** A2 Saturday, October 6, 2018 | Washington County News LOCAL & STATEBy Jim TurnerNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam would like the renegotiated and rebranded North Ameri-can Free Trade Agreement to do more to help the stateÂs farmers.And heÂs not alone, as U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also expressed concerns about the absence of relief for Florida agriculture in the revamped trade pact announced late Sunday.Putnam, who has long been a critic of the 24-year-old NAFTA, pointed to a need for more work to help Flor-ida farmers who compete with growers in Mexico."I am disappointed that this new agreement has no new protections for Florida fruit and vegeta-ble producers, who for too long have suffered from MexicoÂs unfair trade practices despite our best efforts,ÂŽ Putnam said in an email Tuesday.ÂOur d epartment, FloridaÂs congressional delegation and industry groups have fought hard to protect our specialty crop industry since the inception of NAFTA, and we will continue to do so as this new agreement moves forward,ÂŽ Putnam added.Putnam has argued for years that pepper and tomato growers and other Florida farmers have struggled against Mexican counterparts who swamp the U.S. market each winter with low-cost produce.Officials from the U.S., Mexico and Canada announced the new deal late Sunday, after Presi-dent Donald Trump made revamping NAFTA one of his priorities.The deal, which needs congressional approval, includes numerous issues, ranging from auto manufacturing and Canadian dairy imports to a dispute-settlement system. Trump, who campaigned in 2016 arguing that NAFTA was poorly negotiated and hurting American workers and manufacturers, has proposed naming the revised pact as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.Rubio spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas said in an email Tuesday that Âour concerns for Florida fruit and vegetables remain.ÂŽA little more than a year ago, Rubio and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., were among Florida lawmakers who urged U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to push for measures to help the stateÂs agriculture industry.Last week, after initial details of a deal with Mexico were announced, Rubio and Nelson intro-duced legislation intended to help Florida farmer growers bring trade cases against Mexican growers. Under the proposal, farmers could initiate cases with the Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission if they can prove dumping happens seasonally rather than year-round, according a news release from the senators.Rubio said in a statement that the bill is aimed at preventing dumping of Mexican winter produce into U.S. markets and is needed because of the absence of Âa memorandum of understanding or suspension agreements with the Mexican govern-ment covering seasonal and perishable produce imports.ÂŽIn April, Putnam sent a letter to Lighthizer urging him to consider FloridaÂs agriculture industry in negotiating changes to NAFTA.Putnam told Lighthizer that Âfamily farms in Florida and other states have found no relief from these unfair practices in our current trade laws or the current NAFTA agreement.ÂŽIn 2016, as the busi-ness-recruitment agency Enterprise Florida talked about expanding FloridaÂs role in international trade, Putnam said it was already too late to undo damage to the stateÂs growers from NAFTA."The entire tomato industry has realigned and very much is a shadow of its former self,ÂŽ Putnam said in November 2016.At the time, Putnam said the most helpful thing Trump could do would be to enforce protections in the trade agreement that are supposed to keep American producers from being undercut by such things as product dumping and currency manipulation."Prior administrations just didn't enforce the letter of the treaty to begin with," Putnam said. "Gosh, just that alone would be a step in the right direction."Putnam says trade deal falls short for Florida farmersBy Dara KamNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE --In what could be another delay for FloridaÂs burgeoning medical-marijuana industry, a Tallahassee judge agreed Wednesday to block state health officials from moving forward with the application process for highly sought-after medi-cal marijuana licenses.Leon County Circuit Judge Charles DodsonÂs verbal order during a hear-ing came nearly two months after he found that a state law, passed during a special legislative session last year, runs afoul of a constitutional amendment broadly legaliz-ing medical marijuana.In August, Dodson ruled that a cap on the number of medical marijuana operators included in the law Âdirectly contradictsÂŽ the amendment, which was overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2016.Dodson also decided that the 2017 law is unconstitutional because it requires marijuana opera-tors licensed by the state to cultivate, process, and dis-pense medical marijuana --something known as Âvertical integrationÂŽ --as opposed to breaking the activities into separate parts for licensure.And the judge ruled that the state improperly restricted who could get licenses. The law ordered health officials to grant licenses to operators who were already up and run-ning in Florida or who were involved in litigation as of Jan. 1, 2017. The law also required a license for a black farmer who meets certain conditions and set aside a preference for applicants with certain ties to the citrus industry.The citrus and black-farmer provisions amounted to what is known as a Âspe-cialÂŽ law, Dodson ruled in August. The judge found the 2017 law restricts rights granted under the Constitution and that plaintiff Florigrown LLC Âhas a substantial likelihood of successÂŽ in its claim that the law conflicts with the amendment.Despite multiple findings in his August decision that the statute is unconstitutional, Dodson waited until Wednesday to issue the temporary injunction sought by Florigrown, a company that was turned down for a license. Florigrown is partly owned by Tampa strip-club operator Joe Redner, who recently won another ruling against state health officials in a case in which he is seeking to grow his own marijuana to Âjuice,ÂŽ something the 77-year-oldÂs doctors recommend to prevent a recurrence of lung cancer. The state has appealed the ruling in the earlier case.ÂItÂs good news for me. ItÂs good news for Florigrown. ItÂs good news for the patients and the Constitution of the state of Florida,ÂŽ Redner said in an interview following WednesdayÂs hearing.In August, the judge set a Wednesday deadline for health officials or the Legislature to resolve the deficiencies with the law. Wednesday marked one year after a deadline imposed by the constitutional amendment for health officials to begin issuing identification cards to patients who qualify for medical marijuana.ÂAnother two months has passed, and I do believe now weÂre at the point where Florigrown will suffer irreparable harm absent the entry of a temporary injunc-tion and that, given the public interest that canÂt be more clearly stated than the public stated in the medical marijuana amendment, that allowing this process and procedures going through by the department is not in the public interest,ÂŽ Dodson said Wednesday.Luke Lirot, a lawyer representing Florigrown, accused health officials of having Âignored this courtÂs observations Âƒ with impunity.ÂŽÂItÂs quite candidly shocking that the court would issue an order and it would be so robustly ignored by the Department of Health after there was a clear indi-cation that they needed to do something,ÂŽ he said.But Dodson appeared to sympathize with the predicament of state health officials, saying they were in an Âunusual situationÂŽ trying to follow an uncon-stitutional statute.In a video recording of an August rules hearing played by FlorigrownÂs lawyers Wednesday, state Office of Medical Marijuana Use Director Courtney Coppola said she was Âfollowing the lawÂŽ by moving forward with the application process for four new licenses.ÂWhat Miss Coppola was saying was, weÂre following the statute, which is what agencies normally are required to do, but the statute is just unconstitu-tional,ÂŽ the judge said. ÂIÂm sure the Legislature was trying its best to comply with the Constitution, but they just didnÂt do that in this circumstance.ÂŽDodson said he would issue a written order grant-ing the temporary injunction by Friday and set a Nov. 19 hearing to consider sum-mary judgment in the case.Health officials said they will review DodsonÂs order when it is issued.ÂThis ruling does not impact the availability of medical marijuana in Flor-ida. Low-THC and medical marijuana has been and con-tinues to be available to the more than 160,000 qualified patients by more than 1,500 qualified physicians through 14 approved medical mari-juana treatment centers in 55 locations,ÂŽ agency spokes-man Nick Van Der Linden said in an email.But DodsonÂs ruling Âblocks the Florida Depart-ment of Health from proceeding forward with the application process for addi-tional medical marijuana treatment center licenses, over the 14 that have already been issued,ÂŽ Ari Gerstin, a lawyer who represents Florigrown and who participated in WednesdayÂs hearing by telephone, told The News Service of Florida.Judge blocks medical marijuana license process ground. During the alter-cation, McNeil fled again, at which time the deputy deployed his taser, striking McNeil. McNeil then fell to the ground, hitting his head on the roadway, losing consciousness.Emergency Medical Services were called to treat McNeil immediately.The release states that before EMS arrived, McNeil regained consciousness and provided his correct name and date of birth to law enforcement.Once McNeil was transported to a nearby hospital, WCSO was informed that he would need to be transported to another facility for further medical treatment. WCSO states that at this time, McNeil was issued a Notice to Appear for felony court on the charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, providing a false name to law enforcement, and possession of a new legend drug.After further investigation, WCSO found the Massey Ferguson tractor driven by McNeil was stolen from a 71-year-old man. WCSO says they haveobtained a felony arrest warrant on additional charges of grand theft pertaining to the theft of the tractor.McNeil was released from prison earlier this year and is currently out on bond on unrelated felony drug charges out of Bay County.Washington County Sheriff Kevin Crews says WCSO operates with pro-fessionalism and integrity in order to protect the communities from safety risks.ÂWe operate the Wash-ington County SheriffÂs Office with the highest level of professionalism and integrity,ÂŽ said Crews. ÂMore than 99% of our arrests are without incident or injury. When a suspect chooses to violently attack or attempt to overpower one of our deputies, it is our respon-sibility as law enforcement to react in such a way that protects our communities from further safety risks.ÂŽ WCSOFrom Page A1

BareÂ“ eld EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett For the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court begins a term shorthanded. The high court opened a new session Monday with only eight justices, as the Brett Kavanaugh nuclear conflagration continues. When the justices were in a similar situation in 2016, they indicated a preference for taking on less divisive cases. That cautious approach is likely to be duplicated today, given the heated emotions currently raging over the panel. ÂItÂs a little bit of a fraught period for the court,ÂŽ Justice Elena Kagan admitted during a September conference in New York. ÂWe should be aware of the environment and not unnecessarily exacerbate the divisions that unfortunately exist.ÂŽ ThatÂs all well and good, but the justices mustnÂt ignore their duty for fear of inflaming passions. The court is charged with ensuring the executive and legislative branches operate within their constitutional authority Â„ and that shouldnÂt change simply because the Trump presidency has disrupted the body politic. In fact, the court at this point has more than three dozen cases on its docket, and the justices heard a potentially significant dispute right out of the gate. The first case argued Monday involved the Endangered Species Act, a rare frog and property rights. The decision will have ramifications for how far the administrative and regulatory states can go to limit a private landownerÂs use of his own property. Other cases set for this term address the constitutionality of civil forfeiture against a backdrop of the Eighth AmendmentÂs prohibition on excessive fines, the extent of a defendantÂs protections against double jeopardy, conflicts between state laws and federal land restrictions and efforts to punish sex offenders even after theyÂve served their time. In addition, the cases already accepted will have a bearing on the separation of powers, the Fifth AmendmentÂs takings clause, the Fourth AmendmentÂs protections against unreasonable government searches and seizures and the scope of class-action lawsuits. ItÂs also a good bet the justices will eventually decide to hear appeals involving the presidentÂs immigration policies, including the DACA controversy, and the partisan battle over state redistricting and gerrymandering. Regardless of whether Judge Kavanaugh survives the attempted auto-da-fe or some other jurist is eventually selected, the justices this term should avoid compromising their principles in an effort to appease the Trump resistance and instead simply stay true to the ideals of freedom and individual liberty enshrined in our nationÂs founding document. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a News sister paper with GateHouse Media.Supreme Court opens its latest term with only 8 justices ANOTHER VIEW General George C. Marshall is what people used to call a dedicated public servant. As Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, he did essential work to get a dangerously unprepared America at least partially ready for World War II, and then led the mammoth organizational effort required for victory. Later, he served as Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense during the trying post-war years, as the Cold War began. The Marshall Plan, the comprehensive aid and reconstruction program for Europe, began implementation in 1948 Â„ 70 years ago. That year governments created the Organization for European Economic Cooperation to distribute aid, succeeded in 1960 by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a global organization. Marshall wanted to lead the Allied invasion of Europe at Normandy, but that mission went to protg Dwight Eisenhower. President Franklin Roosevelt considered Marshall indispensable, and said he could not sleep at night if the general were not in Washington. Along with remarkable executive ability, Marshall had great diplomatic and political skill. Soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Japanese land forces trapped U.S. troops in the Philippines under the command of General Douglas MacArthur. President Roosevelt was emphatic that MacArthur should not become a Japanese prisoner of war, and ordered an evacuation to Australia. Despite personal dislike and mistrust of MacArthur, a view widely shared, Marshall followed up thoroughly to ensure MacArthurÂs escape, that media and public knew this was not MacArthurÂs decision, and the government of Australia welcomed him. Marshall also decided MacArthur should receive the Medal of Honor. We do not discuss Marshall much today. He put little personal information in the public record, and never wrote memoirs. He feared inadvertently revealing details best kept private. Also Â„ incredibly from a contemporary perspective Â„ he felt strongly that patriotic citizens should not benefit financially from government office. For him, public service was literally just that. Fortunately, Forrest Pogue authored a masterful comprehensive biography of this great leader. Another such public servant is Charles Bowsher, who 10 years ago this month, visited Carthage College in Wisconsin. For 16 years starting in 1981, he was Comptroller General of the United States, a low-profile but enormously important post that oversees budget management on behalf of the Congress. Earlier, Bowsher spent a total of a quarter century with top accounting firm Arthur Andersen. In public remarks, he provided a detailed tour of the government horizon. He gave high marks to Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton for impressive budgetary discipline, even in the face of harsh criticism, which probably cost the former leader reelection. In comments echoing Eisenhower, he emphasized that wars are easy to begin but often hard to end, using Iraq as an example. His presentation was an informative, inspiring history lesson on the vital role of government in averting as well as handling crises, from the economy to w ar, and the great difficulty of instituting change in the public sector at any time. Carthage this month hosts former Governor John Baldacci of Maine, a leader who emphasizes bipartisan collaboration. Currently, he chairs the Northeast-Midwest institute, a nonprofit working to improve environment and infrastructure among the eighteen states in the Mi dwest and Northeast of the U.S.Public servants and the public goodWith all the vitriol in our politics with all the disagreement that is tearing our country apart we could all use some levity about now. HereÂs one joke I think we can all agree with: A man wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun against his ribs. ÂGive me your money,ÂŽ said the mugger. ÂYou canÂt do this,ÂŽ said the well-dressed man. ÂIÂm a U.S. congressman!ÂŽ ÂIn that case,ÂŽ said the mugger, Âgive me MY money!ÂŽ Being a parent is more challenging than ever. We live in a time when parents must censor C-SPAN! Which reminds me of the one about the father who used the never-ending shenanigans in Washington to teach his son an important lesson. ÂSon, you should never steal, lie or cheat.ÂŽ ÂWhy, Dad?ÂŽ ÂBecause the government hates competition!ÂŽ The U.S. Senate is agitating millions of Americans. The allegedly august body of distinguished minds is supposed to give thoughtful pause to our political process but is giving us a Jerry Springer show instead. ThatÂs why the words of legendary humorist Will Rogers are truer today than when he spoke them during the Great Depression: ÂThe Senate just sits and waits till they find out what the president wants, so they know how to vote against him.ÂŽ ÂAbout all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation.ÂŽ ÂSenators are a never-ending source of amusement, amazement and discouragement.ÂŽ With our senators being held in such low regard, this joke will resonate with many: A minister goes to a barbershop on Capitol Hill. The bar ber, thanking him for his service, says ÂNo charge.ÂŽ The next morning, the barber finds a thank-you note from the minister. A few days later a police officer gets his hair cut. The barber, thanking the officer for his service, says ÂNo charge.ÂŽ The next morning, the barber finds a thank-you note from the police officer. A few days after that, a senator gets his hair cut. The barber, thanking the senator for his service, says ÂNo charge.ÂŽ The next morning, as he arrives at his shop, a dozen senators are waiting on the stoop.ÂŽ Public discourse is suffering in our country right now one could argue it is non-existent, which is a dangerous turn for our country. According to dictionary. com, ÂdiscourseÂŽ is Âcommunication of thought by words; talk; conversation.ÂŽ Thoughtful conversation is how we arrive at political consensus how we vote for political leaders, make our laws, pick our judges.Jokes abound, but political divide no laughing matter Tom Purcell Arthur Cyr

ÂI didnÂt expect that to happen, but I knew it was gonna be wild.ÂŽ2. Roval hangoverDover International Speedway is a pretty tough track, but after drivers got their Â“ rst taste of the Charlotte Roval, the ÂMonster MileÂŽ should be a breeze. The inaugural Roval race produced two late-race cautions, which helped determine the outcome. The Roval even offered up a ÂBig OneÂŽ crash like you will see at Talladega in a few weeks. A total of 15 cars piled up in Turn 1 just Â“ ve laps from the dramatic Â“ nish.3.

** Washington County News | Saturday, October 6, 2018 A7Former coaches, foes stunned by winless start by once-proud Nebraska programBy Eric OlsonThe Associated PressLINCOLN, Neb. Â„ NebraskaÂs descent from the top of the college football hierarchy is going on two decades, yet those white helmets with the red block ÂNÂŽ remain an iconic piece of the sportÂs lore.That might be why the CornhuskersÂ 0-4 start is so jarring, and not just to people inside the program and a fan base that has sold out Memorial Stadium every game since 1962.NebraskaÂs worst start since 1945 has been a major story line this season, espe-cially after the splashy hire of 2017 national coach of the year Scott Frost, who completed Central FloridaÂs two-year turnaround with a 13-0 record before he returned to his home state and the program he quarter-backed to a share of the 1997 national championship.The Huskers have lost 14 of their last 18 games, and last weekend they dropped an eighth in a row for the first time in the programÂs 129-year history. TheyÂre listed as 17.5-point underdogs for their game at Wisconsin on Saturday night.Even the coaches who used to get beaten badly and regularly by the Huskers are having difficulty grasp-ing the current state of the Nebraska program.ÂI never thought IÂd see the day,ÂŽ said Glen Mason, 0-9 against the Huskers as Kansas coach from 1988-96 and now a Big Ten network analyst. ÂI would have thought they would have been better. Not great, but I thought he would make them better right away.ÂŽÂUnthinkable. Shocking, really,ÂŽ said R.C. Slocum, whose Texas A&M teams went 1-3 against the Husk-ers, including a 39-point loss in the 1997 Big 12 cham-pionship game.ÂIt just breaks my heart,ÂŽ said Jim Walden, who was an assistant at Nebraska under Bob Devaney in the early 1970s and went 1-7 against the Huskers as Iowa State coach from 1987-94.Nebraska ranks fifth alltime in wins, and no team won more from the 1970s through the Â90s under Dev-aney and Tom Osborne. The Huskers went 309-56-5 for an.842 winning percentage over the three decades, and won all or part of five national championships and 17 conference titles.Nebraska is 150-87 (.633) since, hasnÂt won a conference championship since 1999 and hasnÂt appeared in the final Top 25 in six years. ÂLook at every program in the country, they went through some dog days, so to speak,ÂŽ said Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, 5-14 against Nebraska over two stints from 1989-2010. ÂTheyÂll build their way out of it, and I have great confidence in that. It doesnÂt surprise me a bit. College football, itÂs hard to be surprised by anything.ÂŽSchools such as Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State and Southern California have endured lean times, but NebraskaÂs down cycle has been lingering.Mason, Slocum and Walden said the turning point was the decision by former athletic director Steve Pederson to fire Frank Solich after a 9-3 season in 2003. Solich had played for Devaney, was an Osborne assistant and went 58-19 in six years. Bill Callahan, Bo Pelini and Mike Riley followed.ÂI donÂt think Bill understood the Nebraska program,ÂŽ Mason said. ÂRight away he talked about changing the recruiting and doing away with the walkon program. Being a guy who had to compete with Nebraska back in my Kansas days, I was thinking, ÂAre you crazy?Â That walk-on program was the envy of every program in the country.ÂŽOsborneÂs triple-option offense also gave the Husk-ers a unique identity that attracted top running backs, and his teams played what Mason called ÂsuffocatingÂŽ defense. Those days are long gone. Offensive coordinators on the previous three staffs had a penchant for the pass, and since joining the Big Ten in 2011 the Huskers have allowed more than 50 points in nine conference games, including five of the last seven. ÂWe need Nebraska to be good,ÂŽ Walden said. ÂWe need teams that are not just the sparkling Ohio States and Alabamas of the world. You need that good olÂ Midwest hard-core Nebraska-type mentality to be good. I always felt we were leaders to show the way you could get things done, and not necessarily in a glamorous city or a big school. Nebraska was what we used to call a blue-collar college, a blue-collar football team, and we loved the fact it was a farming community and people loved the school and this team and it was everything to them. I still do believe thatÂs important.ÂŽ New depths SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFLISBON, PORTUGAL Ronaldo left off Portugal squad for matchesCristiano Ronaldo was left off PortugalÂs national team squad for a pair of upcoming matches, the decision coming Thursday as the soccer great fights a rape allegation in the United States.Ronaldo has been accused of rape by Kath-ryn Mayorga, who says the player assaulted her in Las Vegas in 2009. He has denied the accusation.Ronaldo was left off the squad for Portu-galÂs second game in the UEFA Nations League at Poland on Oct. 11 and a friendly match in Glasgow against Scot-land three days later.Portugal coach Fernando Santos said Ronaldo also will not be called up for the next round of international games in November. MOSCOWRussia accused of hacking sports worldIn Russia, sports and the government are closely intertwined.Top athletes hold military ranks, Olympic medals are a matter of national pride, and champions receive luxury cars in Kremlin ceremonies.So when Russia was accused of doping its way to the top, the Rus-sian state hit the sports world with a wave of hacker attacks, says an indictment unsealed Thursday by the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI.More than 250 athletesÂ medical records were published and confidential data from some of the worldÂs big-gest sports organizations Â„ the Olympics, world track and field, FIFA Â„ was published as Russia prepared to host this yearÂs soccer World Cup.Scott Brady, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, said Russia was seeking revenge for some of its team being barred from the 2016 Summer Olym-pics over widespread drug use and cover-ups.ÂThis began with a disclosure of Russian state-sponsored doping programs for its athletes. In other words, Russia cheated,ÂŽ Brady said. ÂThey cheated, they got caught, they were banned from the Olym-pics, they were mad, and they retaliated. And in retaliating, they broke the law, so they are criminals.ÂŽST.

By Tom HaysThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ The father of a top-rated college basketball pros-pect testified Thursday that his son was offered thousands of dollars on the sly to play at major programs before a cor-ruption scandal derailed the promising playerÂs collegiate career.At a federal trial over allegations about dirty money in college hoops, Brian Bowen Sr. said that an aspiring agent, Christian Dawkins, told the father he could pocket $50,000 if his son played at the University of Arizona, $150,000 at Oklahoma State or $100,000 at Creighton. Bowen said there was some interest from Oregon but didnÂt recall cash offer.Bowen told a Manhattan jury it was his understanding the offers were being made by assistant coaches at the schools, though he never spoke to them directly about money. He said the Oklahoma offer, which included an additional $8,000 for a car, came from then-assistant coach Lamont Evans, a defendant in the investigation whoÂs pleaded not guilty.Dawkins, former ama-teur coach Merle Code and former Adidas exec-utive James Gatto, have pleaded not guilty to they committed fraud by secretly funneling money from Adidas to families of prospects to get them to attend colleges spon-sored by the athletic wear company. The son, Brian Bowen Jr., eventually landed at Louisville, an Adidas school, after the defendants engineered a promise of $100,000 for his family.GattoÂs attorney and a taped conversation in evidence at the trial have suggested the deal to sign with Louisville had to compete with an undis-closed offer to lure Brian Bowen Jr. to Oregon, which is sponsored by Nike. Oregon has denied it knew of any deal.The criminal case announced last year charging the three men with fraud resulted in the school pulling the sonÂs scholarship before he could ever play and firing its legendary coach, Rick Pitino.Before his testimony about the alleged offers, the elder Bowen grew emotional when a pros-ecutor first brought up his son, who goes by the nickname ÂTugs.ÂŽÂIs Tugs in college?ÂŽ asked Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Diskant.ÂNo, heÂs not,ÂŽ Bowen responded.When the prosecutor asked why not, Bowen dropped his head into his hands and wept, prompting the judge to call a recess.Brian Bowen Jr. now plays professionally in Australia.Father: College programs o ered son pay Nebraska defensive back Tre Neal walks off the Â“ eld following the loss Purdue, Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.

** A8 Saturday, October 6, 2018 | Washington County News FAITHBy Rev. Tim Schenck More Content NowI spend a lot of time wandering aimlessly through the church parking lot. It never used to be this way. My general philosophy had always been that parking lots were designed for cars, not people. But then we got a new puppy, and suddenly I find myself walking around the parking lot like a lost itinerant preacher holding a leash rather than circuit riding atop a horse. Cooper is now 5-monthsold, a curiously adorable mix of basenji, German shepherd and chihuahua. WeÂve been doing puppy classes (which, apparently, are no longer referred to as Âobedience schoolÂŽ), but in the months before figuring out leash walking, Cooper and I have spent a lot of time strolling through the church grounds, with particular emphasis on the parking lot. For some reason, he has an affinity for it. One lesson this has revealed, besides the fact that heÂs no longer motivated by the cheap training treats, is the joy of exploring familiar spaces in new ways. I mean, if someone had asked me a few months ago about the church parking lot, I would have been able to sketch it out on a napkin. I know its basic shape, the upward slope of the driveway, the proximity of the church, the Memorial Garden and playground. But I didnÂt really know it. I never paid attention to the way the light hit the pavement through the trees at different times of the day or how particular angles of church architecture stand out from different vantage points or the beauty of the wild vegetation that forms a natural barrier around it. Forced intimacy with the familiar brings new perspective, opening fresh insights and inviting wonder. ThatÂs an unexpected gift that can arise even through someone as seemingly mundane as walking a dog through a parking lot. And it leads to reflection upon what other newly revealed joys we may be missing that exist in our midst. It may be someone in our lives with whom weÂre familiar but never really taken the time to truly know. Or a daily ritual like a commute or a walk around the neighborhood that we no longer fully see because weÂre too distracted or we find ourselves staring at our phones or itÂs just become too familiar. People often have this experience with the LordÂs Prayer Â„ it has become so rote, so familiar, that we fail to hear the power behind it. When we put it in context, we recall that Jesus teaches it to the disciples after they ask him how to pray. Think about that. If you were allowed to ask Jesus one question, this might not be at the top of your list, but it would likely make the top five. And he gives us a simple, poignant, direct, example of how to converse with the divine. Fall is a wonderful time to open your heart and mind to the wonders of the familiar. Unlocking the potential beauty of that which surrounds us, invites us into the world that exists beyond first impressions. It gives us the opportunity to break through the familiar in order to experience things with fresh eyes. I encourage you to discover your own parking lot momentIn good faith: No parking zone If you would like your Washington County church listed here, please send information to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Washington County Business Volume 11, Number 1 Washington County, Florida October-November 2018 WE BELIEVE IN WASHINGTON COUNTY! By Brandon LoveringLEAD Washington County Steering ChairLeadershipÂƒ it may mean different things to different people, but the common theme is direction. Without direc-tion, there is no plan. Without a plan, there is no growth.The LEAD Washington County Steering Committee has spent the past year developing a new leadership program designed especially for Washington County. The inaugural LEAD Washington County Class came together Sept. 6 to begin a journey of personal leadership develop-ment, community exploration and purposeful, positive influ-ence on our CountyÂs evolving environment.The programÂs 10-month curriculum includes days focused on key areas of: health care and human services, business and industry, agri-business, infrastructure, courts and government, education, Leadership class charged to be stewards of growth Meet LEAD Washington County Class #1 on PAGE 11Lovering The Class was welcomed by employees with ARC of WashingtonHolmes.

Ted EverettExecutive DirectorHow many of you know what a Chamber of Commerce is really about and what it does for a community? Chambers vary in size and make-up in countries throughout the world. Still, the Chamber of Commerce is first and foremost a business that supports and advocates for businesses, like yours. Almost every tax dollar collected, has, as its root, a business that caused that dollar to happen. It is through businesses and commerce that our society thrives. So, it begs the question, who looks out for your businesses? Your Chamber of Commerce. Let me give you an example. WorkmanÂs comp is a big issue with all businesses, and one of the biggest insurance concerns in Florida with which businesses struggle. This issue has been discussed during FloridaÂs legislative sessions many times. So, who talks to our legislators on behalf of our businesses? Your Chamber of Commerce does. When it comes to overregulation, it is the Chamber that raises this matter with our local legislators. After all, they are the ones that vote on legislated bills, so it is important that they hear from us Â… the Chamber and their member businesses. Locally, we do our best to help all businesses. As you may know, the Chamber administers the Chipley Redevelopment Agency (CRA) which is always trying to improve on ways we can help businesses within the CRA designated area both physically and legislatively. The Economic Development Council focuses on growth throughout the County by working with Julie DillardChamber PresidentLast week, I got in a ÂtizzyÂŽ (aka stressed out). I had a huge districtwide program coming up where people werenÂt pulling their weight, the end of the budget year was looming, I had just participated in a webinar taught by people who have no clue about what I do on the county level, there were interviews going on for a critical role in our organization and my son just called to tell me that he needed a new mouth-guard because the one I bought him the week before had been taken. There are just some things we canÂt control, but in my work life, IÂve worked purposefully to control those stressors that negatively impact my attitude and productivity. Do you ever feel the need to just disconnect with technology? With cell phones practically attached to our hands, smart watches becoming the latest must-have gadget and fully functional laptops you can tuck in your purse or under your arm, itÂs difficult to get away from technology. But IÂll wager that itÂs also a choice that we can control with some self-discipline. One of the most important things IÂve learned is that an email or text doesnÂt necessarily warrant an immediate answer. Take some time to actually think through an answer or solution or whateverÂs being asked of you. DonÂt be afraid to tell someone that you need to think about it before you give an answer. And if you have a colleague that is constantly asking, ÂDid you read that email I send you?ÂŽ get in the habit of telling them ÂNo, but when I do, IÂll have a well-thought out response to whatever it is that you need.ÂŽ Turn off email notifications and minimize the program; setting times to check and respond to emails will help control the flood of information that can drown you. Another thing that has kept me sane is set a Âpretend my door is closedÂŽ policy. Unless IÂm on a long phone call or participating in a web meeting, my door is usually wideopen. But that doesnÂt mean that every time something pops into your head that IÂm going to stop what IÂm doing to talk. IÂm not going to stop working if you just need to chat. I may sound harsh, but once my train of thought is interrupted, itÂs difficult for me to Page 2 Washington County Business Advocate October November 2018The views and opinions expressed in this publication are those of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and are in no way associated with the Washington County News.

October November 2018 Washington County Business Advocate Page 5By Ted EverettEconomic Development OfficerRecently, Washington County was awarded a technical assistance grantof $35,000 for a comprehensive sewer and water study. The award was-made by the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), Flor-idaÂs agency for economic development.The ChamberÂs Economic Development Council put this grantopportunity forth to the county.This grant piggybacks on a previous study funded by Enterprise Florida, a sub agency of DEO.The study, authorized and paid for by Enterprise Florida, was designed to look at every rural county in Florida and determine suitable sites for eco-nomic activities.Leotta Location and Designs LLC performed this study. Victor LeottaÂs firm has been involved in identifying sites and working with companies looking to expand or set up throughout the Southeast.LeottaÂs firm identified 13 possible sites in Washington County and those sites were then ranked by the EDC in order of best to worse. Using this information, the EDC then wrote a grant that would seek to study ways to get water and sewer to the optimal sites as well as a study for possible new spray fields and/or a central site that in the future could be used by several of our municipalities.Discharging treated water is a big concern for the county and the City of Chipley.Look at it this way, if you cannot discharge effluent, you cannot have addi-tional businesses hook up to water lines thus limiting growth opportunities.We all want more job opportunities, new businesses that will help the CountyÂs tax base.With this grant, we can start to develop a longer-term plan for addressing these issues that can and will have an impact on future growth. I will write a follow up article after the study is complete and we have a bet ter picture of what will need to be done to grow our future.Technical assistance grant to study best sewer, water sitesEverett Victor Leotta, seated in center, discusses the site selection process with members of the EDC.

I prioritize my most taxing tasks for mornings because thatÂs when IÂm most productive. IÂve made that clear in my office to the people I work with on a daily basis, but they also know that I will happily set up times to talk when we can both focus and work on a goal together. I feel pretty confident making this generalization: we are all juggling multiple balls in the air or spinning multiple plates regardless of our industry or place of employment. My best advice is to take control of the things that negatively affect you and clearly articulate to people you work with how you are going to positively work to change them to create a lessstress work life.Page 10 RENEWALS Business Evaluation & Appraisal, Inc. 2005 Central Panhandle Association of Realtors 2014 Chipola Area Habitat for Humanity 2000 CLS Technology, LLC 2014 Colonial Restaurant 2010 Commercial Property Investments 2008 Dermatology Associates 2001 Emerald Coast Hospice 2012 First Federal Bank Â… Chipley 2006 First United Methodist Church 1984 Floyd, Josephine R 2009 Goodwill Industries Big Bend, Inc. 2008 Heather N Wells, PA 2012 HomeTown Heating & Cooling 2017 Judy's Tropical Plants 1997 KW Photography LLC 2018 Main Street Market 2008 NHC Home Care 1989 Nick Dillard Construction LLC 2011 One South Bank 2007 Southeastern Surveying & Mapping 1998 Surplus & Salvage of Chipley 1980 TherapyWorld of NW Florida, LLC 2009Washington County Historical Society 2010 Woodmen Life Lodge 883 1984 NEW MEMBERS BJÂs Grill 2018 Membership Report DIRECTORContinued from 2 PRESIDENTFrom Page 2
