Pollack did not attend the meeting but said in a letter he was resigning to help elect candidates to the Broward County School Board to ensure that our schools are safe.ŽOn May 15, Ryan Petty and Lori Alhadeff, both of whom lost daughters in the shooting, held a joint press conference announcing their candidacies for the county school board.Pollack also said that he will spend time on an independent investigation that will, get to the bottom of who was responsible for the atrocities that occurredŽ and hold legally accountable agencies and individuals responsible for the shooting.Im sad.

** A2 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiserwas a valuable member of this team. We liked his perspective, and it saddens me that hes not here,Ž said Max Schachter, father of victim Alex Schachter and a com-mission member. Hopefully, the governor will pick another very well-qualified candi-date that can add experience and value to this commission so we can accomplish a lot of good things.ŽThe law passed after the shooting included a series of steps designed to improve school safety. The commis-sion, which will meet again Friday, discussed some of those issues as it looks for ways to prevent other mass shootings.Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, who is chair-man of the commission, said the new law requires every school in the state to have an on-site security risk assess-ment known as the Florida Safe Schools Assessment Tool by Aug.1. This assessment involves looking at facility vulnerabilities and site-hardening needs.Also, the appointment of a school safety officer and school safety specialist in all districts is required by July 1. New mental-health assis-tance must be implemented for the start of the 2018-2019 academic year.The Department of Education must establish an evidence-based youth mental health awareness and assistance curriculum for students,Ž Gualtieri said. By the start of the school year, students must disclose prior mental health bills.ŽBy having records of men-tal-health referrals, school districts can refer students to mental health services. Additionally, each school district is required to have a student crime-watch pro-gram. The program allows anonymous reporting to public-safety and school officials.Gualtieri said he has 800 pages of records on Park-land shooter Nikolas Cruzs mental health.I can tell you with abso-lute, objective certainty that through 2017 to 2018, Henderson Behavioral Health (a mental-health provider) had no contact with (Nikolas) Cruz whatsoever,Ž said Gualtieri. The last contact was in December 2016, while Cruz was evaluated under the Baker Act in October 2016.ŽState Vice Chancellor of Public Schools Jacob Oliva presented the board with changes to the Zero Tolerance Policy for Crime and Victimization. Changes include school districts adopting policies that require threat-assessment teams to consult with law enforce-ment when students exhibit patterns of behavior based on previous acts or sever-ity of acts that would pose a threat to school safety.Zero-tolerance policies would not be applied to petty acts. Incidents required to be reported to law enforcement are battery, homicide, kidnapping, sexual battery and weapons possession. Incidents that may not involve consultation with law enforcement include bullying, fighting, sexual harassment, harassment and tobacco.Petty, a commission member and the father of victim Alaina Petty, asked Oliva if it was the Florida Department of Educations role to track compliance with incident reporting or who would be responsible for that.Good question,Ž said Oliva. The department requires dis-tricts to submit that data and adhere to timelines because we have to report some of those elements that federally determine those incidents and, I guess, analyzing the data at a local level. We get what the districts send us.ŽAlso during the meeting, Bob Kolasky, deputy assistant secretary for the U.S. Depart-ment of Homeland Security, explained best practices for schools for active assailant prevention and response. Kolasky said his department is studying ways to enhance school safety to prevent events similar to the Broward shooting.A lot of what we talk about is things that happen when someone with a gun gets there, but train and be ready for someone with a gun to get there,Ž Kolasky said. School security needs to be designed with a learning environment in mind. Making sure that school is a place where kids learn is important.ŽKolasky mentioned the If You See Something, Say SomethingŽ program, which can alert law enforcement or school officials to problems. He said he discussed it with his daughter and that we must break the culture of not tell-ing on othersŽ to help prevent tragedies.Florida Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, asked Kolasky about the Stop the BleedŽ program, which trains people to perform triage before first responders arrive on scene. Kolasky said the program would increase the likelihood of survival.Schachter said that the Stop the Bleed Program has started in Broward County.Westglades (a middle school next to Douglas) already has the kits and already trained the teachers and were in the process of doing it at Douglas,Ž Schachter said.After raising a question about where the Department of Homeland Security stands on national school-safety standards, Schachter tear-fully asked Kolasky to bring a message back to Washington: Please visit the site of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.Whats so important in all of this is the funding, and we would certainly love the federal governments help in increasing school safety,Ž Schachter he said. Even though were appreciative of the Stop School Violence Act, $75 million for the entire United States is absolutely ridiculous. We need a lot of help. We need a lot of money. Just for one ballistic hardwood door and glass is $3,900 for one door.Ž SAFETYFrom Page A1sisters and mother is part of her anchor."It's made us closer; we've worked hard to work as a team," Bush said. "We're her care team, we'll be there when she goes to have her trans-plant we'll all be there."None of her sisters qualified to donate their kidneys. And though her mom was healthy enough, she is too old in age."I could not do it with-out these guys because the fundraisers I could not stay outside all day long, in the sun anymore," Angie said. "They just took over, they do everything and I'm thankful for them."Avid community volunteer Randy Adams, also of Bonifay, is soon to be on the list. He will go for evaluation at Shand's on June 28. His sup-port team or motivational force: his three grandkids. "My grandbabies," he said, tearing. "I want to watch them grow and my faith in God.""If someone went to a center and seen the people who are in there I am so blessed," he noted.Adams exuded optimism Monday afternoon. His earto-ear smile contagiously brought a smile to the faces of passersby at Holmes County Council on Aging. He volunteered Monday after he came from a four-hour dialysis ses-sion. He's a regular volunteers for 4-H and the Wild Turkey Federation. His hobbies are hunting and fishing."It scared me initially because I didn't know any-thing about it, but after going through my first few weeks of dialysis, I realized how truly blessed I am," he said. "It's not a death sentence.""I've been dealt a bad hand," he added, "but I am blessed."Angie Steely recently got an access point for dialysis treatment installed in her arm. She's positive the Lord will provide a kidney soon; however, her countenance somewhat showed her discontentment with the thought of routine dialysis for the remainder of her life."She lives with me and I see what goes on," said Vera Steely, her mother. "It's just heartbreaking for your child."But even when things could look down, they look up. Angie Steely's support team is a sign that her anchor is sure."It's changed us all and we've watched Angie grow and mature and God has really worked on her life," Bush said."If it was someone else in the situation, she would" give her own kidney, said her other sister Kim Wood.To become a donor, talk to your primary care physician and/or go to the National Kidney Foundation's website To donate money to Angie Steely, go to First Federal Bank, and mention Angie Steely.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Netflix recently announced a deal with former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, which will feature the Obamas working both in front of the camera and behind it. Perhaps instead of video production, though, our previous president should become a writer. As shown last week, hes already skilled at crafting fiction. Speaking in Las Vegas, Obama told a crowd of tech execs, I didnt have scandals, which seems like it shouldnt be something you brag about.Ž If you look at the history of the modern presidency,Ž he continued, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. Its a big deal.Ž Well, that line „ which Obama began preaching even before President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January 2017 „ would be a big deal if it were true. But then again, the national media by and large determine what is and isnt scandalous, based on what draws their attention, and Obama sycophants in journalism and our political culture certainly have worked diligently to convince us our 44th president was as pure as driven snow. We disagree with Obama about his scandalfree legacy. On Sept. 11, 2012, terrorists attacked the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. The U.S. ambassador and three other Americans died. Obama administration officials, including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, immediately blamed the attack on spontaneous outrage over an anti-Muslim video. But Clinton, for example, privately blamed alQaida and noted in a Sept. 12, 2012, email the attack had nothing to do with the film.Ž In June 2014 the public learned that the Veterans Administration was fudging records on 120,000 veterans medical appointments. Those vets were denied timely care, or were not cared for at all, resulting in the death of at least 35 veterans in Phoenix alone. The Obama administration, supposedly in the name of national security, spied on or seized records from reporters at Fox News, the Associated Press and CBS News, and threatened a New York Times reporter with prison for not revealing a source who allegedly slipped him classified information. James Clapper, Obamas national intelligence director, and John Brennan, Obamas CIA chief, both lied to Congress about spying on everyday Americans and Senate staffers. In addition, Obama scuttled an FBI investigation into drug-trafficking by Hezbollah before the nuclear deal with Iran was finalized; IRS officials targeted conservative groups seeking tax exempt status ahead of the 2012 election; the Justice Department in 2013 began pressuring banks to halt business with gun dealers, payday lenders, pawn shops and others considered unsavory; the Energy Department gave solar-panel maker Solyndra a $535 million taxpayer-backed loan in 2009, yet the firm went belly up two years laterl. Were not saying the national media did not report on these things. But these episodes got nowhere near the intense negative coverage of all things Trump. A scandal typically may be in the eye of the beholder. Obama hid his scandals in plain sight, including the claim there were no scandals, and yet he and most of the media still cannot see them. This editorial first appeared in The News Herald, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Obamas scandalfree claim scandalousToday I hopelessly burned a batch of fig preserves, those hard to come by fruit that are, so much loved by some of us, especially Nancy Belser. We dont have a fig tree any more and I am fortunate enough to have friends Poca Mae and Dan Hatcher, who pick them and bring them to me or allow me to pick theirs. My cousin Bobby Bryant also shares them with me sometimes as does Billy Pouncy. I carefully weigh them in batches, eight-pounds to the batch, and freeze them to be made into preserves when needed. All my life, I never knew how my mother made fig preserves. She always just poured a pile of sugar over a big boiler full of fresh washed figs, put them on the stove and like magic, preserves of the exact consistency with juice of the right thickness came out. I also watched my friend Margaret Treadwell do the same thing. She had a pan and a boiler which she used for her proportion of fruit to sugar and hers turned out like my Mamas. After we started the blueberry farm and I started selling jelly, jams and syrup, a lady from Gritney provided me with a lot of figs. But she died, I suppose, and I lost that source. In the early stage of the jelly/ preserve business, a good blueberry customer, the late Mrs. Bartow Saunders, (Syble) gave me a fail-proof (until today) recipe for fig preserves which I will include at the end of this article. Chalk it up to old age, I suppose, but todays failure reminded me of another experience of fig cooking in my youth. As I said, my mother had her method which I never learned. Since fig preserves were my Dads favorite breakfast sweet, he meticulously picked the figs, being careful to harvest them every other day so that overripe ones werent there to attract birds. In the summer months, preserving figs was an every-other day chore. One of those days, my mama had her figs started on the wood stove and she and Daddy had to go to town, a funeral, or somewhere. She gave my sister and me strict instructions to keep the fire going in the wood stove. Do not let the fire go down on my figs,Ž she emphasized. We were to understand that letting the fire die would stop the figs from cooking and most likely cause them to stick to the pot when reheated. So we kept the fire going. She never told us how to know when they had cooked long enough, so we kept the fire going. When our parents returned, the sweet smell of fig preserves filled the house. They were not burned as mine were today, but were candied and would be difficult to get out of the jar. Now our Dad delighted in humiliating my teenage sister and me. Mortifying would be a better outcome. My mother lived in a constant state of mortification at some of his behaviors such as talking loudly at inappropriate times. Ruining a batch of fig preserves was a pretty serious infraction and he found a perfect excuse for mortification of his two teenage daughters. I was dating Jack and Minnie Lee was engaged to James Russ. It wasnt long before the guys each came a calling. The pot of overcooked figs were still on the cold stove, so our Dad accompanied the young men to the kitchen to show them what good cooks we were. I dont recall what James response was to this demonstration, but Jack emphatically stated that candied figs was exactly the way he liked them. Here is Mrs. Saunders recipe which she said came from the late Mrs. Primm, an early Bonifay citizen.€ 8 pounds of ripe “ gs, stemmed, washed and drained € 5 pounds of sugar € 1 and cups water In a heavy pot dissolve the sugar in the water on high heat. Pour in the washed “ gs. Bring to a boil and cook on medium heat for 1 and hours till syrup tests thick when cooled. (A teaspoon of butter will help keep the syrup from boiling over.) Set aside and allow to plump overnight. Then reheat gradually and pack in sterile jars and seal. Will keep inde“ nitely when seal is intact. I omit the plumping step and pack them directly in the jars and seal. (The recipe is on one of my brochures at the Blueberry farm.)HAPPY CORNERHe married her anyway Hazel Tison Chalk it up to old age, I suppose, but todays failure reminded me of another experience of g cooking in my youth.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not autho-rized to brief the media.MEXICO CITYHurricane Bud g rows to Category 3 in Paci“ cHurricane Bud grew to Category 3 force off Mexicos Pacific coast Monday, though forecasters said it was likely to weaken before a possible brush with the resort-dotted southern tip of the Baja California penin-sula late in the week. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Bud had maximum sustained winds of 120 mph at midafternoon Monday. It was centered about 440 miles south-southeast of the tip of the Baja peninsula and was moving northwest at 7 mph. Forecasters said the storm could strengthen a bit more before a slow weakening trend started Tuesday. The Associated PressBy Sam Mednick and Lauran NeergaardThe Associated PressMBANDAKA, Congo „ Irene Mboyo Mola spent 11 days caring for her husband as he died of Ebola in a hospital where she said nurses were too scared to get close. She helped him to the bathroom, picked up his feverish body when he lost his balance, and reinserted an IV that fell out of his bleeding arm.He told me all he could see was death,Ž recalls Mola, a 30-year-old mother of six, as she sat slumped on the floor in her small hut. That close contact put Mola at high risk of getting a disease that has no cure and kills about half of those infected. But now, as Congo battles the most seri-ous Ebola outbreak since the devastating 2014 epidemic in West Africa, health workers have something new to offer: a vaccine.With thousands of doses dispatched to front-line health workers, the world is watching to see if a promising but still experimental vaccine might help stop this terrifying disease faster than traditional measures doctors have tried since Ebola was identified 40 years ago.Even if the vaccine helps, there are serious hurdles. The shots must be transported deep into forests with few paved roads without it spoiling in the heat. Health workers have to identify and track down anyone whos had contact with a sick person. Hardest of all, they must persuade a scared and wary population that shots pushed by foreign-ers could save their lives.Communities themselves must be at the center of the response if the activities are going to be effective,Ž said Jonathan Polonsky of the World Health Organization, a surveillance coordinator in Mbandaka, a city of more than 1 million in northwestern Congo.Molas six children have all been vaccinated. But she refused, telling government social workers and WHO workers that she didnt believe her husband died from Ebola. She said the hospital never showed her records confirm-ing hed tested positive for the virus.Theres no guarantee the long-sought vaccine will help stop the outbreak. But Congos health ministry and the WHO rushed in 7,500 doses, created by the Public Health Agency of Canada and owned by Merck.The plan: Whats called ring vaccination,Ž to find and vaccinate everyone whos had direct contact with a sick person „ the first ringŽ „ and then contacts of those people, too, to break the chain of infection.Last month, 11-year-old German Umba and her 6-year-old brother lost their father to Ebola. Both were vaccinated. But a shot alone doesnt end the worry. U.N. workers monitor the children several times a day for fevers, an early symptom, until the incubation period passes.Friday, WHO emergency response chief Peter Salama said many people vaccinated in Mbandaka received the shots more than 10 days ago, meaning theyre now protected „ the vaccine has had time to kick in.Finding people who need vaccination is much harder in the remote area of Iboko, where a new case was just reported. Shoddy infrastruc-ture adds to the challenge.The roads are so bad that even if a person gets vaccinated it can be too late and they can still die,Ž said Rosy Boyekwa Yamba, a regional representative for the Ministry of Health in Mbandaka.It can take days to travel just 100 miles to reach remote areas where Ebola still is spreading. The vaccine must be kept at a temperature of minus 76 to minus 112 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 60 to minus 80 degrees Celsius), and can only be kept in mobile freezers for up to seven days.Vaccine raises hopes, doubts in CongoAt a glanceThe vaccine was found highly promising in testing a few years ago, when the epidemic in West Africa killed more than 11,000 people between 2014 and 2016. A boy sits in a tree June 1 in a neighborhood where three people died of Ebola last month in Mbandaka, Congo. For the “ rst time since the Ebola virus was identi“ ed more than 40 years ago, a vaccine has been dispatched to front-line health workers in an attempt to combat the epidemic from the onset.

** A10 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser FOODBy Ari LeVauxMore Content NowIn preparation for summer, I have purchased a high-speed blender. Green smoothies was the stated goal, and soon enough, the heat of summer will bring multitudes of harvest goodness that my blender will help me sip through a straw. But now, at the start of the growing season, that machine seems like overkill. The greens of spring are tender. Even curly kale, which can usually double as steel wool, crunches delicately. But my Vitamix is hardly gathering dust. Its grinding nuts. And water. And spices. What you need Theres currently heated debate over whether plant-based beverages like soy milk or almond milk can legally be advertised as milk,Ž which is legally defined by the FDA as material from the glands of lactating mammals. The dairy industry wants the FDA to enforce that definition, hoping it will help its fortunes. But whatever term is ultimately applied, these plant-based beverages do a lot of what milk does, and are growing in popularity for a variety of reasons. The homemade versions, especially of nut milks, are spectacular. Properly made, they are superior to storebought on every metric, including flavor, texture, all around milkiness, even cost. And they dont take long to prepare. The blender doesnt have to be a Vitamix like mine. But it must be a high-speed unit. The Blendtec does a good job. The Ninja does, too, though its harder to clean. I really like the speed control of the Vitamix, being a dial rather than buttons. Its akin to the difference between driving stick vs. automatic, or cooking on gas vs. electric. But the point is: A regular blender wont cut it. Which is all by way of saying: A good blender is worth the investment. The other thing you need is a food-grade cloth strainer. I have an official nut milk bag, which was made for this purpose and purchased at the local hippie food store. Its for straining out the skins and fibers and other grainy interruptions to the milky experience. And of course you need nuts. Raw and unsalted. My four favorites are almonds, hazelnuts, coconut and cashew, which isnt technically a nut. Each of these nut milks has its strengths. If you can find almonds that havent been steamed or irradiated, you can get them to sprout before making the almond milk, which is fun. Fresh, sprouted almond milk has the most aromatic flavor of any nut milk except perhaps coconut. Hazelnut milks are creamy with a slightly bitter flavor. Cashew milk is the silkiest, with the creamiest feel, while coconut milk has actual fat you can skim. How to make To make a batch of nut milk, soak a cup of nuts in a quart of water. Almonds can soak for a few days to sprout them (changing the water every 6 hours), while other nuts can soak for about four hours to overnight. Coconut doesnt need to soak „ just pry out the meat, then into the blender. Put the soaked nuts in a highspeed blender with about six ice cubes and 3-6 cups of water, depending on how thick or thin you want it to be. Start on low speed, and raise the speed incrementally until its going full blast. Let it go on high for about 30 seconds, and turn off. Pour it into your nut milk bag or whatever system you have, and filter out the solids. Thats it. You can lightly season it with sweetener, a pinch of salt, a drop of vanilla. Start light, and explore the possibilities. My own explorations led me into the fragrant arms of golden milk, an Ayurvedic (ancient Indian) beverage that is having a moment. A milk-based drink with turmeric, ginger, black pepper and other spices, the flavor is a bit reminiscent of chai tea, and each cook will have a different formulation. It can be served hot or cold, mild or spicy, raspy or smooth. Golden Cashew Milk€ 1 cup raw cashews, soaked € 9 small pitted dates; about cup € 1 cubic inch of fresh turmeric, peeled and sliced € 1 cubic inch of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced € teaspoon ground cardamom € teaspoon ground black pepper € teaspoon ground cinnamon € teaspoon vanilla € teaspoon nutmeg € teaspoon salt € To taste: Cayenne powder or thinskinned red chile € Optional: Pinch or more of powdered turmeric for color Add the dates, turmeric, ginger and spices to the blender, along with six ice cubes. Drain the cashews and pour on top with some fresh water. Grind, “ lter. Serve chilled. NOTE: The turmeric, ginger, black pepper and chile pepper can be halved for a much milder, yet still very aromatic experience.Milk it A good blender and some nuts and spices „ youve got a homemade treat EASY RECIPEJULIAS MARTINISeveral sources say Julia Childs favorite martini was the Upside Down Martini. This recipe comes from southernliving. com. € 3/4 ounce gin € 3 3/4 ounces vermouth € Lemon twist Combine the gin and vermouth in a mixing glass with ice and stir.

** A12 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserIN THE KITCHENCapturing the three avors of Turtles in a cakeWhen Im talking Turtles, Im not thinking about the creepy, crawly kind. No, my palate is mentally tasting those wonderful candies of my youth. These tasty treats originally were made by the Johnson Candy Company, which later took the name of DeMets. DeMets has marketed this candy shop classic for many years. Although Turtles have been produced since the early 1900s, they have changed hands several times. In 1943, Nestl owned the trademark, but in 2007 DeMets got it back. DeMets is well known for its specialty chocolates, including Turtles. We are told that they use as much as 7,000 tons (yes, tons) of chocolate and 13,000 tons of nuts each year. Just this week, news came out that these two food items are going to be more expensive this year. Better get a supply now. Not wanting to infringe on DeMets trademark, I decided to call the following cake Chocolate Caramel and Nut Cake. This trio of popular flavors comes forth in this cake, but lets be real. A cake can never truly give us the flavor we want when we think of the great candy that uses the same ingredients. The cake of course is chocolate, and there is a ribbon of caramel and nuts in middle, making it delicious. When the cake is sliced, I suggest topping it with a dollop of whipped topping or whipped cream, sprinkled with chocolate chips and nuts and drizzled with caramel. For those who prefer to bake from scratch, you can use the recipe for the cake layer of the popular German Chocolate Cake. Chocolate Caramel and Nut Cake€ 1 box German chocolate cake mix € 1 stick of butter ( cup) € 1 (11 oz.) bag of caramels € 1 can sweetened condensed milk (like Eagle Brand) € 1 (6 oz.) pkg chocolate chips € 1 cup chopped nuts (I prefer pecans) Mix cake as box directs. Pour half of the batter into a 9x13 pan. Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool 10 minutes. Melt butter, caramels and milk together. Pour over cake mixture. Sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts over caramel P r u d e n c e H i l b u r n Prudence Hilburn By Becky KrystalThe Washington PostIf youre tuned in to whats trendy these days, it may seem your options for what to drink this summer have been whittled down to two: Coldbrew coffee or ros. But if you want something in between the caffeine jolt of the former and the celebratory nature of the latter, you need look no further than a classic. Iced tea. Sure, there are plenty of bottled and canned options vying for your cash and attention, but making your own is a lot less expensive „ especially if youre brewing for a crowd „ and a whole lot more satisfying. Its also remarkably easy. Here are a few expert tips to get you started. € Begin by making hot tea. Michelle Brown, coowner of Washingtons Teaism family of cafes and shops, says many of the same guidelines apply to iced tea as hot tea. The general rule is about one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea per 1 cup of water; for large quantities, aim for 1 to 1 ounces of tea per gallon of water. Your teas packaging should offer guidance on water temperature and steep times (generally, black tea is brewed for four to five minutes with 212-degree water, with greens in the oneto three-minute range at lower temperatures, from 160 to 180 degrees). If youre going to be pouring the tea over ice, Brown suggests doubling the steep time for a more robust flavor that can account for the dilution that occurs as the ice melts. € Dont totally discount cold brew. Yes, like coffee, you can certainly go the cold-brew route. Although Brown somewhat cheekily notes that there may not be a reason to cold-brew other than laziness,Ž she acknowledges that there is a place for it. Brown recommends steeping cold-brew tea in the refrigerator for 12 hours and then consuming it within a day or two to avoid possibly exposing yourself to bacteria growth. € Forget the special tools. You dont need to buy a bunch of thingsŽ to make iced tea, Byrd says. Brown says, Really, all you need is a pot and tea and some way to get the tea out of the water.Ž A stainless-steel tea ball is a cheap investment. Other items in your kitchen can pull double duty for iced tea: Think a pasta pot or Dutch oven in combination with a fine-mesh strainer. Disposable tea sacs are another possibility.Sip through summer with homemade iced tea

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, June 13, 2018 B1CELEBRATE By Diane M. RobinsonThe News | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comWASHINGTON AND HOLMES COUNTIES … Making his mark one project at a time is just what County Engineer Cliff Knauer does every day. Knauer, a civil engineer, is employed by Dewberry Engineers and has been the engineer of record for Washington County since 1998 and Holmes County since 2010. To say that he is busy is a massive understatement. Between never ending emails and non-stop phone calls, Knauer not only designs roads, bridges, buildings, and boat ramps, he also looks for grant opportunities that each county can take advantage of to improve all of the things listed above. A native of Miami, Knauer relocated to Northwest Florida in 1987 to pursue his degree in Civil Engineering from Florida State University in 1992. He began his tenure with Washington County just six short years later. Knauer says he wants to leave something behind that future generations will see and use. It is cool to leave things behind you after death,Ž he said. Things that I have designed will be used by future generations far into the future, its really cool to know that.Ž Some of Knauers favorite projects in each county have had great environmental improvements, such as, Holmes Countys Northride Lane paving project and the dock built at Hightower Springs in Vernon. Northride Lane saw much of the clay from the previous dirt road washing into the wetlands when it would rain. Knauer designed a retention pond at the end of the road to catch the run off which made a large impact on the health of the wetlands. Hightower Spr ings is no longer filling up with clay and creek water from big ruts that had been worn into the ground from visitors walking between the boat ramp and spring for many years. The spring has been cleaned out and is now so clear that the spring itself can be seen bubbling under the water. Knauer says he owes his success to finding funding for the counties to complete projects. Ive found the key to my success is chasing, finding and getting funding for each county I work with to complete projects,Ž he said. Knauer not only works with Washington and Holmes Counties, he is also the engineer of record for Walton County, the Towns of Wausau, Defuniak Springs and Freeport. When Knauer isnt busy working on all of his many projects, he is an active father of two, daughter Emma, 13 and son Jake, 7. His after work activities include playing with his band and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. A Day in the LifeŽ is a series meant to highlight the behind-the-scenes work that makes each role served in our community vital to its success. Each month in this spot, we hope to give an insight into a profession or passion that helps celebrate the often unnoticed and unsung efforts of those who often make the largest difference.

** B2 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Ken SweetThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. and global markets rose modestly on Monday, as investors made preparations for President Donald Trumps meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.European investors also focused on Italys new government, and its future using the euro. The Dow Jones indus-trial average rose 5.78 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 25,322.31. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 2.97 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,782.00 and the Nasdaq compos-ite rose 14.41 points, or 0.2 percent, to 7,659.93.Investors spent most of Monday waiting for Tuesdays meeting between Trump and Kim, aimed at settling a standoff over the Norths nuclear arsenal. North Korea has reportedly said it is willing to deal away its entire nuclear arsenal if the United States provides it with reliable security assurances and other benefits. But many say Kims government is unlikely to give up weap-ons that help guarantee its survival.If successful, the meeting would lower geopolitical tensions in an area that involves three of the worlds larg-est economies: South Korea, Japan and China.Theres a lot of poten-tial volatility that could come this week: we have the Trump-Kim summit and the central bank meetings,Ž said Ryan Larson, head of U.S. equity trading at RBC Capital Markets. A lot of the tone for this week will be set out in Trumps meeting with Kim.ŽThe Federal Reserve will start a two-day meeting on interest rates on Tuesday, wrap-ping up on Wednesday. Investors expect the nations central bank to raise interest rates from their current level of 1.75 percent to 2 percent, but most attention will be on how many rate hikes Fed officials are considering doing later this year.Investors showed little concern over the swipes that Trump took at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend and Monday.Trump roiled a week-end meeting of the Group of Seven major industrial economies by agreeing to a group statement only to rapidly withdraw from it while complaining about Trudeaus criticism of his tariff threats.Stocks rise slightly ahead of TrumpKim meetingBy Anick Jesdanun and Ryan NakashimaThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ If technology giants like Facebook, Google and Amazon face a common threat to their dominance, it probably lies in a single word: trust.In some respects, these companies are riding high. They have woven them-selves into the fabric of our daily lives, making their services indispensable for daily tasks like keeping in touch with family and friends, watching TV and buying cat food. Rev-enues are up and profits are soaring.But theyve also drawn the attention of regula-tors in Europe and the U.S. thanks to carelessness with consumer data and other problems. Facebooks leaky data controls, for instance, let Cambridge Analytica mine the profiles of up to 87 million people in an attempt to swing elections. The social network has also had to beef up manual over-sight to clamp down on the spread of fake news.Googles YouTube has likewise been implicated in the spread of political con-spiracy theories. Not long ago, Amazons alwayslistening Echo speaker inadvertently recorded a familys conversation at home „ and then sent the recording to someone else.Some of these issues are systemic; others may be little more than the growing pains of new technologies. What they all fuel, though, is a sense that technology may not always warrant the implicit faith we place in it.Companies have to realize that trust isnt digital,Ž says Gerd Leonhard, a futurist and author of Technology vs. Humanity.Ž Trust is not something that you down-load. Trust is a feeling. Its a perception.ŽTrust looms large in modern life. We still get on airplanes even though they sometimes come apart in flight We go to hospitals even though medical errors sometimes kill patients. These services are too important to live with-out, despite the occasional disastrous error.But those industries are also heavily regulated because of the risks involved. Technology companies, by comparison, are largely unconstrained.Trust issues could be especially acute for technology companies, since their services are effectively omnipresent yet largely inscrutable. You cant audit Googles algorithm to see why its giving you certain search results the way you can watch your bank balance. You just have to trust that the company is upholding its promises.Yet so far, such concerns dont loom large for most consumers. That trust is eroded, but the uncomfortable thing is no one really cares,Ž says Scott Galloway, a New York University marketing professor. As long as they trust that technology will improve their lives, they dont appear to care about the other stuff.ŽA 2016 survey from the Pew Research Center, for instance, found that only 9 percent of users were very confidentŽ that social media companies could protect their data. More than half had little or no confidence. Yet a Janu-ary survey from Pew found that 69 percent of U.S. adults use social media, unchanged from 2016.Shaky consumer confi-dence can still limit the time people spend on Facebook or curb their enthusiasm for new boundary-pushing services. Amazon, for instance, now wants its delivery people to leave packages inside your home or car. Thats not going to fly if youre worried about Amazon exploiting its access to your private spaces.But tech giants have fewer worries about consumers defecting to their rivals, in part because they each do their best to lock users into their array of complementary apps and services. That doesnt stop them from sniping at one another, of course. Apple, for instance, has emphasized its privacy protections to highlight its differences with Facebook and Google.Techs trust paradoxDont trust the tech giants? You likely rely on them anyway BUSINESS Commuters look at their phones June 1 in Los Angeles. Tech giants like Facebook, Google and Amazon ask us to trust them with ever-more sensitive aspects of our lives. But theres a catch: If they p rove unw orthy of that trust, the repercussions are scant and alternatives seem hard to “ nd. [JAE C. HONG/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Martin CrutsingerThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ Another interest rate increase is all but certain when the Federal Reserve meets this week. Whats not so sure is whether the vigorous U.S. economy will lead the Fed to accelerate its rate hikes in the months ahead „ a move that could raise the risk of a recession.When it last met in May, the Fed left its short-term rate unchanged. But it noted that inflation was edging near its 2 percent target after years of remaining undesir-ably low. Should inflation eventually pick up, the Fed might move to tighten credit more aggressively. The challenge would be to do so without slowing growth so much as to cause a downturn.Investors are eagerly awaiting the updated eco-nomic forecasts the Fed will issue when its meeting ends Wednesday. Among other things, the forecasts will show whether the policymakers still foresee a total of three rate increases for 2018, as they predicted three months ago, or whether they now envision four. The Fed has so far raised its key rate once this year, in March.A gradual rise in inflation is coinciding with new-found economic strength. After years in which the economy expanded at roughly a tepid 2 percent annually, growth could top 3 percent this year. Consumer and business spending is powering the economy, in part a result of the tax cut President Donald Trump pushed through Congress late last year.With employers hiring at a solid pace month after month, unemployment has reached 3.8 percent. Not since 1969 has the jobless rate been lower.The Fed will probably note the economys strength in the statement it will issue Wednesday. Further clarity could follow, when Chairman Jerome Powell holds his second news conference since succeeding Janet Yellen in February.Beginning in 2008 in the midst of the financial crisis, the Fed kept its key rate unchanged at a record low near zero for seven years. It then raised rates once in 2015, once in 2016 and three times in 2017. Wednesdays expected quarter-point rate increase will raise the Feds benchmark rate to a range of 1.75 percent to 2 percent.Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics, said he thinks stronger growth and rising inflation will lead the Fed to raise rates four times this year and four more in 2019.We are going to get a period of rip-roaring growth that is going to push unemployment down to close to 3 percent, a level we have only been at twice in our history,Ž Zandi said. That means the Fed is going to have to start step-ping harder on the brakes.ŽThe Fed aims to achieve its mandates of maximizing employment and stabilizing prices by low-ering rates to spur growth during times of economic weakness and raising rates to slow growth if the economy threatens to overheat. When the Fed tightens credit, it aims to do so without derailing the economy. But if it miscal-culates and overdoes the credit tightening, it can trigger a recession.The economic expansion has survived for nine years and is now the second-longest in history. It will become the longest if it lasts past June 2019, at which point it would surpass the expansion that lasted from March 1991 to March 2001.While many economists think the current expan-sion will exceed the 1990s streak, some worry about what might occur once the impact of the tax cuts begin to fade and the Feds grad-ual rate hikes begin to curb growth. Diane Swonk, chief economist at Grant Thornton, suggested that the economy could experi-ence a growth recession,Ž in which the gross domes-tic product slows so much that unemployment starts to rise.In the meantime, some Fed watchers are revising their forecasts to predict four rather than three rate increases this year. Even so, the CME Group says trading in the futures market still suggests a slight majority envisioning three increases for 2018.The Feds pace of rate hikes for the rest of the year could end up reflect-ing a tug of war between a sturdy economy and the risks to growth, including from a potential trade war that could break out between the United States and such key trading partners as China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico. All those countries have vowed to retaliate against any U.S. tariffs with their own pen-alties against U.S. goods.Fed watchers await rate forecast with a hike all but certain

RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY … Holmes County School District is seeing the highest percentage of third grade students passing the English Language Arts (ELA) portion of the Florida Standards Assessment test since 2015. Florida Department of Edu-cation released third grade English Language Arts scores recently with 57 percent of Holmes County third graders passing, which means they scoreda 3 or higher. Third grade students are required to demonstrate proficiency in reading to be promoted to fourth grade.The Florida Department of Education contacted Poplar Springs Elementary Schools Rhonda Steversons third grade class to congratulate them as being one of only seven schools statewide to achieve 100 percent proficiency on the assessment.Holmes County School District third graders have continued to perform better over the past four years, increasing the percentage of students passing by 13 percent.

** B4 Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserCancer is not new to our family. My wife is a breast cancer survivor, as is her sister, who has been battling stage four cancer for the past four years. My father died of multiple myeloma, cancer of the bone marrow, when he was 53. He bestowed on me a life-long memory of courage, faith and grace. I took him to visit his friends the week before he died. He was too weak to remain standing. He greeted each with a cheerful smile and his natural good humor. But I could see the sadness written in their faces when they saw the seriousness of his condition. My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer two weeks before Christmas. She and my son still have three children, ages 17, 16 and 15, at home. Life becomes precious when we are faced with our mortality and the mortality of those we love. My son and daughter-in-law are giving it their best, and hoping for the best with chemotherapy and radiation. But they know they are not in control. They are trusting God and celebrating each day. Knowing that thousands are traveling a similar journey, I wanted to share a couple of her posts on Facebook that have inspired me. She recently wrote, Today was a great day. I woke up with no pain and I was able to spend the day with my kids. My husband was able to go to work. I ate more food with no sickness than Ive had in over a week. I had enough energy to attend a hilarious community play with the beautiful high school drama/English students and laughed until my chest hurt. I stayed up late talking with my best friend about how blessed we are and how God answers prayers in ways we dont even realize. My children laughed and teased each other in ways that made us feel normal. And I still have my hair. Today was a great day!Ž A few days later she wrote: As I mourn the loss of my hair, an outward symbol of my health and femininity, I am reminded of my true identity in Christ. Psalm 139:13-15 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mothers womb. I thank you, High God„youre breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration„what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life all prepared before Id even lived one day.Ž I am proud of my daughter-in-law. And I am grateful to be surrounded by men and women who inspire me. Every day in thousands of homes mothers and fathers, sons and daughters fight quiet and littleknown battles of life, love and faith.
