Two Port Charlotte men were arrested Saturday in connection with a shooting that occurred around 2:30 a.m. on the 3200 block of Port Charlotte Blvd. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce reported that the gun used in the incident was an M&P AR-15. No injuries were reported. According to a CCSO arrest report, Kevin Scott Roe, 21, and Aaron Phillip Fordham, 27, borrowed a silver SUV from an acquaintance. They drove to the location of the incident and proceeded to drive up and down the road, passing by the house multiple times. Roe admitted to shooting at the house, then turning around in the vehicle and “ring again. He said he “red eight to 12 times. He claimed that Fordham and a third suspect persuaded him to shoot at the house. A third person was believed to be involved, according to the arrest report, but there were no other arrests reported Sunday. The house involved in the shooting was the residence of Fordhams ex-girlfriend. Although she did not see Fordham or Roe at the time of the shooting, she told investigators she believed Fordham was mad at her because she didnt want to be around him anymore. Earlier Saturday, she had been with a female friend at a bowling alley in Port Charlotte. While sitting in a car in the parking lot, she said Fordham approached her and the other friend. In the arrest report, the ex-girlfriend said Fordham had pointed a long gun at her and the friend, rack(ed) MURDOCK „ Sales tax revenues continue to exceed expectations, paving the way for a potential surplus that could go toward additional projects. The 2014 local option 1 percent sales tax initiative estimated revenue of about $18 million annually, or a total of $108 million over the sixyear length of the extension. But after three years, Charlotte is averaging $23 million annually in sales tax revenue, or about $15 million ahead of projections. At this pace, the county could reap an extra $30 million through 2020. Our collections are still strong,Ž said Travis Mortimer, capital projects manager for the county. Furthermore, since some sales tax projects are coming in under budget, the county is on track to spend just $102 million in sales tax Sales tax collections strongBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERTAX | 6 SHOOTING | 6NORTH PORT „ Jill Luke is not “nished yet. The commissioner, who is currently representing Seat 4 on the North Port City Commission, “led for the District 5 spot on Friday. In 2012, the public voted to switch commission at-large seatsŽ to districts.Ž Under the new rule, those representing the district need to live in that speci“c area. Luke has been serving in the commission since May 2017, held then by Jacqueline Moore. If Luke would win, this would be considered her second term. But still, she plans to use the next four years to make an impact in the city. I have enjoyed it, I worked in the community while I was in the business world so its taken it up a notch to serve the community and work for them,Ž Luke said. There has been a learning curve but I enjoyed it and I plan on learning more and doing all I can for the community.Ž She is the “rst candidate to “le for District 5. On her to-do list are many things she and the commissioners have already started: a plan for Warm Mineral Springs, widening Price Boulevard. But she has some other topics that have yet to reach the dais, including creating a more comprehensive feel in the city. I would love to see a plan that would connect the neighborhoods and community far more readily,Ž she said. Having a bridge over Myakka that would connect a road to Honore (Avenue).Ž She believes in the last year she has proved her business knowledge can be helpful in the city. I believe my experience with the business world has helped me with a broader sense of things,Ž Luke said. The “nancial aspects, I understand a little easier because Ive handled budgets before.Ž Luke previously ran Patriot Storage before selling the business. Most commissioners experience a learning curveŽ in the “rst few months in of“ce, Luke included.

The city has two motels, the Warm Mineral Springs Inn and the Motel 6. But with a population projected to grow to 200,000 people by 2030, according to a study by Fishkind and Associates, and an in”ux of Atlanta Braves fans even sooner, where are guests supposed to stay? Efforts from the city Economic Development program manager Ruth Buchanan spends her days trying to get more to come to the city: retail, “ne dining and hotels. Over her eight years in the of“ce, she has inched her way to progress. The city is growing and the economic indicator that developers look at to convince them to build a hotel are here. We have the rooftops, the residential growth, the retail growth and the jobs,Ž Buchanan said. And then we have the Braves coming here and our tourism is on the uptick and Sarasota County is doing so well with visitor numbers. So were enjoying all that.Ž Buchanan said developers look beyond the city limits and look at a trade areaŽ which is 30 miles of the city.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia VENICE „ After months of negotiations, the Sarasota County School Board is set to vote on the tentative salary agreement for teachers and classi“ed staff Tuesday. The board would vote on a tentative two-year agreement for the 2017-18 school year and 2018-19 school year. Superintendent Todd Bowden came under “re during negations in January for his offer of a 1.3 percent raise. His suggested pay increase caused a protest by teachers, who showed up ahead of the Jan. 9 meeting in Sarasota. If the agreement passes Tuesday, effectiveŽ teachers would receive a 3.25 percent increase; highly effectiveŽ teachers, a 4.25 percent increase. Non-instructional employees would see a 3.75 percent increase under this new deal. The two-year deal also includes a starting salary of $43,150 for new teachers. If the board approves the tentative agreement, teachers and staff would see retroactive pay during the March 15 pay period, according to the district. In addition to the bargaining agreement, the board will also vote on the new science textbooks. The selection process for the textbooks began in September, and the books approved on Tuesday would cover a “ve-year period for students in grades 6 through 12. In the “nal approval will be the cost of getting the books, which is based on student enrollment and a 3 to 7 percent shipping fee. The projected costs of the new books is about $1.2 million for the district. In addition to new textbooks, the board will also approve a proposal for new computers through Hewlett-Packard. According to the district, this is year one of a four-year plan to refresh computers throughout schools. According to the district, computers less than five years will be moved to other district schools. Also under new business, the board will approve its updated equity policy, as well the charter school policy. At the start of the new school year the board began to work on editing its policy book for language and updating items. The board has been working to update the policies for the last few months and will vote Tuesday to add them to the policy book. The “nal item of new business will be approve the date change of the workshop and meeting dates. During its February workshop, the board agreed to move the March 20 meeting to March 22, due to the referendum. The Sarasota County School Board will meet at 6:30 p.m. March 6, at Venice City Hall, 401 W. Venice Ave., for its monthly board meeting. Meetings are broadcast live on The Education Channel, Comcast channel 20 and Frontier channel 33. Meetings are also streamed live on the districts website www. sarasotacountyschools.net.

The North Port City Commission previously discussed the Complete StreetsŽ ordinance in January 2016 after a brief staff overview. The commissioners directed staff to create a policy to review. The new policy covers a slew of safety changes to create a comprehensive, integrated transportation network with infrastructure and design that allow safe and convenient travel along and across streets for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, persons with disabilities, motorists, movers of commercial goods, users and operators of public transportation, seniors, children, youth and families.Ž Another lengthy topic in the past was updating code language to be consistent with Florida state statues for wireless infrastructure, particularly with right-ofway utilization. This will be the third reading for the ordinance. The commissioners will also possibly “nalize the creation of an environmental advisory board and writing a letter of support for a Suncoast Technical College grant application. The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6 in commission chambers. All meetings can be viewed online at cityofnorthport.legistar. com/Calendar.aspx.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 5, 2018 The surrounding areas „ Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Venice, Englewood „ all have hotels, which can lead to developers building elsewhere that has a proven track record. Its a combination of market forces and timing and competition,Ž she said. They have a new hotel in Punta Gorda; another in Venice; Sarasota County has another one.ŽEfforts from the county Hotel rooms are on a quick uprise, according to Virgina Haley, president for Visit Sarasota. But the new buildings are not necessarily up to Haley to bring to North Port. She said she is usually approached by hotel “nancing consultants or bank consultants. Its never up to us because I dont “nance hotels,Ž she said. And sometimes it can act as a bit of a mystery.Ž But when those interested do reach out to Haley, she said she pushes for North Port „ even if the developer has never heard of the city. Theres cases we go almost out of our way to show the need for a hotel,Ž she said. And that would be one of the things we did in North Port...Weve promoted the fact that the Braves are coming, when people call „ even if theyre not looking in North Port „ I make sure they know about North Port, which often times they dont,Ž Haley said. Ill tip off Ruth (Buchanan) or shell tip me off so its a team effort to create awareness.Ž Haley is optimistic the Braves training stadium will serve as a catalyst for lodging. If you asked me if we would get one this time next year, I would say no,Ž she said. But now that (the Braves) delayed (their spring training schedule) the number of inquires had for North Port has de“nitely jumped. There seems to be some serious people that are interested, so now we have to see if they numbers work.Ž The construction delay set the current opening for April 2019. The Braves will play most of their 2019 Spring Training season in Lake Buena Vista before moving to North Port. Issues with getting a hotel For any of the cities in the region, numbers and location are key as attraction factors. To be considered a valuedŽ spot, a hotel cannot be too far away from an interstate and also has to have a strong sense of the community its in, according to of“cials. Haley said Englewood can have dif“culties because of its proximity to a county line. Places in western Charlotte County are not near major roads, which makes them less desirable. When it comes to numbers, Buchanan said North Port simply has trouble keeping up with surrounding areas. The main thing is when we have communities in the trade area, there are cheaper hotel prices and some are even being land-granted,Ž she said. So its hard for a private developer in North Port that already spent the money to do the land development, the permit fees, water and sewer to compete with a similar land that is basically zero cost with some stipulations.Ž She said she may push more on giving some help to developers. Whats happening now is Im vetting the idea with our leaders,Ž Buchanan said. I brought the idea to the community Economic Advisory Board „ I have to check their recommendation but Id say yeah, lets tell (North Port City) commissioners (to give) some incentive to land a hotel or two.Ž Haley agreed, pointing back to a 2015 feasibility study done by the county. Were still not quite there (in terms of numbers),Ž Haley said. It seems as though with the cost to build, the cost of getting water lines, and sewer, the permitting, the numbers arent quite where they need to be: the cost to build it versus what it could get return in the “rst three years.Ž For Lorah Steiner, director of Charlotte County Tourism, her challenge is a double-edged sword: surrounding markets and her own county adding more hotel rooms. The number of (Sarasota County) rooms is a concern for us,Ž she said. If you take those „ plus the rooms being added to Lee (County) and Naples „ you probably have 2,300 to 2,400 rooms. Thats a lot to add to the market. So if demand doesnt increase to meet that, then rates can be repressed and „ if we have a recession with not as many people to “ll the rooms „ thats a problem. Were hoping for a positive economy and continue to soar.ŽHow does Charlotte County do in hotels? Overall, Steiner said there is not too much concern with getting hotels in the county „ and that can attributed right back to the movers and shakers in the community. The two newest buildings coming to the area originate from the Patel family who already owns hotels in the county and the other is from longtime developer Bruce Laishley. Theyre more familiar with the market, they live here and it tends to work out that way,Ž she said. Many of her efforts in attracting visitors goes beyond Charlotte County and more toward the region. I really dont look at it that way (as competition with other counties),Ž she said. Florida is unusual. Once people are here, they go up and down the coast. The point is to get them to the Southwest coast. If they stay in Sarasota this year, they may stay here next year and vice-versa.Ž As for North Port, Steiner advised staffers continue pounding the pavement and she also believes results will follow. Sometimes, you would have to go and sell more aggressively,Ž she said. But with the Braves, I would be really surprised if there werent a horde of developers looking to build very soon.ŽEmail: lcoey@sun-herald.com HOTELSFROM PAGE 1 SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTOWhile other parts of the region have hotels, North Port itself has yet to have a major chain take a reported interest in buildi ng one. Ocials hope that changes with the arrival in 2019 of the Atlanta Braves Spring Training stadium.FROM PAGE ONE The Florida Legislature struggled to “nd support for the political middle Friday, as the Senate postponed for one day a vote on a school safety package that includes provisions opposed by both the National Ri”e Association and gun control activists. The lawmakers response to the Parkland shooting, SB 7026, would arm some teachers, raise the age to purchase and possess an assault ri”e in Florida from 18 to 21, and spend $400 million to strengthen school security and fund mental health counselors. The proposal is opposed by the gun lobby, which considers the increase in age for all gun purchases and the introduction of a three-day waiting period on all gun purchases an unfair assault on law-abiding gun owners. But it has also drawn opposition from unexpected corners because of a provision to allow trained teachers to be deputized by law enforcement to carry concealed weapons in the classroom. Gov. Rick Scott, some law enforcement of“cials, and the legislative black caucus are opposed. The wide-ranging opposition had legislative leaders scrambling to rework the proposal to “nd enough votes to narrowly pass the measure through the House and Senate. By the end of Friday, one potential compromise had emerged: instead of arming teachers, train school staff, such as coaches, hall monitors and other personnel, to carry concealed weapons. Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart, said the idea came from the governor who has ideas about non-teaching personnel „ coaches, security monitors, administrators and others „ perhaps being on the front lines of protecting the schools.Ž The idea of training and arming teachers was proposed by Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd and has become a top priority of House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land OLakes. Black lawmakers, however, said they will vote against the bill until the provision arming teachers is removed, arguing that it may disproportionately target black students. But the head of the NRAs Florida chapter, Marion Hammer, said Friday that her organization could live without the program to arm teachers as so-called marshals, as long as whatever lawmakers pass includes more armed law enforcement in schools. Were not married to either plan,Ž she told the Herald/Times. We just want armed security in the school to protect the kids.Ž The Senate had planned to take up its version of the plan Friday, but with the measures success in doubt, Senate leaders decided to call the bill back and revise it, rather than push through last-minute changes. The result was legislators spent Friday “nding a new middle ground and the Senate will hold a rare Saturday session. There are huge differences between the House and the Senate and within the House and the Senate. There is no consensus. The votes arent there,Ž said Sen. Linda Stewart, an Orlando Democrat, just after Senate leaders announced they were going to delay the vote another day. They are trying to “nd something that is in the middle, and its dif“cult. The majority of the people we represent dont want a middle ground.Ž The dilemma has also brought into sharp focus the fact that many legislators are elected for taking a position on the extremes and are not rewarded for moving to the middle because of the way Floridas districts are drawn. On the right, the NRA has increased its pressure, prompting several legislators to fear being challenged in a primary by a candidate backed by gun rights activists if they support the measure. On the left, groups like the Pride Fund to End Gun Violence, a national LGBTQ political organization, have started running public service announcements critical of the NRAs hard line. Several organizations, including the League of Women Voters, have urged Democrats to hold a hard line in support of a ban on assault weapons. For Republicans, especially conservative Republicans, the base is guns and life and, if you abandon the Second Amendment and in any way diminish constitutional rights that are guaranteed under the law, you are basically alienating your base and putting any re-election or upward mobility in jeopardy,Ž said Rep. Joe Gruters of a Sarasota, a long-time Republican party of“cial. He said the risk is greatest for those who are running for higher of“ce and he predicts that any Republican running for the state Senate or a Cabinet of“ce will oppose the bill because of the gun access provisions. Its the fear of having to run against somebody who has the endorsement of the NRA and being out”anked on the right,Ž Gruters said. Sen. Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa, complained that law enforcement is against, the NRA is against, and you could drive a truck through it and there are members from rural districts in this state that are in a headlock tonight because theyre being instructed to vote for it.Ž Sen. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, who is shepherding the measure through the chambers said the delay give the Senate time to line upŽ its bill with a plan that could be passed by the House, where the NRAs in”uence is strongest. But he also rejected the notion that legislators were working to appease the interest groups. We had a tragedy just a couple of weeks back,Ž he said. What we should be concerned about is not what group likes what, but if we can put a meaningful safety package together „ and pass it „ thats going to save lives.

Memorials in the Sun E v e r y T h u r s d a y o n l y i n Warm Mineral Springs man served in Special ForcesJohn Fanning served four years in Vietnam during 17 years in ArmyIn May 1950, John Fanning, joined the Connecticut National Guard because it was where the socially connected met to party. A month later, in June, the 21-year-old Army recruit learned his unit provided more than good times. He marched off to war in Asia when his out“t was federalized shortly after North Korea went into South Korea. I ended up in the 13th Ranger Company, part of the 43rd Division, that was sent to Germany,Ž the 87-year-old former soldier explained. He is now a Warm Mineral Springs resident. Eventually we came home and got discharged and that was that. I was sitting in a bar having a beer with some friends. We began talking about the good times we had had in the service,Ž Fanning said. I decided to go down and re-enlist in Special Forces with the Green Berets. I became a member of an A-Team sent to Laos on temporary duty. While I was there a chopper came in and this guy got off. His name was Robin Moore who wrote the book, The Green Berets. He was out there researching another book. We took him on an operation with us. I was a buck sergeant in the 7th Special Forces Group Airborne. We were part of Operation White Star, in Laos,Ž he explained. Our particular mission was to help train the Liaison Army. That was the “rst time I came under enemy “re. Our position in Laos was close to a North Vietnamese Regular unit. They woke me up in the middle of the day with their cannon “re. One of their shells exploded close to where I was sleeping,Ž he said. Before we could accomplish much over there, the government pulled us out after several months and sent us back to Fort Bragg in the States. I transferred to the 1st Special Forces Unit based in Okinawa. I made a couple of temporary duty trips to Vietnam with them. On one of those trips I helped train Montagnards (Degars „ an indigenous people) who were living in Ba Don, a little town in South Vietnam. These people were called Mung Lao and were Laotians. Since I could speak a little Laotian from my earlier trip to Vietnam, I became like a big brother to them. I loved them.Ž The French called the Degars Montagnards „ meaning people of the mountainŽ „ during their years occupying Vietnam. This part of South Vietnam was a heavily forested area without many roads. There were lots of forest trails to travel on. The Montagnards used elephants as pack animals. Each elephant could carry about 500 pounds in a pouch on its back. If you put too much cargo on an elephant he would shake it off,Ž Fanning explained. The elephants and their native handlers were lifetime partners. They took care of them and treated them well. On one patrol into the jungle, I was walking in front of an elephant in the bush. You could hardly hear it because he stepped so quietly,Ž he said. Because I wasnt walking fast enough the elephant gave me a push with his trunk. The boy who was his handler who was riding on his neck laughed. Our job was to train these Montagnard how to use American-made military equipment „ M-1 ri”es, 60 mm mortars, and bazookas. Sometimes they went out with us on an operation. At that point they were mostly “ghting the Vietcong, the guerrillas. They didnt have too many Vietnamese Regulars yet, but they were on their way to South Vietnam. After six months I returned to Okinawa with my unit. Then I was sent to the Delta way down in South Vietnam. It must have been around 1964 by this time. Our mission was to train a Vietnamese Army unit how to protect the countrys border, along the Mekong Delta between South Vietnam and Cambodia. While I was there in the Delta, Raymond Burr, the actor, came visiting. One of our guys had a pet snake he put up in our barrack rafters to have a little fun with the actor. By the way, Mr. Burr, if you look up youll see my pet snake over your head. Burr looked up, saw the snake and didnt say a word. We had no enemy contact while I was there, and I was getting disgusted with the Special Forces unit. I thought the Special Forces would be like the Of“ce of Strategic Services, the OSS, that went behind enemy lines in World War II and created a guerrilla force that attacked the enemy. I didnt like the way Washington was “ghting the war in Vietnam. When my time was up a few months later I got out of the Army. I spent a few months back in the U.S., but I couldnt “nd a decent job so I re-upped in the Army again. I was assigned to a unit in Germany. For a single guy, Germany wasnt the place. There was too much booze. I was not doing well. I volunteered to go back to Vietnam. I was sent to the 1st Air Cavalry Division based in the biggest heliport in the world at Ah Khe. I was assigned to the 1st Brigade as the S-5. It was my job to win the hearts and minds of the locals. That was a lovely assignment. I loved it. The major in charge of our group was also in charge of the of“cers club. He found out I had been a bartender earlier in life and when the working bartender was reassigned I became his replacement,Ž Fanning said. It was only supposed to be a temporary job, but when I asked about reassignment I was told, The colonel likes your martinis. And by the way, the next stripe that comes in is going to you. There were guys out there in the bushes getting shot at, and they were going to give me the stripe for being a bartender. I didnt like that,Ž he said. I talked them into giving me travel time to go to Okinawa for 10 days to buy bar stools. I returned 28 days later and they court-martialed me. They took my stripes and sent me back to a line company in Vietnam as a corporal. I was like a cartoon from Joel Chandler Harris, Please Brother Bear, dont throw me into the briar patch.Ž That was exactly where I wanted to be „ in Vietnam on the front line again. I was sent to Charlie Company, 1st of the 12th Cav. We had the usual “eld operations and some enemy contact. Nothing too serious. Then the division commander put me in a special training team again. We were training the regional forces in Vietnam „ like our National Guard. We were working out of Qui Nhon.Ž It was there he was introduced to Charlton Heston. The actor was making the rounds in Vietnam. There was a B-Team of Special Forces next to our compound. I was often over there drinking beer with them,Ž he said. I was sitting at the bar having a beer when this lieutenant colonel in a nurses uniform sits beside me. I looked at her and realized it was the comedian and actress Martha Raye. Call me Maggie honey, she told me. I had a big conversation with her at the bar. She was a sweetheart.Ž Raye had been an Army nurse in World War II. I went to the sergeant-major and told him I was looking for a cushy assignment. I became the sergeant at the 3rd Field Hospital in Saigon that checked in patients and reported their whereabouts back to their company in the “eld. That was about as far away from war as you could get over there. One day Im sitting there waiting for more casualties to arrive at the hospital and an of“cer came up and asked me to escort a visitor around the hospital to visit the wounded troops. It was Gypsy Rose Lee, the burlesque queen from back in the States. She was in her 60s at the time but she was still a beautiful woman. I “nally had enough working at the Saigon hospital. Id heard about an operation the CIA was running. I went to the CIAs of“ce in Saigon and got a job working for a Provincial Recon Unit at Bal Loc. When I arrived there was a 36-man team we split in two. I took 18 of these men into the jungle with me. We set up in a place where we thought we could capture the North Vietnamese tax collector making his rounds. The VC would hold a gun to a farmers head and say: Give me all your money, were collecting taxes! What we ambushed were two companies of North Vietnamese Regulars. Since there was only 18 of us we got the hell out of there in a hurry. Thats where I got my Purple Heart. I was the only one in our group that got wounded. I got this piece of frag in my leg.Ž For his efforts taking on the North Vietnamese Regulars, he received the Silver Star. About this time Gen. Creighton Abrams sent this bird colonel around to inspect all the Provincial Recognizance Units. I talked to the colonel and told him I had four years in country with various units and was a valuable asset. The colonel told me, Sergeant its time for you to go back to the States. Thats an order! I was sent back to B-Company, 75h Rangers at Fort Carson, Colo. I cut a deal with the company commander. If I would train some of the people how to send Morse Code he would sign a 1049 order sending me back to Vietnam. In 1970, I went back there to the 101st Airborne. While I was there my mother passed away. I came home on emergency leave for her funeral. About that time President Nixon approved an order that nobody was going back to Vietnam. When it came time for me to reenlist in 1972, I decided to call it quits after 17 years in the Army. There was nothing interesting to do because the war was almost over. People couldnt understand why I would get out three years short of my 20-year retirement date.

A lot goes into it, and I do have that behind me and I do understand the process and how to prepare for meetings now.Ž As she looks toward campaigning, Luke also looks toward the future of the city. The end of my term the city is going to be different,Ž she said. It will look different and weve got to be careful how we plan.

The additional revenue could then go toward six Tier II projects, deemed important but not at the level of toppriority projects, he said. One such project would be a pool at North Charlotte Regional Park. The $4.44 million aquatic center, with a 50-meterby-25-yard competitive pool and diving facilities, is considered a vital Mid-County amenity. Also, County Commissioner Bill Truex, a contractor by trade, said there would be a possible savings in constructing the pool at the same time as adding a Tier I recreation center at the site. Another Tier II project that may take precedence is the relatively small expense of upgrading generator capacity at the Charlotte County Justice Center, at a cost of $350,000. I look at this as a need to focus on sooner, rather than later,Ž Truex said. A huge savings would will be realized with the Piper Road project, which is coming in $6 million under its $22.4 budget. And, an upgraded countywide public safety digital radio system will cost $1 million less than the $10 million projected expense. However, not all sales tax projects are coming in within budget, although most of the cost overruns will be paid from sources other than sales tax money. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce District 1 headquarters, which opened last May, was budgeted at $3.8 million budget, but ended up costing $4.3 million. The initial phase of overhauling McGuire Park, begun in August and set to be “nished by the end of summer, was supposed to cost $1.1 million, but has risen to $2 million, largely due to an enhanced splash pad. It should also be noted that of“cials expect the larger splash pad to have a $1,000 monthly water bill once in operation. Another sales tax project that expanded its scope, and consequently its cost, is the budgeted $9.9 million widening of Olean Boulevard, from U.S. 41 to Easy Street. An additional $3.4 million will come from gas tax revenue, plus another $2 million for utilities improvements. Still another over-budget sales tax project is the new South County library at 401 Shreve St., in Punta Gorda. The initial $6.9 million budget wasnt enough to produce a building that Punta Gorda of“cials were happy with, so an additional $600,000 was pumped into the project, with the city and county splitting the extra cost. In addition, the renovation of existing recreation centers at South County Regional Park, Harold Avenue and Tringali, originally set at $3.54 million, will require another $580,000 of sales tax money, Mortimer said. And the new recreation center at North Charlotte Regional Park, budgeted at $8.1 million, is likely to cost more. There may be a need for a budget adjustment on that,Ž he added.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comTAXFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDEDThe Charlotte County Sheris Oce District 1 headquarters opened last May at 11501 Willmington Blvd., Englewood.

The higher ranking for the interchange did not come without questions, however. Can you tell me why it suddenly popped up to number four on the list,Ž Commission Chairwoman Nancy Detert asked Paula Wiggins, a county transportation manager. The answer, Wiggins replied, lay in the current and future growth in that area, speci“cally the new housing underway in Palmer Ranch and development plans underway for the former Hi-Hat Ranch. She added, too, that the interchange is the only one between Clark Road and Laurel Road that does not have a southbound entrance. Leigh Holt, the planning manager for the Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization, told Detert and the other commissioners that a project to replace the interchange was years and years away.Ž The goal she added, was to move it up on the unfunded needs list so it would be more in line to receive funding in future years. Another item on the priority list that drew criticism from Commissioner Charles Hines was a barrier island traf“c study. The $1.1 million study, ranked at eighth on the list of transportation priorities would look at traf“c congestion on Manasota, Casey and Siesta Keys. Because of the county boundaries, the study would not extend into the Charlotte County portion of Manasota Key, which is more developed. According to Wiggins, the study would suggest ways to ease congestion, like a similar study for the northern barrier islands in M anatee County had done. She suggested, too, that it could look at the use of electronic messaging boards that could alert drivers, for example, that beach parking lots were full, an issue particularly at the popular Siesta Key Beach, which often “lls rapidly. I just dont know what were going to learn that you and our staff dont already know,Ž Hines said to Wiggins. Despite his criticism, Hines joined Detert and Commissioners Mike Moran and Paul Caragiulo in approving the priorities list. Commissioner Alan Maio was absent from this portion of the meeting due to his attendance at a Southwest Florida Water Management District board meeting. While commissioners have approved the priority list, it must still be approved by the full MPO board before being sent to the Florida Department of Transportation for its review.

The Sun /Monday, March 5, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA „ The city is doing away with its current trash carts „ a greenstone cart with yellow lid „ and updating its look. After debating the color of trash cans for over 10 minutes, the city of Punta Gorda selected a new color scheme for its roll-out carts, opting for an upgrade that will cost $10,000 more. The City Council mulled the matter recently, reviewing 18 color alternatives for a new cart, which is then complimented by “ve lid choices and two options for the citys logo. Ultimately, though, the council picked a sandstone cart with brown lid and black logo after 13 minutes of discussion. Sandstone is considered a color upgrade, costing $10,000 extra, or $1 per cart. Total cost of the trash cart contract is $402,918. Council awarded the purchase order to vendor, Toter Inc., before picking its favorite color palette. District 5 Councilwoman Nancy Prafke sent out a newsletter, asking residents which colors they prefer. Noting a large response, Prafke said, People are looking for something natural that would blend in.Ž Like sandstone, granite “nishes help hide scuffs and scratches. Mayor Rachel Keesling said, Longevity-wise and color-wise, we talked about spillage ... the sandstone is ideal.Ž Standard colors „ including blue, black, and green „ for cart bodies were not popular choices among council members. Was the person that did this color blind? This is ridiculous. I cant imagine we would put any of these colors in our city,Ž District 4 Councilwoman Lynne Matthews said. Keep in mind, well be looking at hundreds of these twice-a-week, every week, for the rest of our lives,Ž she added. There is no way I want one of those green or blue carts in my yard. Theyre horrible colors.Ž Rollout of the new carts will start in mid-April with completion slated for April 30. The city is working with a vendor to pickup and recycle old metal and plastic carts. However, for those planning on keeping trash carts, the units must be equipped with a metal bar to accommodate the citys semi-automated refuse collection trucks. The city is still taking orders for carts, including 32 gallon (standard), 48 gallon and 96 gallon sizes.

THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE, OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS MAY VARY. Japan's Top Joint Pain Pill for 75 Years is Now Available in the USChris Peterson, Special Health InvestigatorDoctors and patients are rejoicing after hearing the news that Japans top pain reliever is now available in the US. This pill has been used safely in Japan for over 75 years, and the active ingredient can soothe painful in” ammation and stiff joints that so many older Americans are suffering from today. It also works to rebuild your cartilage and joint material that naturally degrades over time. The pills cost signi“ cantly less than other, less-effective drugs as well, which is critical in this era of skyrocketing health care costs. Some patients reported their pain management costs have been reduced by 87%. The specially formulated pill is now being offered on a trial basis in the United States under the brand name Pro” exoral’.Eases Pain In MinutesPatients are ecstatic for this incredible joint painreliever because it can ease pain in as little as 15 minutes and steadily improves mobility and relieves stiffness over the “ rst 24 hours. The active ingredient comes from a natural source that has been proven to reduce painful in” ammation. There have been no major side effects in the history of this ingredient. I felt relief almost immediately in my knees and it just got better from there. I can “ nally use my hands again. I never go a day without it now. I sleep a lot better too since I dont wake up stiff and sore in the middle of the night. I recommend Pro” exoral’ to all my friends now,Ž says Don Miller of Ohio.Reverses Joint DestructionPro” exoral’ contains an incredible compound with the p roven ability to rebuild damaged cartilage and soothe painful in” ammation in joints and muscles. This compound is not a drug and has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. Until now, this amazing ingredient has not been available in the US. Patient studies have reported no adverse side effects. Many NSAIDS and over the counter pain relievers can damage the stomach lining and kidn eys. Many patients report that they now enjoy their work and hobbies again thanks to Pro” exoral’. My hands were so painful. I thought I would just have to live with the pain. Nothing else helped, I tried everything. And I was really worried about getting addicted to painkillers. Pro” exoral’ is the “ rst thing that has worked in a long long time. And it started working within an hour. Now I work in my garden again and knit clothes for my granddaughter,Ž Marjorie Taylor of Texas reports. Sales for Pro” exoral’ have skyrocketed in the last few weeks and the company can barely keep up with orders. Studies Show Incredible Improvement in Joint HealthLandmark studies have proven the effectiveness of this life-changing ingredient in recent years. In one study, 15 patients suffering from knee pain were given this compound, and 15 were given a placebo for 8 weeks. All patients receiving this powerful compound reported decreased knee pain, better ” exibility, and every single one was able to increase their walking distance. In another trial, 66 people suffering from stiffness and pain were either given a popular prescription drug or this natural ingredient. Then detailed measurements were taken for pain, degree of mobility and the ability to do common household chores. This healing compound outperformed the popular prescription drug by 47% and users experienced no adverse side effects. The prescription drug takers often reported upset stomach and discomfort using the bathroom. Plus the study showed that the people that took this compound experienced no decline of cartilage during the trial, which means that this shocking ingredient was actually stopping the aging process in their joints. And patients even had less pain and stiffness a full month after they stopped taking the active ingredient in Pro” exoral’. The effects of the compound are so powerful they keep working even when youre not taking it. It comes as no surprise that the makers of Pro” exoral’ can barely keep it on shelves.How This Breakthrough Compound WorksResearchers have recently discovered that as we age, our body pr oduces enzymes that naturally increase in” ammation and eat away at cartilage and joint material. This causes chronic pain as the joint slowly degrades and becomes in” amed. The compound that can reverse this process is commonly known as BSE. This special compound acts like a “ re hose for burning in” ammation in the body, which causes most of the pain you feel. It works by inhibiting the enzymes that cause in” ammation,  says Dr. Ralph La Guardia, a physician in Connecticut who specializes in geriatric care and pain management. It also works by replacing the joint material that naturally degrades with age with new, healthy material that allows your joints to essentially rewind the age clock.Ž Dr. La Guardia has begun recommending Pro” exoral’ to his patients and has seen the incredible results time and time again.How To Get Pro” exoral’ At A Discounted PriceThis is the of“ cial release of Pro” exoral’ in Florida. So the company is offering a special discount supply to any person who calls within the next 48 hours. A regional order hotline has been set up for local readers to call.

Keep church, state separate Writer has every right to complainEditor: What should we do? Ban guns, bump stocks. Banning guns will not work, bump stocks, yes. Raise the age to 25 years for automatic and semi-automatic guns. Stricter background checks like for those with psychological disorders and those on drugs or convicted of drugs. These drugs cause violent acts when taken long enough. Another thing is to educate our students on the power of social media. Those planning these acts tell someone “rst so a person who sees this its their responsibility to turn in these people. You could save several lives. Some states have an app for this. I believe the schools should have a student info meeting once a month on how to deal when a shooter enters a school. A person or persons in a school should be a certi“ed concealed weapons carrier. Doesnt have to be a teacher. Each school should have a committee of teachers and parents to look into keeping schools safe. Its time to think out of the box to make our schools safer. Lets work together for the ultimate good of our children. Winston W. Harper Punta GordaEditor: Lebron James is the best basketball player in the world. He has proven himself to be a great leader and a great American example of what hard work and skill can accomplish in America. His background and speaking out for good and against tyrants is a sensational model for children and adults. Laura Ingraham is a lazy pencil-pusher. She is good at hate but useless at basketball. So why is she even marginally famous? Laura Ingraham has an opinion show on Fox News, the propaganda arm of the Republican Party. Propaganda is misinformation that is meant to deceive people who are not intellectually strong enough to recognize and resist it. Ingraham defends tyrants and thwarts the truth with alternative facts from Fox and Russian sources to induce witless Americans to support Donald Trump. She is proud of the Republican election victory for the bene“t of Fox and Russia, in spite of the damage to America and the Editor: This is in response to a Viewpoint letter on Feb. 27 concerning the Marine Detachment planning to disband. This is not true. We as a detachment are running at full strength. We just recently changed the name of our detachment to honor one of our own fallen heroes. Peter J. Shanks Detachment #756 Charlotte County Florida is our new name and we meet every second Saturday of every month at 11 a.m. at the American Legion on Harbor Boulevard in Port Charlotte.

Im sure the Sunseeker Resort will be amazing in every way, a lovely addition for the handful of Charlotte County residents who could actually afford to purchase one of their condos that are anticipated to be priced between $650,000 to over $1 million. If you look at the median income for Charlotte County, you will soon recognize that these units are not being built for Charlotte County residents. These are being built for the wealthy and the snowbirds, period. Charlotte County is salivating in anticipation of collecting all the new taxes instead of actually thinking about what the people want. Lucienne Pears, economic Editor: Let me begin by saying that I am a Christian and I truly believe in my God. I also believe in the separation of church and state. When I saw the heading on an article in the Sun on Feb. 18, I could feel my blood pressure rising. Headline: Legislature wants more God in schools. Really? There are still people who get upset at the sight of a Nativity scene or Menorah. And wasnt it tried some years ago to display the Ten Commandments in front of several courthouses? They didnt last very long. The government has already inserted one nation under GodŽ into our Pledge of Allegiance. That is not how it was written by our forefathers. I cannot believe the atheists in this country or the ACLU have not been more vocal on this subject. It doesnt matter what anyone believes or doesnt believe in. We are all citizens and we have rights. All of us. Not just the Deists. And speaking of rights, one more thought. Dont all parents have the right and expectation that when they drop their children off at school or send them off on the bus that they wont be coming home in a body bag?Loretta Stelmack Port CharlotteEditor: In reference to the letter, PG is changing for the better,Ž well I dont know how long Harvey Goldberg has been living here to decide that, but I have lived here 48 years and visited as a child. My grandmother had the “rst Port Charlotte Post Of“ce in back of the Firestone store. Punta Gorda has always survived and ”ourished while remaining a small town. The Publix center downtown had the only movie theater for many years, except the Charlotte Harbor drive-in. The old auditorium was more people-friendly, having monthly a ”ea market inside and out, always a big success. Plus roller skating for the kids while having the same exhibitions and concerts. The big travesty now is Gilchrist Park „ for years it has been for the peopleŽ „ free ice-cream for kids on Halloween, arts and crafts festivals, a quiet place to have morning coffee and read the paper, the car show during the block party, family picnics. The best part has always been the Tuesday and Thursday night music: From oldies rock n roll, to country, to bluegrass and dulcimers. From medium crowds in the summer to huge in the winter with everyone singing, dancing, really having a good time, all super-friendly people from all walks of life with plenty of free parking. Now, its quite different, not even a bathroom. Phil Wilson has been very active in our community for many years and always in the park on music nights. He has every right to complain. Lynda Taylor North PortMove ahead with CRA plans in EnglewoodOUR POSITION: A thoughtful blueprint for redevelopment has been in place for a decade. Stick to the plan.Slight revisions to land use regulations governing growth of the Englewood Community Redevelopment Area took an unexpected stumble recently at a Sarasota County Planning Commission meeting. Unexpected? On second thought, perhaps not. The delay was caused when roughly a dozen people objected to Comprehensive Plan changes proposed by the CRA. Those changes would have allowed more density „ but not greater overall dimensions „ for new construction in the commercial district along West Dearborn Street. It also would have extended similar land use up another road that intersects with Dearborn „ South McCall Road. South McCall already has a mix of businesses and homes. This would have allowed a different sort of mix on this street, similar to that permitted along Dearborn. All in all, the land use changes would encourage greater and smarter development, which was and is exactly the point of the redevelopment district in the “rst place. But more development will bring more people. And more traf“c. And change. And the threat of change always seems to draw out naysayers „ especially in Sarasota Countys Olde Englewood area, which has long inspired strong passions. Resistance to change persists, even though the changes of the past “ve years have been embraced by most as positive „ exciting even. More visitors and more traf“c, yes. But, over the past 10 years, that hasnt been positive? At this stage in the long redevelopment process, we “nd the reaction befuddling. Sarasota County created the Englewood CRA in 1999. The intention was to transform a once-thriving town center that had fallen on hard times. In legal parlance, the area was considered blighted.Ž A CRA allowed property taxes (above a level set in the “rst year) to be injected directly into the designated CRA district for improvements that would spur further redevelopment. Decisions are guided by a local advisory board and subject to “nal approval of the County Commission. In nearly two decades, the Englewood CRA has improved the Dearborn streetscape, and created parks and parking lots, among other things. It created an Arts District with special zoning. It installed a multi-million-dollar, greenŽ stormwater collection system that would allow bigger, more-intense property development along the Dearborn core. The county/CRA also steered growth according a major redevelopment plan created by consultants and vetted through community workshops and hearings. The plan was adopted by Sarasota County and woven into land use regulations. That plan was drafted in 2007 „ 11 years ago. It encourages mixed-use development along Dearborn up to 35 feet tall. New buildings could have businesses on the “rst ”oor, apartments or condos on the second or third. That type of development hasnt happened yet, but it could. And, in our view, it should. It would be healthy, positive change. The purpose of the CRA was to direct that change in a careful, controlled manner consistent with direction steered by the public years ago. Not all agreed; most did. Now, the CRA needs to tweak to the plan to make it more effective and expand it a sensible way to the nearby area. This community development plan is working. Stick with it. The change should be welcomed. development director, said, The goal is to create a sense of place in Charlotte Harbor, attracting young families and a much-desired workforce to grow the local economy.Ž So, my question to Ms. Pears is, Where are these young families who are supposed to be part of this workforce going to live?Ž Do you think their wages will allow them to buy these new condos? Everyone talks about the blightŽ that was on Bayshore Road, how about the blight that is U.S. 41 from Melbourne to Veterans? Port Charlotte is an armpit, period. If Charlotte County wants to attract all these people with money, I suggest you concentrate on beauti“cation of our main corridor and build affordable housing for all these young workers you will need.Pamela Gross Punta GordaAmerican people. Of course, Fox-Russian propaganda was the cause of Trump being foisted upon us. That is why Trump and the Republicans refuse to do anything to protect our next election. Trump did not and cannot win without dastardly assistance of Fox and Russian propaganda (Pizza Gate, Lock up innocent Hillary, Clinton foundation verses Trump foundation, defending Trumps abuse of women and pathological lying, etc.) to deceive the gullible in the American electorate.Wayne R.

Forty years of living in Port Charlotte. My husband, Joe, a Pearl Harbor survivor and veteran of World War II, myself and our two girls, Maurya and Colleen, loaded up a U-haul and headed to our new home on Lakemount Avenue. The “rst thing Joe did was hang the ”ag from his ship at Pearl Harbor „ The USS Dobbin, an auxiliary destroyer Editor: It seems that the public is slowly becoming aware of the scheme cooked up between the Sunseeker Resort developers and the county commissioners to nab a good chunk of Live Oak Park for a parking garage. A true case, it looks like, for taking paradise and putting up a parking lotŽ as the song says. It would be an appropriate time before the bulldozers tackle the trees, probably in the dead of night, to start a serious public debate about what the public feels about this misguided decision. There have been a few well thought-out letters to the editor lately which have rung an alarm bell, but much more public outrage needs to be felt by the commissioners before it is too late to modify the site design and change direction. The community in times past has turned out when unpopular ideas have been proposed as was seen when the idea of a restaurant in Gilchrist Park was soundly defeated by public opinion. Maybe the picture of a bunch of us senior citizens chaining ourselves to the endangered trees Editor: Ive noticed a lot of people dont understand how to use the four-way stop sign. This can cause accidents. The person who approaches his or her stop sign “rst has the right of way. Trying to beat it through, or conversely, wave someone through causes the ”ow to be disrupted and is actually unsafe. Mostly, I see people waving others on.

With such a low opinion of POTUS, Im guessing the writer voted for HRC and Obama. What did Obama do in eight years? Denigrated police, caused a major setback in race relationship, turned the IRS into a political weapon against opposition, knew Russia was attempting to interfere in our 2016 election and did nothing, lied about being able to keep VIEWPOINTThere are columns and there are columns. This one comes from as deeply as you can go into Roy E. Ault. John Peter Zenger was a German immigrant who was a printer for The New York Weekly Journal.Ž In the 1730s, Zenger printed a piece harshly criticizing the corrupt royal governor, William S. Cosby. Cosby was accused of staging rigged elections and other assorted crimes and basically labeled an idiot. In 1733, when Zenger refused to name the authors, he was hauled into court on the charge of libel. Libel back then had a different meaning. At that time anyone who published information that was opposed to the government could be charged with libel. The truth or falsity of the criticism did not matter. Zenger was hauled into court. The jury consisted entirely of men who were on Cosbys payroll. Zenger was found guilty. Meanwhile, Zengers wife, Anna, kept the presses rolling. Her reports resulted in a new trial, and the jury was made up of Zengers peers. Andrew Hamilton, Zengers new attorney, admitted Zenger printed the story but demanded that the charges be proven false. Hamilton said, It is not the cause of one poor printer but the cause of liberty.Ž The jury returned in less than 10 minutes with a verdict of not guilty.Ž Thus was born the concept of a free press. On Aug. 2, 1964, a “asco occurred in the Gulf of Tonkin, which is off the coast of Vietnam. President Lyndon Johnson used it to spur Congress to pass the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution that eventually led to the morass we refer to as the war In Vietnam. At this stage, it is important to know that the presidents who preceded Johnson, including Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy, were all active in Vietnam politics „ mostly unknown to us regular civilians. Their degree of complicity is too long to be enumerated in this column. Just believe it. Bob McNamara was Lyndon Johnsons secretary of state. It did not take him long to realize we could not win the war in Vietnam and on June 17, 1967, he created the Vietnam Study Task Force.Ž The purpose was to write an encyclopedic account of the Vietnam War and its goal was to prevent policy errors in future administrations. Neither Johnson nor Secretary of State Dean Rusk knew of the study. The study, however, was completed, and one of the people who worked on it was David Ellsberg. Ellsberg became opposed to the war and copied the study. He offered it to members of Republican President Nixon administration, including National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger. None were interested, though the study clearly showed that Lyndon Johnson had systematically lied, not only to the public but also to Congress.Ž In February 1971, Ellsworth discussed the study with New York Times reporter Neil Sheehan and gave 43 volumes to him in March. The New York Times began publishing excerpts on June 13, 1971. After the third installment, Attorney General John Mitchell obtained a federal court injunction ordering the Times to stop publication. The Times appealed the injunction, and on June 16 the Washington Post started publishing the study. This time, Assistant Attorney General William Rehnquist asked the Post to stop. When the Post refused the government “led for an injunction. Eventually, the case made its way to the Supreme Court where by a 6-3 vote the court voted in favor of the newspapers. I bring all this to your attention because the movie The PostŽ is now playing in local theaters. I went to see it for the content, not for the actors or the story, although it is a good movie. It is about the Washington Post and their decision to publish the Pentagon Papers despite the consequences. It was good enough that as an ex-government teacher I would want my students to see it. This all leads to the fact that we have someone who resides in our White House who said on Feb. 17, 2017, that the media is the enemy of the American people.Ž Oh, no, sir, it is not! You are 180 degrees from the truth. The press is the savior of our republic. We should get down on our knees and thank God for a free press. When the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Times and the Post, Justice Harry Blackmun wrote, The people shall not be denied or abridged of their right to speak, to write or to publish their sentiments, and the freedom of the press, as one of the great bulwarks of liberty, shall be inviolable.Ž Amen! Roy Ault is a regular columnist for the Englewood Sun.The beginning, current state of press freedom Roy Ault This year is an exciting one for the Punta Gorda Airport. In fact, the airport will be celebrating its 75th year in existence since the Army Air Corps activated the Punta Gorda Army Air“eld in 1943 to train combat pilots for overseas duty in World War II. The airports operations have grown into a catalyst where business, aviation and tourism is fostered „ generating more than $350 million in economic impacts for our southwest Florida communities. We are fortunate to have Allegiant as our partner providing nonstop service to over 40 cities. However, increased passenger traf“c also means the ticketing counters and security screening stations will be very busy on mornings when “ve to seven ”ights leave between 6:30 and 8 a.m. Here are a few suggestions to make your ”ight out of Punta Gorda, or any airport, less stressful. 1. Enroll in TSA PreCheck. For TSA Pre travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, liquids of 3.4 ounces or less, laptops, light outerwear or belts. Since Charlotte County does not have a permanent enrollment location, were pleased to host a mobile enrollment center at the Punta Gorda Airport in the short-term parking lot across from the Bailey Terminal March 5-March 15 from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. (Closed Saturday and Sunday), and on March 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. Make your enrollment appointment online at www. identogo.com/rv. 2. Be ready for screening. If you do not have TSA Pre, travelers are now required to take out all electronics larger than a cellphone in bins for X-ray screening when going through the security checkpoint. Travelers without TSA Pre should continue to remove their one-quart bag containing liquids, gels and aerosols in quantities of less than 3.4 ounces. 3. Arrive early. Since Punta Gorda is an originating airport for Allegiant, its especially important baggage is checked early so the following ”ights can stay on schedule throughout the day. If you have an early morning ”ight please arrive two hours ahead of your ”ight. 4. Check in with Allegiant. Passengers are required to check in to get their boarding passes starting 24 hours before and up to 45 minutes prior to scheduled ”ight departure. Use www. AllegiantAir.com to check in and print your paper boarding passes to bring to the airport, or download the free Allegiant mobile app to get your paperless boarding passes. As the airport grows and evolves, we look forward to sharing quarterly columns from our leadership to keep you up to date on new opportunities and changes. Please visit www.”ypgd.com and follow the Punta Gorda Airport on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop with the latest news.

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 5, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in The News Wire section. When Nikolas Cruz turned 18, Broward County schools had to “gure out what to do with a troubled student who could legally refuse help. Their solution was to move Cruz, who was diagnosed with an emotional and behavioral disorder, from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland to a dropout prevention program where he took classes on computer with little interaction with teachers and mental health professionals. That decision has come under “re from some special-education experts who say the district shirked its responsibility to help a student who was still under its care. On Feb. 14, a year after Cruz was kicked out of Stoneman Douglas, he returned to the school and killed 17 people. They cant just wash their hands. They need to keep an eye on the situation,Ž said Mark Kamleiter, a St. Petersburg lawyer who represents families of special-needs children. If hes a danger to himself or others, they obviously have to do something.Ž That could mean giving him psychiatric help, offering regular access to counseling, allowing him to stay at Stoneman Douglas but trying to improve his behavior, or trying to persuade him to attend a school that was better suited for him. Still, some say the school districts ability to serve an adult student who is unwilling to receive help is limited. When youve got a kid thats 18 and the school district offers him services and the kid refuses, your hands are tied,Ž said Pete Wright, a Virginia lawyer who specializes in federal law related to special education. But Wright said the school district probably missed warnings when Cruz was much younger. Records show he was disciplined numerous times at Westglades Middle in Parkland for unruly and disruptive behavior, and neighbors described him bullying his brother, stealing and being abusive toward animals in elementary school. This didnt suddenly happen just because he reached a certain age,Ž Wright said. This type of thing shows itself for many, many years. The seeds are there, the signs are there in the second, third, fourth grade that hes depressed or having aggressive behavior. Unless the pattern is reversed, there can be horrible complications in the future.Ž For part of middle and high school, Cruz attended Cross Creek School in Pompano Beach, which specializes in students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. He was allowed to attend his neighborhood school, Stoneman Douglas, for two periods a day in August 2015 and then started attending Stoneman Douglas full time in January 2016. Once at Stoneman Douglas, he was disciplined for “ghting, using profanity toward school staff on three occasions and an assault, according to his discipline records. The school wanted him out. In November 2016, the school district recommended returning him to Cross Creek. Cruz didnt want to go back there and to avoid being placed there, he revoked his rights to special education services under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Act. You cant make someone do something when the law says they have the right to make that determination,Ž Superintendent Robert Runcie said. The district initially let him stay at Stoneman Douglas. It was dif“cult to expel him while he was receiving special education services, which include protections from the federal government. But once hes a general education student, they could treat him like any other student, but they had to wait for a new reason, experts said. That happened Jan. 19, 2017, when he was disciplined for assault. He was moved to the credit recovery program about three weeks later. District of“cials said they felt this was a better option than his being expelled from the district, and they said Cruz agreed to it. We found a place for him to be educated,Ž said Valerie Wanza, a district administrator. But experts say the district had a moral obligation to do more to help Cruz and protect the safety of students. What they did was move the problem to another setting,Ž said Ann Siegel, a lawyer and director for special education advocacy for Disability Rights Florida. I hear a lot, We offered help. He chose not take it. You know he needs services. You have to work at motivating him. You need to do everything you can to help him. Sending him to a course recovery program is not doing everything you can.ŽSchools could have done more for Nikolas Cruz, experts sayBy SCOTT TRAVISSUN SENTINELAlgae again threatening Floridas Indian River LagoonCOCOA BEACH, Fla. (AP) „ Scientists are seeing concerning levels of algae this year in Floridas Indian River Lagoon just two years after massive blooms led to the worst “sh kills on record. Florida Today reports that biologists are measuring similar algae levels in the lagoons waters that they saw before the devastating 2016 blooms. The lagoon on the states Atlantic Coast is one of the most biologically diverse waterways in the nation. When algae grow at high concentrations in the water they remove oxygen used by “sh, manatees and other creatures. Kayakers are reporting that the lagoons waters appear olive-brown in color, rather than clear as in years past. While no “sh kills have been reported yet, biologists are worried that the problem will worsen as temperatures rise.Florida homes evacuated due to sinkholesTHE VILLAGES, Fla. (AP) „ Six apparent sinkholes in Florida have made at least two homes unsafe to occupy. The Ocala StarBanner reports that the houses in The Villages were evacuated and condemned Feb. 15 after multiple holes emerged between them, cracking the walls of one. The Villages is not blaming sinkholes for the problem, instead classifying the incident as a catastrophic event.Ž Either way, Villages resident Ron Neumann and his wife are forced to live elsewhere with the help of their insurance company. They have not been told when they can return home. Other evacuees were put up in a hotel or were staying with friends while the holes were being “lled and investigated. On Friday, the houses were still roped off and a Villages employee was on site to prevent people from entering.Police: Naked Florida woman fatally shoots manDAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) „ Police say a naked woman fatally shot a man outside a Florida apartment building and then threatened neighbors. A Daytona Beach police report says 39-year-old Latasha Reaves was arrested Saturday on suspicion of murder after detectives found 47-year-old Patrick Robinsons body outside her apartment. Witnesses told police that Reaves was about 5 feet from Robinson when she shot him in the chest after an argument. Daytona Beach police Chief Craig Capri told the Daytona Beach News-Journal that Reaves threatened neighbors after the shooting and barricaded herself in the apartment. According to the report, Reaves refused to put on clothes for several hours after her arrest and that she was on some substance affect ing her actions and mood.Ž She eventually surrendered. It was not clear if Reaves had an attorney.After Parkland, even idle school threats get tough responseMINNEAPOLIS (AP) „ Fifteen students in one Florida school district face felony charges for making alleged threats since the Margery Stoneman Douglas High School massacre. Meanwhile, an autistic Orono High School student in Minnesota whose alleged threat led to a six-hour lockdown is in juvenile court. Hes received an outpouring of sympathy, and donations for his family. The Feb. 14 killings of 17 people in Parkland, Florida, ignited the usual copycat threats. Most prove unfounded, but they cause big disruptions. Authorities swift responses are underscoring how even idle threats will result in serious consequences. The Volusia County district in Florida isnt taking chances. The local sheriff has a zero-tolerance policy. He says students who make threats or their families will have to pay the costs of the investigations, which top $1,000 each.

LOCAL SPORTS WRESTLING: FHSAA ChampionshipsKISSIMMEE „ To say the Charlotte Tarpons made a big splash at the FHSAA Florida High School Wrestling State Championships is an understatement. Charlottes Donovan Cataldi and Lucas Willis “nished their 2017-18 seasons in grand style Saturday, capturing Class 2A state championships at the Silver Spurs Arena. Both won by major decision. Cataldi closed the year with a perfect 44-0 record in the 113-pound weight class, serving notice to Florida wrestlers that he could dominate for years to come. Only a year after placing “fth in the 106 class, Cataldi roared past Riverdales Lleyton Taylor 10-2 in the 113 title match. It was the fourth consecutive runaway win for Cataldi, who scored three pinfalls, including a 4-minute, 51-second semi“nal pin of Harmonys Owen Wetzel on Saturday morning, and then a major decision for the championship. To get a state championship is amazing,Ž said Cataldi, who is just a sophomore. Ive got two more years to go. Its a blessing.Ž Charlotte coach Evan Robinson said it was the schools “rst state wrestling title since 2011. Hes a heck of a kid. Hes only in his second year.Ž Cataldi slowly pulled away after a slow start. He led 2-0 at the end of the “rst period, and was tied 2-2 with 1 minute, 19 seconds left in the second before picking up four points to end the period with a 6-2 lead. Cataldi almost pinned Taylor twice in the third period before adding four more points to his total for a major decision. He needed to score early and take control of the match,Ž Robinson said. Willis got to wear his second gold medal after overwhelming LakelandLake Gibsons Nathan Lawwell 10-1 in the 132 class. Last year, he won the Class 1A 120-pound title while wrestling for Pembroke Pines-Somerset Academy. For Charlotte, Willis led 4-1 after two periods and then added six more points in the third to win going away. This (title) feels better,Ž said Willis, a freshman who “nished with a 44-3 record. My “nals match last year was bad. I was behind in points before I won. I dominated this time.Ž Charlottes third state “nalist „ Jose Valdez „ got pinned in the 182 “nal by Palmetto Ridges Colby Singletary. The two were tied 2-2 at the end of the second period, but then Valdez began the third on bottom and quickly got rolled into a pin. The sudden ending surprised Valdez, who “nished with a 47-2 record. In Class 1A, Lemon Bay freshman Bryce Taranto “nished state runner-up at 106, losing to Lake Highland Preps Danny Nini 3-1 in a hard-fought battle. Taranto spent most the night on bottom, struggling to gain advantage. Taranto trailed 3-0 late before picking up his lone point. You win some, you lose some,Ž Lemon Bay coach Mike Schyck. He really hasnt had a lot of wrestling under his belt. Hes only a freshman. He just couldnt get out from the bottom (Saturday).Ž Schyck, though, said he was pleased with Tarantos state runner-up “nish considering the ninth-grader transferred from Maryland last August and had to adjust to Florida wrestling. Hes done great,Ž Schyck said.Cataldi, Willis win state wrestling titlesBy JEFF GARDENOURSUN CORRESPONDENT FILE PHOTO Charlottes Lucas Willis captured Class 2A state championship in the 132-pound weight class at Saturdays FHSAA state nals in Kissimmee.SUN PHOTO BY KAT GODINA Charlottes Jose Valdez earned a third place nish in the 182-pound class in Saturdays FHSAA State nals in Kissimmee.PHOTO BY JEFF GARDENOURCharlottes Donovan Cataldi topped o a perfect 44-0 season with a Class 2A state championship on Saturday in Kissimmee.PHOTO BY JEFF GARDENOURLemon Bays Bryce Taranto lost a hard-fought 3-1 battle to Lake Highlands Danny Nini in the Class 1A 106-pound state title match on Saturday night in Kissimmee.

Page 14 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 5, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS In the CLASSIFIEDS! Find The Perfect Companion Charlotte County is one of the best places in the country to participate in year-round water sports. Local power boaters and sailors get out on the water, either as individuals, or in organized groups ranging from weekend cruising to regatta sailing. But there is one international group of sailors that has discovered Charlotte Harbor and adopted it as their winter home,Ž said Allan Leibel, Olympic sailing athlete for Canada in 1972 and 1976. Allan competed against both able-bodied and disabled sailors from Feb. 21-23, in the 2.4mR (meter Racing) Western Hemisphere Championship which was hosted by the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club (CHYC). A total of 14 sailors from Canada and the USA participated. The conditions on all three days were both favorable and challenging. When the boats left the CHYC marina for the “rst race on the morning of Feb. 21, they were greeted with strong winds from the east and some white caps on the water. It quickly became obvious that the 2.4mR boats classify as wet sail boats.Ž The sailors were frequently sprayed with water with the occasional wave swamping their boats. None of the competitors seemed concerned by the conditions, perhaps due to the fact that these boats cant sink. If a boat “lls with water that exceeds the capacity of the onboard bilge pump, Martin Holland, head of the CHYC sailing program, can come to the rescue with a commercial strength pump in a quick, agile rigid in”atable boat. He can pump the water out of the 2.4mR hull in no time and send the sailor on his or her way. Fortunately, none of the many safety precautions of the race organizers needed to be employed. The sailors plowed through the waves with a level of precision that was astonishing for onlookers. The signal boat is part of the starting line and its owner, John Schmuhl, was somewhat concerned, as several sailors shot by with less than an inch of water between the hulls. However, with time, he and the other racing committee members realized that the top sailors could perform razor sharp maneuvers again and again. A world sailing judge from Norway complimented the local volunteers on their excellent support and organization, which is required for such a high-level international event. The competition was “erce for all of the 11 races. The sailors quickly adapted to frequently changing wind strength and direction. As is typical for one design sailing races, the boats were close together at the start, the markers and the “nishing line. In race 10, we witnessed a tacking duel, which lasted the better part of the second windward leg. If you have seen the 1992 movie Wind,Ž you may remember the tacking duel initiated by team USA to get out of the dirty air from team Australia in the “nal race. While team USA managed to trick the Australian team with a double tack (in the movie), in our Charlotte Harbor version, Dee Smith wasnt able to get by Bruce Millar. Dee represented USA in the 2016 Paralympics and Bruce represented Canada in the same games in Rio de Janeiro. Sailing upwind in Charlotte Harbor, and using every possible maneuver, the two tacked about twenty times, all the way to the windward marker. At the end, Bruce Millar on Canada 39, broke Dees victory sweep from the previous nine races on his USA 7 boat. Whether aiming to win, or to improve their “nal positions, all of the sailors were very competitive. The most amazing and impressive aspect of these races, is that 8 of the 14 sailors are disabled. And that doesnt make any difference in this class of boats. The “rst three “nishers were all disabled followed by a former Olympic sailor in 4th place. These boats are the great Equalizer,Ž said Jackie Gay from Canada, who lost her left leg in an accident. She grew up in England, learned sailing early on and competed in European events in the English Channel and the North Sea. Peter Eagar, who has limited use of his hands due to a near-deadly disease that attacked his nervous system, sailed to an overall 3rd place in the series, several times coming very close to Dee Smith, the overall winner. Shan McAdoo was able to hold off a group of four other boats directly behind him in the run for the “nish line on Friday, although his illness kept him from starting on Thursday. I have to learn to live with my disability,Ž said Shan during the dinner at the CHYC. His MS forces him to use a walker on the dock, but he clearly demonstrated his sailing sportsmanship on the water. Also a gentleman, he could have “led a protest when another sailor forced him into the “nish line buoy within the protected 3 boat length zone, but he did not. All participants expressed their gratitude to the CHYC and the local residents for the wonderful welcome they received. Most of the sailors will return on March 29-31 for the CanAm “nals „ a 2.4mR race series speci“cally created by the CHYC organization for U.S. and Canadian sailors.World-class sailing in Charlotte HarborProvided by HERMANN SCHALLER Dee Smith wins a race.

OUR TOWN: TODAYS WOMAN MONDAY, MARCH 5, 2018 INSIDE: CLASSIFIEDSFor Janie Duke, the moment came when she was gazing at a bowl. It was tan, with tiny specs, and quite lovely. Shed been dabbling in glass art for a few years and was good at it, but this, this allowed her to see the future. I said. Thats what Im going to do for the rest of my life. Thats what Im going to specialize in,Ž she recalled. This from a woman who once sang with a band that traveled with Huey Lewis and the News. That was three years ago. Since then, she has studied at Bullseye Glass Studio and Museum in Portland, Ore., a mecca for glass artists. She has become a member of the National Glass Art society and is a patron member of the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda. She specializes in Pate de Verre, a process by which glass objects are cast by directing molten glass into a mold, where it solidi“es. Its an old technique, going back to the Egyptians, and she brings a fresh eye to it. Duke, who is married to Steve Duke, owner of Westchester Gold and Diamonds in Port Charlotte, works out of Glass Duchess Studio at 1080 Taylor Road in Punta Gorda. The bowls and platters she displays there are gorgeous works of art, delicate and soft to the eye. She will exhibit publicly for the “rst time at the VACs Peace River National Art Festival, a juried show at Laishley Park March 17-18. Dukes fascination with glass art actually began about “ve years ago, before she came face to face with her future. I was bored,Ž she recalled. My husband and I went on vacation in the state of Washington, and we visited a friend who used to live in Punta Gorda. She was doing glass. I saw some pieces at her house. She had some bowls, some platters. I said, Wow, these are really beautiful. Where do they come from? She said, I make them. I said, Cmon. So, she took me to the basement. Theres her kiln. Theres all this glass. And we made something.

LeanneELYCOLUMNISTI get a lot of emails from people who are, understandably, nutritionally confused. How do you decipher the claims of some of these things? The biggest question I get is regarding the butter/margarine debate. Check this one out: Dear Leanne, Im confused. You say I should use butter instead of margarine because margarine isnt real food. I heard you say it was a molecule away from being plastic on your radio show! But what about the saturated fat? And what about those margarines that dont have trans fatty acids and have Omega 3 fatty acids in them? They sound like theyre a better choice. „ Confused in Boise Dear Confused, I understand all the confusion. The food industry has been working overtime to rid itself of the trans fatty acid problem and give margarine a better name. Well, maybe some of that is so, but I say stick with foods that have been around since your great-great-grandmother and youll never go wrong. So that means eat BUTTER. Yes, its got saturated fat, but you dont eat much. I do this personally by using whipped butter and going easy. My cholesterol is just “ne and I know Im eating something my body will recognize as food. Too much of anything, even real, good food, is a problem!The Case for Real Butter (and other healthy fats)Here is something I wrote years ago explaining the problem. Pretend with me, for a minute, that I am a nutritional attorney defending a bottle of olive oil in a non-fat Court of Food. I am giving closing arguments to Judge Dinner Saver. Take a listen: Judge, let me just summarize the defendants right to be included in a healthy diet by giving the court these facts: Fact One: A developing child (before and after birth and throughout childhood) must have fat for normal brain development. Fact Two: Olive oil is a monounsaturated fat that reduces the bad cholesterol (LDL) while not affecting the good cholesterol (HDL). Fact Three: It satiates and helps with that fullŽ feeling…helping people not to over eat. Fact Four: It helps keep skin and hair healthier looking. Fact Five: It helps food taste better,Ž I said motioning dramatically to my client, the olive oil. The Judge was unmoved and eyed me like a piece of lettuce lodged in her tooth. Everything you say may be true, Ms. Dinner Diva, but isnt it true that oils are unstable?Ž That is true, Judge. But this is easily overcome by purchasing the right oil. For example, a cold-pressed or expeller-pressed oil most often found in health food stores, is always a good oil and is labeled as such. Never mind the instability problem „ if the oils are stored correctly in the refrigerator after opening, their fatty acids are preserved and no more rancid oils!Ž I said. But I could see the Judge wasnt willing to back down and asked the question I had been dreading. Well, margarine is made from oil and yet you told me earlier that it was hydrogenated and a bad choice! So you have the audacity to tell the food court to eat BUTTER!Ž she bellowed.The case for butter Name: Marjorie Benson Q: Occupation: A: Owner, Friendly Floors Q: How many years in Charlotte / Sarasota County: A: 35 Q: Hobbies: A: Weight training, reading, golf Q: What do you like best about your job: A: The people I work with including our clients! Q: Whats the funniest/weirdest thing you ever did on the job: A: I was listening to a great song on the JOY FM when I pulled up to work, and was singing along in my car. I continued to sing and dance into the showroom, thinking the few employees already there wouldnt mind. Of course there were other people in Friendly Floors already, and I was very embarrassed (I am no singer or dancer!) Q: What is the greatest lesson you have learned? A: Listen more than you speak. Q: What other interesting or unusual jobs have you had? A: As a server in high school, I had to wear the Bobs Big Boy costume (the one with the big head). It stunk terribly! Q: What is one important trait every leader should have? A: Integrity Q: Have you had a personal or business mentor? A : Yes, Sam Allman, who was with Mohawk University for many years, taught me so much. I would reread, and listen again to anything he was teaching on, from product knowledge to running a business smoothly. Q: How do you de“ne success? A. In business, happy, satis“ed clients and employees. In life, peace. Q: What is your most proud moment you have achieved in your profession? A: My proudest moment was when one of my employees posted on FB, bragging about her bosss kindness and Godly advice. I thought Is she talking about me?Ž I couldnt stop smiling and thanking God! Q: Something no one knows about you: A: I camped across the country for a summer in the 80s in a two man pup tent and a Datsun 280z!

Page 16 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 5, 2018 OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN 2 bought her a kiln. She parked it in the garage of their Port Charlotte home „ right next to his 1966 Corvette. Somehow, the kiln, the Vette and their marriage survived that union. Going on two years ago, Duke, a St. Louis native who has been in Charlotte County for 35 years, took up studio residence on Taylor Road. The new place offers something the garage did not: air conditioning. Theres not a Corvette in sight. She teaches at the studio „ new classes will begin in May „ and it has become her laboratory. She has a mad scientist side. Call it creativity. Call it craziness. But she likes to experiment. For example, she blew up a balloon, dipped it in wax and let it dry „ just to see if it would make an interesting mold for a bowl. The other day, it was sitting on workbench, waiting for the next step. The texture showed possibilities. The process of creating her art is long and painstaking. It takes “ve days „ and numerous steps „ to get something worthwhile out of the kiln. Her work is for sale. It runs in the $300-and-up range for a single piece. I love to work with my hands,Ž she said. I love to experiment with things. Sometimes they come out, and sometimes they dont. But its always exciting to open the kiln and see if theres something there or not.Ž Steve and Janie dont have children of their own, but they have quietly taken care of kids who needed them. She is known as Mama Duke for a reason. She also takes care of her 92-yearold father, and she and Steve are well-known in the community for their charitable work. Im happy,Ž Janie said. My business has really taken off. Im really glad that people have understood my art.

IF it is eaten in mass quantities, it will be problematic both for your thighs and your heart. Margarine, on the other hand, is hydrogenated oil with fake colors and ”avorings. This is a product “lled with trans-fatty acids which will actually RAISE LDL levels and reduce the HDL levels. Not only that, but the trans-fatty acids will age you faster than sitting in a tanning booth with your face slathered in bacon grease,Ž I said.

And Im like, I feel famous.Ž She added, Im used to being in front of crowds for speaking, at conferences and lecturing and that sort of thing, but this was so different. And I loved it because it was so different.Ž In high school, Finkbeiner participated in beauty pageants, but never modeling. She said that during her “eldwork, walking rainforests throughout Ecuador, someone mentioned that she should consider modeling. She thought it was worth trying. At the time, she was at Boston University, where she worked as a researcher after getting her doctorate in ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California at Irvine. She met with a modeling agency that began sending her to shows. She loves, she said, the excitement. The modeling is something thats out-ofthis-world fun,Ž she said. Its an adrenaline rush.Ž The day after her shows in London, she took a ”ight to OHare International Airport and was back at work Monday. In her workspace at the University of Chicagos Kronforst laboratory, where she is a postdoctoral research scholar in the Department of Ecology and Evolution, she showed visitors Heliconius butter”ies pinned in drawers, marveling at their beauty. She has received grants and honors from the Smithsonian and National Science Foundation, and her research aims to understand animal evolution across different geographic areas. At the university greenhouse, on the top of a nearby building, she explained the different types of live butter”ies. Black butter”ies ”uttered around inside their mesh homes, resting on branches. Finkbeiner pulled one out, carefully capturing it by gently folding its wings together, to show its patterns. Ever since she was a child growing up in Rockford, Ill., she loved watching the Discovery Channel, which introduced her to science. And she loved bugs. I was obsessed with them,Ž she said. I always had jars full of bugs with me.Ž But she was told, Bugs arent a girl thing.Ž She wants girls to know they can play in the dirt and study bugs and grow up to even work with them. After all, shes doing exactly what she wanted to as a little girl „ spend all day staring at beautiful butter”ies and studying them. They grow out of it because theyre told bugs arent for girls,Ž said Finkbeiner, who moved to Chicago from Boston in October. No one should tell you what you should or shouldnt do.Ž People dont have to be one thing or another, she said. She grew up dancing ballet, and she snowboards. She loves the Cubs. And she hopes to be an example of how scientists arent simply people who sit in a lab, and models arent simply people who look pretty. I really enjoy being a scientist, but a part of me likes to enter other worlds if I can,Ž she said. Sometimes though, her worlds collide. Arriving at Heathrow for Fashion Week, she grabbed a copy of BBC Focus Magazine that included an article shed written. Recently, she taped an interview for an upcoming PBS Nature episode Sex, Lies and Butter”iesŽ that will air in April. While in London examining a ”owing out“t for a show by designer Jolie, she was delighted to “nd the overthrow had a butter”y within its intricate beading. It was totally by chance,Ž she said.SCIENTISTFROM PAGE 1 TNS PHOTOSusan Finkbeiner is both a runway model and a scientist at the University of Chicago, where she is seen in her lab on Feb. 20.

The Sun /Monday, March 5, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 19 OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN 5 When my daughter was a baby I used to joke that shed sleep with her eyes open if it were humanly possible, so unwilling was she to miss even a moment of action. I would walk her and rock her, walk her and sing, walk her and whisper, and she would “ght with every cell in her body to stay awake „ keeping one eye open after the “rst eye surrendered to exhaustion, like some kind of baby Popeye. Shes 12 now, and her early reticence was a sign of things to come. Sleep is nothing more than an impediment to world domination. She packs her days down to the minute „ morning debate club followed by school followed by cheer practice followed by trampoline practice followed by prep for the upcoming math competition in Spring“eld followed by homework followed, reluctantly, by sleep. Wake, rinse, repeat. Im proud and worried. Proud because shes bright and engaged and fearless and determined to be great. Worried because I fear that some voice „ in her head, in the world „ tells her that shes not good enough unless shes good at everything. A 2015 survey commissioned by the University of California at Los Angeles, which included responses from 150,000 full-time students at more than 200 colleges and universities, found the highest levels of unhappiness ever recorded in female “rst-year college students. Twice as many young women than young men said they felt depressed frequently or occasionally,Ž and twice as many young women than young men said they were overwhelmed by all I have to do.Ž The survey is cited in educator Rachel Simmons new book, Enough as She Is: How to Help Girls Move Beyond Impossible Standards of Success to Live Healthy, Happy, and Ful“lling LivesŽ (Harper). I devoured the book, wincing, waiting for it to prove that Im setting my daughter up for a lifetime of anxiety as she struggles to keep up with an impossible set of standards and demands. Yes, this is the most promising moment for girls in history,Ž Simmons told me recently. At the same time, girls have more expectations and obligations than any time in history. Thats not an easy responsibility to bear.Ž Psychologists call it role overload,Ž Simmons writes, meaning too many roles for a single individual to play, and role con”ict,Ž meaning the obligations of the roles you play are at odds with one another. Both conditions are known to include high levels of stress,Ž Simmons writes. In the so-called age of girl power, we have failed to cut loose our most retrograde standards of female success and replace them with something more progressive. Instead weve shoveled more and more expectation onto the already robust pile of qualities we expect girls to possess.Ž Be a STEM star, but with perfect makeup. Be class president, but with plenty of time for your friends. Be an athlete, but not too muscle-y. Simmons book offers a road map for helping girls navigate the obligation-laden terrain with their wits and con“dence intact. The key, she argues, is to help girls know themselves well enough to pursue what makes them tick, not what they assume will please or impress others. Social media, not surprisingly, occupies a lot of the books real estate. Girls use social media every day to mobilize and inspire their peers to activism,Ž Simmons writes. When they feel alone and that no one understands them, the internet regularly offers what a hallway or classroom cant. What girls need from their parents is not a conversation about whats wrong with social media, but whats wrong with the way many of them use and value it.Ž But it shouldnt be the barometer of a girls selfworth. Instead, she writes, we should help the girl in our life use it to do the following: Say something about herself, rather than prove something about herself; connect with others, rather than compete with others; make statements about issues, rather than ask questions about what others think of her; amplify a cause thats bigger than herself. Shell have missteps; we all do. But when she makes a mistake „ on social media, in school, in a friendship „ teach her to go easy on herself. If you dont beat yourself up when you fail, failure becomes a lot less scary,Ž Simmons writes. Its easier to take intellectual risks and go where your curiosity takes you. The drive to learn rather than perform makes self-compassionate people more motivated, more resilient in the face of failure and more comfortable taking healthy chances. When self-compassionate people fail they are less likely to revert to feelings of shame and worthlessness.Ž We can model this by being compassionate with ourselves and sharing stories of times we stumbled. It can also help, Simmons writes, to ask your daughter how she would approach a close friend or relative whod made a mistake and try applying that same grace to herself. Help her lean on others when she needs help. Challenge the assumption that self-made success is somehow better or more worthy,Ž Simmons writes. Remind her that connections forged in vulnerability, in her personal life and at work, are often the most real and lasting.Ž And, maybe my favorite bit of advice of all, help her connect with her own values. She will grow stronger when she is rooted in who she is, how she feels and what she stands for, not who she is trying to be for anyone or anything else,Ž Simmons writes. Ask her about three values she wants to honor right now in her life. Friendship? Family? Honesty? Service? Talk together about how she can align herself with what she cares about.Ž Especially now, Simmons said. It can feel very much like, The world is happening to me, and all Im trying to do is keep up,Ž she told me. Being able to get young people thinking about what they stand for gives them agency and helps them make sure what theyre doing is what they feel passionate about, not just what some college will want from them.ŽTeaching girls they can be anything „ but they dont have to be everythingBy Heidi StevensCHICAGO TRIBUNE The Vatican, Versace and Vogue are joining forces to show off the Catholic in”uences in fashion. The Vaticans culture minister joined Donatella Versace and Vogues Anna Wintour to offer sneak peek of gorgeous Vatican liturgical vestments, jeweled miters and historic papal tiaras that will star in a spring exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic ImaginationŽ opens May 10 and represents the most extensive exhibit of the museums Costume Institute, of“cials said. It also represents the “rst time some of the Vaticans most precious treasures from the Sistine Chapel sacristy are being exhibited outside the Vatican. Along with the papal treasures, the Met show includes garments for more ordinary mortals by designers spanning Azzedine Alia to Vivienne Westwood, all set against the backdrop of the Mets collection of medieval and religious artwork. Some might consider fashion to be an un“tting or unseemly medium by which to engage with ideas about the sacred or the divine,Ž curator Andrew Bolton told a crowd of Roman fashionistas and journalists. But dress is central to any discussion about religion. It af“rms religious allegiances and, by extension, it asserts religious differences.Ž The exhibit, featuring some 40 Vatican vestments and accessories spanning 15 papacies, will be spread among various Met galleries as well as the Cloisters branch in upper Manhattan in what organizers called a planned pilgrimageŽ blending fashion, faith and art. With Ennio Morricones soundtrack for The MissionŽ playing in the background, visitors on Monday were able to glimpse a small sampling of the soon-to-be-shipped Vatican bling: The white silk cape embroidered with gold thread that once belonged to Pope Benedict XV, and the emerald, sapphire and diamond-studded miter, or pointed bishops hat, of Pope Leo XIII. They were put on display at the Palazzo Colonna, a former papal residence in downtown Rome that is a jewel of the Roman Baroque period. Wearing a cardinal-appropriate red and black velvet tunic dress, Wintour, for whom Costume Institutes space was renamed, said the exhibit shows the in”uence of the papacy over millennia. Part of the power of the church has been how they look, and how they dress,Ž Wintour told The Associated Press. They have this extraordinary presence.Ž Wearing his redtrimmed clerical garb and red zucchetto, or beanie, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the Vaticans culture minister, told the crowd at Palazzo Colonna that clothing oneself is both a material necessity and a deeply symbolic act that was even recorded in the biblical story of Adam and Eve. God himself was concerned with dressing his creatures,Ž Ravasi said.Vatican, Versace and Vogue team up for exhibitBy NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTO/DOMENICO STINELLISCardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, right, talks to designer Donatella Versace at Palazzo Colonna in Rome, Feb. 26. Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic ImaginationŽ is an exhibit set to open May 10 at the Mets Costume Institute in New York.

Page 20 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 5, 2018 OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN 6 The iconic strains of Maurice Ravels BoleroŽ „ with crescendo building in sound and tempo to a stunning climax „ set the stage for audience applause and shouts of approval for the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra on Sunday evening. But it was internationally acclaimed German violinist Sabrina-Vivian Hopcker, with a stirring, virtuoso performance of Polish composer Henryk Wieniawskis Concerto, Violin, No 2,Ž who just about stole the show at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center in Punta Gorda. While celebrated throughout Europe, it was one of the young violinists rare performances in the United States, and her “rst in Florida, invited here by CSO maestro Raffaele Ponti. She captivated the audience, playing the three movements of Wieniawskis concerto with a combination of verve, clarity, style and a bit of showmanship. At times, the sold-out audience appeared to be spellbound by her command of the instrument, her mastery of the music and the style of her performance. At she concluded the third movement „ energetic allegros con fuoco and moderato „ with a ”air, the audience rose as one with long, sustained shouts and applause. It was the second time the audience came out of their seats before intermission. The “rst was after Bolero, referred to by CSO violinist Paul Urbanick as one massive crescendo,Ž with the beginning slow wail of a ”ute, than ramping up, progressively in tempo, through tenor sax, clarinet, bassoon, English horn and then the entire orchestra, ending with an explosion of sound, leaving Ravels masterpiece resounding through the arena. It has become the most widely recorded classical piece written in the 20th Century, used in movies like 10Ž in 1980, featuring Bo Derek seductively emerging from a swim as the music intensi“es around her. In introducing the piece at CPAC on Sunday, Ponti said he once was discussing it one time with young men who had seen the “lm, and applauded them for their interest in Ravel. To which they replied, Whos Ravel?Ž After intermission, the orchestra performed Howard Hansons Symphony Op. 3, No. 3,Ž one of “ve symphonies written by the American composer who, for 40 years, was director of the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester in New York. It was the fourth Hanson piece played by the orchestra under Ponti, including his symphonies Nos. 2 and 5, and his Merry Mount Suite. No. 3, played Sunday, was commissioned in the 1930s by the CBS Symphony Orchestra, in commemoration of the 300th anniversary of the “rst Swedish settlement in Delaware. As with much of his music, the piece featured string instruments, particularly cellos, with dramatic chords by brass and percussion, climaxing, then fading away, concluding with a march into the future. Once again, the audience came to its feet, saluting Ponti and the orchestra. After the concert, Hopcker praised not only the orchestra, but the city of Punta Gorda as well. Beaming, she said, Punta Gorda is an amazing place „ its weather, its sunsets, its beautiful harbor, its wonderful people. On a walk along the harbor after breakfast,Ž she said, I saw a dolphin for the “rst time in my life, right there in front of me!Ž Even getting here was easy, she said, ”ying Allegiant from Miami right into Punta Gorda. It was special.Ž As for the CSO, she said, They mix together. They melt with each other well. In my “rst rehearsal, I was impressed with the cello section. You have a great conductor, and you are interested in students. Thats so very important. You should be very proud of your orchestra.ŽAudience gives Charlotte Symphony a 10By BILL JONESSUN CORRESPONDENT Charlotte Symphony Orchestra maestro Raaele Ponti congratulates violinist Sabrina-Vivian Hopcker as the audience stands to applaud her recent performance.

Would you be intrigued with a ”owering perennial plant named King MidasŽ or Porcelain Rose?Ž How about Red King HubertŽ or Madame Butter”y?Ž These are cultivars of cannas that are well adapted to our hot Florida climate and are now in local garden centers. They not only have large ”owers, some actually have colorful foliage and grow from under 2 feet tall to over 6 feet in height. Cannas can make a great versatile and sustainable impact in your yard. Cannas are tropical to sub-tropical perennials that have foliage similar to a small banana. Their perennial nature provides colorful foliage ranging from green to greenish blue, and from purplish to yellow or white striped. Add ”owers that come in ivory, yellow, rose, orange, salmon, crimson and red and you have a plant that will improve the looks of any landscape. Cannas are often used in borders or mass planted in round or square beds for a formal look. Cannas will bene“t from rich soil so consider adding several inches of well-rotted manure as you prepare the site before planting. Select a site that is full sun for best growth; some partial shade can be tolerated however. Cannas generally come as potted plants or bare-root rhizomes that are planted one to two feet apart depending on the ultimate size of the speci“c cultivar. Supplemental feeding plus adequate water will help guarantee optimum blooming. Careful removal of the spent ”owers will help promote subsequent ”owering throughout the season. Consider growing cannas in pots for small space gardening. Four to “ve gallon plastic pots with holes drilled for drainage make an ideal setting for cannas. Generally, less fertilizer and water is used, and exposure to soil-dwelling insects and nematodes is greatly reduced. Potted cannas can be placed wherever you need them to brighten up a dull spot. They can actually be buried up to their rims to blend in with the landscape. Besides dividing rhizomes, you can also grow cannas from seed. As cannas seeds have a tough seed coat, soaking them in warm water for 24 hours helps speed and increase germination. If the seeds are started early enough, you can actually get ”owering sized plants this summer. Cannas beds quickly get overcrowded and will need rejuvenation each year. Rejuvenation will allow for a clean-up of the bed and resetting of the best rhizomes. Dig up the clumps and clean out the old rhizomes. Look for vigorous rhizomes which contain viable eyes (sprouts). Clean the selected rhizomes and replant at once in the landscape or pots with enriched soil. Selecting which cannas varieties to grow is a wide open task. Keep in mind that there are two different kinds of ”ower types. Flowers arranged close together are called gladiolus ”oweringŽ cannas. Classi“ed as orchid ”oweringŽ the other type of cannas has loosely arranged, narrow petals. Cannas are further classi“ed into groups in consideration of their heights. Very Tall Growing cannas are sometimes called giant cannas. They are 4 feet tall and were “rst introduced in the 1950s. Cultivars such as Aida,Ž La BohemeŽ and Madame Butter”yŽ “t into this category and are named after operas. The next group is labeled as Low Growing which grows to about 36 inches. Good for gardens or containers, Rosen Kavalier,Ž Shell Pink,Ž and Tiger LilyŽ are several representatives of this cannas type. The smallest group of cannas is called Dwarfs and will grow to only about 18 inches tall. These cultivars are named appropriately „ Doc,Ž GrumpyŽ and Happy.Ž Cannas rhizomes are available in most garden centers around our county. Seeds may have to be obtained through mail-order catalogs or through the Internet.

The News Wire Monday, March 5, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER OSCARS TO BRING AN UNPREDICTABLE AWARDS SEASON TO A CLOSESee page 6. WASHINGTON „ President Donald Trumps administration appears unbowed by broad domestic and international criticism of his planned import tariffs on steel and aluminum, saying Sunday that the president is not planning on exempting any countries from the stiff duties. Speaking on CNNs State of the Union,Ž White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: At this point in time theres no country exclusions.Ž Trumps announcement Thursday that he would impose tariffs of 25 percent and 10 percent, respectively, on imported steel and aluminum, roiled markets, rankled allies and raised prospects for a trade war. While his rhetoric has been focused on China, the duties will also cover signi“cant imports from Canada, Mexico, South Korea, Japan and the European Union. The Pentagon had recommended that Trump only pursue targeted tariffs, so as not to upset American partners abroad. But Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Sunday that was not the direction the president would take. Hes talking about a fairly broad brush,Ž Ross said on ABCs This Week.Ž He rejected threats of retaliation from American allies as pretty trivial.Ž Few issues could blur the lines of partisanship in Trump-era Washington. Trade is one of them. Labor unions and liberal Democrats are in the unusual position of applauding Trumps approach, while Republicans and an array of business groups are warning of dire economic and political consequences if he goes ahead with the tariffs. Trade politics often cut along regional, rather than ideological, lines, as politicians re”ect the interests of the hometown industries and workers. But rarely does a debate open so wide a rift between a president and his party „ leaving him almost exclusively with support from his ideological opposites. Good, “nally,Ž said Sen. Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat and progressive as he cheered Trumps move. Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, a Democrat who has called for Trump to resign, agreed. I urge the administration to follow through and to take aggressive measures to ensure our workers can compete on a level playing “eld,Ž Casey tweeted. This moment of unusual alliance was long expected. As a candidate, Trump made his populist and protectionist positions on trade quite clear, at times hitting the same themes as one of the Democratic presidential candidates, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. This wave of globalization has wiped out totally, totally our middle class,Ž Trump told voters in the hard-hit steel town of Monessen, Pennsylvania, during one of his campaign stops. It doesnt have to be this way.Ž Trumps criticism of trade agreements and Chinas trade policies found support with White House: No exemptions from steel, aluminum tariffsBy KEVIN FREKING and ZEKE MILLERASSOCIATED PRESSTARIFFS | 4 AP PHOTOPresident Donald Trump listens during a meeting with steel and aluminum executives in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Thursday, in Washington. At 87, Maxine Stanich cared more about improving the quality of her life than prolonging it. She suffered from a long list of health problems, including heart failure and chronic lung disease that could leave her gasping for breath. When her time came, she wanted to die a natural death, Stanich told her daughter, and signed a do not resuscitateŽ directive, or DNR, ordering doctors not to revive her should her heart stop. Yet a trip to a San Francisco emergency room for shortness of breath in 2008 led Stanich to get a de“brillator implanted in her chest „ a medical device to keep her alive by delivering a powerful shock. At the time, Stanich didnt fully grasp what she had agreed to, even though she signed a document granting permission for the procedure, said her daughter, Susan Giaquinto. That clarity came only during a subsequent visit to a different hospital, when a surprised ER doctor saw a de“brillator protruding from the DNR patients thin chest. To Stanichs horror, the ER doctor explained that the device would not allow her to slip away painlessly and that the jolt would be so strong that it will knock her across the room,Ž said Giaquinto, who accompanied her mother on both hospital trips. Surgery like this has become all too common among those near the end of life, experts say. Nearly 1 in 3 Medicare patients undergo an operation in the year before they die, even though the evidence shows that many are more likely to be harmed than to bene“t from it. The practice is driven by “nancial incentives that reward doctors for doing procedures, as well as a medical culture in which patients and doctors are reluctant to talk about how surgical interventions should be prescribed more judiciously, said Dr. Rita Redberg, a cardiologist who treated Stanich when she sought care at the second hospital. We have a culture that believes in very aggressive care,Ž said Redberg, who specializes in heart disease in women at the University of California, San Francisco. We are often not Never too late to operate? By LIZ SZABOKAISER HEALTH NEWSWASHINGTON „ After months of bluster and threats toward North Korea, President Donald Trump said his administration would talk with the government of Kim Jong Un about its nuclear arms and long-range missile programs. President Barack Obama told Trump, before the new president was sworn in, that North Korea would be the most pressing global problem he would have to solve during his term. Since then, Trump has at times suggested that he would use the U.S. nuclear arsenal to take out North Koreas. His sudden pivot toward talks is just the latest example of how his policy stances often change suddenly. They, by the way, called up a couple of days ago and said, We would like to talk,Ž Trump said of the Kim government Saturday night at the annual Gridiron Dinner. And I said, So would we, but you have to de-nuke, you have to de-nuke.Ž Trump then turned to one of his mostused verbal crutches when he wants to avoid promising a speci“c outcome. So, lets see what happens. Lets see what happens,Ž Trump said, according to a pool report released by the White House. But we will be meeting and well see if anything positive happens. Its been a long time,Ž Trump said. Its a problem that should have been “xed a long time ago.Ž After some of his critics warned he might start a major Asian con”ict „ or even a nuclear one „ Trump softened his brash tone on North Korea Saturday, saying, Maybe positive things are happening. I hope thats true and I say that in all seriousness. I hope thats true,Ž he said. Trump has long said that he would never talk with Kim government over its nuclear and missile program. For example, he said in a Twitter post Aug. 30: Talking is not the answer!Ž But Saturday night, Trump went as far as to say direct talksŽ with Kim are possible. I wont rule out direct talks with Kim Jong Un. I just wont,Ž Trump said. As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, thats his problem, not mine... He must be a “ne man.ŽTrump says US will meet with North KoreaBy JOHN T.

Since the amount is so large, is there a special place in your Baby Steps plan for it? „ Julie Dear Julie, The fact that its a large amount of student loan debt doesnt change anything. Baby Step 2 is where you pay off all debt except for your home. I hope you have a nice, large income with which to “ght that big, nasty pile of student loan debt. Believe it or not, Ive seen even worse situations. Ive talked to people who went $200,000 into debt for a four-year degree in a “eld where theyll make $50,000. That kind of thinking and behavior is ridiculous, but its out there. Whatever you do, dont let this student loan debt hang around for years and years. Youve got to get focused and intense about getting control of your money. That means living on a strict, basics-only monthly budget. After that, start throwing every nickel and dime you can scrape together and save toward those student loans as fast as possible. Your income is your largest wealth-building tool, Julie. You cant save, and plan for the future, when all your money is ”ying out the door to pay back debt! „ DaveBetter late than neverDear Dave, I have a credit card that I havent made a payment on in almost two years. The debt has been sold a couple of times, and now a collector is saying I owe $1,200. The original amount was $500. Id like to work something out, but I cant afford $1,200. What should I do? „ Luanne Dear Luanne, Theyre asking for $1,200 because theyve added things like interest and late fees. They want to make as much money as possible on an old debt they bought for pennies on the dollar. If you can afford $500 right now, ask if theyll accept a one-time payment to settle the account. Get it in writing if they accept the offer, and dont give them a penny until after you get a copy of the written agreement. Once you have the agreement in hand, send them a money order or cashiers check for $500. Do not, under any circumstances, give them electronic access to your bank accounts. You waited too long to take of your obligation, Luanne. That made things more dif“cult and more stressful than necessary. Im glad you decided to do the right thing, and clean up your mess, though. Better late than never! „ Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored seven best-selling books, including The Total Money Makeover. Follow Dave on the web at daveramsey.com and on Twitter at @DaveRamsey.Dont let it hang around!Dave Ramsey COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) „ Gun store owners called it the Trump slump.Ž Sales of “rearms slowed dramatically after the election of Donald Trump as president in 2016 allayed fears of a Democratic crackdown on gun owners. That trend has continued in recent weeks even with talk of gun control in Congress and among business leaders following the Feb. 14 massacre of 17 people at a Florida high school. In the past, gun massacres generally led to an uptick in sales as people worried about the government restricting access. But with Parkland, things are different. The day after the election, its just like somebody turned a faucet off,Ž said David Dobransky, 67, who owns Dobransky Firearms, a small gun shop in North Canton, Ohio. Since then, sales there have been cut in half, and nothing the president or Congress has done or said following the Florida shooting has improved business. Gun owners apparently have faith that Trump wont impose more restrictions, gun show owners say. Thats even with the confusing messages Trump has sent in the past week. He has cast himself as a strong supporter of the National Ri”e Association but on Wednesday criticized lawmakers for being too fearful of the NRA to take action. He also reaf“rmed positions opposed by the NRA, such as banning gun sales to those under 21. Then the next day, Trump met with NRA of“cials and tweeted theyd had a Good (Great) meeting.Ž The NRAs executive director, tweeting about the same meeting, said Trump and Vice President Mike Pence dont want gun control.Ž At Rapid-Fire Firearms in Rapid City, South Dakota, business is just like normal,Ž owner Robert Akers said Thursday, contrasting business with the panic buying under President Barack Obama. In an earnings conference call last week, American Outdoor Brands, which owns Smith & Wesson, said revenue fell by one-third over the past three months, consistent with a drop since Trump was elected. Demand dropped in December and January, before the Florida shooting and the debates on gun laws that followed, he said. The company doesnt expect sales to improve much over the next year. Sturm Ruger and American Outdoor Brands have both seen their stocks plunge since Trump was elected, as they have mostly reported disappointing sales in recent months. American Outdoor Brands has plunged 67 percent since the presidential election and Sturm Ruger is down 28 percent. Potentially dampening sales further, four major retailers last week „ Kroger, Dicks Sporting Goods, L.L. Bean and Walmart „ announced they will no longer sell guns to anyone under 21. In addition, outdoor retailer REI says its halting future orders of some popular brands „ including CamelBak water carriers, Giro helmets and Camp Chef stoves „ whose parent company also makes ammunition and assault-style ri”es. Over the past 30 years, U.S. gun production has tripled. Nine million were produced in 2015, compared with 3 million in 1986, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Those “gures dont re”ect sales since Trump took of“ce, bringing with him the perception he was friendlier to gun owners. The U.S. also imports millions of guns annually.Trump slump in gun sales continues despite control debateBy ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINSASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOA portion of the rack displaying various models of semi-automatic sporting ries is seen at Dukes Sport Shop in New Castle, Pa. on Thursday, March 1, 2018.

Skyler and Jamie Scott relocated to Phoenix from St. George, Utah, in January to nish Jamies pregnancy and deliver quintuplets under care at St. Josephs Hospital and Medical Center. You go through a lot of things when you nd out youre expecting ve babies at the same time,Ž Skyler Scott told The Arizona Republic The Scotts struggled with infertility for ve years after having their sons Shayden, 12, and Landon, 7, according to the couple.

We must fight negative thought patterns and poutings or else they will neutralize our lives, leaving us ineffective and miserable. Cheer up, God loves you and has plans for you beyond your greatest dreams. BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) „ The co-founder of Ben & Jerrys ice cream knew he was disturbing the peace with a noisy demonstration against fighter jets. Ben Cohen told the Burlington Free Press thats exactly the point. Cohen was one of three activists arrested for disorderly conduct Saturday after blasting jet noise from a mobile public address system in Burlington, Vermont. He said the goal was to simulate what it might be like for residents living under the flight path of Vermont National Guard F-35 fighters. He tweeted that if he violated the city noise ordinance then the fighter jets will, too. Burlington voters will weigh in Tuesday on whether city officials should oppose F-35s at the Burlington International Airport. Critics say the F-35s are noisier than fighters currently used by the Vermont National Guard.ODD NEWS Ben & Jerrys co-founder: I knew I was disturbing the peace considering the chance of bene“t and chance of harm, and how that changes when you get older. We also fail to have conversations about what patients value most.Ž While surgery is typically lifesaving for younger people, operating on frail, older patients rarely helps them live longer or returns the quality of life they once enjoyed, according to a 2016 paper in Annals of Surgery. The cost of these surgeries „ typically paid for by Medicare, the government health insurance program for people over 65 „ involve more than money, said Dr. Amber Barnato, a professor at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Older patients who undergo surgery within a year of death spent 50 percent more time in the hospital than others, and nearly twice as many days in intensive care. And while some robust octogenarians have many years ahead of them, studies show that surgery is also common among those who are far more frail. Eighteen percent of Medicare patients have surgery in their “nal month of life and 8 percent in their “nal week, according to a 2011 study in The Lancet. More than 12 percent of de“brillators were implanted in people older than 80, according to a 2015 study. Doctors implant about 158,000 of the devices each year, according to the American College of Cardiology. The total cost of the procedure runs about $60,000. Procedures performed in the elderly range from major operations that require lengthy recoveries to relatively minor surgery performed in a doctors of“ce, such as the removal of nonfatal skin cancers, that would likely never cause any problems. Research led by Dr. Eleni Linos has shown that people with limited life expectancies are treated for nonfatal skin cancers as aggressively as younger patients. Among patients with a nonfatal skin cancer and a limited time to live, 70 percent underwent surgery, according to her 2013 study in JAMA Internal Medicine. Surgery poses serious risks for older people, who weather anesthesia poorly and whose skin takes longer to heal. Among seniors who undergo urgent or emergency abdominal surgery, 20 percent die within 30 days, studies show. With diminished mental acuity and an old-fashioned respect for the medical profession, some aging patients are vulnerable to unwanted interventions. Stanich agreed to a pacemaker simply because her doctor suggested it, Giaquinto said. Many people of Stanichs generation thought doctors were God. They never questioned doctors „ ever.Ž Dr. Margaret Schwarze, a surgeon and associate professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, said that older patients often dont feel the “nancial pain of surgery because insurance pays most of the cost. When a surgeon offers to “xŽ the heart valve in a person with multiple diseases, for example, the patient may assume that surgery will “x all of her medical problems, Schwarze said. With older patients with lots of chronic illnesses, were not really “xing anything.Ž Even as a doctor, Redberg said, she struggles to prevent other doctors from performing too many procedures on her 92-year-old mother, Mae, who lives in New York City. Redberg said doctors recently treated her mother for melanoma „ the most serious type of skin cancer. After the cancer was removed from her leg, Redbergs mother was urged by a doctor to undergo an additional surgery to cut away more tissue and nearby lymph nodes, which can harbor cancerous cells. Every time she went in, the dermatologist wanted to refer her to a surgeon,Ž Redberg said. And Medicare would have been happy to pay for it.Ž But her mother often has problems with wounds healing, she said, and recovery would likely have taken three months. When Redberg pressed a surgeon about the bene“ts, he said the procedure could reduce the chances of cancer coming back within three to “ve years. Redberg said her mother laughed and said, Im not interested in doing something that will help me in three to “ve years. I doubt Ill be here.Ž The momentum of hospital care can make people feel as if theyre on a moving train and cant jump off. The rush of medical decisions doesnt allow time to deliberate or consider the patients overall health or what their goals and values might be,Ž said Dr. Jacqueline Kruser, an instructor in pulmonary and critical care medicine and medical social sciences at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Many hospitals and health systems are developing decision aids,Ž easy-tounderstand written materials and videos to help patients make more informed medical decisions, giving them time to develop more realistic expectations. After Kaiser Permanente Washington introduced the tools relating to joint replacement, the number of patients choosing to have hip replacement surgery fell 26 percent, while knee replacements declined 38 percent, according to a study in Health Affairs. (Kaiser Permanente is not af“liated with Kaiser Health News, which is an editorially independent program of the Kaiser Family Foundation.) In a paper published last year in JAMA Surgery and the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management, Schwarze, Kruser and colleagues suggested cr eating narratives to illustrate surgical risks, rather than relying on statistics. Instead of telling patients that surgery carries a 20 percent risk of stroke, for example, doctors should lay out the best, worst and most likely outcomes. In the best-case scenario, a patient might spend weeks in the hospital after surgery, living the rest of her life in a nursing home. In the worst case, the same patient dies after several weeks in intensive care. In the most likely scenario, the patient survives just two to three months after surgery. Schwarze said, If someone says they cant tolerate the best-case scenario „ which involves them being in a nursing home „ then maybe we shouldnt be doing this.Ž Maxine Stanich was admitted to the hospital after going to the ER because she felt short of breath. She experienced an abnormal heart rhythm in the procedure room during a cardiac test „ not an unusual event during a procedure in which a wire is threaded into the heart. Based on that, doctors decided to implant a pacemaker and de“brillator the next day. Dr. Redberg was consulted when the patient objected to the device that was now embedded in her chest. She was very alert. She was very clear about what she did and did not want done. She told me she didnt want to be shocked,Ž Redberg said. After Redberg deactivated the de“brillator, which can be reprogrammed remotely, Stanich was discharged, with home hospice service. With nothing more than her medicines, she survived another two years and three months, dying at home just after her 90th birthday in 2010.OPERATEFROM PAGE 1 white working-class Americans whose wages had stagnated over the years. Victories in big steel-producing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana demonstrated that his tough trade talk had a receptive audience. Both candidates in a March 13 House election in Pennsylvania have embraced the presidents plans for tariffs. They addressed the topic Saturday in a debate that aired on WTAE in Pittsburgh. For too long, China has been making cheap steel and theyve been ”ooding the market with it. Its not fair and its not right. So I actually think this is long overdue,Ž said Democratic candidate Conor Lamb. Unfortunately, many of our competitors around the world have slanted the playing “eld, and their thumb has been on the scale, and I think President Trump is trying to even that scale back out,Ž said Republican candidate Rick Saccone. But Trumps GOP allies on Capitol Hill have little use for the tariff approach. They argue that other industries that rely on steel and aluminum products will suffer. The cost of new appliances, cars and buildings will rise if the president follows through, they warn, and other nations could retaliate. The end result could erode the presidents base of support with rural America and even the blue-collar workers the president says he trying to help. There is always retaliation, and typically a lot of these countries single out agriculture when they do that. So, were very concerned,Ž said Sen. John Thune, R-S.D. Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., asked the administration to reconsider its stance. He said American companies could move their operations abroad and not face retaliatory tariffs. This scenario would lead to the exact opposite outcome of the administrations stated objective, which is to protect American jobs,Ž Walker said. The Business Roundtables Josh Bolten, a chief of staff for President George W. Bush, called on Trump to have the courageŽ to step back from his campaign rhetoric on trade. Sometimes a president needs to, you need to stick to your principles but you also need to recognize in cases where stuff you said in the campaign isnt right and ought to be drawn back,Ž he said on Fox News Sunday.Ž The president needs to have the courage to do that.Ž Tim Phillips, president of the Koch Brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity, noted that Trump narrowly won in Iowa and Wisconsin, two heavily rural states that could suffer if countries impose retaliatory tariffs on American agricultural goods. It hurts the administration politically because trade wars, protectionism, they lead to higher prices for individual Americans,Ž Phillips said. Its basically a tax increase.Ž The president wasnt backing down, at least on Twitter, where he posted this message: Trade wars are good, and easy to win.ŽTARIFFSFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON „ Russia will neverŽ extradite any of the 13 Russians indicted by the United States for election-meddling, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, even as he insisted they didnt act on behalf of his government. Putins comments in an NBC News interview airing Sunday illustrated the long odds that the Russian operatives will ever appear in U.S. court to answer charges of running a massive, secret social media trolling and targeted messaging operation to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and cant compel it to hand over citizens, and a provision in Russias constitution prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries. Never. Never. Russia does not extradite its citizens to anyone,Ž Putin said. Even if the Russians never face justice in the United States, the sweeping indictment served the added purpose of increasing the publics awareness about the elaborate foreign campaign to meddle in American democracy, legal experts have said. For years, the Justice Department has supported indicting foreigners in absentia as a way to shame them and make it harder for them to travel abroad. The detailed, 37-page indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller last month alleges Russian operatives working for the Internet Research Agency used fake social media accounts and on-the-ground political organizing to exacerbate divisive political issues in the U.S. Posing as American activists, the operatives tried to conceal the efforts Russian roots by purchasing space on U.S. computer servers and using U.S. email providers. Yet Putin argued his government has little to answer for until the U.S. provides some materials, speci“cs and data.Ž He said Russia would be prepared to look at them and talk about it,Ž while repeating his governments insistence that it had no role in directing the operatives to act against the United States. I know that they do not represent the Russian state, the Russian authorities,Ž Putin said. What they did speci“cally, I have no idea.ŽPutin: Russia will never extradite citizens accused by USBy JOSH LEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESS ALEXEI DRUZHININ, SPUTNIK, KREMLIN POOL PHOTO VIA APRussian President Vladimir Putin gestures while speaking during a massive rally in his support as a presidential candidate at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow, Russia, Saturday.BOSTON „ From Virginia to Massachusetts, about 1 million people remain without power, two days after a destructive noreaster, leaving some unsure when they could return home and schools unsure if they would open on time.

The Sun /Monday, March 5, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 NATION Unions representing West Virginia teachers and service personnel say they will stay out on strike after the state Senate voted to cut the 5 percent pay raise they had negotiated with the governor. A joint legislative committee has been formed to address differences in the pay raise bills of the state Senate and House. In a joint statement Saturday, the American Federation of TeachersWest Virginia, West Virginia Education Association and the School Service Personnel Association said Senate President Mitch Carmichael and his leadership team had left them with no choice after they voted to reduce the raise to 4 percent. The statement said all public schools in West Virginia would be closed again Monday and remain closed until the Senate honors the agreement that was made.Ž Teachers walked out of classrooms statewide starting Feb. 22. The Republicancontrolled Senate voted Saturday evening to approve the lower pay raise, bucking teachers, Republican Gov. Jim Justice and the Republican-controlled House, which approved the 5 percent raise Wednesday. House members later Saturday wouldnt agree to the Senates move, and the two bills will now have to be reconciled by a legislative conference committee. House of Delegates spokesman Jared Hunt said Sunday no meeting had been scheduled yet of the conference committee. It wasnt yet clear when it would meet. The committee will include Delegates Bill Anderson, R-Wood, and Brent Boggs, D-Braxton, and House Education Chairman Paul Espinosa, R-Jefferson; and Senate Majority Leader Ryan Ferns, R-Ohio, Senate Finance Chairman Craig Blair, R-Berkeley, and Sen. Robert Plymale, D-Wayne. The Senates vote came as the teachers strike rolled into its second weekend. Republican Sen. Greg Boso of Nicholas introduced the amendment to lower the raise, which the full Senate adopted by a vote of 19-15. Senate Republicans have repeatedly emphasized exercising restraint with state spending, while agreeing that teachers and West Virginias other public workers are all underpaid. That compensation increase is long overdue,Ž said Sen. Charles Trump, a Berkeley Springs Republican. Weve been able to do this without tax increases.Ž Approving a 4 percent raise, instead of the 5 percent hike, will save the state $17 million, Boso said. Democratic lawmakers said their R epublican counterparts should approve the deal the governor negotiated with union leaders for a 5 percent raise. Were all caught up in our egos,Ž said Democratic Sen. Douglas Facemire of Sutton. He noted the impact of the impasse on students, including those who depend on schools for their meals. For 1 percent were going to let kids go hungry,Ž he said. Teachers are protesting pay thats among the lowest in the nation, rising health care costs and a previously approved 2 percent raise for next year after four years without any increase. Justice told school superintendents gathered at the Capitol on Friday that he believed the votes for the raise were there. One administrator noted the impasse is affecting 277,000 students and 35,000 employees. Protesting teachers have argued that education in West Virginia „ where more than 700 classrooms lack fully certi“ed full-time teachers „ needs to be a higher priority among politicians. Pay starts at about $33,000 a year, lower than in surrounding states. Justice said in a statement Saturday night that his sole focus is getting our children back to school. This wrangling needs to stop right now.ŽW.

PHILADELPHIA „ Prosecutors in Bill Cosbys retrial want to call as many as 19 other women to the witness stand to show he had a “ve-decade pattern of drugging and harming women. Cosby is due in court for a pretrial hearing Monday, less than two weeks after his daughters death, as his lawyers clash with prosecutors over how many of his accusers are allowed to testify at his April 2 sexual assault. Judge Steven ONeill allowed just one other accuser to take the witness stand at Cosbys “rst trial, which ended in a hung jury last year. Prosecutors had proposed calling as many as 13. They added six more to the list for the retrial, including model Janice Dickinson. Cosbys lawyers have said they would seek to delay the retrial if other accusers are given a chance to testify. They said they would need extra time to look into the allegations. Jury selection is slated to begin March 29. Cosbys lawyers wrote in a court “ling that some of the other accusers allegations date to the 1960s and are virtually impossible to defend against.Ž Developing a defense to any of these outdated claims will require unusual amounts of investigative effort that cannot be completed by the present trial date,Ž the lawyers wrote. Cosbys 44-year-old daughter, Ensa, died of kidney disease Feb. 23. His lawyers have given no indication they would seek to delay Mondays hearing. In January, the 80-yearold entertainer was suddenly out and about in his hometown of Philadelphia in what legal experts said was an effort to rebuild his good-guy image. Over a two-week span, Cosby emerged from a long period of near-seclusion to have dinner with friends at a restaurant and to give his “rst comedy performance in more than two years. Prosecutors are counting on other accusers testifying to show there was a sinister side to Cosbys public persona as Americas Dad,Ž cultivated through his role as an affable Jell-O pitchman and family sitcom star. Cosby has pleaded not guilty to charges he drugged and molested former Temple University womens basketball of“cial Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home. He remains free on bail. Prosecutors led off Cosbys “rst trial with testimony from the one other accuser they were allowed to call, Kelly Johnson, who worked for Cosbys agent. She testi“ed that Cosby knocked her out with a pill during a 1996 meeting at the Bel-Air Hotel. She said she woke up to “nd her dress disheveled, her breasts exposed and Cosby forcing her to touch his genitals. Cosbys lawyers argue that the other accusers largely unsubstantiated accusations arent enough to meet the strict legal standard for letting prosecutors present evidence of a defendants prior bad conduct. They argued that allowing the women to take the witness stand would force the jury make separate determinations about whether Cosby harmed them, devolving his retrial into a series of mini-trials. The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand, Johnson and Dickinson have done.Prosecutors in Bill Cosby retrial want 19 women to testifyBy MICHAEL R. SISAKASSOCIATED PRESS Judge in Oklahoma church camp case has accepted other pleasOKLAHOMA CITY (AP) „ A newspaper has found that an Oklahoma judge who approved probation for a man who admitted to raping a 13-year-old Texas girl at a church camp has approved similar plea agreements for other accused sex offenders who also received probation. Marshall County District Judge Wallace Coppedge accepted a deal in which a cook was sentenced in January to 15 years of probation after pleading guilty to raping and sodomizing the girl at the Falls Creek church camp. The Oklahoman reports that records show Coppedge presided over seven other cases in which a sex offender received probation. Records indicate most outcomes were the result of plea agreements between prosecutors and defense attorneys because of problems that arose after the cases were “led.

Page 6 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 5, 2018 ENTERTAINMENT LOS ANGELES „ The 90th Academy Awards brought the most tumultuous awards season in recent memory to a close Sunday with a ceremony that confronted the post-Harvey Weinstein era for Hollywood while handing Net”ix its “rst feature “lm Oscar, honoring the transgender drama A Fantastic WomanŽ and awarding Allison Janney best actress. Host Jimmy Kimmel got the Oscars underway Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with an opening monologue that mixed Weinstein punchlines with earnest comments about reforming gender equality in Hollywood. And of course, Kimmel „ returning to the scene of the ”ub „ dove straight into material about last years infamous best-picture mix-up. I do want to mention, this year, when you hear your name called, dont get up right away,Ž said Kimmel. Give us a minute.Ž But while Kimmel spent a few moments on the “asco known as Envelopegate, he expended far more minutes frankly and soberly discussing the parade of sexual harassment allegations that have coursed through the movie business in the wake of the revelations regarding Weinstein. He also spoke straightforwardly about the industrys poor record for female directors and equal pay. We cant let bad behavior slide anymore,Ž said Kimmel. The world is watching us.Ž Gesturing to a giant statue on the stage, he praised Oscar, himself for keeping his hands where you can see themŽ and for having no penis at all.Ž But Kimmel introduced the broadcast as a night for positivity,Ž and cited, among other things, the box-of“ce sensation of Black Panther.Ž I remember a time when the major studios didnt believe a woman or a minority could open a super hero movie „ and the reason I remember that time is because it was March of last year,Ž said Kimmel. The nights acting honors are considered fairly locked for nominees, and things began as expected. Two widely admired veterans won their “rst Oscars: Allison Janney (I, TonyaŽ) took best supporting actress and Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, MissouriŽ) won best supporting actor. I did it all by myself,Ž deadpanned Janney, who added after a pause: Nothing could be further from the truth.Ž Rockwell dedicated his award to his late friend and fellow New York actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died in 2014. For my buddy, Phil Hoffman,Ž said Rockwell, raising his Oscar. Kimmel, with stopwatch in hand, also emphasized keeping acceptance speeches short. He promised the shortest speech would win a Jet Ski. Go long, and winners might get Lakeith Stans“eld screaming Get out!Ž as the actor brie”y reprised his character from the Oscar-nominated Get OutŽ on stage. Early wins went to makeup that adorned Gary Oldmans Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour,Ž the period costume design of Phantom ThreadŽ and the sound editing for Christopher Nolans Dunkirk.Ž Guillermo del Toros monster fable The Shape of Water,Ž which came in with a leading 13 nods, took best production design. Best documentary went to Net”ixs Icarus,Ž Bryan Fogels investigation into doping in sports, aided by the assistance of Grigory Rodchenkov, the head of the Russian anti-doping laboratory who candidly discussed the doping scheme under Vladimir Putin. Its the “rst feature “lm Oscar for Net”ix. Fogel dedicated the award to Rodchenkov, our fearless whistleblower who now lives in grave danger.Ž At least now we know Putin didnt rig this election,Ž said Kimmel after the IcarusŽ win. In another topical moment, Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani joined Kenyan-born Lupita Nyongo to salute the so-called Dreamers „ immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children and here without permanent protection from deportation. Dreams are the foundation of Hollywood and dreams are the foundation of America. And, so, to all the Dreamers out there, we stand with you,Ž Nanjiani said. Later, Pixars colorful ode to Mexican culture CocoŽ won best animated “lm. Best foreign language “lm went to Chiles A Fantastic Woman,Ž Sebastian Lelios drama starring transgender actress Daniela Vega. The biggest thank you of all to the people of Mexico,Ž said director Lee Unkrich to loud applause. Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong. Representation matters.Ž No Golden Globes-style fashion protest was held by organizers of Times Up, the initiative begun by several hundred prominent women in entertainment to combat sexual harassment. Their goals go beyond red carpets, organizers said in the lead-up to the Oscars. We did the dress code thing and now were doing the work,Ž said #MeToo founder Tarana Burke on the red carpet. Yet the #MeToo movement is sure to have a prominent place in the awards. Greta Gerwig (Lady BirdŽ) is just the “fth woman nominated for best director. Rachel Morrison MudboundŽ is the “rst woman nominated for best cinematography. Ashley Judd, the “rst big-name actress to go on the record with allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein, is among the scheduled presenters. Before he was tossed out of the “lm academy after a storm of sexual harassment and sexual abuse allegations, Weinstein was for the last two decades the grand poobah of the Oscars. By one studys “ndings, Weinstein was thanked more often than God in acceptance speeches. Twenty years ago, a TitanicŽ sweep won record ratings for the Oscar broadcast. But ratings have recently been declining. Last years show drew 32.9 million viewers for ABC, a four percent drop from the prior year. Even more worrisome was a slide in the key demographic of adults aged 18-49, whose viewership was down 14 percent from 2016. Movie attendance also hit a 24-year low in 2017. But this year is already off to a strong start, thanks largely to Ryan Cooglers Black Panther,Ž which many analysts believe will play a prominent role at next years Oscars. In three weeks, it has already grossed about $500 million domestically. The “lms star, Chadwick Boseman, was placed front-and-center, at the Dolby Theatre. This year, the academy prohibited the PwC accountants who handle the envelopes from using cellphones or social media during the show. Neither of the PwC representatives involved in the mishap last year, Brian Cullinan or Martha Ruiz, will return to the show. However, multiple reports say that Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will be returning to again present best picture, a year after they announced La La LandŽ as the winner instead of Moonlight,Ž because Cullinan handed them the wrong envelope. The Bonnie and ClydeŽ duo will, 12 months later, get take two.Ž With just a few minutes before the show started, Kimmel and his team emerged from his dressing room chanting, Lets get it right this time!Ž Kimmel launches positive Oscars, Coco, Janney winBy JAKE COYLEAP FILM WRITER PHOTO BY CHRIS PIZZELLO/ INVISION/ APJimmy Kimmel speaks at the Oscars on Sunday, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The Sun /Monday, March 5, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: Do you have any information on cytochrome P450 testing for drug sensitivity? „ S.S. ANSWER: Cytochrome P450 is a family of enzymes that are important for cell metabolism and critical for detoxifying many drugs. Any given person has a particular set of P450 enzymes, and understanding them sometimes can help determine the correct exact drug dosages. In a few cases, people with certain P450 enzymes cannot safely take some drugs. However, the clinical usefulness of P450 testing is currently limited, and there are only a handful of drugs for which testing is recommended (for those who want to see the full current list, it's available on the Food and Drug Administration website at https://tinyurl.com/P450drugs). The majority of the drugs for which P450 testing is recommended are for HIV or cancer treatment. I do think that this eld, called pharmacogenomics, is going to become increasingly useful, and it is likely that it will be used to more precisely guide drug choices and dosages. DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband bought a used car about two years ago, and every time I ride in his car „ no matter the time of day or where we are going „ about 10 minutes into the ride, I begin to yawn uncontrollably. These are deep, shuddering yawns that border on painful. Soon thereafter, my nose begins to run, my eyes water and my throat becomes scratchy. Allergies seem the obvious answer, but I have a lot of allergies that don't cause yawning. The yawns are very uncomfortable! Do you have any advice, other than taking my car all the time? I will note that none of my other family members react this way. „ E.R. ANSWER: Well, before today, I'd never heard of yawning being a sign of allergies. Yawns are common with fatigue or poor sleep, where air quality is poor and, in at least one spectacular case I heard of, from excess nervousness. The runny nose and watery eyes are very consistent with allergies. I was able to nd other case reports of people having yawns as an initial symptom of allergies. If avoiding the oending agent (i.e., whatever is in the car) isn't possible, premedicating with an antihistamine or prescription medication may be of benet. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 78-year-old male in good health. This past June, my urologist gave me a test, which revealed that I was at very low risk for prostate cancer. Since then, my numbers have gradually crept up, and the most recent test (a month ago) showed a sharp spike upward. The doctor has scheduled a prostate biopsy in two weeks. I am thinking that I would like another blood test prior to the procedure. Obviously, I am hoping the numbers will have at least leveled o and hopefully gone down. I would appreciate your thoughts on this. „ R.S. ANSWER: You likely are talking about the PSA test or a relative. I do think conrming test results prior to biopsy is reasonable, as there are rare lab errors, but more commonly, men can develop inammation in the prostate, causing a "spike" in the reading. There are several new tests that may improve the accuracy of the PSA. The best-known is the PCA3. Another increasingly used option is a prostate MRI, which can better dene the anatomy and guide biopsy. As I have recently written about the pain some men feel with biopsy, reducing biopsy need would be benecial. It is not yet accepted treatment to forgo biopsy on someone with (conrmed) high PSA but a normal MRI.DEAR ABBY: I'm struggling because my stepson has chosen to get married on my birthday. I have been his stepmom for 18 years. It feels like a punch in the chest. My in-law family members are saying things like "OMG, how do you feel about that? I can't believe you're going to let that happen. It will no longer be YOUR special day." My feelings are deeply hurt. My husband says it's no big deal and I shouldn't let it bother me. But every time someone asks me about it, I feel hurt, and when I'm nally by myself, I cry. Is what my stepson is doing bad etiquette, a slap in the face or no big deal? „ Birthday Girl In Illinois DEAR BIRTHDAY GIRL: That your stepson would be married on your birthday isn't a slap in the face; it's a compliment. If you like his ancee, consider her to be the ultimate birthday present. Think of it this way: Your stepson and his new wife will never forget your birthday. DEAR ABBY: As a single man, I have been on a few dating websites, and I'd like to say something to the women I have encountered: What is it about you that makes you worth my time to pursue? Many women show a lot of pictures, but reveal very little about themSELVES. Then some of them say in their last sentence that they "want more than 10 words to say hello." These women seem well-educated but unable to write more than a short paragraph about who they are. Ladies, if you want more than a hi or hello, write something about yourselves beyond your likes and dislikes. Describe who you are, what your hopes and dreams are, and say something that I, as a man, would respond to in my introduction. „ In The Dark DEAR IN THE DARK: You make a valid point. I'll be sure to reread your letter if I ever need to join a dating site, and so, I am sure, will my "sisters" out there. Thanks for the heads-up! Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about the American casual way of living. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: Why don't Americans dress up anymore? You rarely see people in most parts of the country get dressed up to go out to dinner. I recently noticed a couple of young women wearing jeans and a T-shirts in church. I miss the days when women dressed stylishly in beautiful dresses when they went out for dinner in a nice restaurant, or to the opera. So many women throw on sloppy attire and consider themselves dressed. It's as though our national pride in ourselves has gone." „ Wallace T., Brandywine, Del. Dear Heloise: I have trouble using a zipper on clothing due to arthritis, so my husband took a paper clip and attached it to each zipper, and that made it much easier to hold, which helps me dress myself. „ Ruth D., Findlay, OhioPharmacogenomics eld shows promise in drug dosage Man's choice of wedding day steals spotlight away Americans dress casuallyHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

The best apology is a behavioral change. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Question: Which way, right or left? Answer: Neither of the above. What you really need are more ideas. To come up with more ideas, bypass your analytical mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have faith in your own mind, but you still take questions to your friends, to the experts, to the universe „ because only a fool would think his own mind has the be-all and end-all answer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You feel you can tell who is in the know and who isnt, but listen to them all anyway. Youll get the most useful nuggets from people who dont understand the scope of what youre dealing with. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even though theres much to learn from listening to what people say, theres even more to learn from what people ask you today. Questions will reveal the speakers bias, needs, wants and interests. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You dont know how much you need to laugh until someone makes you laugh. This is most easily done by one who knows you well or just happens to be irresistibly cute. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (March 5). At rst, it will seem as if this year comes at you in small doses and tiny portions, but nonetheless, youll soon discover that youre in an entirely new and improved position. A standout conversation will open doors in June. The success of family favorably aects your work. Theres a payout in August. Cancer and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 29, 27 and 40.

He can outlift me and he can outrun me for the most part. Ive been playing a long time counting the minors, and Ive never met somebody who can do both better than me.Ž But there is a question of how well Eovaldi will pitch. He looked sharp Sunday, working two solid innings against his former Yankees mates in his second spring outing, hitting 100 mph from the start and allowing two hits but no runs while throwing 28 pitches. I feel good,Ž Eovaldi said. I feel strong. I just want to go out there and compete, and thats what I was able to do today.Ž But the test will be how Eovaldi, 28, holds up over the next seven months, given that only a half-dozen pitchers have come back from two TJs to start more than a handful of games.Returning from second TJ surgery would be one impressive feat for Eovaldi Raysbaseball.com/SpringSPRING TRAINING TOMORROW | 1:05 P.M.$2 HOT DOGSpresented by Kayem Franks*Schedule and game times are subject to change.

Michigan won 75-66. By RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressNEW YORK „ Zavier Simpson was a catalyst on both ends of the floor, running Michigans efficient offense and leading its lock-down defense, and back-up big man Jon Teske scored 14 as the 15th-ranked Wolverines beat No. 8 Purdue 75-66 Sunday to repeat as Big Ten Tournament champions. Fifth-seeded Michigan (28-7) became the first team to repeat as Big Ten Tournament champs since Ohio State in 2010 and 11. Simpson finished with 10 points, five assists and five rebounds and Moe Wagner led Michigan with 17 points, despite playing only 17 minutes because of foul trouble „ which plagued him all tournament. Thats where Teske stepped up. The 7-foot-1 sophomore scored 12 points in the first half and picked up the slack guarding Purdues 7-2 center Isaac Haas. Simpson and Teske put an exclamation point on Michigans four-day Madison Square Garden party with 6:02 left in the second half. The 6-foot Simpson drove and dished to Teske, who finished with a one-handed slam over Haas. That made it 66-48 and brought chants of Teskey!Ž from the Michigan fans „ who showed up in droves for the first Big Ten Tournament played in New York. Purdue (28-6) chipped away late with Michigan missing free throws run but it was way too late. Haas led Purdue with 23 points, but Purdues top-two scorers, Carsen Edwards and Vincent Edwards, combined for 16 points on 6-of-22 shooting. This Michigan team has been coach John Beileins best on the defensive side since he took over in Ann Arbor in 2007. It starts with Simpson, the sophomore point guard harassing opponents best ball-handlers.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressMEXICO CITY „ Phil Mickelson ended the longest d rought of his career with a playoff victory Sunday over Justin Thomas in the Mexico Championship, capping off a final round of lustrous cheers in thin air that included Thomas holing a wedge for eagle on the final hole of regulation. Mickelson, who closed with a 5-under 66, won for the first time since the 2013 British Open at Muirfield, a stretch of 101 tournaments worldwide. I cant put into words how much this means to me,Ž Mickelson said. I knew it was going to be soon „ Ive been playing too well for it not to be. But you just never know until it happens.Ž Thomas was coming off a playoff victory at the Honda Classic last week, and he delivered the biggest moment at Chapultepec Golf Club. Tied for the lead, his shot to the 18th from 119 yards landed in front of the pin and spun back into the hole for an eagle and a 64. It almost was too good to be true. Thomas, who said Thursday he had never felt worse over the ball, had a 62-64 weekend and suddenly had a two-shot lead. Mickelson, who turns 48 in June, responded with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th and a 20-foot birdie putt on the 16th to tie Thomas. Tyrrell Hatton, playing in the final group with Mickelson, was stride for stride. He capped off a 3-3-3-3 stretch on the back nine with an eagle at the 15th. But on the final hole, Hatton missed the green to the right, chipped 10 feet by and missed the par putt for a 67 to fall out of a playoff.GOLF: Mexico ChampionshipMickelson ends longest drought with playo win in Mexico SEE GOLF, 4 AP PHOTOMiami Heat guard Dwyane Wade gestures after the singing of the National Anthem before the start of a game against the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday in Miami.

South Carolina beat the Bulldogs last April for the programs “ rst national championship, and now the Gamecocks (26-6) have their third straight SEC tournament title at Mississippi States expense.

The Sun / Monday, March 5, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Big SouthBy JEFFREY PARSONAssociated PressWICHITA, Kan. „ Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin took a moment late in Sundays game and was enjoying the atmosphere of his teams hard-fought regularseason finale. Im busy coaching, but I will admit it,Ž Cronin said, during that last under-four (minute) timeout, I stopped and looked around and thought, This is a great game.Ž And it ended with No. 10 Cincinnati outlasting No. 11 Wichita State 62-61 on Sunday to win the re gular-season title in the American Athletic Conference. Jacob Evans scored 19 points to lead Cincinnati (27-4, 16-2). Jarron Cumberland and Kyle Washington each scored 11 points for the Bearcats, and Gary Clark added 10. Clark scored Cincinnatis final four points, a layup with four minutes remaining and two free throws with 3:27 to play, giving Cincinnati a 62-58 lead. The Bearcats did not score again, but held on in a slugfest that featured only two baskets in the final five minutes. I will tell you, honestly, when both teams were playing so hard for so long, it becomes a game of attrition,Ž Cronin said. And sometimes, that takes away your ability to make shots. Youre just battling so hard.Ž Landry Shamet and Shaquille Morris each scored 16 points for Wichita State (24-6, 14-4). The Shockers needed a victory to share the conference title and would have earned the top seed in the AAC tournament after having defeated Cincinnati earlier this season. It felt like a game that should have been played at a neutral court late in March,Ž Shamet said. It was a hell of a fight.Ž Cincinnati had a 16-1 run in the first half to take a 27-16 lead, but Wichita State closed within 37-36 by halftime. The game was tight throughout the second half, and the Shockers had three shots in the final 15 seconds. Clark blocked a shot by a driving Shamet, giving Wichita State the ball out of bounds under its own basket with 9 seconds remaining. The Shockers got the ball to shooting guard Conner Frankamp, who was guarded by Cincinnati center Nysier Brooks, the mismatch they anticipated. Frankamps jumper missed long, and Darral Willis put-back hit the back of the backboard as time expired. I thought Conners shot was going in; it looked good,Ž Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall said. I would do the same thing again.Ž Clark said winning the game, and earning the conference title, with defense on the road was perfect. The Bearcats outscored Wichita State 16-2 off turnovers. Everything about today was amazing,Ž Clark said. I mean, this place, it just roars. And thats the type of environment you want to play in, to win in. We didnt want to share the title, and it was great to get that done.Ž CONFERENCE CALLThe American Athletic Conference hoped for a big event when scheduling this game for the final Sunday of the regular season. With two highly ranked teams trying to earn a conference title in front of a national TV audience, everything went according to plan. I think this was great for our conference.Ž Cronin said. This team here (Wichita State), now that theyre healthy, theyre the real deal. Playing Wichita State twice makes us a better team. I hope we play them again.Ž HISTORY LESSONSCincinnati had not played in Wichita since 1981, an 87-67 Shockers victory behind Antoine Carr, one of the programs greatest players. The scoring record for Koch Arena is still held by the most famous Bearcat: Oscar Robertson. On March 1, 1958, „ in the buildings third year of existence „ Robertson scored 50 points in an 86-82 Cincinnati win.

The result, Jones said, was better than the Highlander s execution. Radford (22-12) called timeout with 13 seconds left, setting up the final play. It was meant to be a double screen, but as Jones dribbled away the time, one of his teammates forgot his role, forcing Jones to make his move with about three seconds remaining. I had to let it go,Ž he said. You shoot it, and I looked at it after a while and I was like, Thats good,Ž he said. Its one of the greatest feelings ever.Ž Officials reviewed the play to be sure no time was left on the clock, and once that was confirmed, Radford fans began celebrating. Jones had 13 points and six assists to lead the Highlanders, wholl carry a seven-game winning streak into the tournament. Travis Fields Jr. added 12 points on 4-for-4 shooting from 3-point range and Ed Polite Jr. and Devonnte Holland had 11 each. The Highlanders, in their seventh season under coach Mike Jones, were picked to finish seventh in the preseason. Everybodys shocked because nobody believed in us but Radford,Ž Polite said. We played with that chip on our shoulder the whole year.Ž Mike Jones choked up talking about the path his career has taken. Hired away from VCU after being an assistant under Shaka Smart when the Rams made their Final Four run in 2011, he took over a program that had won just five games the previous year and was losing players. Its been a long road,Ž he said, noting that the victory evened his career record at 115-115. Scottie James had 20 points, 16 after halftime, and 13 rebounds to lead the Flames (20-14), who lost to Radford for the third time this season. Lovell Cabbil added 15 points, but missed a 3-pointer to set up the Highlanders final possession. He also was defending Jones on his game-winner. He hit a tough shot,Ž Cabbil said. I thought I got a decent contest. He just made a big shot at the right moment.Ž Holland did all his scoring in the first half, including six points during a 10-4 run that broke a 14-all tie late in the first half. The Highlanders led 26-21 at halftime.Jones 3-pointer lifts Radford past Liberty, 55-52Purdue entered the game shooting 42 percent from 3 and attempting 23 per game. The Boilermakers finished 4 for 17 from behind the arc. On consecutive possessions early in the second half, the Wolverines forced turnovers by Purdue and turned them in transition 3s „ one my Muhammad-Ali AbdurRahkman and then by Simpson. That put Michigan up 11 with 15:06 left, prompted Boilermakers coach Matt Painter to call a timeout and had Wolverines fans screaming Go Blue!Ž Michigan, the team playing its fourth game in four days, showed no signs of wear. The Wolverines shot 50 percent and committed five turnovers. Last seasons unlikely run to the tournament championship by Michigan was as an eighth seed and it started with a harrowing plane accident near Ann Arbor, Michigan. The team plane skidded off a run after takeoff was aborted. No one was hurt but everyone was shaken up. Still, the team got to Washington and then ripped off four straight wins to grab an NCAA bid. This one was less dramatic „ though surely the Wolverines did not mind.BIG PICTUREMichigan: The Wolverines will enter the NCAA Tournament on a ninegame winning streak.

Page 4 SP www.yoursun.com Monday, March 5, 2018 / The SunOBITUARY: Roger BannisterBy RICK STROUDTimes Staff WriterINDIANAPOLIS … Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson has set the tone for every offensive lineman in the NFL draft. Monotone. With a no-nonsense delivery that was serious but bordered on hilarious, Nelson used a 16-minute media session at the leagues scouting combine this week to make the argument that he is the type of player whose performance and attitude would lift any offense. Yeah, I would consider myself a nasty player, Nelson said. I want to dominate all my opponents. I want to take their will away to play the game.Ž But offensive lineman worthy of a top-10 selection typically play tackle, not guard. In fact, the last guard taken that high was Jonathan Cooper, who was drafted No. 7 overall by the Arizona Cardinals in 2013. No guard has gone in the top five since the same team selected Leonard Davis with the second pick in the 2001 draft. Nelson makes a good argument why that trend may be about to change. You have guys that are dominating the NFL right now in Aaron Donald, Geno Atkins, Fletcher Cox, that have just been working on interior guys, and you need guys to stop them,Ž Nelson said. Im one of those guys. You talk to quarterbacks, and they say if a D-end gets on the edge, thats fine, they can step up in the pocket and they can throw. A lot of quarterbacks if given the opportunity can do that. Thats what I give is a pocket to step up in. I also help the offense establish the run through my nastiness, and establishing the run also opens up the passing game, so I think its a good choice.Ž He would be a great choice for any team, especially for the Bucs. Sure, Tampa Bays biggest need is on defense, which ranked last overall in the NFL in 2017 and had the fewest sacks (22) in the league. The Bucs cant rush the passer and they struggled covering receivers. General manager Jason Licht has largely ignored the defensive line the past four drafts, taking Noah Spence in the second round of 2016 and defensive tackle Stevie Tuikolovatu in the seventh round last year. If North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb somehow slips past the Indianapolis Colts at No. 3 and is still there when the Bucs make the No. 7 selection, he would likely be the pick. But you shouldnt bet on it. There are better, if not the best odds, that Nelson could be there for the Bucs. Considering that Kevin Pamphile and Evan Smith are expected to hit free agency when the new league year begins March 14, Nelson would fill a glaring need. The Bucs tied for 27th in rushing average last season with 3.7 yards per attempt. Nelsons words are only exceeded by his tape. He does seem to take away opponents will to play the game. That matter-of-fact statement is demonstrated by plays that have become part of Irish lore. There was the time he lifted a leaping LSU defender by grabbing him under the helmet and pancaking him to the ground. There was the play when he leveled a defensive tackle, linebacker and safety … all on the same snap. And for pure hustle, how about when he exploded from his left guard position across the formation and flattened a blitzing Georgia linebacker. You just saw him game after game,Ž Notre Dame tackle Mike McGlinchey said. There was some kind of play that was just jaw-dropping. He makes plays all over the field.Ž With his baby face and sweeping bangs, Nelson doesnt appear to be the same guy who struck fear in defenders. Where did that nasty streak come from? Maybe because he was the youngest of 39 siblings, nephews and nieces. The little guy, he said. Except he weighed nearly 11 pounds at birth and has grown to be 6-foot-5, 325 pounds with an 82 ‡ inch wingspan. If the Bucs are ever going to end their 10-year post-season drought, they will have to find some balance on offense. Running the football also is a good way to help the defense by controlling time of possession. It protects the quarterback. It wears down the opposing defense. Behind Nelson and McGlinchey, the Irish won the Joe Moore Award given to the nations best offensive line. They paved the way for running back Josh Adams to rush for 1,430 yards. Youre probably not going to get a better teammate,Ž McGlinchey said of Nelson. Hes a phenomenal player, phenomenal person. Cares as much as anybody in the building, works as hard as anybody in the building and when he gets into the meeting room, when he steps across those white lines, hes a different animal.ŽNFL: BucsTone-setting Notre Dame guard Nelson is the nasty player,Ž the Bucs really needAP PHOTO/DARRON CUMMINGSNotre Dame offensive lineman Quenton Nelson speaks during a press conference at the NFL football scouting combine Thursday in Indianapolis. Still, hes vital to Miamis hopes right now. Wade is clearly going to play a sizable role in the Heat playoff push, in all sorts of ways. The savvy veteran who can be a de facto assistant coach in the locker room, on the practice floor and on the bench. The guy who makes crowds in Miami roar simply by removing his warmups and walking to the scorers table to check into games. The closer, wholl be on the floor in the most critical minutes of games. Hes just not starting. I started embracing it when I was at the previous team, because Im a winner,Ž Wade said. Im always about doing whatever I can to help whatever team Im on be in its best position. Ive done that my whole life. Its not just now. Ive done it in the Olympics, Ive done it all over the place. It takes nothing away from who I am or what Ive accomplished.Ž Before now, the last season that Wade played and wasnt a full-time starter was the summer of 2008 „ on the U.S. Olympic team at the Beijing Games, where he was the leading scorer on the way to a gold medal. Prior to that, he thinks it was his fourth-grade team. It really is similar to the role he had with the USA team,Ž Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Hed come in and be a force of nature.Ž There have been some signature moments already in his second stint with the Heat. Wades winner against Philadelphia last week was the 12th of his career. In the first 29 seasons of Heat basketball, only two players posted consecutive 25-point games off the bench. Wade is already the third name on that list. At home against Detroit on Saturday, he was serenaded with M-V-PŽ and We Want WadeŽ chants. The guy is just a great player,Ž said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy, Wades first coach with the Heat in 2003. Has been since he walked into the league. To still be doing what hes done these last few games at this point in his career is pretty impressive. But hes back home. Hes back home. I think he probably feels that.Ž Wade agrees, saying the return has been an energy boost. It has also been emotional, as South Florida tries to recover from last months shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High that left 17 people dead „ including a boy whose parents chose to bury him in a Wade jersey. Wade met with the family of that teen, Heat fan Joaquin Oliver, on Saturday night Its bigger than basketball,Ž Wade said. Its also just like old times, albeit in a new role. The thing about Dwyane, hes probably adapted and evolved and changed his role as much as any star player in this game,Ž Spoelstra said. That is part of his brilliance. He figures things out.Ž Hes done that since Day 1 in Miami. Wade „ one of the greatest shooting guards to play the game „ was drafted by Miami as a point guard. He became a superstar shooting guard and NBA Finals MVP, a league scoring champion and absolute first option in Miami until he wooed LeBron James and Chris Bosh to the Heat to end his days as the lone Alpha dog. He tried to emulate the Miami days in Chicago, tried to fill a role in Cleveland. And now, this. Wade thinks hes changed teams for the final time. Whether he plays past this season or not, this is his role until the end. It is the final reinvention. I want to be my best self,Ž Wade said. If Im on the bench to start games, if Im on the bench to end games, as long as were winning. Thats all I care about.ŽWADEFrom Page 1The sudden-death playoff „ the sixth in eight PGA Tour events this year „ didnt last long. Thomas went long on the par-3 17th hole and chipped to just inside 10 feet. Mickelsons 18-foot birdie putt for the victory swirled around the cup, more agony for a 47-yearold who has seen plenty of it since his last victory. Thomas, however, never got his par attempt on the right line. They finished at 16-under 268. Mickelson won his third World Golf Championships title and, just a month after bein g on the ver g e of falling out of the top 50 in the world for the first time in two decades, moves to No. 18 in the world. Shubhankar Sharma, the 21-year-old from India who started with a twoshot lead, didnt make his first birdie until the 12th hole. He finished with consecutive bogeys for a 74, six shots behind in a threewa y tie for ninth. That will leave him on the bubble at No. 66 in the world for making it back to the next World Golf Championship, the Dell Match Play, in three weeks in Texas. Sharma first flies home for the Hero Indian Open next week. Hatton tied for third with Rafa Cabrera Bello, who holed a bunker shot for ea g le on the o p enin g hole and was among six players who had at least a share of the lead. Mickelson was the first player who appeared to seize control with a birdie on No. 10 to take the lead, and facing a reachable par 5 and a drivable par 4. Instead, Lefty made it as entertaining as ever. Going for the green in li g ht rou g h with the ball below his feet, he hooked it deep into the bushes right of the green, and played his next one when he could barely see the golf ball. That stayed in the trees, and his fourth shot narrowly missed another tree before settling 10 feet away. He made bogey, and just like that, it was a sprint to the finish 7,800 feet above sea level.GOLFFrom Page 1AP FILE PHOTOBritish athlete Roger Bannister breaks the tape to become the first man ever to break the four minute barrier in the mile at Iffly Field in Oxford, England. By CHRIS LEHOURITESAssociated PressLONDON „ Roger Bannister, who as a lanky medical student at Oxford in 1954 electrified the sports world and lifted postwar Englands spirits when he became the first athlete to run a mile in under 4 minutes, has died at 88. Bannister died Saturday in Oxford, the city where he accomplished the feat many had thought impossible. He had been slowed in recent years by Parkinsons disease and, before that, an ankle shattered in a 1975 auto accident. On a typically cool, wet and blustery English day in May nearly 64 years ago, Bannister put on his spikes and ran four laps around a cinder track in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds, for one of the defining sporting achievements of the 20th century. The image of the young Bannister „ head tilted back, eyes closed and mouth agape as he strained across the finishing tape „ captured the publics imagination, made him a global celebrity and boosted the morale of Britons still suffering through austerity measures. Bannister soon retired from competition and went on to a long and distinguished career in medicine, and his mark was broken over and over again, with the world record for the mile now at 3:43.13. But he was a national hero to the end. Prime Minister Theresa May saluted Bannister as a British sporting icon whose achievements were an inspiration to us all.Ž While he will forever be remembered for his running, Bannister said he considered his contributions to neurology more satisfying. I wouldnt claim to have made any great discoveries, but at any rate I satisfactorily inched forward in our knowledge of a particular aspect of medicine,Ž he said. Im far more content with that than I am about any of the running I did earlier.Ž Olympic gold medalist Sebastian Coe, president of the IAAF, the international sports governing body, said Bannisters death was a day of intense sadness both for our nation and for all of us in athletics.Ž There is not a single athlete of my generatio n who was not inspired by Roger and his achievements both on and off the track,Ž Coe tweeted. On the day he made history, May 6, 1954, Bannister looked up at the white-and-red English flag whipping in the wind atop a church and figured he would have to call off the attempt. But then, shortly after 6 p.m., the wind subsided, and the race was on. With two friends running with him as pacesetters, Bannister churned around Oxfords Iffley Road track, his long arms and legs pumping, his lungs gasping for air. He put on a furious kick over the final 300 yards and nearly collapsed as he crossed the finish line. The announcer read out the time: 3...Ž The rest was drowned out by the roar of the crowd. The 3 was all that mattered. Bannister followed up his milestone a few months later by beating Australias John Landy in the Miracle MileŽ or Mile of the CenturyŽ at the Empire Games in Vancouver, British Columbia, with both men clocked at under 4 minutes. Bannister regarded that as his greatest race because it came against his fiercest rival. Its amazing that more people have climbed Mount Everest than have broken the 4-minute mile,Ž Bannister said in an interview with The Associated Press in 2012. Bannister was born on March 23, 1929, in the London borough of Harrow. At the outbreak of World War II, the family moved to the city of Bath, where Bannister sometimes ran to and from school. His passion for running took off in 1945 when his father took him to a track meet at Londons White City Stadium, built to host the 1908 Olympics. He resolved to take up running seriously at Oxford.Bannister, who broke the 4-minute mile, dies at 88

Were going to be really smart with his workload out of the gate,Ž m anager Kevin Cash said. Him sitting back and watching last year, I think it helped him as a pitcher, and what he wanted to do when he got back. Youll see a little more mix to his repertoire and hell alter his delivery a little bit more. Hes so athletic and physical on the mound, thats not an easy thing to do. And it seems like hes doing it well.Ž Subtexted to the big question are some others: Are they sure hes healthy?Eovaldi had essentially completed his rehab last September from his Aug. 29, 2016, surgery, working his way back to pitch in the Double-A and Triple-A playoffs, and he would have rejoined the Rays had they stayed in the wild-card race to pitch in relief. Even so, it was a good process to go through. I had already proved to myself that I was healthy and in my mind I was ready to go,Ž he said. So I was able to have a regular offseason. I didnt have any doubts or anything like that.ŽWhat is he pitching for this year?Beyond the obligatory mantra to help the team win,Ž its primarily to re-establish himself as a quality major-league starter, and to be rewarded accordingly financially. He posted a career-low 3.39 ERA in 2013 for the Marlins and a career-best 14-3 record for the Yankees in 2015, though he has a 38-46, 4.21 overall record. But also, after signing with the Rays because of the sterling reputation of previous head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield and his staff in rehabbing pitchers, its to justify their investment. The Rays paid Eovaldi $2 million to not pitch last year for the right to pay him $2 million to pitch this season, plus earn up to another $3.5 million in incentives. They took extremely good care of me,Ž he said, and Im ready to give back to the organization now.ŽHow will he be di erent?Most stark may be more use of his curveball. Eovaldi leads with the hard stuff, throwing his fastball nearly 60 percent of the time, avera g in g 9 6. 9 m p h, then a slider and splitter. I hear of big-name guys who throw hard, but Ive never seen anything like him with his consistent velocity,Ž said reliever Dan Jennings, a former Marlins/current Rays teammate. Making more use of the slower curve will both present a different look to hitters and disrupt their timing and allow Eovaldi, in theory, to work deeper.Is starting the best plan?The stats crowd is adamant that Eovaldi should be used in relief, citing the significant dropoff in his effectiveness when he faces hitters a third time in a game (.336 average, .890 OPS) and the small sample of starters succeeding after a second such surgery. But Eovaldi, who had his first Tomm y J ohn as a high school junior in 2007, is just as determined to return to a regular rotation routine, and the Rays say they are definitelyŽ committed to going along. (His contract, interestingly, also contains $2.375 million in relief incentives.) I definitely want to be a starter and hold it out throughout the entire year,Ž Eovaldi said. As of now, we havent had any limitations, and we havent even talked about it.ŽHow good can he be?Not only is Eovaldi healthier after the surgery and rehab, he believes he is wiser, too, having closely watched teammates Archer, Alex Cobb, Jake Odorizzi and others work hitters much of last year. Each pitcher comes in with little different things, and your ears are always open down there,Ž he said. I definitely feel like Ive learned a lot more about the game.Ž Can he regain his past form? Hopefully better,Ž Eovaldi said. Well see what happens.ŽDouble jeopardy?Rays RHP Nathan Eovaldi is working to become the 32nd pitcher to make it back to the majors after a second Tommy John surgery, and the 12th as a starter.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman made his “ rst appearance and retired one of the three batters he faced. Mallex Smith had three hits, including a single off Chapman. ORIOLES 10, RED SOX 8: Adam Jones hit a pair of RBI doubles and a single and Manny Machado added a two-run double for Baltimore. Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers hit back-to-back homers for Boston off Gabriel Ynoa, who allowed six runs in two innings. The Orioles announced “ rst baseman Chris Davis had an MRI on his sore right elbow and no structural damage was found. Manager Buck Showalter estimated Davis would be out another three to “ ve days. Showalter also noted top prospect Austin Hays should be ready to play next week after missing time with a sore right shoulder. NATIONALS (SS) 7, METS 3: Trea Turner got two hits and scored for a Washington split squad. Steven Matz was again tagged in his second start for New York, giving up “ ve hits and two walks while retiring just two batters. Matz, returning from surgery on his left elbow that cut last season short, has allowed up 10 runs in 1 2/3 innings this spring. Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier both hit their “ rst spring home runs for New York. The Mets announced that expected opening day starter Jacob deGrom threw a 40-pitch bullpen session and felt no ill effects from the back stiffness that sidelined him for several days. PIRATES 9, TWINS 3: Josh Harrison had two hits after an 0-for-9 start for Pittsburgh. Jameson Taillon made his second start for the Pirates and pitched 2 2/3 innings, giving up two runs on two hits and a walk.

Phillies prospect Scott Kingery got two hits and is batting .389 in exhibition play. ASTROS 4, CARDINALS 1: AL MVP Jose Altuve hit his “ rst home run „ a solo shot off St. Louis starter Michael Wacha „ and Carlos Correa had two hits for Houston.

The As designated powerhitting Brandon Moss for assignment.By JON MEOLIThe Baltimore Sun (TNS)SARASOTA „ Even after an encouraging set of MRI results that found Orioles first baseman Chris Davis sore elbow to have no issuesŽ structurally, manager Buck Showalter said the team is still going to be plenty cautious with its franchise first baseman this month. A little improvement today,Ž Showalter said. Anytime you start dealing in that area, youre concerned, but we were good to get the structural feel behind us. I think youll see him. Hopefully, he manages well and he gets back in the flow sometime next week. We trust him. I can tell by the way he feels now that he wants to make sure it doesnt go backwards again. Were going to be cautious with it. But I dont think were going to have to hold Chris back.Ž Showalter reiterated Sunday a three-to-fiveday shutdown for Davis, and said missing that long wont necessarily hamper his preparation for the season. Davis might not return until hes comfortably able to play first base defensively as well as swing. The soreness originated late last month when Davis felt as if he might have slept on his arm wrong, and was limited to designated hitter duty as a result. But the team scheduled an MRI on Saturday after the discomfort didnt improve, and Showalter said Saturday that Davis had some soreness in the flexor mass area of the elbow, which is often cited before m ore serious arm injuries. I dont think this was from swinging,Ž Showalter said. This was just some irritation he had there from throwing and it kind of got away from him. Its good to get it out of the way early, the way I look at it.Ž In the interim, the club will get more repetitions for Mark Trumbo and Pedro Alvarez at first base, with new camp invitee Danny Valencia also mixing in there.MLB: OriolesShowalter on Davis elbow injury: Were going to be cautious with itAP FILE PHOTOBaltimore Orioles Chris Davis (19) walks off after striking out during the fifth inning of a spring exhibition game against the Philadelphia Phillies, in Clearwater. By BILL WHITEHEADAssociated PressPORT ST. LUCIE „ With at least five necessary hurdles ahead of him, Jacob deGrom is running out of time to be the New York Mets starting pitcher on opening day. The right-hander tossed a 40-pitch bullpen alongside Rafael Montero, A.J. Griffin and Zack Wheeler on Sunday before the Mets home game against Washington. He did not, as way anticipated, face any hitters. DeGrom said two days ago he would be facing batters on Sunday, but somewhere along the line that plan changed. Instead, rehabbing Michael Conforto stepped into the batters box and tracked pitches without swinging in the bullpen outside the stadium. I honestly did not know what I was doing today. I thought I would probably face batters, but the plan was, I guess, to throw a bullpen. I think the plan is not to anything dumb and make sure everythings right,Ž deGrom said. Im looking to feel good, and thats been the case so far,Ž said deGrom, who flashed an impressive fastball and didnt hold anything back as he faced Conforto. DeGrom was the teams most consistent and reliable pitcher last year. He went 15-10 with a 3.53 ERA in 31 starts on a club that went 70-92 in Terry Collins last season as manager. The 29-year-old deGrom has been sidelined with lower back stiffness and missed time in camp due to the birth of his daughter. Thats hampered his drive toward getting the nod for the Mets first game, at home against St. Louis on March 29, an appearance new pitching coach Dave Eiland said deGrom deserves. Absolutely, hes earned it. Whether he pitches opening day or not, hes earned it, but weve got to be smart about this,Ž Eiland said. Eiland said deGrom has hurdlesŽ to go through and that theres no good reason to rush him. He added there are no exceptions on the staff and deGrom will have to face hitters five different times in March before the club opens the season at Citi Field. With Jacob deGrom we will not make an exception. Thats stupid,Ž Eiland said. Were not going to be careless just so he can pitch opening day. If it falls where he can, he will because he earned it. He deserves that start. But were not going to push the envelope and be careless and he starts opening day and doesnt start again until June. That would be pretty ignorant on our part,Ž he said. The plan is for deGrom to get back into a game on Tuesday, but that could be a simulated game facing batters on a back field. Hell then need to build up to a higher pitch-count over subsequent spring training starts. Weve got to see where it leads. If he cant get out there and get built up to 80, 90 pitches, then its not going to happen. But is there still time for him to do that? Yes,Ž Eiland said. Every days a hurdle. Today we crossed a big hurdle.Ž Conforto appreciated the chance to see electric stuffŽ as he recovers from shoulder surgery to repair a torn posterior capsule in his left shoulder. It looks effortless, and at the same time it has late life to it. His breaking stuff is pretty sharp. Sometimes you can see the hump in the breaking ball, but from Jake today there was no hump,Ž he said. I dont get to see deGrom on a daily basis, so whenever hes throwing a side I try to get out there.Ž NOTES: LHP Steven Matz struggled again in his second start, giving up five runs on five singles and two walks while getting only two outs vs. Washington. He threw 34 pitches. My ball was just up really, and I was missing my spot by a few inches. Its frustrating because I feel healthy,Ž said Matz, who has 10 earned runs this spring. ... SS Amed Rosario, who left Saturdays game with knee irritation, checked out fine. Manager Mickey Callaway said he should be back in the lineup Tuesday against Houston.
