All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. BareÂ“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Ameri caÂs military forces are preparing for the multiple threats posed by climate change. According to the latest report from the Defense Department, 50 percent of U.S. military sites have already been affected by floods, wildfires, drought and other weather events made more extreme by rising global temperatures. While the Naval Support Activity Center off Thomas Drive and Tyndall Air Force Base were not specifically named, they fall into the areas of concern for the Pentagon given their proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. Much of this can be charted. As sea level rises, Navy bases on the coast are threatened. Bases in dry regions are threatened by drought as fire seasons get longer. The Defense Department looks strictly at its mission and Âchanges in climate affect natural security in several ways,ÂŽ the report stated. With sea levels rising twice as fast as 25 years ago, a previous Defense Department report found that 56 Navy bases are at risk with about 3 feet of sea level rise. The report itemized a few notable examples: Huge temperature fluctuations have caused disruption in the Arctic to a radar station on the North Slope. Damages to the runwayÂs seawall have caused $47 million in repairs. In 2012, the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado threatened Peterson Air Force Base and the Air Force Academy, and it cost over $16 million to fight. Climate chaos was on full display on Jan. 2 of this year when Anchorage, Alaska, was warmer than Ocala. The high in Anchorage was 49 degrees compared to 44 degrees in Panama City. The Earth just had its hottest four years in recorded history, according to NASA and NOAA. As a result, 2017 saw a number of recordbreaking weather disasters including California wildfires and three hurricanes. Hurricane Harvey caused recordbreaking flooding in Texas, while Hurricane Irma hit wide swaths of Florida. Renewable energy is fast becoming the most economical energy source. Last year was the first time that a reduction in carbon emissions was due more to renewable energy and conservation than from switching from coal to natural gas. The corporate sector is leading the way to green energy. In fact, 71 of the Fortune 100 companies have set a public target for using more energy with 21 of them planning to use 100 percent renewable energy. Renewable energy now represents 18 percent of all U.S. generation, double the rate a decade ago. Since 2010, the cost of new solar photovoltaic output declined by 70 percent. The cost of wind power declined by 25 percent, reports the International Energy Agency. Also, battery prices have declined by 40 percent since 2010. It is against this environmental and entrepreneurial backdrop that the military is moving forward in preparing for climate change, in step with the civilian population. This guest editorial was originally published in a sister paper in Gatehouse Media.Military takes on climate changeANOTHER VIEW Every once in a great while I get a wild hair and think about ironing some of those clothes that IÂve been leaving out in plain view so that I will eventually iron them. However, when the winter shirts get covered by the summer shirts it's time to do some decision making. Do I (a) shove the long sleeved ones to the back of the closet, (b) iron them so that they are ready for use when the season changes, or (c) take them to the thrift store for someone else to iron. Actually, I will probably do none of the above. IÂll leave them hanging in the laundry room for another few months before I do any of the above. I might even break down and take some of them to the dry cleaner and have them toned. With summer shirts, its a little different story. Nothing looks nicer on my man than a crisply ironed cotton shirt and there are certain ones I will eventually iron before the summer is gone knowing that they will soon be in the wash and the cycle starts over. So in the course of a season, he will get to wear that shirt at least twice. In the meantime, Tison Blueberry knits are available. There is one knit that he will wear voluntarily that needs no ironing which he will wear every time its in the drawer. Blueberries stained the pocket drastically, but he kept wearing it until multiple washings have actually got rid of the stain.(That has nothing to do with ironing.) Those who werenÂt doing laundry before permanent press and stretch added to cottons canÂt relate to this article on ironing. Growing up and into my early married life, permanent press didnÂt exist. Neither did automatic washing machines and clothes dryers. Early on we washed in tubs of water after boiling the clothes in a wash pot. We then hung them on an outdoor clothesline and then everything had to be ironed. Some work clothes might be folded and worn Ârough dried,ÂŽ but denim and chambray work shirts had to have some ironing, even if they werenÂt starched. Most dress shirts were white and starching with boiled starch was imperative. Before ironing them, they had to be sprinkled and rolled to distribute the moisture. Before we had electricity, we had to iron with those heavy black flat irons heated on the wood stove or in front of a fire. Extreme care had to be taken to clean the iron before touching it to the white shirt. Sheets of waxed paper were often used to give the iron a smooth surface, too, before touching it to the garment. Before electricity, also, we had another innovation. An iron heated by lighting charcoal in the middle of the iron so that it wasnÂt necessary to keep the fire going in the stove or fireplace. The charcoal iron, however, was prohibitively heavy and it gave off a lot of heat, so it wasnÂt considered much of an improvement over the black flat irons. We were fortunate enough to have help in doing the ironing for our large family. Some stories could be told, and are, about trips to the ironing lady. Perry once got so carried away with his conversation with the son of the ironing lady that he came home without the ironing and had to go back, Another time, Clyde and I got stranded five miles from home and had to walk in the dark, when the truck failed to crank when we went to pick up the ironing. For an ironing board, all my Mama ever had was a long flat board which she padded with an old quit and parts of sheets and propped between two kitchen chairs until foster brother Shelby built her a folding one while on the Veterans On-the-farm program. Later, Jack built me one when he was teaching in that program. That was no great favor. It was put together with nuts and bolts which had a great propensity to fall out during the ironing chore. You had to be continually tightening nuts or the whole thing would fall apart. It took me probably twenty years to realize that I could ditch that piece of junk and buy myself a decent ironing board. Now I also have a short folding table on wheels which I open and iron maybe 3 shirts before my arthritic hands renege. I could sit and iron at that table, but ironing is not a sitting down job. If you ask me if I hate ironing, I would have to reply, no. I actually kind of enjoy the solitude of ironing and thinking my own thoughts. I also enjoy the satisfaction of hanging the crisply ironed garments and seeing them on my family. It just never seems to fit into my schedule. I remember that I was ironing when word came on the TV that President Kennedy had been shot. I am thankful for electric irons, steam irons, a folding iron board that doesnÂt lose its bolts and irons that I donÂt have to wipe the soot off before touching it to my clean clothes.Happy Corner: Does anybody iron clothes anymore?

The parking lot will be expanded as well as paved.County Coordinator Joey Marsh says the improvements are greatly needed.ÂThe ramp is used quite a bit and is in bad shape,ÂŽ said Marsh. ÂThis is a big coup for the county for such a large amount to fix the facilities there.ÂŽThe next step is for design which Dewberry Engineers was awarded the contract for $25,000 to complete the work.Permits from Army Corps Engineers, Department of Environmental Protection and Northwest Florida Water Management District are expected to come through in the next 90 days.A request for proposals will be sent out after all permits are obtained.County Engineer Cliff Knauer projects by the end of the year for completion of the project.County to refurbish Hwy 2 boat rampStaff ReportHOLMES COUNTY Â„ A traf-fic stop near the intersection of Highways 177 and 79 resulted in two arrests on Thursday, June 14, according to a Holmes County SheriffÂs Office news release.A Holmes County SheriffÂs Office investigator observed that a truck traveling south on Highway 177 had a crack in the windshield which was obstructing the driverÂs side view. A traffic stop was initiated as the driver pulled into an apartment complex near the intersection at Highway 79, according to the release.Contact was made with the driver, identified as Josep Fletcher Lee, 42, of a Spring Cove Lane address in Ponce de Leon, and the passenger, who initially provided a false name, the release stated.The passenger was identified as 29-year-old Kayla Brooke Stiles of a Saint Johns Road address in Bonifay, who had an active Holmes County warrant for violation of probation on previous charges of petit theft and criminal mischief.When the investiga-tor asked Lee for permission to search the truck, he replied by telling the investiga-tor to Âget a warrant,ÂŽ according to the release.A K9 unit was dispatched to conduct a free-air sniff of the vehicle and alerted to the presence of ille-gal narcotics. A white powdery substance was located during the subsequent search and field tested positive for metham-phetamine, the release stated.A further search revealed drug paraphernalia hidden in the dash of the truck.Stiles was charged and booked into the Holmes County Jail on the existing active war-rant. Lee was booked into the Holmes County Jail on charges of possession of methamphet-amine and resisting arrest without violence.Two arrested for drugs Lee Stiles By Jim Turner News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Â„ Striking a blow to the Legislature, a Tallahassee judge said state lawmakers failed to comply with a voter-approved constitutional amendment to buy and preserve environmen-tally sensitive lands.Ruling from the bench Friday, Leon County Cir-cuit Judge Charles Dodson sided with environmental groups in the lawsuit centered on whether lawmakers ÂdefiedÂŽ the 2014 Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative by improperly diverting portions of the money to such expenses as staffing Â„ alle-gations legislative leaders have repeatedly disputed as they continued to make such budget allocations.David Guest Â„ a lawyer representing the Florida Wildlife Federation, the St. Johns Riverkeeper, the Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida, the Sierra Club and Florida Wildlife Federation President Manley Fuller Â„ called DodsonÂs Friday bench ruling a Â100 percent victory.ÂŽÂThe people of Florida voted with a firm, clear voice.

** A8 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser NATION & WORLDBy Nomaan MerchantThe Associated PressMcALLEN, Texas Â„ Inside an old warehouse in South Texas, hundreds of children wait away from their parents in a series of cages created by metal fencing. One cage had 20 children inside. Scattered about are bottles of water, bags of chips and large foil sheets intended to serve as blankets.One teenager told an advocate who visited that she was helping care for a young child she didnÂt know because the childÂs aunt was somewhere else in the facility. She said she had to show others in her cell how to change the girlÂs diaper.The U.S. Border Patrol on Sunday allowed reporters to briefly visit the facility where it holds families arrested at the southern U.S. border, responding to new criticism and protests over the Trump administrationÂs Âzero toleranceÂŽ policy and resulting sepa-ration of families.More than 1,100 people were inside the large, dark facility thatÂs divided into separate wings for unac-companied children, adults on their own, and mothers and fathers with children. The cages in each wing open out into common areas to use portable restrooms. The overhead lighting in the warehouse stay on around the clock.Reporters were not allowed by agents to inter-view any of the detainees or take photos.Nearly 2,000 children have been taken from their parents since Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy, which directs Homeland Security officials to refer all cases of illegal entry into the United States for prose-cution. Church groups and human rights advocates have sharply criticized the policy, calling it inhumane.Stories have spread of children being torn from their parentsÂ arms, and parents not being able to find where their kids have gone. A group of congressional lawmakers visited the same facility Sunday and were set to visit a longer-term shelter holding around 1,500 children Â„ many of whom were sep-arated from their parents.ÂThose kids inside who have been separated from their parents are already being traumatized,ÂŽ said Democratic Sen. Jeff Merk-ley of Oregon, who was denied entry earlier this month to childrenÂs shelter. ÂIt doesnÂt matter whether the floor is swept and the bedsheets tucked in tight.ÂŽIn TexasÂ Rio Grande Valley, the busiest corridor for people trying to enter the U.S., Border Patrol officials argue that they have to crack down on migrants and separate adults from children as a deterrent to others.ÂWhen you exempt a group of people from the law ... that creates a draw,ÂŽ said Manuel Padilla, the Border PatrolÂs chief agent here. ÂThat creates the trends right here.ÂŽAgents running the hold-ing facility Â„ generally known as ÂUrsulaÂŽ for the name of the street itÂs on Â„ said everyone detained is given adequate food, access to showers and laundered clothes, and medical care. People are supposed to move through the facility quickly. Under U.S. law, children are required to be turned over within three days to shelters funded by the Department of Health and Human Services. Padilla said agents in the Rio Grande Valley have allowed families with chil-dren under the age of 5 to stay together in most cases.An advocate who spent several hours in the facility Friday said she was deeply troubled by what she found.Michelle Brane, director of migrant rights at the WomenÂs Refugee Commis-sion, met with a 16-year-old girl who had been taking care of a young girl for three days. The teen and others in their cage thought the girl was 2 years old.ÂShe had to teach other kids in the cell to change her diaper,ÂŽ Brane said.Brane said that after an attorney started to ask questions, agents found the girlÂs aunt and reunited the two. It turned out that the girl was actually 4 years old. Part of the problem was that she didnÂt speak Span-ish, but KÂiche, a language indigenous to Guatemala.ÂShe was so traumatized that she wasnÂt talking,ÂŽ Brane said. ÂShe was just curled up in a little ball.ÂŽBrane said she also saw officials at the facility scold a group of 5-yearolds for playing around in their cage, telling them to settle down. There are no toys or books.But one boy nearby wasnÂt playing with the rest. According to Brane, he was quiet, clutching a piece of paper that was a photocopy of his motherÂs ID card.ÂThe government is lit-erally taking kids away from their parents and leaving them in inappropriate con-ditions,ÂŽ Brane said. ÂIf a parent left a child in a cage with no supervision with other 5-year-olds, theyÂd be held accountable.ÂŽHundreds of children held in Texas facilityNicole Hernandez, of the Mexican state of Guerrero, holds on to her mother as they wait with other families to request political asylum in the United States, on Wednesday across the border in Tijuana, Mexico. The U.S. Border Patrol on Sunday allowed reporters to brieÂ” y visit the facility where it holds families arrested at the southern U.S. border, responding to criticism and protests over the Trump administrationÂs Âzero toleranceÂŽ policy and resulting separation of families.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, June 20, 2018 A11By Eric Tucker and Mary Clare JalonickThe Associated PressWASHINGTON Â„ The FBI is determined to not repeat any of the mistakes identified in a harshly critical watchdog report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Director Chris Wray said Monday at a congressional hearing at which he repeatedly sought to distance himself from his predecessor.Wray told lawmakers that the FBI accepted the findings of the Office of the Inspector General report and has begun making changes, including about how it handles especially sensitive investigations, like the Clinton one. The FBI is also reinforcing through employee training the need to avoid the appearance of political bias, a key point of criticism in last weekÂs report, and has referred employees singled out in the report to the agencyÂs investigative arm for possible discipline.ÂThe OIGÂs report makes clear that we have significant work to do and as I said weÂre going to learn from the report and be better as a result,ÂŽ Wray said, even as multiple Republi-cans on the Senate Judiciary Committee pounced on the reportÂs findings to allege ram-pant bias within the FBI.The departmentÂs inspec-tor general, Michael Horowitz, appeared alongside Wray and repeated the reportÂs central conclusions that the Clinton investigation was plagued by leadership missteps but not tainted by political bias.The report blasted FBI actions during the 2016 inves-tigation into whether Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, had mishandled classified information on her private email server when she was secretary of state.It said anti-Donald Trump text messages exchanged by FBI employees who worked on the investigation cast a cloud on the agencyÂs handling of the probe and damaged its reputation. It also said that fired FBI Director James Comey repeatedly broke from protocol, including when he publicly announced his recommendation against charging Clinton and when he bucked the judgment of Justice Department bosses by alert-ing Congress months later that the investigation was being reopened because of newly discovered emails.Republicans, increasingly skeptical of special counsel Robert MuellerÂs investigation into potential coordination between Russia and TrumpÂs Republican presidential campaign, said Monday they werenÂt convinced by the reportÂs conclusion that the decision to spare Clinton from criminal charges was free from bias, or by reassurances that the problems were limited to just a handful of employees. Trump himself had eagerly awaited the inspector generalÂs report in hopes that criticism of Comey and the FBI could discredit MuellerÂs investigation.ÂThere is a serious problem with the culture at FBI headquarters,ÂŽ said Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch.The Republican committee chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, drew a contrast between what he said were aggressive actions taken during MuellerÂs investigation and the Âkid-glove treatmentÂŽ that Grassley maintained had occurred during the Clinton investigation.ÂThe Justice Department faces a serious credibility problem because millions of Americans suspect that there is a double standard,ÂŽ Grassley said. ÂThey see a story of kidglove treatment for one side and bare-knuckle tactics for the other. They see politics in that story.ÂŽThough not agreeing with those characterizations, Wray said he accepted that the FBI had made mistakes and chided ComeyÂs judgment, saying, ÂThere are a number of things that I probably would have done differently.ÂŽ He also said he could not imagine a scenario in which he would have unilat-erally announced his charging decision at a news conference, as Comey did.Director: FBI wonÂt repeat mistakes noted in reportFBI Director Christopher Wray testiÂ“ es during a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee to examine HorowitzÂs report of the FBIÂs Clinton email probe, on Capitol Hill, on Monday in Washington.

Pinot grigio is not made from white wine grapes: Normally, white wines are made from green grapes. Pinot grigio is the exception to this rule. Drink it while itÂs young: It can go straight from the winery to your table because it matures quickly. The avor varies widely depending on where the grapes are grown: There are three main avor pro les: mineral and dry, fruity and dry, and fruity and sweet. By Charlene PetersMore Content NowDetrained in Florence, I was greeted by two tall, impossibly handsome men in Armani suits who swept open the passenger door of a sleek, black luxury sedan. These were not my gli amanti (lovers), nor were they drivers of an Uber Plus. Transportation is one of many luxurious amenities offered to guests of the Grand Amore Hotel and Spa in Florence, cradle of the Renaissance. Upon my ever-so-stylish arrival at the property, I marveled at its breathtaking views over the rooftops of the city and the famed Il Duomo cathedral, a gigantic brick and marble edifice completed in the 1400s. I was similarly impressed by the hotelÂs sensuous lobby design by Marianna Gagaliardi, a renowned architect. A smiling concierge ushered me to a room tricked out with my personally chosen favorite flowers, beverages, pillows and mattress, thanks to a pre-arrival form IÂd been asked to submit. Am I worthy of all this attentiveness? I was too tickled to care. I unpacked, freshened up a bit, and headed back outside. First stop: The Ponte Vecchio, a medieval stone bridge over the Arno River that has become the cityÂs landmark shopping area, and is of course, thick with tourists, today as always. My next stop is not to be missed: the Galleria dellÂAccademia, one of EuropeÂs treasured art museums and home to MichelangeloÂs magnificent David, among other sculptures and exhibits, including an early Stradivarius viola. Artistic greatness brings on hunger, so a lunch of bruschetta, salad and pasta Â„ all washed down with excellent Chianti Â„ was in order. Much renewed, I continued to take in the sights and sounds of Florence until utter exhaustion brought me crawling Decadence and delight in FlorenceTASTE OF TRAVELLove, Italian-styleMichelangeloÂs Tomb in the Basilica of Santa Croce.

GODSPEAK: Wow, lots of choices here. Obviously, Kurt Busch, but keep an eye on Denny Hamlin. KENÂS CALL: This one is almost too easy. Kurt Busch. If he doesnÂt soon enter the Stewart-Haas Trophy Collection Club, heÂll become quite testy.Summer has started. When it ends, whoÂs Âthe manÂŽ in the Cup Series? GODSPEAK: Kevin Harvick is up on that wheel. He is looking for a career-best season.

JIMMIE JOHNSON: Since there was no Cup race, we go back to this heat-up at Talladega. Bowyer was swept out of the race when JohnsonÂs No. 48 Chevy went sideways in Turn 3.

This came to mind yet again last week. In better times, a Cup Series off week would inevitably be ignited with big news of some sort Â„ as if by design, it seemed. All we got last week was more news about illegal splitters and the resulting Â“ nes and suspensions. This time it was three crew chiefs (Â“ nes) and three car chiefs (suspensions) from Joe Gibbs Racing. Should they just let Âem go?ItÂs probably a canÂt-win proposition. If you let Âem go and throw out 90 percent of the rulebook, some organization Â“ nds a huge advantage and, in Bill FranceÂs words, Âstinks up the show.ÂŽ But make this intense, ongoing, expensive effort to keep everyone on the straight-andnarrow, and you get constant press releases about suspensions and Â“ nes due to nonconforming splitters, etc. Pick your poison.Ken Willis, ken.willis @news-jrnl.comCUP SERIES: Toyota/Save Mart 350 SITE: Sonoma Raceway (1.99-mile road course) TV SCHEDULE: Friday, practice (Fox Sports 1, 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.).

The Vikings announced Monday theyÂll hold a halftime ceremony with GreenÂs family during their Sept. 23 game against Buffalo. Green died at age 67 in 2016. His record over 10 sea-sons was 101-70, including eight trips to the playoffs. Only Bud Grant has more wins in franchise history.

By Pete IacobelliThe Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. Â„ South CarolinaÂs Frank Martin understood all along he might never get to coach Brian Bowen in a game and is just happy the 6-foot-7 forward whose name is part of the federal corruption case in college basketball had the chance to spend a few months with the Gamecocks.Bowen gave up his col-lege career to turn pro last month when the NCAA informed South Carolina he would miss at least all of next season Â„ his second full year on the bench Â„ because of his alleged involvement in the scandal.ÂAm I surprised? No. IÂm realistic enough to understand when we took him that this was a possi-bility,ÂŽ Martin said. ÂWas I disappointed? Yes.ÂŽ Bowen, from Saginaw, Michigan, transferred to South Carolina following his suspension from Louisville amid the federal probe after news of an alleged payment involving the Cardinals and his father to get him to join that school. Bowen could not play for the Gamecocks until at least the middle of December next season because of NCAA transfer rules.The governing body told the school the penalty for Bowen would at least include the rest of the next year, some-thing Martin knew meant Bowen had little option other than to turn pro.ÂThe NCAA kind of pigeon-holed him into only one choice,ÂŽ Martin said.Martin said did not want to dissect the NCAAÂs decision, saying he accepted it and worked with Bowen and his family on his future. Bowen has since with-drawn from this monthÂs NBA draft. Martin said heÂll play in a developmental league or play outside the country to preserve his eligibility for next yearÂs draft.South Carolina brought in Bowen last January despite his involvement with the college corruption scandal. It was not the coaches only ties to the ongoing investigation. One of MartinÂs former staff members, ex-Oklahoma State assistant Lamont Evans, was arrested by federal authorities. Documents from the investigation showed former Gamecocks point guard PJ Dozier received $6,115 from the ASM Sports Agency while in school.S. CarolinaÂs Martin gets BowenÂs choice to enter draft Brooks Koepka holds up the Golf Champion Trophy on Sunday after winning the U.S. Open Golf Championship in Southampton, N.Y. [CAROLYN KASTER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. Â„ Brooks Koepka now has as many majors as Greg Norman and as many PGA Tour victories as Pat Perez. Koepka belongs in the conversation of elite players in his generation by winning his second U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, a test that asked an entirely different set of questions than the U.S. Open he won last year at Erin Hills. Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth are the only players in their 20s to have won multiple majors, at least for now. And while the 28-year-old Koepka is only in his fourth full year on the PGA Tour, to see his supreme performance at Shinnecock Hills makes it hard to believe he has only one other PGA Tour title. That was three years ago at the Phoenix Open. ThatÂs likely to change. It might have to for Koepka to get the recognition he deserves, even if thatÂs not what drives him. His record should get anyoneÂs attention. Koepka has finished among the top 15 in nine of his past 10 majors starting with the 2015 British Open at St. Andrews. The exception was the Masters two years ago, when he tied for 21st. He missed a month with an ankle injury and returned with a tie for fourth at the 2016 PGA Championship to secure a spot on his first Ryder Cup team. And then he went 3-1 in his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine. He really is a major player. So what about all the other tournaments heÂs played? Koepka touched on that last summer at the Bridgestone Invitational when he said the majors are where ÂI feel like IÂm going to shine.ÂŽ ÂUnfortunately, I havenÂt done it as much in regular tour events or throughout my career,ÂŽ Koepka said. ÂItÂs just being a little bit more focused, maybe taking it more serious, knowing that every shot ... to me, it feels like life or death. If you screw up, youÂre gone. I just love getting up for it and playing the best and playing really, really hard golf courses.ÂŽ Shinnecock went from ridiculously hard on Saturday to overly gentle on Sunday, though the ultimate measure was Koepka playing the final 36 holes in even par to win. He finished at 1-over 281, the first time in five years that no one broke par at the U.S. Open. The USGA doesnÂt like to talk about scores, but thatÂs the identity of this major. And for now, majors define Koepka. Norman gets beat up for the number of majors he could have won, including at Shinnecock Hills in 1986, the year he had the 54-hole lead at all four majors. The Shark also had 75 victories around the world and was No. 1 longer than any other player until Tiger Woods came along. Sunday at Shinnecock began with a four-way tie for the lead, with the past two U.S. Open champions Â„ Koepka and Dustin Johnson Â„ playing in the penultimate group. They are close friends off the course, and even worked out together in the morning before their last two rounds. Koepka went 1 up on U.S. Open trophies. Still, he was stumped when asked who was ahead in their back-and-forth. Johnson, still only 33 but much like Norman, hasnÂt cashed in at the majors as much as he should have. Attribute that to a cold putter on the weekend at Shinnecock, which also held him back at Augusta in April. Even so, he has 18 victories and is the only player to sweep the World Golf Championships, small fields with the best players. ÂHeÂs won every year heÂs been out here. ThatÂs incredible,ÂŽ Koepka said. ÂI donÂt know how long heÂs been out here, 11 years? How many wins has got, 18? ThatÂs pretty good. IÂve got some catching up to do.ÂŽ Koepka believes Johnson will win another U.S. Open and said he would end his career as among the best to ever play. That will require more than one additional major, for sure, though Johnson already is well ahead in the victory count. ThatÂs the next step for Koepka, at least until the next major. Before earning his PGA Tour card, Koepka won the Turkish Airlines Open against a strong European Tour field that included Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Branden Grace and Ian Poulter. Late last year, he registered a nine-shot victory in the Dunlop Phoenix, one of the strongest Japan Golf Tour events. Xander Schauffele tied for second, with Hideki Matsuyama another shot behind.Koepka could use more wins, but his trophies are big SPORTS TICKER Brooks Koepka reacts Sunday after Â“ nishing the Â“ nal round of the U.S. Open Golf Championship in Southampton, N.Y.

** B2 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ U.S. stocks shrugged off early losses and wound up with a mixed finish Monday. Household goods companies took some of the worst losses as the S&P 500 index fell for the third time in four days.The S&P 500 dropped as much as 22 points early on. Consumer products and packaged foods companies stum-bled and drug makers and distributors fell, as did health insurers. That came after indexes in Europe and Asia fell. German stocks took steep losses as investors wondered if a dispute over migrants could eventually threaten the German government.But stocks gradually recovered most of their losses as energy companies rose along with oil prices and technology companies managed to make some gains as well. Smaller and more U.S.-focused companies climbed higher. That continued a pattern that has persisted for more than three months.ItÂs been a turbulent few months for stocks, but the benchmark S&P 500 is a bit higher than it was when international trade tensions started to weigh on the market in late February. The S&P 500 fell 5.91 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,773.75. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 103.01 points, or 0.4 percent, to 24,987.47. The Nasdaq composite edged up 0.65 points to 7,747.03.The Russell 2000 index rose 8.55 points, or 0.5 percent, to a record 1,692.46.

PTC Therapeutics jumped 27.5 percent to $47.88 after its report from an early study of a drug intended to treat Type 1 spinal muscular atro-phy, a genetic disorder that affects infants.Stocks recover from early dip, nish mixedBy Tom KrisherThe Associated PressDETROIT Â„ Every workday, about 7,400 trucks mostly loaded with automotive parts rumble across the Ambassador Bridge connecting Detroit and Canada, at times snarl-ing traffic along the busy corridor.But if President Donald Trump delivers on threats to slap 25 percent tariffs on imported vehicles and components, there will be far fewer big rigs heading to factories that are now humming close to capacity on both sides of the border.The tariff threat could be a negotiating ploy to restart stalled talks on the North American Free Trade Agreement. But it also could be real, since the administration already has imposed duties on $50 billion worth of Chinese imports, as well as steel and aluminum from China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico.Tariffs against China include some autos and parts but if those spread to Canada and Mexico, the impact will be far larger because auto manufac-turing has been integrated between the three countries for nearly a quarter century.The Commerce Depart-ment said in a statement last week that it Âhas just launched its investigation into whether imports of auto and auto parts threaten to impair the national security. That investigation, which has only just begun, will inform recommendations to the president for action or inaction.ÂŽIf the wider auto tariffs are imposed, industry experts say they will disrupt a decades-old symbiotic parts supply chain, raise vehicle prices, cut new-vehicle sales, cost jobs in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and even slow related sectors of the economy.ÂIt seems like it is going to be so devastating that I canÂt imagine that theyÂre actually going to do it,ÂŽ said Kristen Dziczek, vice president of labor and eco-nomics at the Center for Automotive Research, an industry think tank.Trump, who was snip-ing on Twitter at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after a conten-tious economic summit of the Group of Seven earlier this month, told the Com-merce Department to look at national security reasons to justify tariffs with hopes of bringing factory jobs to the U.S.He tweeted that the administration would Âlook at tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!ÂŽBut experts predict the tariffs likely would do the opposite, slowing the economy as other countries retaliate. HereÂs what they say is likely to happen: Auto prices rise, sales fallThe tariffs would be charged on parts and assembled autos. Canada, Mexico and others would likely retaliate with duties, and automakers wonÂt be able to absorb all of the increases. So they will have to raise prices. Imported parts, which all cars and trucks have, will cost more, further raising costs.ÂWeÂre all going to pay a lot more for vehicles,ÂŽ said Tim Galbraith, sales man-ager of Cavalier tool and manufacturing in Wind-sor, Ontario, near Detroit, maker of steel molds used to produce plastic auto parts.About 44 percent of the 17.2 million new vehicles sold last year in the U.S. were imported from other countries, and half of those came from Canada and Mexico. All have parts from outside the U.S., sometimes as much as 40 percent.Based on the 24-yearold NAFTA, automakers and suppliers constantly ship fully assembled vehicles as well as engines, transmissions and thousands of small widgets across both U.S. borders. Parts also come from China and other countries. Opposite e ectExperts say auto tari s would raise prices, cost jobs BUSINESS Trucks cross the Ambassador Bridge on June 12 from Windsor, Ontario, into Detroit. In nearly a quarter-century since NAFTA was app roved, a complex chain of automotive parts makers has sprung up on both sides of the U.S.Canada border.

A reading of 70 in May temporarily snapped a four-month slide.Any reading above 50 indicates more builders see sales conditions as good rather than poor. The index has remained above 60 since September 2016.BuildersÂ view of current sales conditions fell one point, to 75 this month. The outlook for sales over the next six months fell one point to 76. A measure of buyer traffic fell one point to 50.ÂBuilders are optimis-tic about housing market conditions as consumer demand continues to grow,ÂŽ said NAHB Chairman Randy Noel, ÂHowever, builders are increasingly concerned that tariffs placed on Canadian lumber and other imported products are hurting housing affordability.ÂŽThe organization said higher lumber prices have added nearly $9,000 to the price of a new single-family home since January 2017.The overall housing market remains tight, with prices of existing homes rising as demand remains strong and listings decrease. Mortgage rates are also steadily increasing, making purchases even more difficult for first-time homebuyers.Sales of new U.S. homes fell 1.5 percent in April, according to The Commerce Department.

Ray presented a donation to the Florida Panhandle Technical College Foundation of $10,370.00 to establish a scholarship for a student studying business or administrative management at FPTC. This donation is a specific endowment that will be presented annually as the Ralph W. Ray Scholarship in perpetuity. Ralph Ray taught at Chipley High School for 15 years (1952 to 1967) and then 25 years (1967 to 1992) at the Washington-Holmes Vocation Technical Center now known as Florida Panhandle Technical College. He always considered teaching to be a ÂcallingÂŽ of the highest order and in addition to his undergraduate degree from Bowling Green Business University (Bowling Green, KY, 1952), he also completed a MasterÂs Degree at Florida State University. Ralph and Marlene, who had a nursing career, married in 1960 and raised three children in Chipley during their 57-year marriage that includes grandchildren. Originally from McCool, MS, Ralph served his country during World War II in the U.S. Navy overseas in Guam. In addition to teaching for over 40 years, Ralph also unselfishly provided his leadership to the Lions Club and Chipley First United Methodist Church. The WHTC Foundation, Inc., was founded in 1986 to provide financial assistance to students attending the Technical Center, and today the school offers over 40 degree and certification programs, as well as providing dual enrollment opportunities for high school students to obtain advanced training prior to high school graduation. During the past six years, the FPTC Foundation has provided financial assistance of over $250,000 to 450+ students, and this fiscal year will provide another $37,500 to about 60 students. The Foundation has endowed funds that are invested in a diverse professionally managed portfolio but depends on the fund-raising campaign each year for about Â‡rd of its aid funds. As an IRS Section 501(c) (3) charitable organization, donations to the FPTC Foundation are tax deductible under federal income tax regulations for most tax payers. Governed by a Board of 9 Directors and with a Committee of Trustees of 27 that provides oversight and strategic planning, the FPTC Foundation is one of the most active scholarship programs in Washington, Holmes, and Jackson counties. While the Foundation needs its annual donors to operate its successful student aid programs, it is also in need of more endowment funds in larger donations. In recent years, the Foundation has accepted donations of real estate, publicly traded stock and private grants, and can accept donations in almost any format.

** B4 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserPatience has never been a virtue of mine; I like it right now, rather than later. IÂm also not very good at quiet. And you could probably add serenity to that as well. Oh and dragging out the moment... I find that after five minutes ... IÂm good. I have a lot of shortcomings. I like to say ÂGodÂs still working on meÂŽ and IÂm being utterly serious. IÂm more of a long in-depth project rather than a work-in-progress. HereÂs a good example. I stood at the very edge, cause IÂm a dare devil like that. Arms spread wide and looking from side to side slowly. It was my first and only trip to the Grand Canyon. It was stunning. Unlike a picture you see, the actual depth and texture to the view cannot be fully appreciated until you see it. The valleys and the different colors of rock: Gorgeous! After about five minutes of looking, I started getting distracted by the sweat rolling down my back. There were bugs too. I donÂt like bugs. It was June, it was hot and we were standing out in the midday heat. Sweating. Together. It was a special moment. Then I was done. Before my husband started heading over toward another lookout point, he reached his hand out, I slapped him a high five and made tracks for our truck. There was air conditioning there. He would continue to spend another hour just staring. I was rocking some serious tunes and the A/C on high. Our first visit to the Pacific Ocean was on that same trip. We parked our old truck at the very edge of the parking lot and handin-hand we walked until all we could see was the neverending blue-green color of the ocean. I was fully clothed and hip deep in the water, before it occurred to me that 1) It was very cold in the ocean verses a lake like I was used to and 2) My husband had left his shirt and shoes neatly sitting out of the path of the water. So later when the sun went down I was freezing and soaking wet with nothing warm and dry. Until he handed over his dry shirt and shoes. This would continue to be a pattern in our marriage. He savors things and I fall upon it like a rabid wolf consuming it in minutes. It may be something as simple as a dessert but chances are extremely good that IÂm licking the bowl and/or cup while he has just finished eating the cherry off the top of his. Then I sit there waiting on him ... and occasionally snagging an extra bite. As parents this pattern was magnified. Heaven help us when either baby had a fever, I was packing bags and calling up nurse hotlines and preparing for hospital stays. Meanwhile heÂs giving her a bath and Tylenol then rocking her to sleep. I would finally stop and take a deep breath just to see them asleep in the chair. Over the years, I learned to recognize my tendency for dramatic flair. I try to slow down and enjoy life around me, not jump to conclusions (though the invention of Web MD did not help). IÂm so thankful that my guy, through thick and thin, bitter bag ladies and sunny days, is still here to drag me to reality whenever I tend to skip off through the daisies. HeÂs cautious and plans out his approach. Which comes in handy when IÂm flailing about trying to get my footing. I hear so many people telling kids today to wait until they are 30 to get married, to put off having kids until you can afford them. Luckily, I bucked that norm because I met my other half at 19 and that meant we finished growing up together. HeÂs the yin to my yang. ItÂs not easy. ItÂs not supposed to be. At no point should you ever expect easy.... that way when things are good... you really appreciate the good. So donÂt set unreachable goals in your life. Be open for GodÂs blessings. You may end up with someone who can fix everything you break.Two halvesIf you would like to see your vacation bible school on this list email them to firstname.lastname@example.org First Baptist to host VBS CHIPLEY Â… The First Baptist Church of Chipley will host Vacation Bible School from 8 a.m. to noon through Friday, June 22.

HEALTHBy Blake Farmer Kaiser Health News/ Nashville Public Radio Hospitals around the country have been upgrading their neonatal intensive care units to include personal webcams for each tiny patient. ItÂs a convenience for parents Â„ and reduces worries about visitors bringing in germs. The neonatal intensive care unit at St. Thomas Midtown in Nashville, Tennesee, is the latest hospital to join the webcam wave, among facilities around the country from big cities to towns that are installing cameras over each infant. At St. Thomas, Sherri Anderson has 20 years of experience as a neonatal nurse, watching parents run themselves ragged trying to be at the hospital every waking hour, sometimes commuting long distances. ÂThe parents go through a lot Â„ emotionally, spiritually, physically,ÂŽ Anderson said. ÂItÂs very taxing, and sometimes they just need to go home and just recover.ÂŽ The $1,200 cameras Â„ which St. Thomas paid for through a special fundraiser Â„ come from a company called Natus Medical. They provide a closeup shot that anyone in the world can log on to see Â„ using a password. Jill Brothers had twin boys born at 27 weeks, requiring a two-month stay in the NICU. Her husband, who plays professional baseball, was away for spring training most of that time, but he could get on the computer and watch the boysÂ progress. ÂThis has been a crucial element to just being a part and feeling like youÂre involved with their growth,ÂŽ she said. ÂThereÂs lots of other people in the family that have been able to log on and see the boys and see them [in] real time, which is great.ÂŽ Brothers still came to the hospital every day, but she found herself checking the web stream when she was up in the middle of the night Â„ to watch the boys breathing. ÂI really just felt like it was safe and comfortable,ÂŽ she said. ParentsÂ peace of mind is only one aim, though. St. Thomas NICU nursing director Donna Darnell said the new cameras could cut down on germs sneaking into the unit from other relatives stopping by. ÂThere are times throughout the year that we worry about a lot of visitors. Flu season is the best example,ÂŽ Darnell said. Even during normal times, access for family and friends is highly restricted because of germs Â„ and the cameras give many more people the opportunity to see the tiny patients. In the little research that has been done, parents have loved the video access. Doctors also are OK with it, but a study published in the American Journal of Perinatology found that some nurses have misgivings about being watched all day and all night.Cameras on preemies let family in, keep germs out Virtual visiting hours How does it work?The web camera delivers a secure image stream for parents and other relatives to view their baby remotely. Family members can securely access NicView from anywhere there is an internet connection via a laptop, smartphone or tablet. Live streaming is only accessible to speciÂ“ ed users. No recordings are made, and no images are stored. The hospital staff determine camera positioning, programs viewing times and issues usernames and passwords.Â„ Natus Medical, makers of NicView web camera system While Duke Brothers stayed in the NICU at St. Thomas Midtown in Nashville, Tennessee, his parents could watch over him via a webcam attached to the top of his isolette. [BLAKE FARMER/WPLN]TODAYÂS WORKOUTForward fold increases exibility By Marlo Alleva More Content NowFitness is a necessity for all levels of ability. No matter the amount of weight lifted, the miles logged, or calories burned, movement is key. On those days when fitness canÂt be fit in, your body needs a bit of stretching. It can be as simple as reaching for the sky and holding it a little longer than normal. Our move today is a forward fold. This folding stretch will loosen your back, arms, glutes and hamstrings. And best of all, everyone can do it. Begin this stretch by standing tall, feet flat on the floor, about hip width apart. Holding your chest tall and core strong, take a deep breath and bend at the hips. Keep this forward motion somewhat slow, taking your time to articulate in your spine. Reaching with the hands toward the floor in front of your toes, you will begin to feel the targeted muscles pull slightly (in a good way). Start by reaching for the knees, if thatÂs good, go toward the shins, and if thatÂs good, reach all the way to the feet. Once you get to your deepest point, try holding it for about 10-15 seconds. Take another deep breath, and try to extend it slightly more. Repeat this a few times, then return to a standing position. Take a small break, then repeat the forward fold again. Marlo Alleva, an instructor at GoldÂs Gym and group fitness coordinator at Fontaine-Gills YMCA in Florida, can be reached at email@example.com.Marlo Alleva demonstrates a forward fold stretch.
