State fails to track massage parlor violationsBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITERVenice Police Departments “rst investigation into prostitution at licensed massage establishments was prompted by an attempted robbery and brutal attack last year, which left a masseuse with severe head and brain injuries. Ralph Marklin Forte is jailed on charges including, but not limited to, attempted homicide, robbery and kidnapping. He told police he attacked the then-licensed masseuse, Hongwen Xin, last October at 88 Spa in Venice because she had provided a sexual act for which he felt he was overcharged. After months of investigation that also followed complaints from the public, police arrested three licensed massage therapists in Venice for prostitution in April. The three shut down, at least within city limits, according to Sgt. Matthew Sauchinitz. But its not over. None of the licensed massage establishments and therapists have had their licenses revoked or suspended so far, though some were voluntarily relinquished or delinquent, which does not constitute discipline. Just one of the therapists accused of prostitution in Venice had to relinquish her license, according to records from the Florida Department of Health. Typically what theyll do is change ownership real fast,Ž said Sauchinitz. MASSAGE | 4 BOTTOM LINEThis is the first of a two-part series on massage parlors and prostitution in Southwest Florida and how law enforcement and state agencies attempt to thwart illegal businesses. Part two is scheduled for Monday. Massage Special Today ENJOY A RELAXING MASSAGE BY ONE OF OUR WONDERFUL THERAPISTS Private massage rooms FOR THE MOST RELAXING DAY OF YOUR LIFE A BEAUTIFUL ExperienceANY TYPE OF ASIAN MASSAGEWalk in welcome OPEN MORE THAN MASSAGE? PART 1 Four massage therapists and three establishments in Venice did not lose their licenses to suspension or revocation after police discovered prostitution was going on in April. Heres how it panned out instead: 88 Spa LLC has no discipline on file, no public complaint and a clear license status from FDOH. It is inactive as an LLC due to voluntary dissolution in April. Shengjuan Yang pleaded no contest this month to the felony charge in Sarasota County Circuit Court. According to court records, her sentencing will be deferred upon successful completion of Turn Your Life Around program and her address is in California. A search in that state showed no massage license in her name. In January, a Shengjuan Yang with the same date of birth was arrested and charged with prostitution in a Lee County Sheriffs Office sting while working at Estero Massage Therapy, at 21740 S. Tamiami Trail, court records show. While there is no discipline on file, Yangs Florida massage therapist license was voluntarily relinquished, which means she elected to give the license up but that does not constitute discipline, according to information from the FDOH. Hongwen Xin, a licensed therapist who was severely attacked with a hammer, and accused of prostitution by her attacker, was prior to that facing an administrative complaint from the FDOH from 2015 involving alleged sexual misconduct toward an undercover Lee County deputy, while working at Oriental Therapy Spa, which was also located at 21740 South Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers, records show. She was not charged with any prostitution crime in the Venice incident where she was victimized, records show. Healing Touch Asian Massage and Skincare in Venice at 225Miami Ave. W has a delinquent establishment license status with no discipline or public complaint on file through the FDOH, which means a renewal application could be submitted within 60 days of an Aug. 31 expiration date. The corporation it was run under Healing Touch HMR Inc. has become inactive through the Florida Division of Corporations due to administrative dissolution for no annual report filing. Jin L. Jin who was arrested following an alleged prostitution incident at Healing Touch has a delinquent license through the FDOH, which means she held a clear license but failed to renew by the expiration date and is not authorized to practice in Florida. Jin, whose address of record is in New York, also has a public complaint and enforcement alert based on a March 2016 Board of Massage Therapy Administrative Complaint for not reporting a nolo contender plea to a count of prostitution out of Hillsborough County in 2010. Her Venice case was just dismissed this month when she successfully completed the Turning Your Life Around program after pleading no contest in June. Hua Xu was accused of a first offense of prostitution that allegedly occurred with an undercover agent at Venice Holistic Health Asian Spa and has a jury trial set for November. She speaks Mandarin and is living in New York, according to court records from Sarasota County. Xus Florida massage therapist license is clear/active with no discipline or complaints. However she has indicated to the state of Florida that she is not practicing here and could begin again at any time so long as the license status is active, according to information from FDOH. The Venice Holistic Health Spa, LLC has no public complaint or discipline on file but its license was voluntarily relinquished, which doesnt constitute discipline, according to FDOH records. The LLC remains active in Florida. DISCIPLINE? UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT Friendly staffThank you to the many readers who wrote offering constructive cr itiques about my column on snowbirds. I tried to present both sides of this question: Are snowbirds a net plus for Floridas economy? Because I presented both the economic pros and cons of snowbirds, I got skewered from both sides. Put a little butter on me and let me roast. First, a snowbird response: We spend a lot of money down there and ask for little in return. I dont think Florida would have even “ve million residents if not for snowbirds.Ž RG I dont know how many residents Florida would have if we had turned away all our potential snowbirds. I can say, if Florida hadnt chosen to make retirees and snowbirds Floridas primary business, our property taxes would be much higher and Florida would likely have an income tax. RG, I was just making the point that many snowbirds dont fully understand most employers cant easily hire only winter-season workers. Local businesses cant choose to pay rent and utilities only in the season. While we are grateful for snowbird friends, the downside of relying on winter snowbirds is local businesses lose money in the summer. The same is true for government. Yes, snowbirds dont have a homestead exemption. Yes, snowbirds pay taxes all year round even though they are here part time. But we cant open roads just for the season or hire EMTs or sheriff deputies to only work in the winter when you are here. RG, I was trying to make the point that snowbirds taxes are not as much pure pro“t as many snowbirds might think. I did not mean to offend. Year-round residents thought I was too bullish presenting the positives of snowbirds. Taking a hit from both sides „ snowbirds, localsDAVID | 4 DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENTSOUTHWEST FLORIDA „ Already low unemployment numbers took a steep dive in September across the region, falling to their lowest level in a decade. In Charlotte County, the jobless rate fell to 3.9 percent last month, well-below 4.7 percent in August and 5.7 percent a year ago, according to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The last time it was this low was March 2007. The month-to-month unemployment rate in both Sarasota and DeSoto counties also dropped precipitously, falling by 0.7 percent in each case. The Sarasota County jobless rate went from 3.9 percent in August to 3.2 percent last month, with DeSotos declining from 4.8 percent to 4.1 percent during the same period. Sarasota County had not registered a lower rate since 3.0 percent in December 2006. A year ago, the unemployment rate in Sarasota County was 4.9 percent, while DeSotos was 6.0 percent. John Shannon, economic analyst for the Florida Gulf Coast University Regional Economic Research Institute, attributed the reduction in jobless numbers to the cyclical hiring of more workers as season approaches. But he was at a loss as to why the unemployment rate decreased by so much, and if it will hold. Its worth keeping an eye on,Ž Jobless rates descend to historic lowsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERJOBLESS | 4CALL US AT941-206-1000CHARLOTTE SUN Pulitzer Prize winner2016 AN EDITION OF THE SUNVOL. 125 | NO. 295AMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILY Humid with clouds and sunHigh 89 Low 74$3.00 www.yoursun.comTodays weather:www.yoursun.comFIND US ONLINE CHARLIE SAYS ...One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.Ž „ John F.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Che c k out the Fi s h Finder every Thur s day,only in WaterLine,only in Looking for a Friend? Find him in the Classifieds PLACIDA „ Attorney Robert Berntsson expected public interest in his clients redevelopment plans for the 20-acre Fishery complex in Placida. Berntsson thought people would meander in and out of The Fishery restaurant Wednesday afternoon to see whats being proposed. What he didnt expect was 150 or more people to crowd into the restaurant all at once „ even before the meeting started. This gives you the opportunity to know the project,Ž Berntsson told people at the outset. The goal for the proposed redevelopment plan is to go before the Charlotte County advisory Planning and Zoning Board in December and then to county commissioners in January for final approvals. County staff is now reviewing the application. The Old FloridaŽ ambiance of the individual art galleries, boutiques and other businesses now at the Fishery would be replaced with a mixed-use planned development of multi-family and commercial uses. Key features include: € Three, six-story condominiums with 148 units over parking to a height of 65 feet. € A 40-room guest lodge, restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining, and retail space. € A clubhouse and marina. Only the condos could exceed the existing 35-foot height limit. Berntsson explained that in order to garner the additional height for the development, the site would have to include an equal amount of open space. Berntsson clarified how not all the developments open space will be public space. The project will need the transfer of residential development units, known as TDUs. Charlotte County only allows the TDUs to be transferred from other properties in West Charlotte County, Berntsson said. Berntsson felt people were more receptive of the plans than he anticipated. However, height for the condos appeared to be an outstanding concern. I think the height is going to be a problem for here,Ž said Ed Ellis, a Gasparilla Pines resident. We dont want to be Miami Beach out here. Youre not going to be able to see over these building unless youre in an airplane.Ž Marcia Louden, retired principal at L.A. Ainger Middle School principal, saw her schools student body drop from a high of 1,100 to 600 in the last decade. A major cause of the drop, she said, was families moving away from the area after the recession for better economic conditions. Part of our struggle is that weve been economically stagnant,Ž said Louden, a resident of Cape HazeWindward. I look at this (redevelopment) as an economic boon to the area. It will bring jobs to the area that will keep people, pay people year-round. I see that as a definite benefit for our children and our families,Ž she said. But some people, like South Gulf Cove residents Tom and Alice Minich, will miss the quaint charm of the Fishery now. We came to this side of the state because it wasnt cement and high-rises,Ž Alice said. Its natural Florida and we love it.Ž While recognizing the need for progress, she said, I just want them to keep the old Florida feel instead of condos and cement.Ž Christopher Kiritsis „ agent for Potomac Group LA1 LLC, the Sarasota-based development firm „ said he found people supportive and intended to work with locals, including the gallery owners and other business owners at the Fishery.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comFishery redevelopment draws public interestBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER Todd Rebol of Banks Engineering and Robert Berntsson of the Big W Law Firm explain their clients plans for the redevelopment of the Fishery in Placida.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 We will continue to monitor. ... If theres illegal activity, were not going to tolerate it.Ž Sauchinitz con“rmed this isnt just happening in Venice. From Sarasota and Manatee counties down to Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties, websites like or offer ads and clues into where men could buy sexual stimulation. Its de“nitely a community issue,Ž said Sauchinitz. They are advertising through the tri-county area.Ž When building their case, Venice police watched upward of 10 to 20 men at night; they stopped cars leaving; they got information from men who admitted to buying sexual acts. Sauchinitz said some of the men, like Forte accused in the attempted homicide, were local from Venice. Others were from Charlotte County, other parts of Sarasota County, or had traveled from out-of-state on business. None of those Johns who admitted to having paid for sexual acts at the massage establishments were charged with crimes, Venice police con“rmed. Charlotte County has not had a recent massage parlor bust,Ž Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce Spokesperson Katie Heck con“rmed. She noted investigators are cautious to provide information on the methods used to investigate establishments that may not be operating as their license states, but they do monitor online postings and made prostitution arrests last year stemming from online advertising. Heck said CCSO have also participated in prostitution stings with the Punta Gorda Police Department within the city jurisdiction. Like Venice police, CCSO also relies on information from the community. The Sheriffs Of“ce does encourage concerned citizens to contact our agency with any concerns they have about any local business involved in criminal activity,Ž said Heck. These complaints or reports are taken seriously and investigated.Ž Meanwhile, the Florida Department of Health doesnt track how many licensed massage therapists or establishments have been involved in prostitution allegations. The department does not have a methodology in place to track cases based on the allegation,Ž said FDOH Spokesperson Brad Dalton. Law enforcement is not required to report prostitution arrests to the FDOH but they often work together and the department also monitors news articles, according to Dalton. Anytime that we discover that a licensed practitioner has been arrested we begin a preliminary investigation and monitor the situation for a conviction,Ž said Dalton. FDOH also doesnt track the underlying reasons for voluntary relinquishments of massage licensure, such as whether they involved prostitution allegations, pleas or convictions, con“rmed Dalton. However, he noted that the department tracks the number of voluntary relinquishments for every license type.Ž And a prior prostitution arrest can prevent someone from becoming licensed or renewal of a license „ though that doesnt always happen. Any instance where sexual misconduct is present but did not fall under an immediate denial the applicant would be required to appear before the board where they have a zero tolerance policy and have the authority to reject an application,Ž said Dalton. For law enforcement, prostitution isnt just the target „ its potentially more dangerous crimes that can go hand-inhand like the assault in Venice or human traf“cking. The Suncoast „ including regions from Hillsborough to Charlotte counties „ is number two in the state right behind Miami for sex traf“cking, according to Vanessa Morris, Director of Awareness for SELAH Freedom, which a national organization headquartered in Sarasota that provides education, training and assistance to survivors of sex traf“cking. When Venice police executed search warrants in April at the three licensed massage establishments „ 88 Spa, Healing Touch Asian Massage and Skin Care, and Venice Holistic Health Asian Spa „ counselors from SELAH were brought in, according to Sauchinitz. A Mandarin interpreter debriefed the women before law enforcement came in to do its part. Ultimately, that is our concern, human traf“cking,Ž said Sauchinitz, but noted the women in their cases did not indicate they were victims of that. According to the National Human Traf“cking Hotline, illicit massage and spa businesses accounted for at least 30 sex traf“cking cases in 2016. Last year, the SELAH program served 2,000 women in Florida. Massage parlors busted for prostitution can be just a front for sex traf“cking happening behind closed doors,Ž said Morris. Most of the time, victims dont selfidentify, she said. With the vast majority of massage industry professionals engaging in legitimate business they also want an end to the prostitution headlines involving licensed therapists and establishments. There are 72 clear and practicing massage establishment licenses issued through the Florida Department of Health for Charlotte County, 10 in North Port, 25 in Englewood and 45 in Venice, according to information from FDOH. It puts a black eye on their industry,Ž said Sauchinitz. Emily Liang, a Punta Gorda-based massage therapist, con“rmed she has received requests from customers for sexual acts. Liang said she tries not to let it bother her personally and she was educated about how to handle inappropriate requests in massage school. Im Chinese. When people see me, I think maybe some guys see Asian and think theres a better chance of doing that. Its really bad. You just tell them no,Ž she said.

In June, agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested six people for prostitution and money laundering who were accused in a prostitution ring involving 13 Asian massage parlorsŽ located from Naples to Tallahassee. Agents began their investigation at the request of Collier County Sheriffs Office and Sarasota Police Department which, like Venice police, had suspected prostitution at massage parlors in their jurisdictions. The investigation that was dubbed Operation Spa, LLC showed females of Chinese descent were offering sex acts in exchange for additional money after providing massages, according to a press release from FDLE. FROM PAGE ONEJK writes: Yes, snowbirds contribute, but the locals contribute more, and there are more than enough permanent residents here to support not only the medical community but all of the restaurants and other businesses.Ž Sorry JK. Thats just not accurate. Almost every local business loses money in the summer when they must rely entirely on year-round residents. If it werent for the snowbird many local businesses would be out of business. Dont take my word for it. Trust your eyes. Roll a bowling ball down the sidewalk in any city in the summer. You wont hit a person. I love our year-round residents like JK. They are the foundation of our community. But, if we relied entirely on our year-round residents, many of our local businesses would be gone. DW touches on an important issue: It is getting more and more dif“cult for average families and year-round resident retirees on a “xed income to “nd adequate housing at a reasonable price. Snowbirds dont make much difference in (the average households) ability to house and feed their families.Ž DW DW, the reason your local government wont push for more affordable housing neighborhoods is simple. Building homes for wealthy retirees and snowbirds is a better “nancial deal for local government. Heres how. A working-class house, lets say worth $150,000, has a homestead exemption of $50,000. They pay property taxes on just $100,000 of value. A wealthy snowbird home of $500,000 pays property tax on the full $500,000. A new snowbird home pays “ve times the property tax as the typical working-class house. Plus, snowbirds generally dont have kids in our schools or commit crimes. This means wealthy snowbirds use dramatically fewer government services but pay “ve times the taxes. Would you create new zoning for wealthy snowbirds or the working class if you were a county commissioner or city council member? Share your thoughts.

In reviewing September job markets in recent years, Shannon said the unemployment rate usually recedes as snowbirds start their annual migration. However, the extreme fall-off in joblessness was a little hard to explain, he said. Shannon suggested that perhaps there was a rush to hire temporary workers in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, which struck Southwest Florida Sept. 10. For example, construction jobs were up 12.8 percent in September from a year ago. But this spurt in the construction “eld could be short-lived. The number of single-family-home building permits in Charlotte County were down 25 percent in September, possibly due to the hurricanes effects, according to FGCU Regional Economic Research Institute data. The lack of permitting means fewer homes and jobs in the short term. Still, the overall job market in Charlotte County is undeniably solid. Last month saw positive year-over-year gains in several categories such as manufacturing, professional business, and education and health services, Shannon said. Many of these jobs are accompanied by higher wages. Thats a positive. Theyre creating good-paying jobs,Ž he said. And the momentum of a strong economy extends to Sarasota County and all of Florida. The North PortSarasota-Bradenton Metropolitan Statistical Area had the fastest annual job growth rate among all metro areas in the state in leisure and hospitality (7.1 percent) and education and health services (6.0 percent) last month. The North PortSarasota-Bradenton MSA also had the second highest annual job growth compared to all metro areas in the state in leisure and hospitality (2,900) last month. Meanwhile, Floridas unemployment rate dropped to 3.8 percent in September, the lowest rate in more than 10 years. The states seasonally adjusted jobless rate was 4.0 percent in August and 4.9 percent a year ago, according to the Department of Economic Opportunity. Floridas unemployment rate has dropped 6.9 percentage points since December 2010, faster than the national decline. In the last year, 239,000 people entered Floridas labor force, a growth of 2.4 percent. This rate is three times the national labor force growth rate of only 0.8 percent. In fact, the states unemployment rate continued to abate despite losing more than 127,000 nonagricultural jobs in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Obviously, our jobs numbers were affected because of this,Ž Gov. Rick Scott said Friday. Florida is a resilient state and we are working around the clock to rebuild and recover from this unprecedented storm.Ž The U.S. unemployment ate was 4.2 percent in September. The number of Americans collecting unemployment bene“ts dropped last week to the lowest level since March 1973. The Labor Department said Thursday that claims for jobless aid dropped by 22,000 to 222,000, down nearly 9 percent from a year ago.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comJOBLESSFROM PAGE 1 AREA UNEMPLOYMENTCounty Sept. 17 August 17 Sept. 16 Charlotte 3.9% 4.7% 5.7% Sarasota 3.2% 3.9% 4.9% DeSoto 4.1% 4.8% 6.0%„ Source: Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Yappy Hour scheduledThe Animal Welfare League will hold its fourth annual Yappy HourŽ from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 5 at the Four Points by Sheraton, 33 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 E/N/C Our Town Page 5 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSA symphonic orchestral performance is like a good meal,Ž said Maestro Raffaele Ponti, the music director and conductor of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. You have to have a good aperitif, something to start the festivities and get people in the mood, a main course and a little dessert. There has to be a good balance.Ž To explain how he achieves musical balance, Ponti is facilitating A Musical Happy Hour: 2017-18 Concert Series,Ž at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, in Punta Gorda. The two-hour seminars precede by two days each of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestras six performances for the season and are set for 4 to 6 p.m. Nov. 10 and Dec. 1 and Jan. 12, Feb. 23, March 16 and April 6, 2018. Participants may register for the seminars individually or for all six. In the seminars, Ponti explains why he chose each piece of music for the program and examines one of those pieces in depth. In keeping with the happy-hour theme, refreshments and light hors doeuvres will be served. These classes are for the lay person and in them I try to debunk the myth that you have to understand classical music to enjoy it,Ž Ponti said. Classical music is for everyone. You cant watch a “lm without a symphony orchestra playing. Were going to make it accessible, fun and social for everyone.Ž Ponti will use technology to help make his point. For example, hell have participants listen to Beethovens First Symphony performed by the NBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Arturo Toscanini then the same piece performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Herbert von Karajan. Well analyze the difference in tempos, dynamics, intensity, styles and colors. Then Ill ask, Which one do you prefer? „ a question that opens a ”ood of debate,Ž Ponti said. Its wonderful because its not about me telling them what to like and how to like it. Its about the participants learning how to listen creatively.Ž Unlike a painting, in which a viewer can step back and study the work, music is only in the air for a split second.Ž His classes allow participants to experience the music the same way he does, according to Ponti. People will start listening to the symphony in a more imaginative and creative way,Ž Ponti said. Instead of listening like a bystander, theyll become an involved listener. Instead of listening to a piece of music, they listen for speci“c voices, for example an oboe solo. Its that creative listening that Im hoping to show them.Ž One thinks they know music until they take this class,Ž said Tony DAnna, of Punta Gorda, who attended Pontis 2013 classes. He opens your mind to the sounds of the different instruments.Ž The experience of creative listening carries over to the concert hall two days later when participants attend the concert in a hall, with their orchestra and their conductor,Ž according to Ponti. The participants in these classes say what they learn in class makes the performance more enjoyable and interesting,Ž he said. After weve broken down the performance in class, it becomes more interactive for them.Ž Maestro Ponti and the classes are fabulous,Ž said Sherry Bechtold, a Punta Gorda resident who also attended Pontis classes in 2013. When you go to the concert you know what to listen for, making the performance more meaningful.Ž For more information or to register for A Musical Happy Hour: 2017-2018 Concert Series,Ž call 941-505-0130.

Recently you reprinted an article from the Tribune News Service, citing Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif, and his concern that President Trump risks damaging his credibility in rethinking Barack Hussein Obamas nuclear deal with Iran. This could place Minister Mohammad in the unenviable position of “nding a new source to fund Hamas terrorism. Well, excuse me, but isnt that partly why Don Trump was elected, to regain lost ground in dealing with terrorist regimes around the globe? Just because a story like that will play in D.C., doesnt mean that out here, in the hinterlands, anyone will get all teary over the budget problems of a terrorist nations foreign minister.Neil Jameson Punta GordaEditor: Lots of coverage of the ”y-in here in Englewood after the event.

It boggles the mind that this story is being reported, partially creating more fake news. Whose limo? Probably not the widows. Who invited whom? Again, it seems unlikely that a grieving widow would say, gee, I guess Ill call my Congressperson and hang out for a while.Ž Even more unlikely would be a widow putting a call from the president on speaker on her own.

When confronted with the OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOROversight lacking as massage parlors open in CharlotteOUR POSITION: Asian massage parlors are becoming more common in Charlotte County, and the lack of regulation is troubling in light of prostitution busts in Venice and other municipalities in Southwest Florida.In April, V enice p olice busted three Asian massage parlors after a monthslong investigation, charging three massage therapists with prostitution. The raid was initiated after a client at one of the establishments beat a female masseuse who he claimed overcharged him for a sex act. Other complaints about Asian massage parlors in Venice led to undercover stings and, eventually, the crackdown. Two of the massage therapists arrested pleaded no contest to prostitution charges and a third is awaiting trial. Those arrests came not long after the Lee County Sheriffs Of“ce arrested eight women, most of Asian descent, working at eight businesses in Lee County and charged them with prostitution or unlicensed massage therapy. And, in June, agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforce ment arrested six people for prostitution and money laundering in a sting involving 12 Asian massage parlors from Naples to Tallahassee. The FDLE investigation showed females of Chinese descent were offering sex acts for additional money after the massage, according to the state agency. What sets Asian massage parlors apart from others are the late hours they are open; the all-Asian staff; advertisements on sites like, where escort services are common; and the fact that few, if any, have local ownership, but instead list owners in Las Vegas, Orlando and other large metropolitan areas. Prostitution, we often hear, is the oldest profession in the world. It is not something that anyone can easily eliminate. Some sta tes and cities have given up and legalized it. Many people might shrug their shoulders and say, big deal.Ž But, “rst of all, it is illegal here. And, it can be a bigger deal if the women involved are traf“cked for sex against their will. Southwest Florida, from Hillsborough County to Charlotte County, is the number-two area in the state for sex traf“cking, according to SELAH Freedom, a national organization based in Sarasota that provides assistance to victims of traf“cking. The lack of oversight of massage businesses is troubling. None of the women arrested in Venice or the business owners lost their license „ although most of the businesses chose to relocate outside city limits. Surprisingly, according to a story in todays Sun by Andrea Praegitzer, the Florida Department of Health does not track how many massage therapists are accused or convi cted of prostitution. Police are not required to report prostitution arrests to the Department of Health and there is no method in place to track that type of illegal activity. Also, businesses operating as a massage parlor sometimes have no licensed therapist on staff. County governments and the DOH may conduct annual assessments to make sure a business license is current but there is little, if any, check to make sure all therapists are licensed. This lack of oversight opens the door for illegal activity that law enforcement too often turns a blind eye to. There are at least “ve massage parlors now operating in a 2-mile strip along Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte. One of them was open for business last week even before it had obtained a business license. And one of the establishments is listed as still being owned by a former business that was busted twice for prostitution. Perhaps the public, and local law enforcement, does not feel this issue is a priority. But the safety and well-being of the women involved and the fact there may be illegal activity going on should matter. If these establishments are indeed offering sex for pay, they are not wanted. website frequently to stay in the know;”.org.Judith Harris Chair, C.A.R.E. Board of Directorsevidence Putin claimed that anyone could have written those notes, including the CIA.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 E/N/C Our Town Page 7 WEEK IN REVIEW VIEWPOINT Like most schoolchildren, I was taught as a kid to love America without knowing exactly what that means. Every morning before class started, we would stand as a group, place our right hand over our hearts, and pledge allegiance to the ”ag. By the way, did you know that according to, the original pledge was written by a socialist minister named Francis Bellamy? Somehow, that seems almost funny, given where we are as a nation right now. Anyway, back on point, as children we also were instructed to stand for the national anthem because everyone else did and we didnt dare be different. Refusing to “t in would mean we didnt love America. None of that is true, of course. If protesting is considered unAmerican, then what is America? You can take a knee during The StarSpangled BannerŽ and still love this country. You can sit out the pledge, too, because this is America and we cherish (allegedly) freedom of expression and speech „ or, as we now see, the freedom of protest. I mention this for a couple of reasons. White nationalist Richard Spencer spoke Thursday at the University of Florida. He makes my skin crawl, and my earnest hope is that enough people feel the same way as to render him quickly irrelevant. He shad to be allowed to speak, though, because we love our country enough to believe it can withstand a bigot like him. Loving America also means National Football League players have the right to take a knee during the national anthem. People have the right to condemn that if they wish. They also have the right to protest the protest by tuning out the NFL on TV and refusing to buy tickets to the games. Lets be clear, though: It is not unpatriotic for the players to protest, despite what the president says. This isnt North Korea, where Otto Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years in prison, where he likely was beaten until he had irreversible brain damage, because he took a propaganda poster off a hotel wall. In this country, the government doesnt control the press so leaders can spew out propaganda to the citizens and keep them under oppression. I remember in the 1960s when people took to the streets because they realized their government was lying about the Vietnam war. There was a lot of ”agwaving then, too, and shouts of America, love it or leave it.Ž That sentiment is exactly the opposite of what America is about. Loving America means citizens can exercise their right to tell the government it is wrong. How would that go over in China? Dissidents can be imprisoned and tortured for their speech, religion, or just because the leaders felt like it. They have electionsŽ in China too, but if a candidate like Donald Trump came along, spewing insults and pushing a lie that the nations leader was actually born in another country, he likely would soon disappear „ never to be heard from again. NFL players who protest dont hate America. It started off as a way to highlight what Colin Kaepernick believed was racial injustice, but it now seems to be more of a showdown against President Trumps bombast. So be it. This is the country we live in, and I think its a great thing to love this nation because of what we stand for. You can question authority. People are allowed to protest. They can say whats on their minds, even if other people dont like it. This is America. Love it. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune, where he covered sports, politics and city government. The column moved on website does it really mean to love America? Florida Politics.comJoe Henderson To paraphrase Groucho Marx, President Donald Trump has a position on the Lamar Alexander/ Patty Murray health care deal, and if you dont like it, he has another one. Within hours, Trump veered wildly on the bipartisan compromise on Obamacare that the Tennessee Republican and the Washington Democrat forged at his personal urging. At times supportive, noncommittal and opposed, Trump “nally came out against, his “nal answer until further notice. It isnt unusual for a politician to wobble when confronted with a nettlesome issue or a shifting political environment. To live is to maneuver,Ž said the great 20thcentury conservative Whittaker Chambers. Its downright weird, though, for a president to rapidly switch sides on something he gave every indication that he wanted. The Trump administration has formidable obstacles in the way of substantive success „ a slender Senate majority, lack of staf“ng, an unrelenting opposition „ but none looms quite as large as the fact that Trump himself has no idea how he wants to govern. Trumps decision to end Obamacares cost-sharing reduction payments made sense as a political strategy only if he wanted to pressure congressional Republicans into a bipartisan deal. The termination of the payments wasnt going to discom“t the Democrats, who could scream sabotageŽ and blame Trump and Republicans for every failing of Obamacare going forward. It was nervous Republicans who were going to feel compelled to remove the political heat by propping up Obamacare. It seemed that this is precisely what Trump wanted. The president initially took credit for forcing Republicans and Democrats to talk about a health care deal. Yet he turned around and opposed the deal, saying he couldnt support bailing outŽ insurance companies. Trump cant decide who he wants to be. As a matter of substance (malleable and nonideological) and self-image (the ultimate deal-maker), he should be with Republican moderates. This is the Trump who encourages Lamar Alexander to get together with Patty Murray, and talks a DACA deal with Chuck and Nancy. As a matter of affect (unapologetically outrageous) and sensibility (thoroughly anti-establishment), he should be with the House Freedom Caucus. This is the Trump who pulls the plug on CSR payments over the advice of more cautious advisers and releases immigration principles that will never be realized in any bipartisan agreement. Which of these Trumps predominates depends on which meeting the president happens to be in. At the moment, pro-Trump operatives want to go out and kill elected Republicans who dont support the Trump agenda, even though its vague what exactly that is and its subject to constant change. Alexander is as sensibly establishment as GOP senators come, and thought he was not just supporting the Trump agenda, but doing the presidents bidding. Is he a friend, or an enemy, or a befuddled would-be ally? In terms of internal Republican politics, if nothing else, it suits Trump to be up for grabs. Both major factions within the party are vying for his affections. Steve Bannon wants to persuade the president to support a crusade on behalf of True Trumpism(TM); Mitch McConnell wants the president to steer clear of dubious candidates and show a little discipline. Trump is happy to keep a foot in each camp. He can say nice things about Bannon but suggest hes not on board with everything hes doing, while at the same time touting his great relationship with McConnell, yet prodding him on Twitter whenever he feels like it. Trumps approach keeps everyone guessing and keeps him from getting pinned down, but it is no way to lead a party. This is why Trumps strong suit is things he can do on his own, namely culture-war battles, “ghts with the news media and other critics, and executive actions. These dont involve many moving parts and dont require much constancy. For Trump, very little is ever truly ruled out or ruled in, and before long, a bipartisan health care deal will surely again strike his fancy.

Our Town Page 10 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSSarasota County set to begin Irma reviewFormer FEMA head to help grade countys responseSARASOTA „ When it comes to getting someone to lead the review of the countys response to Hurricane Irma, Sarasota County is bringing in the best. Former Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator and Florida Emergency Management Director Craig Fugate has agreed to lead the after-action review requested by County Administrator Tom Harmer. Harmer told County Commissioners two weeks ago he was in discussions with the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and the Barancik Foundation to conduct an after-action report to review the countys actions before and during the storm. The two foundations have agreed to pay Fugate for his work to facilitate two sessions with county staff and other stakeholders in the response effort such as the school board, the sheriffs of“ce and the municipalities. Those sessions will begin next month and result in key “ndings, recommendations and next steps, according to a county press release. Fugate will then be joined be joined by three emergency management personnel from across the state to conduct a peer review of the work produced from the facilitated sessions. Those professionals are: Alan Harris, emergency management director for Seminole County; Manny Soto, emergency management director for the city of Orlando; and Jonathan Lord, deputy director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management. A full, “nal report is due in early 2018. Fugate headed the Floridas emergency management division from 2001-2009, leading the states response during the tumultuous hurricane seasons of 2004-05. Following FEMAs disastrous response to Hurricane Katrina, President Barrack Obama wanted a top professional to head the agency, and tapped Fugate based upon his track record in Florida. Fugate served as the FEMA administrator from 2009-2017. The decision by the foundations to pay Fugate came after Commissioner Nancy Detert expressed her opposition to paying a facilitator to review the countys actions during Irma. I think you did a great job,Ž Detert said at the time. We had maybe a couple of little hiccups. ƒ Im not interested in paying a facilitator to tell us what we did right or wrong.Ž According to the news release, the county will use emergency management grants to pay for any services in preparing the “nal report. The three peer reviewers have agreed to conduct the review at no charge to the county, but the county will pay their travel expenses for coming to the county. This is an opportunity to bring all of our partners together and gather input from some of the most well-respected emergency management experts in the nation,Ž Sarasota County Emergency Services Director Rich Collins said per the news release. Their feedback will be invaluable in helping our community be even better prepared in the event that disaster strikes.Ž Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENT AP FILE PHOTOThen President Barack Obama talks with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate before speaking about the government shutdown during a visit to FEMA headquarters in Washington, Monday, Oct. 7, 2013.

The FBA is the governing body for band programs across the state and also rate bands on performance ability. On Saturday, students from across District 11 participated in the annual marching festival at Charlotte High School. According to Wing, marching bands will be judged on their halftime performances. They earn ratings (for) three categories,Ž Wing said. Students are judged for visual performance, percussion and color guard and dance. Each band will perform their routine, which according to Wing the biggest change every year is the music and the number of students performing. Music varies by band, some will do Broadway medleys, others will do pop and rock hits and some “lm scores. Its a way to showcase all the hard work they have done,Ž he said. Wing says the district is proud of their students and the work they have done, especially with the days missed because of Hurricane Irma. The event on Saturday also featured a performance by all of the Charlotte County middle school bands playing the Star-Spangled BannerŽ ahead of the “rst band playing at 4:45 p.m. Along with showcasing the bands talent, the event also serves as a way to get middle school students interested in the high school programs across the districts. Weve done a big push to get middle school kids there with free entrance vouchers,Ž Wing said.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 E/N/C Our Town Page 13 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSPALM ISLAND „ Maybe, because he and his brother Gar grew up in a small Canadian prairie town, somewhere north of North Dakota, Dean Beckstead believes hes living in a paradise. In the 1970s, the Beckstead brothers envisioned what would become the iconic Palm Island Resort on the north end of Knight Island, just off the coast of Englewood. Dean, now 74, still calls Palm Island home. When I say there was nothing here, I mean there was nothing here,Ž Beckstead recalled the island in the 1970s. He emphasized the word nothing.Ž When we “rst stepped foot on Palm Island, it was the last large (undeveloped) Gulf-front parcel left in private ownership.Ž The Becksteads originally bought 168 acres with two miles of beachfront on the island. Theyve since donated to the Lemon Bay Conservancy 10 acres adjoining preserve lands on Thornton Key. Most developers at the time could not envision what the Becksteads saw. € € € Before there was an Intracoastal Waterway, a small bridge linked the island with the mainland. When the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dredged the channel for the Intracoastal in the early 1960s, the bridge came down and was never replaced, leaving the island isolated. Where other developers would have wanted a new bridge to the island and the ability to build high-rises with condos for thousands of residents, the Becksteads had a different vision. That was wonderful,Ž Beckstead said of the bridge-less island. He now owns the ferry service on and off the island, which is just north of the Don Pedro Island State Park. If you grow up in a small town on the prairie, you look at things a little differently than if you grew up in a big city with high rises and everything,Ž he said. Before coming to Palm Island, Deans brother Gar“eld GarŽ Beckstead spearheaded the development of the exclusive Useppa Island Club in 1971. Useppas isolation south of Boca Grande Pass between Cayo Costa and Pine Island was its attraction. Useppa was as remote as you could get at the time,Ž Dean recalled. We thought (Palm Island) would be just like Useppa with beach front. We looked at it as a very laidback, out-island that we could develop like we did on Useppa.ŽLess is moreThe resort property was “rst platted as Palm Island Estates and originally allowed the development of 1,500 units. That was down-zoned to 940 units prior to the Becksteads buying the property. We thought that was ridiculous,Ž he said. There was no way you could build 940 residential units out there.Ž Beckstead called upon the University of Florida for an environmental study that was conducted by Peter Pritchard of the Florida Audubon Society. Based upon that study, the Becksteads drafted a planned unit development that included singlefamily, multi-family and commercial units. Tom Frame „ who would later serve as Charlotte County administrator from 1988 to 1994 „ was the countys zoning director at a time. The county had just “nished its “rst compilation of its zoning codes. Beckstead described Frame as being incredulous when he proposed limiting the resort development to 450 units. They couldnt believe we wanted to go through the planned development process „ which included public hearings „ and wanted to down-zone to 450 units,Ž Beckstead said. It took months for those guys to believe us. In those days, (developers) would say, I want more.Ž Beckstead believes Palm Island garnered its approvals because his plans were logical and prudentŽ and he didnt ask for the world.Ž He also said he accepted county conditions on the development. Not everyone welcomed the resort to the island. Over the Memorial Day weekend in 1983, an arsonist torched the “rst two units before they were completed. Authorities never charged anyone with the crime, Beckstead said. It was pretty tough the “rst two years,Ž he said. But we moved on from there.ŽNiche marketBeckstead knows life on a bridge-less island is not for everyone. He thinks the resort attracts 20 percent of those in the market for homes would be interested in Palm Island. They want a total change of venue,Ž Beckstead said of those who buy onto the island. They dont want the bright lights and glitter. The other 80 percent thinks its too remote,Ž he said. Development on the entire bridge-less island is set. What you see is what you get,Ž Beckstead said. It really hasnt changed in 20 years,Ž he said. Its a real island. You get to it by boat, and that makes it unique.Ž The exclusivity of island living and living at the resort comes with a price. Single-family homes at the resort can range from $500,000 to $2.3 million for beachfront units. Multifamily units run between $200,000 and $900,000. The resort now has 250 developed units. Beckstead expects the resort will grow to 300 or 325 units at build out.Shrinking expectationsBeckstead doesnt believe the mainland of Placida will see the drive for as much development as was proposed before the 2007 recession. Already, he said, expectations are being downsized. A lot of the units for this area were taken out,Ž he said. You dont see a lot of high density left here to build.Ž The recession, Beckstead believes, cut potential density along Placida Road in half „ no future canyons of condos „ and Placida will be better for that. Beckstead has other business investments, including Leverocks and Rum Bay restaurants, but theyre all related to the resort. Hes neither selling off nor expanding his interests. I have all that I can say grace over now,Ž Beckstead said.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comPalm Island Resort made its markBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER By 1983, work had begun on the Palm Island Resort along what was an undeveloped 2-mile stretch of Gulf beach-front.PHOTOS PROVIDEDThis aerial photo shows Don Pedro Island in 1978, before it was developed.

Our Town Page 14 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Editors Note: This story about the Lipstein family was published Oct. 15 in the Sun. It contained an incorrect name. We have decided to republish the story with the correct name. ENGLEWOOD „ Blake Lipstein costarred with Manasota Key for a recent episode of the HGTV series Beachfront Bargain Hunt.Ž The episode, filmed in March, focuses on Lipstein purchasing his first home, a condominium on Manasota Key. The online TV Guide website describes the episode, entitled A Life for Me on Manasota KeyŽ: Blake grew up on Manasota Key, Florida, and moved back two years ago to help with his familys real estate business. Everything he loves is on the island, so he is ready to buy a permanent beach condo in the area for under $300,000.Ž The real estate agent providing Blake a choice between four condos is his father, Dave Lipstein, the ownerbroker for Manasota Key Realty. We were contacted by HGTV and asked whether we had a property or group (of properties) that would qualify for the episode they were trying to produce,Ž Dave said. We are an underpriced pocket on the West Coast of Florida.Ž Over the years, the TV show representatives periodically touched based with Dave. In its second season, a Beachfront Bargain Hunt episode featured an Iowa couple looking for a summer home on Manasota Key. One of the properties in that episode was managed by Manasota Key Realty. The HGTV premise often calls for a couple who is house hunting. Blake is single, so he was joined by his god-sister,Ž Cheyenne Alford. Her godfather is Dave, and the episode includes a photo of Blake and Cheyenne sitting together as small children, when they were 3 or 4 years old. The episode opens with an explanation of how Blake is looking for a condo, one primarily with access to the Gulf. Cheyenne accompanies Blake as the two inspect and evaluate each condo unit, articulating what they see. Blake said the show isnt scripted. However, the director would film several takes and offer direction on what Cheyenne and Blake should emphasize. The entire episode took a week to film. Interestingly, HGTV used pseudonyms for the condominium complexes. The Lipsteins didnt know why, and no HGTV representative could be reached for comment. Dave speculated it might be to avoid giving undue publicity for one complex over another or to protect the innocent.Ž Interspersed among the househunting scenes, the episode features several shots and descriptions of Manasota Key and its hometown feel and natural ambiance. A scene shows Blake skurfing,Ž riding a skimboard in the wake of an outboard along Ski Alley. In another scene, Blake relaxes with friends at a drum circle on Englewood Beach. One scene showed Blake ready to ride a stand-up paddleboard with his Welsh corgi. The results of nationwide exposure of Manasota Key were immediate. The realty office received numerous calls and texts from people interested in Manasota Key. Some people never heard of Manasota Key or Englewood until they watched the HGTV episode. We had calls from all over the country,Ž Dave said. Not all the calls were from strangers. We were surprised about the response „ even comment from people we know from the community,Ž he said.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comManasota Key a shining HGTV starBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER Blake Lipstein is pictured in a scene from a recent episode of HGTV Beachfront Bargain HuntŽ that featured condominiums on Manasota Key.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 E/N/C Our Town Page 17 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSMURDOCK „ Sales tax projects, and the revenue needed to pay for them, are coming to fruition at a brisk pace. Through September, the county has collected 21 percent more revenue than projected since the 2014 sales tax program was launched. Starting in January 2015, Charlotte has received $65.4 million in local option sales tax instead of the anticipated $54 million, said Travis Mortimer, county capital projects manager. This is a favorable picture. Revenues are strong,Ž he said. Adding to that rosy outlook is a $4.5 million surplus left over from the 2008 sales tax extension, which mostly went toward roads and sidewalks. Only the Sheehan Boulevard sidewalk remains on the to-do list, with $1.2 million already allocated for that project. Recent road projects completed from the 2008 sales tax program include Edgewater Drive Phase 2, Midway Boulevard and micro-tunnels, Burnt Store Road Phase 3, Gasparilla Road and Placida Road. Regarding the 2014 sales tax initiative, all 20 targeted projects are in various stages of development, some are under budget and a few pose “scal challenges. The Olean Boulevard expansion, originally pegged at nearly $10 million, is facing a potential $500,000 de“cit, Mortimer said. Olean Boulevard will be widened from a three-lane road to “ve lanes, from U.S. 41 to Easy Street. However, the road project already is up to $10.3 million by extending improvements from Harbor Boulevard to Easy Street. And another half-million may be needed to coordinate with other Parkside projects, he said. In “guring out the Olean expansion, of“cials are taking into account nearby road projects to lower overall costs. Utility improvements planned for Aaron Street and Gertrude Avenue, along with the “nal paving of Elkcam Boulevard, must all be done in a certain order to save on costs, Mortimer said. This complicated planning process is made even more dif“cult when considering the various projects involve different funding sources such as sales tax, gas tax and Community Development Block Grants, along with revenue from the Parkside Community Redevelopment Agency and municipal service bene“t unit. It is really complex, but we can do it,Ž he said. In addition, the Olean project needs another $1.8 million for associated utility improvements. Not wanting to use sales tax money or general revenue funds for the utility work, commissioners opted to borrow this money. Another sales tax project that may require more money is the new recreation center at North Charlotte Regional Park. This project was tabbed to cost $8.13 million, but could need a budget adjustment of $750,000 for further site development, Mortimer said. In addition, he said a tight $3.54 million budget for the expansion of three existing recreation centers „ South County Regional Park, Harold Avenue and Tringali „ may need an additional $350,000 for enhanced improvements. Mortimer emphasized that these projects are still in development and cost estimates could change. Fortunately, a number of sales tax projects are coming in under budget. They include: Piper Road North ($6 million under budget), public safety digital radio system ($2 million), Sheriff District 1 headquarters ($30,000), Veterans Memorial Park ($25,000), McGuire Park ($14,000) and the Charlotte County Jail in“rmary ($20,000). Roger Warden, projects manager for county facilities, said the jail expansion for the medical wing, expected to begin construction next summer, would also add to the backbone of the infrastructure,Ž including upgrading security and the air conditioning system. Meanwhile, the extension of Piper Road North will be breaking ground later this year. Piper Road and the Olean Boulevard expansion are both currently in design. The county was expected to amass $108 million over the six-year length of the 2014 sales tax extension for planned sales tax infrastructure projects and amenities. But with several projects costing less than predicted, Mortimer now forecasts that just $100 million will be needed. This has been a very good success story,Ž Commissioner Chris Constance said. In fact, if sales tax revenues continue on their current pace, the county could proceed with so-called Tier II projects. While these six projects, with a total price tag of $14 million, were not given top priority, Mortimer said they would be signi“cant assets to the county if money becomes available. Tier II projects are always out there on our radar,Ž he said. County Attorney Janette Knowlton explained that the county is not tied to any particular order of Tier II projects, or legally bound to complete them at all. However, she said it would be prudent for commissioners to follow through on their original pledge. You sold [the sales tax program] based on that, and I would recommend you stick with the plan,Ž Knowlton said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comSales tax projects, revenues acceleratingBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER SALES TAX PROJECTS AND BUDGETSTransportation/Infrastructure Piper Road North: $22.41M Olean Boulevard widening: $9.91M Quality of Life Ann Dever Memorial Regional Park Recreation Center: $9.04M North Charlotte Regional Park Recreation Center: $8.13M Harbor Walk/Gateway Project: $4.27M Multiuse trails and on-road bicycle lanes: $3.8M Recreation center renovations (South County Regional Park, Harold Avenue and Tringali): $3.54M McGuire Park Phase 1: $2.1M Oyster Creek Pool Splash Pad: $260,000 South County Library and Archive: $6.9M Family Services Center Phases I and II: $7.1M Veterans Memorial Park in Rotonda West: $692,000 Public Safety Digital radio system: $10M Jail expansion for medical wing: $9.5M West County Annex replacement: $6.5M Sheriff District 1 (West County) headquarters: $3.8M Fiber-optic cables to fire stations: $143,000 Schools Front entry access control: $1.01M Classroom security function lock sets: $676,223 Wireless access points: $423,900 Tier II projects, if funding available: Cattle Dock Boat Ramp: $4.49M North Charlotte Regional Park aquatic center: $4.44M Toledo Blade Boulevard widening: $2.64M Charlotte Harbor Trails and Signage: $1M Port Charlotte Beach Sailing Center: $918,500 Charlotte County Justice Center generator upgrade: $350,000Haunted HouseState College of Florida„ Venices Pop Culture Club hosts its annual Haunted House, 7-10 p.m. Oct. 23 to 26 and 7-11 p.m. Oct. 27, at the Lakeside Pavilion at SCF Venice, 8000 S.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 E/N/C Our Town Page 21 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS All the news you needSEVENDAYSAWEEKOnly in Each H alloween, the controversy over black cats as magical, evil or bad luck re-emerges. Pictures of black cats as devil cats or black kittens wearing witches hats are exploited. Whether you believe there is any truth to these myths may depend on just how superstitious you are. It is true that Halloween does pose a dark side for these particular felines. The perception of danger to black cats at Halloween, by witchcraft, satanic rituals or other forms of animal cruelty, cause some humane societies to refuse to allow their adoption on or before the holiday. Cats were gods in Egypt and sacred in ancient Greece. However, throughout the middleages, black cats were tortured for being the color of night, which is when most witchery and evil took place. Certain religions even considered black cats to be Lucifers messengers, and again the black cat paid the price. Black cats are considered a good luck charm in the United Kingdom and Asia. In parts of France they are thought to attract wealth into any house where they are loved and well fed. There are other feline myths, whether they are black, white, calico or any color. Does a cat have nine lives? Even though they may eat 9-Lives cat food for dinner, they still only have one life. Their ability to make impossible leaps and jumps, survive falls and be able to maneuver in impossible ways encourages that belief. Fact is, once they are gone there wont be eight more opportunities at life. And no, they dont always land on their feet when they fall. Again they do have the ability to manipulate their bodies very quickly, but they also can land awkwardly and injure themselves, especially from greater heights. Does a bell on an outside cat keep birds and other small animals safe? No. Just ask the Audubon Society. Birds do not have an instinct for associating bells with imminent danger, plus cats can move very quickly, even carrying a bell. The bell wont save the birds, and it may reveal your cats location to larger predators like coyotes and bobcat, who could eat the cat and the bell. These myths and superstitions are not going away anytime soon, but it is good to know the difference between reality and fantasy when it comes to the safety of cats of any color. I think, regardless of your beliefs, it is best to keep your cat inside and safe during the spooky Halloween holiday and every other day of the year. That is no myth.

He has more than 40 years of experience in animal care, control and welfare, including 15 years with The Humane Society of the United States.

Our Town Page 22 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 After two cupcake victories for Port Charlotte, the Pirates will quickly have to turn the page to begin preparing for the Big One.Ž Although, if you ask coach Jordan Ingman, next weeks rivalry game against Charlotte is just another game on the schedule. We prepare hard every week, and we need to make sure we dont let people outside of the program try to in”uence anything in our program,Ž Ingman said. You have to approach every single game the same way, because if you dont, youll come out tight and you cant over-think things.Ž At the very least, the anticipation of the atmosphere is going to make for an entertaining week of preparation. Im so excited and pumped up,Ž quarterback Paul Barnes said. Its going to be a fun game. I hope everybody comes out.Ž The Pirates won Friday night 60-0 over Island Coast, setting multiple school records, including largest margin of victory and most lopsided shutout. Port Charlotte did so by completely shutting down the Gators. Island Coast managed just 100 yards of offense, and never really threatened to score. Because of three combined touchdowns on defense and special times, the Pirates didnt begin their “fth offensive possession until roughly four minutes remained in the third quarter. On a Port Charlotte team that has been stricken with injuries this season, some good news was the return of Marc Jean-Louis Friday night. The running back broke his arm in the “rst week of the season, and instantly made an impact, even on just a pair of carries. We just wanted to get his feet wet before next week,Ž Ingman said. As you can see, he brings a dynamic we havent had on the outside. His speed on the edge really makes defenses respect the pitch. It was really awesome to have him back tonight.Ž Two carries might not seem like much, but it was signi“cant when you consider Port Charlotte ran only 30 plays in the entire game.HAPPY HOMECOMINGHomecoming and athletics pretty much go hand-in-hand at Charlotte High School. Last year, quarterback/ cornerback Dee Hicks was named homecoming king while volleyball player Jessica Moore was crowned queen. Friday nights ceremony during halftime of the Tarpons 37-12 win over Cape Coral wasnt much different. Lineman Jack Andreu took king honors while volleyball outside hitter Emily Vaughn, who is also Andreus cousin, was chosen as queen. Just like Hicks the year before, seeing Andreu voted as king was extra special for Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop. It was pretty cool having one of your kids win it,Ž Waldrop said. Hes a great kid, has a great family and hes a great football player. It was pretty neat to see.Ž The Tarpons desperately needed a win following last weeks 41-0 loss to North Fort Myers. Another loss basically would have eliminated Charlotte from the playoff race, and Waldrop said the homecoming atmosphere helped pump his players. Several former Tarpons were roaming the sidelines throughout the night, including current FIU players DVonte and GVonte Price. Moore also was in attendance and recognized before the new king and queen were named. This was a great homecoming win and a big homecoming weekend,Ž Waldrop said. Homecoming is really special here for a lot of reasons. We had a lot of people who were in town watching the game and having some of those ex-players who were in the locker room „ we had about 30 of them there tonight „ made it even cooler.ŽMISSED OPPORTUNITYLemon Bay twice was turned away inside the Booker 5-yard line on Friday night by interceptions, allowing the Tornadoes to escape with a 26-21 district victory. We had the ball right there, but didnt get it there,Ž Lemon Bay coach Don Southwell said. One of the interceptions looked to be a sure touchdown pass from quarterback Hayden Wolff to Thomas Cheney, but the ball bounced off the receivers chest and into the arms of Bookers Anthony Thomas early in the fourth quarter. Wolff connected with his brother, Aiden, on a touchdown pass with 2:13 left in the game that drew the Manta Rays within five points, but they could get no closer despite getting the ball back after a defensive stop. Colby McCauley, who had a rushing touchdown for Lemon Bay, hauled in a nice sideline catch on a fourth-and-16 play to keep the fourth-quarter drive alive. Keegan Marinola provided a power option in the Lemon Bay backfield to compliment the 5-foot-7, 150-pound McCauley and he responded with 93 yards.Sun Correspondent Chuck Ballaro contributed to this report.LOCAL SPORTS Contact usJordan Kroeger € Staff writer jk or 941-206-1185 | Bryan Levine € Staff writer blevine@ or 941-206-1122 | Rick Nolte € Sports editor or 941-206-1175 | EMAIL: FAX: 941-629-2085SunCoast Sports NowWhen news breaks, we blog it at www.suncoastsports Like us and share our photos on Facebook: Follow us on Twitter for live updates and breaking news: @SunCoastSports How to ƒSubmit a story idea: Email or call Rick Nolte at 941-206-1175.

BRADENTON „ With both DeSoto County and Bayshore struggling on offense, Friday nights district game “gured to be a low-scoring affair with the winner likely being the team making the fewest mistakes. Thats just what happened as DeSoto earned its “rst road win of the season in a 16-11 decision to spoil the Bruins Homecoming. The Bulldogs converted the biggest Bayshore error into the game-winning touchdown in the second half. Senior Kendhal Stewart blocked a punt and Ty Wesley returned the ball to the 1-yard line. I caught a cramp otherwise I wouldve scored,Ž said Wesley, who celebrated his 16th birthday on Friday. Instead, it was Arnold Mele who carried the ball into the end zone. Jose Nuevo followed with the conversion kick to set the “nal score. The Bulldogs scored the games “rst points on the “rst play after the opening kickoff. Mele rolled to his right and found a wide open Wesley, who rambled 58 yards with the pass for the touchdown. The Bruins countered with a touchdown less than four minutes later, taking the lead wi th a two-point conversion. A “eld goal early into the second quarter stretched the Bruins lead to 11-6. The Bulldogs drew within 11-9 at halftime when Nuevo hit from 27 yards. Penalties were a big part of the game with none bigger than one that took the Bruins from the Bulldogs 15-yard line back to mid“eld after a block in the back on a long punt return. A high snap and fumble on the next play led to a second-and-24 situation and the Bruins could never recover. There were three onside kicks in the game with DeSoto recovering all three, including one by Wesley. The only deep kick by the Bruins was returned 52 yards by Mele. I knew I was going to come out here and do something for my team,Ž Wesley said. I knew it was my birthday when I woke up this morning, but I was more focused on football than my birthday. I had a feeling we were going to come out here and get the dub (win). We have Hardee next week ... we have to come to practice Monday with no slacking. We have to be ready to go.Ž The longest running rivalry in Florida with more than 100 games played will be at Hardee.DeSoto County bounces BayshoreBy STEVE KNAPPSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY STEVE KNAPPQuarterback Arnold Mele threw for one touchdown, ran for another and returned a punt 52 yards to lead DeSoto Countys 16-11 win.

Our Town Page 24 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSArcadia Fall Rodeo ends long run at historic arenaNew facility opens in MarchAn Arcadia granddaddy seemed a bit sad on Saturday. While lively in spirit under a cooler October sun, the Arcadia Fall Rodeo this weekend is the last at the historic arena, leaving traces of nostalgia and mourning. Rodeo events when gates open at 11 a.m. today will end a run at the current outdoor facility along U.S. Route 17 that stretches back to 1960. Roots of the huge Arcadia All-Flordia Championship Rodeo date to the late 1920s, however, when cowboys at mid-state cattle ranches roped and rode against one another, the event more for ranch honor than prizes. Modern cowboys, by contrast, can compete for cash that can make a small number of them very rich. Because of its history in south Florida, the Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo is loosely termed the grand-daddyŽ of such events east of the Mississippi River. Organizers hope to use the old arena for staging livestock for the new Mosaic Arena east of downtown, perhaps concerts and smaller events, officials on Saturday said. There was an undertone of losing an old friend yesterday, the first of two final rodeos at the arena. A youth rodeo next weekend will officially close the Arcadia venue. Its bittersweet,Ž said Don Hall, president of the Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo Association, the volunteer group charged with organizing events at the outdoor venue that replaced the old Welles rodeo arena. Arcadias first rodeo in 1928 was run by the citys American Legion Post 11. I mean, I was raised here ƒ I guess the [Arcadia] arena has run its course.Ž Cowboys, vendors, staff, volunteers and drivers dropping off steers and bucking horses were in town early Saturday, finishing work for the Fall Rodeo that began two weeks ago, said Alfred Higginbotham, helping ready the arena for the 1 p.m. start of the rodeo shootout, a fun event of men and women in saloon girl, sheriff and bad-guy outfits. Sure,Ž Higginbotham said of the historic arena, surveying the place, were gonna miss it. But with the new arena, you wont worry about rain and all that. Good rodeos have to change with the times.Ž The signature event in town is the Arcadia AllFlorida Championship Rodeo in March, which this year over several days brought about 18,000 visitors. A rodeo of the countrys top riders and ropers translates to meals, hotel stays, vendor sales, parking, cool beverages and lots of local spending. Organizers estimate the first Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo in March will bring more than 20,000 visitors. The Arcadia rodeo is huge for DeSoto County,Ž said Willie Wood, a former Association president, on Saturday, pausing to reflect on the history of the old arena while lugging spare ribs to a VIP building. Everyone in this community comes together to make it happen.Ž The new $9 million Mosaic Arena a mile of so outside the downtown will seat nearly 10,000 visitors on 18-inch-wide seats under an enclosed roof. The old arena, beat up by time and Hurricane Charley, holds about 6,000 on wood bleacher seats. While Irma delayed construction, the Mosaic Arena is expected to open in time for the March rodeo. Arcadias merchants, ranchers, growers and other boosters see the Mosaic as a bigger and more sophisticated attraction, a concert venue, for instance. So while the last rodeo offered a note of gloom for a lost touchstone, there is great hope for the next chapter in a very long story. We are very much looking forward to the future,Ž said James Parker, a retired DeSoto County circuit judge and longtime Rodeo Association board member. A few minutes before the loud banging of blank guns at the shootout, when tall cowboys in white straw hats and pretty cowgirls in pink strolled to the arenas wood seats, other working cowboys were running through a list of arena duties, pausing in a prayer circle, and then heading off. One of the crew, pickup cowboy Aaron Hudson, was circumspect about this final rodeo, a place hed visited and worked at from childhood. Its the end of one era,Ž Hudson said, and the beginning of another.ŽBy CRAIG GARRETTARCADIAN EDITOR Mary Johnson and Barney Johnson are lead players at the Arcadia Rodeo Shootout, a fun series of traditional Old West re-enactments dating in Florida to the 1920s. Seminoles and Florida cowboys performed in events in the 1930s. Barney is the announcer and a veteran rodeo performer.

Above: In this Nov. 22, 1963 le photo, President John F. Kennedy waves from his car in a motorcade in Dallas.WASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump says he doesnt plan to block the scheduled release of thousands of never publicly seen government documents related to President John F. Kennedys assassination. Subject to the receipt of further information,Ž he wrote in a Saturday morning tweet, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classi“ed JFK FILES to be opened.Ž The National Archives has until Thursday to disclose the remaining “les related to Kennedys 1963 assassination. The trove is expected to include more than 3,000 documents that have never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that have been previously released but with redactions. Congress mandated in 1992 that all assassination documents be released within 25 years, but Trump has the power to block them on the grounds that making them public would harm intelligence or military operations, law enforcement or foreign relations. Thank you. This is the correct decision. Please do not allow exceptions for any agency of government,Ž tweeted Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics and author of a book about Kennedy, who has urged the president to release the “les. JFK “les have been hidden too long.Ž The anticipated release has had scholars and armchair detectives buzzing. But its unlikely the documents will contain any big revelations on a tragedy that has stirred conspiracy theories for decades, Judge John Tunheim told The Associated Press last month. Tunheim was chairman of the independent agency in the 1990s that made public many assassination records and decided how long others could remain secret. Sabato and other JFK scholars believe the trove of “les may, however, provide insight into assassin Lee Trump has no plan to block release of JFK recordsBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESSBEIJING „ Li Heping spent his career trying to hold Chinese Communist Party of“cials accountable for their darkest behavior. He believed in an authority higher than the party „ Chinas legal system. And for that, he suffered tremendously. Since the late 1990s, Li, a human rights lawyer, had defended Chinas most persecuted groups: dissidents, petitioners, victims of land grabs and forced demolitions, church leaders and practitioners of the banned spiritual group Falun Gong. Then came the 709Ž crackdown „ named for July 9, 2015, the night it began „ when authorities detained or interrogated more than 300 lawyers and their associates, including Li. They held Li without charge for nearly two years. In May, they let him go „ on the condition he remains silent. What my husband has gone through during that 22 months in jail was relentless, inhuman, perverted and unthinkable,Ž said his wife, Wang Qiaoling, who has emerged as an outspoken advocate for rule of law during her husbands enforced silence. The police will torture Chinas rising authoritarianism has a stark human costBy JONATHAN KAIMANLOS ANGELES TIMESMADRID „ The entire regional government of Catalonia should be dismissed and new elections should be held there within six months, the Spanish government said Saturday. The government asked to dismiss secessionist Catalonian President Carles Puigdemont and all his ministers, and to bring regional public media under Madrids direct control. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said he was not asking to suspend the autonomy or the self-government of Catalonia,Ž but to dismiss the people who have placed this self-government outside the law.Ž Despite Rajoys, however, the proposals represent the removal of key powers held by the region under Catalan home rule, and mark an escalation of Spains biggest political crisis since a failed coup in 1981. As it acquires control of Catalan ministries, Madrid will assume responsibility over security, public order, “nance, tax and budgetary measures, and telecommunications, a government statement indicated. The ability to remove Catalonias powers is granted to the central TEHRAN, Iran „ The nuclear deal between Iran and world powers cant be renegotiated despite U.S. President Donald Trumps objection to the terms, Irans deputy foreign minister said Saturday. That includes all annexes, clauses and proposed additions, Abbas Araghchi was quoted as saying by the state-owned Islamic Republic News Agency. The U.S. has already violated the accord through actions that undermine its implementation, he said. We say clearly and unequivocally, no possibility exists for any negotiations regarding the nuclear deal or its annexes or any additions,Ž Araghchi said at a conference in Moscow. U.S. House of Representatives is considering legislation that would toughen sanctions against Irans missile program, which wasnt covered by the 2015 nuclear agreement.

Page 2 The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 NATION CLEVELAND „ Ohio State University has denied a request to rent space for an appearance by white nationalist Richard Spencer, citing risks to public safety. An attorney representing Ohio State said in a letter sent Friday that the university consulted with law enforcement and considered Spencers appearance at the University of Florida earlier in the week before deciding to turn down the request from Cameron Padgett, a Georgia university student organizing a tour of campuses by Spencer. The University values freedom of speech,Ž the letter said. Nonetheless, the University has determined that it is not presently able to accommodate Mr. Padgetts request to rent space at the university due to substantial risks to public safety, as well as material and substantial disruption.Ž Earlier Friday, a lawyer for Spencers associates said he planned to follow through on a threat to “le a lawsuit against Ohio State. The die is cast,Ž attorney Kyle Bristow said in a Twitter message written in Latin. The university said last week it couldnt accommodate a Spencer event as requested on Nov. 15 for safety reasons but would decide by the end of this week whether viable alternatives existed. Bristow said hed sue the university if it didnt decide by 5 p.m. Friday to allow Spencer to speak. The University of Cincinnati was faced with a similar deadline but decided last week to allow Spencer to hold an event there. Both universities were contacted last month about allowing Spencer to visit but delayed making “nal decisions until Bristow threatened to sue. The Ohio universities are the latest among a string of universities targeted for appearances by Spencer since he participated in an August white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that led to deadly violence. The Charlottesville rally left universities across the U.S. struggling to ensure campus safety in the face of recruiting efforts by white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups while balancing concerns over freedom of speech. Spencer spoke Thursday at the University of Florida, where counter demonstrators greatly outnumbered his supporters, drowned out his speech with anti-Nazi chants and booed him off the stage under the watchful eye of police of“cers in riot gear.

ATLANTA „ Georgia Rep. Betty Price says her comments on people with HIV that ignited a national “restorm were taken completely out of context.Ž Price, the wife of former U.S. Health Secretary Tom Price, was in a legislative committee meeting Tuesday when she asked a state health of“cial whether people with HIV could legally be quarantined. The Atlanta JournalConstitution reports Price said Saturday that she was just being provocative.Ž She said a health of“cial had presented that Georgia is second only to Louisiana in the rate of new infections. Part of the reason is that more than a third of Georgians with HIV are not receiving care for it. She said thats what sparked her rhetoricalŽ comments. I do not support a quarantine in this public health challenge and dilemma of undertreated HIV patients,Ž Price said in a statement. I do, however, wish to light a “re under all of us with responsibility in the public health arena „ a “re that will result in resolve and commitment to ensure that all of our fellow citizens with HIV will receive, and adhere to, a treatment regimen that will enhance their quality of life and protect the health of the public. I look forward to continuing to work with all to accomplish this goal.Ž Price, a Republican whose district includes parts of Atlantas northern suburbs, asked the head of the Georgia Department of Public Healths HIV Epidemiology Section about stopping the spread of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. What are we legally able to do? I dont want to say the quarantine word, but I guess I just said it,Ž Price can be seen asking the of“cial, Dr. Pascale Wortley, in a video of the study committee meeting on barriers to adequate health care. Is there an ability, since I would guess that public dollars are expended heavily in prophylaxis and treatment of this condition, so we have a public interest in curtailing the spread,Ž she continued. Are there any methods, legally, that we could do that would curtail the spread?Ž Like her husband, who resigned last month as Health and Human Services secretary after an outcry over his use of costly private planes for of“cial travel, Betty Price is a doctor. Her legislative biography says she worked as an anesthesiologist for more than two decades, served on the boards of the Medical Association of Atlanta and the Medical Association of Georgia and is a past president of the American Medical Womens Association in Atlanta. In 2015, Georgia ranked “fth highest in the country for the number of adults and adolescents living with HIV, according to a fact sheet on the states Department of Public Health website. The total number of people living with HIV infection in Georgia on Dec. 31 of that year was 54,574 and nearly twothirds of them lived in the Atlanta metro area. Project Q Atlanta, a website serving the citys gay community, was the “rst to report Prices comments.Georgia Rep. Price says HIV comments taken out of contextASSOCIATED PRESSHONOLULU „ Cans of Spam have become a common item thats being stolen from Honolulu stores and then sold on the streets for quick cash, according to authorities. Ra Long, who owns a convenience store in the city, said shoplifters have typically targeted alcohol in the past, but recently more cans of Spam have gone missing, Hawaii News Now reported. I mean you try to keep an eye on it, but if they run, you just cant leave the counter and chase them,Ž Long said. So you just gotta take the hit.Ž Honolulu police said they took a report of a man lifting a case of the canned meat from a store earlier this month. Kimo Carvalho, a spokesperson for the Institute for Human Services, said people are stealing Spam because its easy to sell. Its quick cash for quick drug money,Ž Carvalho said. Hawaiians eat millions of cans of Spam a year, the nations highest per-capita consumption of the processed meat, which is cobbled together from a mixture of pork shoulder, ham, sugar and salt. The states love affair with Spam began during World War II, when rationing created just the right conditions for the rise of a meat that needs no refrigeration and has a remarkably long shelf life (inde“nitely, the company says). Ann Kondo Corum, who grew up in Hawaii in the 1950s and has written several Spam-inspired cookbooks, has attributed Spams popularity partly to Hawaiis large Asian population. Asians eat a lot of rice. Spam is salty, and it goes well with rice,Ž she told The Associated Press in 2009.Honolulu store owners say thieves are targeting cans of SpamASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTO PROVIDED Three small earthquakes recorded in OklahomaRENFROW, Okla.

Protesters gathered for a noontime protest of a law enforcement conference being held at the citys convention center, carrying signs denouncing police and chanting slogans. Hours later, protesters marched a few blocks away to the statue of a former Philadelphia mayor and police commissioner that has spurred protests and vandalism. There, some protesters clashed with of“cers and several were wrestled to the ground and their hands secured behind them. Five were led to a waiting police van. A police spokeswoman con“rmed that there had been arrests but said she didnt know the exact number. She said two of“cers sustained minor injuries.Minneapolis approves regulations for short-term rentalsMINNEAPOLIS (AP) „ Minneapolis will begin regulating Airbnb and other short-term vacation rentals, a move the city wanted to get done before the 2018 Super Bowl. The Minneapolis City Council on Friday approved a pair of ordinances requiring those rental hosts to be licensed with the city. The process would allow the city to inspect properties and prohibit rentals. Individuals looking to rent a home, condominium or apartment where they live will need to get a $46 per year license. The rental fee would be waived if the owner continues to stay in the home while the guest is visiting. Airbnb issued a statement raising questions about the new rules, speci“cally the requirement that shortterm rental platforms prohibit unlicensed hosts from listing their units online or risk losing their license.Rangers investigating death at Harpers Ferry national parkSANDY HOOK, Md.

That means private attorneys must be hired to represent the other 17 inmates to avoid any possible con”icts of interest. Costs could run into the millions. The Public Defenders Of“ce gets only $4.6 million a year to hire outside attorneys. Legal observers say the defendants have little reason to plead guilty.

But inland Lake Okeechobee, the states 730-square mile liquid heart, also took a hit. Lake levels already high from the wettest rainy season in 86 years shot up 3 1‡2 feet, raising concerns about the shallow lakes aging dike. Marshy edges that provide nesting habitat for endangered snail kites and “shing holes for anglers disappeared under brown water. With tropical storm force winds swirling across the lake for more than 24 hours, dirty water mixed with polluted sediment on the lake bottom. About 5,300 acres of vegetation, made up mostly of cattails, was uprooted and tossed into the mix, eliminating a protective boundary that helps keep turbid water from the lakes interior away from its cleaner fringes. This past week, for the “rst time in weeks, water levels in the lake began receding. But the environmental consequences of Irma remain a concern. Turbidity in the lake itself, thats a situation thats going to persist for a while,Ž said environmental scientist Susan Gray, chief of Applied Sciences at the South Florida Water Management District. After 2004 and 05 (when “ve hurricanes hit Florida) it took a year and a half to clear up.Ž And all that dark water could cause even more submerged plants to die, said Audubon Floridas Lake Okeechobee science coordinator, Paul Gray. Pretty ugly out there right now,Ž he said in an email, predicting the plants would not survive the high water for so long. Irma spread tropical storm-force winds across Lake Okeechobee for at least 30 hours Sept 10 and 11, mixing dirty lake water with sediment at the bottom of the lake polluted from decades of runoff from neighborhoods, farms and ranches to the north. Scientists are now worried that the turbid water will remain and could damage plants and animals along the lakes fringes. To the south, the situation is more dire in water conservation areas where tree islands provide shelter for deer, raccoons, opossums and nesting wading birds across more than 1,300 square miles, said the districts Everglades chief scientist, Fred Sklar. While the threat of ”ooding neighborhoods is far lower, the hits to wildlife could be unprecedented, he said. By Sklars estimate, by the time the district can drain water, the islands will probably have been underwater for 288 days, about three weeks longer than the previous record. While its not certain, Sklar expects a number to die and become ghost islands, losing habitat that can take centuries to build. No one has successfully brought back a tree island that has turned into a ghost. That doesnt mean its impossible,Ž he said. But you have to get the hydrology right “rst.Ž Getting the hydrology right is part of the slow-moving Everglades restoration work being done by the district and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A move by lawmakers this year to speed up work on a 14,000-acre reservoir is supposed to provide some relief during the rainy season, when dirty lake water fouled by decades of farming, ranching and urban run-off gets ”ushed into coastal estuaries. Releases in the summer of 2016 left the Treasure Coast coated with slimy, smelly algae and killed oyster beds and seagrass in the Caloosahatchee. But its not yet clear how much relief it will provide. Its also not clear when the new reservoir will be complete. La wmakers have required the district and Corps to strike a deal and get a plan before Congress in two years, but extensions are possible. A status report is due in January. In the meantime, the district has come up with another idea to end the releases: pump the lake water 3,000 feet underground into the boulder zone in deep injection wells normally used to store treated wastewater. The plan would likely take two years to “nalize and would be used only to avoid ”ushing the lake into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers, said district lead hydrologist Bob Verrastro. Consider them estuary protection wells,Ž he said. Were trying to minimize the damaging ”ows to the estuaries.Ž Environmentalists oppose the plan, saying injecting the water underground wastes it. Once that water is gone, its gone. And while theres times when there is way too much water in the system, there are times when theres not enough. Its freshwater thats just gone,Ž said Cara Capp, the National Parks Conservation Association Everglades program manager. But Verrastro said that even when all the storage components now included in restoration efforts are built, there will still be times when the system has too much water, like during Hurricane Irma. Thats when the wells would be used. The number of wells has not yet been determined, but the district will likely run models on the effects of about 30 in clusters around canals that discharge into the lake, he said. Water would be pumped into the cavernous boulder zone beneath the aquifer that provides drinking water. It can stay there for hundreds of years before ”owing underground into the deep ocean, he said. In 2015, the South Florida Water Management District and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers killed and burned 50 to 100 acres of cattails in Cochrans Pass on Lake Okeechobees west side as part of a joint effort to manage the invasive plants. There were no burns in 2016. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers removed the wells from their plan this year, saying too many questions remain, prompting the district governing board to come up with its own plan for the injection wells now on the table. Capp also worries that the wells will become a permanent “x, rather than a temporary patch, and pre-empt work that could ultimately be more bene“cial to an ecosystem that most of the time desperately needs more freshwater. Thats particularly true as sea-rise risks worsen saltwater intrusion in South Floridas shallow drinking-water aquifer. What opportunities are we missing when we invest our money in deep injection wells instead of ecosystem restoration?Ž she said. Theres also one more piece of the puzzle that needs to be completed to ease the high water: a 2-mile bridge under construction along the Tamiami Trail. While it is three counties away from the lake, the bridge will unplug a crucial drain in the Everglades system, allowing water from the conservation areas to stream south into the watery marshes in Everglades National Park and out to Florida Bay. What youre seeing in the lake is bad. What youre seeing in the water conservation areas is horrible,Ž Gray said. In the lake we see how its going to transition out, but in the water conservation areas, the inundation is historic.ŽIrma is long gone, but South Floridas watery wilderness is still feeling the painBy JENNY STALETOVICHMIAMI HERALD COOPER CITY „ Mourners “lled a church in Florida on Saturday to honor a U.S. soldier whose combat death in Africa led to a political “ght between President Donald Trump and a Florida congresswoman. The widow of Sgt. La David T. Johnson held the arm of an Army of“cer as she led her family, dressed in white, into the Christ the Rock Community Church in suburban Fort Lauderdale. The family asked that reporters remain outside. Johnson, 25, was one of four U.S. Special Forces troops killed Oct. 4 in an ambush in Niger in an attack by militants linked to the Islamic State group. Four soldiers from Niger also died. Debbie Valin and her teenage daughter, Michelle Shawn, held a U.S. ”ag outside the church in Cooper City more than an hour before the service. We are here for the military. We are grateful for the people who serve,Ž said Valin, whose grandson just completed Marine boot camp. Fred Walker, a Marine veteran, planted small ”ags along the driveway into the church. Its about doing the right thing for the soldiers. They are not acknowledged enough,Ž said Walker, who served from 1983 to 1989 as a tank gunner and substance abuse counselor. The “ght between Trump and Rep. Frederica Wilson has taken the focus off Johnson, whose widow, Myeshia, is due to have a daughter in January. Sgt. Johnson told friends she will be named LaShee. The couple, who were high school sweethearts, already had a 6-year-old daughter, AhLeeysa, and 2-year-old son, La David Jr. An online fundraiser has raised more than $600,000 to pay for the childrens education. The Miami Herald reports that Johnsons mother died when he was 5 and that he was raised by his aunt. His family enrolled him in 5000 Role Models, a project Wilson began in 1993 when she was an educator to mentor African-American males and prepare them for college, vocational school or the military. He worked at Walmart for several years before joining the military in 2014. A year before he enlisted, Johnson was featured in a local television newscast for his ability to do bicycle tricks, earning the nickname Wheelie King.Ž He said he learned his tricks by going slow. Once you feel comfortable, you could just ride all day,Ž he told the interviewer. The “ght between the president and Wilson began Tuesday when the Miami-area Democrat said Trump told Myeshia Johnson in a phone call that her husband knew what he signed up forŽ and didnt appear to know his name, a version later backed up by Johnsons aunt. Wilson was riding with Johnsons family to meet the body and heard the call on speakerphone. She was principal of a school Johnsons father attended. Trump tweeted Wilson fabricatedŽ his statement and the “ght escalated through the week. Trump in other tweets called her wackyŽ and accused her of SECRETLYŽ listening to the phone call. Trumps chief of staff, John Kelly, entered the fray on Thursday. Kelly asserted that the congresswoman had delivered a 2015 speech at an FBI “eld of“ce dedication in which she talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building,Ž rather than keeping the focus on the fallen agents for which it was named. Video of the speech contradicted his recollection. Wilson, who is black, “red back Friday when she told The New York Times The White House itself is full white supremacists.Ž The retorts persisted on Saturday morning, with Trump tweeting: I hope the Fake News Media keeps talking about Wacky Congresswoman Wilson in that she, as a representative, is killing the Democrat Party!ŽFuneral for soldier at center of Trump fightBy TERRY SPENCERASSOCIATED PRESS PEDRO PORTAL/MIAMI HERALD VIA APThe casket of Sgt.

This week, a twicea-decade Communist Party Congress is almost certain to grant him another “ve-year term. Yet beyond the Congress displays of pageantry and protocol, Lis experience is a vivid reminder of the partys propensity for maintaining its grip on power through violence and fear. The Communist Party, under Xi, has introduced new legislation to tighten control over religion, foreign nongovernmental organizations and the internet. Xis anticorruption drive has punishedŽ more than a million of“cials and suppressed competing party factions. He has repeatedly vowed to preside over a national rejuvenationŽ „ one that categorically rejects Western valuesŽ such as democracy, rule of law and freedom of speech. The media have been neutered. Scores of lawyers, activists and journalists have been jailed. After several hundred years, the Western model is showing its age,Ž the state-run New China News Agency said in a commentary Tuesday. Chinas Communist Party leaders have determined that they must not drop their guard on being in control,Ž said Stein Ringen, emeritus professor at the University of Oxford and author of The Perfect Dictatorship: China in the 21st C entury.Ž During the 1980s, when things were relatively open, and people felt like things were moving in a direction of greater openness „ that was because there was disagreement. There were different factions in the party leadership, and a debate about what direction the party would take. Now there is no debate,Ž he said. Its absolutely hierarchical.Ž Li knew the partys wrath long before the 2015 cr ackdown. In 2007, as Beijing prepared to host the Olympics, plainclothes men abducted Li, held him for eight hours, beat him and shocked him with electric batons. They warned him to leave the city and dumped him in the woods. For years, authorities had kept his home under constant surveillance. But the 2015 crackdown was different „ more comprehensive, and more severe. On July 10 that year, police took Li into custody and ransacked his home and of“ce for “les, computers and external hard drives. For the “rst six months, Wang said, they kept him in solitary con“nement. Two guards forced him to stand between them for 15 to 16 hours a day, giving him about eight inches of space. Once you move, they would slap, kick and beat you,Ž Wang said. They would also write down every detail about your movements, such as, You moved your nose, You frowned and so on.Ž People dressed like doctors forced Li to take drugs. He believed they were blood pressure medications, hallucinogens and sedatives. They made him dizzy and fatigued. The damage it has on a persons brain is unthinkable,Ž Wang said. You behave like a psychiatric patient. Your brain starts to lose control of how you behave and what you say. These types of physical torture are less bloody and violent, yet the damage they do to your body is relentless,Ž she said. Most normal people cannot bear it at all.Ž In 2016, authorities transferred Li to an ordinary detention facility in the city of Tianjin, near Beijing, where he lived on a long hall with other prisoners. The torture didnt stop „ authorities shackled his wrists to his ankles for a month. They made him sit on a stool for 16 hours straight. On April 28, 2017, they gave him a rushed, secret trial. According to authorities, he pleaded guilty to attacking China and its government via social media and interviews with the foreign press. A judge convicted him of subversion of state powerŽ and released him on a suspended sentence, meaning that even a minor infraction could send him back to jail. At home, Li looked in a mirror for the “rst time in 22 months. The gaunt, gray-haired skeleton staring back shocked him. He can no longer work as a normal person,Ž Wang said. His lawyers license has been (invalidated), and he lost his physical freedom to go outside Beijing.Ž Other victims of the 709 crackdown have made what appears to be forced pretrial confessions on state television. Virtually all of them cast their legal work as criminal, anti-China and supported by hostile foreign forces.Ž Under Xi, these confessions „ a relic of Cultural Revolution-era public humiliations „ have increased. At least 40 were broadcast between 2013 and 2016. Only one lawyer, Wang Quanzhang „ an advocate for marginalized groups „ still awaits trial. Authorities have not explained the delay. His wife, Li Wenzu, who has not seen him since his detention, believes he may simply be unwilling to bend. The government is aiming to punish current arrested activists, and also to frighten the potential activists of the future,Ž said Li, 32. Since the (709) cases are fundamentally made up by the government, its also dif“cult for the government to “nd any evidence that proves them guilty.Ž In March, Li and her 4-year-old son, Wang Guangwei, moved in with Wang (and her 6-yearold daughter, Li Jiamei) at her three-bedroom apartment in southern Beijing. They still visit the police, judicial of“ces and foreign embassies to advocate for Wangs release. The human rights lawyers circle is very small, but we all help each other and cooperate each other and support each other,Ž she said.COSTFROM PAGE 1 government under Article 155 of the constitution.

Oswalds stated reason for going was to get visas that would allow him to enter Cuba and the Soviet Union, according to the Warren Commission, the investigative body established by President Lyndon B. Johnson, but much about the trip remains unknown. Longtime Trump friend Roger Stone, who wrote a book alleging that Johnson was the driving force behind Kennedys assassination, had personally urged the president to make the “les public, he told far-right conspiracy theorist and radio show host Alex Jones this past week. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to make the case directly to the president of the United States by phone as to why I believe it is essential that he release the balance of the currently redacted and classi“ed JFK assassination documents,Ž Stone said, adding that a very good White House source,Ž but not the president, had told him the Central Intelligence Agency, speci“cally CIA director Mike Pompeo, has been lobbying the president furiously not to release these documents.Ž Why? Because I believe they show that Oswald was trained, nurtured and put in place by the Central Intelligence Agency. It sheds very bad light on the deep state,Ž he said.

The National Archives in July published online more than 440 never-before-seen assassination documents and thousands of others that had been released previously with redactions.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 Page 5 TECHNOLOGY TODAY Delray Beach resident Falon Velez would like to see more little girls dreaming of designing cars instead of playing dress-up with Barbies. The 34-year-old computer whiz is the creator of TeachGeek, a tech support and teaching company that sets everything up from Alexa systems in homes to offering 3-D printing tech classes at schools throughout South Florida, including Grandview Preparatory School and St. Paul Lutheran School in Boca Raton. I launched a camp program this summer as well as an afterschool program,Ž Velez said. Students learn (computer-aided design) programs and 3-D printing and make some amazing designs. We want to educate people ages 7 to 90 to learn technology.Ž Velez said she was dazzled by a unique plant pot design one of her youngest students came up wi th. One of my students designed a pot on SketchUp (design software) to bring to her friend in Norway,Ž Velez said. Then she printed it out on a 3-D printer, and it was really incredible to watch her take the design from her mind to reality.

Home and corporate Wi-Fi networks „ and all the data, photos and messages transmitted across them „ could be vulnerable to hackers, according to a computer security researcher in Belgium. The vulnerability is in WPA2, the main protocol that protects Wi-Fi networks. Hackers can use a technique known as key reinstallation attacks, or Krack for short, to intercept information sent over networks that users thought were encrypted, the researcher says. Nobody has ever found this vulnerability,Ž said Matthew Green, assistant professor of computer science at Johns Hopkins University. Its pretty serious.ŽWho does this affect?WPA2 is the industry standardŽ and has been heavily relied upon as the best level of protection for your information,Ž said Emma GarrisonAlexander, vice dean for cybersecurity and information assurance in the graduate school at the University of Maryland University College. Its really the fundamental way our wireless communication is protected today,Ž she said. Mathy Vanhoef, the researcher who discovered the protocol vulnerability, said on his website that any device that uses Wi-Fi is probably vulnerable. That means a router, a phone, a laptop, a smart TV or even a Wi-Fi enabled refrigerator that uses WPA2 protocol could be susceptible. Vanhoef said the attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks, and that his team found during its research that systems powered by Android, Apple, Windows, Linux and others were all affected by some variantŽ of the attacks.Are some operating systems more susceptible than others?Vanhoef said on his site that the key reinstallation attack was exceptionally devastatingŽ against Linux and Android 6.0 or higher.Whats the worstcase scenario?A hacker could exploit this vulnerability in a Wi-Fi network and use it to capture the content of victims emails, browsing data to see what websites they visit, credit card information from online purchases, or photos and videos sent to friends. Any data information sharing thats depending on that protocol for securityŽ could be exposed, Garrison-Alexander said.Should I be freaking out?Yes and no. While the security implications are grave, researchers believe attackers must be physically proximate to their victims, and extremely skilled in hacking. That makes attacks against individuals less likely, at least for now, than attacks against corporate targets, which transmit large amounts of payment information, experts said.What should users do to protect themselves?Cybersecurity researchers advise that users download a patch, or “x, from their device and router manufacturers as soon as they are available. Microsoft Corp. said in a statement that the company released security updates last week and that users who have Windows Updates enabled and applied the security updates are automatically protected. An Apple spokesman con“rmed that the “x for the vulnerability is already patched into some devices that run beta versions of all of the companys operating systems, including Mac OS, iOS, Watch and TV. A software update will be coming in a few weeks to patch the rest. Google said in a statement that it is aware of the issue and will be patching any affected devices in the coming weeks. The company said Android partners have also been noti“ed and will be issuing patches as quickly as possible.Ž Websites protected by HTTPS and encrypted email features could offer users an additional layer of protection, said Avi Rubin, professor of computer science at Johns Hopkins University and technical director of the universitys information security institute. Concerned users could also avoid password-less “le-sharing and avoid performing sensitive transactions on devices that connect to many WiFi networks or have many unencrypted apps.Researcher: All data on Wi-Fi networks could be susceptible to hackingBy SAMANTHA MASUNAGAORLANDO SENTINEL DREAMSTIME/TNSHackers can use a technique known as key reinstallation attacks, or Krack for short, to intercept information sent over networks that users thought were encrypted, a researcher says. Ive had the iPhone 8 Plus for about a month now, and while on launch day I thought Id be most excited about wireless charging, Ive found Ive abandoned my wireless charger in favor of fast charging. Ive come to like wireless charging when Ive used Samsungs phones, as its quite speedy, but Apple has limited its Qi wireless charging to only accept the charge at a very pokey 5 watts. Contrast that with the Qi fast-charging standard that can provide up to 15 watts of charging power. Apple has announced plans to upgrade the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and the iPhone X to accept 7.5 watts of power in a future software update, but thats still half the speed of some Android phones that can take advantage of all 15 watts. For example, 5 watts will charge a phone from zero to 20 percent in 30 minutes. A wireless charger that can provide 15 watts can charge a compatible phone from zero to 40 percent in 30 minutes. So, Ive decided to concentrate on fast charging using a Lightning cable, but the charger and cable that come with the iPhones is not capable of fast charging. To charge at warp speeds, youll need to buy Apples USB-C to Lightning cable ($25) and a USB-C charger thats capable of providing a feature called Power Delivery (USB-PD). The power adapters that ship with Apples newest MacBook Pros will provide enough power to fast charge the iPhone 8 models and iPhone X. The cheapest MacBook Pro charger is the 29-watt version that costs $49. So, youre talking $74 for the cable and charger from Apple to fast charge the iPhones. We can do a bit better. Apple says youll need to use its $25 USB-C to Lightning cable, which has been verified by every test Ive found online. The good news is there are cheaper USB-PD chargers available. I chose the Aukey Amp Duo 29W USB-C PD charger that costs $17.99 from Amazon. The Amp PD Duo with the Apple cable can charge my iPhone 8 Plus from zero to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. In my searching I also found a USB-PD charger for my car, the AUKEY CC-Y7 Car Charger, which has USBPD through a USB-C port plus a traditional USB type A port. It costs just $13 from Amazon. The Amp PD Duo and the CC-Y7 charge at the same rate, so plugging in my iPhone for even a short drive around town can provide a nice bump to the battery charge. So until Apple gets its act together with faster wireless charging, Im going to stick with wired fast charging. If youd like to read a comprehensive review of USBPD chargers, I think iMore. com did a great job here. Jim Rossman writes for The Dallas Morning News.

Page 6 The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 BUSINESS/FINANCIAL Dear Mr. Berko: In January 2015, I bought 300 shares of Amazon at $342 a share, and it just kept going up and up. I never thought Amazon could rise so much that quickly. This year, my shares increased by more than 300 points, and Im very nervous because I have such a large pro“t and could lose it all if the companys earnings were to fall or if the stock market were to crash as lots of people are predicting. Is the Whole Foods purchase good or bad for Amazon? Im told its not a good deal. Please tell me whether I should continue holding or I should sell Amazon. „ PS, Rochester, Minn. Dear PS: Amazons $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods Market „ with its 450 upperincome prime store locations „ was its largest acquisition ever. It either was a brilliant move or may be known as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Waterloo. Those who doubt Amazons (AMZN$1,001) strategy note that groceries are a dreadful, low-margin business. But this acquisition is not about food, per se; rather, its about food as a delivery service,Ž in The Atlantics words. And Jeff is banking on a concept called consumer convenience,Ž which many retailers, especially big-box stores and semi-big-box stores, cant grasp. Jeff recognizes that American consumers are slothful and enjoy couch potato-hood. Americans dont want to “ght annoying traf“c jams and then squeeze their new cars into increasingly smaller parking spaces. Americans dont want to spend 17 minutes wandering Bed Bath & Beyonds aisles searching for a pillow and then stand in line for seven minutes to complete the purchase „ or 11 minutes because the credit card belonging to the idiot in line ahead of them is out of juice. Then OMG, they have to battle the traf“c returning home. Though Jeff sells convenience, many believe that his WFM acquisition will fail because of terribly low margins and highly perishable products. They “gure that if Jeff reduces prices and then adds a delivery fee, this venture is certain to lose money. And he may also lose revenues because impulse purchases account for an estimated 22 percent (this estimate may be considered low) of grocery purchases. However, along with the purchase of WFM, Jeff also acquired 450 distribution centers for everything AMZN sells. Some believe that WFMs urban and suburban locations are uncommonly useful for AMZNs national delivery service. Their reasoning suggests „ even if WFM stopped selling groceries „ that the merger price was cheap. AMZN merchandises convenience to indolent Americans. Even driving to a movie and parking is inconvenient for many Americans, which is why Net”ix has become so popular, with 104 million streaming members in the U.S. AMZN, with an expected $160 billion in 2017 revenues, should earn $5.80 a share this year. And next year, on anticipated revenues of $191 billion, AMZN could earn $11.80. This huge leap in earnings would be made possible by an anticipated 70 percent increase in net pro“t margins, from 1.7 percent this year to 2.9 percent in 2018. AMZN-watchers believe that Jeff could grow revenues to $320 billion in the next four years, with anticipated net pro“t margins of 4.1 percent, and produce earnings of $27.60 a share. Incredible! AMZN doesnt pay a dividend, and I doubt it will, though some believe that the board will declare its “rst dividend just before Thanksgiving in 2023. Since you bought AMZN at $342, those shares have nearly tripled. AMZN traded as high as $1,080 this year. But though Im con“dent that revenues and earnings will continue to zoom, some watchers, such as Morningstar, reason that AMZNs share price wont rise much over $1,200. And analysts at Market Edge, Raymond James, Paci“c Crest Securities and Wolfe Research have downgraded the shares. Highly respected and frequently followed Zacks Investment Research has an outright strong sellŽ recommendation. In a well-written seven-page research report, Zacks lists and clearly discusses seven reasons it issued that recommendation. You have a ginormous pro“t of some $180,000, and your taxes on the sale could be ginormous, too. Consider selling 150 shares at the market. Keep the remaining 150 shares, but put an open stop-loss order at $895. Email Malcolm Berko at Amazon keep going up? Malcolm Berko HONG KONG „ Hong Kongs last remaining stock market ”oor traders are taking their “nal orders as the exchange prepares to shut its trading hall. The bourses operator, Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing, says it will close the trading hall by the end of the month and turn the space into a showcase for the citys “nancial markets. Yip Wing-keung, a trading manager at brokerage Christfund Securities, donned his red trading jacket for the last time Friday, his “nal day on the ”oor. He and the other few ”oor traders left have been moving out ahead of the closure. The shutdown marks the end of an era for the stock market, which symbolized the citys ascent as an Asian “nance hub. Activity on the ”oor, one of a few such venues left worldwide, dwinded as stock dealing became fully computerized. I feel sadness and regret,Ž said Yip, who has been a ”oor trader since the hall was opened in 1986 after four previous exchanges were merged. Hong Kong is one of the worlds “nancial centers, but if we dont have the stock market trading hall, it will be a l ittle sorrowful. This is my own individual re”ection.Ž Yip said the ”oor traders resisted the closure. They sent a protest letter to the government but it was in vain. We wrote it but were overruled,Ž he said. We cant stop the times from changing.Ž Hong Kongs stock exchange, Asias third biggest by volume, follows other global peers like Tokyo, Singapore and London that have eliminated their trading ”oors In the U.S., ”oor traders at the New York Stock Exchange still provide the backdrop for “nancial TV news reports and bell-ringing ceremonies. But Chicago and New York commodity futures trading pits, where traders used old-fashioned open outcryŽ techniques, have shut in recent years as volume fell to 1 percent of the total. Hong Kong Exchanges stopped updating stats for ”oor trading in 2014, when it accounted for less than 1 percent of monthly turnover. In the 1980s and 1990s the hall housed more than 900 trading desks. The exchanges most recent count showed only 62 dealing desks were leased, with about 30 traders showing up on an average day. On a visit to the hall this week, only about seven traders could be seen. Back in its heyday, ”oor trading was computerassisted but dealers still needed to talk to each other to complete transactions, either by phone or in person, depending on how far away they sat from each other, Yip said. If they were too far you had to use the internal phone line, but If you couldnt get through, you had to run over to them,Ž he said. So you saw lots of people running back and forth.Ž These days, Yip just punches orders into his computer. Now its more comfortableŽ but relationships with other traders are not as good as they used to be, said Yip. He doesnt look forward to returning to his head of“ce. It wont be so free,Ž he said.End of an era as Hong Kong stock trading floor set to closeBy KELVIN CHANAP BUSINESS WRITER WASHINGTON „ First the U.S. government temporarily banned laptops in the cabins of some airplanes. Now it is looking to ban them from checked luggage on international ”ights, citing the risk of potentially catastrophic “res. The Federal Aviation Administration recently recommended that the U.N. agency that sets global aviation standards prohibit passengers from putting laptops and other large personal electronic devices in their checked bags. The FAA says in a “ling with the International Civil Aviation Organization that the lithium-ion batteries in laptops can overheat and create “res. Some questions and answers about the shifting U.S. policy. „„„WHY IS THE FAA WORRIED ABOUT THIS DANGER NOW?The FAA has long been concerned about the potential hazardous of lithium batteries. The agencys tests of the risks of shipping large quantities of batteries as cargo on airliners showed that when a single battery overheats, it can cause other nearby batteries to overheat as well. That can result in intense “res and the release of explosive gases. Based on those test results, the FAA was able to convince ICAO two years ago to ban cargo shipments of lithium batteries on passenger planes and to require that batteries shipped on cargo planes be charged no more than 30 percent. The risk of overheating is lower if the battery isnt fully charged. More recently, the FAA conducted 10 tests of fully charged laptops packed in suitcases. In one test, an 8-ounce aerosol can of dry shampoo „which is permitted in checked baggage „ was strapped to the laptop. A heater was placed against the laptops battery to force it into thermal runaway,Ž a condition in which the batterys temperature continually rises. There was a “re almost immediately and an explosion within 40 seconds with enough force to potentially disable the “re suppression system. Other tests of laptop batteries packed in suitcases with goods like nail polish remover, hand sanitizer and rubbing alcohol also resulted in large “res, although no explosions. „„„ISNT THE GOVERNMENT CONTRADICTING ITSELF?The different messages are the result of two agencies with different missions: security versus safety. Last March, the Department of Homeland Security imposed a ban on laptops in the cabins of planes coming into the U.S. from 10 Middle Eastern airports to prevent them from being used as a tool in an attack. Many passengers put their laptops in their checked bags instead. The ban was fully lifted in July after airports in the region took steps to improve security. This ban is being sought by the FAA, which is focused on the risk of an accidental explosion more than the prospect of a terrorist attack. „„„WHEN WILL THIS GO INTO EFFECT?There are no guarantees that there will be ban on packing laptops in checked bags. The FAA is presenting its case at a meeting this week and next of ICAOs dangerous goods panel. European aviation safety regulators, aircraft manufacturers and pilots unions have endorsed the proposal. Even if the panel were to agree with the proposal, it would still need to be adopted at higher levels of ICAO. And it would only apply to international ”ights. „„„WILL THE U.S. IMPOSE A BAN ON CHECKING LAPTOPS ON DOMESTIC FLIGHTS?This is unclear. Individual countries can decide whether to implement domestic bans. The United States has not indicated if it will do so. The effect of such a ban may not be great, since many passengers dont check bags to avoid surcharges, and those that do often prefer to carry on electronics. „„„WILL THE U.S. CONTINUE TO PUSH FOR THE INTERNATIONAL BAN?This is also unclear. The FAA, which favors the ban, is handling negotiations for the U.S. at the ICAO meeting. But, for future meetings, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is having another agency, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, take the lead. Its not clear if that agency, known as PHMSA, will share the FAAs position. PHMSA previously led dangerous goods negotiations, but the Obama administration put the FAA in charge after congressional Democrats complained that PHMSA of“cials were too cozy with the industries they regulated. The Transportation Department said in a statement that PHMSA has a unique and highly effectiveŽ approach to regulating the transportation of hazardous materials, and that it will consider what impact any change in aviation rules might have on transportation. The statement also said PHMSA will collaborate with the FAA.Questions and answers on proposed ban on laptops in luggageBy JOAN LOWYASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this April 2014 le image frame grab from video, provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), is a test at the FAAs technical center in Atlantic City, N.J.

The value he has created for Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRKA) (NYSE: BRK-B) shareholders has become apparent over the past decades, as Berkshires collection of wholly owned subsidiaries has expanded, increasing the companys cash-generating capabilities. Berkshires market value was recently $450 billion, while the value of its stock portfolio was $148 billion at the start of the year. In other words, Berkshires nonstock holdings are worth close to $300 billion. The cash flow thrown off by these diverse businesses gives Buffett the ammo for his elephant gun, and its the quality of the businesses that has them generating so much consistent profit. Todays Berkshire is an amazingly diverse company. Its subsidiaries range across multiple industries, including railways, regulated utilities, insurance, consumer goods and industrial manufacturing. Some of its subsidiaries are GEICO, Benjamin Moore, Brooks, Duracell, Justin Brands, Sees Candies, International Dairy Queen, Fruit of the Loom and the massive BNSF railroad. This combination limits Berkshires exposure to any single industry and tempers the effect of weak consumer spending in a recession. Buffett has built an incredible business. The most amazing thing about it may not be what it has become under his leadership, but how strong it is set to remain after hes gone.

They almost never lost a customer over price. That should have been a heads-up to me. I used to laugh with some other energy managers, wondering how they could make any money. I got the answer a couple of years later, when it turned out that the company wasnt making as much money as it said it was, and instead was cooking its books. Unfortunately, scratching my head about how it made money did not stop me from buying Enron stock a couple of times. I leave the remains of the investment on my statement, so I am constantly reminded about it. I hope to never ride a stock to zero again. „ S.W., online The Fool Responds: You were far from the only person who fell victim to Enrons accounting fraud „ which was one of the largest in history „ and many who lost a lot were not small investors, but Wall Street professionals. A key lesson from this story is to avoid investments that you dont understand. If you dont have a good handle on exactly how a company makes its money, steer clear. Enrons financial statements were known to be very confusing, yet Wall Streeters bought and recommended the shares. The Securities and Exchange Commission and credit rating agencies also took heat for insufficient oversight and due diligence. Cash for Crash?QIm considering selling my stocks and keeping the cash in case the market crashes so I can grab some bargains. Is that a good idea? „ S.W., Jeannette, PennsylvaniaAIf you sell your stocks and the market does crash, you will have acted brilliantly. But what if the market keeps rising for a good while longer? Youll miss out on a lot of gains. No one knows what the market will do in the short term. In the long run, it tends to go up.That said, keep any money youll need within the next five (or even 10) years out of stocks, since a crash can happen at any time. But otherwise, its often best to remain fully or mostly fully invested, and to try to add to your holdings when it sinks. If youre not comfortable in stocks, though, sell some or all of them.***QIm intrigued by certain industries. How can I learn enough about them so I can invest in them? „ J.O., DallasAIndustries vary in their complexities, so some will be easier to understand (retailing, travel, consumer products) than others (biotechnology, financial services). Youll learn the most by reading broadly. Read many annual reports of companies in the industry, including the comprehensive 10-K reports that detail each companys successes, challenges and plans. Dont worry if you dont immediately understand it all „ many concepts will sink in over time.

Here are key attributes to look for: profit margins. Revenue and earnings increasing steadily is a sign of good management. Compare gross, operating and net profit margins with those of competitors to see whos kept the most from each dollar of sales. Look for upward trends, too. Favor companies selling things people really need or want. People wont easily give up their prescription drugs or electricity, for example. Companies such as Netflix and Apple offer items consumers crave. Also appealing are items that people buy repeatedly, such as gas, shampoo, sandwiches, socks and books, instead of items bought only sporadically, such as cars, ovens and pianos. and well-respected brands can permit a company to charge higher prices and more easily introduce new prod 2017 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Democrats Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and Republicans George H.W. and George W. Bush are putting aside politics in contrast with President Donald Trump, who has vowed to help Texas and Florida for as long as it takes but has criticized Puerto Rican leaders while suggesting aid there wont be unlimited. Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, which made landfall after Harvey and Irma had battered other areas. Having so much expresidential power in one place is unusual. George H.W. Bush spokeswoman Jim McGrath said all “ve of Saturday nights attendees havent been together since the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas in 2013, when Obama was still in of“ce. He didnt answer a question about whether Trump was formally invited. The concert features the country music band Alabama, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Soul ManŽ Sam Moore, gospel legend Yolanda Adams and Texas musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen. Its happening at Texas A&M Universitys Reed Arena in College Station, home to the presidential library of the elder Bush. At 93, he has a form of Parkinsons disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility, though he participated in the coin ”ip at Februarys Super Bowl in his hometown of Houston. George W. Bush was Texas governor before leaving for the White House and now lives in Dallas. There is precedent for former presidents joining forces for post-disaster fundraising. George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton raised money together after the 2004 South Asia tsunami and Hurricane Katrina the next year. Clinton and George W. Bush combined to seek donations after Haitis 2011 earthquake. Its certainly a triple, if not a home run, every time,Ž said Brandon Rottinghaus, a political science professor at the University of Houston. Presidents have the most powerful and proli“c fundraising base of any politician in the world. When they send out a call for help, especially on something thats not political, they can rake in big money.Ž Amid criticism that his administration was initially slow to aid storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, Trump accused island leaders of poor leadership,Ž and later tweeted that, Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanesŽ while saying that Federal Emergency Management Agency, “rstresponders and military personnel wouldnt be able to stay there forever. But Rottinghaus said those attending Saturdays concert were always going to be viewed more favorably since polling consistently shows that any ex-president is seen as less polarizing than the current president.Ž They cant get away from the politics of the moment,Ž he said of current White House occupants. Ex-presidents are able to step back and be seen as the nations grandfather.Ž Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas Gulf Coast as a Category 4 hurricane on Aug. 25, eventually unleashing historic ”ooding in Houston and killing more than 80 people. Shortly thereafter, all “ve ex-presidents appeared in a commercial for a fundraising effort known as One America Appeal.Ž In it, George W. Bush says, People are hurting down here.Ž His father, George H.W. Bush, then replies, We love you, Texas.Ž A website accepting donations,, was created with 100 percent of proceeds pledged to hurricane relief. Hurricane Irma subsequently hit Florida and Hurricane Maria battered Puerto Rico, while both affected the U.S. Virgin Islands. Organizers expanded the fundraising campaign to help those storm victims, too.Five living ex-presidents attend Texas hurricane relief concertBy WILL WEISSERTASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 7, 2009 le photo, Then-President George W.

By MARK DIDTLERAssociated PressTAMPA „ Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov extended their season-opening points streaks to nine games and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the two-time Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins 7-1 on Saturday night. Stamkos had a goal and three assists, and Kucherov had two goals and an assist. They are the first teammates to start the season with nine-game streaks since St. Louis Pavol Demitra and Doug Weight in 2001-02.By DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressKANSAS CITY, Kan. „ Martin Truex Jr. already looks like the coolest cat at the club, with his shades and scruff and disarming smile, yet he has even more reason to be relaxed and confident at Kansas Speedway this weekend. Start with the fact that hes already clinched a spot in the next round of NASCARs playoffs with his win at Charlotte. Brad Keselowski is also assured of advancing through the round of 12 after Sundays race, but former champs such as Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch are on the bubble. Then consider the fact that Truex always runs well at intermediate tracks, finishing in the top 10 in his last five starts with a trio of victories. Hes especially good at Kansas, where he routinely runs up front and exorcised some bad luck with a victory in May. Finally, theres the fact that Truex was fast the moment he unloaded Friday, winning the pole and earning not only a prime pit stall for Sunday but also the first pick next week at Martinsville. That all led to this admission from Johnson, who is chasing his record-setting eighth Cup title: The 78 has sort of controlled the year. Were all jealous of the situation theyre in.Ž Its not as if Truex and his Furniture Row Racing team have lucked into this situation. The only NASCAR team headquartered west of the Mississippi River went through years of fits and starts, with team owner Barney Visser often pouring gobs of his own money into the project. And things didnt look as if they were getting much better when Truex came aboard for the 2014 season. He managed five top-10 finishes, led a single lap all year and finished 24th in the standings.By JOHN WAWROWAssociated PressORCHARD PARK, N.Y. „ LeSean McCoy cant recall ever taking this long to find the end zone. It didnt happen during his previous eight NFL seasons. And not in college at Pittsburgh, where he scored 36 times in 25 games. Never. Even Little League,Ž the Bills running back said as Buffalo (3-2) comes out of its bye week to host Tampa Bay (2-3) today. Its time to get rolling,Ž McCoy said. I look forward to this week, having a big game. Its about time, you know.Ž The Bills top offensive threat has been held off the score sheet through five games „ McCoys longest drought to start a season. And his drought is actually six games long, dating to last season, to match the worst stretch of his career set in 2014, McCoys final season with the Eagles. Just as worrisome are his rushing numbers. Though he has 189 yards receiving on a teamleading 27 catches, McCoys combined for just 169 yards rushing in his past four games after gaining 110 in a seasonopening 21-12 win over the New York Jets. This is not what the 29-year-old expected out of himself last summer when dismissing questions whether he was slowing down with age.

SEE BUCS, 3AUTO RACING: NASCARTruex con“ dent as NASCARs dominant driver hits Kansas SEE NASCAR, 3 From AP ReportsEighth-ranked Miami and No. 20 UCF extended their respective winning streaks Saturday, edging solid conference opponents, while the losing at Florida State is taking a toll. Miami (6-0, 4-0) continued its longest run of wins in 15 years by pulling away from Syracuse 27-19 in an Atlantic Coast Conference game in Miami Gardens. Travis Homers 33-yard touchdown run with 2:48 left was the latest entry in the Hurricanes growing list of fourth-quarter magic moments this season after last-second wins against Florida State and Georgia Tech the past two weeks. The Golden Knights proved worthy of their ranking by winning 31-21 at Navy in the American Athletic Conference for their first 6-0 start in school history. Adrian Killins ran for 122 yards and two touchdowns, and McKenzie Milton passed for 233 yards for UCF. Meanwhile in Tallahassee, a 31-28 ACC loss to Louisville, has emotions boiling over for the Seminoles. Coach Jimbo Fisher got into a verbal altercation with a fan as he was left the field after Blanton Creques 34-yard field goal with five seconds left that made FSU 2-4 and losers of its first three homes games since 1974. Fisher was angry after a fan kept yelling that the program needs to hire new coaches. Fisher yelled into the stands that the fan should deliver the message to him personally. Theres no reason to be nasty. But at the same time defending players and people youre with, Im in charge of them,Ž Fisher said. I love them like a father. When they say something to your family, you take up for them.Ž In other games involving the states FBS teams, Florida Atlantic blitzed North Texas 69-31 in a Conference USA game, while No. 16 South Florida sought its nation-leading 12th straight win in a AAC night at Tulane.STATE ROUNDUPMiami, UCF roll onMORE INSIDEMiami, Florida State and Central Florida game stories on Pages 3-4.AP PHOTOMiami wide receiver Jeff Thomas (4) celebrates after scoring a touchdown during the second half Saturday in Miami Gardens.

Andrei Vasilevskiy, coming off a 43-save blanking of Columbus on Thursday night, lost his bid for second straight shutout bid on Jake Guentzels goal with 1:42 to play. Vasilevskiy finished with 28 saves. Yanni Gourde, Brayden Point Anton Stralman and Mikhail Sergachev also scored to help the Lightning improve to 7-1-1. Penguins star Sidney Crosby received both minor and misconduct penalties during the opening 1:36 of the game. Backup goalie Antti Niemi, 0-3 in three starts, stopped 25 shots. Pittsburgh is 5-2 over its last seven games, with both losses against Tampa Bay. With Crosby off for cross-checking, Kucherov scored at 1:36 of the first. Kucherov got his 10th goal in Tampa Bays three-goal second. After leaving the penalty box following Kucherovs first goal, Crosby was given a 10-minute misconduct after arguing with referee Garrett Rank. Stamkos made it 2-0 with a man-advantage goal with 5:44 left in the first. It was his 113th power-play goal, which broke a tie with Vincent Lecavalier (112) for most in Tampa Bay history. After Vasilevskiy had a stellar save on Carl Hagelin, Tampa Bay took a 3-0 lead on Gourdes backhand with two-tenths of second remaining in the first. Niemi made an in-close save on Gourde during a short-handed 2-on-none 5 in minutes into the game.

Orlando led 36-18 after the first, hitting 14 of 24 from the field. The Magic, which made 14 of 35 3-pointers, took its biggest lead, 106-69, midway through the fourth quarter when both teams cleared their benches.

South Florida (7-0, 4-0) also scored at least 30 points in a game for a modern-era record 24th straight time, but needed to hold on after Tulane nearly clawed back from a 27-point hole. Jonathan Banks passed for two touchdowns for Tulane, and Dontrell Hilliards tackle-slipping, 16-yard touchdown run made it a one-possession game with 2:45 left. But the Green Wave (3-4, 1-2) failed to recover an onside kick and could not stop Darius Tices run on third down, allowing the Bulls to run out the clock. USF had never before opened a season with seven straight victories.NO. 2 PENN STATE 42, NO. 19 MICHIGAN 13: In State College, Pa., Saquon Barkley and Trace McSorley each scored three touchdowns to help the Nittany Lions (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) emphatically avenge their last regularseason loss. Barkley set the tone the “ rst time he touched the ball, taking a direct snap on the second play of the game and racing 69 yards for a touchdown on his way to 161 yards from scrimmage. McSorley and Barkley combined for the knock-out blow, a 42-yard TD pass with Barkley easily burning linebacker Mike McCray and then making a juggling catch to increase make the score 35-13 early in the fourth quarter. Penn State has not lost a regular-season game since getting trounced 49-10 by Michigan (5-2, 2-2) last season. NO. 13 NOTRE DAME 49, NO. 11 USC 14: In South Bend, Ind., Brandon Wimbush passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more, Josh Adams added three touchdown runs and the Irish took advantage of three turnovers to blitz the Trojans. Notre Dame (6-1) converted all three USC turnovers into touchdowns for its “ rst victory against USC (6-2) when the Trojans were ranked since a 38-10 victory in 1995. The turnovers came on a fumble and interception by Sam Darnold and a dropped punt by Jack Jones. Adams had an 84-yard touchdown run and “ nished with 191 yards on 19 carries. Wimbush ran for 106 yards on 14 carries as the Irish amassed 377 yards on the ground. Darnold completed 20 of 29 passes, but could not overcome the turnovers or USC being held to 76 yards rushing, including minus-4 in the “ rst half. He threw two touchdown passes. NO. 4 TCU 43, KANSAS 0: In Fort Worth, Texas, Kenny Hill matched his career high with “ ve touchdown passes and the Horned Frogs defense dominated the overmatched the Jayhawks (1-6, 0-4), who had 21 yards total offense while tying an 81-year-old NCAA record with their 44th straight loss in a true road game. The Horned Frogs (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) imp roved to 19-0 at home as a top 10 team under coach Gary Patterson. The Jayhawks have lost 47 straight away from home overall since a 34-7 win at UTEP on Sept. 12, 2009.

Jarrett Stidham completed 19 of 28 passes for 218 yards and rushed for a touchdown for Auburn. Arkansas freshman Cole Kelley, making his second straight start in place of the injured Austin Allen, “ nished 14-of-25 passing for 138 yards. NO. 24 LSU 40, MISSISSIPPI 24: In Oxford, Miss. „ Derrius Guice ran for a season-high 276 yards and a touchdown to lead the Tigers. LSU (6-2, 3-1 SEC) has won three straight after two losses. Danny Etling threw for 200 yards and two touchdowns and coach Ed Orgeron won in his return as a head coach to Oxford, where he was head coach in 2005-07. The 5-foot-11, 218-pound Guice ran for 126 yards in the “ rst half, which was already good enough for his season high. It was the biggest reason the Tigers had a 13-6 at the break and the junior was far from “ nished. Ole Miss (3-4, 1-3) entered with the SECs most proli“ c passing offense, but struggled the entire night. Quarterback Shea Patterson „ who entered leading the league with 2,143 yards passing „ completed just 10 of 23 passes for 116 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions. FLORIDA ATLANTIC 69, NO.

In the second he made a jump cut to change direction just behind the line of scrimmage and sprinted through the gap for a 22-yarder, his 14th touchdown of the season, a school record. The Owls amassed 447 yards rushing. Azee AlShaair was credited with 14 tackles. Jason Driskel completed 24 of 35 passes with a pair of touchdowns.

By KRISTIE RIEKENAssociated PressHOUS TON „ Charlie Morton and Lance McCullers combined on a three-hitter, Jose Altuve and Evan Gattis homered and the Houston Astros reached the World Series, blanking the New York Yankees 4-0 Saturday night in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series. Just four years removed from their third straight 100-loss season in 2013, the Astros shut down the Yankees for two straight games after dropping three in a row in the Bronx. Next up for the Astros: Game 1 of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. Houston aces Dallas Keuchel and ALCS MVP Justin Verlander will have plenty of rest, too, before the matchup begins at Dodger Stadium. Houston has never won even a single World Series game. The only previous time the Astros made it this far, they were a National League team when they were swept by the Chicago White Sox in 2005. Now, manager A.J. Hinchs club has a chance to win that elusive first title, while trying to boost a region still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. Houston improved to 6-0 at Minute Maid Park in these playoffs and became the fifth team in major league history to win a seven-game postseason series by winning all four of its home games. Morton bounced back from a loss in Game 3 to allow two hits over five scoreless innings. Starterturned-postseason reliever McCullers limited the Yankees to just one hit while fanning six over the next four. Combined, they throttled the Yankees one last time in Houston. Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and their New York teammates totaled just three runs in the four road games. CC Sabathia entered the game 10-0 with a 1.69 ERA in 13 starts this season after a Yankees loss. But he struggled with command and was gone with one out in the fourth inning.


By JOE REEDYAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE „ Blanton Creques first game-winning field goal at any level of football came at the opportune time for Louisville. The sophomores 34-yard field goal with five seconds remaining lifted the Cardinals to an emotional 31-28 win over Florida State on Saturday. The Cardinals (5-3, 2-3 ACC) took over on their own 24 with 2:05 remaining after Henry Famurewa recovered a James Blackman fumble. They then drove 59 yards in eight plays before Creques kick. Thats the first time Ive ever had a kick to win or tie a game (late). I just tried to treat it like any other kick,Ž Creque said. We needed that win bad. Its been a rough week.Ž Not only is it Louisvilles first win at Doak Campbell Stadium since 1952, snapping a ninegame losing streak here, but it caps an emotional week for the schools athletic program after the firings of athletic director Tom Jurich and basketball coach Rick Pitino. The win is also a lift for a Cardinals squad that had lost two straight, including a 45-42 loss to Boston College last Saturday. This was very huge. We needed this to boost our momentum,Ž said quarterback Lamar Jackson, who had 334 yards of total offense and accounted for two touchdowns. Florida State trailed 28-14 going into the fourth quarter before rallying on a pair of Nyqwan Murray touchdowns. The junior recovered a Patrick fumble in the end zone to bring the Seminoles within a TD and then tied it when he hauled in a 20-yard pass from Blackman with 8:58 remaining. It was not enough though as the Seminoles nightmare season continues. After being ranked third in the AP Preseason Poll, FSU (2-4, 2-3) has dropped its first three home games for the first time since 1974 and is off to its worst start since Bobby Bowdens final season in 2009. Even more important is that the Seminoles are in danger of missing a bowl game for the first time since 1982. It was a hurt locker room because they knew they were that close, but you play a guy like Louisville, Bobby (Petrino) and La mar and those guys when you got them down you cant let them up,Ž coach Jimbo Fisher said. Jackson passed for a season-low 156 yards „ he was 13 of 21 with a touchdown „ but the Cardinals were very effective on the ground with 293 yards and averaging 6.7 yards per carry. Jackson led the way with 178 yards on 23 carries with a TD while Reggie Bonnafon (16 carries, 74 yards) and Dae Williams also ran for scores. I feel good. I feel the same. I feel young. I feel about 25,Ž said McCoy, who led the NFL in yards rushing at that exact age in 2013. In his defense, the Bills lack of a deep passing threat and an injury-depleted group of receivers has made it easier for opponents to crowd the line of scrimmage to key on stopping McCoy. We run the ball, thats what we do,Ž McCoy said of a Bills offense thats led the league in rushing the past two years. Myself, I make big plays. Thats what I do. Its been long enough.Ž Though the Buccaneers pass de fense is among the NFLs most porous, it has been spotty against the run. In his debut with the Cardinals last week, Adrian Peterson had 134 yards rushing and scored twice in Arizonas 38-33 win over the Bucs. The defense should get a boost with starting linebacker Kwon Alexander expected to return after missing four games with a hamstring injury. Im ready to get back and hit somebody,Ž Alexander said. Ive only got one tackle on the season, so Ive got to get my stats back up.Ž With a league-worst six sacks, the Bucs havent had one from a defensive end since Noah Spence had the teams only quarterback sack in a season-opening win over Chicago. Thats a big reason the team ranks 31st in pass defense, allowing 302 yards per game. Those numbers are not nearly what they need to be,Ž coordinator Mike Smith said. Weve got to get it turned around because if we dont, its going to be more of the same.Ž The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 SP Page 3BUCSFrom Page 1 Associated Press ReportsMIAMI GARDENS „ The Miami Dolphins rank last in the NFL in half a dozen major offensive categories and have been outgained by 363 yards this season. Yet because they keep winning close games, only three teams in the AFC have a better record. We r not normal,Ž reads a T-shirt players recently began to wear. That shirt would fit the New York Jets, who have been soft against the run and awful in the fourth quarter, but won respect in a loss last week. Not normal. Its also not normal for the two overachieving AFC East rivals to meet twice before the seasons halfway point, but their 2017 rematch comes today. The Dolphins (2-3) are coming off their best game of the season, a 20-17 victory at Atlanta. They rallied from a 17-0 halftime deficit against the defending NFC champions and jumpstarted an offense that totaled three touchdowns in the first 18 quarters of the year. Gase said the NFLs biggest upset of the week didnt surprise his team. We live in a different world in our building,Ž Gase said. What everybody else thinks and what we think are way off.Ž The rebuilding, surprising Jets (3-3are coming off their best defeat. An overturned Jets touchdown was the difference as they lost 24-17 to defending Super Bowl champion New England. New York began the season with low expectations, but is only a game behind the division-leading Patriots. Were probably a little disappointed that were sitting here at 3-3, but at the same time not discouraged,Ž quarterback Josh McCown said. We are improving every week in different areas, and we feel good about that.ŽJAGUARS-COLTS: Indianapolis center Ryan Kelly understands todays challenge. Make the right pass protection calls, and perhaps the Colts can add another chapter to their home mastery over Jacksonville. Make a mistake, and the Jaguars pass rushers could be off and running. Its a tough front seven,Ž Kelly said. Everybody knows the margin for error is pretty small in the NFL. If you miss one thing, theyll take advantage of that.Ž The stakes are pretty high for the Colts (2-4), who are one game out of the AFC South lead. Indys biggest concern this week is getting the seemingly ever-changing offensive line ready to face the leagues top sack teams. The Jags (3-3) lead the NFL with 23 sacks and in turnover margin at plus-10, numbers that correlate with their successes and failures. In three wins, Jacksonville has allowed 23 points, had 14 sacks and 11 takeaways. In three losses, it has allowed 87 points, had nine sacks and four takeaways. One week it was special teams, the other week we didnt touch a guy when he was down. Another week there mightve been turnovers,Ž coach Doug Marrone said. Were working our way through all this stuff and weve just got to learn to be more consistent on every down and in all three phases.ŽNFLAP PHOTOMiami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones, left, celebrates with Xavien Howard after intercepting a pass from Atlanta Falcons Matt Ryan during the final minute of an NFL game Sunday in Atlanta. Not normal Dolphins have rematch with Jets AP PHOTOLouisvilles Dae Williams scores a touchdown as he gets around the defense of Florida States Derwin James in the third quarter Saturday in Tallahassee. Louisville won 31-28. By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI GARDENS „ By Miamis new standards, this game was decided early. That means with a couple minutes to spare. Travis Homers 33-yard touchdown run with 2:48 left was the latest entry in No. 8 Miamis growing list of fourth-quarter magic moments this season, and the Hurricanes extended their longest winning streak in 15 years by holding off Syracuse 27-19 on Saturday. Well, we found another way to make it really exciting,Ž Miami coach Mark Richt said. Part of the reason was Syracuse is a really good football team. ... We, for some reason, cant find a way to play really good on both sides of the ball at the same time.Ž The Hurricanes (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) needed last-second plays to beat Florida State two weeks ago and Georgia Tech last week. This one wasnt so down-to-the-wire, but had plenty of drama until Syracuse turned the ball over on downs near midfield with 1:31 left and Miami kneeled three times to run out the clock. Malik Rosier threw for 344 yards and two touchdowns for Miami, which has won 11 straight and has won its first four ACC games for the first time since joining the league in 2004. Christopher Herndon had a career-best 10 catches for 96 yards and a touchdown and Jeff Thomas caught a 48-yard TD pass for the Hurricanes, who havent had a winning streak this long since winning 34 straight from 2000 to 2002. Its always a good feeling to win,Ž Homer said. But seeing your team stay strong and pull through, its the best. ... Were 6-0, but thats not our final goal. Thats not going to get to our head.Ž Cole Murphy kicked four field goals for Syracuse (4-4, 2-2), including a career-best 53-yarder with 5:23 left to get the Orange within 20-19. But Miami answered with a nine-play, 85-yard drive capped by Homers TD run that helped the Hurricanes escape. Miami harassed Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey throughout, intercepting four of his first-half passes and holding him to a 13-of-41, 137-yard effort. His last hope was a fourth-and-7 try on the last Orange drive, but his throw to Ervin Philips was incomplete and Syracuse „ which topped defending national champion Clemson last week „ fell short of pulling off a second straight upset. Theres a lot of positives,Ž Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. Its just, its hard to swallow when you dont win. Were 4-4, weve got the toughest schedule in the country and were 4-4. And guess what? Weve got two more on the road and two more at home in the loud house and I guarantee you were going to be ready to play those four games.ŽCOLLEGE FOOTBALL: HurricanesNo. 8 Miami survives Syracuse testAP PHOTOMiami quarterback Malik Rosier (12) throws a pass during the first half Saturday in Miami Gardens. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SeminolesCreques late field goal lifts Louisville over Florida StateBut the team kept grinding and the following year dominated the spring race at Kansas before a poor pit stop shuffled him back. The result nevertheless sent confidence soaring, and the team broke its 69-race winless drought at Pocono that summer „ and quite simply never looked back. With a new manufacturer in Toyota and a new alliance with Joe Gibbs Racing, the team won four times last season and cruised into the playoffs. That number has soared to six this season, and Truex needs to lead just 23 laps at Kansas on Sunday to break the 2,000 mark for the year. Its just racing. You never know,Ž Truex said. Well go race hard and I know well have what it takes to win, and hopefully we can get it done this time around.Ž All his success has quite literally paid off, too. The team announced last week it filled out its sponsorship for next season, which is never a guarantee even for top drivers these days. Bass Pro Shops and 5-hour Energy are sharing primary sponsorship, with Auto Owners Insurance helping out. For me, its terrific,Ž Visser said during the announcement. You dont see me dancing in the aisles, but inside I am. Martin has just delivered. Its just been remarkable what he and the guys have been able to accomplish. So, we have to attribute it to that.Ž Yet there are more, bigger goals still on the horizon, and that is why Truex has been pushing so hard during the playoffs. Every point matters in the race to Homestead and the series finale. You cant just turn it off, turn it on,Ž Truex said. We said coming into the playoffs that we have to try to just be who we are, play to our strengths, do things the way we know how to do them. I feel like if you try to lay back or if you try to step it up at certain points of time, you open yourself up for mistakes. You have to just push right on that edge that youre used to, comfortable with. Kansas has been an awesome track for us over the years in general,Ž he said, but really the last couple years weve been strong here. I feel like we understand this track really well.Ž Seems like most of the playoff contenders have figured it out. Truex will start alongside Kevin Harvick on Sunday, while Kenseth and Denny Hamlin make up the second round. Busch and Jamie McMurray will make up Row 4, with Keselowski and Johnson are in the next couple rows. Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott will start side by side in Row 7.NASCARFrom Page 1


Page 4 SP Sunday, October 22, 2017 / The SunBy DAVID GINSBURGAssociated PressANNAPOLIS, Md. „ Central Florida finally had been tested in a tight game, and someone wondered if coach Scott Frost enjoyed seeing how his team reacted to the situation. Heck no. I lost a year off my life tonight,Ž Frost said Saturday after the Knights 31-21 victory over Navy. You need close games because you need to see how your kids experience those situations, but theyre not fun. It was stressful.Ž Adrian Killins ran for 122 yards and two touchdowns, McKenzie Milton passed for 233 yards and the 20th-ranked Knights pulled out an excruciating victory to improve to 6-0 for the first time in school history. The Knights came in averaging 50.6 points with an average winning margin of 33.8 points. UCF didnt come close to matching either of those numbers, but it did end Navys 17-game home winning streak during the regular season. We knew we were in for a battle ,Ž Frost said. Were glad and lucky to get out of here with a win.Ž It was tied in the third quarter before Killins bolted down the right sideline for a 79-yard touchdown run to put the Knights ahead for good. Thats huge,Ž Frost said. Hes an eraser, and he erased a tie game.Ž Central Florida (6-0, 4-0 AAC) became bowl eligible and matched its win total of last year. The Midshipmen (5-2, 3-2) kept it close, but their chances of pulling off an upset dwindled after quarterback Zach Abey was forced from the game in the third quarter. Abey was dazed from a hit to the helmet at the end of a run and had to be helped off the field. Abey, the key figure in Navys triple option, carried 25 times for 126 yards and a touchdown „ his schoo l-record eighth straight 100-yard game. He also threw a touchdown pass. His backup, Garret Lewis, directed a 75-yard drive that got the Midshipmen to 24-21 with 12:50 left. Lewis and Navy got the ball back after Milton threw an ill-advised interception. The Midshipmen moved inside the UCF 40 before Lewis sent a late pitch to Darryl Bonner, who fumbled when hit by cornerback Brandon Moore. Moore recovered the loose ball with just over seven minutes remaining, and UCF freshman Otis Anderson scored the clincher on a 10-yard run with 3:30 to go. That last touchdown was huge. I was really happy for him,Ž Frost said.CENTRAL FLORIDAUCF wins record sixth straightCOLLEGE FOOTBALL AP PHOTOCentral Florida quarterback McKenzie Milton (10) gets tackled by Navy Cornerback Elijah Merchant (14) during the second half Saturday in Annapolis, Md. Associated PressMADISON, Wis. „ Jonathan Taylor ran for 22 times for 126 yards and a touchdown and Alex Hornibrook passed for two scores to lead fifth-ranked Wisconsin (7-0, 4-0) to a 38-13 romp of Maryland (3-4, 1-3). Playing in his seventh game, Taylor tied a major college football record shared by five other backs for fewest games by a freshman to get to 1,000 yards. Hornibrook shook off an interception on his second attempt of the day, finishing 16 of 24 for 225 yards to balance the offense. Linebacker T.J. Edwards returned an interception 54 yards for a touchdown to open the scoring for the Badgers with 12:18 left in the first quarter.NO. 18 MICHIGAN ST. 17, INDIANA 9: In East Lansing, Mich., Brian Lewerke threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Felton Davis with 5:59 remaining to lift the Spartans. Lewerke struggled for much of the game, but he was able to connect with an open Davis to the left side of the end zone. The extra point by Matt Coghlin put Michigan State (6-1, 4-0 Big Ten) ahead 10-9. On the next possession, the Spartans forced an Indiana punt „ one of 17 the teams combined for. Then LJ Scott ran 18 yards for a touchdown for Michigan State, which may have actually helped the Hoosiers because it gave them the ball back with 1:49 remaining and a chance to tie it. But Indiana (3-4, 0-4) wasnt able to cross mid“ eld before turning the ball over on downs. NORTHWESTERN 17, IOWA 10: In Evanston, Ill., Clayton Thorson ran a yard for the winning touchdown after connecting on a 23-yard pass on a third-and-9 play. Following Northwesterns score, Iowa moved the ball to the 18-yard line, but Nate Stanleys pass for Noah Fant on a fourth-and-3 play fell incomplete. Thorson “ nished 21 of 36 for 192 yards for the Wildcats (4-3, 2-2). Stanley was 19 of 33 for 223 yards with a touchdown and an interception for Iowa (4-3, 1-3).

Rutgers (3-4, 2-2) has consecutive wins in the league for the “ rst time since joining in 2014. Purdue (3-4, 1-3) outgained Rutgers 474-217 and had the ball for 85 plays, 30 more than Rutgers. Purdue drew within two points on a 10-yard pass from David Blough to Anthony Mahoungou with 25 seconds to play, but the Knights stopped the twopoint try. MINNESOTA 24, ILLINOIS 17: In Minneapolis, Kobe McCrary ran for 153 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, and Rodney Smith added 103 yards rushing for the Gophers. Linebacker Jon Celestin returned an interception for a touchdown in the fourth to provide the winning margin for Minnesota (4-3, 1-3).

Alabama outgained Tennessee 604-108 even with reserves manning the offensive backfield most of the second half. Scarbroughs two 1-yard scores came with defensive linemen DaRon Payne and Quinnen Williams as lead blockers. The Vols did snap a streak of 12-plus quarters without a touchdown after that move. Linebacker Daniel Bituli intercepted Tua Tagovailoas pass and raced 97 yards down the left sideline for a touchdown.MISSISSIPPI ST. 45, KENTUCKY 7: In Starkville, Miss., Nick Fitzgerald had 270 total yards and three touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs romp.

PITT 24, DUKE 17: In Durham, N.C., Darrin Hall. rushed for career highs of 254 yards and three touchdowns to lift the Panthers (3-5, 1-3). Hall broke a centuryold school record with his 92-yard touchdown run that came 18 seconds after Duke took a doubledigit lead. Pitt hadnt rushed for more than 208 yards as a team all season. This became the best day by an individual Pitt rusher since James Conner ran for 263 yards and three scores in a loss to Duke in 2014. Duke (4-4, 1-4) has lost four straight. Each of the last three has come by seven points.Associated PressMANHATTAN, Kan. „ Rodney Anderson ran 22 yards for the go-ahead score with seven seconds remaining, Baker Mayfield threw for 410 yards and accounted for four touchdowns and No. 9 Oklahoma rallied for a wild 42-35 victory over Kansas State.

They trailed 21-10 at the break, but proceeded to shred the overmatched secondary of the Wildcats (3-4, 1-3) in the second half to maintain a win streak at K-State stretching to 1966. Kansas State sophomore Alex Deltons first career touchdown pass with 2:25 left tied it at 35, but Mayfield and Anderson calmly went to work. Making his second career start, Delton finished with 161 yards rushing and three TDs while going 12 of 14 for 144 yards through the air.

LEGN PTDN O TGCLS EDVZOF VESHD: FDLN CPVOJD CPV NPHD ZPVOJD!Ž ARIES (March 21-April 19). If youre going to make an effort, you want to know what the point of it is. To feel theres a point that you havent seen or understood yet will not be enough -not today. Everything must have a known purpose. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can cast a spell on another person with your words. Its not something you take lightly. Youre quite aware of the responsibility that comes with your power. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your freedom is so important to you now that theres not a lot youd exchange for it. In particular, youll be careful not to accept favors from anyone who has the potential to throw down a restriction on you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youre not exactly nosy; rather, youre a very curious student of human nature. You watch, learn and predict. The more you learn the more accurate your predictions will be. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Its said that many a truth is spoken in jest. Arguably, the very nature of joking is turning all that pain into a phrase, a look, a crystalized communication of this acute shared human experience. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Here is a cheat sheet for the day. The answer to Why?Ž is, Why not?Ž The answer to How?Ž is, Just do it and youll find out.Ž The answer to Should I?Ž is, Probably not, but youd be a fool to let that stop you.Ž LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You sometimes wish you had a little more direction. People suggest things, but suggestion is not direction. A direct order by someone you trust is a kind of gift. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are a self-directed person living in a world in which everyone wants to tell you where to go, what to do there and how to do it. In order to do something your own way, youll have to shut everyone out and do it by yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Self-esteem is all about how you rate in the assessment test written by you, given to you and taken by you. After all, youve a certain reputation to uphold between you and you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This will be a sweet spot of days. As much as you love an adventure, you need rest, too. Real rest is when youre not adventuring. The comfort of this day will be a cocoon. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Patience and fortitude will be required of you. Go to bed early, because this challenge will continue through tomorrow. Rested, youll be at your best and in a position to figure out how to benefit immensely from the situation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You see what others dont. Unless you communicate it somehow, they will never know. Your sight is a talent and also, in a sense, a responsibility. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Oct. 22). Theres mystery in the air. The solar journey ahead is a prize behind the curtain. Education is a part of this in 2018. Youll meet many new people. Love will deepen. Youll travel in December and May. People who work for you will help you in practical ways to make things more comfortable and beautiful. Leo and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 42, 13, 33, 1 and 17. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.Ž „ Psalms 119:105.

Sunday, October 22, 2017ads.yoursun.netE/N/C The Sun Classified Page 11 Air fresheners are no match for Rotten Ron in Florida DEAR ABBY: My husband, Ron,Ž and I have been married for 49 years. When we retired, we moved to Florida. Ron is 71 and healthy. He rides his bike 30 to 50 miles every day. He also mows the lawn and takes care of all the gardening. The problem is, after all that activity in the heat and humidity, he doesnt bother to shower. Hell just change his clothes into whatever he wears for the nighttime. I have spoken to him about it, but I cant seem to get through. My three sons, ages 47, 43 and 42, dont want to speak to him about it because they dont live with us. For them, its only a temporary problem. Im at my wits end. I am sensitive to odors, and it has gotten to the point that I want to move out. Please, can you give me some ideas on what to do? The air fresheners I bought for his room are not enough. „ SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE SOUTH DEAR SOMETHING: You say you have been married to Ron for 49 years. Was he always so slovenly about his personal hygiene? If its recent, this may be something that should be brought to the attention of his doctor. As people age, their senses of sight, hearing and smell start to become less acute. If theres nothing wrong with those senses, could he be developing dementia? Frankly, that was my “rst thought after reading your letter. If thats not the case, is it possible that his poor hygiene is intended to keep you away? If thats the reason, then you have two choices „ give him an ultimatum, or ride it out. However, if you do the former, you must be prepared to follow through and accept the consequences. DEAR ABBY: Im a 13-year-girl who recently learned some devastating news. One of my good friends, Sasha,Ž is being abused by her parents. It happens a lot. They beat her with spatulas until they break. She has had broken bones because of them. Sasha told me shes thinking about suicide and has a plan to overdose on her ADHD meds. I thought it was time to tell someone, so I texted a tip to one of the teachers at our school and told them all about what had happened. One of my other friends told me it wasnt a good idea to do that because her parents will probably hurt her even worse because she told. I am really worried about her. Did I do the right thing? Is there any other advice that you could give me in order to help her? „ REPORTED ABUSE IN CALIFORNIA DEAR REPORTED: Not only did you do the right thing, you did it perfectly. When a friend con“des that she feels so hopeless that death is the answer, the appropriate response is not to keep it a secret, but to try to get her help. You did that, and I applaud you for it. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Shipping and handling are included in the price.New use for paint chipsDear Heloise: My husband and I did some remodeling around our home, which included repainting. I had several paint chips from the hardware store and didnt know what to do with them, so I used them as bookmarks for all the books I love to read. „ Nancy E., Norfolk, Va.Index cardsDear Heloise: In my job, I have to make calls on clients in their homes, so I carry 4-by-6-inch index cards with me to leave messages for people to let them know I was there, and when and how to contact me. The index cards are cheap and have much more room than the back of a business card (which I also leave) so I can leave little messages. „ Corrine T., Muncie, Ind.Traditional wedding with a twistDear Heloise: I want a very traditional wedding: long white dress, facecovering veil, bridesmaids and lots of ”owers. This is not my “rst wedding (I eloped the “rst time), but Im now divorced, with one daughter, age 7, and a terri“c guy who wants to marry me in a big wedding. I dont want to look foolish at my second wedding, so whats allowed and whats not? „ Ava H., Marion, Ind. Ava, best wishes on your coming marriage. Today, many brides wear white even if its not their “rst wedding. However, a face-covering veil traditionally is only for “rst-time brides. There are many other options available: a veil down the back, ”owers or a hat, to name a few. Go ahead and have bridesmaids, ”owers and whatever you want. Use your favorite colors, dance and have fun. This is your wedding, and the bride gets to have her wedding, her way. „ HeloiseHandyman is not on handDear Heloise: How do I “nd a handyman in my area? „ Kate L., Logan, Utah Kate, ask a few friends who they would recommend, who theyve worked with and if they were happy with the results. There also are various lists on the internet, and dont forget to check the Better Business Bureau for ratings on their services. „ HeloiseWipe it upDear Heloise: If I have a spot on something, I grab a diaper wipe. I have one container in every room and in my car. „ A Reader, via email Send a money-saving or timesaving hint to Heloise, P.O. Box 795000, San Antonio, TX 782795000, or you can fax it to 1-210-HELOISE or email it to Heloise@Heloise. com. I cant answer your letter personally but will use the best hints received in my column.Foundation fixDear Heloise: When doing my makeup, I apply foundation “rst and then concealer to the under-eye area. This way, I “nd I use much less product around my eyes, which can age them. „ Janet R. in TexasFrozen mealsDear Heloise: To stay on my diet and budget, I make a pot of stew, spaghetti or beans. I spoon a measured amount for one serving (3‡4 cup suits me) into a fold-over-top sandwich bag, held open in a glass, and I close it with a bread tie. Then I scatter the bags around in the freezer to keep them from clumping. As soon as they are frozen, I put them together in a bag or bowl and label it. Low-cost, nutritious, convenient meals! „ S.W., Ventura, Calif.Coffee saverDear Heloise: When opening a new can of coffee, I use a fork to puncture the foil. The coffee wont splatter out onto the counter. „ Pat P., Youngstown, OhioTowels hang outDear Heloise: I dont like wet bath towels, washcloths, etc., left lying in the bathroom, nor do I like them stuffed in the laundry basket in the laundry room to mildew and get stinky before I can wash them. I keep two clippie hangers in each bathroom. When the user is “nished, the towel is hung in the shower tub area to dry. Then the towel can be put in the laundry basket. Most department stores will give you hangers with clips. „ Carla N., via emailExtra rinseDear Heloise: I use the extra rinse cycle on the washer, and therefore dont need fabric softener or dryer sheets. My ironing time is cut down, too. „ Yvonne L., Mans“eld, Ohio You also can try also using less detergent. The less you put in, the less has to be rinsed out. „ HeloiseHELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY Dear Abby Hints from Heloise BOOK CORNER Each Quinn sister, in her own way, tries to be the good daughter but neither of these complicated, often prickly, women has come to terms with the horri“c crime that changed their lives in Karin Slaughters excellent sta nd-alone novel, The Good Daughter.Ž Samantha was 15 and Charlotte was 13 when two men forced their way into their rural Pikeville, Georgia, home looking for their father, Rusty, a disliked d efense attorney who townspeople believed served at the right hand of SatanŽ because his clientele includes allegedŽ murderers, rapists and drug dealers. Rusty was still at the courthouse, so brothers Zach and Daniel Culpepper take their hatred out on his family „ killing his wife, Gamma, shooting Samantha in the head and leaving her for dead, and terrorizing Charlotte, who managed to escape. Rather than uniting the sisters, the trauma coupled with anger and secrets of that day has estranged them for 28 years. Neither sister knows anything about the others life. Rusty calls Samantha, now a patent attorney in Manhattan, every Sunday, but she never speaks to him, only listens. Charlotte has her own practice in Rustys building, but shes determined to be a different lawyer than her father. For his part, Rusty cherishes his family more than they could ever know, but has always seemed more attuned to his clients needs. During a chance visit to the local middle school, Charlotte is caught in a school shooting in which teenager Kelly Wilson kills the principal and an 8-year-old girl. The violence that invaded Charlottes young life has in”uenced her daily actions and the school shooting reinforces those memories. Despite being an eyewitness, Charlotte cant reconcile the teen shooter she saw dressed in goth style with the shy, fragile and mentally slow Kelly she meets later. The shooting and Rustys frail health reunites Charlotte and Samantha. Slaughters research into how a person recovers from a shooting is skillfully woven into the plot. Slaughters assured writing, her solid plotting with outstanding twists and intense characterizations make The Good DaughterŽ a standout in a career highlighted by several superb novels.Review: Karin Slaughters Good Daughter has solid plotBy OLINE H. COGDILLASSOCIATED PRESS This cover image released by William Morrow shows The Good Daughter,Ž a novel by Karin Slaughter.

Feeling Fit PORT CHARLOTTE € PUNTA GORDA € NORTH PORT € ENGLEWOOD € ARCADIA SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2017 A WEEKLY SUN PUBLICATION WWW.FEELINGFIT.COM A midlife crisis doesnt have to be a crisis at all Roll up your sleeve, its flu season Scared of shots? Here are 7 things you can do to tame the fear Wanted: 1 million people to study genes, habits and health


Page 2 The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 Australia has had an early and severe ”u season this year „ and often the United States sees a similar pattern to Australia when ”u season reaches us, says Dr. Kerry Frommer Fierstein, a pediatrician with Allied Physicians Group Pediatric Health Associates in Plainview and chief executive of“cer of Allied Physicians Group. Australia gets their ”u before we do,Ž Fierstein said. For that reason „ and others „ families should be sure to be vaccinated as early as possible this year, Fierstein says. Flu season in the United States lasts from October to April. That means getting the vaccine this month if possible, and certainly by Thanksgiving and the December holidays, when people are exposed to crowds, she said. The strain of the ”u thats causing hospitalizations and even deaths in Australia is one of the four strains covered in this years ”u vaccine, Fierstein said. This year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is once again recommending that children 6 months and older be vaccinated. And its putting the kibosh on the nasal vaccine „ in which the virus was sprayed into kids noses, avoiding the need for a needle stick „ because it hasnt been effective enough in preventing the illness. I cant imagine theres anybody whos offering it,Ž Fierstein said. Pregnant women as well as family members of babies younger than 6 months especially need to be vaccinated to protect the fetus and babies who cant get the vaccine themselves, Fierstein said. While the vaccine may not prevent 100 percent of ”u cases, it may lead to a milder case if one contracts the ”u. Its your best chance,Ž Fierstein said. The best thing you can do to prevent the ”u is to get vaccinated.ŽRoll up your sleeve, its flu seasonBy BETH WHITEHOUSENEWSDAY For the second year in a row, the Centers for Disease Control is telling doctors not to give patients FluMist, the nasal spray flu vaccine, and thats a problem for kids and adults who are scared of needles. Kids reactions to shots may range from a mild anxiety to a full-blown meltdown, say area pediatricians. How many kids experience a fear of shots at some time in their lives? 100 percent,Ž said Mike Steiner, the division chief of general pediatrics and adolescent medicine at UNC Health Care. At some age, every kid has a fear of getting a shot,Ž Steiner said. Its basically a universal experience.Ž And if the fear is not resolved it can turn into a problem for them as adults, causing them to avoid medical services over fear of injections. This may be a good time to deal with and navigate through this,Ž said Ravi Jhaveri, a pediatric infectious disease specialist with UNC Childrens Hospital. Needles are a fact of life, whether for a vaccine or a blood test.Ž So if you have a kid who runs, faints or puts up their fists at the sight „ or thought „ of a needle, how do you deal with it? Here are some suggestions from area doctors.1. Ask your doctor about a new needle-free vaccine available for children as young as 5 years old. The vaccine, called Afluria, is administered under high pressure directly through the patients skin. In September, it was approved for children age 5 and up. The most common side effects are tenderness, itching and bruising.2. There are ways to minimize the physical sensation of a hypodermic needle. Ask your doctor or nurse to use numbing creams, lidocaine patches and ethyl chloride spray. Another technique is to press the thumb firmly into the childs arm, producing a temporary soreness than can mask the sensation of the flu shot.3. If your child is truly needlephobic, talk to your doctor about whether anti-anxiety medication is needed.4. If your child is simply anxious, try distractions: play games, ask questions, tell stories, sing songs, blow bubbles, show a movie or a cellphone video. Pre-schoolers can be caressed in a parents arms and comforted gently.5. Dont shame or humiliate. Acknowledge the fear as genuine and help your child work through it, even if it requires seeing a therapist. Most people do not have an insurmountable phobia, but many have an instinctive aversion to foreign objects entering the body.6. Dont lie to your child that the doctors visit wont involve a shot or that that the shot will be absolutely painless. Dishonesty and trickery could exacerbate your childs fear and distrust.7. Dont be afraid to abandon ship. Ive had parents decide not to give it if the child is really fearful or upset at the appointment, but I havent ever had to cancel the vaccine if the parents are OK with us trying,Ž pediatrician Sophie Shaikh with Duke Childrens Primary Care in Brier Creek, wrote in an email. For something that is recommended but considered more optional, such as the flu vaccine, we will take our lead from the parent. We obviously want to avoid traumatizing a child!Ž And dont give up hope. More solutions could be on the way. Steiner said that last month, at the annual conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics, he saw a vendor promoting virtual reality goggles as an emerging tactic to calm jittery kids during shots. Researchers at Georgia Tech are working on a Band-Aid like patch with dissolvable microneedles that deliver the flu vaccine. The testing is in early stages yet, but a clinical trial at Emory University found the vaccine was just as effective as the traditional needle and syringe and was well-tolerated by test participants. One tester told NBC News it was like pressing down on the hard size of Velcro.Scared of shots?

The 41-year-old Chicago marketing manager, who is single and has no commitments, “nally decided that shed had enough of her mundane life. I wanted to do more,Ž Wilson said. I have a nice little nest egg, and I reached a point in my life where I just dont know what to do.Ž Last month, she left her comfortable job with a steady salary to embark on a six-month, 10,000-mile solo trip, “rst hiking through Switzerland, followed by a road trip through the western United States with her dog to “gure out where she wants to live next. Wilson, who described her current life stage as a midlife crisis, said that many of her friends are going through similar phases. Were all feeling, Oh my gosh, Im halfway to 80. Is this what I really want from my life?Ž A midlife crisis, as popularly understood, refers to an emotional reaction to the realization that your life has time limits, said Janice Morris, an Austin, Texas-based psychologist. The reaction typically involves anxiety or fear that the ways we have spent our time, along with the choices we have made, are not important enough, enjoyable enough or consistent with some ideal sense of self,Ž Morris said. But these desires to live the life you truly want to live dont simply occur at midlife. Sometimes, a death of a loved one, or an accident or illness, a divorce or the loss of a job can stimulate these re”ections and the desire to make changes, Morris said. Often, it occurs when people view their current road map as no longer applicable, which is why James Hollis, a Washington, D.C.-based Jungian analyst, doesnt like to limit the term midlife crisisŽ to a single decade of your life. It can rise when they retire, or are downsized, or when the children leave, or they face illness and loss,Ž Hollis said. But, he said, often this turbulence does arise in the 30s and 40s because whatever psychology the person has been serving does not bring the sense of satisfaction expected.Ž Its a time to consider redirecting ones life. But these crises dont usually affect every demographic. The midlife crisis typically occurs in educated people who have the luxury to worry about what they want from their lives, as opposed to those who have to simply focus on making ends meet, said Ronald Levant, professor of psychology at the University of Akron in Ohio, and former president of the American Psychological Association. They also typically happen between the ages of 45 and 64, but can ultimately happen at any age when youve established your adult life structure: you have a partner, a career, children and a comfortable home. Essentially, youve made it, and your dreams are realized. Like a lot of dreams, people attach fantastical expectations to it: When I get to be a full professor, Im going to walk on air because Ill be so happy,Ž Levant said. But once you get to be an established adult, your life becomes more or less routine: You have child care, time with your partner „ there isnt a great big rush that everyone imagines.Ž Thats when you start wondering if this is the life that you really want, and you start questioning your identity. At this point, some will make rash changes, like changing careers, having affairs, moving across the globe or getting a red Chevrolet Camaro. Depending on the person having the crisis, the changes can be positive, but they can also be negative. The healthier outcomes of re”ecting on ones life might look like the decision to lose weight and exercise more,Ž Morris said. Others will change careers, go back to school or move to a different part of the world. Smaller changes could include starting a new hobby. Often the midlife crisis is accompanied with therapy to “gure out how to understand yourself better. Ultimately, these crises are an attempt to ful“ll yourself. A midlife crisis, no matter what time of life it occurs, is an opportunity to learn more about ourselves, to understand and accept the choices weve made and the limitations we have, and to work past the obstacles to claiming more of the life we wish to live,Ž Morris said. But for most people, this feeling passes, so its wiser not to take action,Ž Levant said. Its also wise to reflect on where it might be coming from „ unrealistic expectations of what your adult life might bring you.Ž Exploring these ideas through counseling also could help. Sometimes, however, acting on your feelings can lead to a happier life. Levant said he had a student who quit his job as a lawyer and went back to school to become a psychologist. Now, hes happy, Levant said. But more often, impulsive changes spurred by a midlife crisis, like divorce, or a change of career or lifestyle „ arent ultimately satisfying, Hollis said. He said that its necessary to meet with a therapist to figure out the driving force behind the midlife crisis to really fix the problem, instead of simply acting out as a result of it. Without this level of genuine self-examination, why would one expect a new car or a simple change to really resolve their mental state?Ž Hollis asked. The second half of life is about recovering a better relationship to ourselves, from which a different set of choices will emerge.Ž The midlife crisis is an opportunity to learn more about yourself, and to understand and accept the choices youve made, along with the limitations you have, and to work past the obstacles to claim more of the life you wish to live, Morris said. If done with thought and care, the midlife crisis doesnt have to be a crisis at all.A midlife crisis doesnt have to be a crisis at allBy DANIELLE BRAFFCHICAGO TRIBUNE TNS PHOTOLeigh Wilson, 41, left her comfortable job with a steady salary to embark on a six-month, 10,000-mile solo trip, rst hiking through Switzerland, followed by a road trip through the western United States with her dog to gure out what she wants to do next.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 Page 5 Over the years, a number of questions have been asked about the Fusion One program. In this article, the answers to the most popular ones will be presented. The four questions selected and answered are the following: € What is Fusion One? € What does it consist of? € What bene“ts are offered by the program? € How does it compare to other programs like tai chi and yoga? The Fusion One program was created over 25 years ago to address many of the health problems and concerns that existed at the time (and still exist today). It has affected the lives of thousands of people, both nationally and internationally, and has become the holistic health and self-healing program of choice for many. In addition to its many concepts and techniques, Fusion One makes use of a series of exercises that constitute three distinct forms: a lying form, a seated form and a standing form. It is through the use of these forms and the levels they represent that the system is able to „ safely and effectively „ address the health needs of people of all ages and states of health. The health bene“ts offered by Fusion One are numerous. First, the program has the ability to improve ones balance by increasing muscle strength (especially those of the legs), improving ones control over his/her posture and by increasing the functioning of the many proprioceptors that are found within the muscles and tendons throughout the body. In addition, Fusion One has shown that its movements and positions possess a number of performance elements that facilitate relatively high degrees of muscular strength and ”exibility. Many of the exercises of Fusion One are designed to target and build speci“c muscles and muscle groups. The majority of these exercises can be performed, quite safely, by the elderly and persons with certain medical conditions. If ”exibility is what you desire, Fusion One is able to increase your existing degree and because the program avoids rapid or jerkyŽ movements, injuries are quite rare. In addition, because a majority of the positions of Fusion One are held for long periods of time (one minute or longer) and the elements of relaxation and proper breathing are utilized, these elements, working in combination, seem to establish a physiological state that enhances muscular expansion. A “nal point regarding the bene“ts of Fusion One has to do with physical therapy prescription. If you received physical therapy and are certain that you have exhausted all your sessions, an option to consider is Fusion One. The program offers a vast number of therapeutic exercises that have helped others regain their strength, balance, ”exibility and mobility. The hundreds of testimonials received from practitioners of Fusion One are not the only testament to the effectiveness of the program, a number of studies have also been done. A study conducted in 1993 by the Ryusui Center in New York showed that, when compared to yoga, the exercises and techniques of Fusion One were safer and easier to learn. Furthermore, when compared to tai chi, the Fusion One program was more comprehensive and offered bene“ts that were more immediate and greater in number. A second study conducted in 1994 by the Ryusui Center showed what practitioners of Fusion One had known for years; the program offered a host of health bene“ts. A third study conducted in 1999 by Tiririka Of Florida Inc., duplicated the study of 1994 and obtained similar results. For more information on Fusion One, call 941-624-4175, ext. 263.

Page 6 The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 In a quest to end cookie-cutter health care, U.S. researchers are getting ready to recruit more than 1 million people for an unprecedented study to learn how our genes, environments and lifestyles interact „ and to “nally customize ways to prevent and treat disease. Why does one sibling get sick but not another? Why does a drug cure one patient but only cause nasty side effects in the next? Finding out is a tall order. Today, diseases typically are treated based on what worked best in short studies of a few hundred or thousand patients. We depend on the average, the one-size-“ts-all approach because its the best weve got,Ž said Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health. Thats changing: The NIHs massive All Of UsŽ project will push whats called precision medicine, using traits that make us unique in learning to forecast health and treat disease. Partly its genetics. What genes do you harbor that raise your risk of, say, heart disease or Type 2 diabetes or various cancers? But other factors affect that genetic risk: what you eat, how you sleep, if you grew up in smog or fresh air, if you sit at a desk all day or bike around town, if your blood pressure is “ne at a check-up but soars on the job, what medications you take. Not to mention differences based on age, gender, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomics. Layering all that information in whats expected to be the largest database of its kind could help scientists spot patterns, combinations of factors that drive or prevent certain diseases „ and eventually, researchers hope, lead to better care. The DNA is almost the easiest part,Ž Collins said. Its challenging to “gure out how to put all that together to allow somebody to have a more precise sense of future risk of illness and what they might do about it.Ž Pilot testing is under way, with more than 2,500 people who already have enrolled and given blood samples. More than 50 sites around the country „ large medical centers, community health centers and other providers like the San Diego Blood Bank and, soon, select Walgreens pharmacies „ are enrolling patients or customers in this invitation-only pilot phase. If the pilot goes well, NIH plans to open the study next spring to just about any U.S. adult whos interested, with sign-up as easy as going online. Its a commitment. The study aims to run for at least 10 years. The goal is to enroll a highly diverse population, people from all walks of life „ speci“cally recruiting minorities who have been under-represented in scienti“c research. And unusual for observational research, volunteers will get receive results of their genetic and other tests, information they can share with their own doctors. Anything to get more information I can pass on to my children, Im all for it,Ž said Erricka Hager, 29, as she signed up last month at the University of Pittsburgh, the projects “rst pilot site. A usually healthy mother of two, she hopes the study can reveal why she experienced high blood pressure and gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Heading the giant All Of Us project is a former Intel Corp. executive who brings a special passion: How to widen access to the precision medicine that saved his life. In college, Eric Dishman developed a form of kidney cancer so rare that doctors had no idea how to treat him, and predicted he had months to live. Only two studies of that particular cancer had ever been done, on people in their 70s and 80s. They didnt know anything about me because theyd never seen a 19-year-old with this disease,Ž said Dishman. Yet he survived for two decades, trying one treatment after another. Then, as he was running out of options, a chance encounter with a genetics researcher led to mapping Dishmans DNA „ and the stunning discovery that his kidney cancer was genetically more like pancreatic cancer. A pancreatic cancer drug attacked his tumors so he could get a kidney transplant. Im healthier now at 49 than I was at 19,Ž said Dishman. I was lucky twice over really,Ž to be offered an uncommon kind of testing and that it found something treatable. Precision medicine is used most widely in cancer, as more drugs are developed that target tumors with speci“c molecular characteristics. Beyond cancer, one of the University of Pittsburghs hospitals tests every patient receiving a heart stent „ looking for a genetic variant that tells if theyll respond well to a particular blood thinner or will need an alternative. The aim is to expand precision medicine. Why me?Ž is the question cancer patients always ask „ why they got sick and not someone else with similar health risks, said Dr. Mounzer Agha, an oncologist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Unfortunately I dont have answers for them today,Ž said Agha, who says it will take the million-person study to “nally get some answers. Its going to help them understand what are the factors that led to their disease, and its going to help us understand how to treat it better.Ž And NIHs Collins expects surprises. Maybe, he speculates, Type 2 diabetes will turn out to be a collection of genetic subtypes that require varied treatments. This looks at individual responses to treatment in a way we couldnt do previously with smaller studies.Ž The study starts simply: Volunteers get some standard health checks „ weight, blood pressure and heart rate. They answer periodic questionnaires about their health, background and habits and turn over electronic health records. They give a blood sample that, if they agree, will undergo DNA testing sometime next year. Eventually, researchers will ask some participants to wear sensors that may go beyond todays Fitbit-style health trackers, such as devices that measure blood pressure while people move around all day, or measure environmental exposures, Collins said. In Pittsburgh, the Rev. Paul Abernathy made a health change after signing up for the pilot study: Surprised to learn his BMI was too high despite regular weightlifting, he began running. Im praying I have the discipline to continue that, certainly in midst of a busy schedule,Ž said Abernathy, who directs the nonpro“t Focus Pittsburgh that aids the poor and trauma victims. We have a chance really to in”uence history, to in”uence the future of our children and our childrens children,Ž added Abernathy, who hopes the study will help explain racial disparities such as lower life expectancies between African-Americans and whites who live in the same areas. At NIH, Collins plans to enroll, too. Hes had his DNA mapped before but cant pass up what hes calling a one-in-a-million experience to be part of a monumental study rather than the scientist on the other side. Im curious about what this might teach me about myself. Im pretty healthy right now. Id like to stay that way.ŽWanted: 1 million people to study genes, habits and healthBy LAURAN NEERGAARDAP MEDICAL WRITER AP PHOTOIn this Aug. 7 photo, Kenneth Parker Ulrich, left, a research technician at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, prepares to collect a blood sample from Erricka Hager, a participant in the All of UsŽ research program in Pittsburgh.

Ribbon-cuttingNEWS & NOTES | 12 U.S. regulators on Wednesday approved a second gene therapy for a blood cancer, a one-time, custom-made treatment for aggressive lymphoma in adults. The Food and Drug Administration allowed sales of the treatment from Kite Pharma. It uses the same technology, called CAR-T, as the “rst gene therapy approved in the U.S. in August, a treatment for childhood leukemia from Novartis Pharmaceuticals. In just several decades, gene therapy has gone from being a promising concept to a practical solution to deadly and largely untreatable forms of cancer,Ž FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said in a statement. The treatment, called Yescarta, will cost $373,000 per patient, according to drugmaker Gilead Sciences. Kite became a subsidiary of Foster City, California-based Gilead this month. CAR-T treatment uses gene therapy techniques not to “x disease-causing genes but to turbocharge T cells, immune system soldiers that cancer can often evade. The T cells are “ltered from a patients blood, reprogrammed to target and kill cancer cells, and then hundreds of millions of copies are grown. Returned to the patient, all the revved-up cells can continue multiplying to “ght disease for months or years. Thats why these immunotherapy treatments are called living drugs.Ž Todays approval of Yescarta is a very signi“cant advance for lymphoma patients and for the cancer community as a whole,Ž Louis J. DeGennaro, president of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, said in a statement. Immunotherapy is dramatically changing the way we approach blood cancer treatment.Ž Kites therapy is for patients with three types of aggressive, or fast-growing, large B-cell lymphoma. The most common one accounts for about a third of the estimated 72,000 new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosed each year. Yescarta, also known as axicabtagene ciloleucel, was approved for patients who have already been treated with at least two cancer drugs that either didnt work for them or eventually stopped working. At that point, patients are generally out of options and only have about a 10 percent chance of even temporary remission of their cancer, said Dr. Frederick Locke, director of research for the Immune Cell Therapy Program at Mof“tt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. Locke helped run patient tests of Yescarta. This is really an exciting advance for patients without hope,Ž Locke said. Yescarta is not a benign treatment, though: Three people died after getting the treatment, which can cause serious side effects. The FDA is requiring Kite to do a long-term safety study and train hospitals to quickly spot and handle those reactions. In the key test, Yescarta was given to 101 patients. About 72 percent saw their cancer shrink and about half showed no sign of disease eight months later. While it is billed as a one-time treatment, because the patients cancer is so far advanced, it returns in some. The therapy is still working in most study participants, so the average duration of its effects isnt known yet. A different type of gene therapy is waiting in the wings at the FDA. Spark Therapeutics treatment for a rare form of blindness could be approved within months. It aims to improve vision by replacing a defective gene needed to process light. Other gene therapies for blood cancers are being tested and scientists think they may work for solid tumors within several years.US regulators approve 2nd gene therapy for blood cancerBy LINDA A.

BAYFRONT NEWS & NOTESBefore we explore the power of love and kindness, lets examine what we understand to be the true or intrinsic value of these two words. Although we can look it up in a dictionary, isnt it true that if we look within us, we may know their value as well as how we feel when we receive love and kindness? Find a safe and comfortable place, close your eyes take a deep breath and remember when you felt love and kindness. Was it walking barefoot on the beach or in the yard feeling embraced by the warm sand or earth? Was it when a life partner looked into your eyes seeingŽ and appreciating the true you? Was it when your child or grandchild hugged you and said youre so soft or cuddly? Or was it when you were playing with a dog or cat? Select a precious experience and remember how you felt. Did you feel that the true value of what you are about was recognized, af“rmed and enjoyed? Did you feel that in that moment there was nothing expected in exchange, but for you to just be you? If so, that is a part of the shared expression of love and kindness. It is to give, share the best energy within us without expecting anything in return. This implies that we must be aware of what is the best energy in us. In part one through four of the series we spoke about our energy or spirit being deeply rooted as a tree, which bends and bounces back in the storms of life. We explored what a person can do to sustain a fresh outlook by being kind to our bodies and selective in what we feed our minds, which can impact not only how we feel about ourselves, but how we treat others. When we choose to practice the lessons learned from trees, we live a life of love and kindness full of power and endless resources. Trees are hosts to a variety of species like birds, lizards and spiders. They are a safe haven for the chrysalis that protect the pupa of butter”ies. Finally, many trees continue to give back even when they are decaying or in the dying process. Lets continue to thrive in life, staying connected to sustainable sources, which support a self-awareness process that helps us thrive, enjoy life and embrace others with powerful loving kindness. Lets rediscover the best energy in us while we experience life.

Page 10 The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 If youre from Michigans Upper Peninsula, known as the UŽ P,Ž you may be a hearty survivalist. Its better to be woodsy and outdoorsy to enjoy the two months of summer that are available to you. Some might say you need true grit to live there. Dr. Sharon MacLaren, native of the UP, has that true grit and many in Charlotte County can attest to her character. As former Learning Place director at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, she made a positive community impact. Now she teaches occasional classes at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys satellite, the Renaissance Academy, in Punta Gorda, and is active as a volunteer with two community non-pro“t organizations, the Charlotte Players and the Phantoms of the Orchestra. MacLaren grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan on the shore of Lake Superior. She was a swimmer and active in numerous sports although she never felt comfortable running any distance. She enjoyed starting her summers with a Memorial Day dip in the lakes. Many times the ice was not completely melted,Ž said MacLaren. In those times, she swam a mile of the crawl stroke most days. Later in life, as she experienced shortness of breath, doctors told her it was just asthma. Intuitively, she knew it was something else. She put her suspicions to the side and placed higher education as her priority. Like a UP lumberjack, she would “ll one degree after another, starting with a bachelors in biology, then a masters degree, and then a PhD in biological sciences and higher education administration. MacLaren began teaching at her alma mater, Wayne State University as a biology lab instructor. She then opened the biology program at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan. She returned to Wayne State to teach in the higher education department and worked in the administration there. MacLaren was awarded an American Council of Education Fellowship in 1972, and moved to Florida where she put in brief administrative stints at the University of Florida and the Chancellors Of“ce in Tallahassee, “nally settling on an administrative position at Florida State University. From Florida, MacLaren moved to Connecticut where she served as Dean of St. Joseph College in West Hartford. From there, she came full circle to work at Lake Superior State University. Retiring from higher education, MacLaren stayed busy. As an owner and operator of a rental business, a restaurant and a tour business, there was little down time. Still she found time to volunteer in many community organizations. In 1990, she and her long-time partner Arline Fitzmaurice were awarded the Women Entrepreneurs of the State of Michigan. A few years later,. MacLaren was awarded Volunteer of the Year for the Historical Society of the State of Michigan. My quality of life has always been good,Ž she said. In 2000, MacLaren found out that her asthma was really a serious disease. Feeling her rapid decline was due to a heart condition, she went into Mayo Clinics Walk-in Center while traveling through Rochester, Minnesota. Turns out the culprit was not her heart, it was emphysema, caused by a lethal genetic disease called Alpha 1 „ antitrypsin de“ciency. Her educational background laid the foundation of understanding her condition and how genes provide the code, or instructions, to our bodys cell that give us our unique traits and fatal malfunctions. Alpha 1 is a genetic glitch that gets passed from parents to their children. People with Alpha 1 lung disease have one or two abnormal genes (one from each parent). It is estimated that 25 million people carry at least 1 de“cient gene. MacLaren inherited two of these de“cient genes. These de“cient genes have been traced back to a mutation that occurred in Northern Europe, so descendents of Northern Europe are more prone to get the disease. Not all the population with Alpha 1 develops attributable disease, because the presentation of symptoms depends on the type of mutation. But everyone with Alpha 1 is robbed of his/her ability to make a protective protein that protects lung and liver tissue. Without this protection, many will acquire emphysema and/or cirrhosis of the liver. Although there are a variety of skin conditions and other associated maladies that may come with Alpha 1, MacLaren has been spared the other complications and liver disease. Still, shes never quite out of harms way. This past February, she was hospitalized with pneumonia. After a hospital stay and a “ght with the infection, her shortness of breath and lack of physical endurance became problematic. Now back in Florida, MacLaren took her doctors advice, and returned to pulmonary rehabilitation at Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center in the hopes of getting back her strength and endurance and taking charge of her lung disease and active and healthy lifestyle. After an evaluation by Sherwin Carpiso, a licensed physical therapist and Denise Leazenby, a certi“ed respiratory therapist, her therapy was customized for her condition. To get a baseline of her physical status, the rehab team initiated a six minute walk test. All the while, her oxygen level, heart rate and blood pressure were monitored. She as then introduced to specialized equipment including a recumbent bike, arm peddlers, treadmills and eventually under-water treadmills. Her baseline exercise tolerance was recorded and compared against future sessions. To keep her from becoming too short of breath, MacLaren wore a nasal cannula attached to an oxygen concentrator that delivers a continuous ”ow of oxygen throughout her exercise regimen. Being attuned to water exercise, MacLaren ”ourished in aquatic therapy directed by experienced therapist Nell Resnick, PTA. For her home exercises, shes in the water doing water aerobics, the crawl and breast stroke. I can even do one full lap of the crawl now,Ž she said. Shes had other gains as well. When she “rst started therapy, she could only walk a couple of minutes and needed several breaks,Ž reported Leazenby. Now, after weeks of therapy, she can walk the Port Charlotte Town Center mall with a portable oxygen concentrator for a half hour with no break. Whats truly unique about her,Ž said Leazenby, shes able to overcome the odds of this disease, and that in itself is rare. Shes an inspiration to anyone “ghting and living with severe lung disease.Ž When asked how she outmaneuvers negative possibilities, MacLaren said her doctors say that her good lifestyle habits may have secured her health and longevity. But it wouldnt be a stretch to believe that her unusual survival lessons may have come from early life in the UP.

The Sun /Sunday, October 22, 2017 Page 11 Valerie Bunt doesnt look like your typical breast cancer survivor. A mother to a thriving 8-year-old, Bunt usually spends her days working in her familys legal headhunting “rm and caring for her daughter. She has long brown hair, with no evidence of the toll of chemotherapy. And strangers dont know about the surgery scars that stretch over her chest and behind her right shoulder. But what throws people off most is her age. At 33, Bunt ”ies under the survivor radar at breast cancer events and hospital appointments. One woman even praised her for wearing a breast-cancer shirt and being a great supporter.Ž It happens,Ž she said later that day, recounting the long journey from before her diagnosis in 2011 to her status now as a survivor. They dont think its me. And then they ask, How old are you? They dont know anyone whos been in that scenario.Ž Breast cancer is an increasingly visible cause „ especially in October, when the whole world turns pinkŽ for breast cancer awareness month, said Bunts stepmother, Abbe Bunt. But survivors under 40, a small but increasing fraction of those diagnosed with the disease, say they are combating the perception that breast cancer is an older womans disease. Many of them didnt expect a diagnosis in their “rst decade or two of adulthood, before mammograms are recommended for screening. Nor did some of their early doctors, who initially discounted the possibility their lumps might be cancerous. I was one of those people who believed young kids got cancer or older people got cancer. I thought the middle age was OK,Ž said Valerie Bunt, who lives in Davie. About 7 percent of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer are younger than 40, though the number of new cases has slowly been increasing since the mid-1990s, according to the American Cancer Society. Part of the reason, said Dr. Carmen Calfa, Bunts oncologist at the Plantation campus of the Sylvester Cancer Center at the University of Miami, is that certain protective factors like having children earlier and breastfeeding are declining. Other factors involving hormonal changes can also play a role, she said. When cancer does surface in younger patients, it tends to be more aggressive and more advanced, she said. Its a different biology when cancer happens at a younger age.Ž Those earlier and more aggressive onsets mean younger patients also face different challenges. They have to determine how to balance budding careers and fertility issues and, given their life expectancies, how to manage longer-term care after they are diagnosed. Being diagnosed when younger can also leave more of an impression on friends and family, if only because it is rare, said Gladys Giron, a surgical oncologist at the Miami Cancer Institute. Who expects a 35-year-old to have a breast cancer diagnosis, or someone in their 20s? Because theyre younger, they dont expect that.Ž Bunt was 25 when she “rst felt the peasized lump in her right breast and went to a surgical oncologist. Her mother had had cystic breasts, and as a result, there was always this fear of breast cancer,Ž she said. But that doctor told her youre too young to have breast cancer,Ž she remembered. She had been trying to breastfeed her infant daughter, Alyssa, at the time. Alyssa had been born premature, and the doctor suggested that the lump was just a clogged milk duct. Bunt couldnt shake her worry. She had started losing weight „ so much so that soon she weighed less than she had before she had gotten pregnant. A few months later, the lump had spread into what felt like a gravel road, with small pebblesŽ extending from under her breast and toward the center of her chest. Bunt said she remembered walking into her stepmothers of“ce, stripping off her shirt and lying down on the carpet to show the bumps she felt under her skin. Find me someone who will take me seriously,Ž Bunt remembered demanding. Somethings wrong.Ž Bunt went back to the hospital to another doctor, who ordered a sonogram, then a mammogram, then a biopsy. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2011, about “ve months after she had “rst found her lump. It was Stage 2. Bunt quickly began an aggressive treatment plan, starting with a bilateral mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. It was a bombardment,Ž stepmother Abbe Bunt said. Valerie Bunt also realized she had to grapple with issues that older patients usually escape, including medically induced menopause and the possibility that chemotherapy might make her infertile. Bunt, an only child, didnt want her own daughter to grow up without a sibling and opted to have her eggs frozen, with some “nancial help from the Livestrong Foundation and a fertility doctor who agreed to do the procedure for just the cost of anesthesia.WORSE THAN THE DIAGNOSISDafne Mora les Pogoda, 35, found herself in a similar situation last year when she was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. She didnt have children, but didnt want to rule out the possibility either. She was already grappling with her diagnosis and now youre going to tell me that I might not even have babies,Ž she recalled thinking. That was even worse than the diagnosis itself.Ž Freezing her eggs, she said, was like taking insurance on that possibility: Its like 28 babies waiting for you in the freezer, waiting for you to go back to being healthy,Ž she said. Pogoda, of Miramar, had also just started a job as an assistant manager at a pharmaceutical company, and found herself balancing her job „ literally, with a laptop while in the chemotherapy chair „ and hospital appointments, she said. Ive always been the person who is working,Ž she said. She didnt miss any work while she was undergoing treatment, she said.A CROSSROADThe range of ages among younger patients with breast cancer coincides almost perfectly with the shifting period in which women tend to be caretakers for multiple generations, said Eileen Tome of Miami Lakes, who was diagnosed with breast cancer not long after her youngest son turned 3. Thats when everything is happening in our lives: careers, relationships, long-term relationships, children.Ž Tome, who has “ve children, was diagnosed last summer when she was 46, just a year after doctors recommended women get mammograms to screen for breast cancer. But, she said, she hadnt had a mammogram in four years. It kept getting bumped down to the end of the listŽ amid other responsibilities, said Tome, who was treated at Baptist Health South Florida. Bunt, already juggling an infant daughter, discovered the same. At points in her treatment, she said, she was scheduling two to three doctor appointments a day. After her surgery, she went through nearly a year of chemotherapy and radiation, before going on hormone therapy, on and off, to mitigate her risk. Now, a little over “ve years after her last radiation treatment, Bunt is still mindful that her cancer could come back. Testing indicates that she is at high risk for a recurrence of her cancer between the 5to 10-year mark. But, she said, she has become more aware of her body „ and the signals that something might be wrong. Im doing all these things to make sure I can see my daughter get married, walk across the stage to get her degree,Ž she said. Ive done literally everything I could do.Ž She said she plans to make sure her daughter also learns to be self-aware and advocate for her own treatment, in case this ever happens to her. Shes going to be monitored a little closer than she would be otherwise.ŽBreast cancer is more visible than ever, but young survivors fight to be seenBy ELIZABETH KOHMIAMI HERALD Cancer support groupFawcett Memorial Hospital, an HCA af“liate, now offers a cancer support group for cancer patients, their families and caregivers. The group meets the last Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Research shows that social support has bene“ts for cancer patients, those recovering from treatment and their family and loved ones by reducing anxiety and stress, emotional distress and depression, fatigue and the experience of pain while improving mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control. In addition, having a supportive social network can help with recovery and adjusting to life after treatment. The support group allows those experiencing a cancer diagnosis to cope with the emotional aspects by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges while allowing people to learn from others facing similar situations. Cancer patients and their family members are encouraged to attend. Active participation is not required, listeners are welcome. Physicians and other health professionals will periodically speak to the group on cancer related topics. For more information or to RSVP, please call Fawcetts oncology patient navigators at 941-624-8318.Breast cancer networkingBreast Cancer Networking in Venice offers support and sharing with other breast cancer survivors.

Page 12 The Sun / Sunday, October 22, 2017 Several million older Americans have been diagnosed with atrial “brillation, the abnormal heart rhythm abbreviated as A-“b, because they experienced symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness and shortness of breath. Yet many others may have the heart condition without realizing it, raising their risk of stroke, according to a new study coauthored by Main Line Health cardiologist Peter R. Kowey. Kowey and his coauthors monitored 385 older patients who were at risk of A-fib because of diabetes, high blood pressure, and other telltale indicators but who had not been diagnosed with the rhythm disorder. Physicians implanted a slender wireless rhythmrecording device beneath each patients collarbone. The longer the patients were followed, the more they experienced at least one episode of A-fib lasting six minutes or more, the authors reported in the journal JAMA Cardiology. Six months into the study, 20.4 percent of patients were found to have A-“b. After one year, that “gure rose to 27.1 percent. By 30 months, 40 percent of patients were determined to have suffered at least one episode of this type of abnormal rhythm. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 9 percent of people age 65 and up have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Kowey, of Main Lines Lankenau Heart Institute, said the disease was clearly more common than that, but he could not say just how common because the new study focused only on patients deemed to be at high risk. Patients with atrial fibrillation are typically counseled to take blood-thinning medications called anticoagulants. That is because during an episode of A-fib, the patients blood may stagnate and form a dangerous clot, leading to a stroke. Yet strokes can occur weeks after the heart rhythm has returned to normal, suggesting that they might not be directly caused by A-fib, Kowey said. Instead, the higher rate of stroke may stem from a related symptom: scarring on the atrial walls. People are starting to believe that A-fib is a signal that the atrium is sick,Ž Kowey said. The rate of stroke in older people is about 1 percent to 2 percent per year. Among those diagnosed with A-fib, the risk is roughly three times that high, Kowey said. After the study, anticoagulants were prescribed for 72 patients who were found to have undiagnosed A-“b. Kowey said patients in the general population with silentŽ A-“b may also bene“t from taking the drugs, though trials are underway to make sure. The study was funded by Medtronic, which made the wireless monitors that were implanted in the patients.A-fib heart problem more common than thought, doctor findsBy TOM AVRILTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER Punta Gorda Civic Association, 2001 Shreve St.Eighth Annual Tour de North PortPeople for Trees Inc., a local nonpro“t native tree advocacy group, will host its annual Tour de North PortŽ bicycle ride on Oct 22. Its the Green Pumpkin!Ž will feature the citys unspoiled beauty, natural settings, and parks along the Myakkahatchee Creek.

In a statement sent to media outlets, the Virgin Islands government said Royal Caribbeans 3,114-passenger Adventure of the Seas would be the “rst cruise vessel to return to the island on a regular sailing since the back-to-back storms. Irma and Maria caused widespread damage across St. Thomas, knocking out power, ripping roofs from homes and stripping foliage from vegetation. The government of the U.S. Virgin Islands has been racing to restore the territorys top tourist areas so it can reopen to visitors. Tourism accounts for an outsized portion of the Virgin Islands economy, and the livelihoods of thousands of Virgin Islands residents are dependent on visitors, ocials have said. Welcoming cruise visitors back to the U.S. Virgin Islands is key to our economic recovery,Ž tourism commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty said.

Gene SloanShips return to St. ThomasDISPATCHES Adventure of the Seas returns to St. Thomas Nov. 10.JOE CAVARETTA,APTRAVEL Each week, former airline pilot and aviation safety consultant John Cox answers questions from USA TODAY readers about ”ying. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions and answers.QIm going on my “rst ”ight soon and Im petri“ed. Do you have any tips?AI understand your trepidation and apprehension. It is not uncommon for “rst-time ”iers. A few things to remember: 1. Aviation is the safest form of public transportation in history. You are safer ”ying than when you are in your automobile, walking on a sidewalk, riding a train, taking a bus or being on a boat/ship. 2. The professionals that maintain and ”y the airplane are some of the most highly trained in the world. Additionally, trained evaluators check their skills and competencies regularly. 3. The maintenance of aircraft is very detailed and frequent. Airplanes have more redundancies than other forms of transportation, which results in increased reliability and safety. 4. Airplanes ”y because of physics, just as boats can ”oat on water. Some people look at an airplane and ask, How does something that heavy ”y? It can because of the laws of physics and the proper shape of the wing. There is no mystery to it. 5. Aviation is one of the most regulated industries in the world. The close oversight of government regulatory and safety organizations has proven to be eective. Those are a few of the many reasons to relax and enjoy your upcoming ”ight. You will experience a totally new vantage point from which to see the world. QDoes having only two engines increase risk when ”ying over oceans?ANo, the reliability of modern jet engines is so good that ”ying over oceans or remote locations is not risky. One consideration is that more engines increase the possibility of one of them having a problem. The regulatory authorities have very strict standards for twin-engine overwater operations. I”y over oceans in twin engine airplanes many times each year with no concern about the risk of engine failure.QIf a twin-engine plane has one engine that fails midway over the Atlantic, what options do the pilots have?AEngine failures are very, very rare, but should one occur, the airplane can safely ”y to an alternate airport, the airport of origin or the airport of destination. On overwater ”ights, the en route diversion airports are planned before departure. If there is a need to divert „ for an engine problem or any other issue „ the pilots have the plan in place.QMy friend, an airline captain, tells me that the bigger the plane, the more backup systems on the aircraft. So are A380s, 747s and 777s safer to ”y?AThe A380, 747, 777 are certainly safe. So are other airliners like the Airbus A320 family, the Boeing 737 family, 757, 767, A330/340, A350, 787, Embraer 135/145, EMB 170/190 and Bombardier CRJs to list a few. Airliners are safe. The larger airplanes have a larger number of redundant systems due to their size but that, by itself, does not mean one airplane is safer than another.QIs there ever turbulence that concerns the pilot?APilots do not like turbulence, but because the designers of modern airplanes have such a safety factor built in, there is no concern about damaging the airplane. The concern pilots do have is that passengers will not have their seat belts fastened and will be injured, or that a ”ight attendant will not be secured in the jumpseat.QWhy do ”iers ignore the fasten seat belt sign?AThe captain illuminates the sign when there is a possibility of turbulence. Turbulence is unpredictable, and often will not occur. This causes people to believe that there is no risk. This is a false belief. If the seat belt sign is illuminated, passengers should remain in their seat. If physiological reasons make a visit to the lavatory imperative, the passenger must assume the risk. QWhen lightning strikes an airplane, are you safer in the air or on the ground?AIn the air, airplanes are designed to dissipate the lightning quickly. I have been ”ying airplanes that were struck multiple times and there was little or no damage sustained. All the surfaces are bonded, giving the lightning a pathway to pass back into the atmosphere. On the ground there is a risk to people on the ramp if the airplane discharges the lightning. For the passengers there is very little or no risk in either situation.QIve noticed that when inbound to an airport, the pilot begins decelerating the aircraft sometimes a half-hour prior to touchdown. Why dont they go faster longer?AUsually the speed reduction is due to air trac control instructions. As the trac near an airport backs up, the speed is reduced. New navigation procedures show the promise of maximizing maintaining cruise speed and altitude as long as possible.QHave you ever gotten lost while taxiing at an airport?ATaxiing, particularly at a large airport in limited visibility at night, can be very challenging. Many of the modern airliners have electronic maps with the position of the airplane displayed, which helps. Those that do not have electronic displays require the crew to have taxi charts. Ihave never been lost, but have taxied slowly and been very careful to follow the taxi clearance, using input from the “rst ocer.QAre there any mandatory announcements that a captain has to make?AOnly if there is an emergency condition and the captain must tell the ”ight attendants and passengers to Brace!Ž All other announcements are up to the captain.QDo you have a favorite airport to land and take o?AThere are special things about several airports: Landing on runway 13 in LaGuardia from the south provides a spectacular view of Manhattan as you ”y up the Hudson River. Flying into Key West with the beautiful clear water and picturesque boats in the harbor is always enjoyable. One of my most vivid memories was departing from Boston Logan over the shipping channel as the tall ships were sailing. For me, the most beautiful airport is San Francisco: The mountain and the bay combine to make a spectacular sight. Commercial aircraft, including the Airbus A350 XWB, undergo detailed maintenance and its pilots are highly trained.

FORTMYERS, FLA. With bathroom humor and a toilet-paper ribbon-cutting, a wildlife refuge in Florida rolled out its newest exhibit: learning lavatories. Its no joke. These are working public restrooms and a covered walkway located at the J.N. DingŽ Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island. Theyve morphed from institutional bland to bold „ with animal sculptures and murals. Theyve gotten more green,Ž aka environmentally friendly. Its a work in progress: Soon the graphic displays will sport a few factoids. We wanted to transform a necessary nature call into an innovative nature enthrall,Ž cracked refuge manager Paul Tritaik, speaking to a throng of about 30 friends and staers at Fridays grand reveal of the restroom redo. The restroom project originated from identifying a major missed opportunity for educating visitors,Ž said Birgie Miller, executive director of the DingŽ Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge. Each year, the refuge welcomes nearly 1 million visitors to Wildlife Drive, the four-mile, one-way road that takes motorists, cyclists and hikers through portions of the preserve that are home to more than 200 species of birds, alligators, mangrove forests, and more. Only about a quarter of those who travel Wildlife Drive step into the refuges Visitor/Education Center to see all of our wonderful educational exhibits,Ž Miller said. Admission to the education center is free. It has interactive exhibits about theanimals living in the refu g e, knowled g eable folks who can “eld questions „ and a gift shop. It also oers visitors tools to better explore outdoors, including binoculars for loan while in the refuge, a guide to duck calls, and information about a free smartphone app on which users can view real-time wildlife sightings, post pictures, and play a wildlife trivia game. The entrance to the education center is just a few steps away from the public restrooms. It seemed plausible the restrooms could be changed to call more attention to the education center. The refuge friends group enlisted creative people, hatched a plan „ and raised the money. A$125,000 grant from the West Coast Inland Navigation District and contributions from private donors paid for the restroom renovations. Local artist Andrew Corke fashioned a mother and bab y manatee out of recycled bike tires. North Carolina artist David Williams sculpted other creatures out of foam and “berglass, and painted the murals. In coming weeks, the restroom stall doors will be wrapped with wildlife imagery and some snippets of nature knowledge. Visitors Paul Brown and Laurel Brown of Long Island, N.Y., toured the restrooms. They have ahome on Sanibel, and over the past 21 years walked through and driven throughŽ the refuge many times.

Books about popular music typically play into the cult of personality, too easily losing sight of the subtext and source of pops power. When a study comes along that goes deep „ for example, Greil Marcus Mystery Train or Alex Ross The Rest Is Noise „ were awakened to cultural connections that can expand our appreciation of the sounds we often take for granted. Now, Ann Powers has delivered another such classic with Good Booty (Dey St./William Morrow, 448 pp, eeee out of four). Subtitled Love and Sex, Black & White, Body and Soul in American Music,Ž this richly researched, passionately argued survey gets down, with persuasive rhetoric and narrative momentum. It makes the case that American pop is one long, nuanced continuum energized by a hardfought battle for sexual and racial liberation. Powers voice challenges pop mediocrity in her role as NPRs music critic, and here she declares that American music originates in the bodies of its people, in the pull of a moan from the throat and spine-loosening roll of the hips. From the beginning, it scandalized those who didnt understand it, or maybe felt its impact too well.Ž She refutes the lazy notion that rock nroll began in 1956 „ with the fusions and appropriations of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and others „ and traces it as far back as the early 1800s, when church worshipers worried their pastors by doing more than merely singing their Sunday hymns. They were shaking it, baby, shaking it,Ž writes Powers of themoments when the ring shoutŽ rocked rural AfricanAmerican churches. A”uid series of movements blended with call-and-response singing,Ž the shout was a deeply ingrained vestige of the horror Africans experienced „ and fought with their voices „ on their way to America, locked down on the slaver ships sailing the Middle Passage. Powers then guides us to the musical breeding ground of New Orleans, where American pop takes root in an erotic loam of mixed-blood Creole culture. There, slave life struggled for freedom amidthe sex trade of the citys Storyville and in Congo Square, an open “eld on the outskirts of town where dancing ”ourished and the mythos of an American sound and style was born, embodied by the ”irtatious cocotteŽ and the dandyish candio,Ž a template for male rock and soul stardom.Ž Its no accident that Little Richards signature sex-coded smash, Tutti Frutti was recorded down the road from Congo Square in 1955. (The phrase Good BootyŽ was part of the original song, though it was changed to aw rootyŽ to protect white sensibilities, and remains a deathless descriptor in soul, funk, and hip-hop.) From there, Powers takes us on amore familiar journey „ through jazz, blues, gospel, the teen-driven era of the 1950s, the sexual revolution of the 60s, groupie culture, the blues thefts of Led Zeppelin and its newly pornographic musical eroticism,Ž to Britney, Beyonc, and the Virtual FrontierŽ of today. Pops a huge universe, of course, and Powers cant account for all of it, but her insights and historiography are sharp, and her larger point „ that American music refracts and re”ects a profound struggle for freedom „ resounds.Booty gets to the bottom of pop Beyonc has had a huge impact on popular culture as well as music. SHAREIF ZIYADAT, FILMMAGICExhaustive history explores the power and in”uence of American music REVIEW Powers Matt DamskerSpecial for USA TODAY tion to both Julius and his store, though some are more intimately entwined than others. Each characters story sparks interest, but their promising tales feel short-changed by an abundance of added characters with even more romantic trials and tribulations. Theres Dillon, a groundskeeper; Jackson, a single dad trying to make his own way; June, a bookshop employee; Alice, the daughter of Sarah Basildon; and Bea, a young mother and city transplant. The novels ”ow is steady and even, and its story lines, with ups and downs, all fall easily into place. And while that makes for neat endings, it does not always make for a gripping read. The drama of possibly losing the bookstore is anticlimactic, buried between myriad stories that spread many of the novels story lines a little thin. But drama, or lack thereof, isnt everything. For many readers, there really is something magical about bookstores „ the smell, the atmosphere and of course, the books. And in the end, Henrys novel reminds us of just that. Meant to appeal to book lovers, Veronica Henrys How to Find Love in a Bookshop (Pamela Dorman Books/Viking, 339 pp., ee1‡2) is a love letter to books and the shops that sell them. Unfortunately, while heartfelt, the novels love stories are spread a little thin, almost as though they were abridged. Set in the idyllic English town of Peasebrook, nestled in the Cotswolds, the story opens with Emilia Nightingale sitting at her fathers deathbed. She has ”own back to Britain from Hong Kong, where she has been living and working. While there, she promises her father she will keep his beloved book store open. The bookshop, Nightingale Books, is more than a business to Julius. It also is his home „ hes lived in a ”at above the shop since shortly after Emilias birth. When Emilia takes over the shop, she learns that while her father may have been skilled at “nding just the right book for just the right customer, he was in no way an expert at business. Emilia is left with a shop running in the red, more customers perusing her books than purchasing and a land developer waiting to pounce. Along the way, Emilias life intertwines with the lives and loves of several characters. There is Sarah Basildon, the lady of the stately Peasebrook Manor; Thomasina Matthews, a worldclass chef and culinary instructor who is anything but worldly when it comes to the opposite sex; Marlowe, a professional musician who played alongside Julius in the towns string quartet and a potential love interest for Emilia; and Ian Mendip, a developer who has his own plans for Nightingale Books. All four have a stron g connec-Lovely Bookshop carries too few novel plot pointsEven with a large cast and lots of stories, Love still comes up alittle short REVIEW MARY CADDEN Veronica Henry BOOKS Mark Firth doesnt know what to make of Philip Hadi, the New Yorker who left Manhattan shortly after 9/11 to bring his family to Howland, a working-class town in western Massachusetts Berkshire Mountains. Firth, a contractor, is happy to have Hadis business; he was hired to beef up security at the home Hadi usually left vacant for all but the summer. But he understands little about how Hadi made his money or his reasons for moving to Howland. Unlike most people in town, Hadi has money, lots of it, and the clash between the towns residents who want to emulate him and those who resent his in”uence drives the action of Jonathan Dees captivating new novel The Locals (Random House, 400 pp., eeegE ). Dee deftly works in the same territory as novelists Russell Banks and Richard Russo to show life in the parts of the Northeast left behind by the modern economy. Mills have closed, jobs are gone, and there are only so many yoga retreats able to provide jobs. Somehow, the residents of Howland elect the low-key and private Hadi as their First Selectman, essentially the mayor. Hadi uses his own money to balance the towns books, which eases the tax burden but warps its democracy. Which, Hadi says, may have outlived its usefulness. He also starts to chip away at the traditions that, however ragged, kept Howland alive. The tension is between those who want to emulate Hadi and those who want him to go away. Mark Firth is among the former. He starts to buy, rehabilitate and then rent houses in and around town, which fattens his checking account but alienates his family. His younger brother, Gerry, sells real estate, drinks too much and sleeps around when he has the chance. His sister Candace “rst teaches school and then “nds a job at the local library. Only a second sister, Renee, lives outside of a 30-minute drive, in Colorado Howland, they eventually realize, is a Potemkin village. It falls to Gerry Firth, often drunk and fuming behind his laptop as he writes a little-read blog, to set o the confrontation that drives the towns “nal crackup. The mood in the town was dark; everyone felt under attack,Ž Dee writes. The response was not to come together but rather to protect everything one had against the depredations, real or imagined, of others.Ž Dee, who lives in Syracuse, N.Y., excels at capturing the feeling in these places whose best days, if they ever really existed, are decades gone by. His knowing gaze and elegant writing work well throughout The Locals which is infused with a sense of desperation and dread. The novel stumbles somewhat near the end, however, seeming to run out of steam. Howland, as shown byDee, might be a good place to get gas on the way to Stockbridge or Great Barrington, but you wouldnt want to live there.Author Dee captures asense of place and and dread in a small town that has been left behind REVIEW RAY LOCKER Jonathan Dee The Locals is a sad trip into forgotten America USA TODAY LIFE SUNDAY,OCTOBER22,20175
