No injuries were reported. Offi-cials said a School Resource Officer was on campus at the time of the incident. The student had stated he found the note near a water fountain, but later admitted he wrote the note because he wanted to get out of school, the release stated. The juve-nile is charged with making bomb threats and has been transported to a Department of Justice juvenile deten-tion facility in Panama City.Holmes County Sheriff John Tate urged parents to take time to speak with their chil-dren about the seriousness of bomb threats."School threats are not a matter to be taken lightly," Sheriff Tate stated in the release. "We treat every report like this as credible, but children should also understand that an individual who makes a threat can still be charged, whether or not the threat was legitimate."Sheriff Tate expressed gratitude to the following agencies: Holmes County School District, Bethlehem School staff, Holmes County EMS, Dothan Police Depart-ment, Bay County Sheriffs Office, Carmel Assembly of God Church staff, and the Esto and Pittman Volunteer Fire Departments for their assistance.11-year-old arrested for bomb threat By Lloyd Dunkelberger and Christine Sexton News Service FloridaORLANDO Beginning what is likely to be a costly, negative campaign, Gov.

** A2 Wednesday, April 11, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertisergovernor, never mentioned Nelson, a three-term Dem-ocratic senator, by name. But he repeatedly criticized career politiciansŽ and said he would push for term limits for members of the U.S. House of Representa-tives and the U.S. Senate.We have to all acknowl-edge that Washington is a disaster. Its dysfunc-tional. There is a lot of old, tired thinking up there,Ž Scott said. This concept of career politicians has got to stop. We have to have term limits on Congress.ŽNelson, 75, who is the only Florida Democrat holding statewide office, said he is ready to face Scott, 65."Ive always run every race like theres no tomor-row --regardless of my opponent,Ž Nelson said in a statement. While its clear that Rick Scott will say or do anything to get elected, Ive always believed that if you just do the right thing, the po litics will take care of itself."Scott, a wealthy busi-nessman from Naples who never held a political office before he was elected gov-ernor in 2010, struck an outsiderŽ theme Monday that was similar to his first gubernatorial campaign, when he ran against the Tallahassee insiders.Ž Scotts Senate announcement came on the eighth anniversary of starting his initial bid for governor.Scott said his agenda as governor, which focused on job creation, lower taxes and fewer regulations, met resistance from the Talla-hassee establishment.They (said) governor you just dont fit into Tal-lahassee. You know, I think thats true,Ž Scott said. I never intended to fit into Tallahassee. And guess what? Im not going to fit into Washington either.ŽScott also recounted Floridas recovery from the recession under his leadership, pointing to job creation, tax cuts, a reduc-tion in state debt and a record numbers in tourism.Now weve got to take that same mission to D.C.,Ž Scott said.Scott also talked about his early life in a family that struggled for moneyŽ and lived in public housing. He credited his late mother and the opportunities provided by living in the United States for his rise as a lawyer who founded the Columbia/HCA health conglomerate.It seems to be fashionable now to attack and badmouth this country. Im sick of it,Ž Scott said. There is no place like America. And we need to thank God every day for this country and our opportu-nity to be here.ŽScott made no mention of President Donald Trump, although Scott has been a consistent supporter of the president. He also did not mention the Republican majority that controls the U.S. House and Senate.Scott, however, made several references to his lets get to workŽ slogan, which he has used since his first bid for governor in 2010. We must change Washington. We will change Washington. Together lets get Wash-ington to work,Ž he said.When he ran in 2010, Scott initially was known for his public awkwardness, stumbling through speeches and insisting on a buffer between himself and crowds.There was no evidence of that Scott on Monday, though. Scott confidently delivered a speech, warmly smiling at supporters who cheered him on, including state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, at least a dozen state lawmak-ers, Associated Industries of Florida President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Feeney and prominent insurance lobbyist Fred Karlinsky.When the speech was finished, Scotts wife, Ann, placed her hands on his waist, guiding him through the crowd, helping negotiate an exit and avoiding reporters.Scott was introduced at the event at ODC Construction company by the lieutenant governor of Puerto Rico, Luis RiveraMarin, who said the island would be forever gratefulŽ for Scotts help in recovering from a series of damaging hurricanes.Scott also made a few concluding remarks in Spanish.The negative tone of the campaign is already well underway, with Republicans launching a website, which calls the incumbent a career politician,Ž and the Democrats having a website, which criticizes the gover-nors economic record.Scott won his two guber-natorial campaigns in expensive, highly negative races where he edged out Democratic opponents. In 2010, he beat Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, capturing 48.9 percent of the vote to her 47.7 percent.In 2014, Scott beat former Gov. Charlie Crist by a margin of 48.1 percent to 47.1 percent.However, heading into the Senate race, Scotts popularity numbers are his best since he emerged on the Florida political scene.In a February poll from Quinnipiac University, Scott had a 49-40 percent approval rating from voters, the highest since Quinnip-iac began tracking him in 2011. Nelson had a 48-34 percent approval rating in the same poll.In recent years, Florida governors have had mixed success in making U.S. Senate bids. Crist, a former Repub-lican governor who is now a Democratic member of Congress, lost a 2010 Senate race while running as an independent. Gov. Bob Graham, a two-term Democratic incumbent, beat U.S. Sen. Paula Hawkins, a Republican, in the 1986 Senate race.Four Scott opponents stood outside Mondays event, with motorists occasionally tooting horns or giving thumbs up as they drove past.Our street poll is great,Ž said 40-year-old Wes Hodge of Winter Park. A two-time cancer survivor whose Hodgkin lymphoma has been in remission for five years, Hodge held a sign that read healthcare is not a luxury.ŽIf not for the Affordable Care Act I would not have access to qual-ity health care,Ž he said, adding, we are not unaware that health care is hanging.Ž SCOTTFrom Page A1 A rack of some of the dresses Bell has collected to help students look their best at prom.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, April 11, 2018 A3


** A4 Wednesday, April 11, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserOPINION Near the end of last month, Gov. Rick Scott and President Donald Trump each signed massive spending bills to fund our respective state and national governments, and one key concern critics picked up on was a supposed lack of extra money for election securityŽ „ even though the federal bill contained $380 million to address this issue. As Tammy Patrick, the senior elections adviser at the Democracy Fund, told NPR, The thing that is unfortunate is that its always some catastrophic event before people start paying attention „ it took Florida in 2000, it took a foreign adversary in 2016 before this got taken seriously. [The omnibus spending bill money] will absolutely not fund or remedy us to where we need to be. But its a big step forward.Ž We think we might be overthinking this. Or perhaps thats the Russian ruse: Create doubt where none should exist. Polk County Elections Supervisor Lori Edwards told us in an email that shes not worried about digital manipulationŽ of our voting systems come November. Her confidence is rooted in the fact that Polks vote-tabulation system is never connected to the internet or her offices computer network. Additionally, the equipment itself is kept in secure areas with limited access and monitored by security cameras. When voting machines are shipped out to precincts, her staff relies on tamper-proof seals and passwords. Edwards pointed out that before each election each piece of equipment is tested with a deckŽ of ballots with a known outcome. Afterward, the machines receipt tapes are checked against the results that are phoned in. And that is verified through post-election audits „ which have paper ballots as a back-up. It sounds pretty thorough to us. Edwards said the potential vulnerability resides with the state Voter Registration System, which is linked to the internet. She notes that, as we have seen with any online data system, attempts at breaching will occur. But Tallahassee did set aside money in the 2019 budget, which begins July 1, to provide counties with monitoring devices that augment their own firewalls. This device would report intrusion attempts to the state so they can watch for trends,Ž Edwards told us. I am confident that tampering with election results or voter records would be detected and could be restored,Ž she added. Edwards said her one main concern is the potential for identity theft. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Ledger, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.We would have faith in our electionsIn spring a young mans fancy turns to thoughts of wearing out his thumbs on the keyboard.Ž with apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Late last autumn I finally upgraded to a smartphone. Although some of my relatives still cling to older communications devices (That pharmacy would get a lot more of my business if they skipped all this high-tech folderol and learned the virtues of tin cans and a really long string...Ž), I am like a hog feeding at the trough of apps. I just wish there were more apps designed specifically to help us navigate the trials and tribulations of springtime. Attention, software developers! Here are some apps we really, really need: 1. A variation of the venerable cellphone flashlight. This one would use advanced algorithms to produce just the right wavelengths of light to counteract the glare from pale, white wintertime skin that is suddenly being exposed again. 2. A comical graphics app that portrays Mother Nature as a stereotypical cat. (I think Ill make it hot...I think Ill make it cold...I think Ill make it hot...I think Ill make it cold...Oh, have some hairballs the tornado dragged in...Ž) 3. An app that notifies your local undertaker that you can now die happy because youve cut your lawn 1/ 16 of an inch shorter than that &^%$# at the end of the street. 4. An app that scans a saliva sample and searches an international database until it finds the obscure Achilles heel of all your friends and acquaintances who suffer no ill effects from snorting pollen like its cocaine. (Oh, you gave me an albino duck-billed platypus spleen sample for my centerpiece. You shouldnt have. You really shouldnt have. Throat constricting ...cant breathe...Ž) 5. Hijacking the same sentiment, an app that summons a convertible by remote control and sends it crashing through the front door of the Big Pharma execs who turn out all those ineffectual over-the-counter antihistamines, decongestants and cough remedies! 6. An unflinching app that compares Asian education to the last couple of months of the American school year, with all the movies, wander around outsideŽ days and Dress up like all those old fogeys from 2009 who knew Abe Lincoln personallyŽ days. 7. An app to forecast the exact date of your first catastrophic flip-flop incident of the season (and the likelihood of the ER attendants being in a committed relationship). 8. An app to make up cheerful happily ever afterŽ stories about all those adorable bunnies and chicks who were forgotten after the last Easter candy was gobbled down. 9. An app to send a false alarm and save you from buckling down and doing that dreaded Spring Cleaning. Dont settle for something mundane like a nuclear missile headed for Hawaii. You could have a bulletin like The Titanic has suddenly risen and is on a collision course with Ohio! Forget cleaning out the garage!Ž If anyone has already designed one of the aforementioned apps, please let me know so credit can be given. Ill even give you another assignment: design an app to produce enough white noise to drown out the people who grouse, Stop staring at that screen and admire all the weeds and bugs around you! Dadgum it, get me the string and the can for the newspaper editor so I can give this generation a piece of my mind!ŽHelp! We need these apps for spring!

Call 638-0212. In the Long time favorite musical, Oklahoma,Ž by Rodgers and Hammerstein, a rocky romance concludes with the marriage of the main characters. Then follows a shivaree or a mock serenade by friends of the newly weds. They bang on pots and pans, run the groom through a belt line, and generally make a lot of hoopla.When I was growing up I used to hear the older people talk about serenading a newly wed couple, but my family was never involved in such tom-foolery. Since few people could afford to go on a honeymoon in those days, it was just a way of mark-ing the event somewhat significant, I suppose.While attending a relative Waulene Cook Beasly and husband Tommy Beaslys golden wedding celebra-tion several years ago, Ronnie Cook, another cousin, recalled going with his Dad, Lewis Cook and others when he was about 14 to serenade a couple of newly-weds. They went and got Roland Yates out of bed to go along and play the fiddle. The late Roland is the father of Roy Yates a gifted singer and Wade a well known fiddler, both of whom are now deceased.At the shivaree they blew car horns, rang cow bells, and beat and banged on pots, pans, and plow tools. They danced to Rolands fiddling, rode the groom around on a rail, and kept the newly weds up most of the night.My dad told about going with his older brother, Uncle Alex Wells, and a cousin Doug Anderson to serenade Emmett and Lucinda Sims Pipkin on their wedding night. They obviously werent too well received. Emmits brother Lee was visiting them and he and the groom picked Doug who was into the sauce up and tossed him out the door, frontier western style. My dad and my uncle left willingly and the planned festivities fell flat. By then cousin Doug who was pretty well inebriated, was walking along the dirt road crying and moaning of his painful injuries and saying, I dont never want to see nor hear tell of no more G.D. Pipkins.ŽI have never been involved in a shivaree nor a serenade, but they appear to have been more fun for the revelers than the recipients. This may be how wedding receptions came to be. The family provides cake and punch and whatever else they desire or can afford. This allows the bride and groom to slip away leaving the revelers to enjoy the party.When Jack and I married on Thurs-day, Dec.29,1949 because his mother objected to a Friday wedding, saying you should never begin anything on Friday that you cant finish that day. We had no type of reception planned although I had made a double recipe of a toasted pecan cake with caramel frosting for expected family. I had been doing most of the cake-baking for my family since I was about 12.My hospitable Dad, however, invited all the wedding guests at our 11:00 A.M. ceremony to the home for lunch. My Mom about fainted, but somehow rose to the occasion and fed all those who chose to go. We escaped to Gainesville where Jack was finishing his final semes-ter at the University of Florida with only a few tin cans tied to his 40 Chevrolet.

Investigators set up a meth buyŽ with Michael Scott Wil-liamson, 48, of Bonifay.The meeting place for the meth buy was in Dogwood Lakes Park, and the arrangement was for Williamson to deliver a half-ounce of meth.Williamson arrived at the meeting point as the passenger of Perry John Williamson, 48, of Bonifay. Also in the vehicle were Bobby D. Williamson, 33, and Charles Everett Durden, 59, both of Slocomb, Alabama, the release stated.Driver Perry Williamson attempted to drive away after making a loop in the meeting location parking lot but was stopped when HCSO investi-gators surrounded the vehicle and ordered the occupants to exit, the release stated. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, a Pop-Tart wrapper containing a clear bag of meth-amphetamine was found in the front passenger cup holder. A bag containing a set of digital scales and a measuring spoon with meth residue was also recovered from the trunk.All four men were arrested and booked into the Holmes County Jail on charges of traf-ficking methamphetamine.Meth buy sting leads to 4 arrestsSpecial to Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY A shoeprint evidence at a crime scene walked an otherwise bad situation into a positive direction.A recent investigation into the Friday, March 30 burglary of a Bonifay business resulted in not only a Holmes County Investigator solving the incident … but also in an opportunity to redirect a juvenile through the benefit of Holmes County Teen Court.An investigator responded to the business shortly before 9:30 a.m. Saturday, March 31 and was advised that sometime during the previous night, someone had thrown a rock through a window and crawled into the building.Nothing had been taken from the property; however, the complainant stated several items had been moved around, and the subject had left behind shoeprints with distinguishing marks.The investigation led to a local 12-year-old juvenile whose shoes matched the prints found in and around the business.The juveniles mother later called the investigator to state her son admitted to her that he busted the window out of curiosity because he wanted to go in and look around.While the juvenile was charged with criminal mischief, the victim agreed to have the case referred to Holmes County Teen Court.This volunteer-led diversionary program will afford him the chance to not only take responsibility for and learn from his actions, but to also earn a fresh start by completing requirements set forth by his peers and adult Teen Court leaders.Holmes County Teen Court also helps put control of our first-time juvenile offenders future back in their own hands by giving them a chance to make things right and take pride in their new, positive decisions,Ž said Holmes County Sheriff John Tate. We understand that youth sometimes make unwise decisions and simply need support and guidance to make better choices and walk a better path.ŽShoeprints lead to solved burglary and a second chance Durden WIlliamson Williamson WIlliamson

Tammy Duckworth has given birth to a baby girl, making her the first U.S. senator to give birth while in office.The Illinois Democrat announced she delivered her second daughter, Maile Pearl Bowlsbey, on Monday. Her office says Duckworth is recovering well and asked for privacy. Duckworth, a 50-year-old veteran who lost her legs in the Iraq War, is one of only 10 lawmakers who have given birth while in Congress. Her first daughter, Abigail, was born in 2014.

[SZILARD KOSZTICSAK/MTI VIA AP] By Zeina Karam and Bassem MroueThe Associated PressBEIRUT „ International condemnation grew over a suspected poison gas attack in a rebel-held town near Damas-cus said to have been carried out by the Syrian government, while Syria and its main ally, Russia, blamed Israel for airstrikes on a Syrian air base Monday that reportedly killed 14 people, including four Iranians.The timing of the airstrikes in central Homs province, hours after President Donald Trump said there would be a big price to payŽ for the chemical weapons attack, raised ques-tions about whether Israel was acting alone or as a proxy for the United States.Israel did not comment on Mondays missile strike. The Jewish State typically does not comment on its airstrikes in Syria, which have been numer-ous in Syrias civil war.The fast-paced developments threatened to further hike tensions between the U.S. and Russia, which has in the past warned against any U.S. military action against President Bashar Assads government. Iran, a key ally of Assad, condemned the air-strikes, which it said killed four Iranians, including a colonel and a member of the Revolutionary Guards aerospace force.Opposition activists said 40 people died in Saturday nights chemical attack in the town of Douma, the last remaining rebel bastion in the eastern suburbs of Damascus, blaming Assads forces. The attack killed entire families in their homes and underground shel-ters, opposition activists and local rescuers said.The Syrian government strongly denied it carried out a chemical weapons attack and the Organization for the Pro-hibition of Chemical Weapons said it has opened an investigation. In a statement, it said a fact-finding mission was gathering information from all available sources to establish whether chemical weapons were used.Trump on Monday condemned the heinous attackŽ in Syria .British Prime Minister Theresa May said Assads government and its backers, including Russia, must be held to accountŽ if it is found to have been responsible for the suspected poison gas attack. Yes, this is about the actions, the brutal actions by Assad and his regime. But it also is about the backers of the regime, and of course Russia is one of those backers. ... And they need to look very carefully at the posi-tion they have taken,Ž she said.The European Union also laid the blame squarely on Assads government.The U.N. Security Council was holding an emergency meeting Monday to discuss the chemical attack.It was the second such airstrike this year on the Syrian air base, known as T4, where Iranian fighters are believed to be stationed. Israel hit the base in February, after it said an Ira-nian drone that violated Israeli airspace took off from it.Russias Defense Ministry said two Israeli aircraft targeted the base Monday, firing eight missiles. It said Syria shot down five of them while the other three landed in the western part of the base. Syrian state TV quoted an unnamed military official as saying that Israeli F-15 warplanes fired several missiles at T4. It gave no further details.Israels Foreign Ministry had no comment when asked about reports of the airstrikes. Hours after the attack, the Army of Islam rebel group agreed to surrender the town and evacuate its fighters to rebel-held northern Syria, Syrian state media reported. The group also agreed to release its prisoners, a key government demand.More than 100 buses entered Douma Sunday night to take the fighters and their families to Jarablus, which is under the shared control of Turkish troops and allied Syrian forces, Syrian stateaffiliated al-Ikhbariya TV said.Syrian state TV said two buses left early Monday and 11 more buses were getting ready to move.Syrian state media said dozens of civilians who had been held for years by the rebels were set free.The evacuations follow a pattern of departures around the capital and other major Syrian cities as the govern-ment reasserts its control after seven years of war.In his tweets Sunday, Trump called Assad an animalŽ and delivered a rare personal criticism of Putin for supporting him. Trump has declared his intent to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria in the coming months, despite resistance from many of his advisers.More than 500 people, mostly women and children, were brought to medical centers complaining of diffi-culties breathing, foaming at the mouth and burning sen-sations in the eyes. Some had bluish skin, a sign of oxygen deprivation, according to a White Helmets statement. The symptoms are consistent with chemical exposure.Douma is part of the eastern Ghouta suburbs, where a 2013 chemical attack killed hun-dreds of people and was widely blamed on the government. The U.S. threatened military action but later backed down.Syria denies ever using chemical weapons during the war and says it eliminated its chemical arsenal under a 2013 agreement brokered by the U.S. and Russia.Israel blamed for Syria strikeA bus is shown early Monday carrying civilians who were released by the Army of Islam group who were held since 2013, in Damascus, Syria, according to Syrian state media. SANA is reporting that dozens of civilians who had been held for years by the rebel group have been freed. [SANA VIA AP] NATION & WORLD

** A12 Wednesday, April 11, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser NASCAR THIS WEEKFEUD OF THE WEEK SPEED FREAKSA few questions we had to ask ourselvesQUESTIONS & ATTITUDECompelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answersTEXAS THREE THINGS WE LEARNEDYes, its early, but is Kyle the obvious man to beat now? GODSPEAK: He is one of the three top drivers, joining Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. in the hunt. Busch won the Monster Energy model award. They swarmed Texas Victory Lane. KENS CALL: On a weekly basis, the road to Victory Lane seems to always cross Kyle Buschs path. But it doesnt matter until November.An eighth for Bubba Wallace at Texas. A sign of things to come? GODSPEAK: That was big. If Richard Petty Motorsports can string a few of those together, that would be huge. KENS CALL: A top-10 at a nonplate race is a good sign, yes. He does need to mix in about one a month, however, to take a big step toward bigger things. DENNY HAMLIN VS. ARIC ALMIROLA: On Lap 178 these two got together on a restart and took out “ ve other cars. Everyone involved chalked it up to hard racing. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Hard racing? Not really. Hamlin blamed himself but used Almirolas name a lot during the explanation. Its my responsibility to keep the car under me,Ž Hamlin said. Surprised at the familiar Cup Series schedule for 2019?A little surprised, but only because it was released so soon. Theres been a ton of free advice ” owing toward NASCAR, regarding what needs to be done to either condense the season or add and subtract certain tracks. So we thought that maybe, just maybe, the suits would think about it a little longer before pulling the trigger with the same ol, same ol.Why no change?One of two things. NASCARs leaders know theyre in a search for the momentum they had several years ago, but assume the somewhat traditional schedule isnt an issue. Or, for now, there are just too many moving parts between tracks, race sponsors and the network commitments. That second reason, by the way, is the better bet.„ Ken Willis, ken.willis 1. Truex streakMartin Truex Jr. had an impressive streak come to a sudden halt when his right-front tire went ” at, sending the defending Cup Series champions No. 78 Toyota into the wall. Truex had 14 consecutive top-“ ve “ nishes at non-plate tracks before “ nishing 37th (last) at Texas Motor Speedway.2. Championship tellIt is not that hard to pick out the early-season championship contenders. Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Truex have combined for “ ve victories through seven races. Want more insight? Four times this season the three drivers have “ nished “ rst and second to each other.3. No cell serviceKevin Harvick had to surrender his cellphone last week to of“ cials at Augusta National Golf Club. Harvick attended the Masters on Thursday. Everything (in NASCAR) is about trying to “ gure out who's better on social media,Ž he said. And (there) they take your phone away.Ž „ Godwin Kelly, Martin Truex Jr. saw his impressive streak of “ nishes literally go up in smoke at Texas.

Scott started the run with a two-handed tip dunk, then added a 3-pointer, and a transition dunk plus the foul for a three-point play. He later caught a lob pass from Jackson for another dunk and nailed another three to make it 38-27.The East answered with a pair of baskets by Blountstowns Jamal Howard and a driving bucket for Burse to get to within six, but the West outscored the East 11-6 over the final 3:30 to take a 49-39 lead into the halftime break. A tip-in by Rutherfords Eddie Dubose and a reverse layup by Burse to start the second half cut the West deficit to six, but a three from Jones, a tip dunk by Scott, and a pull-up jumper by Nicevilles Trey Green-Harris quickly put the West back up double figures at 56-45.Scott continued to have his way with the East defense, hitting a short jumper, a hook shot in the lane, and then finishing a three-point play in the paint to make it 63-51. A corner three from Fort Walton Beachs Nikko Bryant moments later put the West up 15 with 13:55 to play. The West lead remained at 15 after a driving basket by Jackson made it 90-75 with 5:30 to play, but the Easts depth advantage … 12 play-ers to just eight for the West … and the full-court defensive pressure that exploited it, quickly started to turn the tide toward the East. Burse started the decisive run with a basket, followed by a transition dunk by Ferrell, and a bucket by Antonio Bellamy following a West turnover to cut the defi-cit to nine.A driving basket by Godwin was followed by four straight points from Ferrell, the first two on a lob pass from a baseline out of bounds play and the second two on a pair of free throws, made it a five-point game with 3:08 to go. The East press forced another turnover that resulted in a layup by Sims to make it 92-89 moments later.Trailing 94-90, the East got another steal that led to a short bank shot by Ferrell, and a steal and layup in the backcourt by Godwin tied the game 94-94 with 1:04 on the clock.

The East used a 14-2 run to start the second quarter to seize early control of the game, with a driv-ing bank shot by Holley followed by 3-pointers from Hutchinson, Ponce de Leons Devyn Butorac, and Poplar Springs Robin Tate making it 34-20 with 6:40 on the clock.But the West answered right back with a 16-3 run to pull to within a point. Payton started the run with a basket and a three-point play by Tassin, a two-point jumper by Aaliyah Davenport, and a layup by Payton trimmed the deficit to five. Kori Jones stopped the spurt with a 3-pointer from the right wing, but a flip shot in the lane by Genesis Long, a 3-pointer by Tassin, and a free throw by Payton made it 37-36 with 1:41 to half.Hutchinson finished the quarter strong with a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws to give the East a 42-38 edge at the break. The East started lighting it up from 3-point range again when the second half began, with a triple from Laura Jones sandwiched between a pair of Holley threes making it 53-40. After an offensive rebound and putback by Geer, Boze-mans Shelby Suggs hit another 3-pointer for the East and followed with a short jumper to make it 60-45 with 6:13 left in the third. A transition basket by Hutchinson on a feed from Laura Jones gave the East its biggest lead of the day at 68-52 with 3:03 to play, but the West again fought back with a 13-2 run to get back to within five. Payton started the spurt with a 3-pointer and Tassin followed with back to back threes of her own. The East pushed the lead back to nine when Holley finished the third with a driving floater and then drove into the lane and dished off to Geer for two.Another three from Laura Jones to start the fourth quarter made it 77-65, but the West countered with a 10-2 run featuring six straight points by Payton, the last on a short jumper, to get back to within four. A basket by South Waltons Allee Coble and a 3-pointer from Bakers Kashira Casey brought the West even at 89-89 with 3:37 remaining.

FOOD By Ari LeVauxMore Content NowAs the ides of April grow near, garlic lovers across the Northern Hemisphere find themselves facing a similar sight: green sprouts forming in our cloves. Like the shared bond of financial bloodletting that American wage earners endure at roughly the same time, the sprouting of the garlic signals a change in ones wealth status, regardless of the race, gender or socioeconomic status of the individual garlic eater. In the same way that taxes take a bite out of ones net worth, the annual sprouting of the garlic is our cue that the garlic stash will soon be cashed. This should matter to all eaters of garlic, and not just the growers and hoarders. Until further notice: If you purchase garlic, prepare to purchase sprouted garlic. This latitude-wide response to spring signals that the end is sight. The cloves will grow steadily softer in the coming weeks, shriveling as the little plant diverts energy from the clove (which is a actually a leaf modified into a storage organ) to the shoot thats forming in its core, and will soon emerge from the tip. A true delicacy Most cooks dig out that sprout; a common refrain is that the green part adds bitterness. But that practice never sat well with me, in part because I consider sprouts, in general, to be delicacies in the purest sense of the word: The growing tip of a plant is often the most delicate form of that plant. In many cases, such as bamboo, asparagus or ferns, the shoot form is the only part that is edible. Its springtime, after all, and sprouts are everywhere. Horsetails by the creek, weed sprouts in the garden. Everything I think I know about botany and nutrition and flavor makes me believe that garlic sprouts will be good. Props to blogger Jill McKeever, one of the few to share my view, who writes, ... the bite of garlic that hits your palate is unmistakably garlic but it doesnt hang long, compared to eating a fresh garlic clove that will stay with you for hours.Ž Thanks to my new research, Ive come back around to what most cooks do when confronted by that green sprout staring up from the cutting board: Slice open the clove and remove the sprout. But maybe I do it more carefully than most, because its the sprout I want. And I want it intact. Except the scabby part, or the area above it. Thanks to my research I now trim higher off the bottom once the clove has sprouted. This time of year, the white part of the garlic holds down the traditional garlic tasks (as long is they are crispy enough to chop), while the mild green sprouts can be used in playful, beautiful and delicious ways, similar to how scapes can be prepared. Chinese-style with pork and oyster sauce, for example, or slowly browned in butter, on toast. Growing garlic Alas, like death and taxes, the decline of garlic is inevitable this time of year. Especially if you identify with the shriveling white part, rather than the waxing green shoot, bursting with vigor. But if you can shift gears and focus on the sprout, on the other hand, the party is only getting started. And depending on how much sprouting garlic one has on ones hands, one can either prepare a tasty treat and be done with it, or get to work. One option is put your sprouts in a place where they can grow. The cloves can be planted in pots, or in the newly thawed garden. They wont develop subterranean bulbs like they would have had you planted them last fall, but they will grow lots of spicy foliage that you can use when youre low on the white stuff. For the landpoor, McKeever suggests placing your sprouting bulb in a dish with a little water and setting it on a windowsill. As they grow, use your garlic sprouts like they are chives, scallions or other spicy sprouts. Chop and sprinkle the spicy, pungent greenery wherever you wish. But unlike those onion-y shoots, garlic shoots are less hollow in the middle and have more bulk. Its more asparagus-like, and can be prepared as such, in long spears, in the pan or steamer. Just dont burn it. Thats the only way a properly trimmed garlic sprout should taste bitter.Garlic provides a di erent kind of spring sproutGiving up the greenFLASH IN THE PANVISUAL HUNT IMAGES

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, April 11, 2018 B1CELEBRATE By Diane M. RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comWASHINGTON AND HOLMES COUNTIES … Florida Department of Health (FDOH) in Holmes and Wash-ington counties celebrated National Public Health Week.The theme was "Changing Our Future Together," which highlighted the importance of engaging communities and partners in all sectors, as public health workers strive to put health within every-ones reach.FDOH Health Officer for Washington and Holmes Counties Karen Johnson believes that both counties are in decent health but could do better."We are better than we were as far as public health rankings," said Johnson. "But we can definitely do better."The 2018 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps tool show Holmes County has improved from No. 59 to 57 out of Floridas 67 coun-ties and Washington County up to No. 50 from 66. The study was released by the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.Two main programs that the two counties highlighted for Health Week were: Diabe-tes Prevention Program and HIV Pre-Exposure Prophy-laxis (PrEP).Obesity has long been an issue in both counties and can lead to the development of Type II Diabetes. And with statistics such as 15. 3 percent of adults in Washington and 16.5 percent in Holmes County having been diagnosed with diabetes compared to the state average of 11.8 percent it is impera-tive to see better health habits, FDOH officials said.The goal of the program is to help adults achieve and maintain a weight loss of five to seven percent of their ini-tial body weight. Achieving and maintaining at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week is also part of the objective.The program is one year long with classes every week for 16 weeks that teach the tools to live a healthier life.Reducing incidences of HIV infections is another one of FDOH top priorities. By providing PrEP to those at the highest risk for HIV infection, regardless of the clients ability to pay, is one way FDOH plans to eliminate HIV transmission.A prescription of Truvada for PrEP has proven to be an effective prevention program for patients that are compli-ant in taking their pills every day, officials said.In 2016 there were 93 people living with HIV in Washington County and 21 people in Holmes County. Those statistics make this program essential to reducing the number of local HIV cases. In order to take part in this program and be prescribed Truvada, blood work has to be completed along with questionnaires. A 30 to 90 day supply with no refills can be prescribed and follow up blood work is required every 90 days to assess side effects.Other programs that were offered during National Public Health Week were, Behavioral Health, Injury and Violence Protection and Environmental Health.If anyone is interested in either one of the programs above contact FDOH in Washington County by call-ing 850-638-6240 or Holmes County at 850-547-8500.FDOH looks to Changing Our Future TogetherThe Green Dot Program is one that is offered by FDOH that was highlighted during the recent Public Health Week to target Injury and Violence Protection.

But far bigger gains slipped away as the market suffered a steep afternoon decline.Stocks climbed higher and higher in the first hours of trad-ing, and at about 2 p.m. the Dow Jones industrial average was up 440 points. That put the market on track to make up almost all of the ground it lost during a big sell-off on Friday. But stocks have repeatedly changed course as investors tried to guess the outcome of the U.S.China trade dispute, and they did it again Monday afternoon.Health care companies finished with strong gains, and tech-nology companies like Microsoft and Apple regained some of their recent losses. Banks rose along with interest rates. But industrial and retail companies finished with losses, and smaller companies fared worse than larger ones did.Every day the market wakes up and it struggles with whether it should pay attention to noise or pay attention to fundamentals,Ž said Marina Severinovsky, an investment strate-gist at Schroders. She said stocks have done well recently when investors can get their minds off the trade disputes because the global economy and the U.S. economy are still growing.When companies start to report their first-quarter results later this week, she added, the results are likely to be good.The S&P 500 index gained 8.69 points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,613.16. The S&P 500 fell 1.4 percent last week, with large losses Monday and Friday and strong gains in between.The Dow Jones industrial average rose 46.34 points, or 0.2 percent, to 23,979.10. The Nasdaq composite jumped 35.23 points, or 0.5 per-cent, to 6,950.34. The Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks added 1.17 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,514.46. Stocks rise, but biggest gains fade This March 20 photo shows the YouTube app on an iPad in Baltimore. [PATRICK SEMANSKY/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Matt OBrienThe Associated PressThe fine print of YouTubes terms of service has a warning that goes unheeded by millions of children who visit YouTube to watch cartoons, nursery rhymes, science experiments or videos of toys being unboxed.If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use the service,Ž the terms say. There are lots of other great web sites for you.ŽIn a complaint filed Monday, child advocates and consumer groups are asking the Federal Trade Commission to investigate and impose potentially billions of dollars of penal-ties on Google for allegedly violating childrens online privacy and allowing ads to target them.Google profits handsomely from selling advertising to kid-directed programs that it packages,Ž said Jeff Chester, director of the Center for Digital Democracy, one of the groups that drafted the complaint. They created a successful model mon-etizing kids data.ŽTelevision networks also run ads during car-toons and other programs aimed at kids.The difference? YouTube does so with a lot of data collection. Its business model relies on tracking IP addresses, search history, device identifiers, location and other personal data about its users so that it can gauge their interests and tailor advertising to them. But a 1998 federal law pro-hibits internet companies from knowingly collecting personal data from kids under 13 without their parents consent.The coalition accuses YouTube of violating that law and deliberately profiting off luring children into what Chester calls an ad-filled digital playgroundŽ where com-mercials for toys, theme parks or sneakers can surface alongside kid-oriented videos.YouTube said in an emailed statement that it will read the complaint thoroughly and evaluate if there are things we can do to improve. Because YouTube is not for children, weve invested significantly in the cre-ation of the YouTube Kids app to offer an alternative specifically designed for children.ŽThat toddler-oriented YouTube Kids app, launched in 2015, offers more parental controls but is not as widely used „ and features a selection of the same videos and channels that kids can also find on the regular YouTube service.Although its not known if the FTC will take action, the complaint comes at a time of increased public scrutiny over the tech industrys mining of per-sonal data and after the FTC opened an investigation last month into Facebooks privacy practices.For that reason, the FTC may be more reinvigorated and ready to take these issues seriously,Ž said Josh Golin, director of the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, which drafted the complaint along with the Center for Digital Democracy and a George-town University law clinic. Several other groups have signed on, including Common Sense Media, which runs a popular website for families, and the advocacy division of Consumer Reports.I think the day of reck-oning has arrived,Ž said U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat who co-authored the 1998 law and says he wants the FTC to look into the YouTube complaint. Americans want to know the answers as to whether or not the privacy of their children is being compro-mised in the online world.ŽFTC spokeswoman Juli-ana Gruenwald Henderson said the agency looks forward to reviewing the letter. She said the FTC already has brought more than two dozen cases for violations of the 1998 law. It has settled child privacy cases with Yelp, mobile advertising network inMobi and electronic toy-maker VTech.None of those services are as popular for kids as YouTube, which has tod-dler-themed channels with names like ChuChuTV nursery rhymes, which as of last week counted more than 16 million subscribers and 13.4 billion views. It also has many channels that cater to preteens.Kandi Parsons, a former FTC attorney who now advises companies on child-privacy compliance, said that because YouTube is a general-audience ser-vice, it could be hard to determine if parents are curating content for their kids to watch or letting them use it on their own. Parsons said the FTC so far hasnt gone after kiddirected channels within broader media websites, though that doesnt mean it wont.

Security Coun-cil has steadily tightened trade restrictions as leader Kim Jong Uns government pressed ahead with nuclear and missile development in defiance of foreign pressure.Beijing was long Pyongyangs diplomatic protector but has sup-ported the U.N. sanctions out of frustration at what Chinese leaders see as their neighbors increasingly reckless behavior.China accounts for nearly all of the isolated Norths trade and energy supplies.The latest ban includes components, software and tools for aircraft manufacturing, carbon fiber, high-voltage and hightemperature equipment, and tools for mixing and measuring chemicals.Beijing previously imposed limits on oil sales and cut deeply into the Norths revenue by banning purchases of its coal, textiles and seafood. North Korean businesses in China were ordered to close and migrant workers were sent home.Despite the loss of almost all trade, the impoverished North has pressed ahead with weapons development that Kims regime sees as necessary for its survival in the face of U.S. pressure.China bans exports to NKorea of weapons-related goods

PATE By Emily Bazar Kaiser Health NewsRule No. 1: Stay alive If you or a loved one wants to beat an opioid addiction, first make sure you have a handy supply of naloxone, a medication that can reverse an overdose and save your life. Friends and families need to keep naloxone with them,Ž says Dr. David Kan, an addiction medicine specialist in Walnut Creek who is president of the California Society of Addiction Medicine. People using opioids should keep it with them, too.Ž More than 42,200 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2016, victims of a crisis thats being fueled by the rise of a powerful synthetic opioid called fentanyl, which is 30 to 50 times more potent than heroin. Rock stars Prince and Tom Petty had fentanyl in their systems when they died. People can become addicted to opioids through long-term use, or misuse, of prescription painkillers. In most cases, that leads to heroin use, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. If youre ready to address your own addiction, or that of a loved one, know that you may not succeed „ at first. You probably wont be able to do it without outside help or medications. And youll probably have to take those medications for years „ or the rest of your life. Getting over a drug addiction is a process. There are going to be ups and downs,Ž says Patt Denning, director of clinical services and training at the Center for Harm Reduction Therapy in San Francisco and Oakland. We need to hang with people while theyre struggling. It might take awhile.Ž Thats why Denning and others suggest you start with having naloxone on hand, which can help you stay alive through the process. Naloxone, which can be administered as a nasal spray or injection, is available without a prescription in more than 40 states. Ask your pharmacy if it stocks the drug. Rehab alone doesnt work People addicted to opioids face staggering relapse rates of 80 to 90 percent within 90 days if they try short-term rehab or detox programs that wean them off the drugs without assistance from medications, says Richard Rawson, a UCLA psychiatry professor emeritus. Rawson warns that rehab can also increase the risk of an overdose, because your bodys tolerance to opioids is lower after you withdraw from them. If you leave rehab and take the same dose you used to take, youre not just going to get high, youre going to be dead,Ž he says. Instead of treating opioid addiction like a curable illness, he and other experts liken it to lifelong, chronic conditions such as diabetes that require ongoing management. This isnt going to be one visit. If you have an addictive disorder, this is going to be the rest of your life,Ž says Dr. Stuart Gitlow, an addiction specialist in New York City who is past president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine. Chronic illnesses often require medication. Rawson and others point to two drugs in particular that may help break your addiction: buprenorphine and methadone. There is some unwarranted stigma attached to these drugs, along with a belief that youre just exchanging one addiction for another,Ž Kan says. While these medications are actually opioids themselves, they control craving and withdrawal „ and help prevent the compulsive and dangerous behavior often associated with addiction. They also reduce your chances of an overdose, Rawson says. And they protect you from other risks that come with opioid addiction, such as exposure to blood-borne infections from sharing needles, including HIV and hepatitis C. Essentially, the medications make you comfortable enough physicallyŽ to confront the issues behind your addiction, from anxiety and depression to post-traumatic stress disorder, Denning says. The federal government agrees. Abundant scientific data show that long-term use of maintenance medications successfully reduces substance use, risk of relapse and overdose, associated criminal behavior, and transmission of infectious disease, as well as helps patients return to a healthy, functional life,Ž according to the Surgeon Generals 2016 report on addiction in America. To obtain methadone, you must visit a clinic governed by state and federal rules. These clinics are not particularly patient-friendly. You have to go every day. You cant travel,Ž Denning says. It takes over your life.Ž Buprenorphine, on the other hand, can be obtained from doctors, including primary care physicians, who have undergone training and received federal approval. To find a doctor who prescribes buprenorphine, go to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website at and click on the Find Help & TreatmentŽ link from the home page. You can search by state and ZIP code. Though you can receive care from your primary care physician, Gitlow recommends that you also consult with an addiction specialist. A er you start the medication ... Once patients start one of the medications, its not clear how long they should stay on „ a question that deserves further research, Rawson says. The longer people stay on treatment, the lower the death rate is and the more theyre able to function,Ž he says. Often patients face pressure from family members, who badger them to get off the medications even though it would be better for them to stay on them, Kan says. We dont say to patients who suffer from diabetes ƒ Have you changed your diet enough so you can get off insulin?Ž he says.

Rather than just buying a home, he was laying the foundation for providing us another revenue stream. Abraham had three (land, animals, water) revenue streams and we had just heard a great sermon on how this was a biblical example of how to best take care of your finances. Multiple revenue streams allow you to diversify ... (theres a whole lot of financial talk that goes here but all I heard was blah blah blah, less stress). Less stress is a big draw for me because in case one of us loses a job, there would be another source of revenue coming into the household. Or as my granny used to say, not putting all your eggs in the same basket. We have spent the last 20 years traveling with our work, and so the idea of the next house comes more often that I would like to admit. We have learned though that sitting around waiting on the right idea to present itself ... well life doesnt work that way. Nothing just drops into your lap out of the blue. We were literally inches away from signing an offer on a new house when the Lord set the idea of another income stream in front of us. And because his timing is perfect, wouldnt you know that there were several twin homes on the market. We prayed over the idea and then we went to look at the houses. They share a wall but otherwise are two separate houses. I wanted so badly to hate this idea. Ive lived in townhomes over the years„ military housing, civilian housing „ and I didnt want to have to hear my neighbors. I didnt want to hear them through my walls: screaming at kids, blaring music that makes me want to pull my face off my head, or worse. The two houses face different directions, and we werent losing square feet, there was nice yard space for the dogs, plenty of room for us to stretch out and just live... almost rent free. See the price on the twin homes was the same as for a single-family home. God was showing us a way to literally live in our own home for the cost of the utilities (once we rented out the other home). Im going to say that again because its just that important: we could almost live mortgage and rent free! Still, I was hesitant, because Im always looking for that next forever home, so I asked God to change my heart. Simple as that.
