PUNTA GORDA „ Citing clutter on the roadways, the city of Punta Gorda removed speed limit signs a decade ago along several key roads in Punta Gorda Isles. In order to curb speeding and increase safety, newly-minted Punta Gorda Police Department Chief Pam Davis said the signs need to go back up. Davis said the department has received numerousŽ complaints of speeding, as well as concerns over a lack of speed limit signs in Punta Gorda Isles, especially along Aqui Esta Drive, a major thoroughfare. When of“cers pulled the drivers over, they did not know the speed limit because theres no speed limit signs,Ž Davis said last week during a City Council meeting. With an abundance of part-time residents, visitors and drivers that only work in PGI, Davis said, using traf“c control devices „ like speed limit signs „ is key in residential areas. I do not believe the drivers will actually research the speed limits in Florida to know that, in our community, its 30 mph. We do have to have it posted in our communities,Ž the chief said. That will curb some of the speeding in thoroughfares and several feeder streets in PGI. Traf“c safety, quite frankly, is public safety and this will reduce some of the speeding.Ž City Council agreed, voting unanimously after discussing the matter to re-post up to 10 signs that were removed a decade ago. Bal Harbor Boulevard, West Olympia Avenue and Coronado Drive currently lack speed limit signs, while Aqui Esta only has a couple. The only speed limit sign Aqui Esta is on Baynard Street ... and only heading west into PGI. There are no signs for people that are coming out of PGI,Ž PGPD Cpt. Norman Nahra said. Speeding on Aqui Esta is an issue, he said.Punta Gorda to install more speed limit signs By JONATHAN SCHOLLESSTAFF WRITERSIGNS | 6SARASOTA „ In advance of Sarasota County of“cials receiving the formal afteraction review on Hurricane Irma next week, the three peer reviewers of the countys response discussed their observations Thursday. The county engaged Alan Harris, chief administrator/ emergency manager for Seminole County, Jonathan Lord, emergency management chief for Flagler County, and Manuel Soto, emergency manager for the city of Orlando, to conduct the peer review of the countys response to Hurricane Irma last September. For Harris, communications from emergency of“cials topped his list of areas for improvement. Trying to provide a consistent message across all media is a challenge,Ž Harris said during a telephone interview. And those messages, he added, need to be the same no matter what department or agency they were coming from. Emphasizing his point, Harris described a hypothetical individual who visits only one county website exclusively, paying no attention to other media. To ensure that individual gets necessary information about a hurricane, messages from Emergency Management need to be displayed on that particular website as well. No matter what the department, be it libraries, or parks and recreation, or animal services, the county needs to have the same information published on all these platforms, Harris said.Sarasota looks at lessons learned in Irmas wakeBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSARASOTA | 6MURDOCK „ At the next Charlotte County Commission meeting, commissioners will review and are expected to adopt their 2018 Federal Legislative Agenda. This compendium of local priorities covers a range of topics and issues. The following is a summary of highlights, listed under various categories.Water Resources and EnvironmentCharlotte supports efforts to improve the National Flood Insurance Program. The document also endorses the federal implementation of the RESTORE (Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies) Act, stemming from the 2010 Gulf oil spill, for the bene“t of Charlotte County. Moreover, Charlotte seeks to secure funding for its sewer system expansion, which aims to improve water quality to retain and increase tourism. The county also wants to amend existing Charlotte County water infrastructure authorization via the Water Resources Development Act to allow $16 million for the restoration of water quality in the impaired waters of Charlotte Harbor. Commissioners support adequate annual funding for the restoration of Manasota Key beaches, including additional funding speci“cally for shore protectionŽ studies not identi“ed in the annual administration budget. In addition, the commission urges the federal government to address sediment management and erosion of beaches on Manasota Key, and to provide for safer navigation. Charlotte opposes the potential expansion of energy exploration in Florida.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia Charlie Brox said courses he has taught for years on the Dynamics of SupervisionŽ out of the Herald Court Centre of Florida Gulf Coast University in Punta Gorda will live on without him. Brox brought the curriculum and a unique style „ which involved visiting all his students workplaces „ into the area. But this month will be Broxs last instructing the continuing education series of courses, he said. Over the span of about six years, Brox said he has taught over 100 students at Herald Court „ many of them leaders in the community „ from local banks and businesses to government agencies. The course series is designed to help current middle managers, “rst-line supervisors and potential supervisors expand their supervisory skill sets. Its a huge loss,Ž said City of Punta Gorda Human Resources Manager Phil Wickstrom. Charlie has a way of expressing himself in a classroom environment that makes people want to participate.Ž The best way to learn, is to do, according to Wickstrom. He has a very sneaky way of getting his students to participate,Ž Wickstrom said. I just love his style.Ž From jails and police cars to banks and more, Brox has spent a lot of time outside the classroom to bring lessons back in. I ride on the “re truck with them... At the bank, I sit with them,Ž Brox told the Sun last year. I “nd it adds a uniqueness to the class.Ž And many of his students have agreed, including some from the city of North Port as well. I have taken so many classes over the last 21 years working for the city, and no one has ever come to my of“ce to observe and really want to know what you do day-to-day,Ž said North Port Property Standards Division Manager Carol Kozabo, while taking the course in November. This man (Brox) truly enjoys teaching and has taken it to another level.Ž This is not Broxs “rst time retiring from teaching, but he said it will probably be his last. Before moving to Punta Gorda in 1999 with his wife, Brox said he retired from a longtime career involving similar instruction he spearheaded at a community college in Watertown, New York. He also had run a consulting business. But after living in Florida just a short time, Brox said he started to become restlessŽ and reactivated that business. Later while gol“ng, Brox said he met his nowsupervisor with FGCU, Bob Peterson, on the course. After several discussions we discovered common interests, and he [Peterson] introduced me to the leadership team at IMPAC University,Ž Brox said. Brox taught for two years at the now-closed IMPAC University out of Punta Gorda. And then around 2012, after FGCU opened the Herald Court Centre in Punta Gorda „ where adult continuing education courses are taught „ Brox said he got a meeting. I made my proposal, which they accepted as long as I developed the curriculum and recruited the organizations to send their supervisors to the course,Ž Brox said. Broxs “rst call was to the city of Punta Gorda, which agreed to send some Punta Gorda employees to the course. So the classes began with all students being from the city,Ž said Brox. As seminars continued to develop and were well received, the word was spread and we started to have participants from local banks, restaurants, the city, sheriffs department, “re department, police department, county and a local manufacturing plant.Ž Through relationship building, constant interaction with the students, case studies, and role playing, Brox said that the program has become a success.Ž And after Broxs latest class ends with a graduation on March 22, the course will continue at least on an interim basis under Petersons leadership, Brox said. I have enjoyed the journey very much... But it is time for new blood to take the program to a new level,Ž said Brox, who plans to continue volunteering for various causes in the community. At 82 and after 37 years of teaching, Brox said he wants to go while the going is good.ŽEmail: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comFGCU continuing education instructor retiringBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITER PHOTO FROM CHARLIE BROX Charlie Brox, retiring instructor of the Dynamics of Supervision courses at the Herald Court Centre of Florida Gulf Coast University, kneels bef ore his past students.

The Sun /Monday, March 12, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSENGLEWOOD „ When Hurricane Irma damaged homes last year, Myakka Elementary School student leaders reacted by collecting and sending donations to those in need. The same group from the Student Leadership Team recently showed they also care about the local community by fundraising for the Englewood Hospice House. This is really a motivated and amazing group of students (from third through “fth grades) who make up the Student Leadership Team,Ž said Michelle Brady, a second-grade teacher who oversees the team. After the hurricane, it was these group of kids who encouraged classmates to bring in school supplies and personal hygiene items they knew students would need.Ž A former teacher who now lives in Key West assured the Myakka River Elementary student leaders that the goods made it to children in need. They collected 1,000 bags,Ž Brady said. They were able to “ll large U-haul boxes which were taken by Englewood “re“ghters to take to an area that was hit hard by the hurricane.Ž The student leadership team worked together recently on collecting funds to donate locally. They brainstormed on what project they could take on as a group,Ž Brady said. One of the students said her mom was a nurse. Then students started talking about cancer. Some of the students have parents who are cancer survivors. Many knew someone who died of cancer which led to a conversation about the nearby Hospice House in Englewood.Ž Student leaders, which is made up of third through “fth graders, set a goal to raise $500 for the Hospice House. We made posters and put them all over the school,Ž said Maggie Shakan, 10, a fifth-grader and leadership team member. We asked all students to donate 25 cents a week. On Thursdays we all wore pink for cancer awareness.Ž Even some of the boys participated by wearing pink shades on their head or pink socks to school. Other Student Leadership Team members made a commercial which aired on the school morning announcements telling about the fundraiser. We reached our goal and then some,Ž Maggie said. We are happy we could help.Ž And help they did. They raised $545 and then the Englewood Rotary Club donated an additional $40. The club recently invited representatives of the Englewood Hospice House to the school to collect the check. There are somethings that Medicare doesnt cover for patients,Ž said Michael Argulewicz, clinical director for the Hospice House. Donations like this one from the students is very helpful. It helps a patient have therapy, a massage or items that arent provided for them that they would like. Sometimes it might be a special last meal or an art project. We will make a hand mold with the patient which can be given to the family to memorialize their loved one.Ž The Hospice House provides compassionate care for those facing a life-limiting illness or injury. Patients are given medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to their needs and wishes. This is a very thoughtful donation given by these students,Ž Argulewicz said. It will help several people who will appreciate the gift.ŽEmail: eallen@sun-herald.com Myakka Elementary students help cancer patientsBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHMembers of the Myakka River Elementary School Student Leadership Team recently donate $580 to the Hospice House in Englewood. WHAT IS HOSPICE HOUSE?Patients whose symptoms are unable to be managed at home can use Tidewell as an alternative after an injury or surgery. Hospice inpatient care can be done at a Hospice House. At each House, professional staff is available 24/7 and a physician specializing in symptom control visits daily. Together they develop a treatment plan that enables patients to return home and the most important things in their lives. Patients in need of continuous symptom control can be admitted to a hospice house for around-the-clock care while their condition is stabilized. When those symptoms are brought under control and patients and their family members feel comfortable making the transition, they can return to where most patients really want to be „ their own home. Each hospice house also has an adjacent staff center with space to host meetings, events and a wide variety of bereavement support groups that are free and open to the public. „ Source: Tidewell Hospice The Charlotte County Sheris Oce reported the following arrests: € Ashaunti Delisle-Winston Brown, 21, of Tampa.

The numbers were even worse for girls in that age group: 47.9 percent of them were overweight, up from 35.6 percent in 2013…2014. € The Physical Activity Council found that nearly 81.5 million Americans aged 6 and older were completely inactive in 2016. Lack of physical activity is a leading cause of obesity.A few of the many optionsThe good news is that there are plenty of physical activity and “tness alternatives out there to help you start out on the right foot. Most people say that one of the biggest deterrents of sticking to a workout program is the inability to get to the gym around work hours. Well, it doesnt get any more convenient than a gym that is never closed. Around the Clock Fitness, in Port Charlotte, offers a variety of amenities in its 16,000-square-foot facility. From cycle studio, group exercise room and equipment-“lled ”oor to personal training, kids zone and full-service caf, Around the Clock says it wants to make sure you have no reasons to avoid working out, since it is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We are also staffed 24 hours a day, so if you want help with something or you want a shake or a wrap at 2 a.m., you can get it,Ž said David Alix, general manager. Its set up so you can get your workout, get a shower, get changed, have breakfast and get to work.Ž Around the Clock says it keeps six certi“ed personal trainers on staff, who will sit down with potential members, if they want, and talk about what their speci“c “tness goals are. If the person ends up joining the gym, they may decide to use one of the trainers for a bit of extra guidance, but doing that is not a requirement for membership. The group classes are also taught by the personal trainers. Melissa Cohen, who had already been lifting for three or four days a week on her own at the gym, said she joined an Around the Clock Bootcamp class, taught by personal trainer Dan Trainor, to help her achieve her “tness goals for the new year. Its speci“c to body parts each day, so we know what were in for,Ž she said. I try to come in at least “ve days a week, because I really like the intensity of it, and working out with a group that is also just as intense.Ž YouFit in North Port isnt open all the time, but they do have hours to accommodate many schedules „ 5 a.m. to midnight on weekdays. Like most gyms are now doing, YouFit operators do not require an annual contract, and you can maintain your membership on a month-to-month basis. General manager Damon Bishop says that upon joining, members are guided around the gym by one of YouFits coaches, where they are familiarized with all the equipment on the ”oor, and services the gym offers, like “tness assessment and Silver Sneakers, a workout program for those over 65 years of age. In one-on-one sessions, coaches can also help members put together their own specialized 30-minute circuit training program. Bishop said that one of the primary focuses of YouFit is to educate members about the value of safe lifting for overall “tness. Our small group training is a little different, because we show you strength training exercises that you can later use on your own,Ž he said. We teach our members about what strength training does to keep the fat off. And with our app, you can track your workouts, request a trainer and accumulate awards.Ž When choosing the right spot to work out, it helps if the facility offers some different exercise choices. The Englewood YMCA tries to “t that bill, with a wellness center, aquatics (in its Junior Olympicsized pool), a double gymnasium, specialty exercise studios for group classes and healthy livingrelated classes. Since the Y has been around for so long, and is in so many locations around the world, many of its members in Englewood have been in the YMCA family for some time. Even if this wasnt the original place they joined, they are familiar with the brand and its Judeo-Christian principals. And they have a lot of company „ according to the of“cial YMCA website, the organization engages more than nine million youth and 13 million adults each year in the United States alone. Dave Carter, an 80year old YMCA member, described his typical workout at the Englewood location, saying he had been doing it since Christ was a kid.Ž I try to do three to four miles on the treadmill, then I lift weights, and then I hit the heavy bag and the speed bag,Ž Carter said. Im starting to spend more and more time on the treadmill to get a better aerobic workout, and also because I get on there with a couple of buddies and we get to yapping. The people who work here and the people who work out here are just so nice.Ž That camaraderie and love of shared interests is one of the aspects of CrossFit Punta Gorda that its members say they enjoy so much. Owner John Shepard conducts a LongevityŽ class for members who are generally over the age of 60, one of only two such classes at CrossFit locations around the country. Each CrossFit gym is individually owned, and owners are free to use their own discretion for choosing the look, feel and programs used at their facility. Shepards almost “ve-yearold gym focuses on bright, cheery colors and shiny, clean equipment, with an aim of making it a favorite workout spot for “tness enthusiasts from age six to whatever. He said that his Longevity group class includes members who can absolutely do anything and everything he asks of them. The main goal here (in this class) is being able to be independent and active longer,Ž he said. The old saying, If you dont use it, you lose it could not be more accurate. The people in this class “nd that they can do so much more than they ever thought they could.Ž Shepard said he also encourages this particular group to get together at least once a month outside the gym, which results in even more effective workouts in the gym and encouragement between members: Hey, where were you the other morning when we all busting our butts in class?Ž Speaking to the Longevity class after their workout, which many much younger people might not be able to complete, one can hear the sense of accomplishment and pride in their voices. They say they know they are doing something good for their bodies, minds and spirits. Jan Trojanowski and his wife Francois Tibout were introduced to CrossFit Punta Gorda by Trojanowskis son more than two years ago. They have been attending Shepards class ever since. I had never exercised before,Ž he said. I come here two times a week. Its addictive, and I feel 20 years younger.ŽNot giving upThat feeling is one that all enthusiasts are hoping to accomplish, but it can only be done if they not only start an exercise program, but stick to it. Some of the best advice about how to do that comes from the folks in charge of the gyms, like Shepard, who says that its important to “rst clear your participation with your physician and then make the workout a daily part of your lifestyle, setting aside a portion of each day for it. Alix said that the one of the primary keys to “tness success is to be realistic when setting your goals. The biggest thing I see are people who are super motivated and super excited, and start off great, but go too far too soon,Ž he said. It just becomes overwhelming. Its better to go two or three days a week to the gym to start, and then try to make healthy food choices.Ž Trying to keep participants who set those New Years resolutions two months on track is a challenge. Lucas Esquivel, a wellness coach at the Englewood YMCA, said one of the things they encourage members to do to help ensure they keep coming back for workouts is to participate in their 21-Day Challenge.Ž You have to come here 21 consecutive days,Ž he said. That is how long we “gure that it takes to make a habit (of coming to work out.)Ž Above all, its important to remember that being in better physical shape is not only good for your body, its good for your mind and spirit„which in turn, is a bene“t to the people around you. Bishop says that its sometimes OK to be a little sel“sh, when it comes to taking care of yourself. That should be everyones ultimate goal for the new year. There are 168 hours in a week, and we work less than a quarter of that week, then making time for family and other things,Ž he said. When do we make time for us?ŽFATFROM PAGE 1Michelle Rhees, Phyllis Menefee, Jan Trojanowski and Francoise Tibout work out together in the LongevityŽ class at CrossFit Punta Gorda.

A pounded steak is battered and fried, then topped with a cream-based gravy. The chicken-fried steak with sausage gravy served at IHOP, for example, contains 81 grams of fat, and if you decide to add eggs to it and call it breakfast, the fat content is boosted to a whopping 115 grams, making it the single most fattening menu item there. Pecan Pie To make pecan pie, you basically take a load of butter, mix in some corn syrup and pecans, and bake it until it sets. The pecan pie sold by Texasbased Goode Co., for example, contains 23 grams of fat in one slice. Steak Beef, like all other types of meat, involves some fatty cuts and some lean cuts. But even the leanest cuts contain a lot of fat. For example at LongHorn Steakhouse, its leanest cut, the flatiron steak, contains 16 grams of fat in a 7ounce portion. The 8ounce filet mignon contains 25 grams of fat, and the 29 ounce porterhouse tops the charts at 79grams of fat. Fondue Cheese is basically concentrated milk, and contains a very high amount of fat. So needless to say, if you take a bunch of it, melt it in a little pot, and serve it with little cubes of bread, its going to be one of the most fattening foods around. At The Melting Pot, a fondue-based chain found in Sarasota and Fort Myers, one order of its traditional Swiss fondue contains 50 grams of fat. Ribs Ribmeat contains a ton of fat, and people tend to eat more of it because there isnt a whole lot of meat on the bones. So should you decide to make the drive to a Tony Romas in Orlando or South Florida and order a full 1.5 pound rack of St. Louis ribs, which are meatier and fattier than Baby Backs, thatll set you back a whopping 94 grams of fat. The Baby Backs, at a still-excessive 38 grams of fat, seem light in comparison. And we wouldnt advise eating a full 6-piece slab of the beef ribs; those contain a completely absurd 189 grams of fat, not to mention 2,289 calories, making it the most fattening item on the menu. Poutine Oh, poutine. This delicacy from Montreal has found its way into the U.S. in recent years, because on the outside it looks like a pretty all-American food: fries topped with fresh cheese curds and rich brown gravy. This heart attack on a plate is sold by the Canadian chain Harveys, and theyve listed the nutrition info online: one order contains 64 grams of fat. Tuna Melt So lets take a can of tuna, mix in a few tablespoons of mayo, pile it up on a toasted rye bread, then melt three slices of American cheese on top. Now lets do some math: one can of tuna contains about 2 grams of fat, as do two slices of rye. Three tablespoons of mayo contains 30 grams of fat. Three slices of American cheese contains 24 grams of fat. If you want to go gourmet, youll heat it all up in a pan with a tablespoon of butter, which contains 12grams of fat. Add it all up and youve got a sandwich with 70 grams of fat. Carnival Fare Batter and fry anything and youre obviously loading it up with huge amounts of fat. Batter and fry a hot dog or a candy bar and you might just find your pants dont fit the next day. Carnival fare is some of the most fattening food on earth, customized for easy consumption by putting it on a stick. The average corn dog contains about 25 grams of fat, and you know those plate-sized funnel cakes? Those average about 45 grams of fat. Deep fry a Snickers bar and itll set you back about 25 grams of fat. Super-Premium Ice Cream Super-premium ice creams, like those sold by Ben & Jerrys, for example, are the most fattening ones around because they contain so little air and contain a high level of butterfat. For example, half a cup (or 106 grams) of its Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream contains 16 grams of fat, meaning that 15percent of their ice cream is pure butterfat. Cheeseburgers A half-pound patty of 80/20 beef contains 45 grams of fat. Add on a few slices of cheese and a couple strips of bacon and youre reaching astronomical levels of fat. Lets look at the popular chain Cheeburger Cheeburger found on Sanibel Island, for example. It uses a higher ratio of fat in its burgers, closer to 25percent, and a popular seller is the 10-ounce patty, dubbed The Serious. Add American cheese and bacon, and youre pushing 66 grams of fat, 26 of which are saturated (not to mention 1,090 calories and 259 milligrams of cholesterol). Should you decide to go for their infamous pounder, the patty alone contains 69 grams of fat! Sausage If youve ever seen sausage being made, it usually starts with not only a pork shoulder, one of the fattiest cuts on the pig, but also a hefty portion of fatback, or pure fat. One link of Johnsonville bratwurst, for example, weighs 82 grams, and contains 21 grams of fat. That means that this sausage, which is pretty representative of sausage as a whole, is pushing 26percent fat, more fat than most burgers. One 45-gram classic Oscar Mayer weiner, in comparison, contains 9 grams of fat, clocking in at about 20percent. Foie Gras Foie gras is the liver of a duck or goose thats been purposely fattened up, and its rich, creamy, unctuous and insanely decadent. Its also insanely high in fat: a 100 gram, 3.5-ounce portion contains 44 grams of fat, meaning that its a full 44percent fat.

Most of them do not know that the cards were stacked against them and that weight loss is much more complicated than working out and not eating dessert. Years into the obesity epidemic, millions of Americans have tried to lose weight, and millions of them have failed to do so long term. Its so serious now that close to 40 percent of Americans are obese. The average woman in the United States today weighs about 168 pounds, or roughly the same as an average man in 1960. Not that guys waists havent ballooned, too. Men have gained on average nearly 30 pounds since John F. Kennedys inauguration in 1961. From 1976 to 1980, just under 1 in 7 American adults, or 15.1 percent, were obese. Now, despite peoples concerted efforts, obesity is at its highest level ever, with about 40 percent of U.S. adults and 18.5 percent of children, considered obese. This is itself an increase of about 30 percent, just since 2000 when roughly 30 percent of American adults were obese. The U.S., and increasingly the world, is in the grip of a real epidemic „ the seriousness of which is lost in our obsession with diets. One study estimated an additional 65 million obese Americans by 2030, and increased medical costs between $48 billion to $66 billion a year. As an endocrinologist, I study obesity and treat people with obesity every day. Here are some things I see, and some things I see that could begin to address the problem.Costs across the boardObesity, de“ned as a body mass index of at least 30, is about far more than vanity. It impairs quality of life and exacerbates health risks involving many medical conditions in children and adults. Obese people incur more medical costs, live shorter lives and miss more work than their thinner counterparts. The health risks include gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, gout, sleep apnea, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cardiovascular disease and a broad spectrum of cancers, such as pancreatic, liver, breast and kidney cancers. Obesity also leads to metabolic conditions such as hypertension, Type 2 diabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, which has long been overlooked as a life-threatening consequence of poor eating habits. This disease was rare until 1980. The medical costs associated with obesity are enormous „ and growing. One study estimated the annual medical care costs of obesity in the United States in 2008 dollars at $209.7 billion. To put that in perspective, consider that thats almost half the amount of the estimated federal de“cit for “scal year 2018. About 1 in 5 health care dollars are spent to treat obesityrelated illness. The costs are also high to individuals. Compared with normalweight individuals, obese patients spend 46 percent more on inpatient costs, 27 percent more on outpatient care and 80 percent more on prescription drugs.A sickness of American society?Obesitys roots are in American culture, from the stress of the workplace to the onslaught of food advertising, to our tradition of holiday overindulgence. The taste buds of our youth are raised on junk food and sugary treats, habits that follow children into adulthood. American society is structured around productivity and long work hours. This leads to unbalanced lives, unhealthy lifestyles and unhappy people. Stress and lack of sleep can contribute to obesity. For many families struggling between paychecks, the foods that make the most “nancial sense are the processed, packaged, fatty choices serving up the most calories. Meal portions at restaurants have sharply increased in recent decades as well. The percentage of our food budget spent on out-of-home dining climbed to 46 percent in 2006, up 20 percent since 1970. The temptation of unhealthy food greets us on every street corner, in our breakrooms and at our favorite supermarkets. We Americans are eating too much yet we cant seem to reverse it. Why? Some blame the epidemic on the advent of the microwave and the growth of fast food options since the 1970s. Also, our food choices have changed, with food industries mass market fattening foods to children. Americans are more sedentary than we were decades ago. Our lives are tied to computer screens, big and small, in both our jobs and our homes. Our children are now raised on hand-held devices that serve as surrogate playmates in a world where playing ballŽ is more likely to be done via internet connection than the actual playing “eld.Blaming the victim?Many of us invoke willpowerŽ in our “ght against fat, blaming and shaming ourselves and others for not losing weight. While many people have lost weight in the short term, they struggle to break the cycle of food addiction and unhealthy food choices. Yet scientists have learned that this is not about a shortage of willpower but about an abundance of physiological factors that make the body hold onto fat. Patients standing alone with just their willpower and the latest diet to guide them invariably face great dif“culty against a complex disease like obesity. Going it alone may be a barrier to appropriate treatment options, such as behavioral modi“cation counseling, anti-obesity drugs and bariatric surgery. Weight regain is common, as structured diets are hard to follow over the long haul. The body resists long-term calorie restriction by sending signals to our brains that trigger a craving for food, making diets prone to failure. Because of the frustration of failure, many people are simply giving up on slimming down, making obesity an accepted social norm. One study has shown a declining percentage of men and women trying to lose weight since 1988, perhaps due to a lack of motivation after failed efforts.FixesEven so, were making some progress battling this epidemic. Studies show obesity appears to be plateauing in Caucasians, though not in ethnic minorities. But the numbers are already so high, plateauingŽ seems more euphemistic than hopeful. Scienti“c research has shown that the “xes are not about dieting, however. The solutions are complex and will take time and resources. Patients need more support than they are receiving. Clearly, our country needs a greater systematic effort in the realms of public health, the government and industry. For starters, our political leaders should make combating obesity a top priority. Our nation faces many challenges, and the obesity epidemic has fallen to the bottom of a long list of health care problems. Schools could play a role. Students should receive additional education in schools on good eating habits and how to control stress. As someone who sees this devastating illness every day, I believe that health care insurers need to be more willing to pay upfront to manage obesity before it becomes a much more expensive disease to treat. Given the structure of health insurance now, physicians simply cannot spend the time needed with patients to properly communicate and educate. Studies have shown that many insurers exclude treatments for obesity. Each of us needs to become an advocate for a healthier way of life. Adults can start by teaching our youngsters about good dietary habits, by insisting on a better balance in the workplace, and by demanding more accountability from the food and health industries, and our government. Doing that will help ensure a brighter and healthier future for our children.

According to the National Weather Service, Monday is looking to be a rainy day, so dont forget the umbrella. NWS reports that Charlotte County residents can expect showers and possibly a thunderstorm before 2 p.m. with a high temperature nearing 74 degrees. After that, scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected for the remainder of the day with a chance of precipitation at 80 percent. The new rainfall amounts should span between a quarter and half of an inch. Tonight should have scattered showers and thunderstorms before 8 p.m. The partly cloudy evening is forecast to be breezy with low temperatures dropping down to around 48 degrees with a north wind at 11 to 15 mph and gusts as high as 22 mph. The chance of precipitation is expected to be at 30 percent. Mondays thunderstorms should clear up by Tuesday and bring in colder weather for the area. The sunny day is forecast to have a high temperature near 67 degrees with a north wind at 7 to 9 mph. Tuesday night should remain clear with a low around 47 degrees and a north northwest wind at 6 to 8 mph. Tuesdays sunny forecast should continue into Wednesday with a high temperature near 68 and a north northwest wind at 7 to 11 mph. Wednesday night is expected to still be cold with a low temperature around 44 degrees and a north wind at 8 to 11 mph. Thursday should remain sunny with high temperatures nearing 67 degrees and a north northeast wind at 7 to 9 mph. Thursday night is expected to be clear with a low around 46 degrees. According to NWS, Friday should start to warm up compared to the rest of the week with a high near 74 degrees for the sunny day. Friday night is expected to be mostly clear with a low around 53. Going into the weekend, the forecast shows a sunny Saturday with a high near 78 degrees. As of March 9, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported that a patchy bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis continues to persist in Southwest Florida. Background to medium concentrations in 23 samples were collected from Sarasota County and very low to low concentrations in “ve samples were collected from Charlotte County. Fish kills were reported in Sarasota at Caspersen Beach, Lido Beach, Manasota Beach and Venice Beach. Respiratory irritation was reported in Sarasota at Manasota Beach, Nokomis, Venice Beach and Venice North Jetty from March 2 to 8.

He said unless the speed limit is different than the standard speed, there is no requirement for posting.Ž Ignorance of the law is no defense; were supposed to know what it is,Ž Levin said. So if we were merely informing the public with respect to something they should already know, I dont think there is any decline in enforceability if we put the speed limit sign on the street.Ž Agreeing with Levin, following the meeting Davis said ignorance of state laws is not a defense, adding, but to think that everyone is going to research the speed limit is just not going to happen. So for us to throw up a couple signs is probably a better thing to do.Ž Mayor Rachel Keesling questioned if speed limit signs can be installed on a post with an existing sign, including those promoting neighborhood watch organizations. We already have a lot of signs. When we took a lot of the speed limit signs down, it was because we had so many sign posts after sign posts, and it was visual clutter,Ž she said. Levin said hell research if speed limit signs can be included on another post, and if the city can paint the speed limit on the street itself. People get upset with painting of the road in the vicinity of their house,Ž Keesling said. If its a highly traveled area as opposed to a residential area, we may not get complaints. Weve learned to be sensitive.Ž District 5 Councilwoman Nancy Prafke said residents in Burnt Store Isle dont want additional signs. What we have is suf“cient for now.Ž Email: jscholles@sun-herald.comSIGNSFROM PAGE 1Its an area of improvement forever,Ž Harris said. And dont forget, people still like to get their news from the newspaper or their local TV station.Ž Another area of concern to Harris was the use of numbers or letters to designate evacuation zones by the county. Instead, he thought the county needed to be more speci“c, maybe going so far as to naming particular neighborhoods that were subject to evacuation orders. We thought we were pretty good with all the terminology, but not so much. We need to make it simpler,Ž Harris said. Lord focused his comments on sheltering and debris removal. On sheltering, he felt the county should assign staff to speci“c shelters so they were familiar with the facility, and to provide training so they had the ability to ramp up and prepared to open the shelter. He also suggested the county needed to identify post-storm shelter facilities so schools could be opened sooner. Lord found it commendable that the county was using its own crews for debris removal, something that was not common across the state. He also thought the online map the county used to keep residents informed about debris pickup was a great concept. But dont overpromise,Ž he said, adding that situations occur day-to-day that may change pickup schedules. Soto said he had concentrated on the relationship between the county and the electric companies and the information ”ow between them. He said the county needed to ensure information about the status of power restoration ”owed to the cities so they had up-to-date information. Soto also addressed sheltering, adding that a pressing issue for the county was the training of employees to run a shelter, and preparing contingencies for shelter staf“ng. Altogether, however, the three peer reviewers praised the countys response. The county, on the whole, did exceedingly well,Ž Lord said. Soto found the leadership and the preparedness to take action, along with the willingness to include partners in the after-action review commendable. The Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation covered the costs for the three peer reviewers along with those of Craig Fugate, former administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Fugate conducted listening sessions with those involved in the response and wrote the actual after-action report. That report will be delivered by Fugate to the county commission during their afternoon session next Wednesday.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comSARASOTAFROM PAGE 1 more densely populated areas „ has raised concerns about its potential environmental and health impacts. The County Commission, echoing the position of Gov. Rick Scott, also is not in favor of offshore drilling on Floridas coast. U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has stated that Florida was being removed from consideration for any new oil and gas platforms.Economic Development and Social Services Commissioners champion attempts by entities within Charlotte County to secure funding to “ght opioid addiction, including appropriations to fund programs in CARA, the 21st Century Cures Act, or other programs to address the opioid crisis. More than 42,000 Americans died of opioid overdoses in 2016. According to a recent report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the number of opioid related deaths in Florida increased by 35 percent from 2015 to 2016. The county also is asking congressional legislators to monitor efforts to repeal/replace or amend the Affordable Care Act, including the repeal of the excise tax on high-cost health insurance plans, known as the Cadillac tax. In addition, Charlotte backs legislation to prevent federal interference with Floridas medical marijuana program. In 2016, the voters of Florida passed a state constitutional amendment to allow the use of medical marijuana. Despite medical cannabis laws in 44 states „ and the legalization of recreational marijuana in eight states, plus Washington, D.C. „ cannabis is still illegal under federal law. Commissioners advocate to maintain funding levels for the Community Services Block Grant and the Low Income Home Energy Program because of their critical role in the countys goal of helping those who are less fortunate. Furthermore, Charlotte County seeks to advance U.S. Economic Development Administration program grant applications, including potential applications, for improvements to Parkside, Charlotte Harbor and Murdock Village community redevelopment areas, along with the Western Michigan Partnership and other infrastructure projects. The Trump Administration has proposed eliminating the EDA in both of his budget requests since taking of“ce. Commissioners also oppose proposed cuts to non-defense discretionary programs of importance to Charlotte County.Local Government IssuesAnd, “nally, Charlotte supports legislation that requires companies making catalog and internet sales to collect and remit the associated taxes. With limited exceptions, retailers are only required to collect sales tax in states where they have brick-and-mortar stores. Meanwhile, the county opposes legislation that would exempt internet travel brokers (including Expedia, Orbitz and Priceline) from paying taxes on the full room rate paid by the consumer, thereby costing the county the opportunity of collecting the appropriate transient occupancy taxes from visitors to the region. In “scal year 2015, Charlotte County collected nearly $3.8 million in transient occupancy taxes, which is used to support the tourism industry in the region.

The Sun /Monday, March 12, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSSARASOTA „ Its one item that may not be pulled from the Sarasota County commissioners consent agenda Tuesday. Then again, it may be just so commissioners can comment on their commitment to Venice. Listed at the 16th spot on the consent agenda, the item requests that commissioners authorize County Administrator Jonathan Lewis to send another letter to the city of Venice rescinding a letter sent to the city last November. That letter noti“ed the city of the countys intent to terminate the existing parks interlocal agreement rather than letting it automatically renew, setting up a new controversy with the city. That controversy was in”amed by Venice Mayor John Holic, who, according to several county of“cials, mischaracterized the letter as a notice of termination in messages to parents involved in the local youth sports leagues. Those parents showed up in mass at a joint meeting of the county and city commissions on Feb. 28, prepared to voice their displeasure at the countys action. However, County Commission Chairwoman Nancy Detert quickly defused the situation when that agenda item was reached. Saying that she was on the losing end of the vote to send the original letter and accurately predicted what would result, she called for a consensus of her commissioners that they rescind the letter. Consensus quickly came from Commissioners Charles Hines and Alan Maio who asked that an item to rescind the letter be placed on Tuesdays commission agenda. Rescinding that letter will demonstrate the countys willingness to continue to negotiate in good faith with city of“cials on a new parks interlocal agreement. An agreement in principal reached by Lewis and City Manager Ed Lavallee has been reached, and it will serve as the basis for the new agreement. Faced with budgetary pressures, the county is looking to implement its parks master plan that would have the county managing and maintaining a regional parks system, leaving the responsibility for smaller neighborhood or pocket parks to the cities. Both county and city elected of“cials said during the joint meeting that they hoped to see a new agreement soon. Commissioners will meet Tuesday in commission chambers at the Robert L. Anderson Administration Center, 4000 S. Tamiami Trail, Venice. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and is expected to end by noon. Access Sarasota TV will also televise the meeting, and the agenda is available at www.scgov.net by clicking on Meetings and Agendas under the Services A-Z tab.

Also, maybe adhering to the 15 mph speed limit for one hour in the morning and afternoon would permit them to do a safer and better job in the ”ow of traf“c. Maybe they should stand in our shoes and see its not as easy as it looks. Remember, these children are under our protection during these times.George Stawouy Port CharlotteEditor: The gentleman from Deep Creek needs to study some world history. It is estimated that over 200 million people in the 20th century were liquidated (murdered) by their own governments after “rst being disarmed. If the reality doesnt educate you and make you cry, youre not human.Steven Churchill EnglewoodEditor: Now I have heard of everything, spending $402,918 on colored trash cans. Then sending out newsletters asking residents which color they prefer? We need new City Council members with concerns for spending our tax money more wisely. Spending time looking at garbage cans is trivial compared to what is happening in the world today.Barbara Turri Port CharlotteEditor: I live in the Harbor area. Today, there was a brutal accident at Harbor Boulevard and the west frontage road of U.S. 41. It involved a car and a motorcycle, with serious injuries. This intersection may be the highest accident location in the Editor: Rotonda West is a haven for all kinds of wildlife. Thats one of the reasons many of us live here, including myself. Do we really want someone like Charlotte County employee Jason Thompson invited to Rotonda West to teachŽ us about wildlife? Jason Thompson used questionable practices to kill feral hogs as they lay trapped in their cages, some languishing without food or water for days, in Charlotte County parks. It doesnt take a wildlife management expert to know that this is not a humane method of euthanasia. Yet newly elected RWA Board member and head of the Wildlife Subcommittee, Patti Cowin, thinks Jason Thompsons methods were indeed humaneŽ and has even re-invited him to address our community to teachŽ us about wildlife at an upcoming event on Saturday, March 17, called Rotonda West Wildlife. Back by Popular Demand,Ž the announcement blares. Once Jason Thompsons methods were exposed to public scrutiny, Charlotte County immediately changed its policies. Now these animals are killed humanely (at least) „ they are no longer terri“ed and tortured captives in their traps. As a Rotonda West resident, Editor: It appears that gun control is now part of the public conversation thanks to the teenagers who have looked into the barrel of a gun. Lets take one thing off the table. No one is trying to overturn or otherwise nullify the Second Amendment. Arming teachers is not a wise approach. An armed teacher Editor: I was super impressed by the article in the Sunday paper entitled, How I became a gun advocate.Ž Even the most ardent anti-gun person could not help but be moved by Jennifer Malones thoughtful telling of her story and her reasoning behind her need to legally carry a gun. I tried to imagine the terror she felt or how I might react in a similar situation. As with all legal gun owners, she understands the power of a gun and the responsibility of owning one. I hope that all Sun readers, on both sides of the gun debate read the article. It is the best thing I have seen to spark a reasoned and reasonable conversation. And I thank her for putting herself out there by writing the story. And I thank the Sun for publishing it.Shirley Reynolds Englewood OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITORA positive step toward greater public safetyOUR POSITION: Legislature, Scott take signi“cant action on guns, school safety.Only three weeks after the horror of Stoneman Douglas, the Florida Legislature passed and Gov. Rick Scott quickly signed into law broadly based legislation that appropriately restricts access to “rearms while shoring up mental health services and enhancing school safety. The package was a reasoned response to the Parkland tragedy that claimed 17 lives. It was all the more impressive considering opposition lawmakers faced from the National Ri”e Association, which objected to “rearms restrictions; and the Florida Education Association, which objected to provisions that would allow some school staff members to be armed. It did represent a compromise. Also, a relief that the NRAs grip on the Statehouse was loosened, if only to a small degree. In recent years, the Legislature has increasingly moved in the direction of more guns and enhanced rights for gun owners, enacting Stand Your GroundŽ legislation and overriding local efforts to limit “rearms in public spaces. The Legislature has come alarmingly close to passing open carry and college campus carry legislation. This bill shifted the emphasis in a sensible direction. The new law bans the sale of bump stocks,Ž devices that convert semi-automatic weapons into weapons that spray bullets with the press of a “nger. The law raises the minimum age a person can buy a gun from 18 to 21. It requires a three-day waiting period for all gun purchases. It increases funding for mental health services and expands school-based mental health care. It gives police and courts more authority to seize weapons of people deemed mentally un“t. It would prevent come from buying guns. It allows a court to issue risk-protection orders for up to 12 months for those considered a risk to themselves or others. It provides more money for school resource of“cers. It gives local school districts authority to create an armed guardian programŽ that would allow certain school staff to carry weapons, with an appropriate level of training and oversight. Classroom teachers would not be included in the program. Scotts signing ceremony, with parents of Parkland victims, came the day after the House voted 67-50 to pass SB-7026. That followed a close 20-18 vote in the Senate. Both votes were relatively bipartisan, and welcomed. We applaud Republicans who voted against the wishes of the NRA, and Democrats willing to compromise on the question of arming school personnel „ compromises on speci“cs that allowed for the general good. Our appreciation to Rep. Michael Grant, R-Port Charlotte, who voted for it. Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, and Rep. Julio Gonzalez, R-Venice, did not. Steube did not return calls asking for comment. Gonzalez, to his credit, did. Gonzalez said he favored the bump stock ban and the guardian program, but objected strongly to raising the age limit. According to current Florida law, people must be 21 to purchase handguns; this bill would extend the higher age limit to ri”es too. I could not live with the reality of disallowing those individuals the right to own a weapon,Ž Gonzalez said. We not only disagree with this, but are disappointed this single, rigid position prevented him from approving a bill that contained many other positive things. The alleged Parkland ri”eman, Nikolas Cruz, had purchased his own AR-15 semi-automatic weapon. He was 19. And then, both Gonzalez and Steube have their eyes on the congressional seat being vacated by Rep. Tom Rooney, and the Republican base vote in the coming primary. Grant said he was willing to trade the age restrictions and three-day waiting period for the opportunity to institute the marshal program, which he called a last line of defense.Ž We are funding it and we are quantifying what the training has to be,Ž he added. Overall, this was a comprehensive and positive response to the Parkland tragedy. Not everyone was satis“ed. But we do believe that, taken together, these measures will extend more protection to the children who attend our schools. It is a signi“cant, positive step. I am appalled that a man such as Jason Thompson is allowed „ re-invited in fact „ by our Wildlife Subcommittee to advise unsuspecting Rotonda West residents on the proper care and management of our communitys wildlife. Surely the Wildlife Subcommittee can do better than this. Surely the residents of Rotonda West deserve better.Carol Abarbanell Rotonda Westcounty. If not, it is close. I am a PhD professional engineer, who studied traf“c engineering at Northwesterns Traf“c Institute. The solution is simple. Do the same thing on the west side of U.S. 41, that the county has done on the east side of U.S. 41. Speci“cally, install a non-mountable barrier and turn lane to U.S. 41. This will prevent left turns to the north frontage road and left turns to Harbor from the south frontage road.Frank Kudrna Port Charlottecould easily be mistaken for the aggressor by an entering SWAT team. Dont expect a teacher with a handgun to face down an aggressor with an AR-15. Better, I think could be the placement of metal detectors at school entries supervised by trained personnel (perhaps volunteers). Its better to stop guns from entering than trying to stop an aggressor once hes inside. No one wants a gun“ght in a school. An assault ri”e is not something that should be in the hands of the general public unless one could demonstrate a real need. Personally I cant think of one. If someone thinks himself a collectorŽ it should be rendered incapacitated by mechanical or physical means. If he wants to play with it, keep it secured and registered at a speci“c gun range. No internet gun sales. Bump stocks should be illegal, along with fully automatic weapons. Background checks should also be required at gun shows before any sale is completed. Age limits: 21 for handguns, 27 for ri”es, 32 for AR-15s and the like. We have to put a stop this carnage or it will surely happen again. Lawrence Bialla Punta Gorda

The Sun /Monday, March 12, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9 VIEWPOINTWhen Karen Gaffneys mother found out she would be born with Down syndrome, the doctor said Karen probably would not be able to tie her own shoes. Instead, as Karen explained in a moving and eloquent TEDx talk, she has become an accomplished open-water swimmer who has crossed the English Channel in a relay race and completed the swimming leg of the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon. Now she fears the result of a new race „ the one to “nd newer, faster waysŽ to screen for Down syndrome so that more children with the disability can be killed in the womb. Her fears are well-founded. CBS News recently reported that Iceland was on the verge of eliminatingŽ Down syndrome. Unfortunately, there was no great medical breakthrough to report. Iceland, it turns out, is not eliminating Down syndrome; it is eliminating people with Down syndrome. The countrys abortion rate for Down syndrome babies is close to 100 percent „ the highest in the world. Denmark is close behind at 98 percent. In the United States, it is 67 percent „ and Karen fears the rates here will soon reach European levels. Save our lives!Ž she pleads. Sadly, there will always be those who see people with Down syndrome as nothing more than a burden on society. Princeton University professor Robert George recently tweeted out a shocking video in which a bureaucrat from Dutch National Institute for Public Health shows a man with Down syndrome on a blackboard how expensiveŽ he is for society compared to normalŽ people. Do the Dutch, who suffered under „ and in many cases heroically resisted „ Hitlers domination, forget that the “nal solution began with the dehumanization and eugenic killing of the handicapped?Ž George asked. Today, more and more people with Down syndrome are speaking out and demanding recognition of their humanity. Recently, Frank Stephens appeared before the House Appropriations Committee, where he told members of Congress I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living.Ž Noting the abortion rates for Down syndrome babies in Europe, he declared I completely understand that the people pushing this particular “nal solution are saying that people like me should not exist,Ž but pleaded, Lets be America, not Iceland or Denmark. ƒ Lets pursue inclusion, not termination.Ž The message of inclusion is slowly getting through. Last month, baby food maker Gerber named Lucas Warren „ a boy with Down syndrome „ its 2018 Gerber SpokesbabyŽ selecting him out of 140,000 entries for his glowing and giggly smile.Ž Good for Gerber. His smile glowing should be no surprise. A 2011 study by Harvard University researchers found that rather than leading lives of suffering, people with Down syndrome have unusually high rates of happiness. An amazing 99 percent said they are happy with their lives, 97 percent like who they are, and 96 percent like how they look. Overall, the overwhelming majority of people with Down syndrome surveyed indicate they live happy and ful“lling lives,Ž the researchers found. Surveys from Boston Childrens Hospital found that far from being a burden on their families, children with Down syndrome bring enormous joy to their loved ones. Ninety-four percent of siblings expressed feelings of pride about their brother or sister with Down syndrome, and 88 percent said that they were better people because of them. Only 4 percent would trade their sibling in for another, and only 4 percent of parents regretted having their Down syndrome child. It turns out, the researchers concluded, that the experience of Down syndrome is a positive one for most parents, siblings and people with Down syndrome themselves.Ž Lawmakers are taking notice. As The Washington Post reports this week, more states are passing laws prohibiting doctors from performing abortions because of a fetal Down syndrome diagnosis. Indiana, North Dakota, Louisiana and Ohio have passed such laws, with Ohios Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination ActŽ scheduled take effect later this month. Utah is currently debating a similar law. The bills sponsor, Republican state Rep. Karianne Lisonbee, says it is Utahs message to the world is that we will not tolerate discrimination.Ž Naturally, pro-abortion absolutists are suing to block these laws (successfully in the case of Indiana). It is simply intolerable that so many joyous lives are being snuffed out. All lives are a gift from God,Ž Gaffney says. To me, that means that all lives matter, even if you will be born with an extra chromosome.Ž Marc A. Thiessen is a Washington Post columnist.Babies with Down syndrome have right to live Marc A. Thiessen There is a new push in anti-abortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable „ and wrong. This is a dif“cult subject to discuss because there are so many parents who have „ and cherish „ a child with Down syndrome. Many people with Down syndrome live happy and ful“lled lives. The new Gerber baby with Down syndrome is awfully cute. I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to do the testing for Down syndrome. Back then it was amniocentesis, performed after 15 weeks; now, Chorionic villus sampling can provide a conclusive determination as early as nine weeks. I can say without hesitation that, tragic as it would have felt and ghastly as a second-trimester abortion would have been, I would have terminated those pregnancies had the testing come back positive. I would have grieved the loss and moved on. And I am not alone. More than two-thirds of American women choose abortion in such circumstances. Isnt that the point „ or at least inherent in the point „ of prenatal testing in the “rst place? If you believe that abortion is equivalent to murder, the taking of a human life, then of course you would make a different choice. But that is not my belief, and the Supreme Court has af“rmed my freedom to have that belief and act accordingly. I respect „ I admire „ families that knowingly welcome a baby with Down syndrome into their lives. Certainly, to be a parent is to take the risks that accompany parenting; you love your child for who she is, not what you want her to be. But accepting that essential truth is different from compelling a woman to give birth to a child whose intellectual capacity will be impaired, whose life choices will be limited, whose health may be compromised. Most children with Down syndrome have mild to moderate cognitive impairment, meaning an IQ between 55 and 70 (mild) or between 35 and 55 (moderate). This means limited capacity for independent living and “nancial security; it is a life-altering event for the entire family. Im going to be blunt here: That was not the child I wanted. That was not the choice I would make. You can call me sel“sh, or worse, but I am in good company. The evidence is clear that most women confronted with the same unhappy alternative would make the same decision. Which brings us to the Supreme Court. North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana and Louisiana have passed legislation to prohibit doctors from performing abortions if the sole reason is because of a diagnosis of Down syndrome; the Utah Legislature is debating such a bill. These laws are ”atly inconsistent with the Supreme Courts ruling in Roe v. Wade, reaf“rmed in 1992, that it is a constitutional liberty of the woman to have some freedom to terminate her pregnancy.Ž Of the woman As U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt concluded in striking down the Indiana law last September, the high courts determination leaves no room for the state to examine, let alone prohibit, the basis or bases upon which a woman makes her choice.Ž Think about it. Can it be that women have more constitutional freedom to choose to terminate their pregnancies on a whim than for the reason that the fetus has Down syndrome? And, to the question of enforceability, who is going to police the decision-making? Doctors are now supposed to turn in their patients „ patients to whom they owe a duty of con“dentiality „ for making a decision of which the state disapproves? In an argument worthy of The Handmaids Tale,Ž the state of Indiana suggests precisely that scenario. The right to abortion, its lawyer argued before a federal appeals court last month, protects only the binaryŽ decision about whether or not to bear a child „ not which child you must carry to term once you choose to become pregnant. In other words, though he didnt put it in these exact words, the state can hijack your body. Technological advances in prenatal testing pose dif“cult moral choices about what, if any, genetic anomaly or defect justi“es an abortion. Near-sightedness? Being short? There are creepy, eugenic aspects of the new technology that call for vigorous public debate. But in the end, the Constitution mandates „ and a proper understanding of the rights of the individual against those of the state underscores „ that these excruciating choices be left to individual women, not to government of“cials who believe they know best.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. „ Researchers are on a critical mission in the heart of Broward County „ bashing in the brains of iguanas in an attempt to eliminate the reptiles that have overtaken South Florida. A 15-member team from the University of Florida is using a tool called a captive bolt gun that sends a bolt into the brain, similar to what is used in the livestock industry. Theyre also smashing the creatures heads against solid objects, including a truck and boat theyre using to track them down. Most of what were doing is blunt force trauma,Ž said Jenny Ketterlin, a wildlife biologist and research coordinator with UF. Hitting their head very hard against a solid object.Ž Destroying their brains quickly is the most humane way to kill them, she said. Decapitating the animals without anesthesia would kill them but not be considered humane. Their work is part of a $63,000 research project, contracted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, designed to “nd the best way to remove iguanas and then offer tips to homeowners on how to purge the pests from their yards. Iguanas are an invasive species in Florida and can be a nuisance to homeowners or impact native wildlife,Ž said Carli Segelson, a wildlife agency spokeswoman. Iguanas can feed on native plants and wildlife and dig into areas that may cause erosion.Ž The research teams methods may sound gruesome but are in keeping with the states anti-cruelty laws, Ketterlin said. So far, working in teams of two, the researchers have captured and killed 249 iguanas along a canal in Davie that runs parallel to Grif“n Road. They sneak up on the creatures at night while theyre asleep, then kill them on the spot. But some manage to get away. We are using ”ashlights to “nd them,Ž Ketterlin said. They are slow at “rst. If theyre in a tree and wake up, theyll jump into the canal or jump onto the ground and run off.Ž Once they are captured and killed, the iguanas are placed in bags and brought back to the lab, where they are weighed and measured, Ketterlin said. They are then taken to a land“ll in Homestead that accepts animal carcasses. The team, based at the Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center in Davie, is also placing traps in county parks and using cherry tomatoes and watermelon as bait. But so far, the traps have only snared raccoons. The three-month research project will continue through May, Ketterlin said. Dr. Susan Kelleher, a Deer“eld Beach vet who treats exotic pets, argued the head-bashing method is cruel. She says theres a kinder way to send them to their deaths „ sedate them and then euthanize them. Davie resident Eric Swalley was unfazed by the use of force. I like all creatures but they are not in their native environment,Ž he said. Its a horrible thing we need to combat and try to get a handle on. Its a biological nightmare.Ž Gary Fishman, a Boynton Beach resident, says hes killed more than 100 iguanas with a pellet gun to protect his landscaping. The iguana does not belong here,Ž he said. They need to be annihilated. They cant be relocated. So they must be destroyed.Ž Yet even Fishman said the idea of bashing in their heads sounds like torture. The pellet gun is more humane, in my opinion.ŽTo combat iguana problem, researchers bash in reptiles headsBy SUSANNAH BRYANSUN SENTINELCops: Dad killed girlfriend, baby girl in Florida forestOCALA, Fla. (AP) „ Authorities believe a 27-year-old Minnesota man killed his girlfriend and their baby in a Florida forest before turning the gun on himself. Kevin Farias survived and is in critical condition Sunday. The Marion County Sheriffs Of“ce got the call Saturday morning after a motorist found Farias and 32-yearold Jessica Johnson of Wisconsin, and their 1-year-old daughter, lying in the middle of a remote clay road in the Ocala National Forest. The Ocala Star-Banner reports deputies may have also found the familys car. No other details were released.Is Florida on track for a record year of manatee deaths?MIAMI (AP) „ A watchdog groups say Florida is on pace for another record year for manatee deaths. So far, 166 manatees have died statewide through March 2. Cold spells are to blame for 51 deaths. The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility Executive Director Jeff Ruch says Florida manatees are one big freeze away from an ecological disaster. Red tide and boating deaths are another concern as manatees seeking warm waters often get stuck in residential canals. Floridas annual manatee counts have more than doubled in the past 20 years, to more than 6,600. The federal government reclassi“ed them from endangered to threatened. Florida Today reports that a researcher at Florida Atlantic University is working on alarm that could alert manatees of an approaching boat, possibly reducing deaths. In 2017, 538 manatees died compared with 472 manatee deaths in 2016.Florida Gov. Scott to sign voucher & college aid billsTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) „ Florida Gov. Rick Scott is going to sign a bill creating the nations “rst ever private school voucher program for bullied students. Scott also plans to approve a bill that revamps Floridas universities and colleges and includes a signi“cant boost in “nancial aid provided to the states top performing high school graduates. Scotts of“ce announced that the Republican governor will sign both bills on Sunday. The voucher program is included in a sweeping education bill that also includes a requirement that all Florida schools must display the words In God We Trust.Ž The measure (HB 7055) creates a program where students who are victims of bullying and other types of violence can move to a different public school or receive a private school voucher under the Hope Scholarship program.Human remains found in yard of missing Disney workerORLANDO, Fla. (AP) „ Authorities have uncovered human r emains in the backyard of a Disney worker who has been missing since 2015. Of“cials went to check on Michael Shaver, who worked as a monorail mechanic, at his central Florida home on Feb. 16. His 35-year-old wife Laurie Shaver said she hadnt heard from him since 2015 and allowed investigators to search the home. Lake County Sheriffs deputies noticed what seemed like new concrete near a “re pit in the backyard. They asked to bring in a cadaver dog but she refused. They returned with a warrant and dug up an arm bone Friday. The Orlando Sentinel reports they found more remains over the weekend along with some articles of clothing. His sister Stacie Shaver said they didnt call authorities because they thought they could “nd him on their own.Florida Legislature poised to ok nearly $89 billion budgetTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) „ Florida legislators are poised to approve a nearly $89 billion budget and end their annual session. The Florida Legislature is scheduled to meet Sunday where lawmakers are expected to approve a new budget as well as a tax cut package. Legislators extended their session because they were unable to “nish work on the budget in time. Florida has a 72-hour cooling off periodŽ to make sure everyone can read the budget before the “nal vote. The 60-day session was supposed to end on Friday. Legislators got bogged down during budget negotiations while they spent hours debating and working on a comprehensive gun and school safety bill.

LOCAL SPORTS PUNTA GORDA „ The Charlotte High School girls track team won as many events as one North Port athlete, but was still able to cruise to victory. Meanwhile, Port Charlottes boys showed they are a lot more than Tyreece Luther and John Perez, as they were able to hold off Manatee and win at the Charlotte Invitational Track & Field meet at Charlotte High School. Charlottes girls won just three events, with Eunice Noel winning the 100and 300-meter hurdles and placing third in the long jump, and the 4x100-meter relay team winning the other, as their 151.5 points easily outdid second-place Lakewood Ranch with 107.5 as they loaded the results with point-scoring efforts all the way down the line. Jerry Voss said the winning margin wasnt as important as the way his team dropped time in the track events and improved distances in the “eld. We placed everybody and did well, our times were decent and it was a good meet. Our times keep coming down and thats what were looking for in meets like this,Ž Voss said. North Port was third with 103 points, much of it topheavy in the “eld events, with Alexis Francavilla winning the long jump, triple jump and shot put and placing second in the 100 meters, and Carly Lovett won the high jump. Emani Jefferson was second in the high jump and long jump. Port Charlottes girls were “fth in the eight-team meet with 81 points and got a great effort from Isabella Reyes, who won the 800 meters, Sariah Dempaire who was second in the shot put and discus, and from Kristen Locker, who was second in the triple jump. Lemon Bay was seventh, but got consolation with Maddison Welch winning the 1600 meters. For the boys, Luther was the big star for the Pirates with three victories in the long jump, triple jump and 100 meters, while Nicolas Torres won the 110-meter hurdles, Jayden Edwards won the 800, and Perez won the 3200 and was runner-up in the 1600. Port Charlottes 132 points were enough to hold off Manatee, which had 122. Luther said its been the coaching that has helped the Pirates in the early going. Weve been doing pretty well, the coaches have done a great job coaching us,Ž Luther said. Theyre helping me with my techniques and if I can master them, Ill do good in the future.Ž Port Charlotte coach Quintell Perkins said while track tends to be an individual sport, the idea is to win the meet. We had enough talent sprinkled throughout the whole team and it allowed us to win. We have young kids starting to chip in and shave times and “eld kids who are closing the gap,Ž Perkins said. As long as they continue to chop wood, well be okay.Ž Charlotte was fourth with 84.5 points, with its lone win in the 4x100 relay. Andrew Grace took second in the 200 while Savorion Warren was second in the 100 meters to add to their relay wins. Dustyn Hall was second in the shot put to highlight the “eld events. North Port was sixth with 61 points, with Jason Phanord winning the high jump and Daniel Gonzalez winning the discus. Both also took third in “eld as well. The Bobcats also won the 4x800 meter relay and placed third in the 4x400. Lemon Bay was last with 34 points, with Dillon Brady serving as their high point with second in the high jump and long jump.CHARLOTTE INVITATIONALBoys „ Team results PORT CHARLOTTE 132, MANATEE 122, LAKEWOOD RANCH 86.5, CHARLOTTE 84.5, PALMETTO RIDGE 65, NORTH PORT 61, VENICE 56, LEMON BAY 34 Individual results: High Jump: 1.

Page 14 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 12, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSBasic training injury kept man out of D-DayJim Brand of Punta Gorda served as officer during end of World War IIJim Brand, of Ventura Lakes mobile home park south of Punta Gorda, developed a hernia in basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia, during World War II and missed the D-Day invasion. I got a hernia and they threw me in a ward with nothing but a bunch of guys with hernias,Ž the 92-year-old recalled. When I got out of the hospital, all in my group had gone to D-Day. After basic I was sent to school to be a tank engine mechanic,Ž Brand said. Then three of us were called into the company headquarters and asked if we wanted to go to Of“cers Candidate School. I said, yes. I was sent to Aberdeen Proving Grounds to OCS.Ž From there, he took a train to California. A new liberty ship took him from Oakland to Manila in the Philippines. The war ended while we were still on the ship going over,Ž Brand said. Initially, we were supposed to be part of the invasion force going into Japan.Ž He and his out“t never got further east than the Philippines. They became part of an operation that turned used Jeeps and trucks into civilian vehicles for personal use. I was put in charge of a salvage operation in Manila. I was responsible for repairing and selling hundreds of military vehicles that ringed the city,Ž he explained. Fortunately I had two master sergeants who knew what was going on. I was part of the 618th Ordinance Maintenance Battalion. It was our job to “nd and deliver broken-down military vehicles which we located all over the island to a repair out“t. Wed haul them back to Manila to be worked on. The Philippines were in dire need of transportation. For $300 they could buy a non-working Jeep. If they paid $750, they could get a Jeep that may or may not work. If they paid $1,000 they got a Jeep that ran. Theyd take a Jeep, cut it in half, lengthen it, install additional seats and turn it into a bus. The bus would be painted garish colors and a canvas top would be added. We decided one day to take an amphibious Jeep out on the Manila Waterway for cruise. This is a Jeep that had a boat-like bottom. We got out on the waterway and pretty soon someone said, Hey, theres water coming in on the ”oor. We whipped it around and barely made it back to shore before it sank.Ž The next time Brand and his buddies went sailing they upgraded to an Army DAKW „ an amphibious 2 ton truck. The DAKW worked great. They spent many a weekend sailing the waterway on their off time. Brands best buddy in high school ended up stationed aboard a tugboat a short distance from him at Subic Bay. He was one of the of“cers aboard the tug. We heard about a group of native people who lived up in the mountains outside Manila that needed medical help,Ž Brand recalled. These people were called the Igorot. We took a Jeep and an interpreter and headed into the mountains with medical supplies. We found the people who wore nothing but loin cloths. Many of them had huge sores on their legs. They were grateful for the medicine we brought them. We made two trips into the hills to bring them medicine.Ž During the months Brand spent in the Army at the close of the war, he watched Manila being rebuilt by Allied forces. The capital city had been demolished by the “ghting during the Second World War. We watched Manila come back to life. They started by rebuilding of the bridges. They were trying to get the civilians back on their feet again. A bakery appeared and pretty soon an ice cream shop opened and then there was a movie theater. This was all an eye opener for 19-year-old kid like me,Ž Band said When he returned to San Francisco in 1946 from what had been the war in the Paci“c, his father ”ew from Michigan to meet him. With the help of the G.I. Bill, Brand graduated from Michigan State University and went to work in Ford Motor Companys Tractor Division for a couple of years. Then he, his wife, and his father purchased a 300-acre dairy farm they ran for 14 years. He spent the next few years as the service manager for a tractor dealer. Finally, Brand was the program director for the heavy equipment repair department at Ferris State College in Michigan. In 1986 he and his wife, Merrelyn, retired. They bought a motor home and started touring the country. Thirty-two years ago, we came to Punta Gorda in our motor home,Ž he said. The couple has four children: Kristy, Kim, Shari and Jay.

OUR TOWN: TODAYS WOMAN MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2018 INSIDE: CLASSIFIEDSDonna Barrett sits behind a big desk in an expansive, air-conditioned of“ce. She has a job whose responsibilities match the of“ce. She is the executive of“cer of the Charlotte DeSoto Building Industry Association, which advocates, educates and supports members, clients and stakeholders in the construction industry. She has earned all of it. Donna Barrett is a loving wife and mother in a blended family. She lives in Port Charlotte, where she is active in her church and the community, especially the Bandits youth football program. She deserves all of that. Barrett is 43. She has a work life, a family life, and a spiritual life „ all in Charlotte County. If ever there was a story „ a success story, to be honest „ intertwined with Charlotte, its Barretts. This is my home,Ž she said. A short explanation for a long journey. It started in Queens, New York, where she grew up. It included an initial foray here as a reluctant 18-yearold; a few years in Texas, where she was a single mom working and raising her son, Matthew; and then back here, where it all came together. Her parents had retired to Port Charlotte before Barratt “rst came here. I was going to stay in New York,Ž By RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT LeanneELYCOLUMNISTSince we started Hot Melt last year, weve had a few questions (understandably) that I want to address, especially because this is the information that runs rampant in the health space that needs to be squelched once and for all. The “rst is that its unhealthy „ and to that, I say solidly that no, it is not. But it can be „ especially if youre on Pinterest pinning a bunch of fatty keto recipes that only address ketosis and not the nutrition you absolutely still need, regardless. Second is that putting your body into ketosis isnt naturalŽ and it is bad for you. All ketosis is, is your bodys way of letting you know its starting to use fat for its primary source of fuel, not sugar. Its a sign, not a medical crisis. Ketoacidosis on the other hand, is a true medical issue and involves symptoms like shortness of breath, abdominal pain and more „ completely different than ketosis. Another myth (and again, Ive seen this perpetuated on Pinterest) is you can pretty much eat any fat you want, as long as youre choosing fat over other macronutrients. So not true! Your body still needs nutrients. And while bacon, butter and cheese are certainly a part of the keto diet, its not all of it and woe to those who go that route. And lastly, youve heard this one, Im sure „ your brain needs glucose to operate. Where does glucose come from? Carbs! But heres why you dont need carbs to make that happen. Theres a process called gluconeogenesis, which means you convert protein to glucose and that is what feeds your brain. As a matter of fact, there is science that supports that this is superior fuel for your brain. Its a matter of adapting to running on fat vs sugar is all „ its just getting there that can be problematic. The carb ”uŽ is a symptom of someone becoming fat adapted and brain fog might be one of those symptoms. But the good news is its temporary „ once adapted, people who have done it will tell you theyve never had more clarity, dropped weight effortlessly and feel fantastic. I hope that helps you understand a little bit more about this keto diet stuff. As a nutritionist, Ive seen it all (hey, Ive been doing this for 25 years) so for me, the biggest sticking point of course is the nutrition side of things. Getting those nutrients in is critical in the short run and in the long run. We developed our own nutrient-rich Keto vs. ketoacidosis explained Name: Toby Lynn Q: Degrees: A: I originally wanted to be a jeweler and attended USGSI to study diamonds, precious stones etc. Other than that I would sum it up to; the School of Hard Knocks. I earned my Mortgage Planning Specialist designation a dozen years ago. Q: Occupation: A: Branch Manager and Mortgage Loan Of“cer Q: How many years in Charlotte/ Sarasota County: A: I have owned my home since 1999. Moved full time in 2013. Q: Hobbies: A: I take Latin dance classes regularly. Particularly enjoy Bachata, but also Salsa, Merengue, cha-cha. I also love to travel and have had the luxury to travel many places around the world. Q: What do you like best about your job: A: The creative process it can require to best help a home buyer to buy, or an existing home owner to re“nance or buy an additional property. Its continually a challenge. Whether its the borrowers situation itself, program changes, or circumstances having changed. I love the feeling of winning, knowing its a win that actually has helped someone achieve a goal, a dream, an improvement in their life somehow. Q: What is the greatest lesson you have learned? A: Never to be quick to judge someone, or their circumstances. Q: What other interesting or unusual jobs have you had? A: Ive been in the mortgage business 30+ years now. My “rst career life was in “ne jewelry. I had a great job that sent me off with millions for a buying budget, marketing solutions, travel and working with great people. My high interest in real estate investment eventually caused me to make the move into the mortgage industry, where I remain. Q: What is one important trait every leader should have? A: A roadmap of the plan and the vision to lead to that position. Q: Have you had a personal or business mentor? A : Oh yes, Ive had several, some paid coaches, some not, all contributing pieces to my personal and business success. My “rst one decades ago taught me you always have to have a backup plan ready. On the personal side another taught me to be a good tipper (!), its only an extra dollar or two. Make their day.Ž Q: How do you de“ne success? A. In my business I have worked with 30 years of people who would be de“ned as successful from a “nancial standpoint, but have been miserable in life. I have learned from them true success is within. Its not how much $ you make, but your level of happiness and satisfaction you have within. That could include wanting to make more money, but also family, lifestyle, physical condition, etc. Q: What is your most proud SPOTLIGHTToby Lynn, Branch Manager and Mortgage Loan Officer at The Perfect Mortgage Solution TOBY LYNN The “rst-ever Easter Dog Paw-rade for Dontes Den, an organization that provides a loving home, shelter and care for dogs who, for any number of reasons, can no longer live at home, will be Saturday, March 24.

Page 16 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 12, 2018 OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN 2 In the 14 years that elapsed between her debut feature, the Oscarwinning Monster,Ž and her blockbuster second “lm, Wonder Woman,Ž Patty Jenkins kept her skills sharp by directing episodes of The Killing,Ž EntourageŽ and Arrested Development.Ž Jenkins is hardly alone in following this path. Some of the most distinctive and acclaimed female “lmmakers of the last 25 years „ Jane Campion, Mary Harron, Allison Anders, Nicole Holofcener among them „ have turned to television for opportunities not readily available in the feature “lm world. Writer-director Kimberly Peirce struck gold with her “rst feature, Boys Dont Cry,Ž whose lead actress, Hilary Swank, also won an Academy Award. But it took her nine years to make her follow-up, the Iraq war drama StopLoss,Ž a commercial disappointment. People would say to me, Why dont you make more movies? You should never ask a woman why she hasnt made more movies, any more than you should ask a person of color why theyre not doing certain things that are inherently more dif“cult for people of color to do,Ž says Peirce. What you need to ask is, Why are these competent, brilliant people being stopped in their tracks? The systemic obstacles and the systemic discrimination against women are horrifying.Ž Having risen in New Yorks indie “lm community, she was frustrated by studio meddling and the way that the best material and the best screenwriters inevitably went to male directors. There was a subtle, kind of putting down of where women were,Ž she says. If you did get onto a set with a halfway decent story, the level of interference was so crazy. Itd be like, You sit down to dinner, and somebody takes your food away. In retrospect, the interference had solely to do with my gender.Ž Peirce also directed Carrie,Ž a remake of the horror classic released in 2013, but has since focused on television, directing shows including Six,Ž I Love Dick,Ž American CrimeŽ and Halt and Catch Fire.Ž She says the medium offers a chance to stay current with technology, work with different casts and crews, amass more on-set experience quickly „ and even get paid for it, unlike in features, where directors often arent compensated during the protracted development process. After her debut picture, Girl“ght,Ž took the Sundance Film Festival by storm in 2000, Karyn Kusama directed two underperforming, female-centered genre movies, Eon FluxŽ (2005) and Jennifers BodyŽ (2009), that were hampered by studio meddling. For female “lmmakers,Žthe expectation is only that you hit three home runs in a row,Ž says Kusama. Failure isnt even quite perceived as failure for male “lmmakers. I dont see myself as a quote woman “lmmaker, so much as I see myself as a “lmmaker. So it didnt occur to me until later in the game: why there was so much crowing about the failure of Eon Flux. It really took me a second to come to the disheartening conclusion that being female is a component of that animus.Ž But a few years ago, Kusama broke into TV and has directed episodes of Billions,Ž Casual,Ž The Man in the High CastleŽ and Halt and Catch Fire.Ž On a practical level, working in television, where the budgets are often more generous than the indie “lm world, is also appealing. A lot of times, you get more tools per hour in TV,Ž says the “lmmaker, whose micro-budget feature The Invitation,Ž was released to positive reviews in 2016. Mimi Leder didnt earn her stripes in the indie world „ she got her start in TV, working on shows including L.A. LawŽ and China BeachŽ before winning an Emmy for her groundbreaking work on ER.Ž By the late 90s, she was directing big studio releases like The PeacemakerŽ and Deep Impact,Ž the latter of which set what was then a record for highest opening weekend box of“ce for a “lm directed by a woman. Then came Pay It Forward,Ž a critical and commercial disappointment, and she couldnt get hired on another movie. When a woman makes a movie that is not successful, she goes to movie jail,Ž Leder says. Women are constantly having to prove ourselves over and over again. No matter how many Emmys you win or have been nominated for.Ž Leder has continued to thrive in television, most recently earning rapturous praise for her work on HBOs The Leftovers.Ž She was also an executive producer on the series, which she calls a life-changing experience,Ž and she has made a point of bringing more women into the fold. Despite the obstacles theyve faced, Leder, Peirce and Kusama have fared better than most women in Hollywood. A recent report by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative found that 84 percent of female directors made just one “lm „ the one and doneŽ phenomenon „ and that men were almost twice as likely to helm a second feature. Ironically, for many of these women, their TV work is getting them noticed once again by the “lm world. Leder is in post-production on On the Basis of Sex,Ž a biopic about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Kusama just wrapped Destroyer,Ž a crime thriller starring Nicole Kidman. And it was recently announced that Peirce would direct This Is Jane,Ž a factbased drama about an underground abortion service, for Amazon. Says Kusama: Part of why I decided to take a break from studio “lmmaking was that I need the world to catch up with me a bit. Constantly having to defend my creative honor was getting tiresome.Ž The world „ or at least Hollywood „ may “nally be catching up.Limited options for female film directorsBy MEREDITH BLAKELOS ANGELES TIMESSome have turned to the small screen, where choice and demand are more plentiful AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 11, le photo, Gal Gadot, left, and Patty Jenkins, winners of the award for best action movie for Wonder WomanŽ, pose in the press room at the 23rd annual Critics Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif.

The Vatican published a decree Saturday in which Francis declared that the Mary Mother of the ChurchŽ feast would be celebrated on the Monday following Pentecost. This year, it falls on May 21. The decree said Francis wanted the devotion to encourage the growth of the maternal sense of the Church in the pastors, religious and faithful, as well as a growth of genuine Marian piety.Ž Historys “rst Latin American pope is particularly devoted to Marian piety and frequently refers to the church as mother.Ž In 2016, Francis set another feast day for another key woman in Christs life, declaring July 22 as the feast of St. Mary Magdalene.Pope declares new feast day devoted to the Virgin Mary LOSSERVATORE ROMANO/ANSA VIA APPope Francis caresses a baby during an audience with health workers, in the Paul VI hall at the Vatican, Saturday, March 3.

Eventually, she was promoted to buyer for the 40-store outlet division, and she spent from 2000 to 2005 in Texas, working and raising her son, Matthew, now 19. But something happened. Four days after Hurricane Charley, my grandmother passed away,Ž Barrett recalled. I realized that life is too short. I was raising my son on my own, having a great life in Texas. But he had a life without his grandparents. So, I made a decision to move back.

She wound up landing a job as executive director of the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, which she held from 2008 to 2013. That preceded the job she has now. Donna Barrett has brought her quiet strength to steer the ship called the Charlotte DeSoto Building Industry Association,Ž said board member Wendy Atkinson. All of the leaders within our organization are shining brighter on a local, state and national level because of her behindthe-scene efforts.Ž Donna met Mike Barrett, and they got married 11 years ago.

The local branch has awarded scholarships to over 70 different women since 1977. The inaugural grant was named for the “rst branch president, Penny Penner.

Key ingredients penetrate the skin within minutes to relieve joint arthritis pain. Users report signi“ cant immediate relief.By Robert Ward Associated Health Press BOSTON … Innovus Pharmaceuticals has introduced a new arthritis pain relief treatment that works in minutes. Sold under the brand name Apeaz’ the new pain relief cream numbs the nerves right below the skin. When applied to an arthritic joint, or a painful area on the body, it delivers immediate relief that lasts for hours and hours. The powerful painkilling effect is created by the creams active ingredients, three special medical compounds. Anesthetics are used in hospitals during surgery. They block nerve signals from the brain so that patients dont feel pain and they work fast. The anesthetic found in Apeaz’ is the strongest available without a prescription. The cream form allows users to directly target their area of pain. It works where it is applied. The company says this is why the product is so effective and fast acting. Users can expect to start feeling relief immediately after applying,Ž explains Dr. Bassam Damaj, President of Innovus Pharmaceuticals. There will be a pleasant warming sensation that is followed by a cool, soothing one. This is how you know that the active ingredients have reached the affected joint and tissue.ŽWorks In MinutesFor arthritis suffers, Apeaz’ offers impressive advantages over traditional medications. The most obvious is how quickly it relieves pain discomfort. The cream contains the maximum approved OTC dose of a top anesthetic, which penetrates the skin in a matter of minutes to numb the area thats in pain. This relief lasts for several hours. Published pre-clinical animal studies have shown that the ingredients in Apeaz’ can also prevent further bone and cartilage destruction. There are also no negative side effects like from oral medication. Apeaz’ delivers its ingredients through the skin. Oral medications are absorbed in the digestive tract. Overtime, the chemicals in pills can tear the delicate lining of the stomach, causing ulcers and bleeding. When compared to other arthritis medications, Apeaz’ is a fraction of the cost. At less than $2 a day, the cream quickly is becoming a household name. Those with terrible arthritis in their hands and fingers, love how easy Apeaz’ is to open. The jar fits in the palm of the hand, which makes it much easier to use. Instant Pain Relief Without a PrescriptionMany Apeaz’ users report significant improvements in daily aches and pain. Many more report increased flexibility and less stiffness. They are moving with less pain for the first time in years, like Henry Esber, an early user of Apeaz’ Ive tried more pills than I can count. Ive also had a handful of cortisone shots. Nothing is as effective as this product. With Apeaz’, I get relief right away. I rub a little on my hands. It keeps the pain away. It also prevents the pain from getting really bad. Its completely changed my life.Ž How It WorksApeaz’ contains the highest, non-prescription OTC dose of a medical compound that fights pain on contact. When applied to the skin it goes to work within minutes by penetrating right to the source of your pain, numbing the nerve endings.  This is why Apeaz’ is so effective for people with arthritis pain. It reduces pain while adding an additional potential layer of joint support,Ž explains Damaj.A New Way to Treat PainAlthough Dr. Damaj and his team say that their cream is the fastest and most effective way to relieve arthritis pain, they believe there is still a reason to take joint pills. The most effective are those which help to further lubricate, strengthen and support the joints. Thats why every container of Apeaz’ comes with ArthriVarx’, a breakthrough supplement thats taking on joint support in an entirely new way. ArthriVarx’ works on your joints, making it the perfect companion to Apeaz’ ArthriVarx’ contains special compounds published to lubricate the joints and connective tissues that surrounds them. With daily use, they improve joint health and can give an extra cushion,Ž explains Dr. Damaj. When combined with Apeaz’ it becomes the perfect system to tackle arthritis. While the anesthetic component of Apeaz’ is working on the outside, relieving pain on contact, ArthriVarx’ is working on the inside, adding cushioning to the jointsŽA Powerful Combination For Arthritis and Joint PainWith daily use, Apeaz’ plus ArthriVarx’ helps users live a more vital, pain free life without any of the negative side effects or interactions associated with oral drugs. By delivering fast, long-lasting, and targeted relief from joint pain and supporting long-term joint health, Apeaz’ and ArthriVarx’ is the newest, most effective way to tackle your arthritis pain. You can now enjoy an entirely new level of comfort thats both safe and affordable. It is also extremely effective, especially if nothing else has worked well for you.

I grew up as my fathers oldest son, so learned how to “sh, use woodworking equipment, any of the tools in his cabinet makers shop I had to learn. That has made me very self-suf“cient, which has turned out to be a good thing!SPOTLIGHTFROM PAGE 1 As more women feel emboldened to raise their voices and “ght for workplace issues that matter most to them „ from equal pay and development opportunities to sexual harassment on the job „ its important to both re”ect on progress made and recognize there are many more milestones to be attained. Only one-third of women feel they have as many or more opportunities than men at their current companies, according to a recent survey by Randstad US. And, 58 percent cited the lack of promotion to leadership roles as a top reason for gender inequality in the workplace. If you are a working woman looking to advance, expand your responsibilities, or launch a new career, here are four tips that can help you achieve success. € Pursue mentorship opportunities. Having a mentor can create lasting value when working to become a leader. Mentors can be your support system, whether its providing encouragement to pursue growth opportunities or identifying blind spots and areas of improvement. Coming from experience, mentors can bring a wealth of knowledge to move you in the right direction. € Embrace failures. In your professional life, there will be successes and failures, good days and bad. Dont allow one negative interaction or misstep to ruin your day, and dont let fear prevent you from moving forward. However, you should brie”y re”ect to learn from failures: What made you miss that project deadline? Why did a presentation fall ”at? Use these moments as opportunities to develop shortand long-term goals to overcome any potential barriers. € Step outside your comfort zone. Taking risks can lead to great rewards. While certain scenarios, such as initiating a conversation with your boss, can be daunting, it can also lead to stronger trust and a better relationship. In uneasy moments, such as public speaking, you have the opportunity to build self-esteem and strengthen underused skills. Every uncomfortable situation elicits something gained. € Own your professional growth. Ask your manager to assign you to projects in which youll have the opportunity to learn something new „ whether its on your own through research, or through interaction with other team members and departments. Go beyond whats asked of you by taking online courses and reading books (hint: your mentor can likely give you some recommendations). Lastly, make it apparent to your manager and colleagues that you are willing to contribute or lend a hand when needed. The bottom line: own your development. Dont leave it in the hands of your employer. If youre a working woman, more tips and advice can be found at randstadusa.com. Invest in a plan and know where you want to go. Take steps toward people who will help you on your journey,Ž says Kristin Kelley, chief marketing of“cer, Randstad North America. Meet as many people of in”uence as you can and stay top of mind with them. Ask for help when you need it „ whether it be from managers, peers, sponsors or mentors „ and drive those personal connections.ŽTime to Take Charge: Tips for Women to Advance Their CareersPROVIDED BY STATEPOINT SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTOIn your professional life, there will be successes and failures, good days and bad.

Grif“n announced on HBOs Real Time With Bill MaherŽ on Friday night that she had just booked upcoming shows at New Yorks Carnegie Hall and at Washingtons Kennedy Center „ Trumps backyard,Ž she called it. Im dipping my toes into touring again,Ž Grif“n said, adding that the Republican president and his supporters would prefer she never worked again. Grif“ns appearance on Mahers show „ and what she called her small victorious announcementŽ „ appeared to mark the beginning of her comeback, after the backlash over the offending photo last May badly hurt her ability to work. TMZ was reporting my show cancellations in real time,Ž she said of her standup tour. She also lost her longtime New Years Eve hosting gig on CNN. Unable to tour in the United States, Grif“n went overseas, performing in 23 cities in 15 countries, she said. But because she was under investigation in the United States, she was detained at every single airport,Ž she said. Grif“n thanked Maher for being one of the only celebrities who publicly supported her during the ordeal. Introducing Grif“n, Maher told the audience that she is a good American who loves her country and should be able to work in it.Ž Initially, Grif“n apologized for the photo that appeared last May, taken by photographer Tyler Shields. But she later said she was no longer sorry, because the reaction had gotten so out of hand. Referring to the desire of some Trump supporters to decimateŽ her, she raised her arms de“antly and exclaimed, Im not decimated!Ž Grif“n has not speci“ed the dates of her upcoming shows in New York, which she also announced on Twitter, and in Washington.Kathy Griffin to do new shows, 9 months after Trump photoBy JOCELYN NOVECKAP NATIONAL WRITER JANET VAN HAM/HBO VIA APIn this Friday, March 9, photo provided by HBO, comedian Kathy Grin, left, talks with host Bill Maher on Real Time With Bill Maher, in Los Angeles.

NORTH PORT „ Leah Weiss, the author of If the Creek Dont Rise,Ž will speak Monday night at Shannon Staub Public Library in North Port. Her book is an Appalachian tale thats been named a Library Reads, Indie Next and Orka pick. Shell speak and read selections from the novel at 6 p.m., at the library located at 4675 Career Lane, North Port. According to a news release provided by the library, If the Creek Dont Rise is a bold and beautifully layered debut about a dusty, desperate North Carolina Appalachia town, and the stranger who shakes up this tenacious mountain community.Ž It tells the story of Sadie Blue, who has been married to Roy Tupkin for 15 days, but its long enough to know she never should have hitched herself to him, because when he gets mad, she gets hit. But when a stranger sweeps into Baines Creek and knocks things off-kilter, Sadie “nds herself with an unexpected lifelineƒ if she can just “gure out how to use it,Ž according to a news release. The book will be available for purchase and signing after the program.

Also called just plain African Hosta, this little plant can make an amazing specimen in your landscape. A few years ago a UF/IFAS Specialist was sharing some plants that he had dug up and divided. He said that they were called African False Hosta and I was intrigued! I took a few small divisions of the plant and potted them up to see if I liked them or not. I had never seen these plants and had to look up some information about them before I could begin to either appreciate or neglect them „ or both! The False African Hosta is a bulbous plant with oval, green waxy leaves somewhat reminiscent of Hosta, but generally only 4 to 6 inches long with wavy edges and dark purple spots or blotches giving the leaf an interesting appearance. These spots tend to fade with age and by summer the leaves are completely green. The plant is generally lea”ess during the dormant winter season. To complement the rosette of leaves that emerge in late winter, a series of white ”ower stalks, about 1-foot-tall, emerge in the spring. The ”ower stalk is comprised of many bell-like ”owers held at the top part of the green and reddish stalk. Another name for this plant is, accordingly, Little White Soldiers. This plant is ideal for shade to part-shade sites in all types of soil situations. The False African Hosta is also very tolerant of drought once established and takes our warm weather quite well. Good for rock gardens, along pathways and even in contianers, the False African Hosta is slow-growing, but will bene“t from division every few years. I divided mine up and separated the numerous small bulbs in the fall of 2017, and now have several containers of speckled plants. The bulbs barely get up to two inches in diameter at best. While the False African Hosta is eye-catching in season, it is rarely locally available except at family-run and specialty garden centers. A quick Internet search did yield several vendors of this plant. This is a real specialty plant that may be of interest to collectors or curators of plant zoos.Ž I appreciate this plant, but do plan to neglect it as it is carefree. This slow-growing, mini-Hosta impersonator may be something of interest to you and a potential addition to your plant collection! For more information on all types of ”owering bulbous plants suitable for our area, please call our Master Gardener volunteers on the Plant Lifeline on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 941-764-4340 for gardening help and insight into their role as an eExtension volunteer. Dont forget to visit our other County Plant Clinics in the area. Please check this link for a complete list of site locations, dates and times „ http://blogs. ifas.u”.edu/charlotteco/ “les/2018/01/PlantClinics-Schedule.pdf. Ralph E.

He can be reached at 941-764-4344 or ralph.mitchell@ charlottecountyfl.gov.Riddle me this … when is a Hosta not a Hosta? PHOTOS PROVIDEDThe owers give this plant its other name „ Little White Soldiers. Attractive spotty leaves on new growth from the African False Hosta Ralph Mitchell Biggy, Mack and Blacky are all wonderful cats that should be in a home enjoying their human family members. All three have been awaiting adoption at Suncoast Humane Society for over six months. At this point they must be thinking, Hey, what about meŽ as they watch their feline friends leave the shelter, one by one, heading for new permanent homes. Why havent they been adopted? Thats a good question. Maybe they have lacked the pizazz needed to demand the attention of potential adopters. Maybe they didnt have that take me homeŽ look in their eyes, at the time. Biggy is a short haired grey tiger and white cat. Due to an injury that led to an amputation, he only has three legs, but dont tell him that. He runs around the free roaming cattery as if he had “ve legs. The Societys Shelter Angle Medical Fund made it possible for Biggy to have a second chance for a fur-ever home. Mack, is a black and white feline, who just sort of lays around watching the world go by. He is very laid back and would “t into about any home environment. Then there is Blacky who may be confused with his name because he is actually brown and white. He is a loving cat who wants to be held and cuddled. Blacky would enjoy a slowpaced environment. In addition to the three long timers named above, there are other pets that have been patiently waiting since before the New Year, for the right family to come along. A special critter is Snowball, a Dutch rabbit. Snowball IS properly named because he is white, He is a very socialized rabbit and even walks on leash, or at least hops on leash. There is Morty, a 6-year-old lab mix, and Princess, a 5-year-old Pitbull type whose injuries were also treated through the Shelter Angel Medical Fund. Each of these pets would be a great addition for someone or some family. The main ingredient they are looking for is love. In return they will be wonderful companions. Suncoast Humane Societys regular adoption fee is $85 for dogs and cats, however longtimers that have been at the shelter six months or longer may be adopted for a reduced adoption fee of $10. Other special fees include the adoption of a senior pet adoptions, seven years and above, for $50, and a senior person, 65 and above, adopting a senior pet, is $25. In addition to all adoption fees is a $20 requirement for a rabies vaccination and $10 or $12 for a County License tag. The adoption fees are such a small amount to pay for years and years of love and devotion. Board of Trustees, staff and volunteers of Suncoast Humane Society are hoping that these special offers will attract individuals ready to consider bringing a new pet into their home. Further information on these and all available pets, check the website at humane.org, or call 941-474-7884. Adoptable pets deserve to be in loving permanent homes, not being a longtimer at an animal shelter constantly wondering, What about me?ŽHey, what about me?

WASHINGTON „ The U.S. is bolstering its military presence in Afghanistan, more than 16 years after the war started. Is anyone paying attention? Consider this: At a Senate hearing this past week on top U.S. security threats, the word AfghanistanŽ was spoken exactly four times, each during introductory remarks. In the ensuing two hours of questions for intelligence agency witnesses, no senator asked about Afghanistan, suggesting little interest in a war with nearly 15,000 U.S. troops supporting combat against the Taliban. Its not as if the wars end is in sight. Just last month the bulk of an Army training brigade of about 800 soldiers arrived to improve the advising of Afghan forces. Since January, attack planes and other aircraft have been added to U.S. forces in Afghanistan. But its not clear that the war, which began in October 2001, is going as well as the U.S. had hoped seven months after President Donald Trump announced a new, more aggressive strategy. The picture may be clearer once the traditionally most intensive “ghting season begins in April or May. Over the winter, American and Afghan warplanes have focused on attacking illicit drug facilities that are a source of Taliban revenue.

AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 28, le photo, men carry the con of a relative who died in the Jan. 27 deadly suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan. California bound: Trump heading to state he loves to hateTrump administration of“cials said Sunday there will be no more conditions imposed on North Korea before a “rst-ever meeting of the two nations leaders beyond the Norths promise not to resume nuclear testing and missile ”ights or publicly criticize U.S.-South Korean military exercises. The of“cials comments followed the surprise announcement last week that President Donald Trump has agreed to meet the Norths Kim Jong Un by May. This potential meeting has been agreed to, there are no additional conditions being stipulated, but, again they „ they cannot engage in missile testing, they cannot engage in nuclear testing and they cant publicly object to the U.S.-South Korea planned military exercises,Ž deputy White House spokesman Raj Shah said. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the summit would give Trump a chance to sit down and see if he can cut a dealŽ with Kim over the Norths nuclear program. The president has been very clear in what the objective is here. And that is to get rid of nuclear weapons on the (Korean) peninsula,Ž Mnuchin said. The administration of“cials credited toughened economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations, and pushed by the United States, with helping bring Kim to the brink of negotiations. Our policy is pressure, is pressure from our partners and allies around the world, pressure to the United Nations, pressure through China, these have had an impact. Its impacted Kim Jong Uns behavior. Its impacted his conduct,Ž Shah said. But some members of Congress said they worry that Trump acted impulsively in agreeing to meet with Kim, before negotiators for both countries had a chance to set some goals the leaders could agree to. But the important thing is the diplomatic work that has to go in before such a meeting. A meeting like that would be kind of an afterthought after things are negotiated. Here it looks as if, you know, thats kind of the opening gambit. And thats a little worrisome,Ž said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., a frequent Trump critic. The U.S. and South Korea hold military maneuvers every year. They were postponed during the recent Winter Olympics in South Korea. They are expected to be held in April, but no of“cial announcement has been made about when they will take place. In an interview en route to the Middle East, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis declined to US officials say no added conditions for North Korea talksBy MARK SHERMAN and ROBERT BURNSASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES „ Donald Trump is coming „ at last „ to the state he loves to hate, setting foot in California for his “rst time as president. This is turf he lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton by more than 4 million votes in 2016. He has mocked its judges for blocking his agenda, sued over its lax enforcement of immigration laws and threatened to pull out federal agents. But theres something hes dying to see here: the prototypes for his long-promised wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. And theres something hes eager to do here: raise cash from the Beverly Hills crowd. Trumps arrival Tuesday will come just days after his Justice Department sued to block a trio of state laws designed to protect people living in the U.S. illegally. Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown likened it to an act of warŽ with Trumps administration. Last week, Oaklands mayor warned residents of an impending immigration raid „ a move that Trump called disgraceful and said put law enforcement of“cers at risk. The state has also joined lawsuits aimed at stopping construction of Trumps stalled border wall. And its judges have repeatedly ruled against policies Trump has tried to enact. In recent months, Trump and other administration of“cials have threatened both to ”ood the state with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and to pull ICE out of the state completely. I mean, frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California, you would have a crying mess like youve never seen in California,Ž Trump said last month, predicting crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country.Ž Meanwhile, Trumps acting ICE director has repeatedly threatened to increase its enforcement footprint in the state in retaliation for its limited cooperation with federal immigration authorities „ and he appears to be making good on his promise. California better hold on tight. Theyre about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportation of“cers,Ž Thomas Homan said on Fox earlier this year before his agency conducted a series of raids.

It costs about $30 a month per person, and the full payout if youre laid off is $9,000. It seems to me you would have to be paying in for a long time to see that kind of return, so I wanted to see how you feel about this kind of thing. „ Steve Dear Steve, Anytime insurance is there for something you could cover yourself, its a good idea to stop and remember that every insurance company is still a business. They must cover all the costs of operation, plus make a pro“t. Believe me, that takes a lot of money. Statistically speaking, if lots of people cashed in on a policy like this an insurance company would go out of business. Were talking about only $30 a month to cover $9,000. That alone tells you not many people cash in. Its gimmick insurance. On average, youre losing money when you buy insurance of any kind. Again, on average, over the scope of your lifetime youd be better off simply saving money and self-insuring against things like this. The only things I recommend buying insurance for are things you cant afford to cover personally. But you can afford to cover a layoff by saving an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. If Im in your shoes, Steve, Im not buying that stuff. „ Dave Keep it in your own pocket!Dear Dave, I just “led taxes, and it looks like Ill get a pretty big refund this year. A friend of mine told me I should adjust my withholding, so I dont get a refund. This seems pretty dumb to me. Why would I change my withholdings when Im getting money back? „ James Dear James, The only reason youre getting a refund is because you had too much taken out of your paychecks in 2017. Lets say your refund is $3,500. Basically, you loaned the government $3,500 of your own money, interest-free. A refund isnt a gift or reward, James. Its your own cash that you get back because you paid in too much during the previous year. In your case, that adds up to almost $300 a month! Instead of loaning the government money that you worked hard to earn, wouldnt it be a better idea to keep it in your own pocket? „ Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions.

Giving consumers a share of drug company rebates for their prescriptions. Wider access to websites that reliably compare cost and quality of medical tests. The Trump administration is taking a pragmatic new tack on health care, with of“cials promising consumer friendly changes and savings in areas from computerized medical records to prescription drugs. New Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has been rolling out the agenda, saying it has the full backing of President Donald Trump. They are taking a page out of smart policymaking 101 and hitting on themes that everybody cares about,Ž said Kavita Patel, a health policy expert at the Brookings Institution and a veteran of the Obama administration. But there is not a lot of detail on how theyre going to do it.Ž A look at new priorities outlined by Azar and Seema Verma, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services:Computerized medical recordsMost hospitals and doctors now have electronic records, but the systems dont necessarily talk to each other and patients “nd that their medical information remains hard to access. The administration wants to write new standards nudging industry to get the systems communicating. That would allow patients to easily transfer records from one provider to another. Were not interested in micromanaging how this process happens,Ž Azar said. Patients ought to have control of their records in a useful format, period.Ž Medicare is working with software developers on apps that can provide bene“ciaries with access to their claims data, which offer important medical details but not a complete picture. Dan Mendelson, CEO of the consulting “rm Avalere Health, says the goal is within reach, perhaps over a three-year period.Drug costsAs a candidate, Trump called for Medicare to negotiate drug prices and for allowing U.S. patients to import lower-cost prescriptions from overseas. His administration seems to have dropped those ideas. But Azar, who spent 10 years as a pharmaceutical executive, has lots of other proposals. They include speeding generics to market, short-circuiting maneuvers that drug companies use to ward off competitors, and changing government policies that may encourage drugmakers to raise prices because federal programs will bear the cost. Azar praised insurer UnitedHealthcare for its recent announcement that it will pass on drugmaker rebates to some of its customers. That mirrors a Trump budget proposal for Medicare, the governments premier health insurance program, covering about 60 million seniors and disabled people.Pulling back the veilA routine test such as an echocardiogram, an ultrasound exam that can detect heart problems, can cost 10 times as much in a hospital as it does in a doctors of“ce. And thats just the list price. Real prices paid by different insurers and by Medicare also vary, and can be impossible for consumers to “nd. Republicans have a longtime goal of getting true prices for health care goods and services in front of consumers, reasoning that could lead to a market revolution and help curb relentless spending. Real competition has never been fully tried in our bizarreŽ system, Azar told a hospital group. Hes promising to use the weight of Medicare and Medicaid, a federal-state collaboration covering more than 70 million low-income people, to pull back the veil on medical pricing. That could help the increasing number of people with high-deductible health insurance who can face thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs.Paying for value, not volumeChanging Medicares piecemeal payment system so it rewards quality and not just sheer volume of tests and procedures is a long-standing goal for lawmakers of both parties. The Obama administration tried multiple experiments and made some improvements. But results were not clear-cut. Azar is promising to go further, faster. Spokesman Ryan Murphy said HHS is reviewing all its payment rules to see if in fact Medicare is paying for value.Wild cardAs the administration pledges to improve quality and lower costs, its still pursuing repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which would result in millions of lowand moderate-income people losing coverage. Can you really pursue positive changes in health care delivery while at the same time you start losing coverage?Ž asked Rother. It is an interesting dilemma.ŽTrump uses page from smart policymaking 101 on health careBy RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVARASSOCIATED PRESS

The Sun /Monday, March 12, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATION BOISE, Idaho „ Federal scientists are trying to decide if its time to let the big dogs out. Nearly 120 dogs from three large breeds perfected over centuries in Europe and Asia to be gentle around sheep and children but vicious when confronting wolves recently underwent a study to see how theyd react to their old nemesis on a new continent. The dogs were gathered as puppies in Portugal, Bulgaria and Turkey and sent to the American West, where they spent four years guarding sheep. When we were “rst looking at doing this, a lot of people wanted to know: What dog do I use in dealing with wolves and grizzly bears?Ž said Julie Young, a Utah-based research biologist with the U.S. Agriculture Departments National Wildlife Research Center. The department looked to areas where dog breeds developed to guard sheep against wolves and brown bears. Then scientists supplied Cao de Gado Transmontanos, a large though lean and agile dog developed in a mountainous region of Portugal; Karakachans, developed by nomadic sheepherders in a mountainous area of Bulgaria; and Kangals, another powerful breed with an instinct for guarding, this one originating in Turkey. Dogs from all three breeds can weigh up to 140 pounds, about the size of a wolf. The dogs were sent to guard 65 herds in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon. Scientists are still analyzing information from notes, remote cameras and GPS collars, Young said, with four or “ve scienti“c papers expected in the next year. But overall, she said, the dogs did well keeping away wolves and better than traditional guard dogs at deterring coyotes. One dog died during the study. It was hit by a vehicle as sheep crossed a road. For decades, most U.S. sheep producers have used large white dogs such as Great Pyrenees, Akbash or Maremma Sheepdogs. Light brown Anatolian Shepherds are also used. But the reintroduction of wolves in the American West in the 1990s has led to questions about whether those breeds are up to the task. Since wolves returned to Idaho in 1995, the Agriculture Departments Wildlife Services says, wolves have killed 50 guard dogs through the end of last year and injured nearly 40 others in the state. Federal of“cials in 2017 killed 56 wolves in Idaho due to attacks on livestock. Young said the study found wolves left areas when sheep bands, dogs and herders arrived, but their absence emboldened smaller predators such as coyotes. Not all dogs in the study succeeded. Jill Swannack, president of the Washington State Sheep Producers, is a veterinarian who also has a ranch with about 800 sheep on private land in eastern Washington state. She received three Karakachans. When we came home, they preferred to be home with us,Ž she said. They really didnt bond to the sheep.Ž She also said the dogs were only about 70 or 80 pounds (32 to 36 kilograms). One went to a young family with sheep near their house, and now that dog plays with the children and has successfully guarded those sheep against coyotes. The dogs that work best at her ranch are Anatolian Shepherds, though wolves killed one in 2014. Wolves are a phenomenal predator,Ž Swannack said. I would be happy if we didnt have them, but Im also a realist, and we do have them. So we need the tools to deal with them and the support.Ž Ranchers can call the Agriculture Departments Wildlife Services to kill wolves that attack livestock. Environmentalists, though, have been working to reduce the need for that and see guard dogs as one solution. Most of the year, the livestock guardian dogs are an excellent deterrent,Ž said Suzanne Stone of Defenders of Wildlife, noting the exception is in the spring when wolves are guarding dens with pups. The imported guard dogs cost about $500 apiece, including transportation to the U.S., Young said, and nearly all were just a few months old when they arrived. She said the Karakachans tended to be more vigilant, the Kangals inclined to investigate, and the Cao de Gado Transmontanos better at assessing threats. Ultimately, she said, sheep producers might bene“t from a mix of dogs that includes some that stick near the sheep and others that patrol the perimeter. Another part of the study involved the relationship between dogs and herders, many Peruvians, which will be one of the scienti“c papers. Theres a bond there,Ž Young said. Just from watching them and looking at data, the ones who were better bonded, the dogs just seemed to perform better.ŽGuard dogs deployed as part of US wolf-sheep studyBy KEITH RIDLERASSOCIATED PRESS JULIE YOUNG/U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE VIA APIn this 2014 photo provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a Kangal dog walks with a heard of sheep at the Hutterite Rockport Colony near Pendroy, Mont.

Maines the only state in the U.S. with a significant fishery for baby eels, which are called elvers. The tiny, translucent eels are sold to Asian aquaculture companies to be raised to maturity for use as food. The eels sold for about $1,300 per pound last year and are already one of the most lucrative fisheries in the country on a per-pound basis. State Rep. Jeffrey Pierce, a consultant to the elver fishery, says fishermen in Asia are seeing a poor harvest this year and European eel fisheries are cracking down on poaching. That means Maines baby eels will be in higher demand.ODD NEWS Fishermen of baby eels expect high price as stocks dry updiscuss the timing and scale of the exercises. Mattis wouldnt talk at all about the diplomatic push over North Koreas nuclear program. When you get in a position like this, the potential for misunderstanding remains very high,Ž he said. Mattis was among the advisers in the White House on Thursday when Trump decided to accept Kims offer to meet. The offer was relayed to Trump by a South Korean government delegation that briefed the president on their meeting with Kim last week in North Koreas capital. Trump said Saturday that he believes North Korea will abide by its pledge to suspend missile tests while he prepares for the summit. He noted in a tweet that North Korea has refrained from such tests since November and said Kim has promised not to do so through our meetings.Ž I believe they will honor that commitment,Ž the president said. Later, at a political rally in Pennsylvania, when Trump mentioned Kims name, the crowd booed. But Trump responded: No, its very positive ... no, after the meeting you may do that, but now we have to be very nice because lets see what happens, lets see what happens.Ž Flake and Mnuchin spoke on NBCs Meet the Press.Ž Shah was on ABCs This Week.ŽTALKSFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 19, 2017, le photo, President Donald Trump addresses the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, at U.N. headquarters. the trip has been in the works for months and the timing so close to recent ”are-ups was coincidental. When asked if Trump planned to play nice on the trip, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, Look, I think if anybody is stepping out of bounds here, it would be someone who is refusing to follow federal law, which is certainly not the president. And were going for what we hope to be an incredibly positive trip.Ž Trumps overnight visit will include a stop in San Diego to inspect eight sample designs for the wall hes been raring to build. He will also be speaking with members of the military and traveling to Los Angeles for a splashy Beverly Hills fundraiser, where attendees will pay up to $250,000 per person. Trumps appearances in the left-leaning state during the 2016 campaign were marked by sometimes-violent clashes between his supporters and opposition groups. In some cases, protesters blocked traf“c and threw rocks and beer bottles. Protests are expected during this trip. Trumps more than yearlong absence from the nations most populous state „ home to 1 in 8 Americans and, by itself, the worlds sixth-largest economy „ has been conspicuous but not surprising. Trump country, its not. As a candidate, Trump suggested he could win California, a state that hasnt supported a Republican for the White House in three decades. Since his election, Sacramento has emerged as a vanguard in the so-called Trump resistance. Democratic state Attorney General Xavier Becerra has “led over a dozen lawsuits to block administration proposals. California was the home of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, but Republican in”uence here has been fading for years as a surge in immigrants transformed the state and its voting patterns. The number of Hispanics, blacks and Asians combined has outnumbered whites since 1998. Meanwhile, the states new voters, largely Latinos and Asians, lean Democratic, and Democrats hold every statewide of“ce and control both chambers of the Legislature by hefty margins. Polls have found Trump deeply unpopular in the state, with most residents opposed to policies hes championed, such as expanding offshore drilling. Jessica Hayes, chairwoman of the San Diego County Democratic Party, said Trumps anti-immigration rhetoric plays especially poorly in a state with close trade and tourism connections with Mexico. These are our neighbors. These are our friends,Ž she said. Trump has repeated ly ”oated the idea of ”ying in to pick the winning design for the border wall, telling rallygoers last year in Alabama: Im going to go out and look at them personally and pick the right one.Ž The Department of Homeland Security has said theres nothing to stop Trump from turning the wall design contest into a Miss Universe-style pageant. But the department also says it doesnt anticipate that a single prototype will be selected. Instead, the samples are expected to inform future border wall design standards,Ž said spokesman Tyler Houlton.STATEFROM PAGE 1 and International Studies, wrote last month that the administration has made major improvements in military tactics and plans for developing Afghan forces but has done nothing to deal with civil and political stability.Ž That challenge is expected to come into clearer focus with the approach of parliamentary elections planned for July. The administration not only faces a deteriorating security situation, it has no clear political, governance, or economic strategy to produce Afghan stability,Ž Cordesman said. In his view, the U.S. military has been assigned a mission impossibleŽ in Afghanistan. The weak central government in Kabul and the resilient Taliban insurgency are not the U.S. militarys only problems there. It also faces what Gen. Joseph Votel, the top U.S. general overseeing the war, calls interference by Russia. He told a congressional panel last month that Moscow is seeking to undermine U.S. and NATO in”uence in Afghanistan by exaggerating the presence of Islamic State “ghters there and portraying this as a U.S. failure. When Trump announced in August that he was ordering a new approach to the war, he said he realized the American people are weary of war without victory.Ž He said his instinct was to pull out, but that after consulting with aides, he decided to seek an honorable and enduring outcome.Ž He said that meant committing more resources to the war, giving commanders in the “eld more authority and staying in Afghanistan for as long as it takes. Stephen Biddle, a professor of political science and international affairs at George Washington University, said Americans relative lack of interest in the war gives Trump political maneuver room to conduct the war as he wishes, but that dynamic is not necessarily a good one. The idea that a democracy is spending billions of dollars a year, killing people and sacri“cing American lives waging war, and the elected representatives of the people arent paying attention I think is inappropriate,Ž Biddle said. But to say it is inappropriate isnt to say its surprising, because this is the way Congress has been behaving toward this war for a long, long time.Ž Last November, the U.S. comma nder in Kabul, Gen. John Nicholson, said the Afghan army, with U.S. support, had turned the cornerŽ and captured momentum against the Taliban. Since then, the Taliban have conducted a series of high-pro“le attacks in Kabul and elsewhere that have killed scores of civilians.

White House spokesman Raj Shah says the president will not advocate universalŽ background checks, but will reiterate his support for a bill that would promote better information-sharing. The president will also be convening a task force to further study the issue. Theres going to be a series of proposals,Ž Shah said on ABCs This WeekŽ in an interview Sunday. Some will be legislative, some will be administrative and some will be recommendations for states as well as a task force to study this issue in more depth and make more additional policy recommendations. So its going to be consistent with what the president has talked about.Ž The long-awaited recommendations are expected to be laid out in more detail by the White House on Sunday evening, nearly a month after the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 students and staff dead. In the weeks since the massacre, Trump has held listening sessions with lawmakers, survivors of recent school shootings and the families of victims. Hes also met and spoken with the heads of the powerful National Ri”e Association. The NRA on Friday sued Florida over a new gun law signed by Republican Gov. Rick Scott that bans the purchase of “rearms by anyone under the age of 21. During those meetings, Trump advocated arming certain teachers and school staffers, arguing that gun-free schools are like an invitation for these very sick peopleŽ to commit murder. If you had a teacher who was adept at “rearms, they could end the attack very quickly,Ž he has said. The idea, which was panned by Democrats and teachers unions, but is popular with gun advocates, is expected to be included in the plan. During the often freewheeling conversations, Trump also seemed to voice support for universalŽ background checks, which would apply to private gun sales and those at gun shows, instead of just from licensed dealers. He also raised eyebrows by suggesting that law enforcement of“cials should be able to con“scate guns from those they deem a safety risk even before a court has weighed in. Take the guns “rst, go through due process second,Ž Trump said. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, later walked back both suggestions, saying Universal means something different to a lot of people.Ž She said the president wanted to expedite the court process, not circumvent it. Shah said Trump would be reiterating his call for improvements to the National Instant Criminal Background Check through the Fix NICSŽ bill, which would penalize federal agencies that dont properly report required records and reward states that comply by providing them with federal grant preferences. The bill was written in response to a shooting last November by a gunman whose domestic violence conviction the Air Force failed to report to the National Criminal Information Center database. It has already passed the House.Trumps plan will seek to harden schools against shootingsBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this Feb. 14, 2018 le photo, students hold their hands in the air as they are evacuated by police from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., after a shooter opened re on the campus.

From sta, wire reports BOSTON „ The Northeast is bracing for its third noreaster in less than two weeks, while some people are still feeling the effects of the last storm that dumped more than 2 feet of snow in some areas and left hundreds of thousands of customers without power. A southern storm is expected to make its way up the coast, causing more snowfall this week, the National Weather Service said on Sunday. The Boston area is expected to get up to a foot, while southern Maine could see almost 18 inches by Wednesday. New York could get 4 to 6 inches of snow and Philadelphia could see a few inches by Tuesdays morning commute. Eight inches could fall in West Virginia and 4 inches is expected in Kentucky. A winter storm watch is in effect for most of New England, parts of New York and Virginia. Alexandra Soto, of Bushkill, Pennsylvania, said she was not looking forward to the next storm. Her home lost power during the “rst noreaster on March 2 and the lights did not come back on until Saturday, well after the second storm. Im hoping they have enough crews to deal with whatever happens and that they took some proactive measures so that next time, they dont have to be reactive,Ž Soto said. Frankly, Im hoping this next storm just misses us, because I dont think I could take another.Ž The risk for coastal ”ooding is expected to be lower than the last noreaster, which ”ooded much of Cape Cod and seaside towns. Massachusetts of“cials said 2,700 customers remained without power on Sunday. Thousands more across southern New England also remained without electricity as they prepared for the third noreaster in 12 days. It doesnt happen very often, Ill say that.

Page 6 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 12, 2018 ENTERTAINMENT LOS ANGELES „ TChalla still rules the box of“ce four weeks in, even with the fresh rivalry of another Walt Disney Studios release in A Wrinkle in Time.Ž Black PantherŽ took the No. 1 spot at the North American box of“ce with $41.1 million according to studio estimates Sunday, leaving another newcomer in its wake. The Marvel and Disney phenomenon crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide this weekend and became the 7th highest grossing domestic release with $562 million. Not accounting for in”ation, its now passed The Dark Knight.Ž With a marketplace still dominated by Black Panther,Ž Disney faced some stiff competition from its own studio in launching Ava DuVernays adaption of A Wrinkle in Time,Ž which opened in second place with $33.3 million from 3,980 locations. The PG-rated “lm, which cost around $103 million to produce and stars Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon, received mixed reviews from critics (its currently at a rottenŽ 44 percent on RottenTomatoes) and audiences who gave it a B CinemaScore. In gauging A Wrinkle in TimesŽ long-term prospects, a somewhat similar comparison could be Disneys Tomorrowland,Ž a PG-rated sci-“ pic with middling reviews and a B CinemaScore which opened to $33 million in the early summer of 2015 and went on to gross $93 million domestically. Tomorrowland,Ž however, notably cost nearly twice as much to make as A Wrinkle in Time.Ž But the Black PantherŽ effect is the x-factor here. For Disney, its a win all around.Ž When you think about having two “lms at the top of the box of“ce, its de“nitely a win all around,Ž says Disneys worldwide theatrical distribution president Dave Hollis. Were feeling good about this start ... Were feeling good about what, for us, is a little family competition between now and (the Easter holiday).Ž Hollis says he doesnt think the studio would have done anything differently regarding WrinklesŽ release had they known the scope and longevity of Black PanthersŽ prospects. Theres always going to be competition in the marketplace,Ž he says. With a tentpole strategy like ours, four weeks of separation is about what we can expect.Ž Still, Black PantherŽ has devoured the marketplace for a month straight now, leaving all other newcomers in the dust. The new horror “lm The Strangers: Prey At Night,Ž with Christina Hendricks, took third place with $10.5 million. The Jennifer Lawrence thriller Red SparrowŽ landed in fourth in its second w eekend with $8.2 million and the comedy Game NightŽ placed “fth with $7.9 million in weekend three. Hardly any of the new releases, which also included the thriller The Hurricane HeistŽ (8th place, $3.2 million) and the dark action comedy Gringo,Ž (11th place, $2.6 million) were well-reviewed going into the weekend, save for the limited release independents like Thoroughbreds,Ž which made $1.2 million from 549 locations, and Armando Iannuccis The Death of Stalin,Ž which opened in four theaters to $181,000. It also left room for the Academy Award best picture winner The Shape of Water,Ž which is also available on home video, to capitalize on its post-Oscars stature. The Fox Searchlight “lm added 720 theaters and took in in $2.4 million from 1,552 locations, bringing its domestic total to $61 million. But even though Black PantherŽ has helped boost the year to date box of“ce signi“cantly, its also proving to be a continued challenge for any other wide release hoping for a piece of the market. Every movie that has opened in the wake of Black Panther has had its work cut out for it,Ž says comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. We keep underestimating this “lm and it just shows no sign of slowing down.Ž Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

The Sun /Monday, March 12, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: In a recent column, you recommended "a diet based mostly on plants and legumes, with nuts, some fruits, whole grains and almost no rened sugars and starches." By "some fruits," are you suggesting not eating certain fruits, or just a limited amount of fruit overall? I ask because my cardiologist has recommended an Atkins-type diet with a heavy emphasis on meat „ with full fat „ while limiting carbs and not eating fruit, because it turns to sugar, he claimed. I prefer a diet of fruit and vegetables, with a limited amount of meat and few carbs. I do love sh and shrimp. My wife can't tolerate sugar, so I never have sugar or sweets of any kind. I never add sugar or sweeteners of any kind to any food or beverage. I'm 70 years old and have had a heart catheterization, which indicated clean, clear arteries. However, I have weight gain. I prefer a physically active lifestyle, and canoe on lakes quite often three seasons of the year, for several hours each time. Please clarify the "some fruits" term, and also what do you think about cutting out fruit entirely, as my cardiologist recommended? I'm concerned that that would lead to serious constipation, which I don't experience when I have enough fruit in my diet. „ G.H. ANSWER: There is no agreement on the "best" type of diet, and my use of "some fruits" reected some current thinking that excess amounts of fruit may not be optimally healthy. Fruits indeed are high in sugar. Although not all fruits are the same, most have ber, which slows down sugar absorption, while others can be absorbed more quickly. Most data show that the sugars found naturally in fruits have much less (if any) adverse eect on risk of heart disease, and in people with diabetes, two to four servings of fruit do not seem to adversely aect blood sugar. However, most people do not eat enough fruit, so I don't want to advise against fruit eating: It's fruit juices and sweetened fruit products that I recommend against consuming in other than modest amounts. Although there is good evidence that a high-protein, high-fat diet of the type you describe helps in short-term and medium-term weight loss, I do not recommend large amounts of the saturated fat found in most farm-raised meat. Again, the data are controversial, with one recent review suggesting little or no harm from saturated fat, but the preponderance of the evidence still is concerning, and I think the diet you prefer, of vegetables, sh and fruit, is likely to be healthier in the long term. DEAR DR. ROACH: I was very upset about a recent column in which a man thought he got stenosis from implantation of a pacemaker. Your response stated that you had never heard of losing function due to a pacemaker placement and that it is normally a short and straightforward procedure. My mother had the procedure, and they pierced her heart, which resulted in open heart surgery and eventual death. I believe that serious consequences should be explained on any surgical procedure. „ M.C. ANSWER: I can understand why you would be upset, and you are right that any procedure has the possibility of harm. About 0.1 to 1 percent of pacemaker placements can have serious complications, including death. It normally is a straightforward procedure, but it certainly can have a bad outcome. Like anything else, the risks must be weighed against the benets.DEAR ABBY: My 15-year-old daughter, "Jenny," went to a sleepover with her two best friends from school last Friday, "Penny" and "Ginger." Penny's parents went out and left the girls alone. They drank some beer. Jenny and Ginger were sober, but Penny also drank some hard liquor and got very drunk. I found out about it the following Monday after Penny texted my daughter and Ginger to tell them how upset and disappointed her parents were and that they were demanding letters of apology from all three girls. I thought it was over the top, but realized Jenny was in the wrong. That same day Jenny wrote them an email with a heartfelt apology for disrespecting everyone by drinking in their house, for drinking their beer without permission and for allowing their daughter to get drunk. Now, the fth day after the email was conrmed received, my daughter is disappointed that it was never acknowledged. Penny's parents have been known to be dramatic in past dealings with other students and parents. Will you advise me on what I should do? I feel I should let it go and let Jenny gure out how she should choose her friends. „ Jenny's Mom In Canada DEAR MOM: There is plenty of blame to go around. Penny's parents shouldn't have left three teenagers alone with liquor available. While I can't blame them for being upset after coming home and nding their daughter smashed and the other two "tiddly," they were wrong to expect Jenny and Ginger to have prevented their daughter from misbehaving. I do not agree that asking for a written apology was over the top. And under the circumstances, I don't think your daughter's letter needed acknowledgment. Let it go, with a rm lecture to your daughter about underage drinking and the consequences that will follow if you nd out it happens again.

Page 10 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 12, 2018 WORLD NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK, Kenya „ On the outskirts of a sprawling reserve of Kenyan grasslands where endangered animals roam wild, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson lavished praise on an American-funded forensics lab that tracks down elephant-poachers for prosecution, and urged aggressive action in Africa on conservation. Yet earlier this month, the Trump administration quietly lifted the U.S. ban on importing African elephant trophies, to the dismay of environmental groups who said it sends precisely the wrong message. U.S. words and deeds are colliding as Tillerson travels across Africa. On trade policy, HIV/AIDS and humanitarian aid, the United States at times seems at odds with itself, muddying efforts to show it wants the continent to ”ourish and is here to help. In the case of the elephants, conservationists appeared to have a powerful ally in President Donald Trump, who intervened personally last year to stop the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from lifting the Obama-era ban on tusks imported from Zambia and Zimbabwe. Trump took to Twitter to call the practice a horror show.Ž At the forensics lab at Nairobi National Park, the only such lab in east and central Africa, Tillerson agreed Sunday when famed conservationist Richard Leakey warned that the huge interestŽ in wildlife products such as elephant and rhinoceros parts was fueling the international traf“cking trade. Thats really the key, is to shut it all down,Ž Tillerson said. But three months after Trumps move to keep the ban in place, his administration reversed course again, saying elephant trophies could be imported on a caseby-case basis.Ž The U.S. agency said it chose that course of action to comply with a court ruling that said the Obama administration failed to follow proper procedure in enacting the original ban. In Kenya, where the elephant population has plummeted to roughly one-“fth of what it was in the 1970s, the new Trump policy fell ”at. The whole world is against it,Ž said Paula Kahumbu, an elephant expert and CEO of Wildlife Direct, a leading Kenyan environmental group. She said past U.S. support for banning the ivory trade has pushed China and other nations to act as well. To then say, Oh, but we have a special case for some of our people, they should be allowed to have ivory, it totally undermines the U.S. leadership role.Ž American leadership has been repeatedly questioned since Trump took of“ce in January 2017 as Washington pulls back from past commitments to NATO, to the United Nations and to aid programs that form the core of U.S. soft powerŽ diplomacy. Tillersons trip to Kenya was designed in part to highlight the success of PEPFAR, the 15-yearold HIV/AIDS program that has saved millions of lives and helped see the continent through an epidemic that once threatened to wipe out a whole generation. More than 13 million people with HIV in Africa are on lifesaving antiretroviral drugs thanks to PEPFAR, the U.S. has said. Its a very proud moment for us and a very proud moment for the American people,Ž Ambassador Deborah Birx, the U.S. global AIDS coordinator, said this past week. So HIV/AIDS advocates are scratching their heads at why Trump has repeatedly proposed cutting hundreds of millions of dollars from PEPFAR. The nonpro“t ONE Campaign warned that the cut would lead to hundreds of thousands more people dying of AIDS each year. The Trump administration has said despite those reductions, it believes theres enough money left to maintain all current patient levelsŽ „ meaning to not cut off anyones lifesaving medications. But public health groups say they cant understand why U.S. would pull back from the President George W. Bush-era program at the very moment when Tillerson says the world can actually now see a future free of HIV/AIDS.Ž Visiting the African Union headquarters in Ethiopia earlier in his trip, Tillerson urged of“cials not to go ahead with a plan to impose a 0.2 percent tariff on imports. The goal is to help the AU become “nancially self-suf“cient, but the U.S. is concerned the plan runs afoul of the World Trade Organization, thus keeping U.S. companies out of the African market. The timing for Tillersons push was inauspicious: Trump is in the midst of going ahead with steep trade penalties on aluminum and steel imported to the U.S.Trumps words, deeds on Africa are collidingBy JOSH LEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESS JONATHAN ERNST/POOL PHOTO VIA APU.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson speaks while touring an anti-poaching forensic lab at the Kenya Wildlife Service in Nairobi, Kenya, Sunday. BEIJING „ Xi Jinping, already Chinas most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, received a vastly expanded mandate Sunday as lawmakers abolished presidential term limits that have been in place for more than 35 years and wrote his political philosophy into the countrys constitution. In one swift vote, the rubber-stamp legislature opened up the possibility of Xi serving as president for life, returning China to the one-man-rule system that prevailed during the era of Mao and the emperors who came before him. The package of constitutional amendments passed the nearly 3,000-member National Peoples Congress almost unanimously, with just two opposing votes and three abstentions. The vote further underscored the total dominance of Chinese politics possessed by the 64-year-old Xi, who serves simultaneously as the head of state, leader of the ruling Communist Party and commander of the powerful 1 millionmember armed forces. The move upends a system enacted by former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in 1982 to prevent a return to the bloody excesses of a lifelong dictatorship typi“ed by Maos chaotic 1966-1976 Cultural Revolution. This marks the biggest regression in Chinas legal system since the reform and opening-up era of the 1980s,Ž said Zhang Lifan, an independent Beijing-based political commentator. Im afraid that this will all be written into our history in the future,Ž Zhang said. The change is widely seen as the culmination of Xis efforts since being appointed leader of the party in 2012 to concentrate power in his own hands and defy norms of collective leadership established over the past two decades. Xi has appointed himself to head bodies that oversee national security, “nance, economic reform and other major initiatives, effectively sidelining the Communist Partys No. 2 “gure, Premier Li Keqiang. In addition to scrapping the limitation that presidents can serve only two consecutive terms, the amendments also inserted Xis personal political philosophy into the preamble of the constitution, along with phrasing that emphasizes the partys leadership. It is rare nowadays to see a country with a constitution that emphasizes the constitutional position of any one political party,Ž Zhang said. Voting among the legislatures hand-picked delegates began in the mid-afternoon, with Xi leading members of the partys seven-member all-powerful Politburo Standing Committee in casting their ballots on a stage inside a cavernous hall. He placed his orange ballot paper in a red box bearing the of“cial seal of state. Rank-and-“le deputies then rose to vote on the ”oor of the hall as jaunty instrumental music played. The process was over in 10 minutes, and delegates returned to their seats while the votes were counted. Shortly after 3:50 p.m., the results were read over the public-address system and ”ashed brie”y on a screen in the hall. The constitutional amendment item has passed,Ž the announcer declared to polite applause. Xi showed little emotion, remaining in his seat with other deputies to listen to a report on the work of the congress delivered by its outgoing chairman.Historic vote in China will let president rule for lifeBy CHRISTOPHER BODEENASSOCIATED PRESS Israeli army draft bill spat could spark early electionsJERUSALEM (AP) „ Israels prime minister is holding emergency negotiations with key coalition partners in hopes of averting a crisis that has threatened to plunge the country into early elections. Members of Benjamin Netanyahus government have been quarreling over whether to extend military draft exemptions afforded to ultra-Orthodox men. His religious partners say they will not vote for the 2019 budget without draft exemptions, while a key secular partner has vowed to bolt the coalition if the budget isnt passed soon. A letter Sunday by the lawmakers Council of Torah Sages, a policymaking body, rejected a compromise offer, saying there was no change in the religious partys stance. The political woes come as Netanyahu is battling corruption allegations. But his base appears to be rallying behind him and he is rising in polls.Private plane flying from Sharjah to Turkey crashes in IranTEHRAN, Iran (AP) „ A Turkish private jet ”ying from the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul with at least 11 people on board crashed Sunday night in a mountainous region of Iran, authorities said. There was no immediate report of injuries. Iranian state television quoted Mojtaba Khaledi, the spokesman of the countrys emergency management organization, as saying the plane hit a mountain in Shahr-e Kord and burst into ”ames. Shahr-e Kord is some 370 kilometres (230 miles) south of the capital, Tehran. The state-run IRNA news agency and state television said rescuers were trying to reach the scene. Villagers near the crash say they saw ”ames coming from the planes engine before the crash, according to a report by Irans state-run judiciary news agency Mizan. The semi-of“cial Fars news agency said the plane took off from Sharjah International Airport on its way to Istanbul. Of“cials at the airport did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Sundays crash comes after an Iranian ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop used for short-distance regional ”ying, crashed in southern Iran, killing all 65 people on board in February.Cubas likely next president pledges more responsive governmentSANTA CLARA, Cuba (AP) „ The 57-yearold Communist Party of“cial expected to assume Raul Castros seat as president of Cuba on April 19 says the countrys next government will be more responsive to its people. Miguel Diaz-Canel told reporters in the central city of Santa Clara that the people will participate in the decisions that the government takes.Ž He also lamented the downturn in relations with the U.S. under President Donald Trump, saying the reestablishment of relations has been deteriorating thanks to an administration that has offended Cuba.Ž Diaz-Canel appeared to be a promising a shift toward a more open governing style rather than any sweeping political reform. In a bit of political theater re”ecting that new style, he waited in line to vote with citizens ratifying a government-selected list of parliamentary candidates on Sunday.Pakistans ex-PM Sharif dodges shoe thrown in seminaryLAHORE, Pakistan (AP) „ Pakistani police say they have arrested a man and his accomplice for throwing a shoe at former premier Nawaz Sharif in the eastern city of Lahore. Police officer Nishat Cheema said the two men were former students of the Jamia Naeemia seminary, which Sharif visited Sunday. It wasnt immediately clear why they targeted Sharif, who was struck in the chest by the footwear. In a separate incident Saturday, a man threw ink on Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif during a convention of his political party in Punjab province, blackening his face. Authorities said the perpetrator, not affiliated with any political party, was hurtŽ that Asifs party had tried to change the finality of Islams Prophet Mohammad in the constitution. Sharif was disqualified by the supreme court last year for concealing assets.Lightning strike kills 16, injures 140 at church in RwandaKIGALI, Rwanda (AP) „ At least 16 people were killed in Rwanda and 140 others injured when lightning struck a Seventh Day Adventist church in the countrys south, said a provincial governor. The churchgoers were injured and rushed to a nearby hospital, where two are in serious condition, said Rose Mureshyankwano. She said 17 of those injured are still in the hospital while the rest have been discharged. A similar incident occurred on Friday when lightning struck a group of 18 students, killing one. Last October, lightning killed 18 people in different parts of the country. Lightning strikes are frequent across Rwanda, which has many hills and mountains, and the countrys police record a number of human and livestock deaths each year. Lightning killed 30 people, injured 61 and killed 48 livestock in 2016, the most recent year with full “gures, according to Rwandas Ministry of Disaster Management and Refugee Affairs.Ethiopia command post says 9 civilians killed by mistakeADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) „ A command post overseeing Ethiopias state of emergency said security forces mistakenly killed nine civilians in Moyale, near the countrys southern border with Kenya. The command post said in a statement Sunday that “ve members of Ethiopias National Defense Forces involved in the killings have been disarmed and are under investigation. A human rights group said that since Ethiopias government declared a state of emergency in mid-February the security forces have killed several other people. The Association for Human Rights in Ethiopia said on March 9 that seven people were killed by security forces in the restive Oromia region so far this month. Ethiopia imposed the state of emergency following months of unrest in some parts of the country, tarnishing the countrys image as one of Africas best performing economies. WORLD NEWS BRIEFS

By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG „ Sebastien Bourdais wept as he crossed the finish line Sunday for his second consecutive victory at St. Petersburg. The win was a milestone for him in his recovery from serious injuries suffered in a crash at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Across the paddock, Robert Wickens fumed at the disastrous turn of events that had cost him a victory in his IndyCar debut. He dominated the seasonopening event and had the win in his grip until contact with Alexander Rossi on a restart took him out of contention. It would have been a fairy tale to finish that well, but s ometimes its just not meant to be,Ž Wickens said. Wickens led a racehigh 69 of the 110 laps. Even Bourdais, overcome with emotion after winning again on his hometown track, understood that the race had been Wickens to win. I was really happy for Robert and Im heartbroken for him,Ž Bourdais said. Wickens was a star in touring cars in Germany but defected to IndyCar this year at the coaxing of good friend James Hinchcliffe. Although he was one of seven rookies in the 24-car field Sunday, he is 28 and a proven winner.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressPALM HARBOR„ A long vict ory drought on the PGA Tour finally ended Sunday, just not the one a raucous crowd was expecting. Paul Casey closed with a 6-under 65 and won the Valspar Championship, but only after watching from the locker room as Tiger Woods came up one putt short of forcing a playoff. It was the closest Woods has come to winning in nearly five years. Casey, who started the final round five shots behind, ran off three straight birdies early on the back nine at Innisbrook to take the lead, and he closed with four par saves to post at 10-under 274. No one caught him, giving him his second PGA Tour title and his first since the Houston Open in 2009. Patrick Reed was tied for the lead and appeared headed for a playoff at worst until his approach to the 18th came back down the slope, and his 45-foot birdie putt was so weak that it rolled all the way back to his feet He three-putted for bogey and a 68. Woods and his massive following went dormant after an opening birdie to briefly share the lead. He went 15 holes without a birdie until he brought Innisbrook to life with a birdie putt from just inside 45 feet that died into the cup at the par-3 17th, leaving him one shot behind with one hole to play. Woods played conservatively with an iron off the 442-yard, uphill closing hole on the Copperhead course. From 185 yards, his approach came up some 40 feet short, and his birdie putt to force a playoff was 2 feet short.GOLF: Valspar ChampionshipCasey wins Valspar, Woods falls short SEE GOLF, 4AP PHOTOSSebastien Bourdais (18) celebrates after winning the IndyCar Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Sunday in St. Petersburg.

Harvick patted the back window of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford in celebration, a nod to penalties in part fueled by social media photos last week of his buckled rear window after his victory in Las Vegas. Ive been mad as all get out because this team does a great job,Ž Harvick said. This organization does a great job and weve got fast race cars. And to take that away from those guys just really (ticked) me off last week. To come here to a race track that is so good for us is a lot of fun and everyone was just determined this week, and we just wanted to just go stomp them. We didnt stomp them, but we won. Thats all that really matters. Just proud of this team. Put a fire in our belly.Ž Also the winner in Atlanta after crashing and finishing 31st in the season-opening Daytona 500, Harvick is the first driver to win three straight Cup races since Joey Logano in 2015. Harvick got in front of Busch on the last series of pit stops on the mile oval. Buschs team dropped the jack and had trouble with the right rear tire on his stop with 53 laps left, allowing Harvick „ who pitted three laps earlier „ to slip ahead en route to his 40th Cup victory. Harvick took the lead with 22 laps left when Ryan Newman finally made his last stop on the sunny afternoon after morning rain. Busch finished 0.774 seconds back. Chase Elliott was third, followed by Denny Hamlin, pole-sitter Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer, Aric Almirola, Eric Jones and Kurt Busch. Harvick broke a tie with Busch with 14 NASCAR national-series victories at the track, also winning an Xfinity event and four Truck races. In 31 Cup starts in Phoenix, the California driver has 15 top-five finishes.AUTO RACING: NASCARKevin Harvick earns third straight NASCAR Cup winAP PHOTOKevin Harvick (4) stands during a parade lap Sunday in Avondale, Ariz.

Kevin Durant had 39 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors, who left Curry at home from this road trip to rest an injured right ankle and lost 125-108 to Portland on Friday. Andrew Wiggins added 23 points for the Timberwolves, who lost twice on the road to the defending champion Warriors earlier this season by a combined 37 points. Curry had a collective plus-36 rating over those two games. With their spot in the ultracompetitive Western Conference standings slipping while All-Star Jimmy Butler recuperates from right knee surgery, the Wolves needed this win in the worst way in the thick of a daunting stretch of their schedule. Towns made his AllStar presence felt when it mattered most, swishing a 3-pointer with 5:54 left to give the Wolves a 99-92 edge for their largest lead since early in the second quarter. He had 14 points in the fourth p eriod alone, knocking down a floater from the lane with 2:18 to go; a fadeaway with 1:08 remaining; then a layup follow of his own miss with 37.5 seconds left to put the game away. He held out his long arms and cupped his hands to encourage the crowd as the last seconds ticked off the clock. Klay Thompson had 21 points for the Warriors, but he went 3 for 12 from 3-point range. Draymond Green added 10 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, but he had trouble defending Towns down low. Zaza Pachulia pitched in 16 points and 11 rebounds, but without their catalyst, Curry, the Warriors werent the same. The Wolves displayed some of their sharpest ball movement since Butler went down, fueling an early lead that rose as high as 11 points late in the first quarter. Coach Tom Thibodeau then initiated Derrick Roses debut in an extra-small lineup next to Tyus Jones and Jamal Crawford, and, coincidentally or not, the Warriors immediately took control. Over the 6:48 stretch Rose was in the game as the shooting guard, the Wolves were outscored 27-10. After losing the ball on a drive to the lane that led to a fast break for Warriors, Rose lost track of Livingston and gave up an uncontested dunk on the other end before Thibodeau called a timeout with the Wolves trailing 44-38. Durant and Green each knocked down a pair of 3-pointers in the second quarter, and, thanks in part to an 18-4 first-half edge in fast-break points, the Warriors built a lead as big as 57-45. The Wolves whittled away at it right before the break and kept up the comeback after halftime. Wiggins in particular was more aggressive than hes been lately, including a pull-up jumper just before the third-quarter buzzer that tied the game at 84.RAPTORS 132, KNICKS 106: Jonas Valanciunas scored 17 points, Kyle Lowry had 16 and the Raptors kept right on rolling, beating the New York Knicks 132-106 on Sunday for their season-high eighth straight victory. The Raptors had no letdown after edging NBA-leading Houston on Friday in a matchup of the No. 1 teams in each conference, leading much of the game even with DeMar DeRozan shooting just 4 for 16 for nine points. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 25 and Luke Kornet had 18 as the Knicks dropped their seventh straight game and 15th in the last 16. ROCKETS 105, MAVERICKS 82: Eric Gordon scored 26 points and Chris Paul had 24 points and 12 assists as the Houston Rockets, playing without James Harden, beat the Dallas Mavericks. The Rockets rested Harden because of a sore left knee, but had plenty of 3-point shooting even without their MVP candidate. Houston, which had its 17-game win streak snapped Friday in Toronto, broke the game open in the third quarter by hitting their “ rst six 3s of the period amid a 22-10 run. The Rockets “ nished 17-for-45 from deep. The Rockets moved 1 games ahead of Golden State for the best record in the NBA after the Warriors lost to Minnesota earlier Sunday. Dwight Powell led the Mavericks with 20 points, one short of his career high, on 9-of-11 shooting. JAZZ 116, PELICANS 99: Ricky Rubio had 30 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and Utah overcame Anthony Davis “ rst career triple-double for a 116-99 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday that extended the Jazzs winning streak to six. Donovan Mitchell scored 27 points, including 15 during the last 3:08 of the third quarter to put Utah in front for good in what could be an important victory in a tightly packed race for one of the Western Conferences “ nal “ ve playoff spots. Rudy Gobert added 19 points and 16 rebounds, and Joe Ingles scored 20 for Utah, which has won 11 straight on the road. Jrue Holiday had 18 points and 10 assists for the Pelicans.

Denver led by as many as 36 points while staying in the thick of the playoff chase. The Nuggets now enter a dif“ cult stretch in their schedule „ eight of their next nine games are on the road. Buddy Hield scored 18 points, while former Nuggets player Kosta Koufos chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings, who play Monday night in Oklahoma City. PACERS 99, CELTICS 97: Victor Oladipo scored 27 points, then committed a dead-ball offensive foul with 1.5 seconds left that gave Boston a shot to win the game at the buzzer, bu t the Indiana Pacers held on to beat the depleted Celtics 99-97 on Sunday night. Myles Turner scored 19 points, including the gamewinning basket with 21 seconds to play, and added 10 rebounds for Indiana, who survived the crazy ending to win for the “ fth time in six games. Marcus Smart scored 20 with eight assists and Jayson Tatum scored 19 for the Celtics, who had won six of their last seven. 76ERS 120, NETS 97: Joel Embiid scored 21 points, Robert Covington added 19, and the Philadelphia 76ers routed the Brooklyn Nets 120-97 on Sunday night. Dario Saric scored 18 points and Ben Simmons had 11 points, six assists and six rebounds for the 76ers, who were able to avenge a disappointing loss to the Nets at Barclays Center in January. DAngelo Russell had 26 points for the Nets, who have lost 13 of their last 15 games. BULLS 129, HAWKS 122: Zach LaVine scored 21 points, including four free throws in the “ nal 17 seconds to stop Atlantas comeback, and the Chicago Bulls beat the injury-depleted Hawks 129-122 on Sunday. Bobby Portis also had 21 points for Chicago. The Hawks, already playing without injured point guard Dennis Schroder, lost Kent Bazemore to a right knee sprain and Jaylen Morris to a left ankle injury in the second quarter. Taurean Prince led Atlanta with a careerhigh 38 points.NBA ROUNDUPTimberwolves down WarriorsAssociated PressCHICAGO „ One day after a flurry of Boston power-play goals doomed them, Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks tightened up and turned the tables on the Bruins. Kane scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 3:16 left in the third period and had an assist, and the Blackhawks beat Boston 3-1 on Sunday afternoon. Kane scored on a screened shot from just inside the left point to put Chicago ahead 2-1 with Bostons Zdeno Chara off for highsticking Brandon Saad, getting a double-minor for drawing blood. Brent Seabrook added a goal from the right circle on a screened shot with 1:05 remaining „ and 11 seconds after the second portion of Charas penalty had lapsed „ as the Blackhawks ended Bostons sixg ame winnin g streak and their own two-game slide. Artem Anisimov scored Chicagos first power-play goal as the Blackhawks went 2 for 5 with the man advantage on Sunday. In a 7-4 loss at Boston on Saturday, the Bruins scored four times in six chances. Nice to have that opportunity with 3 minutes left,Ž said Kane, whose goal was his 25th. I thought the power play moved it around pretty good tonight. We had some chances, had some good looks.Ž Anisimovs goal was his 20th as he reached that mark for the third straight season since the Blackhawks acquired him from Columbus. He provided a screen on Kanes goal as Chicago had men in front of Boston back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin on all three scores. Its something were always talking about,Ž Kane said. The first goal, Artie got the tip on it. On my goal, he took away the goalies eyes. All I had to do was pick a corner.Ž Anton Forsberg made 31 saves, and Jonathan Toews had three assists.

By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressWASHINGTON „ Bubble teams all across the land were keeping an eye on the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament final and Davidson, a school still waiting for its first victory in the NCAA Tournament since a guy by the name of Stephen Curry was leading the way. The Wildcats were all too happy to disappoint those other folks whose hopes hinged on their result Sunday. Freshman Kellan Gradys go-ahead baseline floater with 74 seconds left ended a nearly 13-minute drought without a field goal for Davidson, and lifted Currys alma mater to a 58-57 victory over 25thranked Rhode Island for the A-10 title. I would say, Im sorry, but Im not,Ž said smiling senior Rusty Reigel, who was a freshman the last time Davidson participated in March Madness. We won and were going dancin and I couldnt be happier for my guys and for everybody,Ž said Reigel, fiddling with a piece of the net hed just helped cut down. I just cant wait to get there next week.Ž Davidson (21-11) would not have gotten to join in the fun with a loss Sunday. Top-seeded Rhode Island (25-7), though, will be in the bracket despite coming up short in its try for a second conference tourney title in a row. That means the Rams will take a bid from someone. I know some of the teams on the bubble probably arent that happy with us right now, but were playing for something,Ž said A-10 rookie of the year Grady, who led Davidson with 17 points. Our goal is to be playing our best in March, and were really confident. Not only did we get there, but we think we can win in the tournament.Ž The Wildcats havent done that since two-time NBA MVP Curry took the 2008 squad to victories over Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin before bowing out against Kansas in the Elite Eight. This time, Davidson beat Rhode Island despite a 0-for-11 stretch that was closed by Gradys winning basket. After he made that, Rhode Island had its chances to retake the lead. Among them: A baseline jumper by Stanford Robinson missed, but Grady stepped out with 10.8 seconds remaining while grabbing the rebound. Your heart kind of drops for a second,Ž Grady said. You realize youve got to guard for 10 more seconds. But we did another unbelievable job.Ž Reigel, whose brother is an assistant to coach Bob McKillop, saw the last opportunity for the Rams this way: Pretty stressful. I was freaking out a little bit.Ž The Sun / Monday, March 12, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE FDA. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE, OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS MAY VARY. New Prostate Pill Reduces Urge to Pee Especially During the NightMen in clinical trials see dramatic improvements in nighttime bathroom urges and an overall improvement in sexual performance.Kris Stellum National Health Syndicate NHS, Boston MA „ A new prostate pill is helping men across the country regain control of their bladders and their sex lives. Innovus Pharmaceuticals, the company behind the breakthrough, says its key ingredient blocks certain hormones in the body that make your prostate grow. As a result, while taking the pill, your prostate gets smaller and your symptoms disappear. Men say the “ rst things they notice is waking up less for the bathroom and an unexpected boost in sexual performanceŽ says Dr. Bassam Damaj, Director of Science at Innovus. Its why they love the product. While most prostate drugs kill your sex life, our natural pill enhances it. Plus, it solves all the other problems. It will strengthen your stream, end your straining, and relieve the constant urge to urinateŽ. Sensational Improvements in Urinary Control and PerformanceSales for the new pill, which goes by the brand name ProstaGorx are exploding! And thats because ProstaGorx is not a drug. Its something completely different. It uses natural compounds to shrink your prostate and put the brakes on prostate growth. By taking it daily, it helps men regain control of their bladders and escape all of urinary discomfort that can make life miserable.Reverses Prostate GrowthNumerous medical studies reveal that keeping your prostate healthy is vital for avoiding urgent bathroom problems. When your prostate is small, you pee freely, forcefully, and without hesitation. You dont feel any pain, urgency or discomfort. And you feel fully relieved every time you go. But when your prostate swells, you experience just the opposite. And endless battle with annoying enlarged prostate symptoms that can linger for decades! And according to new studies, they will. A staggering 80% of men suffer with them. The most common being weak urinary streams, painful urination, dribbling and leaking, middle of the night bathroom urges, incomplete emptying, and the constant feeling of having to pee.Boosts Sexual Performance According to new research published by the Mayo Clinic, men with large prostate have less sex, lower sex drives, and consider more problems with their erections. In fact 8 out of 10 men with prostate issues end up suffering with ED! Most men have no idea that their prostate can impact their sexual performanceŽ says Dr. Damaj. The prostate gland needs to be healthy to achieve a powerful orgasm. If its enlarged, men can experience serious sexual let downs.ŽHow It WorksProstaGorx uses the same science that makes drugs like Alpha Blockers so effective but since its natural it wont give you any side effects and you wont need a prescription. As you get older your body slowly converts your remaining testosterone into estrogen through a process known as aromatase. Over the years as more testosterone is converted into estrogen, your body becomes imbalanced „ too much estrogen and too little testosterone signals your to produce DHT, a growth hormone 10 times stronger than regular testosterone. Unfortunately, instead of correcting this imbalance, the enormous spike in DHT causes your prostate to grow! As levels of DHT rise, your prostate only gets bigger...pressing hard against your bladder and clamping your urethra shut! The result is painful and persistent prostate problems that will have you living your life around a bathroom. ProstaGorx naturally shrinks your prostate using a key nutrient thats clinically p roven to block DHT. As your levels of DHT begin to fall, your prostate gets smaller and your symptoms vanish.Backed By Stunning ResearchIn a new landmark study, the leading ingredient in ProstaGorx slashed lower urinary tract symptoms by a staggering 81% and was reported to be as effective as the drug Proscar but with virtually zero side effects. And in yet another study boosted prostate health by promoting a healthy libido. Every since I retired my prostate has given me hellŽ says John Manning, 68, of Ohio. But since taking ProstaGorx everything has changed. Ive stopped waking up for the bathroom in the middle of the night. I pee a lot less during the day. And when I do go, my streams are strong and theres no hesitation. And out of nowhere my sex lifes imp roved! Ive tried everything and this is the only thing thats workedŽ. Guaranteed EffectiveProstaGorx is an exciting new prostate pill thats helping men “ nd real relief from prostate problems without any of the negative side effects from drugs. By blocking certain hormones in the body that trigger prostate growth, ProstaGorx naturally shrinks your prostate, relieving your worst symptoms safely. With daily use youll sleep more, pee less, and have much better sex. ProstaGorx is clinically proven to end the urgency and frequency, imp rove urinary ” ow and force, and give you an entirely new level of comfort that makes life easier and much more enjoyable.

They range from teams that made it into the tournament off the so-called bubble „ Alabama „ to one of the best teams in the c ountry. Arizona, a No. 4 seed in the South, has been roiled by a report that wiretaps caught coach Sean Miller discussing a $100,000 payment to freshman Deandre Ayton. Miller has strongly denied the accusation, though the story line figures to follow the Wildcats through what could be a long run in the tournament. The chairman of the NCAA selection committee, Bruce Rasumussen, has said the investigations played no part of the bracket-filling process. And yet, its hard to imagine there werent some sighs of relief in the NCAA offices when some bubble teams names were left out of the field. For instance, Louisville has lost its coach (Rick Pitino), athletic director (Tom Jurich) and latest national title (2013) in the culmination of scandals that have slammed that program for the better part of this decade.

LOUIS „ John Calipari kept telling anyone who would listen that this group of Kentucky freshmen just needed a little more time than most to figure things out. That faith was shaken when the Wildcats lost four straight games last month. But they delivered on their coachs optimism on Sunday.

Its the 31st title in tournament history for the Wildcats, whose No. 4 seed in the event was the lowest in Caliparis nine seasons at the school. The Wildcats (24-10) were one defeat away last month from what would have been the longest losing streak in the Calipari era, but they have won seven of eight since „ including their first in three tries this season against the No. 2 seed Volunteers. All in all, its a Kentucky group that appears primed for next weeks NCAA Tournament. A month ago, I wasnt sure wed be in the tournament,Ž Calipari said. And then I had to ask ... Does everybody get to go to the SEC tournament? I wasnt even sure wed get here.

He closed with a 70 „ the first time since The Barclays in 2013 that he posted all four rounds under par on the PGA Tour „ and tied for second. That was his best finish since he tied for second at that Barclays tournament, right about the time his back started to give out. Casey had gone 132 starts on the PGA Tour since winning in Houston, though he had won five times worldwide, including the European Tours flagship event at the BMW PGA Championship. He had seven top 5s in the FedEx Cup playoffs over the last three years. Someone always played better „ until Sunday. Corey Conners, the Canadian rookie who started the final round with a one-shot lead, fell back quickly after opening with a bogey on the easiest hole at Innisbrook. He shot 77 and tied for 16th. Woods looked closer than ever to winning in his remarkable return from fusion surgery on his lower back last April. Each week has been a little better. He has been a factor on Sunday the last two tournaments, and a gallery that stood 10-deep around just about every green could sense it. He just couldnt deliver after a two-putt birdie on the par-5 opening hole. I didnt feel that sharp with my iron game,Ž Woods said. I played conservatively into the green because I wasnt as sharp as yesterday. It was one of those days I kept getting half-clubs.Ž He missed birdie chances on both par 5s on the back nine, pulling a wedge into the rough at No. 11 and three-putting from 80 feet on No. 14. He missed a couple of putts in the 15-foot range. And right when it looked as though he was out of chances, he ran into the 45-foot birdie putt to keep everyone guessing. Next up for Woods is the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill next week, which he hasnt played since winning five years ago. He is an eighttime winner at Bay Hill, and the euphoria over his return is sure to reach even higher decibels. I keep getting a little bit better,Ž Woods said. I had a good shot at winning this golf tournament. A couple putts here and there, it could have been a different story.Ž Reed will look back on one putt. He opened with a 60-foot eagle putt that slammed into the pin on No. 1 and was never far from the lead, tying Casey with a bold fairway metal onto the fringe at the 14th that set up birdie. He was in the middle of the fairway on the 18th. He twirled his club when the ball was in the air. And then it all went wrong. The putt up the hill never had a chance, and when it started rolling back at his feet, Reed beckoned it with his right hand. He used a wedge on the fourth shot, knowing he had to hole it for par to force a playoff. That left Casey the winner, finally. The 40-year-old from England had reason to believe his hopes ended on Saturday when he hit into the water on the 16th and made double bogey, falling five shots behind. He answered Sunday with all eyes on someone else „ Woods „ by going out in 33, and then getting rewarded for aggressive play. He got up-and-down from a bunker short of the green at No. 11 for birdie, stuffed his approach to a foot on No. 12 and then holed a 20-foot birdie from just off the green at No. 13. Justin Rose, among six players who had a share of the lead at some point in the final round, had back-to-back bogeys on the back nine and never atoned for his mistakes. He closed with a 72 and finished three shots behind. Page 4 SP www.yoursun.com Monday, March 12, 2018 / The SunBy ROGER MOONEYTimes Staff Writer TAMPA … The Lightning currently has nine defensemen on the roster, which is more than most teams carry. But coach Jon Cooper does not see that as an excess. Its a luxury,Ž Cooper said before Saturdays 3-2 shootout win against the Canadiens. He referenced the 2015 Eastern Conference finals against the Rangers, when former Rangers and now current Lightning defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi played with ankle or foot injuries. McDonagh played the final three games of the seven-game series with a broken right foot. Girardi needed surgery on his left ankle after the series. McDonagh was playing on one leg and Girardi was playing on one leg because they didnt have enough defensemen,Ž Cooper said. When one guy is hurt, other guys have to play. Its hard for guys to sit out, but ultimately with this team our goal is to make a run in the playoffs and you need to have depth. Its not just 23 guys on the roster. It ends up being 30, and its those depth guys will help you.Ž McDonagh began Saturdays game paired with Girardi, reuniting the top defensive line from their days in New York, but Cooper said that might not be permanent. Right now, youre just trying to find who plays well together and where guys fit,Ž Cooper said. Its just good to get him in a situation where theres (13) games left. Its not a situation where (McDonaghs) playing two and then its the playoffs. Were happy with that.ŽFinding a waySaturday was the seventh time in the past eight games the Lighting went to overtime. It has won all but one of those games. While not ideal, Cooper is certainly pleased with the outcomes. You have to give credit to the guys, theyve found a way to get points and thats what you have to do,Ž Cooper said. What I liked (Saturday), we were down going in to the third and we won the third.ŽNHL: Lightning Bolts: No such things as too many defensemenAP PHOTOPaul Casey kisses the champions trophy after winning the Valspar Championship Sunday in Palm Harbor.

GOLFFrom Page 1He is part of an all-Canadian lineup at Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, and he and Hinchcliffe were strong the entire weekend. Wickens was only the third driver since 1993 to win the pole for his IndyCar debut „ Nigel Mansell did it in 93 in Surfers Paradise and Bourdais at St. Pete in 2003 „ and the victory would have been a firm announcement of his arrival in the American open-wheel series. Instead, two late cautions gave Rossi a chance to take it away. On a restart with two laps remaining, Rossi tried to dive inside of Wickens entering the first turn. The two cars made contact and Wickens spun off course. I didnt get the best restart in the world,Ž he said. I defended it a little bit, I told myself that if Alex wants to go there, go for it, but hes not going to make the corner. I gave him space on the inside and I guess he just couldnt keep it and slid into me. Its a shame.Ž Rossi was not penalized for the contact and finished third. He defended the position, which he has the right to do, but in doing so, in moving the reaction, he put me into the marbles pretty late into the corner,Ž Rossi said. I feel bad because I feel like I could have won and he could have gotten second. They made it very clear in the drivers meeting that the rule on blocking was you cant move in reaction. If he defended the inside ... and then I continued to go to the inside down the white line, then yeah, thats my decision and thats putting my car in danger. But theres no reason why I cant pop and stay next to him. I dont have to be all four wheels in the part of the track that nobody goes on.Ž The American, who recently appeared on the reality TV show The Amazing Race,Ž said he not spoken to Wickens but imagined that Wickens was upset with him. Wickens said he wanted to speak to series officials because he said the pace car procedure differed on the final restart from the previous one, and he didnt feel he was in control of the field. Bourdais, meanwhile, slid by both cars from third for the victory. We didnt have the fastest car today, but we had consistency to get podium,Ž Bourdais said. He acknowledged that his tears came at the realization of how far hes come since May, when he suffered several fractures to his pelvis and a fracture to his right hip when he crashed during qualifying for the Indianapolis 500. This one is emotional because we had to overcome a few bumps and a ball of fire and a few broken bones to come back to this victory circle,Ž said Bourdais, who completed his rehabilitation months ahead of schedule and was able to return to the IndyCar at the end of last season although doctors had said hed be out until 2018. Bourdais said he never considered not returning to racing. When I got the verdict of what was broken, it was never a question in my mind if I was going to continue,Ž he said. I guess Im glad I did continue.Ž It was the 37th career victory for the Frenchman, who ranks sixth on IndyCars all-time list. Bourdais trails Al Unser by two wins for fifth on the list. It was the sixth victory for Dale Coyne Racing, the first since Bourdais won at St. Petersburg last year. The team this year has been bolstered by the ownership group of Jimmy Vasser and James Sullivan, which reunited Bourdais with his former bosses. Wickens finished a heartbreaking 18th. The race debuted IndyCars sleek new race car that is designed to improve competition, level the playing field and cut costs. Sunday saw a race-record 366 on-track passes, breaking the mark of 323 set in 2008. Among other happenings at St. Pete:SLOPPY STARTThere was some consternation about the rookies in the field, particularly three at the front at the start of the race, because of the potential for a messy start. The slot was, indeed, not very clean. But it was the veterans who made the mistakes and IndyCar reviewed three incidents in the first nine laps of the race. Will Power spun as he raced Wickens for the lead in the first turn of the first lap. After the Power spin, Tony Kanaan spun in an incident with Zach Veach that was reviewed. Ryan Hunter-Reay also had to go immediately to pit road when his car wouldnt accelerate at the start of the race.SPIDERMANThree-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves was the grand marshal for Sundays race, his first out of IndyCar. He gave the command to start the engines while partially hanging off one of the fences in his trademark move of celebrating wins by climbing fences like Spiderman. Castroneves was moved by Team Penske this year from IndyCar to its new sports car program, but he will race in the Indy 500 in May. Not being part of the IndyCar opener was difficult for Castroneves, who found himself with odd idle time at the racetrack. Although his mood was upbeat, he was most certainly disappointed not to be racing.UP NEXTThe Phoenix Grand Prix in Arizona on April 7.

By BRYAN LEVINESports WriterPORT CHARLOTTE „ Jake Farias spring struggles continued Sunday afternoon. Faria recorded only five outs, as he totaled 48 pitches (29 in the second inning), giving up seven hits, five runs (four earned), two walks and no strike outs. Obviously its disappointing not making it through two innings when youre supposed to go four,Ž Faria said. The thing that makes me the most angry is that every time I touch a mound away from the game, Im fine. Bullpens are good. I threw on the back field the other day, and that was good. Then its just not carrying over, and thats frustrating.Ž The second inning was a rough one for Faria, as he surrendered five runs on six hits and a walk. Although three of those hits were infield singles, he was unable to put Twins hitters away. Hes not allowing himself to get in a good rhythm right now,Ž manager Kevin Cash said. Hell get there. Theres no doubt. ƒ Spring just hasnt gone his way.Ž Entering yesterdays game, Faria had made two appearances, allowing four runs in 2 ‡ innings of work. One silver lining for Faria was his tempo between pitches … an issue he specifically worked on over the last two weeks. Thats really the only plus form today, I feel like the tempo was a little better,Ž Faria said. I dont know if it was good, but it was definitely better.ŽOTHER PITCHERSSunday was a big day for Rays arms, with a total of six pitchers throwing who will (or could) see big league action in 2018. Following Farias outing, Alex Colome was on the other side of the spectrum, throwing a perfect inning with two strikeouts. I feel better today,Ž said Colome, who was ill last time he pitched on March 2. For me, right now, Im ready to go. I dont need more (outings).Ž Anthony Banda and Ryan Yarbrough each threw two scoreless innings, combining to allow just two hits. It was good to see Banda have a nice bounce-back outing,Ž Cash said. Ryan Yarbrough has done a really nice job. Both camps now … this year and last year. We have to recognize what hes doing.Ž Matt Andrieses action came in a simulated intrasquad game prior to the real game against the Twins. He threw 2 ‡ innings, allowing three hits, two runs, and a home run. He also struck out three batters on 33 pitchers (20 strikes).BIG CUT DAYThe Rays roster continues to thin out as more cuts were made this weekend. Sunday was the biggest day of cuts, in both number of players and stature of the players, as all of the teams top prospects in camp were optioned down to the minor leagues. That group of top prospects includes shortstop Willy Adames, first baseman / outfielder Jake Bauers, infielder Christian Arroyo and outfielder Justin Williams. Its a tough day for them,Ž Cash said. I think the underlying message is that we think really highly of that group, and were going to do everything we can to get them playing.Ž Following Saturdays game, infielders Jake Cronenworth and No. 12 prospect Nick Solak were sent back down to the minor leaguers. Also prior to Sundays game, pitchers Hunter Wood, Diego Castillo, Jose Mujica, Ryan Weber and Jaime Schultz along with catcher Brett Sullivan and infielder/outfielder Joe McCarthy were all informed theyll be headed back down to the minors as well. Obviously, its not a fun day,Ž Cash said. All of them made strong impressions, but its kind of that time in spring where we need to get our pitchers some reps in. Innings are a little more tough to come by.Ž The Castillo decision came as a bit of a surprise this early in the spring. Castillo, the Rays No. 29 prospect, had a strong spring prior to being reassigned. He had faced 16 batters of five scoreless innings pitched, allowing just one hit, no walks and struck out five batters. We knew coming in that we view Diego as a special pitcher,Ž Cash said. Hes going to help us here soon at the big league level.Ž Schultz didnt have the same spring he had last year, after he was arguably the most impressive pitchers for the Rays last spring. This time around, Schultz, who hasnt been the same since an earlyseason groin injury last year, had a 21.60 ERA in 1 ‡ innings pitched this spring, surrendering three walks and three hits over that time. Not quite yet,Ž Cash said on if Schultzs health has reached where it was last spring. He knows that. We know that. Schultzs spring training, we assured him there was no judgment whatsoever. He basically had a year off. ƒ This is going to allow him to get in a little more controlled setting in the minor leagues.Ž Dan Runzler was outright released on Sunday. The Rays camp roster is now down to 47 players.WE KNOW HIMMinor leaguer David Olmedo-Barrera had himself quite the day back on Saturday. Olmedo-Barrera, a member of last seasons Charlotte Stone Crabs, made the most of his two at-bats for the Rays, hitting a pair of home runs. The 23-year-old drove in four runs with the two hits, including a threerun. Go-ahead shot in the ninth. Last season with the Stone Crabs, OlmedoBarrera hit .245 with five home runs and 46 RBI in 119 games played. TWINS 6, RAYS 5HITTER OF THE GAME Carlos Gomez, Rays: The newcomer is looking more comfortable at the plate. He added a pair of singles and scored in his only two at-bats of the day. PITCHER OF THE GAME Fernando Romero, Twins:Romero tossed three perfect innings to earn a hold. He also struck out a pair of batters. Top second: The Twins scored “ ve runs in the second on “ ve singles and a walk. Erick Aybar and Miguel Sano each plated a pair of runs on their singles, and Joe Mauer drew a bases-loaded walk. PROSPECT WATCH Kean Wong, Rays: In a comeback attempt, Wong led off the ninth inning with a solo home run, bringing the tying run to the plate for the remainder of the game. THEY SAID IT Ive had bad stretches. In 2016 when I was in DoubleA, I had a similar stretch. You know its in there, but you just cant apply it.

Two people familiar with the deal tell The Associated Press that Arrieta and the Phillies have agreed to a three-year deal. AP PHOTO By ROB MAADDIAssociated PressCLEARWATER „ Two people familiar with the deal tell The Associated Press that free agent ace Jake Arrieta and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a three-year deal. Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Sunday because the contract is pending a physical. The deal is reportedly worth $75 million. NBC Sports Philadelphia first reported the agreement. The 32-year-old righty was among several top free agents who didnt get a deal for six or seven years in a changing market. The Phillies, who have plenty of money to spend, waited until the price was right for them. Arrieta won the 2015 NL Cy Young Award with the Chicago Cubs and helped them win the World Series the next season. He was 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA in 30 starts last year. Arrieta was 68-31 with a 2.73 ERA in five seasons in Chicago. Hell join Aaron Nola atop the Phillies rotation on a team that finished last in the NL East. The Phillies havent had a winning season since 2011, but now have added veteran slugger Carlos Santana, Arrieta and quality relievers to a young nucleus that could show considerable improvement over last seasons 66-96 mark.MLB: Phillies A P sources: Free agent ace Arrieta, Phillies reach 3-year deal
