By Katie Landeck522-5114 | @PCNHKatieL email@example.comPANAMA CITY BEACH Â„ As dead fish wash up on the beaches daily and beach-goers complain about a nagging cough and burning eyes, one question has become as omnipresent as the red tide.Is the red tide dangerous?Some, like Angela Wyman, have written to The News HeraldÂs Bay Asked, We Answered series with concerns about how it might impact those with asthma. Others have writ-ten with concerns about allergies.Corey Smith might have summed it up best with this question: ÂWe have a family vacation Â„ with a 5-year-old and 13-yearold Â„ coming. Is it safe to bring the kids? They love to be on the beach and water. Any tips?ÂŽTips will come later on, but first a basic explainer. Karenia brevis, the algae responsible for red tide in Florida, releases what local Dr. Frank Merritt described as a Âweak neurotoxin.ÂŽ It can cause paralysis in fish, he said, but for humans Â„ who unlike fish, for the most part only experience the aerosolized fumes Â„ itÂs not generally that bad.With the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) currently reporting medium concentrations along Panama City Beach, beach-goers can experience a cough, runny nose and watery eyes. Some stretches of the beach are going to be better than others depending on how much of the toxin is in the air from wave activity.The symptoms should go away when visitors leave Is red tide dangerous?

After initially sug-gesting a private conference call on the matter would suffice, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said his panel would hold a hearing next Monday Âto provide ample transparency.ÂŽHearing sets up dramatic showdown President Donald TrumpÂs Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in on Sept. 4 before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington.

TodayÂs Highlight in History On Sept. 18, 1975, newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst was captured by the FBI in San Francisco, 19 months after being kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army. On this date In 1793, President George Washington laid the cornerstone of the U.S. Capitol. In 1850, Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Act, which created a force of federal commissioners charged with returning escaped slaves to their owners. In 1851, the Â“ rst edition of The New York Times was published. In 1947, the National Security Act, which created a National Military Establishment and the position of Secretary of Defense, went into effect. In 1959, during his U.S. tour, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev visited Wall Street, the Empire State Building and the grave of President Franklin D. Roosevelt; in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly, Khrushchev called on all countries to disarm. In 1961, United Nations SecretaryGeneral Dag Hammarskjold was killed in a plane crash in northern Rhodesia. In 1970, rock star Jimi Hendrix died in London at age 27. In 1987, the psychological thriller ÂFatal Attraction,ÂŽ starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, was released by Paramount Pictures. In 1994, tennis star Vitas Gerulaitis, 40, was found dead in the guest cottage of a friendÂs home in Southampton, New York, of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. In 2001, a week after the Sept. 11 attack, President George W. Bush said he hoped to Ârally the worldÂŽ in the battle against terrorism and predicted that all Âpeople who love freedomÂŽ would join.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, September 18, 2018 A3The move forced Republicans to put off a planned committee vote for Thursday on Kavana-ughÂs nomination. The delay makes it increasingly difficult for Kavanaugh to win approval by Oct. 1, when the new session of the Supreme Court begins. It also sets up a public, televised airing of sexual misconduct allegations, reminiscent of the seminal hearings against Clar-ence Thomas in 1991, that could derail KavanaughÂs nomination altogether.Just hours earlier, top Repub-licans had shown no interest in a theatrical spectacle that would thrust Kavanaugh and Ford before television cameras with each offering publicÂ„ and no doubt conflicting and emo-tional Â„ versions of what did or didnÂt happen at a high school party in the early 1980s.Instead, Grassley had said heÂd seek telephone interviews with Kavanaugh and Ford, winning plaudits from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for plan-ning to handle the episode Âby the book.ÂŽ Democrats rejected that plan, saying the seriousness of the charges merited a full FBI investigation.Republicans had also dis-played no willingness to delay a Judiciary panel vote that Grassley had planned for this Thursday to advance the nomi-nation. But President Donald Trump telegraphed earlier Monday that that schedule might slow. He told reporters at the White House: ÂIf it takes a little delay, it will take a little delay.ÂŽIf the Judiciary committeeÂs timetable slips further, it would become increasingly difficult for Republicans to schedule a vote before the Nov. 6 elections, in which congressional control will be at stake.With fragile GOP majorities of just 11-10 on the Judiciary committee and 51-49 in the full Senate, Republican leaders had little room for defectors without risking a humiliating defeat of TrumpÂs nominee to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.Lee Penton and other Spring-field representatives guided students through how to vote as a commission, table topics for further discussion and what local government is responsible for.The students also gave sug-gestions on how to improve Springfield, including start-ing a recycling program and improving city streets.ÂMy idea I wanted to bring up that would be a benefit to everyone is fixing sidewalks and roads. The sidewalks and roads IÂve noticed are pretty old,ÂŽ Joanna Morris said. ÂTheyÂre cracked and can produce a risk for citizens. They can cause you to get hurt or potentially kill people.ÂŽDylann Serrano pitched building a homeless shelter since he has noticed a lot of homeless people, particu-larly veterans, in the past few years. The shelters could be rehab centers where people can sleep, eat and get medi-cation since some might be dealing with mental health issues.Veteran homelessness Âis not a good thing,ÂŽ Serrano said. ÂThey have done so much good for our country.ÂŽHammond and other city officials responded by talking about current improvements to city roads and sewer sys-tems and noted some of the topics were county, state and federal issues. Hammond also encouraged students to get more involved with local government and explained how local officials canÂt talk about city business unless itÂs at a public meeting.ÂFor normal citizens, your local city government is probably more important to you than the federal government. YouÂre the ones that come to us, as a commission, with ideas and suggestions and issues,ÂŽ Hammond said. ÂWe try to resolve them and take care of them. You live here. You set the rules. We donÂt. ... ItÂs very important the youth get involved in city government. YÂall going to be sitting up here one day, not us.ÂŽPenton told the students how cities can create specific laws through ordinances or resolutions, and said residents are affected by such things as water rates.ÂItÂs a huge responsibility youÂve got to take seriously,ÂŽ Penton said. ÂItÂs not that youÂre somebody special when youÂre up here (at the commission table). YouÂre a representative of the people.ÂŽ CITYFrom Page A1ÂMy idea I wanted to bring up that would be a bene t to everyone is xing sidewalks and roads.

** A4 Tuesday, September 18, 2018 | The News Herald NATION & WORLD DATELINESITOGON, PHILIPPINES PHILADELPHIACatholic dioceses sued over disclosure of allegationsParents of children in the Roman Catholic Church and survivors of sexual abuse by clergy filed a lawsuit Monday against PennsylvaniaÂs eight dioceses and their bishops asking a judge to compel them to release information about abuse allegations.The lawsuit filed Monday in Pittsburgh comes a month after a statewide grand jury report detailed sexual abuse allegations against more than 300 priests over decades in six of the stateÂs dioceses. The lawsuit alleges the dioceses havenÂt met their obligations to report child sexual abusers under state law.CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXASMan who survived mass shooting dies in car wreckAuthorities say a Texas man who survived a mass shooting during a video game tourna-ment last month in Florida has died in a car crash.The Texas Department of Public Safety says 25-year-old Ryen Aleman of Robstown was killed Sunday in a singlevehicle wreck near Corpus Christi.Aleman was among the participants at a Madden NFL 19 tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, last month when a fellow gamer opened fire, killing two people. At the time, Aleman told the Corpus Christi Caller Times newspaper that he crawled into a bathroom to escape the gunfire.PITTSBURGHWitness: Camel that hurt 7 spooked by thrown shovelA startled camel started bucking during a circus when a child apparently threw a shovel at its feet, injuring six children and an adult and causing frightened circusgoers to flee the arena.Two children and an adult were riding the camel during an intermission at the Shrine Circus at PPG Paints Arena when it became startled. Authorities say one child suffered a broken arm, while the injuries suffered by the others were considered minor.The incident, caught on video happened around 3:30 p.m. as people were buying rides on tethered camels, ponies or elephants led by handlers.LONDONUK police say no Novichok link to Salisbury mystery illnessBritish police said Monday that they donÂt know what made a man and woman sick at a restaurant near where former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned Â„ but it wasnÂt the nerve agent Novichok.Police officers and paramedics descended on the Prezzo restaurant in Salis-bury after a man and a woman became sick on Sunday evening. Roads were cordoned off as medics in protective suits investigated.The major response followed the March poisoning of Skri-pal, an ex-Russian spy, and his daughter Yulia, who were left critically ill. Two local people who came into contact with Novichok later also were poi-soned, and one of them died.HARRISBURG, PA.Bill CosbyÂs wife wants ethics board to investigate judgeDays before a court hearing that could send her famous husband to prison, Bill CosbyÂs wife intensified her attacks on a judge she has called Âarrogant,ÂŽ ÂcorruptÂŽ and Âunethical,ÂŽ and said the family had filed an ethics complaint and hired a former FBI agent to investigate him.Camille Cosby accused trial judge Steven T. OÂNeill of harboring a secret bias in her husbandÂs sex assault case because of his supposed grudge with a key pretrial witness. She traveled to Har-risburg, Pennsylvania, the state capital, with a Los Ange-les lawyer on Monday to file a complaint with the stateÂs Judicial Conduct Board.

[TAMAS KOVACS/MTI VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Claire GalofaroThe Associated PressFAYETTEVILLE, N.C. Â„ The river seethed a quar-ter-mile away, bulging from its banks, so the patrol cars circled the neighborhood three times.ÂGet out now,ÂŽ a voice boomed from a bullhorn. ÂThis is an emergency.ÂŽWaheeda Reese and her 14-year-old daughter, Anissa, were inside watching news reports about drowned towns all over the state and rain that hadnÂt yet stopped.ÂAll that water is going to come this way,ÂŽ Anissa said, trying to convince her mother it was time to leave. The city had taped a mandatory evac-uation notice to their front door, and a friend in the fire department had called to warn: ÂI donÂt want to have to come pick you up in a boat.ÂŽThey still had 22 hours until a deadline to go, and Waheeda wanted to stay. She pointed out the window and said, wishfully, ÂLook, I think the rainÂs letting up.ÂŽAs the days drag on, Hur-ricane Florence has taken this deceptive turn: The violent winds that rattled shingles off houses and tore down trees have subsided, and the pounding rain has eased, lull-ing many in the stormÂs path into believing theyÂve already weathered the worst of it Â„ even as rivers quietly churn and continue to rise.The storm has claimed at least 20 lives and an untold number of homes on its slow march across North Carolina, inundating city after city : Wilmington, New Bern, Lumberton. Now authorities are warning that by the time the Cape Fear River in Cumberland County crests Tuesday at 62 feet (19 meters) Â„ 27 feet (8 meters) over its flood stage Â„ it will threaten to swamp anything within a mile on either side of it. Its tributary, the Little River, is expected to flood, too.More than 7,000 people were ordered to evacuate by Sunday afternoon. But many, weary of a storm thatÂs lin-gered on and on, did their own rough calculus of the odds and decided to stay.As the Cape Fear River swelled, rescue teams trudged along its banks, pleading with people to get out of its way. Police officers went door to door. The mayor of Fayette-ville presented the problem in the starkest of terms: Evacu-ate or notify your legal next of kin.Military trucks in rural corners of the county bar-reled down dirt roads quickly becoming mud pits. ÂPlease go,ÂŽ soldiers asked stubborn residents along the massive river that curls downstream through small towns, farms and rural mobile home parks and into the city of Fayetteville, where the Reeses live in a subdivision that butts up against the bank.AnissaÂs friend down the street was evacuating with his family and knocked on her door, begging her and her mother to come. The Reeses had packed their things just in case, tucking important documents in a water-tight bag. They stacked chairs on top of tables and moved all the family photos upstairs. Then they waited to see what would happen.A few miles away, a high-water rescue team comprising two dozen soldiers from Fort Bragg rested on cots in an arena Â„ preparing for water to surge into neighborhoods and send residents climbing out windows and onto rooftops, a familiar scene since Florence made landfall Friday morning.ÂI want to make sure those citizens realize the decisions theyÂre making,ÂŽ said Lt. John Savage, who commands the team that knocked on doors to talk with those staying behind. ÂWe have thorough conversations with them to let them know the gravity of the situation theyÂre in.ÂŽOver the weekend, a military truck rolled down the mucky lane to Kevin BladesÂ house 20 miles (32 kilometers) upstream from Fayetteville, near where the Cape Fear and Little rivers meet. Savage said there is particular concern about this area. Six horses were drinking from flood-water already pooling on the front lawn. Power had been out for days. The dirt road to the house was so soggy, the truck got stuck in the mud and Blades and a neighbor had to tow it out.Blades informed the soldiers he planned to stay anyway and not to worry because he had an escape plan in mind. ÂIf I have to,ÂŽ he said, ÂIÂll ride the horses out of here.ÂŽThe soldiers left, the Blades played cards, the rain poured on, and the river rose.Down the road, in the tiny town of Linden, Mayor Marie Butler woke up Sunday morn-ing and asked her son to drive her to look at the Little River. SheÂd encouraged her resi-dents to leave, but just about everyone she knows decided to stay, so she felt like she had to stay, too Â„ to sound the alarm if the river gets close to spilling over.ÂIt didnÂt look that bad,ÂŽ she said.In Carolinas, a question: Stay or go?U.S. Coast Guard rescue swimmer Samuel Knoeppel, top, and Randy Haba, bottom left, talk to Willie Schubert of Pollocksville, N.C., as he is rescued from a rooftop Monday in Pollocksville.

The Associated Press By Paul Wiseman and Ken ThomasThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ Farmers worry about falling crop prices and lost sales overseas. Manufac-turers fear rising costs and new foreign taxes on their exports. American allies overseas are furious.By any conventional gauge, President Donald TrumpÂs uncompromising stance toward tariffs and the pain theyÂve begun to cause U.S. individuals and companies so close to midterm elections would seem politically reckless. Yet Trump appears to be betting that his combative actions will soon benefit the country and prove a political winner.Ditching decades of U.S. trade policy that he says swindled America and robbed its workers, Trump insists he can save U.S. jobs and factories by abandoning or rewriting trade deals, slapping taxes on imports and waging a brutal tariff war with China, AmericaÂs biggest trading partner.ÂPrior presidents in both political parties have never really moved to try to help and protect the American economy and its workforce, its farmers, its manufacturing work-ers, in a way of creating a level playing field,ÂŽ Larry Kudlow, the top White House economic adviser, told reporters last week. ÂThey give it lip service, and then they back off. This president has no intention of backing off. None. Zero.ÂŽTrumpÂs apparent belief is that he and congressio-nal Republicans can rely on the unswerving support of core GOP voters Â„ even in rural areas that have been economi-cally hurt by his trade disputes Â„ and maybe succeed in delivering better trade deals before Election Day. Still, as an insurance policy against failure, the administration is providing $12 billion in farm aid to soothe trade-war wounds in rural America.All told, itÂs a high-risk political gamble.ÂItÂs still unclear ultimately how the issue plays in November,ÂŽ said Nathan Gonzales, pub-lisher of Inside Elections, a nonpartisan newsletter.The U.S. and China have imposed import taxes on $50 billion worth of each otherÂs products in a rumble over American allegations that Beijing uses predatory tactics to acquire foreign trade secrets and to try to overtake AmericaÂs global supremacy in high technology. Over the weekend, news reports indicated that the administration is set to announce tariffs on $200 billion more in Chinese imports Â„ a step that that would significantly escalate the trade war between the worldÂs two largest economies. Beijing has said it would swiftly retaliate against additional U.S. tariffs.The gambler The Associated PressBEIJING Â„ One of ChinaÂs most prominent figures in global finance says Beijing should press Washington to end their tariff battle by clamping down on exports of goods needed by American companies, according to news reports Monday.The comments by Lou Jiwei, a former finance minister and chairman of ChinaÂs sovereign wealth fund, follow reports regulators are squeezing American companies by slowing down customs approvals and stepping up environmental and other inspections. Also Monday, an offi-cial newspaper called for more aggressive measures to Âmake American pain worseÂŽ following tariff hikes by both sides on $50 billion of each otherÂs goods.Beijing is considering WashingtonÂs invitation last week to revive talks on their fight over Chinese technology policy and plans for state-led development of global champions in robotics and other fields. Ameri-can officials say those violate BeijingÂs market-opening commitments and worry they might erode U.S. industrial leadership. Chinese o cial: Beijing should target goods needed by USBy Tim Croft227-7827| @PSJ_Star firstname.lastname@example.orgPORT ST. JOE Â„ Sky-borne Technology Inc., a designer and developer of manned and unmanned aviation and sea systems opened its first U.S. man-ufacturing facility last week at the county indus-trial park in Dalkeith.The opening capped several months of negotiations as the county sought first to secure full ownership of the industrial park, as was its due under an agreement with U.S. EDA, before finally finding a viable and stable company to enter into a lease agreement.And the payoff is esti-mated to be about 100 jobs created over the long-term in a growing sector of the worldÂs economy. ÂGulf County has been working with all the par-ties on this project for a matter of months,ÂŽ said Assistant County Administrator Warren Yeager. ÂWe are very excited to land a project of this magnitude that will diversify our local economy and fits the type of industry we are trying to attract.ÂŽSkyborne Technology, with facilities in Central America and South America, is at the cutting edge of aviation systems, designing and developing manned, i.e. tethered, and unmanned technology with under-water applications.Through a series of mergers, said CEO Mike Lawson, the company was able to assemble varying technologies, with the potential for integration, under one roof and process.In considering their products, Lawson said, conjure to the mind a mother ship in the air on a tether or extremely long line.That mother ship, in turn, contains any number of drones which can be deployed, in the air and underwater, for a variety of applications.A significant application is agricultural assessment, instead of relying on satellite images to detect insect or some other type of blight, the Skyborne technology can sharpen it down to near ground level.The technology also is used in assessing power grids and a host of monitoring applications.Lawson said the company also is working on applications to create a drone which would identify and eliminate Âbad dronesÂŽ which other companies and countries are developing.ÂWe have a number of great partners,ÂŽ Lawson said.As a smaller, but grow-ing company, relatively new to the sector, Skyborne is more flexible and cost-efficient than larger companies in the business, Lawson said.ÂThe uniqueness of our design is that weÂve com-bined multiple designs,ÂŽ Lawson said. ÂThe tech-nology is proven. It just needed to be organized into a company that can use that technology (at its potential).ÂŽ The company, Lawson added, Âreally wanted to be in Florida.ÂŽGov. Rick ScottÂs pro-motion of the aerospace and technology sectors was a strong factor and Gulf County provided an additional Âstrategic reasonÂŽ for locating a facility: plenty of water.A technology the company is developing is used for underwater applications.Additionally, much of the technology and systems Skyborne is developing also are part of the militaryÂs mission and a segment of that work is taking place down the road at Tyndall Air Force Base.ÂThere are a lot of things moving in this direction,ÂŽ Lawson said.Two other compelling strong factors pointed Skyborne to Gulf County, Lawson said.Area high school and college curriculums were beginning to integrate the technologies and skills the company would require from a workforce.Lawson added the company was likely to be heavily involved in a district public school proposal to create a drone program.Skyborne arrives in Gulf CountyDalkeith Industrial Park site of companyÂs rst U.S. manufacturing facility As midterms near, Trump rolls the dice on his hardline trade policy

Here are some of each in local news last week. A Brickbat for ... Red tide that is killing fish and eels and other marina life, fouling waters, fouling lungs and generally making life unpleasant for would-be beach-goers up and down the Gulf Coast. What had appeared to be a sporadic or spotty showing of the nasty Karenia brevis is having a larger affect on our area as fish kills and foul air persisted into this week.A Rose for ... Bay County and Panama City Beach workers tasked with cleaning up the smelly and unhealthy decomposing fish and marine life from along the beach each day. Reporters and residents who felt the bite of the Red tide in their lungs and noses can only imagine what it would be like to have to pick them all up for disposal.A Brickbat for ... Panama City police who days after the arrest of a local coach on DUI charges were adamant they could not produce and did not have a copy of the actual citation or arresting document.A Rose for ... Bay County Jail personnel who, after a few phone calls from a persistent reporter to different areas, ended up sending The News Herald the sought-after public document in multiple emails.A Brickbat for ... Hurricane Florence for the havoc it has wreaked and the deaths it has caused across the Carolinas, where many of us have family or friends. Here at The News Herald weÂve watched staffs at 10 daily sister papers in North Carolina including former News Herald reporter Chris Segal who is now executive editor over The Sun Journal and The Free Press.A Rose for ... ÂBigÂŽ Jim Downs, who three years into his recovery from methamphetamine addiction has already walked across the country once to raise awareness, and who is at it again. Downs is setting out Jan. 1 on a yearlong bicycle ride to every capitol in the lower U.S. in an effort to encourage others that they can beat addiction. It is one thing to talk about helping others, it another to act, and Big Jim has shown himself to be a man of action.A Rose for ... TRIUMPH which last week announced the dispersal of more than $700,000 in Bay County for education and job programs, the bulk of it a $615,000 grant to Tom P. Haney to update its HVAC training program. Funding also was awarded in for Gulf, Franklin and Santa Rosa county projects, like improvements to the Scipio Creek Basin boat yard and landing docks in Apalachicola that will Âimprove usability for the commercial shallow draft fishing fleet.ÂŽRoses and Brickbats A resurfaced Barack Obama has uttered those three little words: ÂMedicare for all.ÂŽ Does that mean that the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, was a bad idea? Not at all. The ACA was a triumph in that it cut the number of uninsured Americans by 20 million. And it hardened the idea that no American, regardless of income or pre-existing conditions, should suffer or die for lack of health coverage. Does the ACA have flaws? It does. But it serves as an important rung in the ladder toward less chaotic and universal health coverage. ÂMedicare for allÂŽ is a fairly vague term that could mean many things. How about Medicare Advantage for all? Medicare Advantage refers to the managed-care plans run by private insurers. Medicare pays them a monthly fee per enrollee to cover hospital care, visits to the doctor and other services guaranteed under the original Medicare. Many offer extras, such as eyeglasses and hearing aids. Sometimes they offer drug coverage. About a third of Medicare beneficiaries now choose them over the traditional fee-for-service program. Studies show that the enrollees are generally happy with their plans and the care is high-quality. Like other managed-care plans, these require using an insurerÂs network of providers. The rules vary, however. People can buy more expensive plans if they like Â„ or they can opt for a plan with virtually no out-of-pocket expenses. And there is some value added to private coverage, certainly at the point of delivery. The cap on the plansÂ funding provides a financial incentive to help people with chronic conditions navigate the health care system. The plans do a decent job of making sure that patients follow through on treatment. As for the politics of it, Republicans have long been boosters of the Medicare Advantage program. They like its reliance on private insurers. Medicare Advantage for all would steer conservative theorists away from their Âconsumer-orientedÂŽ pipe dreams Â„ those taxadvantaged health savings accounts, health reimbursement accounts and the like tied to catastrophic coverage. These schemes create an even more complex bureaucracy, all for the sake of some abstract notion of a Âfree market.ÂŽ LetÂs be blunt. The government must limit its spending by fiat. Then we can let the market step in and sort out the details. Under Medicare Advantage for all, the insurers would become, in effect, regulated utilities. As now, MedicareÂs overseers would have to keep an eagle eye on how they reimburse the companies. ThereÂs a history of paying Medicare Advantage insurers far more than they spend on medical care. The good news embedded here is that the Medicare Advantage plans can save money in ways the traditional fee-for-service program does not. And it needs repeating that people are signing up for them by choice. For younger Americans, the ACA is what they have at the moment. Republicans intent on killing it are dealing with the unpleasant reality that public opinion has swung from hostility to the reforms to support for them. Too chicken to do an outright repeal, Republicans are engaging in quiet sabotage, weakening its financial footing bolt by bolt. TheyÂre now trying to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions while saying theyÂre not. What to do now? Preserve the ACA and think Medicare for all. And while thinking that, consider Medicare Advantage for all. Follow Froma Harrop on Twitter @FromaHarrop. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.How About Medicare Advantage for All? Froma Harrop Navy In Dire Straits As a former Navy enlisted and Naval officer who served on 13 ships, including destroyers, radar pickets, aircraft carriers and auxiliary ships, I am concerned with the lack of readiness of the Fleet. Former Secretary of the Navy, John Lehman, under President Reagan, surged U.S. Naval power into Soviet Union ocean domains, and this helped to end the Cold War. A similar situation currently exists with China in the South China Sea, but we have too few ships available to patrol the area. The July 8, 2018 issue of USA Today--The Arizona Republic points out the dire condition of the Pacific 7th Fleet ships. It stated Âfrom 2015 to 2016 the pace of operations for 7th Fleet cruisers and destroyers increased 40 percent, from 116 days underway to 162 days.ÂŽ This is without any increase in ships and personnel, and it continues today. Starting in 1990 our Navy went from 600 to 283 ships today, and the missions have significantly increased during this time. A minimum of 300 ships are needed to project U.S. Naval power around the world, complete missions, and conduct safe operations. Probably an additional 50,000 Naval personnel are needed. Our Navy is in dire straits.Donald Moskowitz, Londonderry, New Hampshire Why arenÂt people smarter? Are people sooooo fundamentally stupid? Trump declares what a great job he did in Puerto rico. He is deranged and scary. That op-ed should scare us all. He calls Puerto Rico Âthat country.ÂŽ Makes me grit my teeth.Theresia Spraggins, Ebro LETTERS TO THE EDITORA story headlined ÂNew Panama City Beach ordinance requires neat property exteriorsÂŽ brought a bevy of comments from our fans on The News HeraldÂs Facebook Page, including the ones below.Beckie Salter Campbell: ÂI spend hours outside every Saturday in the heat to keep my place as nice as I can and IÂm pretty sure even I wouldnÂt pass this ridiculous ordinance. So happy I live outside the city limits of PCB and I will never vote to be annexed!ÂŽKaty Lingle: ÂIt wonÂt matter how you vote. They will do what they want to do. McConnell laid the groundwork during his campaign. The only way to prevent annexation is to vote them out of office this time and to make sure our friends, and neighbors, actually understand what is happening, and donÂt believe the hype sent by anonymous postcards. IÂm really disappointed in many people for the way they handled the last election. The entire city took a hit and many are clueless.ÂŽJudy Brackett: ÂWhen will the city council start taking care of US? Horrible traffic, deadlocked on your street in the summer. Hard to get from place to place for mailmen to deliver mail and God Forbid there is a medical crisis in any residential neighborhood. When will this get better?ÂŽTess Best: ÂI like this idea but until the Leave No Trace ordinance is fully enforced, no other ordinances should be imposed that will not be enforced.ÂŽKym Hart: ÂI tell you what, when PCB can maintain public leisure areas to code, then maybe they could impose on the taxpayer this ridiculous ordinance. Their people canÂt keep up with what they have now, much less adding another thing to their plate.ÂŽMelanie Mashburn Ponton: ÂNeatÂŽ is subjective to personal preference.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, September 18, 2018 A9the beaches, according to the Florida Department of Health.That being said, for some people the red tide is a bigger problem.ÂIt can be horrible if you have COPD, asthma or for anyone with a lung condition,ÂŽ Merritt said.Local Dr. Ikram Haq agreed that red tide is something people with conditions like asthma should be very cautious of, recommending people in that circumstance consult their physicians.If someone with asthma is going to a beach with red tide, they should bring their inhaler or other pre-scribed medicine.As for children, Haq said there isnÂt research showing younger people are more likely to suffer from the red tide, but Merritt said that personally heÂs letting his children off the hook for yard work this week and letting them stay inside away from the irritant.For people who are vis-iting the beaches, here are four tips to make the best of it.Â€ Over-the-counter antihistamines can help decrease the symptoms, according to the health department. Also, wear-ing a particle filter mask might lessen the effects.Â€ If you need a break, go inside, close the win-dows, and run the air conditioner, according to the health department. That being said, this would be the time to make sure that AC filter is maintained according to the manufacturerÂs specification.Â€ If there are dead fish in the water, FWC recommends against swimming on the particular stretch of beach. In addition to the gross factor, harmful bacteria is more likely to be near the dead fish. Also, swimming in red tide water can cause a burning sensation. Use common sense.Â€ If the red tide is really bothering you, there are other things to do in Panama City Beach away from the water, Merritt pointed out. He recom-mended go kart racing or shopping as alternative activities.At this time, there is no prediction for how long the red tide bloom, which is a naturally occurring phenomenon, might last. It could dissipate in days or it could last longer. FWC will issue its next report on Wednesday.

Wilson was second-in-command at the State AttorneyÂs Office, but resigned in 2016 to mount an unsuccessful run for state attorney against his former boss, Glenn Hess. Hess won the election by a 58 percent to 42 percent margin, and Wilson went to work as a defense attorney.About a year later, he was arrested after an investigation at the Bay County Jail regard-ing his actions with two of his clients.A last-minute motion to dis-miss by Anderson on Monday morning based on verbiage in an amended information filed by the SAO on Friday was denied by Judge Michael Overstreet and jury selection proceeded for much of the morning.Prosecutor Jack Campbell and Anderson took turns ques-tioning the prospective jury members, asking whether they knew or had contact before with anyone in the courtroom; had experience with the court Jury seated for Wilson trialWilson FOUNTAINCase of the missing brother is laid to restBay County SheriffÂs Office deputies who responded to a call for a welfare check during the weekend arrived to find that the complainant had not seen his brother in four days, and that was unusual.The man explained his concern centered on his 58-year-old brotherÂs medi-cal issues and the fact that he Âcannot move around very well.ÂŽThe man told deputies his brother had changed the locks to his house and no one else had a key, and that the back door, which usually was left unlocked, was locked. Also, his brotherÂs truck was there.The deputy assisted the man for about an hour Âknocking on the front and rear door of the homeÂŽ and then contacting all local hospitals.ÂDue for concern for his well being, entry was made through the rear door of the house,ÂŽ the deputy wrote. ÂA dog door was dislodged and we were able to unlock the door from the inside.ÂŽThe entry, the deputy noted, was made without damaging anything.ÂOnce inside the residence, contact was made with (the ÂmissingÂŽ brother) whom was sleeping in his bedroom,ÂŽ the deputy wrote. ÂHe apologized for the inconvenience and advised he is a hard sleeper.ÂŽDeputies put the case to bed.PANAMA CITY BEACHMan leaves motorcycle hidden, but K9 sniffs him outA Bay County SheriffÂs Office deputy on routine patrol Saturday experienced a real case of deja vu.The deputy reported that about 12:36 a.m. he spotted a blue-and-white motorcycle headed east in the 10,000 block of Front Beach Road that exactly matched a blue-and-white motorcycle he had seen traveling west on the same road several hours earlier, and which, in the first meeting, had fled from him and gotten away.The first meeting between the two came when the deputy clocked the motor-cycle traveling 75 mph in a 45 mph zone.This time the deputy was attempting to note and call in the motorcycleÂs tag number, but the driver kept slowing as the deputy sped up, and speeding up as the deputy slowed. So the deputy decided to go ahead and make a traffic stop, but the motor-cyclist had other ideas and fled. The driver headed east at a Âhigh rate of speed,ÂŽ exited to an unknown road at a high rate of speed refusing to stop. The motorcyclist then hit the intersection of Front Beach Road and Laurie Avenue and headed south at a speed fast enough that the deputy Âproceeded to terminate the pursuit,ÂŽ for safety reasons.THE BLOTTER By Tyra L.

According to the citation provided by the Bay County Jail, Watkins refused to submit to a blood-alcohol breath, blood or urine test and was booked into the Bay County Jail. According to jail records, he was released later that day.As per Bay District Schools policy, Watkins has been suspended with pay while the district addresses the issue through human resources, according to Superintendent Bill Husfelt.ÂWe do hold our employees to the highest of moral standards and we expect them to conduct themselves as role models for our students so any negative involvement with law enforcement, by any of our employees, is always very dis-appointing,ÂŽ Husfelt said in a statement.Watkins said Monday that he knows he has disappointed a lot of people, but as a coach charged with being a role model for his athletes, he was most disappointed in himself and he plans to apologize to every parent and player on his team.ÂI will be cooperating fully with both Bay District Schools and the court system as this process continues,ÂŽ Watkins said in a statement through the school district.

ÂItÂs our 70th year so weÂre gonna give some good prizes for things that deal with the number 70, like the 70th fish weighed and the first fish that weighs 70 pounds.ÂŽ Established in 1948, the Destin Fishing Rodeo has been a yearly tradition that always draws a huge crowd during the month-long competition held Oct. 1-31.ÂSometimes, we have anywhere from 200 to 900 people on the dock all during the month,ÂŽ Don-aldson said.So far, Donaldson esti-mates about 150 boats have registered for the rodeo. Boats and anglers must be registered at least one day before they are allowed to weigh a fish in at the rodeo, so Donaldson said you can register until Oct. 30. The rodeo is not just for charter or private boats. There also are divisions for pier or bridge fishing, jetty fishing, surf and shoreline fishing, kayak fishing and paddleboard fishing.If youÂre not a fisherman, you still can join in the fun.ÂThe rodeo is a spectator sport. ItÂs entertaining,ÂŽ Donaldson said.There will be giveaways, live entertainment pro-vided by AJÂs, fireworks to end each day, and archery and shooting exhibits from Bass Pro Shops. But the weigh-ins are the best part, Donaldson said.ÂThis is the first year in quite a while weÂve had amberjacks in the rodeo, and itÂs always fun to see those big fish hung up,ÂŽ she said.On Sept. 28, the rodeo will host its Reel Local Kick-Off Party at 6 p.m. at A.J.Âs featuring a wagon boat parade, a cookout and other family activities.Donaldson said she expects the weekend of the Destin Seafood Festi-val, scheduled Oct. 5-7, to be especially crazy.ÂItÂs kind of a circus, but itÂs a fun circus,ÂŽ she said.Destin Fishing Rodeo to begin Oct. 1The BillÂ“ sh Division is just one of many categories that anglers can enter in the Destin Fishing Rodeo. This year the Rodeo, which kicks off Oct. 1, is celebrating 70 years. [DAILY NEWS FILE PHOTOS] AJÂs Seafood and Oyster Bar on Destin harbor is home of the Destin Fishing Rodeo. The scales are open daily throughout October from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
** B4 Tuesday, September 18, 2018 | The News HeraldBut the deputy was able to keep the motorcycle in sight as other units headed to the area and he said the driver then took a left and disappeared into that area.ÂUpon arriving in the area I determined based on listening for the sounds of the motor-cycle he was still in the area on side streets north of Causeway Road,ÂŽ the deputy wrote.A short time later, ÂI observed him approach from behind me as he was traveling eastbound on Pine Street. Upon him spotting my patrol vehicle he proceeded to make a right hand turn onto Oakwood Street where he proceeded to abandon his motorcycle and attempt to cover it up with leaves as he intentionally laid it on its left side prior to fleeing on foot in a patch of woods between Oak-wood Street and Beech Street.ÂŽThe deputy was unable to find the driver in the dark, wooded area, so he called the Panama City Beach Police Department which sent an officer and K9. When the K9Âs presence was made known, the driver Âpro-ceeded to yell out his location just inside a heavily wooded area near the intersection of Oakwood Dr & Elm St at which point in time he surrendered and was taken into custody without further incident and placed in the rear seat of my marked patrol vehicle.ÂŽIn a jacket the man had left with the motorcycle, the deputy reported he found a small amount of marijuana and 26 prescription pills for which the man did not have a pre-scription. The man was charged with two felony drug offenses, misdemeanor possession of marijuana, driving without a valid motorcycle endorsement and fleeing and eluding a police officer. CALLAWAYVoice of (un)reasonA deputy responding to a trespassing complaint met with the caller at her residence.ÂShe stated she had gone out-side for just a minute and heard (her neighbor) calling from the area of her back yard,ÂŽ the deputy wrote. ÂHe was yelling that he could come on the prop-erty and there was nothing she could do about it. She did not physically see him on the prop-erty, but said he was at the back area of their property. She also said she recognized his voice.ÂŽThe woman was given a bro-chure and the deputy explains how to obtain an injunction for protection. BLOTTERFrom Page B12011 when she started riding. McNeal said she travels on State 77, U.S. 231 and other roads across the county. The farthest she has biked has been 101 miles.On her daily rides, she said she likes to jam to tunes such as LizzoÂs ÂGood as Hell.ÂŽ She said she bikes through black communities, where African-Americans can see her Â„ as a black woman Â„ on a bike.Her long-distance travels have prepared her for the trip to Burbank, which is more than 2,200 miles by bike. She said she hopes to reach the California city in no more than 30 days after she begins her trek across the country.ÂThereÂs always a man going cross country, why not a woman?ÂŽ McNeal said. ÂJust riding the bike helps me feel IÂm letting other black women know you can go a long way and be healthy. If I can ride a bike in Panama City, why not show people I can ride through different cities.ÂŽDuring her journey, McNeal said she plans to stay with family, friends and fellow cyclists who live across the country. She plans to carry a small book bag filled with peanut butter, raw foods, water and other items.McNeal said she doesnÂt ÂthinkÂŽ she can accomplish her goal, she ÂknowsÂŽ she can do it, and so does her husband, Tommie McNeal.ÂIÂm quite sure she can make it,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂm excited sheÂs attempting it. She had a stroke about five years ago, and she wanted to prove to people regardless of your physical situation, you can overcome your disabilities.ÂŽIn fact, it was Tommie McNeal who got his wife into cycling. HeÂs been cycling since the 1980s.ÂIÂve raced a bit. I do mostly recreational. ItÂs basically our way of life,ÂŽ he said. ÂI commute to work everyday on a bike.ÂŽMcNeal and her Trek Emonda bike will travel only to California. She said she doesnÂt plan to ride back to Panama City. ÂI hope to meet a lot more people, and help them realize life is short,ÂŽ McNeal said. ÂRide on.ÂŽMcNeal has set up a dona-tion center for her travel expenses.

ÂThis has been a difficult situation to work through but we commend the professionalism of our staff and our athletes and we appreciate the districtÂs support.ÂŽOn Friday night, Bay lost to the Arnold Marlins in a game at Tommy Oliver Stadium.Watkins was hired as the head football coach in 2016, replacing Jimmy Longerbeam.

ÂAnd no one is below the law?ÂŽ At the end of the selection process, an eight-person jury was seated for the trial.A ruling on Friday cleared the way for jurors to be shown a key piece of the stateÂs case Â„ a video shot in September 2017 showing Wilson apparently assisting two inmates, sisters Clista Robbins and Christy White, pass notes, or Âkites,ÂŽ while meeting with him at separate times in an attorney interview room. When ques-tioned under oath about his actions, Wilson categorically denied the allegations as Âabsolutely false,ÂŽ but at that time he was not aware of the video.Wilson could face up to five years in prison if convicted of the third-degree felony.

The victim said she had been touched Âbetween 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. that morn-ingÂŽ and identified Feitz as the person who allegedly came into her room, pulled down her underwear and molested her, according to the report.The victim also alleged there had been another incident in which Feitz allegedly hit her backside, hugged her from behind, touched her underwear and kissed her on the mouth.Investigators made con-tact with Feitz at his home, and he declined to speak with them.Feitz is a podiatrist with offices in Panama City and Marianna as Feitz Foot Clinic.DEFUNIAK SPRINGSLarge Â“ re consumes DeFuniak homeFirefighters from Walton County Fire Rescue, Argyle Volunteer Fire Department and Liberty Volunteer Fire Department extinguished a massive residential fire Monday afternoon in DeFuniak Springs.Just before noon, Walton County Fire Rescue crews responded to a 911 call about a fire at 153 Wits-End Lane, according to the fire department.Firefighters and paramedics arrived to find flames engulfing a large brick home.For more than four hours, Walton County and Liberty firefighters assisted Argyle crews in fighting the flames.

Adam Gruler of failing to intervene to stop the June 12, 2016, massacre.Authorities said Gruler, who was working an extra-duty shift, fired at Omar Mateen from two locations outside Pulse, but didnÂt pursue him inside.The lawsuit claims that it was Gruler's job to go inside the club to ÂneutralizeÂŽ the shooter even though it would have risked his life.A motion filed Friday by lawyers for Gruler and the city argues GrulerÂs reac-tion to the violence doesnÂt constitute a violation of the victimsÂ right to due process.TALLAHASSEEGeneral election ballots to start going out The first ballots of Flori-daÂs Nov. 6 general election will be in the mail by Satur-day, according to the state Division of Elections.The Saturday deadline applies to county elections supervisors sending vote-by-mail ballots to uniformed service members who are absent overseas or stateside and to civilian voters who are overseas.The initial window for supervisors to get the first ballots in the mail to other voters is from Oct. 2 to Oct. 9.The last day a voter can request that supervisors send a vote-by-mail ballot is Oct. 31.

** B6 Tuesday, September 18, 2018 | The News Herald The Associated PressGULF OF MEXICO Â„ Federal government lawyers say a 14-year-old leak is releasing much more oil each day into the Gulf of Mexico than officials previously claimed, and it might be getting worse.A Friday court filing in a case involving Taylor Energy Co. says 10,000 to 30,000 gallons daily is leaking from multiple wells around a drilling platform toppled by 2004Âs Hurricane Ivan.That estimate if far above the 16,000 gallons of oil that the U.S. Coast Guard estimated in 2015 had been spotted in slicks over seven months.The government cites a report it commissioned from a scientist who has studied satellite images of persistent oil slicks and sampled floating oil at the site about 10 miles offshore. That report also suggests that while the amount of leaking oil decreased after some wells were plugged in 2011, the leak might be getting bigger again.ÂThere has been an uptrend of the areas of the slick during the last two years,ÂŽ wrote Oscar Pineda-Garcia, who runs a company that maps oil spills and is an adjunct professor at Florida State University.New Orleans-based Taylor said only 2 to 3 gal-lons was leaking daily out of mud on the seafloor. Spokesman Todd Ragusa said the company disputes the governmentÂs new estimate and will respond in court.ÂThe governmentÂs recent filing is completely contrary to the comprehensive, sound science acquired by world-renowned experts, including those regularly relied upon by the government,ÂŽ Ragusa wrote in an email to The Associated Press. A 2015 AP investigation revealed evidence that the leak was worse than the company, or government, had publicly reported during their secretive response. Presented with APÂs findings that year, the Coast Guard provided a new leak estimate that was about 20 times larger than one cited by the com-pany in a 2015 court filing.FridayÂs court filing also says Taylor and the Coast Guard met in August and discussed plugging more wells as part of an effort to eliminate the persistent oil sheen seen at the site. The wellheads are more than 400 feet underwater and buried under 60 to 100 feet of mud.Taylor sued the govern-ment in January 2016 to recover millions of dollars it set aside for work to end the leak. The suit claims regulators violated a 2008 agreement requiring the company to deposit approximately $666 mil-lion in a trust to pay for leak response work. The company argued the gov-ernment must return the remaining $423 million. The governmentÂs lawyers disagree, though, saying no change to the agreement has been made and the money should remain on deposit until the work is done.ÂThe trust requires Â„ and has always required Â„ that Taylor complete all of its decommissioning obligations before the trust can terminate. The United StatesÂ denial of TaylorÂs request for a release from its existing obligations does not con-stitute an imposition of a new obligation,ÂŽ the lawyers wrote.Federal lawyers: Gulf oil spills worse than thoughtThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ Democratic agriculture-commissioner candidate Nikki Fried and other state Cabinet candidates from both parties want to see federal banking changes that could lead to Florida financial institu-tions being open to people and businesses with ties to the medical-marijuana industry.But FriedÂs proposal for a state-created bank to handle the burgeoning industryÂs money has little support from other candi-dates who could be part of the next Cabinet.Fried, an attorney and medical-marijuana lobby-ist from Fort Lauderdale, has made revamping regu-lations about the cannabis industry and banking a high-profile issue because of difficulties she has had in securing a bank for her campaign account.Fried said as a Cabinet member she would lobby the federal government to enact laws that would protect banks that handle money tied to marijuana. She also would advocate that the stateÂs top financial regulator, who is overseen by the Cabinet, maintain an Âopen doorÂŽ policy for banks handling marijuana money. Also, she said she would urge fellow Cabinet members to charter a bank that could handle the money.ÂWe can start a state bank. That is something I have been proposing as well, a national state-bank that is controlled by the Cabinet that we can take dollars from compa-nies and have it housed in one location,ÂŽ Fried said during a conference call last week in which she was joined by former Gov. and Congressman Charlie Crist, D-Fla.Fried said a state-backed back would be better positioned for Florida law-makers to provide defense from Âany actions on the federal level.ÂŽFriedÂs call came as twice in the past two months her campaign account been bumped from national banks, first by Wells Fargo, then by BB&T.Florida voters in 2016 approved a constitutional amendment that broadly legalized medical mari-juana. While Florida is one of about 30 states with such legalization, cannabis remains illegal on the federal level. As a result, financial institutions have been reluctant to put themselves into a position where they can be accused of laundering drug money.ÂThese banks are placing limits on access to medical marijuana and limits on the care Floridians can receive,ÂŽ Fried argued.FriedÂs Republican opponent for agriculture commissioner, state Rep. Matt Caldwell of North Fort Myers, has a different plan to address medical-marijuana issues.Caldwell wants to move the Office of Medi-cal Marijuana Use from the Florida Department of Health to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The winner of the CaldwellFried race in November will head the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services for the next four years. ÂI am advocating for the largest role possible for the commissioner in order to see the medical cannabis program instituted and developed consistent with the law and Florida Consti-tution,ÂŽ Caldwell said.Asked about the state establishing a bank to handle the interests of businesses tied to medical marijuana, Caldwell said businesses have been using state-chartered banks Âto solve this challenge in the free market.ÂŽ Private banks can be state chartered or federally chartered.Caldwell also said he would continue to support a proposal by Congressman Matt Gaetz, a Republican from Fort Walton Beach, that would Âdown-sched-ule cannabisÂŽ which is now considered by the federal government like heroin and cocaine.ÂThis would also ease the challenges for outside industries, such as bank-ing,ÂŽ Caldwell said.Democrat Jeremy Ring, a former state senator running for state chief financial officer, was the only major-party Cabi-net candidate who backed Fried in setting up a state-chartered bank to handle medical-marijuana money. However, Ring would place a caveat on how the financial institu-tion is run.Candidates want federal changes on pot banking
** The News Herald | Tuesday, September 18, 2018 B7ARIES (March 21-April 19) Â„ Emotional bumpers can go up like air bags, preventing injury but also closeness. These protective cushions have their drawbacks and need only be employed in extreme situations.TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Â„ You and yours will agree about the big-picture items though there will be some major differences of opinion on the topic of how to go about bringing that vision to life. Luckily, itÂs a fine day for finding compromise.GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Â„ For complicated reasons, youÂre more easily unsettled today than most days. While thereÂs nothing wrong with this, it could be uncomfortable for you. Consider buffering your emotional core with extra self-care and kindness.CANCER (June 22-July 22) Â„ Creativity takes courage. By definition, itÂs doing something new, which means uncertainty, which is the birthplace of fear. Give yourself credit for your creative bravery.LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)Â„ You like to think of yourself as spiritually more evolved than a lot of the ego-gratificationbased desires that people around you seem to be chasing. And yet a certain status symbol still appeals to you. Embrace it. YouÂre human.VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)Â„ This represents a window of time when you feel strongly about your choices. Next week youÂll see other options and even more open up after that. In this light, flexible and shortterm contracts are favorable.LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)Â„ ItÂs one of those days in which it will be easy to tell others what to do and hard to implement your own plans for your life. Therefore, skip the former and focus all of your energy on the latter, where it will do the most good.SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)Â„ Sometimes you get to live life on your own terms. Enjoy it fully, realizing that, as a rule, life (being considerably bigger than any individual) doesnÂt make a habit of acquiescing to any particular person.SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)Â„ How do you know whatÂs true? ThatÂs the question of the day, and youÂll be sure of many true things by sundown. One test of truth: It remains unchanged by weather or moods.CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)Â„ YouÂre really trying to be better than you were yesterday in one particular regard, and you will be. Trust that it happens naturally, whether you try so hard or not.AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Â„ YouÂll stand and face a thing. ItÂs a small bit of unpleasantness you could have easily blown off, but you wonÂt. And this minor act of courage speaks to something major about your character. YouÂre a quality person.PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)Â„ As the sign that rules the feet, you realize the importance of being where your feet are. And as the sign of imagination, you donÂt always follow the dictum, but youÂll bring yourself fully to the present moment when it counts.HOROSCOPES DIVERSIONSÂTrivia FunÂŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

It started with the last presidential election. Since then, I have cut way back on politics because he doesnÂt want to hear any of it. Being an activist on several fronts, including politics and other areas, this is a big, emotional part of who I am. I get so upset by his silences that I stop talking to him completely. IÂm spent from feeling so lonely, so unworthy of love, helpless, hopeless and powerless. I canÂt take this much longer. He says he wants to be with me, and he has just started private therapy. I, too, am in therapy. I was ready to draw up divorce papers when I suddenly changed my mind. I told him IÂd wait a year for him to have his therapy, and then weÂd review everything we had learned and proceed from there. Have I made a mistake? Right now, I canÂt stand to be around him. He can be the worldÂs greatest giver, but other times heÂs a selfish, insensitive, arrogant know-it-all. I donÂt know if IÂm still in love with him. Does this proposed one-year respite have any chance of working? Â„ SAD WIFE IN BUFFALODEAR WIFE: Yes, it does. It appears that in the midst of your pain and turmoil you experienced a brief moment of clarity. Your decision to give your husband Â„ and yourself Â„ a year of therapy and then revisit the issue of divorce was both wise and brilliant.

** The News Herald | Tuesday, September 18, 2018 C1 SPORTS FOOTBALL | C4AS KICKERS STRUGGLE, RAMS GO FOR TDS, 2-POINT CONVERSIONS By Mitch StacyThe Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Â„ Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he has sent letters and had conversations with families of players as a key step toward containing and repairing the scandal that led to his three-game suspension, a saga he describes as Âa window in time I made an error.ÂŽHe acknowledged Monday that the programÂs reputation has suffered and said he hopes more clarity about what happened will help mitigate the damage.In what normally would have been a press conference about the weekÂs football game, the Ohio State coach met for nearly an hour with reporters who questioned him about his mismanagement of fired assistant Zach Smith and his resulting suspension after a university investigation. ÂI think there was,ÂŽ Meyer said when asked whether the program was damaged. He said the letters and talks with families of players were to assuage concerns that he turned his back on domestic violence allegations.ÂThe damage, I believe, is that we just went through a really hard time, and I made a mistake in helping a troubled employee, went too far in trying to help someone,ÂŽ Meyer said.Beyond his players, MeyerÂs explanations and actions have ramifications with potential recruits. Four-star linebacker Kane Patterson from Tennessee already rescinded his Meyer moves toward xing damageBy John ZenorThe Associated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. Â„ Nick Saban didnÂt use the term Ârat poisonÂŽ this time but he still wants Alabama players to ignore the hype surrounding them after three straight blowout wins.The top-ranked Crimson Tide (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) has won its first three games by a collective 170-28 score heading into SaturdayÂs visit from No. 22 Texas A&M (2-1, 0-0).That includes a 62-7, come-from-behind win after Mississippi scored on the first play to create the most adver-sity the Tide has faced on the field. It lasted less time than one of SabanÂs famed rants.The Aggies are likely the best team Alabama has faced, but the Tide is still favored by 26 points. After a 27-19 win over Texas A&M two years ago, Saban said the steady diet of hype and praise heaped on his players by the media was Âlike rat poison.ÂŽ On Monday, he talked about maintaining Âa stan-dard of excellenceÂŽ whatever outsiders are saying.ÂItÂs like climbing a mountain,ÂŽ Saban said. ÂThe higher you go, the more chal-lenging it gets and the greater the focus needs to be and the more treacherous it can be. ÂThis is the best team weÂve played so far, so hopefully weÂll be able to continue to improve and have the right focus. So I guess in a different way, trying to be really diplo-matic, IÂm sort of saying the same thing.ÂŽDiplomacy aside, the first three games werenÂt competitive enough to keep the second-teamers in Alabama aims to stay groundedIn this Sept. 1, photo, AlabamaÂs Josh Jacobs (8) celebrates his 77-yard touchdown run against Louisville with teammates including wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (4) during the second half of an NCAA college football game, in Orlando, Fla. [ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] Willie Taggart walked into the room, took a nervous swig of water and did his best to get his flailing program back on track. The words had clearly been swirling around in his head for the past 48 hours, since another dismal performance by the Florida State Seminoles. He even jotted them down on paper, to make sure he didnÂt forget anything. ÂOur fans have every right to have high expectations of our program, and I can assure you that no one has higher expectations than I do,ÂŽ Taggart said Monday, his eyes focused firmly on the notes in front of him. ÂWe have a proud history and tradition of football at FSU, and this is on our shoulders to carry on the torch. Our fans, students, alumni and former players deserve a team that plays better than what we have so far this season.ÂŽ Taggart has been the coach in Tallahassee for all of three games. More than enough time, it turns out, to look hopelessly overmatched in his new post. Now, it seems only a matter of time before the Seminoles are forced to move on from this trainwreck of a personnel decision. The only questions are how much it will cost them in the end, and how much damage will be left for the next coach to clean up. Actually, one more question should be asked: Why did Florida State think Taggart was qualified to run such a high-profile program? He had coached only one season at a Power Five school, leading Oregon to a rather ordinary 7-5 mark in the weak Pac-12 FSU in big trouble just 3 games into Taggart era P a u l N e w b e r r y Paul NewberryMeyer Florida State head coach Willie Taggart looks at the scoreboard late in the fourth quarter of an NCAA college football game Sat urday against Syracuse in Syracuse, N.Y.

It was WardÂs 14th career game and the home run was his Â“ rst in the major leagues. The Brewers won the game in a bottom of the ninth on a two-out, two-run home run by Gorman Thomas. 1984: MontrealÂs Tim Raines became the Â“ rst player in major league history with four consecutive seasons of 70 or more stolen bases by swiping four in thee ExposÂ 7-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. 1996: Roger Clemens equaled his own major league record, fanning 20 batters and pitching a four-hitter to lead Boston over the Detroit Tigers 4-0. 2006: The Los Angeles Dodgers hit four consecutive homers in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game and Nomar GarciaparraÂs two-run homer in the 10th lifted Los Angeles to an 11-10 victory over the San Diego Padres. It was the fourth time a team hit four consecutive homers and the Â“ rst since May 2, 1964, when the Minnesota Twins accomplished the feat against Kansas City in the 11th inning. 2012: Dusty Baker reached another milestone in his long career when he managed his 3,000th game, guiding the Cincinnati Reds against one of his former teams, the Chicago Cubs. Baker, who had a 1,572-1,426 record before the game, also managed one tie in 2002.

** conference before returning to his native state to lead an Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouse, or the remnants of one. Before that, he went a combined 40-45 in seven seasons at Western Kentucky and South Florida. In light of his less-thanimpressive resume, maybe itÂs not all that surprising that Taggart is off to a 1-2 start with the Seminoles, but this goes beyond the obviously disappointing record. The Seminoles have looked dysfunctional, confused, disorganized and poorly coached in blowout losses to Virginia Tech and Syracuse, and even in a way-too-close victory over FCS school Samford. TaggartÂs performance at his weekly news conference provided little reason to believe he can turn things around. The way he made it sound, his players have no idea what theyÂre trying to do or what the coaches want them to do. ÂWeÂve got to evaluate every day how weÂre coaching and what message weÂre taking to our guys,ÂŽ Taggart said. ÂAs coaches and as teachers, youÂve got to find ways to get to your players, so they can do exactly what you ask them to do. As coaches, weÂve got to be smart and make sure weÂre not over-coaching. ItÂs about making sure our guys are comprehending what we need them to do and understanding why weÂre doing certain things.ÂŽ Of course, these were lessons that shouldÂve been instilled back in spring practice and all through summer workouts and on into preseason camp. This is not the time for on-the-job training. In a season-opening 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech the Seminoles failed to score a touchdown at home for the first time in almost a decade. They turned it over five times. They had a blocked punt returned for a touchdown. They missed a field goal. Deondre Francois was sacked five times. There were all sorts of sloppy penalties, ranging from false starts to illegal formations. In the second half, the SeminolesÂ offense was downright offensive. Outside of an 85-yard run by Cam Akers that produced the lone first down of the final two quarters, Florida State ran a grand total of 20 plays on its seven possessions for a loss of 5 yards. The result of those drives (using that term very loosely) Â„ four punts, two interceptions and a fumble. The following week, Florida State needed a fourth-quarter rally to escape with a 36-26 victory over Samford, a private school with fewer than 6,000 students that competes in the Southern Conference. The SeminolesÂ defense was gashed for 525 yards, but managed to hold on thanks to five turnovers. No one thought for a minute that Taggart had righted the ship. That was certainly apparent this past Saturday. Hitting the road for the first time, Florida State was dominated again, 30-7, by a Syracuse team that hasnÂt had a winning season since 2013 The Seminoles gained just 240 yards and barely avoided being shut out by a defense that was torched for 42 points by Western Michigan two weeks earlier. The Orange sacked Francois four times, deflected a couple of passes and spent most of the day poring through an offensive line that seemed to think it was illegal to touch an opposing player. Not that the Seminoles didnÂt spend a lot of time doing illegal things, finishing with 11 penalties for 90 yards. Through three games, Florida State has been flagged a total of 27 times Â„ the surest sign of an undisciplined team in desperate need of some topnotch coaching. Florida StateÂs start has even sparked questions whether Taggart could be one-and-done, but that seems highly unlikely given it would take a reported $21.2 million to escape his contract. In fairness to Taggart, former coach Jimbo Fisher knew what he was doing when he bolted for Texas A&M. This program has been a state of decline since its 2013 national championship, culminating with last seasonÂs mark of 7-6 overall and 3-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. But no one expected the Seminoles to sink this low. Wrapping up his news conference, Taggart appeared to go off script in one more attempt to rally the troops. ÂOnce again,ÂŽ he bellowed, not so much for the room of reporters but those watching the live stream, ÂI believe in this football team, and I believe theyÂre going to get it right. WeÂre all going to get it right. Hang in there with us. Go Noles!ÂŽ Was anyone buying it? Doubtful. Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at firstname.lastname@example.org or at www. twitter.com/pnewberry1963. His work can be found at https://apnews.com/ search/paul%20newberry.commitment to Ohio State since Meyer was suspended.Meyer reiterated his contention that he didnÂt ignore or cover up domestic abuse allegations against Smith, who was fired in July. Smith denies abusing his wife, Courtney Smith, and was never charged or prosecuted for domestic violence. Meyer said his mistake was not asking more questions about their situation and instead trying to help Zach Smith keep his job so he could continue to support his family.He also again denied lying to reporters about his knowledge of 2015 allegations against Smith, saying that he Âmisspoke.ÂŽ Ohio StateÂs investigative report found that Meyer intended to keep details of SmithÂs troubles private when asked by reporters.ÂIÂm going to keep saying if for the rest of my life, this was about trying to help an employee with work related issues. It was not about lying to the media,ÂŽ Meyer said.Meyer was asked about memory issues cited by the report as a reason why he might not have remembered specific conversations. He said heÂs had some medical issues that required some Âpretty heavy meds at time,ÂŽ but said ÂIÂm very healthyÂŽ and none of those issues would affect his running of the program. throughout much less the starters. The greatest risk for rat poison might be the scores themselves, not the outside buzz.Alabama leads the nation in scoring after routs of Louisville (51-14), Arkansas State (57-7) and Ole Miss. The Tide is the first SEC team to score 50-plus points in each of its first three games. No Alabama team has put up 50 three times in a row since 1945. Now, the key is staying grounded with presumably much tougher challenges ahead, including the Aggies plus road games against No. 6 LSU and No. 14 Mississippi State and a visit from No. 9 Auburn.ThatÂs where Saban comes in, reminding his players that Âthe standard of excellence cannot be affected by outside voices in terms of your preparation, your intensity, the level of focus you need to have.ÂŽTailback Damien Harris, who has just 24 carries thanks to the lopsided games, says itÂs Ânot very hardÂŽ to avoid getting overconfident.ÂI guess because we know that at the end of the day, what-ever team weÂre playing is going to give us their best game,ÂŽ Harris said. ÂItÂs not going to do us any good believing how good everybody says we are or buying into the media because thatÂs the quickest way to get disappointed.ÂŽIn other words, listen to Saban, not the outside world. Or the rat poison.Cornerback Trevon Diggs says the coach might be tougher on the team after wins than after losses and always finds things they can do better.Diggs does think this Alabama team is doing a good job so far of staying levelheaded.ÂWe canÂt get complacent with ourselves,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou always got to want more, want to do better. This team does a great job of that. We always think about one game at a time, 1-0. One game at a time, one game a time.ÂŽ The News Herald | Tuesday, September 18, 2018 C3 MEYERFrom Page C1 TAGGARTFrom Page C1 ALABAMAFrom Page C1

Vikings cut Carlson after 3 missed FGsThe Minnesota Vikings have waived rookie kicker Daniel Carlson, after the fifth-round draft pick pulled all three of his field-goal attempts wide right at Green Bay.Two of CarlsonÂs misses came in over-time on Sunday, forcing the Vikings to settle for a 29-29 tie with the rival Packers. Carlson was promptly cut on Monday, as the Vikings signed wide receiver Aldrick Robinson.The Vikings didnÂt immediately add a replacement for Carlson, but coach Mike Zimmer confirmed theyÂve invited free agent Dan Bailey to Minnesota for a physi-cal exam.PHILADELPHIACarson Wentz cleared to return for Eagles HeÂs back.Carson Wentz has been cleared to return and is slated to start for the Philadelphia Eagles against Indianapolis in Week 3.Wentz tore his left ACL and LCL on Dec. 10, 2017 in a game against the Los Angeles Rams and had surgery three days later. Backup quar-terback Nick Foles led the Eagles to their first NFL title since 1960 and was Super Bowl MVP in the 41-33 victory over New England.Foles embraced his role from the start and wanted to return to the Eagles this season instead of seeking a starting opportunity elsewhere. SUNRISEBarkov takes over as captain of PanthersAleksander Barkov is the new captain of the Florida Panthers.Barkov is taking over for forward Derek MacK-enzie, who held the role for the last two seasons. The 23-year-old from Finland becomes the 10th player to be designated as FloridaÂs captain. The Panthers made the announcement Monday, with general manager Dale Tallon saying the decision to turn the cap-taincy over to Barkov was about Âturning this team over to our young core.ÂŽBarkov is entering his sixth NHL season. He is coming off the best year of his career, with 27 goals and 51 assists for 78 points in 79 games. The Associated PressIN BRIEF By Barry WilnerThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ Who needs a kicker? Apparently not the Los Angeles Rams.As for the Browns and Vikings, who are going with untested young-sters, well, maybe a new guy to handle field goals and extra points will be employed soon.Sure, itÂs kind of early to panic about placekicking. The Rams showed how to not rely on placements once Greg Zuerlein went out Sunday with a groin problem. They simply scored touchdowns and then went for 2-point conversions, making three.Still, when itÂs early in the schedule and kickers are struggling Â„ there were seven missed PAT kicks Sunday afternoon Â„ despite generally decent con-ditions, thatÂs troubling.Minnesota rookie Daniel Carlson twice went wide right on overtime field goals and the Vikings tied top NFC North rival Green Bay 29-29. Even though Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a career high with five field goals, his potential winner from 52 yards went wide left as time expired in regulation.ItÂs rarely wise to play for field goals, particu-larly when you have the two highest-paid quar-terbacks in the league, Aaron Rodgers and Kirk Cousins. But circumstances sometimes dictate not gambling. In Green BayÂs case, that pretty much paid off thanks to the veteran Crosby.Not so much for Minnesota as Carlson missed from 49 and 35 yards in OT. He also failed from 48 in the second quarter.ÂI think I went out each time and it was a new kick,ÂŽ said Carlson, who was pretty sure heÂd never miss three field goals in a game. ÂWent out there confident, but something obviously was off and IÂve got to fix that and help this team.ÂŽ As kickers struggle, Rams go for TDs, 2-point conversions
