Marco Rubio„ voted on major issues during the week ending Aug. 17. The House was in recess. SenateJUDGE MARVIN QUATTLEBAUM: Voting 62 for and 28 against, the Senate on Aug. 16 confirmed A. Marvin Quattlebaum, Jr., a federal judge for the district of South Carolina, for a seat on the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals based in Richmond, Va.A yes vote was to confirm Quattlebaum.Voting yes: NelsonNot voting: RubioJUDGE JULIUS RICHARDSON: Voting 81 for and eight against, the Senate on Aug. 16 confirmed Julius N. Richardson, 41, a federal prosecutor based in Colum-bia, S.C., for a seat on the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.A yes vote was to confirm Richardson.Voting yes: NelsonNot voting: RubioAFFIRMATION OF FREE PRESS IN AMERICA: The Senate on Aug. 16 unanimously agreed to a measure (S Res 607) con-demning President Trumps attacks on the U.S. news media, stating that the press is not the enemy of the people as Trump avers and affirming the vital and indispensable role that the free press servesŽ to advance the most basic and cherished democratic norms and freedoms of the United States.ŽROLL CALL Rubio Nelson Bay County's Gulf Coast State C ollege slipped from silver to bronze and is ineligible for state investment funding, according to the Florida Department of Education."Our mission is to help students succeed by moving on to a career or by gaining more education. We put stu-dents first in all decisions, and we keep class sizes small to foster student-teacher inter-action," Clemmons stated. "Our highly-qualified faculty provide an excellent academic program. We also work to keep students engaged both inside and outside of the classroom."Clemmons recognized the ACE Lab and Dropout Detec-tive as two programs which helped improve student per-formance. The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) provides free peer tutoring in every subject. Dropout Detective, implemented in 2016-17, helps faculty and advisers monitor student performance.In the 2018-19 year, the state provided $60 million of general revenue for performance funding, with $30 million in institutional fund-ing being distributed across 28 colleges.Chipola plans to continue improving in the perfor-mance evaluation categories by focusing on job placement early on in students' educa-tional careers."We recognize that retention is vital and is con-nected to a major program of study," Clemmons stated.The college implemented a new Quality Enhancement Program this fall, which is geared toward helping students make more informed career choices. Incoming freshman take a co-requisite course with the required ori-entation course which focuses on career choices and majors. FUNDINGFrom Page A1complement a childs day-to-day school work. "Each 4-H activity has an educational component to it," Kent said. "Compared to their non-4-H peers, 4-H youth report better grades, higher levels of academic competence and an elevated level of engage-ment at school."2. Does it teach them how to speak up?Give your child a chance to express him or herself to others. "4-H alumni often say that the public speaking skills they learned in 4-H have helped them throughout their careers, no matter which field they are in," Kent said. 3. Does it include STEM?"One of the goals of 4-H is prepare young people for the workforce, which means introducing them to STEM „ science, technology, engineering and math „ through hands-on projects in areas like horticulture, robotics and embryology," Kent said.4. Does it broaden their horizons?"The members of a 4-H club may not all go to the same school or live in the same neigh-borhood. Meeting people who have different backgrounds from yourself expands your worldview," Kent said.5. Is it a good return on investment?Some programs give you more bang for your buck. "Annual registration for 4-H is $20, and there are scholarships available. That gives youth access to a wide variety of proj-ects and events„everything from aerospace to agriculture. If not for their 4-H membership, they might have to join several other organizations to get all the same opportunities," Kent said.6. Does it help them explore their interests?"Finding a passion teaches youth about delaying gratification and taking pride in their work. Thats something they take with them into their careers," Kent said.7. Does it develop organiza-tion skills?Choose activities that require kids to stay on top of things and plan ahead. "For a project to be successful, 4-H members know they need to stay organized. For instance, you cant raise a prize-winning animal without a plan for how you are going to reach that goal," Kent said. 8. Is it open to everyone?Consider whether the whole family can participate. "4-H is open to both boys and girls ages 5 through 18. There is also collegiate 4-H and adult volun-teering opportunities. Unlike other programs, 4-H is some-thing everyone in the household can be a part of," Kent said.9. Does it introduce kids to mentors?Having adult role models who arent ones parents is an important part of youth devel-opment, Kent said. "Our trained volunteers and Extension agents form a support system for 4-H members. Knowing that another adult cares about you is a big confidence boost and helps kids feel comfortable trying new things." 10. Is it well established?Learn about the history of the program. "4-H has been around for more than 100 years, and its been researched and developed through the U.S. Land Grant university system. In Florida, there are more than 200,000 youth in 4-H, and each of them benefits from being a part this longstanding, well known organization," Kent saidFor more information on 4-H programs in Washing-ton County call Julie Dillard at 850-638-6180 or email her hat juliepj@ufl.edu 4-HFrom Page A1Youth learn poultry care and showmanship skills.

Bare“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett ANOTHER VIEW In a recent discussion with a Major League pitching coach about scouting opposing hitters, I thought I was being flippant when I asked: Do you also chart umpires?Ž His answer surprised me. Yes.Ž As the baseball season grinds on, umpires are taking more liberties with their interpretation of the strike zone. Its as if they are begging Major League Baseball to once and for all give computers responsibility for calling pitches. He favors the low strike,Ž a TV analyst will typically say. Or, He waits a long time to make the call, so hes good with curve balls.Ž And even, He starts with a tight zone but it loosens up as the game goes on.Ž Part of the problem is that unlike, say, the foul lines or the outfield fence, the strike zone varies from one batter to the next. The rule: The strike zone is the area over home plate from the midpoint between a batters shoulders and the top of the uniform pants when the batter is in his stance and prepared to swing at a pitched ball and a point just below the kneecap.Ž When measured electronically on TV, the zone that viewers are accustomed to seeing is an approximation. Even the most sophisticated versions of such pitch tracking require a human to establish its vertical boundaries. Since the zones sides are defined by home plate, pitches there should be easier for umpires to judge uniformly. Yet, some umps crouch behind the catcher in such a way that they miss the outside strike. Or, they are fooled by sweeping curves that appear to fall into, or slide across, the zone. Worse, as the Giants announcer Mike Krukow has said of more than one ump, He makes you prove you can throw strikes before giving you pitches on the corners.Ž Really? Baseballs strike zone has been defined in essentially the same way since the late 1800s. A slight adjustment in 1996 changed the bottom of the zone from the top of the kneesŽ to just below the kneecap.Ž Given the widely differing styles of pants players wear nowadays, getting a truly uniform zone would probably require getting a uniform uniform. An analysis in The Hardball Times confirms that almost every MLB ump calls pitches differently to his right and his left. A study published by the FiveThirtyEight blog reveals that, In extra innings, umpires will vary ball and strike calls in ways that tend to end the game as quickly as possible.Ž The MLB commissioner, Rob Manfred, has said that technology necessary for an electronic strike zone is being quickly developed and is almost at hand. However, it is far from certain that owners and players would sanction its use. Meanwhile, MLB teams receive daily heat chartsŽ showing how each umpire interprets the strike zone. Not all pitchers dwell on the data, but most take it into account before throwing a pitch. It is often said that the best referees in sports are those whose presence seems almost invisible. By personalizing the strike zone, umpires are doing the opposite. More than ever, they seem bent on stealing home. Peter Funt is a syndicated columnist with Cagle Cartoons, writer and speaker. His book, Cautiously Optimistic,Ž is available at Amazon.com and CandidCamera.com.Baseballs no-comfort zone Peter Funt Two years ago, Florida voters passed a state constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana. Conventional wisdom said it would never pass the 60 percent threshold required for inclusion to the state constitution. Conventional wisdom was wrong. Florida voters passed the amendment by more than 72 percent. Its clear Florida backs the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Yet two years later, government continues to do whatever it can to thwart the will of voters. Its not unlike what it has done with two earlier constitutionally mandated funds for affordable housing and land conservation. Though in the latter two cases, funds were quickly enabled and more quickly pilfered by lawmakers. This time around, theft seems irrelevant. The amendment does not fund medical marijuana „ only enable it. Following the amendments success, the legislature hedged its bets the next spring and passed a law making smoking medical marijuana illegal. Whether or not we agree with medical marijuana, cant we agree that the delivery method is inconsequential or, at least, a secondary quandary? If the doctor agrees a patient requires a boost of B-12, does it matter if its taken orally, by infuser, injection or a patch? A recent Circuit Court ruling overturned the law banning smoking of medical pot. The Florida Department of Health immediately appealed that ruling. Who knows how long the issue will be hamstrung in court? And now lawmakers were rebuked again recently by a Tallahassee Circuit Court ruling that the states capŽ on legal marijuana growers runs afoul of the medical marijuana amendment, and more. Judge Charles Dodson wrote, Such limits directly undermine the clear intent of the amendment, which by its language seeks to prevent arbitrary restriction on the number of MMTCs authorized to conduct business in the state.Ž He also wrote that new law is unconstitutional because it requires that marijuana growers cultivate, process and dispense medical marijuana which is a fast track to a monopoly. He also wrote that the law improperly restricts who can and cannot join the ranks of growers. The ruling could give the go-ahead to hundreds of businesses. As is, lawmakers have carefully carved up the state for 14 separate growers. The bidding process was highly competitive and likely rigged. Its a much more streamlined process for lawmakers to seek campaign contributions from 14 mega-growers, than twisting the arms of legions of smaller ones dotting the rural landscape of Florida. Economists say the business will generate more than $2.5 billion in the next decade. High times, indeed, for those on the inside. This ruling, too, will be challenged. The longawaited promise of medical marijuana will continue to spin its wheels for those afflicted „ making millionaires out of the beneficiaries and miscreants out of the benefactors. Legislators want the medical marijuana sweepstakes winners beholding to the House and Senate, not the voters who backed them at the polls. This editorial first appeared in the St. Augustine Record, a sister paper with GateHouse Media. A medical marijuana black holeHalf-cent sales tax is a positive stepDear Editor, As a new member of the Washington County School Board, I was surprised to learn some critical information that impacts the Washington County School District. The districts school mill-age rate has decreased from 5.483 in 2011-2012 to 4.415 in 2017-2018.During the same time period that the millage rate decreased by approximately 1 mill, Washington County property values on which the millage rate is applied dropped from approximately 924 million to 917 million. The decrease in both of these measures resulted in a significant drop in our locally generated funds. This drop in funds is one of the reasons I am supporting the half cent sales tax that will appear on the August 28 ballot. While only a portion of Washington County residents currently pay ad valorem taxes, the half cent sales tax would be a "fair" tax that would allow all consumers who buy products, other than food or medicine, to contribute to the education of our students. Many of the consumers who will pay this tax will be non-county residents who are buying gas, shopping in stores, eating at restaurants, and staying in the motels on I … 10. While no one wants to pay additional taxes, the half cent sales tax will only cost the consumer an additional $5 out of every $1,000 spent. Additionally, the tax is only assessed for purchases up to $5,000. The most a buyer would pay on a single purchase over $5,000 would be $25. All the money raised will stay in Washington County. Florida law specifies that this money can only be used for technology and construction and/ or renovation of instructional facilities. Although Washington County is fortunate to have comfortable and updated school facilities, without the additional revenue from this sales tax, it will be impossible to maintain these facilities in their current state or renovate these facilities to meet the changing instructional needs of our students. Our district will be unable to improve the technology infrastructure, to adequately update classrooms with current instructional technology, to provide new job training courses in a timely manner, or to provide additional safety measures that secure our campus facilities. A child has only one opportunity to learn the building blocks that will define his/her educational achievement. It is imperative for each grade level to have the appropriate curriculum and the technology to support that curriculum. Our high schools and technical college must have the financial resources to provide the academic preparation and job training for todays jobs as well as jobs that will be emerging in the future. Your "yes" vote on the half cent sales tax will be a positive step in ensuring that Washington County students attend schools that prepare them to enter the workplace and/or successfully complete higher education programs. Sincerely yours,Lou Cleveland School Board Member, District 2LETTER TO THE EDITOR

** Washington County News | Wednesday, August 22, 2018 A5 LOCAL & STATELloyd Dunkelberger News Service FlordaiTALLAHASSEE A Leon County circuit judge Monday knocked a proposed education constitutional amendment off the November ballot, saying the wording failed to inform voters of its impact on the creation of charter schools.The proposed amendment, placed on the ballot by the Constitution Revision Commission, would impose eight-year term limits on school board members and would require the promotion of civic literacyŽ in public schools.But the provision that drew a legal challenge from the League of Women Voters of Florida would have allowed the state to operate and control public schools not established by the school board,Ž wording that opponents said would have led to the expansion of charter schools. The proposal was aimed at overturning a 2008 appellate court decision that found the Legislatures creation of a statewide com-mission to authorize charter schools was unconstitutional.The failure to use the term voters would understand, charter schools, as well as the use of a phrase that has no established meaning under Florida law, fails to inform voters of the chief purpose and effect of this proposal,Ž Circuit Judge John Cooper wrote in a 12-page ruling, removing Amendment 8 from the Nov. 6 ballot.Cooper called the challenged provision a sig-nificant changeŽ that was not explained by the Amendment 8 ballot summary, which is wording that voters would see when the go to the polls.The current Constitution and implementing laws pro-vide district school boards the exclusive right to make the initial determination of whether schools, charter or not, are needed and desirable in their counties,Ž Cooper wrote. Without understanding the current role of school boards in approving new schools, voters cannot understand the important change they are making to local democratic control of education.ŽHe also said the ballot mea-sure incorrectly impliesŽ that it is strengthening or maintaining the school boards role instead of weakening it by removing a power.ŽBut the legal fight about Amendment 8 could be far from over, with the expectation that Coopers ruling will be appealed. Erika Donalds, a Constitution Revision Com-mission member who was the key proponent of Amendment 8, called the courts ruling disappointing.ŽDonalds, a Collier County School Board member who leads the group 8isGreat. org, which is promoting the amendment, said the League of Women Voters fundamentally opposes empowering families to choose the education setting that best fits their child.ŽDespite the speculation and bunk theyve spread, I hope voters will be able to make their own decision in November,Ž Donalds said in a statement. It is disgusting how many misrepresenta-tions the opposition is willing to put forth to block stu-dent-centered school choice options.ŽCooper said voters would have had a clearer choiceŽ if the Constitution Revision Commission had advanced the charter-school provision as standalone revision,Ž rather than grouping it with two other constitutional changes. The commission, which meets every 20 years, is not bound by the one-subject mandate that applies to con-stitutional changes advanced by the Legislature or by voter petition.It chose to bundle the three proposals together to increase, in its view, their chances of passage,Ž Cooper wrote. But this court can only permit it to do so if it fully and accurately described all three proposals in the ballot title and descrip-tion. That it failed to do.ŽCooper also found the ballot measure to be affirmatively misleading,Ž since the summary talks about giving the state the power to operate and control schools, but it does not mention authority could be given to other entities, including private companies.He said the measure was conspicuously silent about who or whatŽ would be responsible for schools not established by local school boards.Contrary to the language of the ballot summary, the amendment was intended to permit that power be given to a wide variety of third parties, potentially includ-ing private entities,Ž Cooper wrote.Opponents of the measure praised Coopers decision.Amendment 8 would have used the feel-good language of civic education and term limits to lure voters into voting yes, while wrest-ing local control of schools,Ž Patricia Brigham, president of the League of Women Voters, said in a statement. We were confident that the courts would see through the charade and are thrilled that they agree.ŽAlong with Coopers ruling, Amendment 8 is one of six Constitution Revision Commission ballot proposals facing a separate challenge at the Florida Supreme Court. That lawsuit is asking for the states highest court to remove the amendments from the November ballot, arguing that the commission overstepped its authority by combining multiple constitutional changes into single ballot items.A circuit judge has already ordered the removal of Amendment 13, another com-mission proposal that would ban commercial greyhound racing in Florida. That deci-sion is now being appealed at the state Supreme Court.In total, 13 proposed state constitutional amendments were placed on the Nov. 6 ballot, including the eight advanced by the commission and five advanced by the Leg-islature or through petition drives. Each amendment would require support from at least 60 percent of the voters to be enacted.Judge blocks education ballot proposalNews Service FloridaFlorida has had 62 reported cases of the mosquito-borne Zika virus this year, though it does not have any areas of active transmission, according to numbers posted online by the Florida Depart-ment of Health.

** Washington County News | Wednesday, August 22, 2018 A9 JOBSBy Jeffery MarinoZipRecruiter.comThe wide world of professional sports is obsessed with statistics. If youre a seasoned sports professional interested in becoming a free agent on the job market, or if youre a desk jockey whos always dreamed of getting traded to the sports industry, here are a few stats you may be interested in: € The professional sports industry in North America generated a total revenue of $69.3 billion in 2017. € Gross revenues are expected to grow more than 10 percent by 2020, totaling $76.5 billion. € Growing 5 percent annually in 2017, there were more than 36,000 health and fitness clubs in the U.S., generating a total annual revenue of $25.8 billion. € 36 percent of millennials reported signing up for a gym membership in 2017. € The number of sports and recreation jobs posted to ZipRecruiter. com increased more than 100 percent year-over-year in June. € There are currently more than two job openings for every applicant on ZipRecruiter. com in the sports and recreation industry across the U.S. With enough job opportunity to make anyone feel like a firstround draft pick, landing a job in the sports industry today should be a slam dunk. But unless youre LeBron, its unlikely recruiters are knocking down your door offering eight-figure contracts. So we put together our list of the top 10 sports and recreation job markets in the U.S. We looked at the top 50 metros by population and ranked them based on a weighted average that includes the amount of sports industry job opportunity, cost of living, availability of public transit, walkability and public health. Just for fun, we included the highest-paid athlete in each ranking metro, in case youre curious about where your salary would top-out. The Twin Cities tops our list for good reason. With the Twins (MLB), Vikings (NFL), Timberwolves (NBA) and Wild (NHL), Minneapolis-St. Paul is one of just 13 metros in the U.S. to have a team in all four major sports leagues. Plus, the opportunity level there is absolutely striking, with more than 14 sports jobs available for every applicant. As is the case with all of the cities in our lineup, its not just the major franchises and stadiums scouting for athletically minded talent. Jobs are available in a variety of positions from coaching to training to marketing, from after-school programs to the big leagues. cities for sports jobs TOP 10 The top 10 sports and recreation job markets1.

GODSPEAK: In order to break into the Big 3Ž club, you need more than a lone victory. Maybe Kurt will be the Big 1Ž in November. KENS CALL: Hes getting his roll together at the right time, so its possible. But its not golf „ the Big 3Ž aint looking for a fourth.Who is 2018s next non-winner to win this season? GODSPEAK: Give me Ryan Blaney after Bristols coulda, woulda, shoulda performance. He will come back from his week off with a big chip on his shoulder. KENS CALL: There are some very ripe possibilities out there, but I say it doesnt happen until Jamie McMurray wins Talladega in October. MARTIN TRUEX JR. VS. KYLE BUSCH: Some weeks you go “ shing and get a nibble, and some weeks they jump into the boat. This was pure Big 3Ž on Big 3Ž action when Busch wrecked Truex at Bristol. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Truex will have an extra week to stew about this incident. Truexs girlfriend Sherry Pollex tweeted: Omg I cant believe that just happened. Kyle Busch is a moron.Ž XFINITY WINNER: Bill Elliott REST OF TOP 5: Christopher Bell, Justin Allgaier, Elliott Sadler, Cole Custer FIRST ONE OUT: Austin Cindric DARK HORSE: Jeremy Clements DONT BE SURPRISED IF: NASCAR Hall of Fame driver Elliott joins his son, Chase, as a stock-car, road-course winner this season. Will Kurts rebound stick this time?Well, he turned 40 earlier this month, was remarried early last year, and has capped a good recent run with his win at Bristol. Better yet, its been quite a while since he went over the edge with deeds or words. And now, word is, hes actually a coveted driver again, set to leave Stewart-Haas Racing next season and replace Jamie McMurray in Chip Ganassis No. 1 car. There have been times when we considered Kurts career to be in jeopardy, so this is quite a resurgence. And on the ” ip side ƒ?Theres Martin Truex Jr., who enjoyed his own career rebound at Furniture Row Racing, won a championship, might win another, and may have to leave the team. Same old song: Lack of major sponsorship funding might have Truex shopping for a new ride. Well say it again: The long-employed business model, which remains dependent on corporate funding, needs “ xing, because corporate funding is no longer automatic.„ Ken Willis, ken.willis @news-jrnl.com1.

** B2 Wednesday, August 22, 2018 | Washington County News BUSINESSBy Alex VeigaThe Associated PressRetailers and airlines helped lift U.S. stocks broadly higher Monday, extending the markets gains from last week. Consumer-focused companies and industrial stocks grabbed most of the gains. Banks and health care stocks also rose. Energy companies climbed along with the price of U.S. crude oil.Technology companies lagged the broader market, weighing down the Nasdaq composite index for much of the day.The markets latest gains, while modest, added to what has been a mostly solid summer for stocks. The S&P 500, the mar-kets benchmark index, has posted a weekly gain in six of the past seven weeks. Stocks got off to a mixed start as investors weighed the latest corporate earn-ings and deal news.Since last week investors have been feeling cautiously optimistic about the prospects for an end to the trade dispute between the U.S. and China, which has led to costly, dueling tariffs between the two nations and caused uncertainty in the markets. Hopes rose late last week on news that China will send an envoy to Washington this month to discuss a way out of the standoff before President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping meet in November.Is there motivation to get it resolved before November? Sure, but its not going to be resolved any time soon,Ž said Tom Martin, senior portfolio manager with Globalt Investments. Its going to continue to be an overhang and theres going to be a lot of posturing before any real deals are reached.ŽOn Monday, investors bid up shares in consumer-focused companies, with several big department store chains leading the way. Macys was the biggest gainer in the S&P 500, vaulting 6.1 percent to $38.21. Kohls picked up 3.2 percent to $78.85, while Nordstrom rose 4 percent to $61.56. Gap gained 2.8 percent to $32.17.Airlines climbed as part of a broader rise in industrial sector stocks. American Airlines Group jumped 5.8 percent to $39.99, while United Con-tinental gained 3.9 percent to $85.22.

It came from realizing that socks were the No. 1 clothing item requested by the homeless. The company, which donates a pair of socks for every pair it sells, just generated its first profit in 2016 and hit nearly $50 million in sales last year. Now, its mapping out an expansion plan beyond socks. The Associated PressWHAT TO WATCH FOR THIS WEEK€ On Wednesday, Target reports quarterly “ nancial results before the market open.By Bernard CondonThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ The bull market in U.S. stocks is about to become the longest in history.If stocks dont drop significantly by the close of trading Wednesday, the bull market that began in March 2009 will have lasted nine years, five months and 13 days, a record that few would have predicted when the market struggled to find its footing after a 50 percent plunge during the financial crisis.The long rally has added trillions of dollars to household wealth, helping the economy, and stands as a testament to the ability of large U.S. companies to squeeze out profits in tough times and confidence among investors as they shrugged off repeated crises and kept buying.There was no manic trading, there was no panic buying or selling,Ž said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer of Cresset Wealth Advisors. Its been pretty steady.ŽThe question now is when the rally will end. The Federal Reserve is undoing many of the stimulative measures that supported the market, including keeping interest rates near zero. There are also mounting threats to global trade that have unsettled investors.For such an enduring bull market, it shares little of the hallmarks of prior rallies.Unlike earlier rallies, individual investors have largely sat out after getting burned by two crashes in less than a decade. Trading has been lackluster, with few shares exchanging hands each day. Private companies have shown little enthusiasm, too, with fewer selling stock in initial public offerings than in previous bull runs.Yet this bull market has been remarkably resilient. After several blows that might have killed off a less robust rally „ fears of a euro-zone collapse, plunging oil prices, a U.S. credit downgrade, President Donald Trumps trade fights „ investors soon returned to buying, avoiding a 20 percent drop in stocks that by common definition marks the end of bull markets.I dont think anyone could have predicted the length and strength of this bull market,Ž said David Lebovitz, a global market strate-gist at JPMorgan Asset Management.One of the markets biggest winners in recent years, Facebook, wasnt even publicly traded when the bull market began. Facebooks huge run-up of more than 350 percent since going public in 2012, Apples steady march to $1 tril-lion in value, and huge gains by other tech companies like Netflix have helped push the broader market higher.Since the rally officially began on March 9, 2009, the Standard and Poors 500 has risen 321 percent. In the 1990s bull market, the current record holder for the longest, stocks rose 417 percent.From the start, the Federal Reserve was a big force pushing mar-kets higher. It slashed short-term borrowing rates to zero, then began buying trillions of dollars of bonds to push longer-term rates down, too. Investors frustrated with tiny interest payments on bonds felt they had no alternative but to pile into stocks.Companies moved fast to adapt to the post-financial-crisis world of sluggish U.S. growth.They slashed costs and kept wage growth low, squeezing profits out of barely grow-ing sales. They bought back huge amounts of their own stock and expanded their sales overseas, particularly to Chinas booming economy. Profit margins reached record levels, as wages sunk to record lows as mea-sured against the size of economy.What people missed was how quickly U.S. corporations were restructuring and right-sizing themselves to regain profitability,Ž said money manager James Abate, who publicly urged investors to start buying stocks in early 2009 when most were dumping them. It was really a catalyst for turning things around.ŽChinas surging growth helped the market, too. Its boom drove up the price of oil and other com-modities, helping to lift stocks of U.S. natural resource companies „ for a while at least.Then came a down-grade of the U.S. credit rating in August 2011, which caused stocks to swoon, and 2013 brought another fall as Fed Chairman Ben Ber-nanke talked of easing off stimulus policies. In the second half 2014, oil plunged 50 percent, which rattled investors again.Profits started falling the next year, but investors kept their nerve and didnt sell and waited for profits to rise again. In 2016, stocks gained 10 percent then jumped 19 percent the next year. Since the start of 2018, they have risen 6.6 percent, boosted by surging profits fol-lowing the massive cut in corporate tax rates earlier this year.Raging bullBorn out of the nancial crisis, bull market nears a record In this Nov. 27, 2009, photo, traders move about the ” oor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly before the opening bell. If stocks dont drop signi“ cantly by the close of trading Wednesday, the bull market will have lasted nine years, “ ve months and 13 days, a record. [PETER MORGAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

A key factor in school success is making smart and healthy choices a habit in the household, said Dr. Mary Gavin, a pediatrician and senior medical editor at KidsHealth.org. She recommends a routine each day that includes time for: -A healthy breakfast.-Physical activity and exercise after school, so that kids have a chance to let off steam before settling down to do homework. -Homework.-A regular bedtime that allows for enough sleep depending on a childs age and needs. Plan meals aheadThe change in schedule doesnt just affect kids.Planning ahead is really the key to getting meals on the table during the busy back-to-school season,Ž Gavin said. Plan your meals before the start of the week so that you know whats for dinner each night. Grocery -shop for everything on your list the weekend before.ŽPrepping food on the weekend can help save time during the busy week.Wash salad greens and cut up veggies and fruit. Store healthy snacks or lunch items like cheese and crackers in small containers or indi-vidual baggies so that all the kids have to do is grab and go,Ž Gavin said. Communicate with teachersA parent is a childs best advocate. So its important for parents to meet with teachers at the beginning of the school year to share important information about their child,Ž Gavin said. Tell teachers about any health problems, food allergies or special needs that your child has, especially those that may affect learning.ŽIf your child needs spe-cial accommodations, parents should set those up for a child ahead of time.For example, some kids with vision prob-lems need to sit closer to the chalkboard, others may need more time for tests. If your child needs accommodations such as these, you may need to request a 504 Plan. If your child is struggling in school, talk to your teacher about an educa-tional evaluation,Ž Gavin said.Parents can work with educators to design cus-tomized 504 educational plans that legally ensure students with physical or mental impairments are treated fairly at school.If you need help explaining a childs situ-ation, KidsHealth.org has Special Needs Factsheets for educators that explain how certain health prob-lems may affect learning.These are great for parents to give to teach-ers. We have many health conditions including asthma, diabetes, ADHD, food allergies,Ž Gavin said.Visit kidshealth.org/en/parents/classroom/ factsheet. Share anything about your childs personality that you think would be helpful to know, such as your childs preferred learning style, individual strengths or challenges. Also, ask the teacher about expectations for the class so that you can support and reinforce those messages at home,Ž Gavin said.Healthy habits for a great school yearA parent is a childs best advocate.

Dedicated in 1886, it is our countrys power symbol of welcome and refuge, an enduring testament to the grace and mercy that is the United States. To the newly arrived, the Statue of Liberty is reassurance: Breathe free, work in safety and live in justice. Lately, immigrants are painted as villains, scapegoated as criminals. Asylum seekers escaping torture and persecution are turned away. Mothers are torn from children, as if their undocumented status makes their anguish less. Yet, the Statue of Liberty is a potent reminder of our highest selves. The French really know how to build monuments. While in Bordeaux, I discovered a secret language abounds in their statues, public artwork and building facades. A guide helped me to decode the majestic Girondins Monument located in Place des Quinconces. This masterpiece honors Girondins revolutionaries who resisted the French governments reign of terror, which ended in 1793. The monument was erected in 1893, 100 years later, as a reminder that the will of the common people triumphed over an evil government. Later in 1942, the Nazis ordered the bronze horses to be melted down for German armaments, but French resistance hid the statues underground. After the war, the monument was re-erected in its entirety. Like our Statue of Liberty, the Girondins Monument speaks a resonant language. High atop a column, a winged woman holds broken chains. She is Liberty, breaking free of oppression. At the base are three seated bronze figures. Higher in the center, a woman in armor holds aloft a staff with a hand at its tip. She is Justice. On the left, a muscular Statue of Liberty: In 100 years, will it still mean the same?By Shane LooperThe thoughts that enter a persons consciousness over a period of months, years and decades will have a determinative effect on the character of that person and the quality of life he or she experiences. In other words, what a person thinks about will largely determine the kind of person he or she becomes. If this is true (and, as far as I know, no one denies it), what a person thinks about is one of the most important things about him or her. The choice to allow a train of thought to travel through ones mind or to set a train of thought in motion is made countless times each day and is, therefore, common. Yet, precisely because that choice is made countless times a day, it determines ones identity and is, therefore, critical. It is vital for health and wellbeing that a person take control of, and responsibility for, his or her own thoughts. Yet many people do not know this is even possible. They are under the impression that thoughts originate outside themselves and, as such, are uncontrollable. They go wherever the most recent impulse takes them: into a success or revenge fantasy, or a replay of yesterdays argument at work, or last nights Survivor episode. They dont realize they are responsible for their thoughts and in control of them. Thats one thought that never enters their minds.

On the right, a helmeted woman appears serene, steadfast and watching. She symbolizes safety. For a society to flourish, three elements must be in place for all: Justice, work and safety. In front of those figures, bronze horses with dragon tails churn the waters with fury, charging toward three men fallen below a lower rock wall, scrambling to escape. These figures symbolize the French government during the time of the revolution. One holds a mask, and he represents lies and deception. The man in the middle has pig ears, and symbolizes excess, selfish interests, and vice. The man on the right cowers hiding his eyes. His name is Ignorance. For a long time, I studied the monument, musing on symbolism newly revealed by our guide. What this monument says about the triumph of their ideals. Deception, greed, and ignorance are poisonous agents of division. These are struggles that plague our country today. I hope our own Statue of Liberty will stand, 100 years later, to symbolize what America should always be „ a light for all to live and work in safety within a just society no matter where you come from. Email Suzette Martinez Standring at suzmar@comcast.net. MARTINEZFrom Page B4her thoughts is one of the most important moments in a persons life. It makes positive change possible. It resets the future. It sets the stage for personal and spiritual growth. Many people allow thoughts to run unsupervised through their minds. Those thoughts link together into a train of thought … often a runaway train … and they feel helpless to stop it. But people can, and must, take control of the trains of thought that pass through their minds. They have the power to refuse them admittance, direct them when they are admitted, and stop them when they are going in the wrong direction. A different analogy might be helpful. Imagine that thoughts travel along something like riverways or canals. The riverways … or neural pathways … are already in place by the time a person is mature enough to exercise control over them. Yet it is possible to redirect riverbeds or dig new canals … neural pathways … upon which ones thoughts can travel. It is possible, but it takes significant effort. One of the great engineering feats in U. S. history was the redirection of the Chicago River. In the early part of the twentieth century, it flowed into Lake Michigan, which provided Chicago with drinking water. Because the river was contaminated with human and industrial waste, drinking water was polluted, and tens of thousands of people died from typhoid, cholera, and dysentery. The flow of the river was reversed by digging a system of canals, channeled through large sewage treatment plants, then into the Des Plaines River, the Mississippi, and eventually the Gulf of Mexico. Something similar happens with us. Significant amounts of toxic thoughts are being dumped into our minds on a regular basis. We must prevent such thoughts from entering our stream of consciousness and polluting our minds. This means governing what we watch, read, and hear. TV, movies, books, and Facebook pages that continually dump toxic ideas must be shut off. Even if we do this, some toxic thinking will remain, and more will enter our minds unbidden. So, we must take control of the thoughts we already have and redirect them. One way of doing this … a sewage treatment plant of sorts … is to routinely confess to God (and, as appropriate, to another person) toxic thoughts of pride, vengeance, fear, and sexual immorality. Carving new riverbeds through which our thoughts can flow takes almost constant vigilance at first. It requires the painful work of confession. It depends on finding sources of clean and healthy thoughts: books, movies, websites, and people who introduce true and refreshing ideas to the mind. But as this hard work is done, the control of ones thoughts becomes more manageable and life becomes healthier and more enjoyable.

Spencer, and star running back Kelvin Dean, the Tigers will have to prove them wrong again if theyre to make a return to the postseason.

4 Wednesday, August 22, 2018 | PREP FOOTBALLThe departure of Dean, who transferred to Rickards after rushing for 1,836 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2017, hits especially hard, but Chipley coach Blake Wilson said that if last season taught his team anything, its that success depends on much more than one man. We learned that it takes a team,Ž he said. Its not just about me. It takes everybody to be successful. You have to concentrate on team goals and not individual goals, and if you work hard then good things will happen.Ž The Tigers do return some key players that helped drive last years playoff run, with senior fullback Andrew Lawton back after rushing for 1,129 yards and nine touchdowns, while senior linebacker Zac Wilson returns to lead the defense after a junior campaign in which he posted a team-best 141 tackles. Junior running back Jordan Speed is the secondleading returning rusher after gaining 207 yards with two touchdowns last season. Ethan Justice, Steven Sanders, and Jamison Spencer give the Tigers three returning starters on the offensive line and Zac Wilson will resume his role as the teams starting tight end. Sophomore Isaac Berry looks to have the inside track at taking over for Cook at quarterback. The Chipley defense has a chance to be stingy this season with the return of Wilson at linebacker surrounded by experienced defenders like Lawton at linebacker, Speed in the secondary, Jamison Spencer at defensive end, and Justice and Sanders at defensive tackle. Chipley made the playoffs as the third seed out of four teams in Region 1-1A, though the Tigers only need to be one of the top six teams in the region to be back in the postseason this year after the FHSAA expanded the field by two. Despite the loss of Dean, Coach Wilson said theres no reason his team cant get back in the playoffs in 2018. I think anybody can beat anybody on any given Friday, to tell you the truth,Ž he said. I feel like (the region) is going to be very competitive. Weve just got to be ready to play hard and compete every week.Ž FAST FACTSAll-State running back Kelvin Dean, who was named 1A Offensive Player of the Year by FloridaHSFootball. com after posting 2,100 all-purpose yards and 26 touchdowns for Chipley in 2017, transferred to Rickards CHIPLEYContinued from page 4

Getting back there in 2018, however, will be a tall task for a team that lost literally 99 percent of its offensive production from last season.See HORNETS, PAGE 6

PAGE 28

Long-time assistant coach Chris Obert takes the helm for the Hornets after the departure of former coach Tyler Addison and inherits a squad that must replace a threeyear starting quarterback in Cameron Brooks and nearly 2,000 yards worth of rushing between Dominique Pittman and Jimmy Price, as well as top receiver Amari Banks and top tackler Austin Livingston. Theres going to be a lot of new faces out there,Ž Obert said. And where were not necessarily young, weve got a little age but not a lot of experience. It will be a little bit of a learning process for them. Hopefully theyll catch on quick, continue to work hard and find a way to do the little things to help us be successful.Ž Replacing Brooks at quarterback will be senior Dalvin Barnes, who worked primarily as a wide receiver last season and attempted just one pass for 6 yards while rushing twice for 41 yards. Hell have big shoes to fill in Brooks, who accounted for more than 2,000 total yards of offense and 27 touchdowns in 2017, but Obert said he has the tools to be a productive quarterback in his own right. Dalvin has done a good job of leading for us,Ž he said. Hes throwing the ball pretty well and well probably have to put it in the air a little bit more than we have just because of some of the losses weve had. But he can throw it well, has a good handle on what were trying to do, and is also a threat with his legs.Ž The Hornets will also be in search of some new threats running and catching the football, with juniors Jalen Redding, Cody Foran, and Isaac Brincefield battling for carries in the backfield and seniors Eriq Hendricks and Cody Shores lining up at wide receiver along with junior Quidarius Henderson and sophomore Logan Pumphrey. The faces are a bit more familiar in the trenches, as Tyrus Dudley, Payton Melvin, and Daniel Malloy give the Hornets three returning starters on the offensive line. Tyrus is one of the better players in the area, in my opinion, and (Melvin) is a smart, big-bodied kid back starting at center for the third year and is a good player for us. Daniel Malloy is also a very solid player,Ž Obert said. Those three have been through the wars. Weve just got to find some people to help them up there.Ž Dudley also helps anchor the defense from the defensive tackle position, with Barnes, Hendricks, and Shores bringing some experience to the secondary for a defensive unit that lacks much experience otherwise. Despite the number of unanswered questions the Hornets take into the year, Obert said the goal remains the same and thats to make the playoffs. Depth remains a concern, as is usually the case for 1A teams, and with a dearth of experienced players on the roster, its perhaps an even bigger concern for the Hornets. In our place youre never going to have a huge number of players to go out and compete with every night,Ž Obert said. We do have a good group, but its like it always is in that if a few guys go down you can go from having a little bit of depth to being really thin really fast. The biggest thing for us is being healthy and gaining some game experience every week so that hopefully by midseason experience wont be an issue for us anymore.Ž Theres going to be a lot of new faces out there. Hopefully theyll catch on quick, continue to work hard and nd a way to do the little things to help us be successful.ŽChris Obert, Coach HORNETSContinued from page 5 6 Wednesday, August 22, 2018 | PREP FOOTBALL FAST FACTSOf Cottondales 4,314 yards of total offensive from the 2017, the Hornets returning players account for just 47 yards.

PAGE 30

Roberts, a former Bay High assistant, took over the Graceville head job in March with the task of turning around a Tigers team that went 1-8 in 2017 before losing its top playmaker to graduation, as well as its starting quarterback and two of its biggest and best linemen to transfers. Graceville does have some athletic playmakers back like senior Savoric Williams and sophomore Damion Robinson along with senior linebacker and defensive anchor Joseph Claiborne. Both sides of the ball will also be bolstered by the return of sophomore running back/ linebacker Xavian Sorey, who missed almost all of last season with a foot injury after rushing for 345 yards and three touchdowns as an eighth-grader in 2016. But Roberts cautions that the Tigers are still early in the process of getting the program back on track and that there is still much work to be done. That bad season that they had, it didnt occur overnight, and were not going to get it turned around overnight either,Ž he said. One thing were preaching to the kids is that the next play is the most important play because its next. Forget about what happened in the past. Just move on and be better today than you were yesterday and be better tomorrow than you were today.Ž The Tigers have some major holes to fill with the graduation of star receiver Cameron McClain and the transfers of quarterback Sage Ennis to Lincoln, lineman Austin Angerbrandt to Vernon, and lineman Gabe Elrod to Daleville (Alabama). But Claiborne returns as a two-way force after notching 98 tackles as a linebacker in 2017 while rushing for 529 yards and four touchdowns. Williams and Robinson each had just shy of 300 yards receiving last season, though Williams will move to quarterback. The return of Sorey to the lineup, however, has the potential to be a gamechanger for the Tigers. A high Division-I prospect at 6-foot3, 215 pounds, Sorey has already been offered by the University of Florida and UCF. Hes a specimen,Ž Roberts said of Sorey. Hes a hardworking kid, a great kid. Hes got a million dollar smile. People just tend to gravitate toward him. Hell obviously be one of our main guys at running back and linebacker.Ž With Sorey in the backfield with the 5-11, 210-pound Claiborne running inside and the speedy duo of Williams and Robinson threatening the edge, the Tigers could have a potent rushing attack if they find consistency on the offensive line led by experienced trio Kyreese Watford, Jarell Carpenter and Demica Myrick. As with most 1A schools, the majority of the Tigers offensive standouts will also play defense, with senior outside linebacker/defensive end Darieon Perry and senior cornerback Cedric Williams players Roberts said could be primed for big seasons as well. Roberts said he didnt have a specific number in mind for how many wins would constitute a successful season for Graceville in 2018, but that he believed the Tigers could very well get back into the playoff hunt. We just want to go into the fourth quarter of every game and have a chance,Ž he said. Were not that far off. The kids are believing and the coaches are working hard. I think weve got a good plan on offense and defense and as long as we do a good job of eliminating turnovers and penalties, well have a chance.Ž 8 Wednesday, August 22, 2018 | PREP FOOTBALL FAST FACTSGraceville plays nine games this season, including its preseason kickoff classic against Port St. Joe, against teams that made the playoffs in 2017.

Holmes County is coming off a 7-4 season that ended in a heartbreaking 30-29 overtime loss to Chipley in the first round of the Region 1-1A playoffs. The Blue Devils lost nearly 85 percent of their rushing offense along with their top three tacklers on defense to graduation, but experience at quarterback and on the offensive and defensive lines provides hope for another playoff run. The Blue Devils who did return had to brush off one of the most painful playoff losses in recent memory and are using it as motivation to get even further in the postseason this year. Its just putting our nose back to the grindstone and getting back after it,Ž Womble said. Losing that game by one point in overtime, those are the kinds of losses that are hard to swallow. You start looking at it like maybe the difference in one rep in the weight room was worth one point in that football game. Its a really bitter pill to swallow in the moment, but it served as motivation in the offseason to take that next step. Thats really the big message to my seniors this year. This is my first four-year class, so are you going to be the ones that go backwards or are you going to keep pushing it forward?Ž While 1,000-yard rusher Michael Paul and his backfield mates Kevin Martinez and Ray Powell are gone, starting quarterback Tyler Lee returns after passing for 646 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2017. Lee will be asked to do more through the air this season and hell have an experienced offensive line in front of him led by returning starters Bailey Rich, Graften Harcus, Jamin Marks, and Wallace Bailey. Zaveion Matthews, Bubba Duncan, Darrell Powell, and Gage Long will all be given opportunities to make plays running and catching the football, but its the experience of the guys up front that Womble said gives the offense a chance to keep humming in 2018. I think its huge,Ž he said. Those guys know what to do and it gives the younger guys more time to figure things out. A lot of what makes (skill players) good is that Godgiven ability, but theres still a difference between Thursday night and Friday night in terms of the speed, size, and the skill level. If they have bigger holes to run through it gives those young guys a chance to be more comfortable and not be afraid to make mistakes.Ž Michael Hull, Juwan Shack, and Martinez were the leaders of the defense last season, though the Blue Devils do return some talented defenders such as defensive linemen Zion Glass and Andrew Guyonn, defensive backs Matthews and Darrell Powell, and linebacker Jayden Mathis. Despite the personnel losses, Womble said his team definitely has enough to make it back to the playoffs. We graduated some fantastic football players that contributed a lot, but thats no excuse and its no reason for our expectations to be any lower,Ž he said. We just keep pushing forward and working hard to take those next steps. We want to be in that same breath as teams like Baker, Blountstown, and Port St. Joe. Were not quite there yet. Weve still got some work to do.Ž 10 Wednesday, August 22, 2018 | PREP FOOTBALL HOLMESContinued from page 9 FAST FACTSHolmes County is looking to make the state playoffs in consecutive seasons for the “ rst time since doing it in 2011 and 2012.

VERNON YELLOWJACKETSLOCKED, LOADED By Dustin Kent | The News HeraldVERNON „Vernon came about as close to making the playoffs as a team can come without actually making it in 2017, with Jay jumping the Yellowjackets for the fourth and final spot in Region 1-1A in the final week of the season by a mere two-tenths of a point.

With the amount of talent that the Yellowjackets bring into the 2018 season, there may be no need to sweat out the standings late in the year. Despite losing its top two rushers, its top receiver, and top tackler from a season ago, Vernon sports a deep and talented roster thanks in part to a bevy of transfers from Panhandle schools. Four transfers from Walton „ Nick and Nikko Campbell, and Keane and Elijah Neal „ came over along with Austin Angerbandt from Graceville, but its former Freeport running back Kwan Powell who could make the biggest impact for the Yellowjackets. Just a sophomore, Powell rushed for 1,695 yards and 19 touchdowns as a freshman and added 14 receptions for 258 yards and four more touchdowns. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound back is a high Division-I prospect who picked up an offer from Florida State in June. Kwan definitely gives us a gamechanger,Ž Vernon coach Gerald Tranquille said. Hes a playmaker. I felt going into the year that we would have a stronger team with more depth, but we were lacking that playmaker and in steps Kwan. I think hell be that homerun hitter for us.Ž Powell isnt the only playmaker for Vernon, however. Sophomore quarterback Dyvion Bush is back after starting the second half of 2017 as a freshman, and speedy receiver Christian Proctor returns for his senior year after suffering a season-ending injury early last year. Proctor combines with Elijah Neal to give the Yellowjackets a pair of vertical threats on the outside. The defense also boasts a wealth of talent and experience, as senior linebacker Demetreious Walston returns after tallying 113 tackles in 2017 with junior defensive back Tyler Watford and junior linebacker Will Dempsey back after posting 92 and 89 tackles respectively. Nikko Campbell had over 100 tackles last season at linebacker for Walton, while Nick Campbell at 235 pounds, Angerbandt at 265, and starting noseguard Joseph Jenkins at 290 give Vernon an imposing defensive front. Powell will do double duty as a free safety after posting 44 tackles with three interceptions last season for Freeport. While a rash of transfers has the potential to create tension with incumbent players fighting for playing time, Tranquille said that hasnt been an issue with this group. A lot of the kids that have come in grew up playing ball either with or against a lot of the guys we already have,Ž he said. The biggest thing is getting them to buy in to our culture and chemistry. They want to be on a winning team and saw the potential we had here. Theyre all talented, but getting the chemistry right with guys coming in this late is everything.Ž As the level of talent on both sides of the ball for the Yellowjackets has risen, so have expectations around the program. Tranquille said its not something he or his players are shying away from. One of the questions weve asked our guys is to set one goal for the year and pretty much the consensus goal for us is RTS, as we call it, or the road to state,Ž he said. Thats our expectation and thats the way Im pushing them. I want them to stay humble, continue to work, and everything else will take care of itself. We feel like with what weve got back and whats coming in that we have a shot at it, but we know nothing will be given to us and well get everybodys A game. Well be prepared for it and well work like were the underdog.Ž 12 Wednesday, August 22, 2018 | PREP FOOTBALL FAST FACTSVernon has doubled its coaching staff from four in 2017 to eight this year with the additions of former Freeport head coach Jim Anderson, Wesley Adkison, Ryan Malloy and Andrew Brown.
