RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY … Holmes County commissioners are walking back a decision to put two fees on the ballot for popular vote.Holmes County Board of County Commissioners voted April 24 to remove the Municipal Service Benefit Unit (MSBU) for Fire Service and the Franchise Fee items from the August 28 primaries referendum.Commissioners expect both items to appear again as referendums in the future. Currently, they are seeking better scrutiny on both.The MSBU is set to have a current study done to update the last one that was com-pleted in 2006. The study will determine county expenditures and population needs. In order to set the MSBU in the most beneficial way for residents and the county itself, officials said the study needs to be updated before moving ahead with a referendum.The five-percent franchise fee was initially approved for referendum in January this year, however, commissioners said the board wanted to look more closely into how to structure the fee to best serve the residents.Commissioners unanimously agree they want the residents of Holmes County to decide whether or not they want the fee imposed on them."I believe the people need to decide what they want to pay," said Commissioner Phil-lip Music. "We do not need to decide how to spend their money for them."Established by a legal process outlined in Florida statute, the fee is a contract between the county and area utility companies Gulf Power and West Florida Electric Cooperative that outlines the companies use of the countys public right-of-ways.Cities can also set the struc-ture of franchise fees. In both cases, the fees only apply for customers within the bound-ary of each governments respective jurisdiction and appear as a separate item on customer bills. The utility companies then typically collect the fee from utility customers and remits it to the appropriate government entity.MSBU, franchise fee removed from referendumBy Jacqueline BostickTimes-Advertiser 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comHOLMES COUNTY „ Unemployment in Holmes County is slightly down from last month and year-over-year.The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity recently released its month unemployment data report for March.

The grant was designed to be awarded to reimburse City of Bonifay for their portion of a match on a fed-eral American Firefighters Grant (AFG) for $290,000 to purchase a new tanker/pumper truck.Assistant Fire Chief and Bonifay City Councilman Travis Cook expressed his gratitude on behalf of both the department and the City.We are so grateful to be the first recipients of this grant,Ž said Cook. The department needed the new truck and without the city willing to meet the match, we wouldnt have it.

The money came from an initial $300 million that Triumph Gulf Coast has received from the states share of the settlement from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.Before the money changes hands to the local level, terms still must be negotiated about performance requirements and how the state can recover money if the projects dont produce promised results,Ž according to a news release from Triumph.Triumph is required to spread out money to the eight Gulf Coast counties most affected by the spill, with minimum spending benchmarks for each county --Bay, Escambia, Franklin, Gulf, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Wakulla and Walton. Triumph is expected to direct the money to regional projects rather than directly to indi-vidual businesses.The seven-member board for the non-profit Triumph is expected to eventually handle three-quarters of the $2 billion the state will get over the next 13 years from BP.The largest allocation Friday was for $10 million to the Port of Panama City to help with a $59.86 million project already underway to develop new terminal facilities.The work, which also is receiving money from the local port authority, the Florida Department of Transportation and the Florida Seaport Transportation Economic Development Council, is projected to support more than 140 direct jobs at the port and another 250 man-ufacturing and distribution jobs.Another $1.5 million will go to help pay for an Okaloosa County project to bring water and sewer lines to land east of Crestview where an industrial site is going up at a site known as Shoal River Ranch. The county has options to purchase several thou-sand acres in the more than 10,000-acre site.While a county would normally be expected to provide water and sewer as part of its basic package of services, the population density surrounding this large rural area is insufficient to move the project to the top of the water/ sewer priority list,Ž according to an economic advisory review posted by Triumph.The remaining $6.75 million will go to separate existing career-technical education programs in Wakulla and Escambia counties.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett With Mothers Day coming in May we begin to read many stories about mothers. We are often invited to submit pictures or stories of our mothers. Southern Living magazine has several stories written by unknown as well as well known writers including Jenna Bush Hagler and my favorite, Rick Bragg. I covet Braggs skill at character descriptions. I picture his Momma is she spikedŽ collard greens with cane sugar and hot pepper. I am sure his writing strikes such a chord with me is that I identify many of the character traits he describes in different individuals of my growing up years in the deep south and some of the people she cooked for, some he said shed rather poison than feed. I have said a lot about my Mama in the past, but this time of year always brings up memories of her, and Braggs descriptions sharpen my perceptions of the woman Marie Harris Wells was. Reared by her Cook Grandparents after the death of her mother when mama was four she and her younger brother Edward grew up in the household with older uncles and aunts. Times were so hard and they were so poor that two more mouths to feed was a hardship for her grandparents and added to her sense of insecurity which we came to understand more fully as she reverted to that childhood state in her last years. But Bragg wrote about his Grandmas cooking skill. She apparently had been a cook for other people. My Mama never did that only as she fixed a pot of soup, a pot roast, or some other dish to share with a family in worse circumstances than ours. But cook, mama did. Every day. Three times a day many days unless Daddy was not home and then we might have hot biscuits and milk gravy or corn dodgers and cane syrup for supper. Some of those that shed rather poison than feed probably included the drunk who wandered by and hung out at the barn with his jug till it was empty; the loose woman who came to pick a mess of butter beans and lingered to helpŽ with the milking and other barn chores; the hitchhiker Daddyd picked up on the highway and stayed to helpŽ with farm repairs; the hitchhiker who claimed to be a circus performer and showed us how he could eatŽ glass; the large family of relatives who came for an extended visit or just for a one time meal visit, unannounced and uninvited. But Mama held up pretty well in the cooking department. She was healthy, I suppose as she bore 10 children and raised 8 to adulthood. I cant remember her being sick unless you count a bone felon or toes raw from corn plasters. She was not, however, what I would call a strong woman, physically. Many women from our neighborhood helped in the field. They would quickly dispense with breakfast chores and join the men in the field gathering vegetables, picking cotton, stacking peanuts or things the menfolk were involved in. At lunch time, shed go to the house and fix the family something for lunch, Then rejoin them later in the field. Though our Mama seemed weak physically, never lifting heavy bushels of peas or bales of hay, she was strong.. Strong in her convictions that her children would have a better life than she had. Strong in her resolve to make us understand that we were better than some behaviors, better than yes, even some people whose behavior brought shame upon themselves or their family. When our oldest son was in the hospital as a result of being struck by a motorbike as he got off the school bus and was in a leg cast from his hip down, he said, I wish Grannie Rea was not your Mama.Ž Shocked at such a statement, I ask why. He said, then, you wouldnt be so weak and you could turn me over.Ž My Mama might not have won any weight lifting contests. But she was strong. Strong enough to survive a childhood of poverty. Strong enough to bear six children in six years. Strong enough to bury one child as a result of whooping cough and colitis. Strong enough to do without a new winter coat and a lot of other things. Strong enough to talk into her children her conviction that the Bibles values were the ones we were to live by. Strong enough to believe that a good education was the key to a better life and to make sure that her brood were in school every day unless they were sick. I am proud to say that we have strong women in our family, a daughter, two strong daughters-in-law and 6 strong granddaughters. None of them will win any weightlifting contest, but Grannie Rea would be proud of the fact that they each have enough education to support themselves. That they know who they are and where they came from. That they believe in a God who saves, sustains, and secures them. I am confident they will never go begging for bread. Thank you Mama who was little in stature but a lion of strength in our family.HAPPY CORNERStrong women of the south Hazel TisonEight years ago this month, a disaster of epic proportions began to unfold in the Gulf of Mexico. A well below the Deepwater Horizon oil rig erupted, about 40 miles off the coast of Louisiana „ triggering a fiery explosion that killed 11 workers and injured many others, toppling and sinking the massive structure, and sending an estimated total of 210 million gallons of crude into the Gulf for nearly three months. Considered the worst marine-based oil spill ever, the catastrophe resulted in both shortand long-term environmental damage. As the thick slicks spread, countless forms of wildlife were covered with oil, marshes in Louisiana and beaches in Northwest Florida were fouled, and the waterfront economies up and down the Gulf coast sustained significant losses. Researchers continued to see the effects on marine animals „ including the discovery of mutated fish and record numbers of dolphin deaths „ for years. One of the many responses was the creation of a credible, bipartisan National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling. In its January 2011 final report, the commission recommended, among other things, tighter controls on equipment designed to prevent blowouts. It took the Interior Department until April 2015 to impose the Blowout Preventer Systems and Well Control Rule, designed to stop explosions in undersea oil and gas wells. It was hardly a rush job. In light of the commissions findings, the magnitude of the spill and the fact that the Deepwater Horizon rig was considered state-of-the-art, this rule was certainly warranted. Yet the Trump administration and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke have proposed changes to weaken the rule. For instance, Interior has called for reversing a requirement for frequent testing of blowout preventers, eliminating independent audits of safety and pollution-prevention equipment. The increased risks associated with this proposal are compounded by the administrations announced plans to dramatically expand offshore areas „ including those in the Gulf „ where testing and drilling are allowed. None of this is good for human safety or environmental protection. In January, in a bipartisan gesture, 20 of Floridas 27 U.S. representatives signed a letter in opposition to the administrations stances „ joining Sen. Bill Nelson in protesting the proposed rule changes and expansion of drilling. Last week, Nelson and fellow Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington filed much-need legislation that would put the blowout-preventer and well-control rule into law. Their bill would also codify the Arctic Drilling Rule, which created special regulations affecting operations in icy waters. The legislation is warranted to protect not only the marine environment and coastal economies but human lives. By codifying the rules in law, the legislation would require congressional approval for any changes in them. Recollections of the Deepwater Horizon disaster may have faded a bit, so this eight-year anniversary is a reminder. Congress should pass Nelsons bill as a sign that the painful lessons learned have not been forgotten. This guest editorial was originally published in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, a sister newspaper of the within Gatehouse Media.O shore well rules should be made law By Rick JensenFresno States refusal to fire professor Randa Jarrar is proof that our first amendment protections are important and necessary for a free society. Jarrars disgusting characterizations of the late First Lady Barbara Bush just minutes following the announcement of her passing are indeed protected, as is the right of taxpayer-funded Fresno State to define their university as a bastion of angry, foul-mouthed instructors bent on filling young minds with filth and profanity. While Conservatives calling for the dismissal of Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar are wrong, Fresno President Castro was also disingenuous in stating that Fresno State has no authority to discipline Farrar due to free speech.Ž Free speechŽ has nothing to do with the universitys ability to discipline Farrar. As stated on page 10 of the Fresno State Staff Handbook, The university has the authority to impose discipline on employees which may include suspension, demotion or dismissal. So, it is up to the ironically-named President Castro to decide with his board and legal counsel whether or not Farrars public profanity-laced rage and personal attacks rises to the level of unprofessional conduct.Ž He has obviously decided it doesnt, and any admonition of the professors statements means absolutely nothing when Fresno State leaderships actions are nonexistent. Should Farrar be fired? Thats not up to the government... or you, unless you are a member of the Fresno State Board of Governors. Bottom line: Castro and his team crafted a false narrative to justify keeping Farrar on staff and its not up to you, me or the government to intervene. Randa Jarrar is the face of Fresno States identity.No punishment for Barbara Bush-hating professor

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, May 2, 2018 A9 NATION & WORLDBy Rahim Faiez and Amir ShahThe Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan „ Two Islamic State suicide bombers struck in Afghanistans capital on Monday, killing 25 people, including nine journalists who had rushed to the scene of the first attack, in the deadliest assault on reporters since the fall of the Taliban in 2001.An Agence France-Presse photographer, a cameraman for the local Tolo TV station and several reporters for the Afghan branch of Radio Free Europe were among the fatal-ities, police said. At least 45 people were wounded in the attacks, according to Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai, who said four police were among those killed.The attack was the latest in a relentless string of largescale bombings and assaults in the capital and elsewhere in Afghanistan this year.A few hours later, in the southern Kandahar province, a suicide car bomb targeting a NATO convoy killed 11 children from a nearby religious school, police said. The chil-dren had gathered around the NATO convoy for fun when the bomber struck, said Abdul Rahim Ayubi, a lawmaker from Kandahar. Eight Romanian NATO sol-diers were wounded.The Islamic State group claimed the Kabul bombings in a statement posted online, saying it targeted the Afghan intelligence headquarters. The statement did not say anything about specifically targeting journalists. The blasts took place in the central Shash Darak area, home to NATO headquarters and a number of embassies and for-eign offices „ as well as the Afghan intelligence service.Stanekzai said the first suicide bomber was on a motorbike, while the second targeted those scrambling to the scene to aid victims. He said the second attacker was on foot in a crowd of reporters, pretending to be a member of the press, when he set off his payload.AFP said the news agencys chief photographer in Kabul, Shah Marai, was among those killed. Hundreds of people attended his funeral later on Monday.Media watchdog Reporters Without Borders said it was the deadliest attack targeting reporters since the U.S.-led invasion that overthrew the Taliban in 2001.The Paris-based group named the nine journalists killed, who worked for media organizations from multiple countries, and said another six reporters were wounded. The group, also known by its French acronym RSF, said 36 media workers have been killed in Afghanistan in attacks by IS or the Taliban since 2016.In a separate attack in the eastern Khost province, a 29-year-old reporter for the BBCs Afghan service was shot dead by unknown gunmen. The BBC confirmed the death of Ahmad Shah, saying he had worked for its Afghan service for more than a year. BBC World Service Director Jamie Angus called it a devastating loss.ŽSurvivors of the attacks in Kabul recounted scenes of mayhem.When the explosion hap-pened, everywhere was covered with dust and fire, it was such a horrific scene,Ž said Jawed Ghulam Sakhi, a 28-year-old taxi driver. I saw journalists covered with blood.ŽMasouda, a young woman who was with her husband when he was wounded in the attack, lashed out at the authorities.I dont know who is responsible for all these attacks. Every day we lose our loved ones and no one in this government is taking responsibility for the killing of these innocent people,Ž she said. Like many Afghans, she has one name.Afghan President Ashraf Ghani condemned the attacks, as did the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.We extend our deepest condolences to the families, friends, and colleagues of all the victims, including a number of brave journalists among the dead and injured,Ž the embassy said. Where media are in danger, all other human rights are under greater threat.ŽTwin bombings in Afghanistan kill 25Attack is latest in string of large-scale assaults; victims include nine journalistsSecurity forces run from the site of a suicide attack after the second bombing Monday in Kabul, Afghanistan. A coordinated double suicide bombing hit central Kabul on Monday morning. [MASSOUD HOSSAINI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]


** A10 Wednesday, May 2, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy ZipRecruiter.comY ouve been out of the working world for a while. Whether you took some time off to travel or stayed home for a few years to raise a family, youre finally ready to pack up that briefcase, polish up your resume, and make your grand entrance back into the workforce. Theres only one problem: You feel completely out of touch. Heading back to work after taking a break can be intimidating. But, break or no break, you arent the first person to feel overwhelmed by the job hunt. So, take a deep breath, gather your courage, and stop telling yourself these self-deprecating (and totally false) things. 1. I dont have any skills Sure, you might be a little short on recent experience. But, that doesnt mean youre not bringing anything to the table for a potential employer. You definitely still have knowledge, capabilities and value to provide „ even if you havent put them to use in an office setting in a few months or years. Instead of zoning in on the things youre lacking, channel your focus onto the things that you offer. That way, youll be able to approach any interview with poise and self-assuredness. Those are qualities that any employer will admire. 2. Ive been gone for too long Yes, there might be a bit of a learning curve in order to get up to speed on any big changes in technology, tools and procedures that have cropped up since youve been gone. But its nothing insurmountable. Remember, you simply took some time off „ you didnt go to Mars. Invest some time into getting caught up with any major changes in your industry, and youll feel back in your prime in no time. And, not only that, youll probably be better informed than many of the people who never took a break but also never bothered to stay updated on current trends. 3. I have to go back to what I did before Heading directly back to the career you left can seem like your only option „ particularly when you feel unemployable to begin with. However, if you werent quite satisfied or fulfilled by your past position, theres no law stating that you have to return to it. In fact, since youve pressed pause on your professional life for a while anyway, now could be the perfect time for a career shift. Do some research and figure out what youd like your next steps to be. If you want to stick with what you know, thats great, but, if you find something that seems like an interesting new challenge that could benefit from your transferrable skills, thats awesome, too. Dont trap yourself into thinking that youre destined to stay stuck in your rut. Youre entitled to just as much career freedom as anybody else. 4. Nobody will hire me Literally everybody who is going through a job hunt feels this way. That little voice in your head can be your worst enemy when youre looking for a new gig. That voice tells you youre not good enough, smart enough, experienced enough, skilled enough. Its time to tell that cold, cruel voice to just shut up already. You will find somebody who not only hires you, but is thrilled with the opportunity to do so. Yes, it might take some time. But, eventually youll land on your feet and find an opportunity that thrills you, regardless of what that pesky little voice has to say about it.Getting back into the workforce? Dont let these thoughts derail you JOBSBack saddlein theFREEPIKDear Dave: Why dont you recommend having short-term disability insurance while doing the first three Baby Steps of your plan? It seems like a good time for it, when youre in the beginning stages of getting your finances in order. „ Bob Dear Bob: You could certainly do that if you want, possibly even through your place of employment. Im a big fan of folks having long-term disability insurance when theyre in their prime wage-earning years. But short-term disability is something Ive always considered to be gimmick insurance, and thats something I dont recommend or buy. I get the argument, too, that short-term disability coverage usually isnt very expensive. But during the first two Baby Steps „ getting a $1,000 beginner emergency fund set aside, and paying off everything but the house „ youre trying to limit expenses as much as possible. Chances are you wouldnt need it in Baby Step 3, because that covers your full emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. Hope that helps, Bob. Dear Dave: My husband and I are trying to buy a house, but we both have low credit scores, so were having trouble securing a loan. Weve heard you talk about getting a mortgage loan with no credit score. Is this the same as a low credit score? „ Laura Dear Laura: No, it is not. No credit score, means you dont have any credit or your credit score is indeterminable.Ž A low credit score indicates youve had „ or still have „ debt in your life, and you havent done a good job of paying creditors on time. Two things will help solve the problem of having a low credit score. One is time. If youve had instances of late payments from years ago, time will help heal that to a degree. The older late issues become, the less they count against you. But my guess is you two probably have some bad debt. By bad debt, I mean things that were never paid, or accounts that are in collections. If thats the case, you need to contact those people, and settle those debts in full „ and in writing „ as quickly as possible. Officially close the accounts, too, before you try to buy a home. When it comes to buying a home, Laura, I always advise folks to first be debt-free and have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses set aside. Dave Ramsey has written seven best-selling books. His radio program, The Dave Ramsey Show, is heard by more than 11 million listeners each week.DAVE SAYSWhy not shortterm disability?

Tune in online at daytonamotormouths Any chance Joey Logano is next with a three-race win streak? GODSPEAK: Sorry to all those Logano fans, but those 3-race streaks are over for now. KENS CALL: Absolutely, positively, no chance. That trend ends Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch. Until Kyle does it again, of course.Will Matt Kenseth win a race this year? GODSPEAK: Of course he will win. He is the 2003 Cup Series champion Matt Kenseth. His experience will lead him to Victory Lane. Heck, maybe at Kansas. KENS CALL: Nope. But some top-10s will be considered a success for the No. 6 team. Trevor Bayne just got a little “ recracker slipped into his back pocket for Dover, by the way.CLINT BOWYER VS. JIMMIE JOHNSON: Bowyer was swept out of the race when Johnsons No. 48 Chevy went sideways in Turn 3 to ignite the Big One.Ž Fourteen cars were involved. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Yes, it is plate-racing at Talladega, but Bowyer called Johnson out. I dont know if he got loose or was trying to get in a hole, but the No. 48 wasnt clear and wrecked a bunch of us,Ž he said.WINNER: Chase Elliott REST OF TOP 5: Martin Truex Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch FIRST ONE OUT: Kevin Harvick DARK HORSE: Trevor Bayne DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Elliott makes it five top-five finishes in five starts at Dover, only this time he tops the field.Feel bad for Trevor?In a way. Being replaced during the season, in such a high-pro“ le way, carries a bit of public humiliation. But its Matt Kenseth, and the team suggests there are monetary considerations with a new sponsor attached to Kenseth, so that lessens the blow a bit. Oh, and this: In older times, drivers had no contractual legs to stand on, but nowadays they know the legalities of their contracts must be followed. If youre still getting paid, it probably helps. Hershel McGriff? You kidding?Hopefully, we dont end up wishing they were kidding. McGriff, a West Coast racing legend, is scheduled to race this weekend at a K&N West event in Tucson. It will be his “ rst race since 2012 ƒ when he was 84. Yes, Hershel turned 90 last December, but a few weeks ago he practiced on the Tucson track and reportedly erased any concerns.

If he wins the race, he would be eligible for the playoffs. He was hoping to nab the win at Talladega, but was crashed out on Lap 71.

Thats how we got all strung out, trying to be the one guy by himself.Ž3. And Chase saysChase Elliott continues to chase his first NASCAR Cup Series victory. In his last two outings (Richmond, Talladega), he has scored top-three finishes. He has never finished less than fifth in four Dover starts. Elliott was frustrated by his Ford rivals at Talladega. I was trying to move forward and they (Fords) were not interested in advancing,Ž he said. It could have been a lot worse, so well move on to Dover.Ž„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. kelly@news-jrnl.comDriver Trevor Bayne will get one more chance to put a smile on team owner Jack Roushs face when the No. 6 Ford races at Dover this weekend.

He apologized for what he said was his offensive behavior.Ž Teague said hed had too much to drink at the retreat and that his behavior doesnt illustrate his true character.Ann Aronson, former deputy chief of staff in University President Eric Kalers office, and Erin Dady, special assis-tant to the president, said they reported Teagues actions because they were frightened and feared others would be subject to such behavior. Rodchenkov seeks dismissal of libel lawsuitThe whistleblower who exposed Russian cheat-ing at the 2014 Olympics filed a motion Monday to dismiss a libel lawsuit against him, which his lawyers portrayed as a ploy led by the Russian owner of the Brooklyn Nets to reveal his whereabouts.Former Moscow lab director Grigory Rodchenkov has been living in hiding in the United States, fearful of Russian retribution since revealing his countrys elaborate scheme to cheat at the Sochi Games.Rodchenkov seeks dis-missal of the libel lawsuit supported by Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on behalf of three Russian biathletes whose medals from the Sochi Games were stripped for doping. By Gary B. GravesThe Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. „ Chad Brown acknowl-edges he has lacked either the right horse or the right luck to win the Kentucky Derby. Until now.Brown almost gushes when talking about Good Magic, which might position him to finally break through in Saturdays 144th Run For The Roses at Churchill Downs. If the chestnut colts name alone doesnt suggest a positive vibe, then consider his resume that includes last years Breeders Cup Juvenile and the Eclipse Award as the top 2-year-old male.Good Magic is hitting stride at the right time entering horse racings marquee event, standing second in Derby points with 134 after claiming the Grade 2 Blue Grass at Keeneland on April 7. Five career starts have yielded two wins, two seconds and a third for Good Magic, allowing Brown to envision winning horse racings crown jewel after falling short four previous times.Brown would like to remove himself from conversations about which up-and-coming trainer is due to break through.We have to think that with all the opportunities that keep coming our way, we have a good shot of doing this,Ž said Brown, 39. Whether that happens or not remains to be seen.Ill say this: for me this is our best chance. Seems that way, anyway.ŽBrown earned his first Triple Crown series victory in last years Preakness with Cloud Computing before Breeders Cup wins with Good Magic and filly Rushing Fall helped claim his second consecutive Eclipse award as top trainer. His success has stoked a belief that beating 19 other horses over 1 1/ 4 mile is just a matter of time and opportunity. Having a special horse is most important, and Browns bright outlook speaks volumes after previous entries have finished out of the money on racings big-gest stage.Practical Joke was fifth last May. Normandy Invasion led after a mile and in the stretch in 2013 before fading at the end and finishing fourth, leaving the trainer to ponder some what-ifs with his strategy.Brown hopes Good Magic earns him win Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry shoots during warmups before Game 1 of an NBA second-round playoff series against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday in Oakland, Calif. [MARCIO JOSE SANCHEZ/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Janie McCauleyThe Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. „ The last time Golden State got Stephen Curry back from a knee injury in the playoffs, he immediately returned to brilliance.Curry returned for Game 4 of the Warriors five-game Western Conference semifinals against Portland two years ago and made 16 of 32 shots with five 3-pointers and scored 17 points in overtime on the way to 40 in a 132-125 victory. He grabbed nine rebounds and dished out eight assists.If that is any indicator, the New Orleans Pelicans better be ready for a superstar as eager as ever to get back on the court and chase a repeat championship.The two-time MVP, sidelined since spraining his left knee March 23, is expected to play Tuesday night in Game 2 against New Orleans with what is sure to be a fired-up crowd at Oracle Arena. The Warriors have won a franchise-record 13 straight home playoff games.In late December against Memphis, Curry came back after being sidelined 11 games with a sprained right ankle to score 38 points with 10 3-pointers.Im not too worried about him. Ive seen him come back from injuries many times,Ž coach Steve Kerr said Monday. ... Sometimes its just one shot that gets him going.ŽAnd what a boost Currys presence could be for the defending champions who are already clicking on both ends.He loves the game just as much as anybody I ever been around and I know he wants to play. Ive just been thinking about that, just worrying about how he feels not play-ing,Ž reigning Finals MVP Kevin Durant said. ... Excited for him to get back just to be in a place where he enjoys most, which is playing ball, and the other stuff, well figure it out. But Im more so excited as his brother that hes out there, he gets to play basketball, something that he loves to do.ŽThe Pelicans prepared all week to see Curry back on the court and they know they must bounce back fast to stay in this best-of-seven series after a 123-101 flop in Saturday nights Game 1.Golden State scored 41 points in the second quarter and 76 in the first half „ both new fran-chise-bests for the postseason. The Warriors shot 13 for 20 in the second, making four 3s and 11 of 14 free throws.While New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry thought his teams long layoff might have hurt, the players said it was much more.We hang our hats on defense,Ž Rajon Rondo said. What happened in the second quarter is inexcusable. I cant blame it on a week off of rest. Its a lack of communication and not being disciplined. If we can clean that up, I think well be fine.ŽAnthony Davis and Rondo will challenge the Pelicans to play with more intensity on the defensive end. The Warriors thrived when they made things hard on Davis to take shots, got stops and pushed the ball in transition.Were very confident. Its one game. They win by 40, you win by one, 90, its one game,Ž Davis said. Its still best-out-of-seven. Our job is to learn from what we messed up tonight and get prepared for Game 2.ŽThe Warriors have taken their defense to another level, led by Durant and Draymond Green „ who is coming off a triple-double and has 15, 19 and 18 rebounds in his past three games, respectively.Golden State also is pushing the pace, a far different game than in the first round against the Spurs.We all like to get out in tran-sition,Ž Warriors guard Shaun Livingston said Monday. We can slow it down and we under-stand to win games well have to execute and maybe win some grind-out games, thats just part of playoff basketball, but everybody loves to run.ŽCurry ready to return for Warriors in Game 2Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry, left, watches his shot next to teammate Kevin Durant as players warm up for Game 1 of an NBA second-round playoff series against the New Orleans Pelicans, on Saturday in Oakland, Calif.

** B2 Wednesday, May 2, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Stan Choe and Ken SweetThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks fell moderately on Monday, giving up an early gain, but still ended April higher. It was the first monthly increase for the market since January as com-pany earnings have come in better than many expected. Indexes jumped in the early going following news of several buyout deals and more strong earnings reports, but sagged after lunchtime, weighed down by losses for telecom stocks and other areas of the market.The Dow Jones indus-trial average lost 148.04 points, or 0.6 percent, to 24,163.15. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 21.86 points, or 0.8 per-cent, to 2,648.05 and the Nasdaq composite lost 53.53 points, or 0.8 percent, to 7,066.27.Dow member McDonalds jumped 5.8 percent to $167.83 after it reported healthier profit and revenue than analysts expected for the first three months of the year. Sales at its restau-rants open more than a year were much stronger than Wall Street had forecastMcDonalds joined the wave of companies to report big earnings growth for the first quar-ter, which has been better than analysts expected. Just over half the compa-nies in the S&P 500 have reported their earnings for the first three months of the year, and theyre on pace to deliver over-all growth of 23 percent, according to FactSet. That would be the stron-gest showing since the summer of 2010.Its been phenomenal,Ž said Phil Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Investors. Corporate earnings are doing better. Economic growth is doing better, and I think the market is begrudgingly allowing those numbers to work their way into share prices.Ž The S&P 500 has been whipping higher and lower in recent months, hurt by worries about higher interest rates and the possibility of a trade war. But the index is ending April up a modest 0.3 percent, compared to the 2.7 percent loss it had in March and 3.9 percent loss it had in February.Stocks dip, but markets stay high overallBy Alex VeigaThe Associated PressLOS ANGELES „ Get ready for a little bit more pain at the pump this summer.Crude oil prices are at the highest level in more than three years and expected to climb higher, pushing up gasoline prices along the way.The U.S. daily national average for regular gaso-line is now $2.81 per gallon. Thats up from about $2.39 per gallon a year ago, according to Oil Price Information Service. And across the U.S., 13 percent of gas stations are charging $3 per gallon or more, AAA said last week.This will be the most expensive driving season since 2014,Ž said Tom Kloza, global head of energy analysis for Oil Price Infor-mation Service.The price of U.S. crude oil has been on a mostly steady incline since last June and last week hit $68.64, the highest since December 2014. Benchmark U.S. crude closed Friday at $68.10. Oil prices near $70 shouldnt put the brakes on economic growth, however. While theyre boosting costs for some sectors of the economy, the energy sector and related industries have more money to spend on equipment and workers.But higher oil prices are certainly an inconvenience for drivers, especially those with lower incomes.The good news is, both at the global level and the U.S. level, this is occurring at a time when growth is fairly robust,Ž said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Markit. But consumers as whole will be hurt, mostly because gasoline prices are going up.ŽKevin Lanke, a motion picture lighting technician in Redondo Beach, Califor-nia, says hes now paying about $3.39 per gallon to fill up the 25-gallon tank in his 2000 Land Cruiser SUV. Thats about 20 cents more per gallon than a couple of months ago.I would fill up my car and it would be $52 or $53,Ž said Lanke, 51. Now its in the mid $60s for the same amount of gas.ŽLanke keeps the recent increase in perspective, noting the three years ago he and his fellow Californians were paying over $4 per gallon. But hes already weighing his options, saying if gas goes to $4 a gallon hell buy a more fuel-efficient car to use as his main ride and drive the Land Cruiser only when he needs it.Several factors have helped drive oil prices higher. A wave of global economic growth has driven up demand for oil. At the same time, produc-tion cutbacks initiated by OPEC last year have helped whittle down oil supplies.In the U.S., oil supplies were running 1.1 million barrels lower at the start of this summers driving season, which runs from April through September, than a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Infor-mation Administration.That has amplified the typical increase in gas prices seen this time of year. Pump prices normally rise as demand increases from families going on vacation and taking to the highways on road trips. Already, U.S. consumer demand for gasoline hit a record high for the month of April, according to the EIA.Pain at the pumpGet ready for the most expensive driving season in years BUSINESS Gas stations display the price of gasoline Monday in Englewood, N.J.

He would be the CEO of the combined company.T-Mobile and Sprint have been considering a combination for years. But a 2014 attempt fell apart amid resistance from the Obama admin-istration. And in 2017 another potential deal fell through as well.The combined company, to be called T-Mobile, would have about 127 million customers. Consumers worry a less crowded telecom field could result in higher prices, while unions are concerned about potential job losses.In a conference call with Wall Street analysts, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure acknowledged that getting regulatory approval is the elephant in the room.Ž One of the first things the companies did after sending out the deals news release was to call Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.The companies stressed that they plan to have more employees following the combina-tion, particularly in rural areas, than they do as stand-alone companies now.They also emphasized that the deal would help accelerate their develop-ment of faster 5G wireless networks and ensure that the U.S. doesnt cede leadership on the tech-nology to China.And they said the com-bination would allow them to better compete with a growing number of competitors in a changing market.Verizon and AT&T have been expanding their video-content businesses, while cable companies have been moving into wireless. That allows a single com-pany to combine home and wireless internet and use content to sup-port the communications businesses.Sprint, TMobile have to sell $26.5B deal to antitrust copsMARKET MOVERS€ McDonald's Corp.: Up $9.14 to $167.44. The fastfood giant reported higher earnings and revenue in the “ rst quarter than Wall Street analysts had expected. € Sprint Corp.: Down 89 cents to $5.61. The company is trying again to combine with T-Mobile US.BRIEFCASEWASHINGTONGovt argues that AT&T deal would hurt consumersThe U.S. government pleaded its case Monday for blocking AT&T from absorbing Time Warner, saying it would hurt con-sumers as a big antitrust trial crept toward its end and a decision by a federal judge.The $85 billion proposed merger is a big deal,Ž Craig Conrath, the lead Justice Department attor-ney, said on the last day of the trial in federal court. It would have a massive effect on the structure of the pay TV industry.ŽThe Trump Justice Department sued in November to block the deal, saying it would force consumers to pay hun-dreds of millions of dollars more to watch their favor-ite shows, whether on a TV screen, smartphone or tablet.

** B4 Wednesday, May 2, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser FAITHDont get personal. Insults are a wedge in the ever-widening divide among us. We are not one-dimensional beings. Have I been guilty of hurtful language in the past? Yes. But now I realize I can voice my opinions and stay polite. Recently, we stayed with folks who have polar opposite political beliefs from our own. It can be done. It doesnt require avoidance. Being polite is not a lack of conviction. Civility doesnt equate to weakness. A conversation becomes insightful if it is not peppered with words like ignorant,Ž ridiculousŽ or crazy.Ž Even general words like Democrats, Republicans, liberals, and conservatives are spit out with ridicule. Watch the tone. No one has ever achieved understanding through shame, guilt or insults. Cant accept a position? Roger that. But acceptance of ones humanity is easier. When my husband and I stayed with friends who hail from the other end of the political spectrum, I was a teensy bit worried about how things might play out. Our friends are good people, just like we are. Yet, nowadays, it would be typical to point at each other and insist, You are sadly misinformed.Ž When the conversation turned to politics, JanŽ first bemoaned family division. We have relatives who no longer speak to each other. Its so sad.Ž Ive heard this from other circles. Friends who are now no longer friends. Parents and siblings who disown each other, each side insisting they cannot associate with anyone who thinks like that.Ž Its one-dimensional thinking. Lives now mimic Facebook feeds, where algorithms send only the version of news FB thinks a user wants to see. The difference is Facebook manipulates this for you. In comparison, we choose to delete real relationships because of differences of opinion. Why? Do we all have to march in one-thought-lockstep? While visiting, I was mindful of the foundation of our friendship: Shared memories and experiences, a mutual trust. This respect allowed us to voice very different opinions. Nothing was held back except for name-calling and insults, with sarcasm held in check. We never got personal. Each of us used language key to conflict management. Speak from the authentic place of I thinkŽ or I feel.Ž Do not use phrases like you think,Ž you are,Ž (or the ever-offensive, you peopleŽ), which can sound accusatory or presumptive. Keep it personal without getting personal with others. Our visit went well, exceptionally so. Were there tense moments? Sure. When discussing a point of history, our friend said, I dont believe that,Ž and I blurted out, Wait. You think the Pentagon Papers was a hoax?Ž He replied, Well, I guess I dont know too much about it.Ž I so respect that. It would have been a difficult admission had the insults been flying. Do you get angry and personal in your political conversations? Stop. Hold close family and friends of every stripe. Dont reduce your life to an algorithm.When discussing politics, dont get personal S u z e t t e M a r t i n e z S t a n d r i n g Suzette Martinez StandringIf you would like to include an event in this list, email information to: Winterville Assembly to host The ShepherdsBONIFAY „ Winterville Assembly of God will host The Shepherds at 7 p.m. Friday, May 4 at the church.

A little vitamin D has many health benefits, and best of all its free. With all the sun-filled days, tank tops, spaghetti straps and sundresses are No. 1 on our wardrobe list. So upper-body workouts become a bit higher on the to-do list as well. Our move is a single arm pec deck, and you will need a set of light hand weights. It will work your chest, shoulders and upper back. You can perform this move by standing or sitting. Begin by grasping your weights in each hand, lifting your arms up and out from your body at shoulder level, and bend in the elbows. Roll your shoulders back and down to engage the proper muscles, hold your chest tall, and angle your palms forward. Now you are ready to move. Taking one arm at a time, guide your elbow in towards your chest. Keeping the weight up, and creating a squeeze in the chest. Once you reach your fullest contraction, return to the start position. Then repeat on the other arm. Continue this in and out alternating movement for at least eight to 10 times on each arm. Take a small break, rolling your shoulders and releasing your neck, then repeat for three to five sets. This move should be performed slowly and precisely to avoid any strain on your neck shoulders. If the weight becomes too much, continue without the weights. You can add this exercise to any upper-body workout, as a finisher or on its own as a little pick-me-up before you head out for your daily dose of vitamin D.

[SCOTT WHEELER/THE LEDGER] By Judith Graham Kaiser Health NewsTwo years ago, Dr. Daniel Coles 85-year-old father had heart bypass surgery. He hasnt been quite the same since. He forgets things and will ask you the same thing several times,Ž said Cole, a professor of clinical anesthesiology at UCLA and a past president of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. He never got back to his cognitive baseline,Ž Cole continued, noting that his father was sharp as a tack before the operation. Hes more like 80 percent.Ž His father likely has postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) „ a little-known condition that affects a substantial number of older adults after surgery, Cole said. Some patients with POCD experience memory problems; others have difficulty multitasking, learning new things, following multistep procedures or setting priorities. There is no single presentation for POCD. Different patients are affected in different ways,Ž said Dr. Miles Berger, a POCD specialist and assistant professor of anesthesiology at Duke University School of Medicine. Unlike delirium „ an acute, sudden-onset disorder that affects consciousness and attention „ POCD can involve subtle, difficult-to-recognize symptoms that develop days to weeks after surgery. Most of the time, POCD is transient and patients get better in several months. But sometimes „ how often hasnt been determined „ this condition lasts up to a year or longer. Dr. Roderic Eckenhoff, vice chair for research and a professor of anesthesiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, told of an email he received recently from a 69-year-old man who had read about his research. This guy „ a very articulate man „ said he was the intellectual equal of his wife before a surgery 10 years ago, a significant operation involving general anesthesia. Since then, hes had difficulty with cognitively demanding tasks at work, such as detailed questionand-answer sessions with his colleagues,Ž Eckenhoff said. He noticed these changes immediately after the surgery and claims he did not get better.Ž There are many unanswered questions about POCD. How should it best be measured? Is it truly a stand-alone condition or part of a continuum of brain disorders after surgery? Can it be prevented or treated? Can it be distinguished in the long term from the deterioration in cognitive function that can accompany illness and advanced aging? Some clarity should come in June, when a major paper outlining standard definitions for POCD is set to publish simultaneously in six scientific journals and scientists will discuss the latest developments at a two-day POCD summit, according to Eckenhoff. Heres what scientists currently know about POCD:Background. POCD first began to be studied systematically about 20 years ago. But reports of patients who appeared cognitively compromised after surgery date back about 100 years, Eckenhoff said. An influential 1955 report in The Lancet noted common complaints by family or friends after someone dear to them had surgery: Hes become so forgetful. ƒ Shes lost all interest in the family. ƒ He cant concentrate on anything. ƒ Hes just not the same person since.ŽHow to recognize the condition. There is no short, simple test for POCD. Typically, a series of neuropsychological tests are administered before and after surgery „ a timeconsuming process. Often, tests are given one week and again three months after surgery. But the tests used and time frames differ in various studies. Studies also define POCD differently, using varying criteria to assess the kind and extent of cognitive impairment that patients experience.How common is it? The first international study of older adults with POCD (those age 60 and older) in 1999 suggested that 25.8 percent of patients had this condition one week after a major non-cardiac surgery, such as a hip replacement, while 9.9 percent had it three months after surgery. Two years later, a study by researchers at Duke University Medical Center, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that 53 percent of adults who had heart bypass surgery showed significant evidence of cognitive decline when they were discharged from the hospital; 36 percent were affected at six weeks; 24 percent, at six months; and 42 percent, five years after their operations. Other studies have produced different estimates. A current research project examining adults 55 and older who have major non-cardiac surgeries is finding that upwards of 30 percent of patients are testing significantly worse than their baseline 3 months later,Ž according to its lead researcher, Dr. Stacie Deinerof the Icahn School of Medicine. POCD facts€ Postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a littleknown condition that affects a substantial number of older adults after surgery. € Adults age 60 and older are twice as likely to develop POCD as are younger adults „ a development that increases the risk of dying or having a poor quality of life after surgery.

LACTOSE INTOLERANCEKNOW THE SIGNSIf youve had the following symptoms a er eating dairy products, you may be lactose intolerant, says Mooala: € Gas € Bloating € Abdominal cramping € Diarrhea € Nausea „ Brandpoint Apple butter a tasty treat and ingredient FOODBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowThis is the time of year when artichoke fans have two reasons to cheer. The harvest has already begun in Mexico and the southern U.S., which means the large flower buds can already be found in stores. Meanwhile, at farmers markets of all latitudes, purveyors of bedding plants are selling potted artichokes for the garden. Even in Montana, the summers are getting hot enough that these Mediterranean members of the thistle family need to be planted a full 5 feet apart. Artichoke buds are harvested before they bloom into flowers. Unless, of course, you prefer to allow them to flower and look at rather than eat them. Myrna Varner became an artichoke grower when a vendor „ Luci Brieger of Lifeline Produce in Victor, Montana „ gifted her a baby plant as she was buying tomato starts. Now Varner grows three plants a year, and they produce later into the fall than the tomatoes. Im ready to tear the garden up and they were still bearing,Ž she told me. The best of thistles It is good for a man to eat thistles, and to remember that he is an ass,Ž notes Eneas Sweetland Dallas in his 1877 book Kettners Book of the Table: A Manual of Cookery, Practical, Theoretical, Historical.Ž There are several elaborate ways of dressing the artichoke „ the Barigoule way and Lyonnese way, for example.Ž He calls these fancy methods frantic attempts to paint the lily and to perfume the violet.Ž I think Dallas is spot-on in his less-is-more approach to artichokes. Depend upon it,Ž he concludes, the simplest way of dressing the artichoke is the best.Ž How to prepare Dallas recommends boiling the bud, but there is a case to be made for a roasting. I enjoy the caramelized flavors and the layers of texture that can result from some oven time. I like roasting artichokes so much, in fact, I roast them twice. First I trim them, by laying the artichokes on their sides on a cutting board and giving them flattops with a big, heavy knife. On each artichoke, slice a round, flat plane an inch or two from the tip. This reveals a cross-section of green, purple, pale yellow and burgundy leaves. Trim the stem to within two inches of the bottom. Place each head in a baking container in such a way that it can stay upright „ by which we mean flat side up. In a wide-mouth pint jar, the artichoke looks like a flower in a vase. A Pyrex measuring cup does the same thing. A banana bread dish holds two large artichokes, side by side. If you dont have anything that will work, trim the bottoms off so they sit flat and upright unsupported, and wing it from there. Put a half-inch of water and a clove of garlic at the bottom of whatever container you use, and set the artichoke(s) in place. Give a solid shake or two of salt onto the top of each artichoke, followed by two tablespoons lemon or lime juice, poured slowly enough that it seeps down between the leaves. Then slowly pour in about a third of a cup of olive oil per large artichoke. Cover each artichoke in foil, pressing firmly on all sides to make a seal between the foil and the thing thats holding the artichoke. With the water in the bottom, you are essentially constructing a steamer. Place the upright artichoke in its holder in the oven at 350 and bake (jars should be placed on a tray or skillet in case they tip). As it cooks, the oil will find its way down through the vascular tissue of the bud, through the stem and out the cut end and into the water below. After an hour, carefully remove the artichoke and holder from the oven, and take off the foil. When it has cooled enough to handle, gently pull the leaves away from the center, working all away around the artichoke, loosening the bud as if you were trying to force it to bloom. Get the lemon oil from below the artichoke and pour it back into the top of the half-baked artichoke, and put it back in the oven with the foil off, so the outer leaves get crispy as the center melts into a molten core of flavor. Cook about another hour, until the leaves pull off easily.FLASH IN THE PANWhether or not we believe the adage an apple a day keeps the doctor away,Ž we all agree that apples taste good whether raw or cooked. When I think of apples, many times apple butter comes to mind. Perhaps that is because Mauna, my friend and the best assistant I ever had, loved apple butter. I had never tasted apple butter until Mauna and I were in the Smoky Mountains testing recipes. We were served muffins with apple butter at one of our favorite restaurants, and it wasnt long until I was looking forward to this tasty treat every morning. Apple Butter Rolls€ 3 cups Southern Yeast Biscuit Dough (see below) € 4 oz. cream cheese, softened at room temperature € cup apple butter € cup “ rmly-packed light brown sugar € 1 cups confectioners sugar € 2 tablespoons apple juice Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9-inch cake pan. Spoon the soft dough onto a well-” oured surface. Knead until smooth. Roll to a rectangle about 10 by 16 inches. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, apple butter and brown sugar. Beat until smooth and spread over dough. Roll jelly-roll-fashion, starting with the 16-inch side. Cut into 1-inch slices. Place slices in cake pan. Bake about 20 minutes, or until rolls are slightly browned and no longer doughy. Turn out on a plate and then invert onto another plate so rolls will be right side up. Combine confectioners sugar and apple juice. Beat until smooth and drizzle over top of rolls. If drizzle is too thin, simply add more confectioners sugar.Southern Yeast Biscuit Dough€ cup warm water € 2 tablespoons sugar € 2 pkgs. dry yeast ( oz. each) € 5 cups self-rising ” our € 1 teaspoon baking soda € 1 cup shortening € 2 cups buttermilk Combine water and sugar in small bowl.

Cut in shortening using pastry blender, a fork or your “ ngertips until mixture resembles cornmeal. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk. Stir with a large wooden spoon until well mixed. This will not be a smooth dough. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed. It will keep for about a week.Email Prudence at P r u d e n c e H i l b u r n Prudence Hilburn Hearts & owers ARI LEVAUX How to enjoy artichokes, on the plate or in the garden
