Ropes on either side of the Shirah beach access near his house designated nearly all the beach behind the ropes as Âprivate.ÂŽ Between the ropes, the access was only about 60 feet wide.He said he was forced to come to the small sliver of beach access before sunrise every morning to reserve a spot for his family before people were Âpacked like sardinesÂŽ in the one small section of public beach.ÂYouÂre down here for the summer paying six grand a week and you learn thereÂs no space for you to bring your kids to the beach?ÂŽ he asked as he screwed an umbrella Destin draws line in sand EditorÂs NoteThis article is part of a two part series being done by the Northwest Florida Daily News, a New Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.Panama City Beach engagement saved a er beachgoer nds lost ringBy Tyra L.

ÂI put the ring in a Ziploc bag, and me and some friends went to practice how we were going to (propose). In the process, a wave came up and hit me. It tumbled me.ÂŽGone in the waves was Farrar's custom engagement ring.ÂI never thought it would be found,ÂŽ he said.Or so he thought. Further down the beach, the ring Farrar bought for his girlfriend Cassandra Arn, along with his license and bank card, washed up under the feet of Sandy Osborn who was on a trip with friends.ÂWe all had beach chairs sitting at the edge of the water,ÂŽ Osborn said.

George Washington created the Order of the Purple Heart, a decoration to recognize merit in enlisted men and noncommissioned ofÂ“ cers. In 1789, the U.S. Department of War was established by Congress. In 1882, the famous feud between the HatÂ“ elds of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky erupted into fullscale violence. In 1942, U.S. and other allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the Â“ rst major allied offensive in the PaciÂ“ c during World War II. (Japanese forces abandoned the island the following February.) In 1959, the United States launched the Explorer 6 satellite, which sent back images of Earth. In 1989, a plane carrying U.S. Rep. Mickey Leland, D-Texas, and 14 others disappeared over Ethiopia. (The wreckage of the plane was found six days later; there were no survivors.) In 1990, President George H.W. Bush ordered U.S. troops and warplanes to Saudi Arabia to guard the oil-rich desert kingdom against a possible invasion by Iraq. In 1998, terrorist bombs at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed 224 people, including 12 Americans.

[AP FILE]By Andi Jatmiko and Stephen WrightThe Associated PressSENGGIGI, Indonesia Â„ Thousands left homeless by a powerful quake that ruptured roads and flattened buildings on the Indonesian tourist island of Lombok sheltered Monday night in makeshift tents as authorities said rescuers hadnÂt yet reached all devastated areas and expect the toll of 98 dead to climb.It was the second deadly quake in a week to hit Lombok, a less-developed island compared with its more famous neighbor Bali, where the strong tremors caused panic and dam-aged buildings.A July 29 quake killed 16 people and damaged hundreds of houses on Lombok, some of which collapsed in Sunday eveningÂs quake, measured at magnitude 7.0 by Indonesian authorities and 6.9 by the U.S. Geological Survey.Damage was ÂmassiveÂŽ in mountainous northern Lombok, where the quake was centered, said National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. In several districts, more than half the homes were destroyed or severely damaged.A large mosque collapsed on worshippers in northern Lom-bokÂs Lading-Lading village, and rescuers used a backhoe to search the debris. The number of victims was unknown.Some areas still hadnÂt been reached 24 hours after the quake because of collapsed bridges, blocked and ruptured roads and the loss of power and communications.Nugroho said the death toll had risen to 98 and warned it will continue to increase. All but two of were killed on Lombok; the others died on Bali.More than 230 people were seriously injured. Thousands of homes and buildings were damaged and those displaced camped wherever they could Â„ in sports fields and on roadsides, cobbling together ramshackle shelters and building campfires for warmth.Sahril, who uses one name, said he escaped his collapsing house in North Lombok with his immediate family, but his older brother is buried in his flattened home in the village of Cubek.ÂHe was serving customers when the earthquake happened. The customers managed to escape, but he himself didnÂt,ÂŽ Sahril said. ÂHis two-story house collapsed and buried him. He had no chance to scream (for) help.ÂŽThe quake struck at a shal-low depth of 10.5 kilometers (6 miles). Shallow quakes tend to cause more damage than deeper ones.ÂWe were sitting there having dinner at about 7 oÂclock last night, we just felt a really big sort of shaking and the lights went off and everyone just ran,ÂŽ Australian tourist Kim Liebelt said as he waited with other travelers for a flight out at LombokÂs international airport.ÂAnd then the roof started falling down on us, rocks and rubble and then just everyone running to get away,ÂŽ he said.Videos showed screaming people running in panic from a shopping mall and a neighborhood in Bali where parked vehicles swayed. On Lombok, soldiers and other rescuers carried the injured on stretch-ers and carpets. Many were treated outdoors because hos-pitals were damaged.ÂPeople panicked and scat-tered on the streets, and buildings and houses that had been damaged by the previous earthquake had become more damaged and collapsed,ÂŽ Nugroho said.The quake triggered a tsu-nami warning, and frightened people rushed from their homes to higher ground, par-ticularly in North Lombok and Mataram, the capital of West Nusa Tenggara province. The warning was lifted after only small waves were recorded.ÂWhen it happened, we stood with residents in the middle of the street and watched houses collapse around us,ÂŽ said Yustrianda Sirio, supervisor of a group of university students from Java doing a community ser-vice program in East Lombok. ÂMany of us screamed hysterically.ÂŽHe said the group already had been staying in tents after the July 29 quake, but now officials told them to return to Java.ÂWe really want to stay here to help the villagers,ÂŽ he said.On Gili Trawangan, one of three popular vacation islands near Lombok, thousands of tourists and residents spent Sunday night on a hill because of tsunami fears, said British visitor Saffron Amis.ÂThere was a lot of scream-ing and crying, particularly from the locals,ÂŽ said Amis, from Brighton. ÂWe spoke to a lot of them and they were panicking about their family in Lombok. It was just a lot of panic because no one knew what was happening.ÂŽ Thousands displaced by deadly Indonesian quakeAn elderly man rests in a makeshift hospital on Monday after surviving a major earthquake in Kayangan on Lombok Island, Indonesia. Indonesian authorities said Monday that rescuers still havenÂt reached some devastated parts of the tourist island of Lombok after the powerful earthquake Â” attened houses and toppled bridges, killing a large number of people and shaking neighboring Bali.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, August 7, 2018 A5
** A6 Tuesday, August 7, 2018 | The News Heraldinto the sand. ÂI think weÂre going to choose another place to vacation next year.ÂŽLoÂs dilemma is one of many faced by tourists who visited Destin this summer only to learn that the vast majority of the cityÂs six miles of beach are private, marked off with ropes and no trespassing signs, and guarded closely by territorial beach chair vendors.WhatÂs more, large swaths of DestinÂs beaches that should be open to the public due to past restoration projects funded by county and state money, have been unlawfully marked as Âprivate beachÂŽ for years Â„ and confusion on the part of city and Okaloosa County officials, as well as law enforcement, has created a culture of apathy that has further muddled the issue. Shrinking public beach accessesOkaloosa CountyÂs beaches are heavily marketed by the Tourism Development Depart-ment as sand thatÂs Âshockingly fineÂŽ and Âso clean that it squeaks underfoot.ÂŽ The water, the TDDÂs website says, are a Âbrilliant emerald-greenÂŽ color that Âprovides such a contrast with the blue sky and the white sand below.ÂŽWhatÂs more, the TDDÂs website says, is that Âthe most amazing thing about our beaches is that the very best belong to you, the beach-loving public.ÂŽBut more and more tourists who visit the Emerald Coast, especially Destin, are learning thatÂs not entirely true.Almost all of DestinÂs six miles of beach are ÂprivateÂŽ Â„ marked as belonging to the private homeowners and tow-ering condo associations that line the beachfront roads on either side of Henderson Beach State Park. Ropes and Âno tres-passing signsÂŽ begin on either side of the cityÂs 13 public beach accesses, limiting the spaces accessible to only a few dozen feet at best.According to Daily News measurements, taken both with measuring tape at the public beach accesses and by analyz-ing property appraiser records, only about 1.4 miles of DestinÂs beach is open to the public. That includes Henderson Beach State Park, which divides Destin down the middle and has a little over 4,700 feet of public beach. The park charges beachgoers $6 per car to visit.Nine of the cityÂs public beach accesses, dispersed throughout the Crystal Beach and Scenic Highway 98 areas, have a com-bined total of less than a half mile of public beach. Some of the smallest beach accesses in the city are Tarpon Street, the Shores at Crystal Beach and Pompano Street, which have roughly 11.5, 40 and 50 feet of public sand, respectively.On the west side of Hender-son Beach State Park, there are only two public beach accesses (not including the Norriego Point and Holiday Isle accesses). The Calhoun and Silver Shells/June White Decker accesses, near the Back Porch restaurant, have a com-bined 138 feet of public beach.Visitors who donÂt stay in a Gulf-front condo or neighborhood that has a roped-off private beach are directed to any one of the cityÂs public beach accesses. That sounds like a simple solution in theory, but in practice it means that many of the millions of visitors who come to Destin and donÂt stay in beachfront property have almost no access to the beach. And those visiting the Crystal Beach accesses must contend with extremely limited parking Â„ most of the accesses only have seven to 12 spaces. Some have no parking at all. Beach restoration projects But are the so-called Âpri-vateÂŽ beaches actually, legally, private? During two major beach res-toration projects in Destin in the past 20 years, officials deter-mined an Erosion Control Line that runs along the portions of the beach that were restored and maintained using taxpayer money.The ECL line is, essentially, where the Mean High Water Line was located before the beach was restored. In some places, like on Holiday Isle and in Crystal Beach, the water was lapping up at property ownersÂ front doors. The taxpayerfunded restoration projects moved the Mean High Water Line back several feet in some areas, creating wide swaths of beach in front of the properties.Those large swathsÂ„those south of the ECL lineÂ„are, by law, public beach, according to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.ÂWhere beaches have an established ECL, everything seaward of that line is property of the state, or sovereign land,ÂŽ Dee Ann Miller, a spokeswoman for the DEP, said in an email to the Daily News. ÂWhere there is not an ECL, the MHWL is the boundary, unless the upland property ownerÂs deed states otherwise. Each upland prop-erty owner deed can potentially vary on where it states they own down to the MHWL or some other property line location.ÂŽMiller also said that before all beach erosion control projects, an ECL Âmust be established along the shoreline to define the property boundary between sovereign submerged land and upland ownership.ÂŽ Public money, private beaches?Two major beach restoration projects that took place in Destin in 2006-2007 and 2012-2013 altered the landscape of many of the cityÂs beaches and provided much-needed expansions to sand that had been critically eroded during the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons.The first beach renourishment project was a joint venture with Walton County that restored about seven miles of beach, including two miles of beach in Destin from Henderson Beach State Park to the Walton County line and the remaining five miles of beach in Walton County from the county line to Topsail Hill State Park.The project cost a total of more than $27 million, with DestinÂs share clocking in at $9.8 million. The cost was split between the state of Florida and the then-Tourist Development Council (now the Tourist Development Depart-ment), both of which kicked in $4.9 million. The second renourishment project took place on DestinÂs Holiday Isle in January and February 2013. About 1.7 miles of beach was restored, with a 2,600-foot gap in between due to legal challenges by beachfront property owners of single-family homes and condominiums.The Holiday Isle project cost almost $8 million, with the TDC contributing about $6.7 million. The remaining money was raised through the countyÂs Municipal Services Benefit Unit, which was cre-ated in 2009 to cover the cost of beach restoration. Beachfront property owners bore the great-est burden of the MSBU fees, paying $150 to $200 annually, while inland property owners paid about $55 a year.Since 2000, the city of Destin has kicked in about $450,000 in taxpayer money on various beach restoration projects, including things like cost-sharing and post-project monitoring, according to Doug Rainer, the cityÂs public infor-mation manager. During both projects in 2007 and 2013, engineers used surveying to establish an Erosion Control Line. The ECL runs essentially unobstructed from the East Pass to the Walton County line, with the 2,600foot gap on Holiday Isle and a 4,700-foot gap at Henderson Beach State Park.The Okaloosa County TDD has records that dictate where the ECL line is located, thus making it clear where the public beach begins and the private beach ends. But TDD officials claim that the line would be impossible to determine with-out a new official survey.ÂThe Erosion Control Line (ECL) is based on an elevation, not a fixed line in the sand,ÂŽ the TDD said in an email to the Daily News. ÂAs a result, the location of the ECL may seem to ÂmoveÂ as the beach erodes or accretes, but it does not. It is important to note that you canÂt just walk out on the beach and locate the ECL unless you survey for that elevation.ÂŽBut the DEP says the ECL is clearly a Âfixed boundary.ÂŽÂAs private property owners, coastal property owners are afforded some rights as all other owners are; however, they cannot impede public access to sovereign lands or established public access routes,ÂŽ Miller, the DEP spokeswoman, said in her email to the Daily News. ÂAll of the operative ECL lines are recorded in the local County Clerk of Circuit Court, and DEP has electronic copies of those files in our OCULUS system.ÂŽShe added that the DEP Âdoes not get involved with land rights disputes or physically marking private property linesÂŽ but they Âdo work with private survey-ors on projects such as those marking private lands near an ECL or MHWL to correctly identify property lines.ÂŽGreg Kisela, who was DestinÂs city manager during the 2007 project and currently is the deputy county administra-tor for Okaloosa County, said the ECL line is a clear, fixed line, although itÂs difficult to deter-mine without a survey.ÂSome of that land south of the ECL is under water now, and some of it is still dry sand,ÂŽ he said.Kisela said nobody marked the ECL line with stakes, signage or other markings when it was first established in 2007, which would have made prop-erty lines explicitly clear. But city and county officials do have devices they can take to the beach to determine where the ECL is within about one foot.About two years ago, he said, Âusing basically a GPS device, we were able to determine around 30 to 40 percent of the ECL beach was still dry,ÂŽ he said.But Taylor Engineering, the firm that the county contracted to execute both the 2007 and 2013 restoration projects, said in 2015 that the Holiday Isle project contained about 80 per-cent of its initial sand volume, and the Crystal Beach project contained between 94 to 99 percent of its original volume. ÂWe wonÂt make them moveÂ Since the ECL line was never clearly physically marked, the Okaloosa County SheriffÂs Office uses a Â20-foot ruleÂŽ when enforcing trespassing on Destin beaches.Sgt. Jason Fulghum said dep-uties will not trespass anybody who puts their things within 20 feet of the waterÂs edge, even if itÂs behind Âno trespassingÂŽ signs and ropes or in front of beach chair vendors.ÂItÂs a general order that we have. WeÂre not saying that the beach is public beach, weÂre saying that weÂre not going to enforce trespassing laws in that area because itÂs just not clear whether or not itÂs public beach,ÂŽ Fulghum said. ÂThere are people who say itÂs public, there are people who say itÂs private, and until thereÂs a definitive answer weÂre not going to enforce trespassing.ÂŽFulghum said he had a large volume of trespassing calls Âseveral years agoÂŽ but since then it has died down. HeÂs seen an uptick in calls since the Walton County custom-ary use kerfuffle. House Bill 631 took effect July 1 and sent OkaloosaÂs neighboring county into turmoil.ÂIf someone is set up any-where on the beach in Destin and theyÂre within 20 feet of the waterÂs edge, we will not arrest them for trespass-ing and we wonÂt make them move,ÂŽ Fulghum said. BEACHESFrom Page A1A rope marks a boundary between public and private beach areas near The Back Porch restaurant in Last month, Rooker Prop-erties, an Atlanta-based company that had purchased land in downtown Panama City, emerged as GSAÂs top option in the bid process to replace the current Federal District Courthouse at 30 W. Gov-ernment St. But only days later a prob-lem with the taxes caused that deal to fall through, meaning once again GSA had to choose between a set of bids that included, at least, a proposal from Bay County and one from Marianna. ItÂs possible there are more options.Majka would not say Monday if the update means GSA has selected the countyÂs proposal over the option set forth by Marianna.In 2017, the Federal Dis-trict Court announced it would not renew the lease on the current lease current federal courthouse, 30 W. Government St., because of the problems with the building and threatened to shut down the Panama City division. The decision would have forced locals to travel to either Pensacola or Tallahassee for federal court appointments and potentially cost the region 27 direct jobs and 100 indirect ones.Since then, a local taskforce of which the county is a part of, has been working to keep the courthouse in Panama City. The bid package the county submitted would, if chosen, require a building swap.Ultimately,the countyÂs plancalls forthe current Juvenile Justice Facility on 11th Streetto become the Federal Courthouse. Using the money from the lease, the county would pay down the debt on the juvenile facility and build a new juvenile courthouse on the same campus as the Bay County Courthouse.While the new juvenile courthouse is being built, the personnel from the 11th Street facility will tempo-rarily move into the former Panama City Hall, 9 Har-rison Ave., which would be renovated.The county commission meeting will be at 9 a.m., at the Bay County Govern-ment Building, 840 West 11th St. COUNTYFrom Page A1later it went back under my chair. I saw his license [in the bag]. At first, I didnÂt see the ring.ÂŽThe Florence, Alabama res-ident said she decided to hold on to the bag and its contents until she could call the bank to properly locate Farrar, who was visiting the beach to celebrate his birthday by proposing. For the 45 minutes the ring was missing, Farrar said he and his friends went back in the water to search for it. Some of his friends set out across the beach to ask beach-goers if they had found a the bag. They reached Osborn, who happily produced the bag with the ring in it.ÂIÂm super thankful,ÂŽ Farrar said. ÂIt gave me faith in humanity. There still are some decent people out here. I appreciate her honesty.ÂŽOsborn said sheÂs thankful she was at the right place at the right time.Farrar said he spent months thinking of creative ways to propose to his girlfriend of about four years. Before the ring took a dip into the ocean, he planned on putting a pro-posal message-in-a-bottle for her to find. After the ring disappeared, he instead decided not to risk losing it again and went right over to Arn, who was lounging in a beach chair, and proposed. She said yes.Nearby, Osborn cried during the proposal. She and the happy couple, she said, have become instant friends.Â(Cassandra) said: ÂYouÂre invited to the wedding,ÂŽ Osborn said.

The Associated PressThe Associated PressPURCHASE, N.Y. Â„ With Indra Nooyi exiting PepsiCo as its longtime chief executive, the circle of CEOs in the Fortune 500 is losing one of its highest profile women.Nooyi, who was born in India, is a rarity on Wall Street as a woman and a minority leading a Fortune 500 company. She oversaw PepsiCo during a turbulent time in the industry that has forced food giants including Coca-Cola Co., Campbell Soup Co. and Oreo maker Mondelez International Inc. to adapt to changing tastes. All those companies changed CEOs in roughly the last year.At PepsiCo Inc., Nooyi stressed the companyÂs move toward Âgood for youÂŽ options that people donÂt feel as guilty eating, such as Baked LayÂs potato chips and Naked juices made of fruits and vegetables. The company has not abandoned sugary sodas or more indulgent snacks. Nooyi, 62, has been with PepsiCo Inc. for 24 years and held the top job for 12.Another PepsiCo veteran, Ramon Laguarta, will take over as chief executive in October, the company said Monday. Nooyi will remain as chairwoman until early next year. ÂGrowing up in India, I never imagined IÂd have the opportunity to lead such an extraordinary company,ÂŽ Nooyi said in a statement Monday.Nooyi began her career in India with positions at companies including Johnson & Johnson. She later attended the Yale School of Management.The percentage of female CEOs in the Fortune 500 has climbed slowly over the years and broke the 5 percent mark just last year, according to Catalyst, which promotes women in the workplace. The Fortune 500 includes the largest companies based on revenue.In the S&P 500, an index that includes com-panies from different sectors, there are currently 25 female CEOs including Nooyi, accord-ing to Catalyst. That also represents around 5 percent of CEOs.Within the food indus-try, Nooyi is the latest female chief executive to step down, following Mondelez CEO Irene Rosenfeld last year and Campbell CEO Denise Morrison earlier this year. The packaged food industry has been under-going major changes through acquisitions, spinoffs and mergers as big companies look for ways to revive slumping revenues.Nooyi, who took over as chief executive of PepsiCo in 2006, has resisted calls by an activist investor to spin off the companyÂs beverage business, which has struggled in North America, from its better-performing Frito-Lay snacks business. PepsiCoÂs latest female CEO to exitBy Sarah Skidmore and Alexandra OlsonThe Associated PressLuis Vazquez and his girlfriend were down to their last $50 after she got sick and had to miss work for a month.He already paid his rent and bills for the month, but without her income the couple couldnÂt cover grocer-ies and other essentials. His next paycheck was more than a week away.Faced with a similar cash crunch years ago, Vazquez had resorted to a payday loan, a high-interest, short term loan meant to tide a borrower over until the next paycheck. But the couple and their toddler son were eventually evicted from their apartment because they couldnÂt make both their rent and the loan payments.Vazquez vowed never to take out such a loan again. This time, he had another option. An overnight support manager at Walmart, Vazquez was able get a $150 advance on his pay using an app that allows the companyÂs employees to access up to half their earned wages during a pay period.A growing number of companies are rolling out products and services that allow employees to receive a portion of their pay when they need it. This can help workers, especially those making hourly wages or working irregular schedules, to avoid unpleasant and poten-tially costly options such as borrowing from loved ones, running up credit card debt, selling possessions or taking out payday or other high-interest loans when bills come due or emergencies arise before the next paycheck.Could this be the future of payday? Developers of flexible-pay services say adhering to a rigid pay cycle doesnÂt make sense. Josh Reeves, CEO and co-founder of the payroll company Gusto, sees a model in the way parents pay their kids for doing chores. ÂIf they mow the lawn, they get paid right away,ÂŽ Reeves says. ÂWe think in the future, everyone will get paid (for their work) when they do it.ÂŽSome experts acknowledge that giving employees early access to their pay can backfire if, for instance, they spend the money unwisely.

** A8 Tuesday, August 7, 2018 | The News Herald ANOTHER VIEWThe Trump administration eased back somewhat from its proposed tariffs on Canadian newsprint, which could further devastate newspapers, but the U.S. International Trade Commission, which has the final say, should kill the taxes entirely when it hears the matter later this month. The case arose from a complaint by a lone Washington paper mill owned by a New York hedge fund. The North Pacific Paper Co. argued Canada was unfairly subsidizing its producers, allowing them to undercut American companies. In response, the Commerce Department implemented tariffs in January of up to 22 percent on Canadian imports. Newsprint is traditionally the second-largest cost for most publishers. During a time when print publications are struggling to meet the challenges of a digital market, the higher costs threaten to further drag down a variety of interests, particularly community newspapers, which play a vital role in keeping small-town and rural residents informed. In ThursdayÂs announcement, the Trump administration revealed a handful of modifications. It will now spare two Canadian paper companies from the tariff while imposing a duty of 22 percent on another company. Remaining producers north of the border will face tariffs of up to 9.81 percent. While an improvement, the adjustments donÂt go far enough. A bipartisan bill proposed by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, has 20 co-sponsors and would put the tariffs on ice until the completion of an economic impact study. Identical legislation has support in the House. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media. Moving forward in Walton County Walton County residents in favor of customary use need to realize property owners do have real property rights, and while the beach is something a lot of people enjoy, it isnÂt the property owners who drew these lines to the water line. Beachfront owners who are against customary use need to realize the beach is different than any other land in the world, especially in this area. Owners arenÂt doing anyone any favors by running people off the edge of a property line when no one else is around. ThatÂs just rude and unnecessary. How much of your life are you enjoying if youÂre just sitting there waiting for someone to come so you can tell them to leave an empty beach? And the public doesnÂt help when they go on these ownersÂ properties and act like they were born in a barn. The truth is this: Neither side is going to get everything, and both sides are going to end up spending a lot of money on the issue. So instead of arguing endlessly, have real conversations, compromise andfind the answers that will get Walton County moving forward again.

Among the podcasts, which were removed, were the show ÂWar RoomÂŽ and the popular ÂAlex Jones ShowÂŽ podcast, which is hosted daily by the prominent conspiracy theorist.

Same with the Christian baker. Harold Pretzel: LOL. As a conservative, am I supposed to be enraged by this? You guys even fail at that.READER FEEDBACK VIEWPOINTS The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is an independent, bipartisan body responsible for key aspects of voter registration, election administration, and technical guidelines for voting systems. In the past few weeks, measures proposing an increase in its funding have come before both chambers of Congress. Both times, they have failed. In July, the House of Representatives voted down an increase of $380 million strictly along party lines. In the Senate late last week, a more modest $250 million was proposed; it still failed 50-47, with TennesseeÂs Sen. Bob Corker the only Republican voting in favor. The author of the Senate amendment, Connecticut Sen. Patrick Leahy, said after his measureÂs failure that Âthe integrity of our elections, which are the foundation of our democracy, should not be a partisan issue.ÂŽ Sen. Leahy is right. After all, we all know that the problem is real. Election infrastructure, including voter registration databases, were a target of Russian hackers in the 2016 election, per the intelligence communityÂs unanimous assessment. In addition, a variety of sources this summer have confirmed the Russians are hard at work once again trying to influence the coming midterm elections. In the aftermath of President TrumpÂs embarrassing presser with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki wherein he took PutinÂs side over that of the U.S. intelligence community (and a subsequent weekÂs worth of damage control attempts by the White House), many Republicans rightly condoned the presidentÂs remarks. They expressed their own agreement with the intelligence community that Russian active measures remain a real threat, and urged the president not to kowtow to PutinÂ„ or to invite him to Washington this fall, in the midst of a democratic process he was actively working to undermine. But those words of criticism, while right and welcome, are meaningless absent any real action. This problem of rhetoric without action was mirrored by the White House last week. The administration trotted out a host of national security leadersÂ„ including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Advisor John Bolton, FBI Director Christopher Wray, National Security Agency Director Paul Nakasone, and even embattled Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen NielsenÂ„ all to confirm a Âpervasive messaging campaign by Russia to try to weaken and divide the United StatesÂŽ in the midterm elections. While their message was reaffirming and reassuring, it was disturbing to hear little in the way of policy specifics being undertaken to do something about the problem. And of course, the president made matters worse not long after. Ranting and slurring at a campaign rally later that evening, he once again referred to the notion of election interference as Âthe Russia hoax.ÂŽ Clearly, with the executive branch ever hobbled by its own leaderÂs ineffectiveness on this issue, it is up to Congress to act. Graham F. West is the communications director for Truman Center for National Policy and Truman National Security Project and a columnist for Cagle Cartoons.Why is election security a partisan issue?

** clear that the Iranian regime faces a choice: either change its threat-ening, destabilizing behavior and reintegrate with the global economy, or continue down a path of economic isolation.ÂŽA first set of U.S. sanctions that had been eased under the accord were going into effect at one minute past midnight under an exec-utive ordered signed by Trump. Those sanctions affect financial transac-tions that involve U.S. dollars, IranÂs automo-tive sector, the purchase of commercial planes and metals including gold.A second batch of U.S sanctions targeting IranÂs oil sector and central bank are to be reimposed in early November. Trump warned that those who donÂt wind down their economic ties to Iran Ârisk severe consequences.ÂŽThe Europeans didnÂt like any of it. Despite TrumpÂs claims, the accord Âis working and delivering on its goalÂŽ of limiting IranÂs nuclear program, said a statement by European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and the foreign ministers of France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The ministers said the Iran deal is Âcrucial for the security of Europe, the region and the entire world,ÂŽ and the European Union issued a Âblocking statuteÂŽ Monday to protect European businesses from the impact of the sanctions.A senior administration official, briefing reporters under ground rules requiring anonymity, said the United States is Ânot particularly concernedÂŽ by EU efforts to protect European firms from the sanctions.Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran still can rely on China and Russia to keep its oil and banking sectors afloat. Speaking in a television interview, he also demanded com-pensation for decades of American ÂinterventionÂŽ in the Islamic Republic.Months of uncertainty surrounding the sanctions have already further hurt IranÂs econ-omy. The countryÂs rial currency has tanked, and the downturn has sparked protests across the nation.The ÂTrump Administration wants the world to believe itÂs concerned about the Iranian people,ÂŽ Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a statement posted to Twitter. But, he said, the reimposed sanctions would endanger Âordinary Iranians.ÂŽÂUS hypocrisy knows no bounds,ÂŽ he said.U.S. officials insisted the American government stands with the people of Iran and supports many of their complaints against their own government.National Security Adviser John Bolton said IranÂs leadership is on Âvery shaky ground,ÂŽ but he insisted economic pressure from the Trump administration is not an attempt at Âregime change.ÂŽ The News Herald | Tuesday, August 7, 2018 A9 By Scott Smith and Christine ArmarioThe Associated PressCARACAS, Venezuela Â„ Pro-government factions mobilized thousands of Venezuelans dressed in red Â„ the color of the ruling socialist party Â„ onto the streets of the capital on Monday in a bid to show the country remains united around President Nicolas Maduro after what the government described as a thwarted assassination attempt.ÂThis river of red,ÂŽ Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza declared as the crowd waved flags and carried posters with Mad-uroÂs image. ÂIt could have been another red running through these streets.ÂŽAuthorities say they have now captured all those behind the attack using two drones armed with explosives. The names of those detained have not been released, but chief prosecutor Tarek William Saab said the six people arrested could face charges including treason, attempted homicide and terrorism. ÂThey need to pay the penalty VenezuelaÂs law calls for,ÂŽ Diosdado Cabello, a high-ranking socialist party leader, told the crowd of thousands. ÂThere wonÂt be any more forgiveness.ÂŽPublic employees are required to attend such pro-government rallies to ensure a strong show of support. Yet, even as Venezuelan leaders sought to project a nation united behind Maduro, analysts warned the incident makes the already unpopular leader even more vulnerable as he struggles to reverse a crip-pling humanitarian and economic crisis consid-ered worse than the Great Depression.Diego Moya-Ocampos, a Venezuelan analyst with the London-based consulting firm IHS Markit, warned SaturdayÂs failed attack could be a sign that low-level insurgent groups that have in the past expressed their frus-tration by throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at the National Guard during protests are now escalating to a more violent approach. ÂThis is a manifestation of institutions not being able to channel the politi-cal, economic and social crisis that Venezuela is going through,ÂŽ he said.Maduro was addressing hundreds of uniformed soldiers Saturday in a speech celebrating the 81st anniversary of the National Guard when an explosion pierced the air. Authorities say two drones, each packed with 2.2 pounds of C-4 plastic explosive, were aimed at the stage where Maduro, his wife and a slate of the nationÂs highest-ranking government leaders were gathered.The military managed to knock one of the drones off course electronically and the other craft crashed into an apartment building two blocks away.Images captured on live television showed Maduro and his wife looking up at the sky as the explosion struck and then hundreds of soldiers scrambling from the scene, an image of panic in stark contrast to the one of power and control the government tries to project.Saab said Monday that two suspects were detained quickly on Sat-urday after witnesses saw them operating one of the drones from a vehicle. He added that there was evidence that the attack was linked to an ongoing investigating related to a Âterrorist attackÂŽ last year.The comment appeared to be a reference to rogue police officer Oscar Perez, who flew a stolen helicopter over the capital in June 2017 and launched grenades at several government buildings. He and several comrades were killed in a gun battle with police after months on the lam.In his rallying speech, Cabello told Venezuelans there is no doubt that the ÂColombian oligarchyÂŽ and ÂNorth American imperialismÂŽ were behind SaturdayÂs attack.

[ARIANA CUBILLOS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Michael TarmThe Associated PressCHICAGO Â„ At least 11 people were shot to death and about 70 wounded in a weekend burst of violence in Chicago that instantly became a politi-cal issue when President Donald TrumpÂs lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, blamed the carnage on longtime Democratic rule in the city.Police on Monday attributed the dozens of shootings to gangs, the illegal flow of guns and sweltering August heat that drew more people outside.The victims ranged in age from 11 to 63, accord-ing to police. One teenage girl died after being shot in the face. A teenage boy was fatally shot riding a bike Sunday afternoon. Other shootings took place at a block party and a funeral.Even for Chicagoans all too accustomed to vio-lence in parts of the city, the weekend stood out. By way of comparison, at least seven people were killed and 32 wounded during the long Memorial Day weekend, the Chi-cago Tribune reported.ÂOur souls are burdened,ÂŽ Mayor Rahm Emanuel said. ÂIt is unac-ceptable to happen in any neighborhood of Chicago. We are a better city.ÂŽEchoing comments that Trump himself has made repeatedly about Chicago, Giuliani blamed Emanuel Â„ President Barack ObamaÂs White House chief of staff Â„ and decades of Âone party Democratic ruleÂŽ in a series of tweets on Sunday and Monday.The former New York mayor also tweeted his support for Chicago may-oral candidate and former Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, referring to him as ÂJerryÂŽ and calling him a Âpolic-ing genius.ÂŽMcCarthy plans to run next February against Emanuel, who fired McCarthy in 2015 after the release of dashcam video showing a white police officer kill a black teenager by shooting him 16 times.Misspelling EmanuelÂs last name, Giuliani tweeted: ÂHe can do a lot better than Mayor Emmanuel who is fiddling while Chicago burns.ÂŽ Giuliani also falsely claimed that Chi-cago had Â63 murders this weekend.ÂŽThe mayor had no immediate comment on GiulianiÂs attacks.Most of the shootings happened in poor neigh-borhoods on the West and South Sides where gangs are entrenched, said Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, standing next to the mayor.Johnson noted that homicides in the city are down by around 20 percent from last year. But he said gang members and others arrested on gun charges arenÂt dealt with harshly enough.ÂIt is the same people who are pulling the trig-gers,ÂŽ he said. ÂThis is a small subset of individu-als who think they can play by their own rules because they continue to get a slap on the wrist when we arrest them.ÂŽJohnson said at the morning news conference there had been no arrests in any of the weekend shootings.Days before the attacks, some 200 pro-testers marched through a well-to-do North Side neighborhood and briefly closed Lake Shore Drive, calling for more resources to stem violence in poor areas.Tio Hardiman, one of the organizers of last weekÂs rally, said members of the black community need to take the initiative by mediat-ing truces between gangs.The violence peaked early Sunday, including one shooting on the South Side that wounded eight people. 11 dead, nearly 70 wounded in weekend violence in ChicagoIn this Sunday photo, two women cry outside the Stroger Hospital in Chicago, after they were asked to leave due to overwhelming c rowds of family and friends of shooting victims.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, August 7, 2018 B1 LOCAL & STATEPANAMA CITY BEACHFrom China, with loveA local woman began receiving packages from Hong Kong, China and, knowing she didnÂt order hyper-authentic, long-distance takeout, decided to contact law enforcement.The packages began arriv-ing about a month ago, the woman told Bay County SheriffÂs Deputies, from an unknown address in Hong Kong. She was able to get that first package sent back through the U.S. Postal Ser-vice and thought that was the end of it.Until another package showed up, also from Hong Kong. And thatÂs when she called the sheriffÂs office.The woman said she believed the packages might contain anillegal substance but, when opened, they found only multi-colored diaper pins.Satisfied nothing illegal or dangerous, just strange, was happening, the deputy told the woman to return the package to the Post Office and have them block that Hong Kong address from sending her mail. The incident is closed.PANAMA CITYUnidentiÂ“ ed Â” ying trafÂ“ c hazardDriving on US 231 at night can be harrowing already, between deer, bear and even the occasional alligator. But one local couple nearly ran into an obstacle they didnÂt foresee Â„ a drone.The male driver told Bay County SheriffÂs Deputies he was driving southbound on US 231 near Pinetree Road when a drone flew by his car and crashed into the roadway. The car wasnÂt struck, but the driver was Âvery irritatedÂŽ because of the potential traf-fic crash the drone could have caused. The driver retrieved the droneÂs battery from the wreckage, but an unknown male picked up the drone and left with it.As deputies were speaking to the driver, another man drove up with the drone in question, saying he was driving by and picked up the drone, but knew he should return it once he saw law enforcement. Conveniently, the drone has a label with the ownerÂs name and phone number. Deputies called, and the droneÂs owner said he never meant to fly it over the highway but had just Âlost control of it.ÂŽThe drone was returned and the case closed.FOUNTAINIgnoring the Call of Duty Video games are meant to be addictive, but at some point, you have to learn when to put the controller down.Unfortunately for a Foun-tain man, he hasnÂt quite figured that out yet.Bay County SheriffÂs Office deputies were dispatched to the address in reference to a possible domestic disturbance. There, they made contact with a woman who said her 23-year-old husband destroyed the house because she asked him to put down his video game and help out with their children.The woman advised that, upon making that request, her husband stormed off and began punching holes in the wall of their bedroom. Then, he continued his rage into the kitchen, where he knocked everything off the counter and onto the ground before leaving to stay at his grandmotherÂs house for the night. Despite the damage done to the home, the wife said he never touched her, and the deputy advised that she could contact BCSO if she had any more information.Nothing further on the case.

Jackson 850-522-5121 | @TyraJackPCNH firstname.lastname@example.orgLYNN HAVEN Â„ Little by little, the Lynn Haven Heritage Society is restoring the McMullin libraryto its former glory.Since the building was moved in 2016, the society and volunteers have added a new roof, paint job, a handicap-accessible bathroom, and more. The library also has water, sewage and electric-ity, said Rich Walker, project manager and former vice chair of the Heritage Society.The hope it have it restored by January as the project has been a long time in coming.ÂWhen the Heritage Society was formed almost 10 years ago we were looking for a project to do, and we zeroed in on the library,ÂŽWalker said.In between the 10 years, the organization took on the task of helping to revamp Roberts Hall. Two years ago, the soci-ety brought McMullin Library back to the forefront, Walker said, and began renovations in July 2016.Once the library is completed, it will be primarily used as a welcome center for Lynn Haven, Walker said. The McMullin Library will also house Lynn HavenÂs history and archives, and be home to Library to be restored by 2019Fixing McMullinRich Walker opens a window at the McMullin Library on Thursday in Lynn Haven. Tools are set out inside the McMullin Library on Thursday in Lynn Haven. ÂWe have to bring it back to code. We canÂt do too much to it because it has to be brought up to how it was in 1911.ÂŽRich Walker, project managerSee MCMULLIN, B4 MILITARY | B2AIRMEN REPLACE VETERANÂS LOST FLAG Fisherman powers through despite lost ga capsizing kayakBy Katie Landeck 522-5114 | @PCNHKatieL email@example.comPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ Two hours into the fight of his life, Lance Sanders realized he was going to have to call in reinforcements if he was going to land the monstrous sailfish he had hooked.This fish was far more than he had bargained for.On Sunday, Sanders and his friend Brian Russell had taken their kayaks out early in the morning to fish for king mackerel. Sanders, who had worked late the night before and hadnÂt gotten much sleep, brought his Penn battle 5000 on a star rod with 60 pound braid to fish.After three hours on the water, Sanders and Russell were tired and ready to head back to the shore when the sailfish hit.ÂThe moment it skyrock-eted out of the water I knew it wasn't a king,ÂŽ Sanders said. ÂOnce I saw what it was, my first thought was how far is this gonna drag me. And it pulled me everywhere.ÂŽHe means it. GPS data saved from the fight show the sailfish took off toward open water, bringing Sanders along for the ride as Russell paddled along behind him on the jour-ney that ultimately lasted more than five miles.Only, it wasnÂt actually that long for Russell. About halfway through, RussellÂs kayak flipped, spilling equip-ment into the Gulf of Mexico Â„ including the much needed gaff. His paddle and poles were in SandersÂ kayak at the time, which was both fortunate and unfortunate. Fortunate that they too werenÂt lost to the sea, and unfortunate in that when the sailfish pulled Sanders 100 yards away, Russell had to FISH TALESWith a little help, angler reels in huge sail shLance Sanders, with the help of Brian Russell and Matt Pemberton, landed this sailÂ“ sh over the weekend.

But when members of the 919th Special Operations Wing at Duke Field read about her story, they decided to give her a new one.ÂI had such a crappy year, and losing that flag was such a huge hit to me,ÂŽ Gray said.Gray Â„ a 14-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force who is stationed at Hurlburt Field Â„ went to Crab Island June 24 with her family. After a day on the water, they packed up and went to shore.Halfway to the boat ramp, GrayÂs stepson realized their flag was missing. The Ameri-can flag Gray bought before her first deployment to Afghanistan more than 10 years ago had fallen off the boatÂs flag pole.The group quickly turned around and searched for the flag, but had no luck.The Daily News wrote about GrayÂs situation in late June, and the story caught the eye of Maj. Terrell Eikner with the 919th Special Operations Wing.ÂI said, ÂHey, I have a flag that was flown in combat in Afghanistan and I think we need to replace her flag because sheÂs a member of the Air Force family,ÂÂŽ Eikner said. ÂItÂs the right thing to do.ÂŽEikner and the rest of the wing presented Gray with a new flag on Sunday in a hangar on Duke Field in front of her parents, boyfriend and children. Before Eikner presented the flag, he explained the sig-nificance behind it.ÂI go up to my attic to retrieve the flag. I have about 50 boxes in my attic,ÂŽ Eikner said. ÂLuck-ily, itÂs in the first box that I grab Âƒ I pull the flag out, thereÂs a certificate in there. On that cer-tificate (it says) Âflown by Maj. Bradfield.Â Now, Col. Bradfield Â„ our wing commander.ÂIÂm telling you maÂam, this whole thing Âƒ it was meant to be.ÂŽEikner presented Gray the flag, the original certificate and a new certificate made just for her. With tears in her eyes, she thanked him and the rest of the soldiers for their generosity.ÂThis is a huge honor for me to receive something that youÂve kept for so long,ÂŽ Gray said, choked up. ÂAnd I fully understand, and IÂm so, so grateful that you guys magi-cally found this and decided to give it to me. IÂm overwhelmed with gratitude.ÂŽAfter the ceremony, Gray and her family got to meet Col. Les Bradfield and thank him, as well.ÂIÂm very sorry that you lost your original flag, but so glad that you got this (new one),ÂŽ Bradfield said. ÂIÂm proud of this wing because thereÂs a lot of great citizen air commandos that see things like that and reach out. IÂm glad we can help.ÂŽFellow airmen replace womanÂs missing agThe Associated PressPARKLAND Â„ Metal detec-tors will not be installed for the start of classes at a Florida high school where 17 students and faculty were slain on Valen-tineÂs Day.The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports Broward County Public Schools Superinten-dent Robert Runcie sent a letter Friday to parents of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students informing them that plans for the metal detectors were on hold.A school board workshop on security measures is scheduled Aug. 14. Among the issues being considered: how to get 3,200 students through metal detec-tors each morning.ÂAs we continue our due diligence to implement the pro-gramÂ„ consulting with vendors and experts and reviewing turn-key solutionsÂ„ many issues have been raised that require the District to pause and have a more thoughtful discussion on policy and procedural aspects of this pilot,ÂŽ Runcie wrote. Class starts Aug. 15. Officials previously said students would no longer have to use seethrough backpacks when they returned to the Parkland school. The Miami Herald reports that students and faculty will see other safety measures in place when they return to the Parkland campus, including the addition of more security staff.School identification badges will be required again for all students and staff members. New fences, gates, and surveil-lance video cameras have been installed, and the schoolÂs inter-com system has been upgraded. Classroom doors throughout the school will remain locked from the outside at all times, Runcie said. Over 30 new por-table classrooms also have been installed to compensate for the closure of the building where the shooting took place.Runcie said the school has hired a new employee whose Âsole responsibility will be to monitor the camera system and alert appropriate individuals of suspicious activity.ÂŽMany students from the school have criticized safety measures such as the clear backpacks, arguing that imple-menting gun laws would be more effective instead.Former student Nikolas Cruz has been jailed on 17 counts of first-degree murder since the shooting.Metal detectors delayed at Florida school where 17 died KaSandra Gray thanks the 919th Special Operations Wing for her new Â” ag with tears in her eyes as her mother and daughters watch from behind.

The Legislature in 2017 passed a law to carry out the constitutional amendment and included the smoking ban.Prominent Orlando lawyer John Morgan, who heavily bankrolled the constitutional amendment, filed a lawsuit last year challenging the smoking ban.BondiÂs office Friday filed an initial brief in its attempt to overturn Giev-ersÂ ruling. The brief raised a series of issues, including argu-ing that the Legislature Âconsidered important health and safety factorsÂŽ when deciding to ban smoking.ÂNotably, the Legisla-ture considered evidence of the health hazards of smoking and concluded that smoking marijuana constitutes a harmful delivery method,ÂŽ the brief said.ÂTime and again during debate, elected members of FloridaÂs Legislature emphasized that the amendment is exclusively about medicine, and that smoking is antithetical to good medicine. In consid-ering these health-related factors, the Legislature reasonably determined that the harms caused by smoking Â„ including harms to patients and those exposed to secondhand smoke Â„ were ample reason to exclude smoking from the statutory definition of Âmedical use.Â The Leg-islature therefore acted under its general author-ity to regulate public health, safety, and welfare when it drew a reasonable line between the smoking of medical marijuana, and other delivery methods.ÂŽBut in her May ruling, Gievers found that language in the amendment Ârecognizes there is no right to smoke in public places, thereby implicitly recognizing the appropri-ateness of using smokable medical marijuana in private places consistent with the amendment.ÂŽThe Âability to smoke medical marijuana was impliedÂŽ in the constitutional language Âand is therefore a protected right,ÂŽ Gievers wrote.Florida seeking to uphold band on medical marijuanaMedical marijuana continues to be a controversial subject. [FILE PHOTO] By Jim Turner News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ Nearly $450,000 was spread to seven statewide candidates in the second round of public matching funds, rais-ing the total for the 2018 elections to $3.9 mil-lion, according to Florida Division of Elections numbers.In a sign of an increase in small individual donations, Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis received $183,006 on Friday, the most that any candidate received last week from the matching-funds program.DeSantis, a Northeast Florida congressman, has now received $826,232 through the controver-sial program, which has divided state lawmakers. Critics in recent years have sought to elimi-nate the program, which matches individual con-tributions of $250 or less.No public money is dispensed until candidates for Cabinet positions reach $100,000 in such relatively small-dollar contributions received in a period that began last September. For guber-natorial candidates, the threshold is $150,000.Statewide candidates drew $4.34 million from the program in 2014 and $6.1 million in 2010.Agriculture Commis-sioner Adam Putnam, who is going up against DeSantis in the Aug. 28 Republican primary for governor, received $81,170 last week, bring-ing his matching-funds total to just over $1 mil-lion. Gwen Graham, a former congresswoman who is among the Democrats running for governor, picked up $103,970 on Friday from the matching-funds program, bringing her overall haul from the program to nearly $1.1 million.In the attorney general race, former Hillsborough County Circuit Judge Ashley Moody received $29,600 on Friday, bringing her total matching funds to $313,348. Democratic state Rep. Sean Shaw of Tampa picked up $19,832 on Friday. Shaw has now received $158,825. DeSantis gets boost from public
** B4 Tuesday, August 7, 2018 | The News HeraldBy McKenna OxendenTampa Bay TimesCLEARWATER Â„ Robert Kantor thought he was going to die.Then he quickly snapped back to reality. He had to fight for his life Â„ and his sonÂs.Kantor, 45, and his 15-year-old son, Frank, were stuck in a rip current at the beach. The two were enjoying an evening swim on the eve-ning of July 23 when they were swept up by a strong current and carried away from shore.HereÂs how father and son survived:Lifeguards are only on duty until 7 p.m. there, and father and son found themselves in trouble soon afterward. They desperately tried to signal for help to KantorÂs wife Gabriela, who was stand-ing on the beach.They didnÂt know if she saw them. As the waves crashed against their bodies, they came up with a plan to try to escape the rip current, relying heav-ily on the son. The father is usually a strong swim-mer, but was recovering from shoulder surgery six weeks before.They decided the 15-year-old would swim parallel to the shoreline to escape the rip. The father would grab his sonÂs legs and be carried along.It didnÂt work. Robert Kantor kept slipping away. He tried to keep it together.ÂI thought about stay-ing calm,ÂŽ the father said. ÂI meditate and I was able to think clearly and to communicate with my son and come up with a plan and not focus on the fear.ÂŽThey came up with a back-up plan. The son got behind his father and kicked as hard as he could while the father swam parallel to the beach. It worked. The two started to feel relief from the current.Robert Kantor said his son didnÂt tire. He treaded water and swam with ease, as if he was just playing around.But the father? His arms felt like cement blocks as his body filled with exhaustion.Meanwhile on shore, efforts were underway to rescue them. The wife had called 911 and told rescuers where father and son were in the water.Clearwater Fire & Rescue arrived at the beach, near the 700 block of El Dorado Avenue. Firefighter Scott McGrail then swam 25 yards out and rescued Robert Kantor with a paddle board.Lt. Matt Burmood said the father was visibly tired and pale. The 911 call was critical to a suc-cessful water rescue. The more information first-responders get, Magness said, the better prepared theyÂll be.ÂItÂs very different from a house fire because there are so many variables to water rescues,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe have to come up with a plan as we go so the caller needs to provide us with as much information as possible.ÂŽWhat father and son did to survive the rip current also conformed with the advice from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration: Swimmers caught in a rip current should let them-selves float and swim parallel to the shore to escape.What those who find themselves trapped in a rip current should not do is try to swim back to shore against the current Â„ that will just tire them out, and increase their risk of drowning.But the biggest key to surviving a rip current, Lt. Kevin Bowler said, is to stay calm. He said father and son Âabsolutely did the right things.ÂŽRobert Kantor, of Clearwater, said his experience showed him that he can make a differ-ence by educating more people about the dangers of rip currents.Father, son survive Florida rip current PANAMA CITYAAA: P.C. gas prices some of highest in stateGas prices in Panama City are some of the high-est in the state, according to AAA.The average gas price in Panama City is $2.88,according to AAA, which ties it with the Crestview-Fort Walton Beach area for the second highest price in Florida. The highest prices are found in West Palm Beach-Boca Raton at $2.91.The prices rose slightly last week, but analysts are hopeful the trend will reverse this week. The stateÂs average price is $2.76, which is 4 cents more than a month ago, and 47 cents more than last year, according to AAA. The national average is $2.87.Gas prices in July aver-aged $2.75 per gallon. That was the highest monthly average for July since 2014. Summer gas prices are poised to be the most expensive in four years, AAA said.ÂPrices at the pump have pinballed around this summer, but fortunately have remained within a 20 cent range,ÂŽ said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman, in a prepared statement. ÂThe limited swings in pump prices and a strong economy has led to one of the big-gest driving summers in history. Prices should slip lower this week, due to falling futures prices on the stock market. However, demand historically remains strong through August, which should prevent prices from slip-ping anywhere near the lows we saw last year.ÂŽPANAMA CITYVictim IDÂd, subject at large in shootingThe suspect in a shoot-ing Sunday at the Royal Arms Garden Apartments on Balboa Avenue is still at large, though Panama City Police have issued a warrant for his arrest.Police say Jarquez Whitley, 29, of Lynn Haven, intentionally shot Juwan Cummings, 21, in the back area of the apart-ment complex behind the J building around noon. Whitley then fled the scene and while his vehi-cle was later recovered in Lynn Haven, WhitleyÂs whereabouts are still unknown.He has been charged with aggravated battery, felon in possession of a firearm and discharging a firearm in public. According to police, the shooting was not random and Cummings was targeted.No information was available on the status of the victim, but radio reports from the time indicate he suffered from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.Police were summoned to the apartment com-plex originally on a call of a shooting involving two young children, according to incident reports, though that was later determined that information was not credible. One round was found behind the J building at the complex, where there is a small play area.Anyone having information in this case is urged to call the Panama City Police Department at 850-872-3100, or they can report their tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 850-785TIPS.PANAMA CITYElection equipment testing on WednesdayGearing up for the Aug. 28 primary election, the Bay County Supervisor of Elections office will be testing their equipment on Wednesday.The Bay County Canvassing Board will meet at 8 a.m. and begin test-ing the equipment at 8:30 a.m. The testing is for logic and accuracy.The public is encour-aged to attend. The office is located at 830 W. 11th St. in Panama City.For more information, call 784-6100.PANAMA CITYPCPD investigating drive-by shooting incidentPolice are searching for a local man after they say he fired shots at a residence near the inter-section of 6th Street and East Avenue Sunday.Panama City Police have issued arrest warranted for Shaquan Gipson, 23, of Panama City, on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm and discharging a firearm in public.The shooting occurred around 10 a.m. with police saying Gipson fired several shots from his vehicle at the residence. During the investigation, it was learned that Gipson had targeted the residence because of an ongoing feud with the resident in the home at the time. GipsonÂs whereabouts are currently unknown.Anyone having information in this case is urged to call the Panama City Police Department at 850-872-3100, or they can report their tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 850-785TIPS. News Herald Staff ReportsAREA BRIEFSthe Lynn Haven Heritage Society and other groups.The library was constructed in 1911, and officially became the McMullin Library in 1922.The building has been moved four times, and currently sits at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Eighth Street. ItÂs original location was at Ohio Avenue, Walker said.ÂWe have to bring it back to code,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe canÂt do too much to it because it has to be brought up to how it was in 1911.ÂŽThe doors to the structure have to be restored to its former condition, and volunteers are getting ready to install air conditioning, Walker said.He said the cost for upgrades was originally set at about $100,000. The use of volunteers and donations has allowed the society to split the cost in half, Walker said. He said there wouldnÂt be a need for government contractors and other costs because renovations would be done through the help of the community. ÂThis is a community building, and this is a community effort,ÂŽ he said. MCMULLINFrom Page B1 A skeleton key sits in a lock at the McMullin Library on Thursday in Lynn Haven. [PATTI BLAKE/THE NEWS HERALD] paddle with his hands to make up the difference.ÂLet me tell you, it was a day I will never forget,ÂŽ Russell said.That was the point Sanders decided he needed reinforcements and called his friend Matt Pemberton for the second time since hooking up.ÂHe was the only person I knew that had a gaff,ÂŽ Sanders said.Not one to miss a good fish, Pemberton was on the road as soon as he could load his gear in the truck and found Sanders Â„ who was battling the fish by himself for a bit after Russell decided to head back to land Â„ out on the water within about an hour.ÂWhen I get there and put my hands on the little bitty 5500 Penn slammer with light rod, I couldnÂt figure out how he had even kept up with the sailfish,ÂŽ Pemberton said. ÂThen I got to feel it and its power.ÂI looked over at Lance and told him that this Âis Old Man and the Sea kinda stuff buddy. This thing is a fatty,ÂÂŽ he said. For another 15 minutes, the pair battled with the fish and then finally wres-tled it close enough to the kayaks for Pemberton to take a stab at gaffing it.ÂIt seemed tired,ÂŽ he said. But, Âit wasnÂt as tired as I thought. It completely flipped out and started trying to pull straight down. I had the gaff in one hand, and the other side of the kayak with the other and was hanging on to it for what seemed like forever.ÂŽThen, the tail stuck out of the water and the pair was able to hoist it onto the boat.ÂLance and I just kinda looked at each other and he said, Âdamn, IÂm glad you came. I knew I called the right guy,ÂÂŽ Pemberton said with a laugh. ÂNot that I had an idea of what I was actually going to do. I had never landed anything over five feet in my kayak.ÂŽWith the meat though, they knew exactly what to do Â„ tacos.ÂFor me, this was a once in a lifetime catch,ÂŽ Sand-ers said. Have a fish tale?

** B6 Tuesday, August 7, 2018 | The News HeraldARIES (March 21-April 19) Â„ Paint the day with bold strokes and leave the detail work for another time, if it even comes to that. ItÂs a day of experiments. You wonÂt know until you jump in. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ YouÂre in the thick of a complex task and still trying to get your bearings. It will be a wobbly ride for a little while, but soon enough youÂll develop a knack and this section will seem like a mere blip. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ Interaction doesnÂt have to be intense or constant to be meaningful. Sometimes just being near one another, in the same room, doing your own thing is more than enough to bring a sense of comfort. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ YouÂve a new interest. ItÂs intriguing but difÂ“ cult. DonÂt worry; you can be talented at something without being good at it. Sometimes the talent is just a curiosity that drives you to practice and inevitably improve. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Â„ Someone likes you, thinks youÂre bright, admires you and wants to be around you more. Is that so surprising? Perhaps -because either this person may not readily show afÂ“ nity, or the timing just hasnÂt seemed right yet. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Â„ YouÂre excellent at mixing, matching and merging, and when people go along with your suggestions everybody wins. YouÂll Â“ nally get the goahead to do something youÂve wanted to do for a long time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Â„ Think about it; youÂre actually living some of your childhood schemes. Why stop scheming now? Let yourself dream outrageously. Outcomes that, at the moment, seem unlikely may not be as farfetched as you imagine. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Â„ You want to lay the foundation for a big change. The trouble is that you donÂt really know how things will culminate and what will develop. You only know that it will be different from whatÂs happening now. A sense of readiness is all you need. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Â„ A good friend will nurture your idiosyncrasies and love you for the parts of you that donÂt conform to her expectations or his beliefs. A good friend wants you to be more of who you already are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Â„ You sometimes wish you were better at affairs of the heart. Then again, people who seem to be in control of their ÂfeelsÂŽ are possibly not feeling them as deeply as you are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ Surprising events wake you up like cold water to the face. YouÂll wonder why you didnÂt see it before. You were looking at other things. No matter. Now that youÂre aware, new options will open for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Â„ What good is a support system if you never lean on it? Sure, itÂs nice to know itÂs there. YouÂd do well to test it out every once in a while, too. Check in and let yourself be a little vulnerable with the people who love you.HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS DIVERSIONSÂTrivia FunÂŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

I have been married to my husband for 28 years and never cheated. We have a good life together, and our sex life has always been great, but I have recently fallen in love with another woman. I havenÂt told anyone, not even her. She has made several comments and advances toward me, but she frequently makes comments like, ÂI donÂt swim in the lady pond.ÂŽ The two of us recently went out of town together. When she kissed me on my neck, I pulled away and nothing more happened. I am positive that if I hadnÂt, something would have happened. I feel like IÂm going crazy because I think about her every minute. We talk on the phone several times a day. SheÂs married (to a man) and has been for 30 years. Is it possible for two straight women to suddenly fall in love with each other? Should I tell her how I feel? Please help me. IÂm confused, lost and in turmoil. Â„ FALLING IN LOVEDEAR FALLING: Yes, it is possible for members of both sexes to become attracted to someone of the same sex and fall in love. Have an honest conversation with the woman. Tell her you are confused about what happened on the trip. IÂm not sure she was completely honest about her ÂswimmingÂŽ habits, but you may or may not be the first woman she has become attracted to. I hesitate to advise what steps to take beyond that since you are both in longtime, committed relationships. Much will depend upon what she has to say.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, August 7, 2018 C1 SPORTS BASEBALL | C3MLB ROUNDUPScores, stats, standings, and leaders from MondayÂs games By Mark LongThe Associated PressGAINESVILLE Â„ Florida coach Dan Mullen has no illu-sions about his quarterback situation.Especially not after nearly a week of practice.Mullen made it clear Monday that Feleipe Franks, Kyle Trask and freshman Emory Jones have a long way to go to meet his lofty expec-tations. He said it might not happen this season or even next year. It was an indictment of what Mullen inherited when he replaced Jim McElwain last November and offered a less-than-ideal outlook on the upcoming season for those hoping the Gators would return to their glory days after eight years of offensive ineptitude.ÂTo be a big-time quarterback, I donÂt think they even think theyÂd know how hard that is,ÂŽ Mullen said. ÂThey should understand it by hopefully next summer. I was hoping maybe with just one of them it would really click, but I didnÂt see that happen. But that doesnÂt shock me. It might not even be next summer. It might be the summer after that.ÂA lot of guys it takes two or three years of really working. They work one summer and realize ÂBoy, I wasnÂt close.Â They work the next summer and they think theyÂve really got it and then they come out and theyÂre like, ÂI worked a lot harder. I thought IÂd be ready, but I should be even further ahead than this.ÂÂŽMullen had hoped to find a starter long before the Sept. 1 season opener against Charleston Southern. Franks started eight games last season, completing 55 percent of his passes for 1,438 yards, with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. The 6-foot-5 sophomore has ideal size and an NFL arm. But his accuracy and decision-making ability made him look lost at times in 2017.Backup Kyle Trask missed all of last season following foot surgery. Jones was one of Mul-lenÂs top recruits in his first signing class.Mullen said the three have good attitudes and are making progress, but they also might need years to reach the level that Alex Smith, Chris Leak, Tim Tebow and Dak Prescott did under MullenÂs guidance.ÂIÂm seeing flashes here and there, but itÂs really about consistency of performance,ÂŽ Mullen said. ÂI watch each guy and that looks really good and then the next play and that looks really bad.ÂŽMullen: QBs have a way to goSee GATORS, C2 By Bob FerranteThe Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Â„ Quarter-back competitions are nothing new for Florida State, which has had four in the last six seasons.But this competition is quite different from preseasons past. The Seminoles opened their first preseason under new coach Willie Taggart on Monday with two quarterbacks with starting experience.Taggart, whose Florida State coaching debut will be Sept. 3 against Virginia Tech, said he has no timetable to make a decision.ÂWhen they decide to sepa-rate themselves and make it a no-brainer is when weÂll make that decision,ÂŽ said Taggart, who arrived at Florida State after a year at Oregon. ÂItÂs going to be pretty cool to watch them go do their thing.ÂŽ Deondre Francois and James Blackman may have the edge in experience, but Taggart also said not to discount redshirt freshman Bailey Hockman.Taggart feels the quarterbacks have similar traits, including arm strength, mobil-ity, toughness and intelligence to run his uptempo, spread-based Gulf Coast offense.What the Seminoles are looking for is an important intangible Â„ who is the best leader.ÂThe job description of quar-terback is make the other 10 guys better,ÂŽ offensive coordi-nator Walt Bell said. ÂWho can do that at a higher rate? ThatÂs going to be the guy that you entrust to be the quarterback. ... YouÂve got to be a guy that your teammates can trust, and I think you earn that in a multi-tude of ways, whether itÂs how you work or how you speak to people or the relationships you create.ÂŽ Blackman and Francois have a significant advantage in terms of experience. Francois started as a redshirt freshman in 2016, New coach, old storyTaggart FSU era starts with QB battle Florida State coach Willie Taggart watches his team during an NCAA college football practice in Tallahassee on Monday. See FSU, C2By Steven WineThe Associated PressDAVIE Â„ The NFLÂs active career rushing leader may still be a starter at age 35.Frank Gore is listed as sharing the No. 1 running back spot with incum-bent Kenyan Drake on the first depth chart of train-ing camp for the Miami Dolphins.Gore signed with his hometown team in March and was widely expected to fill the role of veteran backup. HeÂs awfully experienced for a feature back, with 13 seasons and 196 games of mileage.But that mileage translates into lots of yardage Â„ 14,026 yards, to be exact, which ranks behind only Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders and Curtis Martin.And 10 practices into camp, Gore shows no sign he has lost a step.ÂIÂm not surprised,ÂŽ coach Adam Gase said DolphinsÂ Gore is competing for starting positionSee GORE, C2Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois th rows the ball during an NCAA college football practice in Tallahassee on Monday. [PHOTOS BY JOE RONDONE/TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRACT VIA AP]
** C2 Tuesday, August 7, 2018 | The News Herald Monday. ÂHeÂs just been proving everybody wrong for so many years. You just never doubt that guy.ÂŽGase, Gore and Drake all described as no big deal the depth chart, especially one posted leading up to the first exhibition game. But Gore has enjoyed showing in practice he can still play.ÂI come out here and compete every day,ÂŽ he said. ÂNot just with Drake, but with every guy at my position. I think we all push and help each other. With me, whatever my coaches want me to do this year, IÂm going to do it.ÂŽ Drake could yet prove difficult to dislodge from the No. 1 job. He ranked sixth in the NFL last year with an average of 4.8 yards per carry, topping 100 yards in consecutive games after he became the starter in Week 13.ÂI donÂt think anybody really cares about where they are on the depth chart before preseason even starts,ÂŽ Drake said. ÂWeÂve got to go out there and earn our spots.ÂŽGore said Drake is worthy friendly competition.ÂKenyan is a very talented guy,ÂŽ Gore said. HeÂs smart; he can do everything on the field. I think that me and him can really help this team be successful this year.ÂŽThat would be a change. The Dolphins went 6-10 last season, when they ranked 28th in both points and rushing.They expect to have a more potent offense this year with an upgraded line, the return of Ryan Tannehill and their new running back, whoÂs not new to the NFL at all.Gore has started every game since 2012. Last year he averaged a career-worst 3.7 yards per carry for the Indianapolis Colts, but they provided little room to run, and he did reach the 100-yard mark twice in the seasonÂs final month.He was thrilled at the chance to return to South Florida, where he was born and raised and starred for the Miami Hurricanes. The homecoming makes even ThursdayÂs mostly meaningless game against Tampa Bay special to Gore, because heÂs playing for Miami again.ÂPop Warner, high school, college and now the NFL,ÂŽ he said. ÂI want to do some great things for my city and for my team. I want to show guys that when they get up in age, if you love the game and you go out and work hard, it shouldnÂt matter what age you are. ThatÂs what my goal is this year.ÂŽIf he starts, thatÂs a bonus. GOREFrom Page C1In this Thursday, July 26 photo, running back Frank Gore, left, talks with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, right, at the NFL football teamÂs training camp in Davie. [LYNNE SLADKY/ AP PHOTO] Mullen said he expects players, especially quar-terbacks, to take big steps over the summer. QBs should be throwing with receivers and staying in the playbook.ÂA lot of times, as they get older, it really clicks,ÂŽ Mullen said. ÂYou see them coming on and they know exactly what theyÂre doing with their summer and exactly what theyÂre trying to work on with every aspect of their game. ÂAnd that takes years to develop. But thatÂs a program evaluation right there. You know what I mean?ÂŽThe Gators have had 12 starting quarterbacks since TebowÂs departure in 2010 Â„ John Brantley, Jeff Driske l, Jacoby Brissett, Trey Burton, Tyler Murphy, Skyler Morn-hinweg, Will Grier, Treon Harris, Luke Del Rio, Austin Appleby, Franks and Malik Zaire Â„ and none has proven to be a long-term solution for the teamÂs long-standing problem.Florida has ranked no higher than 83rd in total offense since the 2009 season, and finished six of those eight years ranked in triple digits.Mullen was hired, in part, to fix the teamÂs anemic offense. Franks or Trask is likely to get the first shot at making it happen. Jones is expected to be a situational, change-of-pace backup.ÂI do feel like IÂve made strides,ÂŽ Franks said. ÂAnd I think a big part has to do with just being more mature. When I first got here, I didnÂt know how to adjust from high school to college, just joking around, thinking everything (was) Âho, hoÂ.ÂItÂs fine to joke, but at the same time, you have to know when to be serious, when to not be serious. I think a lot of that has to do with maturity. When you get older, you know when to stop playing around. ThereÂs a time to watch film and thereÂs a time to be serious and joke around with your friends.ÂŽ GATORSFrom Page C1In this July 17 photo Florida head coach Dan Mullen speaks during the NCAA college football Southeastern Conference media days at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. [JOHN AMIS/AP PHOTO] passing for 3,350 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 58.8 percent of his passes. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound junior returned as the starter in 2017 but suf-fered a season-ending knee injury in the opener against Alabama.Francois was investi-gated for a pair of off-field incidents and took part in a diversion program for a misdemeanor mari-juana charge. Taggart said Francois has Âbeen doing everything we asked him to do,ÂŽ which included him moving back on campus and spending more time with teammates.He also spent much of the last year rehabilitat-ing from knee surgery. His mobility was limited during the spring, but Francois was a full go in practice Monday as he ran with a brace on his left knee. ÂIÂm in a better place,ÂŽ Francois said. ÂIt took a toll on me, being hurt, being out for the whole season.ÂŽ With Francois sidelined, Blackman stepped in last fall and became the first true freshman to start at quarterback at FSU since 1985. He threw for 2,230 yards, 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, with 10 touchdowns coming in during Florida StateÂs four-game winning streak at the end of the season.The 6-foot-5 sopho-more has worked diligently to add weight to his slim frame, adding nearly 20 pounds over the last year to his current weight of 178. Blackman joked on Monday, ÂI try to eat every second I can.ÂŽAll of the quarterbacks have had time to adapt to TaggartÂs offense, which features a no-huddle, two-minute philosophy.ÂI feel a lot more comfortable, knowing the things that we were going over in the spring,ÂŽ Black-man said. ÂI know them a lot better by doing them over the summer.ÂŽHockman is in the race but he will have to make up for the lack of game experience. The 6-2, 210pound redshirt freshman throws well on the run and Bell remarked that Hock-manÂs best four practices of the spring were FSUÂs last four, illustrating that with increased time on the field he was showing accuracy and understanding of the offense.ÂThey are all going to have an opportunity,ÂŽ Taggart said. ÂThey all understand that. That starts now. WeÂre in train-ing camp now and those guys understand they have got to go out and perform each and every day.ÂŽ FSUFrom Page C1By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressST. LOUIS Â„ The PGA Championship finally found its identity. ItÂs the one major where players are allowed to practice in shorts.They might not need to next year.This is the last year for the PGA Championship to be the final major. It will move to the middle of May and be held next year at Bethpage Black on Long Island. Based on the sweat pouring down faces Â„ and legs Â„ and drenched shirts Monday at Bellerive, next year will be a welcome reprieve.But itÂs not just the steamy heat of golf in August.The PGA Championship, which celebrates its 100th edition this year, is easy to get overlooked because it falls at the end of a busy schedule. Francesco Molinari, who opted for shorts on the first official day of practice, was hoist-ing the claret jug from his British Open victory just 15 days ago.Justin Thomas could barely relish his first World Golf Championship title Sunday at Firestone when it was time to prepare for his title defense in the PGA Championship.ÂI think it will be good for the vibe,ÂŽ Kevin Chap-pell said about the move to May. ÂIt limits the golf courses we can play, which could be good or bad depending on your taste. ÂThe Open being the last one wonÂt lose any pizazz because it stands on its own. But this being the fourth major, and the third one in the U.S., itÂs easily overlooked.ÂŽItÂs not unusual for players to go a week or two early to see Augusta National (mainly because they can), or the U.S. Open course. The roster of play-ers who took a side trip to St. Louis to see Bellerive is much smaller.Phil Mickelson and Zach Johnson were here early last week. Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka were among those who didnÂt have time. They went from Scotland to the Canadian Open to Ohio for the Bridgestone Invitational.Jordan Spieth took the week off after the British Open for his bachelor party in Spain.Spieth figured three days at a course should be enough for him or any other tour professional to know how to play a new golf course. His original plan was to play nine holes Monday, 18 on Tuesday and nine on Wednesday.He wound up playing a full round on Monday, stopping between nines to eat lunch and cool off. Temperatures were in the mid-90s with humidity pushing 60 percent.ÂYou can do this when you have an early tee time on Sunday,ÂŽ Spieth said, referring to his tie for 60th last week at the Bridgestone Invitational. He didnÂt have his best stuff last week and finished the final round in the early afternoon.Spieth gets his second chance to try to complete the career Grand Slam, achieved by only five others since the Masters was created in 1934. He figures one of these years, heÂll be in good form on a course that suits him, and Bellerive might be one of them.This is a new course for most of the 156-man field, including the 20 club pros.Only 15 players in the field have competed at Bellerive, either at the 1992 Championship or the 2008 BMW Championship. That doesnÂt include Tiger Woods. He was at Bellerive and even played the course in practice for the 2001 American Express Cham-pionship, which was canceled because of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He had knee surgery after winning the 2008 U.S. Open and missed the rest of the year.It shouldnÂt matter, for him or anyone else.Heat serves as mugy reminder of the nal PGA in AugustJustin Thomas holds the Gary Player Cup trophy after winning the Â“ nal round of the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament at Firestone Country Club, on Sunday in Akron, Ohio.

Â„ NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France announced Monday he was taking an indefinite leave of absence a day after his arrest in New YorkÂs Hamptons on charges of driving while intoxicated and criminal possession of oxycodone.France had a blood-alcohol content that was more than twice the legal limit, smelled of booze and slurred his words after he was seen blowing through a stop sign in Sag Harbor on Sunday, police said.ÂI apologize to our fans, our industry and my family for the impact of my actions last night,ÂŽ France said in a statement Monday. ÂEffective immediately, I will be taking an indefinite leave of absence from my position to focus on my personal affairs.ÂŽFrance has been NASCARÂs chairman and CEO since 2003. His uncle, Jim France, a vice chairman and executive vice president, will take over those roles on an interim basis.France, 56, was arraigned at Sag Harbor Village Justice Court after spending the night in jail. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court Sept 14.His lawyer referred reporters to a NASCAR statement on the matter. The organization said it takes FranceÂs arrest Âas a serious matter and will issue a statement after we have all of the facts.ÂŽFrance, 56, was pulled over and arrested at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday after police said they saw his 2017 Lexus roll through a stop sign near the Sag Harbor waterfront.His eyes were red and glassy and he struggled to keep his balance during field sobriety tests, police said. Tests showed FranceÂs blood-alcohol content was 0.18, police said. The legal limit in New York is 0.08.Officers found five oxycodone pills during a subsequent search, police said. TMZ first reported the arrest.France is a thirdgeneration leader of NASCAR. His late grandfather, Bill France Sr., founded the company in 1948.HeÂs introduced a playoff system, overhauled the design of its cars, and pushed for diversity within the circuitÂs predominantly white, male ranks.In recent years, heÂs been dealing with plunging attendance and TV ratings and departing sponsors, attributing the down turn to the challenge of connecting with a new, younger generation of fans.France last month characterized as ÂrumorsÂŽ reports that his family was looking into selling its racing properties.ÂThe France family is locked and loaded in its dedication to NASCAR,ÂŽ France told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. ÂWeÂre focused on ruling and managing NASCAR. ThereÂs nothing to report on that. Rumors are always interesting, but theyÂre seldom right.ÂŽFrance was involved in a 2006 incident in Daytona Beach, Florida, when a police report stated he crashed his Lexus into a tree after entering a restaurant parking lot.France later told an officer called to his home that he was drinking a soda and Âbumped into something.ÂŽBut a witness called 911 and gave police a statement that claimed she saw France driving at a Âvery reckless speed,ÂŽ and claimed FranceÂs car hit the tree after hitting a parked car. She said she also watched as France Âfell over his own feetÂŽ as he got out of his car.Her statement was not attached to the police report, and the Daytona Beach police chief later investigated whether France was given special treatment by authorities.
** The News Herald | Tuesday, August 7, 2018 C5Central Florida quarterback McKenzie Milton scrambles during the second half of the American Athletic Conference championship game against Memphis on Dec. 2, 2017, in Orlando, Fla. New coach and former Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel inherits a group that includes star quarterback McKenzie Milton, who is making sure the Knights enter this season with the right attitude. [JOHN RAOUX/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Steve MegargeeThe Associated PressCentral Florida is trying to follow up on its undefeated season with a new coach, a new defensive cornerstone and the same old high expectations.The Knights head the list of Group of Five teams with reason for optimism this season.UCF lost its coach when the lure of his alma mater prompted Scott Frost to return to Nebraska though he stuck around long enough to coach the Knights in a Peach Bowl victory over Auburn The Knights also must replace American Athletic Conference defensive player of the year Shaquem Griffin, who was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round.They still have plenty of firepower. New coach and former Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel inherits a group that includes star quarterback McKenzie Milton, who is making sure the Knights enter this season with the right attitude.ÂSay you come off a winning year, teams might tend to get lackadaisical in the way they approach things,ÂŽ Milton said. ÂThey might get com-placent. That canÂt be us. We caught some teams off guard in the way we played, the way we won last year. WeÂre not going to catch anybody off guard now. WeÂre going to get everybodyÂs best shot.ÂŽThe Group of Five refers to conferences that arenÂt part of the Power Five (the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and Southeast-ern Conference). It includes Conference USA, the MAC, the Mountain West and the Sun Belt, as well as the Ameri-can Athletic Conference.HereÂs a breakdown of top teams in each Group of Five conference heading into the season: Arkansas StateConference: Sun Belt Notes: The Red Wolves have earned at least a share of the Sun Belt title Â“ ve of the last seven years and are the preseason pick to win it again. Arkansas State had six Â“ rstteam preseason all-Sun Belt selections and quarterback Justice Hansen was named preseason offensive player of the year. Arkansas State went 7-5 last season and lost the Camellia Bowl in its seventh straight bowl appearance. Other Sun Belt teams to watch include defending co-champions Appalachian State and Troy.Boise StateConference: Mountain West Notes: MWC preseason offensive player of the year Brett Rypien has thrown for 9,876 yards, the highest total of any active Football Bowl Subdivision player. The Broncos also return Alexander Mattison, who ran for 1,086 yards and 12 touchdowns last season as Boise State went 11-3 with an MWC title and a Las Vegas Bowl victory over Oregon Boise State beat Fresno State in last seasonÂs MWC championship game, and those two teams Â“ gure to face off for the title again this year.UCFConference: American Athletic Notes: UCF owns a 13-game winning streak after ending last season as the lone unbeaten FBS team. UCF returns much of its offense from last season and is led by quarterback Milton, who Â“ nished eighth in the Heisman Trophy balloting last year. UCF Â“ gures to battle in-state rival South Florida for the East Division crown. The KnightsÂ nonconference schedule includes a trip to North Carolina and home dates with Florida Atlantic and Pittsburgh.Florida AtlanticConference: Conference USA Notes: Lane KifÂ“ n orchestrated a remarkable turnaround at Florida Atlantic last season. FAU went from 3-9 in 2016 to 11-3 in 2017 and closed the year on a 10-game winning streak that included a Conference USA title and Boca Raton Bowl victory Florida Atlantic has Conference USAÂs preseason offensive player of the year (running back Devin Singletary) and defensive player of the year (linebacker Azeez AlShaair). The schedule includes trips to Oklahoma and UCF.MemphisConference: American Athletic Notes: WeÂve included two teams from the American, which has emerged as the strongest of the Group of Five leagues. Memphis loses star quarterback Riley Ferguson and receiver Anthony Miller from a team that went 10-3 last season but Darrell Henderson is back after rushing for 1,154 yards and nine touchdowns a year ago. The Tigers Â“ gure to battle Houston and Navy for the West Division title. Memphis has only one game against a Power Five opponent, an Oct. 20 trip to Missouri.OhioConference: Mid-American Notes: Although Ohio has reached a bowl game eight of the last nine seasons, the Bobcats havenÂt won a MAC title since 1968 This could be the year. Ohio went 9-4 and won the Bahamas Bowl last year with an offense that averaged 37.4 points. Quarterback Nathan Rourke rushed for 21 touchdowns last season, while running back A.J. Ouellette ran for over 1,000 yards. Ohio and Northern Illinois look like the MACÂs top teams.Knights at full tilt SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFCHAPEL HILL, N.C.UNC: 13 suspended for selling school-issued shoesLess than a year after emerging from a long run of NCAA issues, North Carolina is dealing with rule violations again Â„ this time for football players selling team-issued shoes.The school announced Monday that 13 players will miss games serving suspensions for the secondary NCAA viola-tions, which will leave the Tar Heels shorthanded during much of the seasonÂs opening month. While secondary violations are generally considered less severe, the penalties in this case will result in several players being forced to sit out at least a third of the regular-season schedule.In all, nine players will miss four games, two will sit two games and two others will miss one contest. The NCAA approved a school request to delay two suspensions affecting multiple players at one position, while the other 11 suspensions begin with the Sept. 1 opener at California.DETROITOakland acquires pitcher Mike Fiers from TigersThe Oakland Athletics have acquired righthander Mike Fiers from the Detroit Tigers for two players to be named or cash.The Tigers announced the move Monday.The 33-year-old Fiers is 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA this season. The rebuild-ing Tigers picked him up before the season on a $6 million, one-year con-tract, and he pitched well enough that he became a candidate to be traded to a contender. Detroit wasnÂt able to work out a deal before the non-waiver trade deadline last week, but the Tigers have now sent him to an Oakland team that, if the season ended now, would be the American LeagueÂs second wild card.Fiers was with the World Series champion Astros last year, but he was not included on any of HoustonÂs postseason rosters.LOS ANGELESShaqÂs son to play basketball at UCLAUCLA has landed for-ward Shareef OÂNeal. The son of retired NBA great Shaquille OÂNeal signed a grant-in-aid to attend UCLA this fall. He will enroll in summer school this month.The 6-foot-10, 220-pounder from Los Angeles played the last two seasons at Crossroads High in nearby Santa Monica. As a senior last season, OÂNeal helped the school win the CIF Division II state title for the first time since 1997. He had 29 points, 17 rebounds and five blocks in the title game. OÂNeal averaged 27 points as a senior while Crossroads finished with a 25-9 record.UCLA coach Steve Alford says OÂNeal brings a Âterrific combination of size, skill and athleticism.ÂŽ By Schuyler DixonThe Associated PressOXNARD, Calif. Â„ Dak Prescott threw two interceptions just a few plays apart in a training camp practice, including an ill-advised pass across the field to a receiver just a few yards from the line of scrimmage.Those picks, and the decisions that go with them, are under more scrutiny after the Dallas CowboysÂ quarterback followed his remarkable rookie season with a somewhat pedestrian encore. And Prescott is among those doing the scrutinizing Â„ each night at camp in the film room.ÂWhen I go back, IÂm being super-critical of myself, of the throws, of the placement, of where I should have went with the ball,ÂŽ Prescott said Sunday. ÂIÂm tough on myself. So when I go back tonight, all of that was OK, itÂs got to better and this is why itÂs got to better. And I take my notes and I move forward.ÂŽWith the release of three-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant and the retirement of 15-year tight end Jason Witten Prescott is working with a revamped group of receivers and unproven batch of tight ends. The resulting rough patches for the passing game after a week and a half in California arenÂt surprising, but notable nonetheless considering how the offense usually appears to be ahead of the defense with the Cowboys this time of year.ÂThe best teams IÂve been on are where itÂs back and forth all day and everybody is just competing and battling and no one really dominates the whole day,ÂŽ coach Jason Garrett said. ÂThe other side competes back and challenges back and fights back. ThatÂs what weÂve had really throughout training camp.ÂŽ ThereÂs a reality facing Prescott, though. Two years ago, he set an NFL rookie record for passer rating and was voted the leagueÂs offensive rookie of the year for a team that finished with an NFC-best 13 wins. In 2017, the interceptions more than tripled (from four to 13), the passer rating dropped by almost 20 points and the Cowboys missed the playoffs at 9-7.Some will point to running back Ezekiel ElliottÂs six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations, which started halfway through the season just as Prescott and the Cowboys were looking good enough for another playoff trip.Others will remind of injuries that sidelined left tackle Tyron Smith for three games, a big reason the offensive line didnÂt live up to its reputation as one of the best in the league.Cowboys, Prescott working on pass game UCF seeks to deliver encore performance with new coachArkansas State quarterback Justice Hansen throws against Middle Tennessee during the Â“ rst half of the Camellia Bowl on Dec. 9, 2017, in Montgomery, Ala.
