Approval to do so was given when they met in regular session July 10.Attorney Brandon Young said he believes with signatures from the majority of the municipalities, the state should accept the interlocal agreement for funds dis-bursement according to state statutes.From my understanding of the statute, we should be able to file the interlocal agreement with the signatures that we have,Ž said Young. I will still go talk with Westville Town Council to gain their signature; but I will still move ahead without it if we have to.ŽThe county has until Oct. 1 to file the agreement before the state holds the funds until an agreement can be reached.Also at the meeting, commissioners approved the purchase of three John Deere bush hogs and two Tiger Motrims totaling $159,105.36. The cost will be covered by old FEMA funds from a 2009 disaster that has been closed out.Young was tasked with drawing up a five-year contract with the garbage pick up franchisees that currently operate in the county. The draft is expected to be brought back at the next meeting.The board also appointed Sandy Spear as the newest member of the Career Source Chipola Board.

Cur-rent Chairman the Hon. Judge Colby Peel said the loss of Mrs. Hester is deeply felt because of all she has done for the fes-tival over the years."No family has meant more or done more for the Panhandle Watermelon Festival than the Wells family, and Mrs. Hester will be greatly missed by all who knew her," Peel said.Wells attended Esto School through the ninth grade and then transferred to Holmes County High School where she graduated in 1945. She was a member of Mt. Zion Church near Esto, and was baptized in nearby Ten Mile Creek.After marrying Perry on October 4, 1952 in Cottonwood, Alabama, the Wells bought their first home in Panama City. Over the years, the family's religious service would extend to Primitive Baptist churches in Panama City, and the Bethel community and Chipley Chapel in Wash-ington County.In 1970, the Wells family moved to Chipley to own and operate the Sears Catalog store something of which Hester was an integral part. The couple later owned and operated a Montgomery Ward Cata-log store. Wells later ran the historic T.L. Wells and Bro. department store as well as opened the Northwest Florida Music Park and Campground.Hester and Perry had four boys, Tim, Grant, Emory and Gordon along with nine grandchildren one of whom preceded Hester in death. WELLSFrom Page A1 By David 850-653-8894EASTPOINT „ The light at the end of a long, dark, fire-ravaged tunnel is reflecting this week off the shine of a new trailer.Through a coordinated effort assisted by Franklin County, state and federal officials, more than two dozen trailers for tempo-rary housing began arriving Wednesday, to help shelter the 36 families displaced by the Lime Rock Road fire that ravaged Buck Street, Ridge Road and Wilderness Road on June 24.Twenty-four trailers had all arrived and were being cleaned and prepared Saturday at the Franklin County Sheriffs Office. An additional three travel trailers have been donated by individuals.At a special meeting Monday afternoon, county officials voted unanimously to approve the purchase of 24 surplus mobile homes from the federal General Services Administration. The mobile homes were used by the Federal Emer-gency Management Agency to shelter victims of Hurri-canes Irma in the Keys.The price tag for the tem-porary units $8,500 each, for a total cost, including transportation from Homestead, of $204,000. This represents a savings of 37 percent over their market value.The county fronted the money for the trailers, but they wont be owning them long, as they will soon be transferred into the hands of the Capital Area Community Action Agency, which will be administer-ing their usage. Regulations restrict the purchase to government entities, which is why the county had to serve as a middle man for the transaction.The nonprofit Capital Area will oversee the units for up to six months and provide case management to help the displaced fami-lies, including 83 children, find permanent housing, said Tim Center, CEO of the Community Action Agency.Were excited that this could be a potential model for other community action programs in the state and country,Ž Center said. And were also excited about being able to help the displaced families rebuild after the disaster.ŽCounty commissioners sounded a hopeful note at the Monday special meeting, pleased at the comparative swiftness the deal had been completed with the help of both U.S. senators, the governor and the staff at the Florida Division of Emergency Management.But they werent without their anger, led by Commissioner Noah Lockley, who argued that Wildlands Service Inc., the Tallahas-see company that handled a controlled burn that ulti-mately got out of control and triggered the whirl-wind blaze, should be doing more.Commissioner Cheryl Sanders said the controlled burn had been done on land owned and administered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Chairman Smokey Par-rish said once investigators from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services deter-mined that the cause had been from the controlled burn, supposed to have been completely extinguished six days prior, Wildlands Service Inc. lawyered up,Ž and it could be as long as four years before any settlement dol-lars flow into the affected property owners.Were never going to make them whole again,Ž Sanders said.We got a lawyer,Ž Lockley said. Let him send them something, and lets we lawyer up. Let them know we aint playing.ŽCommissioners stressed that Capital Area would be in charge of determin-ing who would receive the FEMA trailers, with prop-erty owners topping the list. Lockley stressed that he felt renters, and even those without a docu-mented claim to residency, should be giving priority as well.They didnt ask for this,Ž he said. If they were on the books or not, they were there.ŽCommissioner Ricky Jones, who has served as point man on the ground for the county while the other commissioners were away at a Florida Association of Counties meeting, told Commissioner William Massey he estimated the county also had lost as much as $20,000 in asphalt road work because of the fire.Jones, who as a child experienced a fire that burned his family out of their home, served as a quiet, reassuring presence in the days immediately after the fire, even though the affected areas are just outside his district. He told his colleagues he was grate-ful to see their unified effort at this stage. This was no tabletop exercise,Ž he said.While there was not an extensive discussion about the legal ramifications of the fire, County Attorney Michael Shuler advised commissioners they would not have legal standing in matters that involve pri-vate property owners.They (Wildland Services) are not going to voluntarily resolve these lawsuits,Ž Shuler said, whose family previously secured a judgment of more than $700,000 for timber-lands they owned that were destroyed from a controlled burn by the state.Shuler said Capital Area will pay for all title costs associated with the trailer purchase, and he expected that to be completed within the next two to three weeks.He also noted that the county has the ability to buy other equipment, such as air conditioners, from the GSA at a discount.Massey noted that an enormous amount of house hold furnishings, from coffee pots and dishes to mattresses, have been accumulated thanks to the generosity of donors from throughout the region.We could equip 10 houses,Ž he said.Tress Dameron, emergency services coordinator, told commis-sioners that of the affected properties, 16 were residences owned by people who owned the land as well, w hile another 13 were places rented by families as their primary residence. Four were non-primary residences, she said, with another eight places not destroyed but in need of repair. The remaining damages were of an as-yet undetermined number of sheds, outbuildings, vehicles, boats, tools and other equipment.Land clearing by crews from four companies „ Jason White, Coastline, Roberts and Roberts, and the city of Tallahassee „ took place Monday and Tuesday, and things went well, according to Sheriff A.J.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 A3


** A4 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser OPINION ANOTHER VIEW With the temperature hovering around 90 degrees, there is no doubt that summer is still with us, yet we know that it is winding down. We begin to think of things that fall brings. Things like back to School time,Ž and football, but dominating most everything else is the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. That event brings more people into Bonifay than everything else combined. The numbers of people coming in to town for the two rodeo parades and the three performances should spur us to take an objective look at what our visitors will see. The downtown area leaves a lot to be desired. The bombed out old stores that I mentioned in a previous article are still presenting a scene reminiscent of a war-torn country. Now that the former Padgett Drug stores roof has finally caved in, that adds to that impression of our small town. As the fall season approaches, the Holmes County Chamber director Rebecca Prince is planning to promote a clean-up day for Bonifay. Well be hearing more about that soon. In the meantime, Id like to hear your thoughts on what needs doing and can be done with the old drug store and other eye-sores.I have thought of turning the drug store into some small apartments. Finish tearing the roof off and replace it with a well insulated roof. ( or leave it open to the sky.) With a green space dominating the center parklike area, make attractive small apartments on either side. Overhead electric daylighting and controlled climate would entice young professionals to occupy the space. Leaving the glass front and doors in place will provide natural light for the green space and give the old downtown an attractive new life.Of course the main thing we need is new business. Another good family style restaurant downtown would do well, I believe. Plenty of spaces are available. The aforementioned two buildings at the corner of Waukesha St and Virginia Ave could be torn down turned into a parking lot for courthouse and county commission meetings. An ice cream parlor would be a nice establishment downtown. How about a sandwich shop similar to Subway? I have never been there when there wasnt a line. Couldnt we support a game arcade? The beach is not going anywhere and much of our business comes from traffic associated with beach goers. What would they stop in Bonifay to buy? For years we had a nice dress shop. How about another flower shop? Bonifay previously had 2 or 3.Perhaps the Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a contest to see who can come up with the best plan for the revitalization of downtown. Now that the highway 79 4-lane is stopping short of Bonifay we need to put our heads together and come up with a plan. There is probably money available to assist in such a project.Some other things I talked with the Holmes County Chamber director Rebecca Prince with about include the very real possibility of getting a Boys and Girls Club of America here in Bonifay. There is grant money available for highway beautification and hopefully that will come our way. An organization has to be in place that will be responsible for administering those funds. Bonifay Garden Club?Some things to keep in mind include:The City of Bonifay is considering an ordinance that will require owners of properties that constitute an eyesore or a safety hazard, to rectify those problems within a certain amount of time. A clean up spruce up campaign will be coming to Bonifay in September with some outside help. Local effort is required. Organizations will be needed to assist in this. Bonifay Garden Club? School Clubs? Bonifay Woman's Club? Kiwanis Club?Are we willing to let our little town rot down or are we willing to roll up our sleeves and do our part to make Bonifay a better place to live. We have some of the best people in the world in this area. Many people who grew up here or others who lived her for a while and then had to move away call Bonifay home. Let's do our part to continue to make this the place that we are proud to call home.HAPPY CORNERPlanning for fall projectsHave something to say?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Congre ssional committees recently brought the executives of opioid manufacturers to Washington to explain their role in Americas opioid epidemic. Sadly, the executives largely shifted the blame elsewhere. At its peak in 2012, physicians wrote 282 million opioid prescriptions „ enough for 8 in 10 Americans, Politico reported. Fortunately, the latest statistics suggest that the prescription surge has dramatically slowed. But the surge drove home a somber reality in this country: opioids have been Americas national pill. The fact is that other developed nations have not experienced the spikes in opioid use, opioid abuse and opioid-related overdoses that we have in this country. Thats led hundreds of cities and localities to sue opioid manufacturers „ in part to obtain funding to treat opioid abuse victims. If officials and authorities would have followed the money, it should have been easy to spot the tidal wave of opioid use. In a statement reported by the Hill website, Rep. Gregg Harper, a Mississippi Republican, questioned why drug distributors repeatedly failed to report suspicious orders of opioids or exercise effective controlsŽ as more and more pills flooded America. The answer seems pretty clear: because tremendous profits were being made by keeping quiet „ and keeping the pills flowing. The opioid epidemic was also fueled by a dangerous misperception that opioids carried low risks of addiction. To combat this, a trade association for the opioid manufacturers said they support policies that fully reveal the effects of opioids and decrease the likelihood of them being overprescribed. Its critical that our elected leaders dont overreact to what we now know about the need to control opioid use; they cant go to the other extreme of making opioids nearly impossible to obtain. Politico identified some of the potential unintended consequences of overreacting to the opioid crisis, it will increase the difficulty of obtaining relief for patients with valid pain issues „ and individuals nearing the end of life and distract us from focusing on the need for more non-drug therapies. These are all good points. But the bottom line hasnt changed: The reason why so many officials are now scrambling to act „ and at the risk of doing so in overzealous fashion „ is because too few of them took any action as the opioid crisis gathered momentum. Why werent questions asked? Why wasnt oversight done? Why werent whistleblowers taken seriously instead of being turned away, as reports suggest? When there is an explosion in the use of a particular drug, a governmental agency should know about it right away „ and it should report what it knows to Congress right away. The overdose epidemic is a widespread failure, and government must surely take its share of the blame for it. (A version of this editorial originally appeared in the (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union, a sister paper of Gatehouse Media.)No oversight as opioid epidemic grew Maybe a new Utah law will revive the lost art of parents calling their children home for dinner. Utah recently passed the nation's first "free-range parenting" law to protect parents from prosecution for allowing their children to play in nearby parks, walk to school, go to the store or rumble through a neighborhood creek without adult supervision. It's a shame that it now takes passing laws to allow kids to enjoy childhood activities without adult supervision, but we must. We must because, according to Parents Magazine, nearly 75 percent of parents fear their children are at risk of being abducted. Some 30 percent of parents fear child abduction more than they do car accidents, sports injuries or drug addiction involving their children. Parental fears have been stoked for decades by sensationalistic news stories on the internet and cable television, 24/7 fears that, regrettably, are woefully out of sync with reality. According to The New York Times, among America's roughly 40 million elementary school-age children, approximately 115 are abduc ted by strangers each year while 250,000 are in car wrecks. According to The Washington Post, "children taken by strangers or slight acquaintances represent only one-hundredth of 1 percent of all missing children." Such abductions are also on the decline. In any event, media-stoked fears have changed childhood forever, prompting "helicopter parents" to "hover" over their children every moment of every day placing undue burdens and stress on children and parents alike. Lenore Skenazy says the heck with that. Skenazy, an American blogger, columnist, author and reality-show host, wrote a newspaper column in 2008 that explained her decision to allow her then-9-yearold son to ride on the New York City subway alone. The column sparked a flood of outrage among stressed-out parents and won her the label of "America's Worst Mom." It also led to Skenazy penning the book "Free Range Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry."Summertime dinner calls long overdue Tom Purcell Hazel Tison


** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 A5 By News Service of FloridaThe first ballots of Florida's Aug. 28 primary election need to be in the mail by Saturday, according to deadlines announced Thursday by the state Division of Elections. The July 14 deadline applies to ballots being mailed over-seas to absent stateside voters as well as overseas uniformed service members and overseas civilians, Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced. The initial window for supervisors of elections to get ballots in the mail to other voters is from July 24 to July 31. The last day for voters to request a vote-by-mail ballot is Aug. 22, and the last day for supervisors to send out the mail-in ballots is Aug. 24. Voters can also pick up vote-by-mail ballots from their local supervisors office up to the day before the election. According to the Division of Elections, all 67 Florida coun-ties will offer early voting at select polling locations from Aug. 18 to Aug. 25. The dead-line to be registered to vote in the primary election is July 30.State sets deadlines for mail-in votesBy Dara KamNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE --Florida Department of Health officials took two major actions in the medical-marijuana sphere Friday, issuing a highly sought-after license to a Miami nursery that suc-cessfully challenged the state and laying out the process for four more licenses as the can-nabis industry continues to blossom.In a blistering opinion last month, Administrative Law Judge John Van Laningham recommended that health officials grant a medical mari-juana license to Natures Way Nursery of Miami, Inc. The June 19 recommended order scalded the state Office of Medical Marijuana Use for using a flawed system to decide which applicants were granted the coveted licenses.While Van Laninghams order was just a recommendation, health officials on Friday issued the license to Natures Way and reduced the number of available slots as hundreds of applicants are expected to compete to join a highly restricted market in one of the countrys most populous states.At the same time, health officials laid out the framework for a new process to handle what they expect to be up to 400 applications for four licenses that recently became available because the number of eligible patients in a statewide database has exceeded 100,000.John Lockwood, a lawyer who represents operators in the marijuana industry, hailed the department's moves Friday."It takes these four licenses that they have to issue by statute and removes them from the litigious issues. These are just four open, competitive licenses. So in my opinion this is a very, very smart move by the depart-ment to get these licenses to market as quickly as possible. This is the way it should be done," he said.But its unclear whether Fridays moves by the health department will appease critics --including legisla-tors, patient advocates and marijuana industry opera-tors --who have blasted the agency for delays in issuing new licenses.Floridas medical marijuana industry has been mired in controversy since its incep-tion in 2014, when lawmakers legalized non-euphoric can-nabis and authorized five licenses.The already intense competition for the licenses intensified after voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2016 that broadly legalized medical marijuana.A law passed last year, aimed at implementing the constitutional amendment, required health officials to issue 10 new licenses, including to applicants who had legal challenges pending as of January 2017 or who had scored within one point of the highest-ranked applicants in five regions.Health officials initially said Natures Way was ineli-gible for a license because its aggregate score of 2.8833 was not within one point of the 4.4 received by Costa Farms, which was granted a license for the Southeast region in 2015.But as he had previously done in an unrelated chal-lenge, Van Laningham found that health officials ranking of the applicants --the method used to determine which ones would get licenses --was not the same as scor-ing the applications.To repeat a point that cannot be stated enough, it is impossible to determine a quantifiable point differ-ence between the rankings of Best and, e.g., Fourth Best,Ž he wrote in the lengthy opin-ion that includ ed pages of mathematical analysis and charts.The health agencys licensure Friday of Natures Way means that 14 licenses have been issued. It also shrinks the number of available licenses, because six of the 10 licenses authorized under the 2017 law have already been doled out. One of the new licenses not yet issued must go to a black farmer who was part of class-action lawsuits, known as PigfordŽ cases, about discrimination by federal officials.The new law also required health officials to give preference for two licenses to applicants who own facili-ties that were used to process citrus, the subject of at least one lawsuit.Because of the litigation regarding the citrus preference, the department is holding off on accepting applications for the remain-ing two licenses, according to a news release issued Friday. But the state is moving for-ward with a process for four new licenses ordered under a different part of the law, which requires health officials to grant four licenses after at least 100,000 qualified, eligible patients have enrolled in a statewide database, a benchmark that was recently surpassed.The Florida Department of Health is committed to ensur-ing qualified patients have safe, reliable access to lowTHC cannabis and medical marijuana,Ž agency officials said in the release. In an effort to continue to expand availability of this treatment, the department will accept applications for registration as a medical marijuana treatment center through a new rule. This new rule addresses the Pigford class license and the four additional licenses avail-able upon reaching 100,000 patients, as outlined by the Florida Legislature in 2017.ŽThe Office of Medical Marijuana Use had originally planned to issue the four licenses spawned by the increase in the number of patients to applicants who were runners-up.Ž But the agency has yet to begin accepting applications for the new licenses.The Office of Medical Marijuana Use is asking the Legislature for more money as it prepares for an influx of applications in a state where one license tied to an operator that had not yet begun selling cannabis recently sold for $53 million.Less than two weeks after the states new fiscal year began July 1, the office is asking the Joint Legislative Budget Commission for nearly $13.3 million in additional money to cover its expenses this year.The request includes more than $7.3 million to handle what health officials, who have contracted with the firm KPMG to process and score the applications, estimate will be up to 400 applica-tions, with an estimated price tag of $18,354 each to review, according to documents posted on the commissions website.The health department, which is currently fending off at least 10 legal or admin-istrative challenges, is also estimating it will need an additional $1.5 million for cur-rent and future lawsuits, and $3.4 million for a seed-to-sale tracking system.State issues new pot license, gets ready for four more LOCAL & STATE By Staff ReportCARYVILLE A deputys attempt to stop a vehicle during the course of searching for a man with an outstanding warrant led to the pursuit of a second subject.The incident took place on July 9 after Holmes County Sheriffs Office responded to a request for a civil standby at the Caryville campsite, according to a news release from HCSO.The report stated that while performing the service, the deputy collected information from the parties and went to his vehicle to conduct a warrants check which confirmed one of the subjects, identified as Steven Pope, had an active felony warrant.When the deputy returned, Pope had fled the scene on foot, and additional units, as well as the Holmes and Walton CI K9 teams, responded to assist, is the pursuit.Prior to the arrival of the additional units, a white Nissan Altima was seen leaving the area. When a deputy spotted the vehicle and attempted to conduct an investigative stop to see if the suspect was inside, the driver refused, initiating a pursuit.The suspect, later identified as Matthew Pate, turned south on County Road 179 and con-tinued toward Caryville where he turned onto Pate Pond Road. The pursuit then continued down River Road where the deputy lost sight of the vehicle in the Hinson Cross Roads area, according to HCSO.Washington County Sheriffs Office was notified, and a WCSO deputy located the vehicle on Creek Road, initiat-ing a pursuit that headed north on Pate Pond Road. The vehicle went off the road before coming to a stop, with Pate now fleeing on foot.Pate was later apprehended by WCSO and the Northwest Florida Reception Center K9 team. Meanwhile, Holmes CI began tracking Pope, a trail which lead the team up to Highway 179 and Bear Hewitt Landing, where the track was lost.Pope is wanted on a Bay County felony VOP warrant and now faces additional charges of fleeing and eluding in Holmes County. Anyone with knowledge of Popes where-abouts is asked to call HCSO at 850-547-3681 or their nearest law enforcement agency.One in custody and one at-large after pursuits

** A8 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser SPORTSChipola College baseball head coach Jeff Johnson has been named the NJCAA D1 American Baseball Coaches Association National Coach of the Year."It feels good to get it man," said Johnson. "As always when you get an award like that with the many great coaches as there are at our junior college level, it's spe-cial. It takes a lot of great players and a lot of great assistant coaches to help as well. I'm just proud to receive the honor."Johnson led his team to back-to-back JUCO World Series titles after ending the national tour-nament with six straight wins including two against No. 1 Walters State and one against 2017 runner-up San Jacinto. It was Johnson's third JUCO title (2007, 2017, 2018). Chipola finished the season at 49-17. Chipola won its second straight title with a 10-7 win over Walters State (TN) in the title game of the National Tournament on June 2. After dropping the opening game of the World Series to Walters, the Indians avoided elimi-nation in six consecutive games to win the title, becoming just the fourth program in tournament history to achieve the feat.Chipola also was the first program to win back-to-back NJCAA World Series champion-ships since Grayson (TX) in 1999-2000.Chipola Sophomore Morgan McCullough won three individual awards at the tournament … Outstanding Defensive Player, Outstanding Hitter and Most Valuable Player. Philip Sanderson won the Outstanding Pitcher award. He allowed only one earned run in 13.1 innings. Five Chipola players were named to the All-Tournament Team: Edmond Americaan, Trevor Holloway, Morgan McCullough, Francisco Urbaez and Alex Webb. Coach Jeff Johnson was awarded the Bus Bergman Coach of the Year Award for the second consecu-tive season.Chipolas Johnson is NJCAA Baseball Coach of The Year[SPECIAL TO THE TIMES] By Rob HarrisThe Associated PressMOSCOW „ Savor the thrills, unpredictability, and constant drama of this World Cup. Even FIFA accepts the soccer showpiece might never be so engro ssing again.Russia might have staged the last 32-team World Cup. Or at least the last one not shoehorned in a crammed format at the end of the calendar year.FIFA has yet to defini-tively rule out adding another 16 teams in time for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but the leap to 48 teams will be happening for certain for the triple-hosted North American tournament in 2026. Welcome to 16 groups, each featuring three teams of which two advance to a round of 32. Soccer leaders were seduced by the extra cash an expansion tournament would offer, but at the expense of the spectacle itself. Russia vindicated the 2016 internal FIFA briefing document that determined 32-team finals tend to produce the highest absolute qual-ityŽ on the field. Here is a look at the winners and losers of the tournament which ended with France lifting the World Cup on Sunday after beating Croatia 4-2 in the final: RussiaThe lowest-ranked team at the finals, the hosts set the tone for the tournament by thrashing Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the opener. It wasnt a fluke as Stanislav Cherchesovs side unexpectedly qualified from its group and even eliminated 2010 World Cup winner Spain in the round of 16. It was only a successful penalty shootout away from reaching the semifinals. As a tournament organizer, Russia also exceeded expectations. No one doubted Vladimir Putins ability to mobilize the resources of the state to ensure operations ran smoothly. But police often adopted a relaxed approach to fans gathering on street corners and drinking in the streets. The hooliganism and racism that has scarred Russian football was absent.Logistically, it was a triumph, but it will take longer to discover whether the changes in Russia were just camou-flage for the tournament. Heavyweights ooredEven as they celebrate their second World Cup title, the French should have a sense of dread. Germany became the third holder from the last three World Cups to be eliminated in the group stage. Germanys demise was a combination of com-placency, failing to strike the right balance blending the young and older generation, and a simmering row over the Turkish heri-tage of Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan.This was a tournament to forget for the top three players at last years FIFA awards. Player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo excelled in only one match, scoring a hat trick against Spain, before European cham-pion Portugal was knocked out by Uruguay in the last 16. Lionel Messi managed a solitary strike to help Argentina qualify from its group. And like Portugal it fell at the start of the second round, losing to France 4-3. The worlds most expensive player at least made it a round further. But Neymar was still struggling for fitness after three months out with a broken toe.The pitfalls of making a hasty return from injury were clear for Mohamed Salah, whose shoulder injury in the Champions League final in May meant the Egypt forward was unable to replicate his free-scoring form. English footballs player of the year netted only twice as Egypt was eliminated in the group stage. Video replaysExpecting perfection was always unrealistic on the debut of video assistant referees. Confusion reigned in the opening days of the tournament. When grappling went unpunished and penalties were not awarded had the referee even con-sulted the VAR or was he just being lenient? Too many referees dithered over decisions. Take the awarding of the penalty in the final after assessing Croatia midfielder Ivan Perisics handball. Ultimately, if the decision is right in the end, soccer might have to put up with delays. Airing some of the communications between referees and the VARs like they do in rugby will give coaches and fans more confidence in the system going forward. Particularly when it comes to what constitutes clear and obviousŽ errors. Set-piecesThe demise of Spain in the last 16 underscored a shift in tactical effective-ness. Goodbye tiki-taka for now. Possession without using the ball effectively „ attacking „ is futile as Spain discovered against Russia. Instead, winning a free kick or corner proved the most effective route to scoring. Of 169 goals in Russia, 73 came from set-pieces. VAR helped, too, acting as a deterrent against wrestling and shirt-pulling to neutral-ize opponents as the balls were flying into the pen-alty area. ConcussionFIFA strengthened concussion protocols after the 2014 World Cup regarding when players return to action after head impacts. But there are protocols in place, not hard and fast rules. So Noureddine Amrabat should never have played in the group stage in Russia for Morocco five days after a concussion that left him unable to remember the incident. But Amrabat was allowed to defy the team doctors advice.Can we do more? Of course,Ž FIFA President Gianni Infantino said on Friday, without expanding.Winners and losers of the 2018 World CupRussias Artyom Dzyuba, front, and Spains Sergio Busquets challenge for the ball during the July 1 round of 16 match between Spain and Russia at the 2018 World Cup at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia. [ANTONIO CALANNI/ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE] By Jovana GecThe Associated PressZAGREB, Croatia „ In an outburst of national pride and joy, Croatia rolled out a red carpet and staged a euphoric heroes welcome for the national team on Monday despite its loss to France in the World Cup final.Hundreds of thousands of people wearing national red-and-white checkered colors and waving Croatian flags poured into the streets in the capital Zagreb to greet the team. Observers described the homecoming event as the biggest ever in Croatia.The joyful, singing crowd crammed the central squares and the route where the players passed in an open bus, greeting fans and signing autographs. Police said more than 250,000 people came out in central Zagreb and many more along the route. The players bus traveled for hours, often stopping when it was blocked by the crowds. Thank you Croatia, thank you Zagreb!Ž captain Luka Modric, who won the Golden Ball after being voted the best player of the World Cup, told the crowd after the team finally arrived at the central square in the evening.The players lined up to sing the national anthem with the packed square thundering in joy. Rightwing nationalist singer Marko Perkovic Thompson joined in toward the end, singing a couple of songs. Thousands of fans, many coming from other parts of the country, began arriv-ing in the center in the early morning and emergency medical services said they aided hundreds of fans who collapsed from exhaustion. City authorities brought in water tanks to the city center.Fans honking car horns, waving and shouting Bravo! Bravo!Ž welcomed the bus as it slowly left the airport. The inscription at the front read: Fiery heart, the pride of Croatia!Ž in reference to the name The FieryŽ as the team is dubbed at home.More than 250,000 welcome Croatia home

MILLER/TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH VIA AP] By Elliot Spagat and Colleen LongThe Associated PressSAN DIEGO „ A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to deportations of immigrant families reunited after being separated at the border, as the Trump administration races to meet a July 26 deadline for putting thousands of children back in their parents arms.U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification.ŽJustice Department attor-ney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court.The ACLU requested that parents have at least one week to decide whether to pursue asylum in the U.S. after they are reunited with their children. The judge held off on deciding that issue until the government outlines its objections in writing by next Monday.ACLU attorney Lee Gel-ernt told reporters that he was extremely pleasedŽ by the halt and that parents need time to think over with their children and advisers whether to seek asylum.Its hard to imagine a more profound or momentous deci-sion,Ž he said.The hearing in San Diego occurred as the government accelerated reunifications at eight unidentified U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement locations. The families are scattered around the country, the adults at immi-gration detention centers, the children at shelters overseen by the government.Annunciation House, a shelter in El Paso, said the government has begun transporting children in a tremendous amount of airline flightsŽ to El Paso and elsewhere. Director Ruben Garcia said he is preparing to take in as many as 100 reuni-fied families a day.Late last month, Sabraw ordered the government to reunite the thousands of children and parents who were forcibly separated at the border by the Trump administration this spring. He set a deadline of July 10 for children under 5 and gave the government until July 26 to reunite more than 2,500 youngsters ages 5 to 17.On Monday, the judge com-mended the government for a plan submitted over the weekend to reunify the older children. The plan calls for DNA testing and other screen-ing measures only if red flags are raised during background checks. Jonathan White of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, who is overseeing the governments effort, assured the judge that some reunifications of older children already occurred, and it is our intent to reunify chil-dren promptly.Ž He went into detail on how the process was working.The judge praised Whites testimony, saying, What is in place is a great start to making a large number of reunifications happen very, very quickly.ŽJustice Department attorneys also assured Sabraw the children were well cared for, offering him a visit to a shelter if he wanted. The judge replied that the main concern wasnt whether the children were well cared for.Obviously the concern that has been at issue has been the passage of time,Ž he said. No matter how nice the environ-ment is, its the act of separation from a parent, particularly with young children, that matters.ŽSabraw has scheduled three more hearings over the next two weeks to ensure compliance with his order. Also Monday, advocates said in federal court in Los Angeles that immigrant children in gov-ernment custody are being given poor food, kept in unsanitary conditions and face insults and threats.The allegations came amid a long-running effort by attor-neys to have a court-appointed monitor oversee the U.S. governments compliance with a decades-old settlement govern-ing the treatment of immigrant children caught on the border.Attorneys interviewed immi-grant parents and children in June and July about their experi-ences in Border Patrol facilities, family detention and a youth shelter. They described much of the testimony as shocking and atrocious.ŽFamilies described meals of frozen sandwiches and spoiled food, overflowing toilets and guards yelling at them and kicking them while they slept. Children said they were hungry and scared when their parents were taken away.Judge halts deportation of reuni ed familiesRuling temporary; comes as government scrambles to reunite kids by July 26 deadlineAllison, 6, and her mother Cindy Madrid share a moment during a news conference Friday in Houston, where the mother and daughter spoke about the month and one day they were separated under the President Donald Trump administration immigration policy.

KENS CALL: Clint Bowyer is an easy call, and Kyle Larson seems possible whenever he remembers how to win, but Ill go out on a small limb and say Erik Jones.Two more years on the contract for Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus. How impressive is that? GODSPEAK: I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship,Ž said Humphrey Bogart at the end of Casablanca.Ž KENS CALL: In NASCARs long, colorful history, some driver-chief relationships barely lasted through the “ rst green-” ag pit stop, so pushing two decades might be their biggest accomplishment. WINNER: Denny Hamlin REST OF TOP 5: Kyle Larson, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski FIRST ONE OUT: Martin Truex Jr. DARK HORSE: Jimmie Johnson DONT BE SURPRISED IF: Hamlin, who has three wins in Loudon, pushes the panic button and responds with a victory for Coach Joe Gibbs. KYLE BUSCH VS. RICKY STENHOUSE JR.: This isnt from Kentucky, but Daytona, where Stenhouse triggered a big crash. There is so much tension in this relationship, it wont take much for either to snap. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: Busch was looking for an apology call from Stenhouse. That never happened. The two had a verbal exchange at Kentucky. Pick and choose your battles wisely,Ž Stenhouse said.Can the Chad Knaus-Jimmie Johnson combination really last through 2020?With Chads new contract announced last week, both the crew chief and driver of the No. 48 are inked for two more years after 2018. Theyve never had to endure anything like this current winless streak, and as far as anyone knows, theres no tension, only frustration. Its quite amazing, really, given the nature of auto-racing relationships. Hes a very tolerant individual,Ž Knaus says of Johnson. That would make him the rarest of racers. Hows Ricky Stenhouse Jr.s tolerance?Its apparently at low tide with Kyle Busch, who verbally dumped on Ricky after the big mess at Daytona two weekends ago. Ricky let Kyle know about it at Kentucky this past weekend, and suggested he should save his more personal critiques for face-to-face meetings.

Well, even the Yankees have down years, and Hendrick is in a slump. If Rick Hendricks team doesnt win at New Hampshire, then Hendrick Motorsports will have cycled through 12 months with no wins. Its last win was July 23, 2017. Yikes!2. More HendrickWith seven more regular-season races before the playoffs, two Hendrick Motorsports drivers are precariously close to the cut line. Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman are 15th and 16th in the playoff rankings. The top 16 drivers go into the playoffs.

** B2 Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Paul WisemanThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The Trump administration on Monday brought cases against China, the Euro-pean Union, Canada, Mexico and Turkey at the World Trade Organization for retaliating against American tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.The United States has imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum on the grounds that the imported metals pose a threat to U.S. national security. China, the EU, Canada, Mexico and Turkey have counterpunched with taxes on more than $24 billion worth of U.S. exports.U.S. Trade Rep. Robert Lighthizer said their retaliation violates the rules of the Geneva-based WTO, which mediates trade disputes.Instead of working with us to address a common problem, some of our trad-ing partners have elected to respond with retaliatory tariffs designed to punish American workers, farmers and companies,Ž Lighthizer said. If the WTO agrees that the retaliatory duties violate its rules, it would assess the damage and calculate the tariffs that the United States would be entitled to impose in response „ retaliation for the retaliation. But WTO proceedings can drag on for years.In taxing imported steel and aluminum from some countries in March and others in June, President Donald Trump deployed a little-used weapon in American trade policy: Under the Trade Expan-sion Act of 1962, presidents are empowered to impose unlimited tariffs on imports that the Commerce Department asserts are threats to Americas national security.The WTO gives countries broad leeway to determine national secu-rity interests. But there was long an unwritten agreement that WTO member countries would use the national-security justification only very sparingly to avoid abuses.Trumps steel and alu-minum tariffs broke that taboo. Now the Commerce Department is pursuing another, bigger national-security case against auto imports. Hearings on the pro-posed auto tariffs are set for Thursday and Friday in Washington.Separately, Trump is engaged in a trade war with China over the aggressive tactics Beijing has used to challenge U.S. technological dominance. According to the Trump administration, these include outright cybertheft and forcing U.S. companies to hand over trade secrets in exchange for access to the Chinese market.Last week, the administration announced 10 percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, which wont take effect until at least Sep-tember. On Monday, China said that it filed a WTO challenge against those proposed U.S. tariffs. US challenges China, EU and others at WTO over steel tari sTrade troublesBy Anne DInnocenzioThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Amazons website ran into some early snags Monday on its much-hyped Prime Day, an embarrassment for the tech company on the shopping holiday it created.Shoppers clicking on many Prime Day links after the 3 p.m. ET launch in the U.S. got only images of dogs „ some quite abashed-looking „ with the words, Uh-oh. Something went wrong on our end.Ž People took to social media to complain that they couldnt order items.By about 4:30 p.m., many Prime Day links were working, and Amazon said later Monday that it was work-ing to resolve the glitches.In an email to The Associated Press, it said many are shopping suc-cessfullyŽ and that in the first hour of Prime Day in the U.S., customers ordered more items than in the same time frame last year. Still, the hiccups could mute sales and send shoppers elsewhere during one of Amazons busiest sales periods thats also a key time for it to sign up new Prime members. Shoppers have lots of options, as many other chains have offered sales and promotions to try to capitalize on the Prime Day spending.Analyst Sucharita Mul-puru-Kodali at Forrester Research called the glitch a huge deal.ŽThis is supposed to be one of their biggest days of the year,Ž she wrote in an email. I am shocked this caught them off guard. But I guess the lesson is to not have a big unveil during the middle of the day when every-one comes to your site all at once.ŽAmazon, which recently announced that Prime membership would be getting more expensive, was hoping to lure in shoppers by focusing on new products and having Whole Foods be part of the process. It was also hoping parents would use the deals event to jump start back-to-school shopping.Jason Goldberg, senior vice president of commerce at Publicis. Sapient, noted that the problems could turn off shoppers for a while, particularly those who planned to sign up for Prime membership.If you were planning to find Prime deals to lower the cost of backto-school (purchases), youre almost certainly going back to your tradi-tional venue of choice,Ž he said.Prime Day runs into early snags BUSINESS In this July 13 photo, Chinese-made children shoes carrying a Chinese map and U.S. ” ags are on display for a sale at a shop in Beijing. [ANDY WONG/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Major U.S. indexes closed mostly lower Monday as investors bought banks but sold most other types of stocks, including health care and technology compa-nies. Energy stocks sank along with oil prices.Oil prices fell more than 4 percent after U.S. officials suggested the U.S. will take a softer stance on countries that import oil from Iran after sanctions on Irans energy sector go back into effect in November. Banks rose along with interest rates as well as a solid second-quarter report from Bank of America. A strong forecast gave Deutsche Bank its biggest gain in more than a year.Amazon jumped in midday trading as investors expected strong sales during the companys annual Prime Day promotion, one of its largest sales days of the year, but the stock gave up much of that gain following problems with the com-panys website. Most other groups of stocks lost ground, and about two-thirds of the com-panies on the New York Stock Exchange finished lower.Stocks finished at five-month highs Friday as investors remained optimistic about the U.S. economy even as they worried about the trade war between the U.S. and China.Were coming off of a very strong week last week where the market finally started to focus on the expectation of a very strong earnings season,Ž said Sunitha Thomas, a portfolio advisor for Northern Trust Wealth Management. She said companies are likely to report big increases in profit and revenue, and while investors are looking for hints the trade war is affecting company forecasts and supply chains, there were no signs of that on Monday.The S&P 500 index lost 2.88 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,798.43. The Dow Jones Indus-trial Average rose 44.95 points, or 0.2 percent, to 25,064.36 as Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and Boeing climbed.

But the lending agency is downgrading the outlook for Europe and Japan.The IMF now predicts that the economy of the 19-country eurozone will grow 2.2 percent in 2018, down from the 2.4 percent it forecast in April. The fund expects the Japanese economy to expand 1 percent this year, down-grading its 1.2 percent April forecast.
