Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 1, 2018 SETH MEYERS JIMMY FALLON SETH MEYERS STEPHEN COLBERT JIMMY FALLON STEPHEN COLBERT JIMMY FALLON SETH MEYERS JIMMY FALLON SETH MEYERS JIMMY FALLON The 16 percent WASHINGTON Pub lic reaction in the United States to President Trumps summit meeting with the Russian president was overwhelmingly negative with one major exception. Sixty-six percent of Re publicans thought Trump did a good job in Helsinki. People can reasonably disagree on the NATO budget or on Trumps handling of tariffs, but is there really an alternative view make that alter nate reality of Helsinki? Trump had to change word change no one believed. Helsinki was dubbed the foreign policy equiva lent of Charlottesville, the neo-Nazi march a year ago where Trump took the wrong side. Its hard to fathom that 66 percent of Republicans watched Trump on that stage with Putin and came away comforted. So, lets delve into that number. Its 66 percent of the Republican Party, a party comprised of 24 percent of the population, down from 32 percent a year ago. Do the math, 66 percent of 24 is 16 per cent of the population that thinks Trump did a good job at Helsinki. America is a diverse nation. You can get 16 per cent to believe Genghis Khan was a pleasant fel of us around by the nose. And thats whats hap pening. We have 16 percent of the electorate setting the agenda. Theyre Trumps audience, and Trump is campaigning like crazy, hitting three states alone in the last week, including a crisis visit to the Mid west to reassure farmers hes got their back. Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican, called out Trump for cutting the legs out from un der farmers with his trade war, and then spend ing $12 billion of taxpayer money to give farmers gold crutches. This isnt how to make America great again, Sasse said, theyre just going to make it 1929 again. The Smoot-Hawley protectionist tariff signed by President Herbert Hoover the fol lowing year was a major factor leading to the Great Depression. The modern Re publican Party that be lieved in free trade, bal anced budgets, and the NATO alliance has gone into hibernation. The GOP is now Trumps par ty, driven by Trumps grudge matches. Any thing that his predecessor did must be undone; anyone who crosses Trump must pay a price. 2016 to the establishment-favored GOP candidate in Georgia who lost Tuesdays gubernatorial pri mary, crossing Trump or not cozying up to him enough can be politically fatal. Trump endorsed Trumpian candidate Brian Kemp in Georgia at the last minute. He had been 14 points behind and likely to lose. Kemp, currently Geor gias secretary of state, then came from behind to win on the strength of Trumps endorsement, a cau tionary tale to all those who might think about chal lenging Trump during the political primary season. Trump is campaigning for the midterms and for his reelection in 2020. Hes already raised $88 mil lion toward his reelection. And he continues to spew venom to sew discord and disbelief. When the audio tape of a phone call between Trump and attorney Michael Cohen surfaced, Trump at a rally told his supporters not to believe what theyre hearing and seeing, that it was fake news. His voice, his words were fake news, and the 16 percent believe him. Its fair to say the Republican Party has been tak en over by that 16 percent who pledge allegiance to Trump no matter what. It is a shrinking piece of the electorate because so many people no longer think of themselves as Republicans. How long is the rest of the GOP going to sit back while a minority of a minority takes over their party? Either mainstream Republicans are going to somehow reclaim the party which seems increas ingly unlikely or they will look for another home in a new party. Meanwhile, how long will the rest of the country condone this spectacle of 16 percent of the population propping up such a president?

I got a haircut today. My barber was a short man with white hair, and a thick Ca jun accent. His friends call him Spike. I could hardly understand a word Spike said through his accent. He laughs too much. I love old men who laugh too much. And he is a good story teller. When it was over, I thanked him for the haircut. He shook my hand and said, Se pa aryen, Meh Sha. He translated: Dont mention it, boy. Then he taught me how to say thank you in the French-Cajun tongue. Bien merci, he ex plained. So I tried it. Bee-YEN mare-SEE, sir, said I. This made him laugh un til he turned purple. Keep trying, boy! he said. Next, I went to Cracker Barrel for early lunch. While I ate, my phone vibrated. My wife texted me a hardware store list that was longer than an unfurled roll of Char min toilet paper. So, I shoved bacon and eggs down my gullet and went to pay. In the cashier line there was a girl with a scarf wrapped around her bald head. We talked. Her name is Julia, she is eighteen, from Bowling Green. She is in town enjoying the she ever saw the Gulf of Mexico. Ever. I cant actually go in the water, she explained. Doctor says theres too much bacteria, my body cant deal with that. But shes here just the same, and that counts for something. Before she left the restaurant, her father bought her a straw sunhat. She modeled it for her family. She is one of the most beau tiful girls I ever saw. Enjoy the beach, Julia. people I know. It was a regular homecom ing parade. I cant go to the hardware store without seeing folks I grew up with, worked with, played community softball with, or went to church with. I shook hands, glanced at baby photos, and listened to Bill Weaver talk for thirty minutes about his gallstones. And I also saw a boy with Down syn drome in the plumbing aisle. He was with his father. I couldnt take my eyes off them. They were laughing like they were in their own private world. When I got to the checkout lane, I saw them again, standing beside me. And I tried to listen to their conversation, but wasnt able to hear because I was kneedeep in conversation with an old man named Don. I used to go to church with Don a hundred years ago. Don needs new batteries for his hearing aids. But then, hes always been a little hard of hearing. Don Long ago, whenever the choir would sing Precious Lord Take my Hand, Don would be singing Im so Glad Im a Part of the Family of God. But back to the boy I saw. When his fa ther paid for his things, the boy hugged the cashier. And I saw the boy hug a few more strangers, too. And they were gone. And this touched me. Hugs without reason. sky opened up. It started to rain, something happened to have my laptop with me. So I wrote what you just read. No, its not eloquent, and theres no ma jor point to it. But the older I get, the more I believe in common things. And in common people. I believe they have more meaning than I once thought. So I wish I had words to tell you how beautiful it all is. The rain. The people. The eggs and bacon. The old friends in hard ware stores. Everything. I wish I could tell you how grateful I am visit the beach; and boys who hug cashiers; and old men who still sing in church choirs; and those who cut hair and laugh too much. I hope, one day, to be like a certain Cajun barber. I guess what Im trying to say is: bien merci, Lord. For everything. Bien merci.

The School Board of Liberty County OPEN POSITIONS Applications will be received from July 25 Aug. 7 at 4 p.m. ET MARIANNA Chipola College English Instructor Amie Myers and three Chipola students have been recognized by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) for their work on the Florida English Journal. The Florida journal of the Florida Coun cil of Teachers of English (FCTE), housed at Chipola College. The publication is one ate journals selected for the Award. The awards commit tee indicated that, among these eight journals, they were most impressed with the quality of the Florida English Journal. Myers is the Active Edi tor of the journal, which she produced with Chipola Eng lish Education students Alli son Brown, Melody Holt, and Mary Johnson, who served as student editors. NCTE judges found the Spring 2018 issue to have a powerful cold open ing with the inclusion of vivors of the Marjory Stone man Douglas High School shooting. One judge stated, The poems themselves were moving, without being stri dent. The rest of the journal followed with remarks from editors and staffers about the tragedy. Myers said, We took a risk by putting these poems in a fo lio before the table of contents, with no context, but we want ed the journal to interrupt our readers expectations of how a journal should be structured, just as the students at MSD challenged our understanding of what happens in the after math of a school shooting. It worked; the opening of the journal is powerful, haunting, and meaningful. We are es pecially proud of this editing choice. It is also important to point out that this journal is unique because it was edited by students; journals of this kind are often edited by teams of PhDs, seasoned teachers, and published writers. I am so impressed with the work my students did, and we are thrilled to have received this national recognition. Also recognized by the judges were the stunning art and graphics, with the same style woven throughout the edition. Featured artist Maddie Craven, a graduate of Chipola and the University of Florida, created the series of 10 fashion croquis-style renderings of famous male protagonists as female. Ms. Craven created this series in an Advanced Placement Art class under Dr. Jerri Benton at Marianna High School. Craven says, By visualizing these strong males as equally strong females, I think we can come to shift our perspective on gender. We can come to see people as complex souls exist ing inside, outside, and in spite of the gender binary. We can come to see that, if these sto ries were written with female protagonists instead of males, they probably wouldnt be so different. Another judge stated, The to single out superior articles; those on vocabulary and death in the classroom were cited as especially noteworthy. Myers explains, We wanted to make as much room as possible for as many strong voices as we cludes educational research, an interview with DonorsChoose. org founder Charles Best, les son plans, scripts, poems, short stories and more. We thought it was especially important to include student voices in this edition, so there is an entire section of student work from our district and around the state. Several Chipola students also submitted their work, and some of them were published too. We think the journal is in teresting, informative, and en tertaining, and thats what we were going for. Dr. Pam Rentz, Chipola Vice President of Instruction, said, We are so proud of Ms. Myers, the English Education students Allison Brown, Mel ody Holt, and Mary Johnson, featured artist and Chipola alumna Maddie Craven, and Chipola students Kathrine Al derman, Hayden Church, and Morgan Johnson who also had their work published in this journal. The vision of Ms. Myers and her students, along with their editorial decisions, has resulted in a powerful, in formative publication for Eng lish teachers across Florida and the nation. The Chipola group will attend the NCTE national convention in No vember to accept the award for the publication. Dr. Pam Rentz is an FCTE board member. Carrie Dunkle Perry, a native of Marianna and English teacher at Prew Academy in Sarasota, is Presi dent of the FCTE. The Florida Council of Teachers of English (FCTE)
