Currently, park rules allow only skateboarders.Milton council July 10 hearda first reading of an ordinance to allow a set time for bicycles to be allowed in the park. Councilman Jeff Snow made a motion to approve the ordinance reading. However, without a second, the ordinance reading ÂdiedÂŽ in council. Councilman Casey Powell said that he would still like to see discussion on this topic at the committee of the whole meeting. ÂI donÂt feel confident that we have enough information to make a decision tonight,ÂŽ Powell said. ÂI would still like to have discussion so we can get a little more information on the subject.ÂŽMilton resident Tammy Brown spoke about her concern for having the bikes on the skate park prior to the reading. ÂThe park is amazing to me," she said. "It has made such an positive impact. IÂm not trying to alienate the BMX bikes. I just have some safety concerns. IÂm just very con-cerned about the merger.ÂŽ According to Brown, her son had wanted to work with Councilwoman Pat Lunsford with the initial idea for the skate park in 2007. After his unexpected death, Brown and her husband continued working with the council to see the park to completion in his memory, she said, which was named after him. Brown said while she was concerned about allowing the bikers into the park, she was in full sup-port of them having their own park and was willing to help find a place for one. ÂThe bikers need a place,ÂŽ she said. No bikes allowedMiltonÂs Steve Morgan Skate Park rules barring bikes from using the park will remain in place for now.

The last time MIA held an event in Milton was a back-to-school event in 2016.For those who donÂt remember MIA, President Morris "Moe" Smith with vol-unteers held workshops for area youth to foster character growth, got school supplies to students who needed them, played basketball and other games with the kids and more.At the time, MIA President Morris Smith said he and his family made the decision to move to Atlanta for the greater economic opportunities."As far as being happy and financially stable, everything pointed in the Atlanta direction, he said in 2016. "Of course, growth and opportunity goes along with happiness."Smith said MIA MIA shut its doors at the time since he could not find someone to take his place running day-to-day operations.So is MIA back? Not exactly.Smith said he took a broader position with MIA as the coordinator over chapters in not only Milton but also Atlanta and Tallahassee."With that I need folks to step up," he said, Saturday.

This year's third to first place winners were Chris Smith, Cindie Ponsell with Black-water Bay Tours and Lynda Vines with Bypass Radiator. The prize amounts were $250, $750 and $1,500 respectivelyThe Pyrates sell pairs of numbered, rubber ducks. The supporter receives one and the other goes in the race. To start the race, the Pyrates dump a bin of the ducks into the Blackwater River. A Pyrate designated the Duck King retrieves the winning ducks.This year's event was especially successful for the Pyrates, according to Cap-tain Carl "Boot" Whitson."We sold out around 3 p.m. the day of the event," he wrote in an email. "We adopted out 4,500 ducks at$5 a piece."Whitson couldn't give a final amount the Pyrates collected after expenses yet. Next year's race may see more contestants, Whitson said."There is a possibility we will have more ducks next year," he wrote. "Our orga-nization is always growing and one expectation is each member adopts out at least 20 ducks. Also we have a corporate sponsor committee that reaches out to local business to have the opportunity to be in the Great Milltown Duck race and support our mission by giving back to the community."The fundraiser supports the Pyrates' three-fold mission: river cleanup, maritime history preserva-tion, and boater safety and education.The Pyrates hold two river cleanups annually. The funds they raise help pay for equipment for these ventures. The Pyrates also partner with the University of West Florida and give grants to university students "doing research on the Blackwater River as well as the Milton and Bagdad community." The Pyrates have also supported the Bagdad Millsite Park and annually bring a historical presentation to the area. Finally, the Pyrates work with the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to provide boat inspections and help boaters meet their requirements with life jack-ets, sounding devices, and proper boat identification."There are numerous more examples to give, but in short, we are very proud of our crew and our efforts," Whitson wrote. "We are proud to live in a community where it is so nice to work with the City, County and the Chamber to be able to do what we do. So to all of them I say a big thank you!"Blackwater Pyrates announce Great Mill Town Duck Race winnersBy Press Gazette contributorMILTON Â„ Optimist Park located off Old Bagdad Highway at the corner of Parkmore Plaza is open once again after renova-tions making the park more Americans with Disabilities Act-friendly.Santa Rosa County Commission Chairman Bob Cole cut the ribbon officially reopening the park.Improvements include new pour-in-place rubberized surfacing, ADA-friendly play struc-tures, two shade structures with four benches, an ADA-compliant sidewalk system, two baseball fields, a pavilion and a dog park.The project cost of $300,000 was funded through the local option sales tax and District 2 rec-reational dollars.ADA upgrades to the walking track and restroom improvements are on schedule for future enhancements.Local Option Sales Tax funds park renovations From left are Blackwater Pyrate Mark ÂMurkyÂŽ Flores, Dean ÂMalteseÂŽ Hinton (this yearÂs Duck King), Captain Carl ÂBootÂŽ Whitson who is holding the check for third-place winner Chris Smith, Â“ rst-place winner Lynda Vines from Bypass Radiator, secondplace winner Cindie Ponsell from Blackwater Bay Tours, Margaret ÂFlorenceÂŽ Jones (this yearÂs Duck Queen), Blackwater Pyrate Wil ÂLeatherneckÂŽ Wilson, and Blackwater Pyrate Teresa ÂTerraÂŽ McCombs.

** A4 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette OPINION ANOTHER VIEW Dear editor, In today's society, the word "bigot" is being used a lot on many discussion social media platforms. What is the definition of bigotry? "An intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself." But what is an opinion? "A view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge." So bigotry can be based on or not based on "fact or knowledge," and to properly use the word there has to be "fact or knowledge" regarding and reflecting truth within that given opinion. Without this "fact or knowledge" being offered, the word alone is just leftist, superficial noise to drown out the conversation and the truth! This brings me to Andrew Carnegie's quote who said "He that cannot reason is a fool. He that will not is a bigot. He that dare not is a slave." He also said "You cannot push any one up an (economic) ladder unless he be willing to climb a little himself". What he didn't say was "everyone deserves a trophy." That came from the same leftist Democrats in today's society who, without fact or knowledge, now freely throw around the word "bigot" among their other insults to oppose fact and knowledge that revels the truth!Steven King Milton LETTER TO THE EDITORThis week the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) issued a report on the "trial penalty." According to the report, defendants "are being coerced to plead guilty" because the penalty for exercising their constitutional right to be proven gui lty beyond a reasonable doubt at trial is "simply too high to risk." According to the NACDLÂs website, the report identifies and exposes the underlying causes of the decline of the federal criminal trial and puts forth meaningful, achievable recommendations to address this crisis. The New York Times in 2014,"Prosecutors routinely threaten ultraharsh, enhanced mandatory sentences that no one Â„ not even the prosecutors themselves Â„ thinks are appropriate." Judge Gleeson said the way prosecutors use trial penalty, "coerces guilty pleas and produces sentences so excessively severe they take your breath away." The report contends that trial by jury has been replaced by a "system of pleas" which diminishes, to the point of obscurity, the role that the framers envisioned for jury trials as the primary protection for individual liberties and the principal mechanism for public participation in the criminal justice system. Guilty pleas have replaced trials for a very simple reason: Individuals who choose to exercise their Sixth Amendment right to trial face exponentially higher sentences if they go to trial and lose. Faced with this choice, individuals almost uniformly surrender the right to trial rather than insist on proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The report contends that defense lawyers spend most of their time negotiating guilty pleas rather than ensuring that police and the government respect the boundaries of the law. Beyond a reasonable doubt Â„ the bedrock of the criminal justice system Â„ plays no role in an alarming number of cases. What this means is that an insignificant number of offenders heading off to state or federal prison were proven guilty of anything. Sure, those defendants acknowledged their guilt by choosing to enter a guilty plea; but shouldnÂt the most revered legal system in the world provide something more in terms of protection for those accused of a crime? On the other hand, can the criminal justice system function without plea bargains? The plea bargain, however unpopular or unseemly, is a much needed tool in the administration of justice. If the plea bargain were to disappear the criminal courts would grind to a halt. Several years ago, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy said plea bargaining determines "who goes to jail and for how long. It is not some adjunct to the criminal justice system. It is the criminal justice system." Why shouldnÂt there be a trial penalty? What reasonably prudent defendant, represented by a reasonably competent attorney, would plead guilty if she knew a conviction at trial would bring the same penalty as pleading guilty. A defendant would have nothing to lose by going to trial. The number of trials would increase as would the direct appeals and collateral challenges. A system that is already overburdened would be pushed to the limit. The question is how to balance the fundamental principles of the U.S. Constitution with the mechanics of the criminal justice system? The NACDL report may well be a first step in finding that balance. Matthew T. Mangino is of counsel with Luxenberg, Garbett, Kelly & George P.C.

Â„ "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," as performed by The BeatlesRecently, I read about a fast food restaur ant chain that is investing millions into computerized food service. The customer programs his food selection, then robots make each hamburger to order, adding desired condiments and even slicing whole pickles with millimeter precision. Artificial intelligence has also been utilized recently in an attempt to recreate a Beatles song. Critics called the final product somewhat "emotionless," and noted that it sounded more like the Beach Boys than the Beatles, but the very fact that we've got the technology to attempt such an endeavor is disconcerting to human artists. Our ability to control, regulate and direct AI represents a significant signpost toward a healthy economy in the 21st century. So the viability of using cobots, or collaborative robots, in the manufacturing sector is especially encouraging. A 2016 study by the International Federation of Robotics reveals that fewer than 10 percent of jobs can be completely automated. Of course, that statistic suggests that 90 percent of tasks can be at least partially automated. Most of those jobs are currently filled by low wage, low skilled workers. Traditional robots require extensive programming. They are often cumbersome, relatively immobile and dangerous for nearby workers, and many perform their functions locked away from employees. Perhaps most importantly, their presence was a threat to employees because they replaced human hands. Specialized machines called cobots work in tandem with human workers and can help boost productivity, which then increases overall employment. Designed to shut down if a person crosses their path, cobots minimize worksite injury. Most require no sophisticated coding and are generally lighter and more mobile than traditional robots. Just under a quarter million global industrial robots were sold last year, and only 5 percent of these were cobots. But cobots, sometimes called flexible robots, could soon become an important component of the profitability of small manufacturing plants. As economist Gary Schilling wrote, "Collaborative robots that work alongside humans ... are getting cheaper and easier to program. And theyÂre safer and more user-friendly than earlier models that had to be caged to protect humans ... Cobots are being used in warehouses and are much cheaper in moving goods than miles of conveyor belts." Integrating technology like cobots into industrial manufacturing makes imminent sense to me, from a human standpoint. We simply cannot afford to invent and program ourselves into a state of high unemployment. But using technology as a complimentary feature on the factory floor is an evolved solution that can simultaneously assist us in achieving maximum efficiency and high employment. Margaret R.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 A5A report just in from the 15-year-old counselor-in-training I last wrote about. She writes, "IÂve just been recuperating from an amazing (but tiring) week at camp. It was such a great experience and I learned so much. IÂm in what we like to call a Âpost camp depressionÂ wishing to go back." Campers apparently sign up for oneor two-week stays, and the training for future counselors is organized accordingly. I learned further that she had 9and 10-yearold girls in her bunk, and for many of them it was their first year at camp. She had to deal with some homesickness and dehydration, explaining that with younger kids you canÂt get them to drink water and the heat made them tired. The solution was to have more water breaks during activities. She found that if one girl was homesick it led to others becoming homesick. However, once they were involved in activities, they got over it and the girls all had a great week. The goal for her group was that when they left they should feel that they wanted to come back. She herself learned more about how things work at camp and was surprised by how involved the CITs actually were. Although the counselors had more responsibilities they were more willing than she expected to let a CIT handle a situation Â… like a girlÂs homesickness. At times the line between the counselor and CIT was blurred. The difference from having been a camper herself was not only in the responsibility but also in having more freedom, such as at night when campers have a curfew. "You learn what it is like to be on the opposite side of how things go that you experienced as a camper," she said. Listening to these observations from a 15-year-old brought to mind the developmental theories of famed psychologist Erik Erikson, who defined the significant developmental stages of life. His stage 5, called "Identity vs, Role Confusion," refers to the adolescent years 13-21. According to Erikson, development from previous stages depends on what is done to an individual, whereas from this stage forward development depends on what the individual herself, does. This stage marks the shift from childhood to adulthood and is the turning point of human development, the time when the person develops the ability to search for his own meanings and directions, as well as others. Adolescents contemplate on the role they want to play in the adult world and learn to develop a solid relationship and commitment to their principles, ideals and friends. Erikson writes of possible confusion about what role they want to embody as they get to experience mixed feelings and ideas about how they will fit into society. It is interesting to contemplate how any individual situation fits EriksonÂs developmental description. In this instance what strikes me is this 15-year-old taking from her experience, "You learn what it is like to be on the opposite side of how things go that you experienced as a camper." Having recently been a camper she now has been exposed to the perspective of one in an authority role. This sounds like an important step on the road from childhood to adulthood. Young people tend to see the rules and regulations of parents and teachers as serving no purpose other than frustrating the youngstersÂ own wishes. My granddaughter sent me this quote from Charles William Eliot as her final thought: "I have a conviction that a few weeks spent in a well organized summer camp may be of more value educationally than a whole year of formal school work."

That can make the idea of eating nutrient-dense, high-fiber foods less appealing. All the while, it doesnÂt make you worry any less about get-ting all the nourishment the two of you need."With morning sickness, gassiness and managing the pain of swollen joints, feeling good during pregnancy can be a challenge for any woman," says Elizabeth Somer, registered dietitian and Vitamin Packs medi-cal advisor. "The good news is, there are lots of things you can do to main-tain a healthy diet and feel as good as possible during your pregnancy."Somer shares nutrition tips and the top nutrients to help you feel your best and support your health during pregnancy. Manage through morning sicknessNot long after you celebrate your pregnancy, morning sickness may settle in while your energy levels really start to lag. You can thank the surge of new hormones going through your body. At the same time, you may be concerned about getting enough folic acid (vitamin B9), as this is an essential nutrient that supports the babyÂs brain and spinal cord development.While nausea can dampen anyoneÂs desire to eat, itÂs important to make sure youÂre still nourish-ing your body. Try eating smaller meals throughout the day, donÂt lie down after eating, and always take your prenatal vita-mins with food. Choosing the right vitamins can help, too. Prenatal vita-mins from Vitamin Packs are made with organic ginger and a more absorb-able form of vitamin B6, helping to ease your upset stomach and nausea. Get the nourishment you and baby needSomer recommends every expecting mother take a multivitamin during pregnancy. One place to start is with a quick online assessment on Vitamin-Packs.com/prepostnatal/. Your medications, diet and health concerns will be factored into your personalized selection of supplements, so you can be assured that taking them will be safe and effective during this criti-cal time. You also can pull from their online library to get more information about any of their supple-ments. And, if you have any further questions or concerns about getting your nutritional needs met, a consultation with a nutritionist is just a phone call away. Mind your portions After you get past that challenging first trimester, youÂll most likely be more in the mood to eat. Remember, weight gain is perfectly normal and healthy. In fact, you will need to consume extra calories to support the changes and development taking place inside your body. By the time youÂre ready to give birth, your blood volume can go up as much as 60 percent, according to the American Pregnancy Association. Even so, steer clear of the "eating for two" m indset.

** A6 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press GazetteIÂve made ice cream lots of times. And every time, IÂve learned the same lesson: Start the day before you want it to be done. I think IÂve lectured you poor innocent readers about this issue almost annually for a decade. And my road to this most recent personal hell was paved with good intentions: I got the ingredients the day before. I came home and made a plan. I read through my recipes, scoffing at their suggested times Âthree hours,ÂŽ Âfive hours,ÂŽ Âtwo hours and 50 minutes.ÂŽ Pffft. Lies. All lies. And then the devil hopped up on my shoulder. ÂYouÂve already worked all day,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou could get up early tomorrow and have twice that amount of time to get those ice creams ready. Look: Most of them are no-churn. If you got them in the deep freezer by 10 a.m., theyÂd be hard as rocks by the time you had to leave for photos.ÂŽ Guess what I did next. ThatÂs right. I went to bed. 1. Well, I did get up early. And I did get those ice creams into the deep freezer by 10 a.m., and I would have been fine. However. Nothing was freezing. Even after several hours, all the ice creams were like mousse. Then I noticed when I went to make the Vegan Vanilla, which did require churning, that my ice cream churn barrel was not frozen. I could hear the liquid sloshing around inside it. ItÂs supposed to be solid. I keep that in the freezer all the time, so there was no reason for it not to be ready. Eventually, a light bulb went on in my head and I thought to check the dial. Sure enough, it was on a setting IÂll call ÂJust cold enough that you wonÂt notice until you really need it to be super cold, like when youÂre making ice cream.ÂŽ I cranked it up to Âabsolutely, positively, has to freeze ice cream solid overnight.ÂŽ That worked. 2. I loved making the Ice Cream Bombe. ThatÂs the layered bowl of mango sorbet, raspberry sorbet and strawberry ice cream. You squeeze, scrape or scoop the pints of mango sorbet into a chilled bowl and wrap a smaller bowl in plastic, push that into the sorbet and freeze. Then you take the raspberry sorbet and use a smaller bowl to mold it into the mango and freeze. Then you fill the middle with the ice cream and freeze again. It makes pretty stripes when you turn it over and slice it. Pro tip: DonÂt push down on the bowls too hard. I kind of pushed the raspberry sorbet hard enough that it broke through the mango layer and showed on top of the bombe. Try to leave at least an inch or so of each layer. It takes a little practice to do it just right. 3. When you go to make the no-churn ice cream, itÂs important that the cream and the bowl, and even the beaters, should be ice cold, so the cream whips up quickly and stays sturdy. That makes for a creamier ice cream. When youÂre mixing it with the other ingredients, be gentle and try not to beat all the air out of the whipped cream. Gently stir in any mixings you like. Strawberry takes particularly well to pretzel pieces, and chocolate to nuts. 4. The Watermelon Ice Cream would be a blast for a party where everyone would want to be eating ice cream at one time, like a birthday or dinner party. You hollow out a miniature watermelon like you would a pumpkin. An immersion blender helps with this. Cut the top off and stick the blender into the flesh of the watermelon and move it around and up the sides and down, and pour out the flesh into a large bowl. Reserve one cup for the ice cream and the rest for another use, such as chill and blend with strawberries for a healthy smoothie, or add vodka and mint and blend for a refreshing adult beverage. Use a large spoon to scrape the rest of the red fruit until you have a white shell and put this into the fridge to chill while you make the ice cream. Pour the ice cream in and freeze. I didnÂt get enough ice cream out of my first batch to fill the watermelon and in fact needed most of a second batch to fill it completely. 5. Let the watermelon and ice cream freeze several hours and then move it to the fridge for an hour or so before slicing into wedges. ItÂs a really cute idea, but one word of warning: Once the watermelon is sliced, itÂs kind of difficult to handle leftovers. I mean, imagine wrapping a rapidly melting wedge of ice cream. I tried it. ItÂs a mess. But if you have a good ice-cream-loving crowd, leftovers shouldnÂt be much of a problem. No-Churn Watermelon Ice Cream SlicesTotal time: 3 hours, 50 minutes; active time: 30 minutes; serves 6-10 Â€ One 4to 5-pound mini seedless watermelon Â€ One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk Â€ Pinch Â“ ne salt Â€ 2 cups heavy cream, chilled Cut a thin slice off the top of the watermelon, just enough to show the pink of the inside Â” esh. Stand the watermelon upright vertically in a large bowl. Place an immersion blender into the cut part at the top of the watermelon and puree the Â” esh, moving the blender in and around, following the shape of the inside of the watermelon. Be careful not to cut through the sides or bottom of the watermelon rind. Pour out the juice and reserve 1 cup for the ice cream; save the rest for another use. Using a spoon, scoop out any remaining red watermelon Â” esh so you have a smooth white interior (this is important so the melon freezes properly).

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 A7Truly Spokin Bike Shop owner Mark Woolson was disappointed about the failure of the ordinance. Woolson said he was at the skate park when police asked him to leave following a call about a bicyclist. ÂSkateboarders and bicyclers can get along,ÂŽ Woolson said. ÂIÂve been going there frequentlyÂ„thought I was breaking a rule, not a law, until it was explained to me last week.ÂŽWoolson said there is etiquette for skaters and bicyclists and it is the same for both. While there is always some danger involved with skaters and bicyclists sharing a park, he said, they can and should co-exist. ÂItÂs a shame that we have such a won-derful asset and we are not using it to its fullest potential.ÂŽ Woolson said. Snow felt the same. ÂIÂm disappointed.ÂŽ he said. ÂI think we still had time to get the information that this council needs. I hope that [council] truly takes the time to speak with staff are very educated with this.ÂŽ Mayor Wesley Meiss said that while the motion did not pass, the issue would be readdressed at the 3 p.m. committee of the whole meeting July 19 and that he would be doing research on it.ÂWe want to make the best decision for Milton,ÂŽ Meiss said. BIKESFrom Page A1 Smith held SaturdayÂs workshop in conjunction with Guy Thompson Com-munity CenterÂs Coach Bubba and Pensacola non-profit 2Wins.When not working as a railcar technician out of Pace at Eastman Chemical, Bubba uses basketball as a vehicle to mentor youth at the community center.A self-described sports and life coach, he said, "I want to be an impact. IÂve built a lot of relationships with kids and families offi-cially since 2011ÂƒI want to motivate kids to believe in themselves, to be account-able and socially competent, to know whatÂs going on in the worldÂƒKids need people to believe in them so they can believe in themselves." 2Wins not only uses bas-ketball to reach kids, but also chess.Jerimey and Jermaine Tart are the president and VP of the roughly two-year-old organization.Speakers like a Walmart general manager, a personal trainer and a makeup artist spoke to youth at 2Wins events, "someone they can touch," Jermaine said. These speakers represented achievable success, accord-ing to Jermaine, unlike NFL or NBA stars.Incorporating chess into the 2Wins curriculum builds up youth in a number of areas, according to Jermaine, including self esteem, memory, problem solving."I can feel myself getting smarter," Jermaine said, quoting a 2Wins youth participant.2Wins also cares about the community as much as the individual. 2Wins takes part in MAD activities, making a difference. These could be a commu-nity cleanup, a shoe drive or helping other organizations like the epilepsy foundation, Jermaine said.The workshop Saturday involved teaching the youth about legacy. Smith and the other leaders discussed with the youth famous people who left a legacy like President John Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr."What do you want to leave behind?" Smith asked the kids. He talked about the superior importance of good character over money."If I had all the money in the world, but I treated everyone bad, would you want to be around me?" he asked them.Regarding raising his own children, Smith said, "What I teach them is more impor-tant than money. If I leave my kids $500,000, I better teach them how to keep that $500,000."Smith also addressed family versus individual legacy."Your legacy lives through othersÂƒIt can start with you. It can stop with you. Are you living a life worth somebody talk-ing about?"Follow the Press Gazette to see when the next MIA event will take place. YOUTHFrom Page A1Currently, Whiting Field trains nearly 1,200 pilots each year in the basics of flyingÂ„ 600 in fixed-wing aircraft, 500 in helicopters, and an additional 100 pilots in tilt-rotor aircraft.ÂWe are the busiest naval air station in the world,ÂŽ said Capt. Paul Bowdich, commanding officer at NAS Whiting Field, as a cake was cut Monday to mark the facil-ityÂs birthday.ÂLast year, Hartsfield-Atlanta (International Airport) had about 879,000 flight operations as the busiest commercial airfield in the nation,ÂŽ Bowdich said, Âand here at Whiting Field, Training Air Wing 5 conducted over 1.1 million flight operations.ÂŽEstablished in 1943 as a Naval Auxiliary Air Sta-tion, the initial mission of Whiting Field was basic and radio instrument instruction. The installation is named for Capt. Kenneth Whiting, a Navy aviator who was the final aviator trained by Orville Wright. Whiting died just three months before the facility was dedicated. His widow Edna was on hand for the dedication.In addition to the helicopter and fixed-wing flight facilities at Whiting Field itself, the Naval Air Station has 12 outlying fields in Northwest Florida and Alabama. Those fields provide opportunities for pilots to learn a variety of skills, from aircraft-carrier-based jet operations to landing helicopters in forested areas.Following the Monday celebration, Bowdich pointed out that NAS Whiting Field has a $1.43 billion annual economic impact on Santa Rosa County.ÂWeÂre very proud of the economic impact we have,ÂŽ he said.Asked to account for the longevity of the installation, Bowdich said no other facility in the coun-try has the number of outlying fields that are available at NAS Whiting Field.And while none of the Whiting Field leader-ship at MondayÂs briefing would comment on the potential of future Base Realignment and Closing Commission actions might have on the installa-tion, Capt. Douglas Rosa, commander of Training Air Wing 5, noted that the mission at Whiting Field is expanding, and will soon include pilot training for the MV-22 Osprey, the Marine CorpsÂ version of the U.S. military tilt-rotor aircraft.ÂOur production requirements are increas-ing,ÂŽ Rosa said.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 B3By The American Heart AssociationJust back from a run with her husband, Laura Metro heard her 6-year-old daughter, Maison, screaming, ÂI think Clay died! I think Clay died!ÂŽ MetroÂs 3-year-old son, who was swimming with family friends, was found at the bottom of the pool with his towel. One friend started CPR Â… or the closest thing he knew based on what heÂd seen on TV Â… on ClayÂs blue, lifeless body. Paramedics arrived and got ClayÂs heart beating again. He was taken by helicopter to the hospital and spent two days in a coma before making what Metro calls Ânothing short of a miraculous recovery.ÂŽ ÂThe doctors said, ÂWe donÂt know why heÂs alive. The only thing Â… the only thing Â… we can attribute it to is the bystander CPR,ÂŽ Metro said. He didnÂt see the inside of a hospital for an hour and a half after almost drowning. The bystander CPR Âwas really what did it.ÂŽ Drowning is the third-leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide, accounting for 7 percent of all injury-related deaths, according to the World Health Organization. The agency estimates there are 360,000 annual drowning deaths worldwide. The MetrosÂ good fortune is anecdotal evidence of the findings from a study published in the June 2017 edition of the journal Resuscitation, which found that chances for neurological recovery from a neardrowning increase when the victim receives CPR from a bystander. ÂWe would advocate for parents knowing CPR, and particularly if they have a pool, they should become familiar and get trained in mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing,ÂŽ said Dr. Michael Sayre, a professor of emergency medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle. ÂWhereas hands-only CPR is typically focused on someone who is not in the water and collapses suddenly for other reasons, people underwater die because of lack of oxygen.ÂŽ After ClayÂs recovery, Metro founded a nonprofit called CPR Party, using the model of at-home shopping parties to encourage people to teach and learn CPR. The lessons arenÂt equal to official CPR certification, Metro said, but Âthey will know what to do and hopefully, we create a bridge to certification. We just give them that basic knowledge to empower them.ÂŽ About one in five people who die from drowning are 14 years old or younger, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And for every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal injuries, often including brain damage. The numbers are particularly discouraging, experts say, because in many cases, drowning is preventable. ÂThe biggest thing we try to get through to people is you need to maintain constant, active supervision when people are in the water,ÂŽ said Adam Katchmarchi, executive director of the National Drowning Prevention Alliance. ÂRegardless of age and swimming ability, you should never swim alone. You should always swim around someone whoÂs keeping that vigilant watch over the water, whether that be a parent in a backyard pool or whether youÂre swimming in a lifeguarded area.ÂŽ On its website, the NDPA stresses what it calls Âlayers of protection,ÂŽ including swimmer training, facility safety and parental responsibilities designed to prevent drowning. Drowning can happen quickly and silently, without warning, Katchmarchi said. ÂWeÂre used to the ÂBaywatchÂ drowning, where people see on TV that someoneÂs going to be waving their arms and screaming for help,ÂŽ he said. ÂAn actual drowning victim, when theyÂre in that 20to 60-second fight for survival, theyÂre unable to call for help because all of their energy is being used to keep their head above water. A lot of times theyÂre bobbing up and down, going under and re-emerging and trying to get air, so itÂs really difficult for them to call out for help,ÂŽ Katchmarchi said. ÂItÂs really easy to say, ÂOh, IÂm watching my kids,Â but youÂre scrolling through Facebook or your Twitter feed. Âƒ Even if youÂre distracted for just a short period of time, it can happen really quickly and really silently.ÂŽ EXERCISEDANCING GOOD FOR THE BRAINResearchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago found that older sedentary adults who participated in a Latin ballroom dance program reported improvements in memory, attention and focus. The Mayo Clinic o ers the following tips to get dancing: Â€ Sign up for a dance class at a community college, YMCA, dance studio or community center. Â€ Try dancing at home by following along with a free exercise video from the National Institute on AgingÂs Go4Life YouTube channel. PSYCHOLOGYIMPROVE YOUR MOODThe following tips to improve your mind and mood come from onegreenplanet. org. Â€ Do something you love every day, like writing in a journal or practicing a favorite hobby. Â€ Ditch the negative self-talk. Â€ Eat your B vitamins like B3, B5, B6, B7 and B12. Â€ Eat more plantbased foods to help relieve depression, anxiety and promote mental clarity.

Â„ Brandpoint HEALTHTODAYÂS WORKOUTUse this combo move for a quick workout By Marlo AllevaMore Content NowOn the days you donÂt feel like working on your fitness, aim for moves that target multiple zones, and you will be done in no time. Our move today is a wide squat with a side crunch. You will be working your lower body, quads, glutes, hamstrings, inner thighs and also your core. Begin this combo move by placing your feet out in a wide stance, angling the toes outward. Lower your torso by bending in the knees. Push your hips slightly forward to engage the abdomen and hold your chest tall. Place each hand gently behind the ears or neck and you are ready to move. Keeping the lower body engaged in a squatting position, begin to bend to one side. Keeping the elbows out from the body, guide the chest with the bent elbow. Once you reach your deepest contraction on one side, return to the start. And continue to the opposite side. Keep this side-toside crunch going for at least five to 10 times on each side. Stand from the squat, and give your legs a short break, then return for the next set. Give yourself at least three to five sets of this combo movement. For variation, you can add light hand weights, or stand from the squat if it becomes too much to hold while you are crunching. This move can be done on its own, as it is targeting multiple areas, but also great to add into a lower body/core routine. Whatever you choose, just do it. YouÂll be glad you did when you are done.
