** A2 Wednesday, August 1, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserIf you know Danny Powell, you know his character and what moti-vates him as a business owner, county commissioner and family man. But for those of you that do not know him person-ally, I am asking that you take a moment to get to know who he is and what he stands for.Danny Powell is a Christian man who puts the Lord first in all things, serving on his church board for many years. He has been a successful business owner in Holmes County for over 20 years and supports his community and church in any way possible.While serving as County Commissioner over the last four years, he and the board of county commis-sioners have been part of many changes that will benefit the county now and in the future.Holmes County is currently making great strides for progress because of him and his co-commissioners desire to continue to better our community. While serving as the Chairman of the Board, he has been faced with making some difficult decisions but he has always based those decisions on what is best for the county overall, yet still attempting to keep the individual citizens best interest in mind.His vision is for growth in our county, while striv-ing to keep the "home town" feel that it now possesses.As a grandfather of eight, his wish is to see his own family (as well as others) stay and grow right here in Holmes County, rather than being forced to seek employment and homes elsewhere. His knowledge/education of current county issues and projects, experience as a long time business owner, motivation to uphold poli-cies, procedures and laws are why Danny Powell is the best choice for Holmes County Commissioner District 4.If you have any questions or concerns, please call him at 850-768-6499.Powell announces bid for county commissionHolmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris urged everyone in attendance to get out and vote and make their voices heard.[DIANE M.

If anyone would like to talk to me, please reach out and I will answer any questions you have."School Board District 5 seat has three candidates in the running.Leesa Manning Lee spoke to those in attendance about being a teacher and wanting to help all the students in the county."As a teacher, I help students in my classroom," said Lee.

I want to give all the resources I can to help them succeed."Vernon Lewis Junior said he believes children should be afforded opportunities."I believe my children and yours should be afforded the opportunity to reach their full potential," said Lewis. "We have to do more to encourage our children to reach their full potential. I believe that together we can make Holmes County Schools great again."The final candidate to speak was Freddie McIntosh.McIntosh spoke about working with the board to earn a higher grade for the district."I want to work with the other members to bring our district grade up," said McIntosh. "We are one point away from being a B district. Why not work to make us an A."Every candidate running for school board is also a product of the school district.

JOBSFrom Page A1 Jim Turner News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE With Floridas back-to-school sales tax holidayŽ starting Friday, some retailers may face an enthusiasm dip as laptops and other electron-ics are not on the discount menu.But as giant retailers such as Walmart and Target offer their own wide-ranging discounts, state economists and industry lobbyists dont foresee much difference from past years as parents and other shoppers are still expected to rush out for a weekend of savings on clothes, footwear and school supplies.Without technology, I think some of those retail-ers may not push it as hard. But we still expect it to be popular,Ž said James Miller of the Florida Retail Fed-eration. Its always one of the biggest things we hear about from our members and from the consumers.ŽThe three-day tax holiday, which will run from Friday through Sunday, will allow shoppers to avoid paying state and local sales taxes on most clothes and footwear costing $60 or less and school supplies that cost $15 or less. An estimate from state economists doesnt indicate the exclusion of computers from the tax holiday will alter the plans of families getting ready for the August start of the school year.The holiday this year is projected to save shoppers $32.7 million, reducing state revenue by $26 mil-lion and local-government revenue by $6.7 million.In 2017, when laptops were on the discount list, the overall savings stood at $33.4 million.Miller said retailers will push for electronics to be included in any back-toschool discount period considered during the 2019 legislative session.Lawmakers vote annually on the holiday, which has almost come to be an anticipated shopping period.Tax holiday teed up for back-to-school shoppers

** A4 Wednesday, August 1, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser OPINION Take one letter out of niece and you get the word nice. I am blessed with a lot of nice nieces. Early in our married life we lived next door to my husbands sister the late Ruth Helms, her husband Judge and their family. There I came to love all her children including their 4 daughters who became my nieces. My parents were proud to claim 21 grandchildren, twelve of whom are granddaughters. So I have 11 Wells nieces. I have 5 other Tison nieces whom I love but seldom get to see any of them. Add to that the wives of my and my husbands nephews and I am very blessed with nieces. In addition, We have six granddaughters. As I age I still try to maintain an active life so who do I call on when I need a chauffeur or some other assistance? Three of the granddaughters live in Panama City and sometimes are available and they get the call, but happily I have nieces available too. (Great-nieces fit the title, too) The past two weeks I have had a lot of experiences with nice nieces. Coming for my sister-inlaw Hesters funeral were all my Wells nieces. In addition, Courtney, my nephew Emorys daughter had previously expressed a desire for me to teach her how to make Mayhaw jelly. So we set a date and did that on Wednesday following her grandmothers funeral. It was fun to get to spend time with this University of Georgia Graduate and now she has not only a video of how to make mayhaw jelly, but a case of the sweet stuff to carry back to Atlanta. Prior to the funeral I had a stack of political signs to distribute for two statewide candidates that family members had brought from headquarters in Polk County Being very limited in my physical ability to climb ditch banks and such, niece Debbie (Tims wife) suggested that their daughter niece Julie would help me. So a phone call confirmed that she would and this Troy University graduate and I distributed the signs and she stuck them in the ground. With such good help, I wished for more to place in Holmes County. Another political activity called for the enlistment of another niece. A fundraiser at the beautiful home of SisterŽ Blackman and her husband in Washington County brought up another need for a chauffeur since this 87 year old doesnt need to be out alone at night. Nice niece Laura was tapped for this job and willingly agreed. Laura is a graduate of Florida State University with an events planning certification and is a freelance planner for national venues for country music entertainers. So this event was right up her alley. Since her work is mostly on weekends, Laura has chosen to be a substitute teacher and has taken on the task of promoting and assisting the robotics team at Poplar Springs High School. In fact, she was helping to host an open house at the school the next day for the team to display their trophies and their skills as roboticists, Did I just make up a word? So more interaction with my great-nieces as i attended the open house. My life is certainly enriched by having such a large family and especially so to have them nearby when I need a little extra help with my community involvements or other things. I am grateful for and to my nieces, my nieces-in-law and my great nieces. Every opportunity to spend time with you extends the length my life, I am convinced. I urge my readers to cultivate family friendships too, but not to the exclusion of others.Happy Corner: Nieces are niceThe Times-Advertiser is published on Wednesdays by GateHouse Media LLC at 112 E.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett A federal judges injunction temporarily lifting Floridas misguided ban on early voting on college campuses is welcome. The ruling by Chief Judge Mark E. Walker, of Floridas northern district, dismantles discriminatory and legally indefensible efforts by the state to prohibit county elections supervisors from conducting early voting at public colleges and universities. The decision underscores how far Florida Secretary of State Kenneth Detzner, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott, went to deter students from exercising their constitutional rights to vote without undue burdens. The order is also a reminder of the Republican-led Legislatures inexcusable refusal to pass a law overruling Detzners opinion „ despite its overreach. The immediate, practical effect of the order, which granted the plaintiffs motion for a preliminary injunction, requires Detzner, who oversees the Division of Elections, to issue a directive rescinding a January 2014 opinion that local election supervisors were expected to follow. Detzner issued the opinion in response to questions from the Gainesville City Commission, which had been asked to help arrange an early voting site on the University of Florida campus. His opinion referred to a 2013 law passed by the Legislature after complaints about long lines and excessive waiting periods to vote in 2012. The Early Voting Statute permitted county elections supervisors to designate „ in addition to their main or branch offices „ any City Hall, permanent public library facility, fairground, civic center, courthouse, county commission building, stadium, convention center, government-owned senior center or government-owned community center as early voting sites.Ž A plain reading of the statute strongly suggests a student union on the campus of a public university would qualify as a government-owned community center. But Detzner didnt reach that reasonable conclusion. Whats more, he ignored that the university campus has multiple stadiums and determined that the law excluded not only the union but any other collegeor university-related facilitiesŽ as early voting sites. As Judge Walker wrote, the statute contains no such exclusions. None. In the order, the judge emphasized several key points: the size and density of the UF campus warrant an early voting site, based on criteria used to assess whether all voters access to polling places is adequate and constitutional; college students engage in early voting at higher rates than the general population; mail-in ballots used by students are rejected at higher rates than those submitted by voters in other age groups. Walker found that Detzners prohibition disparately imposes significant burdens on plaintiffs rights weighted against insufficiently weighty government interests.Ž The injunction enables elections supervisors to consider campuses for early voting. It remains in effect until the case ultimately isdecided. Whatever the case, in its next session the Legislature should make clear in the law that campuses are appropriate venues for early voting. A version of this editorial first appeared in the Gainesville Sun, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Early voting sites belong on campusANOTHER VIEW If a liberal like Jesse Jackson went on CNN and accused my father of being a known womanizerŽ like President Trump, conservatives across America would go off the rails. Theyd defend the reputation of Ronald Reagan to the max and blast Jackson for his false and evil equivalency. Theyd point out that it is totally outrageous to compare the personal lives of President Trump and my father. Yet look what happened last week when a prominent conservative evangelical pastor from Dallas went on Fox News and called my father a known womanizer.Ž The Rev. Robert Jeffress, whos a Fox contributor, was asked by Ed Henry to respond to another minister who had accused Republican lawmakers of selling their good Christian souls by supporting a serial bed-hopper like Trump. You know,Ž Jeffress responded, this is not an unusual thing „ weve been here before. Back in 1980, evangelicals chose to support a twice-married Hollywood actor who was a known womanizer in Hollywood. His name was Ronald Reagan. ... The reason we supported President Reagan was not because we were supporting womanizing or divorce. We supported his policies.Ž When I heard Jeffress say that I blew my top and started angrily tweeting. The first tweet I fired off to the Southern Baptist minister was pretty blunt „ All I can say is go F yourself.Ž My second tweet was Dr. Jeffress. How dare you compare my father to Trump.Ž Apparently, I was the only conservative Reagan Republican in North America who actually cared that Pastor Jeffress was casually throwing my father under the bus to support his beloved sinner-in-chief. All I heard from my fellow conservatives in the twittersphere was crickets -and a week later I still do. What that holy man from Dallas said was absolutely outrageous. He equated my father „ who was divorced from my mother Jane Wyman when he was dating in Hollywood and not yet married to Nancy „ to Donald Trump, who was dating Playboy playmates and who knows who else when he was married. What was more outrageous, however, was that no conservative Republicans or Fox commentators rose up in defense of my father and his reputation. As I also pointed out in a tweet last week, all those conservative talk show hosts and politicians who keep saying how much they love Ronald Reagan are either lying or have lost their spines and a pair of other things. I dont believe those so-called Reagan conservativesŽ anymore. If they wouldnt stand up and defend my father against a vile and uninformed statement from someone like Jeffress, theres no reason to assume they love my father at all. I dont care what the president of the United States does in his personal life. I care what he does as president of the United States. If you want to defend Trump, fine. But for Gods sake, why would you use my father to make excuses for a president who has cheated on every woman hes been married to? To rephrase that famous old line, Rev. Jeffress, I knew Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a friend of mine. And Donald Trump aint no Ronald Reagan „ and vice versa.ŽA man of God sins against my father Michael Reagan Hazel Tison


** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, August 1, 2018 A5By Eryn Dion 747-5069 | @PCNHErynDionedion@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY BEACH „ The Road to Change Tour, part of the March for Our Lives movement that sprung out of the Feb. 14 Parkland school shooting, made a stop in Panama City Beach Sunday, holding a panel at Arnold High School, a voter registration event at Pier Park, and a more inti-mate forum at Moseys Downtown in Panama City.Survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting, along with alumni from the school and politically active students from other districts shared their experiences and the hope that their actions will motivate others in their age group to register to vote and exercise their political power. Many stated they hadnt been politically active or politically minded before the shooting, but were called to action, both as a way to cope with the loss and to also enact the kind of change that would pre-vent future shootings.We want to make sure this doesnt happen to other families, they dont lose loved ones in an issue that is com-pletely preventable,Ž said Robert Schentrup, who graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas in 2017 and whose 16-year-old sister was one of the 17 killed in the Feb. 14 shooting.While focusing largely on youth activism, the panel, hosted by the League of Women Voters, did get into gun control, with the students dispel-ling the belief that theyre anti-Second Amendment and how, with an issue as emotionally charged as gun violence and gun con-trol, the biggest enemy in that conversation is narrow mindedness.Ž The groups position, framed as gun violence prevention, centers around three points „ mandatory reporting for gun thefts, preventing those convicted of domestic violence from owning a gun and univer-sal background checks for those purchasing guns.If youre amicable of what were talking about, you go through the policy points, they tend to agree with you, because every single person, no matter their party affiliation, they want to be safe,Ž said Kayla Dixon, a stu-dent from Pinellas County who is traveling with the Road to Change tour. They want to protect their families and have a good well-being and our push is to do it responsibly and put buffers in order to make that happen.ŽFor many Bay County residents, like John Parker and Darian Furtaw, the Second Amendment, and any perceived threats against it, is deeply personal. Before the town hall, Parker sat in his pickup truck in the Arnold High School parking lot, a flag with a large AR-15 and the words Come and take itŽ flying in the wind, fixed to the bed of his truck. Before heading into the event, Parker rolled up the flag and put it in his truck, but not before changing into an army green shirt with the same AR-15 and same motto, and grabbing his GoPro to record the event. Left behind in his truck was a sign, Crimi-nals for gun-free zones.ŽI wanted to come here and tell them they should advocate for the end of gun-free zones,Ž Parker said. Where theyre having this, its a gun-free zone. The next event is in a bar, another gun-free zone. Nobody is going to protect you in those zones.ŽFurtaw said they were going into the event with an open mind, and also hoping for the opportunity to educate people on responsible gun ownership. Concealed carry, he argued, helps make sure the elderly and the disabled, who otherwise wouldnt be able to defend themselves, were taken care of. He was, he said, adamantly against any form of gun control, saying irresponsible gun ownership is a myth.ŽThere should be no control of a firearm,Ž he said. Im tired of going on the defensive about the Second Amendment. I kind of want to go on the offensive.ŽDespite party affiliations or where they land on the political spectrum, the students spent much of the panel encouraging respectful conversations between students and other students, adults and students and sides that dont agree. They also pushed people, par-ticularly those under the age of 25, to be more polit-ically active, to hold their legislators accountable and to go out into their community and organize. After the panel, the Park-land students met with Arnold students in a small group setting, talking to them about how they feel about school safety and sharing methods and strategies to organize.No matter what the issue, people care about other people,Ž said Mar-jory Stoneman Douglas sophomore Ryan Servites.The Road to Change Tour continues Monday in Pensacola at the Uni-versity of West Florida.

[PHOTOS BY JOSHUA BOUCHER/THE NEWS HERALD] By Brendan FarringtonThe Associated PressCHIPLEY „ Down a network of dirt roads that defies GPS navigation, Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam and about 100 supporters gathered at a hunting plantation tucked into the Panhan-dles pine trees.There were no television cameras, no throngs of media „ just barbecue and sweet tea for the crowd that clearly hadnt migrated from colder climes. Agriculture Commissioner Putnam introduced himself as a fifth generation Floridian, part of the personal outreach central to his campaign. We have a lot of native Floridians here, people who love our state, whose families who have bled and sweat and worked their fingers to the bone to carve out of this beautiful penin-sula „ the civilization that we call modern Florida,Ž Putnam said. It sets out a marker that says because of all that my family went through to make Florida Florida, Im committed to doing the right things for the right reasons.Ž That same day, primary opponent U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis appeared on Fox News from Israel, where he defended President Donald Trump amid an FBI investigation of Rus-sian meddling in the 2016 election.Were actively trying to get the underlying doc-uments that would tell us, did they (the FBI) spy on the Trump campaign or not?Ž DeSantis said.The free airtime is worth millions „ putting him in front of large numbers of conservative voters who will decide the Republican nominee to replace Gov. Rick Scott „ and, coupled with Trumps endorsement, forms the basis of his campaign.In a state with more than 4.5 million Republi-can voters, the candidates facing off in the Aug. 28 primary are a study in contrasting campaign styles. Putnam has been to more than 100 breakfasts, barbecues and parades, talking with Floridians about Florida issues. DeSantis has been on Fox News more than 100 times, usually talking about federal issues and defending the president. The race will test which strategy works best in these times when White House tweets make international headlines and political divides are as wide as they ever have been: Shaking a lot of hands or shaking things up on TV.Its an interesting test,Ž said Rick Wilson, a Tallahassee-based Republican strategist. Putnam has name ID, hes got experience, hes got money. Its sort of the like the Florida guy versus the Fox guy, and were going to see if thats suf-ficient anymore.ŽDuring the candidates first debate, which was broadcast on Fox News, Fox anchor Martha MacCallum asked DeSantis about the criticism that hes campaigning from a Washington TV studio.DeSantis replied that there have been plenty of times he couldnt be in Florida when he wanted to, like when he spent Christmas 2006 on a Navy assignment in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the follow-ing Christmas in Iraq.I would have loved to have been in Florida with my family, but sometimes duty calls and sometimes youve got to step up and do whats right,Ž DeSantis said.He said that duty now includes supporting Trumps agenda and uncovering the antiTrump bias at the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice.Thats what Im paid to do, so Im going to do my job,Ž he said.Even while campaigning in Florida, Fox and Trump are a theme. DeSantis did a statewide tour with Foxs Sean Hannity, held a rally with Donald Trump Jr. and plans to stand on stage with the president on Tuesday in Tampa.At Putnams event in Chipley, Nick Dillard acknowledged that many supporters there were surprised he would bother to come to a town of less than 4,000 people when there where places he could reach a larger audience and raise more money.I think it makes him more reachable,Ž Dillard said. They get it if he wants to go to Pensacola or Panama City, but to come to Chipley „ were a small town. ... Whys he coming here? I think it speaks to his philosophy „ the grass-roots movement.ŽUndecided Republican voter Ellen Petrokiewizz, who lives in the Orlando area, said she likes that Trump continues to rally supporters and back state candidates.Hes going back and saying, Hey, get behind your local politician. Sup-port this guy. Support that guy, Ž she said. DeSantis has already been in the Washington element, so he has been working back and forth there, so its a differ-ent style. I do like the true grass roots of going to the average person, and thats what Putnam has been doing. So, theres positives in both approaches.ŽGOP primary for governor down to Florida guy vs. Fox guy

Maybe we “ nd out in the pod. Maybe not. Tune in online at daytonamotormouths A runner-up for Daniel Suarez. Is he now on the watchlistŽ for victory? GODSPEAK: Yes, he is gaining momentum at a really, really good time. But I think Chase Elliott beats him to the checkered ” ag. KENS CALL: Obviously, theres only one place better, but I still think Aric Almirola wins under green before Suarez breaks the seal.Better career: Kyle Busch or Tony Stewart? GODSPEAK: Call it a tie. Busch is closing in on 200 overall national series wins, which is impressive. Another Cup title puts him over the top. KENS CALL: Good question. Theyre tied in Cup wins (49), and Kyle is light-years ahead in overall NASCAR wins, but Tony has those three Cup titles, compared with Kyles one. Until further notice, Tony. MATT DIBENEDETTO VS. ARIC ALMIROLA: The two drivers were “ ghting for position on the last lap when Almirolas No. 10 Ford and DiBenedettos No. 32 Ford tangled. Almirola spun. Matty D. was 27th. GODWIN KELLYS TAKE: NBCSN caught DiBenedetto walking aggressively up to Almirola on pit road, issuing a complaint and walking away. They run races in different ZIP codes, so this wont escalate. WINNER: Martin Truex Jr. REST OF TOP 5: Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer FIRST ONE OUT: Matt DiBenedetto DARK HORSE: AJ Allmendinger DONT BE SURPRISED IF: The Big 3Ž surge continues as Truex, with onlyŽ four wins, plays catch-up to Busch and Harvick.When do we start paying attention to Christopher Bell?Good question. The 23-year-old Oklahoma native has won the past three X“ nity Series races in Joe Gibbs No. 20 Toyota. He has four overall wins this year after a “ ve-win 2017 in the Truck Series. Several years ago, when sponsors grew on trees and lower-level victories often meant an eventual promotion, there would be plenty of speculation as to how Bell would be worked into Gibbs Cup plans for next year.Any chance of that?Not sure, but did you notice the strong second-place showing by Daniel Suarez at Pocono? His No. 19 team has been Gibbs leastproductive car since Carl Edwards retirement, and on the immediate heels of Bells third straight win, Suarez produced his career-best “ nish. Strictly a coincidence? Maybe, but maybe not. Sometimes its as if a racer-in-need can will a few more horses into the engine.„Ken Willis, ken.willis@ news-jrnl.com1. Kyle Busch 891 2.

Hold your breathBubba Wallace provided the holdyour-breath moment at Pocono when he crashed hard into Turn 1, destroying his No. 43 Chevy. Hardest one of my career,Ž the rookie said. There is no feeling like being helpless in that situation going off into Turn 1, and it scared the hell out of me.Ž2.

[AP/DERIK HAMILTON] 1. NASCAR Tres GrandesYes, we are growing weary of the term Big 3,Ž which describes the trio of drivers (Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr.) hogging NASCAR Cup Series wins. When asked about tying Tony Stewart on the all-time wins list with 49 victories, Busch said he wants to keep climbing and added this: Whats crazy is how this year keeps going. Its like Harvick gets one, we get one, Truex gets one and were all back and forth.Ž We get it.2. Bodines strategyDriver Geoff Bodine and crew chief Paul Andrews devised a winning Watkins Glen strategy in 1996, which many teams use as a guideline for the 2.45-mile road course. Bodine simply divided the 90-lap race into two pit stops at predetermined times and beat the likes of Terry Labonte, Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon that day.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, August 1, 2018 A11Members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School football team take the “ eld to begin practice for a new season just after midnight Monday in Parkland, Fla. The players, their school and community still grieve for the 17 lives lost at the school on Feb. 14. [PHOTOS BY JOE SKIPPER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Tim ReynoldsThe Associated PressPARKLAND, Fla. „ The first practice of the new season was over, and the only sound on the campus of Marjory Stone-man Douglas High School was dozens of football players screaming in delight.It was 2:15 a.m., and they were having a water balloon fight .At last, on a campus shaken by tragedy, there was joy.The Eagles „ now ambassadors for a school and community still reeling from the Feb. 14 massacre that left 17 people dead, including assistant football coach Aaron Feis who was killed while trying to use his body to shield students from the cascade of bullets „ took the field for practice at 12:01 a.m. Monday. Under Florida rules, teams could begin fall workouts July 30. The Eagles didnt wait a minute longer.This is the only thing we have to show our respect,Ž coach Willis May Jr. said. This is the way we can show our respect to those guys, with our great effort and with our great attitudes. Be leaders within the school. I hope we see all that from these kids this year.ŽDouglas has had the midnight madnessŽ practice on opening day several times before, but this was different. A uniformed sheriffs deputy was on campus throughout the evening, his patrol vehicle parked adjacent to the field during practice. The site of the shootings „ the 1200 building „ still stands, cordoned off by a chain-link fence. Many want it leveled, but for now it stands because its essentially evi-dence, a crime scene.Players, as they walked out of the locker room in rows of two shortly before midnight, had to stroll past the 1200 building on their way to the field for prac-tice. Barely anyone seemed to look its way.Our community is still very much in the traumatized healing process,Ž said Parkland Mayor Christine Hunschofsky, who sat in the bleachers with about 100 other people for the middle-of-the-night practice. This is not a sprint. This is absolutely a marathon. And we will never forget. No one who was here will ever forget. But we also have to look at a way forward.ŽAnd Monday was a small step forward.But the reminders of Feb. 14 remain everywhere.There is one locker with a door painted gold in the locker room „ it belonged to Joaquin GuacŽ Oliver, one of the 17 victims, the boy who adored Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade so much that his family buried him in a Wade jersey. The fence around the 1200 building is partially covered by banners with messages of sup-port from neighboring schools. Inside the cafeteria, where par-ents reported for the preseason meeting, another banner still hangs. Its from the students of Columbine High School, where a similar tragedy took place in 1999.On the field, there are more signs, reminders to play for Feis and how to be MSD Strong.Ž The shirts most of the coaches wore had some reminder of the shooting. May tugged on a new shirt just before practice, one with 17Ž in the middle, the reasoning there obvious.Put simply, theres no escap-ing what happened.A school that was a sanctuary is now, in many ways, a memorial .Are we perfect? Are we happy all the time? How can we be?Ž said Johanna Feis, the younger sister of the slain coach whose desk remains next to Mays inside a cramped football office and hasnt been issued to anyone else on the staff. Im not OK at this moment, but were pushing through, so we are OK.Ž The Eagles obviously did not want this attention.They did not want to be asked to play a Canadian team in Georgia on Sept. 1, but now view the trip as a great opportunity. They did not want to see Feis, athletic director Chris Hixon, cross country coach Scott Beigel „ all victims on Feb. 14 „ honored with the Best Coach award at the ESPYs. They did not want to turn Feis name into a motivational acronym, the letters in foot-ball parlance now standing for Fearless, Emotion, Intensity and Sacrifice.ŽThey would rather see things go back to normal, whatever that was before the afternoon of Feb. 14.You represent this high school,Ž May told his team just before practice started. Every time you put that Doug-las (jersey) on, make it count for something. Make it mean something. When somebody faces us this year, one thing I want them to know is, you aint getting an injured Eagle. Youre not facing an injured Eagle thats just going to let you roll over them. This is the only thing we have to show our respect SPORTS TICKER IN BRIEFPHILADELPHIANFL concussion claims hit $500M in less than 2 yearsMore than $500 million in claims were approved as of Monday under the NFLs concussion settlement, nearly a decade earlier than league officials estimated they would reach that amount.Claims administrators in the settlement released an updated report on the concussion settlement information website saying about $502 mil-lion had been approved in less than two years of the settlement. The original actuarial esti-mates from the NFL estimated a little more than $400 million would be paid out in the first decade.Attorneys for the retired players adjusted their estimates on the total payout of expected claims earlier this month, saying the set-tlement would likely reach $1.4 billion„ almost a half billion more than the NFL originally estimated.Almost 2,000 claims have been filed in less than two years, according to the update filed Monday. Hundreds more of the nearly 20,500 retired players signed up to be prequalified to file claims than were expected, outpacing all previous projections.NEW YORKPitino promises to tell all in upcoming memoirRick Pitino is ready to tell his story.The former Louisville coach has a memoir coming in September that will lay all his cards on the table,Ž Diversion Books announced Monday. Pitino: My Story,Ž co-written by Seth Kaufman, is coming out Sept. 4. The book will cover everything from his time coaching the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics to his triumphant and troubled career in the NCAA.Pitino was ousted from Louisville in 2017 amid a multiyear, mul-tischool investigation into the alleged payment of hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and kickbacks designed to influence recruits. The NCAA vacated the Cardinals 2013 national championship. Pitino, who has denied any wrong-doing, will take on opportunistic agentsŽ and predatory apparel companiesŽ among others, according to his publisher. By Regina Garcia Cano and Wayne ParryThe Associated PressLAS VEGAS „ Two titans of the casino indus-try are racing to cash in on the newly created U.S. sports betting market, taking steps to expand their footprint and strengthen their positions as more states approve necessary regulations and people become more interested in legally gambling on pro and college sports. MGM Resorts Interna-tional rea ched separate agreements Monday with a European bookmaker and a U.S.-based regional casino operator that will give it technological expertise and market access in several states where it doesnt already operate casino-resorts. Meanwhile, Caesars Entertainment opened the sports book at one of its New Jersey casinos and will do the same Wednes-day at another property.The moves from the casino operators come more than two months after the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way for all 50 states to offer legal sports betting, should they desire. The first of two agreements MGM Resorts announced Monday is a joint venture with the United Kingdom-based owner of Ladbrokes, GVC Holdings, that will lead to the creation of a sports betting and online gam-bling platform in the U.S. The platform will include a mobile app and website with features like odds and highlights.The separate agreement with Boyd Gaming Corp. opens markets for both companies, allowing them to offer sports betting and online wagering in 15 states where they operate casino-resorts. Boyd will give MGM access to Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana and other states pending the closure of planned casino purchases.We believe the joint venture deal is a net posi-tive for both GVC and MGM as MGM gains the invaluable, and difficult to recreate technology plat-form and online expertise that GVC possesses in a cost efficient manner,Ž Deutsche Bank analyst Carlo Santarelli wrote in a note to investors. We also believe the deal helps both Companies in their speed to market, an important element, in our view, of U.S. sports betting as we expect market shares on a state by state basis to be largely concen-trated over time.ŽMGM, Caesars jump into sports betting At Stoneman Douglas, football season comes with heavy heartsMembers of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School football team pray together as they began practice for a new season just after midnight on Monday in Parkland, Fla.

** B2 Wednesday, August 1, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Stan Choe and Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Technology stocks tumbled for the third day in a row Monday as a sharp reversal for some of Wall Streets recent favorites worsened. Major U.S. indexes skidded.Technology compa-nies have done far better than the rest of the market in recent years, but theyve fallen after Facebook and Twitter both reported weak user growth in the second quarter. Microsoft and Alphabet slumped Monday and Facebook, Twitter and Netflix have all fallen at least 20 per-cent from their record highs earlier this month. Elsewhere, energy companies climbed along with the price of crude oil but industrial companies like Caterpillar continued to lose ground. Meat producer Tyson became the latest company to cut its profit projections and point to tariffs.The S&P 500 lost 16.22 points, or 0.6 percent, at 2,802.60, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 144.23 points, or 0.6 percent, to 25,306.83.The Nasdaq compos-ite has more technology stocks among its ranks, and it fell 107.41 points, or 1.4 percent, to 7,630. The Nasdaq has fallen at least 1 percent for three days in a row, which hadnt happened in three years.Smaller companies fared as badly as larger ones. The Russell 2000 index slid 10.21 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,653.13.Twitter dropped 8 percent to $31.38, extending its 20.5 percent plunge on Friday. Facebook fell another 2.2 percent to $171.06. Netflix, which reported weak subscriber growth in early July, fell 5.7 per-cent to $334.96. Even with its recent tumble, the technology sector of the S&P 500 is up almost 26 percent over the last year. The S&P 500 itself is up a bit more than 13 percent over that time.Energy companies climbed as the price of benchmark U.S. oil spurted higher by 2.1 percent to $70.13 a barrel. Brent crude, the international standard, rose 0.9 percent to $74.97 a barrel in London.Wholesale gasoline lost 0.1 percent to $2.16 a gallon. Heating oil gained 0.7 percent to $2.17 a gallon.

But the central bank is widely expected to set the stage for tightening credit again in September for a third time this year and then likely raise rates once again by December. This years rate increases follow three hikes in 2017 and one each in 2015 and 2016.The central banks rate increases „ to a still-low level „ reflect the economys resilience and are intended to prevent growth from overheating or infla-tion from accelerating too high. But higher rates make borrowing costlier for con-sumers and businesses and can weigh down stock prices. Trump has made clear he has little patience for the Feds efforts to restrain the economy to control inflation.Tightening now hurts all that we have done,Ž Trump tweeted earlier this month, a day after he said in a television interview that he was not happyŽ with the Feds rate increases.Some of Trumps economic advisers, notably Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, have tried to strike a reassuring note that the White House doesnt want to interfere with the Feds policymaking.We as an administra-tion absolutely support the independence of the Fed, and the president has made it clear that this is the Feds decision,Ž Mnuchin said on Fox News Sunday.Ž The market expects interest rates to keep going up. So, the only question is how far and for how long? And we think the Fed will be very careful in managing the economy.ŽThe administrations message is that although borrowing rates remain historically low, tighter credit could eventually imperil an economy that grew at a brisk 4.1 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter, the government estimated Friday. Unemployment is at a low 4 percent.But there is worry, too, reflected in periodic sinking spells in financial markets, often involving developments in the Trump-led trade war, which has resulted in puni-tive tariffs on billions of dollars of U.S. and foreign goods. Staying putFed is set to leave rates alone as trade war raises anxiety BUSINESS President Donald Trump walks Sunday on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, after returning via Marine One. The Federal Reserve will meet this week to assess an economy that has just enjoyed a healthy spurt of growth but faces a ” urry of trade “ ghts pushed by Trump that could imperil that growth over time. [SUSAN WALSH/ ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO] By Candice ChoiThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ McDon-alds is fighting to hold onto customers as the Big Mac turns 50, but it isnt changing the makings of its most famous burger.The company is cele-brating the 1968 national launch of the doubledecker sandwich whose ingredients of two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions and a sesame seed bunŽ were seared into American memories by a TV jingle. But the milestone comes as the company reduces its number of U.S. stores. McDonalds said Thurs-day that customers are visiting less often. Other trendy burger options are reaching into the heartland.The Golden ArchesŽ still have a massive global reach, and the McDonalds brand of cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets and french fries remains recognizable around the world. But on its critical home turf, the company is toiling to stay relevant. Kale now appears in salads, fresh has replaced frozen beef patties in Quarter Pounders, and some stores now offer ordering kiosks, food delivery and barista-style cafes.The milestone for the Big Mac shows how much McDonalds and the rest of fast-food have evolved around it. Clearly, weve gotten a little more sophisticated in our menu develop-ment,Ž McDonalds CEO Steve Easterbrook said in a phone interview.As with many of its popular and long-lasting menu items, the idea for the Big Mac came from a franchisee.In 1967, Michael James JimŽ Delligatti lobbied the company to let him test the burger at his Pittsburgh restaurants.Later, he acknowledged the Big Macs similarity to a popular sandwich sold by the Big Boy chain.This wasnt like discovering the light bulb. The bulb was already there. All I did was screw it in the socket,Ž Delligatti said, according to Behind the Arches.ŽMcDonalds agreed to let Delligatti sell the sandwich at a single loca-tion, on the condition that he use the companys standard bun. It didnt work. Delligatti tried a bigger sesame seed bun, and the burger soon lifted sales by more than 12 percent.After similar results at more stores, the Big Mac was added to the national menu in 1968. Other ideas from franchi-sees that hit the big time include the Filet-O-Fish, Egg McMuffin, Apple Pie (once deep-fried but now baked), and the Sham-rock Shake.The company has benefited from the inge-nuity of its small business men,Ž wrote Ray Kroc, who transformed the McDonalds into a global franchise, in his book, Grinding It Out.ŽFranchisees still play an important role, driving the recent switch to fresh from frozen for the beef in Quarter Pounders, Easterbrook says. 50 years on, McDonalds and fast-food evolve around Big Mac BRIEFCASESPRINGDALE, ARK.Tyson cites tariffs in cutting earnings outlookTyson Foods is citing higher tariffs and uncertainty about trade policies in cut-ting its profit forecast.The Springdale, Arkansas-based com-pany said Monday the tariffs are primarily affecting chicken and pork prices, in the U.S. and elsewhere. President Donald Trump has imposed tariffs on a range of goods, and China retaliated with tariffs on U.S. exports.Tariffs on steel and aluminum have pres-sured automakers, and General Motors also cut its outlook for the year.Tyson Foods Inc. says it now expects adjusted earnings of about $5.70 to $6 for the year. It pre-viously expected $6.55 to $6.70 per share. CEO Tom Hayes said chang-ing global trade policies here and abroadŽ and the uncertainty of any resolutionŽ contributed to lower prices and an oversupply. Caterpillar has a big 2Q, raises outlook againCaterpillars second-quarter easily beat Wall Street expectations thanks in part to the blistering pace of construction and demand for big machines, a the company boosted its full-year earnings forecast again.Shares rose more than 3 percent Monday in premarket trading.Caterpillar now antic-ipates full-year adjusted earnings in a range of $11 to $12 per share.

The Camp is appropriately named JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge. JCLC took place at Camp Rudder, Eglin Air Force Base from July 22-27. At JCLC cadets from 12 schools across the panhandle are reorganized into squads. Four squads make a platoon. Four platoons make up a company. The mission of JROTC is to motivate young people to be better citizens. The week long camp combines hands-on leadership training as the cadets participate in a wide range of activities ranging from climbing a rock wall to rappelling down a tower to negotiating a leaders reaction course. Other activities include aquatics where they learn water survival / drown proofing, low ropes which builds their team building skills, first aid on how to evaluate a casualty, treat for shock and immobilizing fractures, perform CPR, control bleeding, land navigation course, and survival skills. JCLC concludes with a cadet leadership board, a platoon drill competition, and a field day competition. These events are accomplished requiring cadets to rotate leadership positions. The cadets plan and organize their units for each days activities. The cadets sleep in military barracks and eat their breakfast, lunch and supper in a dining facility. There is little free time. Cadets are training well into the evening hours. The Blue Devil cadets performed exceptionally well. Cadet Amber Lewis was awarded the swimming arc to wear on her uniform for her outstanding performance during aquatics training. She also received a camp staff arc for her exceptional leadership skills as a black hat. Cadet Tristen Nored commanded her platoon in the Drill Competition and was also awarded the ropes arc for her outstanding performance at the rope bridge training. Cadet Austin Kanzlemar successfully conquered his fear of heights and gained trust in his equipment and belay man as he rappelled down the 36 foot rappel tower. Cadet Emilie Forehand boosted her self-esteem and conquered all of the events at JCLC. Cadet Skylar Willingham excelled as the youngest Blue Devil cadet, met a lot of friends and is looking forward to next years camp. Every cadet completed all tasks and are now graduates of JCLC. They look forward to their upcoming school year with their opportunity to be leaders in the JROTC Blue Devil Battalion. First Sergeant Randy Burlew stated that "he was very proud of all the cadets for their dedication to excel at the leadership camp." He also stated that "JCLC was successful due to the cadets, cadre and chaperones working together as a team." Although camp is focused on the cadets, 1SG Burlew would like to thank his battle buddy LTC Gregory Cole for his hard work and dedication to making JCLC a success. Greg entered JCLC as the Battalions Supply and Logistic Officer but prior to the camp ending, was nominated and accepted the job as the JCLC Camp Commander and the 6th Brigade Area Coordinator. 1SG Burlew and LTC Cole would also like to send a big thank you out to Mrs. Andrea Biddle. She attended JCLC as a chaperone from the Blue Devil Battalion. She got the honors of supervising and training with second platoon. Mrs. Biddle also got the privilege of rappelling down the rappel tower with her daughter Amber Lewis.Blue Devil Battalion receives accolades from JROTC Cadet Leadership ChallengeThe Blue Devil Battalion (from left to right) includes, back row: Cadet Austin Kanzlemar and Cadet Tristen Nored; front row: Cadet Skylar Willingham, Cadet Amber Lewis, and Cadet Emilie Forehand [SPECIAL TO TIMES-ADVERTISER] GOT SCHOOL NEWS?If you have a school activity or news event you'd like covered, please send information to: Already have photos or an article you'd like to share?

GIDDIENS OBITUARIES |CONTINUED FROM B5 By American Heart Association Its the time of year when temperatures soar, and sometimes to deadly effect, especially for the elderly and very young. Already this year, sweltering days have proved dangerous as heat waves smother parts of the world. At least 70 people reportedly died this summer from scorching heat and humidity that hit eastern and central Canada, while more than 40 people died in Japan. More than 600 people die every year from heatrelated illnesses that are preventable, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency estimates more than 65,000 Americans visit an emergency room for acute heat illness each summer. I think people underestimate how quickly it happens. And when it starts to happen, if someone is progressing to heat exhaustion or heat stroke, you lose your self-awareness,Ž said Dr. Robert OConnor, professor and chair of emergency medicine at the University of Virginia. Its important to keep an eye on those around you for heat-related problems. If someone is flushed, dizzy or uncoordinated, it can be an early sign.Ž Dehydration can begin within just a few hours of extreme heat, so drinking extra fluids is important, especially when taking certain medications. Fatigue, headaches, muscle cramps, dizziness, sleepiness and dry mouth can all be signs of dehydration. Dehydration causes the heart to work harder, putting it at risk. Hydration helps the heart more easily pump blood through the blood vessels to the muscles. And it helps the muscles work efficiently. A 2016 Environmental Protection Agency analysis of heat-related deaths said high temps could be a factor in many more deaths than officials realize … or count. By studying how daily death rates vary with temperature in selected cities, scientists have found that extreme heat contributes to far more deaths than the official death certificates might suggest,Ž the report said. This is because the stress of a hot day can increase the chance of dying from a heart attack, other heart conditions, or respiratory disea ses such as pneumonia.Ž While infants and the elderly are more vulnerable to problems from heat, OConnor said sometimes medicines can make someone more sensitive to heat and dehydration. They should talk to their doctor and look up their medications to see if it predisposes them,Ž he said. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are serious medical emergencies that require treatment. Both can cause headaches, nausea or vomiting. Heat stroke also can cause a high fever, warm skin with no sweating and confusion or unconsciousness. Beyond some of the obvious and sometimes extreme physical symptoms brought on by sweltering temperatures, a recent study showed it could affect how we think. And it doesnt just affect the most vulnerable. A group of Harvard researchers published an observational study in July showing students who lived in dormitories without air conditioning during a heat wave performed worse on a series of cognitive tests compared with students who lived in air-conditioned dorms. The study was conducted over 12 consecutive days in the summer of 2016. Students in buildings without AC experienced 13.4 percent longer reaction times on color-word tests, and 13.3 percent lower scores on addition/subtraction tests compared with students in air-conditioned rooms. The research showed students in rooms with AC were not just faster in their responses, but also more accurate. Hot summers and heat waves wont be going away any time soon, according to federal research. In fact, unusually high temperatures have become more common in recent decades, and heat waves are expected to become longer, more frequent and more intense in the future, according to the EPA and the CDC. OConnor said thinking ahead and being prepared in the heat will help prevent trouble. Drink plenty of fluids and limit the amount of time you are in the heat,Ž he said. Even if someone comes into a cooler environment for a few minutes every hour, that can prevent a heat-related illness. Limit outdoor activity to early morning or late evening, and stay in the shade,Ž OConnor said. It might be tough if you are working outside or on the golf course. Soak a towel in cold water and put it around your neck. Evaporative cooling, dousing in cold water and letting it evaporate, is the best way to eliminate heat.Ž600More than 600 people die every year from heat-related illnesses that are preventable, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 65,000The agency estimates more than 65,000 Americans visit an emergency room for acute heat illness each summer.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, August 1, 2018 B7 FAITHThe Israeli government recently approved a bill into law that defines Israel as the national home of the Jewish people.Ž On July 19, Israels parliament (Knesset) passed the bill in a 62-55 vote despite differing opinions over the relies and democratic character of the country. The bill states that Jerusalem is the unitedŽ capital of Israel and recognizes the Jewish Shabbat as the official day of rest. The law will allow non-Jews to observe their own Sabbath. Israels Independence Day is now an official holiday with the passing of the bill and Holocaust Remembrance Day and Memorial Day have been recognized as days of mourning. Although the law cements day-to-day practices, it also states that the Jewish people have an exclusive right to national self-determination.Ž The self-determination clause makes Israels vow to not allow Palestinian descendants of refugees the ability to settle en masse, which could make Jews a minority in the Jewish state, according to government officials. STUDY SAYS According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, Americans are divided on President Donald Trumps nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedys U.S. Supreme Court seat. Overall, 41 percent think the U.S. senate should confirm Kanvanaugh, while 36 percent said they should not. GOOD BOOK? Proud: My Fight for an Unlikely American DreamŽ by Ibtihaj Muhammad and Lori Tharps Growing up in New Jersey as the only African American Muslim in hijab in town, at school, and on the playing fields, Ibtihaj Muhammad always had to find her own way. When she discovered fencing, a sport traditionally reserved for the wealthy and white, once again she had to defy expectations and make a place for herself in a sport she grew to love. Even though Ibtihaj would start fencing later than most, at 13-years-old her talent was undeniable. From winning state championships with her high school team to three-time All-America selections at Duke University, Ibtihaj was poised for success, but the fencing community wasnt ready to welcome her with open arms. „ Hachette Books THE WORD cantor: In Judaism, a synagogue official who leads the musical part of a service. „ RELIGION AROUND THE WORLD According to the CIA World Factbook, the religious makeup of Hong Kong is: „ Buddhist or Taoist: 27.9 percent „ Protestant: 6.7 percent „ Roman Catholic: 5.3 percent „ Muslim: 4.2 percent „ Hindu: 1.4 percent „ Sikh: 0.2 percent „ Other: 54.3 percentWEEK IN RELIGION CHURCHESFrom Page B4
