The School Board in general favors the tax. However, the public has differing views."Enough is enough on the tax hikes. Manage the money better with what you got," wrote Billy Worley. "There's too much tax being robbed from the hard working people in this county already."Taylor has repeatedly stated that no one likes taxes; however, advocating for the tax, he has reminded School Board members and the public that the district has shown itself responsible and accountable over existing funds some-thing a r ecent state mandated audit on technology and capi-tal projects demonstrated.He said he planned to schedule school tours to further illustrate how and where the funds could be used.Vernon City Council Mayor Tina Sloan spouted words of confidence in the commitment of the school district to use the tax money in a way most bene-ficial to students and the future of the county. She also curbed some of the political angst popping up on the thread."No one wants more or increased taxes; but we all want our children and grand-children to be educated and successful," Sloan wrote. "Ive heard people say But I dont have kids in the school system. Where do people think our leaders, our doctors, our builders andour dreamers of tomorrow are coming from?"Politically speaking, she added, "The commissioners are not assessing the tax they are giving us the citizens the opportunity to decide. The school board are doing their job. They are looking to the future of our children."One issue on the Facebook thread birthed the notion that the money would be used to fund athletics in some way. It's important to note that is a false idea; the monies garnered from the surtax would be earmarked for capital outlay projects and technology improvements. The surtax is a common one several school districts pick up in order to make improvements mostly capital improvements across their districts. Wash-ington County School District recently made the proposal to Washington County Board of Commissioners in order to get the referendum on the August ballot.Other opinions varied, including contempt for taxes in general and nods to civic engagementthat informs the democratic process."Taxation is theft," Chip Goodson wrote."For everyone saying the taxes keep getting raised or there is no transparency or you have no voice...my ques-tion to you is, when is the last time you sat in a (Washington County Board of Commis-sioners) meeting? The board is really good at soliciting and listening to the commu-nity inputs," wrote former County AdministratorHank Hamilton. "Be active in your local government," he wrote at the end of his post.The recommendation passed its first public hearing. Superintendent Joseph Taylor has been making the case for the tax at municipal meetings, and is scheduled to do a presentation at Thursday's Washington County Chamber of Commerce meet-ing to be held at 12 p.m. noon at Northwest Florida Com-munity Hospital.Public weighs-in on half-cent tax proposal Enough is enough on the tax hikes.

Since 1976, the Wells were actively involved in the Panhandle Watermelon Festival where one would easily find Hester in her iconic watermelon seed sack dress.In the 30 years that Judge Wells was chair-man of the festival, Hester played an integral role as well. Current Chairman the Hon. Judge Colby Peel said the loss of Mrs. Hester is deeply felt because of all she has done for the festival over the years."No family has meant more or done more for the Panhandle Watermelon Festival than the Wells family, and Mrs. Hester will be greatly missed by all who knew her," Peel said.Wells attended Esto School through the ninth grade and then trans-ferred to Holmes County High School where she graduated in 1945. She was a member of Mt. Zion Church near Esto, and was baptized in nearby Ten Mile Creek.After marrying Perry on October 4, 1952 in Cottonwood, Alabama, the Wells bought their first home in Panama City. Over the years, the family's religious service would extend to Primitive Baptist churches in Panama City, and the Bethel community and Chipley Chapel in Washington County.In 1970, the Wells family moved to Chipley to own and operate the Sears Catalog store something of which Hester was an integral part. The couple later owned and operated a Montgomery Ward Cata-log store. Wells later ran the historic T.L. Wells and Bro. department store as well as opened the Northwest Florida Music Park and Campground.Hester and Perry had four boys, Tim, Grant, Emory and Gordon along with nine grandchildren one of whom preceded Hester in death.

By David Adlersteindadlerstein@starfl.com 850-653-8894EASTPOINT „ The light at the end of a long, dark, fire-ravaged tunnel is reflecting this week off the shine of a new trailer.Through a coordinated effort assisted by Franklin County, state and federal officials, more than two dozen trailers for tempo-rary housing began arriving Wednesday, to help shelter the 36 families displaced by the Lime Rock Road fire that ravaged Buck Street, Ridge Road and Wilderness Road on June 24.Twenty-four trailers had all arrived and were being cleaned and prepared Saturday at the Franklin County Sheriff's Office. An additional three travel trailers have been donated by individuals.At a special meeting Monday afternoon, county officials voted unanimously to approve the purchase of 24 surplus mobile homes from the federal General Ser-vices Administration. The mobile homes were used by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to shelter victims of Hurri-canes Irma in the Keys.The price tag for the temporary units $8,500 each, for a total cost, including transportation from Homestead, of $204,000. This represents a savings of 37 percent over their market value.The county fronted the money for the trailers, but they wont be owning them long, as they will soon be transferred into the hands of the Capital Area Community Action Agency, which will be administering their usage. Regulations restrict the purchase to government entities, which is why the county had to serve as a middle man for the transaction.The nonprofit Capital Area will oversee the units for up to six months and provide case management to help the displaced fami-lies, including 83 children, find permanent housing, said Tim Center, CEO of the Community Action Agency.Were excited that this could be a potential model for other community action programs in the state and country,Ž Center said. And were also excited about being able to help the displaced families rebuild after the disaster.ŽCounty commissioners sounded a hopeful note at the Monday special meeting, pleased at the comparative swiftness the deal had been completed with the help of both U.S. senators, the governor and the staff at the Florida Division of Emergency Management.But they werent without their anger, led by Commissioner Noah Lockley, who argued that Wildlands Service Inc., the Tallahassee company that handled a controlled burn that ultimately got out of control and triggered the whirlwind blaze, should be doing more.Commissioner Cheryl Sanders said the controlled burn had been done on land owned and administered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Chairman Smokey Parrish said once investigators from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services determined that the cause had been from the controlled burn, supposed to have been completely extinguished six days prior, Wildlands Service Inc. lawyered up,Ž and it could be as long as four years before any settlement dollars flow into the affected property owners.Were never going to make them whole again,Ž Sanders said.We got a lawyer,Ž Lockley said. Let him send them something, and lets we lawyer up. Let them know we aint playing.ŽCommissioners stressed that Capital Area would be in charge of determin-ing who would receive the FEMA trailers, with prop-erty owners topping the list. Lockley stressed that he felt renters, and even those without a docu-mented claim to residency, should be giving priority as well.They didnt ask for this,Ž he said. If they were on the books or not, they were there.ŽCommissioner Ricky Jones, who has served as point man on the ground for the county while the other commissioners were away at a Florida Associa-tion of Counties meeting, told Commissioner William Massey he estimated the county also had lost as much as $20,000 in asphalt road work because of the fire.Jones, who as a child experienced a fire that burned his family out of their home, served as a quiet, reassuring presence in the days immediately after the fire, even though the affected areas are just outside his district. He told his colleagues he was grateful to see their unified effort at this stage. This was no tabletop exercise,Ž he said.While there was not an extensive discussion about the legal ramifications of the fire, County Attorney Michael Shuler advised commissioners they would not have legal standing in matters that involve pri-vate property owners.They (Wildland Services) are not going to voluntarily resolve these lawsuits,Ž Shuler said, whose family previously secured a judgment of more than $700,000 for timberlands they owned that were destroyed from a controlled burn by the state.Shuler said Capital Area will pay for all title costs associated with the trailer purchase, and he expected that to be completed within the next two to three weeks.He also noted that the county has the ability to buy other equipment, such as air conditioners, from the GSA at a discount.Massey noted that an enormous amount of household furnishings, from coffee pots and dishes to mattresses, have been accumulated thanks to the generosity of donors from throughout the region.We could equip 10 houses,Ž he said.Tress Dameron, emergency services coordinator, told commis-sioners that of the affected properties, 16 were residences owned by people who owned the land as well, while another 13 were places rented by families as their primary residence. Four were non-primary residences, she said, with another eight places not destroyed but in need of repair. The remaining damages were of an as-yet undetermined number of sheds, outbuildings, vehi-cles, boats, tools and other equipment.24 trailers arrive for Eastpoint victimsCounty leaders: State settlement dollars unlikely for years

Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Congre ssional committees recently brought the executives of opioid manufacturers to Washington to explain their role in Americas opioid epidemic. Sadly, the executives largely shifted the blame elsewhere. At its peak in 2012, physicians wrote 282 million opioid prescriptions „ enough for 8 in 10 Americans, Politico reported. Fortunately, the latest statistics suggest that the prescription surge has dramatically slowed. But the surge drove home a somber reality in this country: opioids have been Americas national pill. The fact is that other developed nations have not experienced the spikes in opioid use, opioid abuse and opioid-related overdoses that we have in this country. Thats led hundreds of cities and localities to sue opioid manufacturers „ in part to obtain funding to treat opioid abuse victims. If officials and authorities would have followed the money, it should have been easy to spot the tidal wave of opioid use. In a statement reported by the Hill website, Rep. Gregg Harper, a Mississippi Republican, questioned why drug distributors repeatedly failed to report suspicious orders of opioids or exercise effective controlsŽ as more and more pills flooded America. The answer seems pretty clear: because tremendous profits were being made by keeping quiet „ and keeping the pills flowing. The opioid epidemic was also fueled by a dangerous misperception that opioids carried low risks of addiction. To combat this, a trade association for the opioid manufacturers said they support policies that fully reveal the effects of opioids and decrease the likelihood of them being overprescribed. Its critical that our elected leaders dont overreact to what we now know about the need to control opioid use; they cant go to the other extreme of making opioids nearly impossible to obtain. Politico identified some of the potential unintended consequences of overreacting to the opioid crisis, it will increase the difficulty of obtaining relief for patients with valid pain issues „ and individuals nearing the end of life and distract us from focusing on the need for more non-drug therapies. These are all good points. But the bottom line hasnt changed: The reason why so many officials are now scrambling to act „ and at the risk of doing so in overzealous fashion „ is because too few of them took any action as the opioid crisis gathered momentum. Why werent questions asked? Why wasnt oversight done? Why werent whistleblowers taken seriously instead of being turned away, as reports suggest? When there is an explosion in the use of a particular drug, a governmental agency should know about it right away „ and it should report what it knows to Congress right away. The overdose epidemic is a widespread failure, and government must surely take its share of the blame for it. (A version of this editorial originally appeared in the (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union, a sister paper of Gatehouse Media.)No oversight as opioid epidemic grew ANOTHER VIEW By Charita GoshaySomeone far more clever than me once described the Declaration of Independence as the worlds most famous break-up letter.Ž Independence Day exists because American colonists, fed up with the British Crowns greed and disrespect, were convinced they could do bad all by themselves, so it was inevitable. In essence, the letter reads: Dear George: Drop dead.Ž Even so, it wasnt easy. We tend to think the Declaration was printed and signed, someone lit fireworks and that was that. Apart from the sure threat of being hanged for treason, the Founders also bickered and argued among themselves about what kind of country they wanted. Some called for George Washington to serve as king. He didnt even want to be president. Others laid bare their hypocrisy when they demanded freedom from the British, while compromising on slavery. It would come back around to bite, inflicting wounds unhealed to this day. In some ways, the question of our national identity remains unanswered „ and therein lies our genius. We Americans can pivot and reinvent ourselves better than anyone on Earth. Though our core tenets remain, we are not remotely the same country we were in 1776, or even 1976. What would they think? We can only guess what the Founders might think of the America of 2018, and how weve evolved from being a country in which only white men with land could vote to one in which practically anyone can be elected president „ and practically anyone has. They would be astonished that a nation that couldnt pull the trigger on slavery elected a black man president. Twice. They would not be at all shocked, however, that a woman has not been elected president because it never would occur to them that such a thing was possible. So far, they appear to be right. Theyd likely be thrilled at their own brilliance in devising a system that has withstood the foolishness and abuses of their descendants, all while maintaining its central purpose: self-governance and the preservation of individual rights. We have to suppose that some of them might be surprised were still here, though it sometimes feels as if we, too, are breaking up. A new Gallup Poll finds that for the first time in years, less than half of us describe ourselves as extremely proudŽ to be American. Just 47 percent of those polled identified themselves as such, down from 70 percent in 2004. Torn fabric Our common garment of destiny,Ž as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. described it, is at risk of unraveling; its threads being stressed by anger and resentment; the fabric being soiled and torn asunder by fear and demagoguery. Among extremists and fear-mongers, there always has been talk of secession and even a second civil war. It all sounds silly on its face, but we know what happens to a house that remains divided. Weve been so good at democracy for so long, weve taken for granted it never will come undone. That a foreign adversary unleashed an army wielding laptops and false ads in 2016, and made the kind of inroads that no bombs ever could, should give us all nightmares. It exposed our arrogance in thinking that no one would dare, and our failure to learn the lessons of Sept. 11, when a small group was able to wield online propaganda like a sword and inflict grievous harm. Can we keep it together? The question has been posed before, with the answer written in the blood of more than 600,000 lives lost to preserve it between 1861 and 1865, and just as many in its defense during World War II. But our current state of deep divisiveness is cause for renewed concern. The real question: Do we have the courage, resolve and faith to save ourselves from ourselves?America, can we keep it together?Maybe a new Utah law will revive the lost art of parents calling their children home for dinner. Utah recently passed the nation's first "free-range parenting" law to protect parents from prosecution for allowing their children to play in nearby parks, walk to school, go to the store or rumble through a neighborhood creek without adult supervision. It's a shame that it now takes passing laws to allow kids to enjoy childhood activities without adult supervision, but we must. We must because, according to Parents Magazine, nearly 75 percent of parents fear their children are at risk of being abducted. Some 30 percent of parents fear child abduction more than they do car accidents, sports injuries or drug addiction involving their children. Parental fears have been stoked for decades by sensationalistic news stories on the internet and cable television, 24/7 fears that, regrettably, are woefully out of sync with reality. According to The New York Times, among America's roughly 40 million elementary school-age children, approximately 115 are abducted by strangers each year while 250,000 are in car wrecks. According to The Washington Post, "children taken by strangers or slight acquaintances represent only onehundredth of 1 percent of all missing children." Such abductions are also on the decline. In any event, media-stoked fears have changed childhood forever, prompting "helicopter parents" to "hover" over their children every moment of every day placing undue burdens and stress on children and parents alike. Lenore Skenazy says the heck with that. Skenazy, an American blogger, columnist, author and reality-show host, wrote a newspaper column in 2008 that explained her decision to allow her then-9-yearold son to ride on the New York City subway alone. The column sparked a flood of outrage among stressed-out parents and won her the label of "America's Worst Mom." It also led to Skenazy penning the book "Free Range Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry." Some 10 years later, Skenazy's advocacy culminated in the passing of Utah's new "free-range parenting" law, which hopefully will enable children to enjoy the sort of unsupervised freedoms we baby-boom kids experienced in abundance and bring back the lost art of parents calling their children home for dinner! In the '70s, after we spent the day outdoors building shacks, going on bike hikes, swimming in a neighbor's pool or enjoying dozens of other activities without adult supervision, our parents called us home for dinner. Every parent's dinner call had a unique sound. My father went with a deep, booming "Tom, dinner! Tom, dinner!" I could hear him a mile away or more.Summertime dinner calls long overdue Tom Purcell

** Washington County News | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 A5 LOCAL & STATEBy Staff ReportCARYVILLE A deputys attempt to stop a vehicle during the course of searching for a man with an outstanding warrant led to the pursuit of a second subject.The incident took place on July 9 after Holmes County Sheriffs Office responded to a request for a civil standby at the Caryville campsite, according to a news release from HCSO.The report stated that while performing the service, the deputy collected information from the parties and went to his vehicle to conduct a warrants check which confirmed one of the subjects, identified as Steven Pope, had an active felony warrant.When the deputy returned, Pope had fled the scene on foot, and additional units, as well as the Holmes and Walton CI K9 teams, responded to assist, is the pursuit.Prior to the arrival of the additional units, a white Nissan Altima was seen leaving the area. When a deputy spotted the vehicle and attempted to conduct an investigative stop to see if the suspect was inside, the driver refused, initiating a pursuit.The suspect, later identified as Matthew Pate, turned south on County Road 179 and continued toward Caryville where he turned onto Pate Pond Road. The pursuit then continued down River Road where the deputy lost sight of the vehicle in the Hinson Cross Roads area, according to HCSO.Washington County Sheriffs Office was notified, and a WCSO deputy located the vehicle on Creek Road, initiating a pursuit that headed north on Pate Pond Road. The vehicle went off the road before coming to a stop, with Pate now fleeing on foot.Pate was later apprehended by WCSO and the Northwest Florida Reception Center K9 team. Meanwhile, Holmes CI began tracking Pope, a trail which lead the team up to Highway 179 and Bear Hewitt Landing, where the track was lost.Pope is wanted on a Bay County felony VOP warrant and now faces additional charges of fleeing and elud-ing in Holmes County. Anyone with knowledge of Popes whereabouts is asked to call HCSO at 850-5473681 or their nearest law enforcement agency.Pate is currently in the custody of the Washington County Jail and also faces fleeing and eluding charges in Holmes County.Sheriff John Tate would like to thank the Holmes CI, Walton CI and NFRC K9 teams and the Washington County Sheriffs Office for assistance in these pursuits and their continued working relationship with HCSO.One in custody and one at-large after pursuitsBy Dara KamNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE --Florida Department of Health officials took two major actions in the med-ical-marijuana sphere Friday, issuing a highly sought-after license to a Miami nursery that successfully challenged the state and laying out the process for four more licenses as the cannabis industry continues to blossom.In a blistering opinion last month, Administrative Law Judge John Van Laningham recommended that health officials grant a medical marijuana license to Natures Way Nursery of Miami, Inc. The June 19 recommended order scalded the state Office of Medical Marijuana Use for using a flawed system to decide which applicants were granted the coveted licenses.While Van Laninghams order was just a recommendation, health officials on Friday issued the license to Natures Way and reduced the number of available slots as hundreds of applicants are expected to compete to join a highly restricted market in one of the countrys most populous states.At the same time, health officials laid out the framework for a new process to handle what they expect to be up to 400 applications for four licenses that recently became available because the number of eligible patients in a statewide database has exceeded 100,000.John Lockwood, a lawyer who represents operators in the marijuana industry, hailed the department's moves Friday."It takes these four licenses that they have to issue by statute and removes them from the litigious issues. These are just four open, competitive licenses. So in my opinion this is a very, very smart move by the department to get these licenses to market as quickly as possible. This is the way it should be done," he said.But its unclear whether Fridays moves by the health department will appease critics --including legislators, patient advocates and marijuana industry opera-tors --who have blasted the agency for delays in issuing new licenses.Floridas medical marijuana industry has been mired in controversy since its inception in 2014, when lawmakers legalized non-euphoric cannabis and authorized five licenses.The already intense competition for the licenses intensified after voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2016 that broadly legal-ized medical marijuana. A law passed last year, aimed at implementing the constitutional amendment, required health officials to issue 10 new licenses, includ-ing to applicants who had legal challenges pending as of January 2017 or who had scored within one point of the highestranked applicants in five regions.Health officials initially said Natures Way was ineligible for a license because its aggre-gate score of 2.8833 was not within one point of the 4.4 received by Costa Farms, which was granted a license for the Southeast region in 2015.But as he had previously done in an unrelated challenge, Van Laningham found that health officials ranking of the applicants --the method used to determine which ones would get licenses --was not the same as scoring the applications.State issues new pot license, gets ready for four more Lets clear the air on law enforcements views of substance abuse.You often see arrests made within our county due to drug use in our communities. As your Sheriff, I understand that we cannot "arrest" our way out of this problem. So, let me be clear when I say that we do not view an arrest as the answer to an epidemic that is sweeping our nation.The sole purpose of a drug arrest is not to punish or humiliate the addict or their families, yet the responsibility to uphold and enforce the laws, which keep our communities safe.The consequences of violating the law are clear and concise and we hope these arrests are informative to the community, as well as a deterrent for others during decision making processes, which could lead them to abusing, possessing, or selling drugs in our area. Controversially, people have voiced that the offense of drug possession is a victimless crime. Let me assure you that the hearts of those protecting and serving our great county cry out when this com-ment is so loosely thrown around. The user is bat-tling the addiction, but others left in the wake of its destruction are also engulfed in the wretched cycle of substance abuse, at no choice of their own.The children. The family. The community. No one is immune to its wrath; It has no boundaries.The poor condition of homes, increased crime rates in drug prone areas, and neglected children in drug-related environments is a short list of what law enforcement sees every single day when responding to those "victimless crimes."As we continue to make these arrests, to ensure the safety of our communities, we can only hope that they will be used as a stepping stone towards the individual finding relief in sobriety and the accep-tance of help through rehabilitation. However, we cannot force them to participate in programs that are encouraged, even if ordered by the courts this often lands them back behind bars.With all of this said, I will never feel sorrow for dealers who prey on the weakness of those addicted to drugs, nor will I ever succumb to the beliefs that we are fighting a losing war on drugs.With just one child saved, we have already won.

** A10 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy The American Heart AssociationJust back from a run with her husband, Laura Metro heard her 6-year-old daughter, Maison, screaming, I think Clay died! I think Clay died!Ž Metros 3-year-old son, who was swimming with family friends, was found at the bottom of the pool with his towel. One friend started CPR … or the closest thing he knew based on what hed seen on TV … on Clays blue, lifeless body. Paramedics arrived and got Clays heart beating again. He was taken by helicopter to the hospital and spent two days in a coma before making what Metro calls nothing short of a miraculous recovery.Ž The doctors said, We dont know why hes alive. The only thing … the only thing … we can attribute it to is the bystander CPR,Ž Metro said. He didnt see the inside of a hospital for an hour and a half after almost drowning. The bystander CPR was really what did it.Ž Drowning is the third-leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide, accounting for 7 percent of all injury-related deaths, according to the World Health Organization. The agency estimates there are 360,000 annual drowning deaths worldwide. The Metros good fortune is anecdotal evidence of the findings from a study published in the June 2017 edition of the journal Resuscitation, which found that chances for neurological recovery from a neardrowning increase when the victim receives CPR from a bystander. We would advocate for parents knowing CPR, and particularly if they have a pool, they should become familiar and get trained in mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing,Ž said Dr. Michael Sayre, a professor of emergency medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle. Whereas hands-only CPR is typically focused on someone who is not in the water and collapses suddenly for other reasons, people underwater die because of lack of oxygen.Ž After Clays recovery, Metro founded a nonprofit called CPR Party, using the model of at-home shopping parties to encourage people to teach and learn CPR. The lessons arent equal to official CPR certification, Metro said, but they will know what to do and hopefully, we create a bridge to certification. We just give them that basic knowledge to empower them.Ž About one in five people who die from drowning are 14 years old or younger, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And for every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal injuries, often including brain damage. The numbers are particularly discouraging, experts say, because in many cases, drowning is preventable. The biggest thing we try to get through to people is you need to maintain constant, active supervision when people are in the water,Ž said Adam Katchmarchi, executive director of the National Drowning Prevention Alliance. Regardless of age and swimming ability, you should never swim alone. You should always swim around someone whos keeping that vigilant watch over the water, whether that be a parent in a backyard pool or whether youre swimming in a lifeguarded area.Ž On its website, the NDPA stresses what it calls layers of protection,Ž including swimmer training, facility safety and parental responsibilities designed to prevent drowning. Drowning can happen quickly and silently, without warning, Katchmarchi said. Were used to the Baywatch drowning, where people see on TV that someones going to be waving their arms and screaming for help,Ž he said. An actual drowning victim, when theyre in that 20to 60-second fight for survival, theyre unable to call for help because all of their energy is being used to keep their head above water. A lot of times theyre bobbing up and down, going under and re-emerging and trying to get air, so its really difficult for them to call out for help,Ž Katchmarchi said. Its really easy to say, Oh, Im watching my kids, but youre scrolling through Facebook or your Twitter feed. ƒ Even if youre distracted for just a short period of time, it can happen really quickly and really silently.Ž EXERCISEDANCING GOOD FOR THE BRAINResearchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago found that older sedentary adults who participated in a Latin ballroom dance program reported improvements in memory, attention and focus. The Mayo Clinic o ers the following tips to get dancing: € Sign up for a dance class at a community college, YMCA, dance studio or community center. € Try dancing at home by following along with a free exercise video from the National Institute on Agings Go4Life YouTube channel. PSYCHOLOGYIMPROVE YOUR MOODThe following tips to improve your mind and mood come from onegreenplanet. org. € Do something you love every day, like writing in a journal or practicing a favorite hobby. € Ditch the negative self-talk. € Eat your B vitamins like B3, B5, B6, B7 and B12. € Eat more plantbased foods to help relieve depression, anxiety and promote mental clarity.

Our move today is a wide squat with a side crunch. You will be working your lower body, quads, glutes, hamstrings, inner thighs and also your core. Begin this combo move by placing your feet out in a wide stance, angling the toes outward. Lower your torso by bending in the knees. Push your hips slightly forward to engage the abdomen and hold your chest tall. Place each hand gently behind the ears or neck and you are ready to move. Keeping the lower body engaged in a squatting position, begin to bend to one side. Keeping the elbows out from the body, guide the chest with the bent elbow. Once you reach your deepest contraction on one side, return to the start. And continue to the opposite side. Keep this side-toside crunch going for at least five to 10 times on each side. Stand from the squat, and give your legs a short break, then return for the next set. Give yourself at least three to five sets of this combo movement. For variation, you can add light hand weights, or stand from the squat if it becomes too much to hold while you are crunching. This move can be done on its own, as it is targeting multiple areas, but also great to add into a lower body/core routine. Whatever you choose, just do it. Youll be glad you did when you are done.

GODSPEAK: Give me BadŽ Brad Keselowski. Shocked? Yes, shocked: He has not won a race this season. KENS CALL: Clint Bowyer is an easy call, and Kyle Larson seems possible whenever he remembers how to win, but Ill go out on a small limb and say Erik Jones.Two more years on the contract for Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus. How impressive is that? GODSPEAK: I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship,Ž said Humphrey Bogart at the end of Casablanca.Ž KENS CALL: In NASCARs long, colorful history, some driver-chief relationships barely lasted through the “ rst green-” ag pit stop, so pushing two decades might be their biggest accomplishment. WINNER: Denny Hamlin REST OF TOP 5: Kyle Larson, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski FIRST ONE OUT: Martin Truex Jr. DARK HORSE: Jimmie Johnson DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Hamlin, who has three wins in Loudon, pushes the panic button and responds with a victory for Coach Joe Gibbs. KYLE BUSCH VS. RICKY STENHOUSE JR.: This isnt from Kentucky, but Daytona, where Stenhouse triggered a big crash. There is so much tension in this relationship, it wont take much for either to snap. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Busch was looking for an apology call from Stenhouse. That never happened. The two had a verbal exchange at Kentucky. Pick and choose your battles wisely,Ž Stenhouse said.Can the Chad Knaus-Jimmie Johnson combination really last through 2020?With Chads new contract announced last week, both the crew chief and driver of the No. 48 are inked for two more years after 2018. Theyve never had to endure anything like this current winless streak, and as far as anyone knows, theres no tension, only frustration. Its quite amazing, really, given the nature of auto-racing relationships. Hes a very tolerant individual,Ž Knaus says of Johnson. That would make him the rarest of racers. Hows Ricky Stenhouse Jr.s tolerance?Its apparently at low tide with Kyle Busch, who verbally dumped on Ricky after the big mess at Daytona two weekends ago. Ricky let Kyle know about it at Kentucky this past weekend, and suggested he should save his more personal critiques for face-to-face meetings. He wont, of course, but its fun to consider the possibilities.„ Ken Willis, ken.willis@news-jrnl.com1. Kyle Busch 799 2. Kevin Harvick 740 3. Martin Truex Jr. 689 4. Joey Logano 648 5.

Unbelievable statWhen you think powerhouse NASCAR team, you dont go much further than Hendrick Motorsports, long considered the New York Yankees of stockcar racing. Well, even the Yankees have down years, and Hendrick is in a slump. If Rick Hendricks team doesnt win at New Hampshire, then Hendrick Motorsports will have cycled through 12 months with no wins. Its last win was July 23, 2017. Yikes!2. More HendrickWith seven more regular-season races before the playoffs, two Hendrick Motorsports drivers are precariously close to the cut line. Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman are 15th and 16th in the playoff rankings. The top 16 drivers go into the playoffs. William Byron is 22nd in points while Jimmie Johnson, a seven-time Cup champion, is hanging on in 14th place. A couple of wins by underdog drivers could spell disaster.3. It aint overThe feud that started in Daytona between Kyle Busch and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is not over. Busch complained that Stenhouse didnt apologize after crashing him at Daytona. The two had a verbal exchange at Kentucky while Busch was strapped into his No. 18 Toyota waiting to qualify. I told him why I didnt reach out,Ž Stenhouse said to NBC. I felt like he ran his mouth enough that I didnt have anything to say to him.Ž„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.com Rick Hendrick, left, with three of his Cup drivers: Alex Bowman, Jimmie Johnson and Chase Elliott at Daytona earlier this year. [NEWS-JOURNAL/DAVID TUCKER] 1. The Big 3Yes, there is a Big 3Ž in NASCAR this season. Martin Truex Jr. made it of“ cial with his fourth win of the year at Kentucky. Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick have “ ve wins each, and the three have combined for 82 playoff points, compared with all other drivers with a total of 44 points.2. Haunted house?Some strange things happened Saturday in Sparta, Kentucky.

** B2 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Major U.S. indexes closed mostly lower Monday as investors bought banks but sold most other types of stocks, including health care and technology compa-nies. Energy stocks sank along with oil prices.Oil prices fell more than 4 percent after U.S. officials suggested the U.S. will take a softer stance on countries that import oil from Iran after sanctions on Irans energy sector go back into effect in November. Banks rose along with interest rates as well as a solid second-quarter report from Bank of America. A strong forecast gave Deutsche Bank its biggest gain in more than a year.Amazon jumped in midday trading as investors expected strong sales during the companys annual Prime Day promotion, one of its largest sales days of the year, but the stock gave up much of that gain following problems with the com-panys website. Most other groups of stocks lost ground, and about two-thirds of the com-panies on the New York Stock Exchange finished lower.Stocks finished at five-month highs Friday as investors remained optimistic about the U.S. economy even as they worried about the trade war between the U.S. and China.Were coming off of a very strong week last week where the market finally started to focus on the expectation of a very strong earnings season,Ž said Sunitha Thomas, a portfolio advisor for Northern Trust Wealth Management. She said companies are likely to report big increases in profit and revenue, and while investors are looking for hints the trade war is affecting company forecasts and supply chains, there were no signs of that on Monday.The S&P 500 index lost 2.88 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,798.43. The Dow Jones Indus-trial Average rose 44.95 points, or 0.2 percent, to 25,064.36 as Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and Boeing climbed. The Nasdaq composite fell 20.26 points, or 0.3 percent, to 7,805.72.The Russell 2000 index of smaller-com-pany stocks declined 8.54 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,678.54.Bank of Americas second-quarter profits jumped, as like other big banks, it got a big boost from the corporate tax cut at the end of 2017 and from higher interest rates. Unlike Wells Fargo and Citigroup, which disclosed their results Friday, Bank of Amer-ica did better than Wall Street expected. Its stock rose 4.3 percent to $29.78.Stocks fall as crude oil prices drop 4 percent; banks climbBy Paul WisemanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration on Monday brought cases against China, the Euro-pean Union, Canada, Mexico and Turkey at the World Trade Organization for retaliating against American tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.The United States has imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum on the grounds that the imported metals pose a threat to U.S. national security. China, the EU, Canada, Mexico and Turkey have counterpunched with taxes on more than $24 billion worth of U.S. exports.U.S. Trade Rep. Robert Lighthizer said their retaliation violates the rules of the Geneva-based WTO, which mediates trade disputes.Instead of working with us to address a common problem, some of our trad-ing partners have elected to respond with retaliatory tariffs designed to punish American workers, farmers and companies,Ž Lighthizer said. If the WTO agrees that the retaliatory duties violate its rules, it would assess the damage and calculate the tariffs that the United States would be entitled to impose in response „ retaliation for the retaliation. But WTO proceedings can drag on for years.In taxing imported steel and aluminum from some countries in March and others in June, President Donald Trump deployed a little-used weapon in American trade policy: Under the Trade Expan-sion Act of 1962, presidents are empowered to impose unlimited tariffs on imports that the Commerce Department asserts are threats to Americas national security.The WTO gives countries broad leeway to determine national secu-rity interests. But there was long an unwritten agreement that WTO member countries would use the national-security justification only very sparingly to avoid abuses.Trumps steel and alu-minum tariffs broke that taboo. Now the Commerce Department is pursuing another, bigger national-security case against auto imports. Hearings on the pro-posed auto tariffs are set for Thursday and Friday in Washington.Separately, Trump is engaged in a trade war with China over the aggressive tactics Beijing has used to challenge U.S. technological dominance. According to the Trump administration, these include outright cybertheft and forcing U.S. companies to hand over trade secrets in exchange for access to the Chinese market.Last week, the administration announced 10 percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, which wont take effect until at least Sep-tember. On Monday, China said that it filed a WTO challenge against those proposed U.S. tariffs.

Something went wrong on our end.Ž People took to social media to complain that they couldnt order items.By about 4:30 p.m., many Prime Day links were working, and Amazon said later Monday that it was work-ing to resolve the glitches.In an email to The Associated Press, it said many are shopping suc-cessfullyŽ and that in the first hour of Prime Day in the U.S., customers ordered more items than in the same time frame last year. Still, the hiccups could mute sales and send shoppers elsewhere during one of Amazons busiest sales periods thats also a key time for it to sign up new Prime members. Shoppers have lots of options, as many other chains have offered sales and promotions to try to capitalize on the Prime Day spending.Analyst Sucharita Mul-puru-Kodali at Forrester Research called the glitch a huge deal.ŽThis is supposed to be one of their biggest days of the year,Ž she wrote in an email. I am shocked this caught them off guard. But I guess the lesson is to not have a big unveil during the middle of the day when every-one comes to your site all at once.ŽAmazon, which recently announced that Prime membership would be getting more expensive, was hoping to lure in shoppers by focusing on new products and having Whole Foods be part of the process. It was also hoping parents would use the deals event to jump start back-to-school shopping.Jason Goldberg, senior vice president of commerce at Publicis. Sapient, noted that the problems could turn off shoppers for a while, particularly those who planned to sign up for Prime membership.If you were planning to find Prime deals to lower the cost of backto-school (purchases), youre almost certainly going back to your tradi-tional venue of choice,Ž he said.Prime Day runs into early snagsMARKET MOVERS€ Bank of America Corp., up $1.23 to $29.78: The banks pro“ t and revenue were greater than analysts anticipated. € Deutsche Bank AG, up 90 cents to $12.14: The troubled German lender said its second-quarter pro“ t will be larger than expected.BRIEFCASEWASHINGTONIMF: World economy likely to grow 3.9 percentThe International Mon-etary Fund is keeping its forecast for global economic growth unchanged at 3.9 percent this year despite worries about rising trade tensions and higher oil prices. But the lending agency is downgrading the outlook for Europe and Japan.The IMF now predicts that the economy of the 19-country eurozone will grow 2.2 percent in 2018, down from the 2.4 percent it forecast in April. The fund expects the Japanese economy to expand 1 percent this year, down-grading its 1.2 percent April forecast. The IMF still expects tax cuts to lift U.S. economic growth to 2.9 percent this year, up from 2.3 percent in 2017.

** B4 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Washington County News FAITHBy Shayne LooperYour teen daughters favorite show is Pretty Little Liars.Ž Week by week she learns the singular lesson that her value depends on being beautiful, rich and sexy. Her younger brother hardly watches TV anymore, and you are relieved: Their fights have decreased significantly. But there is a price to pay: Hes in his room all afternoon and evening playing Monster Hunter: World.Ž Though his sister and he are not fighting they are also not talking, and he only talks to you when you ask him a direct question. It is beginning to dawn on you that your children are immersed in a value system you despise. They are learning that self-fulfillment is the most important „ perhaps the only important „ thing in the world. The idea that the goal of life is to feel good, or at least avoid pain, and that money is the way to that goal, is constantly reinforced. Sex, as demonstrated again and again in the media they consume, is represented as an exciting and pleasurable, but fundamentally meaningless. They are learning that rules are made to be broken, which is the recurring theme of the TV shows your daughter binge-watches with her friends. In those same shows, parents are almost always ridiculous and stupid, and religious people are hypocritical and mean. When God is talked about, which is not often, he is portrayed in such a distorted manner that he is unrecognizable: A straw God. Some parents, when they discover this, try to restrict their childrens media consumption, but by then it is too late. And, while limiting exposure to social and other media is a wise thing to do for children, teens, or adults, it is not the answer. What parents need to do is offer their children an alternative to the culture of self-absorption. Urging children to lose themselves in work or sports is not an alternative. It is the same addictive lifestyle with a different drug of choice. What children need to see is a radically different value system, where life itself is good and people are objects of love. This is certainly not what they see presented in the media. Nowadays the media, including media targeted at teens, glorifies darkness. Darkness is considered more grown up,Ž more important, than light. The class of critics that lives in a symbiotic (or perhaps parasitic) relationship to the media are constantly extolling it. It is up to parents to help their children see the joy and beauty „ and especially the meaningfulness „ of light. Parents must also demonstrate to their children that doubt is not automatically superior to belief. Contemporary culture regards doubters as more intelligent than believers, and this is particularly true in the academy. As Dallas Willard once quipped, You can almost be as stupid as a cabbage as long as you doubt.Ž Intellectuals of an earlier generation would have been astonished by such an idea. Doubt may be a shortcut to academic acceptance today, but it was not, and will not, always be so. Immersed in a culture where dark is light and light is dark, doubt is wise and belief is foolish (or worse, unsophisticated), many young people „ the numbers are alarming „ are leaving the church and the faith. There are various reasons for this but an important one is that they do not see any connection between the faith their parents espouse and the good life, as they have had it portrayed by the culture around them. Unless they are presented with an attractive and workable alternative, the faith cannot help but seem to them irrelevant or even illusory. The people best positioned to present that alternative are their parents, but parents need to see it demonstrated themselves. This is where the church comes in. One of the most important things it can offer, more important even than sermons and Sunday School lessons, is the example of the extraordinary man or woman who lives the compelling life of love through faith-filled interaction with God. They shine with a light that makes the self-absorbed life appear petty and drab. In their presence, the life described in the Bible is no longer an abstraction, but a three-dimensional, attractive, real-life possibility.Give your kids a clear alternativeIf you would like to include an event in this list, email information to: news@chipleypaper.com Klondyke Gospel Music Center to host concerts in July OZARK, ALABAMA … The following gospel music ministries will appear in concert during the month of July as indicated, at the Klondyke Gospel Music Center.
