The bottlenose dolphin's sophisticated bio sonar enabled the Navy to detect and clear underwater bombs during the Iraq War, and homing pigeons played a vital role as secret messen-gers during both world wars, with some awarded medals for bravery.But there is one animal the military has had significantly less success in conscripting, and that is the bat.In the wake of the Pearl Harbor bombing in 1941, hun-dreds of Mexican free-tailed bats were recruited as part of a harebrained scheme to blow up Japanese cities by arming the flying insectivores with bombs and releasing them from planes. The idea was that the bats would roost in buildings and explode, killing the enemy as they slept.

But her grandfather told her sternly: ÂWe donÂt leave anybody behind.ÂŽ And so she ran the race with that cousin, and lost, but learned a memorable lesson about taking care of those less powerful. Burke took that lesson into her career as an activist and organizer, especially her work with survivors of sexual vio-lence Â„ work that led her to coin the phrase ÂMe Too,ÂŽ more than a decade before it exploded as a global hashtag and a slogan for a sweeping social movement.Now, with more visibility than she ever dreamed possible, Burke finds herself in another race Â„ to get the next phase of her own #MeToo work up and running before the spotlight dims. And an important part of that, she says, is to put the focus back where it started Â„ before Harvey Weinstein and the movie stars and red carpets Â„ on survivors, especially women and girls of color, who she says have always been disproportionately impacted by sexual violence.ÂThe #MeToo movement is a survivorÂs movement,ÂŽ Burke says. ÂAnd itÂs for everybody. I just want to make that point extra clear.ÂŽ In other words, the movement doesnÂt leave anybody behind, just like her grandfa-ther told her.But beyond that, how do you take a cultural moment with a powerful mantra, and turn it into a sustainable, working movement? ThatÂs what Burke, 44, is concentrating on now, nine months into the #MeToo era. SheÂs spending the summer working on final plans for programming at Âme too.,ÂŽ her organization thatÂs housed at the Brooklyn-based Girls for Gender Equity, the nonprofit where sheÂs a senior director. The immediate goal: Launching a new online community in the fall, full of resources for survivors across the country.In a recent interview, Burke decried what she called a per-sistent false narrative about #MeToo.ÂAfter all this time, I still run into people every day who say, ÂYouÂre anti-men,ÂŽ Burke said from France, where she was speaking at the Cannes Lions Festival. ÂThey say, ÂAll you want to do is make people lose their jobs.Â And it just takes the focus away from what weÂre doing.ÂŽÂThese misconceptions are out there, no matter how much visibility I have, and theyÂre super harmful, because people believe them,ÂŽ she added. ÂSo the work I am doing with the visibility I have is to try to give people a broader perspective.ÂŽBurke has been on a headspinning ride since the day last October, shortly after the Weinstein story erupted, when actress Alyssa Milano encouraged survivors of sexual assault or harassment to tweet #MeToo.The hashtag spread like wildfire, and it was quickly pointed out that the phrase had originated with Burke. Since then, sheÂs been balancing her work at Girls For Gender Equity with countless high-profile appearances, where sheÂs been hailed as a standard-bearer for the movement: the Golden Globes, the Oscars, the Time 100 gala where she was hon-ored as one of the yearÂs most influential people, and many others.ÂPart of the challenge is trying to balance all these things,ÂŽ she says, Âmanaging this level of visibility and also knowing that we have to do a lot of groundwork.ÂŽEssential to that ground-work is fundraising. Whereas the legal defense fund of TimeÂs Up, the Hollywoodbased group advocating for gender equity in the workplace, has raised upward of $20 million, BurkeÂs own group has nowhere near that kind of money. Tennis legend Billie Jean King and TV host Robin Roberts each gave $100,000, and Google has given a $250,000 ÂGoogle RisingÂŽ grant. But the big-gest boost came in May, when Burke received a $1 million commitment Â„ and plans to raise twice that, annually Â„ from the New York WomenÂs Foundation.ÂI think a lot about what would have happened if we had been fully funded 12 years ago,ÂŽ she told a cheer-ing crowd at the foundationÂs breakfast, where the grant was announced.MeTooÂs Tarana Burke: Laying groundwork for the long haulSocial activist Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo movement, attends the Time 100 Gala celebrating the 100 most inÂ” uential people in the world April 24 in New York. [EVAN AGOSTINI/INVISION/ ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Tassanee Vejpongsa and Kaweewit KaewjindaThe Associated PressMAE SAI, Thailand Â„ Wor-ried that heavy monsoon rain could soon make the job even more difficult, Thai officials said Saturday that they may need to quickly rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach from a partially flooded cave by helping them make risky dives to safety.The boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach have been trapped for two weeks Â„ since June 23, when they went exploring in northern ThailandÂs Tham Luang Nang Non cave after a practice game. Monsoon flooding cut off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for almost 10 days.The only way to reach them was by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, as well as oxygen-depleted air.Getting out via the same route looks like the only feasible option, but a high-risk one, Thai officials say. Experienced cave rescue experts consider an underwater escape a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving, as the boys are.The path out is considered especially complicated because of twists and turns in narrow flooded passages.The local governor super-vising the rescue mission said Saturday that mild weather and falling water levels over the last few days had created appropriate conditions for an underwater evacuation, but that they wonÂt last if it rains again.Thai officials are stressing that they may have to act very soon Â„ meaning within the next couple of days. If weather forecasts are correct, access to the cave could soon close again due to flooding from seasonal monsoon rains. Earlier efforts to pump out water from the cave have been set back every time there has been a heavy downpour.Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said authorities were waiting for two big groups of volunteer foreign divers to arrive this weekend, after which they will be ready to act quickly to bring the team members out when the conditions are right.Narongsak said experts told him flooding from new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are shel-tering to just 10 square meters (108 square feet).ÂI confirm that we are at war with water and time from the first day up to today,ÂŽ he said. ÂFinding the boys doesnÂt mean weÂve finished our mis-sion. It is only a small battle weÂve won, but the war has not ended. The war ends when we win all three battles Â„ the battles to search, rescue and send them home.ÂŽThe boys sounded calm and reassuring in handwrit-ten notes to their families that were made public Saturday. The notes were sent out with divers who made an 11-hour, back-and-forth journey to act as postmen.One of the boys, identified as Tun, wrote: ÂMom and Dad, please donÂt worry, I am fine. IÂve told Yod to get ready to take me out for fried chicken. With love.ÂŽÂDonÂt be worried, I miss everyone. Grandpa, Uncle, Mom, Dad and siblings, I love you all. IÂm happy being here inside, the navy SEALS have taken good care. Love you all,ÂŽ wrote Mick.ÂNight loves Dad and Mom and brother, donÂt worry about me. Night loves you all,ÂŽ wrote Night, in the Thai manner of referring to oneÂs self in the third person.The most touching note came from one whose name was not clear: ÂIÂm doing fine, but the air is a little cold, but donÂt worry. Although, donÂt forget to set up my birthday party.ÂŽAnother, of indistinct origin, asked their teacher not to give them a lot of homework.In a letter of his own, the coach, Ekapol Chantha-wong, apologized to the boysÂ parents for the ordeal.ÂTo the parents of all the kids, right now the kids are all fine, the crew are taking good care. I promise I will care for the kids as best as possible. I want to say thanks for all the support and I want to apolo-gize to the parents,ÂŽ he wrote.An update Saturday from the Thai navy said three navy SEALs were with the boys and their coach, one a doctor. The 13 are having health evalua-tions and rehabilitation, and are being taught diving skills. Food, electrolyte drinks, drinking water, medicine and oxygen canisters have been delivered to them. A major concern of the rescuers is that oxygen levels in their safe space could fall danger-ously low.Rescuers have been unable to extend a hose pumping oxygen all the way to where the boys are, but have brought them some oxygen tanks.The death on Friday of a former Thai navy SEAL, Saman Gunan, underscored the risks of making the under-water journey. The diver, the first fatality of the rescue effort, was working in a vol-unteer capacity and died on a mission to place oxygen canisters along the route to where the boys and others are sheltered.Rescuers are also pursuing other options to extract the boys, hoping that find-ing a shaft or drilling into the mountain in which the cave is located will lead them to a sort of backdoor entrance. Tech billionaire Elon Musk has sent a team of engineers to Thailand to see if they can help in the rescue effort. MuskÂs Boring Company digs tunnels for advanced transport systems and has advanced ground-penetrat-ing radar.Thai o cials aim to rescue kids before rainIn this undated photo released by Royal Thai Navy on Saturday, Thai rescue team members walk inside a cave in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand, where 12 boys and their soccer coach have been trapped since June 23. The local governor in charge of the mission to rescue them said Saturday that cooperating weather and falling water levels over the last few days had created appropriate conditions for evacuation, but that they wonÂt last if it rains again.

** A4 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News Heraldmassive quantities of synthetic marijuana doused with various chemicals and even poison.Amid the fallout, authorities are seeing an increase in both arrests and deaths related to the difficult-to-detect drugs.Â€ Â€ Â€In some circles, inmates refer to the strain synthetic marijuana entering prisons as Âla cucarachaÂŽ because of the chemicals Â„ roach spray included Â„ added to the drugs.More commonly, it is known as ÂK2ÂŽ or ÂSpice,ÂŽ synthetic cannabinoids manufactured to be chemically similar to the THC found in organic marijuana. However, much of the flaky, potpourri-esque substance, at some point, is sprayed with other dangerous chemicals such as cockroach insecticide.ÂWhat they think they are smoking is often not what they are smoking,ÂŽ Majors said.In the 14th Judicial Circuit, the MEO has confirmed four inmate deaths related directly to K2 in the past year. About 18 more suspected K2-related deaths are pending death investigations over that same period of time, bogged down in the toxicology testing phase. The suspicion is based on surveillance and the deathnot beingattributed to stabbing, hanging or beating.Majors said the main difficulty in determining whether K2 played a direct role in an inmateÂs death is because of all the chemicalsÂ„such asroach spray, bath salts and even seizure medication Â„ added to the synthetic marijuana. While most K2 is doused with chemi-cals before entering the prisons, Majors said, inmates sometimes will wait for pest control compa-nies to spray the building so they can soak up the insecticides off the floor. ÂWeÂve looked into the roach spray,ÂŽ Majors said. ÂThe pest control companies provided the name of the chemical, and our labs donÂt have a way to test for it.ÂŽUntil a little more than a year ago, the MEOÂs turnaround on inmate death investigations hovered around the standard three months before a cause could be determined, Majors said. Now, there are inmate deaths that are backlogged more than a year.Â€ Â€ Â€Correctional officers and inmates alike have been caught furthering the rise of synthetic marijuana issues in local prisons. Contraband itself is nothing new, among officers or inmates. Since the beginning of 2018, reports details officers in this region attempting to smuggle in water bottles full of alcohol, metham-phetamine stuffed in feminine products and a gold teeth mold kit. A Panama City Beach man also recently attempted to hide two garbage bags Â„ containing an ounce of marijuana, 44 bundles of cigarettes, 12 cell phones with charges and a gold chain Â„ in a warehouse on the Northwest Florida Reception Center grounds for an undis-closed source to smuggle inside the prison.However, one of the most prolific busts occurred recently at Gulf Correctional Institute when an officer reportedly was caught smuggling 334 grams Â„ three quarters of a pound Â„ of synthetic marijuana into the prison in her bra and feminine hygiene products at one time, according to Florida Department of Corrections (DOC) officials.Gulf CI Officer Julia Summer Eagerton was arrested May 26 in that case. The DOC Office of Inspector General filed the charges after nine bundles of electrical tape containing K2 reportedly were found on Eager-ton as she attempted to enter the prison for her shift. According to the charges against Eagerton, she had been receiving some form of payment for bringing synthetic marijuana into the facility, but what her compensa-tion consisted of so far has been redacted from official reports.About a month later, medi-cal crews rushed to the Franklin County jail after six inmates fell ill and began vomiting, hal-lucinating and convulsing in a cell from smoking a joint of K2 allegedly smuggled in by another inmate.Vanda Vanessa McElveen, 56, had been brought to the jail after receiving charges of smug-gling contraband into the nearby prison, Franklin Correctional Institution. McElveen was strip-searched before entering the jail, but nothing was found. Jail records indicate another female inmate helped remove the K2 from a body cavity, and it then brought to the jail's kitchen and given to some male inmates over breakfast. Five of the six men were treated and released from a local hospital.The sixth man, whoreceived CPRfrom jail staff, later was flown by helicopter to be treated in a Tallahassee inten-sive care unit.Franklin County Sheriff A.J. Smith said the incident was the first of its kind at the jail. The inmate has recovered and been released from medical care, but in the future, Smith said he will be calling for assistance to help prevent K2 from coming inside."We're doing everything we can to keep contraband out," he said. "Our line of work is unpredictable. And sometimes our preparationscan't catch everything. But we do the best we can."Smith recently has asked the Franklin County Commission for x-ray machines to detect contraband that would otherwise be difficult to detect in a strip search. Â€ Â€ Â€Because of the difficulty in detection, synthetic marijuana is particularly attractive to inmates because it does not show up on standard urinalysis tests. But the underlying incen-tive for smugglers Â„ whether guards, inmates or visitors Â„ is ultimately economics, according to DOC officials.ÂSynthetic drugs are relatively cheap, and inmates see it as a profitable form of contraband,ÂŽ wrote Patrick Manderfield, DOC press secretary. ÂRecipes are readily available online, and the Department has intercepted homemade versions of it made with household chemicals through inmate mail.ÂŽAccording to the DOC, the rise of synthetic marijuana has been gradual over the past three years, culminating in the recent outbreak of arrests and over-doses. At the moment, though, K2 is by far the most recovered drug in FloridaÂs prisons, according to DOC figures from 2017. Authorities recovered 56,549 grams of the synthetic cannabinoids that year. The only drug to come close to that amount was marijuana, with officers recovering 6,226 grams. Narcotics pills and prescription pills came in the next two spots with 3,167 pills and 2,024 pills being seized, respectively.Not only is K2 a health risk to inmates, it's also creating new challenges for the prisons.ÂThe influx of contraband, specifically synthetic and homemade drugs, is a contributing factor to the increase in inmate violence and in-custody deaths,ÂŽ Maderfield wrote.DOC has been attempting to stave off the flow of all contraband in recent months in an attempt to eliminate organized criminal activity both inside and outside of local prison compounds. At the start of 2018, the department began examining preliminary causes of death in every in-custody death. Inves-tigators also have employed various methods of intelligence surveillance to combat weapons, drugs, cell phones and any other illegal items being smuggled into facilities. These methods include technology-based solutions such as surveillance cameras, x-ray and body scanning machines, metal detectors and cell phone detectors, as well non-technical methods including cell searches, perimeter property searches and canine interdiction teams. As part of their daily routines, field staff and correctional officers have been tasked with perform-ing improptu searches, DOC officials said.However, without proper staffing, the issue of synthetic marijuana appears to be an uphill battle. And one of the main struggles persisting for DOC is the inability to find people will-ing to carry out a sometimes dangerous and often thankless job.ÂWe have implemented an agency-wide effort to recruit and retain correctional officers statewide,ÂŽ Manderfield added. ÂThis is one of our highest pri-orities. The inability to properly staff our correctional facilities has a negative impact on all of our operations.ÂŽ K2From Page A1Well, quite a lot. The plot was riddled with flaws. No one had invented a bomb smaller than a can of beans, which would be impossible for an animal the size of a mouse to carry. And, most crucially, bats Â„ unlike dol-phins and pigeons Â„ cannot be trained to follow orders.Despite its imperfections, the batty plot was nevertheless given the green light. Its creator, a maverick Pennsylvania dentist and inventor named Lytle Adams, had some friends in high places. He had per-suaded first lady Eleanor Roosevelt to check out one of his earlier ideas, a plane that delivered mail without landing. So when he detailed the bat proposal in a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it didnÂt immediately wind up in the trash. Instead, it was forwarded to the National Research Defense Committee Â„ the group from which the Manhattan Project was spun off Â„ with a presidential note of recommendation.ÂThis man is not a nut,ÂŽ Roosevelt wrote. ÂIt sounds like a perfectly wild idea but is worth looking into.ÂŽThe bat bomb plan was stamped Âtop secretÂŽ and assigned the suitably sci-fi code name Project X-Ray. A crack team of senior Army types, arsenal experts, engineers and biologists was assembled. Together, they set about vaulting the schemeÂs more vertiginous hurdles.The first stage was to capture thousands of Mex-ican free-tailed bats from caves in the Southwest, where they roosted in the tens of millions. Then a bomb had to be developed that was light enough for half-ounce bats to transport. In a quintessentially American twist, parts for the diminutive bomb were manufactured in a factory owned by crooner Bing Crosby.With bats and bombs sorted, it was time to conjoin them. The miniature explosives were to be attached to the bats with twine, the presumption being that the bats would gnaw through it and leave the bombs behind. Then came the issue of controlling the bats. They were placed in refrigerators, forcing them into torpor for easy handling and trans-portation. But timing their thaw proved tricky. Several early tests with dummy bombs were a dud because the bats woke too late (causing them to plummet ingloriously to the ground once released) or too soon (before their cargo had been attached and allowing them to escape the base).Undeterred, the scientists ran a test using real incendiary devices in June 1943. Things did not go as planned. A report on the experiment stated some-what evasively that Âtesting was concluded ... when a fire destroyed a large portion of the test material.ÂŽ It failed to mention that the barracks, control tower and several other buildings at the auxiliary field station in Carlsbad, New Mexico, were set spec-tacularly ablaze by escapee bat bombers. The need to maintain military secrecy prevented civilian firefight-ers from entering the scene, and fire leaped from build-ing to building, incinerating most of the base. As a final insult, a couple of winged missiles went AWOL, taking up roost under a gen-eralÂs car before exploding. The project never recovered from this ignominious retreat, and it was canceled in 1944. Having set up some 30 tests and spending a couple million dollars, the United States put its focus behind developing a bomb that exploited the power of atoms. This proved to be easier to control than bats.Today, the U.S. military is again interested in bats not as front-line attackers but as defenders against a potentially devastating threat: Russian bioweapons. Fruit bats have an almost supernatural ability to harbor some of the planetÂs most deadly viruses with-out getting sick themselves. Inject an Egyptian fruit bat with the Marburg virus Â„ a hemorrhagic relative of the infamous Ebola virus Â„ and nothing happens. Do the same thing to a human, and within a week, the patient could be bleeding to death.These batsÂ extraordinary super-immunity long has fascinated virologists, and new research has shed light on how these flying frugi-vores achieve their supreme skill. Unpacking the mystery involved some cunning detective work from a coali-tion of scientists at Boston University and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. Their work was published in the journal Cell.ÂWhat we are trying to do is to study bat immunology, but that turned out to be a very difficult thing to do when starting from scratch,ÂŽ said Thomas Kepler, a professor of microbiology at Boston University. It took decades to create the reac-tive substances necessary to study human or mouse antibodies. With bats, he explained, they were starting from zero.So KeplerÂs team jump-started its work by examining the whole genome of the Egyptian fruit bat, chosen because it is a known reservoir for the lethal Marburg virus. It took two years just to assemble the genome. Once done, they compared it with other mammalsÂ genomes to hunt for idiosyncrasies, in particular an increase in size in any gene families that control the production of defensive proteins involved with immunity. They found significantly large interferon genes.ÂThese are interesting and very important, as they serve as the front line of anti-viral defense,ÂŽ Kepler said. Once a cell has become infected by a virus, the interferons alert the surrounding cells. ÂThey are basically a warning saying, ÂIÂve just been infected,Â Â he said. Neighboring cells then start shoring themselves up for a viral invasion.The other supersize set of genes in the fruit bat controlled the receptors on Ânatural killer,ÂŽ or NK, cells. These are essentially the bodyÂs police system for identifying infected cells. Typically, these receptors are activating, which means they trigger the NK cell to kill the damaged cell. But the fruit batÂs NK receptor genes appear to activate and inhibit NK cell function. BATSFrom Page A1 Franklin County Sheriff A.J.

** A6 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News HeraldBy John AntczakThe Associated PressLOS ANGELES Â„ Firefighters toiled in stifling heat Saturday on the lines of destructive wildfires across the U.S. West, making progress against some blazes while struggling to tame others that have forced evacuations of hundreds of homes.In heat-stricken Southern California, powerful winds that sent an over-night inferno hopscotching through the Santa Barbara County community of Goleta vanished in the morning, allowing firefighters to extinguish smoldering ruins of an estimated 20 structures, including homes.ÂItÂs really given us a good opportunity to get in there and get some work done,ÂŽ said county fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni.The fireÂs spread was stopped at about 100 acres or less and teams were working on an accurate tally of damage in the neighbor-hood, where some houses were in ruins while homes next door were intact.Eric Durtschi stood outside his destroyed house, where a burned-out car stood in the driveway and kidsÂ bicycles were strewn about. Durtschi, his wife and six children had left Utah and moved in just a few weeks ago. He said he hadnÂt yet told his two oldest children their home was gone. He managed to collect his severely burned vintage guns, hoping to salvage them.A neighborÂs home across the street was spared. The man had stayed through the night spraying down other peopleÂs houses.Elsewhere in Southern California, firefighters increased containment of a central San Diego County fire that rapidly spread over 400 acres, destroyed 18 structures and damaged eight, and a wildfire in the San Bernardino National Forest was holding at 1.5 square miles and forced evacuation of about 700 homes in the mountain community of Forest Falls.Fires also burned on the Marine CorpsÂ sprawling Camp Pendleton base in northern San Diego County.The Southern California fires erupted Friday as strong high pressure over the West spawned an epic heat wave that saw parts of Los Angeles broil in tem-peratures up to 117 degrees. There was little relief overnight.ÂTemperatures at 8 a.m. were ridiculously over 100 degreesÂŽ in foothills near Forest Falls and many inland valleys, the National Weather Service said.Forecasters said the regionÂs siege of heat would gradually ease through the weekend, but the unstable air mass unleashed downpours that triggered flash-flood warnings for the mountains northeast of Los Angeles.Further up north and just south of the California-Oregon border, the 34-square-mile Klamathon Fire in rural Siskiyou County was just 5 percent contained. The body of a resident was found Friday in the ruins of a home, among 15 destroyed structures tallied so far.Authorities described Âextreme fire behavior with movement in multiple directions,ÂŽ with threats to the California communities of Hornbrook and Hilt as well as Colestin, Oregon. Ray Haupt, chairman of the county Board of Supervisors, said losses included homes and livestock.Elsewhere in California, the 138-square-mile County Fire northwest of Sacramento was nearly 50 percent contained. Ten structures were counted destroyed but damage assessments were continuing.New wild res sweep through CaliforniaThe sun rises behind a home leveled by the Holiday Â“ re Saturday in Goleta, Calif. Evacuations were ordered as the Â“ re edged into residential areas. [NOAH BERGER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

** A10 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News HeraldNote sent last year to special counsel casts the former FBI director as ÂMachiavellianÂ and dishonestBy Eric Tucker and Chad DayThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Lawyers for President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering attack on former FBI Director James Comey in a confidential memo last year to the special counsel, casting him as ÂMachiavellian,ÂŽ dishonest and Âunbounded by law and regulationÂŽ as they sought to undermine the credibil-ity of a law enforcement leader they see as a critical witness against the president.The letter, obtained by The Associated Press, underscores the intense effort by TrumpÂs legal team over the last year to tarnish ComeyÂs reputation and pit the presidentÂs word against that of the former FBI director. ComeyÂs firing in May 2017 helped set in motion the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, and one-on-one conversations with Trump that Comey documented in a series of memos helped form the basis of MuellerÂs inquiry into whether the president obstructed justice.The June 27, 2017, letter was written by Marc Kasowitz, then the presidentÂs lead lawyer, as Mueller and his team were in the early stages of their investigation into Trump associates and as they had begun examining whether the president, by firing Comey, had sought to stymie an FBI investigation into the Trump campaignÂs ties to Russia. The White House initially pointed as justification for the firing to a Justice Department memo that faulted Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, though Trump later said that Âthis Russia thingÂŽ was on his mind when he made the move.ItÂs not clear to what extent, if any, the attacks on Comey have resonated with MuellerÂs team, which is broadly investigating Rus-sian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and continues to seek an inter-view with the president to assess whether he had a corrupt intent when he fired the FBI director. And even in the face of withering criticism, Comey has been largely consistent in his telling of his interactions with Trump in his memos, his book and numerous press interviews heÂs given in recent months. The 13-page document provides a window into the formation of a legal strategy that remains in use today by TrumpÂs lawyers Â„ to dis-credit ComeyÂs value as a witness. It could have new relevance in the aftermath of a Justice Department inspector general report that criticized Comey for departing from established protocol in the Clinton investigation.The letter aims to identify for Mueller what the lawyers believe are grievous errors both in how Comey handled the Clinton inves-tigation and in his early, and limited, encounters with the president. In it, Kasow-itz argues that Comey cannot be trusted as a wit-ness because he repeatedly embellished his testimony before Congress, put his Âown personal interests and emotionsÂŽ above FBI protocol and left a cloud of undue suspicion above the presidentÂs head.Trump lawyers blast Comey in memoThen-FBI Director James Comey testiÂ“ es on Capitol Hill on Jan. 10, 2017, in Washington.

** A12 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News HeraldBattle could come at expense of user growth for social media siteBy Craig Timberg and Elizabeth DwoskinThe Washington PostSAN FRANCISCO Â„ Twitter has sharply esca-lated its battle against fake and suspicious accounts, suspending more than 1 million accounts a day in recent months, a major shift to lessen the flow of disin-formation on the platform, according to data obtained by The Washington Post.The rate of account suspensions, which Twit-ter confirmed to the Post, has more than doubled since October, when the company under congressional pressure revealed how Russia used fake accounts to manipulate the U.S. presidential election. Twitter suspended more than 70 million accounts in May and June, and the pace has continued in July, according to the data.The aggressive removal of unwanted accounts may result in a rare decline in the number of monthly users in the second quarter, which ended last week, according to a person familiar with the situation who was not authorized to speak. Twit-ter declined to comment on a possible decline in its user base.TwitterÂs growing cam-paign against bots and trolls Â„ coming despite the risk to the companyÂs user growth Â„ is part of the ongoing fallout from RussiaÂs disinformation offensive during the 2016 presidential campaign, when a St. Petersburg-based troll factory was able to use some of AmericaÂs most prominent technol-ogy platforms to deceive voters on a mass scale to exacerbate social and political tensions.The extent of account suspensions, which has not previously been reported, is one of several recent moves by Twitter to limit the influence of people it says are abusing its plat-form. The changes, which were the subject of internal debate, reflect a philo-sophical shift for Twitter. Its executives long resisted policing misbehavior more aggressively, for a time even referring to themselves as Âthe free speech wing of the free speech party.ÂŽTwitterÂs Vice President for Trust and Safety Del Harvey said in an interview this week the company is changing the calculus between promoting public discourse and preserving safety. She added that Twit-ter only recently was able to dedicate the resources and develop the technical capa-bilities to target malicious behavior in this way. ÂOne of the biggest shifts is in how we think about balancing free expression versus the potential for free expression to chill someone elseÂs speech,ÂŽ Harvey said. ÂFree expression doesnÂt really mean much if people donÂt feel safe.ÂŽBut TwitterÂs increased suspensions also throw into question its estimate that fewer than 5 percent of its active users are fake or involved in spam, and that fewer than 8.5 percent use automation tools that characterize the accounts as bots. (A fake account can also be one that engages in malicious behavior and is operated by a real person. Many legitimate accounts are bots, such as to report weather or seismic activity.)Harvey said the crack-down has not had Âa ton of impactÂŽ on the numbers of active users Â„ which stood at 336 million at the end of the first quarter Â„ because many of the problematic accounts were not tweet-ing regularly.Twitter sweeping out fake accountsThe Twitter logo is displayed outside the companyÂs headquarters in San Francisco.

** A14 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News Herald The Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ Steve Ditko, the Marvel Comics artist who gave the world the woven webs and soar-ing red-and-blue shape of Spider-Man and the other-worldly shimmer of Doctor Strange, has died, authorities said Friday. He was 90.Ditko was found June 29 in his Manhattan apartment and was pronounced dead at the scene, police Lt. Paul Ng said. No further details were immediately available.Ditko, along with writer Stan Lee, introduced the world to Peter Parker and his alter-ego Spider-Man in 1962 in an issue of ÂAmazing Fantasy.ÂŽ A year later, Ditko introduced the world to sur-geon-turned-metaphysical superhero Doctor Strange. Spider-Man would go on to become arguably the most indispensable and recognizable character in the Marvel universe, and Doctor Strange a member of its permanent pantheon. The adventures of both have been turned into blockbuster films, and both had essential roles in the recent ÂAvengers: Infinity War.ÂŽÂComics are unimagina-ble without his influence,ÂŽ tweeted Patch Zircher, a comic-book artist who has worked on ÂBatmanÂŽ and ÂSupermanÂŽ for DC Comics. ÂHe co-created Spider-man, which will be remembered as significant as Doyle creating Sherlock Holmes or Fleming creating James Bond. Spider-man may outlast them both.ÂŽWhile Lee embraced his status as a creative god among comics fans, appearing at conventions and in constant cameos in MarvelÂs films, Ditko was a recluse who won the wor-ship of the most hardcore comic-book geeks.They were quick to praise him and the massive influence he had on art, film and culture Friday.ÂThank you Steve Ditko, for making my childhood weirder,ÂŽ fantasy author and graphic novel author Neil Gaiman said in a series of tweets to his 2.7 million followers. ÂHe saw things his own way, and he gave us ways of seeing that were unique. Often copied. Never equalled. I know IÂm a different person because he was in the world.ÂŽ Ditko, Spider-Man co-creator, dies

** A16 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News HeraldKirsten GrieshaberThe Associated PressBERLIN Â„ Research suggests the family of Anne Frank, the world famous Jewish diarist who died in the Holocaust, attempted to immigrate to the United States and later also to Cuba, but their efforts were thwarted by AmericaÂs restrictive immigration policy and the outbreak of World War II.The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum said Friday that documents indicate AnneÂs father Otto tried twice to collect the papers needed to obtain visas for the United States. He later also appears to have applied for a visa to Cuba.However, the Frank familyÂs escape efforts were all in vain. Eventually they went into hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam on July 6, 1942 Â„ 76 years ago. ÂI am forced to look out for emigration and as far as I can see USA is the only country we could go to,ÂŽ Otto Frank wrote in English to a friend in the United States in 1941.His efforts to get the family out of the Netherlands to the U.S. likely started as early as 1938 Â„ a turbulent year in which Nazi Germany annexed Austria and part of Czecho-slovakia into the Third Reich. On Nov. 9 that year, Nazis terrorized Jews throughout the country in the violent Kristallnacht pogroms, also known as the ÂNight of Broken Glass.ÂŽOtto Frank wrote in his 1941 letter to his friend Nathan Straus that he had filed an application at the American consulate in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam in 1938.However, he also mentioned that Âall the papers have been destroyed there,ÂŽ because on May 14, 1940, while the Frank family was still on a waiting list for pos-sible visas, the American consulate was devastated during German bombardment and all papers were lost.Even without the loss of their visa application, it would have been difficult for the Franks to immigrate to the United States. With hundreds of thousands of people seeking refuge in the U.S. each year by the time war broke out in 1939, Washington was issuing fewer than 30,000 annual visas.The processing of a visa application also lasted sev-eral years and included a huge amount of paper work, affida-vits from relatives or friends in the U.S. Even with all these demands fulfilled, applicants could still be turned down.The new research focused on the paper trail, looking at documents like the affidavits of support, testimonies on character and other such items provided to the U.S. authori-ties in the screening process, in addition to items like birth certificates, wedding certifi-cates, tax clearances and more.The war further complicated any immigration efforts. A renewed attempt in 1941 to get the family to the U.S. failed because all American consul-ates in Germany-occupied Europe, including the Netherlands, were closed by the Nazis. A visa application to Cuba that same year also never came through.While the Franks were not explicitly denied visas by the American consulate, Âtheir efforts were thwarted by American bureaucracy, war and time,ÂŽ the historians wrote.ÂAll their attempts failed, so going into hiding was their last attempt trying to get out of the hands of the Nazis,ÂŽ said Annemarie Bekker from the Anne Frank House.The family hid for more than two years during the war and it was then that Anne wrote her famous diary. On Aug. 4, 1944, they were discovered and ulti-mately deported to Auschwitz.Only AnneÂs father Otto survived the war. Anne and her sister died in Bergen-Belsen camp. Anne was 15.After the war, Otto Frank had his daughterÂs diary published, and it went on to become a symbol of hope and resilience that has been trans-lated into dozens of languages.The house where the Franks hid was turned into a museum that is one of Amster-damÂs most popular tourist attractions.Records: Anne FrankÂs family tried to escape to USDr. Otto Frank holds the Golden Pan award, given for the sale of one million copies of the famous paperback ÂThe Diary of Anne FrankÂŽ in London, Great Britain on June 14, 1971. New research suggests that the family of Anne Frank, the world-famous Jewish diarist who died in the Holocaust, attempted to immigrate to the United States and later also to Cuba, but their efforts were tragically thwarted by AmericaÂs restrictive immigration policy, cumbersome bureaucracy and the outbreak of World War II. Only Otto Frank survived the holocaust. [DAVE CAULKIN/AP FILE]
** The News Herald | Sunday, July 8, 2018 A17It said the outcome of the follow-up talks was Âvery concerningÂŽ because it has led to a Âdangerous phase that might rattle our willingness for denuclearization that had been firm.ÂŽThere has been growing skepticism in the U.S. over how serious Kim is about giving up his nuclear arse-nal, and both sides have said they needed clarity on the parameters of an agreement to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula that Trump and Kim reached in Singapore.ÂWe had expected that the U.S. side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leadersÂ summit... we were also thinking about providing reciprocal mea-sures,ÂŽ said the statement, released by an unnamed spokesman and carried by the NorthÂs official Korean Central News Agency.ÂHowever, the attitude and stance the United States showed in the first high-level meeting (between the countries) was no doubt regrettable,ÂŽ the spokesman said. ÂOur expectations and hopes were so naive it could be called foolish.ÂŽAccording to the spokesman, the North raised the issue of a possible declaration to formally end the 195053 Korean War, which concluded with an armistice and not a peace treaty, but the United States came up with a variety of Âconditions and excusesÂŽ to delay a declaration. The spokes-man also downplayed the significance of the United States suspending its mil-itary exercises with South Korea, saying the North made a larger concession by blowing up the tunnels at its nuclear test site.In criticizing the talks with Pompeo, however, the North carefully avoided attacking Trump, saying Âwe wholly maintain our trust toward President Trump,ÂŽ but also that Washington must not allow ÂheadwindsÂŽ against the Âwills of the leaders.ÂŽIn comments to reporters before leaving Pyongyang, Pompeo said his conversations with senior North Korean offi-cial Kim Yong Chol had been Âproductive,ÂŽ conducted Âin good faithÂŽ and that Âa great deal of progressÂŽ had been made in some areas. He stressed that ÂthereÂs still more work to be doneÂŽ in other areas, much of which would be done by working groups that the two sides have set up to deal with specific issues.North Korea said it offered to discuss the clo-sure of a missile engine test site, which would Âphysi-cally affirmÂŽ a move to halt the production of inter-continental range ballistic missiles, and setting up working-level discussions for the return of U.S. war remains.Pompeo said a Pentagon team would be meeting with North Korean offi-cials on or about July 12 at the border between North and South Korea to discuss the repatriation of remains and that working-level talks would be held soon on the destruc-tion of North KoreaÂs missile engine testing facility.In the days following his historic June 12 summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Trump had announced that the return of the remains and the destruction of the missile facility had been com-pleted or were in progress.Pompeo, however, said more talks were needed on both.ÂWe now have a meet-ing set up for July 12 Â„ it could move by one day or two Â„ where there will be discussions between the folks responsible for the repatriation of remains. (It) will take place at the border and that process will begin to develop over the days that follow,ÂŽ he said as he boarded his plane for Tokyo.

With that plan approved, a check for roughly $2.8 million, representing the countyÂs first-year funding under the RESTORE Act, should be received this month. ÂWe think we will be ready for Aug. 1,ÂŽ Yeager said. That $2.8 million is the last significant chunk of funding the project needed to proceed.Eligible voters approved three Municipal Services Taxing Units (MSTUs) two years ago to provide some $4 million. The Gulf County Tourist Development Coun-cil is chipping in some beach restoration funding, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is paying just over a third of the projectÂs cost.But the RESTORE Act funds, which the county first filed for early last year only to have to amend the multi-year spending plan to reflect changes in the restoration project, were essential. The amended planÂs public comment period ended in March.The Board of County Com-missioners in January approved a bid for the restoration proj-ect, which now will focus solely on beaches between the Stump Hole rock revetments to the southern boundary of Billy Joe Rish Park.Manson Construction, based in Washington State, will perform the work.

The island's meteorological service said weather conditions would start deteriorating Saturday night and warned of 6-12 inches of rain, with the storm expected to cross over or near Dominica late Sunday or early Monday.Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said in a public address that the storm's track and intensity could still change and urged people to remain alert."They should not let their guard down," he said.He also asked people to store water because he said the gov-ernment would be shutting down the water system as a preventive measure.A tropical storm watch was issued for the French Carib-bean territories of Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin and St. Barts as well as the islands of Barbados, St. Lucia, Saba and St. Eustatius. Deeper into the Caribbean, a state of emergency was declared in Puerto Rico, where Maria caused more than an estimated $100 billion in damage.Beryl was named the first hurricane of the Atlantic season Friday. At 11 a.m. Saturday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Beryl's strength had diminished and it had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph. It was cen-tered 720 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and was moving west at 14 mph.People in the Caribbean were taking no chances. Long lines were reported outside grocery stores on the islands of Dominica, Puerto Rico and elsewhere as people bought food and water. Among those stocking up was Sandra Whitcher, an owner of Cof-feeriver Cottages in Dominica."Here's hoping it misses us," she said, adding that crews fortified the roofs on all seven cottages that survived Hurricane Maria. "I can't say I'm not scared, but I know we have prepared as much as we can possibly do."Forecasters said Beryl is expected to weaken further after entering the Caribbean. It was expected to pass about 70 miles south of Puerto Rico on Monday, but forecasters warned the storm-wracked U.S. territory could see up to 30 mph winds and heavy rains that could cause flooding and mudslides.Meteorologist Odalys Mar-tinez said in a phone interview that conditions in Puerto Rico would deteriorate late Sunday, with up to 3 inches of rain possible."There is a lot of uncer-tainty," she said.Forecasters said Beryl prob-ably would dissipate once it moved south of Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Tuesday or Wednesday.Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello declared a state of emergency for the island and suspended work Monday.Beryl weakens ; Caribbean prepares for rainBy Jim Thompson315-4445 | @Jimtnwfdn firstname.lastname@example.orgDeFUNIAK SPRINGSÂ„ The 35-year-old Navy man charged with attempting to have sex with an underage girl was among the men targeted in a child sex sting operation conducted four months ago through the Walton County Sheriff's Office.Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Corey Dobridnia said 35-yearold Ray Morris Klett Â„ who at the time of his arrest was a sailor assigned to the guided-missile destroyer U.S.S. Ralph Johnson based in Everett, Washington Â„ was communicating with an undercover police officer in early March during an operation dubbed "Pala-din's Shield." According to Dobridnia, Klett was stay-ing in Pensacola at the time, "waiting for his ship to be commissioned." The destroyer was commissioned on March 24 in Charleston, S.C., and then headed for Naval Sta-tion Everett.Paladin's Shield was conducted by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The Walton County Sheriff's Office worked in conjunction with the Okaloosa, Escambia and Wakulla county sheriff's offices, police departments in Panama City, Pensacola, Gulf Breeze, Tallahassee and Gainesville and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Between Feb. 28 and March 5, Paladin's Shield resulted in the arrests of seven men in North-west Florida and a Pennsylvania man on charges including using a computer to seduce, solicit or lure a minor, using a two-way communication device to facil-itate a felony and traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a minor. In Klett's case, an undercover Panama City police detective working with Paladin's Shield was contacted by him Â„ under the alias Mike ZuccaroÂ„ regarding a Craiglist ad posted as a ruse. In the ad, she posed as the mother of a 14-year-old girl looking for a sexual "mentor" for her daughter. Later in the sting, the detective impersonated the fictional girl. From March 1-3, according to case records, Klett sent six photos to the 14-year-oldÂ„ three of his face, one of his genitals covered by underwear, and two showing his exposed genitals. Case records also show emails between Klett and the 14-year-old included sexually explicit messages. "I (would) like to kiss from your lips go down and take your pants off and (perform sexual acts)," one email read. The men arrested initially in the sting traveled to meet what they thought were young boys and girls with whom they were planning to engage in sexual acts, only to be met by law-enforcement officers. Klett headed to Santa Rosa Beach, but turned around while he was en route and apparently avoided arrest."(A)t the time of travel he did not provide the probable cause for arrest and I did not provide any information about where to meet," the undercover detective wrote in a report.The Walton County investiga-tion continued beyond Paladin's Shield. One of the photos that Klett sent during the sting showed him in a Navy uniform, so authorities contacted the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which tracked Klett to the Washington-based ship. Klett waived extradition pro-ceedings in Snohomish County, Washington, and was booked into the Walton County Jail on June 28 on charges similar to those filed in Paladin's Shield. Klett remained in jail Friday under a $100,000 bond for charges of using a computer to seduce, solicit or lure a child, transmitting harmful information to minors and using a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony.Sailor arrested on child sex charges was targeted in March sting PaladinÂs Shield operation initially netted eight o enders Klett 85W 90W 80W 75W 65W 70W 60W 55W 50W45 W 25N 30N 20N 15N 10N 400 miles Atlantic Ocean Caribbean Sea Gulf of Mexico GATEHOUSE MEDIA Source: nhc.noaa.gov; maps4news.com/HERE Two tropical stormsProbable paths 8 p.m. Sat. 12.9N, 53.5WTropical Storm Beryl 5 p.m. Sat. 32.9N, 75.3WTropical Storm Three 2 p.m. Tue. 2 p.m. Wed.. 2 a.m. Mon. 2 p.m. Sun. 2 p.m. Mon. 2 a.m. Mon.

NOT FORGOTTEN MansonÂs bid provided the most sand for the countyÂs budgeted $10.2 million in total funding for the restoration project.The sand, the countyÂs consulting engineer Michael Dombrowski said, will cover the proposed boundaries of the project, from Stump Hole to Rish Park.In addition, according to Dombrowski, Manson will use a large hopper to dredge the sand from an offshore borrow area and is projecting to complete the work and be off the beach within 45 days of the start date.That will slash the construction timeline by almost 80 days and reduces costs.The work will fall directly in the middle of sea turtle season, as the season is transitioning from nesting to hatchlings emerging. Jessica Swindall with the St. Joseph Peninsula Turtle Patrol, said her group has been relocating turtles since the first nests were discovered in May. Manson was one of two bidders on the project, which was re-bid late last year after the BOCC rejected an initial round of bids. Those initial bids came in some 40 percent over the countyÂs budget.In re-bidding, the county Âreverse-bidÂŽ the project, requiring contractors to detail how much sand the county could purchase and place on the beach for the $10.2 million.MansonÂs bid was 705,882 cubic yards; Great Lakes DredgeÂs bid less than half that amount.Dombrowski said the county realized savings by re-bidding the project. With the elimination of some surveying, oversight and inspection services because of the shorter timeframe for the project, the county saved right at $1 million, he said.The unit cost per cubic yard of sand of $1.50 was also lower.Had the county accepted the low bidder on the first round of bids last year, which was Great Lakes, it would have received 510,000 cubic yards of sand, based on per unit cost in the bid and the countyÂs available funds, Dombrowski said.ÂThere was a substan-tial cost savings by doing this method,ÂŽ Dom-browski said. ÂWe gained 200,000 cubic yards.ÂŽThe hope is that sand placed on the southern end of the six-mile length of the peninsula moves, or accretes, north. That was the case in the origi-nal restoration project of a decade ago, with a signifi-cant amount of sand, in the hundreds of thousands of cubic yards, moving south to north.Similar accretion is the hope in the future.Some residents to the north of Billy Joe Rish Park have complained that while they were taxed as all peninsula property owners, they will not immediately receive sand as originally pledged.No one, however, argues with the need to get sand on the beach as soon as possible; structures are being threatened, as Dombrowski predicted two years ago.The restoration is roughly one year behind the county's most opti-mistic timeline.ÂWe need to get sand out there,ÂŽ said Dr. Pat Hardman, president of the Coastal Community Association of Gulf County.

** B4 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News HeraldBy David A. FahrentholdThe Washington PostPresident Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club has applied for permission to hire 61 foreign workers to serve as waiters and cooks during the winter social season in Palm Beach, according to data posted this week by the Labor Department.The latest data was posted late Thursday on the department's website: Trump's club has asked to hire 21 cooks from overseas and employ them from October to May. At the end of that term, the workers would be expected to return home.Earlier on Thursday, another posting showed Trump's club also wants to hire 40 foreigners to serve as waiters and waitresses at the club. Mar-a-Lago is a for-profit social club, catering to the wealthy wintertime residents of Palm Beach. It also houses private living quarters for Trump who has visited repeatedly, and dubbed the club the "Winter White House."The postings show that Â„ despite Trump's insistence that immigration is holding down wages and crowding out native-born American workers Â„ his club has chosen not to hire Americans in South Florida for two very common restaurantindustry jobs. The application to hire waiters was first reported Thursday by BuzzFeed.The Mar-a-Lago Club repeat-edly has used foreign workers in the past. Last year, his company applied for permission to hire waiters, housekeepers and cooks.These postings give some hints about the business Trump's company expects at Mar-a-Lago this year Â„ and also about what it is willing to pay workers, in a time of slowly rising wages.This year's postings show Trump's club wants to hire one more foreign cook than last year. But it is seeking to pay those cooks slightly less than in 2017: the posting says Mar-a-Lago's pay for cooks starts at $13.31 per hour, down 3 cents from the year before. The posting for waiters shows Trump wants to hire five more foreigners for those jobs than in 2017. The base salary his club is offering to waiters is higher in 2018: It rose from $11.88 per hour last year to $12.68 per hour this year.The increases in the numbers of foreign workers sought by Mar-a-Lago come at a time when the club's business model seems to be changing Â„ transformed, by Trump's divisive politics from a club focused on charity galas to a GOP clubhouse frequented by Trump's friends and allies.TrumpÂs Mar-a-Lago Club petitions to hire foreign workers instances of professional fees being utilized for expenses which do not appear to serve a public purpose. The DME (Dis-trict One Medical Examiner) workload, when no associate medical examiner is employed, appears excessive.ÂŽMinyardÂs attorney, Ted Borowski, blasted the audit and claimed MinyardÂs Âchar-acter and work ethic have been disparaged despite fulfilling her contractual obligations in a pro-fessional manner.ÂA collection of misleading statements combined with a sprinkling of financial figures does not constitute a credible audit as conducted in accordance with the Standards for Professional Practice of Inter-nal Auditing,ÂŽ Borowski wrote.The auditors noted that they struggled to get records to con-duct the review in the first place, as Minyard retained legal coun-sel and disputed the counties' right to audit. She eventually relinquished digital copies of her QuickBooks files, a portion of their 2017 tax statement, a copy of office policies and pro-cedures as well as a portion of other requested information.Auditors determined that MinyardÂs office used public funds to throw employee birthday parties, provide bonuses and pay her daughters $77,000 to work for her during the summer months between 2010 and 2017. They also found instances in all four counties in which the county was billed twice for removal services for the same body. Additionally, Okaloosa County was billed for body removal and pathol-ogy cases that were not on their case list.The audit also questioned the purpose of the medical exam-inerÂs Fort Walton Beach office, which is paid for by Walton and Okaloosa counties despite no autopsies having been performed there since 2014. All autopsies are performed in Pen-sacola, and all four counties pay $100 per week for the director of operations to drive back and forth between the Fort Walton Beach and Pensacola offices.The audit found inconsistencies in office personnelÂs travel expenditures, including charging counties 50 cents per mile despite the currently approved state reimbursement rate of 44.5 cents per mile. The counties also were charged an average of $100 per month for SunPass toll replenishments, despite the medical examinerÂs office not providing the proper receipts to prove that the toll usage was a valid busi-ness charge and not for personal travel.The audit also found that, despite an excessive workload and an average of 395 autopsies per year between 2012 and 2016, Minyard only had an associate medical examiner 36.7 percent of the time. The professional fees paid for by the counties are a flat rate that include the salaries of both the medical examiner and associated medical exam-iner, so for all the time Minyard did not have an associate medi-cal examiner, the auditor said it appeared she pocketed the fees for both positions.Okaloosa County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller J.D. Peacock ordered an internal audit of MinyardÂs office in May, saying reviews of contracts with each of the four counties indicated there wasnÂt sufficient supporting documentation to clearly understand where tax-payer dollars were going.Peacock said he was getting ÂpushbackÂŽ from MinyardÂs office in providing several of the financial records and documents he requested.The Okaloosa County Com-mission voted unanimously May 1 not to endorse Min-yardÂs pending reappointment as medical examiner after they heard various concerns about Minyard from Peacock and Okaloosa County Sheriff Larry Ashley.MinyardÂs attorneys filed a lawsuit against all four counties May 15, claiming the counties had no right to audit all of her officeÂs financial records.County Commissioner Nathan Boyles said Friday that the audit Âconfirmed what we had feared, which is that the medical examiner has been charging excessive fees for the provision of services to the citi-zens of Northwest Florida.ÂŽHe said the commissionÂs decision not to recommend Minyard for re-appointment was the right one.ÂIn light of the additional information weÂve received from this report, that was abso-lutely the right decision,ÂŽ Boyles said. ÂI suspect that this will continue to be the position of Okaloosa County, and that itÂs time for a change in the position of District 1 medical examiner.ÂŽIn all, the audit revealed six findings and provided recom-mendations for each of them: Â€ Finding 1: The medical examiner doesnÂt provide counties with a comprehensive budget of all revenues and expenditures, so the counties have not been able to gain a full understanding of the actual cost of operating the medical examinerÂs office. Â€ Finding 2: The medical examiner has been using county-funded resources without compensation to the counties, and has been double-reimbursed by both the counties and the Florida Department of Corrections for expenses related to salary, morgue personnel and body transport, as well as public records requests. Â€ Finding 3: The medical examiner collected $197,840 in cremation authorization fees throughout the audit period and was supposed to use the entirety of that income to offset expenses and reduce countiesÂ annual budget allocation, but instead set aside half of the fees to cover Âbudget shortfallsÂŽ and counted the other half toward her own personal income. Â€ Finding 4: The medical examinerÂs office has been sub-mitting invoices for expense reimbursements without proper documentation, including monthly employee reimburse-ment costs and toll charges. Â€ Finding 5: Fees paid to the medical examinerÂs office are not being used exclusively for a public purpose; in some instances the medical exam-iner was found to using taxpayer monies to pay her personal accounting expenses and personal tax payments, as well as payments to her family mem-bers for summer jobs. Â€ Finding 6: The medical examinerÂs compensation is not clearly defined and her workload, absent a full-time associate medical examiner, appears excessive.Minyard's term expired July 1.In a letter to law enforcement agencies June 29, State Attorney Bill Eddins said his office had consulted with Gov. Rick ScottÂs office and had determined that MinyardÂs term would remain in effect until Scott makes a formal appointment Â„ either Minyard or someone else. Chief Assistant State Attorney Greg Marcille said the governor would make an appointment at the recommendation of the Medical Examiners Commission.Minyard was appointed in 2004 by then-Gov. Jeb Bush to lead FloridaÂs District 1 Judi-cial Circuit Medical ExaminerÂs Office. The privately run district encompasses Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties. Its main office is in Pensacola. FINANCESFrom Page B1

ÂI donÂt feel 80 anyway.ÂŽNonetheless, with fellow pilots and friends and family waving from the ground, McFadden zipped overhead Saturday and established himself in the elite group of flying octogenarians. He joined the ranks of only about 1,500 pilots flying in the country after the age of 80, according to the United Flying Octagenarian's count. As he landed, McFadden said the flight was as exhilarating as any other.ÂI donÂt know if itÂs hit me,ÂŽ he said.McFaddenÂs path toward the recognition started about 40 years ago as a FatherÂs Day gift with his first solo flight.

[JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] it still smells out here like fire and destruction.ÂŽAs the children played and kicked up dirt Friday in the driveway of a surviving home, Shannon and other residents looked over the destruction of their neighbors' homes. The fast-moving wildfire, which started late June 24 and reportedly stemmed from an earlier prescribed fire ordered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), claimed the homes of 36 families and torched about 820 acres in the matter of only a couple hours.Almost two weeks later, the more than 100 men, women and children displaced still are relying on the generosity of others in the community for places to sleep since efforts by federal, state and local government to bring temporary housing have stalled out.Dominick Rotella, a resident of Wilderness Road, recalled driving to the grocery store for a rack of ribs that day only to return to find the walls of pine trees ablaze. After rushing to his house, he evacuated with his wife and children in his truck, not knowing if anything would be there when they came back.ÂThere was no time, no warning; just grab what you love and run,ÂŽ Rotella said. ÂI had everything I love in the truck. The rest is mate-rial stuff.ÂŽRotellaÂs home was spared from the flames by a Âfire lineÂŽ cut deep into the soil of his front yard by a forestry tractor. His family since has been allowing neighbors to camp in their front yard or use their laundry facilities.Much like others in the community who didnÂt lose their homes, though, Rotella lost a work boat in the fire that provided for his family. He said losing the house, too, would have been devastating.ÂIt wouldÂve killed us,ÂŽ he said.Â€ Â€ Â€A few miles away at the Franklin County SheriffÂs Office, Sheriff A.J. Smith was on the phone much of Friday with local, state and federal officials. He said he'd expected 31camper trailers Â„ used previously to house displaced Hurricane Irma survivors Â„ to arrive a day earlier from Homestead. Efforts to get the trailers, however, have stalled out indefinitely as the dis-placedendured a triple-digit heat indexover theweekend, Smith said.ÂIÂm beyond frustrated,ÂŽ he said. ÂThis is another weekend with these people out in the heat. This is unacceptable.ÂŽSmith said the issue arose when the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) declined to allow a nonprofit corporation, Capital Area Community Action Agency (CAC),to buy the trailers for Franklin County.Tim Center, CEO of the CAC, said the sticking point has been that his organization is not a "public agency" despite deriving its funding from the federal government. After several conversations Friday, though, representatives of local and state government agencies landed on a deci-sion to have Franklin County buy the trailers and then be reimbursed by the CAC. The CAC then will inspect the trailers to make sure they're fit for people to live in before they are moved to individual home sites. Center cautioned that the trailers would not be a permanent solution. "They will be provided free up to six months," he said. "This is not a permanent solution. This is a temporary fix. What we want to provide is some sign of hope for those families that have been displaced."Center said the CAC will be working with the families to determine long-term housing solution afterward. For now, even the short-term housing has come down to a waiting game as the Franklin County Commission has to convene in an emergency meeting to approve about $200,000 to buy the trailers. When that will take place was unclear late Saturday.ÂGovernment is supposed to help,ÂŽ Smith said. ÂThese people just want a place to live.ÂŽÂ€ Â€ Â€Meanwhile, residents in Eastpoint displaced by the blaze will be relying on the generosity of others in the community for shelter and supplies. Many in the community have donated food, money and clothing. Despite the efforts, though, residents are saying they need consis-tent shelter and storage units to put the supplies in so they are readily available.ÂThey havenÂt got these people no kind of help for a place to stay,ÂŽ Rotella said. ÂSome kind of support would just warm your heart up a little bit.ÂŽIn the immediate term, Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis has sent adjusters to Eastpoint to help residents file a partial claim settlement for up to $5,000 per household to help with immediate needs.As of 11 a.m. Friday, 16 of those claims had been paid."Staff will continue to work diligently to verify the remaining claims for each household," a news release stated. "Claims filed undergo a final verification, so funding can be disbursed as soon as possible."With an SUV filled with clothes theyÂd collected from donations, Shannon said her family would be sleeping that night at nearby church. ItÂll be the fourth place in the almost two weeks since losing their home that her family will have received shelter, and Shannon said they were grateful. However, she wished they didnÂt have to move from place to place each night.ÂThey need to start doing something instead of giving us the runaround,ÂŽ Shannon said. ÂWe get that youÂre trying, but we donÂt have a home.ÂŽ HOUSINGFrom Page B1Siblings Krislyn Shiver, 6, and 4-year-old A.J. share a cold drink Friday as the temperature rose to the high 80s in Eastpoint.

** B10 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News Herald ON THE WATERGary RobbinsThe San Diego Union-TribuneGULF OF MEXICO Â„ UC San Diego has discovered the world's first known nursery for manta rays, an idyllic spot in the Gulf of Mexico where the "gentle giants" approach divers along colorful reefs that seem drawn from the imagi-nation of Walt Disney.An exploration team led by Josh Stewart, who is finish-ing up his doctorate in marine biology at the university's Scripps Institution of Ocean-ography, made the discovery and confirmed its importance over the past few years.He was aided by colleagues from NOAA who manage the site, which is part of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuaries, about 70 miles south of Galveston, Texas. Finding adult manta rays is easy; divers see them in many locations. But in a mystery that has long confused sci-entists, juveniles rarely swim openly in defined places during the four to five years it takes them to become adults.Stewart has been trying to solve the mystery for years, and had some initial success in 2016 when he saw a juvenile oceanic manta ray (Mobula birostris). He later saw more juvenile mantas and, with help from the NOAA researchers, determined that he'd happened upon a nursery. The discovery was published this week in the journal Marine Biology.The juveniles largely were found in an area when the sea floor slopes into deeper water."We think they may be feeding on specific types of zoo-plankton there, then migrating up toward the surface, where we saw them," Stewart said. "They might be hanging around the banks because it could be a little safer than open water."We've seen them so rarely (in the past) that we know very little about these juveniles. We don't know how far they move, or exactly what they feed on, or all of the habitats these access."But Stewart can say with certainty that simply hanging in the water, waiting for manta rays to arrive, is a remarkable thing to experience."You're out there, doing your work, and you look up and there's the distinctive shape of a manta," Stewart said. "At first, you can barely see it. But then it comes into view and my heart skips a beat. (The adults) are gigantic. They can have a 21-foot wingspan. And they're super-friendly. They'll get really close to you."That makes them a lot dif-ferent from other large marine species, who keep their distance. Mantas are curious. They're interested in why divers are blowing bubbles. They'll hang out. I can't think of another large animal that will do that with you."First known manta ray nursery discoveredA manta ray swimgs near Buoy 1 of the East Flower Garden Bank in July 2015. [G.P. SCHMAHL/FLOWER GARDEN BANKS NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY] Jim TurnerThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ As calls grow for state action to deal with toxic algae blooms in Southeast and Southwest Florida, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced funding is in place to speed repairs to the Herbert Hoover Dike around Lake Okeechobee.The Army CorpsÂ Jack-sonville office said Thursday that $514.2 million is heading toward repairs of the dike, which is basically a 30-foot-high earthen structure that surrounds the lake. An overall $17.4 billion in fund-ing for the Corps includes additional money for beach restoration and coastal flood control in Florida. Gov. Rick Scott and other state and federal officials from Florida have been clamoring for increased funding for the dike project, which had been scheduled for completion in 2025. The state approved $50 million in each of the past two years to speed up the federal proj-ect, which, with the newly announced money, is now expected to be done in 2022.The dike money has become a political issue as Scott challenges U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., in November.The repairs are considered an essential step in allowing the lake to hold more water, which would reduce the need for discharges into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee river estuaries to the east and west. Residents on both coasts blame polluted water releases from the lake for what has become an annual summer outbreak of toxic algae blooms in the rivers.On Thursday, state Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R-Fort Myers, wrote a letter to Scott requesting a state of emergency in the Lee County area due to red tide and blue-green algae blooms in the Caloosahatchee River and along the Southwest Florida coast.ÂWe must warn our residents and unsuspecting tourists of the potential risks of swimming, fishing, con-suming fish caught from the Caloosahatchee or the Gulf waters and of any other recreational water sports during this outbreak,ÂŽ Fit-zenhagen wrote.Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, who is running for the Democratic nomination for governor, on Friday urged Scott to issue an executive order hiring companies to remove algae on the lakeÂs surface.The dike repair money is part of $3.348 billion in federal disaster recovery funds the Jacksonville office is getting to reduce flooding risks in Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Florida is expected to see about $815 million of the federal money, with the bulk Â„ more than $2.5 million Â„ headed to hurri-cane-ravaged Puerto Rico.Florida is also getting money for coastal flood risk management in various areas, mostly in southern counties. Also, federal beach-hardening projects in Brevard, Broward, Duval, Lee, Nassau and Sarasota counties will each get $2 million.Dike repair money coming amid algae woes Mike SchneiderThe Associated PressTITUSVILLE Â„ After trawling the Atlantic Ocean for days, Rodney Thomp-son returned to his Florida home and dropped buckets of rock shrimp in the middle of the kitchen.He ordered his four school-age children to stop playing and figure out a way to cook them.Rock shrimp were consid-ered trash. Their hard, spiny shells would split thumbs open and take forever to peel.ThompsonÂs challenge to his children lasted for months, until his oldest daughter, a teenage Lauri-lee, had the idea to split them open, cut out the sand veins and broil them like lobsters. They were delicious. That was 50 years ago. The Thompson familyÂs discovery led to the popularization of a cuisine that today is served all along the Florida Atlantic coast Â„ most famously at a restaurant owned by Thomp-sonÂs family in Titusville.ÂWe call him the Daddy of the rock shrimp industry,ÂŽ said Bob Jones, executive director of the Southeastern Fisheries Association. ÂHe was the only one who saw the opportunity to get the meat out so you could eat them because they were so hard.ÂŽIt all began with ThompsonÂs quixotic dream of building a 73-foot fiberglass shrimp boat. Back in the 1960s, shrimp boats were still made of wood and many fishermen resisted fiberglass.Thompson, a taciturn man with an inventive mind, was a boat builder by trade in Titus-ville, which by then had gone from a citrus and fishing town to a bedroom community for NASA workers laboring at the neighboring Kennedy Space Center to land a man on the moon.His staff worked on the boat for a year. But it was built on spec, and there were no buyers. So, Thompson turned to shrimp fishing to show off the boatÂs prowess, and began catching buckets of the ined-ible rock shrimp. He asked his four children, Laurilee, Sherri, Tom and Tim, to help him find a way to cook them.ÂWhen I figured it out, finally, we were sitting there in our misery one day, wish-ing we were playing pool, and riding horses, and not look-ing at big piles of stupid rock shrimp on the table,ÂŽ said Laurilee Thompson, now 65. Laurilee suddenly grabbed a steak knife and began cut-ting a half-dozen rock shrimp open along their bottom edges. Her mother, Mary Jean, melted butter, poured it over them, and stuck the shrimp in the broiler. And then the whole family gath-ered around and stared for the two minutes it took them to cook. The rock shrimpsÂ tails curled up and the flesh pulled away from the shell, just like a lobster. They pulled them out of the oven and tasted them.ÂThat was probably the biggest, ÂEureka!Â moment of all of our lifetimes,ÂŽ Laurilee Thompson said.Rodney Thompson enlisted the neighborhood kids to form an assembly line in his wifeÂs kitchen after school each day. One kid would crack open the shrimp, another would wash it and others would pack the shrimp into boxes, which were delivered to dozens of bars and grills up and down the Indian River. The rock shrimp were salty, which the bar owners liked because their patrons, who fished off their docks, would eat them and buy more beer.The demand quickly outgrew the capacity of the family kitchen, so Thompson rented space at Port Canav-eral and started hiring grown-ups. Using a sewing machine motor and a vacuum cleaner belt, he also built mechanized splitters that could crack the rock shrimpÂs hard shell. The Thompson children returned to their play.Rock shrimp span from the Atlantic coast of the southern U.S. states into the Gulf of Mexico as far as MexicoÂs Yucatan peninsula. Their Spanish name is camarones de piedra. Considered no more than bycatch before the Thompson familyÂs efforts in the late 1960s, the annual haul Â„ still predominantly caught in Florida waters Â„ grew to thousands of tons a year by the 1980s.Thompson, meanwhile, continued to build boats through the 1970s. But he overextended himself, and when interest rates soared and a recession hit in the early 1980s, he was forced to sell his businesses. Thompson lost all three of his boats, two restaurants and the shrimp-processing plant.Not long afterward, Rodney and Mary Jean Thompson started over with a tiny diner. Their restaurant, ÂDixie Crossroads,ÂŽ struggled. For three years, customers wanted rock shrimp but Thompson couldnÂt serve them because he didnÂt have a boat and couldnÂt get a loan.One day, friend and fisherman Sam Vona invited Thompson down to his port office and showed him a freezer with a padlock. He told Thompson that the rock shrimp inside were his and that the freezer always would be full. He knew Thompson couldnÂt pay him back, but he would keep track and Thompson could repay him when he got back on his feet.ÂThey were really good friends, and my dad had a lot of faith in Rodney doing what he did and getting a market for that shrimp,ÂŽ said VonaÂs daughter, Cissy Shipley.Thompson installed shrimp splitters in Dixie CrossroadsÂ kitchen and started selling rock shrimp off the menu. Lines into the restaurant started winding around the building, with two-hour waits.Over the decades, he built additions to the restaurant, which today seats 465 people. NASA officials used to bring astronaut families there before space shuttle launches. In recent years, the restaurant and a separate seafood retailer run by the family have each had around $6 million in sales annually.Thompson died a yearand-a-half ago. His daughters, Laurilee and Sherri, run the businesses today. Though Vona died in 2012, the Thompsons will never forget his kindness in helping to launch one of Flori-daÂs best-known restaurants.ÂLook where it is now,ÂŽ Laurilee Thompson said. ÂWe sell a lot of rock shrimp.ÂŽ Rock shrimpÂs rise to fame Employees clean and prepare various kinds of shrimp at the Dixie Crossroads restaurant in Titusville. Rock shrimp, once considered trash is celebrating 50 years as a popular Florida cuisine. [JOHN RAOUX/AP]

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 8, 2018 B13By Ellie RushingSun SentinelDEERFIELD BEACH Â„ South Florida's not quite Jurassic Park, but it's getting close.Packs of green iguanas are swarming seawalls, roaming yards and parks, and leaving a path of destruction and filth in their wake. Like a shot of espresso, the hot summer sun has stoked activity in the cold-blooded creatures, which experts say might be at record numbers."This year is the most iguanas I've seen and I've been in business for nine years," says Thomas Portuallo, owner of Fort Lauderdale-based Iguana Control. He said the invasive lizards are out of control with "many hundreds of thousands" creeping around Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. The prehistoric populations are multiplying like rabbits, and causing inter-net, phone and power outages (barbecued lizard, anyone?), damaging landscapes, levees, seawalls, roofs and patios, and contaminating pools with poop."There's no real way to come up with a valid estimate of the number of green iguanas in Florida. But the number would be gigantic," said Richard Enge-man, a biologist for the National Wildlife Research Center. "You could put any number of zeros behind a number, and I would believe it."And the critters have resi-dents steamed up Â„ literally.About 8 percent of power outages, or 9,200 a year, are caused by animals and birds, said Richard Beltran, a Florida Power and Light spokesman. In South Florida, iguanas are the second leading cause of power outages, behind squirrels. But that's well behind power failures caused by vegetation, Beltran points out. FPL uses raptor guards and bird diverters to cover 75,000 miles of power lines, switches and conductors at 600 substations, he says. If an animal touches two of the three power lines attached to a pole, that's when current zaps them. Grace DeVita, of Hollywood, says she can't escape iguanas at home or work. A few months ago, internet and phone service at her office went down after iguanas climbed power lines and chewed through cables."There was an iguana with a piece of wire hanging out of his mouth," DeVita says. It took two days for power to be restored the first time, and then it happened again two days later. DeVita even pulled an iguana out of her toilet after it latched on to a plunger a few years ago. "In one of my bathrooms, my roommate kept hearing something in his toilet and saw something poking its head out," she said. "It was very aggres-sive." Incidents like these keep business booming for Portuallo, 57, whose fast-growing company helps homeowners and businesses fight infestations. Iguana Control has four offices in South Florida and Collier County.Portuallo, of Parkland, said homeowners can control the beasties by regularly inspecting yards for iguana burrows, often found next to seawalls, and collapsing the holes and adding dirt. They love to eat hibiscus and bougainvillea, so landscape with plants they don't care for, such as crotons, ixora and oleander. "Make it known that they aren't welcome on your property," he said.The creatures can grow up to five feet long and are fast on land and in water, making them difficult to catch. They have no natural predators. If you have a few, live and let live. Ten or more are a problem because popula-tions grow exponentially, he said.Portuallo says his company humanely and lawfully exterminates iguanas using $1,000 precharged pneumatic pistols to deliver one shot to the head. "We don't shoot to injure, we shoot with intent to kill," Portuallo said. "My men are well-trained. We follow all laws in every municipality we work."It is legal to shoot iguanas in the head with a pellet gun, stab them in the brain and even decapitate them as long as they don't suffer, according to state law. University of Florida researches say bashing in an iguana's head and destroying its brain quickly is the most humane way to kill one.It's a crime to drown, freeze or poison iguanas. "When you put out rat poison, you can't control what's going to consume it," Portuallo says. "The animals die a slow, excruciating death, which is inhumane."Contrary to popular belief, dogs and cats aren't at risk from iguana feces."Most pet instances are trauma injuries," says Douglas Mader, a Marathon veterinarian who specializes in exotic animal medicine. "I have seen a couple dozen dogs come in with inju-ries from getting bit by iguanas or slashed by their tails."The species are native to Cen-tral and South America and the Caribbean and thrive in Florida's subtropical climate. They reach sexual maturity in 18 months, laying an average 40 eggs per clutch per year, Engeman says.Florida's iguana problem began in the 1960s after the reptiles escaped from captivity during hurricanes and as unwanted pets released into the wild. Cold snaps keep the populations in check. How-ever, South Florida hasn't seen one extensive enough to make an impact since 2009, he says. "Florida's got one of the worst invasive species problems in the world. It is at the top," said Engeman, who has been doing research on the reptiles for 20 years. He says iguanas were able flourish while biologists were busy studying environmental impacts of pythons and feral pigs.The public needs to under-stand the environmental threats iguanas pose, he says. But love 'em or hate 'em, people are fascinated by the creatures."They're just kind of a lounge-y lizards that people like to look at," Engeman said. "People think they're just prehistori-cally cute."Out-of-control iguanas infesting S. FloridaNews Herald staff reportWASHINGTON COUNTY Â„ A Vernon man has been arrested on a charge of child abuse after a woman reported finding a shoe-shaped mark on the back of a 6-year-old child in his care.Demetric Webb was arrested July 5. The woman who reported the alleged crime told police Webb had been babysitting the child July 3, and she noticed the mark July 4. Statements of those staying at the residence alleged Webb hit the child with a shoe multiple times after he became angry when the child was jumping on the bed. Webb reportedly admitted to spanking the child.During the initial investi-gation, a Washington County sheriff's deputy obtained wit-ness statements corroborating the childÂs version of the inci-dent and photographs that showed an injury resembling a bruise on the childÂs lower back, in the shape of a shoe.Webb was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail on one count of child abuse, a third-degree felony.Vernon man charged with felony child abuse Trapper Brian Wood holds an iguana he caught behind a condominium in Sunny Isles Beach.

[SUBMITTED PHOTO] By Steve DouglasThe Associated PressSAMARA, Russia Â„ England achieved something David BeckhamÂs generation never managed: It reached the semi-finals of the World Cup. Harry Maguire and Dele Alli scored with headers in a 2-0 win over Sweden on Saturday, earning EnglandÂs youthful team a match against Croatia for a place in the final on July 15.ÂWe looked composed,ÂŽ England captain Harry Kane said. ÂWe looked like we controlled the game.ÂŽEnglandÂs fairly muted cel-ebrations reflected the routine nature of the victory over a hard-working Swedish side that had already gone further than expected in its first major tournament without Zlatan Ibrahimovic.EnglandÂs deep run also is a surprise. Not even the Eng-land side containing stars like Beckham, Steven Gerrard and a young Wayne Rooney ever got this far at a major tournament.The 1966 World Cup champions last reached the semifinals in 1990, losing the first of a series of haunting penalty shootouts. In 2014, the team didnÂt even make it out of the group stage.Yet the performances of Gareth SouthgateÂs squad Â„ the second youngest at the tournament Â„ are being celebrated wildly back home. Even at Wimbledon, the home of lawn tennis, updates of Eng-landÂs goals were spread by fans watching or listening to the match on their cell phones.England defeats Sweden 2-0EnglandÂs Harry Maguire celebrates after scoring the opening goal during the quarterÂ“ nal match against Sweden at the 2018 World Cup in the Samara Arena, on Saturday in Samara, Russia. [FRANCISCO SECO/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressLONDON Â„ Simona Halep was ready for a vacation. ItÂs going to start a week earlier than she wanted after she gave away a big lead, wasted a match point and lost at Wim-bledon, joining the procession of top women on the way out.Ranked and seeded No. 1, fresh off her winning first Grand Slam title at the French Open, so sure she had figured out how to overcome the big-moment anxiety that was so problematic for so long, Halep chastised herself as Âunpro-fessionalÂŽ after bowing out in the third round at the All England Club on Saturday, dropping the last five games while being beaten 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 by Hsieh Su-Wei of Taiwan.ÂI just was too negative to myself, talking too much. I think because I was tired, because IÂm tired, I couldnÂt stay focused for every ball,ÂŽ Halep said. ÂMentally, I was tired. Also physically, I feel tired. My muscles are gone.ÂŽFor the first time in Wimbledon history, none of the top five womenÂs seeds reached the round of 16. Only one of the top 10 seeds will be in action in Week 2: No. 7 Karolina Pliskova. The only past champion at the grass-court tournament left is Serena Williams. Only two other women among the 16 left even own a Grand Slam singles title: Angelique Kerber has two, Jelena Ostapenko one.ÂI mean, IÂm not surprised anymore,ÂŽ said 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko, a 6-0, 6-4 winner against Vitalia Diatchenko, who eliminated five-time major champion Maria Sharapova in the first round. ÂBecause every day, something strange is happening in the draw.ÂŽFar less so in the menÂs bracket, although No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev did depart Saturday with a 7-6 (2), 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-0 loss to Ernests Gulbis, a Latvian ranked 138th who is the first male qualifier since 2012 to reach Wimble-donÂs fourth round.In this case, though, Gulbis already has been a major semifinalist Â„ he made it that far at the 2014 French Open, but his ranking slid because of a series of injuries Â„ while the up-and-coming, 21-year-old Zverev has yet to have that sort of breakthrough.Otherwise, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro all won on a day the English spectators were preoccupied with two things: soccer and the sun. They followed along on cell phones as England beat Sweden 2-0 in the World Cup quarterfinals in Russia Â„ the All England Club did not put that other sport on any of the video screens Â„ and used umbrellas, fans and lotion to deal with heat that reached 90 degrees.After loss at Wimbledon, No. 1 Halep calls self ÂtiredÂSimona Halep of Romania loses a point to Su-Wei Hsieh of Taiwan during their womenÂs singles match on the sixth day at the Wimbledon Championships on Saturday in London. [BEN CURTIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] ÂI just was too negative to myself, talking too much. I think because I was tired, because IÂm tired, I couldnÂt stay focused for every ball. Mentally, I was tired. Also physically, I feel tired. My muscles are gone.ÂŽSimona Halep See HALEP, C2 See ENGLAND, C2 See YOUTH, C2
** C2 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News HeraldHalep essentially wilted after leading 5-2 in the third set. She wouldnÂt win another game.ÂI tried,ÂŽ Hsieh said later, Âto hang in there.ÂŽHalep was a point from victory while ahead 5-4 as Hsieh served at 30-40. But the 48thranked Hsieh got out of that predicament with a backhand winner.Halep held two break points in the last game, but failed to convert either.Asked when she thought she could win the match, Hsieh responded, ÂI donÂt feel I can,ÂŽ then leaned forward and laughed heartily. She did a lot of that during her news conference, making jokes and cracking her-self up.She plays an uncon-ventional brand of tennis, relying on drop shots repeatedly Â„ which, she said, tends to drive prac-tice partners ÂcrazyÂŽ Â„ and gripping her racket with two hands for fore-hands and backhands.Getting to the fourth round equals her best run at a major tourna-ment in singles, although she does own two Grand Slam doubles champion-ships. And she apparently enjoys the spotlight, because all three of her career victories over top-10 opponents came at the Australian Open (two-time major cham-pion Garbine Muguruza), French Open (2017 Wimbledon semifinalist Johanna Konta) and, now, Wimbledon.ÂI know the fans here are enjoying it,ÂŽ Kane said. ÂThe fans at home, IÂm sure weÂll see some videos tonight of them enjoying it.ÂŽThe chant of ÂOn our way, on our way, to Moscow, on our wayÂŽ came from England fans in one corner of the Samara Arena throughout the match, and the teamÂs march to the Russian capital is being fuelled by goals from set pieces.There was another against Sweden, with Maguire heading in a driven corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute. It was EnglandÂs eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russia, and the center backÂs first in international soccer.The standard of EnglandÂs crossing has particularly stood out this tournament, and Alli added the second goal by meeting a far-post cross from midfielder Jesse Lingard with a power-ful header in the 59th. At 22, Alli became the sec-ond-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup behind Michael Owen.ÂWe knew set plays would be key,ÂŽ Maguire said. ÂAnd also that little ball that Jesse sent in for Dele, that was great. We worked on that in practice.ÂŽ It proved to be a match too far for the Swedes, who advanced further than they ever did with Ibrahimovic Â„ the teamÂs star for more than a decade Â„ by being compact and hard to break down. That helped them win a two-leg playoff against Italy to get to the World Cup, top a group containing Germany, and then beat Switzerland in the round of 16.They began solidly against England in a slow and sloppy start to the game that resembled a pre-season friendly at times, only to be outdone by a goal Sweden isnÂt used to conceding.ÂUp until that corner, I felt that we had everything under control,ÂŽ Sweden coach Janne Andersson said. ÂI felt that we had the match in our hands.ÂŽAlthough Sweden rallied in the final 30 min-utes, forcing two good saves from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, Eng-land comfortably held on for its first shutout of the tournament. SterlingÂs strugglesEngland forward Raheem Sterling has yet to score at the World Cup from his unusual position as the support striker to Kane, and his finish-ing let him down against Sweden.Set clear by Jordan HendersonÂs long pass over the defense late in the first half, Sterling tried to get around Sweden goalkeeper Robin Olsen but was stopped. Sterling got hold of the loose ball but his shot was deflected over.SterlingÂs movement was very good, though, causing SwedenÂs slow defense problems throughout. He is likely to retain his starting place for the semifinals. Swedish tacticsVirtually from kickoff, Sweden sent long passes forward to tall striker Ola Toivonen and looked for a flick-on. It was a sign of what was to come Â„ direct balls, long throws, pressing Â„ but those basic tactics didnÂt trouble England.The Sweden team got in a huddle after the game and Andersson spoke to the players.ÂWe were sad and weÂre disappointed,ÂŽ Andersson said, Âbut we mustnÂt forget we put in an excellent performance. I wanted to say that already on the pitch, too, to our players.ÂŽSweden last reached the World Cup semifinals in 1994, and ended up finishing third. ENGLANDFrom Page C1 HALEPFrom Page C1ÂThe goal is to give kids the closest experience they can have to being a (college) freshman student-athlete,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou donÂt have a car, you have to walk everywhere, you practice two times a day on Wednesday and Thursday and once on Friday, they eat three times a day in a cafeteria with other college students, and they have off-the-field activities.ÂWeÂre giving them that experience that a lot of stu-dent-athletes in certain areas probably wonÂt get and weÂre giving them that experience in middle school. We want to show them how to take the right path to getting a college scholarship.ÂŽThe players, who were chosen for the Future Stars Game from a pool of over 500 student-athletes at eight regional camps, were also privy to tutelage from former NFL stars such as former New York Giants run-ning back Brandon Jacobs and Miami Dolphins Hall of Fame defensive end Jason Taylor.ÂThese are the types of people we surround ourselves with to let these studentathletes get the real deal,ÂŽ Ali said. ÂThereÂs no sugarcoating it. This is what it takes to be successful playing football. The main goal is to get these athletes on the right track to earning a college scholarship.ÂŽFSG, which began in 2011 with Ali as Team Florida Director since 2013, has a pretty impressive track record in that regard. According to Ali, 84 of the 95 athletes from Team FloridaÂs class of 2018 have signed college scholarships.ÂWeÂre in the 90th percen-tile and thatÂs an ÂAÂ in our book,ÂŽ Ali said. ÂOur goal is to have 100 percent. Right now weÂre on the right track and itÂs proven that once you give them a taste of it, it gives them the motivation to put in the work needed to get there.ÂŽ YOUTHFrom Page C1 By Tales AzzoniThe Associated PressSOCHI, Russia Â„ Nyet this time.Although Russia made it fur-ther at this yearÂs World Cup than most anyone expected, it was Croatia that advanced to the semifinals with a 4-3 shootout victory Saturday fol-lowing a 2-2 draw.The overachieving hosts, the lowest ranked team in the tournament at No. 70, were trying to make it to the World Cup semifinals for the first time since the Soviet Union finished fourth at the 1966 tournament in England.Even Russian President Vladimir Putin was taken in by the host nationÂs surprising run, at least according to Russia coach Stanislav Cherchesov.ÂPutin called me during the day, and he called me right now,ÂŽ Cherchesov said. ÂHe congratulated us on a very good game. He said what we showed on the field was great. I told him we were disappointed. He said we should have our eyes open and make the next steps.ÂŽThe Croats hadnÂt advanced to the semifinals at the World Cup since 1998, when the country made its first appear-ance. Croatia will next play England in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow.With the crowd silenced following an extra-time header from Croatia defender Domagoj Vida in the 101st minute, Russia defender Mario Fernandes scored with his own header in the 115th to send the match to yet another penalty shootout. Fernandes, who was born in Brazil but rejected a chance to play for that countryÂs national team in 2011, sent his penalty kick wide of the net in the shootout, giving Croatia the advantage.Both goalkeepers made early saves in the shootout, with an injured Danijel Subasic stopping the opening shot from Fyodor Smolov. Igor Akinfeev later blocked an attempt from Mateo Kovacic.At 1-1, Fernandes missed his shot Â„ only the second player to miss in any of the four shootouts at this yearÂs World Cup.The teams then traded two scores each before Ivan Rakitic calmly converted the winning penalty.ÂWe should have finished the job before penalties but maybe itÂs written in the stars we have to go through the extra drama,ÂŽ said Luka Modric, whose penalty bounced off AkinfeevÂs hand and the post before entering the other side of the net.Denis Cheryshev gave Russia the lead in regulation time with a long-range shot into the upper corner in the 31st minute. Croatia equalized with Andrej KramaricÂs header near halftime.ÂI left everything on the field and unfortunately we were unlucky,ÂŽ Russia midfielder Roman Zobnin said. ÂWe gave everything we could.ÂŽIt was the second straight time both teams played in a penalty shootout. Russia beat Spain 4-3 and Croatia defeated Denmark 3-2 in the round of 16.Shootout win sends Croatia to semi nalsCroatia national soccer team players celebrate after a penalty is saved in a shootout during the quarterÂ“ nal match against Russia at the 2018 World Cup in the Fisht Stadium, on Saturday in Sochi, Russia. Croatia won the match 4-3 on penalties after the game ended 2-2 after extra time. [MANU FERNANDEZ/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

** C6 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Kevin BrockwayGateHouse MediaFlorida has earned the name DBU for a reason. Since 2000, the Gators have sent 22 defensive backs to the NFL, with several going on to long, productive careers.HereÂs a look at the five best defensive backs to come out of Florida this century:1. Joe Haden: Haden played at UF from 2007-09, starting his first game as a true fresh-man and earning freshman All-America honors in start-ing 12 games that season. As a sophomore in 2008, Haden added 3 interceptions, includ-ing an 88-yard pick returned for a TD, and helped lead UF to its third national title in school history. Haden finished his Florida career with 7 interceptions, earning AllAmerican honors as a junior in 2009, before foregoing his senior year to enter the NFL draft. Haden has had a successful NFL career with 20 career interceptions and two Pro Bowl appearances (2013, 2014) in eight seasons with the Cleveland Browns and Pitts-burgh Steelers.2. Janoris Jenkins: Yes, Jenkins finished his career at North Alabama. Yes, Jenkins was kicked off the Florida team following his junior year by incoming coach Will Muschamp after multiple arrests and disciplinary issues. But that doesnÂt discount what Jenkins accomplished in three years wearing a Gator uniform, beginning with starting as a true freshman in 2008 and teaming with Haden to form the best cornerback duo in college football. Jenkins and Haden were the Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin of UFÂs defense, helping lead the Gators to a 2008 national title. Jenkins also was a first-team All-SEC corner in 2010 and has gone on to a successful NFL career. In six seasons with the former St. Louis Rams and New York Giants, Jenkins has 16 career interceptions and 9 TDs.3. Reggie Nelson: When Nelson starred at Florida in 2006, the phrase was coined, Âtwo-thirds of the earth is covered by water, the rest is covered by Reggie Nelson.ÂŽ Nelson was a complete safety in two sea-sons at Florida, a hard-hitter who could also cover the field sideline-to-sideline. Nelson had six intercep-tions for the Gators in 2006, including two returned for TDs, earning AllAmerican and first-team All-SEC honors in helping lead Florida to a national title. Nelson is entering his 11th year in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders and has 36 career interceptions.4. Lito Sheppard: Sheppard was a two-time, All-SEC first team selection (2000 and 2001) and earned firstteam All-American honors as a sophomore in 2000. Sheppard had 8 career inter-ceptions in three seasons with the Gators before being taken in the first round of the NFL draft in 2002 by the Philadelphia Eagles. Sheppard went on to play 9 years in the NFL with the Eagles, New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders, finishing his career with two Pro Bowl appearances (2004, 2006) and 19 interceptions.5. Keiwan Ratliff: Ratliff, who played at Florida from 2000-03, still holds school records for interceptions in a season (9) and game (3). A consen-sus All-American in 2003 and first-team, All-SEC standout in 2002 and 2003, Ratliff was taken in the second round of the NFL draft by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2004. Ratliff had 5 career interceptions in six NFL seasons with the Bengals, Tampa Bay Buc-caneers, Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers.Honorable Mention: Vernon Hargreaves III, Jalen Tabor, Matt Elam, Major Wright, Quincy Wilson.

Â„ Harold Varner and Kelly Kraft are looking to add to the crop of first-time winners on the PGA Tour in West Virginia.Varner shot a 4-under 66 Saturday to tie Kraft at the top entering the final round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier.Both are seeking their first tour wins in their 85th starts. Since this tourna-ment debuted in 2010, there have been four first-time champions, but no third-round leader has won.ÂI wish we could go play right now,ÂŽ Varner said. ÂIÂm pretty hungry. This is what you work for. This is what I get so pumped up to do.ÂŽVarner had four backnine birdies after 10 consecutive pars to catch Kraft, the second-round leader who let a four-stroke lead slip away and shot 1-under 69.Both were at 14-under 196.VarnerÂs best finish on tour was a tie for fifth at the OHL Classic in Mexico in 2016. He has one top-10 finish in each of the past two years and won the Aus-tralian PGA Championship in 2016.ÂI guess this whole thingÂs new to me because IÂve never had a lead going into the last day,ÂŽ Varner said. ÂBut I donÂt really lack confidence. ThatÂs never really been a problem. I just need to slow down and take it all in. Because thereÂs going to be something that happens tomorrow where I can learn and I can grow and I can get a lot better. So it goes back to keeping it in perspective. ÂThat was deep. Sorry.ÂŽKraft, who finished fifth in last yearÂs tournament, refused to get down on himself despite bogeys on two of his final three holes Saturday.ÂIÂm just going to stay patient tomorrow,ÂŽ he said. ÂI hit a lot of good shots today.ÂŽFifteen golfers were within five shots of the lead. The tournament has been decided by two or fewer strokes every year and has gone to a playoff three times. The 2016 tour-nament was canceled after devastating floods.The Old White TPC dried out on a sunny Saturday and scores werenÂt as low as the first two days when rains softened the course and yielded eight rounds of 63 or better.Varner, Kraft tied for Greenbrier leadBy Mark LongThe Associated PressDAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Â„ Erik Jones has won a crash-filled NASCAR race at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night, passing defending series champion Martin Truex Jr. on the final lap and then crossing the finish line for the first vic-tory of his Cup Series career.Jones was involved in one of the many wrecks, but his No. 20 Toyota was still in good enough shape to get by Truex.Truex finished second, followed by AJ Allmendinger, Kasey Kahne and Chris Bue-scher. It was another odd top 10 at Daytona. Ty Dillon was sixth, followed by Matt DiBenedetto and Daytona 500 champion Austin Dillon.Last yearÂs race winner, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., had the most memorable run. He started two early accidents that wrecked more than half the field and was part of two more cautions late.Chevrolet extended its winless streak to 18 races, its longest since a 31-race drought in 1981-82.Erik Jones wins NASCAR Cup race at DaytonaJoey Logano (22) hits the wall as he is involved in a multi-car crash also involving Kasey Kahne (95), Kurt Busch (41), Daniel Suarez (19), Erik Jones (20) and others during the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. Jones went on to win the crashÂ“ lled event in extra laps. [RON SANDER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Godwin Kellygodwin.firstname.lastname@example.orgDAYTONA BEACH Â„ It looked like 19-year-old Justin Haley had made the biggest move and scored the largest win of his young career when he took the checkered flag in the Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 before an estimated 20,000 at Daytona International Speedway.But moments after the finish, it was Kyle Larson doing victory donuts in the tri-oval grass and celebrating his third NASCAR Xfinity Series tri-umph of the season Friday.ÂThis is pretty special,ÂŽ said Larson, who received a smattering of boos from the stadium. Â(Haley) had a mas-sive run coming and did all he could do to win, but clipped the yellow line there.ÂThis is a little bit of shock for me, but this is awesome.ÂŽ NASCAR took the win away from Haley Â„ officially a black flag Â„ because his left wheels dipped below the double yellow line, which meant he had gone out of bounds.Instead of a win, he was credited with an 18th-place finish.With Haley removed, second and third place moved up to first and second, giving Larson a narrow win over Elliott Sadler.Sadler, who has four second-place Xfinity finishes at Daytona, said he never saw Haley coming as the leaders thundered to the finish line in overtime.ÂMy spotter and I were con-centrating on Larson,ÂŽ Elliott said. Â(Haley) made a courageous move. It surprised me to death.ÂI was trying to figure out how to deal with Larson and when (Haley) came by it star-tled me. It was like he was 20 mph faster than us.ÂŽHaley, making his second career Xfinity start, was not happy with the final outcome.ÂI wish NASCAR would tell us how much of the car we can have under the yellow line,ÂŽ he said. ÂI saw the replay and there was room for me to go up so I donÂt know why they called it like that.ÂThatÂs not the way I wanted it to end. ... I am extremely blessed to have this opportunity.ÂŽElliott looked beaten down in his post-race interview.ÂThis one hurts,ÂŽ the 43-year-old veteran said. ÂI donÂt know how many of these plate races I have left in my career.ÂI was paying attention to Kyle. He was trying to slow me down and (Haley) shot around us. ItÂs been a tough day for me. Winning the race tonight would have made a difference.ÂŽ The first half of the race was clean.Larson dominated Stage 1 (30 laps), then rallied to win Stage 2 (60 laps) by overtaking Ryan Blaney on Lap 58.He was mixing it up in the lead pack all night, which was good because there were two, mid-pack ÂBig OneÂŽ crashes involving multiple cars in the run to the checkered flag.The first one on Lap 82 involved 17 cars, plus the spec-ter of Austin Cindric barrel rolling his No. 60 Ford in the carnage of sheet metal. He walked away from the wreck.Rules violation costs Haley X nity winA crash takes place in the Â“ nal laps of the Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway on Friday.

GROOVINÂGroovinÂ on the Green features Daric Freeman on the Village Green in Carillon Beach from 7-9 p.m. Monday; concert series sponsored by the Carillon Beach Institute By Frank SargeantSpecial to The News HeraldOffshore trolling requires a good imagination. If you canÂt visualize, every minute, that great spear of a giant billfish slashing through the water behind that 5-pound lure bouncing in the wake, it can become an exercise in boredom.ThereÂs a whole lot of waiting between strikes most days when you go big game fishing. Sometimes, there are days between the billfish bites, in fact. Some days a yellowfin tuna, a wahoo or several high-fly-ing dolphin-fish (mahi) may spice up the action, as well as the grillÂ„ nothing like still-twitching fillets cooked at sea to whet the appetite. But some days that purple-black sea seems as empty as the back side of the moon for miles and miles.The only attraction for the fish out there is the interface between currents, where different speeds, densities or temperatures of water cause a rip, a seam in the water, along which the golden Sargasso weed along with all the ocean flotsam gathers, sometimes in slowly whirling drifts that extend for miles.Beneath the sargasso are tiny fish of several kinds, and beneath them are often ÂchickenÂŽ dolphin weighing 2 to 5 pounds, sometimes even smaller wahoo and baby tuna. And far down below, the gamefish lurk, looking upward, always on the move, waiting to come up like a rocket, seize their prey and head back down like a bolt of lightning. Flying fish, transparent butter-flies, jump off the top of the waves and fly for hundreds of yards. ItÂs their escape mechanism, but sometimes they seem to be doing it just because they can.Occasionally mako sharks and blue sharks slide by, hoping for a wounded tuna or dolphin, a sick blue marlin. Oceanic dolphin Â„ they look similar to the inshore bottlenose dolphin but have white dappling and are a bit smaller Â„sometimes show up in rolling schools of dozens at a time, sliding in close for a look at the strange visitors plowing up their turf.But what there is mostly is a lot of empty water, a mile deep and more. The smart billfish skippers know how to cut their odds of straining all through this open sea to find productive spots, using the ROFFÂs sea surface temperature charts and other electronics to help them home in. But itÂs still a matter of covering a whole lot of water.Some like pulling ÂKonaÂŽ heads, artificial lures that can be towed at speeds of 10 knots and more, allowing them to cover lots of water. The lures have a proven history of producing, particularly on marlin and wahoo. The strikes are violent beyond belief. The combination of boat speed and the speed of the fish is a true test of tackle until the skipper gets things under control and the angler gets buckled up to the rod.However, many serious bluewater fishers like either rigged dead bait, which skips from the outriggers in the wake, or live tuna that may weigh 7 to 10 pounds, rigged on a bridle behind a massive forged Â‡ hook. The process covers less water, but if the boat is in an area where bait and billfish are abundant, it can actually be more effec-tive than trolling an artificial because the fish are more likely to eat the real thing if they see it. Big game menagerieWaters off the Panhandle offer an impressive selection of big game fishes from April through October, with dol-phin, sailfish, blackfin tuna and wahoo showing up in May and early June, blue marlin in June and July, and white marlin in September and October. Swordfish are around all summer, but are caught almost entirely at night on baits drifted deep.The blue marlin is the premiere gamefish of the Gulf, and the Panhandle has Blue Water, Big FishTrolling for big game o the Florida PanhandleA fully-rigged CC like this one can handle long trips offshore for up to six anglers.

[SID RICE/CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] PANAMA CITY Â„ The smell of freshly cut grass brings back memories of summers spent running around my neighborhood as a kid climbing trees, chasing lizards, and hoping to get invited into someone's swimming pool. As an adult, that same smell triggers a feeling of accomplishment from finishing a physically demanding and strenuous chore. Usually this is followed by ice cold refreshments on the back porch to celebrate! Mowing seems so simple and you either love it or hate it, but you might not know how important it is to turfgrass health.

Another fish estimated to weigh over 1,000 pounds has been caught and released since. Several over 600 pounds have been weighed already this summer.Dolphin (mahi) are typically 15 to 20 pounds, but larger fish are caught regularly, while wahoo run anywhere from 20 pounds up. Sailfish are a lot lighter than they look, with fish of 40 to 75 pounds typical. What it costsGoing billfishing in your own boat is gener-ally not a good plan unless youÂre an experienced seaman with years of offshore operation under your belt. The specialized boats, gear and techniques required make this an expertÂs game, and youÂre by far better off hiring a good charter captain.It obviously costs a lot of money to run a charterboat capable of fishing far offshore where the billfishes dwell. The boats get 1 to 2 miles per gallon on plane, and may cover over 200 miles in a day, not counting all the fuel they burn at trolling speed for many hours. They also have pricey dock fees to pay, commercial insurance costs, boat and tackle mainte-nance and of course what may be an astronomical boat payment, plus wages for a trained mate, essen-tial for handling large gamefish.So itÂs not surprising that it costs a lot of money to book a billfish charter. An 8-hour charter is typi-cally around $1,200 for up to six anglers. Since it takes over an hour to get out to serious billfish country most of the time, youÂre better off booking 12 hours at $1,800 or so. Larger boats can carry more than six passengers if the captain has the right license, which allows splitting the ticket more ways.There are two types of boats that run out to big game waters. The classic sportfisherman, which is typically a cabin boat with air conditioning, galley and full head, starts at around 45 feet. These are usually powered by inboard diesels, and they typically run at speeds around 20 to 25 knots, which is to say about 25 to 28 mph. They are wide-beamed and highly seaworthy, and some old salts say the sound of the diesel engines on some of them have a peculiar capability to ÂraiseÂŽ fish or draw them to the baits.The second type of boat fishing offshore is the center console, and these days some are being built in lengths approaching 50 feet. These are powered by multiple outboards, recently up to four 400Âs, and they can be very fast, with speeds of 50 and even 60 mph in calm seas. The obvious advantage here is that you get out where the fish are a lot faster, so get more fish-ing hours, fewer running hours, for your charter fee.The disadvantage of the center console is that you are likely to get wet from spray or rain Â„ make that you are certain to get wet from spray or rain Â„ and there is no cabin and no AC to get away from the wind, sun, heat or rain, though there may be a small head in the console. Because they are open at the bow, they are less seaworthy than the express sportfisherman style. They are nearly always limited to six passengers, so you canÂt split the ticket quite as much as on the larger sportfish boats, but the charter fees are sometimes lower. They are narrower across the beam than the big sport-fish rigs, and have more vee to the bottom so they tend to roll more in beam seas. However, anglers who are used to fishing in open boats inshore or in freshwater sometimes find themselves more at home on this type of fish-ing platform. Selecting right charterThere are many levels of capability among charter skippers. Some guys are always Âlucky,ÂŽ and these are the guys you want to spend your money with. And, as is the case with much in life, being lucky is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity in offshore fishing.The ÂluckyÂŽ skipper will usually have a clean, well-maintained boat with quality tackle, the best baits and lures, and a well-trained, pleasant and efficient mate. HeÂs going to keep tabs on the fish movements through RoffÂs and other current monitoring systems, and heÂs going to be dialed in to the dock talk of who is seeing fish where and when.Fortunately, these days social media gives all of us a chance to grade our experiences, and to get an advance look at services we might want to use, as reported by those who have tried them.Of course, you canÂt let one bad review put you off an otherwise great skipper; some who hire a charter have completely unrealistic expectations. Complaining that you did not hook up with a ÂgranderÂŽ in your 8-hour charter is not kosher. Complaining that you left the dock an hour late, that the bait was rotten, the reels corroded and that the head had not been cleaned for a month, on the other hand, is useful information.Best bet is to select your top two or three skippers, then get them on the phone and discuss how they fish and what you can expect in a day on the water. The in-person conversation will tell you a lot more than many email and Facebook mes-sages, so that there are no surprises when you get to the docks.Last but not least, if you have doubts about whether offshore trolling is for you, it probably isnÂt. It takes a lot of patience and opti-mism, and there are more days that the billfish do not cooperate than when they do. You might want to opt for a grouper-snapper trip instead, where the action is fast and youÂre just about certain to get a nice bag of fillets to carry home with you.

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 8, 2018 D3sometimes no) Regardless of what the caller thinks is happening, there are a list of questions I ask to try get the whole pictureÂ„ just in case their theory is not on point. After doing this forsix years, I can tell you there are two things that playing a major role in the demise of turfgrass: improper watering and mowing. I could write 1,000 words about watering, but instead IÂm going to focus on mowing because I think most people miss the importance of doing it properly. Here are some quick tips: Â€ Mowing height is critical and differs between turf types. Mowing too short, Âscalping,ÂŽ can cause dieback in the lawn which creates a place for weeds to move in. Â€ Bahiagrass and St. Augustinegrass should be cut at 3.5to 4-inches tall Â€ Zoysiagrass 2to 2.5-inchestall Â€ Centipedegrass 1.5to 2-inches tall Â€ Bermudagrass 1to 1.5-inches tall Â€ How much is cut off per mowing event is important. Like all green plants, turf needs green tissue to make its food through a process called photosynthesis. If you remove more than of the leaf blade per cut, you are reducing the grassesÂ ability to support itself. In addition, if you donÂt bag you may create clipping drifts on top of the lawn which also blocks sunlight. Â€ A sharp blade is essential to reduce moisture loss. When you cut a blade of grass, it is going to lose some moisture. If the cut is ragged and splits the blade, you lose more moisture causing unneeded stress. Excessive wounding of grass also increases susceptibility to disease and insects. Â€ Mowing patterns and timing is important, too. Repeatedly mowing in the same direction can cause ruts and compaction in tire tracks. Cutting in the heat of the day increases moisture loss and, if the tires have gotten hot, you can actually burn the grass blades. Try to mow in the morning or evening and change directions each time you mow if possible. Â€ Keep mowers clean. Just like you can spread disease by not washing your hands properly, mowers can help to transport weed fragments and seeds and fungal disease. If you have a problem area in your yard, mow it last and be sure to blow off and/or rinse mower before putting it away. Be conscious of where your rinse water goes. Yard debris and clippings from mowers should never be washed down sewer drains! You might be wondering why I called this ÂHow to kill your lawn.ÂŽ Take a moment to think about your mowing practices. Most people I talk to are just trying to check a chore off their to-do list and it goes something like this: IÂm so busy that I only want to cut my grass once a week. I put my mower on the lowest setting and get it done as quickly as possible. Âƒ No, IÂve never sharpened or replaced by blades, and I donÂt clean my mowerÂƒ If this sounds like you, congratulationsÂ„ youÂve already figured out how to kill your grass.

MCCONNELLFrom Page D1 The picture this week I'd mentioned in the last article. This plant, 'Firebush' (Hamelia patens), is found on page 56 of a publication from the University of Florida. The booklet is titled 'The Florida Friendly Landscaping Guide to Plant Selection and Landscape Design.' It blooms year-round in central and south Florida. In Bay County, itwill get killed back to ground but will recover by June. The plant flowers best in full sun and is susceptible to pests. It can sometimes reach 8-12 feettall and 12-14 feetwide. It is one of our most heat-loving plants. It produces terminal clusters of bright reddish-orange tubular flowers. In the fall the leaves and stems turn red. On page 119 of a publication, 'Flowering Shrubs and Small Trees of the South,' you'll find additional information on this plant. Beetles, butter ies If you see sawdust coming out of your crepe myrtles, it may be due to the Asian ambrosia beetle. Plants heavily infested might not survive. Cut off the infected branches and consider spraying the tree with a systemic insecticide and spray once a year. Summer phlox is a plant beloved by butterflies and hummingbirds.

In 1889, The Wall Street Journal was Â“ rst published. In 1907, Florenz Ziegfeld staged his Â“ rst "Follies," on the roof of the New York Theater. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson received a tumultuous welcome in New York City after his return from the Versailles Peace Conference in France. In 1947, a New Mexico newspaper, the Roswell Daily Record, quoted ofÂ“ cials at Roswell Army Air Field as saying they had recovered a "Â” ying saucer" that crashed onto a ranch; ofÂ“ cials then said it was actually a weather balloon. (To this day, there are those who believe what fell to Earth was an alien spaceship carrying extra-terrestrial beings.) In 1950, President Harry S. Truman named Gen. Douglas MacArthur commander-inchief of United Nations forces in Korea. (Truman ended up sacking MacArthur for insubordination nine months later.) In 1965, Canadian PaciÂ“ c Air Lines Flight 21, a Douglas DC-6B, crashed in British Columbia after the tail separated from the fuselage; all 52 people on board were killed in what authorities said was the result of an apparent bombing. In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford announced he would seek a second term of ofÂ“ ce.

Some immigrant U.S. Army reservists and recruits who enlisted in the military with a promised path to citizenship are being abruptly discharged, the Associated Press has learned. Mark Anderson: "Its so sad how the media automatically comes to the defense of these folks without knowing the complete story. Background checks reveal disqualifying information. That doesnÂt matter to the horseshit media though. Keep pushing that agenda !" Jordan Maynard: "And you automatically attacking the story, to push an agenda is better, right?" Marie CM: "So the background check comes after the enrollment? Guess something is not working right in the military..." Alice Guay: "Mark I read the whole storythey are being discharged because the US military has not been able to perform the background checks, which have gotten far more intensive since Trump took ofÂ“ ce. Read the story before you comment and tarnish the reputation of others. From the article: 'Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly 110,000 members of the Armed Forces have gained citizenship by serving in the U.S. military, according to the Defense Department. Many service members recruited through the program have proven to be exemplary. In 2012, then-Sgt. Saral K. Shrestha, originally from Nepal, was named U.S. Army Soldier of the Year. In general, the immigrant recruits have been more costeffective, outperforming their fellow soldiers in the areas of attrition, performance, education and promotions, according to a recently released review by the RAND Corporation, a nonproÂ“ t research institution.'"Dennis Redding: "This is Trump, he has turned us into the true ugly American. You can see Trumps true nature, turn us against each other, divide us then give us to Russia!" Zac Thomas: "I've never heard of a combat situation where soldiers are asking each other if they're legal residents of the United States or not Sad, isn't there contracts involved? See ya in court." DEAR ABBY: After reading the letter from ÂDumbstruck in ChicagoÂŽ (April 24), whoÂs dating a recently divorced man who was unfaithful to his ex-wife through multiple affairs and one-night stands with prostitutes, I cannot stay silent. That man screams of being a sex addict. He needs the help of a certified sex addiction therapist before he wrecks another womanÂs life. ÂDumbstruckÂŽ should RUN Â„ not walk Â„ to the nearest S-Anon meeting. ItÂs a 12-step program for people who have been affected by another personÂs sexual behavior. These behaviors include infidelity by emotional or physical affairs, one-night stands with prostitutes, hanging out in strip clubs and porn addiction. S-Anon saved my sanity and gave me the courage to offer my husband of 30 years a choice Â„ recovery or divorce. Because he knew I was serious, he reluctantly went into Sexaholics Anonymous (SA) as well as therapy with a certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT) and has been sexually sober for five years. Our marriage is better today than I ever dreamed it would be. Sex addiction is a disease and needs to be recognized as the cause of ruining many marriages and tearing families apart. Please, Abby, suggest SA and S-Anon when you reply to people who write you about these issues. Â„ ANONYMOUS IN KENTUCKYDEAR ANONYMOUS: Thank you for writing. I have recommended the resources you mentioned in my column in the past. Sexaholics Anonymous and S-Anon have been in existence for more than 35 years and have helped many individuals stop unhealthy, destructive cycles of behavior. There are chapters nationwide. Readers, to find a meeting near you, visit sa.org or sanon.org. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

If you want it enough, you'll keep trying new ways until one clicks in. Probably, this has to do with striking the right deal with the one in charge. You are one good negotiation away from the prize. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ You've no social agenda except to have and be a good time. For you, this means getting to know people, being curious about them and bringing out the surprise in everyone you meet. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ You often feel upbeat about the way life is going for you, and then sometimes you don't. For instance, you'll have to talk yourself into optimism today. It will be the best talking you'll do. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ The main action of the day will come with a ticking timer. The good thing about not having much time to make a decision is that one way or the other, it gets made, sometimes by default. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Â„ Gossip is a poison spell. It's better not to talk about people or listen about people. Be a part of what's good and you'll be surrounded by the best people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Â„ You accept that there will be bad moments, and you're willing to work through whatever comes. With this mature approach to life, you'll cut out a lot of unnecessary noise inside your own head and get to work creating more good. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Â„ People say "no limits" as though the absence of rules makes for a better existence, when often the opposite is true. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Â„ The milk is placed in the back of the grocery. To get to it, you'll have to pass a number of enticements that aren't on your list. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Â„ Sing, laugh and dance and you will be happy. Oddly, it won't happen the other way around today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Â„ Are you under-conÂ“ dent? It's an advantage. The ultra-conÂ“ dent won't ask, "How am I doing?" And that's the question that will get you valuable feedback or endearment or both. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ There's so much goodness that will get set in motion when you reach out to the right person at the right time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Â„ You've gone long stretches without changing, and you've also had everything change overnight. This time, it will be something in the middle Â„ a slow growth situation.

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 8, 2018 E1 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW I have done the math. IÂm neither bragging nor complaining Â„ just stating the facts: including my initial meeting with my wife, IÂve gone on precisely SIX first dates in my entire lifetime. World-weary serial daters may be aghast at that limited number, but it does have its advantages. If anyone ever invents a time machine, maybe Âkill baby HitlerÂŽ and Âstop Lee Harvey OswaldÂŽ will still rank ahead of Âcarry a can of Mace for that geeky guy whose clothes donÂt matchÂŽ as urgent projects. IÂm taking stock of my past pursuit of maidens fair because Great BritainÂs Daily Mail Online website recently carried a story titled ÂWhat not to say on a first date: singles reveal the VERY candid revelations that sent potential partners running for the hills.ÂŽ Yes, single parenthood, criminal records, messy finances, sports rivalries, political prejudices, medical issues, lingering affection for an ex-lover, egotism, clinginess and other factors can end a romance before it even begins. Young or old, male or female, gay or straight, divorced/widowed or never married, the danger of bad first impressions remains. Although traditionalists steadfastly assert, ÂHonesty is the best policy,ÂŽ and although social-mediasavvy singles can find countless romantic pointers, there is still a danger of getting nervous or overconfident and divulging too much information. My inside sources have supplied a few of the dating bloopers that didnÂt make it into the Daily Mail article: Â€ ÂKids eat free? Here, I knew this bib and pacifier would come in handy someday. And fill your diaper with ketchup packetsÂƒÂŽ Â€ ÂI have a very positive outlook on the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. When life gives you restraining orders, make lemonade.ÂŽ Â€ ÂMy boss is such a clueless old tyrant. Hey, did you know you look an awful lot like the girl in the framed photo on his desk?ÂŽ Â€ ÂYouÂve written a book on 14th century Tibetan economics? Fascinating! Aw, do I have to READ this fortune cookie? CanÂt I just wait for the viral video to come out?ÂŽ Â€ ÂI firmly believe a woman can do anything a man can do Â„ and hopefully, both of them will be willing to do it for substandard wages.ÂŽ Â€ ÂPleased to meet you. IÂve been waiting a long time to tell you I think itÂs cute the way you misspelled the word ÂcreepyÂ in your diary.ÂŽ Â€ ÂWhere do I see myself in 10 years? *Chuckle* ThatÂs an easy one TYRADES!Have you made these blunders on a rst date? Danny TyreeMaybe I am getting old. I remember a time when TV and water were free and porn cost money. Now IÂm certainly not a Âgrammar naziÂŽ or a wordnerd, especially given the locker-room opinions I spew weekly (some would say ÂweaklyÂŽ). But people out there really need to focus on cleaning up their language, especially as it relates to overusing three words that are dumbing down the English language: Âlike,ÂŽ ÂliterallyÂŽ and Âamazing.ÂŽ For the 40-and-unders out there, you know how you use the word ÂlikeÂŽ in, like, every other sentence? DonÂt! When folks my age, those who can remember when Elton John was married to a woman, interview you for a job, the use of the word ÂlikeÂŽ as some filler crutch word is maddening to us. And when done in a high-pitched, nasal, Kardashian-Valley Girl way, itÂs akin to torture. It makes you seem vapid, imprecise and, quite frankly, stupid. This has gone on too long, and I have been meaning to say something about it. So, please, stop it. You know how you kids use the word Âamazing,ÂŽ like, all the time? DonÂt. Witnessing your childÂs birth is amazing. Your sandwich from Whole Foods is not Âamazing.ÂŽ Neither are the jeans Ashley just bought nor the top she wears with it. The synonyms in the dictionary for ÂamazingÂŽ include: astonishing, wonderment, astounding, stunning, shocking, breathtaking, spectacular, stupendous and phenomenal. AshleyÂs jeans have been mass-produced in a Chinese sweatshop for fifty years; there is nothing ÂamazingÂŽ about them. So please stop using ÂamazingÂŽ for anything mildly above average. People who are constantly ÂamazedÂŽ are low-IQ folks. The words ÂlikeÂŽ and ÂamazingÂŽ tend to be used by young women. For some reason, the men of this generation have taken to ending their sentences with a groan or a tapered-off grunt. IÂm not sure why that started happening, but it also is annoying. Please stop. Maybe it is a primal noise whereby modern-day men, neutered in college by the system, become wussified men seeking to reclaim some sort of caveman-like aura. Look guys, you like to grow beards now, but you cannot change a tire or drive a stick shift car. So stop it with the faux-macho/ Mumford and Sons persona. We ainÂt buying it. Lastly, you know how This is literally, like, amazing Ron Hart Amy Wax, a University of Pennsylvania law professor, has come under attack and scathing criticism because she dared criticize the schoolÂs racial preferences program. In an interview with Brown University economist Glenn Loury, discussing affirmative action, Wax mentioned how racial preferences hinder the ability of blacks to succeed academically by admitting them into schools at which they are in over their heads academically. At PennÂs seventh-ranked law school, Wax said, she doesnÂt think she ever has seen a black law student graduate in the top quarter of his class and ÂrarelyÂŽ is a black student in the top half. That got her into deep trouble. Penn students and faculty members charged her with racism. Penn Law School Dean Ted Ruger stripped Wax of her duty of teaching her mandatory first-year class on civil procedures. IÂm guessing PennÂs law faculty members know WaxÂs statement is true but think it was something best left unsaid in todayÂs racially charged climate. Ruger might have refuted WaxÂs claim. He surely has access to student records. He might have listed the number of black law students who were valedictorians and graduated in the top 10 percent of their class. He rightfully chose not to Â„ so as to not provide evidence for WaxÂs claim. One study suggests Wax is absolutely right about academic mismatch. In the early 1990s, the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) collected 27,000 law student records, representing nearly 90 percent of accredited law schools. The study found that after the first year, 51 percent of black law students ranked in the bottom tenth of their class, compared with 5 percent of white students. Two-thirds of black students were in the bottom fifth of their class. Only 10 percent of blacks were in the top half of their class. Twenty-two percent of black students in the LSAC database hadnÂt passed the bar exam after five attempts, compared with 3 percent of white test takers. The University of Pennsylvania controversy highlights something very important to black people and the nation. The K-12 education that most blacks receive is grossly fraudulent. Most predominately black schools are costly yet grossly inferior to predominately white schools and are in cities where blacks hold considerable political power, such as Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago and Philadelphia. In these and other cities, itÂs not uncommon for there to be high schools where less than 17 percent of the students test proficient in reading, and often not a single student in such schools tests proficient in math. Nonetheless, many receive high school diplomas. ItÂs inconceivable that college administrators are unaware they are admitting students who are ill-prepared and have difficulty performing at the college level. ThereÂs no way four or five years of college can repair the academic damage done to black students throughout their 13 years of primary and secondary education. Partial proof is black student performance at the postgraduate level, such as in law school. Their disadvantage is exaggerated when they are admitted to prestigious Ivy League law schools. ItÂs as if you asked a trainer to teach you how to box and the first fight he got you was with Anthony Joshua or Floyd Mayweather. You might have the potential to ultimately be a good boxer, but youÂre going to get your brains beaten out before you learn how to bob and weave. The fact that black students have low class rankings at such highpowered law schools as Penn doesnÂt mean they are stupid or uneducable. It means theyÂve been admitted to schools where they are in over their heads. To admit these students makes white liberals feel better about themselves. It also helps support the jobs of black and white university personnel in charge of diversity and inclusion. The question for black people is whether we can afford to have the best of our youngsters demeaned, degraded and possibly destroyed to make white liberals feel better about themselves. You might ask, ÂWilliams, without affirmative action, what would the University of Pennsylvania Law School do about diversity and inclusion?ÂŽ IÂd say thatÂs PennÂs problem. Walter E.

** E2 Sunday, July 8, 2018 | The News Herald VIEWPOINTS It's a big deal, as a journalist, to work for The New York Times, The Washington Post or The Wall Street Journal. Wielding the press badge of one of the biggest newspapers in the country is a fast-track pass onto talk shows, including ones that cover the practice of journalism. Even as just a contributor, your work is likelier to be cited in morning news roundups and quoted on shows. It's as if nothing worth mentioning happens unless it's noticed by journalists in New York or Washington. The rest of America knows this isn't so, as do the journalists who cover it. Working for regional and smaller newspapers is a big deal, too, but for different reasons. These newsrooms are the heart of their communities, with journalists tracking the pulse of everyday events. With dwindling resources and shrinking staffs, these journalists work harder than ever to reflect the depth and breadth of life unfolding around them. It's not that national news isn't important to them or to their readers. It's just that the rest of life matters, too: The local garden club's 61st annual May Day Basket Competition and the outpouring of support for the softball coach who has cancer. The woman who runs a ranch for abandoned pets and farm animals and the firefighters' annual Santa Run to raise money for children who won't have a Christmas without it. The college teen on scholarship trying to decide whether she wants to be a doctor and the annual community theater guide for performances around town. This is the lifeblood of a community, the stories of its people. And without the support of that community, through digital and print subscriptions, such newspapers couldn't exist. Never has it been more important to subscribe. If that's you, thank you. Last week, one of these community newspapers experienced an unthinkable but all-too-easily imaginable tragedy in these volatile times. An angry reader who had made no secret of his hatred for the Capital Gazette opened fire in its newsroom, killing four of its journalists Â„ Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, John McNamara and Wendi Winters Â„ and sales assistant Rebecca Smith. Two others were injured. Everyone who survived will never be the same. This happened in a newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland, but it has rocked journalists around the country. Like countless others, I kept refreshing links to the breaking news story, waiting for the names. Once we knew who had died, the grieving began Â„ among those who personally knew and loved the victims and among the rest of us who knew them by their calling. Anyone who has worked in a newsroom has most likely imagined how vulnerable they were when the shooting began. Many of us have quickly reached the anger stage of grief. Throughout his presidency, Donald Trump has mocked journalists, encouraging crowds to taunt them at his rallies. At one such rally three days before the Capital Gazette shooting, he again called us "the enemy of the people." He has not apologized for that. Tom Marquardt is the former editor and publisher of Capital Gazette Communications. In an op-ed published in The Washington Post the day after the attack, he wrote: "President Trump isn't responsible for the Annapolis tragedy any more than the Second Amendment is. But he and his supporters seem to have forgotten that the Constitution that gives them the right to bear arms is the same document that safeguards the right to free speech. You cannot honor one amendment without honoring the other 26. Those dedicated Capital Gazette journalists, like others before them and surely others after them, fought for free speech at all costs, including death. It's not prayers their survivors and co-workers need; it's respect for what reporters and editors do every day. "In my 42 years of journalism, I never knew a reporter whose goal was anything more than reporting unvarnished facts, no matter what the consequences. They wore that policy like a badge of honor. They put their names on the stories they wrote and added contact information. Reporters at small newspapers, such as Capital Gazette, were open to visitors, many of whom came with grudges." Unlike a lot of national journalists, local reporters and columnists want you to find them. They want to hear what you have to say. In an increasingly threatening environment, they have become even more transparent, more recognizable. The Capital Gazette's Wendi Winters was like that, so interested in her community, so invested in the stories of other people's lives. That list of local stories I mentioned earlier? She wrote every one of them. Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and professional in residence at Kent State University's school of journalism. She is the author of two books, including "...and His Lovely Wife," which chronicled the successful race of her husband, Sherrod Brown, for the U.S. Senate.After the attack in Annapolis, the anger stage of grief Connie Schultz Â„ because the mother ship is coming to fetch me in NINE years.ÂŽ Â€ ÂIÂm glad you brought me to this heavy metal concert, but I canÂt hear the music over the ticking of my BIOLOGICAL CLOCK.ÂŽ Â€ ÂIÂm not worried about rock climbing on our first date.

TYREEFrom Page E1both men and women use the word ÂliterallyÂŽ way too often? Please stop. ÂLiterallyÂŽ is a crutch word used when you are trying to bring emphasis to an otherwise boring story about yourself. I heard a guy say the other day, ÂIt was literally raining cats and dogs.ÂŽ Now unless there was an explosion at the humane shelter, this cannot ÂliterallyÂŽ be true. For ÂliterallyÂŽ to work, what you are saying must have a figurative meaning that is actually happening. That does not occur every other sentence when you are telling a story about you and your roommate Skeeter going to a concert. If you use it too much, you can join a literary society: Americans Who Figuratively Use Literally, or A.W.F.U.L. Please do not let the words Âlike,ÂŽ ÂamazingÂŽ and ÂliterallyÂŽ get used as often and in the manner they are. It is just plain annoying. I blame these expensive, non-judgmental colleges we have which have been dispensing terrible educations for decades. To do well at these liberal colleges or to eat in a Washington D.C. restaurant today, you have to be a Liberal. Democrats have not made going to college so difficult or denied so many access to restaurants since the 1960s.

** The News Herald | Sunday, July 8, 2018 E3 VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEWOn Wednesday, this nation celebrated an act of political radicalism that proved to be, yes, revolutionary. On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress approved a Declaration of Independence. It was not a governing document, nor did it compel England to renounce its claim to the 13 American colonies. Instead, it was an exposition of first principles followed by a recitation of grievances against the British crown, all employed to justify the colonialistsÂ revolt. Our independence was not secured until five years later, after numerous military battles that climaxed with the British defeat at Yorktown and concluded with the Treaty of Paris that recognized the United States. However, we celebrate the Fourth because the Declaration represents the ideals on which this nation was founded. The documentÂs themes of natural law, individual freedom and self-government are what make it timeless: Â€ All men are created equal. Â€ We are born with natural, God-given rights that cannot be abrogated by man-made government. Â€ When government tramples on those rights the people have a responsibility to change it or end it. Thus does government earn its legitimacy only from the consent of the governed. How those principles are applied remains an everevolving subject of debate. Our national politics are more divisive than they have been in generations, and that is reflected in our culture. Civil discourse has eroded as Americans retreat into tribalism, often displaying their political preferences in their lifestyle choices Â„ where they shop and eat, what they read and watch. Although freedom often is viewed as something to be protected from outside threats Â„ be they from a British empire or terrorist organizations operating overseas Â„ it also can be eroded from within. Increasingly, our First Amendment freedoms of speech and press are under attack from the left and the right in attempts to sow distrust and silence opponents. Spirited debate using good-faith arguments to advocate for preferred policy prescriptions is essential to the health of the republic. Demonizing political foes and poisoning the marketplace of ideas pave the way for national decline. Among AmericaÂs greatest strengths are its blessings of individual freedom. Yet we cannot lose sight of the fact that these separate threads are to be woven together into a cohesive tapestry. Right now, it is fraying at the edges and requires repair. Author Isabel Paterson, in her seminal work ÂGod of the Machine,ÂŽ wrote that the establishment of the United States Âwas the first time a nation was ever founded on reasoned political principles, proceeding from the axiom that manÂs birthright is freedom. Whoever is fortunate enough to be an American citizen came into the greatest inheritance man has ever enjoyed.ÂŽ Do not squander that legacy. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Daytona Beach News-Journal.OUR VIEWA legacy of freedomI pretty much support the death penalty but only when the crime is especially heinous and guilt of the perpetrator is certain beyond almost any kind of doubt. ThatÂs why IÂm for capital punishment for those who have caused so much pain and suffering in America, who have disrupted so many innocent lives. Yes, IÂm talking about the slugs responsible for robocalls. I donÂt know about you but my phones Â„ landline and cell Â„ are ringing nonstop with warnings about my computer, with offers for me to buy medical insurance, with deals to lower the interest rate on my credit cards, with giveaways for free trips to exotic places and much, much more. I even got a call Â„ from a robotic voice Â„ that said the IRS was about to file criminal charges against me and I needed to call the number they gave me Â„ immediately. I told a few friends. Guess what? They got the same call. Sometimes the caller is a real human being. A lot of times the caller is a guy named Kenny or Billy Â„ from Mumbai. Other times theyÂre recordings that sound eerily like a real person. ÂHi, this is Tina, can you hear me?ÂŽ When you answer it prompts the recording to continue with the pitch. Just between us, when ÂTinaÂŽ asks if I can hear her, I ask Tina a question that we canÂt repeat in this space. According to The New York Times, as bad as the problem has been, itÂs getting worse. ÂThough automated calls have long plagued consumers, the volume has skyrocketed in recent years, reaching an estimated 3.4 billion in April. ... ThatÂs an increase of almost 900 million a month compared with a year ago.ÂŽ Congress has noticed the problem and has recently either passed or taken up legislation to deal with it. IÂm not optimistic that a law will do much good. Like many of you, IÂm on the National Do Not Call Registry. It means absolutely nothing to the weasels who disrupt my day. They call me anyway Â„ when I wake up, when IÂm working at my desk, when IÂm reading a newspaper or watching TV, when IÂm on my treadmill, and mostly when IÂm trying to eat dinner. But these calls are a lot more than simply annoying. According to the Times, Eric Schneiderman, the New York Attorney General Â„ until he resigned amid accusations of assault against four women Â„ warned consumers Âabout a scheme targeting people with Chinese last names, in which the caller purports to be from the Chinese Consulate and demands money. Since December, the New York Police Department said, 21 Chinese immigrants had lost a total of $2.5 million.ÂŽ Not all calls are scams, of course. But all of them, as far as IÂm concerned, are annoying, an invasion of my privacy. So thereÂs only one solution. The one I mentioned at the top of this column? Harsh? WhatÂs your point?

CLASSIFIEDSThe News Herald | Sunday, July 8, 2018 F F 5 5 NORMAL SERVICE VS. SEVERE SERVICE James Morrisjames@masterautotech.comTHE AUTOADVISORNF-1183226 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.My 2008 Mini Cooper has only 35,000 miles on it and my shop is suggesting that I change the all the uids from the brake uid to the transmission uid. I looked in the ownerÂs manual it says that the transmission uid is good for 100,000 miles under normal driving conditions. I donÂt take trips in my car and only use it around town to run errands. Is my shop asking me to do unneeded services? MillieMillie what you consider Ânormal drivingÂŽ is really Âsevere serviceÂŽ type driving. This type driving means that normal service intervals are cut in half, along with the mileage intervals or whichever comes rst. Normal service interval for a transmission service on your Mini Cooper is 10 years or 100,000 miles. Since your type driving is considered harder on the mechanics of a vehicle, your service interval will be cut in half to 5 years or 50,000 miles or whichever comes rst. Your Mini Cooper is 8 years old with 35,000 miles that has only been driven in stop and go traf c around town. This is a lot harder on a vehicle than most people realize. I think your shop is looking out for your best interests by helping keep your expensive CVT transmission on the road, working as it should. According to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) all uids (besides engine oil) in a car that has been driven in a ÂSevere ServiceÂŽ conditions, it is best to replace every two years or thirty thousand miles. Automotive Fluids MAY become oxidized and their protective additives may drop out of suspension and become ineffective, causing severe damage to mechanical components. I have copied and pasted Mini coopers notes on severe service below to help you decide what is best for your car. A good rule of thumb about performing services on your vehicle: ÂChanging uids in your car is cheaper than replacing metal partsÂŽ. Mini Cooper Notes on ÂSevere ServiceÂŽ Since maintenance intervals are affected by climate and operating conditions, customers who operate their vehicles under more arduous conditions, or whoÂs driving habits are markedly different from the ÂAverageÂŽ motorist should have a more personalized service program developed for them. This will ensure the continued safe and reliable operation of their vehicle. Because this manufacturer does not specify a Severe Service Interval, the determination of the proper maintenance interval should be left to the good judgment of the vehicle owner and the advice of an authorized service center. Conditions that will change the frequency and composition of Normal Service: Â€ Operating in dusty, wet or muddy terrain Â€ Frequent driving in dense city stop and go traf c Â€ Repeated short trip operation without suf cient engine warm up Â€ Ambient temperature extremes Â€ Operating in mountainous/high altitude areas Â€ Trailer towing NOTE: Low mileage vehicles should be maintained at least once a year.
