Rachel Keesling Punta Gorda mayor oversees a changing cityPunta Gorda Mayor Rachel Keesling feels pulled in two different directions. As the city faces some tough issues on growth, she hears the crowd that enjoys their town just like it is „ small and peaceful. But, in her other ear, she hears those who say the city must grow to survive and not continue to pay its bills on the backs of taxpayers. Keesling has had an unprecedented fouryear run in the mostly ceremonial mayors chair, and said the job is much more than the part-time commitment many expect. I think Harvey (Goldberg, an ex-mayor) sold me when he said it was about a 10-houra-week job,Ž she laughed. I kinda knew better.Ž The mayor said the eight years she has served have gone fast, and she plans to run for at least one more term. We have some projects in the works Id like to see “nished,Ž she said.By JOHN HACKWORTHCOMMENTARY EDITOR PHOTO PROVIDEDRachel Keesling, Punta Gordas four-term mayor. BOTTOM LINERachel Keesling is a four-term member of the Punta Gorda City Council and has been mayor for four years. She is helping guide the city through a somewhat painful growth period. KEESLING BIOHOMETOWN: Geneseo, New York AGE: 48 FAMILY: Klint and Rachael Keesling have a son in college and a daughter in Charlotte High. EDUCATION: BA University of Florida and Masters Degree from Florida Gulf Coast University in educational technology. HOBBIES: Former tennis player, cheer mom, likes to travel.RACHEL | 4 with PUNTA GORDA „ With the sunrise behind them and the foggy harbor before them, the Christian Motorcycle Association came together to sing hymns and worship the resurrection of Christ for the groups Easter SonriseŽ service at Bayfront Center. Bikers and their families “lled the parking lot to commemorate the day and the camaraderie of the organization and its chapters surrounding Charlotte County. CMA aims to inspire other motorcyclists. (Our) purpose is to change one heart at a time for the biker world towards Jesus Christ,Ž said Ed McDonald, president of the CMA Charlotte chapter. Through our relationship and our common interest of motorcycles, we get to know and have a relationship with other bikers and get to lead them to Christ.Ž The Easter congregation was led by minister and CMA member Kalvin Kress. Kress has been with the Charlotte chapter for six years and has been a minister for even longer. Before,Ž said Kress, I was just a minister. I was just up in West Virginia. I didnt have a CMA chapter up there. When I moved down here, I found a CMA membership ƒ (Ive) been their chaplain ever since.Ž The Charlotte CMA chapter CMA hosts Easter Sonrise service on the harborBy DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERSONRISE | 4As he rented chairs and umbrellas on Englewood Beach last week, Mark The Beach GuyŽ Timchula said he was happy Florida lawmakers recently agreed with him and many of his sun-loving customers in deciding that Daylight Saving Time should be year-round. But even though lawmakers and Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently supported Daylight Saving Time (DST) being permanent, not everyone agrees it will actually happen „ or that its a good idea. Congress must amend federal law to make it happen. Bills “led a couple of weeks ago in the Senate through Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida), and in the House by Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Florida), have not moved much. One of the bills from Rubio would make DST permanent across the country, and the other would give Florida approval to establish permanent DST in its boundaries. Upon announcing his “ling of the bills, Rubio said in a press release on March 14 that he was introducing the bills because they would approve Floridas will and, if made nationally, would also ensure Florida is not out of sync with the rest of the nation.Ž Despite strong legislative support in Florida as well as some support from locals involved in tourism, not everyone is on board and some are still trying to gauge support for permanent DST. Florida Parent Teacher Association, for example, is against it. The nonpro“t organization Daylight Saving Time change unlikely, some sayBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITERDAYLIGHT | 4NORTH PORT „ Former North Port Police Chief Kevin Vespia had some surprises given to him at his retirement ceremony, but Mayor Vanessa Carusone gave him the biggest one of the afternoon: an annual award for single-parent families. The idea came to Carusone and Vespia when they worked on the North Port Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention, but as the years went by, the idea had not come to fruition. I wanted to make sure it started before he left,Ž she said. Carusone announced the creation of the award during her speech for Vespia. She added it will be called the Priscilla Vespia fund, in honor of his mother who died from cancer when he was 27. As Vespia wiped tears from his eyes, Carusone went further in-depth with the details. The award will be given to one single-parent family each year at the beginning of the school year. It will include funds raised from donors. The criteria for the family will be created by Vespia and his own family. Those on the Hope for North Port board, which is a nonprofit through New Hope Community Church, will narrow the candidates down to five and have Vespia choose the final recipient. The award was created in secret, Carusone said, and $1,700 was managed to be raised within the two weeks since the initiative started. They are looking to raise more funds by August. So you have four more months,Ž Carusone said. They will not only get a sizable amount of money, but also gift certificates and other things the community will give out.Ž And now we officially accomplished everything we set out for,Ž Carusone said.

The board will look at a grant to bene“t student education, as well as a potential change to contracted services involving Brentwood Elementary. The grant, known as the Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resource Grant, is provided through the Florida Department of Education. According to the district, an approved grant for $1,065,383 would fund diagnostic and instructional support services. It also provides opportunities for developmental screenings for children ages 3 to 5, Pre-K transition, professional development, technology, parent services and IDEA implementation, according to the district. The grant also funds a Florida Inclusion Network facilitator, which works collaboratively to support student placement and achievement in the least restrictive environment. The board will vote on the grant approval on Tuesday. The second item under new business is a rati“cation of a building contract for Brentwood Elementary. According to the agenda, this new rati“cation will increase the existing contract by $12,043,847. The work on Brentwood Elementary includes redoing the entire cafeteria, media center, renovation of the HVAC system and overall beauti“cation of the campus. The money proposed in the rati“cation is in addition to the already existing $12,500,000 for the project that was agreed upon in October, according to documents. The board will vote to add the additional funding. The board will look at a student art showcase for the All State, Art in the Capitol student artists. There will also be a presentation on Teen Court, which recently began meeting in North Port along with a school showcase on Career and Technical Education at Suncoast Technical College. The Sarasota County School Board meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in The Board Chambers, 1980 Landings Blvd., Sarasota. Meetings are broadcast live on The Education Channel, Comcast channel 20 and Frontier channel 33. Meetings are also streamed live on the districts website www. sarasotacountyschools. net.

The Relay for Life event will return to City Center Front Green on Saturday, April 7 from 3-11 p.m. The theme of the event is Route 66, which ties into the Road to RecoveryŽ: a program offered by the American Cancer Society to offer free rides to and from treatment. The whole reason we do this is to raise awareness and promote all the free service the (American Cancer Society) does,Ž said Tammie Jacobs, the event lead. Its kid friendly, family oriented. Its not just those who have been touched by cancer. Come out, show your support and be apart of the night.Ž Cancer survivors will receive a free dinner along with a goodie bag. A total of 25 teams will participate in the event. The teams surpassed the American Cancer Societys $45,000, so the new goal is $66,000 to go along with the Route 66 theme. They have currently raised $48,783.15. The top team is the North Port Police Department, who have „ so far „ raised $10,700. It is not too late to add a team to the event, or for a cancer survivor to come to the event.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, April 2, 2018 The criticism that comes with any similar public position is something she has learned to deal with. Sometimes I just smile and agree to disagree,Ž she said. She answered a list of questions about the citys current issues: Question: How long have you been on City Council and how many terms as mayor? Answer: I am in my fourth term on the City Council and have served four of the eight years as mayor. Q: Are you a native of Charlotte County, if not where did you move here from and when? A: My family moved to Port Charlotte from Geneseo, New York, when I was 4. They moved here in search of better weather for health reasons. Over 40 years later, my parents still live in the same house in Port Charlotte. I attended Charlotte County schools K-12: Neil Armstrong, Punta Gorda Middle and Charlotte High, so even though I am not a native, this is the only home Ive known. Q: What was your job/ profession before elected to council? Do you still work? A: Prior to being elected to City Council, I was a teacher in Lee and Charlotte counties and then became a stay-athome mom and volunteer in the schools. I received my masters degree in Educational Technology from Florida Gulf Coast University around the time I was “rst elected, but have not returned to full-time work. I volunteer on many committees and also serve on committees as assigned through the city. Q: Punta Gorda has been a relatively quiet town with few controversies until recently, with the buzz over a developer wanting to put a restaurant in Gilchrist Park, the complaints about not parking in the grass, the height restrictions, and the Trabue Woods naming. Is all this a matter of the town just growing up or is there some reason for all the discussion and controversy all at once? A: These examples are not so much controversial as they are just issues being addressed as our town changes and modernizes.Ž For example, Gilchrist Park had many ADA issues at the gazebo, pavilion areas and the playground was basically defunct. All of these areas have been rebuilt, or will be in the near future, so that all abilities can enjoy them. The park plan was also based around a wider path for pedestrians and bicyclists, enhanced landscapes, and more green space for all to enjoy. We are not “nished with the park, so I encourage patience while we complete all of the phases for a “nished project. There was never a plan to put a restaurant in Gilchrist Park and any rumors to that effect are baseless. Since 2008, when the park renovation plans were revealed and discussed, City Council has always included the no parking on the grass as part of the “nal design. Parking along Retta and at Harvey when you enter, along with off-street parking areas by the tennis courts, pickleball court, and playground have been incorporated into the design as well. Upon entering the park on Harvey, there is a roundabout at which one can stop, unload items from ones car, transport them along the sidewalk or Harborwalk to their location in the park, and then “nd suitable parking in the Retta area or behind City Hall. In regards to height restrictions, the building height proposal draft ordinance language is still being drafted. Any discussions around this now are purely conceptual. Q: What do you see for the future of City Marketplace? A: City Marketplace represents a unique opportunity for the right development. I would de“nitely like to see elements of community space incorporated into a mixed-use project. We have heard ideas, but most have been conceptual. Its de“nitely a prime piece of real estate so the project will need to be a feature for the city and contribute to the overall downtown feeling. Q: Do you think most residents approve of the potential new rules on building height and do you think it will spur development downtown? A: Again, the conversation on changing City Center zoning has been conceptual and a draft ordinance is in the works. Not only will the City Council conduct multiple public hearings, the Planning Commission will hear the draft as well. The intent of granting additional building height is to facilitate development in the City Center District while preserving and enhancing the downtown appeal. I am in favor of these considerations on large parcels, but not on every lot. I do think changes will help in creating a more business friendly environment, which will help us create a more stable year-round economy. Q: The grass parking has created much more discussion than some might imagine. When was the idea of not parking on the grass “rst brought up and where? Was it in a public meeting? A: Let me reiterate, in July 2008, as part of the TEAM Punta Gorda Waterfront Development Master Plan, the park renovations were revealed and discussed. The city then secured an engineer to undertake design of the Harborwalk/Gilchrist Park. During 2010, and almost on an annual basis thereafter, several presentations were made regarding design, all of which included parking on Retta and closing off the grass areas, all of this took place in public meetings. Q: Some people have charged the city is trying to run the musicians out of the park. You yourself said at the last council meeting that you had reservations about it being a year-round event? Can you address that? A: The city has reserved both Tuesday and Thursday nights for music and has refrained from renting any areas of the park (pavilions, grass area, etc.) „ from the hotel to the gazebo „ for private functions. We want to retain the area for music enjoyment and keep the historical musical tradition in place. However, I have reservations about removing the bollards two nights a week, year-round. We have not made it through an event season or a rainy season and we still have more landscaping to do in that area. I love the Guitar Army but they do need some leadership or organization so that we can work with them like we do every other group. Q: The lack of a commercial tax base has been a big issue. Do you see the city annexing more property or do you believe the decisions being made now „ such as the new height restrictions „ will spur enough growth to overcome that shortcoming? A: The lack of a commercial tax base means that our tax burden is shouldered by property owners. Since 2006, the citys strategic plan has had this as a focus area and general action item. We have yet to make real progress in this area because as we add a few commercial elements, we have annexed some residential. Q: Many people have expressed a desire to keep Punta Gorda just as it is. Is that realistic, especially with the plans for the Sunseeker resort across the river? A: Growth is coming our way from the north, south and east. We will need to adapt and stay engaged with other government entities, as well as look to the future. For instance, we are currently undertaking a transportation study so this information can help us prioritize and plan for what will be needed. Also, we will be taking a look at impact fees to plan for future roads and other infrastructure needs. Q: What would you like to see Punta Gorda look like in 20 years? A: In 20 years, I would like to see Punta Gorda diversify its population so that all generations feel like this is their home town. Its a great place to raise kids and to live year round, so I hope we can continue to build a city that attracts people that can enjoy this city as much as I do. RACHELFROM PAGE 1 FROM PAGE ONEhas between 20 and 30 members. We reach out into the community and show them that bikers are just regular people who love the lord and want to make a difference,Ž said Kress. Sundays event included CMA members from Sarasota and Fort Myers. This is my “rst time here,Ž said Joe Naples, road captain of the Sarasota chapter called the Faith Riders. Its just like being in church. It convenes ... everybody ... (as) a fellowship. It helps to keep the group together. We get to pray with people in prayer. It helps get the word out.Ž Of the Fort Myers Kingsway Riders, Jack Barney said services like the SonriseŽ service are important because it helps to unite the group and its faith. Camaraderie with the other chapters (makes it important),Ž said Barney. Resurrection Sunday (is important) because we all share the same mission ... to be lifted up together. It unites our faith. It builds us back up again for the purpose of the calling that we all share together, to spread the good news that Jesus is alive.Ž Many of the CMA members discussed the importance of helping bikers who were lostŽ and the importance of the organizations efforts to support those riders. According to Charlotte CMA member Ed Godwin, those who are lost are living a life separated from Him. Theres a lot of lost souls out there,Ž said Godwin, and I enjoy riding my motorcycle. So this is an avenue for me to meet bikers and not just bikers ... other people too. Its an opening that I could get a shot at them and bring them to the Lord.Ž Yvonne Pawlicki and her husband are both members of the Charlotte CMA chapter. She described the lostŽ as people who are continually making mistakes. Theyre doing the wrong thing,Ž said Pawlicki. Whether it be drinking too much ƒ dating too much. All of those things that we consider sins. Theyre only doing that because they dont know the Lord because if they knew the Lord, they wouldnt be doing that. But, you cant walk up to them. Our motto is dont preach it to anybody just let them know were here you ... well talk to you.Ž Despite the historical stigma that runs with bikers, McDonald said that while he does believe the stigma still exists, biker groups like CMA are helping to diminish it. We run across that all the time,Ž said McDonald. Bikers are helping with this group and with that group. We are just everyday people too. We just do our part to bring Christ into the world and to help.Ž Kress said that CMA helps our society in multiple ways. We actually do clean ups. We go around and clean up different highways and byways. We go to different Harley (Davidson) events. We bless bikes. We pray for different people. We go to the jails. We go overseas. There are 100 things that CMA does that we are apart of.Ž The Sunday morning service ended with the group singing House of the Rising SunŽ made popular by The Animals and Bob Dylan in the 60s. The song was teased as the groups Amazing Grace.Ž After which, the bikers road off, one by one, on east Retta Esplanade with a mission: breakfast. Email: dsutphin@sun-herald.comSONRISEFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY DANIEL SUTPHINMinister Kalvin Kress speaks to a congregation at Bayfront Center in Punta Gorda for an Easter Sunday SonriseŽ service. had even asked Scott to veto the bill and has reached out to Rubios of“ce with concerns over the bills he has “led. We are concerned about the safety of our children waiting for school buses, walking or riding their bikes to school in the dark,Ž said Florida PTA Legislation Chair Angie Gallo. If the bill passes through Congress we will not see a sunrise in parts of Florida during the winter months until 8:15 a.m. or 8:20 a.m.,Ž Gallo said. And that will put our youngest children in jeopardy and have our high school students attending school for over an hour in the dark,Ž according to Gallo. Prior to its passage in the Florida Legislature, Charlotte County Public Schools had also supported the way it is right now „ where clocks spring an hour forward March 11 through Nov. 4 during DST and then back again. Florida PTA points to some news reports where in 1974 a short-lived, emergency DST act signed into law by former President Richard Nixon involved deadly consequences. In the “rst month, eight children were killed and six of the deaths were attributed directly to children going to school in the darkness,Ž said Gallo. We do expect this bill to receive resistance federally,Ž Gallo said, adding some media groups also have concerns about the impact it could have on programming. Rubios release, however, claimed permanent DST reduces car crashes and car wrecks involving pedestrians.Ž He also pointed to bene“ts to the economy and agriculture it could spur, along with increasing physical “tness, reducing childhood obesity, positively impacting wildlife conservation, and reducing robberies by 27 percent. Meanwhile, the Florida Chamber of Commerce „ which has not taken a position on the issue „ is still actively soliciting opinions from its members to see where Floridas business community stands,Ž according to Florida Chamber of Commerce Director of Infrastructure and Governance Policy Christopher Emmanuel. I believe that a change is very unlikely in the near future,Ž Emmanuel said. Emmanuel shared a memo with the Sun that he provided to the chambers Board of Directors recently, which said the legislation signed by Scott has an uncertain path forward.Ž This merely expresses the intent of the Florida Legislature and has no practical effect nor does it bind future Legislatures or governors,Ž Emmanuels memo stated. Emmanuel believes that given the tenor in Washington, D.C., Congress will probably not act on this. And not all members of Congress from Florida are actively pushing for it. This isnt something that the congressman is considering right now,Ž said U.S. House Rep. Tom Rooneys spokesperson Allison Nielsen. Timchula, The Beach Guy,Ž said he was bummed outŽ about Congressional inaction so far on this „ as well as other items growing stagnant in Washington, D.C. This year in Tallahassee, Sen. Greg Steube (R-Sarasota) had introduced a year-round DST bill in the Senate, which was substituted by a prevailing House version (HB 1013) signed by Scott. Rep Mike Grant (R-Port Charlotte) voted in favor of it, while Rep. Julio Gonzalez (R-Venice) voted against it. Overall in both houses, 136 state lawmakers voted for year-round DST. Just 13 cast nay votes.Email: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comDAYLIGHTFROM PAGE 1

Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system. Jane Russell was painted on the nose of a B-29, four-engine bomber ”ying out of Kadina Air Force Base on Okinawa in the Paci“c during the Korean War. Emblazoned below her shapely form was The Outlaw,Ž the name of her movie from 1943. Staff Sgt. Robert Wollitz was a side-gunner on the bomber during the war. He ”ew 33 combat missions on The OutlawŽ during the Korean con”ict. He is now a resident of Rivers Edge Mobile Home Park, south of Fort Ogden near Arcadia. At the time, he was a member of the 28th Bomb Squadron, 19th Bomb Group, 20th Air Force. Wollitzs out“t ”ew ground support missions for U.S. Marines and Army troops battling the North Koreans and Chinese. In addition, they carpet-bombed many of the North Koreans major cities with incendiary bombs that disintegrated them. Our plane was the “rst bomber to ”y 15 combat missions in Korea,Ž Wollitz recalled nearly 70 years later. The Outlaws crew received special recognition for this feat.Ž They ”ew over the Chosin Reservoir as part of an attempt by the 20th Air Force to provide air support to Gen. H.M. Howling MadŽ Smith and his 20,000-plus members of the 1st Marine Division surround by hundreds of thousands of enemy North Korean and Chinese troops. We were supporting our Marines when we were ”ying against targets above the Chosin Reservoir,Ž Wollitz recalled. By then, they were already encircled by the enemy.Ž With the help of Wollitz and other B-29 crews above, the Leathernecks fought their way back down to the coast 75 miles away. They traveled on a narrow rutted road along steep mountain terrain to waiting transport ships that took them out of harms way. But not before hundreds of Marines froze to death in the sub-zero cold in one of the most daring battles in the history of the U.S. Marine Corps. Wollitz remembered how cold it was even inside their pressurized bomber during those ”ights over the reservoir. When we ”ew those Chosin Reservoir missions the outside air temperature was 70 degrees below zero. In our bomber, you could have frozen water even though our cabin was pressurized,Ž he said. When it got that cold outside, we had to divert all the heat to the engines to keep them running.Ž It was during this period that Wollitzs B-29 crew was ordered to make a ”ight over Manchuria looking for more Chinese troops. We knew nothing about the orders until we were airborne. We ”ew into Manchuria all by ourselves looking for the enemy.Ž Wollitz doesnt remember what they found in Manchuria, but he does recall it was a quick ”ight in and out of enemy territory. It was at this point that Gen. Douglas Mac Arthur, the supreme Allied commander in Korea, was thinking about running the Chinese forces out of the country and back to Manchuria. The general was even considering using atomic bombs against the enemy. Thats when President Harry Truman removed him from his command for insubordination. We got hit by a lot of anti-aircraft “re. When we came back from a mission wed “nd all kinds of shrapnel holes in our plane. I had one piece of shrapnel pass about a foot over my head and put a hole in the side of the airplane. We were lucky because we never had any anti-aircraft “re that put us out of commission. Wollitz was a 20-yearold side gunner on his B-29 bomber. It was his job to man one of the 10 .50 caliber machine-guns aboard the plane. Shortly after arriving at Anderson Air Force Base on Guam in June 1950 they were told to prepare a small kit of personal things and bring an extra set of fatigues. Their 28th Squadron was going to take part in some action in Korea they knew little about. At the time I couldnt have told you where Korea was,Ž he said. Our 19th Bomb Group got about a dozen of its 45 B-29s in the air by midnight. When we got to Kadina, we didnt have a clue what was going on. Things got serious in a hurry. The next day, June 2, 1950, we ”ew our “rst combat mission against the railroad station at Seoul, South Korea. We bombed the hell out of it. We never got bothered much by MIG “ghters. They usually left our bomber formations alone. We could see the enemy “ghters coming off the “eld in Manchuria on the other side of the river. If we stayed in formation we never had a big problem with the MiGS. If you got caught out on your own you could be in deep trouble. They called this area MiG Alley. Losing an engine on a bombing run was a bit unnerving. On occasion, we came back to Kadina a time or two on three engines,Ž he said. These missions strained a B-29 pretty hard. We could run 10 hours or more and we might have to stop in Japan on the way back to base to fuel up. We had no aerial refueling.Ž Transportation targets were their main objectives „ railroad lines and bridges. Other times they would carpet bomb enemy cities with incendiary bombs. Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, was a favorite target of Wollitzs bomb group. It repeatedly dropped incendiary bombs on the city. Wollitzs most vivid recollection of a single mission was when The OutlawŽ got a 2,000-pound bomb stuck in the bomb bay that wouldnt eject. We depressurized and I went back in the bomb bay and tried to get it out. First, I made sure the wires that triggered the bombs fuses were still in place which they were,Ž he said. There was a little catwalk in the bomb bay and I was skinny enough I could get on it and push the bomb. It wouldnt budge. There was nothing below the tip of my toes. Nothing but 15,000 feet down to the Sea of Japan. When we landed the damn bomb was still in our bomb bay. We taxied off the runway and were headed for our hard stand where the bomber was parked when we hit a bump. Out the unexploded bomb went, but it didnt explode. Later a crew loaded the bomb into a truck. They took it and dumped it into the ocean at Okinawa,Ž he said. Our pilot was trying to get me a Distinguished Flying Cross for my efforts to get the bomb out of our bomb bay,Ž Wollitz said. I never got my DFC, but Im just happy I made it back from that war. From June 1950 until January of the following year, Wollitz ”ew with the 20th Air Force on B-29 bombing raids over Korea. The rest of his hitch was served with the 301st Bomb Group, a Boeing B-47 bomber squadron based at Barksdale Air Force Base in Shreveport, Louisiana. The B-47 was atomic bomb compatible. When Wollitz got out of the Air Force he went to work for General Motors. For 30 years he worked as a tool and die maker with G.M. In 1991, he retired and Wollitz and his wife, Norma, moved to Florida in 1999. The couple has three adult children: John, Kathy and Jeanne.Airman flew 33 combat missions in Korea KNOW A VETERAN?Don Moores interviews are a part of the Veterans History Project through the Library of Congress.

The Department has assigned permit f ile number FLA014126-035 to t he proposed project. The intent to issue and application f ile are available for public inspect ion at the Departments portal http://prodenv.dep.state.fl.us/De pNexus/public/electronic -documents/FLA014126/facility!search or are available during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department's South District Office, 2295 V ictoria Ave., Suite 364, Ft. Myers, Florida 33901, at phone number (239) 344-5600 The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative heari ng is filed unde r Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial inter ests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the informatio n set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida A dministrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (receiv ed by th e Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written no tice, whichever occurs first. Sec tio n 120.60(3), Florida Statutes however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt o f such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy o f the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of an y person to file a petiti on or reques t for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) w ill be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in complianc e with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, i f any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be af fected by the determination; (c ) A statement of when and ho w the petitioner received notice of the Department's decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indi cate; (e) A concise statement of the ulti mate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner con tends warrant reversal or modifi cation of the Department's proposed action; (f) A statement of the spec ific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respec t to the Department's proposed ac tion. Because the adminis trative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be aff ected by any such final decision of the Department have the right t o petition to become a party to t he proceeding, in accordance w ith the requirements set fort h above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. Publish: April 2, 2018 251809 3565552 Needa newJob?

PENSACOLA, Fla. „ The young girl sat across from the little doggie Buster and read to him. Every few seconds, you would hear a Woof Woof.Ž Not from laid-back Buster „ an 11-year-old Bichon Frise. But from 10-year-old Chancey Cogley. Woof Woof,Ž she said, reading from the childrens book Biscuit Takes a Walk.Ž Its Grandpa.Ž Then, she continued with the short story of the “ctional dog Biscuit taking a walk with “ctional grandpa. Just a few minutes earlier, Chancey was reading another story to a 2-year-old basset hound named Poppy on Saturday at the Tryon Branch Library, part of the West Florida Public Libraries system. Chancey has read to the dogs many times before, as shes practically grown up participating in the Pet Partners Read With MeŽ literary program, which allows children to read to therapy dogs. This program has been part of her life since she was six months old,Ž said her father, Casey Cogley. She grew up with this program.Ž Pet Partners is an international organization that strives to improve the health and well-being of people by allowing them to bond with animals. The group uses animals „ mostly dogs „ to help people in nursing homes, schools, veterans groups and others to form that dog-human bond. The group has been visiting area libraries since 2008 and brings therapy dogs „ usually two at a time „ to the Tryon Branch Library on the third Saturday of each month, and at the Southwest Branch Library on the fourth Saturday of each month. Times are 10 a.m. to noon. All dogs are with their owners/handlers and are on a leash. Pet Partners animals and their human volunteers undergo speci“c training before being sent out into the “eld. Library employee Michelle Cogley is Chanceys mother and is program organizer „ one reason her daughter has been reading to dogs for most of her life. Cogley said anywhere from a half-dozen to 20 or so children „ with parents and guardians, of course „ show up for each Pet Partners session. Ive seen kids come in afraid of dogs,Ž she said, recounting the story of one boy who made monthly visits with his cousin. When he “rst came, he wouldnt even come in the door.Ž It took the boy six months to get comfortable enough where he would sit next to his cousin during the reading sessions. Soon, the boy was reading to the dog. A month later, he even touched the dog,Ž Cogley said. Little Gracie Kennedy, 6, sat down on the soft mat next to Buster to read him the childrens story One is EnoughŽ „ about being an only child. (Gracie is not.) The dog was ”opped on his side, belly exposed, being rubbed by his human companion Brenda Rudolph, a Pet Partner volunteer. After she read the story, Gracie rubbed the mellow dogs belly too.

Nearly 40 NCAA Womens Lacrosse teams traveled to Charlotte County, Florida recently to take part in the 22nd Annual SpringFlingŽ. The event, directed by Gene and Katharine DeLorenzo of Middlebury, Vermont, has hosted over 400 teams and 16,000 female athletes. SpringFling first played in Bay County, Florida in 1997 using a makeshift PA system and run down score board. The event has come a long way since its debut. Using the support of the Charlotte Harbor Tourism Bureau and warm welcoming from the community, the NCAA teams played on fields at Ann Dever Park, Ross Park, and Carmilita Park. Charlotte, Lemon Bay, and Port Charlotte High Schools also hosted several games. The Colleges and Universities use spring break as an opportunity to bond and practice their physical and fast paced sport in the sun. This is the second year in a row that Charlotte County has hosted the event. St. Lawrence University and Wesleyan University are two of the original teams in the event with St. Lawrence only missing SpringFling once.Charlotte plays host to 22nd SpringFlingBy CHRIS BLAKESUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTOS BY CHRIS BLAKESt. Lawrences Tri-Captain Jacqueline Sovie (14) elds the ball while being chased by Wesleyans Emma Richards (4) during a game at Ann Dever Park.

OUR TOWN: TODAYS WOMAN MONDAY, APRIL 2, 2018 INSIDE: CLASSIFIEDS Dont be fooled by Natalie Lashways looks. Despite that petite frame, behind those doe eyes, underneath that calm, businesslike demeanor, is a lioness waiting to pounce. Thats a good ting for her clients at the Farr Law Firm in Punta Gorda, where she has practiced family law since being recruited there from the University of Florida Law School in 2009. She is also a wife and the mother of a baby daughter, Brynn, who is not quite 2 and a lady-in-waiting to the throne of Punta Gorda princess. Punta Gordas pocket dynamo has always been fueled by the “re inside. Today, much of it is reserved for the court room. But back in the day, it was most readily seen on the football “eld, where she was a 5-foot-2, 100-pound cornerback who would have invited hard contact had she not been playing high school ”ag football. I was a little thing, but I was actually quite aggressive,Ž she laughed. One of favorite things to do was pull the ”ags, and then make them go “ve, six feet behind me, so that way they had to go running after their ”ags.Ž A statement-maker even then. She enjoys that, although Punta Gordas pocket dynamoBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT LeanneELYCOLUMNISTTodays focus is on oranges. Oranges are inexpensive and delicious! Besides enjoying them as a snack, I love to use orange sections in salads or with Asian inspired dishes. Oranges are bursting at the seams with vitamin C, ”avonoids, “ber, potassium and pectin. Heres a tip: The concentration of vitamin C is in the pulp, people. Make sure you eat the pulp and buy orange juice that has lots of pulp. Heres a trick: Those little cans of mandarin oranges are great for keeping on your pantry shelf for a quick lift to your salad „ try adding it along with slivered almonds, green onions and sesame oil and rice vinegar for a delicious, off the hook salad. Yum! And your recipe (from Dinner Answers): Leanne Ely is a NYT bestselling author and the creator of SavingDinner.com, the original menu planning website, bringing families back to the dinner table for over 15 years.Juice up on your vitamin C Name: Kim Maddy Q: Degrees: A: None Q: Occupation: A: Assistant Vice President/ Branch Manager of Charlotte State Bank & Trust Q: How many years in Charlotte / Sarasota County: A: Sarasota County: 17 years Q: Hobbies: A: Attending and Serving at church. Watching Indianapolis Colts football with my family. Q: What do you like best about your job: A: There are so many reasons that I like my job, such as, meeting wonderful people who live in our area and assist them in their banking needs. I work alongside fellow coworkers who are passionate about donating their time, treasures and talents to our great community which keeps me inspired to do the same. Q: Whats the funniest thing you ever did on the job: A: I had one of my Personal Bankers water break while working with me and I had to drive her to the local hospital where she delivered a beautiful baby girl the next day. That was NOT in my job description, LOL. Q: What is the greatest lesson you have learned? A: Always stay humble and kind, the world is in need of this. You never know what the other person is dealing with and the power is yours to leave them better than they were before you helped them. Q: What other interesting or unusual jobs have you had? A: My husband was a part time pig farmer for the “rst few years of our marriage. Needless to say he got me to be a hands-on assistant with the pigs every need. Adorable as babies but they get huge and boy do they smell! I have never looked at ham the same. :) Q: What is one important trait every leader should have? A: God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason. Listen, not to respond but to truly hear what is being said to you for clear understanding. Q: Have you had a personal or business mentor? A : I was blessed to have a few supervisors here at the bank that were true mentors more than supervisors They made it a priority to always be there for me and supported my growth in the company. Q: How do you de“ne success? A. Speaking for myself, success is being happy and con“dent with the journey. There are twists, turns, bumps and bruises along the way but that is how your become the truest version of yourself. Q: Something no one knows about you: A: One day, I hope to attend Bible College.

She was 11 when her parents divorced. The family was living in Upstate New York at the time. Her mother moved her and her brother to Jupiter, Fla. When Lashway looks back, she cannot see a time when she did not want to become a lawyer. Its something I always wanted to do,Ž she said. I was in high school when I made the decision that I wanted to come a lawyer. Even at that point, I knew I wanted to do family law. I think I was inspired by my parents divorce and thinking that I could help people who are going through that trying time „ and the kids who are involved. At times, I do “nd my background is helpful for me in keeping the kids in mind „ what they must be going through.Ž She has achieved some success in her practice. She was named to the list of Rising Stars in Florida Super Lawyers magazine from 2013 to 2017. A lot of people know her as the woman in picture of the Farr Law Firm ad that graced the Town Center Mall for years. As a new mother, she is intent on achieving success in that role. Being a mom makes me try to become a better person overall,Ž Lashway said. I want to be the best mom I can be for her. I try to be as good for her as I can.Ž If Facebook offers evidence, shes doing just “ne. Lashway and her husband, Ryan, a nurse anesthetist by trade and a ballplayer by calling, have been married since 2012. They travel extensively. Lashway is a member of the C.A.R.E. board, a member of Leadership Charlotte 2013 „ a red team survivor „ and involved in a number of other community activities. If there is one thing she brings to the community, her family, and her practice, it is desire.

The Sun /Monday, April 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 17 Look for a third crossword in The News Wire section. OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN 3 Yolanda Woody has supported charitable causes since her childhood in Sarasota, but now the 21-year-old USF Sarasota-Manatee student is expanding her interests and organizing a series of discussions around human rights. Entitled the 2018 GloBull Showcase,Ž the lecture series will resemble TED TalksŽ with academics and local and state experts weighing in on such topics as climate change, world hunger, homelessness, discrimination, refugee and migration issues, income inequality and human traf“cking, among others. The series is set for mid-April at the USFSM campus, 8350 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Woody says each presentation will last about 20 minutes with opportunities for audience members to respond with questions and comments. The discussions will be targeted toward students and faculty from the USF Systems three campuses, but the events will be open to the public as well. The talks are free. An interdisciplinary social sciences student, Woody says she has volunteered at local non-pro“ts for years and now aspires to work as a human rights attorney. I enjoy being involved with initiatives that hopefully create a solution or put a stop to issues we face across our planet,Ž Woody, a junior, said. Through this showcase, I want to bring hope and awareness to people about important global issues and inspire our student body to become more globally conscious and open-minded about different cultures.Ž Shell have plenty of support in doing so. The showcase kicks off April 9 with a long list of speakers, including USF professors, discussing global sustainability and climate change. All of the sessions run from noon to 2 p.m. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Heres a listing of the events: Monday, April 9 „ Climate Issues and Global Sustainability (SMC A320) Thursday, April 12 -„ Traf“cking and Modern Day Slavery (SMC-229) Monday, April 16 „ Global Prosperity, Happiness, and Well-being (SMC A320) Dr. Jody McBrien, an associate professor of literacies education and one of the advisors to the student-run Global Society, is one of the events participants. Dr. McBrien, who came to USFSM 13 years ago, has focused much of her academic research on women and children in war-torn areas. Globalization is increasingly affecting all aspects of our lives, and I am excited to work with students who are engaging in its challenges and opportunities,Ž she said. I am so proud of Yolandas leadership and of the Global Societys of“cers in promoting this and other global events on campus.Ž Each day of the talks is dedicated to different global issues, such as poverty, climate change, human traf“cking and others that affect peoples lives on a daily basis. The discussions conclude April 16 with the main Globull Showcase event taking place on April 17, featuring the Salinas Family Aztec Dancers, appearances by local charitable organizations and the Taste of the World food festival. The Multicultural Affairs Committee (MAC) will sponsor the festival and the Global Society will sponsor the remaining events. Woody spent two months organizing the showcase and received support from MAC, the Global Engagement Of“ce and fellow members of the Global Society, which is dedicated to promoting awareness of international cultures. When I started working on this event I had a vision of how I wanted it to play out,Ž she said. I wanted the GloBull Showcase to be an event where students come out and are made aware of different issues and cultures while also having fun mingling with their peers and faculty. The advisors and members of the Global Society have been extremely helpful in assisting with the planning and details of this event. Overall, I hope the showcase empowers people to serve and speak up about issues and do something about them.Ž To attend any of the GloBull Showcase talks, register at eventbrite. com/e/globullshowcase-lecture-seriestickets-44191611299. Registration is free. For more information about the event, contact Woody at yolandawoody@ sar.usf.edu.USFSM student organizes conference on GloBull issuesProvided by RICH SHOPESUSF SARASOTA-MANATEE Katie Ledecky is turning pro. The “ve-time Olympic swimming gold medalist gave up her “nal two years of eligibility at Stanford, allowing her to concentrate on training for the 2020 Olympics while cashing in on sponsorship and endorsement deals that wouldnt have been available to her as a college athlete. Other than the “nancial windfall, Ledecky isnt planning any big changes. She will continue training on the West Coast under coach Greg Meehan while working toward her degree at Stanford, where shes been focused on psychology and political science. Its something I couldve done in two years once I completed my eligibility, but this gives me some time before 2020 to really focus in on getting all the pieces in place so I can really train hard and focus on my training leading up to 2020,Ž Ledecky said at the Washington Press Club, where she made the announcement Monday while home on spring break. Meehan said the two discussed Ledeckys pro aspirations casually during the recruiting process, but got more speci“c back in September.  At that time, they decided she should make the transition after the NCAA championships, which were held two weekends ago at Ohio State. The 21-year-old Ledecky captured “ve NCAA individual titles while helping the Stanford women win two straight national championships, the schools “rst back-toback titles since taking “ve straight from 1992-96. At this year championships, she won her second straight title in the 1,650yard free by lapping the “eld and “nishing nearly 30 seconds ahead of the runner-up. A lot of people think of swimming as an individual sport. It really can be a team sport,Ž she said. Meehan said turning pro should help Ledecky be in peak condition for the next Olympics. College meets use 25-yard courses, while most major international competitions are conducted in 50-meter pools. It simpli“es her schedule,Ž Meehan said. Less travel and fewer short-course meets allow for bigger blocks of training and more long-course racing.Ž As a college athlete, of course, Ledecky wasnt allowed to sign with sponsors or take endorsement deals that provide the bulk of the income for top swimmers. That would have cost her potentially millions of dollars ahead of next years world championships in South Korea and the 2020 Tokyo Games, where she is again expected to be one of the biggest stars. Ledecky won four golds and a relay silver at the 2016 Rio Olympics. She currently holds world records in three freestyle events covering 400, 800 and 1,500-meters. Last summer, Ledecky competed in six events at the world championships in Budapest, Hungary „ winning “ve golds and a silver „ and she will likely try to duplicate that grueling schedule in Tokyo now that the 1,500 free has been added to the Olympic program as a womens event. Ledecky is following a similar path to the one taken by Missy Franklin, who starred at the 2012 Olympic but put off her professional career to swim collegiately at California-Berkeley for two years. After turning pro in 2015, Franklin moved back to Colorado to train but struggled to regain the form she showed in London. She quali“ed in only two individual events at the Rio Games and failed to make the “nal in either one. Franklin later expressed regret about leaving the college environment, saying she felt lonely and isolated at home since many of her high school friends had moved away. There was nothing to do but just train and swim,Ž Franklin told the AP last summer while re”ecting on what went wrong in Rio. That became my whole life. I had to get to a place where I could “nd balance again.ŽOlympic and Stanford swim star Katie Ledecky turning proBy PAUL NEWBERRYAP SPORTS WRITER AP FILE PHOTOIIn this Aug. 9, 2016, le photo, United States Katie Ledecky shows o her gold medal for the womens 200-meter freestyle nal.

No Australians were shot. Anyone driving along U.S. 41 in Port Charlotte will see more gun stores than McDonalds. America and its many gun stores must in some way be connected to the tens of thousands of deaths from gun violence. It cant be a ”uke. Arms in other nations are used to embrace their fellow citizens. Arms in America are used to kill loved ones just as much as they are to hug them. How can this ever be acceptable? Drugs kill our children and we arrest the dealers and yet gun stores dealing in guns are everywhere. What does this say about our values? Our children are drawing attention to our inaction by marching and demanding a change. Why are they so wholesome in contrast to our generation that has allowed carnage in our communities? Why are we so lacking in courage to do something about it? Some blame the NRA but it is our generation that has caused our children to be afraid of gun violence. Let us redeem ourselves by voting for politicians that represent their values. Lets not make them wait till they themselves can vote our politicians out.Douglas Kennedy Punta GordaEditor: I wanted to thank Kevin and Max Doyle and their beautiful wives. The St. Patricks Day event they have created has been a boom for all of Punta Gorda. The thousands of people they draw for their event is great for all the downtown businesses and the Punta Gorda community. We all look forward to the many improvements and the years to come of the Celtic Ray. Thank you for all you do.Chris Evans Punta GordaEditor: On March 14 you published a piece in the Our ViewŽ section of your paper. It was written by the Buffalo News Editorial Board about the importance of a strong and vigilant press. I have no quarrels with that assertion. I think, when it works properly, the press is able to provide the people with information that would otherwise not be available. To do thorough investigation of an issue takes resources that papers no longer enjoy. They are short staffed. Only the very large papers have the ability to afford to have a reporter spend weeks or even months on a story. The article mentioned the dif“culty of accessing documents. Most people dont realize that you have freedom of information only if you are willing to pay for it. The details that could disclose the truth are often things like email exchanges, inner of“ce memos, phone records. To get those takes a lot of time and money. When it comes to TV journalism, ratings, viewership and sponsors drive any news that is aired. The American people are not con“dent anymore about the information presented to them. The press would do well to appreciate why that situation exists. How it can be corrected is another matter. The confrontational stance by the President is understandable. Put yourself in his shoes and look at the sort of press coverage he has received. Look at the coverage of Parkland students but not who funds them while NRA donations are written about.Victoria Vaughn EnglewoodEditor: I want to relay an experience my husband and I had recently as we left a local movie theater. In the lobby were a variety of arcade games (most involving shooting of some kind) with which folks could entertain themselves. On one particular game, I noticed a young boy about six or seven years of age holding an imitation automatic ri”e and shooting at “gures on the screen. An adult stood by and encouraged his success. I was appalled and angry. Considering all that we have experienced lately, how could anyone justify this? More importantly, establishments providing these games need to seriously consider what they are providing, take a stand and have them removed. There is a common sense and moral responsibility for both adults and businesses here. I will personally speak with the manager of this theater. I challenge others to do the same wherever they see these games present.Nan Qurollo Punta GordaEditor: To my friend in North Port on the ACA: Memories are Editor: It was a glorious Southwest Florida day straight from central casting. A day for history to be made, and it was. Our school kids, our future, were in the vanguard of a history making change, and I wanted to be a part of that history. We were told that about 1,100 people of all ages, led by students, were at Gilchrist Park last Saturday, walking the bridge and participating in their March for our Lives.Ž As a result of the Parkland School massacre, 17 lives of meaning and potential were lost forever, not just to their families, but to our nation as well. We witnessed with pride our passionate and incredibly articulate young people demand action for sensible gun reforms from our apparently moribund, tone deaf lawmakers. These young masters of social media easily managed to organize a nationwide day of protest marches with a simple message of, Enough is Enough.Ž They were awe-inspiring, and I am proud to have been a witness to these change makers.Sushila Cherian Punta GordaEditor: The Punta Gorda Airport is and should continue to be a dominant economic force in Charlotte County. The vision for the future and understanding of the past and current challenges Buddy Hughes: North Porter, one of a kindOUR POSITION: This 90-yearold has made her presence felt in North Port.It would be hard to “nd a North Port resident more dedicated to the city of North Port than Althea BuddyŽ Hughes. The “rst time we dropped by her home the diminutive woman was in her yard pulling weeds. We were less con“dent we would “nd her on our second visit some weeks later, but the bird feeders in the bushes near her front window were full. Buddy arrived here with her late partner, Olympia Guenn, 35 years ago, when North Port was largely a scattering of homes near U.S. 41. Buddy and Olympia had been offered a free trip from Brooklyn, N.Y., to North Port. It paid off. They bought a General Development Corp. home along the Cocoplum Canal. She soon became a “xture in community affairs. The white-haired, 90-year-old „ a former city commissioner who is battling cancer „ still attends City Commission meetings and usually speaks during every available public comment session, sometimes three or four times during a meeting. Each time at the lectern, she gives her name and address, although everyone knows who she is. Badly treated by commissioners years ago, she now sits in the second row of the audience at meetings. Her comments often add levity to sessions. Her advice is wide-ranging. Poorly kept yards get her attention; pot holes make her list. Once, after someone stole her computer a few years ago, she used a number of public comment opportunities to alert the community and ask for it back. She also identi“es issues that require attention. For instance, in 2009 Buddy urged city commissioners to contact Sarasota County school of“cials and ask them to build a technical school in North Port. Nine years later, that dream is coming true. On her 90th birthday in May 2017, the city honored her with a cake, a key to the city and a proclamation. Now, as her health has failed, Buddy has given away closets full of clothing. She has a hard time keeping up her yard. But she remains energetic and more upbeat than one would expect, acknowledging she hopes to spend her “nal days at home. She still has a sparkle her eyes and talks non-stop about politics. (A Republican, she has no time for Donald Trump, who is too crude and too much of a braggart for her taste.) She lost her license, so friends must give her rides. North Ports retiring police chief has driven her home after commission meetings. When her large dog died, ex-Fire Chief Bill Taaffe drove to her home to bury it. (Now, a tiny pup shares her couch.) At least two commissioners, Jill Luke and Debbie McDowell, often drop by. Each morning, a police department volunteer calls to be sure she has made it through the night. (That free service is available to all city residents.) Many are praying she will continue attending commission meetings for months to come. Her dream is to reach the age of 91, but she doubts she will make it. Without Buddy the meetings just wont be the same. Our hope is the city will dedicate a public space in her honor: a street, perhaps, or Pine Park. The Buddy Hughes ball “eld would be appropriate. Baseball is how she got her nickname: As a youngster she was so skilled at hitting a baseball the guys always chose their buddyŽ “rst. Whatever the choice, we urge the commission to do it now, while she is still around. way too short. You referenced the eig ht years with Obama and how you still suffer from the effects of his years. Do you remember how Obama fought very hard for a single-payer plan? Do you remember that Republicans blocked this plan? How everybody would have had a Medicare-type plan? Why did Republicans and for-pro“t insurance companies hate this? The prices charged by Medicare are negotiated, thats why. Drug prices and fees, tests and care would have been regulated. In other words, the issues you complain about would not be issues as costs would have been controlled. Why are drug prices so high now? The Republicans in Congress made it illegal for Medicare to negotiate drug costs. The VA does negotiate drug prices and their costs are greatly reduced compared to what we pay. Based on your letter, you support Trump, making you a GOP member. It is your party that is at fault for your high drug costs yet you have invented a way to blame the other side. As far as eight years of Trump, it is my hope Americans are saved from him and we will not see four. Your side blocked what Obama wanted the ACA to be and then refused to tweak the bill to make it work better. Be careful what you ask for. You might get it.Carl E. Carter Arcadiaand successes is important. Having a good sense of business is extremely important as well. The airport brings jobs, prosperity and increased property values to our local citizens. A thriving airport will bring increased business to our community, as well as more convenient travel for our residents. It is imperative to have members on the Airport Authority with requisite business experience, education and foresight to recognize the full bene“ts of a thriving airport. We need representatives that will seek to move Charlotte County forward, not keep the status quo. Julie Price offers this fresh perspective. Ms. Price brings a business perspective, with her years as a local businesswoman with a masters of business administration and a doctorate in spinal physical therapy. Ms. Price offers a community mindset, always considering input and new ideas from citizens. Julie Price is right for the Airport Authority, and right for Charlotte County. Keep the airport moving forward. Vote for Julie Price for Charlotte County Airport Authority. Danny Nix, Jr. Punta Gorda 4

TurntotheViewpointpage forletterguidelines andother information. Maybe we should just skip to the end. Is that sacrilege? Is it too cynical by half? After all, this is the part where were supposed to be waiting for answers and pretending to believe justice might be done. But if youve seen a movie a hundred times, it is dif“cult not to mouth the dialogue ahead of time. Similarly, it is pretty hard not to have a strong sense of where this latest police shooting of an unarmed black man is, barring the unexpected, likely heading. The district attorney will decline to seek an indictment. Or the grand jury will refuse to hand one down. Or the case will go to trial and a jury will purport to sift through the evidence, and then return an acquittal. And the family of Stephon Clark, killed in a volley of 20 gunshots by two Sacramento police of“cers while standing in his own backyard armed with nothing more menacing than a smartphone, will be asked to stand before a microphone, put aside their grief and betrayal and save the citys collective backside. They will face a restive crowd, every person in it thinking how easily Stephon could have been Tony, could have been Ted, could have been Tanya, could have been me, and they will plead for calm. Maybe theyll get it and the California capital will sleep in peace. Or maybe they wont, and the city will burn. If thats pessimistic, it is a pessimism well earned. In the movies, James Bond has a license to kill. In America, police have what amounts to the same thing. Yes, thats a hard judgment likely to jolt and offend many observers, legions of good and conscientious cops among them. But can it really be argued? After Philando, after Tamir, after John, after Sean, after Eric, after Michael, after Darrius, after Sam, after Freddie, after Alton, after Terence, after Amadou, how can anyone really dispute the point? It is understandable that jurors and police of“cials are loath to second-guess an of“cer who, in less than the time it takes to blink, makes a bad decision in good faith. But once that willingness to accord the bene“t of the doubt when sometimes warranted hardens into a re”exive refusal to hold accountable any of“cer in any circumstance ever, it becomes very hard to trust justice. Consider that jurors in North Carolina saw video of Charleston police of“cer Michael Slager pumping bullets into the back of Walter Scott, who was running away, yet still could not bring themselves to convict him. Slager ended up accepting a plea deal to avoid retrial. If youre AfricanAmerican, what is that supposed to make you think? You come to regard justice as a fairy tale for the very naive. You conclude that black lives actually dont matter. Not to, or in, America. But then, Caroline Smalls life didnt matter much, either, and she was white. The unarmed mother of two was executed by two of“cers in 2010 in a small town in Georgia. An investigation found that police tampered with the crime scene and manufactured misleading evidence, yet her killers never stood trial. It calls to mind a truth Martin Luther King once spoke: Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.Ž So a nation that routinely excuses police killings of unarmed black people is a nation where all of us are ultimately at risk. Unfortunately, America has never quite comprehended that truth, nor really wanted to. So the ritual of yet another black mans useless death plays itself out in speeches, promises, recriminations. And many of us just watch and wait and pretend to believe. But it gets harder every time. Weve seen this movie too often. And we know every line by heart. Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him via email at lpitts@miamiherald.com.Should we pretend justice will happen this time? Leonard Pitts One of the great values of a free press in our nation is the Letters to the EditorŽ section that appears in many newspapers. The Sun is one of those newspapers that prints virtually every letter, from every point of view, even those that disagree with the editors personal philosophies. I applaud the Suns editors. We should expect all of our newspapers to follow the same path. This is a way for a diverse group of citizens to get their opinions out into the public arena. Over the past 17 years, I have seen letters that re”ect all points of view on any and every issue. Of course, some letters are not only inarticulate, but some also present falsehoods as facts. The proper response is for another letter writer to present accurate information to counteract such false statements. The Sun staff and their reporters do not have the time to fact check every letter, but our citizens do have that ability, and should do so if they have the facts. The folks who oppose any development, such as the proposed Sunseeker Resort, or changes in building height in Punta Gorda need to have others who are in favor of these changes articulate their points of view, as well. We all have access to the letters page. Let us exercise this freedom while we can. Recently, a number of local letter writers have argued for the banning of so-called assault weapons.Ž The problem here is the definition of an assaultŽ weapon. Is it your grandfathers M1 carbine that was used in World War II and Korea, which was manufactured in the 1940s, because it uses a 15-round magazine? Is it the World War II M1 Garand? Is it the M1A, the semiautomatic version of the M14, which was used in Vietnam, because it uses a 20-round magazine? Is it your brothers 22 rim-fire rifle that can hold a magazine of over 15 rounds? Is it almost every modern semi automatic pistol which may hold 17 rounds of ammunition in a magazine? The military de“nes assault weapons as those that have the capacity of fully automatic “ring action via a selector switch. The AR-15 is a semi-automatic weapon, i.e. one shot for each pull of the trigger. Fully automatic weapons have been legally controlled since 1934. Do we really think that criminals, terrorists, or gang members will obey any laws we pass? We need to be very careful in proposing laws that would eliminate some of our constitutional freedoms. Today, it may be the Second Amendment, tomorrow it might be the First Amendment. Certainly, we all wish to make our local schools safe for our children and our grandchildren. I know that our School Board, our school administrators, and our law enforcement community are all on the same page. We just need to make sure that all of the actions we take, are not violating the rights that so many Americans died to preserve. Harvey Goldstein of Deep Creek is a retired Massachusetts professor of political science, past Massachusetts school board member and former New York City public school teacher.Expressing freedoms in letters, gun ownership Harvey Goldstein Cheating isnt winning. We try to teach this to our children, but politics provides the opposite lesson. Political cheating allows those who engage in it to amass far more power than they have a right to in a constitutional democracy. Its most sophisticated form isnt ballot-box stuf“ng but the use of indirect means by those in authority to perpetuate themselves in of“ce. Within 48 hours, Americans were offered two fast courses in the politics of cheating. Late Monday, the Trump administration „ acting against the advice of six previous Census Bureau directors, Republicans and Democrats alike „ moved to add to the 2020 census a query about a respondents citizenship status. And on Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard a case that turns on whether Marylands gerrymandered district boundaries deprive Republicans of fair representation in Congress. In both cases, the courts should act to defend our republican democracy. On the census controversy, Congress could also provide a remedy. But most Republicans are likely to be quite happy with the distortions that the citizenship question could introduce into our decennial head count. Theres a reason why the formal census has not asked about citizenship since 1950, and why it is an especially bad idea to reintroduce it now. Response rates to the census in lower-income neighborhoods have long been a challenge, and immigrants in the country illegally have worried that answering the questionnaire could endanger their status, despite legal guarantees of con“dentiality. Even legal immigrants have shared these worries. Such concerns have increased exponentially with President Trump targeting undocumented immigrants with a proud and public ferocity. The undercounting of immigrants would create a twofold injustice. It would tilt representation at all levels of government away from places with large populations of Latinos and other immigrants (often Metropolitan and Democratic-leaning) and overrepresent white, rural regions and states. And it would shortchange undercounted areas when it comes to federal funds, since many programs operate on formulas based on the census. In the Trump era, there is an irony here since one legitimate concern in locales with high levels of recent immigration is that their public services are often strained. Cutting money from such jurisdictions only increases the burdens on local taxpayers, native born and immigrant. The maneuver is all the more problematic because Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross chose to include the request for information on citizenship in the face of objections from career Census Bureau of“cials. The lateness of his decision means the citizenship question will not be subjected to the Bureaus usual extensive testing for the effect of new inquiries on the accuracy of the overall count. This is one key contention of the lawsuit from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who said Ross decision was arbitrary and capricious.Ž Hes right. California is one of at least 12 states trying to block the move. And political cheating at its purest and most obvious is gerrymandering, drawing district lines to maximize your partys representation in legislative bodies and minimize the number of seats your opponents can win. Because so many of the state legislatures that drew district lines after the 2010 Census were controlled by Republicans, an end to gerrymandering now would be especially challenging to the GOP. So opposing gerrymandering has come to be seen as a partisan, Democratic issue. But its not. The addition of the Maryland case to a docket that already includes a challenge to an outlandish GOP gerrymander in Wisconsin is a reminder that both parties can suffer from this practice. In Maryland, a formerly Republican district based in the rural and western parts of the state was chopped up, its pieces redistributed in a way that reduced the GOP to only one seat in the states eight-member House delegation. Linking Maryland and Wisconsin could allow the Supreme Court to rule against gerrymandering nationwide in a thoroughly non-partisan way. And the Wisconsin litigants provided an objective formula for judging when district lines are plainly unfair. Justice Stephen Breyers suggestion Wednesday that the court kick the matter into a later term is worth pursuing only if it could lead to a comprehensive ruling against gerrymandering. Attacks on judicial activism are a staple on the right. The increasingly aggressive activism of conservative judges has made this a live concern on the left as well. But when elected of“cials use their power to make it ever harder for their opponents to win elections „ exactly whats happening with the census and gerrymandering „ the courts have an obligation to serve as democracys last line of defense.

Active ingredient imp roves eyesight in as little as 10 d ays. Helps support macular density and a healthy retina.THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE FDA. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE, OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS MAY VARY. By Patrick Kennedy Health Correspondent CAMBRIDGE, MA „ Exciting new studies from Harvard Medical School are creating a surge in demand for the new vision formula called ClearSight Advanced We knew we had a successful formula with an outstanding track record, but we never expected this much demand,Ž said Jonathan Sinclair, President of New Life Nutraceuticals „ the makers of this new vision-restoring breakthrough. With such strong clinical evidence behind ClearSight Advanced its easy to see why the public is so eager to get this new vision-restoring formula. To begin with, results from the Harvard Medical School study are impressive. A remarkable 87% of patients taking the active ingredient in ClearSight Advanced report visual improvements in as little as three months „ with many patients seeing initial results in as little as 10 days. The results were so encouraging, the lead researcher of the Harvard team, Dr. Max Snodderly concluded, Perhaps the gradual loss of vision in many older people is not an inevitable consequence of the aging process...Ž Why So Much Excitement?Scientists from the Schepens Eye Research Institute, af“liated with Harvard Medical School, discovered an amazing nutrient that restores and prevents damage to the macula. The macula is the center part of your retina and is responsible for 20/20 vision. Age-related damage to the macula, called macular degeneration, is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting more than 10 million Americans „ more than cataracts and glaucoma combined! This nutrient is not a drug. Its the active ingredient in ClearSight Advanced Clinical studies show it supports the macula by increasing macular pigment density.Ž Many patients see improvements to their night vision, allowing them to keep their drivers license. Many are able to see sharper lines and brighter colors. Some report they no longer need glasses, or can at least weaken their prescriptions. And many more avoid further loss of their eyesight. My close up and distance vision has improved with the use of ClearSight Advanced ,Ž says Scott Fisher of West Palm Beach, FL. I can see more clearly than I had previously and I dont struggle to read the small fonts on my iPhone.Ž Impressive Clinical Results Published in the worlds top medical journals like the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), and Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, the Harvard results are stunning. The results show ClearSight Advanced helps aging seniors with these troubling symptoms: € Near-sightedness € Far-sightedness € Astigmatism € Blind spots € Distortions € Blurry vision € Double vision € Spots and ”oaters € Trouble reading € Faded colors € Poor night vision € Eye fatigue € Cloudy lenses € Dif“culty adjusting to darkness There is no miracle cure for vision loss and no substitute for quali“ed medical advice, but the impressive results provide much needed hope for seniors struggling with failing eyesight. But with such a dramatic improvement in vision and quality of life, its easy to see why thousands of callers are jamming phone lines trying to secure their supply of ClearSight Advanced .How It WorksThe active ingredient in ClearSight Advanced is a carotenoid, or natural pigment, called lutein. The macula is made from this vital nutrient, so its required for 20/20 vision. This breakthrough discovery was con“rmed when Dr. Snodderly measured the macular pigment density,Ž or thicknessŽ of the macula in volunteers as young as 24 and as old as 84. The Harvard study found that people age 60 and over with higher macula pigment density had eyesight that was just as sharp as the volunteers who were still in their 20s! Taken together, the evidence suggests that macular pigment may protect against retinal disease by reducing damage that occurs as we age,Ž Dr. Snodderly said. What Other Doctors are SayingFor doctors like Dr. Adam Cohen, of Boca Raton, Florida, ClearSight Advanced is the only safe, affordable, and reliable way to restore failing eyesight. I have patients in their 80s who can still drive at night without a problem. Others who used to complain about seeing a halo effect or other distortions can now read, drive, or watch TV without any trouble,Ž Dr. Cohen said. The nutrients in ClearSight Advanced help your eyes in other ways, too. They help protect against cataracts, glaucoma, and blind spots... its good for more than just reading an eye chart.ŽHow To Get ClearSight Advanced This is the of“cial nationwide release of ClearSight Advanced in the United States. And so, the company is offering a special discount supply to anyone who calls within the next 48 hours. An Order Hotline has been set up for local readers to call. This gives everyone an equal chance to try ClearSight Advanced Starting at 7:00 AM today, the discount offer will be available for 48 hours. All you have to do is call TOLL FREE 1-800-304-9560 right now. Then, provide the operator with the special discount approval code: CS125. The company will do the rest. Important: Due to ClearSight Advanced recent media exposure, phone lines are often busy. If you call and do not immediately get through, please be patient and call back.VISION-RESTORING SENSATION: Top doctors are now recommending new ClearSight Advanced because it restores youthful eyesight without glasses, contacts or laser surgery. adno=50533173AdvertisementAdvertisementAdvertisement

BUYAHOME! BUYACAR! One spring/summer plant pest that really bugs me is the leaf-footed bug. Just as its name implies, the back legs of this insect have leaf-like projections easily seen by the naked eye. The leaf-footed bug attacks many types of plants and is a general nuisance in the garden. There are nine species of leaf-footed bugs in Florida. This insect is a type of stink bug which will be very evident if you get your hands on one. This is a defense action that keeps predators (and people) at bay. As a member of the Hemiptera, they have straw-like piecing/ sucking mouthparts which are inserted into a plant to suck juices. The adult leaf-footed bug is about three-quarters of an inch in length, has an elongated body with a triangular thorax, and is brownish in color. Some have a light-colored marking across the mid-section. The young (nymphs) look just like the adults, but are smaller, have no wings, and are orange to light brown in color. You may even be able to detect the tiny eggs which are golden brown and are conspicuously placed end-to-end in a single row on leaves. Interestingly enough, the main host plant of this critter is the thistle. Unfortunately, they have found other plant types, including citrus, pecans, beans, peppers, lychee, okra, tomatoes, crape myrtles, roses, ixora, and hibiscus, equally inviting. Not only does the piecing/ sucking mouthpart cause damage to the plant, but it can also trigger fruit drop and rots to develop. While you may see just one or two leaf-footed bugs, they often have the habit of gathering in larger groups. I have had the most problems with this insect on cherry tomatoes and southern peas. Adult leaf-footed bugs can ”y and leave the premises pretty fast when encountered. I have had success in actually hand-picking them to reduce numbers and suppress this pest. I hand-pick as soon as I “rst detect them, thus preventing a build-up of the population. Again, they are very nimble, and of course will release their stinkŽ when handled, but at least you know they are gone! Monitor regularly and remove any new arrivals as needed „ you will get used to it! The leaf-footed bug has a unique appearance and can be a nuisance in the garden. Recognition is important as there are many types of stinkbugs including bene“cial types that actually feed on pest insects „ you dont want to kill those!

AP PHOTOSVatican Swiss Guards stand at attention in front of St. Peters Basilica at the Vatican prior to the arrival of Pope Francis to celebrate an Easter mass, Sunday.VATICAN CITY „ On Christianitys most joyful day, Pope Francis called for peace in a world marked by war and con”ict, beginning with the beloved and long-suffering land of SyriaŽ and extending to Israel, where 15 Palestinians were killed on the IsraeliGaza border two days before Easter Sunday. Francis re”ected on the power of Christianitys core belief „ that Jesus rose from the dead following cruci“xion „ in his formal Urbi et OrbiŽ Easter message delivered from the balcony of St. Peters Basilica to a packed square of some 80,000 faithful below. The pontiff said the message of the resurrection offers hope in a world marked by so many acts of injustice and violence,Ž including parts of Africa affected by hunger, endemic con”icts and terrorism.Ž It bears fruits of hope and dignity where there are deprivation and exclusion, hunger and unemployment; where there are migrants and refugees, so often rejected by todays culture of waste, and victims of the drug trade, human traf“cking and contemporary forms of slavery,Ž the pope said. Francis called for a swift endŽ to the seven years of carnage in Syria, demanding that aid be delivered to the war-torn countrys needy and calling for “tting conditions for the returned and the displaced.Ž The pope also urged reconciliation in Israel, a place experiencing in these days the wounds of ongoing con”ict that do not spare the defenseless.Ž His remarks followed the Friday deaths of Palestinian protesters who charged toward Gazas border with Israel, the areas deadliest violence in four years. Turning to Asia, Francis expressed Hope and dignity: Pope calls for peace in Easter messageASSOCIATED PRESSPALM BEACH, Fla. „ President Donald Trump declared Sunday that a deal to help DreamerŽ immigrants was NO MOREŽ and threatened to pull out of a free trade agreement with Mexico unless it does more to stop people from crossing into the U.S. He claimed theyre coming to take advantage of protections granted certain immigrants. NO MORE DACA DEAL!Ž Trump tweeted one hour after he started the day by wishing his followers a HAPPY EASTER!Ž He also said Mexico must stop the big drug and people ”ows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!Ž The U.S., Canada and Mexico are currently renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement at Trumps insistence. Trump says NAFTA is bad for the U.S. Mexico has got to help us at the border,Ž Trump told reporters before he attended Easter services at an Episcopal church near his Palm Beach, Florida, home, as he held his wife, Melanias, hand. If theyre not going to help us at the border, its a very sad thing between our two countries.Ž A lot of people are coming in because they want to take advantage of DACA,Ž he added. Former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to protect from BERLIN „ Chinas defunct Tiangong 1 space station hurtled toward Earth on Sunday and was expected to re-enter the atmosphere within hours. Most of the craft should burn up on re-entry, so scientists said it poses only a slight risk to people on the ground. The European Space Agency forecast that the station, whose name translates as Heavenly Palace,Ž will re-enter sometime between Sunday night and early Monday GMT. The Chinese space agency said it should happen during the course of Monday Beijing time. The Aerospace Corp. predicted Tiangong 1s re-entry would take place within 2 hours of either side of 0010 GMT Monday (8:10 p.m. Sunday EDT.) Based on the space stations orbit, it will come back to Earth somewhere 43 degrees north and 43 degrees south, a range covering most of the United States, China, Africa, southern Europe, Australia and South America. Out of range are Russia, Canada and northern Europe. Only about 10 percent of the bus-sized, 8.5-ton spacecraft will likely survive being burned up on re-entry, mainly its heavier components such as its engines.

I believe I know where youre going with this question, and I think you may be a little confused about my stance on this sort of thing. Theres nothing wrong with certain entities having access to your checking account. I use electronic bill pay for utilities, mutual fund contributions, and things like that all the time. The only time I warn people against giving electronic access to their bank accounts is when theyre dealing with collectors over a bad debt. The government „ even the IRS „ isnt known for coming in and randomly taking money out of peoples accounts. Collectors, on the other hand, do it all the time. Youre in a “ght when youre dealing with a debt collector. Its an adversarial relationship. As a rule, no one in that industry should ever be given electronic access to any of your accounts. There may be a few decent debt collection companies out there, but many of them will lie, cheat, and steal to get your money. I hope that clears things up, Ashley. „ DaveMany already knowDear Dave, How can I convince my fellow millennials that government isnt the solution to their problems? „ Josh Dear Josh, I think youre proceeding from a false assumption. Many millennials already understand its not the governments job to take care of everyone and provide everything. The problem, I think, is theres a group of people in every generation that wants someone else to take care of them. The only thing I can suggest is that you try to be kind to everyone. It does no good to have a political discussion with a political neophyte. If you have friends like this, perhaps you could suggest they work to control and improve the variables in their lives they can actually control and make better „ namely themselves. You cant control the variable of government, Josh. Its not going to come to your rescue. It never has. „ Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions.

Former Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, now working as a private attorney after recently “nishing 30 years in public of“ce, is to argue Tuesday to the Missouri Supreme Court that utility regulators he appointed wrongly rejected the power line while relying on an incorrect court ruling written by a judge whom Nixon also appointed. Should Nixon prevail in court, it could help clear a path for Houston-based Clean Line Energy Partners LLC to build a 780-mile, high-voltage transmission line from the wind farms of western Kansas across Missouri and Illinois to Indiana, where it would feed into a power grid serving eastern states. Missouri had been the lone state blocking the project, until an Illinois appeals court in March also overturned that states approval. I think its a great opportunity for our state and an important one policy-wiseŽ for the nation, Nixon said in an interview with The Associated Press. The power line, known as the Grain Belt Express, has come to symbolize one of the largest challenges for renewable energy developers in the U.S. Although converting wind into electricity is increasingly affordable, it can be hard to get the regulatory and legal approval needed to transmit the power from remote areas where its produced to the places where its most needed. Clean Line has been working on its proposed directcurrent power line since 2010 but still hasnt been able to begin construction. The Missouri Public Service Commission rejected the project in July 2015 while determining it had little bene“t for Missouri consumers and citing the burden on landowners in its path. Clean Line then agreed to sell power to coalition of Missouri municipal utilities. It won Nixons endorsement in June 2016 after the Democratic governor said the company agreed to his request to add more landowner protections. Clean Line reapplied but got denied again by Missouri regulatory commissioners last August. This time they said that while Clean Lines project was worthy, it “rst needed approval from all counties where it planned to string power lines across roads. The commission cited a western district state appeals court ruling in an unrelated case. Thats when Clean Line turned to Nixon, a former state attorney general whose term as governor ended in January 2017. Nixon was hired because he had a strong working knowledge of the projectŽ and the Dowd Bennett law “rm where he now works has extensive appellate experience,Ž Mark Lawlor, Clean Lines vice president of development, said in an email. Nixon won the “rst round in court, when an eastern district state appeals court ruled in February that commissioners were wrong about local pre-approval being necessary. The judicial panel transferred the case to the states highest court for a “nal determination. When Nixon steps into the Missouri Sup reme Court, he said it will mark his “rst arguments there in more than 15 years. Hes been preparing by holding mock court sessions in front of attorneys who have grilled him with questions. He also enlisted the aid of longtime colleague James Layton, the states former solicitor general who argued 92 cases before the state Supreme Court over a two-decade career. Two of Missouris seven Supreme Court judges were appointed by Nixon, including one who previously worked for him in both the governors and attorney generals of“ces. But Nixon said he expects no favoritism and sees no potential con”ict of interest. I dont think anything says that after youve been governor, if you happen to be there for a while, that you should be limited in your ability to aggressively represent the clients that you so desire,Ž Nixon said.Large Midwest energy project turns to ex-Missouri governorBy DAVID A.

The Sun /Monday, April 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATION WASHINGTON „ Former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin is making it clear he was “red from his job amid con”icting claims from the White House. White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters on Sunday told The Associated Press that Shulkin had resignedŽ from his job when President Donald Trump abruptly announced via Twitter last Wednesday that he was nominating White House doctor Ronny Jackson to replace him. But in television interviews, Shulkin said he had not submitted a resignation letter, or planned to, and was only told of Trumps decision shortly before the Twitter announcement. He said he had spoken to Trump by phone earlier that day about VA improvements, with no mention of his job status, and was scheduled to meet with the president the next morning. I came to run the Department of Veterans Affairs because Im committed to veterans,Ž Shulkin said. And I would not resign, because Im committed to making sure this job was seen through to the very end.Ž The semantics could be relevant to Trumps ability to name an acting VA secretary to temporarily “ll Shulkins place. Last week, Trump named Defense Department of“cial Robert Wilkie to the acting position, bypassing Shulkins deputy secretary, Tom Bowman. Bowman has come under criticism for being too moderate to push Trumps agenda. Under federal law, a president has wide authority to temporarily “ll a federal agency job if someone dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the of“ce.Ž There is no mention of a president having that authority if the person is “red. Still, its unclear if courts would seek to draw a legal distinction between a “ring and a forced resignation, if that is indeed what happened to Shulkin. The day after announcing that he was replacing Shulkin, Trump told a rally in Rich“eld, Ohio, that he had been dissatis“ed with efforts to improve VA. Shulkin had enjoyed Trumps support for much of his “rst year in the administration, but that eroded in February after a bruising ethics scandal and political in“ghting at VA. A VA spokesman did not have immediate comment Sunday. Wilkie, now listed on the VA website as acting secretary, took over Shulkins duties last week. The back and forth over the circumstances behind Shulkins departure „ and what it could mean for Wilkies status „ comes as the nomination of Jackson is drawing concern among lawmakers and veterans groups. They worry the Navy rear admiral and lifelong physician lacks the experience to manage an enormous agency paralyzed over Trumps push to expand private care. Trumps new Cabinet nominees also are beginning to pile up in the Senate, likely leading to weeks of con“rmation battles and other delays in the run-up to congressional midterm elections in November. That could mean an extended reign for an acting VA secretary. On Sunday, Shulkin, who had previously recommended Jackson to be VA undersecretary of health, repeatedly demurred when asked to fully endorse Jackson for the job of VA secretary. He noted the complexity of running the governments second largest department. This is a very tough job,Ž Shulkin said. Im not sure that anybody realizes how complex this is ... I think he is going to need to have a good team around him, like everybody will, to be successful.Ž Shulkins dismissal comes amid a broader shakeup of top Trump administration of“cials and charges of excessive spending by Cabinet of“cials. Also currently under “re are Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. The AP reported last week that Pruitt paid just $50 a night for about six months last year to stay in a Capitol Hill condominium linked to a prominent Washington lobbyist whose “rm represents fossil fuel companies. On Sunday, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican, and Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., questioned whether Pruitt would be able to last in his job. I dont know how you survive this one, and if he has to go, its because he never shouldve been there in the “rst place,Ž Christie said. Hes in real trouble ... I think it seems that he may be on his way out,Ž Jones said. Shulkin spoke on CNNs State of the UnionŽ and NBCs Meet the Press,Ž and Jones and Christie appeared on ABCs This Week.ŽOusted Shulkin rejects claim he resigned VA jobBy HOPE YENASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this March 7, le photo, Veterans Aairs Secretary David Shulkin speaks at a news conference at the Washington Veterans Aairs Medical Center in Washington. Shulkin is making it clear he was red from his job amid conicting claims from the White House. Treading into ethically and legally uncertain territory, a New York end-of-life agency has approved a new document that lets people stipulate in advance that they dont want food or water if they develop severe dementia. The directive, “nalized in March by the board for End of Life Choices New York, aims to provide patients a way to hasten death in late-stage dementia, if they choose. Dementia is a terminal illness, but even in the seven U.S. jurisdictions that allow medical aid-in-dying, its not a condition covered by the laws. Increasingly, patients are seeking other options, said Dr. Timothy Quill, a palliative care expert at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and longtime advocate of the practice. Developing incapacitating dementia is certainly my and a lot of peoples worst nightmare,Ž he said. This is an aggressive document. Its a way of addressing a real problem, which is the prospect of advanced dementia.Ž The document offers two options: one that requests comfort feedingŽ „ providing oral food and water if a patient appears to enjoy or allows it during the “nal stages of the disease „ and one that would halt all assisted eating and drinking, even if a patient seems willing to accept it. Supporters say its the strongest effort to date to allow people who want to avoid the ravages of advanced dementia to make their “nal wishes known „ while they still have the ability to do so. They do not want their dying prolonged,Ž said Judith Schwarz, who drafted the document as clinical director for the advocacy group. This is an informed and thoughtful choice that needs a great deal of re”ection and discussion.Ž But critics say its a disturbing effort to allow withdrawal of basic sustenance from the most vulnerable in society. I think oral feeding is basic care,Ž said Richard Doer”inger, an associate scholar with the Charlotte Lozier Institute, which opposes abortion and euthanasia. Its what they want here and now that matters. If they start taking food, you give them food.Ž Advance directives are legally recognized documents that specify care if a person is incapacitated. They can con“rm that a patient doesnt want to be resuscitated or kept on life support, such as a ventilator or feeding tube, if they have a terminal condition from which theyre not likely to recover. However, the documents typically say nothing about withdrawing hand-feeding of food or ”uids. The New York directive, in contrast, offers option A, which allows refusal of all oral assisted feeding. Option B permits comfortfocused feeding. Both options would be invoked only when a patient is diag nosed with moderate or severe dementia, de“ned as Stages 6 or 7 of a widely used test known as the Functional Assessment Staging Tool (FAST). At those stages, patients would be unable to feed themselves or make health care decisions. The new form goes further than a similar dementia directive introduced last year by another group that supports aid-in-dying, End of Life Washington. That document says that a person with dementia who accepts food or drink should receive oral nourishment until he or she is unwilling or unable to do so. The New York document says, My instructions are that I do NOT want to be fed by hand even if I appear to cooperate in being fed by opening my mouth.Ž Whether the new directive will be honored in New York „ or anywhere else „ is unclear. Legal scholars and ethicists say directives withdrawing oral assisted feeding are prohibited in several states. Many care facilities are unlikely to cooperate, said Thaddeus Pope, director of the Health Law Institute at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn., and an expert on end-of-life law. Doctors have a duty to honor patient wishes, but they can refuse if they have medical or moral qualms. Even solidly legal advance directives do not and cannot ENSURE that wishes are respected,Ž Pope said in an email. They can only help assure that.Ž Directors at End of Life Choices New York consider the document legally sturdy,Ž Schwarz said, adding: Of course its going to end up in court.Ž Whether assisted feeding can be withdrawn was at the center of recent high-pro“le cases in which patients with dementia were spoon-fed against their documented wishes because they contin ued to open their mouths. In a case in Canada, a court ruled that such feeding is basic care that cant be withdrawn. People who “ll out the directives may be more likely to have them honored if they remain at home, Schwarz said. She stressed that patients should make their wishes known far in advance and choose health care agents who will be strong advocates. Legal experts say the documents should be updated regularly. Doer”inger, however, said creating the directive and making it available misses a crucial point: People who dont have dementia now cant know how theyll feel later, yet theyre deciding in advance to forgo nourishment. The question is: Do we, the able-bodied, have a right to discriminate against the disabled people we will later become?Ž Doer”inger said.New advance directive would let dementia patients refuse foodBy JONEL ALECCIAKAISER HEALTH NEWS Rock Hall to get $4.1M sponsorship; also to join in festivalCLEVELAND (AP) „ Clevelands Rock & Roll Hall of Fame says it will receive $4.1 million over “ve years to help expand its youth education programs and community activities.

(AP) „ The house where Rosa Parks sought refuge in Detroit after ”eeing the South is being brie”y displayed in Rhode Island, after a transAtlantic journey and the abrupt cancellation of an exhibition that was supposed to feature it. Parks moved to Detroit in 1957, two years after refusing to give up her bus seat. She stayed with her brother and his family. Years later, the house was abandoned. Her niece bought it off a demolition list for $500 then donated it to an artist who reassembled it in Germany. He returned it to America for a Brown University exhibition, but the show was canceled. Volunteers were able to partially assemble it and it was displayed this weekend. The house will have to be disassembled, and its not clear where it will land.Frank Stallone sorry for profane tweet on school shootingLOS ANGELES (AP) „ Frank Stallone is apologizing for a profane tweet attacking a survivor of the Florida school shooting. Mostly known for being the brother of Sylvester Stallone, the actor and musician backed away from a Saturday tweet attacking teenager David Hogg. Hogg has become a powerful voice for gun control after the attack at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida. Stallone used expletives and derogatory terms to refer to Hogg, suggesting one of the teenagers peers must by dying to sucker punchŽ him. Stallone later deleted the tweet and one aimed at another Parkland survivor. On Sunday, Stallone expressed remorse for what he called irresponsible words,Ž saying: After what these kids went through, Im deeply ashamed.Ž Several advertisers dropped Fox News personality Laura Ingraham after she mocked Hogg. She later apologized.Easter Parade brings out fun, fanciful hats in New York CityNEW YORK (AP) „ If its Easter Sunday, there must be hats. The annual Easter Parade has turned Manhattans Fifth Avenue into a spectacle. Some people are wearing elaborate, outlandish hats with ”owers and feathers. Others are making it a whole look, adding clothes and costumes. And of course, there are pets in festive wear as well. The event, more of a promenade than a parade, is a take on a New York City tradition that dates back to the late 1800s. In those days, the citys richer residents would wear their best clothes and walk along after attending church services. Judy Garland and Fred Astaire made the procession well-known in the movie, Easter Parade.Ž Other events marking the day include the Easter Bunny joining skaters at the rink at Rockefeller Center.Larry Nassar victim to speak at Harvard about forgivenessCAMBRIDGE, Mass.

Rachael Denhollander is slated to speak Thursday at an event titled Can We Reconcile Justice and Forgiveness?Ž Shes expected to discuss how religion in”uenced her ideas about justice and her ability to forgive people who dont seem to deserve it. Denhollander told police in 2016 that Nassar molested her when she was a 15-yearold gymnast. Dozens of other women later testi“ed in court that Nassar had abused them too. He pleaded guilty in November to molesting patients and possessing child pornography and was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.

(AP) „ A half century after getting a divorce, a Kentucky couple plans to get married again. The Lexington Herald-Leader reports 83-year-old Harold Holland and 78-year-old Lillian Barnes will exchange wedding vows on April 14 in Lexington. Their grandson will perform the ceremony at a local Baptist church. Holland and Barnes first were married on Christmas Eve in 1955. They had five children together before splitting up. Holland says his job kept him away from the family prior to the breakup. Both remarried and their spouses died in 2015. After that, Holland and Barnes attended a family reunion, and by last December, they were talking marriage again. Holland says, We decided we want to walk the last mile together.ŽODD NEWS Kentucky couple plans to remarry half century after divorcehope that talks underway could bring peace to the Korean peninsula, urging those who are directly responsible act with wisdom and discernment to promote the good of the Korean people.Ž The pope also urged more steps to bring harmony to divided Ukraine, called for peace in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo and appealed for the world not to forget victims of con”ict, especially children. May there be no lack of solidarity with all those forced to leave their native lands and lacking the bare essentials for living,Ž said Francis, who has often championed the cause of migrants and refugees.

The statement also said the sheriffs vehicle, which was surrounded by protesters yelling and pounding on the car, sustained scratches, dents, and a shattered rear window.Ž Activists and faith leaders called for justice not just for Clark, but for all black men killed by police. Family members of Joseph Mann, who was killed by Sacramento police in 2016, also spoke. The chairman of a police oversight commission urged attendees to continue their activism by showing up to meetings and pushing for systemic change. Community leaders urged the city to set a national example. This little small town can show this nation our great big heart,Ž the Rev. Kevin Ross said. About 150 people attended another vigil and protest Saturday night outside a sheriffs department of“ce. It was the latest disruptive but mostly peaceful demonstration since Clark was killed. Protesters have twice blocked fans from entering games involving the NBAs Sacramento Kings at a downtown arena, but there were no signs of trouble amid a big police presence at a game Saturday night against the Golden State Warriors. The Friday release of the private autopsy commissioned by Clarks family has prompted fresh outrage. Pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu, known for his study of a degenerative brain condition in football players, announced that Clark was hit by eight bullets „ six in the back, one in the neck and one in the thigh „ and took three to 10 minutes to die. Police waited about “ve minutes before rendering medical aid. Omalu said the proposition that Clark was assailing the of“cers, meaning he was facing them, is inconsistent with the prevailing forensic evidence.Ž He said it was unclear if Clark would have survived had he gotten immediate medical attention. A day after the shooting, police distributed a news release that said the of“cers who shot Clark saw the suspect facing them, advance forward with his arms extended, and holding an object in his hands.Ž Police video of the shooting doesnt clearly capture all that happened after Clark ran into his grandmothers backyard.

Trump ended the program last year, but gave Congress six months to pass legislation enshrining it. A deal has so far proved elusive and Trump has blamed Democrats for that. It was not immediately clear what Trump was referring to when he said people are coming to take advantage of the program, which granted the immigrants work permits. The Department of Homeland Security is not issuing new permits, though existing ones can be renewed. Anyone who wanted to participate in the program had a set period of time during which to sign up, and the program is no longer open to new entrants. Proposed DACA deals crafted by lawmakers also were not open to new participants. Trump did not explain what he meant when reporters asked as he entered the Church of Bethesda-by-theSea with the “rst lady and Tiffany Trump, his daughter from his second marriage. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for clari“cation. Trump, who addressed reporters brie”y before entering the church, again blamed Democrats for failing to protect the Dreamers.Ž They had a great chance. The Democrats blew it. They had a great, great chance, but well have to take a look because Mexico has got to help us at the border. They ”ow right through Mexico. They send them into the United States. It cant happen that way anymore.Ž Trump promised during the 2016 presidential campaign to build a southern border wall to stop illegal immigration and drugs from Mexico, but Congress has frustrated the president by not moving as quickly as he wants to provide money to start construction. The president also complained on Twitter that Border Patrol agents cant do their jobs properly because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) lawsŽ that allow people caught for being in the country illegally to be released while they await a hearing before a federal immigration judge. Trump tweeted that the situation is Getting more dangerousŽ and CaravansŽ are coming. He did not offer details to back his comment. Some fellow Republicans chided Trump over the tone of the tweets. A true leader preserves & offers hope, doesnt take hope from innocent children who call America home.

The Sun /Monday, April 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 STATE-BY-STATE MILWAUKEE … Lorraine Guenther and Thrivent Financial insurance company had a deal, or so she thought. She would pay them a premium of $500 a year for the rest of her life. And they would someday provide a death benet of $25,000 to cover her funeral and burial. The universal life policy took effect in 1988 when Guenther was 67, and it came with a maturity date of February 2021when she is 100. But now, three years earlier than that, the company is telling this grandmother the cash value of her policy will dwindle away to nothing later this year, and the death benet will be gone, too. At age 97, she apparently has outlived her life insurance. In my words, theyre penalizing me for living,Ž she said. Part of the issue is that the cost of insuring someone so old is chewing up all the cash value of the policy at a rate exceeding $300 a month, double what it was three years ago. About 10 years ago, the policy had a value that hovered around $10,000, but its down to $2,800 now and dropping fast. Guenther contacted Thrivent recently and was put in touch with an agent who suggested that lowering the death benet to $10,000 would buy her some time with the policy, but not beyond next year. Guenther turns 98 in April. He said, The Lord has been good to you and has allowed you to live all these years.Ž Im very grateful. Thank you, mister,Ž she replied. But I still expected to get my money when I passed away so I could be buried.Ž Thrivent Financial used to be known as Aid Association for Lutherans. Guenther bought the policy through her church. The men would come to church and talk to us and we knew them as friends. The man who prepared it for us was a friend of my husbands,Ž she said. She lost touch with that agent. Guenthers husband, Harold, with whom she raised three sons in Wauwatosa, Wis., died in 2002. Guenthers sons got involved, and soon letters were going between the family and Thrivent. Son Jim said he doesnt think anything illegal is going on, but rather a built-in stick it to you.Ž The family led a complaint with the Wisconsin commissioner of insurance, asking for a refund approaching $20,000. Theyre awaiting a reply. In a statement, Thrivent said a policy like Guenthers oers no guarantee of coverage until age 100. HIGHLIGHT: WISCONSIN Lorraine Guenther wants a refund.

(N) LOS ANGELES „ Steven Spielberg has found his way back to the top of the box of“ce with the action-adventure Ready Player One,Ž while Tyler Perry has scored again with Acrimony.Ž Studio estimates on Sunday say Spielbergs virtual reality-focused “lm earned a solid $53.2 million in its “rst four days in theaters from 4,234 locations since opening Wednesday night, with $41.2 million of that coming from the three-day weekend. Not adjusted for in”ation, its Spielbergs best opening in a decade following Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,Ž which launched with $100.1 million in 2008. Aside from The BFG,Ž Spielberg has lately favored smaller historical dramas instead of the big-scale blockbusters of his heyday. Based on Ernest Clines popular novel and chalk full of references to 1980s pop culture, including some nods to Spielbergs own “lms, Ready Player OneŽ is a return to the popcorn “lmmaking that he became known for. With that includes a reportedly hefty $175 million price tag, which does not account for marketing costs. Audiences gave the “lm an ACinemaScore, and reviews have been warm, too (its sitting at a 76 percent on Rotten Tomatoes). Those who turned out this weekend were mostly male (59 percent) and over the age of 25 (56 percent). Its great to be in the Steven Spielberg business,Ž said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution. We always believed that this movie itself would carry the day and thats really what happened. Weve seen all around the globe that the word of mouth is really propelling it.Ž Goldstein said while advance ticket sales were solid, the walk-up business was particularly robust on Friday and Saturday. Internationally, the “lm exceeded the studios expectations with $128 million from 62 territories, including $61.7 million from China (the biggest-ever opening in the country for Warner Bros.). Globally it grossed $181.3 million. ComScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian said the performance of Ready Player OneŽ should be judged in the context of the marketplace, which is down signi“cantly (24.1 percent) from last March and has seen nearly every “lm since Black PantherŽ open in the middling to good range.Ž None of them have set the world on “re,Ž Dergarabedian said. Were living in a world where a $52.3 million gross for the “rst four days is a really good number.Ž Tyler Perrys AcrimonyŽ took second place. Driven by an overwhelmingly female audience, the “lm starring Taraji P. Henson grossed $17.1 million over the 3-day weekend, followed by Black PantherŽ in third place with $11.3 million. With $650.7 million in domestic grosses, Black PantherŽ is poised to pass Jurassic WorldsŽ $652 million to become the fourth highest grossing domestic release of all time. A batch of faith-based “lms also competed for attention leading up to the Easter holiday, including I Can Only Imagine,Ž which scored again with $10.8 million to take fourth place. It outshined Paul, Apostle of Christ,Ž which earned $3.5 million in weekend two and the new opener, Gods Not Dead: A Light in Darkness,Ž which stumbled with $2.6 million. Even Wes Andersons Isle of Dogs,Ž playing in only 165 locations, beat Gods Not Dead 3Ž with $2.8 million. Paci“c Rim UprisingŽ rounded out the top “ve with $9.2 million, down 67 percent from last weekends No. 1 opening. The year is still down nearly four percent, too, but there are some superheroes on the horizon. The cavalry is on the way in Avengers: In“nity War,Ž Dergarabedian said.

British royals go to Easter service without Harry and MarkleLONDON (AP) „ Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William and his wife, Kate, and other senior British royals celebrated an Easter church service Sunday at the chapel where Prince Harry and American “ancee Meghan Markle will get married in May. Harry and Markle did not attend the service at St. Georges Chapel in Windsor, England. Palace of“cials said their weekend plans were private. Prince Philip, the queens husband, also did not attend. The 96-year-old has retired from public duties and been seen less frequently. Most of the royals walked down the hill from Windsor Castle to the chapel, but the 91-yearold queen arrived by car, wearing a purple fuchsia coatdress and matching hat. William and Kate also took a car to the chapel, arriving at the church a few minutes late. They emerged without their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate is expecting the couples third child later this month. Jack Brooksbank, who is engaged to the queens granddaughter Princess Eugenie, made his “rst Easter appearance with the royal family. Brooksbank and Eugenie, the daughter of Princess Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, plan to wed in October. NEWS BRIEFS

The Sun /Monday, April 2, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: There is a very easy cure for hot ashes „ and it works! Take 400 units of vitamin E twice a day. The ashes will disappear in three days. This has worked for countless women for years. Why don't doctors know about this? „ S.P.B. ANSWER: Researchers have evaluated vitamin E for the treatment of hot ashes. One study found that vitamin E reduced hot ashes by about 25 percent, but an identical pill with no vitamin E reduced hot ashes by 22 percent. Another study showed that women had ve hot ashes a day on placebo, and 3.2 a day on vitamin E. On the basis of this, I can't recommend vitamin E as a very eective treatment. However, it is safe and is at least partially eective for some women. DEAR DR. ROACH: A recent column discussed female pattern hair loss. I experienced hair loss similar to what this woman described. I am 65, and the receding hairline and loss of crown hair started when I was 60. I asked every doctor I went to (including a dermatologist, an internist and a gynecologist) why my hair was thinning so signicantly. All of them said that at my age, it could be expected. All of my bloodwork was good „ no low thyroid. In September 2017, a new dermatologist asked if my hormone levels had been checked (they had not), because it looked like male pattern hair loss. My testosterone levels were o-the-charts high. She sent me back to my gynecologist, who did a pelvic ultrasound, which led to an MRI, which showed that I had a small cyst on my right ovary (one that he had not been able to feel). He said it may be a very rare cyst that was secreting testosterone. In January, my ovaries were removed, and testing of the cyst showed that it was a Sertoli-Leydig cancer that was contained in the cyst. I thought it might be helpful to remind women with signicant hair loss to have their hormones checked as a possible cause. If this had not been done for me, this cyst would not have been detected until it was much larger and the cancer more advanced. As you can imagine, I am very grateful to my new dermatologist for taking the initiative in helping me get properly diagnosed. I am hopeful that my hair will grow back, but if not, that's ne. I am happy to be cancer-free! „ Anon. ANSWER: I am glad that you were diagnosed and treated in time. It is unfortunate to hear that your diagnosis was delayed. Female pattern hair loss is an overall thinning of hair along the midline of the scalp, whereas male pattern is a receding hairline and thinning along the crown. However, some people have a pattern that is dicult to type, and it is important to check for other signs of high testosterone. Growth of body hair, acne and a deeper voice all are indicative of excess testosterone in women. If it's unclear which type, a simple blood test is potentially lifesaving.

Please allow four weeks for delivery.DEAR ABBY: My elderly father remarried after my mother died two years ago. He married an acquaintance who is 30 years younger at the courthouse with no friends or family in attendance. He told this woman beforehand that there was a large widow's pension he'd paid into for decades that he wanted to give to her by marrying her. She claimed to be in an "unhappy" marriage at the time, and promptly got a divorce. Well, she and her now-ex have "suddenly started getting along just great," so she decided to continue to live with her ex after her marriage to Dad. Despite agreeing to these terms and because the woman teased him before their marriage, Dad is angry that she still won't have sex with him. Also upsetting is that when they are out socially, his new wife still introduces her ex as her "husband" and Dad as their "friend." Now we learn, despite assurances during discussions with an attorney prior to the marriage that she would never exercise her rights as a spouse to any other funds or property, she's asking my dad for a monthly allowance so she can retire, since she has no savings. Abby, do we have any recourse in this situation? Do you think we are right to call my father's marriage fraudulent, and would we be considered accomplices by not reporting it to any authorities before his death? „ Stepdaughter In Revolt DEAR STEPDAUGHTER: You are correct that the "marriage" was fraudulent, and you certainly do have recourse. Your father's lawyer should be consulted immediately to discuss an annulment of this bogus arrangement. Because your father's judgment is so poor, go with him to ensure that no details are left out. Frankly, I think the woman may be guilty of elder abuse, and your father may need a conservator. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND ON is about volunteering. „ Heloise "Dear Heloise: Maybe you've heard the expression 'Many hands make the workload light.' It's true, and never more so than for organizations that are on a tight budget, such as animal shelters, services for the elderly and children's organizations. If any of your readers are thinking of volunteering, pick an organization and help out when you can. To those who already volunteer, thank you many times over. Your help is invaluable, your service is appreciated." „ Hazel W., Wabash, Ind. Dear Readers: Got empty tissue boxes? Reuse them: To store small plastic grocery bags. As tissue receptacles for used tissues when you have cold. To store cotton balls. In a laundry room to hold lint.„ HeloiseVitamin E is no miracle cure f or women and hot ashes Suspicion surrounds elderly father's new, younger wife Thank volunteer workersHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

One way that your subconscious speaks to you is in the form of curiosity. Another way is in the form of jealousy. Both give you hints as to the endeavors that might suit your personality the best. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Bottom line, the people who are worried about being seen as less than desirable are feeling less than desirable. Its just an unsubstantiated opinion! Absolutely stamp it out. The truly desired dont care what anyone thinks. CANCER (June 22-July 22). What about compassion? What about listening? What about forgetting the societal expectations for an hour or a day? This is the way to nd a heart. The rst heart youll nd will be your own. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It doesnt matter whether the dog saw the invitation list or not; the dog will bark at intruders and invited guests alike. Your adrenaline system is a little like that. The things that trigger it today may surprise you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As for the person who nds it hard to give a compliment, you might nd this fact rather suspicious. Rightly so. It shouldnt be so dicult to prop up those around you, unless you are harboring emotional disabilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No word? Assume the best. No news will be good news. No answer? Go along your happy way. Everything is happening in the time its supposed to. All will be revealed on a need-to-know basis. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anyone who has taken good care of another human knows the humility that this requires. A servants heart is rewarded in ways that those who dont have one would nd hard to understand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Masks are sti, fake and boring. Its almost impossible to project your own personality through one. Some will put on a mask to deal with todays situation, but youll get better results just being yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Space is a vacuum that doesnt carry sound the way air does, but the planets howl and plasma whistles nonetheless. Today youll be like the high-powered space probe that picks up what no one else does. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your mind will be like a laser today. Lasers are used to do surgeries, catch thieves and manufacture clothes. Similarly, youll use your powers of focus in multiple and unrelated ways. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Youll design new habits for the way you want to grow „ but you wont expect others to follow along, because authentic people like you live by their own rules. No one else needs to follow them for them to be valid. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (April 2). It will be lucky to learn new languages and communication styles. Youve an energy everyone wants to cozy up to, and your social life will reect this. Positive thoughts seed a magically unfolding July and August. An investment will pay double in 2019. A deal involving three or more partners will bring good fortune. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 1, 33 and 49.

Page 10 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, April 2, 2018 WORLD KEMEROVO, Russia „ Trapped inside a movie theater at a burning shopping center, 11-year-old Vika Pochankinas made a panicked phone call to her aunt and delivered her last words: Im suffocating. Tell Mama that I loved her.Ž Yevgenia Pochankina told her niece to cover her nose with her clothes to fend off the smoke. After a moment, she disconnected,Ž the aunt told The Associated Press. The deaths of 64 people „ including 41 children „ in a Siberian shopping center “re on March 25 have tormented their loved ones not only with the memories of those they have lost but with deep dismay about the state of life in Russia. The relatives „ and many others in Russia „ ask why the shopping centers emergency exits were locked, why the malls “re alarms didnt sound, whether the center ever met building standards or if inspectors were bribed to turn a blind eye to de“ciencies. Living in Kemerovo, a Siberian city 1,900 miles east of Moscow, they are hurt and angry over what they see as of“cial callousness after the “re. The regional governor didnt visit the scene, President Vladimir Putin didnt declare a national day of mourning until two days after the “re, and of“cials have dismissed their protests over the blaze as political opportunism. This tragedy re”ects all of Russias problems „ the corruption of of“cials who closed their eyes to problems with “re safety, uncoordinated work of the special services, the imperviousness of authorities,Ž said Rasim Yaraliyev, head of a citizens group pressing for answers about the “re. Vika was one of six schoolchildren from the village of Treshchevsky who had traveled 30 miles that day to Kemerovo, a trip rewarding them for being good students. As they sat in the theater watching an animated “lm, a “re broke out in the four-story Winter Cherry mall. Vika and her classmates were among the dead. Teacher Oksana Yevseyeva, the trips chaperone, had left the children to watch the movie themselves in the theater while she did some shopping. She was on the “rst ”oor when the “re broke out above. I begged the guards to give me a mask and let me in to the children when the “re started, but they said there is smoke everywhere, you will just die,Ž she said. Igor Vostrikov, whose wife, three daughters and a sister died in the “re, told the AP that investigators had let him see him CCTV footage from outside the movie theater, showing that the entrance doors to the room where they died were locked by a man who possibly was trying to keep the smoke out until a rescue team arrived. On Saturday he posted a video apparently showing a woman opening the door to that room as smoke began “lling the multiplexs hallway but she apparently says nothing. The video showed people ”eeing other rooms. Six people have been arrested in the case, including the head of the regional construction inspection agency when the shopping center was developed in a former candy factory, and the general director of the company that owns the mall. But distrust in Russian of“cials promises of a thorough investigation is strong. Theyre not telling us the truth. Judging by everything, nobody saved the children, they closed them off and abandoned them,Ž said Olga Begeza, whose daughter Diana wanted to go on the trip but couldnt because her mother didnt have the 400 rubles ($7) to pay for it. It seems that our lives dont count for anything. Thats the only thing my family has understood,Ž she said. Complaints about of“cial corruption and incompetence are widespread in Russia, and in Kemerovo they are aggravated by whats seen as an insensitive response from of“cials. Although Putin visited Kemerovo on Tuesday, he did not speak to a large gathering of demonstrators demanding answers, protesting corruption and calling for regional of“cials ouster. Deputy regional governor Sergei Tsivilyov did show up but incurred the crowds anger when he dismissed as a PR stuntŽ concerns that the death toll was far higher than of“cially reported. In a meeting with Putin, regional governor Aman Tuleyev added to the anger by blaming Žthe oppositionŽ and local busybodiesŽ for fomenting the 10-hour protest. Tuleyevs resignation, after more than 20 years in the post, was announced Sunday by the Kremlin. Tsivilyov is now the acting governor. In the days after the “re, tens of thousands of people in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities have streamed to makeshift memorials to the “re victims, bringing ”owers and stuffed toys. Of“cials appear concerned that dismay over the “re could encourage protests that could undermine Putins mandate just weeks after he won election to a fourth term. Andrei Klimov, head of the committee for defense of state sovereignty in the upper house of parliament, warned that such protests could be exploited by Western countries that want to weaken Russia, echoing the frequent contention that the West is inherently Russophobic.Ž With every protest, they try to transfer it into the political plane „ an example of this is the situation in Kemerovo,Ž he said Friday.Anger surges after Siberian mall fire kills 64By YURAS KARMANAUASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOPeople bring owers, toys and candles during a day of mourning for the victims of Sundays re in a shopping mall in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, in Manezhnaya square, near the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia, Wednesday. JERUSALEM „ Israels defense minister on Sunday rejected international calls for an investigation into deadly violence along Gazas border with Israel, saying troops acted appropriately and “red only at Palestinian protesters who posed a threat. Fifteen Palestinians were killed and over 700 wounded in Fridays violence near the Israeli border, according to Palestinian health of“cials. It was the areas deadliest violence since a war four years ago. Human rights groups have accused the army of using excessive force, and both the U.N. secretary-general and the European Unions foreign policy chief have urged an investigation. In an interview, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel would not cooperate with a U.N. inquiry if there were one. From the standpoint of the Israeli soldiers, they did what had to be done,Ž Lieberman told Israeli Army Radio. I think that all of our troops deserve a commendation, and there wont be any inquiry.Ž Fridays mass marches were largely led by Gazas ruling Hamas group and touted as the launch of a six-week-long protest campaign against a sti”ing decade-old blockade of the territory. Israel and Egypt have maintained the blockade since Hamas, an Islamic militant group sworn to Israels destruction, seized control of Gaza in 2007. In Fridays confrontations, large crowds gathered near the fence, with smaller groups of protesters rushing forward, throwing stones and burning tires. Israeli troops responded with live “re and rubber-coated steel pellets, while drones dropped tear gas from above. Soldiers with ri”es were perched on high earthen embankments overlooking the scene. Protests have continued since Friday but at a far smaller scale. On Sunday, one person was seriously wo unded by gun“re, Palestinian medical of“cials said. The military has said it responded only to violent attacks aimed at troops and the border fence. But video from the scene showed at least a handful of incidents in which people appear to have been shot either far from the border or while they were not actively rioting. The Israeli military accused Hamas of releasing videos that were either incomplete, edited or completely fabricated.Ž It said troops had followed strict rules of engagement, and that protesters were putting themselves in harms wayŽ by operating in a dangerous area. In the interview, Lieberman said those who protested peacefully were not harmed, saying claims that peaceful protesters were harmed were lies and inventions.Ž Whoever didnt get close to the fence was not shot,Ž he said. Tamar Zandberg, leader of the dovish opposition party Meretz, posted a video over the weekend calling for an independent inquiry into Fridays violence. Im worried about the fate of all of us, and the fate of the residents of the Gaza periphery communities, who could be sitting in bomb shelters today, tomorrow or next week,Ž she told Army Radio, so Im calling to stop this now.Ž Zandberg came under heavy criticism for her comments. As if this were a case of innocent civilians who had been shot while doing their holiday shopping, rather than people who had been pushed to the border by Hamas in order to be killed in service to the Palestinian narrative,Ž wrote defense analyst Alon Ben-David. The Israeli military has said those killed by troops were men who were involved in violence and who belonged to Hamas and other militant factions. The army later released the names and ages of 10 of the dead, including what it said were eight members of Hamas and two from other militant groups. Israel has also accused Gaza health of“cials of exaggerating the number of wounded. Four of the 15 dead were members of the Hamas military wing, Hamas said Saturday. The group said a “fth member who was not on the Health Ministry list was killed near the border, and that Israel has the body. It said another man is also missing in the border area. The protests are to culminate in a large border march on May 15, the 70th anniversary of Israels founding. The date is mourned by Palestinians as their nakba,Ž or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands were uprooted in the 1948 Mideast war over Israels creation.Israel rejects calls for inquiry into Gaza violenceBy JOSEF FEDERMANASSOCIATED PRESS Two-day strike by French workers to disrupt train servicePARIS (AP) „ Frances national train company is warning that a workers strike will disrupt train service within France and elsewhere in Europe on Tuesday and Wednesday. SNCF said in a statement on Sunday that only 15 percent of high-speed trains and 25 percent of regional trains would be running on April 3-4 due to the strike. The company says one in three trains between France and Germany and 75 percent of Eurostar trains between Paris and London will be operating. Four labor unions have called on rail workers to strike for two days every week until the end of June. They are protesting a government plan to prepare SNCF before the service is opened to competition and to end some worker bene“ts. Thalys trains between France, Belgium and the Netherlands should be running normally.Mexican frontrunner, ruling party candidate start campaignsMEXICO CITY (AP) „ Front-running candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrado has opened his campaign for the July 1 presidential election in Ciudad Juarez, the border city that launched some of Mexicos key resistance struggles. Lopez Obrador depicts his third run at the presidency as a historic battle against corruption and entrenched elites, on a par with the resistance to the French invasion of 1862-1867 and the 19101917 revolution. Ciudad Juarez served as a base in both. Ruling party candidate Jose Antonio Meade launched his campaign Sunday in the colonial city of Merida, the capital of a state his Institutional Revolutionary Party hopes to retain, with nine governorships at stake. Meade is third in the polls. He alluded to Lopez Obrador, saying, Dont let them take away the future of our children with false promises.Ž7 police die trying to quell prison riot in MexicoMEXICO CITY (AP) „ Authorities in eastern Mexico say seven police of“cers have died while trying to quell a prison riot. The Veracruz state government says the of“cers entered the La Toma prison in the mountain town of Amatlan de los Reyes to restore order and move some dangerous inmates on Sunday. It says inmates apparently set “re to some mattresses, and the smoke may have killed the of“cers. Investigators are trying to con“rm the cause of death. The statement doesnt describe how the riot began.Lawyer: Ex-Guatemala dictator Efrain Rios Montt dies at 91GUATEMALA CITY (AP) „ A lawyer for former Guatemalan dictator Efrain Rios Montt says the ex-leader has died at age 91. Lawyer Jaime Hernandez says the cause of death was a heart attack on Sunday. Rios Montt seized power in a 1982 coup and presided over one of the bloodiest periods of Guatemalas civil war as soldiers waged a scorched-earth campaign to root out Marxist guerrillas. Rios Montt was convicted in 2013 of genocide and crimes against humanity for the massacre of 1,771 indigenous Ixil Mayans by security forces under his command. But the ruling was swiftly set aside and a new trial ordered, dismaying human rights activists and victims who long sought to see him punished for atrocities during his 17-month regime. He is survived by his daughter Zury Rios.Egypt media body fines newspaper over election coverageCAIRO (AP) „ Egypts media regulatory body has “ned an Egyptian newspaper 150,000 Egyptian pounds ($8,527.5) and called for an investigation over a front-page report it published saying the state rallied voters to participate in the presidential election. Sundays decision by the Supreme Council for Media Regulation says it has called for an investigation into Al Masry Al Youm by the Press Syndicate, naming its chief and news editors speci“cally, and demanded that the daily issue an apology to the National Election Authority. Pro-government media and the states regulatory bodies have largely criticized foreign medias coverage of the election. Since 2017, Egyptian authorities have blocked some 500 websites including those of independent media and rights groups. Several local reporters have also been jailed, and a British journalist was expelled in February. WORLD NEWS BRIEFS

PETERSBURG … The hope for the Rays offense to, if not get hot, become at least lukewarm moves to New York, where the team could see snow Monday when it faces the Yankees in their home opener at Yankee Stadium. It did not happen Sunday in a 2-1 loss to the Red Sox in front of 14,245 at Tropicana Field. The Rays scored just three runs in the final three games of the four-game series. Not surprisingly, all were losses. They had their chances Sunday but could not come up with the big hit in a big situation. The biggest was in the ninth, when twoout singles by Mallex Smith and Adeiny Hechavarria put runners on the corners against Joe Kelly. But Denard Span, Thursday's hero, struck out. The Red Sox rode their starting pitching to take the series 3 games to 1. The Rays scored first when Brad Miller hit his first homer of the year to start the second inning. Matt Duffy followed with a single and Wilson Ramos singled one out later to put runners on first and second with one out. But the Rays couldn't capitalize. Smith lined out to leftfield and Hechavarria forced Ramos at second. The Red Sox tied the score in the fifth inning when J.D. Martinez singled home Mookie Betts. A diving stop by second baseman Joey Wendle going to his left with two on and two out prevented the Sox from taking the lead. But that happened the following inning when Rafael Devers singled to right with the bases loaded. Third-base coach Carlos Febles sent Brock Holt, who was on second. Holt was easily thrown out at the plate by rightfielder Carlos Gomez. The Rays had a similar scenario in the bottom of the inning when Duffy, on first with a two-out single, was held at third by Rays coach Matt Quatraro on Wendle's double to the rightfield corner. It was hard to tell if Duffy would have scored, but the throw home was off line. Ramos then flied out to right to end that threat. Rays starter Jake Faria lasted into the fifth inning. When facing the Red Sox order for the third time, he allowed a leadoff single to Betts, walked Devers and allowed the RBI hit to Martinez. He was replaced by MLB: RED SOX 2, RAYS 1 By STEPHEN HAWKINSAssociated PressSAN ANTONIO „ Jay Wrights custom-tailored suits are as sharp as Villanovas 3-point shooting.

Ogunbowale floated in a 3-pointer from the corner with 0.1 seconds left, lifting Notre Dame to its second womens basketball title with a thrilling 61-58 comeback victory over Mississippi State in the NCAA championship game on Sunday night. It was the second straight game that the junior guard hit a shot in the final second to carry the Irish. Her jumper with one second remaining in overtime knocked off previously unbeaten UConn in the semifinals Friday. With this game tied, Ogunbowale took the inbounds pass from Jackie Young, dribbled twice toward the corner and, closely guarded, lofted home an offbalance 3 in front of the Notre Dame bench. Close to the same spot on the court where she took down the Huskies, too. It just felt right,Ž said Ogunbowale, who scored 16 of her 18 points in the second half. I practice late-game all the time.

Forsberg returned to the Predators lineup after being held out of Saturdays loss to Buffalo for maintenance. Craig Smith and Ryan Johansen also scored to help Nashville move closer to clinching the Presidents Trophy with the leagues best record. Juuse Saros finished with 29 saves. Tampa Bay, which went 0 for 5 on the power play, played the final two periods without captain Steven Stamkos, who left the game with an undisclosed lower-body injury. Ondrej Palat scored for the Lightning, and Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 21 saves while lost his third consecutive game. The Lightning fell to 5-6-0 in the past 11 games and sit two points behind Boston for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Nashville, coming off a lopsided loss to Buffalo on Saturday, opened up the scoring as Johansen led a 2-on-1 rush and pulled the puck back before beating Vasilevskiy with a wrist shot 7:50 into the game. The Predators doubled their leadearly in the second at the tail end of a power play as Forsbergs shot deflected off the stick of Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman and trickled through Vasilevskiys pads at 2:46.

Final Four hero lifts Notre Dame to titleSEE LIGHTNING, 2By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressKEY BISCAYNE „ John Isner punctuated his unexpected run to the Miami Open title with a surprising display of agility, dancing across the court while basking in a breakthrough. The 6-foot-10 Isner looked twice as tall skipping about with a grin brighter than the Florida sunshine. He had just won the biggest title of his 14-year career, holding every service game and rallying past Alexander Zverev 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4 on Sunday. Isner, who turns 33 this month, previously had been 0-3 in ATP Masters 1000 finals. You cant replicate moments like this,Ž Isner said during the trophy ceremony. Im toward the latter part of my career; this is the best moment of my career.Ž Isners win came in the last singles match on Key Biscayne before the Miami Open moves next year to the NFL Dolphins stadium. Seeded 14th, Isner became the first American man to win the tournament since Andy Roddick in 2010. Isner joined Sloane Stephens who won the womens title Saturday, for the first U.S. sweep in the event since 2004, when the champions were Roddick and Serena Williams.

At his best, he can be every bit as ef“ cient as Villanovas stars. G Jalen Brunson, Villanova: Its likely the “ nal college game for the junior, who will graduate in three years and is seeking his second national title. Villanova is 12-1 in the NCAA tournament during Brunsons career, and he had 18 points and six assists Saturday against Kansas. G Charles Matthews, Michigan: The Kentucky transfer is averaging 16.6 points and 6.8 rebounds during the NCAA tournament and helped carry the backcourt Saturday when Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Zavier Simpson struggled against Loyola-Chicago. F Eric Paschall, Villanova: The redshirt junior is coming off a brilliant 24-point showing, his largest scoring total since transferring from Fordham after the 2014-15 season. Paschall was 10 of 11 from the ” oor Saturday against Kansas and could be a matchup issue for the Wolverines. could celebrate after pulling off the biggest comeback in title game history. They rallied from a 15-point deficit in the third quarter and were down five in the final 1:58. Marina Mabrey hit a 3-pointer from the wing and Young had a shot in the lane to tie it. The title came 17 years to the day after Notre Dames only other championship in 2001 on Easter. Its Easter Sunday, and all the Catholics were praying for us,Ž said coach Muffet McGraw, who was wearing floral shoes in honor of the holiday. When the final buzzer sounded, a wild celebration started with the Irish faithful who were part of the sellout crowd. McGraws team had fallen short four times in seven years in the title game, losing in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015. Many of the Notre Dame alums who were on teams that had fallen just short of winning a title were there to enjoy it, including Natalie Achonwa, Natalie Novosel and Becca Bruszewki This version of McGraws squad refused to lose, and the run was even more improbable because the Irish lost four players over the season to ACL injuries. Tied as the clock ran down, Mississippi State star Teaira McCowan missed a layup with 27.8 seconds left, and both teams turned the ball over. McCowan then fouled out of the game stopping an Irish fast break and set up the final 3 seconds. KEY FOR VILLANOVA Patience on offense: This comes naturally for the Wildcats, who are among the best in the country at ball movement and passing up good shots for great shots. Michigan ranks third in the country in defensive ef“ ciency according to KenPom.com, and are less likely than most to offer Villanova the sort of looks they received in Saturdays rout of Kansas. Jalen Brunson and the Wildcats will have to work harder on offense, but its something theyve routinely done throughout the season. KEY FOR MICHIGAN Bounceback nights in the backcourt: The Wolverines got away with largely being a two-man team for much of Saturdays defeat of Loyola-Chicago. Charles Matthews and Moritz Wagner combined to shoot 17 of 28 from the ” oor; the rest of the roster was 8 of 31. Most glaring was the off nights for Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman (2 of 11) and Zavier Simpson (0 of 6). Both will need to have more effective nights on offense for Michigan to win.No. 1 seed from the East Region, has set records for making 3-pointers „ both for the season (454), the NCAA Tournament (66) and their 18 in the national semifinal game against fellow No. 1 seed Kansas. The title game in the Alamodome will be the first time in this NCAA Tournament that the third-seeded Wolverines (33-7) face a top-5 seed. They beat the Nos. 14, 6, 7 and 9 seeds in the West Region before overcoming a 10-point deficit after halftime Saturday night to be Loyola-Chicago, only the fourth No. 11 seed to ever make to the Final Four. Loyola made only 1 of 10 3s against the nations No. 3 defense in terms of efficiency. After Kris Jenkins hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer against North Carolina to win the national championship two years ago, Villanovas first since 1985 under Rollie Massimino, the now 56-year-old Wright noticed p eo p le lookin g at him differently. Mostly positively. But sometimes if you dont handle it well they look at you negatively. They just look at you a lot more.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. „ Sergio Garcia peeled back the blanket and leaned over for another peek at his 3-week-old daughter, sound asleep against her mothers chest. As his wife chatted with friends, he walked back over to take a purse that dangled from her arm, and then a shopping bag at her feet. He was much a doting father and husband as he was the Masters champion, and that was only fitting Sunday. The mood is light the day before Masters week officially begins. It feels more like a day of family and celebration, enhanced by the 60 children moving out from the driving range to the chipping area to the 18th green for the Drive, Chip and Putt competition that has become a tradition since it began five years ago. Garcia was a big part of that, too. He became the first defending champion to attend the reception Saturday night. One girl was asked for her best Garcia impersonation from his victory last year, and she crouched, clenched her fists and pumped both arms. According to those in attendance, Garcia came on stage and showed the real thing. Garcia later went out for a practice round with his father, Victor, but not before a big Spanish celebration. The large group next to the outdoor dining area between the clubhouse and the putting green included Garcias parents, his wifes parents, two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal and Jon Rahm, who hopes to become the fourth Spaniard in a green jacket. After speaking in English and Spanish to European Tour television, Rahm said he had to leave. Im going wherever he goes,Ž he said, nodding to where Garcia was standing, except that he was referring to Olazabal. Rahm recalled going to a Spanish event five years ago ahead of the World Amateur Team Championship to ask Olazabal what parts of his game needed work. Olazabal told him to concentrate on his chipping and putting. He said, Do this, do that. So I did this, I did that. And I won,Ž Rahm said, smiling before he added, So I need to listen to this man.Ž There were Masters champions all over Augusta National on Sunday, several of them presenting trophies to the various age groups of winners. Garcia, Adam Scott, Nick Faldo, Mark OMeara, Gary Player, Ben Crenshaw and Bubba Watson were among those posing with the kids. Faldo and Watson share one peculiar thing in common at the Masters „ multiple victories, no top 10s except for when they win. It goes against so much evidence that M asters champions have a knack for playing well.

Down to his last putt, Poulter made a 20-foot birdie on the 18th hole to force a playoff with Beau Hossler, and then he won the Houston Open with a par on the first extra hole to earn the last spot in the Masters. One week after Poulter was mistakenly told he had locked up a spot at Augusta National through the world ranking, he left no doubt by winning with a clutch moment reminiscent of his Ryder Cup heroics from Medinah in 2012. I had to dig deep today,Ž said Poulter, who closed with a 5-under 67. Hossler, who also shot 67, overcame a three-shot deficit with four straight birdies on the back nine. He had a chance to win on the 18th in regulation with a 30-foot birdie putt that trickled over the right edge of the cup. That set the stage for Poulter, and the 42-year-old from England lived up to his nickname as The PostmanŽ by delivering his biggest putt in years. Poulter pounded his chest five times when the putt dropped, and all Hossler could do was smile. I did think Id made it,Ž Hossler said, but it hung out there. Ian basically had the same putt and theres no way he was going to miss it after watching my ball. I gave Ian the perfect read (for him) to make his putt. I knew he was going to make it.Ž In the sudden-death playoff on the 18th, one of the more daunting finishing holes off the tee with water down the left side and a bunker to the right, Hossler found the bunker for the second time. He hit into a greenside bunker, and his third shot caught way too much ball and went over the green and into the water. Poulter was safely on the green as Hossler took his penalty drop, chipped onto the green and took two putts for a triple bogey. They finished at 19-under 269. Poulter won for the third time on the PGA Tour, and his first in America since the Match Play in 2010 at Arizona. This was his first stroke-play victory in America, and the timing could not have been better. When he reached the quarterfinals of the Dell Technologies Match Play last weekend in Austin, he was told that it was enough to get him into the top 50 in the world ranking by the end of the weekend, the cutoff for qualifying for the Masters. It turned out he needed to win his quarterfinal match, and Poulter was informed of the mistake before he teed off. Kevin Kisner beat him, 8 and 6. Poulter was so disappointed that he contemplated not even going to Houston, and when he opened with a 73 in a first round of low scoring, he packed his bags and prepared to go home to Florida the next day. Instead, he bounced back with a 64, and shot 65-67 on the weekend. Last week was painful,Ž he said. To come here this week, I was tired. I was frustrated on Thursday. ... I was patient. I waited my time. And this is amazing.Ž It was his first victory since the HSBC Champions, a World Golf Championship event at Mission Hills in China in 2012. That was a month after Poulter led Europe to a stunning tu rnaround in the Ryder Cup by making five straight birdies to win a fourballs match and give Europe momentum to overcome a four-point deficit. Along with going to the Masters, Poulter cracks the top 30 in the world and now is in good shape to be eligible for the rest of the majors. He also has a two-year exemption, critical because he nearly lost his card a year ago until he was spared by a clerical error by the tour. The journey continues. Ive had 19 good years on tour and I guess Ive got another couple coming,Ž Poulter said. I think Ive got some good golf left in me. I think I proved it this week. So theres life in the old dog yet.Ž Hossler did everything right until the playoff. His four straight birdies included a 30-footer on the par-3 14th to tie for the lead, and a wedge that settled 4 feet below the hole that gave him the lead with three to play. I said yesterday I wanted to beat these guys at their best and I think I saw Ians best today,Ž Hossler said. Its a bummer, but Im very proud of the way I played.Ž Jordan Spieth closed with a 66 and tied for third with Emiliano Grillo (68), giving Spieth momentum for the Masters. It was Spieths best finish against a full field since he tied for second in the Dell Technologies Championship outside Boston in September. Goal accomplished for the week,Ž Spieth said. Ive made some big strides from my last couple tournaments. Im very excited for what next week holds.ŽGOLF: Houston OpenPoulter delivers to win Houston OpenAP PHOTOIan Poulter hits his third shot on the 13th hole during the third round of the Houston Open, Saturday in Humble, Texas. lefty Jose Alvarado, who got out of the jam with the help of Wendles stop and throw at second. Rookie Yonny Chirinos made his major-league debut in the sixth. He struck out Blake Swihart, the first batter he faced, walked Holt, hit Betts to load the bases then allowed the hit to Devers that scored only the one run. It was otherwise a solid debut for Chirinos. He pitched four innings and allowed one hit. But the appearance took him out of the running to start Monday, when the Rays will employ their second bullpen day of the season and second in three games. After the game, they announced that Austin Pruitt would start. Matt Andriese will also be available. Boston starter Hector Velazquez pitched 5 2/ 3 innings. He allowed five hits and struck out five and allowed the run on Millers homer.RAYSFrom Page 1fifth-set victory over Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon in 2010. He possesses perhaps the games biggest serve but has never reached a Grand Slam semifinal, largely because a lack of mobility makes it difficult for him to stay in rallies. The string of victories on Key Biscayne surprised even him because he arrived with a record of 1-6 this year, including losses to players with rankings of 60, 62, 78 and 91. I couldnt have scripted this,Ž Isner said. I was playing very poorly. But thats the way tennis goes. You gain a little confidence, and things start to roll your way.Ž He played an almost flawless semifinal to beat Juan Martin del Potro, and was just good enough against the fourth-seeded Zverev, a precocious 20-year-old German who was bidding for his third Masters 1000 title in the past 12 months. The Key Biscayne finale drew a nearcapacity crowd, and the atmosphere was electrifying at times. When Isner hit a forehand winner during a tense final game of the second set, he whirled his index finger as he looked around at the roaring crowd, coaxing the decibel level still higher. Two points later, when Zverev won a wild exchange with both players at the net, he waved both arms toward the stands, inspiring another crescendo from the fans. Isners serve allowed him to overcome inconsistent returning, a succession of botched volleys and shaky play at crunch time. He converted only two of 12 break-point chances and lost his final three service points in the tiebreaker. But he gave Zverev only three break-point chances, and Isners serve was at its best down the stretch. He made 83 percent of his first serves in the final set. Meanwhile, baseline errors by Zverev mounted. I think I missed more shots today than I did in the whole tournament,Ž the young German said. I played bad from the baseline, but its not easy against John. You always feel the pressure that if you get broken, you might lose the set.Ž Mindful of that small margin for error when he lost serve to fall behind 5-4 in the final set, Zverev let his frustration boil over. He slammed his racket to the concrete, picked it up and slammed it again, and then tossed it gently to the stands as a mangled souvenir. When Isner sealed the victory four points later, he also tossed his racket „ but in celebration. Then it was time to dance.ISNERFrom Page 1AP PHOTOJohn Isner returns to Alexander Zverev, of Russia, during the final at the Miami Open tennis tournament, Sunday.
