RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY … Holmes County Board of County Commission-ers approved a measure to take ownership of the roads in Dog-wood Lakes when they met in regular session September 11.Ownership of the roads has been a long-standing issue with the legal owner being listed as a now defunct com-pany dating back to the 1970s. Residents of the subdivision have requested help from the county due to the extensive disrepair of the roads.County Attorney Brandon Young advised the board they could take ownership of the roads, however, should something arise, he would not be able to prove it in a court of law."You can say we have ownership, but if something happens such as an easement being needed, I cannot prove we own the roads," said Young.In order for the county to have ownership of the roads, it must maintain them for seven years. The county did however pave those roads several years ago but has not maintained them since.Commissioner Clint Erick-son believes it is a moral issue, not legal, for the county to help the residents of Dogwood Lakes."This may not be the most legal way to go about gaining ownership," said Erickson. "But I believe we have a moral obligation to help these residents."The county has already begun the process of repairing roads and cleaning up right of ways, much to the appreciation of residents."Thank you so much for helping us out there in Dog-wood Lakes," said one resident. "We would be lost if you all didnt help us."Commissioners also brought to an end another long-stand-ing issue with Ewan Moore concerning a property adjacent to Moore.Located at 1814 B Highway 79, the property in question is owned by the widow of Billy Cobb and according to Moore, is loaded with mounds of garbage that is leading to runoff into nearby Wrights Creek.The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and The Florida Department of Health have both inspected the property and stated that the county has an ordinance that covers the issue. Ordinance 97-01 allows for the county to mail a letter to the property owner requesting clean up. If the owner does not comply, the county then has the authority to go in to do the clean up and place a lien against the prop-erty for the work done.County officials said a lien will be placed on the property after an estimate is determined on how much the trash clean up with cost. Moore says he is eager to see it finished."This has been an issue for 19 months," said Moore to com-missioners. "Thank you all for your help."FDEP is levying fines of $500 a day for a broken septic tank on the property as well.A comprehensive list of county ordinances can be found at the Holmes County Clerk of Court website at the meeting, commissioners approved the tentative budget and millage rate for fiscal year 2018-2019 totaling $28,522,514 for the budget and 9.4916 for the ten-tative millage.BOCC talks roads, trash, budgetsStaff reportBONIFAY … A father and son were jailed on sus-picion of having drugs and paraphernalia Friday following the execution of a search warrant.

The largest revenue source comes from ad valorem taxes totaling $4,087,860 and the largest expenditure is the Sheriffs Office budget total-ing $3,481,102.The final budget hearing is scheduled for 5:01 p.m. on September 24.County Coordinator Joey Marsh advised the board of the progress on FEMA projects throughout the county. To date, 50 out of 62 projects have been completed in just over two years. The county has received $416,316,444.33 in FEMA funding and has spent only $6,242,859.47 repairing roads. That is a total savings of $10,073,584.According to Marsh, the county has hauled 306,000 cubic yards of dirt and 17,000 cubic yards of rock to bring 500 roads back to pre-disas-ter condition. The savings thus far will be used to pave roads that have been pri-oritized in each district. The top five roads, one for each district are as follows: Line Road, Bradley Road, Malcolm Taylor Road, Flowing Well Road and Beall Packing Road to Old Liberty School.In other business, the board tasked Marsh with entering negotiations with the Holmes County School Board for the purchase of the old Bonifay Elementary School campus for possible use as a county annex. This is not the first time the board has attempted to pur-chase the property with both attempts failing. A decision is expected to be made during the October 2 meeting.Holmes County Board of County Commissioners will meet again in regular session at 6 p.m. on September 25. BOCCFrom Page A1

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett As we work our way to the end of budget season in local government, a common phrase is being echoed through the municipal and county facilities throughout Northwest Florida: Our millage rate is among the lowest in the state.Ž And its true. Our area does have incredibly low millage rates, and because of that the general budgets of our local governments are smaller than they could be. But that may soon be a problem. If passed, Amendment 1 on the Nov. 6 ballot would increase the homestead exemption for many Florida homeowners. Its a tax break, and we all love a good tax break, so it feels likely Amendment 1 has a good shot at getting the 60 percent yesŽ vote. The exemption would not apply to school taxes, but it would apply to all of the millage rates that help to fund our city and county governments. The amendment would raise the homestead exemption from $50,000 to $75,000. To qualify for any of the additional exemption, a home needs to be assessed at $100,000 or more. To receive the full exemption, the home would need to be valued at $125,000 or more. An analysis by the Florida House of Representatives estimates the impact to non-school local government property taxes in Fiscal Year 2019-20 (the first year of implementation) will be approximately $645 million, assuming current tax rates.Ž Thats a lot of cash, and it means our local governments will have to find ways to make up that money. It likely means more proposals like the upcoming local option sales tax in Okaloosa County „ also on the November ballot. The 10-year, half-cent tax would help fund many important infrastructure projects throughout the county during the 10-year period. The additional revenues would allow Okaloosa County and its municipalities to have seed money and matching money to help get federal and state funds for infrastructure projects that are badly needed. Its a sales tax, so everyone „ including tourists „ would pay their fair share to improve Okaloosa County. But a half-cent tax wont address all of the income losses from Amendment 1. Other sources of revenue will have to be found, and „ because options for governments to bring in money are few and far between „ that likely means raising millage rates. If millage rates are raised with the new, higher exemption, the burden of the additional tax falls squarely on homeowners. Whether that means some homeowners will continue to get a tax cut from the new exemption depends on the new rate, but it does guarantee that the areas tax burden will fall on fewer people. The higher the homestead exemption, the more property that is exempt, the fewer number of people left to pay the taxes. That doesnt seem fair. This editorial originally ran in the Northwest Florida Daily News, a sister paper with GateHouse Media. Amendment 1 is all about tax money In the latest issue of The Atlantic, Rene Chun writes The third leading cause of workplace death ... is homicide.Ž The first thing that comes to mind is the disgruntled former employee who comes to the office and shoots the place up or a workplace romance gone sour. Another more sinister reason for workplace homicide is the concealment of fraud. White-collar crime is typically financially motivated, committed by business men and women bent on illicit financial gain. Whitecollar crime was coined by sociologist Edwin Sutherland in 1939 to describe a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupationŽ The justice system has, for the most part, classified white-collar criminals as non-violent, giving them lenient sentences in country clubŽ prisons. White-collar criminals are often viewed as educated, upper-classŽ workers who a made poor decisions. However, in reality whitecollar criminals are already adept at manipulation and have used deceit to exercise their criminality. White-collar criminals often have a lot at stake and may resort to violence to protect themselves and their reputationŽ in the workplace and community. Murder as a method of concealment is referred to as fraud-detection homicide. Violence is used as a means to conceal fraud through silencing the victim or witness who had detected or may be on the trail of detecting criminality. Chun wrote about Frank S. Perri, a lawyer who teaches forensic accounting at DePaul University. Perri coined the term red-collarŽ crime, in a 2015 article in the International Journal of Psychological Studies. Why would a white-collar criminal turn to murder? Perri writes, White-collar criminals thrive on being able to avoid detection in order to carry out their fraud schemes; they have the ability, like a chameleon, to adapt to a given environment.Ž The threat of detection turns the white-collar to red. Perri continues, As the threat of detection increases, so does the probability that the individual will rationalize murder as a solution to his or her problems ... red-collar criminals do not reject violence as a solution to a perceived problem, so killing is just as viable a solution as using deceptive and manipulative characteristics to satisfy their needs.ŽThe crime that can kill M a t t h e w T M a n g i n o Matthew T. ManginoWhen I was teaching, a student entering the ninth grade came to me and said,ŽI Dont want to go through highschool being a nobody. What can I do to be a somebody? I dont remember what I told her, but I do know that we had a discussion about opportunities in high school. Band was out as her religion forbad her from saluting the flag. Chorus was out because they sang the National Anthem. I hope that I stressed with her the importance of being the best student that she was capable of being and being responsible while doing any task that come her way to the very best of her ability, and completing every work that she attempted. An editorial in the News Herald on Sunday, September 9 is so spot on about being somebody that I wish with all my heart that I had written it. Connie Shulz, however, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist. I am going to borrow some of her material. There is and was when I was teaching a lot about building self-esteem in students. At one time, students who received free or reduced lunch were allowed to help clean up the cafeteria in return for their lunch. That practice was stopped a long time ago because the fear of the stigma related to those kids needing free lunch. My philosophy is and always has been that the best self-esteem builder is completing an assigned task; being given a task and completing it. It is spelled WORK. Mrs Schultz in her editorial writes about Geoffry Owens, an actor on the Cosby Show being spotted working as a check-out person in a grocery store in Clifton N.J. The lady who recognized him made his picture and the story wound up in a British Tabloid. Post after post appeared on Twitter about the downfall of Owens who played the husband of the Huxtable's Daughter Sondra. This led to other actors sharing their own make a livingŽstories between acting gigs. Owens agreed to an interview with Good Morning America where he explained how he wound up at Trader Joes check-out. He wanted a job with flexibility that would allow him to accept acting jobs that might come available. He wasnt trying to hide his work. He wasnt advertising it either because he didnt want the entertainment community to conclude that he wasnt interested in acting any more. This is what he said that I wanted to share. There is no job that is better than any other job. It might pay better. It might have better benefits. It might look better on a resume.But actually its not better. Every job is worthwhile.Ž Owens was talking about the dignity of work. The lady who leaked the photo later apologized to Owens for the picture. Shultz went on to share some words of wisdom from Martin Luther King when he was addressing the Sanitation Workers in Memphis Tenn. He said, One day, our society will respect the sanitation worker if he is to survive for the person who picks up our garbage, in the final analysis, is as significant as the physician, for if he doesnt do his job, diseases are rampant. All labor has dignity.Ž Robert Fuller, a former college president, in his book Somebodies and Nobodies: Overcoming the abuse of Rank writes that celebrities like us are nobodies in private. They have their foibles and their failures. Their lives remind us that we all have a nobody and a somebody existing within us. Geoffery Owens gently reminds that we need each other and there is no need for an apology for an honest days labor with the pay of an honest days work. Since I was teaching in the middle school, I didnt follow the student I mentioned as she progressed through high school, but with her aptitude and her attitude, I believe she became a somebody at least in her own eyes. She may have simply meant that she wanted to become a part of the inŽ group in high school. Over the years, I have observed that the socially inŽ group have been no more nor no less successful in their lives. But those who participated in school life in general have quietly made their mark in life wherever they are. All honest work is honorable, but as difficult as teaching is today, it is one of the most rewarding and the rewards continue as we daily meet former students, most of whom are not doing jobs that place them in the spotlight of publicity, but simple things that have to be done: checking us out at the grocery line, repairing our electric line, producing our fresh food, raising bees, typing our reports, teaching our children, filling our prescriptions, collecting our garbage. The list is endless. I am thankful that my husband and I have been a part of developing the work ethic of many of them.To us they have become somebodies, not nobodies.HAPPY CORNER Everybody wants to be a somebody not a nobody Hazel Tison

But it wasnt just Trump who stirred the political pot this week.Gov. Rick Scott, whos vying to oust Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, kicked into motion the process to appoint replace-ments for three Florida Supreme Court justices who will retire in January. The replacements could create a significant shift in the courts shaping of public policy for decades.Meanwhile, the states gubernatorial candidates and their supporters took to the airwaves to kick off the barrage of television ads that will inundate Flo-ridians over the next two months.A spot launched by the Republican Governors Association accused Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum of being so far outŽ hes on another planet.Ž The somewhat-odd piece „ which includes an image of Gillum superimposed over a moon „ is even more curious, since onetime astronaut Nelsons been mocked by Scott and other Republicans about the senators actual space trip.The Republican Party of Florida, meanwhile, unleashed a promo of GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis that opens with a homage to the former congressmans Dunedin team making a trip to the 1991 Little League World Series.We were only 12 when we learned to dream big, work hard and swing away,Ž the grown-up DeSantis says in the spot.Gillum, too, released an upbeat ad that focused on his childhood, echoing his campaigns #BringItHome mantra in which the Talla-hassee mayor invokes the lessons he learned from his grandmother. Shed say, go to school.

Apparently not the Los Angeles Rams.As for the Browns and Vikings, who are going with untested youngsters, well, maybe a new guy to handle field goals and extra points will be employed soon. Sure, its kind of early to panic about placekicking. The Rams showed how to not rely on placements once Greg Zuerlein went out Sunday with a groin problem. They simply scored touchdowns and then went for 2-point con-versions, making three.Still, when its early in the schedule and kickers are struggling „ there were seven missed PAT kicks Sunday afternoon „ despite generally decent conditions, thats troubling.Minnesota rookie Daniel Carlson twice went wide right on overtime field goals and the Vikings tied top NFC North rival Green Bay 29-29. Even though Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a career high with five field goals, his potential winner from 52 yards went wide left as time expired in regulation.Its rarely wise to play for field goals, particularly when you have the two highest-paid quarter-backs in the league, Aaron Rodgers and Kirk Cousins. But circumstances sometimes dictate not gambling. In Green Bays case, that pretty much paid off thanks to the veteran Crosby.Not so much for Minnesota as Carlson missed from 49 and 35 yards in OT. He also failed from 48 in the second quarter.I think I went out each time and it was a new kick,Ž said Carlson, who was pretty sure hed never miss three field goals in a game. Went out there confident, but something obviously was off and Ive got to fix that and help this team.ŽZane Gonzalez who held FBS records for career field goals made (96) and points by a kicker (494) when he left Arizona State after the 2016 season, hurt his team even more. His Browns lost „ yeah, thats hardly news as it was the 18th time in their last 19 games they flopped, and the other game was last weeks tie with Pittsburgh „ and he missed two field goals and, ugh, two extra points.He botched his first extra point after the Browns went up 12-3 in the third quarter at New Orleans. He was wide left on a 44-yard field goal that would have given them a 15-3 early in the fourth quarter. That plagued him on his final two attempts.Kicked to the curb

RobinsonTimes Advertiser | @HCTA_Diane Drobinson@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY … Pride in com-munity could be felt all around Bonifay on Septem-ber 15. An event came about when Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Rebecca Prince was looking to clean up the town in time for the annual Boni-fay Rodeo, at the same time, Wells Fargo Personal Banker and Bluewater Volunteer Board Member Donna Hoff-man was looking for an event to help with for the nation-wide Wells Fargo Community Day of Service campaign.The two were a perfect match and the start of something new for Holmes County.Volunteers came together for the First Annual Commu-nity Day of Service to clean up the town. Anywhere one looked people could be seen painting, picking up trash, mowing, pressure washing, and planting.With more than 200 volunteers spread out around downtown and city parks, clean up and improvements were deemed a huge success by event coordinators."I am blown away and humbled by the amount of people who came out," said Hoffman. "Our community has one again made me proud to be from Bonifay. Thank you to all who came and gave of their time.""I feel so blessed to be able to serve alongside so many wonderful volunteers work-ing together to make Bonifay a wonderful place to live and do business," said Prince. "I just want to thank each and every volunteer that came out Saturday."Councilman Travis Cook echoed that same sentiment. "I am in awe at the amount of people who came out to lend a hand," said Cook. "I appreciate every single person who gave up their Saturday to help clean up our town."Although everything that was on the list wasnt completed, Prince says progress was still made.The First Annual Community Day of service was a success," said Prince. "We didnt accomplish everything on the giant to do list and Memorial Field still needs some attention, but we made a dent in it."Bonifay Kiwanis Club was on hand to serve lunch to volunteers after which door prizes from various local businesses were won during a drawing. Community Day of Service saw many groups and individuals come together to improve their communities. Lowes in Defuniak Springsgraciously donated all the flowers and potting soil for the event.Prince asks that everyone remain mindful of where we live and to take a moment to "do something.""If you see trash on the ground pick it up," said Prince. "Dont leave trash in our parks there are plenty of available trash cans. If you drive by and notice the plants could use a little water, stop and water them, dont wait for someone else to do it as you watch them die wonder-ing why no one is watering them. Take ownership and a little pride in where you live and work.""Remember, community isnt a place, but a feeling," said Prince.Community Day of Service deemed a successWells Fargo volunteers put a fresh coat of paint on a building at the rec center.

** B2 Wednesday, September 19, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserFlorence likely to reveal areas of vulnerability in ood insuranceBy Ken Sweet and Meghan HoyerThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ The number of Americans with flood insurance is on the rise, yet Hurricane Florence is likely to make it painfully clear that too many homeowners in the Carolinas and other vulnerable regions remain unprotected..An analysis of federal flood insurance records by The Associated Press found there were roughly 5.1 million active flood insurance policies in the U.S. as of July 31, up from 4.94 million a year earlier.The Carolinas had modest gains „ a 2.5 per-cent increase in South Carolina and a 3.5 percent increase in North Carolina.But large gaps in coverage remain. South Carolina is the secondhighest insured state for flooding, with roughly 65 percent of properties in flood hazard areas insured. But in North Carolina, where forecast-ers say the storm might bring the most destructive round of flooding in state history, flood cover-age is less common, with only 35 percent of at-risk properties insured.After blowing ashore as a hurricane with 90 mph (145 kph) winds, Florence virtually parked itself much of the week-end atop the Carolinas as it pulled warm water from the ocean and hurled it onshore. Storm surges, flash floods and winds scattered destruction widely.Most of the gains observed in the federal flood insurance data over the past 12 months occurred in Texas, with about 145,000 new policies. Insurance experts say that Hurricane Harvey, which brought tremendous flood damage to Texas and Louisiana late last summer, helped increase public awareness that homeowners need flood insurance.Thats terrific. Nothing sells flood insurance like a storm,Ž said Robert Hunter, who ran the National Flood Insurance Program in the 1970s.Still, federal officials say there are too many Amer-icans in vulnerable areas who lack flood insur-ance „ even after storms such as Sandy, Matthew and Harvey caused wide-spread property damage and financial losses with storm surge and rainfall. A look at the five-year and 10-year trends shows a decline in the number of flood insurance policies nationwide.Property insurance typically doesnt cover flooding, and flood insur-ance remains by and large a federal government pro-gram run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA.FEMA requires most homeowners with mortgages living in certain designated areas to buy flood insurance. But there are numerous neighbor-hoods across the U.S. that are vulnerable to flooding but where insurance isnt mandatory and many residents choose not to enroll „ sometimes with dire consequences.In the five years before Hurricane Harvey walloped Houston last year, for instance, the number of homes covered in the city dropped 11 percent. The monster storm ended up flooding more than 150,000 homes in the area, leaving many people digging into their savings to repair their houses.Data show that even with the increase in flood insurance coverage over the past year, the number of homes covered is down 3 percent in North Caro-lina and 6 percent South Carolina compared with five years ago.Researchers and insur-ance experts say many Americans choose not to get flood insurance because of a belief that flooding will not happen to them, or if it does, fed-eral disaster assistance cover their losses.But federal disaster relief typically consists of lowinterest loans „ money that must be repaid. The maximum amount of disaster assistance available to an individual or household is $34,000, which is typically not enough to cover repairs caused by flooding. The average damage caused by flooding during Harvey was around $80,000, according to the Texas Department of Insurance.We have been working for the last couple years to close the insurance gap, but still not near enough people have necessary coverage. We still have a lot of work to do,Ž said David Maursted, the current director of the governments flood insurance program, in a conference call with reporters on Thursday.Because Hurricane Florence hit the Carolina coast as a less powerful Category 1 storm, damages are expected to be less severe than originally estimated. Property data company CoreLogic esti-mates the storm surge and wind from Florence will cause roughly $3 billion to $5 billion in damages.But the potential property damage in the Carolinas could once again strain the finan-cial health of the nations flood insurance program.Starting with Katrina in 2005, a series of catastrophic storms have forced the program to pay out billions of dollars more in claims than it receives in premiums. Last year, the damages from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma caused the pro-gram to reach its $30.5 billion statutory limit on borrowing.In renewing the flood insurance programs man-date last year, Congress forgave roughly $16 billion in the programs debt. But the program is still roughly $20.5 billion in the red, according to FEMA.Maursted said NFIP insurance companies are already deploying claims agents and adjusters to the area and they do not expect any delays in processing claims. Policyholders who have flood insurance should file a claim with their insurance company as soon as they feel its safe enough to do so.Exposing gaps BUSINESS WHAT TO WATCH FOR TODAY€ FedEx Corp. reports quarterly “ nancial results after the market closes Rescue personnel use a small boat as they go house to house checking for ” ood victims from Florence, Saturday in New Bern, N.C. [STEVE HELBER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]By Gregory KatzThe Associated PressLONDON „ British Prime Minister Theresa May concedes that she gets irritatedŽ by the debate over her leadership during the difficult Brexit negotiations.She told the BBC in an interview scheduled to be broadcast Monday that she is concerned for the countrys future, not her own, as lks about Britains upcoming exit from the European Union continue.May faces a split in her Conservative Party, with some influential figures preferring a more complete break with the EU than she is advocating. Roughly 50 hard-liners met Tuesday night to discuss her pos-sible ouster.In the interview, May said the leadership talk can be distracting.I get a little bit irritated, but this debate is not about my future. This debate is about the future of the people of the U.K. and the future of the United King-dom,Ž she said. Thats what Im focused on, and thats what we should all be focused on.ŽThe opposition Labour Party is also increasingly divided over the Brexit issue. London Mayor Sadiq Khan broke ranks on Sunday with party leader Jeremy Corbyn to publicly back a second referendum of whether Britain should go forward with plans to leave the EU.Writing in The Observer, Khan said Britain faces either a bad deal or no deal at all „ options he said are incredibly risky.ŽHe said the public deserves a right to choose between any deal reached by the government or stay-ing in the EU. He said that if no deal is reach, the public should be able to choose between the no dealŽ scenario or remaining in the bloc.UK leader: Talk of leadership during Brexit irritating

By Melissa EricksonMore Content NowMom wanted the best for you when she advised, "Dont slouch; sit up tall." Good posture can be empowering. For students who have test anxiety, simply sitting up straight can positively affect their performance, according to a new study by researchers at San Francisco State University. Posture can aid in performance for people who anticipate doing poorly or "blanking out" on a math exam or in other pursuits, such as speaking in public or playing sports or music, said Erik Peper, a professor of holistic health at San Francisco State. If you change your posture you can change your presence, Peper said. If you stand tall, not only will others see you as empowered but you will perceive yourself to be empowered, too. "Pay attention; shift your intention," said Richard Harvey, associate professor of holistic health at San Francisco State. About the study As part of the small study, 125 college students were tested to see how well they could perform simple math „ subtracting 7 from 843 sequentially for 15 seconds „ while either slumped over or sitting up straight with shoulders back and relaxed. Fifty-six percent of the students reported finding it easier to perform the math in the upright position. The study was not a math ability test. While many students feel anxious before tests, 32 percent report "severe test anxiety, fear of math and blanking out on exams while less than 10 percent report minimal test anxiety, fear of math and blanking out on exams," Harvey said. The upright head and erect posture only helps those who are anxious or fearful of blanking out, the study found. For the students in the study who reported the lowest test anxiety and math difficulty, there was no significant difference between slouched and erect positions in mental math performance. More importantly, students with the highest level of test anxiety rated the math task significantly more difficult in the slouched position, Peper said. Assess your own posture When a person feels defeated, exhausted or hopeless, he tends to slouch inward, bracing shoulders and curling in on himself, Harvey said. When a person feels optimistic or empowered he expands in space, getting taller, Peper said. Thinking of it from an evolutionary angle, a slouched body position portrays that a person is feeling threatened, Harvey said. Youre reducing the width of the body from possible attack, he said. Many people are unaware of how they carry themselves, especially as they walk around with mobile phones stuck to the sides of their heads, Harvey said. Their body position is sending a message to the brain. This defensive posture can trigger negative memories in both the body and the brain, Harvey said. This positive posture approach can work for anyone who anticipates something will be difficult or challenging, Peper said. Interested in changing your posture? Train yourself to stand up tall, Peper said. It sound easy, but its hard to change habits, Harvey said. If you slouch while sitting at the computer or while studying, adjust your workstation so the computer screen is at eye level. Invest in tech like Upright Go, a wearable device that vibrates whenever a person slouches.STAND UP TALL Find us on Facebook at WashingtonCountyNews.

Its a scary thing and can often leave us feeling like we cant carry on. For all those who have faced a hurricane (literal or otherwise), I offer this Gospel story. After a long day of teaching, Jesus and his disciples are in a small boat on the Sea of Galilee. A furious storm blows in, and as the boat begins to swamp, the disciples begin to panic. (Please keep in mind that at least four of them were professional fishermen, so this must have been one massive storm.) The scripture doesnt tell us this specifically, but I imagine that when the boat begins to fill with water, the disciples do the one thing they can do „ bail out the boat. They bail and bail, yet the water keeps coming and the wind keeps howling. Finally, when the boat is about to sink, they called for Jesus, who is asleep in the stern (quite a feat in such a tumult). Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?Ž Jesus stands up, rebukes the wind, then says to the sea, Peace! Be still!Ž The wind ceases, and there is a dead calm on the waters. Then Jesus says, Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith? (Mark 4:40). While this story contains a clear lesson on faith, something else has always struck me: the distinct nature of the roles of the disciples and Jesus. The disciples are in charge of sailing the boat and bailing it out when it starts to sink. Thats what they can do. That is in their control. On the other hand, Jesus is in charge of calming the storm. That is within his control. And its the same for us. We, as human beings, are best suited for sailing and bailing the boat „ for showing up, putting in the time, and doing the work. That is in our control. Jesus, on the other hand, is best for calming the storms „ for easing our fears, doubts, anger and resentment. That is within his control. The problem is that we usually try to do Jesus job as well as our own, which just doesnt work. The great jazz singer Lena Horne explained it like this: Its not the load that breaks you down. Its how you carry it.Ž Thats why Ive now started keeping two to-do lists: Mine and Jesus. Heres an example. Lets say you have a medical issue. Your to-do list should be about sailing and bailing the boat „ which means doing things within your control, such as going to the doctor, taking your meds and undergoing the necessary tests or treatments. Jesus to-do list should contain things that you dont do so well or that arent in your control. Things like worrying about what tomorrow will bring. Are you anxious about money? Your to-do list is to sail and bail the boat: make a budget, cut down on costs, and pay down or renegotiate your debt. Things to put on Jesus list: calm the storm of apprehension and ease the stigma of shame. Or maybe you are digging out from a literal storm. Your list: clean up and rebuild. Jesus list: rebuke the anger, still the fear and strengthen your will to go forward. We all face storms in this life. Many of them are literal, like Florence and Mangkhut. And while these storms may rage on for some time, the storms in our hearts can be calmed at any time. Its all comes down to splitting your to-do list into the two categories reflected in this simple prayer: Lord, Ill bail the boat. You calm the storm.Lord, Ill bail the boat. You calm the storm S u s a n S p a r k s Susan Sparks

VACCINESONLINE RESOURCEThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched a new interactive guide ( vaccines/growing) to help navigate the vaccines recommended at each stage of life. This resource teaches families about vaccinepreventable diseases and highlights the recommended timing for key immunizations. „ Brandpoint HEALTHBy Rachel Bluth Kaiser Health NewsThe number of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has reached more than 10 percent, a significant increase during the past 20 years, according to a recent study. The rise was most pronounced in minority groups, suggesting that better access to health insurance and mental health treatment through the Affordable Care Act might have played some role in the increase. The rate of diagnosis during that time period doubled in girls, although it was still much lower than in boys. But the researchers say they found no evidence confirming frequent complaints that the condition is overdiagnosed or misdiagnosed. The U.S. has significantly more instances of ADHD than other developed countries, which researchers said has led some to think Americans are overdiagnosing children. Dr. Wei Bao, the lead author of the study, said in an interview that a review of studies around the world doesnt support that. Nonetheless, those doubts persist. Dr. Stephen Hinshaw, who coauthored a 2014 book called The ADHD Explosion: Myths, Medication, Money, and Todays Push for Performance,Ž compared ADHD to depression. He said in an interview that neither condition has unequivocal biological markers, so it makes it hard to determine if a patient truly has the condition without lengthy psychological evaluations. Symptoms of ADHD can include inattention, fidgety behavior and impulsivity. Its probably not a true epidemic of ADHD,Ž said Hinshaw, a professor of psychology at the University of California-Berkeley and a professor of psychiatry at UC-San Francisco. It might be an epidemic of diagnosing it.Ž In interpreting their results, however, the studys authors tied the higher numbers to better understanding of the condition by doctors and the public, new standards for diagnosis and an increase in access to health insurance through the ACA. Because of the ACA, some lowincome families have improved access to services and referrals,Ž said Bao, an assistant professor of epidemiology at the University of Iowa College of Public Health. The study, published in JAMA Network, used data from the National Health Interview Survey, an annual federal survey of about 35,000 households. It found a steady increase in diagnoses among children from about 6 percent of children between 1997 and 1998 to more than 10 percent between 2015 and 2016. Advances in medical technology also may have contributed to the increase, according to the research. Twenty years ago, preterm or lowweight babies had a harder time surviving. Those factors increase the risk of being diagnosed with ADHD. The study also suggests that fewer stigmas about mental health care in minority communities may also lead to more people receiving an ADHD diagnosis. In the late 1990s, 7.2 percent of non-Hispanic white children, 4.7 percent of non-Hispanic black children and 3.6 of Hispanic children were diagnosed with ADHD, according to the study. By 2016, it was 12 percent of white kids, 12.8 percent of blacks and 6.1 percent of Hispanics. Over the past several decades, Hinshaw said, theres been an expanded view of who can develop ADHD. Its no longer viewed as a disease that affects only white middle-class boys, as eating disorders are no longer seen as afflicting only white middle-class girls. Still, he cautioned against overdiagnosing ADHD in communities where behavioral issues could be the result of social or environmental factors such as overcrowded classrooms. The study found rates of ADHD among girls rose from 3 to more than 6 percent over the study period. It said that was partly a result of a change in how the condition is classified. For years, ADHD pertained to children who were hyperactive. But in recent years, the American Psychiatric Association added to its guide of mental health conditions that diagnosis should also include some children who are inattentive, Bao said. That raised the number of girls, he explained, because it seems they are more likely to be in that second subtype. If we compare these two, you can easily imagine people will easily recognize hyperactivity,Ž he said. KHNs coverage of childrens health care issues is supported in part by the Heising-Simons Foundation. Tips for parents€ Create a routine. Try to follow the same schedule every day, from wake-up time to bedtime. € Get organized. Encourage your child to put schoolbags, clothing, and toys in the same place every day so your child will be less likely to lose them. € Manage distractions. Turn off the TV, limit noise, and provide a clean workspace when your child is doing homework. Some children with ADHD learn well if they are moving, or listening to background music. Watch your child and see what works. € Limit choices. Offer choices between a few things so that your child doesnt get overwhelmed and overstimulated. For example, offer choices between a few options, such as this out“ t or that one, or this toy or that one. € Be clear and specific when you talk with your child. Let your child know you are listening by describing what you heard them say. Use clear, brief directions when they need to do something. € Help your child plan. Break down complicated tasks into simpler, shorter steps. For long tasks, starting early and taking breaks may help limit stress. € Use goals and praise or other rewards. Use a chart to list goals and track positive behaviors, then let your child know they have done well. Be sure the goals are realistic„baby steps are important! € Discipline effectively. Instead of yelling or spanking, use timeouts or removal of privileges as consequences for inappropriate behavior. € Create positive opportunities. Children with ADHD may “ nd certain situations stressful. Finding out and encouraging what your child does well „ whether its school, sports, art, music, or play „ can help create positive experiences. € Provide a healthy lifestyle. Nutritious food, lots of physical activity, and suf“ cient sleep are important; they can help keep ADHD symptoms from getting worse.Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Double the diagnosesPercentage of children with ADHD has jumped in the past 20 years R.
