The state filed a notice that it is taking the case to the 1st District Court of Appeal. The move came a day after Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers ruled that the pro-posed dog-racing ban should not go on the ballot because it would be misleading to voters.As is common, the notice of appeal did not detail the arguments that the state will make at the appeals court. But backers of the proposed constitutional amendment, known as Amendment 13, signaled immediately after Gievers ruling Wednesday that they expected the legal battle to continue.The amendment was one of eight ballot measures placed on the Nov. 6 general-election ballot by the state Constitu-tion Revision Commission, which meets every 20 years and has unique authority to go directly to voters with pro-posed constitutional changes. The measure would ban com-mercial greyhound racing in the state after Dec. 31, 2020.This issue has been out there for a long time,Ž Kate MacFall, Florida state direc-tor of The Humane Society of the United States, told The News Service of Florida on Thursday. We know that its illegal in 40 other states. The CRC (Constitution Revi-sion Commission) process put this on the ballot, and I think its fair and just to give Florida voters a voice.ŽBut Jack Cory, a lobbyist for the Florida Greyhound Association, which represents breeders and trainers and filed the lawsuit, issued a statement saying there should be no trickeration in State seeks to keep dog racing ban on ballotBy Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY It could be said the thing that made it distinctively Chipleys was also the cause for its end.One of the things that were most proud of are the bricks they were made in Chipley,Ž said Washington County Historic Society President Dorothy Odom. Its because it was made from the bricks that were made in Chipley that its going because they crumble.ŽCrews are demolishing the building on State Road 77 in downtown that origi-nally housed Chipley Light and Power and the citys ice plant.

She said the firm Grimsley Caven & Co., out of Marianna has all of the city's information, but "just can't get it done."The initial deadline was June 30 last year. The city also missed the June 30 deadline this year. The firm has all of the city's financial information to conduct the audit.In response, Walker contacted the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee for the state, which also unsuccess-fully attempted to make contact with the firm.However, the state will still withhold funds until the audit is submit-ted. January is the next deadline.When someone suggested the city sue the firm, council members immediately responded that it was imperative to continue to pressure the firm to complete the audit and, possibly, revisit the sue for fees charged the city by the state later on."The city attorney advised not to do that right now," said council chairman Gary Owens said. "We need to get our audit done.""They'll do it, they don't have a choice," Owens added. "But, then again, Tracy could you contact the state several times."Walker said she is not optimistic the firm will meet the next dead-line. The money the city expected from the state had been budgeted for FY 17-18, officials said."That money we cannot get back," Walker said. "It's just gone."Firm fails to submit audit, city ned $22KChipley brick as seen here is the same kind of brick used in the construction of the old ice plant.

That is because betting would still be allowed at Florida tracks on races broadcast from outside the state.You can lie to the CRC to get something put on the ballot, you can even lie to the media, and you can try to lie to the people of the state of Florida,Ž Cory said in an interview Thursday. You cannot lie to the courts, without severe consequences.ŽThe states notice of appeal placed an automatic stay on Gievers decision, pending action by the Tallahassee-based appeals court. It was not immediately known how quickly the appeals court would take up the dispute. But Carey Theil, exec-utive director of Grey2K USA Worldwide, which has long sought to ban greyhound racing in Florida, said his group contributed $25,000 on Thursday morning to the Committee to Protect Dogs, a political com-mittee leading efforts to pass the amendment.The initial decision handed down yesterday is a bad ruling, and we are confident it will be overturned,Ž Theil said. Our campaign is moving forward full speed ahead. We have tremendous support and are confident that Amendment 13 will be approved by voters in November.ŽNews Service senior writer Dara Kam con-tributed to this story.

The historical society operated out of the building from 1986 to 2011.Odom said the organi-zation learned it would cost upwards of $250,000 to restore the building money no one has.However, the city along with the historical society are planning something special to be made in memoriam. Odom requested some wood be retrieved from the building to be used in a historical display. We were thinking of a walking park a gazebo or structure there for people who walk downtown streets maybe to sit and rest,Ž said Chipley Mayor John Sasser. There were all kind of ideas of what we can do with the area.ŽIt was the site of the first well for the water system in Chipley, and, of course the first water tower,Ž he added, reflecting on the buildings history early Tuesday morning.Almost every render-ing, painting and picture of the building is the same a tall all-white structure with dark-col-ored awnings.

Representative Caldwell is running for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture. [JACQUELINE BOSTICK | THE NEWS PHOTOS] Known well for his 2016 Water Bill that laid out policy goals for every region in the state, Caldwell is one of four Republican candidates running for Commissioner of Agriculture. Republicans Senator Denise Grimsley, Mike McCalister and former State Representative Baxter Troutman are also in the race."Agritourism has been a really successful new horizon we've opened up around the state for farmers to be able to find an additional way to create revenue for what is a competitive market," Caldwell said.He talked about farmers embracing the part of the market they are in and facing the challenges or making adjustments."You're going to see the commissioners officer under my leader-ship focus on expanding those opportunities investing in the research side to find new and innovative crops that nobody else is doing that we can really get the margin on," Caldwell said. He also pointed to the manufacturing side of the industry, stating he plans to reform the tax system."We really have a chal-lenge with our property tax system that really makes us unattractive for big manufacturers," Caldwell. "For shipping purposes, we make more sense ... but, that tan-gible tax presents a real obstacle if you're going to build a factory."As the sunrises over the agricultural and agritourism industry and sets toward the Aug. 28 primary, Caldwell looks to the young people who will grow up in their communities. He believes fortifying the industry will retain family operations."I love the state, it's an incredible place to raise your kids and invest in the next generation," he concluded. "Our daugh-ter is 10 years old this year and I certainly want to see she views Florida as a place to stay and raise her family, invest and have a future in." CALDWELLFrom Page A1State Rep.

Bare“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett When good people fight for freedom and peace, the rest of us should fight for them. On July 28, such a man was thrown into a South Sudanese hellhole innocuously called The Blue HouseŽ because of the blue tinting on its windows. People who know Peter Biar Ajak will tell you he is brilliant. His degrees from LaSalle University, the Harvard Kennedy School, and his now-interrupted doctoral program at the University of Cambridge in England reveal his scholarly abilities. His work as chairman of the South Sudan Young Leaders Forum and other groups that promote freedom and democracy reveal his nature. And they have made Ajak the target of South Sudans corruptocracy. Recognizing the power of freedom to release the potential of both individuals and democracies, Ajak knows the first step is for peace. These endeavors make him an enemy of the South Sudanese government and a friend to us. Ajak came to the U.S. as a Lost Boy,Ž one of over 40,000 child refugees from the Sudanese civil war that ravaged the country from 1987 to 2005. Benefitting from the generosity of a Philadelphia family, Ajak graduated from Phillys Central High School, then went onto LaSalle and earned his masters degree at the Harvard Kennedy School. He is a true patriot and humanitarian,Ž declared Delaware state Sen. Anthony Delcollo, Ajaks classmate at LaSalle, who said the two spent a great deal of time discussing philosophy and politics Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., is calling for Ajaks immediate release, stating, The arrest of Peter Ajak at a time when the United States and its Troika partners,, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, and the African Union are encouraging a truly inclusive process undermines the credibility of the governments claim that it wants peace.Ž This bipartisan call to action is not and should not fall prey to the typical Democrat versus Republican gotchaŽ gamesmanship you see played out on cable and broadcast TV news. When men and women legally come to our country and work hard to better themselves, their home countries and the relationships between our countries, the debate should be how this will be achieved, not whether they should be jailed for fear that others might follow. Tyrants like South Sudan president Salva Kiir Mayardit show fear, not strength, when they imprison good people, like Ajak, who promote peace and freedom. As Americans, we celebrate these expressions every day without fear of government retribution. No one goes to jail. Ajak envisions a South Sudan where leaders are chosen by honest elections, not bullets. He envisions a world where disagreements lead to understanding and solutions, not torture and arbitrary incarceration. These beliefs always cause great fear among dictators. This is why Kiirs government passed the National Security Act in 2014, allowing the arrest „ without cause „ of anyone suspected of committing crimesŽ against the state. Ajak is now imprisoned in the notorious Blue House where people whose only crime was to express their opinion have died of starvation. Imagine if the women on The ViewŽ were to broadcast from Sudan or South Sudan. They would never be heard from again. South Sudans President,Ž Kiir, needs a new fear: the fear of total worldwide rejection for his cowardly and autocratic conduct. You can help to achieve this and, hopefully, secure the release of Ajak along with many others. Call, write and email your representatives in the U.S. Senate and House and tell them to call upon South Sudan to release Peter Biar Ajak immediately. Should you be successful, I believe we will all watch Ajak achieve peace and prosperity in a country that should be our partner, not our dependent.A Philly mans detention in Africa should not be ignoredI have browsed umpteen garage and yard sales over the years and used to help my mother display her collectibles in her neighborhoods miles-long event. But I did not realize that Saturday, August 11 is this years National Garage Sale Day until I read it via U.S. News & World Report.Ž Given the current political climate, National Garage Sale Day could be unprecedentedly controversial this year. Just Google garage sale.Ž In addition to tips for shoppers and sellers, youll find numerous dueling examples of both I love garage salesŽ and I hate garage sales.Ž The only thing that could make things more incendiary this year is lawn signs such as With each purchase, an adorable free kitten, named after a distinguished Confederate general.Ž Still, controversial or not, when we participate in garage sales we are subconsciously paying tribute to our intrepid hunter-gatherer ancestors. As a further homage to their legacy, if you purchase that used electric blender without testing it first, you may also discover FIRE. People who have never hosted a garage sale dont realize the stress involved. For instance, you have to put a few dents into those stationary bikes and yoga mats, so no one realizes what a slob you are. (That rowing machine looks like it has been idle since it was used to dump tea into Boston Harbor.Ž) Savvy shoppers can tell a mediocre garage sale from an outstanding one. Run-of-themill garage sale organizers are tickled to see shoppers get into a tug-of-war over a prized item. Organizers who strive for excellence will offer even more entertainment value, perhaps a log-rolling contest or giant slalom to settle such conflicts. People who host garage sales on an annual basis should be more circumspect about storing away their unsold items. Based on circumstantial evidence, someone keeps storing the old VHS tapes near a family Bible that is turned to Be ye fruitful and multiply.Ž (The social justice motto of VHS tapes seems to be Were here, we reek of beer and were not going away.Ž) Have fun August 11, but be careful about impulse buys. Early in my married life, I went to a garage sale and purchased a big stack of antique hymn magazines. I couldnt stop wondering what sort of idiot would get rid of such a treasure so cheaply. Now the unread magazines have been taking up space in my shed for 20 years. Understandably, Ive sworn off impulse buys. Oooo, Stonewall Jackson the tabby put quite a gash in your leg. Youd better get some bandages...Ž Lets not rush into anything about these newfangled bandages. Hey, why are electric blenders dancing around my head?ŽWill you survive National Garage Sale Day? R i c k J e n s e n Rick Jensen D a n n y T y r e e Danny Tyree Few situations are ever improved once politics play a part, and were seeing this unfold over in Clearwater „ with possible adverse implications for gunrights proponents throughout Florida. Outside a Clearwater convenience store on July 19, 47-year-old Michael Drejka, who witnesses said had displayed a history of behaving like a self-delegated czar of parking lot etiquette at the store, angrily confronted a woman who had parked in a handicapped parking space „ although she apparently had no handicapped tag or sticker, and despite plenty of other regular spaces being available. The womans boyfriend, Markeis McGlockton, 28, witnessed this encounter, and in defense of his girlfriend and their 5-year-old son who was in the car, he shoved Drejka to the ground. Drejka then pulled a gun and shot the unarmed McGlockton, even though he seemingly backed away from Drejka once he saw the weapon. McGlockton, a father of three, died shortly afterward. The outcome was a tragedy. But Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri compounded the sad incident by announcing the following day that Drejka would not be arrested because his actions appeared justified under the states 2005 Stand Your Ground law. Gualtieri cited the laws largely subjective standard,Ž and further alleged that Drejka might sue if arrested, based on changes lawmakers made to the statute in 2017. It cuts towards this guys belief, in his mind, that hes going to be harmed again, and he had to shoot to defend himself. And those are the facts. And thats the law,Ž Gualtieri told reporters. Yet conservative state lawmakers, defense lawyers and NRA spokeswoman Marion Hammer all have told the media that none of that is true. But because Gualtieri chose to substitute his immediate judgment for that of prosecutors, all sorts of trouble is taking root. Because Drejka is white and McGlockton is black, critics immediately spied another racially charged case akin to that involving George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin „ a comparison made worse because many of the laws critics have failed to explain that Zimmerman never invoked Stand Your Ground as his defense. He instead claimed self-defense, which led to his 2013 acquittal on murder charges. Thus, Stand Your Ground critics now are calling for the law to be changed or repealed. They do so while stoking racial animus and promoting claims that the law is racist. In fact, after Martins slaying in 2012, the Tampa Bay Times analyzed nearly 200 Stand Your Ground cases and concluded that there was no obvious bias in how black defendants have been treated.Ž The Times reported at the time that black defendants declaring Stand Your Ground in deadly shootings went free 66 percent of the time, compared to 61 percent for white defendants. The bottom line of all of this is that Gualtieri has opened the door for legal mayhem that, if carried to fruition, could end up depriving law-abiding citizens of the right to defend themselves. A version of this editorial originally appeared in the Lakeland Ledger, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Jumping the gun on Stand Your Ground

** A8 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | Washington County Newsseeks to prevent arbitrary restriction on the number of MMTCs authorized to conduct business in the state. The amendment mandates the availability and safe use of medical marijuana by qualify-ing patients,Ž Dodson wrote.Dodson also ruled that the 2017 law is unconstitutional because it requires marijuana operators licensed by the state to cultivate, process, and dispense medical marijuana „ something known as vertical integrationŽ „ as opposed to breaking the activities into separate parts for licensure.And the judge decided that the law „ aimed at implementing the 2016 constitutional amendment, which broadly legalized medical marijuana „ improp-erly restricted who could get licenses. The law ordered health officials to grant licenses to operators who were already up and running in Florida or who were involved in litigation as of Jan. 1, 2017. The law also required licenses for a black farmer who meets certain conditions and set aside a preference for an applicant with certain ties to the citrus industry.That provision amounted to what is known as a specialŽ law, Dodson ruled in the order issued Thursday. The judge found the 2017 law restricts the rights granted under the Constitution and that plaintiff Florigrown LLC has a substantial likelihood of successŽ in its claim that the law conflicts with the amendment. But, despite multiple find-ings that the 2017 law is unconstitutional, Dodson refused to grant an injunc-tion requested by Florigrown, a company partly owned by Tampa strip club operator Joe Redner, who also recently won a separate marijuana-related legal challenge. Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers ruled that Redner should be able to grow his own marijuana for juicingŽ purposes to prevent a recurrence of lung cancer. The state is appealing her decision.Dodsons decision not to issue an injunction means Florida health officials can continue to move forward with an embattled process to grant a handful of licenses in addition to the 14 already bestowed in the states highly competitive marijuana indus-try, which some estimates project will generate $2.5 bil-lion in revenue in less than a decade.The denial of the request for temporary injunction will allow the department to con-tinue to work to implement the law so Floridians can have safe access to this medicine,Ž Florida Department of Health spokesman Brad Dalton said in an email.But the judges ruling could pave the way for an unlimited number of marijuana purveyors in a state where one license recently was sold as part of a $93 million deal that included an unnamed health care organizationŽ and another was acquired in a $53 million takeover by California-based Med Men.Its the first time any judge has weighed in on the licensing process at all, and what he said was unequivo-cal. ƒ What hes saying, and I think this is super clear, is what youre doing is uncon-stitutional,Ž Florigrown CEO Adam Eland told The News Service of Florida in a tele-phone interview Monday.But Eland acknowledged that the judges ruling might have no immediate impact on Florigrown.

Whos next? Tune in online at www.news-journalonline. com/daytonamotormouths The seal is broken. How many more wins for Chase this year? GODSPEAK: Chase will grab at least one more at a short track or maybe Charlottes ROVAL. KENS CALL: Ill say two more, and maybe the second will be at Homestead in November. But probably not.Whos next to get his “ rst career win? GODSPEAK: Sign me up for Daniel Suarez. He is “ nding his pace and grabbing hold of this NASCAR Cup Series stuff. KENS CALL: Ill go out on a limb and say itll be a rainshortened win. Lets say Alex Bowman. But if the rain falls at precisely the right time, maybe Matt DiBenedetto. ARIC ALMIROLA VS. RYAN BLANEY: On Lap 4, (of 90) Blaney made an aggressive pass on Almirola, knocking his No. 10 Ford off the course. Neither driver was a factor in the race. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: This was a family battle, since both drive cars for Ford. I guess he hit the curb and wiped us out, so its disappointing,Ž said Almirola, who limped home 22nd. WINNER: Kevin Harvick REST OF TOP 5: Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch, Brad Keselowski FIRST ONE OUT: Joey Logano DARK HORSE: Kyle Larson DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Order is restored and the Big 3Ž gets back to business at Michigan. CUP STANDINGS WHATS ON TAP QUESTIONS & ATTITUDECompelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answersChase at the Glen? Who saw that coming?Those who follow the Elliott familys racing history, perhaps. As has been mentioned (and mentioned, and mentioned ƒ) the Elliotts of Dawsonville are practically synonymous with oval-track horsepower, but Chases daddy (Bill, of course) got the “ rst win of his Hall of Fame career at the Riverside (California) road course in 1983. Though hed raced a part-time Cup schedule from 1977-82, that Riverside win came at the end of Bills “ rst full-time Cup season. He waited until Week 15 of 1984 for Win No. 2, then cemented his legend with the amazing 85 campaign.Will Chase wait long?The consensus wants to suggest more wins will come, and soon. You never know, of course, but supporting that thinking is Chases quality runs just prior to Sundays win at the Glen. Hed led laps in three of the previous four races and was top-seven in the two races prior to Watkins Glen. Its too early to think he might turns 2018s Big 3Ž into a Big 4,Ž but stranger things have happened.„ Ken Willis, ken.willis@news-jrnl.com1. Kyle Busch 934 2. Kevin Harvick 864 3.

Chase Elliott won his “ rst Cup Series race on his 99th attempt, snapping a 37-race losing streak for Hendrick Motorsports, which celebrated its 250th Cup win as a race team. It was Chevys second win of the 2018 season and got Elliott into the playoffs.2. Chase thatElliott followed almost exactly in his fathers footsteps. Bill Elliott had eight second-place “ nishes before notching his “ rst Cup Series victory on a road course (Riverside) 35 years ago. Chase did the exact same thing, only a bit quicker.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, August 8, 2018 A11Central Florida quarterback McKenzie Milton scrambles during the second half of the American Athletic Conference championship game against Memphis on Dec. 2, 2017, in Orlando, Fla. New coach and former Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel inherits a group that includes star quarterback McKenzie Milton, who is making sure the Knights enter this season with the right attitude. [JOHN RAOUX/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Steve MegargeeThe Associated PressCentral Florida is trying to follow up on its undefeated season with a new coach, a new defensive cornerstone and the same old high expectations.The Knights head the list of Group of Five teams with reason for optimism this season.UCF lost its coach when the lure of his alma mater prompted Scott Frost to return to Nebraska though he stuck around long enough to coach the Knights in a Peach Bowl victory over Auburn The Knights also must replace American Athletic Conference defensive player of the year Shaquem Griffin, who was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round.They still have plenty of fire-power. New coach and former Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel inherits a group that includes star quarterback McKenzie Milton, who is making sure the Knights enter this season with the right attitude.Say you come off a winning year, teams might tend to get lackadaisical in the way they approach things,Ž Milton said. They might get complacent. That cant be us. We caught some teams off guard in the way we played, the way we won last year. Were not going to catch anybody off guard now. Were going to get everybodys best shot.ŽThe Group of Five refers to conferences that arent part of the Power Five (the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and Southeastern Conference). It includes Conference USA, the MAC, the Mountain West and the Sun Belt, as well as the American Athletic Conference.Heres a breakdown of top teams in each Group of Five conference heading into the season: Arkansas StateConference: Sun Belt Notes: The Red Wolves have earned at least a share of the Sun Belt title “ ve of the last seven years and are the preseason pick to win it again. Arkansas State had six “ rstteam preseason all-Sun Belt selections and quarterback Justice Hansen was named preseason offensive player of the year. Arkansas State went 7-5 last season and lost the Camellia Bowl in its seventh straight bowl appearance. Other Sun Belt teams to watch include defending co-champions Appalachian State and Troy.Boise StateConference: Mountain West Notes: MWC preseason offensive player of the year Brett Rypien has thrown for 9,876 yards, the highest total of any active Football Bowl Subdivision player. The Broncos also return Alexander Mattison, who ran for 1,086 yards and 12 touchdowns last season as Boise State went 11-3 with an MWC title and a Las Vegas Bowl victory over Oregon Boise State beat Fresno State in last seasons MWC championship game, and those two teams “ gure to face off for the title again this year.UCFConference: American Athletic Notes: UCF owns a 13-game winning streak after ending last season as the lone unbeaten FBS team. UCF returns much of its offense from last season and is led by quarterback Milton, who “ nished eighth in the Heisman Trophy balloting last year. UCF “ gures to battle in-state rival South Florida for the East Division crown. The Knights nonconference schedule includes a trip to North Carolina and home dates with Florida Atlantic and Pittsburgh.Florida AtlanticConference: Conference USA Notes: Lane Kif“ n orchestrated a remarkable turnaround at Florida Atlantic last season. FAU went from 3-9 in 2016 to 11-3 in 2017 and closed the year on a 10-game winning streak that included a Conference USA title and Boca Raton Bowl victory Florida Atlantic has Conference USAs preseason offensive player of the year (running back Devin Singletary) and defensive player of the year (linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair). The schedule includes trips to Oklahoma and UCF.MemphisConference: American Athletic Notes: Weve included two teams from the American, which has emerged as the strongest of the Group of Five leagues. Memphis loses star quarterback Riley Ferguson and receiver Anthony Miller from a team that went 10-3 last season but Darrell Henderson is back after rushing for 1,154 yards and nine touchdowns a year ago. The Tigers “ gure to battle Houston and Navy for the West Division title. Memphis has only one game against a Power Five opponent, an Oct. 20 trip to Missouri.OhioConference: Mid-American Notes: Although Ohio has reached a bowl game eight of the last nine seasons, the Bobcats havent won a MAC title since 1968 This could be the year. Ohio went 9-4 and won the Bahamas Bowl last year with an offense that averaged 37.4 points. Quarterback Nathan Rourke rushed for 21 touchdowns last season, while running back A.J. Ouellette ran for over 1,000 yards. Ohio and Northern Illinois look like the MACs top teams.Knights at full tilt SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFCHAPEL HILL, N.C.UNC: 13 suspended for selling school-issued shoesLess than a year after emerging from a long run of NCAA issues, North Carolina is dealing with rule violations again „ this time for football players selling team-issued shoes.The school announced Monday that 13 players will miss games serving suspensions for the sec-ondary NCAA violations, which will leave the Tar Heels shorthanded during much of the seasons opening month. While secondary violations are generally considered less severe, the penalties in this case will result in sev-eral players being forced to sit out at least a third of the regular-season schedule. DETROITOakland acquires pitcher Mike Fiers from TigersThe Oakland Athletics have acquired right-hander Mike Fiers from the Detroit Tigers for two players to be named or cash.The Tigers announced the move Monday.The 33-year-old Fiers is 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA this season. The rebuild-ing Tigers picked him up before the season on a $6 million, one-year con-tract, and he pitched well enough that he became a candidate to be traded to a contender. Detroit wasnt able to work out a deal before the non-waiver trade deadline last week, but the Tigers have now sent him to an Oakland team that, if the season ended now, would be the Ameri-can Leagues second wild card. LOS ANGELESShaqs son to play basketball at UCLAUCLA has landed for-ward Shareef ONeal. The son of retired NBA great Shaquille ONeal signed a grant-in-aid to attend UCLA this fall. He will enroll in summer school this month.The 6-foot-10, 220-pounder from Los Angeles played the last two seasons at Crossroads High in nearby Santa Monica. As a senior last season, ONeal helped the school win the CIF Division II state title for the first time since 1997. He had 29 points, 17 rebounds and five blocks in the title game. ONeal averaged 27 points as a senior while Crossroads finished with a 25-9 record. The Associated Press By Schuyler DixonThe Associated PressOXNARD, Calif. „ Dak Prescott threw two inter-ceptions just a few plays apart in a training camp practice, including an illadvised pass across the field to a receiver just a few yards from the line of scrimmage.Those picks, and the decisions that go with them, are under more scrutiny after the Dallas Cowboys quarterback followed his remarkable rookie season with a some-what pedestrian encore. And Prescott is among those doing the scrutiniz-ing „ each night at camp in the film room.When I go back, Im being super-critical of myself, of the throws, of the placement, of where I should have went with the ball,Ž Prescott said Sunday. Im tough on myself. So when I go back tonight, all of that was OK, its got to better and this is why its got to better. And I take my notes and I move forward.ŽWith the release of three-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant and the retirement of 15-year tight end Jason Witten Prescott is working with a revamped group of receiv-ers and unproven batch of tight ends. The resulting rough patches for the passing game after a week and a half in California arent surprising, but notable nonetheless considering how the offense usually appears to be ahead of the defense with the Cowboys this time of year.The best teams Ive been on are where its back and forth all day and everybody is just compet-ing and battling and no one really dominates the whole day,Ž coach Jason Garrett said. The other side competes back and challenges back and fights back. Thats what weve had really throughout training camp.ŽTheres a reality facing Prescott, though. Two years ago, he set an NFL rookie record for passer rating and was voted the leagues offensive rookie of the year for a team that finished with an NFC-best 13 wins. In 2017, the inter-ceptions more than tripled (from four to 13), the passer rating dropped by almost 20 points and the Cowboys missed the playoffs at 9-7.Some will point to running back Ezekiel Elliotts six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations, which started halfway through the season just as Prescott and the Cowboys were looking good enough for another playoff trip.Others will remind of injuries that sidelined left tackle Tyron Smith for three games, a big reason the offensive line didnt live up to its reputation as one of the best in the league.Regardless, the onus will be on Prescott to keep defenses honest with the Cowboys making no secret of building their offense around Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing that season.Cowboys, Prescott working on pass game UCF seeks to deliver encore performance with new coachArkansas State quarterback Justice Hansen throws against Middle Tennessee during the “ rst half of the Camellia Bowl on Dec. 9, 2017, in Montgomery, Ala.

** B2 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks finished broadly higher for the third day in a row Monday. Media, retail and tech-nology companies rose, and Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway led gains for the finan-cial sector.Most sectors climbed as companies including Facebook and Netflix recovered some of the losses they sustained recently. Investors continued to focus on companies quarterly results instead of the escalating trade threats the U.S. and China made last week.Company profits have rocketed higher this year thanks to the corporate tax cut and continued economic growth. But in the first quarter investors didnt always react to that growth because they were worried about the U.S.s numerous trade disputes. Julian Eman-uel, chief equity and derivative strategist for BTIG, said thats starting to change. The skepticism that we had a quarter ago seems, rightly, to be falling by the wayside,Ž he said.The S&P 500 index rose 10.05 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,850.40, its highest close since Jan. 29. The benchmark index has risen for five weeks in a row, its lon-gest winning streak in 2018.The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 39.60 points, or 0.2 percent, to 25,502.18. The Nasdaq composite added 47.66 points, or 0.6 percent, to 7,859.68. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks picked up 10.94 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,684.31. Facebook helped pull technology companies upward as it gained 4.4 percent to $185.69. The Wall Street Journal reported that Face-book has talked to four major U.S. banks about possibly offering new services through Face-book Messenger.Results for Berkshire Hathaway were stronger than analysts expected and the com-panys Class B shares climbed 2.9 percent to $206.06.Construction and technical services company Jacobs Engineering jumped 7.8 percent to $72.31 after it gave a strong forecast for its next fiscal year.Tyson Foods gained 3.3 percent to $59.64. The poultry and pork processor cut its profit forecast last week in part because of uncertainty surrounding trade policy and rising freight costs.

She oversaw PepsiCo during a turbulent time in the industry that has forced food giants including Coca-Cola Co., Campbell Soup Co. and Oreo maker Mondelez International Inc. to adapt to changing tastes. All those companies changed CEOs in roughly the last year.At PepsiCo Inc., Nooyi stressed the companys move toward good for youŽ options that people dont feel as guilty eating, such as Baked Lays potato chips and Naked juices made of fruits and vegetables. The company has not abandoned sugary sodas or more indulgent snacks.Nooyi, 62, has been with PepsiCo Inc. for 24 years and held the top job for 12.Another PepsiCo veteran, Ramon Laguarta, will take over as chief executive in October, the company said Monday. Nooyi will remain as chairwoman until early next year.Growing up in India, I never imagined Id have the opportunity to lead such an extraordinary company,Ž Nooyi said in a statement Monday.Nooyi began her career in India with positions at companies including Johnson & Johnson. She later attended the Yale School of Management.The percentage of female CEOs in the Fortune 500 has climbed slowly over the years and broke the 5 percent mark just last year, according to Catalyst, which promotes women in the workplace. The Fortune 500 includes the largest companies based on revenue.In the S&P 500, an index that includes companies from different sectors, there are currently 25 female CEOs including Nooyi, according to Catalyst. That also represents around 5 percent of CEOs.Within the food indus-try, Nooyi is the latest female chief executive to step down, following Mondelez CEO Irene Rosenfeld last year and Campbell CEO Denise Morrison earlier this year. Nooyi hands the reins to the 54-year-old Laguarta, who has held a variety of positions in his 22 years at PepsiCo over more than two decades. He currently serves as presi-dent, overseeing global operations, corporate strategy, public policy and government affairs. He previously served as CEO of the Europe Sub-Saharan Africa region.Laguarta will be the sixth CEO in PepsiCos history, with all of them coming from within the company.Shares of PepsiCo, based in Purchase, N.Y., rose more than 1 percent to close Monday at $117.38.PepsiCos Indra Nooyi latest female CEO to exitFEMALE CEOS AT S&P 500 COMPANIESPepsi CEO Indra Nooyi is stepping down this year Of the 339 CEOs that have held the top job at an S&P 500 company for at least two years, only 17 were women, about 5 percent.

Students entering college should check with the health services at their college regarding immunization requirements. The department makes it easy to keep track of your childs immunization record through Florida SHOTS, a free, statewide, centralized online immunization registry that helps health care providers, parents, and schools keep track of immunization records to ensure that patients of all ages receive the vaccinations needed to protect them from dangerous vaccine-preventable diseases. Florida SHOTS makes it easier to keep up with your childs immunization history„even when moving or switching doctors. The registry is endorsed by the Florida Academy of Family Physicians, Florida Association of Health Plans, Inc., Florida Medical Association, Florida Osteopathic Medical Association, and the Florida Chapter of American Academy of Pediatrics. If your child is due for a vaccine, please visit your family health care provider or one of our health department clinics. Visit ImmunizeFlorida.org to learn more about immunizations your child may need or call your local county health department to find out locations and times for immunization services available near you.

CribbageTRIVIA GUY W i l s o n C a s e y Wilson Casey By Melissa EricksonMore Content NowTalking to a child about why its important to get good grades in school can be met with nods of agreement or rolled eyes. It doesnt matter if kids know you want them to succeed, they have to have the motivation to do it for themselves. Motivation is one of the biggest challenges in education. Many factors combine to encourage us to work hard, pursue goals or aim for success, or to do the opposite,Ž said Joan M. Rooney, vice president for instructor management at The Princeton Review and Tutor.com. External factors like income level, subjects being taught, the ability of the teacher and other social influences play a role but dont make a big difference. The one factor that is most influential in helping us to succeed is confidence,Ž said Rooney, a former classroom teacher and parent of an adult son. Shes not referring to an unrealistic sense of selfworth but rather a belief that if students work hard and do their best, they are capable of succeeding. A student needs to have the knowledge that he will not succeed at everything, but if he doesnt try, how will he know what he is capable of, she said. Fail until you succeed We need to help our kids understand that failure is a stepping stone on a journey and not an end result. Everybody fails, and not just once. What is great about failure (although it does not seem so at the time) is that we learn from it and we try again,Ž Rooney said. Sharing past stories of failures in and out of school and failure stories of famous people helps children understand that failure can be a helpful part of life, Rooney said. Avoid bad attitudes What is not helpful for kids is if a parent says, I was never good at math, eitherŽ or I am terrible at foreign languages.Ž These types of statements create a fixed mindset, which sets us up for failure rather than success,Ž Rooney said. Make it relevant Stay abreast of what your child is studying in class and find ways to incorporate what you can into everyday activities. € In the car: How many miles to school? What is that in terms of kilometers? Are we getting good gas mileage? € The grocery store provides lots of opportunities to discuss science, nutrition and math. Which of these soups has less salt, and why doesnt it say saltŽ? How much will this cost if it is 15 percent off? € Vocabulary words can be a challenge for the whole family to use during dinner. € Events in the news are sources of discussion on topics like voting rights or crime and punishment.
