea. When we rst teach her to walk on the leash, we really dont want to create what I call a bad leash experience, because ultimately she should love the leash. She just needs to learn to do it in an orderly way. To keep from traumatizing your puppy on her new leash, keep things casual. In other words, theres no need to haul her around and be jerking on her. You dont want her to think I hate my leash. e only rules at rst are: 1) We have to keep moving, and 2), you cant get ahead of me. If she wants to zigzag back and forth initially, thats ne; just keep the back and forth movement behind you. So before she gets ahead of you, draw the leash behind you to bring her back to your side. For now, shes learning the rst concepts of traveling with the pack. Once she keeps up well, has made friends with not trying to get ahead of you, and only stops to sni when you give her permission, then you can insist she heel on one side. Baby steps, right? I used to think that the important thing about the walk was for the dog to sni and gather her pee mail. Today l have a dierent understanding of what the walk is for. Its primarily for exercise, to

Just keep order in the pack Question: One of my friends told me its not a good idea to let your dog sleep in bed with you, but I just like to sleep with my dog. Whats the answer here? Answer: People tell me all the time almost the exact same thing you just said. at they know its not a good idea to sleep with their dog, etc. Usually when I hear this, what follows is but I sleep with my dog! Im not sure how the sleeping with your dog myth got started. And thats not to say that its always a good idea, because in an unbalanced pack, its not. For many of us pro-sleeping with your dog people, we know how wonderful it is to go to sleep with a furry, warm, loving, connected family member, and to wake up to that face. Do I think this practice lowers stress and possibly adds some years to your life? Yes I do. Im also aware of a faction of dog owners adamantly against sleeping with Max. Undoubtedly, Ill be hearing from those folks. I always do. eyll cite transmission of disease and all the rest of it, as their supporting premise. In theory, yeah, you can catch a bug from your dog. In 30 years working with dogs have I ever seen a case of that? Nope. But I know there is such a thing. Additionally, some people just dont dig having a dog in their bed, and I get that. To each his own. For me, the more salient issue is behavioral. To begin with, its not a good idea to let your little puppy sleep with you. If you want your pup to one day sleep with you, thats ne. But wolves are den animals, your puppy is just a few chromosomes away from literally being a wolf, and he should learn to be in his crate. Crate training is a marvelous and invaluable aspect of your dogs life. Once your dog is totally potty trained and can be trusted in the house when youre gone, then you can start thinking about letting him crash with you. Another very important point has to do with the nature of your relationship with Max. Being able to walk on a slack, casual leash at your side and have an understanding of a few basic obedience cues usually means your dog sees you as his leader, and shows you a modicum of respect. Part of being your dogs leader, means you have the right to personal space. is means if Im done petting my dog, I can tell her to go on and she basically has to leave me alone. I also tell my dog to move when shes under foot, as no higher-ranking dog would walk around a subordinate. Hed be like make way, comin through. If your dog respects you as his leader thus understanding you get to claim whatever space you want, whenever you want theres no reason he cant sleep in the bed with you if thats your desire. On the other hand, if he doesnt respect you, he will see his area (in the bed and elsewhere) as his sovereign territory, and may not want you in it. And that is exactly how some dog owners get bitten in their own bed. Again, this is a personal preference but in my opinion, as long as your pack is squared away, its ne to 24 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition keep Fluys mind balanced, and to reinforce my leadership. Now, if shes leading me and keeps her nose glued to the ground, stopping every few feet to sni some particularly interesting urine, this is a counterproductive exercise. Were not out here to develop her tracking skills. When we stop to sni and so on, its when l, the pack leader, initiate the stop. en shes allowed to lead me around a bit. en its back to heeling. e reason I prefer a 6-foot leash is because when I release Fluy to sni and all, l dont want to have to be right on top of her. A 6-footer makes this detail easier on me. Timing and nesse are keys to using a correction collarQuestion: Im having a hard time teaching my 4-month-old puppy to walk on the leash. I know you do not recommend prong collars or shock collars, so whats the best way to proceed? Answer: Almost always, the best collar to use for leash training is a lightweight slip collar. I also like to use a standard 6-foot leash. e chain version of a correction or slip collar is commonly called a choke chain, but if youre choking your dog with it, youre not using it correctly. Additionally, the bottom of your dogs neck is the very strongest part, but the very top of his neck is very tender. Even if hes a Great Dane. is is why you see leads adjusted up very high in dog shows. If the collar you use is made out of a lightweight material, its much easier to maintain a high position on his neck as this is the big magic trick of using a correction collar: Positioning. e proper protocol for your dog walking at your side or at the heel position is for his shoulders to not exceed an invisible line that extends sideways from your le shin. is puts Maxs head just in front of your leg. e idea is, Max doesnt exceed that line with his shoulders and basically keeps his nose o the ground, too.

Guidelines for choosing a pooch at a shelter Question: I would like to adopt a shelter dog but l need some pointers on what to look for, and how to proceed. What are some good guidelines? Answer: Getting a dog from a shelter is a good way to get a fantastic pet. Many people would never even consider adopting a dog for any number of reasons, but some of the most wonderful dogs I have ever been around came from a shelter. All these dogs need, for the most part, is quite simply a stable pack to t into. at said, its important to remember that one of the biggest reasons dogs end up at a shelter to begin with is because they were most likely misunderstood in some way shape or form. at lack of understanding can literally create a dog with so called issues, and then through no fault of their own, they land in adoption because they werent a good dog. Dogs wind up there for a variety of reasons though, and there can be any number of extenuating circumstances leading to their current position. And some dogs have zero issues whatsoever, but if you commit to a shelter dog, remember, one of the very worst things that could happen to him, is that he ends up back in an adoption situation. No matter what, honor your commitment. is is a sentient being and a life were talking about, and dogs who are repeatedly returned to a shelter routinely develop neuroses.Do not rush the adoption process. In other words dont get new dog fever. Visit several shelters and dont feel like you have to get a dog on the rst day. is should not be a hurried emotional decision, but a calculated, rational one. Do some homework on basic breed characteristics so youll know better what type of dog you might be interested in and what to expect at the shelter. Most dogs there are a mix of some sort, (which in my book is actually a good thing), but you can get a pretty good idea of what a particular dogs combination is just by looking at him. Dont bother with a DNA test, as they appear to be a waste of money.Youll want to match a dogs general energy level to your own, because to be an eective pack leader, your energy must at least meet the energy of your dog. So if youre 80, a Doberman mix for example, will probably not be a good t. e shelter environment is stressful for dogs, so stay calm and centered. Dont feel sorry for any of them. at vibe isnt helpful and can actually cloud a rational decision. When you greet a dog at a shelter, avoid prolonged eye contact at rst, turn sideways and squat down. Dont say anything, and oer the back of your hand outside the enclosure for him to catch a whi. If you see a dog you think might be a match, nd out if you can take him on a leash for a few minutes to further assess his energy and dominance levels.When you ultimately select a dog, please refrain (and instruct your kids to refrain) from a lot of hugs and kisses at rst. Until we have some trust in the relationship, hugging a dog invades his space and sends a message he may misinterpret as dominance. Even if the dog you select doesnt seem to mind, give him a chance to get to know you and sort out his place in the pack rst.If at all possible give him a good walk in your neighborhood before you take him into your house. is will help him burn o some energy and will start you on the road of establishing yourself as his leader. And it will make sense to him subconsciously on a primal level, because dogs are somewhat migratory, so having a walk (and a sni) in this new territory will be a natural rst step in acquainting him with his new home.

His 30-gallon sh tank is equipped with a pump on a timer. Every three to four hours, water is pumped up into trays lled with plants. e water slowly drains through an overow back into the sh tank below. Its a system in the hydroponic community called ebb and ow. e plants live o what the sh provide; no other nutrients are added. Judging from Brinzers deep-green plants and budding owers, they are getting everything they need. As Brinzer slips a marigold plant out of its brown clay pot, he reveals thick white roots ready for the garden. Its a symbiotic relationship. e sh provide nutrients from their waste products, and the plants lter the water before its returned to the tank. Basically, bacteria break down the toxic ammonia in sh waste, turning it into nitrogen, one of the nutrients for growing plants. e water is a little green, but the sh seem as happy as the plants they are helping to grow. rough trial and error, Brinzer found what he needed to best support the plants. In his research, he found that the Aztecs used sh to feed their plants. Its in its infancy again, he says, but its coming around. Brinzer spent only $30 for the trays and pump and about 49 cents each for the ve or six goldsh. e sh tank came from a friend and he already had the lighting. ere are tomatoes, marigolds, herbs, peppers, cucumbers and cuttings of jasmine and geraniums thriving in the aquaponics system. e only thing besides the cuttings that werent started from seed was a stevia plant bought from Janoskis Farm and Greenhouse in Clinton. Bathed in articial white light while sitting in front of his prized plants, Brinzer reects on what it is that he gets out of gardening this way: e joy of watching it grow, learning something new.Recycled aquarium water benets goldsh and seedlings 26 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition business!

If hes a working or herding breed, its safe to say hell need at least two thirty-minute walks a day. Maybe more. Little dog srequire less exercise in most cases, but you still have to get out there and walk. If you do currently walk your dog, just bump up the time a little bit. Naturally, heat precautions are important now, so walking early or late is best, but start adding some time to your walk, and keep your pace brisk instead of leisurely.

Weve tried everything to no avail. How can we x this annoying problem? Answer: When a dog jumps on you, hes excited. Its basically just a rude hello. But another dog who considers himself of higher rank would quickly ward o being jumped on, and since we always want to communicate the proper message about whos who in the pack, this is the main reason, as a leader, your rule here must be: You cant put your paws on me. is applies even if your dog is a little guy. Its the principle of the thing (and he gets it). In the absence of appropriate boundaries, your dog gets the wrong message about your respective positions in the pack. Max will learn not to jump on others by rst learning not to jump on you, and when it comes to thwarting a jumper, timing is everything. You must anticipate his jump. For a big, super unruly dog, you may have to quickly bring your knee up into his chest as he tries to jump on you. is has to happen really fast, however, and he should have no idea what happened. You must be more persistent than the dog and essentially outlast him. Its a battle of wills, but its just business. Once he gives up on the jumping idea (and he will), praise him. Teach him that he wont get petted unless all fours are on the ground, and be consistent with petting him only during those intervals. To keep him from jumping on people, use a leash and good timing. Let him sni the person on a slack leash, and praise him for that. But as soon as you see those paws come o the ground, correct with a tug and a no! en go slack again. Give him the option to choose, as opposed to just holding

Plenty of alternative pet options exist. FerretsFerrets are fun. ese members of the weasel family can be trained to do tricks like a dog but use a litter box like a cat. Because of their temperament, ferrets make better pets for older children who can properly handle and care for these little creatures that sleep on average 16 to 20 hours a day, according to Marshall Ferrets. Ferrets live about 10 years and make their home base in a cage. Extremely curious, ferrets love to explore and will chew, dig and tunnel, so owners need to keep special watch on any escape routes. For exotic and specialty animals, ferrets rank second-most popular aer sh.Hamsters and gerbilsHamsters and gerbils are cute, except to the people who think they look too much like mice or rats to keep as pets. ey may look similar, eat the same foods and come from the rodent family, but their social needs are dierent, according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

How to stop a countertop snacker Question: I have a male Lab who will be 2 in a couple of months, and is still somewhat unruly. For one thing, Rocko steals food o the countertops. What can I do about this, and will this ever end? Answer: Your dog sounds like a pretty typical Labrador Retriever. Even though Labs are one of the most beloved breeds in America, anyone familiar with these wonderful dogs, knows it can take them quite some time to mature. Some can take up to three years to be mature and more focused. So yes, hell grow out of this phase, but in the meantime, youll have to weather the storm, providing balanced leadership in the form of consistent rules and boundaries. Anything around your food is a no-no for your dog, and I dont mean your dog cant sometimes eat a little people food. But he should only eat it out of his own dish. We should never set a precedent of allowing our dog to snack from us when were prepping or eating food. Your wolf understands on a primal level: When the leaders eat, the subordinates stay away from the food. Not following this protocol gives him the wrong idea about where he falls in the pack hierarchy. Because counter surng is related to food, you have to win this battle. If you can keep Rocko away from the kitchen area completely, thats one way to deter him, but it would be OK to allow him in the kitchen if you feel like it, as long as you provide vigilant supervision. eoretically, aer a while, he simply learns the rule because you get good at timely enforcement of a counter boundary. If you cant cordon o your kitchen, youll have to teach him one way or another counter surng wont be fun, either because he gets a loud NO! and an unceremonious push, or something else, and these corrections must happen within 3 seconds. You can try stretching a length of tinfoil along each of your counters, and when he puts his paws up there because it has a funny texture and makes an odd sound, it may act as a deterrent. You can also put mouse traps underneath the tinfoil at 10 inch

Aer an unexpected turn of events in recent years, Barker wound up with a bevy of exotic pets, and her collection of more than 30 creatures is constantly growing. e python is a wonderful snake, but hes in the water right now, Barker said one recent aernoon with a gesture toward one of her most prized possessions. But I could get out the corn snake. Shes a pretty snake, Barker said with a smile, casually reaching into the glass container housing the writhing, approximately 5-foot reptile. Youre beautiful, arent you? Barker said she has raised the snake, which kills its small prey by constriction and lives for about 20 years, ever since it was a tiny baby a few years ago. e snake, found naturally in the southeastern and central United States, is generally docile and reluctant to bite, which explains why it is a fairly common pet. is is not as true for the python, an animal which, although not vicious, is certainly larger and more intimidating than the corn snake. He has a bad eye, Barker, a Winchester kindergarten teacher who taught for 30 years, said as she handled the python that mistakenly bit her a few months back as she was giving it a snack. I heard her yell for help, and came running in, said Dave McGavern, one of Barkers three caretakers. It had bitten her thumb and then wrapped around her hand. McGavern quickly lled a bucket with cold water for Barkers hand. ats what you do when a snake grabs you, Barker said, adding that the python immediately withdrew. e snake, which had tried to bite the dead mouse Barker was dangling from her hand, but instead found her thumb, did not cause much damage. It wasnt too bad, said Barker, who is also unfazed by bites from her tarantula. Its no worse than a horsey.Dogs not enough With a name like Barker, one would assume correctly the 59-year resident would have a dog. Ginger is my favorite, Barker said of her 12-year-old-mutt, a wellmannered, golden-furred pooch, which did a lot of hand-licking but no barking over a two-hour stretch. I had pets as a child, and Ive always been interested in animals, Barker said. For quite a few years, I had rabbits run loose in my classroom [in Winchester]. ough teachers couldnt get away with that now, Barker said the children loved the rabbits, which werent quite the nuisance one might expect. I always had papers ready for whenever they went to the bathroom, and they might chew a little hole in a students shirt once in awhile, but the kids loved them, Barker smiled, recalling the words of former students she met in later years.

Dog in bed? Just keep order in the pack Question: One of my friends told me its not a good idea to let your dog sleep in bed with you, but I just like to sleep with my dog. Whats the answer here? Answer: People tell me all the time almost the exact same thing you just said. at they know its not a good idea to sleep with their dog, etc. Usually when I hear this, what follows is but I sleep with my dog! Im not sure how the sleeping with your dog myth got started. And thats not to say that its always a good idea, because in an unbalanced pack, its not. For many of us pro-sleeping with your dog people, we know how wonderful it is to go to sleep with a furry, warm, loving, connected family member, and to wake up to that face. Do I think this practice lowers stress and possibly adds some years to your life? Yes I do. Im also aware of a faction of dog owners adamantly against sleeping with Max. Undoubtedly, Ill be hearing from those folks. I always do. eyll cite transmission of disease and all the rest of it, as their supporting premise. In theory, yeah, you can catch a bug from your dog. In 30 years working with dogs have I ever seen a case of that? Nope. But I know there is such a thing. Additionally, some people just dont dig having a dog in their bed, and I get that. To each his own. For me, the more salient issue is behavioral. To begin with, its not a good idea to let your little puppy sleep with you. If you want your pup to one day sleep with you, thats ne. But wolves are den animals, your puppy is just a few chromosomes away from literally being a wolf, and he should learn to be in his crate. Crate training is a marvelous and invaluable aspect of your dogs life. Once your dog is totally potty trained and can be trusted in the house when youre gone, then you can start thinking about letting him crash with you. Another very important point has to do with the nature of your relationship with Max. Being able to walk on a slack, casual leash at your side and have an understanding of a few basic obedience cues usually means your dog sees you as his leader, and shows you a modicum of respect. Part of being your dogs leader, means you have the right to personal space. is means if Im done petting my dog, I can tell her to go on and she basically has to leave me alone. I also tell my dog to move when shes under foot, as no higher-ranking dog would walk around a subordinate. Hed be like make way, comin through. If your dog respects you as his leader thus understanding you get to claim whatever space you want, whenever you want theres no reason he cant sleep in the bed with you if thats your desire. On the other hand, if he doesnt respect you, he will see his area (in the bed and elsewhere) as his sovereign territory, and may not want you in it. And that is exactly how some dog owners get bitten in their own bed. Again, this is a personal preference but in my opinion, as long as your pack is squared away, its ne to

I learned a lot about animals, Barker said, and she soon began handling them in front of audiences. To me, it was just great to be able to stand in front of people with an animal in my hands and talk about it. Barker received her rst odd animal from a former Harvard biologist with whom she worked. He was telling me about cockroaches in his oce, where he had quite a few, she said. As I was leaving, he casually asked, Do you want some? at was the start. As she began to raise cockroaches, Barker eventually acquired a Madagascar hissing cockroach, one of the worlds largest cockroaches. e creatures can live for up to ve years. I only like nice cockroaches you can keep in a container, she said. Content with raising her roaches, Barker may never have acquired the rest of her exotic pets were it not for a conversation her daughter had at church. ere was a man talking about how he dealt with animals for a living, and he began to describe a cockroach that made a lot of noise, Barker remembered. My daughter said, Oh, a Madagascar hissing cockroach. My mother raises them, and he couldnt believe it, she said with a smile. It took the wind right out of his sails. Aer the two were introduced, the man, Matt Schoeer, decided to anchor his business by employing the help of the knowledgeable Barker. We would show animals all over the Greater Boston area, sometimes two to three times a week, said Barker, who particularly enjoyed the fact that she was able to get back into classrooms and spread her knowledge to children. It was just so fun. Ive never enjoyed life as much as I did when I was doing that,Permanent interim caretakerBarker helped Schoeer for ve years, until an illness rendered him unable to continue showing about ve years ago. I told him Id take care of the animals while he was ill. So I brought them over, and I had boa constrictors in here, the pythons, lizards, tarantulas everything. Unfortunately, Schoeer never recovered from his illness, and died in 2005. So here I was with all the animals, Barker said. I couldnt even li the boa constrictors, they were so big. Aer nding homes for the constrictors, a large tortoise and some of the other less-manageable creatures, Barker decided to keep the rest. However, recognizing that she wasnt getting any younger, Barker realized she needed some help.A few brave menBarker turned to Home Instead Senior Care, a company that helps seniors in the area stay at home as long as possible by providing personal care, meal preparation, laundry service, housekeeping, shopping escorts, respite care and medication reminders.

And for many of us, theres no other way. Guidelines for choosing a pooch at a shelter Question: I would like to adopt a shelter dog but l need some pointers on what to look for, and how to proceed. What are some good guidelines? Answer: Getting a dog from a shelter is a good way to get a fantastic pet. Many people would never even consider adopting a dog for any number of reasons, but some of the most wonderful dogs I have ever been around came from a shelter. All these dogs need, for the most part, is quite simply a stable pack to t into. at said, its important to remember that one of the biggest reasons dogs end up at a shelter to begin with is because they were most likely misunderstood in some way shape or form. at lack of understanding can literally create a dog with so called issues, and then through no fault of their own, they land in adoption because they werent a good dog. Dogs wind up there for a variety of reasons though, and there can be any number of extenuating circumstances leading to their current position. And some dogs have zero issues whatsoever, but if you commit to a shelter dog, remember, one of the very worst things that could happen to him, is that he ends up back in an adoption situation. No matter what, honor your commitment. is is a sentient being and a life were talking about, and dogs who are repeatedly returned to a shelter routinely develop neuroses.Do not rush the adoption process. In other words dont get new dog fever. Visit several shelters and dont feel like you have to get a dog on the rst day. is should not be a hurried emotional decision, but a calculated, rational one. Do some homework on basic breed characteristics so youll know better what type of dog you might be interested in and what to expect at the shelter. Most dogs there are a mix of some sort, (which in my book is actually a good thing), but you can get a pretty good idea of what a particular dogs combination is just by looking at him. Dont bother with a DNA test, as they appear to be a waste of money.Youll want to match a dogs general energy level to your own, because to be an eective pack leader, your energy must at least meet the energy of your dog. So if youre 80, a Doberman mix for example, will probably not be a good t. e shelter environment is stressful for dogs, so stay calm and centered. Dont feel sorry for any of them. at vibe isnt helpful and can actually cloud a rational decision. When you greet a dog at a shelter, avoid prolonged eye contact at rst, turn sideways and squat down. Dont say anything, and oer the back of your hand outside the enclosure for him to catch a whi. If you see a dog you think might be a match, nd out if you can take him on a leash for a few minutes to further assess his energy and dominance levels.When you ultimately select a dog, please refrain (and instruct your kids to refrain) from a lot of hugs and kisses at rst. Until we have some trust in the relationship, hugging a dog invades his space and sends a message he may misinterpret as dominance. Even if the dog you select doesnt seem to mind, give him a chance to get to know you and sort out his place in the pack rst.If at all possible give him a good walk in your neighborhood before you take him into your house. is will help him burn o some energy and will start you on the road of establishing yourself as his leader. And it will make sense to him subconsciously on a primal level, because dogs are somewhat migratory, so having a walk (and a sni) in this new territory will be a natural rst step in acquainting him with his new home.

38 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition said McGavern, sitting alongside Barkers other caregiver, Bill Fecke At 78, McGavern, a former dean of students at the Massachusetts College of Art, realizes he isnt a likely caretaker candidate. It takes one to know one, he said jokingly, adding that although he enjoys the job, he never anticipated it would involve feeding mice to snakes. Ive got a dog and a cat, he said. So this is 10 times as interesting. Home Instead owner Jack Cross said although most of the caretakers in his company are women, he learned quickly that this assignment would require a dierent kind of employee. Bill and Dave are very special people, said Cross, with a sideward glance at the python. To learn about these animals, and take care of them like they do is quite impressive. ough Barker loves them all, each caretaker has animals they prefer more than others. Fecke prefers the corn snake, which lays about 30 gooey, leathery eggs once a year, but is not a big fan of the tarantula. McGavern prefers the elder statesman of the bunch, a 60-plusyear-old North American box turtle, simply named TJ. Hes like a person. He watches everything very carefully, and he looks up at you with this longing on his face like he wants to talk to you, McGavern said. TJ is one of Barkers only animals with a name. e snakes, tarantula and more exotic animals remain nameless, she said, because thats how she was used to conducting business at the zoo. Barkers seven children also love TJ, so much so that theyve already begun ghting over who will get custody over the beloved pet when it changes hands. Well all be gone, and hell still be here, said McGavern. One of TJs legendary traits is his propensity to shake o the typical slow and steady turtle stereotype. It takes him a little while to get going, but hes quite fast, Barker said, as Fecke lowered him onto the oor. Sure enough, TJ took a quick look around and then started moving, gaining speed with distance as he turned a cabinet corner. Hes quite active, smile Barker, who takes him sunbathing in the garden every spring.Dynamic dedicationIn addition to providing normal duties pursuant to round-theclock care, McGavern, Fecke and another caretaker are also charged with distinguished honors such as lizard-chasing and miceshopping. We buy dead mice about twice a month in bulk, about 24 at a time, said McGavern. Ive got a special section in my freezer for them, said Barker. You just have to be careful when you go in there for a midnight snack, Cross said with a laugh. Barker said although her friends think the fridge is a little bit gross, her husband, Edward, whom she married in 1943, doesnt mind. He wants me to do whatever makes me happy, Barker said of Edward, who recently has fallen ill. Barker said without the caretakers to watch over her pets and assist her husband, her way of life wouldnt be possible. I couldnt do this if I was in a retirement home, so to be able to have help here to feed and keep the animals is really a blessing, she said. I lucked out. Never one to slow down, the ex-teacher just purchased a few geckos last week, and said she will continue to add to her growing collection of animals because they, like her caretakers, provide her with companionship and purpose. She visited the zoo where she used to work, said Fecke, and the parrot instantly perked up. Its true, Barker said, a smile spreading across her face. Nobody else recognized me, but the macaw did.

Oops, did I say rats? Yes, I did! I found it utterly amazing when I talked to some people who are members of the Rat Fancy, that there are Himalayan, Abyssinian and, of all things, Siamese rats! And they are exhibited in shows very much like a cat show. ere are judges, standards and rosettes to be won. How were these breeds developed? In 1978, the National Fancy Rat Society imported Siamese rates, which were located in a laboratory in Orly, France. ree pairs of Siamese rats were imported and the rst litter from each pair went to the National Fancy Rat Society to defray the cost of the original imports. So in September 1978, the litters were delivered, which was the beginning of developing a breed standard for the Siamese Rat. ese rst Siamese looked more like Silver Fawn Hooded rats with very faint dark noses. But through hard work and good breeding practices, these rats were transformed into the beautiful Siamese that are being shown today! It was a long process though, because the program began in 1978, and it was not until March 31, 1984, that the rst Siamese rats were introduced at a show. e standard describes a rat that has body color to be medium beige gradually and evenly shaded over saddle and hindquarters towards the belly, being darkest at the base of the tail. Tail color to extend down the length of the tail. Belly to be light beige. Points to be rich dark Fancy rats make great pets?

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 39 By JoAnne Viviano, More Content Now T he key to a healthy pet is to see a veterinarian at least once a year and stay up to date on appropriate vaccinations, including those that protect against rabies for dogs and upper respiratory infections in cats. said Dr. Robert Knapp of Knapp Veterinary Hospital in Clintonville.But there are seven things you should keep on hand at home: Prescription heartworm preventionProtect your pet against this potentially fatal disease, which is caused by worms in the heart, lungs and certain blood vessels. Prescription ea and tick preventionIts also important for preventing diseases that can be fatal. Gauze bandages and adhesive tapeese can cover cuts or wounds until you can get to an veterinary emergency department. Milk of magnesiais can absorb poisons eaten by a pet. Always contact your veterinarian before using. Hydrogen peroxideis can induce vomiting if a pet eats something it shouldnt. Always contact your veterinarian before using Over-the-counter eyewashIts safe to use if your pet is squinting a lot or has dust in his or her eyes. WaterPets should have free access to water at all times, unless there is a medical reason to limit it.Exercise and other adviceRemember not to overdo it. Pets might need to get conditioned in the spring if theyve spent most of the winter sitting on the couch. Pets have to get acclimated, too. Sometimes we forget pets havent been as active, and we need to work our way up to that, Knapp said. Should you use antihistamines and other over-the counter medications? It depends, so you should ask your vet. Keep in mind that some medications that are safe for humans are not safe for animals. For example, acetaminophen, the drug in Tylenol, can be fatal to cats, Knapp said. And some avorings and sweeteners can also be toxic to pets. Just because its OK for us doesnt mean its OK for pets, Knapp said. However, being a good pet owner isnt so much a matter of what you have, but what you do, said Dr. Michelle Matusicky, an assistant professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Ohio State University. e best owners are those who not only provide for their general necessities, but do things for them and with them: they go for walks, they play fetch, they provide enrichment to their pets on a daily basis, she said. ose owners are in tune with their pets; they know what their pets need and recognize any changes or concerns quickly should they arise.Pet first-aid kit: 7 items every pet owner should keep at hand 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 31 sepia and to shade evenly into the body color. Eyes red or light ruby. A disqualication is the color white, whether a spot on the body, white feet or white on the tail. e darkness of the fur color is determined by the temperature of the rats environment. e colder it is, the darker the fur comes in. at is why those areas on the rat which are cooler (nose, ears, feet and tail) have darker fur than the body. Siamese rats are actually much darker in the winter months than they are in the summer. e Siamese gene is recessive. If two Siamese rats are bred together, they will produce all Siamese babies. If a Siamese rat is bred to a black rat, it will produce all black babies, but if two of these babies are bred together, the litter will have one-fourth Siamese. e black rat is the best outcross for the Siamese and it should be a good black, with no white anywhere, in order to avoid the white disqualication factor. Any babies that are born with white on the feet or tail should be sold as pets and not make its way to the show ring. Very much like the Siamese Cat, the Siamese Rat is born with an even creamy-brown color. ey do not begin to develop their points before their rst moult, which makes it dicult to decide which ones to keep for a breeding program or show ring. At about ve weeks, the ones that appear darkest and have the best foot color will probably have the best points and shading in the end. Seal-point Siamese Rats are ashy, so when you have a good one, it will usually do well on the show bench. Because of the greed of pet stores which led to a lot of inbreeding, there are a lot of mediocre ones around, but there are a few breeders who have been working really hard at improving the breed. Males are a better choice for a show animal because, like in many species, the female routinely has more bland coloring than the male. It is also necessary to prepare for the show. If the show is in the summer, make sure your rat is brought into an air conditioned area to help bring out the color in the points (please use common sense and refrain from using the refrigerator). Also bathe your rat about a week before the show so it will be clean and yet have enough time to regain its natural oils. For more information on these and other fancy rats, please log on to www.afrma.org. And, remember, if you want to own a Siamese rat and if you have any interest in showing one, please do not go to a pet store. ese rats will be mediocre in color at best, and could have health problems on top of bad color. Go to an experienced breeder. Just like cats, you get what you pay for!

ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 41 By More Content NowE very day, in shelters all across the country, senior animals are passed over by prospective pet owners. Why? Some people are looking for the energy of a new puppy or feel older dogs oer families too little time. But the truth is, providing a new home for an older animal may bring you a level of companionship you never imagined. Any shelter worker will tell you, puppies and kittens get adopted rst and older shelter pets have a higher likelihood of being euthanized, says Andrea Arden, a dog trainer whos been featured on Animal Planet and the Today Show. But if youre considering adoption, there are great reasons to choose a more mature pet. Older animals can be just as cute and lovable as their younger counterparts. In fact, they oen come with many wonderful qualities that take years to develop in younger animals. Here are a few benets to consider as youre looking for a forever friend: Saving a life Its no secret that senior pets are at a disadvantage in shelters. Not only do they have a lower likelihood of adoption, they are also more prone to depression and confusion as a result of their new environment. Consider how they got there; more oen than not, a senior animal ends up in a shelter due to owner surrender. It could be an older owners declining health, an unforeseen move or a sudden change in nancial situation. Still, these are wonderful, loving animals that simply had no place to go. By choosing to adopt a senior pet, youre providing a second chance at life and, with that, can come a lot of fulllment.Say so long to trainingLucky for you, the majority of senior animals have already learned the fundamentals everything from toilet training to various commands to leash walking. Not having to spend weeks and weeks on training can be a valuable perk of adopting a senior pet.Age is but a numberHowever, should you want to teach an older dog a new trick, youre in luck. Animals can be trained at any age; in fact, more mature animals may have a longer attention span, so you may actually nd it easier to teach your senior pet something new.What you see is what you getAdopting an older pet means its size and temperament are established, increasing your chance of nding the perfect companion for your household. Have a cat? No problem, many senior dogs have already lived in a home with felines.Lots of love, less destructionSenior pets are typically well past the search-and-destroy phase, minimizing the possibility of unwanted accidents and bad behavior.Something for everyone e mellow disposition of a senior animal makes them a great companion for people of all ages. eir lower energy level is oen a perfect t for the elderly, while their calm presence can be great for families with children.Wonderful years aheadArden urges pet parents not to let the shorter lifespan of an older pet keep you from adopting one. Depending on the breed, a dog of 7 or 8 years may have at least as many good years le ahead, and most breeds of domestic cats can easily live to be 15 or older. Its also important to note that while veterinary attention and medication are needed for animals of all ages, old age doesnt necessarily mean higher costs. You wouldnt avoid making a human friendship just because the new person in your life is mature, Arden says. When you adopt an older animal, you can still have plenty of time to enjoy their companionship. Because theyre older, youll be inspired to make every moment with them as loving and rewarding as possible.Preparing for senior petsGood nutrition and regular veterinary checkups are important for all pets, especially seniors. Look for a specialized food to ensure your pet is receiving the vitamins and minerals needed to stay healthy.Lots of life and love left in senior pets ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition 33 ey get bigIt may sound obvious, but many would-be adopters forget that the once small, adorable baby animal they adopted will one day grow into a full-edged adult. A potbellied pig, for example, may start out nice and little, but it will hardly be considered a lap animal when it reaches a whopping 100-250 pounds.ey like having friendse majority of farm animals thrive in a herd or ock, and having companions is extremely benecial to their long-term health and happiness. Before you get started, make sure you have the time and resources to care for multiple animals. Adjusting your lifestyleIts important to note that your new animal isnt going to adjust to your lifestyle. With farm animals, Lauricella says, its the other way around. Livestock animals generally rise with the sun, and when they do, you will too. And remember, theres no snooze button on a hungry goat.A space to t their needsLivestock animals need space to roam, but dont underestimate the importance of also keeping them properly contained. While the size and strength of a fence will vary depending on the animals you plan to adopt (you can research containment options for specic animals), quality fencing should always be a high priority. e last thing you want is for your animals to outsmart their fence and roam into a nearby farm, eld or neighborhood.Caring for them when theyre illAll animals are susceptible to illness, but livestock animals have a higher risk of contracting infections than their indoor counterparts. Veterinarians can help determine the right medical plan for your animal, but its vital for new livestock owners to identify a livestock veterinarian before their animal gets sick.Be sure its legalLivestock laws dier from place to place, so if you have plans to bring home a new pig or goat, its a good idea to check your city ordinances and homeowners association to be sure your new pet is allowed by local rules.Know where to go for suppliesFrom feeders, food and treats to containment and healthcare, adopting livestock means shopping for a whole new set of supplies, and its important to know where to go. Find a local rural lifestyle retailer, which oers a comprehensive selection of products for equine, livestock, pets and small animals, including items necessary for their health, care, growth and containment.

Ive always been a tinkerer, the semi-retired 67-year-old gardener says with a laugh. His introduction to gardening came at 14 when his mother handed him a shovel to turn over the familys large garden. Hes gardened at this home for well over 30 years, starting conventionally and eventually turning to raised beds and organic techniques. Every year seems to get better and better, he says proudly. He wanted to try hydroponics and set up two types of growing systems in the greenhouse. ree months ago, on a visit to HGTSupply, a hydroponic-equipment store in the Pittsburgh suburb of Cranberry, he discovered aquaponics, in which sh water is used to feed the plants. e system there is more complex than his, but the principles are the same. His 30-gallon sh tank is equipped with a pump on a timer. Every three to four hours, water is pumped up into trays lled with plants. e water slowly drains through an overow back into the sh tank below. Its a system in the hydroponic community called ebb and ow. e plants live o what the sh provide; no other nutrients are added. Judging from Brinzers deep-green plants and budding owers, they are getting everything they need. As Brinzer slips a marigold plant out of its brown clay pot, he reveals thick white roots ready for the garden. Its a symbiotic relationship. e sh provide nutrients from their waste products, and the plants lter the water before its returned to the tank. Basically, bacteria break down the toxic ammonia in sh waste, turning it into nitrogen, one of the nutrients for growing plants. e water is a little green, but the sh seem as happy as the plants they are helping to grow. rough trial and error, Brinzer found what he needed to best support the plants. In his research, he found that the Aztecs used sh to feed their plants. Its in its infancy again, he says, but its coming around. Brinzer spent only $30 for the trays and pump and about 49 cents each for the ve or six goldsh. e sh tank came from a friend and he already had the lighting. ere are tomatoes, marigolds, herbs, peppers, cucumbers and cuttings of jasmine and geraniums thriving in the aquaponics system. e only thing besides the cuttings that werent started from seed was a stevia plant bought from Janoskis Farm and Greenhouse in Clinton.

Additionally, keep at least an extra weeks supply of food and medications in your travel kit, in case your belongings get delayed in transit. Get your pet a checkup before moving day so youll be aware of any changes in health that could aect his or her ability to travel easily. Make a list of emergency veterinarians in towns along your travel route and at your destination, in case an emergency occurs.While youre packing and loadingDogs and cats may both be tempted to chew on boxes and packing material, and they could choke on materials or get sick if they swallow something they shouldnt. While youre lling boxes, try to keep pets away from your packing area. If youre packing in stages over several days, be sure to clean up and store any packing material from day to day so pets dont have access to it. To minimize the risk of a pet getting hurt, underfoot or lost while youre packing, conne him to a small room such as a bathroom or closet while your furniture and boxes are being packed on the truck. Leave him with water and some food. Post a note on the door of the room alerting movers that a pet is conned there so they dont open the door.On the roadBefore moving day, take your pet for short rides especially if you have a pet thats not used to being in the car. You may discover that your cat suers from motion sickness, or that your dog prefers the security of riding in a crate rather than just a travel harness. Knowing how your pet reacts to travel can help you and your vet plan a course of action for minimizing travel stress, such as sedation or more frequent breaks in the trip. e day of your move, transport your pet in your own car or in the cab of the rented moving truck youll be driving. Never put a pet in the back of any moving truck where they could get hurt, become sick or be exposed to uncomfortable temperatures. Keep plenty of food and water available, and consider starting your pets ride with an empty stomach so he or she will be less likely to experience an upset tummy on the drive. Take rest stops every two hours and keep your pet leashed or in a crate when you stop. Never leave your pet unattended in your vehicle, especially in summer when temperatures inside a car or truck can get dangerously hot very quickly. When you arrive at your new home, put your pet in a small room while you unload the truck. Once everything is in place, you can let him out to explore. Your new home will look and feel dierent to your dog or cat, but the familiar scent of your belongings will help him adjust quickly.

But I could get out the corn snake. Shes a pretty snake, Barker said with a smile, casually reaching into the glass container housing the writhing, approximately 5-foot reptile. Youre beautiful, arent you? Barker said she has raised the snake, which kills its small prey by constriction and lives for about 20 years, ever since it was a tiny baby a few years ago. e snake, found naturally in the southeastern and central United States, is generally docile and reluctant to bite, which explains why it is a fairly common pet. is is not as true for the python, an animal which, although not vicious, is certainly larger and more intimidating than the corn snake. He has a bad eye, Barker, a Winchester kindergarten teacher who taught for 30 years, said as she handled the python that mistakenly bit her a few months back as she was giving it a snack. I heard her yell for help, and came running in, said Dave McGavern, one of Barkers three caretakers. It had bitten her thumb and then wrapped around her hand. McGavern quickly lled a bucket with cold water for Barkers hand. ats what you do when a snake grabs you, Barker said, adding that the python immediately withdrew. e snake, which had tried to bite the dead mouse Barker was dangling from her hand, but instead found her thumb, did not cause much damage. It wasnt too bad, said Barker, who is also unfazed by bites from her tarantula.

I learned a lot about animals, Barker said, and she soon began handling them in front of audiences. To me, it was just great to be able to stand in front of people with an animal in my hands and talk about it. Barker received her rst odd animal from a former Harvard biologist with whom she worked. He was telling me about cockroaches in his oce, where he had quite a few, she said. As I was leaving, he casually asked, Do you want some? at was the start. As she began to raise cockroaches, Barker eventually acquired a Madagascar hissing cockroach, one of the worlds largest cockroaches. e creatures can live for up to ve years. I only like nice cockroaches you can keep in a container, she said. Content with raising her roaches, Barker may never have acquired the rest of her exotic pets were it not for a conversation her daughter had at church. ere was a man talking about how he dealt with animals for a living, and he began to describe a cockroach that made a lot of noise, Barker remembered. My daughter said, Oh, a Madagascar hissing cockroach. My mother raises them, and he couldnt believe it, she said with a smile. It took the wind right out of his sails. Aer the two were introduced, the man, Matt Schoeer, decided to anchor his business by employing the help of the knowledgeable Barker. We would show animals all over the Greater Boston area, sometimes two to three times a week, said Barker, who particularly enjoyed the fact that she was able to get back into classrooms and spread her knowledge to children. It was just so fun. Ive never enjoyed life as much as I did when I was doing that,Permanent interim caretakerBarker helped Schoeer for ve years, until an illness rendered him unable to continue showing about ve years ago. I told him Id take care of the animals while he was ill. So I brought them over, and I had boa constrictors in here, the pythons, lizards, tarantulas everything. Unfortunately, Schoeer never recovered from his illness, and died in 2005. So here I was with all the animals, Barker said. I couldnt even li the boa constrictors, they were so big. Aer nding homes for the constrictors, a large tortoise and some of the other less-manageable creatures, Barker decided to keep the rest. However, recognizing that she wasnt getting any younger, Barker realized she needed some help.A few brave menBarker turned to Home Instead Senior Care, a company that helps seniors in the area stay at home as long as possible by providing personal care, meal preparation, laundry service, housekeeping, shopping escorts, respite care and medication reminders.

German ShepherdsA relatively new breed (they date back to 1899), German Shepherds are exceptional animals: Courageous, obedient, incredibly loyal, and eager to learn. German Shepherds are very intelligent too, and excel at most anything theyre trained to do. eyre usually used as service dogs and police dogs to protect ocers and locate drugs or human remains. German Shepherds love their humans so much that they will suer from separation anxiety, and can become destructive when bored alone at home .3. Pembroke Welsh CorgisCorgis have a cult-like following mainly due to their playful and sweet personalities. According to Welsh mythology, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was even the transportation mode of choice for fairies. 38 ALL ABOUT PETS | GateHouse Media Premium Edition said McGavern, sitting alongside Barkers other caregiver, Bill Fecke At 78, McGavern, a former dean of students at the Massachusetts College of Art, realizes he isnt a likely caretaker candidate. It takes one to know one, he said jokingly, adding that although he enjoys the job, he never anticipated it would involve feeding mice to snakes. Ive got a dog and a cat, he said. So this is 10 times as interesting. Home Instead owner Jack Cross said although most of the caretakers in his company are women, he learned quickly that this assignment would require a dierent kind of employee. Bill and Dave are very special people, said Cross, with a sideward glance at the python. To learn about these animals, and take care of them like they do is quite impressive. ough Barker loves them all, each caretaker has animals they prefer more than others. Fecke prefers the corn snake, which lays about 30 gooey, leathery eggs once a year, but is not a big fan of the tarantula. McGavern prefers the elder statesman of the bunch, a 60-plusyear-old North American box turtle, simply named TJ. Hes like a person. He watches everything very carefully, and he looks up at you with this longing on his face like he wants to talk to you, McGavern said. TJ is one of Barkers only animals with a name. e snakes, tarantula and more exotic animals remain nameless, she said, because thats how she was used to conducting business at the zoo. Barkers seven children also love TJ, so much so that theyve already begun ghting over who will get custody over the beloved pet when it changes hands. Well all be gone, and hell still be here, said McGavern. One of TJs legendary traits is his propensity to shake o the typical slow and steady turtle stereotype. It takes him a little while to get going, but hes quite fast, Barker said, as Fecke lowered him onto the oor. Sure enough, TJ took a quick look around and then started moving, gaining speed with distance as he turned a cabinet corner. Hes quite active, smile Barker, who takes him sunbathing in the garden every spring.Dynamic dedicationIn addition to providing normal duties pursuant to round-theclock care, McGavern, Fecke and another caretaker are also charged with distinguished honors such as lizard-chasing and miceshopping. We buy dead mice about twice a month in bulk, about 24 at a time, said McGavern. Ive got a special section in my freezer for them, said Barker. You just have to be careful when you go in there for a midnight snack, Cross said with a laugh. Barker said although her friends think the fridge is a little bit gross, her husband, Edward, whom she married in 1943, doesnt mind. He wants me to do whatever makes me happy, Barker said of Edward, who recently has fallen ill. Barker said without the caretakers to watch over her pets and assist her husband, her way of life wouldnt be possible. I couldnt do this if I was in a retirement home, so to be able to have help here to feed and keep the animals is really a blessing, she said. I lucked out. Never one to slow down, the ex-teacher just purchased a few geckos last week, and said she will continue to add to her growing collection of animals because they, like her caretakers, provide her with companionship and purpose. She visited the zoo where she used to work, said Fecke, and the parrot instantly perked up. Its true, Barker said, a smile spreading across her face. Nobody else recognized me, but the macaw did.

Prescription ea and tick preventionIts also important for preventing diseases that can be fatal. Gauze bandages and adhesive tapeese can cover cuts or wounds until you can get to an veterinary emergency department. Milk of magnesiais can absorb poisons eaten by a pet. Always contact your veterinarian before using. Hydrogen peroxideis can induce vomiting if a pet eats something it shouldnt. Always contact your veterinarian before using Over-the-counter eyewashIts safe to use if your pet is squinting a lot or has dust in his or her eyes. WaterPets should have free access to water at all times, unless there is a medical reason to limit it.Exercise and other adviceRemember not to overdo it. Pets might need to get conditioned in the spring if theyve spent most of the winter sitting on the couch. Pets have to get acclimated, too. Sometimes we forget pets havent been as active, and we need to work our way up to that, Knapp said. Should you use antihistamines and other over-the counter medications? It depends, so you should ask your vet. Keep in mind that some medications that are safe for humans are not safe for animals. For example, acetaminophen, the drug in Tylenol, can be fatal to cats, Knapp said. And some avorings and sweeteners can also be toxic to pets. Just because its OK for us doesnt mean its OK for pets, Knapp said. However, being a good pet owner isnt so much a matter of what you have, but what you do, said Dr. Michelle Matusicky, an assistant professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Ohio State University. e best owners are those who not only provide for their general necessities, but do things for them and with them: they go for walks, they play fetch, they provide enrichment to their pets on a daily basis, she said. ose owners are in tune with their pets; they know what their pets need and recognize any changes or concerns quickly should they arise.Pet first-aid kit: 7 items every pet owner should keep at hand 5 6 7 1 2 3 4
