The final resolution requires Washington County Clerk of Court Lora Bell, in both her individual and capacity of Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, to pay attorney Michelle Jordan the settlement sum."As to the final judgment, we are very pleased with the outcome in this matter," Tiffany R. Cruz, of the Law Offices of Friedman & Abra-hamsen out of Tallahassee, wrote in a statement Thursday. "Our Constitution protects the rights of citizens to have and express information about the government, whether the government agrees with that information or not. To allow the government to violate those clearly established rights without challenge would lead to tyranny. I am proud of Ms. Blankenship Jordan for pursuing this case to ensure that government officials are held accountable."A lawsuit filed in U.S. Dis-trict Court late last year alleged the Washington County Clerk of Courts Office were in violation of the First and FourteenthAmendments by deleting comments and blocking access to the offices Facebook page, which the clerks office suspended in October 2016.According to the agreement, Bell or her insurer will pay the sum to the Friedman & Abrahamsen trust account within 20 days of the date of receipt of the executed original release. Both Jordan and Bell will bear their own attorneys' court fees.$85k settlement agreement reached in Jordan vs Bell By Diane M.

However, the council will not seek to increase the millage rate when the resolution is adopted.Resolution 18-148 will have its final vote at Vernon City Council regu-lar meeting to be held 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17 at Vernon Town Hall, 2808 Yellow Jacket Road.Vernon adopts tentative millageBy Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ A hearing to discuss several pending motions in the criminal case against Greg Wilson was postponed Thursday and the defense has withdrawn its request to have one charge dismissed, claiming the state failed to let Wilson recant his sworn statement.A follow-up court date has been scheduled for Sept. 12. No reason was given for the postponement.Prosecutor Jack Campbell had been scheduled Thurs-day to ask Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet to bar any irrelevantŽ defenses at trial while Wilsons defense attorneys sought to restrict the use of a key piece of evidence „ the video that shows his role in the passing of notes between two inmates. Wilson faces a charge of introduction of contraband into the Bay County Jail related to the video and a misdemeanor charge of perjury for a denial of his involvement in an informal proceeding.Among those subpoenaed by the prosecution to testify at Thursday's hearing were Wilsons former legal counsel, Jim White, and a prominent businessman, Derwin White, who backed Wilsons campaign for the State Attorneys Office, according to court records.The events that led to the two being subpoenaed began with Wilsons current defense attorney, Lisa Anderson, filing a motion Aug. 30 to dismiss the perjury charge, claiming Wilson attempted to recant his statements to law enforcement but was not allowed to do so.Anderson told the court that Wilsons denial of helping the inmates pass kites,Ž or folded pieces of paper, had been taken on a Friday at the end of a business day. The following Monday morning at the first opportunity available,Ž Wilsons then-attorney, Jim White, attempted to contact BCSO to recant Wilsons statement. It wasnt until later in the afternoon that BCSO responded with what Anderson described as a refusal to accept Wilsons recantation.Attorney White advised (BCSO Maj. Jimmy Stanford) that (Wilson) wanted to recant his previous statement,Ž Anderson wrote. Stanford denied attorney Whites request and advised that he had all that he needed from (Wilson). Investigator Stanford did not allow (Wilson) to recant his statement.ŽAnderson went on to argue that Wilson was unaware his arrest was imminent at the time he was trying to recant, and the refusal was a violation of Wilsons right to due process. However, documents filed by prosecutor Campbell the same day, anticipating the recantation defense,Ž painted a different picture of what happened in the days between Wilson's sworn statement and his request to recant.The known testimony is that previous counsel, Jim White, contacted (Stanford) three days after the perjured statement and after Major Stanford had informed (Wilsons) friends that an arrest for perjury was imminent,Ž Campbell wrote. Stanford discussed with Mr. White that any recantation or truthful statement concerning his passing documents within the Bay County Jail would essentially be a confession to a felony. Mr. White indicated that he would discuss the issue with his client. No other overtures or attempts to recant were ever extended.ŽOne of the friendsŽ Campbell referred to is later identified in the motion as Derwin White „ vice president of GAC contractors, a supporter of Wilsons campaign and the father of the two inmates Wilson is accused of helping pass notes while incarcerated. Campbell warned that a recantation defense would entail both Jim White and Derwin White becoming witnesses in the case and subpoenaed them after seeing the motion to dismiss, according to court records.Anderson later filed notice of withdrawal of her motion to dismiss the perjury charge. A reason was not given in the court records. With the hearing now set for Wednesday, it was unclear whether either of the men would be called again but there was no record of a second subpoena on file at the courthouse.The case is still slated to go before a jury Sept. 17.Wilson, 46, is charged with helping the two inmates „ sisters Clista Robbins and Christy White „ pass the notes while meeting with him at separate times in an attorney interview room. When questioned under oath about his actions, Wilson categorically denied the allegations as absolutely false,Ž but at that time he was not aware of the video capturing the events.One of the defenses pursued by Wilson has been that his arrest was a case of political retaliation, or selective prosecution,Ž because BCSO obtained legal advice from his former boss and political rival, State Attorney Glenn Hess, before installing the cameras.Wilson was the chief assistant attorney for seven years under Hess. As the primary elections approached in August 2016, Wilson abruptly resigned, saying Hess did not fulfill an agreement to bow out at the end of his second term and hand Wilson a shot at the office.Wilson took on his former boss to be top prosecutor over Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson and Washington counties, and lost to Hess by a 58 percent to 42 percent margin, but vowed to make another run for state attorney in 2020.It was about a year later Wilson became the subject of a BCSO investigation at the Bay County Jail after officers heard recorded jailhouse calls they suspected of involving controlled substances. The calls led jail personnel to hide cameras in an attorney interview room in September 2017, which captured Wilson apparently assisting the two sisters pass notes.At the next hearing, Anderson will be asking for the video to be inadmissible at trial because capturing the video violated attorney-client privilege. And Campbell will be asking the court to bar any defense impertinent to the underlying criminal charges.Wilson team drops motion to dismiss Wilson Wausau Possum Festival & Fun Day. This year, the group had children in mind. We had thought about doing some small lap quilts for abused children,Ž said quilter Shirley Walsingham, who has been a member of Wausau Quil-ters since 2010. But we knew we couldnt make a dent in that situation.ŽWith a little creative brainstorming, one member suggested combining stuffed animals with the quilts donation in order to impact more children.The sheriffs office applauded the gesture.From providing a bear to a child during a car crash to encountering a family dealing with tragedy or grief, a small gesture, such as a stuffed animal or blanket allows law enforcement the abil-ity to provide comfort and lessens the childs anxiety,Ž a WCSO news release stated.The quilters were able to donate about 50 stuffed animals in addition to the lap quilts.We just try to help the community,Ž Walsingham said, noting recognition pales in com-parison to the rewarding feeling that comes from doing a good dead. The deputy said donations of this kind can make all the difference in the world of a child.ŽAnd, its that same difference that makes quilting special to the quilter and the person receiving it. The love that goes into it usually you think of what they like, their per-sonality, or the colors they like,Ž Walsingham added. Its a gift given from the heart.ŽThe all-volunteer group meet s at Wausau Town Hall.

Hinkle's Aug. 24 pretrial ruling for a sum-mary judgment for Jordan and denied Bell qualified immunity, Bells legal team has since decided the settlement is a more appropriate response."After careful consideration of the issues related to the Courts order, as well as the pos-sibility that an appeal would not produce a dif-ferent result, we decided not to seek review of the trial courts determination," Bell wrote in a statement Thursday. "As expressed before, the issues led us to seek a judicial decision on what remains a less than clear situation. However, if unsuccessful, an appeal would have resulted in a significantly greater award of attorneys fees to the Plaintiff and her attorney, without a significant change in the alleged damages.""As it stands, the settlement itself primarily represents the attorneys fees to which Plaintiffs attorney would likely be entitled, based on the representations of the Plaintiff and her counsel. Rather than risk the possibility of any further expense, and with the guidance of our counsel and carrier, we consid-ered the best option to be to reach a resolution, put this matter fully behind us and continue to keep our focus on serving the citizens of Washington County." 85KFrom Page A1

** Washington County News | Saturday, September 8, 2018 A3 LOCAL & STATE Washington CountyBy Eryn Dion747-5069 | @PCNHErynDion edion@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY BEACH „ The diagnosis of four human cases of West Nile virus in Bay County and three in Panama City Beach in a little more than a month understandably raised some red flags with readers, partic ularly after a soggy August left pools of standing water just about everywhere, creat-ing a breeding ground for mosquitoes.Hoping to learn more about the disease that hadnt been seen in Bay County in more than a decade, Pat Spruell wrote to Bay Asked, We Answered, asking: How did they find out about the three cases of West Nile in Panama City Beach?ŽI am curious because the paper said the three cases were found in Panama City Beach and that is where I live,Ž Spruell said when con-tacted for the story. I find mosquitoes in my house and wonder how diligent I need to be in hunting them down. I notice when my cats come in the house they have mosquitoes following them in. These insects could be biting me while I sleep. Also wondering what made the people get checked? In other words what symp-toms do we look for?ŽThe good news for Spruell and others worry-ing about West Nile virus is that most people who contract the disease wont ever know they have it, as in about 80 percent of cases the disease produces no symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Even if symptoms do develop, theyre usually relatively minor and the symptoms to look for are fever, headache, body and joint ache, vomiting and a rash. If those symptoms develop after exposure to mosquitoes, then its time to get to a doctor.In very rare cases, about one in 150, a person might develop a more serious form of encephalitis or meningitis from the West Nile virus. The suffix itisŽ means swelling or inflam-mation, so here were talking about swelling of the brain (encephalitis) and swelling of the mem-branes around the brain and spinal cord (meningitis). Symptoms like a high fever, neck stiffness, disorientation, vision problems or numbness usually indicate a serious West Nile infection. According to the CDC, 10 percent of those who develop the more serious infection die and recovery can take weeks, or even months. Theres no medication or vaccine that treats West Nile, and hos-pitals usually will treat the symptoms with painkillers and intravenous fluids.West Nile virus actu-ally is endemic to Florida, which means its common in the area. As such, health care providers or laborato-ries with a confirmed West Nile case have to report their case to the health department where the patient resides by the end of the following business day. West Nile is con-firmed through a series of tests administered when a patient exhibiting match-ing symptoms also has indicated that they have been recently exposed to mosquitoes, though blood banks also test for West Nile virus and can find cases there as well.While the exact details of how the West Nile cases were discovered is protected by HIPAA, it would be reasonable to assume, because these were human cases, that the patients developed symptoms after expo-sure to mosquitoes, saw a health care provider who administered the proper tests, made the diagnosis and then alerted the Bay County Health Department. Because West Nile is primarily carried in birds and passed on to mosquitoes, the local mosquito cont rol divisions have surveillance stations throughout the county with chickens kept outside that are routinely tested.As far as hunting down mosquitoes indoors, West Nile is, in the Southeast, typically carried by the Culex quinquefasciatus species of mosquito, commonly known as the southern house mos-quito.Ž Theyre night biters, which can make them extra tricky to remove, as no one wants to wear a layer of mosquito repellent to bed. The best way to prevent mosquito bites indoors is to prevent mosquitoes from getting indoors, but if thats not possible, dishes of soapy water can attract and trap them. Certain smells, such as lavender and garlic, have been known to repel mosquitoes too, but lavender also can be toxic to cats. Several companies also make mosquito repel-lent bracelets that can be worn indoors to keep them away, as well as mosquito nets that go over beds if the mosquitoes are a seri-ous issue.How is West Nile diagnosed, reported?By Jim Saunders News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE With school choice a hot-but-ton issue in Florida, the state Supreme Court on Wednesday plunged into a debate about whether voters should cast ballots in November on a proposed constitutional amendment that could help lead to more charter schools.Justices peppered attorneys on both sides of the issue with questions about whether the proposal, placed on the ballot by the state Constitution Revision Commission, would be misleading to voters. The League of Women Voters of Florida has challenged the proposal, contending it should be blocked from moving forward.Ron Meyer, an attorney for the League of Women Voters, said people would be fooledŽ by the ballot title and summary --the part of the proposal voters would see when they go to the polls.Our problem is that the voter presenting at the voting booth is not being told whats happening here, is not being given an explanatory purpose,Ž Meyer said.But state Deputy Solici-tor General Daniel Bell disputed that the ballot title and summary would be misleading to voters.The only question before this court today is whether the ballot lan-guage at issue accurately and clearly discloses the chief purpose of the amendment ƒ and we would submit that it does,Ž Bell said.The state appealed after Leon County Circuit Judge John Cooper ruled last month that the proposed constitutional amendment should be knocked off the ballot. In part pointing to the failure to use the term charter schools,Ž Cooper wrote that the proposal fails to inform voters of the chief purpose and effect of this proposal.ŽThe Supreme Court quickly took up the issue as elections officials pre-pare to start sending out general-election ballots to voters this month. With justices away from Tallahassee because of an educational seminar for judges, the court took the unusual step Wednesday of hearing arguments in a courtroom in West Palm Beach.The 37-member Constitution Revision Commission meets every 20 years and has unique powers to place proposed constitutional changes on the ballot. But the educa-tion amendment comes amid heavy debate in the state about expansion of charter schools and voucher-like programs that supporters say give students more educa-tional choicesThe proposed amendment, which would appear on the ballot as Amendment 8, would impose eight-year term limits on school board members and would require the promotion of civic literacyŽ in public schools.But a third provision that drew the legal challenge from the League of Women Voters of Florida would allow the state to operate, control and supervise public schools not established by the school board.ŽCounty school boards and charter-school operators have repeatedly battled in recent years about whether new charter schools should be allowed. While the proposed constitutional wording does not specifically mention charter schools, it could open the door to the state allowing charter schools outside of the control of local school boards. Charter schools are public schools but are typically operated by private entities.The Supreme Court, as is customary, did not indicate Wednesday how it would rule. But justices Barbara Pariente and Peggy Quince asked questions that appeared clearly skeptical of the states arguments.My problem with this, and it was I think what the circuit court zeroed in on, is whether the ballot title and summary establishes the ƒ true meaning of the amendment,Ž Pariente said. It is pretty clear from looking at the briefs that the true purpose was to take away responsibili-ties from the school boards and transfer it to either the Legislature, the state, to a private commission.ŽSupreme Court digs into education amendment Mosquitoes are organized for counting at Beach Mosquito Control. Beach Mosquito Control has set up traps around Panama City Beach, and brings the dead mosquitoes back to the lab so they can be identi“ ed. Different species of mosquitoes carry different diseases.

Bare“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Congressional committees recently brought the top executives of opioid manufacturers to Washington to explain their role in Americas opioid epidemic. Sadly, the executives largely shifted the blame elsewhere. At its peak in 2012, physicians wrote 282 million opioid prescriptions „ enough foreight in 10 Americans, Politico reported. Fortunately, the latest statistics suggest the prescription surge has slowed dramatically. But the surge drove home a somber reality in this country: Opioids have been Americas national pill. The fact is that other developed nations have not experienced the spikes in opioid use, opioid abuse and opioid-related overdoses that we have in this country. Thats led hundreds of cities and localities to sue opioid manufacturers „ in part to obtain funding to treat opioid abuse victims. If officials and authorities would have followed the money, it should have been easy to spot the tidal wave of opioid use. In a statement reported by the Hill website, Rep. Gregg Harper, a Mississippi Republican, questioned why drug distributors repeatedly failed to report suspicious orders of opioids or exercise effective controlsŽ as more and more pills flooded America. The answer seems pretty clear: because tremendous profits were being made by keeping quiet „ and keeping the pills flowing. The opioid epidemic also wasfueled by a dangerous misperception that opioids carried low risks of addiction. To combat this, a trade association for the opioid manufacturers said they support policies that fully reveal the effects of opioids and decrease the likelihood of them being overprescribed. Its critical our elected leaders dont overreact to what we now know about the need to control opioid use; they cant go to the other extreme of making opioids nearly impossible to obtain. Politico identified some of the potential unintended consequences of overreacting to the opioid crisis; it would increase the difficulty of obtaining relief for patients with valid pain issues „ and individuals nearing the end of life „ and distract us from focusing on the need for more non-drug therapies. These are all good points. But the bottom line hasnt changed. The reason so many officials are now scrambling to act „ and at the risk of doing so in overzealous fashion „ is because too few of them took any action as the opioid crisis gathered momentum. Why werent questions asked? Why wasnt oversight done? Why werent whistleblowers taken seriously instead of being turned away, as reports suggest? When there is an explosion in the use of a particular drug, a governmental agency should know about it right away „ and it should report what it knows to Congress right away. The overdose epidemic is a widespread failure, and government must surely take its share of the blame for it. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Ocala Star-Banner, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Opioid crisis grew uncheckedANOTHER VIEW Our rapidly growing incivility started with the invention of the telephone-answering machine. Before the answering machines widespread adoption, people answered their landline phones with a pleasant hello,Ž eager to learn who was calling. To be sure, says social scientist James Katz, answering machines were considered rude in the 70s. By the 90s, however, most homes had them and lots of people were using them, quite rudely, to screen calls people like my pal, Griffy. Calls to Griffys landline always made me grumpy: Hello, this is Griffy, leave a message at the beep.Ž Pick up the phone, Griffy, I know youre there!Ž Griffy demanded his friends leave messages on his machine, but always hung up on mine until the invention of the star 69Ž feature. When you punched star 69Ž into your phone keypad, youd get the number of the jerk who had last hung up on your machine. Boy, did that technology innovation escalate rudeness! I had a telephone confrontation once with a fellow who had hung up on my machine. I keyed in star 69, got his number, dialed it, then got his answering machine: Hello, this is Bill. Sally and I arent in right now ... .Ž I didnt know who the fellow was I figured hed dialed my number by mistake so I hung up. Later that day, after returning from a business meeting, I saw that someone had hung up on my machine again. I dialed star 69, got the number, dialed it, then heard, Hello, this is Bill. Sally and I arent in right now ... .Ž I hung up again. A few moments later, my phone rang. I picked it up. Hello,Ž I said. Who is this?Ž said the man. I recognized the voice. It was Bill. You called me and hung up!Ž I said. You called me and hung up!Ž said Bill. Nuh-huh!Ž I said. Yuh-huh!Ž he said. Email was another innovation that escalated rudeness. I remember reading a Wall Street Journal story about two Boston lawyers whose email exchange went viral. One lawyer, a 24-year-old woman, sent an e-mail to an older, established lawyer, declining his job offer. The older lawyer, miffed that the woman would email her rejection after shed already accepted the job offer in person, fired off an email telling her she wasnt very professional. She replied that if he were a real lawyer he would have made her sign a contract. He replied, in so many words, that she was a snot. She sent one last reply: blah, blah, blah.Ž These are just some examples of how earlier technology innovations made us ruder. And now, the era of smartphones and social media the era of nasty tweets and Facebook insults is making rudeness, reports Psychology Today, our new normal.Ž The magazine cites research, published in the journal Computers in Human Behavior, that finds technology-enabled anonymity and a lack of eye contactŽ are chief contributors to our growing incivility. To wit: Technology is making it easier than ever to be rude to our fellow man, but we must fight this impulse, or else our already overheated public discourse will become increasingly uncivil. Its not going to be easy, though. Even my parents use their answering machine to screen calls from my sisters and me. Mom and Dad, I know youre home. Please pick up the phone!The Higher Tech Gets, the Ruder We Get Tom Purcell Social media and digital tools have changed the way we live and, to some extent, the way we die. Increasingly, loved ones and notables are honored through what could be called pre-mourning. I love my husband with all my heart,Ž tweeted Cindy McCain, as it was reported that her husband, Sen. John McCain, would discontinue treatment in his battle with cancer. Daughter Meghan tweeted, Thank you for all your continued support and prayers.Ž The tweets were echoed hundreds of thousands of times in less than 24 hours. The hope, of course, was that heartfelt messages would reach the Arizona senator before his death. Before Aretha Franklins death on August 16, the Queen of Soul was similarly honored by fans via social media. According to CNNs Don Lemon, a reporter with close ties to Franklin, premourning messages from an adoring public were read aloud to the 76-year-old singer during her final hours. Back in June, when Charles Krauthammer, the acclaimed conservative columnist learned that he was dying of cancer, he wrote on The Washington Post website that he had only a few weeks to live. His last words soon reverberated on social media. I believe that the pursuit of truth and right ideas through honest debate and rigorous argument is a noble undertaking,Ž he wrote. I am grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this extraordinary nations destiny.Ž Like John McCain, Krauthammer received an enormous outpouring of pre-mourning praise from all sides of the political spectrum. Each man was noted for taking a fair and articulate approach to the issues that seem, more than ever, to divide us. Social media was active in April before the passing of Barbara Bush, the wife of one president and mother of another. The love and respect for Mrs. Bush was immediately apparent in the flood of digital messages many of which reached her before her death. Barbara Bush planned every detail of her funeral and burial, but few in modern times have orchestrated a goodbye with such grace, dignity and detail as John McCain. Some of our public heroes, such as the comedian Robin Williams, for example, are taken from us in such a way that there can be no premourning. But, as McCain demonstrated, when ones fate is clear there can be no greater source of final satisfaction than to hear and read the messages from those who care so deeply. Like most people, I have regrets,Ž wrote McCain in his farewell. But I would not trade a day of my life, in good or bad times, for the best day of anyone elses.Ž A grateful nation mourns John McCain now, but was able to reach out before his death through social media and salute him.Pre-Mourning Boosts Life Before Death Peter Funt

** Washington County News | Saturday, September 8, 2018 A7IN BRIEFMIAMISource: Haslem, Heat agree on 1-year dealUdonis Haslem is barely given the chance to play anymore, and the Miami Heat wanted him back anyway.Thats how much they value his presence.A person with knowl-edge of the negotiations said Haslem and the Heat have agreed on a one-year, $2.4 million contract that will keep him with his hometown team for a 16th season. The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been signed, though that last detail is now merely a formality.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. New US coach to be announced by end of yearThe next U.S. soccer coach will be announced by the end of the year, possibly ahead of November exhibitions against England and Italy. The coach will have to move to Chicago, work out of the federations office and speak English.Former American midfielder Earnie Stew-art is leading the search in his new role as mens national team general manager. He said Thurs-day he has six or seven candidates and denied speculation the favorite is Columbus Crew coach Gregg Berhalter.The interviews will be done by Stewart, Nico Romeijn, the U.S. Soccer Federations chief sport development officer, and Ryan Mooney, its chief soccer officer. Stewart will make a recommen-dation to the USSF board of directors.MANON, SPAINHerrada takes Spanish Vuelta lead Jesus Herrada of Spain took the overall lead of the Spanish Vuelta on Thursday as Alexandre Geniez won a 12th stage marked by a post-race crash.Geniez dominated the final sprint to clinch the victory after a 112.5-mile ride from Mondonedo to Estaca de Bares, the northernmost point in Spain.The Frenchman crossed the line ahead of Dylan Van Baarle and Mark Padun for his third career stage win at the race.KENYA2 Kenyan track of“ cials not guilty of extortionTwo senior Kenyan track and field officials were found not guilty by an IAAF ethics panel of extorting money from athletes in return for reducing doping bans or covering up positive tests despite there being some credible evidence.ŽFormer IAAF Council member David Okeyo, who was banned for life from track and field by the IAAF last week in a separate case, and former Kenyan federation CEO Isaac Mwangi were cleared after prosecutors did not prove the charges against them beyond a reasonable doubt.By Howard FendrichThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Roger Federer positioned a tiny black fan so it would blow air right at his face during changeovers in a bid to cool off during what became a stunning loss at the U.S. Open.Rafael Nadal piled up so many soaked white towels next to his sideline bench the following night that it looked like laundry day. The man he beat after five sets and nearly five hours, Dom-inic Thiem, found it impossible to run in shoes he called com-pletely wet.ŽAnd a day later, Novak Djokovics quarterfinal opponent made an unusual plea to leave the court at 2-all, right in the middle of a set, so he could change out of his drenched clothes and sneakers „ and Djokovic was OK with it, because it gave him a chance to remove his shirt and chill out for a bit.Djokovic leaned back, put his hands behind his head and stretched his legs Wednesday night in Arthur Ashe Stadium, looking more like someone relaxing by the pool than a guy in the grind of a Grand Slam match.Dont sweat the small stuff? Try telling that to Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and all of the other players, ball boys and girls, spectators and everyone else dripping through this most uncomfortable of U.S. Opens, where its not just the heat, its the humidity.I personally have never sweat as much as I have here. Incredi-ble. I mean, I have to take at least 10 shirts for every match,Ž said Djokovic, a two-time champion at Flushing Meadows who faces 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori in the semifinals Friday. Its, lit-erally, after two games, youre soaking.ŽHe was among those who noted just how much even the stoic Federer „ gasp! „ was perspiring when he was upset in the fourth round on Monday night, when the humidity was about 75 percent. Its exceeded that on other evenings, while the temperature keeps topping 90 degrees (32 Celsius), day after day, although its supposed to begin dropping Friday.I have never seen Roger sweat. Ever,Ž said John Isner, the highest-ranked American man. If hes sweating a lot, and has to change clothes, then you know its pretty humid out there.Ž Isner estimated that he might have lost 8 to 10 pounds during his quarterfinal loss Tuesday in Ashe to 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro, wholl meet Nadal in the semifinals.Whatever the humidity is on outer courts or in the city,Ž Isner said, I think its amplified on center court. Its just we have seen it all tournament long „ the girls and the guys out there, just sweating a lot.ŽOne player who wasnt sure what the fuss was all about was 20th-seeded Naomi Osaka, who represents Japan and trains in Florida.I actually dont think its that hot. Sorry,Ž Osaka said after her quarterfinal victory. I dont know, I think its because Im used to the Florida heat. So yeah, I kind of enjoyed it. I like sweating.ŽIts been so unusually muggy that the U.S. Tennis Association, which runs the Open, made up a rule on the fly to offer some help to the men, letting them take a 10-minute break between the third and fourth sets of a match that goes that long if its too hot.Open seasonBy Ralph D. RussoThe Associated PressThe first few weeks of the season often set the tone for which conference will be deemed best for the rest of the season.Its a debate that can be both fun and tedious. Does it really matter whether Kentucky is better than California when it comes time to figure out if the Pac-12 champion should be in the College Football Playoff?The Southeastern Conference, which has touted itself on being No. 1 for years (and is usually cor-rect), got off to a great start in week one going 13-1 with four victories against other Power Five conference teams. The Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 combined for four Power Five non-conference victories.This week, nine nonconference games match Power Five teams, includ-ing No. 2 Clemson at Texas A&M (ACC vs. SEC); UCLA at No. 6 Oklahoma (Pac12 vs. Big 12); No. 13 Penn State at Pitt (Big Ten vs. ACC); No. 15 Michigan State at Arizona State; and No. 18 Mississippi State at Kansas State (SEC vs. Big 12).There are also numerous opportunities for teams from the Group of Five to make a statement against Power Five opponents. For those conferences, competing against each other for a spot in the New Years Six bowls, notable nonconference victories can help separate the com-petition. The big ones this week include: Georgia Tech at South Florida (ACC vs. AAC); Arkansas at Colorado State (SEC vs. Mountain West); and Utah at Northern Illinois (Pac-12 vs. MAC).Its never too early to build those resumes.

Scott Taylors campaign staff of forging signatures on petitions supporting independent Shaun Brown.Democrats claim Taylors campaign wanted Brown on the 2nd District ballot to weaken support for his Demo-cratic opponent, Elaine Luria, and bolster his own re-elec-tion chances. The 2nd District spans Virginias coastline and includes Virginia Beach.ASUNCION, PARAGUAYParaguay moves Israel embassy back out of JerusalemParaguay announced Wednesday it would immediately move its embassy in Israel out of Jerusalem and back to Tel Aviv, less than four months after opening the new mission.The move presents an embarrassing diplomatic setback for Israel, which had hoped to build on the momen-tum started by the U.S., Guatemala and Paraguay, which all moved their embas-sies to Jerusalem in May. In response to Paraguays decision, Israel said it was shuttering its embassy there, warning that ties between the countries would be strainedŽ by the decision.ROMECity bans eating on sidewalks, doorsteps at meal times The tourist magnet of Flor-ence is cracking down on visitors who eat on sidewalks, doorsteps or driveways during lunch or dinner time.Mayor Dario Nardella has said that a new ordinance, calling for fines up to 500 euros ($575), aims to combat boorish tourists.Ž The ordinance, which went into effect this week, applies to certain streets in the Renais-sance city, including near the Uffizi Galleries, and only from noon to 3 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Its valid through Jan. 6, 2019, the end of the Italian holiday season.NICOSIA, CYPRUSCyprus to seek EU help on growing asylum applicationsCyprus will coordinate with other front-line Mediterranean countries bearing the brunt of new migrant arrivals to demand that other European Union member states take in more people who have been granted asylum, the island nations interior minister said Wednesday.Constantinos Petrides said the east Mediterranean coun-try will enact a raft of measures to ease a disproportionate burdenŽ it now bears as it comes under increasing strain from a surge in the number of asylum applications.Petrides said Cyprus ranks first among EU member states in the number of asylum applications relative to its population, which is around 1.1 million. PRAGUE4 killed in helicopter crash in Czech RepublicOfficials in the Czech Republic say a helicopter has crashed in a western city, killing all four people onboard.Regional rescue service spokesman Martin Brejcha says that the crash has occurred in Plzen, about 60 miles southwest of Prague. The victims havent been identified.Local firefighting spokes-man Petr Poncar says the helicopter crashed on the roof of an empty fac-tory hall in the industrial zone of Plzen on Wednesday afternoon. He says that the crash didnt spark a fire and no one else has been injured. The Associated PressIOWA CITY, IOWANEW YORKBy Catherine Lucey and Zeke MillerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump unloaded Wednesday against an explosive new book from journalist Bob Woodward, labeling the tell-all memoir a work of fictionŽ as West Wing staff scrambled to rebut its vivid depictions of White House dysfunction.The book means nothing,Ž Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. He said the early release of information from the book this week was designed to interfere with confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which I dont think its done.ŽVenting for a second day, Trump tweeted that Fear: Trump in the White HouseŽ was the exact opposite of the fact.Ž He also revisited a call to change libel laws, though he has no authority to do so.The book features current and former aides calling the president an idiotŽ and a liarŽ and depicting him as prone to rash policy decisions that aides worked furiously to derail or stall.Within the West Wing, aides increasingly numb to drama still were shaken by the in-depth reporting, which included interviews with numerous aides and copies of internal memos. The White House press office appeared caught off guard when The Washington Post published a story about the book on Tues-day, a week before its Sept. 11 release date. The office was unable to quickly procure an advance copy of the book.Key allies have pushed back against the book, which quotes Trump aides disparaging the presidents judgment and claiming they plucked papers off his desk to prevent him from withdrawing from a pair of trade agreements. Those issuing denials, at least in part, included Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and chief of staff John Kelly.Underscoring the aggressive response, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted Wednesday that Woodward got played,Ž adding that most of these stories are made up from low confidence under performing people that have fallen flat on their faces because they didnt have the talent or intelligence to be successful.ŽIn a statement to the Post, Woodward said, I stand by my reporting.Ž He did not respond to multiple requests for comment.Press secretary Sarah Huck-abee Sanders evaded questions Wednesday on Fox News about whether it was a mistake for the communications department not to have Trump sit for an interview with Woodward.Trump and Woodward spoke after the book was sent to the publisher. In a transcript and audio of the call released by the Post, Woodward tells Trump he made repeated efforts to get an interview, while a clearly irritated Trump says he would have participated if he had known.Allies said some of the ire in Trumps orbit was focused on former staffers such as ex-staff secretary Rob Porter and one-time economic adviser Gary Cohn, who are sympathetically portrayed.I dont think Woodward made anything up. Its who he talked to,Ž said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg, adding that Cohn and Porter look like unsung heroes.ŽTrump and aides pushed back on a series of incendiary scenes in the book, including Kelly calling the White House crazytown,Ž Mattis telling associates Trump had the understanding of a fifthor sixth-graderŽ and Cohn pluck-ing key documents off Trumps desk so he could not sign them.Trump took to Twitter to deny the books claim that he had called Attorney General Jeff Sessions mentally retardedŽ and a dumb Southerner.ŽTrump insisted he never used those terms on anyone, including Jeff,Ž adding that being a southerner is a GREAT thing.Ž Sessions has been a target of the presidents wrath since recusing himself from the Russia investigation.While Trump mentioned libel laws, Sanders said on Fox News that she hadnt spoken with Trump about filing a libel lawsuit. Brian Hauss, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement that a threat against libel laws was not credible.ŽThere is no federal libel law for President Trump to bully Congress to change, and the president does not have the authority to change state libel laws,Ž Hauss said.The book follows the January release of author Michael Wolffs Fire and Fury,Ž which led to a rift between Trump and Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist. Bannon spoke with Wolff in terms that were highly critical of the president and his family. Wolffs book attracted attention with its lively anecdotes but suffered from numerous factual inaccuracies.Trump disputes books portrayalPresident Donald Trump listens during an expanded bilateral meeting with the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah in the Cabinet Room of the White House on Wednesday in Washington.

FAITHBy Adrienne GreeneQ: Dear Pastor, Ive heard people say, parsonageŽ or rectoryŽ when discussing a pastors place of residence. Which is it? A: Thankfully, centuries ago, church people decided to build houses for their spiritual leaders to live in while they ministered to their congregations. In the Christian church we call this designated building by several different names: parsonage, manse, vicarage and rectory to name a few. The pastors of the Methodist, Baptist and Nazarene churches all live in parsonages while Presbyterians are housed in a manse. In England, the spiritual leader resides in a vicarage. And almost always, the Catholic or Episcopal priests home is referred to as the rectory. They all mean the same thing: the dwelling place of the working minister. The idea of housing the minister began when Jesus traveled around the Jordon River regions in need of a temporary place to dwell. Many hospitable souls opened their doors to honor and provide shelter for him as he journeyed. After Christs crucifixion, as Christianity spread via the 12 disciples, the early church exploded into every surrounding nation, eventually jumping bor ders then continents and bringing the good newsŽ of the Savior Jesus all over the world. But the masses and their leaders didnt embrace the message with joy at first, so the early Church spent its infancy quietly preaching, teaching and praising God underground in the catacombs and secret meeting places beneath the streets of the cities. These early ministers relied on the kindness of new converts to supply a dwelling place for them „ often risking intense persecution and death. Yet the Christian church persevered and the faithful kept the message moving forward. Some of these ancient saints set down their packs in foreign lands and bravely built houses of worship. In those days, a room was then set aside for the attending man of God. (Women were not invited into pulpits until around 1850.) Many times those primitive churches blossomed into abbeys and convents containing numerous buildings to house the devoted clergy who made it their lifes work to serve people and the Lord. The idea behind the pastors house rooted into the blueprints of church construction and soon it became a standard. First Timothy 5:17 informs us, The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.Ž First Thessalonians 5:12 explains, But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction.Ž I quote those scriptures not to validate myself or my housing needs, but to remind us all that the Bible does urge us to honor the working ministers. Providing shelter for them, like helping Jesus with housing along his journey, is indeed biblical. It is also helpful: There are many occasions of crisis or need when the commute to the sanctuary must be short. Before my turn came in the pulpit, while God was refining me for the office I now hold, I wasnt a good church member. Often frustrated with my pastoral care, overly critical of biblical instruction and downright hard on the people who tried to minister to me, I scoffed that pastors were imperfect and often unfit. Ive since deeply regretted my attitude, now understanding the price paid by the hard-working pastor. Thank God my immaturity and ignorance of the profession didnt translate to the level of Gods grace for me. And he even gave me a congregation who provides me with a beautiful home to live in. My congregation is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year. The parsonage, just 25 feet from the churchs side door, was constructed only a few years after the churchs cornerstone was placed. No one but clergy and their families have ever lived in my house. It does not escape me that the walls are saturated with all that history, all those floor-walking pastors; their joys, tears, fears and passions. Its stunning to think about all that business with God going on for nearly two centuries in the very rooms where I now reside. If the walls could talk! (I would take notes.)The pastor has a special houseSpecial to WCN/HCTAGRACEVILLE The anni-versary banners are ready and the cake has been ordered, as the student body, staff, and faculty prepare to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of The Baptist College of Florida (BCF).Over the past seventy-five years, BCF has continued in "Telling the Story of Jesus." The address and name has changed, buildings and sig-nage has changed, curriculum and accreditation status has changed, and even leadership has changed, all part of making a dream a reality. Through-out the ages, the primary goal of BCF has remained solid in training and equipping students for the task of "Changing the World Through the Unchanging Word ."According to BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen, "The Baptist College of Florida was born in a time when World War II was raging, and Gods people saw a great need for training those individuals who would tell that troubled world the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.Seventy-five years later,BCF is still engaged in warfare; and the need of the world for the Gospel is still before it.BCF is continuing to train thoseindividuals who will go and tell this life-trans-forming story. As we pause for this time of celebration, we will be renewed, refreshed, re-energized, and refocused on the task and opportunity before us. Please join us in this time of praise to our Lord for His wonderful blessings."To celebrate the rich history of BCF, there will be a 75 th Anniversary Dinner with the Board of Trustees in the Deese Center on Thursday, Septem-ber 13. Immediately following chapel on September 17, there will be a cake-cutting celebra-tion with President Thomas A.

** Washington County News | Saturday, September 8, 2018 A11Reader question: Before the banks caused the 2008 meltdown, I purchased my home for $475,000. Homes directly around me have recently sold for anywhere between $215,000-$360,000. Prices are finally rebounding here. Can I expect to make any money by putting my home for sale or should I wait to die in this house before I make a profit?Montys answer: Many areas have recovered entirely from the meltdown our federal government created years before 2008. We all dont live in Seattle, San Francisco, or Las Vegas, but around the country, even the slowest markets to recover are progressing. Many pundits expect the markets appreciation rate to cool because of rising mortgage rates. Update knowledge The local and regional recovery rates vary on supply and demand driven by local or regional economies. For example, in my home state, a huge international company is building a massive manufacturing plant, and homes in that area are expected to increase in value as new workers will need housing. There are many sources to find real estate news. You can search online to find regional and local value trends. Seek local opinions Consider contacting several local agents and ask for a competitive market analysis (CMA). You will get three different opinions of value from them, and your job will be to decide which one makes the most sen se based on the research they present, and the depth of the study. For example, many real estate agents either do not know how to calculate adjustments between the subject property and the comparable sales or they do not want to invest the time necessary to go through the process. There is a high likelihood that you can sell long before you expire. When you mention you have the best home in the local community, that may be a factor that impacts the sale price. Buyers avoiding the house because of lesser neighboring values may reduce the size of your market. Like you, not all buyers will view it in that fashion. Most real estate agents will encourage you to keep reducing the price if time wears on because they believe a home that sits on the market for extended periods is overpriced. While there are overpriced homes, in many instances, it takes time to find the buyer that can overlook the value differential. HOME TIP OF THE WEEKHACKS FOR A CLEANER HOMECheck out the following hacks for a cleaner home from www.bobvila.com. € Clean your blender by lling it 1/3 full with hot water and adding a few drops of dish soap, then running it for a while. € Keep your vehicles cup holders clean by dropping cupcake liners into the bottom of each. Use silicone models and you can wash them in the dishwasher. € Wipe up pet hair by sliding a squeegee (like youd use to clean windows) over the carpet. LANDSCAPINGTIPS FOR FALL LAWNSOnce temperatures are consistently below 60 degrees, your lawn will start storing up nutrients in preparation for winter. Thats when you should start your fall lawn care regimen,Ž says Bryan Ostlund, executive director of Grass Seed USA. Following are three proactive measures you can take: € Reseed thin or bare areas. € Aerify. € Apply fertilizer. OUTDOORSEASY YARD UPDATESAdd one of these yard-enhancing projects from RentalHQ.com this fall: € Pond: This fall, choose a sunny spot in your yard to build your pond, and with the help of a rented miniexcavator, you can move the dirt and even carve out the terraces. € Fire pit: This is the ultimate fall project because when its done, you can enjoy it right away. „ Brandpoint DEAR MONTYHas the real estate market fully recovered? By Laura FirsztMore Content NowIs your house looking tired and shabby from the outside? Would you like to spruce it up to sell ƒ or just to make coming home more enjoyable? There are tons of improvements you can undertake to give your house exterior a facelift, at a whole range of price points. Some are best done by a pro, but there are plenty of DIY possibilities, as well. Take a look at this list of 10 suggestions.1. Pull out the paintbrush. Painting is a time-honored, affordable way of making just about anything in and around your home look fresh and new. Paint the entire house exterior or simply touch up the trim and voila. Youve got instant curb appeal.2. Spruce up the front door. Installation of a new steel entry door gives an excellent return on investment when you sell, according to Remodeling Magazines well-known annual Cost vs Value report. If thats not in the cards at the moment, sanding and restaining a wooden door „ or replacing the hardware on any type of door „ will make a substantial improvement on a dime.3. Refresh garage doors. Speaking of doors, did you know the average attached garage makes up 30 percent of the house exterior viewed from the street? And its doors play a major role in your homes appearance. Make sure garage doors are looking their best. If theyre more than 20-25 years old, consider hiring a contractor for replacement. Otherwise, embellish them easily by re“ nishing, adding windows, or changing the hardware.4. Light up your outdoors. Brighten up your house exterior with the right light “ xtures. They will look great and help keep you and your guests safe, as well. Choose from styles such as lanterns, solar lights, or lighting conveniently embedded in your decks support posts.5. Tend the landscape. Trim trees and shrubs neatly „ it will help them grow healthier. Add window boxes or a few attractive potted plantings for a quick, inexpensive lift. And while youre at it, remove any plants that might actually harm your home, such as English ivy, which, as it grows, is capable of tearing off gutters and roof shingles.6. Pay attention to your driveway. Nothing says tiredŽ like an old cracked, oil-stained stretch of drive right smack in front of your home. Resurface a concrete or asphalt driveway or give it a brand new luxe look by installing high-end materials like bricks or concrete pavers.7. Show your front walk some love. When the sidewalk leading to your entrance is looking the worse for wear, try one of these quick “ xes. Repair cracked concrete; edge the walk with a neat row of cobblestones, river rocks, or landscape timber on either side „ or call a landscaper to give your walkway a brand new look.8. Let your house numbers shine. You can accomplish this the lowtech way „ by polishing up a vintage brass number plate „ or go ultra high tech and install an LEDlit address display. The latter also helps “ rst responders “ nd your home fast in case of emergency.9. Add a portico or a porch. Dress up your homes frontage with a portico that will protect you from the elements while you hunt for your keys. Or go grand with the construction of a new porch, either out in front or wrapped all around the house.10. Reclad your house exterior. Recladding is a larger scale home makeover which makes a dramatic difference. Install new siding, cedar shakes, stucco, brick, or stone to imp rove a faded appearance and stop leaks. And if youre putting your home up for sale soon, recladding with manufactured stone veneer (its actually affordable concrete) offers an impressive 97 percent ROI.Laura Firszt writes for networx.com.Give your house exterior a facelift R i c h a r d M o n t g o m e r y Richard Montgomery BIGSTOCK
