By Diane M. RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY „ The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners approved an ordinance concerning ad valorem taxes for businesses when they met in regular ses-sion June 26.The ordinance will allow tax breaks for businesses looking to set up shop in Holmes County. Attorney Brandon Young says it allows for incentives to bring busi-ness in.This ordinance is a way to incentivize businesses to come to our county by allow-ing tax breaks,Ž said Young.The tax breaks will only apply to new or expanding businesses that must bring jobs to and for Holmes County residents. Exemptions willapproved on a case by case basis to be decided by the BOCC. The exemptions can be up forto ten years and 100 percent depending on the amount of jobs the business provides.The measure received a unanimous vote. In other business, the board has decided to go back out to bid for fuel after being wrong-fully charged by their provider. Home Oil initially won the bid to supply the county with fuel but began charging the county for mileage which was not part of the agreed upon bid. Although the county tried to negotiate the terms with the company, an agreement was unable to be reached. County approves tax break for businessesBy Diane M. RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comHOLMES COUNTY Once again, the Local Option Gas Tax (LOGT) discussion between the county and its municipalities took place during a special session of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners on June 26.The LOGT is a five-cent gas tax on every gallon of motor fuel and special fuel sold in Holmes County with tax proceeds used exclusively for transportation expenditures within the county.In October of last year, the county proposed to give an extra percent to Ponce de Leon, while the remaining municipalities would stay at the current rate they receive. Bonifay at 10 percent, while Noma, Westville and Esto all receive one percent. The county would give up the one percent and go to 85 percent.The county, Bonifay, Noma, Esto and Ponce de Leon have all approved and signed the agreement, leav-ing Westville as unsigned.A representative for West-ville was unable to attend the meeting but advised Attor-ney Brandon Young, that the council needed more time before making a decision to sign the agreement.The breakdown and dis-bursement of the LOGT funds has been an ongoing discus-sion since 2014.LOGT still undecided for county, municipalitiesBy Jacqueline BostickTimes-Advertiser 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick jbostick@chipleypaper.comHOLMES COUNTYHolmes County School District maintained a its overall C for the 2017-2018 school year.

** A2 Wednesday, July 4, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Joe ReedyThe Associated PressTALLAHASSEE „Most new laws approved during Florida's recent legislative session take effect Sunday with the start of the state's fiscal year.The new statutes have an effect on Floridians of all ages, from bullying in schools to providing fur-ther protections against seniors.Here are some highlights of these 105 new laws:2018-19 budget: Almost $90 billion worth of spending that includes money for schools, universities and colleges, health care programs, the state's prison system, and roads takes effect.Opioids: Physicians will be limited to prescribing a three-day supply for acute pain, unless strict conditions are met for a seven-day supply. Physicians and pharmacists will also be required to consult the state's data-base to review a patient's history. Health care professionals also will need to take some courses on responsibly prescribing opioids.Criminal records: A person may request the removal of their arrest booking photo from a website or anywhere else where it can be publicly accessible. The request must be sent via registered mail and include proof of identification. This was approved during the 2017 session.School vouchers: The nation's first private school voucher program for bullied students takes effect. It allows students who are victims of bullying or other violence to transfer to a different public school or receive a private school voucher through the Hope Scholarship program. The vouchers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.Marriage: Anyone younger than 17 will not be allowed to marry. Anyone marrying a 17-year-old must be no more than two years older, while minors will need parental consent. The old law allowed 16and 17-year-olds to marry with the consent of both sets of parents. There was no minimum age if a judge approved and a pregnancy was involved.Sunshine Protection Act: Florida endorsed a plan to remain on Daylight Saving Time year 'round, but it needs Congress to amend existing federal law to allow the change. While the rest of the Eastern United States would set their clocks back in the fall, Florida wouldn't, leaving it with more sunshine in the evening during the winter.Financial pr otections: An injunction is being created for protection against exploitation of vulnerable adults. It was created mainly to prevent seniors from being financially exploited but also covers their guardian or anyone acting on behalf of them with their permission.Veterans benefits: The state will expand the reduction or waiving of professional licensing fees for military members, veterans, and their spouses. It also provides some regulatory waivers for certain military-related professional licensees.Foreign business: State agencies and local governments will be pro-hibited from entering into contract with companies that boycott Israel. State agencies are also banned from investing with those doing business with the government of Venezuela.Incarcerated parents: The Department of Chil-dren and Families will be required to involve the incarcerated parent of a child who receives child welfare services in their case planning and progress.State symbols: The Loggerhead Turtle permanently becomes the official state saltwater reptile and the Florida Cracker Horse (Marshtackie) the official state horse. Florida Cracker Cattle has also been designated as the official state heri-tage cattle breed.Statuary Hall: The state's request to replace the statue of Confederate Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith with civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune in Washington, D.C., becomes official.New Florida laws: Marriage age, opioids, criminal recordsOxycodone-acetaminophen pills are pictured. Effective today, physicians face more stringent requirements when prescribing opioids. [PATRICK SISON/AP] By Diane M. RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comHOLMES COUNTY „ Elections for County Commission seats will be held during the August 28 primaries. The race will not move on to the November elections as they will be decided in the primary.Incumbent Mickey Locke (R) will face a run off on the November ballot against republicans Brandon Newsom and Scott F. Prescott for the County Commissioner District 2 seat. Incumbent Danny Powell (R) is up against Edward O.

The items were supposed to be included in a purchase by grant funds but were among items not allowed. The $545 cost of the items was unable to be taken from their operating budget as funds are short after the purchase of tires and other essentials for the department. The county was in the process of determining where to find funds for the purchase when Commissioner Mickey Locke offered to foot the bill.You said you needed $545, correct,Ž said Locke. How about when this is over I will cut you a check and then you wont have to worry about it anymore?ŽCommissioner Phillip Music and Engineer Cliff Knauer each offered to pitch-in with Locke to cover the tab.Also at the meeting, commissioners approved to put the paving of the Tax Collector/Property Appraiser buildings parking lot out to bid. The projected cost of $20,000 will come out of the maintenance and repair budgets for those offices and $10,000 that was projected for insur-ance premium increase that didnt occur.A special session regarding garbage com-pany franchise contracts was scheduled for 8 a.m. on July 10.Holmes County Board of County Commission-ers will meet again in regular session at 9 a.m. on July 10. COUNTYFrom Page A1The initial interlocal agreement was made 30 years ago with the county receiving 86 percent, Bonifay 10 percent and Esto, Noma, Ponce de Leon and Westville each receiving one percent.In 2014, the agreement was renewed amid demands from Ponce de Leon for a bigger slice of the pie. In October 2016, all the municipalities, the county and an accountant from Carr, Riggs and Ingram Accounting firm gathered to discuss the matter. It was decided that all municipalities would gather their paperwork concerning transportation expenditures over the past five years to turn into the firm. Once submitted, the firm would determine the statu-tory disbursement of the funds to each party. Only Ponce de Leon, Bonifay and the county submit-ted paperwork.Should Westville decide to oppose the agreement, the municipalities will once again be required to submit paperwork for determination of the statutory disbursement to submit to the state before October 1. Should that not happen the funds would be frozen until an agree-ment or disbursement be determined.The interlocal agreement will last for five years, and the re-evaluated for the statutory formula to be used for 10 years thereafter.Young is expected to attend Westvilles next regular session council meeting to express the importance and urgency in coming to an agreement.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett In a recent ruling, a circuit court judge effectively advised the Florida Legislature that it cannot implement a constitutional amendment any way that its members see fit. Good for the judge. Good for Floridians „ in this case, the overwhelming majority of voters who in 2014 supported Amendment 1, which was simply titled Water and Land Conservation „ Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands.Ž Environmental groups challenged the Legislatures implementation of the amendment, which was endorsed by 75 percent (4.2 million) of those who voted on the measure. The amendment had several key requirements, and was proposed and adopted because the Legislature and governor failed to perform two vital tasks: € Allocate sufficient revenue to satisfy a portion of the Florida Constitution that states: It shall be the policy of the state to conserve and protect its natural resources and scenic beauty. Adequate provision shall be made by law ... for the conservation and protection of natural resources.Ž € Meet the terms and intent of the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. Florida and its taxpayers made substantial investments in acquisition and preservation until 2009, when the state drastically reduced or eliminated funding of the premier program for acquisition „ Florida Forever. The Great Recession did force the Legislature to prioritize spending, and the revenues for the acquisition fund „ from documentary stamps on real estate transactions „ plummeted. But after the recession, conservation funding still lagged while revenues rose. Amendment 1 had two main requirements: € The state would allocate 33 percent of net revenues from the so-called doc stamps to water and land conservation. € The revenues would be used to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites.Ž The plaintiffs made a compelling case that the Legislature had not fulfilled the terms of the amendment. They cited a laundry list of expenses that, we suspect, few Floridians who voted for Amendment 1 would view as consistent with the amendments language and their intent. For instance, the lawsuit cited the use of funds for vehicles, office personnel and other expenditures that should be covered by the general fund. Circuit Judge Charles Dodson, based in Leon County clearly agreed with the plaintiffs arguments. He noted that proposed amendments to the state constitution are reviewed by the Florida Supreme Court for, among other things, clarity. An appeal is likely, unfortunately. But this much is clear for now: At least one judge agreed that the implementation of Amendment One was mishandled, a view likely consistent with that of the 4.2 million Floridians who voted in favor of the measure. This editorial first appeared in the Sarasota Herald Tribune.Judge backs voters on land conservationThe wailing in our country about the invasion of immigrantsŽ has been long and loud. As one complainant put it, Few of their children in the country learn English... The signs in our streets have inscriptions in both languages...Unless the str eam of the importation could be turned they will soon so outnumber us that all the advantages we have will not be able to preserve our language, and even our government will become precarious.Ž Thats not some diatribe from one of todays Republican congress. Its the anxious cry of none other than Ben Franklin, deploring the wave of Germans pouring into the colony of Pennsylvania in the 1750s. Thus, anti-immigrant eruptions are older than the U.S. itself, and theyve flared up periodically throughout our history, targeting the Irish, French, Italians and Chinese among others. Even Donald Trumps current proposal to wall off our border is not a new bit of nuttiness „ around the time of the nations founding, John Jay, who later became the first chief justice of the Supreme Court, proposed a wall of brass around the country for the exclusion of Catholics.Ž Luckily for the development and enrich ment of our country, these past public frenzies ultimately failed to exclude the teeming masses, and those uproars now appear through the telescope of time to have been some combination of ridiculous panic, political demagoguery and xenophobic ugliness. Still, this does not mean that the publics anxiety and simmering anger about todays massive influx of Central and South Americans coming illegally across our shared border is illegitimate. However, most of what the politicians and pundits are saying about it is illegitimate. The fact that we are resorting to the construction of an enormous fence between two friendly nations admits to an abject failure by policymakers, who are so bereft of ideas, honesty, courage and morality that all they can do is to try walling off the problem. Weve had experience here in Texas with the futility of tall border fences. Molly Ivins reported a beer-induced incident that took place in 1983. Walling off Mexico had been proposed back then by the Reaganauts, and a test fence had been built way down in the Big Bend outpost of Terlingua. This little town also happened to be the site of a renowned chili cook-off that Molly helped judge, and it attracted a big crowd of impish, beer-drinking chiliheads. There stood the barrier, 17 feet tall and topped with barbwire. It didnt take many beers before the first-ever Terlingua Memorial Over, Under, or Through the Mexican Fence Climbing ContestŽ was cooked up. Winning time: 30 seconds. The Mexican government and people are insulted and appalled by the wall; ranchers, mayors, and families living on either side of the border hate it; environmentalists are aghast at its destructive impact on the ecology of the area. Still, its being built.A wall wont x immigration Jim HightowerJuly will mark the 85th year since the killing that marred the summer days of my relatives. The area was shocked in July of 1933 by the shooting death of Joseph Matt Brock and his sixteen year old son Fred. I had always heard reference to that killing, but since I was only a toddler, years ago I asked my father, an eye witness to the killing, to recount the details of the tragedy to me. He told it like this. Although the country was in the throes of the Great Depression, Caryville was a bustling saw-mill town with many people employed by the HendersonWaites Lumber ompany. There was the company store, a drug store, a doctor, a dry cleaner, a shoe repair shop and I dont know what all else. On payday all employees would be in town to draw their pay, and if it wasnt payday, they would come on Saturday to draw against their time so that they could buy groceries and supplies for the coming week. It was a Saturday afternoon, that July 1, 1933. My Daddy had parked his Model A pickup with produce to sell in front of the commissary. His cousin, Joe Brock, drove up and parked his Model A Road ster beside his pick up. He walked by where my Dad was and they exchanged greetings. Washington County had just elected a new sheriff, John Harrell, who had defeated Dan Brock. Joe Brock had served as a deputy previously and continued to carry a gun al though he had no permit. There was bad blood between the Harrell supporters and the Brocks. Harvey Hinson was serving as a deputy for Harrell. As Joe walked by and spoke to my dad, Mr. Hinson stepped out and said, Joe Brock, I want to know by what authority you carry that gun.Ž Joe took the gun by the barrel, tapped the butt of it on Hinsons head and said, Ill show you by what authority I carry this (expletive) gun.Ž From the sidewalk the lumber company Quarter Boss, Charlie Tharpe, called out, Drop that gun!Ž Joe whirled and aimed at Tharpe, but instead of firing the gun snapped. Then Tharpes gun rang out and Joe fell. His 16 year-old son, Fred, rushed to his fathers side, was bending over his fallen father, when he was felled by ano ther bullet from Tharpes gun. He was killed instantly. Tharpe claimed that Fred had picked up his Dads gun and was attempting to shoot him, but the eye witness, Hugh Wells, said that wasnt true. In 2001 when my dad was recounting this story, he could still hear Joes pistol snap and see that tall gangly 16 year-old bending over his Dads body. He could also remember helping Marvin, Joes brother, lift Joes and Freds bodies onto Joes Roadster. That night, my Daddy went up to Mrs. Brocks house where Joe and Fred were laid out. There were no funeral directors in that time. Daddy was surprised to find that Joe was hit with three bullets. Even though he was right there, the shots went off with such rapid succession, he thought only one shot had felled Brock. No criminal charges were filed in the case, but Joes widow Sadie Brock filed civil charges against the Henderson-Waits Company. Although Hugh Wells was subpoenaed as a witness, he was never allowed to testify. I am not sure whether the case was heard by a jury or just the judge, but it was dismissed without her being granted any compensation for the death of her husband and son. Hugh Wells recounted another memory when he told me about the killings. While Joe Brock was serving as deputy sheriff at an earlier time, the Washington County seat was at Vernon. He arrested Tom Methinie on some charge and came to their home near Bonifay on horseback to borrow their surrey to take the prisoner to Vernon to jail. Joe Brock was the grandson of my great-grandfather Tom Brocks brother, Josh and Sarilda Yates Brock. I wr ote in an earlier article about the prolific Tom Brock family. He and uncle Josh were married to Yates sisters and Josh Brock also produced a big family. The Heritage of Washington County, Florida contains this story. It may be obtained at the Washington County Historical Society in Vernon.Happy Corner: The killing of Joe and Fred Brock Hazel Tison

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, July 4, 2018 A5 LOCAL & STATEStaff ReportWESTVILLE „ Two Holmes County residents are facing felony drug charges following a search warrant served Wednesday in Westville, according to a Holmes County Sheriffs Office news release.Officers executed the warrant at 1004 Rum Road shortly before 1 p.m., making contact with Albert DannyŽ Graham, Jr., 41, and Pixie Webb, 54, the release stated. Inside the home, investigators discovered several clear bags contain-ing methamphetamine, a loaded handgun, and drug paraphernalia.Graham and Webb were arrested and booked into the Holmes County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, according to the Holmes County Sher-iffs Office.Search warrant leads to two arrestsGraham Webb By Staff ReportHOLMES COUNTY … An incident that began at Vortex Springs on June 29 leaves one man arrested on multiple charges after a high speed chase, according to a release from Holmes County Sheriffs Office.A HCSO deputy was work-ing special detail at Vortex Springs when he observed a maroon four-door car driving erratically through the park, nearly striking several young children.When the driver, later identified as Jonathan Pettis, 31, stopped, he emerged from the car with a beer in his hand but returned to the vehicle and left the park when the deputy tried to make contact with him.The deputy then attempted to stop the vehicle, but Pettis refused to stop, initiating a pursuit that continued down Highway 81 to White Road and then down Minger Road with speeds reaching more than 100 miles an hour.Pettis nearly struck a deputy during the pursuit and was finally taken into custody on Sand Pond Road.Pettis is charged with flee-ing and attempting to elude, aggravated assault with motor vehicle, driving while license suspended, reckless driving, and assault on a law enforcement officer.High-speed chase ends with one mans arrestStaff ReportBONIFAY „ Three juveniles have been charged in connection to several burglaries and thefts that have taken place over the last two weeks, according to a Holmes County Sheriffs Office news release.The arrests come after an investigation by the Holmes County Sheriffs Office which led to the recovery of a scooter and an ATV, taken from residences in Bonifay and Ponce de Leon, respectively, according to the release.The juveniles were charged with burglary and grand theft.At least one of the juveniles arrested in those cases is also expected to be among those charged with three separate car burglaries which took place in Bonifay around the same time on Weeks Street, Norman Lane, and Chance Road, the release stated. Investigators are currently preparing arrests warrants for subjects involved in the burglaries, and those arrests are to come.Juveniles charged with grand theft and burglary Pettis By Dara Kam News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ After spending nearly a century in the nations capital, Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith is moving to Tavares.A bronze statue of the Confederate general will be relocated from the National Statuary Hall in Washington to a museum housed in the same building as the Lake County Sheriffs Office, a five-member state panel decided Thursday.The Lake County Historical Society and Museums pro-posal for the Smith statue was one of just three submitted to the State Location Selection Committee by a Wednesday deadline, a signal that, even in a Southern state like Florida, many communities are shying away from controversial Civil War symbols.Bob Grenier, the curator of the museum and head of the Lake County Historical Society, urged the committee to support his plan to move the statue to the center of the state, where millions of tourists annually visit nearby Orlando.Located in a building that also houses the countys chief law-enforcement official, the statue will be guarded around the clock, promised Grenier, who said hes been working on the proposal for two years.And the historian vowed that the relocation would be a permanent move for Smiths statue, another factor the panel considered in its selec-tion process.This building aint going anywhere,Ž he said, adding that the building just underwent a $1 million renovation. The sheriff aint going any-where. The museum aint going anywhere.ŽThe Legislature voted in 2016 to remove the Smith statue from the National Stat-uary Hall, where the general has represented the Sunshine State since 1922. The move to replace the statue came during a nationwide backlash against Confederate symbols in the wake of the 2015 shooting deaths of nine African-Amer-ican worshippers at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C.But it wasnt until this year that the Republican-dominated Legislature agreed on a replacement for the Confed-erate general, finally settling on civil-rights leader and educator Mary McLeod Bethune.Confederate general statue headed to Lake County

There were no court documents listing an attor-ney for him, and he couldnt be reached for comment.PARISDrones buzzed French prison months before copter escapeDrones seen buzzing above a French prison months ago may have been on a recon-naissance mission ahead of the helicopter escape of a notori-ous French criminal „ his second breakout in five years.Frances justice minister said Monday that several drones were spotted flying over Reau Prison south of Paris a few months ago. She speculated they were linked to the escape Sunday of career criminal and murder convict Redoine Faid.Heavily armed men landed a helicopter in a prison court-yard, used a grinding machine to break open the door of the visiting room where Faid was seeing his brother, and escorted the prisoner to freedom.SAN FRANCISCOCalif. high court: Yelp cant be ordered to remove postsOnline review site Yelp.com cannot be ordered to remove posts against a San Francisco law firm that a judge determined were defamatory, a divided California Supreme Court ruled Monday in a case that internet companies had warned could be used to silence online speech.Justices agreed in a 4-3 opinion, saying removal orders such as the one attorney Dawn Hassell obtained against Yelp could interfere with and undermine the viability of an online platform.Ž The deci-sion overturned a lower court ruling that Yelp had said could lead to the removal of negative reviews from the popular web-site and leave consumers with a skewed assessment of res-taurants and other businesses.NOUAKCHOTT, MAURITANIAAfrican leaders talk security with French presidentAfrican heads of state have pledged to coordinate efforts to improve the continents security and defeat jihadist organizations, particularly in Nigeria and the Sahel region, during talks Monday at the 31st African Union summit held in Mauritanias capital.French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Nouakchott Monday to discuss the battle against Islamic extremism and ways to finance counterterrorism and peacekeeping operations.Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz met Macron at the airport, and praised the French pres-ident for his work for the development of the region and the fight against terror-ism and insecurity.ŽDALLASDefunct bridal shop wants Texas Ebola lawsuit revivedA shuttered Ohio bridal shop says in a court filing that its lawsuit against a Dallas hospi-tal should be revived because the facility was negligent in its care of a nurse who contracted Ebola before visiting the store.Coming Attractions Bridal & Formal of Akron, Ohio, is asking the Texas Supreme Court to hear the case after an appeals court in May determined the shop hadnt substantiated its claims and dismissed the lawsuit.

[ESO VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] ZURICHPeople demonstrate against the arrival of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Monday in Bern, Switzerland. Rouhani began a two-day visit to Switzerland on Monday that was expected to focus on salvaging progress from the nuclear deal the United States left. Rouhanis trip to the Alpine nation was to include deal-signings, talks and a news conference before he leaves for a visit in neighboring Austria.

On the back are the words great again,Ž an apparent reference to Trumps campaign slogan, Make America Great Again.Ž Traf“ ckers sometimes produce uniquely shaped or colored illegal drugs as a marketing technique to distinguish their wares from the competition. [INDIANA STATE POLICE PERU POST VIA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Deb Riechmann and Matthew PenningtonThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ As Sec-retary of State Mike Pompeo prepares to travel this week to North Korea, experts cautioned that the Trump administrations plan to dis-mantle the Norths nuclear weapons and missiles in a year is both unrealistic and risky.The State Department said Pompeo would arrive Friday on his third visit to Pyong-yang in three months. It will be the first visit by a senior U.S. official since President Donald Trumps historic meeting with Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore, where the North Korean leader committed to com-plete denuclearizationŽ of the Korean Peninsula.Trumps questionable claim afterward that the North was no longer a nuclear threat was soon dis-placed by doubts about how to achieve denuclearization, a goal that has eluded U.S. administrations for the past quarter-century since Pyongyang began producing fissile material for bombs.Less than three weeks ago, Pompeo said the United States wanted North Korea to take majorŽ nuclear disarmament steps within the next two years „ before the end of Trumps first term in January 2021. Even that was viewed as bullish by nonproliferation experts considering the scale of North Koreas weapons program and its history of evasion and reluctance to allow verification of disar-mament agreements.But on Sunday, Trumps national security adviser, John Bolton, publicized the more ambitious one-year plan that he said Pompeo will be discussing with the North Koreans. Bolton, who has expressed hard-line views on North Korea, said that if Pyongyang has decided to give up its nuclear weapons program and is cooperative, then we can move very quicklyŽ and they can win sanctions relief and aid from South Korea and Japan.The rapid timeline he pro-posed contrasts with more measured, methodical strat-egies that most North Korea experts insist are needed to produce a lasting denuclear-ization agreement. They say any solid deal will require Kim to be completely trans-parent about his program „ at a time when intelligence reports suggest he will try to deceive the United States about the extent of his covert weapons or facilities.The one-year plan is pred-icated on the North Koreans rolling over and playing dead,Ž said Joel Wit, a former State Department official who helped negotiate a 1994 agreement that temporarily froze Pyongyangs nuclear program. If its our going-in position, its fine. We should give it a try and see where it goes. If its our bottom line, its dead on arrival and then provides a pretext for John Bolton to make mischief.ŽTo date, Kim has halted nuclear and missile tests and has destroyed tunnels at the Norths nuclear test site, but the authoritarian nation has yet to take concrete steps toward abandoning its weapons programs. Recent think tank analyses using satellite imagery suggest that Pyongyang may even be expanding some facilities linked to its missile and nuclear programs.The Washington Post on Saturday cited unnamed U.S. intelligence officials as concluding that North Korea does not intend to fully sur-render its nuclear stockpile. Evidence collected since the summit points to preparations to deceive the U.S. about the number of nuclear warheads in North Koreas arsenal as well as the exis-tence of undisclosed facilities used to make fissile material for nuclear bombs, according to the report. Some aspects of the updated intelligence were reported Friday by NBC News.A U.S. official told The Associated Press that the Posts report was accurate and that the assessment reflected the consistent view across U.S. government agencies for the past several weeks. The official was not authorized to comment pub-licly on the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.Experts: Speedy denuking unlikelyScientists say plan for denuclearization unrealistic as talks between US, NKorea resumeNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un, center, visits Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill on Sunday in Sinuiju, North Korea.

Or last years platemaster, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. WINNER: Brad Keselowski REST OF TOP 5: Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick FIRST ONE OUT: Denny Hamlin DARK HORSE: Aric Almirola DONT BE SURPRISED IF: We see a big run from the 2012 NASCAR Cup Series champion. KURT BUSCH VS. KEVIN HARVICK: Busch was very unhappy with his StewartHaas Racing teammate for snatching the Stage 2 victory away from him on Lap 160. The two cars made contact to the “ nish line. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Of course, the powers that be at SHR will have a sit-down with Busch, pointing out that Harvick has a series-leading “ ve Cup Series wins this season. Why were the two Kyles OK with all the rough stuff on Chicagolands “ nal lap?Kyle Larson was happy because he made a late charge, had a chance to win and seems to genuinely enjoy that brand of give-and-take „ it reminds him of his short-track roots. Kyle Busch was happy because it ended with him holding the checkered ” ag. Its all good hard racin until Kyle gets the short straw. He likely wouldve had a different opinion if he hadnt been able to get back to Larsons bumper. Does someone crash the playoffs party with a surprise win this week?Its always possible at a plate race, but lets not consider Aric Almirola a shocker. Hes been running too well all season, and he was up front near the very end in February at Daytona.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, July 4, 2018 B1By Diane M. RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.com HOLMES COUNTY By time Holmes County native Courtney Blanton was 27 years old, she had suffered from an 11-year addiction to drugs and alcohol.My addiction took me to a very dark place in my life,Ž Blanton said. I became homeless toward the end of my addiction. The last three years, I was in and out of hotel rooms from state to state, and I had begun intravenously using drugs.ŽIt wasnt until her second arrest that Blanton decided to reach out for help. After spending a month in the Holmes County Jail on felony drug charges, Blanton requested a chance for recov-ery at The Refuge Ranch, a public charity in Okeechobee that offers faith-based recov-ery and transition for women.Now two years sober, Blanton says her life was so drastically changed by her arrest and subsequent entry into the program that she chose to remain at the ranch and is teaching classes to other women in recovery.It is so good to know that there is an effort to ensure recovery is an option for those willing to seek it,Ž Blanton said. My arrest truly saved my life.ŽBlantons story was like so many heard Thursday night at the Faith in Recovery, an event geared at bringing law enforcement and the community together to build a recovery-oriented system of care. In addition to guest speak-ers, vendors were on hand at the Holmes County Ag Center to educate families and those seeking recovery on available resources.The event was sponsored by Holmes County Sheriffs Office and Department of Children and Families in partnership with Jackson and Washington County Sheriffs Offices.Holmes County Sheriff John Tate spoke to those in attendance, stating that recovery is an important tool in the war on drugs and the preservation of families.Nearly everyone knows someone battling addiction,Ž Sheriff Tate said. As law enforcement officers, we do arrest those who sell drugs, but the key component of helping facilitate a strong system of support and recovery for those trying to overcome addiction cannot be overlooked. It is important that we send a strong message that while we are tough on those who sell this poison, we are also here to help find recovery options for those seeking to overcome addiction.ŽThe guest speaker was Tallahassee Police Officer Sean Wyman, who, at just 10 years old, became so fed up with repeated beatings and other daily abuses from his drug-dealer step-father that he picked up a gun lying on his parents bedroom floor and nearly shot his stepfather as he slept.Instead, Wyman ran away from home, beginning a 30-year cycle of foster homes and abuses of his own that lasted throughout his time of service as an Army Ranger and in his early years as a Tallahas-see Police Officer.Then one day, Wyman realized he needed to stop running and took back his life. Today, Wyman seeks to inspire others to recover from addic-tion and other self-destructive behavior. As a law enforcement officer and trainer of 18 years, army veteran, fat her of three, and husband of 14 years, Sean shares his story and the les-sons learned with the purpose of helping others.HCSO, DCF host Faith in RecoveryCourtney Blantons mugshot from her 2016 arrest on felony drug charges, the arrest she says saved her life.

While its second weekend drop is about 10 percent steeper than that of the first film, world-wide, the film has grossed $932.4 million to date and is barreling toward the $1 billion mark.The dinosaurs didnt gobble up all the attention this weekend, however. Incredibles 2,Ž now in its third weekend in theaters, took second place with $45.5 million, bringing its domestic total to $439.7 million.North American audiences came out in larger than expected numbers for both the action thriller Sicario: Day of the SoldadoŽ and Uncle Drew.ŽThe SicarioŽ sequel starring Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro earned $19 million to take third place. The film, distributed by Sony Pictures, cost a reported $35 to $40 million to produce.Landing in fourth place was the basketball comedy Uncle Drew,Ž which features NBA All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Shaquille ONeal. With a pr oduction price tag under $20 million, the film exceeded expectations grossing $15.5 million and got audience stamp of approval with an A CinemaScore.The marketing campaign included spots during the NBA playoffs and finals, a Wheaties box featuring Irving as Uncle Drew, and an Uncle Drew capsule col-lection from Nike.Jurassic World 2 takes No. 1 againBy Ken ThomasThe Associated PressBERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. „ President Donald Trump intends to delay signing a revised version of the North American Free Trade Agree-ment until after the fall midterm elections, a move aimed at reaching a better deal with Canada and Mexico.Trump said in an interview that aired Sunday that he could quickly sign an agreement with the United States neighbors, but Im not happy with it. I want to make it more fair.Ž Asked about the timing of an agreement, Trump said: I want to wait until after the election.ŽThe presidents decision to push back the NAFTA talks comes as the U.S. and Canada have been engaged in a tit-for-tat trade dispute over Trumps tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. Canada announced billions of dollars in retaliatory tariffs against the U.S. on Friday, and the president signaled the trade rattling could continue.In the interview on Fox News Channels Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo,Ž Trump again threatened to impose tariffs on imported cars, trucks and auto parts, saying, The cars are the big ones.Ž The move has been viewed as a possible negotiating ploy to restart NAFTA talks, which could resume following Sun-days elections in Mexico.If the U.S. moved forward with tariffs on auto imports, it would be a blow to Canadas economy because of the critical nature that the auto industry plays in the country. The U.S. Commerce Department is expected to hold hearings on auto tariffs in late July and to complete its investigation into auto imports later this summer.Trump has sought to renegotiate NAFTA to encourage manufacturers to invest more in America and shift produc-tion from low-wage Mexico to the United States. The talks have stalled over several issues, including Trumps insistence on a clause that would end NAFTA every five years unless all three coun-tries agree to sustain it.The president has suggested he may pursue separate trade pacts with Canada and Mexico instead of continuing with a three-country deal. But any reworked deal would need to be considered by Congress, and negotiators missed a self-imposed deadline to wrap up the talks by mid-May to allow it to be considered by lawmakers before the November elections.Trump has clashed with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over trade, with the U.S. president tweet-ing last month after departing the G-7 meetings in Quebec that Trudeau was weakŽ and dishonest.ŽTrump to delay NAFTA deal until after midtermsINSIDER Q&AEllevest founder on how Wall Street fails women Sallie Krawcheck knows about being a woman in a mans world.A Wall Street veteran, Krawcheck led Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney and Citi Private as CEO. She saw that the traditional world of finance was not properly meeting the needs of women. Its an industry led by men that sets goals based on the needs, prefer-ences and income of men.So in 2016 she launched Ellevest, a digital investment advisory firm for women.Krawcheck spoke to AP about how Ellevest designs its portfolios to take into account marked differences between men and womens financial lives, like lower pay, longer lifes-pans and career absences. Q. Why do you think women need an invest-ment service tailored to them?A. Its not that I think they do, its that the research demonstrates they do. We put in thou-sands of hours of research and found that many of the myths about women in investing „ women are too risk averse, they need hand holding more „ are all false. We turned our attention to the fact that (the traditional industry setup) is just not working for them. What motivates a woman to invest is not winning but reaching her goals „ buying a house, starting a business, retir-ing comfortably.By Amir VahdatThe Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran „ Iran on Sunday asked fellow OPEC members to refrain from any unilateral measuresŽ to increase oil production beyond the 1 million additional barrels of crude a day it already agreed to, a warning to Saudi Arabia after Pres-ident Donald Trump said the kingdom would increase production.The Iranian warning, in a letter to the United Arab Emirates energy minister, comes as Tehran faces a U.S. push to get its allies to stop buying its oil as part of Trumps decision to pull America from the nuclear deal with world powers.Meanwhile, Irans first vice president said the countrys private sector will be able to buy and export crude oil under a new plan to combat U.S. sanctions.Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh wrote to Emirati Energy Min-ister Suhail Mohamed al-Mazrouei, who now is serving as OPECs president. The letter, published by the Iranian Oil Ministrys SHANA news agency, did not directly name Saudi Arabia, Irans Mideast rival, but the ultraconservative kingdom was clearly its target.OPEC decisions by no means warrant any action by some of its member countries in pursuit of the call for production increase by U.S., politically motivated against Iran,Ž Zanganeh wrote. As we are all in agreement to depoliticize our efforts in the OPEC, we should not let others take politicized measures targeting OPECs unity and independence.ŽMembers of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries cartel led by Saudi Arabia and noncartel members agreed this month to pump 1 million barrels more crude oil per day, a move that should help contain the recent rise in global energy prices.But on Saturday, Trump wrote on Twit-ter that he had received assurances from King Salman of Saudi Arabia that the kingdom will increase oil production, maybe up to 2,000,000 barrelsŽ in response to turmoil in Iran and Venezuela.Saudi Arabia acknowl-edged the call took place, but mentioned no production targets. Saudi Arabia currently produces some 10 million barrels of crude oil a day. Its record is 10.72 mil-lion barrels a dayIn a statement issued Saturday night, the White House seemed to walk back Trumps tweet.King Salman affirmed that the kingdom maintains a 2-million-barrel-per-day spare capacity, which it will prudently use if and when necessary to ensure market balance and stability, and in coordination with its producer partners, to respond to any eventu-ality,Ž the statement said.Iran asks OPEC to refrain from oil hikes BUSINESS WHAT TO WATCH FOR TODAY€ Institute for Supply Management releases its manufacturing index for June A member of the A/V team straightens Canadian ” ags in front of rolls of coated steel Friday at Stelco in Hamilton, Ontario, before a visit by Chrystia Freeland, the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs.

** B4 Wednesday, July 4, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser FAITHThe flight was almost cancelled. The previous flight had been full, so full in fact that they told us we were overweight and two gracious travelers volunteered to take a voucher and another flight. There may have been clapping as the rest of us were happy not to be involved in a lotteryfor-seats situation. I knew that we were flying into a storm but it was spring in North Dakota so there will always be snow. At some point, the quick trip began to catch up to me. It was a fly in, move furniture, pack out and clean out, visit family then fly out trip „ all in a three-day period. Im generally allergic to exercise so every muscle in my body was sore. I didnt sleep well away from home and frankly I was bloated and grumpy. I just wanted to get home to my bed, my dogs and my people. The pilot announced that we were within the weight limit and had taken on extra fuel since the weather was getting worse at our destination. Its in moments like these when my anxiety begins to climb so I leaned on my faith. I listened to a whole playlist of my Jesus music so I could just close my eyes and focus on the good news. I must have drifted off to sleep because I woke to a piercing brightness. We were flying above the storms and the moment was surreal, just a perfect reflection of how we can be stuck in the storm and forget that above the craziness around us there beautiful peace and light. The next time I awoke, we were descending into the storm to make our way to our Taking for granted K a l y n n B r a z e a l Kalynn Brazeal destination. The only lights that glowed were the random homesteads light or an oil pad flare, the rest of the land was a shadow of buttes and snow. As we came in for approach, I texted my better half that we were landing. I knew that he had just gotten home from a daunting trip of his own and was wrangling the kids and dogs. I and my fellow passengers sat in that little plane watching the snowplows that had just spent time clearing the runways so that we could land. There I was without a coat, in capris and flats ready to deplane and all I could think was, thank you, Lord that my husband will be waiting for me with a coat in the lobby of our little airport.Ž Yet as I swept into that little lobby, there was no better half waiting holding out a coat (like the last time when I didnt check the weather before taking a trip). What? I was so confused. So while waiting on the luggage to get unloaded, I stepped outside, thinking that maybe he was waiting in a warm truck in line to pick me up. I kept checking my phone for a text but nothing? Frustrated at this point, I went back inside and waited for my bags and watching the door for his late arrival. He didnt come. Finally my bags were unloaded and I struggled to drag my rolling suitcase through the parking lot to where my truck was parked. My truck that was covered in snow and ice. I started crying. I struggled to get that suitcase into the truck then, using my hands, I wiped enough snow off the side of the door to open it and crank it up. I sat there hysterically crying... because I realized that I took for granted for all the times that my better half has thought ahead for me. He always shovels out the driveway before leaving for work, so I wont have to. He heats up my truck to make my day start off warm. Hes thoughtful and constant in how he cares for me... and I took that for granted on a day when he had just as much going on as I did. I defrosted enough of the windshield that I could inch my way home. I was cold and tired, still crying and snotting all over myself when as I pulled onto our street, I see my husband there finishing up shoveling the driveway so I can pull into the garage.

She is preceded in death by her sisters Ruby and Lois, and her brothers Lloyd, Edward, Leslie, Cleveland, Carlos (Cob), Tilmon and Melvin. Miss Letha is survived by her daughters, Barbara Ann and Betty Sue, and brother, Paul James Sheffield (June). Miss Letha was a native of Florida and, except for 14 years in Louisiana, she spent all her life there. Her Daddy moved the family from Graceville when she was very young, settling them in the Chicora community located in Polk County. After finishing high school, Miss Letha worked for a while in Plant City and then married Obie Lee Barlow in 1946. Miss Letha had 2 daughters, Barbara Ann and Betty Sue.

In addition to working with her hands, she enjoyed traveling. She visited several western states, including Alaska, as well as Georgia, Tennessee, Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia. She also enjoyed several cruises to islands in the Caribbean and off the coast of Mexico. Even though Miss Letha moved to Louisiana in 2003, she never could get the sand out of her shoes and she always wanted to go back to Florida, especially near Graceville. She has such fond memories of good times visiting extended family around Graceville „ aunts, uncles and cousins like the Calloways, Cooleys, Fowlers, Hams, Hicks, Sheffields, Shivers and Whites.

I admired his brilliance and the courage he demonstrated in his fight with ALS. In March Dr. Hawking died at 76. A couple weeks ago, June 15, his ashes were buried in Westminster Abbey between the graves of Charles Darwin and Isaac Newton. Hawking was diagnosed with ALS in 1963 when he was 21. The doctors gave him two years to live. For 55 years he defied the odds. His best known work, A Brief History of Time,Ž sold more than three million copies. I was saddened a few years ago when he said, I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.Ž It is difficult for me to comprehend how such a brilliant mind can reach the conclusion that all we observe in the universe is an accident, that there is no intelligent force or design behind our existence. It seems as illogical to me as finding a state-of-the-art functioning PC in the desert and concluding it just accidentally evolved from nowhere. The question Hawking dealt with is bigger than any religion or denominational expression. It is also bigger than science. It is a question we all must face and answer. How we answer it makes a great deal of difference in how we live and how meaningful our lives are. Hawking concluded that since there is no God, humans should seek to live the most valuable lives they can while on Earth. This too, makes no sense to me. If there is no God we are sucked into a black hole of non-existence and non-meaning. What does it matter? If we argue that love matters then we are thrown back into the very lap of God. Love is the greatest and most mysterious reality in our existence, eclipsing all other discoveries. Who wants to live in a world of technological perfection and scientific achievement without love? A loveless world would leave us shallow, fragmented, lonely, isolated, fearful, and miserable. Here lies the greatest truth: God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.Ž (1 John 4:16). We love because He first loved us.Ž God demonstrated His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.Ž Faith or non-faith is a choice. We can choose to believe that our world is the result of a creative God who desired and designed our existence from the tiniest molecule to the most distant star or we can choose not to believe. The historical resurrection of Jesus makes this more than wishful thinking. The idea that human beings are no more than computers that will one day crash and be discarded as junk leads nowhere. For my part, I will choose to believe. It is the only conclusion that seems to make any sense.Choosing faith B i l l T i n s l e y Bill Tinsley

On June 26, the Court ruled against the state of California, in a 5-4 decision, that forces licensed preg-nancy centers to post notices about free or low-cost state programs, including abortion services, and requires unlicensed centers to inform clients they are not medical facilities. The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates had argued the informed consentŽ laws were warranted on the verge of a medical procedure, but not for counseling women to continue pregnancy at the centers. The state had argued there were numerous preg-nancy centers that deceived and misinformed clients by posing as medical clinics.
