Should the project be funded, it will be two years before funding is provided.Recreation Director Alyssa Jacksonsubmitted her resignation to the council due to pregnancy. The council accepted the resignation and appointed Joy Hall as interim Recreation Director. Wausau to apply for CDBG grantNews Service FloridaThe state Senate on Wednesday voted 22-10 to approve a measure that seeks to expand a gambling agree-ment with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, while also allowing slot machines at parimutuel facilities in counties where voters have approved referendums.The Senate also moved to request the House concur with the Senate proposal and, if the House refuses, to appoint a conference committee to for-mally negotiate on the issue.Passage of a major gambling bill remains a long shot in the final days of the annual legislative session. Senate Regulated Industries Chairman Travis Hutson, R-St. Augustine, said the House and Senate proposals both seek $3 billion from the Seminoles over the first seven years of a gambling agreement known as a compact. The Senate proposes a compact of 22 years, two more than in the House version.Senate gambling approval could lead to talksBy Diane M. RobinsonThe News | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY „ Washington County will soon have two new cell towers, should the Washington County Board of County Commissioners approve the measure put forth to them by the Washington County Planning Commission.The planning commission approved the variance requests for Coral Towers Inc. when they met in regular session March 6.The variance for the first tower, which is set to be located on the east side of Deltona Boulevard, directly across from Gap Road in Sunny Hills, includes using existing vegetation as a buffer and using red lights to avoid too much illumination to sur-rounding homes.Planning Commission approves two cell towersBy Zac Andersonzac.anderson@heraldtribune.comTALLAHASSEE „ Florida lawmakers have a message for Congress: The Sunshine State wants the sun to shine later in the day. A bill aimed at keeping Florida in daylight saving time year-round cleared the Florida Legislature on Tuesday and heads to Gov. Rick Scott for approval. Sarasota state Sen. Greg Steube filed the legislation after hearing from his barber about how annoying it is to switch between standard time and daylight saving time. The barber has young children and was having trouble getting them up for school after adjust-ing the clocks by an hour.Steubes bill asks Congress to pass legislation permitting Florida to stay in daylight saving time all year. Federal law currently allows states to opt out of daylight saving time and stay in standard time, but does not allow year-round daylight saving time.Year-round daylight saving time approved by Legislature By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY „ Minor adjustments to a util-ities ordinance were discussed Thursday at a Chipley City Council special meeting.The changes are aimed at synchronizing fees across all utilities in an effort to organize the fees processing workload, City Administrator Dan Miner said. The changes will effect gas customers only.Adjustments to utilities Ordinance No. 950, pertaining to gas, include a $2.50 increase for temporary turn-off which puts the fee in line with the water tempo-rary turn-off charge of $10 and a new flat rate of $30 for that service after hours. You're doing the same thing; so rather than charging this for this and another price for this one, we're just making it the same,Ž Miner said.Also, if the changes are approved, utility deposits will be at a flat rate of $100. Cur-rently, the language in the ordinance lists a number of algorithms for determining the deposit amount.Also at the meeting, the council heard from Chipley Redevelopment Agency Executive Director Ted Everett regarding a handful of up to 50-percent reimburse-ment matching grants the CRA is planning to pursue, pending council approval.Combined, the grants total $28,000 and would apply to interior and exterior improvements.Unrelated to the grants, Everett also brought up alcohol ordinances that govern the county and city. He told the council to consider changing your ordinance to match that of the county.ŽBecause if you move I-10 services, sewer and water down (State Road) 77-South proper, you're going to see those type of businesses wanting to come to that intersection,Ž he said.Moments before making the comment, Everett reminded the council of a missed economic impact opportunity for jobs, sales tax and ad valoremŽ when a business decided not to come to the area due to, to some degree, alcohol sales regulations.Currently, the city regulates the licensed sale of alcohol within 1,000 feet of any church, school or public park and within 300 feet of a dwelling or residence unless two-thirds of property areas within that area give consent. Last year, the county adopted the state's regulation of no sale within 500 feet of a school and added no sale within 500 feet of a church, which is down by 1,500 feet from its previous regulation.Officials said the discussion of alcohol regulation is not expected to be on the agenda at Tuesday's regular council meet-ing, to be held at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 1442 Jackson Ave.Chipley: Utility fee changes coming Staff ReportCHIPLEY „ The Spanish Trail Playhouse production of On Golden PondŽ opened Friday to kick off the theatre's 11th Season, but there is still time to get tickets for this classic show.The play will take stage again at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 10, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 11, at The Spanish Trail Playhouse, located at 680 Second Street in Chipley.Written by Earnest Thompson, On Golden PondŽ is directed by Kevin Russell and tells the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year.On Golden PondSteve Mason, Teresa Bar“ eld, and Mil Cox rehearse a scene in preparation for On Golden Pond,Ž to be staged this weekend.

WAUSAUFrom Page A1He is a retired professor, nearing eighty with heart palpitations and a failing memory„but still as tarttongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and con-tinue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fianc, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer.The boy quickly becomes the grandchildŽ the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrust-ing good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness„and slang„in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the inci-dence of a mild heart attack.Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.This production is rated PG-13 for adult situations.The cast includes Steve Mason as Norman Thayer Jr., Mil Cox as Ethel Thayer, Calvin Booth as Charlie Martin, Teresa Barfield as Chelsea Thayer Wayne, Bryce Etheridge as Billy Ray, and Steve Yates as Bill Ray. Kim Knight serves as stage managerTickets can now be purchased at the door or online at www.spanishtrail-playhouse.com. Cost is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (age 65 and up), and $10 for military (valid ID required).Russell, who is also the President and Organizer of the Spanish Trail Playhouse, encourages the public to come out, not only to enjoy the play, but also to celebrate the continuing success of the playhouse, after his efforts to resurrect community theater in Washington County.After being dormant since following its heyday in the 1960s, the curtain was raised in 2006, thanks to a commu-nity effort spearheaded by Russell, to officially reopen the Spanish Trail Playhouse."For over a decade, I have been privileged to watch this organization expand and create magic beyond my wildest expectations." said Russell. "Embraced by the Washington County School Board and supported by the community, the Spanish Trail Playhouse has been blessed to present a multitude of sea-sonal favorites. From "Steel Magnolias" to Disneys ever popular "Beauty and the Beast," we have constantly worked to ensure the execution of our mission statement: Bringing Live Quality Theatre to Washington County.""As we begin our 11th season, we do so by remem-bering those that paved the way for us, and by looking forward to our future ƒ we have created a season full of familiar favorites, as well as a few you may be experienc-ing for the first time. Theatre, in itself, is a collaborative art. It takes the performers, the crew, the staff, and yes, even you, our guest to make the theatre come alive." PLAYFrom Page A1Steve Mason is in character as Norman Thayer Jr. [PHOTO COURTESY OF SPANISH TRAIL PLAYHOUSE] The Senate measure includes numerous provi-sions, including allowing tribal casinos to offer craps and roulette, making clear that fantasy sports are not gambling under Florida law and lowering slot-machine tax rates from 35 percent to 25 percent. The House proposal (HB 7067) would allow the tribe to conduct banked-card games, such as blackjack, at five of its seven facilities, but it doesnt include such things as allowing slot machines at referendum counties. GAMBLINGFrom Page A1 It just doesnt make sense to do it,Ž Steube said of the requirement that everyone move their clocks an hour forward in the spring and an hour backward in the fall. Hopefully Congress will let states opt into daylight saving time and standard time.ŽStaying in daylight saving time year-round would mean later sunsets in the fall and winter and more opportuni-ties for outdoor recreation. One lawmaker summarized the impact as lighter, later, longer.ŽSteube said he has heard from tourism businesses that would benefit from having more evening daylight time for people to shop. He also has heard from mayors across the state who say the bill would save money by not having to use as much outdoor lighting at municipal athletic fields.The only opposition, Steube said, has come from those who worry about not having Floridas clocks in sync with other East Coast states. One way to solve that: Institute year-round daylight saving time nationwide, Steube said.Id make it the whole country,Ž he said. So wed just do away with moving the clocks.ŽThe daylight saving time bill passed the Senate 33-2 Tuesday. It already had cleared the House.Steube may have an oppor-tunity to continue pushing the issue. He is running for Congress this year.

[SPECIAL TO WCN] Carolina Jessamine By Christine Sexton The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Fire-fighters, police officers and EMTs who cannot work because of job-related post-traumatic stress disorder could qualify for expanded benefits under a bill heading to Gov. Rick Scott.The House unanimously approved the measure (SB 376) Monday, two days after the Senate passed it. Scott is expected to sign the bill, spearheaded by Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plan-tation, and Rep. Matt Willhite, D-Wellington. Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis of Panama City also was a strong pro-ponent of the bill.Matt Puckett, execu-tive director of the Florida Police Benevolent Association, said the changes in the bill can go a long way toward helping first responders and predicted that it would save lives.In Florida, injured workers are prevented from receiving workers compensation insurance benefits „ either medical benefits or lost wages „ for mental or nervous injuries not accompanied by physi-cal injuries.The law was changed in 2007, though, to allow first responders to obtain medical benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder without having accom-panying physical injuries. However, they still are precluded from obtaining lost wages for post-trau-matic stress disorder.The bill would change that if police officers, firefighters, emergencymedical technicians and paramedics meet certain criteria.First responders who have witnessed the death of a minor or witnessed a death that involved grievous bodily harm of a nature that shocks the conscienceŽ could file workers compensation claims for lost wages. The first responders would be required to show by clear and convincing evidence that the events were the source of the PTSD.The bill also would require cities, counties and other entities that employ first responders to provide educational training related to mental health awareness, prevention, mitigation and treatment.PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events. Symptoms generally begin within the first three months after the trauma, although there can be delays of months or even years before the criteria for the diagnosis are met, according to a staff analysis of the bill.Before the House voted to pass the bill Monday, Rep. Erin Grall shared a suicide letter written by an Indian River County fire-rescue chief and posted on Facebook.Twenty-seven years of deaths and babies dying in your hands is a memory that you will never get rid of. It haunted me daily until now. My love to my crews be safe take care. I love you all,Ž Grall read through tears, noting that the chief was her husbands cousin and brother-like figure.Until something like this happens so close, you dont realize the defi-ciencies in the system,Ž Grall said, discussing how first responders can be impaired by the work they do.Puckett said the bill takes a giant stepŽ in helping first responders address PTSD associated with their jobs.Puckett hopes the train-ing and education will make family members and co-workers more aware about the warning signs of PTSD and can encourage treatment to prevent the disorder from rising to the level that it prevents first responders from being able to work.Are we identifying folks with this? Are family members, co-workers able to identify that this person is exhibiting these PTSD signs, and are we setting it up to where people are actually willing to admit it?Ž Puckett said. Maybe with this legislation people will start seeking treat-ment sooner.ŽA 2015 survey of 4,000 first responders found that 6.6 percent had attempted suicide, which is more than 10 times the rate in the general population.Patronis, who supported the bill through the process, issued a statement saying he was proud that Florida changed the law.First responders show up for us every day, without hesitation or ques-tioning our politics, and today Florida showed up for them,Ž said Patronis, whose job includes serving as state fire marshal.Patronis also took a shot at the Florida League of Cities in the statement, saying to those who refused to support this measure from the begin-ning: we got this done without you.ŽFlorida shows up for rst responders with PTSDShepherd's Gate Church distributes food, holds sh fry

Bare“ eld EDITOR Carol Kent Wyatt PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett The Democratic Party appears to be taking quite a gamble in formulating a platform to retake Congress in the fall. Eight months from Election Day, Democrats are advocating amnesty for illegal immigrants, calling for sweeping gun control, denouncing tax cuts that gave millions of middle-class Americans pay raises or bonuses and, still, opposing anything said, done, or proposed by President Donald Trump. But is one leg of that stool beginning to warp? Time will tell, but Monday seemed to indicate its foundation was a bit shaky. Six months ago, Trump gave Congress until Monday to draft legislation to determine the fate of nearly 700,000 Dreamers „ the young people enrolled in the constitutionally dubious Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. Trump announced in September that if lawmakers didnt act he would end DACA and begin deportation proceedings of people whose only home has been America. Outrage, and legal action, ensued from immigrants advocates. Two months ago, federal judges in California and New York ruled that Trump had failed to adequately justify the basis for ending the program „ thereby upholding a program that former President Barack Obama repeatedly doubted he had the power to implement, and even though federal law states the president has authority over immigration law. That meant the deadline will not take effect. But in the interim since his announcement, Trump conducted negotiations with lawmakers and once pledged to sign whateverŽ bill Congress sent him „ although he seemed to backtrack from that later. The president also pledged to expand the DACA proposal to an additional 1.1 million Dreamers who are not formally enrolled in the program. That was in exchange for funding for the wall along the Mexican border. Meanwhile, the Trump administration has approved two-year DACA renewal applications at a higher clip than the Obama administration. Yet Democrats in Congress responded by shutting down the government by fighting to get DACA reform in a funding bill, and rejecting money for the wall. The ACLU and other groups used the approach of the deadline to blame inertia on Trump and GOP lawmakers. But other activists are pointing at Democrats. Representatives of the Seed Project, which advocates for illegal immigrants, conducted a sit-in at Democratic National Committee headquarters on Monday, demanding the partys lawmakers work for a cleanŽ bill that helps DACA recipients. As Mondays deadline passed, the major media offered headlines noting that DACA has a dwindling,Ž diminished,Ž or easingŽ sense of urgency „ suggesting the issue has lost steam, or taken a back seat to other issues such as guns, among the Dreamers biggest advocates, the Democrats. Moreover, much of Trumps base saw capitulation in the willingness by him and immigrant-friendly GOP lawmakers to compromise on Dreamers „ indicating to them the Democrats had outfoxed him. Meanwhile, voters wont lose sight of the fact that activists for illegal immigrants continually file actions to block Trumps policies in courts in blue states, highlighting the fact that they see illegal immigrants as natural constituents of Democrats. Yes, Republicans hold all the power in Congress. But they need at least nine senators to make anything happen. Trump has repeatedly revealed a willingness to assist Dreamers. As long as the Democrats refuse to concede on some point „ or in other words, simply practice politics as we once did „ they will be seen as the obstructionists. It seems risky for Democrats to push so hard for the immigrants agenda in the first place. It increasingly appears that its even riskier to fail to follow through. A version of this editorial first appeared in The Ledger, a sister paper with Gatehouse Media.A risky bet for the midterms ANOTHER VIEW Im already dreading it. On Sunday, March 11, at 2 a.m., daylight saving time, the practice of moving our clocks forward one hour in the spring and backward one hour in the fall, will commence. When I wake on March 11 at my regular time „ which will depend on the pub I was drowning my DST sorrows at the night before „ I will be short by one hour. I will be in a stupor, for the most part, until November, when I must set my clocks back one hour „ at which time I will officially resume my perpetual confusion about what the heck time it is. Come Sunday, half the clocks in my house „ those that have been off by an hour since November „ will display the correct time. The other half, which have displayed the correct time since November, will be wrong. Thus, when I have business meetings or social engagements to attend, Ill be one hour late or one hour early, but hardly ever on time. Daylight saving time was first implemented in Thunder Bay, Canada, in 1908. The goal was to squeeze an extra hour of daylight out of a typical day. The United States adopted the concept in 1918, but, reports TimeandDate.com, without uniform rules across all states, it resulted in widespread chaos in commerce and transportation. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 addressed that challenge by synchronizing the switch dates across the country. In an effort to save energy following the 1973 oil embargo, Congress changed DST dates again „ then changed them again in 1976. From 1987 to 2006, the country observed yet another set of DST dates „ which changed one more time in 2007, to our current March-and-November cycle. Millions of Americans have been befuddled ever since. I think a grand conspiracy is under way in which clear-headed morning peopleŽ are attempting to use DST to swindle us night-time peopleŽ and swipe our girlfriends while we are in a continuous state of fogginess. I also think Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts are in collusion to fatten profits. Starbucks coffee has always been ridiculously expensive, but et tu, Dunkin? I got a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee recently that was just shy of Starbucks exorbitant iced-coffee cost. I suspect price-fixing. I suspect federal officials are being bribed to keep adjusting DST rules, so that we are forever groggy and grumpy, conditions that allow Big Coffee to fleece us. Where is Special Counsel Robert Mueller when you need him? In any event, an endless DST debate continues. Proponents of DST say it gives us more daylight in spring and summer, which gets us out of the house and makes us happier. Opponents say it makes spring and summer mornings darker, which makes us less productive at work most of the year. They also say it causes us to consume more energy. Im unable to participate in the conversation, however, because I havent finished my first pot of coffee. As I see it, if DST is going to keep us forever disoriented, why adjust our clocks forward and backward by only one hour? Why not move them forward to 2030 so I can begin collecting Social Security „ or backward to 1984, when I had a 29-inch waist and was still able to date really good-looking ladies? Whatever the case, my mother is especially worried about my difficulty adjusting to DST changes. She jokes that Ill be late for my own funeral. Or an hour early.Never time for daylight savingA new Center for Migration Studies (CMS) report showed that between 2010 and 2016, illegal immigration declined 8 percent, down from 11.7 million to 10.8 million, its lowest level in 15 years. The illegal immigrant population is always in flux, and some refer to think tanks totals as guesstimates. But after analyzing United States and Mexican government statistics, Pew Research came to the same conclusion as CMS. During the period studied, CMS researched six of the top ten states in which illegal immigrants reside „ Illinois, North Carolina, California, New York, Arizona and Georgia „ and noted that they had at least 10 percent declines. A major contributor to the illegal immigrant population dropoff is that, according to CMS senior visiting fellow Robert Warren, migrants are returning home in ever-larger numbers. In 1990, about 200,000 left the United States each year; the most recent data showed that the totals departing are 500,000 to 600,000 annually. Debunking a long-held theory that illegal immigrants never leave the U.S. Warren called that notion falseŽ and said that one out of three immigrants leaveŽ after having worked for a number of years...Ž If employed illegal immigrants leave the U.S. then by extension, the jobs they once held become available, and American workers could fill the vacancies. Evidence that Americans, especially minorities, are in fact re-entering the labor force is abundant, and that the pay scale has increased correspondingly. The monthly jobs report from the National Federation of Independent Businesses found that employee compensation is at a 30-year high. Twenty-two percent of owners identified locating qualified employees as their biggest problem „ a greater headache than taxes or government regulations. Accordingly, a net 24 percent anticipate raising worker compensation, and a net 31 percent reported theyve increased compensation to attract or retain employees, the highest level since December 2000. Workers employed in specific industries like clothing manufacturing and food preparation have been among the immediate beneficiaries of reduced job competition. CNN reported that, based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics January data, clothing manufacturing wages increased 14 percent over prior months. At Chicagos Cloverhill Bakery, 800 workers didnt return to work after they were identified as illegally present by a federal audit of the companys employment records. Most of their replacements are African-Americans who passed an E-Verify background check, and now earn $14 an hour, while the displaced workers earned $10 an hour. Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia President Patrick Harker spoke to the Philadelphia Economic Association and linked employment tightnessŽ to fewer immigrants available for hire. Furthermore, the Clinton and Obama administrations readily acknowledged the basic supply and demand effect in labor economics.Illegal immigration declines, forcing wages up Tom Purcell J o e G u z z a r d i Joe Guzzardi

The states only abortion provider pledged to sue, and the attorney general said he expected a tough legal battle ahead.Lawmakers in the Republican-controlled Legislature appeared not only to expect, but to encourage such challenges in hopes the issue will eventually make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court.The Mississippi measure seems like a pretty simple bill designed to test the viability line that the Supreme Court has drawn,Ž said David Forte, a law professor at Ohios Cleveland State University.SANTIAGO, CHILE 11 nations sign Paci“ c trade pact as Trump plans US tariffsTrade ministers from 11 Pacific Rim countries signed a sweeping free trade agreement Thursday to streamline trade and slash tariffs just hours before Presi-dent Donald Trump announced his plans to impose new tariffs on aluminum and steel to protect U.S. producers.Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partner-ship last year, causing fears that it would not prosper without its most influential country. But the remaining 11 members pressed ahead, saying they were showing resolve against protectionism through global trade.The ministers dropped key provisions that the Americans had required on protection of intellectual property, among others. BEIRUTSyria aid convoy on hold, top UN of“ cial appeals for calmA top U.N. aid official appealed to the Syrian govern-ment and its Russian backers for a cessation of hostilities in east-ern Ghouta on Thursday when a second convoy with desper-ately needed aid was postponed after government forces split the enclave in two, creating an evolving, unpredictable situa-tion on the ground. Jan Egeland said it is impos-sibleŽ to deliver aid to the rebel-held eastern suburbs of Damascus amid the current fighting, which he described as the worst ever.Im very worried for a repeat of very many of the bad things we saw in the final days of the battle of Aleppo but to some extent this is worse,Ž he told The Associated Press.ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA African Union of“ cial: Africa moving past Trumps slur The top U.S. diplomat and a top African official tried Thursday to move past Pres-ident Donald Trumps slur about Africa, deeming it a closed matter that need not be revisited.I believe that this incident is of the past,Ž African Union Commission Chairman Moussa Faki said at a news conference with visiting U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.The two were questioned repeatedly by U.S. and inter-national media about the January incident, in which Trump referred in a private meeting to shithole countriesŽ in Africa, triggering widespread outrage across the continent. Neither were eager to dwell on the topic.MEXICO CITY Mexico says Playa del Carmen safe; president to go there Mexican officials said late Wednesday that the Caribbean resort city of Playa del Carmen is safe, despite a U.S. security alert.The government of the Caribbean coast state of Quintana Roo said that Pres-ident Enrique Pena Nieto was scheduled to attend an ocean conservation conference in Playa del Carmen on Thursday.All tourism and economic activity in Playa del Carmen continues in a normal manner,Ž the state government wrote in a statement, noting that hotel occupancy at the resort was 80 percent.

In Russia, a candid apology from a pow-erful legislator to women he sexually harassed.Many of the International Womens Day events on Thursday powerfully echoed the #MeToo movement that has mobilized women against sexual violence and work-place harassment.Demonstrators filled the streets in several Asian cities, including Manila, Seoul and New Delhi. Clad in pink and purple shirts, the activists in Manila lambasted Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, calling him among the worst violators of womens rights in Asia. Human rights groups have condemned Dutertes sexist remarks, including a suggestion that troops shoot female communist rebels in the genitals.In Pakistans largest city, Karachi, a throng of activists was joined by a victim of one of the acid attacks frequently perpetrated in the country by embittered men. Black glasses covered part of her badly burned face.Hundreds of women gath-ered in Afghanistans capital, Kabul, to commemorate the occasion and urge more prog-ress on womens political rights, education and safety. During Taliban rule, many women would have been afraid to leave their homes.In Spain, major unions esti-mated that 5.3 million people joined the strike, which targeted gender violence and unequal pay. The day culmi-nated with street protests in scores of cities. The theme was If we stop, the world stops.ŽSocial services worker Teresa Sonsur, protesting in Madrid, said she wanted to end workplace discrimina-tion at her agency.The women are doing all the hard work, dealing with the customers, but in the positions of management it is always men,Ž the 38-year-old woman said.French companies that treat women unequally may soon face new pres-sure and penalties. President Emmanuel Macron says his government is going to name and shame such companies. He predicted positive changes because no one wants to be the worst student in the class.ŽAnother government ini-tiative would fine companies with more than 50 employees if there is an unjustifiedŽ gender wage gap.The left-leaning French daily Liberation said that for one day only, men would have to pay 50 cents more than women for the newspaper, a reminder that women in France, on average, are paid 25 percent less than men.In a striking development in Russia, the head of Parliaments foreign affairs committee apologized after being accused of sexual harassment by several female journalists. Noting it was International Womens Day, Leonid Slutsky said on Facebook, I am using the occasion to ask forgiveness from those of you whom I freely or involuntarily caused suffering.ŽThe apology came after demonstrators, including opposition presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak, picketed outside Parliament, demanding Slutskys resignation.In Italy, actress Asia Argento, who helped sparked the #MeToo campaign last year, said she is launching a new movement, #WeToo, to unite women against a power imbalance favoring men.Argento told Radio 24 that her aim is to finally change the patriarchal system so rooted in our culture, not just in Italy.ŽArgento helped embolden other women to report sexual assault and harassment when she accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of rape in an expose by The New Yorker. She faced a backlash in Italy, with critics question-ing why she waited 20 years to come forward.German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a video mes-sage that the quest for greater gender equality in Germany and worldwide must continue.Many women before us have made sacrifices and fought persistently so that women would have more rights,Ž she said. But theres still a lot to do.ŽMany activities on Intl Womens DayProtesters take part in a Womens Day march Thursday in Warsaw, Poland.

Gwala said one of the men had a gun, according to police.ZURICHBlatter: N. American bid afraid to lose 2026 CupThe North American bid to host the 2026 World Cup now seems afraidŽ of losing to Morocco, former FIFA president Sepp Blat-ter said Thursday.A change in strategy this week gave the leaders of the American, Canadian and Mexican soccer federations equal status in a bid that has been heavily favored to win the hosting rights on June 13 in Moscow. The reshuffle reduced the role of previous bid chairman Sunil Gulati, the most senior American in FIFA who served on the soccer bodys executive commit-tee under Blatter.They give the impres-sion that they are not any longer very sure that they will win, thats my impression,Ž Blatter said. But I dont know why they are afraid.ŽLast month, Blatter wrote on Twitter that Morocco was the logical hostŽ of the 2026 event. By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressMIAMI „ Dwyane Wade went to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High hoping to spread some goodwill and bring much-needed smiles to faces of students and teachers.He also went to listen „ and was impressed by what the kids said.Speaking Thursday about his surprise visit the previous day to the school in Parkland, Florida were 17 people were shot and killed last month, the Miami Heat guard said he was stunned to see how well-organized the Douglas students are already in their quest for fast and substantive societal change.They are well-prepared and well-aware of what they need to do and what they want to do and the change they want to see,Ž Wade said. Its great. Its great to hear. Its great to see that, because I come from a community in Chicago where our youth are get-ting killed daily and dont have the same voice, dont have the same light on them that Parkland has. These kids understand what they have.ŽNumerous students posted video and photos of Wades visit on social media. Only a few of Wades closest advisers were aware of his plan to go to the school Wednesday in advance, and students made clear his visit provided a huge emotional lift.Greatest moment of my life,Ž student Joey Pelose said of the Wade visit. Wades family has been touched multiple times by gun violence, including when his cousin „ a mother of four „ was shot and killed on a Chicago street in 2016, with police saying she was not the intended target.The shooting in Parkland has affected him deeply as well, not just for the schools proximity to Miami and to a school that one of his sons attends, but also because one of the victims was buried in a Wade jersey. Wade has also met with the family of that teen, Joaquin Oliver, and promised them that he would keep using his voice to help facilitate change.Wades visit was one of several examples of how the sports world keeps trying to help the school heal.Major League Baseball teams all wore Stone-man Douglas hats in their spring-training openers. Last week, a contingent of representatives from the Heat (including Spoel-stra and players Udonis Haslem, Justise Winslow and Kelly Olynyk, plus Haslems wife Faith), the Florida Panthers, the Miami Marlins and Miami Dolphins all privately met with five families of stu-dents who were wounded in the Feb. 14 massacre.Earlier this week, the Panthers arranged for the schools hockey team to hoist and skate with the Stanley Cup.Wade glad Parkland students are using their voice Mike Schultz, who is preparing to compete in the 2018 Winter Paralympics in South Korea, poses for a photo in his shop in St. Cloud, Minn. [PHOTOS BY JASON WACHTER/ST. CLOUD TIMES VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Paralympic snowboarder designs innovative gear for himself and his rivalsBy Pat GrahamThe Associated PressAdaptive snowboarder Mike Schultz could very well have the winning formula at the Paralympics „ whether or not he even crosses the finish line in first.He is the architect behind some of the most cutting edge prosthetic components out there, which is no surprise considering hes been tinkering with technology and testing it himself since losing his left leg above the knee a decade ago fol-lowing a snowmobile accident.There will be around 30 male and female athletes from six different countries at the Para-lympic Games in South Korea using Schultzs Moto KneeŽ (constructed to withstand high-impact stress), Versa FootŽ (featuring adjustable shock absorbers) or both.He just might be beaten by his own creations. Thats almost a win-win situation for the worlds top-ranked snow-board-cross and banked slalom boarder. Almost.Me winning would be better,Ž cracked the 36-year-old from St. Cloud, Minnesota, who was voted the flag bearer for Team USA during the open-ing ceremony Friday. Ive got some secret stuff. Ill share it with everybody at the end of March.I do take a lot of pride in knowing that Ive helped these athletes step up their performance game a little bit „ or a lot. Its very rewarding to see these athletes really bring their A game and do the level of riding that they all do.ŽHis life was altered in December 2008 during a snow-mobile race in Michigan. He was making a move in a down-hill section when he lost his balance and was thrown from his sled. His left knee hyper-extended 180 degrees, with his lower leg ending up near his chest. The main nerve to his leg was severed. In an essay on The Players Tribune, Schultz said he went through 42 units of blood, but the reality was that the best way for me to go forward was to amputate at the mid-thigh.ŽNew challenge „ he just didnt know what.I kind of figured my competitive days were over,Ž Schultz said. But you know what? Once I started feeling better and healthier and learned to walk on my first prosthetic leg, I realized Im not going to be satisfied with just walking around.ŽWithin a few months, he was riding his dirt bike again. And shortly after that, on a pros-thetic leg he designed, Schultz captured a silver medal at the 2009 Summer X Games in Moto X racing adaptive. It felt just like gold.In 2010, he started his com-pany BioDapt, where he designs and custom-fits prosthetics out of a workshop behind his house. His companys mission is simple: Manufacture the highest quality and highly versatile components that allow amputees to participate in sports and activities.ŽDabbling in the world of snowboarding never really crossed his mind. That is, until an adaptive boarder saw him riding snowmobiles at Winter X and asked if the technology might be applied to his sport. I was like, Well, I better go give that a try,Ž Schultz said.So thats how he became a snowboarder. But the learning curve was steep.I had my fair share of injuries and hard hits,Ž said Schultz, who was recently featured on a box of Kelloggs Frosted Flakes. But Im an athlete, so I pick things up fairly quick.ŽTheres a reason his products are in demand „ theyre state-of-the-art.His Moto KneeŽ design mimics the action of the quad-riceps muscle. His Versa FootŽ offers shock absorbers that control toe pressure and ankle resistance.Two-time Paralympian Amy Purdy uses the Versa Foot.Ž Fellow snowboarder Brenna Huckaby happens to be sponsored by Schultzs company „ her prosthetic components made in purple to match her hair. Also sponsored is 20-year-old Noah Elliott, who lost his left leg to osteosarcoma bone cancer and was inspired by Schultz after seeing him on a talk show. Theyve become good friends. Elliott also happens to be the No. 2-ranked rider in the world behind Schultz.

** Washington County News | Saturday, March 10, 2018 A9By Melissa Bailey Kaiser Health NewsLynn Blacks mother-in-law, who had lupus and lung cancer, was rushed into a hospital intensive care unit last summer with shortness of breath. As she lay in bed, intubated and unresponsive, a parade of doctors told the family all good news.Ž A cardiologist reported the patients heart was fine. An oncologist announced that the substance infiltrating her lungs was not cancer. An infectious-disease doctor assured the family, Weve got her on the right antibiotic.Ž With each doctors report, Black recalled, most of her family felt this tremendous sense of relief.Ž But Black, a doctor herself, knew the physicians were avoiding the truth: Shes 100 percent dying.Ž It became my role,Ž Black said, to tell her family the difficult news that her mother-in-law, who was in her mid-80s, was not going to make it out of the hospital alive. Indeed, she died there within about a week. The experience highlights a common problem in medicine, Black said: Doctors can be so focused on trying to fix each ailment that no one is addressing the big picture.Ž Now Black, along with hundreds of clinicians at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, is getting trained to talk to seriously ill patients about their goals, values „ and prognoses „ while theres time to spare. The doctors are using a script based on the Serious Illness Conversation Guide, first created by Drs. Atul Gawande and Susan Block at Ariadne Labs. Since its inception in Boston in 2012, the guide has been used to train over 6,500 clinicians worldwide, said Dr. Rachelle Bernacki, associate director of the Serious Illness Care Program at Ariadne Labs. At Mass General, Dr. Juliet Jacobsen, a palliative care physician, serves as medical director for the Continuum Project, a large-scale effort to quickly train clinicians to have these conversations, document them and share what they learn with one another. The project ramped up in January with the first session in a series that aims to reach 250 primary care providers at the hospital. For patients with advanced cancer, end-of-life conversations with clinicians take place a median of 33 days before a patients death, research shows. When patients have end-stage diagnoses, fewer than a third of families recall having end-of-life conversations with physicians, another study found. Thats despite evidence that patients have better quality of life, fewer hospitalizations, more and earlier hospice care and higher satisfaction when they talk to doctors or other clinicians about their values and goals, according to recent research. At a recent training session, Jacobsen gave clinicians a laminated page with scripted language to help them along. When the participants roleplayed with professional actors, difficulties quickly emerged. Dr. Thalia Krakower, a primary care physician, faced an emotional patientŽ whose condition was on the decline. I cant imagine it being any worse,Ž said the patient, hanging her head in tears. How long sho uld we let them be silent and sad?Ž Krakower asked Jacobsen. We always step in too soon.Ž Physicians let patients speak an average 18 seconds before interrupting them, research has found. Jacobsen encouraged doctors to allow more silence, and to respond to patients emotions, not just to their words. The scripted conversation is quite different from what doctors have been trained to do, Jacobsen acknowledged. It doesnt aim to reach any decision, nor to fill out end-of-life paperwork. For the average doctor, this might feel like youre not getting anything done,Ž she said. The goal is to step back from day-to-day problem-solving and talk about the patients understanding of their illness, their hopes and worries, and the trajectory of their disease. In a pilot at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston, Jacobsen noted, the conversations typically lasted 22 to 26 minutes. At another moment during roleplay, Jacobsen stepped in when a doctor skipped over the section in the script where she was supposed to share prognostic information. The topic is avoided for many reasons, Jacobsen later said: Clinicians schedules are crammed. They may not want to scare families with a timeline that turns out to be wrong. And they may not know what language to use, especially when the disease trajectory is uncertain. When a doctors message moves abruptly from everythings greatŽ to shes dying,Ž Jacobsen said, patients and their families dont have enough time to adjust to the bad news. To address that problem, Jacobsens team suggests language that helps clinicians discuss a prognosis without asserting certainty: I worry the decline we have seen is going to continue,Ž or, I worry something serious may happen in the next few months.Ž After the training, Jacobsens team plans to follow up with doctors to make sure they are having the conversations with patients. The guide is also being rolled out at Baylor Scott & White Health in Texas, Lowell General Hospital in Massachusetts, the University of Pennsylvania and hospitals in 34 foreign countries, Bernacki said. HEALTH LONELINESSNEGATIVE EFFECTS ON HEALTHA recent Time Health story says theres nothing wrong with enjoying solitude, but being lonely is another matter.

Many do only cardio activities, others flock to weightlifting exclusively. We have our cross-trainers, crossfitters and yo gis as well. Our move today is a plank with alternating levers, a challenge no matter your level of fitness. All you need is a flat surface to lay your yoga mat on. This move will focus on your whole core, but by adding alternating levers, you will be working your upper and lower body as well. This move focuses on balance, too, and everyone will benefit from that. Begin this move by positioning yourself on your hands and knees. If your balance is compromised, keep your starting point here and add your levers in. Otherwise, you will extend your legs out on your toes, and hold your body in a planking position for your starting point. Lift your left arm and right leg at the same time, reaching your arm straight out in front of you and extending your leg straight behind. Keep this extension slow and methodical. Once you reach and extend, return to starting position and proceed with the opposite arm and leg. Continue this alternating move for at least 8 to 10 extensions on each side. Take a short break, then move on to your next set. Give yourself at least three sets of 10 extensions to really feel this move.

[SCOTT WHEELER/THE LEDGER] Serious Illness Conversation GuideIt was created in 2002 by palliative care experts at Ariadne Labs. The guide has been used to train over 6,500 clinicians worldwide. The guide is a list of patient-centered questions designed to assist clinicians in gaining a more thorough understanding of their patients life in order to inform future care decisions. The questions address: € A patients understanding of their illness € Their preferences for information € Their personal goals € Their fears and worries, as well as their sources of strength € The abilities they “ nd most important to their daily life and tradeoffs they are willing to make for the possibility of more time € How much their loved ones know about their wishesSource: https://www.ariadnelabs.org/ areas-of-work/serious-illness-care/Dr. Corinne Alexander, a palliative care physician at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, talks to actor John Carozza, whos playing the role of a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, during a training session in January.

Then I watched as a man blew through the door behind me without a word. Its a simple thing „ gratitude. Is our society one in which there is no gratitude? I ran across a person once who used to say please and thank youŽ when asking you to do something, it really startled me. Almost like they were just taking care of the niceties before the fact, just in case. Yet it didnt feel appreciative. What is the line between expecting and appreciative? Being thankful and expectant? But what is true gratitude? According to my teenager, its showing appreciation. Its being thankful and showing appreciation verses just being thankful.Ž I agree wholeheartedly. When pressed, my daughter connected gratitude with being a happier person, a person with less envy and less drama. I took notes... lots of notes. How can you work to be more grateful? This is my goal, and the more I think on it, the harder it seems. Beyond thanking the person who holds the door, how can I become more aware and grateful for the blessings in my life? For the things that enrich my life, make it nicer? I made a pledge to start back with the old timey habit of thank-you notes, a simple yet kind way of showing gratitude for things. I bought a little box of notes from my favorite store and then set them out on my desk as a reminder. They got dusty. Then I thought maybe if I stuffed a few in my purse, I would use them more ... Ive sent out one. So I thought that I would begin to say thank you more. Not just the routine thanks but also saying it in true moments of appreciation. It turns out that people do more for me during the day than I ever realized. Thank youŽ to the driver who let me go in front of them when traffic was backed up, the client who waited on hold while I finished helping a person, my kid who hugged me for no reason beyond the fact that I looked like I needed it.Ž Life is full of chances to be grateful and yet, we arent very grateful. We all have people who love us each and every day „ the ones who think of us and put us first„ yet we take them for granted. When we are grateful for those people, we forgive more, we love bigger, we are less anxious and we are resilient in the face of adversity. Turns out, being grateful to those in our immediate circle makes us better people. Its almost as if we recognize the good and strive to be the same. So then the question becomes, how do I apply that to my life as a whole? I noticed that during the Thanksgiving countdown, my social media is full of peoples Im thankful forŽ lists. So I wondered, could I get to the point where I was grateful each and every day for those blessings and awesome things in my life?Ž I added gratitude to my prayer time. Instead of just asking God for guidance and help with my day-today life, I began to thank him and show appreciation for my blessings. The very things that have enriched my life all come from God. The good things all comes from him. Showing my gratitude is easy whenever I think about how a mazing my blessings are. So I began to list my gratefulsŽ at night: Im grateful that I have a career that fulfills me. Im grateful that my husband fixes everything I break. Im grateful that I have a 4x4 to maneuver in snow. Im grateful that my family appreciates me. Im grateful that my dog didnt puke on the carpet and choose the the tile instead... The list is very long and lengthy when I start breaking it down. Now I work to put that habit into action during my day. So what and who are you grateful for? Kalynn Brazeal is a con servative, Christian wife/ mom/country girl carrying around an MBA, several decades of business experience and a strong opinion. Now living in the remoteness of North Dakota, she continues to share her column on life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and cake. Gratitude K a l y n n B r a z e a l Kalynn BrazealFr. Feddon
