INSIDECALL US AT941-206-1000THE SUNCHARLOTTE „ ENGLEWOOD „ NORTH PORTThe Florida Department of Corrections is considering a change to inmate visitation schedules which would cut visits in half. Families and friends would be able to visit their loved ones only every other weekend, instead of every weekend like the current schedule allows. Inmates with odd-numbered DOC numbers would be allowed visits one weekend, and even numbered inmates would be allowed visits the next weekend. At a public hearing last Tuesday, prisoners friends and family were invited to comment on the change at a public hearing in Tallahassee. The majority of commenters were mothers, wives and girlfriends of inmates who opposed the changes, according to Department staff. According to FDC spokesperson Michelle Glady, the proposed change is due to staf“ng shortages and an increase in contraband at Department facilities. With the combination of the staf“ng and the amount of visitors coming every weekend, it will allow us to more appropriately staff the visitor parks and stop inmates from getting contraband through those visitor parks.Ž This will make it so we have less people coming each weekend, and the visitors can have a better experience,Ž Glady said. At the Charlotte Correctional Institution, south of Punta Gorda, 2,471 individuals visited the prison 8,821 times. Out of those, two visitors were arrested for the introduction of contraband into the facility. One was arrested for heroin, narcotic pills, and drug paraphernalia, while the other was arrested for bringing cellphones and cellphone Department of Corrections weighs visitation changesBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER VISITATION | 5I recently met a bigwig who said to me, Just call me Jimmy.Ž His Dad is Big Jimmy. His son is Jimmy Theo. His nephew is Little Jimmy. He is Baby Jimmy. Thats my kind of family. Our Jimmy grew up with three older brothers. All four brothers were raised by parents who didnt believe in giving a kid an allowance. The four boys could certainly have money, but by earning money working in the family restaurant. From busing tables to the bakery, a 10-year-old boy grew up learning the relationship between hard work and money Their restaurant, Capt. Andersons, located in Panama City, is an oldstyle Florida restaurant. Great restaurateurs, like Jimmys family, know that employees and customers are part of extended family. Multiple generations of employees have other family members among the 200 employees. During the long, hot, busy summer months in Panama City, customers often bring in three generations to share a family meal. People propose to their loved ones, celebrate birthdays and share some of their most intimate celebrations at Capt. Andersons. Everyone is part of Jimmys extended family.

Jacobs wasnt ready to say goodbye to her 19-year-old. On Saturday, Samual Jacobs, who didnt get much sleep the night before, stood at the podium before her four adult children, the rest of the family and hundreds of friends at New Hope Church in North Port. Speaking through tears, she thanked everyone who loved Sam. Im heartbroken,Ž she said. Sam was the last one born. He was the baby. He always got his way. He was the only one I didnt need an epidural with.Ž The crying crowd laughed for a second. She said her family had said so much. It was hard for her to continue as she wasnt ready for Sams life to end. Sams twin sisters Mikayla and Mackenzie also told stories about their baby brother.

Eventually John got on Vivitrol shots, and hes now “ve years sober. Hes the president of the ARCHway Institute for Mental Health and Addictive Disorders. Dan serves as the chairman, and Jan is secretary. In nine states, they raise awareness, advocate for caregivers and addicts, and raise money to help pay for treatment and sober living facilities. Living in Punta Gorda since 2014, the Stuckeys have given about $30,000 in scholarships to help local individuals get into residential treatment or pay rent at a sober living facility. They do fundraisers and education, and continually get calls from people who dont know where to start “nding help for their loved ones. Its one of the biggest barriers to recovery, Stuckey said. DETOXDetox is often the “rst step in the recovery process, and the ARCHway Institute has donated $6,500 for the last three years to the Addiction Recovery Initiative, started by Sheriff Bill Prummell in 2016. The program allows anyone who wants to get clean to call the Sheriffs Of“ce, hand over their drugs, and get a free ride to the detox center at Charlotte Behavioral Healthcare. Hell take you to the treatment center, but if the person still cant pay for their treatment program, the money we give helps offset that,Ž Stuckey said. Insurance is accepted, but for those who dont have it, the cost for opioid detox is $245 for seven to 10 days, for those qualifying for a sliding scale fee, said CEO Victoria Scanlon. CBHC has 12 beds dedicated to detox, and patients can usually get in fairly quickly. Another option is Bayfront Punta Gorda, which started its detox program last March. The hospital has no speci“ed detox wing, so any available bed is open to detox patients, making the program especially discreet with all private rooms, said Community Liaison Kristen Anderson. The cost is $6,400 for patients paying out of pocket. Most insurances will cover the program, Anderson said, but patients may be responsible for a co-pay or Service providers offer help for addiction, though holes exist RECOVERYPath toBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER BOTTOM LINETreatment centers for drug and alcohol addiction are scarce in the region and an addicts inability to pay just complicates recovery.

SARASOTA „ The creation of a new zoning district for Sarasota County cleared its first hurdle Thursday, and now awaits action by the County Commission. By a unanimous vote, members of the county planning commission approved a request to create a new Boutique Resort Redevelopment/ Planned Development for inclusion in the countys zoning code. The request for the amendment to the code came as part of a rezoning request for a property owned by developer Henry Rodriquez along Stickney Point Road. The property contains an old, non-conforming hotel that Rodriquez wishes to improve, but the existing code prevents him from doing the redevelopment he envisions. The alternative for the neighborhood was worse than what we were trying to propose,Ž Rodriquez told the planning commissioners. I wanted to keep the integrity of the old Florida experience.Ž Thus, he and Bo Medred of Genesis Planning and Development, his planner for the project, came up with the idea of the new zoning district, which already exists in other jurisdictions in the state, such as the cities of St. Pete Beach and Hollywood. Were losing a lot of these old nostalgic hotels,Ž Medred added. According to a staff review of the petition, the new district ƒis designed to encourage the preservation and redevelopment of existing historic hotels and motels,Ž many of which are older, nonconforming uses. The analysis also found that improving these structures could be expensive. The new boutique district is what Rodriquez described as the birthchildŽ of the existing Tourist Resort district currently in the zoning code. However, that district, as noted by county staff, has not been utilized in more than 30 years. The creation of this district, along with the required rezone, would facilitate the redevelopment and modest expansion of these properties with boutique motel or hotel resort uses, which are smaller in size, limiting the number of rooms, and offering unique accommodations,Ž the staff report went on to state. With few questions and comments, planning commissioners appeared to welcome the new approach suggested by Rodriquez and Medred. This is a solution to a long-standing problem,Ž Commissioner Ron Cutsinger said. When it comes to giving more opportunities for diversity, its a good thing for the county,Ž Commissioner Robert Morris added. If approved by the County Commission at a later date, the new district would be included in the zoning coder and apply to the entire unincorporated area of the county.Email: jondaltonwr@gmail.comBoutique zoning district moves forwardBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTSarasota County Commission would have to OK new zone NORTH PORT „ City of“cials are looking to make the business community a little more welcoming in North Port. The North Port City Commission met Friday morning to discuss city fees, including the business tax fee. Mayor Vanessa Carusone was absent from the meeting. If we cant collect from everyone, than what sense does it make to collect (a fee) which in the big scheme of things is a very nominal collection,Ž Vice Mayor Linda Yates said. Why not be a business-friendly community? Do business here, youre not going to have the fees.Ž Last year the city gained $100,000 from the fee, which go to the Economic Development department. Commissioner Chris Hanks added the move could help other businesses come out of the woodwork. You might “nd more will register if they didnt have to pay a fee,Ž he said. Businesses operating within North Port are still required to register with the city, which has no cost. That is to protect our residents and make sure (contractors and businesses owners) are working within their con“nes,Ž said Katrina Romano, administration manager for Neighborhood Development Services. We do need to monitor that.Ž The City Commission also took a unanimous consensus for staff to communicate about the current business registry they have, in whatever means they have available. We have so much pride in our community that ”ows in the private sector,Ž Commissioner Jill Luke said. I see a big shout out to the community especially with their names being listed. There is so much value to it they will jump to get on that list as soon as possible.Ž The business tax would be pulled as of Oct. 1, when the new “scal year begins. Other fees were also discussed, with just one being raised. A culvert permit which is in the right-of-way is currently $200 and it is being raised $50. Keep in mind we took this over last year,Ž said Julie Bellia, Public Works director. Prior it was Neighborhood Development Services. Then when we took it over, we took a look at what we do; $160 of work goes to survey so what we have left is $40.Ž Several language changes were made to help residents better understand what they can and cannot do. For example, the teen roomŽ at the Morgan Center was added in the Achieve Anything membership bene“ts description. Rental fees for city structures had been a previous hot topic on the commission. However, due to Carusones absence and the length of the topic, the commission decided to put it on during a special meeting.

During their stay, patients receive medication to diminish withdrawal symptoms at both Bayfront Punta Gorda and CBHC. What happens upon discharge is up to the individual. The medical detoxi“cation process is, as I describe to patients, your “rst step in a long journey,Ž said Dr. Thomas Noone.NEXT STEPSPatients plans after detox vary based on their degree of dependence on their substance of choice, their employment and “nancial status, and available support network. For some individuals that may have employment and a lot of family support, they can participate in a detox program, and they can return home with therapy,Ž Scanlon said. But for many individuals, they are estranged from their family. They dont have jobs. They dont have homes to return to. Its hard to focus on your recovery when your next steps are so uncertain.Ž Patients requiring a high level of care may “nd dif“culty getting into a residential rehab program because of the lack of beds. Its a problem across the nation, Stuckey said. We “nd in many states, there can be as much as a six-month waiting list before you can get on the list,Ž he said. If youre in crisis mode, and you have a loved one thats “nally ready to get help, six months is not acceptable.Ž CBHC provides four beds for residential rehab patients for up to 28 days. Priority is given to pregnant drug users, individuals involved with the Department of Children and Families, and injecting drug users. There is almost always a wait, according to Scanlon. Typically, its weeks, and a lot of times individuals move on to other options because they have more immediate needs than that,Ž she said. The ARCHway Institute has sent a number of people out of state to get treatment. Sometimes, moving away may be the best option. A lot of times you want to get them treatment in the area so they keep their jobs and stuff, but a lot of times people need to just totally change their playmates and their playground,Ž Stuckey said. We have moved a number of people to Missouri or to Ohio to help in those cases where they just needed a whole new change.Ž Another area the region is lacking in is structured aftercare, Stuckey said. In Charlotte County, there are no licensed sober living homes. John Stuckey now runs seven sober houses in St. Louis in addition to his work with ARCHway and said sober living is instrumental in preventing relapse. Sober living is kind of threefold,Ž he said. They tell you to change your people, places and things. A lot of people coming out of treatment just dont have the support or accessibility to change all those things. Sober living is a smooth path for people when theyre coming out of treatment because its a clean environ ment. It alleviates a lot of people from getting back into old patterns and environments. If youre still around the same people, youll inevitably do the same things.Ž ARCHway has helped some individuals “nd sober living in Fort Myers, such as with Dana Herrera, who runs New Life Sober Living in Fort Myers. Herrera currently has four women living at her home, two from Florida and two from out of state. When they go to treatment and then go home, everyone at home is still the same, and everyone at home expects them to be the way they used to be or to be perfect,Ž she said. If you leave treatment and go back to the same environment, nothing has changed over there.Ž To stay in the house, the women must work or volunteer, or attend an intensive outpatient program. They have to have a job,Ž she said. If for some reason, theyre on disability, I would make them do some type of volunteer work, whether sitting at a desk or volunteering for ARCHway. Sitting at home doing nothing is just going to make you relapse.ŽOUTPATIENT SERVICESOutpatient services help addicts learn new coping skills and, if necessary, receive medication assisted treatment. Locally, Vivitrol programs are available at Coastal Behavioral Healthcare and First Step of Sarasota to help reduce cravings for opioids. Intensive outpatient services are another option for those needing more structure. At LifeWorks in Port Charlotte, patients in intensive outpatient spend at least nine clinical hours a week in treatment. The program can be good those coming directly out of residential treatment, said Operations Manager George Filhour. A lot of them come out of the bubble, and life hits them in the face,Ž he said. Thats why we always recommend if someones in residential they continue their care no less than three months.Ž Bayfront Punta Gorda also offers an evening intensive outpatient program for individuals with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health issues. Lighthouse Addiction Services offers a similar concentrated outpatient education program, in which individuals do one individual therapy session a week, one drug test a week, and two days of group therapy. It allows them to have a job, but at the same time, have a lot of contact with us to monitor their sobriety,Ž said Clinical Director Pamela Taylor. Throughout the region, outpatient providers try to eliminate barriers to recovery, such as transportation and being unable to take time off work. At Coastal Behavioral Healthcare, therapists working in the Journey program for children with substance abuse issues meet patients at their schools and homes throughout Sarasota County to eliminate the transportation barrier. At Tri County Counseling in North Port, Port Charlotte, and Nokomis, doors stay open into the evening to accommodate patients who cant take time off work to come to counseling. Because of that, patients come from all over the area „ Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto, and even Manatee County. When we moved to North Port, it was primarily a blue collar town,Ž said Dr. Thomas Glaser. They would lose a whole day (driving), and I never felt good about that. Well work up to 9 at night if necessary.Ž Still, even the stigma of substance abuse can be a major barrier preventing people from asking for help. Dr. Brendan McCollum, interim director of Outpatient Clinical Services at Coastal Behavioral Healthcare, said thats one thing hed like to see change. A lot of people view substance abuse as a character ”aw or a defect,Ž he said. Studies have shown people with a propensity for addiction have a humongous difference in their brain activity than a person whos not.ŽEmail: aeasker@sun-herald.com RECOVERYFROM PAGE 1 during the good times and bad. No matter how much we would “ght, he would always make a dumb face and make me laugh.

No matter what happened, I always loved you.Ž Sams big brother Shawn said he was the closest to him and called him gifted in many ways. He called himself a funcle „ a fun uncle to his nieces and nephews,Ž Shawn said. You are a hero of your own caliber „ a warrior.Ž Sams brother and sisters struggled with talking about his sudden passing. On Easter, without signs or warnings, the 2017 North Port High School graduate took his own life. I will not pretend that everyone is shocked and grieved by Sams suicide or the timing of his death,Ž Eddie DeJesus, pastor of New Hope Church told the crowd. Its an inexplicable and terrible act which leaves so many saying if I only has said something. Why did he make this decision that is tragic beyond comprehension? For some there is anger because we have been left behind without answers. For others theres guilt that they didnt see the signs and are left asking why? What drove him to this terrible decision? For those who thought they knew him so well, they struggle that they didnt know the pain that Sam could have been suffering for weeks, months or years and why didnt he ask for help?Ž DeJesus said theres been too many memorials of young people whove died by suicide. Suicide is an irreversible attempt to end our pain,Ž he said. God didnt want it to happen to Sam. What he wants is for us to understand that Gods grace is suf“cient. God loved Sam when he was born. God loved Sam when he was baptized. God loved Sam all of the days of his life, even when it was dark. Gods love is still with him.Ž Monte, Sams dad, spoke to those who were part of his upbringing in Sarasota and North Port. Sam knows how to ride a bike because of some of you in the audience,Ž he said. Sam knows how to play ”ag football. Sam knows how to take care of his dogs. Sam knows how to block a pitch in the dirt. Sam knows how to tackle. Sam knows how to get hit by a guy twice his size. Sam knows how to catch a shark. Sam knows how to be a coach. Sam knows how to make people laugh. Sam knows how to stand on a stage and sing a song. Sam accomplished a goal to become a “re“ghter. He knows how to save a life. He knows how to be a son, brother, grandson, uncle and now I know for sure how proud I am of him and how much all of you loved him.Ž Sams stepdad David Garofalo cried through his recollection of the time they spent together. I met Sam when he was 12 years old,Ž he said. He helped me understand what it was to raise a teenage boy. He was an amazing, talented, precious young man. He was a giver. Ive spoke to so many young people this week who said they instantly loved you Sam.Ž Instead of Sam becoming an actor, he wanted to follow in Garofalos footsteps and become a “re“ghter/EMT. For decades, Garofalo worked in Pasco County as a “re captain. Sam went to the Sarasota County Technical Institute “re training program as a high school junior. He did well on his state tests and ready to become a “rst responder in a big city. Instead of him wanting to work somewhere close like North Port, Sam was willing to go an hour and a half to Pasco to work for the “re“ghter department,Ž Garofalo said. Its the highest honor you bestowed on me.Ž Sadly, Sam was to begin his service with the department in two weeks. Honor guards from North Port and Pasco and other “rst responders were at Sams Celebration of Life Saturday. Im not sure how at 19-years-old you have been called to serve in heaven than on earth, but I know you are with God,Ž Garofalo said. You serve as our guardian angel and will be sorely missed.Ž Garofalos daughter Theresa sang a song for Sam „ youre gonna miss me when Im gone.Ž Before the service ended DeJesus told the crowd there are pastors available at the church, 5600 Biscayne Drive, to talk to anyone who is suffering. God does not want us to go through this alone,Ž he said. We can ask for help.

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 you are in the restaurant business you are on automatic programming to deliver happiness to customers, or to solve their problems as quick as possible. Serving customers good food with a great experience is a cherished type of public service. Its too bad more restaurant owners dont go to Tallahassee and serve us in government the way our Jimmy did. With that hint about Tallahassee youve probably guessed this column is about Jimmy Patronis. Be honest, without looking at Google. Did you know that my new acquaintance, Jimmy Patronis, is the incumbent chief “nancial of“cer of the state of Florida and carries a badge? Be honest. Did you know that the states chief “nancial of“cer is the states business manager, “re marshal, arson investigator, head of unclaimed property, trustee for the states real estate, leads hurricane response efforts, manages the states insurance and resolves insurance fraud? Visit the lost and found for unclaimed property at www. ”treasurehunt.gov. A local consumer received a life insurance payout they didnt even know existed. Over $200 million since July 1 has been returned to its rightful owner by Jimmy. In February, he returned more than $27.6 million; breaking the 57-year monthly record. Jimmys team successfully prosecuted more than 451 people for insurance fraud in the last year. Requested restitution was over $47 million. As the state “re marshal, Jimmys team oversees the “rst boots on the ground to save lives after a hurricane. Jimmy would like you to know that eight people died during Irma because they wanted to make sure no one stole their portable generator. A portable generator inside your house creates carbon monoxide and can kill you. Previously, our “rst responders were not eligible for workers compensation if they incur PTSD „ Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. First responders see horri“c images and our “re“ghters alone have “ve times the suicide rate as the rest of the country. Plus, they are macho and dont want to show weakness. In his “rst six months on the job, Jimmy fought to have our “rst responders PTSD covered. Fortunately, our Legislature worked with Jimmy and unanimously passed a bill to cover our “rst responders PTSD this last session. Its a long way from busboy to chief “nancial of“cer of the state of Florida. But please, still call him Jimmy. Share your thoughts.

A town springs up, money ”ows and eventually folly brings it all down. Few are they who run for public of“ce with altruistic motives. We the people are for the most part a rather self-deprecating lot and politicians bank on it. The Punta Gorda City Council and city manager are no worse or better than any other government entity in Florida. Developers eye public lands and the duly elected eye on opportunity to paint their wagons. The president is “ghting for the economy and thinks America has been an economic Chinese vassal long enough. I dont think the people understand what is at stake or that they care one way or the other. It is irresponsible for the press to engage in yellow journalism and tabloid sensationalism. But shouldnt the political parties be held to a higher standard? Democrats, a party in search of a purpose, are now coming to the aid of a beleaguered porn star and I assume pornography in general. They have thrown down the gauntlet in their perceived defense of womanhood. You cant make this stuff up. Democratic liberals in the 1960s was one thing, but now all they do is in”ame emotions, making mountains out of mole hills because they are now rebels without a cause. Why not grow up to todays world and stop living in the past?Larry Bierma Punta GordaEditor: I totally agree with Trump that we should make America great again. However, I suspect we dont agree on what it is that makes us great. For many years, America has enjoyed the respect, the envy and the admiration of a large portion of the worlds population. There are two Editor: Just read todays editorial letter titled, Shift students, not clocks.Ž What a fabulous concept that would bene“t everyone. The writer asked why not just use common sense?Ž Another fabulous concept, to be sure. A response to that question could be found by Googling, Obituary: The sad passing of common sense.Ž Sincere gratitude to the writer who proved, with each valid point made, that common sense still does exist today. Joyce Robbins Port CharlotteEditor: The new state law clari“es the rules of public beach vs. private beach and it makes it consistent throughout the state. It is pretty simple. Wet sand is public, dry sand is private. Here in Englewood, we have a large amount of public beaches, where both wet and dry sand is open to the public. There are those who will feel that something is being taken away but in reality the dry sand in front of private property has always belonged to the landowners. Before this law, those landowners were on their own when it came to protecting their beach front or enforcing their rights. The public is not known for its restraint or respectfulness, often vastly overstepping their beach privileges. The clari“cation will help law enforcement Editor: Recently, you ran a series of articles including one that said: Floridians are the worst drivers in the nation.Ž That prompts me to ask, just who or what do you consider to be a Floridian?Ž As a sixth generation real Floridian I can tell you that by far, most of the drivers on the roads in Florida are not Floridians but rather transplants and/or simply residents or tourists. Only three of every 10 people in the state are actually Floridians. It is a term that is used very loosely much the same as the term native,Ž which some folks use to describe anyone living in the state. So keep this in mind. You can whine and complain about the drivers around you, but most likely they came from up north, just like you did.Dutch Blaisdell Brunswick, Ga.Editor: With all the negative letters to the editors lately, how about some good news? The local Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte branch of the American Association of University women has awarded scholarships to over 70 different women since 1977. The applications are available for the 2018 scholarships at the “nancial aid of“ces at FGCU, Florida SouthWestern State College and FSC in Venice. The applicants must be residents of Charlotte County, be enrolled in an accredited degree program and have gone back to school after an interruption in their college plans. The three scholarships are for $1,000 each. Applications must be into AAUW by April 8. If there are any questions, call scholarship chairperson Kathleen Campanirio at 508-878-9160. We want to get the word out so more women may have an opportunity to apply. We are the same organization that is sponsoring three girls for STEM Camp this year and provide STEM programs at the local library. Kathleen Campanirio Port CharlotteProcess should matter in county, Sunseeker dealOUR POSITION: We are concerned with the haste the Charlotte County Commission is proceeding regarding the Sunseeker Resort and the seeming lack of attention to public concerns or the Charlotte Harbor CRA.Time is money. That old axiom is true for the proposed Sunseeker Resort, thus the speedy actions of the Charlotte County Commission to accommodate the developers of this mega project. We certainly understand that. Too much foot dragging could kill the deal and Charlotte County might lose a golden goose. Sunseeker Resort will alter the face of Charlotte County and have a powerful impact on the landscape of Charlotte Harbor. It is a game-changer in the most dramatic sense. It is with that understanding „ and the realization that there is no turning back once deals are “nalized „ we caution the County Commission to take a deep breath and make sure it is making the best deal possible. Things have moved amazingly quick for a project of this magnitude „ and that “ts the personality of the man driving the development, Allegiant President John Redmond. The man who bought up the waterfront land and who has wooed the county staff is on a mission. Every day the resort is not open is money lost. Redmond is a sharp businessman and he has been open about his desire to move things along quickly „ promising stakeholders and potential owners of condos in the swanky resort that it will be open early in 2020 at the latest. We wish Remond the best. The sooner the resort is open, the better for Charlotte County. The warp-speed actions of the county, however, leave us a little dizzy. And, while negative reaction from the public has been limited to mostly letters to the editor, county commissioners dismissed concerns of the CRA advisory board almost to the point of disrespect. Certainly, the county is not obligated to make policy based on the CRA boards wishes. Still, it would be polite, if nothing else, to have given the boards concerns a fair listen. As one CRA member said, the process matters,Ž and the county has skirted the process „ especially with the CRA „ without a lot of explanation why. The 30-day window that was used to agree to the deal on the original resort and the additional acreage on the east side of U.S. 41 that Allegiant is also considering, were inadequate to allow other developers or the public to truly digest the proposal and all the details „ and there are many details, some yet to be worked out. The county will argue that if other developers were interested, they certainly kept that interest to themselves „ especially in the case of the 4.5-acre site on the opposite side of U.S. 41 as Sunseeker. As much as the county „ and we „ want the Sunseeker resort, there should be caution taken at what we are giving up. Streets are being vacated; the zoning density cap eliminated and allowances have been made to count condos at Sunseeker as motel rooms to lower impact fees (which already are too low in our opinion). The county has a lot of skin in this game „ as does Redmond and Allegiant. It has been a cordial working relationship that has paid dividends to both sides. County commissioners must be alert, however, that they are making the best deal possible and securing their investment in the future. reasons why we deserved that response. America was real. You could count on America to live up to its commitments and promises. You could count on America to be willing to help to make things better. America didnt change its mind every other week depending upon the whims of a few. You could trust, respect, and believe in what America said. America cared. There are millions of people alive in the world today because America was willing to live up to its basic principles of offering compassion, love, and co-operation. America didnt say we will respect and live up to our principles only after we become great. America didnt say our principles are conditional and reserved to only the selected few who we have judged worthy. We have lost a lot. I defy you to name more than one ally who respects, envies, and/ or admires us more now than a year ago. It will take a lot of work to earn back the respect weve lost. We need to reject isolation. We need to regain our rightful place on the world stage. Lets make America real and caring again.John Murray Port Charlotteas well. It will be clear whether or not someone is trespassing. Ultimately, the choice is left to the property owner. They dont have to restrict access to dry sand but they can if they wish. This is a great step toward protecting nesting turtles, an added bonus if you will. It does bring into question about who pays for beach renourishment. Public funds for wet sand, private funds for dry sand? In places where there is erosion to the face of the building or close to it, all the sand is wet. Once it is renourished (with public funds) it will be dry sand for some distance and therefore it will be private. This creates an interesting conundrum.Gladys Marsh Englewood Marching children were hypocritesEditor: Children, listen up. Do you know the meaning of hypocrisy? It means insincere or hollow. Your March for Our LivesŽ was your cry for school safety, or at least I thought so. You think the Second Amendment is a bad law. You want restriction placed on the right to bear arms. You feel that would keep you safe. Heres the hypocrisy part, if you were truly concerned about your own safety, you would welcome a rule requiring clear backpacks. But you dont like that rule, do you? It infringes on your constitutional rights, you say. Critical thinking is necessary to understand that constitutional rights belong to everyone, not just you. I think some serious civics education is in order. We, as Americans have rights. This is a free country. As long as people can move about freely and are not subject to undue government interference or restriction, there could be danger. But, taking away freedoms is a slippery slope. And, the fact of the matter is that the Constitution and the Fourth Amendment covering unreasonable search and seizure.Ž That means they cant search your backpack without a reason. It does not say that the school cannot require clear backpacks or ban backpacks altogether. And it doesnt say that school cant have rules. They have lots of them and we should be glad they do.Alice Vann Englewood

He is a graduate of Florida International University law school but cannot vote in his home state because his path went through prison: He committed non-violent felonies concerning drugs and other matters during the 10 years when he was essentially homeless. And Florida is one of 11 states that effectively disqualify felons permanently. Meade is one of 1.6 million disenfranchised Florida felons „ more people than voted in 22 states in 2016. He is one of the 20 percent of African-American Floridians disenfranchised. The state has a low threshold for felonious acts: Someone who gets into a bar “ght, or steals property worth $300 „ approximately two pairs of Air Jordans „ or even drives without a license for a third time can be disenfranchised for life. There is a cumbersome, protracted process whereby an individual, after waiting “ve to seven years (it depends on the felony) can begin a trek that can consume 10 years and culminates with politicians and their appointees deciding who can vote. Meade heads the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, which gathered more than a million signatures to get the state Supreme Court to approve, and local supervisors of elections to verify, the ballot initiative that voters will decide on Nov. 6. Meades basic argument on behalf of what he calls returning citizensŽ like him is: I challenge people to say that they never want to be forgiven for anything theyve done.Ž Persons convicted of murder or felony sexual offense would not be eligible for enfranchisement. Intelligent and informed people of good will can strenuously disagree about the wisdom of policies that have produced mass incarceration. What is, however, indisputable is that this phenomenon creates an enormous problem of facilitating the re-entry into society of released prisoners who were not improved by the experience of incarceration and who face discouraging impediments to employment and other facets of social normality. In 14 states and the District of Columbia, released felons automatically recover their civil rights. Recidivism among Floridas released felons has been approximately 30 percent for the “ve years 2011-2015. Of the 1,952 persons whose civil rights were restored, “ve committed new offenses, a recidivism rate of 0.4 percent. This sample is skewed by self-selection „ overrepresentation of those who had the “nancial resources and tenacity to navigate the complex restoration process that each year serves a few hundred of the 1.6 million. Still, the recidivism numbers are suggestive. What compelling government interest is served by felon disenfranchisement? Enhanced public safety? How? Is it to “ne-tune the quality of the electorate? This is not a legitimate government objective for elected of“cials to pursue. A felony conviction is an indelible stain: What intelligent purpose is served by reminding felons, who really do not require reminding, of their past, and by advertising it to their community? The rule of law requires punishments, but it is not served by punishments that never end and that perpetuate a social stigma and a sense of never fully re-entering the community. Meade, like one-third of the 4.7 million current citizens nationwide who have re-entered society from prison but cannot vote, is African-American. More than one in 13 African-Americans nationally are similarly disenfranchised, as are one in “ve of Floridas AfricanAmerican adults. Because African-Americans overwhelmingly vote Democratic, ending the disenfranchisement of felons could become yet another debate swamped by partisanship, particularly in Florida, the largest swing state, where close elections are common: Republican Governor Rick Scotts margins of victory in 2010 and 2014 were 1.2 and 1.1 percent, respectively. And remember the 537 Florida votes that made George W. Bush president. Last week, Scotts administration challenged a federal judges order that the state adopt a rights-restoration procedure that is less arbitrary and dilatory. A Quinnipiac poll shows that 67 percent of Floridians favor and only 27 percent oppose enfranchisement of felons. These numbers might provoke Republicans, who control both houses of the legislature, to try to siphon away support for the restoration referendum by passing a law that somewhat mitigates the severity of the current policy. Such a law would be presented for the signature of the governor, who is trying to unseat three-term Democratic senator Bill Nelson. Again, who is comfortable with elected politicians winnowing the electorate? When the voting results from around the nation are reported on the evening of Nov. 6, some actual winners might include 1.6 million Floridians who were not allowed to cast ballots. George Wills email address is georgewill@ washpost.com.Government interest of disenfranchised felons George Will Have you ever seen the moon? You will likely answer that you have, many times. But a new short video by “lmmakers Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh may have you reconsidering whether youve ever actually seen it at all. Their names will be unfamiliar to you. A check of the authoritative IMDb website turns up resumes thin to the point of translucence. Overstreet, for example, is listed as Miscellaneous CrewŽ on Taking Chance,Ž a 2009 “lm starring Kevin Bacon. Gorosh has directed two short “lms, The Electronic AfterlifeŽ and To Scale: The Solar System,Ž neither of which generated Oscar buzz. But their three-minute “lm, A New View of the MoonŽ has people talking „ and looking, having racked up over a quarter of a million views on YouTube alone. The premise is deceptively simple. The pair wandered around Los Angeles with a telescope, an odd-looking (to us nonscienti“c types, anyway) contraption vaguely resembling a snare drum that slides up from a round canister. What is that, bro?Ž a guy on a bike asks. Its a telescope,Ž says Overstreet. Do you want to check out the moon?Ž The offer is made over and over to a cross section of passersby in a cross section of places across greater L.A. And one by one, they put their eyes to the view“nder and gaze upon what theyve looked at a million times yet never seen. Interestingly, Overstreet and Gorosh show us very little of the actual moon. No, what holds your eyes, and lifts your soul is the way these different people in different neighborhoods all respond in precisely the same way „ with gasps and shouts and whispers of naked wonder at the sudden nearness of lunar soil. Im looking at the moon,Ž says a young, cap-to-the-back white guy into his phone. Hold on real quick.Ž Then he puts his eye to the view“nder. Oh, my God,Ž he says. Oh. My. God,Ž breathes a black man in a hoodie. Oh, my God,Ž says a little kid, laughing. Oh, my God,Ž says a guy with a mane of gray hair. Oh!Ž says a woman, as if startled. Oh, my God.Ž There is something quietly profound in their awe, something that stirs you somewhere deep within like a light breeze moving among tall grass. If you are a person of faith, maybe you have that sense of settled and centered peace that comes from feeling the Creator nigh. But even if you are not, it will be hard to escape a conviction that we spend too much time looking down and across. We look at our screens and bank balances, at our bills and test results „ and we look at one another, too, at all the ways in which skin tone and hair texture, faith, sex, wealth, geography, education and age seem to make us unfathomably different. Except that were all just passengers on a rock sailing through an in“nite sea. Consider that the greatest scienti“c achievement of our kind, the one we point to with pride as evidence of the inherent greatness of us, is that after millions of years, and at a steep investment of money and lives, we managed, one day 49 years ago, to ”y over to the next rock. We looked around, gathered up some smaller rocks and came back home. We are, in other words, small against the fabric of All That Is. So far as weve been able to determine, were out here alone. So each other is all we have. But then, it should be all we need. Overstreets and Goroshs little movie is a gentle reminder of this, a hymn to our common humanity. It is an invitation to put down the remote control once in a while. Put down the cellphone, put down the bills, stop yelling at one other. And look up.

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 8, 2018 LOCAL SPORTSNORTH PORT „ South Gwinnett rallied with five runs in the top of the sixth inning for a come from behind 8-5 victory over North Port Friday night. The visitors from Georgia completed a three-game sweep of their spring break trip to the west coast of Florida with the late outburst after the Bobcats carried a 4-2 lead into the sixth inning. They came out swinging tonight,Ž North Port coach Miles Mayer said. They put the ball in play and good things happened for them. Tip your cap to them.Ž The Comets (14-10) scored single runs in the first and third innings to take an early 2-0 lead, but the Bobcats got to South Gwinnett starter Cole Thompkins in the bottom of the third. North Port loaded the bases on two hit batsmen and a walk before the first run scored on a wild pitch. Charlie Davidson then beat out an infield single to drive in the tying run, and the Bobcats pulled off a double steal to score the third as courtesy runner Nic Caster broke for second and Brandon Corso raced home from third on the throw. Levi Byrd replaced Thompkins on the mound, and Colby Chippendale drove a 3-2 pitch into the gap in left center for a double, scoring Caster to make it 4-2. North Port starter Davidson kept the Comets off the scoreboard until the top of the sixth. With one out, Davidson hit Andreaus Lewis with a pitch, gave up a single to Bailey Shannon, and walked Cabera Weaver to load the bases. After getting the second out at the plate on a ground ball to first, the Bobcat pitcher uncorked a wild pitch to allow a run to score to make it 4-3. Then, after Corey Lee drew a walk to reload the bases, cleanup hitter Marc Davis drilled a shot over the head of center fielder Corso for a bases-clearing double, giving the Comets a 6-4 lead. Byrd greeted reliever Logan Polston with another double to score Davis and make it 7-4. Its never good to give up free bases,Ž Mayer said. You try to preach to throw it around the strike zone but occasionally youll hit guys or walk guys.

The products of the bakery will be offered to the community in a bake sale of sorts, with all of the proceeds going to the Coalitions Culinary Training Program. The goal is to make enough income to support the culinary program,Ž said Alecia Cunningham, Director of Social Services at the Homeless Coalition. Though the course only calls for six to eight volunteers and is just being offered to shelter clients at the moment, the Coalition hopes word will get out and allow the Bountiful Bakery to grow. We hope to be baking holiday pies for Thanksgiving,Ž said Cunningham. The bakery was developed as a supplementary course for the Culinary Training Program, and furthers its students capabilities in the kitchen and grants more food-handling knowledge. Participants learn basic kitchen skills, sanitation skills, cleanliness, knife skills, equipment identi“cation, calibration of thermometer, and color coded board use,Ž said Cunningham. At the end of the culinary program, participants receive a Safe Staff certi“cation, making them candidates for restaurant work. The Culinary Training Program began in October of last year and currently has six graduates, as it can only enroll two people at a time. Right now we are only offering the program to our shelter residents. As we grow the program we hope to expand to the unsheltered,Ž said Cunningham. For those interested in supporting the Bountiful Bakery, the Coalition is currently accepting donations. We need your help to make it a success. We are in need for donations of: bread pans, brown sugar, eggs butter and coconut ”akes. We also are looking for volunteers that love to bake,Ž said an April 2 press release.

Question: I own my home free and clear in Punta Gorda. Ive outgrown it. My lender has pre-approved me for “nancing to buy a bigger home before selling this one. Im ready to make an offer, but I dont have a Realtor. I have been dealing directly with the listing agent. I am impressed by her professionalism and have been considering her to list my own home. My question is this: What are the pros or cons of using the same Realtor for both transactions? Answer: Assuming this Realtor has the qualities you need in a Realtor, I think its a great idea. By the way, thank you for including your phone number. That gave us the opportunity to drill much deeper into your si tuation with a single conversation rather than a dozen email exchanges. You should think of your Realtor like you would any other professional. The benefit of using the same doctor, CPA, attorney, etc., is that the better a professional understands the idiosyncrasies surrounding your personal situation, the better that professional can serve you. The resultant trust that develops from a good, working relationship is invaluable. In our conversation, you noted that this Realtor returns calls promptly, has a good reputation in your area, and has done an excellent job in marketing her listing with creative descriptions and professional-quality photos. You also noted that her listing, the one you hope to buy, is near your current home. Thats another plus because this proximity indicates the likelihood she is also familiar with your own market. I would be reluctant to recommend a buyer hire a Realtor when the Realtor is not familiar with the target areas. I am licensed to sell real estate anywhere in Florida. But when my son bought a home in Fort Myers, and again in Naples, I did whats best for him. I referred him to Realtors in those markets. On a different note, if your current home is homesteaded, and your new home will become your new primary residence, dont forget to transfer your homestead benefit from your old home to your new home. This is known as Save Our Homes Portability.Ž It can save you a fortune, but only if you file the appropriate paperwork with the county property appraiser before the deadline. My secret proof-readerThis week I found a letter in my mail box with no return address info. Inside was a recent column of mine that had been cut out. Circled in blue was the word there.Ž It should have said their.Ž There was also an anonymous note inside with the following (un-edited) question. Question (unedited) : When you are too ignorant to deal with a fourth grade grade grammar/ spelling problem it undermines your credibility. When you dont know the difference between their and there how can I trust that anything that follows in your column is just as ignorant? PLEASE! Find a fourth-grader to proof your columns. Answer: I have a confession for you. Had I written the same note you sent to me, it would have been riddled with far worse typos. I would have used a hyphen to replace fourth gradeŽ with fourth-grade.Ž I would have replaced grade gradeŽ with grade.Ž I would have replaced [the difference between their and there] with [the difference between theirŽ and thereŽ].

Page 14 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 8, 2018 Q: My house was built 2 feet into the utility easements. There is a utility pole with electric transmission wires 3 feet from the back of my house. If the pole should need to be replaced, would the utility company be able to place it in the same spot? „ William A: Yes, and you might have some other concerns. An easement is a legal term for when one landowner gives another party, often a utility company, the right to enter or use a portion of the property for a speci“c purpose. Common easements are for water pipes and electric poles. Most easements run with the land,Ž meaning that the easement will pass from one property owner to the next, and many people dont even realize they have easements crisscrossing their yard. In fact, the easement you are dealing with was probably granted several owners ago, before your house was even built. When part of a structure that is built on your land crosses an easement, it is called an encroachment because the structure is encroaching on the easement holders rights. Because easement holders have the right to use the space for their speci“c purpose, such as running power lines, they are able to enforce their right by making you remove the encroaching structure. Usually, this is not that big of a deal „ for example, if a fence or the corner of your pool deck is the encroaching structure. But because part of your house is doing the encroaching, this could be a big problem for you. The “rst thing to do is to make sure there really is an encroachment, and that it isnt a surveying mistake or an easement that was adjusted or removed when the house was built years ago. If the encroachment still exists, check your title insurance policy, since it will cover the cost of repairing an encroachment that was not found at the time you bought your home. Be aware, though, that encroachments are often found before closing, and excited homeowners waive coverage because they are eager to close and dont anticipate an issue, so your title policy may have a stated exception for this. If this is your case, and there is no coverage, you will need to try your best to try to work things out with the utility company. In my experience, the company will try its best to work with you on the issue. But in the end, if it cant be worked out, the power must run through. Gary M.

Pool Price BE FB HB Built Property Style Sold Terms Sold Date SP/SqFt SP/LP Ratio 8OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMESAlmost daily we wake up to news that another company, healthcare system, educational entity, or governmental agency has been hacked and the personal information of thousands or millions of us has been stolen. Although less newsworthy, nearly three-quarters or 73 percent of all Americans have been hacked or victimized by cybercrime, usually involving identity or monetary theft. To help you protect your identity and monetary assets, James Nelson identifies and describes online threats and what you can do to counter those digital perils in his class Overview of Internet Safety: Basic Cyber Defenses.Ž The class is set for 3-5 p.m. April 16 at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, in Punta Gorda. This is an introduction and overview for those seeking increased protection for their information while working online and is intended for individuals and small businesses,Ž Nelson said. Its a new class that I developed because participants in my Windows 10 and other computer classes were increasingly interested in Internet security. I was giving some attention to security at the end of those classes, but this class is all about protecting your identity and money.Ž Nelson is a Georgia Institute of Technology electrical engineering graduate who has worked for Raytheon and Bell Labs in their military cyber defense branches as well as the U.S. Navy securing its Global Information Grid. Today, Nelson teaches at Suncoast Technical College in Sarasota County and is recognized for explaining complex technical jargon in everyday language. Phishing, malware and spyware, keystroke loggers, ransomware, Wi-Fi router compromises, Bitcoin mining hijacks and bots are some of the threats examined in the class. Hell also explain the dark web and how it threatens your personal information and finances, Nelson said. These threats and others are seeking access to your personal information so the perpetrators can log in and empty your IRA or savings and checking accounts or run up your credit card, Nelson said. They also steal medical information to file fraudulent Medicare and other insurance claims, which is a big threat to Floridians, because of the states large senior population.Ž Ill talk about device security, search and internet practices and the differences between PC, Mac, Android and Apple devices,Ž Nelson said. Android is an open system, whereas Apple is a closed system, meaning it suffers fewer breaches.Ž In open systems like Android, When youre browsing, youll get results that havent been checked out, or youll be fooled by something that has Microsoft in the URL, for example, but its not really Microsoft. Ill show participants how to parse a URL, so they can determine who theyre really contacting,Ž Nelson said. Well also discuss device specific solutions like MacAfee, Norton, Windows Defender and Malwarebytes.Ž The dark web is used for illicit activities like human trafficking and illegal arms sales and for selling personal information. Its dark because its extralegal, meaning it may be legal in one country and illegal in another. The typical search algorithms, like Google, wont pick up the dark web. Instead, it uses long and involved URLs that are passed around privately, by interested parties, according to Nelson.

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 21 9 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMESENGLEWOOD „ Award-winning artist Enmanuel Maldonado is not at the Nautical Fest today. However, his oneof-a-kind “sh ceramic carvings are for sale at the local event. The Nicaragua-born ceramicist uses a unique San Juan de Oriente style to create each piece. Some have turtles, others have trout or seahorses. Each piece is arduous and complex to make. A small one can take three weeks,Ž said Ray Butler, who along with his wife Linda, sells Maldonados works at festivals throughout the east coast. The tall pieces can take four weeks to create. His pottery starts at $150 and up. Collectors like Enmanuels pieces because they are one-of-a-kind.Ž The Butlers, whose business is Earth And Seas, are elated to return to the Smithsonian with Enmanuel for the “ve-day Folk Life Festival. Its by invitation only,Ž Butler said. Enmanuels work will be on display. He will also be showing how he carves.Ž Butler also offers the unique pieces as trophies for “shing tournaments. Instead of getting a tall plastic trophy, the winner gets a hand-carved piece that took a long time to make and no one else has,Ž he said. This type of carving has been around for 2,600 years. Its very labor intensive. We like offering it to local residents who can appreciate his works.Ž The Butlers were one of several vendors at The Lemon Bay Sunrise Rotary Nautical Fest fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at the Englewood Elks property, 401 N. Indiana Avenue. Parking is free but admission is $4. Rachel Wells, manager of Riding the Waves at Skips Placida Marina, encourages anyone who loves the water to come sign up at her booth for two free seats and a gift basket package valued at $126. The response to this boat show has been fantastic,Ž she said. We have been able to tell people about the fun they can have on the water during our tour. People sit in what is like a two-seater powered Catamaran boat and we take them on tour. They can take pictures. We give them a cooler with ice and phone cases to protect their phones. They see dolphins, birds and other beautiful wildlife for an hour and a half. We can take up to 14 people at a time after we give them a quick lesson on how to operate the boat. Kids aged 14 and up can drive with an adult. Its a lot of fun for families.Ž Wells said the drawing will be during the event. On Saturday, Chuck Forrest stayed close to the Big Green Egg making sure the ribs were slow-cooked to perfection while talking to fellow Rotary club members. They joked about the ribs being the best on this side of the Mississippi River. Each plate comes with potato salad and cole slaw. Along with food, crafts, giveaways at the event, there are boats and other vehicles and equipment for sale from Ingman Marine, Quality Boats & Big Toy, Marine Max, Englewood Ford, York, Viage Group, Abels Marine, Mini Max, Quality Boats of Sarasota, Riding the Waves and mo re. Theres also jewelry, pub paintings, entertainment, hourly “shing seminars and nautical items for sale. Members of Boy Scout Troop 26 are selling digital entertainment books for $10. For each one sold, $5 goes to help a scout earn his way to Skymont Summer Camp in Tennessee. Rhonda Allegretto, three-year owner of Traveled Treasures, 1650 Lantana Ave. in Englewood, is selling a bevy of unique items under her tent at the festival today. You know the show American Pickers,Ž well thats what my husband Robert (Doughty) does; hes a picker,Ž she said. Thats why our stuff is unique because it comes from all over and theres generally only one of them.Ž Members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 87 are telling prospective boaters about an upcoming safety class from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 19 at the Elks Lodge. We go through everything from safe operation of a boat, markers, life jackets and small boat safety,Ž said Sandra Hahn, commander. People can sign up on the morning of the class.Ž Also at the festival, every hour, Fishin Frank and Waterline publisher Josh Olive will be leading “shing seminars today. They cover topics including where and how to “sh for freshwater bass, mullet, king mackerel, red “sh, grouper and snook. KIX Country Radio also has a live remote broadcast today.

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 23 11 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMESState auditors say Florida education officials blocked themTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) „ Florida state auditors are sharply criticizing the Department of Education for repeatedly blocking access to records and for not allowing auditors a chance to interview key department employees. The Florida Auditor General last month released a scathing audit that detailed numerous times when the department did not fully cooperate with an audit of a student loan program administered by the agency. The audit was “rst reported by Politico Florida. Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart defended the agency and said auditors had a misunderstandingŽ of the departments process. Stewart also contended that her department was not made aware that auditors had found something to justify this rare and unusual “nding.Ž Stewart works for a board appointed by Gov. Rick Scott. Auditors, however, disputed Stewarts assertion and said they repeatedly shared their concerns with top of“cials.Florida Gov. remains locked in legal battle over financesTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) „ Florida Gov. Rick Scott may soon run for the U.S. Senate, but he remains entrenched in an ongoing legal battle over whether he has sidestepped state laws that require him to fully disclose the extent of his vast personal wealth. Don Hinkle, a Tallahassee attorney, asked a state appeals court on Friday to let the case move ahead. Attorneys for the Republican governor are challenging a lower courts refusal to dismiss the lawsuit. Hinkle, who was a top fundraiser for former President Barack Obama, says Scott is taking extraordinary measuresŽ to avoid fully disclosing his “nances. Hinkle adds that if Scott runs for the U.S. Senate he will “nally have to disclose them anyway. Scott is expected to announce his candidacy on Monday. John Tupps, a spokesman for Scott, contends the lawsuit is a publicity stunt.ŽFlorida asks appeals court to put voting ruling on holdTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) „ Florida is asking a federal appeals court to put a voting rights ruling on hold. Attorney General Pam Bondi on Friday asked the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to place a stay on a decision made by U.S. District Judge Walker. Walker ruled Floridas current system of restoring voting rights to former prisoners is ”awed. He blocked the system of forcing ex-felons to wait at least “ve years before they can have the right to vote. Walker gave state of“cials until April 26 to create a new process. State of“cials appealed Walkers ruling. They asked the judge to set aside the April 26 deadline during the appeal but Walker refused and sharply criticized the state. John Tupps, a spokesman for Gov. Rick Scott, called Walkers actions recklessŽ and said thats why state of“cials were asking the appeals court to act.Man faces 30 years for shooting at deputiesFORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) „ A Florida man has been convicted of shooting at deputies. Court records show that 26-year-old Rones Sagesse was found guilty this week of two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement of“cer. He faces up to 30 years in prison at an April 16 sentencing. Authorities say Lee County deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at a Fort Myers home in November 2016. As deputies approached a house, Sagesse was sitting outside and opened “re. One of the deputies returned “re, hitting Sagesse in the leg. Sagesse ”ed but was later captured after the sheriffs of“ce called in K-9s and helicopters to search the area. Of“cials say the gun that Sagesse “red at the deputies was later found behind a shed.Authorities reopen stretch of Interstate 95 in FloridaPORT ORANGE, Fla. (AP) „ The Florida Highway Patrol is reopening a major Florida highway after it was closed overnight due to wild“res. Troopers shut down a roughly “ve-mile stretch of Interstate 95 in Volusia County on Friday. The road was shut down to a brush “re that was causing smoke and visibility problems along the road that runs along the eastern coast of the state. Lt. Kim Montes with the Florida Highway Patrol said Saturday that drivers still need to use caution in the area and that troopers will continue to monitor conditions.Man gets 10+ years for stealing from city of Miami BeachMIAMI (AP) „ A New York man has been sentenced to 10 years and four months in prison for stealing $3.5 million from a Florida city to buy sports tickets and resell them online. Court records show 45-year-old David Miller of Syracuse, New York, was sentenced Friday. He must also pay nearly $1.6 million in restitution. He previously pleaded guilty to bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. Authorities say Miller stole the money from Miami Beach in 2016 using a stolen identity and bank information. He bought approximately 157 seat licenses at NFL stadiums around the country. He also used stolen funds to buy season and individual game tickets at NFL games and other sporting events.

Humane Societies in Southwest Florida “nd themselves in a unique but not welcomed situation. As the number of volunteers decrease (almost 50 percent), the number of homeless animals coming into our shelters increase (again almost 50 percent.) In seasonŽ means something entirely different to dogs and cats, especially in the spring and summer. If you would like to help homeless animals “nd permanent loving homes, now is the time. If you want to help enrich the lives of the many animals waiting to be adopted, Suncoast Humane Society would welcome your enthusiasm. Jackie Elliott, Volunteer Services Manager says, You will “nd volunteering both fun and rewarding. It is exciting to be volunteering alongside people with the same passion as yours. We realize that you can volunteer elsewhere with many wonderful and important nonpro“t organizations, however, if you are an animal lover, and want to help us reduce the number of homeless animals, and improve the quality of life, we may be the “x you need.Ž There are many varied and rewarding volunteer opportunities available, such as dog walking, cat cuddling, foster parenting, customer service, laundry specialist and clerical/ of“ce support. Volunteers also help with fundraising projects and events, including our three thrift stores. The pet therapy program welcomes those who meet the quali“cations with appropriately trained pets. Dog walking and cat cuddling help to keep the shelter animals socialized and exercised while they await that special home. These positions give the volunteer hands-on experience with the animals. Our Foster Home Program also allows direct contact with the animals. These volunteers provide special, at-home care, for sick, injured and under-aged animals, helping to restore their health and well-being while preparing them for adoption. If you would like to help welcome some of the 15,000 annual visitors to Suncoast Humane Societys Adoption Center and Preventive Health Care Clinic, the customer service or visitor assistant position may be just the thing. Imagine the thrill of knowing you have helped play match-maker by introducing someone to their next life-long four legged companion. If you are a creative type and a good salesperson, you may be well suited to volunteer at one of our three thrift stores located in Englewood, Port Charlotte and Venice. These stores provide desperately needed funding for the care of our animals through the sales of gently used household and other items, donated by the public. Volunteers help price, display and sell the donated merchandise. Other fundraising activities needing volunteer help include distribution of ”yers and newsletters, monitoring critter banks placed in businesses, and/or helping with the planning, marketing, and success of major fundraising events. Individuals interested in volunteering complete a volunteer orientation followed by training for the assigned position. Again, it is very rewarding to know y ou are helping homeless animals by becoming a volunteer.

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 37 Theres no denying it: Women are calling for change. Theyre mobilized, invigorated, and determined to make sure the future is one that supports them both in their personal and professional pursuits. But a recent study says theres one glaring area where women arent standing up for themselves. And thats a huge bummer. Only 34 percent of women negotiate their job offers, compared to 46 percent of their male peers, according to a recent survey of more than 2,700 workers by global staf“ng “rm Robert Half. And actually, from my experience as a corporate recruiter, Id say the discrepancy is even greater! We expect todays modern women to be more vocal and fearless than previous generations, so this news is especially bewildering. As someone who has been on the other side of the desk in countless job-offer negotiations, I can tell you this: Everyone should negotiate their salaries. With all of that in mind, I thought I might offer some insights for women on how to approach this kind of discussion with con“dence. You might be surprised to “nd out its really just a simple conversation. Lets break it down.Go in knowing youll askYes, even if the original offer is a good one. Yes, even „ especially! „ if you feel awkward asking. Ive experienced candidates who were completely con“dent and self-assured, as well as candidates who stumbled over their words. While the latter individuals were clearly uncomfortable, guess what? They still managed to ask and, yes, they almost always got more money. They stepped out of their comfort zone and reaped the rewards. In your head, try to make this an essential for the job-search process, just like wearing a suit to the interview or writing a thank-you note afterwards. If youre afraid you wont follow through, tell someone else„like a trusted mentor or friend„ and get that person to hold you accountable. Need motivation? Bear in mind that women still earn only roughly 80 cents to every $1 that men do „ the “gure drops to 63 cents for African American women and 54 cents for Hispanic women. And every time you dont negotiate your salary, youre likely growing the pay gap even more between you and your male colleagues. How would you feel if you knew the guy in the next cube over who has the same title was making 21 percent more than you were? Or better yet, how happy would you be with 21 percent more money in your biweekly paycheck? Another way to think about it: When you negotiate your starting salary, youre setting a baseline. The higher you start, the higher your salary will be with each incremental raise you get at that company. (Oh, and if you dont see a raise after two or three years, de“nitely start looking for a new job.)Be preparedIn order to know what you should be asking for when negotiating your salary, do your research ahead of time. Start by looking up your job title and geographic region on Salary.com or Payscale. com. This will give you a starting point. Next, initiate conversations with former colleagues, as well as with mentors and industry organizations you belong to. State something like, Im excited to pursue new job opportunities, but its my mission to get paid what Im worth. In the spirit of sharing information„Im not asking you what you speci“cally get paid„but what do you think the going rate is for my title and Women are leading the charge for change „ except when it comes to negotiating their salariesBy VICKI SALEMIMONSTER CAREER EXPERT SALARIES | 2 Mission Driven...

Page 38 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 8, 2018 my years of experience in this area?Ž The more conversations you have, the more educated youll become, and ultimately, the more comfortable youll feel talking about salary in general. Lastly, speak to your HR department and/or look online at your companys intranet. Many employers have become transparent in terms of sharing salary ranges for different levels and titles. You may be able to “nd out what your going range is.Ace the conversationHeres how you want to play it when the job offer comes in: Recruiter: Congratulations, we have exciting news! Wed like to extend a job offer to you for the role of XYZ, starting on Monday, August 15th, with a salary of $75,000.Ž Two things to remember: 1.) You may be jumping up and down on the inside, but do not accept that offer on the spot! 2.) This should be a friendly, collaborative conversation. Treat it as such „ meaning, dont go in ready for a “ght. You: [Pause.] Thats great! Im honored by the offer, thank you!Ž That pause is important. Your silence will unnerve the recruiter (remember they want you to take this job as much as you want to„they need to show that their time to “llŽ open positions is within industry norms). Then immediately afterward demonstrate your enthusiasm and gratitude. You want your tone of voice to convey this as well, since the offer will likely be extended on the phone. Be upbeat and sincere in your appreciation. [Pause again.] You: But, I need to think about it over the weekend. I was hoping for a higher salary. Is that a possibility?Ž Heres where the conversation really kicks off. Remember always to keep the tone light and polite. Youre working together to reach a solution thats amenable to both of you. Most likely, the recruiter is going to say something like, Im not sure. Let me check and get back to you.Ž The recruiter may add, Its easier for me to get an offer approved if you tell me what salary youre looking for.Ž You can say, I dont know what your budget allows for, so Im hoping to see “rst if you can go higher,Ž in order to push them to come up with a number “rst. But this approach to the conversation may go in a circle. Ideally, as in any negotiation, you want the other party to put down a number “rst, but they might not go there (truth be told, I never did). If its looking like its up to you to make the “rst move, go ahead and state your number, such as $85,000. You may end up with a “nal offer of $80,000. When you reach a desirable number, be sure to thank them and express your appreciation. Now its time to start inquiring about sign-on bonuses, ”exible worktime and an additional week of paid time off. The worst they can do is say no. The truth of the matter is that recruiters and hiring managers are more surprised when you dont negotiate than when you do. Remember, the more you negotiate, the more normal it will feel. Right now, you need to pummel through any self-doubts or awkward feelings. Go ahead and negotiate every single offer you get, and when the amounts con“rmed, ask to get it in writing. You can thank me later!Be more career savvyNegotiating your salary is just one of the many challenges youll face throughout your time in the workforce. Its not easy, we know. But the more comfortable you are when it comes time to stand up for yourself, the more youll do it. Need some extra help becoming a more assertive, savvy worker? Join Monster today. As a member, youll get career advice and job search tips sent straight to your inbox so you can con“dently climb the ladder. Knowledge truly is power.SALARIESFROM PAGE 1 Anyone who has ever searched for a job knows the confusion that surrounds job titles. Coordinator? Specialist? Associate? Senior associate? How do you determine which job you should apply for? Luckily, Monster career experts have come up with five strategies that can help you uncover the truth behind the title. These tips will show you what to look for in job postings to figure out which position would suit you best.Identify job description keywordsIts good to be ambitious and apply for a few reachŽ positions when youre looking for jobs, but you need to know how exactly the title will translate to responsibilities, no matter the seniority. Know how to decipher a job ad. If you see words like administer, coordinate, process „ those are indications of individual contributor positions, not management-level positions, regardless of title,Ž says Greg Szymanski, director of human resources at Geonerco Management in Seattle. Whereas, lead, influence, collaborate, direct, partner with, head, and synthesize are words that indicate higher-level responsibilities.ŽCompare your experience to the job dutiesYour resume should be updated regularly with relevant work experience (if its not, check out how to refresh your resume). Use it as a quick reference check to see if your experience lines up with the job description. Are they duties youve performed recently? Duties that your boss normally performs?Ž asks Kelly Donovan, principal at Kelly Donovan & Associates, a career guidance service in Lake Elsinore, California. You dont need to have performed every duty listed [to apply], but you should have experience with most of them.ŽResearch job titles on the employers websiteThere are no rules for creating job titles, so they may vary widely between companies. The best place to investigate how a company uses the titles, and what people in those positions are responsible for, is oftentimes the About Us or Company tab on the hiring companys website. Maybe they call everyone VPs or have unusual titling conventions,Ž says Ilana Youngheim, account executive at PMBC Group, a public relations firm in Los Angeles. It helps to do a little research on a company before applying, to target the right job, and also to demonstrate in your cover letter that you know something about them, that you did your research. This earns lots of points with recruiters and hiring managers,Ž Youngheim explains.Ask revealing questionsGot called into an interview, or maybe theyd like to set up a phoner first? Great! This is the perfect opportunity to gather more information about that cryptic job title and get more details about the positions responsibilities. In the interview, ask pertinent questions about the day-to-day responsibilities, job training, expectations, and managerial needs (if applicable), along with short-term and long-term goals,Ž says Christina VanBuskirk, a recruiter at Sasha the Mensch, a recruiting firm in New York City. Be honest and confident about your own experience. Even if the HR manager deems that youre not the right fit for a current role, if you leave a great impression and have good rapport with the team, they will likely keep you in mind for future opportunities.Ž An example of a revealing question to ask is: What does a typical day look like? That will get the conversation moving in the right direction,Ž says Justin Smith, founder of Outerbox, a web design company in Akron, Ohio. If youre passionate about spending your time in a specific way, tell your potential employer, dont be shy. Remember, its a two-way street, and they want to hire you to work on tasks youll be passionate to work on.Ž Broaden your search to include common job titles Running into too many flashy titles that are blatantly inflated? It might be time to broaden your search, centering it around more common terms like sales repŽ as opposed to sales officer,Ž or bartenderŽ instead of cocktail artist.Ž As long as your skills and talents match up with what youll be doing [in that particular job], apply to it, regardless of title,Ž recommends Stephanie Troiano, talent acquisition manager at The Hire Talent, a talent assessment company in Brea, California. One of the most important aspects of conducting a job search is staying current on openings as soon as theyre posted. The more job descriptions you read, the better youll get at deciphering them.

JOBS CLASSIFIEDSFrom knowing your way around data analytics to problem-solving smarts, this is what you need to get an edge in this years job market. Nothing is forever„especially in the workforce. So naturally, the job skills that employers look for in new hires change from year to year. Its one of the best ways for companies to stay competitive and ahead of the never-ending curve. The workplace moves rapidly,Ž says Julie Friedman Steele, board chair and CEO at World Future Society, a membership group for people who study changes across various industries. Employers need workers who stay current.Ž That means you need to consistently improve your skills and develop new ones. So if youre looking for a better job this year„and why wouldnt you be?„ how can you make your skill set more attractive to employers? Monster spoke with experts to determine the top seven skills employers will be looking for in 2018 hires. Heres your chance to get an edge in the job market.Problem solvingSome soft skills, like problem-solving abilities, will always be in fashion, says Vicki Salemi, career expert at Monster. Challenges inevitably arise,Ž she says, and employers want to see that you can troubleshoot and solve them independently.Ž To prove to a hiring manager during a job interview that youre a problem solver, cite an example from a past job where you identi“ed a problem, developed a solution, and successfully resolved the issue,Ž Salemi advises.Data analyticsWere moving into even more of a data-driven world,Ž says Steele. But numbers alone are useless unless theres a human who can interpret them. As a result, more employers are searching for job candidates who can understand and utilize data. This is an important skill for everyone„not just for job seekers seeing traditional data jobs, says Parminder Jassal, head of the Learn and Work Futures Group at the Institute for the Future. You should have some experience with data analytics and computational thinking, whether its programming, coding, or machine learning,Ž she says. Unfamiliar with data? Dont sweat it. You can easily gain or improve your data analytics skills by taking an online course on the subject.Social media literacyBetween Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and the like, social media is changing the way companies do business, which is why its important to not only understand how these tools work but also be able to use them effectively for business purposes. But many job seekers today still arent capitalizing on the wide-reaching effects of social media. Case in point: A recent Pew Research Center study found that only 21 percent of all U.S. adults use Twitter. Social media literacy is one of the top “ve skills I see employers seeking in new hires,Ž says Robin Colner, CEO of DigiStar Media, a digital and social marketing agency based in Harrison, New York. Job seekers that have developed robust online personal brands using social media and content marketing have a clear advantage over candidates that have limited experience with social marketing. I have seen “rst hand how individuals of all ages and career stages have obtained better jobs and advanced their careers by demonstrating competency with social media.Ž Salemi says one way to highlight your social media skills during a job interview is by describing how you use these websites. Are you using Twitter to stay on top of industry news and interact with thought leaders? What types of articles do you share on Facebook? Have you built a strong following on Instagram to show off your eye for the extraordinary? Your social media activity should serve a concrete purpose beyond being a cure for boredom.CreativityA global survey from the World Economic Forum found that creativity will be the third most important work skill„after complex problem solving and critical thinking„ by 2020. Why? Employers are always looking for people who can come up with fresh ways to approach their jobs,Ž Salemi says. Granted, most job interviews arent particularly conducive to demonstrating your creativity in real time. Thus, the best way to show you have a creative mindset is to talk about an innovative way you tackled a task in the past. Maybe you streamlined the production process for your department, or found a way to shrink the companys operating costs„those sorts of creative achievements are music to a hiring managers ears.ResilienceTrial and error is a recurring process in every industry„innovation depends on experimentation. As such, you need to be able to take a hit as well as a win. Employers want to see that you can thrive in tough situations,Ž Salemi explains. Thats why resiliency is one of the most coveted soft skills in todays job market, says Steele. While its similar to problem solving, resiliency is more focused on your ability to recover from setbacks. Instead of crumbling under pressure, you need to learn from failure and “nd ways to make the best of a bad situation.Good business senseAs more companies adopt ”at organization structures„breaking down silos between employees and executives„more employers are looking for people who understand basic business principles. Nowadays, individuals have to be able to understand how the entire company operates,Ž Jassal explains. Therefore, showing hiring managers that youre acquainted with the basic functions of other departments within the company can make you a signi“cantly more attractive job candidate.Willingness to learnThis may not seem like a skill per say, but willingness to learn new skills is one of the most compelling characteristics job seekers can possess today, Jassal says. Whether its through industry conferences, certi“cation courses, online classes, or Meetup Groups, you should always be taking steps to improve and gain new skills,Ž she says. Salemi agrees. Employers want to know: Do you have an appetite to learn new things? Do you stay on top of industry trends? Do you push yourself and take on tasks that are outside your comfort zone?Ž Those traits all re”ect your desire to enhance your skill set„making you a more valuable worker to any employer.These 7 work skills can make you more marketable to employers in 2018By DANIEL BORTZMONSTER CONTRIBUTOR WASHINGTON (AP) „ U.S. employers added a modest 103,000 jobs in March after several months of robust gains, though the governments overall jobs report Friday suggested that the labor market remains fundamentally healthy. The unemployment rate remained at 4.1 percent, a 17-year low, for a sixth straight month, the government said. Average hourly pay ticked up, climbing 2.7 percent compared with a year earlier. The government also revised down its estimate of job growth for January and February by a combined 50,000. Still, over the past six months, employers have added a healthy average of 211,000 jobs, evidence that hiring in the United States remains strong and the economy on solid footing in its ninth year of recovery from the Great Recession. The pullback in hiring last month was likely payback for an explosive gain in February, economists said. Employers added 326,000 jobs that month „ the largest monthly haul in two years. Overall, looking through the volatility, employment growth is trending higher and wage growth is starting to heat up,Ž said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics. Marchs tepid job gain may make it slightly more likely that the Federal Reserve will raise shortterm interest rates just twice more this year, rather than three more times. Last month, the Fed modestly raised its benchmark rate to a still-low range of 1.5 percent to 1.75 percent. The Feds policymakers signaled at that meeting that a total of three rate increases were likely this year. But some economists have speculated that if further signs of rapid economic growth emerged, the Fed would raise rates faster to try to keep in”ation under control. The stock market fell sharply in mid-day trading, mostly in response to the latest round of threats by President Donald Trump to impose additional tariffs on Chinese imports. The Dow Jones industrial average fell nearly 400 points. Last months modest job gain may indicate that some employers want to hire more but are struggling to “nd the workers they need. A separate government report last month showed that there was nearly one open job for every unemployed person, the lowest ratio on records dating back two decades. Edward Daniel, chief executive of Metropolitan Health Services, says he has raised pay and sweetened bene“ts to try to “ll his 740-person companys roughly 80 open jobs. Daniels “rm, based in Herndon, Virginia, provides services to hospitals, such as valet parking and sitters,Ž who stay with elderly or mentally ill patients after theyve been sent home from operations. Across the board, hiring is a challenge,Ž Daniel said. His pay for sitters has increased from $10 to $12 an hour, mostly to keep up with raises at retailers and fast food restaurants. The company now offers a 401(k) to all employees after 30 days on the job and provides a prescription drug discount card. By June of next year, it plans to pay half its employees educational costs. Its a big change, Daniel said, from a decade ago, when the company offered no bene“ts at all. Since then, the companys business has grown steadily. Some of the drop-off in hiring for March was likely weather-related, with late spring snowstorms blanketing the Northeast, closing construction sites and potentially postponing shopping trips for spring clothes. Construction companies cut 15,000 jobs, the sharpest monthly drop in three years, after “ve months of big gains. Retailers shed 4,400. Hotels and restaurants added just 4,300 workers, the fewest in six months. Some higher-paying sectors still posted solid gains: Manufacturers added 22,000 jobs. Professional and business services, which include such “elds as accounting and architecture, gained 33,000. The U.S. economy appears to be sturdy, with the recovery from the 20082009 Great Recession now the second-longest expansion since the 1850s, when economists began tracking recessions and recoveries. Still, the expansion has been puzzlingly slow, with economic growth averaging just 2.2 percent a year „ about a percentage point below the historical average. But its durability has been broadly bene“cial. For example, a rising number of working-age Americans have begun looking for a job and “nding one, reversing a trend from the “rst few years after the recession when many of the unemployed grew discouraged and stopped looking for work. An increasing need to compete for workers may also “nally be lifting wages in some sectors. Yet the steady in”ux of new workers, which gives employers more hiring options than the low unemployment rate might otherwise suggest, may be holding back overall pay growth. Though the economy likely slowed in the “rst three months of this year, economists expect growth will rebound in the coming months. Macroeconomic Advisers, a consulting “rm, forecasts that the economy grew at just a 1.4 percent annual rate in the JanuaryMarch quarter „ less than half the 2.9 percent annual pace of the OctoberDecember quarter. But the “rm expects growth to rebound to a decent 3.1 percent annual pace in the current April-June quarter. Other reports indicate that growing optimism among businesses and consumers should help propel the economy in the months ahead. Businesses have stepped up their spending on manufactured goods, helping lift factory output. And last month, factories expanded at a healthy pace after having grown in February at the fastest rate since 2004, according to a private survey.Job market remains healthy despite slower hiring in MarchBy CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITER AP FILE PHOTOIn this March 14, 2018, le photo, Indiana Wesleyan University senior Courtney Kingma, left, thanks Jennie Hehe, community resource manager for Tangram.

Pete Gaylord has three pieces of advice for people diagnosed with Parkinsons disease: Dont hide the diagnosis Educate yourself, your family and your friends Dont consider it game over Gaylord, 62, has been dealing with Parkinsons for more than 20 years. He teaches classes associated with dealing with the disease at Bayfront Health Punta Gordas Wellness Center. His is a clear voice that speaks from experience on the subject. He sat down on a recent Wednesday after teaching a class in posture and balance to talk about Parkinsons. April is Parkinsons Awareness Month, and a big event is planned for April 14 in Sarasota. The Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinsons Expo will be the largest, annually-held Parkinsons event in Florida, showcasing how to live well with Parkinsons. Parkinsons is a chronic, progressive movement disorder for which there is no known cause or cure. More than a million people in the United States suffer from it. There are different stages in the progression, but it generally causes tremors of the hands, arms, legs, jaw and face, slowness of movement, stiffness in the limbs and impaired balance and coordination While the progression cant be stopped, it can be slowed. Medication is one way. Exercise in addition to medication is another. Gaylord is a living, breathing example of how to live well with the disease. The key to it is to try to curtail the progression of the disease,Ž he said. The two things that have served me very well are exercise and a sense of humor. Without a sense of humor, I dont think its doable.Ž The first step after diagnosis should be to get it out in the open to family and friends. Lots of people dont share the diagnosis with their family right away,Ž Gaylord said. Thats a big mistake, because when you share with your family, they know what youre dealing with. They have no idea if you dont tell them whats going on.Ž And thats where the second step comes in.

In December of 2016, Hays friends Clare and Betty Thomas arrived from Toronto for their annual four-month winter vacation in North Fort Myers. Two days before Christmas, they attended dance class at Tamiami Village in the afternoon. Clare seemed to have a slight cough, but joined in the dancing,Ž Bill Hay recalled. That evening, he experienced breathing issues and Betty took him to Cape Coral Hospital, where he was diagnosed with pneumonia and admitted.Ž Further diagnosis indicated what Bill called a lazy epiglottis,Ž meaning that the cartilage at the back of Clares tongue was not sealing access to his windpipe as he swallowed, so Clare was equipped with a feeding tube to prevent food from getting into the lungs. Betty contacted their insurance company and Clares doctor in Toronto. All agreed that Clare should be ”own home by air ambulance Betty was advised to keep a carry on bag in the car and expect a call anytime to be at the airport on short notice,Ž Bill said. Lack of available hospital beds in Toronto and unfavorable ”ying conditions held up the process as the days dragged on. On Friday, Dec. 30, Bill and his wife visited Clare, who was comfortable but still using a feeding tube. He talked with us and smiled when we asked him what dance he wanted us to dance with him at our groups New Years Dance. He suggested he could handle Blue Rose,Ž Bill recalled The family doctor in Toronto kept urging them to bring Clare back to Canada, while his swallowing and congestion problems continued.Canadian hospital crisis affecting area snowbirdsMEARNS | 11 PHOTO PROVIDEDRegular housecleaning can remove many common allergy triggers and help alleviate symptoms. Knowing which common home improvemen t mistakes can aggravate allergies can help homeowners avoid them. Home renovation projects are done for several different reasons, whether to update styles, repair damaged or broken items or to achieve more living space. More than ever before, homeowners are choosing improvement projects geared toward making their homes healthier. Establishing a healthy home means different things to different people. For example, to an environmentalist, a healthy home may incorporate ecofriendly or green products. To those with young children or mobility-impaired seniors, a healthy home may be one free from potential hazards. Others may view a healthy home as one that alleviates allergies. The World Health Organizations says inadequate housing conditions, such as poor ventilation, radon, urban pollution, and moisture issues, can contribute to many preventable diseases and injuries „ especially respiratory problems, nervous system disorders, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Furthermore, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air quality as a top “ve environmental risk to public health. EPA studies have found that indoor air pollution levels were roughly two to “ve times greater than outdoor pollution levels. People interested in making their homes healthier can embrace these renovations and lifestyle changes. € Be aware of furniture materials. Toxic PBDEs, which are chemicals used as ”ame retardants on furniture fabrics produced prior to 2006, can send toxins into the air. Some manufacturers may still use these ”ame retardants in new forms, but with similar risks.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology reports that allergic rhinitis affects between 10 and 30 percent of the worlds population. In addition, the prevalence of allergic diseases has risen in industrialized nations for more than 50 years. Seasonal allergies tend to be the strongest in spring and autumn. Allergies can be exacerbated by many factors, including in homes where improvements are being made. Regular housecleaning can remove many common allergy triggers and help alleviate symptoms. Knowing which common home improvement mistakes can aggravate allergies can help homeowners avoid them. Suit up Before any cleaning begins, allergy sufferers should don face masks and rubber gloves to prevent themselves from breathing in allergens or having them touch their hands, where they can be transferred to the face or elsewhere. Those cleaning should also wear clothes that can be easily removed and laundered after a days work. Clean windows singularly Prolonged exposure to outdoor allergens, such as pollen, mold or ragweed, can aggravate allergies. Therefore, if windows are being cleaned, do one at a time and then promptly close the window. Having the air conditioning running can help “lter the air as well. Use exhaust fans The AAAAI recommends using an exhaust fan in the kitchen and bathrooms to reduce the levels of moisture in these rooms and “lter out potential allergens and odors.

But how frightened should we be of a daily cup of joe? Not very, some scientists and available evidence seem to suggest. Scienti“c concerns about coffee have eased in recent years, and many studies even suggest it can help health. At the minimum, coffee is neutral. If anything, there is fairly good evidence of the bene“t of coffee on cancer,Ž said Dr. Edward Giovannucci, a nutrition expert at the Harvard School of Public Health. The World Health Organizations cancer agency moved coffee off the possible carcinogenŽ list two years ago, though it says evidence is insuf“cient to rule out any possible role. The current ”ap isnt about coffee itself, but a chemical called acrylamide (ah-KRILL-ahmide) thats made when the beans are roasted. Government agencies call it a probable or likely carcinogen, based on animal research, and a group sued to require coffee sellers to warn of that under a California law passed by voters in 1986. The problem: No one knows what levels are safe or risky for people. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sets acrylamide limits for drinking water, but there arent any for food. A cup of coffee a day, exposure probably is not that high,Ž and probably should not change your habit, said Dr. Bruce Y. Lee of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. If you drink a lot of cups a day, this is one of the reasons you might consider cutting that down.Ž Heres whats known about the risks.THE CHEMICALStart with the biggest known risk factor for cancer „ smoking „ which generates acrylamide In the diet, French fries, potato chips, crackers, cookies, cereal and other high-carbohydrate foods contain it as a byproduct of roasting, baking, toasting or frying. Food and Drug Administration tests of acrylamide levels found they ranged from 175 to 351 parts per billion (a measure of concentration for a contaminant) for six brands of coffee tested; the highest was for one type of decaf coffee crystals. By comparison, French fries at one fast food chain ranged from 117 to 313 parts per billion, depending on the location tested. Some commercial fries had more than 1,000. Even some baby foods contain acrylamide, such as teething biscuits and crackers. One brand of organic sweet potatoes tested as having 121 parts per billion.WHATS THE RISK?The probableŽ or likelyŽ carcinogen label is based on studies of animals given high levels of acrylamide in drinking water. But people and rodents absorb the chemical at different rates and metabolize it differently, so its relevance to human health is unknown. A group of 23 scientists convened by the WHOs cancer agency in 2016 looked at coffee „ not acrylamide directly „ and decided coffee was unlikely to cause breast, prostate or pancreatic cancer, and that it seemed to lower the risks for liver and uterine cancers. Evidence was inadequate to determine its effect on dozens of other cancer types.THE CALIFORNIA LAWSince 1986, businesses have been required to post warnings about chemicals known to cause cancer or other health risks „ more than 900 substances are on the states list today „ but whats a signi“cantŽ risk is arguable. Coffee sellers and other defendants in the lawsuit that spurred Thursdays ruling have a couple weeks to challenge it or appeal. The law has potential to do much more harm than good to public health,Ž by confusing people into thinking risks from something like coffee are similar to those from smoking, Giovannucci said. The International Food Information Council and Foundation, an organization funded mostly by the food and beverage industry, says the law is confusing the public because it doesnt note levels of risk, and adds that U.S. dietary guidelines say up to “ve cups of coffee a day can be part of a healthy diet. Dr. Otis Brawley, the American Cancer Societys chief medical of“cer, said, The issue here is dose, and the amount of acrylamide that would be included in coffee, which is really very small, compared to the amount from smoking tobacco. I dont think we should be worried about a cup of coffee.Ž Amy Trenton-Dietz, public health specialist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the California ruling contrasts with what science shows. Studies in humans suggest that if anything, coffee is protective for some types of cancer,Ž she said. As long as people are not putting a lot of sugar or sweeteners in, coffee, tea and water are the best things for people to be drinking.ŽWhat we know about cancer risk and coffeeBy MARILYNN MARCHIONEAP CHIEF MEDICAL WRITERFEELING FIT 2 NAMI Family Support groupsPort Charlotte: The National Alliance on Mental Illness will have a Family Support Group meeting from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 1532 Forrest Nelson Blvd., Port Charlotte.

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 27 FEELING FIT 3 At the Cool Beans Cafe, a dollar buys a teacher or school staff member a freshly made cup of hot coffee, tea or cocoaand gets it delivered to their door. That dollar also has a big bene“t for the seventh-grade students with special needs who run the cafe at Poquoson Middle School. They get experience with job skills and social interactions outside a typical classroom environment. They really get a lot out of this,Ž said Heather Hopkins, the teacher who started the cafe and helps run it. When the cafe started, Hopkins was hands-on helping the students learn the job. Now, she ”oats around, offering occasional instructions. They can do this,Ž she said recently. It was kind of a sad day when they didnt need me anymore,Ž she said with a laugh. The “ve students who run the cafe all have a speci“c job. Teachers order online in advance, and Jake Mann, the supply manager, looks for the letters that identify the drink they want. He takes the proper K-Cup for a Keurig machine and puts it on a tray with a paper coffee cup, lid and drink sleeve with the full order on it. Braden Jobst, the barista, brews the coffee in one of the shops two Keurigs, often juggling multiple orders at a time. Alex Sarber, the barista assistant, adds the creamer, sugar, honey or whatever add-in the customer wants. The creamers are often seasonal, such as candy cane and peppermint ”avors during the winter. The “nished drinks are dropped off to a cart piloted by delivery driver J.J. Shibuya, who likes to go, beep, beep, beep,Ž when he backs up, mimicking the sound a truck would make. Jasmine Baker, the cashier, goes on the deliveries with J.J. and collects money and tips -cash and candy-from the customers. She also keeps track of the punch cards some customers have purchased, which gives them 11 drinks for $10. Hopkins started the coffee shop program this school year with a $1,600 grant from the Virginia Department of Education. The grant is focused on giving students an opportunity to practice selfdetermined behavior and independence. One of Hopkins main goals is to prepare the students for life after school. The students had to apply to work in the shop, and they change jobs every month and have to reapply again. Next year, she wants to introduce concepts such as wages and paying rent to make the connection between doing a job and how a person lives. Even though the shop runs like a business, theres plenty of opportunity to goof off. Jake, who loves to be in pictures, paused frequently to pose for photos and to admire the pictures on the wall depicting the shop employees. He also talked to the teachers about how he didnt like the pose he had to do for picture day. As Alex added cream and sugar to a drink, he and Hopkins bantered about the customer being “nicky and having a complicated order that he didnt want to mess up. From his experience at the cafe, he said hes started to enjoy helping his mom make coffee at home. For a coffee with four sugars, Hopkins jokingly told Braden to stick his pinky in it to make it extra sweet „ he knew better than to follow that instruction, though. The students take pride in the work and have showed off their operation at a School Board meeting and at a recent expo of instructional programs at Poquoson schools. Along with the positive experience of running the shop, the business supports some fun activities for the students. While the coffee purchases go to buying supplies, the tips pay for “eld trips. This year, the students took a trip to the movies to practice theater etiquette and also went to Chick-Fil-A to work on social skills at a restaurant. After the main service rush, the staff made and delivered their last cup of coffee. They knew to wait to make this order because the cafeteria monitor who would be drinking it didnt come in to work until later in the morning. After that “nal cup was sent out, the students clocked out and put their aprons away in work lockers before sitting in their desks, unwinding after another successful service.Special needs students serve up coffee, learn life skillsBy JOSH REYESDAILY PRESS TNS PHOTOBraden Jobst pours water into a Keurig while working at Poquoson Middle Schools Cool Beans Cafe on Thursday morning, March 29, 2018. Special needs students run all aspects of the coee shop, which gives them experience with job skills and social interactions outside a typical classroom environment. At a time when the country seems hopelessly divided, health of“cials are here to remind us of something that unites Americans from all walks of life: deaths tied to opioid overdoses. A report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention presents some alarming new statistics about the opioid epidemic that claims the lives of 115 Americans each day. Researchers from the CDCs National Center for Injury Prevention and Control examined data on fatal overdoses from the 31 states that made reliable reports of drug-related causes of death to the CDCs National Vital Statistics System. The District of Columbia was included as well. The picture that emerges is of a public health crisis that touches just about every segment of the country. From 2015 to 2016, opioid-involved deaths increased in males and females and among persons aged 15 years, whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians/Paci“c Islanders,Ž the researchers wrote. Deaths involving synthetic opioids increased in every subgroup examined.Ž Their “ndings appear in Fridays edition of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Heres a by-thenumbers look at how the opioid epidemic is evolving. € 42,249: The number of accidental opioid overdose deaths in the United States in 2016. That “gure represents 66 percent of all drug overdose deaths that year. € 13.3: The ageadjusted rate of opioid overdose deaths in 2016. That means that for every 100,000 Americans, 13.3 died from taking a powerful dose of opioids. By adjusting for age, researchers can estimate how many deaths there would have been if every state had the same age distribution of residents. Then they can make comparisons between states that skew younger and states with a higher proportion of elderly people. € 27.9 percent: Thats how much the opioid overdose death rate increased in just one year, between 2015 and 2016. In 2015, there were 10.4 opioid overdose deaths per 100,000 people. € 56.1 percent: The increase in fatal opioid-related overdoses among Americans categorized as non-Hispanic blacks between 2015 and 2016. That was the biggest increase seen in any racial or ethnic group. Asians and Paci“c Islanders came in second at 36.4 percent, followed by Latinos at 32.6 percent. Among whites, the opioid-related overdose death rate increased by 25.9 percent, and among Native Americans it rose 14.9 percent. € 43.4: For every 100,000 residents of West Virginia, thats how many died in 2016 after overdosing on an opioid. It was the highest age-adjusted death rate among the states with reliable data. Other states with high death rates included New Hampshire (35.8 deaths per 100,000 people), Ohio (32.9 deaths per 100,000 people), the District of Columbia (30 deaths per 100,000 people), Maryland (29.7 deaths per 100,000 people) and Massachusetts (also 29.7 deaths per 100,000 people). € 4.9: The opioid overdose death rate for Texas. This was the lowest rate among the states in the study. € 10.6 percent: Thats the nationwide increase in deaths caused by prescription opioid medications. In 2015, there were 15,281 such deaths; by 2016, that there were 17,087. € 100 percent: The nationwide increase in fatal overdoses linked to synthetic opioids other than methadone. In other words, the death rate associated with these drugs doubled between 2015 and 2016. € 200 percent: Thats how much the death rate due to synthetic opioids increased among Latinos and Asians and Paci“c Islanders between 2015 and 2016. In other words, it tripled. € 4: The number of times the CDC report mentions illicitly manufactured fentanyl, or IMF. The researchers said IMF is highly potentŽ and is probably fueling the spike in overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids. IMF is now being mixed into counterfeit opioid and benzodiazepine pills, heroin, and cocaine, likely contributing to increases in overdose death rates involving other substances,Ž they wrote. € 4.9 percent: For every 100,000 people living in the United States, thats how many died of a heroin overdose in 2016. The rate was nearly 20 percent higher in 2016 than it was in 2015. € 17.3: The death rate due to heroin overdoses in the District of Columbia. At the other end of the spectrum were Oklahoma and Hawaii, both of which had 1.4 deaths per 100,000 people. € 3: The number of wavesŽ in the epidemic of opioid overdose deaths, according to the CDC researchers. The “rst wave began in the 1990s, a result of prescription pain medications. The second wave followed in 2010, marked by fatal overdoses of heroin.The current wave can be traced to the rise of IMF and other synthetic opioids, beginning in 2013. By 2016, these drugs were responsible for 45.9 percent of all opioid-related overdose deaths in the U.S.Opioid overdose deaths are still rising in nearly every segment of the country, CDC saysBy KAREN KAPLANLOS ANGELES TIMES ASSISTED LIVING AND MEMORY COTTAGELOVE WHERE YOU LIVE EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE 941.979.60232595 HARBOR BOULEVARD PORT CHARLOTTE, FLORIDA, 33952 LICENSE # AL 13075 adno=50531456

Page 28 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 8, 2018 I know that broccoli is good for me, but I dont know what to do with it or how it should be cooked?Ž Friends, in this column we will solve this often-asked riddle. Broccoli is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, which includes cabbage, Bok choy, kale, Brussels sprouts, cauli”ower, turnip greens, and mustard greens. Cruciferous veggies offer powerful nutrients, each with its own combination of shared and unique vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, indoles, sulfur, and more. We are not talking here pre-cooked-tillunconsciousfrozen kind! Fresh or frozen raw broccoli is particularly bene“cial for eye health, helps lower the risk of cancer, reduce cholesterol levels, and is anti-in”ammatory. Certain substances in broccoli also aid in the bodys detoxi“cation. Broccoli provides high levels of vitamins C, K, and A, as well as potassium, boron and “ber. It also delivers signi“cant amounts of chromium, magnesium, lutein, Beta carotene, zeaxanthin, and folate. There are two main types of broccoli: Heading Broccoli-the classic kind-consisting of one large head of buds; and the Non-Heading Raab (Rapini) broccoli that has branching stems with small heads of buds. Both types come in a variety of cultivars and green or purple-green colors. When selecting broccoli, choose a “rm, dark green head. The stalk and leaves are equally nutritious and delicious. To use the stalk, peel the woody outer layer and trim the bottom. Cut the stalk into -inch slices and cook with the broccoli ”orets and leaves. It is best to buy organic broccoli, as it is nearly impossible to wash away toxic pesticides in between the tiny and dense bud clusters. Broccoli can be consumed raw added to salads, or as a snack dipped in a sauce. You can eat cooked broccoli plain, or mixed with other ingredients. Cooking the vegetable is preferably done by brie”y steaming. This quick and easy method best preserves color and texture, and more importantly, its vitamins and other substances which are particularly sensitive to heat. Not recommended is boiling broccoli immersed in water or oven-baking, including in casseroles. Unearth the goodness of broccoli and reap its enormous bene“ts. Here are some easy and delicious recipes for you to try „ enjoy. Judy E. Buss is a nutritional cooking instructor.

RECIPEFEELING FIT 4 A migraine is much more than just a bad headache. Migraine symptoms, which can be debilitating for many people, are the sixth leading cause of disability, according to the World Health Organization. While there is no cure, a new study published in Cephalalgia journal in March shows single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation is a new way to prevent migraine attacks. Its safe, easy to use and noninvasive. Researchers at Mayo Clinic and other major academic headache centers across the U.S. recently conducted the study that examined the effectiveness of using a single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation device to prevent migraine attacks. The eNeura SpringTMS Post-Market Observational U.S. Study of Migraine study, also known as ESPOUSE, instructed participants to self-administer four pulses with the device in the morning and four pulses at night over three months to prevent and treat migraine attacks as needed. Spring TMS stands for Spring transcranial magnetic stimulation or sTMS. The migraine brain is hyperexcitable, and basic science studies have demonstrated modulation of neuronal excitability with this treatment modality,Ž says Amaal Starling, M.D., a Mayo Clinic neurologist, who is “rst author of the study. Our study demonstrated that the four pulses emitted from this device twice daily reduce the frequency of headache days by about three days per month, and 46 percent of patients had at least 50 percent or less migraine attacks per month on the treatment protocol. This data is clinically signi“cant. Based on the current study and prior studies in acute migraine attack treatment, sTMS not only helps to stop a migraine attack, but it also helps prevent them.Ž For certain patients, treatment options for migraines, such as oral medications, are not effective, well-tolerated or preferred,Ž Dr. Starling adds. The sTMS may be a great option for these patients and allow doctors to better meet their unique needs.Ž The U.S. Food and Drug Administration already had approved the sTMS device for the acute treatment of migraine with aura. The FDA now has approved it to prevent migraine, as well.Study: Easy-to-use, noninvasive stimulation device can help prevent migraine attacksFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORK TNS PHOTOA new study published in Cephalalgia in March shows singlepulse transcranial magnetic stimulation is a new way to prevent migraine attacks that is safe, easy to use and noninvasive.

Experiment with different types of bulbs and lighting “xtures to turn drab and dreary environments into brighter places. Lighting may improve mood and productivity. € Let the sun shine in. Modify window treatments to let more sunlight into the house. There is evidence that the sun, particularly UV light, is a potent bactericide. The Sunlight Institute advises that theres no harm in letting natural sunlight do its work, as bacteria within eight feet of low-intensity UV light can be killed in 10 minutes. € Inspect and service wood-burning appliances. A study published in the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology has found regular inhalation of wood smoke limits immune activity and function, and anyone who burns wood indoors should be aware of these potential health risks. Ensuring proper ventilation of smoke and routinely cleaning the chimney can help cut down on particulate matter. € Turn to nontoxic cleaning products, pesticides and insecticides. Always opt for nontoxic, natural products when cleaning in and around the house. € Declutter the home. A cluttered, hectic space can affect emotions and mental state, never mind attracting dust and making a home harder to clean. Spending time in spaces that do not elicit stressful feelings is healthier and can help residents to rest and recharge. Making a home healthier can be on the list of this years renovation plans. HOMESFROM PAGE 1 to the growth of mold and mildew, which isnt healthy for anyone, including allergy sufferers, to breathe in. Invest in a HEPA “lter Vacuums with HEPA “lters can trap allergens that are so small that they pass through regular vacuum “lters. That means instead of containing them, these small particles are only being shot back into the air where they are easily breathed in. WebMD suggests vacuuming once or twice a week to keep carpets and ”oors as clean as possible. Plus, dont forget to vacuum upholstered furniture and drapes as well. Launder with hot water When it comes time to wash linens, do so in hot water, which can kill dust mites residing in sheets and blankets. Employ mattress covers to further protect against dust mite allergies. Shampoo smart Shampooing a carpet may cause moisture to become trapped in the carpet “bers, leading to increased dust mites or mold growth. Spotclean stains instead. Otherwise, hire a professional cleaner who will clean and dry the carpet as quickly as possible. Damp dusting is better When cleaning up dust or home renovation debris, use a damp cloth or a vinegar solution to wipe down surfaces. This helps trap small particles instead of sending them into the air. Treat mold issues Mold can trigger allergic reactions, so it is best to keep it out of a home. Solutions that contain at least 10 percent bleach can be effective at killing mold, but its best to prevent mold from growing entirely. That means keeping tabs of any moisture issues and addressing them immediately. Allergies can be problematic, but routine home cleaning in the right way can help alleviate symptoms.SPRINGFROM PAGE 1Wednesday, April 11, 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. „ Stop the Bleed: What everyone should know to stop bleeding after an injury.

BAYFRONT NEWS & NOTES Poisonous substances can be deadly. Many substances found in a typical home can be characterized as poisonous. While adults may know to avoid ingesting potentially toxic substances, curious youngsters rarely do, making household poisons an especially signi“cant threat to young children. The American Academy of Pediatrics notes that roughly three million people swallow or have contact with a poisonous substance every year. Many of those people are under the age of “ve. Curiosity in youngsters is good, indicating that kids are interested in their surroundings and looking to learn how the world around them works. Nurturing that curiosity is important for kids development. But its also important that parents take steps to prevent curious kids from accessing any of the number of potentially poisonous substances found in a typical household. € Install safety latches or locks on cabinets and drawers. Safety latches or childproof locks can prevent curious youngsters from accessing cabinets, drawers and other areas where cleaning products, medicines and any substances that are toxic or potentially harmful may be stored. Latches and locks are an inexpensive way to prevent children from accessing harmful chemicals, but parents should periodically check the locks to ensure theyre all still working properly. € Store medications safely out of the reach of children. Young children may see their parents taking medication and mistakenly assume the pills are candy. Storing pills in locked cabinets, top dresser drawers and/or on the top shelves of medicine cabinets can keep curious youngsters intent on mimicking mom and dad from taking adult medications. Make sure medications also are stored in bottles with childproof caps just in resourceful youngsters manage to “nd pills or other medicines. € Take medicines out of kids view. When taking pills or medicine, parents should try to do so when children are not looking. Parents also can turn their backs before taking pills so kids cannot see them. € Discard old medications. Many people do not “nish their medications. Adults who do not intend to or need to “nish their medications should discard the pills once they stop taking them. Consult with prescription information papers to determine the safest way to dispose of unwanted and/or expired medications. Simply placing them in the garbage might not be safe, as curious kids may “nd old pills in bathroom or bedroom garbage cans and mistake them for candy. If necessary, parents can call their local police departments to see if they have a drug collection program. € Store lawn and garden items in locked sheds or on high shelves in the garage. Items used to tend to lawns and gardens, such as fertilizers, some plants and gas cans, should be stored where children looking for their toys, tricycles or bicycles cannot “nd them. In addition, items that are not poisonous but are potentially harmful, such as pruning shears, should be stored beyond kids reach. Many substances around the house can be harmful to curious children. Taking measures to safeguard kids from such substances can ensure they are not poisoned.

Page 32 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 8, 2018 In a recent study, authors from Lee Health demonstrated that utilizing T2Dx diagnostic technology improved care for patients suspected of sepsis and reduced costs. Authored by Lee Health pharmacists Megan Patch, Pharm.D, Emily Weisz, Pharm.D, and Sandy Estrada, Pharm. D, the study was published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. The study found that patients suspected of a candida infection that were tested on the new technology received targeted therapy in only six hours compared to conventional testing practices that took 28 hours „ more than 4.5 times faster. Lee Health was the “rst health system in Florida to adopt the T2Dx Instrument and the T2Candida Panel, which detects candida, one of the deadliest sepsis-causing nfections. By using the new instrument, Lee Health clinicians were able to reduce empiric antifungal therapy for patients that did not have a candida infection, which led to savings in pharmacy costs. Due to the more targeted use of antifungals, the average duration of therapy was reduced by four days, discontinued after a single dose or avoided altogether in 58.4 percent of patients. This data demonstrates that innovation at Lee Health is leading to improved care for our patients and also reducing costs,Ž said John Armitstead, Lee Health System Director Pharmacy. The testing is helping to get our patients suspected of sepsis on the right therapy faster.Ž The new technology provides species-specific results in three to five hours without a blood culture, compared to two to six or more days for blood culture-reliant testing. In addition, it detects over 90 percent of infections, while blood culture misses approximately half of candida infections. Learn more at www.

But diagnosing gastric diseases may require patients to endure a tube stuck through the nose, down the throat and into the stomach. Scientists led by UC San Diego researchers say they have a better option for these patients. Theyve invented a stomach-monitoring device worn like a fanny pack. The prototype picks up the stomachs electrical signals through 10 electrodes stuck to the belly. Stomach activity changes with meals, sleep and other daily routines. Interruptions of these normal patterns can signal disease. Because it can be worn for up to 24 hours, those being monitored can go about their day without being con“ned to a hospital or doctors of“ce. Its paired with a smartphone app, so wearers can record their activities to associate with the devices readout. More work is being done to re“ne the device to improve patient care, said Todd Coleman, a UCSD bioengineering professor. This perhaps could be done by licensing it for commercialization. Children who wouldnt tolerate getting a tube through their nose without sedation are prime subjects for this technology, Coleman said. He led the study with Armen A. Gharibans, a bioengineering postdoctoral researcher in Colemans lab. The device was tested on 11 children who had simultaneously undergone monitoring via a catheter inserted through the nose, and one adult. The wearable device yielded useful and reliable data on stomach activity, the study found. Published March 22 in Nature Scienti“c Reports, it can be found at j.mp/ stomachmonitor. Adults can also bene“t from the continuous monitoring the device provides, he said. A lot of these disorders are transient,Ž Coleman said. Pains are not always there, and likewise for nausea.Ž In addition, it may not be easy to tell if gastrointestinal problems are what they appear on the surface, or a manifestation of mental stress. Is this basically a brain problem manifesting in the gut? Or do you have something fundamentally wrong with your gut?Ž Coleman said. We think that our technology has the potential to disambiguate that, which is huge because the treatments are very different.ŽDOCTORS AND ENGINEERSThis marriageŽ of engineering and medical specialists was necessary to make a workable prototype, Coleman said. By working side by side, engineers and physicians can identify and overcome obstacles in developing solutions to medical problems, he said. Personal motivation also made the project possible, said Coleman, whose father died of pancreatic cancer. It turns out he lost his mother, who passed before I was born, to stomach cancer,Ž Coleman said. So it was rather personal.Ž That motivation also fueled research funder Larry Smarr, a prominent UCSD physicist-futurist and father of Benjamin Smarr. The elder Smarr underwent a resection of his colon in 2016, having “rst assisted his surgeon by developing a high-resolution map of the region. Coleman said he had bonded with Smarr over the years, sharing a common interest in applying data and engineering principles to medicine, and the gastrointestinal system in particular. When I “rst got to UCSD, a lot of people looked to me as a person who builds these miniaturized sensors,Ž Coleman said. Larry came to realize that my original background is really data science and data analytics. And so when he saw some of the innovative things that we were doing, he and I just realized that were two birds of the same feather.ŽMEETING CHALLENGESStarting around 2012, Coleman researched previous attempts to develop noninvasive gastrointestinal monitoring. Knowledge of why these attempts failed helped the team solve these pitfalls, Coleman said. While the GI system is controlled by detectable electrical impulses, these are far fainter than the hearts electrical signals. That makes readouts prone to interference by the bodys other electrical signals. So extracting enough usable data proved to be a challenge. Armen Gharibans was a new PhD student in my group and I made him aware of this highrisk, high reward idea of trying to modernize assessment of the gut by monitoring its electrical rhythms,Ž Coleman said. He also said he had a hunch that previous efforts had failed because there was not a close cohesion between engineers and physicians. A seamlessŽ team encompassing those disciplines might address the problem. Keep in mind that at the time, this was not a sexy research area and virtually no one in the clinical community was using this readout. I applaud Armens willingness to nonetheless take this risk, congratulate him on his outstanding work, and am relieved that the bet paid off,Ž said Coleman.Wear this on your tummy and call me in the morningBy BRADLEY J.

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 33 FEELING FIT 9 Do we continue to add new neurons to our brain circuitry throughout our lives? Or does our neuron count remain “xed once we reach adulthood? The scienti“c debate rages on. In a report published Thursday in Cell Stem Cell, scientists from Columbia University present new evidence that our brains continue to make hundreds of new neurons a day, even after we reach our 70s, in a process known as neurogenesis. To come to this conclusion, lead author Dr. Maura Boldrini, a research scientist at Columbia Universitys department of psychiatry, and her colleagues looked at the brains of 28 deceased people aged 14 to 79. Their goal was to see whether aging affects neuron production. Previous research had shown that neurogenesis slows down in aging mice and nonhuman primates. Boldrinis group wanted to see whether a similar pattern occurred in humans. In each brain sample the researchers looked for evidence of neurons in various stages of development, including stem cells, intermediate progenitor cells that would eventually become neurons, immature neurons that had not fully developed, and new neurons. The team looked only at the hippocampus, in part because it is one of the few areas of the brain that previous research has shown can produce new neurons into adulthood. This region is involved in emotional control and resiliency, as well as memory, Boldrini said. In all their samples the researchers found similar numbers of neural progenitor cells and immature neurons, regardless of age. This led them to conclude that the human brain continues to make neurons even into old age. However, the researchers did uncover some differences in the brains of young people and older people. Speci“cally, they found that development of new blood vessels in the brain decreases progressively as people get older. They also discovered that a protein associated with helping new neurons to make connections in the brain decreased with age. We dont “nd fewer of the new neurons or fewer of the progenitors of new neurons, but we “nd that new neurons might make fewer connections,Ž Boldrini said. This might explain why some older people suffer from memory loss or exhibit less emotional resiliency, she said. These new “ndings were published one month after a team of researchers from the University of California, San Francisco reported in Nature that it was unable to “nd any evidence of neurogenesis after adolescence in humans at all. In an email statement, that group, which works out of developmental neuroscientist Arturo Alvarez-Buyllas lab, said that while they found the new studys evidence of declining blood vessel growth in the adult hippocampus interesting, they are not convinced that Boldrini and her colleagues found conclusive evidence of adult neurogenesis. Based on the representative images they present, the cells they call new neurons in the adult hippocampus are very different in shape and appearance from what would be considered a young neuron in other species, or what we have observed in humans in young children,Ž they wrote. They added that in their study, they looked not just at protein markers associated with different types of cells, as Boldrini and her team did, but also performed careful analysis of cell shape and structure using light and electron microscopes. That revealed that similarly labeled cells in our own adult brain samples proved to be neither young neurons nor neural progenitors, but rather non-neuronal glial cells expressing similar molecular markers,Ž they wrote. Boldrini points out that the two groups were working with very different samples. She and her team examined more than two dozen ”ash-frozen human brains, which were donated by families of the deceased at the time of death. The brains were immediately frozen and stored at minus-112 degrees Fahrenheit, which keeps the tissue from degrading. The other research team received brain samples from hospitals in China, Spain and the U.S., and the brain tissue they examined had not been preserved in the same way. Boldrini said the chemicals that were used to “x the brains could have interfered with their ability to detect new neurons. She also noted that while both groups were looking for signs of neurogenesis in the hippocampus region of the brain, her group had access to the entire hippocampus while the UCSF team was looking at thin slices of the tissue representing a small fraction of the brain. In science, the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence,Ž she said. If you cant “nd something it doesnt mean that it is not there 100 percent.Ž The debate continues.Scientists find signs of new brain cells in adults as old as 79By DEBORAH NETBURNLOS ANGELES TIMES PHOTO PROVIDEDA newborn neuron (upper left) in the brain of an older adult.In the 14 years since it was found in an abandoned mining town in Chiles Atacama Desert, the bizarre 6-inch skeleton has inspired fervid speculation, including theories of unearthly origins. It had 10 pairs of ribs-two fewer than the normal human complement-and an elongated skull with a pronounced point. Despite its diminutive size, the proportion of its limbs and torso suggested this was a human. Was this a stillborn baby? A nonhuman primate of some sort? An alien being? Now, genetic science has given these mummi“ed remains a species (Homo sapiens), a gender (female), an age (she probably died shortly after birth) and as many as 52 genetic clues to her extreme physical abnormalities (her bones appear to have aged at an accelerated pace). Not surprisingly, it has also narrowed her ancestry to a mix of peoples typical of those who settled the remote corner of Chile in which her remains were lovingly tucked into a pouch. Her genes suggest her ancestry was largely European and, to a lesser extent, East Asian. The mummi“ed skeleton has been called Ata,Ž and, starting roughly four years ago, researchers from Stanford University and the University of California, San Francisco isolated and puri“ed its DNA from marrow inside its tiny, preserved bones. Then they put a new generation of genetic sequencing technology to work. Some of the genetic mutations they found have not been recorded before „ not so surprising in a “eld in which the function of most genes, and of whole genetic regions, remains a mystery. Some mutations were probably carried and bequeathed by one parent only. Others appear to have been contributed by both. Still other mutations may have arisen spontaneously-a mystery that, in the absence of Atas parents genes, will probably endure. But among the welter of mutations they found were a half-dozen or more abnormalities in genes known to be associated with conditions such as dwar“sm, scoliosis and musculoskeletal abnormalities. During fetal development, and possibly in the few days of life she probably survived, those appear to have caused her bones to fuse and age at an unusual pace. By the time she succumbed, probably to breathing or feeding dif“culties or complications of a likely premature birth, the infants bones and the ways in which they had fused gave her the skeletal structure of a child between 6 and 8 years old. The number of mutations affecting bone structure and growth was well beyond what youd expect by chance,Ž said Stanford researcher Garry Nolan, the “rst academic researcher to be called in on the Ata case. The authors of the study, published Thursday in the journal Genome Research, speculated that the nitrate mining that had drawn settlers to the region in which Ata was found may have exposed her pregnant mother to some environmental toxin that contributed to the genetic wreckage. But it may as easily have been a chance event. When it came to genetic mutations affecting the structure and growth of bones, said Nolan, the child won a sort of grim lottery, which unfortunately was a death sentence.Ž Its rare „ very, very rareŽ to “nd so many mutations related to the same systems in a single person, he said. But if you roll the dice enough times youre going to come up snake eyes. And thats what happened with this unfortunate child.Ž Nolan was “rst asked by a documentary “lmmaker to consult on the case of Atas remains, which had made their way into a private collection in Barcelona, Spain. The producers of the “lm, titled Sirius,Ž suggested it was evidence of alien life on Earth. This ended up on our doorstop like a basket,Ž said Nolan, who directs the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institutes Proteomics Center for Systems Immunology at Stanford. It “rst was a curiosity. Then, it became a learning opportunity, a chance to ask questions without presupposing an answer.Ž The remains of a child like Ata do arouse intense curiosity, but they also teach scientists some valuable lessons about genetics, says Dr. Atul Butte, who conducted the genetic sequencing and co-authored the new study. Kids come in all the time now with unusual syndromes, and we use genetic analysis to help explain what were seeing,Ž said Butte, a professor of medicine and expert in pediatric genetic diseases at UC San Francisco. Most of the time were looking for one gene thats gone wrong.Ž What geneticists are learning, Butte said, is that you shouldnt stop at one. There might be many mutationsŽ that contribute to an observed abnormality. It happens, as Atas case demonstrates. We tend to love Occams razor,Ž the philosophical principle that challenges scientists to look for the simplest solution to a problem, Butte said. But maybe theres more than one thing wrong.Ž Nolan, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford, sees other lessons emerging from Atas tiny remains. By offering evidence for the combined effects of recognized genetic mutations, the study of Ata might guide medical scientists in devising ways to grow bone more quickly. Or it may prompt geneticists to devise a prenatal test that could diagnose some or all of Atas abnormalities at the fetal stage, he said. Nolan said it certainly gives scientists an instructive case study in one of genetic sciences thorniest problems: how to align what they “nd in the genes with the traits they see in the person (in scienti“c parlance, how to link genotype with phenotype). Butte is deeply cautious about scientists ability to do that anytime soon. In his day job, he has seen a single genetic mutation in children with grievous abnormalities, and mutations in entire chunks of DNAŽ in children with few, if any, negative effects. I still dont think we understand how unusual normal humans can be,Ž Butte said. There still could be very many differences in humans than we understand. If its not humbling it should be humbling. Were not even close to that yet.ŽMystery solved: Tiny skeleton belonged to a human girl with a combination of rare genetic defectsBy MELISSA HEALYLOS ANGELES TIMES PHOTO PROVIDEDLess than 6 inches long, this humanoid skeleton was found in 2003 in Chile.

Page 34 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 8, 2018 One of the goals of your “tness program should be to develop and maintain adequate levels of muscular strength. In addition to increasing strength and muscle mass, other bene“ts of your participation in a well planned and executed muscle strengthening program are the following: € An improvement in the performance of your daily tasks. € Delaying or preventing the onset of osteoporosis. € Reducing your risk of injuries. € Preventing or managing low-back pain. The results of several studies have shown strength training to be of great importance to seniors. In general, seniors who participate regularly in a safe and well planned strength training program seem to maintain strong and well de“ned muscles. The key to strengthening a muscle or muscle group is to have that muscle or muscle group perform against workloads that are above those normally encountered. This is the principle of overload. The workload should be increased periodically until a desired maximum is reached. This is the principle of progressive resistance. You should always begin your strength training session with a warm up period. Also, when starting the program, it is best to begin with light weights and high repetition (e.g.: 12 reps). After a month or so you may then emphasize high poundage (heavier weights) and lower reps (six to eight reps). In addition to the above, the following are also important: € It is always best to work the larger groups of muscles before conditioning the smaller ones. In addition, your routine (selected exercises) should be arranged so that no one muscle group is exercised twice in succession. € Your weight training session should be conducted 3 times each week or every other day. The seriousŽ bodybuilder may increase the number of days. € The intensity of the exercises performed is also important. Muscles are conditioned best when a weight that can only be lifted between 6 and 8 times is used and when the six to eight repetition (one set) is performed three times. € Working your muscles and not permitting them to recuperate properly is one sure way of weakening them and, quite possibly, causing them to decrease in mass. Your muscles, like you, require food and rest if they are to grow and be made strong. Make use of a balanced diet with some emphasis placed on protein foods. € It is often helpful to make use of the services of a competent trainer or other “tness professional.

Middle-class, loving and involved mothers, they met faithfully once a week in a well-attended support group in Naperville with dozens of others struggling to stay a”oat in that same lifeboat: keeping their children alive while working to get themselves and the rest of their families as healthy as possible. Then in 2017, one after the other, their sons overdosed and died. Spencer Fink, who went to Neuqua Valley High School, was found dead in January in the bathroom of a halfway house in Florida, from an overdose of a heroin/fentanyl mix, his mother said. He was 26 and in his last year of law school. Bryan Gonzalez, a 29-year-old Columbia College grad and well-established musician and sound engineer, was found dead in June, also from fentanyl and heroin, in an abandoned garage in Chicago, his mother said. It was his third and “nal relapse after almost a year of sobriety. Matthew Dale, an Oswego High School grad who became a union pipe“tter, lost his life at age 26 a couple weeks before Christmas inside a car in Arizona, where hed started life anew after being clean for almost two and a half years. His mother only found out recently the of“cial cause of death was an accidental overdose from heroin. One by one, in six-month intervals, all three of their mothers became graduates of a support group that no longer seemed relevant. Just like that, all the issues that were so monumental to them and the other parents worrying their kid may not come home at night, for example seemed sadly inconsequential. I did not feel like I belonged anymore,Ž said Fink, a stay-at-home mom who tried to do everything by the bookŽ when raising her family. In that group, the parents still have hope,Ž she said. For me, there is no more hope.Ž Those sentiments were echoed by Dale, who has been a longtime advocate of opioid prevention and education in Oswego and surrounding communities. Until you lose a child, there is no way to imagine what it is like,Ž she said, adding that even other grief groups fell short because of the way the members children died. A lot of people,Ž said Dale, cant share with others because of the stigma, because of the shame.Ž And so, Fink, Dale and Gonzalez formed what they say is the “rst support group in this area for those who have lost a loved one to addiction. When the need arose to start this group, I knew it was my calling,Ž said Gonzalez, I know my son would be so proud of me.Ž The “rst Gone Too SoonŽ meeting earlier this month was attended by about a dozen people, but they know there are so many more struggling to cope after the overdose death of a loved one. And they are prepared to expand as needed to accommodate what we all know is a growing epidemic in communities across the nation. Recently, U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan met with DuPage County of“cials in Wheaton to discuss ways to “ght this scourge that, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, is claiming 175 lives a day. We are,Ž said Fink, killing off a generation of intelligent people who could have the answer to our problems.Ž All three young men, who came from loving intact and involved families, seem to have “t that description. Gonzalez said her son Bryan was in gifted programs throughout his years in the Bolingbrook school system, made the deans list at Columbia and was well-established and well-loved in the music industry, even while battling his addiction. Fink said her son Spencer was so academically talented that when he graduated to harder drugs after starting with marijuana in eighth grade, the school was not that concerned because his grades were not affected.Ž He was good-looking, brilliant and could light up a room when he entered it,Ž said Fink, who even went back to school to become a drug counselor to try and help him. But Spencer also was likely “ghting mental illness, and chose to use illegal drugs to medicate rather than legal drugs that could have helped him,Ž she said. Because there is no history of addictions or mental illness in her family, Gonzalez said she still struggles with why her son, after taking that “rst hit of heroin at age 19, became so consumed by the evilŽ that, during three relapses, he pawned all he ownedŽ to feed his habit, including his beloved guitar. Fink says her son was in his last year of law school when he started using again. Six months later, while he was in a halfway house with a Florida treatment center, two Naperville police of“cers knocked on her door, handed her and husband Russ a piece of paper that contained the name and phone number of a Florida detective, but offered no more information. Thinking their son had gotten in some kind of legal trouble, the couple called the number, only to be informed by the of“cer on the other end of the line that we are investigating the death of Spencer Fink.Ž It was like someone took a gun to our gut and shot us,Ž she said. Fourteen months later, Fink says shes strong enough now that she wants to work with police departments on better ways to inform families of fatal overdoses. And she and her co-founders which include Terri Koller of Oswego are open to other ideas on how this new group can not only be a support to others but be more effective in tackling issues so many grieving families face. Gone Too SoonŽ meets the “rst and third Thursday of every month at Wheatland Salem Church, in Naperville. Advocacy, they insist, will be a major part of their focus.

Theres a stigma to Parkinsons, and the best way to remove a stigma is remove shame. Socially, people will distance themselves from you if they dont understand the symptoms of the disease-like a tremor or a rigid gait,Ž Gaylord said. If I sit next to you and I have a tremor and you dont know what it is, youll kind of distance yourself from me because of your unfamiliarity with that.Ž And while Parkinsons is a serious disease that will require lifestyle changes, it is not a death sentence. People need to know there are people like myself who live very well with Parkinsons for a long period of time. The Expo coming up is a free regional event expected to attract more than 1,000. It will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 14 at Robarts Arena in Sarasota.

Clare had expressed a wish to have the epiglottis surgery here, but the family doctor still wanted him back to Canada where he could get better long term care and follow up.Ž In the “rst week of January, Clare was transferred to a hospice facility. On Jan. 8, a hospice physicians advised the family that Clare had only a few days to live. Bill said the family seemed resigned to Clares situation and was ready to let nature take its course. Clare died in the hospice on Jan. 12. He was 78. We will never know if a ”ight home might have saved him,Ž said Bill. Bill said Betty decided to share her story publicly hoping it might help others in a similar situation. It may be little comfort to know that the Thomases are not alone. Another Toronto man with pneumonia died in Florida in early March while awaiting a hospital bed in Ontario. Yet another, Bryan Sockett, 72, was stricken in the Dominican Republic and couldnt “nd an Ontario hospital that would commit to providing an intensive care bed, so his health insurer so moved him to a Florida hospital, where he died on Jan. 19. On March 9, the Windsor Star related the story of David Williams, a resident of Belle River in Ontario and a Tampa snowbird who underwent emergency heart bypass surgery in Florida after frantic and stressful weeks in which his family tried, unsuccessfully, to “nd him a hospital bed in Ontario.Ž We were told there were no beds available in Ontario,Ž Williams, 71, told the paper. Our insurance company couldnt get me home.Ž Williams and his wife, Carol own a Tampa Bay trailer for winter stays and have travel insurance coverage. Their insurer wanted him back home for medical care and surgery following a Jan. 4 heart attack. After three weeks of lying in a hospital near Tampa, however, Williams said his American cardiologist advised him he couldnt wait any longer. Williams had double bypass surgery Jan. 24. He was cleared to ”y home Feb. 12, accompanied on the trip by a nurse provided by his insurer. There have been other reports of Ontarian patients stranded abroad. The cause is what the Toronto Globe and Mail called an unfolding health-care crisis in Ontario that requires serious action,Ž in a January editorial written by Jon Dwyer, a Toronto businessman and member of the citys innovation economy advisory council. We have each seen the signs in recent years,Ž Dwyer wrote, and heard the stories: surgeries cancelled at the last minute due to a patient backlog; elderly loved ones kept on gurneys in hallways for hours or even days; ER wards choked with patients waiting for care. Even Ottawas Childrens Hospital of Eastern Ontario recently warned families about waiting times to treat children in the emergency department.Ž Last fall, the Ontario government announced it was spending $100 million to add hundreds of new beds to hospitals across the province to address the issue of overcrowded wards. It appears that the Ontario government and the Canadian hospital organizations are at least going to try to investigate the issue and hopefully “nd a solution,Ž Bill Hay said. On the day after Clare died, Bill said Betty, her son and daughter-in-law come to the dance class to share hugs, kisses and tears.Ž Bill and his wife are returning to Canada at the end of April. He promised to keep up to date on any developments related to the hospital situation in Ontario. Comments and suggestions are always welcome. Call Dan Mearns at 941-893-9692 or email danmearns@gmail.com.MEARNSFROM PAGE 1 Every week since October of 2016, a group of individuals with a diagnosis of Parkinsons disease get together to improve the way they communicate. The LOUD Crowd is a sort of Toastmasters for people with Parkinsons. The weekly class, led by local speech-language pathologist, Mary Spremulli, MA,CCC-SLP, is modeled after a speech therapy program, SPEAK OUT!, which was developed at the Parkinsons Voice Project, a non-forpro“t organization in Richardson, Texas. LOUD Crowd class members have all participated in individual speech therapy addressing their speci“c problems, but because Parkinsons is a progressive disease, group members realize that if they stop the daily speech and voice practice at home, they will eventually detrain and lose the bene“ts of therapy. So, coming together each week to practice helps re-enforce what was learned in speech therapy, and the group setting provides peer support, feedback, and friendship, which seem to be the elements that keep group members motivated to attend each week. The Charlotte County LOUD Crowd meets every Thursday from 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. in the aerobics room of Universal Fitness, 1544 Rio De Janeiro Ave., Deep Creek. The class has steadily grown from 5 to 15 participants, all with a Parkinsons diagnosis ranging in onset from 2 years to over 25 years. There is no fee to attend the class, and all that is asked of group members is that they make a commitment to themselves and each other to attend each week. Several spouses, who provide transportation, have formed their own wives club,Ž and report bene“ting from the friendships that have developed. Speech and swallowing changes may be some of the pre-clinical symptoms of Parkinsons disease with as many as many as 70 percent to 90 percent of people with Parkinson developing a speech and voice disorder. So, just as exercise is recommended to help with movement, speci“c exercises to improve speech, voice, and swallowing should also start as early as possible. LOUD Crowd member, Mike Davidson, a Punta Gorda resident, has participated in the class for over a year, and at a recent support group meeting, he encouraged others by saying: The weekly LOUD Crowd has given me the structure, guidance and incentive for my voice exercise program, starting exercise early has been an important part of my care. Its dif“cult to regain a skill that you have lost to Parkinsons and learning to speak with intent has improved my speech and swallowing.Ž To learn more about speech therapy programs for people with Parkinsons disease, including The LOUD Crowd or if you would like LOUD Crowd members to speak to your group or organization, call Voice Aerobics at 941-204-1515 or email info@voice aerobicsdvd.com.

Talking to your doctor about any health concern can be tough, particularly when symptoms catch you by surprise or cause concern. And when it comes to Parkinsons disease (PD), experts say there are many symptoms that often go unreported at doctors appointments, making them dif“cult to diagnose and treat. For example, many people are aware of visible symptoms associated with PD, like resting tremors and loss of balance. However, more than half of people living with Parkinsons also experience a lesser known aspect of the disease-hallucinations and delusions. Over time, these symptoms may increase in frequency or become bothersome, as a person with Parkinsons becomes less able to distinguish between what is real and whats not. Fortunately, these symptoms often can be addressed.Ž says Neal Hermanowicz, MD, director of the Parkinsons Disease & Movement Disorders Program at the University of California, Irvine. To help you prepare for your appointment with a PD specialist, Dr. Hermanowicz says to consider the following statements, and if they apply to you, to tell your doctor at your next appointment. € I sometimes feel out of touch with reality. € Others tell me that what I am hearing, seeing or sensing (e.g., people, animals or objects) are not actually there (hallucinations). € I have beliefs or fears that a loved one (perhaps a spouse, caregiver or friend) is stealing from me or being unfaithful (delusions). Dr. Hermanowicz also suggests that caregivers prepare for the next appointment by considering the following statements and speaking to their loved ones PD specialist if any of them apply. € I have observed my loved one interacting with things, seeing things or sensing things that are not there (hallucinations). € My loved one has had false beliefs toward me or others, such as believing someone is stealing from them or being unfaithful (delusions). € These experiences have affected our daily life.

LIAM RICHARDS/THE CANADIAN PRESS VIA APHumboldt mayor Rob Muench, in the Broncos team jersey, along with other mourners lay down ower on the stairs that enter to Elg ar Petersen Arena, home of the Humboldt Broncos, in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada on Saturday. NIPAWIN, Saskatchewan „ A semi-trailer slammed into a bus carrying a youth hockey team in western Canada, killing 15 people and injuring 14 in a catastrophic collision that a doctor compared to an airstrike and left the vehicles obliterated in the snow. The crash sent shockwaves through the teams small hometown and a country united by the national sport. Canadians were moved to tears on Saturday as they learned of the identities of the deceased on the bus that was driving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team to a crucial playoff game Friday against the Nipawin Hawks. An entire country is in shock and mourning,Ž Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said. This is every parents worst nightmare. No one should ever have to see their child leave to play the sport they love and never come back.Ž The bus had 29 passengers, including the driver, when it crashed at about 5 p.m. on Highway 35, police said. Among the dead are Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan, team captain Logan Schatz and radio announcer Tyler Bieber. Authorities earlier said three were in critical but later provided an update to say that 15 have now died. Canadian police said the truck driver was initially detained but has since been released and provided with mental health assistance. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki said its too early to state a cause for the crash. In a tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump said he called Trudeau to offer his condolences to the families of victims. Darren Opp, president of the Nipawin Hawks, who the Broncos were set to play against, said a semi T-boned the players bus „ an account police con“rmed. Its a horrible accident, my God,Ž Opp said. Hassan Masri, an emergency room doctor at Saskatoons Royal University Hospital who has done work in wartorn Syria, said the crash reminded him of an airstrike. Photographs of the wreckage showed the twisted trailer with most of its wheels in the air and the bus on its side and its back portion destroyed. Kelly Schatz, Logans father, says his 20-year-old son played for the Broncos for just over four years and had served as team captain for the past 2 years. Meanwhile, tributes poured in online for coach Haugan, a father of two who was described as an amazing mentor to young players. The names of others killed have not been con“rmed.

Providence County, the states most populous, is the only place where the Census Bureau is running a full test, after plans to test two other sites this year were canceled because of a lack of funding from Congress. A planned question about citizenship that has states suing the federal government isnt on the test. Several elected of“cials and leaders of advocacy and community groups this week held an emergency press conferenceŽ to raise concerns, which include a shortage of publicity around the test and its limited language outreach in an immigrant-heavy county, with large communities from countries including the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Portugal and Cape Verde. If we dont get it right here, then the countrys not going to get it right,Ž Democratic Lt. Gov. Dan McKee warned. The concerns in Rhode Island are the latest evidence of mounting apprehension over the 2020 census. Seventeen states and six cities, including Rhode Island and its largest city, Providence, sued the federal government on Tuesday to block a question the administration of Republican President Donald Trump announced last month it would ask about citizenship. The 2020 census will be the “rst to give respondents the option of answering online. Census Bureau of“cials say that the Rhode Island test is on track, and that theyre focused on ensuring new technology works, including a smartphone app being used by canvassers and cloud computing. Theres things that arent exactly KHUZAA, Gaza Strip „ Thousands of Palestinians protested along Gazas sealed border with Israel on Friday, engul“ng the volatile area in black smoke from burning tires to try to block the view of Israeli snipers and cheering a Hamas strongman who pledged that the border fence will eventually fall. Israeli troops opened “re from across the border, killing at least nine Palestinians and wounding 491 others „ 33 of them seriously „ in the second mass border protest in a week, Gaza health of“cials said. A well-known Palestinian journalist was among the dead, and hundreds of others suffered other injuries, including tear gas inhalation, the of“cials said. The deaths brought the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli “re since last week to at least 31. Early Saturday, Palestinian health of“cials con“rmed that Yasser Murtaga had died from a gunshot wound sustained while covering demonstrations near the Israeli border in Khuzaa. The area was the scene of large protests Friday, and was covered in thick black smoke. Murtaga was over 100 yards from the border, wearing a ”ak jacket marked pressŽ and holding his camera when he was shot in an exposed area just below the armpit. Journalists were in the area as protesters were setting tires on “re. The Israeli military has said it “red only at instigatorsŽ involved in attacks on soldiers or the border fence. It had no immediate comment.

SMITHASSOCIATED PRESSBy FARES AKRAM and MOHAMMED DARAGHMEHASSOCIATED PRESSMUENSTER, Germany „ A van crashed into people drinking outside a popular bar Saturday in the German city of Muenster, killing two people and injuring 20 others before the driver of the vehicle shot and killed himself inside it, police said. A top German security of“cial said there was no indication of an Islamic extremist motive but of“cials were investigating all possibilities in the deadly crash that took place at 3:27 p.m. on a warm spring day. Witnesses said people ran away screaming from the city square after the crash. Police quickly set up a large cordoned-off area for their investigation and ambulances rushed to the site. Six of the 20 injured were in severe condition, according to police spokesman Andreas Bode. Herbert Reul, the interior minister of North RhineWestphalia state, where Muenster is located, said the driver of the gray van was a German citizen. He stressed that the investigation was at an early stage but said at the moment, nothing speaks for there being any Islamist background.Ž We have to wait, and we are investigating in all directions,Ž Reul said, adding that it was clearly not an accident. Reul said two people were killed in the crash and the driver killed himself „ lower than the earlier police toll of three dead plus the driver. Police spokesman Peter Nuessmeyer told The Associated Press that he could not con“rm German media reports that the perpetrator reportedly had psychological issues. Bode told reporters that police were checking witness reports that other perpetrators might have ”ed from the van at the scene. Hours later, police spokeswoman Vanessa Arlt said we didnt “nd anything (to those reports) but were still investigating in all directions and not excluding anything.Ž Police tweeted that residents should avoid the area near the Kiepenkerl pubŽ in the citys historic downtown area where Germany seeks motive after van crashes into crowd, killing 2By KIRSTEN GRIESHABER and FERDINAND OSTROPASSOCIATED PRESS CROWD | 5 HOCKEY | 5 CENSUS | 5 PROTEST | 5 Seen here is a welcome sign honoring the members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada, Saturday.

He would send your columns to me every week with comments. Two years ago, he had a stroke. According to his brokerage statement, he owns two stocks: 400 shares of Citigroup and 3,000 shares of MGIC Investment Corp. In January 2009, he bought 4,000 shares of Citigroup as a gamble at $1.20 per share. Its now selling for $73 a share. But for some reason, Dads 4,000-share investment is now 400 shares. A new stockbroker at his brokerage told me that he has no record of Dads selling Citigroup and mumbled something about a revised splitŽ that was unintelligible. Dads notes say you told him that big banks „ such as the Bank of New York Mellon, Bank of America, Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase „ were too big to go bankrupt and that the Federal Reserve would step in to do anything necessary to save all the major banks. In the fall of 2012, on your recommendation, Dad bought 3,000 shares of MGIC Investment Corp. at 90 cents a share. His notes say you said that MGIC was on its way to a recovery and that the stock would sell at $15 a share in the future. Well, MGIC did recover, and its now trading at $12.20. Ive never seen this rate of pro“t before, so please tell me what to do. I know nothing about stocks. „ AD, Detroit Dear AD: Unfortunately, you have me confused with somebody else. There are thousands of brokers in this country, and I think 12 of them are named Malcolm. Perhaps one of those Malcolms could be the somebody else.Ž Ive never recommended MGIC, and I dont recall anyone ever asking me about this stock. And Ive never recommended Citigroup. Ive never liked the stock. In the past, Ive commented negatively about both Citigroup and Bank of America because I believe that their management stinks and their board members are a clique of wealthy toadies whod barely qualify for board positions at a roach paste factory. Citigroup didnt have a revisedŽ split. I think that new broker needs to be vaccinated for stupidity. However, about two years after your dad bought Citigroup, its board of directors declared a 1-for-10 reverseŽ split to put some oomph in the stock price. So every 1,000 shares of C your dad owned became 100 shares. His 4,000 shares of C, which were trading at $1.20 ($4,800) when he bought them, became 400 shares trading at $12 a share, still valued at $4,800. Today C is $73, and his 400 shares are worth $29,200. Your dad has a smart pro“t of $24,400. Keep C. MGIC Investment Corp. (MTG-$12.20) is among the largest providers of private mortgage insurance (primarily for residential “rst mortgages), which protects lenders against default on loans with low or no down payments. MGIC also provides various related services, including claims administration and contract underwriting. After losing over $8 billion between 2007 and 2014 „ and as the housing market improved „ MGIC began putting its house in order, and pro“ts started rolling in. This year, management expects to earn $1.75 a share on $1.1 billion in revenues, and Wall Street is looking for sustainable forward growth, as buyer incomes, home sales and values still appear strong. MGICs business seems to be on an upward trajectory, supported by a favorable economic background and low interest rates. Though MTG doesnt pay a dividend and wont for a while, the Street expects the stock price to double in three to four years. But I completely disagree with the Street! Your dad has a gain of $11.30 per share on 3,000 shares, or $33,900, and thats a dandy pro“t. Sell the stock. Those are two excellent trades that I would never have recommended. Kudos to the old broker for his excellent perspicacity and swell advice. Please address your “nancial questions to Malcolm Berko, P.O. Box 8303, Largo, FL 33775, or email him at mjberko@ yahoo.com.Good Advice From a Different Guy Malcolm Berko PORTLAND, Maine „ The harvest of soft-shell clams is dwindling along the coast of New England, where the shell“sh are embedded in the culture as much as the tidal muck. Soft-shell clams, also called steamersŽ or longnecks,Ž are one of the northeastern U.S.s most beloved seafood items, delighting shoreside diners in fried clam rolls, clam strips and clam chowders. But the nationwide harvest fell to a little less than 2.8 million pounds of meat in 2016, the lowest total since 2000, and there are new signs of decline in Maine. The Pine Tree State produces more of the clams than any other, and state regulators there say clam harvesters collected a little more than 1.4 mill ion pounds of the shell“sh last year. Thats the lowest total since 1930, and less than half a typical haul in the earlyand mid-1980s. The clam “shery is coping with a declining number of “shermen, a warming ocean, harmful algal blooms in the marine environment and growing populations of predator species, said regulators and scientists who study the “shery. It leaves clammers like Chad Cof“n, of Freeport, Maine, concerned the harvest will decline to the point it will be dif“cult to make a living. It has been a gradual decline, and its getting to the point where theres a tremendous amount of acreage thats not producing anymore,Ž Cof“n said. It should drop signi“cantly more over the next two years.Ž The clams are still readily available to consumers, but the number of harvesters digging for them has slipped to about 1,600 in Maine. It was more than 2,000 as recently as 2015. The clams are also harvested in smaller numbers in Massachusetts, New York and Maryland, and the haul has been more steady in those states in recent years, helping keep prices about the same. The value of Maines clams dipped by nearly $4 million last year, in part due to supply from areas outside the state, the state Department of Marine Resources announced in March. Department public health bureau director Kohl Kanwit attributed Maines diminished harvest to clamming closures necessitated by algal blooms that render the shell“sh unsafe to eat. Growing numbers of crabs, “sh and worms that eat the clams are another problem, said Brian Beal, a professor of marine ecology at the University of Maine at Machias. The growth of predators could be tied to rising ocean temperatures in the Gulf of Maine, which is a trend that “gures to continue, Beal said. Seawater temperature is driving the biological and environmental factors that regulate clam populations,Ž Beal said. That spells doom and gloom for the clamming industry and probably for other industries as well.Ž Soft-shell clams are one of several types of clams people buy in grocery stores and restaurants. Clammers collect them by raking for them in tidal areas, while some other species are harvested by boats at sea. The clams are the signature item of a popular summer festival in Yarmouth, Maine, and are central to beloved 1950s-era Maine childrens story One Morning in MaineŽ by Robert McCloskey.Harvest of clams continues to dwindle in New EnglandBy PATRICK WHITTLEASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 28, 2017 le photo, local softshell clams are displayed at a Portland, Maine, sh market.

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATION DETROIT „ A striking, sepia-to ned picture recently acquired by the University of Michigan jumps out from the past and begs to tell a story: A man dressed in a heavy coat and hat is as big as the cabin door whose knob he is reaching to turn and enter. The picture is labeled simply, Big Jim.Ž The rare photo is among 30 acquired by the Bentley Historical Library last year from a private donor that capture a place and time often overlooked by history: black Civilian Conservation Corps camps in Michigan and elsewhere during the Great Depression. The photos are the only known images of the states segregated, all-black camps. President Franklin Roosevelt established the corps in the early 1930s, offering shelter, clothing, food and wages to a vast armyŽ of unemployed men who worked to conserve and restore national resources. As the people and stories behind the pictures are increasingly lost to time, the university posted them online and launched a public call for information. So far, Big Jims story is the only one thats been “lled in, thanks to people who knew him and responded: He was James Richardson, a quiet, strong, hard-working rural Michigan farmer who served in World War I and went on to join the CCC. For the archivists, it represents delayed but welcome recognition for the contributions of workers who faced discrimination and marginalization during a dark economic era. What I liked about the photographs is they show that these young guys were doing work on parks, trails, out in the woods „ way away from their homes,Ž said Morris Thomas, who as a child knew Richardson and identi“ed him for Michigan researchers after seeing his image in a state history magazine. It is something unique; there arent that many photos available.Ž Eighty-“ve years after the Civilian Conservation Corps creation, any cache of this kind is a boon to historians. Photographs from designated black camps are far less common than from white camps. Thomas, now 75, says his family also had photos of an uncle who worked in a black camp but laments, Now we cant “nd them.Ž Despite the legacy of segregation, the photos and stories they conjure reveal elements of unexpected egalitarianism and advancement. That was a tremendous thing for black people,Ž said Thomas cousin Frank Thomas, who as a boy often spent time with Richardson and neighborhood friends. There were really no jobs for black people at that time, only menial jobs. All those guys got a chance to ... show people they can work and can do anything anybody else can do.Ž CCC camps initially were integrated, according to the university, but became segregated by 1935 amid community protests. Out of Michigans roughly 150 camps, some 16 were designated for black men. Black membership was capped at 10 percent of the overall corps, which numbered around 3 million over the course of the program. The Michigan History Center says the states black camps helped build a ski area and contributed to efforts to plant millions of trees, “ght forest “res, construct bridges and buildings, and establish public campgrounds. The CCC camps did tremendous things to better the commun ity for both black and white people,Ž Frank Thomas said. Put in playgrounds, all that stuff.Ž Joan Sharpe, president of the Civilian Conservation Corps Legacy, said the segregation in the camps re”ected U.S. society at the time. Still, she added, that doesnt erase the opportunities it provided for people of all races. The guys Ive talked to that were in the CCC camps that were black were very grateful ... to have access to education, access to vocational training, learn how to lay stone, build roads „ things they would not have had before,Ž said Sharpe, whose group serves and supports CCC alumni. I have to look at it from their perspective,Ž she added. Their story and station in life would be very different than us looking back on it and saying, Oh, how awful.Ž After leaving the CCC, Richardson continued his hard-working ways, according to Thomas and his cousin. He tended to his 40-acre farm in Manistee County and did odd jobs such as cutting logs and hauling pulpwood to a paper mill. Local legend has it that he once lifted a Model A for someone with a ”at tire and once attached a plow to himself to take over for a stubborn horse. He died in 1959 at age 65. Frank Thomas, 79, believes Big JimŽ served as a big ambassador for black people,Ž and can still be for people who see his picture and hear his story. Youd think of a man that size he would be aggressive, but I never heard tell or saw any indication of that,Ž he said. That goes long way in race relations and community relations.ŽPhotos show black work camps during Great DepressionBy JEFF KAROUBASSOCIATED PRESS BENTLEY HISTORICAL LIBRARY VIA APIn a photo provided by the Bentley Historical Library, unidentied Civilian Conservation Corps members are seen in an undated photo.

April, May and June are the most active months in the U.S. for tornadoes. At the same time, the three states on the southern end of Tornado Alley are experiencing extreme and exceptional drought that could fuel wild“res. Tornado Alley extends from northern Texas and covers much of Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota, plus slivers of New Mexico and Colorado, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Storm Prediction Center. The past three years, the U.S. has seen an average of more than 600 tornadoes during April, May and June, according to the center. That is more than half the average of 1,186 tornadoes per year during that time span, although the numbers from the last three months of 2017 are still considered preliminary. Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas are accustomed to preparing for multiple emergency situations happening at once and train with various agencies to account for different possibilities. Were typically preparing for worst-case scenarios year-round anyway,Ž state Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Keli Cain said, noting that the SPC reports Oklahoma City has been struck by more tornadoes than any other U.S. city, with more than 100 known twisters. We do have some experience at that. We plan for all hazards anyway.Ž Katie Horner, spokeswoman for the Kansas adjutant generals division of emergency management, said last year the state dealt with a blizzard, an ice storm, “re, ”ooding and a tornado warning all in the same week. We train not only for one or two events in a day, but three or four events in a day,Ž she added. Chip Orton, the emergency management director for Amarillo, a city of about 200,000 in the Texas Panhandle, says, My job is to be worried. Thats why we come to work every day. Is it likely? Probably not. Could it happen? Sure,Ž he said. While tornadoes are the result of thunderstorms, which are created from conditions that include moisture, the current dry conditions in the area do not preclude twisters, said Storm Prediction Center meteorologist Patrick Marsh. He noted that two tornadoes were reported in the Texas Panhandle on March 18, even as the area was rated in extreme drought. Some private forecasting services are predicting an increase in tornadoes during the coming months, based largely on the fact that there was the climate phenomenon La Nina during the past winter. Theyre expecting weather patterns in the coming months to be wetter and warmer than usual, particularly in the southeastern U.S. and along the Gulf Coast. (Those conditions) would be a petri dish for thunderstorms. You need to add an additional ingredient for tornados. ... You need wind shear. Wind shear is best described as a change in wind speed and direction,Ž Marsh said, and is created when cold air and warm air collide at the surface. The national Storm Prediction Center, however, does not forecast severe weather more than about a week in advance.Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas facing tornado and wildfire threatsBy KEN MILLERASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this Monday, May 20, 2013 le photo, a tornado moves past homes in Moore, Okla. Emergency ocials in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas are bracing for the start of whats historically the most active time of year for tornadoes while also facing wildre threats because of severe drought conditions. SAN BRUNO, Calif. „ When word spread that the YouTube shooter wasnt a disgruntled man but a woman, the almost immediate assumption was dead wrong: that she was a spurned lover intent on killing her boyfriend. The quick explanation, attributed to witnesses and unidenti“ed law enforcement sources, “rst streamed across the bottom of newscast crawlers and on news sites. They reported that a domestic dispute had driven Nasim Aghdam to sneak into YouTubes San Bruno headquarters at lunchtime Tuesday and critically wound one man and injure two women before killing herself. When I heard that, I literally smacked my hand into my forehead,Ž said Jaclyn Schildkraut, an expert on mass shootings and an assistant professor of public justice at Oswego State University in New York. It was like, Oh, it must be domestic violence because she was a woman.Ž While female shooters in public places are rare, history shows that love is never behind such attacks. Like men, female shooters „ including Aghdam „ appear to have been motivated by resentment and anger. The spurned womanŽ assumption in Tuesdays tragedy is an example of enduring sexism and a double standard, Schildkraut said. Of the 14 mass shootingsŽ committed by women between 1966 and 2016 „ only 4 percent of all mass shootings „ not one was fueled by a domestic dispute. In interviews with Aghdams family and in numerous videos she posted on YouTube, it became clear late Tuesday that she was furious at YouTube for what she perceived as the censoring of her graphic anti-animal cruelty videos and her pro-vegan stances that had made her a minor social media celebrity in Iran. She apparently didnt know anyone at YouTube. Women practicing at a shooting range in Santa Clara this week rolled their eyes at the mistaken motive that she was a lover seeking vengeance. Its a little offensive,Ž said Ashley Katena, 29, who had come with a female friend to Reeds Shooting Range in Santa Clara. That its because shes an emotional female going on a rampage against her spouse.Ž So why were the media and public so eager to accept the explanation of a scorned woman? Although women are more likely to target people they know, including domestic partners and children, they are less likely to use a gun, more often choosing poison or suffocation, according to Schildkrauts research. And those crimes tend to happen closer to home. Women who commit such shootings at public places are all the more rare and tend to do so at places that are familiar to them „ their own workplaces or schools. The most memorable woman school shooter remains perhaps one of the “rst: In 1979, 16-yearold Brenda Spencer “red a .22 caliber ri”e from her house to the schoolyard across the street in San Diego, killing the school principal and custodian and wounding a police of“cer and eight children. When a San Diego Tribune reporter reached her by phone and asked why she was “ring on school children, she uttered a response that would be made into a musical hit by the British band Boomtown Rats: I dont like Mondays.Ž At the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2010, biology professor Amy Bishop, who had been denied tenure, opened “re at a department meeting, killing three and wounding three. These shooters have similar types of grievances, whether they are perceived or actual, that male shooters do,Ž said Schildkraut, co-author of Mass Shootings, Media, Myths and Realities.Ž But they are somehow dismissed because of what people believe criminals to be. In our culture today, there is a tendency to justify mens actions and mitigate or downplay womens actions in general.Ž When 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people at his former Parkland, Fla., high school in February, Schildkraut said, it was Oh, this poor kid wasnt loved enough, his mother died, he was an orphan. There were all these justi“cations of why he did it. The fact is there is no justi“cation.Ž The closest to a note or manifesto that Aghdam left to explain her motivations was the angry videos she produced and uploaded to YouTube. She ranted against the company and claimed that YouTube was censoring her videos and cutting into her nascent celebrity and advertising income. While Aghdam may have shared the kinds of resentments typical of male shooters, she didnt “t the more common pseudo commandoŽ persona they tend to take on „ the ones who show off caches of weapons on their websites and belts of ammunition slung around their shoulders. Theyre angry and they plot against people who they believe havent given them their due. And in this big display of power, they go out in this perceived blaze of glory to show the world their worth and how powerful they are,Ž said Amy Barnhorst, a professor and vice chair of community psychiatry at he University of California, Davis. Its the narcissist, entitled guy in all that commando gear.Ž Aghdam wasnt that. While witnesses said she called out something like come and get me,Ž from the outdoor patio before killing herself, she carried only a single handgun. And she didnt overly concern Mountain View police, who found her sleeping in a parking lot the night before the shootings. From her license plate they learned that her family had “led a missing persons report a few days earlier. When they noti“ed the family they had found her, the family said they expressed their concern in a follow-up call to police that she had a grudge against YouTube. But police said the family never mentioned anything about her potential for violence. By the next morning she was practicing shooting at a nearby range and by 12:45 p.m. was “ring her 9 mm Smith & Wesson into a crowd of panicked employees. I dont necessarily fault them for it,Ž Barnhorst said of the Mountain View police. Young males are at the highest risk of perpetrating violence, and middle-aged women are just not up there on the list.ŽYouTube shooter wasnt a scorned lover, but many thought soBy JULIA PRODIS SULEKTHE MERCURY NEWS SC resorts looks for people who threw carrots at alligatorFRIPP ISLAND, S.C. (AP) „ Of“cials at a South Carolina resort are looking for the people who harassed an alligator by throwing carr ots at him, calling the action a new level of stupid.Ž The Island Packet in Hilton Head reports the Fripp Island Resort Activity Center posted about the harassment Friday on its Facebook page. Fripp Island naturalist Jessica Miller says the people were lucky because the alligator didnt respond and later slid back into the water The Facebook post says Fripp Island has a description of the people who threw carrots. The “ne is $200 per carrot thrown. Violators could also face up to 30 days in jail for feeding alligators if convicted, according to South Carolina state law. Wildlife experts say that most attacks occur when humans feed, poke or swim near alligators.Naval academy holds viewing of flag captured in War of 1812ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) „ The U.S. Naval Academy Museum has held a public viewing of a large British ”ag that was captured during the War of 1812. The British Royal Standard displayed Saturday is 35-by-25 feet. It is decorated with lions and a crown. The event marked the “rst time since the 1880s that the ”ag was available to be viewed in its entirety. It has been in an exhibit case in the academys Mahan Hall, where only part of it was viewable. The ”ag ”ew over present-day Toronto, Canada, and was captured by U.S. forces.

The Fayetteville Observer reports one of the four wanted in the January 2017 death of 27-year-old Calvin Blackshire Jr. turned himself in. Warrants have been issued for the others, including one who is an inmate at a prison in Elizabeth City. They face charges including “rst-degree murder and conspiracy. Blackshire was found in a motel parking lot with a gunshot wound. As he lay dying, an onlooker livestreamed Blackshires last moments. Authorities said at the time that the person who recorded and posted the video didnt break a law. Blackshires mother, Pamela, says she plans to put ”owers on her sons grave to mark the arrests.Ohio State revokes Bill Cosbys honorary degree amid retrialCOLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) „ Ohio State University has revoked an honorary degree awarded to Bill Cosby when he spoke at commencement in 2001. University trustees on Friday approved rescinding the degree for the 80-year-old comedian, whose retrial in a sexual assault case begins Monday with opening statements in suburban Philadelphia. An Ohio State spokesman says Cosby has, by his own admission, violated the universitys principles and values. This is the “rst time Ohio State has revoked an honorary degree. It adds to the list of schools that have revoked honorary degrees for the comedian in the past few years. Cosbys retrial involves a woman who says he drugged and assaulted her in 2004. Cosby says the encounter was consensual. His “rst trial ended in a hung jury. NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFS

Today in history On April 8, 1974 Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves hit his 715th career home run in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, breaking Babe Ruths record. On this date In 1913 the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, providing for popular election of U.S. senators (as opposed to appointment by state legislatures), was ratified. President Woodrow Wilson became the first chief executive since John Adams to address Congress in person as he asked lawmakers to enact tariff reform. In 1935 President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Emergency Relief Appropriations Act, which provided money for programs such as the Works Progress Administration. In 1946 the League of Nations assembled in Geneva for its final session. In 1952 President Harry S. Truman seized the American steel industry to avert a nationwide strike. In 1961 a suspected bomb exploded aboard the passenger liner MV Dara in the Persian Gulf, causing it to sink; 238 of the 819 people aboard were killed. In 1988 TV evangelist Jimmy Swaggart resigned from the Assemblies of God after he was defrocked for rejecting an order from the churchs national leaders to stop preaching for a year amid reports he had consorted with a prostitute. In 1994 Kurt Cobain, singer and guitarist for the grunge band Nirvana, was found dead in Seattle from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound; he was 27. In 2003 kidnapper-rapist John Jamelske, who had imprisoned five women and girls, one after another, as sex slaves inside a makeshift dungeon in his DeWitt, New York, home, was arrested. (Jamelske, who pleaded guilty to five counts of first-degree kidnapping, is serving an 18 years-to-life sentence in a maximum security prison.) Todays birthdays Comedian Shecky Greene is 92.

(AP) „ When University of Floridas president said on April Fools Day that people cited for parking violations on campus over the past year could get amnesty by donating food, many thought it was a prank. But on Friday, nearly 2,000 people learned it wasnt. UF President W. Kent Fuchs said on Twitter that nearly 2,000 citations had been exchanged for 9,455 food donations. The food „ peanut butter, canned peaches and other canned items „ will fill the shelves of the schools Field and Fork Pantry.ODD NEWS UF allows parking violators to pay tickets by food donationsaid it sent three helicopters to the scene. The tragedy brought to mind an accident in 1986, when the Swift Current Broncos team bus slid off an icy highway and crashed in late December, killing four players. The Humboldt Broncos are a close-knit team from the small city of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, which has a population of about 6,000. Many gathered at the community center at the hockey arena there after word of the horri“c crash began to circulate. Humboldt Mayor Rob Muench, wearing a green and yellow Broncos team jersey, hugged people Saturday morning as they came to the Elger Petersen Arena in the Saskatchewan town to comfort each other and learn more. Its overwhelming. Its been tough on everybody,Ž Muench said in a phone interview. Were a small community; some of those kids have been on the team for a number of years. A lot grew up in the community and everybody knows each other.Ž The team was on its way to play in Game 5 of a semi-“nal against the Nipawin Hawks. Hockey was what brought us all together and we had two communities that were rivals in the rink. To “nd out that it was their “rst responders that aided our boys just warms your heart,Ž the mayor said as his voice cracked. Multiple crisis workers were assisting relatives and friends. Everybody is just so devastated. These poor young boys,Ž said Penny Lee, the communications manager for the town of Humboldt. The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League is a junior A hockey league under Hockey Canada, which is part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League. Its open to North American-born players between the ages of 16 and 20. Team President Kevin Garinger said parents from across western Canada were struggling to cope with the tragedy and were rushing to the scene. Our whole community is in shock, we ar e grieving and we will continue to grieve throughout this ordeal as we try to work toward supporting each other,Ž he said. Michelle Straschnitzki, who lives in Airdrie, Alberta, said her 18-year old son Ryan was transported to a hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We talked to him, but he said he couldnt feel his lower extremities so I dont know whats going on,Ž she said. I am freaking out. I am so sad for all of the teammates and I am losing my mind.Ž Garinger said he still didnt know the fate of one of the players living in his home. We just need to try to support each other as we deal with this incredible loss to our community, to our province, to our hockey world.Ž Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, said he knows players on the team. This is I would think one of the darkest days in the history of Saskatchewan, especially because hockey is so ingrained in how we grow up here,Ž he said.HOCKEYFROM PAGE 1 650 CKOM/980 CJME VIA APThis image provided by 650 CKOM/980 CJME shows emergency crews responding to the scene where a bus carrying a junior hockey team to a playo game was struck by a semi Friday, north of Tisdale, Saskatchewan, Canada. a large-scale police operation was underway. Police also said they found a suspicious object in the van that they were examining to see if it was dangerous. They told German news agency dpa that was the reason authorities cordoned off such a large area. The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper said the suspects apartment was being searched Saturday night for possible explosives. The Muenster University Hospital put out an urgent call for citizens to donate blood „ and so many people rushed to help that long lines of donors formed. Jan Schoessler, who was among those in line, said dozens of people were waiting shortly after doors opened at 7 p.m. The university cancelled the call after only an hour and thanked everyone on Twitter for your overwhelming support.Ž Muenster, a major university city, has about 300,000 residents and an attractive medieval city center that was rebuilt after World War II. TV footage showed a narrow street sealed off Saturday with red-and-white police tape. Dozens of ambulances were near the cordoned-off area and helicopters were ”ying overhead. The Kiepenkerl is not only one of the citys bestknown traditional pubs, but also the emblem of the city, depicting a traveling salesman with a long pipe in his mouth and a big backpack on his back. Ugur Hur was working at a nearby cafe in downtown Muenster when the crash took place. I heard a loud bang, screaming. And the police arrived and everyone was sent out,Ž he said. A lot of people were running away screaming.Ž Lino Baldi, who owns an Italian restaurant near the scene of the crash, told Sky TG24 that the city center had been packed with people out enjoying a Saturday market and summer-like temperatures, which had risen to 77 degrees Fahrenheit from just 54 degrees a day earlier. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was deeply shocked by the terrible events in Muenster.Ž Everything conceivable is being done to investigate the crime and to support the victims and their relatives,Ž Merkel said in a statement. My thanks go to all the responders at the scene.ŽCROWDFROM PAGE 1 DPA VIA APPolice vans parked in downtown Muenster, Germany, Saturday. the way they need to be. But were learning that; were making the changes on the ”y,Ž said Jeff Behler, a regional Census Bureau director who is overseeing the test. Were getting some very critical information about changes that we need to make. And we have time to do that.Ž In the test, which began March 16, 280,000 homes in Providence County are receiving snail-mail letters that direct residents to a survey website or toll-free phone number. There, they can complete the survey, which includes questions including about age, race and ethnicity. People may also call to get a paper version of the census sent to them, but census of“cials hope most will do it online because it is less expensive. A response is legally required. Those who dont respond on their own will get a personal visit, with door-knocking scheduled through July, Behler said. Census workers who visit homes will use a new smartphone app, instead of paper forms, to enter information they collect in person. The test survey does not include any question on citizenship, having begun several days before the Trump administrations announcement that it was adding that question, although many people received the letters telling them to take their census around the time the announcement was made. Entities that use census data worry about including a question on the census without testing it “rst. Adding a question at this late stage of the Census process does not allow time for adequate testing to incorporate new questions, particularly if the testing reveals substantial problems,Ž the American Statistical Association wrote in a January letter to the federal government. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said he added the citizenship question at the request of the Justice Department to provide a more accurate tally of the number of voting-eligible residents in each neighborhood. Many Democratic of“cials and advocacy groups fear the question will scare people away from participating because they view the Trump administration as hostile to immigrants, diminishing the surveys overall accuracy. Many Republican of“cials have downplayed such concerns, instead echoing the Trump administrations assertion that there is no empirical evidence pointing to a steep participation decline. The Rhode Island test would have to be repeated „ the second time with a citizenship question at the end „ to gauge whether there is a decrease in participation, but there are no plans to do that. Even aside from the citizenship question, critics say they worry residents will ignore the test requests because they dont know what they are or because they fear how the government will use the information. And they worry a test with a lot of problems will ripple into the nationwide census two years from now.CENSUSFROM PAGE 1 foreign media. He was not af“liated with Hamas or any other militant group. The latest casualties were bound to draw new criticism from rights groups that have branded Israels open-“re orders on the border as unlawful, after Israels defense minister warned that those approaching the fence were risking their lives. The U.N. human rights of“ce said Friday that it has indications that Israeli forces used excessive forceŽ against protesters last week, when 15 Palestinians were killed or later died of wounds sustained near the border. An Israeli military spokesman defended the rules of engagement. If they are actively attacking the fence, if they are throwing a molotov cocktail that is within striking distance of Israeli tr oops or similar activities, then those persons, those rioters, become, may become, a target,Ž said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus. Fridays large crowds suggested that Hamas, the Islamic militant group that has ruled Gaza since a 2007 takeover, might be able to keep the momentum going in the next few weeks. Hamas has called for a series of protests until May 15, the anniversary of Israels founding when Palestinians commemorate their mass uprooting during the 1948 war over Israels creation. Israel has alleged that Hamas is using the mass marches as a cover for attacking the border fence, and has vowed to prevent a breach at all costs.PROTESTFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOSPalestinian protesters burn an American ag during a protest at the Gaza Strips border with Israel, Friday.

So when the people behind the new IMAX original “lm PandasŽ asked The Good PlaceŽ star if she would consider narrating the documentary, it was a no-brainer. Im not secretive about the fact that Im an animal lover, or an IMAX lover to be totally honest with you,Ž Bell said. I think they produce some of the best content out there and I take my kids to the science center every time theres a new IMAX movie. I just think the patience with which they produce particularly their animal documentaries is kind of astounding.Ž Pandas,Ž from David Douglas and Drew Fellman (Born to be WildŽ and Island of Lemurs: MadagascarŽ), takes audiences to the Chengdu Research Base For Giant Panda Breeding in China where scientists are working toward a goal of releasing captive-born pandas into the wild, where only about 2000 remaining pandas live. The “lm, out Friday, focuses in on one, Qian Qian (pronounced Chen Chen), from cub stage to her supervised release in the wild and the humans trying to make that happen. Hou Rong, the Director of Research at Panda Base since 1994, has raised over 200 baby pandas during her tenure and hopes that one day their work will help pandas thrive outside of captivity. In an inspiring display of cross cultural solidarity, she travels to New Hampshire to observe how a man named Ben Kilham has for 20 years been successfully raising orphaned black bear cubs for eventual release in the wild. At Kilhams suggestion, Panda Base hires American conservation biologist Jake Owens, who Douglas calls the Indiana Jones of biologistsŽ to help supervise Qian Qians transition from city panda to countr y panda. Bell, who got involved later in the process, didnt get to meet the pandas but hopes that one day she will. But that didnt stop her from peppering the scientists like Owens with questions, like how much do they weigh (150 poundsŽ), how much do they feel like they weigh (about 300 poundsŽ) and what do they smell like (sweet grass and milkŽ). An avid watcher of nature documentaries, Bell said that she and her young daughters Lincoln and Delta particularly love David Attenborough and the Planet EarthŽ series. The girls saw an early cut of PandasŽ and loved itŽ which makes Bell all the more excited for additional kids and families to experience PandasŽ too. Its inspiring the next crop of biologists and conservationists,Ž she said. She thinks the “lm will connect beyond animal die-hards too. It makes you feel good,Ž Bell said. Its inspiring, its beautiful, its adorable, its educational and personally I think currently the world could use more things that feel good, you know?ŽKristen Bell narrates cuddly IMAX documentary PandasBy LINDSEY BAHRAP FILM WRITER DREW FELLMAN/WARNER BROS. PICTURES VIA APThis image released by Warner Bros. Pictures shows giant pandas in a scene from the IMAX documentary Pandas.Ž Ingraham due back at Fox after cooling-off period from tweetNEW YORK (AP) „ Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham is expected back at work Monday following backlash by advertisers upset over her tweet mocking a Parkland, Florida, school shooting survivor. Several companies say theyll no longer advertise with Ingraham, who was on a one-week vacation that served as a cooling-off period. Ingraham picked up a strong statement of support from her boss and backing from an unexpected source in liberal talk show host Bill Maher late Friday. Ingraham has apologized for a tweet in which she said 17-year-old high school student David Hogg whined about being rejected by some colleges. Ingrahams tweet became a symbol of a debate over how minors active in national gun safety talks should be treated by political opponents. Hogg has said its time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.ŽHannity vows to attack Kimmel until ABC comic apologizesNEW YORK (AP) „ Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity is vowing to continue his attacks on ABC late-night comic Jimmy Kimmel until Kimmel apologizes for a segment in which he joked about the accent of “rst lady Melania Trump, who was born in Slovenia. The dispute between the television personalities is unusually vitriolic, with Hannity calling Kimmel a sick, twisted, creepy, perverted weirdoŽ during his Fox show on Friday. Kimmel returned “re on Twitter, often in off-color fashion. He says its sad that anyone who is slobbering overŽ President Donald Trump would call him a pervert. When Trump was the Republican presidential nominee he was heard on tape bragging about fame enabling him to grope women, and he later apologized. Hannity ran several clips of Kimmel routines he said exposed the comics creepyŽ past. ENTERTAINMENT NEWS BRIEFS

The Sun /Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 Name That CompanyI was founded in 1946, and my founders granddaughter is currently my CEO. In 1974 I debuted the first money market fund against which investors could write checks. I began offering IRAs in 1975, a year after they were created. Today, based in Boston, Im a global financial giant, employing more than 40,000 people and with more than $6 trillion of assets under administration. I serve more than 26 million individual investors (and their 25 million brokerage accounts) and more than 22,000 businesses. I offer investment advice, but you cant invest in me as Im a privately held company. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. (the sum you originally loaned, the bonds par valueŽ). Most corporate bonds have a par value of $1,000, while government bonds can run much higher. Sometimes a company will callŽ its bond, paying back the principal early. All bonds specify whether and how soon they can be called. Federal government bonds are never called. Investors dont necessarily buy a bond when its first issued and then hold it to maturity, for several years or decades. Bonds are often traded among investors, with their prices rising and falling in reaction to prevailing interest rates. When rates fall, people tend to bid up bond prices. After all, if banks are offering 2 percent, a 5 percent bond will be appealing. When interest rates rise, newer bonds with higher interest rates will be more appealing than older bonds with lower rates. Bonds can make sense for your portfolio, but if youre looking for investment income, consider dividend-paying stocks as well. To see many stocks we have recommended, some of which offer dividends, try our Motley Fool Stock AdvisorŽ newsletter via fool.com/services .The Motley Fool TakeA Biotech Bargain?Not long ago, biotech company Celgene (Nasdaq: CELG) was a darling in the investment community. Thats no longer the case. Over the past six months, Celgene stock has plunged some 40 percent. What went wrong? A oncepromising Crohns disease drug flopped in a late-stage clinical study, Celgenes fast-growing psoriasis drug Otezla is facing competition and slowing growth, and the company lowered its financial outlook for 2020. The market seems to think Celgene is in horrible shape, but the biotech still claims a compelling growth story, with adjusted earnings per share expected to increase by more than 19 percent annually on average over the next few years. Celgenes current lineup, featuring blood cancer drugs Revlimid and Pomalyst, continues to perform well. Those two drugs contributed nearly $10 billion to the companys roughly $13 billion in sales last year. Celgene also markets the blockbuster cancer drug Abraxane. Thanks to label expansions, growing demand and price increases, the companys sales grew 16 percent year over year in 2017. Meanwhile, many expect Celgenes multiple sclerosis drug ozanimod to be approved and reach blockbuster status. With a forward-looking price-toearnings (P/E) ratio recently in the single digits, Celgenes stock seems a bargain for long-term investors. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Celgene.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentA Guy Who Guessed WrongWhen I got back into the stock market in 2009 after inheriting some money, I made the mistake of listening to this guy who guessed wrong a lot. As a result, I lost money with some bad investments. Now I listen to him less, while listening more to The Motley Fool and a few others I trust. Oh, the guy who guessed wrong a lot over the last eight years or so? Me. „ R.L., Cincinnati The Fool Responds: Were glad that you trust us, but dont sell yourself short so quickly. A big problem in the scenario you described can be boiled down to one word you used: guessed. The less guessing you employ in investing, the better your results are likely to be. Sure, no one knows exactly what a given stock or the entire market is going to do in the next day or year, but the more you know, the fewer surprises youll likely encounter. If you study a company youre interested in, learning about how it makes its money, what its competitive advantages are, how financially healthy it is and what its growth potential is, you can make an educated estimate of its value and its attractiveness as an investment. Remember, too, that youll never be perfect in your investment decisions. Weve made our share of regrettable calls, and the worlds best investors have erred, too. Stocks or Car Loan?QShould I use some extra funds to pay off my car loan or invest in the stock market? „ K.M., Fort Wayne, IndianaAIf you have any high-interest debt, such as from credit cards, pay that off first. Otherwise, compare your car debt with your alternatives.Say your car loan interest rate is 5 percent. If you invest in the stock market, the average annual gain in that over many decades is roughly 10 percent, but thats just an average and far from certain. The stock market can be volatile, especially over short periods. So consider your risk tolerance and decide whether youd rather save a definite 5 percent or hope for a 10 percent gain. It can be worth paying a little in interest while aiming to earn more through stock appreciation. Just make sure youre investing for the long haul.***QWhats a leveraged buyout? „ L.B., Hendersonville, North CarolinaASometimes referred to as an LBO, a leveraged buyout is when a company is bought out by another entity (or entities), using a lot of debt. Private equity investors are typically involved, borrowing lots of money without using much of their own, and often using the acquirees assets as collateral.The acquired company is generally taken private, no longer trading publicly on the stock market. Its likely to go public again later, after some changes have been made (such as layoffs, the selling of assets or dividend increases or decreases). While some LBOs are executed by members of management, others are hostile, executed by outsiders and not welcomed by their targets. Many LBOs dont end well for the company or its shareholders (there are substantial interest payments due, after all), though the acquirers often do well.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to foolnews@fool.com.Fools SchoolBonds, ExplainedStocks have outperformed bonds over most 20-year and 30-year periods, and between 1802 and 2017, stocks averaged annual postinflation gains of 6.8 percent, while bonds averaged just 3.5 percent. Despite that, you might include some bonds in your portfolio for diversification, especially if youre in or near retirement. First, though, be sure you understand what bonds are. Bonds are essentially long-term loans. If a company or government issues bonds, its borrowing cash and promising to pay it back at a certain rate of interest. Bonds sold by the U.S. governments Treasury Department are called Treasuries. State and local governments issue municipal bonds, while businesses issue corporate bonds. Companies on shaky ground attract buyers with high-interest-rate junkŽ bonds. If you buy a $1,000 bond with a coupon rateŽ of 5 percent, youll receive $50 per year in interest payments.

The oldest sister is the only one who has children „ three girls under the age of 12. Im a high school teacher who works about 60 hours a week during the school year between teaching, grading, attending meetings, completing paperwork, tutoring before and after school, and planning lessons. My second-oldest sister wants to plan an elaborate road trip this summer that involves renting an RV and driving cross-country with our nieces to visit Disneyland. She feels that since I have the summer o, I should be more than happy to go on this trek. I love my students and nieces, but by the time summer rolls around, the last thing I want to do is spend a week or more in a camper with kids. I told her I have some summer training to go to, which is true, hoping she would drop the subject. She hasnt. What can I tell them? „ SWEATING IT OUT IN THE SOUTH DEAR SWEATING IT OUT: Forgive me if this is blasphemy, but Disneyland isnt everyones cup of tea. Thats why its time to tell your sisters the truth. You deserve a child-free summer break if you want one, and that fact should not be regarded as a personal insult to anyone. DEAR ABBY: I have worked with a woman for a little more than a year. Her daughter is having a baby. I have never met her daughter, but hear only negative stories about her and her boyfriend, who both live with this coworker. Today in the mail I received an invitation to this daughters baby shower. I was told by another co-worker that we all (seven oce people) are invited, although none of us have ever met her. I am surprised the woman I work with would do this. Does it seem strange to you, and should I feel guilty because I have no desire to go? Because of the invite, I feel I shouldŽ give a small gift, but Im sort of mied about it. If you were me, how would you handle this? „ CONFUSED CO-WORKER DEAR CONFUSED: The daughter and her boyfriend are living with your co-worker because they dont have enough money to live on their own. I dont know the reason for that, and neither do you. Its fair to assume that they will need things for their baby. I agree that by sending you an invitation to the shower, she has put you on the spot, but I can understand her doing it. If I were you, in the interest of solidarity as well as charity, I would send a small baby gift „ or consider a group gift with your other co-workers. Because I had heard nothing positive about the mother-tobe, I would send with it my regrets for being unable to attend. DEAR ABBY: After I retired, I wrote a book. I sent a copy to old friends at no charge. Upon receipt, they gave lukewarm thanks and criticized me for not personalizing it by handwriting a few words to them. How should I deal with these people who often tend to criticize? „ PUZZLED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR PUZZLED: Some people feel that an inscription in a book makes it a more personal gift. That said, dealŽ with it by accepting the criticism graciously and oer to autograph your book for them if they will return it to you.

Shipping and handling are included in the price.Dear Readers: If you have a ton of leftovers after a big gathering, make customized TV dinners instead of throwing them out. You wont waste all that good food. Heres how to do it: „ Buy heavy, plastic microwaveable plates with compartments. Look for them on sale and buy in bulk to have on hand. „ Scoop leftover portions to ll each section of the plates, and cover the plate with microwave-safe plastic wrap before freezing. „ When you need a superquick meal, just pull these out and pop them into the microwave. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: We just moved into a new house, and there is colored grout around the bathroom. It is dirty. How do I clean it? „ Hillary from Connecticut Dear Hillary: Try this: Make a paste by mixing 3/4 of baking soda with 1/4 cup of warm water. Grab a damp, clean toothbrush, scrub the solution onto the grout, allow it to remain on the surface for a couple of minutes and then rinse well. Dont use any cleaners on grout that contain chlorine bleach because they remove the color. Finally, apply a sealer to the grout to prevent new stains. Clean it regularly to stop a dirt buildup. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Sometimes you buy avocados at the supermarket that have not softened enough to eat them. Heres how to hasten the process so you can make your favorite guacamole dip! Put the avocados into a brown paper bag and add a banana peel or an apple to it. Pierce the bag and close. Allow it to sit for a day or two and check to see if the avocados have softened. When you cut the avocado, squeeze a bit of lemon juice on it to stop it from turning brown. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I was just shopping for bleach for the rst time, and I noticed that there are several types. I dont know which one to buy. Can you help me out? „ Tiffany from California Dear Tiany: As we all know, bleach can be a key part of cleaning our clothing. When you decide to use bleach, there are two types to understand „ chlorine and oxygen. Both will clean and whiten clothes. Chlorine beach is the stronger and more eective on white and colorfast washable garments, but not on silks or wools. Oxygen bleach is not as stron g and is color-safe. Before using either type, read the fabric-care labels to be sure that its all right to use for that kind of clothing. Test for colorfastness on a small hidden area of the fabric. Read the labels for the right amounts and for proper usage. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: We are going to be away for several weeks, and we feel its too big of a responsibility to ask a relative or friend to help take care of our dogs for such a long time. I really need a professional sitter to do the job. How can I nd a qualied person? „ Melanie from Florida Dear Melanie: Heres what to do: Contact a bonded pet-sitting service, which will be licensed, insured and can provide references. The service will charge you by the day or by the visit. Your dogs normal daily routine should be maintained. To nd a good service, ask your vet, a local pet shop or go online. „ HeloiseRV road trip to Disneyland with preteens no vacation for teacherDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Syrian government forces resumed their offensive on rebel-held Douma on Friday afternoon after a 10-day truce collapsed over disagreement regarding evacuation of opposition “ghters. Violence resumed days after hundreds of opposition “ghters and their relatives left Douma toward rebel-held areas in northern Syria. A reporter for Lebanons Al-Manar TV embedded with Syrian troops near Douma said government forces advanced toward Douma from the towns of Misraba and Madiara that were recently captured by troops. Al-Manar TV is run by Lebanons Hezbollah group that has sent thousands of “ghters to Syria to back government forces. The government-controlled Syrian Central Military Media said government forces captured several farms Saturday on the southern and western edges of the city that is home to tens of thousands of people. SCMM said the area controlled by the Army of Islam in and around Douma is 7.3 square miles. The group said its “ghters repelled all government attacks that began Friday, adding that 17 Syrian soldiers were killed. By Saturday evening, state media was reported that troops are approaching Army of Islam forti“cations on the edge of the town adding that street battles could begin soon. It said warplanes bombarded the groups headquarters and command and control center. State TV said Army of Islam “ghters pelted several neighborhoods in Damascus with mortar shells killing six civilians and wounding more than 30. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bombardment of Douma killed eight people and wounded 48, including 15 children. Some opposition activists in Douma posted photographs of people wearing gas masks saying that government forces are shelling the town with poison gas. State media denied the reports saying such farces about chemical weaponsŽ were triggered by the troops quick push toward Douma. On Friday, opposition activists said 40 people were killed in Douma while state media said four were killed in government-held Damascus. Government forces launched a crushing offensive in February and March on eastern Ghouta capturing dozens of towns and villages forcing thousands of opposition “ghters to surrender and evacuate the area toward Syrias north. A deal was reached last month to evacuate Douma but activists and state media reported that the Army of Islam group demanded amendments to the deal. The Observatory said the Russian response to the Army of Islam with a list of demands including handing over heavy weapons within three days that should be followed by handing over light weapons and in return government forces will withdraw from the outskirts of Douma within a week. The Observatory also said that the Russians promised the rebels that once they hand over their weapons, airstrikes would stop. It added that “ghters who hand over their weapons can join a local police force that will be established in Douma mostly consisting of Army of Islam members who will be given Russians weapons to “ght members of the Islamic State group and al-Qaida-linked “ghters. Army of Islam Military spokesman Hamza Bayraqdar told The Associated Press by text message, the Russians are making humiliating demands that mean surrender and handing over the area. This is something that we categorically reject.Ž Russias military said the Army of Islam has forced out leaders who were taking part in negotiations to withdraw from Douma and that their “ghters have resumed attacks. Maj. Gen. Yuri Yevtushenko, head of the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, said that as a result of sharp opposition among the odious militants and those who were prepared to participate in the negotiations process, the former leaders of the group (known as) Abu Humam, Abu Omar and Abu Ali were physically removed.Ž He said the information came from a close aide of Abu Humam. In northern Syria, the Turkish military said on its Twitter account that it has established the ninth observation post in the rebel-held province of Idlib as part of the de-escalation agreement with Russia and Iran. Turkeys of“cial Anadolu news agency said the military convoy reached the town of Morek in Idlib province. Eastern Ghouta was also part of the same de-escalation plan signed last year in the Kazakh capital Astana. Turkeys presidential spokesman said that the Turkish military presence in Idlib would serve as a guaranteeŽ against attacks to ensure that it does not meet the same fate as eastern Ghouta. Ibrahim Kalin said, The Russians and the Iranians have a full understanding of this,Ž adding that the Syrian regime also understands that Turkish soldiers are not to be attacked in those areas.Ž Separately, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been threatening to expand the offensive against Syrian Kurdish militants in northern Syria eastward to the town of Tel Rifat. A spokesman for his of“ce, however, said an operation against Tel Rifat might not be needed. He said Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Turkish counterpart that the main Kurdish militia Peoples Protection Units, or YPG, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization, is no longer present there. Elsewhere in Syria, a bomb exploded in the Aleppo town of al-Bab, which is controlled by Turkey-backed opposition “ghters, killing nine people and wounding 15, according to the activist media collective Aleppo Media Center. The Observatory report that eight people were killed in the blast that occurred near the towns Grand Mosque.Violence claims more lives in Syrian capital and suburbsBy BASSEM MROUEASSOCIATED PRESS SYRIAN CIVIL DEFENSE WHITE HELMETS VIA APThis photo released by the Syrian Civil Defense White Helmets, which has been authenticated based on its contents and other AP reporting, shows smoke rising after Syrian government airstrikes hit in the town of Douma, in eastern Ghouta region east of Damascus, Syria, Saturday. CARACAS, Venezuela „ An in”uential U.S. senator pressed for fair elections and the release of a jailed American during his private meeting with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, the senator said Saturday before departing the turbulent country. Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, told The Associated Press that he urged Maduro to uphold democratic rights ahead of Venezuelas upcoming presidential election, but doubts any changes will be forthcoming His four-day trip made at Venezuelas invitation included a visit with Joshua Holt, who has been jailed in Caracas for nearly two years on what the U.S. considers trumped-up weapons charges. Durbin, the author of a recent Senate resolution condemning Maduros use of food as a tool of political coercion,Ž said he took time to walk through parts Caracas, seeing the downtrodden faces of residents struggling to feed themselves. He also talked with doctors not able to get enough medicine to treat patients. I was heartbroken by what I saw and heard, particularly regarding the collapse of the countrys ability to feed and medically care for its people and children,Ž he said in an interview Saturday at the conclusion of his trip. The government has yet to comment on what was discussed during Durbins visit, or that of another lawmaker, Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, who met with Maduro earlier in the week in a privately-funded trip that wasnt organized by the State Department. But the rare visits came as the Trump administration weighs an embargo on Venezuelas oil shipments on top of sanctions already imposed on dozens of top of“cials, including Maduro, for decimating the countrys economy, spurring a humanitarian crisis and straying away from democratic practices. Oil-rich Venezuela is in the throes of a “ve-year economic and political crisis causing dire shortages of food and medicine, while drawing condemnation from the U.S., as well as many Latin American and European countries. This isnt a matter of Yankee imperialism,Ž said Durbin, the No. 2 Senate democrat. He was not happy with my conclusion on that.Ž Maduros government invited the senator to Venezuela in an effort to initiate dialogue between the two countries that havent exchange ambassadors since 2010. Durbin said Maduro made no demands, which he took as a sign that the leaders request was genuine. Durbin said Maduro greeted him warmly but doubted that the leader will delay or make any changes to boost con“dence that the May 20 presidential election will be free and fair, such as allowing banned opposition parties to participate. Democracies dont exile and imprison their political opponents, Ž said Durbin. This is not a democracy when it comes to the political process.Ž Durbin also pressed Maduro to hand over Holt, a 25-year-old Utah man who travelled to Venezuela in June 2016 to marry a fellow Mormon he met online practicing his Spanish. The couple was arrested during a police raid on the housing complex where she had lived. Venezuelan authorities alleged Holt was stockpiling weapons of war.Ž Asked to release Holt to his care, Maduro told Durbin that he would consider it. He made no promises,Ž the senator said. Durbin visited Holt in the Caracas jail where he and his wife are being held alongside some of the governments “ercest opponents, describing him as distraught and saddenedŽ by the drawnout ordeal but in otherwise good condition. They have been held and are being held for some political purpose either to be part of some trade in the future over some issue,Ž Durbin said. The senator next returns to Washington to share what he saw and learned with his colleagues in Congress. He said that ratcheting up increasing sanctions against Venezuela is broadly discussed. I hope we dont have to turn to further sanctions,Ž Durbin said. That is really in the hands of the Maduro regime.ŽUS senator meets with Venezuelan president, jailed Utah manBy SCOTT SMITHASSOCIATED PRESS Ship hits historic mansion on Istanbuls Bosporus StraitISTANBUL (AP) „ A cargo ship has crashed into a historic mansion on Istanbuls Bosporus strait, severely damaging the building. Turkeys of“cial Anadolu news agency said the Maltese-”agged cargo ship had a malfunction Saturday that disabled its rudder and caused it to lose control in the busy waterway. Videos showed the large ship sailing straight toward the Asian shores of Istanbul, hitting the red seaside mansion of Hekimbasi Salih Efendi. No one was injured. Anadolu said the 738foot ship was carrying barley from Russia to Saudi Arabia. The mansion once belonged to a doctor who served in the Ottoman palace and dates back to the 18th century. The Bosporus is a key waterway connecting the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara and then the Aegean Sea.Egypt cyclist pedals to Russia to support team in World CupCAIRO (AP) „ An Egyptian cyclist has set off on Saturday from the heart of downtown Cairo heading to Moscow to support Egypts national soccer team in the World Cup. Mohammed Nufal, 24, embarked on the long-haul journey from the famed Tahrir Square and is planning to traverse seven countries across three continents including Jordan, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. Nufal said he will only take a ”ight from Jordan to Bulgaria to bypass war-torn Syria. The languages are among the biggest challenges,Ž Nufal told The Associated Press. I will deal with that using translation apps and sign language.Ž He expects the weather to be bearable during the trek. According to his of“cial Facebook page, Nufal said his trip would take 65 days covering a distance of some 3,3160 miles. He expects to take nine days to travel 800 kilometers in Egypt alone, where his last stop will be in south Sinais Nuweiba, before heading to Jordan. Nufal had previously biked for 70 days to Gabon, passing through Chad, Sudan and Cameroon. Egypt quali“ed for this years World Cup for the “rst time since 1990.Members of migrant caravan protest in MexicoMEXICO CITY (AP) „ Central American immigrants traveling through Mexico in a caravan that drew the attention of U.S. President Donald Trump are protesting in Mexico City. Mexicos capital is the “nal stop for the migrant caravan that left from the Mexico-Guatemala border late last month to draw attention to immigrant and refugee policies. Standing beside Mexicos Angel of Independence monument, Caravan organizer Irineo Mujica said S aturday that remaining members of the caravan would march to the nearby U.S. embassy and seek meetings with representatives of the United Nations and Organization of American States. Migrants traveling in the caravan have begun to disperse in recent days as they received temporary papers from the Mexican government. Some plan to remain in Mexico while others will travel to the U.S. border and request asylum.Ailing Algerian leaders backers urge him to seek 5th termALGIERS, Algeria (AP) „ Algerias governing party is urging President Abdelaziz Boute”ika to seek a “fth term even though the 81-year-old has been debilitated by a stroke for years. The head of the FLN party, Djamel Ould Abbas, formally asked Boute”ika to run in the May 2019 election in a speech Saturday to party lawmakers. Ould Abbas added that the last word remains with him, of course.Ž Boute”ika is barely seen in public even now and its not clear whether he is still really in charge of Africas largest country. Ould Abbas praised Boute”ikas record as a leader since winning the presidency in 1999 and bringing a cautious peace to a North African country riven by years of insurgency. No other presidential candidates have emerged because they are waiting to see whether Boute”ika will run. WORLD NEWS BRIEFS

For his short afternoons work, in what ended up a 10-3 Rays loss, Faria had arguably the least efficient such outing in franchise history … throwing 73 pitches to get five outs. No Rays or even Devil Rays pitcher … not Victor Zambrano, not Dewon Brazelton, not Tanyon Sturtze … had ever thrown as many pitches without getting through two innings.

A bus crash in his home province of Saskatchewan left 14 dead and 15 injured, three critically. A junior hockey team, the Humboldt Broncos, was headed to a playoff game Friday afternoon when a truck collided with its bus. Among the dead were the teams coach and captain. Its got to rip the heart out of your chest,Ž Babcock, who grew up in Saskatoon, said at Air Canada Centre. We pray for those families and think about them.

Giroux finished with 34 goals and 102 points. He extended his career highs in points and goals while becoming the sixth player in franchise history to reach 100 points in a season. Michael Raffl and Ivan Provorov also scored for the Flyers, who needed at least one point to make the playoffs and eliminate the Florida Panthers from postseason contention. The Flyers (42-2614) are returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2016, and will be vying for their third Stanley Cup. The club won back-to-back titles in 1973-74 and 1974-75. The Flyers captain scored his first two goals during Philadelphias dominating second period in which it outscored the Rangers 3-0 thanks in part to an 18-5 shots advantage. Giroux put the Flyers ahead 2-0 with 7:36 left in the second when his shot from the left circle got through Henrik Lundqvists legs after a screen by Nolan Patrick. Raffl made it a threegoal lead when he took the rebound of Radko Gudas shot from the point with a turnaround shot that got past Lundqvists right pad with 2:07 left in the period. And Philadelphia set a club record for the quickest two goals when Giroux fired past Lundqvists glove side with a wrist shot from the slot just 6 seconds after Raffls tally to make it 4-0. Raffl set up the play by intercepting a Rangers pass at the blue line and dropping a pass to Giroux. The fans unleashed a thunderous M-V-P!Ž M-V-P!Ž chant for Giroux when he was shown on the video board. And Giroux had the sold-out crowd of 20,028 in a frenzy when he scored his third on a breakaway with 9:49 left in the third period. Hundreds of hats littered the ice, causing a seven-minute delay, and Giroux smiled on the video board and waved to the crowd, which gave him a standing ovation. The Rangers (3439-9), who are out of the postseason for the first time since 200910, ended their regular season with their ninth loss in the last 11. Brian Elliott made 17 saves in his second game in goal after returning in Thursdays 4-3 win over Carolina following a 25-game absence because of core muscle surgery on Feb. 13. Elliott was shaky in the win over the Hurricanes, allowing a pair of soft goals while making 19 saves. He didnt have much action against the Rangers. Provorov got the Flyers on the board 6 minutes into the game when he scored on a 6-on-5 advantage as a result of a delayed penalty. Sean Couturier sent the puck toward the crease from the left of the goal, and the puck caromed off Provorovs right shoulder and past Lundqvist. The goal stood after an officials review.Girouxs hat trick helps Flyers clinch playo berth NBA: Nuggets 134, Clippers 115Associated PressLOS ANGELES „ Will Barton scored 31 points and Nikola Jokic added 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists and the Denver Nuggets earned their fifth consecutive victory with a 134-115 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. The Nuggets pulled into a tie with the Minnesota Timberwolves for eighth place in the Western Conference with two games to play. Both teams are 45-35. The Nuggets finish up the regular season at home against Portland on Monday night before playing the Timberwolves in Minneapolis on Wednesday night. Minnesota, which holds the tiebreaker over the Nuggets, hosts Memphis on Monday night. The Clippers were eliminated from the playoff race. The Clippers suffered their fourth loss in five games, falling to 42-38, 2 games out of eighth place with two to play. The elimination ends a run of six consecutive postseason appearances for the Clippers, who previously missed the playoffs in 2010-11. Jamal Murray added 19 points, Paul Millsap had 15 and Wilson Chander 13 for the Nuggets, who shot 62.4 percent from the field. Lou Williams scored 24 points to lead the Clippers. DeAndre Jordan added 16 points and 17 rebounds, with Tyrone Wallace added 18 points and Tobias Harris had 16 for Los Angeles. Leading 81-71, Barton hit a 3-pointer after the Nuggets grabbed a pair of offensive rebounds to ignite a 12-3 run that finished with Harris making the score 93-74 with 3:09 to pay. The victory was Denvers first this season over the Clippers, who won the first two meetings, 109104 at Staples Center on Jan. 17, and 122-120 in Denver on Feb. 27.Nuggets eliminate Clippers with routBy STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressBeing healthy in the play offs is taking priority over seeding, with a few teams sitting their top players Saturday in the final game of the regular season. MVP front-runner Taylor Hall will sit out the New Jersey Devils regular-season finale after the team clinched a playoff spot but can still move up the standings. New Jersey is resting Hall, fellow forwards Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac, and defenseman Sami Vatanen in Game 82 at Washington, and it isnt alone in taking precautions. The Columbus Blue Jackets wont play stars Artemi Panarin, Seth Jones, Zach Werenski and two-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky in their final regular-season game at Nashville. Columbus coach John Tortorella told reporters he was absolutely notŽ trying to avoid facing the two-time defending Stanley Cup-champion Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. New Jersey coach John Hynes similarly answered that giving Hall a break is more important after a grueling push to clinch the franchises first playoff berth since 2012. Were not looking to get in the playoffs and just be a Cinderella story,Ž Hynes said before his Devils faced the Metropolitan Divisionchampion Capitals on Saturday night. Were looking to get in the playoffs and win, and (Hall is) a big part of that.Ž Hall, who is one goal short of reaching 40 for the first time in his career, said hes cool with the decision to rest instead of taking a chance on the eve of the playoffs. Its a good time to get some rest and recuperate a little bit,Ž said Hall, who has 93 points in 76 games and is expected to be a finalist for the Hart Trophy. Weve played a lot of hockey lately, and a lot of the stuff in the standings is out of our hands other than our game.Ž No Eastern Conference first-round matchups have been determined going into the final weekend of the season.

The Sun / Sunday, April 8, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3SOCCER: Manchester UnitedWashington DT Vita Vea, Florida State S Derwin James, Louisville CB Jaire Alexander and LSU CB Donte Jackson were among the players making predraft visits to the Bucs this week. Aside from re-signing 35-year-old veteran Brent Grimes to a one-year contract, the Bucs havent really addressed their cornerback situation. Ryan Smith, who moved back from safety in his second p ro season, started 10 games and had 62 tackles, but gave up a lot of yards and had no interceptions. Vernon Hargreaves seems relegated to playing slot corner, which gets him on the field about 66 percent of the time when teams go to three receivers. We said at the end of the year, the No. 1 thing we needed to do was get Brent Grimes back and we did that,Ž said Bucs coach Dirk Koetter. And then, also, Vernon Hargreaves finished the year on (injured reserve). When you have those two g u y s comin g back plus the experience that Ryan Smiths got and Justin Evans coming back at safety „ all that said, now that the defensive line has had so many additions, I would think secondary is logical to think that would be an area of target in the draft. And again, I think its a strong group in the secondary in this years draft class. I know Ive watched a bunch of guys and theres a lot of guys I like.Ž The Bucs currently do not have a thirdround pick, having dealt it to the Giants for pass-rusher Jason Pierre-Paul. So if they go another direction at No. 7 overall, the second-round choice could well be a cornerback.CLOUDY FUTURE? There has been radio silence since an Instagram video surfaced of Hargreaves smoking an unknown substance. Neither the Bucs nor Hargreaves have responded. Hargreaves did not have a good 2017. He lost his starting job and then finished the season on injured reserve. The Bucs seem content to let him line u p as the slot cornerback, even though typically you dont use a first-round pick on someone who is not going to play every down. The dangerous thing for Hargreaves„ and by proxy the Bucs„ is that the NFL could use the video as probable cause to place Hargreaves into Phase 1 of the leagues substance abuse program, which would make him subject to random drug tests. A violation of his personal program would result in a suspension. It can be a slippery slope and an inconvenience for p la y ers. Former Bucs quarterback Chris Simms recently revealed that he was in the drug program and lost four game checks while playing for Tampa Bay. The drug program (is) miserable,Ž Simms said. You can be tested all the time. They can come to your house. How many times was I on the way to see a movie with my wife and then they call and I was like, Damn, honey ƒ we gotta go back. Because you have a time „ once they call you, the time limit starts.Ž Right now, the Bucs and Hargreaves are just ho p in g the smoke clears.BUCSFrom Page 1 prix from pole position only to finish second behind Vettel. Although it is very early, Mercedes is not looking the unshakeable, supremely reliable force it was when winning the drivers and constructors double in the past four seasons. It is going to be one of the hardest races for us in some time. Weve been trying to get ahead of the Ferraris, but it has been tough,Ž Hamilton said. The goal is damage limitation.Ž In a further boost for Ferrari, the aging Kimi Raikkonen has looked sharp all weekend, leading the second and third practice. The 38-year-old Finn looked set to secure his first pole since last years Monaco GP, but Vettel beat his time right at the end of qualifying to clinch his 51st pole. It was quite intense,Ž Vettel said. The car has been excellent.Ž Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas was third. These guys with the red car (Ferrari) they are just a bit too quick. We cant be happy with this,Ž Bottas said. Hamilton has to take a five-place grid penalty for changing a gearbox on Friday. Drivers must use gearboxes for six consecutive races before being allowed a new one. Hamiltons problem was caused by a hydraulic leak sustained in Australia. Vettel, last years championship runnerup, won in Melbourne for his 48th career win and 100th podium. Hamilton ended up second because his team made an error of judgment during Vettels pitstop. Hamilton will also be looking over his shoulder in Sundays race, with Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo starting from fifth. Ricciardos teammate, Max Verstappen, however, was only 15th after clumsily crashing in Q1. Heading into Turn 2, he slid sideways off and thudded into the crash barriers, the left front wheel of his car mangled. It has been a poor start to the season from him. He spun his car after pushing too hard early on in Melbourne and finished sixth. At the start of qualifying, Romain Grosjean (Haas), Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin (both Williams), Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc (both Sauber) were eliminated from Q1. New Zealand driver Brendon Hartley complained about damage to his left front wing and soon found out why: He hit a bird. Hed done enough to make it into Q2, however. Hartley, Verstappen, and Force Indias Sergio Perez were then eliminated from Q2, along with Fernando Alonso and his McLaren teammate Stoffel Vandoorne. It was a blow to McLaren, after both drivers finished the Australian GP in the top 10, with Alonso in fifth place. Our qualifying performance was worse than we expected,Ž Alonso said. We cannot extract the maximum over one lap, and we need to find the reasons why.Ž McLaren entered the season with high hopes after switching to Renault engines, following three troublesome seasons with Honda. But Toro Rosso chose to work with Honda and both of their drivers did better in qualifying than McLaren. Earlier, Hamilton expressed his annoyance over team radio when pitting after P3, saying spectators got too close to his car. Who were those people on the left-hand side?Ž the British driver asked. I was coming in at some speed, I could have killed them.Ž It was a bad day for Hamilton, vying with Vettel for a fifth world title to move level with Argentine great Juan Manuel Fangio.BAHRAINFrom Page 1driver, when it crashed at about 5 p.m. on Highway 35, police said. Among the dead are Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan, team captain Logan Schatz and radio announcer Tyler Bieber. Authorities earlier said three were in critical condition but later provided an update to say that 15 have now died. Canadian police said the truck driver was initially detained but has since been released and provided with mental health assistance. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki said its too early to state a cause for the crash. In a tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump said he called Trudeau to offer his condolences to the families of victims. Darren Opp, president of the Nipawin Hawks, who the Broncos were set to play against, said a semi T-boned the players bus „ an account police confirmed. Its a h orrible accident, my God,Ž Opp said. Hassan Masri, an emergency room doctor at Saskatoons Royal University Hospital who has done work in war-torn Syria, said the crash reminded him of an airstrike. Photographs of the wreckage showed the twisted trailer with most of its wheels in the air and the bus on its side and its back portion destroyed. The force of the crash sent both vehicles into the ditch at the northwest corner of the intersection. Aerial footage showed the bus on its side, its roof peeled back and its front end destroyed. The trailer of the truck lay nearby in a shattered mess, with bags of its peat moss cargo scattered all around. The tractor part of the truck was intact, lying on its passenger side. The tractor-trailer would have had to yield to a stop sign before crossing over the highway that the hockey bus was travelling on. There is a stand of trees on the southeast corner of the intersection, limiting visibility of the approach on both roads. Police said a lot of issues have to be investigated, including weather conditions at the time and any mechanical issues with the vehicles. The tragedy brought to mind an accident in 1986, when the Swift Current Broncos team bus slid off an icy highway and crashed in late December, killing four players.CRASHFrom Page 1 Associated PressMANCHESTER, England „ Manchester City fans were in tears, consoling each other with hugs in the stands as Manchester United reveled in its neighbors misery. Tears were supposed to flow on Saturday. Tears of joy. For Citys third English Premier League trophy in six years. The setup couldnt be sweeter for City. United, the 20-time English champion in whose shadow City has lived for so long, was in Citys Etihad Stadium fortress for the title clincher and derby. What could possibly go wrong? Nothing in the first half. By halftime, City looked to have wrapped up the league title in record time with a 2-0 lead, shredding United apart with goals from captain Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan in a sixminute span. United was being embarrassed. Then they swapped ends and it all went wrong. United scored three times without reply and won 3-2. The home fans reacted as if the clock had been wound back two decades when City was relegated in successive seasons. Typical City,Ž as the faithful have long bemoaned with selfdeprecating cries. But this is a very different City „ for a decade fueled by the wealth of oil-rich Abu Dhabi „ though still capable of messing things up. When the weeping fans glance at the standings they will still see City 13 points clear of United at the summit with six games remaining. It is inevitable Pep Guardiola will still get his hands on the silverware that has spent so long at Old Trafford, without City having to wait until the last day of the season like in 2012 and 2014. But this was a golden opportunity blown. This is tough mentally,Ž Guardiola said. We are sad for ourselves for our fans.Ž United counterpart Jose Mourinho was more irritated than sad when he addressed his players in the dressing room at the break. He said that we didnt want to be the clowns standing there watching them get their title,Ž United defender Chris Smalling recalled. For Paul Pogba, after an insipid first-half display, the ramifications of a defeat weighed heavily on his mind. If (City) won they are champions,Ž the United midfielder said. For all the (United) fans, it would be like death. To lose against City and to see them celebrate, I couldnt let that happen.Ž Particularly after a mischievous intervention on Friday from Guardiola, who claimed he was offered the chance to sign the Frenchman in the January transfer window.Collapse denies Man City title partyAP PHOTOMercedes driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain gestures as he answers to reporters after the qualifying session at the Formula One Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir, Bahrain, Saturday.

Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, April 8, 2018 / The SunGOLF: The MastersAssociated PressAUGUSTA „ Tiger Woods was trying to figure out how to get to the 17th green from closer to the 15th fairway when the massive gallery anticipating his shot heard a huge roar behind them that caused them to look over their shoulders. Rickie Fowler was responsible for making all that noise with an eagle on the second hole. The third round of the Masters was just getting started on Saturday. The player so many fans wanted to see was about done. Needing something special to even have hope, Woods had to settle for ordinary. A few sloppy bogeys, two of them on par 5s. A few birdies. It added to an even-par 72, his best score of the week. Im not hitting it close enough. Im not taking advantage of the par 5s and consequently a good round is even par,Ž Woods said. It was disappointing, sure, but it also was surprising. Woods spent so much of the Florida swing of the PGA Tour piecing his game back together, and his iron game was particularly sharp. And then at the Masters, it wasnt. Woods said he knows what the problem is, he just cant fix it. And now its too late for him to do anything about it. So instead of Woods capping off this comeback with a fifth green jacket, he had to settle for playing the Masters for the first time in three years. Regardless of the score, no one wanted to miss him. Fans packed into Amen Corner and celebrated with Woods when he hit the green after two days of going into Raes Creek. This one settled 8 feet away from the left pin. I just couldnt do it three days in a row,Ž Woods said. Missed the putt. But hey, thats a lot easier to play the hole from the green than it is dropping.Ž They stood on their toes „ some of them hopped in place „ to try to see over all the heads lining the 13th fairway to check if his shot cleared the tributary in front of the green. It narrowly did, except that Woods then chipped it too close to the edge and off the back of the green. It wasnt great golf. It was simply golf by one of the greatest players. Woods was assured of moving back into the top 100 in the world, notable only because he was at No. 1,199 just over four months ago when he returned from yet another long layoff following multiple back surgeries. Ive had some success in this comeback, and Im getting there,Ž Woods said. I wish this week would have been a little bit better. Hopefully, tomorrow I can shoot something, get me to even par or even in the red. I think that will be a good goal tomorrow and hopefully I can get it done.Ž For now, all that can be said about this comeback is that hes at least back. Woods played the third round with Ian Poulter „ they had not played together in a tournament since the Bridgestone Invitational in 2011. Poulter said as they walked up the 18th fairway, he said to Woods, Its good to see you healthy again.Ž It wasnt always like that. It would have felt different 15 years ago than it did today,Ž Poulter said. I would have been more nervous. It would have been more intimidating. He would have been hard, with his game face on.Ž He described Woods now as having a softer personality, and Poulter isnt alone in sensing that. Woods is 1 under for the week on the four par 5s. He went just over the back of the 15th green with a wedge, chipped only up to the putting surface and missed his par putt. It was an example of how loose his game has been all week. Its been scratchy this week,Ž he said. I just havent gotten it done.

Another day in the 60s means Reed is one round away from all four rounds under 70, something thats never been done in the Masters. He entered this years tournament without a score under 70 in 12 Masters rounds. After a bogey on 3, Reed bounced back with a birdie on 5 on a 19-foot putt. A birdie on 8 sparked a three-hole stretch of birdies that included a 25-foot putt on 9. A bogey on 12 was backed by an eagle on 13 when he drained a 14-foot putt, and he did the same on 15, this time from off the green with a chip from the front right side. The conditions, which produced softened greens compared to the first two days, caused Reed to have to adjust, especially on his putts. He had three more putts compared to Friday but hit two more greens and remained consistent throughout his game. The impact of Reeds round rippled down the leaderboard, as low rounds took on a sense of desperation to keep up. That included McIlroy, who shot 65 to finish 11-under and join Reed in the final pairing. McIlroy went bogey free with five birdies and an eagle. A combination of clutch iron play and long putts, capped by a dramatic 17-foot birdie putt on 18 that drew a fist pump, kept McIlroy just behind Reed and well within striking distance. Going for the career Grand Slam, the 28-year-old McIlroy nearly holed out on the par-3 sixth before holing a 32-yard pitch for eagle on 8. He drained long birdie putts on 3, 4 and 15 before doing the same on 18 to end his round with momentum. I have the chance to win another major, so Im excited,Ž McIlroy said. You cant ask for much more. Ive been waiting for this chance, to be honest.Ž Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm matched McIlroy for low round of the day at 65, yet Fowler is in third at 9-under, five shots back of Reed, and Rahm is in fourth at 8-under, six strokes back. Fowler also posted a bogey-free round with five birdies and an eagle, the highlight coming on the par-5 second hole when he drained a 25-footer for eagle. The roll continued on 5 by sinking a 42-foot birdie putt. We're definitely in the golf tournament,Ž Fowler said. I'm going to need to play the front nine well tomorrow and put myself really in the mix for when this golf tournament starts, which is the final nine holes.Ž Rahm followed the formula of McIlroy and Fowler with five birdies and an eagle to put himself on the map. He opened with birdies on 1 and 2 before holing out a 32-pitch on 8 for eagle. He added a rare birdie on 10, sank a putt from the fringe on 16 for birdie and made a 14-footer for birdie on 17. Henrik Stenson stayed steady with another 70 to sit in fifth alone at 7-under. Tommy Fleetwood nearly matched the magic of McIlroy, Fowler and Rahm by shooting 66 to reach a tie for sixth at 6-under. Hes joined by Bubba Watson and Marc Leishman at eight strokes back of Reed. Two notable names, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, sit just inside the top 10 at 5-under. Thomas shot 70 and Spieth posted 71 to stay on the leaderboard. Tiger Woods, playing in his first Masters since 2015, produced his best round of the week so far with 72.

Associated PressFORT WORTH, Texas „ Three Xfinity Series races, three different drivers and three consecutive wins for the No. 22 car. Ryan Blaney became the third different Cup Series regular in a row to win an Xfinity race in the Team Penske Ford. He was the pole sitter and led 132 of 200 laps on an unseasonably chilly Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. You never want to be the person who breaks the streak of wins, especially when a cars been so fast,Ž Blaney said. There was that reminder in the back of my head to try to get this one.Ž Especially from the drivers that won the previous two before the Xfinity Series had a two-week break. Joey Logano won in the No. 22 car at California, a week after Brad Keselowski went to Victory Lane in Phoenix. Brad and Joey, they definitely reminded me that this week,Ž Blaney said. Joe Gibbs Racing is the only other team in the series to win three straight races with the same car and different drivers. Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin won consecutive races in their teams No. 20 Toyota in 2008. That car actually made it four victories in a row when Stewart won again. Christopher Bell finished 2.327 seconds behind Blaney in second place. Bell led twice for 10 laps, but isnt sure if a pit penalty that put him at the tail end on a restart after a caution had a big impact on his outcome. I dont know. Theres been a lot of people that have run second to the 22 here recently, so they obviously have something figured out,Ž Bell said. It doesnt matter whos driving that thing, it goes really fast.Ž It was the seventh career Xfinity victory for Blaney, who qualified fourth for Sundays Cup Series race at the 1-mile Texas track.

Some other things to know about the Xfinity Series race in Texas:COLD CARSWhen the green flag waved, it was 34 degrees and cloudy. Texas Motor Speedway officials said it was the coldest start for a NASCAR race at the track. The previous low was 47 degrees for an Xfinity race on April 14, 2007.

Tyra Banks was the rst black girl to make the cover of the Victorias Secret catalog.WILLYSANJUAN/ INVISION/APTyra Banks brought her fun and fabulous voice to her latest book, Perfect Is Boring. Co-written by her mother, Carolyn London, the memoir mixes in lessons for mothers and daughters as the dialogueing duo trace Banks journey from a tot to a top model and beyond. Here are ve things we learned about Banks from the book:She had a nose job Banks, 44, says she tweakedŽ her nose when she was younger. I had a Pinocchio nose: It just kept growing. Though instead of growing long, it continued to grow left and right in the area between my eyes. And that spot felt itchy all the time,Ž she wrote. She says she didnt have an issue with her nose (besides the itching), but decided to seek out a doctor after a makeup artist made a comment about it when she started modeling. He told me he could stop the itching and sculpt my nose with his philosophy „ to preserve ethnic features,Ž she wrote, after explaining she turned down a previous doctor who wanted to give her a straight-up-too-thin-too-pointtoo-WTFŽ nose. Did he keep his physical promise and did the itching stop? You nose it.ŽShe was an advocate for body positivity before the industry embraced diversityBanks says that when she started to gain weight during her early modeling career, her high-fashion clients were not pleased, and she started booking fewer and fewer runway jobs. But after considering crash diets and unhealthy workout regimes to lose the weight (that, for the record, she was comfortable with), her mom convinced her to accept her body and go in a dierent direction: commercial clients. I did not want Tyra to fall into the trap of thinking she had to live up to some silly idea of the perfect body,Ž London wrote. Tyra was almost a supermodel, and if she was too fat, what message did that send to the rest of us normal-(expletive) women?Ž The only problem? Major companies and magazines in the U.S. werent hiring black women to be cover models at the time. Victorias Secret wasnt going to hire me, the agent said, because the girl next door was blond, baby, not black,Ž Banks wrote. But after two go-sees with the lingerie brand, she beat the odds and became the rst black girl to cover their catalog. Later, she broke more barriers by being the rst black woman to cover Sports Illustrated Her mom threw her a period partyYep, thats right. London didnt want her daughter to go through the same traumatic period experience she did when she was a young woman (her mother gave her no warning, so when her period arrived, she thought she was dying!), so she decided to celebrate Tyras rst cycle. Literally. She threw the 15-year-old a period party complete with her friends, party games, cake and feminine product-lled goodie bags. I appreciate that she never wanted me to be ashamed of anything, or to think that But it wasnt all a loss. During a lunch with her (third) music manager not long after, an even better idea of how Banks could connect with people came to them: a talk show. And so, The Tyra Banks Show was born. Tyra wasnt meant to be the next Katy Perry or J.Lo,Ž London wrote. But the girl could talk and had a gift for helping people see the inner and outer beauty they couldnt see in themselves.ŽHer mom gave her the best sex advice You read that right. Periods werent the only thing London was open with her daughter about „ she also gave Banks some straight-up sex talks that included the so-called eight words that men say to pressure women into having sex. Getting pregnant as a teenager was not something I wanted to happen to Tyra,Ž London explained, who had her rst child as a teen. I didnt want her to get a disease ... I didnt want some man kissing her neck and lyin to her and saying he loved her, when he really just wanted to feel her lovin!Ž So when Bankss boyfriend whispered those very same words to her, she could hardly believe it. I screamed, pushed him o me, and jumped up o the couch. She said you would say that! I yelled. Shes not crazy! You said it just like she said you would!Ž she recounted.

Rival Carnival has unveiled a sizable newcomer, too. Miami-based Carnivals 26th ship, the 3,954-passenger Carnival Horizon, entered service Monday in Barcelona with a 13-day inaugural sailing to the Mediterranean. Constructed at a shipyard in Italy, Horizon is a sister to Carnival Vista, which debuted in 2016 and is the cruise lines biggest vessel ever. Both ships are 133,500 tons. Like Vista, Horizon boasts an 800foot-long sky ride around its top deck, andinside, an IMAX Theater. Another notable featureis a 455-foot-long water tube attraction that will be part of a Dr. Seuss-themed water park. Like other Carnival ships, Horizon has a range of other deck-top fun zones, eateries, bars and entertainment. Still, while relatively large as cruise ships go, Horizon is signicantly smaller than Royal Caribbeans new ship, the 228,081-ton Symphony of the Seas. Horizon will make four Mediterranean sailings out of Barcelona before crossing the Atlantic to New York for a series of cruises to Bermuda and the Caribbean. In the fall, itll move to Miami for sailings to the Caribbean.

And very smart. As part of a pilot program that debuted Wednesday, LAX is showcasing technology that uses overhead lights to signal if a bathroom stall is occupied or not. Weve all been there. Youre in the restroom and someone shakes the door, peeks through the crack, or looks under the stall partition to see your feet,Ž said Allen Klevens, CEO and founder of Tooshlights. Bathroom lines get long because people dont know which stalls are available.Ž To solve the problem, Tooshlights uses smart latchesŽ that send signals to indicator lights in the restroom ceiling. When a stall door is closed and latched, the light over that stall turns red; when the latch is opened, the light turns green. Alerting travelers to empty restroom stalls will be helpful, of course, but these restrooms are smarter than that. For the pilot project, LAX and Tooshlights have also partnered with Infax Inc. to gather information about restroom usage, including when the restrooms are the busiest. The real-time data we will be receiving through our new smart restroom technology will help us respond quicker when issues occur and gain baseline data for daily and weekly restroom usage,Ž said Michael Christensen, deputy executive director of the facilities and maintenance group at LAWA. Starting this week, LAX travelers will nd the red light/green light system in one mens and one womens restroom just past security in American Airlines Terminal 4.

4 SUNDAY,APRIL8,2018 USA TODAY LIFE Silver Dollar City in Branson, Mo., is pitching its new attraction as breaking a number of world records. It rightfully claims that the $26M Time Traveler is the fastest, steepest, and tallest complete-circuit spinning roller coaster. It also boasts that it is the only one to include three inversions as well as two launches. All of the assertions are true, and the combination of features and elements helps make Time Traveler a unique, wild, and wonderful ride. The problem? When folks hear spinning roller coaster,Ž they might think of a madly gyrating ride vehicle „ and the potential motion sickness it could cause. While Time Travelers cars do rotate, they are not like a washing machines spin cycle. Thats because Silver Dollar City and Mack Rides, the German company that manufactured the coaster, have gured out a clever way to control the rotation speed. Magnets.Too much spin? Give me a brakeEach coaster car is mounted on a round n that allows it to freely spin. But each of the cars also has a small onboard magnet that can be adjusted to brake the turning. Moving the magnets closer to the ns increases the magnetic force and slows the spinning. I rode Time Traveler several times in March. Silver Dollar City had set the cars magnetic elds at 25% of their capacity. At that setting, I dont think any of the cars I was in ever made more than three compete revolutions over the course of the entire two-minute ride. While variables such as passenger load can have an impact, I never observed any gyrating cars, madly or otherwise. Its not about spinning a lot,Ž says Franz Friedl, the head of installation for Mack Rides. The idea is really that the spinning gives you a dierent experience every time you ride.Ž Indeed, even when I was in the same seat on the same car, I found myself in dierent positions at the same points during successive rides. The cars might rotate a few degrees in one direction, but then reverse direction after navigating one of the coasters elements.Youll be positively attractedAt a height of 100 feet and a top speed of 50 mph, Time Traveler is thrilling, but its not in the same league as some of the more extreme non-spinning coasters. Brad Thomas, the parks president, calls it a thrill ride that appeals to families.Ž Each of Time Travelers cars seats four, with two facing forward and two facing backward. As the train leaves the station, the cars rotate about a half spin so that the rear-facing passengers end up facing forward and vice versa. And how does the ride accomplish that? Magnets. The round ns on the cars pass through a magnet mounted on the track that causes them to spin. Immediately after leaving the station the train plummets 100 feet at 90 degrees or straight down. To partially quell the speed trim brakes in the track powered by magnets slow the trains rst drop. Then the ride takes o for a spinning romp through the Ozarks holler. Along the way, time travelers ip head over heels as they encounter a 95-foottall loop, a zero-G rollŽand a dive loop. About halfway through the ride, the train momentarily comes to a stop until linear synchronous motors launch it from 0 to 47 mph in 3 seconds. And what, you might ask, are linear synchronous motors? It is a fancy name for magnetic motorsembedded in the track that attract and repel magnets attached to the train to rev it up to speed. A second pass-through a magnetic launch near the end of the ride boosts the speed from 30 to 45 mph in 3.5 seconds. That gives the train enough oomph to back into the loading station. Through it all, the coaster is wonderfully smooth. The launches are exhilarating. There are a couple of brief freeoating moments, especially in the trains back car. A tempest in a teacupWhen Silver Dollar City decided it was going to buy Mack Rides unique take on a spinning coaster, park ocials went to Germany to try a prototype car that the manufacturer installed on an existing coaster. It was not a pleasant experience,Ž says Thomas about the intense whirling and spiraling he and his team endured. It was like a (rapidly spinning) teacup ride on a coaster. It would not have worked here.Ž In response, Macks engineers developed the breakthrough magnetic control system to temper the rotation speed. While they werent initially thrilled about the uninhibited spinning, the Silver Dollar City folks were taken by the car that Mack designed for the coaster. Thomas says they thought it looked like a time contraption. From that spark came the Time Traveler theme. The storyline follows a clockmaker who develops a time machine. Visitors must pass through the inventors workshop, adorned with timepieces, cogs, gears, and time-travel artifacts. With their copper, gold, and bronze embellishments, the coasters cars look like something H. G. Wells may have described. The time mechanisms on the cars are set to July 1886, emblematic of Time Traveler, that uses modern-day magnetic technology to transport riders back in time. At least, thats my spin.Time Traveler is worth your time Silver Dollar City is pitching its Time Traveler as breaking world records. It says it is the only attraction to include three inversions.

USA TODAY LIFE SUNDAY,APRIL8,2018 5 BOOKSMichelle McNamara was an obsessive. She also was a damn good writer. That combustive mix has produced Ill Be Gone in the Dark: One Womans Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer (Harper, 328 pp., eeeE ), a dark page-turner about a serial rapist and killer with a tragic twist. The Golden State Killers last victim was, in ways, the author herself. McNamara, who was married to comedian and actor Patton Oswalt, diedat age 46 in 2016 as she was writing this book, felled by an arterial blockage exacerbated by medications that helped her battle ailments including insomnia. You wouldnt sleep either if you lived in the haunted world described in Dark From the mid-1970s to the 80s, a man sneaked into homes across California and committed more than 50 rapes and 10 murders. Dubbed by local law enforcement the East Area Rapist „ many of his crimes happened in eastern Sacramento „ he was never caught. McNamara, a TV writer (and dedicated amateur criminologist who started the website True Crime Diaries), spent years tracking the killer, whom she called the Golden State Killer, or GSK. The author befriended equally obsessed cops, cased victims homes to try to determine a pattern and used the Internet to build an army of fellow Nancy D rews. Frustrations abounded. A lack of technology in the 70s perhaps helped the killer get away; an abundance of modern crime-busting tech, foremost DNA testing, cleared the most promising suspects in recent years. And still McNamara pressed on, like a mathematician obsessed with solving a theorem or an archaeologist bent on nding a lost civilization. If there is a criticism about McNamaras otherwise scintillating work, its the books disjointed structure. We rocket back to the past for the crimes and zip to the present for conversations with experts. We race up and down California incessantly. The antidote, h owever, is McNamaras poignant prose. You turn the pages just to see which revealing gem youll be presented with next. Heres McNamara on a killers mind: Hes the maltreated hero in the story. Staring up at him anguish-eyed is a rotating cast of terried faces. His distorted belief system operates around a central, vampiric tenet.Ž McNamara was with Oswalt for 13years, but she lived with GSK. While McNamara had assembled much of the book before her death, it was nished with the help of her lead researcher, Paul Haynes, and investigative journalist Billy Jensen, who gained access to their friends 3,500 computer les on the GSK case. Despite her sleuthing, McNamara did not identify the killer. Her collaborators oer a solemn promise: We will not stop until we get his name.Ž In his afterword, Oswalt „ who has undertaken publicity duties for Dark „ hints the next generation of GSK sleuths may be close to home. He describes the couples now 8-year-old daughter, Alice, opening a Christmas present that contained a digital camera. She was pleased with the gift but something nagged.Later that morning, she asked, out of the blue, Daddy, why do you and Santa Claus have the same handwriting? Michelle Eileen McNamara is gone. But she left behind a little detective. And a mystery.ŽREVIEWOne writers obsession with aserial killerMarco della CavaUSA TODAY Author Michelle McNamara David Mamets dialogue has long had the metronomic power of a tommy gun, which is tting for Chicago, his splendid new tale of mobsters and newspapermen.The playwright and screenwriters rst novel in more than two decades, this 1920s-set murder mystery takes Mamet back to the Prohibition era of his hometown. Chicago (Custom House, 332 pp., eeeg ) is a story of lost love, obsession, revenge and the need for truth shared by old-school gumshoes and reporters alike. The fact that its proudly soaked in hooch, prostitution and gangland crime only makes it that much more satisfying. Al Capones Italian gang runs the South Side of town, Dion OBanion is in charge of the Irish Maa on the North Side, and Chicago Tribune writer Mike Hodge is trying not to tick o either of them.A former World War I airman, Mike drinks heavily and banters with fellow scribe Clement Parlow while fostering a relationship with nice Catholic girl Annie Walsh „ until shes shot dead one day in Mikes apartment, right in front of him, by an unknown assailant. After navigating a downward spiral of alcohol and guilt, Mike goes into detective mode and bumps into another case: of a murdered speakeasy owner, his dead partner, a missing mistress and a tortured maid. Mamet grounds Chicago by lling out the towns wonderfully seedy corners: A madam named Peekaboo is one of Mikes condantes. If youre a fan of the signature Mamet speakŽ of Glengarry Glen Ross theres plenty to love here, especially with scenes set around Mike and Parlows work at the Tribune Man bites dog is too interesting to be news,Ž their editor tells them. And Mike is a talented writer when hes not plastered. His lead for the breaking news of a bullet-ridden speakeasy manager begins with the man dead of a broken heart, it being broken by the several slugs from a .45.Ž Mamets razor-sharp prose is desperately needed in the rst half of Chicago ; the novel may take place in the Windy City, but the pacing isnt exactly brisk. Momentum picks up as Mike starts putting the puzzle pieces together. Mamet digs into the racial politics of the time and probes how the Great War continued to aect men after they returned home. Not to mention the fact that being in the know back then sometimes got you put 6 feet under.Mamet had plenty of gangster bona des after his screenplay for 1987s The Untouchables. In Chicago, he roots a riveting crime drama in a throwback journalistic world, when you could yell for a copy boy to bring you Dixie cups for your illegal liquor. But this novel has a romantic heart, and the emotional stakes enrich the whiskey-drenched whodunit.REVIEWThe gangs are all here in Mamets ChicagoBrian TruittUSA TODAY Author David MametDemocracies dont just die; people kill them. Thats the conclusion of authors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt in their carefully researched and persuasive new book, How Democracies Die (Crown, 320 pp., eeeg ). As tempting as it is for opponents of President Trump „ whom the authors, Harvard University professors, call a serial norm breakerŽ „ to blame him for what ails our democracy, he is just one of many who have changed the traditions of our national political fabric. The process of norm erosion started decades ago „ long before Trump descended an escalator to announce his presidential candidacy,Ž they write. At the root, they say, is racism, particularly racism inspired by passage of the 1965 Civil Rights Act. Couple that with the passage the same year of landmark immigration reform, which empowered non-white Americans and created an animus among white Americans that has triggered a series of moves to counter diversity and preserve white inuence.The authors deftly mine world history for other examples of how politicians have distorted their nations less-robust democracies to enhance their own power. In Venezuela, Hugo Chavez used his support among the countrys lower classes to propel himself into the presidency. He used his advantage to strip away the oppositions ability to ght back and eroded what remained of Venezuelas wobbly democratic traditions. In nearby Peru, former president Alberto Fujimori used many of the same techniques to dominate his nation. By April 1992, he dissolved congress and the constitution. Less than two years after his surprising election, the long-shot outsider had become a tyrant,Ž Levitsky and Ziblatt write. The United States is not Venezuela or Peru. Its judicial system is strong and independent, and enough people in both parties are rmly committed to the rule of law and democratic traditions. The authors show the fragility of even the best democracies and caution politicianswho think they can somehow coopt autocrats without getting burned.If not a jeremiad against the current president, How Democracies Die provides a guide for Americans of all political persuasions for what to avoid.REVIEWEven as freedom rings, danger lies withinRay LockerUSA TODAY Authors Steven Levitsky, left, and Daniel Ziblatt.STEPHANIE MITCHELL
