RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY Â… Residents of the Dogwood Lakes community came out in droves to discuss the roads in the subdivision with the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners when they met in regular session August 27.Due to roads being in various states of disrepair, residents attended the meeting to inquire about the county repairing the roads, but the determination of who owned the roads came into question.County Attorney Bran-don Young was tasked by the board to determine who, if anyone, owned the roads and how to proceed with them being repaired. Young said just as his two County: no ownership of Dogwood Lakes roadsBy Staff ReportBONIFAY Â… As part of a fundraising effort, Bonifay Fire-Rescue held a boot drive on August 25.The firemen were out in full force at the intersection of Highways 79 and 90 in an effort to raise funds to help in the purchase of new extrication equipment.Although early in January the department filed for a $25,000 federal grant to help pay for the equipment, that grant is in pending status. With a complete set of extrication tools costing roughly $40,000 the grant would not cover the entire amount. Firefighters set out Saturday with a goal of raising $3,000. After spending the day at the intersection and demonstrating what these tools are for, dona-tions added up tonearly $3,500.Assistant Fire Chief Travis Cook says he is once again amazed at the communityÂs generosity. "It never ceases to amaze me the generosity of the citizens of our community as well as the visitors passing through our city," said Cook. "We are an ever grateful organization for the love and support we receive."Bonifay Fire-Rescue boot drive reaches goalTOP: Bonifay Fire-Rescue were on scene Saturday raising funds with a boot drive to purchase new extrication euipment.

[SPECIAL TO TIMESADVERTISER PHOTOS] See COUNTY, A2By Jacqueline BostickTimes-Advertiser 850-630-6167 | @_JBostick firstname.lastname@example.orgHOLMES COUNTY A case involving the naming of one road in Holmes County will soon have its day in court.After two filings of dismissal, a Bonifay resident is hopeful the Hon. Judge Register will be in favor of his request to have the name of a road named after his grandfather to be reverted to Byslma Road after another resident had the road name changed to Tom Messer Road in February with the approval of Holmes County Board of County Commissioners.The hearing will be held 9 a.m. Sept. 4.Attorney Kerry Atkinson filed suit on behalf of George Bylsma in regards to the alleged improper road name change after a petition for the change was made by Bonifay resident Tamphus Messer and approved by commissioners.Attempts to reach Messer and Holmes County Board of County Commissioner Attorney Brandon Young for comment were unsuccessful."I feel the judge is going to award to change Bylsma Road back," Bylsma said. "If he doesn't, then I'll appeal it. It's just black and white."Bylsma said he has collected more signatures from residents on the road who confirm they did not approve the road name change and had not been notified of the pending change. He also said he hopes the county commissioners who he said did not comply with the county's policy regarding requirements for a road name change, to be held accountable."They knowingly ... everyone of them knew it was not right that they passed it," he said.Bylsma is requesting in the suit that the name to be returned to Bylsma Road, which it had been titled for 25 years prior to MesserÂs request, initially made in 2014. The suit also includes attempting to permanently restrict the county from ever changing the name of the road again.Road name lawsuit goes to court on Sept. 4
** A2 Wednesday, August 29, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Jim Turner News Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis drew the largest amount of public matching funds last week, as the overall total going to statewide candidates before TuesdayÂs primary elections neared $5 million.DeSantis and three other gubernatorial candidates --Republican Adam Putnam and Democrats Andrew Gillum and Gwen Graham --have combined to receive nearly $3.73 million in public funding since late July.Statewide candidates need to voluntary apply for matching funds, with several declining to do so. Under the program, the state matches contributions of $250 or less from individual donors.Overall, the state has handed out $4.84 million so far for the 2018 elections. For the 2014 primary and general elections, Florida sent out $4.3 million to candi-dates using the program. In 2010, 10 candidates received $6.1 million from the program.The program has long faced criticism, including from a couple of candidates in this yearÂs elections who call the distributions a waste of taxpayer dollars.On Friday, the Florida Division of Elections sent $144,209 to six of the eight candidates who have qual-ified for matching funds, though the amounts last week were relatively small compared to earlier checks.DeSantis, a Northeast Florida congressman, received $55,110, which raised his matching-fund total to $975,836.Putnam, the stateÂs two-term agriculture commissioner who is going up against DeSantis in the Republican primary, didnÂt receive any money last week. Putnam has drawn about $1.04 million from the program.Graham, a former congresswoman who received a $33,922 check from the state on Friday, has received more than $1.2 million through the program.Gillum, the Tallahas-see mayor, got a check for $29,377 on Friday and has received $495,065 from the state.In the race for attorney general, Democrat Sean Shaw, a state House member from Tampa, picked up a check for $8,818 from the state on Friday. Shaw has drawn $205,276 in matching funds.A Leon County circuit judge Friday issued a ruling to decertify Demo-crat Ryan Torrens from the race for attorney general because of a qualifying-related issue. Torrens, who is appealing the ruling, did not draw any state match-ing funds Friday but has received $88,693 from the program.On the Republican side of the race for attorney general, former Hillsbor-ough County Circuit Judge Ashley Moody picked up $9,287 on Friday and has received $344,600 from the program.State Sen. Denise Grimsley, a Sebring Republican who is the only candidate for agriculture commissioner involved in the program, picked up $6,565 on Friday and has received $264,885 from the state.Republican Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, who doesnÂt have a primary opponent and will face Democrat Jeremy Ring in the November general election, received $1,130 in matching funds Friday. Patronis has received $297,095 from the state.Public nancing before primaries hits $4.84 milliontwo predecessors had determined: the county did not, in fact, own the roads.After researching the matter, Young determined that the owner of the roads is the now defunct corporation that originally built the subdivision on the late 1960Âs.Young advised residents they could form a home owners association in an effort to raise funds to repair the roads. However, he said, people could not be forced to join the HOA or to follow any guidelines set by it either. The last HOA ended in 1992 and another has yet to be reformed.The only piece of property the county owns is the lake bottom, which also came into discussion during the meeting.Due to a drainage pipe eroding away, the lake has dried out and the pipe will need to be replaced. The board is working with the county engineer to determine the best course of action to repair the pipe and refill the lake.A new pump will most likely need to be purchased to refill the lake over time with water from Wrights Creek. Resident Brenda Blitch said she was present when the lake went dry last time and needed to be refilled.ÂIf I remember correctly, home owners donated the pump last time to refill the lake,ÂŽ said Blitch. ÂThat is something that could be looked into.ÂŽCounty Coordinator Joey Marsh stated this was a great time for res-idents to make needed repairs to property.ÂWith the water being gone, now would be the perfect time to make repairs to docks or prop-erty that cannot be done with the water being present,ÂŽ he said.In other business, Engineer Cliff Knauer advised the commission they have been awarded the permit for the Highway 2 Boat Ramp project. Having received the necessary permits, the project was approved to go out for bid by the board.Engineer Rudy Mall from Dewberry Engineers presented the board with preliminary site plans for the future county annex. The 51,000 square foot design is a starting point for commissioners and constitutional officers to determine what is going to best meet the needs of each office and the residents of the county.The cost estimate for COUNTYFrom Page A1 By Dara KamNews Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE Leav-ing the Sunshine StateÂs limited train system in the dust, FloridaÂs gubernato-rial wannabes are hopping on planes, buses and auto-mobiles as they crisscross the peninsula making last-ditch attempts to garner votes in advance of Tues-dayÂs primary elections.Former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, Tallahas-see Mayor Andrew Gillum and former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine all made whistle stops in Tal-lahassee this week as part of their plans to capture the Democratic nomination for governor in a crowded primary that also includes Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene and Winter Park entrepreneur Chris King.Rhea Stevens, 46, was among about 30 support-ers who waited outside the Leon County courthouse Thursday morning for Graham and her husband, Stephen Hurm, to cast ballots.Stevens brought along her 16-year-old daughter to cheer on the candidate they hope will become FloridaÂs first female governor. ÂHer spirit. Her person-ality. SheÂs sincere. Very caring. And sheÂs humble,ÂŽ Stevens, who works as a domestic-violence counselor, said, when asked why she supports Graham. ÂSheÂs just real. And sheÂs a woman.ÂŽStevens, who is black, said her friends are split between Graham and Gillum, who would be the stateÂs first black governor if elected in November.But, Stevens insisted, ÂItÂs her time,ÂŽ reiterating her endorsement of Graham.More than 150 miles away, 34-year-old Sondra Fetner cast her ballot at the Murray Hill branch of the Jacksonville Public Library.Fetner, who lives in the upscale Avondale neighborhood, said she had registered as a voter with no party affiliation until 2016, when she registered as a Republican so she could vote in a heated race for state attorney.But the mother of two said she switched her reg-istration again this year, signing up as a Democrat so she could weigh in on TuesdayÂs gubernatorial primary.ÂItÂs a really important race,ÂŽ Fetner told The News Service of Florida from the front seat of her SUV. ÂThere was a really good line-up for the prima-ries. It was a tough one.ÂŽFetner wouldnÂt disclose which candidate won her vote, but said the choice was between Âtwo good candidates instead of picking between two candidates I didnÂt really like,ÂŽ referring to Agricul-ture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, the two Republicans duking it out to replace outgoing Gov. Rick Scott.As the ÂestablishmentÂŽ candidate, Putnam had been considered a virtual shoo-in for the nomination Â„ until DeSantis bagged the backing of President Donald Trump. Now, most polls show DeSantis lead-ing the two-term Cabinet member, who started his political career more than two decades ago in the Florida Legislature and also served in Congress.Speaking to about 80 supporters Friday at a popular buffet-style restaurant, The Oaks, in Marianna, Putnam continued to press his case that, as a fifth-generation Floridian with roots in the cattle and citrus industries, heÂs the best man to earn the GOP mantle for governor.As proof, Putnam joked heÂs the only candidate who knows how to properly pronounce Lafayette Â„ ÂLah-FAY-etteÂŽ Â„ County.Jackson County Commissioner Clint Pate said voters in the Panhandle community know Putnam because ÂheÂs been here a bunch of times, heÂs been around a long time and people feel heÂs done a good job.ÂŽPate pointed out DeSan-tis Âis getting a lot of coverage from Fox News.ÂŽ Pate said his mother, like many other Republicans, is a fan of the conservative news network.ÂMy mother said, ÂI like that Ron DeSantis.Â When I pointed out that (DeSantis) is running against Adam, she said, ÂI donÂt like him anymore,Â ÂŽ Pate told the News Service.The candidatesÂ schedules in the final days leading up to the primaries would make even the heartiest Floridians wilt.Putnam is headed to the GOP stronghold of The Villages on Saturday, followed by stops in Sanford and Temple Terrace before teaming up with Attorney General Pam Bondi for appearances in Jacksonville, Orlando and the Panhandle on Monday. HeÂll wind up with an election-night party in Lakeland on Tuesday.DeSantis is doing a six-city statewide blitz Monday, traveling to Jack-sonville, Palm Harbor, Fort Myers, Miami, West Palm Beach and Daytona Beach, before heading to Orlando for an election-night gala.Graham, who after voting Thursday headed south for a campaign event with singer Jimmy Buffett in Hollywood, spent Friday on a ÂworkdayÂŽ in Martin County alongside the Ocean Research and Conservation Associa-tion focused on the health effects of a toxic algae out-break in the region.ÂThis race is going to determine FloridaÂs future,ÂŽ Graham told a clutch of reporters after casting her ballot in her hometown Thursday morning.On Saturday, sheÂll do a workday at Se7en Bites Caf in Orlando. The next morning, Graham will attend a service at an Afri-can-American church in Hillsborough County, fol-lowed by a work session at Open Caf in Tampa.Governor hopefuls in race for votes

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. BareÂ“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett ItÂs bac k-to-school week for millions of American children, which means itÂs time to debate the federal governmentÂs role in deciding what our kids should eat for lunch. To understand how the federal government got into the nutrition business, a little history is in order. The government got into the school nutrition business during the Depression. FDR saw an opportunity to feed kids while winning the favor of farmers by buying their food with government money. In 1946, the Truman administration formalized the fedsÂ school-nutrition role. During both World War I and World War II, after all, the government had noticed some recruits suffered from malnutrition and stunted growth. To address the problem and win the favor of food producers the National School Lunch Act was passed into law. Though there lots of debate and politics still surround the program, the premise is reasonable enough: For some of AmericaÂs poorest kids, a hot breakfast or lunch at school may be the only decent food they have all day. In response to AmericaÂs obesity epidemic, first lady Michelle Obama championed good nutrition through the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. It limited fats, sodium and sweets in school lunches, as it reduced portion sizes. The Trump administration, which argued that many kids refused to eat the healthier, lesstasty fare, relaxed the schoollunch rules. According to Business Insider, kids are again consuming Âsugary chocolate milk, fewer whole grains, and around 300 extra milligrams of salt.ÂŽ All I know is that I surely wish I could have enjoyed hot, government-subsidized grub at St. Germaine School in the 1970s. But my mother, a master at pinching pennies, packed our lunches every day. Early in the school year, she approached the daily burden with great enthusiasm. We never got name-brand treats, such as Hostess Ho Hos, but sheÂd make a fresh ham sandwich, give us a fat peach or pear and sometimes mix up a batch of butterscotch pudding and put it in a small thermal container. Unfortunately, her enthusiasm waned by the second week of school. The rest of the year, my lunch consisted of two end pieces of CelloneÂs Italian bread and a hunk of bologna glued together by warm mayonnaise, plus some celery or carrots, some peanut butter crackers, and a Washington apple for desert; the apple was usually littered with multiple halfmoon cuts, as my sisters examined every apple with their fingernails before choosing one to eat.School Lunch Bell Signals Another Round in FightMyth-creation is a distinctive attribute of American s. One of my favorite movies is The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. John FordÂs classic told the story of a man played by Jimmy Stewart, who was given credit for killing a homicidal thug in a small western town. In fact, it wasnÂt Stewart who killed villainous Lee Marvin but John Wayne. No one knew it, though, because Wayne was hidden from view when he pulled the trigger. Stewart got the glory, and a myth was born at the expense of a more complicated truth. This celluloid masterpiece says more about the American character than most of the sociological theses published over the last century. We want heroes, and we want them to be perfect, and we have an amazing ability to forgive them for not living up to their reputations. Even when presented with strong evidence that these heroes have been lying to us, we defend them. That became obvious with such painful clarity this past month, with three glaring and highly-publicized examples. The first case of what I call Â#MeTwoFacedÂŽis Asia Argento, the Italian actress most recently known as the girlfriend of Anthony Bourdain. Asia, while an accomplished artist in her own right, has always been defined by the men she knew, including her famous father Dario, who is known as the king of horror. It was revealed this week that Asia paid almost $400,000 in what some have called Âhush moneyÂŽ to a young man who claimed she molested him when he was 17. Asia, after an initial silence, came out and started attacking the victim as a liar, saying that she never had a sexual relationship with him. She even insinuated that the young man had essentially tried to blackmail her dead boyfriend Bourdain because she knew he was Âa man of great perceived wealth.ÂŽ Imagine if Bill Cosby had made those claims about his accusers. Imagine if Al Franken had said that heÂd been asked to grope the woman in the photo. . by the woman herself. Imagine if Kevin Spacey had said that the male actor heÂd allegedly assaulted had Âasked for it.ÂŽ Imagine if Louis CK had said women had begged to get a good look at his penis. Imagine, please, that the accuser was a woman and that she was treated the way that Asia Argento, the strident Joan of Arc of the #MeToo movement was treating an actor who, at the age of 7, had played her son. We would have hordes of ladies in black dresses and linked arms singing some random song from Lilith Fair. Now consider the case of Avital Ronell, who was found responsible for sexually harassing a male Ph. D student by her employer, New York University. The professor of German and Comparative Literature denies the harassment and says that the relations between the two a lesbian and a gay man were consensual And instead of supporting the victim, her feminist friends are outraged that a woman is being held accountable for abuse. One supporter suggested that women could never be abusers. According to Dana Bolger, an expert in Title IX policy, Âthe vast majority of Title IX cases are protecting male victims from male perpetrators, or female victims from male perpetrators.ÂŽ Then we have Gretchen Carlson, the former Miss America who wrote a book about female solidarity, and who has now been credibly accused of bullying the current Miss America, Cara Mund, and other women.The Hypocrisy of #MeToo and Female Solidarity Christine Flowers Tom PurcellItÂs time for another great season of college football. But take a look at some of the behavior of college football head coaches lately, and itÂs enough to spoil your appetite for that tailgate BBQ pulled pork sandwich. LetÂs go to the scoreboard, fans: Â€Maryland head coach D.J. Durkin has been placed on administrative leave after a player died from heatstroke during a team practice Â„ which eventually led to shocking allegations that Durkin had created a toxic culture that led to players being routinely humiliated, cursed at and physically abused by Maryland coaches. Â€ Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has been suspended for three games, while the university investigates accusations by the exwife of former OSU assistant Zach Smith that Meyer was aware of SmithÂs history of domestic violence against her Â„ but took no action because Smith was a valuable staff member. A report issued late Wednesday night details other troubling behavior Meyer failed to act on, including SmithÂs visit to a strip club on a Florida recruiting trip and allegations that Smith lied about recruiting trips he never took and slept with a secretary in the football program. Â€ North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora raised eyebrows when he callously dismissed the overwhelming scientific research that links football to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease. Fedora suggested the research is part of some murky conspiracy to put football Âunder attackÂŽ Â„ and even, Fedora fretted, cause Âour country (to go) down, too.ÂŽ And the season hasnÂt even started! The syndrome of college football head coaches viewing themselves as all-powerful overlords is alive and well. But instead of condemning the coaches for acting like titans who stride the Earth rather than mortals who stroll the sidelines, maybe itÂs time to chastise ourselves for fueling their delusions of grandeur. WeÂre all guilty of constructing the visorwielding Frankensteins now tromping across campuses throughout America. WeÂre all guilty of creating The Great Head Coach, the larger-than-life leader, the visionary ÂCEO of Football.ÂŽ So itÂs time for all of us Â„ whether weÂre rabid fans or casual ones Â„ to rewrite the playbook on coaches. ItÂs time for us all to remember that at its core, college football is about the young guys playing it Â„ not about the older guys watching it. ItÂs time for us to start calling out the sports media sycophants who overglamorize coaches and reduce the actual players to padded props carrying out the coachÂs brilliant vision. And, finally, itÂs time for us to demand more public accountability and transparency from college head football coaches and those who hire them Â„ athletic directors, college presidents and boards of trustees. How can we have fewer unseemly stories about coaches acting like theyÂre headset-wearing gods on pedestals? The first step is simple: stop bowing to them.

Historic stretchThe next two weekends of racing will be full of motorsports history and lore. The NASCAR Cup Series has been racing at Darlington Raceway since 1950 and returns to the track Âtoo tough to tameÂŽ for its annual throwback racing weekend. After competitors race in South Carolina, it is on to Indianapolis, which is hosting its 25th Cup Series race, known as the Brickyard 400. Indy has hosted racing for more than 100 years.2. Smell of desperationWith only two regularseason NASCAR Cup Series races left in the regular season, there is desperation spreading through the garage area. Twelve playoff positions have been clinched, leaving only four openings for the postseason. Alex Bowman is on the points bubble with a 79-point cushion on Ricky Stenhouse Jr. But should Stenhouse or any driver outside the points wall win, Bowman would not make the playoffs.3. Championship battleOn the other end of the points spectrum are Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick battling for the regular-season Cup Series championship. The winner of that title will earn 15 of those golden playoff points, which drivers carry over from one knockout round to the next. Busch has a 43-point lead on Harvick. Martin Truex Jr. had a pile of playoff points that he used as a safety net to carry him to the 2017 Cup Series championship.Â„ Godwin Kelly, godwin.kelly@ news-jrnl.comKevin Harvick in the No. 4 Ford leads the Â“ eld past the green Â” ag at the start of the 2017 Southern 500 at historic Darlington Raceway.

The execution of Atahuallpa, the last free reigning emperor, marked the end of 300 years of Inca civilization. 1779Battle of Chemung or Newtown, New York On this day in 1779, at what is modern-day Elmira, New York, near the stateÂs southwestern border with Pennsylvania, Continental forces led by Major General John Sullivan and Brigadier General James Clinton defeat a combined force of Loyalists and Indians commanded by Captain Walter Butler and Chief Joseph Brant. 1862North and South clash at the Second Battle of Bull Run Confederate General Robert E. Lee deals a stinging defeat to Union General John Pope at the Second Battle of Bull Run, VirginiaÂ„a battle that arose out of the failure of Union General George McClellanÂs Peninsular campaign earlier in the summer. Frustrated with McClellan, who was still camped on the James Peninsula southeast of Richmond, President Abraham Lincoln and Generalin-Chief Henry Halleck decided to pull a substantial part of McClellanÂs Army of the Potomac and send it to General John PopeÂs newly formed Army of Virginia. 1876Charles F.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, August 29, 2018 B1By Diane M. RobinsonThe News | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comWASHINGTON AND HOLMES COUNTIES Â… Education, prevention and intervention are the goals of the Fresh Start Coalition of Washington County. The program was founded in 2004 by Thetch ÂSethÂŽ McKinnie who had struggled with addiction for more than 30 years. McKinnie however, was passionate about preventing others, especially youth, from being trapped in the vicious cycle of substance abuse. It was while sitting in a jail cell that McKinnie was given the name ÂFresh Start,ÂŽ a name that went on to create the coalition. McKinnie served as president until his passing in 2016. What began as an antidrug coalition has morphed into a coalition to help find resources for things such as child care, mental health counseling, drug rehab, and employability skills. The coalition also holds special events geared toward prevention, such as track meets, chess clubs and water activities. Current President Reverend Thomas Smith says the program has helped to feed families and help in any way they could. ÂIn the course of the last 15 years we have helped put food on tables of families in need,ÂŽ said Thomas. ÂWe have assisted those who needed it. We do everything we can to help those in need.ÂŽ The coalition has a working relationship with the TJ Rouhlac Enrichment Center where they work with youth involved in the ÂDegree SeekerÂŽ program. Since the programs inception, there have been 27 enrolled; out of those, nine have received degrees thus far. One of those success stories is that of SmithÂs son, Seaborn. Smith received his degree and went on to join the U.S. Army where he is a Second Lieutenant. Historian Jaunita Finney says one of their goals in assisting the community is to be better. ÂWe are here to assist the community to be a better community,ÂŽ said Finney. ÂWhen we work together as a community, there is no end to what we can accomplish.ÂŽ Finney also says they help other communitybased organizations. ÂWhen the Enrichment Center needed help opening the gym, we helped to raise funds for insurance so they could open it,ÂŽ said Finney. ÂBecause that is a valuable resource for our children, we will continue to support.ÂŽ The coalition is also a registered third party voter registrar. You can find them at various events in the Tri-County area registering people to vote in Washington, Holmes and Jackson counties. While Fresh Start works primarily with Washington County, no matter where you come from you will not be turned away. The 501c(3) coalition is funded mostly out of the pockets of board members with the help of private donations. In order for the activities and resources to continue on, the coalition is in need of more community support. The donations would cover things such as, sports equipment, shirts, food, gas and other needs. In an effort to live by the adage, ÂIt takes a villageÂŽ Board Member Alfred Finney says we must first be united. ÂIt takes a village to raise a child,ÂŽ said Finney. ÂWe have to work in unity as a whole community to continue to assist our youth to do and be better.ÂŽ If you would like to make a donation, volunteer or just find out more information go online to https://fresh-start-coalition.site123.me/ or call 850-638-7884.Fresh Start Coalition: Working in unityFresh Start Coalition Founder Thetch ÂSethÂŽ McKinnie (center) posed with winners from the Â“ rst track meet held by the coalition in 2004. Above: Local youth answered a question posed by Fresh Start about how to stay away from drugs with answers such as ÂKeep me in this programÂŽ. Pictured are some of those youth.

The Nasdaq composite index topped 8,000 for the first time.The trade deal is far from final and few details were made public during trading hours Monday, but investors were encouraged that the countries are working toward a resolution.The U.S. still needs to reach an understanding with Canada, the third party in the accord and the second-largest trading partner for the U.S. CanadaÂs NAFTA negotiator, Foreign Min-ister Chrystia Freeland, is scheduled to fly to Wash-ington Tuesday to try to restart talks.Automakers, which would stand to benefit from warmer trade relations between the U.S. and Mexico, rose sharply. Major exporters including chemical and industrial companies rose, and so did banks and technology companies.ÂMost of this year has been a series of potentially negative events on trade, setting up barriers to trade,ÂŽ said Craig Birk, chief investment officer for Personal Capital. ÂThe market is welcoming any-thing thatÂs the opposite.ÂŽBirk said investors were glad to get some good news on trade even though talks on a NAFTA replacement will likely continue beyond the Congressional elections this fall and into 2019.

Online retailer Amazon rose 1.2 percent to $1,927.68.The benchmark S&P 500 has risen for seven of the last eight weeks following strong corporate earnings and growing optimism the U.S. would work out its differences with several major trading partners.

Stocks rise as US, Mexico announce trade dealFrotman says White House is openly hostile to protecting student loan borrowersBy Ken SweetThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ The governmentÂs top official overseeing the $1.5 tril-lion student loan market resigned in protest on Monday, citing what he says is the White HouseÂs open hostility toward protecting the nationÂs millions of student loan borrowers.Seth Frotman will be stepping down as student loan ombudsman at the end of the week, according to his resignation letter which was obtained by The Associated Press. He held that position since 2016, but has been with Consumer Financial Pro-tection Bureau since its inception in 2011.Frotman is the latest high-level departure from the CFPB since Mick Mulvaney, President Donald TrumpÂs budget director, took over in late November. But FrotmanÂs departure is especially noteworthy, since his non-partisan office is one of the few parts of the U.S. gov-ernment that was tasked with handling student loan issues.The office was at the center of the lawsuits against for-profit colleges like Corinthian Colleges and is currently heading up a lawsuit between the CFPB and Navient, one of the nationÂs largest student lenders. The Navient lawsuit has been mired in bureaucratic red tape as the Department of Education, headed by Betsy DeVos, has been unwilling to help the CFPB with their lawsuit Since its creation, the student loan office has returned $750 million to harmed borrowers.ÂYou have used the bureau to serve the wishes of the most powerful financial companies in America,ÂŽ Frotman wrote, addressing his letter to Mulvaney. ÂThe damage you have done to the bureau betrays these families and sacrifices the financial futures of millions of Americans in communi-ties across the country.ÂŽNationÂs top student loan o cial resigns in protest By Eric TalmadgeThe Associated PressPYONGYANG, North Korea Â„ Ostrich skin ready for tailoring, huge flat-screen TVs, ÂNeo-ViagraÂŽ and a cure for cancer?North KoreaÂs official shopperÂs guide is glossy and full of testimonials from satisfied customers and phone and email contact information for the dozens of companies pitching their latest products Â„ though good luck reaching any of them.The Â2018 Korea CommoditiesÂŽ catalog, produced by the NorthÂs Committee for the Promotion of International Trade, reflects a side of North Korea often lost in the shadow of its nuclear weapons. Leader Kim Jong Un and many other North Koreans firmly believe their country needs to make more and better consumer goods and sell them to the outside world if it is ever going to have a strong Â„ or even sustain-able Â„ economy.More goods with the Âmade in North KoreaÂŽ label are available than ever before, though inter-national sanctions mean most canÂt be sold abroad.A look at what North Korea sees as some of its most promising products:ENERGY DRINKS AND CHEESE-FLAVORED ESKIMO PIES Coke and other foreign brands are relatively rare and expensive in North Korea. But the O-Il General Processing Factory has tried to Â“ ll the gap. A surprising amount of shelf space in Pyongyang grocery stores, and increasingly stores elsewhere, has been taken over by sugary soft drinks, much of which is produced by O-Il and other wellknown brands. Air Koryo, the countryÂs Â” agship airline, also has its own line of drinks. O-Il, which means May Day, has 12 pages in the 207-page 2018 commodity catalog introducing its line of nine energy drinks. Two are sold in plastic bottles shaped like barbells. A happy boy is shown lifting them over his head, while a rainbow-colored list of the drinksÂ beneÂ“ ts includes the Âstimulation of growth in heightÂŽ and Âgreater spiritual exertion.ÂŽ MIRACLE CURES FOR CANCER? Traditional ÂKoryoÂŽ medicines dating to ancient times are widely used in North Korea, in part because of the scarcity of modern Western medicines, and have long been popular with Chinese tourists. North Korea sees big potential for exports. So what is it? According to the catalog, Royal Blood-Fresh is a supplement made primarily from beans thatÂs recommended for long Â” ights to help prevent or cure deep vein thrombosis.

Other well-known brands, like Achim and Pyolmuri, are pitching TVs Â„ 3D compatibility appears to be a hot extra these days Â„ along with laptops and tablets. ItÂs unclear if the products are fully produced in North Korea or just assembled and rebranded. But they do basically work.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, August 29, 2018 B3 SCHOOLS & SOCIETY CROSSWORD By Melissa Erickson More Content NowIn a time when kids seem happiest when theyÂre connected online, parents can find other ways to instill happiness. ÂHappiness for children is often found in enjoying a variety of activities,ÂŽ said licensed counselor Joshua Nickels, owner of Intuitive Strengths Family Services in Endicott, New York. ÂTechnology, used for the right purposes and in moderation, can be one activity that provides a child with happiness. Other activities, such as role-playing, running around with kids on a playground or creating a work of art from raw materials, provide children with an internal sense of accomplishment, belonging and confidence, which all lead to greater happiness.ÂŽ ÂGiving children something to care for that is dependent on them Â„ for instance, a pet or even a plant Â„ can bring sense of accomplishment and closeness to the family,ÂŽ said Kimberly Friedmutter, a life management expert. Bringing happiness into a childÂs life creates resilience and helps him better weather the storms of life, said Donna Bozzo, author of ÂFidget Busters: 50 Ways to Keep Kids Busy While You Get Things Done.ÂŽ ÂLook for simple ways to make your time together more fun. Maybe itÂs having dinner under the dining room table or starting out the day with a knock-knock joke written out in soap on the bathroom mirror, or fun five-minute science experiments at the breakfast table,ÂŽ Bozzo said. ÂUndivided attention is an effective and sincere way to help a child generate their own sense of happiness,ÂŽ said Ais Her, director of schools at Fountainhead Montessori School in Dublin, California. ÂThis could be a simple 15 minutes to have a conversation, set the table together, read a book, etc. Also, fostering whatever the child is good at, or enjoys doing, helps promote his/her sense of positive self-worth and pride of accomplishment. Even if sometimes these things are different than what the parent envisioned for their child, by providing that foundation of support, the child knows the parent is interested in helping him/her feel happy.ÂŽ Parents can model what happy looks like by showing each other love, patience, compassion and appreciation for the little things, and by processing this with their children, said licensed professional counselor Anahid Lisa Derbabian.

Highway 81 north of Prosperity CHURCHESFrom Page B5 FAITH Could we be missing the point of a renowned Bible story? A ÂDavid vs. GoliathÂŽ story is the ubiquitous name given to the story of an underdog taking on a powerful foe. I think there is some of that in that story. If you break down the matchup like a sporting event, David wouldnÂt be the favorite for many reasons, but David isnÂt purely meek and helpless. Goliath was huge and IÂm sure if the two engaged in hand to hand close combat David wouldnÂt fare very well. But David didnÂt end up in this fight by accident. No one forced him to take on the Giant of Gath. David was bringing food to his older brothers who were soldiers in the battle between Israel and the Philistines. For more than a month, Goliath had been coming into the valley between the two warring parties and challenging one of the Israelites to a one on one fight. For more than a month, they cowered from the huge man and his gleaming armor and weapons. Malcolm Gladwell, in a TED talk, tried to support the idea that Goliath wasnÂt a warrior at all but a doddering giant with double vision who could barely make it to the valley without assistance. He talks about the sword bearer like Goliath couldnÂt carry his equipment himself, but Tiger Woods doesnÂt carry his own bag at the Masters. In 1 Samuel, it seems pretty clear that Goliath made threats to the soldiers and insults to their God daily for more than a month and no one wanted any part of fighting him. Chapter 17, verse 24 says, ÂAll the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him and were much afraid.ÂŽ If Goliath were weak and infirm, why would so many soldiers be afraid? But David wasnÂt afraid. He was young, though, and his big brother got mad at him for talking to people on the front lines about the giant threatening the troops. But David wouldnÂt be denied and made his way all the way to King Saul. He told the king he would take on the giant. Saul said it was crazy because he was a young man and Goliath was a seasoned warrior. David told Saul that he wasnÂt scared. He was a shepherd. He had killed bears and lions to protect sheep. A tall guy with a spear didnÂt scare him. When I read the Bible, I donÂt read selected verses. I like the context. I want to know who wrote it, where it happened, who was there, and what is going on. I want to see the whole story. When I imagine this kid volunteering to take on the giant, he isnÂt going to grab a sword and start swinging at Goliath. Saul put his heavy armor on David, but he took it off, grabbed his staff and sling, found five smooth stones, and headed to battle in his own way. When Goliath mocked David for coming to the fight with nothing but a stick, he told the boy to come on down so he could feed his body to the wild animals and birds. DavidÂs knees didnÂt buckle. He answered the giant with similar trash talk but when he was finished with his threats, he ran at the giant, grabbed a stone, put it in the sling and flung it right between the giantÂs eyes to kill him. It would be a David vs. Goliath story if David had bare knuckle brawled with the giant and beat him up with his bare hands. David wasnÂt scared because he wasnÂt going to fight fair. He was fighting to win. When I see this scene I think of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the guy swung his sword around menacingly. ThatÂs when Jones pulled his pistol and shot his enemy where he stood. He might not have done as well in a sword fight. But with the right equipment, it was no contest. David wasnÂt picking a fight with a giant, he was using his shepherd skills to kill a Philistine the way he would kill a bear or a lion chasing his sheep. He was placed there by God and equipped for the job. If this turned into a spear throwing contest, he would have been dead. But he had a sling and five stones. Of course he had the blessing of God. I know that was a big part of it. But David was also ready to win the fight he was called to join. When God calls us to do something, we arenÂt underdogs. He equips us to handle whatever the giants throw at us. David had five stones that gave him shots before Goliath would even be in range to hurt him. But through it all, he was able to do it all because God equipped him for every fight in his life. I think that is as much of a theme of the 1 Samuel 17 story as an underdog beating a giant. WeÂre going to face a lot of giants, but if we do what we are called to do the way we have been equipped to do it, we have no reason to be afraid.
