For those not familiar with the PGA Tour’s format change, there is no longer a PGA Tour school offering playing cards to the top 25 finishers. Tour cards for the next season are now determined by the PGA Tour and Web.com money lists. Each new season will open in early October and go through mid August. The 2013-14 season kicks off Oct. 7 with the Fry’s.com Open in San Martin, Calif. There will be five other fall tournaments, concluding with the OHL Mayakoba Classic in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. One of the intriguing questions about the new format is how many of the game’s top players will participate in the fall events. Historically, most of the game’s big names pretty much pack it in after the Fed Ex Cup, save for unofficial tournaments that are part of the so-called “silly season.” CHIP SHOTS: George Broussard of Port Arthur continued the recent run of holes in one at Bayou Din. Broussard sank his tee shot on the 136-yard, 8th on the Links Course, using a 6-iron. The shot was witnessed by Gary Richardson, Jimmy Dubois and John Parent. It was Broussard’s first ace . . . Tim Cauthen also authored a first at Bayou Din, getting his first-ever eagle on the par 4, 15th. Cauthen hit a towering 9-iron over trees and into the cup on his second shot. Looking on were Roy Vickers and Steve Childree . . . Thad Borne of Port Arthur made an eagle 2 on the par 4, 4th hole at Babe Zaharias. Borne holed a wedge from 80 yards. Witnesses were Tom Lawton, Ricky Becker and Bill Hanley . . . LU ex Chris Stroud was disappointed at missing the cut by one shot in last week’s PGA Championship, but was not unhappy with the way he played. Stroud had the misfortune of being on the wrong side of the draw and had to play in the worst of the rain on Friday, leading to a 73. The good news was that he had no problems with a previously injured left heel. Since he only got in two rounds at the PGA, Stroud will play in this week’s Wyndham Championship to tune up for next week’s start of the Fed Ex Cup playoffs . . . Lonnie LaBove, who played a key role in PN-G’s domination of the area golf scene, and back-to-back trips to the 4A state championship, has turned pro. He’ll make his debut in the play for pay ranks in the Sept. 17-20 Adams Tour stop at Rayburn Country. He’ll also play in the Adams Tour event at Gray Plantation in early October. Lonnie is the son of Josh LaBove . . . Twelve participants from the Southern Texas PGA Junior Tour in Southeast Texas have qualified for the STPGA Junior Chamionship starting today at Cypresswood Golf Club’s Tradition Course. Included are Brandon Soileau, Thaine Tillie, Cameron Duhon and Jarrod Brown from Boys 16-18, Michael Krautz, Seth Morgan, Bryce Shaver and Drake Dodson from Boys 13-15, Collin Todora from Boys 10-12 and Jack Burke and Collin Lietzke from Little Linksters Boys 10-12 . . . Babe Zaharias pro Ed Campbell, who can’t be given enough credit for all he did to make the recent fundraiser for Belle Oaks pro Bryan Jackson so successful, has revised upward the event’s bottom line. After originally saying $20,000 had been raised toward Jackson’s medical bills, Campbell said Tuesday the figure will top $25,000. Campbell also threw out a bouquet toward committee member Darlene Moody for her efforts in several areas. “Darlene was amazing,” said Campbell. “She was more help to me than anybody I’ve ever had working with me on a tournament since I’ve been in the golf business.” From what I saw, Ed was not exaggerating . . . The team of Ed Hetzel, Ray Trahan, Bobby Shelton and Paul Bourgeois posted 21 points to win the Babe Zaharias DogFight. Second with 24 points was the team of Cody Metts, Paul Duplantis, Larry Rogers and Paul Brown. Closest to the pin winners were Brown (No. 2), Jim Smith (No. 7), Metts (No. 12) and Hetzel (No. 15) . . . The team of Seth Cochran, Josh Crum, Greg Cockram and Asa Cardenas shot a 56, then needed a scorecard player to win the Clint Wasser Memorial Scramble at Babe Zaharias. Also shooting 56 was the team of Charles Graves, Wes Turner, Taylor Reese and Dustin Brown and the foursome of Jordan Havard, Brent Guidry, Jordan Leger and Matt Hendon . . . The team of Jim Jordan, R. Darbonne, Roger Baumer and Gary Anderson posted minus 5 to win the front nine in the Senior 50 Plus Game at Babe Zaharias. On the back, the foursome of Larry Thompson, Butch Pitman, Paul Duplantis and Ben Thornton prevailed with minus 6 . . . The Senior Game at The Babe was played in a four-person points format. Winning with plus 1 was the team of Don MacNeil, Keith Rochau, Malcom Tiller and Pete Reobroi. Second at plus 2 was the foursome of Wes McDonald, Gene Hardy, Ben Thornton and Roger Baumer. Closest to the pin winners were Rick Pritchett (No. 2), Hardy (No. 7), Bill Jones (No. 12) and Dickie Robinson (No. 15) . . .The Super Saturday Game at Zaharias was played in a 2-ball format, with the team of Randy Monk, Scottie Ray, Don MacNeil and Dan Flood winning the front in minus 8. On the back, the team of Rick Brunner, Rick Pritchett, Ivory Hatch and Mark Petry won with minus 5 . . . Bill Worsham was the winner in both the Monday Seniors at Belle Oaks and the Friday Seniors at Belle Oaks, finishing with plus 3 both days. In the Monday Game, Norm Shannon, Dennis Neef and Ed Boone tied for second at plus 2. On Friday, Twyman Ash tied Worsham’s plus 3, while Barry Jackson was third at plus 1. Shannon was the closest to the pin winner on No. 15 on Monday and on No. 8 on Friday . . . Entry deadline for the 54th annual Sunset Grove Labor Day Tournament, which is 54 holes of stroke play, is Aug. 23. Entry fee is $180 for medal point and points flights and $130 for Senior and Ladies play. Included in the entry is a free practice round up until 1 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30. Cart fee for players in the medal and points flights is $50. Seniors and ladies pay $35. Anyone seeking further information should contact Sunset Grove pro Kerry Lamb at 883-9454. When healthy, the long knocker from Barbers Hill is capable of doing that, since there are already two top 10s on the resume for his rookie season. He finished T7 at Tampa and T7 at the St. Jude’s Classic in Memphis. Overall, he’s made 10 of 19 cuts and five of the last six. While it didn’t make him any serious money, the highlight of Stefani’s season was a hole-in-one on the 17th at Merion in the final round of the U.S. Open. It earned him the distinction of being the only player to make an ace in five U.S. Opens at Merion. The lowlight, meanwhile, is a herniated disc that couldn’t have happened at a worse time. It’s now or never for Lamar University ex Shawn Stefani, as far as being able to keep his PGA Tour card for next year. And, unfortunately, he’s saddled with a back problem that forced him to withdraw the last time he tried to play in the July 11-14 John Deere Classic. Under the PGA Tour’s revised format, this week’s Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C., is the final event of the 2013 season. Any player not in the top 125 on the money list or the Fed Ex Cup points list after the Wyndham must spend next season on the Web.com Tour. Stefani stands No. 134 on the money list ($496,543) and No. 136 on Fed Ex Cup points. His best shot is the money list, but he’s roughly $87,000 behind No. 125 Greg Chalmers. That means he’ll need to finish in the top 10. Golf news should be e-mailed to [email protected] or faxed to 724-6854.

Capt. Crystal Holmes with the JSCO said around 5:15 a.m. Tuesday morning an RV was reported fully engulfed in flames at In the Middle RV Park, 9017 Hillebrandt Road.It is unknown at this time if they are human or animal remains but investigators will treat the remains as human until otherwise notified. The remains have been transported to the morgue.The fire marshal was also on scene, Holmes said, and the investigation is early on.In the Middle RV Park is located between Port Arthur, Beaumont and Winnie, according to the park’s website. Investigators with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office are investigating remains found in a burned recreational vehicle at an RV park.
Those are both very serious, so here is some lighter foreign fare. Tel Aviv on Fire tells the story of a lowly Palestinian writer who finds success at a popular soap opera when he takes advice from the commander at the Israeli security checkpoint. I am also a big fan of Ash is Purest White, a tragicomedy about a woman who watches her life rise thanks to her gangster-boyfriend, and then fall apart when she goes to prison for him. This was almost on my list of top 10 films of the year.Finally, a fun little indie gem, Brittany Runs a Marathon, is the charming story of an average young woman who decides to get her life in order as she trains to run a marathon. Jillian Bell stars in this delightful comedy.Movie reviews by Sean, “The Movie Guy,” are published each week in “The Port Arthur News” and seen weekly on KFDM and Fox4. Sean welcomes your comments via email at [email protected] Yesterday and Blinded by the Light played in our local theaters, but they weren’t widely seen. Both films are a lot of fun, especially for fans of the Beatles and Bruce Springsteen. Appealing to classic rock fans is the documentary, Echo in the Canyon, which explores the explosion of pop music that came out Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s. With performances and interviews with Tom Petty, Brian Wilson, David Crosby, Eric Clapton, Beck, Fiona Apple, Nora Jones and more, this is a fascinating look at music history.Speaking of documentaries, there are several that you might want to check out. Apollo 11 obviously delves into America’s space program with never-seen-before footage that is both visually stunning and emotionally rousing. Down on earth we have The Biggest Little Farm, the story of a young couple that decides to start an ecologically balanced farm — it’s a siren call to anybody who has ever felt the need to quit the rat race and get back in communion with nature.For something with some more emotional fireworks, look at For Sama and The Cave. Both are harrowing, foreign language looks at the brave men and women running hospitals while under siege in Syria. These are shocking, cinematic gut-punches, and two of the best documentaries from last year.If Parasite proved that American audiences would watch foreign language films, then I have several other great films to recommend. At the top of my list is Portrait of a Lady on Fire, a visually stunning tale of forbidden love in France in the 1700s. Also, acclaimed filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar reteams with Antonio Banderas in Pain and Glory, the story of a Spanish filmmaker examining his past in search for meaning in his art. The Coronavirus is forcing Hollywood to take a sabbatical, meaning that there won’t be any new movies to see until May, at the earliest.You shouldn’t be going out to the theater, but watching movies at home is perfectly fine. If there’s a silver lining to this crisis, perhaps it’s that movie fans will get a chance to catch up on their movie watch list. With that in mind, allow me to suggest some of the best films from last year that you might have missed. 2019 was filled with some wonderfully feel-good movies that had music as their center.Perhaps my favorite is Wild Rose, the story of a recently paroled Scottish woman who embarks on an improbable country music career. Newcomer Jessie Buckley shines thanks to solid acting and superb singing. I saw this film months ago, but I still find the haunting song “Glasgow” echoing in my head all this time later.Another favorite is Hearts Beat Loud, the story of a father who starts a band with his daughter just as she’s getting ready to leave for college. Online success complicates their relationship in this fun family drama that’s also a story of rock stardom dreams.
NEDERLAND — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday morning that George Finne has been located and is back with family — “Thank you for all of the help.” The Sheriff’s Office was asking for the public’s assistance in locating Finne because of a “welfare concern.”His last known contact was to his mother on July 4, using the phone at the Express Mart at Beauxart Garden and Highway 69 in Nederland.He had told his mother that he was walking to Beaumont.

MISSIONThe National Center for Credibility Assessment is the federal center for credibility assessment education, oversight, research and development. NCCA supports 28 DOD and federal agencies in addition to war-fighter elements by:• Providing initial education and training to qualify federal personnel for certification in credibility assessment technologies.• Training the war-fighter on credibility assessment screening devices.• Managing the continuing education certification program for all federal agencies.• Managing the quality assurance program that develops, implements and provides oversight of standards for the federal credibility assessment programs.• Researching, investigating, developing, validating and fielding credibility assessment tools that increase and enhance operational capabilities.• Providing strategic support to intelligence and law enforcement operations and investigations in the form of advice, analysis and assistance.THE ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION OF NCCAThe original U.S. Army Polygraph School was established in 1951 as part of the Provost Marshal General School at Fort Gordon, Georgia, and graduated its first class that same year. In September 1962, the Provost Marshal School was redesignated the U.S. Army Military Police School, known as USAMPS, and the Army Polygraph School remained under the auspices of USAMPS. In 1975, USAMPS and its polygraph school transferred to Fort McClellan, Alabama.In 1985, Congress passed a bill directing and authorizing the secretary of defense to institute a program of counterintelligence polygraph examinations for military, civilian and contractor personnel whose duties involved access to classified and highly sensitive compartmented information.In August 1985, the deputy secretary of defense signed a memorandum designating the secretary of the Army as executive agent for polygraph training within the DOD; and in November 1986, USAMPS Polygraph School was realigned and designated as the DOD Polygraph Institute, known as DODPI. Shortly thereafter, DODPI transitioned from a vocational and technical polygraph training school to an educational institution.In September 1991, the secretary of the Army executive agency responsibility was eliminated and changed the authority, direction and control of DODPI to the assistant secretary of defense for Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence.In June 1993, the Joint Security Commission was formed to address security concerns within the federal government, specifically within the intelligence and defense communities. One of the recommendations was to consolidate the CIA Polygraph School with DODPI to form a polygraph institute that would conduct all polygraph education and training of government polygraph examiners. Another recommendation was that DODPI be the executive agent for a robust, interagency-coordinated and centrally funded research program concentrating on developing valid and reliable security and applicant screening tests; investigating countermeasures; and conducting developmental research on polygraph techniques, instrumentation and analytical methods.In May 1999, operational responsibilities for DODPI were placed under the Defense Security Service. As part of the Base Realignment and Closure, in June 1999, DODPI moved to its present location at Fort Jackson.In July 2000, the DODPI polygraph education program was recognized for transferrable graduate credit by Argosy University, Washington, D.C.In December 2002, DODPI was functionally transferred from the Defense Security Service to the newly established Counterintelligence Field Activity. DODPI operationally fell under the Counterintelligence Field Activity on Oct. 1, 2003.In January 2003, DODPI was accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools to award a certificate of graduate study in the psychophysiological detection of deception. Several universities now accept the program’s coursework for graduate credit.On Jan. 25, 2007, the deputy secretary of defense signed a directive renaming DODPI the Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment, or DACA, a name representing the full spectrum of credibility assessment missions.On Aug. 3, 2008, DACA transitioned under the operational control of the Defense Intelligence Agency.The undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence recommended the redesignation of DACA as the NCCA, stating “formal designation of DACA as a national center acknowledges congressional recognition of DACA as the leader for federal credibility assessment issues and provides a clear focal point for this discipline within the federal government.” The recommendation to designate the organization as the NCCA was approved by the deputy secretary for defense Aug. 26, 2010.On Sept. 20, 2012, the director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, endorsed the NCCA as “the office of primary responsibility across the executive branch for polygraph examiner education and training, continuing education certification, quality assurance programming and credibility assessment research.”
