Chipley Police Depart-ment stated in a June 4 news release, Jason E. Turnage, 41, of Wausau, was arrested June 1 following a traffic stop on State Road 77 after a CPD officer noticed various equipment violations on a Turnage's blue Dodge Truck.A K9 Unit was deployed when the officer observed "nervous actions made by the driver," the release stated. The dog signaled for the odor of narcotics, to which officers searched the vehicle and recovered marijuana, methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia.A loaded pistol was recov-ered from a backpack with other drugs, the release stated.Turnage was charged with possession of a control sub-stance without a prescription (methamphetamine), pos-session of less than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of narcotics equipment and pos-session or use of a weapon in commission of a felony.Chief Thompson, encour-ages anyone with information regarding illegal activity to contact the Chipley Police Department at (850)6386310 or Crime Stoppers at 850-638-TIPS.K9 unit alerts drugs, Wausau man arrestedBy Diane M. RobinsonThe News | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY … An ordinance allowing mobile food trucks in certain areas of the county was recommended by the Washington County Plan-ning Commission when they met in regular session June 5.The measure states the trucks would be allowed to set up for 60 days in one spot before having to apply for another permit. The propri-etors would also have to have land owner approval to make use of their property.The ordinance has to be approved by the Washing-ton County Board of County Commissioners and each municipality before it goes into effect. It is set to go before each entity in their next regular session meetings.In other bueiness, Spirit Filled Church of God in Christ in Caryville requested a special exception from the commission to construct a cemetery at the intersection of St. Marys Road and Phillips Street. The board approved the request under the guidelines that a cemetery can be built in land designated low to medium residential with a special exception.Chairman David Morris agreed with the request but urged the church to look into the water table elevation to avoid problems in the future.The land may not be in a flood zone but that isnt the same as the water table,Ž Planning recommends ordinance for food trucksBy Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY In a 4-1 vote, Washington County School Board members approved a program that reimburses teachers for achieving additional educational credentials.The vote took place at Monday night's school board meeting. While there was little discussion about the overall program, School Board member Vann Brock told his fellow board mem-bers that he had to "follow his gut" seconds after he voted against the item."My position was it was so narrow and so focused and I thought that moving forward, this could open Pandora's box to other things that might be unforeseen," Brock said after the meeting."When you target such as small group, then if you have other curriculum that comes up that might have to have special degrees or special certifications, then do we not come back and help those folks reach those goals to teach?"Brock's sentiments were not isolated. Vice Chairwoman Dr. Lou Cleveland, who drafted the program,had mentioned that some teach-ers had expressed concern that the program is aimed at a very small pool of teachers. According to the scholarship agreement, the program is available to math, English and psychology teachers who will teach dual-enrollment classes. The capacity for the program is three teachers one math and English teacher at each area high school. One position is currently filled. "We would love to support (all of) our teachers getting their masters and getting their qualifications, but the district can't afford it," Cleveland said.Cleveland said she believed the board recognized the cost savings for offering dual enrollment classes to students at the school district level, rather than funding col-lege-level courses at colleges."I'm really thrilled ... I've been grateful for this pro-cess," Cleveland said. "I think it's so important to keep our dual-enrollment classes in our high schools and I'd love to see a full class at Vernon (High School).""And it's a savings to the district they'll save thou-sands of dollars," she added.The agreement states the school district will reimburse up to $18,000, contingent on the teacher providing tuition receipts and maintaining a 3.0 GPA or higher in each class. Currently, the certification to teach college-level courses require a masters degree and 18 graduate semester hours in the appropriate subject area; or a masters degree with a major in math, English, his-tory or science."We want (students) to stay on campus, that's the bottom line we want to keep them here," said Chairwoman Sue Roberts.School Board approves teacher programTurnage By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY Washington County School District is preparing to open a new school.Tentatively called Washington Academy of Varying Exceptionalities (WAVE), the school for exceptional studentedu-cation (ESE)students three years old through 12th gradewill behousedin the former fifth-gradebuild-ing at Roulhac Middle School."This school will provide a choice, a place where resources are focused on kids with those needs," said Director of Students and ESE Services Elizabeth Arnold.

[JACQUELINE BOSTICK | THE NEWS] Staff ReportCHIPLEY „ A removed tag and proof of insurance led to the arrest of an Ozark, Alabama man.A Chipley Police Department news release stated at about 10 p.m. Sunday, Sebstian Tillery, 25, of Ozark, was arrested after a K9 unit alerted to the odor of narcotics during a traffic stop.A vehicle search led to the recovery of hydrocodone and Zolpidem and two partially burnt marijuana cigarettes, the release stated. Tillery was placed under arrest and booked for two counts of possession of a controlled substance without a pre-scription and less than 20 grams of marijuana.Chief Thompson encourages anyone with information regarding illegal activity to contact the Chipley Police Department at (850)638-6310 or Crime Stoppers at (850)638-TIPS.Ozark man arrested for drugsand paraprofessionals.Monday afternoon, crews were onsite at the six-classroom hall paint-ing walls, waxing the floors and preparing to move-in furniture.Fourteen-year ESE teacher Connie Crutch-field is one of the teachers soon to work at the school.I think its going to be a good thing for the area, the county,Ž she said. Were going to be able to provide what we havent been able to provide the kids „ more intensive centered things, things that apply to them specifically.ŽSome of the conversa-tion stems from lowered enrollment. The school district has grappled in recent years to sustain its enrollment numbers. Earlier in the year, school district officials reported the state Department of Education predicted numbers would continue to tumble; more specifi-cally, by 85 students in the upcoming school year.Having a special needs program for students with more involved cog-nitive disabilities, is one way to boost the enroll-ment number.Arnold emphasized that the school is still a school choice option for parents. That is, just because a child qualifies to enroll in the school, doesnt mean that parents must send their student to the school.The bottom line is the parent has the right to say that their children will or will not go there, it still requires parental consent,Ž she said.The benefits for students include: smaller classroom sizes allow for more one-toone teacher-student interaction, ESE profes-sionals will work together in close proximity to meet students specific needs, and adaptive physical education or music classes will be offered.Each classroom will have an interactive touch-screen board and five computer stations. And, although the school is self-contained, there will be opportunities for middle and high school students to interact with their peers outside of the school during lunch and, some, for elective classes.Additionally, Chipley High School has a credit program for students between 18 and 22 that will provide mentors, reading buddies and teacher assistants to WAVE students, Arnold said.The school district is currently looking to fill one teacher position and three paraprofessional positions.

The reassur-ing sound of the velcro as they remove their bullet proof vest resonates through the room. They are home.For others, another is just beginning, uniforms are being donned, gun belts secured, and little hands are waving as their loved one backs out of the drive. The day ahead is unknown. There will be moments full of joy and there will be moments of grief so strong that it will shake them to their core. Dan-gers will come in a variety of ways and sadly, in todays world, enforcing the law can be as contro-versial as committing the crime. Societys percep-tion of the crime is sold as the gospel, when in fact, the story on the street has more holes than an old thrift store couch.The reality of the job can be heavy but the love for their community is unequivocal to the risk, so they push forward. They continue to serve, knowing that public safety takes a commitment to upholding and enforcing the laws; even when it may not be a pop-ular thing to do.We are very proud to serve the citizens of Washington County. As we continue with each community event, we are looking to build our relationships with you.Our deputies are far more than a uniform with handcuffs. Arresting those that commit crimes comes with the job, but the reason behind remov-ing the offender from our streets is why we do what we do.As always, my door is open to each of you.

** A4 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Washington County NewsWhen I heard my brother Jonathan had taken his own life, my first thought, unfiltered through the sieve of reason, was: Why the hell did he do this to me, to my mother, to us?Ž When I learned that Kate Spade had taken her own life, my first thought was: Why did she do that to them?Ž referring to her husband and 13-year-old daughter. And when, almost unbelievably, I learned that Anthony Bourdain had committed suicide in his hotel room in France, I thought My God, he had everything to live for! Why?Ž Twenty years have not blunted my instincts or reflexes. But unlike the decades it took for me to grapple with my anger and bewilderment at my brothers act, I quickly realized my gross mistake in blaming Spade or Bourdain for hurtingŽ their loved ones or making it about fault,Ž and felt ashamed. My friend helped me listen to those better angels in a Facebook post where she observed, To paraphrase Olympia Dukakis in Moonstruck, What you dont know about depression is a lot.  Im not a psychologist, and my judgment of human nature has been called absolutist, but even I understand that humans cannot live without hope. Emily Dickinson took her Baccarat crystal words and described it like this: Hope is the thing with feathers/That perches in the soul/ And sings the tune without the words/And never stops at all And sweetest in the gale is heard/And sore must be the storm/That could abash the little Bird/That kept so many warm Indeed, depression is something that obliterates the ability to see light through the fog.I have never suffered from its heavy gravity, dragging its victim down to a place where reality is seen through a dark veil, even when the rest of the world can only see why he or she should be filled with gratitude for a wonderful life. By all accounts, Kate Spade had that wonderful life.She was extremely talented, rich beyond any metric I would understand, married to a man who loved her, blessed with a sweet child, and a creative genius. Perhaps that last part is key, though. My sister, who worked in marketing for almost a decade, told me that artistic people are often the ones most susceptible to suicidal thoughts. Thats probably why I shouldnt have been shocked about Bourdains death, either. The chef-turned-journalistturned troubadour of the road had lived a hard-edged life and had once noted that he was surprised to have made it to age 30. He was a manic, magnificent artist. But he was so full of life, that his death still came as a shock. It shouldnt have. But depression doesnt discriminate. It affects kings and commoners. It affected my gentle brother, who, as a child, was kind but detached and seemed to have nerve endings right below the surface of his translucent skin. Normal things that went unobserved by the rest of our rowdy crew of five would be a source of angst for him.His empathy was exceptional for a child.He felt things deeply. He had an otherworldly aspect to him, which might explain why his favorite show was Star Trek.Even when he laughed, he seemed vaguely sad. I dont know if this was the beginning of his depression, but the fact that these things stand out in my memory lead me to believe that his albatross followed him from childhood. Thats not to say Jon was never happy. But it was never complete happiness. When we learned he had committed suicide on the cusp of his 31st birthday, I took comfort in the image of Jonathan Livingston Seagull rising to the heavens, finally free. The idea that family wasnt enough to save him only sank in after years of anger. I forgave him for abandoning us, especially my mother, when I realized that if love could keep someone alive, he would still be with us. Depression is not caused by lack of love. Some of the most beloved people commit suicide. And I have no doubt Kate Spade was surrounded by fierce, intense, profound love. I know that Bourdain was in love with Asia Argento, his apparent soul mate. Suicide is the last act of someone in pain, and who has lost hope that the pain will end. Spade had all the outward signs of success and every reason to be happy, and yet it wasnt enough. Neither was the love for her child. Neither was Bourdains love of life. Neither was my brothers love for us, or ours for him. I have no answer, only a suggestion: Listen to the words not spoken when someone says that nothing is wrong. Be vigilant. Have compassion.Tragic celebrity suicides should be a reminder to listen C h r i s t i n e F l o w e r s Christine Flowers OPINION Have something to say?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett ANOTHER VIEW Netflix recently announced a deal with former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, which will feature the Obamas working both in front of the camera and behind it. Perhaps instead of video production, though, our previous president should become a writer. As shown last week, hes already skilled at crafting fiction. Speaking in Las Vegas, Obama told a crowd of tech execs, I didnt have scandals, which seems like it shouldnt be something you brag about.Ž If you look at the history of the modern presidency,Ž he continued, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. Its a big deal.Ž Well, that line „ which Obama began preaching even before President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January 2017 „ would be a big deal if it were true. But then again, the national media by and large determine what is and isnt scandalous, based on what draws their attention, and Obama sycophants in journalism and our political culture certainly have worked diligently to convince us our 44th president was as pure as driven snow. We disagree with Obama about his scandal-free legacy. On Sept. 11, 2012, terrorists attacked the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. The U.S. ambassador and three other Americans died. Obama administration officials, including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, immediately blamed the attack on spontaneous outrage over an anti-Muslim video. But Clinton, for example, privately blamed alQaida and noted in a Sept. 12, 2012, email the attack had nothing to do with the film.Ž In June 2014 the public learned that the Veterans Administration was fudging records on 120,000 veterans medical appointments. Those vets were denied timely care, or were not cared for at all, resulting in the death of at least 35 veterans in Phoenix alone. The Obama administration, supposedly in the name of national security, spied on or seized records from reporters at Fox News, the Associated Press and CBS News, and threatened a New York Times reporter with prison for not revealing a source who allegedly slipped him classified information. James Clapper, Obamas national intelligence director, and John Brennan, Obamas CIA chief, both lied to Congress about spying on everyday Americans and Senate staffers. In addition, Obama scuttled an FBI investigation into drug-trafficking by Hezbollah before the nuclear deal with Iran was finalized; IRS officials targeted conservative groups seeking tax exempt status ahead of the 2012 election; the Justice Department in 2013 began pressuring banks to halt business with gun dealers, payday lenders, pawn shops and others considered unsavory; the Energy Department gave solar-panel maker Solyndra a $535 million taxpayer-backed loan in 2009, yet the firm went belly up two years later. Were not saying the national media did not report on these things. But these episodes got nowhere near the intense negative coverage of all things Trump. A scandal typically may be in the eye of the beholder. Obama hid his scandals in plain sight, including the claim there were no scandals, and yet he and most of the media still cannot see them. This editorial first appeared in The News Herald, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Obamas scandalfree claim scandalous I dont know if this was the beginning of his depression, but the fact that these things stand out in my memory lead me to believe that his albatross followed him from childhood. Thats not to say Jon was never happy. But it was never complete happiness.

Suspect Howell Donaldsons iPhone data showed a significant amount of Internet activityŽ close to the deaths in fall 2017, the Tampa Bay Times reported That detail emerged from more than 1,500 pages of investigative reports and audio recordings released late Friday by prosecutors in response to the papers public records request. The records also described behavioral changes that troubled Donaldsons on-again, off-again girlfriend.ROMEUnited ” ight turns back to Ireland for security concernA United Airlines flight over the Atlantic has turned back and landed in Ireland because of what the airline called a potential security concern.Ž A United spokeswoman said Monday that passengers and baggage would undergo more security screening before the flight resumes.

Government forces, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, have been advancing along the western coast in recent weeks as they battle the Iran-allied rebels, known as Houthis. The fighting has escalated as government forces close in on the Red Sea port of Hodeida, a vital lifeline through which most of Yemens food and medicine enters.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Bud had maximum sustained winds of 120 mph at midafternoon Monday. It was centered about 440 miles south-southeast of the tip of the Baja peninsula and was moving northwest at 7 mph. Forecasters said the storm could strengthen a bit more before a slow weakening trend started Tuesday. The Associated PressBy Sam Mednick and Lauran NeergaardThe Associated PressMBANDAKA, Congo „ Irene Mboyo Mola spent 11 days caring for her husband as he died of Ebola in a hospital where she said nurses were too scared to get close. She helped him to the bathroom, picked up his feverish body when he lost his balance, and reinserted an IV that fell out of his bleeding arm.He told me all he could see was death,Ž recalls Mola, a 30-year-old mother of six, as she sat slumped on the floor in her small hut. That close contact put Mola at high risk of getting a disease that has no cure and kills about half of those infected. But now, as Congo battles the most seri-ous Ebola outbreak since the devastating 2014 epidemic in West Africa, health workers have something new to offer: a vaccine.With thousands of doses dispatched to front-line health workers, the world is watching to see if a promising but still experimental vaccine might help stop this terrifying disease faster than traditional measures doctors have tried since Ebola was identified 40 years ago.Even if the vaccine helps, there are serious hurdles. The shots must be transported deep into forests with few paved roads without it spoiling in the heat. Health workers have to identify and track down anyone whos had contact with a sick person. Hardest of all, they must persuade a scared and wary population that shots pushed by foreign-ers could save their lives.Communities themselves must be at the center of the response if the activities are going to be effective,Ž said Jonathan Polonsky of the World Health Organization, a surveillance coordinator in Mbandaka, a city of more than 1 million in northwestern Congo.Molas six children have all been vaccinated. But she refused, telling government social workers and WHO workers that she didnt believe her husband died from Ebola. She said the hospital never showed her records confirm-ing hed tested positive for the virus.Theres no guarantee the long-sought vaccine will help stop the outbreak. But Congos health ministry and the WHO rushed in 7,500 doses, created by the Public Health Agency of Canada and owned by Merck.The plan: Whats called ring vaccination,Ž to find and vaccinate everyone whos had direct contact with a sick person „ the first ringŽ „ and then contacts of those people, too, to break the chain of infection.Last month, 11-year-old German Umba and her 6-year-old brother lost their father to Ebola. Both were vaccinated. But a shot alone doesnt end the worry. U.N. workers monitor the children several times a day for fevers, an early symptom, until the incubation period passes.Friday, WHO emergency response chief Peter Salama said many people vaccinated in Mbandaka received the shots more than 10 days ago, meaning theyre now protected „ the vaccine has had time to kick in.Finding people who need vaccination is much harder in the remote area of Iboko, where a new case was just reported. Shoddy infrastruc-ture adds to the challenge.The roads are so bad that even if a person gets vaccinated it can be too late and they can still die,Ž said Rosy Boyekwa Yamba, a regional representative for the Ministry of Health in Mbandaka.It can take days to travel just 100 miles to reach remote areas where Ebola still is spreading. The vaccine must be kept at a temperature of minus 76 to minus 112 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 60 to minus 80 degrees Celsius), and can only be kept in mobile freezers for up to seven days.Vaccine raises hopes, doubts in CongoAt a glanceThe vaccine was found highly promising in testing a few years ago, when the epidemic in West Africa killed more than 11,000 people between 2014 and 2016. A boy sits in a tree June 1 in a neighborhood where three people died of Ebola last month in Mbandaka, Congo. For the “ rst time since the Ebola virus was identi“ ed more than 40 years ago, a vaccine has been dispatched to front-line health workers in an attempt to combat the epidemic from the onset.

** A10 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Washington County News HEALTH By Holly Zachariah More Content NowCIRCLEVILLE, Ohio „ As the man with the handful of tiny needles moved closer, Sarah Downs nervousness grew with his every step. She rocked back and forth in her plastic chair. She fidgeted. She bounced a leg. She was there in the meeting room of the Pickaway Area Recovery Services (PARS) voluntarily, yet she still was unsure about what her friends had told her: that the acupuncture she was about to experience would ease the anxiety and fear that consumes her mind as she journeys through recovery from heroin and methamphetamine addictions. Kenneth JimmyŽ Laux, a chiropractor and certified acupuncturist, knelt beside Downs and pierced each of her ears with five needles. As he did so, he explained what specific spot the needle stick was hitting and how it would help. Certain spots calm nerves and control anger, others deal with sadness and depression. Still more affect a persons fight or flightŽ response and will power. Downs, 38, hoped the treatment worked. Celebrating three months sober this time around, she still is trying to get control of her feelings without using drugs. You feel really anxious all the time, just nervous. Its a scary time,Ž she said. This time, Im trying anything possible to stay clean.Ž She was one of eight women who sat for 30 minutes with the needles poking from their ears at this session, all part of a new program that includes Laux and his acupuncture as one of the weapons in the fight to beat addiction. It came about because Pickaway County Common Pleas Judge P. Randall Knece had earlier this year heard about auricular acupuncture (utilizing only external ear points) from a recovery home where he sometimes sends defendants from his court. He asked Laux if it was true that this practice could help those overcoming addictions. Laux said yes. He is certified by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association and uses its method. Knece said that after nearly a quarter-century on the bench, he never thought he would be talking about using acupuncture to help drug users who came before him. But nothing stays the same, and he said he now sees it as a challenge to find new ways to balance justice and fix society. You cant just lock people up and expect them to change. You have to do something,Ž he said. We just cant do it like we always did.Ž Knece has pledged almost $13,000 to help cover the $55 cost per treatment for those in recovery who dont have Medicaid or private insurance. Knece underwent acupuncture himself because he wanted see how it felt. He winced a little as the first two needles went in, and laughed as he told the eight women gathered around the tables „ some of whom he had earlier sent to prison or county jail „ that they lied to him when they said it didnt hurt. Since mid-April, Laux visits PARS twice a week and has given 35 treatments to 15 people. Tiera Rapp, 43, is in recovery from pain pill and heroin addictions. She has had four treatments and is among those who told Downs how much they helped. Im way more mellow,Ž Rapp said about the effects of the acupuncture. It helps me get out of my own head.Ž It isnt intended to be a solo treatment, just one part of a continuum of care that includes cognitive-behavioral therapy, Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings, counseling sessions and all things that go along with successful sobriety. „ Email Holly Zachariah at hzachariah@ dispatch.com. ACUPUNCTURE helping addicts with recovery Additional resourcesIn 2014, an estimated 1.9 million people had an opioid use disorder related to prescription pain relievers and an estimated 586,000 had an opioid use disorder related to heroin use.

He won Sonoma in 2011. Shouldnt a team trifecta get more hoopla?Probably, considering it had been 10 years since a NASCAR team swept the top three “ nishing positions in a Cup race. The Clint Bowyer-Kevin HarvickKurt Busch sweep at Michigan was a feat to recognize and something that will likely be memorialized in the Stewart-Haas team shop (though a photo of the three rain-soaked cars sitting behind a red ” ag isnt exactly dramatic). Its also testament to how much things can change in 10 years.Where are they now?The last team sweep came courtesy of Roush Racing, at Dover in the fall of 2008: Winner Greg Bif” e (now retired), runner-up Matt Kenseth (semi-retired) and third-place Carl Edwards (retired and seemingly off the grid somewhere). Of those in the rest of the top 10 that day, only Harvick, Bowyer and Jimmie Johnson are still in Cup racing, while just seven of that days top 20 are still full-timers.

In both cases, his wins (Martinsville, snow-delayed; Michigan, rain-shortened) were affected by weather, and preceded an off weekend. Bowyers crew chief, Mike Bugarewicz, made note of it Sunday. Im pretty pumped about winning (before) off weekends, because the next one is Indy, the (last) one is Homestead,Ž he said.2.

The Pistons hired the NBA coach of the year finalist Monday, hoping he can help the three-time NBA championship franchise regularly reach the post-season and eventually compete again for titles.

Vieira had been linked with the Arsenal job after Arsene Wenger stepped down last month but will now return to his native France for his first coach-ing job in Europe. The Associated Press By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. „ Phil Mickelson is run-ning out of time.Mickelson doesnt need to be reminded that this is his 27th appearance in the U.S. Open, more than any of the 156 players at Shin-necock Hills. He wouldnt want to be reminded that 65 players „ including the last four major champi-ons „ were not even born when Mickelson was low amateur in his first U.S. Open in 1990 at Medinah.I just cant believe that time has flown by so fast,Ž he said Monday.The desire hasnt changed, only the emphasis.Mickelson didnt win a major until he was 33 and in his 12th full year on the PGA Tour. Back then, any major would have sufficed. A year after he won the 2004 Masters, he added a PGA Champi-onship. And then in 2013 at Muirfield, he surprised even himself by capturing the British Open. One to go for the career Grand Slam, the one that has vexed him the most.He has more runnerup finishes in the U.S. Open than the other three majors combined. So when Mickelson was asked if he had unfinished business at Shinnecock Hills, he paused briefly before delivering an obvi-ous answer.I can say that a few times in this tourna-ment,Ž he said.It helps that Mickelson has a strong history at Shinnecock Hills, which he refers to as one of his favorite courses.He had a one-shot lead with two holes to play in 2004 when Retief Goosen made a 12-foot birdie putt in the group behind him on the par-5 16th, and then Mickelson put his tee shot in the bunker on the par-3 17th, blasted out to 5 feet and took all the air out of the Hamptons when he three-putted for double bogey.In his first U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in 1995, he was one shot out of the lead going into the final round, closed with a 74 and finished four shots behind. More than a tough final round was playing the par-5 16th hole in 6 over for the week.If I played that hole even, I could have won,Ž Mickelson said.This is not a time for Mickelson, who turns 48 on Saturday, to be looking behind.He doesnt want to look forward, either.Leftys lookMickelson trying not to look ahead at another US Open chance By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressPARIS „ Rafael Nadal was trying to make the point that time stops for no man.You cant fight against the age,Ž he said, and you cant fight against the watch. The watch keeps going, always.ŽNo arguing against that sentiment. Still, it is rather remarkable how Nadal, a French Open champion yet again a week past his 32nd birthday, and Federer, who turns 37 in less than two months, seem to stay forever young. Nadals 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Dominic Thiem, whos 24, in Sundays final gave the Spaniard an 11th title „ yes, 11th „ at Roland Garros and 17th Grand Slam trophy overall. At the previous major tourna-ment, the Australian Open in January, Federer won his record 20th such championship.At the Slam before that, the U.S. Open last September, Nadal was the last man standing.And so on. Federer or Nadal has won each of the past six major tournaments, equaling their second-longest stretch of dual dominance. Their other six-Slam streak came from 2008-09. Their best run was combining to win 11 consecu-tive majors starting at the 2005 French Open, when Nadal col-lected No. 1.Sometimes, I see many, many players „ even good play-ers, top players „ they go on the court against Rafa on clay, or Roger on hard court or any other surface, and you can almost see that they dont really believe 100 percent that they can win,Ž said Robin Soderling, who pulled off French Open upsets of Nadal in 2009, and Federer in 2010. They hope that they will win, but they dont really believe in it.ŽIts quite a different scene in the womens game these days. Simona Haleps 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 win against Sloane Stephens in Saturdays final in Paris made the No. 1-ranked Romanian the seventh female champion at the past seven majors. Part of that probably can be traced to Serena Williams 16-month absence from the sports four most prestigious tournaments because she became a mother.Serena being out for the last couple of years has left the door ajar. And theres been a few young ladies that have come through and had some victories,Ž said Haleps coach, Darren Cahill. Over the next two or three years, weve got a lot of strength and depth in the womens game.Ž Halep was a first-time major champion, as were Caroline Wozniacki (2018 Australian Open), Stephens (2017 U.S. Open) and Jelena Ostapenko (2017 French Open).We start to believe that anyone can win it,Ž Halep said.As much as things change, they stay the same at the top of mens tennis. In Mondays rankings, Nadal is No. 1, Federer is No. 2.Ten years ago, it was Rafa and Roger,Ž Juan Martin del Potro said after losing to Nadal in the French Open semifi-nals, nine years after he lost to Federer at that stage, and now its always the same.ŽDel Potros triumph at the 2009 U.S. Open „ he got past Nadal in the semifinals, then Federer in the final „ stands alongside Marin Cilics title at the same tournament as the only two examples of some-one other than Federer, Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray or Stan Wawrinka claiming a major over the past 13 years.Of the past 53, Nadal has won 17, Federer 16, Djokovic 12, and Murray and Wawrinka three apiece.But at the moment, Murray is still recovering from a hip oper-ation in January and his exact date for a return is unknown. Wawrinka is working his way back from knee surgery and lost in the first round at Roland Garros. Djokovics is not yet at his best after an elbow proce-dure; he lost in the quarterfinals in Paris to a guy who never had won a Grand Slam match before this French Open.So that leaves Federer and Nadal, healthy and talented as ever. This is perfection. They are the best players in the world and are proving that even when your body is not as young as it was, when one still has the drive and is well prepared, nothing replaces talent and strong will,Ž said French Open tournament director Guy Forget, a former top-10 player and French Davis Cup and Fed Cup captain. The young players are still lagging behind.ŽAnd at Wimbledon, where play begins July 2, well find out whether Rafa and Roger can keep figuring out how to successfully fight against the watch.ŽTwo for the agesNadal, Federer ght the watch, keep winning SlamsRafael Nadal celebrates winning the mens “ nal match of the French Open tennis tournament against Dominic Thiem at the Roland Garros stadium Sunday in Paris.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, June 13, 2018 B1CELEBRATE By Diane M. RobinsonThe News | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comWASHINGTON AND HOLMES COUNTIES … Making his mark one project at a time is just what County Engineer Cliff Knauer does every day. Knauer, a civil engineer, is employed by Dewberry Engineers and has been the engineer of record for Washington County since 1998 and Holmes County since 2010. To say that he is busy is a massive understatement. Between never ending emails and non-stop phone calls, Knauer not only designs roads, bridges, buildings, and boat ramps, he also looks for grant opportunities that each county can take advantage of to improve all of the things listed above. A native of Miami, Knauer relocated to Northwest Florida in 1987 to pursue his degree in Civil Engineering from Florida State University in 1992. He began his tenure with Washington County just six short years later. Knauer says he wants to leave something behind that future generations will see and use. It is cool to leave things behind you after death,Ž he said. Things that I have designed will be used by future generations far into the future, its really cool to know that.Ž Some of Knauers favorite projects in each county have had great environmental improvements, such as, Holmes Countys Northride Lane paving project and the dock built at Hightower Springs in Vernon. Northride Lane saw much of the clay from the previous dirt road washing into the wetlands when it would rain. Knauer designed a retention pond at the end of the road to catch the run off which made a large impact on the health of the wetlands. Hightower Springs is no longer filling up with clay and creek water from big ruts that had been worn into the ground from visitors walking between the boat ramp and spring for many years. The spring has been cleaned out and is now so clear that the spring itself can be seen bubbling under the water. Knauer says he owes his success to finding funding for the counties to complete projects. Ive found the key to my success is chasing, finding and getting funding for each county I work with to complete projects,Ž he said. Knauer not only works with Washington and Holmes Counties, he is also the engineer of record for Walton County, the Towns of Wausau, Defuniak Springs and Freeport. When Knauer isnt busy working on all of his many projects, he is an active father of two, daughter Emma, 13 and son Jake, 7. His after work activities include playing with his band and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. A Day in the LifeŽ is a series meant to highlight the behind-the-scenes work that makes each role served in our community vital to its success. Each month in this spot, we hope to give an insight into a profession or passion that helps celebrate the often unnoticed and unsung efforts of those who often make the largest difference.

** B2 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Ken SweetThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. and global markets rose modestly on Monday, as investors made preparations for President Donald Trumps meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.European investors also focused on Italys new government, and its future using the euro. The Dow Jones indus-trial average rose 5.78 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 25,322.31. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 2.97 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,782.00 and the Nasdaq compos-ite rose 14.41 points, or 0.2 percent, to 7,659.93.Investors spent most of Monday waiting for Tuesdays meeting between Trump and Kim, aimed at settling a standoff over the Norths nuclear arsenal. North Korea has reportedly said it is willing to deal away its entire nuclear arsenal if the United States provides it with reliable security assurances and other benefits. But many say Kims government is unlikely to give up weap-ons that help guarantee its survival.If successful, the meeting would lower geopolitical tensions in an area that involves three of the worlds larg-est economies: South Korea, Japan and China.Theres a lot of poten-tial volatility that could come this week: we have the Trump-Kim summit and the central bank meetings,Ž said Ryan Larson, head of U.S. equity trading at RBC Capital Markets. A lot of the tone for this week will be set out in Trumps meeting with Kim.ŽThe Federal Reserve will start a two-day meeting on interest rates on Tuesday, wrap-ping up on Wednesday. Investors expect the nations central bank to raise interest rates from their current level of 1.75 percent to 2 percent, but most attention will be on how many rate hikes Fed officials are considering doing later this year.Investors showed little concern over the swipes that Trump took at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend and Monday.Trump roiled a week-end meeting of the Group of Seven major industrial economies by agreeing to a group statement only to rapidly withdraw from it while complaining about Trudeaus criticism of his tariff threats.Stocks rise slightly ahead of TrumpKim meetingBy Anick Jesdanun and Ryan NakashimaThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ If technology giants like Facebook, Google and Amazon face a common threat to their dominance, it probably lies in a single word: trust.In some respects, these companies are riding high. They have woven them-selves into the fabric of our daily lives, making their services indispensable for daily tasks like keeping in touch with family and friends, watching TV and buying cat food. Rev-enues are up and profits are soaring.But theyve also drawn the attention of regula-tors in Europe and the U.S. thanks to carelessness with consumer data and other problems. Facebooks leaky data controls, for instance, let Cambridge Analytica mine the profiles of up to 87 million people in an attempt to swing elections. The social network has also had to beef up manual over-sight to clamp down on the spread of fake news.Googles YouTube has likewise been implicated in the spread of political con-spiracy theories. Not long ago, Amazons alwayslistening Echo speaker inadvertently recorded a familys conversation at home „ and then sent the recording to someone else.Some of these issues are systemic; others may be little more than the growing pains of new technologies. What they all fuel, though, is a sense that technology may not always warrant the implicit faith we place in it.Companies have to realize that trust isnt digital,Ž says Gerd Leonhard, a futurist and author of Technology vs. Humanity.Ž Trust is not something that you down-load. Trust is a feeling. Its a perception.ŽTrust looms large in modern life. We still get on airplanes even though they sometimes come apart in flight We go to hospitals even though medical errors sometimes kill patients. These services are too important to live with-out, despite the occasional disastrous error.But those industries are also heavily regulated because of the risks involved. Technology companies, by comparison, are largely unconstrained.Trust issues could be especially acute for technology companies, since their services are effectively omnipresent yet largely inscrutable. You cant audit Googles algorithm to see why its giving you certain search results the way you can watch your bank balance. You just have to trust that the company is upholding its promises.Yet so far, such concerns dont loom large for most consumers. That trust is eroded, but the uncomfortable thing is no one really cares,Ž says Scott Galloway, a New York University marketing professor. As long as they trust that technology will improve their lives, they dont appear to care about the other stuff.ŽA 2016 survey from the Pew Research Center, for instance, found that only 9 percent of users were very confidentŽ that social media companies could protect their data. More than half had little or no confidence. Yet a Janu-ary survey from Pew found that 69 percent of U.S. adults use social media, unchanged from 2016.Shaky consumer confi-dence can still limit the time people spend on Facebook or curb their enthusiasm for new boundary-pushing services. Amazon, for instance, now wants its delivery people to leave packages inside your home or car. Thats not going to fly if youre worried about Amazon exploiting its access to your private spaces.But tech giants have fewer worries about consumers defecting to their rivals, in part because they each do their best to lock users into their array of complementary apps and services. That doesnt stop them from sniping at one another, of course. Apple, for instance, has emphasized its privacy protections to highlight its differences with Facebook and Google.Techs trust paradoxBy Martin CrutsingerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Another interest rate increase is all but certain when the Federal Reserve meets this week. Whats not so sure is whether the vigorous U.S. economy will lead the Fed to accelerate its rate hikes in the months ahead „ a move that could raise the risk of a recession.When it last met in May, the Fed left its short-term rate unchanged. But it noted that inflation was edging near its 2 percent target after years of remaining undesir-ably low. Should inflation eventually pick up, the Fed might move to tighten credit more aggressively. The challenge would be to do so without slowing growth so much as to cause a downturn.Investors are eagerly awaiting the updated eco-nomic forecasts the Fed will issue when its meeting ends Wednesday. Among other things, the forecasts will show whether the policymakers still foresee a total of three rate increases for 2018, as they predicted three months ago, or whether they now envision four. The Fed has so far raised its key rate once this year, in March.A gradual rise in inflation is coinciding with new-found economic strength. After years in which the economy expanded at roughly a tepid 2 percent annually, growth could top 3 percent this year. Consumer and business spending is powering the economy, in part a result of the tax cut President Donald Trump pushed through Congress late last year.With employers hiring at a solid pace month after month, unemployment has reached 3.8 percent. Not since 1969 has the jobless rate been lower.The Fed will probably note the economys strength in the statement it will issue Wednesday. Further clarity could follow, when Chairman Jerome Powell holds his second news conference since succeeding Janet Yellen in February.Beginning in 2008 in the midst of the financial crisis, the Fed kept its key rate unchanged at a record low near zero for seven years. It then raised rates once in 2015, once in 2016 and three times in 2017. Wednesdays expected quarter-point rate increase will raise the Feds benchmark rate to a range of 1.75 percent to 2 percent.Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics, said he thinks stronger growth and rising inflation will lead the Fed to raise rates four times this year and four more in 2019.We are going to get a period of rip-roaring growth that is going to push unemployment down to close to 3 percent, a level we have only been at twice in our history,Ž Zandi said. That means the Fed is going to have to start step-ping harder on the brakes.ŽThe Fed aims to achieve its mandates of maximizing employment and stabilizing prices by low-ering rates to spur growth during times of economic weakness and raising rates to slow growth if the economy threatens to overheat. When the Fed tightens credit, it aims to do so without derailing the economy. But if it miscal-culates and overdoes the credit tightening, it can trigger a recession.The economic expansion has survived for nine years and is now the second-longest in history. It will become the longest if it lasts past June 2019, at which point it would surpass the expansion that lasted from March 1991 to March 2001.While many economists think the current expan-sion will exceed the 1990s streak, some worry about what might occur once the impact of the tax cuts begin to fade and the Feds grad-ual rate hikes begin to curb growth. Diane Swonk, chief economist at Grant Thornton, suggested that the economy could experi-ence a growth recession,Ž in which the gross domes-tic product slows so much that unemployment starts to rise.In the meantime, some Fed watchers are revising their forecasts to predict four rather than three rate increases this year. Even so, the CME Group says trading in the futures market still suggests a slight majority envisioning three increases for 2018.The Feds pace of rate hikes for the rest of the year could end up reflect-ing a tug of war between a sturdy economy and the risks to growth, including from a potential trade war that could break out between the United States and such key trading partners as China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico. All those countries have vowed to retaliate against any U.S. tariffs with their own pen-alties against U.S. goods.Fed watchers await rate forecast with a hike all but certainDont trust the tech giants? You likely rely on them anyway BUSINESS Commuters look at their phones June 1 in Los Angeles. Tech giants like Facebook, Google and Amazon ask us to trust them with ever-more sensitive aspects of our lives. But theres a catch: If they p rove unw orthy of that trust, the repercussions are scant and alternatives seem hard to “ nd. [JAE C. HONG/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO]

He earned a mechanical engineer certification and worked for Department of Transportation for 35 years. When he retired, he continued as a consultant and project engineer and helped establish Harper and Buchanan Engineering Firm in Panama City.

[DIANE M. ROBINSON | THE NEWS] Cancer is not new to our family. My wife is a breast cancer survivor, as is her sister, who has been battling stage four cancer for the past four years. My father died of multiple myeloma, cancer of the bone marrow, when he was 53. He bestowed on me a life-long memory of courage, faith and grace. I took him to visit his friends the week before he died. He was too weak to remain standing. He greeted each with a cheerful smile and his natural good humor. But I could see the sadness written in their faces when they saw the seriousness of his condition. My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer two weeks before Christmas. She and my son still have three children, ages 17, 16 and 15, at home. Life becomes precious when we are faced with our mortality and the mortality of those we love. My son and daughter-in-law are giving it their best, and hoping for the best with chemotherapy and radiation. But they know they are not in control. They are trusting God and celebrating each day. Knowing that thousands are traveling a similar journey, I wanted to share a couple of her posts on Facebook that have inspired me. She recently wrote, Today was a great day.

EVENTSFrom Page B5 A Colorado Christian baker, who refused to design a cake for a couples same-sex wedding in 2012, had his violation of Colorado law overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this week. In a 7-2 decision the Court ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commissions consideration of the case was inconsistent with the States obligation of religious neutrality.Ž In 2012, Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips refused to design a cake for David Mullins and Charlie Craigs same-sex marriage because that his Christian faith prohibited him from doing so. Mullins and Craig later filed a complaint with the CCRC, which found Phillips had discriminated against the couple. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion stating, The reason and motive for the bakers refusal were based on his sincere religious beliefs and convictions. The Civil Rights Commissions treatment of his case has some elements of a clear and impermissible hostility toward the sincere religious beliefs that motivated his objection.Ž According to legal experts, the Court reaffirmed there is no general constitutional exemption from civil rights laws because a person has a religious or philosophical objection to them.
