MV5496 DUNLOP by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A man who lost control of a truck while driving south on CR 69A just after 5 p.m. Monday is facing charges after he crashed into a northbound pickup. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, Timothy William Olsen, 47, of Malone left the road and went onto the west shoulder, then veered back and traveled across the road onto the east shoulder. He again overcorrected, re turning to the road where the truck started rotating clock wise until colliding with the rear of a northbound 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Melissa Chamberlain, 50, of Altha. The truck continued on to the west shoulder where it overturned onto its left side. The second vehicle came to a controlled stop. Neither driver was injured. Olsen was charged with grand theft of a motor ve hicle, DUI with property damage and driving with li cense revoked. Ridge Volunteer Fire Dept. assisted FHP at the scene. Malone man charged with DUI, grand theft & more in Monday crash TIMOTHY W. OLSEN former supervisor at the time, Lee Keith, who served as a Captain under then-sheriff Nick Finch. resigned rather abruptly, he said. Keith said Finch told him at the time there were rumors about Westers inappropriate dealings with women while on duty, but there were no written com plaints made. Nothing was substantiated at the Liberty Finch told the Journal he had warned Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts not to hire Wester after he left his agency. Zach was a good deputy who had a great com mand presence and a bright future, said Keith. As his former supervisor, the fact that he is facing allega tions is a shock to me. A TRAFFIC STOP When she was pulled over that day, Willis said the deputy initially told her he stopped her because the vehicle wasnt insured. Then he said it was because I swerved and almost hit a truck. Westers report stated that Willis, who was southbound on Hwy. 71, crossed the center double yellow line and impeded As they spoke, he told her he could smell mari juana coming from inside the vehicle. He told her to step out; she did not. She immediately began calling family members on her phone. She was scared and admitted that she gave him a different name when he asked who she was, but later gave him her real name. His report indicated he told her seven times to exit the vehicle before grabbing her by the arm and pull ing her out. He handcuffed her and said she pulled away. He reported that he saw a glass pipe fall from her hand as he walked her toward his patrol car. He and got a positive result for methamphetamine. She said she did not have a pipe and he did not silver spoons with residue, a small baggie of meth amphetamine, a knife on the front passenger seat that tested positive for meth residue and stated that around .97 grams of marijuana was found in the front seat cup holders. Willis denied ownership of any of property the deputy said he had recovered. Youre being charged with marijuana and meth. Youre going to have at least one felony, she said he told her. She replied, Let me out of this vehicle. That aint mine. She said he responded with the comment, What youre saying is that you want to join the Drug Task Force? No sir, thats not what I said at all. The drugs aint mine, she told him. She said he then told her, Youre going to do some time for this. His demeanor? It was like he was happy to arrest me, she said. He was glad to be doing it. She said he never showed her what he allegedly found and just hit me with a list of charges. Those charges included possession of metham phetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, pro viding a false name to law enforcement, resisting an lation of state probation and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. She said she asked to be drug tested on the side of the road and at the jail but was not. Willis stated that when the employee booking her was told, I can tell you what your report says without reading. He has made many arrests like this. WILLIS SAID SIX MONTHS IN JAIL COST HER A LOT Before she was stopped by Deputy Wester that day in Marianna, Willis had a previous arrest and served two months in jail. I was guilty and it was the best thing that could have happened to me, she said about her arrest last year for possession of methamphetamine and marijuana in October 2017. The single mother of two said she used that experi ence to turn herself around. I straightened out my life. I started working, started reading my Bible and I took care of my children. She credits the jails Cel ebrate Recovery program to getting her back on her feet. Her second stint in jail was much worse. I lost my job, I lost my house and lost custody of one of my children, she said. It was devastating to say the least. She was especially upset that she had to miss Cal houn Countys Little League softball season when her nine-year-old daughters team went to state and then Before then, she said she hadnt missed a game. Words cant express the heartache this cop has caused for our family, her sister, Jodie Willis added. Willis said she moved to Blountstown to stay with her sister who has supported her through it all. She took care of both my kids and her own, brought them to see me and put money in my jail account so I could have phone calls, she said. She also credited her par ents and her brother for standing by her as well. INVESTIGATION continued from the front page Become a Volunteer Become a vital part of the advocacy team.

Late Night Laughs The Narcissist of NATO WASHINGTON When appeals to logic, mutual defense, history where to turn? Appar ently, Polish President Andrezj Duda found the answer in medical Personality Disorder as a mental condition in importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask thats vulnerable to the slightest criticism. Duda took this to heart and is using it in an at tempt to secure his country and preserve NATO as well as his own position. Right-wing populist governments are on the upswing across Europe, with Poland and Hungary most notable, and President Donald Trumps former top advisor, Steve Bannon, has been working with European leaders to further these populist movements. He knows what Trump will or will not do. He knows Trump wont criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin for whatever reason, so appeal ing to him to bolster U.S. security in Europe to protect against Russia is a losing argument. Ap pealing to his ego is another matter. Trump has spent much of his presidency un dermining NATO, the military bulwark that has kept Russia at bay for nearly 70 years. He calls member countries freeloaders for not paying their fair share and for having taken advantage of previous presidents. Simultaneously, he has cast doubt on Amer icas commitment to uphold Article 5 of the an attack on one is an attack on all. And he has suggested, for example, he might not be willing to commit U.S. forces to defend tiny Montene gro, NATOs newest member, admitted in June of 2017. Such remarks, whether intentional or off hand, have sowed fear as well in the Baltic states and Poland where peo ple have long memories and are frightened that a newly emboldened Rus sia, seeing weakness in NATO, could make a expense just as it did when Russian troops seized Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. idea for some time of a new troop presence in Poland to rebuff any Russian intentions. This is where narcissism came into play when Duda met with President Trump at the White House and proposed a new American military base in his country a base he gratuitously would call Fort Trump. pointing out that President Duda, in addition to branding the military installation with the Trump name, had offered to sweeten the deal with a $2 billion payment. That got Trumps at tention too. The Pentagon quadrupled its budget for Euro pean defense in 2017 after a Rand Corporation report cited the vulnerability to Russian aggres sion of a strip of land known as the Suwalki corridor connecting two member NATO states, Poland and Lithuania, the southernmost Baltic nation. The Russians already have troops in neigh boring Belarus and the Russian enclave of Ka liningrad, and it would be an easy grab for them to make a move on the 64 mile-wide Suwalki strip. By proposing to put an American military base on Polish soil, the Polish president would be sending a NATO message to Russia. Appealing to Trumps ego and narcissistic nature is a proven winner. And if thats what it takes to get Trump fully back into the NATO fold, its an idea that could take hold even if he has not processed all the geopolitical and mili tary implications of a Fort Trump. WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift due to overwhelming fan demand. And Sean Spicer announced that his book tour has really given him a chance to enjoy some "me time." SETH MEYERS The Tonight Show Starring with Corden According to a new report from the BBC, a strange detail has come to light about a sum mer meeting between President Donald Trump and Spain's Foreign Minister Josep Borrell. Ap parently, while discussing European immigration policies, President Trump suggested that Spain should also build a wall. Trump is now making policy suggestions to Spain or as he calls it, "European Mexico." JAMES CORDEN And where did Trump tell the foreign minister of hara Desert in Africa. Trump is not great with ge ography and borders, which is weird. Usually the only time Trump has problems understanding boundaries is with female employees. JAMES CORDEN In a recent interview, Donald Trump commented that despite what some people might think, he is "not a conspiratorial person." And then he add ed, "Anyone who would claim I'm into conspira cies is part of the Witch Hunt, started by Hillary Clinton's emails and Barack Obama's fake birth JAMES CORDEN There was some big news from the world of social media.

JAMES CORDEN Unfortunately, Facebook Dating still has a few glitches. So far it just constantly tries to match you up with your aunt who's always leaving com ments on your photos about how adorable you look. JAMES CORDEN The Tonight Show Starring with Stephen Col bert This week President Trump ordered the Justice Department to declassify secret documents re lated to the investigation of Russian meddling in our election, despite the intelligence community voicing their opposition to the move because it potentially jeopardizes the security of American intelligence assets. But he's the president, and I would certainly hope he'd have a good reason but I would certainly be wrong. Because when he was asked what was in the documents, he said, "I have not reviewed them." Yeah, that takes too long. It's like the Apple user agreement. You just scroll to the bottom and click "Treason." STE PHEN COLBERT Trump also addressed the conspiracy theory that his administration is being opposed inside the government by the so-called "Deep State." But Trump doesn't like that phrase. "I don't like to use it because it sounds so conspiratorial, and believe it or not, I'm really not a conspiratorial person." I wonder who spread the rumor that he those people from Trump's inauguration crowd, and helped Ted Cruz's father kill JFK. STEPHEN COLBERT We just found where Trump might be getting those theories about the "Deep State," because in a new book about Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin, Washington Post reporter Greg Miller writes, "A trained intelligence operative, Putin understood the power of playing to some one's insecurities and ego." Yes, to spot Trump's insecurities and ego, it takes years of KGB train ing and a television. STEPHEN COLBERT

By Brad Buck GAINESVILLE As buyers browse strawberry packages at the supermarket, they might see labels such as organically grown or locally grown. But theyd also like to know if the fruit was produced in a way that preserves the envi ronment, a new University of Florida study shows. Consumers say theyll pay more for strawberries grown in a manner that is sustainable, the research shows. Research production methods that help keep the ecosystem healthy. practices: less fertilizer, less pesticide and fewer negative impacts on air, soil and water quality. Thats helpful news for growers in the $300 milliona-year Florida strawberry industry. If they could label their products with data such as uses less fertilizer, they could make more money, said Zhifeng Gao, an associate pro fessor of food and resource economics at the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sci ences. The study provides good information regarding the de velopment of some new food labels in the market, Gao said. To help growers receive tice adoption, policymakers may consider giving growers products. Consumers, growers and regulators must work together to achieve sustainability and sustainable agriculture, he said. To help growers and con sumers, Gao led a UF/IFAS study in which researchers sur veyed 2,525 people nationwide pants would be willing to pay for certain strawberry produc tion methods. Buyers want systems that keep water clean, and they want less pesticide used, the study showed. Re searchers zeroed in on sustainable agricultural prac tices. Farms that adopt best man agement practices (BMPs) usually use less fertilizer than those that dont, Gao said. In most cases, those practices can re duce the negative impact on water quality. If growers adopting BMPs could label their product as either uses less fertilizer or reduces the negative impact on water quality, or both, they return from adopting this type of sustainable practice, Gao said. tivate more growers to adopt sustainable practices, he said. Educating consumers could lead more of them to support sustainably produced prod ucts. The UF/IFAS study is pub lished in the journal Ecological Economics. The mission of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Ag ricultural Sciences is to develop knowledge relevant to agricultur al, human and natural resources and to make that knowledge avail able to sustain and enhance the quality of human life. With more than a dozen research facilities, award-winning students and fac ulty in the UF College of Agricul tural and Life Sciences, UF/IFAS works to bring science-based so lutions to the states agricultural and natural resources industries, and all Florida residents.
