About two days before Michelle Keasers death, her father, Jim Ockerman, drove to where she was staying at the Inn & Suites in Englewood. He went there out of desperation, to remind her how determined shed once been to change things for good. I got out a bunch of letters she wrote to me when she was incarcerated, how she was going to turn her life around and how she was so sorry for the direction her life took and the drug situation and everything like that,Ž he said. Her goal was to get her life back on track, with her kids and all that. I gave her those letters, and I gave her a hug.Ž There wasnt much conversation beyond that. Keaser was on her way to the laundry room, and Ockerman got back in his car and left, hoping the letters would sink in. It was the last time he saw her alive. When Keaser wasnt on drugs, she was caring, bubbly, and fun. She loved riding her Harley and going to the beach. Her daughter remembers warm afternoons spent on the sandbar. Her father remembers how she always told him he was her hero. If she was alive today, shed have a brand new granddaughter, born in February. But on March 29, 2012, Keaser was found dead in her hotel room, lying on the ”oor by the sink, with used syringes, glass smoking pipes, and a bottle of crack above her on By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER Six years later, family grapples with mothers overdose deathBOTTOM LINEThis is just one familys story of a life cut too short by drug addiction.

According to The New York Times, drug deaths are rising faster than ever, with more than 59,000 overdose deaths in 2016. The situation has been dire for a few years, with six in 10 drug overdose deaths in 2014 involving an opioid, such as a painkiller or heroin. In May, Donald Trump appointed a commission on the opioid epidemic, which hes described as a tremendous problem.Ž However, his proposed budget includes cuts to agencies like the Of“ce of National Drug Control Policy and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. At The Conversation, scholars Drug problem is getting worseOVERDOSE | 4DRUG PROBLEM | 4The Charlotte County Commission will consider Tuesday taking its “rst big step to transform a key portion of the countys oldest platted waterfront subdivision into a swanky, high-rise destination resort. The step may appear to be only the next increment in an aggressive drive to get the Sunseeker resort, “rst proposed last August, under construction by June. It calls for the commission to vacate a 22-acre portion of the Charlotte Harbor communitys plat. But the step also represents the point in which the commission would shift from a nonbinding position as a party to a letter of interest,Ž into a more-dif“cult-torevoke developers agreementŽ in which at least some of the developers rights would become vested. At a public hearing set for Charlotte to vote on Sunseeker pactBy GREG MARTINSUN CORRESPONDENTVACATE | 5County would vacate 22 acresIn recent months, the Charlotte County Commission has taken several actions, some with scant discussion and abbreviated public notice, that could clear the way not only for the Sunseeker resort project, but also for redevelopment throughout Charlotte Harbor. Feb. 27, for example, the commission held a public hearing to approve the letter of interest in the partnership with Sunseeker even though the public notice for the hearing fell short of the one-week goal set forth in the county charter. In that case, in which the county agreed to consider swapping the park site to Sunseeker, the letter of interest triggered a 30-day period in which the county was legally required to consider any alternative offers to buy the four-acre Melbourne site before it could be swapped County accommodating SunseekerBy GREG MARTINSUN CORRESPONDENT SUNSEEKER | 5I will not teach in any Florida school where school personnel have guns. Our elementary school still does not have a buzz-in system. Punishing law-abiding gun owners for the acts of criminals is ”at-out wrong. These are just three of the nearly 1,200 submissions Gov. Rick Scott received via a public inputŽ page his of“ce set up shortly after the Parkland school shooting. Floridians across the state used the portal to vent their frustrations and lay bare their fears after a mass shooting that rattled the state and nation. Emotions run high in the responses. And they expose the political divisions over an issue as caustic as gun control. But they also strip back the political rhetoric and reveal a state that was universally fearful and angry after 17 people were murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as they passed out valentines on Feb. 14. Some respondents feared for their gun rights. Nearly everyone feared for their kids. Will the puppet dance continue?Ž asked one. What will you do?Ž The input page, which redirects to an online form, was opened six days after the shooting. It was posted on Scotts of“ce home page but wasnt largely promoted on social media. Yet nearly 1,200 respondents still used it to from late February to early March, reacting day-by-day as Scott rolled out his half-a-billion dollar plan to strengthen school security, hire more campus mental health professionals and raise the gun purchasing age from 18 to 21.

MAHONEYTIMES/HERALD BUREAUPARKLAND | 5SARASOTA COUNTY „ First responders can now get a little help from their friends. The newest app from Sarasota County, called PulsePoint,Ž lets residents help with hands-only CPR if a person in public goes into cardiac arrest. Its a way to help keep the person alive while of“cials make their way to the scene. The science of cardiac arrest and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation started with Red Cross,Ž Sarasota County Fire EMS Chief Carson Sanders said. With research, its basically proving just doing chest compressions can sustain someones life prior to us getting there.Ž Any interested person can download the app. They watch a tutorial on the app and can also take a 20-30 minute class offered throughout the county if they wish. The app will alert the person when someone near them has gone into cardiac arrest, then that person can choose to respond. Sanders stated, within each minute of cardiac arrest, a patients chance of life goes down 10 percent. Five to six minutes, which is what it takes (for EMS to arrive at the scene typically), youre already at a 40 to 50 percent chance of survival without CPR,Ž he said. Its a huge thing and even from our side from EMS providers, the push is on to get basic CPR done as fast as possible and long as possible.Ž App users will also be noti“ed if a public access automated external de“brillator, or AED, is nearby. Even if you dont know how to use an AED „ theyre easy to follow instructions „ but if you grab one on the way, someone else may know how,Ž Sanders said. So its the community working together.Ž Sarasota County School Sarasota County launches life-saving appBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERAPP | 5CALL US AT941-206-1000CHARLOTTE SUN Pulitzer Prize winner2 0 1 6 AN EDITION OF THE SUNVOL. 126 | NO. 85AMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILY Mostly sunny and warmHigh 87 Low 65$1.50 www.yoursun.comTodays weather:www.yoursun.comFIND US ONLINE CHARLIE SAYS ...Sign me up for that app! 705252000258Daily Edition $1.50 Monday, March 26, 2018 SEN.

Postmaster: Please send address changes to the SUN, 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor, Florida 33980-2100.LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSPUNTA GORDA „ Punta Gorda City Council is considering regulating the citys public day docks, which has some live-aboard residents concerned. Nothing was approved by the council at last weeks meeting, but the ordinance under consideration states that no one can dock at Laishley or Gilchrist between the hours of 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. The issue stems (from the fact) that these are day docks,Ž said City Manager Howard Kunik. They are there for a purpose, ... these are day docks. Well bring it up again at the (next) council meeting and see if the ordinance goes forward.Ž The new ordinance would also put into place an enforcement structure of fines „ first offense at $100, second offense at $200, and third offense at $300. The proposed ordinance came out of previous council discussion regarding the day docks at Gilchrist Landing and Laishley Park. The conflict concerns not only storage of boating equipment at the docks but also non-motorized and motorized vessels use of the dock. I think boaters didnt understand (the potential ordinance at first),Ž said Punta Gorda live-aboard resident Joe Ferris. Once we heard about it, we all understood and adjusted.Ž Ferris, who owns a 34-foot catamaran, requested the city to put a pause on the ordinance so liveaboard residents could make adjustments. If we want to be a community that has a destination for cruisers and other boaters around the area,Ž said Ferris, there has to be a safe way to get to shore and back to their boats, so as far as this ordinance goes, I think that the issues (the ordinance) was addressing at the time had real concerns and I think a lot of them have been addressed.Ž Email: dsutphin@sun-herald.comPublic day dock ordinances under consideration by Punta Gorda CouncilBy DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITER FACEBOOK PHOTOThe Englewood Fire Department responded to the Fishery for a re at the Placida Fishing Pier Saturday night.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 26, 2018 FROM PAGE ONE the counter. Her body was cold when law enforcement arrived. Keasers toxicology report showed methamphetamine, amphetamine, cocaine, benzoylecgonine, and hydroxyzine in her system. It was ruled an overdose, caused by poly drug abuse. Her death left a hole in the family, with everyone wondering just what happened and how things could have been different. Her daughter, Katie Keaser, heard a rumor that her mothers wasnt just a normal overdose but a poisoning by a vindictive drug dealer. She said Keaser was selling drugs for a man who is now in prison after a drug raid at his house in Englewood last year. When Keaser went behind his back, he wanted revenge. (He) was the ringleader, and she kind of went above his head and went around him and used his money to go to his guy and make money,Ž Katie said. Thats a big no-no, and he found out.Ž She heard from multiple sources that the dealer began systematically poisoning the drugs he gave to her mother. The same story was told by Mark Kapuscinski, a friend of Michelles and an alleged con“dential informant for the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce in 2012. Writing from prison, Kapuscinski claims he witnessed the dealer make a batch of the toxic cocaine. (He) had taken some water out of a pool that was infested with algae and other parasites,Ž he wrote. As the cocaine cooled and started to harden, (he) took a fork, dipped the tips of the fork into some sour milk that had went bad. Then place the tip of the fork in some baking soda. Afterward (he) started raking the fork through the cooling cocaine, over and over, until the cocaine hardened.Ž Her father recalled seeing gray, discolored marks like spiderwebs on Keasers ankles, which he thought was just from shooting up drugs at the time. Katie thinks it was an infection, like MRSA, that killed her mother. Later on, Kapuscinski said a photo of Keaser was used to threaten him, which Katie has also heard from others around town. (The dealer) was sending the picture of her around to other people and saying, This is whats going to happen to you,Ž she said. Whether it was an infection he gave her, or he gave her a bad dose of drugs, I know it was foul play.Ž According to the investigation by the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce, Keaser was found by the hotels housekeeper and John Twombly, a friend of Michelles who worked for Evan Thomassen, according to Kapuscinski. Keaser had been living at the hotel for months and typically paid daily in cash, but when her body was found, no one had seen her in a day and a half. Her car was at the hotel, but there was no answer when the housekeeper knocked on the door with Twombly, who said he was worried about her. They could only open the door a few inches due to the chain lock, so Twombly kicked it in, and they found her deceased. Detectives found no evidence of foul play, but Katie isnt convinced the agency fully investigated the case. She said some of her moms belongings were missing, including her laptop which Katie got back from a cracked-out ladyŽ in a parking lot. Everything on it was wiped. Its almost like they said, Oh, its another drug addict off the street, and they dont have to get into it,Ž she said. Theyre only worried about bringing the drug dealer down and getting the next guy, and theyre not worried about getting justice for the families that are losing these people.Ž For Bill Housley, Keasers death wasnt exactly a surprise, but he felt like he had a hole in him when he got the call. Years ago, he was going to marry Keaser. Everything was ready for their wedding when she found out she was pregnant with their son Joel. Michelle was a very petite, beautiful woman,Ž Housley said. She wasnt going to have her day of marriage be ruined because she was six-anda-half-to-seven months pregnant.Ž They postponed the wedding, but after Joel was born, Keaser fell back into drug addiction. Housley knew shed used drugs in high school, but shed been clean for years. A psychiatrist at the time thought her return to drug use may have been connected to postpartum depression. The wedding never happened, but the two stayed friends, and Keaser even lived with Housley a few months before her death, after he rescued her from a crack house, he said. Keaser called him on the phone, crying, saying she was in trouble and afraid for her life. When he showed up, two men shoved guns in his face. He told them to put them away and went inside, where everyone was high. Housley took Keaser home, and she stayed about a month, until the day he found her smoking crack in the house. Joels outside, knocking on the door,Ž Housley said. Shes screaming at him to leave her the f„ alone. I said, I cant live like this. You are not going to talk to our son like that. Im leaving now; please be gone when I come back.Ž About two months later, she was dead. Like Katie, Housley heard talk around town but nothing he can verify. The story he heard was that she overdosed on purpose after selling to an undercover cop, knowing shed go to prison again, and this time, it could be for life. Everybody tried so hard to keep her involved and keep her straight,Ž he said. Drugs are just a bad, bad thing.Ž Ockerman said he still blames himself for not being more understanding. When Keaser lived with him as an adult, hed still tell her to be home by 11 p.m. The last time she didnt come home, he threw her belongings in a trash bag outside and locked the door. If I wanted to quit something, I always could do it, and I couldnt understand her not being able to get away from that drug scene,Ž he said. Now that Ive researched it and know more about it, I can understand why it was so hard to break away from that situation. I blame myself for not hanging in there and being more understanding. She had a big depression problem too, and I think that might have had a bearing in it. But I was at my wits end.Ž Ockerman said Keaser was just 15 the “rst time he found her in a drug situation. She dropped out of school at 17, and shed go missing for days at a time. He remembers going up to the lifeguard towers at the beach late at night, hoping to “nd her on the beach and bring her home. Hed stay up all night searching. When she was older, the family tried to get her into rehab in Michigan, where more of her family still lives. The arrangements were all settled, but they couldnt get her to go. Katie, who spent time in the same drug scene, said shed like to see more support for addicts in Englewood. When she was getting clean, she had to drive 45 minutes every day to go to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in Port Charlotte or Venice, because there were none in Englewood. A drug addict just out of detox isnt going to want to drive 45 minutes every day,Ž she said. We need more meetings, more education, and a detox center.Ž But for Ockerman, hes not sure anything would have helped except getting out of Englewood, away from the people who kept dragging his daughter down. Her only way out of that was to get out of this town, away from these people,Ž he said. It wasnt going to happen as long as she was here. She was so addicted to drugs that she had to have them, had to have them, had to have them.ŽEmail: aeasker@sun-herald.com Michelle Keaser with her son Joel Housley PHOTOS ON FRONT PAGEMichelle Keaser with daughter Katie Keaser Michelle and daughter Katie Keaser Michelle Keaser on her motorcycle.

Here are six articles that explain the background of the epidemic and where were might go from here.HOW DID WE GET HERE?Ted Cicero and Matthew Ellis, who study opioid abuse at Washington University in St. Louis, argue that the epidemic is rooted in two events: the introduction in 1996 of OxyContin, an extended-release high-dose opioid, and a 2001 report on pain treatment from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. As Cicero and Ellis write: The change in pain treatment ushered in by the Joint Commission report lead to an increase in the number of opioid prescriptions in the U.S., and the increase in prescriptions for this particular high dose opioid helped to introduce an unprecedented amount of prescription drugs into the marketplace, generating a whole new population of opioid users.Ž Jeannie D. DiClementi, a professor of psychology, points out that the increase in opioid prescriptions led to an increase in heroin use: Nearly 80 percent of heroin users report having become addicted to prescription pain medications “rst, while just 3.6 percent had a history of heroin use before beginning prescription pain medications.Ž Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 100 times more powerful than heroin, was “rst introduced in the 1960s as a painkiller during major surgery. Illictly made fentanyl is now found on the street, often in counterfeit drugs. So are novel synthetic opioids that are chemically unrelated to anything used in medicine but act on the same receptors in the body and brain. These drugs are generally manufactured in clandestine labs in China and Mexico. However, adding these illicitly made versions of fentanyl and other new opioids to Schedule I „ the category of the Controlled Substances Act for illegal drugs like heroin „ can be a lengthy process. And as Samuel Banister, Roy Gerona and Axel Adams, who study these new synthetic substances, explain: The trouble is that as individual illicit synthetic opioids are added to Schedule I, clandestine chemists in China and Mexico tweak molecular structures to circumvent the law by creating new drugs with similar effects.ŽTREATING ADDICTIONLast year, the federal government passed legislation aimed at expanding access to addiction treatment and took steps to improve treatment options for people in the criminal justice system. William Greene and Lisa J. Merlo from the University of Florida wrote that: This stepped-up policy response is giving doctors the means to better treat people with opioid addiction. When combined with improvements in public understanding that addiction is a disease requiring treatment, we as a society are creating an environment that supports treatment. We believe this will save many thousands of lives.ŽWE STILL NEED OPIOIDSPain, explains Robert Caudle at the University of Florida, is complex and multifaceted, something that we can experience in many dimensions. Opioids can suppress incoming pain signals, prevent those signals from being ampli“ed and improve the emotional states of the patient, all critical things for people with chronic pain. In many ways, opioids are the most effective treatment we have currently, but Caudle notes out that we arent investing much in “nding better ones: In 2015 the National Institutes of Health spent $854 million on pain research, compared to more than $6 billion for cancer. It is no wonder that pain patients muddle through with what amounts to centuries-old therapies.Ž While the opioid epidemic wears on in the U.S., parts of South America, Africa and Asia face a very different opioid crisis: too few of them. People in those parts of the world often cannot access pain medication stronger than acetaminophen. Luke Messac argues that policies from the International Narcotics Control Board aimed at preventing opioids from being diverted for illict use have wound up keeping these medicines out of the hands of people who truly need them. Pain is universal,Ž writes Messac, but its relief is still a function of geography.ŽThis is an updated version of a story that originally ran on October 6, 2016.

The Sun /Monday, March 26, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 There were no deaths reported Sunday. OBITUARIES Memorials in the Sun Honor your passed loved ones anytime with a personalized memorial tribute. Call (941) 206-1028 for rates. 10 a.m. Tuesday in commission chambers, the commission will consider approving that developers agreement along with the plat vacation, which calls for the county to vacate a 22.07-acre portion of the Charlotte Harbor plat. The pact calls for the developer to improve Main Street in exchange for the vacation of the plat, which dates back to 1886, when the communitys waterfront street layout was “rst approved by Manatee County. Charlotte County didnt come into existence until 1921. The goal would be to assemble a couple dozen sparsely developed commercial and residential lots into a single project site straddling U.S. 41 near the bridge over the Peace River. Thats where Sunseeker plans to build up to 840 condominiums, a 275-bed hotel, a 1,000-foot-long swimming pool, 15 bars and restaurants, two marinas, a 12-foot-wide public river walk and a 375-space parking garage in Bayshore Park. Tuesdays proposal also calls for Sunseeker to be vested with the right to build an 8-foot-tall wall around its project, like a subdivision wall,Ž according to Rob Berntsson, attorney for Sunseeker. The wall, which only recently surfaced in the plan, would run from the bridge along northbound U.S. 41 to Main Street, then west to Bayshore Park. The vacation would transfer the ownership of portions of Bayshore Road and Central Avenue, and all of Pinion, Shear and Myrtle streets to the developer. The street rights of way total 4.5 acres. In exchange, the agreement calls for Sunseeker to improve Main Street, which borders the project site, by widening it from 12-feet-wide to 20 feet and building an 8-foot-wide sidewalk to be located 6 inches from Sunseekers property line, according to an engineering drawing submitted by Sunseeker. A month ago, commissioners had been told they could expect a developers agreement in 30 days that would encompass the full scope of Sunseekers entire plan, including a proposal to sellŽ a four-acre public park site at Melbourne Avenue and U.S. 41 to Sunseeker in exchange for Sunseeker building a seawall, pedestrian bridge, riverwalk and parking garage. But only the plat vacation and the Main Street components are included in Tuesdays proposed agreement. Only those aspects are included because the Sunseeker team has yet to “nish drafting the full site plan, said Berntsson. His team will be working with county staffers in a plan review process to “nalize it. The team will come back before the commission a couple of times in the next three months to amend the agreement to include those components. Those amendments wont require public hearings, he said. Sunseekers goal is to begin construction in June and complete the “rst building some 18 months later, according to Sunseekers website. Construction along the shore will take longer because Sunseeker will need to get permits from state, federal and county agencies. The site, which is in a high-hazard coastal zone, is also adjacent to the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve and the countys manatee protection area. And the countys SmartCharlotte 2050 comprehensive plan contains numerous regulations for such low-lying coastal construction projects to protect aquatic wildlife and natural resources. Several county staffers reviewed the plat vacation and none objected. It would not create any access issues for any of the surrounding properties,Ž wrote Ken Quillen, county planner III. However, environmental specialist Susie Perheimer warned the project will have to comply with at least a half-dozen conditions before construction and site clearing can commence, including conducting a protected wildlife assessment and mitigation plan, landscape buffers and tree protection. This (process) is no different than any other owner or property would go through,Ž Berntsson said. County spokesman Brian Gleason said Sunseekers drive to get the project underway is aggressive.Ž We are going to accommodate (John Redmond, Sunseeker president), but it still has to be done right,Ž Gleason said. Meanwhile, Sunseeker is wasting no time in marketing its project. On its website, which includes an animated tour of the future resort, prospective condominium owners can click a block that says, become an owner.Ž By “lling out an application and paying $5,000 deposits, buyers can reserve units. Sunseeker will keep taking deposits until it reaches 2,700 prospective buyers, according to its website.VACATEFROM PAGE 1to Sunseeker. Commissioner Joe Tiseo complained during that hearing that he was noti“ed on a Friday via a phone call from the county development director that the item would be on the following Tuesdays agenda. That didnt give him or the public time to vet the proposal, he said. For me, noti“cation and Sunshine (Law) and transparency are always the number one rule,Ž Tiseo said. Commissioner Chris Constance, however, retorted, This is a very, very, very, I hope I said enough veries (sic), important project to the economic development of the county and I dont want to do anything to slow it down or put up any road blocks. I dont think this is the time to be a nitpicker on some rules on a project that is so important to Charlotte County.Ž The commissions other previous actions have erased key portions of the Charlotte Harbor Community development code, which had been adopted when the Charlotte Harbor Community Redevelopment Agency was established in 1996. The codes had been intended to both encourage tourism and commercial development at the southeast end of Bayshore Road and maintain the historical character and tree canopy of the adjacent residential neighborhood. But county staff determined the codes either con”icted with newer codes, or hampered development in the area. For example, Dec. 12, the commission exempted the Charlotte Harbor Community from a code that had set special maximum building heights and minimum setbacks. That code had been designed to give developers an incentive to provide more public space in exchange for taller building heights. Under the code, they could build up to 90 feet high if they set back their buildings up to 55 feet from the shoreline. If they wanted to build closer, they could tier down the height of their buildings. Now that the code has been repealed, Sunseeker can build 90-foot-tall buildings with a zero setback from a 12-footwide minimum riverwalk easement. The commission in recent months also repealed a code that had forbidden developers from “lling in lots in the Charlotte Harbor Community. That code had essentially required new buildings to be constructed on pilings to meet ”ood-zone elevations. Sunseeker, however, plans to construct its buildings with no “ll, said Rob Berntsson, attorney for Sunseeker. Ground levels are slated for parking, he said.SUNSEEKERFROM PAGE 1 „ sparking outrage from many teachers in their online submissions. Amanda Hathaway, 39, from Wesley Chapel, said in her response that she read SB 7026 in its entiretyŽ and wanted to thank the governor for a plan that she felt was very thorough.Ž Hathaway, who is not registered with any party but mostly votes for Republicans, told the Tampa Bay Times on Friday that she wanted to be one of the few positive voices amid what she assumed would be a wave of critical comments. Shes president of the PTA at Watergrass Elementary School and is a stay-at-home mom for her three kids. I felt like I needed to say something,Ž Hathaway said. I noticed people who were reading a tiny portion and all the negative posts ƒ just knowing schools have the capacity to protect themselves is huge.Ž Meanwhile, Bryan Berger, 50, who works in software sales, said in his response that he was highly distraughtŽ by the idea of arming school personnel. He lives in Palm Harbor and his wife is a teacher in Pinellas County, he told the Times, and wanted his opinion to be known. I have a couple of handguns myself and I get it,Ž Berger said. Its fun to go shooting. But I feel strongly that sensible gun laws are important.Ž A registered Democrat but self-described libertarian, Berger said he would support a ban on assault ri”es and that SB 7026 was too soft on guns. The respondents who spoke to the Times said they did not get a reply from Scotts of“ce. But they also didnt expect one. They only wanted to be heard. Governors spokeswoman Lauren Schenone said Scott appreciates hearing from FloridiansŽ and the responses were reviewed by staff while developing the Governors action plan.Ž The input page, though of course not a representative survey, slowly began to resemble a digital consciousness of Florida. Some submissions came close to novels while others shared just a few words. A submission was made from nearly all 67 counties. Common themes included asking for better school security, putting more mental health professionals on school campuses and calling for the “ring of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. Many asked Scott why he did not attend the televised CNN Town HallŽ event where several of Floridas elected of“cials took questions from Parkland parents and students about gun control. One Pinellas man suggested that drones could be used to protect schools. A woman lamented that her middle-schooler had been bullied since 5th grade and is often sullen and depressed.Ž For some, the page became simply a forum to put their shock into words. I dont even know what to suggest here,Ž wrote one Hillsborough County woman. I just know that I dont feel con“dent my kids will be safe from harm.Ž The responses also reveal that Floridians are less divided along party or county lines than some have depicted: A fair amount of self-identi“ed Republicans pressed Scott for moderate gun reforms. Miami-Dade respondents, a county with a strong reputation for supporting strong gun control measures, joined residents from other counties in calling for moderate gun restrictions. Several warned that if school staff must be armed, then they should be better trained than a Navy SEAL. Some residents of rural counties were “ercely protective of the Second Amendment, but most still asked for measures such as school shooter drills, metal detectors and even limits on magazine size. One thing respondents agreed on is that the governor should do something. I live a mile from Stoneman Douglas, and my grandson was thankfully not harmed during the Valentines Day/Ash Wednesday PREVENTABLE tragedy,Ž wrote one woman. Please put aside partisan thinking and do what is best for the welfare of your constituents.Ž I havent felt that way since I heard the “rst planes ”y over Jacksonville after the 9/11 incident,Ž said one Clay County chorus teacher, describing the “rst time the “re alarm went off in her classroom after the Feb. 14 shooting. In the Parkland attack, the shooter reportedly pulled the “re alarm to disperse students. I want to be part of the effort to protect our children and I will not stand idly by,Ž wrote a Sarasota mom. Our Florida legislators have failed us. Its time for change.ŽPARKLANDFROM PAGE 1Districts are already getting involved. Of“cers visited each of the high schools so roughly 2,000 seniors are trained and able to use the app. If users are concerned they could do more harm than good when it comes to administrating the CPR, Sanders assures people it is dif“cult to make a lethal mistake. The thing is, if you were to call 911 and had no idea how to do CPR and said someones not breathing (operators) would tell you to turn your speaker phone on and walk you through an assisted version of CPR,Ž he said. There is a possibility of breaking a rib, however, you have to remember where youre starting from, which is they dont have a pulse. If they end up breathing and having a pulse theyre a lot better off.Ž While statistics on the number of app downloads and people saved with help from the app will not be released until later, Sanders believes it is a great opportunity to help save lives. Weve embraced new technology and this is another avenue to get there quicker,Ž he said. The little bit they can do with their hands or a public access AED can go a long way to help us do our jobs better.ŽEmail: lcoey@sun-herald.com APPFROM PAGE 1In a 1783 letter to Joshua Holmes, President George Washington wrote, The bosom of America is open to receive not only the opulent and respected stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all nations and religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment.Ž Despite Washingtons invitation 235 years ago, few issues are more divisive today than immigration. The debate pits the president and the federal courts, federal and state governments, legislators at all levels, friends, neighbors and even spouses against one another. In his class U.S. Immigration Policy in an Unsettled World,Ž retired educator Joseph Lanza explores one of the most polarizing policies facing the United States today. The two-session short course is 10 a.m.12:30 p.m. March 29 and April 5 at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court Suite 211 in Punta Gorda. The course examines the history of immigration to the United States, participants points of view regarding immigration policy, and four distinct policy options the country could follow moving forward, according to Lanza. Lanza retired after 38 years teaching U.S. history and economics. In retirement, he enjoys exploring historical mysteries and dilemmas as well as economic issues and topics. I will talk about the history of immigration to this country and extract some common themes that relate to today,Ž Lanza said. Historically, immigration to the United States began during the colonial era and occurred in a series of periodic waves for a variety of reasons, often stirring backlash. Common themes among critics throughout history include national security concerns, immigrants takingŽ jobs from Americans and working for lower wages, as well as whether immigrants will assimilate and adopt the American way of life, according to Lanza. Beyond a purely historical view, Well try to incorporate personal views because everyone has a familial story that shapes their personal views regarding immigration,Ž Lanza said. There is a lot of commonality in those stories, like seeking more economic opportunity or a better life for their families.Ž Well also look at four different immigration policies and consider each policys strengths and weaknesses, although no one necessarily has to agree with any single policy,Ž Lanza said. Typically, the class cant reach consensus on any of those policies. Then well see whether the participants can blend those policies to see if we can reach a consensus.Ž The policies participants will discuss include: an open-door policy with no restrictions on immigration; national security restrictions that require vetting before entry or target certain countries or parts or the world for exclusion; restrictions that target highly skilled workers for entry but limit the entry of lowskilled workers; and making immigration unnecessary by the U.S. leading efforts to eliminate the conditions that create a desire to migrate, Lanza said.

Page 12 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 26, 2018 LOCAL SPORTS LOCAL SPORTS PUNTA GORDA „ The Charlotte High School girls track team is coming along very nicely, as evidenced by its performance in this weeks Tarpon Invitational track meet. The Tarpons “guratively and literally lapped the “eld, with the Tarpons scoring 151.5 points, easily outdoing Riverview which was a distant second with 90. The most impressive performance of the night came from Isabella Coogan, who lapped the entire “eld in the 3200 meters to win by more than a minute and a half, which helped make up for her runner-up “nish in the 1,600 meters The Tarpons also won the 4x800 and the 4x100 meter relays, while Eunice Noel won the 100-meter and 300-meter hurdles, the later going one-two with Britney Augustin. Kaitlyn Chavarria and Annabelle Anderson Prater were one-two in the 200 meters, while Emily Vaughn took runner-up in the triple jump. Lemon Bay and North Port were in a three-way tie for third with Bishop Verot with 57 points. But both teams showed a little something. Lemon Bay showed they are no longer just a long-distance running program, even though Maddison Welch won the 1600. Chloe Mitchell won the 800 meters and the 4x400 and 4x800 meter relays “nished second. Sarah Cote was second in the high jump and Jenny Parsons was third in the triple jump. Welch, who didnt run in the favorite event, the 3200, said this is a more well-rounded team than in the past. The team as a whole has been progressing. Im the last of the big group of distance runners. Our sprinting and middle distances have been coming along really well,Ž Welch said. Were more balanced now.Ž North Port may have done much better had their star, Alexis Francavilla, not injured herself, forcing Emani Jefferson to take up the slack, which she did nicely. We had a lot of girls out because of injury and spring break. Emani Jefferson placed in all our events, but she didnt race in the 200 because of a basketball game tomorrow,Ž North Port coach Phu Nguyen said. All the girls who competed did well.Ž Jefferson won the long jump, was second in the high jump and third in the 100 meters. Alexis Smith was second in the 3200. The area boys teams had their moments, but Riverview took the team title with 126 points, followed by Lehigh with 91 and Charlotte with 90. The Tarpons get on the podium much in the “eld events but got victories from Savorion Warren in the 200 and a second in the 100, while Michael Balseca won the 1600 and third in the 800. Charlotte took second in the 4x100 relay. Were right on. Once again we wanted to get the times down and the distances out,Ž said Charlotte coach Jerry Voss. Isabella did a nice job tonight and everyone is coming down. Thats what were looking at.Ž Lemon Bay and North Port again tied, this time for eighth, with 36 points. Daniel Gonzalez won the discus and was third in the shot put. For the Bobcats, who were third in the 4x800. Lemon Bays Dillan Brady was second in the high jump and Thomas Cheney was third in the 110-meter hurdles.TARPON INVITATIONAL At Charlotte High SchoolBOYSTeams Top 10: RIVERVIEW 126, LEHIGH 91, CHARLOTTE 90, BOOKER 59, VENICE 59, CLEWISTON 51.5, IDA BAKER 43, LEMON BAY 36, NORTH PORT 36, SOUTH FORT MYERS 22.5 Individuals: Shot put: 1.

Page 14 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 26, 2018 STATE NEWSTALLAHASSEE „ A powerful panel of Floridians that meets every 20 years is about to decide whether a ban on oil drilling, term limits for school board members and nearly two dozen other ideas should be included in the states constitution. After meeting for the past year, the Florida Constitution Revision Commission has trimmed down a long list of proposals to 25 separate items that the panel will consider between now and early May. If the commission ultimately says yes to any of them, they will go to voters this coming November. Sixty percent of voters must vote yes before any of the amendments become law. The route to this point has been anything but smooth for the unique commission. The 37-member panel „ whose members were appointed by Gov. Rick Scott, legislative leaders, and the chief justice of the Supreme Court „ has waded into contentious arguments over guns, abortion, education and whether to end the practice of greyhound racing at tracks around the state. Along the way, commissioners have considered proposals that were aimed at undoing court rulings that have upset Republicans or revisited past battles on gambling or health care regulation that got bogged down in the Florida Legislature. This has frustrated some members who said they should not rewrite the constitution just because legislators have been unable to pass a law. This is wrong for the Legislature to sit back and dump it on us to solve the problem,Ž said Hank Coxe, a Jacksonville attorney and commissioner, during a debate on whether to outlaw greyhound racing. Tim Cerio, an attorney who once worked as Scotts general counsel, defended the approach that the commission has taken so far. Commissioners have the freedom to bring it up,Ž Cerio said. We have to be guided by our own principles on what belongs in the constitution and what doesnt.Ž One item that apparently doesnt belong in the constitution is additional gun control restrictions. Commissioners had not been considering any before the February shooting deaths of 17 people at a Florida high school. When some commissioners tried to consider restrictions including a ban on some types of semi-automatic ri”es „ they were rejected on procedural grounds. A majority on the panel argued that it would be wrong to waive the commissions internal rules in order to consider them now. Among those items that are still under consideration: € A prohibition on oil and gas drilling in state coastal waters. € Including electronic cigarettes and vaping in Floridas current indoor smoking ban. € Requiring that employers use a veri“cation system that checks the immigration status of people seeking jobs. Theres no guarantee that a proposal will make the ballot since the commission rules require 22 out of 37 members to vote yes for an item to be placed directly on the ballot. One overriding concern for commissioners is how many items they should place on what will likely be a lengthy ballot. Voters will be deciding on a new governor, a U.S. Senate contest likely to feature Gov. Rick Scott against incumbent Bill Nelson, as well as down-ballot races for attorney general. Five amendments that have already made the ballot including one that would make it harder for the Legislature to raise taxes and another one that would automatically restore voting rights to most former prisoners.Florida panel may ask voters to make big changesBy GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 6, 2017, le photo, Florida Constitution Revision Commissioner Brecht Heuchan, right, raises a question about how commissioners are appointed during their meeting at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Wood storks having good year, but for how long?NAPLES (AP) „ Its been a good year for wood storks in the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, after a long string of bad years. More than 400 nests have been built, and chicks have started to try their wings. But biologists are worried that years like this may prove to be more of an aberration than a rule, that the sight of young storks and nests in their age-old breeding ground of Corkscrew and the western Everglades will become increasingly rare or non-existent. The Naples Daily News reports that in the past 10 years, wood storks have nested only three times. In 2009, monitors counted more than 1,000 nests. They counted fewer than 500 in 2014.Drones delivering contraband to prisons a budding problemPENSACOLA (AP) „ A package of contraband covered in grass clippings that was dropped by a drone at a Panhandle prison is one of the most recent examples of inmates using advanced technology to smuggle illegal items behind prison walls. The News-Journal reports that authorities are investigating two con“rmed drone drops at Florida prisons in the last 30 days. One of those drops was discovered at a Panhandle prison after correctional of“cers spotted the drone, which was delivering a cellphone and tobacco. The Florida Department of Corrections declined to specify at which institution the drop happened and would only con“rm it happened at a prison in the Northwest region of the state. Of“cials say drones plague prisons across the nation, and most corrections departments are trying to keep up with new technology.Gov. Scott sets timeline for school security upgradesTALLAHASSEE (AP) „ Florida Gov. Rick Scott has sent a letter the states school superintendents and school board members, detailing his expectations for school security upgrades. The letter, sent Friday, includes a timeline for state and local of“cials to make changes. The upgrades come in the wake of the fatal shooting of 17 students and staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Scott wrote that by May 1, the Florida Department of Education will hire a director for its newly created Of“ce of Safe Schools. By July 1, superintendents must designate a district school safety specialist. By September 1, each district must establish a threat assessment team that will meet monthly to discuss any potential threats to the teachers, students or school.

Pam Davis “gures it will take a year. It is just shy of three months since she took over as Punta Gordas police chief. A big part of her job is to rebuild a department damaged by lax oversight that led to the shooting death of a civilian by one of its of“cers. She has de“nite ideas of how she will go about reshaping it into her image. I want to bring in new training, new policies,Ž she said during an interview at department headquarters. I want to put my name, my spin, on things. I feel like thats going to take me a good year. I want to put my mark on things, yes.Ž The Maryland native has some de“nite ideas of what she wants to see happen as time puts some distance between the Punta Gorda Police Department and the 2016 shooting death of retired librarian Mary Knowlton. Davis is con“dent, approachable, articulate. She brings to the table a clear-eyed vision. She sees that she must distance the department from its past. Davis wants to see more of“cers on foot. She wants to see them on bicycles. She wants to see them interacting with the community instead of writing tickets for going 41 in a 30 and putting school kids in handcuffs because they got caught with a joint. The community loves it when you A new leader comes to Punta GordaBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY RUSTY PRAYI want to put my name, my spin, on things,Ž says Pam Davis, who was hired in January as Punta Gordas police chief. LeanneELYCOLUMNISTIf youre traveling or vacationing, as many people are this time of year, there are easy ways to stay on planŽ without feeling deprived. Nature has provided us with plenty of healthy graband-go options, though we seem programmed to think that suitable food for traveling involves a plastic wrapper. Here are some of my favorite snacks for traveling: € Boiled eggs € Beef jerky € Bananas € Apples € Oranges (dont forget to bring some wet wipes) € Nuts € Berries € Seeds € Carrot sticks € Water € Kombucha Any of these items can be easily toted along for car rides, and most of them are readily available at gas stations, convenience stores and airport shops. And, yes, I also travel with my little portable blender so that I can make my smoothies anywhere, even in the airport. Where theres a will, theres a way. If youre vacationing at a place where you cant bring your own food with you and you must eat at restaurants, youll “nd that most chefs are quite accommodating, if you are able to speak the language.

The driveway had a slope to it, and once the car was rolling, we could not stop it from going into the street nor could we push it back up the drive out of the street. Fortunately, the house was on a quiet street near a golf course, so we got help from some its employees and the car was placed safely back in the garage.

YOUNG When Bill Schroeder picked a Valentines gift a year ago for his wife Debi, he bought something that has given her a world of pleasure „ her very own kayak. It turns out that Debi wasnt the only one to bene“t from the kayak. Dozens of women have gained from the gift of that kayak because it led Debi to start a local kayak group for women. The “rst time I kayaked was in 2016 with a snowbird friend. I loved it so much I couldnt stop talking about how much fun it was,Ž she says. Thats when the guy she lovingly calls Hunk knew the perfect Valentines gift for his wife was a kayak. When my snowbird friend left the area, I kayaked by myself a bit but then I had the idea that a womens kayak group would be welcomed in our area,Ž she says. A registered nurse and former Mrs. Iowa, Debi has always been good at organizing and reaching goal. It didnt take long for her to set up the Facebook group she calls Kayaking Gals Relaxed Adventures in Englewood Fl. Its the word relaxedŽ that is most telling about the group. Its not a club where the main objective is to get somewhere as fast as you can. We are all about getting out on the water to enjoy nature. We never hesitate to stop to look for conch shells, admire wildlife or explore an island,Ž Debi says. Its that relaxed pace that allows the kayakers to see more wildlife and to capture stunning nature photos. We see things that some only get to see in National Geographic,Ž Debi says. In our yaks we can go where other boats cant and see beautiful aspects of nature up close and personal.Ž She quickly learned she was right when she thought a gals kayaking group would be welcomed. The group started with just a few members then grew like wild mushrooms in a “eld. There are now 108 members with more joining each week. The group is open to any women in Charlotte County.

The department no longer shows zero tolerance toward kids in school who are caught with drugs. Now, its up to the of“cer to decide the appropriate action. If that means sending a kid home to parents instead of off to jail, “ne. It doesnt mean turning your back on a situation. It means seeing it clearly. At some point the decision was made that every juvenile involved in drug possession „ even minor marijuana charges „ was going to be taken out of the school in handcuffs and charged criminally,Ž Davis said. She prefers diversion and education. I think zero tolerance of any kind when it comes to making arrests is a bad thing to do. It can take away trust in the community. I do not like language to be like, You will not do this. I dont want to write ourselves into corners with zero tolerance. I dont want to take away discretion from our of“cers when it comes to making decisions on whats best for the situation at that time.Ž And if that situation would involve an active shooter in a school, this building would just empty out. Wed all be there within seconds.Ž Davis, 47, was familiar with the area before she took the chiefs job in January. She and her husband, Scott, a retired police lieutenant, had been vacationing in Charlotte County for a couple of years. Their daughter, Sydney, 19, is a premed student at Florida Gulf Coast University. Davis grew up in the Annapolis, Maryland, area. When she was young, she wanted to become a veterinarian. But then she saw her “rst K-9 demonstration. That changed her mind. When she took over in January, she said stability was the departments greatest need. She believes she has begun to lay the foundation for that. Weve started to stabilize,Ž she said. Ive been doing the one-onones and meeting with everybody individually. When I “rst started meeting with people, I told them exactly what were going to be doing. As that has come to fruition, theyre seeing Im standing by what Im talking about.Ž This is Davis “rst job as a police chief, but not as a law-enforcement leader. She was the director of professional development and training academy at the Baltimore Police Department, a civilian position. Before that, she spent 23 years with the Anne Arundel County (Maryland) Police Department, working her way up from patrol to deputy police chief. Her background speaks for itself,Ž Punta Gorda City Manager Howard Kunik said not long after he hired her. The conversation about her future „ and that of the Punta Gorda Police Department „ remains active.LEADERFROM PAGE 1On March 17, Sergeant Gail Gamble and Lieutenant Tabbatha Carter were recognized at the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated Finer Womanhood Brunch.

A typical outing, especially one that includes paddling in open water, might include 12 women. Women come back and forth to the area and many have scheduling con”icts,Ž Debi explains.

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.

Dont buy any,Ž a writer asks, what new or proposed law or action will make us all safer?Ž Simple: Ban the sale and possession of all “rearms ammunition. Once America has no ammo, there will be no more senseless gun-related deaths or injuries. Then maybe military-style assault weapons can “nd their rightful place in this world „ in a museum, and the history books. While Cambridge Analytica believes stirring up emotions rather than dealing with the facts is the way to change someones thinking, sometimes the facts can stop that emotional charge right in its tracks.Julie Moriarty Punta GordaEditor: It breaks my heart we are losing our children to this countrys opioid epidemic and children are losing their parents in the same manner. However, with due respect, what happens to those adults who truly need these opiate pain medications just to avoid intolerable pain? People who take these pain meds as directed, and prescribed by a physician who has the empathy to help their patients, live a normal life. Should these patients be punished and stigmatized? Should their doctors and pharmacists be punished as well? I think not. What I see happening is just that. These people are trying to live normal lives. If these medications help them do so why should they be singled out? Does that make them addicts and have that awful stigma to live under. No. Yet, they are! Not once have I read about people, who are not cancer patients, taken under consideration or understood by the medical community, whom, by the way, really make patients feel like addictsŽ before even listening to them Editor: The Trump Bump is now of“cially the Trump Slump.David Schum EnglewoodEditor: This is in response to your recent CRA takes a step back in EnglewoodŽ article. First of all, youve already stated over and over you are in favor of the CRA and the plans it has for our beloved community. That alone tells me you have no intention of being impartial or objective. Second, I “nd it hard to believe a majorityŽ of the 150 people at the last meeting supported the CRA and its land use proposal for Dearborn. Where did that even come from? Did they take a poll? Did they speak to every single person? Third, if the Dearborn project has been the CRAs prime focus since 1999, obviously there either have been some major stumbling blocks, or that, itself, is simply not true. So what is the truth? Who bene“ts the most from this endeavor “nancially? What will the impact be on those of us who live in this area? How will losing our Olde Englewood VillageŽ bene“t us when the small town atmosphere is what we came here for? I am not against progress. There is much that could be done to improve Dearborn. What I am against is the destruction of my home.Diane Garnes EnglewoodEditor: I recently read a poll that stated that 83 percent of Trump voters stated they would vote for him again. This puzzles me, as well as shows how insane the public at large may be. Why is it so hard for Americans to admit they made a mistake? Being fooled is not a sign of low intelligence. A highly skilled and long-term experienced liar fooled a lot of people. Trump has shown repeatedly that he is totally unquali“ed to hold the of“ce he was elected to. Americans, there is no shame in making a mistake. The shame lies in repeating such a serious error. We need to “x this error by any legal means open to us.Carl Edward Carter ArcadiaEditor: Dear Rotonda West friend; Im answering your editorial letter after your questioning mine. In my letter it said I had two four-day stays at the hospital and the grand total price was $199,000. Now, you dont know what they put in my body to jack up the price. Also, Ive had medical insurance since 1955 and I still have the insurance, plus Medicare. Now, you also questioned that $599 X-ray that was taken on my wifes left knee. Do you want to see that bill? Im beginning to see you have not any hospital stays or doctor visits the past couple years. Dont get me wrong, my insurance paid for almost all of the bills. What I dont like is the prices the hospital and medical places charge. Lets get where I pay out of my pocket, my medications. Three of my many medications was $20 each after your wonderful Affordable Care Act kicked in, I now pay $120 for each one. Thank you, Mr. Obama. So in 2017, I paid for medication out of my pocket $5,500 more than before the Editor: Carbon fee and dividend (CFD) is a way to “ght sea level rise and warming temperatures by putting an honest price on carbon without hurting the “nances of average Americans. To show that it works as intended, Citizens Climate Lobby has developed an online tool „ the CFD Calculator „ that uses characteristics of a speci“c household to calculate the policys impact on the households “nances. The calculator estimates three things: How much of the carbon fee is passed on to a household in higher prices for goods and services. This estimate is based on what you enter for household income, number of vehicles, monthly electric bill, etc. How much the household will receive in monthly dividends. This depends on the number of adults and minors in the household. The difference between the higher prices and the monthly dividends „ positive if the household is likely to come out aheadŽ (most American households do), or negative if their carbon footprint is bigger than their carbon dividend can cover (mainly wealthy households). According to the calculator, my familys monthly dividend would be $47, our monthly cost from the carbon fee would be $42, and our monthly net gain would be $5 per month. From our view, CFD looks good for the environment and good for our budget. Google carbon fee and dividend calculator and check it out for your household: www.citizensclimatelobby. org/calculator.William (Coty) Keller Port CharlotteEditor: As a snowbird,Ž I didnt expect to face a serious health issue while I was here in Florida. However, I recently underwent surgery at Englewood Community Hospital. I am writing this letter to the editor (my “rst one ever) because of the positive experience I had. From pre-op to post-op I was treated by respectful, caring and knowledgeable doctors and staff. The post-op stay in the surgical wing (2 1‡2 days) was exceptional. The staff, from housekeeping to nurses to my doctor, Tammy Birbeck, treated me as an individual, not just a person in a room. I never had to ring for assistance because someone was checking on me to make sure I was comfortable. The medical care was spot on and my team made sure I would have continued care after leaving the hospital. Thank you especially to the nursing staff in the surgical wing and to a very caring Dr. Tammy Birbeck.Marie Connor Rotonda WestNever enough, but drug addicts can get helpOUR POSITION: Fatal drug overdoses and consequences of drug use point to a need for a larger investment in drug treatment centers and counseling and a closer look at sentencing and laws regarding dealers.Michelle Keasers story is not unique. There are dozens, maybe hundreds, who can relate to her involvement in the local drug scene, her addiction and, ultimately, her death. Keaser, however, had some positives in her life that many others do not. She had a loving family that reached out to her. She had a child who she loved and who desperately worked to get her clean and sober. She left jail with a clean slate and a chance to rehabilitate her life. She was popular and smart. But it made no difference. The drugs grabbed hold and overwhelmed her. She turned to selling drugs to pay for her own “x. She turned her back on family and friends „ even as she spoke of her love for them. There are other pieces of Keasers life and death that make her story a little different „ mostly the charges by those close to her and a former reputed con“dential informant with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce that she was marked for death by her drug supplier. But one of the things that stands out in her story, chronicled on todays front page, is a plea by her father to provide more help for drug addicts. Keasers daughter lamented the fact her mother, when trying to stay off drugs, had to drive 45 minutes to a narcotics anonymous meeting. She criticized the lack of detox centers in the area. She called for more education about the grip drugs can take on ones life. Getting help is a big issue. Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell, who has taken some innovative steps in partnership with Charlotte Behavioral Health Care to get addicts help, is blunt when assessing the problem. As for addicts, those who want help we need to make recovery available and affordable,Ž he said. Many addicts are turned away from treatment because they do not have the money or insurance coverage.Ž But the answer to addressing the drug problem goes even deeper. We need to maintain strong sentencing to keep them (drug dealers) off the streets and hopefully deter others. We have too many legislators who try to reduce sentencing each year and also introduce various pieces of legislation to limit our ability to investigate and track criminals to include drug dealers,Ž Prummell said. While acknowledging there will never be enough servicesŽ to help addicts, Vickie Scanlon, CEO of Charlotte Behavioral Health Care, said money should not be an issue. We have substance abuse funding for individuals without insurance for detox and therapy services,Ž Scanlon said. And, through the Archways Foundation, we can cover out-of-pocket expenses for people to fund transportation to our detox from Englewood and other places.Ž Scanlon said there are also opportunities under federal funding that became available in 2017 for drug treatment. We try to navigate our way through the (various programs) to get people help,Ž she said. I just recommend people reach out to us to see what options are available to them. Lack of insurance should not be a barrier to receive treatment.Ž Its too late for Michelle Keaser. For others who struggle with addiction „ and their families who feel helpless „ there is help available. The challenge is to get them to accept it. “rst. Family doctors are one of the worst offenders of stigmatizing a patient. I would say thank you to all quali“ed physicians who care enough about their patients to make that judgment call to allow their patients to lead a pain-free and productive life. As well as their supportive families whom without their love and support, it would be even harder to emotionally and mentally fear nothing and no one again.Catherine Gurreri Punta GordaAffordable Care Act kicked in. I put up with eight years of Obama, so suck it up and put up with eight Trump years and make America great again.Dick Lohmann North Port 4

The Sun /Monday, March 26, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 19 VIEWPOINT 5Because John Bolton is “ve things President Trump is not „ intelligent, educated, principled, articulate and experienced „ and because of Boltons West Wing proximity to a president responsive to the most recent thought he has heard emanating from cable television or an employee, Bolton will soon be the second-most dangerous American. On April 9, he will be the “rst national security adviser who, upon taking up residence down the hall from the Oval Of“ce, will be suggesting that the United States should seriously consider embarking on war crimes. The “rst two charges against the major Nazi war criminals in the 1946 Nuremberg trials concerned waging aggressive war. Emboldened by the success, as he still sees it, of Americas Iraq adventure that began 15 years ago this month, Bolton, for whom a trade war with many friends and foes is insuf“ciently stimulating, favors real wars against North Korea and Iran. Both have odious regimes, but neither can credibly be said to be threatening an imminent attack against America. Nevertheless, Bolton thinks bombing both might make the world safer. What could go wrong? Much is made of the fact that Bolton is implacably hostile to strongman Vladimir Putin, whom the U.S. president, a weak persons idea of a strong person, admires. And of the fact that the president has repeatedly execrated the invasion of Iraq that Bolton advocated. So, today among the uneducable, furrowed brows express puzzlement: How can the president square his convictions with Boltons? Lets say this one more time: Trump. Has. No. Convictions. Even this scatterbrains Swiss cheese-style tariffs are too sloppy to re”ect forethought. He has sentiments, and visceral reactions to which he is attentive. But to speak of, say, a sincere sofa is to commit what philosophers call a category mistakeŽ „ sofas are incapable of sincerity „ and to speak of this presidents convictions (or plans, or policies) about this or that is a category mistake. It is frequently said that the decision to invade Iraq was the worst U.S. foreign policy decision since Vietnam. Actually, it was worse than Vietnam, and the worst in American history, for two reasons. One is that so far we probably have paid no more that 20 percent of the eventual costs of that decision that enhanced Irans ascendency. The other reason is that America gradually waded waist deep into Vietnam without a crossing-the-Rubicon moment „ a single clear, dispositive decision. In contrast, the protracted preparation for invading Iraq was deliberative and methodical. It is not true that, as the current president and the virulent left insist, President George W. Bush and his senior advisers liedŽ about Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction. They simply got things wrong, which conservatives, especially, understand was an event not without precedent in the annals of government. For the “rst time since World War II, when the mobilization of U.S. industrial might propelled this nation to the top rank among world powers, the American president is no longer the worlds most powerful person. The president of China is, partly because of the U.S. presidents abandonment of the Trans-Paci“c Partnership without an alternative trade policy. Power is the ability to achieve intended effects. Randomly smashing crockery does not count. The current president resembles Winston Churchills description of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles „ the only bull I know who carries his china closet with him.Ž Like the Obama administration, whose Iran policy he robustly ridicules, Bolton seems to believe that America has the power to determine who can and cannot acquire nuclear weapons. Pakistan, which had a per capita income of $470 when it acquired nuclear weapons 20 years ago (Chinas per capita income was $85.50 when it acquired them in 1964), demonstrated that almost any nation determined to become a nuclear power can do so. Boltons belief in the U.S. power to make the world behave and eat its broccoli re”ects what has been called narcissistic policy disorderŽ „ the belief that whatever happens in the world happens because of something the United States did or did not do. This is a recipe for diplomatic delusions and military overreaching. Speaking of delusions, one died last week „ the belief that this president could be safely cocooned within layers of adult supervision. Boltons predecessor, H.R. McMaster, wrote a brilliant book (Dereliction of DutyŽ) on the failure of of“cials, particularly military leaders, who knew better but did not resist the stumble into the Vietnam disaster. McMaster is being replaced because he would have done his duty regarding the impulses of the most dangerous American. George Wills email address is georgewill@ washpost.com.Beliefs a recipe for diplomatic delusions George Will Some of the states leading Republicans are “nding their new dance steps a little tricky to master. Many of them, including outgoing House Speaker Richard Corcoran and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, have long pledged support for the National Ri”e Association and, by association, its nocompromise stance on the Second Amendment. But Corcoran drew the wrath last week of NRA uber lobbyist Marion Hammer for his role in passing recent gun restrictions. Now, Putnam kind of tap-danced his way around the question of whether he would try to repeal that law if he is elected governor. Putnam has been considered by many the GOP front-runner in the governors race, although unabashed NRA supporter Ron Desantis has pulled ahead in some recent polls. Gun control will be one of the main issues in the upcoming election for both the governors mansion and the U.S. Senate race between incumbent Bill Nelson and likely challenger Gov. Rick Scott. Scott also drew the NRAs wrath by signing the gun control measure but doesnt appear to have a serious challenger for his partys nomination. Leading Democratic candidates all are pushing for even tighter regulations on gun sales in Florida, which is no surprise. They dont court the NRAs support anyway, and after the slaughter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School public opinion is shifting toward stronger laws. Putnam has called himself a proud NRA selloutŽ and opposed the restrictions pushed by Corcoran and signed by Scott. He said as governor, he would not have signed the bill. But as A.G. Gancarski reported for Florida Politics, Putnam dodged the question when asked if he would work to repeal the law if he is elected. Were going to enforce the law. I mean, thats what governors do. You enforce the laws that are on the books,Ž Putnam said before ending the interview. Hmmm. Well, yeah, thats true. Governors are supposed to enforce the law. But that wasnt the question, was it? Sure, it would be popular with the NRA and hard-line primary voters for Putnam to say that law has to go, but he has higher ambitions than winning the nomination. So, its a big political risk to say Youre goldarned tootin Ill work to repeal that lawŽ because those who favor stringent restrictions would feed him that for breakfast, lunch, bunch, dinner and late-night snacks „ kind of like theyve done with his NRA sellout line. For what its worth, Putnam stopped using the selloutŽ label following the Parkland murders. But Corcoran is doing his version of the Tallahassee two-step as well. After being slammed by Hammer last week for what she called his betrayal,Ž Corcoran sent a letter to the Constitutional Revision Commission saying he had grave concernsŽ about a proposal under consideration to let voters decide whether to ban the sale of assault-style weapons. Apparently, a majority of CRC members agreed. The proposal was rejected. Was Corcorans olive branch enough to get back in the NRAs good graces? Apparently not yet. After saying plenty earlier last week, Hammer hasnt spoken publicly about this. For now, all we have to go on is that she feels he betrayed the NRA. Groveling may eventually be involved. Marion doesnt dance. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune, where he covered sports, politics and city government. The column moved on website FloridaPolitics.com.Some GOP leaders dancing around gun issue Joe Henderson Guys, Im really disappointed in us. Theres chaos in the White House. People are leaving or getting canned at a frantic pace, a president who says hes anti-war just brought in the war-loving John Bolton as his national security adviser and rumors are swirling that President Donald Trump wants to “re special counsel Robert Mueller. That would be a bad decision. What President Trump needs to do is “re us. He needs to “re America. We dont deserve him and, lets face it, were failing him. Look at all we have let happen. On CNN Thursday night, former Playboy model Karen McDougal told the world that she had an affair with Trump while Melania Trump was home with the couples newborn son. McDougal said Trump compared her beauty to that of his daughter, Ivanka. And on Sunday night, Stormy Daniels told her story of an affair with Trump on 60 Minutes.Ž This is all our fault, America. We should have known years ago that Trump was the leader we would one day need, and we should have shielded him from all temptation. Shame on us. On Wednesday, the president tweeted his approval of the omnibus spending bill Congress delivered: Got $1.6 Billion to start Wall on Southern Border, rest will be forthcoming. Most importantly, got $700 Billion to rebuild our Military, $716 Billion next year „ most ever. Had to waste money on Dem giveaways in order to take care of military pay increase and new equipment.Ž He even had people in his administration go out and guarantee that he would sign the bill. But then Friday morning „ and this is clearly 100 percent our fault „ Trump tweeted: I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded.Ž What have we done to this wonderful man? Our insolence caused him to not only change his mind on the spending bill but to forget that he is the one who ended DACA „ the Deferred Action or Childhood Arrivals program for those brought into the country illegally as children „ and cast the more than 800,000 people into immigration limbo. I am so disgusted with me and with all of us that I could scream. All President Trump has ever asked for in exchange for his unbelievable leadership is: un”agging loyalty; endless praise; zero criticism; and opportunities to unethically and possibly illegally enrich himself and his family members. That wasnt too much to ask. And still, we have failed this great man. We have caused him to have recordsetting turnover in his administration and struggle to “nd quali“ed people willing to work in the White House. (Disgraceful!) We “rst made him brag about the economy and the stock market and then forced him to place onerous tariffs on friends and foes alike, riling the markets and raising the likelihood of an all-out global trade war. (Shameful!) We have forced him to watch the Mueller investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election wrack up a string of indictments and move ever-closer to Trumps inner circle. (Have we no decency!) And now we may be on the verge of pushing Trump to “re Mueller, possibly setting off a constitutional crisis of our own making. I dont know who we think we are, but that would truly be the last straw. It would ruin this presidency, and it would be all our fault. Thats why President Trump must take a bold, and Im sure quite dif“cult, step: He must “re America. We do not deserve him. We have proven ourselves unworthy of his greatness. He needs to “nd a country that will treat him fairly and appreciate him. And we must accept our failings and let this noble man move on. Fire us, President Trump. Before we let you down again.

Q: What is one important trait every leader should have? A: A believe a good leader strives to be the best version of themselves that they can be and inspires that trait in others. Q: Have you had a personal or business mentor? A : Tom Young has been an in”uential part of my personal and professional life since I was 20 years old. My children and I are fortunate to have the bene“t of his sage wisdom and abundant advice. Q: How do you de“ne success? A. Maya Angelous take on success resounds with me: Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.Ž Q: What is your most proud moment you have achieved in your profession? A: There is not one particular moment for which I am most proud, but a multitude of referrals and a steady stream of positive feedback from happy clients is truly gratifying. Q: Something no one knows about you: A: I am a very nervous driver. I will go way out of my way to not turn left across traf“c, and El Jobean and Airport Roads might as well be the ends of the earth.

PUT CLASSIFIEDS TOWORK FORYOU!FINDAJOB! BUYAHOME! BUYACAR! In early March, some residents of Charlotte County began seeing small, dark-colored grasshoppers in their landscapes. These are baby Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers which emerged earlier from the ground as they hatched out from last years eggs. These young grasshoppers are called nymphs. Nymphs are immature grasshoppers that look exactly like small adults except that they lack wings, may be a different color, and cannot reproduce at this stage. The nymphs that we see now are black in color with yellow stripes. To make room for their ever-expanding size, a nymph sheds its skin or molts and gets a little bigger every 15 to 20 days. At the last molting, they become full-”edged adults. You cant miss an adult lubber! The adults are huge and yellow in color with black dots and red coloration on the hind wings. Females are bigger than males and can get up to 3 inches long. The adults also have a pair of short, useless wings. While populations of this giant, slow grasshopper vary from place to place in Charlotte County, some initial reports suggest a good year for these insects in 2018. In addition to their large size and striking coloration, lubbers also have some other defenses to protect themselves. The lubber grasshopper has toxic properties that keep various animals from eating them. These grasshoppers can produce a frothy spray from their midsection which can irritate potential predators. As such, lubbers are not normally consumed by predators except by a bird called the loggerhead shrike. These birds capture and impale the lubbers on thorns which allows the toxins to degrade in a few days. While lubbers are large, they tend to eat less than some of their smaller relatives as far as consuming landscape plants. This, however, may be of little comfort to those whose landscape is eventually covered with these large insects! Their favorite plants include amaryllis, Amazon lily, crinum, and related plants, as well as oleander, certain jatropha, the Mexican petunia, and lantana. Some weeds are not sparred and may end-up on the lubbers menu including chamber bitter and Florida beggarweed. Lubbers have several invertebrate natural enemies including parasitic ”ies and nematodes which work behind the scenes to take out a few of these grasshoppers. As lubbers are large targets and move slowly, non-chemical control via hand-picking, can help reduce numbers. Keep in mind that the smaller nymph grasshoppers are easier to control than adults. There are some chemical options, including carbaryl when used as per label directions, but often an overwhelming infestation cannot be easily stopped. Also, while the largest number of adult lubbers will be observed in July and August, the single generation per year will eventually decline. Lubber grasshoppers are not everywhere in Charlotte County, but when present can be numerous. Monitor populations now and take any practical actions you can to suppress this potential pest to manageable levels.

The News Wire Monday, March 26, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER CHURCHES THAT SURVIVED 9/11 GIVE IN, INSTALL METAL DETECTORSSee page 5. WASHINGTON „ Facebook hasnt been fully forthcomingŽ as Congress investigated Russias attempted meddling in the 2016 presidential election, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said Sunday. Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on NBCs Meet the PressŽ that he questioned the use of this really sketchy “rm Cambridge Analytica,Ž but Facebook blew that offŽ as they did other concerns over Russias actions. Cambridge Analytica, which consulted on President Donald Trumps campaign, siphoned data from about 50 million Facebook users as it built an election-consulting company that boasted it could sway voters in contests all over the world. Facebook also came under scrutiny last year after the revelation that Russians had used the site in its attempts to affect the 2016 election. The revelation of Cambridge Analyticas action has caused days of fury for Facebook and its co-founder and chief executive of“cer, Mark Zuckerberg. Two congressional committees have invited Zuckerberg to testify, and he has said hed agree if he is the right person to appear. The whole industry has been reluctant to accept the fact that were seeing the dark underbelly of social media „ how it can be manipulated,Ž Warner said. Were still dealing right now with kind of fake posts and fake accounts.Ž Facebook took out ads in multiple newspapers Sunday apologizing for what it called a breach.Ž Warner also said the U.S. should re-examine the claim, which is largely re”ected in U.S. law, that social media sites have no responsibility for any of the content,Ž and Warner added maybe you should be able to move all your dataŽ when moving between sites. On March 21, a bill to limit a websites immunity for content when it knowingly facilitates sex traf“cking passed Congress „ one of the “rst impositions of liability for online platforms as the U.S. debates their responsibility for what users post. Trump is expected to sign it into law. Warner repeated his call for Zuckerberg to testify. He is the face of Facebook,Ž Warner said. He in fact created this industry, and he needs to come explain to the American public and to policymakers.Ž Zuckerberg should explain how theyre going to work with us,Ž Warner said in a separate interview on CBSs Face the Nation.Ž Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch was called before Congress last year, and Warner has said he now wants to hear testimony from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. After last years hearings, Zuckerberg promised a major ads transparency effort,Ž including requiring political advertisers to include a disclosure of their identities. Warner has said he wants Facebook to go further. The senator has pressed tech companies for more information about Russian meddling in U.S. elections, and called on them to harden their networks. Questions remain about how Russia used Facebook to sway the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. An indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller described a multiyear effort by the Internet Research Agency, a Russian out“t, and others to shape American opinions, including by impersonating Americans on Facebook, Instagram, Googles YouTube and Twitter. About 150 million users saw posts from a St. Petersburg-based troll farm whose main purpose was to push Kremlin propaganda. In addition to congressional investigations, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission is scrutinizing whether Facebook violated a 2011 consent decree with its handling of personal user data transferred to Cambridge Analytica without users knowledge, according to two people familiar with the matter. It is also facing an investigation in the United Kingdom.Facebook hasnt been forthcoming about data breach, Sen. Warner saysBy BEN BRODY and TODD SHIELDSBLOOMBERG NEWS AP PHOTOSPro independence demonstrators march during a protest in support of Catalonian politicians who have been jailed on charges of sedition in Barcelona, Spain, Sunday.BARCELONA, Spain „ Carles Puigdemont, the fugitive ex-leader of Catalonia and ardent separatist, was detained Sunday by German police on an international warrant as he tried to enter the country from Denmark. Puigdemonts capture, aided by Spanish intelligence services, sparked protests of tens of thousands demonstrators in Catalonias main city of Barcelona and other towns in the wealthy northeastern corner of Spain. One group clashed with riot police. Spain was plunged into its worst political crisis in three decades when Puigdemonts government ”outed a court ban and held an ad-hoc referendum on independence for the northeastern region in October. The Catalan parliaments subsequent declaration of independence received no international recognition and provoked a takeover of the regional government by Spanish authorities that they say wont be lifted until a new government that respects Spains Constitution is in place. Spains state prosecutor of“ce said it was in contact with its German counterparts to carry out its request to extradite Puigdemont to Spain, where he faces charges Catalan ex-leader’s capture in Germany sparks mass protestsBy JOSEPH WILSON and KIRSTEN GRIESHABERASSOCIATED PRESSPALM BEACH, Fla. „ President Donald Trump will not be adding two new lawyers to the legal team defending him in the special counsels Russia investigation after all, one of the presidents attorneys said Sunday. Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said in a statement that Washington lawyers Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing have con”icts that wont allow them to represent the president regarding special counsel Robert Muellers investigation. Sekulow had announced diGenovas appointment last week. Sundays announcement came just hours after Trump used Twitter to push back against reports that hes having dif“culty adding to his legal team, saying he was very happyŽ with his current attorneys. Many lawyers and top law “rms want to represent me in the Russia case,Ž he wrote, adding: Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer, though some are con”icted.Ž Neither the president nor Sekulow speci“ed the con”ict regarding diGenova and Toensing, who are married to each other and law partners, but their “rm has represented other clients in the special counsels investigation, including former Trump campaign adviser Sam Clovis. Sekulow said Trump was disappointedŽ that diGenova and Toensing wont be defending him in the special counsel investigation, but those con”icts do not prevent them from assisting the President in other legal matters.Ž The President looks forward to working with them,Ž he added. On Sunday, diGenova and Toensing released a joint statement, saying, We thank the president for his con“dence in us, and we look forward to working with him on other matters.Ž DiGenova, who provided the statement to The Associated Press, declined to answer additional questions about the nature of his and Toensings representation of the 2 lawyers not joining Trump legal team after allBy KEN THOMAS and CHAD DAYASSOCIATED PRESS PROTESTS | 4 TRUMP | 4 Catalan Mossos dEsquadra regional police ocers block the way to proindependence supporters trying to reach the Spanish government oce in Barcelona, Spain, Sunday.

I wrote to you for advice after my stockbroker had me invest $10,000 in each of the following stocks: Signet Jewelers at $6, Costco at $44, Macys at $12, Sears at $69, Bed Bath & Beyond at $23, Fossil Group at $14 and Hibbett Sports at $15. You told me that I was nuts to take advice from a broker whod been in the business for just three years. I know you will remember because he found your phone number and gave you a piece of his mind for trying to trump his advice. Please tell me whether I should buy or hold those six stocks. „ TB, Wilmington, N.C. Dear TB: Yes, I remember your brokers phone call. He verbally trashed me (and did a good job of it), but I realized that one cant reason someone out of an idea he hasnt been reasoned into. So I just listened to him shouting and calling me unkind names, and that made him feel good. Yep, he gave me a piece of his mind, but he didnt ask for its return. So I have kept it boxed in my desk drawer, and every once in a while, Ill open the box and tickle it with a ballpoint pen. You have a nice pro“t in Signet Jewelers (SIG$49), which owns Zales, Piercing Pagoda, Jared and Kay Jewelers. In fact, SIG traded as high as $150 in late 2015. However, earnings have slowed in the past two years, and demand for its baubles has declined. It would have been nice to sell SIG when it was trading above $100. Still, you have a swell pro“t of $43 on 1,600 shares, or $68,800. Youve got a $145 pro“t on each of your 250 shares of Costco (COST$189), one of my favorite places to shop. Revenues, earnings and net pro“t margins should continue to rise, and so should its miserly $2 dividend. Wall Street thinks that over the coming few years, COST could trade between $260 and $290. Keep the stock, on which you have a $36,250 pro“t. About a year ago, Macys (M-$30) closed a bunch of locations as management began to recognize that revenues were declining and the internet was sucking revenues from its mall stores. M now has 720 department stores, including Bloomingdales outlet units. Net pro“t margins have collapsed, and M seems to have lost its attraction with the consumer. Take your pro“t of $18 on 800 shares, or $14,400. Sears Holdings (SHLD$2.50) is a disaster. Many believe that CEO Eddie Lampert purposely ran SHLD to the ground so he could pro“t enormously from SHLDs various real estate properties. He has succeeded! Sell SHLD and take your loss of $9,975. (Thats $66.50 per share on 150 shares.) Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY-$27) ran up to $80 a share a few years after you bought it. Revenues continue to grow, but at a much slower pace, which has dulled investors enthusiasm in the stock. Blame the internet. You have a $4 pro“t on 450 shares, or $1,800. Sell it. Fossil Group (FOSL$12.50) traded as high as $139 in 2012 as its product captivated the public. What a nice time to have sold the stock. FOSL sells neat and unique watches and sunglasses but has lost its appeal with the consumer. Revenues and investor interest have declined. Sell your 700 shares and take a $1.50-a-share, or $1,050, loss. Hibbett Sports (HIBB-$22) sells athletic equipment, apparel and accessories. And management dropped the ball, as revenues are now in a nosedive. In 2013, HIBB was trading in the high $60s, but competition from directto-consumer website sales (especially Nikes and Under Armours), has wounded HIBB. I dont think your 600 shares of HIBB can recover, so sell them and take a $7-a-share pro“t, or $4,200. I was wrong as sin. The young man was right as grace. He earned you a $114,600 pro“t. So your $70,000 is now worth $184,600. Please address your “nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O. Box 8303, Largo, FL 33775, or email him at mjberko@ yahoo.com. Re-evaluating Investments Malcolm Berko ALBANY, N.Y. „ New York is among a growing number of states considering legislation to create government-sponsored payroll-deduction retirement programs for small businesses, which “nancial planners say could be a relatively painless way to help Americans reverse a dismal record of saving for their golden years. Personal “nance expert Jean Chatzky notes 52 percent of American households age 55 or over have no retirement savings, leaving them with only Social Security. Shes working with AARP in New York and other states to lobby for an individual retirement account plan with state oversight for small businesses that allows workers to have a portion of their paychecks set aside automatically. In my book of money rules, my favorite one is: If you cant see it and cant touch it, you wont spend it,Ž Chatzky said. Thats the magic behind the 401(k) and other work-based retirement plans. The problem for 3.5 million New Yorkers is that they dont have access to one.Ž With an estimated 55 million Americans lacking access to retirement plans at work, 40 states have considered legislation since 2012 to establish state-facilitated retirement programs for private-sector workers. Five have enacted state-run programs and two, New Jersey and Washington state, have launched marketplaces connecting employers with low-cost privatesector retirement plans. New Yorks plan, proposed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his 2018 budget and awaiting action in the Legislature, would have a state board oversee investments made through payroll deduction with no employer contribution. Its similar to initiatives launched in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland and Oregon, but with a key difference: Participation by businesses would be voluntary in New York, while the other “ve states mandate that companies meeting a certain size threshold automatically enroll all employees. We think its a fantastic idea,Ž said Corey Meyer, who with his wife Sara owns Little Bird Kitchen, a Long Island confectioner that makes jalapeno-laced chocolates. It allows small businesses to have access to employee perks that normally we cant afford.Ž The Business Council of New York State, which represents private employers, initially opposed the legislation. But the group is reevaluating its position pending clari“cation of the voluntary nature of the program, said Lev Ginsburg, the Business Councils “nancial services expert.Many states looking to help workers save for retirementBy MARY ESCHASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOIn this Friday photo, Katie Chaisson, a baker at the Psychedelicatessen bagel bistro, makes hand-rolled bagels in Troy, N.Y.

The Sun /Monday, March 26, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 WORLD MOGADISHU, Somalia „ A car bomb exploded near Somalias parliament headquarters in the capital, Mogadishu, killing at least four people along with the driver, police said Sunday, with several others injured. A huge cloud of smoke could be seen billowing over the area dotted with security checkpoints erected along a road leading to the presidential palace, whose main gate is just 200 meters (yards) from the blast site. The checkpoint also is close to the interior ministry. The car bomb was detonated at a checkpoint after soldiers intercepted and stopped a suspicious vehicle, senior police Capt. Mohamed Hussein told The Associated Press. Those dead included two soldiers, he said, while many of the nearly 10 people wounded are rickshaw drivers. Extremist group alShabab claimed responsibility, saying it killed 13 presidential guards. However, the group often exaggerates its claims of the number of casualties. A few hours earlier, another car bomb outside the capital killed one person plus the driver, police said. Of“cer Mohamed Abdi told the AP that the explosion occurred after soldiers arrived at the scene to inspect the suspiciousŽ car which had become stuck on a sandy road in the Sinka Dheer area. The car bombings come three days after at least 14 people were killed and 10 others wounded in a car bomb blast near the Weheliye hotel on the busy Makka Almukarramah road. Mogadishu is often a target of attacks by the Somalia-based al-Shabab, the deadliest Islamic extremist group in Africa. A truck bombing in October killed 512 people in the countrys deadliest-ever attack. Only a few attacks since 9/11 have killed more people. The Horn of Africa nation continues to struggle to counter the Islamic extremist group. Concerns have been high over plans to hand over the countrys security to Somalias own forces as a 21,000-strong African Union force begins a withdrawal that is expected to be complete in 2020. The U.S. military, which has stepped up efforts against al-Shabab in the past year with dozens of drone strikes, has said Somali forces are not yet ready.Car bomb kills 4, driver near parliament in Somali capitalBy ABDI GULEDASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSSomali soldiers secure the scene of a car bomb explosion near the parliament building in the capital Mogadishu, Somalia Sunday.

MEXICO CITY „ Autopsies indicate an Iowa couple and their two children died from inhaling toxic gas at a rented condo on Mexicos Caribbean coast, but there was no sign of foul play or suicide, Mexican authorities said Saturday. The prosecutors of“ce in the Caribbean coast state of Quintana Roo said that the cause of death was asphyxiation from inhaling toxic gases.Ž It said the type of gas hadnt yet been determined, but added that any violent act or suicide has been discounted.Ž Photos released by the of“ce showed investigators in anti-contamination suits and “re“ghters with air tanks examining gas connections to a stove in the condo in Tulum. The of“ce said investigators carried out a physical investigation of the gas connections in the room,Ž and the civil defense of“ce of Tulum would issue a technical report on the “ndings. In 2010, the explosion of an improperly installed gas line at a hotel in the nearby town of Playa del Carmen killed “ve Canadian tourists and two Mexicans. Iowa of“cials identi“ed the family as Kevin Sharp, 41; his wife, Amy Sharp, 38, and their children Sterling, 12, and Adrianna, 7. They were from Creston, Iowa. The family was reported missing by relatives in their hometown about a week after the family left for vacation. Creston police contacted the U.S. State Department, and the bodies were found during a welfare check at the condo in Tulum, on the Yucatan Peninsula. The Quintana Roo prosecutors of“ce said the family had been dead for between 36 and 48 hours by the time they were found Friday at the Tao condominium complex. Contacted Friday, the developer of the condo complex where the deaths occurred declined to comment. The Creston News Advertiser newspaper in Iowa reported that the family ”ew to Cancun on March 14. According to her sister, Amy Sharp texted their mother the next day to say they had reached Tulum, but relatives didnt hear any more from the family. The sister, Renee Hoyt, said the Sharps were scheduled to return to the U.S. this week. They were scheduled to depart from the Cancun airport on Wednesday and ”y to St. Louis on a nonstop ”ight. The family had planned to then drive about 200 miles to Danville, Illinois, to watch a basketball game Thursday, Hoyt said. When the family didnt arrive in St. Louis, family members contacted authorities, she said.Inhaling toxic gas kills family at Mexican resortASSOCIATED PRESS The laser treatments have reduced my pain from a 9-10 to a 1 or 0.

In 1967 Pope Paul VI issued an encyclical, Populorum Progressio,Ž on the progressive development of peoples,Ž in which he expressed concern for those trying to escape hunger, poverty, endemic disease and ignorance. In 1988 Jesse Jackson stunned fellow Democrats by soundly defeating Michael S. Dukakis in Michigans Democratic presidential caucuses. In 1992 a judge in Indianapolis sentenced former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to six years in prison for raping a Miss Black America contestant. (Tyson ended up serving three years.)

(AP) „ Karen Cooper was ready to go out on a limb to save her beloved, so she got married „ to a tree. Specifically, a giant ficus thats shaded Snell Family Park in Fort Myers for more than a century. The tree became the center of a neighborhood controversy when city staff began discussing cutting it down last year. Cooper, who lives nearby, began mobilizing to save it. The News-Press reports effort that culminated with the waterfront nuptials Saturday, complete with flowers, music, a tree-decorated wedding cake and a canine ring-bearer named Little Bear. Though rooted on city property, some of the Indian laurels 8,000-square-foot canopy and root system extends to a neighboring lot, for sale for $1 million. In December, the citys public works department OKd the trees removal.ODD NEWS Florida woman marries 100-year-old tree, hoping to save itpresident. DiGenova had been expected to usher in a new strategy for the president after Trumps lead attorney, John Dowd, resigned last week. Dowd had touted the cooperation of the White House and Trump campaign with Mueller. DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney, has been a “erce defender of Trump on television and accused the FBI of trying to frameŽ the president for nonexistent crimes. Dowd was the primary negotiator and legal strategist who had been putting together the presidents legal defense in the Russia probe led by Mueller. The legal team shake-up also comes as Trumps attorneys have been negotiating with Mueller over the scope and terms of an interview with the presi dent. Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether there was any collusion with the Trump campaign. The president tweeted Sunday, there was NO COLLUSION with Russia,Ž pointing instead to his 2016 Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said on NBCs Meet the PressŽ that the Russians hacked into the election and every one of the presidents top security advisers has said theyll be back. But he said the White House is providing no direction on making election security a top priority. Warner was asked if the president is acting like he has been compromisedŽ when it comes to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump congratulated Putin on his re-election last w eek and failed to bring up the U.S. election meddling or the poisoning of a former Russian spy on British soil during the conversation. Its more than bizarre that 14 months into this presidents administration, he has failed to ever call out Russia. He has failed to ever condemn Putin,Ž said Warner, the leading Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. There is something just strange about this, and I think its one of the reasons why Muellers investigation has to continue and why our investigation has to continue.ŽTRUMPFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOAir Force One is seen on the tarmac at Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Fla., Sunday, from the media van traveling in a motorcade with President Donald Trump. including rebellion that could put him in prison for up to 30 years. In Barcelona, riot police shoved and struck protesters with batons to keep an angry crowd from advancing on the of“ce of the Spanish governments representative. Police vans showed stains of yellow paint reportedly thrown by protestors. German highway police stopped Puigdemont on Sunday morning near the A7 highway that leads into Germany, police in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein said. German news agency dpa said that Puigdemont was taken to a prison in the northern town of Neumuenster. Dpa photos showed a van with tinted windows believed to be carrying Puigdemont as it arrived at the prison. Video footage also showed the same van leaving a police station in Schuby near the A7 highway. State prosecutors in Schleswig said that Puigdemont will appear in court Monday in the northern German town to con“rm his identity. It said in a statement that the question of whether Mr. Puigdemont has to be taken into extradition custody will then have to be determined by the higher regional court in Schleswig.Ž German state prosecutor Ralph Doepper told RTL Television that Puigdemont has been provisionally detained, he has not been arrested.Ž We are now examining the further procedure, i.e. tomorrow we will decide whether we will “le a provisional application for detention with the competent district court, which could lead to extradition detention later on,Ž Doepper said. A Spanish police of“cial told The Associated Press under customary condition of anonymity that Spains National Center for Intelligence and police agents from its international cooperation division helped German police to locate Puigdemont. A Spanish Supreme Court judge reactivated an international arrest warrant for Puigdemont on Friday when he was visiting Finland. Spain has also issued “ve warrants for other separatist who ”ed the country. Albert Rivera, the Catalan president of the pro-Spain Citizens party, celebrated the capture of Carles Puigdemont, who he accused of trying to carry out a coup.Ž Rivera wrote on his Twitter account: Trying to destroy a European democracy, ignoring the laws of democracy, shattering our harmonious co-existence and embezzling public funds to do so cant go unpunished. Justice has done its job.Ž But Miquel Coca, a business owner in Barcelona, vowed that the secession push wouldnt falter. All the negative inputs that we have received help us to unite the society even more,Ž Coca said. If we cant have this leader, well, then there will be another. This is a movement of the people, not of one person.Ž Puigdemont, 55, is a former journalist and mayor of Girona who was thrust to the forefront of Catalonias independence push when he was handpicked by predecessor Artur Mas to become regional president in 2016. He withstood intense political pressure from Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Spains courts as he piloted the secession bid. Spain had originally asked for Puigdemonts extradition from Belgium after he moved there, but later withdrew the request until Spanish Supreme Court judge Pablo Llarena concluded his investigation this week. Llarena ruled that a total of 25 Catalan separatists would be tried for rebellion, embezzlement or disobedience. In the meantime, Puigdemont was free to make trips to Denmark, Switzerland and Finland, as part of his effort to gain international support for the secessionist movement. Puigdemont was also able to successfully run a campaign as the head of his Together for CataloniaŽ bloc in a regional election in December in which separatist parties maintained their slim majority in Catalonias regional parliament. He had wanted to be re-elected as Catalonias regional president „ albeit while remaining abroad to avoid arrest „ but eventually was stopped by a Spanish court. Separatists in Catalonia are currently trying to elect a leader for the regional government before a two-month time limit is up and new elections are called. Spains Constitution says the nation is indivisibleŽ and any changes to its top law must be made by its national parliament in Madrid. Nine people who promote Catalan secession have been placed in pre-trial custody to prevent what Llarena considered a ”ight risk or intention to continue with independence efforts. Polls show Catalonias 7.5 million residents are equally divided over secession, although a majority support holding a legal referendum on the issue.PROTESTSFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOSCatalan Mossos dEsquadra regional police ocers stand amid smoke from a smoke bomb during clashes with pro-independence supporters trying to reach the Spanish government oce in Barcelona, Spain, Sunday.HARTFORD, Conn. „ A Connecticut inmate is “ghting the state in federal court after of“cials were ordered to pay him $300,000 in a lawsuit over a beating he took from another prisoner, but gave him less than half the total after subtracting costs of his incarceration. Rashad Williams, serving a 30-year sentence for attempted murder and other crimes, says of“cials basically used a state law on recouping imprisonment costs from inmates to reduce the penalty for violating his civil rights. His lawyer, J. Tyler Butts, said the states move violated federal civil rights law and blunted the laws goal of deterring human rights abuses. The State has gone to signi“cant lengths to attempt to reduce its liability and to deny Mr. Williams full compensation for his damages,Ž Butts wrote in a court document, accusing of“cials of a pattern of behavior demonstrating the States clear disregardŽ for Williams rights. Butts and state of“cials declined to comment for this story. In court documents, state of“cials wrote Williams cannot legally seek the remainder of the lawsuit award and the state has not waived its immunity from his court action. Butts argues the U.S. Constitution invalidates state laws that interfere with federal law, which applies in Williams case. The American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut agrees with Williams. Effectively what theyre doing is using state law to get themselves off the hook for a federal law violation,Ž said Dan Barrett, legal director for the ACLU chapter. It would violate federal law for the Correction Department to effectively discount the judgment it or its employees have to pay by claiming the prisoner has to pay for the cost of his incarceration.Ž To make matters worse for Williams, the state now is seeking more than $50,000 from him to pay public defender costs and other expenses. Of“cials have frozen $65,000 in his inmate trust account. Williams, 42, of East Hartford, was convicted of attempted murder, assault and other crimes in 2004 in connection with a botched car wash robbery in New Britain. The robbers and victims got into a shootout, killing one of the robbers and injuring a victim. In 2010, Williams and a violent gang member were placed in a cell together at Northern Correctional Institution in Somers, despite Williams objection. According to court documents, handcuffs were taken off the gang member “rst and he kicked and stomped Williams while Williams was still handcuffed. Williams suffered injuries to his head, back, ankle and knee. Williams sued prison of“cials in federal court, where a jury determined a prison guard, Capt. Dennis Marinelli, violated Williams rights by having him placed in the same cell as the gang member. Williams was awarded $300,000. Most states have laws allowing prisoners to be charged for incarceration costs. Connecticut law allows the state to take up to half of any legal award or settlement inmates receive, as well as certain property they own. The state collected nearly $4.8 million from inmates in the 2016-2017 “scal year. Cases like Williams are not common, defense lawyers say. In a similar case in Missouri cited by Williams, a federal judge ruled in 1991 that the state could not take $3,000 awarded to a prisoner who was sexually harassed by a prison teacher. The ruling was upheld by a federal appeals court. Williams request for the remainder of his legal award is before a federal judge in Hartford.Beaten inmate sues state for keeping half of legal awardBy DAVE COLLINSASSOCIATED PRESS

From sta and wire reports. NATION NEW YORK „ The two stone churches near the foot of Broadway, in the shadow of the World Trade Center, have seen “re and calamity and the sweep of American history, and through it all have kept their doors wide open. But in a sign of the times, Trinity Church and St. Pauls Chapel both installed metal detectors this month. Visitors on their way to see Alexander Hamiltons tomb in Trinitys historic graveyard, or who want to sit in the pews at St. Pauls where George Washington prayed and dust-covered rescue workers rested after 9/11 attacks, now have to pass through airport-style security checkpoints. The metal detectors, installed March 1, will be there until this world becomes a safer place,Ž said Trinitys vicar, the Rev. Phillip Jackson. Visitors to St. Pauls passed through them Palm Sunday as they gathered to mark the start of Holy Week, which commemorates the story of Jesus cruci“xion and resurrection. Church of“cials said the decision to step up security was not a response to any speci“c threat, but Jackson said a terrorist attack in the fall, when a man used a speeding truck to kill eight people on a nearby bike path, was kind of a wake-up call.Ž While no one wants to have to implement such measures, its a re”ection of the times we live in and our desire to keep our people „ parishioners and visitors „ safe,Ž Jackson said. The two historic churches, which jointly serve a congregation established in 1697, are hardly alone in lower Manhattan when it comes to security measures. People visiting the Statue of Liberty, the Sept. 11 memorial or the observation deck at One World Trade Center all have to pass through metal detectors. The New York Stock Exchange closed to tourists altogether after 9/11. Yet the appearance of security checkpoints at two churches long seen as sanctuaries still struck some visitors as something new. I thought it was weird,Ž said Rosie Meeks, of San Antonio, who visited St. Pauls with her 9-year-old grandson. Kijuanna Winn, of Atlanta, said she had never seen metal detectors at a U.S. church before, though she was becoming used to seeing them elsewhere. I think Ive become more accustomed to that now in traveling, with so many different attacks and gun violence,Ž Winn said. It didnt bother me.Ž The neo-Gothic Trinity Church was consecrated in 1846 after previous churches serving the congregation were replaced or destroyed, including a church that burned in a “re that destroyed much of Manhattan after the British occupied the city during the American Revolution. Trinity saw a new surge of visitors after the smash success of Broadways Hamilton,Ž since Alexander Hamilton; his wife, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton; and Elizabeths sister Angelica Schuyler Church are all buried in the picturesque graveyard. St. Pauls Chapel was built a few blocks up Broadway in 1766. George Washington attended a service there immediately following his 1789 inauguration as the “rst U.S. president at nearby Federal Hall. The church narrowly escaped being destroyed when the World Trade Center collapsed on 9/11, gaining the nickname The Little Chapel that Stood.Ž For months, it became a center for the relief effort. Volunteers met there to distribute food, water and spiritual counseling to rescue and recovery workers. For years, people left messages and mementos to the dead in the chapels iron fence. Metal detectors remain rare at U.S. churches, even in securityconscious New York. St. Patricks Cathedral, which gets an estimated 5 million visitors a year, does not have them. We have security at the cathedral, of course, but we do not have metal detectors at the doors,Ž said Joseph Zwilling, spokesman for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. Ron Aguiar, a Louisville, Kentuckybased consultant on church security and the author of Keeping Your Church Safe,Ž published in 2008, said many churches around the U.S. have armed guards, but he hasnt been recommending walkthrough metal detectors. The general consensus is were not at that point yet,Ž he said. Some synagog ues in New York and elsewhere have installed metal detectors, to the disappointment of critics like Rabbi Philip Graubart, director of the Advanced Institute for Judaic Studies at the San Diego Jewish Academy. He said the fortressŽ atmosphere reinforces fear as a daily emotion.Ž Asked about the metal detectors at Trinity and St. Paul, Graubart said they seemed like a shame.Ž Unfortunately its the madness of the world we live in,Ž he said.Churches that survived 9/11 give in, install metal detectorsBy KAREN MATTHEWSASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSIn this March 16, 2018, photo, visitors to Trinity Church wait in line to pass through metal detectors in New York.

(N) ENTERTAINMENT NEW YORK „ It took six weeks but Black PantherŽ has “nally been unseated as the top “lm at the North American box of“ce. The monsters vs. robots science-“ction sequel Paci“c Rim: UprisingŽ dethroned the superhero sensation with $28 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. But the result for Paci“c Rim: Uprising,Ž a Universal Pictures-Legendary Entertainment release that cost $150 million to make, was soft „ at least domestically. Like the recently released Tomb Raider,Ž its biggest business was in China, where Paci“c Rim: UprisingŽ debuted with $65 million for Legendary, which the Chinese conglomerate Wanda Group acquired in 2016. And even though Black PantherŽ slid to second place with $16.7 million in its sixth weekend, Ryan Cooglers “lm notched another box-of“ce milestone. Its now the highest-grossing superhero “lm ever in North America, not accounting for in”ation. The “lms $631 million in domestic ticket sales has surpassed the $623 million of 2012s The Avengers.Ž Black PantherŽ also becomes the “fth highest grossing “lm of all-time, rising above Star Wars: The Last Jedi.Ž The record-breaking hit of Black PantherŽ has been followed by a string of lackluster performers, including Tomb Raider,Ž A Wrinkle in TimeŽ and Red Sparrow.Ž Paci“c Rim: UprisingŽ may have taken down Black Panther,Ž but a blockbuster heir to still hasnt been found. Next weekend, Steven Spielberg will try with his big-budget virtual-reality spectacle Ready Player One.Ž The weekend was down 36.5 percent from last year, according to comScore, when Beauty and the BeastŽ was in its second week and the surprisingly successful Power RangersŽ debuted. And despite the “repower of Black Panther,Ž the year is running 2.6 percent behind 2017 at U.S and Canada theaters. One movie isnt enough to support a whole marketplace,Ž said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. We need a real shot in the arm here. Paci“c Rim, thats a “ne opening. But we need bigger numbers to be put up.Ž Paci“c Rim: UprisingŽ could point to better results abroad, where it grossed $122.5 million over the weekend. The July 2013 original, directed by Guillermo del Toro, was likewise conceived as an East-West hybrid tailored after classic kaiju movies, the Japanese giant monster genre. It launched with $37.3 million domestically and $45 million in China. The $411 million worldwide haul for del Toros “lm was enough to prompt a sequel, even if enthusiasm for a second installment was considerably higher in Asia. Steven S. DeKnight co-wrote and directed Uprising,Ž which critics largely slammed. It scored a 46 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The domestic market was a very important part of it and we really came in above any reasonable expectations,Ž said Jim Orr, domestic distribution chief for Universal. This was always engineered to be a worldwide event “lm.Ž The strategy was similar for Warner Bros. Tomb RaiderŽ reboot, starring Alicia Vikander. Domestically, it dropped steeply in its second week, sliding 56 percent with $10.4 million. Sales have been brisker overseas, where Tomb RaiderŽ has grossed $170 million thus far. MGM and Paramount Pictures animated family sequel Sherlock GnomesŽ disappointed with a $10.6 million debut. Forecasts had been higher for the sequel to Gnomeo & Juliet,Ž which grossed $194 million worldwide in 2011. The results were also modest for Steven Soderberghs Unsane,Ž a psychological thriller starring Claire Foy (The CrownŽ) that the director shot with iPhones. The Bleecker Street-Fingerprint Releasing “lm opened with $3.9 million in 2,023 theaters. Though both were inexpensively made, neither of Soderberghs “rst two “lms following his brief retirement from Hollywood has made much of a dent at the box of“ce. Last years Logan Lucky,Ž starring Channing Tatum, tapped out at $27.8 million domestically. But there were also bright spots. The Christian drama I Can Only ImagineŽ held especially strongly in its second weekend. The LionsgateRoadside Attractions release grossed $13.8 million, bringing its twoweek total to $38.5 million. I Can Only ImagineŽ has emerged as the clear faithbased “lm of choice ahead of Easter, likely to the detriment of Paul: Apostle of Christ,Ž which took in $5 million this weekend for Sonys Af“rm Films. And in limited release, Wes Andersons stop-motion animated Isle of DogsŽ got off to a healthy start with $1.6 million in 27 theaters. Fox Searchlight, coming off its best-picture win at the Academy Awards for The Shape of Water,Ž carefully selected the opening-weekend theaters to cater to Andersons die-hard fans. 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.

The Sun /Monday, March 26, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: Several months ago, you had an article in the paper about an 82-year-old man who had a constipation problem. You mentioned a couple of medications to take. I am an 82-year-old man, and just shortly after that article I became constipated for a couple of days. My wife told me to take ex-lax; I took it for two or three days, and it worked. Three days later, I had it again, so I took another ex-lax or two, and it worked again. I was sitting in my recliner a couple of days later when I remembered when I was in my late teens and had the same problem. My mother told me to eat some prunes „ wow, does that work. Wouldn't eating prunes be more healthy than taking drugs? My wife and I have been eating three or four prunes every evening since then, and I have had no problem. We read that eating prunes every day also makes our bones stronger. Is this really true? „ R.F.P. ANSWER: Some over-thecounter constipation drugs used to contain phenolphthalein, which is not safe for long-term use. Occasional use of senna or docusate (the active ingredients in most OTC brands) is ne. Prunes are a very eective treatment for constipation for many people. They are a fruit, but being dried, are higher in sugar than many others. Three to four prunes a day seems reasonable to me, and is eective for many people to treat constipation. A recent review of studies on the eects of prune eating on bone mineral density suggested that there is some benet. However, the studies were neither consistent nor of high-enough quality that I would recommend prunes solely for their purported benet on bones. Moreover, most of the studies used about 100 grams of prunes per day: 10-12 average-size prunes. This is a large sugar load (less than a typical soft drink, however), and it also might cause some abdominal distention, especially if a person started out eating 10-12 prunes a day; it's smarter to increase ber intake gradually. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have heard that endurance athletes may be at increased risk for Type 2 diabetes. What is the evidence behind this, and what do you recommend to prevent it? „ P.N. ANSWER: A small study and some anecdotal evidence have shown that even endurance athletes are not immune to developing Type 2 diabetes. People often think of Type 2 diabetes as a condition related to obesity and inactivity, but many people with Type 2 diabetes are of normal weight, and indeed exercise is not a guaranteed protection against developing diabetes. It is possible that some of the apparent link may be due to people who know themselves to be at risk for diabetes due to family history taking up exercise. In fact, large studies have clearly shown that regular exercise signicantly, dramatically reduces the rate of diabetes, even if it doesn't eliminate it. However, many of the nutrition products sold to endurance athletes are very high in sugar. One rule of thumb is that it's not possible to outexercise a poor diet. You can take in far more grams of sugar and far more calories than you can burn o, so prevention of diabetes ideally includes both exercise and reducing simple sugars and processed carbohydrates. That denitely includes fruit juices and many sports drinks, some of which are no better than carbonated sodas. Even elite-level athletes should be careful of their sugar intake, as simple sugars are hidden in many foods.DEAR ABBY: My ex-wife and I were married for 29 years. Then she had an aair with a co-worker's husband. Now that we're divorced, she thinks we should be the best of friends! If she has car, money or any other type of problems, she thinks I should help her. In the divorce, I kept the home, the furnishings, etc. She left with only a few things that were her mother's and her clothing. She drops by unannounced, and wants to visit or watch television. I'm baed. If she wanted out of the marriage and to have nothing to do with me, why is she still in my life? I have been kind to her, not wanting to put stress on my child. What should I do? „ Confused In Texas DEAR CONFUSED: Your ex is no longer your life companion. She shouldn't be acting as if you are. Have an honest conversation with her and create some boundaries. She should not assume she can drop by unannounced and expect you to solve her problems or comment on her day. Tell her you need your space and not to drop by without calling rst because you may be busy. DEAR ABBY: The world is changing quickly thanks to the digital technology available to us. We all understand the importance of an RSVP, attendance at a celebration and a gift to the host on a mailed-out invitation. What do you think about Facebook invitations to wedding receptions, graduation parties, etc.? Most are sent out to masses of friends on the person's friends list. Do you consider those to be ocial invitations, requiring an RSVP, attendance and gift? „ Waiting For My Snail Mail DEAR WAITING: Regardless of how the invitation is delivered, the polite response is to accept or refuse and not keep the sender hanging. If you choose to attend, a gift would be in order if the occasion requires one. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about visitors and visiting hours at hospitals. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: As an RN in a busy hospital, we often need to ask people to leave so the patient can get some rest, or to take a crying toddler out of the hospital. We have patients who are ill, they need peace to recover. "If a patient is dying, we gladly allow family members to stay in the room IF they are quiet and do not have a child under the age of 14 with them. Sometimes nurses are asked to 'keep an eye' on someone's child, but we're so busy with our duties and patients that we cannot assume that responsibility." „ Lisa W. in Bualo Dear Heloise: I have an old teapot that was given to me by my greatgrandmother, but I dropped the lid, which broke. I put a plant in the teapot, it now grows on the windowsill. „ Patty G., Lincoln, Neb.Are prunes better than OTC remedies f or constipation?

You can use this primal gift to go beyond what can be accomplished through emotion or through reasonable persuasion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The sad truth is that most people are just waiting for their turn to speak instead of listening to whats being said. Youll prove that youre not most people,Ž and youll shine. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). This days success will depend on how you pre-load it, so dont worry if it seems to be taking you forever to get ready for it. Be thorough. The details will matter, including the way youre dressed for this. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like to stay busy, but not with the same thing all of the time. Thats why it will be so fun when todays focus takes a turn. Bonus: Your involvement will mean everything to someone. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some would say there are important things at stake. Others would debate it. If you just try to have some fun, its an intention that will make your life better. The levity you provide will help everyone around you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Theres a sweet spot in regard to how much you really should care about what others think. Believe in yourself while being open to constructive help. Hold your ground, but let others share it sometimes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You take pleasure in the happiness and success of others. One thing youll like about today? Youll get more than one chance at this kind of pleasure, and your own success is not far behind. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Meaningful bonds are important, but appropriate bonds are even more so today. The social landscape will call for boundaries, which youll instate graciously without interrupting the ow. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one grows in theory. Even mathematicians and quantum physicians must, at some point, put the numbers to practical use. Youre ready to grow and willing to get brave and experimental and test things out in real life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). For today, it will just be a lot better for you if you dont care what anyone thinks. Of course, there may be some part of you that cant help but care. Turn your mental shrink ray on it, and ick it out of the way. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The ounder can change in both color and pattern to blend in with its background and escape detection of both predators and prey. Beware of bottom feeders of all sorts, as they can be extremely clever at hiding their true intentions. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (March 26). This year, close relationships will call forth your highest good.

Page 10 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, March 26, 2018 NATION PALM BEACH, Fla. „ President Donald Trump is planning to oust embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin amid an extraordinary rebellion at the agency and damaging government investigations into his alleged spending abuses, three administration of“cials told The Associated Press on Sunday. Two of“cials said an announcement on Shulkin could happen this week, subject to Trumps “nal decision as the White House hones in on possible replacements to head the Department of Veterans Affairs. One of the of“cials rated Shulkins chances of being pushed out in the next day or two at 50-50.Ž The three of“cials demanded anonymity to discuss a sensitive personnel matter. Trump, who spent the weekend at his Mar-aLago estate, told associates that he would keep two other administration of“cials who had been under “re: White House chief of staff John F. Kelly and Housing Secretary Ben Carson. He did say that hes expecting to make one or two major changes,Ž said Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, who spoke with Trump over the weekend, on ABCs This Week.Ž Now, other White House sources, not the president, tell me that Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin is likely to depart the Cabinet very soon,Ž Ruddy said. The White House did not immediately comment. Shulkin did not respond to a request for comment Sunday. Speculation over Shulkins fate has ramped up in recent weeks following a blistering report by VAs internal watchdog in February that found he had improperly accepted Wimbledon tickets and his staff had doctored emails to justify his wife traveling to Europe with him at taxpayer expense. Earlier this month, two people familiar with the White House discussions told the AP that Trump increasingly viewed Shulkin as a distraction as the White House ”oated the names of possible candidates to replace him, including conservative Fox & FriendsŽ contributor Pete Hegseth. A separate VA watchdog investigation, due out in the coming weeks, is also looking into a complaint that Shulkin asked his security detail to accompany him to a Home Depot store and cart furniture items, according to two people familiar with the allegation who requested anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. One person familiar with the White House discussions told the AP on Sunday that the White House was looking closely at roughly half a dozen candidates to head the VA, the governments second-largest department with 370,000 employees. Among the candidates being vetted include Hegseth, a former military of“cer and former CEO of the conservative Concerned Veterans for America; former Rep. Jeff Miller, who had been chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee; retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg; Toby Cosgrove, a former president and CEO of the Cleveland Clinic; and Leo Mackay Jr., a former VA deputy secretary who is now senior vice president at Lockheed Martin Corp. In the event of Shulkins departure, deputy VA secretary Tom Bowman would serve as acting head of the VA until a nominee is con“rmed by the Senate. Bowman has also come under criticism at the White House for being too moderate to push Trumps agenda of “xing veterans care. During the presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly pledged to “x the VA by expanding access to private doctors and “ring bad employees, criticizing the department as the most corrupt.Ž Last year, Trump promised to triple the number of veterans seeing the doctor of their choice.Ž But a Trump administration plan to expand the Veterans Choice program remains in limbo after lawmakers declined last week to include it in a massive spending bill. In response to the ethics issues, Shulkin has denied wrongdoing and complained about internal drama at the agency that has made it dif“cult for him to push through VA improvements, citing a half dozen or so political appointees there who were rebelling against him. But Kelly, the White House chief of staff, recently made it clear to Shulkin that he had become weary of the VA secretarys tendency to run to the media to voice complaints and claim a White House mandate that he did not fully have, according to a person familiar with the conversations who wasnt authorized to discuss them publicly and insisted on anonymity. The department provides medical care and other bene“ts to 9 million military veterans in more than 1,700 health facilities around the U.S.AP sources: Trump plans to oust Shulkin as VA secretaryBy HOPE YEN and KEN THOMASASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOVeterans Aairs Secretary David Shulkin arrives to testify on veterans programs before the Senate Committee on Veterans Aairs at Capitol Hill, Wednesday, March 21. HOUSTON „ Cellphone video of a sheriffs deputy fatally shooting an unarmed black man shows the man wandering in a Houston street with his pants around his ankles and continuing to approach the deputy as the of“cer tells him to stop. The video, obtained by the Houston Chronicle from a civilian witness, does not show the actual shooting because a car passes in front of the cellphone camera as the Harris County deputy “res a single shot. A spokesman for the sheriffs of“ce says the man had an object in his hand, but no weapon was recovered at the scene. Family members identi“ed the man as 34-year-old Danny Ray Thomas, and said he had been devastated after two of his children were killed in 2016. The childrens mother is accused of drowning them in a bathtub. Of“cers were responding to reports that a man was walking in the intersection with his pants down hitting cars as he mumbled to himself. Before the deputy arrived, a motorist had stopped in the intersection to confront Thomas. The deputy, whose name has not been released, broke up the altercation and can be seen in the video walking backward away from Thomas with his gun drawn, shouting commands at Thomas. He can be seen telling Thomas to stop walking and get down, but Thomas continues to approach the deputy. A gunshot can be heard on the video, but cant been seen. The deputy is next seen on the video crouching over Thomas, who is face down on the pavement. The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas issued a statement Sunday calling on the sheriffs department to release any dashcam and body-camera footage in the shooting and for the department to review its use-of-force policies to demand lethal force only be used as a last resort.Ž Its dif“cult to imagine how this shooting could possibly be justi“ed. We must demand that our law enforcement agencies, who are sworn to protect our communities, be held accountable whenever deadly force is used unlawfully,Ž Sharon Watkins-Jones, director of political strategies of the ACLU of Texas, said. But whatever the excuse, another unarmed black man has been killed by law enforcement, in the street and in broad daylight, and the only reason we know about it is because of bystander footage.Ž Thomas sister, Kita Thomas, said she and her brother both suffered depression and helped each other survive recent events. According to court records, Sheborah Thomas, the mother of Danny Thomas children, is facing two capital murder charges for allegedly drowning their 5-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son in a bathtub before hiding their bodies under a neighbors house in August 2016. Court records show Danny Thomas was serving a prison sentence for a drug-related offense when the children were killed.Video shows man before being shot by Texas deputyASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES „ He “nally went up „ just like the self-taught rocket scientist always pledged he would. He came back down in one piece, too „ a little dinged up and his steam-powered vessel a little cracked up. Still, mission accomplished for a guy more daredevil than engineer, who drew more comparisons to the cartoon character Wile E. Coyote from his critics than he did to iconic stunt man Evel Knievel. MadŽ Mike Hughes, the rocket man who believes the Earth is ”at, propelled himself about 1,875 feet into the air Saturday before a hard landing in the Mojave Desert. He told The Associated Press that outside of an aching back hes “ne after the launch near Amboy, California. Relieved,Ž he said after being checked out by paramedics. Im tired of people saying I chickened out and didnt build a rocket. Im tired of that stuff. I manned up and did it.Ž The launch in the desert town „ about 200 miles east of Los Angeles „ was originally scheduled in November. It was scrubbed several times due to logistical issues with the Bureau of Land Management and mechanical problems that kept popping up. The 61-year-old limo driver converted a mobile home into a ramp and modi“ed it to launch from a vertical angle so he wouldnt fall back to the ground on public land. For months hes been working on overhauling his rocket in his garage. It looked like Saturday might be another in a string of cancellations, given that the wind was blowing and his rocket was losing steam. Ideally, they wanted it at 350 psi for maximum thrust, but it was dropping to 340. I told Mike we could try to keep charging it up and get it hotter,Ž said Waldo Stakes, whos been helping Hughes with his endeavor. He said, No.Ž Sometime after 3 p.m. PDT, and without a countdown, Hughes rocket soared into the sky. Hughes reached a speed that Stakes estimated to be around 350 mph before pulling his parachute. Hughes was dropping too fast, though, and he had to deploy a second one. He landed with a thud and the rockets nose broke in two places like it was designed to do. This thing wants to kill you 10 different ways,Ž said Hughes, who had an altimeter in his cockpit to measure his altitude. This thing will kill you in a heartbeat. Am I glad I did it? Yeah. I guess. Ill feel it in the morning. I wont be able to get out of bed. At least I can go home and have dinner and see my cats tonight.Ž He got permission to launch on the land owned by Albert Okura, who bought Amboy in 2005 for $435,000. Okura was in attendance and said the event lasted about three to four minutes. The rocket landed about 1,500 feet from the launch ramp, Stakes said. Mike branded us as Rocket Town,Ž Okura said. It was amazing.Ž This has been quite an undertaking for Hughes, who lives in Apple Valley, California. Hes seen a ”urry of reaction to his plans, with detractors labeling him a crackpot for planning the launch in a homemade contraption and his belief that the world is ”at. Some naysayers have posted things like Hell be “neŽ with a picture of Wile E. Coyote strapped to a rocket. I hope he doesnt blow something up,Ž retired NASA astronaut Jerry Linenger said as Hughes plans captured widespread attention. Linenger orbited the globe more than 2,000 times during four months in 1997. Rocketry, as our private space companies found out, isnt as easy as it looks.Ž Hughes often sparred with his critics on social media leading up to the launch, through Facebook comments and a 12-minute video addressed to his doubters. Hes always maintained that his mission isnt to prove the Earth is ”at. Do I believe the Earth is shaped like a Frisbee? I believe it is,Ž he said. Do I know for sure?

Starting with the players who received good news, Ryan Yarbrough, Andrew Kittredge and Yonny Chirinos have all been told theyll be staying in the big leagues as part of the Rays new hybrid bullpen. Its exciting,Ž manager Kevin Cash said. Thats probably the best conversation you can have. They were (all) extremely excited, to say the least.Ž On the flip side, veteran relievers Dan Jennings and Daniel Hudson have both been told they will not be making the team this season. Hudson was acquired in the beginning of spring when the Rays sent Corey Dickerson to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Rays will be on the hook for $4.5 million of his contract if theyre unable to move him to another team. For Jennings, only one-quarter of his $2.375 million contract is guaranteed. So the Rays would only owe him roughly $600,000.

When next season begins, the Seminoles will not be considered an underdog after their first Elite Eight appearance in 25 years. Leonard Hamilton will have most of his squad back after the season ended with a 58-54 loss to Michigan on Saturday in the West Region final. That is the opposite from a year ago when he lost four starters and his top three scorers. That is why many back in October thought this would be a transition season for the Seminoles before they could make another run for a high seed and contend in the Atlantic Coast Conference next season. I dont know if we arrived a year early or not,Ž Hamilton said about his teams 23-12 season. We very well could have won the game and be on our way to San Antonio but we didnt.Ž The Seminoles biggest question going into the offseason is if the NCAA will grant an extra year of eligibility to leading scorer Phil Cofer? The 6-foot-8 forward, who averaged 12.8 points, missed most of the 2015-16 season due to a foot injury. Cofer and school officials have been optimistic that the NCAA will grant the request. If Cofer does return, this could be Hamiltons most experienced squad during his 16-year tenure at Florida State. Hamilton would have nine players back who average 10 minutes or more per game.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressAUSTIN, Texas „ Bubba Watson made the final of the Dell Technologies Match Play look as though he were on vacation all along. Watson won his second World Golf Championships title Sunday with the biggest blowout since the championship matched switched to 18 holes in 2011, a 7-and-6 victory over Kevin Kisner. Watson wasnt as sharp as he was in the semifinals against Justin Thomas, whom he beat in 16 holes to deny Thomas going to No. 1 in the world ranking. He didnt have to be in the final. If not for missing a 4-foot birdie putt on the par-5 sixth, Watson would have won the first seven holes. Kisner had a lot to do with that. After escaping in 19 holes against Alex Noren in his semifinal match, Kisner didnt put up much of a fight. He made four straight bogeys and only twice on the front nine was putting for birdie. Watson had scheduled a family vacation out of the country on Sunday, which he had to postpone. Watson figured he hardly ever makes it this far in golfs most fickle format, so it was a good problem to have. There was nothing fickle about his game, GOLF: Dell Technologies Match PlayWatson wins Match Play for 2nd World Golf ChampionshipAP PHOTOBubba Watson waves to the gallery after winning on the sixth hole against Justin Thomas during round six at the Dell Technologies Match Play golf tournament, Sunday in Austin, Texas. By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressKEY BISCAYNE, „ When Venus Williams slammed a forehand winner on the final point to win a seesaw marathon Sunday, she had enough energy left to spin in delight at the net, a triumphant fist leading the way. Some 21 years after her Key Biscayne debut, wins at the Miami Open remain something to celebrate. Williams squandered an early lead, fell behind late and then overcame three match points to rally past Kiki Bertens in the third round, 5-7, 6-3, 7-5. Williams blew a 5-0 lead in the first set and was down 5-3 in the third set. But she swept the final four games, holding serve at love for the victory. It didnt look good sometimes,Ž Williams told the supportive crowd. But thats why you keep playing until the last point. And thats why I love this game.Ž The match took nearly three hours on the hottest day of the tournament so far, and the 37-year-old Williams now must recover quickly to next play defending champion Johanna Konta. The No. 11-seeded Konta advanced with much less drama, beating No. 22 Elise Mertens 6-2, 6-1. In mens play, No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro extended his winning streak to 13 matches by eliminating No. 26 Kei Nishikori 6-2, 6-2. Del Potro won his first Masters 1000 title last week at Indian Wells. No. 2 Marin Cilic swept Vasek Pospisil 7-5, 7-6 (4). Williams regrouped after a disastrous opening set, which she was four times a single point from winning. In the final set she erased two match points at 5-3, and another in the next game.

Tobias Harris scored 20 points, Montrezl Harrell had 19 points and Milos Teodosic 15 as the Clippers boosted their playoff hopes by winning for the second time in seven games and snapping a three-game losing streak north of the border. Everybody did good things tonight,Ž Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. We challenged them at halftime and I thought every single guy came out and played great.Ž Austin Rivers scored 11 points and DAndre Jordan had 14 rebounds to help the Clippers wrap up a four-game road trip on a winning note. Los Angeles went 2-2 on the trip, and has won 13 of 20 on the road. Williams connected on seven of 11 shot attempts in the fourth, scoring 12 consecutive points for the Clippers in one stretch. It makes it a lot easier to run the offense,Ž Rivers said. It was, give it to Lou, basically.Ž Williams said he started heating up after his first shot of the fourth. I made one going left, which is my go-to shot,Ž Williams said. Any time you see your bread and butter going, I made two of those in a row, and I think everything else opened up after that.Ž Torontos DeMar DeRozan played with Williams in Toronto in 2014-15, when Williams won the Sixth Man award. When youve got a scorer like Lou, it gets to a point once he sees that ball go in, it doesnt matter what you do to him,Ž DeRozan said. He showed it tonight.Ž Jonas Valanciunas had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Raptors, who dropped to 30-7 at home, the best mark in the NBA. Thats the first time in a long time our second unit did not play well,Ž Raptors coach Dwane Casey said.

Toronto rallied, cutting it to 105-100 on Ibakas 3 with 2:58 to go. After a Clippers timeout, Williams converted a three-point play, then added back-to-back jumpers to close out his 12-point run, giving the Clippers a 112-103 lead with 1:29 left.ROCKETS 118, HAWKS 99: James Harden had a tripledouble with 18 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds in three quarters and the Houston Rockets rolled to their 60th victory, beating the Atlanta Hawks 118-99 on Sunday night.

Kevin Love added 20 points and 15 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who came in averaging 122.5 points during the streak and just about reached that even with a slow start. BUCKS 106, SPURS 103: Giannis Antetokounmpo returned from an ankle injury to score 25 points, and the Milwaukee Bucks held on in the “ nal few minutes after building a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter against the San Antonio Spurs.

NHL ROUNDUPOT goal gives Pens season sweep of FlyersAssociated PressPITTSBURGH „ Sidney Crosby crystallized the Pittsburgh Penguins hot run against the Philadelphia Flyers with the kind of goal that he and few others on the planet can create. The Pittsburgh captain then sealed his teams first season sweep of its crossstate rival in 11 years with a pass that wasnt nearly as flashy but just as effective. Bryan Rust put his stick down in front of the Philadelphia net just in time to redirect Crosbys feed past Petr Mrazek 2:25 into overtime to give the Penguins a 5-4 victory on Sunday. Pittsburgh pulled within three points of firstplace Washington in the crowded Metropolitan Division and two points clear of Philadelphia after improving to 16-1-1 in its past 18 games at PPG Paints Arena. We did some good things, especially the second and third, created a lot and found a way to win,Ž Crosby said of the Penguins, who have won a club-record 11 overtime games at home. The Flyers tied it on Sean Couturiers goal with 43 seconds left in regulation, but the Penguins controlled the extra period. Rust ended it when his 13th goal of the season gave the Penguins their first sweep of Philadelphia since 2007 in what could be a playoff preview. Crosbys second otherworldly goal in a week gave the Penguins the lead 17 seconds into the third period. The two-time MVP scored on an intentional double tap against Montreal last Wednesday. That one showcased his exquisite hand-eye coordination. This one showcased his strength. Crosby collected the puck high in the Philadelphia zone, used his left hand to keep Couturier at bay while using his right to dangle the puck before he skated to the left dot and ripped a wrist shot over Philadelphia defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere and Mrazeks glove. I was trying to skate into space, get open and just kind of watching him do his thing,Ž Rust said. Im not surprised. He is who he is for a reason.Ž Couturier exacted a bit of revenge when he knotted it late to assure the Flyers of at least a point to pull them into a thirdplace tie with Columbus. Its a big point,Ž Couturier said. We played a pretty good game overall. For sure, its disappointing not coming out of here with two points, but we can build on this and maybe do a little better in little areas. Overall, I think we can build on this and keep going.Ž Evgeni Malkin scored his 42nd goal for Pittsburgh, pulling within two of the NHL lead held by Washingtons Alex Ovechkin. Patric Hornqvist and Derick Brassard also score d for Pittsburgh. Justin Schultz had three assists for the Penguins. CANUCKS 4, STARS 1: Reid Boucher and Nic Dowd scored rare goals on the power play, and the Vancouver Canucks rallied to beat the reeling Dallas Stars 4-1 on Sunday night. Dallas Mattias Janmark started the scoring with a short-handed goal in the “ rst period, but Boucher tied it on the same man advantage. It was Bouchers third goal this season, all coming over two games in Dallas. Dowd scored his third goal with one second left on a four-minute power play in the second period. Jake Virtanen added a thirdperiod goal and Tyler Motte scored into an empty net for Vancouver, which won for only the second time in 10 games.

He isnt untouchable, either. New York Giants owner John Mara on Sunday expressed his disappointment in the controversial star receiver. Speaking at the NFL meetings, Mara said he is not angry with Beckham, who recently was seen in a video in bed with a woman and what appeared to be white powder, though the timing of the video and its content is uncertain. Its too often he allows himself to be put in bad situations and uses bad judgment,Ž Mara said, adding that the video wasnt helpful. He knows what we expect of him and now its up to him. We certainly are not shopping him. Coming off 3-13 when we played as poorly as we did, I cant say anyone is untouchable.Ž Beckham missed 12 games last year with a broken left ankle, so he was sidelined for most of New Yorks awful season. Hes already made it clear he wants a new contract, and Mara admitted Beckhams mercurial behavior „ which also has brought problems on the field, including a onegame suspension in 2015 „ could affect any talks. Beckham is entering the fifth and final year of his rookie deal and there has been strong speculation he will hold out during training camp. Contracts get done when theyre supposed to get done. Well just have to see what happens,Ž Mara said. He added that Beckham playing out the contract is a possibility.Ž The 2014 Offensive Rookie of the Year, Beckham has been New Yorks best offensive weapon when healthy. In his first three seasons, he had 288 receptions for 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns. His highlight-reel catches have been, well, a highlight of his short career. But so have incidents such as an on-field feud with then-Panthers cornerback Josh Norman for which Beckham was suspended a game in December 2015 for egregious fouls. Beckham is scheduled to make almost $8.5 million this season and has said he wants to be the highest-paid receiver in the NFL. For now, Pittsburghs All-Pro wideout Antonio Brown has the highest average yearly salary for the position, $17.5 million „ more than double what Beckham makes.Mara disappointed in Beckham, but WR not now on trade blockAP PHOTONew York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham warming up prior to an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 8, 2017, in East Rutherford, N.J. NFL: GiantsWilliams, who lives in South Florida and has long been a favorite with Key Biscayne fans, said they kept her going. I felt everybody behind me,Ž she told them. My opponent played well. I had a lot of chances; she had a lot of chances. I hope it was really entertaining for you all.Ž Williams, who is seeded No. 8, won the tournament way back in 1998, 1999 and 2001. Last year she reached the semifinal, and this year she outlasted her sister, eight-time champion Serena Williams, who was upset in the first round. I love it here,Ž Venus said. This was my first big win. I have a lot of great memories. I hope I can get another win this year. You never know.ŽTENNISFrom Page 1especially on the final day. Watson never trailed in the 28 holes he played Sunday, and he was never seriously threatened. The tougher match was against Thomas, the PGA champion who needed only to reach the championship match to replace Dustin Johnson at No. 1 in the world. Watson went out to a 3-up lead on the front nine, and when Thomas closed to 1 down at the turn with his first birdie putt, Watson won two of the next three holes to regain control. Thomas didnt make another birdie until the par-5 16th, and by then it was too late. Watson made his birdie from 3 feet for a 3-and-2 victory. Thomas said he was too consumed with what was at stake in the semifinals. I havent had such a hard time not thinking about something so much. And that really sucked,Ž Thomas said. I couldnt stop thinking about it, to be perfectly honest. And I think youre constantly getting questions about it with the media. But I need to be mentally stronger than that, and understand that its just a match.Ž Noren beat Thomas in the consolation match, 5 and 3. One year after Watson disappeared from among the elite in golf, he has won his last two starts. He was No. 117 in the world when he arrived at Riviera, where he won for the third time in his career. With his 11th victory on the PGA Tour, he now is back up to No. 21. And the two-time Masters champion added his name to the growing list of contenders at Augusta National. Im looking forward to it, and hopefully I can get this focus and my putter rolling like it is,Ž Watson said. Watson played 109 holes over seven matches, going to the 18th hole just once when he halved his match with Julian Suri on Friday. Through it all, he said he wasnt committed to only four or five shots. He was hitting high draws, low cuts, all the shots he created as a kid in the Florida Panhandle when he was just a boy with a club and a wild imagination. He wouldnt have imagined such an easy time against Kisner in the all-Georgia Bulldogs final that ended with the fabled dog licenseŽ score in match play. A dog license in Britain used to cost seven shillings, six pence (referred to as 7 and 6). Watson holed a 10-foot birdie on the opening hole, and then Kisner took care of the rest. His drive was short and to the right on the hill at No. 2, and he did well to get it just short of the green, failing to get up-and-down. Kisner then hit just inside the hazard and had to play up short of another hazard. Then, he found a bunker on the par-3 fourth hole. His next drive went right into the trees on the reachable par-4 fifth. Watson missed his short birdie putt to win the sixth hole, but not to worry. Kisners next shot bounced off a spectators head and next to a fence, and he had to chip off loose soil across the green for another bogey. This can happen in match play, and Kisner saw it Saturday in his 8-and-6 victory over Ian Poulter. I dont know what was going on. It was just pitiful,Ž Kisner said. Ive just got to forget this 12 holes and get back to working on the things that got me here.Ž Even in a final match that lacked any drama, Watson still managed to shed a few tears. His mother was with him in the gallery on the weekend, and they shared a warm embrace after he made a 7-foot birdie putt on the 12th hole to win the match. Its crazy to think about it,Ž Watson said. Ive got two World Golf Championships, and two majors. Its unbelievable to think about that, giving my mom a hug. Six years old, having one golf club for a year, no lessons. I can sit here and make up stories all day, but its absolutely remarkable that Im able to life a trophy like this.ŽGOLFFrom Page 1

Newman scored all 13 of the Jayhawks points in overtime and finished with a career-high 32 to lead Kansas (31-7). The Jayhawks will face fellow top seed Villanova in San Antonio on Saturday after snapping a two-game losing skid in the regional finals. This was college basketball at its best „ two blue bloods trading blows for 45 minutes in what was arguably the best game of the tournament so far, one that featured 18 lead changes and 11 ties. But Newman drilled his fifth and final 3 from the corner to make it 81-78 with 1:49 left. Newman followed with four straight free throws, and the Jayhawks defense stiffened enough to knock the favored Blue Devils out of the tournament. Trevon Duval scored 20 points for Duke. Freshman star and future lottery pick Marvin Bagley added 16 points and 10 rebounds in what could have been his final game for Duke (29-8), which fell shy its first Final Four trip since winning the national title in 2015. Grayson Allen had 12 points for the Blue Devils, but the seniors 10-foot bank shot at the regulation buzzer went in and then out of the rim before spinning away to force overtime. NCAA TOURNAMENT ELITE EIGHTA look at Sundays Regional Final games Villanova tops Texas Tech, returns to Final FourBy JIMMY GOLENAssociated PressBOSTON „ With all of the underdogs and upsets that have upended the NCAA tournament, no one has managed to come close to Villanova. The 2016 national champions are headed back to the Final Four, thanks to a fourth straight double-digit victory in a month of March where theyve played every bit like the No. 1 seed they earned. This tournaments a crazy tournament. Anybody can beat anybody,Ž guard Jalen Brunson said after the Wildcats beat Texas Tech 71-59 in a coldshooting East regional championship on Sunday to send Villanova back to the Final Four for the second time in three years. The underdog mentally, they may have it. But, honestly, they believe theyre good. Thats why theyre in that position. Thats (also) why were in that position,Ž Brunson said. Were a good team, and we believe we can keep getting better.Ž The Wildcats (34-4) will play the winner of the Midwest final between top-seeded Kansas and No. 2 seed Duke. Sundays winners will join 11thseeded Loyola-Chicago and its telegenic nun, along with No. 3 Michigan in the national semifinals on Saturday in San Antonio. Sister Jean, get ready for Father Rob. I very much look forward to meeting Sister Jean,Ž said the Rev. Rob Hagan, the priest on the Villanova bench. I was 12 years of Catholic School and taught by the nuns. I have great respect for the Nuns. Usually what Sister says is what goes.Ž But if these two Catholic schools „ one Jesuit, one Augustinian „ meet in the national championship game, the Wildcats wont be without spiritual support of their own. Hes our rock,Ž said guard Donte DiVincenzo, who scored eight points. He keeps us level-headed to make sure we dont get too high or too low. So to be able to share that moment with him was actually real fun.Ž Eric Paschall had 12 points and a career-high 14 rebounds, Brunson scored 15, and DiVincenzo also had eight of the Wildcats season-high 51 rebounds. After starting four guards, Texas Tech (27-10) grabbed just 33 boards and shot just 18 free throws compared to 35 for Villanova to miss a chance to play for a championship in its home state. We knew they were a great 3-point shooting team and talented players, but we also knew how tough they were,Ž Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said. We knew the identity of their team was the toughness and physicality, and that proved to be true.Ž The teams matched each other with 33 percent shooting from the floor „ Villanovas lowest since 2015„ and the Wildcats made just 4 of 24 from beyond the arc. One of the most prolific 3-point shooting teams in NCAA history, they need seven to set a Division I singleseason record. Theyll get that chance in the Final Four. Wasnt really a pretty offensive game. But we played pretty good defensively too,Ž said Villanova coach Jay Wright, whose team spent eight weeks in two different stints as the No. 1 team in The Associated Press Top 25 this season. Thats why I give Texas Tech credit, they did a great job,Ž Wright said. But we dont rely on our shooting. Theres a lot more to the game. Our guys take pride in that. We never worry about missing shots. Its fun when they go in, but we dont worry about missing them.ŽAP PHOTOVillanovas Phil Booth, left, and Jalen Brunson celebrate their win over Texas Tech in Sundays regional final game in Boston. Hello, NewmanAP PHOTOKansas Malik Newman is fouled on his way to the basket by Dukes Wendell Carter Jr. during overtime of Sundays regional final game in Omaha, Neb. Sophmore scores careerhigh 32 points, leads Kansas past Duke in OT for Final Four bidwas its leading scorer for most of the season at 12.6 points. There are going to be a lot of veterans. This was a learning year but we are g oin g to be g reat next year,Ž Cofer said. The Seminoles will lose Braian Angola to graduation. The senior guard averaged 12.5 points and led the team in 3-pointers with 64. Hamilton was pleased with how much the Seminoles developed throu g hout the season. The two players that exemplified that the most were sophomore Trent Forrest and freshman Ike Obiagu. Forrest, a 6-5 guard, was Florida States best player down the stretch, averaging 12.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists over the final 10 g ames. Obiagu, a seven-foot center from Nigeria, had 25 of his team-high 71 blocks in the final eight games. At the end we showed that we had grown and learned and made progress mentally and emotionally,Ž Hamilton said. We have a lot to be proud of. We can learn, improve and grow from the challenges and be even better.Ž Florida State will also have a more challenging non-conference schedule next season. Besides their yearly matchup with Florida, the Seminoles will p artici p ate in the AdvoCare Invitational in Orlando as part of a field that includes Villanova, Memphis, Oklahoma State and LSU. We are going to come back with a bigger edge and know what we have to do. Hopefully we can pick up right where we left off,Ž Obia g u said.FSUFrom Page 1

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Monday, March 26, 2018 / The SunBy CHUCK KINGAssociated PressJUPITER „ Lewis Brinson and Garrett Cooper, two players acquired during the Miami Marlins offseason rebuilding trades, learned on Sunday they had made their first opening day rosters. A South Florida native, the 23-year-old Brinson was the key piece in the deal that sent Christian Yelich to Milwaukee. He will start in center field and hit leadoff when Miami opens its season on Thursday against the Chicago Cubs. Its going to be an emotional day, I think, for me and my parents and everybody thats kind of been with me through the ride, and everybody that saw me play Little League and grow up loving the Marlins,Ž Brinson said. I just wanted to play in the big leagues, but to get the opportunity to play in the big leagues for the Marlins, thats going to be pretty awesome.Ž Cooper came to Miami in the deal that sent Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees. Hes expected to serve primarily as a utility player, manning left and right fields, along with first base. Its everyones dream,Ž Cooper said. Your big league debuts your No. 1 dream and making the opening day roster is another one.Ž Starlin Castro, also acquired in the Stanton deal, will begin the season as the Marlins starting second baseman. Manager Don Mattingly stopped short of releasing the entire 25-man opening day roster in part because it remains in flux, especially where the starting rotation is concerned. Justin Nicolino appeared to be in contention for one of the final rotation spots or perhaps a long relief role, but Miami designated the lefty for assignment and Cincinnati claimed him on Sunday. We didnt feel like he was going to be one of our 25,Ž Mattingly said. The Nicolino move could open a roster spot for Jacob Turner, who allowed four runs in two innings of relief in Sundays 6-2 loss to Houston. Miami also plans to start minor leaguer Dillon Peters, once a candidate for the rotation, in Tuesdays exhibition against the University of Miami. Meanwhile, injured starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen continued to make strides toward proving his elbow is healthy by throwing a 16-pitch live batting practice on Sunday. Chen is among the injured Marlins who will remain Jupiter to play with minor leaguers, but his rehab is finally showing signs of progress. At this point Im optimistic,Ž Mattingly said. You feel like youve got a pretty good chance if things stay on this track to get Wei-Yin back this year „ and fairly quickly.Ž Miami concluded spring with a 15-13-3 record, placing the Marlins in the top half of the Grapefruit League standings. I dont really look at wins and losses in camp, but I think for our club it was probably more important that we win some games just because of the predictions of how bad we were going to be,Ž Mattingly said.MLB: MarlinsLewis Brinson makes Miamis rosterBy JAY COHENAssociated PressMESA, Ariz. „ A higher glove. A grip change. A subtle shift on the mound. One subconscious move turns into a whisper in the dugout. A perceptive hitter tells his friends, and his friends tell their friends, and a seemingly innocuous habit „ practically undetectable for most of the world „ quickly becomes a major problem. Even for the mighty Clayton Kershaw. Its hard to tell how often it happens, but pitch tipping pops up enough that its on the radar of managers and coaches around the big leagues. We try to keep a hand on that a lot, like are our guys giving away pitches?Ž Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. For sure, we always keep track of that.Ž The issue of pitch tipping „ a physical indication of some sort that reveals what pitch is coming up next „ stepped to the forefront when Yu Darvish was rocked by the Houston Astros in the World Series. Then it traveled to Chicago when Darvish finalized a $126 million, six-year contract with the Cubs last month in one of the biggest deals of this round of free agency. The 31-year-old Darvish, who can throw seven different pitches, reportedly had issues with pitch tipping a couple times last year. After his final start with Texas, when he was charged with 10 runs in 3 ‡ innings in a 22-10 loss to Miami, Darvish told reporters he was pausing before throwing his fastball and was faster with his delivery for breaking balls. The Japanese righthander was traded to Los Angeles on July 31 and helped the Dodgers win the NL pennant for the first time since 1988. He won each of his first two playoffs starts, allowing two runs in 11 ‡ innings. But Darvish flopped in the World Series. He lasted just five outs in each of his two appearances, taking the loss in Game 7. Sports Illustrated reported in December that he was tipping his pitches, citing an unnamed Astros player.Major leagues on the lookout for pitch tippingAP PHOTOMiami Marlins Lewis Brinson celebrates with Starlin Castro (13) after hitting a home run in the first inning of a spring training baseball game against the Washington Nationals Tuesday, March 20, in West Palm Beach. on Jennings and Hudson either today or tomorrow. Notified theyll be headed to the minor leagues was Austin Pruitt, Curt Casali, Jason Coats, Micah Johnson and Kean Wong. Pruitt was in the mix for the spots occupied by Yarbrough, Kittredge and Chirinos. Casali was acquired for catcher depth at the Triple-A level. Coats and Wong were long shots to make the team from the start. Johnson, despite his strong efforts this spring, was hurt by being a left-handed hitter … something the Rays are not in need of. Pruitt is going to play a huge part for us (this season). Theres no doubt,Ž Cash said. But I thought with the way (Yarbrough and Chirinos) pitched, coming off a starters workload, thats going to provide some coverage for us.Ž This will mark the career debuts for both Yarbrough and Chirinos. Kittredge appeared in 15 games with the Rays last season. He went 0-1 with a 1.76 ERA in 15.1 innings pitched. My girlfriend started crying on the phone. She was obviously excited, and my parents were super pumped,Ž Yarbrough said. It was awesome. You dont know whats going to happen. I dont think its set in yet.Ž Said Kittredge: Its something I knew was a possibility, but to actually get the news was awesome. ƒ Having the news before the game, I was definitely at ease on the mound.Ž The final decision left to be made comes down to Johnny Field and Brandon Snyder for the final outfield spot. Were just not quite ready to make a decision y et. We j ust have to let it play out a little bit longer. They both have had great springs and they both do things that can help us win in that role,Ž Cash said. Although its not officially, this news essentially means both reliever Chaz Roe and infielder Joey Wendle will make the Opening Day roster. Jonny Venters was told following the game he wont be making the team. Venters has said hed be willing to pitch in Triple-A. Its probable he will see some big-league time at some point this season.INJURY UPDATESConcern for Mallex Smith and Brad Miller quickly went away over the weekend and they were replaced by Chris Archer and Daniel Robertson. Both Archer and Robertson were hit by balls on Friday, and both appear to be ok. Archer, who is scheduled to be the Opening Day starter on Thursday, says hes approaching todays bullpen session as if everything is 100 percent and isnt concerned about his forearm contusion.HOW THEY STACK UPWith spring training winding down, heres how the Rays team and individual stats compare to those around the league entering Sunday. As a team, the Rays .265 batting average was good enough for 10th out of the 15 American League teams. Their 26 home runs ranked 14th of out 15. The Kansas City Royals led both categories with .295 and 50, respectively. On the pitching side, the Rays 4.18 team ERA ranked fourth in the American League, and their 74 walks were the fewest issued of any of the 15 teams. Individually, Blake Snells 27 strikeouts was best among all American League teams in the Grapefruit League. Joey Wendle was also tied for first with three triples. Denard Spans .320 average ranked fifth in that group.RAYS 11, YANKEES 1HITTER OF THE GAME: Carlos Gomez, Rays: The Rays are going to need a big year out of Gomez, and hes had a nice spring so far. He had a solo home run in the “ rst inning and is now hitting .289 on the spring. PITCHER OF THE GAME: Kittredge/Yarbrough/Chirinos, Rays: On the day they were all noti“ ed theyd be making the Opening Day roster, the trio were nearly perfect for a combined 7 2/3 scoreless innings. Just two hits, no walks and 10 strikeouts between the three of them. KEY INNING: Bottom 5th: The Baby Rays went off in the middle of the game, as the team totaled three home runs in the “ fth. In addition to Daniel Robertsons solo shot, prospects Tristan Gray and Josh Lowe also went yard. As a bonus, prospect Jermaine Palacios added another home run in the sixth. PROSPECT WATCH: Josh Lowe, Rays: The 2016 “ rstround draft pick and No. 11 prospect made the most of his three plate appearances, with a home run a single, a walk and two runs scored. THEY SAID IT: The way the guys worked on defense … I know we had a couple of games where we didnt look so good … but for the most part we have played solid defense. We focused on that all spring training. Im really happy with how the guys responded. They practiced and then put it in the game.Ž Rays manager Kevin Cash on what impressed him the most this spring. ON DECK: TUESDAY: vs. Detroit (at Tropicana Field), 12:35 p.m. WEDNESDAY: Off day. THURSDAY: Opening Day vs. Red Sox, 4:00 p.m.RAYSFrom Page 1 By The Associated PressThe Philadelphia Phillies are banking on young Scott Kingery. A prized prospect who has never played in the majors, Kingery reached a six-year deal with the Phillies on Sunday that takes him through the 2023 season. The contract includes three team options running through 2026. Multiple media reports said Kingery was guaranteed more than $23 million. The 23-year-old Kingery is batting .392 in 20 spring training games and is tied for the Grapefruit League lead with 20 hits. Kingery hit a combined .304 with 26 home runs and 29 steals as a second baseman for Triple-A Lehigh Valley and DoubleA Reading last year. He was a second-round pick in the 2015 draft from the University of Arizona. Kingery is regarded as the best second-base prospect in baseball. The Phillies currently have Cesar Hernandez as their starting second baseman, so Kingery has also seen time at third base this spring and worked in the outfield. Coming off a 66-96 record and last-place finish in the NL East, the Phillies have been aggressive going into this season.
