However, that could all soon change. An inspection by the Naval History Heritage Command and PRES LLC determined that the display needs a number of repairs in order for the city to keep the loan. The city council discussed the cost of maintenance on the plane at the July 2 executive city council meeting. During the meeting Milton resident George Jordan approached the council with an alterna-tive suggestion„a full-scale panther statue where the plane is.Jordan provided pictures of several versions of panther statues to the council including a bronze panther which he says would be more cost efficient to maintain than the T-28B. You know all of us like and appreciate the airplane exhibit,Ž Jordan said. Wed like to keep the display just like it is, just like it has been for many years. But to bring the maintenance back up to the level acceptable to the aviation museum is going to be awful expen-sive.Ž Jordan said the bronze panther would cost a one time cost of $6,450. He said he is not trying to push for the panther but wanted to offer an alternative in case the cost of trying to preserve the plane is indeed too high. Councilwoman Mary Ellen Johnson said she remembered a previous panther statue stood in another location on the school grounds at one time that had been removed. The maintenance of the T-28B could exceed $80,000. Councilman Alan Lowery said the council should move this to committee of the whole and think carefully about Jordans suggestion. Discussion will continue at the committee of the whole meeting at 3:30 p.m. July 19.Plane or pantherThe Trojan T-28B static aircraft display at Milton High School has been there since the 1970s.

"I said, What do you mean wow? It was a shock."Graysons mom, Lauren Boatwright, was admitted to the hospital and put on bed rest. Two weeks later on June 27, Grayson was born via cesarean section. He was just 4 pounds. An hour after he was born, Grayson went in for surgery where much of his intestine and part of his colon had to be removed.Less than two weeks old, little Grayson is facing a battle for his life which requires an intesti-nal transplant. Its a procedure thats not only expensive but is only performed at a handful of hospitals. To help raise money for medical expenses, family and friends have been organizing fundraisers, including the Shrimp Basket in Navarre where Cory works as a general manager. Hes all that mattersGrayson Abel Stulzaft-Cordell was born at 29 weeks on June 27.

Republican women club makes donationBy Press Gazette contributorGULF BREEZE „ Wei Ueberschaer is running for Santa Rosa County School Board District 5. She describes her reasons for running and her background in her own words here: In early March, after much contemplation and discussion with my family, I decided to run for the District 5 seat of the Santa Rosa County School Board.As a former chemistry/biology teacher at Tate High School and an Escambia County Teacher of the Year semi-finalist, I understand the rewarding, yet compli-cated responsibilities tasked to our teachers.Serving as president or board member for a PTA or School Advisory Council continuously for the past 17 years, I also believe that I have a parent perspective of how families view the impor-tance of a successful school district. I have a bachelors degree in Biological Sciences and a masters degree in Sec-ondary Science Education. I believe that my background as a teacher and education advocate will bring common sense ideas to our school board.I decided to run for four main reasons:€Retaining and recruiting great teachers by providing a fair and reasonable salary and bene“ ts package € Restoring the 7-period instructional time for students and giving teachers a planning period during the school day € Placing a School Resource Of“ cer in each school € Addressing rapid population growth in Santa Rosa CountyThese goals can be accomplished with recurring operational funds available through the continual growth of Santa Rosa County's student population. Every budget line needs to be scrutinized for efficiency and over expenditure, so we can continue to provide the best education for our students and successful work environment for our educators and support professionals.Santa Rosa County schools must continue to expand the Career Academies that provide industry certification in fields such as nursing, culinary, manufacturing and digital design. I would like to see the implementation of a Teaching Academy to introduce stu-dents to a career in education and encourage them to stay in Santa Rosa County.My husband Tom and I have lived in Santa Rosa County for over 20 years and our sons either graduated or are still attending SRC schools. Our family has benefited from the successful schools we have here, and I would like to do my part in ensuring that this qual-ity continues.I will work with families and educators to bring new ideas and cohesiveness back to the school board. We are all working for the same mission, preparing students for success.I am a founding board member of the local charities Miracle League of Santa Rosa County and Gulf Breeze Will Do. I am also a current board member for the Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Florida and an active member of Impact 100 since 2011. Serv-ing for these organizations as well as my work experience as a bookkeeper has prepared me to work with large budgets and accomplish goals while working on a board. Whether it is my involvement with Take Stock in Children, Gulf Breeze High School Debate Team, Cub & Boy Scouts, Loaves & Fishes or Project Graduation, I have volunteered to serve my neighbors.I have always been passionate about education and our community and hope to have your support when you vote on August 28th. Thank you in advance for your consideration.Contact Ueberschaer at weiueberschaer@gmail.com or visit www.wei4s choolboard.comfor more information.Wei Ueberschaer runs for Santa Rosa County School BoardFrom left to right in the front row are Patty Burke, Chairwoman Mary Golden, Carmen Reynolds, Ann Lawrence, Kathleen Green and Tim Gunnoe.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 11, 2018 A5By Jonel Aleccia And Melissa Baileykaiser Health NewsWhen a loved one gets dementia, many families get no guidance on what to do about that persons guns. Here are legal and practical steps to stay safe. What can families do ahead of time?Talk to your loved one about how to safely transfer ownership of their guns if they should become incapacitated. Consider writing a "gun trust," a legal document outlining that process.Doctors are legally allowed to inquire about access to firearms when a person is diagnosed with dementia. But, experts say, they often dont. If the health provider doesnt bring it up, fami-lies should ask about gun safety along with other concerns, such as driving and use of kitchen appli-ances and power tools. What if a person with dementia wants to transfer their guns?"No one should hesitate to accept a gun from a family member who is choosing to turn the gun over because of demen-tia," said Lindsay Nichols, federal policy director at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Forty-eight states explicitly allow a person to transfer a gun to a family member without a background check, she said. In Connecticut and Rhode Island, a lawyer could justify the move based on interpretation of state law, but prosecution is unlikely, she said. What if family members dont want to accept guns?Some law enforcement agencies will temporarily store guns if theres a potential threat. In some cases, distressed families have dropped off firearms at gun shops or shooting ranges for safekeeping, though that is not ideal, noted Jacquelyn Clark, owner of Bristlecone Shooting, Training and Retail Center in Lakewood, Colo. Dealers may be able to buy or consign the guns. What if the gun owner doesnt want to give them up? By federal law, a person loses the right to buy or own a gun if a judge deems them mentally incompetent to make decisions. Family mem-bers usually have to go to probate court for this kind of ruling, where they can be appointed as a guard-ian and take control of the guns. What about veterans?Veterans who have been deemed mentally incom-petent to manage their finances also lose their right, under federal law, to buy or own guns. As of March, nearly 109,000 veterans were barred from gun ownership because of their enrollment in the Veterans Affairs fiduciary program. What if theyre making threats?In any state, police can take guns away from someone who threatens a specific crime. In the 11 states with "red flag" gun laws, law enforcement can seek a court order to tem-porarily seize guns from a person who exhibits dan-gerous behavior. In five of those states „ California, Washington, Oregon, Maryland and New Jersey „ family or household members can also initiate these gun-seizure requests. What if families want to keep the guns at home?Store the guns unloaded in a locked cabinet or safe, with the ammunition stored separately. You can also disable the guns, replace bullets with blanks or replace the guns with decoys, but that raises the risk of them being mistaken for a functioning weapon in an emergency.Sources: Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence; state legisla-tures; Texas Alzheimers and Memory Disorders program at Texas Health; Bristlecone Shooting, Training and Retail CenterWorried about grandpas guns? Heres what you can doGERMSSerious bacteria like staphylococcus (staph), E. coli and others easily spread with hand-tohand contact. National Handshake Day on June 28 might as well be renamed germ-spreading day.Washing hands is con-sidered one of the most effective ways to prevent bacteria and viruses from spreading, and prevent illness or infection. A surprising number of people dont wash their hands, according to a new survey commissioned by Hibiclens antibacterial soap.According to the survey of 1,000 American adults:€ 56 percent dont always wash their hands after covering their mouth when coughing. € Almost one in six people (18 percent) dont always wash their hands after going to the bathroom. € Nearly half, 49 percent of people, dont always wash their hands after blowing or picking their nose, a place where staph is commonly found in nearly 50 percent of a given population, according to the National Center of Biotechnology Information. SLEEPInsomnia causes and solutionsInsomnia is defined as having problems getting to sleep or staying asleep three nights a week or more for at least three months."When dealing with insomnia, its important to rule out medical issues that could be driving it. For example, restless leg syndrome and sleep apnea are two common problems that can lead to insomnia," says Dr. Craig Sawchuk, Integrated Behavioral Health, Mayo Clinic. "If an evaluation doesnt reveal anything, you may benefit from behavioral changes."He recommends first establishing a bedtime routine. Second, reduce the amount of wakeful time you spend in bed. If you get into bed and dont fall asleep within 20 minutes, get up and go to another room. Read, relax or enjoy a quiet activity until youre sleepy."By minimizing the amount of time you spend in bed awake, youre teaching your brain to associate your bed with sleep," he says. TIP OF THE WEEKA healthier, happier summer starts with these tipsSummer is the perfect time to start your resolu-tion to live a healthier life, and your path to success begins with these tips from Arla Cream Cheese.€ Take up an active, outdoor hobby. Whether its running, walking, gardening or swimming, all can help you burn calories, improve muscle mass and have fun. € Start your day off right. Eating right doesnt mean you have to spend a lot of time at the table. A spread of cream cheese on a whole-grain bagel or toast is a quick, nutritious way to start your day off on the right foot. € Grab some shades. Invest in a good pair of shades capable of blocking at least 99 percent of all ultraviolet A and B rays. Then make sure you wear them when youre outdoors. PREGNANCYMyths and facts about pain management in childbirthNearly half of firsttime moms (46 percent) said the pain they experienced with their first child was better than they expected, according to a survey commissioned by the American Society of Anesthesiologists.The survey revealed that many first-time moms held some false beliefs about labor pain management before they experienced childbirth:€ 74 percent thought you couldnt have an epidural after a certain time in labor (you can have one until the babys head begins emerging, known as crowning). € 44 percent feared pain at the epidural injection site would be prolonged. € 26 percent believed an epidural slows labor. € 20 percent believed only one pain management option could be provided during labor and 16 percent didnt know. Expectant mothers should work with their health care providers, including their physician anesthesiologist, to discuss what pain management methods may work best for them.For more information, visit asahq.org/labor.

Leftists altering the course of America Dear editor, In Americas history, there are three assassinations that altered the course of America to favor the political left. The reelection of Republican President Abraham Lincoln and newcomer, Democrat VP Andrew Johnson was the come together administration.Ž During the Civil War, Lincoln made promises such as forty acres and a mule to the newly-freed slaves. With his assassination by a leftist Democrat (todays Johnny Depp) actor, that promise went unfulfilled under Democrat President Johnson. Johnson instead chose to protect the wealth of the leftist, Democrat, southern plantation owners with their again oath to the United States saving their plantations from being broken up among the freed slaves being their only chance at fair reparations. John Kennedys presidency of ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your countryŽ was altered and leftist, Democrat Lyndon Johnsons message of ask not what you can do for your country but what your country can do for youŽ was his new pandering for the vote Great Society,Ž which continues today. Martin Luther King opposed the same leftist, Democrat party controlling the south and his 1968 assassination ended his Black backed voiced opposition of leftist Democrats. His assassin was a segregationist who worked on George Wallaces 1968 presidential campaign and platform for segregation located of all places in segregated Hollywood, CA., an elite white suburb of Los Angles, and the future location for the 1992 race riots. A leopard cant change its spots, only its tactics! Viva La Californias leftist Democrats of FaceCrook, Google, and others!STEVEN KING, MiltonLETTER TO THE EDITORHundred dollar car note, two hundred rent; I get a check on Friday, but its already ready spent.Ž „ Workin for a Livin,Ž as performed by Huey Lewis and the News In spite of low unemployment and a consensus that an economic recovery has taken place, wage growth continues to stall. If the economy is good, where are the highpaying jobs that can support a family? Unemployment is at its lowest level in 17 years and is likely to remain below 4 percent for the foreseeable future. Wage growth has often been a byproduct of tight labor markets: employers have to pay more to get good employees, or for that matter, any employees, because there is such competition for labor. But while wages have grown at over 3 percent per year since 2015, the rate of growth has stalled significantly. Wage growth was at its lowest level since the Great Recession (under 2 percent) in 2010, and has increased somewhat since then, but remains far below the 5 percent growth level achieved by the economy in 2000. The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates periodically this year based partly on these low unemployment numbers. Simply stated, wage growth has traditionally accompanied low unemployment, and raising interest rates is a hedge against inflation. So why arent paychecks getting considerably larger? Lets consider two aspects of our current economy: an aging populace and hyper-globalization. A large number of potential employees out there are growing older. But many business owners and employers are hesitant to hire and pay large salaries to older workers. We have shorter runways than our millennial peers. The median age in the U.S. is now over 38, more than a year older than it was only four years ago. The alternative, of course, is to hire to a younger person, a person with less experience but who may be willing to work for less. So unemployment remains low, but actual wage growth is stymied. Secondly, international business competition is exerting forces on our economy that we havent experienced since the late 1800s. When a foreign company makes a competitive product, while paying its workers far less than U.S. workers are paid, its difficult for American businesses to compete on price. So business owners save money by paying employees less and then pass those savings on to consumers in order to remain competitive in the international marketplace. Theres always been international business competition, but increasing hyper-globalization is creating a larger impact on our economy, and on the level of our wages, than at any time in American history. Theres just no way around it. Its complicated and confounding. The economy continues to improve; wages remain relatively flat. Margaret R.

McDowellHere are featured comments from our Speak Out hotline. BIKERS COULD GET HURT Im a frequent traveler of Munson Highway and Im wondering why if its against the law for an automobile to run a stop sign why is it not against the law for the bicycle Riders on the Blackwater Trail to avoid stopping at the stop sign. On the 4th of July there were many bicycle Riders going across the road. Its not a street. Its a highway, and they run across ahead of the traffic. They do not stop. They cannot read the stop sign. There needs to be a gate there or some kind of thing to make them stop before somebody gets killed... The people that ride bicycles do not understand that the highway traffic has the right of way not them. They have stop signs on their side of the trail and it is very dangerous for them to run across ahead of traffic because a log truck, a dump truck or maybe a vehicle such as that cannot stop. Its very dangerous for them.Mary KingWe welcome Santa Rosa County residents comments on local issues.Call 623-5887 to Speak Out.Ž Share your thoughts and your comment could appear in the print edition and on srpgressgazette.com.Say whats on your mind, but please be civil. Press Gazette staffSPEAK OUT: PRESS GAZETTE READERS CALLSThe conflict on the Mexican border is continuing and about to get worse. While a problem for decades, everything may ratchet upwards with a new president of Mexico. For the past decade or more, the focus has been on drugs and illegals. Most of those killed have been in Mexico, whether tortured, dismembered, hung from bridges or simply shot by cartels. The statistics are staggering. Mexico had over 29,000 murdered in 2017 with some estimates much higher, mostly cartel induced. But Brazil and Columbia also had much higher murder rates, nearly double. While in the U.S., combined with opiate drug use, over 60,000 were killed in 2017 from overdoses. Unfortunately, the situation is complicated by some legitimate pharmaceutical firms like Purdue, contributing massively to the opiate problem. Drug smuggling Central and South American countries are considered the most dangerous in the world with Mexico more dangerous than the worlds war zones. The growing, refinement, and shipment of drugs includes marijuana and more lethal crackcocaine, pure heroin, opiates and a list of methamphetamines and derivatives which flood the U.S. But the election of Lopez Obrador will change the dynamics dramatically and should raise the problem at the border to a whole new level. With Enrique Nieto as president of Mexico, the fight continued against the cartels with a cooperative spirit with U.S. authorities. But the results were disappointing. Obrador, an avowed leftist, says he will take a different approach. He will end the war against the cartels and legalize drugs. He says he will attack corruption and may offer amnesty and support to farmers. He will support any person from any country to pass through his country to the United States as he believes it is a natural right of all humans to do so. Borders be damned. Can you imagine a Mexico with legalized drugs? Recently the news has been consumed by as many at 50,000 illegal immigrants coming across our southern border costing the U.S. over $1 billion a year for housing and food for them in detention camps. Imagine facing an increase by five or tenfold? Broadcast news media and liberals in the U.S. have been screaming about children torn from mothers by ICE. Nobody wants to admit this is about to get worse. Currently, the cartels make thousands of dollars for each person who is smuggled into the U.S. It is as profitable or more so than drugs. The recent desire to keep the families together encourages cartels to pair up children with an adult to cross the border. We are dealing with a sophisticated human trafficking problem that cannot be addressed by hyper-exaggerated claims aimed to stir emotional outrage. Democrats call for an end to ICE. Some in Mexico now say that the U.S. will have to do its own dirty work. Obradors team says, "Let the U.S. defend their own border if they dont like it." The Obrador strategy is to lend aid to farmers and the extreme poor to pull them out of poverty. That is well intentioned but not likely to change much in the next few years. In the meantime, the cartels will grow in force, influence and power. Cartels and other gangs are focused on raising revenue in the billions from drugs, human trafficking, sex trafficking, robberies, kidnapping, and extortion. The money flowing is more than enough to ensure continued massive corruption of the military, police and politicians. Obrador wants to create a new law enforcement organization by removing the military from police type work and combining some military with police to create a new kind of National Guard. If the army and police are famously corrupted, how can a new National Guard avoid it? Obrador says Mexicos disabling problems are poverty, cartels and corruption. Obrador appeals to voters "hope and change" expectations, but dealing with widespread, intransigent problems in a broken society by being more tolerant and less committed to fighting drug cartels is more than wishful thinking. Without security and the rule of law, who will invest, create jobs, take market risk and focus on innovation? Dramatic approaches might include having the U.S. military and CIA join forces with select Mexican forces to attack the cartels en masse on the ground, air and sea. No way it will happen. What if we eliminated trade barriers to support employment and investment in Mexican factories? Not likely. What if we created a new treaty organization with Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Columbia, Brazil and others to focus on fighting gangs/cartels and provide safety for their citizens with a consequential rule of law? Call it the Continental Americas Security Action (CASA). Wishful thinking. The U.S. has invested trillions in the Middle East. Maybe its time to spend time and resources aiding our American friends. Right now, instead, it seems the border war will explode.The real border war is just beginning J O H N S H O E M A K E R JOHN SHOEMAKER

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 11, 2018 A7On Tuesday, the restaurant donated 100 percent of its proceeds to baby Grayson."We weren't expecting any of that," said Cory. "The CEO and operational man-ager both donated to the GoFundMe page. Everyone has been so kind. They told me 'work is just work; worry about your life.'" When baby Grayson was born, Cory admitted he was "terrified." Not only was this the first child for him and Lauren, but this birth would come with so many unknowns."I sat down and talked to God and asked him to make sure Grayson was safe and sound," Cory said Sunday afternoon after visiting Grayson in the NICU. "He came out and was so beau-tiful. I was so happy to see him." Right now, Grayson is fed through a catheter. Even after a transplant, he still faces a "lifelong battle," Cory said."If I could trade places with him, I would," he said. "But he's keeping us strong. We're ready to battle the insurance companies and get him the best care pos-sible. He's all that matters. Seeing his strength every day gives me that drive."Cory's brother has started a GoFundMe page that raised around $5,800 in its first five days„ a drop in the bucket compared to the medical bills they face. Lauren and Cory are planning to receive specialized medical care for Grayson at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center."They're going to have to put their lives on hold and possibly move to Cincinnati. And the medical bills keep piling up," said Summer Hearn, a family friend. "Keep them in your prayers. And if you can't donate, share the GoFundMe page."Support from the community has been encouraging, said Cory."It really has made this a lot easier to know that people care," he said. "The best thing we can do is be positive. And we're very grateful for all of the support." GRAYSONFrom Page A1Lauren Boatwright holds her son, Grayson.

** A8 Wednesday, July 11, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press GazetteReader Question: We are buying a home, and the agent suggested a home warranty to replace or repair things that wear out. The warranty covers such items for a year, after which time we can renew the contract or let it lapse. The cost of the coverage is over $400. We have asked people we know and the reviews from them range from it is a waste of money to a good idea. What is your opinion? Montys Answer: Home warranty contracts have been available for over 50 years. The experience gained over this period has allowed the providers, of which there are many, to tweak the language in their agreements to avoid misunderstandings with customers and also enable the industry to prevent excessive financial exposure. While home warranties are very different from home inspections, both business models operate on a certain degree of subjectivity, which leads to controversial interpretations. Interestingly, neither business model offers a warranty. A bad experience shapes opinions. On the other hand, many customers stand by the product as worthwhile. There are many instances where a home warranty provided peace of mind and cost savings for the owner of the contract. Some home components are quite expensive, and the cost of parts and technicians on service calls can add up quickly.Considerations in buying a home warranty € All home warranty companies are not equal. The contract language varies, they have different exclusions and coverage, they judge repair or replace differently, and the management of customer service departments is not the same. Do not expect a new furnace if the current one can be repaired. Be cautious in Internet searches for paid ads that rank companies by the cost of their ad. € Understand that you are buying a service contract and not a warranty. The name home warranty is part of the industrys problem because the very name promotes it as a warranty. State regulators do not agree from state to state whether a home warranty is an insurance policy. According to the National Home Service Contract Association (NHSCA), some states do not classify home service contracts as insurance. Neither Ohio, nor Pennsylvania, and others, consider a service contract insurance. The state of Wisconsin, as one of many, does regulate home service contracts through the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance. Consider checking whether or not your states insurance regulators watch over home service contracts. Insurance regulators may have more influence or power when there are misunderstandings with business than universal consumer protection laws. The fear factor of a business hearing from an insurance regulator is just behind hearing from the IRS. € Read the contracts yourself. You will be the one discussing your claim with the company if you have a claim. Do not ask your agent questions because they likely have not read the contract. If you have questions after you have read the agreement, you are better off calling or emailing the company with your questions. Email is the superior method if that option is available because you do not have to take notes; those email responses are superior to your notes if there is a future claim. Compare coverage in what appear to be your top three choices. For example, how far does the plumbing coverage go if you have well and septic systems? Are there deductibles? What doesnt the policy cover? € Consider the property. In a general sense, the age of a home is a prime consideration. With use and time, most components of a home wear out, discolor or become brittle. This example may be an exaggeration, but if the house is 100-yearsold and the appliances are 50-years-old, a warranty could likely be an asset. If the home is well constructed and less than 10-years-old, think about how far the $400 serv ice contract will take you if an appliance fails. Has the kitchen or bathrooms in an older home undergone renovation? € Start a fund. Start with the cost of the home warranty and add each month to build a reserve. Here is an article at https://dearmonty. com/costs-home-maintenance/that discusses how this method might work. € Personal considerations. For example, if you are not handy and do not like the idea of vetting contractors if something breaks down, a home warranty may be very appealing. Will you be remodeling? Many consumers believe never having a claim is the best result of buying a home warranty.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 11, 2018 A9Ive been lucky in that my father has always been an active part of my life. Even though hes lived across the country and two time zones away since I was 18-years-old, Ive never felt that distance defined our relationship. During the economic struggles of the early 1980s, he stayed home with me while my mother worked. My earliest memories of him include laying on the shag rug of our living room floor, my head leaning up against his stomach, watching TV, or going bowling with him. At the time, there were no bowling shoes small enough, so I just wore socks. Later, as I got older, wed lay pennies on the railroad track for fun or hed take my sister and me to the gas station for candy. My dad was the one who fostered our creativity. Wed scour through the craft aisle of Walmart on our weekends with him „ and hed let us choose which we project we wanted to create. Sometimes it meant puff paint T-shirts, or painting miniature wooden rocking horses; sometimes hed help us cut plywood into shapes of pumpkins, bats or candy canes to make holiday yard decorations. We rarely watched TV at his place, because we were busy creating „ its him that I credit with fostering my love of painting, of using my hands. When my husband and I got married, I was the one that brought the tools into the marriage. I was also the one who installed our light fixtures and ceiling fan, who painted half the house. It was my husband who installed the tile backsplash in the kitchen and built a bike shed last year for our kids „ because my father taught us how to. Dads are important like that, shaping us in ways we may not realize right away. But there are men out there, who we might not be genetically tied to, but who make just as much of a difference. Since I was 10-yearsold, theres been a man in my life who Ive simply called by his first name. In the early years, perhaps it took a while for me to warm up to Ron, because he was with my mom and was not my father „ I already had a dad. But he never tried to take my dads place. Instead, he was just there for my mom, my sister and me. He was there with us on family vacations, whether it was to Europe, to Canada or to the beach. I grew up swimming at the lake at his lakehouse, where I had too many birthday parties to count. Im thankful for all those times as a teenager that he let me bring my friends over to go out on the WaveRunner or to jump off the dock. As I walked up on the stage at my high school and college graduations, he was there, standing next to my mom. He was there every Christmas, every Thanksgiving. When I got married, he walked my mom down the aisle. When my sister got married a few years later, he walked her down the aisle, alongside our dad. When I was in the hospital in labor with each of my children, my mom was there. Ron was, too. My mom was always the first grandparent to hold my babies, soon after their birth. Ron was always next. Ive never called Ron "Dad" or "stepdad" and he and my mother never married. But somehow, over time, and especially after my children were born, he became a solidified father figure. Although my kids call him by his first name just as I always have, he is their grandparent. They dont know anything different, and I wouldnt have it any other way. My dad has been there for me and my family as much as he can be, living so far away. But he is thankful „ as am I „ that for all those times he couldnt be there, Ron has been. Whether you are a father to your biological children or a father figure to someone who is not, know that you make a difference.

Reach her at lydia.seabolavant@ tuscaloosanews.com.Fathers, father gures earn praiseBy Press Gazette contributorKINGS POINT, NY „ Robert Brice Moore of Pace recently graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) at Kings Point, NY. Moore earned a Bachelor of Science degree and a commission in the U. S. armed services. He also earned a Merchant Marine officer license, qualifying him to serve as an officer on any ship in the U.S. flag merchant marine.The United States Merchant Marine Academy is a federal service academy that educates and graduates licensed Merchant Marine officers. In addition to the rigorous academic and physical requirements for admission, appli-cants must be nominated by their Congressman or Senator.All USMMA graduates earn both a B.S. degree and a merchant marine license and incur an obligation to serve the United States. The U.S. Flag Merchant Marine„manned by U.S. merchant mariners„is essential for securing the countrys commerce in peacetime and delivering warfighters, weapons, and military supplies in times of conflict.The majority of "Kings Pointers" will serve as Navy reservists in the Strategic Sealift Officer Program while working aboard U.S. flag ves-sels. Others will serve on active duty in our nations armed forces. Due to their elite training and real-world experience, graduates are ready to go on day one in service of American military strength and economic power. As part of his four year education, Moore spent one year training as a cadet aboard ocean going vessels.This year marks the 75th anniversary of the dedication of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (1943-2018). Dedicated in wartime, USMMA has served the nation in both peace and war. As the first federal academy to admit women, USMMA will also celebrate the 40th anni-versary of the first women to graduate from any federal service academy. Learn more about the 75th Anniversary at www.WeAreTheUSMMA.comThe Academy welcomed Secretary of Defense James Mattis as the graduation speaker.He said, "I think whether you're going to be at shore or at sea, you're going to bind the muscles of American commerce and that's a simple reality because as small as our Merchant Marine may be today, it is absolutely essential. It's in every war plan that I review, I guarantee you, because you're going to be the fourth arm of defense. You're going to sustain our allies and fuel our ships and ferry our warriors. It's as simple as that and we're going to need you as we see the storm clouds gather elsewhere."For more information about the Academy, visit https://www.usmma. edu/.Paces Moore graduates U.S. Merchant Marine Academy L Y D I A S E A B O L A V A N T LYDIA SEABOL AVANT

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 11, 2018 B1 LIFESTYLEBy Kevin Boyer @kboyersrpg | 850-623-2120 kboyer@srpressgazette.comMILTON „ Main Street Milton is taking part in the Florida Main Street Photo Con-test. Images selected at the state level will be displayed at the July 30 Florida Main Street Annual Conference and on Florida Main Streets social media sites.Main Street has completed its photo contest and the win-ners have been announced. Out of 11 photographers who submitted 103 images, the top three selected were Jamie Amos, Kevin Yetman, and Hill-ary Clarke. What inspired you to take the pictures? Yetman: I did it during the arts festival. Before this I come down here probably ten times trying to get [a picture of] that bridge open. I got plenty of pictures of it closed but I wanted to get one of it open. It just happened to be open on that day during the arts festival, so I got my drone up to get a picture of the [river] and the bridge opened up, it look like a cool shot. Clarke: I thought that the river should be included in at least several of the pictures because I feel like it is such a main part of down-town Milton. So I actually went across the river to the other side of Milton and used a wide angle to capture as much of it as I can with the blue skies and cloud coverage. Amos: I love fog. So when its foggy out nothing is better to me because it has more of an impact to the his-torical area. It gives it a mood. So when I saw that it was foggy out, I headed to downtown. Is photography a hobby or a career of yours? Yetman: It was a hobby. Its now a career. Im an aerospace engineer, so I got into drones with my aerospace degree and then I decided to see what I could get into with drones in real estate photogra-phy. Clarke: Its a hobby. I do mostly landscape. Amos: Its a career. I have my own busi-ness. How did you react when you were informed that you had won the competition? Yetman: Hon-estly, the first thing I thought was that I should have edited that more. Then I thought, "Oh yeah, that is really cool„really excited."Clarke: It makes you feel good that something you worked hard at, that try to cap-ture something that people look at that see quality pictures will appreciate. It just makes you feel good. Amos: (There was) lots of screaming and dancing, maybe some fist pumps. I had a list of goals and and that was at the top of my list„to win a competition where I would feel like Im finally getting somewhere with my photography, and I achieved that goal halfway through the year. What advice could you give to any young photographers who might want to take this on as a hobby or career? Yetman: I use a drone. You have to be licensed, of course; there is a lot of liability there. If you crash it, you have to be insured. You have to be licensed through the Federal Aviation Administration. Theres a test you have to take. Its a pretty difficult test. I found it a little more difficult and Im in the industry. You have to fly in certain areas. Clarke: I would say take as many pictures as you can, especially with land-scape photography. Like with [my] picture in my opinion the clouds do everything in that picture. I took a picture that was a lot like that picture but it was kind of stormy looking. So even if you take 500 pictures, you may have four that turn out. Amos: Learn how to use your camera. You dont have to have the most expensive camera to take the best pictures. You need to learn how to use any camera you have to take the best pic-tures with what you have. The Main Street photo competition began in June when the call went out for votes. Community voting took place July 3 through the 6 through Main Street Facebook page.Main Streets executive director Ed Spears said the three winning photographs have been submitted to the Florida Main Street Photo Contest.The top three photos, one per community, will be on display for the duration of the conference. Winners will also be featured on Florida Main Street Website, brochure, Facebook, and Instagram.We are look-ing to make the [Milton] photo contest an annual event,Ž Spiers said. We had a very positive response to it this time.Ž The other photographers who submitted photos were Jim Berry, Hillary Clarke, Morgan Givens, T.

** B2 Wednesday, July 11, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press GazetteBy Laura FirsztMore Content NowWithered lawns, ruined roses, leaves that look like skeletons ... these are all examples of the destructive power of the Japanese beetle. Although this insect pest was first spotted on American shores over a century ago, in recent years its been growing strong and becoming a major nuisance. Why is the Japanese beetle so harmful and how can it be controlled? Why the Japanese beetle is harmfulSince its introduction to the United States in 1916, the Japanese beetle has spread to more than 30 states and its population has been growing phenomenally over the past decade. While the beetles are not dangerous to humans, they are a devastating threat to lawns, ornamental plants, and food crops. Management of these destructive insects costs the U.S. $450,000,000 annually.Japanese beetles destroy vegetation at two stages of their lives. Immature beetles (called "grubs") destroy lawns by eating grass roots and thatch, as well as the roots of bean, corn, strawberry, and tomato plants. These youngsters are difficult to get rid of because they live under-ground until maturity. Adult Japanese beetles continue the destruction above ground, skeleton-izing foliage. Theyre not picky „ besides leaves, these insects happily eat flowers and fruit, and will go after any one of over 300 plant species.Japanese beetle lifecycleHeres a closer look at the lifecycle of the Japa-nese beetle Summer, Year 1Eggs are laid 2-3 inches under the surface of the soil. Grubs hatch from these eggs after incubat-ing 8-14 days and still hidden below ground, start feeding on roots of lawns and garden crops. October-March, Year 1-2Grubs go dormant in the cooler weather. April, Year 2Grubs wake up from their winter slumber and spend the early spring hungrily attacking grass roots for 4-5 weeks. May, Year 2The grubs go through a pupate stage under the ground to metamorphose into adult beetles. June-July, Year 2Mature Japanese beetles emerge from the ground to mate and eat plants in the vicinity. This is also the time when the females lay eggs, starting the cycle all over again.Japanese beetle identificationLearn to identify Japanese beetles by their distinguishing signs at every life stage:€ Eggs are usually oval when newly laid but become more spherical as they mature. Theyre creamy-white to translucent and 1.8 mm in diameter. € Grubs are curled into the shape of a "C." They have a V-shaped pattern of hairs on their hind ends, visible under a magnifying glass. € Adults are 3/8 inch (10mm) long and shiny, with a green head and tan-brown wings. Their outstanding characteristic is tufts of white hair „ two at rear and “ ve along each side. € Prevent or get rid of Japanese beetle infestation PreventionAvoid importing plants or soil from a known area of infestation. If Japanese beetles have been detected in your locality, cover valuable plants with netting during the June-July feeding period to prevent the insects landing and wreaking destruction. (This is not advisable for plants that require bee pollination.) To protect rosebushes, cut off blooms during the Japanese beetle active season. DetectionSet out traps or lures to detect whether Japanese beetles are present in the area. These tools are also effective in getting rid of a small-scale infestation, although there is a risk of attracting still more bee-tles to your property. Treatment of minor infestationManually pick or shake beetles off the plants into soapy water, to clear up a very minor infestation. Biological controlDeal with a more serious Japanese beetle problem by fighting these insects with ... other insects. Ants, ground beetles, nematode worms, and some types of wasps can be useful in controlling Japanese beetles. Standard chemical controlNumerous chemical pesticides are effective against the Japanese beetle. Different formulas are appropriate for various stages of the beetles life, so consult a pest control professional for expert guidance and application. Organic chemical controlThe University of Wis-consin-Extension suggests spraying your plants with neem oil or spinosad, organic chemicals which are safe to apply to fruit and vegetable gardens after theyve bloomed.Japanese beetle: How to control its destructive powerOUTDOORSHow to attract pollina-tors to your gardenThe pollinator population is declining, but backyard gardeners can help.

Wash surfaces with soap and water, rinse well and allow them to fully dry. € Scrape and sand. Smooth the surface with “ ne-grit sandpaper, wiping it down with a damp cloth to remove any residue. € Dont forget the details. Use painters tape to protect window sills, molding, baseboards and the ceiling perimeter. Remove loose or cracked caulking from windows, doors and trim, and apply sealant. € Fill it up. Apply spackle to cracks and dents with a putty knife. € Paint with precision. Moisten rollers and brushes in water, as this will help the paint glide on. Allow the “ rst coat to dry, then apply a second coat. Once dry, carefully pull up any painters tape.PREPAREDNESSBe prepared for the 2018 storm seasonWhether they live in a coastal area that might be affected by a hurricane or anywhere else in the coun-try, many people are asking: What can I do to prepare for the 2018 storm season?
