ÂWe have begun to research the issue to find resources of information on the subject matter,ÂŽ Jorgenson said in his council agenda statement. Â[We] identified an organization to assist the com-munity in combating this social problem.ÂŽJorgenson presented the council with information on the program Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide. According to the programÂs website at www.sptsusa.org, two people who lost friends to suicide formed SPTSin 2005. The website says they formed this group in part because they were surprised to learn suicide was the third leading cause of death to youth in America at the time.Currently, according to SPTS, suicide is the second leading cause of death between the ages of 10 and 24.Council referred the issue to the Leadership, Education, Activities, Programs (LEAP) Committee, headed by Coun-cilwoman Mary Ellen Johnson for further development.City to spread teen suicide prevention awareness Contact the City ManagerÂs OfÂ“ ce at 983-5411 to learn more about the Milton City CouncilÂs Feb. 23 meeting.

It is the Learn-ing Academy of Santa Rosa. The school, under principal Kara Whitney-Lay, accepts students in 6th through 12th grade. ÂThey come here to learn,ÂŽ Whitney-Lay said.Half the students attend by choice due to falling behind academically, being aca-demically delayed, or having trouble passing standardized tests. Referred students attend for academic reasons and disciplinary issues.Most of the students are impoverished in some form, according to Whitney-Lay. A person can be poor financially as well as poor, for example, in the way of manners. She said many of her students did not know their behavior was inappropriate. They have not been taught. The school focuses on get-ting these students a plan for their lives to make them feel they have some control. The Learning Academy does this through education, discipline, direction and tough love, according to Whitney-Lay.ÂIf they take two creditrecovery courses and donÂt make it, the Learning Academy can help them,ÂŽ Whitney-Lay said. The school labs help teach to the individual student and can teach to specifics areas of concern, she said. The school has strict rules.ÂWe donÂt do phones, or tablets,ÂŽ Whitney-Lay said. ÂSocial media is of the devil. They check all that stuff in, in the mornings, so there is no drama throughout they day.ÂŽThe Learning Academy, an alternative for struggling studentsPrincipal Kara Whitney-Lay stands in front of classrooms built last year at the Learning Academy in Milton.

Bad things have been alleged against him and many, many glorious things have been said about him. The Judiciary committee, the Senate and all of Congress are now faced with the decision of what to do with Kavanuagh and that decision is to go forward. The sexual assault alleged against Kavanaugh is a heinous accusation that no one should ever take lightly. The lack of evidence and support that the accuser has from witnesses and other facts that she cannot present or remember is disconcerting. Not only is it disconcerting there is no enough evidence against Kavanaugh to make a legal case. KavanaughÂs denial and his life of service and commending testimonies from so many who have worked with him throughout the years have weighed heavily in his favor. LetÂs face it, almost all of the Democrats will vote against him and the Republicans will vote for him. Amazingly, with all of the rhetoric, testimonies and mud hurled from both sides of this debate it will come down to a decision to be made. Many decisions will simply be made in favor of the PresidentÂs recommendation and decisions will be made against the PresidentÂs recommendation. It depends on whether you are a Democrat or Republican. I like Kavanaugh. I would vote for him. He has a lifelong outstanding record of service. I feel very sorry for his accuser. I hope that she can find emotional healing. She seems to have lived a very productive life filled with educational and career attainments. It comes down to making a decision. My decision for Kavanaugh is based on substantiated facts. ItÂs a lousy ugly process that seems now to be a part of every national debate. Time and again we are faced with Âhe said, she said,ÂŽ testimony that is factored into national elections and Supreme Court appointments. It will never go away and will be a part of most of our important elections and other national appointments from here on out it seems. Rapists, abusers, assaulters should not never be installed in places of such high service as the Supreme Court or even the Presidency. With that being said, we must not ever allow a last minute below the belt punch, which is what some of these accusations seem to be. They are like a last minute hail Mary thrown in hopes that someone somewhere will catch it and run with it to some kind of miraculous victory that otherwise would be impossible. Joseph was a young man in the Bible who lived an exemplary life. He was accused of rape by PotipharÂs wife simply because he refused her advances to sleep with her. She was a scorned woman and was happy for Joseph to spend two years in prison because he refused her sexual advances. Joseph was falsely accused and treated very badly. Eventually he was freed from prison and went on to do great things for the nation of Egypt and his fellow countrymen. KavanaughÂs not going to jail but he has been through an emotional nightmare. He will go forward to serve our country in a great way. Glenn Mollette is an American syndicated columnist and author.Kavanaugh Â„ Decision Time Â„ Emotional Nightmare Glenn MolletteLast week, the Bill Cosby we all thought we knew was put in prison by the Bill Cosby none us of knew existed. It has been a jarring thing to learn AmericaÂs Dad was actually a predator who got off on drugging women to render them helpless. All the achievements, all the influence, all the history and philanthropy, burned to the ground. As Cosby was carted away, his publicist Andrew Wyatt declared: "They persecuted Jesus. Look what happened. Not saying Mr. Cosby is Jesus, but we know what this country has done to black men for centuries. So Mr. Cosby is doing fine. HeÂs holding up well, and everybody who wants to say anything negative Â„ youÂre a joke as well." Sorry, you donÂt get to play the Jesus card. Jesus never harmed a living being. As someone noted, Jesus didnÂt "roofie" the wine he created from water. On one point, Wyatt is correct: Countless black men falsely have been accused of rape Â„ and worse Â„ for centuries. In Montgomery, Ala., thereÂs a new national monument bearing the names of some of the nearly 5,000 black Americans who were lynched between the 1800s and 1968. Wrong place, wrong time We all know there have been too many instances to count in which black men have been accused falsely. When Susan Smith decided to drown her two young sons in 1995, she tried to pin their murders on a mythical black man. For all of her ignorance, even Smith understood that being a black man in America means people are more than willing to believe he did it. But you know who actually was innocent like Jesus? Emmett Till, a 14-year-old boy who was guilty of nothing more than being a black person in the wrong place at the wrong time. So too were James Byrd Jr., Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and Freddie Gray. So was Medgar Evers. Trayvon MartinÂs only crime was wearing a hoodie and being a smart-aleck. How does that warrant a bullet? Guess who else was innocent? Botham Jean, who couldnÂt even be black in his own home, where he was killed Sept. 6 by a Dallas police officer who says she mistook his apartment for hers. Wolf pack In 1989, America bought into media descriptions of the Central Park Five as a "wolf pack" that raped and nearly killed a white woman jogger. Among those howling for their execution was the current president of the United States, who took out a full-page ad in the New York Times calling for their deaths. He refuses to admit his mistake. Wyatt and Cosby donÂt get to play the race card, however, not after Cosby admitted to drugging women for sex, including the black woman on whom his criminal trial was centered. Not when a black man is the one who outed his heinous behavior. Wyatt, who likely has been suspected and feared merely because heÂs black, needs to save his sympathy for CosbyÂs daughters, black women whose lives have been ruined. He should reserve it for all the law-abiding black men and boys who canÂt even drive, walk down a public street or enter an elevator without someone feeling threatened. No doubt, there are people who are thrilled by CosbyÂs demise for reasons other than his crime. But a better bet is that most Americans of all stripes were shocked, stunned and horrified that someone they long admired, who embodied family values and who achieved the American dream, has turned out to be nothing more than a womanÂs nightmare.

Goshay On Kavanaugh and corrections Dear editor, After watching 9 hours of two peopleÂs testimonies, the result was the same answers to the same questions regarding all four witnesses including one Dr. Ford describes as her close girlfriend. What was also brought out in the hearing regarding the FBI was the agency only gathers the facts to turn over to those who use them to make any conclusion or determination and ultimately the decision, which in this case is the Senate judicial committee regarding Supreme Court nominees. Yet didnÂt the FBI gather the facts that FBI director James Comey laid out, made a conclusion or determination, and ultimately the decision regarding Hillary ClintonÂs emails and personal internet servers which in that case was the Department of JusticeÂs responsibility and that of a grand jury regarding an indictment on those FBI gathered facts. Just some more improper procedures within the democrat party. Now to address Presley HarperÂs concern on my inaccuracy of facts. Yes, Presley, I stand corrected and it should have read ÂBill Clinton was impeached by Congress for lying under oathÂŽ but my real focus wasnÂt on that statement and doesnÂt change the message. It is also kind of a given that if you lie in that situation you are doing so to obstruct justice in your favor. But the article you pulled that from was not about Bill Clinton but actually about Congressional and DOJ double standards and the corruption of government. The do as I say not as I do mentality within the democrat party and IÂm sure republicans work in there somewhere with that slush fund. I would also like to say that with everything I write if that is the only mistake you found it either says I am very honest with what I write or you are very bad with finding flaws within my numerous writings! So I am very happy you pointed that out to the readers! Thank you.STEVEN KING Milton
** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, October 3, 2018 A5By Zoe LinafeltGULF BREEZE Â„ Danielle Horne has her hands full but doesnÂt let anything slow her down. She is a mainte-nance associate at Walmart Neighborhood Market, a wife, and a mother to a 1-year-old boy.About 30 hours a week, Horne keeps the store spotless and keeps customers happy. Shecleans the restrooms, fills paper towel dispensers, wipes down the glass doors in the frozen food aisles, stocks shelves, and makes sure the carts are ready for cus-tomers to use. She is known for being ready and willing to help with anything and is sometimes asked to be a greeter or monitor store departments as needed. She often arrives early to work and is willing to stay late if they need help. Aside from being very effective and successful at her job, Horne is devoted to her family and enjoys spending time with her husband and son.Horne receives services from the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, and APD is highlighting the workplace achievements of people with disabilities and the employers that hire them.When asked why she likes having a job, Horne answers, "Because the money and it gives me somebody to talk to and have friends outside of the house." She also enjoys being able to help customers have a good shopping expe-rience.

Three and a half years ago, Horne told Walker that she wanted to write her own resume and job application for Walmart. Since starting her job there, she has received the Employee of the Month Award twice (August 2015 and September 2016), earned raises, and achieved her goal of living independently.

** A6 Wednesday, October 3, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette Press Gazette contributorTALLAHASSEE Â„ The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and To Inform Families First (TIFF) are recognizing October as ECI Awareness Month and urge residents to register or update their emergency contact information.ECI is a state-supported, secure system that allows Floridians, with a valid driver license or ID card, to designate up to two emergency contacts. The system may only be accessed by law enforcement and only in the event of an emergency. ÂRegistering emergency contact information is the first step to providing peace of mind for loved ones,ÂŽ said DHSMV Executive Director, Terry L. Rhodes. ÂFloridians should keep their infor-mation updated in the ECI system, so law enforcement can notify contacts immediately.ÂŽThe ECI program was first established in Florida in 2006 after Christine Olson tragically lost her daughter Tiffiany in a traffic crash. It was several hours after TiffianyÂs death before authorities were able to contact Christine. Compelled to save others from the same misfortune, Christine worked with Senator Bill Galvano to create a vol-untary program allowing people to submit their emergency contact information as part of their secure driver license or ID card record.ÂThrough unimagi-nable tragedy, Christine Olson selflessly worked to create a program that would benefit all Florid-ians,ÂŽ said Senator Bill Galvano. ÂI am honored to have helped create the ECI program and proud of the service it has pro-vided families over the past 12 years.ÂŽOn Oct. 2, 2006, Christine Olson became the first person to register ECI in Florida, creating the first ever ECI program in the nation. Due to its success in Florida, the ECI program has been replicated in six other U.S. states. As of September 2018, more than 14 million Floridians have registered their informa-tion in the ECI system.ÂTaking two minutes to register or update your ECI can save you hours of worry, fear and not knowing,ÂŽ said To Inform Families First President, Christine Olson. ÂDo it today your family is counting on you.ÂŽParents should be aware that children as young as five years old are eligible for a Florida ID card and can be reg-istered in the secure ECI system. Teens are encouraged to register their ECI as they apply for their driver license or ID card and keep the information updated.October is Emergency Contact Information Awareness Month The school does not tolerate bullying. Much of the bullying happens through those electronic platforms, according to Whitney-Lay. ÂYou get up, you dress up, you look up, you show up,ÂŽ Whitney-Lay says she tells her students.The school seeks to instill pride in students for what they are doing at the school, according to Whitney-Lay. She wants students to feel accom-plishment in graduating. Her first year,three stu-dents graduated. Last year, 26 did.Whitney-Lay is strict and manages with discipline, but describes herself as a Grinch that turns into Santa Clause at Christmas.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, October 3, 2018 A7 By Press Gazette contributorTALLAHASSEE Â„ The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is announcing a Septic Upgrade Incen-tive Program to improve water quality and protect FloridaÂs outstanding springs. The incentive program encourages homeowners to enhance conventional septic sys-tems by adding advanced features to reduce nitro-gen pollution.This Septic Upgrade Incentive Program is designed to offset home-owner costs by providing certified installers and licensed plumbers with up to $10,000 after the installation of enhanced nitrogen-reducing features to existing septic systems located in targeted areas within eligible counties. This incentive effectively reduces the costs to the homeowner for the septic system upgrades. Desig-nated areas are identified and delineated by DEP as Priority Focus Areas in Citrus, Hernando, Leon, Marion, Orange, Pasco, Seminole, Volusia and Wakulla counties. View the Priority Focus Area map to see if a home location is in an eligible area.ÂWe encourage homeowners in these Pri-ority Focus Areas to take advantage of this new Septic Upgrade Incen-tive Program,ÂŽ said Trina Vielhauer, director of DEPÂs Division of Water Restoration Assistance. ÂEvery homeowner who does their part to upgrade a septic system brings us one step closer to our goal of significantly lowering nutrients in FloridaÂs springs.ÂŽEligible enhancements include retrofitting septic tanks with advanced pre-treatment, recirculating aerobic treatment units, or replacing traditional septic tanks with upgraded nutrient-reducing technology. Visit the Florida Depart-ment of HealthÂs webpage for more information about onsite treatment and disposal systems.The incentives are available for payment directly to septic system installers and licensed plumbers retained by homeowners to update existing systems, and must be pre-approved by the department prior to the commencement of work.Septic system installers and licensed plumbers can find complete instructions regarding how to participate, as well as the application for reimbursement by visit-ing the Septic Upgrade Incentive Program web-page or calling toll-free 1-866-601-6910.Since 2011, Governor Rick Scott has invested more than $450 million in FloridaÂs springs Â… the highest amount of fund-ing for springs under any Governor in Florida his-tory. In addition, DEP has submitted a plan to the Florida Legislature to invest $50 million in springs restoration from this yearÂs budget. When leveraged with funding from local partners, this plan proposes a total investment of nearly $86 million during the 2018-2019 fiscal year.

ÂWe hope that this brand transformation will bring in new mentors from all walks of life.ÂŽFrom Pensacola to Panama City, there are over 100 children waiting to be matched with a mentor. At any given time, about 70 percent of the children waiting are boys. A major goal of the new brand is to recruit male volunteers.After months of research, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America found that the brand was not effectively connecting with younger, prospective mentors or conveying the urgency of this agencyÂs mission. The organization is intentionally pivot-ing from messages of the importance of mentoring, to messages of the urgent need for the adults in the community to step up to defend the potential of every child.The brand repositioning and new look are just the beginning. In the coming year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida will transition to a new, modern, nationwide technology system, participate in new train-ing, refocus the brand, and celebrate 30 years of serving children in Northwest Florida.To learn more about the new brand positioning, the logo, messaging, or how to get involved, visit bbbs.org/bigpotential.Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida has been the areaÂs leader in one-to-one mentoring for 29 years by serving children ages 6 to 18. Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Last year, Big Brothers Big Sis-ters of Northwest Florida served 616 children in Northwest Florida.Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida seeks more volunteers By Press Gazette contributorTALLAHASSEE Â„ Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis released the following statement on the day Senate Bill 376, mental health benefits for first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), goes into effect.ÂToday we tell all first responders that they are not alone, that they will not have to deal with the horrific images they see every day on their own. After hearing from first responders throughout Florida and learning incredibly alarm-ing statistics, I made it my mission to secure mental health benefits for first responders. The goal is to help the men and women who are the heroes in our community tackle their challenges so that we shrink these numbers.ÂThank you to Sen. Lauren Book, Rep.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, October 3, 2018 B5 SENIOR HEALTHFALLING IS BIG ISSUEOne in four adults age 65 and older falls each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These falls can cause injuries that not only aect their health, but also their overall quality of life. Falls also are the most common cause of brain injury. Every 11 seconds an older adult is seen in an emergency room for a fall-related injury, reports the National Council On Aging. DEFICIENCYGET YOUR IODINEIodine is an essential element, enabling the function of thyroid glands to produce hormones for proper metabolism. When children in the womb donÂt get enough iodine from their mother, fetal brain development is impaired. During pregnancy, iodine deciency can cause a child to develop learning and intellectual disabilities as well as developmental problems. Iodine deciency was a problem in the U.S. until salt producers started adding iodine to table salt more than a century ago. Today, about 70 percent of the table salt sold in the U.S. is iodized. OPIOIDSNEW MED RULESThe American Society of Anesthesiologists oers these reasons your physician may limit or avoid prescribing opioids: Other options: There are more eective methods for treating pain in a specic site. Side eects and risks: Addiction and dependence are major worries. And there are other side eects, too. HEALTHTODAYÂS WORKOUT1 move will work chest, shoulders, back By JoNel Aleccia Kaiser Health News O f all the indignities that come with aging, excessive earwax may be the most insidious. DonÂt laugh. That greasy, often gross, buildup occurs more often in older ears than those of the young, experts say. And when it goes unrecognized, it can pose serious problems, especially for the 2.2 million people who live in U.S. nursing homes and assisted living centers. ÂThe excessive amount [of earwax] can cause hearing loss or ringing in your ears. Some people experience vertigo, which increases the risk of falling,ÂŽ said Jackie Clark, a boardcertified audiologist who is president of the American Academy of Audiology. ÂRight now, we see some correlation between hearing loss and cognitive decline.ÂŽ Earwax Â„ which is not really wax at all, but a substance called cerumen that binds with dirt, dust and debris Â„ is normally produced by the body as a way to clean and protect the ears. In most people, the self-cleaning process works fine. But in others Â„ including about 10 percent of young children, 20 percent of adults and more than 30 percent of elderly and developmentally disabled people Â„ the wax collects to the point where it can completely block the ear canal. Up to two-thirds of people in nursing homes may suffer from that condition, known as impaction, according to 2017 guidelines for removal of impacted earwax issued by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation. In 2016, federal Medicare recipients logged nearly 1.7 million earwax removal services at a cost of more than $51 million, according to payment records analyzed by Kaiser Health News. ÂIn elderly patients, itÂs fairly common,ÂŽ said Dr. Seth Schwartz, a Seattle otolaryngologist who led the most recent update of the guidelines. ÂIt seems like such a basic thing, but itÂs one of the most common reasons people present for hearing-related problems.ÂŽ ItÂs so bad that Janie York, of Omaha, Nebraska, started Hear Now mobile hearing solutions, one of a growing number of businesses devoted to cleaning hearing aids and checking the ears of elderly people living in residential care settings. ÂItÂs epidemic,ÂŽ said York, whose clients now include 10 local centers. ÂAbout 3 in 5 people I see have some degree of impaction and most are completely impacted.ÂŽ Julie Brown, assistant director of nursing in the memory support unit at SilverRidge Assisted Living in Gretna, Nebraska, said impacted earwax can be a particular problem for patients with dementia. It exacerbates hearing loss, which can impede communication and worsen aggression and other difficult behaviors. ÂAs soon as the earwax is cleared up, even their behavior has calmed down,ÂŽ Brown said. Excessive earwax sends about 12 million people to see health workers every year, including about 8 million who require wax removal, according to the otolaryngology association. Hearing-aid users should have regular ear checks every three to six months, the guidelines suggest. People with dementia should also have earwax removed regularly.By Marlo Alleva More Content NowOur move today is an alternating pec deck. This move will work our chest, shoulders and upper back. You will need a set of light to medium weights for this exercise. This move can be executed either standing up or sitting down. Begin by grasping your hand weights in each hand, rolling your shoulders back and down and lifting your chest. Lifting each arm up to either side of your head, extend the arms out to each side of your body, with your elbows bent at shoulder level. Keeping both palms facing forward, you are ready to move. Start by guiding one arm at a time around to the front of your body. Keep the weights upward, and direct with your elbow bent and at a 90-degree angle. Once you reach your fullest contraction on the front side of your body, redirect your arm back to starting position on the outside of your body. Continue with the opposite arm in the same motion. Keep your movements somewhat slow and methodic, as the positioning can be a bit awkward, causing fatigue quickly. Shoot for eight to 10 repetitions, for at least three sets. Give yourself a small break between each set. Also, if your hand weights feel heavier, reduce the amount of weight or use no weight at all. You will still get the benefits of the move, just without the extra resistance. If you need more resistance, increase your weight. This move targets a few areas, so it is great to add into any upper body routine. And keep in mind every muscle is important all year round. Marlo Alleva demonstrates an alternating pec deck. [PIERRE DUCHARME/THE LEDGER] WHEN AND HOW SHOULD THE EARS BE CLEANED? Ears should be cleaned when enough earwax accumulates to cause one or more of the following symptoms: Earache, fullness in the ear, or a sensation the ear is plugged Partial hearing loss, which may be progressive Tinnitus, ringing, or noises in the ear Itching, odor, or discharge Coughing To clean the ears, wash the external ear with a cloth, but do not insert anything into the ear canal. Most cases of ear wax blockage respond to home treatments such as placing a few drops of mineral oil, baby oil, glycerin, or commercial drops in the ear. Detergent drops such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide (available in most pharmacies) may also aid in the removal of wax. Irrigation or ear syringing is commonly used for cleaning and can be performed by a physician or at home using a commercially available irrigation kit. Ear syringing is most effective when water, saline, or wax dissolving drops are put in the ear canal 15 to 30 minutes before treatment.
