** A2 Saturday, September 1, 2018 | Washington County News LOCAL & STATEA story on A1 titled published Wednesday, Aug. 29 did not state a defendant had been dismissed in a law suit filed by attorney Tiffany R. Cruz. Washington County Clerk of Court's Clerk Exec-utive Assistant Shawna has since been dismissed from the case.Setting It StraightA Republican state representative from Fort Myers will face a Democratic lawyer from South Florida to become Florida's next agriculture commissioner.Matt Caldwell defeated fellow GOP candidates Baxter Troutman, Denise Grimsley and Mike McCalister.Nikki Fried won the Demo-crats nomination, defeating Jeff Porter and Roy David Walker.The 37-year old Caldwell, whose family has a history in farming, was first elected to the Florida House of Rep-resentatives in 2010 but is unable to run again due to term limits.The 40-year old Fried helped lobby for medical marijuana legislation two years ago. Last week Wells Fargo shut down Fried's campaign account after she had "funds received from lobbyists from the medical marijuana industry."Fried, Caldwell advance in agriculture commission raceThe Associated Press The Democratic and Republican primaries for attorney general were won by two candidates from the Tampa area.State Rep. Sean Shaw won his primary over Tampa attorney Ryan Torrens, while former judge and prosecutor Ashley Moody won the GOP nomination.Both primaries were particularly nasty „ and there almost wasn't a Democratic primary. Democratic state Rep. Sean Shaw has more money and establishment support, but he filed a lawsuit to get Torrens off the ballot. Torrens responded by suing Shaw for libel. Just four days before the primary, a judge agreed that Torrens used an illegal donation to pay the qualifying fee to get on the ballot, and ruled that no votes for him should be counted. But an appeals judge put a stay on the decision on Monday, keeping Torrens' campaign alive.On the Republican side, auto-dealer lawyer and state Rep. Frank White ran as a Trump-style conservative, while Moody ran on her expe-rience in court. White attacked Moody for suing Trump over a failed Tampa development project, while Moody has attacked White as a car salesman turned politician.Shaw, Moody form Attorney General raceSarasota Herald-TribunePresident Donald Trumps endorsement lifted U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis to victory in Floridas Republican pri-mary for governor Tuesday and abruptly halted the long rise of Agriculture Commis-sioner Adam Putnam, for years a darling of the states GOP establishment.DeSantis rewrote the political playbook in Florida with his win, beating a candidate who raised considerably more money andexecuted a textbook campaign centered around extensive television adver-tising, cultivating strong support among GOP leaders across the state and employing superior grass-roots organizing. Putnams campaign knocked on more than400,000 doors andthe candidate held more than200 public events.All of that proved fruitless in the face of Trumps endorsement, which helped pluck DeSantis from relative obscurity and propel him into the frontrunner spot in the GOP race. DeSantis was quickto offerthe president hisgratitudeduring avictory speech at the Rosen Shingle Creek hotel in Orlando.I want to thank him for his support and for trusting me to lead Florida,Ž DeSan-tis said of Trump.With Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum „ an outspoken liberal who was endorsed by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and hascalled for Trumps impeachment „ winning the Democratic primary for governor, the nomination of DeSantis sets up a match up ofpolar political opposites that is sure to excite both parties bases and offer voters a clear choice in November. Both Gillum and DeSantis are disruptive, anti-estab-lishment candidates.In toppling the Putnam political machine, DeSantis continues a string of victories by outsider GOP candidates that dates back to Gov. Rick Scotts primary win in 2010 and continued in 2016 with Trumps victory over U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio in Floridas presiden-tial primary.DeSantis is a member of the House Freedom Caucus, the far right group of lawmakers who have been wielding increasing influence as the GOP moves further to the right. He attacked Putnam from the right on issues such as immigration and education reform while also making environmental protec-tion a key issue in the race, an unusual twist in a GOP primary.With algae blooms devastating waterfront communities on both coasts, DeSantis hammered Putnam for being too closely tied to the sugar industry, which is regularly blamed for contributing to excess nutrient levels that fuel algae growth. On immigration, Putnam proved vulnerable in a party that has moved sharply toward stronger immigra-tion enforcement efforts in recent years. DeSantis criti-cized Putnam for supporting the so-called Gang of Eight immigration bill a few years ago that offered a pathway to citizenship for some undocumented immigrants, deriding him as Amnesty Adam.ŽA series of controversies at the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services also weighed down Putnams campaign, most notablythe handling of con-cealed weapons licenses.News reports highlighted problems „ documented in a lawsuit and state investigations „ with how Putnams office processed the licenses, including a lapse that let almost 300 people improperly obtain concealed carry permits and complaints that the department was unprepared to handle a flood of license requests.But Trumps endorse-ment was the biggest factor in swinging the race to DeSantis.Lido Key resident Marlena Randanne de Vazeille said Tuesday that she voted for DeSantis because Trump suggested it.Ž Her husband, Jacques Randanne de Vazeille, said he trusts Trumps judgment.What I like, and Ill be very honest with you, is that I have finally somebody who listens to what I want and not what the government wants,Ž said Jacques Ran-danne de Vazeille.Polls showed Putnam comfortably ahead in the race before Trump tweeted his full endorsement of DeSantis on June 22.Ron is strong on Bor-ders, tough on Crime & big on Cutting Taxes „ Loves our Military & our Vets. He will be a Great Governor & has my full Endorsement!Ž Trump tweeted.The president flew to Tampa on July 31 „ Putnams birthday „ to tout DeSantis during a rally at the Florida State Fair-grounds. By then DeSantis, a three-term congressman from Northeast Florida, had begun to eclipse Putnam in the polls.Recent surveys seemed to indicate the race was tight-ening and that Putnam was within striking distance, but DeSantis ended up winning by a comfortable margin.Trump drove home his support for DeSantis with a robocall to voters during the weekend and two tweets touting the candidate Monday.The presidents involve-ment in the race bedeviled Putnam, who struggled to minimize the endorsement without criticizing Trump, who is hugely popular with GOP voters.My opponents running on an endorsement,Ž Putnam said during a recent event in Bradenton. No plan, no vision, no agenda „ just an endorsement. Just hanging on to the coattails. It takes more than that to lead the state of Florida.ŽYet while Trump gave DeSantis, 39, a huge boost, the congressman also benefited from frequent appearances on Fox News, where he defended Trump and advocated hardline conservative positions.And DeSantis background proved appealing to conservatives once they began to learn more about him.A graduate of Yale and Harvard Law School, DeSantis served in theU.S. Navys Judge Advocate General Corps and has been a committed conservative in Congress.Meanwhile, Putnam, 43,has held elected office continuously since he was 22, first as a member of the Florida House before head-ing to Congress and winning the agriculture commis-sioner job in 2010.After returning to Florida, Putnam was viewed as almost certain to run for governor someday and he began sowing up support in every part of the state. Affa-ble and well-liked within the party, Putnam seemed like a good bet to secure the GOP nomination for gover-nor this year.Trumps involvement in the race upset many Republicans who viewed Putnam as better prepared to be governor and better positioned to win a general election.SomeRepublicans worry that DeSantis could have a hard time winning the gen-eral election because he is so conservative, and so closely associated with Trump „ an extremely polarizing figure. Democrats welcomed the chance to face him in the general election.For months, Adam Putnam and Florida Republicans have attacked DeSantis for having no plan, no vision, no agenda, no knowledge, no working knowledge of our state. They were right,Ž Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo said in a state-ment, adding: DeSantis has shown zero interest in Florida and instead spent this campaign courting Donald Trump, Fox News celebrities and out-of-state billionaires.ŽDeSantis dismissed con-cerns that he would be a weaker general election candidateduring a recent interview.Ive been underestimated against Putnam, people are now starting to change that view, and I think Ill be underestimated going forward, but thats just how I like it,Ž DeSantis said.DeSantis victory continues a string of recent primary wins by GOP candidates backed by Trump, a winning streak that highlights the presidents strength within the party and success at remaking the GOP in his own image.

Nonetheless, the event has impacted the local economy in a positive way.Lopez also said she expects next month bed taxes to be higher year-over-year as well."I expect it to be just looking at the occupancy rates. I expect us to have a good month next month too." TDCFrom Page A1"Scarecrows grow in the garden," she chuckled. "Well, that's the way we look at it."Themed "Scarecrows and Indians," the annual event will be held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 22 at the train depot site of the Washington County Historical Society Museum and Farmers Market. Spectators can expect to peruse a diversity of scare-crow entries and experience the history of Creek Indians.Contest participants will pay a $5 entry fee to enter. Winners will receive cash prizes, ribbons, certifi-cates, and bragging rights. Entries may be of a single or group of scarecrows.The entries will be dis-played on the grassy area at the museum on the day of the contest.The Club met last week to "fluff up" the collection of more than 25 handmade scarecrows stored from last November. Organizers say to keep an eye out for the staked char-acters, because some have new hats, heads, outfits and perhaps have "grown" legs.Collins said the event is sure to capture the imagination of individuals from all generations.The contest will be held in conjunction with the WCHS's history festival.

** Washington County News | Saturday, September 1, 2018 A3The School District will be able to plan and budget for future tech-nology and construction projects knowing that there is a stable revenue to fund these projects."The half-cent sales tax will generate approximately $1 million annually. The levy will applied to all sales taxable expenditures up to $5,000 purchase. It is limited to the first $5,000 of any expenditure, should a car purchase or large mate-rial purchase additional cost will be no more than $25."The School Board is grateful to the voters for passing this tax and trusting us to wisely use every dollar to benefit Washington County students," Cleveland stated. "The most important result from the tax revenue is that it will provide the Washington County School District with a steady income that is independent of annual fluctuating funds appro-priated by the Florida Legislature. The School District will be able to plan and budget for future technology and construction projects knowing that there is a stable revenue to fund these projects."The money cannot be used for stadiums or constructions projects unrelated to educational purposes. It will not be used to directly support athletics. In terms of the 10-year commitment voters have made in sup-port of the tax, Taylor said residents may express their input regarding slated projects and the use of the revenue at regular meetings and at budget meetings."The School Board looks forward to working with the teachers and staff in our schools to identify school based projects that will positively impact instruction," Cleveland concluded. "We are con-fident that at the end of the ten years the voters will be proud of the impact these tax funds have made in our School District."

Rackleff said he didnt have a comment on Peters decision not to concede, but said he ran a good campaign and congratulated him. Ive lost elections and Ive won elections,Ž Rack-leff said. Losing elections is never easy.ŽIm delighted to be the Democratic nominee for the 2nd Congressional Dis-trict,Ž said Rackleff while celebrating the win in Tal-lahassee. Brandon ran an excellent campaign. That creates a tight election.ŽIn Bay County, Peters won by a large margin of 4,548 votes compared to Rackleffs 2,956, a differ-ence of 20 percent.Peters, a legal mediator who campaigned on a higher minimum wage and ending lobbying, said through a spokesman he plans to release a statement Wednesday on how theyll further proceed and con-gratulated Rackleff.Rackleff goes on to face Republican incumbent and Panama City resident Neal Dunn in the November gen-eral election. Rackleff, who campaigned on protecting health care for constituents and funding education, said hell focus on holding Dunn accountable for the votes hes made in Washington on the campaign trail into November. Hes got a lot of votes hes cast that are just awful,Ž Rackleff said in an interview Monday.While he spent the primary campaign gathering Democrat voters, Rackleff said hell be focusing on independents, and even Republicans who he said are fed up with President Donald Trump, but are especially unhappyŽ with Dunn, who Rackleff said has advanced policies that hurt working families.Dunn declined to comment on the Democratic primary and candidates but said the district tends to favor Republicans. He is gearing up for the general election.Well get our names out, signs out, get the issues out that were working on,Ž Dunn said. And of course, still have to work, still got a day job as a Congressman.ŽOne of Rackleffs biggest concerns, healthcare, is also one Dunn is invested in, but for different reasons. If re-elected Dunn said he sees a way forward withŽ repeal-ing the Affordable Care Act.Dunns platforms also includes veteran issues and continuing to grow the economy, he said.The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 6.Rackle wins Democratic primaryBob Rackleff is a Democratic candidate in Floridas District 2 congressional race. [JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] Tom Urban and Jim Saunders News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in a legal fight about whether voters should cast ballots in November on a proposed constitutional amendment aimed at ending greyhound racing at pari-mutuel facilities.The hearing came after Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers this month sided with the Florida Greyhound Association, a group of breeders, owners and trainers, and ruled that the proposal should not go on the ballot because it was misleading. The state appealed Gievers ruling, setting up the Supreme Court arguments little more than two months before the Nov. 6 general election.Jordan Pratt, a state deputy solicitor general, disputed that the proposal is misleading and urged justices to overturn Gievers decision. Backers of the measure, known as Amendment 13, sat in part of the courtroom listening to the arguments and said afterward that the measure should go before voters.This amendment should go and be voted upon,Ž said Stephen Turner of the pro-amendment Committee to Protect Dogs. Its clear that the people have a right to choose whether they want a gambling activity of greyhound racing, which is cruel to animals, to continue. Its that simple.ŽBut former Supreme Court Justice Major Hard-ing, representing the Florida Greyhound Asso-ciation, told the court that the ballot title and sum-mary --the wording that voters see when they go to the polls --did not prop-erly disclose information about the effects of the amendment. Harding and Jack Cory, a lobbyist for the association, said that means the proposal should be kept off the ballot.The vague ballot language and the vague title do not disclose everything to the people of the state of Florida thats included in the proposed amend-ment,Ž Cory said after the hearing.The Florida Constitu-tion Revision Commission this spring placed the proposed dog-racing ban on the November ballot after years of legislative debates about the future of greyhound racing in the state. The 37-member commission has unique authority to place proposed consti-tutional amendments on the ballot, but its propos-als this year have faced a series of legal challenges.The Supreme Court is focused on the wording of the ballot title and summary to make sure they accurately reflect the effects of the proposal. Gievers ruling cited a series of problems with the wording, describing the proposed amendment as misleading and inac-curate and incomplete, while adding up to a hide the ball, fly a false flag and outright trickera-tion, ŽThe ballot title and summary say: ENDS DOG RACING. --Phases out commercial dog racing in connection with wagering by 2020. Other gaming activities are not affected.ŽBut a major point of discussion during Wednesdays arguments was part of the broader text of the proposed amendment that says, The humane treatment of animals is a fundamen-tal value of the people of the State of Florida.Ž Harding said the ballot title and summary fail to disclose that the amend-ment would make the humane treatment of animals a fundamental value.Ž As a result, he said, voters would not be informed that the provision is included in the potential constitutional changes.The people will not know that they are incorporating that in the Constitution if it is not in the ballot title and the summary, because that is all that is on the ballot,Ž Harding said.Supreme Court weighs dog racing amendmentBy Tom Nordlie University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural SciencesGAINESVILLE „ In the wake of Hurricane Irma, economists with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences realized that their UF/IFAS Extension colleagues needed a better system for reporting dam-ages and losses suffered by producers … something faster, more focused, more standardized.Today, that better system is in place.A team with the UF/IFAS food and resource econom-ics department has created a comprehensive online assessment form thats ready for use following a hurricane, flood, drought, wildfire or other large-scale disaster, said Christa Court, an assistant scientist with the department and co-developer of the form.After the danger has passed, UF/IFAS Exten-sion agents will go into the field to make first-hand observations and interview producers,Ž Court said. This information is critical to relief efforts … state and federal agencies rely on UF/IFAS Extension to do this work because our agents have the expertise and the contacts to collect the raw data thats needed.ŽAccess to the assessment form will be made available to appropriate UF/ IFAS Extension personnel following a disaster, she said. Selected field agents representing the U.S. Department of Agriculture are expected to participate as well, she said.Once the UF/IFAS Extension agents have gathered information, it will be forwarded to Court and her colleagues so that they can develop a sum-mary of the estimated asset damages and commodity losses. These estimates will be provided to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Florida offices of the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA), to help guide relief and recovery efforts.Court said the new assessment form met expectations during trial runs. Initial reactions from colleagues at state agencies suggest that the form meets their needs as well.New UF/IFAS crop-damage assessment system will speed reporting after disasters

Bare“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett John McCain represented Arizona in the United States Senate, but his influenceon the nationwas profound and positive. His death is a loss for us as surely as its a loss for our nation. Sen. McCain was one of the increasingly rare members of Congress who knew the realities of combat. He served in Vietnam as a Navy pilot and he suffered as few others have during his captivity by the North Vietnamese after he was shot down over Hanoi. He never fully recovered from all the injuries he suffered at the hands of his captors, who tortured him. It gave him a unique perspective in the congressional debate over the use of enhanced interrogation methods.Ž He firmly believed there is no room for such barbarism in a nation that has long led the world in establishing humane treatment standards for prisoners of war. As chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. McCain was a frequent presence in the places where our troops were deployed, putting his own boots on the ground in combat zones around the world. When this country sent troops into harms way, he knew exactly what the implications were. He made a large and indelible mark on his nation, becoming the conscience of the Senate and a beacon of sanity for those of us who believe politics has gone dreadfully astray. Sadly, as Sen. Susan Collins, a Maine Republican, observed, The lions are gone. The lions of the Senate are gone. It is very sad.Ž Its sad and increasingly dangerous for the nation, because too many of those old lions have been replaced by chickens and hyenas. Politics is po isonously paralyzed as fealty to party has become more important to too many lawmakers than loyalty to country and the pragmatism that has long been essential to governance. In a speech last fall at the Naval Academy, Sen. McCain neatly summed up our national predicament: How did we end up here? Why do many Americans ignore our moral and historical knowledge and seek escape from the world weve led so successfully? There are many wise answers to those questions. My own is: We are asleep to the necessity of our leadership, and to the opportunities and real dangers of this world. We are asleep in our echo chambers, where our views are always affirmed and information that contradicts them is always fake. We are asleep in our polarized politics, which exaggerates our differences, looks for scapegoats instead of answers, and insists we get all our way all the time from a system of government based on compromise, principled cooperation and restraint.Ž Perhaps as we mark his passing, more of us can heed that wisdom. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Fayetteville (N.C.) Observer, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Senates last lion is gone ANOTHER VIEW As the academic year starts, we can expect to hear new tales of censorship at colleges and persecution of faculty who go astray from prescribed views. Much of the storytelling will take place on Fox News Channel and in other conservative outlets selling the notion that colleges have become islands of intolerance run by liberal thought police. The reality is a whole lot tamer than that. A study by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, found only 1 percent of students would consider violently disrupting a guest speaker they find objectionable. Students who so engage should be arrested and booted out of school, but 1 percent is very small. FIRE, which advocates for free speech in higher education, also found 42 percent of student respondents said they might attend a speech by someone with whom they strongly disagree. I wish that percentage were higher but wonder how many older Fox News viewers would be that open-minded. Though the notion that suppression of mainly conservative views on campus runs rampant is greatly overblown, there have been enough cases to cause concern. Headlines such as Princeton Takes a Stand for Free Speech on CampusŽ are good news but also a recognition that such a stand could not be taken for granted. Three years ago, Princeton faculty members „ liberals and conservatives alike „ adopted most of the freedom of expressionŽ principles issued by the University of Chicago some months before. It is not the proper role of the university,Ž Princeton said in an official statement, to attempt to shield individuals from ideas and opinions they find unwelcome, disagreeable or even deeply offensive.Ž Neither Princeton nor Chicago deemed the freedom absolute. And thats why the University of California, Berkeley, was justified in canceling the speaking engagement last year of the incendiary right-winger Milo Yiannopoulos. The night before, riots by who-knows-who caused considerable property damage. Yiannopoulos is a professional provocateur who was running an alt-right entertainment business. He offered no redeeming social value worth forcing Berkeley to spend huge sums protecting him. Berkeley College Republicans obviously hadinvited Yiannopoulos with the intention of pulling the lefts chains. Its too bad the left so often lets its chains be pulled. When a truly repulsive speaker comes on campus, large, noisy demonstrations are the most counterproductive response. They inflate the speakers importance and provide him or her enormous free publicity. There are two sophisticated ways to register discontent. The best is mockery. The devil ... cannot endure to be mocked,Ž wrote Thomas More five centuries ago. The second is to totally ignore the speaking event. The showman fears nothing more than a halfempty hall. Imagine if Berkeley students had given Yiannopoulos no mind, playing guitars on the lawn as he did his act inside. It also wouldhelp to distinguish between offensive clown shows and presentations by conservatives who are merely controversial. Sure, someone like columnist Ben Shapiro may express some unpleasant views, but stopping him from speaking on campus as was done at DePaul University? That was insane.College free speech stories distortedAfter meeting with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Susan Collins emerged to announce he regards the Roe v. Wade decision as settled law.Ž This comes as an apparent relief to the Maine Republican, who favors abortion rights. But those who hope the court will uphold Roe would be rash to assume it would be safe with Justice Kavanaugh. Settled lawŽ sounds solid, but like ice, its a substance that can quickly turn to vapor. Roe is settledŽ in the sense that it has survived for 45 years and the court has passed up opportunities to ditch it. But being settled doesnt mean its survival is assured, under the court of 2019 or 2029. The pertinent question for the nominee is whether Roe is entitled to be treated as not merely a precedent, which the court should not lightly reverse, but a super-precedent,Ž which the court should not reverse, period. All courts defer to previous decisions, adhering to them unless there is good reason not to „ a concept known as stare decisis. In this vein, the justices repeatedly havepreserved the core elements of Roe. In 1992, the court said overruling Roe would do profound and unnecessary damage to the courts legitimacy and to the nations commitment to the rule of law.Ž In a 2000 case, Judge J. Michael Luttig of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals invoked that 1992 decision, which allowed some restrictions but affirmed a womans right to terminate her pregnancy in its early stages.Ž Luttig interpreted it to be a decision of super-stare decisis with respect to a womans fundamental right to choose whether or not to proceed with a pregnancyŽ „ a position, he noted, that the Supreme Court later not merely confirmed, but reinforced.Ž The conclusion was especially noteworthy coming from a highly respected conservative who was considered for the Supreme Court by President George W. Bush. Most judges and scholars agree some Supreme Court decisions are so fundamental to modern law and life that they are immune from reconsideration „ such as Brown v. Board of Education, which banned segregated public schools, and the 1871 ruling that paper money is not unconstitutional. Maybe these decisions did not strictly follow the text of the Constitution or the intent of the Framers, but scrapping them would cause too much trouble to be justified. Not everyone thinks Roe belongs in that company. University of Chicago law professor David Strauss, who defends the right to abortion it upheld, wrote in 2010 the decision should not be treated as sacrosanct. Protracted opposition, even if it does not prevail, counts for something,Ž he said, arguing Roe cannot be put on the same level as decisions ... that were initially controversial but have now gained near-universal acceptance.Ž Now, though, he tells me, Appointees of presidents who made a point of attacking Roe have voted to uphold it. That kind of resilience ought to give Roe a much greater claim not to be overruled.ŽKavanaugh, Roe and settled law S t e p h e n C h a p m a n Stephen Chapman Froma Harrop

Director Kevin Russell and the theatre department is currently in full rehearsals for fall production You Can't Take It With You. The play will take the stage at 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 23 and Thursday, October 25. Tick-ets will go on sale at Chipley High School, 1545 Brickyard Road, to the general public on Monday, October 1. Tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for students.Following two successful afternoon of auditions, Rus-sell is casting the following students: Nevaeh Gray as Penny Sycamore, Makayla Kopinski as Essie Carmichael, Jordan Dominguez as Rheba, Elijah Wells as Paul Sycamore, Jeromy Hilty as Mr. De Pinna, Gabriel Jimenez as Ed Carmichael, Josh Drake as Donald, Noah Burdeshaw as Martin "Grandpa" Van-derhof, Eyrica Pettis as Alice Sycamore, Jarvis Davis as Wilbur Henderson, Devin Sublett as Tony Kirby, Ethan Parker as Bolus Kolenkhov, Lily Anderson as Gay Wellington, Nathanael Banta as Anthony Kirby, Elijah Hooks as the man, George Roul-hac as Jim, Waylon Guyer as Mac, and Julia Shaffer as the Grand Duchess Olga Katrina and Caitlin Shackleford will serve as the production stage manager. About the play: At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delight-ful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that mar-riage with Tony is out of the question.The Sycamores, how-ever, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Syca-mores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earn-ing her living as a waitress. No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax.For more information, e-mail chipleyhstheatre@gmail.com, or call 850-6100.Cast announced for CHPs You Cant Take It With YouŽ Trivia FunŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

She praise did the jurys decision to convict Oliver of murder.WASHINGTONTrump teases about successor to White House counsel A day after announcing the departure of his White House counsel, President Donald Trump teased Thursday that hes excited about his choice for a replacement but isnt ready to share his new law-yers name.Trump said Wednesday on Twitter that Don McGahn will leave in the fall. He has been a consequential insider on Trumps legal team and a key figure in the administrations handling of the federal inves-tigation into Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign collusion. I am very excited about the person who will be taking the place of Don McGahn as White House Councel!Ž Trump tweeted Thursday. HARRISBURG, PA.Bishop backs victim fund over abuse lawsuits in Pa. Roman Catholic officials in Pennsylvania began lining up publicly with a key state legis-lative ally Thursday in backing the creation of a victims com-pensation fund as an alternative to allowing victims in decades-old child sexual abuse cases to sue in court.Erie Bishop Lawrence Persico said he would collaborate in the creation of a compensation fund that is administered by a neutral third party, while the Philadelphia Archdiocese and the Harrisburg Diocese sug-gested they are open to the idea.Allowing lawsuits to be heard in courts, however, would force bigger payouts by the church and force the churches to disclose more, say victim advocates.SEABROOK, N.H.Driver in fatal crash accused of stalking victims wifeSometimes Catrina Costello would allegedly yell obscenities and stare at Stephen VanDalinda and his wife, Erin. Other times she would shine a green laser beam toward them or threaten them with her two pit bills.The feud between the two families, according to neighbors and court records, goes back several years. It came to head Wednesday night when Costello allegedly ran the couple down as they walked their dog on a quiet, two-lane street near their house.Sixty-four-year-old Stephen VanDalinda, and his 61-year-old wife, Erin, were hit just after 6 p.m. in Seabrook, a town of about 9,000 near the Massachusetts border.GENEVAUN Syria envoy ” oats idea of evacuating Idlib civiliansFearing a military offensive, the U.N. envoy for Syria proposed Thursday that civil-ians holed up in the rebel-held region of Idlib could evacuate to government areas „ a move that would send many back into parts of Syria they once fled in its long civil war.U.N. envoy Staffan de Mistura expressed fears of a perfect stormŽ that could have a devastating impact on nearly 3 million people „ nearly half of whom arrived from elsewhere in Syria „ in the region largely controlled by al-Qaida-linked fighters. It came as Russia, President Bashar Assads strongest mili-tary backer, announced major military drills in the Mediterra-nean Sea amid growing tensions over the enclave.A man watches dollar rates outside an exchange house Thursday in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Argentinas Central Bank increased its benchmark interest rate to 60 percent Thursday as the peso hit a new all-time low.

[PATRICK SEMANSKY/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO]Former VP Biden among those paying tribute to senator at Arizona funeralBy Melissa Daniels and Nicholas RiccardiThe Associated PressPHOENIX „ A former vice president, an NFL star and other friends remembered Sen. John McCain as a true American heroŽ „ and a ter-rible driver with a wicked sense of humor and love of a good battle „ at a crowded church service Thursday for the maverick politician that ended to the tune of Frank Sinatras My Way.ŽAddressing an estimated 3,500 mourners, former Vice President Joe Biden recalled the sheer joy that crossed his face when he knew he was about to take the stage of the Senate floor and start a fight.ŽBiden, a Democrat who was among the fast friends the Republican senator made across the aisle, said he thought of McCain as a brother, with a lot of family fights.ŽThe service for the states-man, former prisoner of war and two-time presidential candidate unfolded at North Phoenix Baptist Church after a motorcade bearing McCains body made its way from the state Capitol past Arizonans waving American flags and campaign-style McCain signs.Family members watched in silence as uniformed mili-tary members removed the flag-draped casket from a black hearse and carried it into the church. McCain died Saturday of brain cancer at 81.McCains longtime chief of staff Grant Woods, a former Arizona attorney general, drew laughs with a eulogy in which he talked about McCains terribly bad driv-ingŽ and his sense of humor, which included calling the Leisure World retirement community Seizure World.ŽWoods also recalled the way McCain would introduce him to new staff members by saying, Youll have to fire half of them.ŽThe churchs senior pastor, Noe Garcia, pronounced McCain a true American hero.ŽThe service brought to a close two days of mourning for the six-term senator and 2008 GOP presidential nominee in his home state.A motorcade then took McCains body to the airport, where it was put aboard a military plane that took off for Washington for a lyingin-state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, a service at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, and burial at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on Sunday.Twenty-four sitting U.S. senators and four former senators attended the church service, according to McCains office.Neither Biden nor other speakers uttered President Donald Trumps name, but Biden made what some saw as a veiled reference to the presi-dent when he talked about McCains character and how he parted company with those who lacked the basic values of decency and respect, know-ing this project is bigger than yourself.ŽBiden said McCain could not stand the abuse of power wherever he saw it, in whatever form, in whatever country.ŽDabbing his eyes at times, Biden also referred to his own sons death from cancer, saying of the disease, Its brutal, its relentless, its unforgiving.Ž And he spoke directly to McCains widow, Cindy McCain, in the front row: You were his ballast.ŽAt the end of the nearly 90-minute ceremony, McCains casket was wheeled out of the church to My Way,Ž in tribute to a politician known for following his own path based on his personal principles.McCain clashed openly with Trump, who mocked McCain for getting captured during the Vietnam War. Two White House officials said McCains family had asked that Trump not attend the funeral services.The memorial was laced with humor and featured a racially and ethnically diverse roster of speakers and other participants.Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who is black, talked about his unlikely connection with McCain, a big fan of the states sports teams.While from very different worlds, we developed a meaningful friendship,Ž said Fitzgerald, adding that McCain didnt judge others on their skin color, gender or bank account but on their character. As the 11-vehicle motorcade with a 17-motorcycle police escort made its way toward the church, people along the 8-mile (13-kilometer) route held signs that read simply McCain,Ž and cars on the other side of the highway stopped or slowed to a crawl in apparent tribute.Friends call McCain hero, maverickFormer Vice President Joe Biden gives a tribute during memorial service at North Phoenix Baptist Church for Sen.

Chapel at 6 p.m. for a time of praise and worship to begin the new semester. After a brief introduction and welcome by BCM Director Amanda Carnley, the first BCM event of the new semester was underway.Contemporary Worship and College Pastor Jonathan Blair from Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Dothan, Alabama led the Night of Worship with a talented group of musicians and vocalists at his side. They all serve on various praise teams at Ridgecrest as well as in other capacities at the church throughout the week. Two members of the praise team, Andrew and Lauren West, felt right at home on the stage in the R. G. Lee Chapel where they performed and led worship many times as BCF students. As Blair led the students in songs of adoration to the Lord, he encouraged them not to just sing the words on the screen, but to worship freely. He also invited BCF music majors pre-paring as worship leaders to join him at the front of the stage to assist in leading worship.Many BCF students voiced their hope that the Night of Worship will continue to be a regular event on campus. It provided a fun and fruitful weekend activity as both new and well-seasoned BCF students were adjusting to life on campus and away from home. According to Carnley, this was a great way to begin the semester coming together as a body of believers, raising voices in worship and praise to the one that gives students, staff, and faculty the reason to pursue careers in the areas of leadership and ministry that He has called them to.For more information on upcoming student life events at The Baptist College of Flor-ida,call 800-328-2660 ext. 557 or visit the website at www.baptistcollege.edu.BCF holds Night of WorshipSubmit your sign of faith to photos@ chipleypaper.com.
