Officers later discovered numerous disturbing videos on Allens phone, including him sexu-ally battering an infant. Allen could now face mandatory life in prison, three life sentences and an additional 580 years in prison for 127 combined counts in the case, including capital sexual battery on a child under 12.According to police reports, the case came to light in August 2016 when Lynn Haven Police Department officers responded to the Goodwill, 1610 State 77, after a girl spotted the phone and walked out of the changing room to tell her father, who summoned the stores man-agement as the man fled.Chipley man convicted on hundreds of counts of child pornAllen By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comWAUSAU One mother received justice after a woman allegedly stole a memorial off of her late son's grave Sunday evening.Wanda Elaine Gadea, 54, of Wausau, was arrested and charged for third-degree felony theft after stealing from a gravesite of a veteran and son at Wausau Memorial Gardens.

Miner went to the drawing the board tossing out more than months worth of amended drafts painstakingly crafted through feedback from the public, the council and guidance of City Attorney Michelle Jordan."It was lengthy, it was deep, it went all over the place and I think it didn't meet the coun-cil's original intent of what they were wanting to do, which was allow restaurants the ability to serve alcohol," he said.He added: "What (City Clerk Patricia Tanner) and I have done is taken the coun-ty's ordinance and redone it into the city's format to create as much likeness as we can between the county and the city."The draft nixes the council's previous decision to restrict alcohol sales from midnight to 7 a.m. daily, instead, loosening that restriction to midnight to 4 a.m. daily. It also incorporates the county's distance rules which is no sale of alcohol within 500 feet of a church, public park, residence and school, and restricts alcohol sales by bottle clubs to 1,000 feet from any church, public park, residence or school.Currently, the city regulates the licensed sale of alcohol within 1,000 feet of any church, school or public park and within 300 feet of New draft on alcohol mirrors county ruleChipley City Council discusses the latest draft of an alcohol ordinance at Thursdays workshop.

** The blue decorative gazing ball was placed on Logan Norwood grave by his mother Janine Newman, 45, of Chipley, on April 25 his would-be 23rd birthday."I bought it for my son, it was his for his 23rd birthday," Newman said Tuesday afternoon. "There's only so much you can buy your child that's dead."Newman said she noticed the ball missing on Sunday evening during her routine visit to her son's grave.Upon learning the theft had taken place, the community and Town of Wausau employees provided Newman with as much information as possible.Gadea's own neighbor and neighbor to Town of Wausau head of maintenance Jimbo Oglesby, Lawrence Hathaway hap-pened to spot the "disco ball" Sunday night.After Oglesby made him aware of the case of the missing ball, Hathaway told his wife to contact Newman."When you go stealing from the cemetery, that's just wrong," he said. "I'm just glad I can help the lady that's the big thing."According to a Washington County Sheriff's Office news release, Gadea told a WCSO deputy that she had taken the glass ball from the grave; however, she had planned on returning it, but was delayed due to being arrested on an unre-lated warrant.According to Washington County Clerk of Courts, Gadea has a history of theft, including serving time in prison for a 1999 felony charge of dealing in stolen property."We've had two benches stolen out of the graveyard and stuff," Oglesby said. "I'm in the graveyard a lot. I knew right where (the ball) was" at the cemetery.When visiting Gadea's house Monday to borrow back a lawn tool, Oglesby said he spotted the ball."It sparkled," he said, noting he then called his co-worker Margaret Riley who reported it to law enforcement."I could see the pain in the lady's eyes," Oglesby said, referring to Newman who had contacted Town of Wausau about the missing item. "For some-one to walk up to a grave and take something ... there's something wrong about that."With their help, Newman was able to lay eyes on the ball to verify if the ball in Gadea's yard was indeed the one she'd gifted to her son."I said 'oh my God, that's it,'" she said. "It's not a typical globe you see. I just knew it was mine."Although there isn't a special engraving on the piece, its "unusual" design represents something special between Newman and her son."My son liked unusual things, so when I seen it I knew that it was something I needed to get him," Newman said. "It glistens; it just sparkles."Norwood, born in Mar-ianna, died at 20 years old from apparent suicide on May 7, 2015 at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona. He was a Chipley High School graduate and an Aircraft Electrical and Environmental Special-ist for the U.S. Air Force.In the late afternoon Tuesday, Newman replaced her memorial at her son's gravesite."It feels great," she said. "I'm so thankful to the community for help-ing. It's not the monetary value of it, it's the senti-mental value."A friend of Newman's offered a $50 reward to the person that recovered the ball. Hathaway and Oglesby weren't personally interested."The best thing that made me proud, I said, to tell the woman who would give the reward, go buy some pretty flowers and put it on the grave," Hathaway said."That money could go to the softball team or something like that. I don't take money for stuff like this never have, I wasn't raised that way," said Jimbo Oglesby. "We just try to take care of each other."Gadea was arrested and booked at the Washington County Jail on the charge of removing a tomb or monument, which is a third-degree felony."The care and concern Washington County citi-zens have for each other is overwhelming," Sheriff Kevin Crews stated in the news release. A2 Saturday, July 7, 2018 | Washington County NewsLloyd Dunkelberger News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Last fall, more than one out of every four students enrolled at state universi-ties came from the Florida college system.But data, presented last week to the Florida Board of Governors, showed that more students from state and community colleges could be moving into universities, where they could earn bachelors degrees that would likely correlate with higher earn-ings over their lifetimes.In the 2016-2017 academic year, 61 percent of the 57,864 students who earned associate of arts degrees at the 28 schools in the college system applied for admission to state universities. More than 30,000 students, or 86 percent, were accepted, but only 25,000 of those students actually enrolled.That data is being collected as part of an effort to improve Floridas two plus twoŽ articulation system. The system allows students to start their post-high-school careers at colleges and earn asso-ciate degrees in two years. They then move on to state universities, where after another two years, they can earn bachelors degrees.Wendy Link, a member of the university systems Board of Governors, said Floridas college-university articulation system is the envy of the nation.Ž But she said the university and college systems are looking to make it better.As with all things, there are ways to improve upon it,Ž said Link, who leads the boards Two (Plus) Two Articulation Committee.Among the issues state higher-education officials will be looking at in the next few months are:€ The 5,000 students who are accepted at state universities but never enroll.€ The 38.8 percent of college students who earn associate degrees but never apply to a state university, a percentage that has increased from 35.5 percent in 2013-2014.€ The 91 percent of col-lege students who only apply to one state uni-versity. Some 95 percent of the students denied university admission applied to only one school, although they are guaran-teed admission to at least one of the 12 state univer-sities once they earn their associate degrees.€ The 27 percent gradu-ation rate, after two years, when college students transfer to state universities. That is much lower than the 49 percent graduation rate for students who enroll for four years at state universities. However, the six-year graduation rate for the college transfer students, at 68 percent, is similar to the 72 per-cent for the non-transfer university students.Madeline Pumariega, chancellor of the college system, said Florida produces more associate degrees than any other state and that 63 percent of Florida high school students who move into post-secondary programs do so at state colleges.Pumariega said there are opportunities for improvement in some areas like the 5,000 students accepted at uni-versities who never enroll. But she also said there are other factors that influence the students decisions, including being place boundŽ because of financial, family or work obligations and not being able to attend schools distant from their hometowns.She said financial aid State looks to boost college-to-university pipeline a dwelling or residence unless two-thirds of property areas within that area give consent.Advan-tages of synchronizing the ordinances,Miner told the cou ncil, included: it allows the recruitment of businesses "that we are trying to recruit"; protects the citizens, parks and churches "from the kind of business we don't want to recruit"; and provides stability to law enforcement.However, the draft is one of several that have been introduced to the council over the past sev-eralmonths and does not necessarily signal that the council is any closer to adopting new rules on alcohol.Miner said he sent the draft to the city attorney and is waiting on her to provide legal guidance.Along with council members Karen Rustin and Ellis Reed, City Attorney Jordan did not attend Thursday's workshop.The rest of the council appeared to support Miner's initiative."It provides continuity," said Mayor John Sasser, adding later, "The first eight or 10 times I've read through it,the ordi-nance fulfills the intent that we originally had.""And it's much nicer from an economic devel-opment side when you're trying to approach some prospects," said council member Tracy Andrews."It's a much easier read," said council member Brent Butler.Chipley City Council will meet in regular session 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, at City Hall, 1442 Jackson Ave. ALCOHOLFrom Page A1It provides continuity. The rst eight or 10 times Ive read through it,the ordinance ful lls the intent that we originally had.ŽMayor John Sasser She went and told her dad, her dad told an employee, but the guy left the other changing room and exited the store before any contact was made by either her dad or the employee,Ž officers reported. The child stated the guy stared at her while he was walking out of the store; she then went back in the changing room and changed back into her own pants.ŽBut security video, a good description of the vehicle and a fast-food receipt left inside the changing room led officers to Allen. He was arrested in September and a search of his vehicle revealed several computer storage devices and computer discs, offi-cials wrote.With Allen wanted on video voyeurism charges, officers obtained a search warrant for the devices, on which officers reported they found images of child pornography and bestiality, as well as photos of Allen committing sexual battery on a child under the age of 12. Some of the recordings dated back more than a year, officers reported.Allen initially was charged with video voy-eurism, possession of child pornography and sexual battery on a child under the age of 12. LHPD then filed 116 counts of possession of photographs or videos that depict sexual performances by a child under the age of 12.He was convicted as charged Tuesday in the case and will be sentenced July 17.

** Washington County News | Saturday, July 7, 2018 A3 LOCAL & STATEStaff ReportCHIPLEY A K9 unit assisted in the arrest of a Chipley woman Sunday.According to a Washington County Sheriff's Office news release, 37-year-old Michelle Leann Tousignant was arrested after K9 Jet detected narcotics during a perimeter search of her vehicle following a traffic stop on State Road 77 near Blue Lake.During a search of the vehicle, the deputy discovered a glass vial containing methamphet-amine in a purse, which belonged to a passenger identified as, the release stated.Tousignant was taken into custody and booked into the Washington County Jail on the charges of possession of metham-phetamine and possession of drug par-aphernalia, accord-ing to the Washington County Sheriffs Office.Chipley woman arrested on meth chargesTousignant News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court on Friday allowed 10 members of the 1998 state Constitution Revi-sion Commission to file a brief in a legal battle about whether Florida is meet-ing its constitutional duty to provide a high-quality system of public schools.Describing themselves as the framersŽ of a 1998 ballot measure that put the duty in the Constitution, the former Constitution Revision Commission members filed a motion in May asking for approval to file a friend-of-the-court brief at the Florida Supreme Court. But attorneys for the state objected. The Supreme Court issued a one-paragraph order Friday allowing the group to file a brief but also appeared to leave open the possibility that the state could object to parts of the brief, known formally as an amicus brief.The order said the approval was granted without prejudice to the subsequent presentation of objections by respondents to specific content of the amicus brief filed.Ž The brief stems from a long-running lawsuit led by the group Citizens for Strong Schools, which argues that the state has failed to comply with the 1998 voter-approved amendment.A Leon County circuit judge and the 1st District Court of Appeal rejected the arguments, leading Citizens for Strong Schools and other plaintiffs to go to the Supreme Court.The 1998 constitutional amendment says it is a "paramount duty of the state to make adequate provision for the educa-tion of all children residing within its borders." The amendment fleshed that out, in part, by saying adequate provision will be made for a "uniform, efficient, safe, secure, and high quality system" of public schools. The plain-tiffs argue the state has not met those standards and should be forced to take steps to carry out the con-stitutional amendment.But the 1st District Court of Appeal said, in part, it is not the role of judges to determine education policy.The 10 former commissioners who sought to file the brief included former Attorney General Bob Butterworth, former Supreme Court Justice Gerald Kogan and former House Speaker Jon Mills.Framers allowed to le brief in education legal ghtBy Tyra L.

Eight of 10 people who contract the disease dont have any symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. When symptoms do prevent, they can include high fever, headache, disorientation, tremors, convulsions, muscle weak-ness and vision loss.West Nile cases usually appear during peak mosquito season, which is in the summer months.Bay health officials said people should Drain and cover.Ž Drain water from trash cans, buckets, pool covers, toys and any other items that hold or collect water. They also advise throwing away old tires, cans and pots. CoverŽ comes into play when people cover their skin with clothing and repel-lent. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-men-thane-diol, and IR3535 are effective, according to the health department, though repellents should be used based on their labels. Not all repellents are suitable for children, for example. Those who work in areas where the pests might lurk are encouraged to wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. Doors and windows should be covered with screens to block out mosquitoes.Drain and cover is easy to remember,Ž Kretzer said. We have a lot of rain in the summer, and you can forget to dump water and check for it. Make sure you take precautions."1 case of West Nile con rmed in Bay CountyWest Nile virus is transmitted by mosquitoes. One human case has been con“ rmed in Bay County. [NEWS HERALD FILE PHOTO] Health o cials: Drain, cover, take precautions against mosquitoesShe said financial aid and the ages of the students are other factors. The new data showed the average age of the enrolled college transfer student was 25.5 years in 2017, compared to a little over 20 years for the four-year university students.Pumariega also said her review of her systems data showed that younger students who earn associate degrees are much more likely to transfer to state univer-sities than older students. She said 84 percent of the students under the age of 25 enrolled at a university, while that percentage is reduced for older students who are balancing work and life.ŽBoard of Governors members also heard testimony about the University of Central Floridas DirectConnect program, which is designed to help state col-lege students transfer to UCF. The Orlando school leads the state university system by taking more than 30 percent of the college transfers.A key member of that program is Valencia College, the third-largest school in the state college system.Sandy Shugart, presi-dent of Valencia, said his school has worked closely with UCF to develop the transfer program that guarantees college students admission at the university once they earn their associate degrees. The program is enhanced by UCF placing counselors on the Valencia campus to advise stu-dents who are part of the program.Shugart said the university system leaders should seek a variety of solutionsŽ to improving the transfer programs and not a single, silver-bullet solution.ŽHe also said while the statewide system should set broad policies, it should look to the schools on a regional basis to develop specific programs.The problem we have to solve in Central Florida is nothing like the prob-lem they have to solve for access in the Panhandle,Ž he said.Although Florida has tried to bring uniformity to its state college and university courses, Shugart said the number one inhibitorŽ for trans-fer students earning their bachelors degrees is the loss of credits when they move to universities. He said there has been an ever-creeping demand for specializationŽ in many of the upper-division majors that has impacted the transfer students.He also warned against simplistic policiesŽ aimed at measuring performance. For instance, he said college transfer students are much more likely to be part-time students at the universities than the four-year students who are more likely to be full-time.Shugart said metrics seeking to measure the time it takes to earn a degree need to be nuancedŽ enough to take that factor into account.

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett The U.S. Supreme Court last week handed President Donald Trump a significant victory by upholding the governments ability to restrict entry into America from a handful of hostile nations, many of which are predominantly Muslim. The high courts 5-4 ruling will cause Trumps critics to ratchet up their outrage meters another notch or two. But the majority was right to kill this political theater masquerading as jurisprudence. As we see it, despite Trumps opponents anger and condemnation of the order as religious bigotry and/or racism, the most disturbing aspect of this ruling is that it was not unanimous. Team Trump certainly stumbled badly coming out of the gate in trying to implement the extreme vettingŽ that Trump had promised as a candidate. But the final version of the policy, reworked following previous setbacks in federal court, seemed bulletproof. Foremost among the courts recent reasons for upholding the directive was federal law itself. With the 1952 Immigration and Naturalization Act, Congress delegated authority over controlling who enters the country to the president. That law empowers the president to suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate,Ž if he believes their entry would be detrimentalŽ to U.S. interests. Roberts observed that the law exudes deference to the President in every clause.Ž Moreover, Trumps final order had been issued after a global review of national security matters, Roberts noted, and there was persuasive evidence that the entry suspension has a legitimate grounding in national security concerns.Ž Thus, it was squarely within the scope of Presidential authority.Ž As a result, the critics primary argument „ that the proposal was anti-Muslim „ just didnt wash with the majority. Visitors from many nations that are more than 90 percent Muslim „ such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, Algeria, Morocco and Turkey „ were still free to seek entry to America. Roberts observed that some Muslim-majority nations had been removed, and that the order potentially affected just 8 percent of the worlds Muslims located in countries that, the chief justice pointed out, were previously designated by Congress or prior administrations as posing national security risks.Ž The policy is expressly premised on legitimate purposes and says nothing about religion,Ž the majority observed. Roberts noted that the heartŽ of the objections to the order by citizens, lower-court judges and the Supreme Courts minority was the alleged animus toward Muslims that Trump expressed in statements as a candidate and president. Yet, he argued, refreshingly, the issue before us is not whether to denounce the statements,Ž but instead to weigh those against the authority of the Presidency itself.Ž Clearly, as Roberts indicated, Trump was on firm legal, historical and constitutional ground in issuing the order. For us, the same could not be said for those who challenged the president. This editorial first appeared in Gatehouse Media sister paper The News Herald.Justices nally consider whats normal ANOTHER VIEW If you stay in the news business long enough, you're inevitably going to run into a reader who has a grievance sometimes legitimate, sometimes not against their hometown newspaper. Sometimes it's because they feel they've been portrayed unfairly in a story. Or they feel like a reporter or editor did not give a sufficient enough airing of their views. Or sometimes it's because they don't like the font of the baseball box scores. I have been on the receiving end of those complaints. And it can occasionally be profoundly unpleasant. But these aggrieved readers rarely, if ever, march into a newsroom and open fire on the people with whom they have that disagreement. Until now. Last week, Jared Ramos, 38, was arrested and charged with killing five journalists, and wounding two more people, at The CapitalGazette of Annapolis, Md. Published reports indicated that he a had a long-standing grievance with the newspaper, one that he took to a murderous extreme. As a matter of full disclosure, I'll note that, years ago, I interviewed for a job at The CapitalGazette. It ended up not being the right fit. But I remember the staff and editors there as kindhearted and dedicated professionals, and my soul just aches for them and their community. The day after the shooting, journalists across the country, including those at my employer, went to work under a new normal. Sometimes, armed guards greeted reporters where previously there had been none. It was a weird way to feel. But it might also be a necessary one. There are people in all kinds of jobs soldiers, law enforcement officers, teachers who go to work in the morning and just want to make it home safely to their families at the end of the day. After all, anything that brings us closer to our readers and empathizing with their day-today concerns is a good thing. It makes the reporting better. And it makes us better people as well. And now we know, a little bit better, what that feeling is like. And hopefully, if we do it right, and we're smart about it, that perspective will inform our journalism. Local papers are funny. People are invested in them. They feel a sense of ownership, even in a time when a local paper's actual ownership may be many hundreds of miles away in the headquarters of some journalism conglomerate (or hedge fund). Local news outlets are a reflection of their community the entire community, irrespective of skin color, political beliefs or creeds. It can be difficult to capture and reflect that myriad of voices sometimes. But we keep trying anyway. It helps that the journalists who work at local news outlets live in their communities; they shop at the same grocery stores, attend the same churches and send their kids to the same schools. Like our readers, we sweat paying the same bills, save for the same rainy days and try to sock away a little extra cash for that week at the beach in the summer. We get our hands dirty cutting the grass. We turn up the radio when a good song comes on. And we get angry when our favorite team loses (don't even get me started on the Orioles right now). But there is a sense right now that journalists are somehow the other. And some of that is our fault. And I have given serious thought to the consequences of my words. And some of it is the product of external forces. And sometimes that is a fair criticism. And sometimes it is not. But on a day like this, when five families aren't going to have their loved ones coming home to them, none of what's different about us matters. If you try hard enough, you can find a way to disagree with almost anyone about anything. Finding the common ground becomes a rarer and rarer thing. It now just feels like one of those times when there's way more to bring us together than to set us apart. We can get back to arguing tomorrow, if that's your thing. Maybe, right now, we all just take a breath.Journalists arent so di erent from our readersI have done the math. I'm neither bragging nor complaining just stating the facts: including my initial meeting with my wife, I've gone on precisely SIX first dates in my entire lifetime. World-weary serial daters may be aghast at that limited number, but it does have its advantages. If anyone ever invents a time machine, maybe "kill baby Hitler" and "stop Lee Harvey Oswald" will still rank ahead of "carry a can of Mace for that geeky guy whose clothes don't match" as urgent projects. I'm taking stock of my past pursuit of maidens fair because Great Britain's Daily Mail Online website recently carried a story titled "What not to say on a first date: singles reveal the VERY candid revelations that sent potential partners running for the hills." Yes, single parenthood, criminal records, messy finances, sports rivalries, political prejudices, medical issues, lingering affection for an ex-lover, egotism, clinginess and other factors can end a romance before it even begins. Young or old, male or female, gay or straight, divorced/widowed or never married, the danger of bad first impressions remains. Although traditionalists steadfastly assert, "Honesty is the best policy," and although social-media-savvy singles can find countless romantic pointers, there is still a danger of getting nervous or overconfident and divulging too much information. My inside sources have supplied a few of the dating bloopers that didn't make it into the Daily Mail article: € "Kids eat free? Here, I knew this bib and pacifier would come in handy someday. And fill your diaper with ketchup packets..." € "I have a very positive outlook on the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. When life gives you restraining orders, make lemonade." € "My boss is such a clueless old tyrant. Hey, did you know you look an awful lot like the girl in the framed photo on his desk?" It seems like only yesterday that I was venturing out there and risking rejection. Soon, my teenage son Gideon will enter the dating world. My teenage son Gideon, who has always dreamed of building a TIME MACHINE. Perhaps he'll invent one in time to correct any dating mistakes he makes. "I was just joking about YOU wearing the bib and pacifier. Here, we'll put it on baby Churchill. Ask if they have complimentary cigars for the diaper..."Have you made these b lunders on a rst date?

[ROB HOLLEY PHOTOS | CONTRIBUTOR] Jamar Massaline holds back the ball as Jarrad Beckwith ” ies in the air behind him during the 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament held at Vernon High School last Saturday. The Associated PressMOSCOW „ What to watch for in Fridays matchups at the World Cup quarterfinals: Teammates vs. TeammatesThe first match features a number of teammates on their professional clubs facing off against each other when France takes on Uruguay in Nizhny Novgorod. France forward Antoine Griezmann plays at Atletico Madrid alongside Uru-guayan defenders Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez; Godin is god-father to Griezmanns daughter. Those ties are so thick that Uruguay striker Luis Suarez needled Griezmann this week for trying to be Uruguayan. Suarez himself will find a Bar-celona teammate on the other side of the pitch in French defender Samuel Umtiti.With so much talent on both sides, the late game in Kazan features even more intrasquad intrigue: Manchester Citys Gabriel Jesus, Fernand-inho and Danilo against teammates Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bruyne of Belgium; Brazils Willian against Chelsea teammates Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi and Thibaut Courtois, all Belgian; and Belgiums Thomas Meunier against his Brazilian teammates at Paris Saint-Germain „ Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Neymar. Speed and skill vs. Solid DBelgium is scoring almost a goal a game more than any other team in the tournament, with 12 in four matches. Brazil, to the surprise of some, has allowed just one goal in its four games. Only one other team has been that stingy: Uruguay, which will face a France attack loaded with speed and scorers. In both cases, something will have to give. Neymar being NeymarThe most expensive player in the world has had a strong tournament so far and is the biggest star whose team is still alive. Some think Neymar could even win his first FIFA player of the year award if Brazil wins it all. But hes increasingly catching grief about his flopping, diving and writhing around after minor contact. Will that prompt the referee to give the Belgian defenders more leeway, or will Neymar keep getting the calls?First faceo features familiar foes By Jerome PugmireThe Associated PressST. PETERSBURG, Russia „ Kylian Mbappe and Thierry Henry both attended Frances Clairefontaine academy before playing as left wingers at Monaco, and they both won French league titles as teenagers.Mbappe wants to repli-cate another one of Henrys accomplishments „ a World Cup title for France in his first tournament.Henry, 40, is Frances leading scorer with 51 goals, the 19-year-old Mbappe is Les Bleus new sensation, with three, matching Henrys total from 1998 and 2006. If Mbappe scores again, France plays Uruguay in Fri-days quarterfinal he would become the first Frenchman since 1958 to score four at a World Cup since Just Fontaines record 13 over six games in 1958.Henry and Mbappe both share the electric pace Fon-taine had, but with a far more rounded game than their illustrious predecessor.I dont really like to com-pare players from different generations, but they have a similar profile, with their speed and ability to beat players,Ž said France coach Didier Deschamps, captain of the 1998 champions. I can only wish Kylian the same career as Thierry.ŽDeschamps said that after Mbappes debut in a quali-fier at Luxembourg in March 2017. He already was hailing Mbappes maturity.His biggest strength is his composure when hes through on the goalkeeper,Ž Deschamps said. Thats very rare at his age, and its why hes so efficient.ŽMbappe showed that in a 4-3 win against Argentina last Saturday scoring two clinical second-half goals after earning a first-half penalty kick with an astonishing run from deep inside his own half. Mbappe stole the spotlight from five-time FIFA Player of the Year Lionel Messi, and he emerged as a candidate to join Neymar in the conversation for who is the worlds best player after Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo move on. Mbappe has played as a wide forward and as a central striker for both France and Paris Saint-Germain, joining from Monaco last year in a deal worth 180 million euros ($216 million). Playing alongside Neymar and Edinson Cavani in a star-studded attack, he helped PSG win all three domestic titles.Like Henry, Mbappe grew up in a Paris suburb: Mbappe in Bondy, Henry in Les Ulis. Mbappe has been active in the community and he says he will donate his World Cup earnings to a charity that organizes sports for children with disabilities.Mbappe scored six goals in his first 19 international games and Henry seven: three at the 1998 World Cup and two when France won the European Championship in 2000.Henrys pro career was launched in 1994 by Monaco coach Arsene Wenger, who brought him to Arsenal from Italian side Juventus five years later. Henry scored at least 20 league goals in six consecutive seasons for Arsenal, and a club record 228 in all competitions for the Gunners.Wenger moved Henry to Monacos first team after Henry scored more than 40 goals the under-17 team in one year.Henry already had a great attitude. He was already mature and didnt need anyone to control him,Ž youth coach Paul Pietri told The Associated Press. He crushed everyone with his physique, his strength. He could carry the attack all by himself, he could do everything.ŽA 76-year-old Corsican now in retirement after nearly 30 years on Monacos staff, Pietri recalled exactly when Henrys natural classŽ first stood out.We went to a tournament in Italy, which we always did at the start of the year,Ž Pietri said. We beat Lazio 5-3, with three goals from Henry. Then we drew 3-3 against AC Milan, with three goals from Henry. I told myself This lad can play with the pros. Wenger took him.ŽBut Pietri adds a note of caution when predicting Mbappes future.What we need to see is if Mbappe lasts 15 years. You shouldnt forget Henry is Arsenals leading scorer, the best they ever had,Ž Pietri said.The French connectionMbappe and Henry would have another link if France wins cupFrance captain Thierry Henry celebrates after scoring a penalty against Austria during their World Cup 2010 qualifying soccer match, Oct. 2009 at Stade de France in Saint Denis, north outskirts of Paris, France. Kylian Mbappe and Thierry Henry are seemingly linked by destiny. While Henry is Frances leading scorer with 51 goals and among the greatest forwards of the modern era, the 19-year-old Mbappe is the new French sensation tipped to become perhaps even the worlds best. [FRANCOIS MORI/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE] Mbappe wants to replicate another one of Henrys accomplishments „ a World Cup title for France in his rst tournament.


** A8 Saturday, July 7, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowThe summer solstice has snuck by, again. Depressing, I know, but as our hemisphere prepares for its date with winter, there is no need to overthink the situation. The roses are still fragrant, and the tomatoes are still ripening, because the heat has only just begun, and we cant lose sight of the big picture: This is a very good time to drink sangria. By sangria, I mean a spectrum of wine-and-fruit-based cold drinks, some of which have more merit than others. At one end is sangria itself, the famous Spanish punch made of wine, fruit, juice and liquor thats adored by sun worshippers, tourists and underage drinkers. This end of the spectrum is one of incomprehensible complexity, as there are too many permutations of all of these ingredients, plus shots of simple syrup, 7 Up and the like to keep track of. One popular variation, for example, is the Italian-American version of the Eastern Seaboard, which contains brandy, triple sec and peach schnapps, along with the fruit. You will find these ingredients in the award-winning sangria pitchers of Spain Restaurant in Cranston, Rhode Island, and in the shared kitchen of a certain Cape Cod vacation spot, where a certain clan of Italian families shows up every solstice like clockwork to share a kitchen with my family (long story). One of the clan matriarchs, Diane, told me her recipe and shared this nugget: While most recipes call for merlot or cabernet, she advises a red burgundy. Its drier, she says, and has that woody taste.Ž I enjoyed the fact that a celebrated French wine is the secret ingredient in the Italian-American version of a Spanish drink, and filed it away just in case. But to be honest, I was having trouble getting excited about her sangria. It was both too delicious and too alcoholic. This may sound like a win-win, but I find it counterproductive to add extra sugar so you can add extra booze. Summer may be gone in the blink of an eye, but its also a grind, and I want to keep cool, keep hydrated and keep going. I prefer the other end of the sangria spectrum. The side thats bitter, simple and bubbly. Its called tinto de verano, which translates to red wine of summer.Ž In Spain, its what the locals have settled on as the ideal antidote for the Iberian heat. Credit for its creation is given to Andalusian restaurateur and bullfight promoter Federico Vargas, but credit is hardly due. Its such a simple recipe that its creation was inevitable. Tinto de Verano€ Red wine € Sprite (or the Spanish equivalent) Open both items, mix and serve chilled. The lemon and lime fine-tune the flavor, as the cold and bubbles do their things. Its numbing and stimulating. Pleasantly exhilarating. This simple drink can be doctored in many ways. Ice, for example, is a great way to chill it if your glass and ingredients were not already frigid. Squeezed slices of lemon and lime, meanwhile, will significantly enhance the citrus pizzazz. A shot of lemonade here, a dash of vermouth there „ to the point that you have basically made sangria. And as the Italians and others have shown, there is plenty of room for exploration on the busy, fruity side of this continuum. Drying out Here is my recipe for extra-dry tinto de verano. It is optimized for maximum hydration, minimal added sugars and just the right level of buzz to keep you going. I call it Verano Seca, which means dry summer.Ž If you have access to unsprayed roses, wild or domestic, I recommend harvesting some petals and using them in this drink. Verano Seca€ Burgundy € Bubbly water (unsweetened) € Lemon and lime slices € Ice € Rose petals (optional but highly recommended) Add ice “ rst, then bubbles, followed by the squeezed citrus slices. Finally, add the wine. When added in this order, the wine stays atop the bubbly. For a tropical delight, try pineapple and coconut as a flavor combo. Those are two of my favorite ingredients and are great for those who enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. The possibilities with coconut and pineapple are unlimited, so you might want to try your hand at coming up with a new dessert using these ingredients. I am considering using cream of coconut as part of the liquid in place of a little of the half and half. Pineapple Coconut Cookie Pudding€ 2/3 cup sugar € 2 tablespoons ” our € 3 egg yolks € 2 cups milk € 1 teaspoon vanilla extract € 15 to 18 crunchy coconut cookies (not the macaroon candy type) € 1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, well drained € Whipped cream Combine sugar and ” our in heavy saucepan. Stir to mix. Add egg yolks, but do not mix yet. Gradually add milk, stirring yolks into mixture with it. Cook over medium heat until pudding begins to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, coconut cookies, and pineapple. Mix well. Allow to cool slightly. Top each serving with whipped cream.Hawaiian Bread Pudding€ cup butter € 1 quart half and half € 2 eggs € 6 to 7 cups slightly packed Hawaiian sweet bread chunks € 1 (15 oz.) can pineapple tidbits, drained € 1 cup coconut € 1 teaspoon coconut extract Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in 9x13x2 inch pan. Set aside. In large bowl, combine half and half and eggs. Beat until well mixed. Stir in bread, pineapple, coconut and extract. Pour into pan and bake 55 to 60 minutes. Serve with this sauce: Sauce: € 1 (8 oz.) tub pineapple cream cheese € 1 cup confectioners sugar € cup dulce de leche ice cream topping (or caramel ice cream topping) € cup milk Combine cream cheese and confectioners sugar. Beat until blended. Add ice cream topping and milk. Beat until smooth. Serve with warm bread pudding. HEALTHY EATINGDIET FADS TO AVOIDHere are a few health fads that arent as nutritious as you may have heard: Cooking with coconut oil: A recent study by MB Clinical Research found that coconut oil increases cholesterol. Juice diets and cleanses: A diet limited to coldpressed juices wont provide enough essential vitamins and minerals for a healthy diet. Granola bars: They are packed with whole grains, but many contain an unhealthy amount of sugar. EASY RECIPEGRILLED CORN ON THE COB€ 4 ears of corn € 1/4 cup hot wing sauce € 1/2 cup crumbled Salemville Blue Cheese Heat grill over low heat. Peel and clean corn. Brush each ear with hot wing sauce and wrap in aluminum foil, being careful to fully seal corn in foil. Place on the top rack of the grill and close the lid, cooking until fork tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the grill, carefully open the aluminum foil and brush with additional hot wing sauce. Place on plates and sprinkle each ear with blue cheese.

[JACQUELINE BOSTICK | THE NEWS] At age 64, I often feel with itŽ and young. But when its patently untrue, I then say to my husband, Gee, I thought I was hip.Ž David replies, You are, Suze, its just the hip of 40 years ago.Ž Where on the dividing line do I fall? Meaningful conversation guides the way. During a visit with a friend of 49 years, conversationŽ was our theme. You might say, Everyone has conversations with friends. Why make it a theme?Ž Because nowadays, opposing views on hot topics causes strain. One might say, Well, just avoid those subjects.Ž Is our friendship strong enough to withstand non-agreement? We put it to the test. There are bonds we share. As children we played outside, willy nilly and unsupervised, until dusk. Now children who do the same are labeled free range kids.Ž Our grandkids are technology experts. Where did all my photos on my cell phone disappear to? Whos listening when we talk out loud to Google Home? If anything ever happens to David, will I die of exposure in my own house because I cant figure out three-zone heating? She said, Life was simpler when we were young. We were so innocent. Now life is so dangerous.Ž I looked at her, Its official. Youre old.Ž Innocent? Less dangerous then? In San Francisco, the Summer of Love in 1967 brought in free love and drugs. Bombings and napalm strafings entered our living room through televised reports of the Vietnam War. In 1966, the National Guard marched down my street in a show of force against rioting that broke out due to a police shooting of an unarmed black teenager. I reminded her, Do you remember when your mom was terrified of you coming to visit me because Zebra killers were at large?Ž (The Zebra murdersŽ were random shootings in 1973-74 that targeted white victims. ZebraŽ referred to the ZŽ radio channel used by police.) From there, we jumped into gun control, immigration reform and reliable journalism. We opined freely, with no doubt as to where the other stood. But when things veered in a negative direction, an intuitive stop sign appeared in our brains, and we put on the brakes. We are still passionate, but perhaps age graces us with the ability to listen. I learned from, or, at least, appreciated her viewpoints. She returned the favor. I call it Christian kindness with a healthy dose of Buddhist detachment. My takeaway: Strong-willed as we both are, there was a time when we might have out-shouted each other, or stomped out of the room, hurling sarcasm over a shoulder. But not now. Our peaceful (albeit animated) approach was a measuring stick as to how much we have grown in harnessing our egos. Mellowing with age? Perhaps, but age highlights the zoom of time. Respect and listening have far reaching benefits beyond senseless name-calling. As friends for decades, we may not understand each others politics. Through meaningful conversation, we seek and find love as our common ground.Meaningful conversation: A themeIf you would like to include an event in this list, email information to: Church to host celebration for Clayton and Blanche PhillipsCARYVILLE … Spirit Filled Church of God in Christ will host a 60th Year Celebration for Deacon Clayton and Missionary Blanche Phillips at 11 a.m. and at 3 p.m. Sunday, July 8.

GOOD BOOK?"Pursue, Overtake, Recover" by Kerry KirkwoodMany Christians under-stand that Jesus redeemed them from their sins, and because of this, they are right with God. But there is more...much more! Redemption is not just a ticket into Heaven.
