NORTH PORT „ An analysis of how much the slated North Port aquatic center would make and how it would run will be presented to the North Port City Commissioners on Monday. The meeting will be at 9 a.m. today in Commission Chambers in City Hall, 4960 City Hall Blvd. The presentation will be made by aquatic center consultant ConsilmanHunsaker. It covers a slew of information, including analyzing the demographics in the area, reviewing the other pool entities/water slides in the region, possible operating schedules, personnel needs/expenses, revenue options and pros and cons of a third party operator. The aquatic center has been in the works for decades and in 2017 commissioners ultimately approved a 25-meter stretch pool, three slides, a lazy river and a childrens play area. It is predicted to open in May 2019 and as of February 2018, was slated to cost roughly $12 million. The meeting will be livestreamed and can be viewed at cityofnorthport.legistar.com/ Calendar.aspx. Email: lcoey@sun-herald.com North Port will review pool plans By LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITERWith another hurricane season just around the corner in June, Punta Gorda continues to hammer out the details of seawall replacement for Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles residents. For PGI, the seawall project calls for the replacement of 50,400 linear feet of seawall with an approximate total cost of $30 million. The citys current plans for seawall replacement will cost residents an additional $150 to $200 per year in property taxes. I do know that where we have problems is coordination (of contractors, city staff and residents),Ž Ed Baldwin, a Punta Gorda resident for 27 years, said at a workshop the city held last week for PGI residents. Because it is a massive project ... it is not going to happen overnight. So you just gotta learn to be patient.Ž The city has issued contracts for completion of the repairs. Estimated at two years for completion, the city is currently in the process of securing a “ve-year line of credit to provide the necessary cash No quick fix for seawallsBy DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERSEAWALL | 5WASHINGTON „ A Facebook page hyping a big announcementŽ from Gov. Rick Scott was “lled with encouragement for a challenge against U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, but a stream of anger ran through the comments. Sorry, Governor Scott. You blew it when you signed the anti-gun legislation into law. Will not be voting for you,Ž one person wrote. Another compared him to Democrat Charlie Crist. A third fumed, Shouldnt have gone against Americans with your knee jerk pandering to the gun grabbers.Ž Scotts embrace of Floridas “rst gun restrictions in decades has infuriated the gun lobby and its “ercely loyal lieutenants. Now the NRA, already on the defensive in Washington and across the country, faces a conundrum in a nationally watched election that could decide the balance of power in the Senate: Let Scott slide or punish a governor who achieved the groups A-plus rating? If Scott escapes attacks after weakening gun rights, other Republicans may feel emboldened in a time of soaring public support for solutions to Parkland and other mass shootings. It has always been our practice to hold public of“cials accountable for their actions that impact law-abiding “rearms owners and their Second Amendment rights. Nothing has changed,Ž said Marion Hammer, the NRAs Florida lobbyist who, pre-Parkland, had achieved a legendary reputation for her control over the agenda in Tallahassee. Hammer declined to comment further. She is very much, Youre with us or you die,Ž said Robert Spitzer, an expert on gun politics and chairman of the political science department at SUNY Cortland in New York. But Scotts well positioned. Its certainly Scotts NRA trouble may prove to be an assetBy ALEX LEARY and STEVE BOUSQUETTIMES/HERALD BUREAUNRA | 8 PROVIDEDThe newest pool rendering for the North Port aquatic centerVIEW MEETING ONLINEThe meeting will be livestreamed and can be viewed at www.cityof northport. legistar.com/ Calendar. aspx. SUN PHOTO BY DANIEL SUTPHINPunta Gorda engineer, Mark Gering, updates Punta Gorda Isles residents at a workshop on the progress of seawall replacement in the area.Current replacement plans would increase annual property taxesThe gender pay gap in Florida is closing, but not for good reason. Womens median annual earnings in the state have fallen in the past decade, yet the wage gap has narrowed due to an even sharper decline in mens earnings in the wake of the Great Recession. That is one of the takeaways from a report called The Status of Women in Florida by County: Employment & Earnings,Ž released last week. The states gender pay gap is 12.5 percent, meaning women employed fulltime, year-round earn 87.5 cents for every dollar a man makes. Thats a yearly pay difference of $5,474. The ratio is the worst in Charlotte County (81 cents), among Southwest Florida counties. Lee County Florida is known for its endless sunshine and nearly 700 miles of beaches. Its where people come to relax and unwind, to forget about work and worries. Its also become a place where an emerging number of females operate 1.04 million businesses, according to a recent study commissioned by American Express OPEN. The state ranks second in the increase of women-owned “rms the past 20 years, based on the analysis of U.S. Census and Gross Domestic Product data. Nationally, women enterprises grew by 114 percent from 1997 to 2017, compared to just a 44 percent jump among all ventures. At the same time, Floridas growth in female businesses ballooned 208.3 percent, or a rate nearly “ve times faster than the overall U.S. average. But it hasnt been easy in a business world dominated by males for so long.

As one example, they mention Virginia Trabue, a woman just as in”uential as her husband, Isaac, in the establishment of Punta Gorda, originally named the town of Trabue. People thought she was just his wife,Ž Schaefer said. In reality, Virginia worked alongside Isaac in his businesses as an equal. In the history books about the time period, Schaeffer said womens names are mentioned, but there arent indepth stories about them like there are of the men. Many more women are owning businesses, but theres always blocks along the way,Ž Schaefer said.Men were floored to see herMarjorie Benson, who bought Friendly Floors in Port Charlotte from her parents 23 years ago, knew right away that she was a woman in a guys world. She emphasized that many male business owners were quick to help her, and that she had many male mentors through the years. It was the installers, builders and suppliers who tried to take advantage of me back then,Ž Benson said. I think it was partly that I was a woman, and partly that I was new,Ž she added. The whole ”ooring industry was a mans domain back then. For the “rst two years especially, it was tough. Today, its different, Benson said. There are more women owners and many female sales reps. In fact, all of Friendly Floors sales representatives are female. Im not trying to have an all-female staff,Ž Benson said. Ive hired men in the past, and Id hire a man again if hes the best candidate.Ž Shopping for ”ooring is different today than it was 20 years ago, too, Benson said. Back then, mostly couples came in together to choose their ”ooring. Today, many women come in alone and do the entire purchase themselves. They may take samples home, and presumably get their husbands or signi“cant others opinion, but the often woman has the “nal say. Even when couples do come in now, the woman is usually the decision-maker. And they respond well to the female sales representatives. Benson stuck with the business through good times and bad, learned the intricacies of the products and said shes always among the “rst to have the latest market innovations „ from wine-stain and petproof products, to eco-friendly ”oors made of recycled rubber or plastic „ and the gorgeous woods as well as those that just look like gorgeous woods. A few years ago, Friendly Floors became part of the Abbey Showroom networks to be able to take advantage of an even wider selection for their customers. She said her “rm has been proud to have been voted by Sun readers as the No. 1 ”ooring company in the area for 13 years in a row, which Benson attributes to many things, not the least of which is commitment to customer service. The stores philosophy of doing Whatever It Takes (WIT) to please their customers has been worth the effort, Benson said.A mother of inventionJamie Lovern loved her job as a graphic designer. However, as she put it, Corporate jobs can suck the life out of you.Ž She knew she was burning out, but she didnt want to own her own agency. I fell in love with soy candles, which people hadnt heard of back then,Ž said Lovern, referring to around the turn of the century or so. She started experimenting with making them and, when her son was born two years later, she left her job as a graphic designer to be able to spend more time with her growing family. Her business, Lola Blue Living, was born in 2003 „ Lola for her nickname from the Barry Manilow song, and Blue for our blue planet that she believes in handling with care. The companys soaps, for example, are made without palm oil because she doesnt want to participate in the deforestation necessary for the palm plantations. All Lola Blue products are made without paraben, paraf“n, phthalates, sulfates, gluten or animal products, except for lip balm, which is made with beeswax. Lovern put her design skills to work on packaging and marketing. She knew what she wanted her products to be and the kinds of businesses she wanted offering them. Yet, from the beginning, she felt pushback. Women get pushback when they stand up for themselves,Ž she said, not from all men, but de“nitely from a lot, and also from aggressive women. I get it even today, even after proving that I know what Im doing.Ž Being a petite woman doesnt help, either, she said. In spite of Loverns enthusiasm and passion for her products, people think she doesnt know whats best for them. Or maybe they just think they can push her around. Lovern held her ground from the beginning. Money isnt everything,Ž she declared, and meant it. I knew I didnt want my products in Walgreens. And if Id given in, and put them there, the spas where I wanted to be wouldnt have taken my products.Ž She struggled with selfdoubt, too, Lovern said: When so many people want you to do things their way, you start to think, Do I really know best?Ž Her advice to women wanting to start a business is not to be afraid to stand in your power.Ž Stand up for yourself and what you believe in. Find mentors and get their advice, too. Look for business leaders and ask them for help. Today, Lola Blue has outgrown its space and will soon move into larger digs, still in North Port. They could have moved to Sarasota or Venice awhile back, but she wanted to stay in North Port. Lola Blues line of candles, soaps, scrubs and more is sold all over the country in the spas and environments where Lovern knew they belonged. Shes glad she held out for what she knew to be the best for her company. Winning on a whimKaren Tyree was an interior designer 10 years ago when the building industrys slump left her looking for another avenue of work. Exactly what, though, she didnt know. She had just returned from spending six months in her native England caring for her mother, who then passed away. One Sunday I woke up with the idea to start a resale store and name it after my mother,Ž Tyree said. So, Ivys was started on a whim, really.Ž Tyree had been an Englewood resident for 20 years by then, so she drove around the area looking for possibilities. Thats how she came to open the store in East Englewood, next to Stevens Florist. Five years later, she moved the shop to the historic downtown and became Ivys on Dearborn. When she became aware that O My Gauzes owner, Elizabeth Bryant, was retiring, Tyree applied for the O My Gauze territory and was accepted. Thats how Tyree took Ivys from resale to retail. Soon, manufacturer Fresh Produce approached her about taking on their clothing line, too. Thanks to (Hurricane) Irma, we decided to close for three weeks and renovate, and then we reopened,Ž Tyree explained. Its been very good.Ž So good, in fact, that shes partnered with Arlene Bechtold in a second store, Sisters, which is due to open this month. Sisters will have more of a European ”air, carrying items you wont “nd anywhere else,Ž Tyree said. Meanwhile, shes also expanding the shoes, accessories and clothing Ivys carries. Shes proud to sell jewelry made by local artists „ nothing from China, she said with a chuckle. Her winning formula, Tyree said, is the stores focus on local customers and on delivering the kind of customer service that takes time and personal attention. Ivys has six part-time stylists who help women shop for what suits their style and ”atters them. If it isnt a good look for them, we say so, and suggest other items that will work better,Ž Tyree said. Our local customers know that, and they come here for that help. You wont “nd that at department stores, and certainly not online.ŽOn the lookout for wildlife and wetlandsDorothea Zysko didnt feel intimidated as a female opening her business, The Ecology Group, in Punta Gorda in 2004. The consulting company works with local governments, engineering “rms, property owners and others to evaluate land for environmental concerns. If any are found „ such as gopher tortoise burrows or scrub jay nests „ Zysko helps them decide what action to take. Id been an ecologist in the area for many years, with a reputation in the industry, working with engineers, surveyors, builders and developers, so they didnt question my opening this business,Ž Zysko explained. The comments she did get, such as one from a builder who said, Man, you can handle a shovel really well!Ž she took as compliments. Zysko had worked for several engineering “rms in Sarasota County and enjoyed the work, but she felt it was time to go out on her own. She and her husband, Ed, had previously owned two ”ower shops, and she missed the freedom of having her own business. Starting out, the challenge was “nding clients for something that doesnt typically have customers walk in off the street. Fortunately, Ed worked buying land for a builder at the time and mentioned that his wife had a business that could check the property before it was purchased. From that point on, The Ecology Group grew. Later, Zysko submitted a proposal to Charlotte County and was awarded the annual contract as project manager for their parks. The contract was renewed for “ve years. Today, The Ecology Group also does a lot of work for individuals, usually when theyre considering buying property and want to know if they will be restricted in building on it. If theres a gopher tortoise nest on the property, you cant build over the nest,Ž Zysko explained. The owners need to decide whether to move the nest off-site, or to another part of their property.Ž Plus, The Ecology Group also performs property searches for scrub jays, a protected Florida bird losing its habitats to development. In addition, the company monitors bald eagles during their nesting period so that loud noises (such as those caused by building or clearing land) wont disturb them. The Ecology Group has been in the process of changing its name to Southwest Florida Ecology Services as current employee Jennifer Krajcir becomes a partner.

The Sun /Monday, April 16, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 5 (87.2 cents) and Collier County (85.9 cents) are similar to the state and better than Sarasota County (84.9). It is 83.3 cents in Glades and 97.2 cents in Hendry. In DeSoto, women make more: $1.10 for every dollar to a man. The “ndings are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, using 2012-2016 American Community Survey “ve-year estimates. Florida scored a D+ grade for womens employment and earnings, worse than the Cthe state earned when The Status of Women in the StatesŽ was published in 2004. Although more women are employed in managerial and professional occupations, which generally have higher wages and employment bene“ts, a smaller share of women are in the labor force. Median annual earnings for women in Florida are $35,000, placing the state 38th in the nation, compared with $40,000 for men. The state ranks 36th nationally on an index that measures states on womens earnings, the gender pay gap, womens labor force participation and womens representation in professional and managerial occupations. In Florida and all states, women working full-time, year-round earn less than men. Its closing for all the wrong reasons,Ž said Brenda Tate, CEO of the Southwest Florida Womens Foundation and co-chair of the Florida Womens Funding Alliance. The study was commissioned by the alliance, an af“nity group of the Florida Philanthropic Network, which envisions a state where women and girls thrive. The Institute for Womens Policy Research, which conducted the research, is a tax-exempt organization that shares its “ndings to address the needs of women, promote public conversation and shape policy. Mens earnings are falling even more rapidly than womens,Ž said Julie Anderson, senior research associate with the institute. This is not the path we prefer to take to close the wage gap.Ž The single biggest issue with the pay gap is what Anderson called occupational segregation.Ž Certain jobs are dominated by men, while others, which tend to pay less, are dominated by women. The report urges lawmakers to enforce legislation regarding fair labor standards and to strengthen protections against retaliation for those who discuss their pay to determine whether they are being underpaid relative to comparable employees. It wants employers to be required to increase transparency about disparities in their hiring, compensation and promotion practices. In many cases people are unaware that theyre not earning fair wages,Ž Anderson said. A few more takeaways, all examining Florida: € Education does not eliminate the gender pay gap. In contrast, the gap is largest for those with a bachelors or advanced degree. € Women with this level of education earn 71.4 cents for every dollar earned by a man with similar education. € Womens earnings vary by race and ethnicity, ranging from a high of $40,505 for white women who work full time, year-round, to a low of $29,878 for Hispanic women. Hispanic women earn 59 percent of white mens earnings. Janeth Castrejon is pursuing a communications degree at Florida Gulf Coast University while working at CareerSource Southwest Florida, an agency that connects employers and job seekers. She is also a veteran of the U.S. Army. When I went to the military, you got paid by your rank,Ž she said. Its interesting how the military is able to achieve that, but in the civilian world, were not.Ž Castrejon said the gender pay gap is an issue that comes up among women in the career centers, with Hispanics like herself among those feeling the disparity most. Its taken me a lot of huge effort and hard work to prove myself,Ž she said. I just think its so unfair. Thats one of the biggest challenges weve tried to overcome over the years. It amazes me how much more we have to do in order to prove ourselves. Its something professional women talk about, something we “ght for. Were not there yet.Ž The constant in the decline since the last report in 2004 is that for the entire time Republicans have controlled the Florida House, Senate and governors of“ce, where jobs have been the focus of Gov. Rick Scott. And a separate recent study by WalletHub ranking states on womens economic well-being, found that blue states overwhelming averaged higher (15th) and favored females more than red states, which were 33rd on average. Florida ranked 35th on that one. Christopher Westley, director of the Regional Economic Research Institute at FGCU, concedes this is a complicated issue that can be politicized. Having the goal of higher levels of economic input can often result in larger differentials between genders and other groups,Ž he said. It reminds me of some of the diversi“cation data. Sometimes the more diversi“ed counties dont generate as much wealth creation, almost as if theres a tradeoff for economic growth in some senses.Ž While discrimination might be a factor in the gender pay gap, the economist said, it is far from the only factor. What the research shows is the explanation of the gap is multi-variant,Ž he said. Youve got to break down the different causes that can explain it and once you correct for those things, the gap often disappears.Ž Westley said there are many factors that can explain the gap. For one, men and women tend to be attracted to different types of work. Men often take on riskier jobs and riskier jobs pay more,Ž he said. They tend to be attracted to different types of professions in general, so that results in different pay between the two groups. If you look at it within professions and say, single female executives and single male executives, theres virtually no pay gap and sometimes the women earn more than the men do.Ž It makes sense, Westley said, that people with less education have a smaller pay gap because they tend to be con“ned to lower paying jobs where theres less opportunity for a wage spread. Your skill set is a factor,Ž he said. It constrains you to what jobs and income you can get. It comes down to what occupations are women attracted to? Ž Westley warned, too, that pushing too hard could bring backlash: If there is an assumption that women require political protection because of this issue, one adverse effect of this is women will become harder to hire because employers will potentially think they are legal liabilities.Ž Bob McFalls, president and CEO of the Florida Philanthropic Network, has a different point of view. He said these are critical issues affecting women throughout Florida, calling this report a call to action.Ž We are not going forward, we are actually sliding back in time,Ž he said. Its very important to work together to close the gender wage gap. Its important to have a competitive Florida and be competitive on the national stage.Ž Closing the gap, he said, will ensure a better state for everyone: We have a lot of work in front of us.Ž The Sun supplemented this report.PAYFROM PAGE 1 Movements like #MeToo are drawing increased attention to the systemic discrimination facing women in a range of professional “elds, from Hollywood and journalism to banking and government. Discrimination is also a problem on user-driven sites like Wikipedia. Wikipedia is the “fth most popular website worldwide. In January, the English-language version of the online encyclopedia had over 7.3 billion page views, more than 2000 percent higher than other online reference sites such as IMDb or Dictionary.com. The volume of traf“c on Wikipedias site „ coupled with its integration into search results and digital assistants like Alexa and Siri „ makes Wikipedia the predominant source of information on the web. YouTube even recently announced that it would start including Wikipedia links below videos on highly contested topics. But studies show that Wikipedia underrepresents content on women.Signs of biasDriven by a cohort of over 33 million volunteer editors, Wikipedias content can change in almost real time. That makes it a prime resource for current events, popular culture, sports and other evolving topics. But relying on volunteers leads to systemic biases „ both in content creation and improvement. A 2013 study estimated that women only accounted for 16.1 percent of Wikipedias total editor base. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales believes that number has not changed much since then, despite several organized efforts. If women dont actively edit Wikipedia at the same rate as men, topics of interest to women are at risk of receiving disproportionately low coverage. One study found that Wikipedias coverage of women was more comprehensive than Encyclopedia Britannica online, but entries on women still constituted less than 30 percent of biographical coverage. Entries on women also more frequently link to entries on men than vice-versa and are more likely to include information on romantic relationships and family roles. Whats more, Wikipedias policies state that all content must be attributable to a reliable, published source.Ž Since women throughout history have been less represented in published literature than men, it can be challenging to “nd reliable published sources on women. An obituary in a paper of record is often a criterion for inclusion as a biographical entry in Wikipedia. So it should be no surprise that women are underrepresented as subjects in this vast online encyclopedia. As The New York Times itself noted, its obituaries since 1851 have been dominated by white menŽ „ an oversight the paper now hopes to address through its OverlookedŽ series.What can be done?The solution to systemic biases that plague the web remains unclear. But libraries, museums, individual editors and the Wikimedia Foundation itself continue to make efforts to improve gender representation on sites such as Wikipedia. Organized edit-a-thons can create a community around editing and developing underrepresented content. Edit-a-thons aim to increase the number of active female editors on Wikipedia, while empowering participants to edit entries on women during the event and into the future. Later this month, our university library, the Rochester Institute of Technology library, will host its second annual Women on Wikipedia Edit-athon in celebration of Womens History Month. The goal is to improve the content on at least 100 women in one afternoon. For the past four years, students in our schools American Womens and Gender History course have worked to create new or substantially edit existing Wikipedia entries about women. One student created an entry on deaf-blind pioneer Geraldine Lawhorn, while another added roughly 1,500 words to jazz artist Blanche Calloways entry. This class was supported by the Wikimedia Education Program, which encourages educators and students to contribute to Wikipedia in academic settings. Through this assignment, students can immediately see how their efforts contribute to the larger conversation around womens history topics. One student said that it was the most meaningful assignment she hadŽ as an undergraduate. Other efforts to address gender bias on Wikipedia include Wikipedias Inspire Campaign; organized editing communities such as Women in Red and Wikipedias Teahouse; and the National Science Foundations Collaborative Research grant. Wikipedias dependence on volunteer editors has resulted in several systemic issues, but it also offers an opportunity for self-correction. Organized efforts help to give voice to women previously ignored by other resources.

The City Council will review and approve the “nancing at the May 2 council meeting. Im just upset with the amount of money they have to borrow,Ž said Joan Hoffman, PGI resident of 27 years. Im in the middle where they say its ƒ not the top priority, but you know it just keeps getting worse.Ž The city still expects FEMA to refund 75 percent of the payment for damages, with the remaining 25 percent split between the state and the city. City staff told Hoffman that construction might begin sometime by the end of the year ƒ provided we dont have another hurricane and then what,Ž she said. According to the citys latest weekly highlights report, the contractor poured 250 panels last week for a total of 4,505 seawall panels to date in PGI. According to city engineer Mark Gering, the city has scheduled the replacements based on a highto low-priority level. The city sent inspectors out to every single site of damage. Originally there were 933 (sites),Ž said Gering. We looked at them, we took photos, we took notes and we went back to the site with our FEMA inspectors and we prioritized those that we felt were the very highest priority.Ž Roughly, a third of the replacement projects needed immediate attention; that third was classi“ed as high priority. The others,Ž said Gering at the workshop, most of you folks here in the room are probably mediums. There are a few low-priorities of homeowners, but most of the vast majority of low-priorities are vacant lots.Ž Gering said the city looked at each one of those sites based on the potential of erosion and further damages. Pending inspection of those sites, the city determined the high to low grading.Ž We then put a contract out for the contractors so they could bid on different zones and they, the contractors themselves, “gured out what was the most expeditious way for them to proceed through the zones,Ž said Gering. Only one change was made from the initial determination because one of the jobs wasnt ready, so the contractor moved off and came back, according to Gering. There is more than one home per job,Ž said Gering, Several homes per job. We do all of our work in one linear strip „ wherever the seawall went bad to wherever it starts good again. Were doing that in one particular strip. So you may be a low-priority in getting repaired because one of your neighbors is a high-priority and youre connected directly to them.Ž Gering said that it gets expensive if the city has to tie a seawall back into the ground and create another anchor at the ends of that strip. The city and contractors are responsible for establishing seawall replacement for homes based on sequence numbers. At the workshop, maps were displayed explaining each job the city has planned for the next couple of months. Of those jobs displayed, all have been given a sequence number. Were still waiting on some of the contractors to get sequence numbers on the other jobs but were not quite comfortable enough with what the contractors progress is to give you all dates yet,Ž said Gering. Once we know that what the one contractor is doing the best and we know his rate, we can project that when hes going to be at different locations.Ž Gering said the other two contractors are ramping up their speed,Ž but the city doesnt want to con“rm any timeline at this point based on some schedule four months out that we dont even have a clue whether hes (the contractors) going to hit that by two months or two months late.Ž Baldwin said, I do believe they (the city) are working for our best, and hopefully if everything theyre saying is actual, this will happen, but its just a massive project. A lot of people see only their backyard, they dont see the entire citys damage. I really do believe that this is something that we will have to learn to live with for a while. If it takes a year to do it, then its a year to do it.Ž Anna Severn and Ralph Beatty live in the SE zone of PGI. Their seawalls are in a low priority for replacement with the city but are bowing out against their dock. (The seawall) is starting to sag out,Ž said Beatty, from the wall next to it. Its going to damage our dock that we (will) have to replace ... its going to damage our dock, its going to damage our boat ƒ whatever ƒ and that comes out of our checkbook. We knew what the rules were going in.Ž According to Gering, PGI residents are responsible for any damage to their own docks, boats, boat lifts, etc.Email: dsutphin@sun-herald.comSEAWALLFROM PAGE 1 2 0 1 8 0 4 1 6 o t e n c 0 5 p d f 1 1 5 A p r 1 8 2 3 : 3 1 : 4 9

What he has accomplished has been to bring the swamp with him. Scott Pruitt, head of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) presents a good example. He insists in ”ying “rst class and somehow on his way to businessŽ he manages to drop by his home in Oklahoma. And, when it comes to housing, Mr. Pruitt, arriving in Washington, found a lobbyist to rent him a room in her condo at bargain prices. It just so happens that his landlady is married to the owner of a pipeline company that needed approval from the EPA. Tom Price resigned from Health and Human Services for using private jets on the taxpayers dime. Ben Carson needed a $31,000 dining room set in his of“ce. Hes still hanging around HUD and his family members have sat in on department meetings. Ryan Zinke, who runs the Department of the Interior, is under investigation for using his position for political purposes. He also enjoys travel and in October was almost a half million over his travel budget. He is still protectingŽ federal lands by selling them off to the highest bidder. Steve Mnuchin, secretary of the treasury, took his wife too see the total eclipse on a government plane. And it goes on. With one year gone in this administration, 44 people have been “red, resigned or left for unknown reasons. This presidency is unprecedented in every way.Alvin Lubiner Port CharlotteEditor: Let me start by saying Im against killing animals, but I also understand its a necessary evil sometimes. After reading the article on the front page of April 11 paper, I dont understand the joy that people get from killing something, but what I understand even less, the joy that people get from torturing something. When you shoot a deer with a ri”e, you pull a trigger and its done. When you hit a Editor: Like many conservatives, I am aghast at the nasty changes that the extreme left has managed to in”ict upon our country, such as: The loss of freedom of speech. Students, colleges, antifa and liberal media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter are preventing any conservative ideas to be voiced. Sanctuary cities and open borders. The idea that any one from anywhere in the world can come here and stay here regardless of our laws and of the crimes that illegals commit here. Legal unlimited abortion on demand. Right up to the moment of birth. The eradication of our history as statues of historical “gures are torn down. We recoiled in horror when ISIS destroyed ancient monuments; now we are doing just that. The unwillingness to face facts. Persons from certain groups commit crimes and murders much more than other groups, and one group commits almost all terrorist acts. Rather than pretend otherwise, Editor: I must take exception with a recent letter regarding Trumps accomplishments. Most of the writers claims are false or very misleading and I believe she is intelligent enough to know better. She begins her letter by stating that Trump has played more golf in one year than any other president in eight years. Politifact notes that Trump had 44 golf outings from January 2017 to January 2018. In contrast, according to Golf Digest, Obama played 306 rounds in eight years. Who cares? She then declared Trump had more people from his gator with a crossbow, its just begun.Ž That statement prevented me from reading the rest of the article. Its just wrong to torture something. Noreen Baxter Punta GordaEditor: On the morning of April 6, my “anc tripped over the edge of a sidewalk slab adjacent to the extensive seawall damage along the Peace River on the east side of Laishley Park. That slab has been elevated due to upheaval of the sidewalk caused by seawall damage and consequent erosion of the soil beneath the sidewalk. She took a very hard fall. Fortunately, she suffered only minor injuries, skins and bruises, on her knees and hand. This sidewalk is a very busy public walk and part of Punta Gordas Harbor Walk. The current damage is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Given the high volume of foot traf“c over this public walkway I am surprised that repair of the seawalls there have not received higher priority. No repair work has been initiated to date. I am aware that extensive seawall repairs have occurred, and are ongoing in Punta Gorda Isles. Those seawalls border private homes and effect far fewer citizens. Can someone tell me why those repairs take priority over Laishley Park?Randall Nelson Punta Gordaadministration arrested and indicted thus far than any president in eight years. Trump to date has had only one administration of“cial indicted. General Michael Flynn. Papadopoulos and Manafort were not in his administration. Most modern day administrations have seen many indictments, except Obamas. There were none, but Attorneys General Holder and Lynch were in Obamas hip pocket. The writer then states Trump has rolled back environmental protections and allowed dumping into drinking water aquifers. If Trump had allowed this, an outrageous accusation, he would be removed from of“ce by now. What aquifers and where? I havent space to address the remainder of the writers misleading statements, but I would like to ask that she please stop manipulating half truths and prevarications to support her leftist ideology. It doesnt work anymore because facts are easily obtained on the internet by any reader who cares to look.Carl A. Hansen Punta GordaEditor: Trump supporters have expressed their wishes for him to follow up with action on the many statements and promises he made during the course of the election cycle. Now that he is president and leader of the free world, perhaps they should reconsider these statements he made during the election. I love war,Ž what is the use of having nuclear weapons if you dont use them,Ž perhaps this may be the last election we will ever haveŽ and when he asked those at a rally to stand and pledge their allegiance to him personally, Donald J. Trump, not the United States of America, it brings to mind memories of Germany in the 1930s. His constant need for adoration combined with a lack of knowledge of how our republic functions, the power and responsibilities of our three branches of government is not only hard to believe but an embarrassment to the United States. Common sense tells us that it is impossible to give every one a bigŽ tax reduction while increasing spending without increasing the national debt. You cant get 10 gallons out of a “vegallon can. I stopped believing in the tooth fairy a long time ago. His commentary on sexual harassment of females „ If you are rich and famous, you can do anything you want to them. They expect itŽ „ speaks volumes. God help America. Joe Skowyra Punta Gordawe need to face this openly in order to protect all citizens. Fake news. We have been inundated by hysterical false charges and supposed leaks about Russian collusion by the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC in particular. These news outlets have lost all trust in the fairness and truthfulness of their reporting I have understood for many years that new ideas and needed changes almost always come from the minds of liberals, rather than from conservatives, but these changes are destroying our democracy.Russell Wilcox Port CharlotteVenturePitch highlights local entrepreneursOUR POSITION: The second VenturePitch competition highlighted an evolving industrious group of entrepreneurs in Southwest Florida.Last weeks second edition of VenturePitch of Southwest Florida provided more evidence of bright, young entrepreneurs willing to invest their talent and ideas in the future of our area. The Sun Newspapers put up $60,000 in awards to help the winners advance their products through an investment and partnership with Adrenaline Venture Fund, Fifth Avenue Advisors and Tamiami Angel Funds. It was a wise investment, if you talk to the two hosts of the event, Tim Cartwright, general partner of Adrenaline Venture Fund; and David Dunn-Rankin, president of Sun Coast Media, which owns this newspaper. There is actually a vibrant entrepreneurial technology community (here), that we need to support and lift up,Ž Dunn-Rankin said. Judges at this years event were stumped as to who should be the “rst-place winner „ so they named co-winners. Stabilized Steps of Naples and Envision Solutions of Bonita Springs each received $25,000 in investment capital as co-winners of the event, which is designed along the lines of the Shark TankŽ TV show. Under competition guidelines, the “rst two “nishers would have been awarded $25,000 each anyway. In addition, AmbuTrak of Estero earned a $10,000 local hostŽ award from the Sun Newspapers as a startup within its area of in”uence which deserved a boost through investment. Punta Gorda builder and inventor Eryk Hardwick, who founded Stabilized Steps with partner Stephanie Gomez, has created patented stabilizers for the bottom of walkers that provide people with mobility issues with freedom of movement on sand, gravel, mud, snow and dif“cult terrain. Envision Solutions offers a computer-based therapy training program that can help stroke victims overcome some vision losses. All four “nalists were technology companies focused on health care with an emphasis on the aging. This technology niche is appropriate for our area and one that we can build upon. What judges and sponsors found most exciting about the event is the fact two of the four “nalists are still students at Florida Gulf Coast University and a third is a former student. That a local university has developed a curriculum and programs that spur this type of innovative approach to creating new businesses speaks well of the opportunities in Southwest Florida for growth and investment. The potential certainly exists to make Southwest Florida a hotbed for entrepreneurs looking to put their products on the national market, thanks to a community that embraces their adventurous ideas. That Babcock Ranch is more than willing to be someplace special and unique and use its Hatchery as an incubator for these new businesses just enhances the opportunities here. The excitement and success of this event is just one more sign that Babcock Ranch is a game changer for Southwest Florida. The worlds “rst solar city is creating a new type of community that attracts those who want to live and work in the next tech generation of a city built from the ground up. Congratulations to the AdventurePitch winners and kudos to those who invested in their future and the future of Southwest Florida by creating such a showcase to present new and exciting business ideas.

It seems like this economical solution has somehow escaped Charlotte County while those of us that frequently travel the road are put at risk.Benton Hester Port Charlottea vehicle hydroplaning into rut/rise resulting in a tragic accident should be clear to everyone. The county solution is to shovel some fill into the ruts, completely missing what is really going on. Many road departments utilize a motor grader to cutŽ the shoulder down so water can leave the roadway and road margin to flow into the ditch. The the present time, why cant Charlotte County actually maintain it properly? The shoulders of the road are allowed to build up until water is retained along the roadway. Then drivers deviate slightly onto the saturated shoulder causing ruts at the edge of the roadway while increasing the adjacent buildup.

When one makes a comparison between the two the results are obvious. Hancik is the only choice. Three things that are the facts in any comparison; Experience, knowledge and credentials. Hancik has all three, while Julie Price has none. Experience: Hancik has over 30 years managing an airport larger than Punta Gorda with four airlines. Hancik is the only current member of the airport commission with any aviation experience and he is currently vice chairman of the board. Knowledge: Years dealing with airlines, the FAA, and a array of vendors with whom the airport must deal. Degree in aeronautics from St Louis University. Some politicians “t their era perfectly; others are born out of their time. Donald Trump „ embodying the spirit of Richard Nixon by way of Pat Buchanan „ is the master of his low, cruel, dishonest moment. Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan „ inspired by Ronald Reagan by way of Jack Kemp „ has been lost and disoriented. His career-ending confrontation with Trump represents the end of a more hopeful and humane era. Ryans exit is further evidence that the GOPs dark side has won. For now. Taking his career as a whole, Ryan has been the heir of Kemp in many of the good ways without the bad. He has been the last of the cheerful conservatives,Ž observes National Affairs Yuval Levin, an immigration optimist, a growth and opportunity supply-sider, genuinely concerned about the poor and disadvantaged.Ž Unlike Kemp, Ryan understood massive public debt as an unconscionable burden on the future, and supported long-term entitlement reform that would have shifted burdens to Ryans own generation for the bene“t of generations that follow. But the mismatch of Ryan and his times has been increasingly evident and unsustainable. He has tried to be aspirational in a party grown gloomy and angry. He has a moderate temperament in a party lurching toward disturbing extremes. He has remained a 1980s supply-sider in a very different economy „ meaning that his culminating achievement, the 2017 tax cut, was the last gasp of old Republican economic thinking rather than the start of something new. Ryans more welcoming attitude toward immigrants has been repudiated by the base of his party. His rhetorical emphasis on helping the poor has remained largely rhetorical. And Ryan tragically miscalculated in his relationship with Trump. Ryans bet on cooperation was not irrational „ or, at least, would not have been irrational with a rational partner. He clearly thought Trump could be appeased, managed, stroked and ”attered into irrelevance while the real work of conservative governance could go forward in Congress. It often fell to the speaker to call the president with explanations of the presidents own policy positions. Ryan decided to join the staff of adult daycare. Rather than alienating Trump, he would try to ignore the insane tweet du jour and focus on doing his job. In practice, this meant ignoring the primary way that Trump communicates with the country, the world, Congress and his own White House staff. It made Ryan seem disconnected from political reality and complicit in outrage after outrage. His silence was taken as permission or cowardice. Ryans bet was not winnable. Trumps slavery to impulse makes managing him an impossible task. The presidents aggressive ignorance on issues such as health care has consistently complicated the legislative process. In fact, Trump has publicly and personally attacked many Republican legislators and often used the GOP-controlled Congress as a political foil. All this has gotten worse over time, as the president has become more accustomed to power and less tolerant of dissent. In Trump, a total lack of governing skill is now matched with complete con“dence in his own instincts. God help us. Clearly, Paul Ryan could not. The speaker, like many others, underestimated the power of the presidency to shape and de“ne the GOP. Trumps in”uence is now pervasive „ leaving many Republican legislators privately contemptuous of the president and publicly silent or supportive. Given the bases enthusiasm for Trump, many elected Republicans now feel they must choose between hypocrisy and political suicide. There is a third choice: Leave politics entirely. I suspect Ryan is not the last Republican who will exercise this option. Taken in isolation, many of Ryans decisions to avoid confrontation with the president made political sense. Taken together, they lead to a sad conclusion. We needed Ryan to resist Trumps norm busting, his strategy of dehumanization, his assault on institutions, his thinly veiled racism, his trashing of our civic culture. We needed Ryan to be a voice of conscience in the age of Trump. And he refused to play that role. It is hard to fault a man for failing to be a hero. But Ryan will not be judged by history for his agenda of tax cuts, increased military spending and deregulation. He will be remembered as the Republican leader who could not prevent Donald Trumps total takeover of the GOP. In many ways, Ryan was the best of his party. It was not nearly enough. Michael Gerson is co-hosting, along with Amy Holmes, a new, limited-run PBS interview program called In PrincipleŽ that runs on Fridays at 8:30 p.m. Eastern. His email address is michaelgerson@ washpost.com.Ryan will be remembered for submission to Trump Michael Gerson President Trumps decision last year to launch 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base was intended to send the Assad regime a message that its use of chemical weapons would no longer be tolerated. But the strikes also had a broader purpose: showing other regimes that the Obama era of U.S. weakness was over, and that Americas adversaries would have to adjust their calculations about our willingness to act in response to their provocations. Now, a year later, the Assad regime has reportedly de“ed Trump by its apparent launch of another chemical weapons attack. Once again, how Trump responds will have consequences far beyond Syria. With a high-stakes summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un coming up, Trump needs to keep in mind how his next move in Syria will be seen not just in Damascus, Tehran and Moscow but also in Pyongyang. He should use his next strikes on Syria both to punish dictator Bashar Assad and to demonstrate to Kim what might happen to North Korea if it continues to pursue nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that could destroy American cities. Last year, Trump delivered a measured, proportionate response to Assads chemical attack, hoping this would deter the Syrian dictator. According to retired Gen. Jack Keane, former vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army, What we shouldnt do is another measured, proportionate response yet larger. That wont deter him.Ž Instead, Keane says, What we have to do is destroy all his capabilities that deliver those weapons.Ž The United States should take out all of Assads rotary and “xed-wing aircraf t, Keane says, and destroy all of his air“elds, aviation fuel at those air“elds, aviation maintenance equipment and aviation munitions. If he still has artillery-delivered chemical weapons,Ž Keane says, then we should take down his artillery as well.Ž In other words, another bloody noseŽ strike „ even a bigger one „ is not enough. We need to conduct large-scale operations that will destroy Assads weapons-of-massdestruction capability. Such an attack would eliminate Assads ability to commit chemical weapons atrocities. Just as importantly, it would also provide an unspoken preview for Kim of what could happen to his nuclear and missile programs if he persists in developing and testing the capability to threaten the United States with nuclear destruction. Sen. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., has suggested that Trump should also consider taking out Assad with a decapitationŽ strike. Assad and his inner circle should be considered war criminals, legitimate military targets,Ž Graham said this week. If you have the opportunity to take him out, you should.Ž Graham is absolutely right that Assad and his cronies are legitimate military targets, but Trump should hold off on such a strike „ at least initially „ and instead warn Assad that he reserves the right to hit leadership targets directly if he retaliates. Why? Because Trump wants Kim to see that a similar military operation against North Koreas weapons of mass destruction would not necessarily result in regime destruction „ as long as Kim does not retaliate. By acting decisively in Syria, Trump also has an opportunity to send a message not just to North Korea but also to China that he is not bluf“ng when he threatens to act against Kims regime. Chinese President Xi Jinping was with Trump at Mar-a-Lago when he launched last years strikes against Assad, and the Chinese leader responded by stepping up economic pressure on Pyongyang. A large-scale operation to eliminate Assads capability to produce weapons of mass destruction would be a wake-up call to China that Trump is willing to take similar action against North Korea; it would also create an incentive for Xi to step up the pressure for de-nuclearization. Trump also needs to stop talking about withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria. An American withdrawal would not only allow Assad to escalate his brutal campaign of atrocities in Syria, but also it would tell Pyongyang that Washington does not have the stomach to see its military campaigns through. If Trump cant keep 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria, Kim would calculate, he would hardly have the fortitude to see through a much more difficult military intervention against North Korea. Trump has an opportunity to end Syrias ability to massacre innocent men, women and children with weapons of mass destruction. But he also has a chance to show Pyongyang before the summit meeting that his threats of military action are more than bluster. The success or failure of that meeting depends on whether Kim believes Trump is serious about taking military action „ which is why Kim will be carefully watching what Trump does next in Syria.

Its certainly an in”uential group. But the idea they can just sort of wiggle their “nger and make things happen magically in politics, it really isnt like that. There are many other candidates who have sided with them then parted ways and lived to tell the story.Ž Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey was an A-plus rated NRA darling during his 2010 campaign, the group spending $1.5 million to help him get elected. But a few years later, after the Sandy Hook tragedy, he sponsored bipartisan legislation to expand background checks. It did not pass and the NRA turned on Toomey, but he still won re-election in 2016. You can do the right thing and youll be “ne,Ž Toomey said in an interview about the climate Scott now faces. In his state, like mine, a majority of voters feel very strongly about the Second Amendment, as do I, and these folks voted for me. I commend him for be willing to stand up.Ž Despite all the social media noise, the legislation just might help the Republican governor win a seat in the Senate. € € € The law Scott signed last month raised the age to buy a gun in Florida from 18 to 21 with a three-day waiting period. The NRA “led suit immediately. In public comments, Hammer included Scott among turncoat RepublicansŽ who caved to bullying and coercionŽ by passing the changes in response to the shooting at a high school in Parkland that killed 17 people on Feb. 14. Four years ago, Hammer praised Scott for his historicŽ signing of “ve pro-gun bills. Florida has long been at the vanguard of NRA-backed policies, including the controversial stand your groundŽ law. But the national movement spurred by Parkland, with massive rallies in Washington and cities coast-to-coast, led to action from state and local governments and companies such as Dicks Sporting Goods to end some gun sales. It came just as Scott was preparing to run against Nelson, and Scotts critics say his change of heart is all about politics. Scott showed no such initiative after the 2016 mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando or an attack last year at the Fort Lauderdale airport. The fact that Rick Scott in this politically craven way sees opportunity in accommodation with our side is an indication of the weakness of the NRA,Ž said Peter Ambler, executive director of a gun safety group started by former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. But elections are about choices. Bill Nelson has had the courage throughout his tenure to do the right thing, to vote for gun safety, while Rick Scott was doing the exact opposite, while he was embracing the NRA.Ž Nelson, who likes to tell audiences hes been a lifelong hunter, charges that Scott will say and do anything to try and get elected. He highlights an NRAbacked provision of the new law that calls for arming school personnel, though it would not apply to many teachers and school districts have largely said they would not participate in the optional program. (Scott opposed arming teachers but said he had to compromise.) On raising the purchase age and adding the three-day waiting period, the Democrat said they were steps in the right directionŽ but stressed stricter measures are needed, including universal background checks and limiting large capacity magazine clips. Nelson also wants to ban assault-style weapons. For Scott, being under attack from the NRA could attract votes from independents and moderate voters who are more inclined to favor gun restrictions. Scott also has the support of some families of the victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, who stood with him at his Capitol of“ce in Tallahassee on March 23 as he signed the legislation. (Others, particularly Douglas students, say the legislation fell well short.) Scott can avoid the weight of the NRA because he doesnt face a serious primary challenger, will have no trouble raising money and is not likely to face an exodus of Republican voters over the gun issue.NRAFROM PAGE 1 RALEIGH, N.C. „ More than 200 million eggs distributed to restaurants and grocery stores in nine states have been recalled because of bacterial contamination. A notice posted on the Food & Drug Administration website Friday said the eggs shipped from a North Carolina farm may be tainted with salmonella. The bacteria can cause nausea, diarrhea and, in rare cases death. Twenty-two illnesses have been reported. Consumers with these eggs shouldnt eat them,Ž FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Twitter. Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund.Ž The notice said Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms was voluntarily recalling the eggs through an abundance of caution.Ž A company spokesman didnt immediately respond to a message seeking further comment Sunday. The eggs reached consumers in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, according to the notice. The recall came about after the illnesses were reported in states along the East Coast, and the FDA inspected the farm in eastern North Carolinas Hyde County that produces about 2 million eggs per day. Gottlieb said the agencys testing connected the recalled eggs to the people who got sick. The notice lists varieties of a Food Lion store brand as well as some cartons available as the Great Value brand, which is sold at Walmart. The recall also lists eggs that were distributed to the Waf”e House restaurant chain. Food Lion has pulled the recalled eggs from shelves of the approximately 400 stores where they were available, said spokeswoman Emma Inman. The eggs that are in the stores today are safe,Ž she said by phone. She said she didnt have information on whether Food Lion customers were among those who got sick.

Rick Scott said President Donald Trump should not dismiss special prosecutor Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. The Tampa Bay Times reports that the governor made his remarks at a Pinellas County Republican Party dinner Saturday night, telling the crowd Trump is going to decide what he wants to do. He gets to make that decision. I wouldnt dismiss him.Ž Trump has denied reports that he is considering “ring the former FBI director, but he has been highly critical of the investigation, calling it a witch huntŽ on Twitter. Scott, who cannot run for a third term because of term limits, recently announced he will challenge Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in November. He told the crowd that it wont be a cheap or easyŽ election. If we show up in November and bust our butt and tell our story, then we will win in a landslide,Ž Scott said. Theres no reason we cant win this election.Ž He also told the crowd he supports Trumps decision to launch a missile strike against Syria on Friday.

Page 10 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, April 16, 2018 LOCAL SPORTS LOCAL SPORTS With a 435-pound bench press and a 365-pound clean and jerk, Devin Leacock had little trouble capturing the 2017 2A State boys weightlifting title for the heavyweight division. But even though the Port Charlotte lifter became a state champion for the “rst time last year by lifting a combined 800 pounds and 40 more pounds than the next closest competitor, it didnt quite live up to expectations for him. Leacock tweaked his wrist when completing his clean and jerk lift and the injury ultimately held him back from chasing the state record of 830 pounds that year. That feeling of disappointment never left Leacock, who returned to the state championships this year and shattered the Florida state record with an 880-pound total lift. This time donning a pair of wrist wraps, the Pirates senior bench-pressed 470 pounds and clean and jerked a state-record 410 pounds. Ever since that day, Ive worked hard on my forearm strength so I could strengthen my wrists,Ž Leacock said of the 2017 state championships. I learned my lesson. When I got the lift, it was such a good feeling. I dont even know how to describe it.Ž The two-time weightlifting state champion is also rated as a three-star defensive tackle and is committed to play at USF after his “nal days as a Pirate come to a close. While Leacock said he hopes to chase more records as a Bull, including all of USFs lifting records along with the NFL combine bench-press record of 51 reps of 225 pounds, he also has bigger goals for outside of the weight room. I wanna break more records there too, but I also want to get my Masters in business so that I can open up my own gym,Ž he said. I want to be able to train kids how to lift the right way and have someone run it for me when I cant be there.Ž For Leacock, lifting and athletics have given him opportunities he never dreamed of when he “rst moved to Port Charlotte from the west coast of Florida near the end of his freshman year. It was then that he realized his potential for strength and began to take matters into his own hands. The end of his freshman year when he was training, he would come talk to me and ask me what he should be eating and what areas he could be training in the gym he went to on his own time,Ž boys weightlifting coach and Pirates defensive line coach Jarret Debus said. So I would give him some extra workouts to do at the gym, and after like two or three months he was getting bigger and stronger and thats kind of when I knew like, Oh, OK weve got something here.Ž While it took little time for Debus and the rest of the Pirates coaching staff to recognize the potential of Leacock, his newfound strength took some opponents by surprise. The 6-foot-3, 270-pound defensive tackle was able to manhandle one-on-one coverage his junior season, elevating him to his three-star ranking and drawing him eight D-I scholarship offers, according to 247Sports. The strength comes in handy. It was actually kind of hard this year though because at one point they even quadruple-teamed me,Ž Leacock said of his time on the defensive line. There was a play that they pulled the center, the right guard, the right tackle and the left guard and they all came to block me. But I would get triple-teamed a lot. My junior year though, I came in there one-on-one and Id just hand it to them.Ž Along with turning him into a state record holder and a collegiate athlete, Debus said that Leacocks dedication to the Pirates and the weight room has helped him “nd a family in the community of Port Charlotte. From the coaching staff opening the gym for him at 5:15 a.m. for morning workouts, to Debus having the defensive linemen over for Wednesday night dinners at his house, Leacock has been a welcomed presence in Port Charlotte athletics for the past three and a half years. Hes really got a special place in all of our hearts,Ž Debus said. And I dont want to speak for just myself because we have a staff of coaches hes very, very close with, so Ill use the term all of our hearts. Hes basically like a son to all of us. Theres been a huge support group behind Devin.Ž Though Leacock takes pride in the numbers and records hes put up at Port Charlotte, what hell miss most is the people who helped welcome him to a new high school and accepted him with open arms. As he moves on to the next chapter of his journey, hell have his sights focused on breaking some more records, but he wont forget about the home hes made in Port Charlotte. Im gonna miss the people, the people here are good man,Ž he said. They care about you, you know? Theyre like a big family, everyone is connected somehow.ŽLeacock finds a home, two state championships in Port CharlotteBy VINNIE PORTELLSPORTS WRITER SUN PHOTOS BY KAT GODINAPort Charlottes Devin Leacock gets low in his clean during the district meet at Charlotte High School.

PREP SPORTS: Boys WeightliftingFive boys gymnasts from Universal Performing Arts Center have quali“ed for the regional competition. The boys quali“ed at the recent USA Gymnastics Mens State Championships in Estero for the Region 8 Mens Compulsory Championships in Chattanooga, Tenn. Owen Shake, Luc Buettner and Anthony Donza were the Level 5 gymnasts competing in Division I to reach the April 27-29 regional. Johnathan Shpak and Jonah Bair were the Level 4 boys in Division I to advance. Im really proud of my boys this season. We really worked hard,Ž boys head coach Marcus Skyles said. We worked a lot on form. Cleaning up form is what gets you higher scores. They got what they deserved.Ž Sixth-grader Shake “nished with a team-high 58.600 points to earn a gold medal for all-around among the 11 boys in his session. He collected silver medals for the pommel horse, rings and high bar and bronze medals for the ”oor, vault and parallel bars. The Port Charlotte resident quali“ed for the regional meet last year, but this is the most medals he has won at the state meet. Im pretty sure it was my form that helped,Ž said Shake, whose parents and older brother will travel with him as he visits Tennessee for the “rst time. On the rings my foot was so pointed in the competition that whenever I dismounted and walked off, it cramped.Ž The 11-year-old said bonus moves boosted his scores, especially on the high bar, pommel horse and parallel bars. On the high bar, for example, he completed the free hip, baby giant and ”yaway. Shake said he has improved the most on the high bar. Skyles said the boys have been practicing the bonuses two years to make sure they do the best they possibly can.Ž Buettner placed second and Donza fourth, respectively, among the 12 in their session. Buettner “nished with an allaround score of 58.300. He won the ”oor, vault and high bar, the latter on which he scored an 11.050. He executed ”awlessly,Ž Skyles said. He did a terri“c job on that.Ž Donza of North Port had a 56.300 all-around and was third in the vault and high bar. Last year was the “rst time Shpak, 8, and Bair, 9, competed, according to Skyles, and Shpak missed qualifying for the 2017 regional by one-tenth of a point. Shpak rose to the coachs challenge to put it out thereŽ and “nished fourth all-around among the 13 in his session. He was second in the pommel horse and third in the parallel bars and high bar. Johnathan Im sure was ecstatic about it,Ž he said. Among the 12 in his session, Bair won the ”oor and pommel horse and placed third in the all-around and rings.

Page 12 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, April 16, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSMike Ware was a member of the Kingsmen in Vietnam. He was a Huey helicopter pilot in 1968 who flew 101st Airborne Division assault troops into battle throughout that war-torn country. The Kingsmen is what they called themselves. I always wanted to be a pilot,Ž the 70-year-old Venice resident said. A couple of Army recruiters got me into helicopter school in Texas right after high school. I started flying Hueys at Fort Rucker, Ala., while still a teenager. I arrived in-country a couple of weeks before the Tet Offensive.Ž Eventually, hed become a warrant officer. The Tet Offensive was the largest coordinated enemy attack on South Vietnam military bases and cities by upwards of 100,000 North Vietnam Army soldiers and Vietcong guerrillas. It caused the South Vietnamese government to fall. During Tet, we were flying every day. I started flying the streets of Saigon with my helicopter. We flew 10 ships at a time in downtown Saigon. We were flying troops into battle and taking them out with the wounded,Ž Ware recalled. I spent my first three months flying around Saigon and in the Delta. We had our last battle during Tet at the race track in Saigon. At that point I was just a new peter pilot. I was the new guy sitting in the right seat with about 250 hours of experience. I didnt know what was going on. My job was to take over the controls if the other guy got hit. Wed fly into Saigon in tight formation „ 10 helicopters, one after the other. If you were flying in the back of this group it looked like the planes were all stacked on each other. The rotor blades were coming so close to each other. It was unbelievable how close they were. Then our gunships would come down on either side of the Hueys and lay down their miniguns and rockets. We had to stay right in line. If we got out of line we were subject to being hit by friendly “re. Then we moved our base to Camp Eagle at Hue „ the old imperial capital further north of Saigon. Our camp was part of a huge old cemetery. We thought the NVA wouldnt bother us so much if we were living in the cemetery because they respected their ancestors. It turned out that wasnt the case. We started doing secret single-ship insertions into the A Shau Valley in the Central Highlands controlled by enemy forces,Ž Ware said. Our people would stay out their in the mountains for several days and then wed go back and pick em up. This was one of the most exciting times of my life. I was getting to ”y and loving it,Ž he said. The problem was it was during a war and I had to share the sky with bullets. But I was also able to rescue people. We took three helicopters and flew into Laos. One copter carried the people we were dropping off, the second copter was a gunship to protect us and I was flying the third helicopter that would pick up the people we were inserting if there was any problem. I was flying at 8,000 to 10,000 feet, taking enemy flak from a .37mm gun. Shells from the gun would make little black puffs around us and causing our helicopter to bounce. I went up to 12,000 feet to get away from the enemy fire. Looking way down below us I could see the other two helicopters. About that time our gunship was hit by fire from a .51 cal. machine-gun nest perched on a nearby hill. It went down in ”ames. It was time for me to go to work. I dove down over our downed helicopter and came within 30 feet of the ground. We threw our rescue ropes out to the people in the downed helicopter. All “ve of them were clinging to the lines while dangling 250 feet above the ground. At the same time the enemy machine-gunner opened up on his helicopter, but somehow missed. The higher I hovered the closer I got to the .51 cal. enemy machine-gun on the mountainside. The only thing I could do was swing my helicopter toward the machinegunner which reduced the helicopters pro“le. My co-pilot and I were looking right down the barrel of the enemy gun while the guys below us were getting themselves hooked up. My crew-chief and door-gunner were in the back with their knives. If the guys on the ground got into any trouble with the ropes they were to cut the ropes and wed go. All I could do is sit there and hover while working my rudder peddle which moved the ship back and forth as tracer bullets whizzed by us. About that time my 20-minute fuel light turned on. I didnt have enough fuel to get us back to base,Ž Ware recalled 50 years later. I decided to take the copter up to 7,000 feet with the guys dangling from the ropes below us. The additional altitude put us within the range of the 37-mm gun once more. The guys on the ropes were taking shrapnel from the enemy as they froze from the altitude. By the time we reached the Vietnam border I had burned through my fuel. I was out and was forced to land at the deserted U.S. Marine base at Khe San. I came in for a landing and the two guys on the bottom of the rope hit the ground hard and broke their legs. I climbed out of my helicopter and walked back along the 250-feet of rope the guys had held onto to below us. As I pulled my helmet and gloves off the guys on the ropes were frozen and bleeding but laughing and giving me high-“ves. Ill never forget it as long as I live. This was one of the best days of my life. I got these guys out of there.Ž They had to bring a Chinook chopper in from Camp Eagle to transport their Huey back to base because of its lack of fuel. That day was kind of a miracle. We ran out of fuel but landed safely, the guys we rescued dangled on 250-foot ropes while being shot at by a .51 caliber machine-gun, neither the men nor the plane were stuck by enemy “re. My co-pilot became an ordained minister after that rescue we made in Laos,Ž Ware recalled. As for Ware, he just “nished a book he hopes to publish which he would like to see turned into a movie. Its called The Log Book.Ž After the war he ”ew helicopters in civilian life for large corporations in the Northeast. He also ”ew his share of medical choppers. When not being an aviator for fun and pro“t, Ware and his wife, Beth, are school teachers. He teaches high school classes and she is an art teacher. They have two daughters: Andrea and Adrian.Venice man flew Hueys for 101st Airborne SUN PHOTO BY DON MOOREMike Ware, 70, is a Venice resident where he teaches.PHOTO PROVIDEDMike Ware in Saigon during the Vietnam WarPHOTO PROVIDEDW-2 Mike Ware of Venice piloted a Huey assault helicopter for the 101st Airborne Division troops in Vietnam.

OUR TOWN: TODAYS WOMAN MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2018 INSIDE: CLASSIFIEDSWomen Who Care of Charlotte County started with a simple conversation. Someone mentioned to Sarah Glover that the concept of Women Who Care … women supporting nonpro“ts with set time and “nancial commitments … could work in Charlotte County. She in turn enlisted the aid of Patt Shoemaker, Fay Luepnitz and Carla Nix. They in turn got the whole thing started. This is the perfect complement to the things we are already doing in Charlotte County,Ž Luepnitz said. Which I think is why Sarah said to me, Hey, would you like to be involved in getting Women Who Care off the ground in Charlotte County?Ž The “rst meeting, April 24, 2017, pulled in 28 women and raised $2,800 for Share the Blessings Ministry. By the most recent meeting, in January, 54 women were members and raised $5,400 for the Fred Lang Foundation suicide prevention program. If the numbers seem symmetrical, its because they are. The idea behind Women Who Care is to bring together women for four meetings a year. Each woman is asked to contribute $100 per meeting toward a nonpro“t up for consideration at that meeting. A vote is taken, and the money is awarded. Theres no budget, no dues, no advertising. Were just an alliance of busy women who want to make a difference,Ž said Nix, who operates Nix & Associates, a real estate business in Punta Gorda, with her husband, Danny. Nix said members are asked to submit names of Charlotte County nonpro“ts for consideration of “nancial support. Every member can come to a meeting, and if they have a nonpro“t thats near and dear to their heart and theyre passionate about it, they can submit the name of that nonpro“t to a basket,Ž Nix said, We draw out of our basket three charities per meeting. The CEO or Executive Director of an organization cannot nominate their own nonpro“t, even if they are members. They talk for “ve minutes about that organization. We vote as a group.Ž An alliance of women who careBy RUSTY PRAYSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY RUSTY PRAYFay Luepnitz, left, and Carla Nix are two founders of Women Who Care of Charlotte County, an alliance of busy women who want to make a dierence,Ž Nix says. LeanneELYCOLUMNISTWhile getting regular exercise and reducing the amount of stress in your life are key components to reducing the in”ammation in your body, we can also add certain antiin”ammatory foods to our diet, (all the while cutting out sugar and processed food), to optimize our health. The following seven foods are antiin”ammatory super heroes and you should eat them frequently, or at least three-four times per week: € Cold-water “sh. Cold water “sh like wild salmon, cod, sardines, haddock and sole are all high in fats that have great anti-in”ammatory properties. Keyword: Wild (skip the farm raised) € Vegetables. Surprise! Vegetables are good for you. However, most North Americans arent getting enough plants into their diets. You should be eating at least eight or nine servings of veggies every day. That means you should have vegetables with each meal. Make them bright and colorful, and leafy and green. € Seeds and nuts. Walnuts, sesame seeds and almonds all contain omega-3 fats that reduce in”ammation. € Fruit and berries. Blueberries, pineapple, raspberries, cherries, strawberries and apples are all examples of fruits that may help reduce in”ammation within the body. € Turmeric and other herbs and spices. Turmeric, ginger, garlic, basil, oregano „ take your pick because all of those herbs and spices are very, very high in nutrients and “ght in”ammation. Try chopping a bunch of herbs and combining with garlic and olive oil for an anti-in”ammatory meat marinade. € Chocolate. Every once in awhile some good chocolate is a great thing to eat. Im talking about chocolate thats at least 70 percent pure cocoa and no more than one ounce at a time. Make sure its organic. € Green Tea. Whether its hot or cold, green tea sort of acts like a liquid vegetable, putting up an in”ammatory “ght within your body. And please make sure that tea is organic. Now that you know what foods you should eat to reduce that in”ammation, heres what you should avoid. The top foods to avoid in order to reduce in”ammation: € Margarine and other trans fats € White ”our € Sugar € Deep fried foods € Excessive alcohol Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author and the creator of SavingDinner.com, the original menu planning website, bringing families back to the dinner table for over 15 years.7 foods to lower inflammation in your body Name: Rebekah BeckyŽ Fero Q: Occupation: A: Certi“ed Financial Planner/ Private Wealth Manager Q: How many years in Charlotte / Sarasota County: A: 32 years in Charlotte Q: Hobbies: A: Fishing, reading and skiing Q: What do you like best about your job: A: Learning about my clients lives, their passions what drives them.

Following Chicos FAS in the top 10: Etsy, H&M Group, Kering, Best Buy, LOreal, Diageo, Target, Gap Inc. and Prada Group. The bottom 10 is anchored by Icahn Enterprises, owned by Carl Icahn, the President Trump advisor who resigned recently just as allegations of ethical wrongdoing were being raised. Many women have questioned Trump and his inner circle on issues regarding females. Icahn, with no women in any of his managementrelated or board positions, is followed by Nissan Motor Corp., Nintendo, Kia Motors, Energy Transfer Equity, Plains GP Holdings, Samsung Electronics, Toyota, Newell Brands and Panasonic. Despite the strides women have made, stereotypes persist and gender equality is slow coming,Ž according to a 24/7 Wall St. statement. As of 2016, a woman earns just above 80 cents for every dollar a man receives ƒ The gender gap „ pay and representation „ tends to be even more pronounced in senior leadership positions at large companies.Ž To identify companies with the most and least female leadership, 24/7 Wall St. examined data from research “rm LedBetter. Craig Heller, an adjunct professor at Hodges University, has a doctorate in higher education and womens studies and has taught for more than 30 years. In one sense it symbolizes some sense of progress, but on the other hand it is just a number,Ž he said of those businesses atop the list. It doesnt really re”ect upon societys ability to see women as having equal opportunity.Ž A greater issue, Heller said, is whether women „ those at the executive level, in this case „ are making as much money as men in similar positions. How is their ability to move laterally between corporations?Ž he pondered. Would we “nd some of these women are stuck in companies that try to promote women?Ž The Wall Street Journal reported last year that female chief executives at some of the largest U.S. companies repeatedly outearn their male counterparts. In 2016, 21 female CEOs received a median compensation package of $13.8 million, compared with the $11.6 million median for 382 male chiefs, according to a Journal analysis of Standard & Poors 500 leaders. Thats a small sample size of female chief executives, critics might say, and does not re”ect executive salaries at lower levels. Broader earned a base salary of $1.1 million last year, but her total compensation package totaled nearly $9.5 million. Chicos FAS is No. 814 on this years Fortune list of the top companies. The good news for those at the top of the list as it relates to gender equity? These companies are paying particular attention,Ž Heller said. Heller thought about the issue more broadly and the progress he hopes to see in the workplace in the years ago to come, whether its more ”exible scheduling, day care (Chicos FAS offers day care at its corporate site), or maternal and paternal leave. What does it really mean when it comes to the ability to grow the level of respect women receive in the workplace?Ž Heller said. Id like to see the issue of pay equity taken seriously. Id like to see a cultural shift in which we look at employees more as individuals, so were looking at particular needs.Ž The Sun contributed to this report.LEADERSHIPFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOSThis photo combination of images shows the 10 highest paid women CEOs in 2016, according to a study carried out by executive compensation data rm Equilar and The Associated Press.

Yet those gains have not translated into the U.S. corporate boardroom, where women held just 16.6 percent of seats in 2015, according to a Credit Suisse analysis of the worlds largest 3,400 or so companies. Thats up a little from the 12.7 percent “ve years earlier but still disappointingly low. As scholars of corporate governance, we felt the answer to this puzzle might require a bit of digging beyond this simple percentage. So we crunched the numbers on individual states over an 11-year period to see where women fared better in the boardroom and why. Our “ndings were startling but also suggest a solution.The case for parityThe ethical case for a government promoting or even mandating gender equality, whether in the classroom, of“ce or boardroom, seems fairly straightforward. Beyond that, research suggests that companies with more female directors achieve better “nancial results, are more socially responsible and are less likely to engage in wrongdoing such as fraud. While many countries in Europe have used quotas to get more women on corporate boards, in the United States, there is resistance to doing so. Instead, federal government agencies have focused on disclosure, which has had little impact. Under the U.S. Constitution, states have signi“cant power in setting their own policies. And while none have instituted a gender quota for corporate boards, some states have gone further than the federal government on a variety of policies that affect womens career advancement, such as workplace discrimination and family planning. We theorized that these differences might help explain the prevalence of women on boards in some states and not others.A wide range of representationTo “nd out, we examined the boardroom diversity of the 1,500 companies in the Standard & Poors 1500 index, which represents about 90 percent of total U.S. market capitalization. We focused on the period 2003 to 2014 using data provided by Governance Metrics International, which compiles governance information annually from companies proxy statements and public “lings. Nationally, our data showed that just 15.2 percent of S&P 1500 board seats were occupied by women in 2014, up modestly from 9.7 percent in 2003. One explanation for why our “gures show less representation than the Credit Suisse data cited earlier is that the largest corporations have done a better job promoting women, while the S&P 1500 includes medium-sized companies as well. This is a correlation also supported by our data. Our sample included companies headquartered in 49 states (none were in Wyoming). As some states only had a few companies listed in the index during the period and others had many, we controlled for the economic size of each state as well as several other factors, such as a companys size and state demographics. This allowed us to more fairly compare each states “gures and isolate potential explanations. Overall, the national trend of increasing representation persisted in the vast majority of states from 2003 to 2014, while four experienced slight declines. Not a single woman served on the board of the sole Alaskan company in the index during the period. Beyond that, the data showed wide variation from state to state. In 2014, the worst states for women on boards were Louisiana, Nebraska, New Hampshire and Alaska, all of which had less than 10 percent. Florida only has 14.35 percent. New Mexico boasted the most women on boards at 44 percent, followed by Vermont, Delaware, Iowa and Maine. Another way of looking at the data is to focus not just on basic representation but at what percentage of companies have three or more women in the boardroom. Research shows that this can constitute a critical mass that enables them to make a real difference by affecting a boards working style and dynamic and creating a more favorable environment for womens perspectives to be heard. By that measure, the data are a lot more discouraging. Only 11 states, such as Minnesota, Connecticut and Washington, had even a third of their companies meet this threshold. In 18 other states, including Louisiana, Tennessee and Virginia, less than 10 percent had at least three women on their boards. Florida was also on the low end with those states.Womens rightsWhat explains the differences? Our initial hypothesis was that state policies had something to do with it because existing research has found a link between national governmental policies and participation of women in leadership positions. So we examined whether states had gender-related policies in three general areas: reproductive rights, anti-discrimination and work-family balance. We then analyzed several databases to “nd out which states had these policies. We found that companies headquartered in states with policies that provided more protections for women than the federal government requires in terms of reproductive rights, such as public funding for abortion and laws against gender discrimination, tended to have a greater share of female directors on their boards. Interestingly, we didnt “nd a link with work-life balance policies such as better access to maternity leave. For example, states like Minnesota, Connecticut and Washington „ all of which have a greater level of female board representation than the Few women oversee US companies. Heres how to change thatBy YANNICK THAMS and BARI BENDELLSUFFOLK UNIVERSITY FILE PHOTOA recent study of data showed that 15.2percent of S&P 1500 board seats were occupied by women in 2014.COMPANIES | 3 adno=50534182 Where Shopping Makes Cents charlottecountychamber.org adno=50532903 adno=50532882

The Sun /Monday, April 16, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 15 3OUR TOWN TODAYS WOMAN national average over the 11-year period „ also had most of the policies we identi“ed. All three provide funding for abortions through Medicaid and have passed gender discrimination protections that are stronger than exist at the federal level. In contrast, states where relatively few women sat on corporate boards, such as Alabama, Colorado, Louisiana, Georgia, Nebraska, Virginia and Florida, tended to have weaker policies protecting women and their rights. Overall, we found a strong statistical link between these types of policies and female representation in the boardroom, which held even after controlling for alternative explanations, such as the political orientation of the state and cultural attitudes toward women based on surveys. To us, the point isnt that these policies in particular lead to more women on boards, but that they broadly represent a favorable cultural environment for women in the workplace. There were a few notable exceptions to our “ndings. California, for example, which has progressive policies in these areas, boasts few women on its boards, or about 14 percent in 2014. One possible explanation could be that older companies are more likely to have more women on their boards. A signi“cant number of California companies in the index were relatively young.Equity without quotasMaking it into the highest echelons of a corporation is very dif“cult and typically requires opportunity for training and access to social networks, both of which are jeopardized when, for example, women suffer harassment on the job or incur a motherhood penalty.Ž It is not surprising, for example, that female directors are signi“cantly more likely to be single and childless, compared with their male peers. European countries such as Iceland, Norway and France have become world leaders in female representation by instituting quotas. In 2017, women held more than 40 percent of the seats on the largest listed companies in all three countries, a signi“cant increase from a decade earlier. The good news is that our “ndings suggest that states „ as well as the federal government „ have policy options at their disposal short of establishing gender quotas to increase female representation in the boardroom. Siri Terjesen of American University contributed to this report.COMPANIESFROM PAGE 2When disaster strikes, it can change the fabric of a society „ often through the sheer loss of human life. The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami left 35,000 children without one or both parents in Indonesia alone. The Black Death killed more than 75 million people worldwide and more than a third of Europes population between 1347 and 1351. While disasters are by de“nition devastating, sometimes they can lead to changes that are a small silver lining. The 2004 tsunami ended a civil con”ict in Indonesia that had left 15,000 dead. The 14th centurys plague, probably the most deadly disaster in human history, set free many serfs in Europe, forced wages for laborers to rise, and caused a fundamental shift in the economy along with an increased standard of living for survivors. One hundred years ago, a powerful strain of the ”u swept the globe, infecting one third of the worlds population. The aftermath of this disaster, too, led to unexpected social changes, opening up new opportunities for women and in the process irreversibly transforming life in the United States. The virus disproportionately affected young men, which in combination with World War I, created a shortage of labor. This gap enabled women to play a new and indispensable role in the workforce during the crucial period just before the rati“cation of the 19th Amendment, which granted women suffrage in the United States two years later.Why did the flu affect men more than women?Known as the Spanish ”u, the 1918 great in”uenzaŽ left more than 50 million people dead, including around 670,000 in the United States. To put that in perspective, World War I, which concluded just as the ”u was at its worst in November 1918, killed around 17 million people „ a mere third of the fatalities caused by the ”u. More American soldiers died from the ”u than were killed in battle, and many of the deaths attributed to World War I were caused by a combination of the war and the ”u. The war provided near perfect conditions for the spread of ”u virus via the respiratory droplets exhaled by infected individuals. Military personnel „ predominantly young males „ spent months at a time in close quarters with thousands of other troops. This proximity, combined with the stress of war and the malnutrition that sometimes accompanied it, created weakened immune systems in soldiers and allowed the virus spread like wild“re. Overcrowding in training camps, trenches and hospitals created an ideal environment for the 1918 in”uenza strain to infect high numbers of people. In fact, the conditions of war helped the virus perfect itself through several waves of infection, each more deadly than the last. Many troops were doomed before they even reached Europe, contracting the ”u on the packed troop ships where a single infected soldier could spread the virus throughout. When soldiers returned to the U.S., they scattered to every state, bringing the ”u along with them. It was more than just male conscription in war, however, that led to a greater number of men who were infected and died from the ”u. Even at home, among those that were never involved in the war effort, the death rate for men exceeded that of women. Demographic studies show that nearly 175,000 more men died than women in 1918. In general, epidemics tend to kill more men than women. In disease outbreaks throughout history, as well as almost all of the worlds major famines, women have a longer life expectancy than men and often have greater survival rates. The exact reason why men tend to be more vulnerable to the ”u than women continues to elude researchers. The scof“ng modern term man ”uŽ refers to the perception that men are overly dramatic when they fall ill; But recent research suggests that there may be more to it than just exaggerated symptoms.Flu brought more women into the workforceThe severity of the epidemic in the U.S. was enough to temporarily shut down parts of the economy in 1918. In New England, coal deliveries were so severely affected that people, unable to keep their homes heated, froze to death at the height of winter. During the 1918 ”u outbreak, researchers estimate businesses in Little Rock, Arkansas, saw a decline of 40 to 70 percent. The worker shortage caused by the ”u and World War I opened access to the labor market for women, and in unprecedented numbers they took jobs outside the home. Following the conclusion of the war, the number of women in the workforce was 25 percent higher than it had been previously and by 1920 women made up 21 percent of all gainfully employed individuals in the country. While this gender boost is often ascribed to World War I alone, womens increased presence in the workforce would have been far less pronounced without the 1918 ”u. Women began to move into employment roles that were previously held exclusively by men, many of which were in manufacturing. They were even able to enter “elds from which they had been banned, such as the textile industry. As women “lled what had been typically male workplace roles, they also began to demand equal pay for their work. Gaining greater economic power, women began more actively advocating for various womens rights issues … including, but not limited to, the right to vote.How the flu helped change mindsIncreased participation in the workforce allowed many women to obtain social and “nancial independence. Leadership positions within the workforce could now be occupied by women, especially in the garment industry, but also in the military and police forces. The U.S. even got its “rst woman governor, when Nellie Taylor Ross took her oath of of“ce, in 1923, in Wyoming. An increased ability to make decisions in their personal and professional lives empowered many women and started to elevate their standing. With the war over and increased female participation in the labor force, politicians could not ignore the critical role that women played in American society. Even President Woodrow Wilson began to argue in 1918 that women were part of the American war effort and economy more broadly, and as such, should be afforded the right to vote. Outside of work, women also became more involved in community decision-making. Womens changing social role increased support for womens rights. In 1919, the National Federation of Business and Professional Womens Clubs was founded. The organization focused on eliminating sex discrimination in the workforce, making sure women got equal pay and creating a comprehensive equal rights amendment. The 1918 in”uenza pandemic was devastating. But the massive human tragedy had one silver lining: It helped elevate women in American society socially and “nancially, providing them more freedom, independence and a louder voice in the political arena.

Stewart Blum Health Correspondence Seattle, WA … A clinical study on a leading acid re”ux pill shows that its key in gredient relieves digestive symptoms while suppressing the in”ammation that contributes to premature aging in men and women. And, if consumer sales are any indication of a products effectiveness, this acid re”ux pill turned anti-aging phenomenon is nothing short of a miracle. Sold under the brand name AloeCure it was al ready backed by clinical data documenting its ability to provide all day and night relief from heartburn, acid re”ux, constipation, irritable bowel, gas, bloating, and more. But soon doctors started reporting some incredible resultsƒ With AloeCure my pa tients started reporting less joint pain, more energy, better sleep, stronger im mune systemsƒ even less stress and better skin, hair, and nailsŽ explains Dr. Liza Leal; a leading integrative health specialist and com pany spokesperson. AloeCure contains an active ingredient that helps improve digestion by act ing as a natural acid-buffer that imp roves the pH balance of your stomach. Scientists now believe that this acid imbalance is what contributes to painful in”ammation throughout the rest of the body. The daily allowance of AloeCure has shown to calm this in”ammation which is why AloeCure is so effective. Relieving other stressful symptoms related to GI health like pain, bloating, fatigue, cramping, consti pation, diarrhea, heartburn, and nausea. Now, backed with new clinical studies, AloeCure is being recommended by doctors everywhere to help improve digestion, calm painful in”ammation, soothe joint pain, and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles … helping patients to look and feel decades younger.FIX YOUR GUT & FIGHT INFLAMMATIONSince hitting the market, sales for AloeCure have taken off and there are some very good reasons why. To start, the clinical studies have been impres sive. Participants taking the active ingredient in AloeCure saw a stunning 100% imp rovement in di gestive symptoms, which includes fast and lasting relief from re”ux. Users also experienced higher energy levels and endurance, relief from chronic discomfort and better sleep. Some even reported healthier looking skin, hair, and nails. A healthy gut is the key to a reducing swelling and in”ammation that can wreak havoc on the hu man body. Doctors say this is why AloeCure works on so many aspects of your health. AloeCures active ingre dient is made from the healing compound found in Aloe vera. It is both safe and healthy. There are also no known side effects. Scientists believe that it helps imp rove digestive and immune health by act ing as a natural acid-buffer that imp roves the pH balance of your stomach. Research has shown that this acid imbalance contributes to painful in”ammation throughout your entire body and is why AloeCure seems to be so effective.EXCITING RESULTS FROM PATIENTSTo date over 5 million bottles of AloeCure have been sold, and the community seeking non-pharma therapy for their GI health continues to grow. According to Dr. Leal, her patients are absolutely thrilled with their results and are often shocked by how fast it works. For the “rst time in years, they are free from concerns about their diges tion and almost every other aspect of their health,Ž says Dr. Leal, and I recommend it to everyone who wants to imp rove GI health without resorting to drugs, surgery, or OTC medications.Ž I was always in indigestion hell. Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. Nothing worked. Dr. Leal recommended I try AloeCure And something remarkable happenedƒ Not only were all the issues I had with my stomach gone completely gone … but I felt less joint pain and I was able to actually sleep through the night.Ž With so much positive feedback, its easy to see why the community of believers is growing and sales for the new pill are soaring. THE SCIENCE BEHIND ALOECUREAloeCure is a pill thats taken just once daily. The pill is small. Easy to swallow. There are no harmful side effects and it does not require a prescription. The active ingredient is a rare Aloe Vera component known as acemannan. Made from of 100% or ganic Aloe Vera, AloeCure uses a proprietary process that results in the highest quality, most bio-available levels of acemannan known to exist. According to Dr. Leal and several of her colleagues, improving the pH balance of your stomach and restoring gut health is the key to revitalizing your entire body. When your digestive sys tem isnt healthy, it causes unwanted stress on your immune system, which results in in”ammation in the rest of the body. The recommended daily allowance of acemannan in AloeCure has been proven to support digestive health, and calm painful in”ammation without side effects or drugs. This would explain why so many users are experi encing impressive results so quickly. REVITALIZE YOUR ENTIRE BODYWith daily use, AloeCure helps users look and feel decades younger and de fend against some of the painful in”ammation that accompanies aging and can make life hard. By buffering stomach acid and restoring gut health, AloeCure calms painful in”ammation and will help improve digestionƒ soothe aching jointsƒ reduce the appearance of winkles and help restore hair and nails ƒ manage cholesterol and oxidative stressƒ and improve sleep and brain functionƒ without side effects or expense.

Only one-fiftieth of an inch in length, when working in groups, this plant pest mite sucks the sap from leaves causing decline and damage. You can thwart their plans however, with some simple management techniques. The two-spotted spider mite is a spider relative and not an insect. As such, it has eight legs, is more or less oval in shape, and translucent orange to greenish-yellow in color. There are also two distinct dark spots visible on its body giving this arachnid its classic name. Amazingly, these spots are really just stored waste kept within the mites translucent body. The life cycle goes from egg to larva, and from larvae to nymph to adult in no more 20 days, and adults can live up to a month. Two-spotted spider mites do best in dry, hot weather, so be on the lookout now. As mentioned earlier, two-spotted spider mites use needle-like mouthparts to puncture and suck plant juices from the undersides of leaves. One of the telltale signs of an infestation of mites is an abundant accumulation of very fine webbing. As these are spider relatives, they can produce and use strands of silk. As the population of spider mites increases, the infested foliage will turn yellow, gray or have a bronzed cast. Multiple feeding sites even give the leaf tissue a bleached appearance. What types of plants are likely to be infested with spider mites? Twospotted spider mites are known to attack over two-hundred plants. Locally, I have seen them on ornamentals such as roses, viburnums, and red cedars. They also are common on tomatoes, eggplants and cucumbers. Beyond the feeding damage called stippling and the webbing, you can monitor for mites by taking a white sheet of paper and placing it under the suspected infested branch or leaf. Then, tap the infested plant part. The mites will drop onto the paper where they can be detected. While not microscopic, they are more easily detected on the white background and you can actually see them scurrying around with the naked eye. Once detected, spider mites can be easily controlled with either insecticidal soaps or horticultural oils used as per label instructions and not in the heat of the day as leaves could be burned. Behind the scenes there are number of natural predators already present and working in your favor to suppress spider mites. These may include equally tiny protectors such as predatory mites, lady beetles, minute pirate bugs, predatory thrips and lacewing larvae. There are even reports that the ghost ant (a pest ant) is a predator of spider mites. The two-spotted spider mite is common, but easily detected and conveniently managed with both cultural and least-toxic techniques. Dont let spider mites get you down … knock them down first!

AP FILE PHOTOSIn this March 27, le photo, David Hernandez, left, Genevieve Peters, center, and Jennifer Martinez celebrate after the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to join the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of Californias sanctuary cities law (SB54) during their meeting in Santa Ana, Calif. In this March 27, le photo, a group of sanctuary state supporters gather outside the Orange County Board of Supervisors meeting in Santa Ana, Calif., as they prepare to discuss joining a DOJ lawsuit against the state of California. SANTA ANA, Calif. „ More local governments in California are resisting the states efforts to resist the Trump administrations immigration crackdown, and political experts see politics at play as Republicans try to “re up voters in a state where the GOP has grown weak. Since the Jeff Sessions-led Department of Justice sued California last month over its so-called sanctuary stateŽ law limiting police collaboration with immigration agents, at least a dozen local governments have voted to either join or support the lawsuit or for resolutions opposing the states position. Those include the Board of Supervisors in Orange County, which has more than 3 million people. More action is coming this week, with leaders in the Orange County city of Los Alamitos scheduled to vote Monday on a proposal for a local law to exempt the community of 12,000 from the state law. On Tuesday, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors is meeting to consider joining the Trump administration lawsuit. Immigration has been a hot topic across the country since President Donald Trump campaigned in 2016 on promises of tougher enforcement and a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. It has been a lightning rod issue in California far longer. The state passed a measure backed by Republican Gov. Pete Wilson in the 1990s to deny public health care and education to immigrants in the country illegally. It was later overturned but left a lingering resentment among the states growing Hispanic population.Opposition to immigrant sanctuary spreading in CaliforniaBy AMY TAXINASSOCIATED PRESS DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia „ Saudi Arabia used its perch as host of an annual gathering of Arab leaders on Sunday to push for a uni“ed stance against rival Iran as the regional powerhouses vie for the upper hand in wars in Syria and Yemen. Saudi King Salman told leaders from across the 22-member Arab League that Iran was to blame for instability and meddling in the region. He said Yemeni rebel Houthis, backed by Iran, had “red 116 missiles at the kingdom since Saudi Arabia went to war in Yemen three years ago to try and roll back Houthi gains there. The summit took place in the oil-rich eastern Saudi city of Dhahran, a location that may have been selected by the kingdom to avoid cross-border Houthi missile strikes that have targeted the capital, Riyadh, and southern border cities. While locked in proxy con”icts in Yemen and Syria, Saudi Arabia and Iran also back opposing groups in Lebanon, Bahrain and Iraq. The summit this year takes place after the U.S., Britain and France launched dozens of strikes early Saturday at sites they said were linked to Syrian chemical weapons program. President Bashar Assad and his close ally, Russia, have denied government forces ever used such weapons. Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul-Gheit said Assads government and international players trying to achieve their own strategic political goalsŽ bear responsibility for the collapse of that nation. Regional interference in Arab affairs Arab leaders meet to unify ranks with eye on Iran, JerusalemBy AYA BATRAWYASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his use of the phrase Mission AccomplishedŽ to describe a U.S.-led missile attack on Syrias chemical weapons program, even as his aides stressed continuing U.S. troop involvement and plans for new economic sanctions against Russia for enabling the regime of Bashar Assad. Stepping up the pressure on Syrias president, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley indicated the sanctions to be announced Monday would be aimed at sending a message to Russia, which she said has blocked six attempts by the U.N. Security Council to make it easier to investigate the use of chemical weapons. Everyone is going to feel it at this point,Ž Haley said, warning of consequences for Assads foreign allies. The international community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life,Ž she said. The fact he was making this more normal and that Russia was covering this up, all that has got to stop.Ž In an early-morning tweet, Trump said the strike was perfectly carried outŽ and that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term Mission Accomplished.Ž He added that he knew the media would seizeŽ on the phrase, but said it should be used often. It is such a great Military term, it should be brought back,Ž he wrote. Trump tweeted Mission AccomplishedŽ on Saturday after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles nearly unopposed by Syrian air defenses. While he declared success, the Pentagon said the pummeling of three chemical-related facilities left enough others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against civilians if it chooses.

My wife brings home an additional $2,000 each month. Should we base our emergency fund level on her income only, since mine is guaranteed? „ Lewis Dear Lewis, Your emergency fund shouldnt be based on income. I recommend folks have three to six months of household expenses set aside in an emergency fund. What would it take to operate your household for that length of time if one or both of your incomes disappeared? I dont anticipate your income stopping, Lewis. But income loss isnt the only thing youre guarding against with an emergency fund. Youre also guarding against things like an illness in the family, if the transmission in the car goes out, or your homes heating and cooling unit needs to be replaced. There are many more crises that can come upon a family other than a loss of income. I dont mind if you two lean toward the three-month side of expenses, since your income is pretty stable. But always remember, an emergency fund should contain three to six months of expenses, not income. Thank you for your service, sir. „Dave What happens to the debt?Dear Dave, Ive started your personal “nance course in high school, so Im asking this for the entire class. What happens to your debt if you pass away with no relatives or heirs to take responsibility for what you owed? „ Elizabeth Dear Elizabeth, In many cases it simply does not get paid. Relatives or heirs of the deceased are not responsible for a friend or family members debt, except in cases where they have been a co-signer on that debt. Lets say someones parents died, and at the time of their death they had $100,000 in debt in their names only. The only way that debt will be paid is if they owned enough stuff „ if they had enough in the way of assets „ to pay the debt. If they owned a $200,000 home, the house would have to be sold in order to pay the debts. Their estate would be the only thing standing good for the debt. If they owned nothing, and had no co-signers on any of the debt, the creditor would not get paid. The bank lost that money. Elizabeth, I hope that helped. Please tell your teacher I said thank you for leading the class! „Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored seven best-selling books, including The Total Money Makeover.

Follow Dave on the web at daveramsey.com and on Twitter at @DaveRamsey.Expenses, not incomeDave Ramsey Did you wake up in a panic realizing that today is April 15? Relax. Youve got until Tuesday to “le and pay your taxes without facing a penalty. April 15 falls on Sunday this year and Monday is Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington D.C. That gives taxpayers nationwide until April 17 to get the job done. Procrastinators can take some solace in knowing that as of Friday 40 million Americans hadnt “led their taxes, according to the IRS. Still, this is no time to dawdle; here are some tips for you last-minute “lers:How to fileThe IRS says that electronic “ling is the best way to avoid common mistakes. Thats because the software does the calculations, ”ags common errors and prompts taxpayers to provide missing information. Its quicker than dropping something in the mail. Plus, electronic “lers typically get their refund faster if due one. You can use any electronic “ling method you choose, but its worth noting that the IRS says about 70 percent of taxpayers are eligible to “le their tax return at no charge by using IRS Free File software. It can be accessed at the IRS website at IRS.gov.Take your timeYes, its crunch time but try not to rush. Lisa Greene-Lewis, CPA at TurboTax, said the most important tip for entering information is to take your time. One of the most common mistakes taxpayers make when rushing is gathering incorrect Social Security numbers for their children and spouses. Some even misspell their own names. Instead, carefully gather and enter your Social Security number, income information and banking information, if needed. It will take more time in the long-run to correct your mistakes and will delay any refunds.Seek helpTelephone calls to the IRS may have long wait times. Ditto if you try to go to somewhere in person, such as a tax assistance center. Instead, the IRS website should be your “rst stop for “nding answers to most basic tax questions. Popular tax software providers have their own solutions too. TurboTax now offers live on-demand video to communicate with a credentialed CPA or enrolled agent who can answer your questions.Ask for more timeIf you really cant get your tax return done, seek an extension. But getting an extension only gives you more time to “le your return „ you still have to pay what you owe now. The IRS allows you to request an automatic six-month extension to “le your return when you pay online. If you owe money and cannot pay immediately, you can ask the IRS for installment agreements when you “le your taxes. That will allow you to pay your tax debt over six years. Do better next timeThere are a number of reasons to try to “le your taxes sooner rather than later. If you are due a refund, the sooner you “le, the sooner youll get it. And “ling earlier in the season gives you time to more carefully prepare your returns and avoid errors. But most importantly, “ling early helps cut down on the risk for identity theft by essentially beating the criminals to the punch. Once your return is “led with the IRS, the information „ most notably your Social Security number „ is locked and cannot be used by anyone who might want to fraudulently claim a tax refund. And identity theft remains a common problem.Procrastinators rejoice: Theres still time to file taxesBy SARAH SKIDMORE SELLAP PERSONAL FINANCE WRITERIn a close race, Rampage takes No. 1 from A Quiet PlaceLOS ANGELES (AP) „ Dwayne Johnsons arcade game-inspired RampageŽ crept past last weeks top “lm A Quiet PlaceŽ to take the No. 1 spot on the box of“ce charts, but just barely.

The Sun /Monday, April 16, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 3 NATION BOSTON „ It was a day “lled with service and commemor ations in honor of victims and survivors of the deadly Boston Marathon bombings “ve ye ars ago. Boston began the “fth anniversary of the attacks Sunday with Mayor Marty Walsh and Gov. Charlie Baker laying wreaths early in the morning at the spots along downtown Boylston Street where two bombs killed three spectators and maimed more than 260 others April 15, 2013. Both addressed families and survivors at a private ceremony inside the Boston Public Library. On April 15, 2013, our city changed forever but over the last “ve years, we have reclaimed hope. We have reclaimed the “nish line and Boston has emerged with a new strength, a resilience rooted in love,Ž Walsh said. Jane and Henry Richard, siblings of the youngest victim Martin Richard, and members of the familys foundation, also spoke. Henry Richard urged those listening to follow Martins message to choose kindness and do more.Ž The familys foundation was founded in 2014 to connect young people with opportunities for volunteerism and community engagement. Victim Lu Lingzis uncle, Sherman Yee, was present at the ceremony and private gathering. He said, The family has been overwhelmed by love and support from all over the world.Ž He called Lingzi an extraordinary girlŽ who represented the youth that come to the U.S. from China to study. While she didnt realize her dreams, as her family we invest in the youths through our foundation to keep her memory going,Ž he said. The bombs also killed 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, of Arlington. Massachusetts Institute of Technology police of“cer Sean Collier was killed in the line of duty during a confrontation with bomber Tamerlan Tzarneav. Roxanne Simmonds was at commemorative ceremonies to honor her son, fallen Boston police of“cer Dennis Simmonds. Simmonds suffered a head injury on April 19, 2013, during a shootout with Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev as law enforcement closed in on them. He suffered a fatal brain aneurysm a year later assessed to be the result of his injuries from the explosive device. Roxanne Simmonds said DJŽ was brilliant and fearless „ he just loved Boston.Ž The youngest graduate of his class at Lasell College, Dennis Simmonds worked in Mattapan as an of“cer. It was important for him to be in a community with men and women who look like him,Ž his mother said. I ndividuals of color working hard to make sure their communities were safe.Ž She praised Walsh, saying that it was obvious how signi“cant the victims are to the mayor. Arreen Andrew, of Boston, said she was in the crowd across the stand when the “rst bomb went off in 2013. It was sheer panic,Ž she recalled. Just this sense of No, this cant happen to us.Ž Five years later, while the day is still a reminder of some painful memories, she said it has also become a day about the relationships that have since been formed and reformed and recreated our entire community.Ž At 2:49 p.m., a citywide moment of silence will be observed, and the bells of Old South Church will be rung to mark the moment “ve years ago when the “rst bomb exploded. Sunday is One Boston Day,Ž devoted to blood drives and acts of kindness. Security is tight for Mondays 122nd running of the iconic race.Boston marks 5 years since marathon attackBy VAISHNAVEE SHARMA and SARAH BETANCOURTASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSOn Sunday, Cristopher Nzenwa, of Boston, prays at the site of the rst explosion during the 2013 Boston Marathon.

HOUSTON „ Former “rst lady Barbara Bush is in failing healthŽ and wont seek additional medical treatment, a Bush family spokesman said Sunday. Following a recent series of hospitalizations, and after consulting her family and doctors, Mrs. Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care,Ž spokesman Jim McGrath said in a news release. McGrath did not elaborate as to the nature of Bushs health problems. She has been treated for decades for Graves disease, which is a thyroid condition. It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of her failing health, worrying not for herself „ thanks to her abiding faith „ but for others,Ž McGrath said. She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.Ž Bush is one of only two “rst ladies who was also the mother of a president. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams. She married George H.W. Bush in 1945. They had six children and have been married longer than any presidential couple in American history. Eight years after she and her husband left the White House, Mrs. Bush stood with her husband as their son George W. was sworn in as president. Shes known for her white hair and her triple-strand fake pearl necklace. Her brown hair began to gray in the 1950s, while her 3-year-old daughter Pauline, known to her family as Robin, underwent treatment for leukemia and eventually died in October 1953. She later said dyed hair didnt look good on her and credited the color to the publics perception of her as everybodys grandmother.Ž Her pearls sparked a national fashion trend when she wore them to her husbands inauguration in 1989. The pearls became synonymous with Bush, who later said she selected them to hide the wrinkles in her neck. The candid admission only bolstered her common-sense and down-to-earth public image. Her 94-year-old husband also has had health issues in recent years. In April 2017, the nations 41st president was hospitalized in Houston for two weeks for a mild case of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis. He was hospitalized months earlier, also for pneumonia, spent time in 2015 at a hospital in Maine, where he and his wife have a summer home in Kennebunkport, after falling and breaking a bone in his neck. In Houston in December 2014, he was treated for shortness of breath and spent Christmas 2012 in intensive care for a bronchitis-related cough and other issues. Bush, who served as president from 1989 to 1993, has a form of Parkinsons disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility. He also served as a congressman, CIA director and Ronald Reagans vice president. Barbara Pierce Bush was born in Rye, New York. Her father was the publisher of McCalls and Redbook magazines. She married at age 19 while George Bush was a young naval aviator. After World War II, the Bushes moved to Texas where he went into the oil business. Along with her memoirs, shes the author of C. Freds StoryŽ and Millies Book,Ž based on the lives of her dogs. Proceeds from the books bene“ted adult and family literacy programs. The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy began during her White House years with the goal of improving the lives of disadvantaged Americans by boosting literacy among parents and their children. The foundation partners with local programs and had awarded more than $40 million to create or expand more than 1,500 literacy programs nationwide.Spokesman: Former first lady Barbara Bush in failing healthBy MICHAEL GRACZYKASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn a Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013, le photo, former rst lady Barbara Bush listens to a patients question during a visit to the Barbara Bush Childrens Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. GREENWICH TOWNSHIP, N.J. „ A red tide is heading for thousands of acres of oyster beds in New Jerseys Delaware Bay. But unlike the harmful algae blooms of the same name, this red tide is likely to bring good news for the shell“sh: Its a dye designed to check if pollution levels have decreased enough to reopen the oyster beds for harvesting and human consumption. Over the last few days, New Jersey and federal environmental of“cials dumped red dye into a creek that empties into the northern Delaware Bay. The creek is a known source of bacterial pollution from numerous sources, including birds and animals, and the idea was to see if the water is now clean enough to reopen thousands of acres of nearby oyster beds that have been off-limits for years due to contamination. Bob Schuster, bureau chief of marine water monitoring with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, said water entering the bay from the Delaware River has improved in quality due to numerous water treatment facility upgrades and pollution control projects in recent years. The dye is a stand-in for pollution sources: If little or no dye makes it to the oyster beds, that means the shell“sh are not experiencing as much pollution as they once were, and could be safe for consumption. Data from the testing will be collected and analyzed over the next few weeks. Were really optimistic about this,Ž Schuster said. Were looking to see how far it goes, and in what concentrations. That will help us re-draw the lines, so we can know which areas to open up. We feel we can get a big por tion of that area upgraded.Ž The stakes are high. Shell“sh constitute an $800 million a year industry in New Jersey, one that is primed for growth. There are 720,000 acres of shell“sh beds statewide, 78 percent of which are approved for harvesting, Schuster said. The testing could lead to the reopening of as much as 80 percent of a 5,000acre tract of oyster beds. That is great news,Ž said Tim Dillingham, executive director of the American Littoral Society, a coastal conservation group. Were always happy to see improvements in water quality, and particularly happy to see more oysters made available to the watermen whose livelihoods depend on them. Oysters are a keystone species; they “lter water, help improve the water quality of the bay and create jobs for people and communities along the bay shore.Ž A single oyster can “lter 50 gallons of water a day, making them ideal natural allies in the “ght to clean up polluted waterways. Scientists with the DEP and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration released a non-toxic red dye into Stow Creek, which ”ows into the northern bay, not far from the Salem nuclear power plant. The dye ”owed out into the bay, where boats trailing track ing devices called ”uorimeters measured the dye in concentrations that were too small for the naked eye to see. Meredith Comi, oyster restoration director with the NY/NJ Baykeeper group, said the dye testing is a good way to assess current pollution levels, Its a common way of looking at how particles are distributed in the water. I think its great that they are looking to see if water quality is improving and I “nd it encouraging.Ž After the data is analyzed, the DEP will decide which, if any, additional shell“sh beds can be reopened. Then the regulatory process of implementing that decision begins, which can take several months.This red tide might be good news for New Jersey oyster bedsBy WAYNE PARRYASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOIn this April 11 photo, scientists release red dye into a creek leading into Delaware Bay in Greenwich Township, N.J.

Today in history On April 16, 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his Letter from Birmingham JailŽ in which the civil rights activist responded to a group of local clergymen who had criticized him for leading street protests; King defended his tactics, writing, Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.Ž On this date In 1912 American aviator Harriet Quimby became the first woman to fly across the English Channel, leaving Dover, England, and arriving near Calais, France, in 59 minutes. In 1968 American author Edna Ferber, whose novels included So Big,Ž Show BoatŽ and Giant,Ž and who collaborated with George S. Kaufman on such plays as Stage DoorŽ and Dinner at Eight,Ž died in New York at age 82. In 1972 Apollo 16 blasted off on a voyage to the moon with astronauts John W. Young, Charles M. Duke Jr. and Ken Mattingly on board. In 1986 dispelling rumors he was dead, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi appeared on television to condemn the U.S. raid on his country and to say that Libyans were ready to dieŽ defending their nation. In 1996 Britains Prince Andrew and his wife, Sarah, the Duchess of York, announced they were in the process of divorcing. In 2007 in one of Americas worst school attacks, a Korean-born college senior killed 32 people on the campus of Virginia Tech before taking his own life.

(AP) „ African warthogs, not surprisingly, are not native to Florida so state wildlife officials are investigating how one wound up loose in a suburban neighborhood. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation officials told TCPalm. com that it captured the tusky animal last month after a five-day search about 50 miles north of West Palm Beach. That included failed attempts to capture it with traps and a rope snare before a wildlife officer spotted it and tackled it. The newspaper reports the officer got some cuts on his legs in the process. Under state law, owning a warthog requires a permit but no one in that area had one. Officials said the beast is tame and is friendly when offered food.ODD NEWS African warthog found wandering through Florida neighborhoodIn recent years, California Republicans have taken a less strident approach to immigration in a state where one in four people are foreign-born. But the Trump administration lawsuit has energized many in a party that has been render ed nearly irrelevant at the state level, where Democrats control every key of“ce. When the attorney general of the United States decides to take a “rm position against it, I think that gave a signal to a lot of us that, Hey, California is on the wrong side of this thing,Ž said Fred Whitaker, chairman of the Republican Party in Orange County. He also is a councilman in the city of Orange who proposed a local resolution on the issue that passed last week. Raphael Sonenshein, executive director of the Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs at California State University, Los Angeles, said its not surprising Republicans are galvanizing over immigration. Politics is very much about emotions, especially in midterms,Ž he said. I think it was only a matter of time when peo ple went back to the issue that actually hits the nerve in the Republican base these days more than any other.Ž Under Democratic leadership, California has enacted a series of laws in recent years aimed at helping immigrants, including issuing drivers licenses regardless of legal status and assisting with tuition at state universities. After Trump was elected, lawmakers passed the measure to limit police collaboration with federal immigration agents. Immigrant and civil rights advocates applauded the measure, known as SB54, as a way to encourage immigrants to report crime to police without fearing deportation. Critics said it would make it too hard for federal agents to “nd and deport ex-convicts who are a danger to communities. Most of the local governments siding with the Trump administration are in Orange County, an area once considered a GOP stronghold but that voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. But its starting to spread. Escondido in neighboring San Diego County has voted to support the federal lawsuit and last week the small city of Ripon in the states Central Valley did the same. In many cases, meetings on the issue have drawn boisterous crowds. Anti-illegal immigration activists have traveled from city to city to attend, heightening tensions with those who want their communities to support immigrantfriendly policies or stay out of the fray. In response to the controversy, some local governments have taken the oppo site approach. Leaders in Santa Ana, an Orange County city home to about 330,000 residents, voted to support Califor nia in the lawsuit. Some of the supervisors pushing the issue in Orange and San Diego counties are Republicans running for Congress and they may see this as a way to generate needed enthusiasm, said Louis DeSipio, a political science professor at the University of California, Irvine. The mobilization that could come from introducing immigration debates into county political races may be a critical element in a year like 2018 when Democrats will likely be more mobilized than Republicans,Ž he said.SANCTUARYFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOSIn this March 7, le photo, U.S. Attorney General Je Sessions addresses the California Peace Ocers Association at the 26th Annual Law Enforcement Legislative Day in Sacramento, Calif.similar claim associated with President George W. Bush following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a Mission AccomplishedŽ banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down U.S. forces for years. On Sunday, Haley made clear the United States wont be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying U.S. involvement there is not done.Ž Haley said the three U.S. goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm U.S. national interests; that the Islamic State group is defeated; and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing. Were not going to leave until we know weve accomplished those things,Ž she said. Haley said the joint military strike put a heavy blow into their chemical weapons program, setting them back yearsŽ and reiterated that if Assad uses poison gas again, the United States is locked and loaded.Ž The nighttime assault was carefully limited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct con”ict with Russia in Syria, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance. The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning. The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, Before we took action, the United States communicated withŽ Russia to reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties.Ž Russia has military forces, including air defenses, in several areas of Syria to support Assad in his long war against anti-government rebels. Russia and Iran called the use of force by the United States and its French and British allies a military crimeŽ and act of aggression.Ž The U.N. Security Council met to debate the strikes, but rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of the aggressionŽ by the three Western allies.TRUMPFROM PAGE 1 has reached an unprecedented degree. And “rst of these is the Iranian interference, the aim of which is not for the well-being of the Arabs or their interests,Ž he said. The Saudi monarch made no reference to Syria in his remarks before Arab leaders amid divisions within the region-wide body over support for the U.S.led airstrikes on Syria. The kingdom, as well as Bahrain and Qatar, have issued statements backing Saturdays strikes on military targets in Syria. More wary of the widening con”ict are countries like Egypt, Iraq and Lebanon. Assad was not invited to the summit, though most heads of state from across the Middle East and North Africa attended the Arab League meeting, including Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes in Darfur. Saudi tensions with neighboring Qatar were also on display at the summit. Qatars emir was not in attendance, instead dispatching his countrys Arab League representative to the meeting. While the Qatari ”ag was erected alongside other member-state ”ags on the streets of Dhahran, the countrys representative did not appear in a group photo of the top delegates in attendance. Tensions erupted nearly a year ago when Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed ties with Qatar and imposed a de facto blockade on the small Gulf state. The four accuse Qatar of sponsoring terrorism because of its support for Islamist opposition groups in the region and its warm relations with Iran. Qatar denies the allegations and says the moves attempt to undermine its sovereignty. The standoff with Qatar, however, did not feature in summit deliberations. Instead, Arab heads of state stressed unity and unwavering support for Palestinians. King Salman reiterated Saudi Arabias rejection of the U.S. decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The king also announced a $150 million donation to the religious administration that oversees Jerusalems Al-Aqsa mosque„ one of Islams holiest sites. He announced another $50 million for programs run by the U.N. relief agency for Palestinians after the U.S. slashed its aid. The strongest criticism of the Trump administration came from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who slammed U.S. decisions on Jerusalem and its decision to withhold millions of dollars to the U.N. agency that provides health care, education and social services to an estimated 5 million Palestinians. The decisions have made the United States a party to the con”ict and not a neutral mediator,Ž he said. Meanwhile, AboulGheit lamented a lack of consensus among Arab states on regional security, adding that joint action is necessary in “ghting these crises.Ž The crises burning in some corners of the Arab world today... cast a shadow over the safety and security over the entire region,Ž Aboul-Gheit said. These take a toll on the national security of all of us.ŽARABFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOBillboards with photos of Saudi King Salman and Arabic that reads, welcomeŽ line the road to the convention center where Arab leaders are meeting for an Arab summit meeting in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, Sunday.

The Sun /Monday, April 16, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 5 MARMADUKE By Brad Anderson Cryptoquip 2011 by King Features Syndicate Challenger Saturdays Challenger Answers DEAR DR. ROACH: After decades of feeling fatigued, I started working with a naturopathic doctor. She ordered a saliva test for my total cortisol output, which was normal at 27. She also ordered a full thyroid panel (also normal) and a test for Epstein-Barr virus antibodies. My levels are: EBV IgM is less than 36, and EBV Nuclear Antigen, IgG is greater than 600 (high). She suggested that my DHEA was low, and put me on a 10 mg-per-day DHEA supplement. She also suggested that you sometimes can become reactive to high levels of EBV antigens, and put me on a number of supplements to help boost my immune system, including monolaurin. I recently saw my GP for a yearly physical. She said there's no indication that DHEA supplements are helpful, and suggested that the two ndings of elevated EBV levels just mean that if I get mono again, my body will be better able to ght it o. Should the EBV levels concern me? What are your thoughts on taking supplements such as DHEA or other immune boosters? „ F.C. ANSWER: Let me answer the question about Epstein-Barr virus, the major cause of infectious mononucleosis, rst. IgM is the antibody the body produces when it is rst confronted with an infection. You will have high levels of IgM in the early, active phase of infection. I agree with your general physician that there is no evidence of ongoing EBV infection. IgG provides long-term immunity. Your high IgG demonstrates a robust immune system in no need of boosting. As far as the hormone testing, saliva testing for cortisol (also called cortisone) is more accurate than it used to be, but it still isn't as accurate as blood testing. You have a normal level. I don't see DHEA levels measured, but DHEA „ an androgen itself and a precursor to steroid hormones, including testosterone and estrogen „ may be of value in people with adrenal insuciency. That's the inability of the adrenal gland to make all the cortisone it should. Your normal cortisone level in saliva makes adrenal insuciency unlikely. DHEA has not been shown to be of value in healthy people. It does not boost the immune system, nor does your immune system appear to need boosting. I can't say why you have suffered decades of feeling fatigued. There are many possibilities, and often, doctors are unable to make a diagnosis. I understand why you sought an alternative provider. DEAR DR. ROACH: I note an increasing tendency for physicians to have both "Dr." in front of their name, and "M.D." after. I understand that the prex "Dr." is ambiguous, but using both seems excessive. Is there any standard? „ Dr. K.A.W. ANSWER: Etiquette experts note that for professional purposes, it should be Jane Smith, M.D., whereas for social correspondence, it would be Dr. Jane Smith. "Dr. Jane Smith, M.D." is indeed redundant. Retired physicians continue to use their title. In this column, however, you will see medical professionals referred to as "Dr. Jane Smith," with their specialty noted if relevant, as newspapers follow the stylebook of The Associated Press. I want to note in passing that when a patient calls me "Dr. Roach," I always address him as "Mr. Smith," not "John," unless I am specically invited to do so. It is a basic sign of respect. I nd it frustrating when I hear physicians addressing a person 30 years their senior by their rst name when they do not have a close relationship.DEAR ABBY: My husband's brother split from his wife, "Charlotte," ve years ago and now works and lives in another country. The brothers are still quite close. His school-age daughters live nearby and are close to their cousins, our daughters. Charlotte's latest boyfriend has started insisting on hanging out with my husband and trying to "bond" with him. He is also j umping with both feet into the role of stepfather, especially with the younger daughter, who has just returned after living with her father for the last seven months. It feels awkward and weird, but we are too polite to say anything to him or Charlotte because we're afraid she'll restrict us from seeing our nieces. What is your advice? „ Anxious In Australia DEAR ANXIOUS: Not knowing the terms of your brother-in-law's divorce, my advice is to consider that Charlotte has been with this man for a year and a half. He may be trying to form a relationship with your husband because he wants to bond with "the relatives." Your husband doesn't have to be best friends with him, but he should keep the relationship cordial „ not only for the nieces, but also so his brother can stay informed. DEAR ABBY: I have an addiction to vitamin gummies. They say to eat only two a day, but I eat almost half a container a day. They're SOOO good. This has been a problem for ve years. What should I do? Do I contact my doctor? „ Loves Yummy Gummies In Pennsylvania DEAR LOVES: Your vitamins may taste like candy, but they are NOT candy. It is important that you discuss this with your doctor. The least of your troubles could be that your college friends make fun of you. What you have been doing is dangerous because it can cause unsafe levels of vitamin A, vitamin E and minerals like iron to reach toxic levels in your system. Dear Readers: Today's SOUND OFF is about waiting even though you have an appointment: "Dear Heloise: Since when is it OK to have an appointment at 10 a.m. and not get in until 11:30 a.m.? There are no emergencies for these people; they just seem to be overbooking. How do your readers feel about this?" „ Liz V. in San Antonio I have friends who'll wait no more than 15 minutes at an appointment, then leave. Readers, what do you do? „ Heloise Dear Heloise: After reading Rita's idea about a reward message for returning a lost cellphone, I thought of another idea: I downloaded a free doodle app to my phone and wrote on my screen photo: "If found call (I put in my husband's phone number). Reward for return of phone." He or she will have my information without unlocking my phone. „ An Avid Reader, The Villages, Fla.What is the real message from Epstein-Barr antibodies? With dad away, boyfriend tries a hand at parenting Past the appointed timeHints from Heloise Dr. Roach Dear Abby

You have the sneaking suspicion that like most people, youre letting a petty fear or belief keep you stuck in a situation. You wont know specically what it is, though, until you break out and get a dierent perspective. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Emotions will involve labor today. Its a labor to feel them and a labor to express them, but the result of expressing them will be... you guessed it. All of this is worth it „ and so much better than not feeling. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People have dierent reactions to things they dont understand. Some get angry. Some get curious. Some get busy. And what about you? Youll nd out today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Easy environments dont grow strong trees or strong people. Its as though the wind and weather (emotional, spiritual or actual) force out deeper roots. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe it doesnt make sense to resent someone who is just being himself or herself. Its as silly as endeavoring to hold up the walls in your home, which have been standing on their own for years. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the most important aspects of success is actually the part in which you do hardly anything. Without that rest and recovery party, you wont be as sharp and creative as you can be. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).

When a magnet is heated up to a certain temperature, it loses its magnetism. The same is true of magnetic qualities in people. The same ones that draw you in can get so intense that they burn out your interest. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). With your personality, you should nd todays cautionary list rather easy to bypass. Avoid an excess of sugar, the tendency to moralize, giving an amateur diagnosis, over-helping and risks taken just to show o. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because mistakes made in communication can fundamentally impact a persons psyche, youll try to understand and to be understandable. Youll hear past what people say and into what they mean. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though it will feel as if you are spending your entire day on the needs of others, some of your own core psychological needs (love, happiness and belonging) are well-served through your eorts. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (April 16). A minimalist approach will turn complexities of your life into sources of elegance and eciency.

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Monday, April 16, 2018 WORLD ALONG THE ISRAELGAZA BORDER „ The ”areup of deadly violence in Gaza is of a new kind, even in the inventive annals of Mideast con”icts: Israeli soldiers shooting at Palestinian demonstrators burning tires and hurling “rebombs across what looks like an international border, in”icting casualties while claiming concerns of a mass breach of the barrier. But viewed another way, its just the latest re”ection of basic facts on the ground: the situation for the 2 million people of Gaza is extraordinarily harsh and dif“cult to resolve. Its not surprising so many would risk death by converging on the border fence, which has now happened three Fridays in a row, with dozens killed and hundreds injured. By and large the people of Gaza „ over twothirds of them descended from refugees from what is now Israel „ cannot leave th eir tiny strip of arid land along the Mediterranean coast. Anger toward Israel runs deep, yet dependence is great. Israel blocks Gazans to the north and east, controlling who and what goes in and out. It blockades their waters to the west and prevents construction of sea and airports, with Egypt completing the blockade to the south. Israels argument is that Hamas, the militant group that controls Gaza, will use materials that come into the strip for building rockets, making bombs and digging attack tunnels. The fear is well-founded. Israel also severely restricts Gazans leaving the territory in a policy it defends on security grounds, but which often looks punitive. Every exit, even to cross Israel en route to Jordan and beyond for medical, acade mic, professional or personal purposes, requires the approval of Israel „ or Egypt, where the anti-Islamist government also deeply distrusts Hamas. Israel and the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority, expelled by Hamas from Gaza in 2007, largely control power supplies. There are just a few hours of electricity a day. Hamas remains committed to con”ict with Israel, and attempts to pressure the population against Hamas are questionable. Gazans simply dont have the means to overthrow the wellarmed group, even if they so wanted. Meanwhile, half the strips workforce is unemployed. Much of the vast destruction from the last war with Israel, in 2014, still has not been rebuilt. Public entertainment is almost nonexistent and alcohol, in the name of Islam, is banned. Adding insult to injury, the Palestinians do not have a currency. The few bills of cash in Gazan pockets are Israeli shekels emblazoned with the likenesses of Jewish religious and Zionist political “gures. Hamas says the border protests will continue through May 15, the anniversary of Israels founding and the nabkaŽ (catastrophe) for the Palestinians „ a day of mourning to mark the mass displacement of hundreds of thousands of people who ”ed or were expelled from their homes during the war surrounding Israels creation. It has signaled it may attempt a mass border breach, just as Israel fears. With Israel digging in its heels, and only muted debate in Israel over the high casualty count, bloodshed is likely to continue.Gaza flare-up driven by deep misery in stripBy JOSEF FEDERMAN and DAN PERRYASSOCIATED PRESS AP ANALYSIS: AP FILE PHOTOSIn this Friday, April 6, le photo, Palestinian protesters run for cover from tear gas red by Israeli soldiers during clashes with Israeli troops at the Gazas border with Israel near Khan Younis.

SEOUL, South Korea „ If President Donald Trump presses Kim Jong Un to give up his nuclear arsenal when they meet, hell be asking the North Korean leader to surrender more than a half centurys labor. North Korea has as many as 60 nuclear weapons, an achievement spanning three generations of Kims. Theyve repeatedly chosen the bomb as the best guarantee of survival despite decades of negotiations, international sanctions and threats of war. Nuclear weapons have also become central to the regimes identity „ and its propaganda. North Koreas status as a nuclear stateŽ is enshrined in its constitution, and Kim recently built monuments to commemorate last years tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S. That history is why arms-control experts urge caution as Kim expresses a willingness to discuss denuclearizationŽ during a summit with Trump in May or June. Giving up nuclear weapons is more than just a tactical choice: It would signal a fundamental change in how one of the worlds longest-ruling dynasties maintains power. Without the bomb, North Korea is Albania,Ž said Ralph Cossa, president of the Center for Strategic and International Studies Paci“c Forum. No one would take it seriously. It could still threaten Seoul, but certainly not much beyond the peninsula.Ž Here are some key moments in North Koreas nuclear quest. € 1950s: U.S. nuclear weapons arrive. The threat of nuclear war loomed over the Korean Peninsula from the con”icts start in 1950, “ve years after U.S. subdued neighboring Japan with a two atomic attacks. While the 1953 armistice ended hostilities, President Dwight D. Eisenhower later deployed nuclear weapons to South Korea. Kim Il Sung, North Koreas founder, sought a nuclear weapon from the Soviet Union. € 1960s: Soviet help. Eisenhowers move fueled a regional scramble for nuclear technology, with the superpowers aiding less-developed states. Soviet physicists and engineers helped Kim Il Sung build the Yongbyon Nuclear Research Center in the 1960s, which would produce the “ssile material for North Koreas “rst bomb tests decades later. € 1970s: Self-reliance. A con”uence of events „ severe drought, surging oil prices and U.S.-Soviet nonproliferation talks „ encouraged Kim Il Sung to accelerate domestic reactor development in the 1970s. The power plants “t with his guiding philosophy of Juche „ often translated as self-relianceŽ „ as sources of both electricity and waste that could be processed into weapons-grade plutonium. € 1980s: Peace hopes. North Korea raised hopes that it may abandon nuclear weapons after the Soviets convinced it to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1985. Those expectations soon faded after U.S. intelligence analysts viewing satellite photos of the expanded Yongbyon complex concluded that Kim Il Sung was in the early stages of building a bomb. € 1990s: U.S. nuclear weapons leave. President George H.W. Bush recalled nuclear weapons from South Korea and other sites as the Cold War ended, creating a new opportunity for talks. Bill Clintons administration signed an agreement with North Korea in 1994 under which Pyongyang would freeze work on its nuclear weapons program in return for reactors that couldnt be used for proliferation. The deal broke down after the regime launched a missile over Japan in 1998 (North Korea says it carried a satellite). € 2000s: Axis of Evil.Ž Bush put North Korea alongside Iran and Iraq in his Axis of Evil.Ž Kim Jong Il the founders son eventually agreed to abandon all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs.Ž But talks on implementing the deal broke down and Pyongyang resumed weapons tests, detonating its “rst atomic bomb in 2006. Kim Jong Il walked away from talks for good in 2009 and tested his second bomb soon after. € 2010s: Fire and fury.Ž President Barack Obamas moves to help to oust Libyan leader Muammar Qadda“, who had surrendered his nuclear weapons, reaf“rmed North Koreas resolve to accelerate its program. Kim Jong Un, who took power two months after Qadda“s death, stepped up bomb and missile testing, and declared in November that he could strike the U.S. with a nuclear weapon. Trump, meanwhile, tightened sanctions and threatened “re and furyŽ to stop him. € Now: Unprecedented meeting. Kim opened the door to talks with South Korea in a New Years Day speech, and a few months later Trump made a surprise decision to meet him a request that U.S. presidents had denied for decades. Many analysts are skeptical that Trump can persuade Kim to “nally give up his nuclear weapons and forge a new identity. They dont want to see all their impressive achievements go down the drain,Ž said Andrei Lankov, a historian at Kookmin University in Seoul who once studied in Pyongyang. If they surrender nuclear weapons, they will sign their own death warrant.ŽHistory says North Korea is unlikely to give up nuclear weaponsBy ANDY SHARP and K ANGA KONGBLOOMBERG NEWSGUATEMALA CITY „ Guatemalans voted Sunday in a referendum that could take the country a step closer to resolving a longstanding territorial dispute with neighboring Belize. The ballot asked whether voters agree to send the issue to the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, for a binding ruling. However Belize has yet to hold its own referendum as stipulated under a 2008 agreement with Guatemala, under which both countries would ask the court to take up the matter. Guatemala claims some 4,200 square miles of terrain administered by Belize „ essentially the countrys entire southern half. The area is home to a number of nature reserves and is sparsely populated for the most part, with scattered farming villages, “shing towns and some Caribbean beach tourism destinations. The origin of the dispute dates back over 200 years to when Guatemala and Belize were Spanish and British colonies, respectively. Guatemala became independent in 1821 and argues that it inherited Spains original claim on the territory. Belize considers Guatemalas claim unfounded and says the borders were de“ned by an 1859 boundary convention between the United Kingdom and Guatemala, according to the website of the governmental Belize Referendum Commission. Amid violence and crime by Guatemalan country dwellers in the disputed region, at least 10 of them have been killed by Belizean civilians or soldiers on patrol. Diplomatic relations and even air travel between the two countries have also suffered at times as a result of the dispute. Casting his vote Sunday, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales said his country and Belize currently have cordial relations and the aim of the referendum is to ultimately resolve the con”ict.Guatemalans vote on generations-old land dispute with BelizeASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOGuatemalan President Jimmy Morales poses for photographers before voting in a plebiscite concerning a border dispute with Belize, in Guatemala City, Sunday.

PETERSBURG „ A tornado warning was posted by the National Weather Service in the area of Tropicana Field Sunday. The storm passed without incident, but the forecast for the Rays season did not improve much during their 10-4 loss to Philadelphia, marking the third time they have swept been in a series already this season. The Phillies, who tagged Rays ace Chris Archer for six runs in the second inning Saturday, scored four times in the third i nning to spoil the first major-league start by Ryan Yarbrough. Three of those runs came on a bases-loaded double by Scott Kingery over the head of center fielder Johnny Field during a 38-pitch inning by Yarbrough. Philadelphia put the game away with five runs in the eighth. The loss, which was the fourth straight for the Rays and dropped them to 3-12 on the season, wasnt even the worst thing that may have happened before 19,841 at the Trop Sunday. Field was only in the game because a hustle base-running play by Kevin Kiermaier resulted in the Rays center fielder having to leave the game after only one inning. Kiermaier, who missed about two months last season with a hairline fracture to his right hip, looped a soft single into left field in his first at bat against Phillies starter Ben Lively. When Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins bobbled the ball, Kiermaier hustled into second and beat the throw with a head-first slide. But he appeared to jam his right thumb on the bag. After checking with trainers and manager Kevin Cash, he remained in the game and scored a run when Mallex Smith tripled two batters later. But Kiermaier was replaced in the top of the second inning in center by Field. The Rays announced that Kiermaier has a right thumb sprain and is day-to-day. He will be re-evaluated Monday.MLB: Phillies 10, Rays 4Rays cant weather big-inning stormAP PHOTOTampa Bay Rays relief pitcher Andrew Kittredge, right, waits as Philadelphia Phillies Aaron Altherr runs the bases after Altherr hit a three-run home run Sunday in St. Petersburg.

Those worries are over for the 28-year-old from Japan, who rallied from six shots behind to win the RBC Heritage in a playoff and gain an invitation to join the tour as a regular. This is a stage Ive been dreaming about,Ž Kodaira said through an interpreter. And having this opportunity to play full time is a dream come true. So, of course, I will accept full-time membership.Ž Kodaira defeated Si Woo Kim on the third playoff hole, rolling in a 25-foot birdie on the par-3 17th hole, then punching his fist in celebration. It ended a drama-filled final round in which it appeared that Kim, Ian Poulter and Luke List had the lock on the title at different points. But it was Kodairas relentless grind to the top that won the day. And with the game he showed at Harbour Town Golf Links, Kodaira appears like hes got more big moments on tour ahead like countryman and five-time tour winner Hideki Matsuyama. I feel like Im getting closer to that level,Ž said Kodaira, who is ranked 46th in the world and has played in 15 tour events. Id like to do my best in major championships and, hopefully, work hard at it.ŽGOLF: RBC HeritageKodaira rallies to win 3-hole playo at RBC HeritageAP PHOTOSatoshi Kodaira holds the trophy after winning the RBC Heritage in a three-hole playoff against Si Woo Kim Sunday in Hilton Head Island, S.C.

This is what happens when the regular season turns into the playoffs. The intensity ratchets up a tick or two or ten. Perfect for a big body like Killorn. He just amps up his game,Ž Victor Hedman said. Killorn had two more goals during Saturdays 5-3 win against the Devils in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup quarterfinals. He has three in the two games, both Lightning victories. Killorn has 18 goals in 49 playoff games. Four of them were game-winners. His two goals Saturday were on the power play. Killorn has two power play goals in 82 games during the regular season. So, what gives? I dont know,Ž Killorn said. I think playoffs is more of an emotional game. Its easier to get into the games. Its just a one-game mentality. Youre not too worried about the series on the next (opponent), youre just worried about the next g ame. I think that mindset helps me play my best hockey.Ž It helps that Killorns 6-foot-1, 196-pound frame is built for playoff hockey, when the play is more physical than the regular season. A lot more banging in front of the net. Killorn scored twice Saturday while stationed in front of Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid. The first was when he redirected a pass from Nikita Kucherov past Kinkaid to give the Lightning a 2-1 lead. The second game off a scramble in traffic to extend the lead to 5-1. Some guys are just good in big games,Ž Brayden Point said. Look at their past and they have been very successful. Some guys can elevate their game in big games and they are two of them.Ž Point was also talking about Tyler Johnson, another of the Lightnings forwards who come to life in the postseason. Johnson had a goal and an assist in Game 1. Ondrej Palat is a member of that group, as well, with a goal and three assists in the first two games. Killorn etched himself into Lightning lore with his winning goal 1:54 into to the second period against the Rangers in Game 7 of the 2015 Eastern Conference Finals. He beat Henrik Lundqvist with a backhander from about 18 feet out for the first goal in the Lightnings 2-0 win. In Lightnings next game that June, Game 1 of the Cup Finals against the Blackhawks, Killorn turned in the most memorable goal of his career. Posted up to the left of the net, he knocked down a pass from Anton Stralman out of the air and somehow managed to bounce the puck past Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford. Hes a good player,Ž coach Jon Cooper said when pressed for Killorns playoff success. Hes an NHL player. Hes got size and skill. Hes a power forward. He plays the right way and that line, (Tony) Cirelli, (Yanni) Gourde, Killorn line had done really well (Saturday). He can finish in front of the net on the power play and thats what he did (Saturda y ).Ž Johnson talked after the Game 1 win about how much fun he has playing in the playoffs. Same goes for Killorn. You play all season for this. Playoff hockey is great,Ž he said. Theres a few more cameras around and a few more people watching, but I think we like that pressure. We like having eyes on us.Ž Killorns goals Saturday were not pretty. He said that himself, afterwards. But they are what you need in the tightly contested playoff games. A lot of times Kucherov or Stamkos is scoring on those shots, but when they dont, me and (J.T.) Miller try to be at the net and cause havoc,Ž Killorn said. On the two that I scored (Saturday) I was just in the right place and Kucherov put in in a good spot for me.Ž The right place, the right spot for Killorn is the p la y offs.NHL: LightningDont look now, but Alex Killorn is doing it againAUTO RACING 1 p.m. FOX „ NASCAR, Monster Energy Cup Series, Food City 500, at Bristol, Tenn.

The Celtics led 99-96 with 0.5 seconds left in regulation when Middleton took an inbounds pass on the far right wing and hit a contested 35-footer. Boston outscored Milwaukee 14-8 in the extra period. Terry Rozier added 23 points, four rebounds and three assists for Boston in his first career playoff s tart. Jaylen Brown finished with 20 points. Rookie Jayson Tatum added 19 points and 10 rebounds. Rozier said he knows hes under a spotlight this postseason with Kyrie Irving out for the season following his recent knee surgery. I just know I gotta step up,Ž he said. I know I gotta fill big shoes.

Malcolm Brogdon scored all 16 of his points after halftime.PACERS 98, CAVALIERS 80: Victor Oladipo scored 32 points and the Indiana Pacers held off Clevelands second-half rally for a stunning victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference series, handing LeBron James and the Cavaliers their “ rst loss in the opening round in eight years. Indiana was in control from the outset, opening a 21-point lead in the “ rst quarter and leading by 23 in the third. The Cavs stormed back and got within seven, but Oladipo hit a big 3-pointer and Bojan Bogdanovic helped put Cleveland away with a 3 to make it 88-71.

Malkin and Dumoulin scored 5 seconds apart. Justin Schultz made it 5-1 in the third on Pittsburghs third power-play goal of the game.

Jane and Henry Richard, siblings of the youngest victim Martin Richard, and members of the familys foundation, also spoke. Henry Richard urged those listening to follow Martins message to choose kindness and do more.Ž The familys foundation was founded in 2014 to connect young people with opportunities for volunteerism and community engagement. Victim Lu Lingzis uncle, Sherman Yee, was present at the ceremony and private gathering. He said, The family has been overwhelmed by love and support from all over the world.Ž He called Lingzi an extraordinary girlŽ who represented the youth that come to the U.S. from China to study. While she didnt realize her dreams, as her family we invest in the youths through our foundation to keep her memory going,Ž he said. The bombs also killed 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, of Arlington. Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier was killed in the line of duty during a confrontation with bomber Tamerlan Tzarneav. Roxanne Simmonds was at commemorative ceremonies to honor her son, fallen Boston police officer Dennis Simmonds. Simmonds suffered a head injury on April 19, 2013, during a shootout with Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev as law enforcement closed in on them. He suffered a fatal brain aneurysm a year later assessed to be the result of his injuries from the explosive device. Roxanne Simmonds said DJŽ was brilliant and fearless „ he just loved Boston.Ž The youngest graduate of his class at Lasell College, Dennis Simmonds worked in Mattapan as an officer. It was important for him to be in a community with men and women who look like him,Ž his mother said. Individuals of color working hard to make sure their communities were safe.Ž She praised Walsh, saying that it was obvious how significant the victims are to the mayor. Arreen Andrew, of Boston, said she was in the crowd across the stand when the first bomb went off in 2013. It was sheer panic,Ž she recalled. Just this sense of No, this cant happen to us.Ž Five years later, while the day is still a reminder of some painful memories, she said it has also become a day about the relationships that have since been formed and reformed and recreated our entire community.Ž For some, such an anniversary is about planting the seeds of change. Forty-threeyear-old Heather Abbott of Newport, Rhode Island hosted a fundraiser for her foundation that supports amputees. Abbott was outside of Forum, a restaurant by the finish line, when the impact of the second bomb blew her through the entrance of the building. Former New England Patriots lineman Matt Chatham and his wife Erin were in the restaurant, and carried Abbott to safety. After three surgeries in four days, Abbotts left leg was amputated below the knee. Her recovery was long, but in 2014, Abbott started her own foundation to help amputees with financial difficulties afford prosthetics and expensive co-payments. I want to make some changes in the world of health insurance and help them understand why people need these devices,Ž said Abbott. Abbott says the foundation has given out 19 prosthetic devices out so far. They can cost from $15,000 to as much as $100,000,Ž she said.By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressGregg Popovich and Erik Spoelstra have copious amounts of championship jewelry in their possessions, and their teams committing to the level of defense necessary to win in the postseason is a major reason why thats the case. Vastly improved defense will be what both coaches demand „ or at least hope for „ on Monday. Popovichs San Antonio Spurs just didnt have enough answers for Golden State in Game 1 of their Western Conference series, and Spoelstras Miami Heat offered Philadelphia absolutely no resistance in a second-half meltdown that opened their Eastern Conference series. The Warriors and 76ers are both looking to take 2-0 leads when those matchups resume on their respective home floors. We understand that we are not favorites,Ž San Antonios Manu Ginobili said. We are underdogs. We talked about it, and to get a win here, weve got to overachieve. Weve got to do better than we think we can do, even. So well fight as hard as we can in Game 2.Ž That will have to be a mantra for both the Spurs and the Heat. The Spurs allowed Golden State to shoot 54 percent in what became a 113-92 playoff-opening win for the defending NBA champions. Game 1 in Philadelphia was even more one-sided, as the 76ers closed the game on a 74-40 run in what ended up as a 130-103 rout „ the most points that any Heat team has allowed in any postseason game. We have to learn from it,Ž Miami guard Dwyane Wade said. Its a sevengame series. They beat our butt in the first one. But at the end of the day, theyre up 1-0 no matter which way they did it. We definitely have to make adjustments. We cant go into the game saying, Oh, theyre not going to make those shots again.ŽA look at Monday nights matchups:HEAT AT 76ERS, Philadelphia leads 1-0. Game 2, 8 p.m., TNT. Need to know: Philadelphia has now won 17 consecutive games, as well as 24 of its last 25 at home (not counting a homeŽ loss in London to Boston), and is coming off its fourth outing of 130 points or more this season. If thats the way its going to be, then weve got to conquer it,Ž Spoelstra said. Weve got to “ nd a way.Ž Keep an eye on: Miami will have to change how it attacks screens and gets out on Philadelphias shooters, but thats obviously easier said than done. Philadelphia will be brimming with con“ dence, and rightly so. 76ers coach Brett Brown knows the Heat will make adjustments, and itll be incumbent on him to react on the ” y in Game 2. Injury update: 76ers star center Joel Embiid was released from the NBAs concussion protocol Sunday, but he will not play in Game 2. Hes recovering from surgery to repair an orbital fracture. For Miami, point guard Goran Dragic played Saturday through a sore right knee that has dogged him for a couple weeks. Pressure is on: It was just one game, but Miami knows it cant have a combined 13-for-40 shooting effort from its starting lineup again, or see Hassan Whiteside „ the $23 million center „ be a complete nonfactor while playing only 12 minutes. SPURS AT WARRIORS, Golden State leads 1-0. Game 2, 10:30 p.m., TNT. Need to know: When Golden State senses a chance to grab command, it usually pounces „ as evidenced by how the Warriors are 8-0 in their last eight Game 2s. The Spurs have never dropped six consecutive postseason games under Popovich, though that streak will likely be seriously tested unless San Antonio comes up with some very different ideas very quickly. Keep an eye on: San Antonio likely needs to get LaMarcus Aldridge going very early, to see if he can get in the rhythm that avoided him in Game 1. For Golden State, Klay Thompson bided his time in Game 1 and wound up shooting 11 for 13 „ playing a brilliant game, getting teammates open with hard cuts in the early going before the ball found him. Injury update: Warriors star Stephen Curry and Spurs star Kawhi Leonard both remain out, but theres no new major issues for either team. Pressure is on: Oddly, its probably more on the Warriors than the Spurs. Golden State lost 10 of its “ nal 17 regular-season games, and doesnt want to see this series open with a split that will see the return of whats wrong with the Warriors?Ž questions.

Ryan Blaney was dominant early in the No. 12 Ford, leading 99 laps of the first 119 laps before getting caught up in wreck that left his car in shambles. It happened on turn three when Chris Buescher and Trevor Bayne, who were fighting to stay on the lead lap, got tangled up in front of Blaney, leaving him nowhere to maneuver. By the time I got away from the car right in front of me they were already turned right up the race track and I was already going to the top,Ž of the track,Ž Blaney said. I kind of saw them spinning low and I thought that top was going to be OK and then they slid back up and got us. That stinks. I thought we had a good car and nothing to show for it.ŽNASCARFrom Page 1Bryson DeChambeau (66) and L ist (72) were tied for third. Third-round leader Poulters bid for a second tour title in three weeks ended with a 75 and a tie for seventh. Starting times for the final round were moved up because of a forecast for bad weather. Kodaira won $1.206 million. Hell be exempt on the PGA Tour through the 2019-20 season. The tournament appeared in steady hands with Kim, whose bulldog focus and shot-making held everyone off to win The Players Championship last May. But the 22-year-old from South Korea faltered over his final nine holes of regulation, with three bogeys to fall into the tie with Kodaira. Kim had the chance to win in regulation but missed a six-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. Kodaira said that was the most nervous he was during his wait of about an hour before the playoff. Kodaira might have had a few butterflies on the final playoff hole as Kim had a 21-foot birdie tr y to extend things, but he came up short. Kim thought the increased winds slowed down the greens, making putts more difficult on the final nine holes. But I tried my best and the putts didnt drop,Ž Kim said. It is what it is.Ž Poulter, who dramatically won the Houston Open two weeks ago for his first tour win in more than five years, had six bogeys Sunday after making just two in his first three rounds. Kodaira was the hardest charged and few even realized until the final threesome of Kim, Poulter and List all came back to the pack. Kodaira became the sixth straight RBC Heritage champion who was three strokes down or more at the start of the final round. Playing Harbour Town for the first time, Kodaira opened with a 73, then followed with the tournaments best round of the week, 63, on Friday. That game kicked in once more in the final round, with six birdies on the way to the playoff. DeChambeau, the 24-year-old secondround leader who fell apart with a Saturday 75, bounced back Sunda y with a 66 to finish two shots back. His roller coaster of a tournament played out again in the final round as he rose three shots to 9-under, then fell back to 7-under before closing with consecutive birdies on the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th holes. Dustin Johnson finished with his best round of the week, a 67, and tied for 16th, ensuring that he will stay at No. 1 in the world for at least the next two weeks. He will take the next three weeks off, starting with a vacation to the Bahamas „ŽIm headed there ri g ht now,Ž he said, smiling „ until he returns to action at The Players Championship. Johnson said his problem this season has been on the greens, calling his putting subpar from what he expects. He said he plans to work things out over the break and will be ready for the Players.Ž Storms forecast for late Sunday afternoon and early evening forced the PGA Tour to move up start times to 7 a.m., with the leaders going off about two hours later. The weather, while overcast and windy at times, remained calm enough to get in the final round without disru p tion.GOLFFrom Page 1BOSTONFrom Page 1AP PHOTOSan Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, right, speaks with Derrick White during the second half in Game 1 Saturday in Oakland.

Yarbrough was removed with two out in the fifth after allowing five runs, two of them earned, three hits while walking two and hitting a batter. The Rays got a little unlucky in the third inning. Just before Kingerys double, it appeared he would foul out to catcher Jesus Sucre. But the ball hit the top of wire of the screen by the Rays dugout. The Rays jumped to a 2-0 lead. Denard Span blasted a long home run to right to lead off the game for the Rays. For Span, who did not play Saturday due to an aching bodyŽ but was in the lineup Sunday as the designated hitter, it was his 15th career leadoff homer. After Kiermaiers single, he remained in the game and scored on a triple by Smith to make it 2-0. Inexplicably, the Rays are 2-7 this season when scoring first in a game, the lowest winning percentage in the majors when doing so. The Rays out-hit the Phillies 11-8 Sunday. The Rays cut the lead to 4-3 when C.J. Cron and Matt Duffy singled in the fourth ahead of Sucres RBI single. The Phillies added a run in the fifth and five more in the eighth, when Aaron Altherr hit a threerun homer off Andrew Kittredge. The Rays loaded the bases with no one out in the eighth, but could only score once on a bases-loaded walk by Span sandwiched around three strikeouts. The Rays begin a three-game series Monday against the Texas Rangers Monday as Blake Snell takes the mound to try and halt a four-game losing streak.

The stadium bearing his name is ready to bustle again. Thats an apt way to show how things are right now in Puerto Rico, which is about to host its most significant sporting events since Hurricane Maria dramatically ravaged the islands seven months ago. Major League Baseball returns Tuesday to San Juan, with Cleveland and Minnesota opening a two-game series that many hope will remind the rest of the world that recovery from the storm is far from over. I hate to say it, but this is a great platform, so people can see the reality,Ž said Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora, a native Puerto Rican and someone who bought tickets to Ind ians-Twins for his family „ and wishes it was his team playing in San Juan this week. Were much better than six, seven months ago, whenever it was. But weve still got work to do.Ž The evidence of that is everywhere in San Juan, and only becomes more prevalent as one ventures into more remote areas of the islands. Blue tarps still cover countless roofs that were damaged. Many electronic signs along major highways arent working, traffic lights remain out even in some of San Juans more upscale areas, and around the airport there are towering palm trees that no longer stand straight „ theyre curved, yet another reminder of the wind that lashed into them. Bithorn, the first Puerto Rican to play in the majors, was commemorated by a statue outside the stadium where the Twins and Indians will play. The statue blew over in the storm, landing face-first on the concrete. The massive base of the statue is still there, but the bronze replica of Bithorn in uniform is nowhere to be found. People are still suffering over there,Ž Houston Astros star shortstop Carlos Correa, who hails from Puerto Rico, said Sunday. And to be able to bring baseball, the sport that we love the most, back to my hometown „ its going to be amazing. A lot of people are looking forward to it. Im pretty sure its sold out already and its going to be a life-changing experience for a lot of kids who cant travel to the United States to watch a big league game.Ž Maria was the thirdcostliest hurricane in U.S. history, hitting Puerto Rico as a highend Category 4 storm on Sept. 20. It arrived with 155 mph winds, barely below the threshold for Category 5 status. Hurricanes weaken over land, when theyre not drawing energy from warm water to fuel their wrath, but wind speeds when Maria was done with her path across the island were merely down to about 110 mph. Maria was blamed for 65 deaths in Puerto Rico. But that figure is way too low to be fully accurate; even the National Hurricane Center, in its recently released report on the storm, said it should be noted that hundreds of additional indirect deaths in Puerto Rico may eventually be attributed to Marias aftermath pending the results of an official government review.Ž As far as the cost, in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands alone Maria is estimated to have caused up to $115 billion in damage. There are thousands of people still with nothing over there,Ž Correa said. No house. No roof. No power. No food. No water. And we still need to help.Ž A pair of baseball games wont fix all the issues, of course. But the mere sense of normalcy, in abnormal times, will help. We have a chance to have influence,Ž Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Some of it is resource, some of it is just, you put your words and your presence there and it brings significance to the efforts that are ongoing. So MLB, the Twins and the Indians have all done a good job of coordinating as many things as we can during the course of those three days without detracting from the fact that were there to play baseball.Ž The Twins, the Indians, MLB officials and Baseball Hall of Famers „ some, like Roberto Alomar, are from Puerto Rico; some, like Cal Ripken Jr., are not „ will be across the island this week. Clinics for kids will be held. Money will be raised and distributed. Supplies will be left behind. Twins employees are planning to aid workers trying to restore water and power. Indians CEO Paul Dolan will help plant native trees to replace some those that were destroyed. And then for 18 innings or so on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 18,000 fans at Hiram Bithorn Stadium will get to cheer again. Its always good to have a reminder that we have work to do,Ž Cora said. People dont realize it. Theres people in the mountains that have no water, no power. Its been like six, seven months. Thats tough. Sometimes (in the U.S.) we complain that we dont have power for three days and were going nuts. Imagine having that.ŽMLB: San JuanPeople are still su ering AP FILE PHOTOHomes in the Cantera area are covered with FEMA tarps, where buildings from the Hato Rey area stand in the background in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

MLB back in storm-hit San Juan AP PHOTOBoston Red Soxs Mitch Moreland is welcomed to the dugout after scoring on a ground-rule double hit by Tzu-Wei Lin, of Taiwan, in the sixth inning of a game against the Baltimore Orioles, Sunday, in Boston. Associated PressBOSTON „ Andrew Benintendi got three hits and the Boston Red Sox extended the best start in their 118-year history, beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 Sunday at frigid Fenway Park. Mitch Moreland also had three hits for the Red Sox, who completed a three-game sweep of the shortened series and improved to a major league-best 13-2 under new manager Alex Cora. The series was supposed to last four games, but the traditional Patriots Day game scheduled for Monday morning at 11:05 a.m. was postponed late Sunday afternoon because of a forecast that calls for heavy rain throughout the day. The game will be made up May 17. It is the “ rst time the Patriots Day game in Boston has been postponed since 1984. Manny Machado had an RBI double for Baltimore, which has lost “ ve of six. Boston ace Chris Sale gave up one run and two hits in “ ve innings, striking eight and walking two. Heath Hembree (2-0) worked two innings of scoreless relief. Craig Kimbrel got three outs for his “ fth save. METS 3, BREWERS 2: Wilmer Flores hit a game-winning home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and New York beat Milwaukee to improve the best start in team history to 12-2. Noah Syndergaard struck out eight batters in a row, two shy of Tom Seavers major league record, and Brandon Nimmo “ nished a double shy of the cycle. Nimmo connected for a tying home run against Taylor Williams leading off the sixth on a cold, blustery afternoon at Citi Field. Flores broke a 2-all tie with a drive over the left-center wall against Matt Albers (2-1) for his second home run this year. New York has opened a season with “ ve straight series wins for the “ rst time. Jeurys Familia (1-0) worked around a walk in a hitless ninth. ROCKIES 6, NATIONALS 5: Ian Desmond hit a tiebreaking, two-out homer in the ninth inning against his former team, Charlie Blackmon drove in three runs and Colorado rallied to beat Washington. After Sean Doolittle (0-1) struck out Carlos Gonzalez and Gerardo Parra to open the ninth, Desmond sent a belt-high, 3-2 fastball over the 402-foot sign in straightaway center as Colorado took three out of four in its only visit to Washington. Adam Ottavino (3-0) got the win despite allowing a run in the eighth. Wade Davis worked the ninth for his seventh save in eight opportunities. PIRATES 7, MARLINS : Starling Marte went 5 for 5 with a ninth-inning homer to help Pittsburgh beat Miami. Martes “ ve hits were a career high, and his average rose from .241 to .305. He scored four times and hit his third homer off Junichi Tazawa. The surprising Pirates (11-4) improved to 7-0 in day games, completed a 4-2 trip and head home atop the NL Central. Ivan Nova (2-1) recovered from a wobbly start to pitch 6 2/3 innings. He allowed three runs and struck out nine, his highest total since 2016. Jose Urena (0-3) allowed eight hits and four runs in “ ve innings. After four starts, the Marlins ace has an ERA of 5.57. CARDINALS 3, REDS 2: Carlos Martinez struck out a season-high 11 batters in seven shutout innings and Harrison Baders two-run home run helped St. Louis complete its “ rst four-game sweep in Cincinnati since 1949. Martinez (2-1) allowed two hits and four walks while helping send the Reds to their eighth consecutive loss, one short of matching their longest losing streak of last season. The Reds scored 10 runs in the series while being swept in four games at home by St. Louis for the “ rst time since July 8-10, 1949. The Reds havent enjoyed a lead in 32 innings, going back to the fourth inning on Thursday. They are 2-13 for the “ rst time since the 1931 Reds won two of their “ rst 19 games. Bud Norris allowed Adam Duvalls ninth-inning leadoff homer and the Reds got a runner to second with nobody out. Norris struck out Alex Blandino and Phillip Ervin and got Billy Hamilton to line out to clinch his third save.MLB ROUNDUPRed Sox move to MLB-best 13-2By JAY COHENAssociated PressCHICAGO „ April showers „ and snow, sleet and wind „ are wreaking havoc on major league baseball. No Ohtani in Kansas City. No Judge in Detroit. One less off day for a couple more teams this summer. Six more games were wiped out Sunday, running baseballs total number of postponements to 21 just 2 weeks into the season. Its baseballs highest number through the end of April since it had 26 in 2007, and there are still a couple weeks to go this month. The last time six games were wiped out in a single day was Sept. 12, 2008, and that situation was partly caused by Hurricane Ike battering the Gulf Coast. There was more dicey weather in the forecast for Monday, and Boston postponed its annual Patriots Day game for the first time since 1984. If it was up to me, no one would play north of Atlanta or east of Colorado in the first few weeks, but thats not going to happen,Ž Braves reliever Peter Moylan said. Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani was slated to pitch for the third time before their game against the Royals was called off because of subfreezing temperatures. Aaron Judge and the Yankees were set to play a doubleheader against the Tigers after a rainout on Saturday, but the twinbill was pulled, too, with icicles all over Comerica Park. The last three games of Minnesotas series at Target Field against the Chicago White Sox were lost to rain, then a blizzard. Also postponed were Blue Jays at Indians, and Braves at Cubs one day after the teams played through miserable conditions at Wrigley Field. Driving out again, it was remarkably bad,Ž Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. Its just the right thing to do. Its not about just getting games in. You want to be able to play the game on a major league-caliber, championship-caliber level.Ž Tough to do on Sunday. The start of St. Louis game at Cincinnati was delayed for more than 2 hours because of the weather. Fans and players wore ski masks at Citi Field, and there was free hot chocolate at the concession stands at Fenway Park. I was miserable, nothing short of miserable,Ž Boston ace Chris Sale said after the Red Sox beat Baltimore 3-1. I said it when I came out of the game: This is the most miserable Ive ever been on a baseball field, by far, not even close.ŽMLB: Weather W intry weather, plenty of postponements
