[SPECIAL TO WCN/HCT] Staff ReportHOLMES COUNTY „ A rabies alert was issued Monday after two raccoons tested positive for the virus.The Florida Department of Health in Holmes County issued the rabies alert for Bonifay and Westville. The rabies alert is for the area of extreme northwest Holmes County and the area of Griffen Dr. and Decon Road on the southwest side of Bonifay.The recent rabies alert will remain in effect for 60 days.Rabies alert issued for Bonifay and WestvilleBy Andrew TaylorThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ A bit-terly divided House panel last Wednesday approved new work and job training require-ments for food stamps as part of a five-year renewal of fed-eral farm and nutrition policy.The GOP-run Agriculture Committee approved the measure strictly along party lines after a contentious, five-hour hearing in which Democrats blasted the legisla-tion, charging it would toss up to 2 million people off of food stamps and warning that it will never pass Congress.Outside the contentious changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, however, are topics more expected under the moniker Farm Bill.ŽU.S. Rep. Neal Dunn of Panama City, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, said he made sure North Floridas farmers were taken care of in this cycles bills.Farming is a risky business,Ž Dunn said in a phone interview Thursday. Every season, their livelihood is on the line.ŽAmong his contributions is the incorporation of Dunns Growing American Food Exports Act, which Dunn introduced in March. The bill seeks to standardize agricul-tural exports that are produced with or contain products of genetic engineering „ which includes about one-third of all U.S. ag exports.Those products face significant regulatory barri-ers in overseas markets and currently there is no single international standard-set-ting body to help normalize trade,Ž Dunn said in a March press release. The Exports Act undoes those barriers to promote policies friendlyŽ to trade and innovation.In North Florida, agricul-ture is vital to the economy, and our farmers are using new technologies to grow food that is more resistant to pests and disease, require less water, and cost families less at the grocery store. Unfortunately, government regulations abroad often lag behind innovation on American farms, which prevents local farmers from selling their abundance to Americas trading partners,Ž Dunn said in March. Remov-ing these trade barriers and strengthening relations with our global partners will level the playing field for North Floridas agricultural prod-ucts. This legislation is a step in the right direction for improv-ing our export economy and supporting innovation in the agricultural industry.ŽThe hard-fought food stamp provisions would tighten existing work requirements and expand funding for state training programs, though not by enough to cover everybody subject to the new work and training requirements.Agriculture panel chair Michael Conaway said the provisions would offer food stamp beneficiaries the hope of a job and a skill and a better future for themselves and their families.ŽAt issue is SNAP, which provides food aid for more than 40 million people, with benefits averaging about $450 a month for a family of four.Farm bill moves to curb food stamps, renew subsidiesDunn: Work requirements for SNAP not onerousDunn See KEOWN, A2 See RABIES, A2 See BILL, A5By Jacqueline BostickTimes-Advertiser 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY „ As he lost his health while fighting against cancer four years ago, Clint Erickson gained a renewed sense of his world and what it means to be thankful.A lot of it is with my faith,Ž said Erickson, whose a commissioner on the Holmes County Board of Commissioners. After going through this, it really changes your perspective of life you dont take things for granted as much as you used to.ŽHe added: The bigger issues are not as big as they used to be; our problems arent really big problems.ŽHe battled Stage 3 lym-phoma cancer in 2014 and won the fight.Support from his wife of soon to be 20 years renewed his faith in Gods will to see that he live and fight through nine long months of four-hour chemother-apy treatments every other week, he said. In remission and during his six-month check-ups he often reflects on how valuable support is when waging the all-or-nothing fight against cancer.And his personal journey is one reason he supports Relay for Life. The Holmes County Board of Commis-sioners made a proclamation at a recent meeting to show support of the initiative.The Relay for Life offers a lot of good things and the need for the Relay for Life what they do and how they support getting rid of cancer and finding a way to fight it on a scientific level is something Holmes County needs,Ž Erickson said.Over the years, according to organizers, the American Cancer Society initiative for cancer research and patient support has dwindled in the county.

It's a way to recognize those that have lost their fight, are fighting and continue to fight."Bush isn't a survivor. She represents the millions of people who, much like the wife of Commissioner Erickson, uses her life to advance the cause and save lives by supporting survivors. However, the sting of cancer isn't too far away."I buried three to cancer in three years," she said, listing her mother-in-law, brother-in-law and niece who died in the fight. Had the resources from research been available when her niece passed away several years ago, Bush believes she would be alive today."My response to those people who have said (ACS) 'didn't help my family member,' I say I can't do anything about that and I'm sorry that that is behind us, but let us see what we can do now," Bush said. "And I challenge them to see if their family member is surviving see who funded the research for the medication that your family member took that spared their life.""I relay for the mil-lions," she added. "I can't help a single family so much, but every penny that I have been able to raise and earn might be a break through for a childhood cancer that will touch millions of children."Washington and Holmes counties goal is to raise $71,000. As of Tuesday, $46,000. Last year the combined group raised $64,000, about $2,000 shy of its goal.Opportunities to give to the cause are ongoing. See this list to find out how you can get involved.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett South Korean leaders have indicated they want to discuss with their communist counterparts a formal peace treaty to the war that ended in a stalemate 65 years ago. By some estimates nearly 3 million soldiers and civilians were killed in Korea before a truce was engineered in July 1953. The pact stopped the fighting but didnt necessarily translate to peace. Violent, low-grade hostilities over the subsequent years robbed dozens and dozens of soldiers and civilians of their lives. Those deaths would include two American Army officers killed by Northern troops in August 1976. Lets hope the respective leaders „ South Koreas President Moon Jae-in and North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un „ are able to stride closer toward a formal peace treaty when they meet. Some issues must be cleared up first. South Korea was not a signatory to the truce. So, other combatants „ primarily the U.S. and China „ must assent before it could take effect. Some sticky points that need resolution include the presence of 28,000 U.S. troops in South Korea and North Koreas nuclear weapons program. But as post-Cold War history has taught us, the iron grip of communist leaders begins to weaken once these nations are exposed to the wider world. We can only hope that an official declaration of peace on the Korean Peninsula will hasten the arrival of that moment. That said, we see one other reason why this treaty is important. Since the end of World War II, U.S. troops have been involved in multiple wars and police actionsŽ of various lengths and intensity. But Korea always seems less appreciated, or at least not as recognized, as the others. In just three years nearly 34,000 American soldiers died in combat in Korea, while another 103,000 were wounded. The death toll there was more than half that of Vietnam, even though Vietnam lasted three times as long. Thus, while appreciating the valor of all our fighting men and women in the years since, the sacrifice of American troops in Korea stands out. Thats because their achievement held. South Korea has blossomed into a peaceful, prosperous powerhouse, despite the intimidating presence of its northern neighbor, because we fought with and later protected its people. If this proposed peace treaty becomes more of a reality, President Donald Trump, who has given the upcoming talks his blessing,Ž should make a point of praising both sides. But Trump also must publicly express his solemn gratitude to the U.S. soldiers who defended South Korea, whether they died in action there, or live among us today. Historians can debate whether presidents Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower faltered by not utterly defeating North Korea. But without a doubt the heroic fighting of our troops in Korea, and their continued presence there has made a lasting difference in the lives of both South Koreans and their fellow Americans. This guest editorial was originally published in the Lakeland Ledger, a sister newspaper of the within Gatehouse Media.Hoping for a real peace deal in KoreaIn 1951 when my husband Jack came back to Holmes County as an Agriculture Teacher at Bethlehem High School after serving in WWII, graduating from The University of Florida, and working in Washington County for six months, we rented an apartment in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Turlus Creel. I had known Mrs. Creel (Stella) all my life as my aunt and uncle, Lelia and Edward Harris had rented the garage apartment next door years earlier. When I was about two years old I lived with them there. In addition, she attended Bethel Primitive Baptist Church where my family attended and where many of her relatives, the Yates, were buried. Mr. Creel was retired from the time I knew him, but he had worked as a builder and as a timber cruiser, among other occupations. I remember hearing him say that Hoover DaysŽ as many people called the Great Depression were nothing compared to the hard times he experienced as a boy growing up during the administration of Grover Cleveland. (1885-89 and 1893-97.) In the 1940s and 1950's through retired, Mr. Creel made trips to Foley, Alabama and purchased azaleas and camellias for resale in Bonifay. He also grew plants from cuttings which he propagated and grew in rows in the backyard of their home on Oklahoma St. just north of the old jail where the new bank now sits. Bonifay and surrounding area can give credit to Mr. T.M. Creel and Mr. Roy Dowling for the beautiful show that we enjoy in the spring when the azaleas are in bloom. A quiet man, Mr. Creel loved his family and loved a good joke. He would tell about the time the late James Edward McFatter, Mrs Videl Swindles son and some of the neighborhood boys would knock on the door and run and hide. One night they knocked on the front door, hid behind the big oaks and waited. No response. They waited some more and then went to the side door. This time they hid under the porch. In a few minutes Mr. Creel opened the door and called, Stella, hand me my gun. There are some dogs up under this porch.Ž Then he fired the shotgun into the air. James Edward told that they had skinned knees, bumped and banged heads and scratches crawling over plumbing pipes and junk crawling the long way out from under that porch. Mr. Creel also loved to fish and he designed a one-man boat which was made in two halves that would nest and fit into the trunk of his wifes car. (He didnt drive.) It could be carried by one man. When the fishing destination was reached, the boat was latched together by two gate hinges. A lot of people gave Uncle Jim Brock credit for the boats design, but we learned the truth from Turl Creel. Jim borrowedŽ Mr. Creels one man boat and never returned it. After a reasonable amount of time, Mr. Creel just built himself another one. Jack copied the design and is the owner of the only one of its kind today. Mrs. Stella Yates Creel was one of the original Steel Magnolias. She was intelligent, cheerful, always available to help a friend or neighbor. She loved children and treated them as people. She could enjoy a conversation with a child as well as with an adult. Her grandchildren were often in her home along with the neighbors Judge and Ruth Helms children. Shed sit for hours and let Barbara Kelly and Alice Helms fix her hair. She was quick to see a need and quietly supply it whether it be a dish of food for a bereaved or needy family or where sickness brought needs. She fed many families during the flu epidemic of 1918 and miraculously she nor her family was ever taken sick. After we moved out to the Tison property, Creel was always available when there were peas to shell or corn to fix for the freezer. Many afternoons when the weather was nice a group of ladies would sit out on the Creels front lawn or on the screen porch and have conversations. I learned a lot about who was who and what was what from the group including Mrs. Vella Harrell, Mrs. Creels sister, Mrs. H.B. Douglass, Mrs. Ada Brett, Mrs. Daisy Young, Mrs. Rosa Young whose husband Tom Young had died during the flu epidemic, and Mrs. Ola Driver the widow of a former sheriff Bartow Driver. Sometimes Mrs. Doctor Vara joined them and when school was out, Mrs. Drane Kates. The group might vary from time to time, but interesting conversations always took place. That is where I got a lot of my history. Though none of the Creel family live in Bonifay today they left an indelible mark on this community. HAPPY CORNERRemembering Mr. and Mrs. Turlus Creel Hazel TisonAccording to NBC News, the majority of the Washington, D.C. council as well as the mayor and the Washington PostŽ are pushing a bill that would make the District of Columbia the first place in the nation to allow people as young as 16 to vote in federal elections (including presidential races). A growing number of cities and states are considering their own ways to expand civic engagementŽ to younger people. Im not one of those Children should be seen and not heardŽ curmudgeons. Many 16-yearolds have extensive life experience supporting their families, and I know some high school students whose voting judgment I would trust implicitly; but I still have mixed emotions about upending the status quo. I guess Im nostalgic for slogans such as Remember the Alamo,Ž Loose lips sink shipsŽ and Dont tread on me.Ž Its just not the same to rally around Lets swap one arbitrary age for another arbitrary age! And dont dump that tea in the harbor, dude! Itll stress the polar bears and stuff.Ž Agreed, members of the Baby Boom generation (and surrounding generations) have left the world in quite a mess. We seem to think that money, status and violence are the answer to everything. Were so dementia-adjacent that we cant absorb the self-evident truth that running away with your 45-year-old drivers ed teacher is the answer to everything!!! Should arms negotiators have to worry about polling results from naeve individuals who approach nuclear war with the sage attitude, You cant get irradiated if its your first time. Or maybe its You cant get irradiated if youre standing upŽ? Undoubtedly, dropping the voting age by two years would bring in some new blood and encourage thinking outside the box. The new voting bloc might find the key to ending world hunger, the key to solving economic inequality, the key to achieving racial harmony. Unfortunately, right now theyre a little preoccupied trying to find the key to mom and dads liquor cabinet... What vast governmental changes would be wrought by an influx of younger voters? Forget tearing down statues; they would probably tear down the Library of Congress. (It reeks of Permanent Record!Ž) The Centers for Disease Control would put those wasted West Nile Virus dollars to work eradicating the zit plague. The Environmental Protection Agency would be assigned tasks such as Please, do something about my moms new boyfriends aftershave.Ž Lady Justice would remain blindfolded, but dropping her gown would make for some wicked awesome sexting! Opponents of the lowered voting age fear a slippery slope of ever-younger voters. Yeah, do we want a campaign season where candidates furtively pass out folded notes that ask, Do you like me? Mark yes or noŽ? I was not reassured by the high school junior who promised me that 16 was as low as it would go. (My 14-year-old brothers social engagement will remain having his face shoved into my armpit!Ž) One thing propelling the rethinking of age restrictions is the eloquence and passion shown by young activists in recent months. A message of My adolescent brain may not be fully formed, but my opinions sure are!Ž has a lot of politicians and businessmen shaking in their boots. But older organizers comfort themselves with the thought, Im glad they hate guns. Theyd SHOOT us if they ever figured out how were manipulating them!ŽShould we lower the voting age to 16? Danny Tyree


** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, April 25, 2018 A5The food stamp cuts are part of a workforce developmentŽ agenda promised by GOP leaders such as Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., though other elements of the agenda have been slow to develop.The timing is just per-fect, given the fact that we have more than five million jobs that are open and available,Ž said Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., who said the GOP provisions would cement a pathway to opportunityŽ for the poor and give them better access to skills-based education.Ž But Democrats said the provisions would drive up to two million people off of the program, force food stamp recipients to keep up with extensive record keeping rules, and create bulky state bureau-cracies to keep track of it all „ while not providing enough money to provide job training to all those who would require it. This legislation would create giant, untested bureaucracies at the state level. It cuts more than $9 billion in benefits and rolls those savings into state slush funds where they can use the money to operate other aspects of SNAP,Ž said Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, top Democrat on the panel. Let me be clear: this bill, as currently writ-ten, kicks people off the SNAP program.ŽCurrently, adults 18-59 are required to work part-time or agree to accept a job if theyre offered one. Stricter rules apply to able-bodied adults without dependents between the ages of 18 and 49, who are subject to a three-month limit of benefits unless they meet a work requirement of 80 hours per month.Under the new bill, that requirement would be expanded to apply to all work-capable adults, mandating that they either work or participate in work training for 20 hours per week with the exception of seniors, pregnant women, caretakers of children under the age of six, or people with disabilities.Dunn said the work requirements are not onerousŽ and that opponents either misunderstand or mischaracterize them. In a statement his office sent Wednesday, Dunn called Democrats response to the issue disappointing.ŽIn addition to food stamps, the measure would renew farm safety-net programs such as subsidies for crop insurance, farm credit, and land conservation. Those subsidies for farm country tradition-ally form the backbone of support for the measure among Republicans, while urban Democrats support food aid for the poor.The legislation has traditionally been bipartisan, blending support from urban Democrats supporting nutrition programs with farm state lawmakers supporting farm programs.The measure mostly tinkers with those pro-grams, adding provisions aimed at helping rural America obtain highspeed internet access, assist beginning farmers, and ease regulations on producers.Holmes County farmer Jeremy Rolling, who also is president of the Holmes County Farm Bureau, said hes happy with the new bill, which mirrors the 2014 Farm Bill. If we dont have any farms, we dont have any food,Ž Rolling said.In particular, he said previous peanut provisions were protected, such as those providing loss insurance. He called Dunn an advocated for farmers in the Panhandle, where among other crops, 90,000 acres of cotton are grown from Jackson to Escambia County.In 2012, the last year for which USDA Ag Census data is available, Jackson County topped Panhandle counties with a $93 million value in its agricultural products. Elsewhere in the Panhan-dle, exports that year were worth $29 million each in Holmes and Walton counties, $20 million in Calhoun, $14 million in Washington and $3 mil-lion in Bay.When you step away from the social nutrition policy much of this is a refinement of the 2014 farm bill. So were not reinventing the wheel. That makes it dramatically simpler,Ž said Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., a former chairman of the committee. Most folks are generally satisfied with the fundamentals of the farm safety net.ŽThat satisfaction has helped fuel speculation that this years renewal of food and farm programs will fail because just a short-term renewal of current policies would satisfy many lawmakers. The Senate is taking a more traditional biparti-san approach thats sure to avoid big changes to food stamps.The House measure also would cut funding for land conservation programs long championed by Democrats, prompting criticism from environmental groups. At the same time, it con-tains a proposal backed by pesticide manufacturers such as the Dow Chemical Company that would streamline the process for approving pesticides by allowing the Environ-mental Protection Agency to skip reviews required under the Endangered Species Act.The panel adopted by voice vote a proposal by Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., to prohibit the slaughter, trade or import or export of dogs and cats for human consumption in the United States.The News Heralds Collin Breaux contributed to this report.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, April 25, 2018 A9 NATION & WORLDBy Mark ShermanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosen-stein laid aside the stress of one part of his job Monday to put himself in a different kind of pressure cooker: an argument at the Supreme Court.Dressed in a traditional morning coat and striped pants, with the added flash of a pair of presidential cuff-links, Rosenstein represented the Trump administration in a case about a prison sen-tence for a convicted drug dealer at a rare afternoon session of the court.Not bad,Ž he said before the arguments, showing the cufflinks briefly to friends who had come to watch him argue. The cufflinks were sent last week by White House counsel Don McGahn, a Justice Department spokes-woman said.For a little while, Rosenstein was able to cast off the worries of overseeing the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the occasional public musings from President Donald Trump about whether to fire him. The plan for Rosenstein to appear before the justices has been in the works for months.The solicitor generals office argues almost every Supreme Court case in which the government is involved. But it will occasionally cede its place to the attorney general or the second in command. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has not argued a case, nor did the two attor-neys general under President Barack Obama: Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. Previous attorneys general who have argued at the court include Robert F. Kennedy, Janet Reno and Michael Mukasey.Just before the justices returned to the bench from lunch, Rosenstein wiped his face with a handkerchief and steeled himself for the courts inevitable grilling. It was fairly mild, at least com-pared to the heat hes gotten on social media, including from the president.Almost halfway through the session, it was Rosen-steins turn.General Rosenstein?Ž Chief Justice John Roberts said, inviting Rosenstein to defend the modified sentence a judge imposed in the case of little consequence from New Mexico. At issue was a difference of six months „ 9 years or nine years „ between the judges sentence and what the defendant wanted. The issue is how much explanation a judge must give when a sentence is modified.He appeared comfortable answering a steady stream of questions from seven justices over nearly 30 minutes. Jus-tice Clarence Thomas almost never asks one and didnt Monday, and Justice Neil Gorsuch is not taking part in the case, probably because he was involved in an earlier phase of the case when he served as an appellate judge.What if a judge merely checked a box in 600 resen-tencing proceedings and said no more? Roberts asked.In no case is the court merely checking the box,Ž Rosenstein said, challenging the premise of Roberts question.Justice Sonia Sotomayor wondered what should happen if a judge believed that African-Americans should be punished more severely for crimes. The defendant in this case is Hispanic. How are we to determine that reason didnt play a part in this?Ž Sotomayor asked.Courts presume that district courts know the law and apply it faithfully,Ž Rosenstein replied.After the arguments, Rosenstein, his wife and two daughters posed for photos on the front steps of the court beneath the phrase Equal Justice Under LawŽ etched into the pediment. They strode across the plaza and onto the sidewalk.Rosenstein ignored questions from reporters about special counsel Robert Muel-lers investigation and how he enjoyed himself inside.The whole family climbed into a waiting SUV. Rosensteins regular job awaited him.Rosenstein puts aside probe to argueDeputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and his family depart the Supreme Court on Monday in Washington after arguing his “ rst case before the court. He was defending the governments position in a case involving the prison sentence for a convicted drug deale r. [ALEX BRANDON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

The minislump continues DENNY HAMLIN His most recent plate race was interesting KURT BUSCH Count him among this weeks favorites JIMMIE JOHNSON Welcome back to our top-10, Jimbo The Daytona Beach News-Journals Godwin Kelly & Ken Willis have covered NASCAR for nearly 60 years combined. godwin.kelly@ ken.willis@news-jrnl.comMOTOR MOUTHS PODCASTIts Talladega week, so well gripe about plate-racin, as usual. Tune in online at daytonamotormouths y Best guess at a surprise Talladega winner? GODSPEAK: Im looking hard at Bubba Wallace. It seems he is a natural at restrictor-plate racing. KENS CALL: Im gonna go with Ryan Newman, though Im pulling for AJ Allmendinger. OK, maybe Dave Ragan. Good Lord, who knows ƒCombined series wins in NASCAR, where does Kyle Busch end up? GODSPEAK: Lets see, 10 more years, “ ve wins a season, give or take, so maybe 275-ish. KENS CALL: Hell obviously blow by 200, and the big question is whether he can reach 300. Ill go with 252. How bout that? CLINT BOWYER VS. WILLIAM BYRON: Bowyer was not happy when Byron could not get up to speed on a restart and Bowyer squished the nose of his No. 14 Ford into Byrons No. 24 Chevy. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Really, this isnt bad. Thought for sure there would be a long list to work from after Richmond. Said Bowyer, Boy, how did this night go to ruin so fast?Ž WINNER: Brad Keselowski REST OF TOP 5: Jamie McMurray, Joey Logano, Denny Hamlin, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. FIRST ONE OUT: Kyle Busch DARK HORSE: Aric Almirola DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Keselowski scores his sixth career Talladega victory with help from a pack of fast Fords.How can Kyle Busch become a fan favorite?It all comes down to your de“ nition. For the guys who win a lot and display occasional attitude,Ž the best they can hope for is a 50-50 split in the grandstands. Dale Earnhardt was the epitome of that, with each half of that equation engaged deeply and passionately in their up-or-down view. Darrell Waltrip and Tony Stewart had that, to a lesser degree. Kyle isnt near the 50-percent approval, but he may be slowly gaining. Some guys are universally popular, it seems, but they don't win like Kyle. Will he get there?Probably not. It helps if you have the lookŽ to match the tude, and Kyle doesnt have the menacing, macho chops for the role. Also, its usually only a matter of time before things go wrong with the car and he complains in a way that many label as whining.Ž Theres a “ ne line between grumblin and whinin, and Kyle often seems on the wrong side of that line.„ Ken Willis, ken.willis @news-jrnl.com1.

Chase watchHistory has a way of repeating itself, so it comes as no surprise that Chase Elliott has duplicated a stat established by his father, Bill Elliott. Father and son now have eight second-place “ nishes before their “ rst Cup Series victory. Bill got his “ rst win in the last race of the 1983 season at Riverside International Raceway. Chase, 22, tied his dad at Richmond Saturday night and hopes that “ rst win is near.2. Four-peat?Kyle Busch has scored three consecutive Cup Series victories, replicating Kevin Harvicks three-ina-row earlier this season. Busch concedes trying to extend that winning streak to four on Sunday will be nearly impossible. We go to Talladega,Ž he said. I think its easier to win the Powerball than win at Talladega. Well give it a go anyway, see what we get.Ž His only Dega win was 10 years ago.3. Underdog droolThe majority of Cup Series race drivers are underdogs because only a few get the very best equipment, so pardon the midpack guys for getting a little excited about Talladega, where the upset is still alive and well. The last driver to score an unexpected Dega victory was David Ragan in 2013. Ragans race team has two wins in 832 starts. Yeah, these wins are few and far between,Ž Ragan said.„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.comChase Elliott hopes to see his streak of second-place “ nishes in his rearview mirror very soon. [AP/MATT SLOCUM] 1. Busch-whackedKyle Busch started last week by winning Bristol (Monday) and making up with Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Tuesday), and ended by winning Richmond (Saturday). The end result? More cheers than jeers Saturday for the Candyman,Ž who went into the grandstands and high-“ ved a few fans.2. For the recordBusch now has 46 Cup Series wins and is tied for 15th all-time with Buck Baker. At almost 33 years old, he is the “ fth-youngest driver to reach 46 wins. Busch has 187 NASCAR national series wins (Cup, X“ nity, trucks) and is chasing Richard Pettys 200-win mark.3. Racin at RichmondClint Bowyer explains the closing laps of Richmond racing: Its just beating and banging and everybody divebombing on the bottom.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, April 25, 2018 A13 JOBSBy ZipRecruiter.comDoing your best to stand out during the application process is recommended regardless of what sort of position youre applying for. But, it becomes straight up necessary when youre tossing your hat into the ring for an administrative assistant job. How can you manage to separate yourself from the pack and leave your mark? 1. Tailor your resume Much like any other job, admin positions can vary greatly from company to company, with different responsibilities, different tools and software, different expectations. This is why you must tailor your resume for every job you apply to. Review that specific description, pull out key words and skills that crop up again and again, then work to make yourself seem as relevant as possible. 2. Dont forget about so skills Oftentimes, advice will warn you to skip the soft skills on your resume in favor of squeezing in a few more details or statistics about your previous performance. But, youll want to take that warning with a grain of salt when applying for admin positions. From organizational skills and effective communication to team-building and collaboration, there are tons of soft skills that are undoubtedly required to be a successful admin. So, dont skip over all of them in favor of briefly mentioning the three credits of Spanish you took in college. Soft skills can carry a lot of weight „ as long as you have some specific examples to back them up. 3. Lets talk about tech One thing is for sure: Youre going to need to be pretty adaptable with technology when youre sitting in an admins seat. Typically, administrative assistants are tasked with test-driving new tools or identifying the best software fit for a company. In some offices (particularly smaller ones), many admins also find themselves filling the shoes of an entire IT department. Being somewhat techsavvy is undeniably necessary. So, dont forget to play this attribute up when applying. Make sure your resume includes any specific platforms and programs you consider yourself to be proficient with. Knowing they wont need to train you on how to use a basic aspect of their day-today business can sometimes make all the difference for a companys hiring decisions. 4. Gather amazing references References tend to be one of those after-thoughts of the job-hunt process. However, theyre something you need to have sorted out early on. That way, you wont be in a bind when a hiring manager suddenly requests your list of contacts. Not being in a time crunch also gives you adequate space to find the references who will truly make a difference for you, instead of just the ones who were able to give immediate approval. when applying for administrative assistant jobs Stand out FREEPIKBy Diane M.

** B2 Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser By Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks couldnt hang on to an early gain and finished mostly lower Monday as technology companies slipped. Bond prices con-tinue to fall and the yield on the 10-year Treasury note drew closer to 3 per-cent, a milestone it hasnt reached since January 2014.Investors once again focused on corporate deals Monday as utility company Vectren agreed to be bought by Center-Point Energy for $6 billion, while the CEO of Sears called for the company to sell more assets and health care products company Henry Schein said it will split off its animal health unit. Aluminum producers tumbled after the Treasury Department moved to ease sanctions against Russian aluminum company Rusal.Stocks have faded over the last few days as bond yields continued to climb. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note continued to trade at four-year highs, rising to 2.98 percent from 2.96 percent. Bond yields have climbed this year as investors are starting to see signs that inflation is picking up and the Federal Reserve continues to raise interest rates. The 10-year yield stood at 2.43 percent at the end of 2017.Since the global financial crisis in 2008-09, a combination of low infla-tion expectations and a bond-buying program by the Federal Reserve have helped keep bond yields low. That pushed stocks higher by making bonds less appealing by comparison. With the Fed no longer buying bonds and investors expecting greater inflation, analysts say higher yields could make bonds more attractive.Duane McAllister, senior portfolio manager for Baird Advisors, said he doesnt think rising yields are a problem for the stock market. He said they are an opportunity for investors to diversify their hold-ings at a time of increased market volatility.Three percent is an important milestone on the continued trend toward higher interest rates,Ž he said. It shouldnt lead anyone, whether youre an individual investor or an institutional investor, to run for the hills.Ž The S&P 500 index rose 0.15 points to 2,670.29. It rose as much as 12 points before midday. Stocks wobble, bond yields rise By Erika KinetzThe Associated PressSHANGHAI „ It was looking like a banner year for business in China. The U.S. clothing company was expecting a 20 percent jump in online sales on Alibabas Tmall, thanks to the e-commerce giants massive reach.But executives soon learned that what Alib-aba gives, it can also take away.The company refused to sign an exclusive con-tract with Alibaba, and instead participated in a big sale promotion with its archrival, Inc. Tmall punished them by taking steps to cut traffic to their storefront, two executives told The Associated Press. They said advertising banners vanished from promi-nent spots in Tmall sales showrooms, the company was blocked from special sales and products stopped appearing in top search results.The well-known American brand saw its Tmall sales plummet 10 to 20 percent for the year.Based on our sales record, we should have been in a prominent position, but we were at the bottom of the page,Ž said the brands e-commerce director, who spoke only on condition of anonymity for fear of further retaliation. Thats a clear manipulation of traffic. Thats a clear punishment.ŽAs the Trump administration pushes China to play by fair trade rules, companies are caught in a quieter but no less crucial struggle for fair access to a $610 billion online marketplace, an AP investigation has found.Executives from five major consumer brands told the AP that after they refused to enter exclusive partnerships with Alib-aba, traffic to their Tmall storefronts fell, hurting sales. Three are American companies with billions in annual sales that rely on China for growth.In a statement, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. said pursuing exclusive deals is a common industry practice and called the charges of coercion completely false.ŽAlibaba and Tmall conduct business in full compliance with Chinese laws,Ž Alibaba said. Like many e-commerce plat-forms, we have exclusive partnerships with some of the merchants on Tmall. The merchant decides to choose such an arrangement because of the attractive services and value Tmall brings to them.ŽImagine a company twice as profitable as Amazon that each year serves more people than live in all of North America. Thats Ali-baba. It claims to be the marketplace for nearly $550 billion a year in sales „ more than is sold online in the entire U.S. economy.The trials of the affected companies offer a rare window onto a bruising business culture forged in China that could spread as Alibaba takes its aggressive, innova-tive and hugely profitable model of e-commerce global. To the extent that their products are manu-factured in the United States „ and some are „ constricting sales in Chinas critical growth market can also deepen the imbalance of trade between China and the U.S., a gap that is a top concern for the Trump administration.The competition between Alibaba and is so infamous in China „ and so dirty „ its been dubbed the great cat-and-dog war,Ž after Tmalls black-cat mascot ands white dog.The executives spoke to the AP only on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals, but their concerns were echoed by a U.S. industry group, brand consultants and policy makers in China and itself.In a speech about cyberspace last week, Chinese president Xi Jinping said ensuring free and fair competition online was a regulatory priority, citing the need to cultivate a fair market environment, strengthen intellectual property protection, and oppose monopoly and unfair competition,Ž state media reported.In its months-long investigation, the AP interviewed more than 30 people and reviewed two contracts from Alibaba that contained previously unreported exclusivity clauses. The AP found that the platforms that control access to Chinese consumers online wield such enormous power that even multibillion-dollar foreign companies can have trouble fighting back.We urge the authori-ties to quickly investigate and take steps to ensure such practices are elimi-nated from the growing Chinese marketplace,Ž said Stephen Lamar, executive vice president of the American Apparel & Footwear Association, adding that members of his industry group had complained about unfair competitive practices by Alibaba.

** B4 Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser FAITHTo paraphrase Erma Bombeck, think of all the women on the Titanic, who, on that fateful night, said no to dessert. OK, so we may not be on the Titanic. But sometimes life can make us feel like we are sinking, whether its under the weight of stress, work demands, family issues, medical problems or difficult people. Its easy in these times of crisis to forget dessert. To put it another way, its easy to postpone joy. We often think: Ill get to it. Ill do it later. Ill be happy when X, Y or Z happens.Ž But as we defer happiness, time keeps ticking. Suddenly, we realize that years we can never get back have passed by while we were waiting for the right time. None of us have the luxury of putting off anything, especially joy! As the book of Proverbs tells us, Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.Ž Lets take a moment to consider three strategies that can help us embrace rather than postpone joy. Since memory is not my forte, Ill frame them as an acronym: N-O-W.N: Never ignore an opportunity to laugh! Its the most important healing tool we have. Sadly, thanks to low self-esteem or high self-doubt, some of us dont believe we deserve to be happy. So, we bury our smiles and delay our joy. Newsflash: We deserve joy! We deserve to be happy. As Jesus taught, I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!Ž (John 15:11). We deserve happiness. And not only do we deserve it, when we claim our joy, we help others claim theirs too. As Louis Armstrong sang: When you smilin, when you smilinThe whole world smiles with you. Yes, when you laughin oh when you laughinThe sun comes shinin through.Ž O: Observe. Many times, we opt for anger or resentment instead of joy. But if we take a moment to observe the situation were in a little closer, we may choose differently. The next time someone says something that makes you mad, ask yourself whether it was out of malice or ignorance? If it was malice, then walk away and protect your joy. If it was simple ignorance, then laugh at the mistake, correct the person if necessary, and go on your way. Either way, you will have chosen joy. W: Wallow in gratitude. No matter where we find ourselves in life, there are things for which we should be grateful, even if its just opening our eyes in the morning. One of the best ways to remember our blessings is to start our day with a prayer of gratitude. The actor Denzel Washington once suggested a great way to ensure that prayer happens. He explained that you should put your shoes way under the bed at night because then, youve got to get down on your knees each morning to find them. Years ago, a woman in our congregation adopted a dog from the local shelter. It was a cute collie/retriever mix that was within days of being euthanized. After the paperwork was done, she took him home and immediately named him Justin,Ž for just-in-time. Just-ins story is our story, too. Maybe you feel stuck in a dead-end job. Maybe youve let your relationship fizzle out. Maybe you feel your dreams have faded or your sense of joy has disappeared. Many of us are walking this earth physically alive but dead of spirit, operating at the level of our social security number „ existing, rather than living. But time is ticking ... as the words from the Jewish Talmud warn, when we are called to our maker, we will each be held responsible for all the opportunities for joy that we ignored.Ž The time to be happy is now. The time to make positive changes for a better life is now. Grab lifes desserts! Laugh! And wallow in your opportunities for joy ... before its too late.Dont postpone joyIf you would like to include an event in this list, email information to:news@chipleypaper. com Red Hill Methodist to host mission supperBONIFAY … Red Hill United Methodist Church will host a mission supper Friday, April 27.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, April 25, 2018 B7 By Tim CarmanThe Washington PostTheyre not Thin Mints. Theyre not even cookies. But the forthcoming Thin Mints Chickpea Snacks apparently taste so much like the real thing the Girl Scouts of the USA have officially blessed the little chocolate-dipped nuggets from Biena Snacks. The product officially debuts in June at Whole Foods, which will exclusively sell the snacks for three months before they roll out to other retailers in September. Unlike Girl Scout cookies, these chocolate chickpea poppers will be available year-round, which may inspire you to stop hoarding Thin Mints in the freezer. Maybe? Poorvi Patodia, founder and chief executive of the Boston-based Biena, said Thin Mints Chickpea Snacks were something of a happy accident. After introducing a line of chocolate-covered, sea-salt chickpeas last summer, Biena kept experimenting with other flavors. One of the companys recipe developers, Patodia said, created a peppermint-y version of the snack. People started to make the comment that these taste a whole lot like Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies,Ž Patodia told The Post. From there, I thought, I wonder if the Girl Scouts would actually partner with us?Ž Turns out, they would. The Girl Scouts officially licensed the Thin Mints brand name to Biena. Theres a financial componentŽ to the deal, Patodia said, but the CEO could not disclose the terms. Remuneration aside, the deal between the Girl Scouts and Biena is interesting: The scouting group is not sharing a recipe, just a name. Biena has developed a snack separate from traditional Thin Mints. The company prides itself on healthy snacks with no artificial ingredients or flavors. Patodia said the Thin Mints Chickpea Snacks are made with only six ingredients, including Fair Trade dark chocolate and cane sugar. Theyre gluten-free, too. Girl Scouts Thin Mints are produced in season by two different bakeries: ABC Bakers in Richmond, Virginia, and Little Brownie Bakers in Louisville, Kentucky. The bakeries have slightly different recipes for Thin Mints, both of which have more than 10 ingredients, including artificial flavors or colors. One of the value propositions of the brand is that we use very clean and simple and recognizable ingredients,Ž Patodia said. Then again, Thin Mints, the actual cookie, has never been a stagnant product, in name or recipe. According to a Time magazine article, the cookie was introduced in 1939 as Cooky-Mints.Ž At one point, there were 29 different licensed bakers producing the cookie. In 2015, Thin Mints apparently went vegan. (A review of the current ingredient list would appear to confirm this.) Are you out of Thin Mints? A chickpea version that tastes like the real thingBy Bonnie S. BenwickThe Washington PostPotatoes and onion and eggs „ theres a trio that promises good eating and many possibilities. The classic tortilla Espanola is a prime example, and some of my favorite skillet recipes go heavy on the potato and onion, which makes the cooked wedges meaty and especially easy to cut and serve at any temperature. Some of those tortillas can take up to an hour, which wouldnt be very Dinner in Minutes friendly. This version clocks in at less than half the time, and it has turned out to be a terrific way to make the dish. Spanish Eggs and Potatoes made with one-pan recipeSpanish Eggs and Potatoes. [FOR THE WASHINGTON POST] FOOD6 servings Ingredients For the eggs and potatoes € cup extra-virgin olive oil € 1 pound Yukon Gold or other yellow-” eshed potatoes € 1 small yellow onion € 8 large eggs € Coarse sea salt € Freshly ground black pepper For the herby mayo € Handful of your favorite fresh herbs, preferably a blend, such as mint, basil and thyme € cup mayonnaise € lemon Steps For the eggs and potatoes: Heat the oil in a 9-inch castiron or ovenproof skillet, over medium heat. Rinse the potatoes, then cut them into -inch rounds, placing them ” at in the skillet as you work. Peel the onion and cut into thin slices, adding them to the pan. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so the potatoes brown on both sides and dont stick to the pan. Strain into a heatproof colander with a heatproof bowl beneath it to collect the oil. Position an oven rack 6 inches from the broiler element; preheat to broil. (You can reuse the oil, keeping in mind that it is onion-” avored; you will be using 1 tablespoon of it shortly.) Whisk the eggs in a large liquid measuring cup, then season generously with salt and pepper. Add the drained potato-onion mixture and stir to coat. Heat a tablespoon of the reserved oil in the now-empty skillet, over medium heat. Pour in the egg-potato mixture. Reduce the heat to mediumlow; cook for about 5 minutes, until the edges are just set. Transfer to the oven; broil for about 3 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Meanwhile, make the herby mayo: Mince the herbs and place in medium bowl, along with the mayo. Squeeze in the juice from the lemon, stirring until well incorporated. Use a thin spatula to loosen around the edges of the eggs (tortilla) and then under them. Slide it out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Sprinkle with a little more salt. Let it sit for a minute, then cut into 6 equal wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature, with dollops of the herby mayo.Spanish eggs and potatoes B7 4-3475 IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE FOURTEENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR HOLMES COUNTY, FLORIDA CASE NO. 30-2017-CA-000199 WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A.
