PHOTO FROM CDC/PUBLIC HEALTH IMAGE LIBRARYA historical image depicts workers creating a billboard in Columbus, Georgia, which shows one way used to promote public health awareness of polio vaccinations. This campaign was government-produced, when in the early 1950s, there were more than 20,000 cases of polio each year. After polio vaccination began in 1955, cases dropped signicantly where by 1960, there were about 3,000 cases. By 1979, there were only about 10 cases and now polio is thought to be eliminated from the U.S. PHOTOS FROM BARBARA MAYBERRYBarbara Mayberry suers from Post Polio Syndrome and had led a support group in the Naples area up until the end of April, when the group ended like the one in Charlotte County years ago due to declining membership resulting from more members experiencing mobility issues and death. Mayberry and her husband, David, stood recently in front of their RV that they enjoy driving throughout the country. PHOTO FROM MARCH OF DIMESA historic advertisement from the March of Dimes, which announced more than 50 years ago that it completed its original mission to nd a cure for polio by supporting the development and widespread use of two vaccines. Polios last standPost Polio Syndrome persists decades after infectionBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITER Barbara was pictured as a child with her doctor when she left St. John Hospital for Crippled Children in Springeld, Illinois, in February of 1953. She had entered the hospital on Aug. 12, 1952, to conrm the diagnosis of polio through a spintal tap. She spent one month in quarantine in the hospital before being transferred to the rehabilitation unit where she stayed for six months before being released to go home. PHOTO FROM CATER PICHECarter Piche of North Fort Myers has Post Polio Syndrome and had attended support group meetings in Charlotte County before they stopped gathering years ago, as well as meetings in Collier County, which held its last meeting in April. Membership had declined as many members suered decreasing mobility and some had died. SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLJudith Bacon suers from post-Polio syndrome and is partially paralyzed and wheelchair bound. Once able to type many words per minute and get herself into and out of bed, that has become a challenge in her later years. Since turning 67, Charlotte County resident Cathy Lane walks slowly, gets tired more easily and is increasingly concerned about falling. Physical activity has always been hard especially since she survived polio, which was one of the most feared and potentially fatal viruses in United States history, crippling people of all ages and walks of life. That included a president before vaccines evolved in 1955 to protect against it. But it has become harder than ever now just for Lane to move, since she has Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) that affects some polio survivors 15 to 40 years after the initial infection. Estimates vary for how many people are suffering from PPS „ involving intense fatigue, muscle weakness, and pain from joint deterioration. Nokomis resident Judith Bacon contracted the virus when she was just a few years old. Her sister told her they were at the dinner table eating when all of a sudden Bacon began screaming that she hurt so bad.Ž Fearful, her siblings hid under the table. Partially paralyzed and in a wheelchair most her life, what limited mobility Bacon had is becoming even less now with PPS. She used to be able to type quickly or hold herself up from her chair for a short amount of time. Not anymore. One article I read said with Post Polio Syndrome, if you live long enough, you revert back to the original paralysis,Ž Bacon said. I was totally paralyzed from the neck down.Ž PPS has made it even harder for Bacon to move through her home and care for herself. I may be going to a nursing home,Ž she said.POLIO | 4 BOTTOM LINEPost Polio Syndrome „ suffered by people who had polio beforeit was eradicated in the U.S. in 1979 „ is a disease thatsneaks up on older people and can cause great suffering andan inability to get around. With local unemployment on a decline, some businesses in Charlotte and Sarasota counties said “lling open positions has been challenging. For example, Patricia Annicelli, owner of Port Charlotte-based Rodgers Landscaping and Tree Service, posted some of their openings recently on job websites and received over 20 applications. No one showed up,Ž Annicelli said. I think theyre just going through the motions for unemployment.Ž But she said often applicants wont complete the paperwork, are unable to procure two proper forms of identi“cation, or have other issues. Ive heard so many excuses,Ž Annicelli said. That includes a text message from one applicant that said I have to walk my dogŽ rather than “ll out paperwork for the job. A new Harbor Freight Tools store in Port Charlotte was recently hiring for dozens of positions and the manager, Christina Jewel, said she also saw many people apply but then not return her calls. She ultimately got an array of jobs “lled, but con“rmed it was a struggle. Youd think if you were looking for a job, youd call back,Ž Jewel said. I dont know if with unemployment veri“cation you need to put in a certain number of applications?Ž asked Jewel. Or if they got another job in the meantime?Ž In Florida, people receiving unemployment bene“ts can receive up to $275 per week, up to 12 weeks, for a maximum of $3,300. Recipients must actively search for work, and report to the state when they are not able, or available, to seek or accept work. That means make a minimum of “ve veri“ableŽ job contacts each week and submit evidence of Employers struggle to hire workersBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITERWORKERS | 8Thank you to the many customers who gave us suggestions on how to counter the shortage of paper for us to print on. One of the most common reader suggestions was to use recycled newspapers. Treat your paper like some states treat empty bottles and cans. Include a deposit charge, say 25 cents per issue, refundable on return of the previous days edition. Task your delivery network to not only deliver the days edition, but also to collect the previous day (packed in the same polybag), recording the return by address and returning it through the same network that delivers the next days edition. Hard work, I know. But think of all the trees you would save...Ž „ FE Thats a great idea. I wish it would work, but it wont. Thats because the USA doesnt actually recycle newspapers. Thats right, 100 percent of the old newspapers you take to the street each week are classi“ed as wasteŽ and have zero resale value in the USA. Your old newsprint is loaded on a ship and sent to China. We dont recycle newsprint in the USA because it is more expensive to recycle paper than cut a tree down. How can that be? Most commercially harvested trees are cut down for lumber and sent to a sawmill. The sawmill shaves a very large square out of the tree trunk using as much of the tree trunk as possible.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 Survivors from Southwest Florida and beyond who recently spoke with the Sun agreed they dont believe their condition is a top priority as far as research, support, or mainstream awareness. The Florida Department of Health does not record data on those with a history of polio. There is no specific resources or assistance available to adults who contracted polio before the disease was eliminated in the country,Ž said FDOH Spokesperson Brad Dalton. The best resources for these individuals would be their local county health departments, or their primary care physician.Ž In Florida, prevaccine from 1941 to 1954 there was an average of 416 cases of polio and 24 deaths from acute polio per year. The vaccine was introduced in 1955 and polio was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 1979. From 2007 to 2016 there have been no reported cases of polio. The purpose of polio surveillance in Florida is to contribute toward global eradication of the disease and to detect and investigate cases early enough to prevent an outbreak,Ž Dalton said. Its kind of an unknown for many physicians,Ž Bacon said. They (people with PPS) are all dying off.Ž Even the March of Dimes organization founded to combat polio by the U.S. President who had polio, Franklin D. Roosevelt, isnt focused on PPS right now. Bacon was once even a poster child for March of Dimes, pictured in an old newspaper article as a young girl in her wheelchair. More than 50 years ago, March of Dimes completed its original mission to find a cure for polio by supporting the development and widespread use of two safe and effective vaccines „ one by Dr. Jonas Salk and one by Dr. Albert Sabin,Ž said March of Dimes spokesperson Michele Kling. Thanks to the vaccines, polio was eliminated from the United States. So March of Dimes created a new mission: Today we lead the fight to improve the health of all moms and babies.Ž But the organization didnt forget about polio, Kling said, noting that almost 18 years ago, March of Dimes sponsored an international conference on best practices in the diagnosis and management of PPS. Findings from the conference were widely disseminated to patients and health care professionals, but there are no plans for another conference, Kling said. Our funds are fully engaged in our current mission,Ž she said. There are a number of active post-polio support and advocacy groups, so March of Dimes does not see a gap we need to fill at this stage. We get few requests from people for information about PPS nowadays, and we usually refer them to Post-Polio Health International (Ž But support groups that once met from Florida to Michigan are losing members as they age and suffer from PPS, making mobility even more limited. Theres just not much attention to the syndrome unfortunately,Ž said Dr. Joseph Ravid, who practices in Punta Gorda and has treated an estimated dozen or so patients with PPS over the past eight years. Some people who experienced polio decades ago are now prone to experience PPS, since there is a residual effect from the disease as it rears its ugly head,Ž according to Ravid. Dr. Marny Eulberg runs, to her knowledge, the only post polio traveling clinic out of Colorado with 1,000 people on its mailing list. Eulberg and Ravid said most medical schools do not currently concentrate on PPS. I went to med school (1970-74) before PPS had been identified but polio was only briefly mentioned and more in a historical context or as an interesting virus,Ž Eulberg said. Eulberg also agreed many polio support groups that started in the late 1980s and early 1990s are disbanding now. In her early 50s, Lane was the youngest member of the Post Polio Support Group of Charlotte County when most members could still attend meetings. At its height around 70 people showed up for meetings around 10 years ago. The focus wasnt just on how polio affected them when they were younger „ but also on how it was affecting them in their older age. The group started to dwindle. Members died or become too exhausted or physically unable to meet up anymore and the group ceased, according to Lane. Her phone number tied to the group remains online and she still gets monthly calls from people asking for information. But Lane said she referred those calls to another PPS support group in Naples. And according to its leader, Barbara Mayberry, they too have just recently ceased meeting. Mayberry said their meetings ended for the same reasons as they did in Charlotte County. The last meeting in Naples was in April. There were 125 people on its roster with around 300 people who had come and gone over 15 years that Mayberry said she led the group. Last year, Mayberry said, around 30 to 40 were attending, and this year that had declined to around 20 to 25 people. She still plans to keep in touch with members by email. I love sharing information about PPS with others to help them understand what having polio was like and what the symptoms of PPS are to help create more awareness,Ž Mayberry said.  When those of us who had polio are all gone, that is a part of medical history that will most likely be forgotten as the newer generations will know nothing about polio.Ž Lane and Mayberry said group attendees were often people wintering in the area. They said polio survivors are especially uncomfortable in cold weather. Bruce Sachs has led the Michigan polio network for 12 years, and he said he winters in Florida and attends meetings with Boca Raton area PPS support group. Although this group continues to lose members, they continue to produce a monthly newsletter, have winter meetings, lunch around each month, and coordinate annual Caribbean cruises,Ž said Sachs. Some of the other Florida groups are not doing as well.Ž The Michigan state organization will also end soon and transition to Post-Polio Health International on Dec. 1, he said. The closest PPS support group is still meeting in Tampa. Tracking polio survivors is really impossible,Ž Sachs said. Although the major polio epidemics were between 1930 to late 1950 most hospitals were ill equipped to deal with the number of patients. Some minor polio cases were sent home without being registered.Ž And Sachs noted hospitals are only required to keep records for around seven years. I was able to get my records in 2002, but they were incomplete,Ž Sachs said. Some experts believe, before the vaccine, almost everyone contracted polio with a small number that needed to be hospitalized. From this group, 2040 percent developed post-polio syndrome.Ž One estimate for polio survivors in 2016 in the U.S. was around 315,000, which is expected to be cut in half by 2026, according to information from According to Eulberg, the best estimate of number of polio survivors living in the U.S. would be around 500,000 and it is estimated that between 40 to 50 percent of those will develop PPS.Ž In a state like Florida with so many more mature people moving to Florida as they retire, you have many people who contracted polio in other states and later moved to Florida,Ž said Eulberg. For North Fort Myers resident Carter Piche, the beginning of PPS was when he started falling more in his 50s „ decades after he got polio in Michigan at 18 months old and spent about a year in a body cast. After the PPS diagnosis „ which is a diagnosis of exclusionŽ for other issues „ he attended PPS group meetings in Collier and Charlotte counties. But now Piche said he conserves what energy he has and uses an electric chair to get around. The motto is that you conserve to preserve.Ž Most who were infected by Polio virus didnt have any symptoms. About 1 out of 200 people had weakness or paralysis in their arms, legs, or both. And Piche believes there could be many people who had it but werent ever diagnosed with polio as they didnt exhibit paralysis or werent tested for it.

But Eulberg said currently PPS diagnosis requires a clear diagnosis of past polio with paralysis. At present a person who had non-paralytic polio cannot be diagnosed with PPS,Ž said Eulberg. There is some controversy about whether a person who contracted polio, developed immunity as a result of the infection, but had no paralysis or physical evidence of permanent nerve damage could experience PPS.Ž Email: apraegitzer@sun-herald.comPOLIOFROM PAGE 1 In a photo taken in 2012 during a visit to Rome, Nokomis resident and polio survivor Judith Bacon „ who suered paralysis from the virus she contracted at the age of 3 „ was held by her friend Carl Phillipps, who accompanied her along with his wife, Vivianne, on a trip to Italy and a Mediterranean cruise. Bacon said her dad for many years carried her as Carl had done in this photo.

If the major symptom is increasing weakness then the best treatment might be some kind of external support such as a brace, cane, crutches, walker, or use of a wheelchair. In the case of increasing weakness of the breathing muscles, treatment could be respiratory support including CPAP type devices, such as BiPap. Sometimes supervised specific exercises can help with chest muscle weakness, weakness of swallowing muscles, or strengthening of relatively unaffected muscles. Pain is managed with application of heat or cold, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, topical numbing medications, acupuncture, and limited cautious use of other pain medication such as narcotics, Gabapentin or Lyrica. Post polio fatigue is best managed with pacing activities „ activity interspersed with rest periods „ and treatment of any underlying sleep disorder. „ SOURCE: Dr. Marny Eulberg, Colorado Post-Polio Organization/East Seals Colorado CLOSEST POST POLIO SYNDROME SUPPORT GROUP: TAMPA AREAWHEN: Meets third Thursday monthly at noon.

The Sun /Sunday, April 29, 2018 E/N/C Page 5 Q) WHY GET VACCINATED FOR POLIO? A) According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, vaccination can protect people fr om polio, which is a disease caused by a virus that can cause permanent disability or even death. Most people infected with polio have no symptoms, and many recover without complications. But before 1955 when the vaccine was introduced, polio paralyzed and killed thousands of people every year. Its considered to be eliminated now from the country, but still occurs in some other parts of the world. Q) DO PEOPLE STILL GET POLIO IN THE U.S.? A) No, the United States has been polio-free for more than 30 years, but the disease still occurs in other parts of the world. It would only take one person with polio traveling from another country to bring polio back to the United States. Q) HOW IS POLIO SPREAD? A) Poliovirus is very contagious. It spreads through contact with the stool of an infected person or droplets from a sneeze or cough. If you get stool or droplets from an infected person on your hands and you touch your mouth, you can get infected. Also, if your child puts objects, like toys, that have stool or droplets on them into their mouth, they can get infected. An infected person may spread the virus to others immediately before and usually 1 to 2 weeks after developing symptoms. Q) WHEN ARE CHILDREN VACCINATED? A) Doctors recommend that children get four doses of the polio vaccine (also called IPV, which is inactivated) for best protection at these ages: 2 months, 4 months, 6 through 18 months, and 4 through 6 years. Q) IS THE POLIO SHOT SAFE? A) Yes. The polio vaccine is very safe and effective at preventing polio. Q) WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS? A) Vaccines, like any medicine, can have side effects. Most children who get polio shots have no side effects. When side effects do occur, they are usually mild, like temporary redness and pain where the shot was given. Q) WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF POLIO INFECTION? A) Most people who get infected with poliovirus do not have any symptoms. Some people (25 people out of 100) will have flu-like symptoms. These symptoms usually last 2 to 5 days. In rare cases, poliovirus infection can be very serious. About 1 out of 200 people will have weakness or paralysis in their arms, legs, or both. This paralysis or weakness can last a lifetime. Q) IS POLIO SERIOUS? A) The risk of lifelong paralysis is very serious. Even children who seem to fully recover can develop new muscle pain, weakness, or paralysis as adults, 15 to 40 years later. About 2 to 10 children out of 100 who have paralysis from polio die because the virus affects the muscles that help them breathe. Q) WHAT IS POST POLIO SYNDROME? A) Post-polio syndrome (PPS) is a condition that can affect polio survivors decades after they recover from their initial poliovirus infection. It is characterized by a set of health problems, such as muscle weakness, fatigue (mental and physical), and pain from joint deterioration, that begins about 15 to 40 years after the initial poliovirus infection. PPS affects between 25 and 40 out of every 100 polio survivors. Some people with PPS have only minor symptoms, while others develop more visible muscle weakness and atrophy (a decrease in muscle size). PPS is rarely life-threatening, but the symptoms can make it difficult for an affected person to function independently. Unlike poliovirus, PPS is not contagious. Only a polio survivor can develop PPS. Q) WHAT RESEARCH IS BEING DONE ON POST POLIO SYNDROME?A) Scientists are working on a variety of investigations that may one day help individuals with Post Polio Syndrome.Q) DOES POLIO STILL EXIST? A) Polio does still exist, although polio cases have decreased by over 99 percent since 1988, from an estimated more than 350,000 cases to 22 reported cases in 2017. This reduction is the result of the global effort to eradicate the disease. Today, only three countries in the world have never stopped transmission of polio (Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria). „ SOURCE: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute of Health, World Health Organization Q & A POLIOLOCAL/REGIONAL NEWSCHARLOTTE Jane A.

Ann GordonRemembering Ann GordonOn the morning of Friday, April 29, 2016, Ann Gordon awoke full of hopes, dreams, aspirations, faith and energy. In many areas of her life she had achieved or was on her way to attaining the things that mattered most to her. Already an established entrepreneur, motivational speaker, mentor to youth and respected high school teacher, Ann continued to stretch herself wanting to gain more knowledge and credentials in her quests to empower individuals and improve her community. To this end, Ann had begun her doctoral program with ambitions of obtaining her Ph.D. within 2 to 3 years. Yes, Ann was internally driven, propelled by her passion to help others maximize their potential. On that fateful day, Ann would go on about the business of living. As she did every morning, Ann began her day praying with her precious son and ensured he was prepared for a good day at school; anyone who knew Ann will attest that she was a devoted mother who was dedicated to her child. Keeping with her routine, she arrived at North Port High School well before her scheduled time so that she could be available to students who needed extra time and attention, or simply needed a caring adult to listen and guide them through whatever issues they faced. She would always close her conversations with students with encouraging words, a warm hug, a gentle pat, a high-“ve or a ”ash of her broad beautiful smile that emanated from deep within her heart and sparkled through her eyes. Her lunch hour would be spent interacting with students and making plans for the upcoming week. As the work day ended Ann and a friend con“rmed their plans to meet later that evening. In the hours between, she and her son spent time together reading, singing, laughing and packing for his weekend as he would be visiting his father. At 7 p.m., Ann and her son arrived at the designated location; she anticipated that this would be an ordinary parent-to-parent exchange, and she would continue with her plans. But it was not so. In the spur of a moment her life on earth ended; her physical body would be no more. However, her spirit, her legacy, her commitment to improving educational outcomes for at-risk youth, and her focus on promoting autism awareness lives on. We, Anns parents, sibling, friends, colleagues, students, neighbors and business partners are inspired by her life to continue the work that she began. A foundation supporting Autism, Domestic Violence and Education has been launched in her honor. Contributions are welcome at I Loving Memoy OBITUARIESJune M. HarmonJune M. Harmon, nee Becker, passed away on April 25, 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born 62 years ago, on August 3, 1955, in Glen Cove, New York, to Helen L. and George W. Becker. June graduated from North Shore High School, Glen Head, NY, and attended Salem College in Salem, West Virginia. Throughout her life she was interested in painting, Japanese bunka, and reading. Recently, she thoroughly enjoyed being around her granddaughter. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She moved to Englewood, Florida, in 1977, then to Pt. Charlotte, Florida. She had worked in the medical “eld for 40 years. The majority of her time was spent working for Dr. Mark Konwiser. Recently, she worked for the Center for Sight. She was predeceased by her parents and grandparents George and Bertha Becker and Peter and Ruth Lynch. June is survived by her husband of 35 years Richard Harmon, her daughter and partner April Harmon and Austin Thomson, and granddaughter Brooklynn Thomson all of Pt. Charlotte; a sister and brother-in-law Linda and David Girardin of East Palatka, Florida; an aunt and uncle Ruth and William Stehling of Boynton Beach, Florida; a cousin Elizabeth Lynch of Northampton, Massachusetts; and other cousins. The family will hold a private burial at Sarasota National Cemetery on Thursday May 3rd at 11AM. A celebration of Junes life will be held at a later date. Funeral arrangements were made by Farley Funeral Homes and Crematorium, North Port. In lieu of ”owers, please make a contribution to your local Hospice or the American Cancer Society in Junes memory.Dean L. BecksteadLaurier Donald Dean Beckstead, 74, passed away peacefully at his Palm Island home in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 25, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on July 18, 1943 and raised in Emerson, Manitoba, Canada. His family was part of the Beckstead family that pioneered the Canadian movement west, and Deans ancestors were homesteaders dating back to the 1750s. He received a degree in Engineering from the University of North Dakota, and an MBA in Business Administration from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dean was employed for six years with the General Electric Company in various management positions, and subsequently for two years in the management consulting “eld with Alexander Grant and Company. For seven years prior to joining the company Dean was employed by Senco Products, Inc. in Cincinnati, Ohio where he held executive management positions in both marketing and manufacturing. In 1979 Dean and his brother, Gar“eld, purchased the property where Palm Island Resort is located and he became director and president of the resort in 1980. Prior to the development of the resort Dean contacted the University of Florida to conduct a preliminary environmental study of the island, and because of that study the 45-acre northern tip of the island adjacent to Stump Pass was dedicated as a preservation site to be maintained in its natural state. Dean took other measures to protect the islands delicate ecological balance, including the elimination of automobiles from the resort. He played a vital role in the Charlotte County Beaches and Shores Advisory Committee since its inception many years ago, and was a devout supporter of keeping local beaches as pristine as possible. Dean and Gar were honored by the Lemon Bay Conservancy in 2014 for their donation of almost 10 acres of land on Thornton Key adjacent to the 30-acre Thornton Key Preserve, making the combined land into one of the largest park and preservation areas on any barrier island in Southwest Florida. Overall Dean founded or was af“liated with more than 29 companies over a 32-year period of his life including Palm Island Water Taxi, Palm Island Marina, LLC, Island Harbor Beach Club, LLC, Bocilla Islands Conservation Foundation, Palm Island Transit, Inc., he was the president of the Charlotte Harbor Land Company and, of course, of Palm Island Resort. Dean was an avid “sherman, competing in many marlin and bill“sh tournaments. He was the co-founder and organizer of the Palm Island Resort Anglers Classic Bill“sh Tournament that was held in the 1980s, that offered a $46,000 prize fund. It was the largest bill“sh tournament purse on the west coast of Florida for its time. Dean was a member of the Charlotte County Republican Party and of the Englewood United Methodist Church. He served on the Board of Directors of the University of North Dakota Alumni Association from 2013-2017. He was also a big supporter of Lemon Bay High School baseball, and was a major contributor to the advancement of the Sky Academy and the Englewood YMCA. Dean truly thrived on perfecting the wheel. He was a measure twice, cut onceŽ man in a discombobulated world that he sometimes found hard to understand. He was an incredibly hard worker and when Hurricane Charley hit the area in 2004 Dean, his family and his employees took their barges back and forth to Palm Island and Useppa Island (which Gar owns), spending weeks pulling out brush, cleaning up destroyed homes and spending hours every day doing the work necessary to bring Useppa back to life. Dean was also a very loyal and generous man to his family, friends and employees, and is remembered fondly for the grand, quiet deeds he performed without wanting an ounce of notice for doing them. Because of Dean many families have ”ourished, many small businesses have been started and many, many lives have been in”uenced for the better. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elsie and Donald Keith Beckstead. He is survived by his wife, Jamie; his brothers, Gar (Sanae) of Sarasota and Gary (Betty) of Grand Forks, N.D.; his children, Laurie Beckstead, Adam (Heather) Beckstead, Drew (Chelsea) Culbreth, Jay (Jackie) Culbreth and Kathryn (Aaron) McFarland; grandchildren Estella Aberdean, Lucas, Emma, Jonathan, Michael, Miller, Whit and Birdie; niece Mika Beckstead, nephew Donald (Heather) Beckstead, nephew Blake Beckstead, nephew Scott Beckstead and niece Barb Beckstead. Services will be held on Tuesday, May 1 at 11 a.m. at the Englewood United Methodist Church. Arrangements were made by Lemon Bay Funeral Home and EUMC. In lieu of ”owers please consider donations to either the Englewood Family YMCA, 701 Medical Blvd., c/o Marcia Ziegler, Englewood, FL 34223; or the UND Foundation, 3501 University Ave., Stop 8157, Grand Forks, N.D. 58202.

Great concert thank youEditor: Did you know? According to statistics, there are 245 million Americans and, out of that, 23 percent (56 million) have no religious af“liation. Out of the 23 percent, 3 percent (1.7 million) are atheist, 5 percent (2.8 million) are agnostics. There are 173 million Christians. And yet, it is unlawful to have public displays of the Christ child on his birthday! We are not allowed to pray in our schools. God is not allowed in public. They say, Separation of Church and State. Then, why is In God We TrustŽ in all the documents of our founders? The Civil War is part of our history. Slavery is part of the history of the world,Ž not just our country. And, yet a small minority is being allowed to erase that part of our history. Allowed by who? By the silent majority. We are allowing the politicians to cater to the wishes of those minorities for their votes, the votes that give them great salaries, perks, and retirement. And we vote them in with the expectation that they work for us.Ž Have a good day.Jim Panaretos Port CharlotteEditor: Maybe its just me but I have a real problem with controlled burns that are held when our area is under such high “re danger conditions. While the newspaper reporting said that the closure of I-75 on April 20 was the result of fog and smoke combined, the TV reporting mentioned nothing about fog nor was fog an issue above or below the road closure. The result of this burn was that not only I-75 was gridlocked but so were alternate and feeder routes. A trip from Englewood to Tampa that is normally a 1 to 2 hour trip took 3 hours. The wasted gas, the addition exhaust fumes and the lost revenue must be staggering in a situation like this. The chances of a controlled burn getting out of control are huge during dry conditions such as existed on this day. It is also completely unnecessary. Had it been held when the winds were west to east there wouldnt be a problem. With the explosion of growth and inadequate roads, Editor: A recent letter writer thinks Charlotte County is not dog friendly because her dog has to be on a leash. I believe she is misinformed. There are Leash laws in all neighboring counties. Leash laws exist to protect dogs and their owners. Many dog owners think that their dogs are friendly until they are not. Im sure your dog probably is friendly, as is my Shitzu. While walking in my neighborhood, we were attacked by an unleashed dog whose owner probably thought that his dog was friendly.Ž Luckily we were not hurt, but I know others who were not so lucky and were badly injured. Dogs are animals and can behave unpredictably, especially when encountering other dogs. Editor: When are we going to realize that every crooked politician in of“ce today started by getting their name on the ballot in Florida or the state they represent? That is the point at which we need to be absolutely sure that they are quali“ed, sane, truthful and not criminals. If we cant do that, we cant expect to have people we can trust to be mindful of the needs of all people, not just the ones who paid for their loyalty! Im proposing one possible solution, but Im happy to listen to anyone who thinks they have a better one or can Editor: I wanted to commend the North Port Sun for publishing the well researched article, golf carts could spell trouble,Ž recently. This timely article warns the public of the dangers of their use, even on golf courses. Coinciding with this article, our neighborhood of Cypress Falls has just had our documents changed from on high without any consultation from our residents, that we must include golf carts on our windy, narrow neighborhood roads. There are no provisions to widen our roads or build any cart paths. We are not a golfing community. No one in the neighborhood would deny a genuinely disabled person use of a golf cart, but 99 percent of us can walk, bike or use a car for our transportation. Why did Centex/Pulte/Dull Webb change the documents that we bought under 11 years later without so much as a Editor: As we know, Wells-Fargo will pay $1 billion in “nes and penalties to federal regulators, i.e. the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the Of“ce of the Comptroller. In an earlier scandal $187 million to the same federal regulators and believe it or not to the Los Angeles City attorneys of“ce. These “nes and penalties are due to mortgage and auto lending abuses and the illegal opening of 3.5 million bank and credit card accounts. I wonder why all this money goes to the federal government and the Los Angeles City Attorneys of“ce? What will they do with the money ... bonuses for doing their job? Wells-Fargo should be forced to pay off the mortgages, credit cards and auto loans of the consumers that were duped. That may get the attention of WellsFargo and others that practice unscrupulous banking practices.John Brown Punta GordaEditor: I attended the North Port Chorale concert recently and had an enjoyable experience. Their theme Songs from the Silver ScreenŽ was very ambitious and done extremely well. Director Jeffery A. Herbert, the accompanists and the entire chorale did a splendid job. Thank you one and all. I look forward to the 2018-2019 season.Kathy Pearsall Port Charlotte OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITORCharlotte County schools making a strong comebackOUR POSITION: Charlotte County Schools are making signi“cant progress under the leadership of Superintendent Steve Dionisio.Like a baseball slugger who suddenly cant swat a curveball, the Charlotte County School District was mired in a deep slump. Following a couple of years of A grades from the state and challenging for a top 10 ranking among Floridas 67 school districts, Charlotte dropped to a B and a poor standing of the 48th best school district in Florida. The ranking created a stir, to say the least. Business owners bemoaned the idea that new employees, wanting the best education for their children, would not want to bring families to Charlotte County. The picture was bleak, to put it mildly. That is no longer the case. Superintendent Steve Dionisio has helped Charlotte County schools recover their swing. And theyre swinging for the fences. At a recent Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce event, Dionisio gave what amounted to a state-of-the-schools address. The facts were impressive. According to the superintendent: € Charlotte County has jumped from 48th in the state to 30th place „ in three years. € Graduation rates have risen from 77 percent in 2016 to 81 percent in 2017 „ the highest graduation rate ever in Charlotte County. € Charlotte has a higher Advanced Placement pass rate than the global average. € In the 2016-17 school year, the county beat the state average on the SAT test, 546 to 527 in reading and 517 to 491 in math. The scores that year also beat the national reading average and tied the national math average. Dionisios drive was on display when he told chamber members: I dont want to tie people, I want to beat them.Ž The superintendent, as with most heads of major companies or the president of the United States, gets the credit for turning things around. There is no doubt Dionisio has set the bar high for his staff, teachers and students and has provided strong leadership in the drive to become a top 10 school in the state. The schools are preparing to ask taxpayers to pay $1 per $1,000 value of their homes in a fall referendum. It is money that is much needed. The county lags behind in teacher pay and has other needs that the state money and current local taxes just do not pay for. Dionisio knows full well how important it is to show improvement in the classroom „ a signal that Charlotte County schools have a plan in place for excellence. In a recent Sun article, Dionisio said: Were trying to produce a product that this community can be proud of.Ž That goal „ along with the number one priority of keeping our children safe „ is certainly what administrators and teachers should have in mind every day they open the school doors. We are please d with the progress being made. Being a top 10 school in Florida, a longshot just a couple of years ago, is a real possibility. There are at least two dog parks in Charlotte County where you can unleash your dogs, Hounds on Henry in Punta Gorda, and Edgewater Park in Port Charlotte. I see leashed pets in local restaurants, stores, farmers markets, art festivals etc. Merchants in Punta Gorda and elsewhere put out water bowls for dogs. I believe that Charlotte County is very dog friendly and safe because dogs are on leashes.Jane Rigatti Port Charlottesuch things as doing whatever we can to alleviate traf“c problems should be a priority.

The Sun /Sunday, April 29, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 VIEWPOINT Trey Gowdys emotions sometimes bubble disconcertingly close to the surface, but unlike many members of the political class, he is not all surface. At a breakfast four years ago, the South Carolina Republican had tears in his eyes as he explained when he would leave Congress: after Tim Scott, a Republican congressman who had been appointed to the Senate in 2013 when Jim DeMint resigned, had been elected in his own right. This, Gowdy said at that breakfast, would close the circle of his states history. Scott, an AfricanAmerican, was born in 1965, 44 days after the Voting Rights Act was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson. The 1960 census had recorded South Carolina as 34.8 percent African-American. It was only about 27 percent African-American when Scott was elected in 2014 to complete DeMints un“nished term, and was elected to a full term in 2016. So, at the end of 2018, Gowdy, after eight years representing northern South Carolinas booming Greenville-Spartanburg area, will put Washington in his rearview mirror. The nations capital will be duller because of the departure of him and his myriad hairstyles. He will not miss it but will miss his weekly dinners with Scott, almost always at the same table in the Capitol Hill Club, a Republican hangout. A former prosecutor, Gowdy ran for Congress in part to get a respite from things that prosecutors must stare at unblinkingly. There was the 9-year-old girl with cerebral palsy who was beaten to death by her mothers boyfriend. Gowdys eyes are moist as he says that the girls picture is on his desk in his congressional of“ce. Staring down such evils is, he says, particularly arduous for someone like him, because if youve got no faith, youve got nothing to lose.Ž He, a devout Christian, thought it was time to do something else.Ž When he “rst ran for public of“ce, a friend congratulated him for being up to 20 in polls that showed him losing 80-20. When in 2010 he ran for Congress against a six-term Republican incumbent, he surfed into of“ce on that years tea party wave. And he was immediately miserable,Ž until he began his friendship with Scott. As a member of three key committees (Oversight and Government Reform, Judiciary, and Intelligence), Gowdy has been at the „ sometimes he has been the „ epicenter of controversies. These have included Benghazi (honestly, do you remember what that was about? Didnt think so), the two parties dueling memos about Russian interference in the 2016 election, and the Mueller investigation. When his fellow Republicans on the Intelligence Committee faulted the FBI, CIA and NSA for concluding with high con“denceŽ that Russia preferred Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, Gowdy said that the committees own evidence showed that Russian involvement in the election was motivated in whole or in part by a desire to harm her candidacy or undermine her presidency had she prevailed.Ž Gowdy has never met Trump and might leave Washington without having done so. Politics as he envisioned it would be a vocation in which participants asked themselves: What cause do I believe in strongly enough that I am willing to lose for it? Now, Gowdy says, the dominant question is: What am willing to do to win? At 53, he says he wants to go somewhere where facts matter.Ž So, he probably will not teach in a university. South Carolina has been punching above its weight recently. Former Gov. and now U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, daughter of immigrants from India, is disproving the plausible „ until she came along „ rule that no one could have sustained transactions with the current president without being diminished. Former South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney is director of the Of“ce of Management and Budget. James Clyburn, the most senior member of the states otherwise all-Republican House delegation, is assistant minority leader, the third-ranking position in the Democrats House leadership. It is dif“cult to say how, but it is also dif“cult to doubt that, the social soil of South Carolina has something to do with the states success in seeding national politics with talent. Gowdy and Scott have co-authored a book (Uni“ed: How Our Unlikely Friendship Gives Us Hope for a Divided CountryŽ) that is dedicated to one of Scotts grandfathers and one of Gowdys grandmothers: In the segregated age in which they lived, the two never met. But two generations later, their grandsons became the best of friends.Ž George Wills email address is georgewill@ .Gowdy aimed to close the circle of South Carolinas history George Will Courage isnt required to condemn the Syracuse University chapter of the Theta Tau fraternity for simulating a sexual assault on a disabled student. Video of this ape-ish display, now in wide circulation, should horrify anyone with an ounce of decency. That is, assuming people still recall what decency is. Alas, this onceaspirational, if now-uncommon, denominator of the American experience has been on the wane for the past several decades, so that apparently the most anyone can say about young men performing as no self-respecting baboon would in that the video was appalling and disgusting on many intersecting grounds.Ž This pronouncement came from university Chancellor Kent Syverud after the clip was released Saturday. Indeed, sir. Quite, quite. In the clip, we see a group of apparently drunk males surrounding an individual seated in a chair, who, his head bobbing, is pretending to be disabled. One of the young lads can be heard saying that the reason the supposedly disabled person is drooling is because hes retarded.Ž The video proceeds to show fraternity brothers approaching the seated fellows face in sexually aggressive maneuvers. In an earlier video released last week, one Theta Tau member is shown kneeling before another, who extends a penileshaped somethingŽ as if a lance to a knights shoulder. The kneeling member repeats as instructed that hell keep his heart filled with hatred toward blacks and Jews. (The videos poor quality makes it difficult to follow, but this is how it has been described.) The foregoing would seem ample justification for the expulsion of these students for disgusting behavior unbefitting the schools motto: Knowledge crowns those who seek her.Ž The university has begun disciplinary proceedings and referred the videos to the district attorney. Fine. In America, even knuckle-dragging quadrupeds are granted due process. Meanwhile, some consolation can be found in the universitys having already expelled Theta Tau „ described as the oldest, largest and foremostŽ fraternity for engineers „ from the campus. Let the record show that the national Theta Tau organization has condemned the actions of the Syracuse chapter, whose members insist they were merely satirizing political correctness and spoofing all things deemed off-limits. If you, dear reader, are thinking that the world has gone barking bonkers, then you might be one of The Decents, a very small social strata whose constituents quietly wander in search of like souls. Im reminded of novelist Cormac McCarthys The Road,Ž a deeply disturbing story about a postapocalyptic America in which survivors have sorted themselves into either cannibalizing criminals or, in the case of a father and young son, guardians of the last burning ember of civilization. These two are among the last of very few who remember what civilization looked like and what it takes to carry the fireŽ: vigilance, dedication, unwavering courage, discipline, loyalty and commitment. Such guardians of the light are much needed in these overcast days of indecency, cruelty and behavior bereft of empathy. Campus protesters and others have described the Syracuse videos as proof of the toxicity of fraternities, generally. It is tempting to agree, but a fraternity gone bad is a symptom of a larger cultural disruption. The causes are many „ from the high rates of broken families and fatherless homes to omnipresent pornography (and celebrity porn stars) to rampant narcissism (and the accompanying selfieobsession) „ to name a few. Permissiveness in the guise of nonjudgment has aided in the triumph of selfish expression predicted by cultural historian Christopher Lasch in his 1979 book, The Culture of Narcissism.Ž Somewhere in his imagination, he may have envisioned a future president who would act out his infantile impulses on the world stage when he wrote that the logic of individualismŽ would be carried to the extreme of a war of all against all, the pursuit of happiness to the dead end of a narcissistic preoccupation with the self.Ž Thus, Theta Taus disgusting frat theater was but a fresh episode in what should be understood as a gradual unraveling of decent society „ a dimming of the light. But what, you ask, can anyone do to shift the chancellors intersecting groundsŽ in such a rough culture? Its an old saying, but charity begins at home, meaning that children learn the values of decency „ do unto others „ from their parent-leaders within the familys miniature social system. Its a big lift to fix, but history has determined that solid families best serve the community interest. This surely is Ground Zero for our ascent. Courage, it seems, is needed now to do the hard thing at Syracuse and expel the boys „ not for expressing racism and anti-Semitism, or for lampooning the disabled, none of which brought actual harm to anyone and is probably legally protected speech. Rather, they should be expelled because someone has to carry the fire. Expel them, Mr. Chancellor, because their behavior is beneath the dignity of your institution „ and of a nation they little deserve to inherit. Courage, sir. Ill loan you a candle.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 square are waste in the lumber process. The lumber people then ship that lumber waste to a newsprint plant where it is turned into pulp, then paper. Because we use wasteŽ from the lumber process, the cost of the raw material for newsprint, is a small part of the overall costs of creating a “nished roll of newsprint. Sweeping up sawmill scraps is signi“cantly cheaper than hauling all those recycled papers from each house to a recycling plant, where they must “rst be cleaned up before they can be used. The current paper shortage is not because we dont have enough raw material to create paper. We have lots of wood chips. The problem is we are not turning enough wood chips into paper for newspapers. Heres why. Scrap lumber chips are combined with water and turned into pulp. That pulp can be turned into many different products. Packaging is the largest user of wood chips turned into pulp with about 51 percent of output. Seventeen percent is used for Kleenex or Baby Diapers. Thats right; when you blow your nose, you are blowing it into wood. You are also putting your grandchild in diapers made out of wood. About 20 percent of pulp is used to make good old-fashioned writing paper and other printing. Newsprint only accounts for about 12 percent of all pulp usage. When tariffs and duties are slapped on newsprint, mills are repurposed to use pulp for tissue, or packaging. Or the product shipped overseas. In the short term, removal of newsprint capacity for other uses, because of tariffs and duties, further increases this current shortage. Prices also rise faster. Paper that was supposed to be at our dock in January did not arrive until April. Last weekend, if we had to run four more hours on our presses, we would have run out of paper. We came that close to missing a days delivery of your paper. This newsprint shortage shall pass, we just dont know when. There are many unintended consequences when tariffs and antidumping duties are imposed. Trade wars are not simple and easy to win. I apologize to our readers and advertisers for the inconvenience this trade war is creating. We are doing everything we know, to get through this period without being tarif“ed (pardon the pun). I know we are perhaps over-communicating, but know how passionate you are about the paper and would prefer to err on the side of over communication. Share your thoughts. David is CEO of the familyand employee-owned Sun Coast Media Group which owns this newspaper. You can contact David at daviddr@ .DAVIDFROM PAGE 1 job contacts, according to FDEO. But, like the unemployment numbers, fewer and fewer people are receiving unemployment bene“ts in Charlotte and Sarasota counties recently. Charlotte Countys unemployment rate registered in March at 4 percent, down from 4.6 percent from that time last year. It was 3.4 percent in Sarasota County, down from 3.8 percent a year ago. Meanwhile, there were 139 people getting unemployment bene“ts in Charlotte County in March, and 304 in Sarasota County. That was down a combined 35 recipients from last year, according to information from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. Asked if it tracks when people on unemployment assistance dont call back prospective employers, FDEO spokesperson Tiffany Vause said: Every case is evaluated independently and the department evaluates cases based on state and federal laws.Ž Vause also said when someone applies for assistance, approvals and denials are captured in the agencys system. Florida law does not speci“cally list a requirement to call employers back. Coastal Quality Services based in North Port also gets applicants who dont return their calls or show up, according to operations manager for the company, Hector Munoz. CareerSource of Southwest Florida Spokesperson Jim Wall explained about 10 years ago CareerSource separated from the states unemployment services program. We are an employment of“ce, not an unemployment of“ce,Ž Wall said. CareerSource does not assist people with their unemployment claim or “lings, Wall said. Thats something we dont do.Ž Wall said with current unemployment rates its a job seekers market.Ž Some are using that to gain higher pay or better hours. Venice-based PGT Custom Windows + Doors Senior Vice President of Human Resources Debbie LaPinska said they too are challenged in hiring for about 130 new positions in the growing company. A lack of call-backs from applicants isnt so much a problem for hiring with PGT. Rather, LaPinska said some applicants cant pass drug or background screening in the application process. Other area companies noted that is an issue for them too. Its a tight labor market, with companies often “ghting for talentŽ during a nationwide shortage for skilled labor, she said. To compete for quality employees, LaPinska said the company has raised starting wages, offered varying shifts, childcare, job-training, a wellness clinic, tuition reimbursement and has actively recruited at job fairs. But many candidates at those fairs „ including one through CareerSource Southwest Florida last year „ failed to demonstrate job readiness. According to surveys from 63 businesses after that fair: 38 percent of them said candidates had on inappropriate attire, 27 percent said candidates lacked skills for a position, and only 11 percent reported candidates completed applications with resumes.Email: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comWORKERSFROM PAGE 1Steven A. PopsŽ PopovichSteven A. PopsŽ Popovich, 98, of Port Charlotte, Florida, passed away on Saturday, March 31, 2018, surrounded by his family.

Playing without a “rm commitment to any colleges, the right-handed senior has pitched to a 5-1 record with 40 strikeouts to three walks for a Lemon Bay team that “nished “rst in 5ADistrict 12 with a 6-0 record through regular season play. This week, Mincieli of“cially put his future in focus as he signed his letter of intent to pitch for Webber International University. Ive pitched well this season so of course I think that may have played into it a little bit, but I think its more of everything coming together at once,Ž Mincieli said. It feels great that I dont have to worry about where Im going to college, I can just go out there and pitch.Ž With Mincieli joining a team that had just come off a State semi“nals appearance in 2017 and had a new coach in Dan Flaherty, his spot on the team was up in the air. But Mincieli never wavered for the Mantas, starting off the season 4-0 with wins over North Port and a then-undefeated Island Coast team. Hes been nothing short of remarkable,Ž Lemon Bay coach Dan Flaherty said. He comes over here and hes done everything weve asked him to do and hes worked extremely hard both with us and on his own. His stats show it, hes put together a really nice year and hes really deserving of this.Ž Webber was ranked as the No. 25 school in NAIA baseball in a preseason poll and the Warriors have gone 31-21 with a 13-11 record in The Sun Conference. Mincielis commitment to Webber means he joins a growing list of Mantas committed to play at the next level including Warner Rincones (Broward), Gabriel Salgado (St. Leo) and Brandon Gielow (Tennessee). Its great, thats what we wanna do is work hard and show that our work in the classroom and the baseball “eld can get kids to the next level,Ž Flaherty said. If you can play baseball and you want to get to the next level, this program will help you do that and Justin exempli“es what it means to be a Lemon Bay baseball player. Its just been awesome to coach him and work with him this year.Ž Mincieli commits to play for WebberBy VINNIE PORTELLSPORTS WRITER SUN PHOTO BY VINNIE PORTELLJustin Mincieli is all smiles as he signs his letter of intent to play for Webber International University surrounded by his family, coach and Lemon Bay administrators.

OUR TOWN: SUNCOAST HOMES SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2018 SUMMER SPECIALS HAPPY BIRTHDAYICE CREAM SOCIAL Punta Gorda eateries are starting to offer summer specials and early-bird hours. Seepage 12. Local birthdays announced. Seepage 9. Englewood Boys & Girls Club treated to an ice cream social. Seepage 4. Question: I just got a call from my buddy who is house hunting up in Bradenton. Hes looking at a home that advertises deeded beach access.Ž Ive been wheeling and dealing in real estate for over 30 years and thought I knew it all. But Im stumped. What is it? Answer: Thats a very good question. Every buyer looking for a home with quick access to nearby beaches should absolutely know the answer to this. Lets put this into local context. Manasota Key is a beautiful island with long stretches of Gulf of Mexico beach. The most notable beach on the island is Englewood Beach. But most of the western edge of the island is lined with miles of unnamed beaches along the Gulf. The main road running up the middle of this island is North Beach Road. The west side of the road is lined with homes and other privately-owned properties that are located directly on, or facing, the Gulf beaches. The east side of the road is lined with homes that face Lemon Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway. Locals often refer to this as the bay sideŽ of the island. Now lets take a closer look at the homeowners who live across the street from the gulf beaches; those on the bay side. Its very common to think that these residents also enjoy quick access to the gulf beaches because those beaches are literally just across the street. But thats not the case. For the most part, the beach side of the road is a virtual wall of privately-owned homes and properties. These owners have the same property rights and expectation of privacy as the rest of us. You are not legally entitled to walk through their yards just because those yards stand between you and the beaches. Sure, its convenient. But its trespassing. So even though the beaches are just a few hundred yards away from your bay-side home, that really doesnt bene“t you as far as access goes. The nearest public access point, such as the Englewood Beach parking lot, could be miles away. Thats why buyers in the hunt for a home with easy beach access need to understand this concept. Imagine paying a mint for a home because you think the beach is just a 2-minute walk from your front door. Then you discover that the nearest, legal access-point is miles away. Now, heres the good news! If your bay-side home has deeded beach access, the ownership of your property grants you the legal right to use a designated portion of another persons property for gaining access to the beach. This is typically a narrow, maybe 3 feet, pathway that extends from the road to the beach along the edge of the deeded property. The entrance is often marked by a Private Property, No TrespassingŽ sign. But that sign does not apply to you. Deeded beach access conveys with the property. When the property is sold, the deeded access conveys with it to the buyer. Deeded beach access can greatly increase the value of your home for obvious reasons. It may be a dirt path, but for the value it adds to your home, it may as well be lined with gold-plated pavers. Deeded beach access is most often shared. It is likely that other homeowners are entitled to use the same access. There are many condo complexes on Manasota Key where all the owners share the same deeded access point. By the way, deeded beach access goes two ways. If you are buying property that sits between the road and the beach, you want to know if there are any deeded encumbrances on that property that allow other parties access across your land. In summary, when What is deeded beach access? PHOTO BY BRETT SLATTERYHere is an example of deeded beach access.Ž The residents of a condo complex across the street have the legal right to use the private path at the bottom of the photo as a shortcut from their doorsteps to the beach. It cuts their round trip access to the beach from mile to 100 steps.

Brett responds to all questions and column suggestions, including those not printed due to space limitations. Reach him via 941-468-1430,, or PAGE 1The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was a congressional overreaction to the “nancial crisis of 2008-9, and a process of amelioration is underway. Under the proposed Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, introduced by Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, certain provisions of Dodd-Frank would not apply to mortgage lenders whose assets total less than $10 billion „ which includes most lenders „ provided that the loans are retained by their originators rather than sold.Documentation requirements prior to Dodd-FrankIn the decade prior to the “nancial crisis, documentation requirements evolved from full doc for every borrower to a range of requirements, from full doc to no doc. The less complete the documentation, the higher the price of the mortgage and the larger the required down payment and credit score. These three poles of the underwriting system were ”exible in the sense that a good score on one could offset a poor score on another. This sensible market-based system worked well until the housing bubble emerged in the early years of this century, when large numbers of borrowers elected less than full documentation so that they could exaggerate their incomes and purchase more costly houses. Many lenders accommodated them by relaxing their standards and reducing their surveillance. When the bubble burst in 2006, mortgage defaults and foreclosures rose to levels not seen since the 1930s.The Dodd-Frank responseDodd-Frank introduced the concept of quali“ed mortgages,Ž which were mortgages that carried low-risk features and provided the lenders making them a safe harborŽ from potential liability if things went wrong. Quali“ed mortgages could not have interest-only or negative amortization features, for example, and had to be fully documented. Full documentation, furthermore, was an absolute requirement in the sense that weak documentation could not be offset by good credit or a large down payment. A major consequence of this rigid rule on documentation is that lenders who offer only quali“ed loans reject self-employed loan applicants who cannot document their income adequately. Such applicants are rejected even if their credit is pristine and they are putting 20 percent down or more.The proposal to relax the ruleUnder the proposed legislation, applicable to lenders with less than $10 billion of assets, quali“ed mortgages retain most of the required low-risk features stipulated in Dodd-Frank, but full documentation is no longer required. As I read it, these lenders will once again be able to adjust their documentation requirements to other features of the transaction. In my view, this elimination of excessive rigidity in documentation rules is as it should be, but excluding the largest lenders makes no sense. The rationale, if there is one, seems to be that relaxing the documentation rule allows “rms to take more risk, and since the failure of a very large lender is a systemic threat while the failure of a small “rm is not, the privilege should not be granted to the very largest “rms. The fallacy of that argument is that “rms viewed as systemically important are subject to special regulatory oversight by the Federal Reserve, the focus of which is their overall risk exposure. The Fed does not need Congress making risk-based rules for speci“c parts of a lenders portfolio.Limitation on mortgage salesThe other unwarranted restriction in the proposed legislation is that the lenders who take advantage of the more ”exible documentation requirements lose the safe harbor if they sell the mortgage. The premise underlying this restriction is that lenders who retain loans in their portfolios will exercise greater prudence in assessing the quali“cations of borrowers because they take the loss when borrowers default, rather than passing it along to those who buy the mortgage. It is true that virtually all the sub-prime mortgages originated during the go-go years preceding the “nancial crisis were securitized. Defaultimposed losses were borne by the security holders, and by originators who were caught with unsaleable loans when markets collapsed. But portfolio lenders who retained the mortgages they originated also suffered major losses on loans they later regretted having made. The most toxic of all the mortgages that prospered during the go-go years, the option ARM that allowed negative amortization, was a portfolio product that was retained by the “rm that originated them. The correct lesson from that recent history is that market euphoria arising from persistent increases in home prices affects permanent and temporary lenders in the same way. They read the same news and attend the same conventions. In a normal market, there is zero reason to believe that the standards imposed by those who buy mortgages from originators are any less strict than those who originate for their own portfolios. Conclusion: A regulation that makes a mortgage less valuable if it is sold is a step in the wrong direction.

The Sun /Sunday, April 29, 2018 E/N/C Page 15 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 3 Q: I read your recent tree article and want to know how I can protect myself? „ Bob Q: My neighbor has a tree near the fence, and the roots are intruding in my yard and ruining the fence. What can I do? „ Jay Q: I do not think the law is fair that I have to pay for damage caused by my neighbors trees! Where the trunk lies, so should the liability. „ Betty A: I received these questions and many more in response to my recent tree article. I decided to use this space to review the law with you and clear up any confusion. The owner of a tree is responsible for keeping it healthy and well-maintained, and for making sure it does not become a hazard to neighbors. As long as the owner does this, he or she should not be liable if the tree falls and damages a neighboring property during a storm or other unforeseen event. If the tree is genuinely on the boundary line between two lots, it becomes the property of both owners, who are jointly responsible for its maintenance and cannot remove it without the others consent. While we are on the subject of removing a tree, it is a little-known fact that most municipalities require a permit to take down a tree and will levy significant fines for not getting one. Your neighbor is not liable to you for living branches or roots intruding onto your property, but you can trim them back to the property line, at your expense. However, if doing so damages or kills the tree, you may be responsible. If the branches or roots are already dead, it is your neighbors responsibility to remove them, and if he or she does not, and your home is damaged, your neighbor could be on the hook. It is always best to try to resolve these situations in a neighborly fashion, by talking it out. If this is impossible, try looking to your homeowners association or city for assistance. Finally, make sure that you have good hazard insurance that covers tree damage, even if your mortgage is already paid off. Gary M.

Martin spoke about the importance of Amendment 2 that will be on the ballot in November. Amendment 2 would give voters the choice to make permanent a 10 percent cap on annual valuation increases for non-homestead properties. The 10 percent cap has been in place for a decade, but expires in 2019. Without an extension, Martin warned, property owners could see their property tax bill skyrocket.Ž Carrie ORourke, vice president of public policy for Florida Realtors, also spoke at the mixer that was held at Boca Royale Country & Golf Club. Amendment 2 really is good for everybody, because if the non-homestead tax cap expires in 2019, every Floridian will be negatively impacted in some way,Ž ORourke said. Three local Realtors were honored at the event for their contribution to the state association and their participation at the local and national level. Martin saluted board president Kathi Obendorfer, past president Kevin Hyde and board director David Haynes and welcomed them to the Florida Realtors Honor Society.

The Sun /Sunday, April 29, 2018 E/N/C Page 23 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 11 The end of the semester at the Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) Charlotte Campus is packed with fun stress-freeŽ activities that attempt to aid in relieving the stress of “nals. But the relief that comes from “nishing your last “nal and realizing that it is your last “nal at FSW is bittersweet. This has been my home away from home for four years. I feel accomplished that I set a goal for myself and completed it, but I also feel a sense of sadness that I am leaving this beautiful campus “lled with inspiring people. I began my journey at FSW in 2014, almost 10 years since I graduated high school. This labeled me as a nontraditional student. My husband and I started this journey together, and we will complete it together walking across the stage. There were many hardships, and we did struggle, but we made it through with an amazing support system. My parents and in-laws helped us both “nancially and with our daughter „ the reason we started this in the “rst place. She is now seven years old, but I can remember her as a three-year-old the day we had to bring her along to our ethics class. The room was quiet as Professor Robbins wrote notes on the board, and Lisandra, wearing her headphones, was just sitting and watching her cartoons. Then, as loud as can be, she yelled, I love you, mommy!Ž Rather than being annoyed at the interruption, Professor Robbins responded, That has to be the cutest thing to ever happen in my class.Ž From that day forward, I knew FSW was the place where I belonged. The kind-hearted staff and faculty make this campus unique. After one semester at FSW, I joined the Student Government Association (SGA) due to the persistence of a stranger, and now a great friend, John. He saw something in me that I did not yet see in myself. I started as a senator, moved up to president, and even joined Florida College Systems Student Government Association, which represents all 28 Florida state and community colleges. In addition to SGA, I became a student assistant at the Student Services Information Desk and the Student Engagement Of“ce, president of our Campus Activities Board, Phi Theta Kappa vice president, and joined a variety of other clubs. All these roles helped me meet some amazing people that have become family to me. I became the campus mom and spent my time helping my peers through their school and personal troubles. This helped me con“rm that becoming a psychology major was the right choice. Walt Disney said, All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.Ž Never think your dreams are unattainable; make an effort and you will be pleasantly surprised. No matter what my future holds or where my journey takes me, I have become a better and stronger person through my experiences at FSW. Linda Fuentes is a graduating student at the FSW Charlotte Campus.A bittersweet step: Saying farewell to FSW Linda Fuentes Sidewalks to closeBeginning, Monday, April 30, the sidewalks located at Harborwalk (at the easterly end of Laishley Park) will be closed due to seawall replacement.

Page 24 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 12 Depending on how you look at it, Easter, April Fools Day or Tax Day marked the beginning of the end of another seasonal bonanza. Even in the wind-torn aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Gov. Rick Scott was able to proclaim a record year for Florida tourism „ estimating 116.5 million visitors in 2017, up 4 million from the previous years high of 112.4 million. With snowbird migration in full ”ight, locals are slowly emerging from self-imposed hibernation, to enjoy the tourist lifestyle for which they live here. And Punta Gorda eateries are already starting to welcome them back with summer specials and early-bird hours that suit their schedules. Take in a sunset from the Wyvern ƒ In honor of its stunning rooftop sunset vistas, Punta Gordas Wyvern Hotel is offering Sunset Selection specials this summer, at both Perch 360 and 88 Keys Florida. Diners have their choice among three starters, “ve entres and three desserts, with each course including a vegan or gluten-free option. Chef Josh Booze has pulled out all the creative stops to plate starters like pork pot stickers with chili soy reduction and carrot ginger puree, and entres including pan-seared salmon with brown sugar glaze, on cheddar grits with baconbraised kale. (That last bit makes the whole business healthy.) The $25 three-course menu, launched April 9, is served Monday to Thursday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The Wyvern Hotel ($$-$$$), 941-639-7700, is at 101 E. Retta Esplanade. Perch 360 is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. 88 Keys is open Sunday to Thursday 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday to 10 p.m. Or a matinee at F.M. Dons ƒ Starting April 3, F.M. Dons began serving even earlier birds a menu of six compact entres for $15 and under. Every day, between 4 and 5:30 p.m., you can choose from crispy cod and chips, seared Faroe Island salmon, beef Bolognese with penne, mojo braised pork shoulder, houseground tenderloin burger and pan-roasted airline chicken breast. Given that you cant expect any kind of food on an airline anymore, youre probably wondering what airline chicken is. According to the National Chicken Council, The term airline chicken breast “rst became popular in the 1960s when major commercial airlines included full-service meals on air ”ights that were of suf“cient length/time to serve such meals. Airlines required a relatively small breast portion for a number of reasons and kept part of the wing on to give a presentation that made the serving portion appear to be bigger than it actually was and also to give it a certain differentiation from the non-airline breast. It was and still is a relatively costly product.Ž Of course Chef Keith Meyer never stoops to the sleight of hand involved in making something look bigger than it really is, but he will switch and swap matine entres throughout the summer. And on Mondays, all day long, look for Mussels and Martinis, a regular dinner portion of plump Prince Edward Island mussels in garlic, white wine and fresh herb butter for $5, with $5 Stoli martinis. F.M. Dons ($$-$$$), 941-637-8800, is at 201 W. Marion Ave., on the corner of Marion and Taylor. Its open Sunday to Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Thursday to Saturday until 10 p.m. Sunday Brunch is 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come back for your Gift at Italia and River City Owner Doug Amaral reports that his famous The GiftŽ„ a BOGO menu of special twofor-one entres „ will return to River City Grill and Italia at River City in May, giving both staff and locals the present of continued business throughout the offseason.

Statistics cited by agency may well be extrapolated to Port Charlotte, Englewood, North Port and Arcadia. While research indicates that 90 percent of high school-age teens and 91 percent of middle school-age kids in Punta Gorda do not abuse prescription drugs, those percentages drop when it comes to those not using alcohol: 75 percent among high school-age teens and 86 percent of middle school-age children. Perhaps more disturbing is the fact that among Punta Gorda youth who do use alcohol, the average age of onset is 11 years old. Drug Free Punta Gorda is a youth substance-abuse prevention coalition whose mission is to provide awareness, knowledge and skills to establish and advance healthy, drug-free choices in the community. The agency is holding a public meeting from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, at the agency of“ce in the back building at East Elementary School, 27050 S Fairway Drive, Punta Gorda. Lunch will be served at the event, and Drug Free Punta Gorda is requesting $10 donation.

Al Breininger. They came. Eventually. Reluctantly. And although the popular residents of Charlotte Harbor made only a cursory appearance, they thrilled the passengers on Breiningers 34-foot pilot house trawler. The two-hour cruise on the harbor came courtesy of the fourth annual WAVE, Wounded American Veterans Event, which gathered 20 disabled veterans and their guests for boat rides, lunch, a pinning ceremony and some simple thanks for serving the country. Breininger was one of 13 captains who untied from the Platinum Point Yacht Club in Burnt Store Marina on a picture-perfect April day to give the veterans some time on the water. The host club, along with the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club, the Isles Yacht Club, the Punta Gorda Boat Club and the Platinum Point Yacht Club Fishing Club took part in the event, which rotates the host club each year. The veterans were all local men who had incurred a 30 percent or more disability while serving in the military. Many were Vietnam veterans, and they were recognized in a pinning ceremony after the craft „ which included motor boats and sailboats „ got off the water. Taking them out on the water and letting them enjoy some time is just a little way to say thank you,Ž said Carole Lick, past commodore of Platinum Point and the event chairwoman. It was Platinum Points “rst year to host. Vietnam Army veteran Ed Smith, and his wife, Sue came from Englewood to ride on the Reel Blessing with Capt. Mitch Wegrzyn. This program,Ž Sue said, is phenomenal.Ž Breiningers vessel included his wife of 52 years, Barbara, Army veteran Paul Campbell, Donna Iraneta, the wife of Marine Corps veteran Marshall Iraneta, and Nancy Ortiz, program specialist for Veterans Village, which Clubs thank veterans with boat ridesBy RUSTY PRAYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENT BOAT | 2 FEELING FIT PHOTO BY RUSTY PRAYCapt. Al Breininger gets the Explorer underway.You walk into the grocery store with the best intentions, “ling your cart with kale, broccolini, tofu and Greek yogurt. Then you get home, feel pressed for time and order a pizza. Before you know it, the perishables are going bad at the back of the fridge. Theyll wind up in the trash, like so many other well-intentioned meals that never came to be. Your efforts to eat better have ”opped again. But thats not your only fail. Youve also squandered the natural resources used to produce that food and contributed to environmental degradation for nothing. If youre ready to accept the full guilt of the situation, youre in luck: Researchers have added it all up for you. According to a new report in the journal PLOS One, we Americans wasted just over 25 percent of our food between 2007 and 2014. Although we did a decent job of “nishing up our nuts and seeds (only 12 percent wasted) and potatoes (about 16 percent wasted), we were not as careful with seafood (nearly 35 percent wasted), whole fruit (almost 33 percent wasted) and soups (30 percent wasted). Incredibly, Americans even wasted 23 percent of our bacon, 26 percent of our grain-based desserts (think cookies, cakes and brownies), and 29 percent of our salty snacks. Each year, just short of 4.2 trillion gallons of water were used to produce all this uneaten food. That includes nearly 1.3 trillion gallons of water to grow uneaten fruits and 1 trillion gallons of water to grow uneaten vegetables.

You see the labels out there „ organic, cage-free, natural „ but what does it all mean? If youre trying to make better shopping choices for the environment by choosing greenerŽ or ethically made products, youre going to be bombarded by dozens of labels purporting to measure up to a certain standard, and probably charging more money for the goods. But dont be fooled. Be an informed consumer by taking a few minutes to familiarize yourself with a few common terms and certi“cations, so you can avoid being greenwashed.Ž Look for the USDA Organic label. The U.S. Department of Agriculture certi“es what food and “ber products meet federal regulations to be called organic and can carry the circular USDA OrganicŽ label. This certi“cation means they were grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal-raising practices and use of additives. Farmers cant apply synthetic pesticides or herbicides or use genetically modi“ed seeds. No other ecoŽ label out there has federal regulations behind it, said Connie Karr, certi“cation director at Oregon Tilth, a USDAaccredited certi“cation organization that inspects farms to ensure regulatory compliance. If you see terms like natural, cage-free or pasture-raised on a product without the USDA organic label, there are no strict guidelines. Those are claims that a company can make, but theres no federal regulation to them. (They) could mean a hundred different things to a hundred different people,Ž Karr said. Only 100 percent certi“ed organic products get to display the USDA seal. If a packaged product says it is made with organic ingredients, that means at least 70 percent of those ingredients are organically produced and the rest are made without prohibited practices. These wont have the USDA seal, but they must identify the USDAaccredited certi“er.How to be smarter about buying organicBy DEBBIE CARLSONCHICAGO TRIBUNE PHOTO PROVIDEDOrganic certication is an expensive and long process for farmers, and those costs are passed on to consumers.

Campbell, 51, who suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder, was among “ve Veterans Village residents who were entertained by the clubs. The Explorer also featured a live-aboard cat, Suki, a 23-year-old ragdoll. I think its great what theyre doing, giving back to the community and recognizing the veterans,Ž Campbell said before boarding the Explorer. The Explorer cast off with no particular place to go and plenty of time to get there. Iraneta, of Nokomis, was on board alone because her husband, Marshall, had opted for a “shing boat. Ortiz was eager to see dolphins. Campbell, who said he has his own boat, was just happy to be on the water. The Breiningers spend four months living on the Explorer at Burnt Store Marina and the rest of the year at their place in South Carolina. Al Breininger himself is a Navy veteran. I just want to give back,Ž he said. He took the Explorer, which he has had for 13 years, into the glasssmooth harbor. As the boat wandered the water, he tracked down other vessels involved in the WAVE program to greet them. His three guests took up residence on the top deck for the best view. After a while, the voyage evolved into a dolphin search. They werent cooperating. Im going to get it up to 8 knots because thats the speed they seem to like when they swim in the wake,Ž he said. The strategy did not pay immediate dividends. Finally, Barbara called out, Theres one off the port bow.Ž Al called up to his passengers. Other dolphins were sighted some ways off. And then, there he was, a swimmer in the wake, getting his photos taken by an excited Ortiz. As the boat returned to the marina, two more dolphins appeared in shallow water and looked up at the passengers. This is my serenity, said Campbell. This is my peace.ŽBOATFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDEDThe Explorer hails a sailboat carrying veterans as part of the WAVE program. Lewis Goldstein, vice president of brand at Organic Valley, a farmer-owned cooperative, said theres been some confusion about organicŽ and nonGMOŽ labels. Organic is always non-GMO, he said. Products raised conventionally can say they have non-GMO ingredients, but there are no federal certifications or inspections required for non-GMO goods. Organic certification is an expensive and long process for farmers, and those costs are passed on to consumers, which is why organic commands a premium price. Its also why many third-party labels popped up in recent years „ trying to get on the trend while bypassing federal regulations. When looking at these third-party labels that dont include USDA certification, consumers should research what the certifications mean, said Ioannis Kareklas, assistant professor of marketing at the University at Albany, who co-edited the 2017 book Deciphering Organic FoodsŽ and works with farmers. As we get more labels, you have to follow the trail and figure out whos providing the certifications, what are their motivations and their financial incentive. In some cases, they might be just as trustworthy, and in other cases, they might not be,Ž he said. Whats in your egg. Labels like cage-free are targeted at meat, dairy and eggs. Those terms may conjure up images of small Norman Rockwell-esque farms, but again, Goldstein and Karr say that only organic products have specific guidelines about animal welfare and access to outside. Nonorganic cage-free only means the hens arent confined in cages, but they could live in a crowded room with tens of thousands of birds. Nonorganic pasture-raised means birds have access to the outside, but they may not go, and that pastureŽ could be a screened-in porch with a concrete floor. Karr and Goldstein said the organic industry pushed for more definitive animal welfare standards that might have cleared up confusion on terms like pasture-raised, which even under the current organic rules arent well-defined. However, regulations passed under the Obama administration to go into effect this quarter will not be implemented by the Trump administration, they said. For people who want to start buying some organic foods, Karr and Goldstein recommended the Environmental Working Groups Shoppers Guide to Pesticides in Produce and its Dirty Dozen list, which points out which produce is best to buy organically, due to high levels of synthetic pesticides in conventional food. Strawberries, spinach and nectarines top the list. Textiles too. Organic certification also covers natural fibers like cotton and wool, but definitions can get blurry once fibers become textiles, said Marci Zaroff, founder and chief executive officer of MetaWear, an organic textiles manufacturer who is on the board of directors of the Organic Trade Association. The USDA organic seal governs fiber used in products like cotton swabs. For textiles like apparel, bedsheets and mattresses, look for the Global Organic Textile Standard seal, a private industry standard that the USDA adopted as a complement to the organic label, she said. GOTS is a standard that has been adopted all over the world as the platinum standard for a certified finished organic textile,Ž Zaroff said. To carry the GOTS seal, the item must be certified organic from the agricultural fiber to the finished product „ through the entire supply chain. That includes avoiding toxic pesticides and processing chemicals and ensures fair working conditions. Theres no cleaner, greener textile products than a GOTS-certified product,Ž she said.ORGANICFROM PAGE 1 FEELING FIT 2 Several herbal remedies have been studied as a treatment for anxiety, but more research is needed to understand the risks and benefits. Heres what we know „ and dont know: € Kava. Kava appeared to be a promising treatment for anxiety, but reports of serious liver damage „ even with shortterm use „ caused the Food and Drug Administration to issue warnings about the use of dietary supplements containing kava. While these initial reports of liver toxicity have been questioned, use extra caution and involve your doctor in the decision if youre considering using products containing kava. € Passion flower. A few small clinical trials suggest that passion flower might help with anxiety. In many commercial products, passion flower is combined with other herbs, making it difficult to distinguish the unique qualities of each herb. Passion flower is generally considered safe when taken as directed, but some studies found it can cause drowsiness, dizziness and confusion. € Valerian. In some studies, people who used valerian reported less anxiety and stress. In other studies, people reported no benefit. Valerian is generally considered safe at recommended doses, but since long-term safety trials are lacking, dont take it for more than a few weeks at a time, unless your doctor approves. It can cause some side effects such as headaches, dizziness and drowsiness. € Chamomile. Limited data shows that short-term use of chamomile is generally considered safe and can be effective in reducing symptoms of anxiety. But chamomile can increase the risk of bleeding when used with blood-thinning drugs. Use of chamomile can cause allergic reactions in some people who are sensitive to the family of plants that includes chamomile. Other members of this family are ragweed, marigolds, daisies and chrysanthemums. € Lavender. Some evidence suggests that oral lavender or aromatherapy with lavender can reduce anxiety; however, evidence is preliminary and limited. Oral lavender can cause constipation and headaches. It can also increase appetite, increase the sedative effect of other medications and supplements, and cause low blood pressure. € Lemon balm. Preliminary research shows lemon balm can reduce some symptoms of anxiety, such as nervousness and excitability. Lemon balm is generally well-tolerated and considered safe for short-term use, but can cause nausea and abdominal pain. Herbal supplements arent monitored by the FDA the same way medications are. Despite enhanced quality control regulations in place since 2010, the quality of some supplements may still be an issue. Remember, natural doesnt always mean safe. If youre considering taking any herbal supplement as a treatment for anxiety, talk to your doctor first, especially if you take other medications. The interaction of some herbal supplements and certain medications can cause serious side effects. Some herbal supplements taken for anxiety can cause you to feel sleepy, so they may not be safe to take when driving or doing dangerous tasks. Your doctor can help you understand possible risks and benefits if you choose to try an herbal supplement. If your anxiety is interfering with daily activities, talk with your doctor. Moreserious forms of anxiety generally need medical treatment or psychological counseling (psychotherapy) for s ymptoms to improve.Herbal treatment for anxietyFROM MAYO CLINIC NEWS NETWORK PHOTO PROVIDEDHerbal remedies have been studied as a treatment for anxiety, though more research is needed.

She cited the Journal of Adolescent Health in noting that drinking lowers inhibitions and increases the chances that youth will engage in risky behaviors or do something that they will regret when they are sober. Young people who use alcohol are more likely to be sexually active at earlier ages, to have sexual intercourse more often, and to have unprotected sex,Ž the journal states. Studies conducted among teens have identi“ed an association between substance abuse and sexual risk behaviors such as having sex, having multiple sex partners, not using a condom, and pregnancy before the age of 15.Ž Salazar said. Researchers have found that as the frequency of substance use increases, the likelihood of sex and the number of sex partners also increases, Salazar noted. In addition, studies show that sexual risk behaviors increase in teens who use alcohol and are highest among students who use marijuana, cocaine, prescription drugs (such as sedatives, opioids, and stimulants), and other illicit drugs. Drug and alcohol abuse may encourage behaviors that put teens at risk for HIV, STDs and unwanted pregnancy. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services assembled decades of scienti“c understanding to determine that the dangers of underage drinking have increased substantially. Underage drinking is associated with various negative consequences for youth and can affect and endanger their lives and the lives of those around them,Ž the department concluded. It has been shown that teens who drink alcohol are more likely to use drugs,Ž Salazar said. Frequent binge drinkers (nearly one million high school students nationwide) are more likely to engage in risky behaviors, including using other drugs such as marijuana and cocaine.Ž Other consequences of alcohol and drug abuse among teens, Salazar noted, include bad grades, poor school performance and dropping out of school. Such teens may be involved in violent crimes and property crimes, which can lead to injury or death. Young people who drink are more likely to have health issues such as depression and anxiety disorders, thoughts of suicide, and even suicide attempts,Ž she said. Drug Free Punta Gorda, along with Drug Free Charlotte County and other sisterŽ coalitions, is engaging in efforts to develop strategies to combat substance use and sexual risk behaviors among teens, including: Ongoing drug prevention programs at middle and high school level that promote social and emotional competence. Development of teen alcohol and drug resistance skills. Parent engagement and awareness. Parents and caring adults, active in the lives of teens, prove to be the best drug prevention strategy available,Ž said Salazar. Dif“culties experienced by young people who persistently abuse substances may include driving-related issues, academic setbacks, health-related problems (including mental health), poor peer and family relationships, involvement with the juvenile justice system, and isolation, depression and suicidal thoughts and attempts, notes the Drug Free Punta Gorda website. There are also consequences for family members, the community, and the entire society. Drinking impairs ones perceptual and motor skills, and this impairment clearly increases the risk of a car crash if one drives after drinking, a risk that is much higher for young drivers,Ž Drug Free Punta Gorda says. In addition, evidence supports a clear correlation between early drinking and problematic adult drinking and other longterm problems. The earlier young people start drinking, the more likely they are to have problems in their adult lives,Ž the agency says.

Register at BAYFRONT NEWS & NOTESAccording to the American Gastroenterological Association, more than 60 million Americans are estimated to experience heartburn at least once a month and a staggering 15 million suffer daily. Heartburn is the most common symptom of GERD, or gastroesophageal re”ux disease. For some, the occasional heartburn can be managed, but when your symptoms are frequent and bad enough to impact your sense of well-being, you may need to try something else. Since the age of 40, I tried every over-thecounter and prescription medication out there,Ž says Punta Gorda resident Virginia, who goes by Ginger. They worked, but didnt handle the problem. I wanted something to take care of it. I wanted a long-term eraser.Ž Every person may not feel GERD in the same way. For Ginger, she experienced pain daily behind the chest that would move up toward her neck, pain that became worse when she bent over or was lying down. As a result, she regularly had a sore throat and pain when swallowing. If I forgot to take my meds in the morning, by noon I couldnt eat or drink anything. The heartburn would become just that bad.Ž When Ginger went to meet with general surgeon Maria Castilla, M.D., for her annual colonoscopy, Ginger mentioned the severity of her GERD symptoms and how it was affecting her life. Dr. Castilla opted to run a few tests before discussing next steps. I “rst wanted to refer Ginger to a gastroenterologist to rule out the possibility of any other health issues,Ž said Castilla. There are certain symptoms that mimic GERD symptoms, but may point to complications or life-threatening problems. With Ginger, testing revealed that her esophageal sphincter, a band of muscles at the bottom of her esophagus, wasnt working properly. When you swallow, the sphincter relaxes so food can pass through to the stomach. When not in use, the sphincter contracts to keep food and acid from ”owing back up. Gingers wasnt contracting so anything she ate and drank would ultimately ”ow back up causing severe heartburn and related symptoms.Ž Since Gingers GERD symptoms were so severe and could not be eased with medicine or lifestyle change, Dr. Castilla recommended a nissen fundoplication using robotic-assisted techniques. The surgery was performed at Bayfront Health Port Charlotte in November of 2017. During this procedure, Dr. Castilla wrapped the upper curve of Gingers stomach, referred to as the fundus, around her esophagus and stitched it into place. This would ultimately aide in strengthening the valve between her esophagus and stomach to prevent acid and food from rising into her esophagus as easily. Today, Ginger says her body is still adapting to the change. My gastro system works differently now. I think I honestly had GERD symptoms all my life. Now my body is adjusting. There are still certain foods I cannot eat, like bread in large quantities. But thats a good thing! It has taught me how not to overeat. Overall, its been positive. I only wish I had the procedure done sooner. I recommend to anyone that wants to maintain their life without taking medications the rest of their life.Ž If your GERD symptoms are severe and interfering with your lifestyle, your physician may suggest surgery. Speak to your doctor to see if nissen surgery may be right for you.

Psychologist Randy Cisne was speaking to the networking group Senior Outreach Sources when something she said opened a door and in walked a question. And then another, and another. Pretty soon, the Punta Gorda therapist was at the center of an informative and highly entertaining discussion. But thats kind of what Senior Outreach Sources does „ open doors. Its a group of professionals in the “eld of senior health care who use networking to connect with those coming into the “eld in this area and with individual seniors. We want to become a referral source to both seniors and people in our “eld,Ž said Amie Conti, marketing director of A Better Solution in Punta Gorda. Maybe theres a senior in the community who needs information on transportation. We will be able to say that we have a member of this group to whom we can refer you „ and theres no charge to these people.Ž The group meets from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club, 4400 Lister St. in Port Charlotte. There are no dues. Its primary purpose is to bring newcomers into the network of professionals, but it also can serve as a referral service to seniors who have a need and dont know how to fill it. Basically, its a group of companies that service various needs in the senior community „ from home health care to skilled nursing to adult day care to assisted living to hospice,Ž said Kris Chana, owner of Chelsea Place, an adult day care in Port Charlotte. These are all different services that seniors, at some point, might have a need for. Every day, we come across people asking for help. They dont have a place to start. This group allows us to develop relationships so we can give them a place to start. If they have a need for mom or dad or a spouse and they dont know where to turn, any one of us in this group would be a good starting point.Ž The group was formed about three years ago by Conti Chana; Cassy Monnier, community liaison for Port Charlotte Rehabilitation; and Deborah Burton of Tidewell Hospice. Its a small-knit group,Ž Monnier said. We spend a lot of time networking so that you can meet people and build referral networks. We focus on the new people. We give them the opportunity to meet all us.Ž Melissa Guido is one of the newcomers. She and her husband, Joe, started a special-needs transportation company, AllyRides, in November. It was her third SOS luncheon. Im here to network,Ž she said. Its actually worked really well. This is a great group of people.Ž Chana nodded. That was exactly the point. Its a service we kind of had a need for,Ž he said of AllyRides. She was able to come here and build relationships with us so that we can use her as a resource.Ž The group is looking to expand its reach.

Page 30 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 Inversion therapy is a relatively young term that is used to represent a much older concept. Inversion exercises such as the headstand, and the inversion concept itself, have always been an integral part of the system of yoga; a system that is quite ancient. One of his companions was Onesicritus who claimed that the Indian yogins practiced aloofness and different postures „ standing or sitting or lying naked and motionlessŽ. (Extracted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). The spread of yoga from India to America began as far back as 1893 and continues today. A vast number of yoga schools and training centers have been established. A practice that existed for years (especially during the 1940s to 1960), but was not very public or widespread, was the use of yogis to provide private yoga counseling and training to the rich and famous. Many famous actors, actresses and others depended on these teachers to help them manage their daily stress and to stay healthy and young looking. In addition to the meditation, proper breathing and healthy eating that were important components of the training offered to these celebrities, they also received training in the use of the asanas (postures or positions) basic to the system of yoga. A posture that was always emphasized during these types of training is the headstand (Sirshasana). It was commonly believed (back then) that the headstand possessed the ability to enhance ones beauty and to keep one looking much younger than his/ her real age. The headstand and its many variations (including the vast number of inversion machines available to the public) offer a number of bene“ts. A rationale for many of these bene“ts is simply this: blood ”ow to the uppermost region of the body is hampered by gravity and also by ones level of activity. If you stand motionless for a few hours, the possibility exists that you will faint. This will, most likely, be caused by a decrease in the amount of blood reaching your brain. For those familiar with basic “rst aid, the procedure used to revive a person who has fainted is to simply raise his/ her legs. The assumption here is that such an action will help to revive the individual by increasing blood ”ow to the brain. The goal of inversion training is to secure therapeutic bene“ts through the use of machines and physical positions that causes the body to be in an inverted or semi-inverted position. When the body is placed in such a position, the ”ow of blood to its uppermost region is made easier. Blood that is oxygen and nutrient rich will now reach the brain, eyes, hair and other parts more easily. It is no coincidence that the most obvious signs of aging are displayed above the shoulders: greying hair, teeth loss, poor vision, hearing problems, etc. These are areas that are subjected to decreased blood ”ow due to the descending pull of gravity and low levels of physical activity. Inversion training is a proven way to help ensure good health and avoid premature aging. It also offers additional bene“ts. Listed below are some of them: € relieves stress € helps with depression € stimulates healthy hair € helps to strengthen the upper body € strengthens the core muscles € removes toxins from the body by stimulating the lymphatic system € improves digestion € helps improve breathing Although inversion training uses a number of naturalŽ body positions, a number of machines are also made use of. Although these machines will help to increase blood ”ow to those neglected areas mentioned above, they are mainly used to facilitate decompression of the spine. This form of therapy is used to relieve pressure that is being placed on the spine. Securing the bene“ts of inversion training is no easy matter. The natural positions and machines that are used, can be quite dif“cult (even dangerous). In addition, not everyone can make use of this type of training. A person suffering from a weak or injured neck, high blood pressure, certain eye diseases, heart disease or who are pregnant should get permission from their doctor before attempting inversion training.

They also applied nearly 780 million pounds of pesticide to protect food that never passed our lips. Not interested in taking responsibility for the entire country? The study authors also broke things down on a per-capita basis. On an average day, an average American wasted a little less than a pound of food (422 grams, to be exact). That represented a dietary loss of more than 800 calories per person per day. Fruits and vegetables accounted for 39 percent of that waste (measured by weight), and dairy items contributed an additional 17 percent. At the other end of the spectrum, egg dishes made up less than 1 percent of the waste, as did the combined category of table oils and salad dressings. The research team, led by Zach Conrad of the U.S. Department of Agricultures Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center in North Dakota, put all this together by linking information in a variety of government databases. For instance, they gleaned information about Americans diets from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which is conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To “nd the ingredients in those diets, they used the Environmental Protection Agencys Food Commodity Intake Database. Surveys conducted by the USDA provided information about agricultural resources such as water and pesticides, and the departments Economic Research Service provided data to calculate food waste. The results revealed substantial variance in the quality of Americans diets. On a scale of 0 to 100, those in the bottom 20 percent scored an average of 32, while those in the top 20 percent scored an average of 82. (Nationwide, the average was 58.) One trend was unmistakable: The higher the diet quality, the more food was wasted. Americans in the bottom 20 percent wasted an average of 295 grams of food per day, while those in the top 20 percent wasted an average of 535 grams of food per day. The more healthful your diet, the more water and pesticides you wasted as well, the researchers reported. Past studies have focused on the environmental bene“ts of producing (and ultimately consuming) fewer animal-based foods and shifting instead to foods that come from plants. But the new “ndings show that its not that simple. Improving diet quality and reducing environmental impact are efforts that should be pursued concurrently,Ž Conrad and his colleagues wrote. Consumers should increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables and simultaneously waste less of them.Ž The study authors acknowledged that this was easier said than done. One way to reduce food waste is to buy fewer perishable goods and choose canned or packaged foods that have a longer shelf life. But these items often contain more sodium, saturated fat and added sugar. Still, the situation is not hopeless. Americans would waste less food if they knew more about how to tell when fruits and vegetables are ripe, how to store and prepare them, and how to tell the difference between bruises/abrasions and spoilage,Ž the researchers wrote. Bringing some clarity to the sell byŽ, use byŽ and best beforeŽ dates that are printed on packages could also stop consumers from tossing perfectly good items into the garbage, they added. In the longer term, engineers are developing sensors that can alert people when food has actually spoiled, reducing the risk that they will wind up sick. It is important to ensure that efforts to reduce food waste at the consumer level do not undermine legitimate food safety concerns,Ž the study authors wrote. Spoiled food is a health risk.ŽWATERFROM PAGE 1 FEELING FIT 6Alzheimers Caregiver Support GroupThe Alzheimers Caregiver Support Group meets from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. the second Tuesday every month at The Springs at South Biscayne, 6235 Hoffman St., North Port.

From the moment you enter the room for a job interview, the hiring manager is assessing one thing: Are you the best person for the job? And at some point during the interview, you can expect to be asked straight up, Why should we hire you?Ž Obviously, you cant respond, Because I need a job.Ž Granted, its a loaded question, says Los Angeles executive coach Libby Gill, but you need to ace it.Ž Basically, your answer needs to demonstrate that you are the solution to the employers problem (a vacancy on their team), and no other candidate could possibly do the job better than you. So why should they choose you over anybody else? Take these steps to prepare a well-crafted response.Focus on the employers needs (not yours)Though the question seems like the focus is on you and your wants, its really not. Your personal career goals are certainly important, but this question is an opportunity to explain how youll bring value to the company. To prepare, research everything you can about the business agenda„ read its website, social media, quarterly reports, company pro“les on Monster, press releases, and recent news stories about the company. What are their goals? Where do they see themselves headed in the future? How can your talents help get them there? (This company wants to be an industry leader in xyz. My background has given me valuable experience in that realm, and I have a lot of ideas as to how we can make that happen together.Ž)Reflect on the jobYou can also learn a lot from a job posting, says Priscilla Claman, president of Career Stratgies Incorporated. Most job descriptions outline not only the job responsibilities and quali“cations, but also what core skills are required to be successful in the position. Tim Cole, owner at career coaching “rm The Compass Alliance, says the best strategy is to target three to four skills and explain how youve demonstrated them in the past. (I know that business acumen is one of the crucial skills for this position. Let me give you a few examples of how Ive applied this skill in my career thus far.Ž) Where possible, weave in language from the job posting, says Gill. You can use some of the companys buzzwords without sounding overly rehearsed,Ž she advises. Address cultural “t About eight in 10 employers said they measure for cultural “t when hiring job candidates, one survey by international development “rm Cubiks found. Read: Part of your answer should indicate why youll be a good match for the companys environment. (This isnt a traditional company, which is wonderful because I dont consider myself a traditional worker. Like you, I thrive on innovation.Ž)Avoid clichsUsing trite words or phrases to articulate your value is one of the biggest mistakes job candidates make, says Claman. Indeed, youre not going blow hiring managers away with your originality by using lines theyve heard over and over again. Dont just sit there and say, Hire me because Im a hard worker, or Im self-motivated,Ž Claman says. Rather than telling an interviewer youre a self-starter, back it up with an anecdote that shows how youve collaborated well with co-workers in the past. (Im a team player. I know youve probably heard that before, so let me give you an example.Ž)Dont hold backTo impress a hiring manager, you have to show con“dence, says Julie Jansen, career coach and author of You Want Me to Work With Who? Employers like to see that you know what your strengths are and that you know you bring value,Ž Jansen says. Look at past performance reviews to see what managers praised you for and talk to former co-workers about your contributions „ then highlight those skills or achievements. And, lead with a power statement: If you want someone who can walk in and start managing a project without a lot of direction, or someone who already has a black belt in this sector, then Im the person you should hire.Ž Feeling fearless?

Page 32 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 Many a nights sleep has been lost worrying about an upcoming job interview. Questions like Will I make a good impression?Ž or Am I quali“ed for the job?Ž can make for a restless nights sleep on the eve before a job interview. Writing a resume is another aspect of the job hunt that can stoke your nerves. Men and women may pour over job timelines and skill summaries for hours in an effort to ensure they have included the right mix of information to get noticed. Though resume writing has changed considerably over the years, some conventional wisdom about resumes still prevails, and how closely potential applicants adhere to these rules goes a long way toward determining if they earn a chance at an interview. € Me, myself and I: While the resume should showcase your professional accomplishments, it also should showcase how your skills relate to the job youre applying for. This way the company understands you have researched the position and are in tune with what theyre looking for in an applicant. € One document for all responses: A resume is not a static document. It needs to change depending on the job youre applying to. Although there will be certain information that can remain the same, update the skills and other information based on each position. € One page is best: Applicants were long told to keep their resumes concise, limiting the document to just one page. However, if your experience is extensive or one page cannot contain a long job history, dont be afraid to submit a twopage resume. € Failing to be selective: You need not include your entire job history on a resume, especially if certain past positions you have held are completely irrelevant to the position for which you are applying. Dont be afraid of job gaps, either. Many of todays recruiters understand that the changing economy can make it challenging to maintain steady employment. € Overembellishment: Do not embellish your skills. Always be open and honest on your resume. You may be asked to prove you can perform certain tasks, and if you cannot back up what is included on a resume, you will have wasted your time and the time the interviewer spent discussing his companys opening with you. € Imperfections: A resume is a re”ection of you, so one with typographical errors or a poor layout is never acceptable. Ensure your resume is as professional and error-free as possible. Have a friend or a proofreader look it over before distributing. € Paid positions: Internships or volunteer work are perfectly acceptable to include on a resume, particularly for younger applicants who may not have a wealth of professional experience. Include a mix of information on the resume that will re”ect your versatility. Make sure your resume doesnt cost you a jobMETRO CREATIVE While gender pay gaps may still exist, women can earn high salaries in an array of professions. Much of the talk centered on women in the workforce concerns the disparity between earnings when compared against men in the same positions. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that the earnings difference between women and men varies with age, with younger women in the country more closely approaching pay equity than older women. Still, Pew Research Center says the female median annual earnings is around 83 percent of what men earn in the United States. The gender pay gap exists to some extent in every country in the world. Statistics Canada points out that women between the ages of 25 and 54 earned 87 cents an hour for every dollar made by men in 2015. Business Insider UK says Iceland, Finland and Norway boast relatively small pay gaps between the genders. Even though a gender wage gap may exist, women can still pursue careers that are known to be well-paying. The following are some of the top-earning positions women (and men) can consider, courtesy of Forbes,, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. € Obstetrician/ Gynecologist: Many women feel more comfortable being examined or discussing female issues with female doctors. This may account for the higher percentage of female OB/GYNs in practice. The job can be very rewarding because it enables one to care for women at various stages in life. The median annual salary for OB/ GYNs is $207,000. € Chief executive: Its a large responsibility overseeing an entire company or division, but thats what chief executives do on a daily basis.

They coordinate and implement company-wide IT efforts, including networking, database development and troubleshooting. IT managers earn median annual salaries of $87,400. Women aim for high-paying professions to close wage gapMETRO CREATIVE Back in the day, companies used to offer basic bene“ts packages „ you know, medical, dental, prescription programs and 401(k) matching. Now? Theres a whole lot more on the table, ranging from the practical (paid sick leave) to the practically unbelievable (in-house massage services). According to the 20th anniversary edition of SHRMs yearly Employee Bene“ts research report, there are close to 350 offerings being touted by various companies. Paid foster child leave? You bet. Coverage for health care services provided by video? Yep, that too. Get this: 20 years ago, the organization surveyed HR professionals on approximately 60 perks; 10 years ago, it surveyed them on 219; and now the number increased again to 350. As companies introduce new kinds of bene“ts to attract talent, you need a strategy to evaluate which of their offerings work best for you. Remember: All that glitters is not gold. While some bene“ts are initially attractive, you need to ask yourself which ones are worth getting excited about because theyre the ones youll really use. Before you start interviewing, create a list of your top “ve priorities and rank them in order of importance. For most people, employer-sponsored health insurance is a biggie, since its typically cheaper than what youd get through Obamacare, and can be very valuable to help you cover the catastrophic costs if you get sick. Generous retirement bene“ts are also valuable „ the average 401(k) company match is 3.2 percent, according to the most recent annual survey conducted by the Plan Sponsor Council of America, so keep that in mind when looking around „ and a traditional pension is a rare delight. Someday youll need and want to retire, and an employer helping you save can be very valuable in making that a reality. Beyond the standard health bene“ts, perhaps you want the option to telecommute. Is additional paid time off preferable to a more generous pension? Does free lunch every day sound pretty appealing? This way, when you start interviewing and a hiring manager attempts to dazzle you with their companys bells and whistles, you can clearly determine which bene“ts align with your needs versus the ones that sound great but you will probably never utilize. For example, one of the most recent bene“ts to make the SHRM list was egg freezing for non-medical reasons. As generous a bene“t as it seems, egg freezing might not matter to you at all. What if you dont plan on having any (or any more) children? However, something like a vacation stipend or the option to telecommute three days a week? Well, those may be more relevant and could factor in to your decision as to whether or not accept their job offer. Also, if applicable, think about why youre leaving your current job in the “rst place. If youre primarily looking for career growth and a signi“cant salary increase, how bene“cial are some of these glossy bene“ts anyway? On a practical level, you might want to see if the company offers an employee assistance program (EAP), as it can be a great resource. Millions of workers struggle with challenges such as mental illness, substance abuse, stress. Recognizing this, many companies have EAPs that are designed to help organizations address productivity issues by assisting employees with identifying and resolving personal concerns. EAPs allow individual workers and their family members to con“dentially access professional counselors for a variety of issues related to mental health (such as depression, Which employee benefits are actually worth getting excited about?By VICKI SALEMI MONSTER CAREER EXPERTBENEFITS | 11 JOBS 2 adno=719611

Page 34 E/N/C The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 JOBS 4Find A Job OnlineWe use the Internet to binge watch our favorite shows, shop for clothes, order food, and most importantly, “nd jobs. So, as you go about your job search journey, think about what else youve done online today. Maybe you tweeted or shared a link to an interesting article about your industry from, say, this mornings online Wall Street Journal. Then, perhaps you applied to a few job postings, using the same resume for each listing. After that, you declined an email party invitation from a local business group „ because when you can do just about anything from your computer, who needs to network in person anymore, right? If so, Scott Steinberg, author of The Business Etiquette Bible: Modern and High-Tech Rules, Tips, and Training for Working Professionals, says you just committed three big „ and, unfortunately, all too common „ mistakes. We live in a world of 24/7 connectivity,Ž Steinberg says, but somehow the basic rules of business etiquette have failed to keep up and adapt.Ž As an innovation consultant who speaks to dozens of business groups every year, Steinberg says hes constantly asked how to make the most of new technologies, especially social media.Ž In response, hes written a no-nonsense guide to using the Internet to supercharge your career, instead of (inadvertently) messing it up. Monster recently spoke with Steinberg about best practices for conducting an online job search. Q. First, lets talk about the three mistakes above. Why are they wrong? A. One of my pet peeves is people sharing what I call big links,Ž meaning anything that comes from a major blog, site, or publication that everyone in your business checks often and has probably already read. If you must share, at least add something new, like your own wellinformed opinion or analysis of the topic. The second mistake is taking a one-size“ts-all approach to job postings. Instead, pay close attention to the speci“c keywords and phrases in each particular job description, and customize your application and resume for each one. You need to quickly show hiring managers why youre unique, and why you can achieve better results than the countless other candidates competing with you. Shotgunning every hiring manager with the same pitch isnt going to work. And third, weve all become so wrapped up in our electronic devices that its easy to forget that old-school social networking „ getting to know people in person and building relationships faceto-face „ is still key to getting hired. The Internet is a fantastic tool, but it cant replace that. Q. But with almost everybody on LinkedIn these days, can you use it to help with your networking? A. It helps to be a little bit creative and wideranging in choosing possible connections. Dont limit yourself to people in your own “eld. That is, beyond peers, executives, and thought leaders in your line of work who might potentially open doors for you, search for others with interests similar to yours, or expertise in a related area. For example, if youre in advertising or marketing, look for journalists or video makers, since youre all in the storytelling business in various ways. Then, instead of just sending the standard invitation, briefly tell who you are and why youre interested in connecting. Be sure your invitation answers three essential questions the person is likely to have: Who is this person? Why should I accept their invitation? And how is their experience and what they can offer me relevant to my business? Q. What are the best ways to build your personal brandŽ online? A. Employers and recruiters are always trolling the Internet for talent, so you want to stand out as being so damn good they cant overlook you. One way to do that is to create content, such as articles, videos, blogs, or podcasts, to showcase your skills and knowledge and help others solve problems. Whenever you put anything online, think about your audience. Ask yourself, whats in it for them? Another approach that works, if youre not the one creating the content yourself, is to become a go-to resource for insights into the latest industry happenings and trends. Gathering and curating key data, research, and insights „ especially with an eye toward helping others save time, money, or energy „ is a sure way to showcase your personal brand online. Remember, we live in a world thats drowning in messages and marketing. So theres real value in being a kind of digital DJŽ who helps others discern helpful signals from all the noise.Dos and donts of online job searchesThe Internet can be a great tool for job seekers, says The Business Etiquette BibleŽ author Scott Steinberg, but be careful not to make these common mistakes in your online job search.By ANNE FISHER MONSTER CONTRIBUTOR ADOPTAPET€AnimalWelfareLeague ofCharlotteCounty 3519DranceSt.,Charlotte Harbor;call941-625-6720; €SuncoastHumane Society, 6781SanCasa Drive,Englewood;call 941-474-7884;visit €HumaneSocietyof SarasotaCounty, 2331 15thSt.,Sarasota;call 941-955-4131;visit €EnglewoodAnimal RescueSanctuary, 145W.

Some career advice is applicable throughout your working life, but other advice is only good for certain times in your career. The best career advice for every decade of your life There are some nuggets of career advice that can be carved in stone and hold true for all eternity. But, sometimes the advice has an expiration date. Keep the following in mind as you climb up the ladder, year after year. TeensGo for variety. To “nd a career later that you enjoy, be certain to try out as many different careers as you can,Ž says Carole Stovall, president and CEO of SLSGlobal. Look for summer jobs, after school work, summer programs and internships. Check out these great jobs for high school students. Todd Cherches of BigBlueGumball agrees. Dont be afraid to try or to fail. Thats what these years are meant for. Dont feel that any job is beneath you, because its not. At this stage of your life, everything is a learning experience.Ž20sNow is the time to “nd a job in the “eld where youd like to pursue a career. There are many things to consider, but the most important issues is to consider a job that you actually like, whether it is in your major or not,Ž Stovall says. Its also a good idea to start establishing your individuality. Stop comparing yourself to your friends, especially the ones you went to college with,Ž says Christine Sirois, a freelance journalist in her 20s. Once youre in the job market, its not a level playing “eld and comparing yourself to your friends is a recipe for feeling inadequate and unhappy. Instead, set goals and work at your own pace to achieve them.Ž30sAt this point, youre hitting your stride, but you should remain ”exible in case something new and interesting comes up, Cherches says. You want to be working at what you are good at and what you like to do, and setting yourself up for success, while still allowing for opportunities to take risks and to grow.Ž Being assertive can help set yourself up for that success, says Jill Ivey, senior associate at WIT Strategy. Be clear about what youre looking to get out of your position. If its not a good “t, look at other options. Dont stay in a job that you hate, or that isnt ful“lling, or where theres no room for advancement because youre afraid of change.Ž Alisha Karabinus, lecturer in rhetoric and composition at Purdue University, says your 30s are the time to ask for things and make a clear case for why you should get what you want. Are you valuable? Are you essential? Stop grousing and make a case for a raise or a bonus. Be ready with a clear case and quantifiable deliverables if applicable.Ž40sThis is the time you should establish yourself as an expert, says Peter Engler of Engler Career Group. Develop a career and a resume that few can duplicate so that you stand out from the crowd. Build your network and “nd a good mentor who can provide sage advice.Ž Cori Tyler works in law enforcement and uses his expertise to run his own business, Last Line Defense Training. His career advice for those in their 40s: Know the difference between a job and a career, and decide what priority it truly has in your life.Ž In addition, dont let your work or career de“ne who you are: Those come to an end, sooner or later.Ž50sDespite your expertise, its important to keep learning at this stage, Cherches says. Technology and the marketplace change so quickly that youll need to make an effort to stay current. Your strength lies in combining your years of experience with your ability and willingness to stay ahead of the curve. You may also be thinking about what you want your leadership legacy to be.Ž Artist Ann Klefstad says to look beyond regular jobs. What has worked for me is to take the skills I have and work like the devil to create opportunities to use them, freelancing or consulting.Ž She recommends increasing the amount of your involvement with things you have af“nity for and actively work to meet people involved with them.60s and beyondAt this age, you can market yourself as a sage, but stay humble enough to learn from those younger than you, Cherches says. You want to be a mentor, and yet be willing to be mentored. With that combination of attributes, you will have much to contribute and be much in demand.ŽThe best career advice for every decade of your lifeBy CATHERINE CONLANMONSTER CONTRIBUTOR Orderphotosfromthe SunVisit ,chooseanedition,suchas Charlotte,NorthPortorEnglewood;lookforthe PublishYourPhotosŽboxandclickWeCaptureŽtobe linkedtothepagefororderingphotographs.

The Sun /Sunday, April 29, 2018 E/N/C Page 41 schizophrenia or bipolar disorder), substance abuse, domestic abuse, workplace problems, and challenges that occur in their daily lives or the lives of family members. Again, rely on your list of priorities and factor in your current stage of life, as well as where you will be within the next two to “ve years. If youre planning a family, perhaps a subsidized daycare program will be up your alley, but if your kids are already in middle school, its a moot point. On the surface, it may seem like organizations are using bene“ts as a recruitment and retention tool, but they may be using creative bene“ts simply to differentiate themselves from their competition. For example, its uncommon for a company to have an unlimited-personal-day policy (per the report, only 4% of companies implemented this policy), so if the company youre interviewing with does happen to offer this perk, you may think to yourself, Score! I got the golden ticket!Ž In reality, I wonder if just how much the perk is leveraged. How many days does the average employee at the company actually take off annually? Is the number really that much greater than companies with a typical policy of 20 days per year? The best way to make an informed decision is to have, well, information! During your job interview, ask which bene“ts the companys employees take advantage of the most „ and the least. Request a comprehensive company bene“ts pamphlet or printout, as well as information about what your monthly out-ofpocket medical costs would be, as those are the bene“ts youll most likely be taking advantage of. Companies should provide this information to you before you accept the job offer. When I was a recruiter, my organizations never provided this info to candidates unless someone speci“cally asked for it „ so ask! Make this part of your job search endeavors. Look at the bene“ts on a companys website, and always ask to receive additional information. And, as I said earlier, cash still counts „ both to you and to employers. To keep their “xed costs (like base compensation) from rising, companies are spending more money on bene“ts and bonuses rather than salaries. When you get a job offer, dont neglect negotiating a sign-on bonus (simply ask for one) in addition to your salary. According to the SHRM report, the past “ve years saw a signi“cant uptick in the variety of bonuses being offered to employees, such as spot bonuses, sign-on bonuses and employee referral bonuses. After all, its easier to withdraw a perk than reduce an employees pay. While incredible bene“ts are enticing, they do not outweigh your pay. Fact is, your next pay increase will be determined by your base compensation. One-time tuition reimbursement for an online MBA wont add up to a down payment for a house.BENEFITSFROM PAGE 2JOBS 11 7130 PONTIAC 2008 P O NTIA C SO L S TI C E GTX Turbo, Very low miles, Great Sports Car!

The News Wire Sunday, April 29, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER RUSSIA: FLOATING NUCLEAR PLANT TOWED TO SEA FOR FUELING TRIPSee page 3 RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) „ Efforts to unravel the mysterious fate of North Carolinas fabled Lost Colony could bene“t after a preservation group took out its “rst-ever loan to buy a coastal tract where some colonists may have resettled hundreds of years ago. The 16th century English colonists who vanished after being left in the New World have piqued popular imagination and intrigued historians for centuries. One North Carolina community is even holding a Lost Colony Festival this weekend. The preservation of land linked to their disappearance could enable future researchers to shed new light on the historic riddle. The 1,000-acre property is so special historically and ecologically that the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust decided to take a risk and borrow $5.3 million for a real estate deal, said Lee Leidy, attorney and Northeast Region director for the trust. Its the “rst time in 26 years that the trust has done so. The trust plans to turn the property over to the state, eventually, preserving it for future study. It was a veritable time capsule of important historical events,Ž Leidy said. In addition to being the place where historians now believe some of the colonists resettled, the land in rural Bertie County has been home to an Indian village and to the plantation of Gov. Thomas Pollock, who served two stints as governor in the early 1700s. The land, which includes 3.5 miles along Salmon Creek, is important ecologically, with ”ood plain forests of cypress-gum swamp and Land deal will preserve site linked to Lost Colony mysteryBy MARTHA WAGGONERASSOCIATED PRESSRIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) „ U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, the start of a Middle East visit that of“cials said he would use to call on European and other nations to impose further sanctions against Iran. Pompeo reached the Saudi capital shortly after Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen said they had “red eight ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabias southern city of Jizan. The Saudi civil defense directorate said one person had been killed by shrapnel from the attack, which damaged two houses. It said four missiles had been intercepted by the kingdoms air defense forces. Senior U.S. of“cials traveling with Pompeo blamed Iran for smuggling the missiles into Yemen. They said the incident underscored the importance of the Trump administrations push to counter Iranian supported-aggression in the region. Iran has backed the Houthi rebellion in Yemen and is helping Syrian President Bashar Assads government “ght rebels. Pompeo planned talks with the Saudi king, crown prince and foreign minister just weeks ahead of several key dates that could further roil the volatile region. After leaving Saudi Arabia on Sunday, Pompeo will ”y to Israel and Jordan before ending his “rst trip abroad as Americas top diplomat. The of“cials said Irans longand medium-range missile programs had to be countered as part of efforts to strengthen the Iran nuclear deal, from which President Donald Trump has threatened to withdraw. The of“cials said Pompeo would call on other nations to impose tougher sanctions against Iranian people, businesses and government agencies involved in missile development. They said hed also stress the U.S. commitment to the defense of Saudi Arabia, Israel and other friends and partners in the region. The of“cials traveling with Pompeo said the secretary would also raise Trumps concern about the festering dispute Pompeo kicks off Mideast leg of first trip as top US envoyBy MATTHEW LEEAP DIPLOMATIC WRITERWASHINGTON „ A furious President Donald Trump on Saturday called for the resignation of the Democratic senator who assembled and released what he called falseŽ allegations that scuttled the nomination of the White House doctor whod been in line to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs. Trump stepped up his criticism of Montanas Jon Tester, the top Democrat on the Senate Veterans Committee, in two tweets days after asserting that Tester has to have a big price to payŽ politically in the GOP friendly state for his leading role in Ronny Jacksons failed VA bid. Tester faces a competitive re-election race this year. Tester, in a statement, didnt directly respond to Trump but said he was committed to aiding veterans. At issue are allegations that Tester has said were brought to his attention by more than 20 military and retired military personnel whove worked with Jackson. Tester said not investigating would have been a dereliction of dutyŽ and said making them public was important for the sake of transparency. The charges against Jackson raised questions about his prescribing practices and leadership ability, including accusations of drunkenness on the job. Testers of“ce collected the allegations, FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. „ On the day after the Parkland school shooting, children across Florida were brought to hospitals by police or other authorities to undergo emergency mental health exams „ an unusually high number that kept climbing in the days that followed. On Feb. 27, about two weeks after the Valentines Day massacre, 195 children across Florida were taken for psychiatric observation under the states Baker Act. The number is the highest single daily total in nearly “ve years, according to “gures obtained by the Sun Sentinel. The data suggest that not only were children upset and fearful after the highly publicized shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, but schools and other professionals were more vigilant in hospitalizing children who might pose a threat to others „ like school shooter Nikolas Cruz, experts said. School and mental health professionals never sent Cruz for emergency psychiatric treatment despite their longstanding knowledge of his troubled mental health. Had he ever been committed for long-term treatment, he would have been banned from buying guns under federal law.

The military also uses the area as a central training route and supported the preservation, Leidy said. The nonpro“t trust, which has preserved almost 70,000 undeveloped acres since 1992, purchased the land last year and plans to pay off the loans with money from grants. While theres no speci“c timetable for turning the property over to the state, an of“cial from the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation will visit the site May 14, Leidy said. Englands ill-fated “rst settlement in North America was established in 1587, when 116 English settlers landed on Roanoke Island in what is now North Carolina, led by explorer John White. He left them there when he sailed back to England that same year for more supplies. When he returned in 1590, delayed by war between England and Spain, none of the colonists remained. White knew the majority had planned to move 50 miles into the maine,Ž as he wrote, referring to the mainland. The only clues he found about the fate of the other two dozen were the word CROATOANŽ carved into a post and CROŽ lettered on a tree trunk, leading historians to suspect they moved south to live with American Indians on whats now Hatteras Island. Archaeologists now believe that some found their way to the land in Bertie County. The possibility “rst came to light in 2012, when researchers at the British Museum in London announced they had found a drawing of a fort that had been obscured under a patch on a map of Virginia and North Carolina drawn by White in the 1580s. The drawing placed the fort in an area of Bertie County where archaeologists have found colonial-era English pottery and signs of a Native American village. While the area is best known now for its probable Lost Colony connection, it has more pottery shards from the Indian village of Mettaquem than from the Europeans, said Nick Luccketti, co-vice president of the First Colony Foundation, the group spearheading the archaeological dig on a parcel known as Site X. The Native Americans are a hugely important part of the story,Ž said Phil Evans, president of the foundation. We tend to take a Euro-centric view but ... that site can tell a whole century of North Carolina history from 1584 to the Tuscarora wars of the 1700s. Its a century of North Carolina history thats often forgotten because there are no standing structures for people to see.Ž Luccketti and Evans believe perhaps up to 12 members of the Lost Colony settled on Site X, possibly as a watch party for incoming friendly or enemy ships. The remains of other small settlements or a single large one could be located nearby in areas where they havent dug, they said. Meanwhile, the small town of Windsor, population about 27,000, is hosting its third annual Lost Colony Festival on Saturday. The towns tourism director, Billy Smithwick, envisions a Lost Colony visitors center there after the state takes over the property, along with other attractions to attract visitors. Its a little gift from heaven,Ž he said.COLONYFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDED BY FIRST COLONY FOUNDATION VIA APIn this 2017 photo provided by the First Colony Foundation, archaeologist Anthony W. Smith records information on a grid square that he excavated at Site X, in Bertie County, N.C. Experts say the way authorities matched DNA from decadesold crime scenes to a suspect arrested this week in the Golden State Killer case represents something new. Ruth Dickover, director of UC Davis forensic science program, described law enforcements approach as a glimpse into a future in which virtually all genetic information is accessible to the government. Unlike a Social Security number that can be forged,Ž she said, your DNA is your DNA, and its with you from birth to even a little after death.Ž The arrest of Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. this week in the terrifying attacks in the 1970s and 1980s has sparked debate about police tactics and whether the DNA match raises privacy concerns.How exactly did they make the match?It hinged on, an open-source platform in which people volunteer their genetic information in hopes of “nding long-lost family members. The largest genealogy services, 23andme and, conduct DNA tests for paying customers but largely shield their “ndings from other parties. GEDmatch is a free service; consenting users upload test results from a variety of genealogy websites and cross-reference their “ndings to discover relatives who might have tested with different companies. Its kind of intended to be unregulated so people on their own initiative can load their information,Ž UC Berkeley law professor Andrea Roth said. Its easy to see why people would cheer the use of such tactics, Roth said. But before we celebrate, we have to remember that the government probably looked at a lot of innocent people before getting here,Ž she said.What does GEDmatch have to say?GEDmatch says it was not approached by law enforcement regarding the case, but it said users should be cognizant their data could be used by outside parties. While the database was created for genealogical research, it is important that GEDmatch participants understand the possible uses of their DNA, including identi“cation of relatives that have committed crimes or were victims of crimes,Ž the company said in a statement. If you are concerned about non-genealogical uses of your DNA, you should not upload your DNA to the database and/ or you should remove your DNA that has already been uploaded.Ž Founded in 2011, the site is run by genealogical enthusiasts and is funded by donations and sales of more sophisticated search features. It has amassed around 950,000 user pro“les „ a fraction of 23andmes more than 2 million customers ands 10 million test-takers. But GEDmatchs data are not encrypted and are stored in plain text. The companys privacy policy warns its information could be used for purposes beyond genealogical research. That made the site the perfect tool for investigators, who were able to search without needing a warrant and parse genetic pro“les of a new swath of individuals who hadnt previously been arrested.What are the privacy concerns?DNA doesnt simply identify an individual, warned Lee Tien, senior staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It identi“es whole families. People say, I signed this consent form, but he or she is not the only one. The privacy of everyone Im related to is affected,Ž Tien said. If investigators had no reasonable suspicion the Golden State Killer or his relatives were GEDmatch users, the tactic is the de“nition of a “shing expedition,Ž Tien said. Melissa Deangelo, a user from Mississippi, said Friday she was surprised by the companys disclosure that DNA housed on the site may have played a role in the suspects arrest. Is it an invasion of privacy? Yes,Ž she said. Was it worth the risk considering what he was doing? It was.Ž Former Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley thinks the public safety bene“t of mining DNA outweighs privacy concerns. Law enforcement was creative and resourceful, and what they did was lawful and I commend them,Ž Cooley said. It doesnt mean there wont be issues raised, but at the end of day, you have to give a certain amount of weight to taking a serial murderer and rapist who has been unapprehended for four decades off the streets.ŽCRACKING THE GOLDEN STATE KILLER CASE: Clever detective work or a violation of privacy?By JOSEPH SERNA, RICHARD WINTON, TRACEY LIEN, BENJAMIN ORESKES and PAIGE ST.

Kate James and Tom Evans said their sons death overnight in Liverpool, England had left them heartbroken.Ž Al“es condition left him with almost no brain function, and multiple courts ruled that keeping him alive was not in his best interests before doctors removed his ventilator “ve days ago. My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30,Ž Evans, 21, wrote in a Facebook post decorated with a broken heart and crying emojis. As news spread in the community, dozens of people laid ”owers and mementoes in a park near Alder Hey Childrens Hospital in Liverpool, where Al“e was treated. About 1,000 people gathered 12 hours after the boy died to release blue and purple balloons in solidarity with the grieving mother and father who had struggled to come to terms with their childs terminal illness. James, 20, posted a message on social media thanking everyone who supported the family through Al“es illness and court “ght. Al“es case sparked a medical ethics debate that resonated far beyond Britain. Doctors overseeing his care said further treatment was futile and he should be allowed to die. But his parents fought for months to try to convince judges to allow them to take him to the Vaticans childrens hospital, where life support would have been maintained. Under British law, courts are asked to intervene when parents and doctors disagree on the right course of treatment for a child. In such cases, the rights of the child take primacy over the parents right to decide whats best for their daughters and sons. Pope Francis, who met with Evans and publicly supported the parents campaign to bring Al“e to Bambino Gesu Hospital, wrote condolences that were posted Saturday on Twitter. I am deeply moved by the death of little Al“e,Ž Francis said. Today I pray especially for his parents, as God the Father receives him in his tender embrace.Ž Italy granted Al“e citizenship and put a military plane on standby to transport him to Rome, if the courts allowed it. Goodbye, little Al“e. We loved you,Ž Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano tweeted Saturday. Tensions between the toddlers parents and the hospital had eased in recent days. Evans, who earlier said doctors were wrong about Al“es prognosis and threatened to resume the court battle over his care, pledged to work with hospital staff to give his son dignity and comfortŽ in his “nal days. Our lives have been turned upside down by the intense focus on Al“e and his situation,Ž Evans said Thursday outside the Liverpool hospital. He thanked the hospital staff for their dignity and professionalism during what must be an incredibly dif“cult time for them too.Ž Alder Hey issued a statement to express heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Al“es family.Ž All of us feel deeply for Al“e, Kate, Tom and his whole family and our thoughts are with them,Ž the hospital said. This has been a devastating journey for them, and we would ask that their privacy and the privacy of staff at Alder Hey is respected.Ž Al“es case received widespread attention outside Britain, especially in predominantly Catholic countries. Pope Francis recently appealed for the wishes of the boys parents to be heeded, saying only God can decide who dies. Of“cials in Poland and Italy criticized Britains courts and state-run National Health Service. A leading right-wing politician in Italy, Veneto Gov. Luca Zaia, said that in Al“e, the so-called civilized world has supplied the latest proof of enormous incivility.Ž Supporters of the parents staged angry protests regularly outside the hospital and tried to storm the entrance at times.

U.S. Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt tweeted that the approval built on Prime Minister Alexis Tsiprass visit to the White House in October. Tsipras leads the Greek cabinet. TEHRAN, Iran (AP) „ Iranian authorities have detained the head of a reformist newspaper over an article that alleged prostitution at a residential complex in the eastern city of Mashhad. The semi-of“cial ISNA news agency reported Saturday that several people “led legal complaints about the article in the Shargh newspaper, saying it had insulted women. The article provided no evidence to support its claim of prostitution. ISNA quoted Hassan Heidari, the deputy prosecutor in Mashhad, as saying that the newspapers director general, Mehdi Rahmanian, was detained and will be required to pay compensation to the plaintiffs. Iran has detained a number of reform-minded journalists over the years and shuttered media seen as overly critical of the government. CAIRO (AP) „ An Egyptian court has sentenced 13 policemen to between three and “ve years in prison for taking part in a 2015 strike demanding higher pay and better working conditions. Eleven were sentenced to three years in prison and two were sentenced to “ve on charges of illegal assembly, inciting against the Interior Ministry, which is in charge of law enforcement, and belonging to an outlawed group. The Cairo Criminal Courts verdict on Saturday was reported by the state-run Al-Ahram website. The verdict can be appealed. In 2015, hundreds of policemen went on strike in the northeastern province of Sharqiya. Egypt outlawed all unauthorized protests in 2013, after the military overthrew an elected Islamist president amid mass protests calling for his resignation.

The “res cause has not been established, authorities said. Re”ecting the buildings significance in Azerbaijan, Emergency Situations Minister Kamalladin Heydarov was at the scene. The ministry said the “re started on the 18th ”oor and burned for three hours. The “re lasted a long time due to a lack of water,Ž Deputy Minister Etibar Mammadov said. The reasons for the “re are being investigatedŽ The Trump Organization canceled its licensing deal for the planned hotel in December 2016, one month after Donald Trump was elected U.S. president. The company had partnered on the project with Anar Mammadov, the son of the transport minister of Azerbaijan at the time, Ziya Mammadov. The elder Mammadov was suspected by U.S. diplomats of laundering money for Irans military, according to leaked diplomatic cables made available in 2010. Financial disclosures “led by his campaign, Trump earned between $2.5 million and $2.8 million in management fees from the unopened hotel. Plans to open the high-rise as a business center so far havent materialized. MADRID (AP) „ Tens of thousands of people have marched in northern Spain for a third consecutive day to protest the acquittal of “ve men on gang rape charges.

Shes charged with theft for stealing a blue morpho butter”y from Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati two weeks ago. The theft was recorded by a surveillance camera, prompting police to seek the publics help in “nding the butter”y thief. Court documents say police used information from an Instagram account to arrest Revis.

The of“cials were not authorized to publicly preview Pompeos meetings with Saudi leaders and spoke on condition of anonymity. Trump has set a May 12 deadline to decide whether to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, something he appears likely to do despite heavy pressure to stay in from European and other parties. Two days later, the U.S. plans to open its new embassy in Jerusalem. That will mark a signi“cant shift in decades of American policy toward Israel and the Palestinians, who also claim the holy city as their capital. The embassy move is deeply opposed by the Palestinians, who on May 15 will mark the anniversary of what they term the nabka,Ž or catastrophe, when they ”ed or were driven from their homes during the 1948 Palestine war. Dozens of Palestinians have been killed by Israeli “re during recent violent protests along border between Israel and Gaza.

In a state without easy access to mental health care, the Baker Act has become the foremost way to get help for those in distress. It allows for people who are too sick to care for themselves „ or at risk of killing themselves or others „ to be held for up to 72 hours for a psychiatric exam and possibly be committed by a judge for longer treatment. Between 2011 and 2016, the number of children hospitalized under the act rose by nearly 50 percent, far higher than the growth in the states population, according to the University of South Florida, which tracks Baker Acts. Among the reasons cited for the increase: cyberbullying, limited mental health services, a shift away from arresting juveniles, and mass shootings, according to a 2017 Florida Department of Children and Families report. The Parkland shooting, at least in the initial weeks, drove the numbers even higher, according to the universitys data, which is preliminary. Typically this school year an average of 118 children a day underwent involuntary mental exams in Florida. The day after the Parkland shooting, there were at least 177 Baker Acts of children statewide. On Feb. 20, there were 188. The 195 seen on Feb. 27 appears to be the peak, the universitys numbers show. In March the “gures dropped and were more in line with the daily average before the shooting, as fears dissipated and children coped better. There was a true increase in anxiety, stress and depression leading people to feel like they were unsafe,Ž said Jill EhrenreichMay, a University of Miami associate professor in child psychology. In addition, school professionals naturally wanted to make sure nobody slipped through the cracks again.Ž In the two weeks after the shooting, Broward schools sent 34 children to hospitals for psychiatric exams, district data shows. Thats more than twice the number they sent in all of January. Most of the 34 students were considered suicidal, but seven were described as homicidal. Due to privacy laws, no details were provided on the nature of those cases or the ages of the children. The shooting itself is what triggered this spike,Ž said Antoine Hickman, executive director of the Broward Public Schools Exceptional Student Learning Support Division. Why wasnt Cruz, who had an emotional behavioral disorder, a chaotic home life and other complex developmental disabilities, ever hospitalized by authorities? Thats the million-dollar question. It seems like he should have been,Ž said Ehrenreich-May, the University of Miami expert. Predicting whether a child will act on an impulse to kill himself or someone else is very dif“cult, research shows. The Baker Act law has limitations „ designed to protect peoples freedom and liberties „ which, in this case, failed Cruz. Under the law, authorities must have a reason to believe that someone is likely to seriously hurt himself or others in the near future. Records show Cruz was able to fend off attempts to hospitalize him by simply denying that he had any intention of killing himself or anyone else. For example, in a 2013 incident at the Cruzs Parkland home, Nikolas, then 13, threw a chair, yelled, called his mother a useless bitch,Ž and barricaded himself in his room, according to a police report. A sheriffs deputy went so far as to handcuff him and put him in the back of a cruiser while assessing the situation. A counselor from Henderson Behavioral Health arrived, his mom gave him medicine, and he calmed down. He had no injuries and there were no guns in his room. The counselor told the deputy that because his behavior was under control, and he did not make any threats of harm to him or others, a Baker Act was not needed,Ž according to the police report. A few years later, authorities had another opportunity but failed to act. In late September 2016, Cruz allegedly told a classmate he drank gasoline the prior week, had cut his arms, and had a gun at home and was thinking of using it, according to mental health records. The school resource of“cer at Stoneman Douglas, Broward Sheriffs Deputy Scot Peterson „ later tarred publicly for failing to rush into the freshman building to halt Cruzs murderous attack „ wanted then to hospitalize Cruz. Two school counselors agreed. But it wasnt done, for reasons that currently remain unclear. Instead, a counselor from Henderson questioned Nikolas and he denied drinking gas and said he owned only a pellet gun. He admitted scratching his arm with a pencil sharpener blade over a breakup with a girl, but said he was no longer lonely and had no desire to kill himself or anyone else. The counselor drew up a safety planŽ for Cruz that included coping strategies in times of stress, such as reading magazines, watching TV, “shing and spending time with pets. His mother was told to lock up sharp objects and alcohol. He was not hospitalized. The following day, Sept. 29, 2016, a school guidance counselor asked Henderson to again evaluate Cruz because he was talking of buying a gun, now that he was 18. The counselor feared his mom would allow him to get a state ID so he could make the purchase. On that day, the school resource of“cer did not believe Cruz met the criteria to be hospitalized, the assessment notes show. The school instead created another safety plan,Ž that involved taking Nikolas backpack away from him, noting that he had written the word killŽ in a notebook because he was mad at his mom, the records show. Another Henderson counselor visited the home, and Cruz explained: I was angry then, but I wouldnt hurt my mom.Ž The counselor wrote: Currently there are no guns at the home. At this time client does not meet criteria for B.A. (Baker Act).ŽMENTAL HEALTHFROM PAGE 1which included a claim that Jackson got drunk and wrecked a government vehicleŽ at a Secret Service going-away party. Trump tweeted early Saturday that the allegations are proving false. The Secret Service is unable to con“rm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family. Tester should resign.Ž Trump said people in Montana, a state he won by 20 percentage points in 2016, will not stand for this kind of slander.Ž He called Jackson the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered. Not fair, Tester!Ž Before leaving for a rally in Michigan, Trump directed another tweet at Tester, likening the senators claims against Jackson to the phony Russian CollusionŽ accusations leveled against Trumps 2016 campaign. Tester should lose race in Montana. Very dishonest and sick!Ž A written statement by Tester didnt respond directly to Trumps remarks. Its my duty to make sure Montana veterans get what they need and have earned, and Ill never stop “ghting for them as their Senator,Ž it said. It also said Trump has signed eight Tester bills on veterans into law. A spokeswoman for the committee chairman, Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., declined comment Saturday on Trumps tweets. When Amanda Maddox was asked whether Isakson was troubled by Testers release of the allegations, she cited comments the chairman made Thursday: Everyone has an obligation if they make a charge to release it. And everyone who is charged has a right to have a day in court to be heard.Ž The White House said Friday, one day after Jackson withdrew his nomination, that internal records raise doubt about some of the most serious accusations. The White House said its records, including police reports, show Jackson was in three minor incidents in government vehicles during the past “ve years, but none involved the use of alcohol and he was not found to be at fault. In one case, a side-view mirror was clipped by a passing truck. In another incident an enraged driver in Montgomery County, Maryland, allegedly punched out Jacksons window during a morning drive to Camp David. The White House medical unit that Jackson ran successfully passed regular controlled substance audits, according to the records for the last three years. The reviews did recommend improvements to the medical units handling of controlled substances, but did not “nd misconduct. The Associated Press reviewed the documents Friday. They were the result of an internal White House review of allegations raised against Jackson during his brief con“rmation process. The White House says the records disprove the allegations. Testers of“ce has not speci“ed the time frame during which the alleged misconduct occurred, and a spokeswoman on Friday said the of“ce would not comment until it knew more about the White House records. Separately, the Secret Service said it has no evidence to support an allegation that its personnel intervened to prevent Jackson from disturbing former President Barack Obama during a foreign trip in 2015. In a statement dated Thursday, the Secret Service said it had conducted a thorough reviewŽ of internal documents related to Obamas foreign trips in 2015 and interviewed people who were present. The agency said it has found no information that would indicate the allegation is accurateŽ and no record of any incident involving Jackson. CNN had reported allegations that Jackson drunkenly banged on the hotel room door of a female employee and that Secret Service personnel intervened out of concern that he would wake Obama. Jackson has denied the accusations, calling them baseless and anonymous attacksŽ on his character and integrity that are completely false and fabricated.Ž The Democratic staff on the Senate committee also claimed Jackson had doled out such a large supply of a prescription opioid that staffers panicked because they thought the drugs were missing. They said their allegations were based on conversations with 23 of Jacksons current and former colleagues at the White House Medical Unit.TESTERFROM PAGE 1 US House OKs balloon pilot medical exams after Texas crashPolice: man who killed Maine deputy in custodyAUSTIN, Texas (AP) „ The U.S. House has approved a measure requiring medical checks for commercial hot air balloon pilots in an effort to avoid a reoccurrence of a 2016 crash that killed 16 people in Texas. The House voted Friday on a wide-ranging Federal Aviation Administration bill that includes a provision requiring medical checks similar to those required for helicopter and airline pilots. The vote comes after federal investigators last year scolded the FAA for lax oversight in the wake of the deadliest hot air balloon crash in U.S. history. The National Transportation Safety Board has determined that Alfred Nichols was probably impaired by Valium, opioids and other drugs before the takeoff south of Austin. NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine (AP) „ The search for a man accused of killing a sheriffs deputy came to an end Saturday, the fourth day of an intense manhunt in the woods of central Maine. The Maine Department of Public Safety reported that 29-year-old John Williams was in custody but declined to release details of his arrest. Williams was wanted in the fatal shooting early Wednesday of Cpl. Eugene Cole in the town of Norridgewock. Police declined to say whether Williams had been apprehended, or had turned himself in. On Saturday, the slain deputys | HEADLINES AROUND THE NATIONwife made a personal appeal to his killer to turn himself in, or at least talk to police. Sheryl Cole assured the gunman in a statement that this is all that were asking of you. Please, please talk to us.Ž She promised Williams that hed be treated with dignity and respect.Ž About 200 law enforcement of“cials had been taking part in the manhunt each day since Wednesday. On Saturday, searchers were using foot patrols and aircraft in a certain part of the woods where they thought he might be hiding. Cole was 62 and a 13-year veteran of the department.

Heres another right: If youre a shareholder of common stock and the company goes under, filing for bankruptcy, you have the right to a portion of its assets and income. Heres the bad news, though: Youll get that only after creditors, bondholders and holders of preferred stock are paid whats due to them. In many such situations, then, common stockholders end up with little or nothing. Shareholders can agitate for change, too. If they hold enough sway, they can submit proposals that get voted on. They can also try to ask management questions at annual meetings. That can be hard, though, if only a few questions are taken and answered. Still, if youre a shareholder of a company, aim to act like a part owner. Hold management responsible and ask for the changes youd like to see.

Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentTwice BurnedI got burned on stock in Molycorp, a rare-earth materials company. That kind of thing happens. The dumb part was that I did it twice! I made a bad move, got out, berated myself for bailing out, then saw the stock price go way lower. So I bought again, watched it drop more, got out, and resisted the temptation to try it again „ I wont let a stock fool me three times. Unless its a large, stable company with a long, profitable track record, my mantra now is, Burn me once, youre done.Ž „ R.L., Cincinnati The Fool Responds: Molycorp was once flying high, but then China increased the worlds supply of the rare elements used for products such as batteries, camera lenses, catalytic converters, hard drives and MRI machines. Prices dropped, and Molycorp ended up with years of massive losses, eventually filing for bankruptcy protection. It emerged as a new company later, but only after shareholders were wiped out. The lesson here is to not try to catch a falling knife. Low and lower prices can be appealing, but they tend to reflect a company in trouble. Unless you have strong reason to believe the company will ultimately recover and prosper, aim to make money elsewhere. Selling at a loss is better than selling at a greater loss later. Companies that file for bankruptcy protection will often end up burning their shareholders. Oops!QTheres an error in the federal tax return I filed.

The Sun /Sunday, April 29, 2018 Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: My adult son passed away two years ago at a young age. We were very close while he was growing up. He married young, and I maintained a great relationship with both him and his wife. They gave me the most precious grandchildren any woman could ask for, and I am extremely active in their little lives. My daughter-in-law has moved on. She met a nice young man, and they are planning to be married in the near future. Do you think I would be out of line to request to have my sons ashes back home with me? We live near each other, I love her very much, and we still have a great relationship. I dont want to damage it by asking this if its not appropriate. I would pass his ashes on to his children when they grow up, of course, but for now, Id love to have my son back home with me and his dad because she has started her new life. My husband is noncommittal about the subject. When I broach it, he says he doesnt want to talk about it.Ž I really have no one to ask or conde in about this. Your thoughts would be most appreciated. „ STILL BROKENHEARTED IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR STILL BROKENHEARTED: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your clearly dearly beloved son. If you would like to have his ashes after his widow remarries, I doubt she would be oended if you asked what her plans are for them and if you could have them or split them with her. I can understand why you would want them, but Im not at all certain your grandchildren would welcome that responsibility when they become adults. Your husband may be reluctant to discuss this because he is still grieving and hurting, too. However, because you are, as you say, still brokenhearted, please consider grief counseling and joining a grief support group. DEAR ABBY: I have an elderly friend who complains nonstop when I phone her. She lives a three-hour drive from me and expects me to be the one to call. She doesnt carry long-distance on her home phone, and her sight is too poor to dial numbers, although shes able to see the TV. I feel sad for her, but I dread calling her because of her negative attitude about life in general. Its a shame to end a 40-year friendship, but I dont believe Im helping her or myself by listening to all her complaints. Should I write her and say I wish shed try to be more positive? She has health issues, but I know many people who try to be pleasant in spite of poor health. „ FEELING BAD FOR HER, BUT ... DEAR FEELING BAD: If the alternative to telling your elderly friend how her constant negativity aects you would be to drop her entirely, convey to her what you have written to me. The woman appears to be very isolated and possibly depressed. If she has family, suggest they involve her in activities for seniors in the community. Contact with other seniors might give her spirits and her outlook a much-needed boost.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

It can be tough to get it out of your clothing. Heres what to do: Take o your garments as soon as you get back into the house. First, check the care label. For washable clothing, use either one of the following cleaning methods: 1. Buy a stain remover with dry-cleaning solvent (test fabric for colorfastness). Place the sap-stained area facedown on a clean cloth or paper towels. Carefully squirt the solvent on the back side of the stain and press with another cloth to push through. Then let the garment air-dry. 2. Mix powdered laundry detergent (no bleach) with water to create a paste and apply it to the stained area. Let the mixture remain on the fabric for about 30 minutes and then wash as usual.

Heres how: Put the raw celery in a bowl or stand it cut end down in cold water. Add two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to perk up the avor. Then soak it for about an hour in the refrigerator, and it should be crunchy once again. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: We have several sisal rugs in our house and we love them, but theyre dirty now. How can I clean them? „ Valerie from California Dear Valerie: These are wonderful coverings for oors. How you clean them will depend on the kind you have: natural-ber sisal, such as sea green, coconut or paper bers; or synthetic ber sisal consisting of nylon or woolblend materials. For natural-ber sisals, read and follow the manufacturers recommended directions, which may be a dry-cleaning method or hot-water extraction. For cleaning synthetic-ber sisals, manufacturers suggest that you use only a dry-cleaning method. Dont ever steam clean or shampoo this kind of sisal. Too much dampness can cause natural-ber rugs to pucker or shrink. „ Heloise Dear Readers: Termites can be dangerous to your home. Check for them regularly. Because termites chow down on wood, they will seek damaged decks, porches or steps. If you see any of this, call a professional exterminator as soon as possible. Do not delay, because termites can eat into the supporting structure of your home. Termites are always digging dirt tunnels to look for water, so keep them away from your home. Dont put wooden planters or a pile of rewood close to your house. Wood and water are too tempting to termites! „ HeloiseAs widow moves on from death, mom hopes to claim sons ashesDear Abby Hints from Heloise


Page 8 The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 STATE NEWSFORT LAUDERDALE „ South Floridas Billy Mitchell, once declared the Video Game Player of the Century, is now facing the ultimate test of his skills: salvaging his reputation. Twin Galaxies, competitive gamings governing body, found him guilty of cheating. On April 12, it banned Mitchell for life and removed all his high scores from their record books, including his undisputed Donkey Kong and Pac-Man records from the 1980s and 1990s. Mitchell has begun to assemble a group of experts to dispute the “ndings. He plans to show that Donkey Kong loading screens from his games are from the real arcade game, not a software emulator, as his detractors have claimed. An emulator allows a computer program to imitate another program. He also wants to “nd witnesses for his most recent „ and most disputed „ high score, a 1,062,800-point benchmark set at the now-shuttered Boomers in Dania Beach. They said it was this version or that version (of a software emulator). When they “nally said its a speci“c version, somebody came out and said that version didnt come out until two years after I played the game,Ž said Mitchell, in his “rst interview since losing his records. I dont really know „ I dont know anything about this stuff.Ž Mitchell, a longtime Hollywood resident who now lives in Weston, achieved the high score at the Boomers location on July 31, 2010. He recalls more than 100 people shuf”ing in and out, a few dozen at any one time, as he ran up the scoreboard for several hours that day. But it was only the latest in a run of high scores going back decades. In 1982, at the age of 17, Mitchell became the “rst person to reach the fabled kill screen of Donkey Kong, when the arcade game reaches its memory limit at level 117 and Mario seemingly commits suicide, dying for no reason. His total: 874,300 points. He followed that up by reclaiming the Donkey Kong high score four more times, three against Steve Wiebe, his rival in the 2007 documentary The King of Kong,Ž a “lm that cemented Mitchells image as the black hat of competitive gaming. Barrel, jump, hammer, smash. 933,900 points. 1,047,200 points. 1,050,200 points. 1,062,800 points. Its those last two high scores that have landed him in hot water. Twin Galaxies, the Guinness World Recordsanctioned keeper of video game high scores, ruled Mitchells scores were achieved on software that emulates Donkey Kong, not on the arcade game itself. Thats a problem because the software would allow someone to save and stop a game, which in turn would allow them to go back and replay if they die or get a score on a level they dont like. Its a far fall for a man declared the Video Game Player of the CenturyŽ in 1999 by the Japanese Amusement Machine and Marketing Association. He had just pulled off the “rst perfect Pac-Man score in history „ 256 levels, consuming every fruit, every dot, every power pellet and every blue ghost with every power pellet consumed, all without dying once. 3,333,360 points. Probably my strongest accolade is that I did the “rst perfect Pac-Man,Ž Mitchell said. It was quite the gala event. It was at the largest arcade in the world. Namco (Pac-Mans creator) took me and ”ew me to Japan, where I had to repeat the performance.Ž Now, as far as the score-keeping body is concerned, that never happened. Not to mention his record-setting scores in Donkey Kong Jr, Ms. Pac-Man and Burger Time. The tally: 957,300 points. 703,560 points. 7,881,050 points and an unknown number of hot dogs and eggs crushed beneath giant hamburger ingredients. The idea that they would go back and undo what was done more than 30 years ago in front of cameras and Life Magazine and the best gamers of the day „ its laughable,Ž he said.Video game champ stripped of record scores fighting backBy DAN SWEENEYSUN SENTINEL TAIMY ALVAREZ/ SOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL VIA APIn this March 22 photo, Billy Mitchell, a competitive gamer plays at Arcade Game Sales in Fort Lauderdale.Man shoots wife going to bathroom, mistaking her for burglar Man gets life in prison for fatal synthetic opioid overdose Man hit, killed by trainWINTER GARDEN (AP) „ Authorities in Florida say a man shot his wife twice when she went to the bathroom, saying he mistook her for a burglar. Winter Garden police said the couple thought they heard an intruder in the home, but after checking their suburban Orlando home, they both went to bed. Local media report the wife, Allison Simmons, got up to go to the restroom about 45 minutes later and used her phones light to “nd her way. When she got out, she woke her husband, Nathan Simmons, who shot at her two times fearing it was the intruder they were seeking. Allison was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment with non-life-threatening injuries. Both husband and wife gave similar accounts of the Wednesday incident, but an investigation is ongoing. ORLANDO (AP) „ A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to life in prison for supplying synthetic opioids to a woman who died in Florida. Court records show that 43-year-old Jeremy Achey was sentenced Friday in Orlando federal court. He was convicted in January of conspiracy to distribute and distribution of controlled substances. Authorities say Achey was one of the largest synthetic drug distributors on Alphabay Market, a DarknetŽ marketplace for illicit substances. Records show Achey mailed thousands of packages containing synthetic drugs to hundreds of customers throughout the United States. Prosecutors say Achey sold one gram of Tetrahydrofuran fentanyl, a synthetic analogue of fentanyl, in February 2017 to a 24-year-old Orlando woman, who later died of an overdose.

Sunday, April 29, 2018 SPORTS € @SunCoastSportsREADY TO ROLLRookie quarterbacks are set to get to work following the 2018 NFL Draft. Page 6NFL: Draft adno=50532904*See website for detai lsBy GREG AUMANTampa Bay TimesAfter two days of trading and piling up draft picks, the Bucs had a lowkey Saturday, rounding out a promising class with three players who fit the mold of what general manager Jason Licht is trying to build. This year of finding that guy, that man that embodies what were looking for on this football team ƒ that are wired the specific way that we want guys to be wired ƒ these guys that we picked, they certainly are in that category,Ž Licht said. On Saturday, that was Pittsburgh safety Jordan Whitehead in the fourth round, Penn receiver Justin Watson in the fifth and Wisconsin linebacker Jack Cichy in the sixth round, each with their own compelling storylines. Whitehead, a cousin of former Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis, went to his cousins draft party 11 years ago and had Revis mother at his in Aliquippa, Pa., on Saturday. He gave me a lot of advice going through this thing,Ž Whitehead said. Stay humble, anything could happen throughout this weekend ƒ You can learn from the best right there, and hes right there in front of me. I take everything from him.Ž In 140 years of Penn football, Watson is the Quakers career leader in catches, yards and touchdowns, topping 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons. He boasts a 40-inch vertical and ran a 4.42 at his Bucs close draft with more than expected AP PHOTOBoston Bruins center David Krejci (46) shoots during the first period against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. By DOUG ALDEN Associated PressBOSTON „ Wilson Ramos went deep again and scored on Denard Spans inside-the-park homer, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 12-6 on Saturday for their eighth consecutive victory. Its the longest win streak for Tampa Bay since taking nine in a row in July 2014. The resurgent Rays have won nine of 10 overall to move within one game of .500 at 12-13. Johnny Field and Carlos Gomez also connected for Tampa Bay, and Matt Duffy finished with four hits. Fields three-run drive in the ninth was his first career homer. Ramos belted a tworun shot in the third against David Price, extending his homer streak to three games. Boston lost for the fifth time in seven games. It also had to replace star outfielder Mookie Betts after the fourth inning due to tightness in his right hamstring. Rafael Devers homered for the Red Sox, and Price (2-3) was charged with six runs, five earned, and eight hits in 5 ‡ innings against his first major league team. Ryan Yarbrough (1-1) got the win with four innings in relief of rookie starter Yonny Chirinos, who recorded just six outs. Gomezs leadoff drive in the seventh made it 7-5, and Fields extended Tampa Bays lead with a drive to left against Brian Johnson. The first of the Rays three homers never left the park. Ramos led off the second with a double and scored when Spans sinking line drive got past Jackie Bradley Jr. and rolled slowly to the wall in center. Span was already at third by the time Andrew Benintendi got over from left and fielded the ball.

I just wanted to make sure that everybody saw that my blade was off.Ž Rask settled after allowing a second-period goal while trying to let officials know he had a problem with his left skate, finishing with 34 saves in the Bruins 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series. Rick Nash had two goals and the Bruins high-scoring line of Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand combined for 11 points, however Rasks ability to retain his composure after Mikhail Sergachevs goal trimmed Bostons lead to 3-2 was every bit as important. He was really good,Ž Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. He gave us more than a chance to win early on when we were still trying to find our legs. We werent Bruins zap LightningNHL: Buins 6, Lightning 2Nash, Bergeron score twice to lead Bruins to victory By BARRY WILNER Associated PressARLINGTON, Texas (AP) „ Shaquem Griffin came back. The crowd loved it. Players in attendance not selected in the first two days of the NFL draft usually head out of town before the fourth through seventh rounds. Griffin, who sat through 100 names being called in the first three rounds, wasnt in AT&T Stadium on Saturday. Then he was after Seattle spent the 141st overall selection on the Central Florida linebacker who has no left hand. That fifth-round choice, announced in Seattle, drew loud cheers from fans at Jerrys World. Griffin, whose left hand was amputated when he was young, has become the feel-good story this year and one of the most popular players in this draft because of his perseverance, outgoing personality and, of course, his talent. Griffin helped UCF go undefeated last season, then blew through the NFL combine with a 4.38 in the 40, sensational lifting work with his prosthetic, and a can-do attitude. Exactly the sort of player the Seahawks seem to find; they drafted his twin brother, Shaquill, out of UCF last year.Gri n “ nally hears his name NFL: DraftSEE HOCKEY, 2

Bucs receivers coach Skyler Fulton coached him in the Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, went to his pro day in Philadelphia and now has him joining a deep group of receivers. The Bucs had success last year in drafting an injured linebacker in LSUs Kendell Beckwith, and theyre hoping for the same in Cichy, who hasnt played since 2016. He missed the end of his junior year with a torn pectoral muscle, then missed all of last season with a knee injury. Im right where I want to be right now and Im confident going forward,Ž said Cichy, who had 60 tackles in seven games before his injury in 2016. Im really a relentless competitor ƒ I like to try and make it 100 miles per hour.Ž Those three join five Bucs draft picks who went in the first 94 selections, thanks to Licht trading down from No. 7 to No. 12, picking up two second-rounders, then trading down and moving up before he was done Friday. The headliners were Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea in the first round and USC running back Ronald Jones in the second, but the Bucs were able to add a pair of cornerbacks in North Carolinas M.J. Stewart and Auburns Carlton Davis, trading back up into the third to get guard Alex Cappa of Division II Humboldt State. As a whole, the eightplayer draft class will have a chance to fill significant roles on both sides of the ball as the Bucs work to bounce back from a 5-11 record last season. I was just talking with Dirk (Koetter), when we went into the first round, we thought we were going to have a hell of a lot more needs than we do right now, (more) holes on our roster,Ž Licht said. So we feel very good with the quality that we were able to get in the first two days, and today.Ž the call was changed the fol lowing inning and Price was tagged with two earned runs. The Rays added two more in the third when Ramos drove a 0-2 pitch from Price out to left after a double by C.J. Cron. The Red Sox loaded the bases with nobody out in the first and third but got just one run in each inning. Benintendi hit a leadoff double in the third, Hanley Ramirez singled and J.D. Martinez drew a walk to load the bases for Xander Bogaerts, who delivered an RBI single to left. That was all for Chirinos. Yarbrough prevented any further damage with a pair of strikeouts and a soft liner by Nunez to shortstop. Chirinos was charged with three runs and six hits. He walked two, struck out three and threw two wild pitches.Trainers roomRays: Ramos left after a single in the seventh. The Rays said it was a precautionary move because of tightness in his legs. Red Sox: RHP Steven Wright (knee surgery) was reinstated from the disabled list, and then placed on the restricted list so he can serve a 15-game suspension for violating Major League Baseballs domestic violence policy.Up nextRays: Manager Kevin Cash said he would name Sundays starter after Saturdays game.

They were better than us, and then our top guys started finishing their chances.Ž Bergeron also scored twice and had an assist on one of Nashs goals for the Bruins, who finished one point behind Tampa Bay for the Atlantic Division title, as well as the No. 1 seed in the East. Marchand had a goal and three assists, while Pastrnak finished with four assists in a dominating performance. A second goal by Marchand was waved off because of a crosschecking penalty on Pastrnak. You need your best players to be your best players, and clearly that happened tonight for us, Cassidy said. Dan Girardi also scored for the Lightning, who trailed by one goal entering the third period. Marchand and Bergeron hiked Bostons advantage to 5-2 before Jake DeBrusk added an empty-netter with 6:19 remaining. The Bruins had just 10 shots against Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy over the last two periods, but made the most of the limited opportunities. Game 2 is Monday night at Amalie Arena. The Lightning, in the conference semifinals for the third time in four years, remain confident. We have a lot of experience. Guys have been in this position before,Ž center Tyler Johnson said. Its one game. It doesnt matter if you lose a game 3-2 or 12-2. Its the same thing.Ž Rask won three of four starts against the Lightning during the regular season, with Tampa Bays lone victory coming in the final meeting. Pastrnak assisted on each of Bostons first three goals and added another on Bergerons third-period goal, giving him 12 helpers in eight playoff games. Theyre good. ... Theyve played together for a while and they know where to find each other,Ž Lightning coach Jon Cooper said of Bostons top line. They play both ends of the rink. Theyve played on Olympic teams, World Cup teams, and every time you look up and Canada is winning, usually Marchand or Bergeron had something to do with it,Ž Cooper added. Theyve done it for a long time.Ž Nash, meanwhile, got his second and third goals of the postseason, scoring on the power play at 17:11 of the opening period and 12:33 of the second to put the Bruins up 3-1. Sergachev countered on the power play, trimming Tampa Bays deficit to 3-2. We lost 6-2, so it doesnt matter how we feel about how we played,Ž Cooper said. Were going to wake up in the morning, somebody is going to look at the score and say Tampa is down 1-0. Is there stuff we can build off this game? No question. But they got six, and in the end we have to raise the level of our game to get back in this series.Ž NOTES: Vasilevskiy stopped 18 shots. ... When Rask lost the blade on his skate, play was allowed to continue because losing a blade is not considered a safety issue. ... The Bruins and Lightning are meeting in the playoffs for only the second time. The teams also met in the 2011 Eastern Conference Final, won by Boston in seven games. Six current Bruins „ Bergeron, Marchand, Rask, Zdeno Chara, David Krejci and Adam McQuaid were part of that team, which went on win the Stanley Cup.HOCKEYFrom Page 1 Staff ReportsThe Charlotte Stone Crabs have scored plenty of early runs this season which has typically lead to a victory.

The Sun / Sunday, April 29, 2018 SP Page 3By KRISTIE RIEKEN Associated PressHOUSTON „ Charlotte Hornets star Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was at home watching the World Series and marveling at a big hit by George Springer when he learned something about the Houston Astros star that impressed him even more than that play. That was a big moment in this atmosphere in Houston,Ž Kidd-Gilchrist said. Then I saw that he stutters and I was like: Oh man, he stutters?Ž It was an important discovery for Kidd-Gilchrist, who also stutters, and spurred him to reach out to the outfielder. The two connected with the help of Astros manager A.J. Hinch and developed a relationship during the last few months. Hes open. Im open about it, too,Ž KiddGilchrist said of their stuttering. Hes older than me and hes a guy that I look up to.Ž On Friday they spent time together at Minute Maid Park before Houstons game against Oakland. Kidd-Gilchrist took batting practice with the World Series MVP, and the two laughed and joked at the forwards struggles to make contact. Springer, who stuttered so severely as a child that he rarely talked to those outside of close famil y and friends, was humbled Kidd-Gilchrist reached out to him and was touched by his story. Its crazy. Its cool. I think its an honor,Ž he said. It just shows you that theres a lot of people in all different areas of life that experience it.Ž Springer is the spokesperson for The Stuttering Association for the Young and hosts a fundraiser each year to raise money for their camp for children who stutter. He often says if he can reach just one person then his work with the organization is worth it. He knows plenty of children have found inspiration in what hes overcome, but he was a bit surprised another professional athlete was so impressed by him. The goal is to impact somebody somewhere,Ž Springer said. And for me to get in touch with him and kids to see that there are people everywhere, it doesnt matter if you play professional baseball or youre in the NBA or youre in construction, were all humans and its good to not feel alone.Ž Kidd-Gilchrist agrees and feels a responsibility to tell his story to let kids who are dealing with the same issue know that they can get through it. Its important to me,Ž he said. I know its important to him to reach out to people who stutter ... it isnt just the both of us, its all of us around the world that stutter, old, young, male or female, its important to all of us who stutter.ŽBy Julian LindenThe Associated PressSYDNEY „ Peter Norman, the Australian sprinter who shared the podium with Americans Tommie Smith and John Carlos and backed their Black Power salutes at the 1968 Mexico City Games, was posthumously given his countrys highest Olympic award Saturday for his brave standŽ 50 years ago. The Australian Olympic Committee bestowed its Order of Merit in belated recognition of Normans role in one of the most powerful human rights protests in sports. This is an overdue award there is no doubt,Ž AOC President John Coates said. The respect for Peter and his actions is still enormous to this day. He believed in human rights throughout his life. We lost Peter in 2006 but we should never lose sight of his brave stand that day and further as a five-time national champion.Ž Norman won the silver medal in the 200 meters at the Mexico City Games and his time of 20.06 seconds remains an Australian national record. Smith set a thenworld record of 19.83 seconds to win the gold medal while Carlos took the bronze, but it was their civil rights protest at the medal presentation that linked all three men through the years. Smith and Carlos mounted the podium shoeless, representing black poverty in the United States, with each wearing a single black glove. When the The Star-Spangled BannerŽ played, they bowed their heads and raised their fists. Norman, a white Australian physical education teacher, wore a human rights badge on his shirt in support of the two Americans. He also suggested the idea that Smith and Carlos each wear one glove because they had only one pair between them. Smith and Carlos were expelled from the Olympics because of their protests and were subjected to death threats when they returned home. Norman was never selected to represent Australia again, and his role in the protest was sometimes overlooked. In 2005, a statue commemorating the protest was erected at San Jose State University, where Smith and Carlos were students. Normans place in the statue was left vacant, although the Australian said he fully supported the decision to be left out of the monument. When Norman died in 2006, Smith and Carlos traveled to Australia and were pallbearers at his funeral. He was a lone soldier in Australia,Ž Carlos said at the time. Many people in Australia didnt particularly understand. Why would that young white fella go over and stand with those black individuals?Ž Peter never flinched, he never turned his eye or his head,Ž Carlos said. When I looked into his eyes, I saw nothing but love.Ž The AOC has always denied punishing Norman, although the Australian federal government apologized to him in 2012 for failing to send him to the 1972 Munich Olympics even though he had qualified.Australian honored for protest at OlympicsBy Joseph WilsonThe Associated PressBARCELONA, Spain „ Andres Iniesta means so much more to Barcelona than the 30-plus titles he helped add to its trophy case. The Spaniard, who is leaving the club at the end of the season, was pure elegance with the ball, and a popular player off the field. As Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu put it, Andres is the son any father would love to have.Ž Lionel Messi has been the driving force that made Barcelona into one of the best teams to ever play the game. But more than any player at the Camp Nou in the last 15 years, Iniesta provided the human element that made him exemplify Barcelonas motto of being more than a club.Ž In an emotional news conference on Friday, Iniesta did not reveal what his next club will be, only saying it wont be in Europe. Iniesta, who turns 34 on May 11, decided it was time to go out on top after likely securing a domestic double. Wearing Barcelonas burgundy-and-blue, Iniesta scored in a 5-0 victory over Sevilla to claim a fourth consecutive Copa del Rey last weekend. That was his and Messis club record 31st title with Barcelona, and the team just needs to win one of its last five matches to clinch the Spanish league title. Iniestas departure after 16 trophy-rich seasons will leave Messi as the last link to the group of players that started Barcelonas incredible winning era with a Liga crown in 2005. Iniesta and Messi were rising talents on that team coached by Frank Rijkaard and featuring Ronaldinho and Samuel Etoo. Barcelona won the 2006 Champion League title, which started a golden era for Barcelona with Iniesta and Messi leading the way to three more Champions League titles and a collection of domestic trophies that displaced Real Madrid as Spains top team. For a club which prides itself on producing the worlds top playmakers and passers, there has been no one quite like Iniesta. Deceptively sleek with his dribbling skills and uncanny knack for a game-winning pass, Iniesta was a master at unlocking opponents best-laid defenses. He combined the smooth dribbling skills of Ronaldinho and the precision passing of former midfield partner Xavi Hernandez. While never a prolific goal-scorer, Iniesta has come through in the biggest moments for both club and country. Ask any Barcelona fan what their favorite goal is and more than likely Iniestas dramatic stoppage-time strike that stunned Chelsea in the 2009 Champions League will be mentioned. With Barcelona seconds from elimination, Iniestas laser-beam shot with the toe of his right boot kept Pep Guardiolas side on course to the European title. When asked by Spanish national television in February about that classic goal, Iniesta said it was as if destiny wanted the ball to go in.Ž Iniesta was also in the right place at the right time to score in extra time to give Spain the World Cup title in 2010 with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands. He also played a key part in Spain winning the 2008 and 2012 European Championships to complete an unprecedented run of dominance for Spain and its tiki-taka tactics modeled on Barcelonas ball-possession style. His thoughtful character was seen when Iniesta dedicated his World Cup winning goal to the late Dani Jarque, his friend and Espanyol defender who had died of a heart attack. This mix of grace and excellence earned him the respect of opposing fans when Barcelona was playing away from home. They regularly applauded him when he was substituted. Iniesta joined Barcelonas training academy at age 12 after leaving his village in southeastern Spain. He has become an unquestioned favorite of Barcelonas supporters, even with Catalans who sympathize with the regions secessionist movement. Iniesta never won the Ballon dOr for the worlds best player. He was second in voting behind Messi in 2010. France Football, the magazine behind the award, recognized that Iniesta had deserved to win in an editorial published this week by director Pascal Ferre entitled Sorry, Andres.Ž But true to his demeanor, Iniesta has never complained.

Springer and Kidd-Gilchrist bond over shared experienceBASEBALL: Astros GOLF: PGA TourAssociated PressAVONDALE, La. „ Kevin Kisner had another great day at TPC Louisiana, rolling in putts s eemingly from everywhere. Teammate Scott Brown wasnt having as much success, but a clutch birdie on the closing hole gave the duo a one-shot lead heading into the final round of the Zurich Classic. Kisner holed three birdie putts from 20 feet or more and teamed with Brown to shoot an 8-under 64 in better ball on Saturday. They topped a crowded leaderboard that featured 13 teams within four shots of the lead. It was a dogfight for us today,Ž Brown said. I felt like Kevin played great. I kind of left him high and dry a couple times.Ž But Brown came up big on the par-5 18th when his third shot from a greenside bunker settled within 2 feet. Kisner and Brown started the round one shot off the lead and made five birdies on the front nine. The back nine wasnt as smooth, with two bogeys mixed in with five more birdies, giving the team a threeday total of 20-under 196. We had a chance to probably run away a little bit and we just couldnt ever get two balls in good position on the back nine,Ž Kisner said. Still leading the golf tournament. Feel good. In the right position, where we need to go.Ž The duo lost on the fourth hole of a playoff to Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt last year at TPC Louisiana, the first for the Zurich as a team event. Theyll face plenty of challengers on Sunday, when the tournament returns to the more difficult alternateshot format. Tony Finau and Daniel Summerhays shot a bogey-free 63, and Michael Kim and Andrew Putnam teamed for a 66. Kisner, Scott Brown team for one-shot lead at ZurichBy John ZenorAssociated PressTALLADEGA, Ala. „ A different Busch will be Kevin Harvicks nearest competitor at Talladega Superspeedway „ at least at the start. Harvick will start on the pole Sunday at Talladega while he goes for his fourth win of the year, which would break a 3-3 deadlock with streaking Kyle Busch. Starting with him up front: Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kurt Busch. Even for oft-chaotic Talladega, drivers have said Sundays race seems more unpredictable than usual with questions about the cars handling. NASCAR changed the restrictor plates after Fridays practice laps in which Jamie McMurrays car flipped a number of times. The change is expected to sap some horsepower from the cars. Ive never really seen this much uncertainty going into a plate race before,Ž Kurt Busch said. So everybodys got their hands full. Handling will be at an all-time premium. And you have to make the right adjustments on the car. At the same time, you have to protect the car.Harvick eyeing 4th win of yearNASCAR: Talladega

(AP) „ Sam Darnold was only 2 years old when his grandfather passed away, so he never got to know the Marlboro Man. Dick Hammer left behind a legacy of larger-than-life tales, though, and the New York Jets newest quarterback has heard them all. Family gatherings have been filled with the stories of Hammers athletic accomplishments as a college basketball player and a U.S Olympian in volleyball, his bravery as a firefighter and his creative side as an actor. My mom always tells me how much I remind her of him,Ž Darnold said Friday during his introductory news conference as the No. 3 overall pick of the NFL draft at the Jets training facility. Darnolds mother Chris, sitting in the front row with her husband Mike and daughter Franki, wiped tears from her eyes as Sam mentioned his late grandfather. When Sam was really little, we used to tease him because we would say he got all the DNA because he could do anything,Ž said Chris Darnold, wearing a Jets cap. He was big like his dad, got his dads girth. He got my dads agility and athletic ability. My dad was the type of person that could pick up a game by just watching someone play. Sams a lot like that.Ž Hammer was 69 when he died in October 1999, just four months after Sams second birthday. He played basketball at USC and helped lead the Trojans to the 1954 Final Four. Hammer picked up volleyball after his hoops days were over and ended up making the United States 1964 Olympic volleyball team that competed in Tokyo. He was a captain in the L.A. County Fire Department and played Captain Dick Hammer „ yep, named after himself „ in the first season of the 1970s television drama Emergency!Ž Hammer also landed a gig as the cowboy hat-wearing Marlboro Man in the cigarette companys advertising campaigns, despite not being a regular smoker. It is that innate ability to pick up anything and excel at it that Darnolds mom has always seen in her son, who was also a terrific basketball player in high school. An example was when (Sam) played in a volleyball tournament with my daughter, who was playing in college (at Rhode Island) at the time and she was missing out on a partner for co-ed doubles,Ž Chris said. He was all like, Uh, sure, OK, Ill go play some volleyball. Were watching them play and they got to the playoffs and hes doing all these dinking serves and playing like hes been playing his whole life. That is a lot of what my Dad was like.Ž Dick Hammer would certainly think his grandson is a chip off the old block. And, Darnold now has a chance to create his own legacy. The former USC star quarterback from Capistrano Beach, California, played just two seasons for the Trojans, but showed enough eye-popping ability as a playmaking passer to be rated by many as the No. 1 player at his position heading into the draft. Darnold is now tasked with helping lift a franchise that has been seeking a savior since the glory days of Joe Namath nearly 50 years ago. The Jets have been to just one Super Bowl „ you know, the one Broadway Joe delivered after his guarantee in 1969. Thats a lot of pressure for a kid who wont even turn 21 until June, but Darnold is becoming fully aware of what hes getting into. Winning a Super Bowl is everyones goal entering a season, whether Im a backup or whether Im starting quarterback,Ž he said. Everyone on the team wants to win a Super Bowl. Thats the goal for everyone. Anything short of that is a failure, and were aware of that. Everyones aware of that. And whatever my role is, Im going to star in that role to work us toward that Super Bowl.Ž Darnold already has a prominent place in Jets history, being the highest-drafted quarterback by the team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Getting that phone call, it changed my life,Ž Darnold said. I know its going to change my life, and Im very confident here that were going to win some games, and I think Im going to be here for a long time.Ž Coach Todd Bowles said Thursday night after New York drafted Darnold that the team wont necessarily throw him into the fire, but also wont hold him back. That means the rookie could have a chance at starting if he can beat out veterans Josh McCown, the starter last year, and Teddy Bridgewater, whos still recovering from a knee injury that threatened his career nearly two years ago. Theres a ton of room for growth, and thats the thing Im really excited about,Ž Darnold said. Just being 20 years old, I know that theres a lot of room for growth, but Im also very confident in my ability to go out there and play. But that being said, Im going to do what the coaches ask me to do, and Im going to come in here and learn right away and just go about it that way.Ž NOTES: The Jets announced they released wide receiver-kick returner JoJo Natson, wide receiver Damoreea Stringfellow, offensive tackle Korren Kirven and punter Ben Turk.By ARNIE STAPLETON Associated PressENGLEWOOD, Colo. „ Detroit Lions linebacker Brandon Chubb sure was sweating, and not just because of the Texas heat. He didnt want to miss the moment his baby brother, North Carolina State pass rusher Bradley Chubb got drafted. But he also couldnt cut away early from the Lions voluntary minicamp Thursday because first impressions are important, too. So, Chubb knew hed have to cut it close, hop a helicopter and cross his fingers. He introduced himself to new Lions coach Matt Patricia at the start of the teams three-day minicamp Tuesday and asked him what time theyd be done Thursday so he could get to Dallas that night. I have to go to the draft,Ž Chubb said. Why is that important?Ž Patricia wondered. Well, my little brothers in it,Ž Chubb explained. Oh,Ž Patricia replied. Well, well be done at 12:30.Ž So, I knew from that conversation what needed to be done,Ž Chubb said Friday. Associated PressORCHARD PARK, N.Y. „ Offensive line depth and receiver remain two of the Buffalo Bills most pressing needs with five picks spread over the final four rounds of the NFL draft. Buffalo opens Saturday with the 21st pick in the fourth round and close with the second-to-last pick in the draft, 255th overall. Offensive line remains a need after center Eric Wood was diagnosed with a career-ending neck injury and left guard Richie Incognito retired. Another possibility if Buffalo adding running back depth behind 29-yeard-old starter LeSean McCoy and free-agent addition Chris Ivory. The Bills opened the draft making two splashes in trading up to select both Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen and Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds in the first round. Buffalo had one pick on Friday in choosing Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips at 96.By BOB BAUM Associated PressTEMPE, Ariz. „ He has a close connection with Aaron Rodgers and wants a Star Trek mind-meldŽ with his new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Hes still ticked that three quarterbacks were drafted ahead of him. Josh Rosen was introduced at a news conference Friday at Arizona Cardinals headquarters. Its heady stuff, he acknowledged, being anointed a teams franchise quarterback of the future. Its pretty daunting,Ž Rosen said. The biggest thing is knowing that I have careers on my back. I have families, I have kids, and if I dont play well and I dont pan out, people have to get new jobs. People get fired and things happen, so youve got a lot on your shoulders.Ž The biggest misperception hed like to clear up, he said, is that he lacks sufficient love for the game. Throughout the scouting process, you had to come up with answers to try and convince people you love the game and stuff,Ž he said. Im lucky now. I got picked. I can just show people. I can just come to work each day and show people over time. I dont have to answer. I can actually just produce the proof in the pudding.Ž The UCLA star somehow slipped to 10th in the draft. The Cardinals traded up five spots to get him at the quite reasonable price of Arizonas No. 15 pick in the first round as well as a thirdand fifth-round selection. He said Thursday night that he didnt know and didnt care why he slipped and was the fourth quarterback chosen. I was a little emotional last night,Ž Rosen said. I would actually say that Im not as angry that there were nine guys (chosen) ahead of me, just the three quarterbacks. Thats kind of what gets to me. So, there were three big mistakes ahead of me.Ž But he said he now sees it as a lucky break. This is an unbelievable team that I think is really, really primed and set to do some incredible things in the future,Ž Rosen said, and I think I just, very simply, lucked out.Ž He will wear his usual No. 3, the same as his predecessor, the nowretired Carson Palmer. Rosen will start out as backup to Sam Bradford and maybe Mike Glennon. It will be his first experience as a reserve. My goals for the year are to accomplish whatever coach McCoy sets out for me as a quarterback,Ž he said. Whatever he wants me to do, its team first. ... Im going to compete my butt off every single day, but then again, Im not going to be the guy that comes in and thinks hes the man from Day 1. Its a long process, and youve got to earn it.Ž Rosen said hes learning a lot from Rodgers. The two got to know each other because theyre represented by the same agency. Rodgers is executive producer of a video that featured rookies under contract to the agency preparing for the draft. It was really cool when he came down and mentored me a little bit,Ž Rosen said. The relationship actually went a lot further than I thought it would initially. I thought we were just kind of going to hang out for the cameras a little bit and talk and try to make it look more than it was. But he has reached out to me a lot. He has been awesome.Ž As Rosen explained it, I think the best word to describe him, and what I try to emulate is, hes a dude. Hes just the dude. When hes walking around the building or whatever hes doing, you just know hes that guy. When he steps into the huddle at a critical moment in a late-game (situation) at the end of the year, you know that hes stepping into that huddle and hes telling his guys hes going to go down and score a touchdown and that theyre all going to believe him, because hes that dude.Ž Rosen wants to be that dude, too.NFL: Draft J ets Darnold a lot like late Marlboro Man grandfatherNFL: DraftRosen comes to Arizona, wants to show how much he loves game AP PHOTOSam Darnold poses for photos after a news conference introducing him as the New York Jets selection from the first round of the NFL draft.
