SARASOTA „ Progress toward a new courthouse for South County will take a step forward if Sarasota County commissioners approve a pair of contracts during its meeting Tuesday. As part of their consent agenda, commissioners are being asked to approve a $1.5 million contract with DLR Group Inc. of Palmetto for architectural services for the proposed four-court courthouse adjacent to the R.L. Anderson Administration Center. The second contract is for $280,000 with Halfacre Construction Co. of Sarasota to serve as the construction manager for the project. Besides the courthouse, the contracts also include remodeling for the Anderson building to accommodate the growing needs of the constitutional of“cers and Planning and Development Services. Proposed plans dictate that the constitutional of“cers will remain on the “rst ”oor of the building. For 11 years, the county has sought ways to improve the delivery of judicial services in South County, recognizing both the growth in the area and that the current courtroom facilities located on the second ”oor of the building do not meet modern operational standards. In October 2016, commissioners selected the new four-courtroom courthouse from several options developed by staff and court administration and vetted by attorneys from South County who routinely practice at the Anderson complex. And in February 2017, commissioners added the project to the capital improvements program by a unanimous vote. Funding for both contracts, according to a staff memo, is available from justice facility impact fees and the court fee in the capital improvements fund. Commissioners will meet South County courthouse contracts to be consideredBy WARREN RICHARDSONSUN CORRESPONDENTCONTRACTS | 4 SUN PHOTO BY ANNE EASKER Jamie Walton stands at the front desk of the Wayne Foundation in Englewood.Wayne Foundation supports survivorsWhen Jamie Walton was a 14-year-old living in Venice, she spent every other weekend ”ying from Florida to Atlanta to see the 46-year-old man shed met and started a romantic relationship with online. During her visits, he told people she was 19 years old, and sometime over the course of the weekend, he would ask her to have sex with a total stranger. His selling point to get me to do it was that it would make him happy,Ž Walton said. And I wanted him to love me, because I came from a very abusive background and my mom was a drug addict. So living at home in Florida, I was completely miserable.Ž Walton tried turning to the police and other family members about her moms drug addiction and the abuse she suffered at home, but nobody seemed to listen. So thats kind of what drove me into this guys arms was just needing rescue almost,Ž she said. And he honestly did position himself as my rescuer. He positioned my mom as the bad guy and really set himself up as a counterpoint to that, like, Oh, well, Im gonna marry you. Im gonna make sure youre safe.Ž At the time, there were no federal or state laws to address what was happening to her. Human traf“cking wasnt a crime, and Walton didnt view herself as a victim. I did not know what was happening to me was even prostitution „ the word we would have used for it back then,Ž she said. There was no money exchanging in and out of my hands. But I would “nd out later there was compensation happening between the people he was asking me to have sex with and him.ŽScope of the problemThe U.S. Department of Homeland Security de“nes human traf“cking as modern day slavery involving the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Last year, the National Human Traf“cking Hotline received 1,601 calls from Florida, a small decrease from 1,623 calls in 2016. However, the number of cases reported rose from 555 to 604. The state ranks third for the number of total reports, behind California and Texas. Reported numbers are likely lower than reality, and the number of convictions are even lower. It is hard to prove, because it requires multiple agencies to coordinate their efforts as well as very traumatized victims having the emotional availability on our time schedule,Ž said Assistant State Attorney Francine Donnorummo, special victims chief in the 20th Judicial Circuit.By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER National Human Trafficking Hotline: 1-888-373-7888 TTY: 711 Text: 233733 U.S. Department of Justice Hotline: 1-888-428-7581 Florida Abuse Hotline: 1-800-962-2873 € Signs of physical and sexual violence, such as: unexplained bruises, black eyes, cuts, or marks € Fear, anxiety, depression, submission, tension, and/or nervousness € Hyper-vigilant or paranoid behavior € Children and youth often express interest in, or are in relationships with adults or older men € Evidence of controlling or dominating relationships, including: repeated phone calls from a boyfriendŽ and/or excessive concern about displeasing a partner € Unexplained shopping trips or possession of expensive clothing, jewelry, or a cellphone could indicate the manipulation of an exploiter € Not in control of their own money € Secrecy about whereabouts € Unaccounted for time, vagueness concerning whereabouts, and/or defensiveness in response to questions or concerns € Keeping late-night or unusual hours € Use of lingo or slang from the lifeŽ among peers, or referring to a boyfriend as DaddyŽ € A tattoo that he or she is reluctant to explain may be the result of tattooing or branding by a pimp € New clothes, or getting hair or nails done with no financial means to do this independently € May be trained to lie about their age.

Henry Adams, writing about his life in the early 1800s could have been writing about America of 2018. See if you can see yourself and America in these writings from almost 200 years ago. Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, had always been the systematic organization of hatreds, and Massachusetts politics had been as harsh as the climate.Ž This sure sounds similar to todays toxic political climate. America is sometimes polarized between ”yover country and the coastal elites. But that view is not new. Though Quincy was but two hours walk from Beacon Hill, it belonged in a different world. For two hundred years, every Adams, from father to son, had lived within sight of State Street, and sometimes had lived in it, yet none had ever taken kindly to the town, or been taken kindly by it.Ž Yet he felt also that Quincy was in a way inferior to Boston and that socially Boston looked down on Quincy. The reason enough was clear enough even to a “ve-year-old child. Quincy had no Boston style. Ž Some folks think our Muslim and Hispanic immigrants dont share our values. That view of immigrants is not new.  To outsiders, immigrants, adventurers, it was easy, but the old Puritan nature rebelled against change. The reason it gave was Henry Adams words remain relevant in todays world DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENTDAVID | 4CALL US AT941-206-1000CHARLOTTE SUN Pulitzer Prize winner2 0 1 6 AN EDITION OF THE SUNVOL. 126 | NO. 112AMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILY 40 percent chance of rainHigh 88 Low 68$3.00 www.yoursun.comTodays weather: GOOD MORNING Sunday, April 22, 2018 FUNERAL FOR BARBARA BUSH HELD IN HOUSTON Historian Jon Meacham bestowed the title rst lady of the greatest generationŽ on Barbara Bush while speaking to former presid ents, ambassadors and hundreds of other mourners inside the nations largest Episcopal church during her funeral Saturday.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSNORTH PORT „ The North Port City Commission election is in full swing, despite being months away. The race for District 5 of“cially has two candidates: current Commissioner Jill Luke and as of Friday, Peter Bartolotta. Thats what Im known for is getting things done,Ž Bartolotta said. Ive decided to step up and serve the community I love.Ž Bartolotta is the founder of the North Port Economic Development Corporation as well as one of the founders of the Economic Advisory Board and believes his economic development knowledge will help him on the dais. Ive been working on economic development programs for the most part from the outside in and I thought it would be exiting and meaningful to work it from the inside out,Ž he said. (The groups) showed me the passion residents have for the city and I have business experience with Fortune 100 companies.Ž Bartolotta resigned from his post on the Economic Development Corporation in order to run for commissioner. He has lived in North Port for 25 years with his wife and four children. His son, Angel Bartolotta, owns Rockbox Music in North Port. Bartolotta believes his integration in the community will help his run for commissioner. Im blessed. How many parents can say children live in the same town?Ž he said. I would hope (my integration helps my campaign). The voters have an opportunity every four years to say what they like and what they want and have an opportunity to share their vision with elected of“cials. I believe elected of“cials need to make a commitment, saying This is what were going to do.Ž Some of the things Bartolotta wants to do includes starting a workforce education program at STC and becoming a heartŽ for innovation economy to create quality jobs. Some of the jobs are being rede“ned,Ž he said. People will be working for themselves with multiple streams of income, so if thats where the future is going, we need commissioners to look at that with how do we get there.Ž As for hot topic issues in North Port, Bartolotta said his opinions will come out as the campaign stretches on. As the campaign begins to unfold Ill be speaking to those and Im not prepared to speak on those now,Ž he said. But with the Economic Development Corporation master plan put forward, so many people ask Why arent we pursuing that? (The plan outlines economic tactics to take, one which includes bringing 1,700 jobs to the area). I dont know the answer, but I do know how to bring people together making those projects happen.ŽEmail: lcoey@sun-herald.com Peter Bartolotta runs for North Port commissionBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITER BARTOLOTTALittle Explorers at CHECBring your young ones to Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, 10941 Burnt Store Road, Punta Gorda to explore native ecosystems and animals of Florida in a hands-on and exciting way.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 Donnorummo said her of“ce receives a handful of human traf“cking cases to review each year, but that number doesnt fairly quantify the amount of traf“cking thats actually happening in southwest Florida. In brothel situations, victims may rotated from brothel to brothel so its harder for authorities to “nd them. Of the 100 most populous cities in the U.S., Miami and Tampa were ranked fourth and 12th in the number of calls to the hotline per 100,000 people, based on data released last September. However, Walton said human traf“cking, and sex traf“cking in particular, is not just a big city problem. It tends to be a transient crime. Theres only one route to get from Miami to Tampa, and unfortunately traf“ckers are very smart,Ž she said. They dont just go to Miami and Tampa; they stop at all the little towns in between, knowing that the likelihood of law enforcement “nding them is slim to none.Ž Charlotte County has had zero human traf“cking arrests in recent years, though in 2016, an Ocala man was arrested by the Marion County Sheriffs Of“ce for allegedly traf“cking a female victim in “ve counties, including Charlotte. His trial is set to begin Monday. Lt. John Heck, commander of the Major Case Unit, said CCSO has received reports of human traf“cking, but detectives havent been able to substantiate the facts. I would imagine, as with anywhere, that its probably happened here,Ž Heck said. Every jurisdiction is touched by it somehow. They might be coming up from Lee County or down from Sarasota.Ž Just this March, an Orlando man was arrested in Sarasota County after a female jail inmate told detectives he had coerced her and another woman into prostitution, posting ads for them on the now defunct Backpage.com and regularly bringing them from Orlando to Sarasota to engage in sexual activity. He kept the money they earned while supplying them with just enough heroin to support their addictions, according to an arrest af“davit. His case is still pending in court. Advertisements on adult websites often list traf“cked women in multiple counties „ Charlotte, Sarasota, Lee and beyond „ which can be a tell-tale sign. Thats one of the things I ask law enforcement to look at when they look at these ads,Ž Walton said. If you see a woman advertised in Tampa last night, and shes in Charlotte County today, please think about that. Because people who identify as sex workers and prostitutes, they dont market themselves like that. They dont travel like that.ŽThe Wayne FoundationWalton never reported her own traf“cker to police; she simply told him she didnt want to see him anymore after about a year. He tried to emotionally manipulate her, saying he would kill himself, but she held her ground. The experience stuck with her, and in 2009, she reached out to “lmmaker Kevin Smith on Twitter and asked if he was aware the majority of human traf“cking victims in the United States are domestic victims „ citizens born and raised in the U.S. Although human traf“cking was kind of on the radar at that point, it was very much misinterpreted as a foreign issue,Ž she said. Reaching out to a celebrity was unlike her, but something pushed her, Walton said, and the two began a severalmonth conversation about her life and how she became a victim of human traf“cking. At one point, Walton mentioned wanting to work for a charity, and Smith asked why she didnt start her own. Of course, Im talking to someone that lives in Ben Af”ecks old house, so Im like, Do you know that for the rest of us, theres been economic collapse?Ž Walton said. Smith asked if it would make a difference if he was a part of the charity, and suddenly, the Wayne Foundation was born. Smith named it after his favorite character, Batman, or Bruce Wayne. He said to me, I want to call it the Wayne Foundation because its the one time in my life Im going to be able to be Batman in real life. Im really going to be able to help people and save people,Ž Walton recalled. Now, nearly 10 years later, Walton devotes almost all her time and energy to the victims she can relate to personally. She supports them while speaking with law enforcement, in dependency and criminal court, and through medical procedures like rape kits. The foundation helps them with legal and mental health support, and Walton provides training to law enforcement agencies to help “ght the crime. Meanwhile, the Wayne Foundation is backed by Smith and his fundraising ideas. Those ideas include auctioning off costumes from his “lms „ like Zack and Miri Make a PornoŽ „ and his own clothes after he lost 100 pounds. I said to him a long time ago that neither one of us is a superhero, but together we make a superhero,Ž Walton said. Im the one thats engaging with clients and doing the work, and hes the one making sure were up and running.ŽCrimes against the vulnerableWaltons clients come from all over Southwest Florida. About 80 percent are children, and 20 percent are adults. The juveniles mostly meet their traf“ckers online, just like Walton did. Many are involved in child welfare services, just like she was the entire time she was being traf“cked. Their entire world is chaos and emotional pain, so who better to target than a 12-, 14-, 15-year-old girl whos in foster care?Ž she said. You know, and on top of it, whos going to look for them? Whos going to be the one “ghting for them if not a parent?Ž She tries to ful“ll the same needs in her clients lives that their traf“ckers found and exploited, whether thats emotional support, food, clothing, or simply spending money. I “gure that out and then I insert myself into that persons position,Ž she said. Like, Oh he took you to get your nails done? Ill take you to get your nails done. You wanted a ride to the mall? I can give you a ride to the mall. Such simple things that can get them to stop engaging and stop calling and stop talking to them. He was providing emotional support? Well, you can call and text me anytime, and Im always going to be here.Ž For adult victims, theres typically less coercion and more fraud, often centered around drug addiction like the women in the recent Sarasota case. Victims receive drugs in return for sex acts, and over time, they tend to get less drugs, while giving up more money. One woman Walton worked with admitted to being an opioid addict and said her traf“cker forcibly injected her with meth to keep her up four days straight having sex with people. Walton knew she was telling the truth when she noticed the track marks on the outside, rather than the inside, of the womans arm. No one who uses needles sticks themselves over there,Ž she said. Its kind of hard to “nd a vein on the outside of your arm.ŽNeed for awarenessWhile awareness of human traf“cking has increased in recent years, theres more work to be done. Throughout southwest Florida, theres a big need for more shelters, especially for children. For those in foster care, few foster parents are equipped to meet the needs of a child whos been traf“cked. More basic community services would also help prevent traf“cking, Walton said „ simple things like public transportation and more advanced mental health services. I want traf“cking to not happen, and it happens because of vulnerabilities, so things that may seem minor to most people like not having a bus system „ it makes a huge swath of people vulnerable,Ž she said. But for average people, awareness is one of the most important things. The crime is thought to be widely underreported, because victims rarely self identify as victims and dont fully understand whats happening to them. Juveniles often feel they have a relationship with their traf“ckers, while adults may believe they have a business deal. Law enforcement has made big strides in recent years to better understand human traf“cking, and all sworn members of the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce and the Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce are trained to identify the signs, spokespersons for both agencies con“rmed. At the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce, all deputies go through basic training on human traf“cking in their in-service training, and members of the Narcotics Unit and Major Crimes Unit have been through additional training offered at other agencies. It seems to be one of the topics everyone is talking about,Ž Lt. Heck said. In the last “ve to eight years, its de“nitely come up more, and were getting more educated now.Ž At SCSO, some civilian members in the Victim Advocate Unit also attended training on human traf“cking in February hosted by the Attorney Generals Of“ce. The two-day course covered all forms of traf“cking, including labor traf“cking and sex traf“cking of both domestic and foreign victims. Victim Advocate John Walker said hes glad the information is getting out there, particularly about sex traf“cking, because victims are so often dismissed as prostitutes. If we arrest a prostitute, then shes a prostitute, and we dont even think about the other piece thats tied into it, that this person may have been forced to do this, coerced to do this,Ž Walker said. The instructor of the class recommended individuals report anything that seems suspicious, like people going in and out of a house that could be a brothel. Walton would say the same, asking individuals to educate themselves and notice children skipping school a lot, whose parents always seem to be gone, and who spend a lot of time alone. The longer we stay in darkness, the more power these traf“ckers end up having,Ž she said.Email: aeasker@sun-herald.com SURVIVORSFROM PAGE 1 NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING HOTLINE STATISTICS FLORIDA 2017 2016 Calls: 1,601 Calls: 1,623 Human trafficking cases reported: 604 Human trafficking cases reported: 555 „ Source: National Human Trafficking Hotline CHILD TRAFFICKING CASES VERIFIED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES 2015 2016 2017 Charlotte: 2 0 1 Sarasota: 2 2 2 DeSoto: 0 0 1 Lee: 7 10 11 Statewide: 307 420 441 „ Source: DCF Jamie Walton with a crowd at a lecture.

The Puritan thought his thought higher and his moral standards better than those of his successors.Ž Donald Trumps rough and tumble approach to politics seems new and refreshing to some. But consider what Adams wrote about the Donald Trumps of his time. A coarser instrument would have impressed them more. Average human nature is very coarse, and its ideals must necessarily be average. The world never loved perfect poise. What the world does love is commonly absence of poise, for it has to be amused. Napoleons and Andrew Jacksons amuse it.Ž Why is it that violent acts seem to be committed by boys? This is not a new phenomenon. The idea of violence was familiar to the anti-slavery leaders as well to their followers. Mobs were always possible. Henry never happened to be actually concerned in a mob, but he, like every other boy, was sure to be on hand wherever a mob was expected.Ž Some folks today lament how our schools are indoctrinating our children. That complaint was also true in the early 1800s. All State education is a sort of a dynamo machine for polarizing the popular mind; for turning and holding its lines of force in the direction supposed to be most effective for State purposes.Ž The relationship between man and woman is always complicated yet intoxicating. She was the “rst young woman he was ever intimate with „ quick, sensitive, willful, or full of will, energetic, sympathetic and intelligent enough to supply a score of men with ideas „ and he was delighted to give her the reins, to let her drive him where she would. It was his “rst experiment in giving the reins to a woman, and he was so much pleased with the results that he never wanted to take them back.Ž I imagine 200 years from now they will be discussing these same issues the same way Henry Adams wrote about them in the early 1800s.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth V IEWPOINTFaith & Freedom survey disturbing We must enforce No U-turn law Bernice Russell deserves recognition Eliminate hazards at intersection Users hold power over Facebook Some problems with new Bethel-St. Marks Sunshine Law needs enforcementEditor: I recently received a national survey from the Faith & Freedom Coalition. The ideas presented are halftruths, gross exaggerations of fact, and outright lies. Unfortunately, many who read the survey documents may be persuaded to their truth. The survey is intended to be sent to over 10 million voters. Surely a political support group is allowed to promote their opinions. What is disturbing is the vicious attitude portraying any non-Trump supporter as: anti-Christian, anti-family, anti-freedom, and anti-American,Ž Moderate Republican legislators are called weak and timid,Ž for not falling in line behind Trump. Should we be demonized as atheists, subversives, and un-American for not supporting all of the Presidents agenda? The political disrespect and hatred in our country can be directly traced to our rabid partisan politics. American politics began 250 years ago as a compromise of ideas between conservatives and liberals. Todays politicians seem to have lost the meaning of a Government of the people, by the people, and for the people.Ž The peopleŽ have been replaced with the dollar.Ž Partisan compromise has been replaced by special interest political power and money. Political groups like Faith & Freedom play on raw emotions with overbearing claims. Moderates are called cowards, and anyone who opposes is a traitor. Until our politicians become brave again, as they did with McCarthyism; sadly, nothing will change.Bill Summereld Punta GordaEditor: I dont get it. The sign says no u-turn but people do it anyway. I ask why cant you read, or are you just plain dumb? The no U-turn sign across from Lacasa people going south on U.S. 41 turn there all the time. The no U-turn sign at North Port Boulevard and 41 people turn there all the time. Again I ask why? Where is a cop when you need them? Then you want to know why there are so many accidents, because people dont care. Can we get some help from someone that cares from the county or city? Randy Burlison North PortEditor: I was very happy to see my friend, Bernice Russell, depicted on the Ladies Remembered Mural.Ž Bernice and I met when I moved to Punta Gorda in 1990. We both served on the board of the ladies organization of Sacred Heart Catholic Church for several years. Bernice was a very active parishioner and was elected as President of the Guild of Our Lady. I will always remember her as a hard working, digni“ed Christian woman with a good sense of humor. Its so nice to see her memorialized in this manner.Terry Gressert Punta Gordathat neighborhoods boundary lines! Sadly, the editorial contained signi“cant incorrect and misleading information. I can only assume the newspaper is also unaware that in choosing the name Historic District Homeowners Association,Ž it automatically excludes the voice of the majority of residents comprising the former Trabue-Woods neighborhood because most of its residents do not live in homes they own „ but rent their living quarters. The HDHOA also excludes other stakeholders in the neighborhood „ owners of developed properties that provide housing for the residents, businesses that serve the residents, etc. Your editorial mentioned that no one from the neighborhood objected to the name change. That is because their council member told them they do not have a voice unless they are a homeowner. Dawn MacGibbon Punta GordaEditor: In response to April 13 letter, Poor judgment caused accident.Ž I have no desire to enter into a debate over the poor judgment concept. Thats probably the cause of many accidents. However, a properly programmed and working traf“c light would not have given the green light to both vehicles at the same time. There are de“nite turn lanes at this intersection that could be controlled. There is much attention being given to this intersection. Hopefully, something will be done to help eliminate the potential hazards at this intersection.Donald A. Teague Port Charletteof“cials of constitutionally protected rights and Sunshine Law. The Sun recently published multiple articles on the importance of the Sunshine Law but never reported on these violations. Just last year, a couple of concerned gentlemen visited the PG City Annex where they were met with hostility as they attempted to utilize transparency laws to get some information. They were “rst turned down by the custodian of the records. Then the police were actually called on them. An of“cer came, talked to the citizens and realized he couldnt arrest a person in America for peacefully attempting to hold public of“cials accountable ƒ or can you. Shortly thereafter these same gentleman did a video interview of a city of“cial, catching and exposing his multiple violations of Sunshine law. Subsequently, this public of“cial got together with the City Council to quickly draft an unconstitutional trespass ordinance. When arriving for their next interview, these innocent gentlemen were illegitimately trespassed permanently from a public building by lawless public employees. Upon seeing these videos, I reported the violations to every agency imaginable, including the one that publishes the Sunshine Manual mentioned by this newspaper. The statutory penalties for these violations were ignored by everybody. I came to the conclusion that all government of“cials in our area and in the state turn a blind eye to the Sunshine Law, unethically and probably illegally rendering it useless.Dave Kesselring Port CharlotteEditor: Social media is a product of our generation. It is uncharted territory that has the potential for great good and great evil. Sorting out the different pitfalls and fixing them will be tiresome and difficult. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was in the Senate warm, not hot, seat recently as he was questioned mainly about protection of privacy and bias within the company. One of the problems for users is the lack of competitive options. The other is that we are mostly old dogs for whom even this one new application came hard. Still, users hold the power. If we are concerned about how we are treated by Facebook we can close our accounts. We also can check information and shine a light on stuff that is untrue. We are able to use Facebook for free because, like radio, there are advertisers. Someone has to pay the bills. I do like the idea of having the same disclosures for political ads that we see and hear on radio, TV, and print material. I think voters need to know who is paying the tab. And I, for one, do not like the ad by Senator Bill Nelson regarding Facebook. It is just the sort of thing that causes division and strife and prevents honest conversations, solutions and compromises to happen.Jennie Veary EnglewoodEditor: Your April 12 editorial, Name change now uni“es Punta Gorda,Ž failed to identify Martha Bireda as the individual who, at a CRA meeting in August 2002, speci“cally requested the East Punta Gorda neighborhood be named Trabue-Woods for all the reasons she cited on the record back then. As a result, the city ultimately honored her request and formally named that neighborhood Trabue-Woods. The new name approved by council „ Bethel-St Marks „ also was her request for renaming it, as an of“cer of the new Historic District Homeowners Association which had yet to adopt governing bylaws and had not yet secured any nonpro“t status from IRS. Yet the HDHOA recommended the new name to City Council without council being aware the Bethel Church is outside Editor: I recently came across videos on the Internet that contained shameless violations by local public Human trafficking more common than we believedOUR POSITION: While not a notorious problem in our area, human traf“cking does exist and there are signs we can all watch for to help rescue anyone caught up in this crime.The “rst thing you probably think about when someone mentions human traf“cking is the sex trade. And, no doubt, that is probably the form of human traf“cking that is the most talked about „ with the help of Hollywood and movies like Taken.Ž But there are other forms of human traf“cking, some just as prevalent, that we might encounter every day. One de“nition of human traf“cking is recruitment and transportation of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion or deception and taking advantage of that person through abuse of power to gain bene“ts through the exploitation of that person. Traf“cking can involve using that person in the sex trade, forced labor, slavery and even the harvesting of organs. Florida ranks third, behind California and Texas, for the number of traf“cking cases reported. Our front page story today identi“es Miami and Tampa as ranking fourth and 12th respectively, of the 100 most populous cities in the U.S., for the number of calls per 100,000 people, to report traf“cking. Southwest Florida is an area that has seen few cases of traf“cking reported „ but that doesnt mean we are immune. Many traf“cking victims are moved around and the Miami-to-Tampa pipeline runs right through out communities. Lt. John Heck, commander of the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce Major Case Unit, said they have gotten reports of human traf“cking but are rarely able to substantiate the facts. Every jurisdiction is touched by it somehow,Ž Heck said. They might be coming up from Lee County or down from Sarasota.Ž One of the best weapons against traf“cking is awareness and a willingness to get involved and report suspected cases. There are several traits to be alert to, according to the Florida Department of Children and Families, that could indicate a person in distress. They include: € Signs of physical and sexual violence, such as: unexplained bruises, black eyes, cuts, or marks € Fear, anxiety, depression, submission, tension, and/or nervousness € Hyper-vigilant or paranoid behavior € Children and youth often express interest in, or are in relationships with adults or older men € Evidence of controlling or dominating relationships, including: repeated phone calls from a boyfriendŽ and/or excessive concern about displeasing a partner € Unexplained shopping trips or possession of expensive clothing, jewelry, or a cellphone could indicate the manipulation of an exploiter € Not in control of their own money € Unaccounted for time, vagueness concerning whereabouts, and/ or defensiveness in response to questions or concerns € Keeping late-night or unusual hours € New clothes, or getting hair or nails done with no “nancial means to do this independently € Personal information such as: age, name, and/or date of birth might change with each telling of his or her story, or the information given might contradict itself € No identi“cation or is not in control of his or her identi“cation documents Sometimes it is a dif“cult choice to get involved. But, the hardships and abuse victims of traf“cking go through are often horrendous. If any of us can play even a small role in derailing this terrible crime, we should.

The Sun /Sunday, April 22, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINTLast week, one week after the “rst anniversary of Neil Gorsuchs ascension to the Supreme Court, he delivered an opinion that was excellent as it pertained to the case at issue and momentous in its implications pertaining to the institutional tangle known as the administrative state. If he can persuade his fellow court conservatives to see why they were mistaken in disagreeing with him, and if he can persuade his liberal colleagues to follow the logic of their decision with which he concurred, the judiciary will begin restoring constitutional equilibrium. It will limit Congress imprecise legislating that requires excessive unguided improvising by all those involved in seeing that the laws are faithfullyŽ executed. In 1992, when James Dimaya, a Philippine citizen, was 13, he became a lawful permanent resident of the United States, where, unfortunately, his behavior has been less than lawful: In 2007 and 2009, he was convicted of residential burglary. The Department of Homeland Security says he should be deported because he committed a crime of violence,Ž hence covered by a portion of immigration law that, after listing speci“c crimes (rape, murder, etc.), adds a catch-all category of crimes involving a substantial risk that physical force against the person or property of another may be used in the course of committing the offense.Ž How are judges supposed to apply this? Writing for the majority in a 5-4 decision „ and joined by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor (with Gorsuch concurring in the judgment and much of the opinion) „ Elena Kagan wrote: The laws category, a crime of violence,Ž is so indeterminate (fuzzy,Ž she said) that deporting Dimaya under it would violate the Constitutions due process of lawŽ guarantee. Vague laws beget two evils that are related: They do not give citizens reasonably clear notice of what behavior is proscribed or prescribed. And they give „ actually, require of „ judges and law enforcement of“cials excessive discretion in improvising a fuzzy laws meaning. In agreeing with this (and disagreeing with John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito), Gorsuch wrote: Vague laws invite the exercise of arbitrary powerŽ by leaving the people in the dark about what the law demands and allowing prosecutors and courts to make it up.Ž The lack of precise and suf“cient certaintyŽ (criteria stipulated by the English jurist William Blackstone, whose writings in”uenced the Constitutions Framers) invites more unpredictability and arbitrarinessŽ than is constitutional. Furthermore, the crux of Americas constitutional architecture, the separation of powers, is implicated. All legislative power is vested in Congress. The judicial power, Gorsuch wrote, does not license judges to craft new lawsŽ but only to discern and follow an existing laws prescribed course. With the fuzzy crime of violenceŽ category, Congress abdicated its responsibilities for setting the standards of the criminal law.Ž So, allowing vague laws would allow Congress to hand off the job of lawmaking.Ž Hence such laws not only illegitimately transfer power to police and prosecutors but also would leave it all to a judicial hunch.Ž The principle Gorsuch enunciates here regarding one provision of immigration law is a scythe sharp enough to slice through many practices of the administrative state, which translates often vague congressional sentiments into binding rules, a practice indistinguishable from legislating. Gorsuchs principle is also pertinent to something pernicious concerning which he has hitherto expressed wholesome skepticism: Chevron deference.Ž This is the policy (named for the 1984 case in which the Supreme Court propounded it) whereby courts are required to defer to administrative agencies interpretations of ambiguousŽ laws when the interpretations are reasonable.Ž Gorsuch has criticized this emancipation of the administrative state from judicial supervision as a judgemade doctrine for the abdication of judicial duty.Ž It also is an incentive for slovenly lawmaking by a Congress too lazy or risk-averse to be precise in making policy choices, and so lacking in institutional pride that it complacently sloughs off its Article I powers onto Article II entities. Gorsuch wants Article III courts to circumscribe this disreputable behavior. Gorsuch represents the growing ascendency of one kind of conservative jurisprudence, judicial engagement,Ž over another kind, judicial deference.Ž Many conservatives have embraced populism where it least belongs, in judicial reasoning. They have advocated broad judicial deference to decisions because they emanate from majoritarian institutions and processes. Progressives favor such deference because it liberates executive power from congressional direction or judicial supervision. Gorsuch, a thinking persons conservative, declines to be complicit in this, which raises this question: When has a progressive justice provided the “fth vote joining four conservative colleagues? George Wills email address is georgewill@ washpost.com.Gorsuch strikes blow against administrative state WEEK IN REVIEW George Will Nikki Haley thought she knew what President Trump was going to do. Now she looks like a dupe. What makes Republicans in Congress think their trust in Trump will work out any better for them? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that he wont take up legislation blocking Trump from “ring special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Why? I dont think hes going toŽ sack Mueller, McConnell told Fox News. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan expressed similar faith that Trump wouldnt sack Mueller: I have no reason to believe that thats going to happenŽ because I have assurances that its not.Ž Courting disaster because of what they thinkŽ and believeŽ the erratic president will do? You may think your toddler wont wander into traf“c. You may even have her assurances. But that doesnt mean you leave her in the front yard unattended. When I followed the Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama administrations, it was often possible to predict presidential actions based on patterns: Clintons split-thedifference style, Bushs verbal signaling, Obamas caution. But heres a handy rule of thumb for this administration: Those who claim to know what Trump is going to do are making it up. Nobody truly knows, because Trump himself often doesnt know what hes going to do before the moment he does it. Decisions are impulsive, the product not of reason but of the brains cortisol levels. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. This is some of what we have learned lately from the Trump administration: We are imposing new sanctions on Russia. We are not imposing new sanctions on Russia. China isnt manipulating its currency. China is manipulating its currency. Were getting out of Syria. We arent getting out of Syria. Well decide about bombing Syria in 24 to 48 hours. We might not bomb Syria for a long time. We bombed Syria. Trump will be talking to Kim Jong Un. Trump may not be talking to Kim. We are leaving the Trans-Paci“c Partnership. We may rejoin the TPP. We are not rejoining the TPP. Poor Haley had no reason to think the president would change his mind. Yet Trump made the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations look like a fool. After a meeting on Friday about Russia sanctions, Haley went on CBS Face the NationŽ and said the treasury secretary will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasnt already.Ž This was consistent with talking points distributed on Saturday by the Republican National Committee, saying America intends to impose speci“c additional sanctions against Russia.Ž But some synapse mis“red in the presidential amygdala, and what Haley thought she knew was no longer the case. Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Haley had some momentary confusion.Ž Retorted Haley: I dont get confused.Ž But she was confused: She believed assurances that Trump would do as expected. Last Friday, Trumps Treasury Department put out a report saying, The Chinese currency generally moved against the dollar in a direction that should, all else equal, help reduce Chinas trade surplus with the United States.Ž This is true: The dollar has fallen nearly 10 percent against the yuan since Trump took of“ce. But on Monday, Trump took the opposite position. Russia and China are playing the Currency Devaluation game as the U.S. keeps raising interest rates. Not acceptable!Ž he tweeted. Last month, Trump announced, Well be coming out of Syria, like, very soon.Ž Now the White House was back to saying there was no timetable for an American withdrawal. Last week, Trump signaled an imminent missile attack in Syria, saying via Twitter that Russia should get readyŽ to shoot down nice and new and smartŽ missiles. Criticized for telegraphing the strike, he then said the attack might be not so soon at allŽ „ a day before the attack. He said he was prepared to sustain this response,Ž but Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said it was a one-time shot.Ž The president has similarly reversed or contradicted himself this week on quitting the TPP trade pact and his justi“cation for “ring former FBI Director James Comey. On North Korea, he said he would meet with Kim and raised the possibility he wouldnt „ in the same passage. Now, Republicans in Congress are risking a constitutional crisis because of their beliefŽ that Trump wont “re Mueller: Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa): I dont think he would.Ž Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (Utah): I do not believe the president would.Ž Sen. John Cornyn (Tex.): I dont think thats going to happen.Ž They think they know Trumps mind, huh? So did Nikki Haley.

The City Commission will meet for its 6 p.m. regular meeting Tuesday and review a land rezone and apartment master plan that would have 64 unit multi-family development near Toledo Blade and Kenvil Drive. The apartment complex would be called Kenido Blade ApartmentsŽ which combines the two street names it will be on. The commission approved the “rst reading of the plans at its last commission meeting. The “ve-member board will review and possibly approve changing a zone from residential single familyŽ to residential multi-familyŽ for the 4.88 acres of land. At the last meeting, Commissioner Debbie McDowell was hesitant about the rezone and ultimate voted against it. I agree we need housing and I know we need apartments, this is a very big need,Ž she said at the April 10 meeting. But the people in that area bought their property knowing its single family zoned. There is another complex that they are perfectly aware is coming. There (were) perfect opportunities in the past to have it rezoned and for whatever reason it wasnt done.Ž While the other commissioners said they understood her viewpoint, they believed with the amount the city is growing housing is needed more than ever. Its an extremely easy decision for me,Ž Commissioner Chris Hanks said at the April 10 meeting. Its so needed and goes with the ”ow. I know some of the residents may be put off by it, but you have to look at the city as a whole and the multi-family homes are extremely needed.Ž The commissioners will also review creating a Historical and Cultural Preservation Advisory board. The idea was brought up during conversations on Warm Mineral Springs, which is on historic land. The board is intended to serve as an information resource to and advise the City Commission on ways to protect, conserve, enhance and raise public awareness of the citys cultural and historic resourcesŽ according to the ordinance.

It was sophomore Maddie Baker who was the pitching star on Senior Night, going the distance while allowing the Tritons just four hits, walking two and striking out eight. Maddie came out and bulldogged tonight,ŽNorth Port coach Dennis Bell said. Everything was working. Her changeup messed with their batters the whole game. We got some timely hits, sacri“ced girls over, and we scored the runs that we needed to get the victory. Its a positive, especially on Senior Night where were celebrating Roshana and Cortney at their last home game. Its a great victory to go into Tuesday against Fort Myers. I cant expect any more.Ž The Bobcats scored “rst in the bottom of the second inning after loading the bases with two outs on a walk, an in“eld single, and an error. Catcher Jassmin Rush then lifted a short ”y ball into right “eld that fell in between second baseman Georgia Waddell and right “elder Erinn Pratt for a two-run single. Mariner (16-9) got one back in the top of the third as Liberty Woodley beat out an in“eld single and scored on a double by Hannah Holloway. North Port (5-13) answered with a run in the bottom of the frame. Velloza led off with a walk, moved up on a ground out by Ashley Nelson, and came home on a single by Kylie Murray to make it 3-1. The Bobcats squandered a bases loaded with one out opportunity in the bottom of the fourth, but loaded the bases again in the bottom of the “fth with nobody out on consecutive singles by Senna, Murray, and Nadia Playter. Julianna Ortiz hit a ground ball to short, but Senna beat the throw to the plate to make it 4-1. Holloway led off the top of the sixth with a home run over the left “eld fence to cut the de“cit to 4-2, but after giving up a single to Yasmine Haley, Baker settled down and got out of the inning without any further damage. The Bobcat pitcher then set down the Tritons in order in the top of the seventh, striking out the last two batters. Hopefully we can go into Fort Myers on Tuesday and shock Southwest Florida,Ž Bell said. If we go in there and beat them, theyll be talking about North Port for the rest of the year. The girls can do it.Ž Weve got quite a few sophomores and juniors and our JV team did well. Were going to be talented for the next three or four years, so look out for North Port.ŽNORTH PORT 4, MARINER 2Mariner 001 001 0 2 4 0 North Port 021 010 X 4 8 0 WP Maddie Baker LP Hannah Holloway.

LOCAL SPORTS PUNTA GORDA „ Charlotte baseball coach Lavell Cudjo was wondering when his team was “nally going to put it all together. Friday, against a very good IMG Academy team, the Tarpons came pretty darn close. Garrett Dunson scored twice on two hits and stole home, and Dustin Thomas went 3 for 3 in the eighth-spot in the order to help Kyle Machado to a 6-3 victory in a non-district contest. Machado was also helped by his defense, which made several tough plays in the in“eld while playing errorless ball, as opposed to IMG, which committed three errors and allowed seven runners to steal bases. We needed to “nd a way to have a complete game. Our pitcher was dominant, we did well in situational hitting and leadoff hitting. All around, we played a very good game,Ž Cudjo said. Charlotte (14-7) got off the blocks fast. Dunson and Mikey Thomas led off the game with singles, with Dunson coming home on a throwing error by the catcher to make it 1-0 in the “rst off IMG starter Billy Underwood. The bottom of the Charlotte lineup did the job. Cade Reich and Dustin Thomas started the second with singles. Two batters later, Dunson tripled down the right “eld line to score two, then stole home on a botched suicide squeeze attempt as the pitch bounced “ve feet in front of home plate. Bryce Hayse would later score Mikey Thomas with an RBI single to make it 5-0. We “nally broke through. Most of us havent been consistent. We havent been squaring the ball up and we did that tonight,Ž Dunson said. We need to go into districts playing our best ball and hopefully tonight is the start of that.Ž IMG (13-9) pecked away, but Machado was too tough, allowing just three runs on “ve hits while walking only one with seven strikeouts. Leyton Barry had two hits, an RBI and a run scored to lead the Ascenders, who cut the lead to 6-3 on backto-back doubles from Pat Romeri and Nico Carrigan in the seventh, but a tiring Machado was able to shut the door. Reich had two hits and scored twice. Dustin Thomas gave the Tarpons insurance with an RBI double in the sixth as the Tarpons lashed out 10 hits. We wanted to get back to hitting and tonight we got the bats going. It was a great time for it,Ž Cudjo said. Every time Kyle goes out to pitch we have a chance. He threw well tonight and stayed ahead of the count and we helped him out early.ŽCHARLOTTE 6, IMG 3IMG 010 001 1 … 3 5 3 Charlotte 140 010 x … 6 10 0 Billy Underwood, Ben Zimmerman (5) and Tucker Mitchell, Kyle Machado and Aaron Martin.

Page 12 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSToday is Earth Day. Humane Societies are very supportive of creating and maintaining a clean environment, as this special day is devoted to. There is a lot of newscasts and articles on how to achieve a healthier earth. One issue that comes to mind not only helps the environment, but also helps us to be better neighbors. That is not allowing your dog to poop in someone elses yard. And if he/she does have an accident, you should have a baggie with you to pick it up. Someone said that picking up dog poop is like changing diapers. We only agree to take care of our own kids. In other words, no one appreciates picking up poop that has been left in the yard by someone elses dog. Believe me, I have two dogs totaling 280 pounds and that is as much poop as I wish to handle. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) estimates that there are 80 million dogs in the USA. Imagine what a lucrative business selling pooper scoopers could be. Actually there are very important reasons why we all should pick up after our dogs. They include avoiding contamination, spread of disease and odor control. And what about just being a responsible pet owner, and again, a good neighbor? It really is not an expensive chore at all. Although you can buy quality made poop bags pretty inexpensively, grocery sacks and bread wrappers work quite well, especially with smaller dogs. Just put your hand inside the bag, cover the pile, pick it up, turn the bag inside out, tie it and dispose of it. Carrying some disinfectant hand wipes may be a good idea just in case. Dogs like mine require a scoop shovel, a claw rake and a garbage can. Stepping in a mess left by someone elses dog, or your own for that matter, is a real mood changer. Flat-soled shoes are bad enough, but have you ever had to clean it off the bottom of rigid-souled sneakers? We are not up north where winters force many dog owners to wait until spring and then hold a gigantic poop-scoop-athon. That can sometimes be a two-day event. It does however; seem that some people living here in Southwest Florida still operate with that same theory, even without the snow. Sadly, if this describes your neighbors, Scoop the poop for Earth Day Suncoast Humane SocietyPhil Snyder grilling out can be about as delightful as picnicking next to a hog farm. Failure to pick up after your dog is a serious problem, and it is a people problem. This includes your own yard, the property of others, and even at a doggie exercise park. In fact, the top complaint voiced at Suncoast Humane Society from frequenters of Charlotte Countys Doggie Park, is owners failure to pick up after their dogs. It takes just a few irresponsible dog owners to ruin it for the many responsible people trying to give their dogs some quality fun time. After all, we shouldnt blame our dogs for doing what they have to do. It is the nature of dogs to keep their immediate area clean, especially if they have a very small yard. If allowed they will choose their favorite potty stations in someone elses yard. It is our responsibility to keep that from happening. This may seem like a small way to help the environment but when people are peering out their window at you and your dog, it can be very big. So lets be responsible pet owners, good neighbors and guardians of our earth. Keep Scooping the Poop. Phil Snyder is the executive director of the Suncoast Humane Society. He has more than 40 years of experience in animal care, control and welfare, including 15 years with the Humane Society of the United States.

Punta Gorda residents voices have been heard „ to some extent „ when it comes to the citys future growth. The City Council has requested staff to solicit proposals from outside planning “rms to review and update the Citizens Master Plan. The Citizens Master Plan was formed in 2005 after extensive citizen input, as well as meetings with community leaders, public presentations, workshops and design sessions, according to Team Punta Gorda. The councils decision to consider outside “rm proposals stems from resident comments at a recent community meeting. Mayor Rachel Keesling said the city is going to have to take baby steps to incorporate growth in the city but unless something changes, the people that develop private property wont see Punta Gorda as their market. I think we are a victim of our current demographic,Ž she said. If a shred and an update to the Citizens Master Plan can get some positive energy moving (between the city and its residents), then Im for it.Ž Contention between the community and the city has been an issue when it comes to progress, according to Vice Mayor Wein. We can disagree. We can get what we want in some ways,Ž he said, and (yet in) other ways, we need to go into compromise a little bit. We need to start de“ning (ourselves), and with the branding process, thats really what that process is about ... to “nd out where we want to be.Ž Punta Gorda resident Julie Moriarty supports the idea of growth in the city, not only to accommodate the retired residents but also the residents that were born in Punta Gorda. What do we tell them (the locally born residents)?,Ž she said at the April 18 council meeting. Upon graduation from high school or college, do we hand them a diploma and a bus ticket and say come back when youve made it? This city should be more than just a reward for a life well-lived elsewhere.Ž Moriarty said the city should provide a natural process of growth, including a living wage (if possible), affordable housing, as well as a city council and staff that represents them too. Most importantly,Ž she said, the understanding that those of us who move here into this very special city will come here to be a part of this unique city that will ”ourish only if we allow it.Ž Wein said that the city is trying to associate who Punta Gorda is and how it will go forward. We could be like North Port and mushroom, he said. We could evolve into something we want in a more orderly manner or we could just stay where we are and change absolutely nothing. But even if we stay where we are, I “nd that we have people that say that they want nothing to change but they really do; they want lots of other accrucements to be added.Ž Wein believes the city and its residents have a good idea as to where the city is at in some respects but that there are other respects that are a little fuzzy. I think we need to de“ne ourselves more. Once we get to that point, what do we want to be? Thats the dif“cult part,Ž he said.

Imagine School highlights its arts. Seepage 11. The new Fin Sushi & Grill offers a 3,000square-ft urban experience.Seepage 12.The closing is the main event.Ž Thats when the buyers and sellers traditionally sit down with their Realtors and the title agent (aka closing agent) to formalize the home sale. First, the buyers are called into the conference room to sign their paperwork. If there is a lender involved, or the buyers have questions, this can take an hour or more. The buyers then return to the lobby and the sellers are called in to complete their paperwork. Once the paperwork is completed, the title agent leaves to make copies of the paperwork for each party. If there is a lender involved, the paperwork is transmitted to that lender for approval. I have been in closings where that step took hours, though that was out of the norm. Once the approval comes through, the lender disburses the money to the title agent who then disburses the funds in accordance with the settlement statement. There are customer-focused lenders that disburse the funds quickly. There are others who only disburse the funds at preset intervals during the day. That can delay the closing for several hours. And this is what happens when everything goes right. I remember a Friday afternoon closing where things went the other way. The papers were signed, the lender issued their “nal approval, and the lender had supposedly wired the funds to the title agent. The out-of-town buyers were ready to unload the moving van sitting in front of their new home as soon as the closing was completed. That was around noon. The lender insisted it had wired the money to the title company. But the money never showed up. Both the title company and lender were frantically exchanging calls and attempting to trace the money trail, 5 p.m. rolled around and the banks closed.

In metro areas such as Denver, buyers are rushing to close a deal before mortgage rates get too high. In Dallas, some are embracing longer commutes to “nd homes they can afford. And in places such as Los Angeles, where the number of homes for sale is down sharply from a year ago, sellers routinely receive multiple offers. While still low by historical standards, long-term mortgage rates have been mostly climbing this year. The average weekly rate on a 30-year “xed-rate mortgage edged up to 4.42 percent last week. It was 3.95 percent at the start of this year. A mere extra half percentage point or so can boost monthly payments and add tens of thousands of dollars extra in interest over the life of the typical 30-year loan. At a time when home prices are rising faster than incomes in many parts of the country, that could be enough to shut out some would-be buyers who make the median income in cities such as Seattle and Los Angeles. First-time buyers already face signi“cant hurdles to homeownership because starter homes have seen the steepest price increases as well as sharpest decline in the number of homes on the market. Higher mortgage rates only further limit what buyers can afford. The combination of low inventory, rising prices and higher mortgage rates is expected to weigh on the U.S. housing market this year, with several economists and housing experts forecasting U.S. home sales will be ”at or only slightly higher than in 2017. Weve been talking Road to homeownership gets rockier this spring as rates riseBy ALEX VEIGA and LARRY FENNASSOCIATED PRESSRATES | 2

It wasnt until later that day the poor buyer was able to complete the closing and move in. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to streamline the closing and make more ef“cient use of your time. Thats important because whether you are a buyer or seller, its likely you are in the process of moving and have a lot to do. First, ask your Realtor if you can pre-sign the closing documents before the closing date. Some lenders require you to sign the documents the day of the closing, but most do not. Setting up an appointment for your pre-signing eliminates the waiting-around time cited above. If there is an issue, it can be discovered and resolved without delaying the closing. Second, understand that there is no need to be physically present for the closing. The old days of buyers bringing a cashiers check and sellers being paid by a cashiers check are long gone due to rampant counterfeiting of these instruments. Today buyers typically wire money directly from their bank to the title agent, and the title agent wires the proceeds directly into the sellers account. This is preferable because the buyers money is available instantly. There is no 10-day hold on the check. Third, schedule the closing so that the following day is a business day. If an issue arises that cannot be resolved on the day of closing, the resolution process can resume the following morning. Happy Closing!

The account manager made 11 offers since his search began in September, but lost out to rivals offering more money. As mortgage rates started rising, so did Zolmans anxiety about being able to afford to buy. The rates kept going up, and the more the rates kept going up, the less house you can buy,Ž said Zolman, 41. And the less house you can buy in this market, thats not good. You have to be able to pony up the cash.Ž Zolman eventually bought a newly built, three-bedroom townhome for $370,000. He got approved for a 30-year “xed-rate loan just under 4.7 percent. Hes not in the clear yet, however. He cant lock in his rate until midMay, within the 120-day window before construction on the house is completed. And if rates go higher by then? It is what it is,Ž Zolman said. You just have to pay it.Ž For others, rising mortgage rates „ the 30-year rate hit a four-year high of 4.46 percent in March „ make it tougher to bridge the widening gap between home prices and incomes. Cities such as Denver, Los Angeles, Miami and Seattle have become less and less affordable, particularly for millennials and others looking to purchase their “rst home. Consider that the national median home price is $225,264. That works out to 3.8 times the U.S. median income of $59,039, according to the most recent annual income “gures from the U.S. Census and home price data from real estate information company Attom Data Solutions. The same price-to-income ratio was 3.3 back in 2000. The affordability equation is less daunting for the buyer who earns the median wage in Pittsburgh, where a median-priced home at $125,000 is about 2.2 times the metro areas median income of $56,063. The same goes for buyers in St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, Baltimore and other cities where the median home price is less than three times the median income. By comparison, the home price-to-income gap becomes a yawning chasm in several California cities like Los Angeles, where a median-priced home at $605,000 is more than nine times the metropolitan areas median income of $65,950. Rising housing prices have widened the home price-income gap to “ve times or more in Seattle, Denver, Portland, Oregon, and Reno, Nevada, among other cities. When you look at the coastlines „ Seattle, San Francisco, New York, places in the Northeast „ you have a lot of those “rst-time homebuyers who are now being priced out of the market,Ž said Nick Bailey, CEO of Century 21 Real Estate. Theres a point at which the average “rst-time homebuyer just cant compete.Ž At this point, rising mortgage rates account for about a third of the increase in the typical homebuyers monthly payment, while the pickup in home prices makes up about two-thirds of that increased payment. At least so far, rising prices have been a much bigger factor,Ž Hale said. And the reason prices are rising is that balance between supply and demand: Plentiful demand; not enough inventory.Ž The supply of homes for sale fell 8.1 percent in February from a year earlier to 1.59 million. It would take just 3.4 months to snap up the supply of available homes at the current sales rate, down from an average of 6 months since 2000. Last year was the fastest housing market, in terms of days on market, that weve ever seen,Ž said Nela Richardson, chief economist at the real estate company Redfin. Homes are now selling five days faster than last year, she added. Many current homeowners who locked in historically low rates in recent years may be reluctant to sell if it means taking on a higher mortgage rate on their next home. That could further diminish the inventory of homes for sale nationwide. Even if rates dont move much, buyers can expect prices to keep climbing this year would-be buyers vastly outnumber the homes up for sale. A strong job market has helped boost con“dence among many Americans that its a good time to buy a home. Millennials, the largest generation since the baby boomers, are reaching peak homebuyer age, adding to the crop of would-be buyers this spring. The inventory crunch is there and its really acute for “rst-time buyers,Ž said Cheryl Young, senior economist at Trulia. Its de“nitely a sellers market.Ž Home sales have been uneven so far this year. Among existing homes, sales rose 3 percent in February to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.54 million, according to the National Association of Realtors. That gain followed sales declines in December and January. Overall, home prices are 6.3 percent higher than their peak in July 2006. Prices plunged when the housing bubble burst, hitting bottom in February 2012. Since then, prices have rebounded 46.5 percent. To cope with rising prices in Dallas, “rst-time buyers like Rob Chilton and his wife broadened their search area, even if it lengthened their commutes to work The couple, who cut back on dining out and other luxuries the past few years to set aside money for a down payment, bought a three-bedroom, two-bath “xer-upper for $335,000 in February. Thats $15,000 below the asking price, but $45,000 more than what the couple felt they could comfortably afford. Houses that used to be comfortably in our price range three or four years ago are now out of our price range,Ž said Chilton, a music teacher. The house is also in a suburb that adds an extra 15 minutes to Chiltons wifes work commute, on top of the hour-long drive she had before. By moving a little further North, we could get a newer home in a little bit better condition in our price range,Ž said Chilton, 33. In Dallas, as in many other markets this spring, its common for sellers to receive multiple offers above their asking price. A home that hit the market recently for $215,000 drew no shortage of buyers, said James Williams, broker associate at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty. In the “rst weekend we had 40 showings, 10 offers with the highest offer being $15,000, or 7 percent, over the list price,Ž Williams said. Theres de“nitely a shortage of inventory under $300,000, and when those homes do come on the market its a frenzy.ŽRISINGFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOIn this April 7 photo, Chad Zolman, left, joins his 5-year-old son, Quinten, in standing at the site of their yet-to-be-constructed new home in Castle Rock, Colorado. The rates kept going up, and the more the rates kept going up, the less house you can buy,Ž said Zolman, 41. And the less house you can buy in this market, thats not good. You have to be able to pony up the cash.Ž Zolman eventually bought a newly built, three-bedroom townhome for $370,000.

The Sun /Sunday, April 22, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 15 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 3 Its tough out there for would-be homeowners. Theyre facing rising mortgage rates, higher home prices and a shortage of available houses in many markets. Plus, recent changes to the tax law do them no favors. So what can a potential homebuyer do?Get perspectiveHigher mortgage rates may feel like salt in the wound for those shopping in tight markets. Rates have been rising since late last year. The average rate on a 30-year, “xed-rate mortgage hit a high of 4.45 percent last month. Thats its highest since 2014, but still well below where its been historically. The fours are not a terrible place to be,Ž said Skylar Olsen, director of economic research at Zillow. So what does this cost the homebuyer? If the median home price in the US is $225,264, then over the life of a 30-year loan at 4.5 percent youd pay $148,506 in interest. At 5 percent, it rises to $168,057 in interest. Thats a difference of $19,551. But for perspective, consider the $229,849 someone would pay over the life of the loan if the rate was 6.5 percent, where it was hovering the summer of 2007 before the recession hit. Thats more than $81,000 over the “rst example. These all assume a 20 percent down payment. What can you do to cope? Your credit will largely determine the rate you get, so keep that clean. Lock in your rate when you are ready. Rates vary day to day and timing it well is more luck than skill, Olsen said.Hunt hardIts not a market for the faint of heart. The median home price right now is up 7.6 percent from last year and up 15 percent compared to the year before that, according to Zillow. And compared to three years ago? Up nearly 22 percent. These price hikes, more than higher rates, make the costs prohibitive for some buyers. And inventory is tight because homes are selling so quickly. If you are struggling with the fact there arent a lot of options, you have to be looking every day,Ž she said. And move fast if you do “nd something you like.Be preparedIts even more important in a challenging real estate market to make sure you have the basics covered: check your credit, know what you can afford and come to the hunt preapproved for a mortgage. Homes in many markets are receiving multiple offers, so be ready to compete. Consider ways to sweeten your deal: a bigger down payment, more earnest money or a shorter closing time may give you an edge. You also may also want to consider an escalation clause, which allows a buyer to say they will pay a certain amount over any higher offer up to a ceiling. And cash is still king. An all-cash offer means there are no appraisals or mortgages to slow (or possibly derail) the deal. If you can, consider asking for help. Olsen said that in pre-recession days, about 18 percent of buyers accepted a gift from family or friends. Now its about a quarter.Help along the wayIf youre a novice, consider attending a “rst-time homebuyer class or meeting with a HUD housing counselor, who can provide free or low-cost advice. They can walk you through the process and help you assess what you can afford. They can also alert potential homebuyers to assistance programs in their area, said Karen Hoskins of nonpro“t NeighborWorks America. There are a variety of programs that help people with down payments, closing costs or other services. Finally, a good real estate agent can help buyers craft a deal and assist with their knowledge of the market. For example, Olsen notes that on the West Coast its more common to price a home low with the assumption offers will come in over asking, whereas on the East Coast its more acceptable to make an offer below asking.The tax manWhat about taxes? Its true, tax laws are not as generous as they once were for homeowners, but the changes dont affect everyone equally. Homeowners can deduct interest paid on the “rst $750,000 of a loan for a newly purchased “rst or second home. That is down from the prior limit of $1 million. And homeowners have also lost the unlimited federal deduction for state and local income and sales tax. Taxpayers will now be allowed to deduct only up to $10,000 in combined property and state and local income taxes, so that hurts people in areas with heavy tax burdens.Stay focusedHomeownership isnt for everyone but if you decide to stay in the hunt, keep saving as its an appreciating market in many areas. And try not to get lost in the mania. The usual rules still apply: dont buy more house than you can afford and think about the practicality of it as a place to live, not an investment. We have already seen the hard lessons people have learned when they assume everything is moving up and there will be no pitfalls or crashes,Ž said Bruce McClary of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. There is an investment value in homeownership but time is a big factor. Its slow and steady because there are peaks and valleys. It can be a roller coaster at times.ŽLanding the right house in a tough market for homebuyersBy SARAH SKIDMORE SELLAP PERSONAL FINANCE WRITER AP PHOTOIn this April 9 photo, Rob Chilton and his wife Saria pose for a photo in their recently purchased home in Frisco, Texas. To co pe with rising prices in Dallas, rst-time buyers like Chilton and his wife have broadened their search area, even if it lengthens their commutes to work.

Over the past 6 months, we have seen many celebrities, women and men, who have done just that. They have emerged from darkness to embrace the power of a collective voice in unison and said Me TooŽ, telling the world that they were sexually assaulted. That darkness over these brave individuals was not their own. It was cast upon them by abusers, who took away the most basic human right: the right to your own body. Abusers who knew what they were doing, preyed upon the vulnerable, and then went about their lives, leaving these survivors with guilt, shame, and fear. Many of these abusers run to brag about their latest conquestsŽ, further demonstrating that, to them, sexual assault is a sport. Finally, a movement has begun and a match has been struck. Finally, the survivors can stand together and say Me TooŽ and call out their abusers. And “ nally, people are beginning to listen. No longer will they sit in silence, embarrassed or ashamed by what theyve endured. Embrace Your VoiceŽƒ.

About a dozen people were waiting to tour the 84 Lumber tiny house at about noon Sunday at the Mid-Atlantic Home Show.

The Sun /Sunday, April 22, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 17 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 5 Q: How many price quotes should I get in re“nancing my mortgage? A: Get as many valid quotes as possible. Two or three valid ones help; 10 phony ones are worthless, or worse. Valid price quotes must meet three major conditions: € Same market timing: All quotes must be as of the same day, since mortgage lenders reset their prices every morning. Comparing As price on Monday with Bs price on Tuesday is looking for trouble. € Same transaction features: Valid price quotes are based on the same assumptions regarding the features of your transaction that affect price. These include the loan amount, property value, type of property, zip code of property, lock period, whether or not you are waiving escrow, your FICO score, and whether you are occupying the house or renting it. And on a re“nance, you must indicate whether or not you are taking any cash out of the transaction. If you dont specify all of these factors, the lender will probably assume the best so the price quote will be as low as possible. For example, if your home is a duplex, which usually commands a higher price, and you dont indicate it in soliciting a price quote, the lender will assume that it is a single-family home because that commands the lowest price. € Absence of lowballing: Even if you specify all relevant transaction features, some loan of“cers (LOs) will quote a price below the price they could actually deliver that day, a process called lowballing. The purpose is to win the bidding contest with other LOs so that you will come back. If you do come back, the lowball price quote will be explained away either by changes in the market since the original quote, or by transaction features that you neglected to mention when you solicited the original quote. Indeed, lowballing is most likely to occur with borrowers who request a price quote without specifying all the relevant transaction features that affect the price. To obtain prices on my website, shoppers must enter all the information that affects prices „ otherwise the prices dont appear. Prices are shown for each lender, they are always current, and they are received directly from each lenders pricing system, bypassing the lenders LOs. Is the zero-plus mortgage a good deal? Q: The zero-plus mortgage has no origination, underwriting or processing fees and gives the borrower a $1,000 closing credit. Will it save the borrower a bundle, as advertised? A: This question cant be answered de“nitively without knowing the interest rate charged and all the transaction features that affect the price. Nonetheless, I am quite con“dent that the answer is no because this lender is doing nothing more than giving a special name, and tying a ribbon around, a standard option that all lenders offer. To illustrate the point, I shopped my site for a 30-year “xed-rate loan of $380,000 on April 14 and was offered 16 combinations of interest rate and lender fees. These ranged from a fee of $10,485 with a rate of 3.75 percent to a credit of $22,325 at a rate of 5.625 percent. Within that distribution is another option, consisting of a rate of 4.375 percent and a credit of $1709. If I retained that rate but cut the credit to $1,000 and called it The Lenders SpecialŽ, it would have no origination, underwriting or processing fees, and it would provide a $1,000 closing credit. But it would be a rip-off rather than a bargain. Take a HECM reverse mortgage now or wait? Q: I am 62 and wont need any funds till I stop working at 65. Should I take a HECM credit line now and sit on it, or would I do better to wait three years and take it then? A: If you take a credit line now and let it sit unused, the line will grow at a rate equal to the mortgage interest rate plus the 1.25 percent mortgage insurance premium rate. If you wait three years, the initial line will be larger because you are three years older and (presumably) your house will be worth more. In working the numbers, I found that with an annual house appreciation rate of about 2.5 percent, it was a wash. If you expect appreciation to exceed 2.5 percent, you do better by waiting, and vice versa.Readers questions about mortgage shoppingBy JACK GUTTENTAGTHE MORTGAGE PROFESSOR The company has sold about two dozen of the homes since they began manufacturing them two years ago. Lumber 84 offers four models, ranging from $50,000 to $80,000; theyre all built on steel trailers. DiDomenico said the homes come fully assembled and typically have a bedroom, a fully functional kitchen, a bathroom and a dining area. In models that have a bedroom on the second ”oor, a rolling library-style ladder goes up to the loft. Standing outside the display home, Vince Roney was skeptical. He said the miniature home was just a fraction of the size of his and he wasnt sure hed have enough room to move around. Its cute, but I dont think I could sleep in it for more than a couple of nights,Ž Roney said, while his wife, Millie, was inside checking out the kitchen. Roney wondered where you can park them. Wherever you want,Ž DiDomenico said „ as long as the location is zoned accordingly, anyway, and it depends on whether the tiny home is attached to a trailer or on a foundation. Before leaving the convention center, Benita brought the rest of her family to check out the tiny home. Waiting to enter, she put her arms around her son and his wife. When momma moves in, yall cant come and visit.

The Sun /Sunday, April 22, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 21 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 9 Like a wild“re, Black Death swept through mid-14th Century Europe, killing an estimated 75 million people „ about half of the continents population. Florence, Italy, saw the bubonic plague decimate 63 percent of its population, reducing it from about 80,000 in 1348 to an estimated 25,000 to 30,000 in just two years. In the aftermath of Black Death, Europe experienced a rebirth of its culture, society and civilization based on classical Greek and Roman concepts „ the Renaissance „ according to Dr. Steven Der”er, a retired professor of archaeology from the University of Wisconsin River Falls. Basically, Europeans learned you didnt have to worry about life after death, you had to worry about the here and now.Ž In History of the Human Experience, Part 8: The Renaissance,Ž Der”er explores this 300-year period of European renewal and reawakening. The class is from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. May 9 at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, Punta Gorda. A catered lunch is included. The “ve humanities of poetry, grammar, history, moral philosophy and rhetoric were the focus of the Renaissances intellectual landscape. Two of its most important thinkers were Niccol Machiavelli and Sir Thomas More,Ž Der”er said. They more than anybody revived the ideas of the Greeks and Romans.Ž Hit hard by the plague, Florence became the epicenter of the Renaissance and was known as the Athens of the Middle Ages. Its thinkers emulated the classical Greek and Roman worlds, fostering a revival of humanism and discussions that permitted ideas to grow, innovation to occur and ultimately the invention of the scienti“c method that began changing the face of the world, according to Der”er. From Florence the Renaissance spread across Italy and throughout Europe from the 14th to the 17th Century. The diffusion of Renaissance thought was spearheaded by the House of Medici, an Italian banking family, political dynasty and later a royal house. The patriarch, Cosimo de Medici, controlled a vast patronage network the family used to become the Vaticans bankers and gain in”uence over the papacy. Because of their in”uence over the pope, the Medici family was able to commission artistic works by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and other artists depicting nature and humanity in ways that diverged from Catholic orthodoxy, Der”er said. Architectural, political, scienti“c and literary thought and practice also grew and developed during the Renaissance. Architecturally, the ”ying buttress permitted the construction of soaring cathedrals like those at Chartres, Canterbury and Autun. Early forms of democracy, such as Englands parliamentary representation of the people, began replacing the existing feudal system in politics. Da Vinci and other scientists explored and described the human bodys anatomy and invented the musket, the parachute, the ”oating dock, the newspaper and the carpenters brace among many other tools, devices and machinery. In literature, Michel de Montaigne popularized the essay as a literary genre, Edmund Spenser invented the Spenserian stanza and Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1440, encouraging authors to write in their local vernacular instead of classical Greek or Latin, thus widening the reading audience and promoting the spread of Renaissance ideas.

A handcuffed Sky Bouche appeared Saturday before Judge Willard Pope via video conference at the Marion County Jail. The Ocala Star-Banner reports a second court date was set for next month. Bouche told the newspaper he felt an adrenaline rush before Fridays shooting that quickly wore off, and he was unable to continue with his plan. Bouche faces charges including terrorism, aggravated assault with a “rearm and possession of a “rearm on school property. The shooting at Forest High School in Ocala happened on a day planned for a national classroom LEHIGH ACRES (AP) „ A 22-year-old has been found guilty of killing his aunt, her pregnant daughter and her boyfriend at their Florida home. Prosecutors say Brian Hyde used a machete to murder his aunt Dorla Pitts, 37, her daughter Starlette Pitts, 17, and her daughters boyfriend, Michael Deon Kelly Jr., 19 in their Lehigh Acres home in 2015. Starlette was six months pregnant so prosecutors added the additional murder charge for her unborn child. Authorities pulled over Hyde for driving erratically in his aunts car. A jury deliberated for nearly three hours Friday before “nding Hyde guilty of four counts of second-degree murder. ORLANDO (AP) „ Florida deputies have fatally shot a man suspected of killing an 82-year-old woman. Orange County Sheriffs of“cials say James Bauduy fatally shot Elfriede Asendorf in her home Thursday and then stole her daughters car. Authorities believe the daughter is Baudays ex-girlfriend. Two deputies say they approached 48-year-old Bauduy on Friday but he refused comply with commands so the deputies “red their weapons. Sheriff Jerry Demings said the deputies believed the man was armed. The sheriff did not say whether they recovered a weapon. Sergeant Bruce Vail and Corporal Randolph Hovland have been reassigned to administrative duties pending an investigation which is standard protocol. | HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE STATEwalkout to protest gun violence and left one person injured. MIAMI (AP) „ Parker Lake got sick of the rat race. Sick of working in a cubicle. Sick of commuting on Miamis mean streets. Sick of being overweight from sitting at a desk or in traf“c jams. So Lake quit his unful“lling job, sold his car and moved to a house on the Little River. Road warrior no more, he paddles to two new jobs on a stand-up paddleboard. The rude drivers who used to accompany him on his travels have been replaced by manatees, dolphins, pelicans and spotted eagle rays. Hes lost 45 pounds. Hes gained peace of mind. I thought to myself, Im spinning my wheels in more ways than one. Im not happy with the commute, Im not happy being a salesman,Ž he said. Now I “nd myself ful“lled. The difference in pay is not insigni“cant but I “gure Im paying to be happy.Ž On Thursday, Lake paddled three miles home from his part-time job as a tour guide. He paused at Bird Key, where a great blue heron launched from the trees. As the wind turned brisk and churned the Intracoastals waters, Lake balanced on his 121/2-foot bamboo Riviera Ron House board and gazed at the downtown Miami skyline. Then he headed up the river, which gets progressively grittier the farther west you go. He passed yachts parked behind luxurious homes, then helped construction workers fetch a “shing pole that had dropped in the water. He stroked onward past a ”ock of orange-beaked ibises, empty warehouses, run-down apartment buildings, a homeless man living under a bridge, walls covered with graf“ti, trash ”oating on the surface. Paddling to and from work, he can see and hear the cars on surrounding roads and bridges. Im not part of that anymore and I feel great,Ž he said. Lakes other job is as a security guard at the Eden Roc hotel in Miami Beach. Thats a 12-mile, two-hour paddle from where he lives. He carries his work clothes and shoes in a dry bag backpack. He once paddled over a hammerhead shark on his route. This is a mode of transportation that I think more people will be choosing in the future,Ž he said. ƒ Youve seized the day by the time you get to your job.Ž Lake is adding mileage to his commutes whenever possible to prepare for Crossing For A Cure, a June 17 fundraising trek from the Bahamas to Dania Beach. Its a 61-mile paddle that will take 8-10 hours. Paddleboarders are raising money for cystic “brosis research. Theres a degree of discomfort in this journey but it will be over in about eight hours,Ž Lake said. Kids with cystic “brosis live with pain all the time.ŽOver Miami traffic, a man now travels with dolphinsBy LINDA ROBERTSONMIAMI HERALD PEDRO PORTAL /MIAMI HERALD VIA APParker Lake, commutes to work Thursday, April 6, on his paddleboard along Biscayne Bay.

You want to keep it all for yourself, but that never lasts long.New sushi sensationChef Chen and his wife, Aline think much bigger than some little fast-casual sushi counter. Customer acclaim seems to con“rm that they were right to think that way. After “ve days in business, Aline said, We didnt expect to be this busy so soon!Ž But they appear to be equal to the task. Their new Fin Sushi & Grill took Port Charlottes Peachland Promenade by surprise with a 3,000-square-foot urban experience. Theyve spared no expense on glowing underlit bars, full-table service from a professional and friendly staff, and silver-bound menus that have to weigh at least 5 pounds. The menu, big enough to rival Kumos lists raw, cooked and special rolls, as well as la carte sushi and sashimi; hibachi (without show), teriyaki, tempura and katsu entrees; and Japanese soba and udon noodles, soups, salads and appetizers. Originally from China and New York, where his family operated a sushi restaurant for two decades, Chen has rolled sushi since he was 15. In Fort Myers, he was executive sushi chef at the 7,000-square-foot, all-you-can-eat-sushi phenom GinZa But when the couple found the perfect space off Peachland, they moved to Port Charlotte to launch Fin. Fin Sushi & Grill ($-$$), 941-666-6686, 24123 Peachland Blvd. (between The UPS Store and Planet Fitness), is open Monday to Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday to 11 p.m., Sunday noon to 10 p.m. Farming heritage feeds Fort Ogden Its been a long time since there was a place to eat in Fort Ogden. Now that the homey Sunny Day Bistro is open, local residents, a couple hundred employees at the nearby Walmart Distribution Center and all the traf“c on U.S. 17 have a cozy, 30-seat spot to pile into for coffee, breakfast and lunch. Co-owner brothers J. C. and Jordan Deriso with wives Kayla and Lauren saw an opportunity to serve the community in what had for years been an eatery wasteland. Not the best cooks in the world and already busy with their civil engineering company, the brothers wisely called on their sister, Jillian Beeles whod been cooking at home since she was 6. She also graduated from culinary school at Orlandos Le Cordon Bleu, competed for Student Chef of the Year and Best Young Chef, and cheffed for Boca Grandes prestigious Gasparilla Inn & Club for two years. It was a dream job learning from executive chef Seth Shipley and sous-chef Tom Haggerty at the inn, but the threehour daily commute was killing her. After becoming her brothers right hand in the new eatery, she said, with typical modesty, I was very fortunate to learn under such accomplished chefs. And my brothers are trusting me with a lot!Ž Of course, none of this will surprise Arcadia, where the Deriso name is well-known. Three generations of the family live and work together on a 12-acre Arcadia farm, where the children raised cows, pigs and chickens, understanding exactly where their food came from. Though homeschooled, the siblings became recognized in local school sports, Future Farmers of America, 4-H and county fairs. For Jillian, whos always ravenous but blessed with a ranchers metabolism, cooking was the logical thing to do. Homeschooling six kids, my mom was a very busy lady. So, when I wanted something to eat (which was often), Id make it myself,Ž she said. Then my siblings started asking me to make them something, too. I went from making lunch for myself and my siblings to making dinner to help my mom.Ž Now Jillian will be cooking for more. The Sunny Day menu offers coffees and breakfast; house-made gourmet paninis, subs, ”atbreads, soups and salads; and in-house baked goods from focaccia to scones, biscotti, cookies, muf“ns and pastries. I take my heritage of farming into its “nal destination, the kitchen,Ž said Jillian, whos still raising 20 calves in her spare time. Sunny Day Bistro ($), 863-993-BREW, 7038 S.W. Liverpool Road, is open Monday to Saturday 5:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Farewell to Snook the CatThe 12-year-old feline celebrity from Snooks Bayside Bar & Grill „ Englewoods own hidden gem in Royal Palm Marina „ has granted the Sun another rare interview. Q: Snook, you havent been at the bar lately. Did something scare you away? A: Am I ever scared of anything, even dogs six times my size? Was I scared when I fell in the drink and Billy Lillia had to “sh me out? Was I scared when Denise TrentMorrow and Billy left me, to go feed the National Guard after Hurricane Matthew? Q : Well, no, now that you mention it. Youre a cat and a half. A: Exactly. Look, weve known each other for a while, you and me, and youve given me cat treats. So, Ill tell you whats what. Im retiring with Denise and Billy, who wont be at Snooks anymore, either. Send restaurant and bar news and recommendations to columnist Sue Wade at suewade47@aol.com.

Feeling Fit PORT CHARLOTTE € PUNTA GORDA € NORTH PORT € ENGLEWOOD € ARCADIA SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2018 A WEEKLY SUN PUBLICATION WWW.FEELINGFIT.COM DanMEARNSCOLUMNIST Health & HopeA couple of weeks ago, we asked Port Charlotte Dietitian and Nutritionist Paula Allison to comment on a WebMD (webmd.com) list of foods to keep on hand so youll always have something healthy to eat. She talked about turkey, salsa, hummus, seltzer/mineral water, kale, eggs and 100 percent fruit juice. Here are some more recommended foods: Plain yogurt. PlainŽ is the key word when discussing yogurt. A single serving of ”avored yogurt contains three times the amount of sugar as plain yogurt,Ž said Allison. Youre better off adding some fresh (or frozen) berries and nuts for less sugar, more “ber and nutrients. Also, full-fat yogurt will stave off hunger pangs better than low-fat yogurt, which may help you to lose weight.Ž Indeed. WebMD says people who eat yogurt are less likely to be obese or have heart disease. and full-fat yogurt is better for that than low-fat. Eat it with fruit or granola,Ž the website advises, or use it instead of sour cream to lighten up desserts and stews.Ž Celery. Celery is rich in vitamin K, and it also contains folate, vitamin A, potassium, vitamin C and dietary “ber,Ž Allison said.

But many people may be unaware that carbon dioxide also has the potential to affect ocean environments. Carbon dioxide is added to the atmosphere whenever fossil fuels are burned. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Earth can handle naturally occurring carbon dioxide that enters the atmosphere and is stored and reduced in soil, through plants, trees and the ocean. However, the burning of fossil fuels adds carbon to the atmosphere faster than natural processes can remove it, causing a number of problems. Excessive carbon dioxide levels contribute to the lowering of the pH levels of the seas all over the world. Carbon dioxide reacts with seawater to form carbonic acid. This makes seawater more acidic, and marine life is paying the price. Its hard to visualize the risk of ocean acidi“cation because the effects are occurring underwater where they are not immediately realized. The Smithsonians Ocean Portal offers that, in the past 200 years alone, ocean water has become 30 percent more acidic faster than any known change in ocean chemistry in the last 50 million years. Although some ocean species are adept at “nding ways to adapt to changing water conditions, ocean acidi“cation is expected to have wide scale negative impacts on ocean ecosystems. A chemical balance is required for many components of life, and even subtle changes can lead to problems with chemical communication, reproduction and growth. Acidi“cation is making it dif“cult for shelled animals to build new shells and homes. The acidity can even cause more hydrogen ions to form in the water, leading to existing shells dissolving as well. Shell“sh are only the beginning, as many other marine animals rely on oysters, clams, plankton, sea urchins, and corals for food and habitats. As they begin to become less viable due to acidi“cation, a trickle-down effect among other species occurs „ eventually impacting humans. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association says research suggests that ocean acidi“cation could severely impact Ocean acidification affects ecosystemsPROVIDED BY MCC PHOTO PROVIDEDOcean acidication can prevent coral from forming and actually dissolve existing calcication.OCEAN | 2April 22 is Earth Day, an annual opportunity to celebrate the natural world and get involved in shortand long-term efforts to protect the environment. Here are “ve ways to celebrate. 1. Volunteer. Many neighborhoods and communities around the country host volunteer clean-ups to honor Earth Day. Find one in your area or organize your own: gather some friends, some sturdy garbage bags and pairs of work gloves, and head out to a park or the shore of a local waterway for a clean-up. 2. Enjoy nature. Get outside and enjoy nature. Even if you arent an experienced hiker, there are plenty of tools to make getting outdoors easy, such as wearable tech, which can support your adventure. One option is Casios ProTrek PRW3510Y-8, which has triple sensor technology, including a compass, thermometer, altimeter and barometer, allowing you to track your surroundings as you explore them. Featuring Tough Solar Power, it can be charged by sunlight or ”orescent light, making it an eco-friendly choice. 3. Plant a tree. Trees provide shade and food for people and a habitat for birds and other wildlife. Whats more, they produce oxygen for people to inhale, as well as sequester CO2. Trees also reduce polluting runoff by intercepting water. In short, we need trees! Celebrate Earth Day by planting one. Each year, you can watch it mature and grow. 4. Reduce waste. The land and ocean have become saturated with plastics and other trash. Get into the habit of reducing waste by recycling and reusing items as much as possible. Take a look at the footprint you create with your plastic consumption and find ways to improve your habits. Bring a reusable bag to the grocery store. Buying a drink? Dont use a straw. Getting takeout? Ask the restaurant to hold the plastic silverware. 5. Update your technologies. Outdated tech often contains harmful elements that can hurt the environment, such as lead paint or mercury. Check out newer models that meet international standards like The Minamata Convention on Mercury. For example, Casio Lampfree Projectors combine a laser, a ”uorescent element and LED light to deliver a hybrid light source that lasts up to 20,000 hours while sustaining a high brightness. Because these projectors are mercury-free, it removes the need to replace hazardous and expensive bulbs. This Earth Day, celebrate a healthy planet with environmental stewardship at home and in your community.5 ways to celebrate Earth DayProvided by STATEPOINT PHOTOS PROVIDEDAs more and more people, businesses and governments have embraced eco-friendly lifestyles and practices, its never been easier for men and women to make a positive impact on the planet. One of the simplest yet most effective ways to make such an impact is to look for ways to reduce waste, which often involves reusing materials and products that otherwise might be discarded. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, producing new items requires substantial amounts of materials and energy. Such products may require the extraction of raw materials from the earth before they can be fabricated and transported to places where they will ultimately be sold. By resolving to reuse products, consumers can greatly reduce the impact their purchases have on the planet. Why reduce and reuse?

By reusing items, consumers can decrease demand for new products, thereby reducing the pollution created when harvesting the resources necessary to produce those items. € Emissions: Once harvested, raw materials are then turned into products. The process of transforming these materials into products can produce greenhouse gas emissions. According to Livescience.com, greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide trap heat and warm the globe, producing a host of potentially harmful consequences for the planet and its inhabitants. € Finances: Reducing and reusing has “nancial perks, namely the low prices of recycled items compared to brand new items. In addition, reusing everyday items, such as coffee mugs, instead of buying new items each day can add up to sizable savings over time. Repurposing clothing, such as using once fashionable T-shirts as workout gear, also can be a great way to save money. How to reduce and reuse: Just like there are myriad bene“ts to reducing and reusing, there many different ways for consumers to reduce waste and reuse items. € Shop for previously used items. Whether consumers are shopping for items for their homes or for new wardrobes, their options abound in regard to previously used items. Homeowners can work with contractors who have experience in working with reclaimed materials, while also visiting antique shops or used furniture stores when furnishing their homes. When clothes shopping, consumers can visit consignment shops that sell like-new items at reduced prices. € Pay attention to packaging. One of the biggest contributors to unnecessary consumer waste is p ackaging. Packaging is often made of raw materials, and heavily packaged items therefore require the use of more raw materials than items with less packaging. Packaging typically “nd its way into land“lls, so consumers looking to reduce can favor items with less packaging when making their purchases and/or look for items packaged with reused or recycled materials. € Maintain existing products. Reusing items does not always require repurposing them. By taking care of their existing products and possessions, consumers can get more mileage out of them, reusing them for far longer than they could if the products were not better maintained. Reducing waste and reusing items go hand in hand. Embracing a lifestyle that emphasizes reducing and reusing can have a signi“cant, long-lasting and positive impact on the planet. BASICSFROM PAGE 1 Surgeons pack donated organs on ice while racing them to transplant patients but it may be time for a warmer approach. British researchers said Wednesday that keeping at least some livers at body temperature instead may work better. The livers keep functioning until theyre transplanted thanks to a machine that pumps them full of blood and nutrients. Its a life-support system for the organs, and similar machines are being explored for lung and heart transplants, too. The transplant community isnt ditching affordable ice chests for the far pricier approach just yet. But proponents hope that storing organs in a way that mimics the body might eventually increase the number of transplants „ by keeping precious donations usable for longer periods, and allowing use of some that today get thrown away. The biggest challenge in liver transplantation is the desperate shortage of organs,Ž said Dr. David Nasralla of the University of Oxford, who led the study in Britain and Europe. We found that livers that went on the machine were more likely to be transplanted.Ž Nearly 115,000 people are on the waiting list for an organ transplant in the United States alone, and last year there were just 34,770 transplants performed. Thousands die waiting. Partly, there are too few donations. Also, donated organs cant be stored for long „ about four to six hours for a heart or lung, and about 12 hours for a liver. And sometimes surgeons discard organs they fear wont do well because of a donors age or other health characteristics. Still, the vast majority of transplant recipients survive „ showing the decidedly old-fashioned method of popping a donated organ into an ice chest with a cold preservation solution and rushing it to an operating room works pretty well. Organs essentially hibernate, not frozen but cold enough to slow cellular activity and thus their deterioration. Wednesdays study highlights the “rst radically different approach to organ preservation,Ž said Dr. David Klassen of the United Network for Organ Sharing, which oversees the U.S. transplant system. He isnt involved with studies of socalled normothermicŽ preservation but calls it really exciting technologyŽ that might turn out to be appropriate for select organ donations rather than all of them. The new study involved 220 liver transplants performed in Britain, Belgium, Germany and Spain. Participating hospitals randomly assigned newly donated livers to be put into coolers as usual „ or to be stored for up to 24 hours in a machine made by Britains OrganOx Ltd. that keeps the organs functioning with warm ”uids. The study wasnt big enough to detect any potential differences in patient survival. But the warmed livers were healthier when transplanted, the researchers reported in the journal Nature. They had less cellular damage during storage, a risk for transplant failure, than the livers kept on ice. More compelling, surgeons preserved the warmed livers several hours longer yet discarded fewer of them, ultimately transplanting 20 percent more of those organs than the cooled ones, the study found. Why? Instead of having to guess how well a liver would work based on its donors characteristics, Nasralla said surgeons spent the extra time measuring how the organs functioned inside the warming machine. The study was funded by a European Commission grant. The results are promising but surgeons are watching for more evidence that such a big, and expensive, change in organ storage is worthwhile „ and if so, when best to use it, said Dr. Devin Eckhoff, transplant division director at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. OrganOxs liver machine is approved abroad but experimental in the U.S., where a similar study is underway at 14 transplant centers including Eckhoffs. A competing company, M assachusettsbased TransMedics Inc., recently won U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for warm preservation of donated lungs. Its clearly a lot more expensive than an ice box,Ž acknowledged Oxford professor Peter Friend, who co-invented the OrganOx machine. Friend couldnt provide exact costs. He said more study is needed to tell whether spending thousands more up-front on high-tech organ preservation might prove cost-effective if it lets doctors save organs that otherwise would be wasted or postpone middle-ofthe-night transplants until morning.UNOS Klassen says the bigger question is if scientists might use such machines to reconditionŽ organs, by adding medications or other therapies to make them healthier before transplant.Warming, not cooling, donated livers may improve transplantsBy LAURAN NEERGAARDAP MEDICAL WRITER AP PHOTOThis 2016 photo provided by OrganOx shows Drs.

She is part of 140,000 occupational therapists and assistants that bring their profession to the forefront during Occupational Therapy (OT) Month in April. Practitioners in OT enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent„or live better with„injury, illness, or disability. Its the only profession with explicit focus on optimizing the functions of an individual to participate in their everyday lives. Occupational therapy practitioners focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to “t the person. Anything a patient uses by hand (cell phone, tablet, laptop) can be altered for each particular need. An occupational therapist works on designing and modifying workplace and environment to avoid injury. They also work on adapting tools, such as pens, pencils and utensils, to drive the return of function, strength and sensation. Making tools larger or padding a handle for easier hold, securing a cuff to the hand or grip tape so that it sticks to the hand for a more secure grasp are just a few ways OT can help. Once we customize the gadget, we then have to teach the best way to modify your function with the device,Ž Maunahan says. That means if you have thumb pain while texting, you may need to use “ngers to text, or use a stylus. To avoid symptoms that include pain, popping, and a feeling that the “nger is locking when you bend or straighten it, OTs recommend using a light touch when pushing on a keyboard. Learning how to use voice commands or obtaining a fatter stylus are good strategies that put less stress on the thumb joint,Ž Maunahan says. Regarding carpal tunnel pain, OTs recommends setting up the workstation so that the wrists and forearms are parallel to the ”oor. We also like patients to have their elbows relaxed and bent at a 90-degree angle at your wrist,Ž says Maunahan. If you can use a vertical mouse and keep it in front, not to the side, the hand will be in a less stressful position,Ž suggests Maunahan. For back, neck, and headache “xes, a phys ical therapist can bring resolve for those patients that are looking down at electronic gadgets for long periods. Bending the head down will stretch the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in your neck and upper back and likely lead to pain and can irritate the occipital nerve where the spine connects to the base of the skull. The best thing to do is to adjust your posture and pay attention to discomfort when using technology,Ž says Catherine Mananita, physical therapist (PT) for Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center. That means keeping your eyes parallel to the ”oor instead of looking downward at your device,Ž says Mananita. Adjusting the computer monitor so its level with your gaze, or propping up handheld devices with adjustable stands so its at eye level can lead to better posture. Mananita advises that patients take actions to prevent pain. We know that building and strengthening core posture muscles will better support the spine,Ž she says. The more “t you are the less risk for developing neck or back pain.Ž For more information about resolving pain with repetitive activity, ask your doctor.

In November, the vaccines manufacturer, Sano“ Pasteur, said people who had never been sickened by dengue before were at risk of developing a more serious disease after getting the shot. After a two-day meeting this week, WHOs independent vaccines group said it now had proof the vaccine should only be used exclusively or almost exclusively in people who have already been infected with dengue.Ž The U.N. health agency said a test should be developed so doctors would be able to quickly tell if people had previously been sickened by dengue „ but the group acknowle dged doing that so isnt straightforward. We see signi“cant obstacles in using the vaccine this way, but we are con“dent this also spurs the development of a rapid diagnostic test,Ž said Dr. Joachim Hombach, executive secretary of WHOs expert group, during a news conference Thursday. Sano“ said last year that doctors should consider whether people might have been previously infected with dengue before deciding whether they should risk getting immunized. The company said it expected to take a 100 million euro ($118 million) loss based on that news. People who catch dengue more than once can be at risk of a hemorrhagic version of the disease. The mosquito-spread virus is found in tropical and sub-tropical climates across Latin and South America, Asia, Africa and elsewhere. It causes a ”u-like disease that can cause joint pain, nausea, vomiting and a rash. In severe cases, dengue can result in breathing problems, hemorrhaging and organ failure. About half the worlds population is at risk of dengue; WHO estimates that about 96 million people are sickened by the viral infection every year. Following Sano“s announcement last year, the Philippines halted its dengue immunization program, the worlds “rst national vaccination program for dengue. The government also demanded a refund of more than 3 billion pesos ($59 million) from Sano“ and is considering further legal action. In February, the Philippines said the vaccine was potentially linked to the deaths of three people: all of them died of dengue despite having received the vaccine. The country imposed a symbolic “ne of $2,000 on Sano“ and suspended the vaccines approval, charging that the drugmaker broke rules on how the shot was registered and marketed. More than 730,000 children aged 9 and above in the Philippines have received at least one dose of the dengue vaccine, usually delivered in three doses.There is no speci“c treatment for dengue and there are no other licensed vaccines on the market.UN health agency: Dengue vaccine shouldnt be used widelyBy MARIA CHENGAP MEDICAL WRITER AP PHOTOIn this Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017 le photo, a Manila Health ocer shows o a pair of vials of the anti-dengue vaccine Dengvaxia in Manila, Philippines.

Its the biggest win so far for immunotherapy, which has had much of its success until now in less common cancers. In the study, Mercks Keytruda, given with standard chemotherapy, cut in half the risk of dying or having the cancer worsen, compared to chemo alone after nearly one year. The results are expected to quickly set a new standard of care for about 70,000 patients each year in the United States whose lung cancer has already spread by the time its found. Another study found that an immunotherapy combo „ the BristolMyers Squibb drugs Opdivo and Yervoy „ worked better than chemo for delaying the time until cancer worsened in advanced lung cancer patients whose tumors have many gene ”aws, as nearly half do. But the bene“t lasted less than two months on average and its too soon to know if the combo improves overall survival, as Keytruda did. All of these immune therapy treatments worked for only about half of patients, but thats far better than chemo has done in the past. Were not nearly where we need to be yet,Ž said Dr. Roy Herbst, a Yale Cancer Center lung expert who had no role in the studies. Results were discussed Monday at an American Association for Cancer Research conference in Chicago and published by the New England Journal of Medicine. The studies were sponsored by the drugmakers, and many study leaders and Herbst consult for the companies. ABOUT THE DRUGS Keytruda, Yervoy and Opdivo are called checkpoint inhibitors. They remove a cloak that some cancer cells have that hides them from the immune system. The drugs are given through IVs and cost about $12,500 a month. Keytruda was approved last year as an initial treatment with chemo for the most common form of advanced lung cancer, but doctors have been leery to use it because that was based on a small study that did not show whether it prolongs life. The new study, led by Dr. Leena Gandhi of NYUs Perlmutter Cancer Center, gives that proof. In it, 616 patients were given chemo and some also received Keytruda. Those not given Keytruda were allowed to switch to it if their cancer worsened. After one year, 69 percent of people originally assigned to Keytruda were alive versus 49 percent of the others „ a result that experts called remarkable considering that the second groups survival was improved because half of them wound up switching. How much it ultimately will extend life isnt known „ more than half in the Keytruda group are still alive; median survival was just over 11 months for the others. The Keytruda combo also delayed the time until cancer worsened „ an average of nine months versus “ve months for the chemo-only group. Thats a big difference for such an advanced cancer, said Dr. Alice Shaw, a Massachusetts General Hospital lung cancer expert and one of the conference leaders. This is really a pivotal study ... a new standard of care,Ž said Shaw, who has no ties to the drugmakers. Rates of serious side effects were similar, but twice as many in the Keytruda group dropped out because of them. More than 4 percent of that group developed lung in”ammation and three patients died of it. THE COMPETITION Dr. Matthew Hellmann of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York led a study testing the Opdivo-Yervoy combo versus chemo in a slightly different group of newly diagnosed advanced lung cancer patients. The study design was changed after it was underway to look at results according to patients tumor mutation burden „ a measure of how ”awed their cancer genes are, according to a pro“ling test by Foundation Medicine. Medicare recently agreed to cover the $3,000 test for advanced cancers. Of 679 patients, 299 had a high number of gene ”aws in their tumors. In that group, survival without worsening of disease was 43 percent after one year for those on the immunotherapy drugs versus 13 percent of those on chemo. The immunotherapy drugs did not help people with fewer tumor gene ”aws. We have a tool that helps us determine who are the patients that are most likely to bene“t from this combination,Ž Hellmann said. The median time until cancer worsened was about 7 months on the immunotherapy drugs versus 5.5 months for chemo. Serious side effects were a little more common in the chemo group.

In addition, having a supportive social network can help with recovery and adjusting to life after treatment. The support group allows those experiencing a cancer diagnosis to cope with the emotional aspects by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges while allowing people to learn from others facing similar situations. Cancer patients and their family members are encouraged to attend. Active participation is not required, listeners are welcome. Physicians and other health professionals will periodically speak to the group on cancer related topics.

SUPPORT GROUPSLONG ISLAND, N.Y. „ Tick-borne infections have reached epidemic proportions on Long Island, where children are disproportionately affected by Lyme disease and other infections transmitted by the eight-legged creatures, a panel of top scientists announced recently. Lyme disease is mostly a disease of children and curiously mostly a disease of boys,Ž Jorge Benach said at a recent symposium at Stony Brook University School of Medicine. Benach, who discovered the bacterium that causes Lyme disease, is a molecular geneticist at Stony Brook University School of Medicine. His observation that Lyme disease is mostly an infection of children was corroborated by Dr. Christy Beneri, a pediatrician at Stony Brook Childrens Hospital. She said her institution encountered a wide range of tick-borne illnesses annually and that boys tended to outnumber girls in the number of infections. The most likely reason for the disparity, Beneri said, is the tendency among boys to play outdoors in wooded areas where ticks thrive. In the extensive pediatric research Beneri presented at the symposium was evidence of some children developing Bells palsy, a temporary facial paralysis that occurs when the Lyme bacterium affects a cranial nerve. The paralysis resolves with antibiotic treatment, Beneri said. Beyond the Lyme bacterium, ticks on Long Island have been found to harbor babesia and anaplasma. Babesia are protozoa, or parasitic, infectious agents that hone in on red blood cells, similar to the way a malaria parasite invades the same cells. Anaplasmosis is an infection caused by the bacterium Anaplasma phagocytophilum. It can trigger aches, fever, chills and confusion. Beneri and Benach were among “ve leading Stony Brook experts, including university president Dr. Samuel Stanley, who addressed what they described as a mounting epidemic of infections caused by the ever-expanding range of ticks. Stanley, who was the “rst speaker, is a specialist in infectious diseases. New York bears a disproportionate impact from tick-borne diseases,Ž Stanley said at the symposium, which was held in a lecture hall in the universitys health sciences building. This is a regional and state problem.Ž New York has the highest number of con“rmed Lyme disease cases nationwide, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has cataloged more than 95,000 Lyme infections in the state since 1986. Suffolk County has long been ground zero for the ailment on Long Island, studies consistently have shown. Cases in Suffolk County hover between 500 and 700 and this is just for the reported cases,Ž Benach said, noting that Suffolk has among the highest rates of many tick-transmitted infections because of the dense in“ltration of the insects in county. Typical Lyme symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans, said Dr. Luis Marcos, a specialist in internal medicine and infectious diseases. Marcos presented data showing the wide range of illnesses caused by ticks throughout the region, including Borrelia miyamotoi, a corkscrew-shaped bacterium identi“ed in recent years as the cause of a relapsing fever. Dr. Eric Spitzer, a pathologist, discussed the many laboratory tests that Stony Brook used to arrive at a diagnosis of a tick-transmitted illness. He said that for years, doctors nationwide sent specimens to the university for analysis because of its well-known precision. Testing of those specimens earned the university $32 million over a 20-year period, he said. Panelists identi“ed the most prevalent ticks on Long Island as the American dog tick; the invasive lone star tick, which migrated from Southern states; and the blacklegged tick, known as deer tick.Tick-borne diseases reach epidemic levels, panel saysBy DELTHIA RICKSNEWSDAY Better than Par Vision After all these years, my vision is still fantastic thanks to Dr. Frantz and his team at Frantz EyeCare.ŽCall today! 239.418.0999Fort Myers € Naples € Cape Coral € Punta Gorda € Lehigh Acres BetterVision.net George McNeill PGA Pro Golfer & LASIK Patientadno=50534174

BAYFRONT NEWS & NOTESFrom time to time, almost everyone will experience a stomachache. Most causes of abdominal pain are nothing to worry about, and will either pass on their own or be easily diagnosed and treated. But sometimes, stomach pain is a sign of a more serious illness. Learn which symptoms to watch out for, and use these tips to prepare for a successful visit with your doctor. Stomach pain is both quite common and notoriously dif“cult to diagnose,Ž says Geoffrey Roelant, M.D., board-certi“ed general surgeon with Bayfront Health Medical Group. There are literally hundreds of potential causes for pain and discomfort in the abdominal area. The more a patient can share about the nature, origin and severity of the pain, the easier it will be to diagnose and prescribe for relief.Ž The more structural causes of abdominal pain fall into three categories: € In”ammation „conditions such as appendicitis, diverticulitis and colitis € Stretching or distention of an organ … for example, obstruction of the intestine, blockage of a bile duct by gallstones or swelling of the liver from hepatitis € Loss of blood supply to an organ … as in ischemic colitis However, abdominal pain can also occur for reasons that are quite unclear, and in the absence of the above conditions. This is called functional pain, because no visible cause for the pain can be found. One of the most common conditions in this category is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Characterized by abdominal pain and discomfort combined with dysfunctional bowel habits „ diarrhea or constipation, or both … its estimated that between 25 and 45 million people in the U.S. are suffering from IBS. If your abdominal pain or bowel symptoms are severe, paired with fever or vomiting, or last more than 24-48 hours, it is likely time to see the doctor. Note that, if your symptoms follow a recent injury or trauma to your abdomen, call 9-1-1 or go directly to the nearest emergency facility. If the symptoms are chronic, or gradually worsening, schedule time with your primary care physician or a gastroenterologist to help you track down the cause and create a treatment plan. Prepare a list of symptoms you are concerned about, along with a general description of your diet and a list of all prescriptions, over the counter medicines, and supplements you are taking. Then, arm yourself with as much of the following information as possible to maximize your time in the of“ce: € Origin of the pain. When does the pain occur? Is it constant or intermittent? How long does it last? Does it occur after eating/eating certain foods? Worse in the morning or at night? Before/during/after menstruation? Try keeping a log in the days before your appointment to help you track the details of when, why, and how bad. €Location and characteristics of the pain. Where exactly is the pain located? Try to break your abdomen into quadrants „ upper right, lower left, etc. Does the pain move, or is the location static? Try to describe the pain … is it sharp and sudden, dull and aching, crampy? Do you notice any sounds coming from your abdomen? Does pain travel to your back or legs? € Aggravation and relief. What makes the pain better or worse? Does movement or use of muscles make it worse, or does laying down make it better? Does the pain worsen if you apply pressure, or after you eat? What do you do to “nd relief? Antacids or gas relief medications? Anti-in”ammatories? Does a heating pad or bed rest make you feel better? Keep a log of how you feel at different times of the day, and what you did before, during and after that may be related. € Bowel habits and changes. Be prepared to speak freely about your current and historical bowel habits, and any recent changes. Details such as frequency, size and texture are relevant, as is any pain you may be having related to bowel movements or urination. Be sure to note any feelings of pressure or nausea, any incidences of vomiting, and any presence of blood in the toilet bowl or on the tissue. Once youve consulted with your doctor on the symptoms and any other health concerns or history, you should expect him or her to do a physical examination. This may include examination of your abdomen for swelling or tenderness, a check of your lungs and blood pressure, listening for sounds in your digestive system, blood work and urine and stool samples. From there, if the diagnosis isnt clear or the labs reveal any concerns, you may be asked to proceed to some imaging or diagnostic procedures. While its likely your pain is not caused by colon cancer, colonoscopy screenings are still a critical diagnostic tool for those with digestive problems,Ž said Dr. Roelant. Dealing with chronic conditions such as IBS, Crohns or in”ammatory bowel disease increases your risk factors for polyps and colon cancer down the line. Survival rates keep getting better, simply because we are now catching these issues in their early stages.Ž There is seldom any good reason to just live with chronic abdominal distress. If your stomach issues have been on your mind for more than 30 days, call 941-833-1580 to start a conversation and diagnostic plan.

The Sun /Sunday, April 22, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 31 This years Top 2 Bottom Annual Charity Cancer Golf Tournament at Myakka Pines Golf Club was another great success. The tournament was held by the Ladies 18 & 9 Hole Golf Associations. Led by chairperson Grace Boleska and her tournament committee, the event helped raise more than $12,000 for cancer screening. It was the second consecutive year it hit that goal, and it was due to the generosity of golfers, sponsors, volunteers, staff and management. Included in this years fund-raising festivities was the addition of a Night at the Races,Ž which was held at the club and drew a capacity crowd. The proceeds were given to two local cancer-related charities, Dollars for Mammograms and the Dattoli Cancer Center Foundation. Planning for next years event has already begun. PHOTO PROVIDEDPictured are, from left, assistant golf professional Max Laubach; Pam Beadle, Sharon Colegrove, Ginya Carnahan of the Dattoli Cancer Center, tournament chairperson Grace Boleska, Rita Bertler of Dollars for Mammograms, Carol Sherburne, Ann Hertzog, Myakka Pines general manager TK Matthews. Myakka Pines raises $12K for cancerSPECIAL TO THE SUNExercises to help you Stress is often referred to as a silent killerŽ and is responsible for many of our contemporary illnesses. The truth is, many of our hospitals are overcrowded with men and women, young and old alike, who found it dif“cult or impossible to cope with stress. We live with stress on a daily basis and, although we are unable to avoid it, we certainly can understand and deal with it so as to keep its negative side effects from causing us harm. The following two exercises were selected to help you relax properly. They may be viewed as tools capable of helping you manage your daily stress. Exercise No.1 Lie on your back with the arms placed along the sides of the body. Ensure that the palms of the hands are facing up and your feet are a shoulder width apart. Close your eyes and breathe slowly, deeply and rhythmically. As you continue your breathing and become more and more relaxed, visualize (see in your minds eyeŽ) yourself ”oating in midair. As you inhale, visualize the surrounding air rushing in through your entire body. Exhale and see the air leaving through every square inch of the body. Continue the visualization for up to “ve minutes. The exercise may be done longer. Exercise No.2 Sitting comfortably in a chair, relax and calm the body. This is brought about through slow, rhythmic and quiet breathing. This calming of the body will, ultimately, lead to a calming of the mind; a state that is necessary for deepŽ relaxation. Once you are satisfied that the body is relaxed and calm enough, perform the activities of phase 1 and 2 presented below. Phase 1 First, take a deep breath. Next, with lips rounded, exhale vigorously through the mouth while simultaneously permitting the upper body to tilt forward from the waist. Note: The tilting and exhaling must begin and end at the same time. Do not rush. Perform the movement slowly and with control. Phase 2 At the end of the exhalation, press lips tightly together and inhale slowly through the nose. This inhalation must be accompanied by a straightening of the upper body back to its original vertical position. As with the previous movement, the inhaling and straightening of the body must begin and end at the same time. Points As the exercise is repeated, the degree of the tilting motion should be decreased to the point where the exercise is performed without any tilting of the upper body. The exercise should be repeated until the body becomes relaxed and calm and a feeling of lightness prevails. Repeating the exercise six to ten times will, normally, produce the desired effect. The effect of the exercise is quite similar to that received from the motion of a rocking chair.Additional information on stress management and relaxation may be had by visiting the Cultural Centers Fitness Center or calling 941-625-4175, ext. 263.Exercises to help you relax and combat stressBy GREGORY WHYTETHE CULTURAL CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYS FITNESS CENTER PHOTO PROVIDEDCummins, a member of the Cultural Centers Fitness Center, assumes the corpse pose.

The Sun /Sunday, April 22, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 33 The job market can be competitive, as new graduates ”ood the “eld each and every year. But graduation season is not the only time of year when the competition to “nd work gets heated. The start of the new year tends to be one of the busiest times of year for new hires. According to the employment resource Simply Hired, the “rst Monday after New Years Day tends to be the busiest day for job search activity. Companies are returning to full production after the holidays, and as a result there is a ”urry of new activity. This means applicants can use the last quarter of the year to prepare for job searches they will institute once the calendar turns. Many job seekers may bene“t from revamping their resumes before beginning their search. Its not uncommon for recruiters to receive thousands of resumes for each job opening they post, and the sheer volume of applicants can make it dif“cult for job seekers to get their resumes seen. In such instances, job seekers must take steps to tip the odds in their favor. By following these guidelines, job seekers may have a better chance of getting their resumes into the right hands. € Put a professional purpose. Modern standards may suggest that listing a career objectiveŽ is old fashioned. However, it is helpful to customize your resume so that it is geared toward the position for which you are applying. A career objective may re”ect how you are a strong candidate for each speci“c job you apply for. Use some speci“cs that tie into to the particular job or company and you may catch the hiring managers attention in the process. € Embrace keywords. Many employers now use application tracking software to sift through the scores of resumes that are submitted for each opening they post. Keywords make it easy for employers to sort through thousands of resumes. The right keywords will ”ag your resume and increase your relevancy scoreŽ in the main HR/recruiting software programs available. Adapt your resume for each application you submit. Use some of the words listed in the initial job posting and description. In addition, look at similar job postings and incorporate some keywords listed in those ads so that you have all the bases covered. € Trim the fat. Less is often more regarding resumes. List all of the pertinent information, then go over the resume again and again and cut out any irrelevant information to remove clutter. Only include information that is relevant to your career goals. € Highlight what you have done. Rather than listing every job responsibility and position in chronological order, use a resume to highlight speci“c career accomplishments. This is a time to be your biggest fan and tell the world all of the great things you have accomplished. Remember to include evidence to back up the claims. According to a 2015 survey by CareerBuilder, employers say that resumes that include links to a candidates portfolio, website or blog garner more attention than resumes without such links. € Put your own voice in the resume. Rather than using standard verbiage on your resume, personalize what you want to say. Hiring managers want to hire a human, not a machine. When speaking about yourself, be sure to use strong action words that de“ne your skills even further. HR professionals cite terms like managed,Ž achievedŽ and improvedŽ as examples of positive, assertive words. Updating a resume with the goal of standing out among a crowded pool of applicants is a great way for job seekers to land a new job.The right ways to update a resumeMETRO CREATIVE adno=719533 Mission Driven...

Page 34 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 CLASSIFIEDSNEW YORK „ Communication, collaboration, cooperation. Those are a few favorite things when it comes to managing upŽ at work, but handling a dif“cult boss can be tricky. The challenges and risks are playing out in the White House on a regular basis with a long list of departures as President Donald Trump grows increasingly wary of advice from staff. For the rest of us, though, whats on the table when attempting to manage up, and whats at stake? Its more than just work”ow, and it can be a job killer. Some common scenarios:When you disagree with a bossDuncan Lowe in San Francisco is co-producer and co-host of a weekly podcast called Millennial Minded.Ž He also works in account management for the public relations and marketing “rm Double Forte. His weekly podcast guest is his boss, the companys founder, president and CEO, Lee Caraher, who wrote the book Millennials & Management: The Essential Guide to Making it Work at Work.Ž Lowe, at 27, is a millennial. Caraher, at 54, is not. Its a common age dynamic in workplaces today. I always knew that communication is crucial, but sometimes we shy away from confronting an issue because it doesnt feel good. We run away from con”ict,Ž Lowe says. But things can really fester. They just dont go away. Confront, but do it respectfully and come with some context around the issue. Once you have that conversation, it feels really good and you feel like a weight has been lifted.Ž And what says the boss? Company values have become so much more important to a wide range of workers,Ž she says. Theres a high degree of expectation from a large portion of millennials to line up personal goals, personal values with company values. They want to know why, why, why. So tell them.ŽIf you want to know why work isnt a democracyYeah, its not,Ž says Caraher. However, the best businesses are the ones where leadership is asking for input, absorbing input and then making a decision, but its no longer command and control. You manage up by being cogent and persuasive, with backup, asking for the time to present your input, being able to answer questions.Ž Duncans takeaway: Lee has taught me high input, low democracy is how a lot of companies are run. If we spent all week debating whether to go left or right and there were different people looking for different paths, we would deliberate for weeks. You need someone who can say were going to the right. And when your boss says that, after seeking input, its your job as an employee to get on the boat and go, and not dig in your heels and say, Wow, Im pretty angry and Im going to make this dif“cult.ŽIf your boss is a micromanagerMary Abbajay, a Washington, D.C.-based organizational consultant, trainer and the founder-president of Careerstone Group, wrote the book Managing Up: How to Move Up, Win at Work and Succeed with Any Type of Boss.Ž This is the kind of boss people complain about the most,Ž she says. They want control and information, so “rst of all accept thats who he or she is. He or she is not going to change. I would recommend that you ”ood them with information. If you want to be in the loop you keep them in the loop. Dont wait for them to be over your shoulder. You get over their shoulder “rst.Ž Pivoting into defensive mode is counterproductive, Abbajay says. You have to be proactive and say, Heres what Im working on, here are the priorities, heres where I think you are. Is there anything Im not doing?ŽHow to manage the ghost bossThis manager is the ”ipside to the hyperhands-on boss. A ghost boss throws you a project and then disappears,Ž Abbajay says. Theyre never around. Theyre not giving you feedback. You never see them.Ž Nurture their schedulers and assistants as best friends forever, but know that managing your own expectations is key. Theyre probably going to cancel half of your meetings, but at least youll have the other half,Ž Abbajay says. When you do go in with the ghost boss, you have to be really clear what you need from them. If you need approvals, know what you need ahead of time.Ž Also, be up front about plans. Say, Hey, Ghost Boss. Im going to be working on X, Y and Z. If you have input, please let me know. Youve got to be the one whos driving the train,Ž Abbajay says. When you do get their attention, use it wisely.ŽWhen your boss has crossed the sexual misconduct lineThis depends a lot on where you work,Ž Abbajay says. We all know, as much as I hate to say it, that whistleblowers dont always get a fair shot. If its a large company, you actually have a better chance, but you need to make sure that HR department actually has your back.Ž Be willing to stake your job on speaking out. Many millennials, raised by older workers who were pushed out of jobs in the economic hard times of 2009 and 2010, are more willing to leave, Abbajay and Caraher agree. That, combined with silence as complicity, as the #MeToo movement re”ects, has changed the dynamic for many workers who once thought job security was the No. 1 priority. It depends on where you are but document everything,Ž Caraher counsels. One strategy is pretty straightforward. You can go to that person and say, You may not be aware, but this is what Ive observed. Im telling you this because youre at risk.ŽWhen your boss is, um, TrumpianAli Craig is a “xer of brands. She weaves science, psychology, design and human nature into strategies on how to boost in”uence. She prides herself on knowing how to make large ideas doable for anyone serious about taking action. Learn the ins and outs of your bosss quirks and, to put it bluntly, learn how to manipulate them to the organizations bene“t,Ž Craig says. If ”attery and ego in”ation are the ticket to getting your boss on board with a program, let the compliments ”ow,Ž she says. If you know that they are in”uenced greatly by the last person they spoke with, make sure you are their last conversation before any important decisions are made. Basically, adjust your work style to turn your bosss quirks into company wins.Ž Liz Bentley, a New York executive coach and leadership development expert, says most bosses are easily triggered. When your boss gets triggered, there are a number of effective things to do,Ž she says. First, dont hide, address the issue head on and listen up. Do not get derailed by the emotions or drama your boss may be creating. Stay focused on the problem or challenge at hand.Ž Own your anger, if thats the case. Be accountable, if you havent. Look for a solution. If its not about you then remember, ITS NOT ABOUT YOU,Ž Bentley says. Its about the challenge. Dont become a bigger part of the problem. Look to diffuse whats going on so you can get back to work.ŽAs with the president, managing up comes with risks, rewardsBy LEANNE ITALIEASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this March 15 photo, President Donald Trump talks with reporters in the Oval Oce of the White House in Washington.

Page 36 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 CLASSIFIEDS 4 The technologies driving arti“cial intelligence are expanding exponentially, leading many technology experts and futurists to predict machines will soon be doing many of the jobs that humans do today. Some even predict humans could lose control over their future. While we agree about the seismic changes afoot, we dont believe this is the right way to think about it. Approaching the challenge this way assumes society has to be passive about how tomorrows technologies are designed and implemented. The truth is there is no absolute law that determines the shape and consequences of innovation. We can all in”uence where it takes us. Thus, the question society should be asking is: How can we direct the development of future technologies so that robots complement rather than replace us?Ž The Japanese have an apt phrase for this: giving wisdom to the machines.Ž And the wisdom comes from workers and an integrated approach to technology design, as our research shows.Lessons from historyThere is no question coming technologies like AI will eliminate some jobs, as did those of the past. More than half of the American workforce was involved in farming in the 1890s, back when it was a physically demanding, labor-intensive industry. Today, thanks to mechanization and the use of sophisticated data analytics to handle the operation of crops and cattle, fewer than 2 percent are in agriculture, yet their output is signi“cantly higher. But new technologies will also create new jobs. After steam engines replaced water wheels as the source of power in manufacturing in the 1800s, the sector expanded sevenfold, from 1.2 million jobs in 1830 to 8.3 million by 1910. Similarly, many feared that the ATMs emergence in the early 1970s would replace bank tellers. Yet even though the machines are now ubiquitous, there are actually more tellers today doing a wider variety of customer service tasks. So trying to predict whether a new wave of technologies will create more jobs than it will destroy is not worth the effort, and even the experts are split 50-50. Its particularly pointless given that perhaps fewer than 5 percent of current occupations are likely to disappear entirely in the next decade, according to a detailed study by McKinsey. Instead, lets focus on the changes theyll make to how people work.Its about tasks, not jobsTo understand why, its helpful to think of a job as made up of a collection of tasks that can be carried out in different ways when supported by new technologies. And in turn, the tasks performed by different workers „ colleagues, managers and many others „ can also be rearranged in ways that make the best use of technologies to get the work accomplished. Job design specialists call these work systems.Ž One of the McKinsey studys key “ndings was that about a third of the tasks performed in 60 percent of todays jobs are likely to be eliminated or altered signi“cantly by coming technologies. In other words, the vast majority of our jobs will still be there, but what we do on a daily basis will change drastically. To date, robotics and other digital technologies have had their biggest effects on mostly routine tasks like spell-checking and those that are dangerous, dirty or hard, such as lifting heavy tires onto a wheel on an assembly line. Advances in AI and machine learning will signi“cantly expand the array of tasks and occupations affected.Creating an integrated strategyWe have been exploring these issues for years as part of our ongoing discussions on how to remake labor for the 21st century. In our recently published book, Shaping the Future of Work: A Handbook for Change and a New Social Contract,Ž we describe why society needs an integrated strategy to gain control over how future technologies will affect work. And that strategy starts with helping de“ne the problems humans want new technologies to solve. We shouldnt be leaving this solely to their inventors. Fortunately, some engineers and AI experts are recognizing that the end users of a new technology must have a central role in guiding its design to specify which problems theyre trying to solve. The second step is ensuring that these technologies are designed alongside the work systems with which they will be paired. A so-called simultaneous design process produces better results for both the companies and their workers compared with a sequential strategy „ typical today „ which involves designing a technology and only later considering the impact on a workforce. An excellent illustration of simultaneous design is how Toyota handled the introduction of robotics onto its assembly lines in the 1980s. Unlike rivals such as General Motors that followed a sequential strategy, the Japanese automaker redesigned its work systems at the same time, which allowed it to get the most out of the new technologies and its employees. Importantly, Toyota solicited ideas for improving operations directly from workers. In doing so, Toyota achieved higher productivity and quality in its plants than competitors like GM that invested heavily in stand-alone automation before they began to alter work systems. Similarly, businesses that tweaked their work systems in concert with investing in IT in the 1990s outperformed those that didnt. And health care companies like Kaiser Permanente and others learned the same lesson as they introduced electronic medical records over the past decade. Each example demonstrates that the introduction of a new technology does more than just eliminate jobs. If managed well, it can change how work is done in ways that can both increase productivity and the level of service by augmenting the tasks humans do.Worker wisdomBut the process doesnt end there. Companies need to invest in continuous training so their workers are ready to help in”uence, use and adapt to technological changes. Thats the third step in getting the most out of new technologies. And it needs to begin before they are introduced. The important part of this is that workers need to learn what some are calling hybridŽ skills: a combination of technical knowledge of the new technology with aptitudes for communications and problem-solving. Companies whose workers have these skills will have the best chance of getting the biggest return on their technology investments. It is not surprising that these hybrid skills are now in high and growing demand and command good salaries. None of this is to deny that some jobs will be eliminated and some workers will be displaced. So the “nal element of an integrated strategy must be to help those displaced “nd new jobs and compensate those unable to do so for the losses endured. Ford and the United Auto Workers, for example, offered generous early retirement bene“ts and cash severance payments in addition to retraining assistance when the company downsized from 2007 to 2010. Examples like this will need to become the norm in the years ahead. Failure to treat displaced workers equitably will only widen the gaps between winners and losers in the future economy that are now already all too apparent. In sum, companies that engage their workforce when they design and implement new technologies will be best-positioned to manage the coming AI revolution. By respecting the fact that todays workers, like those before them, understand their jobs better than anyone and the many tasks they entail, they will be better able to give wisdom to the machines.ŽRobots wont steal our jobs if we put workers at center of AI revolutionBy THOMAS KOCHANPROFESSOR, MITand LEE DYERPROFESSOR EMERITUS, RESEARCH FELLOW, CORNELL UNIVERSITY AP PHOTOFuture robots will work side by side with humans, just as they do today.

BUYACAR! 11 HARTFORD, Conn. „ A Connecticut agency issued new guidance Thursday warning employers they could be breaking the law if they discriminate against veterans with less-than-honorable discharges from the military. The Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities said blanket policies against hiring such veterans could be discriminatory because the military has issued so-called bad paper disproportionately to blacks and Latinos as well as service members who are gay or have disabilities. We want employers to look at veterans on a case by case basis,Ž said Cheryl Sharp, a deputy director of the commission. The guidance makes Connecticut the “rst state to take the position that discrimination based on discharge status can violate protections based on race, sexual orientation and disability, according to advocates at the Veterans Legal Services Clinic at Yale Law School. Illinois also protects veterans against discrimination for unfavorable discharge status, but there, the protections are written into state law and not based on the disparate impact for minorities and others, they say. The groups cited a 2017 report by the advocacy organization Protect Our Defenders that found black service member were much more likely to have disciplinary action taken against them than whites. Stephen Kennedy, an Iraq war veteran and a leader of the Connecticut chapter of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, said the bad paper issued to roughly 15 percent of the current generation of veterans denies them opportunities for careers that ease their transition back to civilian life. There is too much bias in the application of discharge characterizations for our employers to use that and know they arent turning away incredible talent,Ž he said. In its new guidance to employers, CHRO notes that some veterans without honorable discharges were separated from the military for minor infractions such as being late or watching a movie on duty that would not have led to criminal charges in civilian life. It also notes that up until 2011 thousands of gay service members were discharged because of their sexual orientation. The commissions announcement follows passage in the Connecticut Senate of a bill that would ensure veterans with other-than-honorable discharges can access state veterans bene“ts.Employers urged not to hold discharge status against vets BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. „ One of the largest providers of building technologies today of“cially opened the new UTC Center for Intelligent Buildings „ a state-of-the-art innovation and technology experience center, modern and connected work space for 500 employees, and environmentally sustainable building designed to the U.S. Green Building Councils LEED Platinum standards.

The News Wire Sunday, April 22, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER India approves death penalty for rape of young childrenSee page 4 HOUSTON (AP) „ Barbara Bush was remembered as the “rst lady of the greatest generationŽ during a funeral Saturday attended by four former U.S. presidents and hundreds of other people who “lled the church with laughter as much as tears, with many recalling her quick wit and devotion to family. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush joked that his mother called her style of mothering him and his siblings a benevolent dictatorship „ but honestly, it wasnt always benevolent.Ž He emphasized how she believed in the power of laughter and that joy should be shared. He said he could still feel her presence Saturday inside the nations largest Episcopal church and she would likely have given him advice on his eulogy: Jeb, keep it short. Dont drag this out,Ž he said to chuckles. He met her expectations with a speech lasting about seven minutes. He choked up at one point while addressing the roughly 1,500 people seated inside the St. Martins Episcopal Church in Houston, where his parents regularly worshipped, when saying his mother „ who was known for her self-deprecating remarks about her wrinkles and gray hair „ was beautifulŽ until the very end. He said he felt privileged that he had a front rowŽ seat to the incredible love story shared by his mother and father, former President George H.W. Bush, who laughed as longtime friends and family recalled his wifes wicked sense of humor Barbara Bush was first lady of the greatest generationBy JUAN A. LOZANOASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON „ Now its President Donald Trumps turn to pull off the ultimate charm offensive. Wined and dined on multiple state visits during his tour of Asia last year, Trump is paying it forward and celebrating nearly 250 years of U.S.-French relations by playing host to President Emmanuel Macron at a glitzy White House state dinner on Tuesday. Months in the making, its the “rst state visit and “rst big soiree of the Trump era in Washington. It sounds like what theyre planning will be spectacular,Ž said Jeremy Bernard, who was White House social secretary in 2014, the last time the U.S. feted a French president. The White House has said little beyond the fact that dinner will be served, sticking to the tradition of trying to maintain an element of surprise for its guests. In fact, Macron will break bread twice with Trump. On Monday, the president and Melania Trump will dine privately with Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at Mount Vernon, the home of Americas “rst president, George Washington, on the banks of the Potomac River in Virginia. The White House said the setting will serve as a reminder of Frances unique statusŽ as Americas “rst ally. Trump ended his “rst year without receiving a foreign leader on a state visit, making him the “rst president in nearly 100 years to do so and heightening the stakes for Tuesday. Dinner tickets are typically highly sought after by Washingtons political and business elite. A few inklings of whos in and whos out already are known: Christine Lagarde, head Vive la France: Trump to host glitzy White House state dinnerBy DARLENE SUPERVILLEASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES „ A homeless man who randomly stabbed a man to death as he was holding his daughter in a crowded Southern California restaurant was reported just a few hours earlier for disruptive behavior, but police ultimately determined he was not a threat, authorities said Saturday. Jamal Jackson, 49, is facing a “rst-degree murder charge in the death of 35-year-old Anthony Mele. He was being held in Ventura County jail on a $1.5 million bail. It was unclear if Jackson, who is also a convicted felon, had an attorney to speak on his behalf. Mele and his wife were eating dinner with their 5-year-old daughter Wednesday at Aloha Steakhouse in Ventura. The girl was sitting on her fathers lap when prosecutors say Jackson walked up and stabbed Mele in the neck. Prosecutor Richard Simon said patrons and a restaurant employee followed Jackson out of the restaurant, even though he still had the knife. They kept track of him until Ventura police arrived and arrested him. Mele was taken to a hospital and died Thursday after being taken off life support. Its horrible,Ž Simon said. You dont think youre going to be killed when you go out to dinner at a nice restaurant with your family and you didnt do anything.Ž Simon said the two men had not interacted before the attack. He was just sitting there with Man killed in random knife attack at California steakhouseBy AMANDA LEE MYERSASSOCIATED PRESS ATTACK | 3 BARBARA | 2 DINNER | 3WASHINGTON „ Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin expressed cautious optimism Saturday over efforts to resolve trade tensions that have rattled “nancial markets and clouded the global economic outlook. Mnuchin held a string of meetings over the past three days with “nancial of“cials from China, Japan and Europe over the punitive tariffs the administration has unveiled in an effort to ful“ll President Donald Trumps campaign promise to reduce Americas huge trade de“cits. In a session with reporters, Mnuchin refused to say how close the United States was to resolving the various trade disputes but did indicate progress was being made in the talks. In his discussion with Chinese of“cials, Mnuchin said the two sides covered the proposals that Chinese President Xi Jinping has made to open the Chinese market. We are cautiously optimistic,Ž Mnuchin told reporters, saying that he may soon travel to Beijing for further talks with the Chinese. The United States and China are on the brink of what would be the biggest trade dispute since World War II. The US and China have proposed imposing tariffs of $50 billion on each others products and Trump is looking to impose tariffs on up to $100 billion more of Chinese goods. The rising trade tensions dominated the three days of talks among top “nance of“cials attending meetings of the Group of 20 major economies, the 189-nation International Monetary Fund and its sister lending agency, the World Bank.Mnuchin expresses optimism for resolution of trade fightsBy MARTIN CRUTSINGER and PAUL WISEMANAP ECONOMICS WRITERSTRADE | 3 AP PHOTOFormer President George H.W.

After he spoke, Jeb Bush walked over to his father, and hugged him and kissed him on the cheek. Presidential historian Jon Meacham, who wrote a 2015 biography on the former president, recalled Barbara Bushs devotion to her husband of 73 years, noting former George H.W. Bush. is the only boy she ever kissed.Ž Theirs was the longest marriage of any other presidential couple. One of just two “rst ladies to have a child elected president, Barbara Bush was widely admired for her plainspoken style and was known as the EnforcerŽ in her family, the glue who kept the high-powered clan together. Meacham said it was Barbara Bushs quick tongue that made her so popular, along with her work promoting literacy and bringing awareness to AIDS patients. Barbara Bush was the “rst lady of the greatest generation,Ž Meacham said during his eulogy. The couples family, including their “ve children, 17 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, played a prominent role in the service. Granddaughters offered readings, some their voices shaky with emotion, while their eight grandsons were pallbearers. The Bush family was seated in front of the church. Nearby, two other former presidents „ Bill Clinton and Barack Obama „ along with their wives and current “rst lady Melania Trump were seated in the same pew. The invitation-only service was also attended by former ambassadors, members of Congress, sports stars and Houston business owners. A eulogy was also given by Barbara Bushs longtime friend, Susan Baker, wife of former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, who said Bush „ the wife of the 41st president of the U.S. and mother of the 43rd „ was the secret sauce of this extraordinary family.Ž As the funeral ended, George H.W. Bush was pushed in his wheelchair by his son George W. Bush as they followed the casket out of the churchs cavernous sanctuary, which had been adorned with sprays of yellow garden roses, yellow snap dragons and antique hydrangeas. They stopped along the way to shake hands, as mourners sang Joyful, joyful, we adore thee,Ž which Barbara Bush had requested as the “nal song. She died on Tuesday, with her husband by her side, at their home in Houston. She was 92. The burial will be held at her husbands presidential library at Texas A&M University, about 100 miles northwest of Houston. Hundreds of people lined both sides of the street near the campus ahead of the service. The burial site is in a gated plot surrounded by trees and near a creek where the couples 3-year-old daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia in 1953, is buried. Other guests at the funeral included former Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, and professional golfer Phil Mickelson, along with Karl Rove, and other former White House staff. Many were seen embracing in the church before the service on a gray, cloudy day as ”ags were ”own at half-mast. President Donald Trump did not attend to avoid security disruptions and out of respect for the Bush family and friends attending the service,Ž according to the White House. He said his thoughts were with the family. Melania Trump issued a statement after the funeral saying it was an honor to give her respects to a fearlessŽ “rst lady, adding: Today the world paid tribute to a woman of indisputable character and grace.Ž On Friday, more than 6,200 people visited the Houston church during a public viewing. Many of the women wore the former “rst ladys favorite color, blue, and trademark pearls. George H.W. Bush was so moved by how many people had lined up Friday to pay their “nal respects to his wife that he decided to go. From his wheelchair, he spent about 15 minutes shaking hands with people who had come.BARBARAFROM PAGE 1 Accompanied by his wife, Hillary Clinton,left, former President Bill Clinton arrives at St. Martins Episcopal Church for a funeral service for former rst lady Barbara Bush, Saturday, in Houston.

Meles Facebook page was “lled with photos of his daughter and said he was a manager at an AT&T store. Police con“rmed that a bystander reported a man „ who turned out to be Jackson „ for disruptive behavior several hours before the stabbing. According to the bystander, a man was yelling on the promenade not far from the beachside restaurant about three hours before the attack. Patrol of“cers were out on other calls so command center staff monitored the man via a pier security camera system for more than 20 minutes before deciding he didnt seem to be a threat, police said. Police are asking anyone who spoke with Jackson during that time to contact investigators. The killing prompted the Ventura City Council to increase police patrols in the area and add staff members to monitor security cameras, among other measures. We are extremely disheartened and infuriated by this criminal attack,Ž Mayor Neal Andrews said in a statement. We will not tolerate this in our community. Nothing is more important than the safety of our visitors, residents and businesses.Ž If convicted, Jackson faces up to 55 years in prison. According to online court records, he has prior convictions for burglary and unlawful sexual intercourse dating back to the 1990s.ATTACKFROM PAGE 1of the International Monetary Fund, is in, as are House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky was invited, but his of“ce said he is unable to attend. In a break with tradition, Trump invited no Democratic members of Congress or journalists, said a White House of“cial who was not authorized to discuss the arrangements. But at least one Democrat will be in the crowd: the of“ce of Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards con“rmed his attendance. Approximately 150 guests will take their seats in the State Dining Room on Tuesday, making for a more intimate affair than those held by President Barack Obama. Obamas guest lists numbered into the hundreds, requiring that the event be held in a tented pavilion erected on the South Lawn because no room in the White House can accommodate that many people. Most of the responsibility for executing a ”awless celebration falls to the “rst lady and her staff, including such key details as what is served (Trump likes wedge salads and chocolate cake) and poured into glasses (Trump wine?), who sits next to whom, who performs after dinner and what the decor looks like. One big moment is the “rst glimpse of the “rst lady in her gown. Fashion details are kept secret until the “rst couple steps on to the North Portico on Tuesday night to welcome their dinner guests. Former “rst lady Michelle Obama often used state dinners to showcase the talent of up-and-coming designers. Some designers have cited Trumps politics in refusing to dress the current “rst lady, a former model. Still, a likely choice would be Dior, the French design house whose fashions Mrs. Trump often wears, or Herve Pierre, the French-American who designed her inaugural gown and other looks. The last time a Republican president hosted his French counterpart was November 2007 when President George W. Bush welcomed the newly divorced Nicolas Sarkozy. More than 100 guests feasted on lobster bisque, lamb with tomato fondue, green beans and sweet potato casserole, salad and dessert served in the State Dining Room. Among the guests were major league baseball pitcher Tom Glavine, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, French chef Guy Savoy and several Louisiana politicians. After dinner, guests strolled down the hall to the East Room to watch performers in the roles of Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette, the Frenchman who served on Washingtons staff in the Continental Army. Sarkozy toured Mount Vernon the following day. When Macrons limousine “rst pulls up the White House driveway on Tuesday morning, Trump, the “rst lady, White House and administration of“cials, and hundreds of invited guests will be waiting on the South Lawn. The pomp“lled arrival ceremony is for the man who became the youngest president in French history when he was elected in 2017 at age 39 on his “rst run for of“ce. The visit also offers Macron his “rst Oval Of“ce meeting and a joint White House news conference with Trump. Theres also a State Department lunch hosted by Vice President Mike Pence before Macron and his wife arrive for the state dinner. The Trump-Macron relationship appeared to get off to a bumpy start with a white-knuckler of a handshake when the political novices met for the “rst time at a NATO summit in Brussels last May. But Macron likely sealed the bond after Trump accepted his invitation to attend the annual Bastille Day military parade in the center of Paris in July. Macron and his wife also took Trump and the “rst lady on a tour of Napoleons tomb and whisked them up into the Eiffel Tower for dinner overlooking the City of Light. The experience led Trump to order up a military parade for downtown Washington later this year. But the two part company on some signi“cant issues, including the Paris climate accord, which Trump withdrew the U.S. from last year, and the Iran-nuclear deal, another multinational agreement that Trump is itching to pull out of. The president did successfully rally Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May, with whom Trump has sparred, to mount a joint military operation against Syria in response to an apparent chemical attack this month that killed Syrian civilians. Macron still worries about Trumps desire to remove U.S. troops from Syria. An art lover who speaks good English, Macron is known to watch what he eats. Yet he told reporters at an agricultural fair in Paris in February that I drink wine at lunch and dinner.Ž Discerning his tastes, including likes and dislikes, even allergies, is one of the “rst things the White House tries to pin down for all guests, said Bernard. Mrs. Trumps social secretary, Rickie Niceta, came aboard last year after two decades of event planning for a caterer whose clients included the White House, the State Department and several embassies, in addition to working on the past “ve presidential inaugurations, including Trumps. The “rst lady, who speaks French, also has experienced hands running the kitchen, pastry shop and ”orists lair. All three women helped execute more than a dozen state dinners for Obama. Trump owns hotels, including one near the White House, and knows about good hospitality. Bernard recalled that, just as invitations were about to go out for the 2014 dinner for then-French President Francois Hollande, news broke that Hollande and his longtime girlfriend had abruptly split. Mrs. Obamas staff anxiously sought clarity on whether Hollande would bring another date. He didnt, and Bernard dealt with the awkwardness of the situation by seating Hollande between the two Obamas.DINNERFROM PAGE 1 The US get-tough trade approach was roundly criticized by many countries at the “nance meetings but Mnuchin insisted that the United States was not trying to provoke a global trade war but simply achieving a more fair system for American workers. While the administrations America First approach rankled other nations, Mnuchin did announce a change in position with the World Bank, one of several multilateral institutions that Trump of“cials have criticized in the past. Last year, the administration said it was opposed to what would be the “rst increase in the World Banks capital resources since 2010. But on Saturday, Mnuchin said the United States had dropped its opposition and would support the increase as part of a package of lending reforms. The proposal would provide the World Bank with a $13 billion increase in its lending resources. Both the World Bank and IMF held meetings of their policy committees on Saturday. In a closing communique, the IMF expressed concerns that the rising trade tensions could dim what at the moment are bright prospects for the global economy, which is expected to grow this year at the fastest pace since 2011. Trade tensions are not to the bene“t of anyone,Ž said Lesetja Kganyago, who leads the policymaking committee and is governor of the South African Reserve Bank. If there is a trade con”ict, there could never be winners. We could all only be losers.Ž On Friday, Mnuchin had called on the IMF to do more to police countries running large trade surpluses, a role that has traditionally been left to the Genevabased World Trade Organization. While many IMF member countries would object to such a broadening of the IMFs powers, the “nal communique did state, We will work together to reduce excessive global imbalances in a way that supports global growth.Ž The communique did not spell out how this would be accomplished. The IMF communique did list a series of threats to the current global upturn and “nance of“cials pledged to work cooperatively. In his speech to the IMFs policy committee Saturday, Yi Gang, the head of Chinas central bank, said that global growth could be hurt by an escalation of trade frictions caused by unilateral actions,Ž an obvious reference to Americas threatened tariffs against China.TRADEFROM PAGE 1 WEST PALM BEACH „ President Donald Trump said Saturday that he doesnt expect Michael Cohen, his longtime personal lawyer and “xer, to ”ipŽ as the government investigates Cohens business dealings.

That included records related to payments Cohen made in 2016 to adult “lm star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, both of whom allege having had sexual encounters with Trump, people familiar with the raid have told The Associated Press. Prosecutors have said theyre investigating Cohens personal business dealings but havent said what crime they believe he may have committed. Cohens lawyers have called the raid an assault on attorney-client privilege and Trump has said it was an attack on our country. In the tweets, sent shortly after he arrived at one of his Florida golf courses, Trump accused the newspaper of using non-existent sourcesŽ in a Friday story about the relationship between Trump and Cohen, who has said he would take a bulletŽ for his boss.

Page 4 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 WORLD NEWSSEOUL, South Korea „ Kim Jong Uns suspension of North Korean nuclear tests has strings attached. The leaders statement at a ruling party meeting Friday includes a pledge to seek a favorableŽ international environment for economic development so that he can put the economy on an upward spiral track.Ž That builds on his 2012 vow to ensure that North Koreans would not have to tighten their beltsŽ any longer. It also means he is seeking the help of other countries for developing his economy, including the lifting of trade, “nancial and energy sanctions that hardened every time North Korea detonated a nuclear bomb. Skepticism prevails on whether North Korea could emulate the kind of economic success that South Korea has achieved. And history has shown that overseas investors can suffer with no recourse if they fail in their risk assessment. Yet North Korea is viewed as a wild card and frontier market that could offer rewards for the business community because of its central location in a booming region encompassing China, Japan and South Korea. Everything about North Korea spells potential,Ž said Kim Young-hui, a North Korean defector studying at Seouls government-owned Korea Development Bank. North Korea can be a bridge linking the peninsula to as far as Europe via China. Imagine how much cargo could ”ow on that Asian highway.Ž North Korea has struggled to revive its economy since a famine in the mid-1990s, while South Korea has taken off as an economic powerhouse. The Songun, or military-“rst policy, charted by Kims father, Kim Jong Il, also dried up economic resources that otherwise would have bene“ted the economy. China has been hoarding the rare earths and other minerals in North Korea. Estimated to be worth as much as $6 trillion, North Koreas reserves of gold, copper, zinc, coal, magnesite and molybdenite could attract buyers from countries other than China, allowing Kim to diversify his sources of income if he opens up his country. (In 2013 Kim executed his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, on charges that included selling precious underground resources for dirt-cheap prices.Ž) The nation of 25 million also provides a labor force that remains largely untapped. South Korea has shown that a business model combining its capital and know-how with North Korean labor can work when it ran an industrial park in the North Korean border city of Gaeseong. That complex closed in 2016 during military tensions. The challenge of educating North Koreans with Western business practices and technology remains daunting for any investors who may want to start similar projects. North Koreas isolation has essentially rendered South Korea as an island in the world of commerce. If it opens, it could win transportation fees by allowing South Korea to export its goods to the rest of the world by land. South Korean President Moon Jae-in, set to meet with Kim next Friday, has already suggested that his country could receive gas supplies from Russia through North Korea while cargo ”ows to Europe. That would mean building roads and other infrastructure in North Korea. Much about North Koreas economic development is easier said than done. Kims promise to stop nuclear tests is a far cry from U.S. and South Korean demands that all nuclear programs be rolled back. Kim has said nuclear arms safeguard his regime. It took China, a role model for North Korea, more than two decades to accelerate its growth after Deng Xiaoping decided to open up the country. And he didnt have to worry about the survival of his nation. Kim on the other hand fears for the lack of a nuclear deterrent „ and for a ”ow of information that could turn his people against him.Kim shifts focus to economy as NKorea ditches nuclear testsBy SAM KIMBLOOMBERG NEWSNEW DELHI „ Indias government on Saturday approved of the death penalty for people convicted of raping children under 12, responding to widespread outrage over the recent rape and killing of a young girl and other attacks on children. An order was approved by Prime Minister Narendra Modis Cabinet and was being sent to the president for his approval, the Press Trust of India news agency reported. It will require the approval of Parliament within six months to become law. But in the meantime, suspects can be prosecuted under the order. The move follows widespread outrage over the recent rape and killing of an 8-year-old girl in Indias Jammu-Kashmir state, the alleged rape of a girl by a ruling party lawmaker in Uttar Pradesh state and several other rape cases involving girls in the country. Many protesters expressed particular anger at Indias ruling Hindu nationalist party for initially siding with the accused in the Kashmir case. The young victim was a Muslim and the accused are Hindus. A total of at least nine suspects, including a lawmaker from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and four police of“cials, have been arrested in the Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh cases. Violent crime against women has been on the rise in India despite tough laws enacted in 2013. In 2012, the fatal gang rape of a young woman in New Delhi triggered massive protests by hundreds of thousands to demand stricter rape laws in the country. The government enacted laws doubling prison terms for rapists to 20 years and criminalizing voyeurism, stalking and the traf“cking of women. Indian lawmakers also voted to lower to 16 from 18 the age at which a person can be tried as an adult for heinous crimes. Abha Singh, a lawyer, said the governments move Saturday would deter men from committing crimes against women. But she urged the government to set a time frame for bringing suspects to justice. Indian courts are notorious for massive delays, with more than 30 million cases pending. She said that the conviction rate in rape cases in India was only 28 percent, implying that 72 out of 100 suspects are going unpunished.ŽIndia approves death penalty for rape of young childrenTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this April 17, 2018 le photo, egies hang on nooses with the words, from left to right, hang the guilty in the Unnao rape case,Ž Hang the guilty in the Kathua rape case,Ž and hang the guilty in the Surat rape case,Ž referring to recent cases and allegations of rape, during a protest in Ahmadabad, India. Indias government has decided to prescribe the death penalty for people convicted of raping girls under the age of 12 to combat an increase in crimes against women. BEIRUT „ Chemical weapons inspectors collected samples from Syrias Douma on Saturday, two weeks after a suspected gas attack there followed by retaliatory strikes by Western powers on the Syrian governments chemical facilities. The site visit, con“rmed by the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, would allow the agency to proceed with an independent investigation to determine what chemicals, if any, were used in the April 7 attack that medical workers said killed more than 40 people. Douma was the “nal target of the governments sweeping campaign to seize back control of the eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus from rebels after seven years of revolt. Militants gave up the town days after the alleged attack. The U.S., France, and Britain blamed the President Bashar Assads government for the attack, and struck suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities one week later. The Syrian government and its ally Russia denied responsibility for the attack. OPCW inspectors arrived in Damascus just hours before the April 15 strikes but were delayed from visiting the site until Saturday, leading Western of“cials and Syrian activists to accuse Russia and the Syrian government of staging a cover-up. I wont “nd any hope in my heart until the Assad regime is held accountable and eradicated from government in Syria,Ž said Bilal Abou Salah, a Douma media activist who left the town after the government takeover. He said he feared Russian and Syrian government personnel destroyed potential evidence in the two weeks since the alleged attack. The OPCW said in a statement that it visited one of the sitesŽ in Douma to collect samples for analysis at agencydesignated laboratories, adding it would consider future steps including another possible visit to Douma.Ž It said the mission will draft a report based on the “ndings, as well other information and materials collected by the team.Ž The OPCW mission is not mandated to apportion to blame for the attack. A U.N. security team had scouted Douma on Tuesday to see if it was safe for weapons inspectors to visit. The team came under small arms and explosives “re, leading the agency to delay its mission. Journalists visiting Douma the previous day, escorted by government minders, experienced no security issues. Russian ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the delays to the OPCW team were unacceptable,Ž in a statement Saturday. Douma is just minutes away from Damascus, where the OPCW team is based. Images emerging from Douma in the hours after the attack showed lifeless bodies collapsed in crowded rooms, some with foam around their noses and mouths. Abou Salah entered one of the buildings affected by the alleged gas attack the following day and took footage of a yellow cylinder with a gas valve on the top ”oor. He said it had crashed through the roof and showed a gash in the ceiling where it purportedly came through. His assertions could not be independently veri“ed. But the cylinder looked like others identi“ed by the international NGO Human Rights Watch at other locations of chlorine gas attacks attributed to the government in 2016. Raed Saleh, the head of the Syrian Civil Defense search-and-rescue group, also known as the White Helmets, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his organization had shared the coordinates of the graves of April 7 victims with the OPCW, so that inspectors could take biological samples. Civil Defense workers evacuated Douma after the attack, fearing persecution by the security services of the government. The government says the group is a terrorist organization. The group, which operates in opposition areas only, maintains a strong position against Assad. Thousands of people „ rebels and civilians „ left Douma on buses to north Syria in the days after the attack, believing they could not live under government authority after it retook the town. North Syria is divided between opposition, Turkish, and al-Qaida control. The evacuations were the latest in a string of population transfers around the Syrian capital that have displaced more than 60,000 people as the government reconsolidates control after seven years of civil war. U.N. of“cials and human rights groups say the evacuations amount to a forced population displacement that may be a war crime. On Saturday, rebels began evacuating three towns in the eastern Qalamoun region in the Damascus countryside, state TV reported. State-run Al-Ikhbariya TV said 35 buses left the towns of Ruhaiba, Jayroud, and al-Nasriya carrying hundreds of rebels and their families to opposition territory in north Syria. The station said there could be 3,200 rebels leaving three towns on Saturday. It said the evacuations would continue for three days. Syrian government forces will take over the towns once the departures are complete.Samples collected from Syria siteASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOKim Jong Un LONDON (AP) „ Irelands premier has urged his country to show compassion as he launched a campaign to overturn some of Europes strictest abortion rules. Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said Saturday that Irelands May 25 referendum on whether to lift a constitutional ban on most abortions is an opportunity to put compassion at the center of our laws.Ž He said the current restrictions do not prevent abortions. Abortion in largely Catholic Ireland is legal only in rare cases when a womans life is in danger. Thousands of Irish women travel each year to get abortions in neighboring Britain. Voters will be asked whether they want to retain or repeal the constitutional ban. If its repealed, parliament would be responsible for creating new abortion laws.Irish premier launches bid to overturn abortion restrictionsSANAA, Yemen „ Unidenti“ed armed men shot dead a humanitarian aid worker in Yemens southwestern province of Taiz early Saturday, the International Committee of the Red Cross said. Hanna Lahoud of Lebanon, who was in charge of the ICRCs detention program in Yemen, was shot at while on his way to visit a prison. He was rushed to hospital but died from his wounds. Other staff members accompanying him were unharmed, the ICRC said in a statement. Yemeni security of“cials said Lahoud was killed in the district of al-Dabab which is under the control of forces loyal to the internationally recognized government of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. They said he suffered at least four gunshot wounds before being carried to the hospital where he died. The of“cials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. We condemn this brutal and apparently deliberate attack on a dedicated humanitarian worker,Ž the ICRCs Middle East Director Robert Mardini said. The United Nations also condemned the unjusti“edŽ killing of Lahoud. Parties to the con”ict are obliged under international humanitarian law to do everything possible to protect civilians and ensure they have the assistance they need to survive,Ž U.N. Human Coordinator for Yemen Lise Grande said. Yemeni of“cials said an investigation would be held into the incident, according to a statement by the Ministry of Local Administration. Yemen has been embroiled in a civil war since March 2015 pitting a Saudi-led coalition backing Hadis government against Shiite rebels, known as Houthis. The stalemated war has created the worlds worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22.2 million Yemenis in need of assistance.Red Cross says shooting in Yemen kills stafferBy AHMED AL-HAJTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS TOM HONAN/PA VIA APIrish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, center, poses with banners during an event to support a yes vote for the 8th Amendment, in Dublin.

You may not know my name, but youve probably heard of some companies Ive gobbled up, such as J. Walter Thompson, Ogilvy & Mather, Hill & Knowlton, Burson-Marsteller and Young & Rubicam. (There are hundreds of others under my roof.) Today, based in London, Im the world leader in advertising and communications services, with a market value recently near $20 billion and with some 3,000 offices in 112 countries. I bill more than $70 billion annually. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. prefer sinking prices.Ž Its always best to buy into healthy and growing companies when their stocks are trading at fair or depressed prices „ and bargains abound in bear markets. Why hope to buy shares of a company you admire at $30 and then $40 after it rises, when youd do better buying at $30 and $20? If you plan to buy coffee for the next 25 years, 10 years of falling coffee prices would be welcome, right? (Unless you run a coffee plantation, of course.) One effective way to build your wealth is to invest money regularly, over many years. Many patient investors have amassed great fortunes over the long run, while those trying to get rich quick in stocks are just gambling and often dont do well. The media usually treats big or sustained drops in the stock market as only bad and as a good reason to panic. The only ones who should panic, though, are those who need to sell their holdings soon „ and they shouldnt even be invested in stocks. Its best to invest in stocks only with money you can leave in the market for five, or even 10, years.The Motley Fool TakeToying With ProfitsIt might be game over for toy retailer Toys R Us, which is undergoing liquidation as its business evaporates, but that doesnt mean that toy and game giant Hasbro (Nasdaq: HAS) is doomed, even though its stock is being dragged down by the news. Hasbro has multiple channels through which to sell its games and toys, and Toys R Us wasnt the companys biggest retailer. In 2017, Walmart, Toys R Us and Target were its three largest customers, accounting for 19 percent, 9 percent and 9 percent of global sales, respectively. Tie-ins with movies are one of many ways Hasbro is growing, thanks to the enduring popularity of franchises such as Star Wars, Transformers and Marvel superheroes, not to mention Hasbros continuing relationship with Disney. Meanwhile, Hasbros rivals are weakening. Mattels revenue has been shrinking over the past few years, and Hasbro is looking to acquire it. Hasbro has a track record of developing products that kids can relate to, and with its growing presence in the digital market, Hasbro ought to be able to capitalize on kids seeking online entertainment. Its brands include Nerf, My Little Pony, Transformers, Play-Doh, Monopoly and Magic: The Gathering. Recently trading near 52-week lows and sporting a 3 percent dividend yield, Hasbros stock is worth considering. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Hasbro.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentGreat Concepts Arent EnoughMy dumbest investment was in Solomon Technologies, a company making innovative electric motors. It was an exciting concept, but I lost all the money I invested. „ D.A., online The Fool Responds: When investing, an exciting concept isnt enough. A company should ideally offer growing revenue and profits, a healthy balance sheet (meaning little debt and ample cash to meet obligations and fuel growth), one or more sustainable competitive advantages, and trustworthy, capable management. In the case of Solomon Technologies, its visionary CEO ended up accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of defrauding investors through illegal trading. He subsequently left the company. Its always smart to research a company thoroughly before investing, but you can still end up surprised and burned on occasion. Thats why its important not to invest too many eggs in too few baskets. If your Solomon stake made up half your overall portfolios value, it would have been devastating, but if it was just a 10th or 20th of it, it would sting less. Many times, exciting companies you run across have not yet grown into profit-making enterprises and are worth avoiding. In one of Solomons filings with the SEC, it noted, We have never been profitable, and if we continue to lose money and do not achieve profitability soon, we may be unable to continue our business.Ž It also noted unpaid taxes and debts. Look Before You Buy LEAPSQWhat are LEAPS? „ H.B., Pueblo, ColoradoALong Term Equity Anticipation Securities (LEAPS) are long-term options. Standard options let you purchase the right to buy (via callŽ options) or sell (via putŽ options) a fixed number of shares of a stock at a fixed price within a fixed time period, typically a few months. LEAPS work the same way, but expire after more than a year.For example, if you think that PieMart (ticker: GOBBL), trading at $50 today, will soon be at $70, you might buy call options for $6 per share that let you buy the shares at $55. That will ultimately cost you $61 per share ($55 plus $6), netting you a $9-per-share profit „ but only if the stock hits your target before the expiration date. LEAPS, with their longer time frames, generally cost more than shorter-term options, but they can be more attractive as they give the underlying stock more time to move. Options are not for beginning investors, and many experienced investors steer clear, too.

They spend their cash for purposes such as paying dividends, expanding their businesses and acquiring other companies. If they suddenly need cash, they draw on their lines of credit. Meanwhile, a manageable amount of debt isnt necessarily bad. Indeed, if a company borrowed at a low rate and made great use of that money, its an effective strategy.Want more information about stocks?

Its as if youre in charge of the burner of your life, and when you want to bring things down to a simmer, all you have to do is turn it all down. This is how you avoid getting burned. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People generally say can we talk?Ž when its about something signicant and potentially unpleasant. You want to talk when theres nothing wrong, and thats a lot more fun. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Research is excellent when you have the time, but it can also be a procrastination tactic.

At present, I have one more required undergraduate credit to complete at the local university. My husband and I are excited that I nally made the decision and am following through. The problem is my motherin-law. She has told everyone I have been accepted into the masters program at a prestigious school in my area „ one I am HOPING to get into. Abby, we recently threw a surprise party for her mother and everyone was congratulating me. I was embarrassed and had to correct them, saying that was my hope, but I havent yet applied. I have asked her to please stop, but it continues. I know shes excited and proud of me, and for that I am thankful, but now Im incredibly nervous that if I dont get in Ill look like a failure. Suggestions? „ NERVOUS IN THE EAST DEAR NERVOUS: I am unsure why your motherin-law would continue to spread information she knows isnt true. Perhaps its wishful thinking. If you tell her that what shes doing only increases the pressure on you, she may pipe down, but dont count on it. Because you cant control what comes out of her mouth „ and the cat is out of the bag, so to speak „ you have two choices. Gain admission to that masters program or, if that doesnt turn out to be possible, level with the people who prematurely congratulate you and explain that your MIL jumped the gun and acceptance wasnt a sure thing. The only thing you SHOULDNT do is allow yourself to be embarrassed about it. DEAR ABBY: A recent death in my family has affected me greatly. Her love for others was boundless; her enthusiasm for life unparalleled. Her sense of humor was remarkable. When my spirits were down, she greeted me with love every day and was a positive inuence. Im speaking about my labradoodle, Molly. I was lucky enough to have her in my life for nine years. My problem is, people dont get it. Molly was family. I loved her, she died and Im heartbroken. Im being told to get over itŽ „ she was just a dog.Ž I understand that some people dont like dogs and thats OK. What I dont get is that they cant seem to grasp that I have experienced a great loss. Am I being silly? I feel like I have lost a child. Your input would be greatly appreciated. „ GRIEVING IN NEW MEXICO DEAR GRIEVING: You are not being silly. Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your precious Molly. Unless someone has experienced what you have, it can be dicult to empathize.

(AP) „ President Donald Trump says hes considering a posthumous pardon for boxings “rst black heavyweight champion more than 100 years after the late Jack Johnson was convicted by all-white jury of accompanying a white woman across state lines. Trump announced Saturday on Twitter that the actor Sylvester Stallone, a friend of his, had called to bring Johnsons story to his attention. His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial,Ž Trump wrote from his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!Ž Johnson is a legendary “gure in boxing and crossed over into popular culture decades ago with biographies, dramas and documentaries following the civil rights era. Most famously, his story was “ctionalized for the play The Great White Hope,Ž starring James Earl Jones, which won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and the Tony Award for best play in 1969. A “lm version with Jones was released in 1970. More recently, the documentary Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson,Ž directed by Ken Burns, was aired on PBS in 2004. Johnson was convicted in 1913 for violating the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for immoralŽ purposes. The boxer died in 1946. His great-great niece has pressed Trump for a posthumous pardon, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., have been pushing Johnsons case for years. The tweet came a week after Trump pardoned I. Lewis ScooterŽ Libby, who had been a top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, arguing that Libby had been treated unfairlyŽ by a special counsel. Stallone, who starred in the 1976 boxing “lm RockyŽ and several sequels, is a supporter of the president and attended Trumps New Years Eve party at Mar-a-Lago in 2016. McCain previously told The Associated Press that Johnson was a boxing legend and pioneer whose career and reputation were ruined by a racially charged conviction more than a century ago.Ž Johnsons imprisonment forced him into the shadows of bigotry and prejudice, and continues to stand as a stain on our national honor,Ž McCain said earlier this month. In Jim Crow America, Johnson was one of the most despised AfricanAmerican of his generation, humiliating white “ghters and ”aunting his affection for white women. The son of former slaves, he defeated Tommy Burns for the heavyweight title in 1908 at a time when blacks and whites rarely entered the same ring. He then mowed down a series of great white hopes,Ž culminating in 1910 with the undefeated former champion, James J. Jeffries. He is one of the craftiest, cunningest boxers that ever stepped into the ring,Ž said the legendary boxer John L. Sullivan, in the aftermath of what was called the “ght of the century.Ž But Johnson also refused to adhere to societal norms, living lavishly and brazenly and dating outside of his race in a time when whites often killed African-Americans without fear of legal repercussions. After seven years as a fugitive following his conviction, Johnson eventually returned to the U.S. and turned himself in. He served about a year in federal prison and was released in 1921. He died in 1946 in an auto crash. The stain on Johnsons reputation forced some family members to live in shame of his legacy. The family didnt talk about it because they were ashamed of him, that he went to prison,Ž Linda E. Haywood, 61, has said of her greatgreat uncle. They were led to believe that he did something wrong. They were so ashamed after being so proud of him.Ž Haywood said she didnt “nd out she was related to Johnson until she was 12. She remembers learning about Johnson when she was in sixth grade during Black History Month, and only learned later that he was kin. Once, she recalled, she asked her mother about Johnson. She just grimaced,Ž Haywood said. Haywood has pressed to have Johnson pardoned since President George W. Bush was in of“ce, a decade ago. Posthumous pardons are rare, but not unprecedented. President Bill Clinton pardoned Henry O. Flipper, the “rst African-American of“cer to lead the Buffalo Soldiers of the 10th Cavalry Regiment during the Civil War; he was framed for embezzlement. Bush pardoned Charles Winters in 2008, an American volunteer in the Arab-Israeli War convicted of violating the U.S. Neutrality Acts in 1949. Haywood wanted Barack Obama, the nations “rst black president, to pardon Johnson, but Justice Department policy says processing posthumous pardon petitions is grounded in the belief that the time of the of“cials involved in the clemency process is better spent on the pardon and commutation requests of living persons.Ž The Justice Department makes decisions on potential pardons through an application process and typically makes recommendations to the president. The general DOJ policy is to not accept applications for posthumous pardons for federal convictions, according to the departments website. But Trump has shown a willingness to work around the DOJ process.Trump considering pardon for late boxer Jack JohnsonBy JILL COLVINASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOThis undated photo shows boxer Jack Johnson. NEW YORK (AP) „ One has recurring nightmares. Another cant take a bath anymore. Still another cant sleep. Jurors in the murder trial of a nanny who stabbed two small children to death in the bathtub of their Manhattan apartment said the nearly twomonth-long experience took an emotional toll they fear will linger long after their guilty verdict. They are still haunted by the words of the anguished parents and the grisly photos that showed 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother Leo gashed so severely in the throat that they were nearly decapitated. It was gut-wrenching,Ž said juror David Curtis, a 52-year-old actor who has raised two children of his own. I had nightmares which related to losing something important to me or not being able to “nd my family. It truly did affect me.Ž Alternate juror Chloe Beck, 31, said her days of taking baths to unwind ended after seeing the crime-scene photos (not shown to the courtroom spectators) that showed blood coating virtually every surface of the bathroom. There was even a bloody childrens toothbrush. She “xated on the toddler, Leo, calling him her little guy.Ž I dont know how Ill ever get over this,Ž she said, tears streaming down her face. For juror Edgardo Chacon, 57, its the face of the girl, Lucia, known as Lulu, that he sees when he sits up in the night. Many of the more than 30 stab wounds on her body indicated she tried to “ght back. I was there for 33 days, and every night I think about Lulu,Ž he said. I dont know why it was in my mind. But it was not fair. ƒ Its not fair what she did to those kids.Ž Yoselyn Oretga was convicted Wednesday of murder after the jury rejected the argument that she should not be held responsible in the October 2012 slayings because she was too mentally ill. Prosecutors argued that Ortega, who had been the childrens nanny for two years, knew exactly what she was doing, acting out of jealous hatred of the childrens mother for her wealth and happiness. Among the most wrenching moments of the trial came when mother Marina Krim took the stand as the “rst witness, telling of coming home from a swimming class with her 3-year-old daughter, Nessie, to discover her other two children dead. She described how she saw their vacant eyes and their small bodies ripped apart, and just started screaming. It was a scream you cant imagine is even inside of you,Ž she testi“ed. I dont even know where it came from. I just thought: Im never going to be able to talk to them ever again. They are dead. I just saw my kids dead.Ž Several in the panel of 12 jurors and “ve alternates who sat through the trial were parents, and for at least one, the testimony early in the trial was too much. The man with two small children of his own „ ages 2 and 4 „ asked the judge to be excused, saying he could no longer be impartial. Said juror Curtis: I worked very hard at not thinking about my own children. ƒ It is horrifying to think of being in a position, of having to experience or go through the process of what the Krims had to go through.Ž About 70 percent of jurors report some level of stress, but less than 10 percent report extreme stress, according to a study done by the National Center for State Courts. Some judges will request a crisis-management session after a trial but thats unusual and was not ordered after the nanny verdict. Juror stress is a problem more common than we realize, but cases where there is a mental health intervention are rare,Ž said Theodore Feldmann, a professor emeritus in psychiatry at the University of Louisville who has counseled jurors after dif“cult trials, including those who convicted serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the 1990s. Feldmann said jurors may experience whats called acute stress disorder, essentially a less-serious form of post-traumatic stress disorder that includes such symptoms as headaches, anxiety, dif“culty sleeping, nightmares and depression. At the Ortega trial, even jurors who werent deeply disturbed were still highly emotional. Alternate Brittany Yee, 27, was dismissed but stayed and waited for the trial to end. She said she was upset by the evidence she saw, but that she was handling it all right. But then father Kevin Krim entered the courtroom and sat down next to her. When the verdict was read, she sobbed and held his hand. Krim later thanked the jury in a statement he posted on Facebeook. These jurors went through hell,Ž Krim wrote. I hugged every one of them I could.ŽBy COLLEEN LONGASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOSIn this image taken from video on Wednesday, jurors in the murder trail of Yoselyn Oretga, the nanny who stabbed two small children to death in the bathtub of their Manhattan apartment, hold a news conference in New York. I had nightmares : Nanny slay trial took toll on jurors Texas 8th-graders asked to list positives of slavery Wife: Man struck by train pushed her off tracksSAN ANTONIO (AP) „ A San Antonio charter school has apologized after a teacher asked students in an eighth-grade American history class to list the positive and negative aspects of slavery. The Great Hearts Monte Vista teacher who distributed the worksheet titled The Life of Slaves: A Balanced ViewŽ was placed on leave and the school said it would audit the textbook associated with the lesson, said Aaron Kindel, the superintendent of Great Hearts Texas, which operates 28 public charter schools in Texas and Arizona. To be clear, there is no debate about slavery.

Despite a comfortable 6-4, 6-1 win against No. 5-ranked Grigor Dimitrov, he had a pressing concern given how quickly he was texting. What frantic emergency could command such attention? I was texting Carlos to tell him that we need to book a court quick,Ž Nadal said. I wanted to hit some forehands winners that I think I need for tomorrow.Ž So the top-ranked Nadal, a 10-time French Open champion with 75 career titles, hurried to another clay court just for forehand practice ahead of Sundays final against Kei Nishikori, an opponent he has beaten nine times out of 11. While it may seem absurd, it is a reminder of the relentless perfectionist Nadal is even on his best surface. No matter that he has not dropped a set in six matches since coming back from a recurrence of a right hip injury; he is more focused on ironing out even the smallest of flaws.

Winslow intentionally stepped on Embiids mask after it had fallen onto the court with 7:51 remaining in the second quarter of the 76ers 128108 victory on Thursday night. The NBA cited Winslow for unsportsmanlike conduct in announcing the penalty Friday. Embiid was wearing the mask for the first time after returning from a 10-game absence caused by a broken orbital bone around his left eye. Philadelphia leads the series 2-1. Game 4 is Saturday.IN BRIEFshot 7 for 31 from 3-point range and trailed by 12 late in the third quarter in an extremely hostile environment against a desperate opponent. Despite it all, the 76ers were unfazed. Philadelphia turned a 10-point deficit into a seven-point lead with a 19-2 run that ended midway through the fourth quarter, then absorbed the best shot Dwyane Wade could throw at the 76ers in the final minutes before heading home with a chance to close the Heat out in Game 5 on Tuesday. Wade led all scorers with 25 points off the Heat bench, 12 of them coming in the fourth. But it wasnt enough. They dont let you off the hook,Ž Wade said, tipping his cap to the 76ers. You make one mistake, or you take your foot off the gas for one second, they make you pay.Ž Wade doesnt have a contract for next season. Hes said if he plays, hell be back with Miami „ though theres no guarantees. And that means Saturday might have been his last home game in a Heat uniform. If he knows what the future holds, he didnt offer any hints. Im focused on the next game, trying to win that one,Ž Wade said. Simmons became the first rookie since Magic Johnson in 1980 to post a playoff triple-double „ 17 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists. Joel Embiid finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds for Philadelphia. We took care of business,Ž Embiid said. Wade carried the comeback effort, with the Heat down six and less than 2 minutes left. His three-point play cut the margin in half and his next two field goals got Miami within one each time. The Heat got no closer. Goran Dragic scored 20, James Johnson had 15 and Hassan Whiteside finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds for Miami, which now needs to pull off some history. The Heat have erased a 3-1 deficit only once, in 1997 against New York. We all feel that were this close,Ž said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, holding his thumb and index finger maybe a millimeter apart. Thats what makes this game tough. They made bigger plays than us in the fourth quarter.ŽNBAFrom Page 1Tampa Bays lead to one goal with three minutes left. Will Butcher and Taylor Hall assisted on the only goal for New Jersey, which played without injured defenseman Sami Vatanen. Sergachev was second among NHL rookie defensemen in scoring with 40 points (nine goals, 31 assists) during the regular season and had had an assist for his first career postseason point in his playoff debut in Game 1. New Jersey kept it close, killing off four consecutive penalties in the second p eriod, when the Lightning outshot the Devils 18-4 but couldnt expand its one-goal lead. Schneider had two more saves early in the third as Tampa Bay sputtered on a fifth power-play opportunity. Notes: The Lightning was 0-for-10 on the power play in Games 4 and 5, y et won both games. ... Vatanen, New Jerseys top defenseman, was injured during the opening period of Game 4 when he was checked high by Kucherov. The Devils also played without RW Stefan Noesen, who was scratched with a lower-body injury. ... Callahan (upper body) returned after missing Games 3 and 4.NHLFrom Page 1By DAVE CAMPBELLAssociated PressMINNEAPOLIS „ Jimmy Butler hit four 3-pointers among his 28 points and KarlAnthony Towns snapped back from a bad start to the series with 18 points and 16 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves past the Houston Rockets 121-105 in Game 3 on Saturday night for their first postseason victory in 14 years. Jeff Teague scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins pitched in 20 points with another four 3-pointers, helping the Timberwolves match the fire-away Rockets from behind the arc and cruise down the stretch behind a 50 percent shooting performance. Derrick Rose added 17 points off the bench for the Wolves, who will try to even the series with a win in Game 4 on Monday night. James Harden led the way with 29 points, but Chris Paul fouled out with 17 points and the Rockets went just 15 for 41 from 3-point range. The Rockets made four 3-pointers on their last seven possessions of the first half to turn an 11-point deficit to just one in less than 3 minutes up until the break. Butler twisted his left ankle during that stretch, causing some brief anxiety in the arena. He didnt require, or accept, any medical attention and returned from the intermission without any hint that he was hurt. Taj Gibson hounded Harden and forced an airballed 3-pointer, prompting the apex of the noise throughout the night with the Wolves ahead 77-70. Towns powered his way past Ryan Anderson for a layup and a three-point play with 1:57 left in the third quarter, pushing the lead to 10 points, and he flexed his biceps to the crowd after the whistle as he walked like King Kong to the corner of the court in celebration. The Wolves closed that period on a 26-14 run and produced spurts of 15-3 and 11-2 in the fourth quarter to let loose as their plan to push a faster pace played out perfectly against a Rockets team that lost some energy in the venue shift north. Harden, who had 44 points in Game 1 but lost his rainbow jumper in Game 2 and finished only 2 for 18 from the floor for 12 points, wasnt a whole lot sharper in Game 3. He went 9 for 21, including 3 for 8 from 3-point range. Instead, a Wolves team that finished last in the NBA in 3-pointers made during the regular season, posted the second-highest total of 2017-18 while launching their way to a 15-for-27 performance.PELICANS 131, TRAIL BLAZERS 123: Anthony Davis scored 33 of his franchise playoff-record 47 points in the second half, and New Orleans completed a “ rst-round playoff sweep of Portland with a victory. Jrue Holiday capped his 41-point performance with an 18-foot pull-up jumper that gave the Pelicans a six-point lead with 40 seconds left. Rajon Rondo added 16 assists, and Davis also had 11 rebounds and three blocks for New Orleans, which is moving on to the second round of the playoffs for only the second time since the NBA returned to the city 16 seasons ago. C.J. McCollum scored 38 for the Trail Blazers, which responded to a blowout loss in Game 3 by keeping Game 4 close until the “ nal minute. Al-Farouq Aminu scored 27, Damian Lillard added 18 points and Jusuf Nurkic had 18 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out.NBA ROUNDUPButler, Towns lead T-wolves past Rockets 121-105 in Game 3AP PHOTOMinnesota Timberwolves Jimmy Butler, left, shoots as Houston Rockets Eric Gordon, center, and Nene, of Brazil, watch in the first half during Game 3 Saturday, in Minneapolis. By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressWASHINGTON „ Overtime came at the perfect time for the Washington Capitals. Outshot, outskated and outplayed by the Columbus Blue Jackets in a lopsided third period of Game 5, the Capitals went into their locker room at intermission Saturday with no choice but to talk about what went wrong in blowing yet another lead. We knew we had to be better,Ž Nicklas Backstrom said. Better they were in a dominant overtime that Backstrom ended 11:53 in with his second goal of the game to give Washington a 4-3 victory and a 3-2 lead over the Blue Jackets in the first-round series. Thanks to goaltender Braden Holtby making 15 of his 39 saves in the third period and Backstroms first two goals of these playoffs, the Metropolitan Division champions can close out Columbus on the road Monday in Game 6. I think weve always regrouped at intermissions and came back,Ž said Holtby, who has stopped 102 of 109 shots since replacing Philipp Grubauer in net two periods into Game 2. It shows our confidence and our experience in a lot of areas.Ž The playoff-tested Capitals took punch after punch when they were outshot 16-1 by the Blue Jackets in the third period, including Oliver Bjorkstrands deflection goal 2:30 in that tied it. Holtby made saves in quantity and quality, most notably on Columbus No. 1 center Pierre-Luc Dubois on a rebound and again on an attempt to bat the puck out of the air, to get to overtime for the fourth time in five games this series. Thats when everything changed. Suddenly, two-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was besieged, having to stop Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson from point-blank range early in overtime. We just came out as a new team,Ž Carlson said. Weve went out and attacked in every game that weve won. That was our mindset, and I think we played a great overtime.Ž Overtime has been the difference in this series. Artemi Panarin and Matt Calvert scored the winners in Games 1 and 2 for Columbus, Lars Eller in double OT in Game 3 for Washington and then Backstrom in Game 5, deflecting defenseman Dmitry Orlovs shot past Bobrovsky to send the sellout crowd in Washington into a frenzy.NHL ROUNDUPCapitals take 3-2 series lead on Jackets

The Sun / Sunday, April 22, 2018 www.yoursun.com SP Page 3By JIM VERTUNOAssociated PressAUSTIN, Texas „ MotoGP promised tougher sanctions for dangerous racing. Marc Marquez is the first to feel their sting. Marquez thought his blistering pace on his Repsol Honda had secured yet another pole position at the MotoGP Grand Prix of the Americas. Then it was gone, snatched away with a penalty for interfering with a hot lap by Movistar Yamaha rival Maverick Vinales. That means Marquez, who has dominated the Circuit of the Americas since 2013, will not start on pole for the first time in six years and will instead start fourth. And it offers a sliver of hope to rest of the field that someone else might top the Texas podium on Sunday. That could be Vinales, who got the bump up to pole position. Marquez seemed unruffled by the penalty. He was at ease and smiling during the post-qualifying news conference just minutes after the sanction was announced. I went fastest. Tomorrow will be the race,Ž Marquez said. My style is my style. Maverick has a good pace and maybe tomorrow in the race he can be faster than me.Ž But the penalty means yet another week of racing controversy for the four-time MotoGP champion. MotoGP officials had promised tougher penalties after a wild race in Argentina that saw Marquez in the middle of several crashes and dustups with other riders. Marquez was penalized three times in Argentina, including sanctions for making contact with Aleix Espargaro and bumping Valentino Rossi, causing Rossi to crash. The penalties cost Marquez dearly as he finished 18th in a race he was favored to win. The four-time MotoGP champion is still looking for his first win of 2018. Vinales declined to criticize Marquez after qualifying, but his body language on the bike indicated he was upset. He was on a good lap when Marquez got in his way, and Vinales angrily waved at him as they rode past each other. Riding too slow in the racing lane is considered a danger to other riders. Marquez said he was looking at Suzukis Andrea Iannone ahead of him and was surprised when Vinales came up from the rear. Iannone will start second on Sunday. I didnt expect Vinales,Ž Marquez said. Then I heard an engine behind me ... they said I was in the racing line.Ž Marquez day was a wild one. A hard fall earlier in qualifying sent him and his motorcycling tumbling and spinning into the gravel. A quick bike change gave him time to lay down his best lap of the day. Vinales wouldnt say if he could have taken pole without the interference. Im focused on what Im doing,Ž Vinales said. Marquez is still showing dominant form on a track that hes made a personal playground since his rookie season. Marquez has won all five races here and has rarely failed to top the timesheets in practice. Hes also won 12 straight races in the U.S. dating back to his first Moto2 race at Indianapolis in 2011. Not everyone is so comfortable. Several riders have complained this week about bumpy track conditions. The Circuit of the Americas was built for Formula One and the heavy cars and the soft, clay-based soil underneath have caused bumps and dips that have frustrated the motorcycle riders. Despite efforts to fix them since last years race, several riders have been very critical of the circuit again this year, most notably seven-time MotoGP champion Rossi, who called the bumps a disasterŽ and criticalŽ for riders who deal with them at high speed. For me its the worst situation during all the season. You have three or four bumps that are very big,Ž Rossi said. Track President Bobby Epstein said MotoGP safety officials had given the all clear for the track prior to the race weekend. Epstein said there was work done overnightŽ Friday to address the riders complaints, but he did not immediately provide details.AUTO RACING: MotoGPMarquez penalty puts Vinales on poleOAKLAND, Calif. „ Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been cleared to take part in modified practices but will be out at least one more week with a left knee injury.

By TALES AZZONIAssociated PressMADRID „ If it was a farewell, Andres Iniesta went out in style. The veteran midfielder is expected to soon confirm hes leaving Barcelona at the end of the season. He couldnt have asked for a better way to say goodbye. Iniesta scored amid a brilliant performance as Barcelona crushed Sevilla 5-0 in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday, and became the first team in 85 years to win four straight Copa titles. It was a great night, for me and for the whole team,Ž Iniesta said. There were a lot of strong emotions, a lot of different feelings. Im happy to be able to help the team win this title.Ž Despite a lifetime contract at Barcelona, the 33-year-old Iniesta has been linked to a move to Chinese football. He will reveal his decision in the next week. Its a spectacle to watch Andres play,Ž Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said. He has to make a decision and see if he wants to come back next season.Ž Luis Suarez scored twice and Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho also made the scoresheet for Barcelonas record-extending 30th Copa triumph, and sixth in the last decade. We played a great match, with a lot of determination,Ž Valverde said. Sevilla was trying to win a sixth Copa and save a season which will end without any trophies and maybe not even a place in the Europa League next season. Barcelona ... played a formidable match,Ž Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella said. The final took place at Atletico Madrids Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in the capital amid the ongoing political turmoil involving Catalonias bid for independence. There were jeers by part of the Barcelona crowd when the national anthem was played, but the boos were largely subdued by the reaction of the numerous Sevilla fans in the crowd. Spains King Felipe VI smiled and saluted the fans after the anthem. Suarez opened the scoring with a shot into the open net after a breakaway that started with goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen in the 14th minute. Cillessen made a long pass from inside his area to Coutinho. The Brazilian playmaker entered the box free from markers before making a pass back to Suarez, who just tapped the ball in. Messi scored with a mid-height shot from the middle of the area after a great backheel pass by Jordi Alba off the end line. Messi became the second player to score in five Copa del Rey finals, after Athletic Bilbaos Telmo Zarra. Suarez scored again before halftime with a low shot after picking up a great throughball by Messi and fending off a defender while entering the area. Iniesta scored the fourth in the 52nd after a quick exchange of passes with Messi. He dribbled past goalkeeper David Soria and shot into an empty net. Iniesta received a huge ovation by fans from both clubs when he was substituted near the end of the match. He then lifted the trophy, his sixth in the Copa. Last year, Iniesta became the first player to sign a lifetime contract with Barcelona, a deal allowing him to keep playing for the club for as long as he remained fit. Coutinho closed the scoring by converting a 69th-minute penalty kick after a handball by a Sevilla defender. No other team had won four Copa titles in a row since Athletic Bilbao from 1930-33. The only other team to do it was Real Madrid from 1905-08. Barcelona is also three points away from winning the Spanish league. Sevilla lies seventh, the final spot guaranteeing a Europa League berth next season. It was Sevillas eighth straight match without a win in all competitions.COPA DEL REY: Barcelona 5, Sevilla 0Barcelona easily wins historic 4th straight Copa del ReyAP PHOTOFC Barcelonas Andres Iniesta, centre, with teammates as they celebrate during an award ceremony after defeating Sevilla 5-0 in the Copa del Rey final soccer match at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid, Spain, Saturday. I really had a lot of chances in the first set to have (a) little bit better score.

He beat Nadal in their last encounter two years ago to take the bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Associated PressCHICAGO „ White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar was in stable but critical condition Saturday, a day after suffering a brain hemorrhage while in the dugout during a game. Farquhar passed out in the sixth inning Friday night after getting two outs against Houston. He was helped by team medical personnel and on-site EMTs, and regained consciousness before he was taken to a hospital by ambulance. The White Sox announced that additional testing revealed the brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm. Farquhar was receiving treatment and being closely monitored in the neurosurgical ICU unit at Rush University Medical center. Manager Rick Renteria met with players before Saturdays game against Houston and updated them on Farquhars condition. Asked if the right-hander required surgery, Renteria said, Well see how they proceed and hopefully the outcome is a positive one.Ž The team said it will provide updates on Farquhars health as appropriate, but requested privacy for the family. The 31-year-old fainted moments after leaving the mound. Renteria said Saturday that Farquhar had a strong heartbeat, a good pulse and was breathing wellŽ when he left Guaranteed Rate Field after passing out. Renteria said no one on the team saw advance signs that Farquhar might be suffering from the condition. Farquhars diagnosis stunned his teammates. Yeah, I mean, it crushes us in this clubhouse,Ž said James Shields, who started Fridays game. And nothing really matters baseball-wise when something like that happens, you know.Ž Hes definitely stable from what we hear, but hes got a long way to go and hes fighting,Ž he said. Houston manager A.J. Hinch said some of his players saw Farquhar collapse. We could see across the way that something was going on,Ž he said. As the group went around him, it just became a scary scene.Ž Then this morning getting that update, its very scary,Ž he said. Farquhar was selected by Toronto in the 10th round of the 2008 draft and made his major league debut with the Blue Jays in 2011. The right-hander is 10-15 with a 3.93 ERA in 253 career relief appearances with Toronto, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Chicago. The White Sox put Farquhar on the 10-day disabled list. Righthander Gregory Infante was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, April 22, 2018 / The SunMARC TOPKINTimes staff writerThe Rays have made it official … or as official as things can be with them … in naming RHP Yonny Chirinos as the fourth starter in their rotation. The Rays had been using three, and two "Bullpen Day" slots when playing five straight days. But Chirinos showed well enough in his first three appearances (two starts) and apparently not enough for the Rays to be concerned about when his last one went bad, that he now will take a regular turn, starting Sunday against the Twins. Manager Kevin Cash said a key was getting Chirinos built up to the point where he could be counted on for 100 pitches. Also, that it took them about three weeks of regular-season play to get a better handle on how all the long relievers could handle the workload and responsibilities. "I think we're in a better spot now with Yonny in the rotation," Cash said. As they are now set up, they have RHP Chris Archer, LHP Blake Snell, RHP Jake Faria as starters. The primary remaining multi-inning relievers are RHP Matt Andriese, RHP Andrew Kittredge, RHP Austin Pruitt, and LHP Ryan Yarbrough.Rays will go forth w ith Chirinos as fourth starterAP PHOTORays starting pitcher Yonny Chirinos th rows against the Chicago White Sox during the first inning Wednesday.

By BRYAN LEVINESports WriterPORT CHARLOTTE „ Willy Ortiz had himself a career night for the Charlotte Stone Crabs on Saturday. For the first time in his seven seasons as a minor leaguer, Ortiz completed seven innings, and did so in a 5-2 win over the Palm Bech Cardinals. Ortiz surrendered just one run „ unearned „ and limited the Cardinals to just five hits. The right-hander stranded six runners on base while holding Palm Beach to an 0-for-4 night with runners in scoring position. He also came one strikeout shy of his career-best mark of eight and walked just one batter. Reliever Roel Ramirez racked up three strikeouts in a fourout save. The Stone Crabs offense supplied more than enough support for Ortiz, who left the game with a 5-1 lead after seven innings. David Rodriguez has had a strong start to the series against Palm Beach. After a 2-for-3 performance with a double and RBI on Friday night, he came right back on Saturday with two more hits, another double, a run scored and three RBI. Jesus Sanchez also had a nice night with the bat, going 2-for-3 with two runs, a double and an RBI. Defensive miscues plagued the Stone Crabs in the first inning. Miles Mastrobuoni and Kevin Padlo each committed errors which eventually allowed Kramer Robertson to score the games first run off Ortiz. Charlotte answered back with two runs in the second inning with Sanchez and Rodriguez scoring runs. They added to their lead in the sixth inning with three runs with an RBI from Sanchez and two from Rodriguez.

The lm industry has been churning out adaptations of games like World of Warcraft and Assassins Creed for years, but theres something about turning these popular games into two-hour narratives that almost always fails. The things that often make video games successful „ generic characters, simple plots, lots of violence „ often make movies dull and frustrating. And yet, lmmakers keep trying, most recently with a new Tomb Raider lm and an adaptation of Rampage But a few lms stand out from the pack. We rounded up the ve best video-game lms available to rent or stream. And no, we did not include A ngry Birds If you love Angelina Jolie: Lara Croft: Tomb RaiderAlicia Vikander did her best in a poorly constructed lm in the recent Tomb Raider adaptation,but theres no replacing Jolies version of the character, which became a pop culture touchstone in the early 2000s. Sure, the movie is hammy and the costume is, shall we say, less than practical, but Jolie is a magnetic presence and sells every inch of the two movies. Stream it on Netix.If you want a marathon: The Resident Evil franchiseResident Evil is probably the most successful video game adaptation franchise, spawning six movies (so far) and turning Milla J ovovich into a star. The rst of the series feels almost tame compared with the wild heights the later lms would reach (in both story and CGI), but it remains one of the bestwritten video-game lms, which is saying something. Rent or buy them on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu or YouTube.If you like great martial arts: Mortal KombatThis 1995 lms biggest strength is in its simplicity. The lm doesnt try to be more than the premise of the game: A group of dierent ghters battling for the fate of the world. Theres action, great costumes and hokey lines that dont feel too hokey. Stream it on Netix.If you want to feel like youre watching a video game: DoomTheres no mistaking this 2005 lm for anything but a video game adaptation. It revels in using aspects of videogame storytelling in its visuals, including a scene that feels like a rst-person-shooterŽ game. It also gets bonus points for being one of Dwayne The RockŽ Johnsons rst feature lms. Stream it on Crackle.If you enjoy the more ridiculous side of the genre: Prince of Persia: The Sands of TimeOK, heres the thing. The Prince of Persia is not a great movie. It also came under criticism for whitewashing the cast. But it does have lush visuals, and it plays less like a video-game adaptation and more like a straight adventure lm. Rent or buy it on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu or YouTube.BINGEINGIf youre game for some fun, try theseKelly LawlerUSA TODAY If you cant get out to see Dwayne Johnson in Rampage,Ž cozy up with him and Karl Urban in Doom.ŽUNIVERSAL STUDIOS Milla J ovovich has played Alice in six Resident EvilŽ lms, and there may be more on the way.ROLF KONOW/SCREEN GEMS Mortal Kombat,Ž with Robin Shou, has no pretensions. NEW LINE CINEMA acters in whats easily the years most hotly anticipated new play, the latest installment in J.K. Rowlings immortal Harry Potter franchise. Cursed Child was a huge hit in its run on Londons West End, and judging from the $2 million in sales it raked in for its record-breaking week, it seems poised to replicate that success on Broadway. (The show opens Sunday.) Cursed Childis a blockbuster production in every sense, from its ve-hour run time staged in two installments, to the extensive renovations that Broadways Lyric Theatre made to accommodate the show. Then there are the stunning visual eects which, thanks to a #KeepTheSecrets movement imploring audience members not post details on social media, have stayed largely hush-hush.As Parker explains, the shows details are there, if you go looking for it,Ž but theres something cruelŽ about spoiling Cursed Child s magic. One thing he could divulgethat wont be a surprise to any readers of Rowlings original booksis that Harry Potter „ who, like the other two lead characters, is an adult with children in the new play „ struggles with the same angst he did as a teen at Hogwarts. Has he got past his childhood? Thats a big question. Did he ever get past 17 in the rst place?Ž Parker asks. And thank God hes still surrounded by Ron and Hermione and the people who keep him on the straight and narrow, because he does take a lot of unpacking. But I think you still recognize him from the book.Ž As for Ron Weasley, the goofy-asever character who provides much of Cursed Child s comic relief, Thornley recalled the somewhat ominous advice that Rowling, who developed Cursed Child alongside director John Tiany and writer Jack Thorne, once gave him. She said to me, You know, Ron is most peoples favorite character,Ž he says. No pressure.Ž But it was Dumezweni, an awardwinning actress who was born in Swaziland, who got the most press when Cursed Child s casting was announced for the shows London run, with fans mostly celebrating „ but sometimes questioning „ the choice to cast a woman of color as Hermione. Im a black actress, Im a black woman, thats what the world has told me I am,Ž Dumezweni says. Ive got dierent color of skin; my melanin is bigger and much more glowy than these two boys,Ž she said, aectionately gesturing to her co-stars. But this is who I am, and as an actress, I get to play Hermione. The world is saying, Black Hermione, and Im (saying), I get to play Hermione. Ž She points to Hermiones universal appeal as further evidence that her characters skin color is beside the point. The thing about Hermione, which is brilliant for me about her, is that every woman ... we all go to that character and go, I want to be her, I want to change the world, Im going to save my friends. And for me, shes a bit of a superhero.Ž Harry, Ron and Hermoine all are outsiders, Dumezweni points out. And thats why as human beings we go, Yeah, someone else can see me. And thats what J.K. Rowling did brilliantly.ŽThese themes of belonging and acceptance are central to Cursed Child, which, like Rowlings original novels, tells the story of young people searching for their places in the world, and sometimes clashing with their parents along the way.As parents, theres the constant, endless, unhelpful battle to be a perfect parent, at which I almost certainly fail almost every day,Ž Thornley says. There is that story (in Cursed Child ) for them. And also younger people (can) go, Oh yeah, maybe Im a bit like that sometimes. Maybe my dad is a bit like that sometimes. Ž As for the identity of the shows titular Cursed Child,Ž the three actors demurred. Yet its not a spoiler to say the play reects todays real-life sociopolitical turmoil, from warring government factions to rising authoritarian forces.Youve always got to ask yourself, Why this story, why now? Ž Parker says. And (playwrights) John (Tiany), Jack (Thorne) and Jo (Rowling) ltered it through the questions of the dangers of revising history and listening to the next generation coming up behind you, and how its it relevant to the biggest story at work in the world at the moment.ŽAnd how we as human beings connect with each other,Ž Dumezweni adds. And its got to be a big fun story about wizards at the same time,Ž Parker cracks. And in keeping with the original books, whatever emotional catharsis viewers nd in Cursed Childwont come easily for the perpetually tortured Harry, Ron and Hermione, who, even in adulthood, are called upon to save humanity. Isnt it a rare thing, telling hopeful stories now?Ž Parker asks. I think we need more of that, to be honest. And its not about being trite or sentimental. Any of the happiness thats found anywhere in the books, into the eighth installment and the play, is incredibly hard won. The families that we see coming to see it, they hear this story loud and clear, and by the end of it, you see generations looking at each other going, Whew.ŽPotterContinued from Page 1U The cast also includes Sam Clemmett and Poppy Miller as Albus and Ginny Potter, Alex Price and Anthony Boyle as the Malfoys.CHARLIE GRAY PUZZLEANSWERS PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHERMaribel Perez WadsworthCHIEF REVENUE OFFICERKevin Gentzel 7950 Jones Branch Dr., McLean, Va. 22108, 703-854-3400 Published by Gannett USA TODAY LIFE is published weekly.

USA TODAY LIFE SUNDAY,APRIL22,2018 3 TRAVELadditions. Europe is heavily represented. A recent surge in South American tourists has been noticed. Visions of a vibrant Route 66 burn brightly amid the photos, paintings and other decor on the nostalgia-bearing walls. A re-creation of a 1950s diner with polished chrome furniture, a jukebox and black-and-white-tile ooring reminds travelers of a time when Americas lifeblood pulsed along the highway. Visitors captivated by a bygone era browse shelves lled with tremendously popular souvenirs. Nine out of 10 customers hail from outside the USA. They snap up items representing this likely once-in-a-lifetime trip. But they didnt come just for T-shirts and magnets and license plates. They want to experience a slice of Americana, where the open road promises a journey between destinations.A dilapidated roadside gemJohn Pritchard has lost count of the times he had driven his 1957 red Corvette past the dilapidated outpost while visiting his vacation home in Lake Havasu City. For 15 years the oddity caught his eye but it seemed just another roadside stop worn down by inattention. Until one da y in the late 1990s when HACKBERRY, Ariz. … Shortly after noon on a crisp day, the winter sun hanging low in the sky, a solitary Toyota speeds past a building that appears cobbled together from the wood and rusted metals that pile up on the shoulders of lonesome highways. Taillights blaze as the sedan makes a U-turn, the two-lane ribbon of Route 66 asphalt just wide enough to permit it. The car glides over a patch of desert smoothed by a thousand tires. It stops next to a building held up by faith and rusty nails. A brother and sister more than 5,000 miles from home climb out of the sedan, eager to explore what they had realized while speeding bywas one of their target destinations along historic Route 66.Hackberry General StoreHackberry General Store is a mustsee destination for Sergio and Andra Goder of Barcelona, in the midst of a four-month American vacation. Sergio says that getting kicks on Route 66 is a rite of passage for Spaniards visiting the American West. Friends expect to see his social-media posts lled with iconic images from the famous highway. As he and his sister sped along a lonely stretch of blacktop carved through the high Arizona desert, Sergio blinked, nearly missing one of the highways most emblematic stops. Because at 65 mph, the store and former garage appears to have lost its battle against time. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. It came out of nowhere,Ž Sergio says as he browsed the stores large selection of Route 66 license plates, signs and T-shirts. If we had missed it, that would have been bad.Ž He noticed two things as he sped by: the Hackberry General Store sign, and the fact that its patchwork structure was free of the chain-link fencing that sealed o some structures hed seen. If not for a reclusive artist, a nostalgic businessman and a retiree who couldnt let an icon slip away, the Hackberry General Store might have been another victim of Interstate 40, which for years made Route 66 irrelevant. The store not only survives, it thrives. Despite appearances to the contrary.At the crossroads of middle and nowhereHackberry General Store is the only sign of civilization for miles. Its rusted signs boasting of things that havent been there for decades (gas, oil, the Greyhound bus) seem to serve a dual purpose „ setting the mood and holding up the building. The store hunches quietly behind two vintage gas pumps whose state of disrepair is not obvious enough to keep some visitors from pulling up to them. Before this was a general store, it was a service station and garage.Inside the store, vintage and modern license plates upholster the ceiling, with room remaining for the additions mailed or delivered in person by patrons.Patches and currency from around the world blanket one wall, workers takin g time each month to p ost the latest he noticed someone inside. Thats when he met Bob Waldmire, an artist/cartographer/historian who had purchased the property years earlier, reopening the business in 1992 oering Route 66 souvenirs as well as tourist information. Given Waldmires roots „ his father ran a hot-dog stand on Route 66 in Illinois „ he preserved the store in its ramshackle state. For Pritchard and his wife, Kerry, it was love at 30th or 40th sight. After some negotiation, the couple were the proud owners of the only store within 10 miles. Armed with the perfect motive to retire, Pritchard moved his wife and two sons from Tacoma, Wash., to Arizona. The store provided the two things Pritchard was looking for: a hobby and plenty of space for his expansive collection of Route 66 memorabilia. It seemed like destiny for the Class of 66 graduate and longtime fan of the Mother Road.Fueling a passionWhen Pritchard opened the Hackberry General Store in 1998, it was part souvenir stand, part museum and all passion. He covered the walls with black-and-white p hotos of stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood, whose prime coincided with that of Route 66. Vintage gas pumps, still in their broken-down state, went up outside, as did metal signs that years ago had lost their battle with the elements, bullets or both. Pritchard installed his ode to a 1950s diner. Like Waldmire, he left the exterior as is, hardly ready for its close-up unless it was with a wrecking ball. But that was the key to the stores charm. The rundown look was a beacon to nostalgiaseeking travelers, as was Pritchards 57 Corvette parked outside. It wasnt long before Hackberry General Store attracted all sorts of attention. We had a Playboy photo shoot,Ž Pritchard says. American Airlines did a travel story on us. We were on the Arizona Highways TV show. It got so famous in that rst year or two.ŽThe decision to sell the storeWhen Pritchard decided it was time to retire, his employee and friend Amy Franklin made an oer neither could refuse. She named a price and Pritchard stuck out his hand. I knew the books,Ž Franklin says. He knew I knew the books. Deal.Ž When Franklin entered the store on Jan. 4, 2016, she had the same thought she did when she saw the store for the rst time 17 years before. Oh my God, this is so cool,Ž she thought in 1999. Now she added, And I own it.Ž Her appreciation for the ramshackle station deepened as she greeted customers from all over the world. Franklin saw the wonder in their eyes as they told her how they had saved for years to drive Route 66. Franklin retains the charming postapocalyptic look that visitors expected. Where time, at least over a few acres, remains frozen for those who enjoy a rare peek into the rear-view mirror.If you go11255 Route 66, Kingman, Ariz. hackberr yg eneralstore.com The gas pumps outside Hackberry General Store havent worked in more than 20 years, but a car still pulls up on occasion.

4 SUNDAY,APRIL22,2018 USA TODAY LIFE Scenic drives are great, but for a unique and historic way to see Wisconsin landscapes, theres an old kid on the block: a scenic train ride. Its ironic how popular theyve become, considering Americans left passenger railroads in favor of personal automobiles in the 1950s. But tourist trains are mostly thriving, drawing families and railroad enthusiasts for rides aboard historic, restored cars that trigger a nostalgia for older riders and fascination with an uncommon mode of transportation for kids. I think theyre popular because theyre kind of like reliving history,Ž said Steve Thomas, a volunteer and ocer with the East Troy Electric Railroad.

USA TODAY LIFE SUNDAY,APRIL22,2018 5 BOOKSIts the 50th birthday of a lm that was supposed to be „ and denitely is „ the proverbial really good science ction movie,Ž and Michael Bensons exhaustive new book about the making of 2001: A Space Odyssey stars the two men at the center of an inuential powerhouse. In 1968, 2001 changed the game for the scigenre. Until that point, science ction movies were mainly considered trash. Then a couple of cultural giants „ novelist Arthur C. Clarke and lmmaker Stanley Kubrick „ got together and created an astounding, philosophical and downright Homeric work that explored evolution, articial intelligence and the existence of alien life in the universe. Space Odyssey: Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. Clarke and the Making of a Masterpiece (Simon & Schuster, 512 pp., eeeE ) eectively chronicles all of it, down to the smallest spaceship details and the most petty business decisions. The book presents in a fairly straightforward manner the four years between director Kubrick and author Clarkes initial meeting and 2001 s release. They were fans of each others work: Kubrick, coming o Dr. Strangelove yearned to make a groundbreaking sciepic, and the older Clarke, a sciicon even then, wanted to break into Hollywood. They became a cinematic equivalent to McCartney and Lennon, two talented visionaries who became friends and created something epic while also navigating the friction between them. And something as mind-blowing and esoteric as 2001 which begins with early man-apes discovering a black monolith and then blasts into the future with astronauts dealing with an AI on the verge of a breakdown (the antagonistic HAL-9000), is going to have its setbacks. Benson skillfully digs into the budget-busting actions and plot problems, because the script was constantly changing during lming and it took forever for Kubrick to gure out the trippy ending. Its enlightening stu, especially for casual fans of the movie, about how Kubrick got struggling actors to learn their lines and the near-mutiny of the special-eects department when the lmmaker considered having his main characters travel to Saturn instead of Jupiter. Hardcore 2001 nerds will dig the nuts and bolts of the designs of the Dawn of ManŽ opening and the memorable Star Gatesequence. Theres loads of trivia (the movies costumer plotted the assassination of Nazis!) and Benson weaves in supporting personalities who put readers on ground zero of the lming chaos. But, like a good Beatles tune when those two songwriters are clicking, Space Odyssey is fueled by the dynamic between Kubrick and Clarke. Both had their egos, sure, yet powered through dierences to make something great. Clarke had to deal with other personal business during the making of 2001 and worried that Kubrick would be bothered by his homosexuality (he wasnt). And the lmmaker himself, who had a reputation for being brilliant but cold, is given a fair amount of warmth by Benson: One passage nds Kubrick directing his young daughter for avoice-over thats more than a little adorable. Space Odyssey is a solid companion piece to a sciclassic, both for newbies trying to gure out the movies existential questions and longtime HAL lovers who want to know everything about two guys and their grand movie mission.REVIEW Dr. David Bowman (Keir Dullea) faces the great unknown in novelist Arthur C. Clarke and lmmaker Stanley Kubricks 1968 work of art. APSPACE ODYSSEY: EVEN HAL WOULD APPROVE Brian TruittColumnist USA TODAY Author Michael Benson2001: A Space Odyssey: Book celebrates 50th anniversary of scimovie masterpieceImagine growing up the child of Pablo Picasso or Paul Gauguin. That alone might persuade you to read Tom Rachmans third novel, The Italian Teacher (Viking, 352 pp., eeee ), a poignant, touching tale about living in the shadow of brazen artistic genius. Otherwise, reading Rachman is simply trendy if you appreciate literary ctions brightest, newest voices. The story of The Italian Teacher begins in 1955 in Rome. Bear Bavinski,a noted American artist, has left a family in the States and moved in with aspiring ceramist Natalie „ who is his wife and former model „ along with their 5-year-old son, Charles, known as Pinch. At rst, everythings lovingly quirky „ Bear smoking his pipe in the cramped studio, roughhousing with Pinch, Natalie neglecting her pottery to accommodate Bears manic ts of creativity. Its everything youd picture from the private life of an eccentric artist „ almost. While Bear is charming, a huge personality, hes impossibly impulsive and self-centered. A agrant philanderer, his appetites „ sensual, aesthetic and culinary „ are insatiable. Little surprise hell abandon a half-dozen wives and 17 children, including Natalie and Pinch, as unremorsefully as he burns his untŽ paintings behind the studio. Nobody wants a well-behaved artist,Ž Rachman interjects. Yet, everybody loves Bear, including Pinch. Pinch is a bright, kindhearted son who idolizes his father andseeks Bears love and attention while struggling to nd his p lace in the world. The best-selling author of The Imperfectionists (2010) and The Rise & Fall of Great Powers (2014), Rachman writes compelling stories of the entangled lives of damaged, endearing characters and their struggles to discover who they are. For Pinch, that means trying to become an artist. At 15, encouraged by the single, cherished art lesson Bear once gave him, Pinch paints daily, looking forward to showing his art to his father. When he does, Bears ohanded dismissal crushes Pinch: I got to tell you, kiddo. Youre not an artist. And you never will be.Ž Pinchs next plan, to study art history in college and become Bears biographer, fails, too, sending him on a downward spiral of broken relationships and shattered dreams. Eventually, Pinch settles for a disillusioned existence teaching Italian at a London school. Rachmans narrative is rich with wordplay, clever dialogue and subtle insights. His plot twists blindside you. And his ensemble of lovable mists„ from Pinchs true love in college, Cilla Barrows,to his best friend, self-styled bohemian Marsden McClintock „ isunforgettable.

Pinchs scheme to succeed at that, and create his own identity, is the nale that will leave y ou sur p rised sad and u p lifted.REVIEWTeacher: A perfect portrait of failed geniusDon OldenburgSpecial to USA TODAY Author Tom RachmanTara Westover is living proof that some people are at-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable. Her new book, Educated (Random House, 334 pp., eeee ), is a heartbreaking, heartwarming, best-in-years memoir about striding beyond the limitations of birth and environment into a better life. At age 16, Westover, who had never attended school, who could only watch longingly as the school bus passed by on the highway every day, made a decision: She studied to pass college admission tests and got herself into Brigham Young University. She didnt have the sense or sophistication to know exactly what she was aiming for. She simply had the tiny nugget of an idea that other kids, normal kids, went to school and learned things, and that was probably a good thing. Her childhood had been hard and odd. She and her six siblings grew up in rural Idaho in a lthy, ramshackle house nestled against a mountain she loved and a chaotic junkyard she didnt. No television, radio or even telephone for many years. No doctor visits, no matter what. Her father was a domineering man who responded to conict or challenge with lectures about God and obsessed about armed Feds showing up at the door. The kids had head-for-the hillsŽ bags they could grab if they had to abandon their home and survive in the woods. He insisted on home births, and though some of the children attended school for a time, he eventually ruled all public schooling o-limits. He ordered that g uns, p rovisions and water be buried on the property so that when the apocalypse came „ when everyone (would be) drinking from puddles and living in darknessŽ „ his family would survive. The authors mother, an herbalist and midwife,rarely challenged her husband, abiding by his decrees and tending toinjuries „ including her own brain injury from a car wreck„ at home, with needles, thread, herbs and bed rest. Westover learned to drive a forklift when she was too young to drive a car, endured physical and emotional abuse by a brother, and was instructed in the art of shutting up,Ž as her mother called it. That required keeping utterly silent when possible and speaking little when it wasnt to protect the family. Westover is careful to present the good parts with the bad: She had loving relationships with her grandparents and a few friends outside the family; her father was at times tender; she was permitted to participate in local theater; and she worked in town sometimes. And even when presenting the rough parts, Westover, now 31, doesnt wail. She writes about it as she processed it when she was growing up insulated: in a straightforward manner. It wasnt until she reached her teen years that she began to realize not everyone lived this way. So she went o to BYU at 17 with 12 jars of home-canned peaches and a garbage bag full of clothes. She made few friends, had to cover enormous ground to make up for her cultural and booklearning ignorance, and yet, she received a doctoral degree from Cambridge. Its incredible, yes. But once you sift throu g h her life not so ver y sur p risin g .REVIEWMemoir Educated will horrify, then inspireSharon PetersSpecial to USA TODAY Author Tara Westover
