RobinsonThe News | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY … The Washing-ton County Board of County Commissioners are taking advantage of a contingency clawback provision to purchase back one of the most marketable tracts of commer-cial property in the county.Attorney Matt Fuqua advised commissioners at their workshop on May 16 that negotiations for the land had concluded and the agreed upon price is set at $750,000.The approximately 70-acre site is located north of High-way 90 at the intersection of Highway 273 and North Boulevard in Chipley known as the Washington County Industrial Park.The buy back comes years after Project Pipe failed to deliver on its promise to use $12.75 million in capital investment to construct a full-service manufacturing site for large concrete pipe and box culverts and bring more than 150 jobs with an estimated $5.1 million annual payroll to the county. Additional monies were also proposed to build a rail spur and industrial-grade road.The purchase of the land is a boon for the county which will decide either to flip it or find a warehouse-type company to come in, make use of the land and help strengthen economic development in the county.Washington County Economic Development Council Chair Ted Everett says once the site is back under the countys ownership, it will be ready to market.(The site) has new water lines, a new road, natural gas, water, and sewer infrastructure, and two utility companies ready to serve it,Ž said Everett.The county is looking at funding sources to purchase the land in order tonot incur any more debt.County Administrator Jeff Massey believes the county is moving in the right direction and is looking towards a bright future for the county.The key is that we are being proactive and not reactive,Ž said Massey. Good things are coming to Washington County.ŽBOCC to purchase back industrial parkMassey Everett By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY „ The Washington County Tourist Development Council is looking to public safety offi-cers to assist with organizing a large group of baseball players."Have them stationed in the two hotels during break-fast time, so if the staff of the hotel sees that there's kids or family members there that shouldn't be, the public safety officer can step in," TDC Director Heather Lopez said following Monday's TDC workshop and regular meeting.The solution comes after the 2014 Dixie Pre-Majors World Series experience, when some players sought after warm breakfast and cooling pools at hotels they were not lodging in. The TDC had spread the teams out across five hotels, some had the desired amenities and accommodations, while others didn't.For the 2018 series, 60 rooms have been reserved and split between Comfort Inn & Suites and Quality Inn."We decided what we would do is take all the teams and coaches and put them in the hotels that have the hot breakfast and the pools „ that way we wouldn't have to worry about that," Lopez said.TDC seeks public safety o cers for World Series2018 Dixie Pre-Majors World Series will be held July 28 to Aug. 1.By Jim Saunders News Service Florida TALLAHASSEE „ In a major move in the states utility industry, the parent company of Florida Power & Light said Monday it will buy Northwest Floridas Gulf Power as part of a $6.475 bil-lion deal.NextEra Energy Inc. plans to buy Gulf Power, the Florida City Gas natural-gas com-pany and ownership interests in two power plants from The Southern Company.

PRODUCEFrom Page A1 By Suzie SchottelkotteGatehouse Media FloridaWINTER HAVEN, Fla. „ In light of Fridays school shooting in Texas, Polk Cou nty Sheriff Grady Judd announced Friday that law enforce-ment officers will be assigned this week to the 111 charter and public schools countywide that currently dont have full-time school resource officers.The officers will remain on campus through Thursday, which is the last day of school for Polk County students, he said.At the same time, Polk Schools Superintendent Jacqueline Byrd announced the district is banning backpacks in Polk County schools for the remainder of the school year.Judd said the sheriffs office and police depart-ments across the county are altering work sched-ules to ensure that all the schools are protected.What we want to do is make sure that during these last three and a half days that our students can focus on school, fin-ishing their final exams and getting ready for an awesome, awesome summer,Ž Judd said during a news conference Friday afternoon.What we want to make sure is that we clearly send a message, whether its adults that make any kind of threat, or students or kids that make any kind of threats toward the schools during this next three and a half days, they will be investi-gated and arrested,Ž Judd said. If youre a juvenile, there wont be any of this diversion business. Youre going to be arrested, taken to the JAC (Juvenile Assessment Center) and locked up.ŽByrd said during the news conference that the school district intends to ensure students will be safe for this last week of school.Were doing every-thing possible, parents, I assure you, to make sure that when youre dropping children off or you send them to us, theyre going to be safe. Thats why, yes, I have banned backpacks „ to help us, as much as possible, make sure nothing is coming into the schools, by any means.ŽStudents will be permitted to carry lunch boxes and bags no larger than a small purse.Haines City Police Chief Jim Elensky said his department, too, will continue to provide the law enforcement presence that has been there since the February shootings at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Flor-ida, which left 17 dead.There will be law enforcement on the ground each and every day to ensure the safety of our kids,Ž he said during the news conference.Assistant Chief Ruben Garcia said Lakeland Police will have all the citys campuses covered.We make a plea to the teachers and the parents to keep a sharp eye out for anything that looks out of the ordinary and to let us know as soon as possible,Ž he said. Judd said departments are having to juggle per-sonnel to ensure that all the schools are covered each day next week, but all departments have expressed a willingness to do that. He said the staffing will be done without reducing patrols in the respective cities or unincorporated Polk County.Fla. school district bans backpacks, gets police presence for rest of year Polk County School District Superintendent Jacqueline Byrd, right, stands next to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd as they announce a program that will bring armed safety of“ cers to all county schools during a press conference April 12 at the Sheriffs Operation Center in Winter Haven, Fla. [GATEHOUSE MEDIA FLORIDA] Gatehouse Media FloridaGULF BREEZE, Fla. „ A man was arrested Thursday night for allegedly walking naked through a residential neighborhood in the rain with a bottle of oil, according to the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Office.At approximately 8:30 p.m. Thursday, deputies were dispatched to a home on Woodlawn Way in reference to a naked man walking near a residents front door. While investigating the report, another resident called reporting observing the naked male, who was reportedly aroused, standing in their drive-way in heavy rain, holding a plastic bottle. The bottle contained cooking oil, according to his arrest report.When a deputy approached the man, he ran around a truck in the driveway until the deputy caught up and took the bottle. While attempting to handcuff the man, he slipped away and began to run.Ignoring commands to stop, the man was tased by the deputy and fell on his back, the report said.The man reportedly told deputies that he lives in the neighborhood and that he receives sexual grati-fication by touching his penis and walking naked in the rain,Ž according to the arrest report.He also stated he car-ries around the cooking oil because he likes to rub it on his legs. He said he has previously walked naked around his neighborhood at least once before but prefers to walk naked on the beach, especially Pen-sacola Beach and Navarre Beach.He said hed actually been walking around naked for an hour and a half and that his stroll included a visit to Wood-lawn Beach Middle School.The man was taken to the Santa Rosa County Jail on charges of loitering and prowling, lewd and lascivious behavior, resisting an officer with-out violence and exposure of sexual organs, all misdemeanors.

And thats only fitting, because the State of the SouthŽ dossier by MDC, a North Carolina-based nonprofit, is like reading an extensive scouting report on a football team. The areas of strength are noted: € The South is more racially and ethnically diverse than ever before in history, and has shifted from a biracial to a multi-ethnic region.Ž €The South has been able to reinvent itself as a region with hubs of excellence and innovation in medicine, health and science, providing the benefits of modern medicine.Ž €The South has more affluence, a more diverse economy with a potent corporate sector, a stronger middle class (blacks and Latinos as well as whites) ... than it did 50 years ago.Ž €Major Southern cities Charleston, South Carolina, Biloxi, Mississippi,and New Orleans have all largely recoveredŽ from massive weather-related devastation during the last 15 years; meanwhile, Houston has made strides rebuilding after Hurricane Harvey last fall. But just as a football scouting report also focuses on a teams weaknesses, State of the SouthŽ identifies the regions vulnerabilities, too. And this one clearly stands out in the MDC report: Most Southern states still lag the national average in K-12 achievement. ...Ž Ignoring it could have stark consequence for the South: (The) pattern of increasing divestment in public institutions could affect long-term upward economic mobility prospects in the region.Ž This is no trivial area of vulnerability, but its clear how we in the South should be addressing it: € Southern states „ including Florida „ must make investing in education an equally high priority for all students, instead of pitting public schools against charters, urban districts vs. rural ones, etc., in some Hunger Games-style survival of the fittestŽ battle for funding and resources. € As the State of the SouthŽ report suggests, our region will need the talents of all of our residents to achieve sustainable prosperity. That means all Southern states have to provide levels of funding that will enable all Southern students to flourish. €Stop rewarding the buffoonish antiintellectualism embraced by many of our lawmakers and power brokers to justify starving educational systems of needed money. They justify it by throwing around pandering words and phrases like elitist,Ž snowflakes,Ž failing urban schools,Ž so-called expertsŽ and powerful teachers unions.Ž And they get away with it because we let them. Clearly, thats a big reason why there isnt a single state in the South where native residents have as many bachelors degrees as fellow residents who were born elsewhere. If we want tomorrows South to keep moving the chains and putting up the points, we need to demand that our leaders make education a bigger part of the playbook. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Florida Times-Union, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Make education a bigger priorityANOTHER VIEW For a man who likes to brag about what a big builder he is, President Donald Trump spends a lot of time burning stuff down. From his pursuit of protectionist tariffs and withdrawal from the Paris climate accords, to his routine attacks on the norms of a liberal democracy, the developer from Queens has taken a wrecking ball to the United States place in the world, isolating us on the world stage, and marginalizing our moral voice. Even his cherished wall, the one he promised the United States would build and that someone else the American taxpayer, as it turns out would pay for, remains frustratingly out of his grasp. So it wasnt a surprise Tuesday to find that Trump had taken a torch to the Iran nuclear deal, unraveling the signature foreign policy achievement of former President Barack Obama, and further straining relations with western European allies who had passionately lobbied the White House to stay in it. Writing in Slate, Fred Kaplan said Trump, driven either by rank ignorance, bald-faced malice, or some combination of the two, had dismantled the most significant arms-control deal in modern history. Even worse, the administration premised its argument for withdrawal on at least two fraudulent claims. First, that Iran is cheating on the deal. Theres no evidence to support that. If anything, Iran was complying with the terms of the agreement and, as Vox reports, it was giving inspectors the room they needed to do their jobs. Second, Trump claimed the agreement required the United States to payŽ Iran $100 billion. Nope. The United States froze that amount in Iranian assets, and the deal was conditional on returning them. Thats the carrot in this carrot-and-stick arrangement. Trumps move to kill the deal came despite the pleadings of French President Emmanuel Macron, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Defense Secretary James Mattis, dozens of past and former diplomats, and even House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, who no one would confuse for a dove, Kaplan noted. Right on schedule, Iranian officials announced that theyd negotiate with European leaders, the Chinese and Vladimir Putins Russia about staying in the deal. As was the case with Trumps announcement of the withdrawal from Syria, he opened another power vacuum that Americas geopolitical rivals will be only too happy to fill. On its face, Trumps announcement appeared to be less about securing any long-term foreign policy goal than it was about dominating the news cycle, proving to his base that he could deliver on campaign promise, and perhaps most importantly, sticking a finger in Obamas eye. In a statement, Obama called the withdrawal a serious mistake.Ž Walking away from the [agreement] turns our back on Americas closest allies, and an agreement that our countrys leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated,Ž Obama said. In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one Administration to the next. But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding Americas credibility, and puts us at odds with the worlds major powers.ŽOPPOSING VIEWS For a Builder, Trump Likes Wrecking Stu J o h n L M i c e k John L. Micek Donald Trumps many enemies are becoming more and more frustrated. A year into Robert Muellers great Russian fishing expedition, the president they desperately want to impeach is still in office. The liberal media and Democrats have spent a year beating Mr. Trump over the head with whatever they or Muellers lawyers could find, but the presidents popularity has only grown and he keeps winning. The anti-Trumpers desperate hatred was exposed this week when North Korea started making noises that it might cancel the summit with the United States. You remember North Korea? For decades American presidents and statesmen have been trying to get it to stop its nuclear missile program and behave like a civilized nation inside and outside its barbed wire fences. Our polite diplomatic efforts to tame the communist dictatorship produced a series of false hopes and flops. Nothing improved. In fact, thanks to a series of bad deals made in the Clinton and Obama years, North Korea only got more brazen and its military more frightening. But then along came President Trump. His Not Made in D.C.Ž brand of tough diplomacy created a sudden and seemingly miraculous breakthrough. We dont know yet if Trump will resolve the North Korean problem, but we know what the left and their pals in the liberal media would like to see another failure. They hate President Trump so much they were almost gleeful this week when they heard North Korea may renege on the summit meeting. Theyd be happy to see North Korea cancel because they dont want Trump ever to succeed with anything at home or overseas. For them, hating President Trump trumps putting America first. Its a similar story with the Trump administration moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. For decades Democrat and Republican presidents and congressional candidates have been promising to do it during elections, that is, when they knew itd get them votes and campaign contributions. Once they were elected, of course, nothing happened. It was all talk. It was just a cynical and cheap campaign slogan like the Republicans promises to repeal and replace Obamacare. But in 2016 when candidate Trump promised hed put the embassy in Jerusalem, he wasnt lying. President Trump kept his promise this week. And how did the left and the liberal establishment media react? They screamed bloody murder that it was a dangerous and reckless thing to do that will only create violence in Gaza and hurt the chances for peace in the Middle East.They Hate, Trump Wins Michael Reagan

** A8 Wednesday, May 23, 2018 | Washington County News LOCAL & STATEThe Sheriffs Office again responded to the theft of the van, this time gaining an admission from two of the boys that they had taken the van from school property and drove down several dirt roads until stopping at a JJ Whitaker residence on May 16.The three juveniles allegedly entered the residence and took and unknown amount of paint, which they poured into the van before setting it on fire, according to the news release.The teens were arrested and charged with arson, grand theft, multiple counts of burglary, and criminal mischief. They have been transported to a juvenile detention facility but are expected to face the charges as adults.Two of the juveniles were also previously arrested and transported to a juvenile detention facility in Panama City after being charged in connection with the April 27 burglary of Bethlehem School. The third juvenile will additionally be charged in connection with that same burglary, according to the Holmes County Sheriffs Office. JUVENILESFrom Page A5 and neighbors and serving our communities in Northwest Florida,Ž he later added in a statement Monday.The deal would expand NextEra Energys already-massive footprint in the state. Its Florida Power & Light subsidiary is by far the largest electric utility in Florida, serving nearly 5 million customers. Gulf Power, with about 450,000 customers in eight counties, is the largest utility in the Panhandle.Florida City Gas has about 110,000 residential and commercial natural-gas customers in Miami-Dade, Brevard, St. Lucie and Indian River counties. NextEra said it will buy a 100 percent ownership interest in a power plant near Cocoa known as Plant Oleander, which has contracts to sell electricity to the Florida Municipal Power Agency and Seminole Electric Cooperative. It also will buy a 65 percent stake in a generating unit, known as Stanton A, at the Stanton Energy Center complex near Orlando. The unit is jointly owned by The Southern Company, the Orlando Utilities Commission, the Kissimmee Utility Authority and the Florida Municipal Power Agency, according to information on The Southern Company website."These transactions will provide meaningful benefits for the state of Florida, and Gulf Power and Florida City Gas cus-tomers, as well as NextEra Energy shareholders,Ž Jim Robo, chairman and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy, said in a prepared statement. Importantly, these transactions are consistent with our long-standing, disciplined approach of maintaining the strength of our balance sheet and credit ratings, both of which are among the strongest in the industry.ŽNextEra Energy plans to finance the deal through the issuance of new debt, according to the announcement. The $6.475 billion total includes NextEra Energy assuming $1.4 billion of Gulf Power debt.Subsidiaries of The Southern Company, which is based in Atlanta, operate in numerous states. In addition to Gulf Power, the subsidiaries include Alabama Power, Georgia Power and Mississippi Power. The Florida Public Ser-vice Commission last year approved a settlement agreement that set base rates for Gulf Power.In the announcement, NextEra Energy said that with the addition of Gulf Power, Florida City Gas and the power plants, the Juno Beach-based com-pany will be even better positioned to generate long-term shareholder value through a more robust financial profile, greater scale and an expanded platform for growth.ŽBut the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which frequently intervenes in utility cases in Florida, expressed concern Monday about the purchase."While Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is still reviewing this deal, it raises concerns that any one monopoly utility would control such a significant percentage of Floridas energy market," the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy said in a prepared statemet. "Such consolidation of control may limit competition at a time when we need more and not less." The News Jacqueline Bostick contributed to this report. GULFFrom Page A1By Katie Landeck The News Herald | 522-5114 @PCNHKatieL klandeck@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ As K-9 units swept through the Panama City Mall look-ing for what would turn out to be a non-existent bomb, several dozen employees from various stores waited in patches of shade at the perimeter of the parking lot.They told us to get the hell out,Ž said Isaac Loberger, an employee at Bennigans. I hope they let us in soon, I left sandwich stuff on the counter.ŽAll my stuff is in there. I dont even have my cell phone,Ž added co-worker Ashley Wilhite. I dont even think there is a bomb.ŽPanama City Police later arrested Nicholas White-head, 31, in connection with the threat and charged him with making a hoax bomb threat, a second degree felony. At 10:40 a.m., an anonymous threat was called into the Bay County Emergency Operations Center about a bomb located in the Panama City Mall. The threat was vague, triggering a massive multi-agency search as law enforcement officials combed through one of the largest public buildings in the city.The search „ which was run by Panama City Police Department and included the Florida Highway Patrol, Bay County Sheriff's Department, Bay County EMS and Panama City Fire Department „ took over two hours. The entire mall parking lot, as well as Red Lobster and Best Buy, was cordoned off by police, but some employees worried about being late for work kept slipping in through the nearby Starbucks park-ing lot.Most were shocked when they learned was going on. While they found it hard to believe there was a bomb in the mall, many were unsettled.This happens every-where else, but you never expect it to happen here,Ž said Katlyn Davis, an employee at Dillards.I dont want to go in later,Ž said Autumn Barlow. What if its in the one shoebox they didnt search?Ž While the search was going on, at a separate scene, police were work-ing a different angle.All calls to 911 are tracked by GPS, and the anonymous call traced back to 804 Detroit Avenue in Springfield, where officers located Whitehead.According to the affidavit, officers were able to ascertain that Whiteheads phone was the one used to call 911, and arrested him. Police said Whitehead has not been cooperatingŽ or said why he allegedly called in the hoax. Springfield Police helped with White-heads arrest.Whitehead has an active case in court for dealing drugs, and has been found guilty of misdemeanors in the past. This is not the first time an explosive device, or the threat of one, has emptied the mall. In 1996, a pipe bomb was found in the JC Penny parking lot, zipped into a notebook. Two teenagers were later charged in connection and the device safely deto-nated in the woods.Anyone having infor-mation in the current case is urged to call the Panama City Police Department at 850-872-3100, or they can report their tips anony-mously to Crime Stoppers at 850-785TIPS.One arrested in connection to Panama City Mall bomb threatEmployees huddled under the shade to escape the 80-degree heat while waiting for law enforcement to clear the Panama City Mall of a bomb threat Sunday.

[TYLER EVERT/ ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Josh Lederman and Matthew LeeThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration on Monday demanded that Iran make wholesale changes in its military and regional policies or face the strongest sanctions in history,Ž as it sought to turn up heat on Tehran after Presi-dent Donald Trumps decision to withdraw from a landmark nuclear deal.In speech that called Iran out for a wide range of malign activitiesŽ apart from its nuclear program, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called for the negotiation of a new deal that would go far beyond the single focus of the 2015 agree-ment and would have the status of a formal treaty. The 2015 deal concluded under the Obama administration dealt only with the nuclear program and was not a treaty but rather a U.N.-endorsed executive agreement between the parties.Unless such a treaty can be reached, Pompeo warned that Iran would face tough sanctions that would leave it battling to keep its economy alive.Ž But he laid out no strategy for convincing Iran, the other participants in the original deal „ Britain, China, France, Ger-many, Russia and the European Union „ or others to open such a negotiation.These will end up being the strongest sanctions in history by the time we are complete,Ž Pompeo said at the conserva-tive Heritage Foundation in his first major policy speech since taking over as top diplomat.Pompeo vowed Trumps approach would ensure Iran would never develop a nuclear weapon. A new pact should require that Iran stop enrichment of uranium, which was allowed within strict limitations under the previous deal. Iran would also have to walk away from core pillars of its foreign policy, including its involve-ment in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Afghanistan, he said.This list may seem long to some, but it is simply a reflection of the massive scope of Iranian malign behavior,Ž Pompeo said. America did not create this need for changed behavior. Iran did.ŽIn response, Iranian Presi-dent Hassan Rouhani described Pompeos speech as unaccept-able and took issue with the fact that the secretary of state previously led the CIA, long demonized in Iran for its role in a 1953 coup.A guy who had been active in an espionage center for years now wants to make a decision for Iran and other countries from the position of a foreign minister. It is not acceptable under any circumstance,Ž Rouhani said to a group of university teachers in Tehran. Who are you to make a deci-sion for Iran and the world and to tell Iran what to do and what not to do in the nuclear field?ŽPompeo did offer Iran a series of dramatic potential U.S. concessions if it agrees to make major changes.Ž Under a new agreement, the U.S. would be willing to lift all sanctions, restore full diplomatic and commercial ties with Iran and even sup-port the modernization of its economy, Pompeo said.It is Americas hope that our labors toward peace and security will bear fruit for the long-suffering people of Iran,Ž Pompeo said.Still, Pompeos list of 12 requirements included many that Iran is highly unlikely to consider. He said Iran must allow nuclear inspectors unqualified access to all sites throughout the country,Ž Pompeo said, alluding to military sites that were off-limits under the 2015 deal except under specific circumstances. To that end, he also said Iran must declare all previous efforts to build a nuclear weapon, reopening an issue that the U.N.s International Atomic Energy Agency has already deemed a closed matter.Pompeo also demanded that Iran cease from a range of activities throughout the Middle East that have long drawn the ire of the U.S. and its allies. He said Iran must end support for Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen, withdraw all forcesŽ from Syria, halt support for its ally Hezbollah and stop threatening Israel. Iran must also release all U.S. citizensŽ missing in Iran or being held on spurious charges,Ž he said.Taken together, the demands would require a complete transformation by Irans government, and they hardened the perception that the administration is really seek-ing regime change. A longtime Iran hawk, Pompeo has spoken positively about regime change in the past, but in his confirmation hearing last month he sought to soften that stance.Laying out Trumps new approach Monday, Pompeo said he couldnt put a time-line on how long the strategy might take.US demands changes in Iran policies NATION & WORLDSecretary of State Pompeo threatens the strongest sanctions in history if Iran does not stop malign activitiesSecretary of State Mike Pompeo speaks Monday at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative public policy think tank, in Washington. Pompeo issued a steep list of demands Monday that he said should be included in a nuclear treaty with Iran to replace the Obama-era deal, threatening the strongest sanctions in historyŽ if Iran doesnt change course.

FOODBy Charlene PetersMore Content NowThe famed Barossa Valley wine region of Australia is about an hours drive from the exotic and bustling city of Adelaide. As expected, I was captivated by the beauty of rolling hills covered in rows of green and yellowing grape leaves, telltale colors to signal the end of harvest season. But what I didnt expect was to see a kangaroo hopping through the vineyard at St. Hugo winery. Wow. Kangaroo-spotting was not on my itinerary for another three days, pending a half-hour flight over to Kangaroo Island. Yet, there one was, right before my eyes. Thats Australia. Now, on to Kangaroo Island. In 1802, British explorer Matthew Flinders landed on this island 70 miles southwest of Adelaide and named it for its primary inhabitants, kangaroos. This third-largest island off the Australian coast attracted European seal hunters and whalers in the early 19th century. Back on land, these seamen were on a mission to prevent the extinction of an Australian icon, the koala. They introduced 18 koalas to the island and planted 100 species of eucalyptus trees. Today, the koala population is a robust 30,000, and the fuzzy creatures choose to dine on only five types of eucalyptus. I became so obsessed with koala-spotting that I almost forgot about seeing kangaroos, but that would soon change. On this island, kangaroos far outnumber the human population of 4,500. This place is almost a zoo without cages. I soon arrived at the remote and ultra-luxurious Southern Ocean Lod ge, 21 modern rooms located in the bushŽ and on the waters edge where the South Pacific and Indian oceans meet, with views (and amenities) to die for. I enjoyed a lunch of crisped local garfish with a caper and dill emulsion, accompanied by fried potatoes, while sipping a crisp Coriole Chenin Blanc from the McLaren Vale wine region. As a post-lunch workout, I signed up for the hotels afternoon exploration of the cliffs overlooking the beach. Spectacular crashing waves illustrate why the island has a long history of shipwrecks on this spot. I also got a lesson on bush plants surrounding and leading to the hotels curved, panoramic lobby. I was fascinated with samphire, or sea bean, which grows as beaded shoots in shades of green, purple and red. This salty succulent is prized by southern Australian chefs, who add it as a topping to many dishes.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, May 23, 2018 A13IN BRIEFGoodell details NFLs stance on sports gamblingNFL commissioner Roger Goodell says Con-gress should enact uniform standards for any states that plan to legislate sports betting. Goodell detailed the leagues position in a statement Monday that reiterated the NFLs stance that legalized sports gam-bling in the United States should be governed by federal law rather than state law. The Supreme Court ruled last week to strike down a 1992 law that barred most state-autho-rized sports gambling.In suggesting four core principles that should be maintained for any form of legalized sports bet-ting, Goodell stressed that leagues can protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it.Ž He also said guidelines must provide substantial consumer protections; ensure fans will have access to official, reliable league data; and that law enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools neces-sary to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here at home and abroad.Ž BATON ROUGE, LA.LSU lands former Ohio State QB as grad transferFormer Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow is transferring to LSU, where he will be eligible to play immediately and compete for the Tigers starting job.LSU on Monday announced the addition of Burrow, who recently graduated from Ohio State and has two years of eligi-bility r emaining. He spent three seasons at Ohio State but was never able to work his way to the top of a crowded depth chart that included J.T. Barrett over the last four seasons.Burrow, who went to high school in Athens, Ohio, redshirted in 2015 and then spent two seasons as a reserve. His 2017 season was disrupted by an injury to his throwing hand. In 10 games at Ohio State, he was 29 for 39 for 287 yards passing, with two touchdowns. WASHINGTONUSOC hires FBI executive as its safety directorThe U.S. Olympic Committee hired an FBI executive as senior director of athlete safety, marking its latest effort to strengthen sex-abuse policies that are being rewritten in the wake of cases involving Olympic athletes. Wendy Guthrie comes to the USOC after spending the past six years as senior executive of human resources at the FBI. Before that, she held high-ranking jobs at the Northwest and West Coast Conferences in college sports. By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressBrian Bowen had the opportunity to spend a couple of days last week playing in real basketball games, replete with score-boards and referees and with every courtside seat filled. Its unclear when hell be able to do that again.Bowen might have been one of the most talked-about players in NCAA basketball over the last year, without so much as playing a single second of a game. Hes the one-time Lou-isville commit who left amid massive scandal „ the federal probe into the college game, including allegations that his father took money during the recruiting process „ and subsequently transferred to South Carolina.But the NCAA hasnt cleared him yet. It might not. So hes taking a long look at the NBA, and Bowens invitation to the draft combine last week was a fact-finding mission that will help him decide whether to formally turn pro or return to school with hopes that his collegiate eligibility will be restored so he can play with the Gamecocks.Its the biggest thing Ive ever been through in my life,Ž Bowen said after one of his 5-on-5 games at the combine. They took the game away from me, a game I truly love. It made me realize how much passion and love I do have for the game. I put that into my workouts every day and I go as hard as I can.ŽThe 6-foot-7 Bowen of Saginaw, Michigan has until the end of the month to decide whether to keep his name in the draft or not. The draft itself is June 21. And theres been no indication if the NCAA will offer him any clarity before he has not make his stay-or-go choice.My lawyer and the school are dealing with it,Ž Bowen said.His is a most curi-ous case, even in a draft that has a handful of players who have been tainted on some level by the ongoing mess that reverberated through the college game last season and probably will continue having a ripple effect for the foreseeable future.After a year lost, Bowen seeks answers Vegas Golden Knights James Neal (18), Deryk Engelland (5), goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (29) and the rest of the team celebrate after defeating the Winnipeg Jets during NHL Western Conference Finals, game 5, on Sunday in Winnipeg. [PHOTOS BY TREVOR HAGAN/THE CANADIAN PRESS VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By W.G. RamirezThe Associated PressLAS VEGAS „ Welcome to Impossible.Those words have been pro-jected onto the ice in big, bold letters at T-Mobile Arena before each game during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Well, the Vegas Golden Knights are turning impossible into possible.The stunningly successful expansion squad is headed to the Stanley Cup Final after beating the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Sunday to win the Western Conference final series in five games.I remember eight months ago, when we won against Dallas (in the season opener), we had that unbelievable feeling,Ž Vegas center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare said. Doesnt feel like were satis-fied. Its a good feeling when you know the guys are excited for the next one.ŽThe Golden Knights are the third franchise in NHL history to clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season, joining the Toronto Arenas in 1918 in the leagues early days, and St. Louis Blues in 1968, when all six expansion teams were in the same division and one of them had to make the final round.Vegas will play either Tampa Bay or Washington on hockeys biggest stage. The Lightning lead the Eastern Conference final 3-2, but the Capitals host Game 6 on Monday night.Either way, were not going to be favorites,Ž said Jonathan Marchessault, who leads Vegas with 18 points in the postsea-son. Thats been the case all year. Tampa has been the best team all year. Washington, (theyre) playing great hockey right now. Either way, were not going to be favorites, and thats fine with us. We went all year like that and were going to keep going.ŽHence, The Golden MisfitsŽ tag. Nobody could have scripted Vegas, a 500-1 long shot at the start of the season, making the playoffs „ let alone earning a shot at Lord Stanleys Cup.But the Golden Knights, who finished fifth in the league during the regular season, just knocked off the No. 2 team in the regular season in Winnipeg, which in the conference semifinals knocked off the No. 1 team in the regular season, Nashville.Vegas clinched all three of its Western Conference series on the road, becoming the seventh team in NHL history to accom-plish such a feat.Everybody on this team has something to prove,Ž said Winnipeg native Ryan Reaves, who scored the winning goal Sunday in his hometown. We call ourselves The Golden Misfits for a reason. Were doing a good job of proving everybody wrong.ŽJust as they have all season, they are living in the moment.Vegas, which had just two players under contract at this time last year, heads into the final round with a 12-3 playoff record after outscoring its Western Conference oppo-nents 42-27.Its a credit to coach Gerard Gallants philosophy of having a well-conditioned, confident group of forwards who work well together, focus on short effective shifts, and exude confidence on the ice all while, as he reiterates it daily, playing 200 feet of hockey.And while the Golden Knights havent necessarily been a high-scoring threat, scoring just three or fewer goals in 12 of their 15 playoff games, their defensemen have played exceptional to this point. Vegas has allowed the least amount of goals in the playoffs, among teams that have played 10 games. It was a stifling and disruptive defense that helped propel the Golden Knights past the Jets on Sunday, with their sixth win in eight road games during the postseason.Welcome to Impossible SPORTS TICKER Stanley Cup-bound Vegas turning impossible into possibleVegas Golden Knights Erik Haula (56) and Jonathan Marchessault (81) celebrate after defeating the Winnipeg Jets during NHL Western Conference Finals, game 5, on Sunday in Winnipeg.

** B2 Wednesday, May 23, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Indus-trial and technology companies led stocks to solid gains Monday after the U.S. and China appeared to make sig-nificant progress in trade talks. That helped ease concerns among inves-tors that the worlds two biggest economies might be headed for a trade war.After another round of talks, the two countries agreed not to place tariffs on goods imported from the other. The Chinese government said it will buy more U.S. goods, including energy and agricultural products, while Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the U.S. postponed its proposal to put tariffs on up to $150 billion in goods from China. The two sides gave no indication of how much progress they had made toward ending their dispute entirely and both said hostilities could increase again.Mark Hackett, chief of investment research at Nationwide Investment Management, said inves-tors overreacted to the possibility of a trade war and they may be slowly learning to take a more patient approach with statements by the Trump administration and other nations, which is a good thing, Hackett says, because future administrations may borrow from Trumps aggressive style.Treating Trump literally is destructive for investors,Ž he said. Theres a lot of these issues where there are going to be hyperbolic statements made in the public sphere by both sides.ŽThe S&P 500 index climbed 20.04 points, or 0.7 percent, to 2,733.01. The Dow Jones industrial average rose as much as 371 points during the morning and finished with a gain of 298.20 points, or 1.2 percent, to 25,013.29. The Nasdaq composite gained 39.70 points, or 0.5 percent, to 7,394.04. The Russell 2000 index of smallercompany stocks set another record close as it jumped 10.81 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,637.44.All 11 sectors in the S&P 500 index finished higher. Among industrials, Boeing gained 3.6 percent to $363.92 and construction equipment maker Caterpillar rose 2.1 percent to $158.92. In the financial sector, Bank of New York Mellon added 1.3 percent to $57.72 and JPMorgan Chase rose 0.9 percent to $112.15.Trade disputes have occupied a lot of inves-tors attention for the last two months. Stocks have rallied on signs progress was being made, only to fall back when the situa-tion appeared to worsen. Hackett said Wall Street could get over its trade worries relatively quickly if talks go well.If that happens, he said stocks could be set for further gains because they are still below their early 2018 highs and analysts expect stronger earnings growth, which makes stock prices seem less expensive.General Electric rose 1.9 percent to $15.26 after announcing that its train engine division will combine with railroad equipment maker Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies in deal worth $11.1 billion. Its the latest step by GEs CEO, John Flannery, to break off parts of the conglom-erate. GE will get $2.9 billion in cash and will own 50.1 percent of the combined company, and the deal will help it narrow its business down to the aviation, health care and energy industries.Hope for USChina progress boosts stocksBy Danica KirkaThe Associated PressLONDON „ Lisa Mey-ers hair salon is a cozy place where her mother serves homemade macaroons, children climb on chairs and customers chat above the whirr of hairdryers.Most of the time Meyer is focused on hairstyles, color trends and keeping up with appointments. But now shes worried about how the European Unions new data protection law will affect her business as she contacts customers to seek permission to store their details. Even though she supports the law, Meyer fears it may cut her mailing list by 90 percent as people choose to withhold their data or simply over-look her emails.It will be difficult to market upcoming events,Ž she said at her shop, Lisa Hauck Hair & Beauty in London.Businesses from pizza parlors to airlines across the EUs 28 countries are bom-barding customers with emails seeking consent to use personal data as they rush to comply with the blocs General Data Protection Regulation, which takes effect Friday. The new rules called GDPR for short, are designed to make it easier for EU residents to give and withdraw permission for companies to use personal information, requiring consent forms that are written in simple language and no more than one page long. Companies that already hold such data have to reach out to customers and ask for permission to retain it. Authorities can fine companies up to 4 percent of annual revenue or 20 million euros ($23.6 million), whichever is higher, for breaching the rules. Regulators say the law applies to anyone who collects, uses or stores personal data. That can be a burden for small businesses that are forced to hire out-side lawyers or consultants because they dont have the staff or expertise to deal with the law.The EUs one-size-fits-all approach is one of the flaws in the law, according to Max Schrems, an Aus-trian privacy advocate who has formed a non-profit to take action against big companies that deliber-ately violate the new rules.When the rules were being discussed, industry lobbyists sought to weaken the law by creating uncer-tainty, and as a result there are no clear guidelines that exempt small companies, Schrems told the BBC recently. GDPR is a prime exam-ple of corporate law gone wrong, because its helpful for big companies,Ž he said. They have to do all of this anyways and they can use the uncertainty in the law to kind of get around things. But it leaves small companies that dont ... have a law department, or something like that, in a situation with a lot of uncertainty.ŽMeyer falls under the new rules jurisdiction because she keeps data. Like many hair colorists, she keeps a card on each of her clients that notes whether they are allergic to any chemicals used in the dyes. Thats considered personal medical informa-tion that must be protected. I find it actually quite scary how data is being used so carelessly,Ž Meyer said. Its a good wake-up call. Its made me more aware.ŽData con rmationThe Associated PressBRUSSELS „ Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to have his meeting Tuesday with the leaders of the European parlia-ment about data privacy be broadcast publicly through web streaming.The evening meeting with leaders of the polit-ical groups and a justice and civil rights expert was long expected to be private.But many in the European Parliament had been calling for an on-air grilling for Zuckerberg to explain his companys role in a scandal about the misuse of customer data.European Parliament President Antonio Tajani said in a state-ment Monday that after discussing the issue with Zuckerberg I am glad to announce that he has accepted this new request.Ž Tajani called it great news for EU citizens.

The heart wants to make it all better. I tend to lead with my heart which Im learning is not necessarily in alignment with what the Bible tells me. Mercy and grace are some things that I want in my everyday life, that I have in my everyday life. Gods mercy and grace is upon us. That said, I struggle with smoothing everything over in the name of mercy and grace. An episode of That 70s ShowŽ comes to mind. In it, the parents finally catch the kids behaving inappropriately and the father brings down the hammer. Nailing windows shut, doing bed checks, sitting guard over curfew at the doors. The whole process brings about absolute misery in the house. Finally the mother announces that she wants her house back, her life back, and to do that they are going to pretend like nothing wrong happened and everyone is going back to normal. Then within a few seconds, everything goes back to normal and the credits run. How I wish my life was like a television show. Except you cant pretend like nothing happened. You cant parent with your eyes closed and you certainly cant force everything to go back the way it was. In Jesus parable of The Prodigal Son, we are reminded that it is always possible to come home. The father held his arms open wide and with such devotion and love announced a feast to celebrate the homecoming of his wayward child. A true testimony to Gods love for us and his grace. Notice however that when the father addressed his other son, who was upset and concerned, the father assured him that he remembered that he was always with him. That he had never left him and that all the father had was his. While the father welcomed home his wayward son, he wasnt ignoring the consequences of the sons actions. This is a reminder that regardless of what choices we make, we can always go home, we can always get a fresh start, but we arent free from the consequences of our actions. When I dig into the subject, its hard as a parent. Having one child come to you and demand their inheritance, which is given upon ones death typically, must hurt. I cant imagine standing before my parent and basically wishing they were dead so that I could have money to do as I wanted. But this is the reality that the father had. Instead of saying, no, go clean out the camel shed and think twice about being rude,the father gave his son what he asked for. Again I cant imagine that father watching as his son left „ my heart breaks just thinking of it. Yet we are all that son in one way or another. We have all stood before God, our Father, and shamed him. We have asked for things that arent ours, done things that we knew better than to do... and yet his arms are wide open and his grace is good. We will constantly find ourselves on the wrong side of this parable. Because while God gave us free will and forgiveness... he does not protect us from the consequences of our actions. We reap what we sow. These are the battles we face in life. So as a parent, I have to base my approach on how our Father deals with us when we are wayward and disobedient... I need to follow what my spirit tells me versus what my heart says. My spirit says to hold strong to the Lord in my time of need. That everyone has to learn their own path. That you can love someone and not approve or accept their current path. Just like the father in the parable, you can send one out with love and know that one day, they will repent and return to the fold. My spirit says that one day we come to our senses and return to our Fathers fold... just like the Prodigal Son.Fighting the heart If you would like your Washington County church listed here, please send information to: news@chipleypaper. com.

Colorado Mesa Uni-versity student Karissa Erickson was initially told by the university that "speeches should be free of any one religious slant." But thanks to a letter sent to the university by the Alliance Defending Freedom to appeal the rule prohibiting religious content in schoolrelated speeches, Erickson was allowed to give her speech on May 11. Despite the school allowing Erickson to give her speech, some university officials said she could face "reper-cussions" by leaving the references to Jesus and the Bible in her speech.University graduate allowed to mention Jesus, Bible in commencement speech
