The policy announcement focused on economic development through expanding vocational and technical skills training for students and sup-port for training programs at institutions.The proposal is aimed at the 28 percent of Floridas workforce who do not go on to earn higher education degrees.

However, due to lack of funding the con-struction of the landing zone at a cost of $6,000 has been halted.Commissioners agree that having landing zones placed throughout the county would be beneficial to citizens.It would be a real benefit to residents of the county to have these in the area,Ž said Commissioner Bobby Sassnett.Finding funding during the next budget cycle is a priority according to Chairman Danny Powell.Important items such as these really need to be looked at during budget time,Ž said Powell.Commissioners approved a motion to replace a half mile of milled asphalt on Cody Taylor Lane.

** Cathy Brown was recognized last week at Doctors Memorial Hospital awards ceremony for her 40 years of service to DMH. In a conversation with her this week, I am impressed with this small town girl who has accomplished so much. She came to DMH as a 19-year-old who had graduated Vernon High School a year before, but this was not her first job. Her friend, Josie Bowers Bell, was working at the hospital and encouraged her to apply. The only job available was a P.R.N. aid (as needed), which involved the most menial of tasks. But she was determined to find a career where she could use her God given talents and advance to a higher calling. Growing up in a large closeknit family of eleven siblings, she credits her mothers influence on her and her brothers and sisters, giving them a strong work ethic along with large doses of the Good Book,Ž and an expectation that they would better themselves.Ž Starting at the age of 13, Cathy worked in motels on Panama City Beach alongside her sisters. The housekeeping skills learned there helped to prepare her for hospital tasks that she later performed. When she turned 17, she graduated to restaurant work where she did everything from scrub floors, pots and pans, and toilets, help prepare food for the cook, cook, wait tables, you name it. As Ms Brown has steadily advanced at the Hospital, she has continued to improve not only her job skills, but her education. She now holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Care Administration from the University of Phoenix that she has earned while working full-time. She is also an ordained minister. She is active in her church, McQueens Temple in Vernon where she is president of the choir, serves on the finance committee, and the pastors aide committee. You wonder how this busy lady finds any time for her own pursuits, but she loves to read, novels, religious literature and she particularly loves Bible study. Although childless, she is Godmother to six. This is a lifetime commitment to help her Godchildren in any way that they need. In addition, she has numerous nieces and nephews, as well as great nieces and nephews, which she finds time for. Her mother with whom she lives is in declining health so she and her sisters take care of her with the brothers helping in other ways. Her mother and one sister are also licensed ministers. You could say the Brown family are a family of preachers. She has five brothers in the pastorate, two in Vernon, one in Defuniak, one in Tallahassee, and one in Jacksonville who holds a Doctorate of Divinity. With their individual commitments, they dont get together as often as theyd like, but they very much enjoy each others company when they do get together in the homes of the siblings. There is no formal reunion time. Cathy Browns philosophy that she has developed from her long work life considers perseverance and looking beyond the Now as two important virtues. She believes that life and work have a purpose and are more than a job. What you do should make an impact. As for personal interrelationships, I am paid by how I treat others; not by how they treat me.Ž She has worked under several administrators and has had a good relationship with all of them. She is humbled and thankful to the hospital and the administrative board for their recognition and for her retirement bonus and all the honors they bestowed on her. Though she is eligible for retirement, shes too young to retire and has no desire nor plans to retire in the near future. You will find her smiling face on the job at Doctors Memorial doing the work that she believes her Lord has given her to do.HAPPY CORNERFrom P.R.N. to head of dietary, housekeeping and materials A4 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserOPINIONThe Times-Advertiser is published on Wednesdays by GateHouse Media LLC at 112 E.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Hazel Tison U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross recently made his first public appearance since announcing he was retiring from Congress. And the Lakeland Republicans comments reminded us that a prickly issue remains unresolved. Ross said participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, ought to have an avenue to earn U.S. citizenship, according to Floridapolitics.com. We have to make sure those who came here of no accord of their own are treated fairly. Let them earn their way to citizenship. ... Thats not amnesty; it is earning their way,Ž he said. Ross indicated he was disappointedŽ that such a view had garnered criticism from immigr ation hardliners in Congress. After all, those who follow Ross closely know that hes no softy on dealing with illegal immigration. Ross has supported measures to crack down on sanctuary cities and also has favored constructing a wall along the Mexican border. DACA, crafted as protection against deportation by the Obama administration, covers roughly 800,000 people whose parents entered illegally and brought them to the United States as children. Last September the Trump administration announced the end of the program, giving Congress until early March to craft a legislative solution. As Congress dawdled, 15 states sued to prevent the administration from ending DACA. Week before last, however, seven states sued the administration from the other side, for failing to end DACA, which they argue is unconstitutional. Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry told NPR lawmakers could settle this dispute. Our objective,Ž he said, is to get Congress to act.Ž Good luck with that. Ross is solidly in the mainstream on DACA. In fact, its one of the few things most Americans can agree on. A month ago a Quinnipiac University poll revealed that 71 percent of Americans believe illegal immigration from Mexico is an important problem.Ž Yet 77 percent thought DACA enrollees should be allowed to remain in America and apply for citizenship. To that end, Ross is one of 59 sponsors „ 29 Republicans, 30 Demo crats „ of the Uniting and Securing America Act. The measure would permit DACA participants who have been in the country at least four years to gain permanent legal status if they enroll in higher edu cation, join the military or are gainfully employed, among other requirements. Once they achieve that, they could pursue citizenship just as immigrants who utilize existing legal channels. The bill offers a fair compromise, contains similar provisions as other DACA relief bills floating around Capitol Hill and has a solid base of bipartisan support in the House. Yet it hasnt moved an inch through the legislative mill since being introduced in January „ which suggests the competing lawsuits will force the Supreme Court, and not our lawmakers, to do t he dirty work for DACA enrollees. Its perplexing why this cant get done, but the DACA stalemate demonstrates the political process is as broken as our imm igration system. No wonder Dennis Ross wants out. This guest editorial was originally published in the Lakeland Ledger, a sister newspaper within GateHouse Media.Congress should pass DACA compromiseWith President Trump, you never know.Ž Those were the exact words a U.S. Senate legislative aide said to me when we were talking about President Trumps immigration views. The specific topic at the time was deferred action for childhood arrivals, DACA, which candidate Trump had vowed to end on Day 1Ž of his presidency, but didnt. In part because of President Trumps DACA dithering, the program and its future have since devolved into a political and legal quagmire. Trumps most recent fumbling and bumbling came during a Michigan rally when he said, to his bases horror but to the powerful agricultural lobbys delight, that we have to have your workers come in,Ž a reference to issuing H-2A agriculture visas, a program that its critics say is systematically abused. As Trump spoke, the Washington, D.C.-based National Council for Agricultural Employers, WAFLA, formerly the Washington [State] Farm Labor Association, the Washington [State] Growers League and the Fresno [California] County Farm Bureau could barely contain their collective joy. In fiscal year 2017, the U.S. Department of Labor approved 200,049 H-2A visas for foreign-born agricultural guest workers, up 20.7 percent from 165,741 in FY 2016. Just days before Trumps speech, the Labor Department settled with G Farms, a Maricopa County, Arizona, agribusiness, on the grounds that it had subjected its grossly underpaid workers to simply inhumaneŽ conditions. The no-cap H-2A visa should be a national embarrassment because it enables agricultural employers to import vulnerable, easily exploitable individuals. The farm industry takes advantage of the susceptible while neglecting its own responsibility to enter the 21st century through mechanization. Sharing in the blame is the federal government which, through the H-2A, sanctions cheap, pliant slave labor. In 2014, Indiana University published its study which found that, because employers control their visas, legal guest workers are guaranteed to be underpaid Growers contend that without easy access to cheap labor, crops will rot in the field.Ž Crops that dont rot, agricultural representatives claim, will soar to unaffordable retail prices A wealth of nonpartisan academic research undermines the advocacy groups allegations. In its 2016 overview of the effect of farm labor costs on consumer prices, National Geographic reported that if workers wages increased by 47 percent, grocery bills would go up just $21.15 a year, or $1.76 a month. Those findings are consistent with other academics conclusions, including those from Iowa State, the University of California Davis and the Economic Policy Institute.Feds sanction slave labor, 21st century style J o e G u z z a r d i Joe Guzzardi

Puji Kuswati, the mother, attacked worshippers at another church with her daughters, aged 9 and 12, who police said were all wearing suicide vests. The father, Dita Oepriarto, deto-nated a car bomb outside a third church. Police initially gave his name as Dita Futri-anto but corrected that based on his national identity card. All six died.Raith Yunanto, who lives two houses from the family, said they were always welcoming to her, a minority Christian. She said she went shopping with Kuswati at the local market and they often exchanged different types of food and fruit.There was nothing strange about the family, they were like other devout Muslim families,Ž she said. Their attitude and manner of dress were just like common Muslim people.ŽIts difficult for us to accept how they can commit such a barbaric act against Christians,Ž Yunanto said. The couple visited me when I gave birth and when my children were sick.ŽShe said she last saw mem-bers of the family when the daughters were riding bicycles with other children in front of her house on Satur-day afternoon, the day before the bombings.The eldest son, she said, was seen coming home from school activities wearing a colourful batik shirt thats symbolic of diversity in Indo-nesia, a country of more than 260 million with dozens of ethnic groups and languages.Dendri Oemiarti, Oepriartos younger sister, was wracked with grief when she spoke to The Associated Press on Monday and said her elderly parents were in a state of shock.What he has done has hurt us so deeply,Ž she said as tears flowed down her cheeks.What thoughts have influenced him? I do not understand. I do not know what changed my good brother to be so sadistic.Ž Oemiarti said she was very angry when she first heard about the church attacks and that children had been used to carry them out.I fainted when my sister, Dina, told me that the attack was done by our own brother,Ž she said.The last time she met her brother and his family was during Ramadan in 2017. She said their lives were busy and they only met about once a year and didnt talk about religion.Police initially said the family went to Syria to join the Islamic State group but later retracted that statement.Oepriarto, they said, was the leader of the Surabaya cell of Jemaah Anshorut Daulah, an Indonesian network of extremist groups that is affili-ated with IS.According to police, Oepri-arto was friends with the family that carried out Mon-days police headquarters bombing and a third family, three members of which died when homemade bombs exploded in their apartment on Sunday night.The familys nextdoor neighbor, Abi Akbar, said Oepriarto and his sons, Yusuf and Firman, like nearly all Muslim men in the neighbor-hood, usually attended dawn prayers at an unremarkable local mosque.But Akbar, 23, also said he had heard older men in the community comment that Oepriarto wasnt a mainstream Indonesian Muslim and objected to secular rituals such as raising the national flag or singing the Indonesian national anthem.In retrospect, Akbar said, one thing was different at dawn prayers on Sunday. Instead of customarily kissing their fathers hand after prayers, the boys and father hugged for a long time.They hugged like they were going to be separated,Ž Akbar said. But at that time we were not suspicious of anything because they are a family that is well known and normal.ŽJust a few hours later Oepriarto and his family and 12 other people were dead. More than 40 were injured.Kenzi Tapy Gani, a 21-year-old university student who lived near the family, described Oepriatro as a friendly and nice guy.ŽWe really didnt see it coming,Ž he said.The extremist family next doorNeighbors say family that bombed Indonesian churches well o friendlyA Muslim woman weeps during the wake for Sri Pudji Astutik, one of the victims of Sundays church attacks, at a funeral home Monday in Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia.

Tune in online at www.news-journalonline.com/ daytonamotormouths THREE THINGS TO WATCHKANSAS THREE THINGS WE LEARNEDWINNER: Kevin Harvick REST OF TOP 5: Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Kyle Larson FIRST ONE OUT: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. DARK HORSE: Kurt Busch DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Kansas was a preview of Charlotte, then see you later, Harvick.Is this the birth of a new restrictor-plate era?Possibly. In the entertainment world, people fall in love quickly with anything that works,Ž which, in this instance, would mean anything that brings a lot of paint-tradin and a three-wide dash down the stretch on the “ nal lap. If it works, many in the corner of“ ces will surely say, Why didnt we think about this sooner?ŽWhen will the NASCAR for saleŽ talk simmer down?That “ re will remain stoked until something major happens to douse it completely: Either news about a transaction, or news that it was all just a “ shing expedition and the lines are being pulled from the water. For the sake of the industry, one of those needs to come by midsummer.1. Pedal to metalKevin Harvick says it is pedal-to-themetal time after winning his “ fth Cup Series race in 12 starts. Harvick passed Martin Truex Jr. on the penultimate lap for Win 5. We know that were riding a momentum wave that is hard to come by, and you need to capitalize on it as many times as you can because it may never come again,Ž Harvick said. Ive never had it in my career, and Ive been doing this for 18 years.Ž2. Funk continuesAfter winning the season-opening Daytona 500 (doesnt that seem like a year ago?), Team Chevrolet continues to struggle. Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson has yet to lead a lap in 2018, and Chevys other top drivers are struggling with the new Camaro body style, the exception being Kyle Larson. Chase Elliott was 12th at Kansas. Just scratching and clawing to run mediocre,Ž Elliott said.3. All-Star weekendThe attention turns to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the next two weekends. This is a time where the team airplanes stay in the hangar and everybody sleeps in their own bed because this is more or less the home track for almost every race team (sorry, Denvers Furniture Row Racing).

In his previous two matches, Nishikori retired against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in Barcelona and lost to Novak Djokovic in Madrid.Nishikori hit only 18 win-ners to Lopezs 26 but had fewer unforced errors „ 19 to 31. It wasnt (an) easy match,Ž Nishikori said. It was windy. And he used a lot of slice and great serves. ... Luckily I got (the) first set.

By Ben NuckolsThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Supreme Court struck down a 26-year-old federal ban on sports betting on Monday, allowing states to decide whether they want to allow legal wagers on football, basketball, baseball, hockey and other games. Heres a look at what that means:So, when can i bet on sports?Soon, depending on where you live. Officials in three states „ Delaware, Mississippi and New Jersey „ have pledged to start accepting legal bets within weeks. Three others already had laws on the books authorizing sports betting in the event of a favorable Supreme Court decision, although there likely will be more debate about the specifics. More than a dozen other states either have active legislation to authorize sports gambling or have considered it in the past. Expect those discussions to ramp up, along with more aggressive lobbying in those states by sports book operators and the professional leagues. How will this change the fan experience?Once sports betting becomes more widely legal, fans can expect to have the opportunity to bet on their phones during games, a common practice in countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. Television ratings and subscriptions to streaming services could increase because fans are more interested in games that dont involve their hometown teams. And discussion of point spreads, over/unders and prop bets could become more common among broadcasters and journal-ists as they seek to remain relevant to how fans are thinking about sports. Will illegal bookies go out of business?Probably not, said Kate Lowenhar-Fisher, a Las Vegas-based attorney who chairs the gaming practice at Dickinson Wrig ht. Illegal bookies have longstanding relationships with their customers, some of whom prefer the anonymity of gambling offshore, and they dont have to pay taxes or fees. Plus, with states legalizing sports betting in a piecemeal fashion, illegal operators will continue to be more convenient for many bettors.Savvy businesspeople are also likely to create new gambling products that arent specifically addressed by state laws, just as daily fantasy sports companies did while the federal ban was in place.Americans will continue to be entrepreneurial, especially finding a way to evade all the compliance costs, tax costs, regulatory costs,Ž Lowenhar-Fisher said.Looking at where legal sports betting is headed By Steve MegargeeThe Associated PressThe NFL wants Congress to enact a framework for legalized sports betting in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that clears the way for more states to allow sports gambling.Supreme Court justices voted 6-3 on Monday to strike down a 1992 law that barred most state-autho-rized sports gambling. Before the Supreme Court ruling, Nevada was the only state that allowed people to bet on the results of a single game.Congress has long recognized the potential harms posed by sports betting to the integrity of sporting contests and the public confidence in these events,Ž the NFL said in a statement. Given that history, we intend to call on Congress again, this time to enact a core regulatory framework for legalized sports betting.ŽAll the major leagues responded to a ruling that figures to have far-reaching implications throughout the sports world. The NHL noted that today paves the way to an entirely different landscape „ one in which we have not previously operated.ŽNBA Commissioner Adam Silver, a supporter of legalizing sports gambling, said his league would remain active in ongoing discussions with state legislaturesŽ about expanding wagering options.Silver also said the league would like to see a federal framework instead of a state-by-state system. The NBA once opposed expanded sports betting but has long said it supports robust regulation.The NBA and Major League Baseball have argued in recent months for a 1 percent cut of proceeds if legalized sports betting expands across the country, saying part of that money would be needed for additional compliance and enforcement efforts within the game.As each state considers whether to allow sports betting, we will continue to seek the proper protections for our sport, in partnership with other professional sports,Ž Major League Baseball said in a statement.Keith Whyte, the executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling, believes any governmental body and sports league that receives a direct percentage or portion of sports betting rev-enue must also dedicate funds to prevent and treat gambling problems.Some of that 1 percent of betting fees is going to come from people with uncontrollable gambling problems,Ž Whyte said. We believe by taking a cut of this money, (the leagues would) put themselves in the position of having to do something to reduce those costs. Great profits come with great responsibility.ŽMLB said it would continue to support legislation that cre-ates air-tight coordination and partnerships between the state, the casino opera-tors and the governing bodies in sportsŽ toward protecting the integrity of the game. Major League Soccer issued a statement seeking similar cooperation.Although Major League Soccer is supportive of todays Supreme Court decision, we also believe that it is critical that state legislatures and other regulatory bodies work closely with the professional sports leagues in the United States to develop a regula-tory framework to protect the integrity of each of our respec-tive sports,Ž the MLS said in its statement. We look forward to being a part of that process.ŽPlenty of leagues already have taken steps to make sure its players are educated on the issue.For example, last year the PGA Tour hired Genesis Sports to help with its new Integrity ProgramŽ that began at the start of the year. The program requires players on all six cir-cuits the PGA Tour manages to take part in an online tuto-rial that, among other things, illustrates some of the far-reaching effects of gambling.We believe that regulation is the most effective way of ensuring integrity in competition, protecting con-sumers, engaging fans and generating revenue for government, operators and leagues,Ž the PGA Tour said in a statement.The Supreme Court ruling will impact college sports as well as the pro leagues. Donald Remy, the NCAAs chief legal officer, said the organiza-tion is reviewing the Supreme Courts decision and that we will adjust sports wagering and championship policies to align with the direction from the court.ŽThe NCAA currently doesnt hold NCAA Tournament games or any other NCAA-run events in Nevada because of its legal gambling. Las Vegas is home to the annual Las Vegas Bowl as well as the Pac-12 mens basketball tournament and o ther tournaments, which arent run by the NCAA itself.The NCAA said 24 percent of NCAA male student-ath-letes and about 5 percent of female student-athletes in 2016 reported they had wagered on sports for money within the previous year, which would violate NCAA bylaws. Just below 2 percent of the men participating in the 2016 survey met what the NCAA termed as standard diagnostic criteria for prob-lem gambling.Reactions to the Supreme Court ruling across the sports world werent limited to the league offices. The athletes themselves also were wondering about the possible implications of increased legal sports gambling.NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski tweeted he was tornŽ on the Supreme Courts decision. Keselowski said it should be great for our sport, but Ive also seen gam-bling ruin lives.Ž If you choose to gamble on me or anyone else, please be responsible, and if you need help, get help,Ž Keselowski added.NFL looks to Congress on sports gambling ruling SPORTS TICKER NFL footballs sit on the “ eld during warm ups before an NFL playoff game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jan. 14 in Pittsburgh. The NFL wants Congress to enact a framework for legalized sports betting in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that clears the way for more states to allow gambling.

This simple meal illustrates sophisticated gastronomic principles, and thanks to its culinary stature, as well as some other unique attributes, the hamburger is also in a position to teach us something else: how to shrink the carbon footprint of our meals. Beef is increasingly regarded as the most environmentally destructive form of human protein, thanks to the greenhouse gases released by cattle and the production of their food. Some grazing advocates have argued that properly managed cattle can be carbon-neutral, and the newly released results of a fiveyear study „ a collaboration between the University of Michigan and the Union of Concerned Scientists „ support that notion. Only about 1 percent of American beef is currently grass-fed, and its an open question as to whether beef eaters will stomach this change. They would have to agree to eat grassfed beef, which is often leaner and tougher than its feedlot-finished counterpart. And they would also have to accept eating less, because healthy grazing practices would only produce about half the beef per acre compared to current practices. The price, meanwhile, would likely rise. Hamburger nullifies these concerns, as well as the one nobody is talking about: Americans would need to accept buying their meat frozen, not fresh. Fresh is not best for meat The idea that fresh meat is somehow superior to meat thats spent months in the freezer is a notion as deeply rooted as it is unsupported. Unless that attitude changes, grass-fed beef will never be more than a niche product. Heres why. Feedlot beef can be supplied year-round, on demand. Whenever meat is required to fulfill an order, fat cows are shipped to slaughter, and meat is available, even in the dead of winter. But a grass-fed beef supplier is at a serious disadvantage trying to compete. The ranchers cattle are standing around eating hay all winter, while those feedlot cows are eating corn and soy. The grass-fed animals weigh less than they did the previous summer, because hay is not as nutritious as green grass. Thanks to their fat reserves from the previous summer, grass-fed animals make it through the winter fine, but as those reserves are drained, the meat loses quality. Grass-fed beef is of the highest quality when slaughtered in summer, at peak fattiness. That is when the producer has the most meat per animal to sell, and the consumer gets the richest meat. Hamburger offers a solution to this and every other obstacle to grass-fed beef. Unlike more prestigious cuts, burger can be thawed very quickly: Just drop a frozen pack in a bowl of room temperature water. As a hunter, I do this regularly with my deer and elk burger, and its some of the finest eating there is, year-round. So its perplexing to see Wendys making such a big deal of its 100% fresh, never frozenŽ burger promise. The only advantage of raw meat is the convenience. You can take it home and cook it. But in terms of quality or safety, raw meat might as well be called rotting meat, because this is what happens is soon as meat is no longer attached to a living animal. Unless its frozen or otherwise preserved. The perfect mouthful Served on a bun with trimmings, the burger succeeds and satisfies thanks to the sophisticated convergence of flavors that are presented to the mouth in just the right proportions. The meat itself tastes good, but the nibble of onion is necessary as well, as are the munch of pickle, crunch of lettuce and juicy gush of ripe tomato. The hamburger is a laboratory for exploring how different tastes can come together in your mouth to provide pleasure. Alas, if there is a downside to the classic presentation of the hamburger, its that once the first bite is taken, the magnificent structure of the hamburger sandwich begins to break down. With each subsequent violation it appears less attractive. Meanwhile, it becomes more difficult to maintain the desired proportions of meat and trimmings in each bite. I prefer to serve my burgers deconstructed. That way I can arrange each bite properly, without struggle to remain in control of an unstable sandwich. The bites can be delivered by spoon, fingertips, on a toasted sesame seed bun or in lettuce leaves. The burger meat itself, I mix with salt and garlic powder and a little bit of olive oil before cooking. Chopped parsley or other herbs are a great addition to ground grass-fed meat as well. When its time to eat, I begin with a bite-sized piece of meat and use a dab of mayo to stick a piece of onion to it. Then I eat it, and while Im chewing Ill adjust the mouthful by taking nibbles of pickle, tomato, roasted green chile and whatever else I think will help.

But, when she gets the opportunity to get out, she indulges in having a good time.She was one of several seniors in attendance at Fri-days Senior Expo held at Holmes County Ag Center and hosted by Holmes County Council on Aging (HCCOA).I really enjoy it: the gospel singing, the dancing and most important all the little (door prizes) they give you to help the senior citizens,Ž Hanag-riff said, projecting her voice over the music. Just joining together for a good time.ŽHCCOA Coordinator Michael Brown said the event coalesces a number of agen-cies from across the county that can provide a line of sup-port to meet seniors needs. For example, onsite Friday was a representative from Florida Telecommunications Relay, Inc., which provides phones with special accommodations for individuals who are mute and/or hard of hearing. On the other side of the room, Hearing Life out of Marianna, conducted free hearing tests and offered information on special hear-ing devices.Event organizers estimated about 150 seniors attended the event.And Hanagriffs best friend Betty Cooper, 63, was one of them. Its a lot of fun,Ž she said, noting it was her second year attending. I just like the singing and entertainment.ŽWhile getting out is great, Brown said the programs success hinges on keeping the seniors in their homes.Theyre at their homes and we want to keep it like that,Ž Brown said. Theyll be hap-pier, healthier, spiritually and emotionally.

** B2 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser By Alex VeigaThe Associated PressThe major U.S. stock indexes eked out small gains Monday after a late-afternoon pullback weighed on small-company shares.The market had been broadly higher earlier in the day on hopes that trade tensions were easing between the U.S. and China. But much of that rally faded, leaving decliners on the New York Stock Exchange outnumbering risers.Gains by health care and energy stocks outweighed losses in real estate companies and other decliners. Casino operators and equipment companies got a boost from a Supreme Court decision that cleared the way for states to legalize sports betting.The S&P 500 index added 2.41 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,730.13. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 68.24 points, or 0.3 percent, to 24,899.41. The Nasdaq composite rose 8.43 points, or 0.1 percent, to 7,411.32. Small-company stocks fell. The Russell 2000 index lost its early gains, sliding 6.45 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,600.34.The major stock indexes latest gains add to the markets solid run this month. The S&P 500, the benchmark for the broader stock market, had its best weekly gain since early March last week.The indexes got off to a strong start Monday, as investors hoped for reduced trade tensions between the U.S. and China after President Donald Trump tweeted over the weekend that he would help Chinese telecommunications company ZTE get back into business.ŽZTEs Hong Kong-traded shares have been suspended since U.S. authorities banned it last month for seven years from importing U.S. components in a case involving illegal exports to North Korea and Iran. But Trump said too many jobs in China are at stake after the U.S. government sanctions cut off access to ZTEs American suppliers.Stocks eke out small gains Chinese men pass by a ZTE building May 8 in Beijing, China. President Donald Trumps weekend social media musings about China injected new uncertainty into Washingtons punishment of Chinese tech giant ZTE and planned trade talks between the two countries. [NG HAN GUAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Paul WisemanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ A long-running dispute between American regulators and Chinese telecom company ZTE may have handed Presi-dent Donald Trump some unexpected lever-age in avoiding a trade war with Beijing.Trumps tweet Sunday that he was working with President Xi Jinping of China to put ZTE back into business, fastŽ after U.S. sanc-tions threatened ZTEs existence and 70,000 Chinese jobs caught many trade-watchers by surprise.Too many jobs in China lost,Ž Trump tweeted. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!ŽThe overture came just as Vice Premier Liu He is flying to Washington for talks aimed at heading off a mutually harmful battle between the worlds two biggest economies and just before U.S. compa-nies plan to plead during three days of hearings for a resolution to the dispute.Trade analysts say it is highly unusual for a president to intercede in a case brought by the Commerce Department and to mix regulatory sanctions with trade negotiations. But they also note that Trumps offer to rescue ZTE, which makes cellphones and other telecommuni-cations equipment, has the potential to clear the way for progress.Its a way to unlock negotiations,Ž said Wendy Cutler, a former U.S. trade negotiator specializing in Asia and now vice president at the Asia Society Policy Institute.The United States has proposed impos-ing tariffs on up to $150 billion in Chinese prod-ucts to punish Beijing for forcing American companies to hand over technology in exchange for access to the Chinese markets. In retaliation, Beijing is threatening tariffs on $50 billion in U.S. products.Trumps tweet creates an atmosphere where theres more hope for reaching an agreement on trade,Ž said David Dollar, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a former official at the World Bank and the U.S. Treasury Department.The United States also needs Chinas support as it prepares for talks with North Korea that are intended to persuade the Pyongyang regime to abandon nuclear weapons.Commerce and ZTE last year settled charges that the Chinese company sold sensitive telecommunications equipment to Iran and North Korea in violation of U.S. sanctions. ZTE agreed to plead guilty and pay about $1 billion in fines.Last month, Commerce accused ZTE of violating the agreement and blocked ZTE from importing American components for seven years. The department said ZTE had misled regulators: Instead of disciplining all employ-ees involved in the sanctions violations, Commerce said, ZTE paid some of them full bonuses and then lied about it.Get it doneBy Elliot SpagatThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Immigration officials have sharply increased audits of companies to verify that their employees are authorized to work in the country, signaling the Trump administrations crackdown on illegal immigration is reaching deeper into the workplace to create a culture of compli-anceŽ among employers who rely on immigrant labor.Expansive plans also have been drafted for a long-term push to scrutinize employers hiring practices more closely.Under a 1986 federal law, companies must verify their employees are authorized to work in the United States by reviewing their documents and verifying to the government the employees identity and work authorization. If employers are found to hire someone with-out proper documents, the employers may be subject to administrative fines and, in some cases, criminal prosecution.The recent focus on employers comes after a surge of deportation arrests of workers that started immediately after Trump took office in January 2017. The crackdown is likely to please immigration hawks among Trumps supporters but may alienate industries and companies that rely on immigrant labor.Immigration crackdown shifts to employers as audits surge World marketsHow key international stock markets performed: AmsterdamAEX BrusselsBEL20 FrankfurtDAX Hong KongHang Seng LondonFTSE 100MilanFTSE MIB ParisCAC40 SydneyASX All Ordinaries TokyoNikkei ZurichSwiss Market Index % CHANGE PREVIOUS CLOSE TODAYS CLOSE ASSOCIATED PRESS KEY 0.2% 562.26 563.52 0.0% 3,884.40 3,885.74 -0.2% 13,001.24 12,977.71 1.4% 31,122.06 31,541.08 -0.2% 7,724.55 7,710.98 0.3% 24,159.34 24,221.47 0.0% 5,541.93 5,540.68 0.3% 6,216.40 6,235.00 0.5% 22,758.48 22,865.86 0.1% 8,993.51 9,000.89 BUSINESSWHAT TO WATCH FOR TODAY€ Commerce Department releases retail sales data for April. € Treasury releases international money ” ows data for March.Trumps bid to help Chinese rm draws re but raises hopesMARKET WATCHDow 24,899.41 68.24 Nasdaq 7,411.32 8.43 S&P 2,730.13 2.41 Russell 1,600.34 6.45 NYSE 12,772.04 10.22COMMODITIES REVIEWGold 1,316.50 2.50 Silver 16.570 .106 Platinum 914.90 11.00 Copper 3.0785 .0165 Oil 70.96 0.26MARKET MOVERS€ Viacom Inc.: Down $1.48 to $28.74 „ CBS “ led a lawsuit against controlling shareholder National Amusements, a move that could block a combination of CBS and Viacom. € Acacia Communications Inc.: Up $2.75 to $34.25 „ President Donald Trump tweeted that the U.S. might ease sanctions on Chinese company ZTE, a major customer for Acacia.BRIEFCASENEW YORKSears: Committee explores sale of Kenmore, assetsSears Holdings Corp. is considering selling its storied Kenmore brand along with other related assets.The ailing company, which operates department stores under the Sears and Kmart names, says a spe-cial committee of its board is starting a formal process to explore the sale.

** B4 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserDo you know someone that works away from home? I work in an industry where people usually find themselves working for weeks away from home then taking a few weeks to be home with their families. Its a very common way of life to some people. In fact for several years, we even went on the road with my husband so that every night before my kiddos closed their eyes they could pray with their daddy. Its not an easy life. However its the very life that puts food on the table and raises up families. Occasionally there are things, situations in my day that bring me pause, and I see Jesus in my day. The mail that comes through the office is much and after they do a mail run, I usually end up with several boxes on a bench in my office. Boxes from online shopping or catalogs, and dont let men lie to you, they shop just as much as women. I have proof, the boxes are stacked high. In the middle of all those shipping boxes was one that stood out like a sore thumb. It carried a hand written label and it was decorated with bright marker pictures and messages on all sides. The messages when the box was rotated made a little cartoon. It was adorable. I didnt get too close because I try to respect peoples privacy but when the worker came to pick up his box, I got to watch. He literally couldnt wait to tear into it. As he opened it, several of his buddies gathered around to see what he got. From vitamins to chocolates to some movies and then hand written letters, his smile got bigger and bigger as his hand reached time and again into the box. It was a never-ending parade of loveliness. This man and his burly oil field worker friends were literally covered in oil and grease but were ooo-ing and ahhhh-ing over colored pictures torn from a coloring book and all the thoughtful touches his family had included in his box from home. I had to look away. Its one of those moments that you dont want to intrude on, the pure joy that came from such a simple thoughtful gesture from his family. Later on though, it kept popping into my head and I remember all the boxes my family and I packed up for our guy when he was active duty. Back before email was so easily available, we still wrote snail mail letters and assembled carefully thought out packages for him. The girls were tiny littles but they were constantly thinking of things they wanted to send their daddy. Every colored piece of paper, every note from their teachers (good and bad, bless their honest little hearts), we once mailed a half-eaten bag of skittles because we always shareŽ... it wasnt about the cost involved ... it was the time and the thoughts. Those packages would later evolve to include luxury items such as new pillowcases, the extra soft toilet paper and bags of beef jerky ... anything to make his life a little more comfortable as we was away. Its the same concept when you consider that someone spends a major portion of their time separated from their loved ones. Watching the happiness it brings got me to thinking? Have I sent the right cards? Have I took the time to pick up a few cards and pick a few people in my life that I think of often but seldom have time to reach out to? Have I made an effort to send them a note or a card letting them know: Im thinking of you ...  You popped into my head today and it made me smile ...  Im sorry we dont talk as much but I still giggle every time I think of you.Ž I need to send cards. Is there someone in your life that is working away from home? Grab a few things and send them a little package of love, hope and thoughtfulness.Ž Pick up a few cards and drop a line in the mail so that when someone is going through their bills, they find a little jewel.Box someone today K a l y n n B r a z e a l Kalynn Brazeal If you would like to include an event in this list, email information to: news@chipleypaper.com Otter Creek to host Twin Rivers PONCE DE LEON … Otter Creek Methodist Church will host Twin Rivers in concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 19.

WEST OBITUARIESCONTINUED FROM B5 HEALTHBy Mayo Clinic News Network When you have pain, theres nothing you want more than relief „ right now. For many people, that means reaching for the bottle of pain relievers in the medicine cabinet. Before treating pain yourself, however, you should understand where the pain is coming from. Some sources of pain are easier to decipher: You have a tension headache after a long day at your computer, or back pain after an afternoon of raking the yard or joint pain from arthritis. Other sources of pain are not as evident, especially when youre experiencing the pain for the first time, such as knee or hip pain when you are out for a walk, or when the pain lasts longer than usual, such as a stiff neck or lower back pain that doesnt subside. In addition to overthe-counter pain relievers, several simple lifestyle approaches also can be effective. Over-the-counter medications Youll find a large selection of pain relievers at your local store. These medications „ also called analgesics „ control pain by interfering with the way pain messages are developed, transmitted or interpreted. Over-the-counter pain medications can be effective at relieving many types of mild to moderate pain. There are two types of pain relievers: € Oral pain relievers That bottle of pain-relieving pills in your medicine cabinet likely contains aspirin, ibuprofen (e.g., Advil and Motrin IB) or naproxen sodium (e.g., Aleve). These medications are most effective for mild to moderate pain thats accompanied by swelling and inflammation, such as arthritis, sprains and strains. However, these types of medications can have serious side effects, including nausea, stomach pain, or stomach bleeding and ulcers. Large doses also can lead to kidney problems and high blood pressure. These risks are higher for older people, especially those over 75. Acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol) is another commonly used pain reliever. € Topical pain relievers Topical analgesics are creams, gels, sprays and patches that are applied to the skin at the area where you feel pain, such as on painful joints or strained muscles. Topical pain relievers, such as diclofenac (e.g., Voltaren and Solaraze) and salicylates (e.g., Bengay and Icy Hot) can reduce mild to moderate pain without serious side effects, in part because they are applied locally instead of being circulated through the body. They often are recommended for older people who have a greater risk of side effects from oral pain relievers. Applying heat and cold Sometimes relief can be a frozen bag of peas or a hot bath. This is because applying heat and cold often can ease joint pain, back strains, neck pain and other types of pain. Heres how these methods work: € Cold numbs pain by causing blood vessels to constrict, which reduces swelling. Thats why, when you experience an injury „ whether its a bee sting or a sprained ankle „ icing is often a good first choice. You can use an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables, or you can submerge the affected area in a container of ice water. € Heat, on the other hand, is a muscle relaxer. Heat loosens tense muscles, which relieves pain. Heat also increases blood flow to an injury, which promotes healing. Sources of heat can be a heating pad or a warm bath. You may find that cold or heat provides more relief. Or you can alternate the two, ending with the cold treatment. Simply applying heat or cold often doesnt completely resolve pain. Its more likely to lessen its severity and reduce inflammation. But, in many cases, a heating pad or ice pack can be applied in addition to other pain treatments, such as analgesics, to increase the chances of relief.Home remedies: Self-care approaches to treating pain B6 5-3529 IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE FOURTEENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR HOLMES COUNTY, FLORIDA CASE NO.: 2017CA000198 U.S. BANK TRUST, N.A., AS TRUSTEE FOR LSF9 MASTER PARTICIPATION TRUST, Plaintiff, vs. THE ESTATE OF KEITH A.
