Of 40 code enforcement violations in July, 25 cases were for signage. Officials are seeking individuals to serve on a committee that will help guide policy for an updated ordinance."Temporary signs can be used on a short-term basis; now short-term to you may mean something entirely dif-ferent than it does to me," said Mayor John Sasser.The ordinance states tem-porary signage is prohibited unless it is posted under the following circumstances: to indicate an owner/agent is actively attempting to sell, rent or lease property on which the sign is located; to indicate the grand opening of a business or activity; to iden-tify construction in progress; to indicate the existence of a new business or business in a new location; or to advertise a special event.City enforces signage code, seeks committee membersBy Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY At just 12 years old and in her second year competing one track runner has sprinted her way to become an All-American finalist at the National Junior Olympics.Kinsleigh Hunter, of Chi-pley, became a finalist runner in the 100-meter dash (6th place; 12.42) and 200-meter dash (7th place; 25.42) at the 2018 Amateur Athletic Union Jr. Olympics Games held July 28-Aug. 4 at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa."She is an exceptional athlete," said Track Coach Brett Stanley, head coach and founder of Tallahassees Spartan Chosen Track Club. "I noticed it from the first day of practice."The Roulhac Middle School student took no walks this summer, training six days a week daily under Stanley. She changed her diet and learned what it m eant to have be on a track team.Last year, she competed unattached, but still made it to the semi-finals.My goal was to place and medal last year, but I didnt," Hunter said. "So, I tried my hardest this year and I did.""Im thankful for all of my family celebrating me to this because it took me a long ways to get from Chipley, Florida to Iowa," she added. "And Im happy to do this and make everybody proud."With those titles under her belt, she is already preparing for next years competition, Stanley said."She made a vision board last night and now she is willing to do anything to get herself to the point where she is considered the best in her age," he said.

[SPECIAL TO THE NEWS] By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comWASHINGTON COUNTY … It has been nearly six months since Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, killing 14 students and three staff members.The Valentines Day shooting rampage left campuses across the state and nation smol-dering with fear and quandary about how safe schools are. With a two-day training, Washington County School District faculty and staff are more prepared then ever to have a safe school year.During a two-day training, held Aug. 6 and 8, Washington County Sheriffs Office, Chipley Police Department, Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-tion Commission, and Florida Department of Corrections Probation and Parole Division, trained WCSD employees on how to respond during an active shooter situation.According to a WCSO news release, law enforcement approach hinged on real-life simulations, including gunshots and screams. And during the final scenario, school staff had to determine the safest escape routes."As disheartening as the need for the train-ing is, it is a priority," Crews stated in the release. "We have to overcome things we dont want to do in this business and planning for an attack on our children in our schools is one we should not have to face. Being involved in a training where we learn the response tactics together so that we can face an attacker head on is critical. And that is what this training was about."In response to the Parkland shooting, Gov. Rick Scott and state legislators rolled out a $400 million package designated for school safety. The package included a mental health piece a topic that continues to take shape as recently released confession tapes by shooter Nikolas Cruz reportedly show signs of mental illness.Schools train for shooter scenarioLaw enforcement from different agencies and school district staff are pictured following a recently held active shooter training.

** A2 Saturday, August 11, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Nathalie Sczublewski News Service FloridaSUNRISE Family members whose loved ones were killed during a massacre at a Parkland high school in February slammed the Broward County School board for failing to make schools safe, just one week before classes begin.The group, which held a press conference at an arena where the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission was meeting Thursday, also called for the school board to be voted out of office, blasting them for a lack of leadership.We have focused on issues, but the school board has not provided answers,Ž said Tony Montalto, whose daughter Gina, was among the 14 students killed in the Valentines Day mass shooting. Three faculty members also died after Nikolas Cruz, who confessed to the killings, allegedly opened fire at his former school. Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of murder.So today we would like to make the citizens of Broward County aware that the current school board has failed to properly prepare the countys 234 schools for the upcoming school year,Ž said Montalto, president of Stand with Parkland,Ž a nonprofit organization launched by parents of Parkland victims in response to the mass shooting.Montalto urged every-one concerned with the safety of this countys schoolsŽ to take action at the polls.Vote for new school board representation that would be more concerned about the safety of students and teachers in all of Bro-ward County,Ž he said.Two parents of 14-year-old girls who were killed in the Valentines Day massacre are running for school board.Lori Alhadeff, whose daughter Alyssa was among the 17 victims, and Ryan Petty, whose daughter Alaina also died, are running in order to continue their fight for improved school safety, increased transparency and increased accountability in Broward Schools in order to ensure a quality educa-tion,Ž they said in a press release announcing their candidacy in May.During a Broward County School Board meeting earlier Thursday morning, board member Donna Korn called the 2017-18 academic year one of the bestŽ for the county.But Korns comments elicited outrage from April Schentrup, whose 16-year-old daughter, Carmen, was among the slain Parkland students.Being an employee of the school district, and a mother who has endured such tragedy, it was diffi-cult to hear those words,Ž Schentrup said. Because I know we are not the only ones in Broward County who struggled. We know that it wasnt an amazing year. We know that it wasnt the best year for Broward schools.ŽSchentrup said the county needs school board members who are compassionate, who understand and who lead.ŽOther parents vented frustrations with the school boards lack of leadershipŽ and failure to reach consensus about school security issues.Max Schachter, whose 14-year-old son Alex also died, created a task force to screen companies that want to donate and sell safety-related products to the school system.Schachter, who serves on the public safety com-mission created by the state Legislature earlier this year, said that over $2 million worth of prod-ucts were donated, but the school district turned him away.There is no account-ability,Ž he said. Theres no leadership and we dont want this (school shooting) to happen to other schools. We dont want this to happen to any other children.ŽAndrew Pollack, whose 18-year-old daughter Meadow was also a victim, accused school district Superintendent Robert Runcie of reversing himself on major decisions related to the investiga-tion of the Feb. 14 event as well as other school-safety issues.Slain students families hammer School Board[NEWS SERVICE FLORIDA] According to City Administrator Dan Miner, the conversation surrounding signage came up when a fast-food res-taurant requested to place temporary signs that were outside of city code. When the City refused the request, the restaurant pointed to several other businesses that were also out of compliance. The issue is that business would like to advertise their products using temporary signage, which is against city code.The code, according to officials, is aimed toward safety and to maintain an aesthetically please city.Another part of the discussion at the workshopcentered on the open-endedness of parts of the ordinance, and con-fronted the definition of how long is "temporary" or short-term sign and when is a sign a consid-ered a work of art.On art, Sasser expressly defended the mural painted on the side of Piggly Wiggly Grocery store. And, according to the drafted ordinance, it would be exempted from violation. However, other advertisements that aren't as popular, but could be considered an art form by some, were Chief Scott Thompson's concern."What if a business at one of the main entrances of Chipley puts up a sign and say it's a work of art and it's very large, gro-tesque and distracting to me or to you," Thomp-son said. "Under this, it's exempt."After a thorough discussion, including input from residents and business owners in the audience, the council decided Thursday to advertise for individuals interested in serving on a committee that will help update the ordinance to meet the needs of business owners and the general public. Miner said the advertisement will go out before the end of the month.For questions or concerns, contact code enforcement at 850-638-6303. SIGNAGEFrom Page A1Temporary advertisement signage is prohibited within the city's code, except for the following purposes: € To indicate an owner/agent is actively attempting to sell, rent or lease property on which the sign is located € To indicate the grand opening of a business or activity € To identify construction in progress € To indicate the existence of a new business or business in a new location € Advertising a special event € Any temporary sign not complying with the requirements of this section or placed within the right of way is illegal and subject to immediate removal by the city.Is your sign illegal? Temporary advertisement signage rules for City of ChipleyIn the $430,000 Washington County School District received, $172,599 was designated to the mental health component. The School Board used the money to hire a School Safety Administrator and two licensed professional counselors.The School Board hired Kimberly Register to take on the new state-mandated position of School Safety Administrator. The position offers up a broad job description mainly stating the specialist should oversee all facets of safety district-wide and coordinate with county and state departments to make schools safer.Also, the school district, in partnership with the county and sheriff's office, has placed armed School Resource Officers at all school campuses, with the exception of WISE and Florida Panhandle Techni-cal College. The SROs are trained in mental health crisis response, according to WCSO.At a roundtable discus-sion between the School Board and WCSD faculty and administration held earlier this year, Superintendent Joseph Taylor, School Board member Milton Brown and Sheriff Crews reminded every-one that familiarizing and equipping students with safety tools is one of the most effective ways to create safer schools in the future."We can't do it just by fencing and cameras, but it's the interaction of those officers with those individual students and those students feeling comfortable enough to go to those officers and say 'Hey, I have a concern about this student,'" Brown said at the roundtable. "And doing it before the problem occurs is going to make the difference."The Aug. 6 and 8 active shooter training was one of several that will take place throughout the school ye ar, according to the WCSO news release."The color of our uniform does not matter when we are facing a crisis involving our children," Crews stated in the release. "We will all respond, for the sake of our children, and this is the reason multiple local and state law enforcement agencies trained together during the active shooter scenarios.""The positive and proactive mindset of the school staff and teachers has played a huge role in the success of this train-ing," he stated.For more information about Washington County School District go to wcsdschools.com. SCHOOLSFrom Page A1Hunter's mother Shanae Boston has been on track with her daughter's race to the top. She said it was local coaches that encouraged her to harness her daughter's talent one of the reasons why she registered her to train at Spartan Chosen Track Club."She's definitely or improved since last year," Boston said. "Last year she did make it to the junior olympics, to the semi-finals. This year she made it all the way to the finals in the stuff she was com-peting in.""Her times have dropped tremendously in the last year."On the heels of Hunt-er's achievements, Coach Stanley and his Track Club is planning to visit and jumpstart a track team in Washington County. The News will update the story as information comes in. As of now, Boston said she is very proud of her daughter and is looking for community support for the local talent. Last year, she launched a crowd-funding page to pay for Hunter to go to the Junior Olympics."We're just looking to get more community involvement to help," she said.Follow Kinsleigh Hunter on Facebook under TeamNooney.

Rick Scotts office Wednes-day to demand a repeal of the states controversial stand your groundŽ law.Tensions over the July 19 shooting of Markeis McGlockton, with his three young children nearby, escalated after Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri decided not to arrest shooter Michael Drejka, who is white. Gualtieri said his hands were tied by the National Rifle Association-backed law that allows people who fear their lives are in danger to use deadly force without having to retreat.Its hard and, you know, I am still going to stand up and fight for what is right. My man was right. Markeis was right. He was just protecting us. He was a good man and a good father, and he didnt do nothing wrong,Ž Britany Jacobs, McGlock-tons live-in partner and the mother of his three children, told reporters and supporters gathered Wednesday morning at Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Tallahassee.McGlockton and Jacobs stopped at a convenience store to buy snacks for their children, Jacobs lawyer, Benjamin Crump, said. While McGlockton was inside, Drejka began to berate Jacobs for park-ing in a handicap parking spot. A videotape of the confrontation shows McGlockton shoving Drejka to the ground. Drejka then pulled out a gun and shot McGlockton, who appeared to be back-ing away. McGlockton, accompanied by his five-year-old son, ran into the store and later died.Gualtieri has insisted that the states stand your groundŽ law pre-vented him from arresting Drejka but that the case remains under investigation and has not been closed. State Attorney Bernie McCabes office is weighing whether to press charges.But critics of the sher-iff, including the NRA and some Republican law-makers, have said the law did not prevent Gualtieri from arresting Drejka, whom Crump said was the instigator of the con-frontation outside the Circle K.If he never would have started the altercation, there would be no reason for you to be in fear for your life,Ž Crump said.An expansion of the traditional Castle Doctrine,Ž the 2005 stand your groundŽ law gives people the right to defend themselves with deadly force in their own homes or any place they have a right to be. Floridas first-in-the-nation law, used as a model elsewhere, says people are justified in using deadly force and do not have a duty to retreatŽ if they believe it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. When the defense is successfully raised in pre-trial hearings, defendants are granted immunity from prosecution. A change approved last year by the Legislature and Scott shifted the burden from defendants to prosecutors to prove whether a self-defense claim is justified.The law has been a flashpoint for the black community since the death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in 2012 in Seminole County. Black leaders maintain that the law is disproportionately used to exonerate white shoot-ers of black victims.The statute and the subsequent changes have created confusion for the public and law-enforcement officials, Crump said.There was never a problem or anything wrong with self-defense and the Castle Doctrine. It was very clear, and every-body understood it. If you came to my house, then I had a right to defend my house. Now, everywhere is somebodys ground. It almost suggests that for black people and people of color, our ground is only where white people deem it appropriate to be,Ž Crump said.Gualtieri further outraged black leaders in Florida and the nation following a Sunday rally in Clearwater led by civil-rights leader Al Sharpton, who demanded the sher-iff either arrest Drejka or hand in his badge.I dont really care what Al Sharpton has to say. Go back to New York. Mind your own business,Ž Gualtieri said.The sheriffs comments elicited a sharp rebuke Wednesday from lawyer Michele Rayner, who represents McGlocktons family.Whether you are in Tallahassee, whether youre in Jacksonville, whether you are in Miami, whether you are in Tampa or whether youre in little old Clearwater, this is all of our business. And guess what we wont do? We will not rest. We will not rest until the shooter is arrested, until charges are filed, but most impor-tantly, until stand your ground is repealed,Ž she said.Jack Heekin, a Scott deputy chief of staff, met with Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Rev. R.B. Holmes and two others after the group marched to the Capitol. Gillum is a Democratic candidate for governor.Scotts aides pointed to lawmakers when asked if Scott, who is trying to unseat incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in November, would use his executive power to change the law."The governor expects that every Florida law be enforced and applied fairly by law enforcement and state attorneys, who are elected by Floridians. If the Legislature wants to make any changes to clarify Floridas laws next legislative session, they can do so," Scott spokesman McKinley Lewis said in an email.Even the staunchest supporters of Floridas stand your groundŽ law have questioned Gualtieris decision not to arrest Drejka, while at the same time they have decried efforts to politi-cize the law.The law is very clear, if there is probable cause an arrest can be made. If opportunistic politicians took the time to read and understand the law they would know that issue is with the facts of the case not the text of the law,Ž NRA Florida lobbyist Marion Hammer, a former president of the national organization, said in an email. Its irre-sponsible to second guess law enforcement without all of the facts and its appalling that politicians would attack a law that protects their constitu-ents constitutional right to self-defense to score cheap political points.ŽMcGlocktons shooting death adds to the political minefield around firearms. Democrats and others have demanded stricter gun laws in the aftermath of the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 14 students and three faculty members dead. We have a major elec-tion coming up within 90 days,Ž Holmes said, pointing out that all five Democratic candidates for governor have said they would work to repeal the stand your groundŽ law. So now its in our hands to support a gover-nor who has the courage and backbone to see the evil of the misapplica-tion of stand your ground law.ŽThe law makes it less safe for everyone,Ž said Gillum, the only black candidate running for governor.It creates tension in the community that shouldnt be there, between law enforcement, between citizens ƒ but ultimately it comes down to voters,Ž he said. The best way to make good on the demand to repeal stand your ground is to show up with your voter identification card or whatever creden-tial you need and cast your vote consistent with your belief that stand your ground has no place in the state of Florida.ŽCalls for repealing stand your ground hit CapitolJoined by Britany Jacobs, the longtime girlfriend of Markeis McGlockton, a black man who was shot dead in a dispute over a parking spot at a Clearwater convenience store, black pastors, civil rights leaders and politicians marched to Gov.

Bare“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett It was a classic good news/bad news situation for Facebook founder, chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. First, the bad news: One day late last month, he lost some $16.8 billion. The good news: One day late last month, he lost some $16.8 billion. That is to say, being in a position where you are capable of losing that kind of money suggests you are doing pretty darn well. Indeed, Bloomberg News estimated that even after the massive decline in his net worth, Zuckerberg was still worth a cool $70-or-so billion. Zuckerberg took a hit because Facebooks share price tanked that day, losing about 19 percent of its value, or about $100 billion in market capitalization. The worlds largest social media company reported disappointing figures for daily active users and revenue growth. Indeed, the number of daily active users the company has in North America and Europe is now falling. (Facebook remains banned in China, the worlds largest internet market.) Then theres the political messes and public relations problems the social network keeps finding itself in. Earlier this spring, it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica, a UK-based consulting firm, had improperly harvested the data of its users for political purposes. (Zuckerberg eventually apologized.) Cambridge Analytica, which was hired by the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, surreptitiously used data gathered from Facebook to build voter profiles. And theres also the endless scrutiny of the company over the apparent Russia-linked abuse of its platform. The New York Times reported earlier this year that Facebook, more than any other technology tool, was singled out ... by the Justice Department when Robert Muellers prosecutors charged 13 Russians and three companies for executing a scheme to subvert the 2016 election and support Donald J. Trumps presidential campaign.Ž It isnt only Facebook that is a site of disinformation. Twitter is arguably a more politically influential platform. Its beloved of political journalists and, of course, the president of the United States, who is nothing if not a prolific tweeter. But like Facebook, Twitter, too, is another carnival of fake news, computer bots and trolls. Meanwhile, many critics complain the sites algorithms and censorship standards favor left-wing speech over conservative ideas. Facebook recently blocked the Declaration of Independence, one of the foundational documents of American liberty, as hate speech, before reversing itself. The advent of social media has kept families and old friends connected, aided job seekers, and given us ways to pass the time. But we are still coming to grips with its effects. Facebook and Twitter have fueled our polarized culture, making it easier for people to confront only news that confirms their prior points of views. And it provided fertile ground for cynical political operators to spread lies. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Providence (R.I.) Journal, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Wild west of social media ANOTHER VIEW Trump is still being Trump. Whether he's holding his stand-up political rallies in Wilkes-Barre or Ohio, or delivering his incendiary early morning tweet storms, he's not going to change his wild and crazy ways. He's been doing a lot of great stuff in Washington, but if he wants to stay there he'd better be careful. The raw party numbers are against him. Last time around, in 2016, the Democrats had a deplorable candidate Hillary Clinton who lots of Democrats didn't like, either, and therefore didn't show up to vote for at the polls. Now Democrats have someone even bigger to collectively hate Donald Trump. He's already given them plenty of reasons to put on their "Impeach Trump Hats" and get out and vote for Democrats in the November congressional elections. But last week the president made things more difficult for himself by foolishly making a few million new enemies in the sports world by personally attacking LeBron James. Responding to the negative things the NBA superstar had said in a CNN interview with professional Trump-hater Don Lemon, the president tweeted: "LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made LeBron look smart, which isn't easy to do. I like Mike!" Though the president sided with Michael Jordan fans in the great debate over who's the greatest NBA player of all time, "Mike" sided with LeBron James, who had charged the president with using athletics and athletes to divide the country. Through a spokeswoman, Jordan responded, "I support LeBron James. He's doing an amazing job for his community." Though the Lemon interview included CNN's standard antiTrump political slant, it was focused on James' foundation's contribution of $2 million to help at-risk public school kids in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. The tweeter in chief might have been pleased with himself for scoring a few political dunks and inflaming the anti-Trump media for the millionth time. But if he wants to keep Congress Republican this fall, or have a second term, he's going to have to change and learn. We know he gets beat up unfairly by the liberal media and Democrats every day, all day. But so did Ronald Reagan. My father fought back on the issues or made jokes, but he never attacked anyone personally. President Trump should not have kept quiet about the Lemon and LeBron insults, but he's got to learn how to turn his enemies' blind hatred of him to his own advantage. He should have tweeted something like, "I'm sorry LeBron disagrees with me personally and doesn't appreciate the historically low unemployment rates and middle-class tax cuts my policies have created. But I like what he'd doing for those third and fourth graders in Akron. Our star athletes can do great things for their communities and I hope others follow LeBron's generous example." It wouldn't have been very Trumpian. It wouldn't have fit in a tweet. And it wouldn't have gotten the liberal media's panties in a twist for three days. But it would have immediately turned Lemon's and LeBron's cheap shots back on them and the rest of the liberal media and allowed the president to score a few political three-pointers of his own. As some point President Trump has to rise above this personal crap. His family already knows how to do it. First Lady Melania Trump publicly supported James' work in Akron through a spokesman. First Daughter Ivanka supported the press against her father, saying she didn't think journalists were the "enemy of the people." In one smart tweet the president could have turned the tables on Lemon and LeBron.Tweet presidentially, Mr. TrumpJust as more private-sector organizations are calling telecommuting workers back to the office, two politicians in Washington hope to encourage federal agencies to allow more government employees to work from home. As it goes, the Trump administration is seeking to cut back on federal employee telework programs. But Reps. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., and John Sarbanes, D-Md., are promoting the Telework Metrics and Cost Savings Act to prevent telework reductions. That's probably not a good idea. Look, as a freelance writer and author, I've been telecommuting for years. I'm alone in my home office all day long. It's not for the faint of heart. I hardly ever see real humans during the day. Every time the FedEx guy shows up, I demonstrate how much this isolation is getting to me. FedEx guy: "Sign here please." Me: "I hear it's going to rain tomorrow. Would you like a cup of coffee?" So, you see, I'm not so enamored with the homeoffice concept anymore. And I think I know why. Human beings don't like to be alone. We are social animals so social, in fact, that we would rather spend long days in corporate offices with other people than suffer longer days in utter freedom working alone in our homes. That's why, according to Forbes, more private-sector organizations are calling teleworkers back to the office. IBM, Apple and Google have discovered that when employees encounter each other in the office, they become more creative and productive than they are working alone at home. Even Generation Z and millennials, according to a new study by HR staffing firm Randstad US, prefer face-to-face conversations over electronic conversations and corporate offices over telecommuting. "While technology can make us more efficient, and feel highly connected to one another, it will never replace face-to-face conversations," reports Forbes. In any event, just as many organizations in the private sector are reversing course on employee telecommuting, two congressmen are pushing for full steam ahead. "Federal government telework programs not only improve productivity, but also save taxpayer money by increasing efficiency, strengthening employee retention and reducing costs for federal office space," Sarbanes told the Federal Times. If you say so, congressman. All I know is that I'm spending way too much time alone in my home. And as much as it worries me, it worries my neighbors more. No matter how often I tell them I'm a freelance writer, they don't believe me. They think I'm in the witness protection program.Home alone no way to work Tom Purcell Michael Reagan

"And I try to embody and embrace that past and utilize that for the future generations through my act and my talent."The festival is the city's largest event of the year. The funds from the event go toward the volunteer fire department and other community-based needs."It's more of an honor that the people would come out to support such a little town," said organizer Captain Adam Smith. "The name 'Possum Fest' is a funny name, but it means something to the com-munity. This is who are, this is our heritage. The possum saved a lot of people's life back in the Depression.""That's what this is about," he added.The deep local history of sur-vival on the marsupial was the cream of the crop as the first possum up for auction went to highest bidder Rep. Neal Dunn for nearly $1,000.Along with state political candidates, local candidates running for District 4 on Wash-ington County Board of County Commissioners, held the event in high esteem and took advan-tage of the opportunity to network with voters."I'm a long time supporter of this since I was just a boy," said District 4 candidate Todd Abbott. "The Abbotts have been in Washington County since the late 1800s, I've always supported Washington County. It's a good place whether I'm running for office or not I sup-port Washington County.""It's funding a great source, which is our fire department," he added. "The togetherness is phenomenal."Candidate for District 4 Wesley Griffin, also a county native, was also in attendance. He said laid-back, fun functions like the festival is a way for resi-dents to see their candidates for "who they are.""I'm a voice for the people," he said. "I will be an advocate for the people, somebody they can come talk to, and me address the situation and con-cerns they have for the county."He noted, if elected, he'd focus on the youth."That means creating stuff for them to do," he said. "That means invest in parks, recreation and work on the infrastructure of the county. You're only good as your foundation."While organizers did not have the amount raised immedi-ately available by time of press Friday, Smith said it was a good funding year and the city is poised for an even greater 50th anniversary next year."Every governor since 1970 that's been elected made an appearance at the Wausau Fun Day," said Wausau Mayor Roger Hagan. "We hope that what holds on today quenches the appetite for everyone to come back.""But we're looking forward to a big 50th anniversary," he added, although the next year won't be a heavy political hear. "A big 50 golden anniversary."Its family heritageThree-year-old Ryleigh Jean, pictured with Justin Gouge, braces herself to catch a beach ball off of a passing ” oat down State Road 77 during the annual parade at the 49th Annual Possum Festival and Fun Day, held Aug. 4 in Wausau.

If you have sports photos or stats you'd like to share with your fellow fans, please send information to: news@ chipleypaper.com.By Steve MegargeeThe Associated PressFlorida State quarterback Deandre Francois is happy to be playing football again and is trying to get his job back.Hes back on the practice field after injuring his knee in a season-opening loss to Alabama last fall and sitting out the rest of the year.New Florida State coach Willie Taggart has said he hasnt set a timetable on naming a starter for the Sept. 3 opener against Vir-ginia Tech. The coach is also looking at James Blackman who filled in for an injured Fran-cois last season, and redshirt freshman Bailey Hockman. Francois welcomes the challenge.Ive been competing all my life,Ž Francois said. Last year was devastating with the knee injury, but me being back is good. Im in a better place.

A list of players returning this year compiled by The Associated Press only includes players who missed at least half the season with season-ending injuries.That disqualifies Washington offensive tackle Trey Adams and Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson, who played just over half the season last year. They both could have a major impact on their teams.Since Middle Tennessee quarterback Brent Stockstill and Alabama linebacker Christian Pain, then gainsFSU QB Francois heads list of players returning from injury SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFBATON ROUGE, LA.LSU linebacker Taylor implicated in burglaryLSU has suspended sophomore linebacker Tylor Taylor, apparently after learning hed been arrested about two months ago in connection with a firearms theft from a pawn shop in Georgia.An official university statement says only that the suspension stems from a violation of team rules. However, police records in Cumming, Georgia, show that authorities suspect Taylor drove four suspected burglars to and from the pawn shop where the theft occurred on Jan. 8.A police report provided to The Associated Press shows stolen firearms were recovered and a sus-pect told police that Taylor was the getaway driver. The report states that Taylor declined to speak with police and requested an attorney.AUSTIN, TEXASCouncil urged to approve stadium proposalThe owner of the Colum-bus Crew is urging the Austin City Council to approve a stadium plan as he explores moving his team from Ohio to Texas.Anthony Precourt sent a letter to council members Thursday saying they have already negotiated one of the most favorableŽ Major League Soccer stadium deals in the country with a proposal for a 20,000-seat privately funded facility on city land. Precourts letter to council members said lets bring Major League Soccer to Austin.ŽPrecourt has courted Austin since late 2017 in an effort to move one of MLSs bedrock franchises. The Crew was one of the leagues founding teams when MLS began in 1996.BERLINGold for Guliyev at European ChampionshipsWorld champion Ramil Guliyev won the mens 200 meters at the European Athletics Championships on Thursday, and Elvira Herman of Belarus denied German hopes of gold in the womens 100-meter hurdles.Turkeys Guliyev set a championship record of 19.76 seconds in beating Britains Nethaneel Mitch-ell-Blake and Switzerlands Alex Wilson.The 21-year-old Herman clocked 12.67 seconds to beat Olympic bronze med-alist Pamela Dutkiewicz (12.72) and Cindy Roleder (12.77) both of Germany for her first medal at a major meet. By Tamer FakahanyThe Associated PressLONDON „ Somerville, Massachusetts, 26 May, 1989. Answerphone message, Beep:Its your brotherin-law, Andre. Arsenal needed to win by two clear goals at Anfield to win the league and did it with almost the last kick of the match!ŽAnd that tinny, brief and precious Trans-Atlantic message was how I found out in post-uni-versity U.S. exile how my North London team had its greatest moment since 1971, winning the First Division title at Liverpool, a team that had dominated the English game since the late 1970s.Its now globally known as the English Premier League, a multi-billiondollar behemoth that is ubiquitous outside the stadiums in which it is played, paying some of the most eye-watering wages to international household names Man-chester Uniteds World Cup Winner, Paul Pogba, Arsenals Mesut Ozil, Chelseas Eden Hazard, Liverpools Mohammed Salah and Manchester Citys Sergio Aguero to name but a few of its big-gest stars. The new season begins Friday and the hype is in overdrive.And where does this marauding cash cow get its vast mountains of money? In Great Britain, Sky Sports and telecoms group BT pay nearly 5 billion pounds ($6.43 billion) per season to the EPL to show live games. The leagues 20 teams get a hefty cut, thus enabling huge wages for some superstars and also some extremely average players. In America, NBC has the broadcasting rights, for which it pays handsomely. A six-year contract through 2021-22 is worth about $1 billion. Stateside, games are shown in designated bars, or, via cable, on a phone or tablet.Time zones are a challenge: get up early in the U.S. for weekend matches, watch later at night in parts of Asia. Acceptable to have a drink at 7.30am Eastern Time at kick off? Probably not. At Noon for the early evening game across the pond? Sure.Rewind to the early 1980s, the start of my time away from England in the U.S.A weekly phone call home with my parents was the key source of football information, or perhaps The New York TimesŽ or The Boston GlobeŽ would deign to print half an inch of results buried deep in the Sunday Sports section.Later in the same decade, the Columbia University library pro-vided recent copies of the British newspaper The GuardianŽ where I could devour match reports and neglect my gradu-ate studies on languorous afternoons.EPL wasnt always a global beast In this Sept. 2, 2017, “ le photo, Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois carries against Alabama during the second half of a game in Atlanta. Francois is happy to be playing football again and is trying to get his job back.

Hall, Jennings, Kelly and Kirkland have 62 career starts between them, but they played a combined total of three games last season. Hall and Kirkland didnt play a single down due to knee injuries. Kelly, Tennessees leading tackler in 2016, played just two games before a knee injury shut him down. Jennings, the Vols second-leading receiver in 2016, injured his wrist in the 2017 opener. Theyre all practicing now. PENN STATECB John Reid Reid earned honorable mention all-Big Ten honors in 2016 but sat out the 2017 season after injuring his left knee in spring practice. The 5-foot-10 Reid is back now and will try to boost a defense that must replace nine of its starters from last year. During the 2016 season, Reid started all 14 games in the secondary and also returned punts.SOUTH CAROLINAWR Deebo Samuel He scored six touchdowns in South Carolinas “ rst three games last season before a broken leg knocked him out for the remainder of the season.
