Alford requested the City reduce the rental fee by 20 percent. The City rents a warehouse, located at 1076 Brickyard Road in the Tommy R. McDonald Sr. Industrial Park, to the company.The rent, according to the 5-year lease which ends in March 2020, was $10,333 monthly. It is the only building the City leases, officials said.Officials estimate the busi-ness employs more than 400 people."If WestPoint leaves, we're going to have a big empty building out there," said City Administrator Dan Miner. He noted the local investment in jobs and other impacts that would be effectedif the com-panywere shutdown locally."It's nothing for (corporate WestPoint) to cut it, and we don't want to see that," he said, referring to closing local operations."That would be a domino effect if all those jobs were gone because those people would have to go somewhere," Mayor John Sasser added.According to the letter, the company's budget was slashed by more than 18 percent. The cuts, coupled with trying to stay competitive in the global market,was the drive behind the lease reduction request. Also, Alford noted WestPoint rented at 44 cents per square foot at a Marianna warehouse, whereas Chipleycharges $2.07 per square foot."We are kindly asking for the reduction to keep jobs in Washington County," Alford wrote.City council members did not flinch at opening the option to reduce the lease. They passed the vote for the reduction unanimously and with comments and questions of support."There are international pressures that are working on their profit margin," Sasser said.In other business, the council approved an impact fee waiver request for Habitat Humanity and approved utility Ordinance No. 950, which integrates fees across all utilities and slightly increases some fees relating to gas.Chipley City Council will meet for a workshop on May 3 and for a regular meeting on May 8 at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 1442 Jackson Ave.Council reduces lease, retains jobs Washington County News reader Cheryl McCall captures this copper sunrise over Blue Lake in Chipley.

A state legislator had funded a special appropriation to build it. However, the county has been operat-ing the library sinceitwas not financially sound for the City to run it, officials said."The county already has the county library facility in place, so, basically, this is allowing us to transfer it so that legally we can apply for things grants and approve our library services and approve the building," Rountree said at the meeting.If, for any reason, the county cannot maintain it, the property would be automatically transferred back to the City, Mayor Tina Sloan said after the meeting.

LIBRARYFrom Page A1 gun-show Âloophole,ÂŽ that imposes a three-day waiting period and back-ground checks for the private sales of weapons.While the 2011 law bans local gun ordinances that go beyond state statutes, a 1998 constitutional amendment allows coun-ties --but not cities --to impose up to five-day waiting periods and background checks on gun sales.Seven counties --Broward, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Sarasota and Volusia --already have ordinances requiring background checks and waiting periods for private gun sales. But the Second Amendment group Florida Carry has pledged to sue Leon County for including provisions that it says go beyond what the Consti-tution allows.Meanwhile, three cities and a number of elected officials in Broward County this week filed a lawsuit challenging the 2011 law, arguing it hamstrings politicians in communities surrounding Parkland from being able to pass bans on detachable high-capacity magazines.Coral Springs, Pembroke Pines, Coconut Creek and two officials from the cities allege in the lawsuit that provisions in the 2011 law violate the federal and state constitutions.The plaintiffs believe a local ban on large-capac-ity magazines, used in a number of mass shootings across the country, would not violate the preemption law because the detachable devices are Âoptional firearm accessories.ÂŽLawyers for the cities argued the gun restrictions Âwill make their local communities safer --and might prevent or mitigate a future school shooting --without infringing on the right to keep and bear arms or violating the Firearms Preemption Law.ÂŽBut the local officials are worried that enacting such a prohibition could make them vulnerable to hefty penalties under the preemption law. Cities face the risk of lawsuits and potential damages of up to $100,000 and unlimited attorneysÂ fees in each lawsuit. Public officials face removal from office and $5,000 fines.

BareÂ“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett For decades, politicians across the country have blissfully adopted an ÂIf we ignore it, maybe itÂll go awayÂŽ approach to the public-sector pension crisis. But itÂs not going away. The Pew Charitable Trusts this week released its latest report on the fiscal health of government pensions. The news remains grim Â„ and continues to get worse. ÂMany state retirement systems are on an unsustainable course, coming up short on their investment targets and having failed to set aside enough money to fund the pension promises made to public employees,ÂŽ the study concludes. ÂEven as contributions from taxpayers over the past decade doubled as a share of state revenue, the total still fell short of what is needed to improve the funding situation.ÂŽ Among the findings for the year 2016: Â€ States had a cumulative deficit of $1.4 trillion, up a whopping 27 percent from 2015. The trend has been ever upward since 2000. Â€ The average pension system assumes an annual return on investment of 7.5 percent, a number that allows many states to disguise funding shortfalls by projecting overly optimistic gains. The systemwide average return in 2016 was 1 percent. Â€ States are now taking on higher levels of investment risk in order to try to minimize shortfalls, an approach that could have major long-term consequences in the face of market volatility. Â€ Only four states Â„ New York, Tennessee, South Dakota and Wisconsin Â„ had at least 90 percent of the assets needed to pay promised benefits.Florida was at 79 percent. The crisis is directly tied to political decisions dating back decades to curry favor with government unions by increasing retirement payouts and benefits. In return, those same labor organizations donate generously to elected officials Â„ largely Democrats Â„ who support sweetheart pension deals. Left staring agape at the check are the taxpayers, most of whom have no access to the type of retirement benefits they are forced to fund for government workers. Democrats may want to rethink this dynamic. While some states and municipalities may have years until they face a day of reckoning, others are teetering at the edge of the abyss thanks to generous pension payouts. Short of bankruptcy, officials will have to make difficult decisions that could be tough to explain to voters. ÂAs states try to prop up their pension funds,ÂŽ The Associated Press reported Thursday, Âit means less money is available for core government services such as education, public safety and parks.ÂŽ And absent reform, the possibility increases that current public employees wonÂt see the benefits theyÂve been promised. The marketÂs strong performance in 2017 might act as a tourniquet on this spurting wound. But this issue wonÂt just Âgo away." This editorial first appeared in the Las Vegas Journal Review, a sister paper with GateHouse Media. ÂUnsustainableÂ course for public pensions ANOTHER VIEW This year you may have seen people, off and on, walking with large packs on State Road 20 or around the area and surrounding counties. Don't be quick to jump to a conclusion though! These people may be long distance hikers on the Florida National Scenic Trail. The trial crosses this county and many of the surrounding counties on its 1,300 mile journey from Big Cypress to Ft. Pickens. People from all over the country and the world travel to walk every mileincluding the roads. Hikers who attempt the entire trail are called 'thru' hikers. Their goal is to hike the entire state, and that means passing through many different Florida communities and walking along both busy and rural roads to get from one national or state park to another. When you see these hikers, please be kind. They bring tourism to our otherwise unknown areas. They come from all walks of lifefrom right out of high school to retirees, and just want to experience Florida's scenic places. To do so, they must come into towns to purchase food for the next section of their journey Â„ and hopefully grab a shower and a night outside of their tent! The site (and smell) of these hikers can be off-putting at times. They can spend weeks without being close enough to a facility to shower or do their laundry. There is not much a long distance hiker can do in this instance. Before town many try to clean up as best they can to be as inconspicuous as possible. Mostly you will see them in February and March, but there are still a few hiking the trail so if you run in to a thru hiker, stop to chat. Many have interesting stories to tell and are just trying to get into your local town, eat some food, and maybe clean up a bit before heading back out on their epic journey! You can get more information about the Florida Trail at www.floridatrail. org, including fun activities the local chapter in the area does, such as group hikes.Â„Amanda Kincaid, Northwest Florida PanhandleAnother look at walkers on S.R. 20From the moment Mark Zuckerberg began to read his opening statement, you knew he wasn't going to change Facebook. Clueless politicians made it clear they didn't understand Facebook, so members of Congress were unable to drill down into details of Facebook's business model and just how much of your personal information is owned by thousands of companies. Perplexed members of Congress suggesting Facebook change its business model to "fee-based" don't understand the advertising business and how many hundreds of millions of dollars and users they would lose. Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana was most articulate when he told Zuckerberg his company's user agreement "sucks" and if he doesn't change it, Congress will. Which would be good news for Facebook. If Congress creates new laws that make it hard to compete in this industry, it will certainly make it harder and more expensive for competition to enter the arena, as Facebook already has the lawyers and billions of dollars to compete. Does this mean Congress should do nothing? Of course not. The European Union has the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a law that requires that users must be able to exercise certain new rights, including: 1) the right to view all data that a company holds about them, 2) the right to demand that the company restrict the usage of or delete that data. Companies that don't comply with the EU's rules face a hefty fine either 4 percent of an entity's annual total revenue or 20 million Euros, whichever is greater. Zuckerberg knows this is a threat to his business, so he offered to "extend" the GDPR to the U.S. However, when questioned about the extent to which Facebook would "voluntarily" extend these protections, he was vague... very vague. IT security expert Josh Marpet of Redlion. io puts it this way: "Every time you have an interaction with someone or something, there is transfer. If your car hits another car, there is paint transferred from one car to the other. If your aunt hits your other aunt, there's probably some family gossip which just transferred! And if you interact with a website, an app, or a technological service of any kind, there is informational transfer." So what about all those free apps? Whatsapp? Facebook? WeChat? Snapchat? Linkedin? How do they make money? You. They track where you go, who you talk to, what you click on, what you don't click on, what phone calls you make, and more., The better their demographic knowledge of you, the better to personalize ads sent to you. They can feed you news and stories to make your blood boil, or your heart sing. If you want to protect your data, the obvious think to do would be to quit Facebook. But if you want to continue to see your friends and family and they're all on Facebook, here are some rules to live by if you want to protect your data: Don't post anything "public." Don't use any Facebook apps, like Mafia Wars. Don't log onto everything under the sun using Facebook, because then they're gathering more data about you. Use the Facebook privacy settings! It's well past time to push Facebook to have a paid version, with no ads and no data gathering. That way, users can once again be Facebook's customer, not its product. Unfortunately, Zuckerberg entered the Senate Tuesday hearing like a mouse and left Congress on Wednesday like a lion. That should concern you.Crackdown on Facebook Would Be Good... For FacebookLETTER TO THE EDITOR Rick Jensen

** A6 Wednesday, April 18, 2018 | Washington County News LOCAL & STATECHIPLEY Two people were recently arrested for possession of narcotics without prescriptions.Just after midnight, Thursday, a deputy stopped a vehicle at the intersection of Orange Hill Road and Stewart Road. During the stop, K9 Jet alerted to the presence of illegal narcotics at the passenger side door of the vehicle, according to a Washington County Sher-iff's Office news release.The passenger, identified as 48-year-old Stephen Christopher Higbee, of Wausau, was asked to place a leash on his dog and step out of the vehicle, the report stated.As Higbee began to stall and avoided following commands to exit the vehicle, the deputy noticed a large knife positioned between his legs. Higbee was given instructions to exit the vehicle without touching the knife. Before exiting the vehicle, Higbee took placedthe knifeon the dash.Once outside of the vehicle, during the initial pat-down search, Higbee pushed away from the deputy, trying to regain entry into the vehicle, the release stated. As Higbee was being removed from the vehicle, the dog attempted to attack the deputy. Higbee was then placed in hand-cuffs and a search revealed approximately five grams of methamphetamine and several prescription pills in his front pants pocket.The remainding occu-pants were removed from the vehicle and a search led to the discovery of four glass pipes in the area that Higbee was sitting, according to the release.Higbee was arrested and transported to the Washington County Jail where he was booked on the charges of resisting an officer without violence, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, and possession of drug paraphernalia.A second passenger, Rosanna Elisha Richards, 31, of Cottondale, was found to be in possession of three different types of prescription medications and booked into the Washington County Jail on three counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, according to the Washington County SheriffÂs Office. Richards was also booked on an outstanding Washington County failure to appear warrant for driving with a suspended license and a Holmes County warrant for possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, according to the report.K9 alert leads to illegal narcotics arrestsHigbee Richards The cities are asking a judge to declare the pro-visions Âunconstitutional, unlawful and invalidÂŽ and are seeking an injunction preventing enforcement of the penalties.ÂBy threatening to punish local officials and their cities for quintessen-tially legislative acts like voting in favor of an ordinance, the state of Florida has improperly interfered with local democracy, establishing a system in which local officialsÂ legislative decisions are necessarily restrained by concerns about individual and municipal legal and financial liability instead of the safety and well-being of their constituents and communities,ÂŽ lawyers for the plaintiffs argued in the 31-page complaint filed in Broward County circuit court.Coral Springs Commissioner Dan Daley, a Marjory Stoneman Doug-las High alum who wants to ban large-capacity magazines in his city and is a plaintiff in the lawsuit, called the Âheavy handedÂŽ 2011 law one of Âthe most egregiousÂŽ in the country.ÂThe current law has had a chilling effect on local leaders across this state who, because of the penalties, are hardpressed to recommend even the most reasonable of gun reform measures in their own communities. The city of Coral Springs, and municipalities across this great state, have had enough and are standing up against this draconian law,ÂŽ Daley said in a statement.The lawsuit mirrors a broader challenge to the statute filed by 10 cities earlier this month in Leon County circuit court. Two cities, including Tallahas-see, have since joined the suit, and Leon County also is considering joining the case.The lawsuit contends the 2011 law, in part, vio-lates constitutional limits on gubernatorial authority with respect to municipal officers, conflicts with the right of elected officials to legislative immunity and is Âoverbroad, in violation of local officialsÂ free speech rights.ÂŽThe legal challenges, and Leon CountyÂs ordinance, are part of a nationwide response to the horrific ValentineÂs Day shooting, which spawned demands for stricter gun measures, such as a ban on assault-style weapons.ÂWe expect cities and local officials in Florida and other states will con-tinue to push back against limits on their ability to pass common-sense gun safety laws and protect their communities,ÂŽ Eric Tirschwell, director of litigation at Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, told The News Service of Florida. Tirschwell is one of the lawyers represent-ing the plaintiffs in the Broward County lawsuit.But gun-rights groups maintain that the pre-emption law keeps Florida from having a patchwork of regulations that could put gun owners at risk as they travel in the state.Marion Hammer, the National Rifle AssociationÂs Florida lobbyist and a former president of the national organization, pointed the finger at a series of missteps by government officials who repeatedly ignored warn-ing signs that 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz posed a threat to the community before Cruz used a semiautomatic rifle to shoot the students and faculty members in Parkland.ÂParkland had nothing to do with preemption. Parkland had to do with government officials fail-ing to do their job, failing to deal effectively with a person with serious mental illness who clearly was a danger to himself or others,ÂŽ she said in a recent telephone interview. ÂAllowing local govern-ments to willy-nilly adopt gun control to pretend theyÂre doing something to cover their own deficien-cies is ludicrous.ÂŽThe NRA, meanwhile, is challenging a new school-safety law passed last month in response to the Parkland massacre. The law, among other things, raised the minimum age from 18 to 21 and imposed a three-day waiting period for the sale of rifles and other long guns, such as the weapon Cruz legally purchased and used at his former school.The age and waitingperiod requirements already apply to buying handguns, but the NRA contends that raising the age to 21 for purchasing long guns is unconstitutional.Sen. Bill Galvano, a Bradenton Republican who was instrumental in crafting the new law and who is slated to take over as Senate president after the November elections, told the News Service he doesnÂt anticipate any changes to the 2011 pre-emption law coming from the Legislature.ÂI have no indication that weÂre going to go back and revisit simply because the lawsuits have been filed,ÂŽ Galvano, a lawyer, said.FloridaÂs Constitution Âis more specific regarding the ability to regulate or curtail the Second Amend-ment rights that flow from the federal Constitution,ÂŽ he said.When asked what he would say to local officials who complain that the preemption law prohibits them from doing what their constituents want, Galvano pointed to the state law passed in March.ÂThatÂs why we responded in such a comprehensive manner. Great time and diligence was taken in determining where we can make reasonable changes to gun-safety regulation without opening us up for a lawsuit,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs a balance, too. You still have the NRA suing on the other side.ÂŽ GUN LAWFrom Page A2Just after midnight, Thursday, a deputy stopped a vehicle at the intersection of Orange Hill Road and Stewart Road.

There will need to be infrastructure put into place to attract businesses which Wausau cannot do until Florida Department of Transportation completes the four laning of Highway 77.

The Associated PressBERLINMOSCOWBy Catherine Lucey and Eric TuckerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ In his scathing appraisal of the man who fired him as FBI chief, James Comey cited Âsome evidence of obstruction of justiceÂŽ in President Donald TrumpÂs actions and speculated that Russians might have dirt on the president. Trump struck back, brand-ing Comey a criminal.Their war of words escalated Monday after Comey, in an ABC interview broad-cast the night before, labelled Trump Âmorally unfitÂŽ for office. Trump tweeted that Comey drafted an exoneration of Hillary Clinton long before he talked to her as part of an investigation into her email practices. He labelled Comey ÂdisgruntledÂŽ and accused him and allies of having Âcommit-ted many crimes.ÂŽ For his part, Comey has said that nine or 10 months into the Clinton probe, he had a Âclear pictureÂŽ where it was going and itÂs common to draft statements before an investigation is complete.ComeyÂs remarks, coupled with the release of his forthcoming book, offer his version of events surrounding his firing and the investigations into Russian election meddling and Clin-tonÂs email practices. Several of the episodes he describes in detail, including a private conversation about former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, are central to special counsel Robert MuellerÂs investigation and his recollections are presumably valuable for pros-ecutors examining whether the presidentÂs actions con-stitute obstruction of justice.The ex-FBI director, who until his firing in May led an investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, acknowledged that it was ÂstunningÂŽ to think that Russia could have damaging information about a U.S. president. But he said that in TrumpÂs case, he could not discount the possibility that the president had been compromised.ÂThese are more words I never thought IÂd utter about a president of the United States, but itÂs possible,ÂŽ Comey told ABC NewsÂ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. He also acknowledged he had no proof that Russia has dirt on Trump: ÂI think itÂs possible. I donÂt know.ÂŽHe also answered ÂpossiblyÂŽ when asked if the president was attempting to obstruct justice when he cleared the Oval Office of other officials in February 2017 before encouraging him to close the investigation into Flynn, who by that point was suspected of lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts. The retired general pleaded guilty in December and is now cooperating with MuellerÂs investigation.Comey also said he believed Trump treated women like Âpieces of meat.ÂŽÂA person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like theyÂre pieces of meat, who lies con-stantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it Â„ that per-sonÂs not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds,ÂŽ Comey said.Trump on Sunday rejected ComeyÂs assertion that Trump had sought his loyalty at a January 2017 dinner, saying ÂI hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies.ÂŽ He also suggested Comey should be imprisoned, tweet-ing, Âhow come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail).ÂŽ There is no indication Comey is under investigation for doing either.The president began assail-ing Comey even before the interview came out.He seized on an excerpt shown Saturday in which Comey said his belief that Clinton would beat Trump in the 2016 presidential elec-tion was probably a factor in his decision to disclose the investigation into her emails. Comey, Trump tweeted, Âwas making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!ÂŽThat argument was startling given that ComeyÂs handling of the email investi-gation, including his disclosure shortly before the election that the FBI had reopened its probe, enraged Democrats. After ClintonÂs loss, many Democrats blamed Comey, and Clinton herself has said it hurt her election prospects.Comey again defended his actions, telling ABC that he made what he thought was the best decision at the time. Comey said he did not remem-ber Âconsciously thinkingÂŽ about the election results as he decided to disclose that the FBI had reopened its investigation into candidate ClintonÂs email use. But, he acknowledged, ÂI was oper-ating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so IÂm sure that it was a factor.ÂŽComey: Russians may have info on TrumpA copy of former FBI Director James ComeyÂs new book, ÂA Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,ÂŽ is on display Friday in New York.

** A10 Wednesday, April 18, 2018 | Washington County News SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFPITTSBURGHLongtime Steelers LB Harrison retires againJames Harrison is taking another shot at retirement, and this time itÂs likely to stick for the longtime Pitts-burgh Steelers linebacker.The five-time Pro Bowler, two-time All Pro and 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year announced on Instagram early Monday he is stepping away from the game following a 15-year career that saw him go from undrafted free agent to one of the most feared players in the league.Harrison, 39, posted a collage of pictures of his two sons and noted heÂs Âmissed way too much for way too long ... and IÂm done.ÂŽ Harrison played nearly his entire career with the Steelers, collecting 80.5 of his 84.5 career sacks while wearing black and gold, a franchise record. He spent the 2013 season in Cincinnati and signed with New England late last season, appearing in all three playoff games for the Patriots, including their Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia.This is the second time Harrison has called it quits. He retired briefly in September 2014 only to be lured back to the Steelers. He remained productive into his late 30s, register-ing at least five sacks from 2014-16. PHILADELPHIA76ersÂ leading scorer, Hall of Famer Greer diesHal Greer, a Hall of Fame guard and the Philadelphia 76ersÂ career leading scorer, has died.The Sixers said Greer died Saturday night in Ari-zona after a brief illness. He was 81.Greer spent 15 seasons with the Syracuse Nation-als and Philadelphia 76ers and finished his career with a record 21,586 points. HeÂs also the 76ersÂ career leader in field goals, field goals attempted, games and minutes played.Greer was the first player to have his number retired (15) by the 76ers in 1976. Greer also became the first player to be honored with a sculpture on 76ers Legends Walk at the team training complex in 2017.ENGLEWOOD, COLO.Broncos release running back C.J. AndersonC.J. Anderson is leaving Denver with a million memories, a Super Bowl ring and no hard feelings.ÂItÂs business, I understand it,ÂŽ Anderson told The Associated Press on Monday after he was released by the Denver Broncos. ÂIÂve been here five years and it came to an end. So, IÂm excited for the next opportunity.ÂŽWhere that is, ÂI donÂt know,ÂŽ Anderson said. ÂI have no clue at all.ÂŽPossible landing spots include Miami, where Dol-phins coach Adam Gase offered him a four-year, $18 million deal in 2016 that Denver matched, and New England, where Patriots coach Bill Belichick is also a big fan. By Barry WilnerThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ The NFL for the first time is prohibiting certain hel-mets from being worn by players.In notifying the 32 teams Monday, the league has sought to have players stop using 10 helmet varieties. Some, particularly those manufactured by Rawl-ings, no longer are being made and donÂt have support from the com-pany. Others were found to be inferior to many of the 34 helmets the NFL and the playersÂ union examined.Previously, NFL players could choose any helmet as long as it passed certification standards. Six of the substandard helmets are prohibited immediately, while the other four may be worn by players who used them in 2017 but not by new players.The 10 helmets are RawlingsÂ Impulse and Impulse+, Quantum and Tachyon; SG Varsity and SG 2.0; Schutt Vengeance Z10 (model 204100), Air XP (model 789002) and Air XP Pro (model 789102); and Riddell VSR-4 (model R41133). About 200 players used those hel-mets last season.ÂOver the last few years weÂve seen some dynamic changes in the helmet industry, both from new innovators as well as new helmets and models from incumbent companies,ÂŽ said Jeff Miller, the NFLÂs senior vice president of health and safety policy.ÂThere are a number of helmets for players to move to, from those that rank poorly in perform-ing to the ones in the higher ranking.ÂThe purpose of the continuation to rank helmets and the joint decision with the playersÂ association to prohibit is to increase that movement into better performing hel-mets. We are encouraged this is an important step for better player safety.ÂŽA survey of players revealed at least 98 per-cent used one or more of the 34 helmet models tested. Data also showed that concussions were up in the NFL in 2017 to 291.Laboratory testing showed that the VICIS Zero 1 models of 2017 and 2018 rate best for player safety. A chart specifying top-to-bottom rankings for the 34 helmets is posted at every teamÂs training facility.ÂWeÂve begun to see that over the last couple of years players moving from helmets that rank in the poorly performing areas to those that are ranging closer to the top-performing hel-mets,ÂŽ Miller said.The 2018 Zero1 was the only new helmet model tested this year.NFL to prohibit use of certain helmets Princeton TigersÂ Jake Boone, left, looks over the Â“ eld before their April 5 game against the Monmouth Hawks in Princeton, N.J.. Boone is trying to put himself in position to make his the Â“ rst four-generation major league family. [SETH WENIG/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Ronald BlumThe Associated PressPRINCETON, N.J. Â„ Jake Boone takes grounders on a chilly, wind-swept diamond, a month into his freshman season at Princeton Uni-versity, hoping to follow Ray, Bob, Bret & Aaron and make his the first four-generation family of major leaguers.ÂI know itÂs long and hard,ÂŽ the 19-yearold says. ÂThe minor leagues I know is just a grind Â„ itÂs a grind just getting there. YouÂre just lucky to have an opportunity to try to make it, so I hope that I get that opportunity.ÂŽHis family has been, well, a boon to baseball.JakeÂs dad, Bret, was a three-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove second baseman in a big league career from 1992-05. Uncle Aaron is the first-year manager of the Yankees, made one All-Star appear-ance while playing from 1997-2009 and hit the unceasingly replayed home run that won the 2003 AL pennant for New York. Grandpa Bob was a four-time All-Star catcher from 1972-90, then managed Kansas City from 1995-97 and Cincinnati from 2001-03. JakeÂs great grandfather Ray was a two-time All-Star infielder from 1948-60.The family has high hopes of Jake continu-ing the traditionÂHe can really play the middle infield, which helps,ÂŽ Aaron says. ÂYou never know, if he continues to develop.ÂŽBob maintains it is too soon to project whether Jake will get a chance to boost the already impressive family statistics: 6,569 games, 5,890 hits and 634 home runs.ÂHe can really field. HeÂs going to be a talented kid,ÂŽ Bob says. ÂReal shot? I canÂt say real shot. But a shot, though.ÂŽPrinceton has no names on its jerseys but JakeÂs background precedes his boyish face, darkened to a degree by the slight stubble that is de rigueur of a pros-pect. He has uncommon pedigree and prepara-tion, and like pebbles on an infield has soaked in years of baseball from just being around.He played at Torrey Pines High School in San Diego, where former big league pitcher Kirk McCaskill is head baseball coach. He was selected by Washington on the 38th round of last JuneÂs amateur draft; grandpa is a Nationals vice president and senior adviser to the general manager.PrincetonÂs coach is Scott Bradley, a big league catcher for nine seasons who has led the Tigers to seven Ivy League titles in 20 sea-sons so far and produced a half-dozen players who have appeared in big league games, including pitchers Chris Young and Ross Ohlendorf, and out-fielder Will Venable.ÂHeÂs very aware of the game and has those instincts. IÂm not going to take credit for teach-ing him that. YouÂre born with those,ÂŽ Bret says. ÂI remember when I was 18 years old, I was getting the same questions. And you get sick of them after a while because youÂre trying to kind of pave your own way.ÂŽThe House of Boone is to baseball what that Roosevelts, Kennedys and Bushes are to poli-tics. The Boones became the first three-genera-tion baseball family when Bret made his big league debut and have since been joined by the Bells, Colemans, Hairstons and Schofield/Werth lines Â„ plus the Runges, if umpires are included. Jake was 6 when his dad played his final big league game in 2005.ÂI can remember when we lived in Seattle. He was on the Mariners. We got to go to all the home games,ÂŽ Jake recalls. ÂI remember hanging out with the other playersÂ kids in the kid room, waiting for the game to end so we all could see our dads.ÂŽAt 5-10, 170 pounds, Jake still needs to grow into his body and get stronger. He is hitting .182 (10 for 55) with three RBIs and seven errors, playing second at shortstop on a team that is 8-16 overall but 5-4 in the Ivies. He is adjusting to college ball on a team in the Northeast that starts against tough opponents in the south and then plays home games in cold he never experienced in California.Jake was a three-sport athlete through elemen-tary school, dropped basketball in middle school and football in high school. He played club ball for the Rancho Santa Fe Titans from age 8 through his freshman year at Torrey Pines, then switched to the California Bears. He captained his high school team as a senior and hit .353.Princeton won him over at first sight when he visited in the summer of 2016.ÂYou know thereÂs so much history here, and youÂre in classrooms where some of the brightest minds honestly before me have sat and have taught,ÂŽ he says. ÂJust the idea that Einstein was a professor here for a little bit is just crazy to think about.ÂŽFirst semester classes included history of the Roman Empire, Span-ish 101, microeconomics and a required freshman writing seminar. This semesterÂs workload is calculus Â„ Âmy hardest classÂŽ Â„ Spanish 102, macroeconomics and history of the late antiquity.He is leaning toward becoming an economics major but doesnÂt have to declare for another year.Because of afternoon classes and labs, Bradley rarely is able to gather his entire roster for practices.ÂHeÂs been extremely low maintenance. He just does the work that heÂs supposed to do. He takes care of all the aca-demic side of things, and he loves being down on the baseball field,ÂŽ Brad-ley says. ÂItÂs baseball royalty, thatÂs for sure. I played against Bob for a long time, sort of at the end of his career, when I was getting started, and then one of my last years with the Mariners Bob was in camp with us and I picked his brain and I got a chance to know him a little bit, and probably helped me out more in a month of spring training than any catching instructor that I ever had.ÂŽAnd then Bradley got a chance to know Bret from 1990-92 when they were together in the Mariners organization. Bret had hoped to sign out of high school but wasnÂt picked until the 28th round by Minnesota. He spent three years at Southern Cal, then was chosen by Seattle in the fifth round.Bret appreciates his sonÂs focus on education.ÂI went to college and I didnÂt care about school. I was a baseball player Â„ and I really believed that. I was very naive,ÂŽ Bret says. ÂThatÂs where me and Jake differ. JakeÂs a realist and heÂs very con-scientious about getting his school work done and being a great student, whereas I was just blind-ers on.ÂŽLife at home was con-stant baseball talk, with mom and dad, older sister Savannah and twin brothers Isaiah and Judah, now 13. During dinner when visiting the grandparents, of course there was baseball on ESPN.ÂWe were always watching Uncle AaronÂs game,ÂŽ Jake says.He took an early morn-ing train from Princeton on April 2 to New York for his uncleÂs first home opener as Yankees manager but just after the train passed Secaucus, Aaron texted Jake that the game had been postponed.Jake got to Penn Station and took the next train back. He missed math, but made it back for Spanish.Baseball with the Boones will always be about family. Bret attended the March 2 opener at North Carolina-Wilmington.ÂIt was a really cool feeling,ÂŽ Bret recalls. ÂIt makes me think about my childhood and my grandpa, who was a huge influence on me.ÂŽJake hopes to join legacy of major league Boones

GODSPEAK: IÂd say HendrickÂs boys have gone from a slow walk to a brisk jog, with a sprint on the horizon. KENÂS CALL: They were also 18th and 29th. So no, letÂs wait to suggest theyÂre back in the fast lane.Did Godwin Kelly really pick Chase Elliott to win at Richmond? GODSPEAK: Poor Chase did so bad at Bristol, I think the pendulum makes a big, positive swing for BillÂs boy. KENÂS CALL: Godwin apparently isnÂt big on trends. Current trends suggest Chase has NO CHANCE at Richmond. WINNER: Chase Elliott REST OF TOP 5: Joey Logano, Denny Hamlin, Erik Jones, Brad Keselowski FIRST ONE OUT: William Byron DARK HORSE: Jimmie Johnson DONÂT BE SURPRISED IF: Elliott gets his Â“ rst win of the season and starts visiting Victory Lane on a regular basis. CHRIS BUESCHER VS. TREVOR BAYNE: Buescher said Bayne was holding up several lapped cars trying to stay ahead of race leader Ryan Blaney. Several cars made contact, knocking Blaney out of the race. GODWIN KELLYÂS TAKE: This really should be ÂBlaney vs. lapped cars,ÂŽ but the young driver took the high road. ÂUnfortunately, I hate that it did collect Blaney and everybody involved,ÂŽ Buescher said. Restrictor plates at Charlotte?Calm down, it's only for the All-Star Race next month. And, who knows, it might add a spark to an event that needs one. Granted, that spark might be literal, and might involve the yelp of "Trouble in Turn 3!" There's a school of thought out there that says slowing the cars a bit won't irritate the fans, since few fans are carrying stopwatches. But the slowdown needs to come with tighter competition. The plates will do that Â„ at the cost of honest competition, but hey, can't have everything.You have a better idea?I like the suggestion of rotating the All-Star Race among several tracks. My Â“ rst choice: Take it to Long Island and run the Figure 8 track at Islip Speedway. You think that'd help the ratings? You're welcome.

** B2 Wednesday, April 18, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Alex VeigaThe Associated PressInvestors shrugged off geopolitical jitters Monday, sending U.S. stocks broadly higher and extending the marketÂs gains from last week.Technology companies, health care stocks and industrial firms accounted for much of the rally as traders focused on the latest company earnings and deal news. Oil prices fell after surging last week ahead of the U.S.-led missile attack on SyriaÂs chemical weapons program.ÂItÂs some relief from the global political situ-ation over the weekend,ÂŽ said Willie Delwiche, investment strategist at Baird. ÂThe other thing is weÂve had over the last few weeks particularly this build up in pessi-mism, and that provided some opportunity for stocks to rally once the news of this event was out of the way.ÂŽThe S&P 500 index rose 21.54 points, or 0.8 percent, to 2,677.84.

On Monday, the White House said it was consid-ering imposing additional sanctions on Russia, a key ally of Syrian leader Bashar Assad.Instead, the market shifted its focus to corpo-rate America.

Over the long term, stock prices tend to track the progress of cor-porate profits.Tech, health care boost US indexesThe Associated PressLAS VEGAS Â„ Allegiant Air shares continue to fall in the aftermath of a news report that is raising serious safety questions about the low-cost carrier.Allegiant is defending its safety and says the report by CBS NewsÂ Â60 MinutesÂŽ tells a Âfalse narrativeÂŽ about the airline. Investors, however, fear that the negative publicity will cause travelers to avoid Allegiant, which has a fleet including many older planes that typically require more maintenance.Â60 MinutesÂŽ reported Sunday night that between January 2016 and October 2017, the Las Vegas-based airline experienced more than 100 serious mechanical incidents, including aborted takeoffs, loss of cabin pres-sure, and emergency landings.CBS said that detailed reports from the Federal Avia-tion Administration indicated that Allegiant flights were three-and-a-half times more likely to suffer an in-flight breakdown than flights oper-ated by American, United, Delta, JetBlue or Spirit. The report also aired a longrunning accusation by the Teamsters union local repre-senting Allegiant pilots that the airline discourages pilots from reporting mechanical problems with planes.Allegiant issued a statement by Eric Gust, vice president of operations, charging that the CBS story told a Âfalse narrativeÂŽ about Allegiant and the FAA. He said the airline complies with all FAA require-ments and takes part in many voluntary safety programs and is subject to Ârigorous over-sightÂŽ by the FAA.ÂTo suggest that Allegiant would engage in the practice of asking team members to violate company and regulatory obligations is offensive and defamatory,ÂŽ Gust said.Shares of parent company Allegiant Travel Co. fell $3.45, or 2.3 percent, to $147.60 in midday trading Monday. They dropped 8.6 percent on Friday in anticipation of a damaging news report.Allegiant buys used planes to keep costs down. As of Feb. 2, Allegiant operated 37 McDonnell-Douglas MD-80 planes and 53 Airbus A320 jets. It is phasing out the MD-80s, which burn far more fuel than new planes. AllegiantÂs used planes range between 11 and 32 years old, according to a company regulatory filing.The CBS report updated reporting by the Tampa Bay Times, which said in 2015 that Allegiant planes were four more times than those of other U.S. airlines to make an unplanned landing because of mechanical problems. None of those incidents led to enforcement action from the FAA.The FAA on Monday released a letter in which associate administrator of safety Ali Bahrami defended the agencyÂs performance by pointing to the lack of a fatal crash involving a U.S. airline since 2009.The FAA increased its mon-itoring of Allegiant in 2015 because of labor tension with its pilots. In 2016, the agency moved up a routine review of the airline by two years after a series of aborted takeoffs and other safety incidents. FAA officials took no enforcement action against Allegiant and said they were satisfied that the airline was addressing problems found by inspectors.Allegiant executives termed the FAAÂs 2016 findings ÂminorÂŽ and hailed the report as evidence of the airlineÂs safety.Allegiant Air under re World marketsHow key international stock markets performed: AmsterdamAEX BrusselsBEL20 FrankfurtDAX Hong KongHang Seng LondonFTSE 100MilanFTSE MIB ParisCAC40 SydneyASX All Ordinaries TokyoNikkei ZurichSwiss Market Index % CHANGE PREVIOUS CLOSE TODAYÂS CLOSE ASSOCIATED PRESS KEY -0.3% 548.04 546.62 -0.5% 3,888.31 3,868.18 -0.4% 12,442.40 12,391.41 -1.6% 30,808.38 30,315.59 -0.9% 7,264.56 7,198.20 0.0% 23,330.32 23,329.31 0.0% 5,315.02 5,312.96 0.1% 5,924.70 5,933.00 0.3% 21,778.74 21,835.53 -0.6% 8,776.17 8,726.54 BUSINESS Two Allegiant Air jets taxi at McCarran International Airport, May 2013 in Las Vegas.

PARDUEVera Bremer Sheehan, age 63, of Bonifay, Florida died April 10, 2018. Memorialization was by cremation with Peel Funeral Home in charge of arrangements. A private family memorial service will be held.VERA B. SHEEHANGrowing up, working in the garden wasnÂt my favorite chore, but it keep food on the table. My momÂs garden was truly impressive, it stretched over a full acre behind our house which was in the very middle of town. And lucky me, we didnÂt have just one season of crops, but two thanks spring and fall. She grew everything: watermelons, potatoes, purple hull peas, butter beans, tomatoes, okra, squash, green onions and more. The amount of food that came out of that garden was way more than we needed for our table. The extras would become a challenge so my mom would can a lot of them for use out of season. These canned tomatoes, beans, pickles and more would also become gifts to family and friends or just things that would find themselves on the porch of some of the elderly in our neighborhood. My mom saw a need and would fill a need. As her garden grew, so did the gadgets; my favorite would be the sheller. We grew butter beans, purple hull peas and black eyed peas and we spent a lot of time shelling those beans and peas. Even the littles could shell them, so after dinner we would be spread around the living room watching TV as a family with everyone racing to finish their bowl of shelling first. That pea sheller would change my limited little life. It was a big deal when it showed up. We put a table outside under the carport to support the sheller. It was close to a wall outlet because that bad boy was electric. We would prep the peas by taking them straight from the garden to buckets of water. We had these huge metal tubs that we would soak the beans in (nothing like getting the chore of running from bucket to bucket plunging peas under cool water in the crazy heat). Finally we would dump a fresh pan of peas on the sheller and carefully, watching our fingers as those big black rollers would crush anything in their path, we would push peas through and watch in wonder as they were separated. The peas or beans fell into a pan under the unit and the shell itself fell off the front into a bucket. We could easily go through five gallons of peas at a time. It was a party under the carport! The best time was when night would fall, especially after a summer day of: working in the garden from before the heat set in, cleaning the house during the day, doing laundry and hanging everything on the line to dry, having a quick lunch and nap during the hottest part of the day (I actually spent that time reading in front of the big window fan in my bedroom), and spending the afternoon getting dinner ready. But at night, oh the fun would begin after sundown. The carport lights would shine bright as the hum of the sheller machine and sound of the water hose on top of the machine kept everything fresh and moist. The loud beats of old rock pumped out of the window where a beatbox blared. We would take turns feeding beans and peas through the sheller while dancing to the beats. I learned to twostep with my momma under those carport lights while the mosquitoes and the crickets kept beat. The rest of the world was a blur while we were happy and content on the red dirt patch under the carport. Life seemed so simple back then, we didnÂt have much but what we had my mom presented in the very best light. Everything has music attached as we would find the beat in everything. We smiled and danced through the day and night ... it wasnÂt about what we didnÂt have or what we didÂƒ she made it about being together. As age and time flies by, there are still times when IÂm near her that I just want to grab her hand and swing her into a waltz ... ignoring everything around us and just dancing to the beat. Life is hard and there will always be hardship but oh, to find the music in anything and everything ... itÂs beautiful.

I was 7-years-old, but my first confession was the stepping stone, which brings back dress rehearsals and the sins of omission. We second-graders had to cleanse our souls through confession before receiving the Body of Christ at Communion. Easing oneÂs conscience officially would happen in the confessional HereÂs the process: A priest sits inside the center one, with a small screened window on both side walls to hear a confession from either adjoining room. In the classroom Sister Margaret dispelled all mysteries: Go in, kneel down. Memorize saying, ÂFather I have sinned, this is my first confession,ÂŽ followed by a list of personal failings. Penance is pronounced, that is, prayers to be said in atonement. Go in peace. This was how it was done in 1962. ÂNow letÂs practice!ÂŽ Sister Margaret commanded. She sat down at her desk, and little penitents took turns kneeling next to her to have a go at unburdening their souls. ÂDo I have to tell you my real sins?ÂŽ asked Laurie, a rebel at 7. ÂNo, make them up,ÂŽ said the nun. It was a false sense of privacy. After all, our garden variety sins might be disobedience or fighting with a sibling. What exactly would we make up? ÂI set fire to the house.ÂŽ ÂI robbed a bank.ÂŽ ÂI offed my sister.ÂŽ No, a kid is going to keep it pretty close to the truth. ÂI thought about offing my sister.ÂŽ ÂI ate too much candy.ÂŽ First Confession day found me anxious. I hoped to remember the ÂBless me, FatherÂŽ opener and each of my five sins. Suddenly it was my turn through the purple drapes. Kneeling down, I recited all. Silence. I stood up and stage whispered into the window. Again nothing. I put my ear to the panel just in time to hear classmate ÂJulianÂŽ confess to Âbeing impure.ÂŽ I pulled away, my ears scorched by the fires of hell. Am I supposed to confess hearing that, too? Suddenly, the window slid open on my side. Oh! Nobody told me it had to open! ÂYes, my child?ÂŽ said the voice behind the screen. I stammered through, opting to come clean with ÂYouÂre ugly,ÂŽ but stayed mum on overhearing JulianÂs impurity. I never told anyone as I feared gossip would compound the sin. That was hard. Yet it was early training to keep a secret.

** B6 Wednesday, April 18, 2018 | Washington County News HEALTHOlder Americans are hooked on vitamins despite scarce evidence they workTreatment overkillBy Liz Szabo Kaiser Health News When she was a young physician, Dr. Martha Gulati noticed that many of her mentors were prescribing vitamin E and folic acid to patients. Preliminary studies in the early 1990s had linked both supplements to a lower risk of heart disease. She urged her father to pop the pills as well, recalled Gulati, now chief of cardiology for the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix. But just a few years later, she found herself reversing course, after rigorous clinical trials found neither vitamin E nor folic acid supplements did anything to protect the heart. Even worse, studies linked high-dose vitamin E to a higher risk of heart failure, prostate cancer and death from any cause. ÂÂYou might want to stop taking (these),ÂÂŽ Gulati told her father. More than half of Americans take vitamin supplements, including 68 percent of those age 65 and older, according to a 2013 Gallup poll. Among older adults, 29 percent take four or more supplements of any kind, according to a Journal of Nutrition study published in 2017. Often, preliminary studies fuel irrational exuberance about a promising dietary supplement, leading millions of people to buy in to the trend. Many never stop. They continue even though more rigorous studies Â„ which can take many years to complete Â„ almost never find that vitamins prevent disease, and in some cases cause harm. ÂThe enthusiasm does tend to outpace the evidence,ÂŽ said Dr. JoAnn Manson, chief of preventive medicine at BostonÂs Brigham and WomenÂs Hospital. ThereÂs no conclusive evidence that dietary supplements prevent chronic disease in the average American, Manson said. And while a handful of vitamin and mineral studies have had positive results, those findings havenÂt been strong enough to recommend supplements to the general U.S. public, she said. The National Institutes of Health has spent more than $2.4 billion since 1999 studying vitamins and minerals. Yet for Âall the research weÂve done, we donÂt have much to show for it,ÂŽ said Dr. Barnett Kramer, director of cancer prevention at the National Cancer Institute. A big part of the problem, Kramer said, could be that much nutrition research has been based on faulty assumptions, including the notion that people need more vitamins and minerals than a typical diet provides; that megadoses are always safe; and that scientists can boil down the benefits of vegetables like broccoli into a daily pill. Vitamin-rich foods can cure diseases related to vitamin deficiency. Oranges and limes were famously shown to prevent scurvy in vitamin-deprived 18th-century sailors. And research has long shown that populations that eat a lot of fruits and vegetables tend to be healthier than others. But when researchers tried to deliver the key ingredients of a healthy diet in a capsule, Kramer said, those efforts nearly always failed. ItÂs possible that the chemicals in the fruits and vegetables on your plate work together in ways that scientists donÂt fully understand Â„ and which canÂt be replicated in a tablet, said Marjorie McCullough, strategic director of nutritional epidemiology for the American Cancer Society. More important, perhaps, is that most Americans get plenty of the essentials, anyway. Although the Western diet has a lot of problems Â„ too much sodium, sugar, saturated fat and calories, in general Â„ itÂs not short on vitamins, said Alice Lichtenstein, a professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. And although there are more than 90,000 dietary supplements from which to choose, federal health agencies and advisers still recommend that Americans meet their nutritional needs with food, especially fruits and vegetables. Also, American food is highly fortified Â„ with vitamin D in milk, iodine in salt, B vitamins in flour, even calcium in some brands of orange juice. Without even realizing it, someone who eats a typical lunch or breakfast Âis essentially eating a multivitamin,ÂŽ said journalist Catherine Price, author of ÂVitamania: How Vitamins Revolutionized the Way We Think About Food.ÂŽ That can make studying vitamins even more complicated, Price said. Researchers may have trouble finding a true control group, with no exposure to supplemental vitamins. If everyone in a study is consuming fortified food, vitamins may appear less effective. The body naturally regulates the levels of many nutrients, such as vitamin C and many B vitamins, Kramer said, by excreting what it doesnÂt need in urine. He added: ÂItÂs hard to avoid getting the full range of vitamins.ÂŽ Not all experts agree. Dr. Walter Willett, a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, says itÂs reasonable to take a daily multivitamin Âfor insurance.ÂŽ Willett said that clinical trials underestimate supplementsÂ true benefits because they arenÂt long enough. Who takes vitamins?More than half of Americans take vitamin supplements, including 68 percent of those age 65 and older according to a 2013 Gallup poll. Among older adults, 29 percent take four or more supplements of any kind according to a Journal of Nutrition study published in 2017.BIGSTOCK 4-3497 Public Sale Tharp & Sons Mini Storage in Chipley, FL will hold a sale on these units for non-payment of rent, in accordance with the Fl.
