Bare“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett If history repeats itself, the red tide plaguing a large swath of our inshore Gulf coast will eventually go away. The dead fish and other marine life that succumbed to the harmful algae will be removed from beaches and basins. The respiratory irritation experienced by humans will subside. And legions of Floridians will forget the anger and dismay they now feel while viewing photographs and watching video of the impacts of red tide. It happened after the 2005-06 red tide, one of the worst in Floridas recorded history, that resulted in a dead zoneŽ the size of Rhode Island on the Gulf bottom and caused massive losses of fish and marine mammals. It happened after a two-year episode, from 1994 to 1996, and following the 1953-54 red tide that was, at the time, the longest on record. As the blooms faded, so did the negative environmental and economic impacts that generated public outcry. Thats not to say steps aimed at reducing the intensification of red tide, a naturally occurring phenomenon, havent been taken for the past three decades. They have occurred, and outbreaks have sometimes provided the impetus for incremental action. But Florida continues to lack a science-based, fully funded plan for controlling pollution „ from human-made nutrients „ that, according to the scientific consensus, can fuel the inshore growth of microscopic red tide organisms that originally develop 10 to 40 miles offshore. One problem is that, in general, when red tide is out of sight (and out of smelling distance), it is out of the publics mind and, thus, not a political priority. Another challenge is the complexity of the matter. There are different species of red tide algae; the bloom currently affecting the west coast is known as K. brevis, or Florida red tide. The vastness of the Gulf, the length of Floridas coastline and the diversity of conditions on the mainland make it difficult to reach sweeping conclusions about causes and effects. There is debate about if nutrient pollution impacts the frequency of red tides. However, scientists do believe once red tides are transported inshore, they are capable of using man-made nutrients for growth. Pictures of bright-green, algae-laden water released from Lake Okeechobee toward the west and east coasts have fueled public outrage and reinforced the widely held belief that red tide outbreaks are being lengthened and intensified by pollution from development, septic tanks and agriculture north of Lake Okeechobee. Regardless of red tide, this pollution should be dramatically reduced and water management practices dramatically overhauled. Doing so will take money and commitment. Could outrage over red tide force Floridians and their leaders to take pollution seriously? Perhaps but, as history has shown, only if it is sustained „ after the red tide goes away. This editorial first appeared in the Sarasota Herald Tribune, a sister paper with GateHouse Media. Outcry must persist once red tide fades ANOTHER VIEW Americas political history has been written in the fierce narrative of war „ not only our countrys many military clashes with foreign nations, but also our own unending war for democracy in the U.S. Generation after generation of moneyed elites have persisted in trying to take wealth and power from the workaday majority and concentrate both of those things in their wealthy hands to establish a de facto American aristocracy. Every time, the people have rebelled in organized mass struggles against the monopolist and financial royalists „ literally battling for a little more economic fairness, social justice, and equal opportunity. And now, the time of rebellion is upon us again, for We the People are suddenly in the grip of a brutish level of monopolistic power. Corporate concentration of markets, profits, workplace decision-making, political influence and our nations total wealth is surpassing that of the infamous era of robber barons. Apple, which just became the first U.S. corporation to reach a stock value of a trillion dollars, is now larger than Bank of America, Boeing, Disney, Ford, Volkswagon and 20 other brand-name giants combined. Just five tech superpowers „ Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google and Netflix „ have raked in half of this years stock price gains by the 500 top corporations ranked by the S&P index. A recent gold rush of corporate mergers has created mega-firms and shriveled competition in most industries, including airlines, banks, drug companies, food, hospitals, hotels, law firms, media, oil and more. The results of fewer and bigger corporations is that those few attain overwhelming power over the rest of us. They are able to control workers pay, crush unions, jack up prices, squeeze our smaller businesses, dominate elections, weaken environmental projections... and become even fewer, bigger and more powerful. Thus, they are waging all out corporate class war on American people, and on our democratic ideals, and theyre winning. These monopolies are not merely un-American, theyre virulently anti-American, suppressing our fundamental values of fairness and opportunity for all. Thats why, throughout our history, the people have instinctively rebelled at the arrogant assertions of monopoly avarice „ the Boston Tea Party, the Populist Movement, the rise of unions, Teddy Roosevelts trust busters, the Progressive Party, the muckrakers, the New Deal, Ralph Nader and on and on. Yet, in the stunningly short period of the last couple of decades, corporate political money and the public officials it bought have enshrined monopoly power as a legitimate form of business in our land, aggressively protected from public meddlingŽ by lawmakers, regulators and judges. For example, after our grassroots economy was crushed in 2007 by the greed of too-big-to-fail Wall Street banksters, officials bailed out the villainous banks at the taxpayer expense and deliberately made them bigger, more powerful and more dangerous than ever. Today, just five banks control nearly half of all financial assets in the U.S. Youd think such a massive power grab by bank monopolists would produce an equally massive, 24/7 barrage of coverage by the nations multitude of media outlets, which purport to be our defenders of democracy. And sure, an occasional story pops out here or there about monopoly abuse, but nothing comprehensive and cohesive to rally a public rebellion against whats become the United States of Monopoly Rule. As a paragon of journalistic integrity, A.S. Liebling, warned nearly 40 years ago, Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one.Ž Jim Hightower is an author, radio commentator and a columnist with Creators Syndicate. Monopoly or democracy? Jim HightowerIt's a drastically different world than when I was working a summertime job during college. The first summer, a middle-aged co-worker would proudly pat his ample stomach and announce, "This is my baby Bud Miller!" The second summer, my boss (hi, Elgin!) tried (unsuccessfully) to get me to drink my first beer.(I know quaffing that first brew is supposed to be an indispensable "rite of passage" into adulthood, but over the decades I've been too busy with a mortgage, in-laws, pallbearer duties, job changes, diaper changes, male pattern baldness and prostate exams to mourn the missed opportunity. Adulthood? I sometimes long for a "rite of return passage" to my teddy bear!)As I was saying, nowadays smokers are marginalized. Daytime soap operas are almost extinct. Salsa has eclipsed ketchup. Miss America is relegated to obscurity. Kids would rather play soccer than baseball. And, according to the Wall Street Journal, as of last year, U.S. drinkers for the first time are more likely to choose wine or a cocktail over beer. Health-consciousness by millennials, a "bourbon renaissance," the end of a voluntary liquor industry ban on radio and TV advertising and other factors have left brewers crying in their beer, the WSJ reports. Oh, drinkers still chose beer 49.7 percent of the time and the decline represents only one less bottle per average consumer per week (versus 20 years ago). But the dollars add up and the milestone is a big psychological blow to brewers. ("Our coffers get less filling!")Beer executives who used to be cutthroat rivals are now pooling their resources to promote beer in general. One of my anonymous sources has revealed some of their ideas, including a patriotic appeal to the core loyal market ("When the going gets tough, the tough get older and whiter")."I just realized: baby Bud Miller must be pushing 40 now! ("Hey! I think I barfed up salsa on Miss America at a soccer game! Dad would've been so proud. Next year, I'll dedicate my Arbor Day tuba and lederhosen routine to him!")Can The Beer Industry Still Brew Up A Comeback? Danny Tyree

** Washington County News | Wednesday, August 15, 2018 A5 LOCAL & STATEBy Brady Dennis and Lori RozsaThe Washington PostIn recent days, the U.S. Senate race in Florida has turned decidedly slimy.Incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, D, and his Repub-lican challenger, Gov. Rick Scott, have taken turns blaming each other for the toxic blue-green algae blooms plaguing parts of the state, which have killed marine life, raised public health con-cerns and threatened the Sunshine State's tourism industry. And even as they accuse each other of inaction, both the two-term governor and the three-term senator have scrambled to prove how dedicated they are to addressing the problem.In a campaign season dominated by talk of immigration, trade tariffs, the Supreme Court and all things President Donald Trump, the clash in Flor-ida over an unfolding environmental disaster could prove a pivotal issue in one of the nation's most closely watched Senate races this fall.The state has wrestled with serious algae blooms before, including in 2016, when the toxic goop invaded waterways along Florida's coast, forcing the governor to declare a state of emergency. Then, as now, the state's largest freshwater body, Lake Okeechobee, was at risk of overflowing because of massive rains. That led the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the fed-eral agency charged with monitoring water levels, to open levees surround-ing the lake and dump the water that had been pol-luted by runoff into rivers and estuaries that lead toward the ocean.On Florida's southeast coast, the result has been a gooey, smelly bluegreen-brown algae that has closed businesses and sickened dozens of people. Along more than 100 miles of the south-west coast, meanwhile, a bout of red tide has killed thousands of sea ani-mals, including dolphins, manatees and endangered sea turtles. Scientists are continuing to research the underlying causes of that problem.The problem has become a focus in the contentious Senate contest as business owners have raised complaints and some families have been temporarily driven from their homes because of the foul smell. The blame game hit the airwaves last week when Scott put out a television ad„ titled "More waiting, more talk, more algae"„ that criticized Nelson and the federal government for allowing discharges of tainted water from Lake Okeechobee that have led to ugly, smelly and poten-tially dangerous algal blooms on the state's St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers, among other spots."Washington politician Bill Nelson made a pledge 30 years ago to solve this problem," Scott's ad says. "But Nelson's a talker, not a doer." The ad concludes with Scott saying, "I don't wait for Washington."Nelson hasn't taken such criticism quietly. He has visited areas affected by the toxic gunk, which thrives when warm, nutrient-rich water com-bines with runoff from agricultural operations and other development, and he faults Scott for systematically dismantling the state's capacity to head off environmental calamities during his eight years as governor.Nelson also unveiled his own ad this week: "Flori-da's algae bloom crisis is a man-made crisis, made by this man," it says, as a picture of Scott flashes across the screen. "The water is murky, but the fact is clear. Rick Scott caused this problem."Frank Jackalone, direc-tor of the Sierra Club's Florida chapter, said that although Scott is trying to shift the blame to Nelson, the governor is the one largely responsible for the crisis."The fact is, Rick Scott has had far more power to deal with these issues than Bill Nelson," Jackalone said. "Bill Nelson has one vote in the U.S. Senate. Rick Scott is the governor of Florida and has had the power to enforce the Clean Water Act in the state. He could have enforced pollution regulations. Instead, he cut back funding, rolled back regulations, and eliminated a large part of his enforcement staff."During Scott's tenure, budgets for environmen-tal agencies have been slashed. The South Florida Water Management District, which oversees water issues from Orlando to Key West, had its budget slashed. Many of the more than 400 work-ers who lost their jobs in the $700 million cut were scientists and engineers whose jobs were to mon-itor pollution levels and algae blooms. Scott also abolished the Department of Community Affairs, which oversaw develop-ment in the state.Lauren Engel, communications director for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, noted that the blue-green algae is caused by pollution coming from Lake Okeechobee. Like Scott, she pointed to the fact that the Army Corps„ a federal agency„ is in charge of water released from the lake."Pollution buildup in Lake Okeechobee has been going on for decades," Engel said Thursday, calling criticism that Scott's environmental policies have allowed more pollution into the lake and made a bad situ-ation worse "an unfair characterization."Blair Wickstrom, publisher of the Florida Sportsman, agreed that the problem stretches back at least a decade."It's been going on since before Scott, but since he took office, there's been a distinct rise in nutrients from Lake Okeechobee and an increase in algae blooms," Wickstrom said. "This is not an act of God or not because we can't handle the rain. It's the lack of regulation at the state level."Researchers say they are hampered by the lack of information; Scott's budget cuts have reduced water-quality monitoring stations around the state, as well as the frequency of water sampling. Scientists say the lack of data prevents them from fig-uring out what has caused these latest toxic algae blooms and providing the sort of early warning that could prompt officials to act sooner."It would be interesting to understand why this is happening, but we can't do that with the data we have," said Karl Havens, a University of Florida professor and director of Florida Sea Grant.Last month, Scott declared a state of emer-gency for seven Florida counties, as he put it, "to help combat algal blooms caused by Lake Okeechobee water discharges from the Army Corps of Engineers." He ordered the state's Department of Environmental Protection and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ramp up water-quality testing, set up a multimillion-dollar grant program aimed at helping pay for cleanups and directed state agen-cies to aid local businesses affected by the crisis.For his part, Nelson has implored the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study the potential health effects of the algae blooms. He also has proposed legisla-tion seeking tax breaks to small businesses affected by the situation and to make more federal fund-ing available to research the problem.Environmental crisis takes center stage in tight Senate race By Terry Spencer and Gary FineoutThe Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE „ Florida reacted to the Marjory Stoneman Doug-las High School massacre by becoming the first state to require police or armed guards at all public schools. Its a mandate many districts are struggling to meet, financially and logistically.In the first comprehensive statewide examination of the pro-gram, an Associated Press survey of Floridas 67 countywide school dis-tricts found all campuses will be covered when they reopen this month, but many districts are having difficulty funding the pro-gram and finding enough applicants. About a third are supplementing officers with armed civilian security guards, includ-ing, in some cases, school staff members.Before the Feb. 14 attack, a few districts already had officers at every campus, but the majority of districts didnt cover any or most elemen-tary schools, and some didnt staff all middle schools. Now every school must have armed protection whenever its open. In districts that wont have full staffing in place when classes start, local law enforcement agencies are filling gaps by taking officers off the street or paying overtime.Thats happening in Palm Beach County. The district budgeted $9 mil-lion to add 75 officers to its 160-member in-house police department, and is asking voters to raise taxes to pay for them. But it isnt getting enough applicants „ Florida has several thousand police and deputy vacancies, and not just for schools.There simply are not enough officers to go around,Ž said Kathy Burstein, Palm Beach schools spokeswoman. The district, which has almost 200,000 students at 170 campuses, will not be arming staff or hiring civilian guards.The Florida Legislature budgeted $165 million to partially cover districts new security costs, but then cut proposed educa-tion spending. Before the massacre, Gov. Rick Scott recommended increasing the districts base alloca-tion by $152 per student. Legislators, after passing the security package, cut that to 47 cents.They robbed Peter to pay Paul,Ž said Jim Norton, superintendent of the four-school Gulf County district. It had two officers but will now have four plus a supervisor at an additional district cost of about $50,000 „ the sheriffs office is covering the rest. We all have the same commitment to safer schools, but we also have a duty to provide something beyond daycare.ŽThe National Center for Education Statistics says a 2016 survey showed two-thirds of U.S. middle and high schools had an assigned police officer at least part-time; about a third of elementary schools were protected this way.Having an armed guard on campus doesnt guar-antee safety. The deputy at Stoneman Douglas didnt confront the shooter who killed 17 people. Ten were killed in May at a Texas high school where two school officers exchanged fire with the suspect before he surrendered. But school officers have stopped other shoot-ings before anyone was killed, such as one in May in Dixon, Illinois.The AP found 45 Florida districts are solely using police officers for campus protection.Most contract with law enforcement agencies to hire and employ them, while the few that have school police forces are expanding them. An experienced officer can cost $100,000 annually in salary, benefits and equipment, and any cost not covered by the state falls on local taxpayers.Schools struggle to meet security rulesSee SCHOOL, A6

** A6 Wednesday, August 15, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Christine SextonThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Flor-ida has received failing grades from an American Cancer Society politicalaction committee for not taking more steps to prevent cancer and for not expanding access to health care for uninsured working adults.In the organizations annual How You Measure Up?Ž report, Florida earned a passing, or green, mark in just one of nine categories „ for a Medicaid program that treats women with breast and cervical cancer.Known as the Mary Brogan Breast & Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program, lawmakers reduced funding for the program this year compared to prior year levels. But its the first time that the Legislature has agreed to use recurring money to fund the program „ named after former Lt. Gov Frank Brogans late wife „ which means it should be built into the base of future state budgets.The report measures Florida and other states on where they stand on issues that the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network says will reduce suffering and death from cancer. The report says the guidelines set by the organization are based on proven policy solutions.ŽAccording to the Ameri-can Cancer Society, more than 2.1 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2018.Florida earned a failing, or red, score for not passing a law to ban minors from using tanning devices. Current law allows children under age 14 to use tanning devices when accompanied by adults. Parental consent to use tanning devices is required for children between ages 14 and 18.The state also failed to meet the organizations benchmark for Medicaid smoking-cessation policies. According to the report, not all Medicaid patients are entitled to counseling or have access to tobacco-cessation medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Florida is one of 17 states that have not passed a Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. The refusal to do so earned the state a failing grade in the report.Meanwhile, the report said Florida made improvements in such ways as introducing the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Networks model legislation to create a statewide expert advi-sory council on end-of-life care.Also, the group gave Florida improvement scores for its 2018 tobacco-control funding, $68.6 million, and for its ciga-rette tax rate.This years report includes information on how Floridas new policies related to opioids affect cancer patients. Cancer society executives have included the information in a Hanging in the Bal-anceŽ section of the report and say it will be a recurring feature in future reports.Report nds aws in Floridas cancer e orts The staffing increases range from two officers in smaller districts to dozens in larger ones. Along with protecting students, such school resource officers investigate campus crimes, make arrests and can be reassigned off campus during summer and other breaks.Flagler County Super-intendent James Tager said his district south of Jacksonville felt more comfortable sticking with deputies, many of whom become student mentors. He said little thought was given to arming staff.Teachers teach and law enforcement does law enforcement,Ž he said.The other 22 districts are supplementing officers with guardiansŽ „ armed civilians or staff. They are vetted, receive 132 hours of training and must attain a higher score on the state firearms test than rookie police officers. SCHOOLFrom Page A5

** A14 Wednesday, August 15, 2018 | Washington County NewsThe Eagles Malcolm Jenkins (center, left) raises his “ st during the national anthem before the teams preseason game against the Steelers on Thursday in Philadelphia. [MATT ROURKE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]The players kneel. The pres ident tweets. And the great divide over protests during the national anthem at NFL games grows even wider. So far the players „ at least a handful of them „ arent backing down. A few took a knee in the first weekend of exhibition games, at least two raised a fist during the anthem, and several stayed in the locker room as their way of making a statement. The NFL reacted by doing nothing, at least publicly. The leagues hastily adopted new policy on protests during the anthem is on hold while it holds talks with the players union on an issue that figures to grow more contentious with every game. That didnt stop President Donald Trump from weighing in on Twitter, calling for any player who doesnt stand during the national anthem to be suspended without pay. For Trump, its an issue that resonates with his base. For the protesting players, its an issue of social injustice that needs to be raised. The divide is not only splitting the country, but splintering the NFL. I think there are a lot of people that are supportive of the players and then there are a couple of people that have been very vocal against it,Ž said Duane Brown, one of three Seahawks who protested. Those people have power. Well see what happens.Ž What has happened so far is that the protests that began with Colin Kaepernick taking a knee before a 49ers game two seasons ago show no signs of disappearing entirely. If anything, the first preseason games show that while most teams fell in line with the desires of their management, there are some players who arent going to back down. And that could cause major problems not only for protesti ng players but a league trying to keep its dominant place in American sports. The NFL is caught, they cant really win either way,Ž said Eric Schiffer, the CEO of Reputation Management Consultants, a Los Angeles-based brand and crisis management firm. Theyve now come to the conclusion they were alienating conservatives and attempted to mitigate it. But they have only so much they are able to do without alienating the core of their product, which is the players.Ž The fact the protests have been turned into something they were never intended to be is a big reason why a resolution will be so difficult. Kaepernick began kneeling during the anthem to protest social injustice against minorities, but Trump and others have portrayed it instead as a protest against the anthem itself and the country it stands for. Still, an NFL spokesman said the league and the players union are involved in constructiveŽ talks to resolve the issue. But theyre in a battle with time, with the start of the regular season just a few weeks away. They might want to start with one of the few good suggestions offered publicly so far. It came from Kenny Stills, the Miami wide receiver who took a knee during the national anthem in the Dolphins first preseason game. Give Kaepernick and former teammate Eric Reid jobs, Stills said, and let players know youre serious. You cant say as a league you support the players and their protests and then blackball the players who initially started the protests,Ž Stills said. To come to the drawing board and talk about solutions, we need to start there as a league, and then we can start drawing up other solutions to some of these other problems.Ž Employing Kaepernick and Reid shouldnt be that much of a problem. Both are NFL players at the highest level, and both seem to have been blackballed from the league „ at least unofficially „ because of their protests. Offer them up to every team in the league. Waive any salary cap to do it, and there should be some takers. If no team bites, assign them through a lottery. After that, it gets easier. Offer players something in exchange for not protesting during the anthem „ perhaps a 30-second commercial spot to highlight social injustice at halftime of every nationally televised game. The guess is players would respond favorably, partly because they have little alternative. By now they surely understand that their original cause has been hijacked and that they „ along with the NFL „ are in no-win situations. Their points can still be made, and perhaps find a more receptive audience. And, just maybe, the tweets will stop.Is there a path forward in NFL protests? SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFCHARLOTTE, N.C.IndyCar leader Dixon signs extension with GanassiScott Dixon will likely finish his career with Chip Ganassi Racing under a new contract for one of IndyCars greatest drivers.The extension announced Monday puts Dixon behind the wheel of the PNC Bank-spon-sored entry and ends all speculation hed leave Ganassi after 17 seasons to join Fernando Alonso on a new McLaren team.

All it took was pressing the delete key.Soccer officials and players who bother checking out the new code of ethics governing their conduct will find the word corrup-tionŽ missing. They will also discover how to now avoid being banned for paying and receiving bribes.Corruption was scrubbed as an official misdemeanor during secret meetings where executives executed the first overhaul of the code since a wave of scandals left soccers governing body clinically deadŽ by 2015. That was the hyperbole used by Gianni Infantino during a speech at the World Cup in June boasting of his own apparent achievements cleaning up FIFA.But in two years as FIFA president, Infantino has been accused of violating governance rules and forcing out officials who threatened his position.It will be even easier now for FIFA to banish critics.A new offense has been introduced in the ethics code „ defamation. There are no specific examples, pro-viding flexibility for the ethics committee to decide on the burden of proof „ as with all cases.Persons bound by this code are forbidden from maki ng any public statements of a defamatory nature towards FIFA and/or towards any other person bound by this code in the con-text of FIFA events,Ž section 22.2 of the new code states.Those found to have defamed FIFA will be banned from any football-related activi-ties for up to two years and they can be booted out for five years for repeated serious cases.Ž The vagueness provides leeway for FIFA, through theoretically independent ethics organs, to punish detractors.The ethics code was first introduced in 2004 by Sepp Blatter to pro-vide a veneer of probity for an organization abused for personal gain by so many for decades. Of course, Blatter was expelled from the FIFA presidency for financial misconduct in 2015 by the ethics committees he created. Blatters toppling came amid the fallout from American prosecutors indicting dozens of football officials and entities for corruption „ the concept now erased by FIFA from its principle English-language ethics documents.Bribery is still prohib-ited in the ethics code, but the ability to prosecute cases has been weakened.Kick backsKeep bribes quiet for 10 years, FIFA wont punish you T i m D a h l b e r g Tim DahlbergSaints players stand for the singing of the national anthem before a preseason game against the Jaguars on Thursday in Jacksonville, Fla.

Washington Academy of Varying Exceptionalities (WAVE) welcomed 46 students from ages 3 to 22. The school is designated for students with different levels of cognitive disabilities and is housed at the former fifth grade wing at Roulhac Middle School. Its gone very smoothly,Ž said Teacher on Special Assignment Brenda Bausnaw, who has worked at WCSD for 15 years. It was everything I could ask for on the first day of school, opening a brand new school.Ž The school has its own administrator, speech therapist, behavioral specialist, and a number of ESE-dedicated teachers and paraprofessionals. Bausnaw said the open house held at the campus helped to build a foundation for close parent-teacher relationships, something critical to meeting the needs of her students. We want to partner with them and its very important to us,Ž she said, regarding parents of her students. Im very passionate about ESE. They touch a very special place in my heart.Ž The first-day transition from summer was equally seamless at other schools across the district from transportation to parental cooperation and support, according to Washington County Superintendent Joseph Taylor. We had one of the best that I know of for an opening day of school,Ž he said.

** B2 Wednesday, August 15, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Stocks fell further on Wall Street Monday as Turkeys central bank was unable to stop a steep plunge in that nations currency. Thats helping to push the dollar higher, which hurts big U.S. exporters.Stocks were coming off their worst losses in a month as investors worried about financial and economic upheaval in Turkey and the possibility it will spread to other countries. Asian markets fell overnight, while European markets were slightly lower.Global markets skid-ded Friday as investors worried that financial distress in Turkey could affect the international banking system and the broader economy. Many analysts say that isnt likely, but its caused sharp losses for stocks.On Monday Turkeys central bank announced measures to help that countrys banks, but the Turkish lira and Turkeys stock market continued to slide.The U.S. dollar is the strongest its been in more than a year, which could eventually create problems for U.S. com-panies that make a lot of sales overseas.Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Manage-ment, said the dollar has strengthened because economic growth has picked up and other regions arent doing as well.The U.S. is a rela-tive beacon of strength with stable to improving economy. That suggests a stronger dollar,Ž he said.Energy and industrial companies and basic materials com-panies took some of the worst losses. Technology companies held up better. Investors are worried about a confluence of factors including Tur-keys reliance on foreign loans, which become more difficult to repay when the countrys cur-rency is plunging. Also, a diplomatic spat with the U.S. is resulting in sharply higher tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum.After a yearlong stretch where much of the global economy was speeding up together and stocks were rising, the recent losses for Turkey and Argentina have caused emerging market indexes to fall out of favor.Stocks were on a five-week winning streak before last week, and strong corporate earnings reports were a big factor. But most of those reports are done, and Sandven, of U.S. Bank, said stocks may spend the next two months wavering.In corporate news, German conglomerate Bayer took a dive after a U.S. jury ruled against its Monsanto unit Friday and awarded $289 million to a former school groundskeeper who said that exposure to Monsantos Roundup weed killer caused cancer. Monsanto said government agencies and hundreds of studies have concluded Roundup is safe.Turkey currency worries cause stocks to tumbleBy Suzan FraserThe Associated PressANKARA, Turkey „ Turkeys central bank took action Monday to free up cash for banks as the country grapples with a currency crisis sparked by concerns over President Recep Tayyip Erdogans economic policies and a trade and diplomatic dispute with the United States.The Turkish lira has nosedived over the past week, accelerating a months-long decline, and tumbled another 7 percent on Monday as the central banks measures failed to restore market confidence.Investors are worried about a confluence of factors: the countrys reliance on foreign loans that may stop flowing in as interest rates rise in other economies, like the U.S.; Erdogans insistence that the central bank not raise interest rates, as most independent analysts say it should; and a spat with the U.S. that has led to sanctions and the fear of greater isolation from longtime allies in the West.The uncertainty pushed down world stock markets and briefly caused a sharp drop in the curren-cies of other emerging countries, like South Africa and India, amid concerns that investors might see similar prob-lems in their economies.The lira hit a record low of 7.23 per dollar late Sunday after Erdogan remained defiant in his economic policies and the standoff against the United States, a NATO ally.Turkey is faced with an economic siege,Ž Erdogan said Monday, in the latest of a series of speeches. We are taking the necessary steps against these attacks and will continue to do so.ŽHe has threatened to seek new alliances „ a veiled hint at closer ties with Russia „ and warned of drastic measures if businesses withdraw foreign currency from banks.Turkey tries to contain crisis but currency keeps fallingBy Ryan NakashimaThe Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO „ Google wants to know where you go so badly that it records your movements even when you explicitly tell it not to.An Associated Press investigation found that many Google services on Android devices and iPhones store your location data even if youve used a privacy setting that says it will prevent Google from doing so. Computer-science researchers at Princeton confirmed these findings at the APs request.For the most part, Google is upfront about asking permission to use your location information. An app like Google Maps will remind you to allow access to location if you use it for navigating. If you agree to let it record your location over time, Google Maps will display that history for you in a timelineŽ that maps out your daily movements.Storing your minuteby-minute travels carries privacy risks and has been used by police to determine the location of suspects „ such as a warrant that police in Raleigh, North Carolina, served on Google last year to find devices near a murder scene. So the company will let you pauseŽ a setting called Location History.Google says that will prevent the company from remembering where youve been. Googles support page on the subject states: You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.ŽThat isnt true. Even with Location History paused, some Google apps automatically store timestamped location data without asking. (Its possible, although laborious, to delete it .)For example, Google stores a snapshot of where you are when you merely open its Maps app. Automatic daily weather updates on Android phones pinpoint roughly where you are.

** B4 Wednesday, August 15, 2018 | Washington County News FAITHSpecial to The News Matthew 5:19 says Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.Ž On Sunday, Aug. 19, at 11 a.m., Orange Hill Missionary Baptist Church, 816 Sunday Road, under the pastorate of Rev. Malcolm O. Nelson, will celebrate their 38th annual Homecoming. This years theme is Reconnecting With Our Christian RootsŽ (Colossians 2:6-7); reconnecting with the Roots of Faith (Hebrews 11:13), Hope (I Peter 1:3), Love (John 15:17), Belief (I John 5:1), Worship (John 4:23), Obedience (Acts 5:29), etc. The speaker will be the Rev. Donald Bell, pastor of the Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church of Pensacola. Besides being the nephew of Thelma Bell Farmer, wife of Rev. Luther V. Farmer, he is the great grandson of Rev. Austin D. Bell, Sr. and Nina Wilson Bell. His greatgreatgrandfather, John Bell, a sharecropper, was promised land in Florida if he moved his family to Florida from Oakfield, Georgia, and do farming for his overseer. The Bell family therefore moved to Econfina, a little community on the Bay County line. Eventually the family was given a few acres of their own, so they moved to the southeast portion of Washington County, known as the community of Orange Hill. Since the time of Reconstruction, 1865 to 1877 following the American Civil War, the Orange Hill Missionary Baptist Church has been serving the Orange Hill community. The 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery in the United States, was passed on December 6th, 1865. The church was established five years after that amendment in 1870; the first year of the U.S. Census to list all persons including former slaves as persons. While the famous Fisk Jubilee Singers were forming on the Fisk University campus in Nashville, Tennessee OHMBC was worshiping and working the works of God in Florida. The Gospel song writer, Fanny J. Crosby, had just written her famous hymns Pass Me Not, O Gentle SaviorŽ (1868) Jesus Keep Me Near the CrossŽ (1869), and Rescue The PerishingŽ (1870) that we still sing our church services today. Recently a church steeple was placed upon the church. The church steeple directs our attention upwards and the end result, hopefully, will be that we are drawn to God and as Jesus said And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myselfŽ (John 12:32). The cross atop is drawing people to Christ; that we might have a heavenly frame of mind upon coming into worship. Out of Orange Hill sprung the Mt. Ararat Missionary Baptist Church and from them the Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church. The first Pastor of Orange Hill was Rev. James Cady from Jackson County. The following pastors have been: Rev. Webb, Rev. Benjamin, Rev. Green, Rev. Gipson, Rev. Linsay, Rev. B. A. Allen, Rev. Blount, Rev. Woods, Rev. Joseph Young, Rev. Jessie Ward, Rev. Jefferson, Rev. Sam Cherry, Rev. Adolphus McLaughlin, Rev. James Johns (longest serving pastor) and the current pastor Rev. Malcolm O. Nelson. At one point in its rich history the Church gave the Washington County School System one of their 20 acres of land to build a public school for black children in the community. After the schools were consolidated in Washington County, the school board gave the acre of land back. During Black History Month this historic church celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the closing of T.J. (Thomas Joseph) Roulhac High School (1938-1968); End of An EraŽ. Fifty years ago the doors of the beloved T.J. Roulhac High School were closed. It marked the end of an era of a unique education. With hand me down booksŽ and second rate materials the students of old TJ Roulhac High received a first rate education. OHMBC certainly is a church on the move, with a message and a mission: A charge to keep, a God to glorify ƒ.. to serve the present age, our calling to fulfill ƒ.. to do our Masters will.Ž All are invited to join in the celebration on Sunday, Aug. 19 at 11 a.m. There will be a fellowship dinner following morning worship.Church celebrates 38th Homecoming If you would like to include an event in this list, email information to: news@chipley paper.com Bonifay First United Methodist to host USDA Food Distribution BONIFAY … Bonifay First United Methodist Church will host a USDA Food Distribution at 9 30 a.m. at the church on the following Wednesdays: August 15, October 17 and December 19.

FOODBy Charlene PetersMore Content NowEnglands longest river, the Thames, led me to the bridge I knew only from a beloved childhood nursery rhyme. London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down ƒŽ Contrary to the singing game, it is not made of pastel confections that could collapse on a fair damsel, but is an impressive steel-and-concrete structure that carries cars and pedestrians across the river by the thousands. I crossed this iconic bridge in the direction of one of the oldest and largest markets in London, Borough Market, a popular place to peruse Londons culinary highlights in the form of a one-stop shopping experience. Sausage baps and Balkan bites may be foreign to me, but pies I know, and suddenly, I stood in front of a glass case filled with an assortment of perfectly crisp crusts over an appealing bulge of ingredients. I was drawn to Pieministers Deerstalker Pie: chunks of local venison with dry-cured bacon, red wine and Puy lentils. Matador Pie was filled with British beef, spicy chorizo, olives and butter beans. I longed to take one home and bake it. I was, however, on my way to stay at the five-star St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London, a glamorous Gothic-revival building that also serves as a train station (handy for catching my connection to Paris the next day). The grandeur of the lobby/terminal was filled with the intoxicating aroma of hundreds of orchids; they were everywhere. To reach my room, I passed wrought-iron balustrades and original gaslights. Up the grand staircase was a vaulted ceiling adorned with twinkling stars and illustrations of the Seven Virtues: Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Patience, Kindness and Humility. Once at the top, it became evident why this staircase is considered the most majestic in England. Inside my room, I opened the drapes and a view of the bustling train station below was revealed. I was on sensory overload, and calmed my mind with a soak in the rooms oversized tub, while daydreaming about what life might be like in High Victorian times. I dressed and headed downstairs to discover the hotels Chambers Club. For an upcharge, this section provides access to a members onlyŽ area for breakfast, light afternoon tea and pre-dinner canaps. The Chambers Club offers a la carte lunch and dinner, as well as a menu of Champagnes and premium wines. That evening, however, I chose to dine at the Booking Office Bar and Restaurant, formerly the train station ticket office circa 1862. Under the restaurants vaulted ceiling, live jazz was performed, best listened to with a glass of Billy Dawson Victorian punch, whose 1800s recipe is replicated from the very first punch barŽ in London. This tasty elixir combines Thailand cognac and Jamaican rum, aged in barrels made of coconut husk. Dinner follows suit in high style, plus British-style service and attention to detail, right down to the etched glasses and the best ƒ truffle chips ƒ ever. I started with a British tradition of Scotch eggs. How they manage a softboiled interior coated with a warm and crisp exterior is a marvel. I then indulged in a perfectly cooked London broil (what else?) with a flavorful eggplant accompaniment. I was so ready for slumber after that hearty meal.
