The study was released by the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.There are many factors that impact these rankings, but the work of community partners, the medical community, and community leaders is very important in improving the health of the county,Ž Karen Johnson, Health Officer for Florida Health rankings improve in Washington, HolmesBy News Service of FloridaMoving quickly, Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed a nearly $89 billion state budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1 and issued $64 million in vetoes. Scott signed the budget just five days after the House and Senate approved the spending plan to end the annual legislative session. In a lengthy bill-signing letter, Scott touted such things as tax cuts and increased funding for school safety. The vetoes eliminated money for dozens of local projects across the state. In signing the budget, Scott disregarded calls by school superintendents for a special session to increase funding for public-school operations. Scott noted that the budget, which he calls the Securing Floridas FutureŽ budget, will be his last before leaving office.

Representatives from Rock of Deliverance, 5414 Obies St., learned Monday evening the conditions for expansion: they must add the Town of Ebroto their insurance policy and increase the policy to a minimum of $300,000.The decision came after Ebro Town Council months ago deemed the expansion a possible liability to the Town.

VERNONFrom Page A1These rankings are a snapshot of the health of counties across the country and they emphasize that health is not a singular e ort but a combined work in progress across all community partnersTests revealed she had MD. As the years have gone by, life has become progressively harder. A simple fall can have permanent effects.In January this year she broke her left leg while trans-ferring from her wheelchair to use the restroom. After one month of in-patient therapy, Corbin said she has been nearly house-ridden ever since. Out of commitment to ensuring her safety, she and her husband William Wages felt it would be safer for her to not risk injury by climbing in and out of their truck.They hope the community will help them with a pur-chase that would grant Corbin an opportunity to leave home again. They have had their hearts set on acquiring a Dodge Caravan handicap van. It would make it where she can be there to be involved in the family events,Ž Wages said. It would be really awesome to have her with us and the van will help us to be together.ŽIt costs $50,000 new; but they said theyve found on Craigslist a used one for $29,000. Theycreated a GoFundMe account to make the purchase. As of Monday, they had raised $380 total from five donors.Although they have been approved for financing, the couple cannot afford to pay two vehicle payments, they said. Their plan is to raise enough money to sell their cur-rent vehicle and make a down payment on the handicap van. Theyre about $7,000 short.It would mean to just be able to go places with my family, to be able to go to church, to be able to visit my family members,Ž a sobbing Corbin said Monday. I like going and seeing my grandparents. Just spending time with my family, going on road trips.ŽIve been here for three weeks now and I havent been able to go anywhere or do any-thing,Ž she added. It feels good to just get out sometime and be out and about like a normal person.

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Library fines for items borrowed beyond their due date are one of lifes petty offenses that occupy a prominent spot in our culture. Racking up exorbitant fees, and being held accountable for a modest transgression when more serious crimes go unpunished, have been the subject of countless jokes. For example, the classic TV sitcom SeinfeldŽ had a famous episode in which a blunt library copŽ grills Jerry about a book he allegedly failed to return in 1971. The fines are no laughing matter to libraries, which have imposed them not to shame, harass or profit off violators, but rather to create incentive to return materials in a timely manner so other patrons may enjoy them. However, it may be time to rethink. In Volusia County, for example, they are considering lowering library fines for kids. The Volusialibrary system is owed $27,148 in overdue childrens materials, and that about one-fourth of unexpired juvenile library cards have had their borrowing privileges revoked due to excessive fines. The systems pursuit of all late fees has had diminishing returns, andits really not about the money „ fine collections account for only about 1.6 percent of the librarys annual revenue. Its about getting people to return the stuff they checked out. Research has indicated those fines fall disproportionately hardest on lowincome families, often the people who most need free and affordable library services, because their children are dramatically less likely to have access to books at home. It makes little sense to deny access to a key clientele. Since 2010, library systems across the country have adopted a counterintuitive approach. Instead of playing library cop,Ž many have eliminated fines, while others have heavily reduced them. In October, the New York City Public Library system offered a one-time fine amnesty for all juveniles after it discovered that a fifth of all accounts held by children had been blocked due to unpaid fines. The results have been encouraging. Rather than signaling that it was OK to hoard library materials, several libraries saw an increase in circulation. Last year, Slate.com reported that 18 months after the High Plains Library District in northern Colorado eliminated almost all of its late fines, circulation rose, including a 16 percent rise within the childrens department; 95 percent of materials were returned within a week of their due date. A month after the New York City amnesty, the system saw 41,000 children and teens „ or 10 percent of those who previously had fines „ use their library cards to access resources. Of those, 11,000 hadnt used the library for at least a year. Eliminating fines on childrens materials, combined withpartnering with the public schools to give every pupil a student library account, are innovative ways to expand the reach librarys and keep them relevant. This editorial first appeared in the Daytona News Journal, a Log sister paper with GateHouse media. EDITORIALTime to rethink library nesANOTHER VIEW It is hard to open a newspaper today and not find something negative written about the state of education in the U.S. Fifty years ago our students ranked in the top five in most key educational areas as compared with students of other countries. Today they rank somewhere between numbers 18 and 25. Logic requires that we examine the factors that make up the U.S. educational plan. These include facilities, supplies and materials, curricula, supervision, teachers, and length of school year and day. If one compared any of the items listed above, who could match us? Who has better or more school facilities than we have? The same is true for supervision. We have more principals, curriculum supervisors, personnel handlers, etc. per teacher and per pupil than are available in the schools of any other country. Teachers? The primary degree for teaching in all current and former U.K. countries such as England, India, South Africa, etc. is a three year bachelors degree. In much of Asia it is a two-year degree. One cannot teach in the public schools of the U.S. without a bachelors (four-year) degree and almost half of our teachers have masters degrees. There is no question that U.S. teachers rank number one in preparation. That leaves only one factor left to compare. That is time on task. Unfortunately, the U.S. ranks well down the list of all industrialized nations in the amount of time students spend in school. The statistical reality is that we have not so much slid backwards as we have, instead, stood still, while the rest of the world has continued to change and move forward. In the mid-1960s much of the rest of the world had copied our educational system. We did it better so our students ranked higher on standardized tests. Since that time we have continued in our mid20th century pattern while our international competition has made that promote higher student achievement levels. A decade ago I visited both China and India and talked with education officials about their elementary and secondary education systems. There are a number of differences between their approach and ours. A key one can be identified as time on task.Ž Chinese junior high and high school students begin their classes at 7:30 a.m. each day and conclude the class portion of their school day at 6 p.m. They are allowed an hour for dinner with their families and then report back to their schools for 2 1 /2 hours of supervised study. They finally are released to head home at 9:30 p.m. Their schools operate six days a week for 220 days each year. In India, they have a similar schedule without the supervised study. By contrast, our students attend school 5-6 hours each day in a 180-day school year. Students in most of Asia and parts of Europe attend 7-9 hours for more than 200 days and some attend as much as 240 days. The average is two-plus additional months of school each year around the globe as opposed to the American approach. Why do we teach only 180 days? The answer is in the traditions of an agrarian society. One hundred years ago, young people were needed at home to pick cotton and take care of the stock. Our 21st century school schedule is stuck firmly in the 19th century and does not reflect the changes in our economic system. Thus, American students have a built inŽ handicap when they are compared to students in other countries who get more instruction and have more time on task in the learning process. Why shouldnt their test scores be higher? The answer to getting higher test scores is obvious. Our students need more time with their teachers. Time on task is the key.Fixing American education: Increasing time on task M a r k L H o p k i n s Mark L. Hopkins Teachers? The primary degree for teaching in all current and former U.K. countries such as England, India, South Africa, etc. is a three year bachelors degree. In much of Asia it is a twoyear degree. One cannot teach in the public schools of the U.S. without a bachelors (four-year) degree and almost half of our teachers have masters degrees.

** A6 Wednesday, March 21, 2018 | Washington County News JOBSBy ZipRecruiter.comPeg Newman, a partner at executive search firm Sanford Rose Associates, described the strangest post-interview deal-breaker shes encountered. She thought she was hiring a talented engineer who matched the skills and requirements of the job. During the offer phase the candidate provided a copy of his college diploma and his professional engineering registries,Ž says Newman. When it came to final third-party verification, which required his Social Security number, he refused to give it.Ž Red flag. Upon further verification we found he had used other engineers license numbers on the resume, and had dummied up the college diploma. We rescinded the offer with a phone call and a letter,Ž Newman said. HR professionals, recruiters, hiring managers and small-business owners all have stories to share about those deal-bre akers „ quirky, weird or unprofessional things candidates did after an interview or after a job offer. Karen A. Young is the author of Stop Knocking on My Door: Drama Free HR to Help Grow Your Business.Ž Eleven years ago she started HR Resolutions, a full-service consulting company serving clients in Harrisburg, Lancaster and York, Pennsylvania. She lists some of her biggest postinterview deal-breakers:1. Not disclosing something in your background check: Tell me before so that Im prepared and can discuss the implications/complications in advance,Ž Young said.2. Disclosing needed vacation time after the offer: This is a no-no, says Young. Reasonable time-off requests are expected when someone is changing positions, but be reasonable.3. Falsification of preemployment/post-offer paperwork: In my professional opinion, there is no recovery from this,Ž Young said.4. Badmouthing current or former employers: Posting inappropriate things on social media like I took this job even though they stink as an employer just so I could get a paycheck againŽ is a surefire deal-breaker.

Salary requirements change after interview: Set expectations from the get-go. Reiterate the salary range to the candidate in each interview round, otherwise you are wasting their time and the companys time.2. Not authorized to work in the U.S./need sponsorship outside of USCIS timeline: If your company is not in a position to sponsor visas, let the candidate know and be clear that it is no reflection of their skill set. If your company does sponsor, but it is outside the timeline, you should ask if you can follow up once the window to file presents itself.3. References do not check out or a bad reference is reported: Set up a time to speak with the candidate to talk through the negative reference or feedback received, as you never know why or what happened. Give the individual the benefit of the doubt. Newman lets candidates know that upon offer and acceptance, and once they have given notice to their current company, a final reference will be required. Good people understand that companies have a process for employment, education and related certifications and licenses,Ž says Newman. So they are generally pretty forthcoming.Ž Employers who need to rescind an offer should include a back-outŽ clause in the offer letter. Say something like this, says Newman: This offer is contingent upon satisfactory completion of a drug screen, background check and reference check. If any of the information provided proves to be false or inaccurate, the offer may be rescinded at our discretion.Ž When you have to rescind an offer, be brief and specific, says Newman: Unfortunately because of X we are going to pull the offer.ŽPost-interview deal-breakers MCN ILLUSTRATIONUpon further veri cation we found he had used other engineers license numbers on the resume, and had dummied up the college diploma. We rescinded the o er with a phone call and a letter.Ž Peg Newman

Weber and Will Weissert The Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas (AP) „ A package bomb believed to be linked to the recent bomb-ings in Austin exploded early Tuesday inside a FedEx distribution center near San Antonio, leaving one worker with minor injuries, and a second unexploded bomb was found at the same facil-ity, authorities said.Hours later, police sent a hazardous-materials team to a FedEx facility in Austin to check on a suspicious package there. There was no immediate word about whether that package con-tained explosives.FBI agent Michelle Lee said the explosion happened around 1 a.m. at a FedEx facil-ity in Schertz, which is just northeast of San Antonio and about 60 miles (95 kilometers) southwest of Austin. A worker was treated for minor injuries and released, police said. It would be silly for us not to admit that we suspect its relatedŽ to the four Austin bombings that have killed two people and injured four others since March 2, Lee said. She did not have details about the size, weight or description of the package. The package was on a con-veyer belt when it detonated. One worker reported ringing in her ears after the blast. She was treated and released from a hospital.Before it exploded, the package had been sent from Austin and was addressed to a home in Austin, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told Austin television station KXAN.The San Antonio Texas Fire Department says a pack-age bomb has exploded at a FedEx distribution center in Schertz, Texas, hurting 1 person, a FedEx employee who apparently suffered a non-life-threatening percussion-typeŽ injury from the blast. (March 20)Schertz Police Chief Michael Hansen said the intended target of the bomb was not the shipping facility or anyone in Schertz.The FedEx blast came less than two days after another bombing wounded two men Sunday night in a quiet Austin neighborhood. It was triggered by a nearly invisible tripwire, suggesting a higher level of sophisticationŽ than agents saw in three package bombs left on doorsteps, according to Fred Milanowski, agent in charge of the Houston division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.Authorities have not iden-tified the two men who were hurt Sunday, saying only that they are in their 20s and white. But William Grote told The Associated Press on Monday that his grandson was one of them and that he had what appeared to be nails embedded in his knees.Police described the mens injuries as significant, and both remained hospitalized Monday in stable condition.Grote said his grandson was in a lot of pain. On the night of the bombing, one of the vic-tims was riding a bike in the street and the other was on a sidewalk when they crossed a tripwire that he said knocked them both off their feet.ŽIt was so dark they couldnt tell, and they tripped,Ž he said. They didnt see it. It was a wire. And it blew up.ŽGrote said his son, who lives about 100 yards (90 meters) from the blast, heard the explosion and raced out-side to find both of the young men bleeding profusely.The presence of a tripwire was a departure from the first three bombings, which involved parcels left on door-steps that detonated when moved or opened.The tripwire heightened fears around Austin, a town famous for its cool, hipster attitude.Its creepy,Ž said Erin Mays, 33. Im not a scared person, but this feels very next-door-neighbor kind of stuff.ŽPolice repeated prior warnings about not touch-ing unexpected packages and issued new ones to be wary of any stray object left in public, especially ones with protrud-ing wires.Were very concerned that with tripwires, a child could be walking down a sidewalk and hit something,Ž Christopher Combs, FBI agent in charge of the bureaus San Antonio division, said in an interview.Police originally pointed to possible hate crimes, but the victims have now been black, Hispanic and white and from different parts of the city.Local and state officers and hundreds of federal agents are investigating. The reward for information lead-ing to an arrest has climbed to $115,000.We are clearly dealing with what we believe to be a serial bomber at this point,Ž Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said, citing similarities among the four bombs. He would not elaborate, though, saying he did not want to undermine the investigation.While the first three bombings all occurred east of Interstate 35, a section of town that tends to be more heavily minority and less affluent, Sundays was west of the highway. The differences in location, the lack of a motive and other unknowns make it harder to draw conclusions about any possible pattern.Thad Holt, 76, said he is now watching his steps as he makes his way through a sec-tion of town near the latest attack. I think everybody can now say, Oh, thats like my neighborhood,Ž he said.The latest bomb was anchored to a metal yard sign near the head of a hiking trail, Milanowski said.It was a thin wire or filament, kind of like fishing line,Ž he said. It would have been very difficult for someone to see.ŽAuthorities have checked more than 500 leads, Milanowski said. Police asked anyone with surveillance cameras at home to come for-ward with the footage on the chance it captured suspicious vehicles or people.Package bomb explodes in Texas, this time at shipping centerA police of“ cer stops a vehicle at a check point in front of a FedEx distribution center where a package exploded, Tuesday, March 20 in Schertz, Texas.

[KEITH SRAKOCIC/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Aaron BeardThe Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. „ After little went according to plan in the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament, the bracket has a wildly differ-ent look for the Sweet 16 than many expected.Out: Two 1-seeds (Vir-ginia and Xavier) and a pair of 2-seeds (North Carolina and Cincinnati).In: Two No. 11 seeds (Syra-cuse and Loyola-Chicago).There are only seven of the top 16 seeds still alive for the regional roundsThe Cavaliers historic loss to 16-seed UMBC took out the top overall seed and thrust Vil-lanova into the role of favorite, while preseason No. 1 Duke was dominant in its two tournament wins.Despite all the bracket turmoil, the power conferences managed to get 12 teams into the Sweet 16, with four coming from both the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big 12. Heres a look at the updated Final Four paths for the top remaining seeds: EastThis is the region that came closest to following the script.Four of the top five seeds survived: No. 1 Villanova, No. 2 Purdue, No. 3 Texas Tech and No. 5 West Virginia. And the Wildcats (32-4) will have the shortest travel (about 315 miles) by heading to Boston as they pursue a second national title in three seasons.My good vibes are coming from how this teams playing, how unselfishly they play,Ž Villanova coach Jay Wright said after Saturdays win against Alabama .Honestly, we dont care where we play.

Brandpoint By Laura FirsztMore Content Now Homeowners associations can be a controversial topic. It seems their members either love em or hate em, depending on who you ask. But are these minigovernments really 100 percent good or bad? Lets take an in-depth look at what HOAs are all about. What is a homeowners association? A homeowners associationŽ is the managing body of a housing subdivision or planned community, established by the property developer. Usually a non-profit corporation, the HOA board makes rules known as covenants, conditions and restrictions, which are implemented by either volunteers or a hired management company. To fund services like garbage pickup and landscaping of common areas, a homeowners association charges mandatory fees. Homeowners association prosAppearance. A homeowners association ensures an agreeable, uniform appearance for the community as a whole, regulating matters such as house paint colors, additions, and general upkeep. This tends to protect property values. Services. The homeowners association fees often include convenient maintenance services such as pest control, garbage pickup, snow removal, and sometimes even lawn care and in-ground sprinkler systems. Common areas. Often an HOA maintains common areas for the enjoyment of all residents … for example a swimming pool, private park, barbecue area, tennis court, golf course, clubhouse and/or rec room. Security. An association frequently provides homeowner security in the form of a gated community or an organized neighborhood watch. Community. The board mediates disputes among residents and ensures quiet in the complex. People active in their HOA usually claim its a good way to get to know the neighbors and build a sense of community.Homeowners association consFees. HOA fees typically run about $200-300 monthly for a single-family home (although they vary widely). This can make a big difference to your homeownership budget ƒ which lenders take into account when assessing mortgage applications. Assessments. As a rule, most homeowners associations are underfunded and raise money for large expenses via special assessments. Assessments are adopted by majority rule; those who vote against them still have to pay, to the tune of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of dollars on top of the standard fees. Mandatory repairs. Often if theres the slightest need for exterior repair to your home, the HOA allows no grace period; they pursue you with written warnings and eventually “ nes, until the repair is made. Also, an association may have a list of professional contractors you must use. Heaven help you if you pick someone not board-approved. Limits on home improvement. In contrast to the previous point, you may actually want to update your houses exterior appearance -for example, by hiring a contractor to build a deck. In this case, the association may drag its feet in approving your plans ƒ or veto them altogether. Excessive power. Many owners feel HOAs hold too much power, dictating the allowable number of residents (humans and pets), type of fencing, and even the length of your grass ƒ to name just a few examples. FRIGHTENING FACT: If someone gets behind with the fees, the association might even have the power to foreclose on their home.When youre house huntingCompare HOA fees and amenities of homes on your shortlist. What would you be likely to use and what do you consider a waste of money? If you dont plan to stay in a home long term, take into account how those fees and amenities will affect resale. Inspect not just the home for sale, but common areas, as well. Make sure theyre nicelooking and well kept; after all, youll be paying for them. Consider location.

What is the current amount and what services does it cover? How much are fees likely to increase, based on historical precedent and the current reserve fund? Check policy regarding rentals. Are you looking for an investment? Oftentimes, a homeowners association reserves the right to vet prospective tenants. Some may impose a quota on the number of rentals allowed. Read the fine print before buying a house under an HOA. Learn the rules and how they can be changed, as well as when HOA meetings are held. Investigate penalties for noncompliance and foreclosure for non-payment of fees. This info is available from the homeowners association itself, your real estate broker, or the county clerks of“ ce. Go through board meeting minutes, too. Pay attention to the tone of the proceedings. See whether the HOA is in sound “ nancial shape and if it has ever sued a member. Money trouble and lawsuits are not only messy and unpleasant, they can also affect your loan application and your homes value. Verify your dream homes compliance.

** B2 Wednesday, March 21, 2018 | Washington County News By Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Facebook plunged to its worst loss in four years Monday and led a rout in technology companies. The social media companys stock fell fol-lowing reports that a data mining firm working for the Trump campaign improperly obtained data on 50 million Facebook users.The drop in Facebook stock came after the New York Times and the Guardian reported that the firm, Cambridge Analytica, was able to tap the profiles of more than 50 million Facebook users without their permission. Legislators in the U.S. and Europe criticized Facebook and said they want more information about what happened. Investors wondered if companies like Facebook and Alphabet will face tighter regulation as a result.Daniel Ives, chief strat-egy officer and head of technology research for GBH Insights, said Face-book is in a crisis, and it will have to work hard to reassure users, investors and governments.This is a defining moment for them,Ž he said. It either becomes a blip on the radar and it helps the platform mature... or it becomes the start of something broader.ŽElsewhere, the British pound rose and European stocks slumped after Britain and the European Union said they are getting closer to a deal that will complete Britains departure from the EU in March 2019.The S&P 500 index sank 39.09 points, or 1.4 percent, to 2,712.92. The benchmark index took its biggest loss since Feb. 8, when it tumbled almost 4 percent as investors wor-ried that rising inflation would slow the progress of the market and the U.S. economy.The Dow Jones industrial average fell 335.60 points, or 1.3 percent, to 24,610.91. During the day it fell as much as 493 points. The Nasdaq composite gave up 137.74 points, or 1.8 percent, to 7,344.24. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks declined 15.49 points, or 1 percent, to 1,570.56. Facebook drags tech down as stocks dip The U.S. Capitol is shown in the early morning Dec. 22 in Washington. [J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Andrew TaylorThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Capitol Hill Democrats have rejected a White House bid to extend protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants in exchange for $25 billion in funding for President Donald Trumps longsought border wall as Washington talks on a $1.3 trillion catchall spending bill hit a criti-cal stage on Monday.Disputes remain over immigration enforcement and a smaller infusion of wall funding, as well as a major rail project that pits Trump against his most powerful Democratic adversary, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.Mondays developments were described by congressional aides in both parties who spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks remain secretive.All sides pressed toward an agreement by Monday night, though aides said it appeared more likely that the measure would be unveiled Tuesday for a House vote Thursday. House and Senate action is needed by midnight Friday to avert another government shutdown.The bipartisan measure is loaded with political and policy vic-tories for both parties. Republicans and Trump are winning a longsought budget increase for the Pentagon, while Democrats obtain fund-ing for infrastructure, the opioid crisis and a wide swath of domestic programs.The bill would imple-ment last months budget agreement, providing 10 percent increases for the Pentagon and domestic agencies. Coupled with last years tax cuts, it heralds the return of trillion-dollar budget deficits as soon as the budget year starting in October.While most of the funding issues in the enormous measure have been sorted out, fights involving a number of policy ridersŽ „ so named because they catch a ride on a difficult-to-stop spending bill „ continued into the weekend.As is typical, many or most of the policy riders were melting away.For instance, an effort to add a plan to revive federal subsidies to stabilize the individual health insurance market and help the poor cover out-of-pocket costs under President Barack Obamas health law appeared to be failing. A complicated dispute involving abortion was at fault.President Donald Trump told two Repub-lican senators on Saturday that he supports adding proposals to a huge spending bill that would provide billions in federal sub-sidies to insurers to help curb health care pre-mium increases.Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Susan Collins of Maine spoke to Trump for an hour on Saturday in a call initiated by the two lawmakers, the sources said. Alexander and Collins are among Republicans backing proposals to revive payments to insurers that Trump halted last fall that reimburse the carriers for reducing out-ofpocket costs for many low-earning custom-ers. Those reductions are required by the Obama health law, and insur-ers have made up for the lost federal payments by boosting premiums.They would also create a $30 billion, three-year reinsurance program that states could use to help insurers afford to cover their most seriously ill, expensive consumers.Both proposals are in trouble because Democrats oppose GOP provisions that would forbid the federal payments from being used to help pay for insurance policies that provide abortion.And Republicans appeared likely to fail in a bid to fix a glitch in the recent tax bill that subsidizes grain sales to cooperatives at the expense of for-profit grain companies, several aides said.Efforts to use the measure as a vehicle to extend protections for young immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival, or DACA, program appeared likely to fail, aides said. Trump killed the Obama-era program in September, but a court decision has essentially left it in place, for now. The White House had revived the idea in recent days „ offering on Sunday a 30-month extension of DACA pro-tections in exchange for $25 billion for Trumps border wall „ but Democrats demanded protections for a broader pool of immigrants than had signed up for DACA, a request denied by GOP negotiators.

Theres a reason for everything under the sun. As the world turns, turns, turns, there are lessons we learn, learn, learn. (Can you name the song that inspired this?) I have spent the last year learning to parent a prodigal, a kiddo who has stepped outside of our authority and is pursuing her own path. A prodigal has many characteristics: unteachable, deceitful, selfdestructive, disobedient, selfish, wasteful, jealous, angry. The list is long and while some of the adjectives describe my kiddo, most do not. It has easily been the largest challenge of my life. It caught us off guard, her path. We werent prepared for the idea that one of ours would rebuke us and every single thing we had taught our daughters. The first two weeks were a fog of panic and grief.

I began learning the hard way that I had made some serious miscalculations, and my kid wasnt the person I thought I had raised. Worse, I wasnt the parent I thought I was. From the time they were little, I worked so hard to make sure that my kiddos had qualities such as honor, trustworthiness, and kindness. Except in my push to make sure that they had the best childhood possible, Im afraid that I overparented my oldest. She dabbled in a lot of things. Gymnastics, scouts, art, but it was in karate class where she showed promise ... until it was sparring time. She talked a good game and could do all the moves, until there was an opponent in front of her. She wasnt aggressive in the least and, as both of her parents are aggressive by nature, I fretted over this. She would continue to grow and that passive nature grew with her. So I started watching her closely to make sure that when she needed a hand, I was there. My goal was to smooth the way for her. I hoped to see her mature and grow in confidence, yet she would continue to try new things and then move on to something else rather than commit and dedicate herself to it. And I continued to stand in the gap between her and anything that didnt go her way. Looking back, I was not doing her any favors. Since I couldnt get her to fight her own fights: the teacher that always called her by the wrong name ... even six months into the school year, the friend drama, the project that didnt come easy I was her fighter who would step in and help. I was laying the groundwork. The same cheerful, happy, loving kid was learning lessons I didnt mean to teach. So when she walked away, she left me standing there holding my heart completely confused and feeling lost. A split-second decision on her part moved our relationship from that of a mother and a daughter to a mother and a grown daughter. When she removed herself from my authority, I crumbled in the mist. At no point of motherhood was I prepared to let my daughter go „ without guidance, without support and, frankly, since she made that decision, without my input. And the mother in me, she wept. I lost some of my footing in my very identity as I was her mom and then suddenly, I wasnt. I was an outsider. It was a true test of being a child of Christ. In my drowning state, I reached for him and he didnt let me down. Between my cries and my prayer journal, he bore all the weight of the grief. I heard a sermon once that said, Ask God to heal your heart from a hurt instead of waiting on a person, sinful and human, ask God to fix your heart instead.Ž And I balked at first, as my daughter may never heal that hurt but could I just hand it over to God? God can heal anything, and almost a year later, I can smile when I think of of my prodigal. I can text and call her without pain and judgment. I can love her in the moment and let go of the past. At one point, we are no longer responsible for the actions of others. Thank you, Lord. PASTFrom Page B4ALGEBRA I TEAM (not in order) First, Roulhac Middle.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, March 21, 2018 B7 HEALTHBy JoAnne Viviano More Content NowDavid Evans moved slowly and deliberately down a hallway at the OhioHealth Rehabilitation Hospital, getting help not just from physical therapists but also from a new robotic device designed to give him the support and assistance needed to take step after step after step. The February session marked just the second time Evans had walked since the November morning he awoke unable to move his legs. But the possibility that he might never again walk on his own hadnt even crossed his mind. They asked me what my goal was when I left here, and I said to regain the use of my legs. So its gonna happen,Ž Evans said as he sat in a wheelchair after the exoskeleton was removed. This machine has helped me.Ž Evans had taken more than 300 steps with the help of the Ekso Bionics EksoGT, an intuitive, robotic exoskeleton that senses where users need assistance to move their legs. Therapists say the device will allow patients to improve more quickly after spinal cord injuries or stroke. It was great for me. It gave me a different sensation from what Ive been through thus far, and its given me the added confidence that I can get the strength back in my legs,Ž said Evans, a 60-year-old whose paralysis was caused by a benign mass on his spine. The device features leg braces and a thick back harness held on by a wide Velcro strap. Four motors „ two in the hips and two in the knees „ power the robot, and dozens of sensors determine each patients unique capabilities. It adapts to what the patients doing performance-wise, and it only provides the assistance where the patient needs it,Ž said Erin Rogers, a physical therapist who leads the EksoGT team at OhioHealth. Its amazing. It excites me every time.Ž It typically requires four health-care workers to support and move a patient regaining the ability to walk, Rogers said, and therapists physical fatigue would limit the amount of steps a patient could take. With the robot, just one or two therapists are needed to help a patient, allowing the patient to cover far more ground per session. The exoskeleton also more effectively coaches patients to walk with a normal pattern, preventing them from compensating for weaknesses and falling into bad habits, Evans said. A hand-held controller gives therapists feedback on how much work patients are doing on their own, with data collected by Ekso Bionics to help guide treatment plans. Over the past three years, theres been an explosion in the interest of exoskeletons, said Tom Looby, president and chief executive of the Richmond, Californiabased Ekso Bionics. He said the company is focused on getting the robots into rehabilitation clinics. So far, there are about 225 deployed across the United States and Europe. Once that is accomplished, the company hopes to deploy robots of varying support levels into homes and the community. That would involve making devices that are safer to use on varied walking surfaces, without a therapists help, and making them more affordable. The current list price of the EksoGT is about $160,000. Affording more people the ability to walk reduces the number of patients who must return to clinics and avoids complications of prolonged wheelchair use, such as bowel and bladder problems, pressure sores, a loss of bone density and depression, Looby said. The robot also allows patients to get out of bed sooner and more safely and increases their endurance, distance covered and motor function. Walking is very important,Ž he said. We take it for granted, but it really is the core for how patients with spinal cord injuries and stroke improve.Ž Some patients struggle with anxiety over being strapped into the device or needing a robot to be able to walk, Rogers said. And its use is limited to patients who can communicate with therapists. But more often than not, patients remark on how the exoskeleton allows them to do so much more than traditional therapy and gives them a sense of normalcy, Rogers said. It can be motivational,Ž she said. When we put them in Ekso, they all of a sudden have a little more hope.ŽHigh-tech humansRobotic exoskeleton helps patients learn to walk againPatient David Evans with therapy manager Erin Rogers, right, and physical therapist Megan Strasser as he undergoes a rehabilitation session using a robotic exoskeleton at Ohio Rehabilitation Hospital in Columbus. Dave had a tumor removed from his spine, and the exoskeleton is helping in his effort to walk again. [ERIC ALBRECHT/ DISPATCH]
