Rising costs in supplies means having to raise service costs to local residents, according to Wash-ington County EMS Director Randy Truette."A bag of fluids that used to cost us one dollar now costs us seven do llars," said Tru-ette. "We have no choice but to raise our fees. We dont charge nearly as much as some of the bigger counties, but there has been an increase."Rates in the years 2013-2015 for Basic Life Support (BLS) for non emergencies were at $250 and emergencies at $350. Advanced Life Support (ALS) Level 1 rates started at $400 and Level 2 at $600. In the years 2016-2018 BLS for non emergencies rates rose to $475 and emergencies were at $575. Rates for ALS Level 1 rose to $650 and Level 2 to $800.ALS Level 1 covers setting the patient up with an IV and or oxygen and transporting to their destination.

As one of the nations largest free festivals, this years festival promises to bring m ore activities than previous years.PWF Chairman Colby Peel expects record break-ing attendance this year due in part to Friday nights entertainment line-up."We expect at least 5,000 to be in attendance at the concert on Friday and throughout all the events on Saturday," Peel said. "Who doesnt want to come see Deana Carter and Joe Nichols for free and enjoy spending time with their community."What began as an end of season celebration on Ross Deals farm in 1956 has morphed into the family fun event that draws crowds from throughout the region. According the Hon. Judge Perry Wells, former PWF chairman, the first event was hosted in 1956 by Deal at his watermelon loading shed as a celebration of a success of the growing season and of those who helped make it possible.In 1969, former Washington County Extension Agent Red Davis, would organize what is now known as the Panhandle Water-melon Festival. Around 1970, Wells would take the helm and lead the charge for the next 35 years with his wife, Hester.Thirteen years ago, Peel took the reins and following in his predecessors foot-steps, continues to grow the event year after year.Music on, melons ripe, summer is here2018 PWF Schedule of EventsFRIDAY, JUNE 22:Pals Park5 p.m.: Gates open 6 p.m.: Concert starts with Deana Carter and Headliner Joe Nichols Saturday, June 23: 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.: Pancake Breakfast at the Panhandle Shrine Club Cost is $5 per person with all proceeds bene“ ting services provided by the Panhandle Shrine Club. 7: 30 a.m.: Watermelon Hot Trot, beginning at the Florida Panhandle Technical College 10 a.m.: Watermelon Parade Washington County Agricultural Center: 10:45 a.m.: Music by The Drummond Family 11:45 a.m.: Queen introductions Noon: Watermelon auction 1:30 p.m.: Music by Wendell Mobley and Paul Overstreet A sand sculpture sat under the sunny weather at the PWF in 2016.

RobinsonThe News | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comVERNON … The City of Vernons sewage treatment plant could see updates made in order tobecome in compliance with state mandates.The plant was shut down due to outdated equipment, which left the only place area com-panies can dump their raw sewage in Port St. Joe, 90 miles away.Washington County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Tray Hawkins addressed the council when they met in workshop June 4, about this issue saying if it could be reopened, the revenue could go to support it in the years to come. If we can get the plant back up and running, the revenue funds could go into an account to use for repairs and updates in the future,Ž said Hawkins.The approximately $465,000 cost could come in the form of a Commu-nity Development Block Grant (CDBG) to fund the project. Hawkins said the county will also be looking to the state for possible funding for the project.More discussion and possible action is expected at the next regular session council meeting.Bids for the repaving of the Sportsplex were opened and are also expected to be voted on in regular session. Football and Cheerleading signups are underway as well. The baseball awards banquet is set for June 12 at 6 p.m. at the Sportsplex, council members are expected to be in attendance.Vernon Fire Department Captain John Williamson addressed the council about ongo-ing issues that he says are a health hazard saying that they were supposed to come to a decision by June 4.We were told these issues would have a deci-sion made by tonight,Ž said Williamson.President Gary Owens responded that a decision was not able to be made tonight and would be up again for discussion at the June 18 meeting.Two of our council members and the mayor will meet with you as soon as possible,Ž he said.At which point Williamson approached the council and laid his key on the table stating, Here is my key to the office, I am out of the Vernon Fire Department,Ž Williamson said. The next conversa-tion will be with lawyers. See ya.ŽCouncil members were unable to answer questions regarding the issues at hand but advised they would be addressed at the fire departments meeting on June 5.Vernon City Council will meet again in regular ses-sion on June 18 at 6 p.m.Vernon looks to update sewage treatment plantLocal rep tapped to lead VA health subcommitteeBy Collin Breaux747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB CollinB@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ During Congressman Neal Dunns first term, 40 per-cent of his constituents complaints have been about the VA.The frequency of those health care concerns, paired with Dunns 11 years as an Army surgeon, have motivated the fresh-man U.S. Congressman to focus his political goals on veterans issues.Dunn recently was appointed by House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Phil Roe to lead the subcommittee on health. He stopped by The News Herald office Thurs-day to talk about his new role and veteran-friendly legislation hes pushed through while in office.On that list, Dunn pointed to the VA Mission Act of 2018, which would replace the Choice Program and allow veterans more private care options, as an example of overhaul efforts that have received mixed reaction from Bay County veterans. The Mis-sion Act has been approved by Congress but still has to be signed by President Donald Trump before it officially becomes law.Im trying not to just rush in and make a lot of changes,Ž Dunn said of his role on the health subcom-mittee. The first thing to do is take stock of what weve got. Theres a lot of numbers. Youre talking about the single largest hospital and health care system in the country.ŽDunns seat is up for election this November in a district where the military and veterans are a focal point. He is being challenged by Democrats Bob Rackleff of Tallahassee and Brandon Peters of Williston.Legislation introduced by Dunn has become part of the Mission Act, includ-ing the Veterans Increased Choice for Transplanted Organs and Recovery (VICTOR) Act, which gives veterans in need of an organ or bone marrow transplant through the VA health care system the abil-ity to seek care at a federally certified transplant center near their home.Currently, veterans who seek care through the VA and are in need of an organ transplant must go to one of only 14 Veterans Affairs Transplant Centers (VATCs) in the country.Transplants are highly, highly time-sensitive operations. They have to be done, and they have to be done quickly.Ž Dunn said. If you have a guy in Florida who needs a liver transplant, hes got to get to Minneapolis to get to the liver. ... We literally have no VA transplant center in Florida.ŽThe Veterans Opioid Abuse Prevention Act, which seeks to prevent opioid abuse by veterans by connecting VA health providers to a national network of state-based prescription drug monitoring programs, also was incorporated into the Mis-sion Act.In addition to veterans issues, Dunn has also focused on Tyndall Air Force Base, including pushing for upgrades to a F-22 training unit. Dunn included an amendment to modernize [an] F-22 training wingŽ by making it combat-ready to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019 passed by the House. The NDAA still has to be passed by the Senate and signed by Trump.The upgrade would cost $1.5 billion over several years. Combat and noncombat F-22s differ in electronics, sensors and weapons bay features.This is easily the cheap-est, quickest, most efficient way to increase Americas air superiority,Ž Dunn said. We have had air superiority since World War II, and in order to keep that, we got to take our best airto-air combat fighters and keep them ready. Were not changing the mission of the wing from training to combat. Were just making the plains utterly combat-ready, which is better training.ŽDunn keeps military, vets in focusNeal Dunn speaks to staff at The News Herald on Thursday. [PATTI BLAKE/THE NEWS HERALD] In a June 2 story headlined "Woman's Body Found in Washington County g rave site," the location of an argument between the victim and suspect was reported to have taken place at a beach condo. Correction: The authorities did not state where the agruement took place.SETTING IT STRAIGHT By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comWASHINGTON COUNTY Washington County showed an improvement in unemployment rates over last month.While Florida's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for April stayed the same as March this year, Washington County improved 0.3 percent for the same period. The county also improved 0.4 percent year over year, as was also reflected by the state's unemployment rates.According to CareerSource Chipola, the region, which includes Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington, had an employment rate of 3.7 percent 0.6 percent lower than the rate a year ago.There were 1,519 unemployed residents in the region for the same period.The labor force for the region also improved, adding 140 jobs over the year and bringing the force number to 41,592.Unemployment down from March Apr-18 Mar-18 Apr-17 Region 3.7 4.0 4.3 Calhoun 3.9 4.4 4.7 Holmes 3.8 4.2 4.3 Jackson 3.6 4.0 4.3 Liberty 3.8 4.2 4.6 Washington 3.5 3.8 4.1 Source: CareerSource ChipolaUnemployment rates by month, year-over-yearHis brother, Greg Dowis, has a bond set in the amount of $150,000 on the charge of accessory after the fact to murder, the release stated. Both suspects confessed Greg Dowis assisted Sean Dowis with disposing Zimmer-man's body."As relieved as we are that these guys are behind bars for this crime, our hearts are broken for Ms. Zimmermans family," WCSO Sheriff Kevin Crews stated. "Our worst fears were realized in this case. No family should ever have to endure a loss such as this and we are grateful for a community that has rallied around this family and our agency throughout this investigation." BODYFrom Page A1

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett A cons titutional amendment, in its purest form, allows the voice of the people to rise above „ and override „ the partisan bickering of politics and endless red tape of state bureaucracy. Its power to the people, pure and simple So why doesnt it work? Two full years ago, Floridians spoke both loud and clear on Amendment 2: Medical Marijuana. Pundits thought the issue was a toss-up on that 2016 ballot initiative. It takes 60 percent of registered voters to pass a constitutional amendment. Pundits were wrong. The amendment supporting the legalization of medical marijuana steamrolled the opposition statewide with 71.3 percent of the vote. Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties were in line with that numberat a combined71.2 percent. So why isnt it working? Here is all we need to show exactly what the will of the voters was on that Tuesday in November 2016, the ballot summary: Allows medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating medical conditions as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not immunize violations of federal law or any non-medical use, possession or production of marijuana.Ž Thats it. Voters were not unleashing widespread abuse of devil weed. And there was clear, empirical evidence that marijuana helped ease symptoms of pain in a significant and suffering segment of society. Since 2016, the issue has met with a fate too familiar to us all when Tallahassee sticks its snout into meaningful medicine. Caveats abound, driven by campaign contributions and backroom deals. The main thrust of the smokescreen meant to talk the issue to death, is the difference between pot thats takenŽ and pot thats smoked.Ž What difference does it make? If marijuana is medically legal „ and we said it was „ who cares how its delivered? Just last week, a Leon County circuit judge ruled that smokable marijuana is allowed under wording of the 2016 amendment. Not surprisingly, the Florida Department of Health immediately appealed the ruling. Plaintiffs in the original ruling are asking Judge Karen Gievers to clear the way for her ruling to take effect „ now. None of this would be necessary, had the Legislature not hedged its campaign finance bets, passing a law in the spring that barred patients from smokingŽ medical marijuana. Read that, they passed a law overturning what Amendment 2 clearly stated and voters clearly upheld. Their reasoning? Smoking can cause health problems. How seriously would the potential effects a decade down the road be to patients currently suffering with Lou Gehrigs Disease or HIV? Isnt it time to drop the charade and let those who can benefit do so? A version of this editorial originally appeared in the Ocala Star-Banner, a sister paper within Gatehouse Media.State sti ing the voice of the voters ANOTHER VIEW Words matter. What we say to each other, how we treat each other matters. There are basic norms of civilized behavior, outside the realm of politics, beyond the reach of cable network news, that we should all be able to agree upon. One of them is that, if you call an African-American woman an "ape," that you are the worst kind of vile racist. And you deserve whatever scorn, whatever vitriol, whatever criticism that comes your way as a result of your actions. It shouldnt be hard to call racist remarks racist. It shouldnt be hard to decry a viciously personal and apparently unprovoked attack. But because of the remove of social media, because the forces at the very top of the American power structure have normalized the worst kind offensive behavior, theres somehow a difference. Because we live in the times that we do, those same disgusting words, uttered by the comedienne Roseanne Barr, about the former Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American, are being inevitably viewed through the filter of partisan politics. And that means, to some, they are, as shockingly, mystifyingly, horrifyingly as it seems, entirely acceptable. And to them, Barr not Jarrett is a victim. That sadly unsurprising sentiment came through loud and clear on Wednesday morning when a reader decided to share his views on my office voicemail. "Yes, I would like to show my support for Roseanne Barr," he began. "The Muslim Brotherhood, The Planet of the Apes. Yeah, you have a perfect Valerie Jarrett. I studied this picture last night. Whats wrong with saying something like that? Oh, all the butt-hurt liberal media. You know what? I hope they all drop dead because Roseanne is right. And that lady ... woman is a b***h anyway." Thats one of your neighbors. One of your colleagues. The guy in front of you in the supermarket checkout line. The person sitting next to you in church. Thats the hateful voice of racism here in central Pennsylvania. And if he were the only one, a lone whack-job crying out in the wilderness, thatd be one thing. But hes not. Hes the torch-bearing, Nazi-flag waving white supremacist who marched in Charlottesville last year. Hes the extreme end of a spectrum that starts with the sort of ignorant prejudice that prompted Starbucks to close its shops on Tuesday to conduct sensitivity training for its employees. But sometimes they dont march. Sometimes they wear suits. And they run for Congress. "Much love @therealroseanne. We live in a country were people dont respect our constitution. One of most essential freedoms is freedom to express ourselves even if it makes others upset. Its beautiful to think different. Shame on the leftist media," Republican Omar Navarro, whos running against U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., tweeted Wednesday.Sadly, Roseanne is a victim to someIm burned out on Trump TV. I dont need to hear any more of his speeches or read one of his tweets. I dont want to watch every little thing President Trump does or says deciphered, misconstrued, attacked, defended, debated or analyzed on my TV every night by his many enemies and few friends. To try to get some actual news Thursday morning I turned over to the Fox Business Network to watch Stuart Varney and the gang. FBN covers real stuff and talks to real reporters about the ups and downs of stocks, the impact of President Trumps trade deals on the economy and stories about the accelerating death spiral of the oncemighty Sears the Walmart/ Amazon of the 1900s. But even on FBN I couldnt escape Hurricane Trump, that permanent category 5 media storm that blows away or crowds out the important national and global news of every day. The big Trump-related story of the morning was the continuing fallout over Roseanne Barrs racist tweet about former Barrack Obama adviser Valerie Jarretts looks. The tweet caused ABC to instantly cancel her highly rated "Roseanne" sitcom and led Robert Iger, the boss of parent company Disney, to call Jarrett right away to apologize. FBNs focus on Roseanne was a perfect example of how low the mainstream media have fallen when it comes to practicing real and important journalism. She topped the news on virtually every channel, butthe big story of the day should have been President Trump signing the "Right to Try" bill, which finally gives terminally ill patients the federal okay to use experimental medications that have not yet been fully approved by the FDA. Barrs tweet was also the latest example of the double standard that permeates the liberal mainstream medias "news" coverage of President Trump. Barr, who made herself a juicy target for liberals by proudly calling herself a Trump supporter, was immediately canned and shamed by the leftwing media industrial complex. Keith Olbermann, Joy Reid, Alec Baldwin, Bill Maher, Don Lemon and "Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee all card-carrying Trump haters have said vile, crude and crazy things about Trump and his family. They did so with little or no harm to their careers. Its safe for a liberal celebrity to call Trump a racist or a Nazi, as Olbermann did, or to call Ivanka Trump "a feckless c-," as Bee did in her monologue Wednesday. Theyll usually get applauded, defended or given every benefit of the doubt when they pull a Roseanne. They almost never have to apologize. For example, Joy Reids homophobic blogs from 10 years ago have been glossed over or excused, and this week she and former riotstarter Al Sharpton were co-hosting a town meeting on racism at MSNBC. Christians, Sarah Palin and conservatives are fair game for nasty name calling and low blows in the liberal media.Roseannes Dumb Tweet J o h n L M i c e k John L. Micek Michael Reagan

** Washington County News | Wednesday, June 6, 2018 A5 LOCAL & STATEBy Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.com WASHINGTON AND HOLMES COUNTIES The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts a 75-percent chance of a normal or close to normal hurricane season. And although that beats out last year's extremely active season that brought us category 5 hurricanes Maria and Irma local emergency management officials advise to take the 2018 hurricane season seriously."Anytime you're in the Gulf Coast region, then you take it seriously," said Washington County Fire Services Coordi-nator Rick Kerr, whose office in out of and coordinates with the county's emergency management. "For example, (subtropical storm Alberto) spun up before the hurricane season even started. If the Gulf waters were a bit hotter, it could have intensified to a category 1 hurricane.""So, it can happen at any time," he said.National public service website Ready.gov offers a few basic preparedness tips: have an evacuation plan and route, assemble go-bags that include flashlights, batteries, cash, first aid supplies, medications and copies of critical information, plan for adequate supplies (waters, nonperishable food, etc.) if you decide to stay home, and be sure to sign up for local emergency alerts."Everybody in their family needs to understand what the evacuation plan is," said Wendy Mayor, Director of Emergency Management in Holmes County. "They need to know where they will evac-uate to; their shelters that are located in their counties."Mayo and Kerr recom-mend each family prepare per person three to seven days of food, water and medications. First aid kits and other supply kits should be prepared, as well, officials said.NOAA predicts a 10 out of 16 named storms (winds of 39 miles per hour or higher), of which five to nine could become hurricanes (winds of 74 miles per hour or higher) and one to four major hurri-canes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 miles per hour or higher).Both counties open emer-gency shelters when a state of emergency is communicated or declared by state officials. Call the respective offices for more information.Mark Mauldin, UF/IFAS Extension Agent for Washington County, reminds people to make preparations for their livestock and pets."We worry about water with pasture animals," Mauldin said. "Have a plan to get water to your animals in the event that power gives out for an extended period of time."It is recommended that back-up generates be used to power water supply for the pastures; however, in an extreme emergency, it's okay to give livestock access to surface water, such as ponds."Animal identification is also important," he noted. "In the event that cows roam-ing, it helps to sort things out if the animals are tagged, at least."Clay roads become slick and dangerous after or during heavy rains. Staying off the road is one of the best ways to keep you and others safe, also, frees up roadways for emergency vehicles to get to downed power lines, trees or residents in need, officials said."You never know how quickly things can change in the storms, watch and pay attention to the watches and warnings issued," Mayo said. "I know it has been a while since we've had anything active -Irma last year was the first in 10 years; (but) it only takes one storm."From lists of local shelter location to storm tracking charts to special needs reg-istry, which provides special assistance to individuals with special needs, the local offices have a wealth of resources to help residence get prepared."We just want to encourage all of our residents to be prepared, don't be complacent. have a storm kit and remember that readiness is everybody's job," Mayo concluded.

"But we have no choice to pay because we have to provide these services to our citizens."Massey says the county does its best to frugal as well as conscientious of taxpayer monies."Until we can get those other revenue sources, the county will have to be frugal in expendi-tures," said Massey. "We have to be good stewards of our taxpayers dollars, if we want to move our county forward."

** Washington County News | Wednesday, June 6, 2018 A7By Sonia Perez D.The Associated PressEL RODEO, Guatemala „ Rescuers pulled survi-vors and bodies Monday from the charred aftermath of the powerful eruption of Guatemalas Volcano of Fire, as the death toll rose to 62 and was expected to go higher from a disaster that caught residents of remote mountain hamlets off guard, with little or no time to flee to safety.Using shovels and backhoes, emergency workers dug through the debris and mud, perilous labor on smoldering ter-rain still hot enough to melt shoe soles a day after the volcano exploded in a hail of ash, smoke and molten rock.Bodies were so thickly coated with ash that they looked like statues, and rescuers were forced to use sledgehammers to break through the roofs of houses buried in debris up to their rooflines to try to see if anyone was trapped inside.Fanuel Garcia, director of the National Institute of Forensic Sciences, said 62 bodies had been recovered and 13 of those had been identified.It is very difficult for us to identify them because some of the dead lost their features or their fingerprintsŽ from the red-hot flows, Garcia said. We are going to have to resort to other methods ... and if possible take DNA samples to identify them.ŽHilda Lopez said her mother and sister were still missing after the slurry of hot gas, ash and rock roared into her village of San Miguel Los Lotes, just below the mountains flanks.We were at a party, celebrating the birth of a baby, when one of the neighbors shouted at us to come out and see the lava that was coming,Ž the distraught woman said. We didnt believe it, and when we went out the hot mud was already coming down the street.ŽMy mother was stuck there, she couldnt get out,Ž said Lopez, weeping and holding her face in her hands.Her husband, Joel Gonzalez, said his father had also been unable to escape and was believed to be buried back there, at the house.ŽGuatemalan authorities say they had been closely monitoring the Volcano of Fire, one of Central Americas most active, after activity picked up around 6 a.m. Sunday. The volcano has regis-tered a number of minor eruptions over the years, and no evacuations were ordered as scientific experts reported the activity was decreasing.Guatemalas disaster agency, Conred, issued a number of standard precautions, advising people to wear protective face masks, clean their rooftops of ash once the eruption was over and cover any food and water intended for human consumption. It also said to heed any recommendations from authorities. Guatemala Citys international air-port was closed due to the danger to planes.Conred spokesman David de Leon said that around 2 p.m. the volcano registered a new, more powerful explosion.Soon, searing flows of lava, ash and rock mixed with water and debris were gushing down the volcanos flanks, blocking roads and burning homes.It traveled much faster. It arrived in com-munities right when the evacuation alerts were being sent out,Ž de Leon said.Authorities scrambled to issue an evacuation order. Some communities emptied out safely. But in places like Los Lotes and the village of El Rodeo, about eight miles downslope from the crater, it was too late for many.The fast-moving flows overtook people in homes and streets with temper-atures reaching as high as 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit, and hot ash and volcanic gases that can cause rapid asphyxiation.Rafael Letran, a resident of El Rodeo, criticized Conred for not evacuating communities earlier.When the lava was already here they passed by in their pickup trucks yelling at us to leave, but the cars did not stop to pick up the people,Ž Letran said. The government is good at stealing, but when it comes to helping people they lack spark.ŽDe Leon said the disas-ter agency followed protocol.As soon as we received the information around 6 a.m. that the volcano was in an eruptive phase, the protocol was initiated to verify with different sectors and also talk to the communities, to community leaders. ... We had the information from our scientific ser-vice, and they told us the trend was that the activ-ity was diminishing,Ž he said.In El Rodeo on Monday, heavily armed soldiers wearing blue masks to avoid breathing in ash stood guard behind yellow tape cordoning off the disaster scene. Helmeted workers carried bodies away on stretchers, and smoke was still rising from some parts of the ashen landscape strewn with boulders and other debris.President Jimmy Morales traveled to survey the disaster area.Emergency crews in helicopters managed to pull at least 10 people alive from areas cut off by the flows. Conred said 3,265 people had been evacuated.Volcano death toll expected to rise NATION & WORLDGuatemalas disaster agency says hot ash and mud have already killed 62 peopleA resident cries after she was safely evacuated from her home Monday near the Volcan de Fuego, or Volcano of Fire,Ž in Escuintla, Guatemala.

Is it anymore? Lets talk it out. Tune in online at www.news-journalonline. com/daytonamotormouths THREE THINGS TO WATCHPOCONO THREE THINGS WE LEARNED Fourteen races in, who's your biggest pleasant surprise? GODSPEAK: I'm going with everybody's second-favorite driver, Clint Bowyer. Got a win and is sixth in points. KEN'S CALL: Only because other guys his age have been eyeballing the exit ramp, I'll say Harvick's career-best roll through the opening months.And since we asked, your biggest disappointment? GODSPEAK: Kasey Kahne, because I thought his driving skills would elevate the performance of the No. 95 Chevy. He's 28th in points. KEN'S CALL: This one is easy. All of Hendrick Motorsports. They're off the rails and searching, and while folks assume they'll “ nd it, you just never know. ERIK JONES VS. JOEY LOGANO: During a restart on Lap 151 (of 160) Logano pushed Jones off the track and motored forward to a ninth-place “ nish. Jones wound up 29th. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Within a minute of the incident, Logano told his spotter to apologize to Jones spotter in the tower. Is Jones a polite young man? We will “ nd out in the coming weeks.WINNER: Kyle Larson REST OF TOP 5: Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Kurt Busch FIRST ONE OUT: Kasey Kahne DARK HORSE: Aric Almirola DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Larson zooms to his fourth consecutive win at the 2-mile oval and signals Chevys return to action. Do Kyles numbers get enough respect?Not as much as theyd get if he were more well-liked, but those 189 total wins across NASCARs top three series are hard to ignore when searching for the greatest career achievements in stock-car history. His Pocono win gave him 92 wins in that series, to go along with 50 in Trucks and 47 in Cup. Someday down the road, thats going to be one wordy Hall of Fame plaque. Will his eventual career totals ever be matched?Its easy to say no, to assume no one will ever venture away from the Cup Series enough to pile up those numbers. But 15 years ago, we never wouldve assumed Kyles numbers being where they are. Remember, nearly 20 years ago we thought it was amazing when Mark Martin got beyond 40 wins in the X“ nity Series (or was it Busch?) as a mere moonlighter.

We grow up playing with them, blowing seed heads and rubbing the yellow flowers on our faces. Somewhere along most of our personal journeys, the grown-ups manage to convince us that dandelions are bad, because of what they do to the grass monocultures that most Americans cultivate instead of food. My wife is the outlier who would have me veer the lawnmower around a dandelion, which are like the sacred cows of our yard. But unlike most people who worship sacred cows, she eats the object of her reverence. In fact, shes got the whole family doing it, which is no mean feat. Human beings may be born with an appreciation for the aesthetics of dandelions, but not so much for the flavor. You could say it takes work to overcome that bitter hump, but its really a matter of appreciating the benefits and associating them with those bitter flavors, as Ive managed to do with bitter foods like beer, chocolate and coffee. I try to pay as much attention to how something makes me feel afterward as I do to how it tastes, and dandelions make me feel good. It wasnt surprising to learn they are full of nutrients including carotenes, antioxidants, calcium and vitamin A. The secret to eating dandelions is a decadent sauce. Fry it up The entire plant is edible, from the tip of its tenacious taproot to the bright yellow pollen in the blossom. While bitter is the dominant flavor throughout, there is complexity as well. The flowers have an aromatic flavor that has been likened to banana or licorice. When you drop a dandelion in butter, some magical stuff happens. The flower waves its petals for a few minutes like a dying creature, and slowly browns, absorbing butter, shrinking down to a crispy nub that tastes like artichoke with a faint, intriguing note of bitterness. There are two basic approaches to dandelion eating: bury the bitter flavor, or work with it. Either way, a rich sauce is involved. Most examples of burying involve cooking, while the more daring approaches leave the plant raw. We consume bitter greens with a salad dressing of olive oil (2 part), soy sauce (1 part) and mixed vinegars (balsamic, cider, white, lime) (1 part). But for many of us, the right sauce may be that into which we dip our batter-fried dandelion blossoms. I hit the supermarket for a box of Tony Chacheres seasoned Creole fish fry mix, which contains a mix of corn flour and corn meal, in addition to seasonings. The checkout guys were excited about my dandelion plans. At home, I made an egg wash so the batter would stick to the dandelion flowers. It contains one beaten egg with a splash of cream, a shake of garlic powder, a few drops of fish sauce and a teaspoon of oyster sauce. Oil from a jar of anchovies would work, too. I dumped the Creole corn coating in a pan, and went outside for some dandelions. It was sunset, and the sky was beautiful. My wife was in the garden, and all of the dandelion flowers were gone. Every single one. I assumed she was responsible, but she informed me that dandelion flowers close up at night, so I needed to look a little more closely. To deep-fry open or closed flowers, first wash them and let them dry. Drop the blossoms in the egg wash, pull them out one at a time, and roll each flower in the breading. Heat an inch of olive oil to 300 degrees, and drop the flowers in. Cook until they are golden brown all around. Remove and d rain. Going raw Another approach to eating dandelions is to just eat the yellow petals. If you pinch and squeeze the sepal area behind the petals, you can work them out. They can be added raw to anything, from salad to sushi to pancakes. They make a striking garnish for a soup, and they way they dress up rice is perhaps my favorite way to eat dandelion flowers. Tossing those bright stamen into the grains of jasmine or basmati rice is kind of like a poor mans saffron rice, with a similar pollen-y glow. Whole dandelion buds can be added too, raw or cooked, to any dish at virtually any point, as can the leaves, typically chopped. Topped with some crumbled nori sheets, soy sauce, sesame oil and hot sauce, the bitter dandelion flavors disappear into a symphony of other strong, wonderful notes. The bitter power of the dandelion can give pizzaz to the bland and balance any strong flavor, be it spicy, sweet, salty or fatty, and even more bitter. Dandelions are delicious, with a little prepFLASH IN THE PANTaste of summerThere are two basic approaches to dandelion eating: bury the bitter ” avor, or work with it. [ARI LEVAUX]

Indexes of technology companies and smaller, more U.S.-focused companies both hit all-time highs.Major technology companies including Googles parent company, Alphabet, made big gains, while Apple rose as it previewed new features and software updates at its Worldwide Developers Conference. Microsoft edged higher after it said it will buy the coder platform GitHub, while new privacy con-cerns weighed on shares of Facebook.Retailers including Target, Walmart and Under Armour rallied, as did Amazon. Energy companies fell as the price of oil continued to slide.After an up and down week last week, the S&P 500 index, a market benchmark used by many index funds, is on its first winning streak in three weeks. The technology-heavy Nasdaq composite finished at a record high, above a mark it set March 12, while the smaller Russell 2000 surpassed a record it set last week.Last week investors reacted to political turmoil in Italy and rising trade tensions as the U.S. continued to hold talks with Chinese offi-cials and placed tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Europe, Mexico and Canada.Stocks have wobbled in the last few months as investors worried that tariffs and other barriers to trade will reduce economic growth and corporate profits. But Wall Street has mostly treated the tough talk and proposed tariffs as a negotiating tactic. Invesco Chief Global Market Strategist Kris-tina Hooper said the U.S. crossed an important dividing line last week when, after months of talks, its aluminum and steel import duties went into effect.It appears that will lead to some significant retaliatory tariffs,Ž she said. Markets seem to treat it as if its just rhetoric and its just a bargaining tool, and my view is that that is foolhardy.ŽThe S&P 500 climbed 12.25 points, or 0.4 per-cent, to 2,746.87.

Tech drives Nasdaq to record highsBy Ken ThomasThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump defended his tough trade negotiations with China, Canada and Mexico on Monday, saying that U.S. farmers have been treated unfairly.Ž The president vowed to turn the tide and break down large trade barriers with top trading partners.Trump opened the week with a series of tweets pointing to his ongoing trade talks with China and a slew of U.S. allies, pointing to his work to help the nations agricul-ture industry. He tweeted that farmers hadnt been doing well for 15 years,Ž blaming the policies of Mexico, Canada and China.By the time I finish trade talks, that will change. Big trade barriers against U.S. farmers, and other businesses, will finally be broken. Massive trade deficits no longer!Ž Trump tweeted. In a sep-arate tweet, he wrote that China already charges a tax of 16% on soybeans. Canada has all sorts of trade barriers on our Agri-cultural products. Not acceptable!Ž The president last week imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from top U.S. trading partners, including Canada, Mexico and the European Union. And he has threatened tariffs on up to $200 billion in Chinese imports, raising the potential for retalia-tion in a dispute involving the globes two largest economies.Senate Republicans have warned that the tariffs could dampen the economic gains from the GOP tax cuts and sour the mood among voters as lawmakers are campaigning to protect the Republican majority in Congress.Many farm-belt lawmakers worry that the trade disputes could make American farmers the target of retaliation. Mexico, for example, has said it will penalize U.S. imports including pork, apples, grapes and cheeses.Groups backed by the influential Koch brothers network announced they were launching a new mul-timillion dollar campaign to oppose tariffs and high-light the benefits of free trade. The groups „ Free-dom Partners Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Prosperity and The LIBRE Initiative „ called on Con-gress to exert oversight by requiring House and Senate votes on any new tariffs and urged the lift-ing of the recent steel and aluminum tariffs as well as those being proposed on goods from China.Freedom Partners James Davis said they wanted to confront pro-tectionist ideasŽ they say would hold back the economy.Trump: US farmers will be treated fairly in trade talksBy Michael Liedtke and Ryan NakashimaThe Associated PressSAN JOSE, Calif. „ Apple introduced new controls for limiting how much time customers spend on their devices as the company tackles criticism that its devices are becoming increasingly addictive and distracting.The controls allow users to set Do Not DisturbŽ modes on their phones, such as at night or during trips to the playground with their kids.

Both companies efforts come as experts worry that all the flashy colors and beeps give users shortterm, feel-good rewards while increasing stress in the long run.The new Apple features previewed Monday wont reach users for a few months. Rather, they were shown to let software developers start building apps to make iPhones and other Apple devices more useful.And that underscores a paradox: Apple is introducing features to limit iPhone use at the same time its encouraging more use by building in more useful features.Other highlights from the show include: Better browsing privacyApple is taking a swipe at ubiquitous shareŽ but-tons created by Facebook and others to track your behavior online regardless of whether you click on them. The company says its shutting down that tracking through its Safari browser in an update to Mac and iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads. Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi said such tracking would be blocked by default. Even if users click to share an item, they will get a prompt with an option to prevent subsequent tracking.He also said Apple would crack down on so-called fingerprinting,Ž in which data companies identify specific devices by creating a unique fingerprint based on a devices particular configuration settings, installed fonts and plug-ins. Apple plans to instead send out generic data to such collectors, making a users device look just like any other Apple device. Federighi said the changes will make it dramatically more difficult for data companies to identify you and track you.ŽLast year, Apple added intelligent tracking preventionŽ that imposes time limits on tracking cookies and takes other measures to try to prevent advertising tech companies from following users around the web. Augmented reality gets augmentedApple rolled out new support for augmented reality applications as it unveiled a new format for digital objects that appear to live in the real world.The update comes as Apple tries to extend AR experiences to a broader population, rather than just hard-core, tech-savvy users. The company started that effort last year when it built AR tools into most iPhones and iPads; by contrast, Google had lim-ited that to niche Android phone models.Digital objects created with the new format, called USDZ, will work in Apples Safari browser, Messages and Mail apps, meaning AR isnt limited to stand-alone apps that people choose to download separately. The format will also get support in Adobes Cre-ative Cloud suite of apps for professional photog-raphers, videographers and designers. What remains to be seen is whether there is enough of a compelling reason for someone to use AR, even if its built-in to everyday apps.Apple also unveiled an app called MeasureŽ that measures boxes and other objects in the real world by pointing the camera at them.

** B4 Wednesday, June 6, 2018 | Washington County News FAITHThere are times when you have to ask yourself why everything around you is sinking like the Titanic. You have dreams and things that you want to achieve but there isnt any break in the drama in sight. The bills equal up to the same or more than your paycheck. The drama at work keeps you stressed and constantly thinking of finding a new job ... but you have changed jobs before and it wasnt any better afterward. You keep rowing and rowing but your boat never gets anywhere. In fact, you really would like a better boat but you just cant afford one. You plug the holes that constantly show up in your boat at the worst timing possible. How in the world are you ever going to get ahead? When the chips are down and the world is stacked against you, how are you going to make forward ground? What if the answer to everything is something you havent considered? What if the problem is you? The drama that surrounds you? The kind that gets so thick its hard to see straight sometimes? It comes from you. You are your worst enemy and you dont even see the process. But its really a simple concept: people who are hurting hurt other people. Hurting people disrupt the progress and happiness of others. Its almost like a bucket of crabs... you dont need a lid cause the crabs will constantly work to pull down any others that are trying to escape. You pull down the people around you because you are drowning in your failures, restless in your planning and lost in your faith. Perhaps the people that you surround yourself with are shallow in their pursuits. They are easy to be around because they dont question your core beliefs. They dont push you to grow and be better. Your relationships accept you for your compromises and your faults without looking deeper. Mainly because they dont want to look below the surface of their own waves. You constantly ask yourself what is wrong with everyone?Ž Yet, there is no clear answer. Because you are the problem rather than everyone else. Its a strong person who can sit down and understand that maybe, just maybe, they are the reason everything around them fails. You have poisoned the well and you continue to do so by ignoring the signs. Everyone has a bad day. A bad week. But when the problems are constant, when everyday you are banging your head against the wall ... It takes a big person to understand that there are issues that stem from you. When all else fails, you ask yourself... what now? It starts with realizing that you are unhappy with yourself. You have to love yourself before anyone around you can love you, and before you can truly love yourself. If you dont like what you see in the mirror then you are playing a part in your own misery and those around you, well, they are helping you along. How do you know if this applies to you? Well its really simple: Are you stonewalling the people who love you? Are you keeping those who know you and love you anyway, at arms distance? Not the people who see what you let them see, but the people who know the heart of you. Do you highlight their errors but ignore your own? Frankly it all comes down to ... what do you want for your future? Can you say you were wrong? That is the point where you know when you can face the battles ahead. Can you admit that you were part or the whole of the problem? Can you admit you were wrong and move forward? Taking ownership of the root of the problem is how you step forward. At some point, you will come to the understanding that everyone cant be against you ... so its you. You are the starting point and you are the only ending point. You can distort the truth, you can embellish the reality and you can strive to pass the blame but eventually the truth will catch up to you. Until you know yourself and love yourself, you cant love anyone else.
