Early voting is Aug. 18-25 and Oct 27-Nov. 3, respectively.Floridas voters will see a range of hot topic issues this November. Here are a few our readers may show heightened interest in. Amendment 1:Increased Homestead Property Tax Exemption, which increases the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed valuation of homestead property greater than $100,000 and up to $125,000 for all levies other than school district levies. The amendment shall take effect January 1, 2019. Amendment 3:Voter Control of Gambling in Florida, which gives Florida voters exclusive right to decide whether to authorize casino gambling. Amendment 7:First Responder and Military Member Survivor Benefits; Public Colleges and Universities Grants, which assesses a mandatory payment of death benefits and waiver of certain educational expenses to qualifying survivors of certain first responders and military mem-bers who die performing official duties. Amendment 8:School Board Term Limits and Duties; Public Schools, which creates a term limit of eight consecutive years for school board members and requires the legislature to provide for the promotion of civic literacy in public schools. Currently, district school boards have a constitutional duty to operate, control, and supervise all public schools. The amendment main-tains a school boards duties to public schools it establishes, but permits the state to operate, control, and supervise public schools not established by the school board. Amendment 13:Ends Dog Racing, which phases out commercial dog racing in connection with wagering by 2020. Other gaming activities are not affected.Several qualify, run unopposed Staff ReportCHIPLEY „ Three people were arrested Friday after two search warrants were issued for unrelated cases.Washington County Sher-iffs Office arrested Thomas Smith, 35, and Amanda Smith, 29, for child neglect possession of cocaine after a search warrant was executed at the Allison Drive residence early Friday morning.The warrant was obtained after investigators with the Washington County Drug Task Force received information during a nar-cotics investigation, a WCSO news release sated. During the search, multiple items associated with the use, pos-session, manufacturing, and distribution of controlled substances, including more than 28 grams of cocaine were recovered. Firearms and various types of ammunition were also recovered.In addition to the afore-mentioned charges, Thomas Smith was also charged with Search warrants lead to child neglect, drug chargesCox T.

Smith By David Adlerstein653-8894 | dadlerstein@starfl.comEASTPOINT „ A fast-moving fire that whirled like a tornado Sunday evening through an almost thousand-acre stretch of mobile homes thatborder the state forest destroyed at least three dozen of them, Franklin County officials said.That doesnt include the many fishing boats and pickup trucks that once pop-ulated almost every front yard, nowreduced to apun-gent carcass of charred metal or fiberglass.Pam Brownell, the coun-tys emergency management director, said the fire took the structure and contents of least 36 homes, with four more burned to some degree. Because of its wind-driven gyrations, the fire missed sev-eral properties along its path, leaving them unscathed.The loss of property is esti-mated to be at least $800,000, according to Property Appraiser Rhonda Skipper.Among those who lost everything was Matt Polous, whose property at 605 Ridge Road was among the first to be consumed after the fire quickly curled south from Bear Creek Road. Polous ran to awake his neighbor, Sean Boatwright, and when his wife Paula pulled up, returning from her job on St. George Island, he yelled for her to leave. She never entered the home; he left without even his billfold.Fire devastates eastpoint homesBy Diane M.

Little did they know, the dialogue would lay the groundwork for a book about three keys to a healthy, happy and success-ful marriage.The key: sharing the same faith as your spouse.When you share the same faith as your spouse, facing issues that call your faith into question become easier to handle and that is a key factor,Ž Hamilton said. When you have different faiths, it can sometimes lead to difficulties, such as, how to raise your children or how to face big issues that may arise in your marriage.ŽHowever, having different faiths will not necessarily ruin your marriage.While it is always better to share the same faith as your significant other, it is not impossible to have different faiths and still have a suc-cessful marriage,Ž he added.Finances usually play a major role in divorces. Ham-ilton covers the topic in the book.Finances are a big issue many couples face during their marriages,Ž Hamilton said. Being on the same page about money is a major factor in a successful relationship.ŽAlthough they are not cer-tified counselors, Hamilton said they just want to impart to others what they have done to make their 12-year marriage a thriving one.We dont have all the answers,Ž he said. But, we know what has worked for us and we want to help others feel the same happiness we do.ŽThe couple maintains the close bond they shared prior to marriage.Gina is my very best friend, the one I want to share every thing in life with,Ž Hamilton said. A lot of couples lose sight of being friends after being married for a while and it is a vital part to a healthy relationship. Remembering why you like someone is so important in maintaining a great relationship.ŽThe couple is working on opening a marriage retreat at their Vernon home. They are in the process of remodeling an old hay barn „ affectionately called the barndominium.While the barn will be their personal home, the other two houses on the property will host couples that come for the retreat, which is likely to open next spring.Hamilton said he didnt write the book to make a profit, he wrote it to help others build healthy marriages. He has also stated that the first quarters royalty check will be given away „ no matter the amount.I want to bless someone else because I have been blessed,Ž he said.Copies of Faith, Finances and Friendship can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books A Million and iTunesfor $11.95. HAMILTONFrom Page A1My whole backyard was full of boats,Ž he said, at least 14 different ones, from a 55-foot grouper boat down to a 17-footer. One of those boats belonged to his brother-in-law, Jeff Page, who planned to oyster Monday morning.Sheriff A.J. Smith said Monday morning that one man died Sunday evening of what appeared to be heart attack, after receiving CPR near the Eastpoint Cemetery as he rushed to rescue his dogs from the fire.The fire began about 4 p.m. Initial fire crews from Apalachicola and Eastpoint at first watched as the fire remained at a distance, but as the fire neared, the winds helped propel it through Bear Creek, Ridge Road and Wilderness Road. By a little after 6 p.m., the fire was threatening those homes and an evacuation was called by the sheriff for those areas, as well as CC Land, Twin Lakes, North Bay Shore and portions of State 65.Its terrible. Its catastrophic,Ž said Smith. There are a lot of homes that are gone. Its probably one of the most intense fires Ive seen in my career. Some of them lost everything theyve ever worked for. Its heartbreaking.ŽGov. Rick Scott toured the damage about 8 a.m. Monday, and Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis later in the afternoon. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam will be visiting Tuesday.Duke Energy crews worked all day to restore power, and law enforcement officials gradually let property owners return to their homes.Todd Schroeder, a public information officer for the Florida Forest Service, said the fire was 95 percent contained by early Monday evening.Speculation was rampant in the Eastpoint community that a controlled burn by a state contractor earlier in the week had reignited and spread out of control, but Schroeder offered no further details.I am sure over this period theres been controlled burns,Ž he said. I dont have knowl-edge to be able to speak to that yet. I cant substantiate that for you tonight.ŽAt least three arson investigators from the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services were on hand, as well as those from sheriffs office, who are working closely with them. Were going to be work-ing on what caused the fire,Ž said Smith. Well get to the bottom of it.ŽFire departments from throughout the county, as well as Liberty, Wakulla and Gulf counties, responded to the fire as deputies rushed to evacuate the area. Brownell estimated about 125 people were forced from their homes.We called out every deputy we had,Ž said Smith. It was all hands on deck.ŽEastpoint Fire Chief George Pruett said deputies quick evacuation efforts saved lives.Had they not been there, there would have been a mas-sive loss of life theres no doubt in my mind. We were bypass-ing houses that were completely burning,Ž he said. We were trying to save the ones we could save.ŽThe sheriff said there was at least one traffic mishap in the rush and confusion, and that deputies made one arrest, although it was not related to looting.The Eastpoint Fire Station initially opened up for those evacuees, and those who didnt find a place with family or friends, were directed to the Eastpoint Church of God. The American Red Cross was busy registering people, and offered them an overnight shelter. The women of the church pre-pared breakfast for the people Monday morning.The Red Pirate served up food Sunday night to those who fled the flames, cooking up hamburgers brought over from Fishermans Choice from the recent youth fishing tournament.Among those who stopped by was Cody Putnal, who lives at 677 Wilderness Road, along with his mother Martha, and brother Joey.Putnal said he believes their home was spared because about six months ago they had cleared out much of the property to make room for four horses they brought in.He said Joey let the horses loose as the flames neared, and the family quickly packed goats, chickens and ducks into a Jeep to get them out safely.The fire just missed the horses,Ž said Putnal. Cody Putnal said he heard an explosion, and went to see what it was. Others recalled hearing what likely were propane tanks, shotgun shells, gasoline cans, and even vehicles exploding.Martha Putnal said she looked out a window and noticed Its getting black out thereŽ and then realized the flames were whipping toward the house, and she had better leave.Paul Sanders stopped by the Red Pirate, and said he believes the fire destroyed his home. He comforted his 8-year-old son.We have each other,Ž he told the boy, who just months earlier had lost his mother.Cody Putnal said he ran out of the house so fast he left his medicines, some for a heart ailment. His mother said that as they fled, they passed by the house of a friend, Mason Moore, and saw it was completely gone.You could see through the house all the way to Ridge Road,Ž she said. The fire was moving down the road. We drove through it.ŽChristy Russell had to convince her boyfriend, Ryan Williamson, who at first thought it was a little house fire down the road,Ž to flee. Everybody was going down the road,Ž he said. Panicking,Ž she added.Williamson didnt even grab his wallet and Russell took only one thing as she left.The first thing I grabbed was my babys blanket,Ž she said. She ran next door to alert her neighbor. All I could see was orange,Ž Russell said. I felt the heat.Ž The Humane Society animal shelter remained open, and accepted animals displaced by the fire.

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Three years ago this month Donald Trump descended the escalator inside Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for the presidency. And many of the presidents critics would maintain that he dragged down the nature of our conversation about politics along with him. Its indisputable that the president bears much of the blame for the coarsening of our political discourse, and his foes fret that his tweets and rhetoric represent the new normal for debating policy. But its misguided and ignorant of our history to see him as an aberration. We once had a sitting vice president shoot and kill a political rival in duel; once had a lawmaker nearly beat another to death with a cane on the Senate floor; once had lawmakers engage in fistfights in the Capitol; once featured newspapers and politicians taking swipes at our presidents or presidential candidates as pimps, children of hookers, hermaphroditical.Ž Still, since Trump came to office, we do see a regrettable trend in this regard. Two weeks ago actor Robert DeNiro went on stage at the Tony Awards and simply declared, F--Trump.Ž Twice. After ABC recently fired Roseanne Barr for an offensive tweet about a former Barack Obama adviser, comedian Bill Maher went on his HBO show to defend and repeat a previous jokeŽ that Trump was the product of sex between his mother and an orangutan. Last week news channels broadcast video of a Justice Department intern yelling her own DeNiro-quality insult as the president walked through the Capitol.Right after Trumps inauguration, Madonna stood before thousands at the Womens March and unloaded her own F-word-littered tirade at Trump and those critical of her tone. We could fill this newspaper with such examples pertaining to Trump. And thats not to mention the many occasions when critics have encouraged or simulated violence against the current president „ heated rhetoric that a year ago led a Bernie Sanderssupporting loon to open fire at Republican lawmakers practicing for a baseball game. The issue here is not so much harsh criticism of the president; thats as old as the nation itself. Rather, we take exception to the weird insinuation that, for Trumps critics, he is somehow to blame for their actions. Trump is Trump and will behave accordingly. But how people choose to react to his comments and tweets is entirely on them. Its the height of hypocrisy to gripe that Trump is dragging us into the gutter, but then applaud his gutter-mouthed critics. It seems so long ago when Michelle Obama told Democrats at their national convention that, in the age of Trump, Our motto is when they go low, we go high.Ž How quickly that was abandoned. Those who engage in this return-fire anti-Trump crassness, or support it, are not offering a solution to incivility; theyre part of the problem. This editorial first appeared in the Lakeland Ledger, a sister paper with GateHouse Media. These days, it takes two to be crude ANOTHER VIEW Im looking forward to another professionally orchestrated fireworks display at our municipal recreation center this Independence Day, but nothing can quite match my childhood memories of backyard fireworks extravaganzas with barely any adult supervision. For a too-brief span of years, a cherished summertime tradition was a visit by Lew and Bob, my two oldest cousins on my mothers side of the family. Fireworks sales were very restricted in their part of Pennsylvania, so they went hog wild and pig crazy with pyrotechnics when visiting Tennessee. Lew had two young children to impress and Bob was still a carefree bachelor, so they splurged on all sorts of things that went boom.Ž I think my favorite was trademarked as Mortgage Payment? Who Needs A Mortgage Payment?Ž or something like that. Yes, the displays were dangerous; but I wouldnt take a million dollars for those rough-andtumble days when we werent so mollycoddled by helicopter parents. That was a golden age when we could bounce out of the back of a pickup truck without any lasting consequences. Oh, and did I mention that was a golden age when we could bounce out of the back of a pickup truck without any lasting consequences? Mind you, it wasnt all just fun for funs sake. When we were out of school for the summer, the fireworks were a red-whiteand-blue patriotic way to keep from forgetting our civics lessons. (I only regret that I have but 10 fingers to lose for my country.Ž) Dont get me wrong. I do not come her to second-guess or condemn civic leaders who try to impose common sense restrictions on fireworks.I realize there are lots of reasons they risk being branded a spoilsport. Loud fireworks can be distressing for pets. Just as mayors can be distressed by the realization that they missed out on the emotional support animals for emotional support animalsŽ grant gravy train. There are drought conditions that exploit stray fireworks. There are concerns about possible damage to utility lines. There are neighbors whose sleep patterns may not mesh well with revelers. There are city leaders who apparently have a Roman candle wedged oh so tightly up their... well, there are lots of reasons. Im sure there are carbon-footprint-conscious crusaders who gnash their teeth at the smoke billowing from bottle rockets, but they should leave well enough alone. Or they just might provoke someone into developing a pyrotechnic dubbed Flatulent Cow. In trying to research this column, I found a crazy quilt of regulations across the country. Not only is there a nationwide ban on certain high-powered explosives (you know the slogan: I cant believe its not a mailbox any longerŽ), but states and municipalities have all sorts of capricious distinctions about dates and hours and consumer fireworksŽ and novelty itemsŽ and the like. (For sale only when the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars...Ž) A few communi ties have loosened fireworks restrictions, but there are too many other pressing issues to keep large-scale deregulation from being a priority. (Oops. My gender is so fluid it put out the sparklers. My bad.Ž) Alas, cousin Lew passed away a decade ago. Bob lost a long battle with kidney disease in May. But Ill always remember them as overgrown kids. And hope that they didnt get busted smuggling bootleg Hammer of Thunder in their halos.A Special Time: Backyard Fireworks With Hardly Any SupervisionThe Pew Research Center quiz was harder than I expected.Ž Ah, yes, you speak of the recently released survey in which Pew quizzed 5,035 adult Americans to determine their ability to distinguish between factual information and opinion statements in the news.Ž Thats right. The Pew website lets anyone take a quiz featuring 10 statements, five that are true-or-false factual statements and five that are opinion statements. Pew told me to ignore whether or not a statement is accurate and also to ignore whether or not I agree with it. I follow the news and figured Id ace the quiz, but I didnt.Ž Lets take a look at the quiz. Pews first statement says, Abortion should be legal in most cases. Did you classify that as a fact or an opinion?Ž I classified it as an opinion and got it right. This is a contentious issue, but the statement is still an opinion.Ž Pews second statement said, Immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally have some rights under the Constitution. How did you classify that one?Ž Its factual. Look, its true that undocumented immigrants dont have the full rights of a U.S. citizen, but, according to the ACLU, our Constitution does afford them some rights, such as freedom of speech, religion, privacy and others. I struggled with Pews next statement, however.Ž That Democracy is the greatest form of government?Ž Yes. I classified it as a fact, because I strongly believe that democracy „ in our case a representative republic „ is the greatest, but the statement is, in truth, an opinion.Ž Its not always easy to separate ones strong beliefs and opinions from facts. Pew found that each participant was more likely to classify both factual and opinion statements as factual when the statements validated his or her personal politics or beliefs.Ž Thats probably why Pew chose 10 statements that may get people fired up, depending on their political points of view. Such as this one thats still driving conspiracy nuts crazy: President Barack Obama was born in the United States. I correctly classified that as a fact.Ž Which others did you get right? Its a fact that Health care costs per person in the U.S. are the highest in the developed world, that Spending on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid make up the largest portion of the U.S. federal budget, and that ISIS lost a significant portion of its territory in Iraq and Syria in 2017.Ž Which opinions did you classify correctly?Ž Its an opinion, not a fact, that Immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally are a very big problem for the country today, and that A $15 federal minimum wage is essential to the health of the U.S. Economy.ŽConfusing Facts & Opinions Danny Tyree Tom Purcell

** A6 Wednesday, June 27, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Brendan FarringtonThe Associated PressSANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla. „ Along a stretch of white, sandy shoreline in Floridas Panhandle, a simple question has led to profanity-laden argu-ments, private security guards and calls to law enforcement: Who owns the beach?In one coastal county, a new state law is set to rekindle that uproar just in time for the July 4th holiday.As of July 1, Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson said his deputies will have to start arresting people who put their beach blankets down in front of private homes and refuse to leave.We will start enforcing private property rights, which is up to including removing people from the beach,Ž Adkinson said. We are required by law to treat the beach as if its somebodys front yard.ŽTo county residents like Dave Rauschkolb, a surfer and restaurant owner, thats just wrong.Beach access should be sacrosanct for all. The notion of a private beach is an oxymoron,Ž he said. After this goes into effect, people can be physically removed from specific beaches, like bouncers at a bar, and to me thats despicable.ŽMany Florida beachfront homes own the sand down to the average high-water line. Yet in some counties, like Walton, local ordinances allow the public to put out towels and umbrellas, fish and hang out if its shown that those beaches have been open to the public for decades.A new state law establishes a process for counties to grant whats called customary useŽ access to otherwise privately owned beaches. It goes into effect July 1, when beaches will be crowded in this area between Pensacola and Panama City Beach. Long known as the Redneck Riviera,Ž this stretch of the Gulf Coast has been an established tourist destination for workingclass Southerners. More recently, however, it has captured the interest of wealthy visitors who have built multi-million dollar beach homes.Democratic state Rep. Katie Edwards-Walpole said she sponsored the bill to end legal disputes between local governments and property owners „ not restrict beach access.I love our state and travel quite extensively,Ž Edwards-Walpole said. Beach access is a big part of that. The last thing I want to do is restrict my access to beachfront property.ŽThe new law wont change the current rights people have to the beach „ except in Walton County.Unlike two Atlantic Coast counties with similar beach-access ordinances, Walton Countys ordinance doesnt follow the requirements of the new law. The county didnt seek court approval before implementing its ordi-nance and it gave blanket access to all beaches instead of identifying specific parcels of private lands. Thats why it will become void.Now Walton County is gearing up for more fights.Its pretty scary,Ž said Theresa Barrett as she prepared to go to one of the countys public beaches. She said there will be more conflicts between local residents and tourists will be driven elsewhere.Its going to affect business, its going to affect property values,Ž said Barrett, who owns a boutique. Theyll definitely go elsewhere. Youve got a whole strip of beach in Panama City Beach, youve got St. George Island and all that where they can just pick up and go to those places where they can sit on the beach in peace.ŽBut Bill Hackmeyer and other property owners also want to enjoy their beach in peace, and they say their property values will be affected if anyone can take advantage of the space many paid millions to have to themselves.New law reignites beach access ght in PanhandleThis May 15 photo shows a sign at the edge of a public beach marking where private beaches begin in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. [BRENDAN FARRINGTON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] LOCAL & STATEStaff ReportGREENE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI „ A Wash-ington County man could be indicted for writing bad checks. Greene County Sheriffs Office reported 35-yearold Tyler Porter was arrested in early April on a felony offense of writing bad checks and intimidating a witness.The officers involved in the case are mounting evidence to present to a grand jury for his indictment, a GCSO spokesperson stated.According to the Greene County justice court, Porter is out on a $150,000 bond.Local man facing felony chargesPorter COCOANo charges for 5 teens who mocked drowning man, didnt helpFive Florida teenagers will not be prosecuted after they videotaped and mocked a disabled man as he drowned and didnt help. Prosecutors told Flor-ida Today the teens could not be prosecuted because there is no state law that requires a bystander to help or get assistance for someone who is in danger.The teens spotted 31-year-old Jamel Dunn struggling in a pond last July, but instead of helping they videotaped him and then posted it online.In the video, the teens are heard laughing and yelling at Dunn, telling him that he is going to drown and that they are not going to help him. They call him dumb.ŽIn a statement Friday, State Attorney Phil Archer called the teens callousŽ but said under the law, they couldnt be prosecuted.TALLAHASSEEFlorida gets high marks for handing of “ nancesFlorida is getting high marks from a major ratings agency for a sustainedŽ and robustŽ recovery from the Great Recession.Moodys Investors Services upgraded the states bond rating to AAA. Thats the highest rating the agency awards and means Florida will pay lower interest payments when it borrows money.The administration of Gov. Rick Scott said this marks the first time that all three major rating agen-cies have assigned the state their highest ratings.During his time as governor, Scott has pushed to reduce Floridas total amount of debt. In a news release Thursday, Moodys said Florida earned the higher rating because the states economy and finances have been consistently improving. It also noted the states low amount of debt and the health of its pension plan.PALATKASchool board member charged with stealing Authorities say a county school board member in Florida has been arrested after stealing from Walmart. A Putnam County Sher-iffs Office news release says 41-year-old Nikki Cummings was arrested on a grand theft charge Friday. Detectives said they were tipped off earlier this week that Cummings failed to scan all her items Monday while using a self-checkout line at a Palatka Walmart.Store security confirmed an employee checking receipts determined Cum-mings had paid for $32.07 worth of merchandise, but her cart contained another $388.39 in unpaid merchandise.Detectives say video sur-veillance showed a May 30 visit to the store, where Cummings used the selfcheckout line without scanning two fishing poles and then left the store.HUDSONMan charged with pointing gun at texting driver A man is facing charges after authorities say he pointed a gun at another driver because she was texting.The Tampa Bay Times reports that 41-yearold Philip Macchio was arrested Friday on charges of aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon.The Pasco County Sheriffs Office said after Macchio spotted another driver texting, he pulled in front of her and tapped his brakes. The woman told detectives that when she went around him, he pointed a handgun at her.Deputies said when they stopped Macchio, they found a Glock hand-gun in his center console but he denied pointing it at her. He told deputies he had waved his cellphone instead.He later was released on bond.FLORIDA BRIEFS

The other was filed by the Minneapolis-based Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. They follow a similar lawsuit filed Thursday by nine businesses that rely on the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, plus Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness. All three were filed in federal court in Wash-ington, D.C.BUCHAREST, ROMANIAProbe sought in communistera deaths of 340 orphansA Romanian government institute asked prosecutors Monday to investigate the deaths of 340 children at a com-munist-era orphanage during the 1980s. The Institute for Investigat-ing the Crimes of Communism said the deaths occurred from 1980-1989 at the Horror Orphanage,Ž the nickname local residents gave to a facility for children with chronic neurological disorders in the northern town of Siret.A total of 8,586 children were admitted there from 1956 until the facility closed in 2001. There were 1,500 deaths during that period, but the institute only reviewed ones from the 1980s due to time constraints. It said 81 children died in 1981 alone.BERLINCourt convicts Syrian who beat man wearing Jewish capA Berlin court convicted a 19-year-old Syrian on Monday of serious bodily harm and slander for attack-ing a man wearing a Jewish skullcap in the German capital in April.

Marshalls suit claims the chief threatened to fire or suspend him if he didnt attend the monthly counsel-ing sessions with a chaplain.Marshall also claims he was passed over for promotions given to less experienced offi-cers because they attended the same church as the chief. The suit doesnt specify the chiefs religious affiliation.BRUSSELSEU slaps sanctions on Venezuelan VP, 10 othersThe European Union banned travel and froze the assets of 11 senior Venezuelan officials on Monday, including new Vice President Delcy Rodriguez, pressing the nations leaders to hold fresh elections and return to demo-cratic rule.The people listed are responsible for human rights violations and for undermin-ing democracy and the rule of law in Venezuela,Ž EU head-quarters said in a statement.Venezuela immediately responded, accusing European leaders of meddling in Venezuelas internal affairs and undermining the nations peace.

[EVAN VUCCI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ]By Sam OlukoyaThe Associated PressLAGOS, Nigeria „ Scores of people died in central Nigeria during vicious weekend clashes between mostly Muslim herders and Christian farmers, with one report citing police saying 86 people were killed. By some accounts, the growing conflict over resources has become deadlier than Nigerias Boko Haram extremist insurgency.Nigerias president accused unnamed politicians in a statement Monday of taking advantage of the chaos ahead of next years elections, calling it incredibly unfortunate.ŽDramatic footage from Jos showed angry people waving machetes and sticks and shouting at passing security forces as they weaved around overturned and burning vehicles. Smoke rose in the distance. Women and children clutching overstuffed bags piled into the back of trucks, seeking a way out.President Muhammadu Buhari warned against repri-sal attacks after the deeply unfortunate killings across a number of communitiesŽ in central Plateau State as the military, police and counter-terror units were sent to end the bloodshed.No efforts will be sparedŽ to find the attackers, Buhari said.Nigerias government said scoresŽ were killed, but did not provide an official death toll. The independent Chan-nels Television cited a Plateau State police spokesman, Mathias Tyopev, as saying 86 people had been killed and at least 50 houses destroyed.Mass burials began Monday amid fears that the death toll was even higher. Please remain calm,Ž said the Plateau State governor, Simon Bako Lalong, as a heli-copter whirred overhead. It is very, very, unfortunate that an incident is happening again like this.ŽThe deadly clashes between herders and farmers are a growing security concern in Africas most populous coun-try, which is roughly split between Muslims in the north and Christians in the south.The threat from Boko Haram, which continues to carry out attacks in the northeast, has been cited as a cause of the growing tensions. Herders in search of safe grazing land, and also feeling the effects of climate change, have been forced south into more populated farming communities.The widespread security issues pose a major challenge to Buhari, a Muslim former military ruler who won office in a democratic transfer of power in 2015, as elections approach next year.The latest clashes began when about 100 cattle were rustled and some herders were killed, the statement from Buharis office said. Less than 24 hours later, violence broke out. Some thugs then took advantage of the situation, turning it into an opportunity to extort the public, and to attack people from rival political parties.Ž Some people were dragged from their cars and attacked if they said they supported cer-tain politicians, the statement said.The Plateau State governor announced a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew in the communities of Jos South, Riyom and Barkin Ladi until further notice.Observe the curfew, observe the curfew, and I will still remind them to observe the curfew,Ž he said.86 killed in Nigeria as farmers, herders clash NATION & WORLDA woman stands near her relative as he receives treatment Monday at the Jos University teaching hospital in Jos, Nigeria, after clashes in central Nigeria between mostly Muslim herders and Christian farmers.

Hello, Dale Jr.After being mostly out of sight since his last NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead in November, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will spread his wings on the new chapter of his racing life as a television commentator for NBC Sports this weekend. Fox Sports ended its 16-race opening run and has handed off to NBC, which takes the reins all the way to South Florida. It will be interesting to see what the TV ratings look like next week.2. No aero makeoverIn case you missed it, NASCAR said it wont try to jam the aero package used in the All-Star Race into any more races on 1.5-mile tracks this season. The package included restrictor plates and large rear spoilers, which bunched the “ eld during the All-Star run. NASCAR of“ cials said the package is something that could workŽ and said fans will see more of it in the 2019 season.3. Point racingIt has become painfully obvious that the 2018 season is a three-driver show among Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. They have won 12 of the “ rst 16 races. With only six drivers winning Cup Series races so far and 10 races to go, more drivers are taking a closer look at their points. Alex Bowman, currently 15th in points, is the points bubble man with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Paul Menard hot on his tail.„Godwin Kelly, godwin.kelly@ news-jrnl.comDale Earnhardt Jr. will make his television announcing debut this weekend for NBC. [STEVE HELBER/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] 1. Evil geniusNASCAR has a new evil genius in crew chief Cole Pearn, who faked a pit-stop call that led Martin Truex Jr. to a runaway win at Sonoma. Its tough,Ž Pearn said. Everybody is so good in this, it sometimes takes something different to mix it up and pull one out.Ž2. Pole slideKyle Larson started from the pole at Sonoma, led two laps and then vanished into the crowd over the 1.99-mile road course. The 25-yearold driver was slipping and sliding and “ nished 14th. After four straight top-10 “ nishes, Larsons average in his last two starts is 21st.3. Brotherly loveAt the end of Sundays race, Kurt Busch was trying to hold off younger brother Kyle for “ fth-place honors. He failed. We were a top-“ ve car and couldnt quite hold off my little brother at the end,Ž sixthplace Kurt said. We battled ƒ I was hoping we could contend for a win.Ž„Godwin Kelly, godwin.kelly@ news-jrnl.comMartin Truex Jr. raises the trophy after an easy Sonoma victory, thanks to a pit call from crew chief Cole Pearn. [BEN MARGOT/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] Is Junior the answer?It obviously depends on the question, but assuming were talking TV ratings, no hes not. But Junior Earnhardts debut this week as part of NBCs broadcast team will at least be a partial answer, given that hes sure to attract some viewers who are either huge Junior fans or maybe just want to see how he transitions to this new role. As weve learned in recent years, hes thoughtful and honest, so assuming he can wedge his commentary into that c rowded booth, hell probably be very good. No additional plates?After experimenting with plate-racin in the All-Star Race, everyone was suddenly big on contrived pack-racing and looking to add it at other tracks. The assumption was, more would come next year. But some started clamoring for pushing the plates into more 2018 races. In the end, nope, wont happen, which likely means the team owners looked at the expenses involved and ” exed their collective muscle.„Ken Willis, ken.willis@news-jrnl.com

The Dow Jones industrial average fell for the ninth time in 10 days.Stocks sank after the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg News reported that the administration intends to limit exports of some high-tech prod-ucts to China, and will limit investment in technology firms by companies with substantial Chinese ownership. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin suggested the investment restrictions wouldnt be limited to China and the losses deepened. The Dow Jones Industrial Aver-age lost as much as 496 points.The market recovered some of those losses after Peter Navarro, one of Presi-dent Donald Trumps top trade advisers, told CNBC there was no plan for investment restrictions and that the administrations probe into alleged technology theft is limited to China.We hear one thing one hour and something that contradicts it the next hour or the next day,Ž said Randy Frederick, vice president of trading and derivatives for Charles Schwab. Nobody knows what to think or what to believe. It makes it really tough to invest.ŽAll but one of the 72 technology companies listed on the S&P 500 index fell Monday. Those companies have done far better than the broader market over the last year and a half and investors had considered them to be less vulnerable to tar-iffs than other sectors like manufacturing. Taxes by the U.S. on tens of billions of dol-lars in imports from China, and retaliatory taxes by China on U.S. goods, are set to take effect in less than two weeks. While few investors expect a full-blown trade war, Frederick said talks appear to be going in the wrong direction.Every day you get closer to those partic-ular dates it gets more worrisome,Ž he said. Frederick said that is likely to lead to more market volatility.Stocks skid as trade worries pull tech lowerBy Ivan MorenoThe Associated PressMILWAUKEE „ Production of Harley-Davidson motorcycles sold in Europe will move from U.S. factories to facilities overseas, the Milwaukee-based com-pany announced Monday, a consequence of the retaliatory tariffs the EU is imposing on American exports in an escalating trade war with the Trump administration.President Donald Trump has used the iconic American motorcycle maker as an example of a U.S. business harmed by trade barriers in other countries, but Harley had warned that tariffs could negatively impact its sales.The European Union on Friday began rolling out tariffs on American imports including bourbon, peanut butter and orange juice The EU tar-iffs on $3.4 billion worth of U.S. products are retaliation for duties the Trump administration is imposing on European steel and aluminum.The company said in a regulatory filing Monday that EU tariffs on its motorcycles exported from the U.S. jumped between 6 percent and 31 percent, adding about $2,200 per aver-age motorcycle exported from the U.S. to the EU.The impact on U.S. workers because of Har-ley-Davidsons decision was not immediately clear. Harley-Davidson declined interview requests Monday but said in prepared remarks that the company maintains a strong commitment to U.S.-based manufactur-ing which is valued by riders globally.ŽHarley-Davidson Inc. sold almost 40,000 motorcycles in the EU last year, its secondlargest market after the United States, according to the company. The EU sales make up almost 16.4 percent of HarleyDavidsons worldwide sales. In the U.S., Harley-Davidson sold 147,972 motorcycles last year, according to company data.Increasing international production to alleviate the EU tariff burden is not the companys preference, but represents the only sustainable option to make its motorcycles accessible to customers in the EU and maintain a viable business in Europe,Ž the company said in its pre-pared remarks.Harley-Davidson said it will not raise its prices to avert an immediate and lasting detrimental impactŽ on sales in Europe. It will instead absorb a significant amount of the cost in the near term. It anticipates the cost for the rest of the year to be approximately $30 million to $45 million.Shifting the production overseas could take up to 18 months, the motor-cycle maker said.The company is already struggling with falling sales. In January, it said it would consolidate its Kansas City, Missouri, plant into its York, Penn-sylvania, facility. U.S. motorcycle sales peaked at more than 1.1 million in 2005 but then plummeted during the recession. It wasnt immediately known whether any other facilities would be consolidated. Harley-Davidsons announcement today is the latest slap in the face to the loyal, highly-skilled workforce that made Harley an iconic American brand,Ž Robert Martinez Jr., president of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, said in a statement. The union represents Harley-Davidson workers in Milwaukee, and the Kansas City and York plants.Will Harley use any excuse to ship jobs overseas?Ž Martinez added. Does Harley even under-stand what Made in America means?ŽThe Trump administra-tion has started fights with trading partners around the world, imposing tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, provok-ing retaliation from close U.S. allies including the European Union, Canada, Mexico and Turkey. And it has announced tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese goods „ a tariff list that could swell to $450 billion if Beijing refuses to back down and counterpunches with retaliatory moves.More firms will follow Harleys lead and move production over-seas,Ž says Mary Lovely, a Syracuse University economist who studies trade. Cant blame them. Many companies are being put in very difficult positions.ŽUneasy riderBy Josh BoakThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Sales of new U.S. homes jumped 6.7 percent in May, with purchases in the South accounting for all of the monthly gains.The Commerce Department said Monday that new homes sold last month at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 689,000, up from 646,000 in April. The South reported monthly sales growth of 17.9 percent, while sales were flat in the Midwest and fell in the Northeast and West.For the first five months of this year, new-home sales have risen 8.8 percent as a solid job market and shortage of existing homes on the market have boosted demand. In a sign that buyers are eagerly seeking out properties among a diminished inventory, there was a 17.4 percent surge last month in the sale of homes before construction begins.With fewer buying options among exist-ing homes, homebuyer demand is shifting towards new builds,Ž said Ben Ayers, senior economist at the insurance company Nationwide.Buyers are also facing additional pressures as home values are gener-ally rising faster than incomes and average 30-year mortgage rates have risen to 4.57 per-cent from 3.90 percent a year ago. Both of these factors are increasing the monthly costs for repaying home loans.Aaron Terrazas, a senior economist at the real estate firm Zillow, said that sales growth was strong, yet construction was still running below historic levels given population growth.Were building roughly 2.7 homes for every 1,000 Americans well below historic averages form the 1980s and 1990s of about 4.2 homes per 1,000 residents,Ž Ter-razas said.Still, the government report on new-home sales can be volatile on a monthly basis, espe-cially when any growth or setbacks are focused in one region of the country. Mays median sales price dropped 3.3 percent from a year ago to $313,000. But the decline was largely because the sales growth was concentrated in the South, where new homes are generally cheaper.US new-home sales climbed 6.7 pct in MayHarley, stung by tari s, shi s some of its production overseas BUSINESS Rows of motorcycles sit behind a bronze plate on the showroom ” oor April 26, 2017, at a Harley-Davidson dealership in Glenshaw, Pa. Harley-Davidson, facing rising costs from new tariffs, will begin shifting the production of motorcycles heading for Europe from the U.S. to factories overseas. [KEITH SRAKOCIC/AP FILE]

The excitement does not come without some stress, however, as this is also the time where students conclude all of their hard work from the semester by completing final projects, papers, and exams. In response to his understanding of the great need for taking a break from hours of studying, BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen began BCF president serves midnight breakfastMother and child is the strongest bond. Under a new immigration policy, indescribable pain is inflicted upon children through forced separation. Nearly 2,000 children „ about 100 of them younger than 4-years-old „ are in mass detention centers awaiting family or foster care. Grieving mothers who lost their children to U.S. custody have no access. This is a "zero tolerance" immigration policy used against asylum seekers and undocumented families making illegal entry through Southwest borders. Recently, seated at a dinner table with strangers, I said, "Its heartbreaking. There is no justification for that level of inhumanity." But one man felt there was. "Theyre illegally coming into the country so its their own fault. It seems harsh, but (President Donald) Trumps just showing he means business. It wont last long and itll all get sorted out." I said, "There is no defense ever for traumatizing children." I looked at his wife. She lowered her eyes. She couldnt even look at me and I know why. Woman to woman, we understand, on a visceral level, a mothers anguish. Think about your own children, grandchildren, and imagine them taken away for an unknown length of time toward an uncertain end. Until reunited, the horror might feel like being buried alive. The U.S. was never about tearing families apart. Lets not start now. Former First Lady Laura Bush, called it "cruel" and "immoral." In the Washington Post, Bush wrote: "People on all sides agree that our immigration system isnt working, but the injustice of zero tolerance is not the answer." Currently, this policy is heavy on fear and punishment, but light on logistics.

She passed peacefully from this world surrounded by her family and loved ones following a lengthy illness She was a faithful servant of Christ for her entire life, having make a profession of faith while a child. At the time of her passing, she was a member of First Baptist Church in Bonifay, Florida. Mike, as she was affectionately known to all of her family, friends and loved ones, was born in Panama City, Florida on July 20, 1953 and to her parents Francis B. Hays and Mellie V. Hays. She was raised in Chipley, Florida during her youth and graduated from Chipley High School in 1971. At the time of her passing, she was 64 years old. Shortly after graduating from high school, Mike began working in the banking business with the Florida National Bank in Chipley as a teller and eventually became the head teller. After marrying in February 1973, she and her husband Bill moved to Pensacola, Florida in January of 1974 for him to continue his college education. She transferred to the Florida National Bank in Pensacola and quickly rose through the ranks there to the position of office in trainingŽ. When he completed his degree, they moved to Calhoun County, Florida and she continued her banking career for several more years at the Florida Bank in Chipley again for several months and then at the Ellis Bank in Blountstown. After a period of time in the banking business, she decided she wanted to do something different and opened a small restaurant in Altha, Florida known as the Wildcats Den for a period of time. When her husband accepted a position as a principal in Bonifay in the summer of 1983, she again worked in the banking business for a short time at the Bank of Bonifay. But after just a few months, she began to experience a calling and desire to work with small children. And shortly thereafter, Mike began working in her true and passionate calling of life by opening The Caring Place Daycare and Childcare Center which was located at the First United Methodist Church. After several years of operation in the church facilities, the daycare operation outgrew the space available and Mike and Bill purchased a piece of property and relocated the childcare center to this new location. Upon moving, the name of the childcare operation was changed to Littlest Angels Early Learning Center. She continued to own and operate this childcare and pre-school center until closing the business in 2013. In total, Mike owned and operated these two childcare and pre-school programs for over 25 years meeting the needs of hundreds of families and children during these years in Bonifay. She then began working in the banking business again as the Chipley office branch manager for the Bank of Bonifay. She continued in this work until the bank was closed and taken over by a different company. She stayed out of work for a time but after several months, she began working for the Washington County School Board as the lead prekindergarten teacher at Vernon Elementary School in the fall of 2014. She continued in this capacity for 3 years until being forced to discontinue work in the fall of 2017 due to her health. During her years of owning and operating childcare centers and pre-schools and while working with the school district as a prekindergarten teacher, she touched the lives of hundreds of children. She loved to work with children and help them learn on a daily basis. Without a doubt, working with young children was her true passion and calling in life. Mike loved people and was a gracious and caring person to all she met. She was always willing to go the extra mile to help someone in need and truly had a servants heart. She liked to travel, loved her family and friends deeply and enjoyed spending time with those she loved, especially her grandchildren. One of her favorite activities was to gather several of the grandchildren up and take them all to the latest movie playing on the big screen. These trips always included large buckets of buttered popcorn, candy treats and drinks. She was a great cook with one of her specialties being to prepare large pans of dressing with all of the trimmings at Thanksgiving and Christmas each year. She also loved to decorate her home at Christmas time annually and to display her large collection of Santa Claus and snowman statues. She loved music and enjoyed singing with a beautiful voice, especially as she traveled down the road on family trips. She will be missed greatly by her family, loved ones, and her many friends.

** B6 Wednesday, June 27, 2018 | Washington County NewsVegetarian means a different thing today than it did when I was growing up. Today when we speak of vegetarians, we think of a special group of people that follows a precise diet plan. When I was young, we enjoyed vegetables as a simple way of life. There was seldom a day when Mother didnt cook vegetables. My mouth waters when I think of her wonderful fresh green beans cooked with some small red potatoes. I also liked fried okra (Tommy Bishop and I always wanted okra that rattlesŽ) and tomatoes (yes, I know tomatoes are really fruit, but to me they are much better served as a vegetable), and dont forget a thick slice of Vidalia onion to complete the meal. Now take a look at a young persons plate. How many veggies do you see? Not many. You probably see potatoes (more than likely french fries). They need to learn to appreciate the better foods on the table „ vegetables of all kinds. I received an email from Gainesville, Florida, asking me to include more vegetarian dishes. A note was attached that said awhile ago the farmers market there had a chili contest, and a vegetarian chili won the grand prize. It reminded me that I also make a super vegetarian chili you might like. Vegetarian Chili€ 1 tablespoon oil € cup chopped green bell pepper € cup chopped onion € 1 can (14.5 oz.) Mexican stewed tomatoes € 1 zucchini diced, do not peel € 1 yellow squash, diced € 1 tablespoon chili powder € 1 teaspoon sugar € teaspoon salt or to taste € 1 can vegetable broth (about 2 cups) € 1 (16 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed € 1 (11 oz.) can whole kernel corn € 1 (16 oz.) pinto beans, drained and rinsed € 2 tablespoons margarine € teaspoon Tabasco (or to taste) € Shredded Mexican cheese (to sprinkle over top) € Tortilla chips Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onions. Cook until tender, but not browned. Add tomatoes and cook about 3 minutes. Add zucchini, yellow squash, chili powder, sugar and salt. Cook about 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients and simmer uncovered about 15 minutes. If chili gets too thick, add more water or broth. Serve as suggested. FRESH FOODUSE YOUR GARDENS BOUNTY Let the bounty of your yard inspire a summer party with these tips from Fiskars.com. € What tastes better than homemade pizza? When its topped with fresh ingredients grown in your own pizza garden! Sliced tomatoes, basil leaves, chopped peppers and thinsliced eggplant all make delicious pizza toppings. € Herb-infused cocktails like juleps and mojitos are not only delicious, the avors and fragrances of their delicate leaves shine through when theyre freshly snipped from your garden. CHOCOLATESWEET PAIRINGSElevate your next dinner party by o ering chocolate and drink pairings. White chocolate. Consider serving with a stout beer that will complement the sweetness or a zinfandel that wont overpower the delicate avors. Milk chocolate. A light crisp beer or a refreshing chardonnay bring out the buttery undertones of milk chocolate. Dark chocolate. A bold, rich beer, heavy ale or a sweeter bourbon with a smoky nish pairs nicely with dark chocolate. TIP OF THE WEEKTRY A BREAKFAST COOKOUTTo add a unique air to your cookouts, castello cheese.com recommends shi ing the timeline to the morning instead of the evening. Invite friends and family over for a morning cookout where you make everyone breakfast before spending the day enjoying another activity. „ Brandpoint IN THE KITCHENYou dont need meat to have a complete meal FOODBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowGarlic with pea shoots is a combination worth exploring. Its hardly a secret, especially in Asia where pea greens are widely consumed. In many regions, peas are sown throughout the summer specifically for their greens, every week or so like American farmers plant lettuce. A simple, heaping pile of pea greens in brown sauce is one of my favorite Chinese foods. The culinary deconstructionists in the Cooks Illustrated test kitchen, meanwhile, have broken down the savory nature of pea greens into grassy,Ž slightly bitterŽ and tastes like peas but not sweet.Ž They conclude this flavor is maximized in a pan with nothing more than garlic, salt and fat, and I have seen no evidence to the contrary. Unless your local store has an extra-special produce section, youll only find pea shoots at the farmers market, or in your backyard. Before you harvest from your own pea patch, consider the trade-off between a mouthful of greenery today and a handful of peas tomorrow. The peas you already have in the ground, climbing their way up the trellis and probably showing some pale yellow flowers, perhaps dangling some little peas that your kids are waiting patiently to eat? Youd better let those gangly climbers live. But if they need to be thinned, eat the ones you pull. And you can always trim the shoots for a quick snack. The last 6 inches of a 3-foot plant are heavenly, and a little trim here and there wont stop progress. Pruned plants will continue growing undaunted, sometimes with more vigor in response to the insult. Elsewhere in the garden, the appearance of garlic flowers, aka scapes, marks the New Year according to the garlic calendar. After months of eating soft, sprouting garlic cloves, we can eat new garlic. The plant is alive and juicy and the flavor is sharp and spicy. Scapes are the first taste of the seasons new garlic crop. Scapes, like pea greens, are curly. Each garlic flower wants to go around twice before uncurling and standing up, eventually opening into a purple flower that looks like a celestial explosion. China Train Pea Greens€ 1 bunch pea greens, chopped or left whole € 1 handful garlic scapes, chopped into inch-long sections € 1-2 tablespoons butter € 1-2 tablespoons olive oil € Black pepper, salt, garlic powder, to taste € Bacon (optional, sort of); I keep my bacon frozen and cut it lengthwise off of one end, like slicing a sausage but through the ends of several pieces of frozen bacon at once. Most heavy knives have no problem because the fat prevents bacon from freezing rock-hard. It doesnt take a lot of these little bacon bits, sometimes called lardons, to make a difference in a meal. Use a slice of bacons worth of lardons for this dish. For the Train Sauce: € 4 tablespoons soy sauce € 4 tablespoons oyster sauce € 2 teaspoons “ sh sauce € 2 teaspoons sesame oil € 3 tablespoons lime juice Make the sauce by stirring together the ingredients. Cook the lardons (if using) patiently, until they are crispy, then remove from pan. Add the oil, butter and scapes, turn the pan to medium, and wait for the glorious fragrance of fresh garlic to “ ll the room. Add the pea sprouts; spread them around so they are evenly distributed, and wait until they ” atten down, about 30 seconds. While still bright green, turn the pan to high and add the sauce. Bring to a boil and let the sauce boil 30 seconds, then stir it around and turn it off. Serve with the carbohydrate of your choice, or unadulterated in all of its savory, tangy, green garlicky glory.More to try And finally, a recipe created by my 5-year-old son, Remy: Pea Green Chips1. With a heavy pan on lowest setting, melt 2 tablespoons salted butter. Lay pea shoots in the pan next to each other, taking up the whole pan without c rowding them together too much; keep it all one layer. (Remy uses the leaves exclusively, carefully removing them and discarding the stems.) 2. Keep the heat on the lowest setting. Listen to the pea greens sputter peacefully as their moisture cooks out. Let them cook a half-hour or more until crispy. Remy calls it good here, but predictably, I add some form of garlic: scapes, bulbs, even minced leaves if you have them. Let the the garlic cook, and gently mix it with the delicately crunchy pea greens. Serve on a plate, next to a piece of toast.FLASH IN THE PAN P r u d e n c e H i l b u r n Prudence Hilburngreens Garlic & You might need to look for pea shoots at the farmers market.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, June 27, 2018 B7the tradition of Midnight BreakfastŽ many semesters ago. This delicious meal held on the Monday night of every finals week provides stressed students a much needed study break and proper nourishment. This past semester, students lined up in front of the schools dining facility, The Deese Center, enthusiastically waiting for the late night breakfast to begin. The breakfast opened with a student-led blessing as students funneled through the doors and were served a hot breakfast by Kinchen and other faculty members. Complete with their aprons sewn by the BCF First Lady Ruth Ann Kinchen, servers welcomed each student by filling their plates with large portions of mouth-watering grits, hash browns, eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, and biscuits. The hustle and bustle of finals week disappeared from the campus as students enjoyed each others company and were reminded of the immense support and prayers they receive from the administration. BCF Seniors Abigail Richards and Stacey Andongo have been coming to Midnight Breakfast every semester since they began their journey at BCF but said that this years breakfast was by far, one of the best.Ž Kinchen expressed that he truly enjoys this special time with the students as he encourages them to finish strong and give an account of what they have learned during the semester. Following the late night breakfast, students dispersed to work on study guides, review material, and complete their exams. For more information about upcoming events held at The Baptist College of Florida, please call 800-328-2660 or visit the website atwww.baptistcollege.edu. BREAKFASTFrom Page A10children with their families. Youngsters are warehoused until it gets "sorted out," in the words of our dinner companion. For how long? At a temporary shelter in Brownsville, Texas, 1,500 boys, ages 10 to 17, are locked 21-22 hours per day inside a former Walmart. The average wait for a placement decision is 52 days. The current spike of 2,000 children and more will slow the system as tent cities pop up to meet the demand. The Office of Refugee Resettlement is part of the federal Department of Health and Human Services. From October to December 2017, the agency looked into the whereabouts of 7,635 migrant minors „ teenagers „ who had been assigned placement and HHS reported 1,475 are missing. Psychologically, will PTSD and issues of terror and abandonment figure into the lives and futures of these innocents? Can anyone say with certainty a prolonged, torturous separation from ones mother will not have ill effects on a child? Many intelligent and good Americans find immigration laws complex and hard to fathom. The simple reaction is to support whatever appears to protect our interests. Some may argue that laws and policies are legal and therefore, must be obeyed. Being legal does not make it right. Slavery was legal. Apartheid was legal. The Holocaust was legal. Immigration reform cannot involve destroying families in such a cruel and chaotic way.
