House members voted 70-40 to approve the bill (HB 7067), sponsored by Tourism & Gaming Control Chairman Mike La Rosa, R-St. Cloud. The bill would lead to the Semi-nole Tribe paying $3 billion to the state over seven years. In exchange, the tribe would have exclusive rights to conduct banked card games, such as blackjack, at five of its casinos. Also, the tribe would continue to have exclusive authority to offer slot machines outside of Miami-Dade and Broward counties, and pari-mutuel facilities would be barred from offering lucrative designated playerŽ card games. A Senate version (SB 840) has moved through committees, though it includes key differ-ences from the House bill.

Gun rights advocates across the state descended at the Capitol to remind legislators that the Second Amendment is a Constitutional right, and to seek solutions to gun violence that dont infringe on that right.Watkins attended the rally with his wife and friends. He emphasized that attend-ees were non-militant.At our rally, we had a moment of silence for everyone who has ever died in a mass shooting; so, its not that were insensitive to mass shootings,Ž Watkins said. We believe that things need to be done. But we dont believe that our gun rights should be stripped because mad men choose to shoot people.ŽLocals attend gun rights rally, voices heardA child holds a poster during the pro-gun rights rally held in Tallahassee on Sunday.

** A2 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | Washington County NewsCarol Wyatt has done a great job as editor of the News and Times-Adver-tiser, and were truly going to miss her as she chooses to pursue other opportunities,Ž said News and Times-Advertiser Pub-lisher Nicole Barefield. She cares about our communities, and it showed in her coverage and commitment to accurate, truthful and enterprising reporting, even in tough situations.Ž Barefield assures Bostick will con-tinue on in that spirit.I know well get the same commitment from Interim Editor Jacqueline Bostick, whos already done an excellent job reporting for the News and Times-Advertiser. Shes an experienced journalist who will bring into focus the issues, daily activities and people who make Holmes and Washington counties so special. Working alongside reporter Diane Robinson, Jacqueline will continue to provide strong, local news and feature cov-erage for our readers, and I encourage you to reach out to either with your questions or information we need to share.ŽBostick, who has served as a reporter for both papers since August 2017, received her first journalism experi-ence with The Panama City News Herald.In 2014, Florida Press Club acknowledged Bosticks work at The News Herald with two second place awards in the cat-egories of hard feature and health care.Bostick is a self pro-claimed military bratŽ and avid traveler who aims to report news from all sides.Her love for traveling abroad has brought home her love for the nation and its democracy, which reflects in her insatiable desire to cover human interest stories.When away from the newsroom, Bostick enjoys anything local … restaurants, books by local authors, networking, and the beauty of the areas natural resources. Bostick is a graduate of Florida State University. Bostick may be reached by emailing: jbostick@ chipleypaper.com BOSTICKFrom Page A1 This weekend, the state senate passed „ then reversed „ its decision on Senate Bill 7026, a $400 million public safety package, and said to be first-of-its-kind. By Monday, in a narrow 20-18 vote, legis-lators passed the bill, which calls for the development of a school marshal program that allows some teachers to be armed. Along with prohibiting adjudicated mentally ill persons from obtaining firearms, it also raises the minimum age for buying guns from 18 to 21 and imposes a three-day waiting period for all gun purchases.Senator George Gainer (R-Niceville) voted for the bill when it was at appropriations. However, he voted against the amendment that would ban the sale of AR-15s „ the one used in the Parkland shoot-ing that claimed 14 student and three adult lives on Val-entines Day. And he voted against any amendments that involved banning the sale of guns, including that of sales to buyers under 21 years of age.Senator Gainer was not available at the time of press for comment. The House has yet to make its own ver-sion of the bill.Although he reflected on legislation that crept its way into law under the shock of previous mass and tragic shootings „ such as the now ended 1993 Brady Handgun Violence Preven-tion Act (named for James Brady who attempted to assassinate former President Ronald Reagan in 1981) that imposed federal background checks and a five-day waiting period on gun sales „ Watkins said he feels as though the rally was effective and legislators are acknowledging their voice.It got a little bit of nati onal news coverage,Ž Watkins said. But its not only rallies that will bring attention. People have to step up and make phone calls to their representatives; they have to be active.ŽAs an area native, he was raised with guns, receiving his first gun from his grandfather at the 13 years old. Also, he was taught about the Second Amendment.To me, all freedoms are protected by the Second Amendment,Ž he said. Every time there is one of these shootings, the big push is gun control; nobody talks about these shootings happen in gun-free zones,Ž he said.But at the Capitol on Sunday, plenty of people had guns and the rally was peaceful.The Capitol police did a wonderful job, they were very receptive to us,Ž Wat-kins said. Were not like a militant group of people „ were Americans, we love law enforcement and we love our elected officials that are doing the right thing.Ž At the end of the national conversation on gun rights vs. public safety, Watkins said its a matter of protect-ing Constitutional rights.We would like to stop seeing the attempted infringements that we have been seeing,Ž he said.

This year, the fraternity will have a little extra support as they pass through Bonifay and Vernon.Diane Little has worked with other women from various Bonifay churches to help organize creature comforts for the young men as they pass through Bonifay March 11."The guys are coming Sunday night," said Little. "When they get to Bonifay, it's the 70 mile mark and that's when, in the past, we have seen that their feet hurt very much, and they're discouraged and tempted to quit. Like our soldiers, they carry heavy backpacks on their walk. It truly is a hard walk, but it's done in honor of our service men and women."Jeep Sullivan made arrangements for the walkers to spend the night on cots in the old Holmes County High School gym Sunday evening following meal provided by local resi-dents and a program which will feature personal testi-monies and prayers for the college students."We will ask the Lord to be with them and make the trek easier," said Little. "We know that they know it is going to hurt, but they continue doing it. We are so appreciative of what they're doing."After breakfast on Monday, the first walkers will continue their journey around 7 a.m., although they will not be walking in a group. Local veterans are invited to gather at a seating area that will be arranged at Son's Tires, located at 202 S. Waukesha St.Signs sporting the ATO and Jeep Sullivan logos saying, "We Support the Wounded Warrior Walk" will also be placed along the route in Holmes and Washington Counties to show support.As the young men enter Washington County, they will see more support from people like Family Nurse Practitioner, Dawn Frost of Vernon Family Health Center.Frost and others from the practice will also help feed the walkers, who are expected to spend the night in Vernon Monday, and show support by displaying signs and offering to help if needed."During one of my deployments, I was in Ger-many, and we never knew what happened to any of our patients," she said. "It's just the way of war. Then, through fate and Jeep Sullivan I was able to once again meet one of the patients I took care of.

Bare“ eld EDITOR Carol Kent Wyatt PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Each d ay, it seems, we look more foolish and further drag our nation down as we swirl about the tortured controversy over how the Russians meddled in the 2016 election. Last week Adm. Mike Rogers, commander of the U.S. Cyber Command, told a Senate panel that neither President Trump nor Defense Secretary Jim Mattis had ordered any counter strikes against the Russians for their actions two years ago. Rogers also predicted this activity would continue in the 2018 election if we didnt change the dynamic.Ž Senate Democrats pounced, blasting Trump for not going after President Vladimir Putin or his minions. Rogers spoke more than week after Special Counsel Robert Mueller secured indictments against 13 Russian operatives for running a troll farm practicing information warfareŽ through malignant tweets and laughable Facebook ads. The instigation initially targeted Hillary Clinton, but after the election sought to further divide Trump supporters and critics. Two weeks before his latest testimony, Rogers was among U.S. intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who affirmed to another Senate committee that Russia had attempted through cyber means to dupe American voters in 2016. Left unchecked, Russia again would attempt to exploit our political fissures,Ž as Coats put it, in this years elections. Before any of that happened, though, NBC News, quoting Jeanette Manfra, head of cybersecurity for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), reported that Russia had successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 election.Ž Manfra referenced 21 states known to have been targeted, including Florida. The Tampa Bay Times asked the Florida Department of State, which oversees elections, if Florida was among those that had been breached. The department acknowledged it was targeted but not hacked. After Rogers testimony on Tuesday, NBC returned with a report that Florida was indeed one of seven states whose websites or voter registration systems were compromised by Russian-backed covert operatives prior to the 2016 election.Ž This time, NBC noted the intelligence community had not told the states in question. Yet three weeks earlier, Sarah Revell, spokeswoman for the Department of State, told the Times the DHS had warned state officials that Floridas voting system was probed. But, she added, the attack was in not in any way successful.Ž When NBC revisited the issue last week, the Department of State reiterated to the network its reply to the Times. To this day,Ž NBC reported, six of the seven states deny they were breached, based on their own cyber investigations.Ž Illinois, which was one of the seven, is the only state to confirm its voter rolls were accessed, yet not altered. Its a discrepancy,Ž NBC continued,Ž that underscores how unprepared some experts think America is for the next wave of Russian interference. ...Ž A version of this editorial first appeared in The Ledger, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Time to act on Russian subterfuge Dear Editor, My wife just made me aware of your pending departure from the Washington County News. First, I ask that you reconsider and not leave. Since the likelihood of that happening is not too great, let me use this letter as an opportunity to say, THANK YOU.Ž Thank you for keeping our paper as local as possible during times of mergers, acquisitions, and changes of corporate policies. THANK YOU for what FOX News says calls, Fair & BalancedŽ reporting. THANK YOU for reporting and leaving the editorializing of local new alone. THANK YOU for covering the meetings of our municipalities and Wausau in particular. THANK YOU for covering our work before I retired. And THANK YOU for the courage and faith you have shown our community during times of personal tragedies. I am sure WCN recognizes its loss. May God bless your future.Roger D. Hagan Wausau Town MayorEditors Note: March 9 will be my last day serving as Editor of Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser. Jacqueline Bostick will step in as Interim Editor at that time. Thank you all for allowing me to serve these wonderful communities for the past four years. „ Carol Kent WyattLETTER TO THE EDITORThis week, I will bid farewell to the field of journalism as I depart from my role as Editor of Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser on March 9. Before I leave, I would like to share what I believe to be the most important lesson I have learned through the years: Be an encourager. Encourage others. Encourage yourself. I first ventured into journalism in 1992 as an unpaid student reporter for the Washington County News. At that time, Maurice (Moe) Pujol was Publisher; Jan Morris was Managing Editor, and Cameron Everett was Production Supervisor „ a role Cameron still serves in today, for the News, as well as for Holmes County Times-Advertiser. To a 16-year-old high school junior whose time was spent journaling her insightfulŽ world views, the idea of writing for an honest-to-goodness, real newspaper was the paragon of achievement. Soon, there it was, on page 3A of the October 15, 1992 edition „ right above the school lunch menu: my very first article.Ž Re-reading it now, more than 25 years later, I cringe with embarrassment at my youthful earnestness. However, as I cringe, I also remember that in that moment, even though I was writing a very basic school news item, teenage me thought I was embarking on a path that would change the world. This memory serves as a reminder that 42-year-old me should not discount those little goals „ for they were once a very big deal and helped me reach the larger goals along the way. More importantly, I am reminded to pay closer attention to the smallŽ goals of others, especially my children. After all, the games my son creates on the user-generated gaming platform, RobloxŽ could one day become a jumping platform to a career in software development. Instead of inwardly groaning when he begins yet another sentence with, This week I made a game thatƒ,Ž I should take note and encourage him to keep going. Its a cycle, you see. The person you encourage today will remember the way it felt to have someone recognize their potential and urge them to harness it, regardless of setbacks encountered along the way. In turn, the encouraged will likely become the encourager, seizing the significance of the impact you made to inspire them to make a similar impact for another. I find this true as I reflect on my days as an aspiring reporter, first encouraged by my parents and former editor Jan Morris and later by my Senior Honors English teacher, Carol Coleman Schimpf and the first publisher to see that somethingŽ in me, Robert M. Williams of George-based newspaper group, SouthFire. With them in mind, I was able to reach out to my first two high school interns, Kelly (Vickers) McGuire and Andrea Heflin, while serving in my first Editor position with The Alma Times in Alma, Georgia. Most recently, readers have enjoyed the work of Madison Jones of Bethlehem High School who has the encouragement of BHS teacher Carrie Hayford „ and Amber Knight and Nicole Donaldson of Ponce de Leon High School „ who have encouragement from PDLHS coach and teacher Laurie Tinsley. While its hard to say where the future will lead these young ladies, I like to imagine they will one day look fondly back on these amazing teachers and the eccentric, middle-aged editor who helped published their first bylines and draw on those memories to encourage the next generation. At the risk of this sounding like an acceptance speech better suited to the recent 90th installment of the Academy Awards, I am blessed with the problem of not having adequate time or words to thank all my encouragers; however, Iwould be remiss not to mention these last few: First, tothe residents of Holmes and Washington Counties: You welcomed me home with open arms and then made me better at serving by giving valued and honest feedback on what I was doing right, as well as where I needed to improve. Next, I need to express my appreciation for retired Roulhac Middle School English Arts teacher, Dee Bowen, who will forever be my kindred spirit.Ž She helped me fall in love with literature by introducing me to Anne of Green GablesŽ and engaging me in long conversations aboutthat and other works.Not long ago, she stopped by the office to tell me I had made her proud. On days I wanted to give up, I truly thought about this beloved teacher and her unwavering belief in my abilities. As my career blossomed, my children and husband, Shane, understood that I was doing what I enjoyed while serving the communities that I loved „ and as a result, forgave me for missed family events and night and weekend phrases like, I promise, we will celebrate laterŽ and Just let me make one more call.Ž My most recent encouragers are found in the colleagues I leave behind, with the little things they do playing a large role in any success I found: Publisher Nicole Barefield encouraged me both professionally and personally during the toughest struggles; Office Manager Brenda Taylor patiently tolerated my random, often comedic monologues; News Clerk Cathrine Lamb, learned to speak fluent Carol when I became so absent minded that I couldnt remember the word for things like pencilŽ; Advertising Rep Famie Bush gave helpful reminders and allowed me to be the voice of unreasonŽ more than once; Production Supervisor Cameron Everett made the best coffee and always had a cheerful greeting, and my beloved Panama City News Herald Digital Goddess,Ž Kristy Smith never hesitated to help answer my endless questions. And finally, I must acknowledge the best community newsroom team Ive ever known, Reporter Jacqueline Bostick „ who has been named Interim Editor „ and Reporter Diane Robinson. They havebeen encouragers of each other, myself, and the community we all love. While I know theythink Ive handed out some tough assignments in the past, the last truly tough one is something Ive given to myself and saying goodbye is one tough assignment. In closing, thank you, Holmes and Washington Counties. Ill see you around.Parting words: Be an encourager Wyatt will be missed C a r o l K e n t W y a t t Carol Kent WyattMy “ rst news itemŽ appeared in the October 15, 1992, edition of the Washington County News.

** A6 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | Washington County News STATEBy Dara Kam News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ After two weeks of emotionally charged testimony and raw debate, the Florida Senate on Monday nar-rowly approved a sweeping measure addressing mental health, school safety and guns in response to last months mass shooting at a Broward County high school that left 17 people „ including 14 students „ dead.The 20-18 vote came after nearly non-stop advocacy from students, teachers and parents, including survivors from Marjory Stoneman Doug-las High School in Parkland who demanded that lawmakers take action before the legislative session ends Friday.The $400 million package includes more than $100 million for mental health screening and ser-vices and at least $25 million to raze and rebuild the building where 19-yearold gunman Nikolas Cruz, who had a lengthy history of mental health problems, used an assault-style rifle to slay teachers and stu-dents at the school he once attended.The Marjory Stone-man Douglas Public Safety ActŽ sparked interand intra-party schisms, with some Democrats objecting that the bill did not go far enough because it did not include the ban on assault-style weapons sought by many of the survivors and their families.On the other end of the gun-control spectrum, the legislation posed a challenge for Republicans because it would raise the age from 18 to 21 and impose a three-day waiting period for the purchase of rifles and other long guns, two elements opposed by the National Rifle Association.The package (SB 7026) has been overshadowed by debate about a school marshalŽ program that would allow specially trained school personnel, including teachers, deputized by county sheriffs to bring guns to schools. School boards and sheriffs must both agree to implement the program for it to go into effect.The Senate signed off on the measure Monday after Republican leaders rebranded the controversial marshal provision, naming it after a Marjory Stoneman Douglas assistant football coach who died protecting students on Feb. 14.Sen. Bill Galvano, the bill sponsor, said the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program,Ž would honor the coach who used his body to shield students from bul-letsŽ and in doing so, lost his own.ŽIn an attempt to assuage objections to what Demo-crats disparagingly dubbed the armed teachersŽ pro-gram, Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, offered an amendment that would exclude from the program individuals who exclusively perform class-room duties as classroom teachers.ŽGov. Rick Scott, who was in Puerto Rico at the time the Senate passed the bill Monday evening, has repeatedly said he does not want armed teachers in schools, something that black lawmakers as a bloc also oppose.Saying he voted to try to strip the marshal program out of the bill on Saturday, Garcia, R-Hialeah, said, The whole goal is to try to limit the amount of individuals that can carry in a classroom.ŽBut Sen. Jose Javier Rodriguez, D-Miami, argued the exclusiveŽ language means that teach-ers who double as coaches „such as Douglas High teacher Scott Beigel, who was among the 17 people killed „could bring guns into classrooms.It does not change the fundamental flaw in this bill,Ž Rodriguez said.Mondays floor action, which came after nearly eight hours of debate during a rare Saturday session, was another emotional tour de force for senators who have been inundated by pleas from the Parkland community to do some-thing to make schools safer.Two of the senators who visited the school hours after the shooting broke down while speaking on opposite sides of the mea-sure Monday evening.Sen. Lauren Book, who helped more than 100 Douglas High students travel to Tallahassee and meet with Scott and lawmakers, sobbed as she described the horror scene at the school, where students backpacks, papers and bicycles „and Valen-tines Day flowers „ were a stark reminder of the carnage that had taken place the day before.We may have different ideas about how to get there, but we can and we must work together ƒ and take action for the safety of our schools, and our chil-dren,Ž Book, D-Plantation, said. They want us to do something. Do I think that this bill goes far enough? No, I dont. But what I dis-agree with more is the idea of our allowing the great to be the enemy of the good.ŽCalling the measure a first step, Book „who was one of the three Senate Democrats to vote in favor of the bill „said lawmakers were elected to represent the will of the people.Their will is clear. Lets get something done,Ž she said, calling the measure a first step. Democrats Bill Montford of Tallahassee and Kevin Rader, whose district includes the Park-land school, also voted yesŽ on the bill.But Sen. Gary Farmer, D-Fort Lauderdale, said the Legislature owes it to the victims and to other schoolchildren to vote down the bill because it lacks the ban on assaultstyle weapons and high-capacity magazines sought by many in the Parkland community.The mentality that we take what we can get and come back next year and fight for more, Im sorry. I cant do that. I cant vote to put more guns in schools, in the hands of teachers or others,Ž Farmer said. I believe this will be the first and last step. ... Because 14 months from now, when were back here ƒ the pres-sure will be reduced and the NRA will be omnipotent again.ŽBut Galvano, a Bradenton Republican who will take over as Senate president after the November elec-tions, said the bill will make a difference immediately.When it becomes law, things will start changing. It will be one of those areas that we will be able to look back and say we did some-thing. We didnt allow lives to be in vain. We were able to stand up and say to the families to the communi-ties, to the children, to our children, that we listened and were trying,Ž he said. We dont have all the answers, but were giving it our best, and we will keep giving it our best.ŽThe Senate bill will now go to the House, which has a similar proposal. But the House proposal would require sheriffs to participate in the controversial marshal program, if school districts order it.Sen. Tom Lee, a former Senate president who was one of six Republicans „along with Dennis Baxley of Ocala, George Gainer of Panama City, Denise Grimsley of Sebring, Dor-othy Hukill of Port Orange and Greg Steube of Sarasota „ who voted against the measure, predicted the House would accept the Senates language.I cant imagine them wanting to bounce this back and have to go through this all over again. I suspect that with an 18 to 20 vote, theyre probably going to take this bill in the House,Ž Lee, RThonotosassa, said. God help us if they send it back.ŽSenate narrowly passes safety planBy Lloyd DunkelbergerNews Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ More sweeping changes are headed toward Floridas public schools, including the use of sales-tax credits to help students attend pri-vate schools.In a 20-17 vote Monday, the Senate backed a bill (HB 7055) that has been a top priority of House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O Lakes, and includes dozens of changes for the states 67 school districts. Hours later, the House gave final approval in a 74-39 vote, sending the measure to Gov. Rick Scott.Corcoran came onto the House floor after the final vote, hugging some of his top lieutenants in celebration.House leaders have pushed the bill to expand school choice, including the promotion of charter schools and the use of publicly funded vouchers to send students to private schools.The most significant change may be the addition of two new voucher-like programs that would be funded by sales-tax credits. Previously, such programs relied on corporate income-tax credits and general revenue.One measure would pro-vide hope scholarships,Ž which would offer aid for public-school students who are bullied or otherwise face harassment to transfer to private schools. The program could provide up to $40 million in schol-arships annually. It would be funded by motorists who designate up to $105 that they would otherwise pay in sales taxes on vehicle purchases.Another new voucher program would bolster the existing Gardiner scholarships, which provide aid to disabled students, and could be used to expand the longstanding Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program.The program would be funded by allowing businesses and others who lease commercial property to designate to the scholarship programs the sales taxes paid on the leases. It would be capped at $57.5 million per year.A third new voucher pro-gram would provide reading scholarships, which can be used for private services like tutoring, for struggling readers in the third through fifth grades. It would be funded with $9.7 million in general revenue.The voucher expansion drew strong opposition from Democrats, with 13 of the 15 Senate Democrats voting against the bill.Why are we expanding these vouchers, while were starving our public schools? Its insanity. And its patently unfair,Ž said Sen. Gary Farmer, D-Fort Lauderdale.Sen. Kathleen Passidomo, a Naples Republican who oversees public school funding in the Senate, rejected the argument that lawmakers were shortchanging the public-system, noting law-makers are moving toward agreement on a new state budget that would provide $21 billion for the schools.Thats a huge amount of dollars. We are not starving the schools. We are doing the best we can for our edu-cational system,Ž she said.Passidomo also defended the new hope scholarships, saying the program would help students who are bul-lied in school.Why not let them move? Why not give them a fresh start?Ž she asked.Sen. Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa, renewed his opposition to a provision in the bill that could force teachers unions to disband if their membership falls below 50 percent of the employees they represent in the collective-bargaining process.He said the measure, which is aimed specifically at instructional person-nel,Ž would slap the teachers of Florida in the face.ŽLee, a former Senate president, also urged sen-ators to stand up for the sovereigntyŽ of the Senate and reject the measure.Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, rejected the notion that the bill was largely the work of House leaders, noting the numerous provisions from the Senate that would provide more edu-cational flexibilityŽ to students and their families, including the hope scholarships.Law makers pass controversial education changes[NEWS SERVICE FLORIDA]

** A8 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Jonathan Lemire and Catherine LuceyThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ They spent their first year in Washington as an untouchable White House power couple, command-ing expansive portfolios, outlasting rivals and enjoying unmatched access to the president. But Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have undergone a swift and stunning reckoning of late, their powers restricted, their enemies emboldened and their future in the West Wing uncertain.Kushner, long the second-most powerful man in the West Wing, is under siege. President Donald Trumps son-in-law has lost influential White House allies. He remains under the shadow of the Russia probe and has seen his business dealings come under renewed scrutiny. He has been stripped of his top security clearance, raising questions how he can successfully advance his ambitious agenda „ including achieving Mideast peace, a goal that has eluded presidents for generations.Kushners most power-ful patron, the president himself, has wavered recently on whether his daughter and son-in-law belong in the White House anymore.A frustrated Trump has griped about the wave of bad headlines generated by probes into Kushners business dealings and the status of his security clearance, according to two people familiar with the presidents think-ing but not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations. The president also has wondered aloud if the couple would be better off returning home to New York.At the same time, though, Trump has said he believes many of the attacks against Kushner are unfair and has lamented that the couple is going through such a turbulent time, according to the two people close to the situation who spoke on condition of anonym-ity because they werent authorized to speak publicly about Trumps private comments.I think hes been treated very unfairly,Ž Trump said late last month. Hes a high-quality person.ŽKushners woes mush-roomed in the past month, when accusations of spousal abuse emerged against White House staff secretary Rob Porter. Initially, the resulting firestorm „ including questions about how Porter had interim clearance for top-secret information despite red flags in his background „ threatened to engulf Chief of Staff John Kelly, the retired Marine hired to bring order to Trumps chaotic West Wing.Kelly seemed to stabilize his own standing, in part by ordering a reform of the White House security clearance process. And among senior aides, that change fell the hardest on Kushner, who had been working with interim access to top-secret information. And he was doing that as investigators worked through his familys complicated real estate dealings and as special counsel Robert Mueller probes Russian connec-tions to the Trump team.A week ago, Kushners security clearance level was downgraded, leav-ing White House aides to wonder just how many indignities Kushner and Ivanka Trump are willing to suffer. Even if recent events and revelations dont trigger a departure, they have demonstrated that the West Wing clout of Javanka,Ž as the couple is often referred to, is a far cry from what it once was.Since taking office last year, Kelly has prioritized creating formal lines of authority and decision-making. Kushner resisted efforts to formalize his role „ which early in the administration made him something of a shadow secretary of state „ and he has grown frustrated with the chief of staffs attempts to restrict the couples access to the president.The couple perceives Kellys crackdown on security clearances as a direct shot at them, according to White House aides and outside advisers. But one White House official disputed that account, suggesting that Kushner welcomed Kellys efforts to organize the West Wing, allowing him to more singularly focus on his portfolio.Kelly, in turn, has been angered by what he views as the couples freelancing. He blames them for changing Trumps mind at the last minute and questions what exactly they do all day, according to one White House official and an outside ally. Kushner prevailed in previous power struggles within the White House, including one against former chief strategist Steve Bannon, but allies of the president on the out-side openly cheered the power couples weakened position.Only a son-in-law could withstand this sort of exposure and not be fired,Ž said Jennifer Palmieri, former communications director for President Barack Obama. Kushners vulnerable and in an accelerated fall from grace. Even though his departure would leave Trump even more isolated, a decision could be made that its just not worth it for him to stay.ŽThose close to the couple insist the duo has no plans to leave Wash-ington. But a soft landing spot has emerged if they choose to take it.At a senior staff meet-ing Wednesday, Kushner spoke about the 2020 campaign at Kellys behest, talking up the selection of Brad Parscale to run the campaign, according to an admin-istration official who was not authorized to speak publicly about internal discussions. Kushner has a close relationship with Parscale, whom he recruited to work on the 2016 campaign.News of Parscales appointment was first reported in the Drudge Report, a favored outlet of Kushners, in a move that was seen by some in the West Wing as an attempted reminder of Kushners clout just hours before his humbling secu-rity clearance downgrade became public.Kushner, Ivankas fate uncertainIvanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, senior adviser to President Donald Trump, attend a joint news conference with the president and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, March 17 in the East Room of the White House in Washington.

But in a big way the Tigers players have.Blountst own advanced to its first state champion-ship game in boys basketball since the schools heyday in the sport in the 1960s and 1970s with a 57-40 win over Chipley on Monday morning in a Class 1A state semifinal game.The Tigers, 23-3, will play Wildwood, which staged a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback in the second semifinal, for the state cham-pionship at 1 p.m. CST today in the RP Funding Center.Chipley ended 19-11, and was held to just 24.6 per-cent shooting from the field in the third meeting between the teams this season. Each squad had taken a decisive win on its home court prior to Mondays outcome.Blountstown took over the game in the middle quarters where it held a 33-14 edge. Aside from Kelvin Dean, who paced Chipley with 20 points, the rest of the team only made 8 of 44 shots from the field. Chipley finished 15-61.We hope to keep people under 50 (points) and under 40 if we can,Ž Blountstown coach Brent Zessin said. Defense is what we focus on; stopping people from getting to the rim and closing out on their shooters.Ž Zessin said that all but one player on Blountstowns varsity basketball team was a member of the football team that advanced to the state championship game in December.These kids ƒ theyve been here before,Ž Zessin said. Last year five or six went to the state track meet.

It was 24-17 at halftime, and Blountstown opened a 43-24 cushion by the start of the fourth quarter.Kevon Godwin had 25 points to lead the onslaught. Jamal Howard had 11 and Washington nine. Howard had 10 rebounds, Blountstown with a slight 43-37 edge.Through three quarters of the second semifinal it appeared that Blountstown would face Madison County today in the finals. That was when Wildwood rallied for a 17-6 edge in the fourth quarter and won 65-63 when Bryan McMullen made a basket with 4 seconds left.Marcus Niblick had 22 points and Darion Wilson 20 for Wildwood, 22-7.I know it sounds kind of crazy, but we just play them one game at a time.

By Ari LeVauxMore Content NowAs another year begins, and another crop of seed catalogs arrives in the mail, my thoughts turn to summers garden. And usually, at about that time, I remember the words of the outdoorsy writer Tim Cahill: I am a man who sits around at home reading wilderness survival books the way some people peruse seed catalogs or accounts of classic chess games,Ž Cahill wrote, in the introduction to a book of adventure stories called Jaguars Ripped my Flesh.Ž Successful gardeners must hold within them the best characteristics of both chess master and woodsman, combining the patience of the former and the endurance of the latter, with a survivalists intimate knowledge of the landscape and a strategy thats gazing many moves ahead. But while gardening could be about survival like the other pursuits Cahill mentions, thats not really why we do it. We do it for the full-contact grappling contest with nature, the bees and the rain and the weeds and the dirt. We do it because it feels like the thing to do. Am I right? And we do it because the garden also offers us specific things for specific individuals. For me, the garden is a place for whimsy, creativity and relaxation. Its more about fun than production. Whatever your goals may be, its important to be clear about your expectations. Especially now, when you have a bunch of seed catalogs spread before you. If youre anything like me, seed catalogs make your credit card itch. So before you go crazy, make a plan. I like to simplify things by skipping any plants that need to be started inside. Im done with using a sunny windowsill to start my tomatoes. Unless you have a real grow space and the proper gear, starting seeds indoors is a losing proposition. Your tomato seedlings will probably be an embarrassment compared to the greenhouse-grown beauties you could have purchased at the farmers market. The only thing I grow in large enough quantities to store is garlic. The rest of the garden, I plant to eat. And to frolic among. Berries and peas for the kids, bitter greens and basil for the adults. All these can be ordered from a seed catalog and planted directly, without having to be grown inside. Climbing plants like beans, planted next to a fence or sunflowers, are a no-brainer to me. I will leave you with a recipe for PastaPestoPrego, a recipe that I developed in college. Its a glimpse at what you can make if you plan ahead, and get on the yearlong cycle that this recipe demands. If you want to get on the cycle, the only immediate job is to order basil seeds, because basil is so damn expensive and easy to grow you really should. Order a big bag and plant them everywhere, as soon as the threat of frost has passed. With your garden-fresh basil and tomatoes, make PastaPestoPrego all summer long. In fall, buy bulk quantities of tomato and basil and make a winter stash of tomato sauce and pesto.FLASH IN THE PANGarden freshWhat to plant now for a year of PastaPestoPregoPastaPestoPrego is a glimpse at what you can make if you plan ahead in your garden, and get on the yearlong cycle that this rec ipe demands. [ARI LEVAUX] PastaPestoPrego€ Big pot of boiling water € Pasta noodles € Half an onion, minced € Two garlic cloves, pressed, grated or minced € Pesto (basil, garlic, hard cheese, olive oil, nuts; all pulverized) € Red sauce (tomatoes, onions, wine, oregano. You know, red sauce) € Cheese, such as Parmesan or Romano € Ground meat (optional) Before you even take off your backpack, get the pasta water going. Quickly chop half an onion and put it in a pan with olive oil and oregano on medium. Add meat if using. Cook until delicious. Season as necessary. Add noodles to boiling water. Take off backpack. Add red sauce to pan when the meat and onions are ready. When noodles are done to your liking, drain them and toss with olive oil and minced garlic. This, right here, is the most important trick you need to know about pasta: The garlic will cook in the hot oiled noodles and the house will smell amazing. Then stir in the cheese and pesto. Finally, toss in the red sauce. Add more grated cheese, if necessary, and proceed to eat until it hurts.

** B2 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Stan ChoeThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Stocks shook off morning losses on Monday and surged in the afternoon to send the Standard & Poors 500 index to its best day in a week. Its the latest turn for a market suddenly prone to quick shifts not only day to day but also hour to hour, as investors question whether President Donald Trump will really risk a trade war.The S&P 500 lost as much as 0.6 percent shortly after trading began, only to finish the day 1.1 percent higher after rising 29.69 points to 2,720.94. Its reminiscent of what happened Friday, when stocks reversed course on speculation that Trump was only making an opening bid when he promised to impose stiff tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, rather than a final offer.The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 336.70, or 1.4 percent, to 24,874.76, and the Nasdaq composite gained 72.84, or 1 percent, to 7,330.70. Both came back from early-morning losses.Trump took to Twitter again on Monday to defend the tariffs, which have riled trading part-ners around the world and already sparked talk of retaliation to heighten the worries about a possible trade war. He highlighted trade deficits with Canada and Mexico, and he said tariffs will only come off ifŽ a new free-trade agreement between the three countries is signed.Later in the day, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that he is extremely worriedŽ about the con-sequences of a global trade war and urged the White House to not advance with this plan,Ž according to a statement issued by his office. Boeing offered a good example of how quickly the market shifted. The aerospace giant got the majority of its revenue from outside the United States last year, so it would be hurt if countries put up more barriers to global trade. Boeing was down as much as 2.3 percent in the morning before ending the day up 2.3 percent. Stocks surge in latest shift by markets By Tom MurphyThe Associated PressLyft and Uber are attempting to cure a major medical problem for poor people and the elderly: Getting a ride to the doctor.The ride-hailing services are expanding their offer to take patients around the country to and from non-emergency health care appointments, and they have a huge market to target.More than 7 million Americans miss medical care every year due to a lack of transportation, according to health economist Paul Hughes-Cromwick.Health insurers and care pro-viders have been trying to solve this problem for years. Those who have studied it say Lyft and Uber will help, but improving access to health care involves more than just lining up a ride. A closer look:Q: What are these compa-nies offering?A: Lyft said Monday it is part-nering with the information technology company Allscripts to expand the number of rides it offers through doctors offices and other health care providers. The company already provides transportation to millions of patients each year through partnerships with insurers, large health care systems and others.Uber announced last week that it will offer health care transportation in every U.S. market where it operates, the continuation of a venture it has been testing since last summer.Both companies say they will operate in cities and less-populated rural areas, and they will bill the care provider or an insurer „ not the patient „ for the rides. Patients dont need a smartphone or an application to use their services.Theyre digging into an issue that has long been a concern for insurers and health care provid-ers. The stateand federally funded Medicaid program for poor people and the disabled covers transportation costs.The insurer Molina Healthcare, which specializes in Medicaid, has offered a transportation benefit for around 25 years. Molina provides bus passes and works with transportation brokers to arrange rides. Q: What are the benefits?A: Health care providers say rides with Uber or Lyft can be easier to schedule and cheaper than other alternatives like taxis. Uber, for instance, says it can schedule rides within a few hours or up to 30 days in advance.These companies help people who might otherwise have to wait around for a friend or family member to pick them up, said Carlos Ospina, chief clinical officer of New Jersey-based Pro Staff Physical Therapy.It gives the patient more independence or power to get to and from visits,Ž he said. The company has had a sig-nificantly lowerŽ number of cancellations due to transpor-tation problems since it started using Uber last fall, Ospina said.Q: Can they erase the problem?A: Researchers at the Uni-versity of Pennsylvania offered Lyft to help around 300 Medic-aid patients make primary care appointments at two practices in Philadelphia. They were surprised to find that relatively few people accepted the offer in their study, and it did not lead to a drop in missed appointments.Lead author Dr. Krisda Chai-yachati said there were several possible reasons for the low interest. The offer was made over the phone, and patients might have been more receptive if it was done in person, like at a doctors office.He also noted that many of the patients were familiar with Lyft but hadnt used it. They may have been reluctant to switch from rides they were used to like public transportation.Chaiyachati said hes opti-mistic that ride-hailing services will ease transportation prob-lems for some, but other options like home visits or telemedicine may also be needed. Its just not that easy or that straightforward,Ž he said.Ride for healthMARKET WATCHDow 24,874.76 336.70 Nasdaq 7,330.70 72.84 S&P 2,720.94 29.69 Russell 1,546.05 12.88 NYSE 12,680.73 122.74COMMODITIES REVIEWGold 1,318.10 3.00 Silver 16.338 .054 Platinum 962.10 3.00 Copper 3.1055 .0045 Oil 62.57 1.32The Associated PressNEW YORK „ Walmart wants a bigger slice of the crowded meal kits business, announcing Monday that it will offer easyto-make dinners in more stores this year.The move puts the worlds largest retailer in direct competition with meal-kit companies such as Blue Apron and HelloFresh, which deliver boxes of raw meat and chopped vegetables to subscrib-ers doorsteps. After Walmarts announcement Monday, Blue Aprons stock tumbled 5 percent.Walmart said its meal kits, which will expand from 250 stores to more than 2,000, will be available in its deli sec-tion or can be ordered online and picked up later that day. It is offering three types of kits: pre-portioned meals that need to be cooked; ingredients that pair with its rotisserie chicken; or one-step dishes that just need to be heated up. The meals feed two people and are priced between $8 and $15.Several companies already offer meal kits, both online and in stores.Amazon, which bought grocer Whole Foods last year, sells meal kits on its site and at its recently-opened convenience store in Seattle. Albertsons Cos., the owner of Safeway, Carrs and other supermarkets, bought online meal-kit service Plated last year to sell the kits at its 2,300 stores.Blue Apron Holdings Inc., meanwhile, has struggled since it became a publicly-traded com-pany in June; it recently said it lost 15 percent of its customers last year compared with the year before. Its shares are down 74 percent since its initial public offering price of $10.Walmart Inc., based in Bentonville, Arkansas, said its meal kits will be made in stores.

Billy Grahams casket was simple: pine, devoid of ornamentation, made by prison inmates.It was humble „ a word used over and over again to describe the late evangelist, who died last week at 99 at his home near Asheville.Grahams funeral, though, was anything but. An enormous, white canvas tent was set up in front of his namesake library. The list of civic and religious dignitaries attending the service was long: Presi-dent Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, and Texas televangelist Joel Osteen, to name a few.To be sure, Grahams influence was widespread, and he has frequently been referred to as Americas pastorŽ over the last week. The tent was an homage to the Christian crusadesŽ under canvas tents that pro-pelled the Charlotte-born evangelist to worldwide attention.But throughout it all „ and despite having the ear of U.S. presidents and an international audience „ Graham remained genuine and as committed to his family as he was the Gospel, said his son, the evangelist Franklin Graham.The Billy Graham that the world saw on television, the Billy Graham that the world saw in the big stadiums was the same Billy Graham that we saw at home,Ž Franklin Graham said. He loved his family.

The warm weather brings our arms out from all those long sleeves. So our move today is a kneeling triceps pulse. It will be working the backside of the arm. And by the pulsing motion, you will keep the load in the muscle for a longer period and get a deeper burn. You will need a set of light to medium hand weights and begin this kneeling motion by positioning yourself on one knee and grasping your hand weight in the hand on the side of the kneeling knee. Holding your chest tall, and engaging your core, position your free hand on your other balancing knee for added posture support. Draw in your weighted arm by your side, tuck your elbow in to your side, keep the arm in a 90-degree bend. Proceed to extend your weighted hand toward your backside by straightening the arm slightly. Once you reach your fullest extension, you will slightly release and extend keeping the tension in the triceps muscle. Shooting for a count of at least eight pulses, release the extension, and return to the start. Taking a small break, you can continue this move on the same arm, or switch to the other side. Continue to alternate your pulsing motion from side to side. If you find your added weight to be too heavy, switch to a lighter hand weight, or simply use no weight at all. Giving yourself at least three full sets on each arm. This pulsing movement can be performed on its own, or added into any upper body workout session. Any way you choose, you will notice its toning effects in a very short time.

[SCOTT WHEELER/ THE LEDGER] By JoAnne Viviano More Content Now Emmanuell Ellis has had a heart defect since he was born, undergoing surgeries as a baby and again as a teenager. But it wasnt until this year, when he was getting prepared for another procedure at Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, that the 30-yearold Lima man finally understood just what was causing the problem. The eye-opener came when Dr. Darren Berman pulled out a transparent, flexible model of Ellis heart, showing the two tubular grafts used to reconstruct his aorta and the calcium that had built up to cause severe narrowing in those tubes. That helped out a lot,Ž said Ellis, who was treated as part of a Nationwide Childrens program for adults born with heart disease. For me to see it, as plain as it was, it was right there in front of me.Ž The model, made on a 3-D printer and based on CT images of Ellis heart, is an example of the way radiologists and surgeons are teaming up to use technology to diagnose and treat heart patients. Models are made in the hospitals $350,000 3-D printing lab, which opened about a year ago. There, a team translates 2-D ultrasound, CT or MRI images into 3-D images, which are then used to create programs that tell the printer how to form replicas of patients hearts. It creates not only a pretty model to look at, but allows us to pre-procedurally plan what we think is best for that patient,Ž said Berman, who co-directs the cardiac catheterization and interventional therapy program at Nationwide Childrens Heart Center. In Ellis case, Berman used the model to come up with a plan to use four stents to reopen the grafts. He also was able to practice the procedure, determining ahead of time how the stents would react to the calcium build-up. Three-D printing is not necessarily needed on every single patient,Ž Berman said, but it plays an important role in the most complex hearts, where we and everybody else in the country and the world still struggle with what is the right decision-making for that patient.Ž Three-D printing is the next generation of medicine,Ž said Dr. Kan Hor, director of cardiac MRI at the Heart Center. It got its start in the dental industry and has become more common in other areas over the past five years, he said. Childrens hospitals tend to use it more because pediatric heart-disease cases can be unique or vary widely from one child to another. The printer takes several hours to create the models and can use different materials and colors. Using silicon-based materials, it builds the models in layers, each thinner than a hair, said Brad Hoehne, 3-D printing and conference coordinator. The next step is to improve on the materials, to make the models as close to human tissue as possible. In Ellis model, for example, two materials were used „ a more flexible material for the tubing and a harder one to represent the calcium build-up. Dealing with heart disease used to be primarily about saving lives, Berman said. But now its more about giving heart patients the best quality of life possible, and minimizing the potential for future operations. Models can assist surgeons in achieving those goals, by helping them do things properly the first time or giving them an opportunity to determine innovative ways to fix problems, he said.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, March 7, 2018 B7 By ZipRecruiter.comYouve been browsing free job boards for days, sending resumes and applications by the dozens, when you finally find it. The job you really want is staring you in the face. What should you do to make sure the hiring manager notices you? A creative resume The line between creative and obnoxious can be thin, and depending on the industry and company youre applying for, there may not be much room for creativity at all. But if youve done your research and you know the company is open to expression of personality „ maybe its a quirky startup or a design agency „ a well-designed resume can be an effective strategy. Industry-speci c resumes According to Ashley Faus on Mashable, Ive seen graphic designers turn their resumes into beautifully designed, infographic-style works of art, and marketing and communications professionals create ad campaigns with a tagline on how their skills match the open position.Ž This can be a great idea, particularly if youre confident in your ability to create a killer campaign or infographic. If youre still building your skills, it might be best to stick with a solid professional resume and leave the creative version for later. Unconventional creativity Furthermore, its possible to take this idea and turn it around for use in other professions. Its not as common in STEM fields to have a creative resume, and it can definitely help you stand out. Programmers can use code in their resumes, or even create a program that is itself a resume. The limits here are defined by situational appropriateness, your own skills and what youre willing to do. What about extras? If youre in the running for a position with a lot of responsibility to produce results, you may want to consider delivering some before youre even called back. This will show the company youre extremely motivated to do well and that you have the skills it takes to follow through on what your resume promises. In some fields, a portfolio is expected. Make sure the work that is most directly relevant to the position you want is front and center. If you dont have anything like that, it may be time for you to sit down and mock up a few things that fit the bill. Submit mock projects If youre interested in going way above and beyond, consider starting some projects for your prospective employer. Marketers can research and design some campaigns, for example. If you come in with or send a presentation speaking directly to the needs a business currently has, youre bound to leave an impression. Do your research What all of these strategies for resume add-ons have in common, you may have noticed, is the need for heavy research. You cant deliver a killer sample project unless you really know what the company is about, and what kind of issues its facing right now. The Internet can be invaluable in this effort, of course, but if you have any other way of finding information you should use it. Acquaintances in the field or at the company itself may be helpful. Particularly for startups, you may consider using the product or service they offer. This will allow you to speak intelligently about it at an interview, and it gives you the opportunity to provide meaningful feedback and suggestions in addition to your resume.
