The loan is set to be paid off within a year with revenue from fees generated at the plant itself.With the system back up and running, it will allow for area sewer pumping businesses to have a local facility to use rather than driving to the closest plant in Port St. Joe, 90 miles away.Also at the meeting, the council accepted a $31,685 bid from Mainstreet to do facility improvements at the Sportsplex. The council also approved to advertise bids for new CPA firm for audits. Vernon City Council meets the first and third Monday at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 2808 Yellow Jacket Road.Vernon accepts county loan agreement A short time later, Holmes County Sheriffs Office contacted WCSO investigators reporting a man had contacted their office regarding the incident.

An altercation ensued and Boles admitted to repeatedly striking the victim with an axe handle.Investigators searched Boles vehicle and found a plastic bag containing methamphetamine and an axe handle, having several areas covered in blood.Boles was arrested and charged with aggravated battery causing bodily harm and possession of methamphetamine.I urge each of you to be aware of your surroundings and the people you are associated with,Ž said Washington County Sheriff Kevin Crews. We are very fortunate this did not have a different ending.Ž BOLESFrom Page A1 Fort Walton Beach Democrat Mary Jeanne GigiŽ Gibson opened a campaign account Friday to run against Gainer in Senate District 2, which is made up of Bay, Holmes, Jackson, Walton, Wash-ington and part of Okaloosa counties, according to the state Division of Elections website.Gainer, who qualified for the race Monday, had raised $176,100 for his re-election bid as of May 31.

News Service Florida contributed to this report QUALIFYFrom Page A1 By Lloyd Dunkelberger and Tom Urban News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE Flor-idas qualifying period for hundreds of state and local offices began Monday, signaling the start of what will be a pivotal election year in the state.At the top of the ticket will be an open governors race, with term-limited Gov. Rick Scott running for a U.S. Senate seat. The race to replace Scott is expected to draw at least seven major candidates, including two Republicans and five Democrats.Floridians will also get a chance to vote in the Cabinet races for attorney general, agriculture commissioner and state chief financial officer.In the 40-member state Senate, 22 seats are up for election this year. All 120 state House of Representatives seats are also up for election.Qualifying began at noon Monday and will run through noon Friday.Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine was at the state Division of Elections on Monday morning, filing his paper-work in preparation for the Aug. 28 Democratic primary for governor.I know that people in northern Florida, cen-tral Florida and southern Florida ƒ one thing that they really want is some-one that has a history of getting things done,Ž Levine said.Levine, who was busi-nessman in the cruise industry before he ran for mayor, also filed a disclo-sure form noting he has a net worth of $133 million. He has spent close to $9 million of his own money through May on his cam-paign. It has given him an edge in fundraising and television advertising in the Democratic field.But while opening a campaign office in Tallahassee, Levine downplayed those advantages, saying he believes its personal contact by him or by his suppor ters in his field offices across the state that will make the difference.Its boots on the ground. Its talking to people,Ž he said.And Levine is not likely to be the wealthiest candi-date running for governor, with real estate investor Jeff Greene of Palm Beach expected to join the Democratic primary. Greene has a net worth of $3.8 billion, according to Forbes.Other Democratic gubernatorial candidates who qualified on the first day included former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham of Tallahassee, who filed her paperwork on Friday, and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Orlando-area businessman Chris King and Greene are expected to qualify later this week.Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam is expected to face U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis of Palm Coast in the Aug. 28 Republican primary for governor. Qualifying for the three Cabinet races also began on Monday, with former state Sen. Jeremy Ring, D-Margate, filing to run for chief financial officer. He will face Jimmy Patro-nis, a former Republican state lawmaker who was appointed to the Cabinet by Scott.In the race for attorney general, where Republi-can Pam Bondi is stepping down because of term limits, Rep. Sean Shaw, D-Tampa, qualified for the race.Rep. Matt Caldwell, R-North Fort Myers, qualified to try to replace Putnam as agriculture commissioner.In the Legislature, as of late Monday afternoon, nine Senate incumbents had qualified for their seats, including Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, who is in line to become Senate president after the 2020 general election.Sen. Dana Young, R-Tampa, also qualified on Monday, and she is expected to face House Minority Leader Janet Cruz, D-Tampa, in what will be one of the more heavily contested Senate races in the fall.Dozens of incumbents also qualified in House races on Monday, includ-ing Rep.

Ronda Storms, a Valrico Republican, on Monday qualified in House District 59, which is represented by Rep. Ross Spano, R-Dover, who is running for Congress.Michael Grieco, a Dem-ocrat running in House District 113 in Miami-Dade County, was also at the state Division of Elec-tions on Monday morning.I wanted to see it first-hand. Theres something about coming up here and filing your paperwork personally,Ž said Grieco, who is seeking to replace Rep. David Richardson, a Miami Beach Democrat who is running for Congress.Grieco noted the Aug. 28 primary election is not far away, with absentee ballots scheduled to be mailed to voters on July 24. It sneaks up on you pretty quickly,Ž he said.Qualifying starts sprint to electionsAt the top of the ticket will be an open governors race, with term-limited Gov.

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Ameri cas military forces are preparing for the multiple threats posed by climate change. According to the latest report from the Defense Department, 50 percent of U.S. military sites have already been affected by floods, wildfires, drought and other weather events made more extreme by rising global temperatures. While the Naval Support Activity Center off Thomas Drive and Tyndall Air Force Base were not specifically named, they fall into the areas of concern for the Pentagon given their proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. Much of this can be charted. As sea level rises, Navy bases on the coast are threatened. Bases in dry regions are threatened by drought as fire seasons get longer. The Defense Department looks strictly at its mission and changes in climate affect natural security in several ways,Ž the report stated. With sea levels rising twice as fast as 25 years ago, a previous Defense Department report found that 56 Navy bases are at risk with about 3 feet of sea level rise. The report itemized a few notable examples: Huge temperature fluctuations have caused disruption in the Arctic to a radar station on the North Slope. Damages to the runways seawall have caused $47 million in repairs. In 2012, the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado threatened Peterson Air Force Base and the Air Force Academy, and it cost over $16 million to fight. Climate chaos was on full display on Jan. 2 of this year when Anchorage, Alaska, was warmer than Ocala. The high in Anchorage was 49 degrees compared to 44 degrees in Panama City. The Earth just had its hottest four years in recorded history, according to NASA and NOAA. As a result, 2017 saw a number of record-breaking weather disasters including California wildfires and three hurricanes. Hurricane Harvey caused record-breaking flooding in Texas, while Hurricane Irma hit wide swaths of Florida. Renewable energy is fast becoming the most economical energy source. Last year was the first time that a reduction in carbon emissions was due more to renewable energy and conservation than from switching from coal to natural gas. The corporate sector is leading the way to green energy. In fact, 71 of the Fortune 100 companies have set a public target for using more energy with 21 of them planning to use 100 percent renewable energy. Renewable energy now represents 18 percent of all U.S. generation, double the rate a decade ago. Since 2010, the cost of new solar photovoltaic output declined by 70 percent. The cost of wind power declined by 25 percent, reports the International Energy Agency. Also, battery prices have declined by 40 percent since 2010. It is against this environmental and entrepreneurial backdrop that the military is moving forward in preparing for climate change, in step with the civilian population. This guest editorial was originally published in a sister paper in Gatehouse Media.Military takes on climate change ANOTHER VIEW You wonder why Fox News is Number One in cable? Its because CNN, MSNBC, NBC and the rest are so relentlessly negative about Donald Trump they force people to watch Fox to find out the truth about the growing economy or the historically low unemployment rates for blacks. Take this weeks Singapore Summit. No matter what President Trump accomplished in Singapore in his face-to-face meeting with North Koreas Kim Jong Un, for Joe, Mika and their fellow foreign policy experts in the media, it was not enough. Or it was too much. Or Trump was naive or stupid. Or he gave away too much. Or he didnt ask Little Rocket ManŽ about his gulags. Or he was just trying to win a Nobel Peace Prize. My favorite complaint about the Singapore Summit from liberals was that by merely meeting with Kim Jong Un, President Trump gave a thug the legitimacy he didnt deserve. As if American presidents havent met with thugs like Kim Jong Un since the beginning of time. Just two years ago Barrack Obama and a delegation of a thousand staffers, insiders and reporters flew into Havana to slobber all over Raul Castro and the ghost of his brother Fidel. The in-bed-with-Obama embedded media loved Obamas move. They called it historic. They called it a Berlin Wall moment a step toward the liberation of the Cuban people. The mainstream media never complained that Obama didnt ask Comrade Raul to be nicer to the impoverished people living under his communist dictatorship or release the gay Cubans held in his prisons. Not a peep from the MSM. Not even crickets. Trump, on the other hand, cant win with the mainstream media. One month theyre saying his tough rhetoric about North Korea is going to start World War III. A month or two later theyre complaining his Singapore statement wasnt strong enough and he was too soft on Kim Jong Un. It reminds me of the way the liberal media treated my father back in the 1980s when he was calling the USSR The Evil EmpireŽ and trying to meet with Soviet leaders about nuclear arms control. The mainstream media and the foreign policy establishment were constantly pushing my dad to hurry-up and meet with the USSRs leaders, who kept dying on him until Mikhail Gorbachev came along. The media of the day wanted my dad to sign a deal in Reykjave k with Gorbachev, ASAP. They wanted him to sign away Star Wars, take our missiles out of Europe give up whatever it took to make the Soviets happy and avert Armageddon. My father stuck to his guns. He ignored the impatient liberal media, the foreign policy expertsŽ and some of his own staffers and within a few years the Berlin Wall was down and the USSR was history. My father learned that negotiating successfully one-on-one with an enemy like Gorbachev is a process that takes time. The two leaders didnt accomplish or sign anything at those meetings, but ultimately my father and Gorbachev developed a liking for each other. But that relationship didnt stop my father from telling Gorbachev at their first meeting that either you come to the table and negotiate in good faith or well jack up our military spending and bankrupt you, which we eventually did in the long run. Trumps message to Kim Jong Un was similar, only blunter and much tougher either youll come to the table or youll cease to exist. Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump both used the negotiating tools they had in their hip pockets. In the long run Trump may or may not be as successful as my father. Were still in the first days of a long process, but the biased media are impatient and irrational. They want everything settled yesterday and the Korean Peninsula denuked tomorrow. But even if it turns out the way they want, theyll figure out some way to give the credit to Nancy Pelosi, Barrack Obama or Dennis Rodman long before they give it to President Trump.Why Fox News is Number OneAt long last, the meeting bet ween President Donald Trump and North Koreas Kim Jong Un was held in Singapore. The end result depends upon whom you ask. Both sides seemed to claim a resounding victory; Sean Hannity insisted that North Korea agreed to full denuclearization (it did not), and North Korean media claimed that Trump agreed to an end to sanctions (heres hoping he didnt). In reality, the meeting produced little: a vague document indicating that talks will continue in the interest of peace and denuclearization. There were also reportedly promises made by each leader, including a missile site shutdown by Kim and the suspension of U.S.-South Korean joint military exercises by Trump. Many on the left have found themselves adrift in the messaging wilderness. On the one hand, they support diplomacy and want to avoid a catastrophic war. On the other hand, they oppose President Trumps reckless approach to the process of negotiations to date. These positions do not need to be mutually exclusive. Diplomacy should always be Americas first, best choice for resolving crises on the world stage. It is good indeed, the only good position to support diplomacy now given the catastrophic escalatory potential of a war on the Korean Peninsula. Those who clamor for war would put the lives of thousands of American troops and millions of our allies citizens in the region at risk. Preferring diplomacy to conflict, however, does not require anyone to support this meetings outcomes or the conduct of the man who is d riving them. For one thing, President Trump conducted his summit with no thought to optics. The Kim family has sought a direct conversation with the United States for years, hoping to portray themselves as equal powers on the world stage. President Trump handed them that victory without hesitation and whats more, he showered Kim (a dictator who starves, imprisons, and executes his people) with praise both at the meeting and in follow-up interviews. It is hard not to contrast the images of Trump giving his classic thumbs up to Kim or saluting a North Korean general with those taken just days before wherein he sits crossedarmed and petulant before our democratically-elected G7 allies.Supporting Diplomacy but Opposing Trumps Summit Michael Reagan G r a h a m F W e s t Graham F.

** A8 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 | Washington County News NATION & WORLDBy Nomaan MerchantThe Associated PressMcALLEN, Texas „ Inside an old warehouse in South Texas, hundreds of children wait away from their parents in a series of cages created by metal fencing. One cage had 20 children inside. Scattered about are bottles of water, bags of chips and large foil sheets intended to serve as blankets.One teenager told an advocate who visited that she was helping care for a young child she didnt know because the childs aunt was somewhere else in the facility. She said she had to show others in her cell how to change the girls diaper.The U.S. Border Patrol on Sunday allowed reporters to briefly visit the facility where it holds families arrested at the southern U.S. border, responding to new criti-cism and protests over the Trump administrations zero toleranceŽ policy and resulting separation of families. More than 1,100 people were inside the large, dark facility thats divided into separate wings for unaccompanied children, adults on their own, and mothers and fathers with children. The cages in each wing open out into common areas to use portable restrooms. The overhead lighting in the warehouse stay on around the clock.Reporters were not allowed by agents to interview any of the detainees or take photos.Nearly 2,000 children have been taken from their parents since Attor-ney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy, which directs Homeland Security officials to refer all cases of illegal entry into the United States for prosecution. Church groups and human rights advocates have sharply criticized the policy, calling it inhumane.Stories have spread of children being torn from their parents arms, and parents not being able to find where their kids have gone. A group of congressional lawmakers visited the same facility Sunday and were set to visit a longer-term shelter holding around 1,500 children „ many of whom were separated from their parents.Those kids inside who have been separated from their parents are already being traumatized,Ž said Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon, who was denied entry earlier this month to childrens shelter. It doesnt matter whether the floor is swept and the bedsheets tucked in tight.ŽIn Texas Rio Grande Valley, the busiest corridor for people trying to enter the U.S., Border Patrol officials argue that they have to crack down on migrants and separate adults from children as a deterrent to others.When you exempt a group of people from the law ... that creates a draw,Ž said Manuel Padilla, the Border Patrols chief agent here. That creates the trends right here.ŽAgents running the holding facility „ generally known as UrsulaŽ for the name of the street its on „ said everyone detained is given adequate food, access to showers and laundered clothes, and medical care. People are supposed to move through the facility quickly. Under U.S. law, children are required to be turned over within three days to shelters funded by the Department of Health and Human Services.Padilla said agents in the Rio Grande Valley have allowed families with children under the age of 5 to stay together in most cases.An advocate who spent several hours in the facility Friday said she was deeply troubled by what she found.Michelle Brane, director of migrant rights at the Womens Refugee Commission, met with a 16-year-old girl who had been taking care of a young girl for three days. The teen and others in their cage thought the girl was 2 years old.She had to teach other kids in the cell to change her diaper,Ž Brane said.Brane said that after an attorney started to ask questions, agents found the girls aunt and reunited the two. It turned out that the girl was actually 4 years old. Part of the prob-lem was that she didnt speak Spanish, but Kiche, a language indigenous to Guatemala.She was so traumatized that she wasnt talking,Ž Brane said. She was just curled up in a little ball.ŽBrane said she also saw officials at the facility scold a group of 5-year-olds for playing around in their cage, telling them to settle down. There are no toys or books.But one boy nearby wasnt playing with the rest. According to Brane, he was quiet, clutching a piece of paper that was a photocopy of his mothers ID card.The government is literally taking kids away from their parents and leaving them in inappropriate conditions,Ž Brane said. If a parent left a child in a cage with no supervision with other 5-year-olds, theyd be held accountable.ŽHundreds of children held in Texas facilityNicole Hernandez, of the Mexican state of Guerrero, holds on to her mother as they wait with other families to request political asylum in the United States, on Wednesday across the border in Tijuana, Mexico. The U.S. Border Patrol on Sunday allowed reporters to brie” y visit the facility where it holds families arrested at the southern U.S. border, responding to criticism and protests over the Trump administrations zero toleranceŽ policy and resulting separation of families.

Pinot grigio is not made from white wine grapes: Normally, white wines are made from green grapes. Pinot grigio is the exception to this rule. Drink it while its young: It can go straight from the winery to your table because it matures quickly. The avor varies widely depending on where the grapes are grown: There are three main avor pro les: mineral and dry, fruity and dry, and fruity and sweet. By Charlene PetersMore Content NowDetrained in Florence, I was greeted by two tall, impossibly handsome men in Armani suits who swept open the passenger door of a sleek, black luxury sedan. These were not my gli amanti (lovers), nor were they drivers of an Uber Plus. Transportation is one of many luxurious amenities offered to guests of the Grand Amore Hotel and Spa in Florence, cradle of the Renaissance. Upon my ever-sostylish arrival at the property, I marveled at its breathtaking views over the rooftops of the city and the famed Il Duomo cathedral, a gigantic brick and marble edifice completed in the 1400s. I was similarly impressed by the hotels sensuous lobby design by Marianna Gagaliardi, a renowned architect. A smiling concierge ushered me to a room tricked out with my personally chosen favorite flowers, beverages, pillows and mattress, thanks to a pre-arrival form Id been asked to submit. Am I worthy of all this attentiveness? I was too tickled to care. I unpacked, freshened up a bit, and headed back outside. First stop: The Ponte Vecchio, a medieval stone bridge over the Arno River that has become the citys landmark shopping area, and is of course, thick with tourists, today as always. My next stop is not to be missed: the Galleria dellAccademia, one of Europes treasured art museums and home to Michelangelos magnificent David, among other sculptures and exhibits, including an early Stradivarius viola. Artistic greatness brings on hunger, so a lunch of bruschetta, salad and pasta „ all washed down with excellent Chianti „ was in order. Much renewed, I continued to take in the sights Decadence and delight in FlorenceTASTE OF TRAVELLove, Italian-styleMichelangelos Tomb in the Basilica of Santa Croce.

FOODand sounds of Florence until utter exhaustion brought me crawling back to my custom bed and pillow at the Grand Amore, where I napped. Thirty minutes later, I headed downstairs for a food and wine tasting at the hotels Cuore Caf Bistrot. My first sip, a 2014 Vernaccia di San Gimignano, was a crisp and lively white from Tuscany, and accompanied by foie gras topped with crunchy apple shavings. An expertly aerated glass of Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia, a deep red Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Livorno, was paired with spicy chocolate-covered pistachios and figs. I swear I heard angels singing. Primed for dinner, I headed off the beaten path to Caf Notte on Via della Caldaie, an inexpensive local hangout where all of the food tastes like a Florentine grandmother cooked it „ and she did!

GODSPEAK: Wow, lots of choices here. Obviously, Kurt Busch, but keep an eye on Denny Hamlin. KENS CALL: This one is almost too easy. Kurt Busch. If he doesnt soon enter the Stewart-Haas Trophy Collection Club, hell become quite testy.Summer has started. When it ends, whos the manŽ in the Cup Series? GODSPEAK: Kevin Harvick is up on that wheel. He is looking for a career-best season.

JIMMIE JOHNSON: Since there was no Cup race, we go back to this heat-up at Talladega. Bowyer was swept out of the race when Johnsons No. 48 Chevy went sideways in Turn 3.

This came to mind yet again last week. In better times, a Cup Series off week would inevitably be ignited with big news of some sort „ as if by design, it seemed. All we got last week was more news about illegal splitters and the resulting “ nes and suspensions. This time it was three crew chiefs (“ nes) and three car chiefs (suspensions) from Joe Gibbs Racing. Should they just let em go?Its probably a cant-win proposition. If you let em go and throw out 90 percent of the rulebook, some organization “ nds a huge advantage and, in Bill Frances words, stinks up the show.Ž But make this intense, ongoing, expensive effort to keep everyone on the straight-andnarrow, and you get constant press releases about suspensions and “ nes due to nonconforming splitters, etc. Pick your poison.Ken Willis, ken.willis @news-jrnl.comCUP SERIES: Toyota/Save Mart 350 SITE: Sonoma Raceway (1.99-mile road course) TV SCHEDULE: Friday, practice (Fox Sports 1, 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.).

The Vikings announced Monday theyll hold a halftime ceremony with Greens family during their Sept. 23 game against Buffalo. Green died at age 67 in 2016. His record over 10 sea-sons was 101-70, including eight trips to the playoffs. Only Bud Grant has more wins in franchise history. The Vikings won four divi-sion titles and reached the NFC championship game twice under his guidance, setting what was then the NFL single-season scoring record with 556 points in 1998. Hes the 24th member of the Vikings Ring of Honor.ST. PAUL, MINN. Minnesota gets regular PGA Tour stop in dealThe PGA Tour is putting Minnesota on its schedule for the first time under an agreement that elevates a PGA Tour Champions event. The 3M Open Fund will start its seven-year deal next summer. The 2019 dates for the 3M Open will not be announced until the PGA Tour reveals its full schedule in the coming weeks. Minnesota has hosted the 3M Championship on the PGA Tour Champions since 1993, and the final event for seniors will be Aug. 3-5 with Paul Goydos as the defending champion. The PGA Tour event will be held on the same course, the TPC Twin Cities.For years, the best golfers have come to Minnesota for big events, most recently the Ryder Cup at Hazel-tine in 2016. Hazeltine also hosted the PGA Champion-ship in 2009 and 2002, and it held the 1970 U.S. Open won by Tony Jacklin.ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIAFIFA charges Mexico after fans chant slurFIFA has opened disci-plinary proceedings against Mexico after its fans used an anti-gay slur during the teams 1-0 win over Germany. Some Mexican supporters chanted the slur when Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer prepared to take a goal kick in the 24th minute of Sundays game at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.Fans in Mexico use the chant to insult opposing goalkeepers as they take a goal kick. Widely consid-ered a slur, some argue there is no discriminatory intent. FIFA did not elaborate on the nature of the disciplinary proceedings and didnt say when a hearing would take place. Further updates will be communicated in due course. As proceedings are ongoing please understand we cannot comment further at this stage,Ž FIFA said in a statement. By Pete IacobelliThe Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. „ South Carolinas Frank Martin understood all along he might never get to coach Brian Bowen in a game and is just happy the 6-foot-7 forward whose name is part of the federal corruption case in college basketball had the chance to spend a few months with the Gamecocks.Bowen gave up his col-lege career to turn pro last month when the NCAA informed South Carolina he would miss at least all of next season „ his second full year on the bench „ because of his alleged involvement in the scandal.Am I surprised? No. Im realistic enough to understand when we took him that this was a possi-bility,Ž Martin said. Was I disappointed? Yes.Ž Bowen, from Saginaw, Michigan, transferred to South Carolina following his suspension from Louisville amid the federal probe after news of an alleged payment involving the Cardinals and his father to get him to join that school. Bowen could not play for the Gamecocks until at least the middle of December next season because of NCAA transfer rules.The governing body told the school the penalty for Bowen would at least include the rest of the next year, some-thing Martin knew meant Bowen had little option other than to turn pro.The NCAA kind of pigeon-holed him into only one choice,Ž Martin said.Martin said did not want to dissect the NCAAs decision, saying he accepted it and worked with Bowen and his family on his future. Bowen has since with-drawn from this months NBA draft. Martin said hell play in a developmental league or play outside the country to preserve his eligibility for next years draft.South Carolina brought in Bowen last January despite his involvement with the college corruption scandal. It was not the coaches only ties to the ongoing investigation. One of Martins former staff members, ex-Oklahoma State assistant Lamont Evans, was arrested by federal authorities. Documents from the investigation showed former Gamecocks point guard PJ Dozier received $6,115 from the ASM Sports Agency while in school.S. Carolinas Martin gets Bowens choice to enter draft Brooks Koepka holds up the Golf Champion Trophy on Sunday after winning the U.S. Open Golf Championship in Southampton, N.Y. [CAROLYN KASTER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y.Brooks Koepka now has as many majors as Greg Norman and as many PGA Tour victories as Pat Perez. Koepka belongs in the conversation of elite players in his generation by winning his second U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, a test that asked an entirely different set of questions than the U.S. Open he won last year at Erin Hills. Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth are the only players in their 20s to have won multiple majors, at least for now. And while the 28-year-old Koepka is only in his fourth full year on the PGA Tour, to see his supreme performance at Shinnecock Hills makes it hard to believe he has only one other PGA Tour title. That was three years ago at the Phoenix Open. Thats likely to change. It might have to for Koepka to get the recognition he deserves, even if thats not what drives him. His record should get anyones attention. Koepka has finished among the top 15 in nine of his past 10 majors starting with the 2015 British Open at St. Andrews. The exception was the Masters two years ago, when he tied for 21st. He missed a month with an ankle injury and returned with a tie for fourth at the 2016 PGA Championship to secure a spot on his first Ryder Cup team. And then he went 3-1 in his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine. He really is a major player. So what about all the other tournaments hes played? Koepka touched on that last summer at the Bridgestone Invitational when he said the majors are where I feel like Im going to shine.Ž Unfortunately, I havent done it as much in regular tour events or throughout my career,Ž Koepka said. Its just being a little bit more focused, maybe taking it more serious, knowing that every shot ... to me, it feels like life or death. If you screw up, youre gone. I just love getting up for it and playing the best and playing really, really hard golf courses.Ž Shinnecock went from ridiculously hard on Saturday to overly gentle on Sunday, though the ultimate measure was Koepka playing the final 36 holes in even par to win. He finished at 1-over 281, the first time in five years that no one broke par at the U.S. Open. The USGA doesnt like to talk about scores, but thats the identity of this major. And for now, majors define Koepka. Norman gets beat up for the number of majors he could have won, including at Shinnecock Hills in 1986, the year he had the 54-hole lead at all four majors. The Shark also had 75 victories around the world and was No. 1 longer than any other player until Tiger Woods came along. Sunday at Shinnecock began with a four-way tie for the lead, with the past two U.S. Open champions „ Koepka and Dustin Johnson „ playing in the penultimate group. They are close friends off the course, and even worked out together in the morning before their last two rounds. Koepka went 1 up on U.S. Open trophies. Still, he was stumped when asked who was ahead in their back-and-forth. Johnson, still only 33 but much like Norman, hasnt cashed in at the majors as much as he should have. Attribute that to a cold putter on the weekend at Shinnecock, which also held him back at Augusta in April. Even so, he has 18 victories and is the only player to sweep the World Golf Championships, small fields with the best players. Hes won every year hes been out here. Thats incredible,Ž Koepka said. I dont know how long hes been out here, 11 years? How many wins has got, 18? Thats pretty good. Ive got some catching up to do.Ž Koepka believes Johnson will win another U.S. Open and said he would end his career as among the best to ever play. That will require more than one additional major, for sure, though Johnson already is well ahead in the victory count. Thats the next step for Koepka, at least until the next major. Before earning his PGA Tour card, Koepka won the Turkish Airlines Open against a strong European Tour field that included Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Branden Grace and Ian Poulter. Late last year, he registered a nine-shot victory in the Dunlop Phoenix, one of the strongest Japan Golf Tour events. Xander Schauffele tied for second, with Hideki Matsuyama another shot behind.Koepka could use more wins, but his trophies are big SPORTS TICKER Brooks Koepka reacts Sunday after “ nishing the “ nal round of the U.S. Open Golf Championship in Southampton, N.Y.

** B2 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks shrugged off early losses and wound up with a mixed finish Monday. Household goods companies took some of the worst losses as the S&P 500 index fell for the third time in four days.The S&P 500 dropped as much as 22 points early on. Consumer products and packaged foods companies stum-bled and drug makers and distributors fell, as did health insurers. That came after indexes in Europe and Asia fell. German stocks took steep losses as investors wondered if a dispute over migrants could eventually threaten the German government.But stocks gradually recovered most of their losses as energy companies rose along with oil prices and technology companies managed to make some gains as well. Smaller and more U.S.-focused companies climbed higher. That continued a pattern that has persisted for more than three months.Its been a turbulent few months for stocks, but the benchmark S&P 500 is a bit higher than it was when international trade tensions started to weigh on the market in late February. The S&P 500 fell 5.91 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,773.75. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 103.01 points, or 0.4 percent, to 24,987.47. The Nasdaq composite edged up 0.65 points to 7,747.03.The Russell 2000 index rose 8.55 points, or 0.5 percent, to a record 1,692.46. Many investors feel the smaller and more U.S.-focused companies in that index are less vulnerable in the event that a major trade dispute slows growth in the global economy. Most of the companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange closed higher.Drugmaker Biogen suffered the biggest fall of any S&P 500 com-pany following positive clinical trial results form a competitor. PTC Therapeutics jumped 27.5 percent to $47.88 after its report from an early study of a drug intended to treat Type 1 spinal muscular atro-phy, a genetic disorder that affects infants.Stocks recover from early dip, nish mixedBy Tom KrisherThe Associated PressDETROIT „ Every workday, about 7,400 trucks mostly loaded with automotive parts rumble across the Ambassador Bridge connecting Detroit and Canada, at times snarl-ing traffic along the busy corridor.But if President Donald Trump delivers on threats to slap 25 percent tariffs on imported vehicles and components, there will be far fewer big rigs heading to factories that are now humming close to capacity on both sides of the border.The tariff threat could be a negotiating ploy to restart stalled talks on the North American Free Trade Agreement. But it also could be real, since the administration already has imposed duties on $50 billion worth of Chinese imports, as well as steel and aluminum from China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico.Tariffs against China include some autos and parts but if those spread to Canada and Mexico, the impact will be far larger because auto manufac-turing has been integrated between the three countries for nearly a quarter century.The Commerce Depart-ment said in a statement last week that it has just launched its investigation into whether imports of auto and auto parts threaten to impair the national security. That investigation, which has only just begun, will inform recommendations to the president for action or inaction.ŽIf the wider auto tariffs are imposed, industry experts say they will disrupt a decades-old symbiotic parts supply chain, raise vehicle prices, cut new-vehicle sales, cost jobs in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and even slow related sectors of the economy.It seems like it is going to be so devastating that I cant imagine that theyre actually going to do it,Ž said Kristen Dziczek, vice president of labor and eco-nomics at the Center for Automotive Research, an industry think tank.Trump, who was snip-ing on Twitter at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after a conten-tious economic summit of the Group of Seven earlier this month, told the Com-merce Department to look at national security reasons to justify tariffs with hopes of bringing factory jobs to the U.S.He tweeted that the administration would look at tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!ŽBut experts predict the tariffs likely would do the opposite, slowing the economy as other countries retaliate. Heres what they say is likely to happen: Auto prices rise, sales fallThe tariffs would be charged on parts and assembled autos. Canada, Mexico and others would likely retaliate with duties, and automakers wont be able to absorb all of the increases. So they will have to raise prices. Imported parts, which all cars and trucks have, will cost more, further raising costs.Were all going to pay a lot more for vehicles,Ž said Tim Galbraith, sales man-ager of Cavalier tool and manufacturing in Wind-sor, Ontario, near Detroit, maker of steel molds used to produce plastic auto parts.About 44 percent of the 17.2 million new vehicles sold last year in the U.S. were imported from other countries, and half of those came from Canada and Mexico. All have parts from outside the U.S., sometimes as much as 40 percent.Based on the 24-yearold NAFTA, automakers and suppliers constantly ship fully assembled vehicles as well as engines, transmissions and thousands of small widgets across both U.S. borders. Parts also come from China and other countries.

A reading of 70 in May temporarily snapped a four-month slide.Any reading above 50 indicates more builders see sales conditions as good rather than poor. The index has remained above 60 since September 2016.Builders view of current sales conditions fell one point, to 75 this month. The outlook for sales over the next six months fell one point to 76. A measure of buyer traffic fell one point to 50.Builders are optimis-tic about housing market conditions as consumer demand continues to grow,Ž said NAHB Chairman Randy Noel, However, builders are increasingly concerned that tariffs placed on Canadian lumber and other imported products are hurting housing affordability.ŽThe organization said higher lumber prices have added nearly $9,000 to the price of a new single-family home since January 2017.The overall housing market remains tight, with prices of existing homes rising as demand remains strong and listings decrease. Mortgage rates are also steadily increasing, making purchases even more difficult for first-time homebuyers.Sales of new U.S. homes fell 1.5 percent in April, according to The Commerce Department. The National Association of Realtors reported a 2.5 percent drop in existing home sales in April.Builder optimism fades with potential trade war loomingExperts say auto tari s would raise prices, cost jobs BUSINESS Trucks cross the Ambassador Bridge on June 12 from Windsor, Ontario, into Detroit.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, June 20, 2018 B3 CROSSWORDSpecial to WCN/HCTACHIPLEY On behalf of the Ralph W. Ray Family, Marlene J. Ray presented a donation to the Florida Panhandle Technical College Foundation of $10,370.00 to establish a scholarship for a student studying business or administrative management at FPTC. This donation is a specific endowment that will be presented annually as the Ralph W. Ray Scholarship in perpetuity. Ralph Ray taught at Chipley High School for 15 years (1952 to 1967) and then 25 years (1967 to 1992) at the Washington-Holmes Vocation Technical Center now known as Florida Panhandle Technical College. He always considered teaching to be a "calling" of the highest order and in addition to his undergraduate degree from Bowling Green Business University (Bowling Green, KY, 1952), he also completed a Masters Degree at Florida State University. Ralph and Marlene, who had a nursing career, married in 1960 and raised three children in Chipley during their 57-year marriage that includes grandchildren. Originally from McCool, MS, Ralph served his country during World War II in the U.S. Navy overseas in Guam. In addition to teaching for over 40 years, Ralph also unselfishly provided his leadership to the Lions Club and Chipley First United Methodist Church. The WHTC Foundation, Inc., was founded in 1986 to provide financial assistance to students attending the Technical Center, and today the school offers over 40 degree and certification programs, as well as providing dual enrollment opportunities for high school students to obtain advanced training prior to high school graduation. During the past six years, the FPTC Foundation has provided financial assistance of over $250,000 to 450+ students, and this fiscal year will provide another $37,500 to about 60 students. The Foundation has endowed funds that are invested in a diverse professionally managed portfolio but depends on the fund-raising campaign each year for about ‡rd of its aid funds. As an IRS Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations to the FPTC Foundation are tax deductible under federal income tax regulations for most tax payers. Governed by a Board of 9 Directors and with a Committee of Trustees of 27 that provides oversight and strategic planning, the FPTC Foundation is one of the most active scholarship programs in Washington, Holmes, and Jackson counties. While the Foundation needs its annual donors to operate its successful student aid programs, it is also in need of more endowment funds in larger donations. In recent years, the Foundation has accepted donations of real estate, publicly traded stock and private grants, and can accept donations in almost any format. To learn more about the FPTC Foundation, contact Chairman Jim Town at (850) 773-8000.Ralph Ray Family creates $10,000 endowment SCHOOLS & SOCIETYRalph Woodard Ray Staff ReportVERNON Vernon High School athletics department is replenishing its pantry and needs your help.

** B4 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 | Washington County News FAITHPatience has never been a virtue of mine; I like it right now, rather than later. Im also not very good at quiet. And you could probably add serenity to that as well. Oh and dragging out the moment... I find that after five minutes ... Im good. I have a lot of shortcomings. I like to say Gods still working on meŽ and Im being utterly serious. Im more of a long in-depth project rather than a work-in-progress. Heres a good example. I stood at the very edge, cause Im a dare devil like that. Arms spread wide and looking from side to side slowly. It was my first and only trip to the Grand Canyon. It was stunning. Unlike a picture you see, the actual depth and texture to the view cannot be fully appreciated until you see it. The valleys and the different colors of rock: Gorgeous! After about five minutes of looking, I started getting distracted by the sweat rolling down my back. There were bugs too. I dont like bugs. It was June, it was hot and we were standing out in the midday heat. Sweating. Together. It was a special moment. Then I was done. Before my husband started heading over toward another lookout point, he reached his hand out, I slapped him a high five and made tracks for our truck. There was air conditioning there. He would continue to spend another hour just staring. I was rocking some serious tunes and the A/C on high. Our first visit to the Pacific Ocean was on that same trip. We parked our old truck at the very edge of the parking lot and handin-hand we walked until all we could see was the neverending blue-green color of the ocean. I was fully clothed and hip deep in the water, before it occurred to me that 1) It was very cold in the ocean verses a lake like I was used to and 2) My husband had left his shirt and shoes neatly sitting out of the path of the water. So later when the sun went down I was freezing and soaking wet with nothing warm and dry. Until he handed over his dry shirt and shoes. This would continue to be a pattern in our marriage. He savors things and I fall upon it like a rabid wolf consuming it in minutes. It may be something as simple as a dessert but chances are extremely good that Im licking the bowl and/or cup while he has just finished eating the cherry off the top of his. Then I sit there waiting on him ... and occasionally snagging an extra bite. As parents this pattern was magnified. Heaven help us when either baby had a fever, I was packing bags and calling up nurse hotlines and preparing for hospital stays. Meanwhile hes giving her a bath and Tylenol then rocking her to sleep. I would finally stop and take a deep breath just to see them asleep in the chair. Over the years, I learned to recognize my tendency for dramatic flair. I try to slow down and enjoy life around me, not jump to conclusions (though the invention of Web MD did not help). Im so thankful that my guy, through thick and thin, bitter bag ladies and sunny days, is still here to drag me to reality whenever I tend to skip off through the daisies. Hes cautious and plans out his approach. Which comes in handy when Im flailing about trying to get my footing. I hear so many people telling kids today to wait until they are 30 to get married, to put off having kids until you can afford them. Luckily, I bucked that norm because I met my other half at 19 and that meant we finished growing up together. Hes the yin to my yang. Its not easy. Its not supposed to be. At no point should you ever expect easy.... that way when things are good... you really appreciate the good. So dont set unreachable goals in your life. Be open for Gods blessings. You may end up with someone who can fix everything you break.Two halvesIf you would like to see your vacation bible school on this list email them to news@chipleypaper.com.

HEALTHTODAYS WORKOUTForward fold increases exibility By Blake Farmer Kaiser Health News/ Nashville Public Radio Hospitals around the country have been upgrading their neonatal intensive care units to include personal webcams for each tiny patient. Its a convenience for parents „ and reduces worries about visitors bringing in germs. The neonatal intensive care unit at St. Thomas Midtown in Nashville, Tennesee, is the latest hospital to join the webcam wave, among facilities around the country from big cities to towns that are installing cameras over each infant. At St. Thomas, Sherri Anderson has 20 years of experience as a neonatal nurse, watching parents run themselves ragged trying to be at the hospital every waking hour, sometimes commuting long distances. The parents go through a lot „ emotionally, spiritually, physically,Ž Anderson said. Its very taxing, and sometimes they just need to go home and just recover.Ž The $1,200 cameras „ which St. Thomas paid for through a special fundraiser „ come from a company called Natus Medical. They provide a closeup shot that anyone in the world can log on to see „ using a password. Jill Brothers had twin boys born at 27 weeks, requiring a two-month stay in the NICU. Her husband, who plays professional baseball, was away for spring training most of that time, but he could get on the computer and watch the boys progress. This has been a crucial element to just being a part and feeling like youre involved with their growth,Ž she said. Theres lots of other people in the family that have been able to log on and see the boys and see them [in] real time, which is great.Ž Brothers still came to the hospital every day, but she found herself checking the web stream when she was up in the middle of the night „ to watch the boys breathing. I really just felt like it was safe and comfortable,Ž she said. Parents peace of mind is only one aim, though. St. Thomas NICU nursing director Donna Darnell said the new cameras could cut down on germs sneaking into the unit from other relatives stopping by. There are times throughout the year that we worry about a lot of visitors. Flu season is the best example,Ž Darnell said. Even during normal times, access for family and friends is highly restricted because of germs „ and the cameras give many more people the opportunity to see the tiny patients. In the little research that has been done, parents have loved the video access. Doctors also are OK with it, but a study published in the American Journal of Perinatology found that some nurses have misgivings about being watched all day and all night.Cameras on preemies let family in, keep germs out By Marlo Alleva More Content NowFitness is a necessity for all levels of ability. No matter the amount of weight lifted, the miles logged, or calories burned, movement is key. On those days when fitness cant be fit in, your body needs a bit of stretching. It can be as simple as reaching for the sky and holding it a little longer than normal. Our move today is a forward fold. This folding stretch will loosen your back, arms, glutes and hamstrings. And best of all, everyone can do it. Begin this stretch by standing tall, feet flat on the floor, about hip width apart. Holding your chest tall and core strong, take a deep breath and bend at the hips. Keep this forward motion somewhat slow, taking your time to articulate in your spine. Reaching with the hands toward the floor in front of your toes, you will begin to feel the targeted muscles pull slightly (in a good way). Start by reaching for the knees, if thats good, go toward the shins, and if thats good, reach all the way to the feet. Once you get to your deepest point, try holding it for about 10-15 seconds. Take another deep breath, and try to extend it slightly more. Repeat this a few times, then return to a standing position. Take a small break, then repeat the forward fold again. Marlo Alleva, an instructor at Golds Gym and group fitness coordinator at Fontaine-Gills YMCA in Florida, can be reached at faluvzpa@msn.com.Marlo Alleva demonstrates a forward fold stretch. [SCOTT WHEELER/THE LEDGER] Virtual visiting hours How does it work?The web camera delivers a secure image stream for parents and other relatives to view their baby remotely. Family members can securely access NicView from anywhere there is an internet connection via a laptop, smartphone or tablet. Live streaming is only accessible to speci“ ed users. No recordings are made, and no images are stored. The hospital staff determine camera positioning, programs viewing times and issues usernames and passwords.„ Natus Medical, makers of NicView web camera system While Duke Brothers stayed in the NICU at St. Thomas Midtown in Nashville, Tennessee, his parents could watch over him via a webcam attached to the top of his isolette.
