A prominent sign along Harborview Road in Charlotte Harbor advertised a bright white, waterfront home with a two-car garage and a large entryway ”anked by sweeping pillars for just under $1 million. Some scienti“c studies have recently suggested that, due to sea level rise from global warming, waterfront homes throughout the country face discounts. So, will that pricey home sell at a bargain in the future along with thousands of other waterfront properties across coastal communities in Charlotte and Sarasota counties? A recent study published in Environmental Research Letters by a researcher from Harvard University at least claimed consumer preference may exist in favor of higher elevation properties.Ž The study, which was focused on Miami-Dade County, also said that lower elevation properties may appreciate less due to ”ooding concerns. And another study involving researchers from the Some studies suggest wate rfront discounts are imminentBy ANDREA PRAEGITZERSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY ANDREA PRAEGITZERA sign advertising harbor front new homes o Harborview Road in Charlotte Harbor. NASA ON RISING SEASThe seas of the Earth are rising, a direct result of a changing climate. Ocean temperatures are increasing, leading to ocean expansion. And as ice sheets and glaciers melt, they add more water. An armada of increasingly sophisticated instruments, deployed across the oceans, on polar ice and in orbit, reveals significant changes among globally interlocking factors that are driving sea levels higher. Yet the globally averaged trend toward rising sea levels masks deeper complexities. Regional effects cause sea levels to increase on some parts of the planet, decrease on others, and even to remain relatively flat in a few places, including, in recent decades, on the California coast.Ž„ SOURCE: NASA, https://sealevel. nasa.gov/ understanding-sea-level/ causes/overview BOTTOM LINEWhile research confirms waterfront homes will be endangered as sea levels rise, it could be decades before that happens and the prospect does not seem to have impacted home buyers „ especially in Charlotte and Sarasota counties, according to Realtors.RISING | 4Earlier this week, the AAA Auto Club urged bicycle safety, stating more and more bicyclists have been dying in crashes nationwide, citing a statistic from the National Highway Traf“c Safety Administration that 840 bicyclists died in 2016, making it the deadliest year on record since 1991. Locally and statewide, theres been a slight drop since 2016. Last year, 111 bicyclists died in crashes across Florida, compared to 140 in 2016, according to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. However, that still places Florida second in the nation for bicyclist deaths. Its kind of like a double-edged sword; we have some of the best weather and best biking compared to other states but with that in mind, youre going to have a higher quantity of fatalities,Ž said AAA Florida Public Affairs Director Matt Nasworthy. We should de“nitely be honing in on what makes those areas safer.Ž This month, DHSMV is conducting its Share the Road campaign to educate the public on bicycle and motorcycle safety on the roadways, with tips for both motor and non-motor vehicles. In Charlotte County, one bicyclist died last year, a decrease from four in 2016, and in Sarasota County, bicycle fatalities held steady at “ve deaths each year. Lt. Greg Bueno of the Florida Highway Patrol said the decrease statewide could be a result of more bike lanes, more bicycle safety education, and more conscientious drivers. Im sure its a combination of all of that,Ž he said. We hope that trend continues, and were going to continue sharing education with all motorists, so everyones on the same page and everyone can get to their destination safely.Ž Bueno said for bicycles, the big thing is to be visible, use hand signals when turning, wear a Florida second in nation for bike deathsBy ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITER BIKE | 5The president of Allegiant Airlines recently touted his $250 million economic impact on the city of Punta Gorda and Charlotte County. Wow. That “gure is amazing. No wonder Charlotte County is willing to gift Allegiant Airlines some taxpayer-owned waterfront property. Allegiant Airlines is not the only one hyping they create millions of dollars of economic impact.Ž It feels like every time someone has their hand out to get taxpayer money, they hire an expert to do an economic impact study. The economic bene“ts study then allows them to grab a handful of our money out of the taxpayer cookie jar. Allegiant Airlines $250 million economic impact claim got me to thinking. What if the Sun Newspaper used the same methodology? How many millions of dollars of taxpayer money might we be eligible for? Allegiant Airlines has about 150 paychecks they are responsible for in our area of Florida. The Sun Newspapers has close to 600. If Allegiant Airlines economic impact is $250 million, might not our newspapers economic impact be closer to $1 billion? Lets see if you agree with the logic of economic impact studies. Here is how economic impact studies come up with these crazy “gures. Studies like this assume that because Sun newspaper provides $1 billion economic impact DavidDUNNRANKINPRESIDENTDAVID | 5CALL US AT941-206-1000CHARLOTTE SUN Pulitzer Prize winner2 0 1 6 AN EDITION OF THE SUNVOL. 126 | NO. 126AMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILY Partly sunny with a t-stormHigh 86 Low 69$3.00 www.yoursun.comTodays weather: GOOD MORNING Sunday, May 6, 2018 NASA LAUNCHES SPACECRAFT TO MARS TO DIG DOWN DEEP A robotic geologist armed with a hammer and quake monitor rocketed toward Mars on Saturday, aiming to land on the red planet and explore its mysterious insides.

Polk Avenue, Arcadia NORTH PORT „ After residents expressed outrage that a cleared creek left tree limbs broken, vegetation trampled and caused erosion, the North Port City Commission wanted to see what they could do to stop this from happening again. In April, Commissioner Debbie McDowell received photos of the Myakkahatchee Creek cleared near Sylvania Avenue. In the photos, it shows a general destruction to the area and she placed an agenda item on its Thursday meeting so the commissioners could discuss what happened with staff. Public Works Director Julie Bellia stated staff had to clear the creek of debris to avoid ”ooding in the area. They could not use smaller machines, as they would not be able to reach what needed to be cut. Chuck Speake, Public Works operations manager, said 90 percent of what staff cleared out were invasive species such as Brazilian peppers and willows. While the commissioners and concerned residents did not express anger toward staff, they did want to set up some guidelines for how this could be prevented in the future. As far as staff goes, I dont blame the operators, I do blame the lack of planning that went into this because it really couldnt have been done at a worse place,Ž Bill Goetz said. What I want to see is staff own up to the mistakes and explain how these will not reoccur and I would be satis“ed with that because there is no way to “x what was done.Ž Bellia agreed with public commenters and said in the future more planning could be done. She added now a path is cleared, it should be easier to clear the creek in the future. I think its a balance, I think we need to work closely with the Parks and Rec department,Ž she said. And now we have the “rst and second section to where its maintainable. It probably hadnt been touched since 2002 with the last ”ood here. Its a balance; I think we can do it. Now we have a path to where (staff) needs it so we have to do the best we can.Ž There were some suggestions from commissioners to be more careful with the natural amenities, such as cutting trees into smaller sections before removing them. However, while City Manager Pete Lear repeatedly said he is not against that idea, he also reminded the commission taking more time takes more money. We would not get half the work done because it would be twice as long,Ž he said. No one is saying we cant do it another way „ but instead of costing $100,000 it would cost a million. You mentioned a balance but how much do you want to go from one side to another.Ž But McDowell said some of those costs would be worth it if it means protecting nature. It may be more costly upfront but it could have immense protection in the long run,Ž she said. I hope going forward things are a little more protected.Ž All four present commissioners stated they believe when an entire archaeological, historical and environmental reviews are done, it could also help with protection of North Ports amenities. I think we need more identi“cation, more pre-work, more planning, so we can make sure the best job was done before we go in and do the work,Ž Commissioner Jill Luke said. I think there needs to be a tightening where environmental, history „ some specialist needs to review the thing prior.Ž Email: lcoey@sun-herald.com North Port to rethink spring cleaningBy LAUREN COFFEY STAFF WRITER Community members visited the clearing of Myakkahatchee Creek in April and sent photos such as this to Commissioner Debbie McDowell.

Page 4 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 6, 2018 University of Colorado headlined Disaster on the Horizon: The price effect of sea level riseŽ said home buyers look to the distant horizon when bidding on coastal properties. We “nd average discounts of approximately 7 percent of the home value during our 2007-2016 sample period, with properties not projected to be inundated for almost a century experiencing more than a 5 percent discount,Ž that study stated. Neither study focused on Charlotte or Sarasota counties, though. And, not everyone agrees with the “ndings. I havent noticed any particular discounts,Ž said Rosemary Mahoney, Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Association of Realtors president. She noted the opposite has actually occurred as far as what people are paying for homes in a market showing mostly steady growth recently. Data from the Punta GordaPort Charlotte-North Port Association of Realtors shows that in February, during snowbird season, the year-to-date median sales price for homes was 10.5 percent higher than the prior year numbers at that time. Buyers are aware about environmental impacts to property, though, Mahoney said. They ask about past hurricane damage, ”ooding or beach erosion. However, she con“rmed that words like sea level riseŽ and global warmingŽ have not often been brought up by buyers who she has encountered. Its more just has this area ”ooded? How often has it ”ooded? Or, OK if the tide comes up, how badly has it affected the building?Ž Mahoney said. Those that want beachfront, want beachfront,Ž she said. Buyers are aware if theyre buying coastal property, there are inherent risks.Ž And Mahoney said some buyers are willing to pay dearlyŽ for what they want. Peter Rivera, owner and principal broker of REMAX Palm Realty that serves Charlotte and Sarasota counties, also agreed prices for waterfront property have been increasing and not experiencing discounts. Rivera said he knows of a handful of customers who are improving or expanding their waterfront holdings. And, Rivera con“rmed he also hasnt heard rising sea levels mentioned by buyers as a factor in where they want to purchase. I dont think that affects peoples desire to be on the water,Ž said Rivera. Such a reaction from Realtors came as no surprise to Harvards Jesse Keenan, who authored the study focused on Miami-Dade County. A Miami broker called the idea that prices are changing because of sea level rise fake newsŽ in a recent Miami Herald story highlighting Keenans study. That broker also noted prices for single family homes in Miami Beach were rising over recent years. It is not fake news,Ž said Keenan. This is peer reviewed science.Ž And he asserted that at least some brokers may not want to acknowledge the issue out of concern it will hurt their bottom line.Ž Meanwhile, Keenan said some Realtors in Florida have used sea level change as a competitive advantageŽ in attempts to market and sell listings located on higher ground. Jim Nolan of Punta Gordabased Nolan Family Insurance said he recently attended a conference involving re-insurance companies „ which is the insurance that insurance companies get „ where effects of rising temperatures was highlighted for the “rst time that he was aware of. Worldwide in 2017, insured losses from disasters were the highest ever, according to Swiss Re, a leading wholesale provider of reinsurance. Should reinsurance rates rise due to global warming, than that cost would be passed on to the consumer through homeowners insurance rates, according to Nolan. When people are interested in buying a home they often call insurers like Nolan, he said, to get a handle on what the total costs including insurance and taxes would be. But some homes that are older and on the water carry insurance rates that are so high, prospective buyers are shocked. When people are buying homes, theyre looking at the total costs with taxes and insurance and if its more expensive to insure these homes, than I think that could de“nitely be a factor,Ž said Nolan about home pricing. He also noted that could have an impact on where people choose to live, as insurance costs for inland homes can be thousands less annually than for waterfront. Meanwhile, Charlotte and Sarasota counties are acknowledging the issue of sea level rise through comprehensive planning. There are no speci“c actions or policies outlined, except that levels of service will take into account impacts from sea level rise,Ž said Brian Gleason, Charlotte County spokesperson. Meanwhile, Sarasota County is currently working on an internal assessment of its own facilities and infrastructure to determine what may be vulnerable to future sea level rise,Ž according to Lee-Hayes Byron, director of Sarasota County UF/IFAS Extension and Sustainability. Christopher Westley, director of the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast University, con“rmed he hasnt seen direct evidence in area housing markets that prices are being affected by sea level rise. Westley said he believes if sea level impact occurred, price adjustments would likely be slow and incremental. And, he pointed to the planned Allegiant Sunseeker Resort slated to unfold along the Charlotte Harbor waterfront soon. We have to assume that (sea level rise) has been a factor in their decision on whether or not to build there,Ž said Westley. And they are still going forward with it.Ž According to NASA, the seas of the earth are rising and that is a direct result of a changing climate. The question, according to the University of Colorados Ryan Lewis is how high will seas rise and how quickly?Ž Email: Apraegitzer@sun-herald.comRISINGFROM PAGE 1 SEA LEVEL TRENDSThe Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services has been measuring sea level for over 150 years, with tide stations of the National Water Level Observation Network operating on U.S. coasts. Changes in sea level, either a rise or fall, have been computed at 142 longterm water level stations using a minimum span of 30 years of observations at each location. These measurements have been averaged by month which removes the effect of higher frequency phenomena in order to compute an accurate linear sea level trend.

She was the youngest of “ve children born to Allen and Jesse (ne Good) Moore of Martinsville, Indiana. Bernice lived a full and vibrant life. She married John Stewart Knoy on June 29, 1946. Birdie, as she was fondly called by friends and family, was tireless in her love and support of her family. She was an avid gardener and birder, accomplished musician (cello), well read and a tireless advocate for education. She loved to travel, and to entertain. Birdie cherished all the moments of her life and the loved ones with whom she shared them, even as she began to forget them. She will be dearly missed. Birdie is survived by her four children, Jane Grant, John (Doris), Jim (Pat), and Marianne; as well as seven grandchildren; and “ve great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, John; brother, Allen; and sisters, Alice, Martha and Elizabeth. Services will be held graveside at 11 a.m., Saturday, June 2, 2018, at New South Park Cemetery in Martinsville, Indiana. The family asks that in lieu of ”owers, donations may be made to Tidewell Hospice at www.tidewellhospice.org.Henry Totah10/2/1928 … 4/24/2018 Henry Totah passed away on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at Bayfront Hospital in Port Charlotte, Florida. He was born on Oct. 2, 1928, in Miami, Florida, to the late Mary and Elias Totah. Henrys favorite sport was basketball, which he played in early childhood, then at Miami Senior High School, while at college and even into his military career. Henry was a very intelligent man. Education was important to him. He graduated from Miami Senior High in June 1946. Then went on to study at Purdue University. After serving two terms of service in the U.S. Army he continued his education at Miami University, graduating with a Bachelor Degree in Mathematics. Henry was a “reman in Miami while attending University of Miami. He then attended Fullerton College in California working on his Masters. He next worked for 20 years for the Navy Department in Norco, California, where he put his math skills to use as a mathematician at the Navy Weapons Center.

Gimskie, age 65, a long time resident of New Durham, New Hampshire, and more recent resident of Port Charlotte, Florida, passed away Friday, May 4, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. He was born July 18, 1952, in Framingham, Massachusetts. Allyn moved to New Durham with his wife Cindy and daughter Merrie in 1987. Allyn worked at Wayside, now Alton Circle store, where he was always quick to offer a smile or joke, in addition to holding a longtime position in the shoe industry. He enjoyed “shing, watching his beloved Red Sox and Patriots, and spending time with his loved ones. In later years he relocated to Florida, though his heart never left New Hampshire and the Lakes Region. He was known affectionately to his family as Papa Owl.Ž Allyn was a long time employee of the Charlotte Sun (SCMG) working in the production area for 15 years. He will be greatly missed. Allyn is survived by his wife of 41 years, Cindy; his sister Linda; brother Ralph; his daughter Merrie and husband Nick Marks; and his grandchildren Alex and Jack. In lieu of ”owers, donations may be made in Allyns memory to the American Cancer Society. The viewing is from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., with services at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, at the Punta Gorda Chapel of Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Home, 635 E. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda.

Generally, bicyclists should be on the roadway going with traf“c. The Share the Road campaign also extends to motorcycles. Statewide, 500 people died in motorcycle crashes last year, a small drop from 545 in 2016. In Charlotte County, motorcyclist deaths decreased from “ve to four, and in Sarasota County, fatalities went from 13 to 3. Bueno said data from across the state showed 47 percent of motorcyclists who died as a result of a crash were not wearing helmets approved by the Department of Transportation. We want to obviously strongly encourage the protection of anyones head, especially as a non-motor BIKEFROM PAGE 1 2016 BICYCLE CRASHESCOUNTY TOTAL INCAPACITATING FATALITIES INJURIESCharlotte* 52 9 4 Sarasota 170 46 5 Statewide 6,670 887 1402017 BICYCLE CRASHESCOUNTY TOTAL INCAPACITATING FATALITIES INJURIESCharlotte* 23 11 1 Sarasota 221 32 5 Statewide 6,519 829 111 *Numbers recorded by the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office differ slightly. 2016: 41 crashes, 4 fatalities. 2017: 31 crashes, 1 fatality. „ Source: DHSMV 2016 MOTORCYCLE CRASHESCOUNTY TOTAL INCAPACITATING FATALITIES INJURIESCharlotte 125 37 5 Sarasota 201 94 13 Statewide 10,333 2,511 5452017 MOTORCYCLE CRASHESCOUNTY TOTAL INCAPACITATING FATALITIES INJURIESCharlotte 90 17 4 Sarasota 177 56 3 Statewide 9,538 2,332 500 „ Source: DHSMVvehicle user,Ž he said. Wearing that DOT-approved helmet could be the difference between you being seriously injured or God-forbid killed in a motorcycle crash,Ž he said. Motor vehicle drivers should never attempt to share a lane with a motorcycle, Bueno said. Motorcycles are entitled to an entire lane, and vehicles should avoid following too closely, as motorcycles have the ability to stop more quickly than other vehicles. If youre not paying attention, youre lessening your reaction time to be able to stop before striking that motorcyclist,Ž he said. So it basically comes down this (...) we always want to be cognizant there are not just cars out there. There are motorcycles, bicyclists, children waiting at bus stops. It calls for everyone to be responsible any time theyre on the roadway and to be 100 percent aware of their surroundings.Ž Local law enforcement agencies will also be spreading awareness throughout the month. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ce will be conducting an enforcement operation beginning Monday. The North Port Police Department and the Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce plan to educate the public through social media outreach, as well as regular traf“c stops. We are always educating drivers during every traf“c stop and citizen interaction,Ž said SCSO Public Information Of“cer Kaitlyn Perez.Email: aeasker@sun-herald.com you have an employee and they spend money, other local businesses must hire people. And those people at the local business, then newly employed because of the “rst company, spend money which means even more local people must be hired. Its called an assumed multiplier effect. Lets see how the magical multiplier effect creates Allegiants $250 million economic impact. Allegiant Airlines has about 150 employees who work at the Punta Gorda airport. Lets use an average pay of lets say $50,000. Thats only $7.5 million economic impact, not $250 million. The Punta Gorda airport economic impact study suggests the Allegiant Airlines team is also partially responsible for the airport being able to employ another 200 employees, for a total of 350 employees at the airport. According to the Punta Gorda Airport economic impact study, those 350 airport employees are then responsible for creating another 2,250 jobs directly and another 1,070 jobs indirectly. Thats how, magically, Allegiant Airlines, with 150 local employees, can be credited with creating over 3,600 local jobs. In this case, implied in the Punta Gorda Airport economic impact study, every Allegiant Airline employee is responsible, directly and indirectly, for creating 20 additional jobs in the area „ thanks to the amazing magical multiplier effect. The Sun Newspapers has about 600 paychecks. According to the logic of economic impact studies, we are actually responsible for about 12,000 local jobs, with an economic impact every single year over $1 billion. Im wondering what kind of taxpayer funds we should be eligible for, in exchange for creating 12,000 jobs and a $1 billion annual economic impact. Of course, this logic is silly. But our governments use these economic studies, done by experts for hire, to justify giving away your money. In Sarasota County, the arts and cultural people claim they create $295 million of economic impact. When the state of Florida recently cut back taxpayer funding for the arts this year, one Sarasota arts person said, Its willfully ignorant. Im just disgusted. They have no respect for me or the theater.Ž I am not against the arts, or against Allegiant and the Punta Gorda airport, or against economic development groups. But giving away taxpayer money, by using the amazing multiplier effect in economic impact studies, just makes us trust our government decision-making process even less. Share your thoughts.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth V IEWPOINTMelania is classiest rst lady Too much disparity in our rich country Blue collar families need a lift up too Crawling from under bad news bus Suns credibility was undermined Dont assume, get out and vote Many questions about SunseekerEditor: To the gentleman (and I use that word lightly) who is so insensitive as to bring the son of the president into his political agenda, you should be ashamed of himself. All I can think is that possibly you were raised in a dysfunctional family with no moral compass. Leave the young boy alone. You must also not have the ability to not be able to recognize class and you must be blind if you dont think Melania is not the most classy and beautiful “rst lady that this country has had, Jackie Kennedy a close second.Tanya Shurmur Punta GordaEditor: From the beginning of our country, and from our great forefathers Washington and Jefferson, we Americans have been hypocrites. From the gitgo we said all men are created equallyŽ; No way! First of all, slaves were omitted until after the Civil War, and are still being discriminated against. And what about women who could not vote until the 1900s, and still are paid about 30 percent less than men. We constantly have more prisoners than any other country. And when a prisoner serves his time, he most likely will not be able to vote, and will not be able to get a good job. People of color always receive stiffer sentences, and almost always get less consideration for good jobs. Some Americans maintain that working for $5/hour is better than doing welfare, but you cannot rent a two-bedroom house for $10,080 a year. Growing up in Illinois in the 1950s, it was said that a black person had best not be in LaSalle after dark. And the Mexican “eld workers who harvested crops were furnished housing that I would not keep my dog in. It is not feasible that in the richest nation on earth, there should be the huge disparity of wealth distribution that we have. All people deserve the chance for the pursuit of happiness. Starting with healthcare for everyone, there are solutions. Lets admit that Canada and other countries have better healthcare than we do. There is no need to privatize everything for the bene“t of corporations.Don Skaggs Port CharlotteEditor: 60 MinutesŽ aired a segment April 29 on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation scholarship program for low income students. The laudable goal of the program is to get low income kids into college where they will earn a degree and with it the ability to earn more money and lift their families out of poverty. Some 20,000 students have bene“ted from the program and most used the opportunity wisely. Colleges are helping with the program by giving preferential admission to kids simply because of their economic status. Why wouldnt they? A Gates scholarship is money in the bank for a college as well as a guarantee of a high rate of completion. As is usually the case, middle class families and students suffer. To qualify for the program, family income must be below $65,000. Where is the advantage for a family with two blue collar workers who brings home $80,000 and pays all their own bills? Shouldnt it be weighted to include the social service bene“ts the poorer family receives? How many kids lost a rightfully earned acceptance in order to accommodate the poor kids? A four-year college degree costs much more than what some families bring in above the $65,000 threshold. What happens to total economic picture of the country if 20,000 poor kids get a degree and 20,000 others do not? I have no problem with programs that lift the poor out of poverty. I do have a problem when it is at the expense of middle America.Arnold Avery EnglewoodEditor: The front page of your Golf carts could spell trouble on the road.Ž . At “rst, you seemed to build up an industry that is important to our Englewood area. In reading the rest of the article seems that your staff only looked for the worst to bring out. Not sure of the guy who umped cargo vans into the LSV situation. We, at Thoroughbred Golf Carts, were not contacted once for our input. Being the leading LSV and street legal golf cart supplier, we have not had these terrible experiences. Just want to point out that with the proper equipment, as well as knowledge of laws, and proper operation, street legal carts are as safe in their own right. The deaths and destruction that you mention are totally human error. With proper maintenance, training and common sense, Thoroughbred has not seen any of these horri“c stats that are mentioned. The golf industry employs hundreds of great Englewood residents. This industry pays large amounts of taxes. Not news, just the gloom. Signed, crawling from under the bus.Lex T. Knight EnglewoodEditor: In the April 24 edition, the lead headline and purported news storyŽ criticized Governor Scott for running on term limits, saying it was too little too late. However, nowhere in the lead did the Sun admit that this was, in fact, an attack editorial, as it clearly was. Instead, it was run as a news story. This is not the sort of activity that engenders a belief in the honesty of the Suns news reporting. If the paper will twist the newsŽ in this manner to attack Governor Scott, what else will the paper do to attack those the paper dislikes or will do to support the agenda of the editorial staff? Hide bad actions by politicians favored by the paper? Fail Editor: I want my voice heard, my values endorsed and my vision for a proud and prosperous America assured. Women and men that support my beliefs will get my vote. Assuming politicians have our best interests at heart and we dont need to be involved in their selection and election is dim-witted. To wit: Many of us assumed an unprepared, amoral person could never be president. Therefore many didnt bother to vote. They say that to assume makes an assŽ out of uŽ and me.Ž And, it did. It is dangerous to assume the government will take care of our needs without our involvement. Staying informed, expressing our opinions, and voting is vital. We are sometimes duped by politicians pandering to our fears and making disingenuous promises of simple solutions to complex problems. But, unbiased news and rational thinking are available to all who desire it. America remains the proud nation it always was despite being trumped on, but we dare not fall asleep at the wheel again. We can return dignity, honesty and propriety to the White House by voting our hearts and minds in upcoming local and national elections, and by not making assumptions. We can make “rearms safety a function of government rather than the gun industry. We can remove Trumps unquali“ed and corrupt cronies from our government.Ž And, we can restore America to the golden rule of treating others with respect, rather than the Trumpism, those with the gold rule.Ž But, only if we vote.Harry T. Barnes Englewood to disclose financial ties to politicians? Sorry, but you have undermined your credibility with this action. Roger Strahan Port CharlotteEditor: Great thanks to Jane Hayse of Punta Gorda for her April 25 letter about Sunseeker Resort. I, and people I have talked with about this subject, want and need answers to her list of well-stated questions. There is great concern about impacts this development might have to traf“c, water supply and quality impact, transportation, the Charlotte Bay bridges, community services and the environment in general. Why have we not seen any solid information and explanations on these topics from the actual professionals whose job it is to oversee developments for Charlotte County? More importantly, when will we see information and explanations so we can rest assured someone is paying attention and taking responsibility for these most important issues and informing the citizens? Joy Maxeld Port CharlotteFreedom Swim can overcome July 4 obstaclesOUR POSITION: The Freedom Swim will go on. How that will happen depends on everyones ability to compromise and “nd a way to proceed safely. Its a grand tradition. Every Fourth of July since 1991, swimmers, then kayakers, and now just about anyone who can navigate the Peace River, has taken to the water to swim from the banks of Charlotte Harbor to Harpoon Harrys at Fishermens Village. People look forward to expressing their freedom with the mile-long swim each year. Its a time for friends and families to take on the challenge together. The founder of this newspaper, Derek DunnRankin, participated in the swim well into his 80s. Unfortunately, through the fault of no one in particular, this years swim is in danger of not happening. Or maybe the more accurate description is this years swim faces some challenges „ because everyone who has ever taken the plunge into those brackish waters is determined the swim will go on. The big issue is construction that will block the normal starting point on the sandy shoreline under the Gilchrist Bridge. Charlotte County is in the middle of building its Harborwalk that will run from the east side of U.S. 41 to the western shoreline. The entire area is labeled a construction zone and pedestrians „ and swimmers „ will be prohibited from accessing the shoreline until later this summer. The county is offering organizers of the swim a spot in Bayshore Live Oak Park as a starting point. But, there are caveats. Organizers „ and there really are none „ must take out a permit and insurance. The cost of both would be somewhere north of $2,000. The problem is twofold. First, no one is really in charge of the Freedom Swim „ even though Punta Gorda lawyer Michael Haymans is the go-to person and the guy who serves as unof“cial starter each Fourth of July. Haymans „ who is also trying to barter a compromise with the Punta Gorda City Council on the parking issues at Gilchrist Park „ has been cast into the role of negotiator, again. The lack of an of“cial sponsor means there is no bank account to pay for anything like a permit or insurance. The whole idea of the swim is an expression of freedom „ to do what you want, when you want. So the idea of forming a club or organization to oversee the event was never a thought „ nor should it be. Haymans is on record that no permit will be requested. He said he is still looking for a spotŽ that swimmers can use as a starting point. He said by imposing rules like permits and insurance, he fears the county is setting the stage to take over the event. Pretty soon, he fears, with insurance and so on people will be marking swimmers with numbers and the swim will digress from an expression of freedom to a bureaucratic boondoggle (our word, not his). The swim must go on. There are ways to save it. One is that a person, or group, or organization, could come forward and pay for the permit and insurance. Or maybe Haymans can “nd a loophole or a spotŽ on the Charlotte Harbor shore that swimmers can safely and legally use. Or, maybe, just maybe, everyone shows up and jumps in the water. After all, its all about freedom.

At the same time, we are increasingly interested in enhancing our overall health and well-being. To help individuals preserve memory and improve wellness, Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Renaissance Academy is offering two classes this month. Cindi Ryerson presents Getting the Most Out of Your BrainŽ from 10 to 11:30 a.m. May 9; and Annette Franks presents Radiant Health „ Mindful LivingŽ from 10 a.m. to noon May 17. Both will be held at the Renaissance Academy, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211 in Punta Gorda. Ryerson, who is a registered nurse and founder of Millennium House, an adult day-care facility in Bonita Springs, explores the brain and how to improve memory in her May 9 class. My target audience always has been the 55-and-older crowd because they tend to worry about their memories and brains,Ž Ryerson said. The lecture focuses on ways to preserve the memory, why memories are important, and the cognitive reserve, which is an extra supply of healthy brain cells that we build up through four pillars of brain maintenance: Physical exercise, a balanced diet, lowering stress and mentally stimulating brain activities. This cognitive reserve can carry you through life if you get caught up with diseases like dementia or Alzheimers.Ž Participants will also learn the visualization technique of look, snap, connectŽ as an aid for enhancing their memories. They will also complete a questionnaire that identi“es whether their personal learning style is visual, aural, logical, verbal or physical. Knowing and using your personal learning style helps you to learn better and capitalizes on that strength to help your memory, Ryerson said. Radiant Health „ Mindful LivingŽ on May 17 explores integrative mind-body practices that enhance our health and vitality, while optimizing our relationships and increasing self-awareness of our physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing, Franks said. We live in a world that has gotten so fast, so busy, so multitask oriented, that weve forgotten the art and value of pausing to live in the present moment,Ž said Franks, who is a corporate wellness coach, holistic health adviser and a licensed professional counselor. By failing to pause were not looking to what we need for our physical health and the health of our relationships. We need quality time with each other and ourselves.Ž This class is an opportunity to stop, pause and look at our own life and where we are without overall life balance,Ž Franks said. Participants will walk away with concrete ways to improve their health, wellness and longevity, as well as a package of handouts that walk them through the process of evaluating their current lifestyles and the changes they can make to enhance their overall well-being.Ž Using the question/ response handouts, participants assess for themselves whether theyre achieving balance in the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual dimensions of their lives. The self-assessments also identify which, if any, dimension might need enhancement. Although participants work through the handouts in class, they can keep the results private if they choose to, maintaining a safe space. They will also take a package of handouts home, Franks said.

Hes Brian Laczko, who formerly worked with the Goodman Theater in Chicago, was director of operations at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville, a director at Fords Theater in Washington, D.C., and executive director for 12 years of the Carson Center in Paducah, Kentucky. He said in an interview that the longtime lure of Southwest Florida and working with Charlotte Symphony maestro Raffaele Ponti brought him to Punta Gorda. Laczko, 65, announced his retirement last year from the Carson Center „ a multi-million dollar event, conference and concert center that seats 1,800 „ intent, he said, on retiring to Naples and a condo that he and his wife Susan have owned for several years. But the plans changed when Ken Barber, Charlotte Symphony board chairman, called him in April to discuss the open executive director position at the symphony. He interviewed and was soon hired by the CSO board of directors, beginning his new task, in lieu of retirement, last month. He acknowledged in his of“ce in Punta Gorda, that he had planned on a leisurely retirement of golf, drawing, painting and woodworking in Naples. But,Ž he smiled broadly, here I am.Ž He said the decision was an easy one, to be working again with Ponti, who is the music director of the Paducah Symphony, which played at the Carson Center, and for the opportunity to help advance the business of the Charlotte Symphony. Smiling again, he said he wanted to make it very clearŽ that Ponti will be in charge of the orchestra and he will be in charge of its business operations. Im here to support the maestro and the orchestra,Ž he said. Thats what its all about, making the orchestra bigger and better. The players are very committed. They just need the support to make it happen. To make it bigger and better than ever.Ž He said one of his “rst initiatives will be to bring a marketing and public relations component to the orchestra, which operates with just a staff of two „ himself and of“ce manager Crista Keesling. We have a strong story,Ž he said. We need to get it out there, focusing speci“cally on Charlotte County.Ž His advice to future patrons of the orchestra: You dont need to have a doctorate in music education to enjoy the orchestra. Just come try us. You will be back.Ž Board chair Barber said in an interview, I couldnt be more pleased with Brians experience and capability. He brings so much to the job, including the added bene“t or working with the maestro for many years.

Nicholas George Vuolo, 54, was the owner of A Plus Auto in Charlotte County. Between March 2015 and April 2017, he would charge sales tax to customers but did not “le it on his tax returns, according to a press release.

He received a sentence of two years in prison for the “rst two charges and one year and one day in prison for the violation of probation. Vuolo also was ordered to pay $66,817.26 to the Department of Revenue and still owes more than $20,000 in restitution and fees from his previous case, the press release stated.

They are the Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce K-9 Unit. Like their human partner, the countys six K9s must wear ballistic vests while on the job. Every “ve years, the vests must be replaced. On April 12, the sheriffs of“ce posted a photo on Facebook of K-9 Deputy Kevin Skau and his partner, Ando, wearing a ballistic vest from Canine Tactical. The caption mentioned SCSO needed to purchase “ve more vests for the remaining members of the K-9 Unit, at a cost of $1,700 apiece. Within minutes, community members offered to host fundraisers, write personal checks, and launch online campaigns to help the agency cover the costs,Ž said Kaitlyn Perez, SCSO spokeswoman. Judy Braham, president of Gulfcoast Marketing Consultants, LLC, with permission from the sheriffs of“ce, launched a GoFundMe page. In three and a half days, we were able to raise more than $4,010 in donations,Ž Braham said. Along with two private donors, the Nam Knights of Englewood quickly noti“ed the sheriffs of“ce they wanted to pledge funds to buy a vest. The Nam Knights MC, Southwest FL Chapter, whose post is at 251 Riverview Ave. in Englewood, rode their motorcycles to the sheriffs of“ce in Sarasota recently and met fellow donor Braham and Sgt. Troy Sasse and his K9 partner Indy, a 4-yearold Belgian Malinois. We saw there was a need so we “lled it,Ž said Nam Knights member Kevin Sullivan. We have open houses at our post. Our members and guests donated quickly and we were able to raise $1,700 in days.Ž Sasse said the ballistic vests are “tted and custom ordered and take several weeks to arrive. The old vests were 10 pounds,Ž said Sasse, who has been on the force for 15 years and worked with Indy for 3 years. The new vests we ordered for the dogs are 3 pounds. They are still as good, but much lighter. Ours are about 30 pounds.Ž This is one of those unique experiences that is hard to put into words, said Sheriff Tom Knight in a statement. To say I am surprised the community got this off the ground and made this happen would be inaccurate,Ž Knight wrote. This is the kind of community we live in; these are the kind of people we serve and we just feel humbled they took it upon themselves to make an investment in their sheriffs of“ce. This experience is something our K-9 Unit will remember for years to come.Ž Once the dogs are equipped with the vests, the sheriffs of“ce plans to invite donors for a special meet-and-greet with K-9 handlers and their partners, Perez said.Email: eallen@sun-herald.com Nam Knights buy a vest for K9By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR Sgt.

The first full week of May is National Be Kind to Animals Week.Ž Seepage 14.Question: Thanks for addressing the deeded public access issue. The property adjacent to mine is unoccupied. Im pretty sure that there is no deeded beach access associated with this home. But every time I have questioned individuals trespassing across it, they say they have deeded access. Yet they cannot provide us any (physical) proof of that. I was wondering if you knew where in the county I could “nd someone who has positive proof of having deeded access? What Department at the county can verify if there is in fact deeded access for those individuals? Anything you can do to shed light on this would be greatly appreciated. Answer: I called a top-notch title agent and a very experienced real estate attorney seeking answers to your questions. Neither had answers, but both were able to shed some light on the subject. Here is what they told me. The title agent suggested you are most likely to “nd proof of deeded beach access by examining the public-records maintained by the county recorders of“ce. She also suggested you examine the title work issued by the title company who processed the most recent sales transaction(s). And third, she suggested you examine the legal description of the property. You can access the legal description online via the county property appraisers website. The real estate attorney emphasized that the proper way to establish the existence and validity of real estate documents is to record them in the public records. This is typically done by the clerk of the court in the county where the property exists. The document then becomes part of the of“cial records of that county and are accessible to the public. The attorney also noted that deeded access takes different forms. For example, pedestrian-only access would preclude the use of golf carts. Or the access could be limited to owners only, thus precluding renters. So to answer your question, there is no single source to verify that a speci“c property is subject to, or includes entitlement to, deeded access across another property. But hopefully this gets you started in the right direction. Is 24-hour notice OK?Question: My listing agent discouraged me from requiring 24-hour notice to show my home. He said it would discourage some buyers and Realtors from viewing my home. What do you think? Answer: Your agent is correct. Heres a situation thats quite common. The Realtor is driving the buyers around the neighborhood to see the pre-selected homes that match the buyers criteria. The buyer spots a beautiful home with a for-sale sign. Its love at “rst sight. But its not on the buyers list because it does not match the buyers criteria. The buyer told her Realtor she wants a newer home, so the Realtor has limited the showings to homes built in 2011 or later. The Realtor calls the listing agent, explains the situation, and asks to show the home ASAP. This is something you want to make happen. Out of curiosity, I ran the numbers on all Charlotte County, single-family listings that sold in 2017. The median days-to-contract for those listings was just 42 days. The median for listings that required 24-hour notice was 46 days. Brett Slattery is broker/owner of Brett Slattery Realty llc in Charlotte County.

Page 16 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 6, 2018 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 2 Even when a seller and buyer agree on a price for a home, the deal can collapse if the property appraises for less than that price. For example, lets say a seller lists his house for $325,000, the buyer offers $275,000, but they settle on $300,000. A week before closing, the appraisal comes in at $265,000. Thats the maximum price for which the lender is willing to offer a mortgage. Whos going to make up the $35,000 difference? In this case, the seller has already come down on the price and doesnt want to lower it again. And the buyer may not have enough cash to cover the shortfall, or does not want to pay more for the house than its appraised value. As a result, the deal falls through. Read on for key tips on how to avoid a low home appraisal. And, once the deal does go through, Bankrate can help you get the best mortgage rate.What causes a low appraisalShort appraisals are common in declining housing markets because the lack of recent comparable home sales in the area, or comps,Ž make it hard for appraisers to determine the current market value of a property. When home sales slow down, good comps ageŽ quickly. Add foreclosures and short sales to the mix and appraisals can run all over the map. The Home Valuation Code of Conduct, or HVCC, which went into effect in May 2009, compounded the problem. The HVCC prohibits Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac lenders from having direct contact with appraisers. As a result, most lenders work through appraisal management companies, or AMCs, whose pool of residential appraisers includes those with limited training or little familiarity with the geographic area being appraised.Know how to protect yourselfYou can protect yourself from low appraisals. Here are some suggestions for buyers and sellers. If youre a buyer: € Tell your lender to “nd an appraiser who comes from your county, or perhaps a neighboring county. After all, youre paying for the appraisal. € Ask that the appraiser have a residential appraiser certi“cation and a professional designation. Examples include the Appraisal Institutes senior residential appraiser, or SRA, or member of the Appraisal Institute, or MAI, designations. € Meet the appraiser when he inspects the home, and share your knowledge of recent short sales and foreclosures that could skew the comps. You can speak with your appraiser; the prohibition applies only to your lender. If youre a seller: € Get an appraisal before you list a home. Search for a quali“ed appraiser in your area on the Appraisal Institute site. € Use the appraisal to set a realistic listing price for your home. € Give a copy of your prelisting appraisal to the buyers appraiser. € Question a low appraisal. Theres always a chance the appraiser or a supervisor will take into account new or overlooked information.How to avoid a low home appraisalBy JAY MACDONALDBANKRATE.COM Q: I live in a beautiful community that is well maintained by the board and its various committees. All is great, except for the roads „ they are ugly with oil marks and patched areas. I have asked after this, but it does not seem to be a priority of the board of directors. How do I get the board to address this issue? „ Philip A: Most people who want to get their boards attention try to bring up a new issue at the public board meeting. This is not a good idea and will most likely not work. A board meeting is a business meeting and should be run from an agenda of items known to all in advance so that the members and directors have ample time to research and consider the issues to be dealt with during that meeting. The common tactic of trying to embarrass or ambush the board at the meeting almost always back“res. Simply, the board meeting is not the time to introduce a new issue. The better method is to send your board a letter outlining your concern. Try to be detailed and propose solutions. Explain why you think it is an essential use of the communitys resources, bearing in mind that other residents may have differing priorities. Send the letter by certi“ed mail to ensure it gets the attention it deserves. If it still does not make the agenda, try again, or even better, get some neighbors to write in, too. Many voices will hold more sway than just one. Finally, if, after all of these efforts, the existing board does not share your priorities for the community, you should consider running for the board at the next election. When you are a board member, you are able to help set the agenda and get your ideas pushed through. At least, that is, if enough of your neighbors agree with you. Gary M.

The Sun /Sunday, May 6, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 17 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 3 Q: Assuming the same interest rate, is there any way in which a homeowner is better off having an FHA rather than a conventional mortgage? A: Having an FHA mortgage is potentially advantageous to a homeowner if she intends to sell her house, and if market interest rates are signi“cantly higher than they were when she borrowed the money to buy it. The advantage is that an FHA mortgage is assumable by a house purchaser who is quali“ed under FHA standards. This means that the below-market rate can be transferred to the buyer, with the bene“t shared between buyer and seller. In contrast, conventional mortgages today contain due-on-saleŽ clauses, which means that with a few exceptions, the loan balance must be repaid when the property is sold. Lenders may allow assumptions but only at the current market price. The dollar value of an assumed mortgage has three major components. One is the upfront saving, consisting of the points and other settlement costs that are avoided by the buyer. The second component is the present value of the difference in loan balance at the time the buyer repays the loan. The third component is the present value of the payment differences over the same period. This is not an easy calculation, but a spreadsheet on my website (Value of AssumptionsŽ) makes it easy. It does not take a large increase in rates to make an assumption attractive. For example, assume the home seller has a 3.5 percent mortgage with a $200,000 balance that has 200 months to go. If the best the buyer can “nd is 4.5 percent on a 30-year mortgage, and if the buyer sells after 60 months, the present value of the bene“t attached to assumption would exceed $10,000, plus the settlement costs avoided. I calculated this using the spreadsheet. The major limitation of an assumed mortgage is that the buyers down payment may be larger than is convenient or possible, depending on how much of the original loan balance has been paid off and how much the house has appreciated in value. In addition, the monthly payment may be beyond the buyers capacity because it must be calculated over the period remaining. The buyers who extract the most bene“t from assumptions are those who have the cash to pay the difference between the sale price and the balance of the old loan, and have the income necessary to carry the monthly payment over the shortened term. Any seller who allows assumption by a buyer without a written release of liability from the lender is looking for trouble. If the buyer defaults, the collection agency will come after the seller unless she can produce the written release. Even if the buyer pays, the seller without a release of liability may be unable to obtain another mortgage because of her continued liability on the old one. In the 1970s and 80s, conventional loans were also assumable, but lenders put a stop to it when they began to include due-on-sale clauses in all loan contracts. While due-on-sale clauses are not enforceable on non-market based transactions such as a transfer of ownership within a family through inheritance or divorce, they are enforceable on all market-based transactions. In some cases, buyers and sellers attempt to circumvent due on sale and keep an old conventional mortgage alive with a wrap aroundŽ mortgage. Without the knowledge of the lender, the seller takes a mortgage from the buyer, which may be for a larger amount than the balance of the old loan, and continues to pay the old mortgage out of the proceeds of the new one. The new mortgage wrapsŽ the old one. For example, S, who has a $140,000 mortgage on his home, sells his home to B for $200,000. B pays $10,000 down and borrows $190,000 on a new mortgage given by S. This mortgage wraps aroundŽ the existing $140,000 mortgage because the seller as the new lender continues to make the payments on the old mortgage. Collectively, buyer and seller bene“t by retaining the old low-rate mortgage. As interest rates rise, we will see more wrap-around mortgages because the bene“t from keeping old mortgages alive increases. This is a dangerous business, particularly to the seller, who has given up ownership of the house but retained liability for the mortgage. The seller is in deep trouble if the buyer fails to pay, or if the lender discovers the sale and demands immediate repayment of the original loan. Home sellers with FHA mortgages have no need for wrap-arounds. Jack Guttentag is professor emeritus of “nance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

If the idea seems preposterous, micro-units are not for you. But a growing number of real estate developers are banking on the micro-unit concept „ tiny, furnished apartments in amenity-laden buildings, located in hot neighborhoods „ to attract buyers and renters who want to live in Miami-Dades most popular neighborhoods but cant afford to pay market rates. They are also exploiting the malleability of the tiny-living concept „ which has been used in cities such as Seattle and New York to alleviate the affordable housing crunch „ and customizing it to suit their individual projects. They include: € The 70-unit 6080 Boutique Hotel at 6080 Collins Ave., due for completion in July, is a residential/hotel mixeduse project with turnkey residences ranging in size from 350 square foot studios to 900 square foot two-bedrooms (about a “fth of a professional basketball court). Prices range from $300,000 to $750,000. € Developer Property Management Group has launched a co-living operation, dubbed PMGx, that applies the micro-unit living concept to traditional apartments. The company is adopting a rent-by-bedroom (RBB) tactic at the 464 units in the X Miami tower (formerly known as Vice) at 300 Biscayne Blvd., just down the street from the Miami-Dade College Wolfson Campus. The RBB strategy is simple: You rent a single bedroom (with its own private bathroom) inside a fully-furnished unit and share living space with roommates that have been screened and vetted during the application process. Rents will range from $1,300 to $1,500. The building is due this summer. € X Las Olas, a two-tower project at 300 SW First Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, will add another 1,100 RBB units to the PMGx stockpile. The company plans to break ground on a third South Florida project the 700unit tower X Biscayne, at 400 Biscayne Blvd. in late 2018. € Wynwood 25, a partnership between The Related Group and East End Capital located at 227 NW 24th St., will deliver 289 rental apartments to the trendy neighborhood, where housing remains scarce. They will range in size from 400 to 1,200 square feet and go for $1,400 to $3,200 per month. The building was topped off last week and construction will be completed in early 2019. € Related has two other projects in the area: Wynwood 26, a joint venture with Block Capital Group at 51 NW 26th St., will add 172 apartments between 400 and 900 square feet, priced from $200,000 to $500,000. Singer Lenny Kravitz will serve as creative director of the buildings public areas and amenity spaces. The project broke ground on Monday. € VHouse Wynwood will duplicate the model of Relateds boutique-residential tower in Sao Paulo. The building, to be located at NW First Ave and 28th St., will partner Related with Metro 1 and deliver 192 condos between 416 and 900 square feet, with prices starting at $200,000. The project is in the development phase. € YOTELPAD Miami, a $150 million joint venture between Aria Development Group and the Kuwait-based AQARAT real estate company, is another micro-unit residential/ hotel project, this one in downtown Miami at 227 NE Second St. The building will be a 31-story tower offering 250 Yotel-branded hotel rooms (or cabins,Ž as the company calls them) and 215 condos ranging in size from 425 to 700 square feet. Prices will start in the $300,000 range and construction is scheduled to begin in late 2018. € Moishe Mana, the developer who owns large chunks of land in Wynwood and along Flagler Street in downtown Miami, is proceeding with his plan to build a 49-story tower at 200 North Miami Ave. that would include 328 micro-units between 400-500 square feet in size. It is our initiative to endorse the development of micro-units in the city of Miami,Ž said Mana, who has previously expressed a desire to turn into Miami into the Silicon Valley of South America. It is crucial to provide housing for millennials to ensure the growth of Miami as a global hub for industries and technology. Until today, the need to keep the millennials here was overlooked. Our project is not based on constructing one single condo building, because Miami has enough of those. Our concept is about building connectivity within a neighborhood.ŽMillennial appealAll of these developments take advantage of building and zoning codes that allow for higher density and lower parking requirements, which maximize land use. Although some “xed construction costs stay the same „ you still need a bathroom and a kitchen, for example „ the overall building costs are roughly 20 percent lower. Developers and lenders see Miami is growing up,Ž said Luis Flores, a partner at Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP, who works with developers around the U.S. The micro-unit model permits rentals and complies with zoning. For a New York lender, thats a no-brainer. The wrinkle Miami adds is that the units will also have beautiful design and “nishes.

The Sun /Sunday, May 6, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 19 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 5 fully furnished with beds, sofas, ”at-screen TVs „ even ”atware and bed linens. In other words, they are move-in ready „ you just need to bring your clothes „ which is what their residents want. According to a study by the Urban Land Institute Multifamily Housing Councils, the majority of micro-unit dwellers are young (under 30) professionals and “rsttime renters who havent accumulated many possessions and dont need as much living space. „ or, presumably, closets. According to the study, micro-unit users consider the small apartments as launch padsŽ for new careers and lives „ most move on to a larger place within two years „ and they are social animals who prefer to meet their friends at a restaurant or bar instead of hanging out at home. Most important is location. Nearly all the respondents in the study (97 percent) cited location as the most important priority in deciding to rent a micro-unit. The study also found that a minority of micro-unit users are older and use the small spaces as a part-time residence near relatives, in-town pied-a-terre or party pad. Philip Freedman, managing director of Compass Development Division, said the small sizes have not impeded sales at 6080 Collins Boutique Hotel, where 70 percent of the units have been pre-sold to a mix of South Florida residents and out-of-towners from the U.S. and nine foreign countries. The $45 million project is a joint venture between Buenos Airesbased Domus Group and the management company Eskape Collection, which will run the buildings hotel operations when it opens in July. Eskape currently operates another residential hotel property on Miami Beach, the Abae Hotel at 1215 West Ave. The local buyers have been people who live in Coral Gables or Pinecrest or Hialeah who want to have a new, easy weekend place on Miami Beach,Ž Freedman said. The other buyers are people who want to come here for the weekend or on vacation without dealing with a condo association or big maintenance fees. When people come to look at this type of unit, theyve already managed their own expectations. They know theyre not going to be large. Its a totally different mindset.Ž Using the traditional real estate benchmark of price per square foot, the micro-units at the 6080 project are nearly twice as expensive as a regular Miami Beach condo, costing $857 per square foot for a studio. The current median price per square foot in Miami Beach is $505, according to Realtor. com. But the overall price of the units is competitive with the median Miami Beach condo sales price of $430,000 and a steal at the luxury condo median sales price of $2.8 million, according to the 2018 “rst quarter Elliman Report released Thursday. The 6080 Collins building sits on a prime location, across the street from the ocean, and features all the perks of the luxe life other than space „ 24-hour valet parking, concierge, gym, rooftop pool, even maid service. The monthly maintenance fee is $1.27 per square foot, or $445 per month for the smallest units.Location mattersAnalysts say that micro-units dont make “nancial sense in suburban neighborhoods such as Kendall or Doral, where renters and buyers can still “nd good living spaces at an attainable price. Nor are they a good “t for older neighborhoods such as Little Havana or South Beach, where a lot of the older existing housing is already pint-sized. But for the booming urban cores of Miami, where much of the development over the last “ve years was geared at the luxury ($1 million and over) market, micro-units and downsized living are a good “t „ and another indication of the citys ongoing maturation from vacation mecca to a true urban center. According to the most recent Demographia International study, which compared median household incomes to median home prices in the third quarter of 2017, Miami is the sixth least-affordable major market in the U.S. for new starter housing of an acceptable qualityŽ located near industrial and commercial developments, requiring buyers to pay 6.5 times their annual income. Thats almost double the national median of 3.8x and higher than notoriously expensive markets such as Seattle (5.9x), New York (5.7x) and Boston (5.5x). Thats where tiny living and micro-units „ which are generally priced 20 percent lower than market rates „ come in. Miami residents love their big spaces, but there are all sorts of new things that are at play with micro-units,Ž said Jonathan Miller, president/CEO of the New York-based real estate consulting “rm Miller Samuel Inc. The old rules dont apply, because were in an exploratory period. Miamis trend toward new urbanism, where its all about walkability and niche neighborhoods, focuses on things that prior generations didnt focused on. Micro-units are aimed at people who are not being served by whats been built.Ž At the same time, Miller said, the real estate industry is awash with capital at lower interest rates, and when theres money available, developers dont stop building. When theres a new market to explore, you see this sort of boom,Ž Miller said. A parcel of land where a developer can get a much higher price per square foot becomes a draw. In valuation-speak, its highest and best use.Ž Some developers also see micro-units as an investment in the future. Carlos Rosso, president of condo development at The Related Group, points out the company is building of“ce towers adjacent to two of its residential developments in Wynwood: A 40,000-square-foot of“ce building next to Wynwood 25 and another 40,000-squarefoot of“ce space near VHouse. The developer is also adding nearly 70,000 square feet of retail spaces to the neighborhood that will be curated as if they were amenities „ coffeehouses, gyms, restaurants and barber shops. We have a vision for Wynwood,Ž Rosso said. Ten years from now, we want to be remembered as the developers who rede“ned living in Wynwood. We are doing it one building at a time, like you “lm a movie one frame at a time, and wont stop until our vision is achieved.ŽThe right timingThe arrival of micro-units comes at the right time for MiamiDade County, when many of the younger professionals living in Brickell and downtown are already used to smaller, shared living spaces. We are like any of the highly desirable international cities like San Francisco, New York and Hong Kong in the sense that we have increasing demand and very constricted supply,Ž said Gerard Yetning, executive vice president of Colliers International South Florida. We are literally an island between the ocean and the Everglades, and there are pockets in there that have desirable neighborhoods with a 24-hour lifestyle. People are already creating their own micro-units there by living with roommates.Ž Ryan Shear, a principal at the development “rm PMG, said the company intends to double the number of units in its RBB co-living PMGx operation to a total of 10,000 within “ve years. X Miami will be the third building in the division: The “rst two, X University Village and X Logan Square, have already proven the concept. Like most micro-units, the apartments come fully furnished. You sign a lease for a bedroom „ between $1,300-$1,500 a month, depending on the ”oor „ and if you end up not getting along with your roommates, you can transfer to another bedroom in the building. We have taken an old process „ “nding a roommate „ and modernized it,Ž Shear said. The lease application for X Miami went online “ve days ago and we already have a waiting list. And its drawing all kinds of people. The majority of our market is 25 year-olds, but were also seeing a lot of waitresses, service-sector people and folks who work downtown. They say theyre dying to live in a nice place downtown, but their budget is $1,400.ŽDOWNSIZEFROM PAGE 4 TNS PHOTOA view of the kitchen area of a unit at 6080 Collins Avenue in Miami, where the smallest apartments will be 350 square feet.DOWNSIZE | 6 Advertisement AdvertisementAbsolute Blinds Has A Window Treatment For YouAbsolute Blinds is the BEST place to go for all your window treatments, specializing in hardwood plantation shutters!

In December, the City of Miami approved an amendment to the Miami 21 building code that reduced the mandatory minimum size of micro-units in Transit Oriented Development (TOD) areas from 400 to 275 square feet. The amendment, which only applies to projects close to mass transit such as Metrorail, Metromover and the upcoming Brightline train service, also reduces or eliminates the requirement for parking spaces „ a construction cost that forces developers to raise their prices. On March 6, the Miami-Dade County Commission launched a 120-day study of micro-housing to encourage the efficient use of land by accommodating greater population density in a smaller area,Ž another indication of local government exploring possible solutions to the areas affordable housing crisis. But some developers argue micro-units not a viable long-term solution, because people cant live in such tiny quarters for long. Jay S. Jacobson, president and CEO of EDEN Multifamily, which specializes in boutique apartment buildings located in underserved neighborhoods, said he helped develop a micro-unit in Seattle in 2010, directly across the street from Amazon headquarters. But the project was a bust, with a turnover rate of 137 percent. The average turnover rate for a regular apartment building is between 55 and 57 percent per year. The average size of the units was 330 square feet, but once people realized they had no place to put their clothes or shoes or handbags, they were moving in and moving out on the same day,Ž Jacobson said. Conceptually, microunits are a great idea. But you have to put the human element into it. Dropping unit sizes to 400 or 500 square feet is workable. But when youre building 250-square-foot units, all youre building is hotel rooms. You cant solve affordability by squeezing people into those. Its not a lifestyle conducive to any human being in this country.Ž For now, though, the real estate industry is bullish on the microunits currently being developed in Miami, because they are filling a gap created by the postrecession emphasis on luxury development in Miami-Dades booming urban cores. The housing market is changing because of cost and supply,Ž said Steven Wernick, a land-use partner at Akerman LLC. Theres going to be new types of housing product, and there are a number of trends and public policy objectives that are part of the conversation with micro-units. Some people immediately think all apartments are going to become microunits, but thats not the case. We are seeing a few projects come out of the ground that are incorporating them. Were going to keep exploring the concept project by project.ŽDOWNSIZEFROM PAGE 5 TNS PHOTOSOn April 12, after two years of construction, project manager Sheila Lorenzo, left, president Carlos Rosso, center, and construction manager Javier Cabarrocas stand in front of Wynwood 25, a microunit building that is scheduled to top o later this summer and will be comprised entirely of microunit apartments.

The Sun /Sunday, May 6, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 21 OUR TOWN SUNCOAST HOMES 7 On Saturday, Eagle Scout hopeful and 10th-grader Lucas Blanchette assembled over 100 supply-“lled backpacks to donate to the Department of Children and Families, blowing their original goal out of the water. In “ve local counties, alone, over 2,500 kids are in foster care. When moving, these children are only given a trash bag and “ve minutes to pack. In the rush to grab clothes, toys and keepsakes, simple necessities and toiletries are often overlooked. Blanchette hopes to resolve this by providing everything from toothpaste to pens and pencils to the children in need. A lot of kids dont have bags for school either; they end up using the trash bag for all their school supplies,Ž said Lucass dad, Victor. This way, we can give them all the personal hygiene products but we can also give them a new backpack.Ž All of the products „ which the scout estimated to total over $400 „ were purchased and donated by friends, family and fellow volunteers. For Lucas, the project also carries a lot of weight. As part of the passage into Eagle Scouts, members must design and execute a project that bene“ts their community, whether local, national or global. This is one of his “nal steps and it must be approved by the troop committee. Its quite a lengthy process, he has to earn 21 badges „ 13 of which are Eagle-speci“c and more strenuous in terms of “tness or personal management „ and he has to “ll out a form and get all the appropriate signatures,Ž said Victor. Currently, Lucas is a Life Scout, the level below Eagle. Ive been a scout for nine or 10 years. It takes about a year to move up a level because you have to stay in each one for at least six months,Ž said Lucas, who decided to start the Scouts after seeing a poster at school. Each scout dedicates a signi“cant amount of time and effort to the troop, not only to bene“t their communities but to improve themselves as individuals, as well. About 19 people showed up to help today and theyre all either scouts or the families of scouts,Ž said Victor. Were going to be done way earlier than we thought.Ž The scout volunteers represented a variety of levels, from elementary-aged boys to high-schoolers. The younger ones really look up to the older boys. They can see whats at the end, it motivates them,Ž said John MacDonald, a member of the troop committee and grandfather of a prospective Eagle Scout, himself. The Scouts BSA „ a recent name change „ uses projects like Lucass to encourage members to continue to be there for one another. They all help out because they know it will be their turn someday,Ž said Victor. And it seems the population of community service-driven youth will only continue to grow. Lucass troop, Troop 351, for instance has been around for at least 15 years but has always had a relatively low scout number. There were only four a year ago and now we have 15. Were also expecting seven more once they move up a level,Ž said MacDonald. With this rapidly expanding enrollment, local areas will continue to see projects that improve daily life „ Lucass project will impact at least “ve neighborhoods „ and a new generation will be shaped to strive for the betterment of mankind.

At opposite ends of Port Charlotte, Melissa White and Shermel Hargrove seem to have found the perfect places to live their dreams.Pulling a bar out of a hatMelissa Smiths warm drawl will tell you, even before she does, that she was born in Nashville „ though she and the rest of her family have been part of Charlotte County and Englewood for 25 years. After diverse careers as a “re“ghter, paramedic and prison guard, Smith was sidelined by a traumatic accident that might have broken a weaker woman. Its been a long haul,Ž she said, but I “nally decided to do something different.Ž Her something differentŽ is pretty much the Florida dream. Shed always wanted to have her own bar, got tired of working for everybody else and is giving barkeeping a shot. Smith has lent the former Cape Haze Consignment shop a lively new lease on life as The White Rabbit Saloon. Shes been renting since August, but replumbing and Hurricane Irma delayed the bar even more than Alice in WonderlandsŽ chronically late bunny. In fact, the place has a completely different namesake, to honor a family memory. Smith recalls many trips to visit her grandmother, when she and her dad would stop at Jack Daniels distillery. The distillerys tasting room was called The White Rabbit Saloon in homage to a century-old Lynchburg, Tennessee, bar where Mr. Jack himself had sipped with friends. Open since March, Smiths White Rabbit is already holding karaoke a few nights a week and will participate in bene“ts like Kiwanis Shoes for Kids and poker runs as soon as the next one roars through. I like doing anything I can for the homeless, veterans, kids and animals,Ž said Smith. She and best friend Elaine Barna who tends bar, have already attracted a cast of chummy regulars, all of them tickled to have a bar in the neighborhood. Jeff and Terri Cromwell of Rotonda Lakes said, We always used to say this would make the perfect bar.Ž Smiths next project should make it even more perfect. Shes building a back deck on the little blue bar, with a tiki and live music from all the local musicians she knows. It already feels like the place has been there forever. The White Rabbit Saloon (941-623-5925), 8282 Wiltshire Drive, near Ephesus Mediterranean Grill, is pouring wine and beer Tuesday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Sunday and Monday to 8:45 p.m. Dreams can come true, from gridiron to kitchenThe Hargrove name has been heard a lot around the Cultural Center of Charlotte County in the context of helping young athletes dreams come true. Port Charlotte High star graduate Anthony Hargrove New Orleans Saints Super Bowl XLIV Champion and inspirational speaker, has held fundraisers there on behalf of his familys Rosa Lee Hargrove Foundation Anthonys cousin Shermel Hargrove was heavily involved in the foundation, helping organize events such as Powder Puff for Charity, which brought out over 100 female football players in support of breast cancer research and held its prom at the Cultural Center. Established to honor Anthonys mother, the nonpro“t Hargrove Foundation started the Charlotte County Reign semi-pro team to provide opportunities for older players and continues to focus on the advancement of youth through sports. After her sister, Rosa Lees, death, Anthonys aunt, a Port Charlotte mother of three, didnt hesitate to take in Anthony and his two siblings from New York, to make hers a family of six children. Sports always kept the Hargrove kids out of trouble. The boys played for Port Charlottes Pop Warner Bandits and, in high school, the Pirates. Super Bowl XLIV and the Hargrove Foundation became the rest of the story. Shermel played for the Bandits, Pirates and Reign, and currently coaches daughters Laylah and Lilliauna in Daughters at Play youth basketball. But he had dreams beyond sports. I got addicted to making happiness through food,Ž he said. After graduating from the Johnson & Wales culinary program, he worked his way up at Punta Gordas Sheraton Four Points and Laishley Crab House, and helped open two local Culvers. Once I had the opportunity to make my own food, I just loved watching peoples faces when they took that “rst bite,Ž he said. It warmed my heart. And you really know youre doing it when you can make 300 people happy.Ž Now, as executive chef/ manager of the Cultural Center kitchen, serving its 7,100-square-foot Conference Center and renovated Beaches Caf he can do exactly that. Im trying to change the culture, use fresh foods and bring a different vibe to Beaches Caf,Ž said Shermel. Not everybody in the demographic that comes here can afford the Punta Gorda Isles life, but if I can bring it to them for a discounted price and have them feeling for a few hours that theyre at the beach somewhere, enjoying great cuisine, thats what Im here for.Ž Beaches Caf at the Cultural Center ($), 941625-4175, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte, is open Monday to Saturday 8 to 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Send restaurant and bar news and recommendations to columnist Sue Wade at suewade47@aol. com.

SueWADECOLUMNISTTHE SCENE The “rst full week of May is National Be Kind to Animals Week.Ž It is actually the nations oldest celebrated week, originated in 1915 by the American Humane Association. The humane organizations intent was to encourage love and compassion for all animals. It is nice to know that, even 100 plus years ago, the importance of being compassionate was valued enough to dedicate a week to honor it. In 1952, Be Kind to Animals WeekŽ received the of“cial endorsements of both the U.S. and Canadian governments. And, in 1990, celebrating its 75th anniversary, Congress passed a resolution declaring it to be honored during the “rst full week of May. Today it remains a week when humane societies commemorate the role which animals play in our lives and in society. We promote ways to respect them and treat them humanely, while encouraging others to do the same. Did you know that there are also more than 100 days, weeks, and months, each year, dedicated to celebrating animals and what they mean to us? Some bring to light important messages in animal sheltering, care, protection, and welfare, while many are more fun and light-hearted. Shelters promote Adopt a Cat Month, Adopt a Dog Month, Adopt a Senior Pet Month, Spay/Neuter Awareness Month and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. We are also reminded that other little creatures are in need of homes by dedicating months to the adoption of rescued birds, rabbits and guinea pigs. There are awareness months for medical needs, such as Pet Dental Health, Pet Cancer Awareness and Pet Diabetes. Serious issues are addressed with Microchip Your Pet Month, Train Your Dog Month, Pet Theft Awareness Month, Dog Fight Awareness Day and Animal Cruelty/Human Violence Awareness Week. When is the last time you remembered to celebrate Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day, If Pets Had Thumbs Day, Answer Your Cats Question Day, and Work Like a Dog Day? Be Kind to Animals Week is the granddaddy of them all. In my opinion it is also the most meaningful. It is a building block toward a humane and compassionate society. This is a formula that should hold true, not for just one week, but for all 52 weeks of the year. Phil Snyder is the executive director of the Suncoast Humane Society. He has more than 40 years of experience in animal care, control and welfare, including 15 years with the Humane Society of the United States.

DanMEARNSCOLUMNIST Health & HopeThose are the guiding words of Lili Hrabchak, who responded to recent columns about the Canadian hospital crisis with her own story. Lili and her husband, Todd, are Canadian snowbirds who have owned a home in Rotonda West since 1990. Todd is 83, Lili is 69. In 2013, Todd underwent emergency quintuple bypass surgery at Peace River Regional Medical Center (which became Bayfront Health Port Charlotte a year later). Six days later, while in still in the hospital, he suffered a cerebellar stroke that left him with mobility and speech de“cits and vascular dementia. Lili has been his full-time caregiver ever since. Weve been able to continue enjoying our Florida home during the winter months, though for a shorter duration than before the stroke,Ž Lili wrote in an email. This past season, we arrived near the end of November with a return date in the “rst week of April. Of course, I had purchased supplemental insurance to cover the costs of any emergencies during our four months there. Unfortunately, Todd had a setback toward the end of our season. Because of his instability when walking, he bumped his shin on his Rollator (walker). The injury resulted in cellulitis. From the start of this, I had kept Global Allianz Assistance, the out-ofcountry insurance company, informed.Ž One week on a penicillin-based antibiotic had no positive effect, and Lili watched Todds shin worsen for two more days before taking him to the emergency room at another local hospital. He was prescribed a sulpha-based antibiotic, but by dinner time that same day, he became visibly ill. He was agitated, almost deranged, and he lost the ability to Always fight when you are rightMEARNS | 4Jane Warren was about to toss her third ringer. But before she celebrated her achievement in horseshoes, the 92-year-old Port Charlotte resident paused for a moment. If I get it, it will be the first time in my life Ive gotten three ringers,Ž she said. This is fun.Ž Warren was among about 16 seniors taking part in two activities on a recent Thursday at Chelsea Place Senior Care, the new adult day care center at 3626 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte. Chelsea Place is a couple doors down from Pops Barber Shop off Easy Street on the northbound side of 41. Warren has been coming on average three times a week since the place opened in October. I love everything about it…the people, the activities,Ž she said. The people who work here are wonderful.Ž Chelsea Place-named after owner Kris Chanas wife-is kind of a drop-in day care.

Monthly memberships are available as a discounted rate. They can be here one day a week or five days a week, it doesnt matter,Ž said Deborah Spear, director of Chelsea Place. On this particular Thursday, Janes side of the room played horseshoes; the other side was engaged in volleyball with a big beach ball. Other activities include arts and crafts, ladder golf, dart ball, trivia, bowling, gardening and woodworking.

When chronic, stress can have long-lasting negative eects on a persons overall health, potentiall y contributing to high blood pressure and weakening suerers immune systems thereby making them more vulnerable to a host of ailments.No one is immune to stress. When chronic, stress can have long-lasting negative effects on a persons overall health, potentially contributing to high blood pressure and weakening sufferers immune systems, thereby making them more vulnerable to a host of ailments. Stress may be most often associated with adults, but teenagers are no strangers to stress. In the 2014 Stress in AmericaTM survey from the American Psychological Association, teens reported that their stress levels during the school year far exceeded what they believed to be healthy. In fact, teens reported stress levels during the school year (5.8 on a 10-point scale) actually exceeded adults average reported stress levels. In addition to the pressures of school, teens must contend with social pressures. Balancing the two can be dif“cult, but the APA offers the following tips to teenagers looking to keep their stress levels in check. € Embrace physical activity. The APA notes that being physically active is one of the most effective ways to combat stress. Teens are urged to “nd activities they enjoy. For example, non-athletes need not try out for the baseball team or another organized sport simply because physical activity is an effective way to reduce stress. Teens are more likely to have fun and relieve stress when participating in a physical activity they enjoy, especially when such activities include their friends. € Dont overlook the importance of sleep. The National Sleep Foundation notes that teens need between eight and 10 hours of sleep per night to function best. But the Stress in America survey found that teens sleep an average of just 7.4 hours on school nights. Operating on insuf“cient sleep can compound existing stress, so teens who are not getting enough rest should make a concerted effort to get more sleep each night. € Schedule time for fun. The APA recommends that teenagers not overbook their schedules, leaving little time to enjoy themselves. While its important to focus on school, teens also should schedule time to have fun, during which they should attempt to avoid worrying How teens can cope with stress Provided by MCCTEENS | 2 Stress affects people from all walks of life, and the causes of stress are as varied as the people it af”icts. In its 2017 Stress in America survey, the American Psychological Association found that the three most common sources of stress were the future of the nation (63 percent), money (62 percent) and work (61 percent). According to the National Institute of Mental Health, routine stress that becomes chronic can result in a host of negative side effects. Such stress can suppress the immune system, disrupt digestion and have an adverse effect on sleep. But men and women who feel stressed at the end of each day need not resign themselves to sleepless nights and/or weakened immune systems. A proactive approach to alleviating stress during the day can help men and women reduce their stress levels and avoid the negative side effects associated with chronic stress. € Walk away. The APA notes that taking a break from a stressor is one of a handful of healthy techniques that research has indicated is a successful way to reduce stress, both in the shortand long-term. If a project at work is proving especially stressful, step away for a short period of time to do something else, whether its to go for a brief walk or converse with a coworker about something unrelated to the project. Avoiding the stress entirely, especially if its a work project or a bill that must be paid, is not the answer. But a short break from the stressor and thinking about it can provide a new perspective and time to calm down. € Meditate. When stressed out, men and women should not discount the potential bene“ts of meditation. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University examined more than 19,000 meditation studies, ultimately concluding that mindful meditation can ease stresses like anxiety, depression and pain. The APA notes that such meditation has been found to reap immediate bene“ts, potentially helping people who can “nd time to meditate during the day to prevent their stress from accumulating throughout a hectic workday. € Find time to exercise. The APA notes that research continues to support the notion that exercise is as bene“cial to the mind as it Healthy ways to relieve stress throughout the day Provided by MCCSTRESS | 2 Mental Illness Awareness Feeling Fit PORT CHARLOTTE € PUNTA GORDA € NORTH PORT € ENGLEWOOD € ARCADIA SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2018 A WEEKLY SUN PUBLICATION WWW.FEELINGFIT.COM

The APA notes that stress is more easily handled when those coping with it welcome the assistance of others. Teens can speak about their stress with their parents, teachers or other trusted adults, many of whom likely dealt with similar stress when they were teens. Such adults may even share how they manage their own stress, which can be useful to teens. Teens deal with stress every day. In an effort to manage such stress, teens can embrace various strategies. More information about how teens can manage stress is available at www.apa.org. TEENSFROM PAGE 1is to the body. Exercising several days per week is especially bene“cial to mind and body, but even 20-minute exercise sessions, including a walk around the grounds of an of“ce complex or a quick swim during a lunch break, in the midst of stressful days can help people combat stress for several hours afterward. Delegate more during the day. Work is the third-leading source of stress among Americans. Men and women who feel overworked may bene“t by delegating more tasks during their days or simply stepping back and taking on less work. The potential effects on your career of taking on less work will likely pale in comparison to the toll chronic stress, which can contribute to heart disease and stroke, takes on your body. Stress is a part of daily life for many people. But there are several simple and quick ways for stressed out men and women to reduce their stress during the day.STRESSFROM PAGE 1 FEELING FIT 2 Transplanted livers change the pro“le of blood cells in the recipients, reducing the potential for organ rejection, Mayo Clinic research shows. The “ndings are published in Kidney International. For decades, transplant experts have observed that liver transplant recipients often need less antirejection medication, known as immunosuppressive drugs, than recipients of other solid organs. Similarly, when patients receive a multiple-organ transplant that includes the liver along with any other organ, they need less immunosuppressive medication and have less incidence of rejection even if they are highly sensitive to cellular bad actors, known as antigens, from the donor organs. The Mayo Clinic research explains why. This study shows that the liver transplant itself regulates the hosts immune responses. Compared to the other organs, the liver is immunologically a very active organ, so it is capable of regulating the immune responses against itself, said lead author Timucin Taner, M.D., Ph.D., a transplant surgeon at Mayo Clinic. When patients undergo a dual kidney-liver transplant, the liver has a protective effect on the kidney, the study found. Researchers compared the blood samples of organ recipients a year after a kidney transplant, liver transplant or kidney-liver transplant. It found that patients who received a liver and kidney at the same time, or a liver alone, had fewer of the cells that leap into action to defend the body from an invader known as killer cells or T cells „ compared with people who had a kidney transplant alone. While the T cells of the liver transplant recipients reacted to the donor organ cells weakly, their reaction to other antigens was preserved. The research helps pave the way for ongoing studies on the transplanted livers unique properties. The hope is that one day researchers will identify how the liver regulates the immune response and to mimic that to help patients receiving other types of transplants scale back their need for anti-rejection drugs. Immuno suppression drugs are a necessary but dif“cult aspect of post-transplant care. Without it, the transplant would not be successful because the body would almost immediately reject the donor organ. But immunosuppression itself causes increased risk for infection, cancer and other issues. Future therapies may provide ways to target immune protection to the donated organ, and minimize the risks of immunosuppression for the patients.Transplanted livers help body defend against organ rejection, study findsby MAYO CLINICCancer support groupFawcett Memorial Hospital, an HCA af“liate, now offers a cancer support group for cancer patients, their families and caregivers. The group meets the last Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Research shows that social support has bene“ts for cancer patients, those recovering from treatment and their family and loved ones by reducing anxiety and stress, emotional distress and depression, fatigue and the experience of pain while improving mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control. In addition, having a supportive social network can help with recovery and adjusting to life after treatment. The support group allows those experiencing a cancer diagnosis to cope with the emotional aspects by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges while allowing people to learn from others facing similar situations. Cancer patients and their family members are encouraged to attend. Active participation is not required, listeners are welcome.

The Sun /Sunday, May 6, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 31 As mentioned in part one of this article, inversion exercises such as the headstand, and the inversion concept itself, have always been an integral part of the system of yoga. As a matter of fact, Alexander the Great reached India in the 4th century BCE. One of his companion 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). For many years it was commonly believed that the headstand (Sirshasana) possessed the ability to enhance ones beauty and to keep one looking much younger than his/her real age. Today, we know that assumption to be true. Inverted positions such as the headstand and its many variations (including the vast number of inversion machines available to the public) help to increase blood flow to the uppermost region of the body. This is a good thing, for blood rich in oxygen and important nutrients will now get to the brain, eyes, hair and other parts that are, quite often, somewhat deprived. It should be kept in mind that securing the benefits of inversion training can be difficult for some. For others, it could be quite dangerous. As a rule, if you suffer from a weak or injured neck, have high blood pressure, possess a heart condition, have an eye disease such as glaucoma or if you are pregnant, you should get permission your your doctor before attempting inversion training. Also, using inversion machines to address back (spinal) pain or injuries, without first assessing the condition of the area of concern, is not wise. Check with your physician before you do something that might worsen your existing condition. A number of inversion positions exist for you to use as you carry out your inversion training. Three such positions (ranging from simple to complex) are: (A) the seated forward bend of Fusion One, (B) the standing forward bend and (C) the headstand. These positions should be carried out cautiously. For additional information on Inversion Training, visit the Cultural Center of Charlotte Countys Fitness Center at 2280 Aaron St,, Port Charlotte. You may also call 941625-4175, ext. 263.Inversion training: Part 2By GREGORY WHYTETHE CULTURAL CENTER OF CHARLOTTE COUNTYS FITNESS CENTER PHOTO PROVIDEDA number of inversion positions exist for you to use as you carry out your inversion training.

These positions should be carried out cautiously. stand up,Ž Lili recalled. Through a sleepless night, I tended him. He was up every 15 minutes to urinate, without really needing to. His body was feverishly hot. At 5 a.m., I called for an ambulance.Ž Todd underwent a procedure called debridement which involves removing dead, damaged, or infected tissue. Afterward, attending physicians thought Todd could be discharged at any time, although Lili said he was in a weakened state from the infection, lack of mobility and heavy antibiotic treatment. It would have been impossible to bring him home under these circumstances,Ž Lili said. He could not stand, let alone walk, and I am not strong enough to lift him.Ž Lili wanted to transport Todd back to Toronto via air ambulance, but Global Allianz representatives repeatedly told her that no hospital beds were available in Toronto. This went on day after day, sometimes more than once each day,Ž said Lili. It was maddening and frustrating.Ž Lili took pen to paper, writing to everyone and anyoneŽ she thought might be able to get Todd a room, including the leader of the Ontario New Democratic Party, Andrea Horwath, a member of the provincial parliament and Minister of Health for the province of Ontario. Lili also shared her story on the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. website, which resulted in her being interviewed by telephone by a CBC reporter for a story that aired on March 20. Guess what?Ž Lili said. That evening I received a phone call from Global Allianz and was informed that Todd would be ”own home by air ambulance the next day. I stayed up all night trying to close up the house, arrange for our car to be driven back to Toronto, giving away all the refrigerator contents, and attending to the myriad jobs I would have done in a week of closing up.Ž In Canada, Todd went from St. Josephs Hospital to Providence Healthcare, a Toronto rehabilitation facility. Strings were pulled, I was told,Ž Lili said. Am I a VIP, a millionaire, a celebrity, a relative of some bigshot in government or at St. Josephs Hospital? No. Im just an ordinary person who believes in justice and in fighting for what is right. Do not accept phony roadblocks tossed your way by insurance companies in your attempt to return home. Write letters. Get action.Ž Lili will offer her fighting spirit assistanceŽ to others, who can contact her via email at lilihrha@aol. com. Unfortunately, Todds condition continued to worsen and he was put on life support in the ICU of yet another hospital in April. As of May 1, he was out of immediate danger and moved out of ICU, but his prognosis is grim. It is a bit of a miracle, and I am happy to have him awhile longer,Ž Lili said. I doubt if hell ever be home.Ž Lili apprised the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario on Todds ordeal. Its of little good to Todd now,Ž she said, but it might benefit others.Ž Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

The Sun /Sunday, May 6, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 33 Wanted: A million people willing to share their DNA and 10 years of health habits, big and small, for science. On Sunday, the U.S. government will open nationwide enrollment for an ambitious experiment: If they can build a large enough database comparing the genetics, lifestyles and environments of people from all walks of life, researchers hope to learn why some escape illness and others dont, and better customize ways to prevent and treat disease. A national adventure that is going to transform medical care,Ž is how Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, describes his agencys All of Us Research Program. Congress has authorized $1.45 billion over 10 years for the project. It all hinges on whether enough people around the country will sign up, either online or through participating health centers. Theres already interest: More than 25,000 people got early entry to the project over the past year through an invitation-only pilot test run by participating universities and health providers.WHY STUDY SO MANY?Most of todays medical care is based on what happened to the average person in short studies of a few hundred or thousand patients with a speci“c health condition. And most people who volunteer for those studies are white, leaving questions about the best care for people of different races. One-size-“ts-all is far from an optimal strategy,Ž Collins said Tuesday in announcing enrollment for All of Us. The project involves precision medicine,Ž using traits that make us unique to forecast and treat disease. Learning enough to individualize care requires studying a massive number of participants: The healthy and not-so-healthy, young and old, rural and urban, blue-collar and white-collar „ and people of all races and ethnicities. For now, participants must be at least 18. Next year, the study will open to children, too. While there are other big biobanksŽ of genetic data from at least 100,000 people, the NIH project aims to be the largest and most diverse of its kind. At least half of the participants must be from groups traditionally under-represented in medical research, Collins stressed.GENES ARENT THE WHOLE STORYSure, what genes you harbor can raise your risk for various diseases. But other factors can increase or reduce some genetic risks. So “rst volunteers will share electronic health records and blood samples, and answer periodic questionnaires about their diet, sleep, environmental exposures and other lifestyle factors. They might wear “tness trackers and other sensors. And later this year theyll start undergoing genetic testing, initially to look for so-called variantsŽ in DNA that affect disease risk, similar to what some private companies now sell, Collins said. Fully mapping the genetic code is too pricey now for a million people, but that more comprehensive approach eventually will be used with some participants, too. Among the “rst lessons Collins hopes to learn is about resilience: Why do some people stay healthy despite smoking or pollution or poor nutrition? We have no idea how those people escape those odds,Ž he said.LEARN YOUR RESULTSUnlike with most medical studies, participants can choose to see their own test results and share them with their physician long before the study reaches any big-picture conclusions. A caution: There are still many questions about how best to use the results of genetic tests. Still, we will try to help their doctors sort through what it means,Ž Collins said. One result that might bring a quick bene“t: Genetic variants can signal who is prone to side effects from more than 100 drugs, information that could be used to prescribe a safer drug if only their doctors knew, Collins added.PROTECTING PRIVACYThe privacy of DNA databases made headlines last week when investigators used a free genealogy website to track down a suspected California serial killer. Thats pretty different than the security under which medical DNA must be handled. NIH said it has taken as many steps as possible to safeguard against would-be hackers. Volunteers medical data is stripped of identifying information and replaced with a code. Only scientists meeting speci“c security requirements will be cleared to study the data.

While that joy is unrivaled, women dealing with postpartum depression may “nd their initial weeks or months of motherhood are not how they imagined they would be prior to giving birth. Women suffering from postpartum depression, a mood disorder that affects women after childbirth, often deal with extreme feelings of sadness that interfere with their ability to care for themselves, their families and their new babies. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, there is no single cause of postpartum depression, which is likely the result of a combination of factors, some of which are physical and others that are emotional. The NIMH points out that postpartum depression does not result from something a mother does or does not do, but may be traced to hormonal changes in a womans body that occur after giving birth. After childbirth, a womans estrogen and progesterone levels quickly drop, potentially triggering mood swings. When coupled with the inability to get adequate rest that many women experience after childbirth, these hormonal changes can contribute to symptoms of postpartum depression. Recognizing postpartum depression is not always so simple. For example, many women experience feelings of exhaustion after giving birth, but that does not mean they are suffering from postpartum depression. The following are some of the more common symptoms of postpartum depression, courtesy of the NIMH. € Feeling sad, hopeless, empty, or overwhelmed € Crying more often than usual or for no apparent reason € Worrying or feeling overly anxious € Feeling moody, irritable or restless € Oversleeping or being unable to sleep even when her baby is asleep € Having trouble concentrating, remembering details and making decisions € Experiencing anger or rage € Losing interest in activities that are usually enjoyable € Suffering from physical aches and pains, including frequent headaches, stomach problems and muscle pain € Eating too little or too much € Withdrawing from or avoiding friends and family € Having trouble bonding or forming an emotional attachment with her baby € Persistently doubting her ability to care for her baby € Thinking about harming herself or her baby While those are common symptoms of postpartum depression, women and their families should recognize that not all womens experiences with postpartum depression will be similar. Only healthcare providers can diagnose postpartum depression, and women or their loved ones who suspect the disorder might be affecting them or their loved one should consult a physician right away.

The Sun /Sunday, May 6, 2018 www.yoursun.com E/N/C Page 35 3 For a lot of people, it feels easier to “nd a new job when youve still got your old one. The research bears this out: In one study, employed people who are actively hunting for a job get more than half of the job offers on the table, versus unemployed workers who receive only 16% of job offers. Whats more, the offers were better for employed people. When youre unemployed it seems so unfair that more jobs are going to people who already have a job, and you wonder how you can achieve the same magic that employed workers experience. When youre out of work and feeling out of luck, try these strategies to buoy your job quest.Keep it positiveWhen youre dealing with rejection„or simply non-response„for an extended period, it can be hard to keep your chin up. But drooping like the only person who hasnt been asked to dance wont do you any favors in interviews. Changing your mindset can help. View this process not as an endless job hunt but as an opportunity to “nd the best “t for yourself. Knowing your individual selling points is huge,Ž says Jessica Hernandez, president and CEO of Great Resumes Fast. Its going to help you present yourself in the best light to each employer and know whats not a good “t for you.Ž Not only does that lend you some self-assurance in interviews, but it gives you the con“dence to say No thanks when its not the greatest offer. You dont have to just take whatever comes by,Ž Hernandez says. You can be selective, and those rejections dont deal quite as bad of a blow.ŽVolunteerKeep your skills sharp by putting them to good use for a local nonpro“t. For me, as a recruiter, Ive reached out to places like Catholic Charities or places that do resume reviews,Ž says Mary Warriner, a career coach in Niagara Falls, New York. Find something in your niche.Ž It may also be possible to pick up temp work or consulting gigs in your “eld. A lot of times these lead to permanent positions,Ž says Karen Tucker, owner of online interview coaching “rm InterviewOne. Either way, your activities give you something to discuss in the same way youd talk about a job youre doing. It makes you seem active and involved. And its great networking, too,Ž Warriner says.Work on your weaknessInterviewers love to ask questions about your ”aws: Whats your biggest weakness?Ž or What skill could you most improve upon?Ž Whatever your answer, heres your chance to solve the issue. Maybe theres a technical skill that you feel you need to improve on,Ž Warriner says. Take advantage of having more free time. That mindset shift of, Right now my job is to “nd a job, but Im also improving my skills and keeping myself current and relevant,Ž Warriner says. It helps with that mindset of being unemployed.ŽGet some helpIf youve been at it for a while and youre not seeing results, it may be time to call in a professional. Sending out resumes and getting radio silence? Consider getting a resume review. Getting interviews but no offers? Get some interview coaching. I think it helps to have an objective outside viewpoint,Ž Tucker says. This is especially important if the position you left was one you held for years. The way you communicate may be a habit that doesnt play as well outside your old company. Often you just dont know what youre actually saying or how its being takenƒ or you dont have the right skills anymore.Ž Tucker says.Keep networkingIts more important than ever that you stay in touch with people in your “eld„ but its not about snif“ng out job openings.

Page 36 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 6, 2018 WASHINGTON „ A low unemployment rate and the spreading legalization of marijuana have led many businesses to rethink their drug testing policies for the “rst time in decades. A small but increasing number are simply no longer testing for pot. For small businesses, however, how to handle these challenges may be a tougher call than for bigger corporations. There is a bewildering patchwork of state laws regarding medical and recreational marijuana use. And its still illegal under federal law. Yet smaller companies dont have extensive HR and legal departments to help them sort through it all. There is a lot of con”ict there, and many employers, they just dont know what to do,Ž said Kathryn Russo, a lawyer at Melville, New York-based “rm Jackson Lewis. Recreational marijuana use is legal in nine states plus Washington, D.C., and medical marijuana is legal in 29 states. Here are some questions small businesses need to consider when deciding on what drug testing policies to follow:Is it a federally regulated position, or safety-sensitive?Employment lawyers say these cases are the easy ones. If your business is regulated by the federal Department of Transportation or is a defense contractor, you are likely legally required to drug test for all drugs illegal at the federal level, including marijuana. Similarly, if a job raises safety concerns „ such as a forklift driver, an operator of heavy factory equipment, or a meat slicer „ its in the best interests of the employer to still test for pot, even if it is legal in your state.Dont discriminateIn states where medical marijuana is legal, small businesses increasingly risk running into legal trouble if they deny a job to someone who has obtained a medical marijuana prescription. Until last year, courts typically deferred to employers who didnt want to hire marijuana users, regardless of state law. Its still illegal under federal law, after all. But three court cases in the past year have sided with employees, forcing companies in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island to reinstate workers with medical marijuana cards who were “red, or whose job offers were rescinded, because they tested positive. In roughly a dozen states, medical marijuana users are protected to some degree from employment discrimination, Russo said. Yet the state laws around the issue are all different,Ž she said. In Arizona and Pennsylvania, for example, state law explicitly allows employers to bar medical pot users from safetysensitive positions, Russo said. Other states dont have clear rules.What about workers comp?Some companies may receive discounts on their workers compensation insurance premiums if they conduct drug tests. If an employer is thinking about stopping testing, they should “nd out whether they would lose that discount. Michael Clarkson, head of the drug testing practice at Ogletree Deakins, recommends small companies check in with their insurance brokers before making a “nal decision.Keep an eye on the White HouseIn January, Attorney General Jeff Sessions revoked a policy from the Obama administration that had discouraged federal prosecutors from pursuing marijuana cases in states where the drug is legal. That move suggested the Trump administration would crack down on marijuana users and caused even greater confusion among employers. Last month, Trump promised Colorado Senator Cory Gardner, a Republican, that the federal government wouldnt target his states marijuana industry. The state was one of the first to legalize recreational pot when it did so in 2014. Still, its not clear to most employment lawyers where exactly the administration stands. Your guess is as good as mine where the federal government is,Ž Clarkson said.Small businesses grapple with maze of conflicting pot lawsBy CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITER WASHINGTON „ FPI Management, a property company in California, wants to hire dozens of people. Factories from New Hampshire to Michigan need workers. Hotels in Las Vegas are desperate to “ll jobs. Those employers and many others are quietly taking what once would have been a radical step: Theyre dropping marijuana from the drug tests they require of prospective employees. Marijuana testing „ a “xture at large American employers for at least 30 years „ excludes too many potential workers, experts say, at a time when “lling jobs is more challenging than its been in nearly two decades. It has come out of nowhere,Ž said Michael Clarkson, head of the drug testing practice at Ogletree Deakins, a law “rm. I have heard from lots of clients things like, I cant staff the third shift and test for marijuana.Ž Though still in its early stages, the shift away from marijuana testing appears likely to accelerate. More states are legalizing cannabis for recreational use; Michigan could become the 10th state to do so in November. Missouri appears on track to become the 30th state to allow medical pot use. And medical marijuana users in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island have won lawsuits in the past year against companies that rescinded job offers or “red workers because of positive tests for cannabis. Before last year, courts had always ruled in favor of employers. The Trump administration also may be softening its resistance to legal marijuana. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta suggested at a congressional hearing last month that employers should take a step backŽ on drug testing. We have all these Americans that are looking to work,Ž Acosta said. Are we aligning our ... drug testing policies with whats right for the workforce?Ž There is no de“nitive data on how many companies conduct drug tests, though the Society of Human Resources Management found in a survey that 57 percent do so. Nor is there any recent data on how many have dropped marijuana from mandatory drug testing. But interviews with hiring executives, employment lawyers and agencies that help employers “ll jobs indicate that dropping marijuana testing is among the steps more companies are taking to expand their pool of applicants to “ll a nearrecord level of openings. Businesses are hiring more people without high school diplomas, for example, to the point where the unemployment rate for non-high school graduates has sunk more than a full percentage point in the past year to 5.5 percent. Thats the steepest such drop for any educational group over that time. On Friday, the government is expected to report another robust jobs report for April. Excluding marijuana from testing marks the “rst major shift in workplace drug policies since employers began regularly screening applicants in the late 1980s. They did so after a federal law required that government contractors maintain drug-free workplaces. Many private businesses adopted their own mandatory drug testing of applicants. Most businesses that have dropped marijuana tests continue to screen for cocaine, opiates, heroin and other drugs. But James Reidy, an employment lawyer in New Hampshire, says companies are thinking harder about the types of jobs that should realistically require marijuana tests. If a manufacturing worker, for instance, isnt driving a forklift or operating industrial machinery, employers may deem a marijuana test unnecessary. Employers are saying, We have a thin labor pool, Reidy said.  So are we going to test and exclude a whole group of people? Or can we assume some risks, as long as theyre not impaired at work?Ž Yet many companies are reluctant to acknowledge publicly that theyve dropped marijuana testing. This is going to become the new dont ask, dont tell,Ž Reidy said. In most states that have legalized marijuana, like Colorado, businesses can still, if they wish, “re workers who test positive. On the other hand, Maine, which also legalized the drug, became the “rst state to bar companies from “ring or refusing to hire someone for using marijuana outside work. Companies in laborintensive industries „ hoteliers and home health care providers and employers with many warehouse and assembly jobs „ are most likely to drop marijuana testing. By contrast, businesses that contract with the government or that are in regulated industries, like air travel, or that have safety concerns involving machinery, are continuing marijuana tests, employment lawyers say. Federal regulations require the testing of pilots, train operators and other key transportation workers. Dropping marijuana testing is more common among employers in the nine states, along with the District of Columbia, that have legalized pot for recreational use. An additional 20 states allow marijuana for medical use only. But historically low unemployment is driving change even where pot remains illegal. After the Drug-Free Workplace Act was enacted in 1988, amid concerns about cocaine use, drug testing spread to most large companies. All Fortune 500 companies now engage in some form of drug testing, according to Barry Sample, a senior director at Quest Diagnostics, one of the largest testing “rms. In Denver, in a state with just 3 percent unemployment, 10 percent of employers that screen for drugs had dropped marijuana as of 2016, according to a survey by the Employers Council, which provides corporate legal and human resources services. Its because unemployment is virtually non-existentŽ in Colorado, said Curtis Graves, a lawyer at the council. People cannot afford to take a hard line against off-duty marijuana usage if they want to hire.ŽMore businesses are mellowing out over hiring pot smokersBy CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITER People stand outside after shopping at the Essence cannabis dispensary in Las Vegas.

Page 38 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 6, 2018 WASHINGTON „ American businesses added 204,000 new workers last month, another sign of strength in the U.S. labor market and economy. Payroll processor ADP said Wednesday that hiring was strong across numerous industries, led by professional and business services, health and education and restaurants and hotels. The ADP survey has shown monthly job growth of 200,000 or more for six straight months. Businesses are aggressively adding to payrolls,Ž says Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics, which prepares the ADP report. The “gures come two days before the government releases its monthly employment “gures. Economists forecast that Fridays of“cial report will show that employers added a solid 190,000 jobs in April, according to a survey by data provider FactSet. ADP compiles hiring data from millions of companies that are clients of its payroll services. Its “gures frequently diverge from the governments report. A month ago, the government said private employers added 102,000 jobs in March, much lower than ADPs initial March “gure of 241,000, which was revised down to 228,000. The governments measure of unemployment is at a 17-year low 4.1 percent. Zandi predicted it was heading below 4 percent, as the economy is boosted by tax cuts and increased government spending. A strengthening economy is starting to lift U.S. in”ation. The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates as the economy gains momentum, but it is not expected to raise rates at its latest meeting, which ends Wednesday.Survey: US businesses added 204,000 jobs in AprilBy PAUL WISEMANAP ECONOMICS WRITER AP PHOTO PROVIDEDA woman speaks to Maui Divers Jewelry representatives at a job fair in Honolulu. On Wednesday, May 2, payroll processor ADP reports how many jobs private employers added in April. Axed. Terminated. Canned. No matter how you phrase it, getting “red never feels good„ and its all too easy to fall into the career doldrums, convincing yourself that youll never work again. Dont be that person. If youve been “red, own it. Accept the reality of the situation, remind yourself that there are other “sh in the job search sea„and then get yourself and your resume back on the market, stronger than ever. But do it honestly, and do it right. You can rebound with these strategies for staying in the game and landing a new job. Monster career experts offer “ve ways to get back in the game after a big setback.1. Work your networkGet networking. Dont neglect your professional network predating your time with your most recent employer. Your former colleagues can be some of your best allies during this period, especially if they can speak to your overall skill set and dedication as a worker. Whatever the circumstances of your “ring, these are people who can help ”esh out the larger picture of who you are as a co-worker„as someone with a lot more to your career than one shaky spot on your resume. Make use of your newfound free time in ways that will make you more appealing to employers,Ž says Jen Kapela of Jen Kapela Leadership Solutions. Join a professional development group, volunteer in the community, and intern at a company in your chosen career “eld.Ž2. Try to get a referenceDepending on the situation, theres still a chance youll be able to use your previous employer as a reference. Youll be your own best judge on that matter, but it never hurts to send your old boss a note thanking them for the time you were employed. Dont get us wrong: Youll need to take responsibility for the fact that you were “red. But if you strike the right tone, youll have a much better chance of leaving on a positive note. Being gracious, and taking full responsibility for the reason of your termination, whether or not you agree with the reason, will go a long way,Ž says Katy Imhoff, owner and CEO of Camden Kelly Corp.3. Keep your head in the gameDont give in to the temptation to loaf around the house in a Net”ixfueled haze. If youve just been “red, its crucial that you avoid letting the current gap in your resume widen into a yawning chasm. Even if you dont immediately apply for jobs, try doing something productive that will help you when you do return to the job market, like enroll in a course to help develop your skills and make yourself more in-demand as an employee. Use social media to stay current on happenings in your “eld. Start following thought leaders and in”uencers who post about topics related to your industry, and become more active by liking and sharing. Your network will notice your activity, making you top of mind if they hear of new openings.4. Choose your words carefullyOkay, so youve gotten past that “rst hump, and youre interviewing for a new job. Congrats! But now comes the tricky part of the post-“ring job search; you need to take a lot of care in the way you frame your circumstances. Dont avoid it, and certainly dont lie about it. But phrases like differences of opinionŽ or different working philosophiesŽ largely speak for themselves, as long as they accurately refer to the situation. The main thing youll want to avoid? Speaking ill of your previous employer. If you had differences with your supervisor, thats okay,Ž says Alan Guinn, managing director at the Guinn Consultancy Group. If you couldnt deal with them, that may have been okay, too, depending on the circumstances. But personal attacks? Theyre a no-no.Ž5. Reassess and reinventSelf-re”ection is underrated in general, and its especially helpful when youve just been “red from your job. This is the time to ask yourself why things didnt work out, to focus deeply on your strengths and weaknesses as a worker and consider how youll de“ne success as you move toward the next step of your career. No matter how lousy you feel right now, this isnt the time to wallow in victimhood, whether or not you feel its warranted. Really take the time to look within yourself and determine why the job didnt work,Ž says human resources consultant Lori Kleiman. This will provide an opportunity during your next interview for you to discuss why the job was not a “t for you or the company, and how you feel your strengths can be better served in the new area.ŽGet to workObviously, getting “red isnt the best look for your career, but the fact is people get “red. It doesnt mean youre doomed to a life spent sitting on the couch watching infomercials. You need to take action and start being visible to hiring managers.Tips for getting a job after youve been firedBy MACK GELBERMONSTER CONTRIBUTORThats particularly true in Colorados resort areas, where hotels and ski lifts are heavily staffed with young workers, Graves said: They can lose their jobs and walk across the street and get another one.Ž FPI, a propertymanagement firm in San Francisco that employs 2,900 around the country, from leasing managers to groundskeepers, has dozens of jobs listed on online boards. Its ads say applicants must pass a full background check and drug screening.Ž But it adds, As it relates to marijuana use, FPI will consider any applicable state law when dispositioning test results.Ž FPI didnt respond to requests for comment, which isnt unusual given that companies that have dropped marijuana tests arent exactly billboarding their decisions. Most still seek to maintain drug-free workplaces and still test for harder drugs. Theyre pretty hushhush about it,Ž Graves said. AutoNation, which operates dealerships in 17 states, is one of the few that have gone public. The company stopped testing for marijuana about a year ago. Marc Cannon, a company spokesman, said it did so mostly in response to evolving public attitudes. But it also feared losing prospective employees. The labor market has tightened up,Ž Cannon said. AutoNation heard from other business leaders, Cannon said. They said things like, Were doing the same thing; we just didnt want to share it publicly.Ž Relaxed attitudes among employers are spreading from states where recreational marijuana is legal to those where its lawful only for medical use, such as Michigan and New Hampshire. Janis Petrini, who owns an Express Employment staffing agency in Grand Rapids, Michigan, says that with the areas unemployment rate below 3 percent, employers are growing desperate. Some are willing to ignore the results of drug tests performed by Express, which still screens for marijuana and wont place workers who test positive. We have had companies say to us, We dont worry about that as much as we used to,Ž Petrini said. We say, OK, well, we are still following our standards.  One of Reidys clients, a manufacturer in New Hampshire, has dropped marijuana testing because it draws some workers from neighboring Massachusetts and Maine, which have legalized pot for recreational use. Another client, which runs assisted living facilities from Florida to Maine, has stopped testing its housekeeping and food service workers for marijuana. The stigma surrounding marijuana use is eroding, compounding pressure on employers to stop testing. Sixty-four percent of Americans support legalizing pot, a Gallup poll found, the highest percentage in a half-century of surveys. In Las Vegas, where recreational use is legal, marijuana dispensaries look almost like Apple stores,Ž said Thoran Towler, CEO of the Nevada Association of Employers. Many high-tech companies have been moving from California to Nevada to escape Californias high costs, and theyre seeking workers. Towler says the most common question from his 400 member executives is, Where do I “nd employees?Ž He estimates that roughly one-tenth of his groups members have stopped testing for marijuana out of frustration. They say, I have to get people on the casino ”oor or make the beds, and I cant worry about what theyre doing in their spare time,Ž Towler said.HIRINGFROM PAGE 2 4JOBS Page 34 E/N/C www.yoursun.com The Sun / Wednesday, April 11, 2 018 1 000 R EA L EST A T EW e A r e P l e d g e d T o T h e L e t t e r A n d S pi r i t of U .S P o l i c y F o r T h e A c h i e v e m e n t O f Eq u a l H o u s i n g O p p o r t u n i t y T h r oug h ou t T h e N a t i o n W e E n c o u r a g e A n d S u p po r t A n A f f i r m a t i v e A d v e r t i s i n g A n d M a r k e t i n g P r og r a m I n W h i ch t h e r e A r e No B a r r i e r s T o O b t a i n i n g H o u s i n g B e c a u s e of R a c e Co l or R e l i g i o n S e c H a n di c a p F a m i l i a l S t a t u s O r N a t i o n a l O r i g i n .Ž REAL EST A TE 1 01 0 16 5 0 1010Open House 1015 R eal Estate A ucti o n s 1020 Hom es/Ge neral Fo r Sal e 1030Wa terfront H omes For Sale 1 031 Foreclosures For S ale 103 5 Go lf Course Commu nity For S ale 104 0C ondos/Vil las F or Sale 1 060 Townhouse s For Sale 1070Du plexes For Sale 1075TriPlex For Sale 108 0 Ap artments F or Sa le 109 0 Mobile Ho me s Fo r Sale 110 0 In terval Owner ship 1100 Out of Area Homes For Sale 1115Trade/Exc hange 112 0 W an t e d To Buy RENT 1 205 Lease Op ti on 1210 Ho mes 240 Co ndos/V i l las 280 T ownhouses 00Du p le xes 20 Apartments 0 Hotel /Mo tel 0 Mo bile Homes Misc.

That report comes from payroll company ADP, which counted 62,000 new jobs at its customers with up to 49 employees. The April number rebounded from a downwardly revised 42,000 in March. Small company owners are hiring more cautiously than companies overall. Businesses of all sizes added a robust 204,000 jobs last month, the sixth straight month that 200,000 or more jobs were created, ADP said. Small businesses have added an average of nearly 66,000 jobs over that time, but since the start of this year, theyve averaged more than 56,000 as hiring slowed. In the same period a year earlier, they created on average 82,000 jobs a month. The slower hiring isnt a sign of trouble at small businesses, but instead a change in strategy from before the Great Recession. More than decade ago, owners philosophy was to hire in anticipation of new business. Today, many wont hire until they have enough new revenue to justify taking on more workers. Surveys taken recently by banks and small business advocacy groups show that at most, a third of small businesses plan to expand their staffs in the next 12 months.ADP: Small business hiring picked up moderately in AprilTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS Make Your House a HOME!

The News Wire Sunday, May 6, 2018 STATE € NATIONAL € WORLD € BUSINESS € WEATHER WOMANS GRUESOME ROACHINEAR TALE GOES VIRALSee page 8. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. „ A robotic geologist armed with a hammer and quake monitor rocketed toward Mars on Saturday, aiming to land on the red planet and explore its mysterious insides. In a twist, NASA launched the Mars InSight lander from California rather than Floridas Cape Canaveral. It was the “rst interplanetary mission ever to depart from the West Coast, drawing pre-dawn crowds to fog-socked Vandenberg Air Force Base and rocket watchers down the California coast into Baja. This is a big day. Were going back to Mars!Ž NASAs new boss, Jim Bridenstine, said following liftoff. This is an extraordinary mission with a whole host of “rsts.Ž The spacecraft will take more than six months to get to Mars and start its unprecedented geologic excavations, traveling 300 million miles to get there. InSight will dig deeper into Mars than ever before „ nearly 16 feet, or 5 meters „ to take the planets temperature. It will also attempt to make the “rst measurements of marsquakes, using a high-tech seismometer placed directly on the Martian surface. Thats the real payoff of this whole mission and thats still lying ahead of us,Ž said the missions chief scientist, Bruce Banerdt of NASAs Jet Propulsion NASA launches spacecraft to Mars to dig down deepBy MARCIA DUNNAP AEROSPACE WRITERDALLAS „ Months after the horror of the Parkland school shootings in Florida, President Donald Trump stood before cheering members of the National Ri”e Association and urged them to elect more Republicans to Congress to defend gun rights. Trump claimed that Democrats want to outlaw gunsŽ and said if the nation takes that drastic step, it might as well ban all vans and trucks because they are the new weapons for maniac terrorists.Ž We will never give up our freedom. We will live free and we will die free,Ž Trump said Friday as he tried to rally progun voters for the 2018 congressional elections. Weve got to do great in 18.Ž Activists energized by shootings at schools, churches and elsewhere are also focused on those elections. In the aftermath of the February school shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left 17 dead and many more wounded, Trump had temporarily strayed from gun rights dogma. During a televised gun meeting with lawmakers in late February, he wagged his “nger at a Republican senator and scolded him for being afraid of the NRA,Ž declaring that he would stand up to the group and “nally get results in quelling gun violence. But he later backpedaled on that tough talk. He was clearly back in the fold at the NRAs annual convention, pledging that Americans Second Amendment right to bear arms will never ever be under siege as long as I am your president.Ž Trump brie”y referenced the Parkland shootings in his speech, saying that he mourned for the victims and Trump at NRA: He wont let right to bear arms be under siegeBy CATHERINE LUCEYASSOCIATED PRESSPAHOA, Hawaii „ Hundreds of anxious residents on the Big Island of Hawaii hunkered down Saturday for what could be weeks or months of upheaval as the dangers from an erupting Kilauea volcano continued to grow. Lava spurted from volcanic vents, toxic gas “lled the air and strong earthquakes „ including a magnitude 6.9 temblor on Friday „ rocked an already jittery population. The trifecta of natural threats forced the evacuation of more than 1,700 people from communities near the lava and prompted the closure of parks, college campuses and a section of the main road through the area on the Big Islands southern tip. Five structures have burned and thousands of customers brie”y lost power from one of the larger quakes. Tesha MirahŽ Montoya, 45, said toxic fumes escaping from the lava vents werent enough to make her family evacuate, but the tipping point were the earthquakes. I felt like the whole side Hawaiians brace for long upheaval as erupting Kilauea boilsBy CALEB JONES and AUDREY MCAVOYASSOCIATED PRESS ERUPTING | 2 MARS | 2 NRA | 3WASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump seems determined to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal next week, with U.S. of“cials suggesting that any initial diplomatic turbulence will be followed by negotiations for a new agreement. But Iran is ruling out new talks, calling the current agreement nonnegotiable.Ž And Americas European allies continue to back it, saying the deal has been essential to reining in Irans nuclear program. As U.S. allies and the government in Tehran question what might follow a U.S. withdrawal, the Trump administration remains focused on how it could toughen or replace the agreement to address issues such as Irans behavior in the Middle East „ including its “rm foothold in Syria and support for Hezbollah militants that threaten Israel „ and its continuing development of ballistic missiles. Trump hinted at his thinking Monday. While refusing to reveal what hell do by May 12, he repeated his belief the existing deal is a horrible agreement for the United States.Ž But, he added, That doesnt mean I wouldnt negotiate a new agreement.Ž Iranian President Hassan Rouhanis government says the U.S. is bullyingŽ his country. Iran has long claimed that the U.S. isnt fully complying with its side of the deal „ a requirement that world powers ease economic sanctions „ and that uncertainty about the agreements future has stymied investment. Let me make it absolutely clear once and for all: We will neither outsource our security, nor will we renegotiate or add on to a deal we have already implemented in good US looks beyond Iran nuclear-deal deadlineBy NICK WADHAMSBLOOMBERG NEWSIRAN | 3 PHOTOS PROVIDED BY BILL INGALLS/NASA VIA APThis image provided by NASA, InSight spacecraft launches onboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas-V rocket, Saturday, from Vandenber g Air Force Base, Calif.

Although fog prevented Banerdt from seeing the liftoff of the $1 billion U.S.-European mission, he heard the roar of the rocket and all the blaring car alarms it set off. It was just an incredible moment,Ž Banerdt told The Associated Press by phone. Despite the challenges still ahead, I think I can bask in a little bit of satisfaction and just feeling like we really accomplished something today.Ž Besides InSight, the United Launch Alliances Atlas V rocket gave a lift to a pair of mini test satellites, or CubeSats, that are trailing InSight to Mars to serve as a potential communication link. Nicknamed WALL-E and EVE from the 2008 animated movie, the twin briefcase-size spacecraft popped off the rockets upper stage in hot pursuit of InSight, as elated launch controllers applauded and shook hands following the mornings success. NASA hasnt put a spacecraft down on Mars since the Curiosity rover in 2012. The U.S., in fact, is the only country to successfully land and operate a spacecraft at Mars. Its tough, complicated stuff. Only about 40 percent of all missions to Mars from all countries „ orbiters and landers alike „ have proven successful over the decades. If all goes well, the three-legged InSight will descend by parachute and engine “rings onto a ”at equatorial region of Mars „ believed to be free of big, potentially dangerous rocks „ on Nov. 26. Once down, it will stay put, using a mechanical arm to place the science instruments on the surface. Banerdt said Mars is ideal for learning how the rocky planets of our solar system formed 4.5 billion years ago. Unlike our active Earth, Mars hasnt been transformed by plate tectonics and other processes, he noted. InSight might also help explain why some planets „ like ours „ went on to develop life, while others did not. Over the course of two Earth years „ or one Martian year „ NASA expects InSights three main experiments to provide a true 3-D image of the interior of Mars. Scientists know Mars has an iron core and a crust, but beyond that, the inside is basically, completely unknown,Ž said Banerdt. The lander is equipped with a seismometer for measuring marsquakes, a self-hammering probe for burrowing beneath the surface, and a radio system for tracking the spacecrafts position and planets wobbly rotation, thereby revealing the size and composition of Mars core. InSight, for seismologists, will really be a piece of history, a new page of history,Ž said the Paris Institute of Earth Physics Philippe Lognonne, lead scientist of the InSight seismometer. Problems with the French-supplied seismometer kept InSight from launching two years ago. California was always part of the plan. NASA normally launches from Cape Canaveral, but decided to switch to California for InSight to take advantage of a shorter ”ight backlog. This was the “rst U.S. interplanetary mission to launch from somewhere other than Cape Canaveral. The fog ruined the view for those gathered at Vandenberg along the central California coast.

Its part of my being.Ž Tina Neal, the scientist in charge of the U.S. Geological Surveys Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, warned distressed residents at a community meeting late Friday that eruptions could last longer than the ones from earlier this week, and earthquakes and aftershocks could continue for days, even weeks. Gary McMillan said his home is about 3,000 feet from one of the “ssures that is spewing lava and gas into Leilani Estates. He has remote cameras set up in his home and says that as of now his home is still intact. Hes living out of his van with his wife at the nearby community center and constantly thinks about the things they were forced to leave behind „ but understands why authorities are keeping residents out. The lava lake at Kilaueas summit crater dropped signi“cantly, suggesting the magma was moving eastward toward Puna, a mostly rural district of forests, papaya farms and lava “elds left by past eruptions. Of“cials warned of the dangers of spattering hot rock and high levels of sulfuric gas that could threaten the elderly and people with breathing problems. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park evacuated all visitors and non-emergency staff. The quakes triggered rock slides on park trails and crater walls. Narrow “ssures appeared on the ground at a building overlooking the crater at Kilaueas summit. The University of Hawaii at Hilo and Hawaii Community College both closed campuses and a long stretch of Highway 130, one of the main arteries through Puna, was closed because of the threat of sulfuric gas. Leilani Estates, where lava was pushing through cracks in the earth, has about 1,700 residents and 770 homes. A nearby neighborhood, Lanipuna Gardens, which has a few dozen people, also was evacuated. Kilauea has been continuously erupting since 1983 and is one of “ve volcanoes that make up the Big Island. Activity picked up earlier this week, indicating a possible new lava outbreak. The crater ”oor began to collapse Monday, triggering earthquakes and pushing the lava into new underground chambers. The collapse caused magma to push more than 10 miles downslope toward the populated southeast coastline. Residents have faced lava threats before. In 2014, lava burned a house and destroyed a cemetery near the town of Pahoa. Residents were worried it would cover the towns main road and cut off the community from the rest of the island, but the molten rock stalled. From 1990 through 1991, lava slowly overtook the town of Kalapana, burning homes and covering roads and gardens. Kilauea hasnt been the kind of volcano that shoots lava from its summit into the sky, causing widespread destruction. It tends to ooze lava from “ssures in its sides, which often gives residents at least a few hours warning before it reaches their property. In the uncertainty, however, some residents found comfort in the abiding beauty of the Big Island. Evacuees Todd Corrigan and his wife awoke to a beautiful sunrise Saturday in Puna after spending the night in their car at the shore. Paradise isnt always perfect,Ž he said, but its still beautiful.ŽERUPTINGFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOAfter being forced out of his home at the Leilani Estates due to a mandatory evacuation, Tim Sullivan, 61, sits in his pickup truck near a local shelter, Friday, in Pahoa, HI.

(AP) „ A man who allegedly slapped the water near a group of mating manatees has found himself being slapped with a harassment charge. A Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report identifies the culprit as Luis Miguel Perez, a 49-year-old fisherman in the Key West chain. The Miami Herald reports that Officer Glen Way used his phone to record the fisherman. Its illegal to poke, prod, pursue or feed manatees in Florida, and that includes giving them fresh water, splashing or making excessive noise. Mary Stella with the Dolphin Research Center says harassment is defined as anything that alters the animals natural behavior.Ž According to Mondays arrest report, there were 16 manatees in the group. The fisherman was charged with a second-degree misdemeanor. Its unclear whether he has a lawyer.ODD NEWS Splashing near mating manatees puts Florida man in hot waterFROM PAGE ONE/NATIONfaith,Ž Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a video posted on Twitter. While the May 12 deadline has been portrayed as a yes-or-no decision for Trump, its not that simple. Under a law passed by Congress, Trump has to determine periodically whether to continue waiving sanctions linked to transactions with Irans central bank. The 2015 deal required the U.S. to lift those sanctions. If they go back into effect, the U.S. will almost certainly be in violation of the agreement. One possible scenario is that Trump will declare hes backing out of the deal and reimposes sanctions, but leaves time before those sanctions take effect. Such a grace period would put new pressure on European allies to make new concessions toward “xing what the U.S. considers the deals biggest gaps. While Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hasnt promised a grace period, he said at his Senate con“rmation hearing in April that even after May 12 there is still much diplomatic work to be done.Ž Trumps long-term goal is a better deal, not con”ict, said Michael Singh, managing director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and a former senior director for Middle East affairs under President George W. Bush. Even if we were to try to reimpose sanctions and ramp up pressure, ultimately the object of doing so would be to get them to the negotiating table to agree to more far-reaching steps,Ž Singh said. For weeks, U.S. negotiators have been meeting with allies France, the U.K. and Germany to reach a consensus on side agreements responding to U.S. concerns. They say theyve made progress on some elements but havent agreed on the sunset clausesŽ in the current deal under which many of the key provisions expire in coming years and Iran is allowed to start enriching uranium to high levels again. Despite Irans insistence that it wont negotiate a new agreement, the administration is betting that economic strains in the country, and the prospect of further isolation if the deal crumbles, will eventually force its leaders to the negotiating table. Thats viewed with intense by outsiders. They say Iran has no reason to agree to a tougher deal without concessions like those that led to the agreement, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, in the “rst place. As for a future deal, U.S. of“cials were encouraged by a four-point proposal offered by French President Emmanuel Macron last week that echoed many of their demands. But Macron has argued that any new agreement be an add-on, not a replacement. In a call with Rouhani late last month, Macron and his Iranian counterpart agreed to work together to try to preserve the agreement. But Irans government website quoted Rouhani as saying Iran wont accept any additional restrictions and the deal is by no means negotiable.Ž At the same time, the European strategy appears to be to try to manage Trump „ possibly with some sort of additional measures „ while also coaxing Iran to stay in the nuclear deal as long as possible, perhaps until after 2020 when the U.S. may have a new president.IRANFROM PAGE 1 their familiesŽ and noting that he signed a spending bill that included provisions to strengthen the federal background check system for gun purchases as well as add money to improve school safety. He also repeated his strong support for letting highly trained teachers carry concealed weapons.Ž Trumps speech in Dallas was his fourth consecutive appearance at the NRAs annual convention. His gun comments were woven into a campaignstyle speech that touched on the Russia probe, the 2016 campaign, his efforts in North Korea and Iran and his “ght against illegal immigration. In strikingly personal criticism of members of Congress, he decried what he said were terribly weak immigration laws, declaring, We have laws that were written by people that truly could not love our country.Ž While the president veered wildly off topic at times „ speaking about entertainer Kanye Wests recent support and former Secretary of State John Kerrys bicycle accident three years ago „ he repeatedly returned to the message of the day: his support for the Second Amendment. Trump said some political advisers had told him attending the NRA convention might be controversial, but, You know what I said? Bye, bye, gotta get on the plane.Ž Trump has long enjoyed strong backing from the NRA, which spent about $30 million in support of his presidential campaign. He was introduced by Vice President Mike Pence, who pointed to his own support for gun rights and accused the news media of failing to tell the whole storyŽ that “rearms in the hands of law-abiding citizensŽ make communities safer. One of the Parkland student survivors, David Hogg, criticized Trumps appearance in advance. Its kind of hypocritical of him to go there after saying so many politicians bow to the NRA and are owned by them,Ž Hogg said. It proves that his heart and his wallet are in the same place.Ž Back in February, Trump had praised members of the gun lobby as great patriotsŽ but declared that doesnt mean we have to agree on everything. It doesnt make sense that I have to wait until Im 21 to get a handgun, but I can get this weapon at 18.Ž He was referring to the AR-15 the Parkland shooting suspect is accused of using. Those words rattled some Republicans in Congress and sparked hope among guncontrol advocates that, unlike after previous mass shootings, tougher regulations might be enacted. But after expressing interest in increasing the minimum age to purchase an assault weapon to 21, Trump later declared there was not much political supportŽ for that. He then pushed off the issue of age restrictions by assigning it to a commission. Gabrielle Giffords, the former Arizona congresswoman who was shot outside a grocery store during a constituent gathering in 2011, said Trump had allowed his presidency to be hijacked by gun lobbyists and campaign dollars.Ž She said Trump had ignored the pleas of young people demanding safer gun laws.ŽNRAFROM PAGE 1 PARIS (AP) „ France is sternly rejecting U.S. President Donald Trumps argument that if Parisians had more guns they could have stopped the deadly 2015 extremist attacks on the French capital. French Foreign Minister JeanYves Le Drian expressed his “rm disapprovalŽ of Trumps remarks and vigorously defended Frances gun controls. In a statement Saturday, Le Drian said gun violence statistics do not lead us to reconsider Frances choice on this issue.Ž Gun violence death rates are much higher in the U.S. Le Drian continued: Free circulation of weapons in society does not constitute a rampart against terrorist attacks, to the contrary, it can facilitate ... this type of attack.Ž Islamic State attackers killed 130 people in Paris Bataclan concert hall, cafes and the national stadium.France slams Trump for NRA remarks on guns and Paris attacksWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump is suggesting Rudy Giuliani, the aggressive new face of his legal team, needed to get his facts straightŽ about the hush money paid to porn actress Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 election. Giuliani quickly came up with a new version. Trump on Friday chided Giuliani even while insisting were not changing any storiesŽ about the $130,000 settlement paid to Daniels to keep quiet about her allegations of a sexual encounter with Trump „ a tryst Trump has denied. Hours later, Giuliani backed away from his previous assertion that the Oct. 27 settlement had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his campaign. The payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in order to protect the presidents family,Ž Giuliani said in a statement. It would have been done in any event, whether he was a candidate or not.Ž A day earlier, Giuliani had told Fox News: Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton.Ž Trump said Giuliani was a great guy but he just started a day agoŽ on the defense team, and the former New York mayor was still learning the subject matter.Ž Giuliani disclosed this week that Trump knew about the payment to Daniels made by Trumps personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and the president repaid Cohen. Giuliani insisted Trump didnt know the speci“cs of Cohens arrangement with Daniels until recently, and he told Fox & FriendsŽ on Thursday that the president was unaware of all the details until maybe 10 days ago.Ž Giuliani told The New York Times that Trump had repaid Cohen $35,000 a month out of his personal family accountŽ after the campaign was over. He said Cohen received $460,000 or $470,000 in all for expenses related to Trump. While Giuliani suggested Trump knew something about the payments, even as a monthly retainer, Trump had told reporters on Air Force One last month that he hadnt known about a settlement with Daniels. Trumps irritation was plain Friday when reporters reminded him of his previous denial. He blasted the media for focusing on crapŽ stories such as the Daniels matter and the special counsels investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The president claimed that virtually everythingŽ reported about the payments has been wrong. He declined to elaborate. It was the Trump teams own missteps that yielded another day of headlines about Daniels. In his statement, Giuliani said his previous references to timing were not describing my understanding of the presidents knowledge, but instead, my understanding of these matters.Ž He didnt elaborate on that either. Giulianis statement correcting himself came just a day after he said, You wont see daylight between me and the president.Ž The about-face came amid concern in the White House that Giulianis comments could leave the president legally vulnerable. Giuliani repeated his belief that the payment did not constitute a campaign “nance violation. But legal experts have said the new information raises questions, including whether the money represented repayment of an undisclosed loan or could be seen as reimbursement for a campaign expenditure. Either could be legally problematic. The episode also revived worries in Trumps inner circle about Giuliani, who enjoys the media limelight and has a tendency to go off script. He had been widely expected to join Trumps administration but was passed over for secretary of state, the position he badly wanted. His whirlwind press tour this week bewildered West Wing aides, who were cut out of the decisionmaking process when Giuliani “rst revealed that Trump, who often boasts about signing his own checks, had some knowledge about the payment to Daniels. No debt to Cohen was listed on Trumps personal “nancial disclosure form, which was certi“ed on June 16, 2017. Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is seeking to be released from a nondisclosure deal she signed in the days before the 2016 election to keep her from talking about a 2006 sexual encounter she said she had with Trump. She has also “led defamation suits against Cohen and Trump. Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted Friday that Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Trump are making it up as they go along.Ž He added: How stupid do they think all of us are?Ž Trump is facing mounting legal threats from the Cohen-Daniels situation and the special counsels investigation of possible Russian coordination with the Trump presidential campaign. Cohen is facing a criminal investigation in New York, and FBI agents raided his home and of“ce several weeks ago seeking records about the Daniels nondisclosure agreement. Trump has been playing down his relationship with Cohen but did acknowledge last week that Cohen represented him in the crazy Stormy Daniels deal.ŽTrump chides Giuliani to get his facts straight on StormyBy JONATHAN LEMIRE and CATHERINE LUCEYASSOCIATED PRESS

Among those arrested was protest organizer Alexei Navalny, the anti-corruption campaigner who is Putins most prominent foe. Police seized Navalny by the arms and legs and carried the thrashing activist from Moscows Pushkin Square, where thousands were gathered for an unauthorized protest. Police also used batons against protesters who chanted Putin is a thief!Ž and Russia will be free!Ž Demonstrations under the slogan He is not our czarŽ took place throughout the country, from Yakutsk in the far northeast to St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad on the fringes of Europe. The protests demonstrated that Navalnys opposition, although considered beleaguered by Russian of“cials and largely ignored by state-controlled television, has sizeable support in much of the country. I think that Putin isnt worthy of leading this country. He has been doing it for 18 years and has done nothing good for it,Ž said Moscow demonstrator Dmitry Nikitenko. He should leave for good.Ž OVD-Info, an organization that monitors political repression, said late Saturday that 1,599 people had been detained at demonstrations in 26 Russian cities. It said 702 were arrested in Moscow alone, and another 232 in St. Petersburg. Moscow police said about 300 people were detained in the capital, state news agencies said, and there was no of“cial countrywide tally. Let my son go!Ž Iraida Nikolaeva screamed, running after police in Moscow when they detained her son. He did not do anything! Are you a human or not? Do you live in Russia or not?Ž Navalny was to be charged with disobeying police, an offense that carries a sentence of up to 15 days, news reports said, though when he would face a judge was not immediately clear. Navalny has served several multi-week stretches in jail on similar charges. In St. Petersburg, police blocked off a stretch of Nevsky Prospekt as a crowd of about 1,000 marched along the renowned avenue. Video showed some demonstrators being detained. Putin is to be inaugurated for a new six-year term on Monday after winning re-election in March with 77 percent of the vote. Navalny had hoped to challenge him on the ballot but was blocked because of a felony conviction in a case that supporters regard as falsi“ed in order to marginalize him. In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert criticized the actions of the Russian police. The United States condemns #Russias detention of hundreds of peaceful protesters and calls for their immediate release. Leaders who are secure in their own legitimacy dont arrest their peaceful opponents for protesting,Ž she tweeted. Navalny has called nationwide demonstrations several times in the past year, and their turnout has rattled the Kremlin. Saturdays protests attracted crowds of hundreds in cities that are far remote from Moscow, challenging authorities contention that Navalny and other opposition “gures appeal only to a small, largely urban elite.Nearly 1600 reported arrested in Russian anti-Putin protestsBy JIM HEINTZASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOProtesters shout anti-government slogans holding small posters reading Russia is us!, and Im over it at a demonstration against President Vladimir Putin in Pushkin Square in Moscow, Russia, Saturday.

The U.S. Embassy said in a statement that Roberta Jacobson and her husband departed Mexico on a commercial ”ight to the United States. Representing the #USA in Mexico was the job of my life. Thank you to this beautiful country and its people. I predict a prosperous future for Mexico,Ž Jacobson tweeted in Spanish. Today I believe even more in the strength of the Mexico-U.S. relationship,Ž she added. Jacobson, who announced her retirement in March, previously served in a number of posts focused on the Americas, including assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs. She was sworn in as the United States “rst female ambassador to Mexico on May 5, 2016, following a nearly yearlong delay in her Senate con“rmation due to her role in representing the Obama administration in negotiations on restoring diplomatic with Cuba. During her tenure in Mexico, relations with the United States were often tense amid President Donald Trumps tough stance on migration and trade and his vows to build a border wall and force Mexico to pay for it, something that President Enrique Pena Nietos government has forcefully rejected. However the ambassador was seen as well-liked by Mexicans, and observers credit her with steering clear of the noise coming from both sides and quietly focusing on what could be achieved in the bilateral relationship. Jacobson was also known for speaking out on issues close to her, such as violence against women and killings of journalists in the country. She marched twice in Mexico Citys Pride Parade, and last September she accompanied U.S. rescuers who came to the capital to assist in searching for victims of a deadly earthquake. The U.S. Embassy posted a video montage on YouTube showing Jacobson traveling around Mexico with family, trying on a lucha libreŽ wrestling mask, speaking with young Mexicans, posing with actor Diego Luna and ceremonially breaking ground this year on a nearly $1 billion embassy complex under construction. My time in Mexico was brief,Ž she acknowledged in the video, promising to return as soon as possible: This is not a goodbye, but rather until the next time.ŽUS ambassador to Mexico departs, ends 30-year State careerBy PETER ORSIASSOCIATED PRESS WARSAW, Poland „ Rescuers have located a third miner out of seven who went missing after an earthquake struck a coal mine Saturday in southern Poland, a mining of“cial said. Two were rescued earlier with non-life threatening injuries. Daniel Ozon, head of the Jastrzebie Coal Company, said they can see the third miner and have contact with him, but they still need to reach him. Four miners have yet to be located. More than 200 rescuers and support teams were working through the rubble and pumping air to the search area to “nd the missing miners, Ozon said. The rescue operation was launched at 11:25 a.m. Saturday after a temblor occurred at the Zo“owka coal mine, said Katarzyna Jablonska-Bajer of the coal company. The mine is located in the southern town of Jastrzebie-Zdroj near Polands border with the Czech Republic. Jablonska-Bajer said four miners were quickly brought to the surface but contact was lost with seven others who were 2,950 feet underground, preparing a new corridor for extraction work. Polands State Mining Authority said the temblor had a magnitude of 3.4, while the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre pegged it at 4.3. TVN24 said the quake was also felt on the surface and shook some houses. There has never been such a powerful quake at the mine,Ž Jablonska-Bajer said. High methane levels in the mine delayed rescuers from trying to reach the accident site for several hours. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, who arrived at the mine Saturday night, said the rescuers were working non-stop and using the best equipment to reach the missing miners but they were running into blocks of rubble. We are doing everything to save the miners,Ž he told reporters. Miners relatives gathered in front of the mine Saturday waiting for the latest information, while the families of the missing were brought into the building. Coal mining is a major industry in Poland. Coal remains the main source of energy and heating in the country but Poland is taking some steps to shift toward renewable, cleaner sources of energy. The Main Statistical Of“ce said some 65.8 million metric tons of coal were extracted last year in Poland, some 4.8 million tons less than in 2016. Many of Polands mines are dangerous, with methane gas that has led to a number of deadly explosions and cave-ins. So far this year, four miners have been killed at different coal mines, according to the State Mining Authority. In 2016, eight miners were killed in a cave-in at the Rudna mine in Polkowice and methane explosions killed “ve miners at the MyslowiceWesola mine in 2014.Rescue workers in Poland located 3rd coal miner, 4 missingBy MONIKA SCISLOWSKAASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOAn ambulance arriving after a tremor at the Zoowka coal mine in JastrzebieZdroj in southern Poland, on Saturday.

Puigdemont met Saturday with members of his Together for Catalonia coalition in Berlin, where he is awaiting extradition to Spain on charges of rebellion and misuse of public funds in organizing an unauthorized referendum last year on Catalonias independence. A coalition spokesman says they will try to elect Puigdemont by May 14. If a president is not sworn in by May 22 a new election will be triggered. Separatist lawmakers laws Friday to allow Catalonias president to be sworn in without being present. Spanish courts have blocked past efforts by Catalan separatists to continue their secession push. MEXICO CITY (AP) „ Mexican authorities say nine men have been found murdered in the back of a small cargo truck in the southern state of Guerrero. State prosecutors say in a statement that the men were apparently kidnapped Thursday and reported missing the following night. The truck was discovered Saturday morning along a highway between the state capital, Chilpancingo, and the city of Tixtla. Prosecutors say the men lived in Tixtla and Chilpancingo and used the vehicle to sell possibly ill-gotten food products. Guerrero has one of the highest homicide rates of Mexicos 31 states plus the capital district.

New York Times Sunday Crossword No. 0429 Name That CompanyMy name came about due to a 1929 merger of two aviation companies. One was founded by a guy who beat the Wright brothers at an international aviation meet in 1909. During World War I, that guys company became the worlds largest aircraft maker, employing thousands. Over the years I was influential in developing air-cooled engines, early flight simulators and innovative propeller designs. Today, based in Davidson, North Carolina, and with a market value near $6 billion, Im a global company, employing about 8,600 people and serving the commercial, industrial, defense and energy markets. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. than corresponding mutual funds, and they can be more tax-efficient, too, with less frequent trading than their mutual-fund counterparts. While many mutual funds require minimum investments of $1,000 or more, you can buy as little as a single share of an ETF through your brokerage account, with many costing $100 to $300 per share. Like stocks, ETFs can be shorted, optioned and margined. This isnt necessarily a good thing. Neither is the fact that since they can be easier and less expensive to invest in than mutual funds, some people jump in and out of them frequently. Doing so can eat up any cost benefit by racking up trading costs „ and buying and selling any stocks or funds rapidly can also hurt your performance. Before buying any ETF, read up on it to understand exactly what its holdings and fees are.

To see some ETFs (and mutual funds) weve recommended, try our Rule Your RetirementŽ service at fool.com/services .The Motley Fool TakePfizer for Your Pfortfolio?Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) is arguably one of the best health care stocks to own right now. Besides sporting a mountain of cash and a top-notch shareholder-rewards program, the company has developed one of the richest oncology pipelines in the business. The drugmakers PD-L1 inhibitor avelumab „ brand name Bavencio „ that it co-develops with Merck KGaA, tends to grab the headlines, but Pfizer also has an earlier-stage oncology pipeline thats home to a slew of high-value experimental drugs and biologic therapies. Over the next decade, these under-the-radar drug candidates could very well transform Pfizer into a top dog in oncology. Meanwhile, the company is looking to sell or spin off its consumer health care unit. By shedding this business, Pfizer should have yet another significant source of funds with which to boost merger-andacquisition activity and shareholder rewards. The companys dividend payout recently yielded 3.7 percent, with more room to grow. Between 2017 and 2022, the company thinks it can win approval for as many as 15 new drugs or new indications for existing drugs with blockbuster potential. With its robust clinical pipeline and exceptionally strong balance sheet, Pfizer is worth considering for a berth in your long-term portfolio. Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentA Quick BurnMy dumbest investment was buying shares of a technologyoriented mutual fund in my Roth IRA. They immediately took a nose dive, sharply falling in value. What should I do? Cash it all out and claim a loss on my taxes? „ L.W., Elk Grove, California The Fool Responds: That investment experience stings, but it might not be as bad as you think. Many stocks and industries can be quite volatile „ and technologyoriented ones can be especially so. Many solid companies and mutual funds will head south for a while, and savvy investors should expect occasional downturns and be ready to be patient. If you have faith in the mutual funds managers or in the companies in which its invested, you might want to hang on. If you dont, then its best to cut your losses and move your money to investments in which you have more confidence. That said, understand that IRA accounts work differently than regular brokerage accounts, and you dont realize taxable gains and losses in them. You can still buy and sell various holdings in them „ and then cash out parts or all of the IRA in retirement. At that time, funds withdrawn from a traditional IRA will be taxable income to you, while Roth IRA withdrawals will be tax-free. Taking money out of an IRA early can lead to penalties „ and taxes. Defensive InvestingQWhats a defensiveŽ stock? „ R. C., Jacksonville, North CarolinaAIts stock in a company whose performance isnt very tied to the economys movements. For example, people might put off buying refrigerators or cars during a recession, but theyll still buy groceries, socks, soap, gas, medicine, electricity and diapers. Food, tobacco, energy and pharmaceuticals are some defensive industries, seen as more stable than their cyclicalŽ counterparts, such as the homebuilding, steel, automobile and airline industries. You dont have to avoid cyclical industries, but know that they can move sharply in relationship to the economy. ***QCan I match the performance of Warren Buffetts company, Berkshire Hathaway, by buying the same stocks it owns? „ M., Midland, MichiganANot at all. Many people mistakenly think of Warren Buffetts company as a kind of mutual fund, since it does own stock in a bunch of companies, such as Apple, American Express and Coca-Cola. We might buy or sell the same stocks that Buffett or his money managers do, but we cant do so at the same time, as their moves are only revealed via occasional required filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Also, Berkshire Hathaway is much more than a portfolio of stocks. Its a conglomerate with strong focuses on insurance and energy, and it encompasses dozens of entire companies, such as Forest River, GEICO, Sees Candies, Fruit of the Loom, Benjamin Moore, Clayton Homes, Johns Manville, sneaker maker Brooks, boot maker Justin Brands, Dairy Queen, Pampered Chef and the BNSF railroad, among many others. You cant duplicate those. Instead, you might just buy shares of Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B) itself. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.)Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to foolnews@fool.com.Fools SchoolConsider ETFsMany people havent heard of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), but theyre worth learning about, as they can serve investors very well. An ETF is a lot like a mutual fund, but it trades like a stock. Many are based on indexes and, like index mutual funds, they will instantly have you invested in the securities that make up the index they track. Here are the ticker symbols for a few ETFs of major indexes: S&P 500 (SPY), Nasdaq 100 (QQQ), total U.S. stock market (VTI), total world stock (VT), Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA), Russell 2000 (IWM) and Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond (AGG). Like index mutual funds, ETFs are among the simplest and easiest investing strategies. If you want to manage some or all of your money passively (i.e., not studying and then buying and selling individual stocks), ETFs can provide significant advantages. For example, ETFs will often feature lower fees 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST. BY ANDREWS MCMEEL SYNDICATION 5/3 LAST WEEKS TRIVIA ANSWERI trace my roots back about 150 years, to when John D.

The Sun /Sunday, May 6, 2018 www.yoursun.com Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: I am a happily married man. Im also a part of my churchs worship team and at the church three times a week. Two ladies are active in the church almost as much as I am. Every time Im there its a good bet Ill see at least one of them. Im ashamed to admit this, but I have lustful feelings for them. I would never act on my feelings, but I would like to get rid of them. Leaving the church is not an option. „ EMBARRASSED IN KANSAS DEAR EMBARRASSED: You seem like a very nice person. Lust is part of the human condition. It has been around since before the Old Testament was written. Instead of feeling guilty, perhaps its time to accept that you are human. Rather than quietly suer embarrassment, it may help to discuss your feelings privately with your clergyperson. It wont be the rst time he or she has heard something like this, trust me. Sometimes simply verbalizing uncomfortable feelings can make them diminish or go away entirely. DEAR ABBY: A coworker reached out to me and we started talking. He asked me on a date, and weve been ocial for about a month now. Hes beyond amazing, but theres a problem. He cant express his feelings to me, or to anyone for that matter. Hes very insecure because he used to be overweight. He hasnt been in a relationship in forever. I know hes serious about us. Im slowly falling for him, and I want it to work out. Is there anything I can do to help him get comfortable with opening up to me? „ FALLING FOR HIM DEAR FALLING: Yes. Start by remembering the two of you have been ocialŽ for only one MONTH, and relationships „ like trust „ have to evolve. Do not push him to make a commitment or declare his undying love. If you are patient, as your relationship develops, he may become more open about expressing his feelings to you. Give him time, and because workplace romances are sometimes frowned upon, give him space. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary this year. What is typical or acceptable in preparing for the celebration? We have a 48-year-old son who has NEVER remembered dates, especially our wedding anniversaries, so I dont expect that hell plan anything in our honor. I love my wife so much I just cant let our 50th slide by without a celebration. Would it be appropriate for me to take the lead? I feel weird setting up a party to honor myself. „ SAD IN COLORADO DEAR SAD: It is not uncommon for couples to plan and host their own anniversary parties. If you would like to celebrate your 50th surrounded by friends and family, you are free to take the initiative and do so. Or spend the money taking your bride on a cruise or other trip of a lifetime.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Declutter it frequently. Vacuum and dust it regularly. If you have a window in the closet or near it, open it to get a bit of fresh air owing into or through the closet. One other major hint: Never place stinky or dirty garments in the closet. Take these steps as well: 1.To help control smells inside your closet, hang a sock or two lled with activated charcoal, which you can purchase at a pet store. Or put out several bowls lled with baking soda. 2.If the closet has a musty smell that could be created by moisture, check closely to nd the source.

They get so dirty. How can I get them clean? „ Tammy from Texas Dear Tammy: Yes, those sports caps get tons of use during the summer, and they do get dirty and sweaty. If you have wool or vintage caps, they should be taken to a dry cleaner, but heres how to clean cotton baseball caps: Put the baseball caps on the top rack of the dishwasher, and wash them alone, without any dishes. Attach them with clothespins or use those special cap forms that can be placed inside the dishwasher. You also can clean the bill and cap by hand-washing with a mild liquid detergent. After cleaning, allow the cap to airdry. „ Heloise Dear Readers: When you are shopping at local supermarkets, always check the products you are purchasing to be sure that they are fresh and safe to buy. Stores provide product-dating labels. Pay attention to them. Here are some of the common labels and exactly what they mean. „ Sell by or pull date means that is the last day an item should be sold. After this, it should be removed from the grocery shelf. „ Expiration date is the last day that the items should be eaten. „ Freshness date indicates how long freshness is guaranteed. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: I purchased a big bag of onions, and now I need some new ideas on how to use them up. I know that you have a great hint for me. „ Melissa from Kansas Dear Melissa: Oh, I do. Make homemade fried onion rings, which are so yummy and crunchy. These will be good as an appetizer or with a burger. You can make them really quickly. Slice onions into rings. Use a prepared pancake mix as the batter. Follow directions that are on the package. Dip onion rings in the batter and then deep fry. „ Heloise Dear Readers: If you are setting up your rst pantry or going to buy a lot of canned goods on sale, use these hints to make the canned goods last longer and stay fresher. Do not store canned goods in the basement close to a furnace or steam pipes. Never put canned goods in the garage or on a porch where the temperatures will be too hot or too cold. Fluctuating temperatures will negatively aect the quality of canned goods. So its best that you store them in a pantry or cupboard that is away from the kitchen stove. „ HeloiseDedicated churchgoer, married man seeks strength against lustDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Page 8 www.yoursun.com The Sun / Sunday, May 6, 2018 NATIONAL NEWS ST. PETERSBURG „ Those screams you hear? Theyre the collective sounds of primal anguish after reading a Florida womans account of waking up with a palmetto bug in her ear. (Thats the polite name for a ”ying cockroach, for those of you not acquainted with the reviled Sunshine State insects.) Katie Holleys gruesome experience happened in the early morning hours of April 14. Soon after, her sister-in-law „ who works as an editor for Self Magazine „ asked her to pen an essay. She did, in frightening, gut-churning detail thats made thousands of people across the nation wonder if they should sleep with earplugs. Never thought Id be known for such a ridiculous thing lol,Ž she tweeted to a reporter on Thursday. It should be noted that Holley has an extremely positive attitude and healthy sense of humor about an episode that would send many into a spiral of anxiety, including this reporter. I need therapy for a lot of reasons, but this experience blows all of those other reasons out of the water,Ž Holley wrote. Holley, who is 29 and works as a sales and marketing manager in Melbourne on the states east coast, has lived in Florida since 1995. Which means shes seen her fair share of palmetto bugs, which are brown, ubiquitous, and can grow to an inch-and-a-half long or more. It doesnt matter how clean your home is „ its almost a given that every building has one or more. And they come out at night. When I woke up with this weird feeling, I didnt know what it was. But 30 seconds later, stumbling to the bathroom, I knew,Ž she said. I knew there was something in my ear.Ž (Dear Reader, just stop now if youre squeamish. Really.) Holleys next several hours were the stuff of horror movies. She gingerly put a cotton swab in her ear and “shed out two legs. Her husband located the thickest part of the roach that was visibleŽ and tried to extract it, to no avail. (Seriously, it gets worse.) The bug wriggled in her ear on the trip to the hospital. As the doctor administered the Lidocaine, the roach began to ƒ react. Feeling a roach in the throes of death, lodged in a very sensitive part of your body, is unlike anything I can adequately explain,Ž she wrote. A doctor removed three chunks „ but that wasnt the end of the ordeal. (Youve been warned.) Nine days later, Holley still had lingering discomfort and hearing loss, so she went to her family doctor. My physician proceeded to remove the leg and ”ush my ear again, only to examine it and see even more remnants. She ended up pulling out six more pieces of the roachs carcass „ nine days after the incident took place.Ž (Deep breath.) Heres the bad news. This may be upsetting to many people, but its a pretty common thing,Ž said Dr. David Wein, chief of emergency medicine at Tampa General Hospital, who added that the hospital gets a dozen or so cases a year. There are probably not a lot of preventative things you can do. In Florida its really hard, because we all have bugs in our house, no matter how many times you spray.Ž In fact, Holley said, she and her husband had hired an exterminator about a week before the incident. I think its one of those freak things, unfortunately,Ž she said. It happened to me, so its probably not going to happen to you.ŽWomans gruesome roach-in-ear tale goes viralBy TAMARA LUSHASSOCIATED PRESS KATIE HOLLEY VIA APThis undated photo made available by Katie Holley shows the head of a cockroach. Holley woke up in the early morning hours of April 14, to feel something crawling in her ear. After trying to extract a cockroach that had lodged in her ear, Holley had to seek medical attention three times before the whole cockroach was removed. She later wrote about the horric story in Self Magazine. This undated photo sele shows Katie Holley. Police: Puerto Rican woman slain at Florida motel Young otter thrives after being rescued Police: Man electrocuted while adding camera to roof Homeless man charged in Keys fireKISSIMMEE (AP) „ Authorities say a woman who ”ed Hurricane Marias devastation in Puerto Rico has been slain at a Florida motel. The Orlando Sentinel reports that Kissimmee Police said in a charging af“davit that 43-year-old Maria Santiago-Burgos was shot three times Thursday in front of her mother and two children. Police say 38-year-old Leumas Moraza was held without bond on charges of domestic homicide and aggravated assault. According to the police, Moraza and SantiagoBurgos were acquaintances who reconnected in January after she arrived in central Florida, where he lived. Moraza moved in with Santiago-Burgos about a month ago. Police said he shot her during an argument. Osceola County jail records didnt show whether Moraza had an attorney. ORANGE PARK (AP) „ A bewildered and frightened baby otter that took refuge in a Florida womans garage is thriving. The Florida TimesUnion reported Friday that Daisy had taken refuge in the garage of the Orange Park woman who called Clay County Animal Service for help. Clay Humane veterinarian Kali Gennette says Daisy might not have survived if she hadnt been found. Daisy was dehydrated and undernourished. She also had a tiny cut to an ear and super“cial scratches on her paws. ORMOND BEACH (AP) „ Police say a Florida man was electrocuted while attaching a camera to a metal pole on the roof of a house. In a Daytona Beach News-Journal report, Ormond Beach Police of“cials identi“ed the victim as 58-year-old William Spear of Mount Dora. Police said Spear was inspecting the roof Friday and attaching the camera to the pole when the pole touched some power lines. Spear was pronounced dead at a hospital. BIG PINE KEY (AP) „ Authorities say a homeless man has been arrested for starting a “re in a shopping cart that grew into a brush “re in the Florida Keys. In a statement Saturday morning, Monroe County Sheriffs Of“ce spokesman Adam Linhardt said 49-yearold Wynn Edgar Messenger was charged with malicious land burning and failure to control or report a dangerous “re. Linhardt said the “re Friday night prompted evacuations on Big Pine Key before the ”ames were extinguished. He said Messenger admitted starting the “re in a shopping cart in the woods where he lives. Messenger was held on $10,000 bond. | HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEBut Daisy perked up after being given ”uids and diluted formula at the clinic and was transferred to the Wildlife Rescue Coalition of Northeast Florida. Daisy will be vaccinated as a precaution. WASHINGTON „ A frail Sen. John McCain has been receiving a stream of visitors and good wishes at his Arizona ranch as he confronts the aftermath of brain cancer treatment and surgery. Former Vice President Joe Biden sat with McCain for 90 minutes last Sunday, according to people close to both men. Biden followed McCains closest friends, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and retired Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who visited McCain at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix two weeks ago. McCains daughter, Meghan, tweeted Friday that she was heading to her fathers side. Going home to Arizona to be with my family,Ž she tweeted. Thank you all again for your prayers, patience, understanding and compassion during this time. It means the world to me and my entire family.Ž McCain, 81, had hoped to return to the Senate, where hes served since 1987. He has been unable to do so after cancer treatment and surgery for an intestinal infection last month. Despite that, hes “nished work on a new book being released May 22, The Restless Wave.Ž And he continued to advocate for a return to the days when partisans could disagree without demonizing each other. Id like to see us recover our sense that were more alike than different,Ž McCain said in audio excerpts from his book reported by National Public Radio. McCain has ampli“ed his call for more civil politics since his diagnosis in July with glioblastoma. It is the same rare and aggressive brain cancer that felled his friend, Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy, at age 77 in 2009, and Bidens son Beau at 46 in 2015. McCain hasnt been seen in public since December, just before he was hospitalized for a viral infection at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Maryland. He then returned home to Arizona to recover, do physical therapy and continue cancer treatment at the Mayo Clinic. On December 17, his of“ce issued a news release saying he was looking forward to returning to Washington in January. McCain did not return. He has primarily been staying at his family retreat south of Sedona, Arizona, a sprawling and secluded ranch house along treelined Oak Creek where he loves to have family gatherings and barbecue for friends. His daughter, Meghan, was married there in November to Ben Domenech, publisher of the online political and cultural magazine The Federalist. The senator has been known to lead nature tours featuring his extensive knowledge of dozens of species of birds on the property. McCains family and staff have kept news of his condition and treatment private, with his of“ce routinely saying it has no new information to share. In mid-April, it was announced that he had been hospitalized for intestinal surgery needed to stem an infection related to diverticulitis, a condition where the colon develops small bulges that can sometimes become infected. At weeks end, McCain was recuperating, eating well and enjoying the ranch at full bloom, according to a person close to him. The visits by Graham and Lieberman were con“rmed to The Associated Press by people knowledgeable about the meetings, but who spoke on condition of anonymity to respect the familys privacy. His wife, Cindy McCain, tweeted April 23 that he had been released from the hospital, but no of“cial word came from his Senate of“ce.McCain gets visits from friends, family after surgeryBy LAURIE KELLMAN, ALAN FRAM and BOB CHRISTIEASSOCIATED PRESS AP FILE PHOTOIn this Oct. 16, 2017, le photo Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., receives the Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. WHITE SANDS NATIONAL MONUMENT, N.M. „ Researchers studying a trail of fossilized footprints on a remote New Mexico salt ”at have determined the tracks tell the story of a group of Ice Age hunters stalking a giant sloth. Park naturalist David Bustos says the series of tracks and adult and childrens footprints found at White Sands National Monument shows someone followed a now-extinct giant ground sloth, purposely stepping in their tracks as they did so. The team studying the fossil prints detailed its “ndings in the latest edition of the journal Science Advances, the Las Cruces Sun-News reports. The publication has drawn attention to White Sands „ home to the worlds largest “eld of white gypsum sand dunes „ as members of New Mexicos congressional delegation push to raise the monuments pro“le by turning it into a national park. White Sands contains a sizeable collection of fossilized tracks, including saber-toothed cats and wooly mammoths. Its unclear why ancient humans would have stalked the sloth, said team member Matthew Bennett, a professor of environmental and geographical sciences at Bournemouth University in England. The creature „ at 7 to 8 feet tall with long arms and sharp claws „ had a distinct advantage in close-quarter encounters. Adolescent exuberance? Possible but unlikely,Ž Bennett said. We see interesting circles of sloth tracks in these stalked trackways which we call ”ailing circles. These record the rise of the sloth on its hind legs and the swing of its forelegs presumably in a defensive motion.Ž But scientists said there are more human tracks a safe distance away, telling them this was a community action. Bennett believes the tracks show the sloth was turning and swinging at the stalker. We also see human tracks on tiptoes approach these circles; was this someone approaching with stealth to deliver a killer blow while the sloth was being distracted? We believe so,Ž Bennett said. There is a great deal more to learn in the years to come, such as when this episode of hunters and hunted took place, said team member Vince Santucci, the National Park Services senior paleontologist. The Ice Age ended about 11,700 years ago, and the fossil record of ground sloths indicates they were extinct by this time. At White Sands, the scientists used an approach called relative dating to estimate a minimum age for the fossils. Since the footprints are contemporaneous with animals that died out by the end of the Pleistocene, relative dating tells us those footprints are at least 11,700 years old, or older,Ž Santucci said.Scientists say fossilized footprints tell tale of sloth huntTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS NATIONAL PARK SERVICE VIA APThis undated photo provided by the National Park Service shows a human print inside a large sloth track at the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.

By BETH HARRISAssociated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. „ Justify splashed through the slop to win the Kentucky Derby by 2 lengths on Saturday, becoming the first colt in 136 years to wear the roses after not racing as a 2-year-old. The chestnut colt that began his career in February improved to 4-0 „ winning his races by a combined 21 lengths „ and gave Bob Baffert his fifth Derby victory. It snapped a tie and left the 65-year-old trainer trailing only Ben Jones with six. Apollo in 1882 was the last colt to win without racing as a juvenile. Mike Smith earned his second Derby victory. The 52-year-old jockey crossed the finish line at Churchill Downs with only a few specks of mud on his white and green silks in the rainiest Derby in the races 144-year history. Nearly 3 inches fell on the crowd of 157,813 throughout the day. Amazing horse,Ž Smith said. Hes got that it factor.

He knew what was being said about him. He knew that some questioned whether he showed up in the playoffs. He knew that some wondered if he played small in big games. He knew that some doubted if he would ever be an impact player in the games that truly define a players greatness: the playoffs. He had an answer for all the doubters and haters Friday with what might turn out to be the biggest goal of his career. And it just might turn out to be the biggest of the Lightnings season. Want a big goal? Well, they dont get much bigger than this: Stamkos patented one-timer with 7:04 left in regulation tied the score at 3 before Dan Girardis goal 3:18 into overtime gave the Lightning a 4-3 victory over the Bruins in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal. The win gave the Lightning a 3-1 stranglehold on the series, with Game 5 set for Sunday afternoon at Amalie Arena. There were plenty of backs to pat after this one for the Lightning. Brayden Point had a brilliant goal after turning Bruins legend Zdeno Chara into a statue. Nikita Kucherov scored a huge goal. And, of course, Girardi scoring a rare goal for the winner. But make no mistake, the goal of the night belonged to Stamkos. And he was due. The day before Game 4, Stamkos sat as his locker and patiently answered questions that were polite but essentially translated to: What the heck is wrong with you?Stamkos saves Game 4, proves doubters wrongNHL COMMENTARYAP PHOTOTampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos, far right, heads to the bench after celebrating his goal in the third period of Game 4 against the Boston Bruins on Friday in Boston. By TOM JONESTampa Bay TimesBOSTON „ Oops, he did it again. Boston pest Brad Marchand has licked another opponent. This time it was Lightning F Ryan Callahan after the two got into a shoving match after Marchand hit Callahan low in the second period of the Lightnings 4-3 overtime win in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal Friday. Marchand also licked the Maple Leafs Leo Komarov in their firstround series, and the NHL reportedly called the Bruins after the series to ask them to tell Marchand to quit licking opponents. Now the Lightning wants something done about it. I dont know what the difference is in that and spitting in somebodys face,Ž Callahan said. Its unfortunate that he goes to that level to do that. But it doesnt take us off our game.Ž But it is annoying, especially considering Marchand has a reputation for such behavior. Theres absolutely no place in our game for that,Ž Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. I dont understand it.

They broke out of that slump Saturday with an 8-6 win over the Bradenton Marauders „ totaling 13 hits and four extra-base knocks. It feels better now,Ž Stone Crabs manager Reinaldo Ruiz said. It feels better the boys swung the bat really well.Ž Peter Maris and David Rodriguez were partly responsible for seven of the eight Stone Crab runs in the victory. Maris hit his second home run of the week with a two-run shot in the sixth inning, which gave Charlotte an 8-4 lead at the time. He finished his day a triple shy of the cycle with three RBI and a run scored. Hes been really good for the team and thats why hes been playing more often,Ž Ruiz said of Maris, who is hitting .405 in 11 games this season. Rodriguez gave the Stone Crabs a 6-1 lead when his two-out single plated three runs, picking up two RBI on the base knock and getting some help from Lucius Foxs baserunning to force a throwing error and bring in the third run. In that inning, with bases laid and two outs, Rodriguez came through and gave us those security runs,Ž Ruiz said. His first-inning double sparked a tworun, two-out rally and set the tone for the rest of the game after Bradenton Starter Oddy Nunez struck out the first two batters on six pitches. Rodriguez finished 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. I had a bad year last year swinging, so I had to make some adjustments,Ž Rodriguez said. I put the work in and thats it. Thats the only thing Ive done, is making an adjustments.Ž Rodriguez is currently on a 13-game hit streak and is hitting .441 over his last 15 games with 16 RBI in that time. Although Nunez allowed 11 hits over 4 ‡ innings of work, his line couldve been much worse had he not stranded eight Stone Crabs on base in the first four innings. We left a lot of runners in scoring position,Ž Ruiz said. Thats one thing that was not an issue early, but right now we definitely have some chances to score more runs.Ž On the mound for Charlotte was Brandon Lawson who had a decent outing. Lawson surrendered three runs on six hits and three walks over five-plus innings of work. He did not have any strikeouts. J.D. Busfield and Adrian Navas pitched the final four innings, allowing three runs and making things interesting in the ninth inning with the tying run at the plate and nobody out. „ Contact Bryan Levine at blevine@sun-herald.com.MILB STONE CRABS 8, MARAUDERS 6Maris, Rodriguez lead CrabsSTONE CRABS 8, MARAUDERS 6Bradenton AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

After the Raptors tied it on rookie OG Anunobys 3-pointer with eight seconds left, James took the inbounds pass, dribbled the length of the floor and in one motion, dropped his 10-footer in front of Torontos stunned bench. The Cavs ran and mobbed James and moments later he was back up on the scorers table „ just like after a game-winner against Indiana last round „ to celebrate a win that was up for grabs.

But this is a guy who seems to have his head on straight. Hes not just playing hockey right now. Hes going to school. And not just any school. Hes finishing the semester at Harvard. Donato played at Harvard as a junior this season and also represented the United States in the Olympics in South Korea. His Harvard season ended in March, and he immediately signed with the Bruins, for whom his father, Ted, used to play. But though he left the Harvard team, he didnt leave the school. Hes still taking classes. Thats what he chose, and were fine with it,Ž Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. While his teammates are busy watching TV or going out during downtime on the road, Donato, a sociology major, is studying. Hes studying a lot, trying to graduate as soon as possible. I just want to be ready for the games, so if its close to a game, Im staying at the hotel so Ill stay focused,Ž he told the Boston Globe, and maybe if we get back from a road trip at 3 a.m., I get a ride from one of the guys and get dropped off at the dorm.Ž Finals are coming up soon.

Not exactly gamebreaking stuff. But Stamkos dismissed the negativity and responded with a goal that saved the Lightnings night and possibly ruined the Bruins season. It was almost like Stammer saying, I had enough,  Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. Stamkos set up shop in the slot and absolutely blistered a one-timer past Tuukka Rask for what was also possibly the biggest goal of his career. Its obviously a big goal,Ž Stamkos said. But in saying that, we come to the playoffs to win hockey games. Obviously, you want to produce. You want these moments. But theres a reason why weve been very successful as a team in the regular season and now in the playoffs. Its because there are very good players on this team. Its not about one guy.Ž Perhaps, but it does become noticeable when one guy who is considered a superstar doesnt have superstar results in the postseason. It doesnt matter how hard he plays (and Stamkos always plays hard). It doesnt matter all the little things he does (he does them all). It doesnt matter how good of a leader he is (and he is good). And it doesnt matter how many chances he gets (and he has been getting plenty). Only one thing matters: If you are a scorer, you need to score. And Stamkos had not been scoring. Entering Game 4, he had gone 18 playoff games without an even-strength goal. So did he hear the outside noise about it? Sure,Ž Stamkos said. Any time you have a lot of success in the regular season, you just want to seamlessly transition into the playoffs. Its hard to produce in the regular season, never mind the playoffs, when its very tight checking when youre playing really good hockey teams.Ž But ƒ We knew it was going to come,Ž Stamkos continued. Its percentages. You keep working hard. You keep shooting the puck. You keep working the way youve done in the past, its going to happen.Ž Know what else happened? The Lightning never got rattled in a game that had the ups and downs of a roller coaster. And just as many thrills, too. The Lightning jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals by Point and Kucherov, only to see the Bruins storm back with two power-play goals and a shorthanded one early in the third that wouldve broken the back of most teams. But because of Stamkos, the Lightning tied the score. Yeah, its always nice to do it in a big win,Ž Stamkos said. This win couldnt have been bigger. The Lightning comes back to Tampa Bay after winning two games in a building in which it had won only nine times since 1992. Its always nice to win a game, especially the magnitude of this one,Ž Stamkos said. Our line has been talking a lot about wanting to have a better game. Obviously, its not a matter of will. We knew eventually it was going to come.Ž And it could not have come at a better time. For Stamkos. And, especially, the Lightning.STAMKOSFrom Page 1By FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA „ The Tampa Bay Lightning understand what it takes to be successful in the Stanley Cup playoffs. And as the Vegas Golden Knights are also showing, the winning formula can vary from game to game and series to series. Dominant defense is part of the equation. So is timely and opportunistic offense. Mental toughness is a prerequisite. It pays to be resilient, too. I just think any time youre winning games, youre battling through something,Ž Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. Maybe a better way to put it is youre making a big play at the right time,Ž Cooper added. It seems teams that move on often are doing that, and teams that dont miss out on opportunities.Ž The Lightnings latest victory has them one away from the teams third trip to the Eastern Conference final in four years, a step they can take by beating the Boston on Sunday (3 p.m. ET, NBC) at home in Game 5 of their best-ofseven semifinal. The Golden Knights, meanwhile, lead their second-round series against the San Jose Sharks 3-2 and can secure a spot in the Western Conference final by winning Game 6 on the road Sunday night (7:30 p.m., NBCSN). Id be the first one to tell you weve accomplished nothing,Ž Cooper said. Weve won a couple of games in this series. Youve got to win four, not three.Ž Tampa Bays Alex Killorn, who had the primary assist on Dan Girardis overtime goal that pushed the Bruins to the brink of elimination in Game 4, said theres a sense of urgency to end the series and avoid a return trip to Boston. I think it has to looked at that way,Ž Killorn said. Thats a great team. You go back to Boston, you give them a chance to get back in the series, you never know what will happen.Ž As tempting as it may to be think about how close the Golden Knights are to reaching the Westeren Conference final, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury said the teams mind-set is much the same as its been all season. I think we had this mentality all year long: its all about the next game,Ž the three-time Stanley Cup champion said. Vegas can become the third team in NHL history to win multiple series in its inaugural season. The leagues first-ever postseason saw the Toronto Arenas win the 1918 NHL Final against the Montreal Canadiens before defeating the Pacific Coast Hockey Associations Vancouver Millionaires to win the Stanley Cup. In 1968, the St. Louis Blues defeated the Philadelphia Flyers and Minnesota North Stars to emerge from the all-expansion West Division to advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

By KAREL JANICEKAssociated PressHERNING, Denmark „ South Koreas debut at the world ice hockey championship was memorable for the wrong reason as it lost to Finland 8-0 on Saturday. Also, France beat Belarus 6-2 to rebound from losing to Russia 7-0 on Friday in Group A in Copenhagen. Latvia outlasted Norway to win 3-2 in overtime, and Switzerland prevailed over Austria 3-2, also in overtime. Sebastian Aho scored twice and added two assists for Finland. His NHL teammate Teuvo Teravainen also had a goal and three assists. Weve been playing together a couple years now, we know our game pretty good, and we know where we are on the ice,Ž Teravainen said. We just try to make some plays and have some fun.Ž Canada-born Matt Dalton in the South Korea goal made 37 saves. You cannot give up three short-handed goals,Ž Dalton said. Its a different level.Ž South Korea next faces Canada. Latvias Rudolfs Balcers scored just 24 seconds into overtime to settle their match with Norway in Herning. Anders Bastiansen and Alexander Bonsaksen established a 2-0 lead for Norway before Balcers reduced the deficit with his first goal and Rodrigo Abols equalized in the third period. Enzo Corvi scored the winner for Switzerland with 1:42 remaining against Austria in Copenhagen. Nino Niederreiter and Gaetan Haas also had a goal each for a Swiss 2-0 lead. With eight minutes remaining in the second, Austria defenseman Steven Strong received a hit from Sven Andrighetto and was taken off on a stretcher. Dominic Zwerger scored the first goal for Austria on the subsequent power play and Manuel Ganahl equalized in the final period, forcing overtime. Later Saturday, the United States faced Denmark a day after beating tournament favorite Canada, and the Czech Republic took on Slovakia.HOCKEYFinland routs Korea 8-1 in worlds debut, US faces DenmarkAP PHOTOFinlands Sebastian Aho after scoring a goal during the Ice Hockey World Championships match between Finland and South Korea at the Jyske bank Boxen arena in Herning, Denmark, on Saturday By REGINA GARCIA CANO AND W.G. RAMIREZAssociated PressLAS VEGAS „ The Golden Knights goldand-grey-on-black helmets are everywhere. Theyre on T-shirts and hats worn by mall patrons, on jerseys of moviegoers, on stuffed animals, on mugs and on bumper stickers deep in suburbia. Bars far from the citys tourist-driven areas show the games on TV, and watch parties have become a regular activity. The arena rocks when the expansion team that has taken the league by storm appears on its home ice. A city that for years longed for a major sports franchise has truly embraced the Knights. Its so much different live than it is on TV. Its a whole different experience,Ž said David Santangelo, a Las Vegas resident who is a season ticket holder and longtime hockey fan. People fall in love with it. So many people I talk to at work are saying that they didnt know it was so exciting. People are really starting to learn about it now.Ž Santangelo, who was wearing a Knights jersey, was among hundreds who attended a party Monday in downtown Las Vegas to watch Game 3 of the Knights second-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks. The Golden Knights have a 3-2 series lead after a 5-3 victory over San Jose on Friday night. For years, questions were raised over whether the touristdriven city with a long history of hosting big events could support a big league team night after night. Gambling and a relatively small market size steered major franchises elsewhere. Before the Knights dropped the puck, there were naysayers even though initial ticket demand was high. Average game attendance at T-Mobile Arena is now 18,042. Tourists and comped high-rollers have surely caught games. So have tennis greats Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, rapper Lil Jon, poker pro Daniel Negreanu and slugger Bryce Harper before baseball season started. But defying some of those early predictions, its been regular residents and their children who have filled the stands game after game. The crowds bode well for the NFLs Raiders, who are due to move to Sin City in 2020. The Knights „ who were 200-1 at many sports books to win the Stanley Cup before the season began „ proudly declare themselves Vegas Born. Their success on the ice has certainly influenced attendance, but it may also have to do with the citys desperate need for fellowship around the time the season opened. The Knights home opener in October came only a few days after the city suffered the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The team retired jersey No. 58 during its final home game of the regular season to honor the victims. A banner with 58 stars was hoisted into the rafters. The victims names were also projected on the ice. I think because all the players are from different places and Las Vegas is a melting pot of people from different places, its just really brought community together to have our own team,Ž said fan Angel Ashby. This is a Vegas-born team. It isnt from somewhere else.Ž NHLVegas has fallen in love with Golden Knights

franchise quarterback, is loosening his arm on one of the three manicured practice fields in the shadow of a $40 million indoor practice facility. In a parallel universe, Freeman would be in the prime of his NFL career with the Bucs. He would be earning at least the $21 million the Bucs plan to pay Winston if he plays in 2019 under the fifth-year option. But now 30, Freeman breeds snakes back at his home in Kansas City. He plays basketball and volleyball to stay in shape, isnt married, has no children and misses the competition that pro football provides. I mean, you can go to the gym and, like, play basketball as hard as you can,Ž Freeman said. But you cant really compete. You dont sit and prepare all week to go kick some kids (butt) in basketball. What kind of loser is that?Ž It has been nearly three years since the last pass Freeman threw in an NFL game. It came in Week 17 of the 2015 season with the Indianapolis Colts. Freeman still looks the part. During warmups at Dodgertown, with streets lined with baseballshaped lamp posts and streets named after Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella, he easily flicked slant routes to his CFL teammates. No other quarterback on the Alouettes roster can match his resume. They come from small schools like Missouri State, Tiffin and Butler. Freeman is the only one who has played in the NFL. Im just a humble guy,Ž Freeman said. I dont think its that sort of thing. I think its just working because Im kind of in no mans land in the CFL. I havent accomplished anything. Im a rookie again ƒ theres that mutual respect. Other than that, guys probably dont know me from Adam.Ž But not that long ago, Freeman was supposed to be the face of the Bucs franchise. Freeman sat the bench the first seven games of his NFL rookie season. But 2010 was a magical year. The Bucs went 10-6, narrowly missed the playoffs, and Freeman passed for 3,451 yards with 25 touchdowns and only six interceptions. After a 4-2 start in 2011, the Bucs lost 10 straight games and Morris was fired. Freemans TD to INT ratio fell to ‡Greg Schiano was hired to change the daycare culture in the locker room. At first, Freeman thrived with the change. He got red-hot during a five-game stretch with 13 TDs and three INTs. That was the highlight. Freemans performance plummeted, there were stories about his poor work habits. Tuesdays are the players day off but quarterbacks come to work to get the new game plan. In December of 2012, Freeman spent a Tuesday posing for duplicates of Michael Jacksons Thriller and Off the Wallalbum covers for ESPN the Magazine. This put Schiano over the edge. Freeman was a ringer for the King of Pop, but he no longer resembled the transcendent quarterback the Bucs needed. Yeah, it wasnt habits,Ž Freeman said, staring down at the outfield grass. Id say its just being more emotionally consistent. Theres ups and downs. Theres ways you can handle it and react to things and it is better if you sway toward logic instead of emotion.Ž By the start of 2013, Schiano learned Freeman was in the leagues substance abuse program. He observed the frequent drug tests. The NFLs drug program is hands off for NFL teams. Its handled at the league level. Schiano wanted to help Freeman. The mere thought of his quarterback with a substance-abuse issue drove him crazy. When Freeman wasnt voted a captain in 2013, there were accusations that Schiano rigged the player vote, a charge he denied. Freeman eventually admitted he had a prescription for Adderall to treat ADHD. However, he said in 2012, he accidentally took Ritalin, which triggered a positive test. When the Bucs opened against the Jets in New York, Freeman didnt check in at breakfast as required, nearly missed the last team bus and was fined. After an 0-3 start, he was made inactive. Then he arranged an interview with ESPN, asking for his release. Thats, I mean you look at it, I mean, hes the head coach and your job is to win football games, as a coach, as a player,Ž Freeman said. I think it just became too much drama and too much distraction for everybody. I cant say if I was in the same position, I wouldnt have made the same choice. In all honestly, I was 25 and probably coul d have done better.Ž The CFL offers a lot of adjustments. The field of play is 110 by 65 yards, rather than the NFLs 100 by 53 ‡ yards. There are 12 players on the field for each team instead of 11. A team has three downs to advance the football 10 yards, not four. All players in the backfield besides the quarterback may go in motion. Last year, one week before the start of the regular season, the Alouettes called Freemans agent wanting a look at another quarterback. Freeman said the timing was bad. As he was getting more and more interest in the CFL I told him, youre young,Ž Freemans agent, Larikus Scott, told the Montreal Gazette. You can go to Canada and play. You can stay there forever or you can play for two years. If some NFL team calls, youre 31 at the end of it. For quarterbacks, thats the prime.Ž Former Packers coach Mike Sherman, who was hired to coach the Alouettes, says nothing is promised to Freeman. There is no leading candidate in my mind,Ž Sherman said. I want to see them all throw and I want to see them all lead. In the CFL, on all the really good teams they have good leaders, not just good quarterbacks. So its going to be a wide open camp.Ž Page 6 SP www.yoursun.com Sunday, May 6, 2018 / The SunFREEMANFrom Page 1 Course Totally Renovated!!941-423-6955www.heroncreekgcc.com 5301 Heron Creek Blvd. North Port, FL 34287 Sumter Blvd. Between U.S. 41 & I-75, Exit 18227-Holes Arthur Hills Designed NEWULTRADWARF TIFEAGLE GREENS adno=720584Golf Special!Includes Golf & a Drink (Draf Beer, House Wine or Soft Drink) at the Grille Room after your round of golfExpires 5/13/18 $39All Day$140(Anytime) 4 Player Special adno=50536433By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. „ Quail Hollow was softer and shorter, producing one low score after another before the final groups even started Saturday in the Wells Fargo Championship. Jason Day wasnt paying attention, which probably helped. When he sputtered at the start, there was no reason to panic that he wasnt taking advantage of a great day for scoring. And when Day finally picked up his first birdie by blasting a 9-iron out of the rough with the wind at his back from 195 yards to 18 inches on the ninth hole, he was on his way. Day made five birdies over his last 10 holes for a 4-under 67, giving him a two-shot lead as he goes for his second PGA Tour victory this year. I was just staying in my own world, staying in my lane and not really thinking about it too much,Ž Day said. I knew that if I could just get myself in position ... dont do anything too silly out there and find a way to get back into the swing of things, that I could come out of this on the better half.Ž Day finished with a daring play on the 18th. With his bare feet in the stream and the ball on the bank well above his feet, he hit a full wedge to the back of the green for a two-putt par. He was at 10-under 203. Nick Watney overcame a double bogey on the par-5 10th hole with four birdies over his last six holes for a 66. He will be in the final group for the first time in nearly four years as he tries to win for the first time since a back injury two years ago. To get back in contention, thats why I play golf. Im super, super excited,Ž Watney said. Im just going to try to embrace everything that comes with tomorrow and hope I have a chance down the last.Ž Peter Uihlein finished the front nine with five straight birdies and started the back nine with an eagle. He shot 62, one off Rory McIlroys course record, and wound up three shots out of the lead and in the penultimate group. Phil Mickelson shot a 64, his best score of the year. He starts Sunday four shots out of the lead. McIlroy threeputted the last hole and still shot 66. As a testament to the conditions, all he did was shrug. I didnt play that well. The score sort of flatters me,Ž he said. Tiger Woods, who started the third round on the same score as Uihlein, Mickelson and McIlroy, failed to take advantage on a course that was set up 228 yards shorter and was soft enough that players actually found pitch marks on the green. Woods finally got going on the back nine with three straight birdies, but a three-putt bogey on the final hole gave him a 68. He was nine shots behind. Peter Malnatis 36-hole lead didnt last long. He had a pair of double bogeys, shot 75 and fell seven shots behind. PGA Tour rookie Aaron Wise nearly had a collapse late until he salvaged a most unlikely bogey. Wise, the NCAA champion from Oregon two years ago, pulled his approach left of the 18th green. It bounded over the stream to the other side. With his ball on a sharp downslope a few feet from the rock-framed banks of the stream, he considered a penalty drop that would have taken double bogey out of the picture. Instead, he tried a flop shot and his wedge slid under the ball for a whiff. He hit the next one across the green to 40 feet, and knocked that in for bogey. Two bogeys over the last three holes gave him a 70. That was going to be a devastating hole,Ž he said. So to turn it into a bogey ... it gives me a shot tomorrow.Ž Day is in charge, but not in the clear. He has won four out of five times when hes had the 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour, and it helps that he doesnt have too much experience behind him. Watney hasnt won in nearly six years. Uihlein still hasnt won on the PGA Tour. Also three shots back were Bryson DeChambeau (66), Paul Casey (69) and Wise. Id much rather be in this position than chasing,Ž Day said. He already has won this year at Torrey Pines in a playoff over Alex Noren. Day has found the desire than he lost last year, and the 30-year-old Australian does not feel that far off from that dominant run two years ago that took him to No. 1 in the world. I feel like its right on the end of the tip,Ž he said, smiling and rubbing together the tips of his fingers. Im driving it better than I ever have before in my career. Im No. 1 in putting and my short game has come back nicely. I definitely think its just around the corner. Its not too far.ŽGOLF WELLS FARGO CHAMPIONSHIP J ason Day seizes control at Quail Hollow with 2-shot lead the race. He gunned Justify out of the No. 7 spot in the starting gate „ something Baffert said had to happen „ and the colts early speed helped hook leader Promises Fulfilled from the start. When he got away clean, then I thought we had a chance,Ž Baffert said. We had to get away. Then Mike took his time.Ž They set a blistering pace through the muck, going a half-mile in 45.77 seconds. Entering the final turn, Justify took the lead and kept on going to the finish under Smiths left-handed whip. Justify, the 5-2 favorite in the field of 20, ran 1 miles in 2:04.20. He paid $7.80, $6 and $4.40. Good Magic returned $9.20 and $6.60, while Audible was another head back in third and paid $5.80 to show. Good Magic was the only horse to have a serious shot at Justify turning for home. Good Magic, under Jose Ortiz, drifted out while Justify and Smith kept a clear and straight inside path. Now, Baffert is in position to make another run at the Triple Crown. Three years ago, he trained American Pharoah to the first sweep of the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 37 years. Instilled Regard, an 85-1 shot, was fourth, followed by My Boy Jack, Bravazo and Hofburg. Lone Sailor was eighth, followed by Vino Rosso, Solomini, Firenze Fire, Bolt dOro, Flameaway, Enticed, Promises Fulfilled, Free Drop Billy, Noble Indy, Combatant and Magnum Moon. Mendelssohn, trying to become the first Europe-based horse to win the Derby, finished last, beaten by 73 lengths.DERBYFrom Page 1AP PHOTOJason Day, of Australia, watches his tee shot on the sixth hole during the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournament at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., on Saturday. By DAN GELSTONAssociated PressDOVER, Del. „ Jimmie Johnson wore a helmet painted in tribute to boyhood race hero Cale Yarborough. He then went out and tied the Hall of Famer on NASCARs career wins list last year at Dover. For Johnson, winning at Dover had become the norm „ his 11 wins on the mile track are easily the record. His victory was already his third of the season and the hunt for a record eighth championship was roaring ahead. Until it stalled. He had just two top-10s over the next 12 races, fell out of title contention and never finished a race better than third. He opened this season by wrecking out of the Daytona 500 and has just one top-five in 10 races. The 42-year-old Johnson is used to racking up the kind of milestones that have made him a surefire Hall of Famer. But his return to Dover marks a rather ignominious distinction „ hes riding the longest losing streak of his career at 33 races. Is it over at Dover? Well get it close, and history shows that,Ž Johnson said. Hopefully we get it perfect and we can have the day that we really want to have and get back to victory lane. But it does take a little pressure off me knowing that this is my best track and knowing that this is my favorite track.Ž The Hendrick Motorsports driver swept Dover in 2002 and 2009 and won races in 2005, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017. He also joined NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty (Martinsville-15, North Wilkesboro-15, Richmond-13, Rockingham-11) and Darrell Waltrip (Bristol-12, Martinsville-11) as drivers to win 11 races at a single track. His 83rd career victory tied him with Yarborough for sixth on the career victory list. Waltrip and Bobby Allison are next at 84. NASCAR Johnson looks to break losing streak at Dover
