The council however, is lean-ing towards not utilizing that clause as they are in an exclusive contract with an internet provider at the town hall.In other business, the council approved a request to Capital City Bank for an extension on a loan payment due to waiting on funds from the state for Florida Rec-reation Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) grant.Wausau Town Council will meet again in regular session at 6 p.m. on June 14.

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross recently made his first public appearance since announcing he was retiring from Congress. And the Lakeland Republicans comments reminded us that a prickly issue remains unresolved. Ross said participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, ought to have an avenue to earn U.S. citizenship, according to Floridapolitics.com. We have to make sure those who came here of no accord of their own are treated fairly. Let them earn their way to citizenship. ... Thats not amnesty; it is earning their way,Ž he said. Ross indicated he was disappointedŽ that such a view had garnered criticism from immigr ation hardliners in Congress. After all, those who follow Ross closely know that hes no softy on dealing with illegal immigration. Ross has supported measures to crack down on sanctuary cities and also has favored constructing a wall along the Mexican border. DACA, crafted as protection against deportation by the Obama administration, covers roughly 800,000 people whose parents entered illegally and brought them to the United States as children. Last September the Trump administration announced the end of the program, giving Congress until early March to craft a legislative solution. As Congress dawdled, 15 states sued to prevent the administration from ending DACA. Week before last, however, seven states sued the administration from the other side, for failing to end DACA, which they argue is unconstitutional. Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry told NPR lawmakers could settle this dispute. Our objective,Ž he said, is to get Congress to act.Ž Good luck with that. Ross is solidly in the mainstream on DACA. In fact, its one of the few things most Americans can agree on. A month ago a Quinnipiac University poll revealed that 71 percent of Americans believe illegal immigration from Mexico is an important problem.Ž Yet 77 percent thought DACA enrollees should be allowed to remain in America and apply for citizenship. To that end, Ross is one of 59 sponsors „ 29 Republicans, 30 Demo crats „ of the Uniting and Securing America Act. The measure would permit DACA participants who have been in the country at least four years to gain permanent legal status if they enroll in higher edu cation, join the military or are gainfully employed, among other requirements. Once they achieve that, they could pursue citizenship just as immigrants who utilize existing legal channels. The bill offers a fair compromise, contains similar provisions as other DACA relief bills floating around Capitol Hill and has a solid base of bipartisan support in the House. Yet it hasnt moved an inch through the legislative mill since being introduced in January „ which suggests the competing lawsuits will force the Supreme Court, and not our lawmakers, to do t he dirty work for DACA enrollees. Its perplexing why this cant get done, but the DACA stalemate demonstrates the political process is as broken as our immigration system. No wonder Dennis Ross wants out. This guest editorial was originally published in the Lakeland Ledger, a sister newspaper of the within Gatehouse Media.Congress should pass DACA compromise ANOTHER VIEW With President Trump, you never know.Ž Those were the exact words a U.S. Senate legislative aide said to me when we were talking about President Trumps immigration views. The specific topic at the time was deferred action for childhood arrivals, DACA, which candidate Trump had vowed to end on Day 1Ž of his presidency, but didnt. In part because of President Trumps DACA dithering, the program and its future have since devolved into a political and legal quagmire. President Trumps most recent fumbling and bumbling came during a Michigan rally when he said, to his bases horror but to the powerful agricultural lobbys delight, that we have to have your workers come in,Ž a reference to issuing H-2A agriculture visas, a program that its critics say is systematically abused. As President Trump spoke, the Washington, D.C.-based National Council for Agricultural Employers, WAFLA, formerly the Washington [State] Farm Labor Association, the Washington [State] Growers League and the Fresno [California] County Farm Bureau could barely contain their collective joy. In fiscal year 2017, the U.S. Department of Labor approved 200,049 H-2A visas for foreign-born agricultural guest workers, up 20.7 percent from 165,741 in FY 2016. Just days before President Trumps speech, the Labor Department settled with G Farms, a Maricopa County, Arizona, agribusiness, on the grounds that it had subjected its grossly underpaid workers to simply inhumaneŽ conditions. G Farms had housed 69 guest workers in overcrowded, unsanitary semi-truck trailers and school buses, where they were exposed to Arizonas summer heat without proper ventilation, and with dangling gas lines fed through bus windows. The no-cap H-2A visa should be a national embarrassment because it enables agricultural employers to import vulnerable, easily exploitable individuals. The farm industry takes advantage of the susceptible while neglecting its own responsibility to enter the 21st century through mechanization. Sharing in the blame is the federal government which, through the H-2A, sanctions modern day cheap, pliant slave labor. In 2014, Indiana University published its study which found that, because employers control their visas, legal temporary guest workers are guaranteed to be underpaid and cant advance in the labor market. Growers contend that without easy access to cheap labor, crops will rot in the field.Ž Crops that dont rot, agricultural representatives claim, will soar to unaffordable retail prices, the mythical $20 avocado. A wealth of nonpartisan academic research undermines the advocacy groups allegations. In its 2016 overview of the effect of farm labor costs on consumer prices, National Geographic reported that if workers wages increased by 47 percent, grocery bills would go up just $21.15 a year, or $1.76 a month. Those findings are consistent with other academics conclusions, including those from Iowa State, the University of California Davis and the Economic Policy Institute. The H-2A visa and the ample supply of cheap labor it makes readily available have slowed mechanizations progress and eliminated growers incentive to pay wages high enough to attract American workers. Historically, the solution to labor shortages, assuming employers can document their existence, is to pay more, not to hire illegal immigrants, a crime, or lobby for more employment-based visas. Case in point: In 2017, Christopher Ranch, which grows garlic on 5,000 acres in Gilroy, Calif., announced that it would hike pay for its farmworkers from $11 an hour to $13 an hour that year, or 18 percent, and then to $15 in 2018. The result: the ranch went from having a worker shortage to having a 150-person employment waiting list. Created in 1952 as part of the Immigration and Nationality Act, the H-2A requires employers to seek Americans first, a condition that theyve ignored too long, in large part because of the federal governments willful blindness towards its abuses.Feds Sanction Slave Labor, 21st Century StyleSo Donald Trump has a date with Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12. Good deal „ so far. As long as the president doesnt get arrested for chewing gum or hanged for spitting on the sidewalk, his meet-up with North Koreas Rocket ManŽ in that spotless city might actually become a historic summit. Singapore 2018 might even become one of Trumps legacies, though I suspect at this point hes not as fixated on legacy building as most presidents. Hes more focused on making a deal with a nasty communist regime that no previous president has been able to make. Well know soon enough if Singapore is for show or for real. Meanwhile, I hope when Mr. Trump sits down to negotiate with Kim Jong Un hell remember what happened when Ronald Reagan went to Reykjavik in October of 1986 to meet Mikhail Gorbachev. The hope was for the two superpowers to discuss ways to put limits on strategic nuclear weapons arsenals and to come up with a sweeping armscontrol agreement that would bring about the major mothballing of their nukes and missiles. Everyone in the administration „ including Nancy „ was excited because they thought Reykjavik was going to be Ronald Reagans greatest legacy. Everyone was pushing him „ relentlessly „ to make a deal with Gorbachev. Almost any deal. But when Mr. Gorbachev said he wouldnt sign the document unless the United States gave up the Strategic Defense Initiative „ the proposed Star WarsŽ ballistic missile defense system „ my father said Nyet. He got up and walked away from the table. Everyone was shocked and concerned by what my father did, but the rest was history. The Berlin Wall came down. The Cold War was over. Michael,Ž he said, for too long Ive watched presidents of the United States meet with Secretary Generals of the Soviet Union.ŽEvery time we sit down with them theyre asking us to give up something to get along with them.ŽI want to be the first president who says Nyet. Thats the reason I wanted to run for president. In order for President Trumps meeting on June 12 to be a success, and he certainly has it in him to make it one, he also has to be willing to walk away. You cant make a deal just because youre thinking its going to be good for your legacy. Your legacy might be when you stand up and walk away from a bad deal. The only way youll ever win real victories against the people who run hellholes like the USSR, North Korea and Iran is if youre willing to walk „ and they know it. Anyone can make a bad deal „ look at the one President Obama made with Iran. So my suggestion to the president is, Dont make a deal with North Korea just to make a deal. Sometimes the best deal is to walk away.ŽAnd anyway, Mr. Trump, with three American prisoners safely back home from North Korea, youve already got a win.The Deal with Singapore J o e G u z z a r d i Joe Guzzardi Michael Reagan

The system is getting extra attention as it has potential to develop into a subtropical or tropical storm and comes as the state prepares for the six-month hurricane season, which begins June 1. The National Hurricane Center said it anticipates the system to produce widespread cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms across much of Florida and southeastern Georgia. Regardless of subtrop-ical or tropical cyclone formation, this system will produce locally heavy rainfall and possi-ble flash flooding across portions of Florida and the southeastern United States during the next few days,Ž the Hurricane Center said in an advisory Monday.State braces for rain, oodingWe want to highlight our hometown businesses!

Gen. Evan Dertien, commander of the 96th Test Wing at Eglin Air Force Base, are among scheduled panelists for a Florida congressional del-egation hearing Thursday on drilling off the states coasts. Also scheduled to appear during the hearing in Washington are Mark Alderson, executive director of the Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program, and Ken Milito, director of upstream and industry operations for the American Petroleum Institute. The hearing comes amid continued debate over plans by President Donald Trumps administration to allow oil and gas drilling in federal waters off various parts of the country. U.S. Inte-rior Secretary Ryan Zinke appeared in January in Tallahassee and said drilling would not occur off Floridas coasts. He repeated his stance last Thursday before the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee. However, the administrations stance has continued to draw questions as the waters off Floridas coast havent officially been removed from the proposal. The issue involves waters beyond the nations outer continental shelf a juris-dictional term describing submerged lands 10.36 statutory miles off Flori-da's West Coast and three nautical miles off the East Coast.

[ALEXANDER ZEMLIANICHENKO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Niniek KarminiThe Associated PressSURABAYA, Indonesia „ The Muslim family that carried out suicide attacks on three churches in Indonesias second-largest city, killing a dozen people as well as its two young daughters, lived com-fortably in an upper-middle class suburb and was on friendly terms with a Chris-tian neighbor.The coordinated bombings on Sunday, followed on Monday by a suicide attack by another family on police headquarters in Surabaya, have horrified Indonesians who typically see their Muslim-majority country as diverse and tolerant.Neighbors said there were no signs members of the family were planning the acts of violence that President Joko JokowiŽ Widodo condemned as barbaricŽ and beyond humanity.Ž They had lived in the leafy Wonorejo Asri residential community since 2010 and had a good income from the fathers business selling herbal medicines, the neighbors said.According to police, on Sunday morning the two sons, aged 16 and 18, rode a motorcycle into a church courtyard and detonated their explosives. Puji Kuswati, the mother, attacked worshippers at another church with her daughters, aged 9 and 12, who police said were all wearing suicide vests. The father, Dita Oepriarto, detonated a car bomb outside a third church. Police initially gave his name as Dita Futri-anto but corrected that based on his national identity card. All six died.Raith Yunanto, who lives two houses from the family, said they were always welcoming to her, a minority Christian. She said she went shopping with Kuswati at the local market and they often exchanged different types of food and fruit.There was nothing strange about the family, they were like other devout Muslim families,Ž she said. Their attitude and manner of dress were just like common Muslim people.ŽIts difficult for us to accept how they can commit such a barbaric act against Christians,Ž Yunanto said. The couple visited me when I gave birth and when my children were sick.ŽShe said she last saw mem-bers of the family when the daughters were riding bicycles with other children in front of her house on Satur-day afternoon, the day before the bombings.The eldest son, she said, was seen coming home from school activities wearing a colourful batik shirt thats symbolic of diversity in Indonesia, a country of more than 260 million with dozens of ethnic groups and languages.Dendri Oemiarti, Oepriartos younger sister, was wracked with grief when she spoke to The Associated Press on Monday and said her elderly parents were in a state of shock.What he has done has hurt us so deeply,Ž she said as tears flowed down her cheeks.What thoughts have influenced him? I do not understand. I do not know what changed my good brother to be so sadistic.Ž Oemiarti said she was very angry when she first heard about the church attacks and that children had been used to carry them out.I fainted when my sister, Dina, told me that the attack was done by our own brother,Ž she said.The last time she met her brother and his family was during Ramadan in 2017. She said their lives were busy and they only met about once a year and didnt talk about religion.Police initially said the family went to Syria to join the Islamic State group but later retracted that statement.Oepriarto, they said, was the leader of the Surabaya cell of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah, an Indonesian network of extremist groups that is affili-ated with IS.According to police, Oepri-arto was friends with the family that carried out Mon-days police headquarters bombing and a third family, three members of which died when homemade bombs exploded in their apartment on Sunday night.The familys nextdoor neighbor, Abi Akbar, said Oepriarto and his sons, Yusuf and Firman, like nearly all Muslim men in the neighbor-hood, usually attended dawn prayers at an unremarkable local mosque.But Akbar, 23, also said he had heard older men in the community comment that Oepriarto wasnt a mainstream Indonesian Muslim and objected to secular rituals such as raising the national flag or singing the Indonesian national anthem.In retrospect, Akbar said, one thing was different at dawn prayers on Sunday. Instead of customarily kissing their fathers hand after prayers, the boys and father hugged for a long time.They hugged like they were going to be separated,Ž Akbar said. But at that time we were not suspicious of anything because they are a family that is well known and normal.ŽJust a few hours later Oepriarto and his family and 12 other people were dead. More than 40 were injured.Kenzi Tapy Gani, a 21-year-old university student who lived near the family, described Oepriatro as a friendly and nice guy.ŽWe really didnt see it coming,Ž he said.The extremist family next doorNeighbors say family that bombed Indonesian churches well o friendlyA Muslim woman weeps during the wake for Sri Pudji Astutik, one of the victims of Sundays church attacks, at a funeral home Monday in Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia. [ACHMAD IBRAHIM/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] NATION & WORLDNeighbors said there were no signs members of the family were planning the acts of violence that President Joko JokowiŽ Widodo condemned as barbaricŽ and beyond humanity.Ž They had lived in the leafy Wonorejo Asri residential community since 2010 and had a good income from the fathers business selling herbal medicines, the neighbors said.

GODSPEAK: Answer: How many more races on 1.5-mile tracks? By that measure, he could reach an even dozen. KENS CALL: The way he toyed with Martin Truex Jr. at the end of Kansas, Im upping all previous suggestions and saying 10.Restrictor plates at Charlotte? GODSPEAK: If this works out, it could be a sneak peek at the near future of Cup Series racing. Hey, it works at Daytona and Talladega. KENS CALL: Well, its only for the All-Star Race. For now, anyway. Itll bunch the cars together, which everyone seems to like. Im done “ ghting it and have fallen into grudging acceptance.RYAN BLANEY VS. KYLE LARSON: Two of NASCARs bright, young, new talents wrecked each other, but Blaney immediately took the blame and Larson gladly pointed the “ nger of blame.

In his previous two matches, Nishikori retired against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in Barcelona and lost to Novak Djokovic in Madrid.Nishikori hit only 18 win-ners to Lopezs 26 but had fewer unforced errors „ 19 to 31. It wasnt (an) easy match,Ž Nishikori said. It was windy. And he used a lot of slice and great serves. ... Luckily I got (the) first set. After that I was more confident and I was play-ing better tennis.ŽLopez argued with the chair umpire after losing a point in which he thought the ball bounced twice before Nishikori hit a half volley. The 24thranked Nishikori will next face third-seeded Grigor Dimitrov.ROMECiao Roberta: Vinci bids tennis a teary goodbyeRoberta Vinci does not want to be remembered solely for beating Serena Williams in the 2015 U.S. Open semifinals, which prevented the American from completing a calen-dar-year Grand Slam.Vinci, who retired after a first-round loss before her home fans at the Italian Open on Monday, was also ranked No. 1 in doubles, completed a career Grand Slam with partner Sara Errani, and helped Italy win four Fed Cups.Its not only Serena,Ž Vinci said. I would appre-ciate it if I were remembered for a bit more of my entire career.Ž Yet the 35-year-old Vinci acknowledged she still looks back at that match against Williams and wonders how she managed it.Ooh, a lot, a lot of times. A lot, a lot. Yes, yes,Ž Vinci said with a laugh. It was an incredible victory. The best victory of course of my life and probably also the (fans) can remember me with Serena, the crowd and everything. It was an incredible day.ŽPARISTsonga withd raws from French Open with injuryJo-Wilfried Tsonga has withdrawn from the French Open because of a left knee injury.The former Australian Open runner-up from France says in a video posted on his Twitter account that he has not recovered following surgery. The 37th-ranked Tsonga has not played since losing in the semifinals at the Open Sud de France in February.The French Open starts on May 27 at Roland Garros. By Ben NuckolsThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Supreme Court struck down a 26-year-old federal ban on sports betting on Monday, allowing states to decide whether they want to allow legal wagers on football, basketball, baseball, hockey and other games. Heres a look at what that means:So, when can i bet on sports?Soon, depending on where you live. Officials in three states „ Dela-ware, Mississippi and New Jersey „ have pledged to start accepting legal bets within weeks. Three others already had laws on the books authorizing sports betting in the event of a favorable Supreme Court decision, although there likely will be more debate about the specifics. More than a dozen other states either have active legislation to authorize sports gambling or have considered it in the past. Expect those discussions to ramp up, along with more aggressive lobbying in those states by sports book operators and the professional leagues. Who will accept bets?It will vary from state to state. Some have authorized commercial casinos to open sports books, while some will offer sports betting prod-ucts through their state lotteries. Aside from the few states that have worked out those details already, lawmakers and regulators will be decid-ing whether to allow bets to be placed at casi-nos, horse racing tracks, off-track betting parlors or even stadiums, and whether to allow online and mobile betting. How will this change the fan experience?Once sports betting becomes more widely legal, fans can expect to have the opportunity to bet on their phones during games, a common practice in countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. Television rat-ings and subscriptions to streaming services could increase because fans are more interested in games that dont involve their hometown teams. And discussion of point spreads, over/unders and prop bets could become more common among broadcasters and journal-ists as they seek to remain relevant to how fans are thinking about sports.Looking at where legal sports betting is headed By Steve MegargeeThe Associated PressThe NFL wants Congress to enact a framework for legal-ized sports betting in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that clears the way for more states to allow sports gambling.Supreme Court justices voted 6-3 on Monday to strike down a 1992 law that barred most state-authorized sports gambling. Before the Supreme Court ruling, Nevada was the only state that allowed people to bet on the results of a single game.Congress has long recognized the potential harms posed by sports betting to the integrity of sporting contests and the public confidence in these events,Ž the NFL said in a statement. Given that history, we intend to call on Congress again, this time to enact a core regulatory framework for legal-ized sports betting.ŽAll the major leagues responded to a ruling that figures to have far-reaching implications throughout the sports world. The NHL noted that today paves the way to an entirely different landscape „ one in which we have not previously operated.ŽNBA Commissioner Adam Silver, a supporter of legalizing sports gambling, said his league would remain active in ongoing discussions with state legislaturesŽ about expanding wagering options.Silver also said the league would like to see a federal framework instead of a state-by-state system. The NBA once opposed expanded sports bet-ting but has long said it supports robust regulation.The NBA and Major League Baseball have argued in recent months for a 1 percent cut of proceeds if legalized sports betting expands across the country, saying part of that money would be needed for additional compliance and enforcement efforts within the game.As each state considers whether to allow sports betting, we will continue to seek the proper protections for our sport, in partnership with other professional sports,Ž Major League Baseball said in a statement.Keith Whyte, the executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling, believes any governmental body and sports league that receives a direct percentage or portion of sports betting revenue must also dedicate funds to prevent and treat gambling problems.Some of that 1 percent of betting fees is going to come from people with uncontrollable gambling problems,Ž Whyte said. We believe by taking a cut of this money, (the leagues would) put themselves in the position of having to do something to reduce those costs. Great profits come with great responsibility.Ž MLB said it would continue to support legislation that cre-ates air-tight coordination and partnerships between the state, the casino operators and the governing bodies in sportsŽ toward protecting the integ-rity of the game. Major League Soccer issued a statement seek-ing similar cooperation.Although Major League Soccer is supportive of todays Supreme Court decision, we also believe that it is critical that state legislatures and other regulatory bodies work closely with the professional sports leagues in the United States to develop a regulatory framework to protect the integrity of each of our respective sports,Ž the MLS said in its statement. We look forward to being a part of that process.ŽPlenty of leagues already have taken steps to make sure its players are educated on the issue.For example, last year the PGA Tour hired Genesis Sports to help with its new Integrity ProgramŽ that began at the start of the year. The pro-gram requires players on all six circuits the PGA Tour manages to take part in an online tutorial that, among other things, illus-trates some of the far-reaching effects of gambling.We believe that regulation is the most effective way of ensuring integrity in competition, protecting consumers, engaging fans and generating revenue for government, operators and leagues,Ž the PGA Tour said in a statement.The Supreme Court ruling will impact college sports as well as the pro leagues. Donald Remy, the NCAAs chief legal officer, said the organization is reviewing the Supreme Courts decision and that we will adjust sports wagering and championship policies to align with the direction from the court.ŽThe NCAA currently doesnt hold NCAA Tournament games or any other NCAA-run events in Nevada because of its legal gambling. Las Vegas is home to the annual Las Vegas Bowl as well as the Pac-12 mens bas-ketball tournament and other tournaments, which arent run by the NCAA itself.The NCAA said 24 percent of NCAA male student-athletes and about 5 percent of female student-athletes in 2016 reported they had wagered on sports for money within the previous year, which would violate NCAA bylaws. Just below 2 percent of the men participating in the 2016 survey met what the NCAA termed as standard diagnostic criteria for problem gambling.Reactions to the Supreme Court ruling across the sports world werent limited to the league offices. The athletes themselves also were wondering about the possible implications of increased legal sports gambling.NASCAR driver Brad Kesel-owski tweeted he was tornŽ on the Supreme Courts decision. Keselowski said it should be great for our sport, but Ive also seen gambling ruin lives.ŽNFL looks to Congress on sports gambling ruling SPORTS TICKER NFL footballs sit on the “ eld during warm ups before an NFL playoff game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jan. 14 in Pittsburgh. The NFL wants Congress to enact a framework for legalized sports betting in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that clears the way for more states to allow gambling. All the major leagues responded to a ruling that “ gures to have farreaching implications throughout the sports world. [DON WRIGHT/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO]

And when he went to prison in 2013 to serve a life sentence, she visited him as often as she could until last year, when she injured her hip, crippling her mobility.That was her baby,Ž said Harris daughter Kathy Downing, referring to the real Bo-D. Thats her baby,Ž she added, nodding to the toy baby doll in Harris arms.Harris also suffers from dementia disease.Dementia is marked by the loss of cognitive functioning „ thinking, remembering, and reasoning „ and behav-ioral abilities to such an extent that it interferes with a persons daily life and activi-ties, according to National Institute on Aging. About 5.5 million Americans have the disease.Doll therapy, which is what Harris receives with the doll Bo-D, is becoming commonplace at nursing homes. The dolls are used as a way to calm residents with dementia and comfort them. The technique has received criticism, a National Public Radio story points out „ some taking the position that it infantilizesŽ seniors. However, the therapy is a way of trying to meet them where they are and communicate with them in a way that makes sense to them,Ž a spokesperson from Alzheim-ers Association stated.May is National Older Americans Month.When my daughter got her that doll, she said Bo-D and started crying,Ž Downing said. The doll helps because she loved Bo-D so much she raised him from a little boy because I worked off shore.ŽThe real Bo-D is 37 years old. He showed up to his grandmothers birthday party in his own capacity through a Mothers Day and birthday letter he sent through the mail.I love you and miss you,Ž Joseph wrote. Good Lords willing, maybe they can bring you to see me. Happy Moth-ers Day and happy birthday. I love you with all my heart.ŽHarris was born in 1921 close to Washington County and was raised picking cotton in Holmes County. She has lived in the area all of her life. She married Oliver M. Holman, who is the father of the late Charles Holman, a former mayor of Graceville.She celebrated her 97th birthday Monday at Wash-ington County Rehabilitation Nursing Center with cake, a balloon, her daughter and Bo-D.ŽCover Bo up mom,Ž Downing told her mom Monday right before the birthday celebration kicked off. Within seconds, Harris gently lifted her blanket just over the dolls shoulders and embraced it a little more, touching her face to its face.She loves her youngins and her grandyoungins and great-greatyoungins,Ž Harris said, tearing up. Shes got a heart bigger than this building and there wasnt nothing she wouldnt do for people.ŽBo-D: Doll therapy makes 97-year-old womans birthday specialSusan Harris celebrates her 97th birthday with her family, including her daughter Kathy Downing and a doll that symbolizes her grandson she raised from a child, nicknamed Bo-D.Ž Pictured from left are Kathy Downing, Susan Harris and Bo-D.Ž [JACQUELINE BOSTICK | THE NEWS] Kathy Downing positions Bo-DŽ to be more comfortable in her mothers arms at Washington County Nursing Rehabilitation on Monday.

** B2 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Alex VeigaThe Associated PressThe major U.S. stock indexes eked out small gains Monday after a late-afternoon pullback weighed on small-company shares.The market had been broadly higher earlier in the day on hopes that trade tensions were easing between the U.S. and China. But much of that rally faded, leaving declin-ers on the New York Stock Exchange out-numbering risers. Gains by health care and energy stocks outweighed losses in real estate companies and other decliners. Casino operators and equipment companies got a boost from a Supreme Court decision that cleared the way for states to legalize sports betting.The S&P 500 index added 2.41 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,730.13. The Dow Jones industrial aver-age climbed 68.24 points, or 0.3 percent, to 24,899.41. The Nasdaq composite rose 8.43 points, or 0.1 percent, to 7,411.32. Small-company stocks fell. The Rus-sell 2000 index lost its early gains, sliding 6.45 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,600.34.The major stock indexes latest gains add to the markets solid run this month. The S&P 500, the benchmark for the broader stock market, had its best weekly gain since early March last week.The indexes got off to a strong start Monday, as investors hoped for reduced trade tensions between the U.S. and China after President Donald Trump tweeted over the weekend that he would help Chinese telecommunications company ZTE get back into business.ŽStocks eke out small gainsBy Paul WisemanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ A long-running dispute between American regulators and Chinese telecom company ZTE may have handed Presi-dent Donald Trump some unexpected leverage in avoiding a trade war with Beijing.Trumps tweet Sunday that he was working with President Xi Jinping of China to put ZTE back into business, fastŽ after U.S. sanctions threatened ZTEs existence and 70,000 Chinese jobs caught many trade-watchers by surprise.Too many jobs in China lost,Ž Trump tweeted. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!ŽThe overture came just as Vice Premier Liu He is flying to Washington for talks aimed at heading off a mutually harmful battle between the worlds two biggest economies and just before U.S. companies plan to plead during three days of hearings for a resolution to the dispute.Trade analysts say it is highly unusual for a presi-dent to intercede in a case brought by the Commerce Department and to mix regulatory sanctions with trade negotiations. But they also note that Trumps offer to rescue ZTE, which makes cellphones and other telecommunications equipment, has the potential to clear the way for progress.Its a way to unlock negotiations,Ž said Wendy Cutler, a former U.S. trade negotiator specializing in Asia and now vice president at the Asia Society Policy Institute.The United States has proposed imposing tariffs on up to $150 billion in Chinese products to punish Beijing for forcing American companies to hand over technology in exchange for access to the Chinese markets. In retaliation, Beijing is threatening tariffs on $50 billion in U.S. products.Trumps tweet creates an atmosphere where theres more hope for reaching an agreement on trade,Ž said David Dollar, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a former official at the World Bank and the U.S. Treasury Department.The United States also needs Chinas support as it prepares for talks with North Korea that are intended to persuade the Pyongyang regime to abandon nuclear weapons.Commerce and ZTE last year settled charges that the Chinese company sold sensitive telecommunications equipment to Iran and North Korea in violation of U.S. sanctions. ZTE agreed to plead guilty and pay about $1 billion in fines.Last month, Commerce accused ZTE of violating the agreement and blocked ZTE from importing American com-ponents for seven years. The department said ZTE had misled regulators: Instead of disciplining all employees involved in the sanctions violations, Commerce said, ZTE paid some of them full bonuses and then lied about it.The seven-year ban was tantamount to a death sentence for ZTE.It was basically going to put them out of business,Ž Dollar said. They rely on American technology.ŽLast week, the company announced that it was halting operations.Early this month, a high-level U.S. delegation „ including Treasury Sec-retary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, top American trade negotiator Robert Lighthizer and White House adviser Peter Navarro „ traveled to Beijing to address the trade dispute. There, they heard an outcry about U.S. regulators putting ZTE out of business.They were a little bit blindsided,Ž said Paul Triolo, a technology spe-cialist at the Eurasia Group consultancy. The Chinese reaction was pretty vociferous. ... The U.S. government shooting down the No. 2 telecommunications supplier in China at this sensitive time „ it didnt look good.ŽNow, analysts see the outlines of a potential deal: In return for Trumps life-line to ZTE, Beijing might agree to buy more U.S. products or take other steps to shrink Americas gaping trade deficit with China „ $337 billion last year.Get it doneBy Elliot SpagatThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Immigration officials have sharply increased audits of companies to verify that their employees are authorized to work in the country, signaling the Trump administrations crackdown on illegal immigration is reaching deeper into the work-place to create a culture of complianceŽ among employers who rely on immigrant labor.Expansive plans also have been drafted for a long-term push to scrutinize employers hiring practices more closely.Under a 1986 federal law, companies must verify their employees are authorized to work in the United States by reviewing their documents and verifying to the government the employees identity and work authorization. If employers are found to hire someone without proper documents, the employers may be subject to administrative fines and, in some cases, criminal prosecution.The recent focus on employers comes after a surge of deportation arrests of workers that started immediately after Trump took office in January 2017. The crack-down is likely to please immigration hawks among Trumps supporters but may alienate industries and companies that rely on immigrant labor.There were 2,282 employer audits opened between Oct. 1 and May 4, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Monday, nearly a 60 percent jump from the 1,360 audits opened between October 2016 and September 2017. Many of those reviews were launched following the January ICE audits and employee interviews at about 100 7-Eleven franchises in 17 states.There were 594 employers arrested on criminal immigration charges from Oct. 1 to May 4, up from 139 during the previous fiscal year, and 610 civil immigration charges during the same period, compared to 172 in the preceding 12-months.Derek Benner, head of ICEs Homeland Security Investigations unit, told The Associated Press that another nationwide wave of audits planned this summer would push the total well overŽ 5,000 by Sept 30. ICE audits peaked at 3,127 in 2013.The agency has developed a plan to open as many as 15,000 audits a year, subject to funding and support for the plan from other areas of the administration, Benner said.The proposal calls for creation of an Employer Compliance Inspection Center to perform employer audits at a single location instead of at regional offices around the country, Benner said. Electronically scanning the documents will help flag suspicious activity, and the most egregious cases will be farmed out to regional offices for more investiga-tion. Audit notices will be served electronically or by certified mail, instead of in person.Immigration crackdown causes audits to surgeTrumps bid to help Chinese rm draws re but raises hopes BUSINESS Chinese men pass by a ZTE building May 8 in Beijing, China. President Donald Trumps weekend social media musings about China injected new uncertainty into the Washingtons punishment of Chinese tech giant ZTE and planned trade talks between the two countries. [NG HAN GUAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]BOSTONEx-aircraft cleaner “ les harassment complaintA 22-year-old former employee of a Logan Airport subcontractor that cleans airliners filed a discrimination complaint Monday alleging she was sexually harassed by a supervisor and unjustly fired when she turned down his unwanted advances.Rosa Morban, who lost her job with Ready-Jet this year, said her supervisor exposed himself to her, made inappropriate com-ments and would try to corner her alone so he could harass her.Speaking in Spanish through an interpreter, Morban said when she tried to speak up about it, another manager refused to take her seriously and joked that she would probably end up marrying her supervisor.

** B4 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Washington County NewsDo you know someone that works away from home? I work in an industry where people usually find themselves working for weeks away from home then taking a few weeks to be home with their families. Its a very common way of life to some people. In fact for several years, we even went on the road with my husband so that every night before my kiddos closed their eyes they could pray with their daddy. Its not an easy life. However, its the very life that puts food on the table and raises up families. Occasionally there are things, situations in my day that bring me pause, and I see Jesus in my day. The mail that comes through the office is much and after they do a mail run, I usually end up with several boxes on a bench in my office. Boxes from online shopping or catalogs, and dont let men lie to you, they shop just as much as women. I have proof, the boxes are stacked high. In the middle of all those shipping boxes was one that stood out like a sore thumb. It carried a hand written label and it was decorated with bright marker pictures and messages on all sides. The messages when the box was rotated made a little cartoon. It was adorable. I didnt get too close because I try to respect peoples privacy but when the worker came to pick up his box, I got to watch. He literally couldnt wait to tear into it. As he opened it, several of his buddies gathered around to see what he got. From vitamins to chocolates to some movies and then hand written letters, his smile got bigger and bigger as his hand reached time and again into the box. It was a never-ending parade of loveliness. This man and his burly oil field worker friends were literally covered in oil and grease but were ooo-ing and ahhhh-ing over colored pictures torn from a coloring book and all the thoughtful touches his family had included in his box from home. I had to look away. Its one of those moments that you dont want to intrude on, the pure joy that came from such a simple thoughtful gesture from his family. Later on though, it kept popping into my head and I remember all the boxes my family and I packed up for our guy when he was active duty. Back before email was so easily available, we still wrote snail mail letters and assembled carefully thought out packages for him. The girls were tiny littles, but they were constantly thinking of things they wanted to send their daddy. Every colored piece of paper, every note from their teachers (good and bad, bless their honest little hearts), we once mailed a half-eaten bag of skittles because we always shareŽ... it wasnt about the cost involved ... it was the time and the thoughts. Those packages would later evolve to include luxury items such as new pillowcases, the extra soft toilet paper and bags of beef jerky ... anything to make his life a little more comfortable as we was away. Its the same concept when you consider that someone spends a major portion of their time separated from their loved ones. Watching the happiness it brings got me to thinking? Have I sent the right cards? Have I took the time to pick up a few cards and pick a few people in my life that I think of often but seldom have time to reach out to? Have I made an effort to send them a note or a card letting them know: Im thinking of you ...  You popped into my head today and it made me smile ...  Im sorry we dont talk as much but I still giggle every time I think of you.Ž I need to send cards. Is there someone in your life that is working away from home? Grab a few things and send them a little package of love, hope and thoughtfulness.Ž Pick up a few cards and drop a line in the mail so that when someone is going through their bills, they find a little jewel.Box someone today K a l y n n B r a z e a l Kalynn Brazeal If you would like to include an event in this list, email information to: news@chipleypaper.com Otter Creek to host Twin Rivers PONCE DE LEON … Otter Creek Methodist Church will host Twin Rivers in concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 19.

WEST OBITUARIESCONTINUED FROM B5 HEALTH By Jill U. AdamsThe Washington PostWalk down the toothpaste aisle at your typical drugstore and youll see a range of products that promise to whiten your teeth. Whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, a whitening gel that you can paint on your teeth with a cotton swab or use in a mouth tray, a two-step daily cleaning and whitening system,Ž and more. I see a lot more attention on pretty smiles,Ž says Clifton Carey, a chemist at the University of Colorados School of Dental Medicine. Tooth whitening, in particular, is a big thing these days. A lot of sellers and a lot of customers.Ž The products at the drugstore all have essentially the same whitening ingredient „ the bleaching agent peroxide. If you go to your dentist for a professional tooth whitening, theyll use a more concentrated peroxide product. With the in-office procedure, you get a lot of whitening very quickly, but it requires expertise,Ž says Matthew Messina, a practicing dentist at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry and a spokesman for the American Dental Association. With such a high-powered bleaching agent, he says, the dentist has to protect the gums.Ž The over-the-counter products are weaker. That means less active whitening but also less risk to the gums, should the whitening agent come in contact. All of the products are safe if used as directed,Ž Messina says. Still, they can increase sensitivity of teeth and they can irritate gum tissue. Anything that doesnt feel right, you should see your dentist.Ž Tooth whitening is best done in a healthy mouth condition,Ž Messina says. Have a thorough exam, make sure your teeth are clean and that plaque and tartar have been removed.Ž Also, be aware that tooth whitening doesnt work on crowns or most fillings. Professional whitening, which will be immediate and last for years, might cost $500 or more and is not generally covered by dental insurance. Products to use at home usually require multiple applications over a week or two, will have a gradual and lesser whitening effect, and will not last as long. Whitening strips can cost as little as $25. The do-it-yourself products can be used as a booster, after a professional treatment, to keep the teeth white,Ž Carey says. Dentists often recommend this.Ž How do these products work? Its a surface-type bleach,Ž Carey says, working on stains that are bonded to tooth enamel. Bleach is a chemical that breaks those bonds,Ž Carey says. The staining compounds might remain, but the bleach turns them clear. The concentrated product that dentists use also dehydrate the tooth somewhat. Thats the immediate color change bleaching plus dehydration,Ž Carey says. As the surface of the tooth rehydrates over the next few weeks, people may notice their teeths whiteness slip back a couple of shades. A quick bit of tooth anatomy: Enamel is the thin hard outer layer of the tooth; dentin is the next layer in and is less dense than enamel. In the middle is the pulp, which is the soft tissue that holds the nerve center. Enamel is what youre bleaching,Ž Carey says. Its really thin near the gum line. If you have receding gums, it exposes your root tissues.Ž Dentists try to avoid applying the concentrated product on or near the dentin. Dentin comes into play for aesthetics as well, because its got a naturally yellowish hue. As people age, their enamel can become thinner, a result of decades of wear and tear. The thinner the enamel, the more likely the yellowish dentin shows through. Thats why older people often have yellowed teeth. Bleaching products wont help in this situation because they dont affect the dentin. There are a few other discolorations that whitening procedures cannot change. If you took tetracycline as a kid, say for an ear infection, you might have antibiotic staining of the teeth. Or if your teeth suffered trauma when you were young and your enamel was still forming, whitening wont work. Dentists refer to these discolorations as intrinsic stains. If you spend a little time searching the Web, youll find plenty of ideas about natural methods of tooth whitening. Use lemon juice or apple cider vinegar as a mouthwash? Scrub your teeth with an activated charcoal product? Messina says those techniques come with risks. The acid of lemon juice can erode the enamel on your teeth, and charcoal is an abrasive that can wear it away. Your teeth will be whiter initially, but as the enamel wears away, youll see more dentin,Ž Messina says. That yellowish color will show through.Ž Can you prevent your teeth from becoming stained in the first place? Good practices mean avoiding staining substances. The most egregious are red wine, coffee and tobacco residue. Tooth whiteners have several pros and consBy Mayo Clinic News Network When you have pain, theres nothing you want more than relief „ right now. For many people, that means reaching for the bottle of pain relievers in the medicine cabinet. Before treating pain yourself, however, you should understand where the pain is coming from. Some sources of pain are easier to decipher: You have a tension headache after a long day at your computer, or back pain after an afternoon of raking the yard or joint pain from arthritis. Other sources of pain are not as evident, especially when youre experiencing the pain for the first time, such as knee or hip pain when you are out for a walk, or when the pain lasts longer than usual, such as a stiff neck or lower back pain that doesnt subside. In addition to overthe-counter pain relievers, several simple lifestyle approaches also can be effective. Over-the-counter medications Youll find a large selection of pain relievers at your local store. These medications „ also called analgesics „ control pain by interfering with the way pain messages are developed, transmitted or interpreted. Over-the-counter pain medications can be effective at relieving many types of mild to moderate pain. There are two types of pain relievers: € Oral pain relievers That bottle of pain-relieving pills in your medicine cabinet likely contains aspirin, ibuprofen (e.g., Advil and Motrin IB) or naproxen sodium (e.g., Aleve). These medications are most effective for mild to moderate pain thats accompanied by swelling and inflammation, such as arthritis, sprains and strains. However, these types of medications can have serious side effects, including nausea, stomach pain, or stomach bleeding and ulcers. Large doses also can lead to kidney problems and high blood pressure. These risks are higher for older people, especially those over 75. Acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol) is another commonly used pain reliever. € Topical pain relievers Topical analgesics are creams, gels, sprays and patches that are applied to the skin at the area where you feel pain, such as on painful joints or strained muscles. Topical pain relievers, such as diclofenac (e.g., Voltaren and Solaraze) and salicylates (e.g., Bengay and Icy Hot) can reduce mild to moderate pain without serious side effects, in part because they are applied locally instead of being circulated through the body. They often are recommended for older people who have a greater risk of side effects from oral pain relievers. Applying heat and cold Sometimes relief can be a frozen bag of peas or a hot bath. This is because applying heat and cold often can ease joint pain, back strains, neck pain and other types of pain. Heres how these methods work: € Cold numbs pain by causing blood vessels to constrict, which reduces swelling. Thats why, when you experience an injury „ whether its a bee sting or a sprained ankle „ icing is often a good first choice. You can use an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables, or you can submerge the affected area in a container of ice water. € Heat, on the other hand, is a muscle relaxer. Heat loosens tense muscles, which relieves pain. Heat also increases blood flow to an injury, which promotes healing. Sources of heat can be a heating pad or a warm bath. You may find that cold or heat provides more relief. Or you can alternate the two, ending with the cold treatment. Simply applying heat or cold often doesnt completely resolve pain. Its more likely to lessen its severity and reduce inflammation. But, in many cases, a heating pad or ice pack can be applied in addition to other pain treatments, such as analgesics, to increase the chances of relief.Home remedies: Self-care approaches to treating painBefore treating pain yourself, you should understand where it is coming from. [DREAMSTIME] By Carolee WalkerThe Washington PostSometimes it seems that all I hear about is the magic of high intensity interval training (HITT). This protocol alternates short periods of intense exercise with longer periods of moderate recovery periods (think sprinting 30 seconds, then walking or jogging at an easy pace for one minute, and repeating for about 20 minutes total) and promises results in as little time as possible. But the concept can be daunting for anyone who is just starting a workout program, recovering from an injury or surgery, or packing a little more weight than ideal. So Im here to preach the gospel of LISS: Low intensity steady state. LISS exercise is any repetitive motion for 30 to 45 minutes at 50 to 60 percent of your maximum heart rate (MHR), according to sports medicine specialist and physical therapist Kevin McGuinness, who practices at Washington Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Typically, this refers to such activities as walking, swimming, or even jogging or biking at an easy pace. LISS is any activity that gets your heart rate up just a little bit and for a longer period of time,Ž McGuinness says. If it sounds familiar, thats not surprising: Before the recent popularity of HIIT, McGuinness says, low intensity exercise was simply called cardio.Ž McGuinness says in addition to improving your mood and cognition and helping you control your blood sugar, LISS is one of the best ways to maintain a level of fitness.Ž Assuming your physician has approved your fitness plan, heres how to practice LISS exercise. Calculate your maximum heart rate (MHR) by subtracting your age from the number 220. You dont need HIIT to get t; try this instead
