The Pensacola-based utility said an average residential customer will save about $14 a month in 2018. Gulf Power customers to see lower billsBy Jim Saunders The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ In one case, a ladder flew off a state truck, leading to a fatal acci-dent. In another, an infant died after a paperwork error at a county health clinic. In another, a foster child sexu-ally assaulted another boy.Gov. Rick Scott signed eight bills last week that will lead to paying millions of dollars to resolve cases in which state or local government agencies played a role in people dying or getting injured.The bills, known as "claim" bills, passed during the legislative session that ended March 11 and stem from sov-ereign-immunity laws that cap the amounts of money government agencies can be forced to pay in legal cases. Claim bills typically direct agencies to pay amounts that exceed the caps Â„ sometimes long after the deaths or injuries occur.Agencies to pay millions for deaths, injuriesStaff ReportBONIFAY Â„ The commu-nity celebrated on Friday the life of the late Bonifay Fire Department Chief Michael Shay McCormick.

** A2 Wednesday, March 28, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserÂItÂs exciting,ÂŽ said Art Graham, chairman of the Florida Public Service Commission, which approved the plan Monday. ÂItÂs definitely exciting to see the imme-diate impact of this kind of stuff.ÂŽGulf had entered a rate settlement last year at the Public Service Commission that included provisions about passing through tax savings to customers. But that agreement was nego-tiated before Congress and Trump approved the tax-cut package.The plan approved Monday came after nego-tiations involving Gulf, the state Office of Public Counsel, the Florida Industrial Power Users Group and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. The Office of Public Coun-sel represents consumers in utility issues, while the Florida Industrial Power Users Group represents large business users of electricity.ÂWe think itÂs a fair deal, and we think itÂs in the public interest,ÂŽ said Jon Moyle, an attorney for the group commonly known as FIPUG.While customers will quickly see reductions from the plan, Gulf said tax savings of more than $30 million are expected to continue in 2019. Part of the savings in 2018 stem from the utility being able to pay the lower 21 percent rate on taxes that had been deferred in past years.Like Gulf, Florida Power & Light, Duke Energy Florida and Tampa Electric Co. in recent months filed plans with the Public Service Commission to pass along tax savings to customers.

HCSBFrom Page A1Here are brief descriptions of the cases, with details from the bills and legislative staff analyses:Â€ The parents of 5-month-old Nicholas Pat-node took him to a Martin County Health Department clinic in 1998 because of a fever. A blood test showed a condition that needed immediate treatment with antibiotics. The results of the blood test were printed but not picked up from the clinicÂs printer. The childÂs condition deteriorated, and he was taken to a hospital where he was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. He subsequently died. The parents won a lawsuit but could only receive $200,000 without a claim bill. The bill (HB 6501) signed last week by Scott directs the Department of Health to pay $2.4 million.Â€ Nine weeks pregnant, Vonshelle Brothers went to the Brevard County Health Department in 2010 for an initial pre-natal checkup. Lab tests indicated Brothers had herpes simplex virus, but the health department did not report the results to her. After giving birth later that year, Brothers went to a hospital because her daugh-ter, Iyonna Hughey, had a fever, was weak and was not eating. Tests showed that the baby had herpes simplex virus, which caused developmental delays and the need for speech and physical therapy. Brothers reached a legal settlement but was only able to receive $200,000 without a claim bill. The bill (HB 6505) signed last week by Scott directed the Department of Health to pay $1 million.Â€ In 2002, the Department of Children and Families placed J.W., a 10-year-old boy with a his-tory of mental illness and sexually aggressive behav-ior, with a foster family. The family included an 8-year-old boy identified by the initials C.M.H. The Department of Children and Families was aware of J.W.Âs sexually aggressive behavior but did not remove him from the home. C.M.H. later told his par-ents that J.W. had sexually assaulted him. The family filed a lawsuit against the department and reached a settlement but was only able to receive $100,000 without a claim bill. The bill (HB 6509) signed last week by Scott directed the department to pay nearly $5.1 million.Â€ Cathleen Smiley was waiting to make a left turn in her pickup truck in 1998 when a bus owned by Brevard County caused a chain-reaction accident. SmileyÂs truck was hit from behind, and she hit her head and was knocked unconscious. Smiley and other motorists involved in the accident filed lawsuits against the county. But other plaintiffs resolved their cases first, with the county reaching its $200,000 payment limit under sovereign immunity. Smiley reached a settlement with the county for $25,000, and a bill (HB 6515) signed by Scott last week directed the county to pay that amount.Â€ Jean Pierre Kamel, a student at Palm Beach CountyÂs Conniston Middle School, reported in 1997 that he was being bullied by another student, Tron-neal Mangum. Kamel, who had a prosthetic leg because of a birth defect, told school officials that the other youth taunted him and kicked his prosthetic leg. Mangum brought a loaded gun to school on Jan. 27, 1997, and fatally shot Kamel. KamelÂs parents filed a lawsuit, and a jury found the Palm Beach County school district at fault. The parents, however, were only able to receive $200,000 without a claim bill. The bill (HB 6523) signed last week by Scott directed the school district to pay an additional $360,000 based on a settlement agreement.Â€ Christopher Cannon was driving his motorcycle home from work in 2015 when a city of Tallahassee ÂDial-A-RideÂŽ bus turned in front him. Cannon crashed into the bus and was thrown from his motorcycle across two lanes of traffic. Cannon suffered extensive injuries including broken bones, a kidney laceration and a spleen laceration. Cannon filed a lawsuit against the city, with a settlement ultimately reached for $700,000. But Cannon could only receive $200,000 without a claim bill. The bill (HB 6527) signed last week by Scott directs the city to pay the remaining $500,000.Â€ As a Florida Department of Transportation truck traveled north on Interstate 75 in Tampa in June 1999, a 12-foot exten-sion ladder fell off the truck. A motorist behind the truck swerved to avoid the ladder, lost control of her vehicle, crossed over the median and collided head-on with a car driven by Sherrill Lynn Aversa. The two vehicles then were hit by other cars, causing the death of Aversa, an epide-miologist. AversaÂs estate filed a lawsuit against the Department of Transportation and ultimately reached a settlement for $800,000. It could only receive $150,000 without a claim bill. The bill (HB 6535) signed last week by Scott directed the payment of the remaining $650,000.Â€ Ramiro Companioni Jr. was riding a motorcycle in Tampa shortly before noon on Nov. 22, 1996, when a city water-department pickup truck started cross-ing the lanes to make a left-hand turn. Compan-ioni collided with the truck, was knocked unconscious and remained in an induced coma for nearly a month at Tampa General Hospital. He has undergone more than 20 surgeries stem-ming from the accident and filed a lawsuit against the city in 2004. Companioni was awarded $17.9 million in damages but was only able to receive $100,000 without a claim bill. The bill (HB 6545) signed last week by Scott directed the city of Tampa to pay $5 million, which reflects a settlement. INJURYFrom Page A1According to a recent column by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionÂs Tony Young, the history of the local turkey population depletion began in mid-1990s, when county landowners brought it to FWCÂs attention that the wild turkey population had Âvirtually disappeared.ÂŽIn response, the agency established bait stations throughout the county to confirm residentsÂ reports. And in 1998, turkey hunting was shutdown in the county. Between 1998-2000, FWC began a turkey trapping and restocking program, releas-ing 121 wild turkeys at eight locations in the county. As the turkey population grew, the season was extended. In 2006, turkey hunting was reopened, but limited.This spring marked the first full 37 days of turkey hunting season in the county, mir-roring the rest of the state.ÂLocal landowners spent their own money on habitat improvements, such as prescribed burns, timber thinning and planting food plots, which helped speed up the restoration process,ÂŽ he wrote. ÂAdditionally, the NWTF formed a local chapter and assisted in turkey trapping efforts.ÂŽAdams has headed up the local NWTF chapter for 10 years. On Thursday, he and 115 chapter members celebrated the first full-season for turkey hunting at their annual Hunting Heritage Banquet fundraiser held at the Holmes County Agri-cultural Center.ÂItÂs a feeling of accom-plishment that we have taken this from relatively nothing and brought it to the level it is today,ÂŽ Adams said. ÂWeÂve introduced new hunters women and children alike that have never thought to be hunters. It has brought the community together. We would like to get the whole county more people involved in it.ÂŽThe banquet raised more than $20,0 00. The fundswill beused toeducate the community aboutwild turkeys; also, to provide scholarships to students, dinners to the elderly and giftsto sick and under-privileged children, Adams stated.Brandon Newsom, who is running for Holmes CountyÂs District 2 Board of Commissioners seat, attended the banquet and has supported the organi-zation in multiple counties throughout the years. He said he was proud to see the full season return.ÂAs a family member of avid hunters,ÂŽ Newsom said, ÂI am proud to have been a part of the conservation of wild turkeys.ÂŽAdams reflected on the struggle to put the county back into its hunting heritage. He encouraged people to report poachers and to manage the turkeys properly.ÂThe purpose of the National Wild Turkey Federation is to bring awareness to the wild turkeys and to celebrate our hunting heritage,ÂŽ he said. Â(Hunters) should manage the turkeys prop-erly and donÂt be scared to report poachers. Habitat is our biggest asset.ÂŽ TURKEYFrom Page A1 Newsom

** A4 Wednesday, March 28, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserIn the nearly 43 years since my baptism, I have never really experienced a crisis of faith. But IÂll admit that aggravating little questions have lurked in the corners of my mind. For instance, I accept that God could create a great fish to swallow Jonah and release him alive three days later; but realizing how difficult it is to get everyone to agree to ANYTHING I always wondered how this lone Israelite prophet could then convince the entire Assyrian city of Nineveh to repent and stave off GodÂs judgment. Then I read the book ÂThe Authenticity of the Book of Jonah,ÂŽ by Bill Cooper. Information gleaned from history and archaeology made the reason for JonahÂs phenomenal success blindingly obvious. CooperÂs books about Judges and Daniel have also made it easier for me to defend those accounts as history, not myths. Ah, but those are all Old Testament books. At this time of year, people are more focused (positively, negatively or fence-straddlingly) on the central event of the New Testament: the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. I realize that even people with some grudging acceptance of a Supreme Being may have a hard time believing that (a) God sent his Son to be born of a virgin, (b) God would allow that Son to die on the cross for our sins, (c) God would have the power to restore that Son to life and (d) the teachings and miracles of Jesus could be accurately preserved for a 21st century audience. But the Gospel message doesnÂt have to be something that is hard to understand or embarrassing to share. You can be armed with wellresearched, logically argued books that answer alleged contradictions, counter bald-faced skeptic lies and reassure you about GodÂs plan for mankind. Among the most helpful books IÂve found are ÂThe True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ In the GospelsÂŽ (by David Limbaugh), ÂThe Wrong JesusÂŽ (by Greg Monette) and ÂConspiracies and the Cross: How To Intelligently Counter the Ten Most Popular Theories That Attack the Gospel of JesusÂŽ (by Timothy Paul Jones); but the available resources go far beyond those examples. I love books, always have. But page-turners about collectible hatpins or shortcuts in underwater basket weaving or the sex life of James Dean are mere vanity in the Big Picture. Books like the ones IÂm recommending can affect the eternal fate of you and those you have an influence over. I write with urgency because, while Jesus enlisted his disciples to be Âfishers of men,ÂŽ too many Christians and potential Christians have instead fallen hook, line and sinker for all the Âlost gospelsÂŽ and conspiracy theories that invariably enrich dishonest ÂscholarsÂŽ every Christmas and Easter. Exchanges of ÂHe is risenÂŽ and ÂHe is risen, indeedÂŽ used to be mainstream greetings, but their continued existence cannot be taken for granted. Even though religion continues to exist 136 years after Friedrich Nietzsche declared ÂGod is dead,ÂŽ the enemies of the church are playing the long game. They patiently trivialize and stigmatize Christianity, slowly but surely making the call to repentance seem irrelevant or non-urgent. Yes, wear your spring finery and hide some Easter eggs. But more importantly, buy yourself and your church library stacks of Christian apologetics books, before the arrogant opponents of Christ can chortle, ÂHe is silenced; he is silenced, indeed.ÂŽYour Easter Assignment: Study to show thyself approved Danny TyreeOPINION ANOTHER VIEW Have something to say?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. BareÂ“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Opiates are dangerous, contributing to nearly 6,000 deaths each year in Florida Â„ a number that is on the rise. As a special News Herald series on opioids has illustrated this past week, people who start with prescription pain medication can graduate to street drugs like heroin or the ultra-powerful narcotic fentanyl. And the epidemicÂs reach extends past those taking the drugs: Florida officials blame opiates for the dramatic increase in the number of children in state care because their parents are too disabled by addiction to care for them. But opiates are also useful. Doctors wrote 3.6 million prescriptions for the painkillers in 2016, easing the pain of broken limbs, infected teeth, surgical incisions and cancer, among other conditions. For some patients with intractable pain, the relief they get from opioid painkillers is the only thing keeping them from taking their own lives. So who is more important? The people struggling with addiction, and their suffering families? Or those who legitimately need the relief of reliable pain control? Striking that balance has beensignificantly difficult for lawmakers. In the session that just ended, they opted on the side of fighting addiction Â„ passing opioid-prescription measures that are the most stringent in the nation, according to information gathered by the state Legislature. One part of the legislation makes obvious sense. For the first time, all doctors prescribing controlled substances are required to consult the stateÂs prescription-monitoring database before prescribing controlled drugs. This could cut down on doctor-shopping behavior and help the state keep watch for a resurgence of the so-called Âpill mills.ÂŽ But the other measure in the new law might be overly harsh. Prescriptions for designated opiates will be limited to a three-day supply for most patients, or seven daysÂ worth when doctors deem them Âmedically necessary.ÂŽ It also excludes several classes of patients, including those suffering from cancer, terminal illness, those with serious traumatic injuries and those under a regime of Âpalliative care,ÂŽ including those in hospice. Only one other state, Kentucky, has a three-day prescribing limit, according to a National Conference of State LegislaturesÂ survey in late 2017. And KentuckyÂs other restrictions arenÂt as harsh as FloridaÂs. That pushes the nationÂs third-largest state into unknown territory. Does FloridaÂs new law provide enough leeway to ensure that patients suffering from legitimate, sometimes maddening pain have whatever relief high-powered painkillers can provide? Only time will tell; doctors told the Legislature they fear the answer is Âno.ÂŽ State officials shouldnÂt just assume the physicians are wrong. Instead, they should keep close track as the new law is implemented. Finally, Scott should encourage FloridaÂs universities to undertake research into the effectiveness of alternatives to opiates. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Daytona Beach News-Journal, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Drug limits need followupEaster means different things to different people. Many know it as Resurrection Sunday. When we (First Baptist Church Choir) used to do the Passion Play or the Passion of the Christ, that was what Easter means to me. To many, itÂs a new dress or a new spring outfit. Several years ago a new hat was a necessity. The 1948 movie Easter Parade starring judy Garland and Fred Astair and based on the Irvin Berlin song popularized the concept of an Easter Parade where people actually paraded to display their new Easter finery, a concept totally foreign to us living out in the country. In fact, my sister Minnie and I were probably the only ones in our family to get a new dress. That would have been one which our Mama bought fabric and hired or bartered someone to make for us. Since we were almost the same size, only one pattern was required to sew the identical dresses. We werenÂt twins, but a lot of people thought we were. I liked the idea and Minnie Lee, the older sister, hated the idea. That ÂnewÂŽ dress was also worn for Grandpa BrockÂs Birthday, forerunner of the Brock Reunion held the first Sunday in May back then. We also wore them for the MotherÂs Day sing at New Effort on the second Sunday in May. If Easter didnÂt fall on a first Sunday in the month when the Primitive Baptists met at Bethel Church, we usually went to St. JohnÂs Church where my mother had gone to church in her growing up years. At Brackin School, the one room school we attended until sixth grade, Easter Celebration was pretty stark, consisting of an egg hunt in the afternoon. Each child was to bring a designated number of eggs, three or four, to be hidden by the teacher or a couple of the older students. Some families may have had the wherewithal to color theirs, but we did not. No egg dyeing kit, no food color, no color crayons. Mama tried several innovations such as boiling them with broom straws or an orange sack. It was possible to get an orange tint with the orange sack, but the broomstraw was a dismal failure. No Easter baskets for the Wells childrenÂ„-nor anyone else in that little white schoolhouse. We would put our eggs in a brown bag. We probably all put ours in the same bag. Since brown bags had to be purchased for selling cornmeal, their personal use was limited. Daddy saw the use of three or four eggs each as a total waste of farm products that might be sold. The bags were just added waste. Plastic bags hadnÂt been invented then. Actually, plastic hadnÂt been invented either. Since he didnÂt like boiled eggs, he saw the whole idea of an egg hunt a total waste. I guess I learned my dislike of boiled eggs from him. We often found hen nests in the barn or other hidden places or a guinea henÂs nest with perhaps a dozen or so eggs. This was far more exciting to me than hunting them at school where someone invariably brought a raw one to hide. Then when the person finding it cracked it smartly on her forehead, she got a faceful of raw egg. It was supposed to be funny, but I think I probably had allergies in the spring and I just felt sick. I donÂt mean to debunk the celebration of Easter. It is a wonderful opportunity to tell again the most significant event in Christendom, the death, burial and resurrection of the savior of mankind. Bring on the celebration. Bring out the new garments and dress up. I love seeing the children on Easter Sunday in all their finery, the chocolate bunnies and other goodies that fill their colorful baskets. Hide the eggs again and again as long as the children want to find them. This is a joyous time. I love seeing church pews filled even if some of those pew-packers only find their way there on Easter. They hear the wonderful story. They sing the resurrection songs. They acknowledge that He is Risen. He is Risen indeed.Happy Corner: Easter in the 30s and 40s Hazel Tison
** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, March 28, 2018 A5 Staff ReportBONIFAY Â„ A traffic stop for an expired tag led to the ar rest of two men on drug related charges Wednesday, a Holmes County Sheriff's Office news release stated.During a traffic stop Wednesday near the inter-section of Boswell Road and Bonifay Gritney Road, a Holmes County Sheriff's Office deputy asked front passenger Joseph L. Good-man, 28, of Grand Ridge to exit the vehicle, as well as the other passengers. Moments prior to being asked exit the vehicle, Goodman told the deputy that he and his friends had "just smoked a little marijuana," but he wasn't sure if anything else was in the vehicle.A search of the vehicle revealed a cut straw with white residue inside of a wallet belonging to backseat passenger Jerry R. Cone, 36, of Bonifay, the release stated. The deputy also located a red box under the front passenger seat where Goodman had been sitting. The box contained two smoking pipes, digital scales, a metal can with a bag of methamphetamine inside it, another small bag containing methamphetamine, and another container with more meth-amphetamine inside of it.The deputy then searched a backpack found in the backseat. Inside the backpack, which Cone stated belonged to him, the deputy discovered a small, metal container that held two shards of methamphetamine, a double-barrel smoking pipe, and three marijuana cigarettes, the release stated.Cone was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, posses-sion of methamphetamine, and possession of marijuana of less than 20 grams.Goodman was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphern alia.HCSO arrests two for methamphetamine possessionBy Jacqueline BostickThe News 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick firstname.lastname@example.orgCHIPLEY Â„ After pressing for a year to acquire the Campbellton-Graceville Hospital, Northwest Florida Community Hospital is closer than ever to do so. The breakthrough came on the heels of the closing of the legislative session.CEO of NFCH Michael Kozar sat in his office Monday morning appear-ing to be relieved after learning Friday that Gov-ernor Rick Scott signed a bill that would give the hospital access to purchasing the Graceville hospital, which had previously been legally restricted to a leasing option only.ÂFortunately, I got word Friday evening that the governor has signed the bill that was passed by the house and senate, which allows for the hospital dis-trict to be able to sell their real property,ÂŽ Kozar said. ÂWeÂre very pleased with that outcome.ÂŽHowever, getting the bill signed is only one step granted, a huge step to NFCH purchasing the property. The Graceville hospital itself filed bank-ruptcy in May last year. ItÂs currently trying to recover millions of dollars from a company that purchased and ran a mul-timillion dollar insurance scheme through it when it was struggling in debt a couple of years back.ÂThereÂs still some things that are being resolved in the bankruptcy court, but weÂre optimistic that those will go quickly,ÂŽ Kozar said.But with the stalemate over, the hospital can actively pursue the prop-erty something Senator George Gainer and Representative Brad Drake worked extensively on for the past year. The repur-posed facility is expected to create 100 new jobs.ÂI was very proud to share in the efforts to keep an active and oper-ating healthcare provider and treatment facility in our Graceville community,ÂŽ Drake said in a statement Monday. ÂSen-ator George Gainer and I worked together all the way through the last night of our legislative session to ensure passage of a local bill that maintains healthcare options for the Campbellton-Graceville area. The residents here have invested a lot of times and dollars to have health care services in our community, and Senator Gainer and I wanted to make sure that we could continue those services for years to come.ÂŽKozar met with the bankers Monday to arrange for the purchase of the clinic building and met with a partner to dis-cuss what kind of services the facility will offer.The three options to repurpose the facility include impatient geriatric psych program, medical detoxification program and treatment of opioid, drug and alco-hol addiction, and a crisis stabilization unit for Baker Act patients. ÂIt could be a combina-tion of the three,ÂŽ Kozar said. ÂRealistically, we think it will be not until the end of this year before we could reopen the facility.ÂŽNFCH still needs to work on obtaining licensure, a certificate and make renovations on the property to bring it into standards compliance for the kind of facility it will become.ÂA lot of work will have to be done between now and then, but weÂre optimistic that we can get that done by the end of this year, then be able to bring jobs back to the community and service the Panhandle for it psy-chiatric needs,ÂŽ he added.NFCH: A step closer to acquiring Campbellton-Graceville Hospital ABOVE: CampbelltonGraceville Hospital LEFT: Northwest Florida Hospital R.N.s Tisha Davis and Jeanna Carroll may soon be joined on the NFCH staff by some employees displaced by the scheduled closing of Jackson CountyÂs Campbellton-Graceville Hospital.

** A6 Wednesday, March 28, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser JOBSZipRecruiter.comThe world would be a wonderful place if our inboxes were constantly overflowing with compliments, praise and free coffee coupons. But instead, you have to deal with junk email, deadlines and endless questions Â„ and the occasional angry email. Whether itÂs from a coworker, client or your boss, being on the receiving end of a scathing message is never fun. It can be difficult to know how to react. Should you run to your supervisor? Ignore it? Hide under your desk and cry? Instead, follow these steps: 1. Take a pause As tempting as it might be to fire off an equally biting reply, resist the urge to respond immediately. Take a few minutes Â„ or even a few hours Â„ to breathe deeply and collect yourself. 2. Consider the reasoning Consider where this angry sender is coming from. Did you make a costly mistake, and now he or she is furious about it? Or, does this person just seem to be irrationally angry? Identifying the cause of that scorching message is helpful in crafting a fitting response. It helps you determine whether you actually have something to apologize for, or if you need to be a little more firm, direct and rational in your reply. 3. Determine your approach Although it might seem easy to simply craft a response message and never have to encounter that person directly, itÂs important to evaluate whether thatÂs the best tactic. Do you need to set up an in-person meeting or a one-on-one phone call with this person to resolve the issue? Is this something that needs to be escalated to your supervisor? Weigh your options and determine which one best fits the situation. 4. Recognize emotions This person is obviously upset about something. And, regardless of whether he or she has legitimate justification for being angry, itÂs important for you to acknowledge the emotional reaction. If youÂve decided to reply via email, begin by saying something along the lines of, ÂI can understand that youÂre upset about this.ÂŽ It recognizes that youÂre not just brushing off their feelings, and that youÂre hoping to talk through what exactly is causing this outburst. Even better, itÂs usually enough to take their anger down a few notches, simply because they feel heard. However, itÂs important that you avoid the phrase ÂIÂm sorryÂŽ Â„ unless you actually have something you need to apologize for. You donÂt want to send the message that youÂre accepting blame, especially if you think youÂre right. And, stating things like, ÂIÂm sorry to hear youÂre upsetÂŽ or ÂIÂm sorry you feel that wayÂŽ can come across as condescending in emails. 5. Ask questions Asking ÂWhat can I do to help remedy this situation?ÂŽ or ÂWhere do you suggest we go from here?ÂŽ encourages the sender to thoughtfully contribute to the conversation, rather than repeatedly berating and belittling you. Plus, itÂs a pretty solid indicator of whether this person is angry for the sake of being angry, or if he or she has something legitimate to be worked up about. 6. Encourage further discussion After getting through the rest of your explanation, offer the opportunity to discuss this further Â„ but directly this time. Questions like, ÂWould you like to set up a time when we can talk all of this over on the phone?ÂŽ or ÂCan we meet for coffee to go over the details?ÂŽ offer the opportunity to really work the kinks out, without that security blanket of email hanging over you. People are much more brave behind their computer screens.*&!@#$!How to respond to angry work emails FREEPIK

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, March 28, 2018 A9By Josh Lederman and Jill LawlessThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ From Washington to Warsaw, Western nations banded together Monday to expel more than 100 Russian diplomats they accused of being spies, punishing Moscow for its alleged poisoning of an ex-intelligence officer in Britain.President Donald Trump, under constant political heat for his reluctance to challenge Russia, ordered 60 of its diplomats out of the U.S. Â„ all of them spies, the White House said. The United States called it the largest expulsion of Rus-sian spies in American history, and also shuttered RussiaÂs consulate in Seattle, deeming it a counterintelligence threat.All told, at least 21 countries have ousted more than 135 Russians, including 23 kicked out earlier by the U.K.ÂTogether we have sent a message that we will not tolerate Rus-siaÂs continued attempts to flout international law and undermine our values,ÂŽ British Prime Minister Theresa May told Parliament.The American moves illustrated an increased willingness by TrumpÂs administration to push back on the Kremlin, even as the president himself steadfastly avoids chal-lenging Russian President Vladimir Putin personally or directly. Less than a week ago, Trump congratulated Putin for his re-election but didnÂt raise the March 4 spy poisoning, RussiaÂs alleged election-meddling in the U.S. or its own tainted voting process, prompting dismayed critiques even from TrumpÂs fellow Republicans.In a choreographed show of trans-Atlantic unity, the U.S. and European allies carefully timed their announcements for maximum effect.Within a few hours, at least 16 European Union nations expelled Rus-sians, with more likely to follow. Germany, Poland and France each said it planned to boot four Rus-sian diplomats, the Czech Republic and Lithuania ousted three and Italy, two. Canada also took action, kicking out four Russians and denying three who have applied to enter the country.The list included nations in RussiaÂs back-yard that have perhaps the most at stake. Ukraine, a non-EU country with its own conflicts with Moscow, was expelling 13 Russians. All three Baltic states said they would make diplomats leave.Almost all of the coun-tries said publicly that those being expelled were actually Russians intelli-gence operatives working under diplomatic cover.Moscow threatened retaliation of the tit-for-tat variety, suggesting it would kick out an equal number of foreign diplo-mats. RussiaÂs Embassy in Washington responded to the Seattle consulate clo-sure by asking its Twitter followers to ÂvoteÂŽ which U.S. consulate should be shuttered in turn: St. Petersburg, Yekaterin-burg or Vladivostok.ÂThis is an attempt on the lives of Russian citizens on the territory of Great Britain,ÂŽ RussiaÂs Foreign Ministry said. ÂIt goes without saying that this unfriendly move by this group of countries will not go unnoticed.ÂŽYet it was unclear whether the expulsions, which may be inconvenient for Moscow but donÂt take aim at its economy, would be enough to alter PutinÂs behavior.ÂThere is no actual deterrence and squeeze,ÂŽ said James Nixey, head of the Russia program at think-tank Chatham House. ÂThere is, so far, no cyber-response, no financial response.ÂŽStill, the dueling alle-gations added to a serious escalation of tension and distrust between Russia and the West, intensified most recently by a bizarre poisoning this month that evoked the spy-vs.-spy rivalries of the Cold War.Britain has accused Moscow of using the Soviet-developed nerve agent Novichok to poison Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer convicted of spying for the U.K., and his daughter, Yulia, on British soil. The two remain in critical condition and unconscious. The U.S., France and Germany have agreed itÂs highly likely Russia was responsible. Russia has denied responsibility, while accusing Britain of leading a global charge against it without proof.The expulsions came with a chorus of condemnation for the Kremlin Â„ for the poisoning, Russian spying and other Western griev-ances. PolandÂs Foreign Minister, Jacek Czaputowicz, called it Âthe right response to the unfriendly, aggressive actions of Russia.ÂŽ In the Czech Republic, where Russian officials have claimed the poison may have originated, Prime Minister Andrej Babis dismissed that allegation as Âan utter lie.ÂŽAnd the United States warned of an Âunacceptably highÂŽ number of Russian spies in the U.S., describing them as a national security threat. Among the 60 Russians expelled were a dozen posted to RussiaÂs mission to the United Nations who senior U.S. officials said were engaged in Âaggressive collectionÂŽ of intelligence on American soil.ÂWhen we see these espionage tactics that are taking place right here at the heart of the U.N., we canÂt have that,ÂŽ said Nikki Haley, TrumpÂs envoy to the U.N.In Washington, RussiaÂs ambassador was summoned early in the morning and told his dip-lomats have one week to leave the U.S. and must evacuate the Consulate General in Seattle by April 2. Located on the 25th floor of a large, downtown office building, the consulate is a particular counter-intelligence concern because of its close proximity to a U.S. submarine base and a Boeing Co. facility, said U.S. officials.The officials said they estimated Russia had roughly 100 intelligence officials in the U.S., sug-gesting that dozens will remain even after the 60 are expelled. The officials werenÂt authorized to be identified by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.Trump has repeat-edly wavered on whether he believes Moscow was behind the election meddling, despite assessments from U.S. intelligence agencies and the special counsel investigation into Rus-siaÂs actions and potential collusion with TrumpÂs campaign. But this month, TrumpÂs administration hit Russians with its first sanctions for the campaign interference, and also accused Moscow of an elaborate plot to hack AmericaÂs electric grid and infrastructure.Even lawmakers who have scolded Trump the loudest for failing to confront Russia for spying and election meddling praised the expulsions Monday. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called it Âa welcome step forward in holding Putin accountable.ÂŽ The U.S. has kicked out scores of Russians before, though never a group this size. In 1986 the Reagan administration expelled 55, and in 2001 the George W. Bush administration ejected 50 Russians in retaliation for the Robert Hanssen spy case.US, allies band together to expel RussiansA metal fence surrounds the residence of RussiaÂs consul general Monday in Seattle. The United States and more than a dozen European nations kicked out Russian diplomats on Monday, and the Trump administration ordered RussiaÂs consulate in Seattle to close as the West sought joint punishment for MoscowÂs alleged role in poisoning an ex-spy in Britain.

** A12 Wednesday, March 28, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Garry SmitsGateHouse MediaTALLAHASSEE Â„ With contributions coming from 10 players in two NCAA tournament victories for Florida State, it might be hard to single out one.Some effort, however, reveals the answer: sopho-more guard Trent Forrest.A native of Chipley with strong FSU bloodlines, Forrest was the glue for the Seminoles in their two West Region victories last week that have resulted in a berth in the regional semifinals on Thursday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles against Gonzaga.Ninth-seeded FSU (2211) will play No. 4 Gonzaga (32-4) following the other regional semifinal between Michigan and Texas A&M, which begins at 7:37 p.m. ItÂs the SeminolesÂ first appearance in the Sweet 16 since 2011 and their second since 1993.Forrest came off the bench in both games in Nashville but is second on the team in minutes played in the tournament with 58.The nephew of former Florida State football star Amp Lee and the cousin of two FSU tennis players, Terrance and Terrell White-hurst, Forrest is averaging 12.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.0 blocked shots per game and delivered clutch plays down the stretch in FSUÂs 67-54 victory over Missouri and the 75-70 upset victory over region top seed Xavier.His contributions have been sorely needed with a groin injury that has limited Terance Mann, the SeminolesÂ leading scorer and rebounder entering the game, to only 40 minutes. And Forrest has filled MannÂs role as a versatile backcourt player who has made contributions to every category on the stat sheet.Forrest had 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and four steals against Xavier; and 10 points, six rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocked shots against Missouri. He also has had only three turnovers and has made 10 of 15 free throws.Forrest doesnÂt make most of his hay from the outside. HeÂs adept at slashing to the basket and drawing fouls and leaves the 3-point shooting to other players, attempting only 13 this season.Forrest said it begins with defense. Hamilton has praised Forrest for being among the most savvy defensive players among his deep group of guards and he played a key role in limiting XavierÂs Trevon Blueitt, who had 29 points in last yearÂs 91-66 NCAA tournament rout of FSU, to only eight points on 2 of 8 shooting.ÂWe just kind of credited the defense, really, being able to get stops and being able to get out,ÂŽ he said. ÂI feel like that just transi-tioned right into our offense being able to get stops.ÂŽHamilton said ForrestÂs main contribution goes beyond statistics.ÂThereÂs no question that Trent does a very good job of distributing the ball and making good decisions,ÂŽ he said. ÂTrent does a great job defensively, does a great job seeing the whole floor. He makes a tremendous difference when heÂs on the floor.ÂŽ Forrest made some of his biggest plays at the most important times last week. After Missouri cut a 22-point halftime deficit to 50-44 with 9:53 left in the game, Forrest assisted on P.J. SavoyÂs 3-point shot. A few minutes later, he grabbed a defensive rebound, raced down the court and grabbed an offen-sive rebound off a miss by Mfiondu Kabengele, and was fouled, making both shots to give FSU a 65-44 lead.Xavier held a 66-57 lead with 5:37 left but the Semi-noles went on an 18-4 run to close the game. During one sequence, Forrest made a layup with 5:04 left to cut the lead to 66-61, then made a steal and went coast-to-coast for another layup. He was fouled and completed the 3-point play to make it 66-64 with 4:21 left.Then, with 1:12 remain-ing, Forrest made the assist on another 3-point by Savoy that put FSU ahead for good, 71-70.Forrest began getting more playing time in February and made key contributions in one of the most significant regularseason victories for FSU, 80-76 at Louisville. He had 10 points, nine rebounds and five assists. Forrest contin-ued his knack for producing in FSUÂs biggest games as he had 16 points and four assists in an 81-79 over-time victory over Clemson. He scored six points in over-time, including the basket that put the ÂNoles ahead for good, and then scored twice to put FSU ahead by three in the closing minute.He had 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in a loss to N.C. State, then scored a career-high 21 points, with 10 rebounds and five assists in a must-win situation against Boston College to close out the regular season. In his last 11 games, Forrest is averaging 10.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.9 steals, only 1.7 turnovers and is shoot-ing .545 from the floor.ChipleyÂs Forrest the glue for FSU in Sweet 16 runFlorida StateÂs Trent Forrest goes up for a dunk against Missouri in their Â“ rst-round game in the NCAA Tournament on Friday in Nashville, Tenn.

The Associated Press By Barry WilnerThe Associated PressORLANDO, Fla. Â„ ThatÂs a catch.Mention the names Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, Zach Miller and Jesse James, and what looked, sounded and felt like a catch wasnÂt one. If NFL owners pass a proposal from the powerful competition committee, those will be receptions in the future.According to committee chairman Rich McKay and league officiating director Al Riveron, itÂs time. ÂWe want to take these great catches and make them into catches,ÂŽ Riveron said Monday at the NFL meetings, where the owners likely will vote Tuesday on the adjust-ments to the catch rule.Such phrases as Âslight movement of the ballÂŽ and Âsurviving the groundÂŽ will disappear, and fans, players and coaches will get the fulfilment of knowing what they were sure was a reception actu-ally is.The committee looked at dozens of plays dozens of times. They discovered that the previous attempts to clarify what is a catch only confused the issue. So much so that the language of the rules was getting in the way of making the proper call.ÂEvery time, we tried to add language to cure a situation,ÂŽ said McKay, president of the Atlanta Falcons Âand that did not serve us well.ÂWe felt like the word slight was getting people caught up. ItÂs really loss of control. If you lose control of the ball, then you havenÂt satisfied (the process). If you have movement of the ball but havenÂt lost control of it, then you still have it.ÂŽAdded Riveron: ÂIf we see total loss of control, thatÂs the way weÂre going to rule it. But we under-stand there are situations where the ball is going to move. We have to see loss of control.ÂŽMcKay pointed to touchdown receptions by Alshon Jeffery and Corey Clement in the Super Bowl. In both cases, the ball moved a bit in the receiverÂs hands. In both cases, though, on-field officials, then Riveron handling the video review, determined there was possession throughout.ÂThose are catches,ÂŽ he said, noting that under current language in the rules, Âthe ground trumped everything. It didnÂt make a lot of sense.ÂŽThe committee examined plays back to the 1990s and early 2000s, including a pass to the JetsÂ Wayne Chrebet in which McKay said the film was Âso grainy you could barely make it out.ÂŽ He mentioned Bert EmanuelÂs non-reception in the 1999 NFC title game when the tip of the ball touched the ground even though Emanuel had it in his clutches.NFL weighs changes to catch rule Los Angeles AngelsÂ Shohei Ohtani works against the Milwaukee Brewers during the Â“ rst inning of a Feb. 24 spring training game in Tempe, Ariz.

The 20-year-old Acuna will begin the season at Triple-A Gwinnett, pushing back his eligibility for arbitration, but itÂs only a matter of time before he is up with the Braves after he hit .325 with 21 homers, 82 RBIs and 44 steals over three minor league stops last year.Â€ OF Victor Robles, Washington Nationals: Robles, another ath-letic 20-year-old outfielder in the NL East, made his major league debut last September and got into two playoff games in the first round against the Cubs. The Nationals have Bryce Harper, Adam Eaton and Michael A. Taylor in the out-field, but Robles could get into the mix if there are any injuries.Â€ OF Eloy Jimenez, Chicago White Sox: Jimenez, who was slowed this spring by left knee tendinitis, is widely regarded as baseballÂs top hitting pros-pect. He was acquired in last summerÂs Jose Quintana trade with the crosstown Cubs Â„ destined to be a barroom debate in Chicago for years to come Â„ and batted .312 with 19 homers and 65 RBIs for three minor league teams in 2017.Â€ C Francisco Mejia, Cleveland Indians: Cleveland loves MejiaÂs bat so much it is trying the catcher in a couple differ-ent spots to help carve out a place for him in the majors. He played third base in the Arizona Fall League and will begin this year with Triple-A Columbus so he can spend time in the outfield. The Indians have a strong catching tandem with Roberto Perez and Yan Gomes, but Mejia could be back in the majors this summer if he shows the ability to play multiple positions.Â€ RHP Alex Reyes, St. Louis Cardinals: The 23-year-old Reyes could return in May after he hurt his elbow in spring training a year ago, leading to Tommy John surgery. Whether he works as a starter or reliever, he could provide a big lift for St. Louis after he went 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 46 innings in his first major league action in 2016.Â€ INFs Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar, New York Yan-kees: Not a lot of room in New YorkÂs infield after the Yankees traded for Brandon Drury and signed Neil Walker, but Torres and Andujar could help at some point this summer. Torres hit .309 in 23 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last year before he was shelved by a season-ending elbow injury, and Andujar looked great this spring.Â€ RHP Walker Buehler and OF Alex Verdugo, Los Angeles Dodgers: The hard-throwing Buehler and Verdugo will begin the year with Triple-A Oklahoma City, but they could play a role as Los Angeles tries for its sixth straight NL West title. Buehler had a 7.71 ERA in eight relief appearances as a September call-up for the Dodgers, and Verdugo also made his major league debut last year.Â€ OF Jesse Winker, Cincinnati Reds: The 24-year-old Winker hit .298 with seven homers and 15 RBIs in 47 games in his first major league action last summer. The rebuilding Reds have a bit of a crowd in the out-field with Adam Duvall, Scott Schebler and Billy Hamilton, but they are going to want to see if Winker can deliver on his potential.Â€ OF Austin Hays, Baltimore Orioles: Hays, who was ham-pered by a shoulder injury this spring, was promoted to the majors for the first time last September and hit .217 with a homer and eight RBIs in 20 games. The 22-year-old Hays, a third-round pick in the 2016 draft out of Jacksonville University, has big-time power, belting 32 homers in the minors last season.AngelsÂ Ohtani among 2018 rookies to watchWashington NationalsÂ Victor Robles rounds the bases after hitting a solo home run during the seventh inning of a March 2 spring training game against the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, March 28, 2018 A15 PROTEINEXERCISE NUTRITION ADVICEProper nutrition is a key component of any athleteÂs performance. Here are a few recommended practices from IncredibleEgg.org: Â€ Before a workout, load up on whole grains and protein to keep you fueled. Remember, your muscles rely on mainly carbohydrates, but also protein for sustained energy during activity. Â€ A er physical activity, include protein-rich foods like eggs in a postworkout sandwich to help your recovery. Research indicates eating a mix of carbs and protein promotes muscle repair and optimal recovery. HEALTHY EATINGSWITCH UP YOUR ROUTINEIf youÂve been sticking to the same healthy eating routine since Jan. 1, changing things up is critical to staying motivated. SeaPak recommends infusing fresh avor into mealtime or enroll in a new tness class to update your workout regimen. SLOW COOKINGTOP TIPSThese tips from MidwestLiving. com will give you the skills needed for most slow cooker recipes. Ingredients: Thaw meat in the fridge before cooking. Cut veggies the same size so they cook evenly. Size: A 5-quart slow cooker is usually big enough. Food should reach halfway to twothirds up the side. Patience: When you li the lid to check on food, you let heat out and add 20 to 30 minutes to your cooking time. FOODBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowSpring is on the march, but winter isnÂt done with us yet. That means that I am not done with soup. At the winter market last week, I found carrots, onion and celery root, which are all I need to make anything into soup. Together, these ingredients constitute mirepoix (meer-PWAH), a chopped mixture of aromatic vegetables used as a base for many a soup and sauce. There are many regional variations of mirepoix that go by different names and involve the occasional substitution of ingredients (leek for onion here, bell pepper for carrot there). Today weÂll stick with the French way, which is how I learned about it. This may be the closest thing to a French cooking lesson you will ever get from me, as I discuss how mirepoix can be used to enhance two easy soup recipes. CheaterÂs Chicken Soup makes use of rotisserie chicken (one of my favorite ingredients) and mirepoix. The other recipe, Haut Ramen (thatÂs ÂTop RamenÂŽ in French), employs mirepoix in the preparation of packaged Ramen noodle soup. Because both recipes include the part where you have to make the mirepoix, letÂs review that process: Trim and mince equal parts onion, carrot and celery (or celery root, aka celeriac). If using celery stalks, include the leaves. Cut it all into consistently sized chunks, large or small as the recipe calls for. (The Haut Ramen recipe requires a brunoise, which is French for Âfinely diced.ÂŽ Making brunoise is a technique thatÂs more effectively shown than described, so check it out on YouTube.) CheaterÂs Chicken SoupÂ€ Rotisserie chicken, whole or partial (or a home-baked chicken if you have the foresight) Â€ Mirepoix (larger chunks) Â€ Tomato, canned or frozen Â€ Spicy things (optional; my preference is pickled jalapeos) Â€ Salt, soy sauce, Â“ sh sauce, garlic powder, herbs and other Â” avorings Â€ Olive oil or butter Gain control of the remains of the chicken, pull it into pieces, and remove the bones. Snip the bones and tendons into small pieces with cooking scissors, and place them into a pasta basket or similar arrangement that can be submerged in boiling water, along with its contents, and just as easily be removed from the water. One could also put the chicken skin in the pasta boiler to make the soup more oily, if thatÂs your thing. Heat the water and simmer the bones while you get the rest of your mise en place, which is French culinary-speak for arranging your cooking materials. The next step is to cut the mirepoix and saut it gently in olive oil, allowing a mild brown to develop. While the mirepoix is browning and bones are simmering, cut or pull the chicken meat apart to the consistency you wish, and add the meat to the browning mirepoix, allowing it all to cook together for a moment. This would be a good time to play around with herbs and spices. I like thyme, but you could go ginger/ lemongrass, or my momÂs favorite: dill. The soup can be taken in many directions at this point. Remove the pasta basket with bones inside, add the mirepoix and chicken to the pot, and replace the basket of bones back in the pot. At this point, I add some frozen tomatoes from last summerÂs stash to the basket, so the tomato skins can be removed along with the bones and skin. I also add a pickled jalapeo or two, allowing it to contribute gentle heat and acidity to the pot without getting lost and giving someone a hot surprise. The soup will be ready as soon as the carrots are soft enough to eat. But if possible, take a little extra time and let everything cook together for an hour or so. As it cooks, tweak the seasonings as necessary: a little salt here, a bit of garlic powder there, a lilÂ soy sauce, a squirt of Â“ sh sauce, squeeze of lime Â„ until it tastes right. Then drop a dollop of mayo on that masterpiece, and youÂve got some evidence in hand that sometimes cheaters do win.Haut RamenÂ€ 1 package of ramen (preferably the good stuff, like Sapporo Ichiban) Â€ 1 cup mirepoix, equal parts carrot, celery and onion, chopped into brunoise Â€ Sesame oil Â€ Seaweed (a ripped-up sheet of nori, or furikake seasoning) Â€ Egg (optional) Heat the water. Add brunoise mirepoix and Â” avor packet from the ramen. When the water returns to a boil, add the noodles. When the noodles are done, add your egg, if using. Wait a moment, then turn off the heat. Leave the egg whole, or give it a minimal stir with a fork, depending on how you like your yolk, then put the lid on for two or so minutes. Remove the lid. If egg is done to your liking, sprinkle with seaweed, drizzle with sesame oil, and start slurping. Now that you have a taste of the mirepoix possibilities, try to include it elsewhere. Soup starterFresh mirepoix elevates even the topmost of ramen Mirepoix Â„ a combination of chopped carrots, onion and celery root Â„ can be used as a base for many soups and sauces.

** B2 Wednesday, March 28, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Michelle ChapmanThe Associated PressRemington, the storied gun maker that began turning out flintlock rifles when there were only 19 states in the Union, has filed for bankruptcy reor-ganization amid years of slumping sales and legal and financial pressure over the Sandy Hook school massacre.In papers filed Sunday in federal bankruptcy court in Delaware, Rem-ington outlined a plan to turn over control to its creditors and continue operating with up to $100 million from lenders. It remains unclear what will happen to its 3,500 or so employees as it tries to put its finances in order.Remington, whose roots go back to 1816, when the Western frontier beckoned, saw its debts mount with the election of President Donald Trump, who has called himself a Âtrue friendÂŽ of the National Rifle Association but whose victory ended years of panic-buying by people afraid a Democrat in the White House would crack down on guns.In 2017, firearm background checks, a good barometer of sales, declined faster than in any year since 1998, when the FBI first began com-piling such data.The Madison, North Carolina, companyÂs production of one of the best-known weapons in the world, the Bushmas-ter AR-15 rifle, has also proved problematic. The young man who killed 20 first-graders and six educators in the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut in 2012 used a Bushmaster.An AR-15-style weapon made by a differ-ent manufacturer, Smith & Wesson, was used last month in the rampage at a Parkland, Florida, high school that left 17 people dead. That attack has led to huge protests around the country and a new student-led movement to tighten gun laws.Remington was sued by victimsÂ families after the Sandy Hook tragedy. That lawsuit was dismissed because of broad immunity granted to the gun industry, but the Connecticut Supreme Court is weighing whether to reinstate it.Some investors decided after Sandy Hook that they wanted nothing to do with the Remington. Cerberus Capital Management, the private equity firm that acquired Remington in 2007 as gun sales began to boom, tried to sell it less than a week after the shooting. There were no takers.In filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganiza-tion, Remington Outdoor Co. said it would give holders of a $550 million loan to the company an 82.5 percent stake. Other creditors would get the rest.The industry has been hurt by another trend: A large percentage of guns in the U.S. are owned by an increasingly small group of people.A recent study by Harvard University and Northeastern University found that the number of privately owned guns in America grew by more than 70 million Â„ to approximately 265 mil-lion Â„ between 1994 and 2015. But half of those guns are owned by only 3 percent of the population. That small base of what are sometimes referred to as Âsuper-ownersÂŽ has made the industry more unstable.In 2015, Colt Holdings Co., another storied gun maker, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Likewise, profits at Sturm, Ruger & Co. are under pressure, and its stock is down 18 percent this year.Some of Wall StreetÂs heaviest hitters are step-ping into the national debate on guns.BlackRock Â„ a major shareholder in Sturm Ruger, American Outdoor Brands and Vista Outdoor Brands Â„ announced about a week after the Parkland shooting that it wanted to speak with the three firearms makers about their responses to the tragedy.The firm is also looking into creating new invest-ment funds that exclude gun makers and retailers.Remington shoots for bankruptcy protectionBRIEFCASEBEIJINGChina ÂopenÂ to talks with US amid tariff spatChinaÂs government said Monday it is open to negotiating with Washington amid a spiraling tariff dispute following a news report American officials have submitted a list of mar-ket-opening requests.A foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, didnÂt con-firm the report by The Wall Street Journal but said at a regular briefing, ÂOur door for dialogue and discus-sion is always open.ÂŽALBANY, N.Y. Wall Street average bonus topped $184K in 2017A second consecutive year of soaring profits on Wall Street pushed the average bonus paid to securities industry employees in New York City to more than $184,000 in 2017, New York stateÂs top elected fiscal officer reported Monday.The average bonus paid to brokers rose 17 percent to $184,220, Democratic Comptrol-ler Thomas DiNapoli said. Pretax profits for the Wall Street broker-dealer operations of New York Stock Exchange member firms Â„ the traditional measure of securities industry profits Â„ jumped 42 percent to $24.5 billion, the high-est level since 2010, according to DiNapoli.LISBON, PORTUGALSpain busts cybercrime gang after $1.2B spreePolice in Spain have captured a cybercrime gang made up of Ukrai-nians and Russians that allegedly stole more than 1 billion euros ($1.24 billion) from financial institutions worldwide in a fiveyear spree, authorities said Monday.The gangÂs alleged mastermind, identi-fied as a Ukrainian and named only as ÂDenis K.,ÂŽ was arrested in the coastal city of Alicante, 220 miles southeast of Madrid, according to statements issued by Spanish police and European Union law enforcement agency Europol.Three suspected accomplices, said to be Russian and Ukrainian, were also arrested, Spanish authorities said.

RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBETHLEHEMÂ… Bethlehem High SchoolÂs Basketball Coach Carson Lassiter has been named Amazing Teacher for the month of March.Lassiter, now in his fifteenth year of teaching, has been at BHS for 11 years coaching basketball, physical education and teaching health classes.After receiving his degree in business administration from Huntingdon College, Lassiter was an aide at Malone High School for one year before moving back to Montgomery, Alabama to teach at a private school where he earned his teaching certificate. Coaching and teaching run in the Lassiter family as his dad coached at Malone for many years. LassiterÂs wife is the P.E. coach at Bethlehem Elementary School, where he says she is the one who should win this honor.ÂShe is by far the better of the two of us,ÂŽ said Lassiter. ÂShe is, in my opinion, the best physical education teacher in the county.ÂŽThe nomination letter talks about LassiterÂs leadership and genuine interest in the kids he teaches.ÂThrough his leadership, consistency and genuine interest in the students beyond their athletic ability-or lack of ithe made his students and players feel like they had a responsibility to themselves and their community to be the best individuals they could be in all areas of their lives.ÂŽLassiter says his favor-ite part about his job are the kids.ÂMy favorite thing about what I do is definitely the kids,ÂŽ said Lassiter. ÂI am not the best teacher in the world, I donÂt think, but I try to at least talk to the kids. I try to be someone they can talk to.ÂŽThose ideals do not go unnoticed by his nominators.ÂHe genuinely listens to and cares about the students in his classes. He does any task at our school that needs to be done, from substituting on bus routes to cleaning and watching classes when subs cannot be found. He takes the time to invest in his players by teaching them to be responsible for their own actions and to be aware of the needs around them.ÂŽTaking his team to District Champions in Basketball has been the highlight of his career thus far. No other team in the schoolÂs history have made it that far. Lassiter feels as though he doesnÂt deserve the credit for reaching district champs, his players do.ÂPeople want to pat me on the back, which I appreciate, but its my kids that do all the work,ÂŽ said Lassiter.ÂI donÂt do this to win, I do this because I enjoy it and I want to work with good kids,ÂŽ said Lassiter. ÂI definitely have good kids here.ÂŽDo you know an amazing Holmes or Wash-ington County teacher?

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, March 28, 2018 B7New devices are making it easy to vape at schoolBy JoAnne Viviano More Content NowHigh school administrators are increasingly warning parents about teens using e-cigarettes or vapes. Battery-powered vaporizers allow youngsters to inhale vapors from nicotine mixed with liquids in flavors such as bubblegum, cookies-and-cream or Mountain Dew. They also can be used to inhale marijuana and other drugs. ItÂs illegal for unaccompanied minors to use or possess the devices, but high schools and some middle schools across the country have been updating tobacco policies to prohibit e-cigarette use on school property. School officials say confiscations of e-cigarettes have grown from about two or three a year to at least a couple a month. According to a 2014 youth tobacco survey, nearly 41 percent of high school students had tried e-cigarettes, compared with 7.7 percent in 2010. In 2014, nearly 22 percent of high schoolers were current users, meaning they had used the devices within the previous 30 days. Teens are smoking e-cigarettes at a rate higher than young adults and adults, of whom 5.7 percent are current users, said Mandy Burkett, director of the Tobacco Program at the Ohio Department of Health. A number of youngsters, and even some parents, donÂt see the harm in e-cigarettes because they donÂt contain many of the carcinogens found in traditional cigarettes. And some vape the flavors only, without added nicotine. A report released in January by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine found conclusive evidence that replacing traditional cigarettes with e-cigarettes reduces a userÂs exposure to numerous toxicants and carcinogens. However, the report also found that most e-cigarettes emit potentially toxic substances. And it found substantial evidence that use of e-cigarettes by youth and young adults increases the risk that they will at some point use traditional cigarettes. That concerns Dr. Judith Groner, a Nationwide ChildrenÂs Hospital physician who chairs the American Academy of Pediatrics section on tobacco control. Nicotine use in the short-term, she said, can cause cardiovascular issues. In the long-term, it can lead to increasing levels of addiction most easily satisfied by smoking traditional cigarettes. Once a brain develops an addiction pathway, Burkett added, teens are more susceptible to becoming hooked on other things, including drugs. Additionally, Groner said, flavorings, which are approved by the FDA for use as food additives, have not been tested for safety if inhaled.Vaping on the sly LISTINGSFrom Page B6 B7 3-3460 ADVERTISEMENT FOR BIDS CR181C SCRAP Improvement HOLMES COUNTY, FLORIDA Separate sealed BIDS for: CR181C SCRAP IMPROVEMENT will be received by HOLMES COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS at 107 E VIRGINIA AVE, BONIFAY, FL 32425 until April 23, 2018 at 9:00AM (CST).
