PUNTA GORDA „ While work continues to repair miles of seawalls catastrophically damaged by Hurricane Irma in Punta Gorda Isles, efforts are turning toward damage in Burnt Store Isles and Harborwalk at Laishley Park. The City Council is expected to award contracts in two zones in BSI and one in Harborwalk „ totaling 23 combined projects „ to Marine Contracting Group during its upcoming meeting Wednesday. Based on the assumption that FEMA will pick up 75 percent of the tab, cost to repair seawalls in BSI is $852,283, while Harborwalk is $155,730. So far, work is ongoing in six zones in PGI, merging 415 projects. To date, three projects have been completed, according to city correspondence. Six months ago, erosion-related failure due to Hurricane Irma turned 15 miles of seawalls in PGI into rubble. BSI „ which noticed three-fourths a mile of destruction „ wasnt damaged as badly and had to wait for work to begin. A city contractor poured over 3,300 seawalls so far, according to city records. About 13,000 are needed to complete repairs. Work to replace seawalls in PGI may take 18 months and cost in the neighborhood of $30 million to $40 million. Contracts for the projects in PGI total $32.8 million and are projected to be 75 percent funded by FEMA, according to a staff report. Punta Gorda and the state will split the remaining costs at 12.5 percent „ or $4.1 million „ apiece. If overall costs increase, the citys share will, too. Staff says the city may be responsible for up to $5 million, which will cause annual assessments to increase to $75-$100 over 10 years to assist with repayment. Cost to “x seawalls in BSI ranges from $1.1 million to $1.5 million with the city responsible for up to $200,000. To cover costs, annual assessments may increase Punta Gorda to award contract for seawall repairs in BSIBy JONATHAN SCHOLLESSTAFF WRITERSEAWALL | 8Technology, transportation and mentorship are three critical needs for homeless students in Charlotte County Public Schools. To “ll the third of those gaps, the Homeless Students Gap Fund of Charlotte County is seeking volunteers to serve as mentors for homeless students. CCPS community liaison Michael Riley said the current count is at 365 homeless students, but the district normally helps up to 500 children a year. We wanted to concentrate and focus on areas that we can be helpful,Ž said Gap Fund co-founder Larry Stewart. Stewart co-founded the organization with Nancy Cwynar. The good news is that a lot of services were being covered by a lot of people (for homeless students),Ž Cwynar said, like the Back Pack Kidz, Harry Chapin and the Homeless Coalition. In this day and age, it was really hard for us to think that there were kids that didnt have certain things that they needed to be successful. So, the more we had meetings, we came to really realize that it came in three categories: technology, transportation and mentoring.ŽNew nonprofit meets needs of homeless studentsBy DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRTERSTUDENTS | 8SARASOTA „ The Sarasota County School Board meets Thursday for the “rst meeting following Tuesdays election, which will decide if the current millage rate will continue in Sarasota County. During its workshop, the board will have a discussion about the budget for the 2018-19 school year. The preliminary budget for the new school year is $452,414,593, which is an increase of $10,444,632 from the past years budget of $441,969,961. Assistant Superintendent for Finance Mitsi Corcoran will present and breakdown the budget for the upcoming school year. The current agenda attachments do not specify if the budget takes into consideration the passing of the millage rate vote Tuesday. Also on Tuesday, the Financial Advisory Committee will make its annual presentation. The presentation breaks down the funding for the district, where the money comes from, and how it affects students in the county. Tuesdays workshop also includes a discussion on the Capital Improvement Plan presented by Assistant Superintendent for Operations Scott Lempe. The board and Lempe have been discussing the CIP and how to allocate money into the safe schools initiative. Following the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Gov. Rick Scott called for district to harden schools, and provide more school resource of“cers. During the March 6 School Board meeting, Lempe presented the proposal that called for $25 million to meet the requirements set by Scott. The board was divided on the issue and how to allocate the funds. The last four items on the workshop agenda is the staff Sarasota School Board to discuss budgetBy ALEXANDRA HERRERA STAFF WRITER BUDGET | 8 TRAINING SESSIONSUpcoming Mentoring MattersŽ training sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, March 26 and Friday, March 28 at the Deep Creek Elementary School Media Center. For more information on how to become a mentor, call 941-676-2018 or email ncwynar@gapfund.org. The sessions will be at Deep Creek Elementary School Media Center, 26900 Harborview Road, Punta Gorda. What do you want to do when you grow up?Ž „ a broad and standard question that seems as vague as the response it could conjure. It is generally understood that students are encouraged to home in on realistic career goals at middle and high school levels, but educators have been pushing the same idea on elementary students. Students need to have a goal in mind for their future,Ž said Jodi Booher, reading coach for Liberty Elementary School in Port Charlotte. This drives them to be successful throughout their schooling career, both behaviorally and academically.Ž Liberty held its “rst career fair for their thirdthrough “fth-graders this school year. Some of the presenters included a “re“ghter, a sheriffs deputy, a meteorologist, a nurse and Charlotte Stone Crabs representatives, among others. This hands-on experience allowed By DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERNever too early to work on career goalsTHE BOTTOM LINEEven at the elementary school level, students need to have a goal in mind for their future, educators say. to bewant youdoWhat whenyou growup?

Students also enjoyed getting to ask their own questions, and learn from the pro. They used a Circle Map to take notes on what they learned and what they wanted to remember.Ž Liberty isnt alone in these kinds of endeavors. For example, Sallie Jones Elementary in Punta Gorda, is hosting a Community Leadership DayŽ Thursday to showcase, among other many aspects, life skills students have gained, such as public speaking and greeting people with eye contact and a “rm handshake. As the schools push the programs, both Sallie Jones and Liberty have seen Florida Department of Education grades increase between 2015 and 2017. That happened while Murdock Middle, Peace River Elementary, East Elementary and Superintendent Steve Dionisios former school, Port Charlotte High, were the only Charlotte schools to sink to a C or D in that time. Libertys career fair was just one of the schools ongoing efforts to encourage their students to think about their futures. Booher said each student has their own leadership notebook. In it, they set academic goals to work toward throughout the school year. Using graphs, students can track their progress and revisit goals at the end of each quarter. Parents are also invited in throughout the year to get involved with their students on the topic. We also have school jobs „ safety patrol, news crew, leadership Council „ that fourthand “fthgrade students can apply for,Ž said Booher. Different jobs are mentioned throughout the schools classroom curriculum, according to Booher. This allows the opportunity for conversation about the different careers. Teachers also encourage responsibility through classroom jobs.Ž In her observation, Booher said students most popular choices for a career are famous athlete or to go into the medical “eld. Liberty Principal Sheila Brown said that only a small percentage of student athletes make it to a professional level. It is very common for students to want to be famous when they grow up,Ž Brown said. Every small child dreams of being on TV or the Internet. The other options have better odds, and I believe all of our students will be college/career-ready by time they leave high school.Ž Brown said that other choices are often based on a family members occupation. After the career fair, Brown said each student wrote a paper about the career of their choice. Teachers can use that information to create lessons around each students areas of interest, creating more motivation for them to succeed. Just like any other goal, sharing and celebrating with peers and mentors increases success,Ž she said. Booher said the fair event motivated the children. Students said it was the best day ever,Ž she said. They really enjoyed learning about what their future might be.Ž A 2012 Hanover Research report pushed the introduction of career awareness as early as elementary school, as well as middle schools. Researchers found career awareness, career exploration and skill development later in life can be magni“ed through early development of the skills that will be needed for this career awareness.Ž It based some of its “ndings on studies by Carolyn Magnuson and Marion Starr, authors of How Early is Too Early to Begin Life Career Planning? The Importance of the Elementary School Years.Ž Magnuson and Starr reported that helping children to achieve selfful“llment greatly bene“ts them in their development. The Hanover report echoed Magnuson and Starr on “ve premises: € Life Career Development is a Life-Long Spiraling Process € Life Career Planning Includes a Series of Sub-Skills € Career Awareness and Career Exploration Form the Foundation for Effective Life Career Planning € Idiosyncratic Factors In”uence the Decision Making of Each Person € Child Development Theory and Career Development Theory Are Interrelated Magnuson and Starr noted that what happens at one developmental level will in”uence future levels. They believe it is the responsibility of adults with children or young adults to provide developmentally appropriate opportunities for career awareness, career exploration and the development of life careerplanning skills.Ž Another expert on the topic is John Hattie, professor of education and director of the Melbourne Education Research Institute at the University of Melbourne in Australia.

The Sun /Monday, March 19, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 Many parents and educators view homework as an important indicator of classroom rigor. The Back-to-Basic movement, which emphasizes the need for schools to teach basic academic skills in particular, has increased the emphasis on homework as a measure of a schools success. In fact, many parents and students judge the dif“culty of a course or teacher by the amount of homework assigned. Furthermore, many educators believe that asking parents to help their children with homework is a particularly effective strategy for enhancing childrens achievement. Many parents, too, agree that their involvement will make a positive difference. In a study conducted by the US Department of Education, 90 percent of parents reported that they set aside a place at home for their child to do homework, and 85 percent reported that they checked to see that homework had been completed. But does helping with homework really improve student achievement? As a high school and college teacher who has assigned homework, and a mother of two sons who were not always too enthusiastic about completing homework, I have studied the many ways that families from different income levels support their childrens academic success. I have come to believe that homework can not only enhance childrens achievement but can be a powerful opportunity for parent-child nurturing. But research also tells us that it is not just any homework assignment that will have that kind of impact. Here is what we are learning about homework.When parent involvement helpsDespite a widespread belief that parent involvement in homework is good for kids, researchers are discovering that it can have both positive and negative effects. In 2008, three researchers … Erika A Patall, Harris Cooper and Jorgianne Civey Robinson … conducted an extensive review of research on the effects on students of parent involvement in homework. They found that the effects of parent involvement appear to be strongly in”uenced by four factors: € the nature of the homework assignment € the particular involvement strategy used by the parent € the childs age and ability level € the time and skill resources in the home. The researchers found that homework assignments in which students are expected to memorize facts, and the parent is expected to teach school skills, provide less meaningful opportunities for parent and student interaction in the learning process. In contrast, homework assignments in which students choose a project that requires in-depth investigation, thought and some creative license enable meaningful parent participation. Parents can play supportive roles in discussing the project with their child, which is more enjoyable both for the child and parent. For example, students may demonstrate math skills; share ideas and obtain reactions to written work; conduct surveys or interviews; gather parents memories and experiences; apply school skills to real life; or work with parents or other family partners in new ways.Strategies for parentsIn addition, how parents help their child with homework appears to have distinct effects on student achievement. Most parents engage in a wide variety of involvement strategies, such as creating school-like routinesŽ in which they make rules about when, where or how homework is done. They also interact with the teacher about homework and provide general oversight or monitoring of homework completion. In some instances, parents control these structures; in others, parents follow the students lead. For instance, parents may engage in the learning processes with the child (eg, engage in homework tasks with the child or in processes that support the childs understanding of homework). Parents may also help their child learn self-management skills (eg, coping with distractions). The strategies that parents use may vary depending on their beliefs about child-rearing and broader cultural values. Yet these different parent involvement strategies appear to have distinct effects on student achievement. Strategies that support a childs autonomy and also provide structure in the form of clear and consistent guidelines appear to be the most bene“cial. For example, in a 2001 study, researchers reported that parent homework involvement that supported autonomy was associated with higher standardized test scores, class grades and homework completion. In contrast, direct aid (doing the homework for the student) was associated with lower test scores and class grades. In another study, parent involvement in homework was reported by students to have a detrimental effect if the parent tried to help without a request from the child or was perceived as intrusive or controlling by the child.Age mattersResearchers have also noted that the age and ability level of a child strongly in”uenced the amount of help with homework that parents provided and its subsequent bene“ts to the child. Parents reported spending more time helping their elementary-age children with homework than their secondary schoolage children. Parents of low-ability students reported spending more time helping with homework than did parents of high-ability students. While teachers and parents of elementary-aged children were more likely to work together to help students complete their assignments, parents of secondary school students often did not monitor their adolescents homework as faithfully as when their children were younger. As a result, low-ability students in middle and high school were less likely to complete homework or to achieve academically. Homework is a daily activity for most students that takes time, energy and emotion, not only for students but for their families as well. Given these investments, it is important that homework be a more bene“cial learning experience, in which parents too can bring their interesting and enriching skills.Homework enhances student achievementBy ELLEN AMATEAUNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA If the thought of calculating a tip at a restaurant makes you nervous, then you are not alone. Math anxiety is common worldwide. Math anxiety can lead to poor performance and also deter people from taking math courses. This is because feelings of anxiety can tie up important cognitive resources (known as working memory), which are needed for solving math problems. But why are some people more math-anxious than others? And is there a link between parents math anxiety and their childrens math anxiety? As researchers who study the role of cognitive and emotional factors in achievement, these are some of the questions that my colleagues and I have been examining. We “nd that when parents with math anxiety help with homework, it could have a negative impact on their kids.Social factors contribute to math anxietyMath anxiety can start early. Children as young as six can experience varying degrees of math anxiety which is linked to poor math achievement. While research suggests that some people are predisposed to develop math anxiety, and that there may be a genetic component to this predisposition, the social factors that can lead someone to develop math anxiety are also important to understand. In our study, we examined the link between parents math anxiety and their childrens math anxiety and math achievement. We assessed the math anxiety and math achievement levels of 438 “rstand second-grade children at both the beginning and the end of the school year. We assessed their parents math anxiety level. We also assessed how often they helped their children with their math homework. Our research demonstrated that when parents are highly-math-anxious, their children learn signi“cantly less math (over one-third of a grade level less than their peers in math achievement across the school year) and have more math anxiety by school-years end. But this is only if parents provide frequent math homework help. When highly mathanxious parents dont help their children very often with their math homework, their children are unaffected by their parents anxiety.How parents transfer anxietyWhy does the homework help of highly mathanxious parents back“re? We cant say for certain why the homework help of highly math-anxious parents back“res, leading their children to learn less math and be more math anxious than their peers, but we believe that there are a number of possible reasons. First, when helping with their childrens math homework, highly math-anxious parents may be expressing their own dislike of math, perhaps saying things like math is hardŽ or some people are simply not math people.Ž Finally, highly mathanxious parents may become ”ustered when their childrens teachers use novel strategies that parents themselves never learned. We believe that being exposed to negative attitudes about math and confusing instruction from parents might cause children to lose con“dence in their math abilities and to invest less effort into learning math, resulting in lower math achievement by the end of the year.Couldnt this just be genetics?While I mentioned earlier that there is a genetic link between math anxiety of parents and their children, our research indicates that parents have more than just a genetic in”uence on their childrens math outcomes. If genetics were the only factor at play, then we would have seen that parents with higher math anxiety would also have children displaying similar anxiety. They would also have lower math achievement as compared to their peers. But that was not what we found. Rather, it was speci“cally in the case of children whose highly math-anxious parents helped them often with math homework that we saw this trickling down of parents math anxiety. Thus, while genetics may be part of the equation, it is certainly not the entire story.How can children be supportedThis research highlights the need for researchers and educators to work together to develop more effective tools to help parents „ especially those who are anxious „ support their childrens math success. These tools may come in the form of worksheets, apps, and games. Fortunately, there are a number of research-based strategies that can be very useful in helping children and parents deal with their math anxiety. My favorite strategy is a simple, inexpensive, and very effective tool called expressive writing. To use this strategy, students simply have to write about their worries regarding an upcoming math test (for example by answering the question Explain in detail how this upcoming math test makes you feelŽ) for about seven minutes before they take the test. This straightforward act of writing actually causes students to perform better on the math test than what they would have performed had they not written at all. While it is true that even the best-intentioned parents may contribute to their childs anxiety and lower achievement, the good news is that simple strategies, like expressive writing, can go a long way in helping children combat the negative effects of math anxiety. Success in math requires more than just ability. It is also about developing the right attitude.Parenting skills affect kids success in mathBy ERIN A.

It repeated itself 10 minutes later with a “nal bang. The CCSO con“rmed a weapon had been “red and police were investigating. Mondays front page reported an AR-15 shooting in the neighborhood. This time it wasnt a school, nor a concert, nor a church, but my neighborhood. Laws may turn our schools into prisons, but are we any safer? Im sitting behind Rep. Grant at San Antonios Christmas pageant where our grandchildren are performing; did anyone install the metal detectors? Check the handbags? Far-fetched, but conceivable. While not a gun owner, I can appreciate the more level playing “eld when you are 4 feet, 11 inches, 107 pounds, and a victim of assault, as I was many years ago. Last weeks editorial column written by a woman being stalked re-af“rms our right to defend ourselves. And hunting can be a passion. My issue is with military weapons in a civilian population. You dont have to be mentally ill, over 18, or have previous run-ins with the police to do great harm. And you dont have to be skilled to kill. Soft targets exist throughout our society and I am angry at the thought we are turning ourselves into an armed camp. President Trump had it right: the NRA has emasculated our legislators to the point they are spineless. Assault weapons and large-capacity magazines need to be banned. Its just common sense.Avice Sunter Port CharlotteEditor: What happened to the polka band that played at Gilchrist Park? We enjoyed listening to them from different states and Canada playing the same songs. They just played during the snowbird season would be nice to bring them back.Judy Milosch Punta GordaEditor: The 17 dead and many more wounded at Stoneman Douglas High School need justice and they need it swiftly. The accusedŽ wants a plea deal, no execution so he can live out his life with three meals a day, TV, exercise yard and probably afternoon snacks. Im sorry, but the trial should have already taken place. Is he guilty „ yes. Lets not have some long, drawn-out trial that could go on for days, weeks, months and years. I dont hear that he did it because he was denied cookies in the third grade or that he has a funny haircut. He needs to be executed now, and not by laying on a gurney and given a sedative to go to sleep. He needs to suffer pain. God only knows how much he has in”icted on countless lives. From the middle ages I think drawn and quartered sounds about right.Don Plitnick Punta GordaEditor: The president of the United States has, in past weeks, referred to a black elected of“cial as having a low grade IQ,Ž to distinguished NBC reporter Chuck Todd as an SOB,Ž and to Sen. Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas.Ž These insults are consistent with President Trumps hateful rhetoric during the 2016 presidential campaign in which he used disparaging terms for each of his opponents. Editor: So today starts with Womens March Madness run. Do I have a brackets sheet from your paper? No, again. What is with you guys?Ž Oh yeah, thats it. You guys! Thanks for nothing.Sally Russell EnglewoodEditor: This is the fourth year of watching “lthy water coming down the Peace River west of the Interstate 75 bridge. It originates upriver and can be conspicuously turned on and off, allowing for brief and pristine moments when we can see the absence of life where it was once abundant. Some of the species previously seen daily that are now rare or completely absent include dolphins, Atlantic rays, cownose rays, sheepshead, Atlantic spade“sh, pelicans and many wading birds. I have learned from FWC Research Institute that the river is now labeled impairedŽ but there is no information as to why. In December, the Sun printed a local map of the occurrence of red tide unexpectedly showing highest concentrations within Charlotte Harbor and lesser amounts in the surrounding offshore waters. This strongly suggests that conditions within the harbor were responsible for this red tide explosion. I found sick and dead ducks on the beach in front of my home that the Peace River Wildlife Center said were casualties of this red tide that had already killed many other ducks. The river here went from being clear and clean to Editor: Would someone please tell the lady from Deep Creek that she is ignorant regarding a military ri”e. Military ri”es are not automatic. They are semi-automatic, just like the AR-15. I carried a military ri”e through four years in the Marine Corps and I can assure you it was not an automatic weapon. The Sun should have screened this letter before printing since it just illustrates the amount of ignorance out in the general public regarding the gun issue and the NRA.Tom Burkhart Punta GordaEditor: Our president admits to inventing trade de“cits to sway Canadian PM Justin Trudeau. He brags about it to fans who seem to know no better. The next day subordinates plump-up available statistics to support the presidents cavalier misfeasance. One is reminded of T.S. Eliot: We are the hollow men. We are the straw men. ƒ Our dried voices ƒ Are quiet and meaningless, As wind in dry grass.Ž It always seems so. We have heard so much from this president that is wrong by virtue of his ignorance of history and government, that there is little reason to believe anything he says.Rich Weingarten Port CharlotteEditor: Beware the we know bestŽ push for higher buildings. Punta Gorda is a small-scaled city and should stay that way. Our open parks, palms and good sidewalks for walkers and bikers still please locals and beckon visitors to a pleasant sunny Florida without overcrowding, poor parking and too much traf“c. Realize we are really going to be scrunched from higher skylines and traf“c clogs to our north and much denser residential and commercial growth to our south. Some small-scaled development here is “ne if it preserves the rare quality here. Big citi-“cation pushed by some just going through the motions of citizen input is like a tumor threatening a brain. Port Charlotte has just looked its Sunseeker gift horseŽ in the mouth, not considering the mess and stench inevitable daily from the other end.Richard Colvard Punta GordaFishery project in Placida put on holdOUR POSITION: Redevelopment proposal in West County should be scaled back.After more than 200 people turned out to oppose a major mixed-use development at the Fishery property in Placida last month, the Charlotte County Planning and Zoning Board voted against the proposal „ which seemed the proper response. The Planning Board has no concrete authority in the matter. Members votes are advisory only; “nal decisions are up to the County Commission. But the 4-0 vote sent a clear message: The project, as planned, was on shaky ground. Thats why developers subsequently decided against moving ahead immediately to the County Commission. They took a continuance, which gives them time to rethink their strategy, rework the project, drop it altogether or, we suppose, plunge forward later. They did the right thing. At best, this project should be scaled back, preferably with real input from local community groups, which are not only well-organized but legally well-equipped. The Fishery is a romantic vestige of Old FloridaŽ on the Gasparilla Sound near the Boca Grade Causeway in West County. Once a center of the “shing industry in Charlotte Harbor „ the place “shing boats dropped off their catch „ the property is now home to a restaurant, art galleries and boutiques, a dock used by charter “shing businesses, and small, “shingrelated businesses. The place is funky and charming. The waterfront is beautiful, which made it a prime target for tourism or secondhome re-development. Earlier development there was held back by the recession and property ownership issues. For years, it seemed, it was simply a matter of time before changes came. This proposed change was dramatic, though. Too much, really, in this particular spot. The property owner and developer wanted to take the 13 acres and build a mixed-use development with 3,250 square feet of retail space, a 5,920-square-foot restaurant, a marina, a 40-room hotel and three condominium buildings containing 148 units. Critically, condo building height would have been 65 feet, well above the 35 feet permitted in the countys Coastal High Hazard Area. Density also would have been increased greatly. The taller height and greater density is permitted under circumstances „ designated in a transfer of development rights system that would keep other property in the area free of development. Developers and county planning staff argued much of this property was zoned for industrial use, which opened it up for other lessdesirable uses. They also argued additional public bene“t came from concessions in open space and construction of a marina, a portion of which would be open to the public. But that seemed a stretch. The drawings provided by the developer just made the whole thing seem too big for this spot. The height and size contradicted principles contained in the nonbinding Placida Community Plan, as well as an agreement 10 years ago known as the coastal compromise.Ž Public concessions that were to come in return for additional height, seemed inadequate. And then came the groundswell of community opposition. Perhaps there is room for compromise. Its unrealistic to expect the Fishery will stay as is „ although many, no doubt, would like that „ but something smaller seems more appropriate. That President Trump chooses to do this is alarming but comes as no surprise. He has been eerily consistent in his willingness to shame, de“le and bully others. What is disturbing, and what causes those of us who “nd such insults appalling, is the reaction of his campaign crowds when he says these things. That so many good Americans „ dads, moms, grandparents, aunts, uncles „ would cheer gleefully when the president blithely insults others is atrocious. During the presidential campaign, Secretary Clinton referred to these cheering people as deplorable,Ž a label which some Trump supporters now wear with pride. Clintons comments, for which she later apologized, were imprecise. People who applaud such disturbing behavior may, or may not be, themselves deplorable. Their enthusiastic endorsement of such language is, however, by any standard, deplorable and profoundly disturbing. I dream that at a future Trump rally, a participant „ perhaps a loving grandmother „ will rise up during the ruckus and call out in full voice: Enough, Mr. President. Enough.ŽVicki Welsch Punta Gordavery dirty four years ago. This muck comes down daily. Why is something that has turned this area into a dead zone allowed to continue year after year?

The Sun /Monday, March 19, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINTWe learn how the world works in many ways. Culture, religion, art and philosophy are all sources of information. However, there are signi“cant con”icts that exist in each of these areas. When we encounter someone with different interpretations, we are confronted with the reality that there are other ways of viewing the world. We might try to ignore those differences or try to change the other persons beliefs. We may even turn to violence against individuals or war between groups. These methods dont resolve differences. Rather, they encourage us to maintain a limited world view instead of expanding our horizons. That is, we dont re-write a holy book or repaint a work of art. These ways of knowing about the world highlight differences rather than resolve them. Science is a different way of knowing. Rather than simply accept prevailing wisdom/common sense, it requires evidence in the form of empirical data. If the data challenges widely held beliefs, then its the beliefs that need to be modi“ed. Like other human endeavors, science may go down a blind alley. However, science has evolved processes designed to self-correct when errors occur. Research published in scienti“c journals gives detailed descriptions of what was done, whom it was done to, what data was collected, how it was analyzed and what conclusions the researcher drew from the study. Before publication, other experts in that area review and comment on the research. Once any necessary revisions are made, the study is published where anyone with an interest in the subject can read about it. Research that produces new, unexpected or controversial “ndings usually leads others to try to replicate the study or present alternative explanations of the “nding. This leads to further research that helps resolve the differences. These safeguards can fail initially. A tragic example helps make clear that even when this happens, science works to correct the error. In 1998, an article was published in the respected British Medical Journal, The Lancet, with Andrew Wake“eld, a medical doctor and researcher, as the lead author. It suggested that there was a link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and the occurrence of certain intestinal diseases and autism. Autism is recognized as a spectrum of neurological/ development disorders affecting social relations, communications and producing unusual behaviors. It ranges from mild to profound. Autism has a devastating impact on the child and the family. There had been a dramatic rise in the number of cases of autism in the preceding decade which led to considerable research seeking causal factors. Wake“elds report, although viewed as preliminary by professionals, went viral (as wed say today) among families and researchers (and lawyers) with an interest in autism. The impact was further multiplied by Wake“elds public call to discontinue use of the MMR Vaccine pending further research. This led to a decline in vaccination rates and increased the number of cases of measles and mumps „ both of which can be fatal. The Lancet article was noted as an early reportŽ meaning preliminary. Only 12 children were studied. Other researchers have looked for the connection Wake“eld reported. They have been unable to reproduce those “ndings. Further, Japan had discontinued using the MMR vaccine in 1993, yet the number of reported cases of autism continued to climb, contradicting the alleged role of the MMR vaccine in autism. Today, the most likely explanation for the increase in reported cases seems to be heightened awareness of the disorder and re“nements in diagnostic methods. In effect, science worked the way it was supposed to. Yet, the controversy about the MMR vaccine continues to simmer, even being resurrected by Donald Trump in his 2016 presidential campaign. What of Dr. Wake“eld? Results from preliminary reports are frequently not supported by further investigations. This is a different case. The report was apparently a deliberate fraud. For details, look up Andrew Wake“eldŽ on Wikipedia. Summarizing, multiple media investigations reveal that the research was initiated by a group seeking to sue the manufacturers of the vaccine. Wake“eld allegedly received over $500,000 from the attorneys who also recruited many of the children in the study. He had also “led a patent on his own vaccine invention. The Lancet wouldnt have published the article had these serious con”icts of interest been known. It has since retracted the article. Ten of the 12 co-authors have withdrawn support. Further, the children in the study had been subjected to painful/invasive medical procedures without the proper ethical review board oversight. Wake“eld has also been accused of ignoring data that contradicted his hypothesis. For these and other reasons, the British General Medical Council stripped him of the right to practice medicine. For his part, Wake“eld has “lled multiple libel suits. They have all been dismissed before going to trial. Ed Conrad of Punta Gorda has a doctorate in clinical psychology. He taught college for three decades, retiring in 2011 as a clinical professor emeritus from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

On Tuesday, it will hear oral arguments concerning the constitutionality of measures that Californias government has taken to compel pro-life entities to speak against their own mission. Crisis pregnancy centers are nonpro“t facilities usually owned and operated by people with religious objections to abortion. Some centers are licensed medical facilities providing pregnancy testing, ultrasound examinations, medical referrals, prenatal vitamins, etc. Other centers are unlicensed because they provide only nonmedical services (self-administered pregnancy testing kits, parenting preparation training, baby clothes, diapers, etc.). A 2015 California law requires licensed pregnancy crisis centers to tell clients (in pamphlets, in waiting-room signs) this: California has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services (including all FDA-approved methods of contraception), prenatal care and abortion for eligible women.Ž Unlicensed centers are required to notify clients that the center is not licensed as a medical facility by the state of California and has no licensed medical provider who provides or directly supervises the provision of services.Ž So, government compels licensed centers to provide free advertisements for government-provided abortions. And government compels unlicensed centers to say „ in large fonts, in as many as 13 languages, even on their own websites „ that they do not have medical providers that the government itself says, by not requiring them to be licensed, are not necessary for the services they provide. The governments obvious nasty purpose is to make the unlicensed centers clients unnecessarily uneasy. California tailored the law to target only crisis centers: It exempts from the compelled speech requirements all womens health services providers that dispense abortifacients. The crisis centers are incorporated as religious organizations and their mission is dictated by the content of their beliefs. The pro-choice government is targeting the centers to exercise one-sided in”uence on some womens choices. The Cato Institutes Ilya Shapiro, author of an amicus brief supporting the crisis centers, says it is telling that California has no comparable law requiring abortion providers to post advertisements for adoption agencies or other alternatives to abortion. Neither the 2015 laws legislative history nor the states brief in defense of the law provides any evidence for the states charge that the centers confuse,Ž misinformŽ or otherwise harm women. And the law clearly has nothing to do with ensuring informed consent by clients of the pregnancy crisis centers. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, whose reasoning is frequently novel and whose rulings are frequently reversed, upheld Californias law on the ground that government often can regulate the practice-related speech of professionals it licenses. The Supreme Court has never embraced this carve-out from the First Amendment, which would give government an open-ended power to require whomever the government deems a professionalŽ to communicate whatever message the government favors. Pro-choice defenders of Californias patently content-based and discriminatory law should consider the following. Suppose a pro-life state government were to require all publicly and privately funded abortion providers to advertise on their premises the locations and services of crisis pregnancy centers. Or even to post the following accurate information on their premises, websites and advertisements: Eighteen days after conception, the unborn babys brain begins to form. At about three weeks, the heart begins to beat, circulating the babys blood. At six weeks, brain waves are detectable and at seven weeks, the baby is kicking. By week nine, the baby can suck his or her thumb and move his or her head. From weeks ten through 13, bones harden and teeth, “ngerprints and “ngernails begin to form. At 26 weeks, the spinal cord and pain receptors are in place for pain transmission to the brain.Ž A pro-life governments point in compelling the placement of this factual notice would be not just to inform women contemplating having an abortion but to incline them against doing so. The abortion providers would be compelled to disseminate a message contrary to their beliefs about the morality of abortion. This would be (as Shapiro says of Californias compelled-speech law targeting the crisis centers) government putting its thumb on the scale in a social debate, by conscripting individuals to help spread a particular message.Ž As the Supreme Court has held, freedom of speech means freedom to choose what to say „ and what not to say. The pregnancy crisis centers have a right that Californias bullying government also has and that it would do well to exercise more often: the right to remain silent. George Wills email address is georgewill@ washpost.com.Freedom of speech includes right to remain silent George Will In a rare expression of self-awareness, President Trump admitted „ nay, boasted „ that he just makes stuff up. Recounting a recent meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump says Trudeau told him that the U.S. has no trade de“cit with Canada, whereupon Trump essentially said, Yes, we do whereupon Trudeau said, No you dont Heres the hitch: Trump didnt really know whether his claim was true. He was ”ying by the seat of his pants, bluf“ng, playing the wise guy on a wacky little whim all his own. He bragged as much in a speech during a private, fundraising event in Missouri last week. Such a character, that guy. But what was Trump thinking during the alleged meeting? Was he pulling Trudeaus leg? Was he curious to see how it would feel to toss out a whopper and see how it landed? Trudeau came to see me. Hes a good guy, Justin,Ž Trump told his audience. He (Trudeau) said, No, no, we have no trade de“cit with you, we have none. Donald, please.Ž Trump apparently mimicked Trudeaus voice, according to audio obtained by The Washington Post. Nice guy, good-looking guy, comes in „ Donald, we have no trade de“cit. Hes very proud because everybody else, you know, were getting killed. ƒ So, hes proud. I said, Wrong, Justin, you do. I didnt even know. ƒ I had no idea. I just said, Youre wrong. You know why? Because were so stupid. ƒ And I thought they were smart. I said, Youre wrong, Justin. He said, Nope, we have no trade de“cit. I said, Well, in that case, I feel differently, I said, but I dont believe it. I sent one of our guys out, his guy, my guy, they went out, I said, Check, because I cant believe it.Ž Believe it. The truth is the U.S. had a trade surplus with Canada to the tune of $2.8 billion in goods and services in 2017, according to the U.S. Commerce Department. But facts seem neither an attractant nor a deterrent to Trump, who at times reminds me of Don Quixote, the “ctional knight-errant of 17th-century Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes. Quixote had read a few too many books of chivalry and, owing to some deterioration of his mental faculties, fancied himself a knight in shining armor. Like the president, he would make up stuff or imagine, for example, that ordinary windmills were giants to be slayed. Hence the expression tilting at windmills.Ž Imagining enemies where none exist „ or failing to recognize a proper foe and treat him accordingly „ is an entertaining “ctional device. But such deliriums are far less amusing in a world leader whose vision of his own grandeur often cloud both his judgment and perceptions. But, thats not all, folks. Not only did Trump invent the trade de“cit, he also may have made up the meeting itself. According to Canadas National Post, Trudeaus government isnt sure which meeting Trump was referencing. There may have been a telephone conversation or two along those lines, or, quite possibly, Trump created a composite scenario drawn from both meetings and conversations. This brings us to a new black hole in the fact-checking universe. Not only do weary researchers have to check Trumps facts,Ž but now they also have to check his facts about “ctions. If the meeting didnt actually take place „ and the claim about the trade de“cit was fantastic in the correct sense „ then what is one ever to believe from this president? And what sorts of ruminations might Trump be conjuring in anticipation of his proposed meeting with North Koreas Kim Jong Uns entertainment? Perhaps Trump will tease that hes pulling back American troops along the Demilitarized Zone in exchange for his hair stylists contact info. (That would be amusing, come to think of it.) One might be inclined to dismiss Trumps relatively harmless tale as poetic license in the tradition of story-telling. Its doubtful that anyone at the fundraiser cared whether the meeting was real or some variation thereof. Whats concerning is: (1) the presidents admission that he made stuff up; (2) didnt bother to bone up on our trade relationship with Canada before challenging Trudeau; and (3) seemingly doesnt give a damn. In mathematics, as I vaguely recall, a double negative makes a positive. In other words, two minuses are a plus. Maybe Trump “gures hes entitled to the same sort of calculation. In the fantasy-“lled mind of a “ction-prone president, willfully making a false claim in a meeting that didnt happen comes out to a plus. Then he can boast a great, big, beautiful double-whammy.

FROM PAGE ONETheir plan was to provide technology to students through the form of Chromebooks, which they would pay for and provide. We thought we could get laptops to the kids pretty easily; its proven to be the case,Ž said Stewart. The next step was providing mentoring for the students, which Stewart explained was a more challenging task because it counts on volunteers in the community to support the program. It doesnt just happen,Ž he said, you have to go out and recruit these people.Ž Stewart explained the third effort is transportation, which began as an idea of providing bicycles and a larger plan with mini-buses provided by the school, but they have currently put that effort on hold because CCPS has the idea that there is money coming in the budget in the future (for proper transportation for homeless students).Ž As per the McKinneyVento Act, said CCPS social worker Sheila Lecrete, the district provides transportation to students who are in a homeless situation in order to allow them to remain at their school of origin, which is the school they were attending when they became homeless. Students who live within two miles of their school, however, dont have the advantage of transportation. If a student lives within two miles of the school they are attending, like any other student, they are not eligible for transportation. That was the case with (a) girl who got (a) bike to help with early morning rides. Filling these three gaps, though, arent the only effort of the Gap Fund. Lecrete mentioned two CHS students who were looking to graduate but were worried that they couldnt do so because they couldnt afford the fees. I met with both of them,Ž said Lacrete, theyre two brothers. I explained to them that (because of the Gap Funds fee donation) they were not only going to get to graduate but get to participate in the senior activities and they were speechless and then they were asking who can I say thank you to.Ž There are different potential fees associated with the graduation, according to Lecrete. Students who can afford it have the opportunity to participate in senior prom, grad bash (for Universal Studios), “eld day and receive a yearbook, among other opportunities. All students,Ž she said, however, who complete graduation requirements will graduate. Some students are not involved in all activities, but its nice to be able to offer it to them. It really makes a difference in their lives.Ž The Gap Fund helps to allow the districts most needy students to participate in activities of which they would normally be left out. Many of the Gap Funds donations are facilitated by Renee Rebhan of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. On top of covering the fees, the Gap Fund provided Chromebooks for both brothers. The Chromebooks are the students personal computers to take with them for online classes and homework assignments. We use our funds (at the Homeless Coalition) for all sorts of different crisis stuff,Ž said Rebhan. So the Gap Fund being able to do these things for us that we arent able to do has been a tremendous blessing.Ž For funding, Cwynar explained that there are four bucketsŽ of focus: the “rst is grant writing, the second is corporate sponsors, the third is high net worth individuals, and the fourth relies on civic associations such as Kiwanis, the Elks Clubs, the Lions Club and Rotary Club. She said, We have people in our community that have cocktail fundraisers for us and you know they give matching funds and are very generous with us to be able to bankroll us in our early stages so that we dont have to rely on some of the other sources that might be a little more dif“cult.Ž The Gap Funds most crucial effort at this time is the inclusion of more volunteer mentors. Mentors receive 12-16 hours of training and are asked for a one-hour per week commitment for two years. Upcoming Mentoring MattersŽ training sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, March 26 and March 28 at Deep Creek Elementary School Media Center.

The Sun /Monday, March 19, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSSARASOTA „ With one incumbent Sarasota County commissioner declaring his intention to not seek a second term, the open seat is drawing interest from several candidates interested in succeeding Commissioner Paul Caragiulo. Earlier this year, Caragiulo announced his intention of stepping down from the County Commission when his term ends in November, instead of seeking a second term. His decision started the dominoes lining up, ensuring at the moment, there will be at least one primary race in June to select a candidate for the District 2 seat on the commission. Almost simultaneously with Caragiulos announcement, Christian Ziegler, the husband of School Board member Bridget Ziegler, announced his intention to run for the seat. Zieglers announcement came with an endorsement from Caragiulo. Ziegler has long been involved in the Republican Party, serving as a state committeeman, and executive director of the Republican Party of Sarasota County from 2011-2012. He was also an elector for President Donald Trump. Ziegler faces a challenge from Alexandra Coe, who has also filed with the Supervisor of Elections to seek the open seat. Coe ran for the District 2 seat in 2014 but was defeated in the Republican primary by Caragiulo. Coe has also previously run for the county charter review board, and the state legislature this year, seeking the seat being vacated by Alex Miller. Ziegler and Coe, along with any other potential Republican candidates, will face off in the Aug. 28 primary election. On the Democratic Party side, Ruta Maria Jouniari, a small business owner, small farmer and health care advocate. Jouniari, who has lived in Sarasota for 20 years, filed her paperwork this past Thursday to seek the District 2 seat. Earlier this year, she challenged Margaret Good for the State House District 72 seat vacated by Miller. In the race for the District 4 seat, incumbent Commissioner Alan Maio, who filed his intention to seek a second term in December, currently faces a party challenge with a Democratic challenger waiting in the wings. A former county planning commissioner, Maio was first elected to the county commission in 2014. Challenging him for the Republican nomination is longtime community activist Lourdes Ramirez of Siesta Key. Ramirez is a longtime member of the Siesta Key Association and the Council of Neighborhood Associations. In early February, Wesley Beggs, a 10-year resident of Sarasota, filed her paperwork with the elections office, seeking to challenge Maio. The owner of a marketing and media agency, Beggs has been involved in many community service projects according to her candidate statement. This is her first run for public office. District 2 includes the Sarasota County portion of Longboat Key, then runs in a southeasterly direction between a portion of Fruitville Road to the north and Bee Ridge and Clark Roads, and State Route 72 to the south. District 4 includes Siesta Key and most of the area between State Road 72 and Laurel Road with the Myakka River State Park as the eastern boundary.

She retired from the service in 2003 as an Air Force master sergeant after years of service in the Middle East during the first Persian Gulf War in 1991. She was an Air Force brat. Her father was a B-17 bomber pilot shot down on a bombing mission over occupied Greece in World War II. He spent the better part of two years in a Luftwaffe POW camp in Germany until wars end. After 40 years in the service, he retired as a lieutenant colonel. Married at 16, Barbara was a divorced mother with two children by the age of 20. I was working for a Realtor and home builder in Savannah, Georgia, where I grew up. It was 1975, just at the time of the Mayaguez incident. Not many people today will probably remember the American freighter and crew that got captured,Ž she said. I got so upset over their capture and just snapped.Ž The capture of the freighter SS Mayaguez was the last official battle of the Vietnam War. More than 40 Americans were killed in the battle and a helicopter crash associated with it. One of my friends told the recruiter for the 165th Airlift Wing Georgia Air National Guard I might be a likely prospect for the Guard. When the sergeant called me I told him, Sergeant, how quickly can you be at my office?Ž Within one hour, he was there and signed her up for the Guard. She took the entrance exam for joining the military and passed with flying colors. The better part of a year later, after a considerable amount of technical training, she became a digital equipment repair expert. The guard outfit operated a couple of vans full of punch card equipment, forerunner to computers. It was Vaughns job to keep the machines operational. When she was sworn into the guard in Savannah, because she was so well known around town, it became a local happening attended by many of the locals. A reporter from The Jacksonville Times Union newspaper covered the event. The next morning the paper had this headline on the front page of the local section: Divorced mother of 2 joins guard.Ž I became Enemy No. 1 for recruiters all over the country,Ž Vaughn recalled. The last thing they wanted was a bunch of divorced mothers signing up for the guard.Ž After basic training, she spent 10 months at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas learning her job. My children and I lived in a little apartment off base. I was in a classroom from 6 a.m. until noon,Ž she said. One of my neighbors saw to it that my children got on the school bus every day. I was home when they got out of school in the afternoon. We had a lovely year at Sheppard. Every weekend my kids and I were in this rattletrap car I bought for $300 exploring the territory,Ž Vaughn recalled. One day a notice on my computer said they were starting a new Air National Guard unit at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa. Since my parents had retired to the Venice area I decided thats where I wanted to be. I came down to MacDill and checked out the new outfit at Christmas time. I became one of the first 25 people to join the 290th Joint Communications Support Squadron. I became the PR person for the new unit.  After finishing her first tour with the National Guard, Vaughn went to work for Central Command that operates out of MacDill, too. Central Command oversees U.S military activities in the Middle East. At that point I transferred from the Air National Guard to the Air Force Reserves and was assigned to Communications Security,Ž she said. We managed the secret orders and distributed them to the right people.Ž While working this post, Vaughn was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal. The award was for findings thousands of dollars of Air Force material scattered all over the Middle East. She went to Kuwait before the Gulf War in 1991 known as Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. At one point she worked as a spokeswoman. In May 1991 she went to work for the Chief of the Office of Military Cooperation located in the embassy in Kuwait. She did more public relations. Later on, she took a civilian job in 1992 working for the Office of Military Contracts in Iraq. The main thing we did was oversee military contracts between American companies and the government of Kuwait,Ž she said. I spent five years in Kuwait. Then I returned to the U.S., to Homestead Air Reserve Base in Florida and joined the 482nd Fighter Wing U.S. Air Force Reserve. There I became a chaplains assistant. I gave cultural briefings to pilots and maintenance support people who were about to go to the Middle East. I told them how not to get themselves in trouble when they went into town over there,Ž Vaughn explained. I spent a year in Homestead. In 2003, at the start of the Second Gulf War. I sat there in my office watching TV and decided I had to go to Iraq,Ž she said. I told my boss, the wing commander, I wanted to go to Iraq. He didnt want me to go. I told him, In December my current enlistment was up. Ill retire and then go to Iraq and get a civilian job. Every day I was on my computer looking for a job there. After a year of looking for an opening I got a call from Baghdad and the Joint Contracting Command. I handled paperwork for U.S. personnel. I worked a year for the Joint Contracting Command as a Department of Defense civilian. Then a young lady with the State Department wooed me away with higher pay and more benefits. I went to work for the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office in Baghdad. I did administrative work and prepared briefings. I moved the American Embassy located in what used to be the Republican Guard Palace, a huge facility in the Green Zone in Baghdad,Ž Vaughn said.

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 19, 2018 STATE NEWSMIAMI „ Of“cials were so concerned about the mental stability of the student accused of last months Florida school massacre that they decided he should be forcibly committed. But the recommendation was never acted upon. A commitment under the law would have made it more dif“cult if not impossible for Cruz to obtain a gun legally. Cruz is accused of the shooting rampage that killed 14 students and three school employees at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Feb. 14. In addition, 17 people were wounded. But more than a year earlier, documents in the criminal case against Nikolas Cruz and obtained by The Associated Press show school of“cials and a sheriffs deputy recommended in September 2016 that Cruz be involuntarily committed for a mental evaluation. The documents, which are part of Cruzs criminal case in the shooting, show that he had written the word killŽ in a notebook, told a classmate that he wanted to buy a gun and use it, and had cut his arm supposedly in anger because he had broken up with a girlfriend. He also told another student he had drunk gasoline and was throwing up. Calls had even been made to the FBI about the possibility of Cruz using a gun at school. The documents were provided by a psychological assessment service initiated by Cruzs mother called Henderson Behavioral Health. The documents show a high school resource of“cer who was also a sheriffs deputy and two school counselors recommended in September 2016 that Cruz be committed for mental evaluation under Floridas Baker Act. That law allows for involuntary commitment for mental health examination for at least three days. Such an involuntary commitment would also have been a high obstacle if not a complete barrier to legally obtaining a “rearm, such as the AR-15 ri”e used in the Stoneman Douglas massacre on Feb. 14, authorities say. There is no evidence Cruz was ever committed. Coincidentally, the school resource of“cer who recommended that Cruz be Baker ActedŽ was Scot Peterson „ the same Broward Sheriffs Of“ce deputy who resigned amid accusations he failed to respond to the shooting by staying outside the building where the killings occurred. David S. Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor, said that an involuntary commitment would have been a huge red ”ag had Cruz attempted to buy a “rearm legally. If he had lied, hopefully the veri“cation of the form would have pulled up the commitment paperwork,Ž Weinstein said. The documents do not say why Cruz was not committed under the Baker Act or whether he may not have quali“ed for other reasons. The law allows a law enforcement of“cer such as Peterson to initiate commitment under the Baker Act. An attorney for Peterson did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Sunday. Cruz, 19, is charged in a 34-count indictment with killing 17 people and wounding 17 others in the attack. He faces the death penalty if convicted, but his public defender Melisa McNeill has said he would plead guilty in return for a life prison sentence. In the Henderson Behavioral Health documents, Cruzs mother Lynda is quoted as saying she had fresh concerns about her sons mental state after he punched holes in a wall at their home in Parkland. The clinicians at Henderson came to the home for interviews and said Cruz admitted punching the wall but said he did so because he was upset at a breakup with his girlfriend. Cruz also admitted cutting his arm with a pencil sharpener. After a Sept. 28, 2016 interview, the documents say Cruz reports that he cut his arms 3-4 weeks ago and states that this is the only time he has ever cut. (Cruz) states that he cut because he was lonely, states that he had broken up with his girlfriend and reports that his grades had fallen. (Cruz) states that he is better now, reports that he is no longer lonely and states that his grades have gone back up.Ž He also told the clinician he owned only a pellet gun and was not capable of doing serious harmŽ to anyone. The documents show that Cruz was very much on the radar screen of mental health professionals and the Broward County school system, yet very little appears to have been done other than these evaluations. Other red ”ags have also surfaced, including calls to the FBI about Cruzs potential to become a school shooter and numerous visits by county law enforcement of“cials to his home „ both before his mother died in November and after, when he lived briefly with a family friend in Palm Beach County. Again, very little was done. Its not clear from the documents who the recommendation was forwarded to or why it was not followed up.Some wanted Florida suspect committed in 2016By CURT ANDERSONASSOCIATED PRESS Driver strikes 4 motorcycles, killing 1 riderFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) „ Authorities say a Florida man crashed into four motorcycles stopped along a highway, killing one rider and injuring two others. Florida Highway Patrol reports 23-year-old Sean Marlin of Sunrise veered his pickup truck off the Florida Turnpike Saturday night and struck a group of motorcycles from Georgia. Pronounced dead at the scene was 53-year-old John Hawkins of Atlanta. Authorities say 52-yearold Angela Richardson of Atlanta was taken to a hospital with serious injuries and 62-year-old Thomas Nunn of Smyrna, Georgia, sustained minor injuries. A fourth motorcyclist, 55-year-old Raphael Holmes of Stone Mountain, Georgia, wasnt injured. Investigators are trying to determine if alcohol was a factor in the crash. Marlin wasnt injured in the crash.Thousands will be paid for lost treesTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) „ Thousands of Florida homeowners who had healthy citrus trees cut down by the state are “nally going to get paid for their losses. Gov. Rick Scott on Friday approved a new state budget that includes more than $52 million to pay homeowners in Broward and Palm Beach counties whose trees were removed more than a decade ago in a failed attempt to eradicate citrus canker. The homeowners were part of class action lawsuits against the state. Scotts decision was surprising since last year he vetoed more than $37 million in payments that legislators had approved for homeowners in Broward and Lee counties. In a last-ditch attempt to battle contamination, the state in 2000 ordered the destruction of even healthy citrus trees within 1,900 feet of an infected tree with or without the owners permission.Cirque du Soleil performer dies after fall at showTAMPA, Fla. (AP) „ A Cirque du Soleil performer has died after falling during a show in Tampa. The theatrical company announced on Twitter Sunday that Yann Arnaud fell Saturday night while performing an aerial straps number during the show VOLTA. Arnaud was taken to a hospital after the fall, where he later died. Cirque du Soleil canceled its “nal two Tampa shows Sunday while the company and authorities investigate how the accident happened. The entertainment groups President Daniel Lamarre said, the entire Cirque du Soleil family is in shock and devastated by this tragedy.Ž Arnaud had been a performer with Cirque du Soleil for more than 15 years.Police: Man stole victims SUV after fatal crashMIAMI (AP) „ A man is charged with killing a father and son during a crash on a Miami highway „ and then stealing one of the victims cars to get away. Earl Lewis was booked into a Miami-Dade County jail early Sunday, more than a month after 57-year-old Jose Eduardo Cepeda Luna and his 34-year-old son Cesar Eduardo Cepeda were killed. The Miami Herald reports Cepeda called his father for help Feb. 9 after crashing into a guardrail. After the father arrived, police say Lewis ran into the two men with his 2014 Camaro then stole Lunas SUV. Lunas SUV was found abandoned in Homestead and investigators matched DNA in the vehicle to 32-year-old Lewis, who was arrested in 2009 for attempted murder. That charge was later dropped. Jail records didnt indicate whether Lewis has a lawyer.

Call Deb Malinoski Punta Gordas retail therapist. She soothes the shopping-deprived at her oasis on Marion, HipNotique, with a one-stop shop for womens apparel and shoes, handbags, jewelry, scarves and other accessories,Ž according to the shops website. My concept is to bring affordable boutique shopping back to the masses,Ž she said in describing her mentalhealth outreach. Its where people dont have to be afraid of the word boutique because they think everything is $300.Ž She calls her shop eclectic and unique. Theres a little something for everybody. If theres one thing I constantly hear from people walking through this store its how different everything is in here. Its such a great shop. There are so many things.Ž Some of those eclectic items are shown in a 94-second video offered on the website, www.hipnotique.net. The video is entitled Life is Short. Buy the Shoes.Ž Retail therapy at its “nest. The shops roots are in New Jersey, where Deb has her roots. Shes a Bronx native and a Passaic County, N.J., girl who is a card-carrying member of the Fresh Jersey Tomatoes philanthropic sorority down here. The one requirement for membership: Be a Jersey girl. Deb is that, for sure. And its a good thing. She had a shop of the same name in Montclair, N.J., before she and her husband, Fred, moved here in 2011 to be closer to family. Her parents are on Floridas east coast; one of her two daughters is in Tampa. I had to “nd a middle ground between them,Ž she said of settling in Charlotte. She had no intention of reopening HipNotique, but then I was just out shopping in downtown Punta Gorda and saw this empty spot, and my brain just went, Hmmm, I wonder if I should do it again? And I did. I signed the lease that weekend. I saw it on a Friday, and called the landlord, and it was available. It was very spur-of-the-moment. Adapting the shop to Punta Gordas older demographic took a little more time. You learn to change and adapt to what the community wants,Ž Malinoski said. When I “rst brought it down, coming from Jersey and it being a little younger town. I heard, Oh, I have to bring my daughter down when she comes. It wasnt for the older people. So, you listen and you learn and you adapt.Ž Malinoski evolved right along with her shop, which she runs with help from Laurel Infante and Alice By RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENTName: Suzanne T.

But Levi sent some game tape last-minute to Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin because former Tarpon Ryan Corcoran attends the school and plays for the Vikings as a freshman tight end. The coaches liked what they saw and now Levi will soon be packing his bags for a much more wintery climate. I was just going to go to a local university, but they were really interested, so I said, Hey, why not?,Ž said Levi, who signed his letter of intent at Charlotte High School this week. I was very excited, its good to have in my mind that Im not done and I get to keep working toward something.Ž Though Levi mostly has experience on the defensive line, Tarpons head coach Binky Waldrop said the 5-foot-11, 190-pound senior has shown he has what it takes to adapt to the situation. Hes got a great nose for the football,Ž Waldrop said. You can see hes not the biggest lineman weve had, but we played him at end and tackle and he understands the game very well. He did a great job for us for two years.Ž Levi said he plans to pursue a bachelors degree in business at Lawrence this fall, but hes especially appreciative of his chance to keep his passion for playing football alive „ an opportunity he almost didnt have. Im de“nitely proud of myself, but my works not done yet,Ž Levi said. Its more being proud of the guys around me too, I mean I wouldnt be here without them on the “eld with me. The coaching staff was the best in the world, I wouldnt trade them for anyone else.

LOCAL SPORTS VENICE „ The Port Charlotte High boys and Charlotte girls helped break in a new track at Venice high School this week by claiming team victories in the “rst full track meet held at the school in 20 years. In the inaugural Venice Invitational, the Pirates topped the “eld in the boys division with 113.5 points, while Sarasota was second (104.5) and Riverview third (97.5). Among the local programs, North Port was 5th (50), Charlotte 6th (44) and Lemon Bay 9th (38). Charlottes winning total in the girls division was 148 points. North Port (109.5) and host Venice (77.5) rounded out the top three. Port Charlotte was close behind in 4th with 74 points while Lemon Bay collected 43 to “nish 7th in the 12-team “eld. The Charlotte girls were given a boost by their long-distance runners. Isabella Coogan ran three metric miles and collected 18-team points. She “nished runner up to Madison Welch of Lemon Bay in the 1,600-meters and then dismantled the competition in the 3,200. For good measure, Katie Kanagy earned a personal best by about 10 seconds to “nish a clear second. I wasnt expecting to run a personal best since I knew there wouldnt be any runners very close to me. So, I wanted to keep it like a good workout,Ž Coogan said. Im a Florida girl,Ž she added with a laugh. And I dont like running in the cold. I was wearing about six layers and a blanket before the race.Ž Though the temperature dropped signi“cantly after sunset when Coogan and Kanagy ran the 3,200, it was mid-afternoon when Coogan and Lemon Bays Welch squared off in the mile. Isabella is such an amazing runner, she was “ghting the “rst few laps like Im not able to,Ž Welch said after passing Coogan on the “nal lap to win by nearly four seconds. The only way I could beat her was to stay with her for the “rst few laps and then take her at the end. If I would have taken the lead early, she would have beaten me.Ž Other local athletes to claim individual gold for Charlotte High included Eunice Noel who crossed “rst in both the 100 hurdles and 300-meter hurdles. Noel edged out teammate Britney Augustin in the 300. Mackenzie Flowers stood atop the podium after the girls 800. The Charlotte girls also captured the 4x100 and 4x100 relays. Among the Charlotte boys, Savorion Warren proved fastest in the 100 and 200 meters. The Port Charlotte boys led the pack in golds with six. Leading the way were Nicolas Torres and Luther Tyreece. Torres swept the hurdles (110 and 300 meters) while Tyreece captured the long and triple jumps. Jayden Edwards captured the 800 while John Perez won the mile. Sarah Dempaire added some hardware for the Pirates with gold in the discus. For North Port, Emani Jefferson put in a strong performance by winning the girls high jump and 200 meters. She was also runner up to teammate Alexis Francavilla in the long jump. Francavilla also doubled up by capturing the triple jump. For the Bobcat boys, Daniel Gonzalez stood tallest after the boys discus. In addition to Welchs gold in the mile, the Manta Rays picked up another in the boys 400 meters. Blake Dean ran a personal best of 51.79 to edge Bookers Omar Sabur by .22 seconds. I needed to start strong because I knew there were a lot of good runners in the race,Ž Dean said. I slowed down a little on the backstretch and I heard the Booker crowd start to cheer. I knew he was getting close, but I know how to turn it on the last 150 and thats what I did. It was a tough race.ŽCharlotte dominates inaugural Venice InvitationalBy STEPHEN McKAYSUN CORRESPONDENT Charlottes Eunice Noel won the girls 300-meter hurdles in wireto-wire fashion.

The Humane Society, which campaigns against the sale of fur, welcomed the decision Wednesday, noting that Versace is a massively in”uential luxury brand that symbolizes excess and glamor.Ž The group quoted an interview in the Economist Groups 1843Ž magazine with designer Donatella Versace, who said, Fur? I am out of that. I dont want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesnt feel right.Ž Versace hasnt said when it would phase fur out of their collections, but given the fashion cycle it wouldnt be before the next winter season. Versace is joining a trend among fashion houses to make its collections more environmentally sustainable.Versace is latest to join no-fur trend in fashionTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this Friday, Sept. 22, 2017 le photo, Claudia Shier, Donatella Versace, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen are on the catwalk at the end of the Versace womens Spring/ Summer 2018 fashion collection, presented in Milan, Italy. Versace has become the latest fashion house to eliminate fur from its collections, joining Gucci, Giorgio Arman, and Hugo Boss, among others.You know when you go up in a plane and you just bloat in the air?Ž Ekrem Dimbiloglu asked me the other morning. Your neck and your feet?Ž As Delta Air Lines director of uniforms, Dimbiloglu has seen what 30,000 feet can do to a person. The of“cial term is jet belly.Ž So when Delta hired fashion designer Zac Posen to create new uniforms for its 22,500 ”ight attendants, he was sure to include an elastic tab in the collar of the dress shirts. Necks could expand all they wanted. Problem solved. That little detail is one of many that Posen worked into the new uniforms, for which Deltas 3,300 Seattle-based employees started “ttings recently in a ballroom at the Airport Marriott. This I had to see, for it hasnt been very fashionable up there in the air for a very long time. If passengers arent trying to pass hamsters and peacocks off as service animals, theyre dressing like theyre headed to Pilates or back to bed, carrying pillows and stuffed-animal backpacks and grease-stained bags of food. If Delta employees are looking this good, it might just inspire passengers to pull up their proverbial pants. Since Delta hasnt had new uniforms in a decade, the company made the days event a party, complete with private dressing tents and a runway down the center, if employees were so inclined to walk it. Why the fuss? Its deeper than a uniform,Ž said Chad Holmes, an aircraft load agent based in Salt Lake City who participated in the design process. Its something that you feel proud to wear, and if you have an employee that feels good, its going to transfer to the customer service.Ž Those are “ghting words here in the home of Alaska Airlines, which just last month debuted new uniforms designed by Seattle-based designer Luly Yang. She went undercover for six months, quizzing employees about their uniforms, saying only that she was working on a research project. Posen, too, traveled to get a sense of what Delta employees needed and then engaged 1,000 ”ight attendants, gate agents, and cargo, ground and ramp employees in a three-month wear test. Their suggestions resulted in 65 changes: Everything from the rise in the mens pants to the shade of blue, which was made 20 percent darker to hide dirt and stains. The pen-pocket in the male ”ight-attendant suit was deepened a half-inch. There are sweat shieldsŽ sewn under the arms of all the blazers. The radio clip on the female ground employees shirt was moved from the chest area to the shoulder. Ground crew shirts are made of Dri-Fit material with re”ective panels built in, eliminating the need for safety vests. All the fabrics have four-way stretch for better mobility, and all over is the Delta widget, placed everywhere from the snap on the pants to the top of the ground employees gloves to the re”ective material on the half-zip pullovers. Theyre not there for the customer,Ž Dimbiloglu said. We want the employees to feel great and prideful about working for Delta.Ž The uniforms debut on May 29 „ the day after Memorial Day, and just in time for the summer travel rush. Seattle-based ”ight attendant Lawrence Knapp has been with Delta since it merged with Western Airlines in 1987. He loves the darts in the new vest and the fact that the backing isnt silk anymore: It used to get all pilled up.Ž In the next “tting area, Rebecca Stratton „ who works in safety and compliance on the ramp „ did a little dance in her new shorts. When she “rst started with the airline six years ago, I guessed what size I would wear and crossed my “ngers.Ž Not only does her new uniform “t, These shorts are so soft, I havent even washed them yet and I feel like theyre ”exible and breathable.Ž Most people dont understand what the job entails, she said. Its a lot of different movements,Ž she said. One minute youre lifting bags, next youre climbing a ladder and after that youre under an aircraft. Its a lot of physical work. Its important to be comfortable in what you do. If youre not, youre going to be stiff and its going to cause injuries.Ž Said Holmes, We have pretty frazzled jobs. Now well feel more put together.Ž And, hopefully, a little less bloated.Delta Air Lines uniforms updated by Zac PosenBy NICOLE BRODEURTHE SEATTLE TIMES THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS MAY VARY FROM PERSON TO PERSON. NO INDIVIDUAL RESULT SHOULD BE SEEN AS TYPICAL. Theres no denying that people „ mostly women „ are on a mission to discover the best way to eliminate “ne lines and wrinkles permanently. The $14 billion dollars spent on aesthetic procedures in 2016 alone is a clear indication of that fact. But now science appears to be offering a simpler solution. Its a special delivery technology adapted for skincare that gets superior results. Known as advanced liposome technology, this powerful distribution system ensures that vital nutrients are delivered exactly where your skin needs them the most, providing your skin with maximum anti-aging bene“ts. New Age-Defying Dermal Filler Cream in High DemandAl Sears, MD, of Palm Beach, Florida, recently released an anti-aging cream that adapts this breakthrough medical technology into the realm of skincare, and hes struggling to keep up with consumer demand. Dr. Sears is South Floridas leading anti-aging pioneer. He has authored over 500 reports, scienti“c papers, and books on anti-aging. A frequent lecturer at global anti-aging conferences, Dr. Sears recently spoke at the WPBF 25 Health & Wellness Festival featuring Dr. Oz, along with special guest, Suzanne Somers. Thousands of people were in attendance as Dr. Sears discussed his latest anti-aging breakthroughs. This powerful cream, known as Restore, keeps selling out faster than its produced „ and people are raving about the effect its having on their skin. Within a few minutes of applying the cream, it visibly plumps out the under-eye area and my cheeks as well as those annoying lines that deepen as we age between the nose and lips. It also felt like it was tightening and smoothing my skin at the same time. I de“nitely feel I look younger whenever I use it,Ž said Amy B., of Montville, New Jersey. The lines around my mouth and eyes are “lled in and my skin is tightened. I love having younger-looking skin, so I will continue using RestoreŽ raves Cathy C., of Florida. The best part is that this cream has no adverse side effects, doesnt require a doctors visit or prescription, and is 100% natural. Powerful Delivery System Ensures Nutrients Penetrate Deep into Your SkinThe dermis is the underlying layer of skin that supplies nourishment and oxygen, and removes waste. In other words, its responsible for keeping your outer layer of skin healthy. Liposome technology is designed to support and nourish this deeper layer of skin by delivering nutrients directly to it. All of Restores powerful ingredients are encapsulated in a liposome shell „ an organic container that carries the beautifying agents deep into the skin cells,Ž explained Dr. Sears. Restores liposome shell is composed of phosphatidylcholine or PC for short. While cell membranes repel water, they absorb PC because theyre actually made of it. As a result, Restore is delivered deep into the cell for maximum “rming and volume.Ž When you apply liposome cream to your face, the liposomes in the skin cream work their way inside your skin, fuse with the skin cell membranes and then release their contents directly to the cells. Regular skin creams dont have this capability. A Formula Designed to Take 10 Years off Your Face in Just 10 MinutesOnce its penetrated the deeper layer of skin, Restore releases a unique blend of botanicals, vitamins and essential oils that reduces the appearance of “ne lines and wrinkles, gives skin a more even tone, and moisturizes the interior layers of your dermal cells, “rming and plumping your skin. Restores “rst skin-enhancing agent is Madonna lily leaf stem cell extract. It helps produce an eventoned complexion. In a clinical study reported in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology participants treated with this extract for 28 days showed improvements in skin luminance and tone around the eyes. Restore is also loaded with vitamin C, which British researchers have found reduces both wrinkles and dryness. In Restore we use magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, a more stable form of vitamin C that doesnt break down in liquid as does ordinary C,Ž explains Dr. Sears. That means the antioxidant molecules stay intact within your skin cells where they can p revent damage from dangerous free radicals.Ž This powerful formula also features guarana seed extract, coenzyme Q10, and avocado oil. Japanese researchers have also found that coenzyme Q10 supports production of the thin membrane that separates layers of your skin, and French studies have shown that avocado oil imp roves skin cell metabolism and enhances skin thickness. Where To Get RestoreRight now the only way to get this powerful age-defying delivery technology is through Dr. Sears. To get life-changing results like Amy and Cathy, buyers should contact the Sears Health Hotline at 1-888-362-6921 within the next 48 hours. We simply dont have enough supply to get Restore shipped directly to stores,Ž said Dr. Sears. The hotline allows us to ship the product directly to the customer … the one who really wants it.Ž Dr. Sears feels so strongly about this product, that he offers a 100% moneyback guarantee on every order. Just send back the bottle and any unused product within 90 d ays, and Ill send you your money back,Ž said Dr. Sears. The hotline will be taking orders for the next 48 hours. After that, the phone number will be shut down to allow them to restock. Call 1-888-362-6921 to secure your limited supply of Restore.

Page 20 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 19, 2018 OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN 6 While diverse body types are becoming increasingly visible in beauty advertisements every day, when asked to picture a model body,Ž a pretty specific (and unattainable) image still comes to mind. I asked the Byrdie edit team to name the physical qualities they associate with a model body, and among them were a tiny waist, long legs, and smooth skin. Despite the ever-expanding body diversity movement, this is still the image we most often see portrayed in beauty and fashion ads, and thus, the image we associate with perfection. Its hard not to feel insecure in comparison. Heres the thing, though: Statistically, it is almost impossible to have the towering height, flat stomach, cellulite-free thighs, blonde hair, and bright blue eyes we see so frequently in magazines and on Instagram. We know because we consulted census data, crunched the numbers, and determined that objectively, no one looks like a model.Ž Not even models.90 percent of women have celluliteCellulite is a dirty word in the beauty industry. For how many products that promise to get rid of it, youd think it was a fatal condition. And yet, judging by the models in beauty and fashion ads (even ones who claim not to have used Photoshop), cellulite seems not to exist. The truth, however, is that cellulite affects 90 percent of women. According to Scienti“c American, cellulite is particularly common in women in part because of our hormones. Estrogen levels decrease as we age, and this causes the loss of blood vessel receptors in the thighs, which leads to decreased circulation and, thus, a depletion of collagen production. When fat cells protrude through the collagen, thats cellulite, and because we have three layers of fat around our knees, butt, and thighs, thats where were more likely to see it. A womens body is basically genetically designed to be a place for cellulite to develop,Ž says Scienti“c American. By the age of 30, the large majority of women have it, even models.70 percent of women have stretch marksThe interesting thing about stretch marks, or striae, is that models, in particular, are even more likely to have them. Thats because stretch marks are actually scars that occur when the dermis (aka, the thick layer of tissue below your skin) stretches and tears, which inevitably happens after a growth spurt „ something that someone of model height would be familiar with. You dont get six feet tall during puberty without having stretch marks,Ž a professional photoshopper told Re“nery29 in late 2016. Stretch marks can also appear after rapid weight gain, say, from pregnancy. In fact, 90 percent of pregnant women get stretch marks, which is why most products cater to them and why we ”ip out when we get stretch marks outside the context of pregnancy. In truth, though, 70 percent of women who arent pregnant also have stretch marks, and that percentage includes models like Jasmine Tookes, Chrissy Teigen and all the models who appeared in the unretouched images recently published by brands like ASOS and Aerie. The number of blondes we see in the beauty and entertainment industries is so unrepresentative of real human bodies that its crazy. Depending on what source you consult, surveys show that only between 2 percent and 16 percent of the American population is naturally blonde. And yet, a study conducted in the mid-aughts by the hair color brand Clairol revealed that 65 percent of respondents considered blondes the most glamorous.Ž Our obsession with light hair goes way back, literally to the days of the ancient Greeks, who depicted Aphrodite, the goddess of love, with long golden hair. Another Clairol study from 2008 reported that approximately 75 percent of American women dye their hair and that 88 percent feel that their hair color has a major effect on their con“dence. That means statistically very few women sport their true hair color and one can imagine that stat is even lower among models.Less than 17 percent of Americans have blue eyesHuman beings have had a “xation on blue eyes ever since the Middle Ages, when light eyes were thought to be a sign of fertility (theyre not). Europeans brought their preferences for blue eyes over to America, where they were reinforced by Hollywoods history of christening blueeyed women like Marilyn Monroe the nations most beautiful. Katie Ford, CEO of Ford Models in New York, told The New York Times that Americans became so transfixed with the blue-eyed ideal that almost every big fashion model in the 70s and 80s was of Scandinavian descent. This came to represent the all-American lookŽ even though by then, blue eyes were largely on the decline. A 2002 Loyola University survey in Chicago found that about 50 percent of Americans born at the turn of the 20th century had blue eyes but that today, only about 1 in 6 Americans do. Thats because 100 years ago, 80 percent of people married and reproduced within their ethnic group, so blue eyes (a genetically recessive trait) were passed down among English, Irish and Northern European families. But by midcentury, immigration from Latin America and Asia increased, people started outbr eeding (thank god), and brown eyes (a dominant trait) became the norm. In the 1930s, eugenicists even tried to use the disappearance of blue eyes as an excuse to curb immigration. Over the past decade or two, as beauty standards have shifted from Farrah Fawcett to Alessandra Ambrosio and Kim Kardashian West, brown eyes have elevated on the hierarchy of idolized eye colors. Even so, blonde hair and blue eyes still symbolize the all-American modelŽ for many, even though this look naturally occurs so infrequently in the U.S. anymore.Less than 3 percent of American women are 5-foot-10 or tallerWe see a line of six-foot-tall women parade down a runway and instantly all feel like goblins, but considering that the statistical equivalent of 0 percent of American women are six feet tall, its bananas that all the women chosen to model our clothes are (or at least close to it). Census data from 2007 to 2008 revealed that a 510Ž woman is in the 97.6th height percentile for American women between the ages of 20 and 29. It is, in fact, more common to be “ve feet even than 510Ž, and average height is more like 54Ž.The average American woman is a size 16Models waists average somewhere around 25 inches, but a 2016 study published in International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology, and Education sampled 5,500 American women above the age of 20 and found that the average female waist size is 37.5Ž. That measurement is up more than 2.5 inches from 20 years ago, though models are still as tiny-waisted as ever. Moreover, while most models dress sizes are 0s, 2s, and 4s, the average American woman as of 2016 was between a size 16 and 18. Feeling better about your non-modelŽ body? We hope so. Because as the data shows, that perfectŽ image scarcely exists.Its statistically unrealistic to have a model body „ heres proofBy AMANDA MONTELLBYRDIE AP PHOTOA model displays a creation by Ksenia Seraya during Fashion Week in Moscow, Russia, March 14. adno=718739 adno=717518

The Sun /Monday, March 19, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 21 OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN 7 When Jacen Bowman was serving time in jail for shoplifting, he had no idea that one day hed be the one bronzing Lupita Nyongos cheeks, applying Phylicia Rashads lashes, or grooming Tyson Beckford for photo shoots. And makeup artist Bowman, 35, certainly didnt think he would be collaborating with popular drugstore brand Black Radiance. This is a big deal. Well before the days of MAC, when Fashion Fair was the only department store brand with colors that complemented black womens complexions, Black Radiance was the go-to drugstore lipstick. In the late 1990s and early aughts, Black Radiance lost relevance as other brands, like MAC and Bobbi Brown, amped up their beauty options for women of color. But now, as we rethink how we spend our discretionary spending „ Im moving more toward subscription boxes rather than buying fancy make up a la carte „ Black Radiance, along with other drugstore faves, like Wet-N-Wild and CoverGirl, are making a comeback. This spring, Bowman, whose company is called Shades of Jacen, put his touch on all of Black Radiances in-store ad campaigns used in Target, Walmart, and Walgreens. He stars in Black Radiances YouTube tutorials, and he even helped come up with the seasons color palette. According to Bowman, the lipstick look for spring is glossy. And for the face, all that Kardashiancontouring is “nally on its way out. Im a beauty expert now,Ž Bowman told me on a cold, snowy Wednesday afternoon from his New York apartment, where he lives a few days a week. He also has a home in Brewerytown. My makeup work is in a national campaign. I never thought it would happen.Ž Other A-listers who have been on the receiving side of Bowmans makeup brush include singers Elle Varner, Philly natives Jazmine Sullivan and LeAndria Johnson, and reality star Porsha Williams. Bowman was also one of the artists on hand at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, where he made up Scandal actor Tony Goldwyn and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. (His tweezers were inches away from Hillary Clinton, but no dice.) Bowman grew up in East Oak Lane and attended George Washington High School in the Northeast. Back then, he had dreams of becoming a journalist, like his dad. But by the time Bowman went to college, his heart wasnt in it. He dropped out of Delaware State University and worked in retail, including at the Gap on South Street and Nordstrom in King of Prussia. In 2007, Bowman made a bad left turn in life and started shoplifting. He got caught a few times, was arrested, and spent six months in jail. Thats when I said, OK, Jacen, you are so smart you have to change the people you hang around,Ž Bowman said. I knew I wanted to get into makeup and get into hair, but I didnt do that because I wanted to please my dad. But before he died, he told me (on the phone) that I didnt have to do what he wanted anymore. He passed while I was in jail.Ž After he was released, Bowman went to beauty school in Ambler and landed a job as a part-time assistant makeup artist behind the MAC store in Cherry Hill Mall. After a few months, he went full-time and was on his way to a management career when MAC discovered his background and demoted him back to part-time artist. That put a ”ame on my behind,Ž Bowman said. I decided right then I wasnt going to let anyone tell me, No, again.Ž Shades of Jacen was born. Bowmans beauty business grew largely through word of mouth. Thats how Good Day Philadelphia anchor Alex Holley, who uses him for special occasions, found him. Its also how Black Radiance marketing executive Lana Gregg learned about his skills. Last year, Gregg, who grew up in Abington but is now based in Los Angeles, tagged Bowman to work on the Black Radiance Lashtastic promotion in Los Angeles. His work went over so well „ thanks in large part to his 46,700 Instagram followers „ that he was pegged (and paid) for a 2018 collaboration. He cares about the faces he works on,Ž Gregg said. Hes good at customizing „ no two of his faces look alike.ŽCelebrity makeup artist helping Black Radiance stay relevantBy ELIZABETH WELLINGTONPHILLY.COM PHOTO PROVIDEDJacen BowmanYOUTUBE PHOTOBlack Radiance Beauty No Makeup Makeup Tutorial featuring Jacen Bowman.SAN FRANCISCO (AP) „ In a move to improve the livelihoods of garment workers and help improve supply chain transparency and ef“ciency, Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS) today announced a bold new goal for all of its tier 1 suppliers „ approximately 800 factories in about 30 countries „ to make the transition from a cashbased system to digital payments by 2020. More than 60 percent of Gap Inc.s supplier factories already provide digital payments methods, such as online transfers to bank accounts or mobile wallets. The new goal will help scale this progress across the companys global supply chain and positively impact the lives of more than one million garment workers. At Gap Inc., we believe that good business practices can help change the world and fuel growth. By having our suppliers pay garment workers digitally, we aim to accelerate the transition towards a more transparent workplace for the women and men who make our clothes. Its a win-win for garment workers and factories alike,Ž said David Hayer, Senior Vice President of Global Sustainability at Gap Inc. and President of Gap Foundation. Women make up about 80 percent of the worlds garment industry workforce but often live in a cash-only environment and lack access to formal “nancial services. Electronic wage payment methods have the bene“t of drawing previously unbanked workers into the formal “nancial system, allowing women greater control over their “nances and a safer way to save, send money and invest. At the factory level, suppliers bene“t from cost savings, due to increased ef“ciency and speed. All parties also bene“t from increased accountability, transparency, and security. To help achieve this bold new commitment, Gap Inc. also announced today that it has joined the United Nationsbased Better Than Cash Alliance, a partnership of governments, companies, and international organizations that accelerates the transition from cash to digital payments in order to reduce poverty and drive inclusive growth. Were pleased to join the Better Than Cash Alliance to help drive this important progress forward. We encourage others across the apparel industry to join us in this effort,Ž Hayer added. The scale, innovation and leadership of the private sector is critical to creating economies where all people bene“t from digital “nancial services,Ž said Dr. Ruth Goodwin-Groen, Managing Director of the Better Than Cash Alliance. Gap Inc. is one of the global brands leading the way when it comes to digitizing workers payments in the garment sector. Its commitment today will continue the movement across the retail sector to improve lives, increase transparency and drive business bene“ts through digital payments, and contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals.Ž For over 10 years, Gap Inc. has promoted “nancial literacy and inclusion through its life-skills education and training program for female garment workers, P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement). The programs holistic curriculum also includes topics such as communication skills; time and stress management; problem solving and decision-making. Gap Inc. sets new goal for apparel suppliers to pay garment workers digitally by 2020 ADNO=718744 adno=718737

HASAN KIRMIZITA/DHA-DEPO PHOTOS VIA APTurkey-backed Free Syrian Army soldiers celebrate around a statue of Kawa, a mythology gure in Kurdish culture as they prepare to destroy it in city center of Afrin, northwestern Syria, early Sunday.ISTANBUL „ Turkish military and allied Syrian forces marched into the center of the northern Syrian town of Afrin Sunday, raising their ”ags and shooting in the air in celebration nearly two months after launching their offensive on the Kurdish enclave. The advancing troops faced little resistance from the Kurdish militia that retreated and vowed to turn to guerrilla tactics. Turkeys President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the capture of Afrin, previously controlled by the Kurdish militia known as the Peoples Defense Units, or YPG. Many of the terrorists had turned tail and run away already,Ž Erdogan said in a speech in western Turkey. In Afrins center, it is no longer the rags of the terror organization that are waving but rather the symbols of peace and security.Ž The Kurdish militia called the assault on Afrin an occupationŽ and vowed a new phaseŽ of guerrilla tactics against Turkish troops and its allied Syrian “ghters. It is not clear what Turkey would do after the capture of Afrin. Turkey views the Kurdish forces in the Afrin enclave along the border as terrorists linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, which has waged a decades-long insurgency within Turkeys borders. Erdogan has repeatedly said that Turkey will not allow a terror corridorŽ along its border and has vowed to push east after Afrin. Erdogan threatened to move to Manbij, a Kurdish-run town to the east where U.S. troops have also maintained a presence after it was cleared of Islamic State militants in 2016. Washingtons support to the YPG, including arming the militia and relying on it to battle Islamic State militants in eastern Syria, has strained relations between Turkey and the U.S. A push east could further in”ame tension. In an attempt to prevent such a move east, Washington began discussions to address Turkeys concerns about the Kurdish militias presence in Manbij. Turkey wants the YPG to pull out from the town. Meanwhile, U.S. and Kurdish of“cials said Turkeys “ght with the Turkey-backed forces capture Syrian Kurdish town of AfrinBy ZEYNEP BILGINSOY and SARAH EL DEEBASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump is questioning the impartiality of Robert Muellers investigation and says the probe is groundless, while raising doubts about whether a “red top FBI of“cial kept personal memos outlining his interactions with Trump. Trump on Sunday elevated his simmering grievances to a boil against Mueller, whose team is examining Trump campaign ties to Russia and possible obstruction of justice; onetime FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who was dismissed Friday by the attorney general; and former FBI Director James Comey, ousted last year by Trump. The presidents Twitter barbs follow closely on the call by Trumps personal lawyer for the Trump-appointed No. 2 Justice Department of“cial overseeing Muellers inquiry to bring an endŽ to that investigation. And Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee said this past week that they had completed a draft report concluding, after a yearlong investigation, that there was no collusion or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia; committee Democrats vehemently disagreed. Trump “rst asserted on Saturday evening the Mueller probe should never have startedŽ and then followed that up the next morning by claiming the Mueller teamŽ of investigators has a large number of hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? ... does anyone think this is fair? And yet, WASHINGTON „ Promoting the image of a new Saudi Arabia, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrives Monday in Washington on a cross-country trip to court government of“cials, Silicon Valley technology companies, investors and one of his biggest fans: President Donald Trump. He is a prince on a mission and in a hurry. The 32-year-old heir to the Saudi throne already has curried favor with the Trump administration, winning over the president and his family, and played a key role in restoring the desert kingdom to favored-ally status after years of tension under President Barack Obama. The prince will meet with Trump at the White House Tuesday and then is expected to travel over the next two weeks to Wall Street, Silicon Valley, Seattle, Boston and Houston, where he will confer with oil and energy executives. Trump made his “rst overseas trip as president to Saudi Arabia last year, where he and the Saudi king, the crown princes father, signed agreements to “ght terrorism, to counter Riyadhs regional rival Iran and to plan billions of dollars in business deals, most of which have yet to materialize. Mohammed is keen to take the next step: attracting American investment, Trump elevates simmering Mueller, McCabe grievances to boilSaudi crown prince heads to White House and Silicon ValleyBy ERIC TUCKERASSOCIATED PRESSBy TRACY WILKINSON and ALEX ANDRA ZAVISTRIBUNE WASHINGTON BUREAUMOSCOW „ Vladimir Putin rolled to a crushing re-election victory Sunday for six more years as Russias president, and he told cheering supporters in a triumphant but brief speech that we are bound for success.Ž There had been no doubt that Putin would win in his fourth electoral contest; he faced seven minor candidates and his most prominent foe was blocked from the ballot. His only real challenge was to run up the tally so high that he could claim an indisputable mandate. With ballots from 80 percent of Russias precincts counted by early Monday, Putin had amassed 76 percent of the vote. Observers and individual voters reported widespread violations including ballot-box stuf“ng and forced voting, but the claims are unlikely to dilute the power of Russias longest-serving leader since Josef Stalin. As the embodiment of Russias resurgent power on the world stage, Putin commands immense loyalty among Russians. More than 30,000 crowded into Manezh Square adjacent to the Kremlin in temperatures of minus-10 degrees (15-degrees F) for a victory concert and to await his words. Putin extolled them for their support „ I am a member of your teamŽ „ and he promised them that we are bound for success.Ž Then he left the stage after speaking for less than two minutes, a seemingly perfunctory appearance that encapsulated the elections predictability. Since he took the helm in Russia on New Years Eve 1999 after Boris Yeltsins surprise resignation, Putins electoral power has centered on stability, a quality cherished by Russians after the chaotic breakup of the Soviet Union and the wild capitalismŽ of the Yeltsin years. But that stability has been bolstered by a suppression of dissent, the withering of independent media and the top-down control of politics called managed democracy.Ž There were widespread reports of forced voting Sunday, efforts to make Russia appear to be a robust democracy. Among them were two election observers in Gorny Shchit, a rural district of Yekaterinburg, who told The Putin overwhelmingly wins another 6 yearsBy VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV and JIM HEINTZASSOCIATED PRESS PUTIN | 4 CAPTURE | 4 TRUMP | 4 PRINCE | 4 YURI KADOBNOV/POOL PHOTO VIA APRussian President and Presidential candidate Vladimir Putin exits a polling booth as he prepares to cast his ballot during Russias presidential election in Moscow, Russia, Sunday. adno=50531127

Theyre not nearly as bad as payday lenders, but it still seems kind of silly to me theres even a market for this kind of thi ng. If you want a place to cash your checks and store your money, all you have to do is walk into a bank and open an account. I realize theres a small segment of the population that some people in “nancial circles like to call the unbanked.Ž This means that, for whatever reason, they avoid banks. Thats their choice, but in the process, they leave themselves susceptible to bad deals. As I said, I dont feel the same way about check-cashing companies as I do about payday lenders. But its still not a “nancially smart move to regularly pay a storefront operation fees just to cash your checks. „ DaveHeres a better ideaDear Dave: Im 27 years old, and I have no debt. In addition, I have a “vemonth emergency fund of $14,000. Recently, I started a new job making $60,000. Ive been offered a 401(k) with no match, but I was wondering if instead I should open a high-yield CD. „ Kris Dear Kris: Youre doing very well at a young age. Congratulations! Im glad youre thinking about your “nancial future, too. But Ive got a better idea. How about opening a Roth IRA with good growth stock mutual funds inside? That would be my choice. Fund it up to $5,500 a year, and make sure the mutual funds have strong track records of at least 10 years. This investment „ growing tax-free „ will be superior to a non-matching 401(k) or certi“cate of deposit. If you want to invest even more, you could then put additional cash into the 401(k) offered by your company. With your income and maturity, plus the proper investment strategy, youre likely to retire a very wealthy lady. Keep up the great work, Kris! „ Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions.

Britain and the EU want a deal on future relations settled by the fall so national parliaments can approve it before Britain of“cially leaves the 28-nation bloc on March 29, 2019. In a report published Sunday, the lawmakers said a proposed transition period of about two years should be able to be extended if needed. The two sides have agreed in principle that Britain will continue to remain part of the blocs structures and rules until the end of 2020. Seven pro-Brexit members of the 21-member, all-party committee refused to back the report, preparing an alternative version that took a more uncompromising tone toward the EU. The majority-backed report said it is worrying that there has been little progressŽ in solving the key issue of how to maintain an open border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland after Brexit. Britain and the EU agree there must be no customs posts or other infrastructure along the all-but-invisible border, but the committee said Britain has yet to put forward credible proposals for how this could work. We know of no international border, other than the internal borders of the EU, that operates without checks and physical infrastructure,Ž said the committees chairman, Labour lawmaker Hilary Benn. The pro-Brexit dissenters alternative document accused the EU of taking an unhelpful approach to the border issue. They suggested that new technology and streamlinedŽ customs arrangements can deliver a frictionless border. Rather than having Britain seek to extend its EU membership, the minority group said the U.K should walk away without a deal if talks bog down.Lawmakers say UK should consider postponing BrexitBy JILL LAWLESSASSOCIATED PRESSUK lawmaker says Facebook misled Parliament over leaked dataLONDON (AP) „ The head of the British Parliaments media committee says Facebook misled law makers by downplaying the risk of users data being shared without their consent. Conservative legislator Damian Collins says he will ask Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg or another executive to appear before his committee, which is investigating disinformation and fake news.Ž Collin says Facebook has consistently understatedŽ the risk of data leaks and given misleading answers to the committee.

Abu Dhabi signs $1.45B offshore deal with TotalDUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) „ The state oil company of the energy-rich capital of the United Arab Emirates says it has signed a deal worth $1.45 billion with French oil giant Total SA granting it stakes in offshore “elds. The Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. made the announcement in a statement Sunday. It said Total would be granted a 20 percent stake in the Umm Shaif and Nasr concessions and a 5 percent stake in the Lower Zakum concession, paying participation fees of $1.15 billion and $300 million, respectively. Lower Zakum produces some 450,000 barrels of oil per day, while the Umm Shaif and Nasr “elds produce some 460,000, as well as some 500 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas.Chinese Premier Li Keqiang appointed to second 5-year termBEIJING (AP) „ Chinas ceremonial legislature has appointed the No. 2 Communist Party leader, Li Keqiang, to a second “ve-year term as premier and approved the appointment of a director for a national anti-corruption agency.

The Sun /Monday, March 19, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATION ST. LOUIS „ A condemned Missouri inmate faces a potentially gruesome and painfulŽ execution because of a rare medical condition that compromises the mans veins and causes multiple tumors in his head and throat, his attorney said Sunday. Russell Bucklew is scheduled to die by injection Tuesday evening for killing a former girlfriends new boyfriend in 1996 in eastern Missouri. Bucklew, 49, was moments away from execution in May 2014 when the U.S. Supreme Court halted it amid concerns about Bucklews medical condition. He suffers from cavernous hemangioma, a rare ailment that causes weakened and malformed blood vessels, as well as blood“lled tumors in his nose and throat. Nearly four years later, the condition has worsened, attorney Cheryl Pilate said. Mr. Bucklews rare and severe condition creates a very substantial risk of a gruesome execution, with choking and gagging on blood and the in”iction of excruciating pain,Ž Pilate said. A panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has already refused to stop the execution. An appeal and stay request are pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. Pilate also has asked for clemency from Republican Gov. Eric Greitens. Email messages seeking comment Sunday from spokespeople for Greitens and Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley were not immediately returned. The appeal offered a chilling possibility of what Bucklews supporters believe could happen during the execution. Those highly sensitive tumors easily rupture and bleed,Ž the appeal said. As he struggles to breathe through the execution procedure, Bucklews throat tumor will likely rupture,Ž causing him to choke on his own blood. Bucklews execution will very likely be gruesome and painful far beyond the pain inherent in the process of an ordinary lethal injection execution,Ž the court document said, adding it would violate Bucklews constitutional guarantee against cruel and unusual punishment. In his response to the U.S. Supreme Court, Hawley downplayed Bucklews medical condition and cited continuing efforts over several years to put off the execution. Bucklews appeals also have suggested that if the execution is carried out, the state should use lethal gas instead of an injection of pentobarbital. Missouri law still lists gas as an option, but the state no longer has a gas chamber and has not used the method since 1965. None of the 20 inmates executed since Missouri began using pentobarbital in 2013 have shown obvious signs of pain or suffering. According to court documents, Bucklew was angry at his girlfriend for leaving him and moving in with Michael Sanders of Cape Girardeau when he tracked her down at Sanders home in March 1996. He killed Sanders in front of the woman, her two daughters and Sanders two sons and then attacked the woman and drove her to a secluded area and raped her. After a state trooper spotted Bucklews car, Bucklew shot at the trooper but missed, court records say. Bucklew later escaped from jail, hid in the home of the exgirlfriends mother and beat her with a hammer. The execution would be the “rst in Missouri since January 2017.Lawyers: Execution could be gruesome due to rare conditionBy JIM SALTERASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Sen. Rand Paul said Sunday that he would do everything to stopŽ President Donald Trumps nominations of Mike Pompeo for secr etary of state and Gina Haspel for CIA director, but conceded that he may not be able to stop them. Paul, R-Ky., said on CBS Face the NationŽ that he wants someone whos not advocating for war,Ž particularly against Iran and North Korea, rather than Pompeo, the current CIA director. Trump named Pompeo, a former Republican representative from Kansas, to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. The president “red Tillerson last week. Paul also objected to Haspels overseeing of CIA black sitesŽ where waterboarding occurred in the early 2000s. I dont think torture is what Americas about,Ž Paul said. Paul also spoke out against Haspel in an article published by Politico Sunday. Some details may be disputed, but it remains true that Haspel ran a secret center in Thailand where prisoners were tortured,Ž he wrote. There is no question that during her career, Haspel participated in and helped develop the program that our own government has labeled torture.Ž On CBS he conceded that that he doesnt have the power to stop her nominationŽ if she gets enough votes. Also on CNN, Sen Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Pauls opposition makes him an outlierŽ in the Republican Party. Pompeo and Haspel are both quali“ed and should be con“rmed, Graham said. Still, Haspel, the current CIA deputy director, will have to acknowledge that waterboarding is no longer allowed by federal law, Graham said.Rand Paul threatens filibuster on CIA nomineesBy BEN BRODYBLOOMBERG NEWS FAYSTON, Vt. „ Backto-back noreasters that have pounded New England have given ski resorts a late-season blast of their lifes blood, luring skiers and snowboarders to the slopes, and allowing smaller ski areas that rely on natural snow to stay open. From Vermont to Maine, skiers and riders were cheering the mounds of snow. Its amazing,Ž said Tim Austin, of Brentwood, New Hampshire, as he waited Thursday to board the single person chairlift at Mad River Glen in Fayston, Vermont. March storms have dumped over 5 feet of snow on Vermont resorts, with Mount Snow in southern Vermont living up to its name; 66 inches have fallen just this month there, according to the Vermont Ski Association. Its the best March in years,Ž said skier Gregg Fitzgerald, of Starksboro, Vermont, as he took a break at Mad River on Thursday. And resorts have the added bene“t of snow in the regions down-country cities that gets people thinking about heading to the slopes to ski. In coastal Maine, Camden Snow Bowl ordinarily stays open until mid-March, said General Manager Beth Ward. But this year, it will likely stay open until April for the second time in the 13 winters that Ward has been there. More than 2 feet of snow fell recently. As long as we have the snow, and people are coming, well stay open as long as we can,Ž she said. Its the “rst time this year that Whaleback Mountain in En“eld, New Hampshire, has had 100 percent of its 30 trails open for more than a day and thats due to the signi“cant snowfall, said general manager Adam Kaufman. The atmosphere also is more fun since people are more excited about skiing the fresh powder,Ž he said. Whaleback plans to stay open several weeks longer than planned with this bumper crop of snow. With these storms, its tempting to stay open as long as people are coming skiing,Ž he said. At the same time, the National Weather Service and Vermont of“cials are warning back-country skiers and ice climbers about the increased threat of avalanches. An avalanche struck six U.S. Army soldiers undergoing mountain-warfare training near Mount Mans“eld, Vermonts tallest peak. Vermont state police, resort ski patrols and volunteer and rescue groups have received dozens of calls for assistance in recent days, the department said. Over 30 skiers and snowboarders at Bolton Valley and Killington needed to be rescued over the course of a week, the department said Wednesday.Northeast snowstorms give ski areas late season powder blastBy LISA RATHKEASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOIn this March 15, photo, skiers board the chairlift at Mad River Glen in Fayston, Vt.

(AP) „ Three people have died in a residential building “re that caused residents to jump from windows. MassLive.com reports the “re broke out shortly before 7:30 a.m. Sunday. They found residents jumping out of secondand third-story windows to escape the ”ames. High winds caused the “re to spread. Fire of“cials say four people, including a pregnant woman and a child, were taken to local hospitals with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Spring“eld Mayor Domenic Sarno says the city is working with the local American Red Cross of“cials to “nd temporary housing for 60 to 80 people displaced by the “re. The cause is still under investigation. Spring“eld is about 90 miles west of Boston.3.0-magnitude earthquake rattles parts of central OklahomaLANGSTON, Okla. (AP) „ A 3.0-magnitude earthquake has shaken parts of central Oklahoma. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was recorded at 1:50 p.m. Sunday about 9 miles north-northwest of Langston, which is about 43 miles north-northwest of Oklahoma City. The temblor was recorded at a depth of about 3 miles. No injuries or damage were reported. Geologists say damage is not likely in earthquakes below magnitude 4.0. Thousands of earthquakes have been recorded in Oklahoma in recent years, with many linked to the underground injection of wastewater from oil and natural gas production. Scientists have also linked earthquakes in Kansas, Texas and other states to wastewater injection. Oklahoma regulators have directed several oil and gas producers in the state to close injection wells or reduce volumes.North Carolina African-American veteran dies at age 100RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) „ A North Carolina woman believed to be one of the last African-American women to serve overseas during World War II has died at the age of 100. Haywood Funeral Home in R aleigh said on its website that Millie Dunn Veasey will be buried Monday at Raleigh National Cemetery. Her niece, Elsie Thompson, told WUNC that her aunts heart was tired.Ž After she graduated from high school in 1942, Veasey enlisted in what was called the Womens Army Auxiliary Corps. Her unit was the only all-black, all-female battalion to serve overseas during World War II. Veasey served in France and England with the unit, which sorted and routed mail for millions of American service members and civilians. She later became the “rst female president of the Raleigh NAACP.Art sale dispute heads to Massachusetts highest courtBOSTON (AP) „ The battle over the proposed sale of doz ens of works of art by a Massachusetts museum is headed to the states highest court. A single justice of the Supreme Judicial Court is scheduled to hear from both sides of the dispute Tuesday. The Berkshire Museum in Pitts“eld says it needs to sell the 40 pieces of art, including works by Norman Rockwell, to stay open and refocus its mission. Several people opposed to the sale say the art is a public resource. Lawyers for both sides will be given 10 minutes to speak to the court. The museum last month won the support of Attorney General Maura Healey to petition the court for permission to allow the sale, expected to raise up to $60 million.Plane that crashed in Maryland was destroyed on impactOCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) „ A preliminary report on a fatal plane crash last month off coastal Maryland has determined the Cessna 172S was destroyed on impact after hitting the water. The report issued Thursday by the National Transportation Safety Board noted other details leading up to the Feb. 28 crash off Assateague Island, but investigators are still piecing together what caused the plane with two passengers to crash. The Daily Times of Salisbury reported that the NTSB report said the plane left from Martin State Airport in Baltimore. Preliminary radar data shows the plane descended from 2,000 feet to 700 feet before radar coverage was lost. Rescue personnel found the plane and the body of one person, identi“ed as Marcson Ngwa. Passenger Benica Mesha RichardsRobinson, of Gwynn Oak, Maryland, is still missing.Pipe bomb found in Delaware home of man charged in blastELSMERE, Del. (AP) „ Another pipe bomb has been removed from the home a Delaware man arrested last week for detonating a similar device outside a nearby home. Media outlets reported that family members cleaning the home of Mark Consiglio found the bomb Saturday and called police. Residents within a two-block radius were evacuated from about 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. The device was safely destroyed. The 48-year-old Consiglio was charged March 12 with manufacturing, possessing and using an explosive device after he allegedly detonated a bomb outside the home of his estranged wifes family.

(AP) „ Firefighters in Colorado plucked eight animals they thought were puppies from a storm drain, only to find out later they were young red foxes. Video of the would-be rescue showed a Colorado Springs firefighter lifting the squirming foxes one by one from the storm drain and placing them on a sheet. The animals were then turned over to The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, where a vet determined they were not dogs but foxes. State wildlife manager Travis Sauder told CBS4 its not uncommon for people to come across young wild animals at this time of year. Sauder says the baby foxes would be returned to where they were found in hopes their mother was still around. If not, he says theyll be taken to a rehabilitation facility.ODD NEWS Colorado firefighters pluck baby foxes from storm drainYPG has distracted from “ghting IS. A Kurdish of“cial Sunday said the “ght against IS in northeastern Deir el-Zour province, where remnants of IS have remained, have been put on hold as the battle for Afrin unfolded. On Sunday, Kurdish of“cials said they had evacuated Afrin of civilians. Footage of long lines of vehicles leaving the town was aired on Syrian staterun TV. Fewer residents got out on foot or on motorcycles heading to government-controlled areas nearby. Later Sunday, limited “ghting was reported in some pockets in Afrin town while Turkish military said it was combing the area for land mines and explosives. In a press conference outside of Afrin, Kurdish of“cial Othman Sheik Issa said a new phase of the “ght will begin against Turkey, threatening hit-and-run tacticsŽ to target Turkish troops and its allied forces. He said YPG “ghters remain deployed in areas of Afrin. Our forces in all parts of Afrin will turn into a continuous nightmare for them,Ž Issa said. The resistance will continue in Afrin until it is all liberated and it goes back to its rightful owners.Ž Ankara launched the operation, codenamed Olive Branch, against the town and surrounding areas on Jan. 20, slowly squeezing the militia and hundreds of thousands of civilians into the town center. Forty six Turkish soldiers have been killed since then. Soon after Erdogan announced his forces and allied Syrian “ghters had seized Afrin, footage by Turkeys private Dogan news agency showed Syrian “ghters shooting in the air in celebration. Another Dogan video showed a Syrian “ghter shooting at a statue symbolizing the Kurdish new year celebrations that are also being held this week, before a bulldozer attempts to pull it down. The statue is of Kawa, a mythological “gure revered by the Kurds who defeated a brutal ruler in Irans Zagros mountains and lit “res to spread the news, ushering in spring. Turkish government spokesman Bekir Bozdag tweeted that Turkey would take steps to restore daily life and ensure access to food and health care. Our job is not done yet, we have a lot more work. But terror and terrorists in Afrin are over,Ž he said.CAPTUREFROM PAGE 1 HASAN KIRMIZITA/DHA-DEPO PHOTOS VIA APTurkey-backed Free Syrian Army soldiers patrol in the city center of Afrin, northwestern Syria, early Sunday. Associated Press they saw an unusually high in”ux of people going to the polls between noon and 2 p.m. A doctor at a hospital in the Ural mountains city told the AP that 2 p.m. was the deadline for health of“cials to report to their superiors that they had voted. People were coming in all at once, (they) were entering in groups as if a tram has arrived at a stop,Ž said one of the observers, Sergei Krivonogov The voters were taking pictures of the pocket calendars or lea”ets that poll workers distributed, seemingly as proof of voting, he said. Other examples from observers and social media included ballot boxes being stuffed with extra ballots in multiple regions; an election of“cial assaulting an observer; CCTV cameras obscured by ”ags or nets from watching ballot boxes; discrepancies in ballot numbers; last-minute voter registration changes likely designed to boost turnout; and a huge pro-Putin sign in one polling station. Election of“cials moved quickly to respond to some of the violations. They suspended the chief of a polling station near Moscow where a ballot-stuf“ng incident was reported and sealed the ballot box. A man accused of tossing multiple ballots into a box in the far eastern town of Artyom was arrested. Overall national turnout was expected to be a little more than 60 percent, which would be several points below turnout in Putins electoral wins in 2000, 2004 and 2012. He did not run in 2008 because of term limits, but was appointed prime minister, a role in which he was widely seen as leader. Putins most vehement foe, anticorruption campaigner Alexei Navalny, was barred from running Sunday because he was convicted of fraud in a cas e widely regarded as politically motivated. Navalny and his supporters had called for an election boycott but the extent of its success could not immediately be gauged.PUTINFROM PAGE 1 there is NO COLLUSION!Ž They were his “rst direct tweets to name the special counsel. It is true that some Mueller investigators have contributed to Democratic political candidates, including Trumps 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton. But Justice Department policy and federal service law bar discrimination in the hiring of career positions on the basis of political af“liation, and experts say there is no rule barring such donations. Mueller, a Republican himself, was appointed FBI director by a GOP president, George W. Bush. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, an ex-U.S. attorney under Bush and Democratic President Barack Obama, was named to the Justice Department post by Trump and put in charge of Muellers investigation by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a former Republican senator tapped by Trump for his Cabinet. Sessions stepped aside from overseeing the investigation after the Justice Department acknowledged he had spoken twice with the Russian ambassador in 2016 and had failed to disclose the contacts during his Senate con“rmation process. You seem to have forgotten, Mr. President, that there is at least one very notable Republican on Muellers team „ Mueller,Ž said California Rep. Adam Schiff, top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. And his boss, Rod Rosenstein, appointed by Bush. And his boss, Jeff Sessions, also Republican and chosen by ... you.Ž The Associated Press reported that McCabe kept personal memos detailing interactions with the president that have been provided to Muellers of“ce and are similar to notes compiled by Comey. A skeptical Trump tweeted: Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was with me. I dont believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date. Same with lying James Comey. Can we call them Fake Memos?Ž It wouldnt be unusual for a senior of“cial to make notes soon after meeting with the president. The precise contents of McCabes memos are unknown, but they possibly could help substantiate McCabes assertion that he was unfairly maligned by a White House he says had declared warŽ on the FBI and Muellers investigation. They almost certainly contain, as Comeys memos did, previously undisclosed details about encounters between the Trump administration and FBI that could be of interest to Mueller. Sessions said he dismissed McCabe on the recommendation of FBI disciplinary of“cials who said McCabe had not been candid with a watchdog of“ce investigation. McCabe has disputed the allegations and said his credibility had been attacked. It is part of this administrations ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the special counsel investigation, which continue to this day,Ž he said. Also over the weekend, Trumps personal lawyer, John Dowd, cited the brilliant and courageous exampleŽ by Sessions and the FBIs Of“ce of Professional Responsibility and said Rosenstein should bring an endŽ to the Russia investigation manufacturedŽ by Comey.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOSIn this March 15, le photo, President Donald Trump talks with reporters during a meeting in the Oval Oce of the White House. business and expertise in an attempt to diversify and modernize a sclerotic economy that historically has relied on oil and foreign guest workers. He is promoting a development plan he calls Saudi Vision 2030. The White House meeting comes after Mohammeds vow to acquire nuclear weapons if Tehran is allowed to build them. Irans nuclear program was largely dismantled under a 2015 agreement, but Trump has threatened to scrap the deal it unless Iran and other signatories agree to numerous revisions. That has raised fears of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, already one of the worlds most volatile regions. Mohammed is widely viewed as a reformer at home. But his actions are progressive only in the Saudi context of an ultra-conservative society that practices a rigid form of Islam. He has led changes that will allow women to drive in the kingdom, that will reopen movie theaters and allow some foreign musicians to perform, and that have begun to permit more mixing between men and women at some public events. He also has reined in the unpopular religious police, who enforce regulations, including attendance at prayers and strict public dress codes. But numerous limitations remain. The social openings have bene“ted the growing number of Saudis ages 18 to 35, while maintaining restraints on political freedoms. But Mohammed has stumbled in several episodes. Last year, he ordered the detention of hundreds of wealthy businessmen, including members of the royal family. Many were con“ned for weeks to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Riyadh and were released only after they had agreed to turn over cash and shares in their companies. Saudi authorities portrayed the arrests as a crackdown on rampant corruption and said they recovered more than $106 billion in assets from targets of the investigations. But they did not release details of the “nancial settlements or the charges they faced, citing privacy concerns. While many Saudis welcomed the crackdown, others questioned whether the arrests were really a “nancial shakedown or an attempt to sideline the princes potential rivals for the throne. Even as Mohammed promoted his anti-corruption drive and budget cuts, reports surfaced of his purchases of a $325 million, 440-foot yacht from a Russian vodka tycoon, a $450 million painting by Leonardo da Vinci and a $300 million chateau near Paris that has been called the worlds most expensive home. More serious was his decision, as Saudi defense minister, to intervene in the civil war in neighboring Yemen in a military campaign that humanitarian groups say has led to widespread atrocities. Instead of a quick victory, Saudi Arabia is mired in a war against Iran-aligned Houthi rebels. Saudi airstrikes „ some backed by U.S. intelligence and using U.S.-supplied munitions „ have killed thousands of people, according to human rights groups, and have struck schools, medical facilities and other civilian targets. Mohammed will “nd a warm welcome at the White House, however. He began working with Trumps son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, soon after the 2016 election, and the two orchestrated Trumps visit to the kingdom last year. Kushners recent loss of a top-secret security clearance may limit his role, however. The State Department has no ambassador posted to Saudi Arabia, and other key Middle East posts are also empty.PRINCEFROM PAGE 1 In this June 21, 2017, le photo, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, departs Capitol Hill following a closed door meeting in Washington.

From sta and wire reports. ENTERTAINMENT NEW YORK „ Not since AvatarŽ has a box-of“ce hit had the kind of staying power of Black Panther.Ž Ryan Cooglers comic-book sensation on Sunday became the “rst “lm since James Camerons 2009 smash to top the weekend box of“ce “ve straight weekends. The Disney release grossed $27 million in ticket sales over the weekend, according to studio estimates, pushing its domestic haul to $605.4 million. Worldwide, Black PantherŽ has grossed more than $1.1 billion. Though Black PantherŽ has had little competition to contend with throughout February and March, such consistency is especially rare in todays movie-going world. Before Avatar,Ž the last “lm to do it was 1999s The Sixth Sense.Ž That left second place to the MGM-Warner Bros. rebooted Tomb Raider,Ž starring Alicia Vikander as the archaeologist adventurer Lara Croft. The $90 million “lm opened with $23.5 million, largely failing to stir much excitement among moviegoers. Critics gave it mediocre reviews (49 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and ticket-buyers responded with a meh,Ž giving it a B CinemaScore. With Vikander stepping in for Angelina Jolie, Roar Uthaugs Tomb RaiderŽ is an attempt to rekindle a video game-adapted franchise that faded quickly the “rst time around. The 2001 original opened $47.7 million and grossed $274.7 million worldwide, but the big-budget 2003 sequel ”opped, opening with $21.8 million domestically and grossing $156.5 million worldwide. Jeff Goldstein, distribution chief for Warner Bros., said Tomb RaiderŽ came close to studio expectations in North America but that international ticket sales were a primary focus. Tomb RaiderŽ was no. 1 overseas, grossing $84.5 million, including a $41.1 million in China. International was always a key part of the strategy,Ž Goldstein said. Of course, the continuing success of Black PantherŽ also didnt help Tomb Raider.Ž When release dates were being set a year ago, few could have foreseen Black PantherŽ no. 1 “ve weeks in. How could you?Ž Goldstein said. Black PantherŽ has shown considerably fewer legs in China, however. Though it has grossed $96 million in two weeks of release in China, Black PantherŽ slid steeply in its second weekend. Yet last week, Black PantherŽ even bested Disneys own A Wrinkle in Time,Ž Ava DuVernays adaptation of Madeleine LEngles 1962 novel of the same name. In its second week, A Wrinkle in TimeŽ dropped 50 percent with $16.6 million in ticket sales. The surprise of the weekend was the Lionsgate-Roadside Attractions Christian drama I Can Only Imagine,Ž which grossed $17.1 million on 1,629 screens „ less than half the number that Black Panther,Ž Tomb RaiderŽ and A Winkle in TimeŽ played on. The “lm, which costars Dennis Quaid and Cloris Leachman, cost only $7 million to make. It stars J. Michael Finley as the singer behind one of the most popular Christian songs, by the band MercyMe. I Can Only ImagineŽ doubled expectations by sticking to the typical tactic of faith-basedŽ releases with a grassroots marketing effort that focused on Southern, Southwestern and suburban moviegoers. Eighty percent of the audience was over 35. Its the biggest opening weekend ever for Roadside Attractions, the 15-year-old indie distributor whose previous titles include MudŽ and Manchester by the Sea.Ž We did really work the “lm. Starting with the beginning of October, we were screening the “lm for faith-based in”uencers,Ž said Roadside co-founder Howard Cohen. So it had a really classic playbook for these type of movies. But a lot of movies do it and it doesnt work as well.Ž Playing to a virtually opposite audience was 20th Century Foxs Love, Simon,Ž the “rst “lm from a major Hollywood studio featuring a gay teen protagonist. Whereas I Can Only ImagineŽ catered to the suburbs, Love, SimonŽ thrived mainly in urban areas. Greg Berlantis “lm, adapted from the best-selling young-adult novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,Ž stars Nick Robinson as a gay 17-year-old who has yet to come out when another closeted boy from his high school begins an anonymous e-mail romance. The “lm garnered strong reviews (91 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences agreed, giving it an A-plus CinemaScore. I feel good that we released this “lm. I feel great that we had the kind of exit polls that we did,Ž said Chris Aronson, distribution chief for Fox. I think audiences are going to continue to “nd this jewel of a “lm that Greg Berlanti created.Ž According to comScore, the weekend was down 50 percent from the same weekend in 2017 when Disneys Beauty and the BeastŽ opened with a record-breaking $174.8 million. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers also are included. Final three-day domestic “gures will be released Monday. 1. Black Panther,Ž $27 million ($30 million international). 2. Tomb Raider,Ž $23.5 million ($84.5 million international). 3. I Can Only Imagine,Ž $17.1 million. 4. A Wrinkle in Time,Ž $16.6 million. 5. Love, Simon,Ž $11.5 million. 6. Game Night,Ž $5.6 million. 7. Peter Rabbit,Ž $5.2 million. 8. Strangers: Prey at Night,Ž $4.8 million. 9. Red Sparrow,Ž $4.5 million. 10. Death Wish,Ž $3.4 million.Black Panther tops box office for 5th straight weekendBy JAKE COYLEAP FILM WRITER AP FILE PHOTOSThis le image released by Disney and Marvel Studios shows Chadwick Boseman in a scene from Black Panther.Ž This le image released by Warner Bros.

(N) WORLD LONDON „ Britains foreign minister said Sunday that he has evidence Russia has been stockpiling a nerve agent in violation of international law very likely for the purposes of assassination.Ž Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the trail of blame for the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the English city of Salisbury leads inexorably to the Kremlin.Ž His comment came after a Russian envoy suggested the toxin used to poison the Skripals could have come from a U.K. lab. Johnson told reporters that Britain has information that within the last 10 years, the Russian state has been engaged in investigating the delivery of such agents, Novichok agents ... very likely for the purposes of assassination.Ž He said they have been producing and stockpiling Novichok, contrary to what they have been saying.Ž Johnson said he will brief European Union foreign ministers on the case Monday before meeting with NATO SecretaryGeneral Jens Stoltenberg. He also said of“cials from the Netherlandsbased Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons would arrive Monday in Britain to take samples of the nerve agent used to poison the Skripals. Britain says it is Novichok, a class of powerful nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union toward the end of the Cold War. Tests to independently verify the British “ndings are expected to take at least two weeks, Britains Foreign Of“ce said. Vladimir Chizhov, Moscows EU ambassador, said Russia has no chemical weapons stockpiles and was not behind the poisoning. Russia had nothing to do with it,Ž Chizhov told the BBC. Chizhov pointed out that the U.K. chemical weapons research facility, Porton Down, is only eight miles from Salisbury, where Sergei Skripal „ a former Russian intelligence of“cer convicted in his home country of spying for Britain„ and his daughter were found on March 4. They remain in critical condition. Asked whether he was saying that Porton Down was responsible, Chizhov replied: I dont know.Ž The British government dismissed the ambassadors suggestion as nonsense.Ž Johnson said it was not the response of a country that really believed itself to be innocent.Ž Britain and Russia have each expelled 23 diplomats, broken off high-level contacts and taken other punitive steps in the escalating tit-for-tat dispute, which clouded the run-up to Sundays presidential election in Russia. President Vladimir Putin is widely expected to win a fourth term. Western powers see the poisoning of the Skripals as the latest sign of increasingly aggressive Russian interference in foreign countries. Johnson said Britains National Security Council will meet this week to discuss what further measures the country might take. He said these could include defending ourselves against cyber-attack, (and) looking at any economic measures that could be taken against Russians who corruptly obtained their wealth.Ž Opposition lawmakers are calling on the British government to clamp down on the illicitly gained money of wealthy Russians in Britain. Critics say U.K. authorities have been slow to investigate the origins of the wealth invested in Londons “nancial district and property market. The spy dispute has sent U.K.-Russia relations to Cold War-levels of tension. Russias ambassador in London, Alexander Yakovenko, called for cooler heads,Ž telling the Mail on Sunday that the dispute is escalating dangerously and out of proportion.Ž But Russian presidential contender Ksenia Sobchak, a former TV star who is the only candidate to openly criticize Putin, said blame did not lie entirely with Britain. We dont have any improvements, everything is only getting worse,Ž she said. And this will continue, because this is our foreign policy: very aggressive and very unpleasant.ŽAmid spy row, UK accuses Russia of stockpiling nerve agentBy JILL LAWLESSASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOPeople walk passed the British Consulate General, in St.Petersburg, Russia, Saturday.

The Sun /Monday, March 19, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: Thirty years ago, when I was in my 40s, I was diagnosed with bronchiolitis, which was considered a disease of young children. When lying down in bed at night, I coughed to clear my rattly chest and suddenly could not breathe at all. It was terrifying, and just before passing out, my breath returned with the bray of a donkey. This happened several times over several nights, although never in the daytime. Thereafter, for weeks and weeks, I coughed until I vomited, I couldn't catch my breath, my ribcage hurt and my face and eyes were pued up from the strain of the coughing. For that, I was given steroids, I believe. It was about six weeks from the rst little tickle in my throat until the horrible experience ended. My question is, Could this have been whooping cough? „ E.O. ANSWER: It's impossible to be sure now, but I think it's very likely it was whooping cough. I have had letters from people whose symptoms lasted up to six months. It's quite horrible. The steroids sometimes can help with the airway inammation, but only early and appropriate antibiotics can really stop the six weeks to three months of intense coughing. DEAR DR. ROACH: Recently, I had an ultrasound on my gallbladder and liver, mainly to check on a polyp found on my gallbladder six months ago. There was no change in size, so my doctor isn't concerned. However, the ultrasound showed that I have an abdominal aortic dilation/aneurysm (2.9 cm). My doctor doesn't seem too concerned, suggesting that I follow a healthy diet and lose some weight. She said I'll have another ultrasound in a year. After looking up the condition online, it sounds rather serious. „ K.M. ANSWER: The aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body, coming directly o the left ventricle of the heart, arching in the top of the chest to provide blood to the head and arms, then progressing down the body, providing blood to the abdominal organs before it divides into the femoral arteries (to the legs) at about the level of the bellybutton. The aorta can become enlarged (dilated), and when large enough, it is referred to as an "abdominal aortic aneurism." Rupture of an AAA is disastrous: It usually is fatal, so when it is recognized, it is watched and intervention is undertaken before it becomes a high risk for rupture. AAAs are more likely in men, and the major risk factors are smoking, atherosclerosis and connective tissue diseases, such as Marfan's syndrome. Men between the ages of 65 and 75 with any history of smoking should be screened for an AAA. An ultrasound is a quick, safe, reliable way of screening. The diagnosis of an AAA depends on size: For most women, a level of 3 cm is a reasonable cuto. You are below that, so I understand why your doctor may want to check up on it. Assuming you don't smoke, it's important to control your blood pressure. A diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables was found to be protective against AAA. Being overweight may increase risk, so work with your doctor on losing weight. READERS: The booklet on macular degeneration explains this common eye ailment.

I honor our bond and have been open about my past, which has been colorful, to say the least. I was an addict. It was a long addiction that left me homeless and almost killed me many times. I have kept this part of my life a secret from everyone out of shame. I would love to be open about it with him and let him know how much drugs aected me, but I don't want to drive him away. Any advice is appreciated. „ Ex-Addict In California DEAR EX-ADDICT: In one sentence you say you have been open about your past; in the next you say you are keeping your addiction and what it cost you a secret. You don't say how long you have known this man, or whether you plan to make this relationship permanent. If you do, you should tell him about your entire past because, if he nds out some other way, THAT is what could cause him to end the relationship. DEAR ABBY: This may seem minor in the scheme of things, but it's driving me crazy. Occasionally we have a potluck day at work. The problem is, while there are always people who eat, others never bring food to share. It's usually the men in our oce „ those who hold higher positions and make far more money than the rest of us. They are also the ones who eat the most. They go back for seconds before the rest of us have eaten. If they do occasionally bring anything, it's usually a bag of chips. I'm tired of paying for their lunches when they are more than capable of providing something „ takeout from a deli or even asking their wives to help. „ Fed Up In Des Moines DEAR FED UP: Assign a list of what people need to bring to the potluck so there won't be duplication.

If you need to change your baby's diaper, carry plastic shopping bags with you, and put the diaper in them until you can get to a proper trash can. It's an unsanitary and unnecessary habit to j ust toss a used diaper any other place except into a trash can." „ Claire T., Scottsblu, Neb.

Page 10 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 19, 2018 WORLD MANILA, Philippines „ Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte urged other governments on Sunday to abandon the International Criminal Court, saying the world tribunal „ where hes facing a possible complaint for the thousands of killings of drug suspects under his crackdown „ is rude.Ž Although the Philippine Senate has rati“ed the Rome Statute that established the ICC, Duterte said in a speech that the treaty was never enforced in the country because it was not published in the government journal as required by law. As a result, Duterte said the international court can never have jurisdiction over him, not in a million years.Ž Last month, an ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, announced that she was opening a preliminary examination into a complaint by a Filipino lawyer of suspected extrajudicial killings under Dutertes anti-drug campaign, which could amount to crimes against humanity. The move angered Duterte, who announced Wednesday that he was withdrawing the Philippine rati“cation of the Rome Statute effective immediately,Ž citing a concerted effortŽ by Bensouda and U.N. human rights of“cials to paint me as a ruthless and heartless violator of human rights.Ž You know, if its not published, there is no law,Ž Duterte said Sunday in a speech before the annual graduation of cadets at the Philippine Military Academy in northern Baguio city. There was no reason to withdraw from something which is not existing,Ž Duterte said, adding that he announced the withdrawal from the ICC treaty to draw the worlds attention to the issue he had with the international court. I will convince everybody now who are under the treaty at ICC: Get out, get out, its rude,Ž the brash-talking president said. Dutertes action came under “re from human rights groups, who said the president was trying to evade accountability by backing out of the ICC. Critics say Duterte cant withdraw from the court by himself and may need the approval of the Senate, which rati“ed the Rome Statute in 2011. Commission on Human Rights chief Chito Gascon said that the Philippines has historically been at the forefront of the “ght for international justice, but that Dutertes decision constitutes a reversal that will be viewed as encouraging impunity to continue.Ž More than 120 countries have rati“ed the treaty that established the court in 2002 in The Hague. The court can intervene only when a state is unable or unwilling to carry out an investigation and prosecute perpetrators of heinous crimes like crimes against humanity, genocide, aggression and war atrocities. More than 4,000 mostly poor drug suspects have been killed under Dutertes drug crackdown, according to the national police, although human rights groups have reported larger death tolls. Duterte argued Wednesday that the killings do not amount to crimes against humanity, genocide or similar atrocities.Duterte urges nations to exit international courtBy JIM GOMEZASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this Feb. 13, 2018, le photo, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte addresses Filipino Overseas Workers who were repatriated from Kuwait at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in suburban Pasay city, southeast of Manila, Philippines. DUBAI, United Arab Emirates „ A British art teacher won a highlycompetitive $1 million teaching prize on Sunday for her work with innercity children in London, helping students feel welcome and safe in a borough with one of the highest murder rates in the country. Andria Za“rakou, 39, beat out some 30,000 applicants from around the world to win the Global Teacher Prize, which honors one exceptional teacher a year whos made a signi“cant contribution to the profession. The Alperton Community School teacher was awarded for her work in the London borough of Brent, one of the most ethnically diverse places in the country. Her students come from some of the poorest families in Britain with parents who dont necessarily speak English. She was credited for her efforts beyond the classroom, which include establishing relationships with parents, riding with students on the bus and standing at school gates with police of“cers to welcome students at the start of the day. Its always a nice thing sometimes to say hi to them in their language and then that just automatically makes them smile and it makes the connection with the child,Ž she told The Associated Press. Za“rakou is the “rst British teacher to win the award. Prime Minister Theresa May congratulated her in a video recording at the award ceremony. Being a great teacher requires resilience, ingenuity and a generous heart,Ž the prime minister said. These are the qualities that you share with your students every day. So, thank you for all you have done and continue to do.Ž Stunned and excited, the secondary school (high school) teacher began her speech saying, Wow!Ž She thanked her parents, who were in the audience, saying with laughter: The Greek family have arrived.Ž Za“rakou, who was born in London, also praised the beautifulŽ diversity of her schools population and said the students are intense in their pursuit of education despite living in crowded homes where it is hard to “nd a quiet place to study and where many have to care for their siblings after school. For many of our students, English is not the main language spoken at home. Its also a community where many of our students unfortunately live in challenging circumstances,Ž she said on stage. What is amazing is that whatever issues they are having at home, whatever is missing from their lives or causes them pain: Our school is theirs,Ž she said. Za“rakou, who works as an art and textiles teacher, stressed the importance of funding arts programs in schools. She said the arts help students think creatively, and teaches them resilience and perseverance. She told the AP that with the milliondollar prize shed like to think about a project for her community that celebrates creativity. The Global Teacher Prize was awarded in a star-studded ceremony in Dubai on Sunday hosted by Trevor Noah of the Daily Show.Ž Other celebrities present included Hollywood star Charlize Theron and Indian actress Priyanka Chopra. Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was on hand to present the prize. The award is presented by the Varkey Foundation. Its founder, Sunny Varkey, established the for-pro“t GEMS Education company, which has more than 250 schools around the world. Last year, Canadian teacher Maggie MacDonnell won the prize for her work with Inuit indigenous students in a remote and isolated Arctic village.

Ali El Guran brings his herd of more than 100 camels from southern Israel to the Dead Sea every November to pasture. Its birthing season and this year, 30 camels are pregnant. Bedouin lifestyles have changed dramatically in the last few decades, with many leaving their traditional nomadic ways to settle in towns of southern Israel, trading their camels for pickup trucks and living off tourists instead of goat herds. But for three months a year, El Guran and the other herders live as their forefathers have for generations. Its a simple life. The herders eat mainly bread and olive oil while drinking thick black coffee boiled on camp“res. They sleep under the stars, near the herd, for weeks at a time. There is no cellphone coverage or other modern amenities. El Guran and the others use the time to bond with their sons who have come with them to the pastures, away from the distractions of the contemporary world. They speak to the camels in a special language, directing them where to graze. About a day before its time to give birth, the mother camels separate themselves from the herd, sometimes walking several kilometers (miles) to “nd a private spot. The herders later “nd them standing guard over the newborns, protecting them from wolves and jackals, the main predators in the area. El Guran sells some of the baby camels as well as camel milk to make a living. As winter comes to an end, the area gets very hot and the camels are taken to a higher elevation, where its cooler. Until next winter. Associated Press Photographer Oded Balilty gained rare access to the herders.

Burundis president sets May date for referendum on powerKIGALI, Rwanda (AP) „ Burundis president has signed a decree setting May 17 for a referendum on changes to the constitution that could keep him in power until 2034. The decree, shared online Sunday by Burundis U.N. ambassador and other of“cials, could lead to more unrest in the East African country that saw deadly political violence after the presidents disputed decision in 2015 to seek a third term. Opposition and human rights groups have called the referendum a plot by Nkur unziza to stay in power for life. The decree comes days after some ruling party members bestowed on him the title of Eternal supreme guide.Ž The proposed changes to the constitution include extending a presidential term from five years to seven. Human rights activists say some opposing the referendum already have been arrested.Palestinian stabs Israeli in Jerusalem, shot dead by policeJERUSALEM (AP) „ Israels Shin Bet security service says a Palestinian has stabbed an Israeli in Jerusalem, seriously wounding him. Police said he was shot dead by officers at the scene. The attack Sunday occurred in Jerusalems Old City, home to sensitive holy sites sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims. The Shin Bet said the attacker was from the West Bank city of Nablus. There has been a spike in violence since President Donald Trumps Dec. 6 recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital. Palestinians seek east Jerusalem as their future capital and view Trumps decision as siding with Israel. On Friday, a Palestinian killed two Israeli soldiers and badly wounded two others when he drove his car into them in the West Bank. Stabbings and car-ramming have been widely used by Palestinian assailants. WORLD NEWS BRIEFS

By GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressFONTANA, Calif. „ Martin Truex Jr. saw nothing but clean air and green flags down the stretch in his first victory of the new NASCAR Cup season. Truex didnt get much of a look at Kevin Harvick, whose bid for four straight wins was ruined by an early crash at Fontana. So even while Truexs Furniture Row Racing Toyota team celebrated, it was a wee bit disappointed not to get a duel with the early-season king. I think we would have had something for him today,Ž team owner Barney Visser said. Truex roared to victory at Fontana on Sunday, beating Kyle Larson by 11 seconds to claim the first win of the season for last years series champion. Truex won both stages before rolling to the checkered flag on his 16th career victory and his first since that glorious championship day at Homestead last November. His first career victory at Fontana even moved Truex into the overall points lead, thanks to Harvicks woes. Harvick dragged his damaged car to a 35thplace finish after early contact with Larson ruined his day. But after dominating at Auto Club Speedway, Truexs team was no longer certain Harvick has the fastest ride in the field. It just feels good to win,Ž said Truex, who became the third driver to win from the pole at Fontana. I dont really worry about who else is fast. Obviously (Harvick) has been quick. Theyve got a great team, and Kevin is an awesome driver. But as weve seen today, we can put together a run as well.ŽAUTO RACING: NASCARTruex Jr. earns first win of season SEE NASCAR, 3 SEE RAYS, 6AP PHOTOLoyola-Chicago guard Clayton Custer (13) scores in the final seconds of a second-round game Saturday in Dallas.

DeRozan picked up two technicals in the following 22 seconds. He tried to smack me because I had a layup,Ž a visibly frustrated DeRozan said. I got fouled.Ž Having reviewed the video, Casey said the Raptors would file a formal complaint. Officials are going to miss calls but, at the juncture of the game when some of the calls were made, weve got to get it right around the league,Ž Casey said. Not just this game, the entire league.Ž Still, Casey took pains to point out that the Raptors, not the referees, were ultimately to blame. We made enough mistakes down the stretch also,Ž Casey said. We shot ourselves in the foot, missed easy shots, layups, free throws, turnovers.Ž DeRozan, however, didnt share Caseys view. Asked whether the officials had cost Toronto the game, DeRozan said, Its obvious for us.Ž Delon Wright and C.J. Miles each scored 15 points, and Pascal Siakam and Jonas Valanciunas each had 10 for the Raptors.ROCKETS 129, TIMBERWOLVES 120: James Harden had 34 points and 12 assists, and Houston held off a fourth-quarter rally to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 129-120 on Sunday night for the Rockets 26th win in 28 games. The Wests top team led by as many as 25 before the Timberwolves, holding on for dear life in a tightening playoff race, pulled within “ ve in the fourth. The loss dropped the Wolves into the eighth playoff spot after they started the day in a threeway tie for “ fth. Harden had 11 points in the “ nal 6:34, including a 3-pointer with 58 seconds left that effectively secured the win. Chris Paul and Clint Capela each had 16 points for the Rockets. Jeff Teague led Minnesota with 23 points, Andrew Wiggins had 21, and KarlAnthony Towns and Jamal Crawford each added 20. PELICANS 108, CELTICS 89: Anthony Davis had 34 points and 11 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the bangedup Boston Celtics 108-89 on Sunday night. Secondyear pro Cheick Diallo had a season-high 17 points and Nikola Mirotic added 16 for New Orleans, which was desperate to win after dropping four of its previous “ ve while in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race. Jayson Tatum scored 23 for Boston, which has lost three of four and was playing its third straight game without either AllStar guard Kyrie Irving (sore left knee) or guard Marcus Smart (sprained right thumb).NBA ROUNDUPThunder end Raptors 11-game win streakAssociated PressLAS VEGAS „ In a game that included William Karlssons natural hat trick and MarcAndre Fleury getting his 48th career shutout and 401st win, Vegas coach Gerard Gallant credited a hit by forward Ryan Reaves as the biggest play. Barely two minutes into the second period, Reaves „ acquired from Pittsburgh on Feb. 23 „ flattened TJ Brodie with a blast that sidelined Calgarys defenseman the remainder of the game while sparking the Golden Knights recent stagnant offense. That was the difference,Ž Gallant said Vegas 3-0 win over the Flames on Sunday. That changed the game around. It was a big, clean hit. Ryans been here for 10, 11, 12 games with us right now and hes doing a good job, hes playing his role real good and that hit changed the game around for sure.Ž Colin Miller also scored as Vegas snapped a four-game home losing streak and improved to 25-9-2 at T Mobile Arena. In splitting its last four games, the Golden Knights had been outscored 15-10 and hadnt scored more than three goals in a game since a 4-0 win at Detroit on March 8. We werent happy with the way we played over the last couple of weeks,Ž Gallant said. We had some real good games in there, we had some games where I thought we played OK and lost. Tonight I thought we had a tough first period and we played real good to battle back and win an important game.Ž Fleury, who made his 20th start in 21 g ames, stopped 42 shots for his fourth shutout of the season, He also moved into a tie with Chris Osgood for 12th on the NHLs career wins list. I thought we played well in our zone and came out as a group together and created that way as a team going down on the other side,Ž Fleury said. I could see most pucks, and that makes a big difference and when there (were) rebounds, they took their guys away. Its the little things that makes a big difference in a game.Ž Vegas improved to 3-0-0 against Calgary while outscoring the Flames 15-5. The teams meet once more, in the regular-season finale at Calgary on April 7. Mike Smith stopped 27 shots as the Flames, one of the leagues better road teams this season, dropped to 20-11-6 away from home. That team were playing there, they can score,Ž Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said. They got some juice from a mistake and they got their juice started with the power play. We just couldnt put one past them „ especially early.Ž The Flames outshot the Golden Knights, 20-6, in the first period. But with the game scoreless early in the second, Brodie looked to clear the puck as he came from behind the net when Reaves leveled him and sent the 18,075 fans in attendance into a frenzy. I hope it got a little energy into the boys,Ž Reaves said. But big goals at big times, we needed to get the first one. Weve been struggling to get the first goals the last couple of games, so getting the first one is even bigger. ... The last two games weve come out in the first period kind of lazy and waiting for the game to go, we did it again today. Thats when I go and try and find a spark, whether its a hit or a fight, or just getting in somebodys face, thats what I try and bring to the team.ŽAVALANCHE 5, RED WINGS 1: Nathan MacKinnon kept up his torrid scoring with two goals and an assist, Semyon Varlamov was sharp in making 37 saves and the Colorado Avalanche extended Detroits skid to 10 straight games by beating the Red Wings 5-1 on Sunday. Gabriel Landeskog, Blake Comeau and Tyson Barrie also scored to help the Avalanche remain in playoff position with 10 games remaining. The Avs have 86 points after “ nishing with a league-low 48 last season. Justin Abdelkader had a goal for the Red Wings, who fell to 0-9-1 during a winless streak in which theyve been outscored by a 41-19 margin. Its the teams longest winless streak since a 12-game run in 1989. FLYERS 6, CAPITALS 3: Wayne Simmonds scored two goals to lift the Flyers past the Washington Capitals 6-3 on Sunday night, capping a four-point weekend and helping Philadelphia solidify its playoff position. Oskar Lindblom, Shayne Gostisbehere, Ivan Provorov and Jakub Voracek also had goals for Philadelphia (3725-11, 85 points), which stayed in third place in the Metropolitan Division and moved within four points of the “ rst-place Capitals (41-24-7, 89 points). The Flyers began play tied with Columbus, which was idle Sunday, but have a tiebreaker over the Blue Jackets. HURRICANES 4, ISLANDERS 3: Trevor van Riemsdyk scored the go-ahead goal late in the third period and Scott Darling made 26 saves as the Hurricanes beat the reeling Islanders 4-3 Sunday. Van Riemsdyks second goal of the season came on a long slap shot with 6:49 remaining to help snap Carolinas three-game losing streak and continue the late season swoon by the Islanders, who have just one win their last 12 games. Jaccob Slavin, Lee Stempniak and Victor Rask also scored for the Hurricanes.NHL ROUNDUP Karlssons hat trick helps Knights put out FlamesAP PHOTOTorontos Pascal Siakam, center, drives against Oklahoma Citys Jerami Grant as the Thunders Patrick Patterson, left, looks on during Sundays game in Toronto.

McIlroy ran off five birdies over his last six holes and closed with an 8-under 64 for a threeshot victory. He won for the first time since the Tour Championship on Sept. 25, 2016, the day Palmer died. I wish I walked up that hill and got a handshake from him,Ž McIlroy said. But Im so happy to put my name on that trophy.Ž Bay Hill was rocking all afternoon, mostly for that red shirt. Woods, who started the final round five shot behind, made three birdies in a four-hole stretch to start the back nine and was within shot of the lead as everyone behind him on the course appeared to stall. One shot changed everything. Woods couldnt commit to a swing with his driver on the par-5 16th hole and sent it far and left „ way left „ over a fence and out-of-bounds, sending him to a bogey when he couldnt afford anything less than birdie. He finished bogeybogey-par for a 3-under 69 and tumbled down the leaderboard into a tie for fifth. Thats about when McIlroy pulled away. Until then, five players were separated by one shot. Before long, McIlroy was leaving everyone in his wake. He made a 15-foot birdie putt on the 13th to take the lead over hard-luck Henrik Stenson, and then rolled one in from 20 feet on the next hole. If that wasnt enough, McIlroy chipped in from 40 feet on the 15th hole, and then pounded a 375-yard drive on the 16th that set up a two-putt birdie. Bryson DeChambeau made the last run at him, gouging a shot out of the rough, over the water and onto the green at No. 16 and pumping his fist when the eagle putt caught enough of the cup to drop in. That put him one shot behind. McIlroy, however, wasnt finished. He left his putt about 25 feet above the hole on No. 18, roughly the same spot from where Woods made birdie putts to win in 2001, 2008 and 2009. Woods slammed his cap to the ground in 2008, not realizing he had done that. McIlroy buried the putt, raised both arms in the air and turned to slam his fist as the grandstands erupted with cheers. Ive seen Tiger make that enough times to know what it does,Ž McIlroy said. So I just wanted to try and emulate that. Didnt quite give it the hat toss „ I was thinking about doing it. But just to be able to create my own little bit of history on the 18th green here is pretty special.Ž That gave him a twoshot lead, and he was a winner for the 22nd time worldwide when DeChambeau failed to hole out from the fairway for eagle. DeChambeau made bogey from the bunker on the 18th for a 68 and finished alone in second. Justin Rose lingered all day but was never a threat over the final hour, instead watching McIlroy put on a stunning charge. Rory played incredible golf and it was fun „ great to see world class players do that,Ž Rose said after a 67. Its not great to see him make putts because he was making them against me. But when he is making putts, hes incredibly hard to beat. So it was fun to watch him play.Ž Stenson lost a third chance in four years to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He led by as many as two shots on the front nine before the putts stopped falling. Two shots behind playing the 16th, Stenson three-putted for par and bogeyed the final hole for a 71. He finished fourth. Woods tied for fifth with Ryan Moore (71), and now heads to the Masters with plenty of momentum „ just not a victory. He finished one shot behind last week at Innisbrook. He was oneshot behind with three holes to play at Bay Hill, though it would have needed more than just a few birdies the way McIlroy played. Even so, Woods finished among the top 12 in all three events in the Florida Swing. His next stop is the Masters, where he will be a favorite to win his fifth green jacket. And to think that just over six months ago, Woods hadnt been cleared by his doctors to hit balls after fusion surgery on his lower back, his fourth back surgery dating to the spring of 2014. If you would have asked me at the beginning of the year that I would have had a chance to win two golf tournaments, I would have taken that in a heartbeat,Ž he said. McIlroy was relieved for other reasons. He went through an injuryplagued 2017 and failed to win anywhere in the world. He was coming of f a missed cut a week ago in the Valspar Championship. And now hes a winner again, with the Masters looming. McIlroy needs only a green jacket to complete the career Grand Slam.By JANIE McCAULEYAssociated PressSTANFORD, Calif. „ Tara VanDerveer offered up the perfect game-plan to stymie Florida Gulf Coasts fabulous 3-point shooters: Send them to the ailing, undermanned Golden State Warriors on Monday so Stanfords defense might get a break. Well take em!Ž Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Sunday by text message. He cant have them,Ž Florida Gulf Coast quickly posted on Twitter in response. Thing is, the defending NBA champions have an off day „ so VanDerveer will have to prepare her fourth-seeded Cardinal to face the nations best deep threat in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Stanford (23-10) won its 19th straight firstround game and will try to advance to its 11th straight Sweet Sixteen facing a 12th-seeded Eagles team (31-4) on quite a roll. FGCU, without a single 6-footer on the roster, has won 11 straight games and 21 of 22 after its 80-70 upset of No. 5 seed Missouri in Saturdays first game at Maples Pavilion. Were not going to try and be taller than them,Ž FGCU coach Karl Smesko said. The Eagles shot just 7 for 17 on 3s in their first-round victory, but found their reliable rhythm of scoring on layups or driving and kicking out to the perimeter threats. Their three-point shooting is exceptional,Ž VanDerveer said. Its going to be a very tough challenge for us.Ž VanDerveer and her team defeated FGCU as the Hall of Fame coach won her milestone 900th career game at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, in November 2013. She has long since gone over 1,000. We are playing one of the most storied programs in womens college basketball history tomorrow with an opportunity to make the Sweet 16,Ž Smesko said, noting the Eagles must move forward from the thrill of their first-round upset. Cardinal freshman Kiana Williams dazzled in her NCAA debut Saturday, scoring 21 points with five 3-pointers while pushing the tempo on offense as the Cardinal earned a lopsided first-round win against Gonzaga. Florida Gulf Coast senior China Dow, who helped lead the way on both ends in the first round, understands the daunting task ahead for the Eagles to extend their special March run. Stanford boasts an incredible 35-4 record in NCAA games at home. Florida Gulf Coast is in the NCAA tournament for the fifth time in seven years with Division I postseason eligibility and won an NCAA game for the first time since beating Oklahoma State in 2015. The environment is going to be tough to play in. At the same time, we have fans down here who can be loud, too, whenever we score,Ž Dow said. I think its the hype against playing against those fans. I have never been in an environment like Stanford, so if it works out, it will be fun.Ž The Sun / Monday, March 19, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3AP PHOTOSTiger Woods tees off during the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge Sunday in Orlando. Truex took the lead for good with 32 laps left by getting past Kyle Busch, who finished third. Brad Keselowski was fourth. People kept asking, When are you going to win again?Ž said Truex, who led 125 laps overall. When are you going to win any stages? Well, here you go.Ž When Truex got a series of post-race questions about Harvick, the defending champ suggested that Furniture Row proved early on that it can hang with Stewart-Haas Racing. That first pit stop was under green, and he came in pretty close (to me),Ž Truex said. We left pit road, and I drove away from him. That was the only gauge I really had of that. ... Im sure well have plenty of chances to race each other throughout the rest of the season.Ž Here are more things to know about the race at Fontana:KEVINS SMACK Harvicks bid to become the 14th driver ever to win four strai g ht races ended when he hit the wall after side-toside contact with Larson on the 37th lap. Harvicks flapping bumper was the most obvious problem, but he made a nice save down the track to avoid an interior wall. Harvick took the blame for the mistake. I went down to side-draft and (Larson) was coming up and we touched, and it just knocked the thing to the right and spun out,Ž Harvick said. I dont know that its his fault. I think thats my fault for coming down the racetrack right there and trying to side-draft, and then as we touch, it just came back up the racetrack. I was just trying to get a little too much right there.Ž Harvicks car was repaired, and he managed to earn two standings points. Harvick had won in Atlanta, Las Vegas and Phoenix before arriving in his home state for an attempt to become the second driver in this century to win four straight.CLEAN SWEEPTruex won both stages and a race for the third time in his career. He also accomplished the feat at Las Vegas and Chicagoland during his championship 2017 season. I would have liked to be one spot better, but I couldnt even see Martin,Ž said Larson, the races defending champion.JJ IN 9THSix-time Fontana champ Jimmie Johnson finished ninth for his first top-10 finish of the season, ending a 10-race skid outside the top 10 „ the worst such stretch of his career. Johnsons winless streak reached 28 races, also his longest in a career that began in 2001.BACK AND FORTH Truex and Busch traded the lead during the final stage, but Busch had a problematic pit stop that left his car handling poorly.

The Ramblers will get another pregame prayer from Sister Jean, their 98-year-old team chaplain who also provides her own scouting reports and notes of encouragement to the Ramblers. Jean Dolores Schmidt was in Dallas, and plans to be in Atlanta as well. Along with their national title, the Ramblers went to the Sweet 16 in their last NCAA Tournament 33 y ears a g o before Patrick Ewing and Georgetown beat them in the third round. But when Moser arrived in 2011, and endured a 7-23 debut season with only one win in the Horizon League, there was little interest in the program that would move to the Missouri Valley Conference two years later. Moser, an assistant coach for the late Rick Ma j erus at St. Louis before that, recalls only a couple hundred people at games, and his family walking through the student union with more people there than in the basketball arena. Still, Moser had a plan, one without shortcuts, to create a winning culture. Im blessed, so blessed that Loyola University, the administrators, the fan base, they were steadfast on how I was sa y in g I was going to do it with good kids, good people. We werent going to bend on the academic reputation,Ž he said. All our kids graduate. Weve got high-character kids, and it was a credit to them. And in this day and age, because I know fan bases all over want it so fast.Ž Time after time when speaking to groups and fans, the coach who is from the Chicago area re p eatedl y asked p eo p le to imagine Loyola getting back to the NCAA Tournament „ and advancing. I just kept on pounding that vision,Ž Moser said. It isnt just me. It is an absolute wide stretch of people at Loyola that has had that vision to do it the right way with a good foundation of great kids, great student-athletes.Ž Everybody can surely see that now.RAMBLERSFrom Page 1 NCAA TOURNAMENT ROUND OF 32A look at Sundays second-round games Sundays starHaarms race: Purdue freshman Matt Haarms made his “ rst start of the season in place of star Boilermakers center Isaac Haas, who broke his elbow in Fridays win over Cal State Fullerton. Despite missing an easy layup early on, the 7-foot-3 freshman had two blocks, seven points and “ ve rebounds in the “ rst twenty minutes.In the spotlightSeveral top NBA prospects are out of NCAAs Many of the freshman stars who garnered so much of the college basketball worlds attention during the regular season have already been bounced from March Madness. Arizonas Deandre Ayton, Oklahomas Trae Young, Missouris Michael Porter Jr., Alabamas Collin Sexton and Texas Mohamed Bamba are all considered potential NBA lottery picks whenever they decide to turn pro. Theyre also all out of the NCAA Tournament after facing the harsh reality that so metimes individual talent isnt enough in March. Sexton is the only freshman from that group who even reached the second round. I hate losing,Ž Young said after Oklahomas “ rstround overtime loss to Rhode Island. Thats not in my DNA, losing.Ž One lesson these freshmen are learning is r ather obvious: It always helps to be surrounded by experienced players or equally talented freshmen. Only three of the top seven prospects from the 2017 recruiting class according to the 247Sports Composite remain in the tournament. Its probably no coincidence that all three of them play for the same school: Duke. Dukes Marvin Bagley, Trevon Duval and Wendell Carter Jr. are in the regional semi“ nals after helping the Blue Devils win their “ rst two NCAA Tournament games by an average margin of 23 points. Many of the notable freshmen who were ousted from the NCAA Tournament played well. Young had 28 points and seven assists against Rhode Island. Ayton had 14 points and 13 rebounds in Arizonas loss to Buffalo. Bamba had 13 points and 14 rebounds before fouling out of an overtime loss to Nevada. Porter played just three games for Missouri all season because of a lower back injury that required surgery, but he had 16 points and 10 rebounds against Florida State. Sexton averaged 21 points in his two NCAA Tournament games. For anybody not to remember Deandre as the greatest freshman that ever walked through Arizona, they werent paying attention, statistically and just the type of kid he is,Ž Arizona coach Sean Miller said. Nevada 75, Cincinnati 73: Josh Hall converted an offensive rebound for the tiebreaking basket with 9.1 seconds left as Nevada erased a 22-point de“ cit in the “ nal 11 minutes of a stunning 75-73 victory over Cincinnati. Nevadas stirring comeback „ the second-largest in tournament history „ came just two days after the seventh-seeded Wolf Pack rallied from 14 points down to beat Texas 87-83 for its “ rst NCAA victory since 2007. The Wolf Pack (28-7) move on to an all-upstart South Region semi“ nal matchup with 11th-seeded LoyolaChicago (30-5) on Thursday night. Nothing feels better than this,Ž Nevada coach Eric Musselman said. Nothing. Sweet 16!Ž Cincinnati, the No. 2 seed, never trailed until Halls tiebreaking basket but watched its lead disintegrate as it failed to make a basket in the “ nal 5:45. With the game tied in the closing seconds, Hall got a rebound off a missed shot by Cody Martin. Hall made a move in the paint and then hit the winning basket. Cincinnati (31-5) never got off a shot before the buzzer. Cane Broome brie” y lost control of the ball and then passed to the area of Gary Clark as the “ nal seconds ticked away. South RegionTexas A&M 86, North Carolina 65: T.J. Starks scored 21 points and Texas A&M overpowered North Carolina inside, upsetting the reigning national champions 86-65 Sunday in the NCAA Tournament to mark the second straight year a title holder missed the Sweet 16. The seventh-seeded Aggies (22-12) did everything they had to do to hand the Tar Heels a rare loss in a home-state NCAA game. They dominated the glass. They used their size to control the paint and block shots. And they pounced when UNCs small-ball lineup couldnt make an outside shot. Robert Williams “ nished with 13 rebounds, helping the Aggies take a 50-36 edge while shooting 52 percent „ including 10 of 24 from 3-point range. Joel Berry II scored 21 points in his “ nal game for the second-seeded Tar Heels (26-11), who were trying to reach their third straight Final Four. But they ended up falling to 34-2 in NCAA games in their home state, the only other loss coming in 1979.West RegionPurdue 76, Butler 73: Dakota Mathias sank a 3-pointer with 14.2 seconds left and second-seeded Purdue, minus star center Isaac Haas, held off 10th-seeded Butler 76-73 on Sunday to reach the Sweet 16 for the second consecutive year. The Boilermakers (30-6) led by as many as 10 points in the second half, but Butler (21-14) cut the de“ cit to two and had the ball in the “ nal minute. Kalen Martin missed a 3-pointer, and the shot by Mathias at the other end made it 76-71. Martin scored with 2.1 seconds remaining, and P.J. Thompson missed the front end of a one-and-one, giving Butler another chance. The Bulldogs called a timeout with 1.8 seconds left, and Kamar Baldwins shot from near midcourt hit the rim „ although it may have been waved off on a review even if it had gone in. Vincent Edwards scored 20 points despite early foul trouble for Purdue, and Matt Haarms “ lled in capably for the injured Haas. The Boilermakers set a school record for victories in a season and are in the regional semi“ nals for the fourth time under coach Matt Painter. Purdue faces third-seeded Texas Tech on Friday in Boston. East Region By LARRY LAGEAssociated PressDETROIT „ Syracuse barely got into the NCAA Tournament, getting the 68th and final spot. The Orange have earned the right to keep playing in college basketballs showcase. And, no one will be excited about facing that zone defense. Tyus Battle had 17 points, Oshae Brissett scored 15, and 11th-seeded Syracuse zoned Michigan State out of the tournament, 55-53 on Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16. No one plays zone like we do,Ž Brissett said. Were always moving „ and we challenge every shot „ so teams never get easy looks against us. Thats why nothing surprises me with our defense.Ž Syracuse (23-13) will face second-seeded Duke (28-7) on Friday in the Midwest Region semifinals. Playing in his hometown with a chance to add another highlight-reel shot to this years NCAA Tournament, Cassius Winston missed an opportunity to win the game for the third-seeded Spartans with a shot from about 45 feet just before the buzzer. Its one of those shots you shoot as a kid,Ž he said softly. I just came up short.Ž The Spartans came up short, long and wide all afternoon and didnt make a basket in the last 5:41. The Orange forced the Spartans (30-5) to settle for 3-pointers all afternoon and it worked brilliantly in a duel between Hall of Fame coaches. Michigan State took a school record 37 shots beyond the arc, making just eight. The last couple of jump shots they threw up, they werent in the ballpark,Ž Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim. Syracuse has won three straight since being sent to Dayton for the First Four as what the selection committee chairman acknowledged was the final team to receive an at-large bid. In lowscoring games, the Orange beat Arizona State in Dayton and TCU in the first round. They overcame playing three games in five days and essentially playing a road game, matching up with Michigan State about 75 miles from its campus with green-and-white clad fans packing the stands. As poorly as Michigan State shot, it had chances to escape with a victory. Miles Bridges missed a 3 with a chance to tie with 11 seconds left and teammate Joshua Langford missed a putback, but Syracuse turned the ball over with 7.9 seconds left. The Orange fouled intentionally to avoid giving up a game-tying 3 twice in the closing seconds and the Spartans made two pairs of free throws to pull within a point both times. Were always going to foul in those situations and its always worked for us,Ž Boeheim said. Ive seen too many guys when the guy makes a 3 and it goes into overtime.Ž Paschal Chukwu connected on one free throw with 2.4 seconds left and the miss gave Michigan State a chance to win in dramatic fashion, but Winston couldnt pull it off. Syracuse took the lead for the first time in the second half with 4:22 left. And then the Orange held on as the Spartans to miss their last 13 shots „ plus Winstons heave, which wasnt recorded as a shot attempt Bridges college career likely is ending with a performance he would like to forget. Its probably the saddest Ive ever been in my life,Ž Bridges said. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo acknowledged he expects Bridges to go pro. The sophomore star, who turned a chance to make millions in the NBA this season, was held scoreless for much of the first half and finished with 11 points on 4 of 18 shooting, making just 3 of 12 shots.Saving the best for lastClemson 84, Auburn 53: Gabe DeVoe scored 22 points and Elijah Thomas had 18 points and 11 rebounds for Clemson, which closed the “ rst half with a 25-4 run that helped it beat cold-shooting Auburn 84-53 and advance to the Midwest Region semi“ nal. In a matchup between Southern schools better known for football, the No. 5 seed Clemson Tigers proved far more adept on the hardwood than the No. 4 seed Auburn Tigers. The blowout win put Clemson (25-9) into the Sweet 16 for the fourth time overall and the “ rst since 1997, earning it a spot against Kansas in the regional semi“ nal. The “ nal 10 minutes of the “ rst half were a nightmare for Auburn, which made only 6 of 33 shots (18.2 percent) in the “ rst half and 17 of 66 overall (25.8 percent). Jared Harper made a jumper with 10:33 before halftime to pull Auburn to 18-15. The Tigers then missed their next 18 “ eld goals as Clemson raced to a 43-19 halftime lead.

Field is in his second camp with the Tampa Bay Rays, and while hes battling for the final spot on the roster, his performance this spring has made him a legitimate contender. You look at what hes done at Triple-A,Ž manager Kevin Cash said. Its been pretty consistent for two or three years. He just comes in, hes smart on the bases. He does a good job of playing defense, whether we put him at all three of the outfield spots. Hes one of those guys whose consistenc y sneaks up on you. Sometimes you dont even notice „ you never see him make mistakes. Thats ideally what youre looking for from a guy that can come in and fill a void off the bench.Ž The 26-year-old is batting .333 with three doubles, a home run and five RBI. Hes also making a bi g im p act defensivel y flashing the leather on a few diving catches. Field came into the spring with the hopes of making the Opening Day roster, but from the outside, it appeared as if the deck was stacked against him. For starters, the Rays had two outfielders no longer on the roster when s p rin g started, while also featuring a few more who are on the 40-man roster … something Field is not, meaning the Rays would have to DFA someone to make room for him. I try to go in every day and make an impression,Ž Field said. I think Im showing the team I can bring a lot to the table.Ž In his first full season at the Triple-A level last year, Field played in 111 games with 35 doubles, 12 home runs and 57 RBI. Field is competing with a handful of others for that fifth outfielder spot. His main competitions are Jason Coats and Brandon Snyder, with Micah Johnson also battling for that s p ot.By BRYAN LEVINESports WriterPORT CHARLOTTE „ Chris Archer looked strong in his start against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. In front of a packed Charlotte Sports Park, Archer tossed 5 ‡ innings of scoreless baseball, allowing just two hits over that span. All around today felt like a great progression,Ž Archer said. After my last start, we talked about being more efficient, and I was a lot more efficient today. I was able to work on things. I was experimenting still, and it was good to get the feedback that I got.Ž Archer totaled 74 pitches (46 for strikes) while striking out four batters. Archer set the tone,Ž manager Kevin Cash said. When we score, we want to shut the other team down. Archer came out and did that. It was good to see. He had all his pitches working really well.Ž Archer was named the Rays Opening Day starter last week … the fourth time hes received that honor.CUT DAYThe Rays made nine more cuts prior to Sundays game. Most notably, lefthander Anthony Banda and right-hander Ryne Stanek were optioned down to the minors. Banda, the teams No. 16 prospect, will likely be one of the first players called up to the majors as the Rays explore their plan to use multiple long relievers this season. We want to get him stretched out. He will start (at Triple-A Durham),Ž Cash said of Banda. The way we felt about him has probably gotten better since weve been able to see him throw a few innings for us. Somebody had to go. We only have 25 spots, and I think its going to be good for him.Ž The other seven players were reassigned to minor league camp. Pitchers Kyle Bird, Ian Gibaut, Cody Hall, Adam Kolarek and Colton Murray were all on the list, as well as catchers Xorge Carrillo and Johnny Monell. Tampa Bays roster now stands at 36 players, but that includes pitcher Jose De Leon, who recently had seasonending Tommy John surgery.INJURY UPDATESBrad Miller played in his first game since Feb. 23 on Saturday, and hit a pair of doubles in his return. Miller came back to camp on Sunday feeling great. He anticipates he will be ready to be full speed by Opening Day. I heard all good things, so he will play (today),Ž Cash said yesterday. Mallex Smith is also still dealing with his hamstring tweak. He participated in drills yesterday, and hes expected to appear in a minor league game today or tomorrow. At this point, I just want to make sure when I get back out there Im rolling and not favoring anything,Ž Smith said. While we have the time now, we just want to make sure thats the case.Ž Due to speed being such a big part of Smiths game, the hamstring issue could be problematic for him being ready to play on Opening Day. RAYS 10, TIGERS 5HITTER OF THE GAME Denard Span, Rays: The veteran raised his spring average to .361 with a 3-for-4 performance on Sunday. He also had an RBI and scored a run. PITCHER OF THE GAME Chris Archer, Rays: Archers scoreless 5 ‡ innings earned him his “ rst victory of the spring. He allowed just two hits while also striking out four batters. KEY INNING Bottom First: The Rays wasted no time getting on the scoreboard on Sunday. Denard Span reached base to lead things off, which Kevin Kiermaier followed with an RBI double. Kiermaier wasnt on base too long, as next batter Carlos Gomez hit a two-run home run (his “ rst with the Rays) to go up 3-0 in the “ rst. PROSPECT WATCH Yonny Chirinos, Rays: The Rays No. 21 prospect had a rough day on the mound Sunday. In 1 1 ‡ innings of work, Chirinos allowed “ ve runs (one earned) on four hits.
