Matt Gaetz took a big step toward a second term in Congress on Tuesday with a convincing Republican primary victory over opponents Cris Dosev and John Mills.Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, captured just more than 65,000 of the approximately 100,000 total Republican votes cast in FloridaÂs First Congressional District, which encompasses Okaloosa, Walton, Santa Rosa and Escambia counties.Dosev, who announced not too long after Gaetz defeated him and several others to win a first term in office that he would try again, received about 30,500 votes and third candidate John Mills got fewer than 5,000.ÂThis looks like a decisive victory,ÂŽ Gaetz said as the counting was being completed. ÂI'm very grateful to the voters for their confi-dence in me.ÂŽGaetz criticized Dosev for running Âan exclusively neg-ative campaign,ÂŽ and said it was his impression voters had made him pay the price."It looks like he got the result he so richly deserved," he said.Gaetz still has to face Dem-ocrat Jennifer Zimmerman to nail down the second term, but he didn't back down from comments he made two years ago when, facing another November contest, he flatly stated Democrats could not win in Northwest Florida.ÂI'm just as confident as I was in 2016 that Northwest Floridians want a conserva-tive congressman,ÂŽ he said.During his first two years in Washington, Gaetz has proven a faithful ally to Gaetz nears second termIncumbent easily beat two opponents to earn the GOP nomination for Florida's First District PONCE DE LEON -Holmes County Sheriff's Office is investigating an incident in which a Ponce de Leon High School student made repeated comments regard-ing actions he would take Âif he were an active shooter.ÂŽFollowing the incident, which took place late in the school day on Thursday, August 30, a HCSO deputy made contact with the student who admitted making the statements and said he was Âjust joking.ÂŽ The student was advised of the seriousness of his com-ments and was subsequently banned from school grounds by school administrators until all investigations by the school system could be completed, according to a release from HCSO.The student is charged with disruption of school function.Holmes County Sheriff John Tate urges parents to take time to speak with their children about the dangers of making comments about school shootings or making bomb threats.

RACEFrom Page A1By Dara KamNews Service of FloridaORLANDO Â„ A veteran U.S. senator portrayed by opponents as too old and clueless to know what heÂs doing and a 39-year-old mayor who won the love of national progressive leaders headlined a pep rally Friday in Orlando, as Democrats closed ranks behind the candidates in two of the countryÂs most closely watched general-election races.U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the surprise victor in TuesdayÂs crowded primary to replace outgoing Gov. Rick Scott, and Democratic candidates vying for slots on the Florida Cabinet gathered onstage in a packed union hall, eliciting deafening cheers as they urged unity.Nelson, whoÂs facing off against Scott in what will be the incumbentÂs toughest re-election fight since first winning the Senate seat in 2000, pumped up the crowd as he introduced Gillum, whom he said he met when Gillum was the stu-dent-body president at Florida A&M University.ÂWe knew, when we spotted him as a student college leader that he was going to develop into a great leader,ÂŽ Nelson said.While the two top-ofthe-ticket Democrats may be nearly 40 years apart in terms of age, both are trying to capitalize on dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump and his Florida acolyte, Congressman Ron DeSantis, the GOP gubernatorial candidate. DeSantis eviscerated Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam on Tuesday by nailing down the support of 56 percent of Republican primary voters.ÂI am going to be there side-by-side with Andrew, and weÂre going to take this to victory,ÂŽ said Nelson, who was headed to Washington to attend the funeral Satur-day of Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain.ÂItÂs amazing how the nation has been gripped in the recognition of a sena-tor of the other party that put service above self,ÂŽ Nelson said.Nelson was joined by Nikki Fried, who is running against Republican Matt Caldwell for agriculture commissioner; Sean Shaw, whoÂs in a matchup with Republican Ashley Moody for attorney general; Jeremy Ring, whoÂs running against state chief financial officer Jimmy Patronis; and all but one of GillumÂs primary foes.Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, who finished third in the five-way Democratic primary for governor, dubbed the 2018 gubernatorial race as pitting Âthe future versus the past,ÂŽ Âhope versus fear,ÂŽ and Âinclusion versus exclusion.ÂŽFormer Congresswoman Gwen Graham, who many insiders expected to carry the mantle for Democrats in the governorÂs race, was greeted with shouts of support as she walked onstage at FridayÂs rally.ÂI love you, too,ÂŽ she said, adding that she called Gillum on Tuesday night after it was clear he won the primary.ÂI said Andrew, now go win this damn thing,ÂŽ she said, drawing applause from the crowd.But it was Gillum, the first African-American candidate to capture a major-party nomination for governor in Florida, who wound the crowd into a near frenzy.Gillum hammered Scott and Republican leaders for not addressing climate change or raising the minimum wage and for opposing the Affordable Care Act, known as Obam-acare. He drew jeers from the crowd when mention-ing U.S. Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, widely despised by progressives for issues such as her advocacy of vouchers that allow stu-dents to receive tax dollars go attend private schools.ÂWe can change this thing, yÂall,ÂŽ said Gillum, joined onstage by his wife, R. Jai, and flanked by Nelson and the sena-torÂs family.ÂPreach!ÂŽ members of the crowd shouted more than once.Gillum won the primary after capt uring the support of liberal icons such as U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and the financial backing of billionaires Tom Steyer and George Soros.GillumÂs campaign tar-geted what the candidate called black, brown, poor and progressive voters Â„ voting blocs that often donÂt show up in mid-term primary elections in Florida Â„ as a path to the nomination.Gillum, Nelson rally support for November showdown For more news go to chipleypaper.com

** A4 Wednesday, September 5, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser OPINION ANOTHER VIEW The election is past for now and it brought disappointment to our family, but we will be spared some of the political ads that have bombarded us via television and telephone. I particularly hate the fact that the president of the U.S. hijacked one of the races. The bombardment isnÂt over though. One day following the primary voting I have had at least one survey trying to determine for whom I voted or will vote. I am ready to leave that behind for now and focus on upcoming events here in our county, the Holmes County Outdoor Expo on Sept 7 and 8, the Day of Service to spruce up downtown and Memorial Field, and the Rodeo with its two parades.The Holmes County Outdoor Expo sponsored by UF IFAS Extension Service under the direction of Kalyn Waters will hold its second annual event on Sept 7 and 8. The Friday event is added to last yearÂs one day event and will begin at 3:00 p.m. on Friday Sept 7 with all vendor booths open and a concert by Clay Brooker from Gainesville, Fl starting at 6:00 p.m. Saturday the Expo opens at 9:00 a.m. and runs throughout the day until 3:00 p.m.Last yearÂs event featured numerous outdoor educational exhibits, crafts, and demonstrations and this yearÂs event will have even more vendors, 40 in all. In addition, door prizes will be given throughout the day. Your $8.00 2 day pass or your $5.00 one day pass entitles you to enter the drawing for a Canyon Cooler. A special feature sponsored by the Northwest Florida Turkey Federation is a turkey calling contest for members of the federation. Memberships will be available there. Registration for that is at 8:00 A.M. on Saturday with the contest at 9:00 A.M. In addition pony rides and other games for the kids will be available.So that all exhibits will be in one area, the 2018 event will be held in the Extension barn to the south of the Agri center. There will be plenty of free parking and food and drinks will be available for purchase. The event was well attended last year and it is expected that this yearÂs event will be even bigger and better. Tison Blueberries will be there this year with jellies and honey. I donÂt have a list of concessioners but you may find out by calling the extension office at 850 547 1108. To see a drone footage of the layout of the expo, you may also get the web page address from the same number.While recovering from the Outdoor EXpo, we will be looking forward to a big turn-out for Bonifay Day of Volunteering Sept 15 to clean up and spruce up the downtown, the 3 parks within the city, and Memorial Field. WeÂd like to see some football players and cheerleaders show up to work. Quarterback Club members and elected officials should also come. Former beauty queens and homecoming queens would also be welcome. Little Misses who have grown up and are now old enough to help should come. 4-H and FFA groups ought to be there along with Boy and Girl Scout and other youth groups including church groups. The list is endless. Registration is at 8:00 a.m.on Sat, Sept 15 at the Rec Center for the morning session. Lunch is from 12 to one and is provided by the Kiwanis Club for all those who work, morning or afternoon.If you have a pressure washer and will use it, show up. We want the flower pots pressure washed before planting them with blooming plants. If you can paint horses, saddles, roping. Come decorate the downtown.I remember when I was teaching, my club of middle schoolers sold drinks on the sidewalk. We set up in front of Gulf Power which was located in one of those roofless shells of a building on Waukesha St. I am sure they will come back as adults and pitch in to do their part.Th en, when the marching bands come and the ROTC units and all the police and emergency vehicles sound off as the parade begins, we can be proud of the way of our little town looks. Who knows what will happen as a result of a cleaned up down town.Come October 4, 5, and 6 we can be proud of our gleaming city as many visitors come for the biggest display of horse flesh anywhere around. Perhaps some good Samaritans will bring garbage bags to the rodeo parade and invite visitors to place their drink cans and peanut hulls in a bag to be picked up by work crews. I am getting enthused, are you. Let's make it happen. There is plenty to look forward to in Bonifay in September and Oc tober.HAPPY CORNERSeptember brings many outdoor activities The Times-Advertiser is published on Wednesdays by GateHouse Media LLC at 112 E.

John McCain wrote this farewell message to the nation he served for most of his life. Today, we offer our editorial space for him to speak his mind one more time. My fellow Americans, whom I have gratefully served for 60 years, and especially my fellow Arizonans, Thank you for the privilege of serving you and for the rewarding life that service in uniform and in public office has allowed me to lead. I have tried to serve our country honorably. I have made mistakes, but I hope my love for America will be weighed favorably against them. I have often observed that I am the luckiest person on earth. I feel that way even now as I prepare for the end of my life. I have loved my life Â„ all of it. I have had experiences, adventures and friendships enough for 10 satisfying lives, and I am so thankful. Like most people, I have regrets. But I would not trade a day of my life, in good or bad times, for the best day of anyone elseÂs. I owe that satisfaction to the love of my family. No man ever had a more loving wife, or children, he was prouder of than I am of mine. And I owe it to America. To be connected to AmericaÂs causes Â„ liberty, equal justice, respect for the dignity of all people Â„ brings happiness more sublime than lifeÂs fleeting pleasures. Our identities and sense of worth are not circumscribed but enlarged by serving good causes bigger than ourselves. "Fellow Americans" Â„ that association has meant more to me than any other. I lived and died a proud American. We are citizens of the worldÂs greatest republic, a nation of ideals, not blood and soil. We are blessed and are a blessing to humanity when we uphold and advance those ideals at home and in the world. We have helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history. We have acquired great wealth and power in the process. We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been. We are 325 million opinionated, vociferous individuals. We argue and compete and sometimes even vilify each other in our raucous public debates, but we have always had so much more in common with each other than in disagreement. If only we remember that and give each other the benefit of the presumption that we all love our country, we will get through these challenging times. We will come through them stronger than before. We always do. Do not despair of our present difficulties, but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here. Americans never quit. We never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history. Farewell, fellow Americans. God bless you, and God bless America. A funeral service for McCain was held August 22 in Arizona, and he laid in state in the Capitol on what would have been his 82nd birthday. He lay in state in the U.S. Capitol on Friday, and was buried Sunday in a private ceremony in Annapolis.PatriotÂs farewell, in his own words James Madison wrote that the Âaccumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary in the same hands ... may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.ÂŽ James Madison wrote that the Âaccumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary in the same hands ... may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.ÂŽ In America we have three separate but co-equal branches of government Â„ executive, legislative and judicial. The founding fathers created a system of checks and balances that require a certain level of mutual respect. The judicial branch must be independent and not be influenced by bias or politics. To suggest otherwise undermines the courtÂs independence. Unfortunately, the courts are under attack in this country. In June 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump said that U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel of the Southern District of California could not be impartial when deciding the highly contested future of Trump University because of his ÂMexican heritage.ÂŽ His vitriol toward the judiciary has been nonstop ever since. Charles Geyh, an Indiana University law professor and expert on judicial conduct and ethics, told the Washington Post that such bravado is sending a dangerous message, ÂAs the leader of the free world, I should be able to do what I choose. The court shouldnÂt be able to get involved.ÂŽ Geyh said TrumpÂs attitude shows a lack of understanding of the equal roles of the three branches of government, specifically of the judiciaryÂs job to serve as a check on the executive branch. Such attacks upon judges and judicial decisions undermines the legitimacy of the courts. The attacks are not limited to Trump. Recently, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf asked the stateÂs Judicial Conduct Board to review a decision by a county judge who let a father have unsupervised visits with his child before the father beat the child to death and killed himself. The childÂs relatives are calling for the judgeÂs removal, and have a petition with 37,000 signatures to bolster their efforts. Not unlike the successful effort of Californians who voted to recall the judge who sentenced a former Stanford University swimmer convicted of sexual assault. Santa Clara County, California Judge Aaron Persky was removed from office after he sentenced Brock Turner to six months in jail, after prosecutors argued for a 7-year prison sentence, for sexually assaulting a young woman on campus.A call to preserve judicial independence Matthew Mangino Hazel Tison

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 A7 LOCAL & STATESarasota Herald-TribunePresident Donald TrumpÂs endorsement lifted U.S. Rep. Ron DeSan-tis to victory in FloridaÂs Republican primary for governor Tuesday and abruptly halted the long rise of Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, for years a darling of the stateÂs GOP establishment.DeSantis rewrote the political playbook in Florida with his win, beating a candidate who raised considerably more money andexecuted a textbook campaign centered around extensive television adver-tising, cultivating strong support among GOP leaders across the state and employing superior grass-roots organizing. PutnamÂs campaign knocked on more than400,000 doors andthe candidate held more than200 public events.All of that proved fruitless in the face of TrumpÂs endorsement, which helped pluck DeSantis from relative obscurity and propel him into the frontrunner spot in the GOP race. DeSantis was quickto offerthe president hisgrati-tudeduring avictory speech at the Rosen Shingle Creek hotel in Orlando.ÂI want to thank him for his support and for trusting me to lead Florida,ÂŽ DeSan-tis said of Trump.With Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum Â„ an outspoken liberal who was endorsed by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and hascalled for TrumpÂs impeachment Â„ winning the Democratic primary for governor, the nomination of DeSantis sets up a match up ofpolar political opposites that is sure to excite both parties bases and offer voters a clear choice in November. Both Gillum and DeSantis are disruptive, anti-establishment candidates.In toppling the Putnam political machine, DeSantis continues a string of victories by outsider GOP candidates that dates back to Gov. Rick ScottÂs primary win in 2010 and continued in 2016 with TrumpÂs victory over U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio in FloridaÂs presiden-tial primary.DeSantis is a member of the House Freedom Caucus, the far right group of lawmakers who have been wielding increasing influence as the GOP moves further to the right. He attacked Putnam from the right on issues such as immigration and education reform while also making environmental protection a key issue in the race, an unusual twist in a GOP primary.With algae blooms devastating waterfront communities on both coasts, DeSantis hammered Putnam for being too closely tied to the sugar industry, which is regularly blamed for contributing to excess nutrient levels that fuel algae growth.On immigration, Putnam proved vulnerable in a party that has moved sharply toward stronger immigra-tion enforcement efforts in recent years. DeSantis criticized Putnam for sup-porting the so-called Gang of Eight immigration bill a few years ago that offered a pathway to citizenship for some undocumented immigrants, deriding him as ÂAmnesty Adam.ÂŽA series of controversies at the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services also weighed down PutnamÂs campaign, most notablythe handling of con-cealed weapons licenses.News reports highlighted problems Â„ documented in a lawsuit and state investigations Â„ with how PutnamÂs office processed the licenses, including a lapse that let almost 300 people improperly obtain concealed carry permits and complaints that the depart-ment was unprepared to handle a flood of license requests.But TrumpÂs endorsement was the biggest factor in swinging the race to DeSantis.Lido Key resident Marlena Randanne de Vazeille said Tuesday that she voted for DeSantis Âbecause Trump suggested it.ÂŽ Her husband, Jacques Randanne de Vazeille, said he trusts TrumpÂs judgment.ÂWhat I like, and IÂll be very honest with you, is that I have finally somebody who listens to what I want and not what the government wants,ÂŽ said Jacques Randanne de Vazeille.Polls showed Putnam comfortably ahead in the race before Trump tweeted his full endorsement of DeSantis on June 22.ÂRon is strong on Bor-ders, tough on Crime & big on Cutting Taxes Â„ Loves our Military & our Vets. He will be a Great Governor & has my full Endorsement!ÂŽ Trump tweeted.The president flew to Tampa on July 31 Â„ PutnamÂs birthday Â„ to tout DeSantis during a rally at the Florida State Fair-grounds. By then DeSantis, a three-term congressman from Northeast Florida, had begun to eclipse Putnam in the polls.Recent surveys seemed to indicate the race was tight-ening and that Putnam was within striking distance, but DeSantis ended up winning by a comfortable margin.Trump drove home his support for DeSantis with a robocall to voters during the weekend and two tweets touting the candi-date Monday.The presidentÂs involve-ment in the race bedeviled Putnam, who struggled to minimize the endorsement without criticizing Trump, who is hugely popular with GOP voters.ÂMy opponentÂs running on an endorsement,ÂŽ Putnam said during a recent event in Bradenton. ÂNo plan, no vision, no agenda Â„ just an endorsement. Just hanging on to the coattails. It takes more than that to lead the state of Florida.ÂŽYet while Trump gave DeSantis, 39, a huge boost, the congressman also benefited from frequent appearances on Fox News, where he defended Trump and advocated hardline conservative positions.And DeSantisÂ background proved appeal-ing to conservatives once they began to learn more about him.A graduate of Yale and Harvard Law School, DeSantis served in theU.S. NavyÂs Judge Advocate General Corps and has been a committed conservative in Congress.Meanwhile, Putnam, 43,has held elected office continuously since he was 22, first as a member of the Florida House before heading to Congress and winning the agriculture commissioner job in 2010.After returning to Florida, Putnam was viewed as almost certain to run for governor someday and he began sowing up support in every part of the state. Affa-ble and well-liked within the party, Putnam seemed like a good bet to secure the GOP nomination for gover-nor this year.TrumpÂs involvement in the race upset many Republicans who viewed Putnam as better prepared to be governor and better positioned to win a general election.SomeRepublicans worry that DeSantis could have a hard time winning the general election because he is so conservative, and so closely associated with Trump Â„ an extremely polarizing figure. Democrats welcomed the chance to face him in the general election.ÂFor months, Adam Putnam and Florida Republicans have attacked DeSantis for having Âno plan, no vision, no agenda, no knowledge, no working knowledge of our state.Â They were right,ÂŽ Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo said in a statement, adding: ÂDeSantis has shown zero interest in Florida and instead spent this campaign courting Donald Trump, Fox News celebrities and o ut-of-state billionaires.ÂŽDeSantis rides Trump endorsement to victory in GOP primary

Last week Wells Fargo shut down Fried's campaign account after she had "funds received from lobbyists from the medical marijuana industry."Fried, Caldwell advance in agriculture commission raceNews Service of FloridaState Rep. Matt Caldwell, who topped three opponents in TuesdayÂs Republican primary for agriculture commissioner, won 43 of the stateÂs 67 counties, including his home county of Lee and urban centers of Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, Broward and Orange counties. Caldwell, a real-estate appraiser from North Fort Myers, received 34.6 percent of the 1.5 million votes cast statewide in the primary, enough for a nearly 8 percentage-point victory. In a review of county-by-county num-bers, Caldwell also won in Volusia County, swept the Treasure Coast counties of Indian River, Martin and St. Lucie and carried numerous rural counties across the northern part of the state, according to figures posted by the state Division of Elections. Caldwell also finished second in 18 other counties, including Escambia, Duval and Hillsborough. State Sen. Denise Grimsley, a Sebring Republican who finished second Tuesday with 26.63 percent of the vote, was the top vote-getter in nine counties: Glades, Calhoun, DeSoto, Hendry, Gulf, Okeechobee, Hardee, Highlands and Bay. Former state Rep. Baxter Troutman, who heavily self-financed his campaign and finished just behind Grimsley in the statewide vote with 26 percent, won in 15 counties, including Pinellas, Hillsborough, Duval and Polk. But Troutman, a business-man from Winter Haven, placed second in just 10 counties, including Lee, Collier and Santa Rosa. Grimsley took second in 39 counties, including Miami-Dade, Pinellas, Brevard, Orlando, Palm Beach, Broward, Polk, Volusia, Marion, Sarasota and Seminole. Mike McCalister, a palm-tree farmer and retired Army colonel from Plant City who mustered 12.77 percent of the vote, had his best showings, finishing in third place, in 31 counties, including Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, Broward, Sumter and St. Lucie. In the Democratic primary Tuesday for agriculture commissioner, attorney and medical marijuana lobbyist Nikki Fried won all but one county Â„ Dixie Â„ as she received 58.65 percent of the 1.4 million votes cast in a threeway contest. Roy David Walker, an environmental scientist from Fort Lauderdale who finished second with 25.5 percent of the vote, topped Fried by 16 votes in Dixie, where 856 votes were cast. Walker finished second in all but nine counties.

Sean Shaw won his primary over Tampa attorney Ryan Tor-rens, while former judge and prosecutor Ashley Moody won the GOP nomination.Both primaries were par-ticularly nasty Â„ and there almost wasn't a Democratic primary. Democratic state Rep. Sean Shaw has more money and establishment support, but he filed a law-suit to get Torrens off the ballot. Torrens responded by suing Shaw for libel. Just four days before the primary, a judge agreed that Torrens used an illegal donation to pay the qualify-ing fee to get on the ballot, and ruled that no votes for him should be counted. But an appeals judge put a stay on the decision on Monday, keeping Torrens' campaign alive. On the Republican side, auto-dealer lawyer and state Rep.

Who could be this yearÂs surprise Brickyard winner? GODSPEAK: Daniel Suarez is my pick to upend the NASCAR apple cart at Indianapolis. KENÂS CALL: Jamie McMurray showed some life at Darlington and heÂs racing for his future ... but IÂll say Paul Menard. HeÂs done it before.Jimmie Johnson suggests he can do well if he just makes sure heÂs in the playoffs. Believe him?

Three cautionsThree quick yellow Â” ags, sandwiched into Laps 312 to 344, determined the outcome of the Southern 500. Keselowski should send Jeffrey Earnhardt (Dale Jr.Âs nephew) a thank-you note for spinning on Lap 344 and bringing out the Â“ nal and decisive caution period and restart.3. 11th-hour sponsorRichard Petty Motorsports started slapping STP decals on the No. 43 Sunday morning after STP decided to sponsor the car in an 11th-hour agreement with ÂThe King.ÂŽ Petty and STP struck their Â“ rst sponsorship deal in 1972 and have enjoyed a fruitful relationship.Â„ Godwin Kelly, godwin. email@example.comBrad Keselowski led only 24 laps to Kyle LarsonÂs 284 but got to Victory Lane thanks to a series of quick laterace caution periods. [AP/TERRY RENNA] 1. One and doneThe 26-race NASCAR Cup Series regular season comes to a conclusion with the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday and there could be a surprise ending. There is a mathematical chance that seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson wonÂt make the playoffs. ÂI donÂt want to be in this position,ÂŽ Johnson said. ÂWe have been around this spot for a while. We have seen it coming.ÂŽ2. The Indy OpenThere are only two playoff spots left in the 16-driver Â“ eld. If Johnson crashed out early at Indy, it could mean big trouble. ÂItÂs just about cleaning things up,ÂŽ Johnson said at Darlington. ÂI didnÂt have a great lap in that second round of qualifying that put us back. Unfortunately, we had a loose wheel; and then I missed the commitment line coming in. WeÂve just got to clean those things up.ÂŽ3. Plates, anyone?The Indianapolis XÂ“ nity Series race saw a sizeable competition jump from 2016 to 2017 after NASCAR ordered the stock cars outÂ“ tted with restrictor plates. In 2016 there were two lead changes. Running with plates last year the race produced 16 lead changes. The plates were used in the Cup Series for the All-Star Race with great success. Connecting the dots Â„ the 2019 Indy Cup Series race may become a plate race.Â„ Godwin Kelly, godwin.kelly@ news-jrnl.comIf everything goes terribly wrong at Indianapolis, Jimmie Johnson (right) might become just a cheerleader for Chase Elliott (left) in the NASCAR playoffs. Johnson has made every playoff Â“ eld since 2004. [AP/RALPH FRESO]

A year earlier, Crazy Horse was among the Sioux leaders who defeated George Armstrong CusterÂs Sev-enth Cavalry at the Battle of Little Bighorn in Mon-tana Territory.

RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY The Holmes County Council on Aging recently went through a change of administration but are looking to the future and the way ahead. Due to alleged misappropriations of funds by former Executive Director Amber Wing and Chief Financial Officer Ginny Cooper, the Board of Directors have placed protocols to ensure no repeat of the situation will happen again. The new Executive Director Michael Brown says they owe a debt of gratitude to the Board because they have allowed the organization to continue to do what it is meant to do. ÂOur new board and new President Donna Meldon has allowed us to continue to take care of people,ÂŽ said Brown. ÂThat is what this organization is meant to do and we owe the board a debt of gratitude for enabling us to continue to do just that.ÂŽ New partnerships have been formed with Feeding the Gulf Coast where clients who are 60 or older and receive TANG, SNAP or Medicaid, or have an income less than 130-percent of the federal poverty level are eligible to receive a box that contains items such as pasta, cereals, bottled juices, canned meats, fruits, and vegetables, cheese, peanut butter, and shelf-stable and instant dry milk. Florida FarmersÂ Market Nutrition Program has also partnered with HCOA by handing out $40 in certificates each month for seniors to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets. This way encourages people to also shop local and support small businesses. Once a month, Judy Corbus from UF IFAS Extension Office holds a nutrition class to teach about healthy eating habits and how they can positively affect ones health. Brown says these programs help to emphasize that aging doesnÂt mean dying. ÂJust because someone is getting older, it doesnÂt mean their life is over,ÂŽ said Brown. ÂIt just means another chapter of life has begun.ÂŽ For more information contact 850-547-2345.HCCOA and the way aheadHCCOA Seniors Bingo is just one of the activities that are enjoyed at HCCOA.

BUSINESSBy Barbara OrtutayThe Associated PressNEW YORK Â„ When Stephen Dennis was raising his two sons in the 1980s, he never heard the phrase Âscreen time,ÂŽ nor did he worry much about the hours his kids spent with technology. When he bought an Apple II Plus computer, he considered it an investment in their future and encouraged them to use it as much as possible.Boy, have things changed with his grandkids and their phones and their Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter.ÂIt almost seems like an addiction,ÂŽ said Dennis, a retired homebuilder who lives in Bellevue, Washington. ÂIn the old days you had a computer and you had a TV and you had a phone but none of them were linked to the outside world but the phone. You didnÂt have this omnipresence of technology.ÂŽTodayÂs grandparents may have fond memories of the Âgood old days,ÂŽ but history tells us that adults have wor-ried about their kidsÂ fascination with new-fangled entertainment and technology since the days of dime novels, radio, the first comic books and rock nÂ roll. ÂThis whole idea that we even worry about what kids are doing is pretty much a 20th century thing,ÂŽ said Katie Foss, a media studies professor at Middle Tennessee State University. But when it comes to screen time, she added, Âall we are doing is reinventing the same concern we were having back in the Â50s.ÂŽTrue, the anxieties these days seem particularly acute Â„ as, of course, they always have. Smartphones have a highly cus-tomized, 24/7 presence in our lives that feeds parental fears of antisocial behavior and stranger danger.What hasnÂt changed, though, is a general parental dread of what kids are doing out of sight. In previous generations, this often meant kids wandering around on their own or sneak-ing out at night to drink. These days, it might mean hiding in their bedroom, chatting with strangers online.Less than a century ago, the radio sparked similar fears. In the early 1930s a group of mothers from Scarsdale, New York, pushed radio broadcasters to change programs they thought were too Âoverstimulating, frightening and emotionally overwhelmingÂŽ for kids, said Margaret Cassidy, a media historian at Adelphi University in New York who authored a chronicle of Ameri-can kids and media. Then television burst into the public consciousness with unrivaled speed. By 1955, more than half of all U.S. homes had a black and white set, according to Mitchell Stephens, a media his-torian at New York University.The hand-wringing started almost as quickly. A 1961 Stanford University study on 6,000 children, 2,000 parents and 100 teachers found that more than half of the kids studied watched ÂadultÂŽ programs such as West-erns, crime shows and shows that featured Âemotional prob-lems.ÂŽ Researchers were aghast at the TV violence present even in childrenÂs programming. Video games presented a dif-ferent challenge. Decades of study have failed to validate the most prevalent fear, that violent games encourage violent behavior. But from the moment the games emerged as a cultural force in the early 1980s, parents fretted about the way kids could lose themselves in games as simple and repetitive as ÂPac-Man,ÂŽ ÂAsteroidsÂŽ and ÂSpace Invaders.ÂŽ Initially, the internet Â„ touted as an Âinformation superhighwayÂŽ that could connect kids to the worldÂs knowledge Â„ got a similar pass for helping with homework and research. Yet as the internet began linking people together, often in ways that connected previously iso-lated people, familiar concerns soon resurfaced.Sheila Azzara, a grandmother of 12 in Fallbrook, California, remembers learning about AOL chatrooms in the early 1990s and finding them Âkind of a hostile place.ÂŽ Teens with more permissive parents who came of age in the Â90s might remem-ber these chatrooms as places a 17-year-old girl could pretend to be a 40-year-old man (and vice versa), and talk about sex, drugs and rock ÂnÂ roll (or more mundane topics such as current events). By Jeffery MarinoZipRecruiter.comAs the labor market continues to contract, employers everywhere are having a tough time finding the talent they need, even in some of the most desirable beachside cities in America. Lots of people want to live on the coast, which is perhaps one reason why the median home price in San Francisco is currently pushing $1.4 million. Though San Francisco is an extreme example, the cost of living by any beach is certainly a barrier to entry, and that barrier is typically relative to the quality of the local job market. The median household income in San Francisco, for instance, is more than $100,000 a year, which is why people are able to sustain living in one of AmericaÂs most expensive cities. Based on data from the ZipRecruiter Job Market Index Â„ which calculates the level of job opportunity, median income, housing affordability, public health and access to public transit Â„ the ability to live and thrive in a beach town is becoming more accessible to workers who were once limited to mere California dreaminÂ. The West Coast dominates our list of the best beachside job markets, with only Jacksonville, North Carolina, and Bangor, Maine, representing the Eastern Seaboard. San Francisco ranked highest in the index for beachside job markets and has one of the most favorable job-to-applicant ratios among all of the coastal markets featured. Opportunity is even higher on CaliforniaÂs Central Coast, where there are three jobs for every applicant and competition is lowest within the well-paying health care and technology industries. One caveat to keep in mind, and something employers in these communities ought to heed, is that labor shortages in the top California markets may be the result of migratory patterns. According to the Census BureauÂs latest estimates, California had a net migration loss of about 1,000,000 residents from 2007 to 2016. Many residents left California during the recession and ensuing recovery as the cost of living continued to increase and wages remained stagnant. As of June, California was the only state on this list where wages grew at a slower pace than the national average. However, the state governmentÂs move to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2022, and the fact that competition for talent has risen greatly, should cause wages to start growing again.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 B3 SCHOOLS & SOCIETYBy Melissa EricksonGearing up for a great year? A key factor in school success is making smart and healthy choices a habit in the household, said Dr. Mary Gavin, a pediatrician and senior medical editor at KidsHealth.org. She recommends a routine each day that includes time for: Â€ A healthy breakfast. Â€ Physical activity and exercise after school, so that kids have a chance to let off steam before settling down to do homework. Â€ Homework. Â€ A regular bedtime that allows for enough sleep depending on a childÂs age and needs. Plan meals ahead The change in schedule doesnÂt just affect kids. ÂPlanning ahead is really the key to getting meals on the table during the busy backto-school season,ÂŽ Gavin said. ÂPlan your meals before the start of the week so that you know whatÂs for dinner each night. Grocery-shop for everything on your list the weekend before.ÂŽ Prepping food on the weekend can help save time during the busy week. ÂWash salad greens and cut up veggies and fruit. Store healthy snacks or lunch items like cheese and crackers in small containers or individual baggies so that all the kids have to do is grab and go,ÂŽ Gavin said. Communicate with teachers ÂA parent is a childÂs best advocate. So itÂs important for parents to meet with teachers at the beginning of the school year to share important information about their child,ÂŽ Gavin said. ÂTell teachers about any health problems, food allergies or special needs that your child has Â„ especially those that may affect learning.ÂŽ If your child needs special accommodations, parents should set those up for a child ahead of time. ÂFor example, some kids with vision problems need to sit closer to the chalkboard, others may need more time for tests. If your child needs accommodations such as these, you may need to request a 504 Plan. If your child is struggling in school, talk to your teacher about an educational evaluation,ÂŽ Gavin said. Parents can work with educators to design customized 504 educational plans that legally ensure students with physical or mental impairments are treated fairly at school. If you need help explaining a childÂs situation, KidsHealth. org has Special Needs Factsheets for educators that explain how certain health problems may affect learning. ÂThese are great for parents to give to teachers. We have many health conditions including asthma, diabetes, ADHD, food allergies,ÂŽ Gavin said. Visit kidshealth.org/en/ parents/classroom/factsheet. ÂShare anything about your childÂs personality that you think would be helpful to know, such as your childÂs preferred learning style, individual strengths or challenges. Also, ask the teacher about expectations for the class so that you can support and reinforce those messages at home,ÂŽ Gavin said. Immunize on time Children entering kindergarten need to have their immunizations up to date to begin school while older kids whoÂve missed any vaccines should get them before school starts, Gavin said. ÂIf your child has an ongoing health problem like asthma, be sure to get all prescription medicines refilled before school starts. If any medicines or devices like an inhaler need to be taken at school or remain with your child during school hours, get a doctorÂs note. Make sure the school nurse or anyone else who might be giving medicines or administering an inhaler or EpiPen knows how to use it,ÂŽ Gavin said.Healthy habits for a great school yearÂTrivia FunÂŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

I forget that the rest and the process is part of GodÂs plan. Our new state is awesome. We have lived in many states, and we have passed through even more... yet Colorado my be my new favorite. Everywhere we turn, GodÂs wonders catch my breath. The rolling fields of wheat and corn. The animals that graze, grow and birth all in the same acreage. The plains that gently slope so that you canÂt see over the next one. Facing one way, you get the calm, sturdy push that each day is another day towards the next season. The farmers, the dairy farmers, and the people who live off the land and race against that burning clock. The other direction brings cities that stretch as far as the eye can see but standing, oh so tall above them, is the Rocky Mountains. The hustle and bustle of one direction is far different than that of the other. In the valleys below those majestic mountains lie every store selling every good and service you can imagine. Vegan? Got you covered. Pescatarian? Not a problem at all. Liberal? Have a seat. Personally being gluten-free for the past 10 years has found me with a new goal. IÂm eating my way through the entire downtown area under those Rockies. Date night found us at Jax and they has so many GF dishes, I could cry. I had the mussels to start, followed by the shrimp and grits then the truffle fries and finally a flourless cake. ItÂs far to say, that my better half rolled me out of that establishment and into the car. We will be going back. Fact. Each little town and city is connected by the farm roads. Those twoways roads where the speed limit is 55 and all the corners have signs that broadcast ÂTrucks entering road.ÂŽ You can move from one little town to the next in nine minutes... unless you drive like a granny. As IÂve settled into our new place (weÂve been here officially a month now), IÂm learning where all the good stuff is. IÂve also learned that just because I can go to 47 stores and buy stuff, doesnÂt mean I need to. Living in the wilds of North Dakota where things werenÂt so available has helped me to really separate what is a need from what is a want. So I set up our new house and I have ignored the little pokes... Âwe need new stuff,ÂŽ Âlets see whatÂs on sale,ÂŽ Âoh look Hobby Lobby,ÂŽ and instead focused on the really important things. Getting us settled into our community where we can make a difference. That part is still evolving but IÂll keep you up to date. The job hunt has been the biggest little minion on my shoulder. Yes, I just left an amazing day job and yes, I should be actively hunting for the next one. But IÂm not. I look every couple days and I apply for the ones that spark an interest in my heart. IÂve been on an interview in which thankfully the Lord made VERY CLEAR that job wasnÂt for me. IÂve come to realize through some mentors who have spoken into my heart and readings in the Bible that I may be in a given time of rest. Philippians 4 tells us ÂDo not be anxious about anything but in every situation by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Jesus Christ.ÂŽ The Father has given me a period of rest. Rest in which to settle my family, attend to all the needs of a relocation, and to center myself into our new community. He knows my heart and he knows my desire to serve. I will have faith in him that once my time of rest is over, the right job will come along. The job that allows me to benefit my family and serve them first. A time to rest.Waiting on the now Everyone loves a winner. Or hates a winner. It depends how he or she won. Ashley Thomas, a researcher in cognitive development at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard, has found that even very young children have a predilection for winners. When she was a graduate student at University of California, Irvine, Thomas devised a way to determine whether children, ages 21 months to 31 months, would show a preference for highor lowranking individuals. In a series of seven experiments, the toddlers watched a puppet show featuring two nondescript puppets (one a red rectangle, the other a yellow oval, each with an eye and a straight line for a mouth) trying to cross the stage but getting in each otherÂs way. In each case, one of the puppets yielded to the other, granting it the right of way. At the conclusion of the puppet show, the 23 toddlers who participated were given the opportunity to reach for one of the puppets. Twenty chose the puppet who Âwon.ÂŽ By repeating the experiment so that each of the puppets won, and by using different obstacles to be circumvented, Thomas was able to show that toddlers expressed an overwhelming preference for the winner, whichever puppet that might be. However, when the successful puppet achieved its goal by violence Â„ knocking the other puppet down Â„ the children overwhelmingly preferred the losing puppet. The results seem conclusive: Even very young children prefer high-status individuals (winners) to low-status individuals (losers) as long as the winner achieved his high-status fairly. This preference for winners seems to be built right into human nature. Advertisers appeal to this instinctive preference for winners. It is no accident the actors who sell us everything from cars to personal care items and cleaning supplies are presented as winners. TheyÂre attractive, possess markers of affluence (expensive clothes, jewelry, and cars) and are often surrounded by lower-status admirers. The hidden appeal is: Buy our product and you too can be a winner. People not only love winners, they love to celebrate winners. Writers understand this dynamic and employ it to create an emotional response in their readers. The Star Trek franchise wrote a standing ovation for their lead characters into the ending of Star Trek IV. It was apparently so popular with audiences that they did so in subsequent movies again and again. People love to celebrate winners. So, from a theological perspective, why does the Church not celebrate JesusÂs victory more frequently and with more gusto? Why are there so few standing ovations for the Son of God? The Dante scholar and popular novelist Dorothy Sayers rightly complained of Christians who Âmuffle up that shattering personality and surround him with an atmosphere of tedium. We have efficiently pared the claws of the Lion of Judah, certified him Âmeek and mildÂ and recommended him as a fitting household pet for pale curates and pious old ladies.ÂŽ Not even toddlers will show a preference for that nondescript imitation of Jesus. The New Testament portrays him in a very different light. He is Âthe Captain of Salvation,ÂŽ the Âpioneer of the faith,ÂŽ Âthe Glorious Savior,ÂŽ ÂKing of kings and Lord of lords.ÂŽ He is Âthe Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the EndÂŽ and the ÂSavior of the world,ÂŽ who has been given Âthe name above all names.ÂŽ The Book of Revelation celebrates his victory. Chapter five even features a Star Trek-like standing ovation Â„ on steroids. Angels and heavenly authorities sing his praises, and every creature across the universe responds with exuberant praise. Upon his victory, in chapter 19, another roar of praise goes up, and continues on and on. It booms like Niagara, explodes like peals of thunder. The armies of heaven are seen following Jesus, and he is declared ÂKing of Kings and Lord of Lords.ÂŽ Here is a hero of the highest order, the ultimate victor. And he comes to this place not by violence but through personal sacrifice. He is worthy of Âpraise and honor and glory and power,ÂŽ because he has earned this homage as the ÂLamb who was slain,ÂŽ rather than the bully who got his way. He is not a fitting household pet for pious old ladies, but the hero of the Church and the Savior of the World.Everyone loves a winner S h a n e L o o p e r Shane Looper A U.S. federal appeals court recently ruled that the ÂIn God We TrustÂŽ inscription found on the nationÂs currency doesnÂt violate the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a lawsuit by 27 atheists and two atheist organizations, which had argued the motto violated the ConstitutionÂs prohibition of an establishment of religion nor the guarantee of free exercise of it. The Court said the inscription didnÂt violate the Constitution because AmericaÂs founding had many examples of Âofficial acknowledgementsÂŽ of religion. Judge Raymond Grounder wrote, ÂConvenience may lead some Plaintiffs to carry cash, but nothing compels them to assert their trust in God. Certainly no Âreasonable observerÂ would think that the Government is attempting to force citizens to express trust in God with every monetary transactions.ÂŽ Â„ More Content NowSTUDY SAYSMost senior pastors very satisÂ“ ed in their calling According to a recent Barna poll, 72 percent of U.S. senior pastors said they were very satisfied with their vocational calling, and 53 percent said they are satisfied with their current church.

Help my unbelief!ÂŽ In the manÂs sincere plea, Jesus heard the tension in the manÂs battle-scarred heart. He healed not only the boy but the father too, driving out the hopelessness that had overtaken him. He can do the same for us today. As Groeschel shares his pain surrounding the current health challenges of his daughter, he acknowledges the questions we may ask in our own deepest pain: ÂWhere was God when I was being abused?ÂŽ ÂWhy was my child born with a disability?ÂŽ ÂWhy did the cancer come back?ÂŽ ÂWhy are all my friends married and IÂm alone?ÂŽ He invites us to wrestle with such questions as we ask God to honor our faith and heal our unbelief.
