[UF/ IFAS HORTICULTURALIST MATTHEW ORWAT] By Dara Kam News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ After weeks of discussions between two powerful legislators, the possibility of a special session focused on perennially elusive gambling issues came to an end Wednesday.Incoming Senate President Bill Galvano and incoming House Speaker Jose Oliva con-ceded they were unable to reach a deal despite self-imposed pressure to come up with a gambling plan before the November elections.Weve moved on. Will revisit next session,Ž Oliva, R-Miami Lakes, said in a text Wednesday afternoon.The legislators wanted to head off a proposed constitutional amendment on the general election ballot that, if passed, would give voters con-trol of gambling expansions, decisions now largely con-trolled by the Legislature.The legislative leaders had also used a potential loss of rev-enue from the Seminole Tribe as a rationale for a hurried special session, after lawmakers failed to reach agreement on a gambling deal during the regular session that ended last month.But a new, yearlong deal announced last week by Gov. Rick Scott and the tribe and fears that a proposed expansion of slot machines could backfire put the kibosh on any gambling legislation, according to Galvano and Senate President Joe Negron. Under the arrangement between Scott and the Seminoles, the tribe agreed to continue making about $300 million a year in payments through the 2019 legislative session. In exchange for the payments, which are rooted in a 2010 gambling compact,Ž the tribe would continue to have exclusive rights to offer games such as blackjack at its casinos and would continue to be the states only slot-machine oper-ator outside of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.The Seminoles would keep up the payments provided the state does not enact legislation to expand gaming subject to exclusivity under the compact during the forbearance period.ŽLegislative leaders fold on gambling talks By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comVERNON „ Taevian Pugh knew his monkey apple bread recipe would be a hit, but he didnt know it would win first place at Vernon Elementary Schools tast-ing event.I wasnt that confident, but my friend said, If you bring that, youll win,Ž said the 9-year-old, who could barely catch his breath following the flush of emotions that hit him after his first-place win was announced. And I brought it, and I won.ŽThat kind of excitement „ the youth-ful expression of accomplishment „ was on display throughout the VES library Thursday at third grade teacher Gail Bests classrooms cookbook signing and tasting event. Her third graders from two classes compiled recipes and artwork which were published in From the Kitchens of Mrs. Bests Third Graders cookbook.RECIPEVES PUBLISHES COOKBOOKThe winners of the “ rst round of Gail Bests third grade cookbook signing and tasting event held Thursday at Vernon Elementary School stand proudly with their teacher.

[JACQUELINE BOSTICK | THE NEWS] Some dishes were on display at a cookbook signing and tasting event held Thursday at Vernon Elementary School, hosted by Gail Bests third grade class. [JACQUELINE BOSTICK | THE NEWS] We talk about food a lot, they like food; so, we decided to make a cook-book,Ž Best said. They did all the artwork for the reci-pes themselves. We went through the whole writing process „ we did drafts, and we edited and did a final copy that we sent in. Even the artwork, they had to draft their artwork and get it approved before they could do the real page.ŽIt was pretty fun,Ž she added. It was tedious, but fun.ŽApril Jones attended in support of her daughter Anaiya Fuller who con-tributed recipes for chicken curry and a red velvet des-sert. Jones said the project had Anaiyas full attention „ as a junior baker herself.She loves to watch Zumbos Just Desserts on Netflix,Ž she said. She made sure I made the dishes,Ž she added, noting her daughters desire for the food to come out perfectly.

His primary interest was observing the hands-on and practical applications involved in producing the project.We try to go outside of the four walls of the classroom to give our students an opportunity to connect what their learning in the classroom with the outside world,Ž he said. And this is just one example of that.Ž COOKBOOKFrom Page A1 Ingre di ent s € 3 diced a pp le s € 1 tsp cinnamon € cup sugar € cup butter € 2 cans Pillsbur y Grands!

WCSO is asking for the publics assistance with any information that may lead to the location of Gammons.If anyone had knowledge of crimes being committed or tips contact the Washington County Sheriffs Office at 850-638-6111. The Washington County Sheriffs Office may be contacted anon-ymously by calling 850-638-TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@wcso.us.One arrested, one sought in theft caseRalph Edward Gammons (At-Large) Stephanie Ann Ward Whet her the talk of a special session sparked a renewed agreement between the Seminoles „ who are major contributors to the political committee behind the proposed constitutional amendment „ and Scott, or the other way around, is unclear.But the resulting deal „ and the guarantee that the incoming leaders could rely on another $300 million from the tribe, and possibly more, when they craft next years budget „ withered the prospect of a special session.That reduced the sense of urgency on behalf of Speaker-designate Oliva and President-designate Galvano. I could sense that, when it happened,Ž Negron, R-Stuart, told The News Service of Florida on Wednesday.The deal being considered by Galvano and Oliva would have jeopardized the income from the tribe by allowing slots in up to six of the eight counties „ Brevard, Duval, Gadsden, Hamilton, Lee, Palm Beach, St. Lucie and Washington „ where voters have approved the lucrative machines at local pari-mutuels, an element the Senate has supported. To compete for the six new slot machine licenses, pari-mutuel operators would have had to relinquish active permits, a contractionŽ of gambling pushed by House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O Lakes.The gambling opera-tors also would have had to make some sort of guaran-tee for a minimum amount of revenue to the state to offset potential losses from the tribe.But supporters of the Voters in ChargeŽ proposal, which will appear on the November ballot as Amendment 3, are asserting that the measure, if passed, could apply retroactively, meaning money from both the Seminoles and the pari-mutuels would be off the table, at least temporarily.That was exactly the issueŽ that put an end to the talks, said Negron, who will be replaced by Galvano after the November elections.There also was uncer-tainty that some attorneys believe that the constitutional amendment could be interpreted retroactively so that the expansion to the slot machine counties, which I support because the voters voted, could be stricken down and then the contraction, thats the House priority, could be sustained. Obviously, thats not an equitable situation,Ž he said. So that issue is unclear and uncertain.ŽThe incoming leaders were also concerned that, once a special session on gambling was called, leg-islators would demand that the session be expanded to include other issues, such as funding for public schools and the contro-versial school guardiansŽ program that allows certain specially trained teachers, certified by sheriffs offices, to bring guns to schools.Galvano, R-Bradenton, told the News Service that he and Oliva had discussed the broad outlines of a potential deal, but that ultimately, the revenue uncertaintyŽ and other fac-tors put an end to the talks.The p otential impacts of having a retroactive application of the constitutional amendment, and the litigation and delays ƒ as well as the managing the callŽ of the session ultimately caused the leaders to abandon the issue, he said, at least for now.

Call 638-0212. Washington CountyPUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett After s even-plus years leading Florida, Gov. Rick Scott has several key issues to run on „ and perhaps some things to run from „ as he seeks to unseat incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson this fall. But in either case, his launch of that campaign seemed a bit odd. Scott teed off his senatorial bid with a TV ad talking about term limits. Specifically, he advocates that members of Congress serve just 12 years „ which equates to six House terms or two in the Senate. The U.S. Constitution limits the president to two four-year terms, plus two years of another presidents term, if necessary, for a total of 10 years. Federal lawmakers dont face a ceiling. At the state level, just 15 states impose terms limits for lawmakers, while 36 do so for governors. All the states with legislative limits, including Florida, also cap their governors service. Scott, who himself is term-limited out this year, may be attempting a swipe at Nelson, who served 12 years in the House and is in his 18th year in the Senate. As the Tampa Bay Times reported, Scott calls for an end of this concept of career politicians.Ž The idea seems to be popular. Eightytwo percent of voters support federal term limits, according to the Times. But enacting that would be a herculean task. Establishing term limits means amending the Constitution, requiring two-thirds of Congress and then threequarters of the states to go along. And the idea is so 1990s. Among the 15 states with term limits, only one „ Nebraska „ has adopted them since 1996. The idea may be wildly popular with voters, yet clearly little to no appetite exists in state capitals for implementing these caps. That wasnt alwa ys the case. A generation ago, 19 states, including Florida, enacted term limits on federal lawmakers. But the U.S. Supreme Court struck down those laws in 1995, as the 5-4 majority declared the qualifications for who can serve in Congress are fixedŽ in the Constitution and must be uniform across the country. Allowing states to establish such regulations individually would thus erode the structure envisioned by the Framers,Ž the majority declared. The minority rejected that, saying the states, or rather the people of the individual states, could exercise powers in areas where the Constitution was silent,Ž and setting eligibility requirements for federal office was one of them. The courts debate spills over into contemporary disagreements about them. Still, our question remains: Why would Gov. Scott say terms limits cant be established „ oreven raise this issue? If he wanted to highlight how long Nelson has been a fixture in Washington, he could do so more creatively „ such as pointing out that Floridas senior senator first went to Washington when Jimmy Carter was president. A version of this editorial first appeared in The Ledger, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Term limits talk a curious aspect of Scotts campaignANOTHER VIEW We, in America, have been living in alternate states of reality for quite some time. They are neither red or blue. They are states of consciousness and perception. New borders and boundaries have been erected to divide us. Theyre often alphanumeric in construction; rising and falling with every stroke of a keyboard, button-push of a remote control, or swipe of a touchscreen. They open the gates to awareness, while simultaneously shutting the door on reason. How we perceive our world is increasingly defined by the cable channels we view, the radio stations we listen to, the websites we surf, and to a lesser extent sadly the newspapers we read. For as long as the printing press has existed, journalists have expressed differing points-of-view. In their earliest incarnations, books, pamphlets, and newspapers were put out by individuals who voiced their opinions in hopes of moving their readers; to convince them to take a similar stance even more than they factually covered events. The newsŽ was an extension of those who had the means to publish. Newspapers historically followed this pattern in cities and towns, large and small. People tookŽ papers that reflected their personal values and worldview. In many communities, multiple print news outlets existed, whose coverage and advertising targeted those with similar sensibilities. Broadsheets appealed to traditional conservatives, some to more progressive audiences. Tabloids often spoke to the workingclass and, sometimes, to immigrants or the radical fringe. Reporters who wrote for those publications covered the same stories, fought for the same scoops, and spun their coverage based primarily upon those owners and publishers hoped to influence. The papers were run by upstanding citizens and civic leaders. They wielded considerable power but were not demagogues. Most sought to open readers eyes to new realities and societal changes. Few propagated lies and deception. If only this were true today. Demagoguery does exist, and it is motivated by both profit and perspective, no matter how distorted the prospect may be. Major media conglomerates, whose leaders have included families with names like Murdoch, Sinclair, and Breitbart, often host those who are not beyond expressing outright lies. They also accuse other mainstream outlets of purveying fake news,Ž no matter how wellsubstantiated the facts may be. Brakes are rarely applied to the editorial ramblings of many of these news outlets. Its even worse online where bloggers, creators of what are truly fake newsŽ sites, as well as some that are more legitimate, preach to choirs comprised of the angry and disaffected; giving voice to extremist positions. And lets not forget those sites under the control of outside influencers whose sole intent is to foster discord among us. It would be disingenuous to avoid examining the voices of other cable networks, those whose ownership is associated with corporate logos more so than surnames; the usual suspects, like MSNBC and CNN, that are targeted by right-leaning ranters. Sorry to disillusion their critics, but what is seen interspersed with opinion on those channels is news; based on hard, welldocumented facts. And when mistakes or errors in judgment occur (and they sometimes do), those responsible are subjected to intense scrutiny; with public apologies, corrections, or retractions being made. While some mainstream conservatives may cringe when extremist or ignorant sentiments are expressed by friends and colleagues, by the president, or on the channels and sites that serve as their platforms, they are loathe to publicly denounce them. Self-preservation and careerism is clearly more important than veracity. Ongoing cries of fake newsŽ and the constant repetition of lies and half-truths only strengthen the borders and boundaries that divide us. Those on both sides oftentimes remain cloistered, living in separate states of reality to the detriment of us all. In the days before cable news and online websites ran amok, legendary journalist Walter Cronkite ended his television broadcast each weekday evening with the phrase And thats they way it is...ŽAnd we believed him. These days, many of us dont really know who or what to believe. Thats just the way it is.The Alternate States of America B l a i r B e s s Blair BessBy Peter FuntThree disparate events within a weeks time captured the worlds attention and provided a fresh take on how we regard pomp and circumstance. The funeral of Barbara Bush was a celebration in the grandest sense of a beloved first lady, honored on April 21 after 92 robust years of life. If only there had been a television camera behind the pulpit to scan the faces of those in the front row. On one side were former presidents Bush 41 and Bush 43, along with members of the Bush family. On the other side, Melania Trump sat next to Barack Obama; then came Michelle Obama and, to her left, Bill and Hillary Clinton. It would be a mistake to attach too much political significance to a funeral, but the vibe that day was a reminder of the civility that frequently marked our political world in Pre-Trump days. We dont have royalty in our country but if we did, the roster would include several of those in the front row. In her final gesture, Barbara Bush created a tranquil moment that brought people together. The British do have royalty, of course, and its brightest stars took to the world stage April 23 with the birth of the third child for Prince William and Kate Middleton. Scoff as we might from time to time about British traditions, the fact that they manage to keep royalty and governance separate is a virtue especially considering the state of things in Washington. And so the world turned its attention, briefly, from Kates baby to the state visit of French President Emmanuel Macron and wife Brigitte to the White House. For the state dinner April 24, Mrs. Trump donned a black Chantilly lace Chanel Haute Couture gown, hand painted with silver and embroidered with crystal and sequins. There were 1,200 branches of cherry blossom, 2,500 stems of white sweet peas and 1,000 stems of white lilac. The guest list, as distributed by Mrs. Trumps office, included The Honorable Jared Kushner and The Honorable Ivanka Trump,Ž along with at least 10 billionaires from private business. The world saw an administration that has neither the charm of British royalty nor the dignity of the Bush family. It wasnt so much pomp as it was pompous.A week of pomp and circumstance

** Washington County News | Saturday, April 28, 2018 A5 DATELINESBERLIN SUPERIOR, WIS.Explosion rocks Wisconsin re“ nery, forcing evacuationsAn explosion rocked a refinery in northwestern Wis-consin on Thursday, injuring at least 11 people, forcing the evacuation of homes, schools and a hospital, and sending a plume of noxious smoke bil-lowing into the air.Authorities said a tank of crude oil or asphalt exploded about 10 a.m. at the Husky Energy oil refinery in Superior, a city of about 27,000 that shares a Lake Superior shipping port with nearby Duluth, Minnesota. That prompted them to order the evacuation of a three-mile radius around the refinery, as well as a 10-mile corridor south of it where the smoke was heading.It was unclear how many people were being evacuated.

It said 4,000 bears was an optimum figure from an ecological, social and economic point of view.Ž It said the bears were encroaching on areas where people lived.The ministry suggested hunting as one of the ways of getting rid of the bears, prompting criticism WWF Romania claimed the proposal contravened European Union rules regarding strictly protected species.ŽWASHINGTONTrump boasted hed open all JFK “ les, but now says he cant President Donald Trump boasted last fall that he would open all remaining John F.

[MARK HUMPHREY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Foster KlugThe Associated PressGOYANG, South Korea „ North Korean leader Kim Jong Un set off from his stronghold in the capital of Pyongyang for the border with South Korea, which hell cross later Friday for historic talks with his rival, South Korean Presi-dent Moon Jae-in.The leaders, who seemed on the verge of war months ago, will take a pleasant walk, plant a commemorative tree, inspect an honor guard and belly-up to a lavish banquet. Whats less clear is whether they can make any progress in closed door talks on the only thing the world really cares about: North Koreas growing arsenal of nuclear weapons.Kims news agency said that the leader would open-heartedlyŽ discuss with Moon all the issues arising in improving inter-Korean rela-tions and achieving peace, prosperity and reunification of the Korean peninsulaŽ in a historicŽ summit. Its the first time one of the ruling Kim leaders has crossed over to the southern side of the Demilitarized Zone since the Korean War ended in 1953.Nuclear weapons will top the agenda. The North likely still has work to do before it perfects the finer technologi-cal points on its long-range nukes, but theres little question that it stands on the threshold of becoming what Kim says his nation already is: A nuclear weapons power.Fridays summit will be the clearest sign yet of whether its possible to peacefully negotiate those weapons away from a country that has spent decades doggedly building its bombs despite crippling sanctions and near-constant international opprobrium.Expectations are generally low, given that past so-called breakthroughs on North Koreas weapons have collapsed amid acrimonious charges of cheating and bad faith. Skeptics of engagement have long said that the North often turns to interminable rounds of diplomacy meant to ease the pain of sanctions, give it time to perfect its weapons, and win aid for unfulfilled nuclear promises.Advocates of engagement say the only way to get a deal is to do what the Koreas will try Friday: Sit down and see whats possible.Moon, a liberal whose election last year ended a decade of conservative rule in Seoul, will be looking to make some headway on the Norths nuclear program in advance of a planned summit in several weeks between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump.Kim, the third member of his family to rule his nation with absolute power, is eager, both in this meeting and in the Trump talks, to talk about the nearly 30,000 heavily armed U.S. troops stationed in South Korea and the lack of a formal peace treaty ending the Korea War „ two factors, the North says, that make nuclear weap-ons necessary.North Korea may also be looking to use whatever happens in the talks with Moon to set up the Trump summit, which it may see as a way to legitimize its declared status as a nuclear power.One possible outcome Friday, aside from a rise in general goodwill between the countries, could be a proposal for a North Korean freeze of its weapons ahead of later denuclearization. Seoul and Washington will be pushing for any freeze to be accompanied by rigorous and unfettered outside inspections of the Norths nuclear facilities, since past deals have crumbled because of North Koreas unwillingness to open up to snooping foreigners.South Korea, in announcing Thursday some details of the leaders meeting, acknowledged that the most difficult sticking point between the Koreas has been North Koreas level of denuclearization commitment. Kim has report-edly said that he wouldnt need nuclear weapons if his governments security could be guaranteed and external threats were removed.Whatever the Koreas announce Friday, the spectacle of Kim being feted on South Korean soil will be something to behold. Kim and Moon will be enjoying each others company in the jointly controlled village of Panmunjom near the spot where a defecting North Korean soldier recently fled south in a hail of bullets fired by his former comrades.Kim, Moon to meet in historic talks NATION & WORLDPowwow marks the rst time since 1953 that a ruling NKorean leader has visited south of the demilitarized zoneFour North Korean soldiers, center far, and four South Korean soldiers, right and left, stand Thursday at the Joint Security Area in the Demilitarized Zone, South Korea. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will plant a commemorative tree and inspect an honor guard together after Kim walks across the border Friday for their historic summit, Seoul of“ cials said Thursday.

The team says LiAngelo injured an ankle and LaMelo has been both-ered by back pain.Lithuanian basketball writer Donatas Urbo-nas says on Twitter that father LaVar Ball told him he was upset over LaMelos diminished playing time. Nineteen-year-old LiAngelo averaged 12.6 points and 21.2 minutes in 14 games, and 16-year-old LaMelo averaged 6.5 points and 12.4 minutes in eight games.BARCELONA, SPAINNadal cruises into Barcelona Open quartersafael Nadal cruised into the Barcelona Open quarterfinals by defeat-ing fellow Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-1, 6-3 on Thursday.The top-ranked Nadal converted on his second match point to clinch his 16th straight victory on clay and set up an encounter with Martin Klizan, who eliminated Novak Djokovic in the second round.I came out with the conviction that I could play a lot better than I did yesterday (against Roberto Carballes Baena), and thats what happened,Ž Nadal said.Coming off his 11th Monte Carlo title, Nadal has won 11 of his 12 ATP Tour matches this season, with the only loss coming from an injury retirement in the Australian Open quarterfinals.He has won 40 consecutive sets on clay to extend his own record, and has won 33 of his last 34 matches on the dirt.I had more options in the second set but a player like Nadal doesnt give you many chances,Ž the 69th-ranked Garcia-Lopez said.Nadal needs to win his 11th Barcelona title this week to retain his No. 1 ranking.MOSCOWBiathlon coach “ red over sexual misconduct claimA Russian biathlon coach has been suspended after being accused of offering a 17-year-old female athlete a place in the national team in return for sexual favors.

Teryushkov adds Tutmin has been fired from the regional team, suspended from coaching and his case could be referred to prosecutors.Teryushkov says the athlete will now be given full support and protectionŽ to resume her career. The Associated Press By Stephen WhynoThe Associated PressWhen the Washington Capitals faced the New York Islanders in the play-offs five years in a row in the 1980s, players knew everything. They knew where Mike Bossy loved to shoot from, that Bob Nystrom was going to run them over and that theyd better watch out for Denis Potvin in the neutral zone.We became so used to one another we were expected to play the Islanders in the playoffs,Ž former Capitals winger Craig Laughlin said. At some point, we always knew we were going to play them.ŽIts starting to feel that way now for the Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins, who are meeting in the second round of the playoffs for the third consecutive year. Two teams playing each other over and over again in the postseason is a common theme in NHL history, especially when 16 of the 21 teams faced off in a divisional format similar to what has been in place since 2014 and is responsible for Capitals-Penguins III.The Capitals faced the New York Rangers from 2011-13 and the Chi-cago Blackhawks played the Vancouver Canucks from 2009-11. Hockey has changed plenty since the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens played series seven years in a row from 1984-90, but all that familiarity still breeds a whole lot of contempt.For the players, its more difficult,Ž said former Edmonton defenseman Kevin Lowe, whose Oilers faced Winnipeg three playoffs in a row from 198385. The body checks are heavier, the crosschecks are harder, the slashes behind the play are harder.ŽLowe doesnt think there are any advantages to players seeing the same opponent over and over again in the playoffs. Even on a Stan-ley Cup-champion team in Edmonton, there was always pressure to beat the Jets because they had done it in previous years.Seeing the Penguins beat the Capitals on the way to the Cup the past two years, Lowe believes the stronger motivation belongs to Washington.Theyve made their life miserable, so that amps them up more,Ž Lowe said. Theres no real advantage to the team thats winning those years because you know every years differ-ent and you thought, Oh, we can beat these guys because we beat them before. Its a new set of circumstances every time you play.ŽFormer Philadelphia defenseman Brad Marsh recalled similar circum-stances when the Flyers faced the Rangers in the playoffs in the 80s. New York was often dozens of points back in the stand-ings and yet won their series sometimes.Playo rematches crank up hatred Washington Wizards guard Ty Lawson looks on during the second half of Game 4 of an NBA “ rst-round playoff series against the Toronto Raptors, Sunday in Washington. [NICK WASS/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Less than three weeks ago, Ty Lawson was playing professional bas-ketball in China.Nowadays, hes one of the first subs off the bench for the Washington Wizards in their Eastern Conference first-round series against the Toronto Raptors.Lawson is hardly the only player who went from not having a spot on an NBA roster to getting some run, and maybe even filling a key role, during these playoffs. As much as teams develop plans for acquir-ing talent via the draft, free agency or trades, sometimes a late pickup can become a piece that completes the puzzle.Its not ideal,Ž Wizards coach Scott Brooks said about adding someone on short notice. It (requires) a lot of work that has to be done in trying to figure it out and try to incorporate him and integrate him into our offense and defen-sive schemes.ŽWith Lawson, though, Brooks added, It probably is not as much of a disadvantage because hes been in the league, under-stands the NBA and understands the schemes. A lot of the schemes are the same. Its just different names and a lot of the plays are the same but different names. He picks up things pretty quick. His IQ level is extremely high.ŽThe series, which the Raptors lead 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Friday, has been Lawsons first NBA action in about a year. He was with the Sacramento Kings last season and spent time with three other clubs before that; Lawson was always a success on the court, although a couple of arrests in 2015 on drunken driving charges drew unwanted attention.His sudden return to the leagues hardwoods came in Game 2 against Toronto, when Brooks turned to his 30-yearold backup and told him to replace All-Star John Wall.It was a little bit of a shock. ... I was like, Who?Ž Lawson said. Once I got my feet wet, hit my first shot, I felt like I was back at home.Ž Sure looks that way.The guard, a 2009 firstround draft pick, is averaging 5.8 points, 3.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 19 minutes per game, and hes made a total of only three turnovers for the Wizards.Thats a smaller version of John Wall. Hes so quick. ... Push the pace. Get out in transition,Ž Wizards forward Otto Porter Jr. said. Someone you cant sleep on. He might be small, but he can create a lot of havoc in the paint. A lot of us know Ty, just from playing against him, so it wasnt nothing to get him acquainted with everybody.ŽThere have been other such easy fits.For all the talk about the Philadelphia 76ers processŽ that landed cornerstone stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, for example, they moved into the East semifinals with notable contributions against the Miami Heat from two more impromptu arrivals, 3-point specialist Marco Belinelli and forward Ersan Ilyasova.The team signed both in February after they were sent packing by worst-in-the-East Atlanta. Belinelli is averaging 16.6 points in the playoffs, while Ilyasova is putting up 10.8 points and 9.2 rebounds, including three of his five career 10-rebound games.When the 76ers picked up Ilyasova, they waived Trevor Booker, who then went to the Indiana Pacers. Booker has added a physical presence for Indiana in its series against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.As Oklahoma City faces the Utah Jazz, the Thunder are starting Corey Brewer, who was brought in last month after he was bought out by the Los Ange-les Lakers. Greg Monroe, added by the Celtics after being bought out by Phoenix, entered Thurs-day nights Game 6 of Bostons series against the Milwaukee Bucks averaging 7.0 points and 5.2 rebounds.Even former league MVP Der-rick Rose became available out of nowhere, signing with the Tim-berwolves in March. As part of a reserve unit that had been quiet most of the season, he offered some instant offense in Minnesotas first-round loss to the Houston Rockets.For the Wizards, Lawson stepped in as a reliable and expe-rienced backup to Wall.We need his scoring, we need his playmaking, we need his toughness, we need his ability to get into the paint,Ž Brooks said. And he plays with no fear.ŽLawson crammed for his debut by watching Washingtons main plays on an iPad, learning about 60 to 70 percent of the offense that way. In his first game, hed ask a teammate to let the basket-ball bounce on an inbound pass so Lawson would have a moment to ask Brooks which play to run.But Lawson also relied on a simple mindset.I was like, Be aggressive,Ž he said, and well figure it out.ŽWizards Lawson among late pickups helping playo teamsThe Boston Celtics Greg Monroe shoots past Milwaukees Thon Maker during the second half of Game 3 of an NBA “ rst-round playoff series, April 20 in Milwaukee.

The harvest has already begun in Mexico and the southern U.S., which means the large flower buds can already be found in stores. Meanwhile, at farmers markets of all latitudes, purveyors of bedding plants are selling potted artichokes for the garden. Even in Montana, the summers are getting hot enough that these Mediterranean members of the thistle family need to be planted a full 5 feet apart. Artichoke buds are harvested before they bloom into flowers. Unless, of course, you prefer to allow them to flower and look at rather than eat them. Myrna Varner became an artichoke grower when a vendor „ Luci Brieger of Lifeline Produce in Victor, Montana „ gifted her a baby plant as she was buying tomato starts. Now Varner grows three plants a year, and they produce later into the fall than the tomatoes. Im ready to tear the garden up and they were still bearing,Ž she told me. The best of thistles It is good for a man to eat thistles, and to remember that he is an ass,Ž notes Eneas Sweetland Dallas in his 1877 book Kettners Book of the Table: A Manual of Cookery, Practical, Theoretical, Historical.Ž There are several elaborate ways of dressing the artichoke „ the Barigoule way and Lyonnese way, for example.Ž He calls these fancy methods frantic attempts to paint the lily and to perfume the violet.Ž I think Dallas is spot-on in his lessis-more approach to artichokes. Depend upon it,Ž he concludes, the simplest way of dressing the artichoke is the best.Ž How to prepare Dallas recommends boiling the bud, but there is a case to be made for a roasting. I enjoy the caramelized flavors and the layers of texture that can result from some oven time. I like roasting artichokes so much, in fact, I roast them twice. First I trim them, by laying the artichokes on their sides on a cutting board and giving them flat-tops with a big, heavy knife. On each artichoke, slice a round, flat plane an inch or two from the tip. This reveals a crosssection of green, purple, pale yellow and burgundy leaves. Trim the stem to within two inches of the bottom. Place each head in a baking container in such a way that it can stay upright „ by which we mean flat side up. In a wide-mouth pint jar, the artichoke looks like a flower in a vase. A Pyrex measuring cup does the same thing. A banana bread dish holds two large artichokes, side by side. If you dont have anything that will work, trim the bottoms off so they sit flat and upright unsupported, and wing it from there. Put a half-inch of water and a clove of garlic at the bottom of whatever container you use, and set the artichoke(s) in place. Give a solid shake or two of salt onto the top of each artichoke, followed by two tablespoons lemon or lime juice, poured slowly enough that it seeps down between the leaves. Then slowly pour in about a third of a cup of olive oil per large artichoke. Cover each artichoke in foil, pressing firmly on all sides to make a seal between the foil and the thing thats holding the artichoke. With the water in the bottom, you are essentially constructing a steamer. Place the upright artichoke in its holder in the oven at 350 and bake (jars should be placed on a tray or skillet in case they tip). As it cooks, the oil will find its way down through the vascular tissue of the bud, through the stem and out the cut end and into the water below. After an hour, carefully remove the artichoke and holder from the oven, and take off the foil. When it has cooled enough to handle, gently pull the leaves away from the center, working all away around the artichoke, loosening the bud as if you were trying to force it to bloom. Get the lemon oil from below the artichoke and pour it back into the top of the half-baked artichoke, and put it back in the oven with the foil off, so the outer leaves get crispy as the center melts into a molten core of flavor. Cook about another hour, until the leaves pull off easily.FLASH IN THE PANWhether or not we believe the adage an apple a day keeps the doctor away,Ž we all agree that apples taste good whether raw or cooked. When I think of apples, many times apple butter comes to mind. Perhaps that is because Mauna, my friend and the best assistant I ever had, loved apple butter. I had never tasted apple butter until Mauna and I were in the Smoky Mountains testing recipes. We were served muffins with apple butter at one of our favorite restaurants, and it wasnt long until I was looking forward to this tasty treat every morning. Apple Butter Rolls€ 3 cups Southern Yeast Biscuit Dough (see below) € 4 oz. cream cheese, softened at room temperature € cup apple butter € cup “ rmly-packed light brown sugar € 1 cups confectioners sugar € 2 tablespoons apple juice Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9-inch cake pan. Spoon the soft dough onto a well-” oured surface. Knead until smooth. Roll to a rectangle about 10 by 16 inches. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, apple butter and brown sugar. Beat until smooth and spread over dough. Roll jelly-roll-fashion, starting with the 16-inch side. Cut into 1-inch slices. Place slices in cake pan. Bake about 20 minutes, or until rolls are slightly browned and no longer doughy. Turn out on a plate and then invert onto another plate so rolls will be right side up. Combine confectioners sugar and apple juice. Beat until smooth and drizzle over top of rolls. If drizzle is too thin, simply add more confectioners sugar.Southern Yeast Biscuit Dough€ cup warm water € 2 tablespoons sugar € 2 pkgs. dry yeast ( oz. each) € 5 cups self-rising ” our € 1 teaspoon baking soda € 1 cup shortening € 2 cups buttermilk Combine water and sugar in small bowl. Stir in yeast and set aside until yeast becomes bubbly. In large mixing bowl, combine ” our and baking soda, and stir to mix. Cut in shortening using pastry blender, a fork or your “ ngertips until mixture resembles cornmeal. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk. Stir with a large wooden spoon until well mixed. This will not be a smooth dough. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed. It will keep for about a week.Email Prudence at prudencehilburn@aol.com.

While reading up on some investments for dummiesŽ I realized that money and finances are not something that comes easy to me. In my home growing up, we never discussed money. There was no mention of anything that even pertained to money but I knew that it was a sensitive subject. I avoided asking for things that cost money „ so maybe there was an undercurrent there. I grew up knowing for a fact that it didnt cost anything to have fun. Oh but the fun we could have „ you give my mom an idea and she took off like a rocket. But those times when something would cost extra? I hated seeing the look on her face when I asked for those „ so I tried not to. My better half and I have been together since we were young, and dating at 19 and 20 back then meant that payday was date night. We had a blast and spent the rest of the week holding our breath, living off leftovers and meatless recipes. We didnt know any better. Unless you are taught about money, you dont know money. The hardest part for me was the concept that God loves me and my money. Easy there „ but fact is fact „ you cant out give the Lord. I dare you „ try. We raised our littles living from paycheck to paycheck. I taught myself thrifting and every time I thought I had gotten a little smarter, I would go to the super store and splurge. It was just one step forward and three steps back. There can be a spirit of poverty that follows you from generation to generation. I have seen good solid families, those that love the Lord and love their family struggle for years to regain footing again and again. The spirit of poverty is a real thing. Our faith in God is not duct tape that will fix those deeply seated spirits. A relationship with Jesus isnt to fix our life „ its not to make everything rainbows and glitter „ its recognizing that we are sinners who without him, we have no way of standing before God in Heaven. Considering that we live in a world bound by sin, expect to have battles, expect to have troubles and while you are dealing with those things, you stand strong in your faith. Overcoming poverty is a struggle that can take all your faith and strain you to the limits but you have to come at it with the understanding that God loves you and he wants the best for you. Yet you live in a world that fell into sin after the fall of man and Satan is a thief in the night that steals all that is good from you. So how do you break that chain of poverty? I speak from my very own path and journey here. Im not an educated theologian, but I read my Bible and I walk in my faith „ that said „ you have to plant seeds before anything can grow. You cant stand in an empty garden and cry for the lack of wheat. You can plow that field over and over, wringing your hands and walking back and worth worrying over the soil, but until you plant seeds in that fertile soil, nothing will grow. Sowing seeds means that you are doing what God expects you to with your money. Pay him first „ tithe „ if not to a church, then to a missionary, but you have to freely toss those seeds down to set root before you can expect any type of growth. Its hard when you have a spirit of poverty. Money is a precious commodity that isnt easy to come by. We struggle to have enough and cover just the basics, yet we are walking in the Earthly realm when we have those thoughts. God loves you and you cannot out give, out bless him. Plant those seeds, anonymously sponsoring things, giving and do it with the knowledge that he will grow those seeds.
