The 485-acre tract of land is located south of Interstate 10 and would serve the city for many years to come, and will help with development south of the 77 corridor.If the funding would become available, the city would be in a position to close the three current sprayfields in use and would also allow the county to benefit from the growth south of Chipley.The commission approved phase II of the Emerald Coast Subdivision project where there are currently seven existing lots and seven more have been added to the subdivision.The Emerald Subdivision site is a two-lane county road located along the 7.9-acre tract where the existing lots are to be developed as single family homes. The newly approved plat will be used for the same purposes. The initial lots were approved in November 2017 with five lots having already been sold for development.BOCC applies for grants, approves subdivisionSee GRANTS, A2 See ADOPT, A2By Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comCHIPLEY In addition to tailgating foods such as chicken wings, cheese sticks, burgers and pizza, football fans will get brought into the red zone when watching their favorite teams score on seven wall-mounted flat-screen TVs at KC's Pizza & Grill.Not new to the area, but with new owners and new rules on alcohol sales the restau-rant was bustling with chatter from groups of customers that streamed in Thursday late afternoon.ON TAPDowntown anctipates impact from alcohol rulesChristian Roper dines Thursday evening with her granddaughter Emelia Epley, 3, stepdaughter Jemma Roper, 5, (across the table, back to front) daughter Tayler Epley, granddaughter Adalynn Epley, 1, and mother-in-law Opal Mann, all from Bonifay, at KCs Pizza & Grill.

ADOPTFrom Page A1 "It's amazing the amount of revenue its been generating in the four hours a night from 4 to 9 p.m. It's standing room only," said owner Scott Joyner, a Chipley native, who owns the business with his wife Kimberly."I think Chipley is miss-ing an opportunity like this and we're glad to be here for it," he added. "And we're going to try to hang on to it as long as we can."The Joyners purchased the restaurant, which has a seating capacity of 150 and is located at 684 Sev-enth St., back in January. It was also in January that the Joyners asked City of Chipley about alcohol limitations. And, based on the feedback, they added a partitioned section in their remodeling plans that included booths, tables and bar-style seat-ing. On the far end stands a multi-tap commercial beer refrigerator."In anticipation of the alcohol ordinance passing, we felt we were very vocal in that since Janu-ary and seen where it was going and went ahead rolled the dice and purchased this stuff," Joyner said. "We're going to offer draft," he said, noting the restaurant will also serve bottled beer and low alco-hol content wines.The restaurant has applied for its beer and wine license and expects approval soon.Inquiries to City of Chi-pley to find out how many businesses have submitted requests to sell alcohol since the new amended ordinance was approved were not successful by time of press."Hopefully it pays divi-dends, but it's just going to be an added benefit not really what we're structured for," Joyner added. "We want to sell food and have that as a perk to go with it."With beer, in essence, on the backburner for the family's vision of what the eatery brings to the down-town table, the restaurant includes a diverse menu of appetizers, pizzas, subs and burgers, such as the signature Burnin' Vernon Burger from the original KC's, a range of desserts including Kimberly Joyner's in-house made tiramisu.KC's sits just across the train tracks from a place of worship, and another around the corner. Prior to the unanimous approval of the amended alcohol ordi-nance on Aug. 14, beer and wine could not be on the menu at any restaurant in downtown Chipley.The newly adopted and amended ordinance nixes the council's previous decision to restrict alcohol sales at restaurants from midnight to 7 a.m. daily and prohibit it on Sunday; instead, loosens that restriction to midnight to 4 a.m. daily, seven days a week. It also incorporates the county's distance rules which are no sale of alcohol within 500 feet of a church, public park, residence and school, and restricts alcohol sales by bottle clubs to 1,000 feet from any church, public park, residence or school."We wanted to allow restaurants to sell alco-hol products," said Mayor John Sasser. "And this is what we've done with this ordinance."However, the sale of regular wines which generally range in alcohol content from 9 to 14 per-cent, is prohibited. Florida Statute 568, titled Intoxi-cating Liquors in Counties Where Prohibited, prohibits the sale of alcohol products including liquor, wine or beer, that contain more than 6.243 percent of alcohol by volume.Washington County falls under this "dry" rule."The county is still dry as it ever was," said Wash-ington County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Tray Hawkins. "All this change does is allow businesses to follow state guidelines in regards to distance from schools, churches and parks."Hawkins said he is a proponent of the stream-lining of city and county ordinances, particularly when it involves economic growth."I think it's important for all county and city ordinances to be aligned," he said. "It makes it tough for businesses to know which rules apply to what parts of the county if the two entities have conflict-ing policies."We're all in this together and to do the same thing," Hawkins con-cluded. "And that's to build Washington County to a bigger and brighter future."Thursday night, that endeavor was taking place with much gusto at KC's Pizza & Grill.Five-year-old Jemma Roper and three-yearold Emelia Epley sat in a booth in the backend of the regular seating area and picked away at their mac-n-cheese and sweet potato fries."This one's a whole lot more quiet, and more upscale," said Jemma's stepmother Christian Roper, who was speaking in regards to the restau-rant's atmosphere under its previous owners. "And the food is really good."It was the family's first dining experience at the new KC's, but, Roper said, it won't be the last.

Bare“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Even in an era of alternative facts,Ž when truth isnt truth,Ž former Florida Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottcamps false claim about the 2010 BP oil spill was shocking. The spill didnt even reach the shores of Florida,Ž Kottcamp recently told a room full of reporters in Tallahassee, the Florida Phoenix news site reported. Kottcamp, who co-chairs a new group that seeks expanded offshore oil exploration, also said tarballs are naturally occurring.Ž Those who lived through the 152-day BP oil spill, especially residents and owners of businesses on Floridas Panhandle, know the truth. They saw the spill cause pellets of oil to wash up for miles on Pensacolas beaches and elsewhere, requiring workers to shovel up the mess for months on end and devastating the tourism industry there. Kottcamps group, Explore Offshore Florida, is counting on the public to forget or doubt that experience. Backed by the American Petroleum Institute and Florida Petroleum Council, the group is pushing to allow oil and gas drilling closer to Floridas coast. They frame their cause as only seeking to allow oil exploration rather than drilling, as if one wouldnt likely lead to the other. They downplay the risks to Floridas natural environment and economy, despite residents seeing them firsthand in 2010. For newcomers or residents with short memories, the ongoing crisis involving red tide and blue-green algae blooms in South Florida demonstrates the need to better protect our states environment. It also shows the need to be dubious when Florida politicians, current or former, tell the public not to worry about environmental threats. In January, the Trump administration announced plans to open previously protected parts of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean to oil and gas drilling. But Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke flew to Tallahassee to announce Florida was exempt, paying a political favor to Gov. Rick Scott by helping his bid to be elected to the U.S. Senate. Scott supported expanded offshore oil drilling when he first ran for office in 2010, but, as with other environmental issues, hes changed his position to score political points. He has major personal investments in energy companies and his political action committee has received at least $880,000 in contributions from oil, gas and energy executives, as the Tampa Bay Times reported, so one wonders whether Scott will maintain his newfound opposition to drilling. A healthy dose of skepticism is necessary given Scotts ties to President Donald Trump, whose administration has promoted fossil-fuel use as it rolls back environmental regulations. Whether through expanding oil drilling, freezing fuel-economy standards for vehicles or scrapping regulations of coal-fired power plants, Trump and his allies are taking actions that increase the carbon emissions that cause climate change. Even as the costs of solar power and other renewable energy have declined, fossil-fuel executives are trying to maintain public support for dirty energy sources. Dont buy it when Kottcamp and other oilindustry advocates spew alternative facts about the drilling that has already befouled Floridas environment and shouldnt be allowed to do so again. This editorial first appeared in the Gainesville Sun, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Alternative facts about the BP oil spill ANOTHER VIEW Florida Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency over an environmental disaster he insists has nothing to do with him. Its true red tide „ an evilsmelling algae bloom now fouling the precious beaches along Floridas southwestern coast „ is an oft-repeated natural phenomenon. Thousands of dead tarpons, manatees, sea turtles and other large creatures floating offshore and onto beaches, though a jarring sight, has happened before. But red tide this year, its crazy. And so are the other algae, the freshwater blue-green slime blooming every summer in Lake Okeechobee. This year, the toxic algae have been sent coursing through Floridas estuaries to both coasts. On the Treasure Coast, for example, people whove made contactŽ with the St. Lucie River have been going to emergency rooms, complaining of nausea and shortness of breath. Floridas environment is fragile. Recognizing the enormous importance of natural beauty to the states economy, governors „ both Republican and Democratic „ have at least attempted to address the ecological threats. Not Scott. Hes the governor who, in 2011, slashed funding for Floridas water management districts by $700 million. It was about cutting property taxes. As Scott bragged in a 2011 press release, the tax cut allows families and business to use more of their hard-earned money in the way they see best.Ž And now they can use their hard-earned money to bail out their failing restaurants, fishing boats and other tourism-related businesses now bereft of customers. They can spend it on breathing masks and beach vacations in New England. Im not sure how lower taxes fit into selling real estate during a biblical-sized plague attacking every one of the five senses, but they might help. What else did Scott do? He cut his budget requests for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection year after year. He repealed a law requiring septic tank inspections, important for reducing water pollution. He rolled back other regulations and decimated the environmental enforcement staff. Heavy rains this year have forced more of the freshwater algae to be flushed from Lake Okeechobee into the estuaries. Fertilizer pollution from sugar farms, citrus groves and ranches feeds the algae. When there is conflict over this, Scott habitually sides with the biggest polluters. The sugar industry has quite a deal. It enjoys enormous subsidies, courtesy of federal taxpayers and price supports. Then it gets to dump the waste onto the bottom half of Florida. As for the algae crisis, climate change will severely affect our ability to control blooms, and in some cases could make it near impossible,Ž according to scientists at the University of Florida and the University of North Carolina. Scott refuses to concede human activity contributes to warming, but you could have guessed that. Scott is now running for the U.S. Senate against the Democratic incumbent, Bill Nelson. Predictably, Scott is blaming Nelson for the environmental disaster. Nice try. Nelson is one senator in Washington. As governor, Scott had the power to enforce the Clean Water Act. As governor, Scott nickeled, dimed, slashed and ignored Floridas environmental protections for almost eight years. Get this: With an election now upon him, hes suddenly demanding more money for the state Department of Environmental Protection. This is a politician who knows hes guilty of environmental malpractice, and so should the voters.Environmental malpr actice washes onto beachWhen I was in school, many of my classmates were probably descended from settlers who built the towns first log courthouse. Others, however, stood out as the proverbial new kid In town. Most likely, these students were surrounded by strangers because of the postwar model of the American dream: dad excels at work and gets offered a juicy promotion if he will simply load up the station wagon and drag his dutiful wife, their two-point-five kids and the family dog halfway across the country so he can work his magic as a plant manager, efficiency expert or chemical engineer. Lets not dwell on a corporations arrogance in dispatching an ambitious yes manŽ (who cant make his own coffee!) to straighten out the yokels at the company operation in Podunk. (You still havent got the coffee quite right, Miss Samuelson. Maybe if you wore pearls while making it, like my wife does. No, no, THATS the hand for holding the toilet brush while wearing pearls...Ž) But I digress. According to the Wall Street Journal, job relocations are becoming an increasingly harder sell for businesses. In the late 80s, one-third of workers moved to seek new opportunities elsewhere; but now the hassle of selling a home (a well as many other factors) causes the once-coveted career advancements to be turned down flat. Todays workers have more options than the parents of the Baby Boomers did. The miraculous internet makes it easier to track down jobs closer to home, or even WORK from home assuming you havent signed over your home to a Nigerian widow. With the increase of twoincome families, its difficult to get an employee to relocate unless their spouse also has a high-paying new job waiting. (Benefits? Sure, the Lions Auxiliary will throw you a benefit CARWASH when you see your first paycheck.Ž) Complex divorces and joint custody make relocations impractical. (Honest, I thought the drone could get Junior back to Jersey without running afoul of duck hunters.Ž) Modern parents consider how a move would disrupt the friendships and academic continuity of their children. A far cry from the old days of Dont worry if the local girls wont invite you to their slumber party, Princess. The products we manufacture will probably make them sterile and unable to host slumber parties when they grow up, anyway. *Chuckle*Ž More and more workers are tending to the needs of aging parents and would feel guilty traveling thousands of miles away just for a little more prestige. (Yes, Mom, I know you fed me with those breasts. But the other retirement home residents dont need VISUAL AIDS when you reminisce about it. And assure Dad Ill get the Forestry Service to trim his toenails again.Ž) Finally, Americans are no longer as skilled at conning themselves. (Cmon, this move is a chance to grow and learn new things. And as soon as we get settled, Im running for the school board and city council and Rotary Club presidency, so we can remake this town JUST LIKE HOME. Bwahahahaha...Ž)Would You move for a better job? Really? Froma Harrop Danny Tyree

** Washington County News | Saturday, August 25, 2018 A5By Lloyd DunkelbergerTALLAHASSEE „ The race between Adam Putnam and Ron DeSan-tis for the Republican nomination for governor is tightening, according to a poll released Tuesday by Florida Atlantic University.With a week left before the Aug. 28 primary, a survey from the FAU Business and Economics Polling Initiative showed DeSantis, a three-term congressman from Northeast Florida, with 32 percent of the vote to 31 percent for Putnam, a two-term state agricul-ture commissioner.The poll, conducted from Thursday to Monday, surveyed 222 likely Republican primary voters, with a 6.5 percentage-point margin of error. Some 22 percent of the voters were undecided.The new poll showed an improvement for Putnam, who trailed DeSantis by 9 percent-age points in an FAU poll released in late July.Adam Putnam appears to have regained some of his footing in the gubernatorial race,Ž said Kevin Wagner, an FAU political science professor. The difference may be which candidate is better able to turn out their supporters in the next week.ŽBut a factor in favor of DeSantis is his endorsement by President Donald Trump, with the FAU poll showing the president has an 80 percent approval rating among Florida Republican voters. Overall, Florida voters disapprove of Trump by a 45-43 per-cent margin.In the Democratic primary for governor, former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham of Tallahassee leads the field with 29 percent of the vote in FAU poll. Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine had 17 percent, followed by Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and Palm Beach investor Jeff Greene, who both had 11 percent. Chris King, a Winter Park business-man, had 10 percent.The FAU poll included 239 likely Democratic primary voters and had a 6.3 percentage-point margin of error. Some 19 percent of the voters were undecided.Monica Escaleras, director of the FAU poll-ing group, said Graham, who is the daughter of former Gov. Bob Graham, is being helped by support among women voters.As the only female candidate, she leads the field with 32 percent of the female vote. Males also support her, but to a lesser degree at 25 per-cent,Ž Escaleras said.In the states other highest-profile race, Republican Gov. Rick Scott leads Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson by a margin of 45 percent to 39 percent in their contest for Nelsons Senate seat, with 16 percent of voters undecided, the poll showed. Its a slight improvement for Scott, who led Nelson 44-40 percent in the July survey.On other topics, the FAU survey found 88 percent of voters were veryŽ or somewhatŽ concerned about the physical safety of students, as school started this month for nearly 2.9 million public-school students following a mass shooting in February at a Broward County high school.The survey also showed 60 percent of voters favored stricter guncontrol laws, while 40 percent said the restrictions should be left as they are or made less strict.The overall FAU poll included 800 registered voters and had a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.Poll shows that Putnam, Desantis are in a tight raceThe survey also showed 60 percent of voters favored stricter gun-control laws, while 40 percent said the restrictions should be left as they are or made less strict.

** Washington County News | Saturday, August 25, 2018 A7 LOCAL & STATEBy Jim ThompsonGateHouse Media FloridaEGLIN AFB, Fla. „ A 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) soldier has been arrested for allegedly attempt-ing to smuggle nearly 90 pounds of cocaine from Colombia into the United States, according to an NBC News report.The report, sourced to two unidentified U.S. defense officials, says Master Sgt. Daniel Gould was arrested Monday after U.S. Drug Enforce-ment Administration agents found 40 kilograms of cocaine in two military backpacks on a military airplane in Colombia.ŽContacted Saturday, Lt. Col. Robert Bockholt, director of public affairs at U.S. Army Special Operations Command, said Colombian authori-ties were alerted to the presence of the cocaine by an unidentified Special Operations Command soldier. But according to Bockholt, the cocaine never actually made it onto the aircraft.The NBC News report indicated the plane departing from Colombia was headed for Eglin Air Force Base, and that Gould had returned to the United States before the cocaine was discovered. It was not clear how the cocaine was tied specifically to Gould, and Bockholt would not comment on that aspect of the NBC News report.No information on the incident was available from the Drug Enforcement Administration on Saturday afternoon.The NBC News report said Gould is assigned to the 7th Group. Maj. Kimbia Rey, public affairs officer at the 7th Group headquarters near Crest-view, and Col. Patrick Colloton, commander of the 7th Group, referred additional questions to Army Special Operations Command.Bockholts official comments on the incident, which did not mention Gould by name, were contained in a two-sentence response to an inquiry from the North-west Florida Daily News, the same statement pro-vided to NBC News.We are aware of recent allegations concerning a U.S. soldier assigned under U.S. Army Special Operations Command for reportedly attempting to smuggle narcotics from Colombia into the U.S.,Ž Bockholt said in the statement. We are cooperating fully with law enforcement officials concerning this matter. In order to protect the integrity of the investigation and the rights of the individual, there is no additional informa-tion available for release at this time.ŽAccording to a 2010 Army news release, Gould was awarded a Silver Star, the nations third-highest military honor, for actions during the 7th Groups 2007-08 deployment to Afghani-stan. The 7th Group moved from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to Eglin in 2011. Jim Thompson is a staff writer for the Northwest Florida Daily News.Soldier arrested for 90 pounds of cocaine into U.S.Master Sgt. Daniel Gould [GATEHOUSE MEDIA FLORIDA] News Service Florida StaffTALLAHASSEE Readying for a hearing next week, attorneys for the Florida Greyhound Association filed a 58-page brief Tuesday asking the state Supreme Court to scuttle a proposed consti-tutional amendment aimed at banning dog racing at pari-mutuel facilities.The association, which includes owners, breed-ers and trainers, wants the Supreme Court to uphold a ruling by Leon County Cir-cuit Judge Karen Gievers, who said the amendment should not go on the Nov. 6 ballot because it would be misleading to voters.In Tuesdays brief, the association raised a series of issues, including argu-ing that the ballot title and summary of what is known as Amendment 13 would not explain to voters the "chief purpose" of the measure. The association contends that purpose, in part, is to "declare the humane treatment of ani-mals a fundamental value" a purpose that is reflected in the broader text of the amendment.Voters see the ballot title and summary when they go to the polls. "The ballot title and summary for Amend-ment 13 are completely silent regarding its recognition of the humane treatment of animals as a fundamental value," the brief said. It also argues that the proposed constitutional amendment is misleading because it would not end dog racing. In part, the brief said Flo-ridians could still bet on live dog racing broadcast from tracks outside of the state.The Florida Constitution Revision Commission this spring placed the grey-hound-racing amendment on the ballot. Attorney General Pam Bondis office last week filed a 44-page brief urging the Supreme Court to allow the measure to go before voters."This (Supreme) Court has long maintained that the amendment process is the most sanctified area in which a court can exercise power, and a proposed amendment should be submitted to the electorate unless its ballot language is clearly and conclusively defective," Bondis office said in the brief. "Because the ballot language at issue in this case fully informs the electorate of the pro-posed amendments chief purpose and is not misleading, Floridas voters have a right to consider its merits and cast their vote." Justices are scheduled to hear arguments Aug. 29.Supreme Court asked to block dog racing measureBy Jim SaundersTALLAHASSEE Attorney General Pam Bondis office is asking the Florida Supreme Court to reject a legal challenge that seeks to block six proposed constitutional amendments from going on the November ballot.In a 47-page brief filed late Monday, Bondis office disputed arguments that the proposed amendments, placed on the ballot by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission, violate First Amendment rights and improperly tie together unrelated subjects.Plaintiffs, including former Supreme Court Justice Harry Lee Anstead, filed the case last week, arguing that combining disparate issues in single ballot proposals violates First Amendment rights of voters and is logrollingŽ of issues that should be considered separately. It raised the specter of voters having conflict-ing views of issues in the same ballot proposal.But Bondis office said in the brief that the Constitution Revision Commission is not limited to including only one subject in individual ballot proposals. That is different, the brief said, from citizens ballot initiatives that are limited to single subjects. The 37-member Constitution Revision Commission meets every 20 years and has unique power to place measures on the ballot.Florida law does not impose a single-subject requirement on revisions proposed by the CRC,Ž the brief, written by state Solicitor General Amit Agarwal and Chief Deputy Solicitor General Edward Wenger, said. To the contrary, the Florida Constitution affirmatively authorizes multi-subject revisions proposed by the CRC, granting the commis-sion authority not only to propose revisions to any part of the Florida Con-stitution on a piecemeal basis, but also to propose revisions to this Constitution as a whole.ŽThe legal challenge focuses, at least in part, on choices that voters might be forced to make at the ballot box. For example, one of the chal-lenged amendments known as Amendment 9, asks voters to approve a ban on offshore oil drilling and a ban on vaping and the use of electronic cigarettes in workplaces --issues on which a voter could have conflict-ing views.This is logrolling and a form of issue gerrymandering that violates the First Amendment right of the voter to vote for or against specific independent and unrelated proposals to amend the Constitution without paying the price of supporting a measure the voter opposes or opposing a measure the voter supports,Ž the case said. This (Supreme) Court has acknowledged that the right to vote is a fun-damental right that may not be abridged in the absence of a compelling and narrowly drawn state interest.ŽBut Bondis office Monday called the First Amendment argument a novel constitutional theoryŽ that does not have a basis in legal prec-edents or history.Moreover, even if the First Amendment included the right petitioners claim, the CRC had an entirely rational basis for bundling some of the amendments for inclusion on the 2018 general election ballot,Ž the brief said. According to election officials, long ballots often discourage citizens from voting at all, and if the CRC had listed all the proposed amendments separately, there would appear 25 questions on the ballot this fall. ƒ In other words, the CRC acted reasonably and with the proper inten-tion of minimizing ballot fatigue when it decided to bundle proposed consti-tutional amendments.Ž The case seeks to block six of eight proposed con-stitutional amendments that the commission placed on the Nov. 6 ballot. Along with the proposal about oil drilling and vaping, the challenge targets:--A proposal that includes expanding the rights of crime victims and raising the mandatory retirement age of judges.--A proposal dealing with governance of the state-college system and death benefits for survivors of first responders and military members.--A proposal that would impose term limits on school-board members and require increased civic literacyŽ education.--A proposal that includes changing the start dates of legislative sessions and requiring charter county governments to have elected constitutional officers.--A proposal that includes removing constitutional language that prohibits aliens ineligible for citizenshipŽ from owning property and revising language to make clear that the repeal of criminal statutes does not affect the prosecu-tion of crimes committed before the repeal.State backs challenged ballot proposals Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi The Florida Constitution Revision Commission this spring placed the greyhound-racing amendment on the ballot. Attorney General Pam Bondis o ce last week led a 44-page brief urging the Supreme Court to allow the measure to go before voters.

** Washington County News | Saturday, August 25, 2018 A9 NATION & WORLD DATELINESSAN DIEGO WASHINGTONAP: National Enquirers safe held damaging Trump storiesThe National Enquirer kept a safe containing documents on hush money payments and other damaging stories it killed as part of its cozy relationship with Donald Trump leading up to the 2016 presidential election, people familiar with the arrangement said.The detail came as several media outlets reported on Thursday that federal prose-cutors had granted immunity to National Enquirer chief David Pecker.Trumps former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty this week to campaign finance violations alleging he, Trump and the tabloid were involved in buying the silence of a porn actress and a Play-boy model who alleged affairs with Trump.CUTHBERT, GA.Black voters energized amid outcry over polling placesOfficials in a predominantly black Georgia county fired a consultant amid wide-spread backlash to a proposal that would close most polling places in the area three months ahead of a potentially historic election.Consultant Mike Malone had advocated consolidating the polling sites after he was hired in April. Ran-dolph County lawyer Tommy Coleman sent Malone a letter Wednesday ending the contract. Despite the firing, the Randolph County Board of Elections will still „ for now „ hold a vote Friday on whether to eliminate seven of the rural countys nine polling places ahead of this falls pivotal midterm elections.BRIDGEPORT, CONN. Woman who made false rape claim gets 1 year in jailA woman who police say had a sexual encounter with two college football players in Connecticut and later made false rape allegations so she wouldnt lose a poten-tial boyfriend was sentenced Thursday to one year in jail.Nikki Yovino, 20, was sen-tenced Thursday. She agreed to serve the jail time when she pleaded guilty in June, just before jury selection was to begin, to misdemeanor charges of falsely reporting an incident and interfering with police.Yovino was attending Sacred Heart University in Fairfield when she reported being raped by two school football players at an offcampus party in Bridgeport in October 2016.BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINAArgentine authorities carry out raids at Fernandezs homesArgentine authorities car-ried out raids at homes owned by former President Cristina Fernandez on Thursday as part of a case investigating wide-spread corruption.Fernandez, who is now a senator, has been accused of orchestrating a bribe scheme in the granting of public works contracts that has ensnared many of Argentinas former officials and business elite. She was among the 67 sena-tors who approved the raids on three of her own properties late Wednesday following a request by a federal judge. But it was unclear what investigators hoped to find as they searched in an apartment located in the Argentine capi-tal with the assistance of a K-9 unit.DUBLINPriest urges Vatican family conference to welcome gaysOne of the Catholic Churchs leading advocates for gays told a Vatican-sponsored confer-ence Thursday that LGBT Catholics deserve to be loved, listened to and welcomed by the church and not ostracized and condemned.The Rev. James Martin received a standing ovation after his presentation on wel-coming LGBT Catholics at the churchs World Meeting of Families, which Pope Fran-cis will attend this weekend. Martin told the audience that LGBT Catholics have often been treated like lepers by the churchŽ despite Christs example of welcom-ing and loving all those on the margins of society. The Associated PressU.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter leaves an arraignment hearing Thursday in San Diego. Hunter and his wife, Margaret, pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges they illegally used his campaign account for personal expenses.

[ANSA VIA AP]By Jennifer Sinco KelleherThe Associated PressHONOLULU„ A powerful hurricane unleashed torrents of rain and landslides Thursday that blocked roads on the rural Big Island but didnt scare tourists away from surfing and swimming at popular Honolulu beaches still preparing to be pummeled by the erratic storm.Employees of the Sheraton Waikiki resort on the famed beach filled up sandbags as shuttered stores stacked them against the bottom of their glass windows to prepare for massive rain, flooding and damaging surf on Oahu, the most populated island.Hurricane Lane already lashed the Big Island with nearly 20 inches of rain in nearly 24 hours and was moving closer to Hawaii, a shift that will put the Big Island and Maui in the thickŽ of the storm, National Weather Ser-vice meteorologist Melissa Dye said. The agency has down-graded the storm to a Category 3.The center of the hurricane packing maximum sustained winds of 130 mph was expected to move close to or over portions of the main islands later Thursday or Friday, bringing dangerous surf of 20 feet and a storm surge of up to 4 feet, forecasters said.Lane was not projected to make a direct hit on the islands, but officials warned that even a lesser blow could do significant harm. Some areas could see up to 30 inches of rain.Rain has been nonstop for the last half hour or so, and winds are just starting to pick up,Ž said Pablo Akira Beimler, who lives on the coast in Hono-kaa on the Big Island. Our usually quiet stream is raging right now.ŽBeimler, who posted videos of trees being blown sideways, said staying put is about the only choice he has. The road to Hilo was cut off due to landslides, he said.We essentially have one way in and out of our towns so sheltering in place is the prior-ity,Ž Beimler said in a Twitter message.Roughly 200 miles away on Oahu, Elisabeth Brinson was still watching surfers from her balcony on the ninth floor of the Hawaiian Hilton Village in Waikiki, where she will ride out the storm.I dont think were in too much trouble as far as flooding where we are now,Ž said the native of the United Kingdom now living in Denver.Hotel staff left a notice that the rooms will still have water and phone service, and a backup generator will power one eleva-tor per building.Brinson said many shops were closed, and those still open were frantic with people buying food, beer and water to take back to their rooms.We knew it was coming, so I tried to just cram as much as I could into the last few days in anticipation so we could cross things off of our list,Ž said Brinson, who is accustomed to hurricanes after living in Flor-ida. You cant really do much about the weather.ŽHawaiis biggest hotels are confident they can keep their guests safe as long as they stay inside, said Mufi Hannemann, CEO of Hawaii Tourism and Lodging Association.Members of his association, which include the states major hotels, are shifting into high gear with their emergency management plans, he said.The only concern is those that venture outside of the properties, that would like to hike on a day like this or who would like to still go into the ocean and see what its like to take a swim or surf in these kind of waters,Ž Hannemann said.Hotels are trying to warn travelers against that, he said.Two campers were reported trapped overnight in Waipio Valley, along the Big Islands northern coast. The campers called authorities Wednesday, but emergency crews could not mount a rescue operation.We cant go in because the roads „ theres a river of water down there,Ž said Hawaii County Managing Director Wil Okabe.Shelters opened Wednesday on the Big Island and on Maui, Molokai and Lanai and were set to open Thursday in Oahu. Aid agencies were also working to help Hawaiis sizeable homeless population, many of whom live near beaches and streams that could flood.Because theres not enough shelter space statewide, Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Tom Travis urged people who were not in flood zones to stay home.On the island of Lanai, it was eerily dead still and gray, said Nick Palumbo II, who owns Lanai Surf School and Safari.Its relatively like a regular day,Ž he said by telephone. I got friends calling me telling me theres surf at the beach, and theyre actually going surfing right now.ŽPalumbo is prepared for the storm after boarding up one large window and stocking up on snack food. Hes also got a freezer full of fish hes caught on dives and deer hes hunted to last his family through the storm.Hurricane Lane downgraded as it nears HawaiiHotel employees “ ll sandbags along the beach in preparation for Hurricane Lane, Thursday in Honolulu.

** A10 Saturday, August 25, 2018 | Washington County NewsBy Ralph D. RussoThe Associated PressFootball coaches talk a lot about creating a family atmosphere in their programs.They walk into the homes of teenagers and tell the loved ones of each recruit: Well make him not only a better player, but a better person.College football media guides are filled with coach-ing staff bios accompanied by photos with smiling wives and children. Players call the team a brotherhood. Coaches wives bond over the shared experience of an unorthodox and transient life. They become team moms.All of this makes sense. As seriously as we take col-lege football „ too seriously, clearly „ were talking about unpaid 18-22 year olds play-ing a game. This business doesnt need to be all busi-ness. But what has transpired over the last three weeks at Ohio State is a lesson to all coaches. Your football pro-gram is not a family.Urban Meyer treating Zach Smith like family almost cost one of the most accom-plished coaches in college football his job. A case can be made that it should have. Instead, Meyer is suspended for the first three games this season.Its OK to run your football program as a family right up until the point when it gets dysfunctional. When families are confronted with a troubled or troublesome relative, they tend to close ranks. They search for solu-tions within and often look to mom and dad to clean up the mess.Meyer thought he knew best how to handle Smith, a former player for him and the grandson of his mentor, the late Ohio State coach Earle Bruce.Instead of acting like the vice president in charge of football for THE Ohio State University, and protecting the employer that pays him millions to be the face of a $7 billion institution, Meyers instinct was to shield his family.As I reflect, my loyalty to his grandfather likely impacted the way I treated Zach Smith,Ž Meyer said Wednesday night, part of a dispassionate reading of a statement. I should have demanded more from him and recognized red flags.ŽThe red flags started in 2009 when Zach Smith was arrested in Gainesville, Flor-ida, where he was working for Meyer and the Gators. Smith allegedly picked up his pregnant wife, Courtney, and threw her against a wall. He denies that.The family closed ranks. Courtney decided not to press charges. Meyer and his wife sent the couple for counseling and came away doubtful of her allegations, according to the report delivered by independent investigators into Meyers handling of domestic violence allegations against Zach Smith.After Meyer hired Smith at Ohio State in 2011, one thing after another could have led to Smith being fired for simply being bad at his job. The investigation called it a pattern of troubling behavior.ŽSmith brought a high school coach to a strip club while on a recruiting trip. Meyer warned him to not do it again.Smith had credit cards declined when setting up recruiting trips and was delinquent in paying for other expenses. Meyer said he vaguely remembered those issues.While Smiths marriage was falling apart, his performance at work suffered. He was late and no-showed on some responsibilities, the report said. Meyers boss, athletic director Gene Smith, recommended Smith be fired. He wasnt.In 2016, Meyer directed Zach Smith into a drug treat-ment facility. Meyer did not tell Gene Smith about this „ or that 2009 arrest in Florida.So it should be no sur-prise when confronted with allegations Zach Smith phys-ically assaulted his wife in 2015, Meyer merely scolded Smith and threatened to fire him if Meyer found out he hit Courtney Smith. Charges were never filed.Last month, Meyer finally fired Zach Smith after Courtney Smith received a protective order against her ex-husband. According to investigators, Meyer texted his agent that his plan for Big Ten media day was to keep the reasons in-house. I will not tell media,Ž Meyer wrote.The text Meyer got back from his agent: only a matter of time before he did something that did sub-stantial harm to you or the program.Ž Too late.While we do not doubt that Coach Meyer respects women and is dedicated to fostering an environment of respect for women in his program,Ž the report said, his apparent blind spot for Zach Smith seems to have impaired his judgment and his management of the behavior of at least one of his assistants.ŽThat blind spot now leaves a permanent mark on Mey-ers legacy.A family matterBy keeping it in the family, Urban Meyer tarnishes legacy SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFVYSOKY UJEZD, CZECH REPUBLIC Ryder Cup hopefuls start well at Czech MastersRyder Cup hopefuls Thomas Pieters and Eddie Pepperell made strong starts at the Czech Masters on Thursday to boost their chances of qualifying for Europes team.Belgiums Pieters, the 2015 Czech Masters champion, started with two birdies at the Albatross Golf Resort near Prague and added six more in his opening round to finish with an 8-under 64 and a share of the lead.He is tied with twotime major champion John Daly, Callum Tarren and Gavin Green.Nacho Elvira, Andrea Pavan, Lee Slattery, Jeff Winther and Tapio Pulkkanen are one stroke back.Englands Pepperell needs to win the tournament to move into an automatic qualifying place for the Ryder Cup. Enjoying the initially sunny conditions, he had seven birdies and a bogey in his 66 to sit two shots off the lead.JAKARTA, INDONESIAJapanese teen Ikee wins 5th gold at Asian GamesRikako Ikee is turning Jakartas Asian Games pool into her own golden pond. Every time she dives into the water, she comes out with another medal.The 18-year-old Ikee did it again Thursday, swimming the butterfly leg for the Japanese team that won the womens 4x100-meter medley relay.The victory gave her a fifth gold and her seventh medal overall in Jakarta, leaving her in a tie for second in two of the most significant medal catego-ries in the 67-year history of the regions biggest multi-sports event.Only North Korean shooter So Gin Man has tallied more at one edition, winning a total of eight medals, including seven gold, at the 1982 Asian Games.Ikee still has one more race to come on the sixth and final day of swimming.ZURICHPeru captain Guerrero banned againPeru captain Paolo Guerrero, who was cleared to play at the World Cup by Switzerlands supreme court, has again been blocked from playing because a federal judge ended the freeze on his 14-month doping ban.The Swiss Federal Tribunal has lifted the provisional suspensive effectŽ that allowed Guerrero to play in Russia, FIFA said Thursday.The decision means the 34-year-old Guerrero will not be allowed to resume playing with his new club in Brazil, Internacional, pending a further decision in the Swiss court.Guerrero tested positive for a metabolite of cocaine at a World Cup qualifying game against Argentina in October. The Associated Press By John ZenorThe Associated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. „ Blue-chip players arent the only ones who come and go on Alabamas sidelines. The Crimson Tides success has led to a turnover on coach Nick Sabans staff as well. Saban had to recruit six assistant coaches during the offseason while elevating two others to coordinator positions. He landed a group hes hoping will help the top-ranked Crimson Tide contend for not only more cham-pionships but more of the nations top prospects.Saban described the group as one of the best recruiting staffs of his tenure at Alabama, a run that includes a seven-year streak of No. 1 recruiting classes end this year.The new energy and enthusiasm and ideas that they brought to the organization, I think, are going to be a long-term positive,Ž Saban said.The two linchpins „ offensive coordinator Mike Locksley and defen-sive coordinator Tosh Lupoi „ were promoted within the staff. Three Saban coordinators have taken head coaching jobs the past three years, including Georgias Kirby Smart, Tennessees Jeremy Pruitt and Florida Atlantics Lane Kiffin.Ex-assistant Mario Cristobal was named Oregons head coach last December after a year as the Ducks co-offensive coordinator.Both Lupoi and Locksley joined Alabamas program as analysts before assistant positions opened up.Locksley is a former offensive coordinator at Illinois and Maryland, where he finished the 2016 season as interim head coach. Unlike his recent predecessors, he works with wide receivers instead of the quarterbacks. Locksley has said hell defer to Saban on the final decision to name the starting quarterback between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa.Unlike Pruitt and Smart, Lupoi will work with out-side linebackers instead of the defensive backs. The former California defen-sive lineman is a first-time defensive coordinator who has been groomed by Saban for bigger things.I think hes really developed as a coach,Ž the head coach said. I think hes taken it upon himself to not want to be a guy that was viewed just as a recruiter or just as a guy that could coach the front. Hes really, really committed himself to learning the big picture, the coverages, the secondary. I spent a significant amount of time with him doing that.ŽSaban noted that the transition from coordinators Pruitt and Brian Daboll (now with the NFLs Buffalo Bills) has been pretty painless.Ž After all, theyre running Bamas system with their own individual touch not the other way around.A new eneryAlabama enters season with 6 new coaches on sidelines Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer answers questions during a news conference Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio.

WASHINGTON COUNTY CHURCH LISTINGS FAITHThanks to a back injury last week, I spent an inordinate amount of time stretched out on my living room floor. If youve ever hurt your back, you know how this goes. At first, its not so bad. You have quiet time to read and catch up on your work. Then you move to what I like to call the trashy stage, when youve finished your work, and you start binging on things like The View,Ž Dr. PhilŽ and tacky Hollywood magazines. (By the way, did you hear that Brad and Jen are back together?) Eventually, the time comes when even Hollywood gossip is not enough. Thats when it gets ugly, because then you have nothing to do but lie there surveying the nooks and crannies of your house that you wouldnt ordinarily see. My line of sight was directly under my couch. Much to my embarrassment, I saw, hiding in the shadows, a collection of coins and pens, one sock, several dust balls the size of a ferret, an old Verizon bill, and a small yellow cube, which turned out to be a wayward cheese appetizer from a cocktail party we gave back in December. I had no idea all that mess was under there. I guess Id never looked. In retrospect, maybe its not such a bad thing to look at your house „ even your life „ with a view from the floor. It may not reveal the carefully crafted image that you prefer or want others to see, but it can show you the raw truth of how life really is. If you took an honest look at your life with a view from the floor, what would you see? What things have you brushed aside or hidden away? Maybe it is as simple as the stuff in your inbox that you keep shifting to the bottom because you dont want to deal with it. Or perhaps it is a deeper issue such as conflicts in a relationship you dont want to face, a financial problem you are trying to hide, or an addiction, illness or other aspects of yourself from which youre running. Our tendency to brush aside or hide away things holds true on a larger scale too. Every day in our global house,Ž we sweep issues under the couch because no one wants to face the view from the floor. Consider the genocide of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar (that no one wants to acknowledge), global warming (that no one wants to claim) or the deep-seated racism and discrimination in our country (that no one wants to admit, let alone take responsibility for). There is a sad irony in of all this because like a wayward cheese appetizer, if left hidden, these things can easily degenerate and get messy. These are the things that need light, not shadows. These are the things that need to be brought out in the open, not swept under the couch. These are the things that need a housekeeper who cares. Fortunately, we have one: God. The Psalmist tell us that God knows all about what lurks under our emotional couches: O Lord you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away. Even before a word is on my tongue, O LORD, you know it completelyŽ (Psalms 139). God sees with piercing clarity those troubled areas in our hearts, in our families, and in our world and still loves us unconditionally: Even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fastŽ (Psalms 139). If God is willing to look upon these hidden places with love, acceptance, even forgiveness, why shouldnt we? Last week, we lost Aretha Franklin, one of the worlds great creative artists. Of all her songs, my favorite was Respect.Ž Aretha was right on so many levels „ life really does come down to those seven letters: R-E-S-P-EC-T. We should respect our gift of life enough to claim who we are, deep down, in our hidden nooks and c rannies. We should respect the lives of others enough to acknowledge their pain and suffering. We should respect our world enough to shine a light on injustice so that all can see. What things in your life are hidden away that need to be seen? W hat painful issues have been ignored that need to be discussed? What parts of yourself do you need to R-E-S-P-EC-T?Ž enough to bring out into the light and heal? Whatever it is, its OK. God already knows about it. And miraculously, were still unconditionally loved. A trial lawyer turned standup comedian and Baptist minister, Rev.

Drive-thrus are everywhere, and there are many types from which to choose. But when I was a little girl, having a hamburger was a special treat. My all-time favorite version is courtesy of my grandmother, who would grate a peeled raw potato into the ground beef. Not only does it add extra flavor and texture, but it also helped to stretch the meat. Make sure you use the smallest holes of your box grater to grate the potato. Old Fashioned Burgers€ 1 pound of ground chuck € 1 medium russet potato, peeled and “ nely grated € t granulated garlic € t freshly ground black pepper € t salt Break up the meat with a fork in a large bowl. Add the potato, garlic, black pepper and salt. Mix thoroughly with the fork. Shape into four patties. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the burgers to the pan. Let burgers cook until there is a nice browned sear. Flip the burgers and cook to your desired level of doneness. Serve on toasted buns with favorite toppings.Salmon BurgersIf youve never tried a salmon burger, give these a try. An added bonus is a healthy dose of omega 3s. € 1 16 oz. can boneless/skinless salmon, drained and ” aked € 2 eggs, lightly beaten € t Old Bay seasoning € 1 T lemon juice € 1 T chopped fresh parsley € 2 cloves garlic, grated € A few grinds black pepper € cup bread crumbs € 1 T minced red onion € 2 to 3 T vegetable oil In a medium bowl, lightly mix all ingredients (except vegetable oil) with a fork. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Shape into four patties and place into skillet. Cook, occasionally turning, until burgers are cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Toast the buns and serve with your favorite lettuce and tartar sauce.

By Ari LeVauxMore Content NowWhen I told my wife I was off to find some lovage, she was supportive. Levisticum officinale, after all, is a close relative of celery, parsley and dill, three of her favorite plants to eat. Lovage is hard to find in stores, but we have a plant. Or at least, we know of a plant. It resides behind the cabin where she and I first lived together. The only problem, from a lovage perspective, is we dont live there anymore. I first experienced lovage in the form of Rapunzel brand Vegetable Bouillon with Herbs. It remained on my radar for years, more as a whimsical word than anything I could picture. I didnt know if it was a plant, animal, fungus or what. A few years later at the farmers market I found out what it was, and brought a lovage plant home to the cabin. I planted it near the garden, where it got a lot of water and grew taller than me, like some kind of mutant celery plant on herbal steroids. What it tastes like Originally brought over by European settlers, lovage remained after settlements were abandoned, doing just fine on its own. This tenacious plant runs wild from Florida to Saskatchewan. The lovage cabins new residents dont seem to prioritize landscaping. July had been hot, without a single drop of rain, and the town was drying up. As I rode my bike down the gravel alley, I wondered what I would find. The unfenced yard was a brownscape, with one lovable exception. A patch of green in a parched yard that had been left for dead, the lovage, amazingly, didnt even look stressed. It was smaller than it used to grow, only about knee-height, but looked happy. I knelt down, cleaned up some dead stalks around the base, pulled away some errant grass, and cut some lovage. The early New Englanders had myriad Old World uses for the plant, the entirety of which is edible. They used to candy the root and chew the seed in order to stay alert during long church services. Indeed, the seeds will numb your mouth, like Szechuan peppercorns, and the leaves, while not as intense, nonetheless have the piercing aroma of enhanced celery. This bitter mouth buzz makes lovage popular among serious mixologists and edgy cooks alike. Chopped and tossed with a salad or mixed in a dressing, simmered in soups, rubbed on meat or mixed into your drink, lovage belongs in a lot of places. Where to nd it If you dont have a local stash of lovage, it can be tricky to score. Big city grocers will sometimes stock it, and lovage seed is readily available online, which can be sown in spring or late summer (and chewed yearround in church). Its worth asking the plant people at the farmers market if they know where any living lovage might be found. A quick check at my local store found lovage in three separate vegetarian bouillon brands, with Rapunzel remaining the best of the lot. If you cant find any fresh lovage, and dont have time to order seeds and grow your own plant, your best option is to purchase lovage extract online. Hawaiian Pharm seems to have the most for sale at the moment.Bodacious plant brings unique avor to anythingFLASH IN THE PANLovable lovageLovage Emulsion€ 3-6 lovage leaves (or 1 tsp extract) € 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed € 1 whole egg € 2 tbsp lime juice € 1 tbsp cider vinegar € tsp Dijon mustard € tsp salt € 1 cups oil (I like a light, fruity olive oil; saf” ower, sun” ower and canola work, too) In a clean blender or food processor, add egg, lime juice, lovage leaves, cider vinegar, salt, dijon and garlic. Blend until smooth. If its not enough material for the blade to catch, double the recipe. You wont be sorry. Then, as one does when making mayonnaise, cross your heart or do any other ritual you might have, and begin slowly adding the oil in a thin stream with the blade running. Do not add more oil until the “ rst few drops have completely dispersed. Then add a little more. Repeat at a snails pace, blade running, until youve added half a cup, at which point, if you havent screwed up, you can add oil a little more quickly. After about a cup you will hear the sound thicken. Keep going until its all stuck to the side of the blender and not sliding down. Scrape it off with a rubber spatuala. Lovage emulsion can be enjoyed on just about anything, including bread, “ sh or meat. [PHOTOS BY ARI LEVAUX]Lovage plant leaves can be used as an herb
