Council voted at a special city meeting on Aug. 30 to hire Randy Jorgenson as the permanent city manager.Mayor Wesley Meiss proposed the idea after announcing that the candi-date that the city selected for the position had turned down the offer made to them.ÂOver the past several months, council worked hard to pick the right candidate for the position,ÂŽ Meiss said. ÂI think we made a great deci-sion but due to circumstances beyond our control, it didnÂt work out.ÂŽMeiss said Jorgenson had been doing an excellent job as interim manager and asked council to make a motion to have the city attorney begin negotiations.Councilman Alan Lowrey agreed Jorgenson had per-formed well but said Jorgenson hadnÂt applied for the job and felt he should go through the same process and background check as all other candidates.Jorgenson said that he did enjoy doing the job and found it Âentertaining.ÂŽJorgenson has been per-forming the duties of the city manager since the dismissal of Brian Watkins earlier this year. He said he had indicated to the council when the search began for a new city manager that he would not apply for the position but he would be ÂdraftedÂŽ if the council felt he was right for the position.The council voted 7-1 to appoint Jorgenson as the permanent new city manager pending negotiations.

Student Transporta-tion of America, the company that is in charge of buses for the county is facing multiple issues. Denis Gallagher, Vice President of Operations for the southwest, issued a letter to the county outlining the issues. Those included problems with the radio communication on buses during the first week, the publicÂs inability to com-municate with office staff due to low staffing, and an error in the functionality ofthe newly designed ÂSafeStopÂŽ app.According to its website, SafeStop is a school bus track-ing app.It offers real-time school bus updates, showing parents and school administrators where the bus is along its route, while theestimated times of arrivalare displayed for each bus stop.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 A3 By Press Gazette contributorMILTON Â„ JoAnn Giles came to Milton aroundfour years ago and found the new life she was seeking."I came for a vacation and decided after retirement I wanted to live here," she said. Having an opportunity to see the world while working for a beverage distribution center, she said she appreciated the slower pace of life."My daughter moved here 20 years ago," she said. "It would be nice to live near family, too. I have two other children who live in Ken-tucky, where I lived before."Giles said she enjoys work-ing with other seniors at the Guy Thompson Community Center and especially participating in Bingo. "I enjoy being around people, driving the golf cart to help people get from their car, selling raffle tickets and beading class. IÂm a RSVP volunteer, too."JoAnn is highly appreciated at the Guy Thompson Com-munity Center. Joe Paschal, Senior Program Coordina-tor for the community center said she is one of many won-derful volunteers who not only helps throughout the year but also is a valuable RSVP volunteer."Jo is a thoughtful, giving person who so selflessly spends much of her personal time, energy and resources helping senior citizens both at the Guy Thompson Com-munity Center but also throughout the community. Jo also serves on our Senior Activity Committee helping the staff and me come up with program ideas and ideas on how to better serve our participating Senior Citi-zens. She spends countless hours volunteering with our regularly scheduled activities such as our monthly dance, weekly bingo as well as our ongoing special events throughout the year. Jo is a very special person who defi-nitely deserves this special recognition," said Paschal.One of the most interesting instances Giles enjoyed sharing is the contest she won in 1972 as a Loretta Lynn look-a-like."Loretta Lynn has always been an idol for me. IÂm a coal minerÂs daughter, too from Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. IÂd always been told I looked like her. IÂve been mistaken for Loretta several times.Once in Pigeon Forge and in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry. IÂd gone back stage at the Opry to meet her and someone tried to cut my hair," said Giles.SENIOR SPOTLIGHTJoAnn Giles nds new life in MiltonBy Lydia Seabol AvantMore Content NowMy husband opened the door to our 3-year-oldÂs bedroom around 6:45 a.m. last week, when he normally wakes her up so the kids can get to school."Good morning!" he said cheerfully."DONÂT TALK TO ME LIKE THAT!" our preschooler cried out, hiding her head under her blankets.I think itÂs safe to say that sheÂs not a morning person.Our two oldest kids, ages 7 and 9, are happy to wake up at the crack of dawn, no matter the time of year or whether itÂs a weekend or weekday. Luckily, my husband is also a morning person, and never could sleep in, even if he tried. When our kids were babies and toddlers, my husband used to relish the early morning hours before work, because it was a special "daddy" time where he could hang out with the kids, curled up with them in the recliner, watching cartoons while the kids were still in their footie pajamas.There are some kinds of people who are inherently cheerful when they wake up early in the morning. Threefifths of my family is that way. I am not one of them, and apparently neither is my 3-year-old.Since my husband and I had our first child almost a decade ago, weÂve had this unsaid policy: IÂm the one to get up at night with the kids. My husband is legally deaf, so it never made much sense for me to wake him up after I was already awakened by a crying child. When the kids were babies, I breastfed them too, so my involvement was kind of a necessity anyway. I can handle the middle of the night, stumbling down the hallway in the dark with one eye shut. I can handle changing diapers in the pitch black or fumbling around the kitchen for a sippy cup at 3 a.m.Mornings challenge weary momBy Press Gazette contributorGULF BREEZE Â„ Gulf Islands National Seashore officials have closed the Fort Pickens and Perdido Key Areas, as well as the Opal Beach Day Use Area ahead potential tropical impacts from Tropical Storm Gordon.All campers in the parkÂs Fort Pickens Campground have been ordered to evacuate by 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 4.The Okaloosa, Fort Barrancas, and Naval Live Oaks Areas will remain on their normal operating schedules at this time, but their status may change with conditions.Park status updates will be posted online at www.nps.gov/GulfIslands, www.Face-book.com/GulfIslandsNPS, and www.Twitter.com/GulfIslandsNPS.

** A4 Wednesday, September 5, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette OPINION Felix Ungar: "I think I'm crazy." Oscar Madison: "If it makes you feel any better, I think so too."Â„ From "The Odd Couple"The sound of audiences laughing at his material provided the affirmation that his own childhood denied him. My favorite film adaptation is "The Odd Couple," released in 1968 and starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. Characters Oscar Madison and Felix Unger cohabit Madison's New York apartment while Unger and his wife endure a separation. Madison is a total slob who is driven insane by Felix and his obsessive neatness. Mike Nichols won his first Tony Award for directing it. "Barefoot in the Park" made Robert Redford a star. And Burt Bacharach scored his musicals. His plays enjoyed 9,000 performances on Broadway in a 15-year period (1965 to 1980), with four running simultaneously in 1966. He wrote "Brighton Beach Memoirs," "Biloxi Blues," "Lost in Yonkers," "The Prisoner of Second Avenue," "Plaza Suite" and many more. Neil Simon was born in the Bronx on July 4, 1927. His salesman father left and returned repeatedly. Eventually the family dissolved and Neil was shuffled off to live with relatives. Several of his plays, including "Lost in Yonkers," draw from his early life experiences. Simon was awarded a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize for that play. After his discharge from the Air Force, he began writing comedy sketches for Phil Silvers and Sid Caesar. His first play, "Come Blow Your Horn," was written in 1961 and enjoyed 677 performances. Simon wrote about middle class people, their foibles and funny mannerisms, and the struggles of families, marriage, and everyday living. After his first wife died of cancer in 1973, he married actress Marsha Mason and wrote what he considered his favorite play, "Chapter Two," based on their marital strife. "Biloxi Blues" was developed from Simon's own military experiences in Denver. Simon died recently at age 91. From a relatively impoverished and dysfunctional upbringing, Neil Simon rose to the top of his profession as a playwright. He took the everyday agony and unhappiness surrounding him, and turned it into professional success through good humor, hard work and immense natural talent. Perhaps it is hyperbole, but one critic called him the most prolific playwright since Shakespeare. There is a common misconception that rich, successful Americans inherit their place in society from their similarly wealthy parents. While exposure to handling financial issues can provide a leg up, a person must develop his or her own financial and career success, regardless of background. Many times, the desire to escape and deal with dysfunctionality or poverty can provide remarkable financial motivation to achieve. Margaret R.

Join the discussion at our Facebook page, Santa Rosa Press Gazette, or tweet us @srpressgazette. In the highly partisan swamp of D.C., Paul ManafortÂs biggest crime was being TrumpÂs campaign manager. Michael CohenÂs crime was being TrumpÂs lawyer. Cohen got off easy when he agreed to turn on Trump for a potential violation of campaign spending laws. As the judge said, prosecutors pressure witnesses to Âsing, or compose.ÂŽ Keep in mind that Obama had over $2 million in similar campaign finance law infractions, and that high profile, wealthy men like Trump are targets of women like Stormy Daniels all the time. They get paid off when they threaten reputations. ItÂs very common. In fact right now Omarosa is on the loose once again, trying to find a wealthy man who is high profile enough for her to claim he said the ÂN-word.ÂŽ For anyone paying attention, the takeaway from all this is the frantic and political manner in which government is spending our tax money to ÂgetÂŽ Trump. MuellerÂs investigation was supposed to be about Russian collusion. Now it has turned into The National Enquirer. Now, fittingly, MuellerÂs tabloid investigation has given immunity to National Enquirer Chairman David Pecker. Mueller hopes to squeeze him for information to get Trump on a procedural campaign finance disclosure violation. I guess if you are Trump and someone has to roll over on you, itÂs a good thing itÂs not Chris Christie. If you give the ex-FBI Director $40 million, a big hyper-partisan Democrat donor staff, and all our lawslayered-upon-laws, they will get 90% of us if they want to. WeÂve created a hyper-partisan governmental vigilante police state. What should worry us all, Democrats included, is this: Is this the legal system we want, one that indicts out of political vengeance? If political grifters like Manafort and Cohen committed crimes dating back to 2006, why didnÂt our crack law enforcement get them before now? And how does Cohen not pay taxes on $4.5 million in taxicab income in a supposedly heavily regulated business? Cohen was TrumpÂs fixer. All Trump needed was a heavy who, through hook or crook, could silence all TrumpÂs paramours of the past to advance him politically. One needs experience in this dirty arena so, rather than blasting Hillary Clinton, he should have hired Madame Secretary. By weaponizing criminal law for political gain, this ÂSpecial CounselÂŽ is about to spend $40 million to indict folks in TrumpÂs universe. And has Mueller taught us anything? Oh we get it: Trump digs chicks. Special Prosecutor Mueller is now investigating obstruction of justice on a ÂRussian collusionÂŽ crime that never happened. The ÂinvestigationÂŽ has morphed into a TMZ-like joke. Stormy Daniels is raking in the money. She just introduced her new perfume, ÂCollusion.ÂŽ You put it on, rub your wrists together, and you smell just like you tripled your appearance fees at strip clubs. One positive thing has happened with all this legal/political theater: Now everyone on Facebook has a law degree. Democrats and Republicans are bickering so much that we citizens feel like teenagers whose parents are going through a nasty divorce. But you have to hand it to Trump. In all this chaos, he is holding the country and his marriage together. In the South we call this Âgood people skills.ÂŽ The FBI, long given immense and unaccountable powers to arrest and ruin American lives on a whim, is finally facing some real consequences of its own hubris. Future genuine prosecutions will be damaged by the bad acts of Messrs. Strzok, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein and Ohr, and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page. It will take years to repair the reputations of the FBI and DOJ. We realize now that the presumed reverence for these organizations we are conditioned to believe was misplaced. Even liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz says, ÂCriminalizing political differences hurts democracy.ÂŽ We must stand up to politically motivated prosecutions. Should America die next week, the police investigation would say there were no signs of struggle. Ron Hart is a libertarian op-ed humorist and awardwinning author.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 A5 The Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Â„ For the last seven years, inmates have stocked the libraries of their personal MP3 players with $2 downloads. Come January, theyÂll be forced to hand it all over because the Florida Department of Corrections signed a new deal with a com-peting company. In April last year, the Florida Department of Corrections struck a deal with JPay. The private company, spearhead-ing a push to sell profit-driven multimedia tablets to incarcer-ated people across the country, would be allowed to bring the technology to every facility in the nationÂs third-largest prison system. But there was a catch.Inmates had already been purchasing electronic entertainment for the last seven years Â„ an MP3 player program run by a different company: Access Corrections. For around $100, Access sold various models of MP3 players that inmates could then use to download songs for $1.70 each, and keep them in their dorms.The demand was clear. More than 30,299 players were sold, and 6.7 million songs were downloaded over the life of the Access contract, according to the Department of Correc-tions. ThatÂs about $11.3 million worth of music.Because of the tablets, inmates will have to return the players, and they canÂt transfer the music they already pur-chased onto their new devices.Scott Larsen is the sole provider for his 68-year old brother, who is incarcerated at Union Correctional Institution in Raiford.ÂMy brother was a musician, and music is very important to him,ÂŽ said Scott Larsen. ÂThe MP3 player was a good source of entertainment and peace of mind for him.ÂŽLarsen said he will be able to help his brother rebuild his music library, but there are many other inmates, especially elderly ones, who donÂt have the money or family support to do so.The Department of Correc-tions, meanwhile, has collected $1.4 million in commissions on song downloads and other related sales since July 2011.The multimedia tablet contract with JPay presents another money-making opportunity.JPay already operates bank-ing accounts and facilitates phone calls at the state-run prisons, charging inmates and their loved ones steep fees for the services. With the intro-duction of tablets, JPay will add a wide swath of new spending incentives for its incarcerated customers, offering purchases of music, emailing and other virtual fare.The resulting download spree will funnel more dollars back to the Department of Cor-rections, which gleans $2.75 from each inmate money trans-fer onto the JPay-controlled bank accounts used to purchase the services. The department has already been bringing in record commissions from JPay money transfers, even before the introduction of the tablets. The agency received $3.9 million in commissions from JPay account transfers between April 2017 and March 2018.In the Access Corrections contract, revenue left over after paying to run the program went back in a general fund controlled by the Legislature. But in the JPay contract, the Department retains any excess revenue in its Administrative Trust Fund.The Times-Union has for the last several months requested line-item expen-ditures from the fund, but has yet to receive anything more detailed than general catego-ries. In the 2016-2017 fiscal year, about $718,000 from the fund was used to pay out settleme nts.Sales of the Access Corrections MP3 players in Florida prisons were halted in August 2017, when the department began implementing the new JPay tablet program.Inmates were caught off guard when they learned they would not be able to keep their music or transfer it to the new tablets. Hundreds wrote grievances.The volume of complaints was such that, in December 2017, the Department of Cor-rections created a new code to track the complaints. Since then, more than 260 additional appeals have been received.Patrick Manderfield, spokesman for the Department of Corrections, said the switch is meant to introduce updated technology that will help inmates connect with their families and provide educa-tional opportunities, whereas the MP3 players offered only entertainment. He said the songs cannot be transferred because the Âdevices/services are provided by two different vendors.ÂŽPrisons to take Florida inmatesÂ MP3 players

A Dem!ÂŽThe presidentÂs attack came after Trumka appeared on ÂFox News SundayÂŽ over the week-end where he said efforts to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement should include Canada. Trumka, whose organization is an umbrella group for most unions, said the economies of the United States, Canada and Mexico are ÂintegratedÂŽ and ÂitÂs pretty hard to see how that would work without having Canada in the deal.ÂŽTrump said Saturday on Twitter that there was Âno political necessityÂŽ to keep Canada in NAFTA. But itÂs questionable whether Trump can unilaterally exclude Canada from a deal to replace the three-nation NAFTA agreement, without the approval of Congress. Any such move would likely face lengthy legal and congressional challenges.Trump administration negotiations to keep Canada in the reimagined trade bloc are to resume this week as Washington and Ottawa try to break a deadlock over issues such as CanadaÂs dairy market and U.S. efforts to shield drug companies from generic competition.Trump wants to get a trade deal finalized by Dec. 1.Trumka also said of Trump: ÂThe things that heÂs done to hurt workers outpace what heÂs done to help workers,ÂŽ arguing that Trump has not come through with an infrastructure program and has overturned regula-tions that Âwill hurt us on the job.ÂŽAsked about the low unemployment rate and economic growth, Trumka said Âthose are good, but wages have been down since the first of the year. Gas prices have been up since the first of the year. So, over-all, workers arenÂt doing as well.ÂŽOn Monday, Trump touted the economy, saying ÂOur country is doing better than ever before with unemployment setting record lows.ÂŽ He added, ÂThe Worker in America is doing better than ever before.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 A9Child advocacy center to break ground for new building Staff report MILTON Â„ The Santa Rosa KidsÂ House celebrated its 10th year of service to the community this June. The celebration included lunch and cake for everyone. Children enjoyed balloons, toys and visits with friendly K-9s from Klaas Kids. The Klaas Kids foundation provided fingerprinting and DNA kits for all the children who participated in the celebration. Santa Rosa KidsÂ House is a child advocacy center whose mission is to deliver a well-coordinated and multidisciplined response to child abuse in an environment that puts the needs of children first. There are seven agencies housed under one roof Â„ the State AttorneyÂs Office, Santa Rosa Sheriff Department, Department of Children & Families, Child Protection Team, Florida Therapy Services, Guardian Ad Litem and Lutheran Services. In addition to those agencies, the SRKH staff consists of the executive director, two victim advocates, administrative assistant, and a parttime data clerk. In the last year, more than 740 children were served at the facility. SRKH prides itself on the personal care given to the children and families who visit. Children who are victims of crime, abuse or neglect can benefit from an array of services offered by the House. Services offered include Trauma Focused Therapy, parental visitations, prosecution preparation, victim services, food and clothing assistance, forensic, psychological and medical exams. Over the last 10 years, reports of child abuse have continued to rise, and the services offered continue to expand as a result.

** B2 Wednesday, September 5, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette SPORTS & OUTDOORSKiehnÂs 38-yarder gives Indians 38-35 victory By Seth Stringer 315-4421 | @SethSnwfdn firstname.lastname@example.orgFORT WALTON BEACH Â„ The rout was on.ChoctawÂs Ethan Lee collected the interception around MiltonÂs 15 yard line and strolled into the end zone untouched, the Indians lead pushed to 28-7 early in the third quarter at Joe Etheredge Stadium. Only the mistakes were still there.The bad snaps. The slips on routes and the dropped passes. The defenseÂs struggles to close out drives and limit big plays.Compounded by the loss of quarterback Brady Peters to a right ankle injury, the Indians were outscored 28-7 down the stretch as Milton forced overtime.A loss wouldÂve been disastrous. A loss couldÂve derailed the Indians' season.Tom Kiehn wouldnÂt let that happen.After Choctaw held Milton off the scoreboard to open the extra frame, the 6-foot-2 senior kicker split the uprights on a 38-yard field goal to give the Indians a 38-35 win and send his teammates into a frenzy at midfield.Dogpiles, hugs, highfives, chest bumps ... the celebration had it all. Kiehn's right foot had demanded it.ÂAs soon as I hit it, I knew it was good,ÂŽ Kiehn said. ÂIÂm just so thank-ful for my teammates for giving me the opportunity to make big plays. We've been working hard all summer and this just shows you what hard work does."For now, crisis averted. Choctaw can learn from this and move on 1-1 instead of 0-2, a mark that wouldÂve created mustwins in a district that includes Crestview and Niceville and non-district affairs like Navarre.The good news is Choctaw learned from last weekÂs loss to Tate. Unlike the 28-21 loss to the Aggies on the road, there was no sign of a slow start Friday night against Milton. Quite the opposite.The Indians jumped out to a 28-7 lead thanks to a pair of touchdowns by Peters and a score by both its defense and special teams.Peters, who departed in the third quarter with an injured right ankle, deliv-ered a 13-yard touchdown run to open the night and later followed up a Kybert McGlothin 70-yard kick-off return to paydirt with a 46-yard touchdown to Canyon Patterson to push the halftime lead to 21-7.Lee then opened the second-half scoring with a pick-six deep in Milton territory to push the lead to 28-7, a seemingly insurmountable lead considering ChoctawÂs defense hadnÂt allowed anything since a 90-yard drive to begin the night.But Milton had other thoughts, answering with 14 unanswered on a 17-yard touchdown pass from backup quarter-back Tyler Buchanan and a 48-yard touchdown run from Tobias Daniels.Isaiah Abbott, coming in for Peters, answered with a 15-yard touchdown strike to Logan Dedmon to stake the Indians to a 35-21 lead, but Buchanan struck again on 17-yard touchdown pass and Daniels later knotted the score on an 11-yard touchdown run Â… his third of the night Â… with 3:33 left to play.Kiehn had an opportu-nity to give the Indians the lead on a 42-yard field goal with a little more than a minute to play, but the snap and hold was botched and Kiehn barely got a piece of the ball.ÂIt was a little bit of trouble from our place holder and I missed it,ÂŽ Kiehn said.Milton had an opportunity to end the game as time expired, but a 42-yard try fell well short to force overtime.The win avenges last yearÂs 27-13 loss to Milton, which was coming off a 38-15 win at Washington.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 B3 THIS WEEK IN THE PLAYER TO WATCH QB Jarrett Stidham, Auburn: It goes to show how powerful the SEC truly is that a star like Stidham wouldnÂt even make the top storylines. HeÂll be counted on to move the Tigers with his arm even more this year. EAST CONF ALL TEAM W-L W-L PF PA HOME AWAY Georgia 7-1 13-2 531 246 6-0 4-1 South Carolina 5-3 9-4 315 269 5-2 2-2 Kentucky 4-4 7-6 332 367 4-3 3-2 Missouri 4-4 7-6 488 414 4-3 3-2 Florida 3-5 4-7 243 300 3-3 1-2 Vanderbilt 1-7 5-7 295 376 3-4 2-3 Tennessee 0-8 4-8 238 349 3-4 0-4 WEST CONF ALL TEAM W-L W-L PF PA HOME AWAY Auburn 7-1 10-4 474 259 7-0 3-2 Alabama 7-1 13-1 519 167 7-0 3-1 LSU 6-2 9-4 354 246 5-1 3-2 Mississippi State 4-4 9-4 416 272 5-2 3-2 Texas A&M 4-4 7-6 425 399 4-3 2-2 Ole Miss 3-5 6-6 394 415 4-3 2-3 Arkansas 1-7 4-8 345 434 2-4 1-3 BEST OF THE REST This weekendÂs other top conference games (all times Eastern)KEYS FOR WASHINGTON Establish the run. The Huskies should be strong in the passing game with Jake Browning, but running on Auburn is a different matter. The Tigers have one of the best defensive lines in the country, and senior running back Myles Gaskin needs to be able to help move the chains. Create turnovers. WashingtonÂs defense intercepted 15 passes and recovered nine fumbles last season Â… good numbers, but not outstanding. Getting an extra possession or two by way of turnover could help tip the balance for a Washington offense that rarely coughs up turnovers on its own. KEYS FOR AUBURN Protect Jarrett Stidham. Auburn has its own NFL-prospect quarterback, but he spent more time on the ground in last yearÂs opener against Clemson than he did throwing passes. With only one starter returning on the offensive line, Auburn will face a big test early against WashingtonÂs defensive front. Make big plays. Gus MalzahnÂs offense isnÂt engineered to grind out long drives so much as it is to wear down opposing defenses with fast tempo. That creates the opportunity for breakaway runs or long catch-and-run pass plays that can make the difference in a showdown of heavyweights. PREDICTION Washington 24, Auburn 20. The Tigers are familiar with Mercedes-Benz Stadium, ending last season with losses there in the SEC Championship Game and the Peach Bowl. While Auburn is more proximate, that didnÂt prove to be a big factor in those games. Both teams have good quarterbacks and strong defenses, but WashingtonÂs offensive line should make the difference in the most high-profile opener in the nation. Expect it to be close regardless of the outcome.GAME OF THE WEEK NO. 6 WASHINGTON VS.

BEWARE OF DOGSTIGERS FACE TOUGH TEST IN OPENER VS. WASHINGTON Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham throws against Georgia during the Â“ rst half of the SEC title game Dec. 2, 2017, in Atlanta. [JOHN BAZEMORE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Kantele FrankoThe Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Â„ What got Urban Meyer in hot water? The suspended Ohio State football coach puts it this way: ÂMy fault was in not taking action sooner against a troubled employee about his work-related issues.ÂŽThat now-fired assistant coach had been accused of past spousal violence as well as embarrassing sexual conduct, drug abuse and financial irresponsibility. Outside inves-tigators found some of that affected his work life. MeyerÂs comments about handling that and the ensuing debate about his punishment point to a bigger question in col-lege athletics: To what extent are coaches responsible for policing their staffÂs off-field behavior?Here was Meyer Â„ a coach attentive enough to have staff remind players in advance about drunken-driving check-points around Columbus in July Â„ apologizing for not doing more about an assistant who had demonstrated troubling behavior for years, according to outside investigators. ÂI should have been more demanding of him in the same way I am of my players, other staff members, and myself,ÂŽ Meyer, who is suspended for three games but is allowed to resume coaching practices this week, said as he apologized on Aug. 22. His mea culpa comes just months after the Knight Com-mission on Intercollegiate Athletics recommended that the NCAA create minimum professional standards to ensure coaches are prepared for their leadership roles.Mastering Xs and Os is dif-ferent than navigating sensitive personnel matters. To address that, the commission envisions coaches in all sports getting the same training that department heads and other supervisors receive about responding to staff misconduct and other human resources issues, said Amy Perko, the CEO of the commission, which advocates changes to support Âthe educational mission of college sports.ÂŽ Ohio State saga points to haziness of policing sta See STAFF B5
** B4 Wednesday, September 5, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press GazetteReader question: In a recent column titled ÂTen flashpoints in real estate contractsÂŽ it stated Âagency is not the issue in real estate. The real question is competency and honesty.ÂŽ There are several paragraphs about agency in real estate contracts and many agency advocates. My question is not meant to challenge the report, only to better understand it. Elucidate, please. MontyÂs answer: Agency is a legal theory incorporated in law that applies to real estate, insurance, attorneys, and many businesses. The supposition is that an agent must act in the clientÂs best interest, ahead of their interests. In real estate, while each state works independently to elevate the business climate, many consumers experience financial woes. The transaction environment on the street level The real estate transaction is complicated and emotional:Â€ There are multiple organizations tasked with separate duties throughout the process. Â€ Many conversations are not in writing. Â€ Contracts and addendums are extensive. Â€ Numerous trigger points in the contracts can create Â“ nancial distress. Â€ Consumers can be overconÂ“ dent, lack knowledge or misplace trust, which begs risk. Â€ Clients, customers, and agents do not operate on a universal ethical standard. Â€ Decisions are driven by Â“ nances, timing, or convenience, rather than by the golden rule. Â€ Clients, customers, and agents do not absorb data and interpret that data uniformly. Â€ Some mistakes are invisible. Undervaluing or overvaluing a home may never be detected. Â€ Construction and title defects can go undetected for years. The real estate transaction process evokes misunderstandings. Most agency related errors are difficult to bring to hearings and enforcement. Often, disputes are a ÂHe said/She saidÂŽ event. There are no referees in real estate transactions. While a noble idea, promoting agency law as a protection for consumers creates a false sense of security. To be a bit facetious, one day in the future, all participants may be wearing body cameras. Contact Richard Montgomery at DearMonty.com. MOVINGENSURE SAFETYFor parents of young children, the process of moving to a new home calls for a plan to ensure potential safety hazards are remediated. Â€ Evaluate potential safety hazards before the move even begins, buying important tools and xtures so you can make adjustments early rather than retro tting.

Â„ Brandpoint DEAR MONTYExplaining real estate agency law R i c h a r d M o n t g o m e r y Richard MontgomeryBy Betty Montgomery More Content NowAbelia is a plant I have known since I was a child. I remember the bushes we had because they seemed to often have either butterflies or bees present. It was a good evergreen plant that performed well in the garden, blooming off and on from summer to frost. Except for the occasional pruning, it was considered a low-maintenance plant. Until recently, I rarely gave this plant much thought. This hardy shrub has had some ÂmodernizationÂŽ in recent years with new varieties being introduced. I remember purchasing ÂKaleidoscopeÂŽ some years ago and being pleased that it did not grow as tall as the older variety that I knew from childhood. I did not have to do major pruning to keep it at the size I desired. It was also different from the old-timey ones because of the colorful foliage; brightened up a spot in the garden that looked dark and dreary. The leafÂs bright yellow edges against the green centers in the spring changed like a chameleon in the fall, becoming orange and red. Like the older version, the bell-shaped flowers decorate the plant throughout the summer. Then others came along. ÂRose CreekÂŽ was developed by Michael Dirr, a horticulturist and a professor of horticulture at the University of Georgia. It was selected for its low mounding growth habit, which typically matures to around 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide. Overnight this plant became an excellent choice for foundation planting since it is evergreen in zones 7 to 9 and semi-evergreen in zone 6. The leaves turn an interesting shade of soft purplegreen in winter. It too has tubular, fragrant, white flowers that start blooming in late spring and continue sporadically throughout the summer to until fall. In 2006, ÂRadianceÂŽ was discovered as a sport of ÂKaleidoscope.ÂŽ It stands out from others because of the unique foliage, abundance of flowers and its vigor. During the growing season, it has lovely silvery-green and creamy white variegated foliage that is held up on bright red stems. Then, in late summer, this plant is covered with small, trumpet shaped flowers that can be quite fragrant. It is not a tall grower, topping out around 3 feet. I have never grown this one myself, but have seen it in different locations around our area. ÂConfettiÂŽ is one I have read about but never seen. It is reported to be quite cold hardy, its most important asset since it can be grown in zones 5 and 6 as well as warmer areas. This compact, strong grower sports shades of hot pink, creamy white and green foliage. I recently ran into Dirr and asked him about abelias. Dirr said, ÂNursery growers, retailers, and gardeners have numerous superior choices. Variegated foliage is the current rage and bronze, ruby, red, orange, cream, yellow, and green permutations are available. Breeders and selectors have elevated this antiquarian garden species to modern day respectability and interest.ÂŽ Dirr has done a great deal of work with abelias in the past and has introduced a number of them to growers over the years. He also has observed the size of them and knows that most stay smaller, but when he was visiting the Keith Arboretum in Chapel Hill, N.C., he saw a 70-year-old abelia that was 18 feet tall. Dirr said, ÂWithout question, plants do not read books when it comes to size.ÂŽ He realized people wanted different forms of abelia and he certainly went to work developing some with different growth habits. There are many other variations of abelia that have been developed, and there will be more coming into the trade soon. I am hoping to find one that has red color with a bronze cast. Abelias are easy to grow and maintain. If you want to prune them, the best time is to prune in late winter. If you happen to prune in the very early spring, you might still be fine Â„ unless new growth has started to come out. Betty Montgomery is a master gardener and author.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 B5Former Special Ops School dean with cancer is appealing his dismissal over marijuana derivative By Jim Thompson315-4445 | @Jimtnwfdn firstname.lastname@example.orgHURLBURT FIELD Â„ The former academic dean at the Air Force Special Operations School is appealing his recent dismissal for using prescribed cannabidiol, a non-pyschoactive marijuana derivative, to the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board.Henry Cobbs, a 22-year Air Force veteran who retired in 1982 and who holds a doctoral degree in educational technology, has been at the Special Operations School since 2009. Two years ago he was diagnosed with intraductal carcinoma of the prostate, a rare form of prostate cancer, and opted for wide-ranging treatment.ÂI availed myself of every-thing I could find,ÂŽ Cobbs said.One of the things he found through a Montgomery, Ala-bama, physician was CBD oil, another name for cannabidiol. After being prescribed the oil in October 2017, Cobbs applied the dosage on his tongue. But after reading that using the oil in an elec-tronic cigarette and inhaling the vapor delivered the drug in a higher concentration, he opted for that method.Cobbs subsequently told a couple of co-workersÂ„ one diagnosed with prostate cancer, and another with indications of the disease Â„ about using CBD oil. And according to a termination letter from Special Opera-tions School commander Lt. Col. Michael Lowe, Cobbs was also seen ÂvapingÂŽ the medication.CobbsÂ termination became effective the afternoon Aug. 15, but he retired on the morning of that day, a move designed to preserve his retirement benefits. Retirement doesnÂt jeopardize his appeal, Cobbs said.At issue in CobbsÂ termina-tion is a 1986 executive order by President Ronald Reagan aimed to make federal work-places drug-free. The order defines Âillegal drugsÂŽ to include federal Schedule I drugs, which include CBD oil. But the order also notes Âthe term Âillegal drugsÂ does not mean the use of a controlled substance pursuant to a valid prescription or other uses authorized by law.ÂŽCobbs has contacted with the office of U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz regarding his appeal.Retired Air Force Capt. Nate Nelson, director of mili-tary affairs in GaetzÂs office, said Thursday that federal law, which governs how the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) must handle CobbsÂ situation, lists CBD oil as a Schedule I drug, with the exception of a par-ticular type used for epilepsy.Nelson said GaetzÂs office is working with Cobbs in an advisory capacity, but added that Âthe military has to uphold the federal stance.ÂŽÂWe completely understand AFSOCÂs stance,ÂŽ Nelson said.Nelson pointed out that, while they might not neces-sarily help Cobbs, a couple of pieces of legislation now in Congress could affect simi-lar cases.The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act would, among other things, exclude CBD oil from the definition of marijuana. Gaetz is a co-spon-sor of the bill.Also, Nelson said, House Resolution 6043, which would change how the Controlled Substances Act is applied to marijuana, has been introduced with Gaetz as a co-sponsor.CobbsÂ most recent examination showed his cancer had been contained. But as his appeal proceeds, Cobbs says heÂs left with one question.ÂYouÂre going to make me choose between a job and cancer?ÂŽ he asked.Hurlburt cannabidiol caseHenry Cobbs, former academic dean at the Special Operations School at Hurlburt Field, was dismissed recently in connection with his use of prescribed cannabinol, a nonpsychoactive derivative of marijuana. Cobbs is appealing his dismissal to the Merit Systems Protection Board. [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] ÂIn many cases, coaches have really never received any type of training on some of the more administrative aspects of their job,ÂŽ Perko said. Yet as highly paid standardbearers in big-time college sports, such coaches are often publicly viewed as responsible for their programs and the people in them, sometimes even beyond the scope of whatÂs outlined in university policies and NCAA rules. The coaching responsibilities highlighted by the Ohio State saga are about responding when inappropri-ate behavior comes to light, not about proactively monitoring employeesÂ private lives, said Stephen Ross, director of the Penn State Institute for Sports Law, Policy and Research, who emphasized that he doesnÂt speak for his university.ÂSeeing what happened to Urban Meyer, I do not think that (Alabama coach) Nick Saban, right now as heÂs getting ready for a football game, is required to bring his coaches into his office on a one-on-one situation and inquire as to their domestic life,ÂŽ Ross said. But sports leaders at other universities may learn something from the Ohio State situation about how to handle these kinds of issues, said Bob Vecchione, executive director of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athlet-ics, an educational body. ÂMaybe they have to peel the onion back a little further, because they had things in place, and maybe now they just need to take it to a new level,ÂŽ Vecchione said. The two-week outside investigation conducted for Ohio State concluded that Meyer and athletic director Gene Smith mistakenly believed they didnÂt need to do more about domestic abuse allegations against assistant coach Zach Smith back in 2015 unless law enforcement took action against him. Zach Smith wasnÂt charged in the 2015 matter, denied being aggressive with his ex-wife and wasnÂt fired until late July, after his ex-wife asked a judge for a protective order. Meyer has emphasized that he doesnÂt condone domestic vio-lence, didnÂt believe Zach Smith abused his wife, tried to help the struggling couple, and reported what he thought was required to the university. But MeyerÂs defensiveness also has drawn him more criticism, with some observers arguing he shouldÂve publicly apologized to SmithÂs wife sooner and challenging his insistence that he didnÂt lie to reporters this summer about his knowledge of the 2015 incident. Meyer said his decisions to repeatedly give his assistant the benefit of the doubt and not press for more information about allegations against him were probably influenced by loyalty to Zach SmithÂs grand-father, former Ohio State coach and Meyer mentor Earle Bruce. Ann Skeet, the senior direc-tor of leadership ethics at Santa Clara UniversityÂs Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, argues that Meyer especially had an obligation to get more facts about the domestic abuse allegations because relationship violence has been a recurring issue in football and the male-dominated sport has Âa built-in blind spot organizationally in terms of what the lived experience of women who are interacting with them might be.ÂŽ STAFFFrom Page B3
